    USA US Presidential Elections 2024

    The Republican party of today can be divided into four groups. People are certainly more complex than four categories, but like most categorizations the purpose here is to simplify a complex dynamic to make it easier to understand and draw conclusions. Grifters. Trump, Murdochs, Elon Musk...

    NATO summit declaration got released: https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/official_texts_227678.htm Some highlights, though overall it's pretty unimpressive: New rhetoric: The just released declaration states that Ukraine's membership in NATO is irreversible: "we will continue to support it on...

    The most reliable information we have regarding what a Trump administration's policy towards Ukraine could look like comes from this: https://americafirstpolicy.com/issues/america-first-russia-ukraine The writers are expected to hold senior positions in a Trump administration, and are part of...

    You're making a lot of noise over very little: 1. This is for registration, and the only thing that would change is that currently it is ages 18-24 that are registered, whereas this proposal would make it 18-26. There is no draft. 2. This has been passed only in the House. In order to become law...

    Unfortunately so far Israel remains opposed to selling Ukraine its Patriot systems. There are several groups working on this but without much progress.

    A couple Patriot updates today: - Biden has approved the transfer of an additional Patriot system for Ukraine, according to the NYT - Scholz announced the transfer of Germany's 3rd Patriot system to Ukraine in the coming weeks - On April 17, Netherlands' Mark Rutte's announced that he is looking...

    I wouldn't say she's a Russian stooge. Spartz is mentally unstable, populistic, and very dumb. She was elected from a rural district in Indiana, is very pro-Trump, and her whole platform is based around her past as an accountant and that as a result she is in a position to manage money in DC...

    Sorry, let me correct myself and elaborate: The ~$15 billion assessment describes what Ukraine would realistically receive, both military and economic, in 2024. Realistically HR 815 provides for: Economic Aid to Ukraine: $8,249,000,000 Short Term Military Aid: $6,907,409,800 Long Term Military...

    This is just politics, and stupid politics at that. HR 815 (the bill for arming Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan that has passed the Senate but stalled in the House), has $60 billion aimed at countering Russia in Ukraine, of which about $15 billion would actually go to Ukraine soon while the majority...

    More absurd statements and Russia fanboyism. Russia already has more land and resources than any country on our planet. And yet, Russia is #134 in life expectancy, #68 in GDP per capita and 22.6% of Russians don't have indoor plumbing. Russia's GDP is smaller than Italy's; it's actually close...

    This remains unlikely, what Macron said was that he declines ruling out French troops in Ukraine, but that they’re not needed now. What Naryshkin is doing meanwhile is reinforcing the narrative that Russia is not just fighting against Ukraine, but all of NATO. This makes it easier for Russian...

    More laughingly absurd statements followed by whataboutism. Russians and Ukrainians are not the same. While Russians accepted as their government regressed from some semblance of democracy in the 1990s to dictatorship, Ukraine had two revolutions. In 2004, an attempt at election rigging sparked...

    Ukraine has had 5 democratically elected presidents since 2000: Kuchma, Yuschenko, Yanukovich, Poroshenko, Zelensky. Each with differing platforms and ideas. For the past 25 years, Russia has had two, and that's if we're counting Medvedev as an independent president rather than Putin's...

    Russia hasn't even managed to destroy Ukraine's air capability, never mind NATO's. When F-16s arrive to Ukraine and continue operating, will you admit that what you just wrote here is nonsense?

    Ukraine hasn't received aid from the US since December 27, 2023, and hasn't received significant aid since October. Any US aid still delivered is miniscule and from what was announced/agreed upon months ago, since funding for Ukraine has been stuck in Congress since October. Yet somehow Russia...

    This is not connected to the situation in Texas, it's about passing the Supplemental bill that includes immigration reform and funding for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. https://www.axios.com/2024/01/27/senate-border-deal-biden-house-republicans

    Instead of searching for Russian TV debates, I would recommend this channel: https://www.youtube.com/@1420channel - which asks ordinary Russians interesting questions, many dealing with politics, war, democracy, etc.

    Arestovich was neither Zelensky's aide nor a participant in the peace negotiations. He is a blogger and was an unpaid communications advisor to the Office of the President. The Office of the President is the entirety of the Ukrainian federal apparatus working for the President, consisting of...

    Safe is not just a matter of the likelihood that the money is frozen. Safe is overwhelmingly about the interest earned balanced to potential risks (from currency fluctuation, crises, etc.). In addition there is the ease and convenience of using the USD and Western financial institutions. The...
