The Mystery Of The Shemitah

3.6 Million Taxpayer Dollars Being Used To Support The Lavish Lifestyles Of Former Presidents Such As Bush And Clinton

You are not going to believe how much money is being spent on our former presidents.  At a time when U.S. government spending is wildly out of control, a total of 3.6 million dollars is being used to support the lavish lifestyles of former presidents such as George W. Bush and Bill Clinton in 2012.  For 2013, the plan is to increase that amount to 3.7 million dollars.  But do any of them really need this kind of welfare?  The truth is that all of them are very wealthy.  So what justification is there for giving them so much money?  You can see the GSA budget proposal for former presidents for 2013 right here.  The 3.7 million dollars for 2013 does not even include the cost of Secret Service protection.  Rather, it only covers expenses such as office rentals, travel, phone bills, postage, printing and pension benefits.  Certainly it is not unreasonable to grant former presidents a small pension, but should we be showering them with millions of dollars each year?  At a time when the federal government is drowning in so much debt, the fact that these former presidents are willing to take such huge amounts of taxpayer money really does make them look like parasites.

So why are these former presidents getting this money?

Congress passed The Former Presidents Act of 1958 because they didn't want other presidents to end up as poor as Harry Truman did.

Well, these days former presidents are definitely not in danger of ending up poor.  But this law does enable former presidents to stick the U.S. taxpayer with some absolutely outrageous bills.

For example, George W. Bush is scheduled to get $1,356,000 from U.S. taxpayers in 2013.

$85,000 of that will be for phone expenses.

He must have a really, really bad calling plan.

Bill Clinton is scheduled to get $1,019,000 from U.S. taxpayers in 2013.

A whopping $442,000 of that will be for office space.

That breaks down to more than $36,000 a month.

I hope that office space is nice.

Perhaps he needs a lot of office space to hide from Hillary.

George H.W. Bush is scheduled to get $879,000 from U.S. taxpayers in 2013.

$63,000 of that total will be going toward "equipment".

How many iPads does he really need?

Even the old peanut farmer, Jimmy Carter, will be getting $518,000 from U.S. taxpayers in 2013.

But do they even need this money?

Exactly how wealthy are these former presidents?

Well, it turns out that they are very, very wealthy.

Bill Clinton earned an estimated $41 million in speaking fees during the first six years after he left office.  He also received a $12 million advance for for his memoir, "My Life".

George W. Bush earned an estimated $15 million in speaking fees during just the first two years after he left office.

So why are we spending millions to support these guys?

Perhaps this is yet another question that we don't have an answer to.  We can add it to the list....

-Why do chimps throw poop?

The federal government has spent $592,527 to try to find the answer.

-Do unhappy people spend more time on Twitter or on Facebook?

The federal government has spent $198,000 in an attempt to get an answer.

-How do rats respond to jazz music when they are high on cocaine?

Your tax dollars are being spent to get to the bottom of it.

-Does cocaine cause Japanese quail to engage in sexually risky behavior?

The federal government has spent $175,587 to find out the truth.

Right now there are more than 100 million working age Americans that do not have jobs, and this is the kind of nonsense that the federal government is spending money on.

Shame on these former presidents for taking this money.

If our Congress critters are looking for a place to cut the federal budget, this would be a good place to start.

    Maybe this is the reason people who paid into ss for 40 or more years do not feel like sacrificing for future generations. I remember bush wantrd to privitize ss. We already have pensions we paid into and 401ks,iras that wall street loses money on. So I guess the idea is we should take more money out of our paychecks for more gov. Ponzi schemes such as healthcare where whoops your money just goes up in smoke.

  • ken nohe

    I would give the “poor” guys a break. There are so many worse ways to waste far more money, that this should not really blip on our screens.

    Conversely, we should make sure that taxes are fair so that Obama pays at least as much taxes as his secretary. We would probably both get the 3.7 M back and live in a better fairer world.

    • Mal R.

      “so that Obama pays at least as much taxes as his secretary”

      OGL. If you’re gonna come here and spout communist BS class warfare, just know that there’s gonna be plenty of ppl to counter you with some reality.

      You’re trying to compare two different taxes. One is capital gains taxes and the other would be income taxes. Both are highly PROGRESSIVE taxes, which means that the more you make the more you pay. The Great and Wonderful Ozama did not pay a lower rate than his secretary.

    Peanuts compared to what they cost us while they were in office. Jimmy gave us the Dept. of Energy to make us energy independent.
    Bill signed NAFTA and pushed for permanent “most favored nation” trading status for China.
    W gave us medicare part D and gave away a few trillion for his temporarily permanent tax cuts.
    Barry may have outdone them all by way of the Affordable Health Care Act unless the Supreme Court decides otherwise.

