GOP Wants the Receipts for $113 Billion in Taxpayer Dollars Laundered Through Kiev

Trump tried to get to the the truth of Biden’s Ukraine corruption. And the Democrat party of treason impeached him for it. Don’t expect these criminals to cooperate.

GOP Wants the Receipts for $113 Billion in Taxpayer Dollars Laundered Through Kiev

By: Steven Ahle, Billings Report, February 24, 2023:

The chairman of the House Oversight Committee James Comer (R-KY) has written to Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and USAID Administrator Samantha Power.

He is compelling them to give him a full accounting of the $113 billion in cash we have sent to Ukraine. National Security spokesman John Kirby claimed not to have seen “any signs” of corruption in Ukraine.

This came just one day after President Zelensky fired several cabinet members for corruption.

Comer wrote:

“Came one day after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky fired several top Ukrainian officials amid a corruption scandal. Providing US taxpayer funds in a war zone come with an inherent risk of fraud, waste, and abuse.” “Unrealistic timelines and expectations that prioritize spending quickly lead to increased corruption.”

DoD, State, and USAID must now produce all documents relating to US funding to Ukraine by March 8, 2023. The letter was signed by republican Representatives including Jim Jordan, Nancy Mace, Andy Biggs, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert and Anna Paulina Luna.

Dear Secretary Austin, Secretary Blinken, and Administrator Power:

The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is conducting oversight of the federal government’s administration of U.S. taxpayer-funded assistance to Ukraine. Since Russia invaded Ukraine nearly a year ago, Congress has provided more than $113 billion for security, humanitarian, economic, and governance assistance.

It is critical that government agencies administering these funds ensure they are used for their intended purposes to prevent and reduce the risk of waste, fraud, and abuse. The Committee seeks documents and information to understand how the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of State (State), and the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) are conducting oversight of these funds.

On January 25, 2023, U.S. National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications, John Kirby claimed, “We have not seen any signs that our budgetary assistance has fallen prey to any kind of corruption in Ukraine,” and that all direct budgetary assistance, “goes through the World Bank.” Mr. Kirby continued, “I would go so far as to say the same on the security assistance side as well.”

These claims came one day after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky fired several top Ukrainian officials amid a corruption scandal. Ukrainian government officials allegedly engaged in bribery, used government vehicles for personal use, and purchased inflated food supplies for Ukrainian forces. In response, President Zelensky named a new Minister of Defense. Based on Mr. Kirby’s remarks, however, the U.S. National Security Council appears unaware of this corruption scandal, heightening concerns that U.S. agencies are not conducting oversight of taxpayer assistance to Ukraine.

Providing security and humanitarian assistance for warfighting and reconstruction purposes comes with an inherent risk of fraud, waste, and abuse. The United States must identify these risks and develop oversight mechanisms to mitigate them.

We learned from efforts in Afghanistan that the World Bank does not always have effective monitoring and accounting of funds, and often lacks transparency. We also learned that unrealistic timelines and expectations that prioritize spending quickly lead to increased corruption and reduced effectiveness of programs.

As the United States continues to filter assistance through multilateral organizations with pressure to spend funds quickly, we must ensure proper protections are in place to prevent the misuse of funds.

WATCH: House Judiciary Committee Hearing on the Border Security in Yuma, Arizona

Congressman Matt Gaetz, member of the House Judiciary Committee, and his fellow Republican members visited the Arizona border to talk with those who are directly with local officials. Their purpose was to determine if the Department of Homeland Security is even remotely interested in securing Arizona’s.

NOTE: Not a single Democrat on the Judiciary Committee accompanied their fellow committee members to the Arizona border to view the situation first hand.

WATCH: The Judiciary Committee meeting begins at the 28:00 minute mark.

In an email Congressman Gaetz states,

As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I had the opportunity this week to visit the U.S.-Mexico border near Yuma, Arizona. The committee held a field hearing in Yuma, listening to people in the community who are directly impacted by the Biden border crisis. American communities like this one are completely overwhelmed because of illegal immigration.

During the hearing, it was discovered that Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas deliberately lied to a Yuma County Supervisor and failed to close extensive gaps in the southern border. The Biden Administration must be held accountable for turning a blind eye and failing to secure our border.

Border communities are failing due to their destructive immigration policies. Our trip included a visit to a local hospital on the brink of collapse after spending $20 million on migrant care. Republicans should not be the only party igniting demands for asylum reforms, protecting the “Remain in Mexico” policy, finishing the wall, and unleashing the capabilities of our Border Patrol agents.

Watch a segment in which Congressman Gaetz speaks with local officials. In the video below Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines says DHS Secretary Mayorkas LIED to him and failed on his promise to close gaps on the Southern Border.

Woke Sec. Def. Austin: ‘Ukraine’s Going to Decide What Victory’ Will Look Like

Wednesday on NPR’s All Things Considered, woke Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin responded to questions on what would constitute a victory in the Ukraine-Russia war by stating that “Ukraine’s going to decide what victory’s going to look like.”

Asked how this war ends, Austin responded, “I think, again, we’re going to focus on what’s in front of us right now and put them in the best possible position to continue to be successful. And I think that will lead us to Ukraine being in a — again, a good place, whether or not the fighting continues or whether or not they decide to go to the negotiating table.”

Asked if Ukraine can achieve the goal of kicking all the Russians out of the country, Austin answered, “I don’t want to speculate at this point. I think my goal is to provide them the capabilities required to achieve their objectives. And that’s what [I] and the Chairman are going to continue to stay focused on.”

Asked specifically what the U.S. goal is, Austin responded, “Well, they can be driven out, or Putin can decide to take his forces back out of Ukraine because he’s in such a bad position, and that could happen as well. He could end this today, Ari. And we all know that this is — this war is happening because of one man, one man’s desire to erase his neighbor’s boundaries and occupy his neighbor’s territory, and this is, again, unjustified, unprovoked, and Putin could end this at any point in time in the future.”

Reporter Ari Shapiro concluded by asking, “If Russia were to retreat to where it was before the full-scale invasion a year ago — meaning it hangs onto Crimea, it remains in parts of eastern Ukraine — would the U.S. consider that a Ukrainian victory and urge Ukraine to end the war at that?”

Austin responded, “Ukraine’s going to decide what victory’s going to look like, Ari, and so I don’t want to speak for President Zelensky or the Ukrainian people. I think that’s for them to decide.”

We’re the ones funding Ukraine. We’d better decide for ourselves what victory for America looks like.

47% Blacks Say It’s Not OK To Be White

The poison fruit of the Democrat’s ruthless incitement to race hate. They want a race war. It’s evil. Pure evil.

‘It’s OK to be white,’ agree 72%, including 53% of black people

By Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist |February 22, 2023:

Voters are not buying into “woke” racial politics and anti-white attacks from liberals, according to a new survey on the simmering “it’s OK to be white” pushback.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey shared with Secrets, 72% agreed with the statement, “It’s OK to be white.” Even a majority of black people, 53%, agreed.

What’s more, when asked if voters agreed or disagreed with the statement, “Black people can be racist, too,” 79% agreed, including 66% of black people.

The survey appears to be a blow to the narrative in the liberal media and Hollywood that white people are the only racists and that being white is something people should be ashamed of……

Biden Gives ANOTHER HALF A BILLION DOLLARS To Ukraine, $0 To Ohio

That’s over 80 billion American taxpayer dollars to a corrupt money laundering dictatorship. NOTHING to the sick, the struggling  in toxic Ohio. Biden should stay in Ukraine and run for office there.

