‘Sure Let Our Adversaries Know’: Anger Boils Over After Biden Reveals in Live Interview That America is Low on Ammunition

‘Sure Let Our Adversaries Know’: Anger Boils Over After Biden Reveals in Live Interview That America is Low on Ammunition

“Just Joe Biden admitting to China that we can’t defend Taiwan because we gave all of our ammunition to Ukraine.”

President Joe Biden admitted on live TV that he’s sending Ukraine cluster bombs because America is running low on ammunition:

Number two, the Ukrainians are running out of ammunition, the ammunition — they used to call them 155-millimeter weapons. This is a — this is a war relating to munitions. And they’re running out of those — that ammunition. And we’re low on it.

And so what I finally did, took the recommendation of the Defense Department, to not permanently, but to allow for, in this transition period, where we get more 155 weapons, that — these shells, for Ukrainians to provide them with something that has a very low dud rate. It’s about one — I think it’s 150, which is the least likely to be blowing — and it’s not used in civilian areas.

Jim has written about our low ammunition:

I bet this is the last time we’ll hear from Brandon for a while. Biden has already shown us as weak, especially with his awful pullout from Afghanistan.

The administration said Putin is a war criminal for using controversial cluster bombs.

So we are sending awful weapons to Ukraine, and we have low ammunition.

We wouldn’t be if you stopped pandering to your cash cows all over the world.

When the ammo runs out you have to use nukes.

    Peabody in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | July 10, 2023 at 11:19 am

    Biden doesn’t know where the nuclear codes are. And out 15 out of 20 handlers would have to reach an accord before they could be used—all of which would take hours when you have only minutes to respond.

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Peabody. | July 10, 2023 at 9:00 pm

      Oh C’mon Man! We all know that Joe stores the nuclear codes in the locked glove compartment of his Corvette in Delaware.

He’s a stupid, smarmy, corrupt low class mick. Even today Ireland’s IQ is 93 compared to England’s 100. You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.

    Yeah, Biden* was dumb and weak before the strokes and the dementia.

      Dave I have been here since the Trayvon Martin days, probably a lot longer than you and I haven’t witnessed the type of blatant ignorance displayed by EHH on this site.

      I am open to a lively debate on any topic but leave the gross generalizations and racist comments out of it.

      For the record, the IQ gap between Ireland and the UK is de minimis.

      Lets looks at a more interesting stat – output. GDP per capital – Ireland ranks 2nd in the world while the UK is 22nd.

        E Howard Hunt in reply to Massinsanity. | July 10, 2023 at 6:03 pm

        Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize winning economist, has dubbed official Irish government economic statistical figures as leprechaun economics. The UK has a higher per capital GDP as measured by internationally accepted standards. Ireland is just a tax haven that courts huge multinationals to report their earnings there, even though little is actually produced there, and almost nothing is spent there by them. The often cited, twice the UK per capital GDP figure, is a joke among economists who laugh at this anemic Celtic tiger. It is a figure best suited for pub blarney. It is always amusing to see how this country that remained neutral during ww2 while accepting huge English welfare payments conducts itself.

          Massinsanity in reply to E Howard Hunt. | July 10, 2023 at 7:40 pm

          Paul Krugman, that’s a good one. Man had never been right about anything including the link between excessive federal spending and inflation… oops.

          His Nobel ranks with Obama’s in terms of legitimacy.

          Massinsanity in reply to E Howard Hunt. | July 10, 2023 at 8:15 pm

          Must be tough to look at the GDP data and see all those former colonies that have buried the UK on per capital basis, Australia, New Zealand , Ireland, Canada all left the might UK in the dust. But at least you have socialized medicine, free speech (oh wait) and diversity to fall back on.

          BierceAmbrose in reply to E Howard Hunt. | July 10, 2023 at 8:24 pm

          Well, if Krugman’s right about that, that’ll be the second time … presuming he was right about whatever got him that Nobel.

        E Howard Hunt in reply to Massinsanity. | July 10, 2023 at 7:55 pm

        What bigotry. You are an antisemite and a white supremacist.

        “output. GDP per capital – Ireland ranks 2nd in the world while the UK is 22nd.”
        I wonder how much of that might be due to US companies choosing Ireland as their pied-a-terre in Europe for “made in EU” qualification, as Ireland’s regulations for such arrangements (like Delaware incorporation laws or Liberia’s shipping flags) are way superior to the UK’s or anywhere else in the EU.

