NATO foreign ministers’ conference to mount tensions around Ukraine - senior diplomat

By declaring its plans to hold an extraordinary virtual conference of foreign ministers ahead of the NATO-Russia Council’s meeting, the North Atlantic Alliance is trying to increase tensions around the internal Ukrainian conflict, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told TASS on Tuesday.

"We expect such steps from the alliance. Usually, the NATO-Russia Council was always preceded either by the meetings of the NATO-Ukraine Commission or the meetings of the North Atlantic Council. These are some signals that NATO is sending to us that they are concerned about the alleged concentration of Russian forces," Grushko said.

"All this fits into their line aimed at increasing tensions around the internal Ukrainian crisis, the line of portraying Russia as a party to the conflict. There is nothing surprising here," the senior diplomat said.

A challenging year

I remember when 1984 was in the distant future. We wondered if our destiny was going to be Big Brother’s police state. But 1984 turned out to be the middle of the Reagan years. Liberals didn’t like Reagan’s rhetoric, but his policies worked. Supply-side economics cured stagflation, and we were working to end the cold war. It was difficult not to like a president who could quip in response to an assassination attempt on his life, “I forgot to duck.”

New ideas reinvigorated US economic and foreign policy. Our future had brightened.

Soviet President Gorbachev agreed to the reunification of Germany on the assurance from the George H.W. Bush administration that in exchange NATO would not move one inch to the East.

But the Clinton regime, with Republican Bob Dole egging them on, dishonored the word of the United States government and moved NATO to Russia’s borders, thus restarting the Cold War that Reagan and Gorbachev had ended.

"Mr. Sullivan and his counterparts discussed their readiness to impose severe consequences on Russia if it engages in further aggression against Ukraine."

Killing for the Sake of It: The Grisly Reality of the Failing US Empire

The story is the same every time: some nation, due to a confluence of lucky circumstances, becomes powerful — much more powerful than the rest — and, for a time, is dominant. But the lucky circumstances, which often amount to no more than a few advantageous quirks of geology, be it Welsh coal or West Texas oil, in due course come to an end. In the meantime, the erstwhile superpower becomes corrupted by its own power.

Qassem Soleimani's assassination has backfired on the US and Israel

Two years have passed since Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), was killed by a US drone strike on the tarmac of Baghdad airport.

Soleimani was the brain behind Iran’s shadow war in the Middle East, and for years the counterpart of US Central Command (Centcom) leaders and CIA directors, as he boasted about in a text message he allegedly sent to General David Petraeus, the former US military commander in Iraq.

In the process, Soleimani became a local hero against western hegemony in the region, the main enabler of the resistance for large Shia constituencies spread around Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Yemen and Gaza. But he also crossed the sectarian divide, garnering significant support from the Kurds and other Sunnis. Millions turned out onto the streets of Tehran and his hometown of Kerman to see his coffin, in a collective show of grief not seen since the funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989.

US ‘credibility’ based on defense of Taiwan is folly

In early December, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs Ely Ratner testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that Taiwan is “a critical node within the first island chain (in the Western Pacific), anchoring a network of U.S. allies and partners … that is critical to the region’s security and critical to the defense of vital U.S. interests in the Indo-Pacific.”

The United States must reject making the defense of Taiwan the centerpiece of American grand strategy in the Indo-Pacific. Centering our credibility in the region on deterring and — if necessary — repelling a Chinese invasion of Taiwan would distort the perception of our genuine security interests in East Asia and significantly restrict the freedom of action for policymakers in the event of a crisis. Armed conflict would likely occur, committing the U.S. military to “an acute operational disadvantage,” according to a recent analysis from RAND political scientists.

Biden bizarrely pushes COVID shots in message to student loan borrowers about repayment freeze

President Joe Biden used an end-of-the-year announcement about extending a freeze on student loan debt repayment to urge vaccination. The president had initially decided to end the freeze, first put in place by President Donald Trump in March 2020, on February 1.

But his statement on December 22 about an extension until May 1 included vaccination and COVID booster shots as a way to prepare for the eventual restart of student loan payments.

“As we are taking this action, I’m asking all student loan borrowers to do their part as well,” Biden said, after announcing general plans to have the Department of Education help borrowers prepare to fulfill their obligations to pay back their student loans.

Borrowers should “make sure [to get] vaccinated and boosted when eligible,” along with looking at other repayment and debt amnesty programs, the president said.

Biden has repeatedly used negative language towards people who have chosen not to take the abortion-tainted jabs.

UK warned it would recognize Palestine if Israel annexed West Bank, book reveals

The United Kingdom’s ambassador to the United States warned the Trump administration in June 2020 that if Israel went forward with plans to annex large parts of the West Bank, London would officially recognize the State of Palestine, a new book has revealed.

