      Congress and the White House Compete in Year-End Stupidity Sweepstakes

      ……………………………………….

      Far more dangerous is the continued excoriation of the Kremlin over the largely mythical Russiagate narrative. Congress has recently approved a bill that would give to Ukraine $300 million in supplementary military assistance to use against Russia. The money and authorization appear in the House of Representatives version of the national defense authorization act (NDAA) that passed last week.

      The bill is a renewal of the controversial Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative that Donald Trump allegedly manipulated to bring about an investigation of Joe Biden’s son Hunter. The new version expands on the former assistance package to include coastal defense cruise missiles and anti-ship missiles as offensive weapons that are acceptable for export to Kiev. It also authorizes an additional $50 million in military assistance on top of the $250 million congress had granted in last year’s bill, “of which $100 million would be available only for lethal assistance.”

      Ukraine sought the money and arms to counter Russian naval dominance in the Black Sea through its base at Sevastopol in the Crimea. One year ago the Russian navy captured three Ukrainian warships and Kiev was unable to push back against Moscow because it lacked weapons designed to attack ships. Now it will have them and presumably it will use them. How Russia will react is unknowable.

      See, now isnt that a silver lining?  We might not even need climate change to wipe us out.

      I’m beginning to understand Tulsi Gabbard’s ‘present’ vote more and more each day. The entire impeachment charade was another diversion, slight-of-hand distraction away from the planting of seeds of war.

      Hi progressive, david and sc,

      The following is within my living memory – Woodstock – August 1969.

      Everything we fight against today was fought against then.  What if anything has really changed?

      That's all we've ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges.

      Even though the 2% appear to have won the class war with clear intentions to subjugate the 98% into malaise, addictions, and robotic obedience to war and AI, we do have three advantages over 1969: the  obviousness of Truth over fiction (swill and BS eventually grows old, and tiresome); each other to spread that Truth; and an internet as a tool to do so (so far).

      I would prefer the bonds of great music like Woodstock, to a technology tool as bonding platform, but this tool has and will continue to work wonders.
