We conservative and conservative libertarians are civilized souls. This means that we are at heart “free-speech absolutists.” In the words of Elon Musk, “For Twitter to deserve public trust, it must be politically neutral, which effectively means upsetting the far right and the far left equally.”

All nations now are expected to have found religion on Ukraine. As I pointed out at the start of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, from Covid submission, we the zombie subjects of the new, global order—for citizens we are not—were directed to shuffle along, shipshape, into a new compliance, this time over Ukraine.
Based on observing The Empire’s workings over decades, I’d hazard that President Volodymyr Zelensky is probably being fiercely guarded by Americans, possibly by a private, paramilitary security company. Something like Sean McFate’s DynCorp outfit, or Russia’s Wagner Group. Or even perhaps Ukraine’s own Einsatzgruppen, the Azov regiment.
The masses crave an opiate. Their political overlords know how to exploit the attendant and innate tendency for groupthink. As soon as the usefulness of one faith (Covid) expires; another takes its place (Ukraine), courtesy of the ruling elites, and with the complicity of the crowds.

For example, on Feb. 28, Sean Hannity proclaimed that a murdering thug of a leader who invades a sovereign country and kills innocent people needs to know that he will be forthrightly removed. Mark Esper, Trump’s defense secretary, concurred. “For the sake of what is decent in the world,” seconded Sen. Ben Cardin, a Democrat, Putin must be taken out.
As the eponymous title of our podcast promises, my partner David Vance and I dish out the “Hard Truth” about the emergency situation unraveling—or, is it wrapping up?—in Canada.
Fox News’ Martha MacCallum got only marginally steamed today at Robert Redfield, a former CDC director, according to whose euphemisms the CDC’s lies and lack of data-collection capability, priced at $7 billion per year, requires no more than a “strategic investment.”
February 12 is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Familiar Lincoln idolaters will gather to celebrate the birth, on Feb. 12, 1809, of the 16th President of the United States, and finesse his role in “the butchering business” — to use Prof. J. R. Pole’s turn-of-phrase.
As this column pointed out in 2014, “the struggle for Ukraine” is a chapter in a series of US orchestrated provocations, which began with the expansion of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) eastward to abut Russia’s borders—an expansion begun by President Clinton and pursued by Bush and Obama alike.
