When it comes to going after the “invasion” of the Chinese into our education system, I doubt that any governor has been more aggressive than Ron DeSantis. Due to his condemnation of the Chinese, however, I have to question whether all his actions are warranted. Let there be no doubt that the Chinese have been […]

Resolved: Enforce the Border or No More Ukraine Funding

 

On Tuesday, the national debt hit $33 trillion. On Wednesday, Homeland Security removed razor wire Texas set up along the border, empowering a surge in illegal crossings. On Thursday, President Biden announced another $325 million for Ukraine. Meanwhile, a budget fight is brewing on Capitol Hill.

Senate and House Republicans have repeatedly investigated, interrogated, and inveighed against the Biden administration over the border, all to no effect. The time has come for Congress to grab the purse strings, their constitutional duty. GOP leadership (or a handful of conservatives in both houses) should announce that no more money will be sent to Ukraine until the border is enforced.

… from triumphant “The gates of Melitopol by the end of summer!” and such 90 days ago to the currently intensifying exercise in finger-pointing (“Ukraine is too casualty averse/not implementing the combined warfare lessons we taught them” <—> “The West hasn’t given us enough [insert “game-changing” piece of equipment/technology]/money”), one may ask? For the answer, […]

That is one of the questions that the Anti-Corruption Foundation (founded by Alexei Navalny in 2011) asked 800 Germans and 554 French in a multiple-choice poll they conducted last week. The answers, as the organization’s chairman (Leonid Volkov, who was also Mr. Navalny’s chief of staff) himself put it, are “shocking”. I’d have to agree: […]
