5/13/22 David Stockman on Washington’s Military Keynesianism

 Download Episode. Scott interviews David Stockman about the war in Ukraine and the American economy. They begin by discussing the war in Ukraine. Stockman argues that the irrational motivator behind Washington’s actions is Trump-Derangement Syndrome — that Putin is a surrogate for Trump and you need to demonstrate blind hatred for him to be accepted.

The Long, Lucrative, and Bloody Road to World War III

representative adam kinzinger at hudson institute

Well, this war in Ukraine will last "months and years." At least, that is what the leaders of the D.C. foreign policy blob, the media, President Joe Biden’s men, Pentagon and NATO leadership have decided. Their plan is to pour oil on the flames and keep the fire raging. Also, Americans are going to have to cough up the dough for another massive aid package, with $20 billion worth of weapons to keep the blood flowing. In total, this next package will cost the taxpayer $33 billion. With Biden’s proposed $813 billion “defense” budget for 2023, the U.S. is spending more on the military and...

IG Report: Army Risks Wasting Nearly $22 Billion on Visual Augmentation System

ivas

A Department of Defense Inspector General report on the Army’s Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) program reveals potentially billions in waste.  The Pentagon audit found, “IVAS program officials did not define minimum user acceptance levels to determine whether IVAS would meet user needs. This occurred because Army policy did not require program officials to define suitable user acceptance levels. Procuring IVAS without attaining user acceptance could result in wasting up to $21.88 billion in taxpayer funds to field a system that Soldiers may not want to use or use as...

We Want YOU to Keep The War Going

mal

The American people are allowing their blood soaked rulers in Washington to callously prolong the war in Ukraine. The complicit media  has propagandized and lied the American people into insisting Washington double down on all their worst aggressions. And so continues the hawks’ reckless gamble on World War 3 to spite President Vladimir Putin and - once and for all - destroy Russia.  President Joe Biden’s administration and other hawks do not want the war in Ukraine to end. They are not alone, some NATO member states prefer to see the war drag on indefinitely as well. As Libertarian...
