Words matter. Framing matters.
“Zelensky to ask for more cash to support war with Russia” is such a disrespectful and manipulative take.
People with additions or in trouble “ask for cash”.
Countries that need military means to defend against the invasion don’t “ask for cash” pic.twitter.com/1cT5vDR8sJ

Zelensky did sort of get screwed, if we’re honest. He was a cokehead comedian who was recruited to run on a platform of creating peace with Russia by honoring the Minsk Accords. Then they told him to do some lines and go up and start talking about joining NATO, and to send the military in to totally annihilate the Minsk Accords.
So then he gets invaded by Russia. Immediately, he tries to just surrender and meet Russia’s terms, and then Boris Johnson flies in and tells him he’s not allowed to do that and must fight an endless war.
Now, he’s two years into the endless war, which he personally knew was impossible to win (which is why he tried to surrender two weeks after the invasion), but following orders, he’s staked his entire career and really his life on continuing the war indefinitely.
Of course, he has been paid billions of dollars.
But what do you do with billions of dollars, after being run out of your country of birth as a hated figure responsible for probably close to a million deaths and the total destruction of the country? He’s going to be hated by the West for losing. He’s not going to be a celebrity hero. I don’t think he can go back to making Russian-language comedy shows.
So he can do drugs and live in a mansion? He’s only like 45 and he has no future at all.
By the way, his name is “Vladimir.” I just saw “Volodymyr” in the lede here, and it’s just unbelievable. What a bizarre thing to do. It’s inexplicable.
Volodymyr Zelenskiy is to address US senators by video during a classified briefing as the Biden administration urges Congress to approve billions of dollars in support for Ukraine.
The Senate majority leader, Chuck Schumer, announced the Ukrainian president’s appearance after the White House on Monday sent an urgent warning that Kyiv’s war efforts to defend itself from Russia’s invasion may grind to a halt without further US military and economic assistance.
Schumer said the administration had invited Zelenskiy to address the senators so they “could hear directly from him precisely what’s at stake”. The US secretary of state, defence secretary and other top national security officials will also speak at the briefing.
I don’t really believe that Schumer wants to send the money anymore.
Him and the rest of the Jews are flipping out about the homeland, and the fact that they could trigger a war against all Moslems means they really need to be saving the resources of the goyim pay-piggies.
Shalanda Young, the White House director of the office of management and budget, said in a letter on Monday: “We are out of money – and nearly out of time.”
Joe Biden has sought a nearly $106bn (£84bn) aid package for Ukraine, Israel and other needs, but there is growing Republican scepticism over assistance for Ukraine and even Republicans who support it are insisting on policy changes on the US-Mexico border to halt the flow of migrants as a condition for approval.
Negotiations over the border security package broke down over the weekend, aides said. Talks are expected to resume this week.
The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, said on Monday that his party was “still at the table”.
Congress has already allocated $111bn to assist Ukraine, including $67bn in military procurement funding, $27bn for economic and civil assistance and $10bn for humanitarian aid. Young wrote that all of it, other than about 3% of the military funding, had been depleted by mid-November.
The new package proposes an additional $61bn for Ukraine, mainly to buy weapons from the US, $14.3bn for Israel, which includes $10.6bn for weaponry. There is also nearly $14bn for border security, along with aid for the Asia-Pacific region and other US national security provisions.
That sure is a helluva lot of money to piss away. The outcome is that the Ukraine population has been halved – none of those people are coming back, or at least 95% of them aren’t – and there are hundreds of thousands dead.
Oh, and it was great for the Russian economy, and created an unbreakable alliance between Russia and China, made Putin impenetrable to the point where he can now push his extreme right-wing social agenda (they’re just arresting gays for being gay now, and he’s moving to ban abortion completely) and strengthen the country that way, created massive hostility to the US the world over, created a huge push for dedollarization… and there are other effects.
None of them actually benefit the US/Jew agenda in any way.
It’s really incredible.
I’m certainly happy about how it went.
But what the hell? How are these people this incompetent?
Now they’re planning a war against… all Moslems? And also China, apparently?
🇺🇦☦There is no place for Christians in Ukraine
Once again, the Ukrainian nationalists from the “Orthodox Church of Ukraine” under the control of Zelensky decided to desecrate and occupy the church of the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Krementi.
