For Crimean Tatars, a Muslim minority group that returned to their ancestral home in Crimea after 1989, the Russian annexation in March 2014 was a hard blow. Three years later, the European Union is pushing back against the latest U.S. sanctions on Russia, passed by Congress in July. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel even floated […]
Today is the very last day of the failed Obama Presidency. It seems like an appropriate time to take a look back at the epic fail that has been the Obama Hussein Obama’s presidency. Such a reverie must start with Obama’s false claims that he would not run for president in 2008. When Tim Russert, then the moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” first asked Obama | Read More »

The post Bipartisanship Reigns. Hillary Clinton Fixer And Bag Man, John Podesta, Took Paul Manafort’s Russian Cash appeared first on RedState.
When Trump first brought on Paul Manafort to work on his campaign, many people predicted that this would come back to bite him in the rear, once the press got around to digging into Manafort’s work in Ukraine. UNEXPECTEDLY, now that the convention is over and Trump is definitely the nominee, the press has found some pretty astounding nuggets. Among them comes this jaw-dropping revelation | Read More »
When I saw this tweet this morning, it made me literally laugh out loud. So with all of the Obama tough talk on Russia and the Ukraine, they have already taken Crimea and continue to push. That’s what I said! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 1, 2016 What a clown. Let’s review the bidding. Here is Trump yesterday, stating in unequivocal, clownish terms, | Read More »
The post Trump: I Never Said Russia Didn’t or Wouldn’t Invade Ukraine (Yes He Did) appeared first on RedState.
This shows once again that Trump is not steeped in foreign policy. Saying Putin is sort of in Ukraine is splitting some not so fine hairs. Putin’s Russia invaded and annexed Crimea which is still internationally recognized as part of Ukraine.
Crimea, annexed by Russia last year — although to date the annexation is recognized by only handful of countries — is back in the news. On Nov. 22, 2015, Crimea’s electricity towers were blown up, leaving the region dark. Mainland Ukraine had been supplying most of Crimea’s electricity since Russia’s annexation of the peninsula in March 2014, but has not […]
We all love to look at the Clinton Foundation’s donors. Even Rand Paul says that foreign donations are thinly-veiled bribes to the Clintons. So why don’t we look at the donations going to Ron Paul, which he is hiding from public scrutiny? Given that the elder Paul has been defending Russia, don’t we have to question just why this is, and just how much money is | Read More »

On Aug. 9, 2015, a senior Russian general declared that if the Ukrainian military crosses Russia’s red line and attempts to recapture the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, Russia would respond with overwhelming force. This statement reaffirms the Kremlin’s official line that Russia needs to hold onto territory it has virtually annexed in Donbas to […]
The ongoing war in Ukraine recently passed the first anniversary of the highly dubious referendum that split Crimea off from Ukraine and eventually saw it attached to Russia. Over the course of the conflict that followed, over 6,000 people have died, large swathes of eastern Ukraine have been destroyed, and Russian support for separatists rendered insecure by […]
