How to spend $1 trillion in the dark

Congressional lunatics on the march

Rand Paul: nobody read the $1.1 trillion bill before passing it

The House of Shadows

“Congressman, the American people are in an uproar. This is serious. I can’t begin to imagine what penalties you’re going to face. Possibly your ice cream after supper will be cancelled.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Congress just passed a $1.1 trillion budget bill. Here, from The Hill (“Paul: Nobody read the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill”), is what Senator Rand Paul has to say about it:

“It was over a trillion dollars, it [the bill] was all lumped together, 2,242 pages, nobody read it, so frankly my biggest complaint is that I have no idea what kind of things they stuck in the bill…We were given it yesterday or the day before the bill came forward, and so this is not a way to run government. It’s a part of the reason why government is broke.”

Paul went to say that no Democrat or Republican in the House or Senate read the bill before voting on it.

But of course the US federal government is not out of control. Perish the thought. The elected representatives are doing exactly what they’re supposed to do: spend money. It doesn’t matter where the money goes or how much of it there it is. These are minor points.

Borrow the money, tax the population in order to get it, invent it out of nothing—whatever it takes.

There is an obvious corollary here, which nobody talks about: if the crazed Congress can just flip a trillion bucks as if it were spare change, what guarantee is there that the money will go to the places where it’s designated?

You might recall that, in 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced the Pentagon was unable to account for $2.3 trillion of its budget:

“The technology revolution has transformed organizations across the private sector, but not ours, not fully, not yet. We are, as they say, tangled in our anchor chain. Our financial systems are decades old. According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions. We cannot share information from floor to floor in this building because it’s stored on dozens of technological systems that are inaccessible or incompatible…”

Consider that possibly $2 trillion has been spent, since 1966, on the war on poverty. Much of this money was earmarked to improve the standard of living in inner cities. How does that appear to have worked out? I find no evidence that the federal government has ever done a comprehensive investigation of where the money actually went or how it was used.

But don’t worry. Things are under control.

Want to contemplate the enormous sums the government has forked out in foreign aid over the past 30 years? Care to look for a detailed report on where all that money actually went and how it was used? Want to factor in all wars the US has fought during that period, and try to track those funds? Good luck.

If you couldn’t quite balance your yearly books and ended up with a hundred dollars you couldn’t account for, nobody would be upset. But if in the course of the past 30 years, you couldn’t show where 10 or 15 trillion dollars went, I assure you people wouldn’t just suspect you of incompetence. No. They’d be smelling grand, grand theft. And RICO crimes. Why wouldn’t they?

How about the recent agreements at the international climate summit in Paris? Richer nations have pledged billions to poorer nations as a kind of reparation “for destroying their way of life.” We’ll leave the merit of that idea for another time and another discussion, but exactly where will all this money go? Into whose bank accounts, over the next 20 years? Who are the signatories on those accounts?

Remember the federal bailout of 2008, in the wake of the financial meltdown? Here is a quote from Forbes (“The Fed’s $16 Trillion Bailouts Under-Reported”, 9/20/11):

“The media’s inscrutable brush-off of the Government Accounting Office’s recently released [superficial] audit of the Federal Reserve has raised many questions about the Fed’s goings-on since the financial crisis began in 2008… The findings verify that over $16 trillion was allocated to corporations and banks internationally, purportedly for ‘financial assistance’ during and after the 2008 fiscal crisis… However, the audit’s findings were almost completely overlooked, even with a number as high as $16 trillion staring all of us in the face.”

Sixteen trillion dollars. No problem. Just another exercise in spending, and that’s what the government does.

Show me the full and final and very specific accounting of what those bailed-out banks and corporations did with the $16 trillion. Just joking.

When people talk about massive black-budget operations taking place out of public view, others “refute” the possibility by asserting that government funds are closely monitored. Sure they are. And ants are piloting space ships to the edge of the space-time continuum.

Money is actually funny money, at the level of government and the Federal Reserve. Numbers concocted out of the void. In Location A, twelve seconds ago, there was nothing. Now there are 100 billion dollars. Easy as pie. Stage magic.

The sheer fakery of US Senators and Representatives voting for a bill that spurts a trillion dollars out of a spigot is matched and exceeded by the fakery of inventing the 1 trillion.

