We Must Help Ukraine in Every Possible Way


What the heck is going on? In the incredibly brave Ukrainian people we have a nation which will fight to the last man, to the last bullet, for its freedom. We have seen so many people we have helped who turn tail and run at the first sign of Bolshevik assault. Now, we have the brave Ukrainian men and women fighting the onslaught of the Red Army with a courage that the world rarely sees.

(And let’s not kid ourselves. Russia under Comrade Putin is as evil as Russia under Lenin. It saves a lot of fraud on our own brains to call them what they are: dictatorial Communists, only this time they use different names.)

So here we have the Ukrainians fighting with a courage not seen in Europe for a good 77 years. We in the USA have a vast armory of weapons we don’t use or use rarely. The Ukrainians are begging us for help in the form of materiel. We can give it to them and never miss it. And even if we did miss it, we can replace it very quickly.

It costs pennies. We have so far supposedly given the Ukraine about $2 billion worth of equipment and money. A man I spoke to last night said that would bankrupt America. That man could not be more wrong. The GDP of the United States is roughly $23 trillion. Two billion dollars is not even a rounding error. We waste that much on totally fake programs for “diversity” and “equal rights” every few months. To think that for $2 billion we can give Vladimir Putin a bloody nose is almost miraculous news. The Ukrainians deserve our help in every possible way. Money for Ukrainian freedom fighters is not waste. It is moral salvation for our fat, bloated America.

We see the Russians every day killing school children, raping random women then killing them, and bombing hospitals. There is literally no limit to their cruelty. We can help. We must help. And who cares if there is some waste? There is always waste in war.

We have for the first time since 1945 the chance to fight for freedom in Europe. President Biden did a great act by calling Putin a war criminal. Now, let’s follow up by sending meaningful quantities of weapons. Right now. No excuses. Let’s just do it.

Meanwhile, where are the “brave” women in Congress, keeping silent as innocent Ukrainian women are raped and murdered? How can “the squad” be so thoroughly evil? It’s Hitler’s birthday and I can guess that AOC is singing “Happy Birthday.”
