The 16 years of wars since 9/11 have run up an enormous $4.3 trillion bill that is coming due.
A report from Brown University’s “Costs of War Project” puts the interest paid to date on the war spending at $543 billion and rising. It found that even if the U.S. stopped war spending at the end of this fiscal year, interest on the war debt will reach $8 trillion by 2056.
The U.S. is currently involved in wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia that we know about, and the war party is advocating and agitating more wars with Iran and Russia. And all of these wars have been funded by borrowed money.
Earlier this month both the Senate and House Armed Services Committees agreed on a $700 billion defense authorization bill for 2018. That amount exceeds the limit called for in the 2011 Budget Control Act by $85 billion.
With Congress debating a tax reform measure that is projected to add another $1.7 trillion to the national debt – which is now in excess of $20 trillion – and making no effort to cut government, something will have to give. It will be the economy.
By any real accounting, the U.S. is bankrupt. But the printing press has kept the banksters and the military-industrial complex fat and happy.
The Middle East wars are the visible wars. They conceal the hidden war being waged on the people of the United States.
The hidden war is the stealth depreciation of America’s currency and the silent transfer from the people to the world elite – the money creators. Depreciation of the currency through money printing is direct war on all dollar holders worldwide. No soldiers, no guns, no tanks, no budgets, no charges of crime, no fear of the press, no public outcry. The fox is in charge of the henhouse but the hens are unaware. In fact, they are unaware that they are unaware.
This is the final world war that will leave millions destitute and in poverty. Only a few will know what happened. The rest will slink about in their misery, trying to eke out a living or find a morsel of bread.
Is there anybody out there who doesn’t understand that if you keep pouring water in the milk, you finally have all water? This is how fiat finally destroys all savings and purchasing power.
Yes, the modern alchemists have taken nothing, multiplied to infinity and transferred to themselves the wealth of the world.
