  • Putin often became frustrated with Trump over his lack of knowledge on big issues, Fiona Hill said.
  • "He had to keep explaining things, and Putin doesn't like to do that," Hill said.
  • Hill said this factored into Putin's decision to invade Ukraine during the Biden administration.
Russian President Vladimir Putin often became frustrated with President Donald Trump over his lack of knowledge on geopolitical issues, Fiona Hill said, adding that this played into Moscow's decision on the timing of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

One of the reasons Putin invaded Ukraine with President Joe Biden in the White House was that he expected the US to "sue for peace" and thought it would be better to deal with Biden than trying to negotiate with someone like Trump, whom the Russian leader had "to explain everything to all the time," Hill, who served as the top Russia advisor on the National Security Council under Trump, said Tuesday at a Chicago Council on Global Affairs event.

But Putin wanted Trump!?! Russia, Russia, Russia!

Too bad the American public has the attention span of a flashbulb and the memory of a goldfish.

Exclusive-U.S. aims to arm Ukraine with advanced anti-ship missiles to fight Russian blockade​



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House is working to put advanced anti-ship missiles in the hands of Ukrainian fighters to help defeat Russia's naval blockade, officials said, amid concerns more powerful weapons that could sink Russian warships would intensify the conflict.

Ukraine has made no secret it wants more advanced U.S. capabilities beyond its current inventory of artillery, Javelin and Stinger missiles, and other arms. Kyiv's list, for example, includes missiles that could push the Russian navy away from its Black Sea ports, allowing the restart of shipments of grain and other agricultural products worldwide.

Current and former U.S. officials and congressional sources have cited roadblocks to sending longer range, more powerful weapons to Ukraine that include lengthy training requirements, difficulties maintaining equipment, or concerns U.S. weaponry could be captured by Russian forces, in addition to the fear of escalation.

But three U.S. officials and two congressional sources said two types of powerful anti-ship missiles, the Harpoon made by Boeing and the Naval Strike Missile made by Kongsberg and Raytheon Technologies were in active consideration for either direct shipment to Ukraine, or through a transfer from a European ally that has the missiles.

In April, Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy appealed to Portugal to provide the Ukrainian military with Harpoons, which have a range of up to almost 300 km.

But there are several issues keeping Ukraine from receiving the missiles. For one, there is limited availability of platforms to launch Harpoons from shore — a technically challenging solution according to several officials — as it is mostly a sea-based missile.

Two U.S. officials said the United States was working on potential solutions that included pulling a launcher off of a U.S. ship.

About 20 Russian Navy vessels, including submarines, are in the Black Sea operational zone, the British defense ministry has said.

192 members of the party that claims to be PRO LIFE voted AGAINST funding efforts to attempt to assist the baby formula shortage.

In a more partisan vote, 231-192, the House passed H.R. 7790, the Infant Formula Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2022. The bill provides $28 million in emergency appropriations for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to address the shortage of FDA-regulated infant formula and prevent further shortages, including efforts to "prevent fraudulent products from entering the United States market."

Chew on that one and try to justify that twisted logic.... I'm no scientist or expert but I'm pretty sure babies that are brought into the world kinda need to eat 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

It doesn’t take $28 million to figure out (address) how to say “Start A Plant Back Up”. That wasn’t found to have been the cause to begin with. Or is that the “Big Guys” cut?

That's what you get when you sell out to a communist government.

they're to be applauded................

Yes.
Like the rest of Europe they suckled Russia teat.
Yes.
Like pretty much the rest of the world - they thought Russia may have intergrated with the West to the point that it was safe to do so.

Now that they see the error of their ways & even though it's probably going to wreck their economy (which is the strongest in Europe) they've decided to make the hard choice & join in with the economic sanctions. supply Ukraine with heavy weaponry, boost defense spending higher then at at anytime since WW2, as well as weaning themselves off of Russian ga which they have said they'll quit completely by the end of the year or sooner if possible.

You think the US would do that?
Oh the uproar that would be heard.

We're already crying over high gas prices & inflation. Imagine what would happen if we were told we now have resort to gas rationing?

Watching NYT hit piece on Elon Musk, on FX.
Timing is somewhat suspicious, S&P dropped Tesla off their green listings too.

He was their hero with green electric cars and reusable rockets...what the hell happened?
