The Senate voted on Monday evening to advance a bill to send $40 billion more aid for Ukraine in its war against Russia, setting up a final vote possibly on Wednesday. The tally was 81 to 11 on the first of a potential three procedural votes paving the way for final Senate passage of the funding, requested by President Joe Biden's administration to keep aid flowing and boost the government in Kyiv nearly three months after the start of the Russian invasion.All 11 anti votes were Republicans showing how an isolationist Donald Trump-allied wing of the party has split off from the mainstream.

If you don’t continue to vote to bankrupt the US and push for a nuclear war for us all (not the ones who will be picked up and taken to safety by the military, of course) without so much as an explanation of why we need weapons in Ukraine, then you’re an isolationist racist transphobe putin-o-phile! Why can’t bidet make a speech and explain why all this is worth it ? Other than “putin’s a war criminal” of course; we already heard that line of “reasoning.”

It isn't isolationism. It is smart to not get involved in some idiotic European land war between a failed nuclear weapon powered zombie empire and their former colony which now pretends to be a real country while really being little more than a pass-through for foreign corruption. 10% for The Big Guy.

Mitch is heavily invested in the Global Military Industrial Complex and has a lot of money and profit potential riding on this. If you think he is going to let this be defeated you can think again. Hunter and Joe and the Kazarian Mafia as well as the Rothchilds and Rockerfellers and the Catholic Mafia have a lot at stake as well. This will pass with no problem.

GREAT point, #13! We could REALLY build a secure a border wall with about 1/4th of the $40 billion dollars rather than to keep paying $120 billion dollars PER YEAR for illegals which goes up higher and higher each year as more invade the country because for some reason the laws already on the books are completely IGNORED with an "in your face" impunity. $40 billion dollars is nothing to these people, but printing more money will only ruin OUR future as a nation.What kind of mess will our children have to live in and what kind of future will they have because we allow this to go on??

#s13 & 14, by not securing the border, FJB is enriching the drug cartels and killing US citizens. The cartels are the ones getting rich from ferrying people and Chinese produced fentanyl and other drugs across our southern border. Perhaps Mr. 10% or his mafia group is in on the action?

Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) secured the Republican nomination with a blowout victory in the North Carolina U.S. Senate primary, the Associated Press has projected. The Trump-endorsed congressman beat his establishment-backed competitor, former Gov.

President Joe Biden has finally decided to stop working with Republicans and pounce on the party of former President Donald Trump instead. In a Politico piece Tuesday, sources told the site that there wasn't a single moment that sparked the change of course, but months of frustration, including that the GOP wouldn't work with the White House to combat inflation. 'I never expected the ultra-MAGA Republicans who seem to control the Republican Party now to have been able to control the Republican Party,' Biden said publicly last week. 'I never anticipated that happening.'

Polling stations for North Carolina's primary elections have closed as of 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening, with all eyes on scandal-plagued Rep. Madison Cawthorn's first re-election bid. Cawthorn was trailing his main rival, state Senator Chuck Edwards, by just over 10 points with 40 percent of ballots counted nearly an hour after voting ended. The 26-year-old Republican's race has proven to be a test of Donald Trump's endorsement strength, as election watchers wait to see whether the ex-president's support could push him over the line despite a litany of recent public relations crises.

The first trial to emerge from Special Counsel John Durham's probe finally got underway Tuesday – as prosecutors accused former Hillary Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann of trying to engineer an 'October surprise' when he sought out a top FBI official to discuss an allegation about Trump and Russia. The allegation didn't pan out, but the meeting itself constituted an effort to 'use and manipulate' federal law enforcement for political ends, prosecutors argued. Sussmann's defense team argued he was forthright when he acted on his own to bring information to authorities, and said the intervention did not benefit the Clinton camp in any way.

Fairfax County’s school board has long prided itself on leading the way for the nation in cutting-edge education policy and curriculum. As the tenth-largest district in the nation, it holds disproportionate sway over other school boards. In 2015, the Fairfax school board blindsided parents with changes to its non-discrimination policy, followed by a sweeping expansion of the sex-ed curriculum and new rules governing student offenses and penalties.
