Jerry Bowyer: Putin Got What He Wanted

As half the country goes through an unofficial period of mourning in the aftermath of the Mueller report, one thing has become absolutely clear: Vladimir Putin got exactly what he wanted.

No, I’m not talking about installing a Russian puppet in the White House. I’m talking about Putin’s actual goal: undermining faith in American democracy. And in this his most helpful, if unwitting allies have been most of the mainstream media.

Russia was seeking to delegitimize the expected Clinton victory. Facebook ads targeting Hillary Clinton in broken English didn’t undermine anything without the help of Putin’s unwitting partner: the mainstream media.

For over two years, guest after guest speculated about Russian agents “hacking our election. ” Partisan pundits blamed Russian interference for the results of every single race that turned out poorly for Democrats.

Putin got what he wanted, not from Mr. Trump but from his irresponsible critics.

Albert Mohler: The Vulnerable West

Billy Graham

A German Light Infantry Battalion recently reported, according to the Wall Street Journal, that “during exercises…their unit didn’t have the munitions to simulate battle. Instead, they were told to imagine the bangs.”

All this comes in the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s visit to Europe, in which he pointed his finger at the Europeans, including many of our historic allies, for their failure to spend enough in terms of their military.

The Dutch Prime Minister recently said, “To an extent, he has a point.” Indeed, the president has a massive point.

As the Wall Street Journal reports, “Today European allies spend roughly half as much as the United States on defense yet have less than one-sixth of its combat power.”

This is not a problem that can be quickly remedied. Perhaps we can understand why Vladimir Putin and others see the opportunity when we are told that a German light infantry battalion is having to say “bang! bang!” to one another because they actually don’t have the bullets.
