ELDER PATRIOT – “An increasingly impatient Congress has demanded that the Army achieve “audit readiness” for the first time by Sept. 30, 2017, so that lawmakers can get a better handle on military spending. But Pentagon watchdogs think that may be mission impossible, and for good reason…
The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), the behemoth Indianapolis-based agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, could not provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments to Army general fund transactions and data. – The Fiscal Times
The very next day the mainstream media allowed fifty of those responsible for the unfathomable loss – one third of the entire national debt accrued over our country’s 240 year history – to change the narrative to…Donald Trump’s incompetence. You can’t make this shit up.
Naturally, CNN (aka The Clinton News Network) led the attack on Donald Trump:
“Fifty prominent Republican foreign policy and national security experts — many veterans of George W. Bush’s administration — have signed a letter denouncing Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy and pledging not to vote for him.”
This is a new approach for the propaganda arm of the Washington Elites that has spent the past seven and a half years blaming George W. Bush for President Obama’s failures. Now, in a reversal of strategy this group of shameless failures is enlisting the mainstream media to hide their malfeasance by ginning up a story about the man who would replace them and releasing a letter denouncing Trump’s preparedness to lead our military.
Trump answered quickly and went straight for the jugular:
“The names on this letter are the ones the American people should look to for answers on why the world is a mess, and we thank them for coming forward so everyone in the country knows who deserves the blame for making the world such a dangerous place. They are nothing more than the failed Washington elite looking to hold onto their power, and it’s time they are held accountable for their actions.
“These insiders – along with Hillary Clinton – are the owners of the disastrous decisions to invade Iraq, allow Americans to die in Benghazi, and they are the ones who allowed the rise of ISIS.”
Yet despite these failures, they think they are entitled to use their favor trading to land taxpayer-funded government contracts and speaking fees. It’s time we put our foot down and declare that their gravy train is over: no longer will Crooked Hillary Clinton and the other disasters in Washington get rich at our expense.
Instead, I offer a better vision for our country and our foreign policy – one that is not run by a ruling family dynasty. It’s an America first vision that stands up to foreign dictators instead of taking money from them, seeks peace over war, rebuilds our military, and makes other countries pay their fair share for their protection. Together, we will break up the rigged system in Washington, make America safe again, and we will Make America Great Again.
President Dwight Eisenhower, the Five Star General who led us to victory in World War II, had warned us about the rise of the military-industrial complex and the threat that it posed to our American way of life:
Now those in charge of the government side of this equation have been proven to recklessly enter wars for the financial benefit of private sector defense contractors, and apparently to have conducted official Pentagon business with total disregard for the costs and spending involved. How is it possible that no one is going to have to answer for $6.5 trillion dollars until after the next president is in office? The missing money doesn’t represent a few misplaced tanks or fighter jets. That would be bad enough. This is a staggering some of money that must be considered “stolen” until proven otherwise.
It would be hard for “Ike” to get his head around the enormous sums this unholy cabal has stolen from the American people over the past half century. When President Eisenhower left the White House the entire GDP of the U.S. was only $3.08 trillion and the national debt was less than $290 billion.
The Elites keep telling us not to listen to our dead presidents but rather to follow their progressive ideas that in the past have left only a history of failure. It’s time to stop listening to these charlatans and start heeding the advice of the great leaders who protected America in past. Those leaders who have been there and done that.
