Conflicts of Interest #190: Congress Is Set to Give Highly Corrupt Pentagon Hundreds of Billions

On COI #190, Kyle Anzalone discusses Congress closing in on passing a near $800 billion funding bill for the Pentagon as it fails in every category. A report from the Pentagon inspector general found the agency has failed to make much progress tackling its sexual abuse/harassment issues. As many as half of all women who serve report being targets. Despite sexual abuse being an issue that multiple Pentagon heads promised to tackle, almost no progress has been made. 

Kyle updates the 2022 NDAA’s progress in the Senate. The vote on the massive funding bill is expected to take place this week. A provision that requires women to register for the draft will likely make it into the bill. 

Kyle breaks down the recent Biden-Xi talks. The talks netted some very minor successes. However, the Biden administration followed up the talks by announcing deeper ties with Taiwan and war games in the South China Sea. This will likely prevent any building of diplomacy.
