Monmouth Poll Compiles Top 22 Priorities of American People, Ukraine v Russia Does Not Appear on List

Monmouth Poll Compiles Top 22 Priorities of American People, Ukraine v Russia Does Not Appear on List

Monmouth University conducted another political poll of U.S respondents [SEE Survey HERE].  In addition to the plummeting approval of Joe Biden, the worst yet approval at 36% according to the survey, the respondents were asked to list their top concerns (Question #7).

The responses were recorded but did not come from a list presented by Monmouth.  They just compiled the results.  As stated, “what is the biggest concern facing your family right now?”  The results show the top priorities of Americans and the disconnect between the priorities of congress and the American people are stark.

(Source, Question #7)

Nowhere on the expressed concerns did anyone identify supporting Ukraine or the Russia -v- Ukraine conflict, as a priority; yet, Ukraine has taken up almost all of the legislative effort from congress.  The total taxpayer-funded congressional spending is nearing $100 billion.

The top priorities are what we would expect to see, economic issues.  Inflation, Gas Prices, the Economy and the ability to pay everyday bills (groceries) are the priorities of the American people.  All of these issues are directly caused by Joe Biden and the policy of his administration.  Climate change, the #1 focus of the administration, is not even in the top ten.  We are in an abusive relationship with our own government.


‘The War Would Not Have Happened If Putin Was a Woman’ – Boris Johnson

‘The War Would Not Have Happened If Putin Was a Woman’ – Boris Johnson

Western leaders cannot understand geopolitics except with help from a gender studies advisor.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has claimed that Vladimir Putin would not have invaded Ukraine if he was a woman.

Well obviously. If Putin was a woman he would have been too busy wearing one of those pink hats and marching for #MeToo to invade Ukraine!

But seriously, Boris believes the war in Ukraine is a “perfect example of toxic masculinity”!

He told journalists last week …

“If Putin was a woman, which he obviously isn’t, if he were, I really don’t think he would have embarked on a crazy, macho war of invasion and violence in the way that he has. If you want a perfect example of toxic masculinity, it’s what he is doing in Ukraine.”

Catherine the Great

I take it Boris has never heard of Catherine the Great?

The difference between Putin and Catherine is that if Catherine was in charge, she would have won the war by now!

Our Western leaders are so Woke that they cannot even understand geopolitics apart from their gender studies advisor.

Why would Putin invade Ukraine? Hmmmm, let’s see.

Is he threatened by NATO? Does he want Ukraine’s natural resources? Could it be to reclaim former Soviet territory?

Oh no. It’s none of those things. Vlad just has too much testosterone!

If only Putin was a little less like Sylvester Stallone and a little more like Lia Thomas — he could dominate women’s sport rather than Ukraine!

He’s certainly dominating the tiny men who are currently charged with leading the free world.

Western leaders joked at the G7 about whether they should pose bare-chested, like Vladimir Putin.

Putin on horsebackPrime Minister Boris Johnson used the warm weather as an opportunity to mock President Putin for previously showing off his physique.

“Jackets on? Jackets off? Shall we take our clothes off?” Mr Johnson said. “We all have to show them we’re tougher than Putin.”

Guffaw, guffaw. Chortle, chortle.

Jacinda Trudeau told the group :

“We’re going to get the bare-chested horseback riding display?”

This was a reference to a 2009 photo of the Russian President riding a horse shirtless.

Mr Putin, told about the rewards, reportedly replied:

“I don’t know if they wanted to undress to the waist or even lower, but anyway it would have been a disgusting sight.”

God forbid we see Boris Johnson shirtless. What’s the old saying about people in dad bods not throwing stones?

And he’s not winning any tennis matches, let alone wars, with that form.

BoJo tennis

As for Mr Trudeau, I recommend this pic is disseminated across Russia as a warning to Russian troops about the kind of resistance they will encounter if they choose to persist with this “macho war of invasion”.


You certainly can’t accuse Western leaders of toxic masculinity. You’d be flat out accusing them of masculinity.

