Russia Must Not Be Crippled, But Destroyed Like The Soviet Union Before It

30 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The Soviet Union is dead and buried. I was in Berlin when it happened; and I cheered it on.[2]  Soviet soldiers were selling their uniforms and plumbing fixtures from their barracks, and going back to “tent cities” in the once-mighty USSR.

It was a humiliating experience for them.  Having been a KGB killer in East Germany (or the DDR), surely Vladimir Putin remembers this well.  The “Iron Curtain” that separated East from West crumbled overnight; and the ominous guard towers were gone.

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has asked “Will Putin Submit To US-Imposed ‘Weakening’?”[3]  The answer is that he will not have a choice if he is dead and buried, like Adolf Hitler before him. As I have written previously:

Russia is weaker today than the former USSR before it collapsed.  It spans nine time zones and includes 160 ethnic groups that speak an estimated 100 languages.  It is by no means monolithic, and may crumble “overnight.”  Once Putin is gone, Russia may be dismembered—never to rise again—with China taking part (e.g., Siberia, which it covets) and the rest becoming independent states like the former Yugoslavia.

Each of the new states will act in its own best interests, just as has been true in the former Yugoslavia, and among the countries that were spun off from the USSR—which have thrived as part of the West. Putinism will not survive Putin.  It will suffer an ignominious death, like its namesake; and constitute a tragic watershed in history, like Adolf Hitler’s “Thousand Year Reich” and Nazism.[4]

If this does not happen, China will likely move on Taiwan; and World War III may have begun in earnest.[5]  Having given us the deadly Coronavirus pandemic, Taiwan would be the next logical step for Xi Jinping and China’s other despotic rulers.

After all, they have snuffed out Hong Kong’s fledgling democracy; enslaved approximately 1 million ethnic minorities including the Uyghurs; used EMP weapons to “fry” Indian soldiers in their border war with that country; and implemented draconian Covid restrictions in Shanghai and elsewhere.[6]

All of this hinges on the death of Putin.[7]  He must be butchered; symbolically torn from limb to limb; and it must happen now, not weeks or months from now.  His death may partially atone for the sins of Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung—each a mass killer who will welcome Putin at the Gates of Hell.

When the first Ukrainian died, Putin should have died.[8]

Russians Are The Walking Dead

23 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

There are reasons to believe that the end is approaching for Russia’s KGB-trained killer and butcher, Vladimir Putin.  Visible signs are present that his health is failing, perhaps even faster than that of his nemesis Joe Biden.[2]  When Putin dies, there will be global sighs of relief that pure evil has been eradicated from the Earth.  At the very least, both American women and men will rejoice and celebrate that he is gone.

However, that will not end this tragic period in world history.  Approximately 80 percent of Russians have supported him.  They will be the lepers or “untouchables” of the world, who are shunned globally—each and every one of them.  When World War II ended, Americans refused to buy German and Japanese cars.  On my first trip to Europe 20 years later, I bought and drove a Volkswagen Beetle; and I will never forget being in Holland where a Dutch farmer asked why an American was driving a German car.

This may be the legacy of Putin’s killing machine, long after it has been laid to rest, like Hitler’s before it.  Women will remember their counterparts in Ukraine who had to be buried in closed caskets, without their loved ones viewing them, because what had been done to them was so atrocious and inhuman.  Babies, young kids, Ukrainian men, and the elderly bespeak tales of torture, starvation and the like.

Russians are savages.  They have been that way for generations.  It seems to be bred into them.  Yes, to generalize or paint with a broad brush is often unfair and even irresponsible.  But one example will suffice.  As stated previously:

When [Joseph Stalin’s] military forces entered Berlin at the end of World War II, they raped an estimated 2 million German women, the largest mass raping and degradation of women in human history.  A former secretary of mine was a young girl there; and she told me that she had seen things which were unspeakable, and no human being should ever see.”[3]

These were the ancestors or progenitors of today’s Russians, who are the walking dead of the world.  While the Russian military has been proving itself to be inept, and comprised of butchers[4]—which will not be forgotten by the world for at least a generation—Putin does have nukes that he may use in Ukraine and elsewhere, out of desperation.

