Weekly Update — True Budget Hawks are Foreign Policy Doves

hello everybody and thank you for tuning in to the weekly report true budget Hawks or foreign-policy doves during my presidential campaigns well-meaning supporters would sometimes suggest I stop emphasizing opposition to overseas intervention and focus on fiscal issues I disregarded the advice not only because adopting a non interventionist foreign policy is crucial to restoring constitutional government but because it is impossible to be both a budget Hawk and a war Hawk this is shown by the constant failure of so-called fiscal conservatives in the Republican leadership to fulfill their promise to cut spending military spending is the second largest category of spending in the federal budget behind social security spending the US military budget equals the combined budgets of the next seven biggest spending countries yet many Republicans who claim to want to reduce federal spending want to increase the military budget many Republicans also prioritize protecting the military-industrial complex over reducing spending on welfare and entitlement programs this makes them eager to agree to a deal giving Democrats almost all of their welfare wish list as long as Republicans get almost all of their warfare wish list many Republicans do not have a principled objection to the welfare state they just think Democrats want to spend too much on welfare and not enough on warfare many Democrats find increasing welfare and warfare spending is acceptable they just think Republicans want to overspend on warfare and underspend on welfare we saw the process that worked again last week when the House passed a two-year budget deal that increases spending by approximately 320 billion dollars per year and suspends the debt ceiling for two years Republican leadership ignored all these problems and claimed victory because the bill increases warfare spending the majority of Republicans opposed the spending bill even though it was supported by President Trump and the Republican leadership of course many more Republicans would have voted for the bill if a conservative Republicans still held the speaker's gavel Republicans love affair with the military-industrial complex is not the only reason they are unwilling to reduce spending and military contractors are not the only Republican constituency demanding spending increases many farmers vote for Republicans who promise to cut most domestic spending except for agricultural subsidies also many Republican Congress members support corporate subsidies and bailouts still anyone who observes the behavior of Republican leaders around budget time can see they have a primary priority of protecting the military-industrial complex Republican Congress members support for ever higher levels of military spending is justified by their support for an interventionist foreign policy some in Congress claim to favor both an interventionist foreign policy and reductions in military spending but these so called cheap hawks cannot resist the demands for an increased budget since they support a hyper interventionist foreign policy they are unable to effectively respond when their fellow Hawks accused them of compromising national security by opposing adequately funding the Pentagon as long as Republican leadership supports an interventionist foreign policy it will never support reducing warfare or welfare spending therefore fiscal conservatives must join libertarians to restore a foreign policy of peace and free trade lobbyists for the big military contractors would find it more difficult to find their case for big spending if Congress limits their defense budget to what is needed to defend a mere instead of wasting trillions in support efforts to police and democratize the world thanks for listening

  1. the world already knows that america is all bullshit and the people there are all brainwashed with no freedom to think for themselves ….

  2. There is no America !!! What we have is AmerIsrael a colony of Israel. Israel is the New World Order that Bush was referring to and America is controlled by Israel. Trump is the final nail in the coffin of what once was America. He and most everyone in the US government are loyal first to Israel and America is their enforcer and puppet of death and destruction. Our government has sold out America and our leaders are loyal first to Israel.  Our Congress is bought and paid for with millions of dollars. And their millions have turned America into a terrorist nation of the most vile and evil traitors that have ever existed in the history of mankind. If the people of America do not wake up and rally against Israel then there is no hope for our county. How many American service men and women will have to die for the satanist country of Israel.  And how many more innocent people will have to die in the name of freedom and democracy. And if you have children in the military you need to wake up to the reality of the real world that we live in. America will have no problem allowing your children to be killed for the agenda at hand. June 8, 1967 Israel attacked an American military ship killing 34 injuring 171 and President Johnson covered up the facts and gave the Zionist a free pass.

  3. Budget not nearly enough,with govt spending (borrowing)soaring straight up while tax revenue collapsing even faster,at the same costs soaring almost daily,federal,state govt have never before in history (ever)been this close to collapsing on it's bankrupt ass!

  4. We have to use the dollar and it's power before Trump replaces the FED. You'll understand this if you cover Q post. What would you like for Trump to do? Stop spending money now and shut down the Government and wreak the stock market? The dollar has to fall with the FED holding onto the strings. He has big plains. It seems like you are part of the DEEP STATE now MR Ron Paul.

  5. Trump is softening it up. By 2024 we will have a full blown Hitler. Not because of libertarians though. More like because we won't have any libertarians to vote for.

  6. Ronald Reagan — I will reduce Spending by giving Congress less to spend by reducing taxes.
    Looks like Congress found a work-around — BORROWING! Tax and Spend is far superior to Borrow and Bomb. The results are in. But it is too late now. We the sheeple blew our best AND LAST chance to defund the BEAST. TRILLIONS Unaccounted for. It's too late now. What's coming is the demise of our 250-year experiment in self-government. WE FAILED, because at the highest levels of the People's Government, we lie, we cheat, we steal. 09/23/26.

  7. returning to sound constitutional money is the most important deterrent to foreign interventionism. without the federal reserve creating unlimited amounts of money on demand it would simply be impossible to keep increasing the size of government.

  8. I see Rand Paul gets Republican nasty. I am sure congresswoman is aware of Somalia life. I suggest Rand Paul take a visit to the homeless places and the children who cannot not get proper healthcare. Arrogant man and repulsive. Oh I forgot he is a Zionist who only believes in ZIONIST ISRAEL MURDERERS AND CHAOS MAKERS IN THE TRUMP TERRORIST REGIME AND TELLING PEOPLE THEY HAVE TO BUT ISRAELI PRODUCTS. DEMOCRATS FORCED TO PLAY THE GAME. USA IS FINISHED. IT IS A VASSAL OF ISRAEL AND WEALTHY JEWS WHO ACT LIKE HITLER.

  9. They want us believe that Military spending is money spent on the troops!! You can't be against spending money on our troops huh!?
    When in all actuality, most of those debt notes are going to the Pentagon, DARPA programs..fancy toys of death..as well as, a ton of unknown (700 acre) programs scattered all over the globe..

  10. Can anyone just tell the truth? Military spending support by Congress is about personal financial security( they are getting kick backs in many different ways)! Those of us with a speck of intelligence know that's the case. So just tell it like it is Dr Paul. You sound disingenuous when you don't.

  11. Well said. We are the Republic of Death. In their minds they are killing Venezuelans, Iranians Rusians Chinese.

  12. "Overseas intervention" seems only to have been in one small part of the world for the last 40 years, except of course within one tiny part of that small part that we leave alone. I wonder what's going on Captain?

  13. "The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists,and will persist" – Dwight D. Eisenhower

  14. The corporate ran Pentagon has NO performance standards. When a Washington General enters a room, everyone should hold onto their wallets. Yet we still thank them for their "service".
