MSNBC Admiral: Putin's Conscripts Are Like NYC Bartenders
On Morning Joe, retired Admiral James Stavridis, commenting on Putin's chaotic call-up of 300,000 conscripts, came up with a truly strange metaphor, saying: "This is like pulling a bunch of bartenders off of Fifth Avenue, and sending them out to the front lines. It's not going to work."
Transgender Media Hero Indicted for Plotting to Give Secrets to Russia

Bad Joke: Fallon Asks Hillary Clinton About Document Security

The Noose Tightens on Putin’s Ruinous Reign
WASHINGTON -- Back in the days when George H.W. Bush resided in the White House, he told me rather cryptically that I would be getting an invitation to the White House. A few days later I had luncheon with his head of the CIA, Bob Gates, one of the brightest lights that I have ever known in government. Bob wasted no time getting down to business. He told me of his concern that the Russians,…
President Vladimir Putin on Horseback
WASHINGTON -- We have not seen the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, riding around the Russian countryside on horseback and shirtless lately, have we? In fact, much of the time, he is photographed seated at the end of a very long table in the Kremlin, and he appears to be almost alone. Though it is possible that the guys seated furtively way at the end of his table could be members of his…
Volunteers Are Saving Lives in Ukraine
When Russia attacked Ukraine, “experts” said the country would fall within days. It hasn't. One reason is that the Russian military wasn't as effective as people thought. Another is that Ukrainians surprised the world by courageously defending their country. A third reason is that volunteers from everywhere stepped in to help.
Buzzword Foreign Policy Makes for Failure
This week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went to Taiwan, determined to make a statement about American support for the democratic country under constant threat from its tyrannical Chinese neighbor. That trip prompted spasms of apoplexy from the Chinese government, which vowed serious consequences; China, in the end, engaged mainly in some military posturing. There is no question that Pelosi…
LAME: AP Journo Lobs Softballs at Biden in First Major Print Sit-Down
With little in terms of public condemnations from the liberal media, President Biden went over a year in office without having sat for a major print interview with a reporter (not a columnist) before it came to an end Thursday with the Associated Press’s Josh Boak. His questions were the epitome of softballs, inviting Biden to explain his thinking during “a really unique time in American…
Curtains Down! Here’s Some of the Top Moments From The Psaki Show
Friday marked the end of an era with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki departing the Biden administration after over 200 editions of The Psaki Show, filled with humorous and tense moments. Simply put, Psaki was effective in having served as the chief spin officer and lying propagandist for President Biden amid a litany of crises as he himself has spent much of his presidency hiding from…
Jacqui Heinrich Tests Jen Psaki on DHS’s Shady ‘Disinformation Board’
On Thursday and Friday’s editions of The Psaki Show, Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich repeatedly took the outgoing White House press secretary to task over the appointment of Nina Jankowicz, a far-left Resistance fiend to run what many have deemed a real-life Ministry of Truth out of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The Certitude of Ineptitude
I really am flummoxed by the ineptitude of President Joe Biden and his chief of staff, Ron Klain. Biden has been a Washington politician for half a century, including eight years as vice president and before that a senior senator. Klain is a consummate Washington insider, having worked for Janet Reno, Al Gore, Biden and others. How are they this inept? Last summer, the border got swamped with…
Ooof: WH Reporters Body Psaki Over Biden’s ‘Genocide’ Line, Inflation
Hump Day marked a tough day for Jen Psaki as she reportedly careens toward the series finale of The Psaki Show as the White House press secretary faced tough questions on inflation and another off-the-cuff remark from President Biden about Russia’s unprovoked war against Ukraine, including one that questioned whether there needs to be “an asterisk next to anything that the President says.”
Morning Joe: Obama Failure on Syria Red Line Could Bite Us in Ukraine
On Morning Joe, Obama's former National Security Council specialist on Syria says that Obama's "infamous" failure to enforce his redline on the use of chemical weapons in Syria could bite us in Ukraine, because Putin doesn't believe there would be any repercussions for his use of chemical weapons.
MSNBC's Cross Sees Racist Immigration Policy Favoring White Ukrainians
Remind us: who is Biden's border czar? We seem to remember that it's Kamala Harris--even if, after more than a year in office, she hasn't actually made it to the border. But there was Tiffany Cross on her MSNBC show this morning, in effect accusing Biden-Harris of a racist, "double-standard," immigration policy favoring white Ukrainians over asylum seekers from Central America and Africa…