        He’s a pseudo-clever douche who tries sooooo hard to be shock-witty and is just cringeworthy stupid and sad.

      Mighty reminiscent of Biden’s gaffe “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.”

      He’s a low-rent, d-level d-bag convinced he’s clever and edgy.

Hopefully this direct admission by the WH will let the air out the tires of the Ukraine or Bust crowd of globalist, neocon hacks.

    Peabody in reply to CommoChief. | July 10, 2023 at 11:12 am

    This will cause the military to declassify certain documents that Biden inadvertantly revealed the contents thereof to the media.

      CommoChief in reply to Peabody. | July 10, 2023 at 11:31 am

      Meh, it wasn’t as if this was new info to many of us but to less well informed voters it may change a few minds. Maybe the media will even start asking some tougher questions about Ukraine, our level of support v the level from European Nations, where our $ went, why we should trust Ukraine not to use cluster munitions inappropriately when they already violated promises not to use our donated military equipment to attack Russia outside of Ukraine.

      It would be enough just to move beyond the simplistic and incorrect view that Putin bad while Ukraine+ Zelenskyy good. It’s the same sort of BS arguments deployed v Trump. What is fascinating to me are the supposedly MAGA supporters or at least ‘conservative’ types who are all in on Ukraine seemingly w/o limit. They are, at best, useful idiots for the globalist agenda and grifting liars at worst, IMO.

      There’s a couple of silver linings in there for you.

        Valerie in reply to CommoChief. | July 10, 2023 at 11:56 am

        I still think that part of this exercise is to burn up all of our stock, and then, in a total panic, demand new toys for the military. The moves seem so obvious. Otherwise, we’d have sent them stuff they could use, in the first place.

          Olinser in reply to Valerie. | July 10, 2023 at 2:16 pm

          Of course it is.

          You think it’s a coincidence that their favorite military contractor graft playground of Afghanistan got shut down, and less than a year later we’re suddenly throwing billions at them again because MUH RUSSIA?

        GravityOpera in reply to CommoChief. | July 10, 2023 at 12:56 pm

        You’re asking for the wrong question to be investigated. The question is why is Biden forcing Ukraine to repeat our losing strategy from Vietnam? The limitation against striking targets in Russia indicates that Biden wants Ukraine to be conquered or destroyed, but for political reasons has to put up a show of providing support.

        The conclusion that Biden is anti-Ukraine is further supported by his dribble, delay, and deny tactic which is prolonging the war and increasing the strain on our stockpiles and production capacity.

        PS: Ukraine didn’t invade Russia with our equipment. The invaders were Russian. And the Wagner Group.

          CommoChief in reply to GravityOpera. | July 10, 2023 at 9:52 pm

          You ain’t up to date. Those couple of cross border attacks into Russia last month used US equipment we sent.

          GravityOpera in reply to GravityOpera. | July 11, 2023 at 3:24 am

          That was the Freedom of Russia Legion and the Russian Volunteers Corps not Ukrainian armed forces.
          Either way: GOOD! Hamstringing Ukraine’s self-defense the same way our soldiers were stabbed in the back during the Vietnam War is unconscionable.

          CommoChief in reply to GravityOpera. | July 11, 2023 at 7:33 am


          Yet the vehicles and equipment used were US. If you want to play naive simpleton go ahead. In the real world we understand that the equipment and some munitions were transferred to these groups by the Ukrainian govt who likely gave these groups Intel and training as well.

          Ukraine is a client State of the west, particularly the US which created the current integration of their govt. They gotta live with constraints that entails re use of the funds, equipment and munitions we supply them. They could always refuse further aid and assistance from the USA if they find the constraints unworkable, Fat.chance IMO.

        Tiki in reply to CommoChief. | July 10, 2023 at 1:04 pm

        Media will not begin asking tougher question about any subject which undermines democrat party policy positions because they share, and are fully vested, in the very same policies. So, that’s not worth consideration.

