US Lawmakers Trying To Overcome Divergences Over Ukraine Aid

Apparently, American congressmen are trying to reach an agreement on how to continue helping the Kiev regime in the proxy war against Russia. According to a recent media report, a bipartisan group is currently working to overcome differences between Republicans and Democrats over continued support for Ukraine. The objective is to find mutually favorable terms for the parties to continue financing the war. In practice, the case shows how there is no substantial difference between American political parties, both being led by pro-war warmongers.

The report was published by The Hill. According to the newspaper, a bipartisan group presented a new proposal for an aid package for Ukraine. The new project includes points favorable to both sides of Congress, therefore having a better chance of being approved by Democrats and Republicans.

In this sense, the lawmakers propose the formulation of a package in defense of “democracies and borders”. In other words, Republican priorities, such as protecting the southern borders against the entry of illegal migrants, are being included in the previously Democrat proposal. Furthermore, the plan foresees broad aid not only to the Kiev neo-Nazi regime, but also to Israel and Taiwan – which are two points considered strategic by both parties.

“Republicans had demanded border policy reforms as a condition for Ukraine aid, but conservatives in both chambers shot down a previous version of the Senate bill that contained a border component. Centrist lawmakers are hoping their new proposal can garner more support. Their legislation, called the Defending Borders, Defending Democracies Act, would allocate $66.32 billion to the Defense Department to support embattled nations, including roughly $47 billion for Ukraine, $10 billion for Israel, $5 billion for the Indo-Pacific and $2 billion to support U.S. Central Command operations. It also has border provisions, including reinstating the “Remain in Mexico” policy for one year, and would strip the package of any humanitarian aid for Gaza, Ukraine and other global hot spots,” the article reads.

According to the article, Republican Brian Fitzpatrick and Democrat Jared Golden are leading the bipartisan group and pressuring their allied lawmakers to vote in favor of the proposal. They emphasize that, despite the real problems arising from the policy of US systematic military support, there is a deep crisis in Ukraine, which is why the country urgently needs more weapons to continue fighting. Apparently, Russian victory on the battlefield is a common fear for all American politicians, which leads them to try to pacify their differences in order to reach a common agreement.

An important point of the topic is precisely the plan to cut all forms of humanitarian aid. According to the project’s authors, the US should focus on military assistance, while “the rest of the world” – considered militarily weaker – should make efforts to send more humanitarian aid. Lawmakers believe that by cutting humanitarian help and restricting support to military issues it will be possible to prevent the American state from having large expenses, saving financial resources.

“While our responsibility to protect American interests and democracy is great, so too is our duty to be mindful of America’s resources. That is why our bill narrows prior foreign aid proposals to critical military essentials for Ukraine and Israel. The international community has the will and resources to provide important humanitarian assistance to both Ukraine and Gaza, and the United States should offer to aid in the logistics of its delivery as necessary,” Golden and Fitzpatrick wrote in a joint letter.

The authors of the article, however, do not consider the bipartisan proposal strong enough to be approved. The main point of divergence seems to be not Ukraine or any external topic but precisely the internal situation. Republicans and Democrats have a deep divergence when it comes to immigration policy and do not seem willing to give up on any point of their demands. Democrats want to keep borders open while Republicans want their severe immigration control bill passed without revisions. There is an impasse that could prevent the conclusion of an agreement.

“The bill is unlikely to garner sufficient support. Democrats are already throwing cold water on it (…) And many Republicans have said they would only support a bill that includes all of the demands in their H.R. 2 border bill, which passed without a single Democratic vote,” Hill’s journalists added.

However, regardless of whether or not the agreement is approved, it is necessary to emphasize how there is no real difference between Republicans and Democrats when it comes to the US’ aggressive foreign policy. Both sides have ideologically motivated internal differences, but they agree to continue supporting American proxy wars abroad. This clearly shows how there is no “better side” in American politics, with both Republicans and Democrats subservient to the warmonger establishment.

politicians in the west work hard to get elected. even in the smallest town, it takes a lot of bribes to become mayor. every small step towards the u.s. congress requires more and more bribes, contacts, favors, promises, deception. attorneys.. we’re talking about millions of dollars, and everyone is dreaming of being george s’s horse. they’re competing to come up with the most stupid stuff to please him. even if they vote against each other, it is part of the s’s script

don’t be fooled. these scenarios are not the work of one person, they are written by teams of thousands of specialists, evaluated by computers and professionally tuned according to applied sociology to deceive the public. if george so. would put everything on democrats, it would be too easy to adress. no, he always plays his game on both sides, bribing one team, then the other, makes it look like the real thing. people are stupid. most voters will never understand how it works.

the conclusion is that the global deep state cannot be overthrown by elections, revolutions, disasters, wars, assassinations, or anything like that. they are always one step ahead because they control the banks, the politicians, the military, the scientists, the media, the mic, human resources, know-how, and everything that really matters. it is not we against them. they are untouchable in another dimension, playing their game to push people against each other.

hohou

and don’t be fooled, they want to kill us all. it doesn’t matter if we are against them or supporting them. they don’t care.

they don’t want to kill us all. ai and robots have not reached the state yet where the masters can do without serfs. and their corporate welfare capitalist mode of operation till depends upon consumers and the capacity of the us state to create money from nothing to provide bailouts to the failed institutional speculators.

90% erased before 2030 at the latest.

where would you go if you were rich, evil, greedy and power hungry? us or europe, russian govt not so easily bought, poor countries not going to be attractive. 13% of us billionaires are immigrants, you can see how this might happen, that the wrong types could simply coalesce somewhere due to economic forces and a lack of defense against people with essentially criminal intent who are yet careful to commit no actual crimes.

junkies have nothing on the insane behavior of our installed yapping figurehead actors.

no doubt, they will propose $120 billion to ukraine, zero for border wall and not forgetting to top up israel. why is non-nato ukraine so important to us politicians?

biden and son – burisma mitt romney and son – ukraine energy company pelosi and son – ukraine energy company john kerry and step-son – burisma

and the list goes on. 10% to the big man and wonder what the rest get?
