Is there a saying that goes “don’t bring a Nerf gun to an artillery battle”? If not, there should be: President Obama said his administration will today impose a new round of sanctions on Russia, targeting an “expanded list of individuals and companies,” with particular focus on some high-tech defense exports. The president, speaking during […]
ABC News’ Jon Karl asked President Obama about Mitt Romney referring to Russia as America’s “number one geopolitical foe” in 2012, a claim that Team Obama mocked relentlessly. Obama, after some hem-hawing, basically tried to cover his administration’s naivety on Russia by upping the catastrophe ante: “So my response then continues to be what I […]
Ran across this a few days ago and it’s still cracking me up: So I guess if Romney is elected we can get ready for a new cold war with Russia. #justwhatweneed — Arianna Huffington (@ariannahuff) August 31, 2012 Self-assured liberals always know best. And this one’s self-explanatory: Congratulations to US President-elect Barack Obama http://t.co/wi0upVQB — […]

Under Russian control now, Crimea is already doing some old Soviet-style “for the common good” people relocating: Ukraine’s breakaway region of Crimea will ask Tatars to vacate part of the land where they now live in exchange for new territory elsewhere in the region, a top Crimean government official said Tuesday. Crimean Deputy Prime Minister […]
Self-assured liberal smugness from October 2012: Romney, who calls Russia our "No. 1 geopolitical foe," doesn't seem to realize it's the 21st century. #RomneyNotReady http://t.co/xcvhOAFS — The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) October 22, 2012 Hahaha! Yeah, that Romney was so misguided.
It’s voting day in Crimea, and people there who cast a ballot will vote to either A) Secede from Ukraine and re-join Russia, or B) Succeed and become an independent entity. An option to stay with Ukraine (status quo) isn’t even on the ballot. The U.S. and other European countries are considering the vote illegal […]
Via Drudge, The Sun give us tomorrow’s New York Post headlines today: Just no. Meanwhile, Obama is cracking down… on Israel.
Maybe he was busy presiding over another DNC happy hour. Via PJ Media: President Obama had no public events on his schedule today, yet skipped a meeting of his national security team at the White House today as they huddled over the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Seen leaving the meeting at the White House were […]
For some reason, this sounds awfully familiar: Putin lightly taunting The One no doubt: A Russian warship was docked in Havana Wednesday, without explanation from Communist Cuba or its state media. The Viktor Leonov CCB-175 boat, measuring 91.5 meters (300 feet) long and 14.5 meters wide, was docked at the port of Havana’s cruise ship […]
