Now COVID Funds Are Being Diverted To Rush $40 Billion To Ukraine War

Joe Biden admitted to removing COVID relief from the package, stating on Monday that he was told it would delay action on the urgently needed Ukrainian aid, confirming that now COVID funds are being diverted to rush the $40 billion towards the Ukraine war.

Now COVID Funds Are Being Diverted To Rush $40 Billion To Ukraine War 1

After agreeing to reject a request for further COVID-19 related funding that they intended to merge, Congressional Democrats are pushing to rustle up $39.8 billion in additional Ukraine aid.

According to Reuters, the package, which exceeds President Joe Biden’s $33 billion proposal from April, could be voted on by the House as soon as Tuesday, with Senate Democrats signaling that they are ready to act quickly.

Biden on April 28 asked Congress for $33 billion to support Ukraine, including more than $20 billion in military assistance. That proposal was a dramatic escalation of U.S. funding for the war with Russia. read more

The new proposal includes an additional $3.4 billion for military aid and $3.4 billion in humanitarian aid, the sources said.

Although bipartisan backing for emergency help to Ukraine has prevailed for weeks, disagreements about domestic funding for pandemic relief and whether or not stricter immigration controls should be included have slowed the procedure.

“We cannot allow our shipments of assistance to stop while we await further congressional action,” President Biden said in a statement, urging Congress to speed up the financing so he could approve within the next few days.

The concern arises after Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin pleaded for the funding in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and senior House Republican Kevin McCarthy, claiming that they will run out in two weeks.

“We need your help,” Austin and Blinken wrote, claiming that there was “only” $100 million left over from a presidential weapons authorisation (which required no congressional approval).

The letter says, “We expect to exhaust that authority no later than May 19, 2022,”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he was pleased the Ukraine assistance was decoupled from COVID-19 aid. He had advocated for a “clean” Ukraine bill repeatedly in speeches in the Senate.

Senator Dick Durban, the second-ranking Democrat, was not pleased with the decision.

“It would have been so much better for us to protect the United States as well as worked to protect Ukraine,” Durban added, adding that dividing Ukraine funding from COVID-19 aid “doesn’t help. Putting those two together would have been a positive.”

Biden admitted to removing COVID relief from the package, stating on Monday that he was told it would delay action “on the urgently needed Ukrainian aid.”

  2. Chabad leader, Messiah Menachem Mendel Schneerson on his plans for destroying Ukraine and Russia
    Our special tactics to combat Slavs is a secret knowledge, because of its exclusivity limited to the god’s chosen people. The main weapon of struggle we will direct against the Slavs, except for renegades, “married” with the Jews by common interests. True, all these “married to us” will be withdrawn from our society once we use them for our own purposes.
    Slavs, and among them Russians – are the most unbending people in the world. Slavs are unbending as a result of their psychological and intellectual abilities, created by many generations of ancestors. It is impossible to alter these genes. Slav, Russian, can be destroyed, but never conquered. That is why this seed is subject to liquidation, and, at first, a sharp reduction in their numbers.

  3. “…if you really are serious when you talk of Jewish plots, may I not direct your attention to one worth talking about?… You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are disturbers. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom not merely of the latest great War but of nearly all your Wars, not only of the Russian but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it…” -Marcus Eli Ravage ​​ Jewish Writer and Rothschild Biographer, The Century Magazine, A Real Case Against the Jews, 1928 p.347

  5. History clearly reveals that the British government is the
    bond slave of the “invisible and inaudible” force centered in the
    City. The City calls the tune. The “visible and audible leaders”
    are mere puppets who dance to that tune on command. They
    have no power. They have no authority. In spite of all the
    outward show they are mere pawns in the game being played by
    the financial elite.
    HISTORY OF THE CITY
    From the time of William the Conqueror until the middle of
    the seventeenth century the British Monarchs ruled supreme—
    their word was law. They truly were Sovereign in every sense of
    the word.
    44 DESCENT INTO SLAVERY?
    As British strength and influence grew around the world
    toward the end of the 1600’s the wealth, strength and influence
    of the elite merchants in the City also grew—only at a faster
    pace. In 1694 the privately owned Bank of England (a central
    bank) was established to finance the profligate ways of William III.
    The bank was financed by a group of City merchants who used
    William Paterson as a ‘front.’ The names of the founders have
    never been made public.

    It was at that juncture that the Bank of England and the
    City began to dominate and control the affairs of Britain. Their
    influence and wealth grew in leaps and bounds in the century
    that followed. The Illustrated Universal History, 1878, records
    that “Great Britain emerged from her long contest with France
    with increased power and national glory. Her empire was greatly
    expanded in all parts of the world; her supremacy on the sea was
    undisputed; her wealth and commerce were increased . . . But
    with all this national prosperity, the lower classes of the English
    people were sunk in extreme wretchedness and poverty.” The
    elite controlled everything. The masses lived in poverty, having
    been bled dry during the struggle of the previous twenty years.
    It was at this juncture (1815) that the House of Rothschild
    seized control of the British economy, the Bank of England and
    the City—and , through their other branches, control of the
    other European nations.
    Prior to this period Britain had developed colonies and outposts in the far-flung reaches of the globe. Having been thrown
    out of the Western Hemisphere, Britain now concentrated on
    acquiring and developing additional possessions elsewhere.
    During its heyday in the nineteenth century approximately
    90% of all international trade was carried in British ships. Other
    shippers had to pay the Crown royalties or commissions for the
    ‘privilege’ of doing business on the high seas. During these years
    “Britannia Ruled the Waves” through the domination of the most
    modern and powerful navy known up to that time.
