Biden signs Ukraine lend-lease act.
Yesterday, Biden signed into law a bill—Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022— that expedites the process of sending military aid to Ukraine.
What it does: The legislation cuts bureaucratic red tape and allows the “gifting of equipment” with the stipulation that recipient countries will eventually repay the United States.
The history: The original lend-lease act was created in 1941 to help the allies defeat Hitler’s Germany. It was crucial to the war efforts. Members of congress like Pelosi reiterated the historical theme that, like in 1941, Democracy is now under threat in Europe and around the world.
Notable Republicans who voted against the measure were Matt Gaetz, Paul A. Gosar, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Thomas Massie. They see the measure as a major escalation in the war that will extend the conflict instead of bringing peace. They also cite rising inflation, peak fentanyl overdoses, and other domestic difficulties that require immediate attention.
The Biden Administration encouraged racial rationing of COVID treatment
Utah developed a point-based system for prioritizing COVID patient care during the pandemic. More points were allocated for being non-white than for having congestive heart failure, meaning patients were less likely to be treated if they were white even if they had more severe health issues.
Encouraged by Biden Administration: New documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon now show that Utah was aware of the illegality but was encouraged to maintain the policy by the Biden Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services.
Not just Utah: Minnesota and New York also prioritized non-white residents for monoclonal antibodies. Vermont prioritized non-white residents for vaccines.
Big picture: During the pandemic, woke racial policies deprioritized the healthcare of white Americans. The move was encouraged by the Biden Administration.
