Donald trump ‘crushing it’ in the polls: Dave Rubin

posted at 13:18:57 UTC by Sky News Australia via SkyNewsAustralia

Recent US polling shows Donald Trump is “crushing it” despite indictments, says the Rubin Report host Dave Rubin.

“I missed the Georgia indictment, but it does not seem to affect any of his … based support,” he told Sky News host Paul Murray.

“If we’re to believe what the polls are, he’s crushing it right now.

“Right now the support just seems to not be moving or not leaving.”

Blinken shares McDonald’s meal with Ukrainian FM

posted at 13:23:30 UTC by TRT World via TRT World

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba shared a McDonald’s meal in Kiev on September 6 during Blinken’s visit to express Washington’s unwavering support for Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian offensive.

The Pentagon on Wednesday announced a new security assistance package worth up to $175 million for Ukraine, including depleted uranium ammunition for Abrams tanks, a move Russia denounced, calling it an “indicator of inhumanity.”

Visit our website:

The missile came without warning and the result was devastating.

At least 16 people have been killed, and many more seriously injured, in a missile attack on a market in Ukraine. In the terrible aftermath, rescue workers rushed to apply tourniquets and load the injured into vans.

This is one of the deadliest Russian strikes in months, and adds weight to the allegation that Vladimir Putin’s regime is deliberately targeting civilians in an attempt to break the resolve of Ukraine and its allies.

But if that’s the objective, then there’s no sign that it’s working. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, currently visiting Ukraine, announced $1 billion in additional funding towards the war effort in a joint conference with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.

In an apparent policy U-turn, the US has also pledged to supply depleted Uranium shells for use in its M1 Abrams tanks, due to be delivered to Ukraine later this year.

The Fatal Flaw that Doomed the Wagner Group

The Wagner Group’s mutiny in June 2023 marked the beginning of the end of its leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin. Although officially pardoned for his actions, someone within Russia was actually just waiting for the right time to take him out. However, it was a decision Wagner made many years beforehand that would eventually seal their fate. This is the story of how not to structure a military organization (unless you want to make millions at the cost of your own life).

The view of the United States as the Third World country, destined to fall was very common sentiment and almost official doctrine in the KGB – GRU circles; more of the rage than analysis, however. Did they try to prove this theory of America as the Third World country with the staged mass killings, as one of their intimidation tools?

Arming against Putin – NATO in the Baltic Sea | DW Documentary

posted on Sep 02 2023 08:39:07 UTC by DW Documentary via Politics and History – 2023

The Baltic Sea was thrust into the center of geopolitics after Russia’s invasion into Ukraine. Feeling the threat from Russia, Finland joined NATO and Sweden is on the path to be next. That would put the Baltic Sea almost entirely under NATO control.

How did this Baltic frontline look in the past? The fact that the Cold War could have turned hot right here, started to fade from public consciousness after 1990. But Moscow’s aggression in February 2022 presented a stark reminder. Russia’s full-scale attack on Ukraine sent shock waves across the Baltic region. Finland is now a member of NATO, and Sweden is in the process of accession. This would turn the Baltic into NATO’s “inland sea,” in complete defiance of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s imperial aspirations.

Russian troops and Western forces are locked in constant power plays in the Baltic Sea. While Finland has been a NATO member since April 2023, Sweden’s membership has been held up by Turkey. Estonia’s government, meanwhile, is urging action. After all, people in the Baltic states are all too familiar with the looming dangers, having lived for decades under Soviet occupation.

On Russia’s Navy Day in 2022, Putin renewed the country’s claim to global naval dominance. Russia’s fleet-building program, however, appears to be stalling in the wake of the costly attack on Ukraine. But a weakened standing does not make a regime any less dangerous. Experts are not ruling out the possibility that Russia will use nuclear weapons. And here too, the Baltic Sea takes center stage.

This documentary invites viewers on an image-rich journey to scenes from this conflict. High-ranking political and military officials as well as leading experts illustrate the volatility of the Baltic Sea. In the end, there’s a prediction as to which side between Kiel and St. Petersburg will have the upper hand – the East or the West. The film examines present dangers and the consequences that could very well follow.
