On Thursday, the Pentagon revealed that a multi-billion dollar accounting error had been discovered in records pertaining to the United States' shipments of weapons to Ukraine.
As a result, that money is still available for the Defense Department to use to send more weapons to the war-torn nation, and since the amount was technically already given the green light by Congress, no additional approval from lawmakers is necessary.

Those attacks were “accompanied by an information campaign prepared in advance in Washington and London, designed to destabilize the social and political situation, [and to] undermine the constitutional foundations and sovereignty of Russia,” the security chief stressed.

Small farms are significant emitters of nitrogen, according to Biden’s “climate czar” John Kerry who is pushing for the U.S. federal government to crack down on farming in America to combat “global warming.”
Kerry insists that the United States must massively reduce farming to meet the radical “green agenda” goals laid out by World Economic Forum (WEF) and the United Nations (UN).
According to the former Secretary of State, the world can’t tackle climate change without first addressing the agriculture sector’s emissions – and farmers in the US are front and center of his plans.

Reeves, who mobilized the National Guard in response to an urgent call for help from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, expressed concerns over the Biden administration’s handling of border security, citing the influx of drugs and illegal immigration as a threat to public safety.

The Dutch government is considering plans to restrict cattle numbers to two cows per football pitch-sized field, putting them on a collision course with the country’s farmers.
Mark Rutte, the Dutch prime minister, has not yet approved the proposed limit of up to “0.35 hectares of grassland per livestock unit”, which is part of a range of measures designed to help the Netherlands meet European Union climate change targets.
The aim is to reduce the large quantities of polluting methane, produced by manure and fertiliser, in grassland-poor areas, while other fields will be converted to grassland, which is good for biodiversity and water quality.
Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs (D) announced Wednesday that she had made decisions regarding another batch of bills sent to her desk by the legislature.
Of these nine bills, Hobbs vetoed six, including bills on natural resource conservation, modified firearms, and the voting equipment used in state elections.
Regarding the election equipment, HB 2613, sponsored by State Representative Steve Montenegro (R-Goodyear), would have required all vote recording and tabulation machines used in Arizona elections to be 100 percent manufactured in the U.S. and have all parts sourced in the country. Starting in 2028, the Arizona Secretary of State would be prohibited from certifying any election results from a machine that did not comply with the law.
However, Hobbs wrote that this bill would ultimately have a “catastrophic” effect on Arizona by making it near impossible for the state to carry out elections.
Montenegro responded to the veto, calling it a loss for American manufacturing and election security.
