U.S. ARMY FUDGES ACCOUNTS… BY TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS

I think it was the late U.S. Senator Everett Dirksen, from Illinois, who once quipped that "a billion here, and a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking some serious money." Of course, Senator Dirksen was talking in the 1960s, and adjusting for inflation, reckless federal spending, fiat debt-as-money, central banks, hidden systems of finance, and a budgetary process that isn't anywhere close to constitutionality, coupled with a corrupt federal judiciary that says that it is, and one would have to elevate the late Senator's remarks by several orders of magnitude, three, in fact, if the following story from Reuters which appeared during the election cycle last year, shared by Ms. K.M., is true. And frankly, I have no difficulty whatsoever believing it's true. In fact, if you've been following the various people who've been attempting to track all that "missing money" over the years - think of Congressman Grayson (D-FL) or Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), or Catherine Austin Fitts, or more recently, Dr. Carson at the Department of Housing and Urban Development - there's a lot of missing money, and virtually no way to account for it.

Well, now the U.S. Army, according to this 2016 Reuters article, seems to have misplaced a few trillion:

U.S. Army fudged its accounts by trillions of dollars, auditor finds

There's so much here one doesn't know where, really, to begin. So consider the opening two paragraphs:

The United States Army’s finances are so jumbled it had to make trillions of dollars of improper accounting adjustments to create an illusion that its books are balanced.

The Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a June report, said the Army made $2.8 trillion in wrongful adjustments to accounting entries in one quarter alone in 2015, and $6.5 trillion for the year. Yet the Army lacked receipts and invoices to support those numbers or simply made them up.  (Emphasis added)

Yes. That's right. In 2015, the US Army made false adjustments of $6.5 trillion dollars, and cannot show any receipts or invoices to support those numbers. But wait, there's more, because as a result of this lack of "invoices and receipts", no one knows exactly where all this money is really going.

“Where is the money going? Nobody knows,” said Franklin Spinney, a retired military analyst for the Pentagon and critic of Defense Department planning.

Well, we do know in part where it's going: it's going for expensive fighter project boondoggles like the F-35 or for warships that require to be hauled back to the USA for repairs of their sensitive systems on rented Norwegian freighters. Think about that one for a moment and imagine the operational risks. It's rather like the Royal Navy saying during World War Two that the battleship King George V contained such "sensitive stuff"(and it did, for the time) that if it became damaged far from British home waters, it would have to rent a Swedish freighter to haul it back to Portsmouth for repairs, running the risk of u-boat attacks and the tender attentions of the Luftwaffe. If systems are that sensitive, are they really operationally feasible?

I submit this is a national security issue, and during a time frame that has seen weird ramming events of US naval warships, it's a significant one. If the Army cannot account for where all that money went because of missing receipts and invoices, what about the other service branches? What, exactly, is the US taxpayer getting for all that missing money, besides very expensive systems that, if you followed my multi-part blog about the navy incidents earlier this week, either do not work, or that have been somehow compromised? What are we getting? Well, no one knows exactly, because there are no receipts and invoices!

It's those missing receipts and invoices that "get" me. What are the big defense contractors doing with all that money? One might speculate and say that the receipts and invoices are there, but they're for such deeply classified black projects, that they appear not to be. But that still leaves open the question, what are those companies doing with all that money? What are they really developing? The only other interpretive option here is plain and simple fraud, and the reality is probably some combination of both.

And that raises the issue of budget transparency to the status of a national security issue. More transparency is essential, because without it, we're going to have more incidents like the Donald Cook, the Fitzgerald, and the McCain.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Money? Dollars? Euros? and then a general admission by most of the informed that it is all fiction, all fiat-based globabaffoonery. And yet we fall back on some kind of valuation with a ($) symbol before a long litany of digits and suddenly credibility is established and we go…oh my, how could all that baloney go disappearing? It may be “their” litany, but for others, it is quantum modified accrual numbering devaluation that represents trades of technological value beyond any outdated valuation system in use by the commoners. First of all, where does a number like 6.5 Trill come from and what data system is capable of accounting for this “out of thin air”? It is a data transfer within quantum computing bitness beyond our approved accounting system for which we are enslaved to believe still exists. To admit to trilllions is mere “pennies” in a system that has nothing to with “dollars” but quadrillions in exponential data capability. It has to simply be “mind-blowing” to motivate this level of widespread deception and nihilistic behavior. Its like computing light years in inches….

