    I don’t condone any country invading or trying to take over another country but I find it interesting how we will demand that Russia or China keep out of some other country’s business while we constantly get involved all over the world. We need to listen to our own advice.

    Will Russia attack, unfortunately I do not think sanctions will stop them. The question what is, Putin long game. Until we know that we better get ready for war and hope we don’t end up in one.

    Putin wants to meet Biden in person where Biden can’t rely on a teleprompter. Lisa is spot on. Why now?Putin’s approval ratings are going down as Russians resist vaccinations and decry the economic hardships brought on by the pandemic.The Kremlin remembers his stratospheric ratings of almost 90 percent after Crimea’s annexation, and a new war or escalation may distract the public from domestic problems and boost Putin’s popularity.He also seeks to restore dialogue with the West, especially the US, and amassing an army next to Ukraine has worked already.In the spring, tens of thousands of troops were deployed next to Ukraine – and in June, Putin got his first face-to-face meeting with US President Joe Biden.The presidents held a two-hour video conference on December 7, and Biden threatened Putin with tougher economic sanctions and a reposition of NATO troops in Europe.But Putin still wants to see him in person.“We will definitely meet, I would really like that,” he told Biden, according to a video released by Russian media on Tuesday.

    Absolutely brilliant cartooning, ominous but funny. Unfortunately Lisa has revealed herself to be usually in the pocket of our corporate masters; so I assume this impactful image is a jab at Biden.

    ‘West Run by Satanic Pedophiles’ Says Putin By: NN via anonews.co

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has spoken out against the epidemic of pedophile networks that have taken over the United States, UK, and other Western nations. -anonews.co

    Joe is facilitating pedophilia and Putin sees the same pics we do of Hunter with little girls on the laptop from hell. You think he has something over Joe?

    Biden says “drop it!” Bear says “make me!” Now what? Sanctions? The US should have slapped sanctions on Russia when they ANNEXED Crimea making Putins head spin back to Moscow! If the US had smacked Putin then, He wouldn’t be pulling this crap NOW! To little, to late. Now China has pledged allegiance to Russia in their endeavors to Conquer those less powerful. Ukraine and Taiwan come to mind. Makes me wonder when North Korea will make their move on South Korea/Japan. And what’s Iran been up to lately? I’d say the US is in a world of hurt. I believe China/Russia have joined forces to confront the US on every turn. I also believe this alliance between China/Russia will eventually include North Korea,Iran and Syria. And you thought the AXIS of EVIL was bad, you haven’t seen nothing yet!

    Sorry, Ms. Benson, it’s not our war. If Ukraine wants to purchase arms from us, we should sell them, but we should not spend our blood and money on a war where we have no national interest.

    The Origin of the Infamous NSBA ‘Domestic Terrorism’ Letter Is Revealed—and It Implicates the Biden AdministrationEducation Secretary Miguel Cardona solicited the much-criticized letter from the National School Boards Association that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists, according to an email exchange reviewed by Fox News.The email exchange indicates Cardona was more involved with the letter’s creation than previously known.President Biden’s Department of Justice relied on the NSBA letter, which suggested using the Patriot Act against parents, in creating its own memo directing the FBI to mobilize in support of local education officials.On the Oct. 5 email, NSBA Secretary-Treasurer Kristi Swett recounted that NSBA interim CEO Chip Slaven “told the officers he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cardona.”

    You don’t take orders from the CCP, give the Taliban your weapons, force your top fighters to step down, stop the food supply chain, disassemble your border wall and encourage an invasion of your own country and it not be a treasonous act of war against your own people. – Mike Bruce

    The U.S. is a lot more powerful militarily and economically than Lisa gives credit for in her diminutive Uncle Sam. Hell, California has a stronger economy than Russia. Funny how the right wing cartoonists were silent when Russia annexed the Crimea, shot down an airliner, and involved themselves in insurgent action against Ukraine.

    Trump spent four years telling Putin that anything he want to do was okay. Putin got in the habit.

    I’m surprised some of the comments above weren’t copied and pasted from Russia’s OAN, who refers to the “Great Vlad”. Might’s well be Russia Today or Sputnik.

    I think there’s a real chance that Putin’s using the troop build up on the Ukraine border as a gambit in a larger game. Also, alas, a real chance that he really means it. If the former, then Biden should be able to get something out of the dicker. If the latter, then I hope we’re smart enough to offer “assistance” that does NOT include military intervention on our part.

    What’s the alternative, Lisa? You people never seem to get around to that part. You just carp at what you don’t like and never offer up solutions.

    Putin’s long game is the restoration of as much as possible the former USSR. Ukraine is primary on the list as it has the major shipyards and ports capable of constructing and servicing huge ships such as aircraft carriers. Russia lost that capability when the USSR landed on the trash heap of history and its satellite nations went their own separate ways. If Putin does invade and annex Ukraine, I predict here and now that the construction of a new Russian super carrier will begin within a few years. Rosie said it.

    I’m sure Russia is scared to death to challenge Joe Biden. Ha. That’s the funniest comment of the year. So glad I wrote it. Did you notice he introduced “President Harris” in Georgia this week again? That’s the 3rd time. What a fool. Put him in the old folk’s home where he belongs!!! #FJB
