    Germany announced it would be freezing funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), a body specifically dedicated to Palestinian refugees, amid reports it has distributed antisemitic material, incited violence, and had alumni who participated in the October 7 atrocities in Israel. Germany has contributed nearly a billion dollars to UNRWA in the last five years, making it the single largest donor to the agency, which has come under renewed scrutiny since the Israel-Hamas war began for its record of failing to prevent foreign aid from falling into the terror group’s hands. “UNRWA is not making a contribution...

    The Swiss government will be terminating its support for three Palestinian-affiliated NGOs - the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), Palestinian NGO Network (PNGO), and Al-Shabaka, according to a statement released by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs last week. The FDFA’s decision comes on the heels of its suspension of the delivery of funds to eleven Palestinian NGOs in October following Hamas's brutal attacks of October 7 that left 1,200 people dead. That move was made pending “an in-depth analysis of the compliance of these organizations’ communications with the FDFA’s Code of Conduct and anti-discrimination clause, to which...

    Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the United States “has an obligation” to continue Ukraine war funding “without a negotiation on the U.S. border.” Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: Well, when Congress comes back from this break, they have a lot of work to do. I understand you are part of a small group who has worked during the break on this very tough issue regarding the US border, and President Biden’s requests for about $14 billion to help with it. Where do talks stand now?
  • Speaker Johnson eyes funding Ukraine aid with seized Russian assets, calls it ‘pure poetry’

    Speaker Mike Johnson said that he would like to use billions in seized Russian assets to pay for President Biden’s Ukraine aid request. Mr. Johnson’s pitch comes as the top House Republican already diverted from Mr. Biden’s $106 billion request by splitting Israel aid from the larger package that included aid spending for the Jewish state, Ukraine, Taiwan and spending on the U.S.-Mexico border to bolster the president’s catch and release policies. House Republicans have increasingly shifted their stance on providing more aid to Ukraine, arguing that no more taxpayer dollars should flow to the war-beleaguered country until the Biden...

    The House is under new management but is operating under business as usual as it prepares to pass a continuing resolution (CR) that once again extends spending levels and policies pushed through by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in last December’s lame duck session. Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) is moving a laddered CR that extends current spending levels for Agriculture, Energy and Water, Military Construction-VA and Transportation-HUD spending bills through January 19 with the remaining eight bills extended through February 2.

    House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said on Sunday that Republicans have no choice but to back the short-term funding proposal. In an interview on CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” McCaul stressed the importance of passing aid for our foreign allies, which will not be feasible if the government shuts down. “We’re gonna have to. I mean, there’s no choice here,” McCaul said when asked whether Republicans can pass the continuing resolution (CR) proposal that Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) unveiled Saturday.

    While Congress is still debating whether or not to send additional funding to Ukraine, with a congressional funding deadline looming on November 17th, the Biden Administration has sent Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in the city of Kyiv. In a bulletin posted to the Department of Transportation’s website, the stated goal of the meeting is for Buttigieg and Zelensky to discuss Ukraine’s economic recovery. That bulletin reads… “The discussions will focus on advancing Ukraine’s economic recovery and efforts to return Ukraine to economic self-sufficiency, including via supporting investments in transportation infrastructure and reforms that...

    A number of Republicans have signaled their disagreement with Mike Johnson's plan to decouple Israel and Ukraine military aid amidst their respective wars with Hamas and Russia. Under the new speaker, the House of Representatives seeks to provide $14.3 billion in aid to Israel. President Joe Biden had initially requested the House pass a $10 billion package that would have included aid for Israel, Ukraine and border security. Johnson has in the past voted against aid for Ukraine and has said he wanted aid to Israel and Ukraine to be handled separately with more accountability for money sent to the...