Biden Gives $500M In Aid To Ukraine, $0 To Ohio

By: Lucretia Hughes, February 22, 2023:

President Joe Biden has shown where his priorities lie after making a secret trip to war-torn Ukraine on Monday in support of Kyiv, and even announced a new $500 million aid package for the country, which includes shells for howitzers, anti-tank missiles, air surveillance radars and other aid.

That is rich considering the president has yet to visit East Palestine, Ohio after a train derailed earlier this month hauling toxic chemicals, which were then exploded into the air, water, and soil via a “controlled release,” creating a “Chernobyl” style catastrophe.

The ecological disaster has polluted water ways, including the Ohio River, and killed off a vast majority of fish and wildlife in the area. Nearby residents have even reported their pets dropping dead, and many in the area have had headaches and developed rashes.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine requested federal aid to deal with the disaster last week, yet Biden denied it. I guess now we know why….he needed to send half a billion to Ukraine instead.

Facebook caught ‘not just hosting,’ but creating pages for the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda

While Facebook shut down dissenting opinions regarding the COVID vaccine and continues to censor patriotic conservatives who reject the Left’s agenda by supporting Trump and free societies, the Big Tech giant has shown us who it thinks is deserving of its platform. Facebook has been caught creating pages for the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda. According to a watchdog group Tech Transparency Project (TTP): “The company [FB] could potentially be held responsible for these pages as Facebook not just hosting but actually creating them.”

BOMBSHELL: Facebook Caught Creating Pages for ISIS, Al-Qaeda

United with Israel, February 20, 2023:

Facebook is no stranger to controversy, permitting Jew-hatred to fester and giving a free pass to anti-Israel lies and antisemitic propaganda.

The social media giant is now in hot water due to the technology it uses to promote content, which a watchdog group called the Tech Transparency Project (TTP) says automatically creates home pages for U.S.-designated terror groups.

Among the TTP report’s bombshell findings is evidence alleging that Facebook created over 100 pages for ISIS (Islamic State), as well as pages for other terror organizations, including the group behind the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., Al-Qaeda.

TTP reported that Facebook creates the pages based on its algorithm, automatically generating them when users add the terror groups to their profiles. The platform’s so-called ban on the groups apparently did little to prevent the automatic process that generated the terror group pages.

“Some of these automatically generated pages have been living on Facebook for years, racking up likes and posts with terrorist propaganda and imagery,” reported the Jerusalem Post in its coverage of the TTP’s findings. “The company could potentially be held responsible for these pages as Facebook not just hosting but actually creating them.”

This is only the latest chapter in Facebook’s struggles to keep hate off its platform.

Over the last several years, Facebook has been a hotbed for anti-Israel lies and antisemitic propaganda.

At the end of 2022, a post with tens of thousands of likes on Facebook claimed that the Palestinians aren’t playing in the World Cup because Israel is “murdering” their players. The claim was demonstrably false and had zero basis in reality….

Putin Stops New START

Russian president Vladimir Putin declared Tuesday that Russia “is suspending its participation” in New START, a treaty between the U.S. and Russia limiting the deployment of long-range nuclear weapons. Putin blamed his decision on the West, which he claimed instigated the war in Ukraine: “[I]t was they who unleashed the war, and we used force to stop it.” On February 24, 2022, Russian forces invaded Ukraine, seeking at first to re-annex the fledgling democracy and, when that proved too difficult, to capture a large swath of territory.

“The Treaty between the United States of America and the Russian Federation on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms,” or New START, took effect in 2011 and was extended until 2026. It reduced the caps on Russian and American long-range nuclear weapons and gave both countries until 2018 to meet the new limits — which both countries did. Both countries’ nuclear forces are capped at:

  • 700 deployed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs), and heavy bombers;
  • 1,550 nuclear warheads on deployed ICBMs, SLBMs, and heavy bombers (each bomber counting as one warhead); and
  • 800 deployed and non-deployed ICBM launchers, SLBM launchers, and heavy bombers.

To ensure the other party is complying with the terms of the treaty, both nations may conduct 18 on-site inspections per year with limited notice, according to the terms of the treaty. Both nations reduced their armaments by 2018; the U.S. now has 659 deployed delivery systems, 1,420 deployed warheads, and 800 launcher systems, while Russia reportedly has 540 deployed delivery systems, 1,549 deployed warheads, and 759 launcher systems.

However, the treaty’s inspections provision has not been well-honored for more than two years. When COVID hit, both nations agreed to suspend inspections as a health precaution. Then in August 2022, Russia refused to restart the inspections because of U.S. sanctions over its invasion of Ukraine, which Russia claimed stopped its inspectors from entering the U.S. The U.S. uses satellites to monitor Russia’s nuclear arsenal.

Then on Tuesday, during his annual state of the nation address, Putin publicly adopted the suspended status of inspections as his official policy.

“The Western elite does not conceal their goal, which is to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia. It means to finish us forever and grow a local conflict into global opposition,” the aged president claimed. “The West uses Ukraine as a [battering] ram against Russia.”

Putin claimed that Western inspections of its nuclear weapons sites would aid the Ukrainian government (which he calls a Western puppet) in the current conflict. In late December, Russia shot down a Ukrainian drone flying toward Engels air base, from which Russia has launched air raids against Ukraine. Engels air base is approximately 400 miles from the front lines and houses strategic (nuclear-armed) bombers. This last fact, Putin suggested, justified suspending U.S. inspections after Ukraine’s attempted strike on the base.

New START is the latest iteration of a series of Cold War-era treaties that gradually thawed U.S.-Russia (then the U.S.S.R.) nuclear relations. By the late 1960s, both world superpowers had stockpiled enough nuclear weapons to destroy the world several times over, and had begun deploying missile defense systems which would only increase the arms race. Both enormous arsenals remained at hair-trigger alert primarily out of a lack of information about the other side’s intentions. The two countries began Strategic Arms Limitations Talks (SALT I and II) in 1969, with a first agreement signed in 1972 and a second agreement signed in 1979 which mostly kept both nuclear arsenals from expanding.

The U.S. and Russia also agreed to an Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) treaty in 1972, which limited the number of missile defense systems each country could deploy. After intense debate over how to replace SALT II (which expired in 1985), the U.S. and Russia signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Treaty (INF) in 1987, which required both countries to eliminate their intermediate-range arsenals and promise not to rebuild them. President Bush withdrew from the ABM treaty in 2002 over counter-terrorism concerns, while President Trump withdrew from the INF treaty in 2017 over Russia’s blatant violations.

In 1994, the U.S. and Russia signed the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START I), in which they agreed not only to cap their long-range nuclear arsenals but also substantially reduce them. The 2003 Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty (SORT) reduced nuclear arsenals even further, and New START, ratified in 2011, reduced them still further.

Every president since Lyndon Johnson — Republican and Democrat — has pursued the same basic policy regarding nuclear arms control with Russia. Since the late ’60s, every U.S. administration has determined that 1) It’s convenient to limit Russia’s nuclear arsenal; 2) It’s wise to verify their compliance with treaty commitments, and 3) Limiting ourselves to a reasonable, manageable nuclear arsenal is a small price to pay to achieve the first two ends. While New START had critics on the Right, they mostly objected to the treaty’s terms — they wanted a stronger treaty, or one that included China — and not its basic idea.

