Putin’s Failure – Things went badly wrong. The Russian battalion-sized airmobile force met stiff air defense and was immediately counterattacked by the Ukrainian mobile reserve. Unable to land follow-on forces, the paratroopers could not withstand heavy weapons and were scattered or wiped out. Equally serious for the Russians was the failure of their northern pincer to advance on schedule.
Desperate to “bag” the Ukrainian government, the Russians attempted a large-scale airborne assault for Vasylkiv Airfield to the south of Kyiv to establish a blocking position to catch withdrawing units. But this failed, with two C-17 counterpart IL-76s loaded with paratroops destroyed, and with them, two infantry companies of the Kremlin’s finest. Crucially the Russian mechanized elements trickling into Kyiv proved too weak to break through the city defense.

As Seen on TV – Untethered For years Black Lady Judge has been a fixture in film and television, a negro of extra numinousity* and implied wisdom, as part of the more than half-century long and continuing propaganda campaign conveying black people as more capable and humane than they are in real life–the cultural tyranny long preceding the present social and political tyranny it has been essential in effecting, and which is now wildly, Wakanda-ly, out of control.
Those of us of a certain age have long known Black Lady Judge, near relation to Black Police Chief (gruff but fair) and Black High School Principal (familiar enough to be parodied, when such things were still allowed): here she is pursing her lips at an insolent attorney; there she is raising her eyebrows and lowering her glasses to warn a line of questioning is straying, but she’ll “allow it” for the moment. See her? Serenely dignified, she always has the best posture.

Nolte: The State of Joe Biden’s Union Is Domestic and Worldwide Chaos After Trump had nearly solved this problem, our Southern border is now wide open. As a result, millions of unvaccinated illegal aliens are pouring into our country. We have no idea who these people are, but we do know they bring crime, lower wages, and increased housing costs.
To top things off, Biden just chose one of the most divisive Supreme Court nominees in history when he was offered a unifying one.
Under Biden, it’s all chaos, chaos everywhere, at home and abroad, and there is no end in sight. And all of this chaos is a direct result of Biden’s policies, his incompetence, his lack of empathy, his lack of decency, his corruption, his ego, his stupidity, and the fact that he becomes more mentally diminished by the day.

A large rocket landed in the middle of the street near the National Guard academy in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city. It was unclear if anyone was injured by the rocket, which failed to detonate.

Wokeism is a radical identitarian doctrine, augmented with a series of very intrusive, divisive and disturbing mechanisms that try to dictate how people should act and think. Wokeism is not about the objective social conditions, but about the diffusion of wokeism itself, which, in the last instance, promotes social unrest, societal fragmentation, and anomie in the host population. The resulting weakening of social structures and the loss of focus on the political debate – impossible to be followed by individuals now confused about their own race and gender – creates a favorable environment for the infiltration of imperial structures and agendas.

The Purpose of War – by Michael DC Bowen People will say that Putin is crazy, but they will not understand his ideological purpose. People will say that violence never solves anything, but they will be blind to the solutions desired by those ordering tanks engagements and warplane sorties. As the affluent friends of Doc will find solace in Germany and Italy today, will they be protected by NATO tomorrow? Some of that will depend on Germany’s dependence on Russian and likely Ukrainian natural resources and the pipelines that deliver them to a Western Europe that has been seduced away from Atoms for Peace. We Americans have no hand in the energy security of Western Europe because nobody the Washington Post ever bothered to poll put such questions to the public. Remember when the City of Berkeley outlawed the use of natural gas? The price of oil just surpassed $100/bbl. Tanks don’t run on wind power. Have no doubt that Putin will bomb any solar panels he may find in Ukraine as targets of opportunity. Have no doubt that the sanctions crowd will call for sanctions. Have no doubt that the US will sweat over pushing the big red button that allows sanctuary for the refugees to come.
“We’ve lived a world of illusion. We’ve thought that war is so last century, that we had more important things to do like worry about the planet, which of course has left us completely open as we’ve destroyed our nuclear power, our oil, our gas”

Ukraine, Russia and the Atlanticists | RealClearDefense The Atlanticists compounded their error of NATO expansion with their fervent opposition to better relations between Russia and the United States. Some of them promoted the fraudulent Trump-Russia collusion story, even as the Trump administration attempted to improve U.S.-Russia relations (seeking to emulate Nixon’s triangular diplomacy of the early 1970s). Meanwhile, Russia gradually moved into China’s strategic orbit, presenting the United States and its NATO allies with the potential for a hostile great power Eurasian bloc. And now the Atlanticists want to get the United States more heavily involved in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, recommending that we expend resources there that could be better used in the Indo-Pacific. Let’s hope this is their final act–we should listen to them no more.
“You got 1 percent of the population in America who owns 41 percent of the wealth… but within the black community, the top 1 percent of black folk have over 70 percent of the wealth. So that means you got a lot of precious Jamals and Letitias who are told to live vicariously through the lives of black celebrities so that it’s all about ‘representation’ rather than substantive transformation… ‘you gotta black president, all y’all must be free.’” – Cornel West interviewed by Joe Rogan, July 24, 2019
Ukraine’s Deadly Gamble — Ukraine gave up its nuclear arsenal in 1994 in exchange for U.S. security guarantees in the event its neighbors, Russia in particular, turned hostile. What kind of strategy dictates that a state hand over its security vis-a-vis local actors to a country half the world away? No strategy at all. Ukraine was not able to transcend its natural geography as a buffer state—and worse, a buffer state that failed to take its own existence seriously, which meant that it would continue to make disastrously bad bets. In 2013, the European Union offered Kyiv a trade deal, which many misunderstood as a likely prelude to EU membership. Young Ukrainians very much want to join the EU, because they want access to Europe so they can flee Ukraine, which remains one of the poorest countries on the continent.
