Last week, President Biden signed a massive \$40 billion military aid bill for Ukraine. Who cares that inflation is killing the American economy and mothers can’t even get baby formula. For Washington, spending on war and empire always seems to trump America’s interests.

To put this giveaway to Ukraine in perspective: just since late February, the US has provided nearly \$60 billion in “assistance” to Ukraine. That is almost half that country’s entire 2020 GDP! Washington has literally adopted Ukraine in our name and on our dime.

The Biden Administration claims that Ukraine is winning the war with Russia and that such an expenditure to protect Ukraine’s borders is critical to our national interests and worth risking a nuclear war over.

But protecting Ukraine’s democracy is no longer the stated goal of the Administration. Defense Secretary Austin outlined the Administration’s new intention not long ago when he said that the real goal is to weaken Russia.

Biden’s neocons are fighting a war with Russia, but once again Congress has no interest in voting on a war declaration or even in debating whether war with Russia 30 years after the end of the Cold War is a good idea.

There is a reason our Constitution grants war powers to the legislative branch. Forcing Members of the House and Senate to declare the US to be in a state of war also enables them – through the powers of the purse-string – to define the goals of the war and particularly what a victory looks like. That prevents the kind of mission-creep ahd shifting objectives that have characterized our endless wars in the 21st century – including this current proxy war with Russia.

Even the US mainstream media is beginning to notice. Last week the New York Times’ Editorial Board published an editorial originally titled, “What is America’s Strategy in Ukraine?” complaining that the Biden Administration has yet to answer any questions to the American people regarding its involvement in Ukraine.

While, as could be expected, the paper attacked the “isolationists” in the US Congress who opposed the \$40 billion giveaway, the NY Times editorial board nevertheless registered what can only be seen as the first major sign of dissent among the usual media war cheerleaders.

They wrote:

…it is still not in America’s best interest to plunge into an all-out war with Russia, even if a negotiated peace may require Ukraine to make some hard decisions. And the US aims and strategy in this war have become harder to discern, as the parameters of the mission appear to have changed.

While warning that Americans’ interest in Ukraine will begin to wane without more clarity from Washington as to its goals, the paper went on to directly contradict the Biden Administration’s predictions of a Ukraine victory:

A decisive military victory for Ukraine over Russia, in which Ukraine regains all the territory Russia has seized since 2014, is not a realistic goal.

Congress – with very few exceptions – has opened a financial spigot to the government in Kiev without asking a single question about how and why the money is to be spent. When Senator Paul simply asked for someone to keep track of the \$60 billion we shipped over there he was met with near-unanimous opposition.

An endless supply of US taxpayer money to Ukraine with zero stated goals and zero oversight. Isn’t it time to stand up and demand that both parties in Congress start asking some hard questions?

    Biden has no end game. He is senile. The proper question is “What’s the end game in the Ukraine of the individuals behind the Davos crowd (i.e., Biden’s handlers)?

    That end game is easy – total control of the world. The Ukraine situation is meant to destroy both the U.S. and Russian civil societies so that the pieces can be picked up by the aforementioned individuals. The puppet U.S. government is all-in. I am still not certain whether the Russian government is also complicit, or whether Putin is trying to steer a different course.

    This is the Heart of Statesman Ron Paul‘s article. This is the KEY:

    “near-unanimous opposition” to what? Near unanimous control of the Traitor, and, or, frightened (frightened is not a strong enough description – TERRORIZED is more accurate), Congress of the United States. Control by who? You know who. We are ruled by the murderers and the descendants of the murderers of John F. Kennedy, those who overthrew our Republic in the Coup Détat of November 22, 1963.

    Yes, “near-unanimous” versus one Matteotti, one Senator, one Rand Paul. The few, Rand Paul and 51 Republican Congressman lost the fight, but they will win the war. They will win before History, before the eyes of the American People; and they will win before God.

    Quisling Gauleiter Biden, has only one “End Game,” that is to serve the Oligarch Money Changers. He serves them, has always served them. He has enriched himself and his family, but you can’t take it with you. His family includes, Pelosi, Schumer, Obomber, the Clintons, Bushes.

