We have witnessed a revolution in this country in the last two years in which constitutional and even human rights have been suspended. To this day, a coagulation shot is imposed on our soldiers in the military. But senators like Ben Sasse remained silent for two years as if in quarantine. I didn’t even know some of them were still in Washington. We also have cartels killing Americans by sending unfathomable amounts of deadly poison and criminal aliens. But crickets. But the moment Ukraine hits the news, there is no amount of money and guns that is too much to give the country. Her only criticism of Biden is that he’s not sending help fast enough.
Oh, and inflation is just a pipe dream. So not only do they love Ukrainians more than Americans, they are actually raising inflation with more printed money and prolonging a stalemate war that will lead to further supply chain shortages and civilian deaths.
After giving Ukraine $13.6 billion, Congress almost unanimously passed a lend-lease program to give Ukraine’s shady military, mixed with prominent neo-Nazi forces, essentially any weapon but nuclear weapons . But that wasn’t enough. Biden introduced a $33 billion arms and aid bill to Ukraine, and Congressional Democrats upped the price to $40 billion. Combined with the first $13 billion, that’s more than double the amount we’re spending on interest on the national debt.
So what is the GOP answer? Yes, let’s get this done even faster, but our only objection is that it’s not tied to the $10 billion COVID bill. But that bill — which is a handout for Pfizer and Moderna because, you know, they’re pretty poor — only bothers them because they want to use it as a bargaining chip to require Biden to cover Title 42 throwbacks at the border keep. In fact, they do not oppose his COVID policy laws at all, just as they do not oppose his Ukraine law. And even on the border, Title 42 is sort of an afterthought to the fact that our government is collaborating with the cartels, and that Republicans should demand that the $40 billion spent on the Ukrainian border be used to arm the National Guards of Texas and Arizona are issued against the cartels.
You see, the Republicans, with all their sham political struggle against the Democrats, are never going to fight the issue that matters, the way it matters, and when it matters. When it really matters, they’re on the other side — not America’s side.
To to roll call, Senator Lindsey praised Graham Biden for agreeing to split the bills of COVID and Ukraine. “I don’t care as long as the money goes to the war cause,” he said. “It is in our interest to defeat Putin is priceless.”
Yes, all the money, guns, and effort he would never put into defending Americans’ freedom from COVID-Fascism or our border from the cartels, he will put to Ukraine. The sky is the limit. He also called for Russia to be named as a state sponsor of terror, but of course no such call for naming the Mexican cartels that actually concern our security more than anything else in the world.
Senator Ben Sasse had no qualms about where that money goes and whether it goes towards Hunter Biden’s extracurricular activities like the bioweapons facilities. No, everything is spotless in Ukraine and we “shouldn’t get bogged down in party politics”.
“It’s really simple: if we want Ukraine to win, we have to keep arming them to the teeth,” he said. “A clean Ukraine law will have the votes. Let’s do that.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made it clear that “we need to do it fast.”
“We all agree that the most important thing happening in the world right now is the war in Ukraine.” McConnell said announced the bipartisan agreement with the President at a press conference on Tuesday.
How’s that for a bold contrast between the parties! There is nothing to fear here at home. But it’s even worse. Your strategy for Ukraine is actually damaging to domestic politics.
Just hours after the text of the bill was released Tuesday, nearly three-quarters of House Republicans voted with all Democrats to approve the funding. only 57 Republicans voted no.
Republican leaders are naming bidenflation as the central theme of their midterm campaign. However, they have backed nearly every major spending bill that has fueled this inflation and have shown no signs of reaching the next level of economic literacy. At a time of shortages in supplies, including weapons, they are sending supplies abroad to fuel a war in eastern Ukraine.
As long as they stoke the war instead of bringing about a solution that will end the fighting by giving up Ukraine from future NATO membership and giving up the ethnically Russian territories, this will only exacerbate the pain of supply shortages around the world. Imagine how many factories we could build for things like baby food or fertilizer.
Instead, our funding goes to neo-Nazi nationalists Groups waging a “no to surrender” campaign against Zelenskyy’s own peace deal in 2019. Ironically, if not for the Azov Brigade that we are funding now, there probably wouldn’t have been a war.
Perhaps we can all identify ourselves as Ukrainians, and our Republican politicians will pay heed to those whose lives have been shattered by Pfizer’s experimental gene therapy.
