Ukraine - Didn't anyone at the Pentagon think it was funny when the Ukrainians asked for targeting coordinates for the Kremlin? Or how they are always saying they don't have enough ammunition, but they always have enough to lob something at a hospital or a market or a school?
It wasn't that long ago that when the U.S. president went overseas they were treated with respect. If I was to guess, the downtrend started with George Dubya Bush. Then it accelerated with Trump. Now with Biden, you get this.
Considering how much that we've heard about the single drone strike that killed an Afghanistan family, you could be forgiven for thinking that President Biden was simply continuing, or even increasing, our global drone war.
Billionaire Betsy DeVos, the former Secretary of Education, who had never been inside of a public school in her life, who is also the sister of Blackwater-founder and war criminal Erik Prince, has a charmed existence.
It seems that once you get high enough into the upper strata of the ruling elites, then nearly anything can be overlooked or forgiven altogether.
I'm an apologist for Biden because sometimes he blurts out the truth to the American people. I know he's part of the problem, and I respect all of you at C99% who take issue with him. He's not Paul Wellstone, he's not Dennis Kucinich, he's not Tulsi Gabbard, and he sure as hell is not Barbara Lee. But he said this, and I'm wondering if any of you who have the courage to watch the mainstream media have seen any commentary in response to it.
I read the text of Biden's speech today, not having the courage to watch it yesterday, perhaps because I was afraid of him being too weak, perhaps because I was afraid his critics would be too awful.
But I hope we all have a chance to read it at least once. I think it's a very good speech. Here's just one interesting part:

The Hunter Biden story is intriguing. Apparently now there are 3 laptops he has lost track of: one he may have left at a repair shop that wound up with Giuliani, one seized by federal agents at his psychiatrist's office, and one Hunter says in this video was stolen by his drug dealers, who were Russian. The video provided to Daily Mail, is from the Guiliani laptop, as far as I can understand.
