Do Nothing




This is the latest foreign policy nightmare of epic proportions (if only Obama would lead!) that is facing America as we slide into the abyss and end up in danger of being wiped off the face of the Earth (according to our media, of course):

Two separate close encounters between the Russian and U.S. militaries in recent days have left many wondering if future incidents could result in an armed clash.

Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters Monday, "There have been repeated incidents over the past year where Russian aircraft have come close enough to other air and sea traffic to raise serious safety concerns."

    "Unsafe and unprofessional actions by a single pilot have the potential to unnecessarily escalate tensions between the two countries," he added.

    After two Russian fighter jets flew within 30 feet of the USS Donald Cook last Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry warned that the Russian action could have resulted in the jets being shot down.

    Kerry told CNN en EspaƱol that "under the rules of engagement, that could have been a shoot-down, so people need to understand that this is serious business."

    Do nothing. Do absolutely nothing in the face of Russian insecurity and they will continue to fall apart. The Russian military forces are certainly capable of operations, but they are hollowed out and barely held together with what little Russia can still spend on weapons. Operate as if they do not exist and that will continue to drive them crazy. Let their pilots risk their own lives; let them blow out engines and waste resources accomplishing nothing. The Russians can no longer project their forces beyond a very small logistical chain that has all but collapsed. 

    Do not feed the bear. They're just trollin' y'all.

    Democrats Are Trying to Save America

    Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

    But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
    As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

    Spoiler Alert

    Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
    Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

    Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

    It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

    Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

    Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

    Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

    Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

    Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

    Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

    Everyone ch…