    Michael you seem to have cut this article short. I hope it was preempted by an upcoming factual and typically well researched article regarding JP Morgan Chase — the so called best of the too big to fails — and its involvement in the country’s latest banking debacle.

      Oh so true.

      Think there are any Harry Truman’s out there?

      • nowwthen

        If there are any give ‘em hell Harry’s out there they’re probably too smart to put themselves and their families through the 24/7 media meatgrinder. There’s always a chance that the Post’s research could find evidence that the candidate, like Mitt, was, oh horror of horrors, a bit of a ruffian in his teens. Though not a big fan of Romney I personally find it a bit reassuring that the young man had some aggression in his character. You can’t do the job he’s running for without it!

      • Winston Hackett

        That was an interesting fact about Truman being too poor to support himself – according to Wiki, he refused a corporate position because he thought it would demean the office of the Presidency. It’s so interesting that some of our former statesmen were actually honorable men. You’d have a hard time finding one today.

      • self-emp

        Do you think Truman really had to borrow the money to get back home to Missouri after Eisenhower was inaugerated? That is a story I have heard more than once.

        As president he paid for all his own travel and expenses. Quite a change from today, don’t you think?

    • Mal R.

      “gave away a few trillion for his temporarily permanent tax cuts.”

      Uh no, you cant “give away” that which isn’t yours. That money isn’t the property of the govt and it doesn’t COST the govt anything to tax ppl less. It COSTS the govt when it SPENDS money, something democrats squeal like stuck frakking pigs about whenever a republican tries to merely reduce the RATE OF INCREASE in spending year over year. OMG, THEY’RE STARVING CHILDREN, ROBBING GRANNY OF HER SS, THROWING PPL IN THE STREET. Sound familiar?

      Besides, revenues went UP when the taxes kicked in – they always do. Unfortunately the debt also went up because there was no cut in spending. W was a profligate spender and increased spending over what clinton did.

      • Gay Veteran

        well the mega-millionaires are still getting their tax cuts but we aren’t getting any jobs, they’ve been shipped to Vietnam, China, India, etc.

      • nowwthen

        Uh Mal,

        When trillions of dollars have been promised by politicians who are no longer around to keep those promises it takes revenue to pay those bills. I along with most Americans wish those bills weren’t there as many of them are to pay for wasteful, counterproductive spending and, what’s worse, for programs that seem to be moving us toward becoming a socialist society. But some of the biggest problems we face as a country are our debt and deficits.

        Of course tax cuts would be great if accompanied by spending cuts but instead additional spending was added under Bush just as it has been under every president and congress for the 50 years preceding him. By the way, the widely held belief that tax cuts increase revenue is a myth believed by people who are not capable of understanding that two things can happen simultaneously without any cause and effect relationship. If tax revenues were on their way up before tax cuts were implemented they very possibly would have been up much higher without the tax cuts. Eventually the lack of revenue shows the inevitable result which is lower revenue.

        But you have fun with your caps lock feeling safe that nobody will ever tell Rush that you are RINO.

    After OWEbama is dethroned, should HE be given any pension, or financial compensation, or benefits, or perks?! Is there not CLEAR evidence that he has committed perjury against the Presidential Oath; clear evidence that he has committed treason by his deliberate policies that have wrecked the national economy??

    • Orange Jean

      I’m of the understanding (OK it’s 5:43AM and I’m getting ready for work… or I’d look it up to confirm), that even ol’ Tricky Dick Nixon got those perks. Anyone know for sure (or if I think of it, I’ll check later).

  • OldPhart

    In reality, as questionable as these expenses are, they are merely a fraction of a drip in the river of government spending and debt. A couple million is less than peanuts (crap, I’ve put the ‘now’ second worst president into the argument) compared to the true cost of government.

    Against $15.7 trillion in Federal debt (http://www.usdebtclock.org/) $3 million is an unregisterable rounding error.

    I would, however, agree to the Need-Based approach that every other welfare participant goes through (they still have that?) on a monthly basis.

    Like i posted yesterday (under Food)

    Benefits for ex-Presidents will never be cut. Not for ex-Senators or ex-Congressmen either. People who work at that level know things. Things the public will never know. Even low level officials, who put in enough years. Have seen or heard some things. The term for it is Hush money. As far as the secret service detail goes. Less for protection, more to keep an eye on them. Remember Eisenhower`s military industrial complex speech? Wonder why after he retired, he did not have more to say? Think about it.

  • markthetruth

    The federal government has spent $592,527 to try to find the answer.

    -Do unhappy people spend more time on Twitter or on Facebook?

