Forbes Magazine: 21 Trillion Missing from U.S. Treasury

This morning, I open emails to see what’s posted below. All of which makes me realize, again, that we need to learn how to live, as much as possible, below money. Let us recognize “money” as an artificial, scarcity-promoting, hierarchical scrim humanity has created to smother Nature’s abundance, her dynamically interwoven web of life. 

Missing Trillions

Forbes magazine just yesterday became the first major media to blow the lid off of $21 trillion that have gone missing from the US treasury. The entire article is copied below. To give an idea of how much money that is, if you divide the entire US population of around 325 million into $21 trillion, the amount missing is equivalent to $65,000 for every man, woman, and child in the country.

CBS News in 2002 was the first to report on the much smaller amount of $2.3 trillion missing from the Pentagon, as acknowledged by then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in a report on the Dept. of Defense website. Rumsfeld’s report was later strangely removed from the website, but is still available on the Internet archive.

No other media picked up on this mind-blowing story. What should have been a top headline-grabbing story of highest concern to all Americans was simply dropped. Since then, a few major media have published isolated articles on missing trillions, as summarized on this revealing webpage, yet again, these stories were not given the top headlines they deserved. They thus attracted little notice and were dropped, so the public remained uniformed of this concerning news.

A courageous former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under George H. W. Bush by the name of Catherine Austin Fitts couldn’t believe this vitally important story was being largely ignored by the media. An incredibly sharp economist who once served as managing director of the Wall Street investment bank Dillon, Read & Co, Fitts researched further and has been reporting regularly on the many trillions missing on her highly informative and inspiring website solari.com. The media has conspicuously avoided her detailed work on this.

Michigan State professor of economics Mark Skidmore discovered the excellent work of Fitts several years ago. He couldn’t believe Fitts claim that $6.5 trillion were missing from the US government. Thinking she had mistakenly written trillions instead of billions, he and his graduate students sifted through thousands of US government reports and were astounded to find not only that Fitts was right, but that the amount was even greater that Fitts had thought.

Skidmore eventually worked together with Forbes magazine contributor Prof. Laurence Kotlikoff of Boston University to compose the below article blowing the lid off this huge cover-up of $21 trillion gone missing from government coffers. Note that once certain officials saw Skidmore exposing this, the government removed many of the incriminating documents from their websites. But he wisely had downloaded all of the documents and has reposted this incriminating information on the website of Fitts on this webpage.

You can help to inform the public of this huge cover-up by spreading this news to all of your friends and colleagues. It’s time for us to join in demanding full transparency on how our tax dollars are used and to expose the major corruption taking place. See the “What you can do” section below the article for more ways you can make a difference. Thanks for caring. Together, we can build a brighter future for us and our children.

Has Our Government Spent $21 Trillion Of Our Money Without Telling Us?
By Laurence Kotlikoff
Forbes magazine, Dec 8, 2017

I am co-authoring this column with Mark Skidmore, a Professor of Economics at Michigan State University.

“No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.” ~ Article I, Section 9, Clause 7, The US Constitution

On July 26, 2016, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) issued a report “Army General Fund Adjustments Not Adequately Documented or Supported”. The report indicates that for fiscal year 2015 the Army failed to provide adequate support for $6.5 trillion in journal voucher adjustments.

According to the GAO’s Comptroller General, “Journal vouchers are summary-level accounting adjustments made when balances between systems cannot be reconciled. Often these journal vouchers are unsupported, meaning they lack supporting documentation to justify the adjustment or are not tied to specific accounting transactions…. For an auditor, journal vouchers are a red flag for transactions not being captured, reported, or summarized correctly.”

