Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is melting down.
Schumer’s best-laid plans are falling apart.
And Chuck Schumer made one military threat that will make your head spin.
President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY) colluded on a scheme to ram a $106 billion slush fund – which included another $61 billion for the war in Ukraine – through Congress after conservatives said they wouldn’t support any new money for Ukraine unless Democrats agreed to legislation that secured the border.
Senators James Lankford (RINO-OK), Krysten Sinema (I-AZ), and Chris Murphy (D-CT) cooked up an abomination of a bill that authorized President Biden to admit nearly 2,000,000 illegal aliens each year while also providing for supposed “border security” measures Biden could simply ignore, in the same way he’s ignored current federal immigration laws.
Conservatives quickly mobilized to sink the bill with former President Donald Trump leading the opposition.
With the deal on the ropes Schumer went on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and tried a last ditch, fear-mongering campaign to build public support.
Senator Schumer claimed that unless Congress sent Ukraine another $61 billion, Russia would win the war and U.S. troops would end up fighting the Russians in Eastern Europe.
Chuck Schumer threatens that US troops will need to be sent to fight Russians if his legislation disaster isn’t passed.
This is how callously they view the possibility of Americans dying in war — political bargaining chips for more uniparty grift.

Warmongering ruling-class elites in Washington, D.C. have played this card since day one of the war – not to mention countless other conflicts that the U.S. had no business being involved with over the past few decades.
Ruling-class elites like Schumer claim Putin’s master plan is to reconstitute the Soviet Union and that once he conquers Ukraine, he’d then invade NATO allies, like Estonia, Latvia, and Poland.
But two days into the invasion of Ukraine it was clear that Russia’s army was a paper tiger, as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plan for a 72-hour war collapsed as his army couldn’t even capture the capital city of Kyiv.
Put simply, the U.S. military could wipe out the Russian military in one fell swoop if it really wanted to, but doing so would also leave Putin little reason not to deploy nuclear weapons.
Schumer knows the American people at least understand the nuclear reality of the situation, and would obviously do anything to avoid a conflict that could go that far.
But the reality is that prolonging the war increases the chances of a horrific mistake in which an errant missile lands on the wrong side of the wrong border, and World War III is off to the races.