    Yes, to them it is because like i said yesterday.

    Because Humans are becoming “Programmed and Controlled Faster and Faster” because of all these media social outlets.

    Little do you realize your being bombarded with subliminal messages though TV,Music, and Advertising especially on the computer , advertising has gone and will keep going further (thing running across you sceen), 100 junk emails a day, and win this crap.
    commercial about birth control like the ring , try explaining that to a 6 year old.
    and car leasing commercials like i could afford a $749 monthly payment.

    But the more and more we are exposed to the pressure we end up spending the money , and doing the things we shouldn’t.

    Can we have anymore shopping holiday’s? Week before, three day, after sale “Memorial Day” Push so people are going to sleep overnight , shoot ,kill , run over people to get a stupid xbox for $99.

    Every kid pressuring their parents for a cellphone . The iphone media has be so relentless that Apple means a phone not a fruit.

    Like said also once before the Lottery has become another has become a huge money outlet for the government. They run up the jackpot’s more and more to suck people in to a fantasy dream that they will spend the kids food money on them.

    Go shopping everything is 2 for 5 , 10 for 10 , buy one get one free, all looks good and you end up buying stuff you don’t use.

    Food , now they are media hyping coconut water. a fad to distract people from what good or bad.

    Everyday we are being told we need the new faster one , the new smaller one , the bigger one. How fast can we go , how small or big do things really have to be.

    Our lives are becoming scheduled as that time is the essence .

    People are in such a rush today they forget things, that can wait a millisecond at a red light turns green before beeping.

    Sex is becoming a pre teen discussion . Sex is all over its hard to ovoid for the children.

    Bottle water , people are so brainwashed they still think their drinking healthier water, meanwhile a 24 pack of small bottles has more plastic and cardboard then water.

    later.

    They all wrecked the economy. At least under clinton there were many jobs and we had a surpluss. I do not think they need the money and I hope their ss protection is not what we paid for with obamas trip to columbia.

    (Leviticus 20:13If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.)

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
     
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST! 

    Our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. (But vetoed a raise for those on Social Security) A member of Congress only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.  If some one in the military stays  in for 20 years (providing that they are not killed in combat before that) and gets out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $2,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm’s way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

    The debt added by the previous 43 U.S. Presidents from 1789 through 2002 combined was

Just give them ESPN, reality TV, and tell them to shut up!! It is a well tested plan that works. Haa haa haaaa HA ha haaaa!

    No the men to not need the money, but if they are still serving this country, they deserve their business expenses paid. I have a bigger problem with the do-nothing congress that gets a retirement the rest of their lives. You can be in the legislature for one 2 year term & get a pension till you die. These men, too, are very wealthy & they go on to other things after serving. Cut that pension out…then maybe you’d get people that want the job for legitimate reasons…to serve their country and constituents! How about cutting the GAO study on the Pentagon study of the studies of the Pentagon!! People, there is so much waste in the government, we wouldn’t even need to be concerned about the economy or social security or medicare/medicaid. Billions of dollars are wasted every year!! Let’s focus now on getting the evil imposter out of office before he totally destroys this country.

  • Wake up

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red ..
    If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan…
    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.
    There are no insoluble government problems.
    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
    They, and they alone, have the power..
    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…
    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    Mention the Federal Reserve (FED) and most people, including Americans, will think that you are talking about the financial arm of the US government.

    That assumption, however, would be well off the mark.

    The Federal Reserve is in fact a private company.

    Many Americans also believe that the FED is part of their Constitution.

    UNCONSTITUTIONAL
    However, that assumption is also far from true. In fact, Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution actually outlawed such an entity from ever existing -

    ‘only Congress shall have the power to create money and regulate the value thereof’.

    In stark contrast to this statement, the Federal Reserve Bank is owned and run by private individuals and international bankers.

    These international bankers have the power, through the United States Treasury, to print money by simply adding ink to worthless pieces of paper.

    What is more, they also control it’s value and even loan it to the US’ and other governments around the world, charging interest for the privilege.

    This ability affords the Federal Reserve huge amounts of power, despite the fact that their very existence violates the US Constitution.

    With that in mind is the Federal Reserve the greatest, and most overt, financial crime of all time?

    BRIEF HISTORY
    The Federal Reserve was originally begun with approximately 300 individuals and banks backing it.

    Each bought a number of shares at a cost of $100 each.

    As these shares are never publicly traded one can only wonder how much each is worth today!

    Collectively, the shareholders in the Federal Reserve make up the strongest financial cartel in history.

    Each year the Federal Reserve collects billions of dollars in interest payments alone, distributing the profit between it’s members.

