Nancy Pelosi / PHOTO: AP ( Headline USA ) A bipartisan group of U.S. military veterans in Congress has called on U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to not tie additional aid to Ukraine to COVID-19-relief funding, The Center Square reported .
Pelosi met with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv on Sunday after telling reporters last week she supported authorizing funding for both in one bill.
President Joe Biden asked Congress to authorize an additional $33 billion in funding for Ukraine in a supplemental bill, which also includes another $10 billion in additional COVID-19 relief money. If those in Congress opposed either funding, the other would be held up.
The bipartisan group says it isn’t “in the best interests of U.S. national security to link further foreign and military aid to Ukraine to unrelated COVID-19 supplemental funding legislation.”
The letter was signed by U.S. Reps. Jared Golden, D-Maine, Jake Ellzey, R-Texas, Jimmy Panetta, D-California, and Kaialiʻi Kahele, D-Hawaii.
“Ukrainians on the front lines of the war against Russia are counting on expedient, reliable assistance from the U.S.,” they wrote. “Indeed, timely delivery of weapons and supplies has been essential for Ukrainian success thus far in the war.”“Attaching unrelated COVID-19 […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
