Trump Offers Biden Administration His Services to Help Stave Off World War III

Source: PJ Media.

Donald Trump has offered to negotiate for peace between Russia and Ukraine. Some people hate the man, but since no one else is expressing any interest in avoiding a nuclear WW III, I’d hope they put their hatred aside.

Or if the Trump haters cannot stop hating Trump, perhaps one of them could negotiate for peace. Not appeasement, mind you, but peace.

  1. We have a President that the people elected. He is responsible for our foreign relations. This silly grandstanding by Trump is laughable. And doubly so just days after his very loose public talk about World War 3 and the stupidity of our leaders.

  2. Peace would be nice. Perhaps Ukraine exchanging Donetsk and Luhansk for Mariupol west to Crimea. After all, Putin want those two oblasts since he started a phony uprising in 2014.

    Interesting that the opinion touts Trumps negotiating skills. I am not sure he has any considering the facts now arising about his business, taxes, loans and fraudulent valuations of his properties. Stiffing vendors and then counter suing is not negotiation, it is extortion disguised as gaming the system.

    N.Korea went nowhere. China was costing us a ton of money between tariffs and subsidies until the pandemic hit. The Saudi-Israeli deal was nice, but appears to have been bought by Kushner. Immigration reform was promised, including a wall, then reneged for nothing.

    Right now he is whining about his own chosen special master. Lawyers won’t touch him.

    No, I think his offer is just lipstick on the Smithfield hog.

    1. RE: “Perhaps Ukraine exchanging Donetsk and Luhansk for Mariupol west to Crimea.”

      I think the secession of the four oblasts is a done deal. However, many observers have been expecting Russia to push westward from Kherson to Odesa, cutting off what remains of Ukraine from the Black Sea. The status of Odesa, accordingly, is a potential point of negotiation.

      Also, should the Duma formally annex the four oblasts, any further Ukrainian shelling in those districts will prove problematic, but could inspire diplomacy.

      Whether or not Trump is the right person for the job, the US/Nato has no choice but to accept the status quo, or lose the opportunity to influence any future outcome of the conflict.


      1. Secession?

        Accession is more accurate. The vote showed 99% plus in one of the 4. The rest in the nineties.

        There are no elections that attain that kind of results except sham ones. IMO

          So what? The voters in the oblasts reject your speculation.

          After the Duma votes, do you want to go to war to take the oblasts back?


          1. The Russians are too incompetent to even stage a fake referendum. There is no world in which 99% of the people of an area agree on anything let alone something this consequential.

            The referenda and annexation are the illegal flailing of a losing regime. NATO has the right policy – ignore such nonsense. And keep sending Ukraine all the munitions it needs to defend itself.

            Ok. So, why trust your own suspicions over the documented statements of participants in the referendum?


          1. I have not seen evidence of fraud. Certainly not enough to change the outcome. So what if the real results were only 80% in favor instead of 95%?

            I realize you and Len very much want the referendum to be a sham, but then Trump very much wanted a different outcome too.


          2. Are you equating our election to the one in Ukraine? You have pounded home the ballot harvesting myths here, but armed soldiers delivering, exiting, and picking up ballots is no problem.

            Cute, but pointless.

          3. How much difference is there really between ballots harvested by soldiers and ballots harvested by a Democrat volunteer who is also your social worker or your kid’s teacher?

            It’s a difference in degree, not in kind.

            It’s a bad idea in both cases.

            In any case, perhaps the numbers are off a bit, but not enough to change the outcome. The people of the Oblasts want to be Russian.

            Do we respect their choice or not?


          4. “ Do we respect their choice or not?”

            Choice? Was it their choice to have Russians invade in 2014? And up the invasion in 2022?

            Putin was after all of Ukraine ever since he took power. He has so stated when he argued that Ukraine was not even a sovereign state. Donbas was a pretense. But as the invasion turned into a debacle for him, he swiftly decided to hold a referendum with little notice and then takeover within a day of the results.

            I am merely voicing my opinion. I don’t wish the election to be a sham. I would have preferred it wasn’t.

          5. Uh, Putin offered peace in the first week of the invasion if Ukraine granted independence to 2 of the 4 Oblasts that just voted to join Russia. He said form the beginning that he wanted a neutral buffer between Russia and NATO. Zelensky refused to talk.

            There do you get the idea he wanted all of Ukraine? It’s a little early to start revising history.


          6. According to your link, the takeover of Crimea was mostly ignored by the West.

            Really? It was big news here.

            And I think the declaration that Ukraine was a Nazi state has been refuted quite successfully and often.

