How Long Will It Take the U.S. to Replenish
the Munitions We've Given Away?

Before we get into the question of how long it will take to replenish U.S. military stockpiles depleted by Joe Biden’s ongoing aid to Ukraine, let’s first catch up. My colleague Streiff has written extensively on the Russia-Ukraine War, including the eagerness of Biden and the Democrat Party to fund the endless war. Here are several of Streiff’s reports: White House Asks for Another $37 Billion in Ukraine Aid; Congress Needs to Say No- 40 Nations Meet at Ramstein to Coordinate Ukraine Aid and Further Integrate Ukraine Into NATO-

Take a couple of U-Hauls over to Afghanistan and drag a few million dollars of US military leftovers back to some place they would be of more use.

A conspiracy theory is not the avenue I usually like to follow. However, I can't help but wonder if Ukraine has a Swiss bank account. A secret locked box that contains a thumb drive with incriminating evidence that FJB and his son have commited treason. It will stay locked as long as The Big Guy forks over $billions and $billions for their war effort. Otherwise the floodgates will open and they will bring FJB to his knees. It makes sense. Why else is FJB wiping this guy's butt with our $billions? Besides when you throw around that much $cash you know that a lot of people are getting kickbacks on so many levels.

All weapons with explosives or rockets have a very finite shelf life. I'd like to know exactly how long those weapons had left on their shelf lives. When I worked with the scientists at White Sands they told me that all their rocket sled runs free, were powered with outdated rocket motors from various air-to-air and ground fired missiles....all 'dangerous junk' the day they reach the end of their shelf life. Normally they are burned in the desert. At least some of the munitions were like milk that's been in the refrigerator for two weeks....use it soon, or toss it out. And the military vehicles are outdated surplus, in general. 60s vintage M113 APCs and early model, superceded and retired Bradleys aren't something that we will ever use again. Quoting the dollars that were paid new for munitions with little shelf life left, or surplussed and superceded fighting vehicles when counting the value of the weapons given is dishonest. Try telling the IRS that the 1995 Chevy you donated to charity is worth it's original new price and you will get audited and a fine.

Ok #3 so that you can feel better about your theory try this one on for size. Between burning down our military hardware, curtailing our energy production and delivery infrastructure, depleting our oil reserves, we are being positioned to capitulate to China on the basis that we can't win for lack of resources. As for our ability to replenish, we have gutted our manufacturing base so there's no industry to even convert to arms. Example: In the 40's Singer Sewing machine manufactured M1 Garands. Now they make their sewing machines in, wait ior it....China. Our dependency on those stockpiles can't be over stated. I sincerely hope it's a simple money grab so the industrial military complex gets to rake in more by replacing everything and China has purchased enough influence to take Taiwan unopposed. Yea, that's my upside theory.

Senator Lindsey Graham desperately wants more money and weapons for Ukraine.  Recently standing in Kyiv alongside two (other?)

Electric Vehicles Are an Ideologically

As more motorists own electric vehicles (EVs) and experience problems operating them, evidence shows that the movement to abandon gas-powered vehicles is ideologically motivated and unsupported by rational economic calculation. In January 2023, four Wyoming state senators and two representatives introduced Senate Joint Resolution No. SJ004 to ban the sale of EVs in Wyoming by 2035. The proposed legislation stressed that “Wyoming’s vast stretches of highway, coupled with a lack of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, make the widespread use of electric vehicles impracticable for the state.”

Currently, Americans aren’t reproducing at the replacement rate. So, some level of immigration will be needed in order to prevent a disastrous population implosion. But how much immigration should we have, and on what basis should we select our immigrants? When someone in a poorer country says she wants to become an American, it’s not nice to say no. It also makes me a bit uneasy for our government to select would-be immigrants based on the purported “value” of those immigrants. On the other hand, an immigration lottery is so arbitrary that it seems its own sort of cruelty. The alternative, which very few people openly advocate, is open borders:

Comer previously said he believes banks have taken out more than 150 reports on Hunter Biden and “other Biden family members.” Assistant Treasury Secretary for Legislative Affairs Jonathan Davidson told Comer on Wednesday that he failed to

As we slide further down the slope into multinational technocracy, the rhetoric will gradually shift in this direction.

The university wants researchers to explore “the cultural and aesthetic changes instigated by titanium white … and how can both the material in itself and these changes be conceptualized and made visible?”
