Good for them. That’s one for the forces of light. Spend it wisely Ukraine!

Thank you, Mr. Speaker, for doing the right thing.

Donald Trump, who carries huge influence in the party, on April 12 voiced support for Johnson and in a Thursday social media post said Ukraine's survival is important for the U.S.

MAGA folks, your master has spoken. Time to jump on the bandwagon.

Bob Good, chair of the hardline House Freedom Caucus, told reporters on Friday that the bills . . . “don't reflect the American people."

Welp, Bobby, they obviously do because they passed overwhelmingly.

Genocide sponsored by US Tax payer money, should thanks for people who filled their taxes last week.

@PM: MAGA folks, your master has spoken. Time to jump on the bandwagon.

The cult's master has spoken, but what's the over/under on how long until he flip flops, perhaps says he never said anything? He's got his politician hat on so expect him to be all over the board on this, too. He's further splintering the Republican Party along with the country.

@sakurasuki

Perhaps it is worth noting how many major news websites, such as the BBC, are headlining this story as "US House passes crucial Ukrainian aid deal worth $61bn", and buried deep in the article almost at the end it mentions the $26 billion for Israel.

So at least JapanToday has the integrity to call it as it is from the get-go.

This Mike Johnson is a perfect example of the total moral hypocrisy of the current US political elite: a far-right Christian Fundamentalist pro-lifer who uses the Bible to justify the genocide of Palestinian children.

The US is ruled by corrupt monsters, depraved sociopaths funded by AIPAC.

For once Mike Johnson led the Republicans to an actual-world solution, instead of pretending that the MAGA faction represents the people. He needed votes, found them, and got a bipartisan vote passed. That's how democracy should work.

The Russians are going to be really angry about this one. It basically means that they will lose the war, and likely another collapse afterwards like when the USSR crashed due to the incompetent leadership after Chernobyl.

Russian constitution requires it to protect any Russian. They occupy parts of Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova already and there are ethnic Russians in all the Baltics (NATO), Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Uzbekistan…. You are naive if you think Ukraine is going to win this conflict.

No, but this goes through ok and it still won’t help in the end, but yeah, let’s waste more taxpayer money just $95 billion.

Russia withdrew in disgrace from Afghanistan. You never know what can happen under sustained pressure.

The Baltics are NATO allies. Are you saying we need to show our strength by handing them over? And how are you an expert in the Russian constitution? Reading up on some fan fiction?

In this corner we have MAGA-Mike, otherwise know an LINO (Leader in Name Only)...holy protector of evangelicals everywhere...

Wrong, but with a gun to his head and the math going against, he doesn’t have a lot of options

Who is putting the gun to his head?

And in the other corner is Moscow-Marjorie, otherwise known as the "Kremlin Crusher", Russia's favorite puppet...

Putin could care less and probably doesn’t know who this woman is

He is smart enough to keep track of all of his useful idiots.

Tune in tonight to see who will prevail in the MAGA-throw-down of the century...

?

So who are our MAGA-friends here cheering for?

America.

Could have fooled me when you come here to tell us that our treaty allies deserve to be more vulnerable.

"Mike Johnson is a lame duck ... he's done," far-right Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene told reporters afterward.

Be careful when you go outside Mike, rather than a knife in the back like your predecessor got, MTG is aiming her space-based lasers at you...

Representative Bob Good, chair of the hardline House Freedom Caucus, told reporters on Friday that the bills represent a "slide down into the abyss of greater fiscal crisis and America-last policies that reflect Biden and (Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck) Schumer and (House Democratic leader Hakeem) Jeffries, and don't reflect the American people."

Hey Bob, you forgot to include YOUR Repub Speaker and 101 of YOUR Repub House team members...

Isn't it great they are joining Biden, Nancy, Schiff, Schumer, and Jeffries to stick it you you and your fellow Freedom Caucus crazies?

Not really, they’re on the same page, it just comes down in the end to math, do they have the numbers and they don’t. So the Dems care more about Ukraine, the globalist party that they are over US so that takes up priority for them. America, blue states and their exploding homeless crisis is over little concern to them.

And other countries have a duty to protect their own borders from foreign invaders.

But I seem to remember at the start of the war you were less of an apologist for Russian imperialism, but over time have moved to a position shared with the very openly Kremlin -supporting posters on JT.

Absolutely.

How are the Democrats putting a gun to his head. Please be specific.

They are the ones that want, push and demand that this aid go through, do they not?