Putin Must Die Now

16 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The title of this article may seem absurd or even repugnant to some.  But the atrocities and destruction in Ukraine may only stop when Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin is dead, like Adolf Hitler before him.  Otherwise, such madness may continue and broaden into a much-wider war, possibly international in scope.

The savagery and brutality that Putin has unleashed is unspeakable, obscene and inhuman, with potentially much worse yet to come.  Ukrainian women have been raped and tortured.  Their babies have been killed or orphaned.  Their husbands or significant others have died or been wounded, or taken prisoner by Putin’s animals, perhaps never to be seen alive again.

All of this is what Joseph Stalin did.  When his military forces entered Berlin at the end of World War II, they raped an estimated 2 million German women, the largest mass raping and degradation of women in human history.  A former secretary of mine was a young girl there; and she told me that she had seen things which were unspeakable, and no human being should ever see.

What Putin has done and continues doing defies all notions of a civilized world, and is barbaric.  But this is all he knows, and it is consistent with the rest of his life.[2]  None of this will end until he is dead.  There is no other way, and he knows it.  A tragic commentary on Russians today is that most of them support him.  Thus, they too have the blood of innocents on their hands.  Even if they are treated as lepers, and ostracized by much of the world for a generation, many or most will not change.

Years ago I was in Germany; and a German woman told me that the only thing wrong with Adolf Hitler was that he had not killed all of the Jews.[3]  Her family had supported his rise to power in Munich; and I listened because I wanted to understand the history of the past, as well as existing German sentiments.

At the end of that tragic war, Germany was divided, with the Soviet Union taking East Berlin and East Germany, or the DDR, which became the most repressive regime in the Soviet Union’s orbit, and where Putin perfected his art of killing.  He is truly a monster now, but many residents of the former DDR support him.  Also, he is spreading disinformation in the United States and the West.  But the truth gets through.[4]

The Godless Putin must die.  How it happens and by whose hand is unknown.  However, the civilized world owes it to future generations to end the atrocities that Putin has inflicted on Ukraine and elsewhere, just as Americans of what has been described as “The Greatest Generation”—and their allies in other nations—sacrificed for us.

We cannot allow World War III to begin in earnest in distant Ukraine.  Putin must be put down now, like a rabid animal.  And the courageous Ukrainians have shown us the way.  They must not die or suffer in vain.  Indeed, the resurrection of those who have died will begin with Putin’s death.

Terminate Putin Now, And The War In Ukraine May End, And World War III Might Be Avoided

12 03 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Americans, Europeans and much of the world are shocked by Vladimir Putin’s 21st Century atrocities, and that of his Russian thugs in Ukraine.  Each day this nightmare continues and grows more grotesque, but it follows the pattern of his twisted life.  Twelve years ago, I wrote that it was a mistake to view him as a “Westernized Russian democrat.”  He is a cold-blooded killer, and pure evil—just as evil and sinister as Adolf Hitler, Mao Tse-tung and Joseph Stalin, who murdered millions.[2]

There are so many people in this world who are struggling each and every day to make it, and survive, and to be good neighbors—as China’s Coronavirus pandemic may be winding down, which has killed and hurt millions.  To witness evil like that of Putin adds to the stress and anxiety in their lives.  This is certainly true of mothers who empathize with the victims, but also of fathers whose anger toward Putin and the cruelty of his military is not difficult to fathom or comprehend.

It has been said that Putin’s attack on Ukraine’s capital Kyiv may become his Stalingrad.  The UK’s Daily Mail has summarized that battle as follows:

The battle for Stalingrad was the turning point of the Second World War. After the German invasion of Russia — codenamed Operation Barbarossa, which began in June 1941 — the Wehrmacht continued to head eastward, destroying whole Soviet armies and capturing two million prisoners, most of whom they starved to death.

