Who Represents YOU? (April, 19th)

Sponsored by:

Two days ago, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson announced, "We are going to stand for freedom and make sure that Vladamir Putin doesn't march through Europe," as he was desperately trying to justify the $100 billion foreign aid debacle that appears on its way to passing this weekend.

Most of you listening are old enough to remember the "Weapons Of Mass Destruction" lie promulgated by the Bush 43 administration, which cost us $728 billion, the lives of 4492 patriots, destabilized the middle east, and led to Iraq- instead of being a counterweight to Iran's aggression- now being a vassal state to Iran.

Johnson's contention that Putin will march through Europe is just as much a lie, and potentially just as costly and damaging, as the WMD lie of 2003. 

Two weeks ago, the Heritage Foundation commissioned a poll of 1000 moderates in battleground states and found that three quarters were against providing aid to Ukraine without funding to secure the southern border. I guarantee that number is at least that high among republicans.   

According to CNN, the 3-part supplemental package Johnson is touting with his lies is, "strikingly similar to the Senate's bill in several key ways." No kidding....

Johnson also spoke of "projecting American freedom and security." Projecting American freedom and security is NOT funding unpopular foreign border wars while our border remains wide open to 8 million illegal aliens and counting, nor is it running a deficit of an additional $1 trillion every 100 days, and it is certainly not allowing banana republic style lawfare against your party's presumptive nominee- who unlike Johnson, just happens to have the overwhelming support of the GOP rank and file.

In the wake of the Omnibus bill, the FISA warrantless spying bill, and now this latest foreign war boondoggle, Johnson has stacked consecutive democrat wins just as easily as Nancy Pelosi ever did. Perhaps former democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer summed it up best this morning when he said, "It's the answer to making irrelevant the House Freedom Caucus." Never mind that the positions advocated by the Freedom Caucus poll consistently at or above 70% among GOP voters.

The good news is that 96 GOP representatives did the right thing this morning and voted against advancing the funding for War, Inc. The bad news is 151 voted with democrats and against the American people even though they know without a doubt endless war and the worldview of the CIA and neocons is a huge loser among voters. They. Don't. Care. 

War, Inc. must be funded, the people and our opinions, and our wallets, be damned. 

Now we're faced with two really awful choices- Recall Speaker Johnson and risk him being replaced with Speaker Jeffries, or continue to watch Johnson and his merry band of cuckservatives advance the democrat agenda and thumb their noses at the voters who elected them. Either way, the democrats win and we the people lose. 

Speaker Johnson has shown no spine, no leadership, and no principles, and has in no way made his case for this betrayal of republican voters to the American people. He is anything but America First. 

As Winston Churchill said, “To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.” 

That my friends, describes Speaker Johnson and his 151 RINOs.

Am I a Pollyanna for wanting better, for wanting a responsible government of, by, and for the people; for wanting what Margaret Thatcher described as, "A land where a man can know that if he works hard and earns money for his family, he will be allowed to hold on to most of what his efforts have brought him, rather than have it seized to build Ministerial empires?"  

November can't get here soon enough...
