Human Guinea Pigs: Congress Slams Door On Pentagon Biochemical Weapons Testing Declassification

Human Guinea Pigs: Congress Slams Door On Pentagon Biochemical Weapons Testing Declassification:

In the 1960’s and 1970’s the US government tested chemical and biological weapons on US troops in still little known secret programs called Projects 112 and SHAD (Shipboard Hazard and Defense). The Vietnam era tests involved some 6,000 military personnel being subject to experiments involving deadly nerve agents like sarin and VX, as well as biological agents like E. Coli, all of which can result in quick death or potential lifelong debilitating health issues such as long-term central nervous system failure. A fatal dose of VX nerve agent, for example, can kill in minutes, but it is unknown if the program resulted in deaths because documents remain classified as “Top Secret” even 50 years later. Veterans advocacy groups have long tried to get specifics of the program declassified in the hopes that disclosure might allow victims of the tests access to health benefits and better medical treatment, but on Thursday Congress slammed the door on these attempts, leaving veterans and some congressional sponsors outraged.

Pentagon To Send 4,000 Troops To Afghanistan In Trump’s Largest Deployment Yet

Pentagon To Send 4,000 Troops To Afghanistan In Trump’s Largest Deployment Yet:

Two days after Trump ceded unilateral authority on Afghan troop deployments to the Department of Defense, the Pentagon wasted on time and according to AP, the Pentagon will send 4,000 additional American forces to Afghanistan to support existing forces and in hopes of breaking a stalemate in a war that has now been passed on to a third U.S. President. The deployment will be the largest of American manpower under Donald Trump’s young presidency.

According to AP, the decision by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis could be announced as early as next week, and was prompted by “the rising threat posed by Islamic State extremists, evidenced in a rash of deadly attacks in the capital city of Kabul, has only fueled calls for a stronger U.S. presence, as have several recent American combat deaths.” Asked for comment, a Pentagon spokesman, Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, said, “No decisions have been made.”

Pentagon to house ‘nuclear football’ in leased Trump Tower apartment – letter:

Defense department says use of private apartment for White House Military Office, which safeguards device holding launch codes, will not benefit president

The Pentagon is finalizing a lease on a privately owned apartment in Trump Tower for the use of the White House Military Office, according to a letter seen by Reuters.

$10 Trillion Missing From Pentagon And No One — Not Even the DoD — Knows Where It Is

Flashback:

Pentagon Cannot Account For 2,3 TRILLION Dollars (Video):

“The Day Before 9/11 Secretary Of Defense Donald Rumsfeld Declared That The Pentagon Cannot Account For $2,3 Trillion”


$10 Trillion Missing From Pentagon And No One — Not Even the DoD — Knows Where It Is:

Over a mere two decades, the Pentagon lost track of a mind-numbing $10 trillion — that’s trillion, with a fat, taxpayer-funded “T” — and no one, not even the Department of Defense, knows where it went or on what it was spent.

Even though audits of all federal agencies became mandatory in 1996, the Pentagon has apparently made itself an exception, and — fully 20 years later — stands obstinately orotund in never having complied.

Ron Paul Sums Up Nobel-Peace-Prize-Winning President Obama In One Short Sentence

Ron Paul Sums Up Nobel-Peace-Prize-Winning President Obama In One Short Sentence:

Following our discussion of the unprecedented bombing-fest that has been undertaken during President Obama’s reign…

Seven years after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” despite having been in office for less than one year and having pretty much no actual, tangible foreign diplomacy accomplishments at the time, President Obama will depart the White House having dropped 26,171 bombs on foreign countries around the world in 2016, 3,027 more than 2015.

Pentagon Buries Evidence of $125 Billion in Waste

Pentagon Buries Evidence of $125 Billion in Waste:

(ZHEThe Pentagon’s goal was simple, empower the Defense Business Board (DBB), a federal advisory panel of corporate executives, to retain consultants to identify potential cost savings in the Department of Defense’s $580 billion budget. But, when the DBB study revealed a “clear path to saving over $125 billion,” a level of waste which spoke to the egregious mismanagement and incompetence of DoD leaders, it was clear something had to be done to bury the story. Now, according to the Washington Post, that is exactly what happened.

The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget, according to interviews and confidential memos obtained by The Washington Post.

Shocking Government Report Finds $6.5 TRILLION In Taxpayer Funds “Unaccounted For”

Shocking Government Report Finds $6.5 Trillion In Taxpayer Funds “Unaccounted For”:

Last week, we first touched on a topic which, in any non-banana republic, would be a far greater scandal than what Ryan Lochte may or may not have been doing in a Rio bathroom: namely, government corruption, falsification and potential fraud and embezzlement, which has resulted in the Pentagon being unable to account for up to $8.5 trillion in taxpayer funding.

Today, Reuters follows up on this disturbing issue, and reveals that the Army’s finances are so jumbled it had to make trillions of dollars of improper accounting adjustments to create an illusion that its books are balanced. The Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a June report, said the Army made $2.8 trillion in wrongful adjustments to accounting entries in one quarter alone in 2015, and $6.5 trillion for the year. Yet the Army lacked receipts and invoices to support those numbers or simply made them up.