But what of POTUS, you ask? Could not the American President compete with the picture of Putin riding a horse?

Well, here’s a picture of Biden riding a bike…


If only Vladimir Putin was a woman — like Trudeau, or Johnson, or Biden!

I jest.

The fact is that between 1480 and 1913, Europe’s queens were 27% more likely than its kings to wage war, according to a National Bureau of Economics working paper.

Queens were also more likely to amass new territory during their reigns, according to the paper’s authors, economists Oeindrila Dube and S.P. Harish.

The problem in Europe is not that the Russian leader is too macho. The problem is that Western leaders are mostly buffoons.

Emerging G8 has bypassed G7 in terms of GDP

Emerging G8 has bypassed G7 in terms of GDP

Col. Richard Black (ret.) was former head of the US Army’s Criminal Law Division at the Pentagon and served in the Virginia legislature first as Representative and then as a State Senator and recently, 18-19 June, he addressed the topic “There Can Be No Peace Without the Bankruptcy Reorganisation of the Dying Trans-Atlantic Financial System.”

PM Anthony Albanese is terrifying analysts by supporting NATO’s expansionist policies and demonstrating the ALP Government will be an American clone. Albanese has not repeated his support for Julian Assange since becoming PM.

He said: “The sanctions war has failed. The entire financial might of the Western World was unleashed against Russia. The Biden administration swore that the Russian ruble would be crushed into dust. But today, the ruble is stronger than before the war. This year, it has been the strongest of all currencies. Russian inflation peaked around 15 per cent and is expected to subside. But as their inflation tops out, Europe’s and America’s have just begun skyrocketing dangerously. The price of bitcoin dropped 5,000 points just overnight. The stock market is becoming extremely erratic and rocky. The Economist reports that Russia is generating a record trade surplus, with a billion dollars a day flowing in from oil and gas. Russia’s US$250 billion trade surplus more than doubled its surplus in the year before the war. Despite sanctions, Russia has forged stronger ties with China, India, South Africa, Iran, Brazil, Saudi Arabia; all of which continue trading at enhanced levels with Russia.”

Other voices are speaking too.

“According to [Russian State] Duma President Volodin, the emerging G8, of Russia, China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, Iran, and Turkey, already has bypassed the G7 in terms of the GDP. Other organisations and nations are working toward a new model of a global order, such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Collective Security Treaty Organisation, ASEAN, and many nations in the Global South. What all of these countries are aiming at, is the wish for common poverty alleviation, real development of their physical economies, national sovereignty, the right to choose their own model of social and economic development, and cooperation in their mutual interests….”

“So, the ‘democracies’ are really only the US, Great Britain, the EU (which, however, is divided), Japan, Australia, and South Korea. So when, at the end of this month, the annual
NATO Summit meets in Madrid to present a plan for a Global NATO and a new security doctrine, without a real economic development plan, naturally, which it certainly will not have,
it will fail to address the actual needs of a world faced with famine, pandemic, and economic chaos.”

The Australian Alert Service 29 June states: “Anthony Albanese has taken the reins of an Australian government apparatus that is tied closely into the Anglo-American war machine, and the failing City of London-Wall Street financial system.

While the new PM hasn’t had a chance to do much yet, the early signs on foreign policy are alarming. His participation this week in the NATO summit in Spain, the alliance that deliberately caused the current Ukraine conflict, and his rhetoric pledging Australia will work with its NATO “allies and partners, globally and in the Indo-Pacific”, combined with his refusal to repeat the public support he expressed as Opposition Leader for releasing Julian Assange, “demonstrate the strength of our bonds,” he was reported as saying.

Biden Plan to Cap Russian Oil Prices Could Seriously Backfire, Which Means It’s Likely to Happen

Biden Plan to Cap Russian Oil Prices Could Seriously Backfire, Which Means It’s Likely to Happen

The G7 plan to create another economic sanction against Russia by capping the price anyone could pay for Russian oil has a serious downside.  If Russia slows down the export of oil, global oil prices will jump dramatically.   That policy outcome would mean a massive increase in the price of gasoline for U.S. consumers.

