The Senate early Tuesday passed a massive $95.3 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan with no border funding while almost all Americans were sound asleep. The final vote came after conservatives mounted an all-night filibuster led by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), which stopped just after 5 a.m.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the Senate found the bill so urgent that they invoked cloture on Super Bowl Sunday by a 67-27 vote. 18 GOPers voted to sell America out to foreign interests.
TGP previously noted the package includes a whopping $60 Billion for Ukraine and $14 Billion for Israel. The other money goes toward “humanitarian” assistance for Gaza and the West Bank, along with deterring Chinese aggression in the Indo-Pacific, including defending Taiwan.
Last night, this number grew to 22 Republican senators voted to pass the bill. Two Democrats, Jeff Merkley and Peter Welch (D-VT, voted no. Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT) also voted to reject the bill.
All three had expressed anger over the money provided to Israel in the package, which would go to helping the Jewish state defend itself against Hamas terrorists.

For over thirty years, we were able to successfully run our business, Old Station Sub Shop off Jefferson Street in Phoenix, and serve our community without fearing for our customers, our employees, our livelihood, or our own safety.
That all changed the day the first tent came up in “The Zone.” And it’s why we’re begging lawmakers to pass HCR2023/SCR1006, sponsored by House Speaker Ben Toma and Senate President Warren Petersen: so that business owners like us can receive just compensation from a government whose failure to safeguard our rights has turned our lives upside down.
In a surprising turn of events, the U.S. Senate is pushing forward a $95 billion aid bill earmarked for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. However, as the bill inches closer to passage, House Speaker Mike Johnson raises significant doubts about its contents, suggesting a potential misalignment with the priorities of the American people.
Josep Borrell, the European Union’s top foreign policy official, took a swipe at the US on Monday for claiming it’s concerned about civilian casualties in Gaza while still supplying weapons to Israel to support the slaughter of Palestinians.
Borrell was referencing President Biden calling Israel’s military operations in Gaza “over the top” while not changing his policy of unconditional support for Israel.
“Well, if you believe that too many people are being killed, maybe you should provide less arms in order to prevent so many people being killed,” Borrell said.
“If the international community believes that this is a slaughter, that too many people are being killed, maybe we have to think about the provision of arms,” he added.
Since October 7, the US has claimed it is concerned about the civilians killed in Gaza but has shown no interest in cutting off military aid to Israel. “Everybody goes to Tel Aviv begging please protect civilians, don’t kill so many. How many is too many?” Borrell said.
