I have two main concerns about our government, the size and corruption of our government and just how much classified information the lefties like the Clintons and Obama sold to our enemies. First, you have to understand the size and depth of our government corruption and then you can better understand the other matter.
I really hate to copy even most of an article but you really need to read what George Will, one of the few trustworthy journalists left, wrote about this problem and he admits it is only scratching the surface of just how big our government really is. I have no idea how long this article will remain at this site, if it is still there, please read it there and then come back here for the rest of this article.
I got this from National Review by George Will, one of only a few journalists I still respect at all:
"The number of federal employees hasn't changed much in 50 years, but that fact masks how the government has actually grown relentlessly.
In 1960, when John Kennedy was elected president, America's population was 180 million and it had approximately 1.8 million federal bureaucrats (not counting uniformed military personnel and postal workers). Fifty-seven years later, with seven new Cabinet agencies, and myriad new sub-Cabinet agencies (e.g., the Environmental Protection Agency), and a slew of matters on the federal policy agenda that were virtually absent in 1960 (health-care insurance, primary- and secondary-school quality, crime, drug abuse, campaign finance, gun control, occupational safety, etc.), and with a population of 324 million, there are only about 2 million federal bureaucrats.
So, since 1960, federal spending, adjusted for inflation, has quintupled and federal undertakings have multiplied like dandelions, but the federal civilian workforce has expanded only negligibly, to approximately what it was when Dwight Eisenhower was elected in 1952. Does this mean that 'big government' is not really big? And that by doing much more with not many more employees it has accomplished prodigies of per-worker productivity? John J. DiIulio Jr., of the University of Pennsylvania and the Brookings Institution, says: Hardly.
In his 2014 book 'Bring Back the Bureaucrats,' he argued that because the public is, at least philosophically, against 'big government,' government has prudently become stealthy about how it becomes ever bigger. In a new Brookings paper, he demonstrates that government expands by indirection, using three kinds of 'administrative proxies' - state and local government, for-profit businesses, and nonprofit organizations.
Since 1960, the number of state- and local-government employees has tripled to more than 18 million, a growth driven by federal money: Between the early 1960s and early 2010s, the inflation-adjusted value of federal grants for the states increased more than tenfold. For example, the EPA has fewer than 20,000 employees, but 90 percent of EPA programs are completely administered by thousands of state-government employees, largely funded by Washington.
A quarter of the federal budget is administered by the fewer than 5,000 employees of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) - and by the states, at least half of whose administrative costs are paid by CMS. Various federal crime and homeland security bills help fund local police departments. 'By conservative estimates,' Dilulio writes, 'there are about 3 million state- and local-government workers' - about 50 percent more than the number of federal workers - 'funded via federal grants and contracts.'
Then there are for-profit contractors, used, Dilulio says, 'by every federal department, bureau and agency.' For almost a decade, the Defense Department's full-time equivalent of 700,000 to 800,000 civilian workers were supplemented by the full-time equivalent of 620,000 to 770,000 for-profit contract employees. 'During the first Gulf War in 1991,' Dilulio says, 'American soldiers outnumbered private contractors in the region by about 60-to-1; but, by 2006, there were nearly as many private contractors as soldiers in Iraq - about 100,000 contract employees, not counting subcontractor employees, versus 140,000 troops.' Today, the government spends more (about $350 billion) on defense contractors than on all official federal bureaucrats ($250 billion).
Finally, 'employment in the tax-exempt or independent sector more than doubled between 1977 and 2012 to more than 11 million.' Approximately a third of the revenues to nonprofits (e.g., Planned Parenthood) flow in one way or another from government. 'If,' Dilulio calculates, 'only one-fifth of the 11 million nonprofit sector employees owe their jobs to federal or intergovernmental grant, contract or fee funding, that's 2.2 million workers' - slightly more than the official federal workforce.
Today's government is indeed big (3.5 times bigger than five and a half decades ago), but dispersed to disguise its size.
To which add the estimated 7.5 million for-profit contractors. Plus the conservative estimate of 3 million federally funded employees of state and local governments. To this total of more than 12 million, add the approximately 2 million actual federal employees. This 14 million is about 10 million more than the estimated 4 million federal employees and contractors during the Eisenhower administration.
So, today's government is indeed big (3.5 times bigger than five and a half decades ago), but dispersed to disguise its size. This government is, Dilulio says, 'both debt-financed and proxy-administered.' It spends more just on Medicare benefits than on the official federal civilian workforce, and this is just a fraction of the de facto federal workforce.
Many Americans are rhetorically conservative but behaviorally liberal. So, they are given government that is not limited but overleveraged - debt-financed, meaning partially paid for by future generations - and administered by proxies. The government/for-profit contractor/non-profit complex consumes 40 percent of GDP. Just don't upset anyone by calling it 'big government.'"
