Remember former Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld’s press conference the day before 9/11, when he said that an audit of the Pentagon could not account for $2,200,000,000,000? Well, that little “disclosure” of course was whisked right out of the news due to the events of the following day. But wait, there’s more. Then Florida Congressman Alan Garyson, and Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney attained some notoriety by pressing the issue, when Rumsfeld came up with more missing money. One of my favorites back then was Ms. McKinney grilling Mr. Rumsfeld and Associates on who held the data management contracts for the Pentagram… “Well, uhm…. er…., I don’t have those facts and figures with me at the present moment…”

Really? You show up to a Congressional committee without the information it’s seeking?

Well, forget about that mere 2.2 trillion dollars Mr. Rumsfeld was anxious about back in 2001. it’s now up to 6.5 trillion, according to this article that many of you shared this past week:

Pentagon’s Sloppy Bookkeeping Means $6.5 Trillion Can’t Pass an Audit

Absorb that for a moment: 6.5 trillion dollars is missing…. Think of the roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, that could be repaired with that amount of money. And what’s really galling here is the doublespeak trying to explain all this:

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the behemoth Indianapolis-based agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, could not provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments to Army general fund transactions and data.

The DFAS has the sole responsibility for paying all DOD military and personnel, retirees and annuitants, along with Pentagon contractors and vendors. The agency is also in charge of electronic government initiatives, including within the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Energy and the Departing of Veterans Affairs.

There’s nothing in the new IG’s report to suggest that anyone has misplaced or absconded with large sums of money. Rather, the agency has done an incompetent job of providing written authorization for every one of their transactions – so-called “journal vouchers” that provide serial numbers, transaction dates and the amount of the expenditure.

In short, the DFAS has lagged far behind in providing the tracking information essential to performing an accurate audit of Pentagon spending and obligations, according to the IG’s report.
(Emphasis added)

Now, that’s interesting.

The money isn’t really missing, you see, it’s just that “we’re lagging behind” our ability to record and post transactions by only a few months.That’s all. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Uh-huh…

Now, we all know what banks do with our money when we deposit it. It still “takes awhile” for that money to be posted to your account, even in this digital day and age. “It hasn’t cleared yet,” is the standard excuse. So what they do is to use that money before it posts(but I thought it hadn’t cleared yet?), to make more money. Now, imagine the same process, but taking not days, but weeks or months, and you get the idea. It’s a nifty way to make more money for your black projects research and keep everything off the books.

But I cannot help, as regular readers here know, to indulge in some more high octane speculation. And in this respect, that figure of 6.5 trillion caught my eye, for it’s in the ball park of the 6 trillion dollars from the second bearer bonds scandal of 2009 that occurred in Italy. Remember that one? The Italian financial police recovered…

New Audit Reveals That Pentagon Doesn’t Know Where $6.5 Trillion Dollars Has Gone

A new Department of Defense Inspector General’s report, released last week, has left Americans stunned at the jaw-dropping lack of accountability and oversight. The glaring report revealed the Pentagon couldn’t account for $6.5 trillion dollars worth of Army general fund transactions and data, according to a report by the Fiscal Times.

The Pentagon, which has been notoriously lax in its accounting practices, has never completed an audit, would reveal how the agency has specifically spent the trillions of dollars allocated for wars, equipment, personnel, housing, healthcare and procurements allotted to them by Congress.

Beginning in 1996 all federal agencies were mandated by law to conduct regular financial audits. However, the Pentagon has NEVER complied with that federal law. In 20 years, it has never accounted for the trillions of dollars in taxpayer funds it has spent, in part because “fudging” the numbers has become standard operating procedure at the Department of Defense, as revealed in a 2013 Reuters investigation by Scot Paltrow.

According to the report by the Fiscal Times:

An increasingly impatient Congress has demanded that the Army achieve “audit readiness” for the first time by Sept. 30, 2017, so that lawmakers can get a better handle on military spending. But Pentagon watchdogs think that may be mission impossible, and for good reason…

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), the behemoth Indianapolis-based agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, could not provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments to Army general fund transactions and data.

