Resurfaced Video Shows John McCain Accusing Rand Paul Of ‘Working For Vladimir Putin’

On Thursday, a $39.8 billion package of aid for Ukraine was blocked in the U.S. Senate by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

Why did Paul block the bill? Well, here’s what he offered as his explanation:

The senator faced backlash over his opposition but said he stands by his decision. “My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation,” Paul tweeted Thursday evening, repeating his remarks on the Senate floor. While he said he sympathizes with the Ukrainian people, Paul added that the United States “cannot continue to spend money we don’t have” because doing so is “threatening our own national security.”

The fact that Paul is the only U.S. senator to take such a ridiculous stance at a time when Ukraine is beating back Russian troops led to a deep dive into the video vault and the resurfacing of a clip of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) accusing Paul of “working for Vladimir Putin” in 2017, according to Newsweek:

“So I repeat again – the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin,” the late senator said in the short video.

In the clip, McCain was discussing NATO membership for the Balkan nation of Montenegro. Paul had blocked a vote to ratify a treaty that would have allowed Montenegro to join the U.S.-led military alliance by refusing to agree to unanimous consent.

That led Paul to fire back at McCain a day later:

 “You know, I think he makes a really, really strong case for term limits. I think maybe he’s past his prime; I think maybe he’s gotten a little bit unhinged.”

Five years later, Rand Paul is still Putin’s favorite senator, and his grandstanding could well result in the deaths of more people in the besieged nation of Ukraine. The Kentucky Republican needs to get his head out of his ass and support our Ukrainian allies.

Hannity Urges Trump To Denounce Putin – Failed POTUS Rants About NATO Instead

Failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump was asked by Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday evening during a phone interview if he thought Russian mass murderer Vladimir Putin was evil.

Rather than denounce Putin, Trump attacked the NATO alliance.

Hannity asked the ex-president:

“I asked you the last time you were on, whether you think that this is evil in our time. Do you believe this is evil in our time?”

Trump replied:

“I think in 100 years people are gonna look back and they’re gonna say, how did we stand back and NATO stand back, which in many ways I’ve called the paper tiger.

“Don’t forget, I rebuilt NATO because when I became president, the first thing I noticed when I went there to the first meeting, was that most of the countries were not paying, or were paying far less than they were supposed to. There were only eight out of 28 countries that were paid in full.”

As images of dead bodies buried in mass graves were shown on the screen, Trump also bragged about what good friends he is with the Russian dictator:

“I knew Putin very well. Almost as well as I know you, Sean. I will tell you, we talked about it, we talked about it a lot, he did want Ukraine, but I said, ‘You’re not going into Ukraine.’ He would never, ever have gone into Ukraine.”

Based on what he said Wednesday and has said in the past, it’s painfully clear that if Trump runs in 2024 and wins, Putin will have a green light to invade any country he wants while the United States stands by and watches without responding.

Trump Supporter Says She’d Rather Have Putin As POTUS Than Biden 

It’s basically a given that to be a supporter of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, you have to be gullible and willing to believe whatever bullshit you hear on right-wing television and radio.

But can you imagine being so perpetually demented that you would rather have a mass murdering butcher like Vladimir Putin running the United States than President Joe Biden?

Yet that’s exactly what a MAGA moron had to say when she spoke with a reporter outside last Saturday’s Trump rally in Michigan, according to Crooks & Liars:

A Donald Trump supporter has attempted to explain why she would vote for Vladimir Putin over Joe Biden, and her response is… interesting?

In a newly-surfaced video, a woman wearing a bobbled Trump beanie was interviewed by Jason Selvig – one half of comedy duo The Good Liars.

After being asked exactly why a political figure recently accused of war crimes would get her vote over Biden, she replied: “I believe he’s been given a tough….”

Trailing off before completing her sentence, she then insisted Nazis actually left Germany after WWII and made their way to America following a pit-stop in Ukraine.

But that’s not all the simpleton had to say. She also believes that George Bush (who fought the Nazis in World War II as a decorated Navy pilot) was actually a Nazi himself!

“Since WWII, Russia’s been the bad guy, when in actuality the Nazis left Germany and they ended up going to Ukraine, coming in here.”

She then added: “George Bush was actually a Nazi.”

The group that shot the video and posted it online is indeed known as The Good Liars, but they aren’t lying when it comes to finding some of the dense dolts who associate themselves with Trump like pathetic, fascist groupies.

But perhaps most terrifying of all is that we still let these ditzes cast a ballot in every election. Is is any wonder that Trump and his ilk (Gaetz, Greene, Boebert, etc.) are able to get elected to positions of power?

Willful ignorance will be the death of the American republic.

Veterans Group Shreds Tucker Carlson For Minimizing The War Crimes Committed By Putin

Ever since Russia invaded Ukraine, Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been making excuses for the brutal actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, remarking on February 21:

“So, today we sent another letter to Vladimir Putin asking for an interview. We hope we get it. We also sent a message to the President of Ukraine. We would like that interview too. Neither one of these men runs a democracy. By traditional American standards, both of them are tyrants.”

Both of them are tyrants? Did President Zelensky invade Russia or any of his neighbors? No, he didn’t. Did Putin? Yes.

Carlson also had this to say about the Russian mass murderer:

“Why do Democrats want you to hate Putin? Has Putin shipped every middle class job in your town to Russia? Did he manufacture a worldwide pandemic that wrecked your business? Is he teaching your kids to embrace racial discrimination? Is he making fentanyl? Does he eat dogs? These are fair questions and the answer to all of them is no… It may be worth asking yourself… why do I hate Putin?”

Such comments have led VoteVets to release a video showing images of the war crimes being committed by Russian troops operating under the direct orders of Putin, including the killing of innocent civilians.

Mass graves have recently been discovered in the Ukrainian town of Bucha, with women and children executed at close range with their hands tied behind their backs. They were slaughtered by Russian forces loyal to Putin. If that’s not a war crime, then no such thing exists.

Tucker Carlson and others at Fox deserve to be reminded of their disgusting support for a man who thinks nothing of bombing a maternity hospital or shelling a theater where children are being sheltered.

Be sure and share this video with Carlson on his Twitter account. Maybe having to see these images thousands of times will remind him what a scumbag he is:

Trump Calls On Vladimir  Putin To ‘Release’ Any Dirt He Might Have On Biden

On July 27, 2016, Donald Trump held a press conference in Florida and urged Russia to commit a criminal act against this Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton:

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

As a result of that and other issues connected to Russia and Ukraine, Trump was impeached.

And yet the failed, one-term former president is once again urging Russia to release any dirt they might have on the current President of the United States, Joe Biden.

Mediaite reports that Trump made his remarks in an interview with John Solomon:

In an interview with Just the News founder John Solomon published on Tuesday, Trump reiterated his unproven claim that Yelena Baturina, a Russian oligarch and the wife of former Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov, gave $3.5 million to a business that Hunter Biden, a son of Joe Biden, helped found.

“She gave him $3.5 million so now I would think Putin would know the answer to that. I think he should release it. I think we should know that answer.

“How is it that the mayor of Moscow, his wife gave the Biden family three and a half million dollars? I think Putin now would be willing to probably give that answer. I’m sure he knows.”

The twice-impeached loser also claimed that he had strengthened the NATO alliance:

“I’m the best thing that ever happened to NATO, because I made them pay. So NATO has plenty of money now.”

At least Trump is consistent when it comes to some matters. He’s always been a traitor and he still is.