The message was passed along by Karen Pierce in a meeting she held with then-US president Donald Trump’s Mideast peace envoy Avi Berkowitz and Iran special envoy Brian Hook on June 12, 2020, Israeli journalist Barak Ravid wrote in his book “Trump’s Peace.”

Berkowitz and Hook were dispatched to meet with Pierce by then-senior White House adviser Jared Kushner. While the Trump administration was being inundated by calls from world leaders warning the US against allowing then-prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to go forward with plans to begin annexing parts of the West Bank on July 1, 2020, it was the response from the UK that went further and was most surprising to the Americans, the book claimed.

U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday told Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy the United States and its allies will "respond decisively" if Russia further invades Ukraine, the White House said in a statement.

The call came days after Biden held a second conversation in a month with Russian President Vladimir Putin amid tensions on Russia's border with Ukraine, where Russia has massed some 100,000 troops.

"President Biden made clear that the United States and its allies and partners will respond decisively if Russia further invades Ukraine," White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said in a statement following the call.

"Imperialist Russia?" Four Western Provocations That Led To The Current US-Russia Crisis

A fresh report and analysis at the non-interventionist think tank, Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, traces the roots of today's US-Russia deteriorated relations and showdown over Ukraine back to the Bill Clinton administration in the 1990's.

So much of current "debate" in public and media discourse is woefully lacking in even basic recent historical knowledge and context of the last thirty years since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Even in daily conversations people might get into with friends, family or neighbors - it's common to hear the charge of Russian "imperialism" and "aggression"... as if the Cold War never ended, or worse it's as if some think Putin represents some kind of resurrected Czarist empire.

The statement was signed by several former US ambassadors, in particular ex-ambassadors to Ukraine Stephen Pifer and John Herbst, ex-ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul and Alexander Vershbow, as well as Daniel Fried, former US ambassador to Poland.

“We believe the United States should, in close consultation with its NATO allies and Ukraine, take immediate action to influence the Kremlin’s calculations of costs and benefits before the Russian leadership chooses to further military escalation,” the statement said.

It eclipses what the United States is willing to invest for overhauling its badly neglected civilian infrastructure and for combating the coronavirus pandemic that has killed far more people in the U.S. than in any other nation.

Kremlin officials said President Putin warned Joe Biden that new sanctions would lead to a complete breakdown in relations between the two countries, during a 50-minute phone call to discuss the crisis over Ukraine on Thursday.

Both sides have accused the other of provocations while tens of thousands of Russian troops have been moved close to the Ukrainian border.

COVID 'Blood On His Hands': Biden 'Kills' More Americans Than Trump

"We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science - not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency," Biden said in February 2020.

President Biden may not recall what he said during a 2020 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should:

“Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States of America.”

At the time the U.S. had recorded 220,000 Covid deaths.

“If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive,” Mr. Biden said last fall.

So, what happened when Joe-Biden-The-Science-Guy stepped in? Things went just a little bit turbo...

CDC Director Admits Latest COVID Restrictions Based On What Government "Thought People Would Be Able To Tolerate"

Appearing on CNN, Walensky addressed the fact that the CDC suddenly updated its guidelines after Joe Biden declared that “there is no federal solution” to the virus.

Restrictions including quarantine times were lessened from ten days to five.

“It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate,” Walensky starkly admitted.

She added, “We really want to make sure we have guidance in this moment where we were going to have a lot of disease that could be adhered to, that people were willing to adhere to, and that spoke to specifically when people were maximally infectious. So it really spoke to both behaviors and to what people were able to do.”

NATO is Transforming Ukraine Into Military Foothold Against Russia, Lavrov Tells Sputnik

The Russian foreign minister criticised the alliance for backing Kiev's militaristic aspirations and stressed that there will be an "adequate response" to any possible military provocations carried out by Ukraine.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has told Sputnik that NATO is trying to use Kiev as a tool against Russia.

"NATO member states are systematically transforming Ukraine into a military foothold against Russia, building their bases there, using its territory to conduct exercises. If this year there were seven such manoeuvres, then in the coming year, according to a law adopted by the Verkhovna Rada [the parliament] of Ukraine, 10 [drills are planned], including one year-round [exercise]", Lavrov said.

The outgoing year has seen an exodus of several employees from Kamala Harris' office, amid reports that part of the reason was the US vice president being nothing but a "bully" who forces her staffers to deal with "soul-destroying criticism".

US Vice President Kamala Harris appeared to be unready to give a clear-cut answer when asked about an economy-related issue during an interview, something that seems to highlight her staffers' alleged complaints that she declines "to wade into briefing materials".

Speaking to the host of CBS' "Face the Nation", Harris appeared to stumble on the basic issue of tackling "transitory inflation" and did not think twice before switching to topics pertaining to President Joe Biden's $1.75 trillion "Build Back Better Act".

