White House Claims Ukraine Will Be Careful
with American-Provided Cluster Bombs

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/8/2023 2:32:21 AM

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan claimed during a briefing on Friday that Ukraine will be careful with American-provided cluster bombs. Sullivan confirmed reports that President Joe Biden will supply Ukraine with cluster bombs, which much of the world has vowed not to use due to long-term effects on civilians. “We recognize that cluster munitions create a risk of civilian harm from unexploded ordinances. This is why we deferred the decision for as long as we could,” Sullivan said. However, he claimed that civilians could be harmed by potential Russian advances into Ukraine.

If Jake Sullivan feels the need to say that Ukraine will be “careful” with these kind of weapons, something is very off. Who uses that kind of language when discussing an ongoing war? What kind of warped and reckless administration is Biden’s cabal?! Try as they might this lawless administration is “fighting a war” that the majority of Americans do not support. The political class both R & D can dress it up and call it a fight for freedom and democracy but the American people understand this is just another war to feed the military-industrial complex and the pockets of corrupt politicians. The added intrigue with this war is the systemic and deep corruption between the oligarchs inside Ukraine and our own political class that is being protected from being revealed. Then there are the neo-cons who never saw a war they could not sink their greedy little teeth into. Is this a principled war? Absolutely not. It is another war to protect the status quo corruption and feed the war mongers in our government. Trump is right. This could have all been avoided. Remember Joe Biden was literally stoking the fires for war before Russia moved on Ukraine. Now why would any sane person do that? Anyone who believes President Trump would not have moved heaven and earth to prevent this carnage is fooling themselves. This was all preventable as have been most of the conflicts we have jumped into for decades. When you have a lawless administration stoking the fires of war that is beyond reckless and reprehensible. The reason this administration is going after President Trump so hard is because he was not in favor of war for profit. If threatened or attacked by our enemies he was more than willing to fight and he would fight to win. All this pathetic waste of our men and women in the military and vast amounts of money for these made for TV wars is anathema to him. And this is why the powers that be in both parties hate him and are doing everything in their power to destroy him. Evil men look for wars to fight for perverse reasons, good men avoid war at all costs but will fight to the death if attacked. Herein is the difference between Biden and Trump.

According to retired Gen. Ben Hodges, we have millions of these cluster bombs stockpiled if the bulk of these gets sent to Ukraine, I don’t see how the Russian soldiers in the open trenches will survive the onslaught. Looks like a true game changer to me.

So the "progressives" who previously decided cluster bombs are not good because they are too effective, have now decided that cluster bombs are good because they are effective. These people are happy to fight wars with excessive restraint until they begin to fear they might not win. They are akin to those who choose to fight wars by proxy and to adjust the level of support to avoid winning. This promotes much more bloodshed than an effort to win quickly.

Over the July 4th weekend, officials discovered cocaine stashed in the White House. The Secret Service has yet to reveal its findings of who smuggled the white powdery drug into one of the most secure buildings in the world. And the White House refuses to provide much insight into the growing scandal.The White House press team refuses to say whether or not the cocaine belonged to Joe or Hunter Biden, citing campaign law.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf is a central figure in the investigation into Hunter Biden and is alleged to have stymied investigators and aided the Biden family. Wolf is the subject of a letter Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, sent to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, David Weiss, on Sunday. Wolf worked directly beneath Weiss on the Department of Justice and IRS probe into Biden’s overseas business dealings and tax affairs.In addition to other allegations about Wolf’s role in the probe, Grassley’s letter revealed an October 2020 briefing that Wolf allegedly received from the Department of Justice and FBI.

The Justice Department briefed federal prosecutors and agents on the team investigating Hunter Biden on a key FBI document containing allegations of a criminal bribery scheme involving Joe Biden in October 2020, but did not invite IRS agents to that briefing, Sen. Chuck Grassley charged. That accusation was leveled just weeks after IRS whistleblowers alleged that the entire federal investigation into Hunter Biden's business dealings was influenced by politics. The document in question is an FBI-generated FD-1023 form. The form, dated June 30, 2020, reflects the FBI's interview with a "highly credible" confidential source who detailed multiple meetings and conversations

Stein’s Law holds that “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.” The late Herbert Stein made the observation about economic trends, but his axiom perfectly describes Joe Biden’s shaky dance with political death. The president is trying to navigate a narrow path between two potential disasters. Each one could prove fatal to his tenure, but if the twain shall meet, he doesn’t have a prayer. And it’s a near certainty they will meet because the facts we already know are overwhelmingly stacked against him and more damaging information is coming soon. One track of his predicament stems from general public unhappiness with his performance.

Major legal rulings that dismantled the use of race in college admissions, undermined protections for LGBTQ people and tossed out President Joe Biden’s student debt relief program marked the end of a Supreme Court term in which the conservative supermajority continued to exert its dominance. The majority also doubled down on a controversial legal theory that limits the power of federal agencies to take unilateral action. Meanwhile, the justices rejected a far-fetched argument that would have limited the role of state courts in election disputes and turned away an aggressive attempt to challenge Biden administration immigration policy – both areas in which lawyers on the right might have overreached in their arguments.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was slammed for bowing multiple times when she met with China's vice premier He Lifeng, as some critics say the protocol error is a sign of American weakness. Yellen, who served as chair of the Federal Reserve before becoming Joe Biden's top financial official, wrapped up her first visit to China as treasury secretary on Sunday. Moments after bowing at least three times, Yellen then stumbled over He's name, calling him 'Vice Premier Hu.' Both Washington and Beijing said the meetings during her four-day trip were fruitful, although the visit - designed to help smooth a rocky relationship - did not generate any concrete agreements.
