Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut is worried that if the GOP takes over either house of Congress in the midterm elections, that will spell the end for funding the war in Ukraine. Journalistic servants of empire Paul Waldman and Greg Sargent dutifully repeat Murphy’s words in the pages of the Washington Post, raising the alarm and fearmongering about the calamitous lack of war that might ensue if Republicans win an electoral victory.
Jimmy and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the surprising turnabout in today’s political landscape where Democrats support war that Republicans oppose.

When you’re on the wrong side of so many issues, it’s time to re-evaluate your worldview.
Yahh but we wanted this war. We want it to keep going on as long as possible.
Go republicans 🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪
Two writers because it went like this…..
You write it…
No you write it….
You write it….
No you write it…
Lets both write it so the people won't know who to go after with the lies it holds
Dont buy the grift
Republicans are just as responsible for all of our current and past problems.
Never the Duopoly
Ukraine and United States started this war back in 2014
This WaPo tool philosophy makes one sooo nauseous and furious. Now STOPPING war is evil, whatever u psychos..
What gets lost is that a great deal of Republicans HATED Trump. Neocons especially hated because said the Iraq war was a fraud. Establishment types on both sides hated Trump.
Jimmy, I wish you wouldn't make fun of this. It is well known that the Republicans aren't as war friendly. We can't lose our wars, those are ours! If we leave it up to you, you and those republicans are going to take OUT wars away from us.
Under all the layers of lies, empty rhetoric, deception and hypocrisy, it is important to note that both parties reliance on mic industries donations means they are both pro war. The poor and lower middle class do not donate to political parties.
Politicians best allies are a misinformed indifferent public. IMO.
I want to fix our country !
Not fix other countries problems!
I wonder if the average Ukrainian citizen would like it if the war was stopped? My guess is that would probably be a YES. I’m also guessing they don’t give a shit about NATO. The average Ukrainian citizen. We’ve forgotten about that person.
Well, I'm not a republican but democrats have now fully convinced me to go all R's in November!
There are too many people that take corporate media as gospel. They have no idea what's going on in the world.
Anyone who looks at this situation with an open mind can see the BILLIONS flooding out are not all going to the "war effort". Lots of pockets are getting lined with all that unaccountable cash floating around.
Finding an honest and informed Democrat voter these days is only slightly easier than finding a Ukrainian fighter without a swastika tattoo. Jimmy is so different from the mainstream dems I hear on every media outlet, they share just about nothing in common.
We got to stop giving money to that criminal.
Every Republican and conservative write, email or call your representatives in the House and Senate and tell them to stop funding Ukraine.
As a South African, how few brain cells do you have to have to vote Democrats!
Dont confused rinos who are democrats in disguise with conservatives. Real ones
Look up the Rad company from Israel. Follow the money 💰
Stop all aid to foreign countries until we fix ours. Simple and far too complex for the mental midgets in charge.
The only winner in this proxy war is the Military Industrial Complex.
And what if Ukraine wins? Isn’t that a good bet as long as Ukrainians are willing to fight?
At this point no one has any strongly held political beliefs. Everyone reflexively takes the opposite view. That's why you see this switching of beliefs.
struggle sessions sound a bit too kinky for GOP anyway
The problem is there are so many morons in the US who think supporting Ukraine Nazi’s and putting civilians at risk is a good thing.
Jimmy, you're mistaking "MAGA (Make America Great Again) republicans" for "RINO's" (Republican In Name Only)
There's a difference.
RINO's = establishment actors (IE. exactly the same as Dems -think the Liz Cheyney's / Lincoln Project / the types dems like)
MAGA reps = anti-establishment / anti-war (IE. think Thomas Massey / MTG / Matt Gaetz, etc, the types dems HATE and demonize the most)
These rinos are as bad as democrats. Raytheon needs loot….
Ukraine is a money laundering scheme for the Democrats.
Imagine, not funding endless foreign wars. Crazy idea. Sounds like you may be a Conservative Jimmy. Just because there may be an 'R' in front of one's name, doesn't mean that one is pro war.
"Don't throw me in thet briar patch….", Mr. Murphy.
Paul Gosar is unhinged, but a broken clock is correct twice a day.
guess the GOP's got my vote
Ukraine is the biggest money laundering in the world.
and the circle jerk continues..
I hope Republicans won't fund Ukraine.
Ron Paul had an effect. No freebies, no gibs. You are free to fail or succeed.
Without Americas help
Who needs enemies when you have friends like Joe Biden?