Despite the lapse from 1985-1994 in a treaty on long-range nuclear weapons, the U.S. and Russia (or the U.S.S.R.) have been negotiating such agreements more or less continually since 1969. That changed with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. First, the U.S. suspended talks in response to the invasion. Then in late November, Russia indefinitely postponed talks scheduled for that week.

Now, Russia has suspended its involvement in the treaty altogether. Putin’s official suspension of New START marks the first time since the Vietnam War that the U.S. and Russia have neither a treaty or talks to govern their management of long-range nuclear weapons, capable of striking the other power’s heartland.

Russia has repeatedly threatened the West that it is willing to use a nuclear weapon in its effort to conquer Ukraine, a move experts fear might escalate into a global nuclear war. Now, Putin has officially suspended the U.S.’s only means for oversight and accountability.

“We’ll be watching carefully to see what Russia actually does,” said Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on Tuesday. “We’ll, of course, make sure that in any event we are postured appropriately for the security of our own country and that of our allies.”

WWIII: China’s President Xi Preparing to Visit Moscow

The Wall Street Journal just reported that Chinese leader Xi Jinping is preparing to visit Moscow for a summit with Russia’s president in the coming months, according to people familiar with the plan, as Vladimir Putin wages war in Ukraine and portrays himself as a standard-bearer against a U.S.-led global order.

America’s worst nightmare. The Dow dropped 500 points on the news.

“A Russia-China axis would be not just more powerful than the United States, but much more powerful. It would have the scale to control a lot of the world’s economy and trade routes and raw materials. It could project military force that posturing aside, we actually don’t have the power to stop. If Russia and China ever got together, it would be a brand-new world and the United States would be greatly diminished.”

Tucker Carlson Outlines Ukraine Conflict, China Alignment with Russia and Contrast of Ukraine Spending Against Crisis in Ohio

By:  | Sundance | February 21, 2023

In his opening monologue Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson outlined the insufferable Ukraine narrative and the geopolitical consequences that will flow from the outcome of foreign policy.

Additionally, Carlson contrasts the difference in DC priority for financially assisting Ukraine while places like East Palestine, Ohio, suffer a catastrophic toxic chemical disaster.


Tucker Carlson explains the implications:

People used to tell you that Donald Trump was stupid. Remember that? “He’s an idiot!” Now, we’re not going to sit here and tell you it was a smart idea to turn the White House over to Jared Kushner; it was not. But it’s also true if we’re being honest – and we should be – that Donald Trump had far wiser instincts about American foreign policy than any leader in at least a generation, and he did it without the help of anyone.

None of his advisers wanted to hear his views on foreign policy. In fact, they desperately wanted Trump to be quiet, but Trump wouldn’t. “What’s the point of NATO?,” he asked nearly 30 years after the fall of the Soviet Union. No one in Washington could answer him. Shut up, racist, they replied, but Trump just kept going in his Trumpy way. “Why would we fight Russia?” he wondered. “Wouldn’t making Russia our enemy just drive Putin into the arms of China and create the most powerful and dangerous anti-American bloc in history?”

No one bothered to answer him. In fact, for the sin of asking, they called him a traitor to his country. They impeached him for it, and then they started a war with Putin. But in retrospect, Trump had asked a deeply patriotic question: If Russia ever joined forces with China, American global hegemony, its power would end instantly. You’d have the world’s largest land mass and largest natural gas reserves, allied with the world’s largest population and world’s largest economy.

So, a Russia-China axis would be not just more powerful than the United States, but much more powerful. It would have the scale to control a lot of the world’s economy and trade routes and raw materials. It could project military force that posturing aside, we actually don’t have the power to stop. If Russia and China ever got together, it would be a brand-new world and the United States would be greatly diminished. Most Americans agree that would be bad.

Now, as Donald Trump predicted very clearly, that is happening. Thanks to Joe Biden’s reckless and self-destructive response to the invasion of Ukraine a year ago this week, the economies of Russia and China are intertwined. Chinese spending on Russian goods has increased by more than 60%. China now imports more coal from Russia than it has in the last five years. Chinese shipments to Russia, meanwhile, are up by nearly 30%.

Companies like Ford and Toyota pulled out of Russia. They had to. Remember that? So, what happened next? Chinese automakers stepped in. Chinese carmakers once made less than 10% of all cars bought in Russia. Now, China makes a third of them and you can see where this is going. The same thing has happened with smartphones and countless other consumer goods. Not surprisingly, the Chinese yuan is replacing the dollar in Moscow. Chinese currency now accounts for fully one fifth of all trades on the Moscow Stock Exchange. That’s up from less than 1% last year.

So, these are deep and growing economic ties and they’re formal. The thing about economic ties, however, is that they lead inexorably to military ties. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that China is actively helping Russia in the war against NATO, which we are leading. In other words, the country with more ships than any navy in the world has united with a country that has more nuclear armed ICBMs than any country in the world to fight us through proxy in Ukraine.

Well, that’s scary, and the thing is, everybody involved seems to know it’s scary and just how scary it is. Our leaders understand that their push for total war with Putin, which is unnecessary, could lead to the destruction of the West. They know that, but they’re doing it anyway. In an interview with a German newspaper today, the Ukrainian President Zelenskyy casually mentioned that, oh, by the way, the entire world may soon go up in flames: “if China aligns itself with Russia, there will be a world war.”

There will be a world war if China aligns with Russia? Who could say something like that calmly, since as we just told you, China is aligned with Russia? It’s already happened. That’s not speculation. It’s a fact. And as a result of that fact, according to Zelenskyy himself, hundreds of millions of people will die. No big deal. As long as we take Crimea. This is a very dark way of thinking.

Zelenskyy himself is a very dark force. That is obvious if you watch him. It is unmistakable. Who could not see that? This man is a destroyer. He banned a Christian faith in his country and arrested nuns and priests. Oh, but he’s a hero, claim our leaders from Chuck Schumer to Mitch McConnell. No, Zelenskyy is not a hero. He is an instrument of total destruction. That is not a defense of his enemies. It’s just true and maybe that’s why Joe Biden is drawn to him. Biden landed in Kyiv today to promote another world war.

Note the air raid sirens in the background. What’s strange is there didn’t seem to be any air raids in Kyiv this morning. We checked. There were just air raid sirens at precisely the moment that Joe Biden appeared for a photo op. Even CNN’s reporters on the ground in Kyiv know that they’ve been in the city for the past five days and didn’t hear any bombs or missile strikes or any sirens until the moment that Biden walked out for the cameras.

REPORTER: I’ve been here for the past five days. I have not heard any explosions. I have not heard any air sirens until about half an hour ago, right when President Biden was in the center of Kyiv.

Right. So, here you have Potemkin air raid sirens, just the touch required in this, the most tightly scripted, most completely dishonest war in history, the fakest war and the point, of course, is to sell Americans on yet another $500 million in tax dollars for Ukraine for the Zelenskyy government. Watch this.

PRESIDENT BIDEN: We’ve committed nearly 700 tanks and thousands of armored vehicles, 1,000 artillery systems, more than 2 million rounds of artillery ammunition, more than 50 advanced launch rocket systems, anti-ship and air defense systems, all defending to defend Ukraine and that doesn’t count the other half a billion dollars we’re going to be, we’re announcing with you today and tomorrow. That’s going to be coming your way and that’s just the United States in this piece.

