Unaccountable Military Industrial Complex Is Destroying America and the Rest Of The World Too

Politics / US Military Mar 25, 2017 - 02:51 AM GMT

By: Jeff_Berwick

Politics

On Jan. 17, 1961, US President Eisenhower gave the nation a dire warning about what he described as a threat to democratic government. He called it the military-industrial complex.

He warned, "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist."


Its been over 50 years since that warning and, apparently, no one listened. And in the last 50 years, it has gotten more gargantuan and out of control.

By the turn of the millennium, The Department of Offense (they call it the Department of Defense even though that is the opposite of what it does) announced it was missing $2.3 trillion.

Not $2.3 million… that would have been bad enough. Not $2.3 billion, that would have been an unbelievable amount. But, one thousand times more, $2.3 trillion!

The amount was so unbelievably large that no one even knew quite how to respond to the news.

It didn’t matter though because a day later the accounting department of the Pentagon blew up, on September 11th, 2001, and no one mentioned it ever again.

Not only has the Pentagram never been audited, but now Donald “Big Government” Trump is adding another $52 billion to the more than half-a-trillion the Pentagon already receives.

On Thursday, Donald Trump offered up a preliminary budget that asks for $52 billion more, even though just last December, a Washington Post investigation discovered the Pentagon had a secret report which showed $125 billion in wasted funds.

By law, the Pentagon is supposed to have a regular audit, however, it never seems to actually take place. As a result, around $10 trillion in taxpayer money has not been tallied since 1996.

$10 trillion!

$10 trillion is completely unaccounted for!

To put that number into perspective, that is nearly $32,000 for every man, woman and child… and the 50 different types of transgenders… in the US today!

In other words, over $120,000 for every family of four has been stolen, gone missing or been completely wasted.

If it weren’t for this waste, nearly every family in the US could have been given a free home!

This year, despite the fact that both the Democratic and Republican platforms demanded an audit, it still hasn’t happened. Believe it or not, Congress has actually more than doubled the Pentagon’s budget without even hinting about an audit. In fact, the Pentagon has removed itself from the possibility of having one conducted for over 20 years by informing the Government Accountability Office (GAO) that an audit is just too expensive.

Nonetheless, the GAO has regularly documented financial mismanagement.

While Chuck Hagel was the US secretary of defense he was quoted as saying that the Pentagon’s non-compliance was “unacceptable.” A similarly confused California Democratic Party representative Barbara Lee also said, “I really can’t figure it out.” She continued by highlighting that when legislators do go after waste, they “go after domestic agencies and community organizations, but they never go after the Pentagon.”

The bottom line is not just that the Pentagon hasn’t been audited, but that it keeps itself from further complications simply by stating that it is beyond the difficulties of an audit.

If it is pushed too far, another war will start – a hot one that will remove most questions from its direction.

In other words, the US military has not only stolen the equivalent of a house from every family of four in the US, but also holds the entire populace hostage. Ask too many questions, and they will actually send sons and daughters off to die in terrorist attacks they commit worldwide AND make you pay even more for it.

The US military pays leagues like the NFL tens of millions of dollars to do “salute the troops” advertising and spends millions more on other advertising trying to make Americans believe that the US Department of Offense is helping them.

They’re not. They are robbing the entire country blind, killing millions of people in terror attacks and killing many Americans’ sons and daughters in the process.

It is an evil organization and they don’t even try to hide it. Their head office is a Pentagram! Am I the only one who notices these things?

Unfortunately, many are too dumbed down with fluoride, vaccines and government indoctrination camps for 12 years where they are forced to do their “pledge of allegiance” to the very system that enslaves them, to notice.

The US military is well on its way to bankrupting the US and collapsing the US dollar. Subscribe to The Dollar Vigilante newsletter (click here) to get the best information on how to not only survive but prosper during and after the dollar collapse.

If Americans want to “Make America Great Again” the first thing they should do is follow the constitution and get rid of their standing army. America would be, by far, the wealthiest place in the world today, not the most indebted government in history, if not for the Department of Offense.

Millions of innocents wouldn’t die in their wars, dozens of military members wouldn’t commit suicide every day and Earth would be unbelievably more peaceful and prosperous.

Or, keep “supporting the troops” and continue to let them steal everything you own and make the world a living hell and thank them and let them get on the plane before you for the privilege.
