Another U.S. foreign policy failure in the making. History tells us what to expect. President Obama says a lot of words. Putin ignores him, says that the conflict was started by the United States, and takes troops into a sovereign state. Just like what happened in the former Soviet state of Georgia in 2008.
And our president makes himself and the United States look like the paper tiger that he has made it out to be. Under “normal” circumstances, this would be not only unexpected, but unthinkable. But we have a different president than our country has ever seen. President Obama’s actions tell a different story. What we just may be seeing develop before our very eyes is what the president called his “flexibility” after his 2012 election. The subject at that moment was nuclear arms. Now he is downsizing the military. So when Sec. of State John Kerry tells his Russian counterpart to stay out of Ukraine’s business, coming from his boss, Putin knows that it is with a wink and a nod.
In other words, to the Ukrainian people yearning for freedom, you’re on your own. Depending on their access to international news, they may already know that the U.S. can no longer be trusted to stand up for freedom, and them, as long as President Obama is in The White House.

All you need to know about why people like Ted Cruz are being so demonized by his own party, is that republicans and conservatives are fed up with the G.O.P. establishment. They, I’ll include myself in this bunch, are not going to see their contributions wasted on Democrat-lite candidates, or on candidates not willing to stand up for the principles we all used to believe in. Consequently, conservatives and republicans are sending their contributions to organizations and candidates of their choosing. Not to the RNC, RNCC, or RNSC, the establishment. And the establishment is being out-raised.
Here’s how the New York Times characterizes the tea party types:
Insurgent conservatives seeking to pull the Republican Party to the right raised more money last year than the groups controlled by the party establishment, whose bulging bank accounts and ties to major donors have been their most potent advantage in the running struggle over the party’s future, according to new campaign disclosures and interviews with officials.
Message to the RNC, RNCC, RNSC. It’s only going to get worse, for you, unless you start backing real conservatives and begin standing up for the principles you say you stand for.