In Washington and London, leaders wondered gloomily how long the Russians could stave off absolute defeat.

In the spring of 1942, Hitler’s legions drove deeper into the Russian heartland, besieging St Petersburg, over-running the Crimea, and threatening the oilfields of the Caucasus.

The Fuhrer was convinced the Russians were at their last gasp.  He was exultant when in June ‘Operation Blue’ enabled his armies to occupy new swathes of central Russia.

Scenting final victory, Hitler deputed General Friedrich Paulus, a staff officer eager to prove himself as a fighting commander, to lead a dash for the city on the Volga that was named after Stalin, and secure a symbolic triumph, while another German army group swung southwards to grab the oilfields.

Hitler’s top soldiers were appalled by the perils of splitting the Wehrmacht merely to capture Stalingrad, which was strategically unimportant.  Their protests were ignored: the Fuhrer insisted.

Likewise in Moscow, when the German objective became plain, Russia’s dictator Josef Stalin gave the order that ‘his’ city must be held at any cost.  Thus the stage was set for one of history’s most terrible clashes of arms, in which on the two sides more than a million men became locked in strife between the autumn of 1942 and the following spring.

On September 12, the first German troops entered Stalingrad.  From the Kremlin came a new order to the Red Army: ‘Not a step back . . . The only extenuating circumstance is death.’

The first German air attacks killed between 10,000 and 40,000 people — almost as many as died in the entire London blitz. Shellfire and bombs rained down on the city, day after day and week upon week.

Stuka pilot Herbert Pabst wrote: ‘It is incomprehensible to me how people can continue to live in that hell, but the Russians are firmly established in the wreckage, in ravines, cellars, and in a chaos of twisted skeletons of factories’.

General Vasily Chuikov, commanding Stalin’s 62nd Army in the city, wrote: ‘The streets of the city are dead.  There is not a single green twig on the trees; everything has perished in the flames.’

The Russians initially held a perimeter 30 miles by 18, which shrank relentlessly as Paulus’s men thrust forward to within a few hundred yards of the Volga.

Each night, up to three thousand Russian wounded were ferried eastward from the city, while a matching stream of reinforcements, ammunition and supplies reached the defenders.

New units were thrust into the battle as fast as they arrived, to join duels in the ruins that often became hand-to-hand death grapples.

Both sides were chronically short of food and water.  The few surviving civilians suffered terribly, eking a troglodyte existence in cellars.

Some soldiers were reduced to cannibalism in order to stay alive in the ruins of the city as the mercury plunged to -40C.

The bloodiest battle in Second World War came to an end on January 31, 1943 when Field Marshall Paulus surrendered, disobeying the orders of his Fuhrer to kill himself.

Of the 110,000 Germans who surrendered, only 5,000 would survive Stalin’s gulags to return to a defeated Germany.

The battle cost the German army a quarter of everything it possessed by way of material – guns, tanks and munitions.  It was a defeat from which it never recovered and for days afterwards in Berlin all shops and restaurants were closed as a mark of respect.[3]

Again, will Putin’s siege of Kyiv become his Stalingrad, and lead to his demise?  Many Ukrainians remember Stalin’s brutality toward those who came before them, in which an estimated 4 million died; and it is unlikely that they will trust Putin or any Russian.[4]

Assuming that Putin is terminated, will that bring the war in Ukraine to an end?  Likely so.  His cronies who survive may not wish to be targeted for the rest of their lives.  Also, none may be psychopathic megalomaniac killers like Putin.  Will Putin’s death make World War III less likely?  Probably so, unless China’s Xi Jinping is willing to die too, or be viewed as a global pariah for the rest of his life.

