At the Ron Paul Institute, Daniel McAdams brings readers’ attention to a recent appearance by Candace Owens on Tucker Carlson Tonight. Owens accuses Ukrainian officials of using American taxpayer dollars to fund lavish lifestyles with Lamborghinis and properties in Switzerland. Watch Owens’ appearance below. McAdams writes:
On Carlson’s show, Owens made the excellent point that just one day after the ignominious US retreat from Afghanistan – where we left billions in advanced weapons behind – the Biden Administration announced that it was teaming up with European partners to push for Ukraine’s accession to NATO.
As Owens put it:
We left one money-laundering operation in which we gave 50 billion of American taxpayers’ hard-earned money and we jumped right into the next one. And how much money did we give Ukraine so far? 50 billion dollars! But that’s not enough for this welfare queen. He wants to keep it coming. And that’s what he is: President Zelensky is America’s welfare queen.
Owens went on to claim, based on her reporting from Europe, that Ukrainian political leaders are benefitting from US handouts to purchase luxury property in Switzerland!
Take that, flag-waving and inflation-suffering middle America.
I have often pointed out that America’s anti-American foreign policy at the hands of the US military-industrial complex will only really be challenged when blue-collar, middle America understands that US foreign policy has nothing to do with patriotism or keeping America safe from foreign threats, but is in fact – as Candace Owens puts it so well – a money-laundering scheme concocted by America’s (mostly liberal) elites to pocket billions with the sleight of hand claim that said billions stolen from them will make them safe and vanquish the bad guys overseas.
Middle America who labors to pay for the “defense” of America would be shocked and dismayed at how leftish and “woke” are the people spending their money. They are San Francisco, not Brazoria. The Pentagon is far left wing, not pro-America. Duh! But wave your flag and stay asleep.
An overseas enemy is critical to this ponzi scheme and there has been a steady stream of “bad actors” hyped by the ruling classes in the US to play that role. Saddam, Milosevic, Gaddafi, Assad, Lukashenko, Putin, and so on and so on. None of these “bad guys” have ever expressed the will – nor did they ever have the means – to in any way harm the United States or its citizens. But nevertheless trillions have been burned up building up and then vanquishing these chimeras.
It is a scam.
Who benefits? Elites in the targeted countries, who find themselves at the receiving end of an endless pipeline of US dollars to do the bidding of Washington’s liberal elite. And of course politicians and especially employees of the US military-industrial complex at home. Oh the mansions in McLean built from the sweat of coal miners in West Virginia who felt they were being patriotic supporting ever-increasing military budgets.
The fact is there is nothing patriotic or pro-American about bleeding America dry to make elites at home and abroad stinkingly rich and powerful.