The DFAS has the sole responsibility for paying all DOD military and personnel, retirees and annuitants, along with Pentagon contractors and vendors. The agency is also in charge of electronic government initiatives, including within the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Energy and the Departing of Veterans Affairs.

While there is nothing in the IG’s report specifying that the money has been stolen, the mere fact that the Pentagon can’t account for how it spent the money reveals a potentially far greater problem than simple theft alone.

For every transaction, a so-called “journal voucher” that provides serial numbers, transaction dates and the amount of the expenditure is supposed to be produced. The report specifies that the agency has done such a poor job in providing documentation of their transactions, that there is no way to actually know how $6.5 trillion dollars has been spent. Essentially, the government has no way of knowing how the Pentagon has spent the trillions of taxpayer dollars allocated by Congress for national defense.

In turn, employees of the DFAS were routinely told by superiors to take “unsubstantiated change actions” commonly referred to as “plugging” the numbers. These “plugs” – which amounted to falsifying financial records – were then used to create the appearance that the military’s financial data matched that of the U.S. Treasury Department’s numbers when discrepancies in the financial data couldn’t be accounted for, according to the Reuters investigation.

According to that Reuters investigation:

For two decades, the U.S. military has been unable to submit to an audit, flouting federal law and concealing waste and fraud totaling billions of dollars.

Linda Woodford spent the last 15 years of her career inserting phony numbers in the U.S. Department of Defense’s accounts.

Every month until she retired in 2011, she says, the day came when the Navy would start dumping numbers on the Cleveland, Ohio DFAS…. Using the data they received, Woodford and her fellow accountants there set about preparing monthly reports to square the Navy’s books with the U.S. Treasury’s…. And every month, they encountered the same problem. Numbers were missing. Numbers were clearly wrong. Numbers came with no explanation of how the money had been spent or which congressional appropriation it came from.

While many of the problems occurred due to bookkeeping errors rather than actual financial losses, the DFAS has failed to provide the necessary tracking information essential to performing an accurate audit of Pentagon spending and obligations, according to the IG’s report.

“Army and Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis personnel did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter adjustments and $6.5 trillion in year-end adjustments made to Army General Fund data during FY 2015 financial statement compilation,” wrote Lorin T. Venable, the assistant inspector general for financial management and reporting. “We conducted this audit in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards.”

The Pentagon has a chronic failure to keep track of its money – how much it has, how much it pays out and how much is wasted or stolen. Adding to the appearance of impropriety is the fact that thousands of documents that should be on file have been removed and disappeared without any reasonable explanation.

DFAS “did not document or support why the Defense Departmental Reporting System . . . removed at least 16,513 of 1.3 million records during Q3 FY 2015. As a result, the data used to prepare the FY 2015 AGF third quarter and year-end financial statements were unreliable and lacked an adequate audit trail,” according to the IG’s report stated.

The accounting errors and manipulated numbers, though obviously problems in their own right, highlight a far greater problem for the Defense Department than only bad recording keeping and wasteful spending habits. In reality, they are a representation of the poor decision making, and lack of oversight and accountability that plague our nation’s government as a whole.

While the Department of Defense can’t account for $6.5 trillion dollars of taxpayer funds, in 2014 there were 47 million people, including over 15 million children, living in poverty in the U.S. – %15 of the U.S. population, which is the largest total number in poverty since records began being kept 52 years ago.

Please share this story if you are appalled by the fact that there are Americans that are homeless and hungry, including U.S. combat veterans — while the government is unable to account for $6.5 trillion dollars of taxpayer money.