  2. My main interest on the account-fudging has to do with some ‘singularity’ apparently approaching. Over the past few decades, the amount of ‘misplaced’ funds has skyrocketed. It appears that there is less and less compunction to keep this Theft unnoticed. So, I could see something BIG coming up (fast) – whether Disclosure, true Feudalism being publicly-implemented, an Asteroid or huge CME about to arrive, etc. It just seems like the PTB doesn’t care about ‘concealment’ any more…

    On the USS Fitzgerald being “hauled back to the USA … on rented Norwegian freighters,” it is actually on a commercial heavy-lift ship; quite specialized:

    Remember, as Basta recently noted: this is Disaster Capitalism at play. Expect corporations to make the most money out of Any disaster…

  3. All the missing money probably got sucked into a mini black hole created by Cern’s Large Hadron Collider. Alternatively, the Russians stole it and buried it at the bottom of a deep lake in Antarctica.

  4. The U.S. Con st1 tut t1ion is certainly dead in the water;
    hit by the PATRIOT ACT and other domestic instruments.
    Not that “they” follow the letter of the law;
    let alone the spirit of the law.

  5. Who do our military really work for and who is their real paymaster. With the resurrection of the Barbary-Cilician pirates in western-central Asia, north Africa we are in for a wild ride. Wars for the creation of a philosopher stone a la Fullmetal Alchemist anyone.

  6. This sounds like another el grande contribution to the largest black hole in the world, the US black budget. Deep Underground Military Bases, secret installations, secret weapons systems. And the granddaddy of them all, the Secret Space Program. And the beat goes on.

    https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/codification/executive-order/12612.html

    According to Executive Order 12803, signed by George H.W. Bush in 1992, The District Of Columbia – Washington D.C. (neither a state nor a part of the United States) was given the authority to privatize the infrastructure within the United States. This means the corporation that acts in lieu of a federal government, can sell any “assets” which were built or funded with tax-payer monies.
    E.O. 12803 names this authority in its destructive pages as “Infrastructure Privatization” and states that this power allows for the “…disposition or transfer of an infrastructure “asset” such as by sale or by long-term lease from a State or local government to a private party.
    We are in actuality living in a fictitious corporate state operating under the illusion of freedom and democracy, with no constitution in sight. Our independence is gone, as is our sovereignty. We are a people with no homeland. We have been sold out by our “trusted leaders”.
    In reality, the international banks and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is our “government”. We already know who owns these institutions.

    The money isn’t missing at all, it’s just profit taking by the owners through their various subsidiaries.

    1. Why do you think all those fondations that politicians seem to have as pet projects (coz running the country doesnt take up enough of their time) are tax free? No point putting the money back where they took it from.. 🙂

  8. In one year.. they ‘lost 6.5 trillion dollars… 6 500 000 000 000 dollars..’
    that’s.. 21,307 dollars from every single man woman and child in the USA..
    Where did they get that much money from and why did it take so long for the ‘deficit’ to be spotted?

  9. “Well, we do know in part where it’s going: it’s going for expensive fighter project boondoggles like the F-35 or for warships that require to be hauled back to the USA for repairs of their sensitive systems on rented Norwegian freighters.”

    Not exactly Army systems there, but I’m sure those Navy, AF and Marine systems can add their own particular accounting.

    And none of this started in the 1960s, but Reagan sure accelerated less than responsible spending on these systems. Continued by etc.
