“We are steamrolling down a road that leads to nuclear war, and meanwhile the global economy is starting to implode at frightening speed. If you are still delusional enough to believe that everything will work out ‘just fine’ somehow, then I really feel sorry for you.”—Michael Snyder
America’s debt is now $30.4 trillion, according to usdebtclock.org, and it represents the greatest national security threat.
But the political class doesn’t care. In fact, both parties want to do everything they can to put America in an even more danger and perilous situation.
Enter the Biden regime which asked for record “defense” spending at $813 billion, according to Common Dreams. That’s a 5.21% jump, a $31 billion increase from Fiscal Year 2022.
The regime’s budget request includes $773 billion to the Pentagon, the same agency funding immoral research in biolabs around the world, and $6.5 billion to support Ukraine in the proxy war being conducted by the Military Industrial Complex.
The Republican response is they want even more war spending.
The Washington Times reported that the Biden regime’s request is a “real increase of just 1.5% after inflation,” and the GOP wants it to be 5% above inflation. Of course, spending for both parties is based on the rigged price inflation numbers and what perceived boogeyman they can sell to the public, not on actual needs or Constitutionality of programs or agencies.
“The Chinese Communist Party understands hard power,” said Sen. James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma). “That’s why they announced a 7.1% defense budget increase this year, continuing their unprecedented military modernization and increasingly aggressive behavior.”
China is not the boogeyman. It’s taking advantage of the bipartisan destruction of our economy and the U.S. dollar at the hands of Washington, D.C. And a side note, China is most likely not to blame for COVID. The evidence clearly points being American made with American taxpayer dollars and largely on American soil by Anthony Fauci and the health crime syndicate.
Not every member of the GOP is on the same page. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) was blocking a sanction bill against Russia, according to Politico, which led to his fellow members decrying him undermining their message, because messaging is more important than principles to the GOP.
“Somebody ought to read the bills, don’t you think? Most of this is symbolic,” Paul said.
And the main sticking point for Paul was vague language, according to another Politico piece, which he said “you set up something so wide open that you could have abuse of a president whose allowed to sanction anyone in the world for anything they feel like.”
Think about that. The GOP is upset with one of its senators for not wanting Joe Biden to have ultimate sanctioning powers. Seriously, the GOP wanted to give absolute sanctioning powers to Biden. A few days ago, The Hill reported that a deal was made to clear up the language. Let’s hope that’s true.
Regardless, America’s economy stands at a point of ignominious oblivion due to decades and decades of bipartisan central planning. Everything, from our massive debt as a nation to the deep state’s clear objective to start a massive war, suggests the “defense” spending, which doesn’t defend us, needs to be drastically cut.
Tom Mullen writes:
“American taxpayers are going to be regaled with propaganda about the need to increase military spending in reaction to Putin’s invasion and accede to even more troops deployed overseas. The logical conclusion to draw from all this is precisely the opposite.”
“U.S. military spending should be cut drastically, and its overseas deployments ended as obsolete relics of a bygone age. America’s nuclear deterrent, air force, and useful portion of its navy could be maintained at a fraction of the gargantuan rip off currently being perpetrated against American taxpayers.”
“Since this bloated military won’t ever be used against a First World power and has already demonstrated its inability to defeat a Third World one, we have nothing to lose but runaway deficits and a massive debt that will eventually destroy our currency and way of life.”
“While we’re in cost-cutting mode, it’s time to clean house at the U.S. State Department and within the ‘intelligence community,’ too, rooting out all the career ‘foreign policy experts’ who get us into so much trouble around the world.”
