I haven’t really been posting a daily Arlin Report Thought(s) of the day for awhile. Not sure why, maybe haven’t had much to say lately. But, I’ve been interested and paying attention where my viewers of this blog come from. I’ve been getting many views from Russia. Actually Russia has become one of my highest viewer countries. Not all my viewers respond or make comments on my posts. Which is okay. However, since Russian viewers make up my 2nd highest location, I find it interesting I have never received a response or comment from you/them. I would really like to hear from you! Even if it is just to say hello! Hopefully you are not restricted to do so.
It is a no brainer, even for an idiot that occupies space in our White House where China’s economic future lies. Number one, go to your closet, pull the toys from your kid’s toy box, go look at the tools in your tool box and just about everything else that was purchased from store shelves and on-line, there is about an 85-90% (give or take) chance it has a “Made in China” tag on it.
Then pay closer attention, you may have to skip over CNN and MSNBC but………unless you’ve been hiding in a basement like Biden, there are a lot of deposits in Biden’s (Joe’s and Hunters) bank accounts and their pretentious foundations. Biden is not compromised!!! It is worse than that………THE JACKASS IS OWNED BY CHINA AND PROBABLY RUSSIA, money has been directed to Hunter from Russia. The Chinese do not float money to anyone unless they have something in return, something valuable, with more value than the money they spent.
To be fair, it isn’t just the Biden’s. The Clinton’s purpose in going into politics was not to serve the public but to reap the benefit’s of corruption. Their political positions was (is) the conduit.
Their are many politician’s in our government (including state government) that are on or have been on the take from Russia and China, especially China. These politician’s work harder to represent, serve and deliver the wishes of their buyers than to serve we the people of the United States. Joe Biden is the ultimate example, arrogant as he is that he will continue to skate by like the coming Bird Flu, like an untouchable.
We have taken treason out of our American dictionaries.
Every administration that came after Reagan up to Trump has been bought by China and Russia. Cash was delivered to Iran by the Obama Administration, enough to fill up a cargo plane (delivered in the darkness of night) …………..what did we buy? Iran’s ability to push their nukes forward?
Joe Biden has gotten wealthy from a political career of bank deposits from foreign countries for many years. In the mean time, his accomplishments for the American people remain at zero ………..actually on the minus side.
I’m grateful to Mark’s contribution to this post for he introduced me to the WordPress site of John Baker, whose latest post is the above in-depth examination of Putin’s motives and The Ukraine’s recent political history, I’m particularly impressed in its full-some content covering the treachery against Donald Trump and thereby supporting our surmise that Putin’s actions serve as a distraction to the ‘worse than Watergate’ revelations of top-level political evil…It warrants serious, careful study!!
Above is a photo of the 40 mile long Russian convoy headed towards Kyiv.
The convoy has been stalled for whatever reason, who knows? Putin himself may not even truly know. From stories/rumors some Russian soldiers with no will to fight have walked away crossing back to return to Russia. I am sure a handful have, but I have my doubts that many have taken that route, as they would probably be met by Russian authorities and dealt with, hung or shot! Too, I have read where some Russian troops have punched holes in the vehicles fuel tanks……..again no will to fight.
What I see in this 40 mile convoy is an easy TARGET…….especially if it is stalled or moving slowly. If possible the Ukrainians, could gather and swarm the convoy…….overtake them with their numbers. That may not be practical……..how would you organize such a scheme at this point. My point is, they appear to be a sitting duck. Something doesn’t seem quite right with such a long convoy bunched together, especially one that stretches 40 miles. That doesn’t seem like good military strategy, having so many troops, equipment and weapons together; with little food and water. Why is no one attacking this convoy? It maybe because the Ukrainians don’t have the weapons to take on the weapons in the convoy. They are after all fighting alone. I’d say about 20-30 NATO bombers could wipe this entire Russian convoy out. But, NATO and the world are only giving the Ukrainians verbal support……….along with some weapons that are to little to late. The Ukraine needs help, actual military troop assistance from somewhere. The Ukrainians are finding out who their friends are……….they appear to have none. Ohhhh Joe Biden said “we stand whit the Ukraine!” Bull shit! Biden knows without military intervention from somewhere (NATO or the U.S. ) that the Ukraine has little chance. He should be cognitive enough to understand at least that. Putin is just Biden his time!
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!
What a difference one week makes! 10 days ago on Sunday, February 13, Joe Biden assured Ukrainian leader Zelensky that the US and allies would respond “swiftly and decisively” if Russia invaded Ukraine. CNN reported on the phone call. President Joe Biden told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a roughly hour-long call Sunday that the…
Ukrainian President Zelenskyy just said ‘the fate of the Ukraine is being decided right now’. Joe Biden approves $350 million military aid (from stock piles of military equipment and weapons). So when Joe Biden stated weeks ago that Russia WAS GOING TO INVADE THE UKRAINE why didn’t Biden make this approval then?? Better late than never I guess. Biden’s approval is after Russia has entered KYIV and as Zelenskyy said the fate of Ukraine is being decided now. And Super Joe if Americans are not going into the Ukraine to fight Russia how are you delivering this military aid? Air drops? Taking it to the border and telling the Ukrainians “here come and get it”?
Biden’s approval of this military aid is a political decision only, so Biden can pat himself on the back and tell the world he helped the Ukraine. In reality this is TOO LITTLE WAY TOO LATE. RUSSIA IS IN THEIR HOUSE!
Citizens of countries are demonstrating in support of the Ukraine. This does little to nothing to help the Ukrainians. They needed help before now, not after the fact.
Giving military aid to the Ukraine is like: Running out of gas 100 miles out on a desert highway, someone hands you a $10 bill and leaves telling you GOOD LUCK with the nearest gas station 100 miles away! No tow trucking coming……because they aren’t going out there. It’s too hot!
The Ukraine is finding out who their friends are! Friends don’t abandon friends. Joe Biden’s weak attempt, too little too late is to appease the American people (not working); so Biden can say “See, see what I did!”
