A Personal Letter to President Joe Biden

Dear Mr. President,

I have been watching your reaction to the build up and attack on Ukraine by Russia — going on for a year, amigo — and I would like to share with you some advice and thoughts.

You do realize that Vladimir Putin thinks you are a weak leader, lack the resolve to engage, are inexperienced in such matters, and are personally fearful of combat?

As a Vietnam War Era draft dodger, he is onto something, but I can help you. Here is my advice:

 1. Stop telling everybody that direct American involvement is “off the table.” Even if it is, why arm a jack off like Putin with that knowledge?

Keep him guessing. Tell him, “Nothing is off the table, you little trollette including de-regimeing your mangy ass.”

 2. This isn’t Putin’s first rodeo. He destroyed Chechnya, in particular the city of Grozny its capital, during the Second Chechen War. Georgia? Crimea? Donbas region of Ukraine?

He levelled Grozny using the same medieval, Dark Ages siege tactics as he is using in Ukraine.

Understand where this is headed and get out ahead of it. He is going full on Grozny on Kyiv.

Start the verbal offensive right now. Don’t procrastinate. You’ve wasted enough time already. Bury him in public opinion and get Russia excluded from every international organization.

 3. Putin has a third rate, poorly led, inexpert, conscript army with a duct tape and bailing wire supply chain.

The Russians are not the varsity. You, on the other hand, have a modern, well trained, sometimes well led army capable of destroying Russia’s weak force.

How do I know this, you ask? I used to be in the military racket.

I grew up on Army posts, my father was a career soldier, my mother was a World War II veteran, I am a graduate of Virginia Military Institute, and was a professional soldier for five years followed by a great number of years as an unprofessional soldier.

That bunched up Russian jug fuck of a convoy is a cemetery of KIAs waiting to be harvested.

So, Joe, lean forward in your saddle like you have a set and are John Fucking Wayne. Act like a guy  who can back up the mindless rhetoric.

 4. Make a big, bold stroke — call for raising a dozen new Army and Marine divisions, put tanks back into Europe, sell 4,000 8,000 tanks to Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia.

Move our European deployments right near the border and install Patriot missiles. Make Putin sweat.

 5. Joe, do some secret stuff. Don’t talk about Migs in public, you bloody moron. Secretly transfer Migs to the Ukrainians. The Russians won’t know where they came from.

Put some sack into it. Get the Migs for Ukraine and act surprised. Remember, Joe, secret stuff. Do not telegraph your punches.

Look, we’re giving the Ukes Javelins and Stingers — what difference would a Mig or two make? Give these magnificent men more Javelins and Stingers.

Give those heroic,  brave Ukrainians a fighting chance. Turn them loose to destroy that column.

 6. Mr. President, one more time, give the Ukrainians anything we can. The really good stuff. Give them Javelins, Stingers, anti-aircraft, gobs and gobs of ammunition.

 7. Crush the snot out of Russia and Putin economically. You were slow to the realization that the US was buying incredible amounts of energy from Putin.

When the polls signaled the unviability of your stance, you got with it. Stop waiting on the polls.

So, here’s the lift, Mr. President. Turn loose the Kracken of the American Oil Patch. Drill, baby, drill until US production is 15,000,000 barrels of crude oil a day and the American excess puts our whole arm on the scale of pricing. Drive oil to $10/barrel and let Putin sweat out how he’s going to pay his thugs. Knock the financial underpinning of the Russian oil economy on its ass.

Unleash the power of the American energy entrepreneur — jobs in the US, money to US energy companies, surge the US economy not Venezuela’s; reverse your disastrous week #1 energy errors. Do this now when it can make a difference.

 8. The Saudis are pissed with you. Tell those MF-ing murderers they can hang with us or Putin. If they hesitate, tell them the Israelis are going to do touch-and-gos in Riyadh unless they get with us.

 9. Last thing, Joe, tell those fools running the Pentagon they can shelve the whole gender identity and pronouns thing. Have them focus instead on force lethality, force safety, and standing up a dozen divisions.