Putin warns Biden of 'complete breakdown' in US-Russian relations

The Kremlin has revealed that Russian President Vladimir Putin has told his US counterpart Joe Biden that the introduction of new "unprecedented" sanctions could lead to a complete rupture of relations between the countries.

The presidents spoke by conference call, on Thursday, amid continuing tensions between Moscow and the West over Ukraine. The US and its allies have repeatedly sounded the alarm about the potential of a Russian invasion of its neighbor, citing an alleged buildup of troops within the country’s own borders. The Kremlin has dismissed the speculation as baseless, insisting it harbors no intention whatsoever of attacking its fellow former Soviet republic.

Biden apparently doubled down on the allegation, however, threatening to impose wide-ranging sanctions aimed at crippling Russia’s economy, its financial sector, and its military industry were there to be any “further escalation of the situation along the Ukrainian border,” Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov outlined.

Biden administration asks Supreme Court to let it end Trump-era 'Remain in Mexico' immigration policy

The Biden administration on Wednesday asked the Supreme Court for permission to end the Trump-era "remain in Mexico" program, which requires non-Mexican migrants to stay in Mexico until their US immigration court dates.

In August, a federal judge in Texas ordered the revival of the policy after the Department of Homeland Security attempted to end the program. An appeals court also ruled against the administration, which began to re-implement the program earlier this month.

Under former President Donald Trump, thousands of migrants were subject to the program, formally known as Migrant Protection Protocols, which has resulted in people living in makeshift camps along Mexico's northern border, often in squalor and dangerous conditions.

Thursday's talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his American counterpart Joe Biden will be a chance for both sides to put aside their differences and find a way to resolve growing tensions, the Kremlin has said.

Speaking hours before the telephone call is due to take place, Putin’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, said that “negotiations are conducted with one single goal – to reach a compromise, taking into account each side’s red lines.”

According to him, there have been a number of developments since the pair last spoke at the beginning of this month. “These are complex questions, the issues that we have on the agenda,” he cautioned. “After the last conversation, the Russian side has gone away and formulated its position.”

US President Joe Biden on 27 December signed the $768 billion defence spending bill for 2022, which is up about five percent from a year earlier. The Pentagon's 2022 budget includes $4 billion for the European Deterrence Initiative, $7.1 billion for the so-called Pacific Deterrence Initiative (PDI), and $300 million in security assistance for Ukraine, according to the White House.

Earlier on Tuesday, a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council told Agence France-Presse that bilateral talks had been scheduled for January 10. Representatives from the NATO alliance are also tentatively set to meet two days later and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) the day after that.

Joe Biden appears to have opposed a provision in the NDAA that required him to share detailed reports on Iran's military capabilities and activities, according to a White House statement released shortly after the president signed the bill.

Biden said that several provisions of the NDAA, including one related to Iran (Sec. 1227(a)(1), which requires a "detailed description" of the country's military advancements, oil transfers, missile launches and the like, would "effectively require executive departments and agencies to submit reports to certain committees that will include highly sensitive classified information, including information that could reveal critical intelligence sources or military operational plans".

Biden to Governors on the C-Flu: “There Is No Federal Solution”Oh?

When President Biden’s public utterances make the news, it’s sometimes hard to tell whether he’s signaling a substantive shift or merely wandering off message. On a call with governors Monday to discuss the Covid-19 pandemic, this is how Mr. Biden started his remarks: “There is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level.”

Oh? During the 2020 presidential campaign, Mr. Biden pledged “to shut down the virus, not the country.” He also slammed President Trump in a debate, saying: “Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States of America.” Mr. Biden’s policies have followed that approach, as when his Education Department inserted itself into state and local debates over school mask policies.

"We in Moscow are committed to raising the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons. An opposite trend has been seen in the United States over the recent years, with the means for nuclear destruction appearing to be perceived more and more as a battlefield weapon. This is a dangerous trend," Ryabkov said, according to Russia’s TASS news agency.

Biden's Troubled Relationship With The Truth... And Consequences

President Biden’s approval rating has plummeted, and Democrats wonder why. The United States is facing hardships, but hardships alone don’t make a president unpopular. Leaders who are honest about the problems we face and forthright about the solutions they offer tend to do well (think, say, of Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan). Unfortunately, that is not the leadership Americans are getting from this president.

Instead, the Biden administration has tried to convince the public of things that are not just untrue but implausible. To note a few, Biden did not (and does not) have a “national strategy” to defeat COVID; our southern border is not “secure;” the Afghan withdrawal was not an “extraordinary success”; the current bout of inflation is neither “temporary” nor “a good thing”; and government spending never takes “the pressure off of inflation.”