Chemical and Biological Military Activities

“In the field of biological weapons, there is almost no prospect of detecting a pathogen until it has been used in an attack.” —  Barton Gellman, author and journalist

“I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. We have definitely adopted the position at the Peace Conference of arguing in favour of the retention of gas as a permanent method of warfare. It is sheer affectation to lacerate a man with the poisonous fragment of a bursting shell and to boggle at making his eyes water by means of lachrymatory gas.” —  Winston Churchill

“We knew the world would not be the same.  A few people laughed, a few people cried.  Most people were silent.” —  J. Robert Oppenheimer, recalling in a 1965 documentary how he felt after watching the Trinity Test

Previously, I’ve mentioned how my mama used to read the Chicago Tribune to me after we ate dinner.  She started my political education when I was four or five years old and sat me atop the pink Formica table to listen.  I recall several articles, but one is easily remembered because my mother became so angry.  She read a small paragraph in the back of the then conservative Tribune; this was 1950-1951.  It stated that the government had sprayed a flu virus over the area where we lived to see how it traveled.

The American people have always been used as guinea pigs for the US government.  And we still are!

From the Protective Altruism Forum by Thomas W., is the history of chemical and bacteriological experiments on American citizens.  (Worth the full read!)

In September of 1950, a ship sailed by the Golden Gate Bridge. It carried a stockpile of Serratia marcescens bacteria, which it released in a huge plume over the city of San Francisco. Those onboard hoped to expose as many people as possible to the bacteria. Their mission was a success, and most of the city’s residents were exposed. 

The ship was not operated by a hostile foreign government or terrorist operatives, but by the United States Navy. Though Serratia marcescens is a “simulant” bacterium not known to cause harm, the test showed the potential for attacks with more deadly forms of bacteria. [1] Despite the “benign” nature of the bacterium, Stanford University doctors reported several bizarre cases of urinary tract infections at the time, leading eventually to one death.[2] The test was far from the only biological weapons test conducted in secrecy by the U.S. government from World War II until as late as 1968.

And 1968 wasn’t the end of the experiments, biological, chemical or medical.

Inside America’s Secret Biolabs written in 2015 by Alison Young and Nick Penzenstadler for USA Today, states:

Vials of bioterror bacteria have gone missing. Lab mice infected with deadly viruses have escaped, and wild rodents have been found making nests with research waste. Cattle infected in a university’s vaccine experiments were repeatedly sent to slaughter and their meat sold for human consumption. Gear meant to protect lab workers from lethal viruses such as Ebola and bird flu has failed, repeatedly.

Oversight of biological research labs is fragmented, often secretive and largely self-policing, the investigation found. And even when research facilities commit the most egregious safety or security breaches — as more than 100 labs have — federal regulators keep their names secret.

Of particular concern are mishaps occurring at institutions working with the world’s most dangerous pathogens in biosafety level 3 and 4 labs — the two highest levels of containment that have proliferated since the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001. Yet there is no publicly available list of these labs, and the scope of their research and safety records are largely unknown to most state health departments charged with responding to disease outbreaks. Even the federal government doesn’t know where they all are, the Government Accountability Office has warned for years.

And all those contrails.  Why in the world are they constantly spraying us? Video link. Unless you grow vegetables in a greenhouse, the spraying actually kills the plants with a fungal rot that starts at the roots.


The investment into weapons of infectious diseases has been promulgated since WWII.  The Wuhan National Institute of Virology (WIV) is nothing new. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) has openly admitted we have exactly the same thing in the United States and it is run by the Department of Defense (DoD).

We know the origins of C-19 were here at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  Peter Daszak used scientific and professional connections to convince media and government officials of natural Covid-19 origins. He even secretly organized a statement in the prestigious medical journal, the Lancet, deeming the lab origin a “conspiracy theory.” Ralph Baric PhD, professor in the UNC epidemiology department was allowed to continue his “gain of function” work until it was transferred to the WIV with funding by the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) through Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance.

Since its inception in 1994, the Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD Center) has been at the forefront of research on the implications of same for U.S. security. Originally focusing on threats to the military, the WMD Center now also applies its expertise and body of research to the challenges of homeland security.

Biological and Chemical Weapons

The nuclear arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union was a prominent feature of the Cold War. A lesser known but equally dangerous element of the superpower competition involved biological weapons (BW), living microorganisms that cause fatal or incapacitating diseases in humans, animals, or plants. By the late 1960s, the United States and the Soviet Union had both acquired advanced BW capabilities.

The U.S. biological weapons complex, operated by the U.S. Army Chemical Corps, consisted of a research and development laboratory at Fort Detrick in Maryland, an open-air testing site at Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, and a production facility at Pine Bluff Arsenal in Arkansas that manufactured biological warfare agents and loaded them into bomblets, bombs, and spray tanks.

Soon after President Richard M. Nixon took office in January 1969, Members of Congress pressured the administration to clarify U.S. policies on the use of chemical and biological weapons (CBW), as there had been no comprehensive review of this issue in more than 15 years.  Here is the chronology from 1969 to 1997.

Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird decided to address the series of controversies that had been swirling around the Army’s Chemical Biological Weapons (CBW) programs.

A number of highly publicized events had sparked controversy over chemical weapons (CW), which were closely associated with biological weapons in the public mind.

Dugway Proving Ground was established during WWII where the US Army had been conducting testing.  In March 1968, an open-air test of the nerve agent VX had gone awry, causing the toxic cloud to drift off the test range and kill or injure more than 6,000 sheep in an adjacent grazing area.  That test came to be called, “The Skull Valley Sheep Kill.”  The farmers received remuneration for their losses, but an investigation by the US Army found that lethal chemical agents tested in Dugway on March 13, 1968, “may have” contributed to the sheep deaths.

Sound familiar?  Remember Agent Orange in Vietnam?

The Army had also secretly been disposing of obsolete and leaking chemicals by transporting them by train across the country and then scuttling them at sea.

Ultimately, President Nixon’s decision to renounce the U.S. offensive biological weapons program culminated in his signing of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) on April 10, 1972, the same day as Iran.

In recognition of these dangers, he continued, the United States had decided to destroy its entire stockpile of biological agents and confine its future biological research program to defensive measures, such as vaccines and field detectors.

The Convention bans bioweapon agents, toxins, equipment and the means of delivery. However, The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological, Biological and Toxic Weapons does not ban biodefense weapons.

It is doubtful the signees of the convention truly stopped their research inasmuch as no one is tasked to oversee compliance and countries rarely keep the honor system.

China has accused us of having 336 bioweapon labs in 30 countries under U.S. control, including 26 in Ukraine.  Just how many does China have?

Ohio Train Derailment, Chemical Spill and Fire

Ohio is rich Midwest farmland and is one of the states with a large number of organic farms. East Palestine, Ohio is also the home of over 30 meat processing plants.  Close by in Columbus, Ohio is one of the largest heirloom seed companies.

I lived in Ohio for many years.  It is a beautiful state, and part of our own breadbasket for America.  Was it targeted?  Was it planned?  Interestingly enough, a movie with the same plot was filmed nearby only a year ago.

If you doubt we’re fighting a war against communists and fascists, please read my previous two articles.  Here and Here.

The latest chemical nightmare, after the Pfizer, Moderna and J&J poisons, is the Ohio train derailment.  The toxins allowed in the air, water and soil have already killed birds, chickens, a man’s foxes and heaven knows how many pets and wildlife.  The map shows the areas affected via air and water pollution.

For more information as to how deadly this derailment truly is to those in the area, please see The Conservative Treehouse articles here and here.  There are videos within which show the total and complete devastation of what happened.

