Of course whether marijuana business operators are allowed into the nation’s banking system is important to America’s national defense.
At least, that’s what one would believe given the Democrats’ insistent on attaching a marijuana reform to the pending National Defense Authorization Act.
Right now, the vote on the bill is being delayed by the add-ons, but the bill is a must-pass, as it is what allows the Pentagon to continue operations, to fund the nation’s military.
It is Breitbart that is reporting the marijuana plan is among those “unrelated” items Democrats are busy adding to the spending bill.
Breitbart reported the House Rules Committee was supposed to work on the NDAA starting this week but Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said it wasn’t ready to go, because the text is not “finalized.”
It already was the cause of a pitched battle in Congress because Republicans say they don’t want it to advance until Democrats remove the COVID-19 shot mandate for military members from it.
Now there’s also a fight developing over marijuana.

That involves the insistence by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on including the Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act, which would make it easier for state-licensed marijuana business operations to use the national banking system.
The banking system until now has barred marijuana operations from processing payments, as marijuana still is illegal under federal law, and banks are not allowed to handle money that’s known to be the result of illegal activity.
The Department of Justice warned earlier this year the banking plan could create significant complications in investigations and prosecutions.
Since the NDAA is a necessity for the government to continue, Democrats are scrambling to attach a wide range of unrelated plans to it, as they will be the minority in the House starting in January and no longer will be able to advance their pet projects.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
