Entire Federal Budget Now National Security Secret – Dr. Mark Skidmore

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Michigan State Economics Professor Mark Skidmore made a stunning discovery late last year. Using publicly available government accounting reports, he revealed there was $21 trillion in what he calls “missing money” from the Department of Defense (DOD) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The data he used has been scrubbed, all accounting records are heavily redacted and now the federal government has declared its accounting falls under “national security.” Dr. Skidmore can no longer get the government to respond. Dr. Skidmore explains, “At this point, they are no longer responding to any of my inquiries. They are just not answering, and that is very astounding . . . and you can go on and look at the report yourself and see all of it blacked out. I actually lost sleep over that. That really bothered me. . . . Now, they are not even using standard accounting financial reporting rules. They are just moving things around and not telling anybody. So, first, all of this stuff is hidden because it is a national security issue, and now they are just changing the accounting standards. I would ask is that constitutional? I don’t think so. Does it match any of our financial reporting laws? I don’t think so. I am not sure what gives the government the authority to make that decision, and, yet, it’s happening.”

The revelation that there is an additional $21 trillion dollars that cannot be accounted for on top of the more than $21 trillion officially in federal debt is an astounding number. It is probably the most important data point since the Federal Reserve was founded in 1913. Dr. Skidmore says, “It’s a huge amount of money to not be able to explain, and they are not explaining it.”

Dr. Skidmore says there is a limit to money printing even when all the global central banks are doing it. Skidmore says, “What does it mean when a central bank is buying equities, or buying debt with printed money in order to suppress interest rates and keep this game going? I think, overall, the whole world is awash in debt, and it’s expanding at a rate that is unsustainable. The only way it has been sustained is that interest rates have been falling for 30 years. Now, interest rates are no longer falling, and we are running up against a constraint. Now, if this $21 trillion in ‘missing’ federal money really represents spending above and beyond what the official records indicate, then that has huge financial implications and huge implications for confidence in the dollar as the reserve currency. This is an enormous priority to address and not just cover up and say we are all good.”

In closing, Dr. Skidmore says, “How can you have a democracy if you don’t have any transparency whatsoever? Having integrity and confidence is so essential to the whole system, and this just puts everything in question. . . . We should clean this up and show we are legitimate. If we don’t, we are just shooting ourselves in the foot.”

    • Shadow of Doubt

      When government bureaucrats are given the green light to “cook the books” for the public. This is undeniable proof that; the little people are about to get another painful lesson in “Fleecing 101”. SOD

      • paul ...

        The little people should be able to counteract yet another “fleecing by the Deep State demon-rats and banksters” by stashing away even more precious metals … last week “a sea change in gold investor psychology occurred” which was very telling because gold rose as the stock-market was crashing … this is a “very strong signal” that instead of gold being dragged lower by a crashing stock-market the precious metal sector will “instead soar as stocks go down” … even though silver hasn’t reacted yet “have no fear” … it too will soon follow gold upward!!

      A school of thought exists that if the Demms assume House and Senate majorities in January, impeachment proceedings against Mr. Trump would begin soon thereafter.

      Some doubt as to US Border Patrol loyalty to rule of law and presidential executive orders. It seems to reason our Homeland Security secretary takes a leftist line.

      The short answer is that the border will open up to unrestricted entry and the border patrol will stand down completely. The only cure is a global financial collapse where even the new arrivals are on their own. In every sense of the word.

      Every. Just like you and me.

      If Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were concerned Democrat leaders, they would be preparing their rank and file to purchase gold and silver in physical form. Why would accept an entreaty to vote for candidates who favor higher taxes for bleep’s sake. Some Zero Hedge posters comprehend the tie in.

      As does Mr. Trump. Timing and independence from Treasury and Fed interference, he may openly endorse physical gold and silver as wise investments. Should his advice take grip, we may view sudden upticks in purchases and spot price. Some would term this return to fair value or honest price discovery. As would I.

      May not have an immediate effect on immigration flows, but fair market values may appear in stock and bond indices. Which is to say, a bubble is deflating, though not necessarily the entire bubble. A return to more fair value.

      No, the immigration flows could be subsumed into the question of how soft the president can self-engineer the landing-if he so chooses.

      Otherwise, ignorant, scared and debt-ridden US citizens are blindly navigating the contemporary economic landscape while about 3 percent are “prepping.”

      I can almost guarantee George Soros and Warren Buffett are highly long physical while orchestrating Fed policy to assure mass, human destruction of US society. That may or may not include illegal aliens. They may be allowed government sanctioned “special status.” A process developing as we speak.

      Hyperinflation is the means to an end which means a universal income and death to capitalism.

    Great interview Greg. I wonder how much they have ripped the people off over the last 100 years.

  3. Derek Sinclair

    Mark Skidmore is being very diplomatic here. If he is being prevented from accessing the additional data that would allow him to triangulate to confirm that the 21.5 trillion exists, then it stands to reason that the additional data would more than likely allow him to to do so. Or do we believe that all of this is simply to prevent him from finding a series of silly accounting errors that would show the money never existed in the first place?

    • paul ...

      A simple calculation shows that at the current gold price ($1200) one could buy 500,000 tons of gold with $21 trillion dollars … and they also needed to steal the messily 8000 tons of gold we had at Fort Knox in addition???

      • paul ...

        So the Deep State simply won’t allow an real audit of our US gold nor a real audit of our US budget for National Security reasons … how about we the people who own the gold and fund the budget remove the Deep State for National Security reasons!!

    Plausible deniability
    Plausible deniability is the ability of people to deny knowledge of or responsibility for any damnable actions committed by others in an organizational hierarchy because of a lack of evidence that can confirm their participation, even if they were personally involved in or at least willfully ignorant of the actions. In the case that illegal or otherwise disreputable and unpopular activities become public, high-ranking officials may deny any awareness of such acts to insulate themselves and shift blame onto the agents who carried out the acts, as they are confident that their doubters will be unable to prove otherwise. The lack of evidence to the contrary ostensibly makes the denial plausible, that is, credible, although sometimes it merely makes it unactionable. The term typically implies forethought, such as intentionally setting up the conditions to plausibly avoid responsibility for one’s actions or knowledge. In some organizations, legal doctrines such as command responsibility exist to hold major parties responsible for the actions of subordinates involved in heinous acts and nullify any legal protection that their denial of involvement would carry.
    Plausible deniability!
    A shadow government of the House of Saud and a shadow government of the American House of Representatives can be plausibly denied?

      Plausible deniability? I am not sure if you are including Dr. Skidmore. Apparently he asked to be interviewed, but spoke in third-person terms. He is educated. He can think. He can draw conclusions. Yet it was like pulling teeth to get him to say anything that was not milk toast. He even had the good sense to ingratiate himself with his establishment colleagues to gratuitously mention that spending money on gold is somehow depriving the country of needed investment. Say again? For every buyer there is a seller, no? But it helped establish himself as not a Greg Hunter kind of guy, since gold is the one thing he allows advertised on his site. Bravo Greg. Boo Dr. Skidmore. He provided reasonable information, but would have served his country better to do more analysis, and not just hide behind a statistical lack of perfection. Draw out the alternative scenarios and their implications, Professor. It might not help your career at Michigan State, but it might let you sleep better at night.