Because the consequences are horrible, that’s precisely the reason Joe Biden might push to have the Russian price cap.  Every policy Joe Biden has historically supported, has been the exact opposite of what should have been done.  Biden has a profound and innate ability to screw up anything.

[Bloomberg] – Global oil prices could reach a “stratospheric” $380 a barrel if US and European penalties prompt Russia to inflict retaliatory crude-output cuts, JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts warned.

The Group of Seven nations are hammering out a complicated mechanism to cap the price fetched by Russian oil in a bid to tighten the screws on Vladimir Putin’s war machine in Ukraine. But given Moscow’s robust fiscal position, the nation can afford to slash daily crude production by 5 million barrels without excessively damaging the economy, JPMorgan analysts including Natasha Kaneva wrote in a note to clients.

For much of the rest of the world, however, the results could be disastrous. A 3 million-barrel cut to daily supplies would push benchmark London crude prices to $190, while the worst-case scenario of 5 million could mean “stratospheric” $380 crude, the analysts wrote.

“The most obvious and likely risk with a price cap is that Russia might choose not to participate and instead retaliate by reducing exports,” the analysts wrote. “It is likely that the government could retaliate by cutting output as a way to inflict pain on the West. The tightness of the global oil market is on Russia’s side. (link)


EU Caves Putin Wins, Transportation of Russian Goods to Kaliningrad Through Lithuania Will Resume

EU Caves Putin Wins, Transportation of Russian Goods to Kaliningrad Through Lithuania Will Resume

Two weeks ago, a NATO blockade of Kaliningrad, an outpost of Russia, was triggered when Lithuania blocked the transport of goods through Suwalki corridor.  According to the Lithuanian justification they were following through on NATO sanctions against Russian goods.  However, the escalation was very provocative toward Russia and discussions between Russia and NATO countries were tense.

Apparently, Germany was increasingly concerned the blockade was creating a scenario where Russian military were going to escort the transport of railroad goods to Kaliningrad, and that would lead to escalated military conflict with Russia. “German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is eager to avoid unnecessary provocations of Russia. He has repeatedly emphasized that he would do everything in his power to ensure that NATO does not become a party to the war between Russia and Ukraine. German soldiers are stationed in Lithuania and could become involved in a possible conflict.” {link}

The EU has now dropped the blockade and the transport of goods between Kaliningrad and Russia will resume.  The EU decision was made before the NATO meeting in Madrid concluded; however, it looks like NATO postponed the announcement until after Biden left in order to save face on the reversal of position.

GERMANY – The European Commission plans to issue a clarification that will allow Russia to resume sending supplies to the exclave of Kaliningrad via Lithuania. Berlin supports the idea, but some in Vilnius are not pleased.

[…] The move will put an end to a disagreement that had not only been a significant source of tension between Russia and Brussels – but also exposed deep rifts within the EU regarding the correct approach to Moscow.

[…] The European Commission clarification expressly applies to all EU member states, but it mostly only affects the situation in Kaliningrad. According to the document, Russia will be allowed to transport sanctioned goods to Kaliningrad, but only in amounts comparable to pre-invasion deliveries.

The policy that has been adopted by the Commission largely reflects the position of the German government. Berlin had been critical of the approach taken by Lithuania.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is eager to avoid unnecessary provocations of Russia. He has repeatedly emphasized that he would do everything in his power to ensure that NATO does not become a party to the war between Russia and Ukraine. German soldiers are stationed in Lithuania and could become involved in a possible conflict.

The rules for the transit of goods, Scholz said at the conclusion of recent NATO summit in Madrid, “must of course be established in light of the fact that this is about shipments between two parts of Russia.” The comment made it clear that Berlin has a different interpretation of the legal situation than the government in Lithuania.

