Happy holidays, America, now support The Uniparty’s massive $1.7 trillion spending bill, pay your taxes, and kick rocks.
That’s the message from our elder statesmen in Washington, D.C. these days.
You’ve spent your whole year working hard, getting taxed out the wazoo, and for what?
Well, you’ve been busting your butt at your 9-5 (and then some) so that your hard-earned money can be used to grow the size of government and give billions upon billions to Left-leaning causes touted by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as “a strong outcome for Republicans.”
What sort of programs does McConnell love? Holding the feds accountable? Protecting American sovereignty? Dismantling a tyrannical government?
That comes after the G-men were busted running political coverage for the Biden gang, pushing social media to censor certain stories, raiding journalists and pro-life dads, and more.
Perhaps with historic inflation, the FBI will have to increase the amount of cash it gives to social media companies to squash stories that it deems threats to
The bill does give more than $1.5 billion for “border management requirements of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”
That sounds great — until you realize that the bill explicitly says that funding given to Border Patrol cannot be used to secure the American border. Here’s the relevant portion:
“None of the funds provided in subsection shall be used—
to hire permanent Federal employees;
for any flight hours other than those flown by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Air and Marine Operations, except for internal transportation of noncitizens;
or to acquire, maintain, or extend border security technology and capabilities, except for technology and capabilities to improve Border Patrol processing.
What that means is that the U.S. can use the funding to fly illegal aliens around the country and get them in more quickly.
As explained by Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN), “As a result, this funding, which Democrats will claim is to address the border crisis they created, will only make it worse by more quickly and comfortably resettling migrants in places like Tennessee.”
Some borders matter to the Democrats and 21 Republicans who voted in support of the legislation — but just not the borders of this country.
The law gives $45 billion to Ukraine to defend itself. It should be noted that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is prepared to say it’s not enough Wednesday night during his speech to a joint session of Congress.
It also gives $150 million — and not a penny less — to the Middle Eastern nation of Jordan.
Other entities getting a raise include the National Institutes of Health — going from $45 billion to a whopping $47.5 billion.
Readers might like to know that Congress’ office of “diversity and inclusion” will receive $26 million as well.
The bill, believe it or not, even puts plants over people.
As noted by Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS), “$575 million in a global health section allocated for ‘family planning/reproductive health, including in areas where population growth threatens biodiversity or endangered species.'”
At a time when America’s birth rate is plummeting, The D.C. Establishment is putting half a billion toward depopulation efforts to protect nature.
If you think the Republicans got a rotten deal and want your representatives to oppose the plan, then you must not support U.S. troops and want to help the Chinese Communist Party, according to McConnell.
“There are literally two options before us,” the Senate minority leader said of the bill. “Number one, we can pass this bill, give our service members and commanders the resources they need, flip the president’s broken budget request on its head, and actually cut baseline, non-defense, non-veteran spending in real dollars while we’re at it. Or we can fail to pass this bill and give our armed forces confusion and uncertainty while the Chinese Communist Party continues to help their military commanders pour money into new research and new weapons.”

Of course, McConnell’s stance is no surprise.
His top priority for practically all of 2022 has been the war in Ukraine. From May to December, he has told the press that that effort is his main focus.
Republican voters have been focused on illegal immigration, inflation, crime, and the economy. But, hey, maybe next year you’ll get a GOP representing your interests in Congress for Christmas.
In the meantime, be prepared to pay the taxman every last dime you owe and then some — because the omnibus also gives the IRS more than $5 billion for tax enforcement activities.
Oh also, The Uniparty says to kick rocks — again.