(Note, after Mark Skidmore began inquiring about OIG-reported unsubstantiated adjustments, the OIG’s webpage, which documented, albeit in a highly incomplete manner, these unsupported “accounting adjustments,” was mysteriously taken down. Fortunately, Mark copied the July 2016 report and all other relevant OIG-reports in advance and reposted them here. Mark has repeatedly tried to contact Lorin Venable, Assistant Inspector General at the Office of the Inspector General. He has emailed, phoned, and used LinkedIn to ask Ms. Venable about OIG’s disclosure of unsubstantiated adjustments, but she has not responded.)

Given that the entire Army budget in fiscal year 2015 was $120 billion, unsupported adjustments were 54 times the level of spending authorized by Congress. The July 2016 report indicates that unsupported adjustments are the result of the Defense Department’s “failure to correct system deficiencies.” The result, according to the report, is that data used to prepare the year-end financial statements were unreliable and lacked an adequate audit trail.

The report indicates that just 170 transactions accounted for $2.1 trillion in year-end unsupported adjustments. No information is given about these 170 transactions. In addition many thousands of transactions with unsubstantiated adjustments were, according to the report, removed by the Army. There is no explanation concerning why they were removed nor their magnitude.

The July 2016 report states, “In addition, DFAS (Defense Finance and Accounting Service) Indianapolis personnel did not document or support why DDRS (The Defense Department Reporting System) removed at least 16,513 of 1.3 million feeder file records during the Third Quarter.”

An appendix to the July 2016 report shows $2 trillion in changes to the Army General Fund balance sheet due to unsupported adjustments. On the asset side, there is $794 billion increase in the Army’s Fund Balance with the U.S. Treasury. There is also an increase of $929 billion in the Army’s Accounts Payable.

This information raises additional major questions. First, what is the source of the additional $794 billion in the Army’s Fund Balance? This adjustment represents more than six times appropriated spending. Second, do these transfers represent a flow of funds to the Army beyond those authorized by Congress? Third, were these funds authorized and if so when and by whom? Fourth, what is the source of these funds? Finally, the $929 billion in Accounts Payable appears to represent an amount owed for items or services purchased on credit. What entities have received or will receive payment?

Note: The above article is copied from the Forbes magazine website on this webpage. Watch Prof. Skidmore discussing this astounding news in this interview.

ET and us: Oops! We’re losing our fear; the programming is breaking down

Along with pedophilia (plus child murder, blood sucking, and organ trafficking), there’s another elephant in the global room, one which is also becoming more and more visible, over especially the past year or so. I’m sure these long slow “soft disclosure” roll-outs of what was previously hidden and forbidden are intentional. What I’m less sure of is whether or not we the people will be able, through our growing awareness of predictive programming, to stop/avoid/make fun of, the cabal’s plans for a false flag “ET?UFO invasion” as the last card in their desperate, furious overreach to lock us all up into their centralized, police state New World Order.

Meanwhile, despite scores of scary movies rolled out over the decades, we don’t seem all that scared! Is their programming failing? Are we becoming immune to fear-porn?

Just in the past two days, these two reports, one of them MSM (Reuters):

Are earthlings alone? Half of humans believe in alien life

and

Americans will welcome ET visitation, says psychologist

Meanwhile, here’s one young woman who’s not only not scared, she’s imaginative and highly creative, leading us on a wondrous tour of her many-layered investigation into what may lie behind and within the notion of The Bull’s Eye.

Elephant in the Global Room becomes Glaringly Obvious: PEDOGATE

Image result for ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

Anyone who has on his or her thinking cap knows that if there is one common concern that will make everyone wake up and take notice, it’s the care of our children. Which, of course, is why the pedophile (and worse, even worse) horror has been a big open secret for so long. We can’t afford to notice. Because if we do, we will either be forced to take action or to ignore our own core values.

Steve Beckow has recently broached the subject, and does so as delicately as possible, knowing just how sensitive humans are to this subject, while producing a decent overview.

Telling the Cabal to Stop, Part I

Here’s one among many examples of someone who survived the abuse, and has lived to tell the tale.

