My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes. – President Ronald Reagan
CNN.com reported yesterday that
US defense officials are calling recent sightings of Russian bombers off the Alaskan coast “nothing out of the ordinary” — itself an indication that both nations are toeing the line between routine military posturing and escalating provocation. On Monday, US F-22 fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers in international airspace 100 miles from Kodiak Island, Alaska. A US military official called the interaction “safe and professional.”
Less than 24 hours later, a US surveillance aircraft responded to two Russian bombers that were spotted in the same area, this time flying 41 miles off Alaska.
The Russian aircraft did not enter US airspace in either instance and US defense officials say there was nothing unusual or confrontational about the Russians’ conduct. The US itself has carried out similar flights along both the Chinese and Russian coasts.
Moscow, for its part, said it “regularly carries out patrol missions above the neutral waters of the Arctic, the Atlantic, the Black Sea and the Pacific Ocean.”
“All such missions are carried out in strict compliance with international regulations and with respect to national borders,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a written statement.
But this week’s encounter plays into a larger effort by Russian President Vladimir Putin “to prove Russia is back in the game,” according to Howard Stoffer, a former State Department staffer.
“This kind of cat-and-mouse stuff has been going on for a while now,” Stoffer told CNN, adding that Putin “is trying to put the US on notice that the Russians are everywhere and are back to expanding the limits of expanding their military power.”
The Viktor Leonov, a Russian spy ship, has also been spotted near the US coastline twice in recent months.
Rising tensions between US and Russia are a far cry from President Donald Trump’s optimistic campaign rhetoric of hopes for a collaborative relationship. As Trump himself said earlier this month, relations between the former Cold War foes “may be at an all-time low.”
The two nations have clashed over deeply rooted strategic differences this month.
Do you remember the great movie, “The Hunt for Red October”, starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin (before he became a total jerk and, in the process, unwatchable)?
Connery plays Captain Marko Ramius, a Russian Submarine Captain who commandeers The Red October, a nearly silent nuclear sub for the purpose of surrendering it to the United States. At on point, he gets on the com, and tells his unsuspecting crew:
“Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary, the American Navy. For forty years, your fathers before you and your older brothers played this game and played it well. But today the game is different. We have the advantage.”
The Administration is right. What is happening off the coast of Alaska is a dangerous game, which has been going on for quite a while.
Speaking of dangerous games…is it just me, or have y’all noticed that the Modern American Liberal Propaganda Machine has backed off of the erroneous claim that the Russians were somehow, someway, responsible for the loss of Hillary Clinton to Donald J. Trump on November 8th, 2016?
The strategy of that whole campaign by the Democrats and their operatives in both the Main Stream Media and the Social Media, ironically enough, sprang from the philosophy of the Third Reich’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, who infamously said that
If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it.
If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.
If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth.
This strategy was ironic because one of the ignorant attacks, which is still being put out there by Liberals, equates Trump to Adolf Hitler, the Leader of Germany’s Third Reich.
It’s not surprising that Liberals continue to fail.
Liberals underestimate the American People.
The Trump/Russian Collusion Story has fallen on deaf ears.
- Did the Democrats actually expect average Americans to believe that the 63 million of us who voted for Donald J., Trump were somehow made to do so by the Russians?
- Trump carried 31 out of 50 states. Those weren’t Russians out there voting in America’s Heartland.
- Average Americans, disgusted with the bias of the Main Stream Media, used the Social Media to spread the truth about the Democrats and their Presidential Candidate. I didn’t see any Russians showing their cat videos or influencing Americans as to how to vote on Facebook.
- It wasn’t a Russian who called us all “Deplorables”. It was the “The Queen of Mean”, Hillary Clinton herself.
And, my final and most important bullet point…
- Average Americans, from the Rust Belt to the Bible Belt, were familiar with Mrs. Clinton. They knew who she was and what she was. They knew that she would walk 20 miles across the scorching desert sand to tell a lie rather than step across on of Obama’s infamous Red Lines and tell the truth. Hillary has no one to blame but herself for losing the Presidency to Donald J. Trump.
Our Founding Fathers envisioned a Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.
Donald J. Trump is a prime example of this.
What Obama, Clinton, Schumer, and all of the Liberals out there still crying in their Pepsi Product of choice over watching the machinations of a Constitutional Republic in action do not want to admit, is that the Electoral Collage was put in place to prevent what they are still trying to accomplish by any means necessary: overthrowing an election in which Americans who living in the Heartland of our nation defeated a Presidential Candidate running on the favored Political Ideology of isolated Metropolitan Areas with dense populations.
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.
All these displaced tyrants are accomplishing with their unsubstantiated claims against President Trump, their outlandish political machinations, and their overwhelming hypocrisy is to make average Americans, who rejected their political ideology en masse on November 8th, even madder at them, if that is possible.
The lesson which they should have learned through their defeat on November 8th is not to underestimate the American People.
You can not buy average Americans voters nor our respect.
They are not for sale.
It is time for the Leaders and MSM Minions of the Democratic Party to suck it up and move on.
Americans have had enough of their National Temper Tantrum and boundless hypocrisy.
In the cat and mouse game which they have been playing with the American People, they have now become the mouse.
Until He Comes,
