The House passed a bill for $40 billion in weapons and other aid to Ukraine and the war effort on Tuesday. That was $7 billion on top of what Joe Biden had asked for and on top of the $13.6 billion that was passed last month. Joe Biden said they needed more because they had already spent everything.
While 57 Republicans voted against the new bill for $40 billion, most voted for it. It still has to go through the Senate.
Congress had already passed a bill that gave Joe Biden the right to provide virtually anything out of our own stockpiles to Ukraine. Meanwhile, officials are raising questions about how our own stockpiles are being depleted with this effort. There are also big questions about whether they are ensuring the weapons are getting to where they’re supposed to go. Obviously, they are getting some or the Ukrainians would have been toast already. But where is the spreadsheet of what money is being allocated, not just from us, but from all the other countries, and the accountability for where it is going? How do we know some of it isn’t going out the back door? The answers given by people like Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin were not reassuring — his answer was we basically have to trust the Ukrainians.
But instead of getting serious thought and questions from the Democrats about these important concerns, what we got was this from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): that we should just go along with all this because she quotes scripture and says we should feed the hungry.

I can’t believe she has the gall to say this. No, wait. It’s Nancy Pelosi. I can believe almost anything about her.
The passage from the Gospel is talking about individual charitable acts, not Congressional vultures justifying taking our money from us.
Americans can’t find formula to feed their babies, inflation is at a 40-year high, gas prices just hit a record average — the highest ever — and Nancy Pelosi doesn’t even care about the homeless who are sprawled across the streets of San Francisco. And she’s quoting scripture at us? Also, most of this has nothing at all to do with feeding the hungry so it’s just straight-up nonsense.
Pelosi is pulling out Christian scripture in a cynical attempt to appeal to Americans’ natural generosity. But meanwhile, she says nothing against leftists who are harassing Catholics and Catholic churches to push abortion and the killing of babies. So her scripture citing rings mighty hollow.
We see leftists commonly resort to this kind of tactic while at the same time attacking people for their Christianity.

This one sounds like it’s right over the target:
“For I was a defense contractor, and you gave me even more taxpayer money.”

But what about all the Americans struggling to eat right now with food prices up 30-40% on avg where I live, not to mention the 200+% increase in gas? Hard to think of giving $40 MORE bil to another country in this situation. But this does kinda make me think of Timothy 5:8 🤔

Timothy 5:8, the King James Version, says: “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” Where is the providing for your own house? Not to mention Pelosi’s Constitutional obligation — which is to the United States of America?