RIP, 'Pandemic Of The Unvaccinated'

If you spend too much time observing the way politicians speak, you'll pick up an almost perceptibly mechanical gear-shift in their heads when the brain-groove reminds them to reproduce an anecdote or talking point they have formulated so many times before. Occasionally the subconscious rebels against the alienating monotony with apologetic prefix clauses like, "That's why I like to say," or "I always tell the story that," but the pre-sets mostly override such human twitches to deliver the desired political result.

So it was for President Joe Biden's counterproductive "pandemic of the unvaccinated" slogan, which the White House COVID-19 Response Team introduced in mid-July, and which the president was still regurgitating inaccurately as late as December 14.

Almost every US ally claims to be a friend because of America’s military. It’s really not shared values or even interests. Other nations like being defended by a superpower, so they need not spend much on their militaries.

The result is that America has a couple score spoiled, entitled, and obnoxious "allies" who under-invest in their militaries, whine if the US looks anywhere else, demand constant "reassurance" that Washington will forever protect them even if they do nothing for themselves, and insist that it is in America’s interest to create a permanent defense dole for the indolent, disinterested, irresponsible, and greedy among them – which of course is most of them.

US DEFENSE DEPARTMENT TO ALLOCATE $260 MILLION FOR PESHMERGA FORCES

US President Joe Biden on Monday (December 28) signed his country's defense budget bill for 2022, which would allocate $260 million for Peshmerga forces in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and $177 million for Syrian Kurds and another force called al-Thawra.

The Voice of America published a report and said Biden's signature directly makes the project lawful. In other words, the Department of Defense (DOD) can start spending the $771 billion allocated to it next year.

This time, the Pentagon’s budget will increase by five percent due to inflation. The budget of defense department employees will increase by 2.7 percent next year.

Details of how the budget will be spent in the Middle East have been published in a DOD appendix. and it is written $5 million will be allocated to the Peshmerga to buy Puma drones.

AeroVironment RQ-20 Puma is an American company in California that builds drones for spying or data collection, not attacking.

More money for Peshmerga, less for Baghdad

Borrell Calls Russia's Demand to Stop EU, NATO Eastward Expansion Unacceptable

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has called Russia's demands about security guarantees and about stopping the EU and NATO's eastward expansion unacceptable.

"Demands about security guarantees and stopping the EU and NATO's eastward expansion are a purely Russian agenda with completely unacceptable conditions, especially regarding Ukraine", Borrell said in an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt.

On 17 December, Russia published its projected agreements with the US and NATO member states on mutual security guarantees in Europe and non-deployment of intermediate- and short-range missiles within each other's reach. The agreements also involve a demand for NATO to refrain from further expansion, including by accepting former Soviet republics.

According to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, the NATO and US refusal to respond to Russia's demand for security guarantees could lead to a new phase of confrontation.

John Bolton served as national security adviser under former US President Donald Trump. A vocal foreign policy hawk, he has had a harsh stance on Russia, labelling its alleged 2016 election meddling "an act of war" and calling for strong "deterrence" to counter Moscow.

Former US National Security Adviser John Bolton has rolled out an op-ed for 19FortyFive, suggesting his view on the mistakes and misjudgments made by the West concerning Russia and the "hegemonic agenda" Bolton believes is being pursued by the Kremlin.

According to the ex-Trump adviser, the West has "made two fundamental mistakes in the years since Russia's new flag was first raised over the Kremlin".

Newsweek: Armed Republicans will Overthrow Government if Trump Loses in 2024

There is fearmongering, and then there is Newsweek-level fearmongering. The once-respected news magazine – which a former reporter recently described as “a painful embarrassment to anyone who toiled there in its golden age,” which is now known for its incendiary click-bait – is at it again, blasting conservatives, gun owners and the Second Amendment, while warning its shrinking über-woke readership of a coming civil war. -- A recent story by their science writer, David H. Freedman, titled “Millions of Angry, Armed Americans Stand Ready to Seize Power If Trump Loses in 2024,” is so biased, so heavily spun and just so damn creepy, it defies belief that it was actually set into type by an alleged news publication, or what purports to be a news publication or, more accurately, what used to be an actual news publication.

It’s like they are competing over this! Biden Approval Rating Falls Below Kamala Harris for First Time in Office, Per Latest Gallup Poll

President Joe Biden’s approval rating is below that of his Vice President Kamala Harris for the first time they took office, according to a recent poll released by Gallup. -- The surprising polling results come from a poll in which just over 800 randomly sampled adults were interviewed by telephone between December 1st and the 16th.  The purpose of the poll was to ascertain approval and disapproval for U.S Leaders.

