Lead: Some Suprises in The New Defense Spending Bill

The House of Representatives passed a new defense budget for 2024 that comes in at $886 billion

Even though this is a military bill, it has some hidden social policies included such as limiting abortion access for service members and a ban on transgender procedures such as cross-sex hormones and surgeries on military health plans.  

The bill also includes a 5.2% raise for troops as well as a new branch of the military called the Space National Guard. 

It also includes an auditor for the war on Ukraine, a cause that Congress has repeatedly rejected from Senator Ron Paul. 

The Senate is working on its own version of this bill before some version of it goes to President Biden to sign. 

Ukraine Lauches Second Terror Attack Against Crimean Bridge

Ukraine and NATO attacked a bridge between Russia and Crimea today. This is the same bridge that was attacked last October by Ukraine.

According to Russia, a married couple were killed in the terror attack and a young girl was injured.

The attack on Monday came from underwater drone strikes run by the SBU, a unit of Ukraine's military. These NATO provided sea based drones were launched around 3 AM. Ukraine immediately took credit for the terror attack by telling the BBC "yep it was us." According to RT, "Andrey Yusov, a spokesman for Ukraine’s Main Directorate of Intelligence, described the Crimean Bridge as a 'redundant construction,' but refused to elaborate."

Why would Ukraine be attacking Crimea when the counteroffensive is nowhere near there? Crimea voted to join Russia in 2014 because of threats by the SBU.

The Democrats and The Supremes


U.S. lawmakers want to reel in the Supreme Court with the Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act. It is a Democrat-led effort to set rules about the Justices and their secular activities. 

The act requires disclosures for any “gifts, income, and reimbursements required to be disclosed under the Standing Rules of the Senate and the Rules of the House of Representatives.” This comes as news continues to break about the Justices and their money-making pursuits. 

For example, last week, the court issued a rare statement in defense of Justice Sotomayor's book-selling promotions that go along with her campus speeches. 

According to The Epoch Times, "records show Justice Clarence Thomas has collected about $1 million since 2006, while Stephen Breyer, who retired in 2022, reported roughly $700,000 in royalty income in the past two decades.Justice Neil Gorsuch has disclosed more than $900,000 since his 2017 confirmation. Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who was confirmed in 2020, received a reported $2 million advance for a forthcoming book. Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson signed a book deal, but the amount of her advance was not public, according to AP."

Recently, the Justices released a vague ethics statement that stopped short of setting rules for themselves. It addressed potential conflicts such as the Justices’ financial investment disclosures, speaking engagements and recusals. It did not bind them to any protocol about those things. It was more of an outline of good practice and Democrats say that just doesn't cut it.

Stolen Valor

James Vasquez credit: instagram

Here is a good opportunity for us to see through some propaganda. The media loves the stories about American volunteers who go to fight in Ukraine. They don't necessarily have to be true. 

Business Insider recently exposed a man named James Vasquez, a 48 year-old contractor from Vermont, as a fake social media war hero. We covered his story in March when the New York Times accused him of lying. Now Business Insider says that the fact that he is a faker is well known in Ukraine. Other foreign fighters say that he enters "areas where battles had taken place, take[s] videos with destroyed equipment, and claim[s] battlefield achievements as his own."

He also lied about his veteran experience claiming he was involved in Operation Desert Storm. 

His social media accounts have been de-activated but not before he had the opportunity to rile up over 400,000 people with his war hero rhetoric. 

Just because he perpetuated fake foreign fighting doesn't mean others do but it is proof positive that the media is willing to elevate some stories without validation for one agenda over another.
