Mid-Morning Art Thread | Main | Google's AI: There Is No Firm Evidence That Hamas Commits Terrorism and Rape, But We Definitely Know for Certain that There are Many Attacks Against Palestinians and That Israel Engages in Disproportionate Killing of Civilians

The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition


One of the Biden/Obama Junta's greatest errors has been the destruction of American petroleum production, and the concurrent significant increase in the price of petroleum on the world markets. Of course that is their drive up the price of oil and drive us into EVs and eating bugs and living in the 18th century.

But they have also handed Russia and Iran an incredible windfall. Those two countries rely on oil revenue, and they were in financial trouble when the Trump economy took the shackles off of American production. Russia's government budget...the one they use to pay for*ts the bed at $40 oil, and Iran's is no better.

But oil has doubled in price since the stolen election of 2020, and Russia and Iran are swimming in a sea of cash. How else would they pay for their fancy new toys? Well, I guess Iran just writes checks on accounts we have helpfully unfrozen! But I digress...

North Korean Missile Used In Ukraine Was Packed Full Of U.S. Parts

short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) produced by North Korea and recently used against Ukraine by Russia relied on more than 290 foreign-sourced components, many of them originating from U.S. manufacturers. This is the alarming result of a study by Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a U.K.-based investigative organization.

More concerning, perhaps, is the fact that according to CAR's study -- which you can read in full here -- those U.S. components were manufactured within the last three years. This raises clear questions about the efficiency of United Nations sanctions placed on North Korea which are intended, above all, to disrupt its wide-ranging ballistic missile development program.

Yeah...there's another really big problem there, but the first is bad enough. Russia has the cash to buy lots of missiles from North Korea, courtesy of the drooling, senile idiot who is the mouthpiece for the worst foreign-policy administration in America's history.

That other problem is systemic...sanctions administered by the United Nations to stop or slow North Korea's ballistic missile industry are laughably ineffective. But everything the UN does is pathetic, so that shouldn't surprise anyone. Sadly, the question of whether the American corporations manufacturing some of the parts used in those missiles knew where their products were going is a question that will never be answered under a Democrat kleptocracy in D.C.

But the hits keep coming!

Russia Receives Around 400 Ballistic Missiles From Iran

Iran's provision of around 400 missiles includes many from the Fateh-110 family of short-range ballistic weapons, such as the Zolfaghar, three Iranian sources said. This road-mobile missile is capable of striking targets at a distance of between 300 and 700 km (186 and 435 miles), experts say.

So Iran's oceans of cash pays for Hamas and Hezbollah to attack our staunch ally in the Middle East, pays to build missiles that it sells to Russia, who uses their oil revenue to pay for them. And where's our cut in this lovely little circle of death? Well, we borrow money to pay for arms and cash that we send to Ukraine to fight the Russians and to Israel to fight the Islamists. And we also borrow money to buy the expensive oil that we need to run our economy.

Luckily the graft flowing from Ukraine will ensure that those elites responsible for this foreign-policy clusterf*ck will have wonderful retirements!

But Trump said "pussy!"

Doesn't that make perfect sense?
