[USNI] Congressional spending has become so unpredictable, a panel of Pentagon experts said the defense industrial base is shrinking and the weapons systems of tomorrow are not being developed today. A good thing, or a bad thing ?
Speaking Monday at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a panel of experts responded to the findings of a report quantifying how defense spending cuts, enacted by the Budget Control Act of 2011, has caused a dramatic number of defense industry suppliers to leave the market while chilling industry’s research and development activities.
“Though the defense budget had been declining in the years leading up to sequestration in FY 2013, the enactment of sequestration and budget caps marked a severe market shock that had a considerable impact on the defense industry,” said the report, co-produced by CSIS and the Aerospace Industries Association, and released in late December.
With less defense spending, the CSIS report found fewer contracts were being awarded. Before the Budget Control Act of 2011 fully took effect, the average annual number of DoD contract obligations in fiscal years 2011 and 2012 only dipped by five percent when compared to fiscal years 2009 and 2010. After 2013, defense obligations dropped by 23 percent.
We knew about it then, but it’s nice that President Trump’s state department obeyed the law and released the records that prove it.
[ConservativeDailyPress] A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from the American Center for Law and Justice revealed that former President Barack Obama’s administration led a multimillion-dollar campaign to "replace the government" in Israel.
The bombshell lawsuit detailed how Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ son, Yasser Mahmoud Abbas, and a senior official in the anti-Israel group OneVoice received millions of dollars from the U.S. State Department.
The funds from the Obama administration were explicitly supposed to be used to remove Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and replace Israel’s entire government.
Between 2013 and 2014, the State Department began issuing grants to OneVoice totaling more than $350,000. That was four times the size of the average grant the State Department allowed for foreign entities.
In the memo below, the FOIA memo clearly shows the Obama administration was plotting to have a terrorist-connected offshoot take out the Israeli government.
The FOIA documents plainly state that the Obama administration was aware of OneVoice’s alliance with terrorist groups in the region and their intention to use them to overthrow the Israeli government.
This strongly reads like the Obama administration was funding a secret operation to "take out" Netanyahu and allow the terrorist-supporting Palestinians to take over Israel.
Using American taxpayer dollars from Obama’s State Department, OneVoice played a major role in launching "a multimillion-dollar grassroots campaign" with one objective: "replace the government of Israel."
Making matters even worse, the Obama administration gave taxpayer money to a terrorist-affiliated organization to remove a duly elected leader of the only free democracy in the Middle East.
The ACLJ said they tried to get these documents for years, but had to fight the battle in court because Obama’s State Department actively sought to conceal these explosive reports.
Federal documents clearly show the Obama administration gave a terrorist-affiliated group millions of dollars from American taxpayers to literally replace the government in Israel and remove Netanyahu.
Why is this not being plastered across the media? Because Obama’s Deep State acts of corruption and anti-Israel agenda have been swept under the rug for years.
But with Trump in office, these swamp creatures are finally starting to be exposed. But, but, but...The Rooskies, using Facebook, attempted to influence our election!
The Russian Collusion nonsense always has been and always will be a Squirrel.
The Swamp Thing (Obama) knew some of this was going to come out and his minions continue to invent stuff to put in the press to divert attention from the horrendous abuses of power and dictatorial power grabbing of "the one"
He's only the "One" because he wanted to be the first dictator/Stalin of the US. That's why all of these criminals squealed so loudly when Trump was elected.
After the video, the BBC predictably made it all about misogyny and the interviewer getting mean comments on Twitter that mean she needed police protection, blah blah. Basically making the story about ANYTHING but this interview where the good Doctor defends himself and his ideas staunchly and she misrepresents everything he says. She's a proud feminist, surprise.

It's so sadly obvious that nothing he says has any impression on her. The starting points she comes from are listed and there can be no deviation. And it appears (I'm being nice) she is unable to understand or unwilling to understand the points that he makes.
Drudge seems to post a lot about 'sexbots' but they appear to be as qualified, if probably not more, to conduct such interviews using talking points and ignore the response of the interviewee. Cheaper in the long run, no medical or vacation leave, no retirement, no workers compensation, no matching employer payments.
