Russian problems? How does anyone know what is happening on the ground… all we see is a propaganda war (including the linked article).

Meanwhile we have the Schwabites’ front man Biden getting ready to lecture us on globull warmening, the evils of voter ID, and the need for national ID to facilitate social credit systems.

My 4:30 by Lord Monckton on how the Russians communists infiltrated the environmental movement and deplatformed, and dsicredited their critics.


I can’t believe it’s legal for a sitting congressman like MTG to take a $15k speaking fee for an event.

Like how it’s illegal in many states for a criminal to profit from their crime.


There’s a lot of tape on Hunter, henry, but you might want to cover your eyes.

BODY CAM FOOTAGE: Dominion Executive Eric Coomer Cuffed and Arrested in Colorado – Video Appears to Show He Drove Truck into Bar, Fled the Scene and Lied to Police

Eric Coomer is the former Director of Security and Product Strategy for Dominion Voting Systems. After the 2020 election debacle, where votes in at least five states had very suspicious results while running Dominion computer systems, center-right journalists made common-sense observations that the results appeared rigged. One journalist, who had infiltrated a conference call filled with Antifa-sympathizing callers, remembered that on the call “Eric from Dominion” was going to ensure that Trump did not win re-election.

Rick Ballard

The NRO writer does a decent job but he neglects to mention that some of the reluctance to advance may be due to the Ukrainians being "neighbors". How ruthless would American forces be with Canada as a foe?

They will overcome the reluctance in short order but the first few days have little to do with the outcome. Ukraine is about 90% the size of Texas as well. It's going to be awhile before this is over.

I still say he manipulated Megyn Kelly into going after Trump and tanking her career. He bragged for several days that he and Kelly were rehearsing the questions, and after the whole thing blew up, he was quiet as a mouse. I quit watching him then.

And he seems to have put on more weight, I agree.

Feeding the Bear: A Closer Look at Russian Army Logistics and the Fait Accompli

This is interesting.


Baier been hittin' it a bit hard, IMO.


Here's the error in thinking about Russian logistics as the weak point.

No one knows what the hard points of the opening missile salvo were and what is left.

Reporters incapable of asking not only quality First questions, but unable to listen, or even hear, to ask the natural, follow on, Second question, provides NO information as to what is left.

Weak gruel at best.

I'll wait for something meatier.

Fuel and logistics problems frustrate Russian advance - analysis

I'm puzzling over some aspects of that 40-mile long Russian supply convoy headed for Kyiv.

jim nj


Ukrainian Resistance, Logistics Nightmares Plague Russian Invaders

"There is a large column of Russian troops and vehicles headed toward the city [Kyiv] that has not made appreciable movement over the past day. Part of this is the Ukrainian resistance, part is the logistics meltdown, the official said. The halt also could be "as a result of their own self-determined sort of pause in operations [and] that they are possibly regrouping, rethinking, reevaluating."

I don't know if logistics is THEE issue, but a 40-mile long convoy that isn't going anywhere fast puzzles me.

Is it a convoy or a traffic jam?

I'm wondering if the failure to capture the airports outside of Kyiv and the battle for Kharkiv slowed two out of three legs of a pincer movement on Kyiv.

So they have to send in a second wave toward Kyiv from Belarus at the same time they are re-supplying the first wave already outside Kyiv using the same, apparently, single road in. And they're all mixed-in in the wrong order, or something.

Or, since that main thrust at Kyiv is coming out of Belarus, is there something different, maybe worse, about Belarus logistics.

Ex-U.S. Vice President Biden Asks Poroshenko To Accelerate Nationalization Of PrivatBank – Derkach Tapes

May 20, 2020


Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

From my developer:

I called both Nataliya and Vlad - both are ok.

Although in Kyiv it's a very nervous state due to often air-strike alarms. Nataliya with her family lives in the part of Kyiv which is closest to the main invasion direction - but on the other hand, this invasion is stopped now. And the reason is - the streets on the nearest towns are jammed with destroyed Russian war vehicles. There is a high risk of the air strikes, but anyway, she feels much safer on the own home. And it makes sense for now - most of the victims we have now are people killed 'on the way'.

Vlad's home is far away from everything. So they can only hear some far explosions.


Wow. Imagine living there. Prayers for them.

--Here's the error in thinking about Russian logistics as the weak point.

Logistics are logistics regardless of what was hit. Russia has always been methodical more than lightning fast. And while they have always been limited in their logistical abilities they usually seem to have a pretty good grasp of them and are seldom unwise enough to exceed them.


there is the cost in money, and lives of this imperial land grab, estimated at 30 billion a day (ballpark figure) it's not like chechnya, which was a wahhabi sanctuary, which the zachistas insured,


Germany signalled a U-turn in key energy policies on Sunday, floating the possibility of extending the life-spans of coal and even nuclear plants to cut dependency on Russian gas, part of a broad political rethink following Moscow's invasion of Ukraine.
In a landmark speech on Sunday, Chancellor Olaf Scholz spelled out a more radical path to ensure Germany will be able to meet rising energy supply and diversify away from Russian gas, which accounts for half of Germany's energy needs.
"We must change course to overcome our dependence on imports from individual energy suppliers," he said.
Germany is also weighing whether to extend the life-span of its remaining nuclear power plants as a way to secure the country's energy supply, the country's economy minister Robert Habeck, a member of the Greens, said.


