We must always remember that half of the battle is weeding out the elements of our side that we do not need in our movement, either due to their sheer ineffectiveness or their outright willingness to cooperate with the enemy. Nothing personifies this part of the struggle more than the disastrous new foreign aid package that has just passed in the Senate.

The bill would spend over $95 billion of American taxpayers’ dollars on foreign aid to countries such as Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, as well as “humanitarian aid” to the so-called “Palestinians” in Gaza. Not only does this bill include direct funding to enemy forces in Gaza, but it has absolutely no provisions whatsoever towards securing our own border, which was originally promised but later scrapped.

The fact that this bill passed in a 70-29 margin, with 22 Republicans siding with the Democrats, proves that we still have a long way to go in our efforts to turn the GOP into a solidly America First party. We must do everything we can to hold these RINOs accountable. If Congressman Mike Gallagher’s shock retirement announcement over the weekend, following backlash over his vote not to impeach Alejandro Mayorkas, is any indication, we still have it in our power to deliver political retribution to those who do not stand with the American people.


House Speaker Mike Johnson rejects Senate Ukraine funding bill

By Thomas Stevenson

House Speaker Mike Johnson released a statement on Monday night slamming the stand-alone $95 billion foreign aid package to Ukraine, Israel, and other areas in the Indo-Pacific, saying the senate bill “failed to meet the moment.”

“House Republicans were crystal clear from the very beginning of discussions that any so-called national security supplemental legislation must recognize that national security begins at our own border. The House acted ten months ago to help enact transformative policy change by passing the Secure Our Border Act, and since then, including today, the Senate has failed to meet the moment,” the statement read.

“The Senate did the right thing last week by rejecting the Ukraine-Taiwan-Gaza-Israel-Immigration legislation due to its insufficient border provisions, and it should have gone back to the drawing board to amend the current bill to include real border security provisions that would actually help end the ongoing catastrophe,” Johnson wrote.

He added, “Instead, the Senate’s foreign aid bill is silent on the most pressing issue facing our country. The mandate of national security supplemental legislation was to secure America’s own border before sending additional foreign aid around the world. It is what the American people demand and deserve. Now, in the absence of having received any single border policy change from the Senate, the House will have to continue to work its own will on these important matters. America deserves better than the Senate’s status quo.”

The statement from Johnson comes amidst a Senate vote to motion for cloture that, if passed, would essentially bring debate over the bill to a close ahead of a vote to pass it.
