“He and I are 100% united on these big agenda items,” Johnson said

45 supports US aid to Ukraine.

Way too late, but I guess better late than never. Trying to make money off of an ally in trouble shows you about where MAGAs stand even on their best day.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Get the aid to Israel, because that war is winnable and Israel is our number 1 ally in the region.

Limit aid to Ukraine and increase pressure on that country to negotiate with Russia. Right now, the best Ukraine can do is stay on the defensive. Time for that war to end.

Let’s see what large Marge does. Did she get the memo?

Link the aid because Ukraine is actually a useful ally. Perhaps it is time for Israel to surrender.

“He and I are 100% united on these big agenda items,” Johnson said

45 supports US aid to Ukraine.

And Johnson pushed through the FISA renewal, against Trump's wishes just before his trip to the Don in Mar-a-Lago.

My thinking is that since the Dems will support Mike in a leadership challenge from the Twitter faction (MTG) if he sets a vote on Ukraine, he went down to Trump to dictate how it's going to work. Trump is ostensbly opposed to aid to Ukraine, but he doesn't have the support from Congress on that issue. So now he has changed his tune.

If that is true, it means a power shift away from Trump and the Twitter faction and towards the Democrats in Congress.

Never too late. I see and understand why Trump is doing this, but am I for it, absolutely not. But what’s another wasted billions, just print more of it, won’t help Ukraine, they still will lose in the end and Putin laughs and rightfully so.

No, in the real world you can't show up to the battlefield with equipment after the war is lost.

I see and understand why Trump is doing this, but am I for it, absolutely not.

You said you supported military aid for Ukraine. Was that just to not look like you had completely grabbed your ankles at the time?

But what’s another wasted billions, just print more of it, won’t help Ukraine, they still will lose in the end and Putin laughs and rightfully so.

Do you perhaps believe Putin pockets the money sent to Ukraine? Artillery shells kill Russian invaders which saves American lives in the future tremendously. This is reality.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

No, in the real world you can't show up to the battlefield with equipment after the war is lost.

Well, it is pretty much lost.

You said you supported military aid for Ukraine.

Yes

Was that just to not look like you had completely grabbed your ankles at the time?

What did you say earlier about not acting like a child?

Do you perhaps believe Putin pockets the money sent to Ukraine?

I didn’t say Putin did.

Artillery shells kill Russian invaders which saves American lives in the future tremendously. This is reality.

Again, blowing through all that nonsensical crap, Ukraine is not going to win this conflict.

Trump...

You said you supported military aid for Ukraine.

Yes

Supports Ukraine aid today...yesterday he didn't....tomorrow he won't...

Was that just to not look like you had completely grabbed your ankles at the time?

What did you say earlier about not acting like a child?

Indeed...

Do you perhaps believe Putin pockets the money sent to Ukraine?

I didn’t say Putin did.

Still loves the guy...

Trump...

Ukraine, the country.

Supports Ukraine aid today...yesterday he didn't....tomorrow he won't...

Military, not humanitarian, get it right.

Indeed...

And the left still didn’t take their own advice.

Still loves the guy...

No, but he’s outsmarting the guy in the White House now.

Ukraine losing has everything to do with Senior Biden’s lack of geopolitical understanding.

Trump...

Ukraine, the country.

Trump, the idiot...

Wrong...

And the far-right fail again...

Well, it is pretty much lost.

There is such a thing as defeat in victory and victory in defeat. Could also be a draw more or less.

You said you supported military aid for Ukraine.

Yes

So then you should have supported the Senate deal which was 90% military hardware.

Was that just to not look like you had completely grabbed your ankles at the time?

What did you say earlier about not acting like a child?

I'm not the dragging this country down in defeat because I don't understand subtleties.

Do you perhaps believe Putin pockets the money sent to Ukraine?

I didn’t say Putin did.

But you think he benefits from US aid to Ukraine somehow, otherwise he wouldn't be "smiling".

Artillery shells kill Russian invaders which saves American lives in the future tremendously. This is reality.

Nope, leaving your enemy bruised and broken is not nonsense, it is victory for the US. You would seek to deny that.

You see, Trump's Fat Gut maybe powerful to you, but it has no power for people who study these things for a living. What does have power is draining Putin's ability to fight.

If Johnson does as he says, then the Dems should give him the support he needs to pass it.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

“He and I are 100% united on these big agenda items,” Johnson said. 

Really Mike? As a evangelical Christian who is proud of his faith, believes unequivocally that life begins at conception, and has said "just look in the bible for any decisions I make"...

You're "100%" behind Trump's abortion stance allowing children to be murdered until the 15th week?

Welcome to MAGA-waffle-world...

There is such a thing as defeat in victory and victory in defeat. Could also be a draw more or less.

Hmmm…

So then you should have supported the Senate deal which was 90% military hardware.

No, because it would have done nothing to secure our U.S. border. Look, I’m not going to listen to what the left wants me to believe, that’s not going to happen, I told you, I only will listen to the people that live along and work along the border. I believe them, not what these insane Democrats are pushing from thousands of miles away from an air-conditioned office in DC.

I'm not the dragging this country down in defeat

This President is though.

But you think he benefits from US aid to Ukraine somehow, otherwise he wouldn't be "smiling".

Again, Zelenskyy is fighting a losing war. Should have taken the deal when he had the chance.

Nope, leaving your enemy bruised and broken is not nonsense,

I personally don’t care. I only care about our people and our country and our open southern border.

You see, Trump's Fat Gut maybe powerful to you, but it has no power for people who study these things for a living.

So then why is the pentagon frustrated that the old guy in the WH is not listening to them.

How oh how will all the Dems staffers and fans on here cope after November when Trump is re elected. Should order that popcorn soon before it runs out;)

Why wait? Get your popcorn today.

The first time a U.S. president has been in the courtroom as defendant in a criminal trial.

Basically you aren't going to listen to anyone except people you agree with. Not a way to run a country or get what you want.

Nope, your Manchurian Candidate is.

But you think he benefits from US aid to Ukraine somehow, otherwise he wouldn't be "smiling".

You are espousing Russian lies again. If Zelenskyy had taken this fictional deal in April of 2022, Kharkiv would be in Russian hands and the line would be way further west of where it is now. Doesn't sound too smart to me. Also the deal was complete fiction but I suspect you know this. The Russian doesn't relinquish land unless he is removed from it by force.

Nope, leaving your enemy bruised and broken is not nonsense,

I personally don’t care. I only care about our people and our country and our open southern border.

Sounds like you aren't able to hold two ideas in your head at the same time.

You see, Trump's Fat Gut maybe powerful to you, but it has no power for people who study these things for a living.

Because the Pentagon leadership IS smart enough to keep two ideas in theirs heads: they can respect Biden as more patriotic than the MAGA while also being worried about other issues.
