Zelensky threatens Rand Paul, Tulsi Gabbard, Glenn Greenwald

T-shirt tyrant takes $US60 billion, then issues fatwa against congressmen and journalists

War proponents in the West and other functionaries of Western security agencies have used the same tactics for decades to demonize anyone questioning the foreign policy of the US and NATO. Chief among them, going back to the start of the Cold War, is accusing dissidents of spreading ‘Russian propaganda’ or otherwise serving the Kremlin. That’s all this is from the Ukrainians: just standard McCarthyite idiocy.”

    But he is winning so well why would he need to do this? /sarc

  2. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Has to keep the Left sweet because the EU and Biden are getting bored with the war. Hence the SSM thing yesterday.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky considers legalising same-sex marriage (4 Aug)

    Massively important to winning the war! Actually it is, since he needs weapons and ammo and the only people he can obtain them from are green-progs.

    “Although there is a war on, we have to get our priorities right.”
    Very Churchillian.
    Not.

  4. False Equivalence says:

    I wonder why Rand Paul in the US Senate voted ‘present” when the vote was 95-1-1 on NATO membership for Sweden and Finland? Josh Hawley voted no. EVERY other Senator voted yes.
    Quislings?

  5. Not Trampis says:

    Those trio make up a very wacky lot.

  6. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Hawley said why he voted no, and I think he has a point given how gormless the Europeans are on defence.

    Hawley took the Senate floor to call European security alliances a distraction from what he called the United States’ chief rival — China, not Russia. … Hawley’s contention a bigger NATO would mean more obligations for the U.S. military, the world’s largest.

    On the other hand Sweden and Finland are actually serious about defence, so they’ll end up carrying the rest of NATO, aside from the US of course.

  7. C.L. says:

    I wonder why Rand Paul in the US Senate voted ‘present” when the vote was 95-1-1 on NATO membership for Sweden and Finland? Josh Hawley voted no. EVERY other Senator voted yes.

    Because Paul knows Sweden and Finland just pulled off the con of the century, outsourcing their defence spending to America and freeing up their budgets for other things. You only get one Joe Biden in a lifetime.

  8. Not Trampis says:

    no questioning CL for being a Russian apologist.

    Never a thought from either country of joining NATO until Putin lied again and invaded ukraine. How can they outsource when they have already being spending up you fool.

    given hoe embarrassing russia has been in Ukraine they can be very confident if Putin attempted to invade their countries the Russian forces would be easily repelled.

    Stick to Australian politics, your understanding of military strategy and tactics is below pre-school level.

  10. C.L. says:

    Rand Paul is an MD and eye surgeon, Gabbard is a Combat Medical Badge winner and Greenwald won a Pulitzer.

    Volodymyr Zelensky is literally a clown.

  11. False Equivalence says:

    95-1-1. Quislings.

  12. C.L. says:

    While I’m personally touched by the left’s imitation of Catholic hero Joseph McCarthy, I regret to inform them that the great man wouldn’t be questioning Rand Paul in 2022. He’d be hammering Hillary Clinton for colluding with the FSB and General Milley for spying on the Oval Office for the PLA.

  13. Passing By says:

    CL: nice little McCarthy line there. Did you know that trumps mentor was both a McCarthy lawyer stooge and a mafia lawyer? Not to mention a massive hypocrite in his closet.
    I don’t see anyone responding to the actual senate vote which kinda lays Paul and Hawley out in the sunlight?
    Truly hilarious that Paul would argue that he wanted to vote on something else (China) at a time when the Dems are rather recklessly tossing rocks thru Chinese windows?
    Right now we are all stocking up on snacks as Trump leaks news that DoJ is getting ready to charge him. While Murdoch and others have out the barge poles.

  14. C.L. says:

    I don’t see anyone responding to the actual senate vote which kinda lays Paul and Hawley out in the sunlight?

    Have you read Paul’s objections?
    He wanted accountability measures strictly established for the money given to Ukraine. His pleas were ignored. Subsequently, the mainstream press reported that nobody knew where some weapons were ending up. Additionally, as the Panama Papers affair proved, Ukraine was the worst offshore money-launderer in the world.

    Zelensky was named in those documents, by the way.

  15. Lee says:

    But you didn’t get the message, C.L.; Zelensky can do no wrong, and you’re a Putin lover if you suggest otherwise.

  16. Passing By says:

    Lee: that’s one, slightly paranoid view. The other is that Paul and Hawley are a very long way removed from an unusual consensus of the Senate. The reasonable question is why?

  17. Passing By says:

    CL. You don’t seriously think Ukraine is not using every weapon it can get its hands on? The observation itself is so stupid it’s doubtful that Putins goons briefed it. Paul is looking about as snarky as Gordon Liddy.

