The Republican Party is currently exacerbating several crises that they believe will advantage them in the upcoming November elections.
Presently, it seems the Republicans are opting out of negotiations concerning border issues. This strategy is likely aimed at undermining President Biden’s re-election prospects while providing a political platform for former President Donald Trump.
There are indications that Congressional Republicans might withdraw support from Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. Such a move could effectively hand over a key American ally to Russia. This action risks emboldening America’s adversaries to pursue goals contrary to U.S. interests. Moreover, it could tarnish America’s reputation as a reliable partner, potentially pushing our allies towards agreements with other major powers, such as China, to the detriment of U.S. interests. Donald Trump and the Republicans have been currying favor with the Russia for the better part of the decade, and the relationship has been mutual beneficial for both.
Russia is currently operating on a war footing, with increased wartime production. Despite suffering over 300,000 casualties in Ukraine, its large population allows it to compensate for these losses.
If the United States ceases its support for Ukraine, it could prompt Russia to extend its military aggression into Europe. This possibility is a topic of active discussion among European military circles, with some anticipating a potential invasion by 2027.
Donald Trump is actively encouraging rebellion, urging states to emulate Texas in its defiance of federal authority. We are in the midst of an unrecognized national emergency.
These developments are not merely coincidental.