FBI Arrests HSBS Bankers, But Leaves You To Connect The Dots

FBI ARRESTS HSBC BANKERS, BUT LEAVES YOU TO CONNECT THE DOTS

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
July 27, 2016

Every now and then one just has to stop and admire the banksters; for duplicity, subtlety, and a tapestry of relationships that leaves one wondering just how deep the corruption goes, for a tangle of political corruption that perhaps only divine omniscience and ubiquity could sort out, they are unparalleled. What am I talking about? Well, this one may leave you scratching your head, as it did me, and I am tempted to file this one under the “you tell me” category: the FBI, apparently, has arrested two senior managers at HSBC (Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation):

FBI arrests senior HSBC banker accused of rigging multibillion-dollar deal

Of course, the HSBC has a rather long and dubious history; think opium and the 19th century here, or for that matter, Lord Blackheath’s comments in the House of Lords a few years ago (see my extensive quotations from his remarks in Hansard’s in Covert Wars and Breakaway Civiizations). And now, yet again, another bank caught in illegal manipulations, this time, of currency rates:

A senior HSBC banker has been arrested by the FBI as he attempted to board a transatlantic flight and charged him with fraudulently rigging a multibillion-dollar currency exchange deal.

Mark Johnson, a British citizen and HSBC’s global head of foreign exchange trading, and a colleague are accused of “defrauding clients” and alleged to have “corruptly manipulated the foreign exchange market to benefit themselves and their bank”.

He was arrested on Tuesday night shortly before he was due to fly to London from New York’s JFK airport, and was due to be formally charged by a judge at Brooklyn federal court later on Wednesday. He was later released on bail.

A second Briton, Stuart Scott, who was HSBC’s European head of foreign exchange trading in London until December 2014, is accused of the same crimes. A warrant was issued for Scott’s arrest.They are the first people to be charged in connection with the US government’s long-running investigation into bankers’ alleged rigging of the $5.3tn (£4tn) per day forex market.

“The defendants allegedly betrayed their client’s confidence, and corruptly manipulated the foreign exchange market to benefit themselves and their bank,” said the US assistant attorney general Leslie Caldwell. “This case demonstrates the [US Department of Justice’s] criminal division’s commitment to hold corporate executives, including at the world’s largest and most sophisticated institutions, responsible for their crimes.”

Ok… by now we’re all accustomed to the fact that these big banks are about as trustworthy as George Soros at a color revolution.

But, in case you missed it when you were too busy frothing about a few plagiarized lines in Ms. Trump’s speech (and there’s much to be horrified about at the Republican convention, but it wasn’t that), HSBC has connections to Ms. Clinton, to the FBI director that recently “cleared” her of intent to violate the law (even when the law itself isn’t about intent, but simply negligence, and even though it isn’t his job to recommend prosecutions, it’s the attorney general’s, who, incidentally, has her own connections to HSBC and was only talking about the grandkids with Bill on the tarmac):

Book Review: Covert Wars And Breakaway Civilizations – The Secret Space Program, Celestial Psyops & Hidden Conflicts by Dr. Joseph P. Farrell

Of the many great books Dr. Joseph P. Farrell has published, this one is one of my favorites.

Constantly, for many years now he has been putting out high quality information, and this book is no different.

Covert Wars And Breakaway Civilizations – The Secret Space Program, Celestial Psyops & Hidden Conflicts by Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, is a mind bending expedition not only into the abstruse facets/subjects that have helped mold our society, but also showcasing how these components are being used to carve out a different reality – a more sinister one. And parallel to that is arguably one collective powerful group [at minimum] that’s breaking away.

‘Breaking Away’, is an off-shoot of the term ‘Breakaway Civilization’, which was coined by scholar and renown researcher Richard Dolan.  Dolan has written an extensive and rather thought-provoking synopsis of what a Breakaway Civilization is in his analysis titled A Breakaway Civilization: What It Is, & What It Means For Us

Getting back on track, opening the journey into this book, Farrell lays the foundation by covering the financial nexus that has fueled much of the malice that we have seen within the financial sector, and which has naturally dovetailed into other arenas as well.