Sundance states, “In an Ohio town called East Palestine, a Norfolk Southern train pulling 150 cars derailed. 20 of those cars were carrying hazardous materials, including a liquified substance called ‘Vinyl Chloride.’”

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said on Monday, February 13th, that Norfolk Southern requested and was granted the controlled release of chemicals, including deadly vinyl chloride, following the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio.  Norfolk Southern, whose top shareholders include BlackRock and Vanguard, told the government how they wanted this disaster handled.

Isn’t it interesting that only 11 days before this tragic derailment, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) changed the toxicity for vinyl chloride?

The railroad and the EPA released the full list of chemicals that were being transported.  Norfolk Southern did the “controlled breach” by starting the fires allegedly so the containers would not blow up. New footage has surfaced, in just a few days, of contaminated water in and around East Palestine, Ohio. Despite Governor DeWine’s statements reassuring Ohioans that the water is safe to drink, the chemical contamination is visible.

Here is the East Palestine Ohio Train Disaster in Numbers.  The following is from JTrudels Substack page.

  • 50 rail cars derailed on 3 February 23rd.
  • 11 rail cars carried hazardous materials.
  • 5 rail cars released Vinyl Chloride, a flammable, colorless liquified gas that causes liver, brain, and lung cancers.
  • 28-degree Celsius/82-degree Fahrenheit is required for Vinyl Chloride to become slightly water soluble.
  • One waterway was directly impacted, the Leslie Run. It feeds the Little Beaver Creek, a tributary to the Ohio River.
  • One billion plus animals of varying types, livestock and wildlife, depend on these waterways for life.
  • None of the waterway have ever hit a sustained 82 degrees F in human history.
  • 3500 fish and aquatic animals have died in the Leslie Run in the past week.
  • Almost all small livestock have died in East Palestine since Friday, 10 February 23, especially poultry.
  • 4800 residents call East Palestine home.
  • 94% of the residents are white
  • 81% of the 74 million Americans who depend on the Ohio River and associated waterways including the Mississippi for water for themselves and/or their livestock are white.
  • Zero FEMA officials have arrived in East Palestine as of 15 February 23.

Trudel states, “This does not appear to be an accident.  It appears to be genocide.”

A good portion of Ohio may be ruined for decades.  Link  The people who lived in that town are most likely about to lose everything, including their health.  Gov. DeWine told them it was safe to go home, but it obviously is not.  DeWine should be forced to live out the remainder of his term in East Palestine, Ohio.

EPA Administrator, Michael Regan, who visited the town on Thursday the 16th, asked the people to “trust the government.”

Yeah right, in your dreams.  President Reagan made a statement in the 1980s about “trusting the government.”

Has the EPA even checked the water, air or soil?  The EPA is also telling everyone it’s fine to return home.  The Environmental Protection Agency is more concerned about cow farts than the vinyl chloride poisoning of a third of America’s air, water and soil.

Where is FEMA to help these people and their animals?

Where is Biden?  Out to lunch 24/7!

Trump decides he’ll visit East Palestine and all of a sudden FEMA says they’ll show up.

These families all need new homes, new places to live, health checks, and new vehicles.  Where’s the federal funds to help them?

How about it President Trump?  You can get donations to give enough to all of these families to rebuild in  healthier environments that aren’t poisoned for the next century.

Glenn Beck interviewed a lady who lived there, and had a dog kennel and horses and had to evacuate all of them as well.  Needless to say, any animals left behind didn’t make it.  Crews conducted a “controlled spill” of these deadly chemicals.  Controlled?  Controlled to kill?  How insane is that to release a poisonous chemical into water and ground and then set it on fire?


I’ve heard another take on this from veterans who have handled some of these dangerous chemicals.

One said, This looks more like gross stupidity (way too many hazardous cars on a single train) and greed.  What was criminal was burying the damaged cars right in town without any attempt to decontaminate the entire wreck site and town.  The Governor received mucho campaign money from Norfolk Southern.  DeWine is complicit in that.  He ordered that burn so Norfolk Southern could relay track to get other trains moving.

That incident was awful, but I’m skeptical that there’s going to be a mass “Die Off” of the entire NE US.  There is much fear mongering going on, some very legitimate (especially for those near that town and along the Ohio River) wild speculation unsupported by hard data.

There have been half a dozen derailments and chemical burns in the last few weeks.  Coincidence?  Doubtful.  I’m just reporting what I’ve read, heard and seen.

Pray for these people, and if there’s a collection for them, give what you can.

Texas Border Operation Catches 348,000 Illegal Immigrants, 361 million Lethal Fentanyl Doses

In the absence of adequate federal enforcement a Texas border security initiative heavily criticized by Democrats and the media has apprehended hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants—including thousands of criminals—and seized millions of lethal doses of fentanyl. Known as Operation Lone Star, the project was launched by Governor Greg Abbott in March 2021 as the illegal immigration crisis gripped his border state. Essentially the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Texas National Guard are picking up the slack for the federal government, which is charged with protecting the famously porous southern border.

Texas had to take charge to combat the smuggling of people and drugs, the governor’s office wrote in the 2021 press release announcing Operation Lone Star, which integrates DPS with the Texas National Guard and deploys air, ground, marine and tactical border security assets to high threat areas to prevent Mexican cartels and other criminal elements from smuggling drugs and humans into the state. “The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” Abbott said at the time. The governor’s office assures that the operation continues to fill the “dangerous gaps left by the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border.” Every arrested individual and every ounce of drugs seized by Operation Lone Star would have otherwise made their way into communities across the nation due to the president’s open border policies, Texas officials point out.

The most recent figures, released just days ago, show that Operation Lone Star is succeeding despite detractors on the left. Since the multi-agency effort was launched more than 348,000 illegal immigrants have been apprehended and over 24,000 criminals have been arrested. DPS has also seized a startling number of drugs, over 361 million lethal doses of fentanyl. “Texas has also bused more than 9,100 migrants to our nation’s capital since April, over 5,200 migrants to New York City since August 5, more than 1,500 migrants to Chicago since August 31, and more than 890 migrants to Philadelphia since November 15,” the state announcement reveals. The document offers specific Operation Lone Star cases that prevented the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and humans into Texas.

The crisis along the southwest border is unprecedented and has created a tremendous threat to national security. The latest government stats show a drop in monthly illegal immigrant crossings that carries little weight since it is a decrease from the record-highs that have prevailed during the Biden administration. The stats show that U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended 128,000 illegal immigrants in January 2023 and federal agents at crossing ports prevented an additional 28,000 migrants from entering the country. Considering illegal immigration records have been shattered under Biden, the latest monthly figure is not bad. In his first year as president, federal agents apprehended 1,659,206 illegal immigrants at the southwest border, breaking the previous high of 1,643,679 in 2000. To put things in perspective, during Donald Trump’s last year as president federal agents arrested 400,651 illegal aliens along the Mexican border.

But as the Biden presidency progresses, the crisis worsens. Fiscal year 2022 also started with a bang, a 137% increase in the first quarter over the final quarter of 2021. By the end of 2022, the Border Patrol arrested a record-breaking 2.4 million migrants, up from an already shocking high of 1.7 million in 2021. Among the apprehended were hundreds of gang members—mostly from the famously violent Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13)—and dozens of people on the national terrorist watchlist. Federal agents also confiscated thousands of pounds of drugs, mainly methamphetamine. The unprecedented numbers depict a chaotic Mexican border region rife with lawlessness that has inevitably seeped north into many parts of the United States. At least Texans have Operation Lone Star to help compensate for the federal government’s ongoing failures.

