In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

So, What's Really Going On?

The media is bouncing around different perspectives/narratives about the current buildup of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine. Regardless of the opinions, it seems the fact Biden once threatened to withhold funds from Ukraine to prevent  investigation into his son's business ties is forgotten. Why is this being ignored? Where are the investigative reporters that should be looking into the reasons Russia is flexing its muscles? Is Russia protecting itself from corrupt influences on their economy? Are foreign agents using Ukraine to cause problems with Russia? Are the current President's hands tied because of his past criminal actions?

All governments have some level of corruption, and it appears the current administration has corrupt ties to the Ukraine. Even if the ties aren't current, the leverage of exposing past ties for favor can influence policy decisions. That, and drag us into a conflict we have no business becoming involved with. 

Time will tell how this all works out, but if we had a real media, all of this would have been exposed years ago, when Biden was running for office. His past actions, and those of his son, would have made excluding him from seeking office an easy task. Instead, the fawning media is now complicit in placing the United States in a dangerous position, and the current President appears to have sacrificed national security for wealth.

  1. not just biden, its the entire cabal. kerry, pelosi, clinton, biden AND their kids/in laws. hillary and brenan pulled a coup in ukraine to protect chelsie's husband's crooked steel deal. they then broke the law to dump inferior ukraine steel on the u.s.market, which bankrupted several u.s. steelmakers. there will be buildings falling down 20 years from now. they are all up to their necks in the robbing of ukraine. putin wants the eastern provinces back, they were part of russia for centuries. nato green energy has left them dependent on rooskie gas/oil. they want missiles in ukraine so they can strongarm putin into lower prices. that puts moscow in range of a first strike beheading. five minutes to impact, seven minutes for counterfire, means russia won't even be able to fire back. no way he lets that happen. and we have amateur lqbtq diplomatic corp that can't spell it and a senile grifter set on protecting the skim from being outed. we're toast, literally.

    1. After the shenanigans with the Bidens, I doubt Putin has any faith in the honesty of Ukrainian officials. From what I see, they present a huge threat to the security of Russia, and Putin will act ruthlessly if necessary.

  2. Yep. Putin is putting on a show. Complicating things is that the American crime families are not the only ones in the game. Somebody is being leaned on, or the game is bigger and involves other players... maybe both...

    1. If I had to guess, the Ukraine thinks they bought some insurance by bribing the Bidens. The big money that dabbles in world conflicts helped launder the money, will make billions in trading currencies, could care less how many are killed, and too many U.S. politicians are invested in the illegal game, or have to keep quite. From my point of observation, most politicians are dirty, and the most successful of them have the dirt on the rest.

  3. And (again) what do we care at all about Ukraine? This is no more our business than it would be the Russian's business if we took over Tijuana.

    Madness.

    1. Putin is in the driver's seat. His oil is allowing him great wealth, Biden is throttling U.S. oil production, and in the grand scheme of things, he has much to lose, and much to gain.

      The U.S. is now run by criminals that any healthy society would punish severely. Dabbling in foreign nations has caused great damages in the past, and it IS madness to continue this policy.