    The Federal Reserve is allowed to print as much money as it chooses yet pays no interest, fees or charges to the US government.

    This ability to literally print as much money as it wants was bestowed upon the FED in 1913, despite it being quite illegal.

    MANIPULATION OF INFLATION AND INTEREST RATES

    The FED creates money and then lends it to individual, companies and governments throughout the world.

    Through the banking sector they then turn a huge profit by charging interest on these loans.

    The basic tenants of supply and demand dictate that the endless printing of new bank notes will cause inflationary pressures.

    This means that the FED could manipulate the money flow in order to drive up inflation and therefore interest rates.

    Any other organisation with that sort of power would be under constant surveillance in order to ensure that it wasn’t abusing it’s power in order to commit fraud.

    In stark contrast, the FED’s dealings are often concluded behind closed doors and with little to no supervision.

    THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT

    Back in 1913 there had been many failed attempts to get the Federal Reserve Act through Congress.

    At this point in time the bankers elected to fund Woodrow Wilson’s attempt to gain the presidency of the United Sates, in return for his continuing support of the FED.

    Just before Christmas that year, when most other Senators were away on holidays, one Nelson Alrich managed to get the Federal Reserve Act through with little resistance.

    Nelson Aldrich, incidentally, was a grandfather to the Rockefellers.

    After his election to the Presidency Woodrow Wilson passed the Federal Reserve Act, only to later comment, “I have unwittingly ruined my country”.

    There are a great many commentators who believe that US presidential candidates are now carefully selected and funded by the FED, so that they can guarantee that every new president will be sympathetic to their cause.

    WHO ARE THE CURRENT OWNERS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE?

    Whilst there may still be some smaller shareholders in the FED, it is believed that the Federal Reserve is owned and controlled primarily by the following Central banks -

    1.  Rothschild Bank of London
    2.  Warburg Bank of Hamburg
    3.  Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
    4.  Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
    5.  Rothschild Bank of Berlin
    6.  Lehman Brothers of New York
    7.  Lazard Brothers of Paris
    8.  Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
    9.  Goldman Sachs of New York
    10. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11110

    On June the 4th 1963 one brave man attempted to remedy the situation by stripping the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest.

    President John F. Kennedy signed an Executive Order – No. 11110 – that instantly gave the U.S. government the right to issue currency without going through the Federal Reserve.

    This was achieved by granting the Treasury the power ‘to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury.’

    In other words, for every ounce of silver held in the U.S. Treasury’s vault, the government could print a certain, and limited, amount of new money.

    Under Executive Order 11110, Kennedy was responsible for introducing around $4.3 billion of notes into circulation.

    CONSEQUENCES

    Executive Order 11110 could have been a hugely significant turning point in U.S. history.

    In an instant President Kennedy almost consigned the Federal Reserve Bank to oblivion.

    If  silver certificates had continued to be issued then there would soon have been a total lack of demand for Federal Reserve notes as the former were backed by silver and the latter backed by absolutely nothing at all.

    Executive Order 11110 had the potential to slash national debt as no interest would be payable.

    Eventually the government would have repaid all it owed to the Federal Reserve and at that point the Bank would have ceased to serve any kind of useful function.

    ASSASSINATION

    Just 5 months later and President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas in what many believe was a grand conspiracy.

    Could Executive Order 11110 have cost Kennedy his life?

    After all, the Executive Order has never repealed by any subsequent U.S. President and could be enacted at any time.

    Why hasn’t any President followed Kennedy’s lead in returning to a monetary system backed by silver?

    Perhaps JFK’s assassination sent out a message that was well understood by his successors?

    Your income is taxed to pay the the Federal Reserve what they charge for printing money that is illegal and unconstitutional in the first place!

    Income taxes are unconstitutional
    Originally income taxes were illegal because the Constitution required all taxes to be apportioned among the states proportional to their populations, not their incomes.
    The 16th Amendment, which permits federal income taxes, was not ratified in the same language by three fourths of the United States as required by Article V of the Constitution and is therefore invalid. The approved wording was different in different states and therefore they ratified different amendments! (“Is Income Tax Un-American and Illegal?”, July and August, 1993, pp. 14-16).
    The courts refuse to cast down the 16th Amendment even though it was not legally ratified.

    The Federal Reserve is also a monopoly–in a country where monopolies are supposed to be illegal.  The IRS deposits people’s income tax checks directly in the Federal Reserve banks–not in the united States Treasury.  Therefore, the IRS, an unconstitutional entity, is merely the collection agency for the international banksters.  Over the years the IRS has become a tool of the elite banking families to financially attack and/or imprison people who expose the Federal Reserve.  It is also a tool used by the D.C. elite to attack people who expose government corruption.