University of Arizona: Muslim killed prof he thought was Jewish, antisemitic aspects of killing were downplayed

In this article about how the antisemitic aspects of the killing were denied or downplayed, the far-Left Forward doesn’t dare consider the question of what made Murad Dervish so violently antisemitic. That kind of investigation might end up being “Islamophobic.” Can’t have that.

Did everyone miss an antisemitic campus murder?

by Arno Rosenfeld, Forward, February 15, 2023:

Here are some facts. On Yom Kippur, a former University of Arizona graduate student named Murad Dervish stormed into the earth sciences building on campus. Dervish believed Thomas Meixner, the hydrology department head, was leading a Jewish conspiracy against him. “Kikes should not be allowed to exist anywhere, ever,” Dervish had previously told one faculty member. Dervish allegedly shot and killed Meixner. It was the only such murder in 2022, a year full of antisemitism. It escaped widespread attention until after Thanksgiving.

But there are other facts, too. Meixner wasn’t Jewish. Dervish’s original grievance was over a bad grade. The 46-year-old had a long history of violence, including against his parents, and scared some faculty to the point they had avoided campus. His antisemitism didn’t become public until weeks after the murder, when it was revealed alongside a tirade against Asians. And the national spotlight that Jewish groups eventually shined on the Tucson school? Some local Jews say it made things worse.

Many outside the region came to see the murder of Meixner, a beloved teacher and father of four, as a blatant act of antisemitism. It landed on the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s list of worst antisemitic incidents of the year, and was widely covered by Jewish media in the United States and Israel. It required — and received — a Jewish response. Yet many Jews on campus saw something more layered and grew frustrated when outsiders began to publicize the case without acknowledging its complexity.

Abigail Simon, a Jewish engineering student, noted that the story went national at a time when Jews are increasingly nervous about antisemitism on campus, and surmised that they might draw conclusions about fresh incidents without much thought.

“I hate to make it seem like people were jumping on a bandwagon,” Simon said. “But I think it was just another drop in the bucket that, ‘Oh, there was a murder on campus,’ and, ‘Oh, the shooter was antisemitic.’”

Though Dervish’s antisemitism, and the location of the shooting, across the street from Hillel, prompted a rapid and thorough response from Tuscon’s Jewish community, their efforts drew little attention as the news of the murder spread. Local Jews also understood that the part of the tragedy that most upset faculty and students was that Meixner and others had repeatedly warned school officials that Dervish posed a threat and they had failed to act. Focusing on antisemitism, some feared, might overstate the role it played in Meixner’s death, and present Jews as more endangered than they actually were.

Outside Jewish groups that tried to draw attention to the case countered that there was nothing subtle about Dervish’s bigotry — no matter what role other factors played in his violence — and point out that antisemitism can operate in strange ways: Its victims often aren’t Jewish.

A grand jury indicted Dervish on seven charges, including first-degree murder, in October. Dervish has pleaded not guilty and his trial is scheduled for September. Judge Howard Fell declined his attorney’s request to ban media from the courtroom.

“Justice grows the best in the full light of day,” Fell said.

A murder, and a revelation
When the shooting first took place, Simon and other students gathered at the campus Hillel for High Holiday programming only knew that something very bad had happened. The scream of police sirens had interrupted a text study. And, a different student recalled, what seemed like the entire campus police department came to a screeching halt outside the academic building across the street.

It turned out that the police had responded too late, allowing Dervish to escape. Hillel went into lockdown. Simon remembered feeling grateful that Hillel had hired armed security guards for the High Holidays. Everyone gathered in the lounge. “We were all sitting in this one room trying to act like things were normal, but obviously nothing was,” said Jordyn Morris, another student present that day.

Dervish was arrested several hours later on a highway outside of Tucson with knives, machetes, guns and extra ammunition. Another bombshell would come two weeks later, when a local newspaper columnist published an interview with Eyad Atallah, a lecturer in the hydrology department, who — the headline said — “prepared to be shot on campus and barely avoided it.”

Tim Steller, the Arizona Daily Star columnist, revealed that Atallah and other faculty members had been hounded for months by Dervish, who was convinced that a bad grade he received was the result of a Jewish conspiracy against him.

“As Arabs we’re supposed to stick together and I trusted you, and instead you’re a filthy kike lover,” Dervish had texted Atallah last winter.

It wasn’t the point of his article, but based on those messages, Steller was the first to suggest that Meixner’s murder was driven by bigotry against Jews. “Although Meixner was Catholic, his killing could be considered an antisemitic attack,” Steller wrote on Oct. 22.

The column emphasized that university officials were aware of the threats. They had expelled Dervish and banned him from campus, but he kept returning with impunity. And nobody thought to tell Jewish leaders on campus, or in Tucson, that a man who had menaced faculty — to the point several had started working from home out of fear — was blaming his problems on Jews.

After the column was published, Jessica McCormick, director of the campus Hillel, emailed Robert Robbins, the university president. Why, McCormick asked, had the administration failed to notify Hillel of Dervish’s antisemitic comments? Why hadn’t law enforcement protected the Hillel building while Dervish was on the loose? Why hadn’t any school officials reached out after the shooting?…

Dervish had been a volatile presence on campus since he enrolled at the school in the fall of 2021. He screamed obscenities at a professor in the middle of class, and after he lost his graduate assistant teaching job as a result, he sent threats that terrified hydrology faculty so much that they moved classes to Zoom. Expelled and banned from campus last February, he kept coming back, and accosted a professor at a nearby CVS. Dervish threatened an employee at the dean’s office: “I don’t think you have any clue who you are dealing with but you are about to find out and I really don’t think you’re going to like it,” he wrote. Meanwhile, he was sexually harassing a female undergraduate student — the same thing he was accused of in San Diego — contacting her more than 30 times….

McConnell’s Ukraine Obsession Further Illustrates His Disregard For The Plights Of Everyday Americans

I agree with this article below! We should stop shoveling $$$ to Ukraine unless and until it is proven to the American taxpayer that U.S. national interests are at jeopardy. We also should be assured there is absolute accountability for the over $100 Billion already sent to Ukraine in cash. Furthermore, it should be explained how the $Bs worth of modern US warfighting equipment sent to Ukraine which will require replacement taking 5 or more years has impacted our own Defense capabilities.

I don’t buy the lame argument that if we don’t stop Russia in Ukraine, it will embolden the Chinese to invade Taiwan. The Obama3/Beijing Joe Biden administration has already emboldened Communist China towards their goal of world domination and outpacing the US as the leading super power. Following are a few examples of how they no longer fear the U.S. as they did under the Trump administration:

  1. The Biden family has been enriched with $ millions in gifts from the CCP.
  2. The PENN-BIDEN Center was funded by $54 M in Chinese donations and recent TS documents discovered in a closet there shows their influence.
  3. The Biden DOD has shown they are totally incompetent in dealing with Chinese incursions over US airspace and installations with the recent Spy Balloon incident.
  4. The CCP has infiltrated our institutions, research facilities, corporations and even the federal govt in many areas
  5. The CCP is unchecked in buying up American farmland, ports and other assets
  6. China still enjoys most favorable nation status and surplus trade agreements which Trump was curbing.

