Does president Trump need more losses to confirm what’s painfully obvious? 

Under Bush II and Obama the map of the world changed for the worse as Russia and Putin beat the hell out of America in Ukraine especially by taking the entire territory of the Crimea and no one cared enough to physically oppose it. No one.

The Ukrainian government filed paperwork against Russia in the International Court of Justice, the United Nations’ highest court, to fine Russia for “intervening militarily in Ukraine, financing acts of terrorism, and violating the human rights of millions of Ukraine’s citizens.”

Ukraine is still seeking compensation for deadly Russia inspired incidents including the 2014 shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine. An international criminal probe concluded last year that the missile that destroyed the Malaysian passenger jet over Ukraine in 2014 and killed all 298 people aboard was fired from rebel-controlled territory by a mobile Russian launcher trucked in from Russia and hastily returned to Russia.

America has taken steps to thwart more aggression by Putin. Obama refused to put missiles in Poland. Trump did that. He sold a $10.5 billion Patriot anti-missile system to Poland. The Eastern European NATO states have been ramping up their military capabilities in the face of Putin and Russia’s aggression.

VILNIUS (Reuters) – Lithuania wants the United States to bring more defence systems such as long-range Patriot and short-range Avenger missiles to the Baltics where some fear Russia is more powerful in the air.

The Kremlin then sent advanced Iskander missiles to its Kaliningrad exclave on the Baltic Sea, within striking distance of large swathes of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia — all members of Nato.

The expulsion of over 100 Russian diplomats by 24 nations, including the U.S. and Poland, was taken in response to the recent nerve-agent attack by Putin/Russia in the U.K.

Under Poland’s largest-ever weapons purchase, American Patriot producer Raytheon Co. will start deliveries of rockets and communication systems in 2022.

Last year Trump held military drills in Siauliai, Lithuania, . . . an encouraging sign. . 

Ukraine knows about and accused Russia of financing separatist rebels in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions as well as sending Russian troops there. The Kremlin has denied the accusations although President Vladimir Putin said in October Russia “had to defend Ukraine’s Russian-speaking population.”

President Trump should shake Putin’s hand and throw him to the floor to show the free world what should be done to Putin, a violent aggressor.

“Kavanaugh could provide the fifth vote to overturn the  40-year-old experiment with Affirmative Action that uses racial preferences to promote some kind of nebulous diversity.”

Here’s hoping.
Ilya Shaprio, the Cato Institute’s senior fellow in constitutional studies, Kavanaugh disagrees with libertarians on national security. But on just about every other issue, Kavanaugh would likely advance liberty.

Shapiro notes that Kavanaugh is one of the best judges in the country at opposing government regulation on individuals and companies. As a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Kavanaugh tried to strike down lots of regulations: net neutrality, EPA admissions rules, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He didn’t always succeed, but he argued that they were all bureaucratic overreaches.

Shapiro tells Stossel that Kavanaugh would also likely overturn Kelo v. City of New London, the eminent domain decision that upheld the right of governments to take private property for nearly any reason.

Kavanaugh is also good on gun rights. Citing the Second Amendment, he tried to overturn a D.C. ban on all semi-automatic rifles.

Should libertarians be happy with Kavanaugh overall, Stossel asks? “Definitely,” Shapiro says. “He’s not going to agree with us all the time, certainly. But no judges or justices do.”

Nike is using Kaepernick to sell overpriced shoes to the sort of virtue signaling thirty-something suburbanites who decorate their barren front yards with placards reading, “In This House Black Lives Matter and We Believe in Science.”


Nike’s latest romance is with Kaepernick, an America-hating racist who wears socks that show POLICE OFFICERS as PIGS.

President Donald Trump pointed to the devastating effect on Nike after the sports brand endorsed Colin Kaepernick’s protests against law enforcement.

“Just like the NFL, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts,” Trump wrote. “I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way?”

Nike stock fell 3 percent on Tuesday after announcing their campaign with Kaepernick over Labor Day weekend.

Trump said that Nike was sending a “terrible message” to its customers but acknowledged that they were also a tenant of his building in New York City.

Trump also weighed in on the ongoing NFL struggle over whether athletes should be allowed to kneel during the national anthem.

“As far as the NFL is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!” he wrote..

Owning Nike shoes used to signal pretentions to fitness, now it’s meant to signal pretensions to activism. Everyone can’t change the world But anyone can buy two hundred dollar shoes assembled by teenage girls on the verge of passing out in hundred degree heat to show off their commitment to social justice.

And what better spokesman for that fake farce could there be than Colin Kaepernick?
