House Passes Standalone Aid Package For Israel

What happens now? Will the Dems and Republicans in the Senate who love funding the never-ending war in Ukraine? Dumping oodles of taxpayer money to a war that’s going nowhere? And, if it passes the Senate, what does Biden do?

Mike Johnson, House Republicans pass Israel aid bill, setting up clash with Schumer, McConnell and Biden

The House of Representatives approved more than $14 billion in Israel aid Thursday afternoon setting up House Speaker Mike Johnson’s first major legislative clash with the Senate and White House.

The bill, titled the “Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act” cleared the lower chamber by a vote of 226-196 with most Republicans voting for the legislation and most Democrats voting against it. Two Republicans defected and voted against the bill while twelve Democrats voted for it.

Aid to Israel, a close U.S. ally, as it fights a war against Hamas militants, has garnered widespread bipartisan support, but Johnson’s proposal for standalone Israel funding has drawn considerable backlash from the Democratic-controlled Senate and the White House.

Why? They can debate the merits of a Ukraine package separately. Here’s the kicker

President Joe Biden requested Congress pass a broad national security funding bill that includes money for Ukraine and U.S. border security. Johnson’s bill only includes assistance for Israel — a clear opening salvo from the newly-crowned speaker as he seeks to extract conservative policy wins with a narrow GOP majority.

To pay for the Israel assistance, the bill includes a provision pulling back additional funding for the Internal Revenue Service that was originally allocated from the Inflation Reduction Act, a law championed by Biden and congressional Democrats.

The thing about politics is that sometimes people have to give a little to get a little. Democrats do not like that, because they believe they should get everything the want and give nothing, and the GOP has been so wimpy this century that it often ends up working that way. There’s little give and take, scratch my back I scratch yours.

Senate leadership however has shown no appetite for a standalone bill. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., derided Johnson’s bill as a “deeply flawed proposal” in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Instead, Schumer promised the Senate would craft a bipartisan foreign aid bill that appears to resemble Biden’s broad supplemental request. The Senate’s bill will “include funding for aid to Israel, Ukraine, humanitarian aid including for Gaza, and competition with the Chinese Government.”

Why? For one thing, why are we giving any aid to the Islamic extremists in Gaza? Let their allies do that. They hate the U.S. Let Iran and other Islamic extremist nations help them out with food and water and stuff. It’s very easy to do a standalone Ukraine bill. And, there’s no telling what the competition with the Chicoms actually means.

Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Fla., represents one of the most Jewish districts in the country. He was one of the twelve Democrats who voted for the bill because he felt Israel needed bipartisan support following the Oct. 7 attack, but said it was a “disgusting” political move to force Democrats to choose between funding Israel or the IRS.

That’s Politics 101, dude. Biden and your Senate Comrades are trying to include all sorts of unrelated stuff in big funding bill.

    The Senate won’t pass it, and the dummkopf from Delaware has promised to veto it even if it does pass. But Israel can and will win even without American aid, while Ukraine can’t and won’t win, even with American aid.

    Joe Biden’s Senate seat did not come up for election during the two years I lived in the First State, but I can assure you that I would have voted for his Republican opponent if it had.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The bottom line is the Jew-hating Republican’s stunt delays aid to Israel until the Dems take the House next year.

      If the Repubicuns had any balls they would tie Israel aid to slashes in Medicaid funding, ’cause debt, ya know.

      Cutting the IRS adds to the debt, but the Repubicuns have rarely been accused to being overly smart or thoughtful.

    As the scope and depth of the Democrats cheating in the elections comes more and more to light you will soon or later realize that it doesn’t matter who you vote for it only matters that Democrats count the vote. They lie they cheat they gas light they steal they bribe they corrupt everything they touch and then they throw you in jail when you March on the capital and protest. They are the quintessential communists. But with better technology.

    The election of 2024 will either rid the government of Democrats and enable Donald Trump to get rid of the communist infiltrators in all the different departments or it will cement Democrat communist has the sole party for whatever is left of the American Enterprise. I’m not sure that even at this point we could save this Republic it’s been so severely damaged by Democrats.

    As are economy hardens into a mass of overpriced crap the Democrats insist that the economy’s doing well they closed their eye and perpetuate the lie. We’re losing in Ukraine but everybody knew we would, the Israelis are winning their battles to the sadness of most Democrats even Elwood Dowd is struggling to make himself look like he’s pro Israel and he’s always been a Jew and Christian hater his entire adult life. The man just loves his muzzies. And of course he does they hate America, Christians, Jews, freedom, etcetera. They’re exactly like him so of course he loves them.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Have you finally found some credible evidence to support your claim that the Democrats stole the 2020 election? Great! You should reveal it. Otherwise you’re like the old man shouting “The End is Near!”

