US National Security
🇺🇸 If the Speaker of the House refuses to vote on the national security supplement, then he is a serious threat to US national security.

Dear Ukraine
🇺🇦 The Republican Party's refusal to pass the national security supplement is heartbreaking, and I know it is creating a severe handicap for Ukraine's military operations. My only explanation for this is that they must not want Donald Trump to win the general election, and they really want to drive it home to US voters that Trump is a serious threat to US national security as Bolton, Trump's former national security advisor, has declared. In that case, we get the message loud and clear, and we w...

Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
🇮🇱🇵🇸 I think the Israeli defense minister's post-war proposal is more in line with the thinking of the international community, therefore that will likely be the post-war plan for Gaza.

Their argument that the defense minister's proposal is a "re-run of the day before October 7" is incorrect. There wil...

There is only one reason they would do that - he is apparently doing favors for foreign governments, specifically Turkey, maybe others too, which is a crime. I knew he was corrupt. Corruption is written all over his face. He can't really hide it. No other New York City mayor has visited Turkey as frequently as he has. Here he is bragging about it. https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/news/embattled-adams-boast...

Ammunition
🇺🇦 Imagine Russia was attacking a NATO country or an EU member state. How would NATO or the EU or the USA defend their members against an attack? If NATO or the EU or the USA can't meet Ukraine's ammo needs, then we will not be able to meet our own either. Why do we spend so much developing weapons if we are incapable of producing the ammo to use them? Weapons are useless without ammo. If the defense contractors can't meet our basic ammunition needs, then we will just have to cut all of our defe...

🇨🇦🇮🇳 We can not tolerate transnational repression in the free world. I hope India did not and would not commit such a crime, but they continue to partner with countries that do frequently commit these kinds of crimes, such as Russia and China, and the Freedom House has India listed as a country that engages in transnational repression activities. The USA will need to be less naive about these kinds of activities, and develop an international strategy for combating transnational repression with o...

He has a license to shoot and kill any intruder that attempts to enter my home, and that is exactly what he will do.

Illegal Immigration
🇪🇺 One of the main reasons the British people voted for Brexit is because they wanted the British government to have more control over the management of illegal immigrants. This is one of the biggest negative effects of illegal immigration, but it is not the only one. Many other European citizens from other EU countries are also not pleased with the numbers of illegal immigrants in their home countries. They do not want large groups of foreigners living in their homeland. Numerous other problems...

🇪🇸 Catalan independence is no good for Spain, the EU, or any of Spain's allies. It is best for all of us if Spain does not break up into smaller countries. I think PM Sánchez would be better off cutting a deal with the Popular Party, who has the popular vote in Spain, rather than cutting a deal with the Junts. I would not give the Junts any power or relevance - that's encouragement. I think it's best to shut the far-left independence groups down and find common ground with the center-right. xo ...

Ukraine's NATO membership plan is still not complete. Ukraine's security guarantee is still not complete. Russia has still not withdrawn from Ukraine's territory. The Black Sea region is still not secure. The President is celebrating the only task he has accomplished thus far, which is Finland's NATO membership. He still has a lot of...

Like a G7, Like A G7
🇯🇵 🇺🇸 🇨🇦 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 🇮🇹 🇬🇧 If Biden doesn't turn up the heat on China, we're going to have to find a new leader of the Free World. The messaging on China was not tough enough. Biden needs to know when to be more assertive on issues and to take the lead, especially on security threats like China. I think the Indo-Pacific needs a new treaty organization like the North Atlantic. The Indo-Pacific Treaty Organization (IPTO) should include, as it's founding members, all of the USA's allies in the Indo-Paci...

Nonproliferation: Turkey
🇹🇷 I think it would be wise to immediately remove all of the US nuclear arsenal that is located within Turkey's territory, since they apparently have a 'special relationship' with Russia. We should temporarily move the Turkish facility to Greece, with a final destination set for Cyprus if they join NATO. Turkey is not a like-minded ally, and I don't think we need any more proof of this to know it is true. It's unacceptable for NATO allies to have a 'special relationship' with Russia, especially...

Americans Want a 21st Century Success Story
🇺🇸🇺🇦 President Biden referred to South Korea as a success story during President Yoon Suk-yeol's recent visit to the USA to celebrate the Korean-American alliance. That success story happened 70 years ago, when the USA fought along with Korea to help defeat the invading communist regime of North Korea. As President Yoon Suk-yeol stated in his address to the US Congress, South Korea was receiving US AID after the war, but they have now grown to become the 10th largest economy in the world. South ...

🇬🇧 I haven't read the Brexit Deal, and I don't intend to. That's required reading for the British people. I am not British. Certainly the King and members of the UK parliament will make the right choice for the UK. I prefer to go along with their opinion rather than form my own. One possibility is to pass the deal but give it a limited timeframe, say one or two years, to create a trial period for the new solutions and see if they work for everyone. The UK tired PM Boris Johnson's solutions, an...

