Sen. Chris Murphy: Dems Need To Be On Offense Over Ukraine

Along with Lindsey Graham and John McCain, Sen. Chris Murphy was a co-author of this disaster. He was literally on the ground there inciting the coup in 2014 that led straight to this war.

FOX News:

“U.S. Senators John McCain and Chris Murphy joined around 200,000 anti-government protesters in the central square of Ukraine’s capital Sunday, threatening sanctions against the government of President Viktor Yanukovych if authorities use more violence to disperse demonstrators.

Anti-government protesters have set up an extensive tent camp in Kiev and erected barricades of snow hardened with freezing water and studded with scrap wood and other junk. …”

What is a progressive foreign policy?


“For Chris Murphy, the Democratic senator from Connecticut, everywhere he goes is a reminder that his star is on the rise. …

Trump’s impeachment saga, in essence, was a fight for the soul of American foreign policy. …

Murphy’s proposed reorientation — his gospel — is what he and others call a “progressive foreign policy,” and he’s proselytized it in bits and pieces since entering Congress shortly after the 9/11 terror attacks. …

This is the foreign policy Book of Murphy. …

Murphy’s record shows he wants to be (though he wouldn’t put it in these words) America’s new foreign policy evangelistat a time he feels the country desperately needs one. …

“I would love to effectuate a new way of America leading in the world that makes Americans more comfortable with globalism,” he told me in his Senate office. “I worry about the economic unrest in this country, leading us to turn inward and forsaking what I think is a responsibility and duty to lead.”

Murphy’s experiences with these issues made him thirst for more foreign policy influence, people close to him said. He saw an opportunity to seize it after longtime Sen. Joe Lieberman announced his retirement in 2011 …

But one moment made the whole thing worth it: McCain and Murphy went onstage to address the half-million Maidan protesters who had withstood a month-long government crackdown and braved the cold to hear them speak. “People of Ukraine, this is your moment,” McCain stated, his voice echoing in the open square. “This is about the future you want for your country. This is about the future you deserve.”

Murphy followed: “Ukraine’s future stands with Europe, and the US stands with Ukraine.” …

Still, he recalls the Maidan whirlwind as a formative experience. “The trip in many ways changed my life,” Murphy said at the Hartford bar. “I struck up a relationship with John that lasted for a long time, and I obviously acquired a passion for a policy area, US-Ukraine relations, that stuck.”

More than that, those close to Murphy say he learned from McCain how to play a global role as a US senator. “It’s more than just voting on things,” a former top Murphy aide told me, “it’s about standing up for American values.” …

Murphy’s core belief is that a progressive foreign policy is about capabilities. The US has the tools and resources to make a better world, if only it would actually employ them in a meaningful way. If it doesn’t, American power will wane.

Some to Murphy’s left on foreign policy say the problem with this vision is that it’s still rooted in the romantic notion of American primacy. The senator still wants the US to be No. 1, and all his proposals are in service of that goal. …”

Has Sen. Chris Murphy made a better world in Ukraine?

Is the U.S. standing with Ukraine like Chris Murphy promised at the Maidan?

From our perspective, it currently looks like a disaster of world-historical proportions. How many people are going to end up suffering and dying because of this fool from Connecticut?

Washington Post:

“In the Biden administration’s dreams, the invasion of Ukraine would bring Democrats and Republicans together in common purpose to combat Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aggression. But it hasn’t quite worked out that way. …

“Democrats need to be on the offense,” Murphy told us. “Explain to the American people who the prime beneficiary of these Republican calls for more drilling will be. It’s not Ukraine. It’s not the American people. It’s the oil industry.” …

“It’s hard to overhype how damaging the Trump years were to the U.S.-Ukraine relationship,” Murphy said. “It’s very plausible that Ukraine would be in a stronger position today if the Trump administration had looked at Ukraine as anything other than a political poker chip.”

Suppose that Sen. Chris Murphy wasn’t a guiding light of American foreign policy.

Would Russia be invading Ukraine? Would Ukrainians be dying? Would there be two million refugees pouring out of Ukraine? Would gas prices be at historic levels? Would global food prices be soaring? Would the world be in the most dangerous crisis since the Cuban Missile Crisis?


  1. The most pressing issue is the ((media)) suspicious claims about the hospital bombing to pressure US/NATO to declare a ‘no-fly zone’ over Ukraine. MoonofAlabama looks at the record.
    “On March 7 some time after 20:00 UTC the maternity hospital #1 in Mariupol was mention at a UNSC meeting as being occupied by the Ukrainian military.
    On March 7 21:01 UTC published a report from a reporter in Donbas who had interviewed someone who said that the hospital was occupied by possibly Azov or other military forces.
    On March 9 about 15:30 UTC the hospital gets bombed and completely destroyed but with astonishing few alleged casualties none of which are documented despite video records taken on the scene shortly after the incident.
    Shortly thereafter President Zelensky uses the bombing to publicly press for a ‘western’ enforced ‘no-fly zone’ over Ukraine. (There is currently a Russian enforced no-fly zone over Ukraine.)
    I leave it for readers to decide what really has happened here.”

  2. This longstanding meddling could have significant blowback. We just got defeated by a bunch of beardy goat herders in Afghanistan. Nothing but blasphemous queer child grooming being pushed here in the homeland. “Pride” comes before a fall.

  3. Here is a great topic for the next McSpencer kyke-cast.

    Why are the Irish such diseased whoring filth?

    • @Marcel – Thank you for the above-referenced links. Everything I have seen put out by the Nordic Resistance Movement has been very worthwhile. Indeed, beautiful and rational, as you say.

  4. These treasonous politicians and the govt they work for are more concerned about a foreign land, people and borders than they are about their own citizens they’re supposed to represent. Shameful.

  5. Comrades, we must defend the borders of the CPUSA cookie jar err Ukraine by any means necessary.

  6. “this fool from Connecticut”:

    Faux News star Laura Ingraham is also Connecticutian, of mixed Polish and Irish descent.
