So, under Putin's orders, Russia invaded Ukraine.
Don't look now, but Ukraine is winning.
What's going on here?
Russian fighting men are disobeying orders, and living to tell about it? On a massive scale? To be sure, there are Russian invaders who are capable of the kind of atrocity expected of Russian soldiers. But there are also Russian soldiers who do not want to fight this war, and they are letting that fact be known.
There are stories emerging of Russians punching holes in gas tanks of vehicles so that they would run out of gas before reaching their assigned target stations. And even a few stories of surrenders. But what's going on in the Odessa naval attack is perhaps the most revealing, because when any navel warship doesn't do what it is ordered to do, you are talking about a high ranking ship's captain disobeying orders, or, standing down in fear of his own crew. Or both.
I remember hearing a story from post WWII occupied Europe, in which American soldiers complained to a Russian officer about how one of his soldiers had done some minor crime, like stealing a jeep or something. And the Russian officer called that soldier up in front of the Americans, and shot him in the head. The Americans couldn't believe their eyes.
Marxists don't give a damn about their own fighting men, nor do they have any respect for human life. That was a lesson that came out of WWII. Their armies march on fear of their leaders. Terror runs deep in Marxist ranks.
But this is a new day. Russia today may or may not be Marxist, but it is certainly not free. Russia is tyrannically ruled, however loose or tight that tyranny may be. In Russia, there are no citizen rights not granted by the tyrant, and only so long as he grants them. That's the difference between Rule Of Law and Rule Of Man. Rule of men always deteriorates into rule of one man.
The average Russian soldier is in this war with Ukraine because he has to be. The average Ukrainian soldier is in this war because he wants to be. That is a huge difference. Ukraine, from the day it split off from the old USSR, wants to be free. Ukrainians want liberty.
And they want it so bad they will die for it.
I don't know the half of what's going on over there, but even from my poor vantage point it can be seen that Russian command and control is not so much in command, and not so much in control.
All the leaders of our own Marxocrat Party, playacting at fearing Russia when in fact they are closely allied with Russia, clutch their pearls and swoon every time any Russian tyrant mentions a nuclear response to whatever is going on, and stop right in their tracks, saying, heavens to Betsy, we can't risk war with Russia, so let's not cross that Russian-laid red line, whatever we do!
And the Russian red line just keeps moving.
Why? Because the Marxocrat Party is in league with Russia. And China.
If Russia's on-again off-again nuclear threat is really real, just what makes anyone think they won't use nuclear weapons against us or anyone, despite no one ever crossing any of their many red lines?
How far is the free world supposed to back up? How small must we all shrink, out of fear of something Russia just might do anyway?
Every time the Marxocrat Party runs the American government they cut American defense and cut our nuclear arsenal. We can only wonder if we have one left, or what size it might actually be right now.
Not that many years ago the Pentagon ordered drill sergeants to stop using profanities and crude language around the trainees, and to show respect, and to add praise to their training, to build up self-esteem among the recruits as they were being trained.
I knew then that was an evil stratagem aimed at wrecking our military.
New soldiers need to experience stress, physical, mental and spiritual. Not self-esteem. Stress. Soldiers have to perform under extreme stress, and stay calm and do their job, despite whatever is going on around them.
Today, we have a criminal and enemy Pentagon incorporating Wokies, homos, trannies and girls into combat roles in combat units, and a mission change that puts diversity, glass-ceilings, critical race theory, wild inter-sex billeting, bathrooms and bivouacking, racial, sexual and imaginary sex quotas, unbounded indiscriminate inclusiveness, syncretism and gathering with evil, the climate, the environment, carbon-footprints, and Covid liberty restrictions, masks and vaxes, etc., all above the original and still valid sole mission of the military, which is and always was to kill people and break things.
If a "she-he, he-she, it" trainee gets its poor little feelings hurt by the strong language of a drill sergeant it should take off the uniform it is disgracing.
But the ultimate failure of the evil Marxocrat degeneration and destruction of our military capability is predicted by one simple fact: they are all volunteers. They are all there because they want to be there. And despite all the wokies, the homos, the trannies and the girls, at the core of all American corps are the real American patriots, who are there in the first place to defend liberty, and they will defend it to the death.