  5. Maria das Santos

    Thanks Mr Hunter and Dr Skidmore,unsurprisingly I am not an academic,for my sins I scrub floors here in London,and in the real world when money goes missing it normally ends up in the hands of sinners.If these were children then they would be buying sweets and candy,in the hands of adults they will be buying property and nice cars and nice holidays,you get the drift.Imagine the nice car dealerships there must be near the source of this money,oh wait,in Washington DC there seems to be a ton of nice car dealerships just within Washington DC never mind across the river to Langley!
    Perhaps,just perhaps,a lot of new technology has been brought to the fore which we are not allowed to see,for now.However,so many zombie companies are prowling our world perhaps it is in their hands or even worse perhaps in the hands of zombie countries like,oh i don’t know,the UK,France,Spain,Italy,Greece the entire EU most of Asia and India,really any country outside the USA.For we zombie morons outside the USA have borrowed,
    and if this article is even vaguely right we have borrowed like crazies in a drug zone.And we are talking Trillions US Dollars.Is this where some of it might have gone,if so what does it say about us outside the USA where money is fleeing to the safety of the USA?
    It did make me smile as Dr Skidmore in his dry manner pretended that the EU was NOT corrupt,the corruption within the ruling elite of the EU and UK is on steroids,where they use every weapon against those of us who vote wrong,money being their sharpest weapon.
    Another week in which our economy here in the UK sucks and Ruritania exists in Windsor.

      Did the Queen get a bit to nosey here? Like Trump you can only do so much for the people, yet their heart is in the right place! They are in their appointed places by God and for God and at the end it will all come out in the wash, that God was for us, we the sheeple!
      At Least 5 Things Scripture Teaches Us About Governments
      Government is one of the facts of life in this world. All of human history has shown that we need to be governed. Not surprisingly, the Bible speaks to government. Here are five things the Bible teaches us.

      Maria, God’s Kingdom is A Government With No Corruption
      “At the end of the day, public officials are still citizens and we are all a product of society.” So stated the chief auditor of Nicaragua when explaining why he felt that government corruption was impossible to eliminate.
      Would you not agree that if human society is corrupt, then any government that is a part of it will inevitably be corrupt? If that is the case, then a government free of corruption must come from outside human society. The Bible describes just such a government—God’s Kingdom, the government for which Jesus taught his followers to pray.—Matthew 6:9, 10.
      God’s Kingdom is a real government that rules from heaven. It will replace all human governments. (Psalm 2:8, 9; Revelation 16:14; 19:19-21) Among the blessings that the Kingdom will bring to mankind is the elimination of government corruption.
      Maria you can bank on that!

    • Bob Collinge

      Maria, the accrediting boards have their approved journals, almost all drily statistical. College administrators love to death grant money that allows them to do as they like, and it flows from deep sources that have a deep state agenda. Dr. Skidmore is measured on his grants and publications in the approved journals, that publish the research funded by the deep state grants. Dr. Skidmore’s stature and career prospects are dimmed by associations with such places as USA Watchdog. Maybe he can make up, emphasizing how much good progressive urban development work he does. Bringing up corruption in the EU or USSA would not further these apparatchik interests that so many find more important than courage of convictions. I weep for what once was academia and what once was America.

      Do these neocons think each and every American is going to graciously hand over $63,636 dollars of their hard earned money … to pay off the 21 trillion debt of all these “Deep State Crooks”?? … it they do … they have a screw loose in their butt heads … what we are going to do is use the RICO laws … and claw back every single cent they stole from us!

        Then with the money we claw back … we can refund Social Security and provide a “real” CPI that will keep pace with “true” inflation!!

  7. James

    Continuity of Government (COG) rules developed by Bush 1 and Oliver North could explain the government’s justification for changing rules and hiding data. The COG has the ability to suspend the Constitution and as Trump has affirmed, America is in a state of war and Trump has already declared a state of emergency. What this actually points to is America is in a serious crisis today.

    • Jennifer Ohman

      Don’t worry, Professor Skidmore was very careful, Old Kooka. He will NOT speculate!

      It appears he has been very methodical and logical in his research, data collection and analysis and has made some very shocking discoveries that he has shared with the world. He KNOWS what logical conclusion to draw from all of this…the $21 Trillion in missing funds that legally is supposed to be reported, redacted documents, refusal to supply information, taking the information off of the internet, the subsequent changing of the accounting standards for national security purposes, etc.! He knows. He shakes his head in agreement when Greg speculates, but he won’t officially speculate.

  15. NH Watcher

    I follow Q Anon’s posts now, controversial that they are. His reoccurring statement is: THINK LOGICALLY. No one does anymore. Emotions win out over logic more and more in daily conversations, and people simply give up. I find it ironic that many people think nothing of spending $1-2 per week on lottery tickets and never winning, but if you told them to go to their bank, withdraw $100, take it outside, and simply throw the $100 bill to the wind, they would think you are crazy. So the emotional high over the possibility of winning and the false notion of never having to worry about money again, negates the reality that what you are really doing over the course of a year is throwing a $100 bill out the window.

    Someone is keeping track of this money, rest assured, even if now hidden under the guise of national security. So, when it is revealed that the US government does not have any physical gold left to back this paper money up, what is left? Selling off the U.S. itself, piece by piece. Trump cannot be our savior; this is larger than any one man.

    We as Americans believe in fairness, but the world believes in fairness too, and all this debt simply means that the U.S. (technically) should be a third world country by now. That day is still coming.

    Behind the scenes, movement is being made to replace the dollar as reserve currency. Check out the most recent statement made by the IMF.

    Notice China is in the middle of the conversation, and not the U.S.?
    Ready to share debt? What does that mean? The answer I think can be found in the discussion you were having with Dr. Skidmore. Answer: The missing twenty one trillion has been placed into a global account that the IMF controls. Crazy talk? Convince me that the World Bank in Basil doesn’t control the international banking system and I’ll never say another word. As I have posted multiple times, follow the money. It leads straight to the Working Group and the RMB Trojan horse they’re installing in the American banking system.

    Go back and read the Grace Report that President Reagan produced
    during his administration. He found that the bulk of our tax money goes into an account controlled by the IMF. The Federal Reserve Bank? They’re owned by globalist. I hate burst everyone’s bubble, but America has been ransacked by the globalist. The pirates boarded the ship, and took everything but the pictures hanging on the wall. China? They’ve been groomed to be the new host by these blood suckers. Shared debt? Don’t you love it?

It’s a corpse living on life support. Period.

  19. Tea For One

    Thank you both, gentlemen.

    I personally think all world govts should basically stop everything they are doing and hocus-focus entirely on figuring a way to contain F Daiichi…… They (TEPCO) are pumping seawater on the reactors (well, where the reactors USED to be…. They melted straight down and out, disappearing… No one knows where they even are now) and spent fuel collection pools 24/7, hundreds of tons of which are running back off into the sea each day, containing significant radiation.

    Pacific marine life has been severely affected, another story for another time, and as all oceans connect, they will all be contaminated, in time. This has been something of a pet research project of mine since it happened. The officials at TEPCO, which owns the plant, came out publicly several years ago and announced the technology to contain it (it cannot be stopped), does not exist and probably will not exist “for at least 50-200 years”.

    BTW, Japan’s population had reduced significantly since March 2011.

    I woke up thinking…. “Well what about all the technology in the black ops projects, which is light years ahead of that in the public arena”……such as the public consumption project called NASA.

    Then i remembered, silly wabbit, they don’t want to spend money on helping anybody but themselves.. “Remember the missing $21T…”

    Oh yeah…

    So last year, MS found out there was, on top of our current National Debt, at least an ADDITIONAL missing $21T, and that’s just from TWO departments- Pentagram and HUD. Who knows how much more we’d find missing if one were to look at all the OTHER departments.

    The only thing about it, is that we CAN’T… after MS found this out and went public, They invoked the 1947 Natl Security Act and closed it all down. Now, nobody can get access to any of that kind of information.