Note that I added the underline for emphasis.
The thing is that this just barely begins to cover how big this mess is, in part because he doesn't even begin to get into other organizations which are also funded and, therefore, under the financial control of the federal government like our public schools and universities, which are being used as part of a "proxy government". I have told you about how our government uses government research grants and extortion to control our research scientists and what they say. Note that I learned more than 30 years ago to not give so much as one penny of my money to anything that has non-profit in its title.
But it gets much worse.
The Clintons didn't start this mess but they really caused it to take off flying and it has not slowed down one bit since. The way they worked it is that they appointed corrupt pals at the very tops of all of the different government agencies and those corrupt people appointed other corrupt people beneath them and those corrupt people appointed other corrupt people beneath them and this has been going on now for 25 years or a quarter of a century.
That is a very long time for a criminal organization to be in control of and destroying your government. Years ago, God told me and I told you that 20% of the government employees are part of this criminal organization and you can bet that most of them are in the top 20% of the government positions controlling things but there are groups going down to the bottom so they have plenty of corrupt worker bees. 20% of 2 million is only 400,000 but, when you add in all of the proxy government and their corrupt members, this corrupt government suddenly increases to millions of corrupt people and that still doesn't include the upper class trash who caused and control all of this.
We already know from reasonably reliable evidence that the FBI has a "secret society" within it and you can bet all of the other government agencies also have such secret societies. You have seen how corrupt the IRS, FBI, CIA, NSA, DOJ, and the elected leaders are and you can bet the tops of the rest of the government and proxy government agencies are just as corrupt. This is government corruption on a massive scale, which explains why no one has yet prosecuted the Clintons, Obama, Comey, Schumer, or any of the other very top members of this crime family in spite of their blatantly obvious crimes.
Plus you have to add in what Mark told me in an e-mail about Trump not daring to prosecute Obama or the Clintons because it will set a precedence of prosecuting former presidents, which would certainly get him framed for something he didn't do, you know, just like they are doing right now to frame him for Russian collusion trying to get rid of him.
Now, do you understand that these evil people have created a terrible mess that only God can clean up and you can bet that God knows every individual person in this criminal organization and what their part is in the crimes being committed?
But it gets much worse and this is where my second greatest concern lies.
We KNOW, because it was made public knowledge, that the Clintons sold at least 10 different bits of classified weapons technology to the Chinese while they were still in office. I don't remember what all of those items were but I remember that they included such things as classified satellite technology, missile guidance technology for ICBMs, multiple stage missile technology for ICBMs, and other such information that would have gotten you shot or hung but the Clintons made the excuse it was to help the Chinese build their "peaceful" space program so the corrupt media caused everyone to look elsewhere.
Then the Clintons unsuccessfully tried to frame Wynn Ho Lee for selling the classified nuclear weapons technology they had sold to China to cover up for their crime (you know, the old blaming others thingy) and, after Lee was let off, the crime was just dropped by the Clinton corrupt criminal organization they had put in place and not further investigated to find out who really sold that intel to China.
Plus we have no idea what other classified intel the Clintons sold to Russia, China or who else, none, zero, nadda, keinen, zilch.
Then we know that Obama and Hillary sold 20% of the US uranium to Russia and we have no idea what was also sold to Iran with that deal or anything else their criminal organization sold to China, Russia, or any of our other enemies while betraying and tearing down our military.
Our own leaders and government are the greatest threat to this nation, bar none. Forget about Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea; our own leaders and government are right now doing much, much, much more damage to our nation and future than our enemies could ever do.
But, hey, create some really unimportant "problems" in places like Syria, Ukraine, Iran, and North Korea to make them look like a threat to us and send some whacko to kill some kids in a school, fight about gun control, or anything else they can dream up to get everyone to look over there and not notice how bad it is at home.
Nothing like a little distraction, you know?
What you are seeing in our government corruption and the damage they are doing on a daily basis isn't even the tip of the iceberg and, if you understand just how terribly bad the mess is the left and their Muslim pals have caused, you should know that you BETTER pray long, pray hard, and pray often or your screwed. You have no hope without God because of the depth and complexity of the mess the lefties have created and I believe that the only reason we even have a nation at this time is because of prayer, so don't stop now.
This entire mess began when we permitted the lefties to remove God and His morals, values, and ethics from our government and schools to set up their pagan theocracy with their pagan morals, values and ethics, you know, Satan's "do as you will" thingy.
So, how do you like all of that pagan tolerance, diversity, morals, values, and ethics thingy? How is that working out? Is it destroying your nation and freedoms? Don't have many rights left, do you? What, the pagans are not very tolerant of you while insisting you still be tolerant of them? Ready for a Christian theocracy with Christian morals, values, and ethics again, you know, to get your freedoms and rights back?
