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?

Dramatic Visual Medical Proof Of EMF Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity In EHS Patients

Dramatic Visual Medical Proof Of EMF Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity In EHS Patients

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), or medically known as idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI) by the World Health Organization [1], is described as

… characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms, which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to EMF. The symptoms most commonly experienced include dermatological symptoms (redness, tingling, and burning sensations) as well as neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, tiredness, concentration difficulties, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitation, and digestive disturbances). The collection of symptoms is not part of any recognized syndrome.

EHS resembles multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), another disorder associated with low-level environmental exposures to chemicals. Both EHS and MCS are characterized by a range of non-specific symptoms that lack apparent toxicological or physiological basis or independent verification. A more general term for sensitivity to environmental factors is Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance (IEI), which originated from a workshop convened by the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS) of the WHO in 1996 in Berlin. IEI is a descriptor without any implication of chemical etiology, immunological sensitivity or EMF susceptibility. IEI incorporates a number of disorders sharing similar non-specific medically unexplained symptoms that adversely affect people. However since the term EHS is in common usage it will continue to be used here.

One of the most frustrating, and truly unfortunate aspects of EHS, is that everyone in the industries which generate EMFs/RFs which cause the problem, especially the professional association ICNIRP, adamantly denies it exists, and those who suffer with it are “psych jobs”!  Well, that’s got to end now, as there are graphic studies proving visual differences in the brains of EHS sufferers compared with those folks who do not experience EHS or IEI.

Below are two lateral X-rays showing the differences between the brain of an EHS/IEI patient on the left and the brain of a non-EHS-compromised individual on the right.

In a preliminary Press Release dated December 5, 2017, the results of brain fMRIs (functional magnetic resonance imaging) from a pilot study have been released in anticipation of a Tele-Press Conference to be held Thursday, December 7, 2015, in Los Angeles, California.

The Peoples Initiative Foundation will be holding a tele-press conference to take questions from the media Thurs. Dec. 7th @ 12 noon PST.  The study’s principle author, Dr. Gunnar Heuser [MD, PhD] will be on the call to take questions about the study, as well as Liz Barris, study organizer and one of the EHS cases in the study to take questions about EHS.

Please call 515-739-1219 access code 283521#

Emergency backup # only in case above # has problem: 605-472-5616 access code 106520#

The results of Dr. Gunnar Heuser and Sylvia A. Heuser’s study were published in Volume 32 (September 2017) of De Gruyter’s Reviews on Environmental Health as the paper “Functional brain MRI in patients complaining of electrohypersensitivity after long term exposure to electromagnetic fields.”

The online published paper includes X-rays of all patients in the study, which indicate the severity of EHS/IEI and shows graphically how it physically affects brain tissue.

Electromagnetic fields are emitted by the following high-tech, aka ‘smart’ products, appliances and services:

  • Any service or device that sends and/or receives voice, data or graphics/pictures using microwave wireless technology, e.g., cell phones, iPhones, smart phones, etc.
  • AMI Smart Meters being retrofitted by electric, natural gas and water utilities
  • Monitoring devices, e.g., baby monitors and wearable devices that track and record body data
  • Wi-Fi in homes, schools, work places, cafés, or other public places providing it, such as doctors’ offices
  • Routers

For all those EHS patients, who refuse AMI Smart Meters claiming EHS and have pro se lawsuits before their respective state Public Utility Commission agency’s Administrative Law Courts, this 2017 study ought to refute the utilities medical and EMF/RF experts, who still believe in the ‘flat earth society’ theory when it comes to EMFs/RFs/ELFs and microwave-produced, non-thermal radiation waves adverse health effects that cause EHS/IEI.

Why are America’s farmers killing themselves in record numbers?

http://www.blacklistednews.com/Why_are_America%E2%80%99s_farmers_killing_themselves_in_record_numbers%3F/62001/0/38/38/Y/M.html

Last year, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that people working in agriculture – including farmers, farm laborers, ranchers, fishers, and lumber harvesters – take their lives at a rate higher than any other occupation. The data suggested that the suicide rate for agricultural workers in 17 states was nearly five times higher compared with that in the general population.

