Diabolical New Russian Plan for Ukraine Revealed by British Intelligence

It is high time that the world takes a stand against Vladimir Putin.

Over the course of the last several weeks, there has been no shortage of speculation as to just how Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to take Ukraine for himself.  There is only the ever-present realization that he is, indeed, going to make an attempt.

The world is watching, however, and there is no doubt that this is his plan.  There are tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of Russian troops at the border of the tiny, resource-rich nation, and Kremlin mouthpieces have already begun to belligerently suggest that those who opposed Putin’s plans will be turned into radioactive dust.

Now, British intelligence services have revealed a sinister plan being hatched by the Kremlin.

President Biden met with his national security team Saturday amid reports that Russia was planning to install a pro-Kremlin leader in Ukraine.

One U.S. official told Fox News the reports were “deeply concerning.”

Earlier Saturday, the U.K.’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office disclosed it had information suggesting the Russian plan was in the works.

“We have information that indicates the Russian Government is looking to install a pro-Russian leader in Kyiv as it considers whether to invade and occupy Ukraine,” a spokesperson for the British agency said.

The US and Britain have both sent military supplies to Ukraine in an effort to help stave off any further Russian aggression, and President Biden has repeatedly warned Putin that there would be severe consequences for any escalation.

Melania Trump Drops Major Hint About 2024 Plans

Whoa!

The political tumult of another election is upon us, this time thrusting the nation back into the complex and quickly-undulating world of the midterms.

This is the time when we’ll be learning a whole lot of new names and faces, as well as districts and places.  But, perhaps even more interestingly, we’ll be discovering just how much influence our more-established political voices will have.

Donald Trump has already racked up a number of endorsement-wins in the primaries, as his control over the GOP base appears unshaken.  This, of course, has many wondering if the former President will be running again himself in 2024.

The former First Lady just dropped a pretty solid hint about that possibility.

In Melania Trump’s first interview since leaving the White House, the former first lady hinted that there is a chance she could live there again as former President Donald Trump teases a 2024 reelection bid.

“I think we achieved a lot in four years of the Trump administration,” Melania Trump told Fox in an interview that aired Sunday morning, adding, “Never say never,” when asked if she could be living in the White House again should her husband run for reelection.

Trump also had some stern words for the Biden administration.

Trump also weighed in on the state of the US under President Joe Biden, saying, “I think it’s sad to see what’s going on, if you really look deeply into it.”

“I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering and what is going on around the world as well. So it’s very sad to see and I hope it changes fast,” Trump said.

The former President is believed to be waiting until after the 2022 midterms to announced a potential reelection bid.

McConnell’s Visit to Ukraine Sparks MAGA Complaints

Are the McConnell moderates headed for a showdown with the MAGA Movement come the midterms?

It’s no secret that Mitch McConnell has been distancing himself from the MAGA wing of the Republican Party for some time, particularly as the 2022 midterms loom just over the political horizon.

McConnell, who supported President Trump publicly while in office, has taken a turn toward the center during this Biden administration, and it has him at odds with some other major players within the GOP.

This week, as the Senate Minority Leader visited Ukraine, the MAGA Movement was stewing back in Washington.

The Senate minority leader’s secret visit to Kyiv this weekend to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, along with McConnell’s staunch advocacy for the $40 billion Ukraine aid bill in Congress, is putting him at odds with his party’s non-interventionist wing. A growing number of GOP lawmakers, candidates and former President Donald Trump are hitting the effort to send billions to Ukraine as misguided given domestic problems at home.

Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate Kathy Barnette challenged McConnell directly: “Why is Leader McConnell visiting Ukraine in the midst of the various crises right here in America?” But McConnell is unbowed.

Another Republican row was evident as well.

McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made a rare joint request for a quick vote on the $40 billion aid legislation on Thursday, but [Republican Senator Rand] Paul said no, pushing the legislation into this week. McConnell addressed his disagreement with Paul, whose blockade prevented McConnell from traveling to Ukraine with a fresh congressional victory in hand.

“Well, it’s no secret. Rand and I have a different world view of the importance of Americans’ role around the world. So that was not surprising. And it won’t create a problem. We’ll get the job done by Wednesday,” McConnell said. He was accompanied on his trip by Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas).

McConnell was unfazed, however, and the friction between he and the far right could continue to build well into the heart of the midterm contest.
