Is The US At War With Russia Now?

By Neenah Payne

Tucker Carlson’s Explosive Interview With Vladimir Putin shows that Carlson interviewed Putin on February 6. Carlson had been trying to interview Putin for three years, but the US government had leaked his text messages to the New York Times which spooked the Russian government into canceling the interview.

Del Bigtree, host of The Highwire reported:

TODAY, Legacy Media, government leaders, and special interests are calling for the arrest, and even the death, of Tucker Carlson, leading up to the release of his interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Why are they all so desperate to silence a journalist for doing his job? What happened to freedom of the press? Why are they so openly violating the principles of the Constitution to silence him?

Carlson’s Putin Interview: 7 Key Revelations explains that Carlson’s interview got 200 million views within the first week.  MSNBC’s most popular news host, Rachel Maddow, typically gets 2-2.5 million views. Carlson was the big conservative host on Fox News. Maddow remains the biggest liberal one.  Carlson’s interviews sometimes score a hundred times as many views as Maddow’s.

Putin said Russia and the Ukraine were ready to sign the Minsk Accords of 2022, but British Prime Minister Boris Johnson torpedoed the agreement.  The West wants to use the war to weaken Russia and to get the Ukraine to join NATO. See How Boris Johnson Sabotaged World Peace.

The Biden administration has spent $175 billion on the Ukraine war. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have been killed or displaced. Biden has suggested sending US troops. There is no discussion of how to end this conflict which threatens all of humanity.  The article further below shows that Republican North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum is on the shortlist for Trump’s VP. He is very supportive of war with Russia that can escalate into a nuclear conflict!

Are We On The Brink of Nuclear War?

Carlson interviewed Andrey Melnichenko, one of Russia’s richest men with $19.2 billion.

Forbes says:

  • Industrialist Andrey Melnichenko is the founder of fertilizer producer Eurochem and coal energy company SUEK.
  • The son of a Soviet physicist, Melnichenko dropped out of college when the Soviet Union fell in 1991 to start a chain of currency exchange booths.
  • Two years later, he founded MDM Bank, which became one of Russia’s most successful private banks.
  • Melnichenko’s companies, which employ more than 100,000, have invested some $23 billion into fertilizer and coal production over the past 15 years.
  • Melnichenko was sanctioned by the EU and UK in March 2022, and by the US in August 2022; he called the sanctions “absurd and nonsensical” and is disputing them.

Carlson’s Putin Interview: 7 Key Revelations shows that while he was in Moscow, Carlson visited a subway, grocery store, and a McDonald’s equivalent. His conclusion was US sanctions have not hurt Russia. In the interview, Melnichenko explains how the sanctions hurt the US dollar. See Why The Petrodollar Is Finished Now!.

Tucker: How has Russia been affected by the war?

Andrey Melnichenko: It’s a tragedy for the Russian people, for sure. If you’re asking about the economy, it is doing much better than many experts expected.

Tucker: How did Putin change Russia?

Andrey Melnichenko:  Society was crying for stability. He brought stability to Russia.

Tucker: Are you close to Putin?

Andrey Melnichenko: I never met him one on one.

Tucker: But why do you think taking Putin out as president of Russia became the number one objective of the U.S. government?

Andrey Melnichenko:  So, cooperation between the Russian and Western governments deteriorated during the last 20 years. It developed this increase of the NATO presence closer to the Russian borders.
I would say a very dangerous moment which perhaps we did not experience for the last 40 years.

Tucker:  I don’t think that most Americans fully understand we’re in a hot war with Russia. Both sides are now openly talking about using nuclear weapons. I never thought I would live to see that. That seems crazy. Are the Russians worried?

Andrey Melnichenko: Of course. But I don’t understand why West not worrying about today’s situation. That was a major discussion somewhere in 2021.

Tucker: Do you think the West wants a nuclear war? I mean, is this an effort to commit suicide?

Andrey Melnichenko:  I think that next level of escalation it’s very possible.

Tucker: Do you think Trump is capable of stopping this trajectory of escalation?

Andrey Melnichenko: I don’t know.

Tucker: Is there any other leader in the world who is?

Andrey Melnichenko: I don’t know. It’s become very dangerous. So I think that world needs a moment to cool down.

Tucker: In Europe, do you think the rest of the world understands how close we are to nuclear war?

Andrey Melnichenko:  I don’t know. But in Europe, I think, understanding of the situation: growing.

Burgum: We Just Haven’t Sent Troops Yet

Burgum: ‘We’re At War with Russia, We Just Haven’t Sent Troops Yet’ 7/3/24

With a growing number of American voters expressing skepticism over U.S. involvement in Ukraine, Republican North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum doesn’t appear to be reading the room so well. Burgum who is on Donald Trump’s short list of potential running mates, appears to be doubling down on the neoconservative impulse to engage the rest of the world via military force.  Burgum has long been on record as stating that the U.S. is engaged in a cold war with Russia and China (video on X).

Now he’s being even more reckless, telling a reporter that “We’re at war with Russia, we just haven’t sent troops yet.” Burgum went on to suggest that the hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars and military aid being given to Ukraine aren’t “irresponsible” but are “a bargain” in that they are being used to “destroy a peer competitor.”

What Burgum fails to mention is that this “bargain” is also pushing the world closer to armed conflict with a nuclear-armed foe. When pressed about the issue of securing the U.S. border rather than sending money abroad to entangle our nation in a territorial dispute half a world away, Burgum breezily assures us that we can afford to do both….He has also indicated a willingness to send U.S. troops to Israel, bravely stating that “everything’s got to be on the table” when it comes to confronting Hamas and Iran.

In the meantime, Americans who actually have skin in the game, financially and in the form of sons and daughters who they don’t wish to see needlessly sacrificed for dubious foreign policy goals, Burgum’s rhetoric is dangerously tone-deaf at best.
