The Fragile State of Putin’s Mind is Costing Russian Lives

In recent weeks, since Russia’s vicious and unprovoked assault on Ukraine, there have been many curious rumors afloat about Vladimir Putin: that he is dying of colon cancer, that he is deeply paranoid, that he is maniacally obsessed with rebuilding the old Russian Empire beginning with Ukraine, and that he is mentally unstable.   

As we watch the tragedy unfold in Ukraine at the hands of the Russian military, there is an image of Putin that is making the rounds of intelligence circles: 

There sits Putin, deep in his bunker, protected by his carefully chosen Chechen bodyguards, and uninformed about what is really happening in Ukraine, because his generals are afraid to give him the bad news. Putin thinks Russia is winning. He does not know, they say, that it is not Russia victorious,’ preparing for its victory parade down the streets of Kyiv, but Russian tanks heading for the hills to “regroup and resupply.” 

Word is that Putin is becoming increasingly delusional and that he sits alone in his bunker, where he carries on long conversations . . . with Peter the Great and Ivan the Terrible, great names from Russian history but long gone from this world. They don’t talk back to him or criticize him. And he cannot arrest them or have them put to death.

Can a man in such a mental state really have his finger on the nuclear button that enables him to control the destiny of the world? He has been talking about the possibility of using nuclear weapons against Ukraine. And he does not know that his troops are withdrawing. They say that they are moving away from the center of fighting in order to regroup and restock – fuel, ammunition, and food for the troops. But when they withdraw, they leave a vacuum, which the Ukrainian troops rush in to fill. 

The Russians have left a huge swath of destruction in their wake, cities that have been totally destroyed by Russian missiles with thousands of dead and wounded Ukrainians on the mangled earth. But the Ukrainians are nevertheless still standing and still fighting, and they have regained significant ground. Parts of the country that had been captured by Russian troops are now back under Ukrainian control. And the Ukrainian people are prepared to fight for every inch of their country.

If Putin is really sitting in his bunker talking to dead heroes, and oblivious to the defeat that his troops are facing in Ukraine, he will no doubt start to wonder why there hasn’t already been a victory parade through the streets of Kyiv. And if he discovers how badly he has been deceived by his own people, how will his rage express itself? In the arrest of senior officers? In the unleashing of nuclear weapons in Ukraine? To what lengths will his demented mind take the world?

Predicting the near future in these uncertain times is risky at best. Tomorrow is likely to be as full of surprises as yesterday was. And while the future of Ukraine hangs in the balance, the Biden administration is taking its time to fulfill its promises to deliver weapons to Ukraine, where every single day matters, where life and death are a constant struggle for the Ukrainian people on the ground. 

Biden appears to be afraid to rattle Putin’s cage. It seems to be the policy of this administration not to antagonize Putin. So Biden has dragged his feet in a slow walk to provide the weapons he promised to Ukraine.

The Biden administration delayed the delivery of the first stingers until the end of January, while Russian forces were building up near the Ukrainian border in Russia and Belarus. And he refused to impose significant sanctions on Russia until after there was actually a war in Ukraine. 

Biden’s mental state is also in question, but he has neither Putin’s unchallenged power nor his unbridled viciousness. He is simply too weak and unable to carry the heavy responsibilities of his office with honor. In his weakness and mental vagueness, he presents a grave danger to the country that he is sworn to serve. 

On the other hand, Putin has always portrayed himself as a man of great physical strength and power as the head of the Russian government. So today, the picture of him sitting alone in his bunker, talking to ghosts, is one of pathos and terror, as his hand rests uncomfortably close to the nuclear button. What the world needs to recognize ⏤ and to fear ⏤ as it continues to spin towards chaos without the leadership it so desperately needs ⏤is that we are now in what may be the most dangerous time in the history of the world. At one minute to midnight, it’s time to wake up.

Biden’s absolute first priority should be defending the southern border of the USA. Second, just don’t say or do anything to worsen or inflame the situation between Russia and Ukraine. But Biden and his family, as well as the rest of the Democrat Party (Hillary Clinton, talking about you) are too intertwined with corruption in Ukraine AND Russia to focus on anything but protecting their own interests.

There is a number of countries that are not interested in peace They benefit from this war. I hope to see some real analysis in the future not PR. A handful of countries with reasonable leadership are pushing for peace. I hope more and more countries will eventually line up behind Turkey, Israel , Bulgaria, Hungary ( No lethal weapon shipments but peace talks.) Unfortunately the US does not seem to be interested in the peace negotiations so people will die in this totally preventable and unnecessary war.

He has ruled Russia long enough only to see it humiliated in war, finally bankrupting it, and losing billions in yachts, dachas, oil, and its outdated military equipment.

All fer nuth’n. The moron should be hanged with whatever leftover rope they can find.

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 

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

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.”

The Case of the Diaper Rash Goes all the way to the Supreme Court

Mr. Thompson and his fiancee were preparing to go to bed when, unbeknownst to them, Talleta’s sister Camille called 911, apparently mistaking crying and diaper rash as a sign of abuse. Although Mr. Thompson did refuse to grant the police entry into his apartment, he was well within his rights since they did not have a warrant. Mr. Thompson was defending the law, while the police were the ones violating it…

Wind, Solar & Electric Cars Put the American Taxpayer on a ‘Green Hook’

It is impossible to believe that these new and improved things, wind, solar and electric cars, are not presented as deliberate efforts to fraudulently promote this to the American taxpayer, who is now on a “green hook” financially. Ideology and financial gain can cause intelligent people to fall for really dumb ideas, which is inexcusable…

Democrats Seeing Cracks in the Party Foundation

Nancy Pelosi opined that tension is developing between Obama and his unwanted 3rd term successor Joe Biden. According to Pelosi, “Obama is envious of Biden!’ Why? Biden is a slug, and Obama, burdened with an overabundance of self-confidence while exploiting the gullible, didn’t anticipate the stiff wall of resolve most Americans really felt in watching Obama “fundamentally” change America…