    There are probably many times more missing money than that 21T.

    So, there IS money and probably the technology to contain it, yet I do not hear anyone in Washington screaming about this from the rooftops, like Paul Revere.

    This is an example of why I remain concerned about Mr. Trump and his administration. I maintain hope for the country’s and the world’s future with him but am more concerned about things like these above, which nobody seems to pay attention to, than even the economy.

  20. Alastair Carnegie

    Dr Skidmore made a very important point, sinking money into a bar of metal, is not a very productive use of currency. The “Crypto-Currency” revolution has a fatal flaw. It relies on electrons flying around electronic circuitry, that may or may not be secure?

    The Father of ‘Cryptography’ was arguably Claude Shannon, who help keep communications during World War Two secure. He proved conclusively that there is only one secure method. “The One Time Pad” system. This is best generated by a completely mechanical system. that can’t be hacked.

    I formerly worked for MI-8, and was responsible for Bank of England and The Fuji Bank and Bank of International Settlements communications. The Military insist that no financial transactions can be totally blind. OK available for inspection by well regulated due process. Permission granted by The Attorney General etc. From January 1st 1999, I have been Private Chaplain, and Internet Researcher for Merlin Hay, 24th Earl of Erroll. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s (Our Head of State) personal representative as a ‘Guest of The UK Parliament’ .

    The crisis began after George Soros played fast and loose back in 1987. He very nearly crashed The Bank of England. … This was the event that launched the World Wide Web. an extension of DARPANET, for which we owe a deep dept of gratitude to the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. On behalf of The R.M.P.T.A. (Royal Military Police Territorial Army Reserves) I had the honour to receive the Honorary Colonel In Chief’s First World Wide Web Transmission, via a British Telecom Satellite Link. July 15th 1990. This was arranged on December 21st at Glastonbury Town Hall 1989. BT’s preparations for the 1990 Pop Festival. Les Horribles Cernettes were the first Music File. Sir Tim-Berners-Lee’s Chums and Secretaries. … The blooming Zip File would not open on arrival. The Press suggested it was re-transmitted, as the Text message arrived well enough. “We can’t have a ‘Second” First Official Transmission…!!! Argued The BT Engineer! … A bit of Historical trivia.

    Needless to say Crypto-Currency has been proposed. “Steady Coins” verified by Claude Shannon’s ‘One Time Pad’ system. Generated by tiny stainless steel ball bearings, half magnetic & half non-magnetic in a rotating tumbler. First the ball bearings are held in place by magnet, the tumbler rotates and the non-magnetic ball bearings fall out. The holes allow light to expose a “Battenburg” (see sponge cake) Black & White Square onto a Photographic Film. …Next the Tumbler is filled with more non-magnetic ball bearings, and after that the Magnetic Ball Bearings are removed by magnet. The photographic film is again exposed with the “Battenburg” square but this time the screen is shifted one square unit, equivalent to a 180 degree rotation. This is a Unique One Time Pad. and incorporated into a window on a plastic point of sale card. A number appears which must be entered to complete the sale. That section of the window is never used again. Eventually the card will be exhausted. A new one delivered. It may work with Gold Vending Machines as well?

    The Point of Steady-Coin (Now at The Peer-Review Stage) is that it has the advantage of Crypto-Currency Block-Chain Distributed Ledger. Even if the Gold has not yet been mined, you know where it is. I have mentions that our Family Company The Chartered Company of South Africa Merged with Oppenheimer to form Anglo-American . We are not amateurs at this mineral extraction business either. Ecology and sustainability has been the name of the game for some time now. The best science available must be deployed! The Spare Computer from Manchester Airport, was used for a global Bio-Diversity Audit. early 1990’s (the old one was being upgraded, so the emergency spare became available.)

      Sounds like to me Al, as the closest way you can have as in your possession, though not. Whilst still having a means of having it available for transacting transactions, on a worldwide bases? Much more safe and secure as in your possession, per say. Not just, as you say, electrons flying around electronic circuitry! That may or may not be secure?

    • Jennifer Ohman

      Referring back to your 1st sentence, “Dr. Skidmore made a very important point, sinking money into a bar of metal, is not a very productive use of currency.” What Dr. Skidmore said was, when you loose confidence and buy gold, it is not being used for productive purposes.

      You should realize that a bar of gold is real money. For Savers, one of the most PRODUCTIVE purchases that they can make with their fiat currency is to “sink” it into real money, ie, gold.

      It is true that gold is not productive for a banking system that is completely dependent on confidence in order to promulgate its fractional reserve banking system. But, the fact is that in no way does gold impede productivity…any more than cash is considered to not impede productivity! Actually, it is not cash that is king. It is Gold that is King! It is real money! At anytime, and in any moment, for those who holds gold (money), if and when they choose to buy anything that they wish to consume, they can do so. The economy does not stop when this real money is used! On the contrary, the economy would be consistently more sound, safe, stable, and productive if this real money was once again in circulation.

    I think it’s safe to say there will be no arrest until after the elections and this meeting. More inside info?

    • kevin

      That’s funny. Just a month or so ago you stated that there will be no elections as if it was a fact. Now you are back tracking (again) just like you always do when you are wrong. Well I think it is safe to say that you nor anyone else really knows for sure what is going on in the world.

  22. al

    Frankly Dr. Skidmore’s retracted, polished and robotic responses tell me that he is not the man for the job of disclosure. The very fact that he quickly blew by the fact that Central Banks have been buying stocks to keep the World stock markets from falling was very telling. He just skidded by that statement.

    I applaud his efforts but his responses resonated with a European Technocratic tone.

    With all due respect to Dr. Skidmore, NO… not everyone will be shocked when the news of this missing money hits the mainstream.
    I’m not a PHD Economist but the evidence was clear for decades! The obvious lack of transparency and accountability in this Country started back in the Clinton admin, with the Bush / Chaney and Obama admin making it worse as time went on!

    It’s ok Dr. Skidmore, you can be human, if someone lies don’t call it a slight omission of fact, call it what it is, a blatant lie! Extortion is bad too, you can say that. It’s ok, we’re still somewhat free to speak out. Your lack of passion troubles me.

    It was hard listening to this man speak Greg.

    • Dan

      Yes Al…bullseye.

      It’s called TREASON.

      TREASON AGAINST THE US CONSTITUTION…and by extension, all of US….The MORONS who pay our taxes, behave and abide by the laws, and are stupid enough to actually believe that electing high paid lobbyist whores from either party has helped any of us over the last 50+ years. It has not.

      $21 Trillon Missing ?


    • Jennifer Ohman

      al, Dr. Skidmore is a University Professor…a University that takes funding from the government.

      He knows the conclusions that should be logically deduced about the government. He expressed worries about lawlessness and loosing sleep over his discoveries. But he “wants to be fair”, non-judgmental and not criticize… for what I believe are obvious reasons.

  23. Mohammad

    Dr. Skidmore, may be it is someone else shooting our self in the foot.

    Besides the obvious (space program) How much money do you think (real dollars) will take to keep the gold at 1200$ and silver at 14$ with billions of paper ounces dumped daily on comex and settled in CASH…DAILY…since 1970s when Nixon departed the gold standard….Do the math and there is your missing trillions.
    And don’t you Dr. think for a second that the gold valuation is the utmost NATIONAL SECURITY since it decides the fate of the dollar…?


    • Tin foil hat

      The dollar system makes its own rules and all markets and economies across the world must follow them. As such, not only the COMEX is rigged, the international monetary and financial system is indeed systemically fraudulent. Exchange rates, interest rates, commodity prices, stock prices – all are subject to the massive creation of absurd derivative positions which cannot exist without unlimited dark money.
      The money used to suppress gold and silver price is merely a drop in the bucket.

