COULD USE SOME END-OF-THE-MONTH DONATIONS! THANKS!

“There are instruments so dangerous to the rights of the nation and which place them so totally at the mercy of their governors that those governors, whether legislative or executive, should be restrained from keeping such instruments on foot but in well-defined cases. Such an instrument is a standing army.”
Ukraine has received billions of dollars in aid from the United States to help with its war with Russia. Despite this, Democrats in Congress want to send even more to the war-torn country. And they are willing to do so even if it means a government shutdown in this country.
Today is a historic turning point in the Russian-Ukrainian War. Future historians will record September 21, 2023 as the day when Ukrainian President Zelensky lost the war with Russia. The tide has shifted in Russia’s favor. World leaders are growing weary of Mr. Zelensky’s tactics, begging, and publicity stunts. We will see the war move to negotiating tables this fall unless Joe Biden does something very foolish, but I don’t think America’s ruling class will allow him to do it. Russia has won the war and Poland has won Ukrainian land.
Writing in Newsweek magazine, Lt. Col. Daniel Davis, Senior Fellow at Defense Priorities think tank, acknowledged what Gateway Pundit has been reporting for months: That Ukraine’s “summer offensive” is “producing little to no meaningful progress toward the objective of evicting Russia from Ukraine’s territory,” even as “American politicians, generals, and pundits continue advocating for open-ended support to Kyiv in their war against Russia.”
The Pentagon will exempt its Ukraine operations from a potential shutdown if lawmakers can’t agree on a deal to fund the government by the end of the month, allowing key training and other activities in support of Kyiv’s forces to move ahead uninterrupted, according to a Defense Department spokesperson.
Newly released images from a government investigation have revealed the squalid conditions of the country's military barracks.
Images of overflowing sewage flowing through bathrooms, moldy ceilings and pest infected bedrooms show the poor quality housing for the serving military despite an annual Pentagon budget of $831 billion.
Most Americans have absolutely no idea how close we are to the unthinkable. Even though leaders all over the globe have developed a really bad case of war fever, the vast majority of us here in the United States are entirely convinced that everything will be okay somehow. Most of us believe the talking heads on television when they assure us that our politicians have everything under control and that it is extremely unlikely that a nuclear conflict will happen. But on the other side of the globe they see things very differently.
Just 55% of the Pentagon’sF-35 Joint Strike Fighter fleet was mission capable as of March 2023, a disappointing statistic driven by factors like a lack of depot capacity, insufficient supply of spare parts and overreliance on contractors, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office.
The Pentagon has determined that the training and support of Ukrainian forces is exempt from a potential government shutdown, according to the Defense Department, and will continue even in the increasingly likely event that Congress fails to pass a spending bill in the coming days.
