Step aside, COVID Mania. The military industrial complex is back in the saddle.
While I was never a fan of Trump necessarily, I did appreciate the fact that a war didn’t happen under his watch. I find it endlessly fascinating that Biden has screwed things up so royally.
Yep. And the pigs will feast at this giant bucket of slop as long as they are allowed to get away with it. We borrow (steal) from the future to do everything humanly possible to avoid hard work and discomfort on the social side and double down on the empire building side with more borrowed (printed / stolen) funding. It will end one way or another but I guarantee the future holds a long period of pain and suffering directly caused by American stupidity, greed and evil actions. Get ready for the "Long Emergency" (thanks JH Kunstler). Pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
Honestly, the worst part about this Jordan is that it absolutely looks like the Biden regime had to military hardware pre-ordered as if they planned this all in advance. I truly believe the Russia Russia Russia push by the Biden. WH was the signal to ramp up for the MIC. It's really sad to say that, but the logistics happened way to fast for this to be a spontaneously implemented plan from the regime.
Hope I'm wrong, but that hasn't been the case for at least a couple years now
I'll be a paid subscriber for your work by the end of the week Jordan. You work is on another level all together. I'm just getting my start on SubStack.
Take care of yourself. The more you expose them, the bigger the circles on your back get.
How many wars started under democrat president/ democrat control ? Progressives are no saint’s they use war for spending and control their citizens... and they said orange man bad was going to start WWIII !?!?!?
If this report is correct (the silence on it has been deafening) then the US has become an active combatant in the war: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10733677/Moskva-sinking-Did-supply-Kyiv-location-Black-Sea-flag-ship.html
major grift is right...look no further than our own congress...zelinksky ain't lily white by a long shot...how are we such idiots?... the people jarrett, obama, other fools, controlling biden don't like the USA....sad, republican leadership is who again...?..absolutely worthless...entering another election cycle..wait for the before/after integrity fake out...have to say Trump - a true HERO, almost our lone HERO...although I'd have to say DeSantis is rock solid thanks Jordan
A truly horrifying situation, in so many respects. There will be zero benefit to the hardworking Americans who are paying to fund it-- in fact, middle America will end up paying dearly. In the end, Ukraine and the Ukrainian people will be destroyed by this proxy war with Russia. So very horrible and sad!
The 4 years under Trump was a drought for them. Let the “good” times roll.
The war profiteers are laughing - all the way to the bank! At the expense, of course, of U.S. taxpayers. As General Smedley Butler wrote - almost 100 years ago - WAR IS A RACKET.
“In respect for America’s 21st century foreign policy tradition, the White House is operating with complete disregard for the U.S. Constitution. Congress did not declare war on Russia, yet the Biden Administration has announced a blank check policy to actively participate in a war occurring in the Russia-Ukraine border region.”
True but…does anyone believe Congress would vote against any of this?
As the late great Joe Sobran used to say, “Don’t worry ladies and gentlemen, the powers that be will never allow a little thing like the Constitution prevent them doing whatever they choose.”
I very much want the Ukrainians to succeed but not at any cost, either militarily or pecunarily. Americans are suffering with rampant inflation due to profligate government spending without any discernable accountability, and we are now contributing 500%+ more to Ukraine's defense than the next European/Slavic country, all of which are experiencing less than half of the U.S.'s inflationary pressures. Those theoretically most affected by this conflict are not, in aggregate, sacrificing even half as much as the U.S. in promoting a successful outcome for the Ukraine.
Given that the Biden Administration, which is a disgrace and abomination in every conceivable regard, has no accountability of the money or weapons we've given the Ukraine, and taking into consideration some of this largess is going directly to NATO partners without Congressional say-so, this qualifies as fraud and the American people should demand accountability from their elected officials. There is a balance of power for a reason, and it is long past time to introduce some accountability for this feckless administration.
Thank you, Jordan, for putting a tidy bow on an untidy subject, and hopefully the mid-term and 2024 elections offer us an ability to reintroduce some measure of sanity and accountability into our corrupt and completely ineffectual Federal Government.
How many billions of dollars do we have lying around without a budget and with no controls on how it’s spent? If we’re going to war, doesn’t Congress have to authorize it? Over my lifetime, it’s always the Democrats who talk peace and wage war.
The conflict between Putin and Zelensky is not our fight. Use that money and weapons to stop the invasion happening on our Southern border. Yes, I am an isolationist. We have sacrificed blood and treasure to satisfy old neocons in power. Kick them out and get our house in order for once.
They have no idea where the weapons end up? They should check out intel slava for a clue.
What doesn't get demolished the instant it enters Ukraine will be getting stuck in transit for easy destruction as Russia has busied itself in the last couple weeks taking out strategic bridges & railroad tracks all over western Uke.
What makes it through to remaining troops gets blown up with troops, or surrendered with troops that manage to shoot their Nazi superiors before their Nazi superiors shoot them. And then used against the remains of the Ukr army.
And videos exist, too, of disgruntled troops selling their arms for roubles and USD. So what doesn't get blown up on Ukraine will reappear somewhere else in Europe's terrorist hands.
What I'm looking forward to is China, & other manufacturing countries that we outsourced critical components to, having lockdowns that impede our resupply. For want of a nail, and all that.
Bloomberg, at least, is under the impression that we're burning through our stocks quickly. So resupply may not be so easy as they think. A significant chunk of the world is sick to death of US.
As to the impact so far of what they are selling to Ukr, per Nightvision at the Saker, none of big stuff is integrated to enable a cohesive, strategic response, no replacement parts or way to repair, insufficient fuel, limited ammo.
Iow, not a viable threat. Just a big bonfire to get rid of the old & force us to replace, while the US depopulates Ukraine to serve its own interests
Will Russia attack US satellites? They did tell their pilots recently to be prepared to fly without GPS.
The CNN article makes the claim that we don't know where this war material is going once it's in Ukraine, but without revealing its sources. Is it credible? Might they lie about this? How can we find out where these arms are really going? If the US distributes supplies the same way it did in Afghanistan and Iraq, a lot of dangerous military hardware will go missing.