For this reason, and in the service of honesty, I recommend that some Senator or Representative stand up on the floor of his august chamber and say the following:

“Look, we don’t even know what the federal debt is. Face it. It could be anymore between 13 trillion and 210 trillion. Let’s admit we don’t care. Nor do we care how big a budget we vote for every year. And I think you’ll all agree, because the evidence is clear, we don’t care where we allocate the money. Goodness knows, nobody reads the budget bills. Are you catching my drift? Why do we spend time and energy arguing over the budget? Because we want to impart the impression that there’s a significant difference between our two political parties. However, there are easy and effortless ways to achieve this. For one week, every year, we could designate a time and place for budget debate. Three or four brain-addled representatives from each party would read opposing scripted arguments. And then we’re done. We all convene and vote in favor of the budget bill, as we always do. And we go home early for vacation. No fuss, no muss. Do you think anyone would object or take notice? I don’t…”

Oh wait. This is pretty much what’s happening now.

Given the predominance of funny money, in the not-too-distant future you’re going to be hearing serious people making serious arguments for basic government “citizen-control.”

The story-line will go something like this:

“If people want to keep receiving federal money, they have to conform to certain standards of behavior, speech, and thought. It’s a simple give and take.”

New sets of rules and regulations will apply to the population, in return for what is granted to them.

“Citizen Jones, I have your behavioral dossier in front of me. I want to discuss it with you. You’ve made a number of statements and committed a number of actions which could result in expulsion from the federal universal welfare plan. Do you realize what we’re giving you every month? Do you really think it’s wise to bite the hand that feeds you?”

“What are you talking about? That time I rode my Department of Commerce bike without a helmet?”

“No. I’m talking about the time you uttered a forbidden slur while you were watching a rerun of Friends.”

There is a principle that applies to funny money. It flows like water and it eventually finds its way into all the cracks. It’s used to promote compliance and obedience.

And then it stops being funny.

If you think this is an exaggeration, read up on the recent Australian law that makes childhood vaccinations mandatory. Families who refuse to have their children jabbed will be cut off from certain federal welfare programs. No jab, no funny money.

“Mr. Daddy and Mrs. Mommy, we invented a pile of money to help you survive. Did you think we’d never ask for a piece of your body, mind, and soul in return? That day has come. We’re here to collect. We own you. That was always the idea. Get it?”

How about banks who suddenly foreclose on homeowners who didn’t have a magnifying glass big enough to read the fine print in their mortgage contracts?

“Mr. and Mrs. Smith, we invented money so we could give you a home. Now we’re back to shut you down. Nothing’s forever. Get used to it.”

Consider thousands of colleges that exist on federal funds. Some professor at one of these “higher institutions” suddenly gets it in his head to make a corrosive and devastating critique of the government. Do you suppose the higher-ups at the college start quaking in their boots, as they envision possible consequences?

“Find a way to close out that crazy professor. Right away. What kind of racket does he think we’re running here? One of those ‘free-speech’ campuses? Show him we mean business. His salary is being paid with government funny money. Educate him. Make him see the light. Or toss him out on the street.”

Possibly you’ve heard of something called the military industrial complex. Government does some serious money-out-of-thin-air inventing to keep those defense corporations going. How can this Niagara of cash be justified without wars to fight?

“Of course we’re going to attack…what’s the name of that country again? Doesn’t matter. Get planes in the air. Put boots on the ground. How would it look if we kept doling out trillions of dollars for peace? Are you kidding?”

This is the sort of thing that’s happening whenever our august federal legislators get together and rubber-stamp a budget bill. They’re as dumb as wood, as corrupt as bankers, as venal as the mafia, as crazy as naked drunks running down the street in the rain.

The Matrix Revealed

The 1976 film, All the President’s Men, invoked the phrase, “Follow the money.” Thereafter, it became a popular guideline for investigative reporters. On one level it works, yes. But when you can’t follow the money, when nobody can, when you’re looking at governments who are inventing money all the time making deals with each other based on loans, debts, interest, default, and refinance, then you know you’re in The Deep. This is cosmic money. It begins as a blip in darkness, rises to a blinding glare, explodes, dies out, and then appears again in another quadrant of space. It makes quantum leaps and it entangles untold trillions and septillions and vigintillions.

It’s whatever-money. Whatever you need, however you need it, however you want to hide it.

Historically, bankers figured out the game. They didn’t have to be very smart. They just had to keep abstracting the idea of money, until it became a shadow.

Then they took up residence in the shadows.

