Everyone has the right to criticize Musk’s purchase of Twitter and the US government can investigate it if they have a legitimate reason to, but none of that has anything to do with China, which should be left out of this controversy.

Propaganda:

Elon Musk’s business ties to China draw scrutiny after Twitter purchase

My commentary: They conveniently omit Musk’s contracts with the US government. Also, I’ve already debunked the Xinjiang issue and the Hong Kong protests weren’t about ‘democracy.’

A scheme to send US weapons to Ukraine, using the “lend-lease” formula pioneered during WWII to skirt neutrality laws, was officially approved by Congress this week. However, it was put together all the way back in January – more than a month before Moscow recognized the Donbass republics as independent and sent troops into Ukraine.

Raytheon chief warns of delays in replenishing Stinger missile stocks

The CEO of Raytheon Technologies told investors Tuesday that the company won’t be able to ramp up production of Stinger missiles until 2023, due to a lack of parts and materials for the weapons that Western allies have rushed to Ukraine.

Thousands of Stinger anti-aircraft missiles have been pulled from stocks across Europe and the United States and sent to Ukraine, but as yet there is no solid plan to replenish the stocks for the countries that donated them.

The Inflation Crisis Of 2022 Is Now Worse Than Anything That We Experienced During The 1970s

Most Americans don’t realize this, but we truly have entered historic territory. As you will see below, the inflation crisis of 2022 has now escalated to a level that is beyond anything that we experienced during the horrible Jimmy Carter era of the 1970s. If you are old enough to have been alive back then, you probably remember the constant headlines about inflation. And you also probably remember that it seemed like the impotent administration in power in Washington was powerless to do anything about it. In other words, it was a lot like what we are going through today. Unfortunately for us, this new economic crisis is still only in the very early chapters.