  18. C.L. says:

    Come on, PB. You know very well the Pauls Rand and Ron have been isolationists of the old American kind since forever.

  19. Passing By says:

    CL: the old American kind were never tools of Russia. Just look again at that senate vote.

  20. Boambee John says:

    Poor old Passer By is desperate for attention. Does he know of the Robert Kennedy connection to Joe McCarthy? Probably not, can’t cast a shadow on the sainted JFK and RFK.

  21. Passing By says:

    BJ: jfk was a very poor president who died unfortunately. Robert as AG did some good things. But neither is in my book a standout in the US political stakes. Unlike, say, teddy Roosevelt. Or FDR. Or LBJ. Or Nixon.
    I can’t imagine why you elevate Kennedys.

  22. False Equivalence says:

    I see while I was away we got into McCarthy. Excellent!
    Can I draw your attention to 95-1-1? Thus Hawley and Paul are alone in not voting for NATO membership to the Scandis. Does this make them Putinists? Who knows. But it remains extremely hard to figure why they would do so.
    Aside from the pathetic Paul, I am drawn to the pathetic Putin. Who is looking like a total and complete fool. I suspect he is now having to figure out whether he tries the Idi Amin escape (in his case Iran) or sells Russia to the Koch brothers as an imperial estate.

  23. Lee says:

    Does he know of the Robert Kennedy connection to Joe McCarthy? Probably not, can’t cast a shadow on the sainted JFK and RFK.

    Besides Robert Kennedy working as one of McCarthy’s assistants, the latter and JFK were also on speaking terms.

  24. Boambee John says:

    P B

    I can’t imagine why you elevate Kennedys.

    I don’t, but a high proportion of people who hate Joe McC, seem to have a long-standing love affair with the memory of the Kennedys, and are not keen to hear of the connection.

    PS, FDR probably caused the depression to be longer than necessary in the US,LBJ was as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

  25. Boambee John says:

    Falsies

    Step away from the bong.

  26. Passing By says:

    Boambee: I am thinking you hilarious. LBJ a crook. Ok. Yet before us we have the sleaziest example in Trump – a grub and shyster of first order yet you would kiss his arse. Or would if you could. So funny. I see why sone of you here like Trump and Putin as they’re so similar in vulgarity. Tribalism so banal. Yet funny.

  27. Boambee John says:

    Passing Wind

    Trump faced investigation by the world media, the US media, the DemonRat Party, the FBI, the IRS, Uncle Tom Conley’s and all. They couldn’t make anything stick.

    As for arse kissing, I’ll leave that to lefties, Monkey Pox Isn’t my scene. And I’ll leave the vulgarity to you.

  28. Boambee John says:

    Cobley’s and all

  29. Not Trampis says:

    Oh dear the depression was prolonged in the USA because of the austerity budget of 1936. Previously the USA had an average GDP growth rate of around 10%. If properly measured unemployment got to single digits. They would have got to full employment if they adopted a policy of real wage reductions.

    Still like an answer from the russian apologists on why russia is pleading with Iran for getting some drone knock offs if the russian economy is going gangbusters.

  30. Boambee John says:

    Non Mentis

    Good to see that you agree that FDR prolonged the depression in the US.

  31. Not Trampis says:

    That is what occurs when you use classical economic theory. If he had rejected it the recession in a depression would have never occurred.
    Germany was the only country to reach full employment.

  32. Boambee John says:

    Non Mentis

    Germany was the only country to reach full employment.

    By conscripting a couple of million men and increasing arms production.

  33. Passing By says:

    BJ: so trump is not a serial bankrupt who has left many lenders and investors high and dry? He’s not the guy who raised 250million usd after losing an election – another rip? He didn’t say he grabs women’s pussy whenever he can? Etc etc etc????

  34. Boambee John says:

    Passing Wind

    He didn’t say he grabs women’s pussy whenever he can?

    In a sports locker room, he commented that if you are wealthy, “They let (note this word) you grab their pussy”. I’m pretty sure that Bill Clinton was rather more – forthright – if not aggressive in his approach.

    It was a comment on the approach some (but not all) women take to wealthy men. Perhaps you should climb out of your basement and learn about the real world. Power and wealth, to some women, are aphrodisiacs.

    As for the business failures, he’s not on his Pat Malone there. That’s why there are bankruptcy laws, to manage such events. Are you suggesting that Trump was the first person ever to use those laws?

    Incidentally, did you see that Shrillary’s 2016 campaign funds have finally all been spent? I wonder what on since the 2016 election was a long time ago now? Another rip?

  35. Passing By says:

    BJ: you know some strange women.

  36. Boambee John says:

    Passing Wind

    No, I don’t. I am not wealthy, but it is possible to observe human nature from the outside. You should try some time.

  37. Jannie says:

    TDS stays in their brains a long time Boambee. Not much left.
