JEA: Just do some math here. What can the average American do with $5.5 billion? Can we support struggling schools? Can we rebuild infrastructures? Can we give health insurance to families that are struggling to make ends meet?

You see, instead of supporting Americans, the US government is continuing to spend billions upon billions of dollars on a foreign country that means nothing to America. Nothing. That’s one reason why this war is a diabolical war–one that can only find support among the Neocons, most specifically among the Khazarian Cult.

The US announced on Monday new massive aid packages for Ukraine, including $4.5 billion in direct budgetary aid and a $1 billion weapons package.

The $4.5 billion in budgetary aid is going to the Ukrainian government and is meant to pay for pensions, healthcare costs, and social welfare. The budgetary funds are being directed by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and will be sent in tranches, with the first sum of $3 billion being sent in August through the World Bank.

According to USAID, the new assistance will bring the total direct budgetary aid sent to the Ukrainian government by the US since Russia invaded to $8.5 billion. The massive amount of direct aid for the Ukrainian government comes despite Western concerns about corruption in Kyiv, which was previously used to argue against Ukraine joining NATO and the EU.

The $1 billion in military aid is the single-largest arms package the US has pledged to Kyiv since Russia invaded. The package includes ammunition for the HIMARS rocket systems, new Javelin anti-tank missiles, and ammunition for other weapons systems the US has provided Ukraine.

According to the Pentagon, the $1 billion package includes:

  • Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS)
  • 75,000 rounds of 155mm artillery ammunition
  • 20 120mm mortar systems and 20,000 rounds of 120mm mortar ammunition
  • Munitions for National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems (NASAMS)
  • 1,000 Javelin and hundreds of AT4 anti-armor systems
  • 50 armored medical treatment vehicles
  • Claymore anti-personnel munitions
  • C-4 explosives, demolition munitions, and demolition equipment
  • Medical supplies, to include first aid kits, bandages, monitors, and other equipment

The aid the US is sending Ukraine is still being pulled from the $40 billion aid package President Biden signed into law back in May. The $40 billion is meant to last through the fiscal year, which ends on September 30 for the federal government, so a new Ukraine aid bill could be drafted by Congress soon.

  1. Of course all this “aid” is not for the miserable Ukrainian cannon fodder; it’s against Russia. With the sun setting on the West, seems like it’s now or never for the globalist / neocons to fulfill their fantasy of full spectrum dominance. This is made more difficult as the US has already been partially sucked dry per Netanyahu.
    With facts as opposed to propaganda hard to come by for us ordinary schmucks-in-the-street, who knows how this war is actually going; personally i’m rooting for Russia, BRICS and a new multipolar world order.

  2. I accepted the lost of such friendship and moved on with my life.
    Now here we are fighting a proxy war with Russia and about to start one with China. I have seen Biden broken every campaign promise he made including supplying Saudi Arabia and UAE with modern weapons to massacre Houtis and bowing to MBS. It would appear the the main goal of the Biden regime is to bankrupt the US. I have lost count on the billions in cash and weapons we have sent so far and we remain silent whie both republicans and democrats continue the giveaway bonanza.

  3. Last elections I was told by relatives and by friends that I have to vote to get rid of the evil orange man. Normally I rarely vote except to vote as a spolier against some useless Governor, Senator, or other politician. Since I could not vote for Biden or Trump I voted for the Green Party.
    When Biden won, I stated publicly on this site and others that he was bad news for America. I was told that I just dont understand the program. The straw that broke the camel’s back was the Russian/Ukraine and my inabality to stand with Nutzies so needless to say friends some of more than twelve years,left me by the side of the road.

    • Jill Stein had more guts than all the Dem candidates combined. And, a real doctor. She’s lucky she wasn’t killed in police custody. Uppity bitch!

  4. The MSM never explains these financial “details” to their brain dead viewers. So, it all works out seamlessly. Pray for Ukraine and pass the collection plate! What a pathetic joke, and no one will stop it. We deserve what we’re getting.
