It’s Time For a 10 Year Foreign Aid Moratorium

This week the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved $40 billion in aid which will be sent to Ukraine. The Senate voted 86-11 in favor of the bill. It’s very rare for the Senate to be this united on a bill these days and yet a super majority of the people elected to represent us in the Senate voted to send $40 billion dollars of our money to a foreign country.

From 2013-2018 US taxpayers paid out over $300 billion dollars to foreign countries. In 2019 alone the US paid out over $47 billion in foreign aid with the top receivers being Israel, Afghanistan, Jordan, Egypt, and Iraq among others. This should put into perspective just how daunting the amount of money we are sending one country with the passing of this Ukraine aid bill, which is nearly as much as we spent total sending money to dozens of foreign countries in all of 2019.

Rumble Shows Their True Colors Once Again

The Canadian video platform Rumble is once again showing their true colors this week after threatening competitor and actual free speech video hosting platform Odysee with legal action over a tweet. This isn’t the first time the Rumble has taken action that is antithetical to protecting free speech online. As National File reported back in June, Rumble abruptly changed their terms of service to ban “hate speech” and “antisemitism” on the very same day that Donald Trump joined the platform. If that sounds exactly like the same terms of service Big Tech platforms use to censor any and all dissent, that’s because it is. 

Remember, Remember the 3rd of November

I have to say I’m pretty apathetic when it comes to political “victories” these days. After 2020, it’s tough to have faith in any elections in this country, even ones where we get a perceived “victory.” These people are all controlled and allowed to win for a reason. They get in and nothing ever changes, it just continues getting worse.

Kingdom of God Economics

Today I built a desk out of some lumber I picked up from the local yard this week. It’s a remarkable way to express myself and build incredibly useful furniture for around the house. I’m learning new skills, refining the art of carpentry, and getting some much needed time away from the chaos of our fallen world and the City of Man.
