The United States and its NATO allies are slowly drifting into a war against Russia. The Biden administration and some of our NATO allies, while feigning caution and prudence, have gradually increased their involvement in Ukraine’s war effort. Some Western strategists talk of defeating Russia and forcing Vladimir Putin from power, even trying him as a war criminal. Victory, they say, is just around the corner as along as we continue to arm Ukraine.

In his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, White House occupant Joe Biden shifted from condemning "MAGA extremists" to putting forward his own "Buy American" MAGA agenda.

He's trying to box out Trump and depoliticize the presidency to get people to tune out of politics so the DC regime can continue with business as usual.

GOP House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is working together with Biden to achieve the same goal and unfortunately it seems to be working (for now).

Russia says US diplomats at the embassy in Moscow are spreading fake news about the Russian war with Ukraine.

Citing a senior Russian Foreign Ministry source, TASS news agency reported that an official note, which accused the US Embassy of interfering in Russia's internal affairs, had been delivered to the diplomatic mission on Tuesday.

In his second State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Biden is slated to outline a series of actions the federal government is taking to crack down on the smuggling of fentanyl along the southern border, where Mexican cartels have sought to traffic thousands of pounds of the deadly synthetic opioid into the U.S. over the past year alone.

Monday’s devastating earthquakes killed hundreds of Syrians and shattered critical infrastructure already battered by the West’s decade-long dirty war against the Middle Eastern nation. But Washington has refused to budge on its sanctions, which aptly bear the name of an ancient Roman emperor known for his cruelty.

The United States will not be lifting its Caesar Act sanctions or other restrictions against Syria following Monday’s quakes, State Department spokesman Ned Price has indicated.

The US has ruled out contacting the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad despite this week’s devastating earthquakes. Türkiye and Syria have been offered aid from numerous other countries after the natural disaster caused widespread destruction. 

US State Department spokesperson Ned Price told reporters on Monday that Washington is “a partner to the people of Syria” but claimed it would be “ironic, if not even counterproductive, for us to reach out to a government that has brutalized its people over the course of a dozen years now.” 

A new poll released just before the State of the Union speech from President Joe Biden has revealed that the incumbent Democrat’s support within his own party has utterly collapsed. The new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research shows that in spite of his insistence on a 2024 run, his position may no longer be tenable.

Local Montana correspondent Tim Kosinski provided timely reporting on the Montana pass-by of the Chinese airship, describing the explosive over-flight as “a hell of big deal for local residents”, which confirms the report of a shootout by a USAF fighter, perhaps as a warning shot.

On Tuesday, it was discovered that U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh will be stepping down from his role in the Biden administration as the president is just hours away from taking the national stage for the State of the Union.

Walsh, who took his position as Labor Secretary in March 2021 after serving as the mayor of Boston for seven years, has been tapped to be the executive director of the National Hockey League’s Players Association.
