‘I mean’, ‘listen you guys’, VP Harris flubs history of Russia-Ukraine tensions

Vice President Kamala Harris does not speak much about national security, nor any other pressing matters, and her comments on the escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine may be an indication as to why that’s the case.

Vice President Kamala Harris was clearly ill prepared to discuss the Ukraine crisis with reporters at the Munich Security Conference in Germany. The Vice President took a laid back, deflect approach with a lot of “I mean” and “listen” and “guys” in hopes of distracting everyone from noticing her lack of knowledge.

“I mean, listen, guys, we’re talking about the potential for war in Europe,” Harris said responding to a question about how the Biden administration saw the situation’s “endgame” playing out.

“I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about,” Harris went on. “It’s been over 70 years. And through those 70 years … there has been peace and security. We are talking about the real possibility of war in Europe.”

Uh, yeah, that’s what everyone is gathering to discuss, madam vice president. One Twitter user jumped on Harris writing, “Did I just watch Kamala Harris claim there has been peace in Europe for 70 years?”

One perfect description for whatever it is that Harris was trying to say is “word salad” tweeted by former GOP House and Senate candidate from Pennsylvania, Sean Parnell. “This word salad … may God help us all,” wrote Parnell.

The New York Post quoted Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy who tweeted, “We are being led by total buffoons.”  Dunleavy pointed out those 70 years of “peace and security” included the Yugoslavian civil wars of the 1990s, “as well as Russia’s attacks on Georgia & Ukraine.”

“Also, Berlin Wall only came down three decades ago so I’d quibble with 70 years,” he added before emphasizing in a second tweet that “it is not true there have been no wars in Europe for 70 years, nor do I consider the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe ‘peace & security.’”

    Kama is the unqualified VP in history yet Joseph picked her as his successor if he could no longer serve.
    Joe picks only the Best? What we have gotten is the worst Presidency of at least modern times… perhaps much longer. Kama could take the top spot if given the opportunity. Seriously, what has happened to the Old Dem Party? They have been hijacked by radicals and fools.

    Ukraine became a SELF CREATED problem when Victoria, F__k the EU, Nuland and George, Color Revolution, Soros OVERTHREW the pro Putin Ukraine Government and forced the Russian people in Crimea to join Russia, along with their warm water base at Sevastopol. Based on that, if President Putin (a Christian) takes Ukraine back to prevent NATO nuclear weapons from being deployed in Ukraine, it should be seen by Americans who KNOW HISTORY as a rejection of the neoCON war mongers.

    “We are being led by total buffoons.” Sadly, so true.

    Do you really expect an anchor baby who was reared in Canada to know much of anything about US history or the cold war or the conflicts in Europe. The woman is walking train wreck who proves she’s an even bigger train wreck than you can imagine every single time she opens her mouth. She’s an oxygen thief who is not even eligible to the president. I cannot believe this is what has become of our nation.

    She probably made an “A” in history and didn’t even study or read the books.

    A buffoon nation deserves/elects/can only afford buffoon leaders! Ironically, in the last 100 years, the only “true” buffoon leaders – Reagan and Trump, both related to public entertainment – were also the best leaders and least buffoons when it came to serious matters. Kamala Harris is a useless entity for who needs a Fou du Roi when the Roi est Fou? If there was a drop of international credit left, it has vanished now that the US have become the laughingstock of the world!

Palestinians in Gaza stealing food aid before it can be delivered, ‘nothing getting through’

The United Nations has proven to be incredibly trustworthy and bias against Israel as it fights for its survival against Hamas. Senior U.N. aid official Edem Wosornu said there were “insufficient supplies and fuel to provide any meaningful level of support to the people of Gaza as they endure Israel’s military onslaught against Hamas militants.”

However, food and medicine for Palestinians in Gaza are piling up in Egypt because the Rafah crossing remains closed and there has been no aid delivered to a U.N. warehouse from a U.S.-built pier for two days, reports Reuters.

National Review explains the issue: the food aid is getting stolen before it can reach the World Food Program warehouse . . . just eight miles away. Once the food aid leaves the pier, the United Nations, international partners, and the “humanitarian community” oversee getting the aid to those who need it most. And they’re getting robbed, hijacked, and mugged.

The Gaza Pier is complete and operational, which is what the Biden administration wanted, allowing for headlines such as: “U.S. military starts delivering aid to Gaza through floating pier” this past weekend. However, “what you’re not as likely to hear about is what happens to the aid after it leaves the pier” writes National Review.

Apparently some Palestinians stole so much of the aid from the first shipments that the following shipments are on hold until authorities can find enough security.

Reuters tells the grim tale:

Aid deliveries began arriving at a U.S.-built pier on Friday as Israel comes under growing global pressure to allow more supplies into the besieged coastal enclave. The U.N. agreed to assist in coordinating aid distribution from the floating pier, but has remained adamant that deliveries by land are the best way to combat the crisis.

The U.N. said that 10 truckloads of food aid – transported from the pier site by U.N. contractors – were received on Friday at a World Food Program warehouse in Deir El Balah in Gaza.

But on Saturday, only five truckloads made it to the warehouse after 11 others were cleaned out by Palestinians during the journey through an area that a U.N. official said has been hard to access with humanitarian aid. [Emphasis added.]

“They’ve not seen trucks for a while,” a U.N. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters. “They just basically mounted on the trucks and helped themselves to some of the food parcels.”

The U.N. did not receive any aid from the pier on Sunday or Monday. “We need to make sure that the necessary security and logistical arrangements are in place before we proceed,” said the U.N. official.

In summation, Palestinians in Gaza stole the food parcels before they could be distributed at the intended destination, and nothing’s gotten through since Saturday.
