I mentioned the DoD idiocy that is a most impressive species of accounting illiteracy.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg. DoD doesn’t have validated financial statements. Four years ago, Congress ordered the Pentagon to get its act together and make itself auditable.

Towards a World War III Scenario: Breaking the “Big Lie” | Global Research

January 15, 2014 1 comment

The following excerpt is from “Towards a World War III Scenario: The Dangers of Nuclear War“, the latest title by best-selling author Michel Chossudovsky:

The US has embarked on a military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity. US-NATO weapons of mass destruction are portrayed as instruments of peace. Mini-nukes are said to be “harmless to the surrounding civilian population”. Pre-emptive nuclear war is portrayed as a “humanitarian undertaking”.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/129753.jpg

While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, it is impossible to fully comprehend the devastation which might result from a Third World War, using “new technologies” and advanced weapons, until it occurs and becomes a reality.

‘A Promise Broken’: Budget Deal Hits Military Retirees’ Pensions

\’A Promise Broken\’: Budget Deal Hits Military Retirees\’ Pensions

FOX News ^ | 10 Jan 14 | Christina Scotti

Posted on Friday, January 10, 2014 1:54:11 PM by SkyPilot

Last month’s congressional budget deal hit military retirees with 20 years of service or more in a very real and controversial way: It trimmed their cost-of-living adjustments [COLAs] by 1% each year until they reach 62.

Veterans’ groups say this reduction could add up to an average of more than $80,000 in losses for retirees who are affected — and a loss of confidence in the U.S. government’s word.

The recently passed cut, which is supposed to save an estimated $6 billion in the next decade, does not take effect until 2015, but the battle over this provision, which supporters call much-needed, has already started.

“The U.S. government has broken their promise and for someone who has committed themselves — commitments…

U.S. Should Plan For War With China – Defense Analysts | EUTimes.net

December 16, 2013 1 comment

The U.S. needs to prepare for a potential war with China, according to a group of defense analysts at a U.S. House armed services subcommittee hearing this week.

At the hearing, the defense analysts told the U.S. House Armed Services’ Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee that the Pentagon should begin a massive arms build-up, including additional nuclear submarines, for a possible war with China.

WASHINGTON – President Obama is aiming a “wrecking operation” at the U.S. military, according to a former Defense Department official who was reacting to a WND report about his dismissal of nine generals and flag officers so far during his second term.

 

And the official was joined by hundreds of commenters who responded to the story with blasts of criticism for the president.

 

WND reported earlier this week that Obama this year alone has fired some nine generals and flag officers, on top of at least four similar dismissals during his first term.

Unisex Marines: Dressing for Defeat

marine-hat-options

 

It’s as if the Pentagon wants the Marines to dress for surrender. The controversy isn’t over a weapon or a fighting tactic. It is over the design of the hat. Apparently they want to have a unisex hat for the Marines. marine-hat-optionsWhy would they need to redesign the hat if both men and women wear the same design? The new design looks like they are either French police officers or in the French Foreign Legion.

 

I have been submitting ideas to the military since 1970 when I submitted a satellite defense system to Nixon which used charged particle beam weapons. I resubmitted the idea in 1981 to President Reagan as a part of my Presidential platform for 1992. On my cable TV program during the late 1980′s I did a series on the military in the future. In the part about the Marines I drew a weapon I call a multi-mode because it could use an electromagnetic discharge system to throw magnetized projectiles toward targets at over 10 miles per second.

Pentagon Warns To Expect “Radical” Change In US Government Soon | EUTimes.net

According to this MoFA bulletin, GRU intelligence assests were notified by their Pentagon counterparts this past week that President Barack Obama is preparing to invoke the powers given to him under 50 USC Chapter 13 to hold that various American States are now in a “state of insurrection” thus allowing him to invoke the National Emergencies Act under 50 USC § 1621 and invoke the highly controversial “continuity of government” plan for the United States allowing him, in essence, to rule with supreme powers.

According to the bulletin, intelligence assets were notified by their Pentagon counterparts this past week that U.S. President Barack Obama is preparing to invoke the powers given to him under 50 USC Chapter 13 to hold that various American States are now in a “state of insurrection.”