Furthermore, the corrupt Ukrainian President, Zelenskyy along with socialist Democrats and warmongering neocon, globalist Republicans like McConnell, Graham and Romney don’t want peace and have rejected efforts towards a cease fire which Israel and others have attempted to negotiate.

Why is all this more important than securing our own Southern Border which has put our country’s sovereignty and safety in dire jeopardy as millions of illegal aliens stream across our border including terrorists, drug dealers, human traffickers, and other criminals?

McConnell’s Ukraine Obsession Further Illustrates His Disregard For The Plights Of Everyday Americans

With a faltering economy, a wide open southern border, imminent national security threats from the Chinese government, and radical leftists trying to co-opt unsuspecting kids into their social movements, the United States under the “leadership” of President Joe Biden is in a tailspin. So naturally, out-of-touch swamp creatures such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell felt it was appropriate to remind us plebs about what’s really important: Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

While donning his infamous Ukrainian flag-colored tie during his Thursday appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” the Kentucky Republican arrogantly regurgitated the most tone-deaf statement imaginable by claiming that “defeating the Russians in Ukraine is the single most important event going on in the world right now.”

“It will save us an enormous amount of money down the road if the Ukrainians can succeed,” McConnell baselessly opined.

It’s no secret in Washington that McConnell is obsessed with shipping endless amounts of taxpayer money to Ukraine — the second most corrupt country in Europe — with virtually no oversight. So much so that his blue and yellow tie has become the GOP equivalent of Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits.

But maybe I’m being too hard on McConnell. I mean, it’s not like America’s own borders are being overrun by millions of illegal aliens or the U.S. economy is in free fall — with skyrocketing inflation making it harder for Americans to afford basic necessities, such as food and gas.

Northern Border Agents Were Asked To Deploy To Florida Due To Massive Illegal Migrant Surge

Agents patrolling the northern border were asked to deploy to Florida due to a large surge in illegal migrants in recent months, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told the Daily Caller News Foundation Friday.

The Miami sector has seen increasing flows of illegal migrants with a surge of hundreds of them reaching the Florida coast in a matter of days in early January, when U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recorded more than 1,300 migrant encounters. For the last few months, agents stationed along the northern border have been dealing with their own migrant surge and deployments to address another surge at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“While the southwest border with Mexico continues to be the most problematic area for border security, Biden has made it possible for people and cartels to exploit weakness on all our borders including our coastal borders and northern border. Robbing Peter to pay Paul by moving resources from one area to another is, and has never been the answer, while it might help one area, it weakens the area the agents vacated. This Administration has proven it has little ability and care to protect our borders thereby safeguarding US Citizens,” Judd told the DCNF.

Border Patrol agents stationed along the U.S.-Canadian border, who requested anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak, confirmed to the DCNF that they were asked to volunteer.

“What’s next?” one of the agents told the DCNF. “We’re all being stretched pretty thin.”

“The situation in Florida isn’t uncommon. However, it wasn’t consistent as it has appeared to be recently. Once the boats started showing up consistently, and with hundreds of apprehensions per vessel, the need for additional agents brought about the requests for agents who wanted to volunteer to deploy down to Miami Sector,” a second northern border agent told the DCNF.

The situation has also led Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to send in additional state resources, including the National Guard, and declare an emergency. In one instance, two cruise ships in the area came to the rescue.

CBP told the DCNF that it had deployed additional resources to address Florida’s influx of illegal migrants.

“Due to maritime migrant fluctuations in Florida, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has deployed additional Border Patrol and Air and Marine Agents to the south Florida area of operations. These additional resources along with our integrated collaboration with our federal, state, and key stakeholders, allows for a rapid and efficient response to any increase in migratory flows. CBP seeks to deter and disrupt human smuggling activities by transnational criminal organizations and ensure our personnel are properly equipped to maintain border security,” a CBP spokesperson said.

Rubio Bill Would Restrict Gender-Confused from Military Service

On Thursday, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) introduced legislation that would prevent individuals who identify as transgender or who have gender dysphoria from serving in the military, with some exceptions. Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) introduced companion legislation in the House. The lawmakers have emphasized that the bill’s purpose is to help the Pentagon stay focused on “military readiness” and not on complications that ensue from gender confusion in the ranks.

“The military has strict standards for who can and cannot qualify to serve,” said Rubio in a press release. “For example, under President Biden, you can’t serve with a peanut allergy. Biden has turned our military into a woke social experiment. It is a stupid way to go about protecting our nation. We need to spend more time thinking about how to counter threats like China, Russia, and North Korea and less time thinking about pronouns.”

The Ensuring Military Readiness Act would build on the requirements that former President Trump issued in 2018 that barred those with gender dysphoria or who were undergoing gender transition procedures from enlisting. Five days into his presidency, Biden rescinded the order. Rubio’s bill would restore the Trump-era regulations by restricting those who actively identify as transgender, who seek or have already undergone gender reassignment surgery, or who have a history or have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria.

Exceptions to the rule for troops with a history gender dysphoria include those who have been stable in their biological sex for 36 months prior to joining and those who are already serving and remain deployable according to the standards of their biological sex (who may receive medically necessary treatment, which would exclude transition surgery and hormone therapy).

Banks identified the need for the military to uphold its medical standards in order to ensure battle readiness.

“Americans who were treated for ADHD in the past two years must receive a waiver to enlist,” said Banks. “Our military holds recruits to stringent medical standards for a reason and the Biden administration’s special carveout for those suffering from gender dysphoria was purely political. Our bill ensures that [the] DOD puts lethality and readiness before far-left ideology.”

Research shows that allowing individuals who actively identify as transgender and who demand medical treatments such as gender transitions surgeries and hormone treatments to serve in the military could cost anywhere between $1.9 and $3.7 billion in taxpayer funds over 10 years.

In 2018, the Department of Defense released recommendations for why barring transgender-identifying individuals from the military was necessary. They cited mental health concerns, including high rates of anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, suicide ideation, attempts, and completion. They also noted that “Service members with gender dysphoria are eight times more likely to attempt suicide than Service members as a whole” and “nine times more likely to have mental health encounters.”

The DOD further emphasized physical health concerns, including the fact that combat deployments anywhere in the world are often part of military service without the expectation of specialized medical care, which is required for gender transition procedures. Also cited was the concern over duty limitations that gender transition procedures would cause. Research indicates that these procedures could cause troops to be nondeployable anywhere from 111 to 135 days.

Other issues highlighted by the DOD include the private spaces of one sex, such as bathroom and shower facilities, being open to the opposite sex, which the department argues would undermine the “reasonable expectations of privacy” that both sexes have. Additionally, the department pointed to problems that could arise from trans-identifying individuals of both sexes being held to the opposite military physical standards of their biological sex.

The DOD concluded that “exempting such persons for well-established mental health, physical health, and sex-based standards, which apply to all Service members, could undermine readiness, disrupt unit cohesion, and impose an unreasonable burden on the military that is not conducive to military effectiveness and lethality.”

Military experts are voicing similar concerns over the prospect of transgender-identifying individuals serving in the armed forces, particularly with the current global challenges facing U.S. troops.

“Senator Rubio’s efforts to deal with the issue of transgender-identifying individuals in the military are to be lauded,” said Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. Boykin, who serves as executive vice president of Family Research Council. “The senator clearly understands that at a time when China is flying surveillance platforms into our airspace and becoming more and more belligerent and provocative that our precious dollars and time need to go into preparing our military for war. The notion that we can continue prioritizing making our military more ‘woke’ is a specious notion.”

