Dead-brain Biden administration strikes again


From Reuters:



The U.S. has stopped issuing export licenses for most civilian firearms and ammunition for 90 days for all non-governmental users, the Commerce Department said on Friday, citing national security and foreign policy interests.


The Commerce Department did not provide further details for the pause, which also includes shotguns and optical sights, but said an urgent review will assess the "risk of firearms being diverted to entities or activities that promote regional instability, violate human rights, or fuel criminal activities."


Export licences for Ukraine and Israel, as well as some other close allies, will be exempted from the temporary halt in exports.

Let's worship at rabid hypocrisy's altar?


ZeroHedge framed this Biden administration action correctly:



[L]et's pause to marvel at the soaring hypocrisy of the US government -- which has armed murderous autocrats, Islamic extremists and Mexican drug cartels -- expressing concern about American weapons being used to "promote regional instability, violate human rights or fuel criminal activities."


Naturally, it [the ban] won't apply to Ukraine or Israel, or some 40 other foreign governments that are partners to the United States in an export-control pact.


However, it will apply to some of the most important markets for the domestic firearms industry, including Brazil, Thailand and Guatemala.

The moral? — It is not just the gargantuan hypocrisy (of this) that nauseates


It is also this constantly warmongering Biden administration's continual attempts to virtue signal — while screwing the US economy — and forcibly subjecting We the People to its enslaving whims.
