Patrick Buchanan has retired at 84 after a long and influential career as a writer, TV commentator and presidential advisor (Nixon, Ford and Reagan). He saw through George H.W. Bush and later opposed the Gulf War. He opposes the blank check Washington has given Zelensky in this war.
Ashli Babbit wasn't the only one murdered by police (brown shirts) on J6. Rosanne Boyland was also murdered by the actions and inaction of police that day. They killed two that day. Let's not forget her
When Covid and the vaccines failed to achieve the goals of the depopulationists, a messy European war started by old codgers with nothing to live for seems convenient. Eisenhower was right about the military industrial complex. It’s interesting that we now know the Democrats are and have been the proponents of it since Vietnam. This is what happens when votes don’t matter,
I read this morning somewhere that 60% of the aid money to Ukraine is siphoned off by the corrupt government. I'm sure 10% is going to the big guy.
Zelensky went Hollywood. He shows up at celebrity events - in the middle of a war!!! No wonder liberals love him.
One of my rules of thumb is if liberals are for something or someone, I am against it, until proven wrong. So far, I am good on this one. The opposite usually holds true. I am not sure where I stand on Putin. He is no Mr. Nice Guy, so Putin may be the exception that proves the rule.
A friend who is from far eastern Poland, on a small border town, said their town has been overrun by Ukranians. Crime is way up. Mayhem is way up. It is not good.
I haven't said it in a while, and never on Substack, so I'll see how it goes:
Fuck Joe Biden.
Thank you, Don. Trenchant comments and good discussion. The MSM loves a "good" war, so they will push it in their coverage. You'll hear about individual victims but not the geopolitical circumstances in that same MSM. God bless you Don.
Like I have said many times, I am sick of this war and it has no heroes. (Again, I am sorry for the citizens who did not ask for this.) Force peace talks and partition part of Ukraine if necessary. I am at the point where I might join Team Putin. Yes, I know that both leaders are thugs and murderers. I am not in the forever war camp and I see its grift and its destructiveness. And yes, W was a terrible president in retrospect.
Mitt Romney would be all in supporting the corrupt oligarchs in Ukraine since his son also profited from their crimes.
Peace is not profitable ! Trump 2024 !!! Ike was right, beware the Military Industrial Complex. Even Young Trump must remember that, it was Eisenhower's last speech before Kennedy's Inauguration, I believe. Presidents were special back then, they spoke, we listened. None of this political gobble d'gook. Let Trump be Trump and Make America Great Again, Again :D
Don. You're silent on the Peace/Armistice of Minsk I and Minsk II (2012 and 2014). Both Germany's Merkel and France's Hollande have publicly stated that they deceived Russia, with the intent that the Peace Agreement was really intended to buy time for Ukraine to re- arm. And re-arm they did. Ukraine built fortifications for 8 years and continued to shell Eastern Ukraine.
And the dirty hands of the U.S. State Department and Agencies are all over the dead bodies of Ukrainians.
The U.S. started the war. And the European Colonies acquiesced.
Tell me what country on this planet has any credibility left to act as an Honest Broker to carve out a lasting Peace in this idiotic, belligerent American Deep State Project of destroying Russia? Which now has brought up the more important question of how are the American People going to prevent Washington DC from completing their project of destroying America.
Why no mention of China helping Russia at this point?
Superb column, Don. You hit the ball out of the ballpark every time.
your best substack so far. the tease for tomorrow though . . .
the demons that have been running this country's major institutions for the past thirtyish years have lost all semblance of restraint.
So. No more Google. GOOD. EXCELLENT. SUPERB. I want those assh*les on an Alabama chain gang road clean-up squad on the hottest day in August (any year will do). WAY to go, Big D!
Excellent move, Don. Your first founding member concurs. Perhaps now, you can find time to write that article about prescription drug pricing being so egregious.
Although negotiations should go on in secret, I am not sure FJB administration is interested in ending the current conflict. A good start would be to slap down the Ukraine govt at least once...a Sister Soljah moment would do. Our NATO allies should become tired of this very soon. DJT is right of course.
