Joe Biden is actively sacrificing U.S. national security to achieve his globalist aims.
That unfortunate reality places Americans in a dire situation they cannot control. Our current commander in chief, as mentally deficient as he may be, is prioritizing Ukraine’s war efforts over the issues his own people face at home.
But let’s face it: Joe Biden doesn’t represent the American or people or our interests. He’s a prime example of a career politician that cares not about his own people, but about the greater good of globalist forces like “democracy” and “public health.”
His own officials, however, are growing concerned that perhaps Biden is too generous with Ukraine in their efforts to defeat Putin’s Russian Army.
Pentagon officials are warning that U.S. ammunition stocks donated to Ukraine have severely depleted U.S. stockpiles, weakening U.S. readiness in the event of a conflict, according to recent reports.
The Biden administration has drawn much of the over $13 billion in weapons systems and accompanying ammunition the U.S. has provided to Ukraine from existing arsenals, according to the WSJ. While the Department of Defense has declined to disclose the number of ammunition rounds in storage at the beginning of 2022, before the war in Ukraine began, it has taken few steps to replenish depleting stocks, sparking worries that the U.S. may not have the ammunition it needs for its own protection.
The level of 155mm combat rounds, fired by the howitzer weapons system, in U.S. stockpiles has become “uncomfortably low,” a Pentagon official told the WSJ. The U.S. has sent 806,000 rounds of the 100-pound explosives to Ukraine as of Aug. 24.

Last week, the U.S. provided smaller 105mm ammunition to feed Ukraine’s howitzers in order to spare 155mm rounds for the U.S., according to the WSJ. The U.S. military most recently employed howitzers in a strike on Iran-backed targets in Syria on Aug. 24.
Depleting U.S. arsenals “was forewarned, including from industry leaders to the Pentagon. And it was easily fixable,” according to Pentagon sources.
The Army plans to conduct a “deep dive” into the “ammunitions industrial base” to determine the best way to support Ukraine while retaining necessary supplies for the U.S., Army officials revealed. It has requested an additional $500 million yearly for upgrades to ammunition factories and increasing the threshold on existing production contracts, but has not signed any new contracts.
The Biden administration has requested a record $773 billion defense budget for 2023.