While Country Has Been Distracted By BBB Fail, Biden Admin Sneaking Something By

Former chief operating officer and acting commissioner for Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Mark Morgan, told Breitbart News that the Biden administration and Democrats intend to include a “mass amnesty proposal” for illegal aliens in an appropriation bill marketed by the White House as a “Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill.”

“The White House and Democrats are trying to pass through a mass amnesty proposal as part of the infrastructure,” Morgan warned on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM's ``Breitbart News Daily, hosted by Alex Marlow. “That in and of itself is ridiculous, but they’re also doing it through a complicated, seldom-used reconciliation process. It’s an end-run around needing a 60-vote requirement to get a bill passed [in the Senate].”

'Russia is Back': Moscow Won't Back Down, Ending Era of NATO Expansion is Possible, Observers Say

Russian President Vladimir Putin on 23 December held an annual press conference with a special focus on Russo-American talks over security guarantees on NATO's non-enlargement. CSM correspondent Fred Weir and international affairs analyst Gilbert Doctorow have explained what is behind Putin's message to NATO.

President Putin emphasised on 23 December that national security is Russia’s number one priority, condemning Western countries for breaking their vow that NATO would not expand eastward.

The Russian president stressed that the USSR had done everything to build normal relations with the United States and the West: American specialists and CIA personnel received access to Soviet military facilities and the government. However, since the 1990s there have been five waves of NATO enlargement, with the alliance bringing its military infrastructure and missiles to Russia's doorstep, according to Putin.

Biden Admin Mocked For Awkward Self-Applause

White House chief of staff, Ron Klain, drew mixed reactions on social media when he retweeted a post that described 2021 as "not all bad," late on Sunday night.

Klain, who is known to stir the pot on Twitter, retweeted a column written by Albert Hunt, the former executive editor of Bloomberg News, which was published in The Hill. The title was, "Let's Be Honest: 2021 Wasn't All Bad." The White House official retweeted the post, captioning it, "A look back at 2021!"

Russia doubts its demand to halt NATO’s eastward expansion will gain traction — Lavrov

Russia is doubtful its demand to halt NATO’s eastward expansion will gain traction, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview aired on Monday.

Russia released its proposals for security guarantees to the wider public recently to prevent the West from sweeping them under the rug, he said in an interview with the Soloviev Live YouTube channel.

Still, "we have serious doubts that the key thing in the proposals - the unconditional demand for a halt to NATO’s eastward expansion - won’t fall by the wayside," Lavrov said.

Russia is now waiting for the planned talks on security guarantees and will move ahead based on what it will hear back from the US on the proposals.

On December 17, the Russian Foreign Ministry released draft agreements on security guarantees addressed to the US and NATO. They had been handed over to a US representative on December 15.

Russian Defence Ministry: NATO Preparing for Large-Scale High-Intensity Conflict With Moscow

Moscow has expressed concerns about the concentration of Western alliance missile systems, troops, warships, and aircraft near Russia's borders, and NATO's decades' long eastward expansion. This month, the Russian Foreign Ministry formally signalled that it considers Ukraine to be a “red line” for Moscow that NATO is strongly advised not to cross.

NATO is preparing for a large-scale armed conflict with Russia, in contravention of the Rome Declaration of 2002, Russian Deputy Defence Minister Alexander Fomin has said.
"The bloc's military construction has been completely reorientated toward preparing for a large-scale, high-intensity armed conflict with Russia", Fomin said at a diplomatic briefing of 105 foreign military attaches, including representatives of 14 NATO countries, in Moscow on Monday.

With Tanking Poll Numbers, How Long Can Anti-Gun Biden Hang On?

His attempt to appoint a gun control lobbyist to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives embarrassingly crashed last summer, his Build Back Boondoggle derailed last week, and his poll numbers sinking like lead in a hot tub. Can Joe Biden hang on or is he already a lame-duck unable to push an agenda that includes gun control as a priority? -- Western Journal is reporting a recent Economist-YouGov poll showing “fewer than 3 in 10 Americans under 30 approve of the president’s job after a year in office.

‘Laugh Out Loud Comedy’: Internet Reels as VP Harris Calls ‘Democracy’ Biggest US Security Threat

Vice President Kamala Harris’s interview on CBS’ Face the Nation revealed that slip-ups and verbal blunders of this administration are not limited solely to 79-year Joe Biden - the oldest President in US history, who has on occasion referred to his second-in-command as ‘President.’

Internet users were in stitches over Kamala Harris’s interview for CBS News, which aired on Sunday. After she appeared to misspeak and answered “democracy” when asked what America’s greatest national security challenge was, Twitter erupted in a barrage of comments.

Responses from users alternated between marvelling at how “unprepared’ the VP was for the interview and questioning her knowledge of what democracy was.

