Europeans and Deep Staters Scheme to Deliver Weapons to Ukraine, Even If Trump Stops Weapons Deliveries

Once again, the American Deep State and the international foreign policy blob are scheming to take foreign policy into their own hands and reject the policies supported by voters and their duly-elected president.

They're doing this to Save Democracy, you understand.

The U.S. and other Western countries are considering transferring to NATO a U.S.-led multinational group that coordinates the shipment of weapons to Ukraine, one of several new proposals that could help maintain the flow of arms to Kyiv under a second Donald Trump presidency.

During the NATO foreign ministerial meeting in Brussels Wednesday and Thursday, officials are expected to discuss a range of options, including gradually moving the organization -- called the Ukraine Defense Contact Group -- into the alliance's control, according to three European officials and a U.S. official with knowledge of the internal deliberations. The goal would be to finalize the move at the NATO leaders' summit in Washington in July, one of the officials said.

...

Transferring the group to NATO would be a significant move toward cementing Western support for Ukraine's war for the foreseeable future, amid Europe's fear of the return of Trump to the White House. In the near term, domestic politics in the U.S. and other countries is already threatening to cut off funding to send Kyiv additional weapons.

Formalizing the group within NATO would go a long way toward protecting support for Ukraine from changes in U.S. and Western governments, experts said -- and particularly from Trump.

"There's a feeling among, not the whole group but a part of the NATO group, that thinks it is better to institutionalize the process just in case of a Trump re-election," said Jim Townsend, a former Pentagon and NATO official. "And that's something that the U.S. is going to have to get used to hearing, because that is a fear, and a legitimate one.

"Pulling this under NATO kind of isolates it from a Trump presidency, or even from a U.S. that might get distracted by China and can't keep it going or can't get his own funding act together," he added.


Mitch McConnell, for his part, says he's staying in the Senate to fight for the promiscuous foreign interventions that have served us so well this century.

Despite his plans to step down as party leader, McConnell said, "I'm not leaving the Senate." He added, "I'm particularly involved in actually fighting back against the isolationist movement in my own party and so many others as well."

McConnell mentioned Ukraine's fight against Russia, a cause to which the US has allocated tens of billions of dollars.

"The symbol, lately, is 'are we gonna help Ukraine or not?' And I think it's extremely important that we do that," McConnell said.

Some people thought the "symbol" was whether or not we're going to defend the American border, but you disagreed.

...

McConnell said that he finds it "more troublesome" that others appear to be "heading in that direction, making arguments that I think are easily refuted."

He added, "We're not losing any of our troops, the Ukrainians are the ones doing the fighting. If the Russians take Ukraine, some NATO country would be next and then we will be right in the middle of it."

Ah -- the Domino Theory. It just gets more and more compelling every f*cking decade.

Completely coincidentally, Biden just made up a new rule based on his authority as tyrant which purports to guarantee the subversive, traitorous Deep State their jobs for life.

The Biden administration has implemented a new rule making it more difficult to fire federal workers, a move that comes as former President Trump promises a 'deep state' revamp. The rule aims to protect nonpartisan civil servants from political interference, ensuring they can carry out their responsibilities in the best interest of the American people.

Key Details:

The new rule bars career civil servants from being reclassified as political appointees or other at-will workers who can be easily dismissed.

The rule is a response to "Schedule F," an executive order issued by Trump in 2020 that sought to reclassify federal employees and reduce their job security protections.

The rule clarifies that civil service protections accrued by employees cannot be taken away regardless of job type and that policymaking classifications apply to non-career, political appointments.

...

The new rule could counter a future Schedule F order by outlining procedural requirements for reclassifying federal employees. It also clarifies that civil service protections accrued by employees cannot be taken away regardless of job type and that policymaking classifications apply to non-career, political appointments.

The rule has been applauded by good government groups and liberal think tanks, who view cementing federal worker protections as a top priority. This is especially important given the conservative Heritage Foundation's "Project 2025," which calls for replacing existing government employees with conservative alternatives to eliminate what some Republicans call the "deep state" governmental bureaucracy.
