The House passed a bill for $40 billion in weapons and other aid to Ukraine and the war effort on Tuesday. That was $7 billion on top of what Joe Biden had asked for and on top of the $13.6 billion that was passed last month. Joe Biden said they needed more because they had already spent everything.
While 57 Republicans voted against the new bill for $40 billion, most voted for it. It still has to go through the Senate.
Congress had already passed a bill that gave Joe Biden the right to provide virtually anything out of our own stockpiles to Ukraine. Meanwhile, officials are raising questions about how our own stockpiles are being depleted with this effort. There are also big questions about whether they are ensuring the weapons are getting to where they’re supposed to go. Obviously, they are getting some or the Ukrainians would have been toast already. But where is the spreadsheet of what money is being allocated, not just from us, but from all the other countries, and the accountability for where it is going? How do we know some of it isn’t going out the back door? The answers given by people like Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin were not reassuring — his answer was we basically have to trust the Ukrainians.
But instead of getting serious thought and questions from the Democrats about these important concerns, what we got was this from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): that we should just go along with all this because she quotes scripture and says we should feed the hungry.

I can’t believe she has the gall to say this. No, wait. It’s Nancy Pelosi. I can believe almost anything about her.
The passage from the Gospel is talking about individual charitable acts, not Congressional vultures justifying taking our money from us.
Americans can’t find formula to feed their babies, inflation is at a 40-year high, gas prices just hit a record average — the highest ever — and Nancy Pelosi doesn’t even care about the homeless who are sprawled across the streets of San Francisco. And she’s quoting scripture at us? Also, most of this has nothing at all to do with feeding the hungry so it’s just straight-up nonsense.
Pelosi is pulling out Christian scripture in a cynical attempt to appeal to Americans’ natural generosity. But meanwhile, she says nothing against leftists who are harassing Catholics and Catholic churches to push abortion and the killing of babies. So her scripture citing rings mighty hollow.
We see leftists commonly resort to this kind of tactic while at the same time attacking people for their Christianity.
Democrats are the party of satan. We are wasting another 40 billion to the third most corrupt country in the world. Ukraine has some of the richest oligarchs in the world who have not contributed jack shit to their war effort.
There is no vital national security interest for the United States in the Russian speaking eastern border of Ukraine. Screw them.
Call your senators now and tell them to oppose this waste of American taxpayer money.
If the forty billion goes through, we will be at 80 billion in Ukraine. 10% for the big guy? This is wasteful of American taxpayer’s dollars. The skirmish in Ukraine is at a stalemate and will be for time to come.
The put out doll named Nancy Nonsense the name her fits
Democrats are not good at following up their actions, just doing something and taking credit for it. $100 billion of COVID19 aid is just missing… evaporated. They throw money (OUR money) at issues and when that fails, they throw MORE money at it.
Trump spent taxpayer money like it belonged to him. Pelosi and the rest of those whores spend taxpayer money like there’s an endless supply.
Can any of our politicians provide any updates on the hundreds of Americans left behind in Afghanistan? It’s been 254 days since they were abandoned. Didn’t think so.
They have a better chance of escaping Afghanistan, traveling to Mexico and sneaking across our southern border than they have of this worthless, failing, incompetent regime caring about their plight… which idiot Biden himself created.
Maybe one of the traffickers can get our people out. Milley is too busy shopping for lipstick to formulate any type of military solution.
