Interview 1407 – Mark Skidmore on the Pentagon’s Missing Trillions

by | Dec 18, 2018 | Interviews | 25 comments

Dr. Mark Skidmore of Michigan State University joins us to discuss his research with Catherine Austin Fitts into the $21 trillion in unaccounted transactions on the books of the US Department of Defence and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. We discuss what we know and don’t know about the subject, the Pentagon’s nonsensical and inadequate excuses for the debacle, the new accounting guideline that legally allows every department of the federal government to create fake and altered books for public consumption, the recent failed Pentagon audit, the government’s refusal to provide any information about the problem, the failure of congress to pursue the issue, and the failure of the press to report on it.

Exclusive: The Pentagon’s Massive Accounting Fraud Exposed

MSU professor shines spotlight on Pentagon’s massive accounting irregularities


  1. Seems a good bet that the money was spent purposefully but secretly held from public view. There’s a limited number of possible end-purposes and this video covers them well. The public is not stupid; what’s probably going on leaves clues that have been impossible to hide.

  2. Look at this guy. I couldn’t say, I can’t be certain, it’s difficult to answer… what is this, a congressional hearing? Come on!

    • A non-committal type personality? Just covering his bases?
      He did reveal his genuine angst throughout though.

  3. My eyeballs opened wide when he said Lockheed designed the financial systems for the Pentagon. I mean that says it all. These people don’t take any of this seriously. They know they can get away with it so why would they even pretend to hold an accurate accounting book?

    • My eyeballs opened wide when he said Lockheed designed the financial systems for the Pentagon.

      Which probably required a budget of at least $1 trillion.
      But of course we’ll never know, will we? 🙂

    • scpat says:
      “…These people don’t take any of this seriously.
      They know they can get away with it so why would they even pretend….”

      So true scpat.

      The new “‘October’ Rule” mentioned in the interview…
      It kind of tells the summary concept about this whole scenario.
      The ‘Powers That Should Not Be’ will do as they please. They make the rules which work for them. Everyone else be damned.

      The common everyday Joe can’t pull that kind of insane behavior.
      But the Elite can.

  4. Great interview James!

    It’s funny you mentioned Stormy Daniels near the end.
    Because I was thinking along the same lines.
    Something like this…

    If the U.S. public was given a choice:

    1. Watch/read about Trump and Stormy Daniels for the next two or three months or

    2. Watch/read about $21 trillion that is unaccounted for in the D.O.D. budget, for the next two or three months.

    and they could choose only one, I am certain that +99% of the public would choose the first option. 🙁

    Reason? They would be bored to tears hearing about budgets and accounting. They wouldn’t know the significance of such sums of money.

    This smells a lot like the transparency we have on 9/11.

    • This speaks to the reality show-if-ication of American politics and politics in general, if I can steal a phrase that dubya Bush might say. The built up drama over petty issues and the purposeful ignoring of important issues is very similiar to a lot of reality TV shows. It’s mostly for entertainment value and conditioning people to think a certain way.

  5. This is a small fraction of the fraud. FDR signed over the property of the U.S., its citizens labor, in 1933 in order to satisfy the debt (payable in gold) to the holders of bonds (surely mostly by the banks constituting the Federal Reserve). The STATE now “owns” everything; we merely have USE of it (no longer “allodial” title).

  6. what did these missing, misappropriated yes stolen funds buy?

    Loyalty to shut up and move “forward”?

    Forward to what?

    All those who hold still and actively implementing certain agendas no sane would fall for ?

    Is DoD really the strong arm of the ugly Banking Behemoth as the DoJ has been indicated?

    Watch out and stay out of trouble…Cheers

  7. Get your tinfoil hats ready… I was just doodling around with a calculator to see what would happen, and um, well…

    21 Trillion Seconds = 666 Thousand Years
    (Rounding to the nearest 1,000)

    That offers two perspectives to this whole military fraud situation: scale* and symbolic potential.
    As Ian Fleming put it: “Once is happenstance, Twice is Coincidence, Three times it’s Enemy Action.”

    *scale of the financial fraud, if it is a remotely true and accurate number, which I have no trouble believing.

    Sounds as if DOD accountants are trying to send a message, but what is it & to whom?
    Is it a cry for help?
    Is it their way of saying in a loud whisper, “GET OUT?”
    Or is it a dare? “What are you gonna do about it, anyway, you bitches. We own the world.”

    Or perhaps it’s saying ‘Caesar Lives, may the “1000 year reign” unveil itself.’

    Either way, scary shit. Spooky fuckers. Not good. Totally not cool. Much bad karma.
    Shame on them. It’s not funny. If they’re reading, they shouldn’t do it. “Don’t do it, brother or sister.
    All monocultures stagnate and die; they are unresilient by definition, no matter how perfect the one in your vision happens to appear now.”

