Watch Live: President Biden Explains Why Ukraine Needs Another $33 Billion Of US Taxpayer Money | ZeroHedge News

 

President Biden will deliver remarks this morning to explain why US taxpayers need to send another $33 billion of “aid” to Ukraine to “Support Ukrainians Defending Their Country and Their Freedom Against Russia’s Brutal War.”

As AP reports, Biden’s latest proposal – which the officials said was expected to last for five months – has more than $20 billion in military assistance for Ukraine and for bolstering defenses in nearby countries.

There is also $8.5 billion in economic aid to help keep Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s government functioning and $3 billion for food and humanitarian programs to help civilians and other spending, said the officials, who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly.

The proposal would more than double the initial $13.6 billion package of defense and economic aid for Ukraine and Western allies that Congress enacted last month.

Biden last week warned that $6.5 billion earmarked for security assistance for Ukraine could soon be “exhausted” and that Congress would need to approve supplemental funding. More than half of the approved money for weapons and equipment for Ukraine’s military has already been drawn down.

It seemed to signal a long-term U.S. commitment to staving off Russian President Vladimir Putin’s attempt to expand his nation’s control of its neighbor, and perhaps beyond.

We have one quick question – how many billions of dollars does it take to turn a ‘proxy’ war into a ‘direct conflict’?

As Politico’s Christopher Miller noted, this proposal “dwarfs the annual defense budgets of most nations.”

    Until we get Americans off the streets, and can feed and house them, we don’t need to be giving away money that Americans do not have. Our veterans living on the street, have now been denied medical care, and live in horrible conditions. And we are to give the military how much money to take care of Ukraine? What would that amount of money do to help Americans? A lot! Of course, we can’t expect anything more than what they are giving Americans already. They are attempting to wipe out all native Americans, and replace them with illegal aliens. Think about it…
    Illegal aliens come here, unvetted, untested for disease, and let run free in America giving them money monthly, and no vaccines. Americans are forced to take a deadly gene therapy, which we all know is killing them. After all, 769 healthy athletes killed over this past year, while participating in sports. Babies are having heart attacks. They are literally killing us. Then they are pushing for the 5th shot for people over 50 years of age.

    We will all be replaced with illegal aliens that know nothing about Constitutional and Civil Rights, the Constitution, or our way of life. Those are the people that they wish Americans to be now. The numbers of deaths shown at the CDC for C-19 deaths were over inflated, while the deaths from the jab have been way understated, they are in the process of removing files showing the true numbers of death from the jabs.
    Other countries, having learned that all 3 “vaccines” are killing their people, have stopped mandatory shots. Not America.
    We have a laughing stock President, who cannot concentrate long enough to be able to make it through a 5 minute speech. When Obama was at the White House, it was plain to see who is pulling the strings, all the while Biden is walking around shaking hands with invisible people. Walking around like a lost puppy, that someone kicked.

    America has become pathetic, and yet, we do nothing.