My name is Anneke Lucas, and I was a Sex Slave to Europe’e Elite at Age Six

And don’t think it’s just Europe. In the U.S. it seems to be concentrated  especially in the halls of government and entertainment. By which I mean Washington D.C.

Former Congresswoman: If Trump Goes After High Level Pedophiles, It Will Take Down Dems and Republicans

and Hollywood.

Mel Gibson: Hollywood Is ‘Den of Parasites’ Who ‘Feast on Blood of Kids’ 

Plus, in all sorts of small and large towns all over this land. Remember the Franklin Scandal? That was North Dakota. Remember all the pedophile priests? That was first uncovered in Boston, and made into a film, Spotlight. The sports coaches? Jerry Sandusky? Note that his adopted son has just now been convicted on the same kind of charges. Oh yes, and there’s the Seattle Mayor, one of at least eleven mayors in the past year or so to be convicted on child sex charges.

And now, possibly:

Pentagon to employ an army of 2400 independent auditors in 2018. Finally!

 

This is truly exciting news. Thanks to Jordan Sather for the tip.

Pentagon starting first ever financial audit

This glaring omission has long been noted. For example:

The Pentagon Has Never Been Audited. That’s Astonishing.

Meanwhile, Trump has asked for a $52 billion budget increase for 2018! (Hmmm. As usual, I’d like to give him the benefit of my doubt. So: is that what the audit will cost?)

I remember as a kid, transfixed by the stupid human propensity to continuously design, build, and test more and more destructive weapons for killing each other off, asking my Dad: WHY? His answer puzzled me. I now realize it was a stock answer, fed to him by the mind control programming of the 1950s: military spending eventually turns into civilian applications. So we should support military spending. What? That never did make sense.

And then of course, there’s the horrible comprehension that the entire economy is and has long been threaded through with continuous, decades-long, militarization. That the U.S. is, indeed, a WAR ECONOMY. From alphabet agencies, to national and state budgets, to aerospace and weapons manufacturers, to big tech and IT corporations, to construction companies, to violent video games and films, to university grants for defense applications, on and on, literally most aspects of this increasingly insane culture are in some way tied to continuous expansion of military spending. Meanwhile, public infrastructure rots, innocent children are neglected, abused, trafficked and murdered, politicians are blackmailed or bribed, opioid and other forms of addiction drag entire families and communities into hell, prisons burst at the seams, small businesses close down. On and on. And all for what?

Here’s what Ron Paul has to say about military spending and its effects on the economy:

Big Military Spending Boost Threatens Our Economy and Security

For friends and family who think you’re either paranoid or crazy or both!

Seemingly parallel to the ascendancy of Donald Trump to the presidency, the word “deep state” has emerged to refer to some sort of monolithic, unelected, deeply corrupt and cancerous structure that runs on underneath our so-called democratic (s)elections. Arjun Walla does a great job of compiling quotes by former presidents to buttress this idea that nothing is as it seems.

The deep state components that make up the ‘secret government’

It’s no wonder Trump wants to set up his own personal spy network to help detect and drain what he colorfully decided to call the D.C. “swamp.”

BTW: For more possible context, you might want to check this out: Interesting perspective on the whole “Jerusalem” question as well.

Hmmm.  .  . A little question worms its way in:

But is the Donald part of the deep state?

No idea. He certainly might be. But if so, why do the controlled MSM and most politicians hate him so much?

And see Ed Abbey above. We really DON’T know. So it’s good to keep on gathering larger and larger perspectives on the rot that infects our society while also, at the same time, and with an even stronger focus, pay attention to what’s right, what’s good, and what we, each of us personally, is meant to be doing with our one wild and precious life. Not just sitting around waiting for the ax to fall or the bomb to go off; instead, moment by moment, breathing deeply, we center ourselves, and consciously focus on what’s right in front of us, what we personally are attuned to, and can help shift in the direction of loving kindness.

Which is more significant? Time’s Magazine’s choice or Sott.net’s choice?

