Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec discussed the Biden Administration's historic commitment of $40 billion to the war in Ukraine.
The House of Representatives approved on Tuesday an additional $40 billion military and aid package to Ukraine, a figure that surpasses President Biden's initial request of $33 billion.
"We can't feed our children, we can't prevent foreign incursion in our own land, and yet $40 billion for a war that's 5,000 miles away that has nothing to do with the United States of America and its people who live here right now," said Posobiec.
"It's completely absurd... If you're someone that's out here saying, 'Poso you're going too hard.' Show me."
"We couldn't get $5 billion for the wall, that was too expensive. But there's an unlimited budget for war, abortion, there's an unlimited budget for whatever they want," Posobiec continued.
"We said we could bomb the cartels. President Trump said bomb the cartels and [former Secretary of Defense Mark] Esper said, no, no, no. You can't do that, that's crazy. That's insane. Yet Raytheon can buy as many javelin missiles as they wanted, Secretary [Lloyd] Austin who is on the board of Raytheon, who is yet to divest his stock in Raytheon is more than happy to send as many Javelin missiles over there.
"So, praise be to Saint Raytheon, the blessed, the peacemaker. This is the United States of America, we are losing the treasury, and people are lining their own pockets," Posobiec concluded.
If passed in the Senate, the US will send Ukraine $15 billion in military equipment, training, intelligence support and Ukrainian defense force salaries. Over $14 billion would be allocated for nonmilitary support, including humanitarian aid, and $5 billion would address global food security issues, according to The Washington Post.
President Biden has been direct in his support for Ukraine since the war started, and has also been a vocal advocate for the positive economic effects that a war could have on the US.
While speaking to workers in Troy, Alabama two weeks ago, Biden praised weapons makers for delivering weaponry to Ukraine, and asked Congress to authorize more funding for weapons.
"Being the arsenal of democracy also means good paying jobs for American workers," Biden said.
"In Alabama, in states all across America, where defense equipment is manufactured and assembled, 265 people here at this plant are directly employed working on the Javelin program," he said.
"All told, Lockheed Martin has brought nearly 3,000 jobs to Alabama. The Armed Forces of the United States is going to continue to be the best armed, most capable fighting force in the history of the world. In order to do that, we need to make sure our vital defense supplies are getting the inputs and supplies they need to produce, to protect, and provide the full capacity," he said.
As a result, the CEO of Lockheed Martin said on Monday that the weapons manufacturer is working at almost double its normal production capacity for Javelin missiles, increasing to 4,000 a year.
"We're endeavoring to take that up to 4,000 per year, and that will take a number of months, maybe even a couple of years to get there because we have to get our supply chain to- to also crank up," CEO Jim Taiclet said to CBS. "We think we can almost double the capacity in a reasonable amount of time."
