Lead: U.S. Weapons in Ukraine Heading To Criminals

new report from the Inspector General shows that weapons that the U.S. sends to Ukraine are in fact ending up on the black market.

The report also says that the legally required monitoring of the weapons is not happening. The report says that they have “some accountability” for “observable platforms” like missiles and helicopters but the small items, “such as night vision devices” sometimes just go missing.

When asked about this problem, a State Department spokesperson said this, “The US government remains keenly aware of the risk of possible illicit diversion and is proactively taking steps to mitigate this risk in close cooperation with the government of Ukraine.”

So basically: Shoulder shrug, it happens. We’re going to keep the weapons flowing.

Congress has repeatedly rejected the idea of appointing a special inspector general for weapons provisions to Ukraine.

A British couple was fined recently for attempting to smuggle American-made M141s from Ukraine across the border to France. They said that they were gifted the weapons as “symbols of victory.”

Hunter Biden Investigation Reveals More Lies

Devon Archer is expected to testify before Congress this week and it will likely bring more problems for the Biden family.

Archer is an associate and former business partner of Hunter Biden. He will testify to the House Oversight Committee that has been investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings. He will be asked about various phone calls that he claims President Biden attended either in person or via speakerphone with foreign business partners and prospective investors.

It is by now pretty evident that President Biden lied repeatedly about not being involved in his son Hunter’s business. It is also apparent that Hunter traded business favors for political influence from foreign actors.

Twitter is being rebranded as X. Just X.

So what do we call it when you Tweet? TBD.

What do you call it when you Retweet? ReTBD.

Why is the company doing this? Incoming Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino explained it here but I still don’t completely get it. It will have something to do with payments, banking, exchange of goods and services and Artificial Intelligence.

“There’s absolutely no limit to this transformation. X will be the platform that can deliver, well….everything,” she said.

Stanford’s Nazi Panel

Ukraine’s Azov soldiers credit: twitter

In the age of cancel culture, guess what was not canceled at Stanford last month? A panel on the Azov Battalion, a neo-Nazi factor of the Ukrainian army.

The Stanford researcher who hosted the panel, Francis Fukuyama, has since said he is proud to support Azov when he was pushed on the Nazi symbolism and history of the group.

“I think you need to do a little more reading on Azov,” he wrote in an email to the San Francisco Chronicle. “They originated among Ukrainian nationalists, but to call them neo-Nazis is to accept Russia’s framing of what they represent today. By the time they defended Mariopol they were fully integrated into the [Armed Forces of Ukraine] and are heroes that I’m proud to support.”

That’s false. They did not originate as a Ukrainian nationalist group. They are followers of Stepan Bandera who was a Nazi collaborator during World War II and founded by Andriy Biletsky who advocated a “crusade of the white nations of the world against the Semitic-led subhumans.”

More telling is why this event happened in the first place.

Stanford has been a reluctant defender of free speech so for this to go down so easily is worth noting. As one outlet put it: “The fact that neo-Nazis are now paraded on campuses of leading academic institutions in the US must be seen as an alarming sign of the extent of the rightward shift of both the bourgeoisie and significant sections of the middle class and academia. Serious intellectuals, students and young people must draw far-reaching conclusions from this development.