“Every decision made by the president and Congress regarding our military should be made with the readiness of our military in mind,” Boykin concluded. “What the senator is proposing would set us on a pathway to spend our time and money preparing for war with not only China but other adversaries that loom on the horizon.”

After Biden Sent $1,000,000,000 to PLO, Israeli Deaths Rose 900%

It cost $10,000 to kill a 6-year-old boy and the terrorists have the money. 

When Secretary of State Blinken met with PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas, he boasted of the over billion dollars in aid that the Biden administration had programmed for the terrorist territories.

That aid has come with a very heavy price.

In Feb 2019, President Trump’s total cutoff of aid became official. That year, 10 Israelis or people in Israeli controlled areas were killed in stabbings, shootings, rocket and other attacks, down from 12 the previous year, and 15 in 2017, and 16 in 2016.

In 2020, however, only three Israelis were killed.

These numbers reflected the diminished capacity of the Islamic terrorists. The reduction in numbers was not due to the pandemic. 2020 still saw attacks, including firebombings, rocket launches and stabbings, but the success and lethality rates for these attacks were lower.

The numbers turned around dramatically once again in 2021.

In April 2021, the Biden administration restored aid to the PLO. Terror incidents, reflecting attack attempts, shot up sharply from 91 in February and 89 in March to 130 in April.

By May, major fighting resumed with 13 Israelis, including two children, killed.

By the time the year was over, 17 people in Israeli areas had been killed. The over 400% increase in deaths was only the beginning. In 2022, 31 Israelis or people in Israeli areas were killed, up from only 3 in 2020, for a massive 900% increase in casualties since the restoration of foreign aid to the terrorists. This was the worst death toll since 2015 under Obama.

But in January and the first half of February of 2023, 10 Israelis have already been killed, including a 6-year-old boy and an 8-year-old boy.

Three times as many have been killed in a month and a half of 2023 as in all of 2020. That’s a 233% increase over 2020 in just a fraction of a year, but it’s also a marked month-to-month escalation from 2022 which featured no attacks at all in January or February. More people have already been killed by terrorists in 2023 than through most of March in 2022.

What a difference a billion dollars makes.

While the media has tried to portray the terrorism as “lone wolf” attacks, they’re crowdsourced violence of the kind that Al Qaeda and ISIS helped innovate. But the PLO’s version is unique through its ‘Pay-to-Slay’ program which rewards terrorists, regardless of their formal affiliation, including ISIS and Hamas members, with salaries and payments for their families.

Terrorists are paid based on the length of their prison sentence. That means successful killers can earn $2,000 to $3,000 a month in a part of the world where the average salary is around $700 a month. It’s five times more profitable to be a terrorist than a teacher.

The Palestinian Authority calls for the murder of Jews, praises it and then rewards it.

Muhammad Al-Lahham of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, which runs the political movement behind the terrorists of the Palestinian Authority, was caught on video praising the “patriotic conscience” of a terrorist who had killed a rabbi taking his 2-year-old son for a walk in 2022.

The Trump administration cut off aid to the PLO’s Palestinian Authority and Congress passed the Taylor Force Act banning funds from going to finance Pay-to-Slay.

Throughout all this, PLO leadership have been consistent in refusing to stop financing terrorism.

“We will neither reduce nor prevent [payment] of allowances to the families of martyrs, prisoners and released prisoners, as some seek, and if we had only a single penny left, we would pay it to families of the martyrs and prisoners,” Abbas had bragged. By “martyrs”, he meant those Islamic terrorists who were killed while carrying out terrorist attacks.

Despite this, the Biden administration had restored aid and rebuilt diplomatic relations. Biden and Blinken have met with Abbas. And while they have attacked Israel over everything from letting Jews pray on the Temple Mount (due to Jewish prayers offending Muslim sensibilities) to democratic judicial reform that will limit the unilateral authority of pro-terrorist judges, Biden and Blinken have had nothing to say to the terrorists about the program funding the murder of Jews.

America First Legal, under Stephen Miller, filed suit against the Biden administration on behalf of the parents of Taylor Force: a non-Jewish Afghanistan war vet murdered in Jerusalem.

“The Biden Administration is well aware that the PA pays Palestinian terrorists to injure or kill innocent Americans and Israelis in Israel. Yet, in blatant violation of  the Taylor Force Act, a federal law that prohibits the government from sending American taxpayer dollars to the PA until it stops supporting terrorism, President Biden and Secretary of State Blinken have resumed payments to the PA after the Trump Administration had stopped these payments in compliance with the Taylor Force Act,” America First Legal declared..

“The Taylor Force Act, named after our son, was passed by Congress and signed by President Trump to stop this Pay to Slay. Yet the Biden Administration has resumed payments to the PA notwithstanding its Pay to Slay program,” Stuart Force, Taylor’s father, said.

The Biden administration’s decision to fund the Palestinian Authority has consequences beyond Israel. Islamic terrorism is a global threat and has been a reliable killer of Americans abroad.

“Robbi and I call upon President Biden to stop sending fungible taxpayer dollars to the PA that will end up funding terrorism,” Stuart Force appealed.

And the latest wave of violence shows just how ‘fungible’ that money is.

The massive uptick in successful terrorist attacks is not a coincidence. The numbers become more significant when we distinguish between so-called “lone wolf” attacks which are most directly impacted by ‘Pay-to-Slay’ and rocket attacks by other terrorist groups. 14 people were killed in direct terrorist attacks in 2018. That number dropped to 5 in 2019, the year Trump cut off aid to the PLO. By 2020, it fell to 3, in 2021, the year Biden restored aid, it rose to 4 and then shot up to 32 in 2022 reflecting the ‘slow burn’ effect of fungible aid money being taken away and then restored within a government bureaucracy even if it’s run by and for terrorists.

As the Biden administration continues pumping money into the terrorist entities occupying parts of Israel, the violence is drastically increasing. 2023 is already on track to top 2022 which had the worst numbers since 2015. The level of Islamic terrorism is returning to that of the Obama administration and that means that we can expect an even higher death toll in Israel.

The billion dollars in aid is a factor, but an even bigger factor is that the Biden administration, like its Democrat predecessor, has made no secret of its support for the Palestinian Authority. And the Biden administration has gone even further with its diplomatic support for the PLO regime and its pressure on Israel. The latest murders are the work of a terrorist group that knows that Washington D.C. has its back and will intervene to protect it from Israel.

The Biden administration’s decision to appoint Hady Amr, an open supporter of Islamic terrorism and opponent of the Jewish State, as its key liaison to the PLO, who was inspired by the intifada, has consequences, and dead bodies in Jerusalem are among the most obvious ones.

Islamic terrorism runs on money and foreign support. The Biden administration has provided both. The Palestinian Authority spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year on Pay-to-Slay.

The pipeline of terror may end with a 6-year-old boy lying dead on a Jerusalem street but it begins with cash coming out of Washington D.C. The attacks of September 11 cost Al Qaeda about half a million dollars. The cost to the PLO of killing that little boy, his brother and a newly married man going to spend the Sabbath with his wife’s family probably comes out to about $30,000 a year. Or $10,000 per dead Jewish person. That’s a fraction of the millions of dollars in foreign aid which could be used to finance hundreds and thousands of more murders of Jews.

$10,000 to kill a six-year-old boy, another $10,000 to kill his 8-year-old brother. Thanks to the financiers of murdering Jews in the Biden administration, the terrorists have the cash.

And we’re the ones providing it.