        No one on the right believes Zelenskyy good, Putin bad. It is quite palpably the opposite. In fact, somehow Putin is now the misunderstood, kindly uncle placed in an uncomfortable position; Ukrainian Nazi’s are roaming the Donbas river basin murdering thousands of innocent Russian expat pensioners and the Fascist Horde must be stopped by any means necessary. That’s the essence of the argument. That argument underscores the apparent disconnect between past Russian history and contemporary events. Catherine I used the same propaganda tool to justify her expansionist policies into Transcaucasia; Russian lives and livelihoods are at stake! Of course all autocrats use variations of the theme to stifle dissent.

        So, we have kindly and sensible Uncle Putin reining in evil. But there’s a hitch to the thing. The “Globohomo” oligarchy have armed the Fascist Horde and pushed Kindly Uncle Putin in to a corner. And we all know what happens when one is pushed into a corner. Cornered animals become panic stricken Beasts. Which seems a natural reaction. Which leads to the commentariat claim that Putin, a once sensible man, and now an insaniac, is currently warming up his ICBM missile silo’s and readying his Nooklar Bombs.

        The nuclear panic propaganda was pressed home when the Wagner Mercenary Army entered Belarus and hence endangering a (nonexistent) Russian Nuclear Stockpile in Unsafe Location Near Urban Area. How many bit on that one?

          CommoChief in reply to Tiki. | July 10, 2023 at 9:55 pm

          Another argument would be Eff this whole thing. Let European Nations deal with it or not as they see fit; it’s their neighborhood not ours that’s impacted. That’s the heart of the matter.

          GravityOpera in reply to Tiki. | July 11, 2023 at 3:29 am

          I hate Poe’s Law. That was either the best satire of the grifter “right” and the Russian propaganda they swallowed or the worst retelling of the same.

        “It would be enough just to move beyond the simplistic and incorrect view that Putin bad while Ukraine+ Zelenskyy good.”

        I would hope so because that is one of the biggest lies ever perpetuated on the American public.

        Thad Jarvis in reply to CommoChief. | July 11, 2023 at 4:06 pm

        Bravo, dude. Now you’re just recycling old material. The sad part is you’re so convinced your weak shit is “cutting edge.”

      DaveGinOly in reply to Peabody. | July 10, 2023 at 3:38 pm

      As POTUS, there exists no authority in the executive branch capable of preventing Biden from divulging any information he cares to divulge (because he’s the chief executive officer, there are no rules controlling his conduct in this manner). He gets this authority directly from Article II, so Congress can’t stop a POTUS either (would be a violation of the separation of powers, which is why there are no laws controlling him either). These are the very same principles that insulate Trump from the charges being made against him.

      Not saying what Biden did was correct. Just saying that approval or condemnation is a political, not a legal, question, to be answered by the voters in the next election, or by the Congress via impeachment and removal from office.

      Now what do the Dems have to say about the documents that Trump had sequestered in a building guarded by the Secret Service, when Brandon spouts critical national defense information for the entire world to hear?

      Note that Trump has not been indicted for the classification of the documents in his possession, but for the possession of national security documents and for not surrendering them upon demand. So the “classification” of the information divulged by Biden doesn’t matter, only the nature of the information. My point being that Biden made a legal decision to divulge the information, as did POTUS Trump, when he decided to put the information into the hands of private citizen – and FPOTUS – Donald J Trump, making the documents DJT’s personal papers, placing them outside the scope of the law. (This, both because POTUS Trump made this unreviewable decision, as he had a right to do, and because the PRA authorizes the possession of the papers by FPOTUS Trump. I expect the indictment will eventually blow up in DOJ’s face, but conviction isn’t the goal of the Deep State. Its goal is to prevent Trump’s re-election, with or without a conviction.)

        MarkS in reply to DaveGinOly. | July 10, 2023 at 3:47 pm

        The records Trump took are his personal records, according to legal precedent, and his to do with as he wishes

        Peabody in reply to DaveGinOly. | July 10, 2023 at 5:09 pm

        So far as I know, no one has accused Biden of breaking the law. I think the issue is that Biden is stupid which is summarized in this quote from the article: “Thanks for sharing with the world the status of our arsenal.”

        If you are playing poker, it’s not against the rules to show other players your hand, but it is a pretty stupid thing to do.

        henrybowman in reply to DaveGinOly. | July 11, 2023 at 7:41 pm

        Except that little clause about treason.