World War III Has Begun

1 03 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Yes, it has been argued that the long-feared World War III has begun already.  But it can be ended now by killing Russia’s psychopathic megalomaniac KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin.  It is critical to remember, and never forget: cut off the head of a snake, and the snake dies.[2]

The idea of dealing with Putin in the future is naïve.  Like Adolf Hitler before him, he must be removed permanently, having spread savagery and destruction in his path.  He is a cancer on the world, quite literally.[3]  Eliminate him now, and the problem is solved.  No more senseless deaths, injuries or terror.  A cost-effective and humane solution to this tragedy.[4]

We know that Putin has been staying in his “lair” or Versailles-like palace near Sochi.  Seemingly, it should be easy to vaporize that and other locations.[5]  Why should one more Ukrainian die or be injured or suffer in any way, when the problem can be solved?  If such a solution was readily available during World War II when Hitler was killing millions of Jews and others, would we have hesitated?  Why hesitate now?

Many of us served in America’s military, and in our intelligence services.  Isn’t it criminal to witness the deaths and other suffering of Ukrainian children, adults and the elderly—and the waste of so much money—when the solution turns on the elimination of one man, Putin, today’s Hitler?  Osama bin Laden was taken out.[6]  Why not Putin?

Is the world full of pathetic masochists, cowards and traitors, who prefer to suffer or see others suffer?  Again, would we have hesitated with respect to Hitler?  Didn’t the world cheer when Osama bin Laden’s death was announced by Barack Obama?  The opponents of such an approach argue that Putin has nuclear weapons at his disposal, which was not true of Hitler or bin Laden.[7]

Lots of us grew up as elementary school students with nuclear drills in our classrooms, hiding under our school desks and shielding our heads from “falling debris.” And we lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis when JFK and Robert Kennedy almost plunged us into a “nuclear winter” because of their recklessness.[8]

Next, if anything “untoward” should happen to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy or his family, the world will clamor for Putin’s head on a platter.  It is just that simple; and it may be unstoppable.  The Jewish former comedian and actor has become a global hero, who would be elevated to “sainthood.”[9]  But why wait for something tragic like that to happen?  Putin is a global pariah, who should be buried in an unmarked grave like Hitler.  Nothing less will suffice.  Why wait any longer to dispose of him?  The world will cheer when he is gone.

Lastly, destroy any and all Russian convoys, which should be like shooting fish in a barrel[10]; take no prisoners; and realize that bringing Putin to justice as a war criminal is a waste of time and resources.  Don’t pussyfoot around in destroying him and his ability to wage war anywhere ever again.  Send him on his way to be welcomed at the Godless Gates of Hell by Hitler and other tyrants in history.[11]

Putin Must Be Treated As A War Criminal

27 02 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Russia’s Vladimir Putin is a brutal killer, whose life consists of an unbroken thread of deaths and other atrocities.[2]  He has killed and killed again.  As I wrote in December of 2015:

After World War II, he came to prominence as a KGB operative in East Germany—or the DDR, as it was known before the collapse of Erich Honecker’s government—which was one of the most repressive regimes in the Soviet Union’s orbit, or the Evil Empire.  Following the USSR’s implosion, Putin and his thugs and cronies hijacked Russia’s incipient democracy, and have been exploiting it ever since.

Despite being a “public servant” all of his life, Putin has amassed a fortune estimated to be $70 billion; “Versailles” has been built for him already; and his cronies have amassed billions of dollars too, and are living like kings outside of Russia.  The Russian people need to recover what Putin and his cronies have stolen from them, and then terminate all of them—like the last Czar and his family, and Italy’s Benito Mussolini. Nothing less will suffice.

The world must never forget that Putin left the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing to launch his aggression against Georgia.  Then, he left the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and launched his aggression against Crimea and the rest of Ukraine.  Also, the world must never forget that in addition to downing Malaysia Airlines Flight 17—and killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board—Putin killed Alexander Litvinenko and countless others.[3]

Today, his personal fortune is estimated to be $200 billion.