Economic warfare is a topic that doesn’t get enough light by mainstream, and even alternative media circles to some extent. However, the modern derivative [no pun intended] of financial warfare has some of its nascent stages within the earlier parts of the 20th Century. A prime example of this is Operation Bernhard. This type of operation was the brainchild of the Nazi’s during WWII, and its main purpose was to “destabilise the British economy via economic warfare by flooding the global and British Empire with Forged Bank of England” notes.[1]

This sophisticated method of economic warfare of using British pound notes was phenomenally trenchant not only because it took part in an industrial scale, as Farrell mentions, but also because as is mentioned by the author, “They were, in effect, to be British pound notes”. That’s the type of forgeries that were being carried out by the Nazis.[2] Why is this important? Because, as alluded to earlier, this helped lay the financial foundation for what would become the Nazi War Machine

Moving on, coupled with the financial component that is Operation Bernhard, Farrell moves forward to a more modern operation that involves the recent Bearer Bond Scandal, as well as how the Vatican dovetails into that as well. The so called “Kennedy Bonds” are touched upon lightly as well. Farrell does a rather thorough analysis of these Bonds within his book, and with a fine-tooth comb picks apart some minute [i.e. monumental] details that are not so subtle in regards to space.

All of these abstruse yet notable avenues lead towards what Farrell has repeatedly named, a hidden system Of Finance. This particular system is what was created in the mid 20th century, and has been arguably used to fund a large majority of the more nefarious technological programs that take place behind the scenes as it were.

In a way, all of these topics [and more] segue into bulk data in many different ways. This of course merges with the topic of bulk data collection. And on this topic, Farrell postulates that the PROMIS system, which is related to the Inslaw affair, is a profound technology used to carry this type of bulk spying. Why is this important? Because as Farrell alludes in his book:

“According to Seymour, Inslaw founder Bill Hamilton had come to his own research conclusions. He believed “…after more than two decades of research, that the modified version of his PROMIS software had been used for money laundering of drug profits to fund unauthorized intelligence operations…” Indeed, such a powerful program would not only allow the tracking of covert financial activities, and even for the existence of an entire covert financial system, but it would also allow something equally important for such a system to exist, namely, the ability to cover its tracks and obfuscate its activities by using the “backdoor” to modify the actual numbers of transactions…say, for example, the amounts of gold actually in existence. Such a tool would allow the same amount of gold to be used as the backing or collateral to float securities over and over different issues.” [3]

As if that’s not enough, the PROMIS system has darker components, but for that, you will have to read Farrell’s book.

The gold alluded to the passage cited above, is the main component in Operation Golden Lily. Farrell tackles how Operation Golden Lily, as well as the Bearer Bonds, were used in the establishment of the hidden system of finance spoken about already. As the author has mentioned countless times, the amount of Gold in circulation, by any and all precise forms of analysis, is not capable of being narrowed down and honed in on. There is no unquestionable verifiable source that one can cite as conclusive in respect to the amount of Gold in circulation in the system. Different researchers will give readers different estimates of these amounts, and as Farrell has alluded to if am not mistake, this is done on purpose, to obfuscate the real amount of Gold in circulation. This is because, as Farrell estimates, the amount of Gold in circulation might be off by an order of magnitude. A preposterous hypothesis to some perhaps, but, when taken in conjunction with all the data provided by Farrell, as well as the monumental work of Sterling and Peggy Seagrave in Gold Warriors, and other researchers as well, one begins to see a larger picture that has been clearly veiled over for very nefarious reasons.   Some of these reasons are honed in on by Farrell in this book and in his interviews regarding this subject.

Other subjects that dovetail disturbingly quite well into this book is 9/11 targets, the Bushes, and many other parts of this orchestrated event . The components of 9/11 that Farrell harpoons on are oft-overlooked sections by most 9/11 researchers, but ones that have rather resounding effects into what is still taking place to this day.

Farrell’s theory as to why the covert operation that was 9/11 was undertaken is spoken about, and it’s something that no other researcher out there has even touched, nor come close too in my estimation. The author’s hypothesis, when all the data presented is taken into consideration, is arguably incredibly strong.  This can be noted by the capabilities of the orchestrators of the attack, as well as what they stood to lose by a possible exposure of their hidden financial capacities if such attack did not take place.

One particular subject that has far reaching implications is the weaponization of planet earth. Regarding this, Farrell covers not only the technologies of Geophysical Warfare, but also how this couples rather disturbingly with Kardashev’s Class Of Civilizations theory.  Regarding Geophysical Warfare, Farrell looks through various lenses, and even hones in on an Air Force study called Weather As A Force Multiplier: Owning The Weather In 2025.

