ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY
The Department of Defense (DoD), is one of the largest shadow corporations in the world. This Corp. makes and spends billions, in goods and services, worldwide. We provide everything from weapons to booze, on-site service and training, a true multi-pronged, international merchant. The merchant has become the “prostitute” of the US State Department and our President.”
SEQUESTRATION can be A NEW start
We are the only ones, who will be paying, those of us who pay Federal Income tax. The Government is looking at the reduction, in forecasted spending. The Government plans to continue to spend over their income. In an attempt to maintain the perfect “Social Justice”, we far exceed the cash we bring into the Treasury. It is as if have an open line of credit with Communist China and certain Muslim Middle Eastern Countries. What happens when, not if, our debts are called? Did you know we give Foreign Aid to China? Many see the Foreign Aid to China as “Juice”, added interest on our debt. The world is, coming to an end because, the Government, will have to cut back in future expenditures.
Business people, say if you start to enter a negative cash flow, it has become past time, to collect your debts. Rather than collecting our debts, we forgive the debts and give them more of the money, which we had to borrow. The Contractors, paid in Foreign Aid packages or direct procurements, are the friends of the politicians. A little “Pork” goes a long way toward re-election. The Contractors made their profits before the US Government “gave away the farm” and the Contractors made their appropriate donations. This is where the President can have a “Sequestration” PR moment. Would some nice cuts, in projected Foreign Aid, help? Consider the fact that the Government will have a record revenue year, 2.7 TRILLION DOLLARS, not including DoD and other Government money making activities. Being back in the black is only a few short Executive Orders away.
Post WWII, our Country has walked away from every military engagement, gaining nothing to off-set the cost and being in the financial hole. If you owe the Government money, they will confiscate your assets. Why do we not confiscate the spoils of war? Muslims have always loved, those overseas accounts, outside their countries, some in the USA. The Arab-Muslim world, understand two things, confiscation of their money and mass force.
DoD “Sequestration” is a gift from Allah to Mr. Obama and his Muslim relatives. As has been addressed in previous editorials, the DoD Reduction in Force (RIF) has been underway for over a year. The “Sequestration” is the perfect cover to reduce our Combat forces below accepted standards. Mr. Obama has stated he would like to have smaller Special Operations Units to replace the traditional structured units. The Presidents vision is a combat force of Special Forces, Seals, Marine Recons, Drones and MI – CIA Para-Military. Our Navy fleet will no longer rule the Seas and our Air Force to support our ground forces. The problem, finding the people that can qualify for the elite ground forces. These type forces are not an alternative to unemployment and require highly motivated individuals. The cost, under present guidelines, to locate, recruit and pay quality personnel will be extremely costly. Very few young people, graduating from High School, are Special Opns Units material. There is an unpopular place to recruit in large numbers. One of the highest motivations I know is fighting for your own personal freedom. Time for a little DoD fiscal responsibility.
Presently DoD is paying millions in rent to prisons for military prisoners, a few years to life terms. The DB Ft. Leavenworth, KS is in a poor state of repair, some parts beyond restoration. The old plan, should be re-visited and revised as needed, to build one major military prison complex, Low-Medium –High-Max Security Levels, at Ft. Bragg, NC. This facility, with a prison industry complex, to be operated by the Army. Profits from the factory would help reduce prison expenses. The plan would have MP Confinement Officers (CO) only, no Government civilian CO’s, with the outrageous pay and benefits. After the Major Unit RIF, MP’s would be available to do the job. MP’s would also be able to conduct all the law enforcement on military bases, another major savings.
All the savings and profits will be for nothing, if the State Department and DoD do not begin an effective Fraud, Waste and Procurement Abuse prevention and prosecution program. The key to these stated activities, “Effective” not “Selective” enforcement. As stated previously before the DoD has been able to provide these functions for over 40 years, yet has utilized “Great Moderation”. With the reduced DoD and State Department’s budgets, they can’t be the world’s, biggest “Sugar Daddy”, on Defense and Security Contracts. They need to note that a simple facts that neither money nor selective enforcement, has purchased many friends. It is time to “Clean House”, Civilian GS and Military. Too many have died and money wasted and not prosecuted. Someone must bring “The Hammer Down”. It sure will not be our President and his men. The above and much more is at stake in 2014.