    The “End Game” has been in progress for decades. It has achieved-millions of dead in Vietnam, Indonesia (1965), Guatemala, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, NAFTA, Libya, NATO expansion, the Corona/Covid Planneddemic, and the Triggered War in Europe.

    “End Game” ??? Both WWs I & II began in East Europe.

    At this point, the Pauls, Cynthia Mckinney, Tulsi Gabbard, Assange, Snowden, and a few courageous others, are isolated, fighting alone, lost in the wilderness of lies and repression.

    For a more positive “End Game,” our citizens will have to roust themselves, and fight!

    Ronald Wilson Reagan was a White greedy Christian.

    Donald John Trump is a White greedy Christian.

    White greedy Christians hire Jews at the top of American government administration to lead America to hell.

    Hard reality is Jews are a very tiny, negligible minority everywhere except in the Jewish Republic of Israel and in American colleges and universities and in every American government administration and in American media.

    Well no, actually.

    Said white Christians have no pretence of being able to achieve world domination. They know that they don’t have even the most infinitesimal fraction of financial wherewithal to dominate anything, as opposed to the REAL powerbrokers. ie: the Zionist Usury Banking Cartel (ZUBCAR) that have multiples of U.S GDP at their disposal.
    These white christians are no more than conscience-free HIRED HANDS.

    The fact is, these white christian ‘Front Men’, like the U.S Presidents, the Mike Pompeo’s, John Bolton’s and their foreign counterparts like Justin Trudeau, Tony Blair etc, are just OPPORTUNISTS that prostrated themselves to the Zio misfits for a few shekels of silver.

    Whilst all the Presidents post Reagan were totally controlled Zio puppets, this is not entirely true of Reagan, Carter and Nixon in particular, who were running their own races to various degrees.

    In the lead up to the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, the U.S had gathered unambiguous proof through satellite surveillance and such, that the Arab nations were about to launch a military offensive against the Apartheid Israeli state.
    Nixon went out of his way to WITHHOLD said information and make sure the Zionists weren’t privy to it.
    In the end the outcome of the war was a close run thing and the Israelis could easily have lost.

    This, and Nixon’s initiatives of 1972 that were not in accordance with the Zio playbook (visiting China and reestablishing trade and diplomatic ties, the SALT I accords with the Soviets that, as the acronym implies, meant a Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty that would ease tensions), got him seriously offside with the Zio overlords.

    Nixon, like JFK, had begun to run afoul of the Israelis and, like JFK, was targeted for destruction.

    You have it correct brother. It’s about globalism vs. both the Russia and the U.S. that is the issue. China has been allowed to run the show. Most Americans don’t want to admit this, to wit, how much the uniparty is controlled from outside forces. The MAGA movement will continue to be characterized as the spawn of the “evil” Donald Trump, where as the reality is, it is now all much much more than anything having to do with Trump. It’s aa fight for Americans freedoms–freedom of self determination, vs. globalist control of the freedom of earths peoples. As the saying goes, “you will own nothing, never have a chance to own anything and be happy. In practical terms, you won’t even be able to wash dishes or get a second job, IF, you want to. The brilliance of the men who created the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights resides in the idea that men and women are essentially selfish and by being to compete against each other, their more negative traits as human beings will be subdued. There won’t be much time left for war, an idea that is truly a project of collectivist thinking and control..

    • Agree: Rurik
  15. More than 250.000 people in Germany signed an open letter asking the government for restraint concerning the war in the Ukraine.

    In the US it’s true in the best case that Blinken didn’t do anything at all to avoid this war. And now there isn’t even one diplomatic move to end the war, even after 3 months. Absolutely no conflict was solved, even if the expectations were that Biden would work for better relations. There is NK, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, China, and a real war between two European neighbours.

    This causes a deteriorating situation in the US with inflation and so on. There are urgent questions that need to be tackled. Blinken ist the man at the center of this situation, he is responsible for all that. He called to his government the person who promoted the destruction of the Ukraine, Victoria Nuland. Why is nobody demanding that he steps down and someone new takes his job? Why isn’t there any open letter that Americans can sign demanding that he leaves his job?

