Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have announced a private congressional teleconference between the exclusive confab of DC elites and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that will take place on Wednesday. Congress has allocated $13.6 billion in “Ukraine-related” aid, with “10% for the big guy.”
The subject matter of the virtual meeting will likely surround the allocation of taxpayer indulgency fees to support Ukraine and the Non-Governmental Organizations run by the families of DC conference participants. The meeting provides Zelenskyy the first opportunity to thank congress for deposits into his offshore holdings and celebrate his magnanimous money laundering operation.
Meanwhile, taxpayers who fund the congressional spending will be kept away from the private meeting by armed guards, fences and barbed wire constructed around the House of Representatives. There is apparently and ongoing concern that the people who fund government might actually get too close to the government they are required to fund.
Yes, this is the ongoing state of our union, and our voices are irrelevant to their conduct.
