Charlie Kirk -
"It is a mistake to pass a clean Israel funding bill.
Democrats and some neocon relics want to pair aid to Israel with more Ukraine funding. That's obviously a non-starter, but at least the Democrats are attempting to use political leverage to get what they want. They assume they can exploit conservative sympathy for Israel to get Ukraine funding in return for nothing. Republicans should flip the script and do the same to Democrats.
Speaker Johnson should tie Israel funding to Border Security.
If there is so much enthusiasm for defending Israel, shouldn't our leaders be equally enthusiastic about defending our own border domestically?
But this can't just be more generic funding for "border security." It needs teeth. We need deportations, not paperwork processing and expedited catch and release.
Nothing else matters without a border."
I love Charlie Kirk but think he is wrong here. We have a chance to pick off a sizable number of Jewish votes with this. We'll lose them if we muddy this thing up - which will guarantee the Senate kills it before Biden ever sees it (thus sheltering the Creep). Ordinarily I would agree but this is a critical historical moment. And we have a lot of our own people held hostage; we NEED Israel to be able to act decisively.
