Schumer announces push for $12B more in US aid for Ukraine’s war effort

For Democrats, Ukraine’s borders are sacrosanct. America’s borders not so much.

As part of a pending federal budget agreement, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) wants to allocate at least $12 billion more to Ukraine in its war against Russia, a presumably bipartisan development that will also make defense contractors happy.

As BPR reported earlier this month, one week after sending $2.9 billion to the eastern European country, the Biden administration announced that it planned to send another $600 million to the Zelenskyy government in Kyiv as the latter continues to mount a counter-offensive against the invading military forces of Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin.

The U.S. taxpayer has to date reportedly funded Ukraine since the hostilities started in the range of $15 billion for weapons, supplies, and other forms of assistance.

Most Republican lawmakers in Congress have gone along with these massive expenditures as a manifestation of what is often described as the Uni-Party.

Schumer, who has a long tradition of conducting press conferences on Sundays, informed the media, according to the New York Daily News, about has latest big-spending spree in the context of Ukraine gaining ground against its adversary:

“Ukraine has made significant advances against Russia in the war, the vicious war that Putin has waged against the Ukrainian people. I will be pushing for at least $12 billion in aid for Ukraine in the budget so they can continue to win the war effort. There’s been strong Ukrainian counteroffensives, but it’s only because of the weapons that we have gotten them. This is a critical time for momentum in Ukraine and Congress and the United States cannot let them down at this point in time.”

In a statement, Schumer further explained the rationale for cutting another huge check for Ukraine.

“According to all the reports, Russia’s recent retreat in northeast Ukraine was its largest military defeat since the withdrawal of Russian troops from areas near Kyiv more than five months ago, and I am here to affirm that support by the US and other allies has worked and that we must help keep this momentum going, This dramatic shift in momentum for Ukraine has been fueled by our bipartisan work in Congress, and I aim to continue that in the upcoming budget we will vote on next week,” he said.

In the fog of war, it’s often difficult to know with pinpoint accuracy what’s really going on as the fighting continues, and as the dueling sides step up their efforts to spin information to their advantage.

In the meantime, Democrats have given only lip service to addressing the humanitarian, law enforcement, national security, social services, and public health illegal immigration crisis at the U.S-Mexico border that continues to spiral out of control.

This is a catastrophe prompted by the open-borders, catch-and-release, deportation-averse Biden administration.

Separately, loud-talking Schumer was reportedly overheard in a D.C. restaurant predicting to liberal colleagues that his party would likely lose control of the U.S. House in the November midterm elections.

The career politician, 71, from Brooklyn, New York, who (of course) has two degrees from Harvard University, claimed, however, that Dems have a 60 percent chance of retaining their narrow majority in the upper chamber, according to the Punchbowl News website.

Schumer was also reportedly part of an unethical Democrat campaign spending effort to intervene in GOP primaries in this cycle to boost the chances of perceived less-electable MAGA candidates.