Such power gives those in control, as writer of Weather Farfare: The Military’s Plan To Draft Mother Nature, Jerry Smith states, the ability to undertake “war covertly by causing droughts, storms, volcanic eruptions and floods” and thus raising the question “how would the general public know if such war were being fought?”[4]

Farrell even takes a gander at some of Charles L. Chandler’s work in respect to the Electromagnetic Nature of Tornadoes. This component was definitely unexpected but very fascinating.

Given the highly advanced technological dissertation in the book, of course, no work would be complete without at least taking a gander at Nikola Tesla’s work. Here, Farrell follows how Tesla’s work dovetailed with geophysical weapons, and then some. From there, not only does the author carry out some detailed analysis in a few directions, but he also gives some of the powerful implications that are set forth from there.   This chapter alone will blow a hole in most people’s conventional views of Earthquakes, and many other ‘natural’ phenomena.

Dozens of pages, if not more, could be written about Farrell’s coverage, and the disturbing implications of all that he covers. That still wouldn’t be enough, because there are so many components that merge into what’s been called “Full Spectrum Dominance” that it boggles the mind of those which know not of what’s taking place.

Farrell also buttresses his book with a thorough view into the “Airship Mystery” of the 19th and early 20th century. This is quite notable, for within these observations one can see how the nascent stages – the schematics – of a Breakaway Civilization were developed.

Another oft-overlooked, but quite important issue that is covered is that of UFOs and Nuclear Weapons. Countless events have taken place in which UFOs have shown their capability to activate nuclear missiles. Yes, you read that right. This has been covered by many researches, most notably Robert Hastings covers it incisively in his books UFOs And Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters At Nuclear Weapon Sites. Farrell covers this aspect, as having the most powerful weapons [within the public realm] be able to be toyed with, by others – whomever they may be – shows capacity that’s oft-covered up by the mainstream.

Given the powers that those piloting the UFOs were showcasing, as Farrell notes, “The technological capability of the UFO presented a direct challenge to the aura of “full spectrum dominance’ being evolved by the elite during the postwar period, and hence, the UFO presence could not be openly acknowledged, at least, that is, until some technological parity had been achieved.”[5]

In all honesty, all of what Farrell covers is very intriguing, but not without its darker implications. If any of what has been mentioned fascinates you, get this book. You will not regret it.

Most people think we live in a word where the impossible can’t take place; where reality is by most measures boring. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Not only does this book show how much of what people would call Science Fiction does take place, but lays the foundation to view modern, and future warfare in a different light.

Gone are the days in which the use of a sword as a weapon, would prompt the enemy to create a shield, which would prompt the counter enemy to create a cannon, and so on. Linear warfare for all intents and purposes its losing its effectiveness, except for in theater.

Humanity has walked through a dangerous door, in which warfare is not only waged via economic means, but also via propaganda, social engineering, entrainment technology, weaponized foods, GeoEngineering and so on. Coupled with that are non-linear weapons being used, in which one country creates a storm, while the other can reply with a hurricane, and the next can use an Earthquake, and even possibly Tsunamis as well. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.   And the thing is, most of the populace is blind to it because they think its always “Mother Nature” pulling the strings. Only if it were that simple.

If you’re still skeptical, why not take a gander at, as was mentioned earlier, the Air Force study called Weather As A Force Multiplier: Owning The Weather In 2025. That alone will blow most people’s mind into what the Airforce was planning to accomplish. That’s in the public record as well.

If you’re looking for more info, as well, make sure to take a gander at Farrell’s other two books in this series:

Saucers, Swastikas and Psyops: A History Of A Breakaway Civilization: Hidden Aerospace Technologies And Psychological Operations

Covert Wars and the Clash Of Civilizations: UFOs, Oligarchs an Space Secrecy.

This entire trilogy will allow you to view the world in a whole new lense, and realize that history is not what we’re being taught. History is about what lies in the shadows. And we can only see that, if light is cast upon it. This book sheds plenty of light in those direction where darkness has seeped into.

There are countless other topics that are covered, and for that, you’ll have to read this book.
