    UN Security Council: Ukraine Resolution


    The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting on Ukraine. Russia, one of five permanent members of the Security Council, vetoed a resolution that reaffirms Ukraine’s sovereignty & declares Sunday’s referendum on Crimea’s future illegitimate.

    The serial complainers in the MSM are getting some deserved pushback:

      I liked that article, primarily because it confirms what an idiot O’Reily is. Thanks

      And as they are no longer the “Party of Lincoln”, how in heck would they know what Lincoln would do!? What a bunch of lazy posers.

    Prescient. From de Tocqueville:

    There are now two great nations in the world which, starting from different points, seem to be advancing toward the same goal: the Russians and the Anglo-Americans. Both have grown in obscurity, and while the world’s attention was occupied elsewhere, they have suddenly taken their place among the leading nations, making the world take note of their birth and of their greatness almost at the same instant. All other peoples seem to have nearly reached their natural limits and to need nothing but to preserve them; but these two are growing…. The American fights against natural obstacles; the Russian is at grips with men. The former combats the wilderness and barbarism; the latter, civilization with all its arms. America’s conquests are made with the plowshare, Russia’s with the sword. To attain their aims, the former relies on personal interest and gives free scope to the unguided strength and common sense of individuals. The latter in a sense concentrates the whole power of society in one man. One has freedom as the principal means of action; the other has servitude. Their point of departure is different and their paths diverse; nevertheless, each seems called by some secret desire of Providence one day to hold in its hands the destinies of half the world.

      Ah yes, LL, quite prescient indeed.

      And, today, the only necessary modification would be:

      “…. one day to hold in its hands the destinies of half the world.”


      “…. one day to hold in its hands the destinies of the entire world.”

      Nuclear winter being outside the scope of anyone’s imagination at the time de Tocqueville published ‘Democracy in America’ in 1835.

      Thanks for the tweet, hf2.

      I had to chuckle a bit at Steve. Like duh, dude … they’ve likely been meeting around the clock for the past 2+ weeks and I suspect they’ll be nothing else through the weekend. Only questions are when will the President address the Nation/World, and from which WH venue will he speak. I suspect it will be sometime Sunday afternoon, early evening EDT unless in the next several hours Ukraine is forced to fight the invading Russians.

        problem is that many still believe the anti-O hype from a few loud mouths;

        at the same time these dimwits ignore the dedicated work of Team Obama, diplomats and other leaders who understand that maintaining peace is hard and needs focus on a complex evaluation of long-term options and (obvious and unanticipated) results

      Isn’t the caption to the top picture incorrect, Bobfr? I thought today’s march in Russia was anti-war?

    Father traumatizes his young daughter while telling her that pro-choice demonstrators “believe in killing babies.”

      This is the same kind of man who would kneel down to his little daughter and tell her that a black man and white woman being together is a sin, it is not right for races to mix.

        While my missus still lived in Indiana, I went out to visit her and finally met her Dad and stepmom. Dad’s wonderful, stepmom was, well, not.

        We pulled into a parking lot and at the same time a convertible with a black man and a white woman pulled in next to us. After that couple was out of earshot, the stepmom said “She’s just with him because of the car.”

      THAT IMO was a sin! If that little girl ends up being home schooled *I* would also call it child abuse (+ another generation with a poisoned and intolerant mind). He’s probably the first person to brag of rearing his child in a Christian family, and will be the first to kick her out of his loving home a few years down the road if she makes a decision he doesn’t favour. Wonder where the mother was while daddy was mentally abusing her daughter? Self-righteous sicko!

    in the case of Ukraine (as it is so many cases), many in global politics fail because they listen to the criticism of PBO coming from the same usual suspects who have loud megaphones and are singularly focused on undermining and destroying this POTUS;

    when events prove them wrong they just move on to the next and don’t acknowledge they were wrong about PBO;

    I always remember that the usual lying O-hating characters with megaphones convinced the world that PBO was not going to be reelected or that if he was then the vote difference would be very small and would require counting for days if not weeks;

    recall how a number of media outlets had staff on standby to wait for results many hours/days after the voting ended?