    America received $4.4 trillion dollars in tax revenue. THEY are not broke – we are. The total amount of the ominous omnibus is $1.8 trillion dollars. Where will the $2.6 trillions disappear to and what will be their excuse this time? Every year, billions and billions of dollars are set aside in the budget for infrastructure. Yet, none of it has been spent on infrastructure. Where did that go? I’m just waiting to see the pork and pet projects, which will be a good clue for why those few who voted “nay” did so without reading it, unless their own pet projects weren’t included. They tell us there’s no money for border walls, yet spend $700,000 per illegal alien, after giving them $1,000 for entering America illegally. And don’t forget all those medical, dental, housing, food stamps, and other taxpaid benefits, some of the cost of which has been offset by reducing benefits to American citizens – single parents, children, seniors, disabled, veterans, etc. Sure, liberals are lunatics, but this criminal enterprise is a den of thieves. Members of congress have gotten even richer on insider trading. We don’t need to stinking political parties, as Madison warned us against. And I’m enraged at the economic servitude the transnational globalist, who run this country, have inflicted on us, with the advice and consent of one totalitarian administration after another. But obama’s takes the cake – it’s the last straw. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    • Eileen Kuch says:

      I agree with you 100%, Marlene .. it’s long time we fire the whole bunch, then charge them with grand theft and other RICO crimes.
      Insider trading is a felony, no matter who does it. If Martha Stewart could be prosecuted and imprisoned for insider trading, so can members of both the House and Senate. Nobody’s above the law .. not even the POTUS.
      Fire all those legislators who voted for this illegal bill and replace them with men and women with integrity and courage to do the right thing .. then, prosecute those who were fired in the same manner Martha Stewart was prosecuted, and give them even longer prison terms than she was given. These criminals must be made aware that We the People are in charge and are the Boss .. not the criminal legislators.

  3. Thomas Jameson says:

    Ha, ha, ha, and what I call myself no body will know, because I am Rumpelstiltskin. Yep our government is spinning straw into gold, (or at least fiat currency)….

    The last time our Congress pulled this crap was with ObamaCare, and we could barely swallow it then. What our Congress has done this time then becomes obviously criminal.

    Who then is GD well minding the store !!!

  4. From Québec says:

    Most politicians are stupid and a lot of them are corrupted. They are either lawyers or doctors. They know nothing about finance, nothing about how to run a company. If you can’t run a company, you cannot run a country.

    This is why, we need business men in governments. Brilliant men that were able to run a true successful company and have something to show for it.

    Trump is one of them. If Rand Paul was wiser, he would stop attacking Donald Trump. So, if Trump becomes the President, he could ask Rand Paul to be his Vice President.

    Both of them, with the help of Ron Paul, could get to audit the Fed and shut it down.
    That would be a great first step.

    How? Trump could nominate Judge Andrew Napolitano to the Supreme Court
    Then, they could bring all these thieves to court and jail them.

    Speaking of Trump, did you see yesterday article about him on infowars?
    It’s almost unbelievable how much it is stupid and how the GOP is going crazy.

    Believe it or not, here is the article:


    • From Québec says:

      Oh boy! It’s getting rougher by the day. They are really desperate.


    • Teresa says:

      In my opinion, Trump is just this season’s Obama. A “savior” in a different way, marketed to a different segment of the population than Brand O was.

      The corruption and deceit and downright evil is too deeply and widely rooted now to be voted on or out. That is asking the system to destroy itself. It’s not going to happen.

      • From Québec says:


      • From Québec says:

        Teresa, there is a big difference between Obama and Trump.

        The MSM was for Obama and the whole establishment was also for him. They pushed him into the presidency. He was hired to lie to people.
        Nobody knew anything about Obama, where he came from, what was his real religion, his real name, etc.

        Trump has the MSM and the whole establishment against him. He was not hired to lie, because he was not funded by them. Everybody knows where Trump comes from, what he did, who he is, what is is religion, how he got his money, etc.

        That should tell you something. Trump is his own man, and he will answer to no one but himself. He doesn’t want America to go down the tube. I believe he will do everything possible to bring back this country to be great again. He might not succeed, but he will try hard and give it his best shots,

  5. Bloody hell, Jon, if I’d have gotten to this earlier, I would have used it as a reference for my Christmas Cash post.

    Right on topic. Brilliant.

    Does the Gov know what they are spending money on? Have they seen the secret labs in the caves below? Have they heard the constant rumbling of the machines? I wonder how much it costs to run the engine. In the 5 years Ive known about the time travel experiments. Using nuclear powered fuel as well as combustion trains..How much money has it cost? Ive seen pictures of animals that were burned without recognition from possibly going to fast. The Tesla field of magnetic energy seems to control us. I wish it wasnt in secret, as the Tesla idea of copper communication towers instead of steel was a good idea. Science is expensive as fusion reactors may someday produce free energy, in 30 years. Is it worth the money? Im living in the pioneer days of science. Dinosours are the fossile fuels of the past, but why is it so painfull to just run the internet?
