    Default Corrupt Congress seeks to spend $500 million of taxpayers’ money on Ukraine

    But of course! The USA's infrastructure can rot, crash and burn, but taxpayer dollars for laundering thru the military industrial complex is fine and dandy with both corrupt parties. Yay!

    Democrats to fast-track bill giving Kiev more military aid and sanctioning Russia in case of “significant escalation”

    Republicans are unlikely to block the Menendez-Meeks bill, as their own proposal in the House wants to give Ukraine $450 million from the FMF and impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2 right away, without waiting for any Russian action.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    It is not the trillions of dollars spent on Iraq. It sounds like a lot of money, but over the entire US it is not that much. Million is with an "M" not a "B" or worse yet a "T".

    And what do we get for that money. It helps make Ukraine less digestible by Russia, without actually pulling the US into the war. Russia could invade Ukraine, but with this tiny bit of help, it would be senselessly bloody to try to hold Ukraine. Hopefully, that will make Putin think twice about going to war.

    This is a good alternative to the US having to go to war to defend Ukraine. It is also a good alternative to surrendering any country that Putin wants to him.

    Corporate Media Is Thirsty For A New War

    Russia and Ukraine have repeatedly insisted against military escalation along their border, yet the U.S. is preparing to send troops to appease the usual congressional war hawks.