    "I do use this in a pejorative term, and it's adulting." Maj. Gen. James Isenhower III, the commander of the 1st Armored Division, was suggesting to a room packed with spectators earlier this month that a key cause of the mold and other poor living conditions in the Army is soldiers and families not maintaining their living spaces. The mold in particular, pictures of which have made the rounds on social media and become something of a shorthand for the dire state of many Army barracks, has been the subject of multiple investigations revealing rooms made fuzzy with growing...

    President Joe Biden’s administration announced on Tuesday there were no plans to claw back and re-freeze $6 billion in Iranian assets after Tehran-backed Hamas launched the deadliest attack against the country of Israel in decades. In an interview with Fox News, National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said there are no plans to re-freeze those assets, which were released about a month ago. “The $6 billion, that the Qataris are holding that was unfrozen in order to get three hostages back.” Fox News’ Martha MacCallum said, asking: “Is that money now going to be refrozen?” “I don’t...
  • Trump Was Only U.S. President to Make Major Funding Cuts to Palestinians over Terror

    President Joe Biden offered strong support to Israel this week after massive terror attacks by the Palestinian Hamas terror group, but said nothing about following President Donald Trump’s example of withdrawing funds that may have benefited terrorism. In fact, President Donald Trump was the first U.S. president to cut aid to the Palestinians because of concerns about subsidies that the Palestinian Authority (PA) pays to terrorists and their families — what critics have called the “pay to slay” program.

    Let me paint a scenario for you. There’s a raging fire, right? And you call the fire department to come and take care of it. You’re expecting a truck to roll in along with a dozen firefighters to fight back against the flames and keep people safe. But then only two people show up with a smaller fire truck that barely has the capacity to shoot any water. You make a phone call to the higher-ups, demanding that more firefighters come to take care of the flames. But the person who’s in charge denies you, saying there’s no real harm...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Source,” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) responded to a question on whether he’d hold up a bill to prevent a government shutdown if it doesn’t have Ukraine funding by stating that “we’re going to do whatever we have to do to fight to make sure Ukraine funding happens and it happens in a way that gives them the unbroken resources that they need to continue to repel this Russian invasion.” Host Kaitlan Collins asked, “Are you willing to hold up any bill that comes to the Senate without that funding for Ukraine in it?”

    The Biden administration is “scrambling” to try to assure U.S. allies that American aid to Ukraine will continue despite growing Republican opposition to it, according to a report. Four sources told Axios that President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken plan to call several of their counterparts in Europe and will hold a conference call with leaders of the G7 countries and several other European allies. A European diplomat told the outlet that the Biden administration told allies it is working on an agreement with Congress to allow continued military aid to Ukraine. The outreach began Sunday after...

    During an appearance on Monday’s broadcast of “Hannity,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said he rejected funding for Ukraine until the border was secured and the fiscal house was in order. “Fiscal responsibility and border security, I think, have got to be Republicans’ top two priorities,” FNC host Sean Hannity said. “That would have worked. Why didn’t that pass?” “Well, you’ll have to talk to the ones who voted against it,” Roy replied. “Look, the reason it didn’t pass was because some people didn’t want to have anything that continued moving in the direction with something like a continuing resolution. But...

    The United States may have avoided a government shutdown on Saturday – but the lack of additional funding for Ukraine in the spending bill has left some residents in the war-torn nation nervous.Though US President Joe Biden lauded the deal reached by lawmakers, he also acknowledged the lack of new funding for Ukraine, vowing Washington “will not walk away” from Kyiv. Meanwhile, a bipartisan group of leaders in the US Senate also promised to vote on more aid for Ukraine.For some in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, the drama that has engulfed Congress for the past week is little more than...

    House Republicans moved to strip $300 million in Ukraine aid from their defense spending bill Wednesday night and set up a separate vote on the funds, reversing course ahead of an expected final vote this week and amid uncertainty about whether the bill would pass. The House Rules Committee convened a last-minute meeting to remove the funding for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative — which is intended for training Ukrainian soldiers and purchasing weapons — from the Department of Defense appropriations bill. The panel approved it to move as a stand-alone bill. The party-line vote to remove the funding from...
