President Joseph Biden continues to provide billions of dollars to Ukraine, as seen by the current money sent and his remarks made on the ground in Ukraine this past week. Biden has pledged personally in Ukraine and Poland that the United States is an unrestricted source of funding for Ukraine’s ongoing battle with Russia, which is approaching its one anniversary.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, is at the center of this debate. Republicans in Congress are demanding responsibility for the large amounts of monies sent.
Greene is requesting an examination of the United States’ financial assistance to the Ukraine. Conservative Brief says that she stated on Thursday that she intends to reintroduce legislation to audit the tens of billions of dollars allocated to Ukraine.
“It’s going to force Congress to give the American people an audit,” she said to Fox News host Tucker Carlson “And that is exactly what the American people need, an audit of Ukraine because we have no idea where all this money’s going.”
“I’m introducing this resolution, and I’m looking forward to seeing my Republican colleagues support it. There’s not bipartisan support among the American people for fighting a war in Ukraine that does nothing for Americans except force them to pay for it,” the representative said. “Ukraine is the new Iraq,” she said. “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. That’s why I’m introducing a resolution to find out exactly where our money is going.”
Greene has been criticized for her proposals to reduce the size of the federal government and return more authority to the states.
“We need a national divorce,” the firebrand Republican Georgia representative said in a tweet on Presidents’ Day this week. “We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s [sic] traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”
“Red states could choose in how they allow people to vote in their states… What I think would be something that some red states could propose is, well, ok, if Democrat voters choose to flee these blue states where they cannot tolerate the living conditions, they don’t want their children taught these horrible things, and they really changed their mind on types of policies that they support, well, once they move to a red state, guess what? Maybe you don’t get to vote for five years,” she said.

Talk show hose Laura Ingraham countered that such a law would not be legal by the Constitution. “The last thing we need is an American breakup of any sort. Remember, a motto of this show almost from the start over five years ago has been ‘no state left behind.’ Just because it often seems like Democrats have given up on America themselves, doesn’t mean ever that Republicans or conservatives should,” she said.

“I’m not for a national divorce, but I do think the federal government should at least have to spend the night on the couch for a while, like, you know, Bill Clinton had to after the Monica Lewinsky stuff. I’ve been with Marjorie Taylor Greene as we’ve traveled to places like California advocating for the God-fearing red-blooded Americans who live there, and too often we see a homogenized federal wokeness pushed on parts of the country who don’t want it,” Rep. Gaetz said. CONTINUE READING…