            Bottom line though, is that a peace offering at gunpoint is no peace offering.

            Russia gave up any rights to Ukraine decades ago. Ukraine coughed up nukes with a treaty that Russia promised never to attack.

          7. The point it that it was not Putin’s plan to take over Ukraine. It was not even his plan to take 2 of the 4 oblasts that just voted to join Russia.

            So, tens of thousands of lives and a permanently damaged foreign policy just made things worse.


          8. You know Putin’s plan how?

            He told us in speeches that he did not consider Ukraine a sovereign state. He droned on about centuries of revisionist history.

            You really think that just taking Crimea, then 2 followed by 4 oblasts in an orchestrated “separatist movement” was the end all. He is still bombing Kyiv.

            Conscripting 300,000 reservists, prison inmates and countless mercenaries are not the moves of a man who just wanted a few slivers.

            We could have just let the Russians hold their referendum a year ago and accepted the outcome peacefully.


          10. No change in the outcome?

            Why do you keep saying that? Month after month. A lot has happened since Donald Trump declared Putin a “genius” for getting a whole country at the nominal cost of some ineffectual sanctions.

            If you had had your way, the fascist regime would have been strengthened in Russia and they would be licking their lips looking for the next place to expand. Now, thanks to the ferocity of the Ukrainian resistance, Putin will be lucky to survive let alone attack others.

          11. “Are there any other regions where the people want to be reunited with Russia?”

            Donbas was NOT such a region. Russians have NEVER been a majority there.

            What part of “pretext” do you choose to ignore? There are plenty of ethnic Russian in the countries that border Russia. And just like Hitler did, when he runs of plausible pretexts, he will just invade without one.


          12. Had we not committed to back the Ukraine, it is very unlikely they would have refused to let the Donbass and Crimea go peacefully, or at least with minimal loss of life.


          13. So? I suspect that Zelensky knows Putin better than any of us. He knows that Putin wants a lackey state. That is why he sent his best special forces to take Kyiv and assassinate the president on day one.

            When that failed, he sent the ill-fated 40 mile convoy. When that failed, he started chipping away at oblasts to the north. When that failed, he held a referendum with a weeks notice, under gunpoint, with a quick vote at home to grab Donbas and a bit more.

            Putin misread everything. Yes, Ukraine needed help, and it was given to them. NATO and Europe needs a buffer from Putin more than Putin needs one against them. NATO expansion to the Baltic States, among others, was not done because they trusted Russia, that you can be sure of. And now we know that is with good reason.

            Russian atrocities, nothing new, but against Europeans they have gotten a lot more notice and verification than in deep territories like Chechnya or adventures like Syria. I doubt few nations would ever not fight to the end rather than seeing civilians rounded up, shot and tortured to death and buried in mass graves.

            Before and during the invasion in 2022, there were many postings of Putin speeches that more than indicated empire building. He droned on about the history of Ukraine with regards to Russia. He denied their sovereignty.

            He fueled the separatist movement into something bigger, then sent his military into Ukraine in 2014. Offering peace at the end of a spear in 2022 is nothing more than extortion on a grand scale.

            Putin made it clear from the beginning that the war was about regime-change. Thus the initial thrust aimed at the seat of government. That fact does not go away because his attempt failed.

            You need to learn more of the actual history of this region. You obviously know very little. Here is a thumbnail version – the Soviet policy was for Russians to migrate to Ukrainian territory as part of their effort to devour it. That goes all the way back to the genocide of the Holodomor. Before the USSR, Donbas was NOT ethnically Russian. Look it up.


          21. Then why would he add two more oblasts and the port cities on the coast towards Odessa and Crimea.

            You might want to tell Ukrainians in Kherson that the Russian occupiers are just tourists.

          26. “Then respect the referendum”

            The referendum is NOT “democracy” for very obvious reasons. You want Putin to prevail so you are ready to accept the fig leaf that he is wearing to justify his splendid little war.


          27. “The majorities are sufficiently large that the results can be trusted. Remember that there were observers.”

            Following pro forma procedures is dandy. (If you consider armed soldiers knocking on doors with ballots to be an acceptable procedure). Illegally organizing an election is not. Forcing away and/or murdering the people who would vote the other way is not. A total and desperate fraud from start to finish and very obviously so. Don’t agree with me? Maybe you agree with the hundreds of thousands of Russians fleeing their country rather than defend such fraud? Or not.


          28. “The people of the Oblasts want to be Russian.”

