Northrop Grumman and Boeing Spent a Ton of Your Money To Try to Avoid Paying Taxes. It Worked.

Published: Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

We’ve been following the insane amount of our tax dollars that war industry companies use to lobby our Congress out from under us for a while, but the new Sunlight Foundation report just puts a cherry on top of this Tax Day. They’ve just published a report showing that the top eight companies spending the [...]

Not making enough as a Goldman Sachs CEO? Become a war profiteer instead.

Published: Saturday, April 14th, 2012

The New York Times reports that Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein made $12 million last year, despite some ugly, but not illegal, behavior. Poor schmuck. He’s only making half what Lockheed Martin CEO Robert Stevens made last year. Lockheed Martin is the largest Pentagon contractor, getting 82 percent of its 2011 funds from the taxpayer. [...]

For the first time, most Republicans say Afghanistan War not worth fighting

Published: Thursday, April 12th, 2012

In the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, Republicans and Democrats both say the war isn’t worth fighting. It’s past time for President Obama to get our troops out of there. It’s not making us safer, and it’s not worth the costs.

Don’t Freak Out, But the Pentagon Just Took a Baby Step in the Right Direction on Military Pork

Published: Thursday, April 12th, 2012

It’s not every day we get to write a headline like this, so we’ll just get right to it: The Pentagon has ended their annual ritual of porking up the final military budget through their list of “unfunded priorities.” See, usually, the Pentagon writes up a budget that conforms to the President’s overall request, but [...]

As violence continues following the burning of Qurans by ISAF in Afghanistan, insiders in Washington, D.C. and in the media are wasting quite a bit of breath asking the rhetorical question, “Why aren’t the apologies working?” Military commanders in Afghanistan apologized profusely, President Obama exposed himself to the demagoguery of Republican primary opponents with his [...]

No More “King-Washing” the Pentagon, Please

Published: Monday, January 16th, 2012

“A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, “This way of settling differences is not just.” This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of [...]

The Devil Is in the Details of the Pentagon’s Plan

Published: Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Will super-rich war-industry CEOs be able to keep bilking taxpayers out of hundreds of billions of dollars?
