US DEBT DEFAULT: A Positive Outcome

In a US Debt Default scenario, the left argue that payments to Social Security recipients and the active and veteran military would be the first casualties.   Why don’t they mention welfare programs?   Government payrolls?   Aide to other countries?   The Federal Budget is made up of mandatory and discretionary spending.   Social Security and Medicare come under the Mandatory heading while defense, Aide, education, science and the environment are Discretionary.


In fiscal year 2022 the feds spent $6.27 trillion on income of $4.9 trillion leaving a deficit of $1.37 trillion – a hole that represents 28% of revenue.   What has Biden done to mitigate spending and bring it in line with receipts?   NOTHING. And that’s the deadlock.   Where did it go?

During 2021 fiscal year during the height of the Pandemic, the government spent $6.8 trillion which included $1.1 trillion pandemic costs, paycheck protection CoVid = $290 billion, $733 billion in CoVid recovery payments and credits, and Unemployment due to CoVid of $392 billion.   All of these disappeared in the 2022 budget.   But the impact left Taxpayers holding 100% of federal debt compared to an average of just 46% for the previous 50 years!

Before the Pandemic, total outlays in 2019 were $4.44 trillion – a full $2.4 trillion LESS.   Why are we still paying for the Pandemic?   Or is it simply Pentagon math?

In case you were concerned about how the money is spent, the government website detail has this opening statement:   The U.S. government has spent $3.61 trillion in fiscal year 2023 to ensure the well-being of the people of the United States.   But the vast majority of spending is for funneling wars, paying illegal immigrants, climate Change, and Fake diseases that are none of our business!

The actual numbers are still not available although dialogue attempting to support opaque spending reveals a few nuggets:

Healthcare spending is clumped in with NIH and CDC – with an interesting stipend – HIV/AIDS spending by the Department of Health.   Code for money given to Bill Gates.   In 2022, the budget claims foreign aid to Syria amounting to $774 million despite Syria receiving $-0-.   Where did it really go?   In FY 2021, Jordan was allocated $1.65 billion – $1.2 went thru USAID.   Sortof…

USAID is the bucket for all unaccounted aide.   With a budget of just under $50 billion in 2023, they awarded $9.71 billion.   Between 2020 and 2023 – USAID’s budget was raised 92%.   According to the detail of awards paid out, USAID’s largest benefactor by far is Chemonicsa for-profit company that is embroiled in controversies:

  • 2016 – Chemonics was given $37 million to promote a program in Afghanistan to help find employment for women.   The program funding was bumped to $90 million with a success rate of 55 women total over 3 years…   A cost to find employment for 55 = $1,636,363 per woman.
  • 2015, they awarded $9.5 billion to prevent;  Aids/HIV, Malaria, and TB – in Africa. Thru Bill Gates.  ONLY 7% of the shipments actually arrived at their destination. Chemonics supported the White Helmets in Syria…   while we routinely bombed Syria!
  • 2014 Chemonics was given $501 million which was used to build 3 model homes in Africa to teach students how ‘low cost’ housing can help mitigate climate change… At a cost of $167 million apiece.

This is just a small representation of how Foreign Aide Money is spent – USAID Budget = $50 billion.   Foreign Aide could easily be wholly and completely eliminated given that it has little to do with Aide and everything to do with subsidizing for-profits.   Including those who claim they are working globally to ‘advance equity’.   The catchall phrase of nothingness.

Just as the $200 billion allotted for Ukraine was mostly spent on reimbursing the DoD for military equipment – foreign aide isn’t foreign and it isn’t aide – it is a sinkhole of propping up fake and corrupt for-profit entities, money laundering, and Big Guy Pay Days.

According to The Mises Institute, a debt default would be minimal in the short term and quite positive for Americans in the long term. The federal borrowing or debt has been manageable simply because of low interest rates.   But the Biden Handlers decided to hike rates artificially and now sit on insurmountable interest payments.   At the behest of Federal Reserve Chairman – Jerome Powell – who is unavailable because his first priority job is with BIS – Bank of International Settlements.

BIS is the host bank for all western countries managing the laundering, the mafia cartel, and the trafficking payments from prostitution, child trafficking, the drug trade and every nefarious transaction we blame on China.

In fact, the accumulation of debt was triggered by the Military Industrial Complex in their expansion and exponential rise of global wars during the Bush administration.

According to Mises, a debt default would be favorable because:   “…our own government has spent the money so poorly that no coherent argument can be made that justifies paying them back. They would just continue in their profligate ways. As for Wall Street, they’ve lived on corporate welfare long enough to justify their taking a one-time bath.”

This unbridled spending by the military in its quest for wars, coups, and global power would necessitate a skidding halt leaving oil tracks by tires.   Climate Change is another created myth of spending.   The Department of Education has effectively lowered the US quality of education every single year despite pouring more and more money into that sinkhole.