Amidst the #MeToo fusillade, according to Time, “the fastest moving social change we’ve seen in decades —

— we have Vladimir Putin, Peacemaker of the Year, according to sott.net, who, BTW, has become a beacon of hope for countries across the globe whose leaders are making pilgrimages to Moscow.

I think they’re both important. Both the women finally speaking their truths about sexual predation and gender imbalance and Putin’s amazing capacity for authentic diplomacy. And I lament that this nation does not recognize the significance of Vladimir Putin, but instead, demonizes him, ferociously projecting all the death and destruction that the U.S. Military Industrial Empire engenders across the globe onto this one man.

Let us learn to see through the forms that humans construct to lock down the ever-arising

One current example of people, themselves organized into one of these forms, called “the police,” are nevertheless recognizing that the form that “controls” them, “the government,” doesn’t.

Honduran Police Refuse Government Orders

Anarchist Larken Rose has this to say about “the state:”

Unless the deeply cynical philosopher Thomas Hobbes is right, and life is inherently “nasty, brutish and short,” with the condition of man a “war of all against all,” then the state does NOT need to exist. At least not as currently constructed, as an ever increasing intricate matrix cage that aims, quickly or slowly, to destroy all freedom of expression.

What “forms” we actually need to make sense of, and to render relatively “predictable” the mysterious depths of the continuously emerging Presence, depend on context. Just as nature creates larger, overarching forms, themselves ever changing, depending on what is needed to consistantly allow and promote both free expression and continuous rebalancing of all energies, species and changing patterns among them, so too, with human beings. We are, after all, a part of nature.! Our bodies arise from her and shall return to her! Meanwhile, the beautiful souls housed by these vulnerable bodies gain in wisdom through the lessons learned from free expression. 

Google the word “anarchy.” Notice the two ways it’s slanted, to be either terrible or wonderful! Whereas we have been conditioned to see “an-archy” as “chaos,” what the word literally means is “leader-less,” associated with non-hierarchical modes of connectedness.

On return from Massachusetts: New puppy, new housemate, black gold, son Colin’s year-long transformation

I started telling puppy Shadow

on our two-day drive back from the east coast all about the new puppy, a rescued. year-old Rat Terrier, renamed  “Hank” by housemate Dan. Not only had I yet to meet him (and yes, we hope he takes to hunting down rats), but I knew Shadow would be deeply traumatized to walk into his domain to confront a strange dog guarding the door.

And that’s exactly what happened. Hank barked like crazy, and Shadow looked stunned, and instantly depressed. In fact, for the next 24 hours, he moped around, and refused Dan’s attentions. I guess he figured it was Dan’s fault that this little pistol of nervous energy had invaded his world?

Then yesterday, Shadow actually, quietly, slowly, went up to Hank and touched noses with him. Now it was Hank’s turn to look stunned, and glad! From there the two proceeded, in a slow, methodical manner, to turn toe to tail and sniff each other’s assholes.

Okay! All’s right with the world!

Poor Alex! Our new housemate,

whom Dan and I and our other podmates had all met at the Community Dinner before Thanksgiving, had not been informed about the new puppy before she moved in.

On the same day! Oops! Nobody even thought to tell her! And she’s never lived with animals before! But she’s okay with it, even though Hank has peed once on her bedroom floor. Yes, not quite trained when he arrived . . .

Meanwhile, Dan had forgotten to check our two worm farms while I was gone. So I did it, and discovered gobs of thick black goo, black gold really, which I placed around a few lucky plants outside.

