The US Government Lost $1.2 Trillion In 2017 + $250 million per day since September 11, 2001
Recently, I started a 6 Part Series entitled Restoring the Lost Republic as way to try to inform, educate, and wake Americans up about the seriousness of what is happening in their country and what they can do to retake it from the very nefarious International Banking Cabal.
This Cabal basically took control over the country in 1913 (arguably before but anyway...) when they established the Federal Reserve.
In Part 3 of this series - Department of the Treasury & The Federal Reserve (The Fed) I outlined how the Fed was created, how they create currency (debt, actually) out of thin air and lend it to the US Government at interest with current and future generations footing the bill for decades to come.
Now to the point of this article: I came across a wonderful article by Simon Black on ZeroHedge entitled The US Government Lost $1.2 Trillion In 2017
in which I was flabbergasted by the sheer size of the number presented:
$1.2 Trillion lost
This is for 2017 alone. And by lost, the author means: wasted/over-spent/mismanaged/carelessly-plundered/stolen-from-the-American-people/added-to-the-bill-of-pensioners-and-future-generations, whatever you want to call it.
Here is the graph on the first page of the official government fiscal report for 2017 to prove it:
Also stated in the official Balance Sheet on page 55:
This amount is only for 2017!
I highly recommend you to read his article, as it will get you to think a bit more deeply about its significance and implications.
Speaking of scary numbers: $250 million per day since September 11, 2001
Simon Black's article reminded me of another article from November of 2017 entitled The 'War On Terror' Has Cost American Taxpayers $250 Million A Day For 16 Years (alternate link here) from The Anti-Media.
Here is the first paragraph which basically says it all:
The U.S. government has spent a staggering $1.46 trillion on wars abroad since September 11, 2001, according to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) periodical “Cost of War” report. As International Business Times reports, this amounts to $250 million a day for 16 years consecutively.
"this amounts to $250 million a day for 16 years consecutively"
Let that sink in for a minute.
It must be noted that this analysis only covers direct war-related expenses and is certainly on the lower side of such estimates of the cost of American wars to date. For example, in 2014, a report from Congress’ nonpartisan research arm found that the government had already shelled out over $1.6 trillion for the war on terror. That estimate would amount to approximately $337 million per day every single day for that 13-year period.
Post Update - More military trillions missing...
note: this section was added after a commenter reminded me about the $2.3 trillion missing after 9/11.
Oh, and I almost forgot about the 2.3 trillion that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had clumsily mentioned the day before the September 11, 2001 attacks! Watch him squirm in the video of the first two links that references this monumental shortfall (theft?):

Fast forward to 2016 yet another $6.5 trillion missing from the Defense Department
Fast forward to 2017 and another $21 Trillion dollars is missing from the US government, specifically from the Department of Defense (DOD) & Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
A BIG thank you to Catherine Austin Fits (one of my HEROES OF TRUTH) for her work on this discovery as well as Dr. Mark Skidmore from Michigan State University for his excellent forensic research and analysis on these missing funds.
$21 Trillion dollars is missing from the US government. That is $65,000 for every person in America. That is more than our entire national debt!
So adding all these three together we come up with a missing (stolen?):
But wait...hold on...not even close to being finished my friends...
[END OF POST UPDATE ADDITION]
If you think the numbers above are scary, you'll have to wrap your mind around the hundreds of trillions that have been looted by the Cabal banksters over the last 100+ years through the income tax.
In Part 4 - The 16th Amendment and the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) of my series, I will demonstrate to you how the IRS is merely a collection agency for the Federal Reserve and, in actuality, not a cent of your hard-earned slave income taxes you've paid actually goes to the federal government; but rather goes to the elites, corporations, and Cabal banksters.
Here is a sneak peak:
In 1982, an investigation called ‘The Grace Commission’ was requested by President Ronald Reagan to uncover the amount of waste and inefficiency in the US Federal government. The Grace Commission report found that:
“… 100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt and by federal government contributions to transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services [that] taxpayers expect from their government.”
In other words, all the revenue collected from income tax goes to pay the interest on the debt and not a cent goes to the aforementioned services.
And there will be many more eye-opening facts in there for all to ponder about.
So, stay tuned for more reality checks.