A truly grim “urgent action bulletin” issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) earlier today states that the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) has received word from “highly placed” sources within the Pentagon that President Barack Obama this past week cancelled his trip to Asia and has retreated with many of his top aides to the mysterious and newly built White House bunker in preparation for what many in the world’s intelligence agencies are calling the “Big Event.”

 

Important to note are that these GRU sources were notified by their Pentagon counterparts last week that Obama was preparing to invoke the powers given to him under 50 USC Chapter 13 to hold that various American States are now in a “state of insurrection” thus allowing him to invoke the National Emergencies Act under 50 USC § 1621 and invoke the highly controversial “continuity of government” plan for the United States allowing him, in essence, to rule with dictatorial powers.

A pair of high-tech Army blimps is coming to the greater Washington, DC area, and soon they will be able to provide the military with surveillance powers that spans hundreds of millions of acres from North Carolina to Niagara Falls, Canada.

 

The airships are part of Raytheon’s Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System, or JLENS, and when all is said and done they’ll offer the United States military what the defense contractor calls “an affordable elevated, persistent over-the-horizon sensor system” that relies on “a powerful integrated radar system to detect, track and target a variety of threats.”

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned on Monday that U.S. troops are “close to the breaking point,” after many deployments — and Congress risks worsening the situation if it doesn’t help the Pentagon with its budget.

 

“Our people are strong and resilient after 12 years of war, but they are under stress — and so are the institutions that support them,” Hagel told the Veterans of Foreign Wars at the group’s annual convention in Louisville, Ky.

But secretly moving the records allowed the Pentagon to tell The Associated Press that it couldn’t find any documents inside the Defense Department that AP had requested more than two years ago, and could represent a new strategy for the U.S. government to shield even its most sensitive activities from public scrutiny. New York Daily News According to the official statement, the record transfer from the Pentagon to the CIA has nothing to do with…”| Global Research

A new wave of camouflage is underway at the Pentagon and the CIA. The bin Laden “death files” contained in the Pentagon’s data bank have become the object of controversy.

 

Navy Vice Admiral William McRaven has been entrusted in removing these secret military files concerning the May 2011 Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden’s alleged hideout in Abbotabad, Pakistan from the Pentagon’s data banks.

The files of the bin Laden SEAL operation had to be removed to sustain the Big Lie. Osama was allegedly killed on the orders of the US government, despite ample evidence that he was already dead at the time of the attack:

 

… the US government pulled off one of the most audacious stunts of the 21st century, when on May 2nd 2011 they claimed to have killed Osama bin Laden during a Navy SEAL operation in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

 

 

 

 

 

The contemptuously sloppy story spun by the US government, parroted without question by the controlled corporate media, and obligingly swallowed by a largely gullible Western public, was dubious in the extreme. (Brit Dee, Global Research, May 03, 2012)

“Why did you shoot me? I was reading a book”: The new warrior cop is out of control

“Why did you shoot me? I was reading a book”: The new warrior cop is out of controlSalon ^ | 7-7-2013 | Radley BalkoPosted on Tuesday, July 09, 2013 8:34:35 AM by Renfield

 

Excerpted from “Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces

 

“Sal Culosi is dead because he bet on a football game — but it wasn’t a bookie or a loan shark who killed him. His local government killed him, ostensibly to protect him from his gambling habit.Several months earlier at a local bar, Fairfax County, Virginia, detective David Baucum overheard the thirty-eight-year-old optometrist and some friends wagering on a college football game.

“To Sal, betting a few bills on the Redskins was a stress reliever, done among friends,” a friend of Culosi’s told me shortly after his death. “None of us single, successful professionals ever thought that betting fifty bucks or so on the VirginiaVirginia Tech football game was a crime worthy of investigation.” Baucum apparently did. After overhearing the men wagering, Baucum befriended Culosi as a cover to begin investigating him.

 

 

 

 

 

During the next several months, he talked Culosi into raising the stakes of what Culosi thought were just more fun wagers between friends to make watching sports more interesting. Eventually Culosi and Baucum bet more than $2,000 in a single day. Under Virginia law, that was enough for police to charge Culosi with running a gambling operation.