    Please DON’T say that American citizens are innocent bystanders.

    Overwhelming majority of elected American Congress-people support American government’s war in Ukraine against the Russian Federation.

    And, the word “elected American Congress-people” is the KEY, which means American voters elect politicians who are against the Russian Federation, which means American voters elect Christian politicians who will hire Jews at the top of American government’s administrations from one election-cycle to another election-cycle decades after decades!

    Dr. Ron Paul will not be elected as American president by American voters.

    Patrick Joseph Buchanan will not be elected as American president by American voters.

    Ron Keeva Unz will not be elected as the governor of the State of Californication by American voters.

    Because, Dr. Ron Paul or Patrick Joseph Buchanan or Ron Keeva Unz will not hire Jews to run and administer governmental policies.

    American voters will elect politicians who will hire Jews to propagate American military-economic-cultural hegemony both home and abroad.

    So, the majority of American citizens indeed have a VOICE; but, that 70% majority VOICE is only for mass-inoculations with questionable m-RNA gene-therapies, which neither prevent transmissions, nor prevent infections, diseases and deaths!

    Because the situation and its background are too far away for an American with an ordinary mind to understand what it is about in totality. The logical response would be to say, not our fight. But the regime has learned, create a horrible television show and some great number of people will support anything just to stop it.

    In 2020, it was the pandemic and the BLM-Antifa riots. People knew the riots would disappear from the screen if they voted in a Democrat. They did, in enough numbers to make it happen. The new horrible TV show is Russia invades Ukraine. Arms and support for the Ukraine regime changes the show from horrible Russia to brave Ukrainians, so people go along. Enough of them.

    Biden’s end game in Ukraine is getting as many Ukrainians killed as possible.

    If you can get someone killed, it demonstrates you have power over them. Impact. Kratia.

    When Biden’s boss offered to let Ukraine poke the bear, Ukraine should have been like, “Uh, no. P.S. fuck yourself with a rake.” Being USG’s patsy always works out about this well for the patsy.

    Luckily for whoever calls the shots for Biden, Zelenskyy also wants to get as many Ukrainians killed as possible. Perhaps out of sheer spite. He’s a psychopath.

    It’s going pretty well for them, though Putin was supposed to go all war-crimes and he didn’t. They’re very frustrated about that. They keep telling him he’s supposed to be a rabid, slavering deathmonger, but he never listens. What a stubborn loser, right guys?

    P.S. The point of BLM was, likewise, to get as many Bantu-Americans killed as possible. Certainly, it is getting quite a few extra Bantu killed.

    Sadly they hoped it would pull more Stalinesque numbers, and frankly it’s barely a drop in the bucket.

  23. Molip says:

    “The Biden Administration claims that Ukraine is winning the war with Russia.”

    As at 23 May:

    – Putin’s support exceeds 80% in Russia.

    – 165 of 195 nations, including India and China, have refused to join the sanctions against Russia, leaving the US, not Russia, relatively isolated in the world.

    – the ruble, which Biden said would be “rubble” has not only returned to its pre-February levels but is valued at a 2 year high, today at 59 rubles to the dollar compared to 150 in March.

    That is what US\$60b buys you nowadays.

    The majority of US consumers want to protect their economy more than they want to sanction Russia (which is still making territorial gains).

    If this is what losing looks like then Russia winning would be something to behold.

    Here my speed scouting report: Victoria Nuland is the daughter of a Ukranian-Jewish American physician and a Christian gentile mother. Her husband is Robert Kagan, a leading neo-conservative and one of the founders of the now-defunct DC-area neo-conservative think tank, Project for the New American Century. In 2016 he left the Republican Party and now has positioned himself as a liberal interventionist. He is of Lithuanian-Jewish ancestry. He also is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, a Washington-area haven for elitist senior scholars and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

    Nuland presently is undersecretary of state for political affairs. These kind of people may be self-congratulatory about their experience and qualifications. Their experience and qualifications in fact more often serve the make them dangerous. The Nuland-Kagan duo very clearly is. They are obvious war mongers and, less obviously, also are social tyrants who support rule by unelected and unaccountable non-governmental bodies. That’s what liberal interventionism is about – duplicating the same elite they belong to worldwide and keeping people without the same elite credentials they have from having any kind of position or power anywhere in the world.

