Title: Trump Budget Would Slash Domestic Spending, Boost Military Spending

On Monday, President Trump will officially propose his new budget plan, which calls for major cuts in domestic spending across the board, but which also seeks a large further increase in military spending, above and beyond the increases already planned.

Exact figures aren’t clear at this point, but what is clear is that the general direction of this budget is going to face major opposition within the House of Representatives, not just from the Democratic leadership, but from some Republicans as well.

It’s not just the heavily military-centric priorities that will fuel the opposition, though clearly that is part of it. The budget proposal also ditches the Republicans’ goal of a 10-year time-frame for a balanced budget.

Instead of a 10-year balancing, the new proposal envisions a 15-year time. Even that is based on projections of large economic growth that most economists say are not realistic, and potentially not even possible.

That money will be going into the US military, already the costliest military on the planet by far. The US military budget is so vast as it is, that it is larger than the next several countries combined, and it has already grown substantially in the last two years, while the other comparatively large spenders are trying to make cuts to the military to get their budgets in line.

Budget Committee Chairman Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) says that the plan is a “non-starter,” and that the House leadership has no plans to include the domestic spending cuts in their own plan, and effectively are going to disregard Trump’s proposal.

I wonder if Trump will double the national debt like Obama did. I forget, what was Obama's time-frame for a balanced budget?

Eliminate most and slash what's left to the very bone! Get rid of EPA, Education, FED, TSA and most of what comprises the central socialist government. Overhaul tenure of Congress....the president is limited to two four year terms. Overhaul the money they can spend on a bloated staff and perks. Eliminate pensions for thes assholes.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

Yup. All worthy "re-calibrations" to a Gummint Gone Wild. Add to your list the Hollywood production, better known as "NASA".

Nice dream. BUT...

The Authoritarian-fascist Frankenstein model of America's constiutional republic was last seen crashing through the corridors of DC.

Globalist Elites have not only created their Franken-Gummint, but are not about to abandon their Wedding Plans to The Beast. Nor will they self short-circuit and abort any of their operation. Their One Wirld Gummint is close to giving birth to Rosemary's Baby. Can you sense it?

Trump? 0bama? Add Bush (both). Who cares? At this point, any "Budget" is just a sick joke. And isn't the issue of a supposed "Balanced Budget" all academic anyway at this point? NEVER happening. ON PURPOSE. Oh...and one man did not create the situation. THE crash is imminent. The Fix has been in. 911 was THE seminal moment of change. The question is "WHY??"

Firstly, let's all admit and acknowledge an ongoing Kabuki Theater has been asunder, a series of events and planned agenda by the Globalist-Elites. (Trump may be outnumbered by Globalist-Lobbyists while his executive powers have been neutered. BUT...HE EXPOSED THE SYSTEM.)

Let's also all admit:

BOTH parties and their reps are just puppets and tools of their unseen, nameless masters.

Let's all admit:

The radical "transformation" 0bama was told to promise to the bleating ignoramuses is about to create the chaos and anarchy the Elite need in order to create a whole new system.

Let's all admit:

The imminent future scenario that will rise from the ashes of disaster will be, A BEAST SYSTEM. ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. ONE AUTHORITAH. ONE CURRENCY. ONE RELIGION. ONE AGENDA.

The Globalist Elites are set to crash the entire world economy and respective sovereignty, fully prepared to start from scratch.

First Presidential Speech ever filmed, 1924.

Huge difference from Bush, Obama, Trump. Coolidge was a common sense conservative.

Trump has exposed that he's the BEST globalist puppet ever. He didn't invent bloated budget, Omnibus deficit, but he's not causing a downturn in the trendline either.

Been about the same since Woodrow Wilson. Lot of bad stuff got started on his watch. The cure? See the video above.

The White House (ie. Trump) budget increases military spending, has $8+ billion for the wall, cuts the EPA by 31%, cuts the Department of Education, and balances the budget in 17 years.

Now, let's see what Congress does to that and then you'll know who to blame.

Trump Budget Would Slash Domestic Spending ...

Hey, Deckard – Do you think this is wrong, and if you think it is then can you please explain why you think that?

While you are are considering an answer, I will continue on to state that it pleased me greatly to learn that the OMB said 5 percent cuts in non-defense spending are expected to save $2.7 trillion over the next 10 years.

Read that again, Deckard – I know you are a slow learner so concentrate carefully on that statement.

Now, Deckard, you are obviously not aware that this is more spending reductions proposed than by any administration in history. I repeat, in history. The reason I say you are obviously not aware of this is because you have posted such a ridiculously agenda driven article here.

When you you get a grasp about the reality of the slash in domestic spending, let’s then look objectively at the military spending.

I’ll meet you back here in a while …

YES.

Why is 1913's dollar now worth 2019 nickel?

History is repeating itself.

The Feral Reserve has been advancing the ongoing radical runaway inflation by ramping up the printing presses like never before in order to pay for the 60 million illegals and generations of lazy and unemployed welfare queens/kings and their broods.

Recent reports indicate the FedReserve have been churning out so many $100 bills 24/7, that those bills outnumber $1 bills.

"Our history" and paper fiat scam are about to radically change the game real fast. (ELITES: "MEH".)

#24. To: Deckard, misterwhite, Oath of Office (#20)

No more than a dozen in my estimation.

Thanks. Yes, you addressed my question as framed.

FOE EXAMPLE, every single Democrat votes for Open Borders (NO WALL), supports Sanctuary Cities, and supports subsidies to outlaw Illegal Invaders and saboteurs of the US Constitution. They are guilty of violating their oath of office. WHERE ARE THESE INDICTMENTS?? The failure to secure the US border alone clearly convicts EVERY Democrat of betraying ALL Americans and their oath of office. ALL Democrats instead work on behalf of lobbyists, special interest or secret globalist cabal.

Arguably, approximately half of the Republican Party also routinely violate their respective oath of office when they agree with Democrats.

HERE IS THE OATH OF OFFICE FOR CONGRESS PEOPLE:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

"Enemies, domestic and foreign" need to be recognized, addressed, indicted AND convicted on the floor of Congress. When THAT happens, we'll know we have a Constitutional Gummint back. IF NOT, this "Republic" is as dead and a charade as it seems.

President Trump should be impeached and removed for announcing his "Bill of Love" amnesty & encouraging the invasion of caravans of illegal aliens to get in on "The Art of the Deal".

He's a traitor who's violating his oath of office to uphold the US Constitution (protect the states against invasion) & Faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States.

He's done neither, Protect the States Against Invasion, nor enforce existing immigration law.
