The missing 21 trillion, how we are all impacted and… what really happened during the Kavanaugh circus intended to created the biggest distraction from what truly happened at that exact same time: the enactment of a bi-partisan regulation, FASB 56, voted in complete secrecy to render completely occult all government accounting.
