The Uniparty’s Ukraine obsession

Andrea Widburg has it all figured out. Which only means that, from this day forward, she’d better constantly keep a close check on her six.

The Ukraine War had its first anniversary yesterday. From the get-go, the same leftists who were fanatically anti-war when it came to Iraq and Afghanistan, have been waving the flag for the Ukraine War.

The difference in attitude is understandable if you’re a leftist. Supporting the Iraq and Afghanistan wars required waving the American flag because, even if misguided, they were being fought to benefit America. That’s untenable for the Democrat party. The Ukraine War, however, has at best a dubious benefit for America (more on that in a minute), which means that Democrats get to wave the yellow and blue, instead of the red, white, and blue.

The Democrats’ ideological support for the war is obvious, especially if you throw in the fact that, while completely tolerant of the communist Soviet Union, the Russia hoax has trained them to view Putin’s Russia (a geographically and demographically smaller country than the USSR) as evil incarnate. Forty years after Reagan’s famous anti-communist speech, leftists have finally decided that there’s an “Evil Empire” out there.

But why are the Republicans also on board?

My theory is that, for everyone in D.C., Republicans included, it’s easier and more fun to sing hosannas to Ukraine and write open-ended checks than it is to govern their own struggling country. And cynically, I suspect (admittedly, without proof) that some of them are profiting from those efforts.

The American people, however, are much less happy with what’s taking place in Ukraine. Many have figured out that (a) Ukraine is a deeply corrupt country; (b) Russia is a deeply corrupt country; (c) the NATO countries we’re supposed to be protecting aren’t pulling their weight; (d) China and Russia are now making common cause which is disastrous for America; (e) the war is a bottomless money pit for our money; and (f) the war is inching us towards a nuclear conflict. No wonder, then, that Americans are increasingly unhappy with D.C.’s Ukraine obsessions.

Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky knows what’s happening, so he used a press conference yesterday to thank his American supporters and scold the rest of us. Regarding those thanks, Zelensky knows exactly who in America is propping him up:

I would like to thank the American people. I would like to thank all of the American people who are supporting Ukraine. The Congress, the president, the TV channels, the journalists, and everyone that has been supporting us. (Emphasis mine.)

As for the rest of us, those who fail to appreciate Ukraine’s central importance, Zelensky threatened us:

And that percentage of Americans as you’ve mentioned is increasing, I can tell them only one thing: If they do not change their opinion, if they do not understand us, if they do not support Ukraine, they will lose NATO, they will lose the clout of the United States, they will lose the leadership position that they enjoy in the world, that they enjoy in the world. That they enjoy for a very fair reason.

The arrogance of it all! We don’t need Ukraine to “lose the clout of the United States” and “lose the leadership position that [we’ve] enjoy in the world.” Thanks to Biden’s control over the White House, we’re achieving those unhappy goals just fine without Ukraine. Indeed, it’s likely that the Ukraine war, by empowering China and impoverishing America, is merely more icing on that dismal cake.

Which, one begins to suspect, could well have been the point of this whole farcical exercise all along.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums


"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
