Biden’s ‘Moment of Truth’

The president published another strange op-ed tying the wars in Ukraine and Gaza together. His immediate goal was to urge Congress to pass a bill funding more military aid for Ukraine and Israel, but to do that he insists on linking the two wars together as if they are comparable and equally worthy of support. This is the same line he has been pushing for months ever since he decided to try to use Congressional support for Israel to get more funding for Ukraine last year. It was a strained and unpersuasive argument six months ago, and now it is just insulting.

The U.S. shouldn’t be providing any military assistance to Israel for its current war(s). Not only has the Israeli government used U.S.-made weapons to commit war crimes, but it has also been impeding and blocking the delivery of humanitarian aid as part of a policy of using starvation as a weapon against the people of Gaza. Further weapons transfers to Israel should be out of the question. There shouldn’t be one more cent spent on military aid to a government responsible for such crimes. U.S. forces shouldn’t be used to protect a bad client from the consequences of its actions.

‘War Time’ Speaker Johnson’s Ukraine Border Defense Bill Leaves US Borders Wide Open!

On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

House Speaker Mike Johnson said this week he considers himself a “war time” Speaker – even though we are not at war. But he seems to be at war with the American people, bringing up a bill to send a hundred billion dollars overseas while America struggles. Also today: will the Senate stop the super-spy bill?

26 House Dems Voice ‘Deep Concern’ Over Biden Claim That Israel Is Legally Using US Arms

More than two dozen House Democrats on Tuesday challenged the Biden administration’s claim that Israel is using U.S.-supplied weapons in compliance with domestic and international law—an assertion made amid an ongoing World Court probe of “plausibly” genocidal Israeli policies and practices in Gaza.

Citing “mounting credible and deeply troubling reports and allegations” of human rights crimes committed by Israeli troops in Gaza and soldiers and settlers in the occupied West Bank, 26 congressional Democrats led by Texas Reps. Veronica Escobar—who co-chairs President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign—and Joaquin Castro asked U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines “whether and how” their agencies determined Israel is lawfully using arms provided by Washington.