Kind of like the Ukrainians.
What about China? How many of their soldiers and sailors are there out of any sense of patriotism to a nation that denies liberty to its citizens? They have lots of shiny new warships, but what kind of men operate them?
Despite the best efforts of the evil monopolists controlling all news and all internet information, thanks to the ubiquitous cell-phone, Liberty Information today is finding its way into all nations, and even into the deepest enclaves of tightly controlled societies. People everywhere see and know what's going on in Ukraine, they see what Russian forces are doing and they see what Ukrainian forces are doing, and they are all taking a new look at the "Colossus" that was once Russia.
Russia is vulnerable, and maybe China too, because of the morale of their armed forces and their own citizenry who today can now see, hear and smell Liberty, out there beyond their borders.
Today, it may be the people of nations who win or lose wars between tyranny and liberty; not their governments.
We, and what's left of our allies, should not cringe in fear of anyone else's nuclear button. They should be in fear of ours. We should be equally or even more willing to fire a nuclear shot at them than they are willing to fire at us.
If they are that recklessly willing to ever use nuclear weaponry, then nuclear war is inevitable.
And if it is inevitable, we should prepare to win it, if such a war is winnable. For it is indeed better to be dead than to be Red.
Xi Jinping is wise beyond the level of all contemporary tyrants today. He knows how to wage total war, and he is waging it right now all over the world, and he is winning at the moment. Like Sherman and Grant in our own Civil War, Jinping knows that the real way to win any war is to fight it economically. Use force when you have to, but defeat the enemy with economics, put him in economic desperation, and he may just defeat himself the rest of the way for you. And if not, he is certainly weakest at that point, and ripe for military defeat.
But Trump, the businessman, the deal maker, is better at this kind of war than Jinping. President Trump walked in to Jinping's own cassino, sat down at Xi Jinping's own table and just beat him half to death, while playing Jinping's own game.
And - this is important - Trump's people love him, while Jinping's people do not love him. They may fear him, and respect him, but they don't love him. What's to love about tyranny?
And so, the Covid-19 Plandemic hit the world scene, it was weaponized by the anti-American pro-China Marxocrat Party, and in pure political desperation they cheated for all they were worth and stole the 2020 election from Trump.
And put China back on top of its game again.
We have talked about how to handle China in this new day.
With a demented criminal weakling running the American Presidency, and a Marxocrat Party controlled House, Senate, Defense Department, CIA, FBI, Justice Department and more, this presents tyranny's big opportunity to take America down. Whether Marxist, Islamic, Immoral or New World Order, the inside and outside forces of evil are aligned and united to take down the USA, and this is their critical strategic moment to do it.
The big lesson that came out of WWI was that anyone - anyone - was capable of military atrocity and the murder of innocents. In the beginning of the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, after the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and the first declaration of war against Serbia, the world witnessed the mass-murder of Christians by other Christians.
Civilians were herded out of their homes to be shot or hanged in the streets, and all of their possessions were thrown into piles and burned, including even crucifixes and sacred icons. Civilian women - mothers and grandmothers - were hung all along the streets, for the crime of being Serbians.
And the perpetrators of these atrocities were not barbarians, and they were not Communists, Nazis, Fascists or Socialists of any kind.
They were Austrians. Civilized, Christian, Austrians, and Hungarians, and Germans. Enraged at the assassination of the Archduke by a Serbian anarchist, who was far less Serbian than he was anarchist.
And they didn't think they were doing anything wrong. It was war, after all.
And then in WWII, the lesson of WWI was suppressed when Nazi Germany began targeting civilian London, and the free world retaliated with carpet bombing of whole cities full of civilians.
Revenge may be the world's most evil and most dangerous demon.
But when the war was settled and victory was achieved, the big lesson that came out of it was that national sovereignty was to be respected by all sovereign nations, that no sovereign nation was to be invaded by any other sovereign nation, lest the world of sovereign nations unite against the invading nation and destroy it. What the Nazis, the Fascists and the Communists all did in WWII was to invade, conquer and keep formerly sovereign nations as slave nations under their tyrannical control.