    CommoChief in reply to CommoChief. | July 10, 2023 at 10:02 pm

    I see at least four neocons showed up to down vote. Perhaps it was the useful idiots and dupes the IC, legacy media created via their self serving lies and propaganda re the past several decades in Ukraine.

    Either way people who should know better or in fact do know better are choosing to fall in line for the program demanded by the DC establishment forever war coalition.

Nobody ever claimed the pedophile was smart. He just proved he’s not, again.

They have been talking about the need for a bigger production capacity of 155mm artillery shells for a while, as there is only one production facility in the US and it’s on the registry of historical places.
They hope to increase production 4-fold by 2026.

In the meanwhile, the US was trying to get artillery shells from South Korea and the Russians trying to get shells from North Korea.

    Arminius in reply to tmm. | July 11, 2023 at 9:00 pm

    Also he’s the 1st President in history to use the Defense Production Act to almost entirely benefit a foreign adversary. We need oil. We have oil. But we can’t drill for oil here. So he used the DPA to increase solar panel production. Except we largely don’t make solar panels; China does. And what small amounts we do make here use Chinese components. Could bought-and-paid-for Beijing Bai Dien be a more obvious traitor?

He’s discovering the enemy code for US, like Midway revealed to the Japanese that it was low on fresh water.

GravityOpera | July 10, 2023 at 12:28 pm

“America/the West is running out of ammo and equipment” has been a public theme for a year or more. Biden rambling about it is just him announcing his intent to continue to punish Ukraine for daring to investigate his family’s corruption by the tactic of dribble, delay, and deny needed weapons, ammunition, and capabilities.

Using Ukraine as a proxy to kneecap a major enemy with worldwide influence is not causing problems. It is revealing that we never had enough stockpiles and production capacity in the first place. Of course Biden’s dribble, delay, and deny is prolonging the war and increasing the strain on our inadequate stocks and production capability.

This is also a great deterrent to China. Their major ally is being chewed up, they are seeing how superior our weapon systems are even with limited supplies, and they are unlikely to start something with a country that has its’ military industries already shifting into high gear.

    ThePrimordialOrderedPair in reply to GravityOpera. | July 10, 2023 at 2:08 pm

    Using Ukraine as a proxy to kneecap a major enemy with worldwide influence

    That strategy is completely and utterly insane.

    Since when did Russia become a “major enemy”? What did Russia do to make them a “major enemy” of us?

    The democrats are a major enemy of America. They’re the ones orchestrating an invasion of the nation, which constitutes TREASON.

      Other than declaring us their enemy, pointing nukes at us, supporting other enemy nations, supporting terrorist groups, espionage, subversion, propaganda, etc.? I can’t think of anything.

        ThePrimordialOrderedPair in reply to GravityOpera. | July 10, 2023 at 9:21 pm

        The Russian nuclear arsenal is the only element of concern – grave concern. The rest of what you list is laughable. Traitor Joe and the democrats back more terrorist groups than Russia. Subversion … propaganda from the Russians?? LOL. You are deluded. You are probably still pushing the dems’ BS “Russia, Russia, Russia” hoax that tried to paint a true patriot as an enemy of America (the sort of thing that only leftist America-haters can think up and think will fly with anyone whose IQ is over 80 and who has even a smidgeon of love for this nation).

        And when did the Russians declare us an enemy? Don’t say since the Ukraine War, because that, of course, would be cheating on your part.

        The only point of concern regarding Russia is their massive nuclear arsenal, which is exactly why only the biggest moron in the world would think that destabilizing that nation is a good thing. I mean, that is, clearly, one of the dumbest ideas that any human has ever come up with.

          Russian nukes are a grave concern because they are an enemy nation. If they were a friendly nation then they wouldn’t be a concern. Assisting Ukraine is a strategic imperative because kneecapping Russia militarily, economically, and politically kneecaps their ability to maintain and upgrade their weapons and delivery systems.

          A lot of people pissed their pants over Russian nukes when the Soviet Union broke apart, but nothing happened. “Better the devil you know” is a coward’s recipe for disaster. Ideally Georgia and Moldova retake their stolen land, Chechnya regains its’ independence and throws out Russia-supported Kadryov, other regions finally break free from Moscow’s oppression, and nations through the world propped up by Russian military, economic, and political aid such as Iran also overthrow their oppressors. This ideal is both a huge strategic and economic benefit, but it is also morally preferable.

