Another good summary of things, from a different perspective looking more into the political connections.


Worth noting that, like mentioned on the video, Trump was impeached for a phone call to Ukraine. Meanwhile Biden not only has had the Laptop from Hell but now looks to be the President whose party ran a corruption scheme of a size only before seen with the Brazilian Petrolão corruption. There is more than enough reason to start a impeachment process and force Kamala Harris to be the unlikable face of the US Government, but of course the chances of the GOP even starting a impeachment, much less getting it going are pretty much zero given that the media will run 24/7 defense for Biden and some RINOs did get in on the scheme so they are not gonna help.

In Italy, we got Brothers of Italy (they are doing fine SO FAR) and Brazil returned to Lula... so probably you don't need a bubble to burst.

Zelenskyy Asks for Another $55 Billion to Pay for Budget, Infrastructure, Government Expenses and Pensions of Ukraine.


Has anyone stopped to ask why the United States taxpayer is responsible for funding the government operations of Ukraine, to include the paychecks and pensions of Ukrainian government officials, or nah?

As Joe Biden and various Democrat and Republican leaders are gleefully willing to keep pushing U.S. taxpayer money into Ukraine, there does come a time when we have to start asking some questions about the disconnect in regard to the opinion of the American people. Tucker Carlson noted this question last night.


Also, have you noticed a prominent Republican who has gone conveniently silent on this issue since he originally supported unlimited funding for Ukraine? Yeah, Ron DeSantis, funny that.

Washington DC – […] The White House last week asked Congress for more than $37 billion in additional assistance for Ukraine amid Russia’s ongoing invasion. And while some Republicans say they’re supportive of the amount, many more have been cautious to take a position just yet.



“It’s a lot of money. I think we’ll have to have an open discussion on it,” Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), top Republican on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security, said on Tuesday, shortly after the request was made public.

While there is broad support for Ukraine military assistance among Republicans in both chambers, there has also been resistance about other forms of aid and how it’s being accounted for. (read more)
BREAKING: Biden Admin Can’t Account for $20 Billion in Aid to Ukraine


As TGP reiterated earlier today, we really have no idea where billions sent to Ukraine landed. Now the Biden Administration is admitting this is the case.

We reported moments ago that we have no idea where the billions allocated to Ukraine eventually landed.

Since the war started, the US has sent more than $5o billion to Ukraine. Where has the money gone? We really don’t have any idea.

But we did get a clue recently with the fall of FTX. We learned that Ukraine was “investing” in FTX with money the US sent to Ukraine.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Tens of Billions of US Dollars Were Transferred to Ukraine and then Using FTX Crypto Currency the Funds Were Laundered Back to Democrats in US

This morning, according to FOX News:

Biden’s administration is scrambling to track the nearly $20 billion in military aid it has sent to Ukraine as Republicans warn of impending audits when they take control of the House in January.
Likely future House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has said his party will not be giving Ukraine a “blank check” to fend off Russia’s invasion. A potential audit would determine how much, if any, of the U.S. aid is ending up in the wrong hands. The Biden administration’s previous tracking efforts have inspected only a fraction of the aid provided to the country.
The Republican push to ramp up oversight enjoys some bipartisan support in Congress. Some staunch Ukraine allies fear the party will cut off aid to the country entirely, however.

We tried to warn everyone, but no; we were just Russian sympathizers spreading Russian propaganda.

Look, corruption in Ukraine is never going to be eliminated completely, even if the war will reduce it, and 20 billion is not that much compared to how much has gone to Ukraine, or how much they will need to rebuild.

Penny-pinching on Ukraine will not help anyone, and those who are skimming/engaging in corruption can be handled after the conflict, if they are not found and handled before that.

People need to realize Ukraine is going to be requiring what amounts to a full-on Lend Lease and Marshall Plan-level recovery situation till this war is over and till the damage is rebuilt.

Inflation will not get better if aid is cut to Ukraine.