    Is there anybody left in America who doesn’t fight for the old country instead of the new one? Among other things, these people are bringing their historic national grievances against Russia into American foreign policy and never mind the consequences.

  29. @Anymike

    Thanks for the answers. I found them very interesting. Maybe someone has an idea how to change this situation in order that we get decent politicians and governments. We also need that here.

  30. @animalogic

    Your recollection is very good my friend.

    Every POTUS post WWII that only served one term ran afoul of the Israel Lobby – the only exception being LBJ.
    LBJ was the Zio lobby’s darling and if they could’ve made him the permanent POTUS, they would surely have done so.

    People think LBJ didn’t contest a second term because he got tired of politics and decided not to stand in 1968.
    NOT SO !!

    This power hungry megalomaniac would dearly have loved to run again but polling suggested he had no chance.
    The constant flow of GI’s coming home from Vietnam in body bags made certain that the American public had turned on him ferociously.
    Had he run in 1968, he would’ve got such a shellacking that he would’ve made Walter Mondale’s 1984 effort look good in comparison:

    Join with me and sing along in the chorus:

    ‘Hey, hey LBJ, how many kids did you kill today ?’

    Getting back to Bush 41, I’m not making excuses for him. He was head of the CIA in the 1970’s, he was in Dealey Plaza the day JFK was murdered and appears to have been complicit in the conspiracy.
    Then there’s the Chichijima incident of WWII. Simple put, Bush’s Grumman TBF Avenger aircraft (with a crew of three), was damaged from flak and was going down.
    His fellow airmen in that mission were captured by the Japanese on the enemy held island of Chichijima.

    Those eight airmen were EATEN by the Japanese.

    (Two of those eight were on board the plane piloted by Bush and apparently he told his crew mates to bail out – sealing their fate. If they had stayed with him on the plane, they too would have been rescued later on).

    Bush meanwhile, miraculously survived and was rescued by an American submarine.
    I guess the son of Prescott Bush was always going to get preferential treatment.

    I don’t know the full particulars of what went on but I’ve heard stories along the lines of:

    ‘Bush abandoned his buddies in an act of cowardice to save his own skin’.

    Anyway, getting back to H.W Bush running afoul of the Israelis, apparently he held up a \$10 billion loan guarantee to Israel over continued settlement building:

    https://www.mintpressnews.com/in-1991-george-h-w-bush-took-on-the-israel-lobby-and-paid-for-it/252650/

    Also, you might like to look at this where the headline reads ‘George H.W. Bush will go down in Jewish History as the American president who forced Israel into a subservient position and endangered millions of Jews’:

    https://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/23106

    From the article above:

    During the 1991 Gulf War, Shamir wanted the communication codes, so that Israeli pilots could contact their American counterparts, and avoid a friendly fire scenario.
    Bush refused, forcing Shamir’s hand, not to respond to Saddam Hussein’s scud missile fire on Israel. Bush sent patriot missiles, and insisted that Israel let America take care of it.
    That may be the main turning point, in the Israeli mentality, from “we fight our own wars,” to a growing sense of dependence on Uncle Sam.

    So, in the end, for all his character flaws, H.W Bush had a bit of a spine and showed some autonomy (which is more than we can say for all the POTUS’s that succeeded him).

    I’m well aware that Kissinger was a Jew. But Nixon cut him out of the loop and ran his own race on this issue without consulting the former.

    One has to remember that the 1973 Arab-Israeli war occurred in October of that year, and by that stage the Watergate fiasco had blown up to such a degree that it was obvious to Nixon that the Zio powerbrokers intended to bring down his Presidency.

    So this was one parting salvo from Nixon to show them that he wasn’t someone to be trifled with.
