One day ago…………..Ukrainians fighting Putin and his Russian troops.
Ukrainians are showing us that Russia and Putin can be beaten! They are not the big tuff giant they pretend to be. Of course this could be in part because the Russia people really don’t want to be doing what the dictator Putin is ordering. They must be asking “Why are we doing this?”
The Ukrainians are fighting for their lives, Russian’s aren’t sure what they are fighting for other than for Putin.
Putin is guilty of war crimes and his crimes are climbing!
The world thought the Ukraine would have been overwhelmed by now and they may yet be, they are fighting on their own. Certainly Putin underestimated them. Trump was wrong about Putin’s military genius. He has lost it!
I am very knowledgeable on the S.W.I.F.T. financial system. I worked in the international department of a major U.S. bank for nearly 15 years, using the SWIFT system daily……..pretty much all day long.
Expelling Russian banks from the SWIFT system could/would have a huge impact on Russia’s ability to conduct business, government and private. However, expelling some banks………does not cut it. All Russian banks with SWIFT access need to be expelled. Russia can dance around the banks expelled……use ones that have not been. Too, Russia could use other foreign banks in China who are sympathetic to them; while some banks in Russia still have SWIFT access. Those Russian banks still with access can merely send messages/transactions to China and ask them to forward to their desired bank (foreign banks) destinations. Yes it complicates Russia’s ability to communicate with foreign banks, but to be really effective ………ALL THE RUSSIAN BANKS SHOULD BE EXPELLED (at least until Putin withdrawals from the Ukraine).
One thing I want to make clear……….small branch banks in Russia do not have SWIFT access (which is the same here in the U.S.). Normally only the international departments of the bigger banks have access to SWIFT. International departments that conduct the import/export business of companies/corporations etc.
Things didn’t go well for Russia while they were in Afghanistan.
Putin is now being embarrassed by civilians in the Ukraine. He is meeting a greater force than he anticipated. He has underestimated the resilience of Ukrainians. Putin thought taking back the Ukraine was going to be easy with his “PEACEKEEPING FORCE”. It is not a peacekeeping force……..that was Putin bullshit. You have to question the will of Russian soldiers to really fight Ukrainians; after all Putin said that Russian and Ukrainians are one people. It that were really true……Russian soldiers would defy even Putin. Putin can not leave the Ukraine (if he ever does) without fully achieving his goal ……….or HE faces total embarrassment (globally). This is not a rap against the Russian people, even the soldiers……….Putin lies to his own people as much as, if not more than he lies to the world. That would include CHINA!
PUTIN IS LYING……….SURPRISE, SURPRISE. His reason for invading the Ukraine wasn’t to keep them from joining NATO, though that is true……he doesn’t want them in NATO. His reason for that too is a lie, it isn’t because the Ukraine would be a threat to Russia if they joined…….(except it gives Ukraine more security) it is because it strengthens the Ukraine’s security, places them under the belt of the NATO nations. Putin does not want a secure Ukrainian existence. He wants them to always live in fear, fear of him! Bottom line, reason for invasion is to draw the Ukraine back into the map/boundaries of Russia. He wants back what he lost when they were the USSR. (Arlin Report comment)
Video available on Rumble, Bitchute, Brighteon Several days into Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, that country reports 137 Ukrainians dead and 316 wounded. It’s plain to see that Russian President Putin has a plan to overtake Ukraine on his quest to reconstitute the old Soviet Union. It’s equally obvious that President Biden does not have a plan. He has ordered […]
President Donald Trump gives the keynote speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando today, Saturday, Feb 26, 2022. He spoke of the empty shelves in our stores and the radical left zealot being chosen to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States. America and the great military have been humiliated…Continue…
Byron York’s February 21 Washington Examiner column provides a handy“Guide to Clinton dirty tricks”falsely tying Trump to Russia. Byron’s column is triggered both by the recent revelations from the Durham probe and Clinton’s response to them as reported by FOX News.
The column does a good job summarizing information in the public domain (with relevant links) and breaking it down into three major dirty tricks. Taken together, with the involvement of the FBI, the FISA Court, and the mainstream media, I think they make up the biggest scandal in American political history. Indeed, its tentacles extend into the Biden administration. I want to bring the column to the attention of readers who have followed the scandal so far.