            No, they don’t. None of these four Oblasts has ever been ethnic Russian majority, let alone 99%. These referenda do not reflect the will of the people murdered nor the millions driven away by Russian sponsored terrorists. They do not reflect the will of the people in the Ukraine controlled areas of the Oblasts – people who have welcomed the return of sovereign forces. The votes are a complete fraud and your eagerness to deny this obvious truth is absurd.

            You seem to have a very odd idea about people if you think that – in general – they would prefer life in a dysfunctional fascist dictatorship versus life in a European facing democracy.

            Uh, you said Putin offered peace in the first week of the invasion. Not true. The offer came after the initial blitzkrieg stalled. This report is dated March 19th.

            And more to the point the conditions for peace amounted to abject surrender by Ukraine which would have to give up its territory and its sovereignty.

            Bottom line, you do not get to portray Putin as some sort of frustrated peacemaker based on the actual facts of his (1) refusal to accept reasonable accommodation negotiated on his behalf before launching his criminal invasion, and (2) his egregiously one-sided offer of a settlement even after his invasion had failed to achieve its aims.

        All of you thinking on this question seems to be based on the idea that Russia’s military can prevail. That is far from obvious. Wars are ultimately political. There is no clearer sign that Russia is losing / has lost than the hundreds of thousands of men leaving the country.

          It can — politically, economically, militarily. The notion that Russia is losing the war is pure delusion.


          1. A nation does not call for a general mobilization to bolster a failed invasion if it is holding the best cards. Russia has already brought in the Wagner Group (and they have taken massive casualties), mercenaries and is emptying prisons for cannon fodder.

            These are the kinds of actions taken by a desperate country trying to defend itself from an invasion, not the invaders.

            Now, Russia has had a tenuous hold on much of the Donbas for 8 years ever since they planted a phony insurrection supplanted by its military. So they are dug in and are close to the border so Russian pilots can fly in real quick, unload and skeedaddle before the going gets rough.

            Ukraine, the US, NATO and even China and India do not want Putin to smash and grab neighboring nations like a punk thief. The Donbas fighting will go on for months or years, and the attrition will be wearing on the Russians as more and more sons come home in body bags. It worked for the Afghans and it will eventually for the Ukrainians.

    HOWEVER, when I got to this line … “from someone he fears and respects “… everything else was shot to hell. Putin does not fear nor respect Mr. Trump (working on my civility here, Don.). He views him as just another lackey that he convince of anything, including the sky is green and the sun rises in the West.

    Negotiating skills of Trump includes lawsuits, delays and bankruptcy filings. Also, not paying contracted workers for work performed.

    Sorry Mr. Trump. While it is admirable to offer assistance, you might want to focus on your personal interests (as usual), including lawsuits in NY, potential criminal liability in Georgia, documents kept that aren’t yours, but ours, and the several other issues your legal teams are dealing with at this time.

Just look at all of the Biden reversals of any and all Trump policy and the “committee” conveniently finishing up just in time for midterms as a barometer of their hatred for anything Trump good or bad. I didn’t like his ego but most policies were spot on, the border for example, and look where we are now. Total invasion.


    1. Trump cancelled a boatload of Obama directives, too.

      The border is a problem that we have wrestled with for decades. As posited not long ago, if we really wanted to solve it, we could. Just jail anyone caught hiring an undocumented worker. Multinational CEO’s to the local lawn service.

      Even Trump was employing illegals at his resorts while he was president and bitching about the border.

      Honestly, it is as if we really don’t care except to campaign on it every few years. Cheap, compliant labor is what we want. So here we are.

      BTW the committee doesn’t expect to issue a final report until the end of December.

      I take your point, but for me Trump’s outsized ego has always seemed a feature, not a bug. The great men of history all had great egos; hence, it was always possible that Trump might live up to that potential.

      He didn’t in his first term, despite some successes. But he might in a second term, sort of on the model of Winston Churchill.

      I’d roll the dice again for Trump, given the chance.


      1. Outsized ego?

        I would say the opposite. Maybe the most needy and insecure individual to every become President. Desperate for approval. He did not just have a fair turnout for his inaugural. Oh no. He had the biggest turnout ever! Far bigger than Obama’s. And that was at the beginning of his term. It only went downhill from there.

            It is all moot. And not worth further discussion. There will not be a second Trump term and he will go down in history as a disaster for this country.

      The obvious explanation for these people to get some sort of help from government programs is one you do not care to acknowledge – they are exploited by the people who employ them with sub-standard, illegal wages and working conditions.

      As it has always been, the problem of illegal immigration could be easily solved by punishing the real villains – the people who lure them here with illegal employment.