GOP Rep. Garbarino: Biden Has No Plan for War He Says Gas Prices Will Remain High for Duration of

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Andrew Garbarino (R-NY) reacted to President Joe Biden’s declaration that gas prices will remain high for “as long as it takes” to stop Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by stating that the administration hasn’t given any sort of a plan for how to end the invasion.

Garbarino stated, “I don’t think there is a plan. I don’t think the administration has a plan. We — it hasn’t been shared with us in Congress, and there should be — those discussions should be happening, but they’re not. But I love the fact that he’s blaming gas prices only on this war. You know, in November 2020, gas prices were around 43 — a barrel of oil was $43 a barrel. And now, a month before Putin invaded Ukraine, it was $87. So, it was already doubled in one year of his presidency. So, the fact that he’s blaming all of this on the Russian invasion of Ukraine is a joke. He’s just looking for someone else to blame for his bad policies. But as for Ukraine, I don’t think he’s got a plan and that’s why he said, wait it out.”

Congress quietly Bans Federal Funds from labs in China, Russia and Iran

Vote is latest action to acknowledge that theory that COVID-19 leaked from Wuhan research lab — once censored as preposterous and by news organizations, social media giants — is viable enough for government to vote with its pocketbook

By John Solomon

While U.S. intelligence has been unable in two years to determine for sure if COVID-19 leaked from a Chinese lab, Congress has decided it no longer wants to take the risk of funding medical research at labs controlled by Beijing or other American adversaries.

With little fanfare and in bipartisan fashion, House appropriators quietly amended the 2023 federal budget for health and science agencies on Thursday to ban any funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which U.S. intelligence fears may have been the origin point for the coronavirus pandemic, and other labs like it.

“None of the funds made available by this Act may be made available to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, or any other laboratory located in a country determined by the Secretary of State to be a foreign adversary, including China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran,” reads the amendment approved by the House Appropriations Committee.

You can read the amendment here:

The vote is the latest official government action to acknowledge that the theory that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan research lab — once panned as preposterous and censored by news organizations and social media giants — is viable enough for the government to vote with its pocketbook.

After more than a year of ridicule, the lab leak theory was officially recognized by the Biden administration’s intelligence apparatus as one of the two most viable explanations for the appearance of coronavirus, with the other being natural evolution.

The lab leak theory got even more credence last month when the World Health Organization, the United Nations body that first dismissed the lab leak theory, admitted there was “new evidence” supporting the theory that needed investigating.

WHO said on June 10 that  “key pieces of data” to explain how the pandemic began were still missing and that it must “remain open to any and all scientific evidence that becomes available in the future to allow for comprehensive testing of all reasonable hypotheses.”

The announcement by WHO led House Republicans to cheer. “Americans were smeared as ‘conspiracy theorists’ for asking whether #COVID19 came from a lab leak,” they tweeted. “Now, the WHO is asking the same questions.”

The Appropriations Committee action on Thursday was praised by Rep. Lisa McClain (R-Mich.), a member of the House Education and Labor Committee who sponsored the amendment over national security concerns and the fact that many foreign labs conduct abusive experiments on animals.

“Our tax dollars should never go to countries that threaten our national security,” she said. “We’ve seen how dangerous it is to fund research at the Wuhan Lab in China. I’ve been leading efforts to defund animal labs in China, Russia and other foreign adversaries and I’m proud that the House Appropriations Committee adopted an amendment supporting my efforts to prevent taxpayers’ money from being sent to labs in these countries.”

Also applauding the action was the nonprofit group White Coat Waste Project, which earlier this year revealed that 32 animal labs in Russia and China were eligible to receive taxpayer dollars via the National Institutes of Health and that one in Russia was involved in a cruel experiment on cats.

“A majority of Americans agree that taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to pay white coats in foreign labs to torture animals in dangerous and wasteful experiments,” said the group’s Senior Vice President Justin Goodman. “Having first exposed NIH funding for animal labs in China and Russia — including the notorious Wuhan Institute of Virology — we applaud Republicans and Democrats on the Appropriations Committee for their historic move to defund wasteful spending in dozens of animal testing labs run by our enemies.”