  24. arthur barnes

    Greg, we haven’t had transparency in our Government in I don’t know how long. Think about their employment numbers, not to mention their inflation numbers, & now Yale just did a study of illegal aliens in the country at twice the Government’s numbers & the list goes on. Your guest’s 21 trillion missing theory is not at all surprising, nor is the Government now making such things national security thereby not allowing for public scrutiny; ITS JUST MORE OF THE SAME O’ SAME O as we march along merry as we go singing the songs of fascism.

    • Roger D

      Arthur Barnes is right. Most folks are too young to remember what we have lost.

      The South fell but at least they fought. Our liberties have fallen to the same evil tyrant. But we are now witnessing Lincoln’s tyrannical republic devolving into a democratic lynch mob. Jesus said, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation.” Matthew 12:25 (KJV). Lincoln’s republic is going down.

      Reality is that all republics have short lives. Get over it. Patriots, stop clinging to fascist Republicans who want to control everything and a system intent on destroying us.

      It is time to think NEW REPUBLICS. Remember Republics? Hell, do you remember thinking?

  25. David Bowers

    This 21 trillion would have originated at the Fed. I wonder how the interest on this principal is being accounted for. A Fed audit might reveal the answer. Further, if the government gets to reset and wipe away trillions of dollars it seems to me they will likely also wipe away unsecured personal debt (eg student loans) at the same time to have a clean restart. Otherwise, there are going to be very unhappy voters. A great interview Greg. Dave

    Greg,I would like this interview to be seen by all of the people and pundits who ask taxpayers the following question: Did you pay your fair share? After all,how is the government supposed to run the country if we don’t pay our “fair share?” I would like to ask these same people why should I pay my “fair share” when I never get my “fair share?”

    We the People vs. the Swamp – Patricia Muth
    By Greg Hunter On October 15, 2017 In Politics 185 Comments
    By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    A must see even more so now, author Patricia Muth says the two-party system is not what you think it is in today’s political landscape. It’s not Republican vs. Democrat, but “We the People” vs. “the Swamp.” Muth explains, “We don’t have a two-party system in this country. We have a one-party system in Congress, and that’s the establishment. What the people want is not in the minds of the establishment, and you can see that happening all over. Somehow, along the way, Congress forgot they work for us. The Senate certainly doesn’t believe they work for us. Do you think that (Senator) Bob Corker could have a rally, plan it in four days and bring 20,000 or 30,000 people there? Donald Trump can, and Donald Trump can actually be the spokesman for the American people. The people want the agenda that Trump is putting forward, and the Congress and Senate does not want to go along with it. Many in the establishment will be unelected in the 2018 election.”
    Muth recently wrote a book [last year now] on the Ross Perot Movement of the early 1990’s. It’s called “A Title in the Making.” The outrage over the establishment back then is more intensified than ever. The book basically asks the question: “Where do we go from here?” Both parties are taking a hit right now. Muth explains, “The Democrat Party is in trouble, really, really big trouble, and so is the Republican Party.

    Well were here folks and Patricia knew her stuff when Greg interviewed her and now that her thoughts are coming to floriation, with the soon to begotten mid-terms, we shall soon see how right she was and is especially now!

  31. Mike

    Since printing money to “pay the bills” has become normalized, a budget means absolutely nothing and missing money also means nothing. The purpose of the government has devolved into growing more government so it is up to individuals to protect themselves in the currency crisis to come. We can only hope that fiscal sanity will rise from the ashes of our own complacency.


  32. Tad

    Forty-two trillion is just a warmup. While I’m not very familiar with derivatives, I envision a scenario where US Treasury interest rates gradually increase to points where investors have taken their profit in trades vis-a-vis banks and the only expectation is a bank bailout from either the questionable $21 trillion “fund,” or an immediate Fed digital printout of a few quadrillions in hard earned money.

    This would be one aspect of 10- and 30- year bonds trading in a tight range. The other deals with massive flows from debt exchanges to equity markets which have lately roiled the DJIA.

    What can you tell people about the necessity of prepping?

  33. iwitness02

    It’s a national security issue so I can’t answer that question. I despise that answer more than anything else that I hear. Government criminals hide behind that curtain, and lie their way out of countless crimes. It works and they employ it continually. The perfect cover for endless criminal activity. I hate the fact that our government holds us in such contempt. This is not good for my blood pressure, so I will stop here.

  35. Hank Mayweather

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I love each and everyone of the articles and writers especially you Greg. Perhaps I am just old and educated in a different era but the proposed and actual government of the United States of America was and is a REPUBLIC. Not a democracy. I may be the only person who cares but one of the problems in this country, it seems, is that none of the younger generation of writers and a majority of the old know the difference between a democracy and a republic or even care.
    Each time some commentator calls this a democracy they have lied and cause others to believe a lie. Ben Franklin when asked what type of government they provided stated, and I’m loosely quoting here, ‘a republic if you can keep it’.
    Please quit using words out of habit and begin being truthful, the younger generation needs the truth. Democracy is mob-ocracy, mob rule, which is where we are headed. One of the great coups of the commies was to convince so many of our educated people that the majority should rule. Just how would you like it if the leadership of Chicago, NY, LA or Portland was to run the entire county because they have more people? That is democracy is action and this is where we will end up when educated writers don’t know that this is a republic. Dr. Skidmore transparency doesn’t matter when the majority rules, no need for senators, congressmen or a constitution. Let the mob decide what they like and don’t like, what a wonderful form of government for the lawless.

    If it’s $21 Trillion, this probably goes back decades since at least the Nixon days and maybe further than that. Hard to blame any particular administration or Fed board although they all share the blame.

    One thing is for sure, all published government spending and national debt numbers are fake (though we knew that a while ago).

    • Pablo

      If you get a chance to have him on again, question for him:

      Where are the other Econ professors in other colleges? Is he getting any other support by his colleagues at other universities? or are they too afraid to stand with him?

      Just think about how much that money would buy in infrastructure…. no more Flint, MI like lead tainted/polluted water anywhere in the country. super fast internet, high speed coast to coast and internal transportation systems, modern airports, bridges and tunnels that aren’t near collapse, safer more up to date nuclear facilities and power grid to withstand an EMP.

      Nice thought that they might have been using that $$ buying back all the gold they sold before, but kind of doubt that…

  37. WKSwanson

    As a funny aside, a psychology professor I had once told me when I called him “Dr.” -as in PhD, -“I prefer to be called professor…anybody can be a PhD, but very few can be a full professor at a major university.” I think of Dr. Skidmore as Professor Skidmore.

  38. andyb

    Greg: I think we all know where the 2.3 trillion (Rumsfeld), the 21 trillion, and God knows what else has gone. CIA black ops, corruption of politicians (not only here but globally), and depopulation activities (geoengineering, wars, etc etc). In addition, I would not be surprised if certain search engines and media outlets like Google and ATT&T have been secretly purchased by the Deep State to mold opinion and suppress dissent. The misdirection and takedown of so many conservative sites is telling. Independent outlets, in their quest for clicks and ad revenue should care less about political ideology; what difference does it make. That these media sites eschew revenue from conservative sites (many with millions of viewers) indicates that the agenda is not a profit making one.

  39. Jason

    If the 21 trillion is real money, what was it spent on? There must to be a lot of stuff or people (banks) sitting on enormous amounts of money. Maybe it was spent to bail out the global financial system or to zero out the quadrillion+ in derivatives. Also have you heard of “InsigniaGate” where the number of dollars has 54 zeros.