On Saturday, son Colin and I went to brunch at Scenic View Restaurant, our regular spot. This meeting was also to commemorate the first year’s anniversary of his total life change. Starting December 1, 2016, he and his girlfriend split up, after seven years. Exactly at the same time, he decided to renew his relationship with his own body. And to that end, has been working on all levels to bring himself back to the person he was as a young man. To date, he’s released 60 pounds, and has, he says, about ten more to go. His transformation has taken place due to intense physical exercise (the gym every day, plus biking), and a total change of diet (way more fresh, organic produce, no more sugar or white flour), and something that I had never heard of before, “intermittent fasting,” whereby you eat only two meals a day, leaving 16 to 18 hours between two of them. His entire regime is working like a charm, and as I told him, I am so glad that he finally began to reverse the course he had inadvertently set himself on. For the last few years I’ve been concerned that he might die before me, his mother. That concern has vanished.

Before and after shots, both taken at The View!

The before shot, from about 18 months ago, has him in his baby picture tee-shirt.

Here’s the man he is remembering himself to be! We are both very pleased.

Three strong stories: Trump as Houdini, Deep State in tatters?, and the ultimate “suicide machine.”

As I scan the internet, I sometimes run across pieces that make me either chuckle or nod my head in stunned agreement. Here are three such.

This definitely drew a chuckle. To think one can confine wild man Trump (Sun conjunct unpredictable Uranus in Gemini opposite Full Moon in Sagittarius) is hilarious. On the other hand, we can witness this kind of archetypal conflict as the two polarized ways of being on 3D earth: Centralized Control vs. — what? Every man for himself? Decentralized chaos and/or opensource networking? A bit of both, it seems.

Trump Holding Secret Evening Meetings With Aides to Evade Kelly’s West Wing Clampdown

In any case, Trump, with his “social media” savvy, does seem to be well on his way to heaving the wrecking ball into the ever-expanding static, unelected, bureaucratic state (Deep State, Dark State, Shadow Government) that sits like a humungous broody hen, laying toxic eggs.

Speaking of which: Truth Bombs and the Power of the Internet, or:

Deep State Collapsing, CIA Being Defanged, Shadow Government Defeat Inevitable

Well, maybe. If you’re like me, you’ll keep a wary, detached eye upon the ugly, unsustainable mess we’ve created with our hunger for more and more “stuff” as we work to bring another, viable future into play. For me, it’s this blog and Green Acres Village and Urban Farm. And then, when I’m done, I’m done!

It’s interesting how the idea of deciding when to leave this plane is now coming into public awareness. I’ve known that this is what I will do for decades, and mostly likely, I won’t wait until I’m thoroughly parasitic on those around me. Rather, I’d like to go out consciously, with ceremony, and please, do NOT call it “suicide,” with its connotation of sin, failure or crime.

My own choice, at least at this point, is to reinvigorate my tendency, when young, to have out-of-body experiences, and thus at some point, to let those I love know that this day will be the one in which I let go, while sitting or lying in a meditative state.

Why wouldn’t I take advantage of SARCO (see below)? (Strange name; feels evil, somehow. Why? Oh wait! The name echoes “sarcophagus”). Because, just as I chose natural childbirth for my two children, I also want to move through the ultimate bodily experience we call “death” consciously, rather than just shut myself down like a light switch.

Zerohedge gave this idea an alarmist title.

3D-Printed Suicide-Machine Ushters in a Silent Genocide

Alternet chose a different title — and story. Google “Sarco suicide”:  Lots of MSM and alt-media have picked this news up and slanted it according to their bias and/or fear. It is an idea whose time has come, now that my generation, the Me Generation with Pluto in Leo (born 1938-1958) — those of us who do remain consciously aware, still alive to our inner needs while choosing always to “do our thing”and “express ourselves fully” — begin to face the inevitable end of corporeal life.

High-Tech Suicide Machine Makes Death a Painless, Peaceful, Optimal Way to Go

Love the “lift-off” angle to the Sarco. And that it can be reused. YES! But I still want to perform the finale to this embodied life naturally, the way animals and some eastern monks do.

Hmmm. I wonder why I chose to put these three stories together. Not sure. But each one kind of forces a strong about-face, or maybe a kind of dizzying kaleidoscopic whirl, with so-called 3-D “reality” setting in differently once absorbed.
