US Senate votes to resurrect World War II-era policy to help Ukraine amid Russian invasion  

The U.S. Senate voted to resurrect the lend-lease program that enabled America to send weapons to Britain and other allies in World War II, in order to bolster Ukraine’s effort against the Russian invaders. 

The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022, S.3522, passed the Senate by voice vote late Wednesday. The bill aims “to provide enhanced authority for the President to enter into agreements with the Government of Ukraine to lend or lease defense articles to that Government to protect civilian populations in Ukraine from Russian military invasion.”

Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine’s minister of foreign affairs, said that he is “grateful to the U.S. Senate for passing the Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act.” He called it an “important first step towards a lend-lease program to expedite the delivery of military equipment to Ukraine. Looking forward to its swift passage in the House and signing by the U.S. President.” Read more and see video here.

Biden's Radical Leftist Supreme Court Nominee Confirmed

The United States Senate on Thursday voted to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the 116th Justice of the United States Supreme Court. All Democrats in the Senate voted to confirm Biden's SCOTUS nominee, joined by three Republicans: Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Mitt Romney of Utah.

Vice President Kamala Harris presided over the 53-47 roll call vote as senators called out votes from their desks on the Senate floor.

Just before the vote, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the occasion "a wonderful day, a joyous day, an inspiring day for the Senate, for the Supreme Court and for the United States of America."

One of the narrowest Supreme Court confirmation votes in history, the final step in Judge Jackson's path to a lifetime appointment on the highest court in the United States follows a much less chaotic set of hearings than Democrats and their leftist activists made Trump's appointees go through. There were no disruptions inside the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing room as senators questioned Judge Jackson, no baseless accusations of sexual misconduct in anyone's past, no demands for additional investigations, no public criticism of family members, and no Michael Avenatti-type characters.
