Additional Aid to Ukraine or Money Laundering?

At what point do we start to hold our elected officials accountable? Time and time again we have in depth conversations about the nefarious nature of our legislative body. Nothing is ever done about it because all we do is talk about it.

The first Ukrainian supplemental appropriations act was passed on March 10th just 2 months ago. In that bill they stated that it would cover $13.6 billion but the bill actually cost the taxpayer closer to $16 billion. Over half of that bill went to the Department of Defense. $10 billion dollars to be exact. It also covered DOJ salaries, Attorney salaries, FBI salaries, Department of Commerce salaries, Treasury salaries, Office of Terrorism Salaries, and State Department Salaries. In that bill they spent $25 million to fund global media amongst other things. I covered the first bill in depth here on America's Tribune and across social media. You can check out the 2 articles below.

H.R 7691 Additional Aid to Ukraine

The bill passed the House on May 10th with a 368-57 vote and only 57 representatives voted against the bill, all Republican. This means that 154 Republicans voted in favor of it. The bill is 30 pages long and will cost the American taxpayer $40 billion dollars, $39.568 billion to be exact. Almost half of the funding goes to President Biden ($17.131 billion) to shift and appropriate in any manner he chooses. While using placeholder to fill the contents of the bill. These bills are a rabbit hole by default. That, however, does not distract from the content of the bill. It is common knowledge that these bills will be replaced with provisions in the future utilizing future legislation and fund shifting.

So, let’s break down the contents of the bill and see where all the money is going.

$500 million total in the additional support package

Keep in mind that they allocated $17 million for salaries in the first aid package

$69 million in two months adding the first aid package

Anne Garland Walton (page 29)

  • $174,000

Who is Anne Garland Walton and why is she getting $174,000 in a bill designated for Ukrainian Aid? What does this have to do with Ukrainian Aid?

Anne Garland Walton is the wife of deceased politician Don Young.

Don Young represented Alaska for 49 years beginning in 1973.

Keep in mind that this bill contains placeholder lines. These funds are going to be shifted and reallocated in the future in another bill and will never be able to be tracked. These bills do not mention where the funding will come from. Nor provide a source for accountability regarding the funds. Why are we even spending $40 billion that we do not have? Where is the money coming from when we are close to $30 trillion in debt? How is this not considered money laundering?

The most important point to make regarding this bill is the fact that we do not have $40 billion to send overseas. When our own economy is struggling, and inflation is at an all-time high. We are close to $30 trillion in debt and that debt is growing each day and with the passing of each bill. So, while you are wondering why your grocery bill has gone up so much, ask why $40 billion is being sent to Ukraine and not into the economy.