          The Russians thoroughly infiltrated FDR’s administration so they’ve been our enemy for near a century if not more. More recently Putin has made speeches over the last decade or two stating his intent to break America’s power.

          The Democrats rose to become a major enemy of the US because many of their causes were lead and bankrolled by Russian operatives throughout the Cold War. They are so effective and thorough at subversion that the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church is a former FSB agent and declared an Islam-style jihad against Ukraine to include absolution of sin if a soldier is killed.

          Your strawman attack/rant is completely bizarre. Democrats (the high-level strategists not the useful idiots) are evil not stupid. They chose Russia as the subject of the Steele dossier because Russia really is an enemy and because the Biden family was taking Russian money via Burisma.

          You did kind of accidentally indirectly sort of got one thing right. I saw through Trump in 2016. He is a Democrat. Big spending, anti-rule of law, anti-gun, anti-economic liberty (tariffs especially in his case), sabotaged the Georgia runoff elections, patriotic only as a show for the gullible, and is attacking his strongest primary competitor from the left.

          Silly me I forgot to mention he’s also pro-welfare (not just a little, TrumpBux earned that name for good reason), pro-LGBTWTFBBQ, pro-Covid vaccine, pro-racism (affirmative action), attacked Republican governors for opening up their states, etc.

      “Since when did Russia become a “major enemy”? What did Russia do to make them a “major enemy” of us?”
      They helped elect Trump instead of Hillary!
      They’re a Danger to Our Democraticity!

GravityOpera | July 10, 2023 at 12:45 pm

The Biden administration did NOT say that the use of cluster munitions in and of itself is a war crime as you, via quoting Jack Posobiec, falsely claim. The reporter’s question, while very poorly expressed, specifically referenced violence against civilians and Psaki’s response is that it is merely potentially a war crime.

Use of cluster munitions is not a war crime. The US, Russia, and Ukraine are not signatories to any treaties banning them.
The intentional use of any weapon, not just cluster munitions, against civilians is a war crime and Russia has been committing those wholesale from day one.

“Low on Ammunition”

Biden is also low on brains. But that’s no secret. Everybody in the world knows, except for Democrat voters.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | July 10, 2023 at 2:05 pm

SO … we’re low on ammunition, our military is more concerned about ladyboys and bull dykes than soldiers, our military is still trying to convince us that the utter disaster in Afghanistan was a good thing, Traitor Joe has illegally drained the SPR for political purposes, and the magical money printing machine is about out of juice … Even the slightest emergency is going to crush this nation.


I’m sure that Jack Smith will get right on this

So … run the military out of ammo – then suspend civilian ammo sales to replenish the military … yet another gun control tactic.

    txvet2 in reply to MrE. | July 10, 2023 at 5:45 pm

    I don’t think that many civilians have 155mm artillery.

      Doesn’t take much to convert a production line. If I remember Boeing history, they curtailed commercial plane manufacture to crank out bombers. And raw materials common to defense and commercial products were dedicated to the armed forces … critical skills get poached as well.

        CountMontyC in reply to MrE. | July 10, 2023 at 9:04 pm

        They can use the Defense Production Act and force companies to convert production to desired goods.

Score of decisions by Sundowner- China 378 to USA 0
Best money China ever spent

So the government is low on ammo? There are trillions of rounds held by the people.

I wonder if the government realized that.

I think it’s obvious this war was never about Ukraine, or even fighting Russia. That was pretext. It was about depleting US materiel and making it functionally unable to do its job, just like LGBT and vaccine policies are doing the same for personnel.

    ThePrimordialOrderedPair in reply to randian. | July 10, 2023 at 10:51 pm

    I have to disagree with you. Traitor Joe wanted this war because he thought that being a “wartime President” would goose his poll numbers.


henrybowman | July 11, 2023 at 2:59 am

Two weeks ago, Joe confessed, “I sold a lot state secrets and a lot of very important things.”
Now he’s progressed to just giving them away free.

Low on ammo? Gee, it’s been 10 years since Homland Security purchased 1.6 billion rounds. Haven’t the manufacturers had time to restock yet?

Or maybe the military could borrow a few rounds from HS, as I don’t recall any of that ammo being used.
