In our Vol. XXXV, Art. 5 commentary “Whopper Report”, we wrote:

“From October 2012 through February of this year, the amount of money the Department of Defense (DOD) has awarded for warship construction came to a whopping $ 29,663,683,823. Mind you, we’re not including what was awarded to the Army, the Air Force and other ‘defense’-oriented industries.”

Well, here’s the real “Whopper”. Although we weren’t able to find a complete listing of DOD awards for warship construction, the contracts we did manage to locate, (shown above) came to a staggering $ 25,720,023,044 – and that was just for the month of June. Did Fox or CNN cover this catastrophe? Forget about it. It’s their job to see that we’re never to know how we’re being fleeced.

Back in October of 2012 we began reporting the awards we were able to uncover. Let’s review.

Vol. XXXIII, Art. 11 (October 2012) $ 2,444,276,312

Vol. XXXIII, Art. 24 (November 2012) $ 1,026,316,385

Vol. XXXIV, Art. 2 (December 2012) $ 15,292,944,072

Vol. XXXIV, Art. 15 (January 2013) $ 4,215,139,157

Vol. XXXIV, Art. 28 (February 2013) $ 6,685,007,897

Vol. XXXV, Art. 5 (March 2013) $ 8,057,203,117

(April 2013) To Be Determined

Vol. XXXV, Art. 35 (May 2013) $ 7,111,665,237

Vol. XXXVI, Art. 9 (June 2013) $ 25,720,023,044

Excluding the April numbers, taxpayers have been taken for a cool $ 70,552,585,221. Do you know how many Jones Act (and patented) container ships we could have built with that kind of money?
