The democraps and the rethuglicons have not been able to put aside their differences long enough to get anything done that would well, get anything done. However, that is in the past. Finally, something has been able to achieve what we thought was the unachievable and wouldn’t you just know it would have to be this:
Both the House and Senate overwhelmingly passed legislation on Thursday aimed at providing aid to Ukraine and sanctions on Russia in response to Russia’s incursion into Crimea.
Another report headlines:
Senate and House pass bills to help shore up Ukraine economy.
Ain’t that sweet? Congress finally came together to hand over another billion dollars to build up the Ukraine economy and this was after the West spent $5 billion destabilizing Ukraine = U.S. War Profiteering.
But didn’t congress have a problem coming to the aid of the long-term jobless when their benefits expired on December 28th 2013? Congressional representatives used every excuse in and out of the book to not re-instate the benefits knowing all the while that the jobless were having quite the time trying to get hired. Two million long-term jobless Americans lost their benefits and have been without assistance and without a job for three months. What have they been doing? If they’ve no job, why has there been a deafening silence and not a resounding roar? What happened to the two million long-term jobless Americans? Why have we heard not a peep from them? Was it because we’ve just ended one of the coldest winters on record? If so, where are they now? With nothing left to lose, why haven’t they taken to the streets, en masse?
To add insult to injury, the long-term jobless are finding out that congress can indeed come together in bipartisanship when furthering the war machine’s agenda, thereby enriching themselves even more because we all know that war pays the warmongers, but us?, not so much! While the long-term jobless have been busy running to the food banks to supplement their pantry and while they are struggling to pay the mortgage/rent, gas, electric and water bills, our congress is busy propping up Ukraine’s economy. Why? What’s in it for them? Let me repeat what I just wrote because I know that Americans have such short attention spans. Congress is propping up Ukraine’s economy because Ukraine has something that the U.S. wants. Have you not heard about the gold that has been shipped from Ukraine by the U.S? Now, jobless folks, how much gold do you possess? Apparently, not enough since this is what recently happened to Ukraine’s gold.
The Latest Heist: US Quietly Snatches the Ukraine’s Gold Reserves
The US has quietly transferred 33 tons of Ukrainian gold out of the country and back to vaults in the US. Presumably, this sovereign wealth transfer would be counted as partial “collateral” for a fresh round of IMF, US FED, and ECB paper debt that is currently being organized for dumping into the Ukraine’s economic black hole.
And the Ukrainians? They’re gonna soon be looking as cross-eyed broke as the two million long-term jobless Americans look right now. But, there is a silver lining to all of this for the long-term jobless Americans. The Senate on Thursday moved ahead with a bill to extend unemployment insurance benefits, three months after benefits expired for more than two million Americans. Sweet! Now, grab that goddamn bone before they yank it back!
A bipartisan group of senators announced a deal two weeks earlier that would renew federal long-term unemployment benefits for five months, retroactive to when they expired on December 28.
Retroactive? Fucking wow! Now that you’re homeless, you’re now retroactively homeless. Now how great is that? IF and that’s a big IF, they actually get this legislation signed into law, you can get your old life back. Right? I mean, the landlord was holding your apartment for you. Right? The bank didn’t foreclose on your home while assuming that congress would act in a bipartisan manner and get you back up and running with some assistance, did it? Keep being hopeful about getting this five month retroactive reprieve and then guess what? You’re right back to square one. So much for your representatives doing you a fucking favor. With representative friends like that shit, who needs enemies?
Even though you’ve been without benefits for three months and congress couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the economic plight of millions of Americans, they give a rat’s ass about the economic plight of Ukrainians because well, uh…because, well, they got gold and they want the Russians to come to heel because what stands between a worldwide economic hostile takeover by the U.S., is Brazil, Russia, India and China, the BRICs. And if the U.S. can isolate Russia and rob Russia of the ability to keep its fleet in the Black Sea and instead establish a naval base there in essence, surrounding Russia, it will.
The Russian-controlled Black Sea Fleet is based on Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula. It is headquartered at Sevastopol’, with an additional home port in Odessa. Russian interest in the Black Sea extends over more than two centuries. Catherine the Great annexed the Crimea in 1783, and subsequently established a Russian naval base at Sevastopol.
Is this all starting to make sense now? I know that Americans have been dumbed down, but damn! If you can’t see what is happening right before your very eyes and to YOU, well, then…what is there left to say? The American government is the biggest threat to this entire planet. The American government and its warmonger friends and elite fucks are hell bent on subjugating this entire planet to its evil, vile, filthy and depraved rule. The empire must be stopped and my hope is that Russia and China can stop it! Russia, do not hesitate to do what needs to be done, I beg of you! Level this hell before this hell engulfs the entire planet! And it will, because we Americans will do absolutely nothing to stop it because here in America, we are already, the walking dead!