      L.G. can’t stand it that his Idol has fallen. He can’t stand that the economy has not collapsed. He can’t stand that his Idol’s Idol, Putin, is in trouble. He can’t stand that he can’t understand people.

      Regarding Israel, they are entitled to defend themselves against terrorists just as every nation.

      We understand how frustrating the world is for people like you. It’s frustrating when you don’t always get your way, so you lash out. You can’t find the words to support your positions. You rely on mindless conspiracies, The Big Steal, the Red Menace controlling the Deep State, Dems bringing in Central and South Americans to vote against Trump… You can’t understand how others don’t worship the same spirits as you.

      Have you tried to harm our children as you threatened?

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        You are so cute when you start saying you understand this and you understand that because you don’t understand Jack. You have been willfully blind from all the propaganda and all the lives spewing from the mouths of Democrat communist operatives since 2016.

        You are an ignorant fool and a stooge to the communist propaganda mill because you choose to be. All of us here have shown you over the past five years many different things to show you the truth and you have decided to ignore all of it. That in itself proves you’re a moron.

        When it comes to worshipping spirits you’re the one who thought that fauci was God you still think that that senile moron that you guys installed in the White House is God OK you won’t even go after a clown like hunter Biden who you know is a liar and a thief because you’re afraid that everything will collapse once one thing goes wrong and you’re right! Your time is coming. You have been exposed as the anti-Semitic Christian hating pro Muslim murderer terrorist that you are. And you can’t get out of it now period

        you’ve been battling the same garbage since the Russia Russia Russia hoax and you’re still going strong. Your heroes are all criminals or queers. That’s all you got oh and terrorists. From the river to the sea right dowd?

        There isn’t an evil cause on the face of this earth that you and your kind don’t support from abortion to Muslim terrorism you got all your bases covered with hate and that’s all you got.

        You are the most pathetic American we have ever run across at this stage of our Republic. I’ve never seen anyone who hates goodness as much as you.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          You are the most pathetic American I’ve ever run across.

          We’ve never seen anyone who hates decency as much as you.

          We fully understand that you’re an evil idiot.

          Have you revealed my credit card numbers as you threatened, “big” man?

          • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

            Is that what this is all about? First of all I didn’t threaten to reveal your credit card numbers I said I had the ability to do so if you’d listen and read correctly you wouldn’t be wrong 100% of the fucking time.

            So let’s say I’m an evil idiot so let’s compare how many people you pulled out of fires this year, how many people you administered life saving aid to an auto accidents or boating accidents. After all if I’m evil I certainly wouldn’t be doing anything like that.

            I thought that this was your usual jealousy and envy because my parents happen to be very wealthy I didn’t realize it was because I scared the bejeesers out of you by saying I could reveal your credit cards or your tag numbers. I wouldn’t do that I’m not gonna doxx you, that’s the kind of stuff that left does not guys like me.

            You guys specialize in bullying and terrorizing everyone you can. You know like if you’re not a friend of the Nazis in the Ukraine then you love Putin or other stupid things like if you refuse to take a shot you’re gonna lose your job or if you don’t use the kind of car you want you’re not allowed in the city you know stuff like that you’re nothing but bullies. But trust me I had given it serious consideration because I asked a buddy of mine that go background though yeah and he did a a very thorough one including criminal history real estate health history everything. But I decided that that information would do more to harm teach than you and I don’t wanna harm teach under any circumstances. Unlike you who seems to want to destroy teach even as you consume his finances by using his website and calling him names. Because that’s the kind of guy you are a bully a thief a liar a cheat but most of all a filthy moslem loving communist.

    Dems running out of excuses start shitting bricks.

    Paul noted “I think President Biden’s bluffing. I don’t think he’ll veto aid to Israel.”

    “You really think he’s going to stand up in front of the world and say, ‘Oh, we’re not sending aid to Israel just because it’s paid for’?” Paul added.

    Paul said that redirecting spending from elsewhere rather than adding to the deficit is “the conservative thing to do.”

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Many conservatives and libertarians claim Israel doesn’t need US taxpayer dollars to defeat Hamas.

    • Professor Hale says:

      While it is possible Biden is bluffing, it is likely the Dems (and democrat-leaning republicans) in the Senate, will ensure the bill dies in the Senate so no one calls Biden’s bluff. The democrats are using Israel’s troubles to pay for all the other stuff they want this year.