  40. Tad


    Way off topic, where one gets the impression Senator Hirono would rather have women keep their mouths shut.

  41. Robert Happek

    If it is really true that 21 trillion Dollars were spent outside the regular accounting by congress and the treasury, then the public finances must be indeed in total chaos. If that is the case, then it is perhaps better if all accounting on these matters be kept secret for national security reasons. The trust in the US Dollar must be maintained at any cost in the interest of the people and in the interest of the world economy. Too much is at stake.
    I am in favor of keeping all these matters secret until the system is ready for a reset.

    • paul ...

      If the Deep State wants to maintain trust in the US dollar they should buy 8000 tons of gold with their stolen money and put it back into Fort Knox … a simple calculation shows that the Deep State can buy 8000 tons of gold at a gold price of $8,125 dollars per ounce with their stolen $21 trillion dollars!!

      • paul ...

        On recalculating it is more like $81,250 dollars per ounce (more in line with Jim Sinclair rather then Jim Rickards)!!

  42. Mohammad


    Very big events are taking place in the M.E. that will have a monumental implications on the economy of the world and more on the dollar itself.

    What did not make it to local news media nor to your wrap up was the case of the missing Saudi Journalist in the Saudi embassy in Turkey.

    Trump had said something when he was asked and said there will be significant actions but shy from cancelling the arm deals with S.A. if the allegations are proven to be right.

    Sen. Graham and Senators from the Foreign council made it further that the sanctions against Saudi Arabia are going to be very tough where it may threatens the crown in SA.

    EU is following suit in their threats to SA from Macron of France to Britain to Germany so on so forth.

    The case is still vague where the journalist Khashoggi entered his country’s council for some paperwork and never came out, some leaks in the Turkey media hint to recordings of torture that took place inside after a team of 15 Saudi interrogators went in coming in two private plane, some gruesome leaks about cutting his body inside and putting it in separate bags were also leaked in the Turkish media but no factual confirmation as of yet.

    The escalation today in the position of Saudi Arabia was in announcing a stronger answer to any sanctions that could be imposed by the west and some of those answers may include BUILDING A RUSSIAN BASE in the northern part of SA and eventually moving SA from the US umbrella to the Russian umbrella…If this materializes one can only imagine the implications on the US dollar and the whole world’s current order.


    “There are simple procedures, that are part of over 30 others, that Riyadh will implement directly, without flinching an eye if sanctions are imposed.”

    “Imposing any type of sanctions on Saudi Arabia by the West will cause the kingdom to resort to other options, US President Donald Trump had said a few days ago, and that Russia and China are ready to fulfill Riyadh’s military needs among others. No one can deny that repercussions of these sanctions will include a Russian military base in Tabuk, northwest of Saudi Arabia, in the heated four corners of Syria, Israel, Lebanon and Iraq.”

    Al-Arabiya is the media outlet that is considered the vent of SA gov. and royal family.

    Very serious events are unfolding in the M.E. that will have repercussions allover the world…Very interesting indeed.


  43. William Stanley

    Mr. Hunter,
    The depth and breadth of the secrecy is crazy and now, apparently, nearly total. Permanent war as an excuse for actual or potential totalitarianism.
    The war(s) are not even constitutionally declared by Congress, but that’s okay because the intelligence services of foreign governments — like UK, Israel, and Saudi Arabia — “cooperate” in our elections (and false flag events) to try — and often succeed — in determining who is President and in Congress and, therefore, what our policies are (just as our government and intelligence services do all around the world).
    How many of us know why “we” really are in Syria or Afghanistan? Meanwhile, Google and other tech companies are so integrated with our (and other) intelligence services that it’s hard to tell where one begins and the other ends. Is China part of Google or is it vice versa? Or are both subsidiaries of the central banks who, in turn, are subsidiaries of the Rothschilds and the Payseurs? Or have the intelligence agencies broken their chains and are now in charge even of the Rothschilds and the Payseurs? Is all politics and geopolitics now simply rivalry between various factions and coalitions within the elite banking/military/industrial/intelligence communities?
    Yes and no. Trump is still President. And we are rolling back all of it.

    • William Stanley

      I think we need to distinguish between a STOCK of money and a FLOW of money. By way of analogy, a gallon is a stock; gallons per minute is a flow.
      My guess is that there never was anywhere near a stock of $21 Trillion that was created and spent in some secret way. Moreover, there isn’t necessarily any “missing” stock of money, even if some of the $21T was stolen or otherwise diverted. We just don’t know in who’s bank account it now resides.
      To the extent that some of the $21T was created (presumably by the Fed) and became part of the stock of money, it would still be sitting in a bank account somewhere, because unlike money that is lent into existence, money that is simply created without an offsetting debt, is never extinguished via loan repayments. Yet the current overall stock of dollars (in the US) is less than $21 Trillion. And, surely, not all of that was clandestinely created. Indeed, we can point to $Trillions that we know were created via loans that are yet to be repaid.
      Thus, IMO, most of Dr. Skidmore’s $21 Trillion is a flow of sham transactions that reflects the flow of some much lesser stock of money that was created by the Fed and then was circularly sloshed around the government bureaucracy as it was being laundered to hide its origin and destinations.

      • William Stanley

        re: “still sitting in a bank account somewhere”
        I didn’t mean to imply that the money never became part of a chain of transactions, only that money is always in the possession of someone (with the possible exception of “float”) and, since this money was presumably not paper bills, it like most money, is in a bank account. (however, that does not imply that it is recoverable, since the chain of transactions has long since spread across the entire economy).

      • Hockey Puck

        This is an incredibly profound insight, William, and needs to see the light of day. I, for one, have been guilty of thinking of the $21T as a stock. But you are right. It could very easily be a flow. Where would the money come from? It would not, if I understand you correctly, require an independent funding transaction from the Fed. It could simply come out the $1.1T annual budget appropriated to the military, portions of which could move from department to department in what you call “sham transactions” (a kind of money laundering, I suppose)… to end up where… we don’t know where. Maybe it’s propping up the stock market, maybe it’s in some bond portfolio, expensed on some secret weapons program, somebody’s personal piggy bank–who knows?

        In conclusion, your insight lends added credibility to Mark Skikdmore’s conservative and scholarly approach to this whole mess. Mr. Skidmore has been criticized in a few posts, right here in this forum, unjustifiably. When you don’t know what something is, the shrewd thing to do is ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. That’s what Mr. Skidmore is doing.

        As for we, the little people, we need to be more rigorous in our analysis of what we are being said and that includes me. Thanks for this insight, William. It’s a real contribution to advance our knowledge of what might really be happening.

    • Hockey Puck

      Hi William. The questions you pose are the cutting-edge questions of our time… Oct 2018.! Thank you! This is where the inquiry needs to be… unraveling the questions that you pose. As for myself, I find that that the arguments put forth by Paul Craig Roberts are still all too persuasive, that the military industrial complex is still firmly in control and nothing is about to threaten it. When you have a 1.1 trillion dollar budget… that’s a lot of power. And who is there to threaten it? Seriously! See: https://www.opednews.com/Podcast/Paul-Craig-Roberts-Former-by-Rob-Kall-Assange_Democrats_Democrats-DNC_Economics-180808-527.html

      So I hope you are right! My question then is what do you mean by “… we are rolling back all of it”? Do you mean that “we the people” are becoming more aware, or do you mean that the evil creatures who inhabit the swamp are on their way to jail?