And that’s when they brought in the SWAT team.On the night of January 24, 2006, Baucum called Culosi and arranged a time to drop by to collect his winnings.

The examples pile up: Barack Obama treats veterans like dirt… “The Veterans Administration has dropped the words God and or Jesus from its funeral services for veterans. As many as 1/3 of returning veterans have been deemed mentally ill and this is being used as a pretext to take guns from veterans across the country……..” « Coach is Right

Recently, although he failed to return a Marine guard’s salute, Barack Obama later approached the Marine and “shook hands” with him had a brief conversation with him.

 

bigbrowatch

The follow up “handshake” part of the story was not reported and many on the Right mistakenly howled at the “insult.”This brief and otherwise meaningless “gotcha” moment allowed a half-witted liberal blogger named Charles Johnson to gloat and laugh at conservatives who had jumped on the story.

 

Score one for the Left. Nevertheless, the genuine insults Obama heaps on veterans each day far out-number this small minded “victory” in the Left’s war to smother the truth about how veterans are really treated by Obama. Under Obama, veterans’ claims take an average of more than six month to be processed.

 

 

 

 

 

Just since 2009 the number of veterans waiting for benefits has risen from 11,000 to 245,000. Some of those waiting in Comrade Obama’s cue have very serious injuries. Those waiting include 1,600 vets who have lost a limb; 156 who are blind; 177,000 with hearing loss and at least 200 who need FACE TRANSPLANTS.

Remember when under George Bush an unused wing of Walter Reed Hospital was pressed into service and its shortcomings many very serious were trumpeted by the media? The wing was closed and the problems were fixed. Conditions like that and worse are still in place but the media does nothing to trumpet this problem to protect Obama.

 

An ABC news inspection of Veterans Administration facilities found filthy bathrooms dirty linens; visible dried blood, patients forced to beg for food and water and some so sick from neglect they were suffering bed sores.In 2012 over 85,000 veterans were treated for sexual abuse suffered while in service. When the Washington Post pointed out these numbers the Pentagon pledged to fix the problem; but as most Obama pledges that too has gone unfulfilled.Obama charges many veterans the cost of shipping their medals to them.

China has dismissed US claims hackers procured blueprints for America’s most advanced weaponry. Beijing stated the allegations underestimate the Chinese people’s intellect and that China is perfectly capable of producing its own weapons.

 

A US Science Board report leaked this week alleged the Chinese hackers had obtained access to the designs of two dozen major US weapons systems in what amounted to “billions of dollars of combat advantage to China.”

New Federal Regulations Give Pentagon Sweeping Domestic Police Power

New Federal Regulations Give Pentagon Sweeping Domestic Police Power

Citizens of Watertown, Massachusetts, know more than most Americans about the weapons, tactics, technology, and vehicles employed by law enforcement.

In the wake of the Boston marathon bombings, residents of Watertown were ordered by police to stay inside and then subjected to involuntary searches of their homes.

New Federal Regulations Give Pentagon Sweeping Domestic Police Power

Besides the obvious violations of the Fourth Amendment’s guarantee of the “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, Watertown citizens were eyewitnesses to SWAT officers dressed in combat gear using weapons and riding in vehicles more at home in the battlefield than suburbia.

The militarization of local and state law enforcement didn’t make its debut in the Watertown lockdown, however. For decades, police have received millions in grants from the federal government. Cash-strapped police departments and sheriffs’ offices have traded local control for new technology and martial materiel.

This was just months after the successful raid on the Bin Laden compound in Pakistan.

According to Obama’s advisor on religious tolerance within the U.S. military, Christians sharing their faith, including chaplains, present “… a national security threat. What is happening [aside from sexual assault] is spiritual rape. And what the Pentagon needs is to understand is that it is sedition and treason. It should be punished.”

One of the core functions of government is to defend the nation from all enemies, foreign and domestic — that’s part of the oath of enlistment that all service personnel take. But only a flinty, clear-eyed — and politically incorrect — assessment of all threats can enable the military can do its job.

