    Speaking with Fox News' Kayleigh McEnany, House Speaker Mike Johnson minced no words about the necessity for providing aid to Israel as it fights the terrorist group Hamas, saying, "This is a matter of good versus evil."

    "Let's talk about one of those areas of common ground, potentially: this Israel aid package, stand-alone Israel aid. The reporting is that there will be a vote, hopefully Thursday. Is that the time that you're looking at?" McEnany asked.

    "I'm hoping Thursday," Johnson replied.

    "It looks like $14.5 billion is the number that you're looking at. And you suggest that maybe you'll get a bipartisan vote here," McEnany stated.

    "I sure hope so," Johnson said.

    "Do you have any sense of the number of Democrats who you think might come?" McEnany asked.

    "I hope that it's most or all of them," Johnson answered. "I mean, there's a few people who have philosophical differences on that and we'll have some intense debates about their opposition to that. But, look, this is a matter of good versus evil."

    Johnson explained that he wanted to take money that the Biden administration had earmarked for expanding the Internal Revenue Service and use some of it to help Israel, saying, "My intention and my desire in the first draft of this bill is to take some of the money that has been set aside for the building and the bulking up of the IRS right now. We have about $67 billion in that fund and we'll try to take the $14.5 necessary for this immediate and urgent need."

    Johnson told McEnany, "I understand their priority is to bulk up the IRS. But I think if you put this to the American people and they weigh the two needs - I think they're going to say standing with Israel and protecting the innocent over there is in our national interest."

    President Biden got $80 billion through the Inflation Reduction Act to expand the IRS. Roughly $21 billion was removed as part of a debt ceiling deal in June.

    Rep. Chip Roy tweeted, "To truly #StandWithIsrael, we should swiftly PASS a stand-alone $14BB Israel-only support package... & PAY FOR that support to ensure our own fiscal & military strength... & STOP FUNDING the soulless globalists (UN, e.g.) supporting Hamas, Iran, & our other common enemies."

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

Considering the current overwhelming obstacles inflicting stress upon America's working class: rampant inflation; energy insecurity; supply chain turmoil; banking failures; foreign policy disasters; government corruption; (DEI) Diversity Equity Inclusion narrative, with WOKE extremes practiced; Climate Change ideology; intractable crime wave in Leftist cities; wide open border by executive design; a permanently discredited Legacy Media; failed or failing education industry, just to name a few of the many: Who should Americans blame?
  Donald J. Trump
  Joseph R. Biden
  Leftist controlled Congress for the last 4 years.
  Bloated, incompetent bureaucracy weaponized and poorly managed

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.
