On Thursday, President Biden authorized a new $450 million weapons package for Ukraine that includes more High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), patrol boats, and tactical vehicles.

From Newsweek:

A June 15 post by Dan Zimmerman on the blog the Truth About Guns, said that a person with knowledge of the matter told the blog that Winchester Ammunition, which operates the U.S. Army’s Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Missouri was told it was no longer permitted to sell M855 and SS109 ammunition “produced in excess of the military’s needs on the civilian market.”

Price stability?

Full employment?

Noble goals of our central banking system known as the Federal Reserve, that wonderful creature from Jekyll Island.

But trying to improve our economy for families and the middle class are goals nowhere near as important as promoting racial socialism (i.e., legalized discrimination against white people).

The White House indicated Tuesday they are preparing for an economic recession, despite President Joe Biden’s assertion that it is “not inevitable.”

When asked about a possible recession in the United States economy, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre praised the president for his economic agenda.

The US says that it “appreciates” anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU nations and that its military is committed to the defense of Lithuania, after the country banned some Russian goods from passing through its territory to the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad.

Ned Price, the spokesman for the US state department, dismissed Moscow’s displeasure with the Lithuanian blockade of its territory as “saber-rattling” and “bluster.” Speaking at a daily briefing, he said he didn’t want to “give it additional time.”

It is an open secret that since 2014 Ukraine and the United States have been actively promoting the idea of the “obsolescence” of the international security system formed with the end of World War II. The main problem, in their opinion, is the inconsistency of the permanent members of the UN Security Council with “modern realities” both in quantitative and qualitative terms. To be candid, they are not satisfied with the presence of Russia in this organization, as well as its right to veto the decisions of the United States and its allies.

A common thread in postwar histories of WW2 was one that liked to paint Adolf Hitler as increasingly unhinged and detached from reality towards the end of the Third Reich. We were told stories of how he liked to indulge himself in flights of fancy, surveying architectural models of a new Berlin, one that was to be built after Germany won the war, despite the Allies already closing in on both sides. Delusions of future grandeur, while everything was collapsing all around him. A case of “cope”?

At the end of May, amid a flurry of scapegoating over surging prices and plunging approval ratings, President Biden seized on an Oval Office meeting with Fed Chair Powell to argue that while fighting price increases is his top priority, that work was primarily the purview of the Federal Reserve.
