Polls show the American people consider Joe Biden a failed President.
Biden is consistently putting America last.
And Joe Biden showed his true colors by issuing this awful ultimatum.
Biden proposed a $106 billion slush fund for wars in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.
The point of this spending spree is to package the $61 billion for Joe Biden’s failed and increasingly unpopular war in Ukraine with money for more popular Republican priorities like defending Taiwan was a Communist Chinese invasion and aid to Israel as they carry out military operations to destroy Hamas.
New House Speaker Mike Johnson made his first official move as House Speaker a call for funding for Israel’s response to the Hamas terror attacks.
Many conservatives pointed out that there have been so many problems here domestically, created under Democrat rule, that the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives may have been wise to consider an America First policy as his first order of business.
But to his credit, Johnson declared funding Biden’s globalist scheme in Ukraine a nonstarter, insisting instead that the GOP is prepared to move a $14 billion Israel aid bill, which Johnson insisted will be paid for by slashing spending for Joe Biden’s 87,000 new IRS agents.
America is $33 trillion in debt and can’t afford to fund wars all over the globe.
The Biden administration responded to the House GOP’s alternative spending bill by threatening to veto the measure.
“Moreover, the bill would create a dangerous precedent by demanding partisan poison pill offsets in return for meeting core national security needs of the United States. This bill would break with the normal, bipartisan approach to providing emergency national security assistance by conditioning funding on offsets, politicizing aid to Israel, and treating Israel differently from our other allies and partners. And that new and damaging precedent would have devastating implications for our safety and alliances in the years ahead. The egregiousness of this particular offset is it adds to the deficit and would help some wealthy individuals and large corporations cheat on their taxes,” the statement read.
“If the President were presented with this bill, he would veto it,” the statement concluded.
Hamas is holding 500 Americans hostage, and Joe Biden’s number one priority is not securing their release and getting the Americans home.
Joe Biden issued a veto threat over this bill because passing a stand-alone Israel aid bill throws a monkey wrench into his globalist agenda.
That’s because separating the money for Israel out from the Ukraine funding makes it far less likely House Republicans will pass any more money for Ukraine.
Biden’s veto threat for Israel money comes on the heels of a bombshell Time Magazine article where Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s top aides admit their country is losing the war and corrupt officials are stealing all the money that comes in.
The war in Ukraine is a fiscal and military disaster.
And Joe Biden showed he only cares about what’s going on in Israel up to the point that it allows him to bully Republicans into dumping more taxpayer money down the drain for the war in Ukraine.
