US to ‘Work Closely’ With Poland and Others to Gather More Information on Tuesday’s Strike
The US will “continue to work closely” with Poland and other allies to “gather more information” about the deadly explosion that occurred in Poland yesterday, killing two, according to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. The Ukraine Defense Contact Group, designed to coordinate support for Ukraine from foreign allies around the world, is meeting for the seventh time on Wednesday. Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley are hosting the meeting virtually from the Pentagon.
Austin highlighted Russia’s strike across Ukraine on Tuesday before reports of a strike in Poland emerged. Russia is putting “civilians and civilian infrastructure in its gun sights,” he said, reaffirming that Russia’s targeting of civilians and the continued missile strikes “only deepen the resolve of the contact group,” and “only intensify Ukraine’s determination.”
Air Defense Improvements for Ukraine the New Top NATO Priority After Russia’s Missile Barrage
NATO Secretary General Jans Stoltenberg confirmed one of the alliance’s top priorities is to provide more air defense systems to Kyiv, after Russia launched its biggest wave of missile attacks on Ukrainian cities in more than a month on Tuesday. He then added that he had spoken with Polish President Andrzej Duda and US President Joe Biden after a missile landed in eastern Poland Tuesday, killing two people near the Ukrainian border. The NATO chief said in the same news conference that preliminary analysis suggest the Poland missile incident was “likely” caused by a Ukrainian air defense missile, adding, “This is not Ukraine’s fault. Russia bears ultimate responsibility, as it continues its illegal war against Ukraine.”
The explosion marked the first time a NATO country has been directly hit during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, with global leaders working to allay fears of potential escalation in the conflict as a result of the strike. “We agreed that we need to stay vigilant, calm and closely coordinated. We will continue to consult and monitor the situation very closely,” Stoltenberg said. “NATO stands united, and we will always do what is necessary to protect and defend all allies.”

Trump Announces 2024 Run For President
Former President Donald Trump is throwing his hat in the ring once again. Trump made a formal announcement that he will pursue a third campaign for the White House in a Tuesday evening address at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla.
‘We Will Win’: “For millions of Americans, the past two years under Joe Biden have been a time of pain, hardship, anxiety and despair,” Trump declared. He noted the fierce assault on his America First movement that will undoubtedly be ratcheted up all the more with this move. “We will be attacked,” he said. “We will be slandered. We will be persecuted just as I have been… but we will not be intimidated. We will persevere. We will stand tall in the storm. We will march forward into the torrent. And we in the end, we’ll win. Our country will win. We will win.” Can Trump pull off a Cleveland comeback?
Kevin McCarthy Wins GOP Nomination For House Speaker, But Will He Have the Votes in January?
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Tuesday captured the Republican nomination for House Speaker by a 188-31 count, but that result leaves him 30 votes shy of the 218 he would need in January to secure the position should the GOP take back the House.
In His Corner: Outspoken Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA), who has sparred with Republican congressional leaders in the past, was an unexpected McCarthy supporter. “If we don’t unify behind Kevin McCarthy, we’re opening up the door for the Democrats to be able to recruit some of our Republicans,” she said. McCarthy is far from secure in the saddle…