There it is, Joe. Do this and the world will be safer, you will sleep better, and the blood of the innocent Ukrainians will not be thigh high in the Oval Office.

With warmest personal regards,

The Big Red Car


Putin To Reopen McVlad Burgers

I have predicted for some time that Putin will seize gobs of property from any foreign firm that closes down its Russian operations. It has begun.

In a civilized country, that would entail some property rights issues, copyright issues, trademarks, proprietary information, permits, and licenses.

Russia, firmly established by its conduct both home and abroad, is not a civilized country. It is a medieval, Dark Ages fiefdom run by a little mad man who kills babies, children, women, and old persons with horrific weapons because they longed to be free and turned to Europe rather than his enslaved thugocracy.

Putin Eats At McDonalds No More

OK, Putin doesn’t really eat at McDonalds. I made that up. Fake news.

If he did, I’d pray to the Holy Ghost for him to choke on a chicken nugget and for nobody to know how to deploy the Heimlich Maneuver.

The Holy Ghost will take sides and directly smote evil doers whilst God the Father and Jesus like to stay above the fray. Continue reading


Russian Oil and Gas Pipelines

To really understand the impact of Russian oil and gas on Europe — and to understand the impact on the future of Ukraine — you have to study the existing pipeline system.

Nobody seems to be willing to do their homework to understand the magnitude of the problem.

Here is a decent schematic showing the network of current pipelines. It is a massive distribution system. Click on this graphic and study the enormity of Russia’s hold on Europe.

The Battle of Grozny = The Siege of Kyiv

We know with certainty what Putin and the Russians will do to Ukraine from here on out as we have the exemplar of Grozny during the First and Second Chechen Wars.

Grozny was named the “most destroyed city in the world” after the bloodthirsty Russian army finished with it the second time around.

Chechnya is a small country with slightly more than 1MM people. Ukraine has 44MM people.

The First Battle of Grozny

Grozny, capital of Chechnya, had been savaged by the Russians under Russian President Boris Yeltsin during the First Chechen War when the Russians conducted a siege from December 1994 until March 1995. This was the beginning of the First Chechen War.

The Chechens were a tough bunch and held out for a long time being rewarded with the largest aerial, missile, and artillery bombardment since World War II. Continue reading


North Caroline Tarheels Wreck Coach K’s Coronation

Last evening, the University of North Carolina and Duke University contested a bit of sport on the Cameron Indoor Stadium basketball court in the Southern redbrick mecca that is Duke University, a school on Tobacco Road built by tobacco money.

Cameron Indoor Stadium defines home court advantage with its Crazies making it like the game is played in a dorm room under a flashlight. It is a horrific environment if you are a visiting team.

The Duke Blue Devils were favored by the punters, the smart money, by 12 points at game time, but here was much more at stake. The Duke v Tarheels basketball rivalry is the best in all of college sports. It is huuuuuuuuge.

Words That Need To Be Said — Ukraine No Fly Zone

I had a dream. In it, President Biden was younger, more with it, leaned forward in his saddle, and spoke with conviction.

Our Pentagon was led by men who did not spend their time on white rage and funding transgender sex change operations. They knew their job was to project lethality, to win wars, and to vanquish evil.

We were again the America of George Washington, George Marshall, and we were the beacon of hope, the Arsenal of Democracy, the last, best hope of mankind, and we were the decent people who we are and we stood for and defended freedom wherever it took root. We were prudent, but unafraid because we knew our cause was just and right.

We were the good guys and we were unafraid of that burden. Continue reading


Crypto Goes To War

The brutal, savage, unprovoked invasion of peaceful Ukraine by the barbaric, uncivilized Russians has given rise to a laboratory experiment in the role of crypto currency in contentious times. Crypto has gone to war.

 1. The Ukes are using crypto to fund their defense.

 2. The Russians are using crypto to avoid the sting of economic sanctions that have their entire banking system — entire economy really — on the ropes.

 3. The crypto exchanges, upon being asked to freeze all Russian accounts, have refused to comply — Coinbase, Kraken, Binance.