Assuming that he does not commit suicide like Adolf Hitler did, or he is not assassinated, he must be tried as a war criminal like the Nazis were in the Nuremberg trials.[4]  However, between now and then, the world may experience brutality not seen since the dark days of World War II, with even more dangerous weapons and attacks being employed, such as cyberattacks and EMP attacks—in addition to nuclear weapons.[5]

If Putin is tried as a war criminal, he would join an illustrious list that includes Japanese Prime Ministers and Generals Hideki Tōjō and Kuniaki Koiso in the aftermath of World War II; Hermann Göring, Commander in Chief of Nazi Germany’s Luftwaffe; and Adolf Eichmann of Hitler’s SS.[6]

It must be repeated that our grudge is not with the Russian people.  They are victims of Putin’s monstrous crimes; and many are standing tall—at the risk of being imprisoned or killed—and opposing Russia’s Hitler.[7]

Lastly, such actions on the part of the United States and our allies may inure to the benefit of our friends on Taiwan.  They may cause China’s Xi Jinping to pause and think twice before embarking on ruinous actions against the island nation, or other global atrocities—and becoming more of a global pariah than China is already, having launched the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.[8]

Sever The Head Of A Snake, And It Dies

25 02 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1][2]

Russia is a pygmy state, run by the psychopathic megalomaniac KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin[3], who is hated globally.  Its economy is about the size of Texas, and less than that of Canada and a host of other countries.[4]

The Soviet Union, or USSR, collapsed from within.  It is gone now, without a shot being fired.  Putinism will die with Putin, and suffer an ignominious death.  Russia may implode too.  It spans nine time zones and includes 160 ethnic groups that speak an estimated 100 languages.  It is by no means monolithic, and may crumble “overnight.”

Putin needs to be decapitated, snuffed out, vaporized, or hung like Italy’s Benito Mussolini.  At the very least, he must be tried as a war criminal, in a Nuremberg-like trial, and treated as Hitler’s Nazis were.  With no mercy shown.[5]

Having slaughtered brave Ukrainians, Putin’s Russian forces may suffer massive executions by the Ukrainians who outnumber the Russian invaders.  No prisoners should be taken.  Indeed, Russians may rue the day that they supported and acted on behalf of the murderous Putin.

Lastly, our grudge is not with the Russian people.  They are victims of Putin’s monstrous crimes; and many are standing tall—at the risk of being imprisoned or killed—and opposing Russia’s Hitler.[6]

Russia’s KGB-Trained Killer Putin May Be More Dangerous Than Hitler Or Stalin

24 02 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

At first glance, the title of this article may seem absurd.  After all, Hitler and his Nazi thugs killed millions in the Holocaust, and during World War II.  And Joseph Stalin killed millions more, and is responsible for the greatest mass raping of women in history.[2]  What makes Putin different?

The answer is simple: he learned from what Hitler and Stalin did; and he seems determined not to make the same mistakes.  After all, his formative years were spent in the DDR, or East Germany, after Hitler’s Third Reich was crushed.  And he assumed power in Russia after the Soviet Union collapsed.[3]

He is pure evil, personified; and when he dies, Putinism dies with him.  Until that day, he will make his mark on world history.  Right now, he is playing with Joe Biden like a cat toys with a mouse.  At any time, the cat knows that the mouse can be consumed.

The sanctions that Biden and the West have levied against Russia are laughable, at the very least.  Does Biden know that Putin has enough “dirt” on his son Hunter and him so that Biden is incapacitated and will never act effectively?  Or is he so impaired both mentally and morally that all meaningful and strategically effective actions are off the table?[4]

After all, this is the father who watched Hunter leave his wife for his dead brother’s widow, and then drop her for a stripper whom he impregnated.  And Hunter denied his paternity until the woman proved it with DNA testing.  When the widow sought advice from Joe, he reportedly told her to get “mental health counseling.”[5]

Why is this relevant?  Because Biden is ostensibly the “Leader of the Free World” today; and if he cannot or will not take meaningful actions against Putin, this tells Xi Jinping all that he needs to know about Taiwan and China’s other ambitions globally.  Also, it sends a message loud and clear to both our friends and enemies that his humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan was not an aberration.[6]

