What you don’t know about $40B Ukraine aid bill: There’s a fetish in DC for citizens of foreign countries

The $40 billion aid package destined for war-torn Ukraine that is the latest giveaway to a foreign country at a time when Americans are suffering at home is drawing criticism over the political establishment’s indifference to citizens of their own country, with an ex-adviser to former President Donald J. Trump unloading on the denizens of the swamp.

Stephen Miller didn’t hold back during a brief appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” blasting what he described as a “fetish” of Washington D.C. politicians who care more about the problems of foreigners than their actual constituents.

But first Carlson delivered a stinging verbal caning to Republicans who support the package in his opening monologue, naming names of those who once again, assumed the position out of fear of as he described it, being criticized by The New York Times.

Among those singled out by Carlson were former United States Ambassador to the United Nations and potential 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley and Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who was, once again, dog-walked by Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“You got to hope that there’s some sincere billionaire out there who is going to fund a primary challenge against every single one of those Republican senators standing by Mitch McConnell,” Carlson said, quoting the Kentucky Republican, “I think we all agree that the most important thing going on in the world right now is the war in Ukraine.”

“No, the most important thing going on in the world right now is the state of your country, the one you’re supposed to run, the people you’re supposed to represent, whose lives you’re supposed to care about, the ones who can’t buy food or gas, the people od’ing on fentanyl, a hundred and seven thousand, in a year, dead, young people, Americans,” Carlson said.

“But that’s nothing compared to Ukraine, we all agree Ukraine is the most important thing,” he added. “Really, if you agree with that, you should not be sitting in the United States Senate as a Republican.”

Carlson then brought on Miller saying that he couldn’t think of a “clearer middle finger to Republican voters than what happened last night,” referring to the House passage of the Ukrainian aid bill which passed overwhelmingly 368-57 and will soon be rubber-stamped by the Senate on its way to President Joe Biden’s desk.

Miller responded, “Well, sadly, what you’re seeing and what I’ve learned firsthand for many years in Washington is that the tears of American families do not move the hearts of Washington politicians in all too many cases, you talked about some of this in your monologue tonight.”

“A hundred and seven thousand young Americans mostly killed by drugs pouring across our wide-open border,” he said. “Those tombstones littered across our landscape, there’s no bill for them.”

“We have gangs pouring across our border, terrorizing our schools like MS-13,” he continued. “Do you know that this year we only spent one billion dollars, one billion, on the salaries of ICE deportation officers, one billion to get rid of the gangs, the drug dealers, and the criminals murdering our children?”

“One billion! But forty in one bill for Ukraine,” Miller added.

“There are moms who are gonna go to sleep tonight who will not be able to get formula for their children,” he said, “including moms whose kids have severe allergies and the one formula they need is not on that store shelf, and they face the excruciating choice of giving their kid a formula they know they’ll have an allergic reaction to, that’s happening right now.”

“No bill for them, the wheels of justice do not turn for them because there is a fetish in Washington for the citizens of foreign countries, the affairs of foreign countries, the adventures of foreign countries, that’s what moves the heart of Washington, not the tears of our own people,” Miller said.
