American Weakness Ushers in Cold War 2.0

In case anyone is wondering just what Vladimir Putin’s ultimate goal is, the answer is really pretty simple. What’s taking place in Eastern Europe right now isn’t about Ukraine. It’s about Vladimir Putin wanting to rub America’s nose in it. He wants revenge for the gloating and insults he feels were heaped upon Mother Russia by American politicians following the collapse of the then Soviet Union in 1992.

Americans ballyhooed to the world how we defeated Soviet communism without firing a shot. Which really wasn’t true, many shots were fired and a lot of lives were lost in a Cold War that lasted for roughly fifty years, and took place on nearly every continent.

When the Soviet Union collapsed Vladimir Putin was severely stung by it. He took it personally. Above all else, Putin considers himself a Russian patriot. He resented the insults and especially what he perceived as all the gloating going on in the West.

And he vowed to himself then and there that one day he would return Russia’s honor and rightful place as a world superpower. As the old saying goes, patience is a virtue. And in the case of Vladimir Putin, he indeed was a patient man. He believed based on history that America would be led once again by someone that he could muscle.

When Barack Obama moved into the White House Putin recognized that Obama was a weak and timid individual, and that the focus of his administration was all about ‘social justice’. Putin exploited this by moving into the former Soviet republic of Georgia, and then followed by his annexation of Crimea. For neither of which did Russia pay any real price.

The Trump presidency offered a different dynamic, and Putin suspended his aggressive tactics for a while, not really certain what kind of president⏤Donald Trump was. For Putin one thing was certain though, Donald Trump was not going to be someone that he could push around or bluff.

With all the turmoil in American politics, Putin was pretty sure that the tides would change. At least if nothing else, President Trump would be distracted by all the attacks against him, and politically his options in dealing with Russia would be more difficult because of the Democrats in Washington. Which proved to be true.

Once Joe Biden was installed into the White House, Putin must have leaped for joy. Putin knew that Biden was a corrupt man, and also that he had never been a very intelligent man before his dementia started to take control.

Putin also knew that the real power behind Biden and the person pulling his strings was Barack Obama. The same weak and morally corrupt individual who Putin laughed at right to his face before. All bets were now off, and Putin’s goal of reestablishing Russian domination of Eastern Europe, and hopefully all of Europe were back on track. And then Putin would be the one to be gloating.

That’s what we now face as a country.

A resurgent Russia led by Vladimir Putin who is determined to exact revenge against anyone who ever rejoiced over the fall of the Soviet Union, and levied insults against Mother Russia. So buckle up folks, the Cold War 2.0 is upon us, and it will indeed touch our shores, perhaps through attacks on our infrastructure, as well as our economy.

Putin views America as weak and decadent. We are. He believes our military leadership is more interested in who someone has sex with, and which bathroom they should use⏤than winning battles. He’s right. He no longer respects nor fears our once-formidable military might.

Putin knows that our military leaders lack the warrior mentality. It’s not allowed anymore. Nor do we think strategically. Putin is a chess player, and he is thinking two or three moves ahead of us. While we’re still setting up our pieces on the chessboard. And Putin will continue to exploit that.

Sadly, because of America’s distraction with social justice issues, our national security has been diminished. The damage being done will take many years to repair, if we will be able to repair it at all.

The Cold War 2.0 is upon us whether we like it or not. The next three years will determine whether or not we survive as a world leader, or we become just another follower, grateful for the scraps thrown our way.

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) seems unaware that in a “non-carbon future,” everything would be dead since carbon is the primary building block of life. Undeterred, the AP release from Beyer’s office claimed: “Warmer temperatures are lowering workers’ incomes, and the increased severity and frequency of natural disasters is lowering overall economic growth…The cost of inaction will be catastrophic.”
