Skip to comments.The Republican Plot Against Donald Trump
Posted on 02/12/2024 7:04:24 AM PST by bitt
This weekend, Senate Democrats (joined by a few Republicans, including most Republican leadership) forced through a “security supplemental” that spends close to $100 billion, most of it on Ukraine. It was the culmination of months of secretive negotiations on border security. Those negotiations produced a border security product unacceptable to most Republicans, so then Republicans voted it down, and then an hour later we were debating a security supplemental with border security stripped out.
The quick pivot, refusal to negotiate another round on border security, and immediate shift to blame Trump confirmed one thing: Republican leadership wasn’t serious about border security. They cared most about Ukraine funding and saw the border negotiations as a distraction. This extinguished any hope of real border security before the negotiation began.
The story our leadership tells is that the “politics of border security” had changed because of Donald Trump. James Lankford dutifully negotiated a bipartisan border product. Conservative Republicans encouraged this negotiation. When the product took shape, Donald Trump demanded conservatives walk. Trump argued that Joe Biden didn’t need a border security package—which was true—so Republicans should ask simply that Joe Biden do his job. This intervention allegedly killed a great piece of border policy.

This new Ukraine bill tries to make it ILLEGAL for Trump to do what he is promising on the campaign trail.
It is a plot against the President Trump, plain and simple.
“...great piece of border policy...”
Seriously, JD? That was great policy?
The House should insist on a provision setting aside all pending and completed legal actions against him.
2) The so-called stand-alone Ukraine funding deal contains an impeachment trap for Trump should he win re-election by preventing him from not spending all of the money allocated in the bill, even if Trump negotiates a cease-fire between Ukraine and Russia. J.D. Vance is circulating this letter:
It raises an interesting issue: To what extent can the legislative branch effectively “railroad” an incoming president (or any future president) despite the platform upon which the new president got elected?
All of this is cause primarily because the Republican Party hates most of its voters. The Democrats (despite their complaints) don’t suffer from this phenomena to the same degree.
Would not such a “kill switch” be unconstitutional?
Could someone tell me why not just Romney, Murkowski and Collins voting for this but why are Kennedy of Louisiana, Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma and Young of Indiana, among other supposed “conservatives” approving this garbage??
Ukraine can sell war bonds.
Ukraine can sell territory to Poland and Hungary.
Ukraine can sell territory to billionaires for new independent countries.
Israel can sell war bonds and building lots.
The Palestinian Authority can sell Gaza offshore extraction rights.
Congress can wise up.
Deep State rule 1: heads I win, tails you lose.
Young people are already saddled with destructive levels of debt and with a foreign-born cadre of criminal invaders who view them a easy marks.
Rank-and-file Democrats will suffer most and it will be just desserts for their covetous greed.
The actual perps (you know their names) will avoid the repercussions of their treachery.
I pray we can last another 15-20 years but I doubt it.
Please pass the radioactive roots and berries.
Your comment is unfair and out of context. JD used the word “allegedly” before “great piece of border policy.” He was simply describing the establishment narrative, not agreeing with it.
This intervention allegedly killed a great piece of border policy.
This pretty much tells you everything you need to know about who JD Vance really is.....