    I was thinking of anyone in the military or associated industries, who may feel somewhat proud of the humble-brag aspect of the audit. Each officer, at least, ought to ask him or her self: if our entire system were to have been undermined in a shadow coup by monopolist financiers and Nazi scientists, leading your identity to be transformed into an expendable tool for the construction of the universal fascist oligopoly, Vatican 3: the Singularity, at any time or by increments over the last 70 years, would you know it? Could you even know it? Might they make movies about what they had done to you and rely on you to call them fiction? (I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt that you believe you’re supporting the Constitution and that you have the capacity of free will, of course.)

    Maybe the “slaves who built the Pyramids of Giza,” maintained the belief that they were building electro-magnetic power-stations to emancipate humanity, when in reality they were suckers only building tombs for the king, after all.

    If someone chimes in and says these coincidences mean that Q-Anon in involved, I’ll come personally to your house to build you a float tank for you to meditate in, so you can get your crooked head straight. xoxox

  8. There’s much that has been recently disclosed over the web just two months ago over this matter, offering direct testimony on living experiences that give direct accountability where a chunk of those trillions have gone & why, as reported on the documentary “Above Majestic” just released.

    • Quick! Someone call Blink182! We have a disclosure emergency (that only Peter Levenda interviewing Hal Putoff, Norm Kahn, Steve Justice, Luis Elizondo and Christopher Karl Mellon can solve by ghost writing) for Tom Delonge.

      Pardon my snark, I couldn’t resist. This film looks like it was written for the ‘To The Stars Academy’ to star in, but after initial reports in the NYTimes fell on deaf ears and Joe Rogan singed Delonge’s credibility, the producers decided to populate the talking head roles instead with re-incarneted mediums and abductee subjects, who, after all, both market-test better than scientists from CIA and Skunkworks, anyway.

      You’re correct, though, to surmise that these subject areas are probably the domains, in part, toward which the missing trillions have flowed. I agree with that.

      But I think it’s more likely that they’re planning to melt Antarctica in order to – among other things – build their utopia (and even turn on the ancient power stations buried beneath the ice) than it is that they have, will or can colonize the moon or mars. Why mine the moon, when there’s a whole untouched continent left, one where you can still breath the air… and build a new luxury waterfront riviera designed by Herzog & DeMeuron after the tropics have been turned into a hotted up PKD dystopian prison also designed by Herzog & DeMeuron?

  9. What can we conclude from this for sure?

    That government is a kind of cancer that grows on civilisation.

  10. James you might want to review “Azra comment # 28392 in Maurice Strong is dead, link to Able danger”. You will find it interesting to say the least.. GBW.

      • Thank you Hyroskope: and the village people sing “In the Army now”

        • Thank you, General, but no, thank you.

          I neither volunteer, nor consent to be enlisted, conscripted, or even databased by anything remotely resembling an army, nor by any other institution going by any name that might be construed to imply military or violent intent, even by virtue of metaphor, nor playfully. I loath even to be identified with any so called ‘community,’ as such a term implies in-groups and out-groups, and result in the psychological atomization of myself from humanity, at large.

          I do like to participate, however, in open and free information sharing, particularly as it relates to the nature of reality and its opposite. I’m happy to share in that.

          Anyway, why did you think to recommend that comment in this thread? It appears unrelated.

          • I think the General’s comment is part of his Oklahoma humor, and Texans are corny that way too.

            There is an old song (and also a comedy movie) entitled “In the Army Now”.
            The lyrics include…
            A vacation in the foreign land…
            …You’ll be a hero of the neighborhood
            Nobody knows that you left for good…
            …Smiling faces on the way to ‘Nam
            But once you get there no one gives a damn…
            …You’ve got your orders to shoot on sight
            your finger’s on the trigger but it don’t seem right…
            …Is this illusion or reality?….

            But top it off with “The Village People” singing the lyrics in their style…

            Is this illusion or reality?

            Things are pretty insane on this planet.

          • Hyroskop: the why? Relates to James’s business. Getting thur to James is dicey at best. How do you report such skulldugery? Where else but here and Now. Reality! Saw it as a malicious attack with all kinds of outcomes for a Canadian blogger in western Japan. Who knows, Japan is very conservitive in the law. TPTSB do this in Oklahoma, to the tune of 25 to life, on some people who are targeted.. You seem to know much more about it than I so thank you for the corrected link, much appreciated. Can James clean up the original attack code? Hope so!.This must keep him up some nights.
            HomeRemedySupply was spot on. I was laying the blame for this devilish work on one of the Pentagons Branches. With no inference toward you, those Branches, while cheering their own handywork must be viewed, much the same way as the video Homey links. Dancing Israelis like. Could be anyone. I do agree wholeheartedly with your good points on exchange of ideas.

  11. The Pentagon has stolen $70,000 of every US-citizen.
    And they are not going to tell you.
