U.S. House Endorses Accepting Finland and Sweden Into NATO, 394 to 18

The bipartisan consensus for expanding NATO remains strong as the House approved a resolution on Monday endorsing Sweden and Finland’s memberships in a vote of 394-18, with only Republicans voting in opposition. On Tuesday, the Senate Armed Services Committee easily gave approval for Sweden and Finland’s NATO bids, setting up a vote in the Senate that could come as soon as next week. The Senate panel approved the measure by voice vote, with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), a critic of NATO expansion, taking a neutral stance by voting “present.” In order for the U.S. to approve Sweden and Finland...

Ending the Yemen War

There's a Resolution in the House, HJ Res 87, a War Powers Resolution demanding an end to all support for Saudi and UAE's war in Yemen. The new Libertarian Party is working with all the great Yemen war activists to do a pressure campaign on Congress to support it. Massie and a few other GOPs support it. We're also pushing the persuade the right from the right and the left from the left strategy to influence them. I believe that this really could be the margin to pass the resolution, that it could be the margin to get Biden to quit it, that that could be what it takes to truly end the war....

US Central Command commander Gen. Michael Kurilla said the US is considering transferring aircraft that once belonged to the Afghan Army to the Armed Forces of the Republic of Tajikistan. The aircraft was flown to Tajikistan by Afghan soldiers during the fall of the US-backed government in Kabul.  Over the weekend, Kurilla traveled to the Central Asian country for a high-level summit with President Rahmon, Minister of Defense General Colonel Sherali Mirzo. At the meeting, Kurilla said, “I came here to reaffirm our commitment to the independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of...

Not a ‘Soft Landing,’ But a Crash

After more than a decade of chained stimulus packages and extremely low rates, with trillions of dollars of monetary stimulus fueling elevated asset valuations and incentivizing an enormous leveraged bet on risk, the idea of a controlled explosion or a “soft landing” is impossible. In an interview with Marketplace, the Federal Reserve chairman admitted that “a soft landing is really just getting back to 2 percent inflation while keeping the labor market strong. And it’s quite challenging to accomplish that right now.” He went on to say that “nonetheless, we think there are pathways…for us...

30 Years With No Strategy Brought Us the War in Ukraine

Washington DC has not excelled in grand strategy; the art and science of cost-effectively employing the diplomatic, economic, and informational powers of the United States in combination with its armed forces to secure its national goals and interests. Most of the strategic decisions to use American military power that were made over the last 30 years resulted in one of two strategic outcomes: abject failure (Somalia, Haiti, Afghanistan, and Iraq) or a new regional status quo that is untenable without a permanent U.S. military presence far from America’s borders (the Balkans). The reasons...

No, Disney World Isn’t the First of ‘One Thousand Liechtensteins’

One of the stranger narratives coming out of the controversy over Disney's "special district" in Florida is the notion that Disney's Florida property is some sort of truly independent self-governing entity operating without government oversight. Most claims in this regard wildly overestimate the degree to which Disney enjoys self-governance. Some also claim that Disney's Florida special district represents some sort of model for a truly "private city" in the model of a sovereign city-state. Or as one Twitter commenter put it, "Unironically, Walt Disney style private city-states is my...

Russia has targeted a number of sites in Ukraine that have been used for Western weapons deliveries, local officials said, as the Biden administration rejected demands from Moscow to stop arming Ukraine.  A Ukrainian railway official reported that five stations were struck by Russian shells and 16 trains were delayed. According to Politico, the railway sites were used to facilitate weapons transfers to Kiev.  Russian strikes in the central Vynnytsia region left five people dead and 18 injured, Ukrainian officials said, while a rail facility near the city of Lviv caught fire following a...
