"We've been taken over by a hostile power. That's the best way to look at it," he told host Ann Vandersteel during the July 19 episode of "Right Now with Ann Vandersteel" on Brighteon.TV. "We have completely been taken over. We didn't sign up for this. Every day, they violate the Constitution. There's not a single day that they follow it and they don't even care. They don't care to let you know that they're just going to do what they want."
According to Mannarino, the entire world – including America's enemies – can just do whatever they want while U.S. President Joe Biden occupies the White House. Russian President Vladimir Putin sending his troops into Ukraine proved this point. The podcaster also warned that China may soon invade Taiwan, mirroring Moscow's actions.
Vandersteel, meanwhile, remarked that it remains a big question mark whether America is sending a woke military or its finest troops to defend Taiwan, especially with the Biden administration more concerned with Ukraine than securing the border of the continental United States.
In response, Mannarino said it makes no sense that America's military is not getting the best weaponry, the best training and the best capability to destroy their enemies. He also referenced remarks from Biden himself admitting that the U.S. military is already low on ammunition.
"This is a war relating to munitions," Biden told Fareed Zakaria of the fake news network CNN in a July 2023 interview. "They're running out of ammunition, and we're low on it."
The president's admissions provoked derision among conservatives on social media. Conservative communicator Steve Guest tweeted: "Does Biden not care that our adversaries in China are listening?"
Tech entrepreneur David Sacks, meanwhile, wrote: "The point of the proxy war was to weaken Russia, but the U.S. ran out of ammo first. So who's weakening whom?"
Despite Biden's admission, Mannarino lamented how the White House continues to send more weapons to Ukraine.
The podcaster also lamented how the U.S. military under Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has become a woke training camp. Under his leadership, the military has focused on discussing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) rather than vanquishing America's foes.

Back in June 2021, The Hill reported about the defense secretary's espousal of DEI programs in the Defense Department during a Senate hearing. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) repeatedly asked Austin whether members of the military should be treated differently based on their skin color or sex. The senator expected a yes or no answer from the defense secretary, something he failed to obtain.
"This question deserves more than a yes or no answer," Austin said. "I do not believe that, and that is why we have DEI focus in the military."
Mannarino ultimately remarked that America's woke military is going to be the death of the country. Vandersteel agreed with her guest, mentioning that the U.S. is sitting on the cusp of a two-front war with Russia and China with a military that has been indoctrinated into this woke ideology led by Austin.
She also noted that the defense secretary does not have an oath of office on file. The rest of Biden's cabinet, including Vice President Kamala Harris, likewise do not have these oaths on file.
"We have an illegitimate government, 100 percent. They're illegitimate. This is a Class A felony impersonating a public servant of the U.S.," the "Right Now" host said.
"Our entire government has been co-opted by corporations that are controlling agencies that have powers delegated to them by the executive and legislative branches that are mandating … a whole host of other things. We are completely surrounded by this corporation."