(See It's all about sovereignty.)Since then, using PSYOP23 trickery and mass-disinformation programs, the demons of Islam, Communism, Immorality and Globalism have "demonized" the very principle of national sovereignty itself.
When you look at the Euorpean Union today, you are looking at the result of an evil induced mass delusional psychosis, which induced sovereign nations to surrender their sovereignty to a higher authority not of any of their making. A willing surrender of national sovereignty.
It was an economic and psychological victory of epic proportions for the Islamo-Commie-Homo movement and the New World Order, without a shot being fired. All the European nations that joined the EU just gave up their own sovereignty and eliminated their own borders, willingly, on their own recognizance.
By their own authority, they surrendered their own authority.
So long as they remain in the EU, they are lost, as sovereign nations.
And the principle of national sovereignty, the most important lesson that came out of WWII, has been and is being weakened throughout the whole world of sovereign nations.
South Korea was not a NATO member when Communist North Korea invaded, but a whole lot of Sovereign nations joined forces to put a stop to that invasion.
By the time South Vietnam (also not a NATO member) was invaded by Communist North Vietnam, the principle was already weakened to the point that only a pitifully few still sovereign nations were willing to come to the rescue and put a stop to that invasion.
Today, Ukraine is invaded, and no sovereign nation - not one - sees that as any of their own concern. No one, including America, thinks it is worthwhile to send any of their own forces to protect the principle of national sovereignty because they have all forgotten or abandoned the whole principle of national sovereignty itself.
Sovereignty is no longer worth defending. The lesson of WWII is lost.
If you don't believe me, just look at what the criminal Marxocrat Party is doing to America's southern border. They hate and are out to destroy America's own national sovereignty. And they have a significant minority of an absolutely committed and dedicated voter-base of citizens who now agree with that animus toward national sovereignty.
Just look at how many rich and famous Americans today openly declare and publicly demonstrate their own absolute hatred of America.
Today, American academia, formal education, child care, medicine, pharmacy, welfare, national defense, national security and almost all information is under the tyrannical control of an anti-American criminal ruling regime, appearing to be led by President Biden.
America is not going to get back in the game until and unless Trump is back in the saddle again. And the whole free world, not just America, depends on the restoration of the Trump Presidency.
I am ready to say to hell with the now Marxist-Globalist UN, and to hell with the now Marxist-Globalist EU. I am almost ready to say to hell with the ever increasingly Marxist-Globalist NATO. Where the UN is already anti-American, the EU and NATO are verging on it. The only thing they want from us is for us to defend them against that which they are already adopting: Socialism.
The reason Russia and China have huge military forces capable of projecting offensive military power far beyond their own borders is that they spend annually a minimum of 50% and sometimes upwards of 90% of their gross annual national revenue on their defense forces, and next to nothing on citizen welfare. Most Western countries today spend next to nothing on their own defense, let alone any offensive capabilities. They can't afford it after funding all of their citizen welfare programs. They are already Socialist, and they don't even know it.
Cultural Marxism has been inducing the mass delusional psychosis of the superiority of Socialism over Capitalism throughout Western Civilization, including here in America, where we now spend way, way more on socially enslaving welfare programs than we do on national defense. Social Security alone, all by itself, dwarfs the American defense budget.
What the free word has been and is being schmoozed out of knowing is the fact that Liberty = Independence = self-reliance, at the citizen level. From there, it migrates upward to the government, in lands blessed with citizen representative governments.
There is nothing wrong and everything right with rugged individualism.
There is everything wrong and nothing right about social dependency.
And if that leads to a wider war between the USA and Russia, so be it.
The lessons of Napoleon and Hitler were that Russia is a hard land to conquer by conventional means, but this is a new day and "conventional" war is hardly used any more.
Napoleon was not defeated strategically, but logistically. He was defeated by the vastness of Russia, the mud, the cold, the impossibly long supply lines, and even the wolves and other carrion-eaters.
The same thing happened to Hitler's forces. The cold, the mud, the stubbornness of a citizenry that refused to be conquered, and, eventually, the gathered gigantic masses of the whole Russian military at Kursk.