Would Putin use nuclear weapons or other nation-ending weaponry against us?  In a nanosecond, if it was needed to save his life; namely, he was “cornered” and felt it was necessary for him to survive.  China would too, without any hesitations.  After all, in a real sense, Putin is fighting a proxy war against us for his “senior partner” China.  And China launched the deadly Coronavirus pandemic globally; it has used tactical EMP weapons already to “fry” Indian soldiers in its border war with that country; and it has enslaved approximately 1 million ethnic minorities including the Uyghurs.[7]

We are approaching very dangerous times ahead, perhaps unlike any that the United States has faced during our lifetimes.  And we have Joe Biden and Kamala Harris at the highest echelon of American decision making.  It is scary for those of us who love our country, and who have lived through other brutal wars.  Will America exist when the Biden-Harris presidency has run its course?  Time will tell.

If Anyone Doubts That America Is On The Verge Of A Two-Front War, They May Be Naive

20 02 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Some of us have lived through multiple wars, beginning with World War II—albeit we were babies or little kids then—followed by the Korean War, Vietnam, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and miscellaneous conflicts globally.  Some of us served in the American military at the Pentagon, and worked on Capitol Hill; and we have accumulated some experience with respect to how Washington and other global power centers function.[2]  Some have even followed Vladimir Putin’s rise to power as a young KGB officer in the DDR, or East Germany, which was one of the most repressive regimes in the former Soviet Union’s orbit.[3]

Putin was trained as a killer; and if he has any obsessions, they are to stay alive and stay in power.  And if he is beholden to anyone, it is to Xi Jinping and China’s other “masters,” whose goal is global domination by the end of this decade.  When Putin dies, Putinism is likely to die with him.  Between now and then, he will wield Russia’s military and strategic power like a “chess master.”  In a sense, he is acting as China’s surrogate by moving against Ukraine, while its leaders sit back and gauge American responses before they move on Taiwan and elsewhere globally.

In another sense, Putin is to China’s authoritarian leadership what Italy’s Benito Mussolini was to Adolf Hitler: playing “second fiddle” to someone who came very close to conquering much of the world.  Yes, Mussolini was a buffoon in many ways, and he and his mistress were hanged by the Italian people, but many died because of him.  Putin is not Mussolini; and his rise to power has been calculated and brilliant.  But on some level, he realizes that his time will pass, and that China is his future.

Both Putin and China’s leaders believe that Joe Biden is “mentally-challenged”—to be kind—and that Kamala Harris is even worse, and standing in the wings waiting for Biden to “croak.”[4]  In a sense, now is the opportune time to move on Ukraine, Taiwan and elsewhere, while incompetents run the United States.  Will this window of opportunity close if the Democrats suffer staggering election defeats in November?  Perhaps, but China’s goals are long term, while Putin’s perspective is much shorter.

America’s crushing defeat and humiliation in Afghanistan sent critical signals to our allies and adversaries globally that the Biden-Harris presidency was pathetically weak, if not doomed.  In Europe, our NATO allies were stunned; and the same has been true of our other alliances around the world.  If they could not trust the United States anymore, why risk confrontations with our enemies, especially China and Russia.[5]  And by hosting the Winter Olympics, China’s leadership “bought time” to see how Putin and the United States would respond to a “manufactured crisis” in Ukraine.  This too was brilliant.

