Another $50 billion aid package for Ukraine is being discussed in Congress just before the Midterms that—if passed—would bring total U.S. support for Ukraine to over $115 billion.

One Republican senator told NBC News that the funding would ensure that “Ukraine survives the year,” and could be snuck in before the chance of Republicans winning seats in the House and Senate. 

“It’ll make the $12 billion look like pocket change,” the Republican said. 

There have been reports that top Republicans have begun to question the nearly unlimited support that Washington has given Kyiv. 

TRENDPOST: The Trends Journal has been completely opposed to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 24 February, and as we have detailed extensively since before the War began, we totally understand why Russia attacked. (See “Biden Says Putin Must Pay Price Over Invasion In Ukraine” 8 Mar 2022, “Lukashenko Blames The West For Pushing Russia Into A ‘Third World War’” 1 Mar 2022, “War In Ukraine Economic Overview” 1 Mar 2022, “China Blames Nato Expansion For Ukraine Conflict” 10 May 2022 and “Pope Francis Criticizes ‘barking Nato’ Prior To Ukraine War” 10 May 2022.)

We have also been opposed to Western countries enabling the war to drag on by providing Ukraine with intelligence, training, and advanced weaponry. We have noted that the war is no longer limited to a border conflict, but is WWIII, it just has not been officially declared. (See “UKRAINE’S ACCEPTANCE IN NATO WOULD ASSURE WWIII AND BE ‘CATASTROPHIC’ FOR MANKIND,” “ZELENSKY TRIES TO JOIN NATO AGAIN AND MAKE WWIII OFFICIAL” and “RUSSIAN NEWS OUTLET WARNS OF WWIII, WESTERN MEDIA CALLS IT ‘PROPAGANDA.”)  

We also noted last month that the U.S. approved $12 billion for new economic and military aid for Ukraine. That latest round of funding brought the total approved by Congress to $65 billion. Russia’s military budget for 2021 was $65.9 billion.

The NBC News report noted that Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the California Republican, would take over as Speaker of the House if his party reclaimed the House. He told reporters last week that his party is “not going to write a blank check to Ukraine.”

He told Punchbowl News: “I think people are going to be sitting in a recession and they’re not going to write a blank check to Ukraine.”

Every single Democrat voted in favor of an earlier $40 billion package for Ukraine, but only a handful of Republicans voted against the measure. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Thomas Massie have been the loudest voices to speak out against Ukraine funding. 

In May, Greene took to Twitter to lash out against sanctions, and said, “Sanctions aren’t stopping anything, but they are driving inflation and fuel prices.”

TRENDPOST: Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio, said in an interview that his constituents have been asking why Washington is more interested in Ukraine’s border than the U.S.’s southern border that has been dealing with record levels of migrants. (See “DHS: ARRESTS OF MIGRANTS ILLEGALLY CROSSING THE U.S. BORDER HIT RECORD IN MAY.”)

Rep. Michael McCaul, the top Republican on the House foreign affairs committee, said in an interview with Bloomberg that his party still intends to support Ukraine, but wants to make sure that NATO is “stepping up to the plate and bearing the burden of the cost.”

Gerald Celente has long noted that the infrastructure in the U.S. is abysmal, with decaying roads and bridges. What’s more, middle-income families in the U.S. are facing higher energy prices along with persistently high inflation. 
Last week, the cover of The Trends Journal featured the White House as an insane asylum because only those who have lost touch with reality could pursue such a path to war and poverty.
