The United States Senate approves 40 billion dollars in aid to Ukraine. However, the ability to follow the money to ensure that they get to the right assets to thwart Russian advances and attacks within Ukraine may be in question. With President Putin ordering his military to maintain the attack on Ukraine, defenders are using surprisingly simple tactics to disable and even destroy advancing Russian tanks by using UTV’s. They reportedly slam into the Russian tanks, and it only takes two to four people to accomplish the maneuver. Reportedly, Russian tanks range from one to five million dollars apiece.
Now back to our home front their are so many huge issues. Today hit the 10th day in a row where we are hitting new highs in gas as the National Average hit 4.58 a gallon compared to yesterday it was 4.56 a gallon. For the first time in history, gas has averaged over four dollars a gallon in every state and territory in the countrys. Five states are now averaging five dollars a gallon (Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and Alaska) while California has broken the six dollar threshold a week ago. With summer season rapidly approaching, demand will only go up, and some experts are predicting that gas will go over ten dollars a gallon in California by Labor Day. This is unconscionable. Also, diesel is having the same problem, but the reason it is more important to shipping for instance. Ships, trains, trucks, airplanes is moving freight and with the price so high you can be absolutely guaranteed that the prices you pay for food, dairy prices are through the roof, and most probably at least go up another 50% by the end of summer.
Lets talk politics. The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, has indicated that, for the first time since emigrating from South Africa, he is going to vote Republican. Meanwhile, though, Jeff Bezos has earmarked 10 billion dollars to environmental issues, so it is safe to say he will remain a Democrat. With control of both the Washington Post as well as Amazon, Bezos is not going to be hurt, as inflation will not affect his business model as much as smaller businesses. Finally, billionaires like Bill Gates, George Soros, and many others who profited from environmental policies that have obtained hundreds of billions, over the past two years, and trillions overall, will probably not jump ship since the wind and solar farm deals, along with the buying up of half the farmland in the United States, will guarantee they will profit mightily while the vast majority of Americans suffer.
All in all, this should play major havoc at the midterms. We are seeing it already in many state GOP primary races, as Trump-supporting populists are winning over establishment candidates. While the GOP is expected to take control of both chambers of Congress in the midterms (though the Senate control has been trending back to 50/50 control possibility), the candidates that the GOP will be fielding are not the typical Republicans who have represented the majority of the party for decades; instead, they are the type of candidates who will fight the Democratic progressives tooth and nail, which is scaring the elites such as President Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and many progressive members of Congress.
Here is what most people don’t get and I’ll try to explain what is reality and what is just political garage. When the average voter, whether you are a Republican or old-school Democrat like myself, hear the words “Green New Deal,” we just laugh because if anyone was really interested in fixing the so called global warming, or climate change, then they would first highly force each state to make such fixes mandatory, at least as much as possible as the 10th Amendment gives them power to do so. Next the single worse law the SEC allowed is to allow cryoptocurrency because it takes so much electricity to mine the coins. So what does Russia and Chine do they build coal firing plants and run them at max power to mine these coins and it ruins the climate and thus makes so much pollution that Global warming by these countries is what is ruining our atmosphere. However, we have to get a handle on our own economy; at least cryptocurrency is being creating through production; currently our federal reserve is not based on anything but the goodwill of our government leaders, with currency created at the push of a computer button. This is one major reason why inflation will be incredibly abusive this summer.
My plan running for President of the United States in 2024, once I officially announce the campaign. is to build 50 to 300 nuclear power plants and make all cars build and sold in America to have catalytic convertors which turn as much emissions to water vapor as possible.
