Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California was heckled recently on the issue of help to Ukraine.
“Nancy, can you tell us why we have all the $150 billion going to Ukraine when we have homeless on our streets in your own city?”
“Nancy, can I get some stock trading tips on how to get semi-conductors in Taiwan. Nancy … is your son involved with Hunter Biden?” the man asked, referencing the controversial stock trading successes of Paul Pelosi.

In response to the man’s first query, the former speaker of the House stated, “For your freedom.”
The scene depicted a discussion occurring across the United States as political leaders struggle to help Ukraine while staying economically prudent and addressing domestic challenges.
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has provided full-throated support to pulling back the money coming to Ukraine, according to CNN.
“Well, I’ll tell you what I’d like to see is we can stop spending over a billion dollars every single month to the government of Ukraine and propping their government up,” Greene said.
“We’ve spent $113 billion in the war over there. And this hasn’t doing anything for our border and our people,” she said.
Ukraine is the new Iraq.
Our country is run by stupid warmongers that are so clueless and disconnected with what the American people want that they are literally leading us into World War 3.

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, a Republican, has stated that the United States does not need to subsidize the Ukrainian war since it confronts an existential danger from China.
“Some of the world’s wealthiest nations are our allies in Europe. But right now, we’re the only ones doing the heavy lifting. In fact, we’ve sent more weapons to Ukraine than all of Europe has, combined. And those choices are weakening us in the one place — the Pacific — where we require strength,” he said in a recent speech posted on his website.
Some think that spending money in Ukraine is crucial.
🤯 Mitch McConnell is one of the most influential guys in US govt. In my opinion, he’s generally wrong, but MAAN! he’s speaking 💯 truth on this interview. “defeating the Russians is the single most important thing going on in the 🌎 right now”.

The chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Texas Republican Rep. Michael McCaul, stated on ABC on Sunday that the United States can address internal challenges while standing up for freedom across the world.
“ I think the president should’ve gone to Palestine where we have this major chemical spill, but it doesn’t mean we disregard what’s happening in this struggle for the global balance of power that we’re facing right now,” he said.
“We haven’t seen anything like this since my father’s generation in World War II: largest invasion in Europe, the biggest threat to the Pacific since World War II. We can’t put our head in the sand and ignore this. Otherwise, the Russians will be on the Polish border and Chairman Xi will invade Taiwan.”
“I think we can do both. We’re a great nation,” he continued.
“What would Reagan do? I would ask my fellow colleagues, right? What would he do? He brought down the Soviet Union. I think he would stand for freedom and democracy.”