If America would not go to war to “save” Ukraine, why would it go to war to save Taiwan from China’s grasp?  Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Ukraine’s President, has warned Kamala Harris that economic sanctions must be imposed against Russia before any invasion begins, but reportedly he was rebuffed.  Vitali Klitschko, a former professional boxer who is the Mayor of Kyiv—Ukraine’s largest city—may become a target of Putin for having railed against Russia’s aggression.[6]  After all, Ukraine’s former President Viktor Yushchenko was subjected to dioxin poisoning and disfigurement at the behest of Putin’s operatives.[7]

And no one should forget that Putin left the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing to launch his aggression against Georgia.  Then, he left the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and launched his aggression against Crimea and the rest of Ukraine.  Also, the world must never forget that in addition to downing Malaysia Airlines Flight 17—and killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board—Putin killed Alexander Litvinenko and countless others.[8]

Russia spans nine time zones and includes 160 ethnic groups that speak an estimated 100 languages.  It is by no means monolithic, and may crumble “overnight.”  Once Putin is gone, Russia may be dismembered—never to rise again—with China taking part (e.g., Siberia, which it covets) and the rest becoming independent states like the former Yugoslavia.  Between now and then, many may die because of Putin, unless he is terminated.

The Tragedy Of Joe Biden Is Clear For All To See

19 02 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

It is sad to watch Joe Biden speak.  After at least two brain operations, he fumbles along and has difficulty stringing two sentences together, as well as articulating a complete and coherent thought.[2]  He is not the man that I first encountered in the hearing room of the Senate Banking Committee in Washington, D.C.  He was a newly-minted U.S. Senator in the month that followed the death of his  first wife Neilia and their one-year-old daughter Naomi, who were killed in a tragic automobile accident while Christmas shopping in Delaware.[3]

Fast forward, and he is America’s President today, albeit having lost Afghanistan to the Taliban (and ISIS), leaving behind Americans and those who had helped us[4].  He is in the process of repeating that debacle in Ukraine.  Long ago, Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin sized up Biden correctly, and is in the process of walking all over him—and the United States, and the American people.  To Putin, Biden must represent “a gift from the gods,” and a buffoon, imbecile and pathetic loser.

Previously, I wrote the following about Biden and the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen’s magnificent work:

In the fable “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” two make-believe weavers purport to spin a fine suit of clothes for the emperor, which is made of beautiful material that possesses the wonderful quality of being invisible to any man who is unfit for his office or unpardonably stupid.  The potentate and his subjects acknowledge that the garments are very fine indeed.  That is, until one little child sees the emperor marching in a procession, and says at last: “But he has nothing on at all”—and the grand swindle is exposed for all to see.[5]

And I added:

Perhaps before the 2020 presidential campaign has run its course, one little child will express the belief that Joe Biden is “brain dead,” or certainly very close to it.  Lots of Democrats know this already, but are  too afraid (or ashamed) to acknowledge it publicly.[6]

I love my country deeply, and empathize with each and every American who has suffered in any way from China’s Coronavirus pandemic and the lockdowns.  It is as though that country’s leadership including Xi Jinping set about trying to destroy the United States, and dominate the world.  Each move is calculated; and Putin’s conquest of Ukraine is merely part of the plan to weaken and/or destroy us.[7]

Ever fearful of losing the Congressional elections in November, the Democrats are marshaling every means at their disposal to crucify Donald Trump, and shift the focus away from Biden’s staggering failures and colossal, mind-boggling ineptitude.  Lots of us began as Democrats but will never vote for one again.  More and more Americans feel this way; and the Democrats cannot camouflage the defeats in Afghanistan and Ukraine. The blood is on their hands, for the world to see.

Yes, Putin is a killer and pure evil[8], but the Democrats are evil too, which cannot be disguised or papered over[9].  Throw in Hunter Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and others of their ilk; and one has difficulty distinguishing between them.  Each of them kills, albeit some are more subtle than the others.

If the world could have stopped Hitler in his tracks, and prevented the Holocaust and so many other monumental human tragedies, would it have hesitated?  Knowing what we know today, is there any reason to hesitate now with respect to Putin? The question seems essentially rhetorical, because the answer is abundantly clear. Putin must be terminated; and there is no time to spare.

Lastly, are there any “half-way” measures that might work, such as cutting off Russia’s access to the SWIFT payments system, which would crush or cripple that country’s economy?  Biden seems too weak and pathetic to use such tools, perhaps because Putin has “dirt” on Biden and his son Hunter, which if disclosed might destroy them.
