In a recent interview, Vivek Ramaswamy presented a very scary yet stark reality involving China. He pointed out how China appears to be quietly applauding (maybe helping) the drawn-out conflict in Ukraine and now Israel, strategically working to drain US military resources. This tactic, he suggests, is part of a grander scheme to ensure smooth sailing when they invade Taiwan. And sadly, their strategy seems to be working.

The New York Post:

The Pentagon asked Congress to replace dwindling US military stockpiles by passing a measure with more funding for Ukraine days before Republican lawmakers torpedoed additional assistance for Kyiv.

Undersecretary of Defense Michael McCord told House and Senate lawmakers in a Sept. 29 letter that just $1.6 billion remains of the $25.9 billion passed to replenish US weapons stockpiles, including artillery rounds, rockets and missiles for Ukraine’s war against Russia.

Separately, the US has $5.4 billion left to provide weapons and equipment from its stockpiles, which the Pentagon secured after having previously overvalued some equipment.

“We have already been forced to slow down the replenishment of our own forces to hedge against an uncertain funding future,” McCord wrote. “Failure to replenish our military services on a timely basis could harm our military’s readiness.”

This truly is the ugly truth, and it should scare every American.

The United States is in big, big trouble, and in the midst of all this international drama, it should be criminal how this regime has completely lost sight of what’s happening in our own backyard. We need an administration that will actually put America first and get our own house in order above all else—tackling everything from the economy to the border to soaring crime and the very foundation of our crumbling infrastructure. When it boils down to it, any government worth its salt needs to keep the American people front and center. Our well-being is non-negotiable and should always be at the forefront of any government agenda. Unfortunately, with the current regime’s globalist agenda, we are barely a blip on their radar.
