It’s machine on machine crime as Iran shoots down an American drone and we respond with…

Yeah still waiting on that response from our fearless emperor, or President Trump if you like. AT the last second Trump pulled back claiming he didn’t want to kill that many Iranians. We sympathize but probably info you should have considered before you had F-18s locked and loaded for take off.

We discuss. Click below toy hear our masterful take.

UF/UF 110: Enter the Dumber-dome

I was about to say “The long awaited Democratic debate has arrived.” The problem? I don’t think anyone really gave a rats behind about it. I know I wasn’t all that keyed up for it. But hey I work here so I live tweeted the thing and then we podcasted about it.

Try not to be overwhelmed with the big build up there. But if this week’s Dem Debate is what that party has to offer then I’m pretty sure the democratic party is in deep trouble. Which is funny cause the talk for months has been about the demise of the republican party over their lack of leadership and ginormous presidential field. But these five Dem goofballs, criminals, hangers-on, and avowed socialists may be spelling the end of the Democratic party as we currently know it.

Anyway click and hear what we have to say about it. It’s pure genius. Trust me, I’m from the government, I’m here to help.

A bear in a cage is still a bear (or, Crimea river)

russian bearI have no doubt that being the President of the United States is a hard job. I also believe that running for president and being the president are very different tasks. In Obama’s case, he is very good at running for president. But, again, being the president is a very different thing. For one thing, being the president is so unique. There simply aren’t that many of them. And, I believe, there are things about being the president that you won’t know, and simply can’t know, until you are the president.

Foreign policy is an area I can imagine that this is true. It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that once you get elected president, you start finding things out that, had you known them before, may have made you feel very different about your predecessor, or may have made you realize that things you were campaigning on weren’t very realistic in the first place. Things like “foreign policy will change under my administration.” I’m sure Obama’s not the first to learn this.

So the Ukraine is in a meltdown. To be clear, the whole thing is quite unclear.

In a recording that’s been leaked between assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt, ambassador to Ukraine, while discussing the Ukrainian situation, Nuland says “Fuck the EU.” (I guess they thought they were exempt from everything being recorded?) The recording is linked below. While the conversation received press because of her use of the F word towards the EU, the conversation’s value really lies elsewhere. The topic of the call is who they intend to support coming to power in the Ukraine. If anything good could be said to come out of the Snowden incident, it should be that we can certainly say we don’t know what’s going on in our government, and we don’t know what they’re doing.

In spite of the administration’s stance, the point is, we’re very involved. The point is, we’ve been involved. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, eh?

We, the American citizen, have no real way to understand who the good guys and the bad guys are. Remember, the deposed president, Viktor Yanukovych, was democratically elected. He is, however, a bad guy. When you fire on your own people, you’re a bad guy. There are some real bad people on the other side as well. Regardless of who we, the United States, decides to support, our track record on supporting good guys isn’t that good. We supported a lot of good guys who turn into bad guys.

Part of the reason we have no way to figure it out is the sorry state of our media today. We’re not going to get any decent investigative reporting on the situation. What we’ll get will be packaged for what we like. We’ll get packaged news. Once the politicians determine who we’re for or against, (and they already have) then that’s what we’ll get.  So, if you’re just reading straight American media, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, Fox, you’re not going to get the whole story. You’re getting packaged American news.  Make no mistake, there are some very bad guys on both sides of this situation.

Let’s talk about the Russians for a second. If the Russians were mucking about in, let’s say Mexico, or Panama, or, let’s say Cuba, how do you think we’d take that? Probably not very well. Make no mistake, Putin’s a bad guy. But we haven’t hesitated to back him in a corner since the end of the cold war.

American foreign policy hasn’t really changed in about 50 years. However, the execution of the policy is a different story. The current administration seems to not only be bad at it, and in the case of Benghazi, unable to read the current tides, but then lie about things when they go bad.

Biden, in case you’ve forgotten, repeatedly ripped Obama on his knowledge of foreign policy when they were both running for president. Yea, you could overlook it as campaign talk if you want. Robert Gates in his book “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War” is not particularly complimentary to Biden on foreign policy, nor is he complimentary of Obama towards the military leadership. Obama, among other things, has said “there will be consequences” if Ukraine “crosses the line” with the protestors. He’s also said “The United States will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine,” At this point I believe that is simply rhetoric.  I hope it is.

I know our own country has been willing to engage in military action we have felt necessary. Not everyone in the Ukraine is unhappy about the Russians being there. It’s a diverse country separated by culture, religion, geography, ethnicity, you name it. So now we’re calling Russia’s actions “an invasion” because they’re the bad guys.

Sergiy Aksyonov, the leader of the autonomous Crimean region, last week issued the statement “I call on the president of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, to provide assistance in securing peace.”

I don’t know anything about foreign policy. I’d like to leave it to smart people, I just don’t know who they are. If you want to learn about what’s going on in the Ukraine, you can’t just stick to American news outlets. That’s a shame, but I believe it.

If you want to listen to something interesting, click on the “Democracy Now” link below and listen to the interview with Stephen Cohen.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk, an opposition leader, concluded an interview last week by saying “Ukraine is in a big mess.” Yes. A mess Indeed.

CVS for your health

The big time pharmacy/convenience store announced it will no longer sell tobacco products of any kind. I get the sentiment, but I’m worried about the precident. How long until they stop carrying the Sham Wow is what I want to know.

The Sochi Blues

What? A country that spent all its’s money on military and space programs & both programs went bankrupt, can’t get the infrastructure necessary to make ready for the Winter Olympiad? Do tell! To be blunt (haha) Sochi has been described as everything from a summer resort to a poor man’s Harlem.

Chris – say it isn’t so! 

Well it may not be so. Christie accusers are coming out of the woodwork claiming to have all kinds of evidence about bridgegate. Small problem, none of them can produce any of it. The Port Authority director taking all the heat, pic far left, claims to have big Chris dead to rights but won’t hand over evidence. Stop blowing smoke people.

Big Top Jay

Big Top Jay

And a little Carney shall lead them…

The circus is in full swing at the White House. After putting out enrollment figures for Obamacare, Major Garret questions Carney about validity. Carney replies, “I never said that.” Garret reads Carney’s exact words from a press conference not days before. Methinks Jay has lost control of the Big Top.

 

I WILL BREAK YOU!

I WILL BREAK YOU!

Do you know who I am!

NY Congressman Michael Grimm (R) does a live TV interview at the conclusion of the State of the Union speech. Grimm gets upset. Grimm threatens to “break the reporter in half like a little boy” and “toss him over the railing” of the 2nd floor in the capital building. All this on live TV. Awesome. He later goes on Fox (of course) to say he lost his composure. Really? REALLY?

State of the State of the Union

It’s bad folks. I mean it’s really bad. The State of the Union speech has become a joke. First of all there is no requirement for the Pres to give a speech. It can just be submitted in writing. President Woodrow Wilson brought us the permanent speech giving. Jefferson had refused to do it during his two terms. We need to take Tom’s cue. It’s a complete farce.