Funny how US President Joe Biden didn’t mention any these ideas in his State Of The Union speech last night.

matt - deplore me if you must

The images of Pelosi and Harris behind Biden were very disturbing. Pelosi was out and out creepy, while Harris looked like she was about to hurl.

Harris' pre-school explanation of the war in Ukraine takes the cake for just plain stupid.

Back in the day, in my travels in Eastern Europe I would pass by various East Bloc units. I was especially interested in the unit markings and numbers and types of vehicles and where they might be going.

A big part on intelligence is knowing who and what you are facing. A simple unit crest on a BMP or tank identifies the unit and usually we then knew what we could expect.

It seems that Putin has not committed his elite units, but what is he caliber of the ones who are fighting? Same with the aircraft shot down. What units and what level of capabilities?

That 40 Km convoy seems to have run into some serious defense of crossroads and key intersections. Why haven't they used their scouts and basic recon moving forward?

The Russians were very good at launching overwhelming attacks against the Germans in WW II but it was always about the correlation of forces. It seems that now they are blundering forward.

We are told about Spetznasz and their paratroopers, but even now it seems they are either not using their elite units or are being outfought.

The problem is that we just don't have much hard information.


Military units have incredible turnover.
The elite units of a few years ago are gone.
Russia is trying to re-become an empire on the cheap.

Rick Ballard

Russia's ban on fertilizer exports which began in early February will probably be extended for a while. Germany needs to figure out how to make wind mills and solar panels produce ammonium nitrate.

With China declining to participate in the awesome display of the power of sanctions on a relatively self sufficient economy, the vast impact of the sanctions may require some time to become apparent.

matt - deplore me if you must

Interesting to see the countries supporting Russia so far; Cuba, Myanmar, Venezuela, Syria.

China, India, Brazil and many others are neutral despite all of their own nationalistic bombast about self determination.

So we have the navel gazers supporting Ukraine, a few whacked out states supporting Russia, and the majority of the world's population with no dog in the fight.

Fukuyama f'd up. It's a whole new world we're living in.

Rick Ballard

China sees a market opportunity.
India needs Russian wheat.
Brazil really needs Russian fertilizer.

Altreality is hard to play on an empty stomach.

At least Americans are able to easily calculate sanction costs every time they buy gas.

India is a big user of Russian military hardware to boot. They are dependent on them for equipment, especially air and naval. I doubt they wanna break that link when they are looking over their shoulders at the ChiComs.

Jim Eagle

He's such a demented fool and has been since he was 16.


There is a real dearth of information on what is currently going on.

We hear about the 'Ghost of Kiev', the valiant defenders of Snake Island and a stalled out '40 mile convoy' due to Russkie incompetence.

Snake Island? Really?

Sound like a Scooby Doo espisode to me.

Despite all the gas lighting, here is where I think we are.

In the north, the Russians have encountered heavy resistance at Kiev. They have edged up to the city on the east. To the west of the city the Russians continue to move towards Zhytomyr which could produce an envelopment of the city.

In the south, reports of Kherson being taken and Mariupol under attack indicate the Russians are making good progress. It's hard to tell at this point if they are looking to isolate Odessa or if they will plunge north to close a pocket and cut off Ukranian forces in the Donbass.

In the Donbass, where the Uks have concentrated forces thru the years, heavy fighting has been reported. The Ukranians are heavily dug in in this area and it is unlikely we will see anything dramatic happens here unless the Uks have to withdraw. The Russians have advanced towards Kharkiv just to the north and are inching closer to it.

Anyone who thinks the Russians would blitzkrieg thru the Uks in 48 hours and are facing defeat now for failing to do so is silly.

The stall in front of Kiev at this point does appear a failure of Russian plans though. A week into the operation I would wager the Russians thought they would have enveloped the city.

I think the 'stalled convoy' is the Russians regrouping after the heavy resistance they have encountered and they will soon resume their advance. I believe by Sunday they will have resumed their advance and encircled the city. Doctrine would point against a wasteful, direct assualt on the city though heavy and debelitating artillery and air attacks will proceed.

In the south, I do think the Russians seem to be making good progress. Doctrine would dictate they will drive north and close the pocket behind the Donbass forces. Investing Odessa would be a costly affair but a valuable bargaining chip in any peace negotations.

If the above is true, the Uks will have to decide what to do in Donbass. Staying place ensures that any Russ attack will take terrible losses. Staying also means the Russians could complete a pincer movement to cut them off to the west. Retreating would potentially subject them to whithering air assualt.

The above is based upon various, including pro Russian info, and is the best guess of an Arm Chair General.