The Pentagon’s War on Religion « Coach is Right… “…the politically correct goons in the Department of defense are working to silence any opposition to the Gay Agenda. Military Chaplains are being silenced. (4) Soldiers are being taught to equate Christians with extremists and racists…”

With the repeal of the Clinton era “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy allowing gays to quietly serve in America’s armed forces, the politically correct goons in the Department of defense are working to silence any opposition to the Gay Agenda. Military Chaplains are being silenced. (4) Soldiers are being taught to equate Christians with extremists and racists who preach violence against non-believers. (2)

The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty sent a letter to the House Armed Services Committee warning that Military Chaplains are being threatened by higher brass to keep quiet about their opposition to Homosexual Marriages. The organization has pointed out that in some cases Chaplain’s military careers have been damaged and at least one man of the cloth was told to resign. Despite denial from a Pentagon Spokesman, the reality of Chaplains in the field proves otherwise. After all, the Commander in Chief opposes any freedom of religion protections for chaplains or troops. (5)

Bill Ayers is one strange guy.

 

Ayers was one of the founders of the radical 1960′s group the Weather Underground. His group was responsible for bombing the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol and a New York police station as a way of protesting American involvement in the Vietnam War.

 

He is also credited with launching the political career of President Barack Obama. They lived in the same neighborhood, their wives worked together, and Ayers hosted a fundraiser for a young Obama back in 1995.

When the Pentagon said earlier this year that it would open ground combat jobs to women, it was cast in terms of giving women equal opportunities in the workplace — the military workplace.

But the move has practical considerations, too. The military needs qualified people to fill its ranks, and it’s increasingly harder to find them among men.

Is Obama declaring war on U.S. military?

 

 

 

Obama has made no secret of his plans for deep military cuts that would downsize the Pentagon. In 2010, he cut $487 billion from the defense budget. In 2011, he signed into law a budget process intended to cut an additional $492 billion over 10 years.

THE GUNNY G WEBLOG @ NETWORK54.COM: NewsMax: McCain: Enemy of the POWs

March 9, 2013 Leave a comment

With the publication just two weeks ago of The New York Times best seller “An Enormous Crime: The Definitive Account of American POWs Abandoned in Southeast Asia,” it is inevitable that the role in the POW issue of Sen. — and former POW — John McCain now be examined.

 

McCain attended the Naval Academy at Annapolis.

Having known McCain since June 7, 1974, I have often written of his sarcastic, arrogant and condescending attitude toward those who disagree with him — on any issue.

 

His temper is legendary; his latest outburst was directed at fellow GOP Sen. John Cornyn of Texas over McCain’s immigration bill.

 

Everyone in D.C. and Arizona knows of the mean-spirited side of John McCain. But on no issue has John McCain been meaner than the question of the hundreds of U.S. POWs who did not come home in 1973 when McCain came home.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Decorated Vietnam veteran Chuck Hagel was sworn in as U.S. defense secretary on Wednesday after a bruising Senate confirmation battle, and promised to renew old U.S. alliances and forge new ones without attempting to “dictate” to the world.

 

Addressing Pentagon employees shortly after a small, closed-door swearing-in ceremony, Hagel spoke optimistically, if vaguely, about global challenges ahead and the importance of American leadership abroad.

SOMETHINGFAR WORSE THAN “OFFICIAL” COVER STORYYOUR IDENTITY WILL BE PROTECTED© 2013 MilitaryCorruption.com

First of all, we want to reiterate here that we at MilitaryCorruption.com were not among those who hated the late Chief of Naval Operations, ADM Jeremy Boorda or rejoiced at news of his death.

On the contrary, we respected him as a man, who like us, came “up from the ranks” as a Mustang officerWhile we never bought the “official story” that Boorda committed “suicide” over a couple of disputed attachments to his ribbons – the Navy’s ham-handed cover-up of the truth only made things worse they never learn – until now, we hadn’t got hard INTEL that might explain just why Boorda had to die.

All we can say for the moment is that a reliable source indicates it may have been so horrible that the only enlisted sailor to make CNO in Naval history, would have been ruined if the news had leaked out.

We realize even speculating on such a thing could be hurtful to his family. They have remained very quiet indeed about what really happened. You can’t blame them for not speaking to the media.

YOU CAN HELP US BREAK THIS STORY WIDE OPENThis website that went online July 4, 2000, gets up to six million hits a month and is read around the world.