Paramount Domains and Paramount Cloud
🇺🇸 One thing I have learned from this Google experience is to never trust Google with anything at all. We must become a domain registrar to protect our domains.

Game On Google
🇺🇸 Google has literally locked me out of my own account, and is now trying hijack all of my domains that I had registered with them. It's unbelievable how blatantly belligerent the tech industry has become against Americans while the US government does absolutely nothing about it. We promise we will. I'm a trained computer scientist, Northwestern University alum, magna cum laude, and so are many of my friends. Unlike the judges on the US Supreme Court, we are "experts at the internet." We hav...

We're Upset About the State of the World
🇺🇸 I think we're just tired of writing to our politicians. We're tired of trying to convince them to work towards our vision. We're ready to take their place instead. We're tired of Putin. We're tired of Netanyahu. We're tired of Jinping. We're tired of the horror stories coming out of Africa and other places in the world. It's gross. And we don't believe the US government is doing enough about any of these things. Either they don't have a vision, or they just don't care. Some of the politician...

The American Public Will Blame Biden if Ukraine Fails
🇺🇸 🇺🇦 We're giving President Biden the opportunity to fix a previous foreign policy failure from the Obama-Biden Administration era - Russia's annexation of Crimea. Securing the Black Sea region is an absolute necessity for our future stability. If he doesn't do that, then we will see him and his team as unable to execute long-term foreign policy strategies that are in our best interest. His team has strengthened NATO's eastern flank, but that was the easy task. The Baltics insisted on having ...

I'm Literally a Land Lord Now
🇺🇸 I bought my first home in LA, which sits on a 0.5 acre lot - that's not a lot of land. Over the past year, however, we have snatched up thousands of acres across the USA: California, Iowa, Illinois, Wyoming and Montana at unbelievable prices. What shall I do with all of it? Most of it was farmland. Most of it still is farmland - rented and profitable. We've got a bison aka buffalo farm now. We have a horse farm. We have a sunflower farm. We have a lavender farm. We have an orchard. We have ...

Nuclear Energy is the Answer
🇫🇷 Nuclear energy is the only green energy that will not make us dependent on Russia or China or any other current or future authoritarian power for critical minerals and other raw materials. Nuclear energy is also the one and only carbon neutral energy source - no carbon at all is released throughout the entire production process. Nuclear energy is one of only two green energy sources that can meet the energy demands of heavy industry - LNG is the other. Nuclear energy is the only green ene...

Thank You Biden
🇺🇦 President Biden's visit to Ukraine is encouraging. Once again he sent the best possible message to the world at just the right moment. Thank you! I was a little upset about the State Department's comments on Crimea, calling it Putin's red line. I felt they were giving Russia a sliver of hope. But the president has negated that message with his visit to Ukraine today. We're happy that Biden's team is getting the messaging right most of the time, but ultimately we need the Biden Administratio...

LOL at the GOP
🇺🇸 "Don't look at Twitter, look at the people in power." I don't entirely agree with that statement.

The boring old men in Washington, however, will not be in power for very long.

China Does Not Want Peace
🇺🇦 If China wanted peace, they would have told their ally, Russia, to stop attacking other countries. China wants Russia to control the Black Sea region. That region is part of their grand strategy. Both China and Russia believed that a war on Ukraine would force Ukraine into negotiations, and force Ukraine and the rest of the world to concede Crimea to Russia. They want to control the Black Sea region, and they need Crimea to do that. They are positioning themselves so they can dominate that ...

Reality Check: China Wants to Destroy the UK
🇬🇧 China considers the UK's previous possession of Hong Kong as one of the most humiliating experiences of their entire history. China's goal is revenge, regardless of how long it takes. I was convinced Sunak would succumb to a China appeasement strategy if he became Prime Minister of the UK. I also did not believe that Sunak would resolve the EU-UK issues, because he actively campaigned for Brexit. That is why I did not support his candidacy, and I still do not support him, because that appear...

We should allow Moldova to join NATO if that is what they decide to do, even before they completely meet all of the requirements in order to protect them from Russia. Perhaps we can create a n...

That should be a clear signal that the ammo suppliers need to ramp up production of ammo. Can the ammo suppliers produce ammo at the same rate as Ukr...

The best strategy to end this war is to make Putin believe that ending the war immediately is the best outcome for him. To absolutely crush Putin's aspirations of annexing Ukraine, you must make him realize that there is no path to victory. You must make Putin understand that if he were to succeed on the battlefield, that his worst nightmare will become a reality. What is Puti...

If anything changes, if success becomes too uncertain or feels out of reach, then remember you have this option. You can trust the USA. We want Ukraine to achiev...