Tax Plans Pave Way for Massive Cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security

The next step, according to Ryan, is cutting spending. And while Congress hasn’t gotten that far yet, the agenda is clear. If a version of the tax plan passes, the next major item of business in Congress will likely include major cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Read My Lips: No New Jobs

The entire tax plan is built around one premise: that cutting taxes causes the economy to grow and creates jobs. The problem is, this doesn’t appear to be true.

This time, “welfare reform” won’t just target low-income mothers; it will mean drastic cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

study from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business found that additional economic growth due to the tax plan would be miniscule — less than a tenth of a percent per year in the near term. That’s not the kind of growth the economy needs to produce more, or better-paying jobs.

Meanwhile, a study from the Institute for Policy Studies found that corporations that paid lower tax rates actually cut jobs — while passing the gains on in the form of higher CEO pay.

New CDC Statistics: 1 out of every 36 Children in the U.S. has Autism

New statistics released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that one out of every 36 children in the U.S. now are diagnosed with autism. The rate in 2013 was one out of 50, in 2008 the rate was one out of 88, in 2002 the rate was one out of 250, and in 1980, six years before Congress and President Reagan passed a law giving vaccine manufacturers total legal immunity for injuries or deaths caused by vaccines, the rate was only one out of 10,000. MIT researcher Dr. Stephanie Seneff has stated that given current trends, by the year 2025 half of all children will be diagnosed with autism.
To break down the data supplied by the CDC, the VAXXED team turned to Dr. Brian Hooker. Dr. Hooker is perhaps the most knowledgeable person in the world regarding the CDC and the data they have compiled regarding vaccines and autism. Dr. Hooker is the father of a vaccine-injured child, and is a Ph.D. researcher. He has fought against the CDC for more than 14 years, using the Freedom of Information Act to try and gather as much data as he could from the studies that the CDC has published that claim there is no link between vaccines and autism. He has submitted much of the results of his own internal investigation of the CDC data on vaccines and autism to Congress. Congressman Bill Posey has assisted him in forcing the CDC to comply with many of these requests.
After almost 12 years, his tireless pursuit of finding the truth resulted in the CDC finally handing over documents so that Dr. Hooker could look at the raw data that the CDC used to claim that there was no link between vaccines and autism. It took some Congressional pressure from Congressman Bill Posey to get this information. Shortly after that, one of the top vaccine scientists at the CDC contacted him to become a whistleblower regarding vaccine research fraud. The story of this CDC scientist whistle-blower is featured in the film, VAXXED. In this interview from December 5, 2017, Dr. Hooker discusses the new report issued by the CDC that covers the current rate of autism, and explains how the CDC has downplayed the significance of the data in their report. Dr. Hooker gives us the alarming news that the CDC numbers are actually too low, and that the real rate of autism is much higher.

TRUMP WHITE HOUSE WEIGHING PLANS FOR PRIVATE SPIES TO COUNTER “DEEP STATE” ENEMIES

TRUMP WHITE HOUSE WEIGHING PLANS FOR PRIVATE SPIES TO COUNTER “DEEP STATE” ENEMIES

December 5th, 2017

Via: The Intercept:

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering a set of proposals developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer — with assistance from Oliver North, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal — to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the White House with a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials and others familiar with the proposals. The sources say the plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering “deep state” enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Trump’s presidency.

The creation of such a program raises the possibility that the effort would be used to create an intelligence apparatus to justify the Trump administration’s political agenda.

“Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him,” said a former senior U.S. intelligence official with firsthand knowledge of the proposals, in describing White House discussions. “It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books,” this person said, meaning the intelligence collected would not be shared with the rest of the CIA or the larger intelligence community. “The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.”
