JUST IN: President Trump And Mattis Uncovered Trillions Of Dollars Missing From Budget – Media Refuses To Report

.
The media left yet another milestone go by unnoticed. The monolithic military headquarters  are going to withstand an official inspection that will find out inexplicable sums of up to trillions of dollars missing. This is the first time the Pentagon is undergoing such a thing in their 74 year existence.

Zero Hedge says that Donald Rumsfeld, back in the day when he was the Defense Secretary in 2001, revealed  that according “to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions,” undertaken by the Pentagon.
ifteen years later, it seems as if nothing has changed, no improvement on the horizon. According to an Inspector General Report, now the Pentagon  aside from having money problems, they had an issue accounting for men as well.
In a different article Zero Hedge releases that “America’s world-wide military presence is such that the Pentagon itself can’t track how many US service members are deployed where. A new bombshell article in Stars and Stripes military newspaper is non-ironically headlined, ‘Report: 44,000 ‘unknown’ military personnel stationed around the world’.”
onald Trump approved 2,400 auditors from independent public accounting firms to investigate the Army, Navy, Air Force and more. He is planning on making this practice a annual thing.
Norquist, a former official at the Department of Homeland Security helped in this quest for auditing these agencies last year and  considers it “a matter of driving change inside a bureaucracy that may resist it.
That’s exactly what Pentagon did. Resist. Massive spending has been revealed since the 1980’s but the Department of Defense has always found ways to put audits off for political influence and advantageous opportunities.
Zero Hedge reports, the public quickly forgot the 2001 Rumsfeld revelation, after the terrible September 11th befall the nation the next day.
In “2015, the Pentagon denied trying to shelve a study detailing $125 billion in waste created by a bloated employee counts for noncombat related work such as human resources, finance, health care management and property management.”
After a year had passed, Franklin C. Spinney, a DOD analyst testified in front of Congress that the Department of Defense made a complete chaos in accounting with un-auditable books and budget projections that did not meet with reality.
In case it turns out that Pentagon has intentionally or non-intentionally lost track of trillions of dollars in a time when “our fighter jets are falling out of the sky”, there is no salary for our brave soldiers than the whole structure of the organization must be built all over again, straight from the ground.
President Trump, an outsider who practically self-financed his own political campaign, owes absolutely nothing to those using our government to cheat the taxpayers of America.
From resistcollectivism:
In fact Donald Trump was elected because he promised to put an end to this criminal activity.
Now, President Trump and Defense Secretary James Mattis have announced they will be conducting an audit of the Defense Department.
Decades of waste and overpayments have obscured trillions of dollars in missing and improperly accounted for taxpayer funds. Things are so bad at the Pentagon that they have lost track of 44,000 soldiers!
The audit will be a massive undertaking requiring 2,400 auditors. Trump has demanded that those 2,400 forensic accountants come from a spectrum of independent public accounting firms. In other words outsiders like he is. This means there will be little chance to sugarcoat the findings or to sweep shocking findings under the rug.
We’ve all known for a long time that malfeasance and corruption run rampant at every level of government. And, the bigger government gets the worse the malfeasance and corruption grows. For greedy big government politicians and their donors that is by design.
Tyler Durden writing for Zero Hedge provides a chronology for what triggered President Trump’s decision:
In the 80’s we were shocked by a “bombshell” report on overpayments the Pentagon made for simple items, such as $37 screws, $7,622 coffee makers, and $640 toilet seats. The amounts of those overpayments are so egregious that malfeasance could not be used as an excuse. It was just the beginning of massive fraud on a level that has grown to the point where it now threatens our entire economy.
Franklin C. Spinney was a civilian military analyst working at the Pentagon who charged the Pentagon with the reckless pursuit of complex and expensive weapons systems without regard for cost and those purchases led to massive budgetary shortfalls.
Spinney’s superiors tried to silence him but the Senate Budget Committee on Defense held a hearing on his report. The hearing was scheduled at a time and date so as to go unnoticed. Following a period of limited blowback the taxpayer fleecing began in earnest.
Durden recounted, “On September 10th, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced that “According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions,” after a Pentagon whistleblower set off a probe. A day later, the September 11th attacks happened and the accounting scandal was quickly forgotten.”
The feeding frenzy was exposed again in 2015 when the Pentagon was found to have spent $125 billion on bloated employee counts for noncombat related work such as human resources, finance, health care management and property management.
As we continually learn, corruption breeds corruption. And, the Pentagon was no exception.
“A DoD Inspector General’s report from 2016 – which appears to be unavailable on the DoD website (but fortunately WAS archived)- found that in 2015 alone a staggering $6.5 trillion in funds was unaccounted for out of the Army’s budget, with $2.8 trillion in “wrongful adjustments” occurring in just one quarter.”
The ramifications of all of this aren’t simply limited to the wasted taxpayer dollars by Pentagon officials, though that by itself that has been bad enough. The only objection to President Trump’s efforts to return that money to taxpayers is that it will add to the debt.
Seriously? The fact is they are simply trying to keep their gravy train going as long as possible.
When the full extent of the taxpayer defrauding is fully known – if it ever is – the American people will raise holy hell over the debt the establishment politicians and their corporate donors have burdened their children with.