Should the US decide to call it a day and Default – countries holding the most US Treasuries would likely stumble and fall as well:  Japan, China, UK, Belgium and Luxembourg. Giving the BRICS an enormous advantage in the short term as the dollar continues to tumble… However on a longer forward term the Budget would have to be slashed to actually BALANCE.    

Germany: A Welfare State Subsidized by the US

Germany has pledged to spend $40 billion on climate change initiatives claiming the goals established under the Paris Accord might now be reached by 2030 (although Germany failed to meet goals in 2015, 2018, and 2020).   The plan is to stimulate the purchase of electric vehicles, provide more electric power stations, tax polluting vehicles, improve heating systems and charge a green tax on airfare.  

As of 2016, 84 coal plants provide 42% of electric power.   While Germany has tried to reach sustainable renewable power through wind, solar, and biofuel, with emphasis on wind, a huge snag put a dent in that scheme. Wind farms that were supposed to have a useful life of 20-25 years are dying after 15 years, five years before their financial breakeven. Dismantling the worthless windmills is costly, includes transportation to a windmill ‘dump’ and has created a windmill graveyard.

But hey, Germany has a balanced budget, and a great economy! Right?

That is particularly true however, it is due to the fact that Germany initiated unfair trade tariffs with the US and has consistently refused to meet their 2% of GDP obligation on defense spending.   In 2017, Germany spent just over $45 billion representing 1.2% of GDP. Why the shortfall if they have the money within the budget ‘surplus’?

Because they don’t want to pay, its FREE socialist money extracted from US citizens.

Out of 26 EU countries comprising NATO, 3 contribute their fair share or more: Greece, Poland and Estonia.

The US has 35,000 troops and 13,000 civilians stationed in Germany for defense. When the US asked Germany to ante in some troops to aid in the Syrian conflict – Germany declined stating ‘they couldn’t move hastily’.

Rules of engagement – they decried!

We defend Germany. US taxpayers pay for the shortfall of 23 EU countries including Germany so that Germany can have a balanced budget. In fact, in 2014 Germany’s surplus budget was .6%. If they had held to their contractual obligation for defense, they would have had a budget deficit. Each and every year.  And instead of their debt shrinking – their debt would have been growing – just like the US.

In fact, including Germany 9 EU countries had a surplus budget, and eight of the nine contributed 25%-80% less than the required 2%: Netherlands, Sweden, Czech Republic, Denmark, Luxembourg, Bulgaria and Austria.

In essence, this means US taxpayers have been subsidizing the EU’s wealth to the detriment of our own trade and budget.

Germany’s response?

They have determined that by 2024, they ‘hope’ to reach a 1.5% defense spending level… Obviously contractual obligations between the EU and the US are meaningless to Germans. Nationalist pride – for Germans, disdain for the evil Americans.

Back to wind energy.

Wind turbines cost about $4million each.   There are roughly 30,000 wind turbines in Germany today.   That would require an investment of $120billion. Given the legal ramifications, Germany now has a two year wait for a wind turbine permit.  Issues have arisen that have hit the industry, including; distance from residential neighborhoods, legal disputes, a shorter lifespan than estimated, conservation, noise and endangered species killed by the blades.   And by 2021, thousands of the existing turbines will be demolished as they have outlived their lifespan, lifeless monuments.

So how will Germany supply the electricity for the mandated electric cars?   Coal.  That dirty, nasty coal that makes Germans sneer at the US.

$40 billion for electric cars to run on coal fired electricity generating plants – while demanding the US continue subsidizing the EU’s defense spending on NATO.

NATO has obviously outlived itself and become ‘nonessential’.

But Germany and France in particular need NATO as long as the US pays for it. Germany’s military is a disaster.   Their equipment is obsolete.  Jets and helicopters useless junk.  Merkel’s own military plane – defective.  A total of 3300 deployed military personnel.  Dysfunctional weapons.   Unfit naval vessels.   If Germany were attacked today, they would be obliterated without the US.   The US pays 14times what Germany and France each contribute to defense despite the US economy being just 5 times that of Germany and 6 times that of France.

So while the German economy looks inspiring from a simplistic view, the truth is it has thrived on the back of US taxpayers for decades while defending unfair tariffs and providing -0- military strength. Of course the Germans don’t like Trump. Trump has vowed to make Germany, France and the EU responsible for their defense obligations while normalizing tariffs. That will eliminate any surplus while creating a truth, a real Germany, economically accountable, reliant on its own defense.

Germany is essentially a welfare state of the US.  And Germans have come to believe they are entitled to US taxpayer income ‘redistribution’ to prop up their wealth.