US threatens Russia with unprecedented sanctions

The White House is coordinating a package of ‘high-impact’ restrictive measures to slap on Moscow in case it invades Ukraine

If Moscow encroaches on Ukraine’s sovereignty, the US will impose sanctions against Russia like no one has ever seen before, Vice President Kamala Harris warned on Sunday.

In an interview with CBS, on Sunday, American Vice President Kamala Harris said that Washington is coordinating its position with allies and is making sure that the Kremlin is aware of the possible consequences of military action.

“We are having direct conversations with Russia. The president, as you know, met recently virtually with Putin, and we are very clear that Russia should not invade the sovereignty of Ukraine, that we must stand up and we are standing up for its territorial integrity,” she said. “We are working with our allies in that regard, and we’ve been very clear that we are prepared to issue sanctions like you’ve not seen before.”

As they bask in the limelight and enjoy celebrity status, over 1,000 of their coworkers will be celebrating the holiday with no job and, in many cases, an uncertain future ahead of them.

This is because their former coworkers at Northwell Health who refused to get the vaccine were fired earlier this year. These singing nurses are among those who complied to keep their jobs.

Washington Post Rushes To Defend Biden Over Supply Chain Crisis: ‘Americans Need To Lower Expectations’

The Washington Post received a fair amount of criticism after running an op-ed suggesting Americans shouldn’t complain about President Biden’s supply chain crisis and the consequent hit on our standard of living but rather, we should simply lower our expectations.

Supply chain issues have become so prevalent of late that White House officials admitted in regards to Christmas shopping this year, “There will be things that people can’t get.”

Businesses nationwide are short-staffed and food shortages are becoming so common that people are posting images of their local grocery store’s empty shelves and forcing Twitter hashtags like #EmptyShelvesJoe to trend.

None of that is Biden’s fault per se, writes Micheline Maynard for the Washington Post.

UK Reportedly Has 'Exit Strategy' for Its Troops From Ukraine if ‘Conflict’ With Russia Escalates

The US and EU have accused Russia of massing troops on the border with Ukraine in what Kiev claims is preparation for an invasion. Russia, which insists it is at liberty to move military personnel anywhere within its territory, on 17 December published its proposals on mutual security guarantees with the US and NATO.

British troops deployed in a training and advisory role in Ukraine will be swiftly evacuated in the event of an alleged "Russian invasion", the Daily Express reported.
Commanders of the British Armed Forces have already drawn up such contingency plans, according to sources cited by the outlet.

Currently, over a 100 British personnel, predominantly stationed at Yavoriv, Lviv region, are believed to be deployed in the country together with Polish, US, and Canadian forces.

Washington Prepares To Fail In Ukraine

It’s an indisputable fact: Washington leads the world in self-delusion.

Washington’s political class is poised to march into a hurricane of its own making in Ukraine, a perfect storm of foreign- and defense-policy blunders likely to plunge the American people into future crises and conflicts. Having refused to acknowledge Russia’s vital strategic interest in Ukraine, Washington now wants to subject Ukraine and the NATO alliance to a dangerous and unnecessary test by confronting Russian conventional military power. In turn, Washington and its allies now face a test—one that they could have avoided but are now likely to fail. First, the facts.

The Biden administration is spending $768.2 billion for national defense. Russia spends only $42.1 billion, less than the $48 billion spent by the Republic of Korea. Yet Russian ground forces are superior in capability and striking power to the U.S. Army and Marines, even if both countries’ ground forces were able to deploy to Ukraine.

US, JAPAN DRAFT PLANS TO SET UP ATTACK BASE IN EVENT CHINA INVADES TAIWAN

Coming days after the US and Japan reached an agreement on a new cost-sharing deal for Tokyo to continue hosting around 50,000 US troops, for which Japan will pay $9.2 billion over the next five years, which is a significant cost increase compared to what Tokyo was previously paying, a joint draft plan has been revealed for an emergency response contingency in the event China threatens to invade Taiwan.

First reported in Japan's Kyodo news agency on Thursday, unnamed Japanese officials detailed the plan was struck between the US and Japanese militaries, and arranges for a forward operating base to be establish on southwest islands, where the US Marine Corps would rapidly deploy troops.

Kyodo details that "Japan's Self-Defense Forces and the U.S. military have drawn up a draft joint operation plan that would enable the setup of an attack base along the Nansei island chain in the country's southwest in the event of a Taiwan contingency, according to Japanese government sources."

Supreme Court fast tracks Biden Vaccine Mandate…

The Supreme Court fast-tracked two disputes over Biden’s efforts to expand Vaccinations. In an unusual move, the justices announced on Wednesday night that they will hear oral arguments on Jan. 7 on two federal policies: a vaccine-or-test mandate for workers at large employers, and a vaccine mandate for health care workers at facilities that receive federal funding.