      • William Stanley

        Hockey Puck,
        Thanks for the link to the Dr. Roberts interview! It was very powerful. Dr. Roberts is one of my favorite public intellectuals and pundits, too.
        I agree with you that Dr. Roberts correctly points out how the citizenry has been divided against itself, thus weakening it. However, either Trump is smarter than he is given credit, or he is incredibly lucky that the breadth and nature of the plot against him is being uncovered, thereby lending him the support of a large portion of the citizenry.
        I also think Dr. Roberts glosses over the possibility — I think likelihood — that the elites of the banking/military/industrial/security establishment can form factions and fight amongst themselves for dominance. Thus, weakening them. Moreover, I think there are some wealthy individuals who are patriots and will work with liberty-minded persons within the military, intelligence services, and high-tech industries to boot-up alternative platforms to keep the flame of truth burning.
        When I said “we” are rolling it all back, I meant to imply that Trump, as supported by millions of people who have had their eyes opened as well as by benign forces within government, will defeat the coup attempt against him. Moreover, in the process of doing that, so much will be revealed and disseminated, that the entire elite edifice will be shattered. Yes, I agree that Trump has many faults and weaknesses. However, the curtain has been pulled back to some extent, and our enemies have been revealed to be, IMO, far more incompetent and fragile than we ever imagined.

        • Hockey Puck

          William, Thanks for pointing out the weakness in Dr. Roberts’ arguments. It’s very useful to look at all sides of the story. Hoo-Hah Trump! The upcoming months will be quite something to watch… hopefully.

          The real issue is this one here being championed by Alex Jones: Nationalize the Fed! Anything less than this is just theater to confuse “We, the people”… and there’s a lot of theater these days… like 99.9999%! Thank God we have this forum. https://www.infowars.com/trump-to-make-plan-to-nationalize-federal-reserve/

    • Tad

      I don’t know to what extent this will be rolled back. Rumors of property and bank deposit confiscation means little during a global financial collapse when assets do likewise. In an optimistic world, if the uber-wealthy are left relatively high and dry, then perhaps rule of law does or will exist.

      • William Stanley

        If you are saying that civilizational collapse is a possibility, I agree with you.
        If you are asserting that the uber-wealthy would be relatively less damaged by civilizational collapse, I’m not sure whether I would agree or disagree. Power, I think, flows from networks of people. Yet, the essence of civilizational collapse is the destruction of functioning networks that underlie the flow of commerce which is supported by the superstructure of rule of law.
        If you are asserting, that rule of law requires an uber-wealthy elite, I think I disagree. My sense is that much more transparency is possible, even likely, and that if it emerges it will change “the game.” However, I have to admit that, given history, the burden of that argument should fall upon me, not you.

  44. Bill

    what budget Skidmore, we have not had a congressional budget in over eight years, under the Negroes administration, so what the hell, are you talking about , You fool. Trump is to transparent for my liking and the demonrats are always hiding important things from the public view, go back to where you came from you moron. all the demonrats did was pass continuing resolutions which are not budgets, they are open checkbooks and stealing tax payer funds. get the hell out of here Skidmore, you dummy Marxist commie.

    Are these missing trillions actually “expenditures” , or are government officials siphoning money out of the pockets of Americans and putting it in their own pockets? There could be a lot of people in on this scheme.

  49. John Henry Stone

    I have followed the story of the missing money since you first exposed it to your readers. A crime (if it is one) of this magnitude is staggering. The fact that “they” are ignoring it or trying to hide it is horrendous. The thought that the masses of the people know little and care less about this situation should be keeping all of us awake at night. The knowledge that they can find out my real name makes me very reluctant to respond to this information in this manner. Maybe it is time that we “water the tree of liberty”. This Patriot stands ready to do my part. God have mercy on all of us.

  50. Tin foil hat

    I disagree with Dr. Skidmore regarding money spend on gold is not being used for productive purposes. I would say more than 90% of the money flowing in the current economy are not being used for productive (R&Ds, manufacturing, infrastructures ….) purposes.
    The markets no longer need the money from average investors like us to juice or prop up the markets. Central banks (JCB, SNB and Fed via ESF) are printing money and buying bonds and stocks like Dr. Skidmore stated in the interview, trying to convince the world that the voodoo economic model back by debts and derivatives can function indefinitely. I believe the efforts are comparable to a scene in the Wizard of Oz – Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.


    Average investors need to save some of the money in gold for the post smoke and mirrors economy instead of throwing all of their savings to the man behind the curtain. I don’t know why Dr. Skidmore believes the current monetary system can continue and all the debts, including China, EU, Japan and ours with the exception of Russia, can be repaid.

    Money spend on gold is not being used for productive purposes, it’s used or saved to restart a real productive economy.

    • William Stanley

      I agree that fiat money spent on gold is not crowding out investments in farms, factories, and other productive enterprises.
      I would add, that fiat money spent on above-ground gold is just switching owners and the recipients of the fiat money can, in turn, use it to fund “productive” ventures if they so choose.
      Moreover, to the extent that people start to value gold relatively more highly than fiat as a store of value, future productivity will probably be enhanced because that will cushion the coming crash and reset, and enable a more rapid reboot of economic activity.

      • Tin foil hat

        William Stanley,
        Exactly, fiat money spent on gold is not crowding out anything. The ownerships were transferred and mostly sitting in brokerage accounts, real estates, bonds …… which can evaporate into thin air if the fiat stop flowing. It’s almost like if blood stopped flowing, it would clog up the whole system. Hence, the dark oney is like aspirin to keep the blood thin. The $21 trillions is the helicopter money already spent to keep the system going or trillions of derivatives from coagulating.

      • Tin foil hat

        The $21 trillion aspirin will eventually turn into cholesterol or assets. The cholesterol bubble will get bigger and require a bigger dose of aspirin or helicopter money to keep things going again and again ……..

    If the Deep State banks were to allow the truth about what is happening to our money come out right now, it would upset their timeline. They have a plan to destroy this country, and right now they are trying to keep it all propped up. They are waiting for the perfect time to blame it all on Trump. But, of course, this has been building up for years and years. Catherine also has an interview about how the Rockefellers want to have us all chipped. And, they need an excuse to do that—a failed monetary system. These bankers need people to think they understand an explanation for all of this. But, it’s quite a complicated plan that’s been going on for years. Only those few Americans who have the desire to look a little deeper, might even have an idea of what is happening. And nowadays, it’s hard to see who cares. People are afraid to care and afraid to discuss. It will HAVE to get worse before people finally decide to get in there and start digging and doing something.

    Clearly the govt either can’t explain the missing $ or they can but to do so would expose their own criminality on a massive scale. THAT would be a matter of “ national security”.

  60. Hockey Puck

    Another historic interview Greg! Awesome work! Thank you… and deeply disturbing!

    The insight that most readily comes to mind is something I heard from Alex Jones. He was quoting President Trump, where apparently Mr. Trump drew a distinction between thinking deeply about things and thinking shallow… an amazing insight truly. What Mr. Trump ostensibly said was that he used to think deeply about things but he noticed that it was only when he started thinking shallow that he started to really succeed in business. Wow!

    What does this mean? It means that we’ve got to trust our gut! I truly appreciate Dr. Skidmore’s honesty and intellectual rigor in seeking the truth! It is the hallmark of a true scientist. But let’s all step back for a second and ask ourselves, “What are we being told here?”. This is not the crime of the century, nor the crime of the millennium. It is the crime of all time. It makes Al Capone look like an innocent child quietly eating his lunch in the schoolyard.