Staggering Corruption Reveals NATO/NASA ‘Lies’ At The Heart Of The Pentagon – The Pentagon Still Cannot Officially Account For Some $8 TRILLION-Plus In Spending

Staggering Corruption Reveals NATO/NASA ‘Lies’ At The Heart Of The Pentagon:

Via The Daily Bell,

Sailors And Marines Can Officially Declare They Are Transgenders This Fall  …  Before declaring transgender status, these service-members have to be at the start, in the middle of, or finished transitioning. Only then will they be able to ask for a formal gender switch in the database system, Navy Times reports. –Daily Caller

It is helpful for transgender people that the Pentagon now has a policy for them if they are in the service. In fact, it is surely a lingering and personal tragedy for those who feel they are the wrong sex.

But the bigger issue regarding the Pentagon is its immense and murderous corruption. In some sense, news like this is being promoted to distract us from the Pentagon’s ongoing problems.

The Pentagon still cannot officially account for some $8 trillion-plus in spending, according to a Department of Defense inspector general’s report released here at the end of July 2016.

Pentagon Chief Says “Boots On The Ground” Part Of “Accelerated” Strategy For ISIS Fight

Pentagon Chief Says “Boots On The Ground” Part Of “Accelerated” Strategy For ISIS Fight:

US Defense Secretary Ash Carter is a man who knows that actions speak far louder than words.

That’s why when Washington’s feud with China over the latter’s land reclamation efforts in the South China Sea reached a boiling point last year, Carter made a trip to the Pacific and had someone snap this picture of him riding in a helicopter with an aircraft carrier visible in the background.

All jokes aside, Carter is in somewhat of a tough spot. America’s disastrous foreign policy blunders in Ukraine, Syria, and Iraq and Washington’s bungled attempts to deal with an ascendant China, a resurgent Russia, and an Iran which is marking a triumphant return to the world stage, have left the defense chief with a laundry list of problems.

At the top of that list is ISIS.

Where Have All The Dollars Gone?

FYI.


Rothschild

Where Have All The Dollars Gone?:

Lobro and Arnold reflect on the vast wealth of the Jews and ask,  “Where have all the missing dollars gone?” I once asked economist Ellen Brown the same two questions asked by a commenter on this site a couple of days ago: (1) What percentage of the world’s wealth is in Jewish hands?  (2) What percentage of America’s wealth is in Jewish hands?  I don’t remember her exact words, but her response went something like this: “There are no figures giving these details; and if there were, they would be suppressed.”  (LD)

ARNOLD:  The Jews control all three branches of our government with bribes and blackmail. They control the media. They took over our government for one purpose alone: to control America and exploit it in the service of Israel and the Jewish people.

50% of the campaign contributions to the Democratic party comes from the Jewish lobby (40% for Republicans). Ten times as much money flows under the table in secret bribes and secret deals.

US Approved Weapons Sales To Saudi Arabia Three Days Before Executions:

The US empire’s alliance with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia continues to imperil any semblance of credibility the US tries to claim on the issue of human rights. On Saturday, January 2, Saudi Arabia executed 47 people, including non-violent pro-reform and pro-democracy protesters.

Three days prior to the executions, the Pentagon announced a series of multi-million dollar weapons contracts US companies had completed with Saudi Arabia that were approved by the Department of Defense. The beneficiaries of the large contracts are Boeing, Advanced Electronics and Raytheon.

15 News Stories from 2015 You Should Have Heard About But Probably Didn’t

cencored-news

15 News Stories from 2015 You Should Have Heard About But Probably Didn’t:

In 2015, the iron fist of power clamped down on humanity, from warfare to terrorism (I repeat myself) to surveillance, police brutality, and corporate hegemony. The environment was repeatedly decimated, the health of citizens was constantly put at risk, and the justice system and media alike were perverted to serve the interests of the powers that be.

However, while 2015 was discouraging for more reasons than most of us can count, many of the year’s most underreported stories evidence not only a widespread pattern that explicitly reveals the nature of power, but pushback from human beings worldwide on a path toward a better world.

 1. CISA Pushed Through the Senate, Effectively Clamping Down on Internet Freedom: For years, Congress has attempted to legalize corporate and state control of the internet. In 2011, they attempted to pass PIPA and SOPA, companion bills slammed by internet and tech companies and ultimately defeated after overwhelming public outcry. Then they passed  CISPA — which the president threatened to veto, having caught wind of the public’s opposition to heavy regulation of the internet (earlier this year, Obama reversed his position). However, corporate interests, like Hollywood’s studio monopoly, kept lawmakers’ tenacity afloat.

F-35, The Jet That Ate the Pentagon (Video)

 – F35, The Jet That Ate the Pentagon:

“We don’t know where all the money is going.”

The F-35 is the most expensive weapons program in history, with a total cost of $1.5 trillion, that has turned into a total fiasco.

So here is an 8-minute documentary (with some cool footage of the thing flying, landing vertically, etc.) to give you the willies about how the system works, and what’s wrong with it.

Note the term, “concurrent development.” It’s a key concept – and at the core of why this deal went haywire.

For more info about the documentary and its backers, to sign a petition, or get into the hair of your lawmakers about this, check out the site of the video.
