Oh, silly, silly left-wing journalists.
They try so hard to sound official and credible, but their pesky little habit of just making stuff up on the spot can sometimes get the better of them.
Especially when they do so in front of people who actually know what they’re talking about.
The MSNBC host Katy Tur had her own little Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez moment on Monday when she made a claim she either had taken for granted or made up on the spot, that Republicans had been opposed to arming Ukraine against Russian-backed separatists.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
You know, because Trump-Russia…or something.
“At the Republican National Convention, the Republican party decided not to arm Ukraine,” she said, although, unfortunately for the narrative Tur was trying to push, she was speaking to someone who actually knew what they were talking about, i.e. Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg
“But Ukraine is armed today, Katy. They are armed now,” Nunberg retorted.
This obviously caused a glitch in Tur’s little Trump-Russia Matrix, forcing her to say “I don’t know” before saying goodbye to her guests.
The Trump administration and Republicans in Congress have, in fact, strongly supported arming Ukrainians, as even Tur’s fellow journalists (I’m using that term lightly) at the Washington Post admit:
Administration officials confirmed that the State Department this month approved a commercial license authorizing the export of Model M107A1 Sniper Systems, ammunition, and associated parts and accessories to Ukraine, a sale valued at $41.5 million. These weapons address a specific vulnerability of Ukrainian forces fighting a Russian-backed separatist movement in two eastern provinces. There has been no approval to export the heavier weapons the Ukrainian government is asking for, such as Javelin antitank missiles.
Congress authorized such sales in 2014 in the Ukraine Freedom Support Act, but the Obama administration never authorized large commercial or government sales, a move widely seen as a de facto decision not to provide lethal weapons to the Ukraine military. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who co-sponsored the law, praised the Trump administration’s move.
So you’re telling me Trump was all about arming Ukrainians pushing back against Russian aggression, while Obama did nothing?
There’s more, the Washington Free Beacon tells us:
During the 2016 Republican National Convention, Trump campaign officials decided to amend the Republican platform by changing the language on U.S. assistance to Ukraine. Instead of saying the United States would give them “lethal defensive weapons,” they changed the language to say the U.S. would give them “appropriate assistance.”
But muh Russia collusion.
US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony
The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.
The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns
Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.
New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