    Who could pull off such a crime? There’s only one answer. The words of President Eisenhower in 1962 (over 50 years ago) say it all, “Beware of the military-industrial complex”. The problem we face is the mumbo jumbo soup we’ve gotten used to with seemingly different entities, a divide and conquer strategy used to confuse the mind: deep state, shadow government, oligarchs, banksters, MSM, the corporatocracy, Council on Foreign Relations, military-industrial complex… etc. etc. In reality, all these entities are all ultimately one, the banking cartel, the creature from Jekyll Island, that has controlled the Federal Reserve since 1913. Dave Janda says it very well: the head of the snake.

    Why is this all so disturbing? It’s because America does not have a military that is committed to defending the constitution. Every person in uniform is therefore a traitor, whether they like it or not. Either you serve the principles upon which America was founded or you don’t. There is no grey here. It’s black and white. Whatever oath one utters is just poppycock, empty words to appease simple minds. The truth? Since 1913, everyone in uniform has unwittingly served the interests of the FED, making it the dominant central bank on the planet, and therefore the dominant instrument of slavery the world over. Talk about deception. This is no “cheap trick”.

    Let us not forget the words of John Adams: “There are 2 ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword, the other is by debt”. The oligarchs have mastered both.

        Thanks Paul and Rory. I clicked on each link and thought about what you sent. Thanks again. Familiar truths echo throughout the ages. That’s what gives me hope. The battle of good and evil, near as I can see, is as ancient as the scriptures. Every generation must face that battle. There is no choice, unless we believe that ignorance is freedom. To our generation has been given the battle of money, its satanic power to delude and to enslave. We will learn much in the coming years. Ultimately the truth will set us free. Best wishes to you and your families.

      Excellent analysis HP!!

    • Bill Bradshaw

      Hockey Puck:
      I spent a couple decades in the military, and you say I am not committed to defend our Constitution. Your comment is offensive to me

      • Hockey Puck

        Hi Bill. It was not my intent to disparage your commitment to lay down your life for this great country. So I apologize if I offended you.

        What so few people understand is that the creation of the Fed in 1913 was a silent coup-d’etat. Instead of the power resting in “We the people”, as guaranteed by the Constitution, the power was surreptitiously transferred to “We the bankers”, and ever since then America has been embroiled in one war after another, with hundreds of thousands being slaughtered to advance what? The cause of America? No sadly, the cause of the bankers: one world government. It’s a tragedy of unimaginable proportion, the very thing that the Founding Fathers warned about and fought against.

        I deeply sympathize with any person in uniform. As humans, we want to serve a great cause, it’s in our genes, and the dream that is America is a great cause. But it’s been hijacked… and that’s the tragedy.

        A great video that sheds a lot of light on this issue is this one here: The True History of America. I recommend it to all. It’s not perfect, but it’s a great start.

          Hockey Puck,
          This is another great video. It’s amazing it has been around for more than 6 years. Yet, I’m still overwhelmed by the uncanny accuracy of the assumptions in relation to very recent current events.


          • Hockey Puck

            Thanks Tin Foil. Awesome video. It’s like standing in front of a machine gun. He hits you with so many salient points, I find myself pausing the video every few minutes, just to contemplate what was said.

            Where this leads me is to ONE question: Is it possible to actually end this system? Alex Jones is on record saying it’s as easy as an executive order. Somehow, I’m not convinced. https://www.infowars.com/trump-to-make-plan-to-nationalize-federal-reserve/

            If it were so easy, why didn’t Reagan do it, Kennedy, Eisenhower, FDR, McKinley, Lincoln… any president who wasn’t a puppet of the oligarchs? Your insights in this regards would be very useful.

            Gimme a week to digest this video. A lot of food for thought here.

          • Hockey Puck

            Hi Tin Foil,
            As promised, I took time to watch this video in segments. It’s one of the best I have ever seen, so I want to thank you for bringing it to my attention. The first conclusion I come to is that you and I are probably on very similar wavelengths and have reached very similar conclusions. That’s rare.

            The most recent epiphany for me is one that occurred with the next Dave Janda interview: https://usawatchdog.com/trump-blaming-fed-for-next-market-crash-dave-janda/ You may have noticed it: The 8,133 metric tons that is reported in US vaults probably does not exist. (Duhhh!) So now I really understand what Bill Holter and Jim Sinclair were saying last August and why Greg said it was probably the most important interview he had ever done.

            I hate to say it, but, as I’ve suspected for many years now, a very dark depression lies ahead. It will probably last 30 years or more and it will be horrible. Also, it’s inevitable. This is NOT what everyone wants to hear. But if you really look at the situation objectively, without bias, I don’t see any other conclusion.

            What impressed me with the video is that Mr. Vrabel is a Harvard MBA. His whole presentation had that quality to it, so it was no surprise when he leaked that info toward the end. I don’t have any real criticisms. He did a marvelous job and this is a MUST SEE for any human being who wants to know the truth.

            If there was anything missing it was the spiritual dimension. The whole tone of the video was “There is something wrong”… hence a rather depressing tone and that’s why I had to get away from it from time to time. This same tone exists with 90% of the Alt Media. In short, we judge the corrupt world as bad, not realizing that when we judge the world, we unwittingly judge ourselves.

            Philosophically, I live in a universe where everything that Providence has created is perfect. So how could all this corruption be perfect? The primary purpose of this beautiful planet, Earth, is to learn lessons. That’s why we come here. This is true individually. It’s also true collectively. And humanity has some very harsh lessons it needs to learn… very harsh. But we will get through it and we will be reborn…. Hmmm! Renaissance 2.0, right?

      • Tin foil hat

        Bill Bradshaw,

    We know the fed printed a lot to swap with other central banks since 2008, but it goes back much farther if rumsfeld was mentioning it in 2001. It appears to be going to something secret (duh). That says to me that they spent $1T or so each year on X in addition to everything else in the budget so they had to borrow what went over the revenue each year. That is where the $21.5T debt came from. If it was additional funds our debt would be twice as much. Without knowing what our money was spent on we can’t determine if it was a benefit to US or just to some deep state entity. If we can get the accounting perhaps we can take the funds back and pay off the debt. The 12.21.17 executive order may be an attempt to do just that. deep staters will resist since losing $21T is sure to lower their standard of living. Bottom line, ! think the missing money and the federal debt are the same funds. We just shouldn’t have spent it in the first place.

    Perhaps you would consider interviewing a “genuine” constitutional scholar(s) who can explain, clarify, and apply the definition of the word TREASON as it regards what actions would qualify as gross violation(s) of a federally elected representative and/or official who takes an oath to “protect and defend” the laws of the constitution of the United States of America prior to assuming their elected office or appointment.

    For example, if someone appointed as secretary of state uses their position to sell and/or barter information and/or favors to anyone, foreign or domestic, is that not TREASON ?

    For example, if someone fails in their elected or appointed office to protect and defend the borders of these United States, is that not treason ?

    For example, if someone fails in their elected or appointed office to protect and insure that all accounting of the budget and expenditures of these United States is not accurately and timely reported as required by law, is that not treason ?

    I could go on, but you get the point.

    “Mattis orders fighter jet readiness to jump to 80 percent — in one year”


    • William Stanley

      Having $300 million fighter jets that are not ready to fly is a huge waste. The US just lost 24 high performance fighter jets in the Florida hurricane because, despite days of warning, they were unable to move them to safety. $7 or $8 Billion lost because they didn’t or couldn’t move them. On average, less than half are combat ready at any moment.

    Etc. You get the idea.
    It makes me sick to think about this when full globalization happens, but I see it as inevitable apart from another war like 1776. But at any rate, we aren’t really in debt. The real estate assets are probably worth more than the debt.

