According to ZeroHedge’s Tyler Durden, the US government has approved more than $60 billion in aid to Ukraine, on addition to the $18.2 billion in security assistance that has been delivered to it since the Biden regime took office in January 2021.
Back in May, Congress passed a $40 billion military and humanitarian aid package that was opposed by 57 Republicans in the US House.
Furthermore, on Oct. 14, a fresh $725 million security aid package was proposed, which includes ammo for HIMARS rockets, antitank weaponry, Humvees, and precision-guided artillery rounds, according to a Pentagon report.
McCarthy told Punchbowl News, “There are things the Biden administration isn’t doing domestically. Not doing the border, and people start to think about it. Ukraine is vital, but it cannot be the only thing they do, nor can it be a blank check.”
America First populists like JD Vance, who is campaigning for Ohio’s US Senate seat, and Blake Masters, who is attempting to oust incumbent Arizona Senator Mark Kelly, are vehemently opposed to the US continuing its proxy war against Russia.
“I do think we have to reach a point, and this is where we differ, where we have to stop the money flow to Ukraine,” Vance asserted. The Senate candidate emphasized the need of “the Ukrainians succeeding,” but not via increased cash from US taxpayers.
“We cannot support a long-term military confrontation that, in my opinion, would eventually have diminishing results for our own country,” Vance told ABC. “I think we’ve provided enough money to Ukraine, I honestly do,” he added. “The Europeans must do more. And, to be honest, if the Ukrainians and, more crucially, the Europeans realized that America was not going to foot the price, they may genuinely step up.”
Masters stressed in May that the money allocated to Ukraine might be better utilized to safeguard the southern border.
“Under Biden, America always comes last,” he said in a video. “Let us be quite clear about what this entails. There will be no cease-fire. It implies another foreign conflict in which we bear the entire cost. Thousands more people will perish. There is no end in sight, no resolve. Of course, the risk is that a proxy conflict would evolve into a full-fledged nuclear confrontation between nuclear powers.”
With the strengthening America First movement inside the Republican Party, it appears that the party is returning to the realist/non-interventionist mentality that defined its most prominent figures from the early twentieth century until the Vietnam War.
For far too long, the GOP has been completely dominated by neoconservatives. However, with Donald Trump’s election in 2016, a new insurgent force threatens to upend the interventionist status quo. America First vs. Neoconsertive fights will be some of the most critical types of sectional infighting to observe in the coming decades.
