UNBELIEVABLE: $21 Trillion missing from The Pentagon!! – Remember 911 & the missing $2.3 Trillion?

let’s get back to the beginning. A couple of years ago, Mark Skidmore, an economics professor, heard Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, say that the Department of Defense Office of Inspector General had found $6.5 trillion worth of unaccounted-for spending in 2015. Skidmore, being an economics professor, thought something like, “She means $6.5 billion. Not trillion. Because trillion would mean the Pentagon couldn’t account for more money than the gross domestic product of the whole United Kingdom. But still, $6.5 billion of unaccounted-for money is a crazy amount.”
Note: 21 Trillion can this be accurate?

Homeless Crisis in Los Angeles Worsens

Nearly 554,000 people were living on America's streets last year, according to a government survey. That's the first increase since 2010, driven, experts say, by a surge in the homeless in Los Angeles and other West Coast cities. Homelessness has been a serious problem for Los Angeles for years, but as the housing crisis intensifies, it seems to have gotten worse. Some say it's time to cut municipal funding for the homeless, but others want to help.
Note: Israel receives over 10 million dollars a day and they want more. Some of these homeless are veterans!

Eastern European Laws on World War II History Spark Congressional Reaction

What countries in Eastern Europe might have once assumed were domestic debates over World War II history are spilling over into major international disputes and causing problems for their relations with the United States. Last month, more than 50 members of Congress sent a letter to the State Department that expressed concerns about "state-sponsored Holocaust distortion and denial." The lawmakers note that both Poland and Ukraine recently passed laws relating to World War II history and claim these are connected to rising incidents of anti-Semitism. The April 23 letter has drawn ire and sparked debate in Poland, Ukraine, and certain academic and political circles in the United States ... At issue for lawmakers are pieces of legislation passed in Poland and Ukraine relating to World War II history.
Note: There are laws about the holocau$t incident that if not obeyed you will be put in jail.

Trump signs Holocaust property law that has angered Poland

U.S. President Donald Trump has signed an act that Jewish groups praise as helpful in their efforts to reclaim lost property in Poland but which the Polish government says is discriminatory. The White House says Trump signed the "Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today" - or JUST - Act. It requires the State Department to report to Congress on what steps dozens of countries in Europe have taken to compensate Holocaust survivors or their heirs for assets seized under Nazi German and Communist rule ... "This position of the (U.S.) Congress is not good because it wants some privileges for the Jews, for the Jewish community, but not for the Poles. I think that the Poles who live in the U.S. may feel hurt by that," Czaputowicz told The Associated Press.
Note: Which is it, the Jews were humble peasants farming etc. or they owned all the gold, silver, paintings, art works, and property in Europe!

Governor Signs Legislation to Require Holocaust Education

Connecticut's school districts will soon be required to teach students about the Holocaust. Lawmakers passed the legislation and the governor said on Thursday morning that he has signed it, citing an increase in hate crimes and the lack of knowledge millennials have about the Holocaust ... Gov. Dannel Malloy said in a statement ... "We are simply not doing enough to teach our young people the extreme and deadly mistakes of the past. Holocaust and genocide awareness are not just essential curriculum, but critical." While the state Department of Education had made an optional course on genocide available to districts, legislators said many have not used it. The legislation requires local and regional school boards to include the topic in their social studies curriculum beginning with the 2018-19 school year.
Note: If holocau$t education is to be taught the event should be open to investigation and revision. Please no more Jewish soap, shrunken heads, etc. The truth please.

2nd American Revolution essential stages: 1) Recognize the US .01% illegal rogue state empire, 2) Speak up, 3) Engage where Life/God gives you battles to offer choice for ‘We the People’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“There are three scales of intelligence, one which understands by itself, a second which understands what is shown it by others, and a third which understands neither by itself nor on the showing of others.”~ Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince, Chapter XXII, page 172 (London: Oxford University Press, 1913) Translated by Ninian Hill Thomson

After 41 years of civic activism to end empire-imposed poverty, history-endured, and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression started with lies known to be lies as they were told, and have truth in media and education, I conclude the role of the awake has been to offer fundamental choices to We the People for standing for virtue or kneeling to evil in either willful complicity or willful disconnection from our Brothers and Sisters’ enslavement as work animals, “food” and sadistic entertainment for evil.

I do my best to artistically represent the human condition here.