    97% Owned – Economic Truth documentary – How is Money Created
    2,178,866 views Independent POV

    After Hiroshima, Tokyo wondered when the next atom bomb would fall. They did not wonder long.
    In 1941, after Bretton Woods, the US and the UK began to negotiat how to govern the world and the worlds monetary system, it’s economy and came up with the world bank and the IMF and a series other institutions. Designed to manage the global currency as there was still a gold standard, but this gold standard was to be tied to the dollar and only the dollar. All of the world’s gold had been move from London to Fort Knox Kentucky and all of the worlds currencies were tied to the dollar. This system was designed to manage all sorts of imbalances, to avoid credit crunches, or for countries, credit crunches, known as balance of trade deficits i. e. when they cant pay their bills and their currency collapses. The currencies were managed and the system was stable, as long as the Americans played the role of oversight. Now who knows the great story about how that all came to an end? The quantity of money that was needed to pay for the Vietnam war, thats exactly what I was trying to get at. Oil stocks were another one. That meant the Americans were no longer respecting their role or playing their role in governing the monetary system. They were inflating their own currency that ostensibly was meant to be tied, tied to gold and every other currency. So what did the French do? The French were worried, that president Nixon wasn’t entirely honest. What they were worried about is precisely what happened. That Nixon was printing money when he shouldn’t have and was worried there wasn’t enough gold to honor the exchange rate of the French Franc. So the French sent a gunboat into New York harbor to so ever so politely ask for their gold back! Please. Did they get their gold back? Guess! They didn’t and the Bretton Woods system came to an end. This is the point at which we enter the modern era of the financial system.
    Fiat Money: A medium of exchange, which the issuer does not promise to redeem in a commodity and is based on confidence alone. Historically, money creation was pegged to a commodity or something besides trust or confidence. Often gold. But today is pegged to nothing.

I used to think this was a form of robbery, right? you take money from someone, you don’t return it. But after this documentary it’s clear – the money never existed in the first place, it’s just a freaking derivative based on a promise.
    Some promises are made to be broken and our present system is broken and not only broke, but busted and it’s ethereally disgusting!

  87. Mike R

    For something to be ‘missing’, first it had to EXIST. What strikes me as odd about this, is where in the world would that $21 trillion that is supposedly missing have come from in the first place ?

    Is he saying the government collected an additional $21 trillion from tax payers and did not report that, over x period of time ?

    Or is this more money that we don’t know about that was printed out of thin air, just like QE ?

    If it wasn’t collected via taxes, then its not real money, and printing it out of thin air only means its a fake debit on somebodies books.

    If its spending that wasn’t reported, once again, that money had to come from somewhere, so did the government sell $21 trillion in t-bills that we don’t know about ?

    If it only means our national debt is $42 trillion, instead of $20 to $21 trillion now, then again, that was all just fake money printed out of thin air, and unless its on someone’s books (liability versus asset), and their are creditors we owe money, then it really doesn’t make any difference. We aren’t ever paying back the $20 to $21 ‘officially recorded’ trillion debt we have anyway, so whats another doubling of that number actually matter ?

    We will all really need to actually worry, when our dollar actually starts falling in a meaningful manner against all other currencies, including falling against real money like gold. Thus far it really hasn’t done that, and has been relatively strong since 2011.

    If the Fed keeps raising interests like it is now, the likelihood of the dollar falling much in the near future is pretty low. And the Fed probably won’t pause unless the market drops at least 20% from here, and probably wont lower rates unless the market drops 30% in a short period of time.

    Its pretty easy to not even waste one minute more of my time on this topic of where some supposed $21 trillion went, unless there was real and verifiable evidence it existed and where the source of it came from. Government cooked books, that used to be on the internet, are not my idea of verifiable evidence.

    Just sayin…..

      “The Rath of Kavanaugh” (Expand the First Amendment)!! … “For if the freedom of speech be taken away … then dumb and silent we may be led like sheep to slaughter” – George Washington!!!

    Is there any question who we really are fighting? Look what was erected in Washington during the Kavanaugh debate.

    Can you say the temple of Baal? It doesn’t take a prophet to realize the wickedness of this country will bring about its destruction. The key argument the progressives used against Kavanaugh was their view he would end their so called right to kill innocent children while in their womb. And what was the chief sacrifice on the alters of Baal? Children.

    You’re right Jerry,
    And what was the chief sacrifice on the alters of Baal? You got that right too!
    The children and still today. It will be stopped again, for good this time!

    I’m a bit late to the party. To the positive there are still lots of independent media sources on the internet that I’ve been busy with but I like to check your site out at least once a week.

    I’m well aware of this missing money and I don’t really care about what it’s being used for, but the suppression is interesting, i.e. how this country is being converted into a police state and how it’s citizens are learning to love their indoctrination. Not that it’s a new concept. This has been going on for millenniums, the few controlling the many. But in the USA, that took a lot of work! For all the flaws this country has, it used to be the “shining light” that the world’s hoi polloi could immigrate to for a better life and some semblance of personal freedom worth fighting for. Those days are no more.

    We stand at crossroads as the many really don’t have much value to the few anymore. So what will it be: a technocratic rendering of “Brave New World,” a propagandized version of the Soviet or Nazi state, or a revolution? Given my observances of my family, I have to put a revolution far down the list. IMO “they” learned to keep the pot warm enough so the many willingly jump into it before bringing it to a boil. It will continue to be small steps down the slippery slope towards total control or extinction of life as those older than 50 know it. I’m already fearful of talking about this with the next generation because I don’t want to spend my elderly days as an enemy of the state.

        ” I don’t really care about what it’s being used for” – HOW SAD

        We are in serious trouble in this country….

        I sent this interview to a Democrat/ Socialist family member, she replied back “This administration makes Nixon look like a Boy Scout”

        She is a well educated college grad in science (she probably never took an economic or political science class-although that would actually have made it worse…) but goes right to thinking this whole mess was somehow done in just less than 2 years with Trump. I emailed her back saying this goes back to the 1990’s under Bush, thru Clintons and Obama’s terms. but no reply.

        Did the professor mention if he had info showing the breakdown of how much of this missing $$ was attributed for each administration? how much spent under Democrat controlled administrations versus Republican ones?

        I know that this money was appropriated thru the “Dark/ Shadow” government and not the one the People elected and goes beyond the Fake Democrat vs Republican game they give us.

      Why don’t you give up some place else. Find a place to hide. USAW folks are going to trust God the Father and His Son Jesus and “Fear Not”!!!
      Oh and I do not need your critique. ( I deleted that post) What you see is what you get.

    Thanks to all for the comments. While many comments were positive, I thought several people might appreciate a follow-up from me. First, several people correctly highlighted that we are a republic, not a democracy. Second, some didn’t like my comment about gold being “unproductive”. Third, while most appreciated the information I shared, a few didn’t like that I wouldn’t draw definitive conclusions. I offer responses to each below:

    DEMOCRACY. Yes, I understand that we are a republic, but we are also a representative democracy…choice of words is important and mine were inadequate. However, I think most understood my meaning.

    GOLD. I was not my intent to suggest that holding gold was a bad idea. I think the opposite is true, especially during during uncertain times. To clarify, consider a small business owner who can either hold wealth in gold or use those resources to grow his business. Holding gold might be a prudent thing to do, but it means he won’t invest those funds in his business at this time. This was the point I was trying to make.

    CONCLUSIONS. Regarding my decision not to draw conclusions, as a researcher I try to match the public statements I make with what I can substantiate with data, facts, and analysis that I have at my disposal. I am not an insider…and I’ve been blocked from obtaining additional data. We are doing our best to find ways around and if we find ways around I will share more. In any case, I think the members of the audience are capable of drawing conclusions from a set of organized facts.