Does that mean the McCarthy and Pelosi also had guns to their heads?

McCarthy was in the same position, and I don’t care about Pelosi because the Dems will never say NO to any spending especially overseas or whatever toxic polices they want to spend money on.

ROFL - I guess you missed MTG latest post;

Mike Johnson betrayed America once again.

After doing nothing to secure America’s Southern border, reauthorizing FISA to spy on the American people without a warrant, fully funding Joe Biden’s DOJ that has indicted President Trump 91 times, and giving Biden’s political gestapo a brand new FBI building bigger than the Pentagon, Speaker Johnson just sent $61 billion to fund the proxy war against Russia in Ukraine.

House Republicans and the American people would be stronger without his disloyalty and betrayal of his principles.

They absolutely are on the same page, the difference is she is not how speaker, Johnson is with the hand that he dealt with, he pretty much has no choice, now if Marjorie thinks he’s disloyal, on paper it would seem so in spirit he’s actually 100% not, so I did both sides. Not blaming either of them, it is what it is for now.

Marjorie doesn't "think" he's disloyal - read her tweet - she said it plain and clear - he betrayed the MAGA-cause and sided with the enemy. How do you conspire and collude with Dems and still be on the "same page"?

You need to read he post again; "After doing nothing to secure America’s Southern border, reauthorizing FISA to spy on the American people without a warrant, fully funding Joe Biden’s DOJ that has indicted President Trump 91 times, and giving Biden’s political gestapo a brand new FBI building bigger than the Pentagon, Speaker Johnson just sent $61 billion to fund the proxy war against Russia in Ukraine."

Americans better hope Republicans aren't in charge if America is invaded. The Republicans would surrender in a minute, especially if it was a strong enough dictator doing the invasion.

most Americans didn’t want it passed

Correction: Most MAGA don't want it passed.

Remember, most of America didn't want MAGA. And they do want to support Ukraine.

lol last year you claimed Biden increased the debt BY $34 trillion. Remember that little gem? 

Yup.

I’d hold off on the predictions for a while.

$34,583,094,965,544.54 

As of now nothing to predict. Tick, tick…

Remember when you claimed that getting the House would end aid to Ukraine?

Yup, and Russia is still there

How’d that pan out? 

For me or the Ukrainians?

It’s just not going your way is it?

Neither for Zelenskyy.

Putin government, with the vast energy resources, Nord stream pipelines an example, chosen a path of peace, become a true European statemen. Russia a leader.

However Putin couldn't see past the old decrepit soviet despot ideology.

His invasion of Ukraine, his war crimes, a needless unnecessary war, has also revealed Europe/EU/UK refusal to protect it peoples.

Yup.

So do you believe the debt is now $64 trillion or are you finally going to admit you were wrong?

Then there wouldn’t be any opposition.

You can spend all the money you want when you have a terminally ill patient and in the end, that patient will still die, you’re just prolonging the inevitable.

So just give up whenever something is difficult? That is the principle you wish US foreign policy to be based on? How well do you think America is going to survive in a world dominated by China, Russia, Iran, North Korea and all the countries in the world that absolutely despise America? That is what you are rooting for.

And just because Ukraine is having a hard time due to ammunition shortages, which are about to be remedied, doesn’t make it “terminally ill”. Cutting off life support to a patient who would otherwise survive, which is what you Putin apologists have been cheerleading for, so you could use that excuse to do nothing is just pathetic and delusional.

Wrong?

Yes. You claimed Biden added $34 trillion to the debt. Then dug your heels in as you always do when you are wrong. Then pretended you didn’t.

Don’t remember?

Grab your popcorn for the Republican Civil War. They are not serious people and they are not fit to govern anything.

Let's leave "war crimes" to decide to courts.

About "refusal to protect its own people. Absolutely! For me it was an unexpected discovery. I am very pleased to see such a reasonable thought here. Here today in the midst of this sabbath.

Unfortunately, America will not stop. It's a matter of prestige. The prestige almost completely lost.

The first is revenge for Crimea. The lost Crimea is an unforgettable personal insult to someone in the governing American (world) elite. And the second thing...Many Ukrainian riches have already been bought out by global corporations and individual money bags. This is the property on the Ukrainian territory that America is fighting for...Russia doesn't need to expand its territory

Yes. You claimed Biden added $34 trillion

True.

Don’t remember?

Yes

Grab your popcorn for the Republican Civil War. They are not serious people and they are not fit to govern anything.

Come again?