The cases came to the court last week on an emergency basis, and the formal question in both disputes is whether the government should be allowed to enforce the policies while litigation challenging them continues. But the justices’ views on whether to grant emergency relief will likely be influenced by their views on the merits of the underlying challenges themselves.

NATO, Russia and the Other Broken Promise

Pressured by ever encroaching NATO expansion toward its borders and increased lethal arms sales to, and flirtations with, Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent the US a proposal on mutual security guarantees and an urgent request for immediate negotiations.

The security proposal has many clauses, but two of the leading proposals are that:

“The United States of America shall take measures to prevent further eastward expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and deny accession to the Alliance to the former USSR republics”

The United States accepts the "obligation not to establish military bases in former Soviet states that are not NATO members, not to use their infrastructure to carry out any military activity, and not to develop bilateral military cooperation with them."

Putin Slams US for Deploying Missiles to Russia’s ‘Doorstep’

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday slammed the US for its military expansion in Eastern Europe as Russia is seeking guarantees that NATO won’t move further east.

“We have made it clear that Nato’s move to the east is unacceptable,” Putin said at an annual year-end press conference. “The United States is standing with missiles on our doorstep. Is it an excessive requirement not to install shock systems at our house? How would the Americans react if missiles were placed at the border with Canada or Mexico?”

Putin pointed out that at the end of the Cold War, the US said NATO wouldn’t expand. “Sometimes it seems we are living in different worlds,” he said. “They said they wouldn’t expand, but they are expanding,” he said.

'Biden seems confused': CNN questions president's cognitive health and points out he mixed up COVID-19 tests with antiviral pills in his ABC interview

A CNN corresponded said Wednesday that Joe Biden 'seemed confused' in his ABC News interview earlier this week, when the president appeared to mix up COVID-19 at-home tests and antiviral pills.

Biden, 79, spoke to ABC's David Muir for 20 minutes in an interview that aired on Wednesday and defended his administration against criticism of its handling of the pandemic and readiness for the rapidly spreading Omicron variant, but also admitting that there were certain mistakes made.

When asked about complaints that the lines to get tested for COVID-19 were excessive, with waits of over five hours in New York City as one example, Biden said that 500 million at-home tests had been ordered.

White House Says Biden Is ‘Asymptomatic,’ Setting Off A Firestorm Of Questions On His Health

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki caused a commotion after she said something rather head-scratching about President Joe Biden

It was during a press conference on Tuesday that Psaki spoke about the president’s health after it was reported that he had been in “close contact” with someone who tested positive for COVID.

“As we stated last summer, we believe it is in the public’s interest to know if any of the four principals (President, Vice President, First Lady, and Second Gentleman) are considered to have been in close contact with a White House official who subsequently tests positive for COVID-19 shortly after that contact. The criteria for what is considered a ‘close contact’ with the principals is determined by the White House Medical Unit, in line with CDC guidance,” The White House said.

Another temporary halt to Biden's Covid-19 vaccine mandates for federal contractors

Yet another federal court has placed a temporary hold on President Biden's Covid-19 vaccine mandates for federal contractors in ten states. This time, the decision came from a federal judge in Missouri.

That means the mandate cannot be enforced, for the time being, in states that are part of a coalition challenging them in court: Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

Two Republican Attorneys General are leading the fight in court, calling the mandate unconstitutional.

There was already a nationwide halt in place from a federal court in Georgia. It made the same decision on behalf of seven states suing: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, South Carolina, Utah, and West Virginia.

Russia has been seeking written assurances about the presence of US troops and hardware near its borders, he said, but even those assurances could not be depended on.

Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, announced Monday afternoon that he had given U.S. Customs and Border Protection authorization to press forward with Arizona, California, and Texas projects. The new sign-offs are in addition to several announced in June and July to address “urgent life, safety, environmental, or other remediation required to protect border communities.”

Yesterday the Washington Post published a piece by foreign affairs columnist David Ignatius called The Biden administration weighs backing Ukraine insurgents if Russia invades; an offering in keeping with parallel efforts by the likes of Max Boot, Senator Christopher Murphy and Ian Brzezinski also aiming at formulating a plan for luring Russia into a war of attrition in Ukraine.

Whereas the others cited examine and in effect advocate replicating everything from the 1939-1940 Finnish-Soviet Winter War to the Nazi-allied Ukrainian Insurgent Army guerrilla war of the 1940s and early 1950s to the CIA’s Afghan Mujahideen war of the 1980s and early 1990s to the Polish crisis of 1980, Ignatius’ feature goes further by disclosing the Joe Biden administration has established a multi-agency task force to plan and implement such a project.