Anyone who goes to war with Russia (or with anyone) needs to be prepared to actually conquer Russia (or anyone). If you are only defensive, you cannot win. You can only survive, and shrink.
The Western strategy against Russian incursion thus far has been, roughly,
No one threatens to fight Russia on Russian land. Why not?
Stealth drones armed with smart bombs and other missiles don't need any long supply lines and don't care about mud or freezing cold or vast distances. All they need is a small number of intelligence and targeting operators strategically placed on the ground, all dressed up like Russians and swimming in the sea of the people, to target members of the government, to take the whole ruling government out.
We should, of course, be careful what we wish for. The next ruler may be worse than the last one. Remember that Lenin's successor was Joseph Stalin.
But, the menace that free Europe faces today is Putin. We can only cross bridges as we come to them.
In sovereignty's war with Russia, we should very carefully avoid seeking to conquer and/or occupy and hold Russia herself. Our war would be with the ruling anti-sovereignty regime, not the Russian people. While the Russian citizenry may or may not wish to fight for a Putin, for instance, they will most certainly fight for mother Russia. Almost to a man, they will all rise up against any invader. We should accomplish the mission of taking out the ruler, let the internal chips fall where they may, and stay the hell out of there.
As Trump has amply demonstrated, the tyrannical world should be worrying more about our red-lines than we should be worrying about theirs. We need to quit backing down.
It's time to stand up for ourselves, Liberty, and Sovereignty on earth.
If we truly believe that Jesus is God, and if we truly are a Godly people, then why is He not the first thing on everyone's mind, and the first and last thing in every political speech?
If we put Jesus first, all the Woke-iness disappears, along with all the social, moral and religious syncretism, the legal blessing and growing of sodomy, identity disorders, abortion, falsehoods, etc., etc., etc.
What we need are political leaders who will publicly call on the holy name of Jesus and publicly pray and lead followers to pray Christian prayers rather than "moments of silence", and bless and glorify the Holy Name of Jesus.
Boldly and unapologetically, and if the Marxocrats, RINOs, Libertarians and other lip-service Christians, and non-Christians don't like it, they can go to hell.
It's time for a little divisiveness around here.
Christians should not yield any ground in their faith, any more than fathers should yield any ground in their families, any more than Americans should yield any ground in America.
It's a matter of sovereignty.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Yeah, who's to say that Chinese military isn't also a bunch of hot air like the Russian one? For one thing, analyses of their civilian infrastructure reveals things like cities that no one lives in and highways that no one uses - they get built, yes, but population decline in China also gets it's say, no matter what the party operatives and paid internet trolls/wumaos say about it (say "Thank you!" for Chinese "one-child" policy and that the population control will have about the same bad result for humans in China as it did for the sparrows in China during Mao's time). Beneath the surface shine of those few cities where Chinese oligarchy has permitted capitalism, the entire country is awash in corruption and poverty. They never show their own villages, from which most of their people come. I'm sure that most of these villages don't have Western plumbing, water and gas - just like Russia. And the new and shiny warships - like Russian tanks - just might exist in the generals' reports (while the actual funds went to the generals themselves and their progeny and mistresses) and in the minds of propagandists. China and Russia have the greatest amounts of raw resources in the world - which means completely and utterly nothing so long as the actual management of these resources is inept, corrupt or both. China and Russia have conscript-model armies, too. I dare say that Communist Chinese willingness to throw lives at a problem has been long outlived and made obsolete by the sheer technological and doctrinal advantage of the West.

Good article. Yes, biden and his ilk talk big and pretend they are doing everything they can while actually helping Russia by not doing things that would help. And cowering in fear at the mention of nukes. One sad thing I've noticed is that so many of the "pro-Trump" supposedly conservative people are actually in lock-step with biden! They are saying the same thing and using the same excuses! The worst president ever and they are now basically in league with him.
Almost the same situation has arisen with the the pope and the new up coming Consecration. Many of the more traditionally minded Catholics who have been critical of Pope Francis are now lauding him because they deny that the 1984 Consecration performed by Pope St. John Paul II was efficacious despite the fact that the original mystic Sister Lucia says it was.
To me it is very strange that these situations seem rather similar.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
