Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is a rising conservative star for a reason: He puts his policies where his mouth is.
A wonderful virtue in a potential presidential candidate.
After all, Trump’s simple alignment of words and policies is precisely why he remains one of the most beloved presidents in American history, with his recent visit to Ohio further affirming his commitment to the American people.
Biden, on the other hand, appears committed to an effective blank check to an corruption-embattled nation in a war zone, with absolutely no sense of exit strategy whatsoever.
Not a totally different situation from Afghanistan.
“They have effectively a blank-check policy with no clear, strategic objective identified, and these things can escalate, and I don’t think it’s in our interests to be getting into a proxy war with China, getting involved over things like the borderlands or over Crimea,” DeSantis declared.
Clearly not in our interests at all. Though it’s certainly in China’s interests for bumbling Biden to be distracted by Ukraine while Beijing trains its sight on Taiwan.
As Taiwan is the world center of semiconductor chip production, it would be a real problem if the United States has difficulty accessing the output of this massive industry.
“So I think it would behoove [the Biden administration] to identify what is the strategic objective that they’re trying to achieve, but just saying it’s an open-ended blank check, that is not acceptable,” DeSantis added.
It is completely unacceptable … unless you’re one of the few becoming remarkably rich from such transactions.
A recent article from Politico observes that Biden is likely to face “repeated attacks about his hyperfocus on eastern Europe and not, say, the southern border” during his 2024 reelection campaign.
Especially if or when the degree of profiteering from the Ukraine War ever becomes publicized.
One thing is for sure: Biden is vastly more preoccupied with Ukraine than America.
Furthermore, Biden emphatically declared over the weekend that he will not make an appearance in East Palestine, Ohio as he apparently doesn’t see the point.
Between his dismissal of the U.S.-Mexico border, not to mention lack of empathy towards Ohio residents, Biden’s effective blank check to Ukraine, formerly known for funding his son to the tune of $80,000+ per month, becomes even more unsettling.
The only saving grace is the sheer level of taxpayer-funded billions Biden has boldly given to the nation has become so extensive that some liberal outlets with a semblance of decency (or increasingly burning desire for effective CYA) have decided to take note of what DeSantis did months ago.
According to a recent report from NPR, hardly known for its conservative views, Americans are starting to become rightfully dubious of Biden’s rampant spending spree in Ukraine, especially after he apparently cannot be bothered with most Americans’ domestic concerns.
“After Congress appropriated more than $113 billion in military and economic support in the space of a single year – and with no signs of an end to the conflict – polls show a growing number of Americans feel the United States is giving Ukraine too much. That sentiment has fueled calls for more scrutiny of how U.S. assistance is being used in a country known for its struggles with corruption,” NPR reported.
Kudos to NPR for admitting what is blindingly obvious to most of the world (i.e., rampant corruption) … and indirectly revealing just how insanely biased mainstream propaganda has become.
To underscore how insane $115B worth of “aid” given to Ukraine in literally under a year is, not to mention how likely much of it is going to the black market, it is useful to consider how many billions were spent on Iraq during the first year of the American invasion, which involved actual American boots on the ground.
Not to mention the fact that the Iraq War actually was part of the alleged War on Terror, an American-led effort.
Per a report from The Guardian, the government spent approximately $45.3B during the first year of the Iraq War.
So, in other words, the first year of the Russia-Ukraine War has cost American taxpayers nearly triple the number of billions that Biden has shipped to Ukraine, with nary a form of remote oversight on the horizon.
Even when accounting for inflation, the extraordinary amount of billions the Biden regime has funneled into a nation long notorious for its widespread corruption is staggeringly disturbing.
Then again, the amount of dark money that fueled Biden’s campaign is also staggeringly disturbing.
The “record breaking” sum of dark money donations to Biden was so pronounced that even largely liberal outlet Bloomberg wrote about it.
Clearly, whoever “invested” in Biden (and/or Hunter) is getting their money’s worth.
Literally and metaphorically.
Which makes the fears of Mark Cancian, an expert in military procurement who has worked in the Office of Management and Budget, as well as the Pentagon, all the more real.
“My great fear is that there’s going to be some scandal … Either weapons show up in the Middle East, someplace where they’re not supposed to be, or some oligarch is discovered to have siphoned funds off and is sailing around the Mediterranean in his yacht, paid for by American taxpayers.”
John Spoko, who servs as the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), also effectively affirmed Cancian’s position in an interview with Fox News Digital.
“You’re bound to get corrupt elements of not only the Ukrainian or the host government, but also of U.S. government contractors or other third party contractors to try to steal the money. There’s just so much money going in, and it’s hard to keep track of,” Spoko warned.
Perhaps that’s precisely why “the Big Guy” has hurled well over $100B into Ukraine with next to no oversight, especially if such “third party contractors” may “repay” the global elitists in kind.
And, apparently, he’s willing to hurl hundreds of billions more into Ukraine, all while millions of illegals continue to stream across increasingly open borders.
As recently affirmed by National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
“We’re going to continue to look at what is necessary, and make sure that we provide what is necessary that Ukraine has what it needs to succeed on the battlefield,” Sullivan brayed.
Unless “success” to be measured by bleeding the United States dry, almost deliberately empowering veritable enemies of the state to a degree unheard of in modern American history.