If NATO Rebuffs Russian Security Proposals, Kremlin Will Deploy Advanced Weapons To Ukraine Border

Russia is still awaiting a definitive response after last week it delivered a series of security proposals in the form of two separate draft documents submitted to Brussels and Washington. First floated by Putin amid the growing Ukraine standoff, they are intended to kickstart serious negotiations that would ensure the peaceful co-existence of Russia and NATO, central to which is Moscow's demand of no more NATO eastward expansion.

An initial response was issued over the weekend on the occasion of German Defense minister Christine Lambrecht's visit to Lithuania, where she vowed that Russia will not "dictate" NATO's affairs. Lambrecht said, "We have to talk to each other, which means discussing the proposals that Russia has put forward, but it cannot be that Russia dictates to NATO partners how they position themselves."

Biden Staff Did 'Inexcusable' Things: Manchin

Update (1515ET): Manchin on Monday laid out possible changes to the $2 trillion Build Back Better economic agenda which might encourage him to reverse his "no" on the legislation.

For starters, Manchin said he would only support a $1.75 trillion bill that seriously overhauls the US tax code, and that significantly lowers the cost of a broader array of prescription drugs vs. the current offering.

"If you’re going to negotiate then negotiate. Don’t start picking and choosing and playing games," he said.

Watchdog Warns Biden Will Install Build Back Better Through Executive Orders

A regulations watchdog predicted that President Joe Biden will try to use executive orders to implement his $2 trillion Build Back Better legislation.

Clyde Wayne Crews, of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told the Washington Examiner that Biden appeared poised to expand federal regulations greatly, especially if he loses control of the House and Senate.

Former President Barack Obama called that approach ruling with a "pen and a phone" when he lost support on Capitol Hill, the Examiner said.

"Despite all the talk we have from Biden and many Democrats about protecting democracy, progressives see themselves as experts, and progressivism itself is rooted in the rule of experts," Crews told the Examiner.

“The number of containers sitting on the docks at ports for over a week has been cut by half since the beginning of November, and store shelves are stocked for the holiday season,” the White House wrote.

The number of ships delayed outside the ports has not been reported below 100 since September.

And just like that, with barely a whimper, Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar spending baby is officially dead.

Build Back Better, the most awkward weird-sounding name for a piece of pork-ridden legislation is toast.

And now, Biden and his staff are furious at United States Senator Joe Manchin – a fellow Democrat who represents the poverty-stricken state of West Virginia – because he was the lone Democrat to stand up and kill the baby in its crib.

Here’s what happened according to the conservative news site Breitbart:

“The White House issued a condemnation of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on Sunday after the senator said he would not vote for the Build Back Better bill, effectively killing it in its current form.

Tucker Carlson: Biden’s COVID policies are the muscle spasms of a dying political party

So you may not have noticed because the people in charge of diverting your attention are working overtime right now, and honestly, they're pretty good at their jobs, but if you look around, pay a little closer attention, you will notice that Joe Biden's political support is in the process of collapsing completely.

The new Marist polls out, it shows that only 29% of independents support Joe Biden. That is a very bad number. How bad is it? For perspective, in the last election, Donald Trump took 41% of independent voters and lost. So if you're a political consultant, a poll that shows 29% independents support sends you immediately to the liquor cabinet for more vodka. It means your candidate is going to lose along with everyone who's connected to your candidate. You're looking at this tsunami forming on the horizon aimed at you. It's terrifying.

Is Joe Biden About To Impose Destructive New Restrictions On The U.S. Economy In Order To Fight Omicron?

It seems like it was just yesterday that we were told that a new variant called “Omicron” had been discovered in southern Africa. Now it is being reported that Omicron is suddenly spreading like wildfire all over North America and Europe, and we are being told that a very “dark winter” is ahead of us. Of course whenever case numbers start rising again, the Biden administration feels as though it must do something. So on Tuesday, Joe Biden is going to deliver another “major address” to the nation. Unfortunately, many are anticipating that he may introduce more destructive restrictions which could significantly damage the U.S. economy as we head into 2022.

When it comes to the pandemic, we all know that Biden listens to the “scientists”, and right now the “scientists” are scaring the living daylights out of the general public.

For example, over the weekend Dr. Television warned that Omicron will soon put severe stress on hospital systems all across America…

White House: US Ready to Engage in Diplomacy With Russia, Says Dialogue Must Be Based on Reciprocity

Earlier, Russia called for a resumption of the NATO-Russia channel of communication along the military line amid simmering tensions near the Ukrainian border.

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan on Monday told Yuri Ushakov, an aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin, that Washington is ready to engage in diplomacy with Moscow, including through the NATO-Russia Council and the OSCE.

According to the White House, Sullivan noted that the dialogue must be based on reciprocity and "address our concerns about Russia’s actions".

"Substantive progress can only occur in an environment of de-escalation rather than escalation”, the White House said, describing the Monday conversation between the officials.
