Should US Taxpayers Cover Ukraine's Pensions?
Post Date: 2024-01-05 07:39:14 by Horse
Thus far, the US federal government has spent about $9 billion on Ukrainian pensions. If Congress approves President Biden’s next supplemental aid package, the Ukrainian pension payments will continue at a rate of up to $600 million per month. Previous reports of this spending have raised eyebrows. Critics argue that the US should shore up its own retirement system before bailing out that of a foreign nation. The pension spending is part of a larger effort by the United States and the World Bank to stabilize Ukrainian government finances during the war. Ukraine was already running deficits before Russia invaded in February 2022, but since then, the gap between revenues and ...

2024: Here's What Happens (According To Jim Rickards)
Post Date: 2024-01-04 07:30:33 by Horse
Authored by James Rickards via, In 2023, we saw the outbreak of a banking crisis (that isn’t over), a new Middle East war break out in Gaza, two states ban Trump from the ballot in the 2024 elections and the mainstreaming of AI, among other things. All I can say is strap in, because 2024 is setting up to be even more chaotic than 2023. That’s right, 2024 will be more tumultuous and shocking than 2023. Let’s first address the election. My primary focus is on markets and the economy, but I’m also an attorney. Though I’m not a constitutional scholar, I studied constitutional law under an exceptional professor. And the decisions by the Supreme ...

Ukraine's Leopard 2 Tanks Are Nearly All Destroyed Or Broken
Post Date: 2024-01-04 07:18:54 by Horse
The German-made tank was supposed to turn the tide of battle, but now, barely any are even in service with the Ukrainian army... Poster Comment:Ukrainian soldiers hate the Abrams tank. It is modeled after a jet engine and assumes clean air just like a jet has at 15,000 feet. The filters get clogged and stop the tank. The heat signature is very hot and easily identifiable to Russians who will then target the tank and its crew. Plus the tank fuel is a special blend and has to be transported separately from the rest of the fuel for the Ukrainian army.

The US and the EU are leading opponents of BRICS and the bloc’s mission. However, many countries in the rest of the world are in support of BRICS and support the idea of BRICS currency overshadowing the US Dollar. This past Summer, South African BRICS ambassador Anil Sooklal confirmed that European countries have expressed interest to join BRICS. Sooklal did not reveal the names of the European nations but hinted that a global financial change was brewing.

“I’ve also lost patience with the Sharia of the political left taking over the entire system.” — David Collum Historians of the future, flash-frying peccary testicles and mesquite pods over their campfires, will wonder at how the archetypal Shining City on a Hill of America’s storied yesteryear got transformed into the roach motel that our country has become on the threshold of 2024 CE. Will they be as stupidly bewildered as, in our time, the faculty at Harvard, the editors of The New York Times, or the directorate of the CDC? Or will they figure out the score by then? Which is: the nauseating state-of-the-nation is being driven by a cohort of our own fellow ...

The Methodist Church of Great Britain has called on its ministers, deacons, and elders to stop using offensive terminology such as “husband” and “wife” to avoid making assumptions that are not “the reality for many people.” The church added the changes to its “Inclusive Language Guide,” an initiative aimed at preventing the use of “hurtful language” directed at groups the Methodist Church believes have been “marginalised and/or demonised by common culture.” The church plans to update the Inclusive Language Guide every six months to avoid using language that could offend groups it perceives as marginalize

Post Date: 2023-12-28 12:11:51 by Horse
Popular anti-anxiety medication could be putting more than 1 million pregnant women at risk of miscarriage, a new study suggests. Researchers from Taiwan studied more than 3 million pregnancies in 2 million women and found 4.4 percent - or 136,130 - resulted in miscarriages. They analyzed the medical history of all the women studied, and found those prescribed a class of drug called benzodiazepines - used to treat anxiety, depression and insomnia - were, on average, 70 percent more likely to miscarry compared to those who didn't take the pills. Benzodiazepines, also called benzos, are a group of sedative drugs. The most well known medications include Xanax, Valium, Ativan and ...

US Announces $250 Million Arms Package for Ukraine
Post Date: 2023-12-28 11:25:34 by Horse
The Biden administration announced a new $250 million weapons package for Ukraine that the White House said will be the last until Congress approves new spending for the proxy war. The arms package uses the Presidential Drawdown Authority, which allows the US to ship weapons straight from US military stockpiles. The Pentagon still has over $4.1 billion in PDA funds for Ukraine but lacks the funds to replenish the arms as US stockpiles have been significantly depleted. White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said last week that once the new arms package was announced, “We will have no more replenishment authority available to us, and we’re going to need ...
