Today, we are receiving reports that China is taking over Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan.
Back in August, 28 U.S. House Democrats were busy asking congressional leaders to back $85 billion in funding for electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
You know, the Democrats who passed a $10 million bill during the first year of COVID for gender studies in Pakistan. (Apparently that nation’s lobbying efforts hold more urgency than American citizens who are losing their jobs, businesses and lives due to a corrupt federal goverment–FDA, CDC, DOJ, FBI–with their mandates, restrictions and media–CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc.
Coincidently, $85 billion is the amount Taliban now controls (of 75,000 vehicles, 200 aircraft, 600,000 weapons and funding thanks to the ineptness of Democrat leadership) in Afghanistan.
Current White House Resident Joe Biden is also calling on Congress to invest $85 billion to double federal funding for public transit to ultimately reduce traffic congestion across the country. Why is it that China, as they did with California Governor Gavin Newsom, is awarded so many of these transit contracts?
Suppose you had $85-billion. You could spend $425,000 a day for more than 500 years before you would run out of money.
Breaking it down even farther, it means you would have to spend over $8,500,000 every day for the next 25 years in order to spend $85-billion.
You could own every National Football League team– all 32 of them– at an average worth of $1.17 billion, and still have almost $50 billion left over.
But what does $85-billion look like?
Take 85 billion $1 bills and put them in a stack (we’ll wait) after about 2.5 centuries of stacking, your pile would measure 32,768,510 feet or 5,771.5 miles high. Note: The International Space Station travels 248 miles above ear
One billion $1 bills would cover a 340-square-mile area or the equivalent of 217,175 acres.
If you laid the $1 bills end to end, the trail would measure 8,236,500 miles.
How much would $85-billion dollars weigh?
Eightyfive billion $1 bills would weigh around 8500 tons. If you want your winnings in quarters, it will weigh 1,927,800 tons.
If you took the quarters and put them into quart jars, you’d have 370,037,229.45 of them. Melt those quarters down, and the molten metal would equal 290,626,560 quarts – that would fill an Olympic size swimming pool 127.5 times.
So here is the deal. The Taliban now has access to more than $85 billion worth of U.S. military equipment, assets and funding abandoned by the Afghan army. With China coming in, they will most certainly learn our secrets and have access too.
Shortly after Biden and Gen. Milley abruptly withdrew U.S. troops from Afghanistan, the Afghan government collapsed and President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.
Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., warned that “due to the negligence of this administration,” the Taliban possess more than $85 billion worth of U.S. military equipment including 75,000 vehicles, more than 200 airplanes and helicopters, and more than 600,000 small arms and light weapons.
“The Taliban now has more Black Hawk helicopters than 85 percent of the countries in the world,” Banks said.
