$40 Billion for Biden to “Unilaterally” Increase His “War-Making Powers”

Congressional leaders struck a deal Monday to send $39.8 billion in military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine that could be taken up by the House as soon as Tuesday, Axios reported. Instead of $33 billion, our politicians gave Zelenskyy nearly $40 billion. Nothing quite like giving a man with dementia more money to make war.

It’s billions more than Biden or Zelenskyy requested. Republicans did it because Democrats agreed to drop a key priority: separating the Ukraine aid from roughly $10 billion in funding for the coronavirus pandemic.

“Congress once again demonstrates its eagerness to constrain the unilateral war-making powers of the president, this time by giving him $7 billion more in war funding than he requested,” reporter Michael Tracey wrote on Twitter.

A lot of the money will go to pay the salaries of its bureaucrats.

The concession was made after President Biden told Congress earlier in the day to separate the bills — emphasizing the urgency of passing the Ukraine package. But they gave BIDEN of all people more war-making powers without even checking with Americans in any way. They do not care what we think.

We’re talking about them jumping to the tune of a man with very limited cognitive ability.

Republicans want to tie an amendment to the bill that would prevent the administration from rescinding Title 42 at the end of the month. However, they didn’t even get that for $40 billion.

Title 42 is very important but so is giving a senile man war-making power.

There are currently two amendments being pushed on the Hill regarding Title 42, Axios reports. There’s a bipartisan bill proposed by Sens. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), as well as one introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

Cruz’s amendment goes much further and calls for codifying the immigration ban. His amendment is likely to fail, given it has no Democratic support.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer did signal that he may hold a vote on the Title 42 amendment, CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted.

So, about the war. How do Americans feel? Rasmussen has polled prodigiously on the subject.

  • 46% still want the US to join in any possible larger war in Europe. That is down from 49%.
  • 42% believe the war is a stalemate.
  • 72% of voters see the Russia-Ukraine conflict breaking out into a larger war in Europe. That is down from 80%.

Do people realize that even a cold war with China and Russia will be very costly for the United States?

UKRAINE IS A BIG CONCERN?

Despite the administration’s best efforts, Ukraine is not large in peoples’ minds as the economy crashes. At least not according to this poll.

Laundered in Ukraine and huge amounts sent back to those that voted for it. It is that simple.

Many $billions will make it back to the Democrats and Rinos that voted for this. It’s that simple. Ukraine is a huge money laundering operation.

And Nancy Pelosi blasphemes God when she intones the $40 billion are to feed the poor and starving on Ukraine when everyone knows it’s to send weapons from the US to the Ukraine against Russia. Considering the poor malnourished people we have here in the US, wouldn’t the money be better spent here instead of proping up the criminal element in the Ukraine. Come on people, THINK. ALL of this started when Biden was Obama’s VP. Remember always, before this Ukraine business started in the media, we couldn’t get $16 Billion to construct a wall across our southern border to keep illegals and terrorists out of the country. Crap, with $40 billion you could construct a border wall around the Ukraine over 2 times compaired to Once across our southern border. We could also br the breadbasket of the world and the world have much cheaper had we not allowed the Democrats steal the election and put Biden in office.

Why should the U.S. get involved with Ukraine when it’s a Europea problem not ours. If Biden wants to challenge Russia with his “puffery,” let it be that. We don’t need another politician’s war like Afghanistan or Vietnam. Keep the $$$$ and arms at home.

Biden is to Ukraine as Johnson was to Vietnam. If we don’t control Biden’s Administration and straighten out Congress we could easily see WWIII and that would be the end of life on this planet. INCLUDING all the prepers.

They sure work fast when they want to waste money and destabilize the world. RINOs do not mind the illegal invasion, and they can use rescinding title 42 later as an election issue. Rescinding helps republican wins in November. The elites want debt and war with Russia, and the dems/RINOs do what they want.
