Here's the latest joke, this one from Republican Senator Ted Cruz from the great state of Texas:



I know it's a joke because, as we all know, Donald Trump tried to extort Ukraine into smearing a political rival by holding $391 million in congressionally approved military aid hostage, and Ted Cruz voted to let him get away with it.

So obviously, Cruz is joking.

Right?

It wasn't whether or not Nord2 was approved by whatever country and that Germany had every right to Nord2. It was a matter of not imposing max sanctions, as we now are finally doing, after Russia invaded Ukraine in the Crimea territory of Ukraine. Europe set themselves up by having too much dependence on Russian oil and gas, going against the big brick theory, knowing Russia was a bad actor. The world has too much dependence on oil and gas, not going to renewables at a rate that should be, knowing the oil industry is a bad actor.

Hear! Hear!

Anyone who tries to joke about or minimize the sheer terror being waged by that Kremlin monster should be ashamed of him-, herself, IMHO.

The millions of fleeing refugees, the civilians slain in the street, the pregnant mother and her baby murdered, charming cities being wiped off the face of the earth, etc. is proof positive that savages still run this planet.

The sniveling little shit who kissed Trump's ass in thanks for slandering his father?

I wonder why he thinks anyone cares about his stupid bullshit. :unsure:

Not to mention Trump insulting his wife and Cruz continuing to fawn over him.
