Open Letter to Planet Earth: The U.S. Government is Corrupt

This is an open letter to the citizens of planet Earth to inform you that the U.S. Government is corrupt and that The Senior Members of the U.S. Government are Criminals!


The U.S. Government has fraudulently borrowed $104.5 Trillion from the future Americans and given it to the current Americans. This is fraud because the future Americans do not have $104.5 Trillion. The following are among the many that have appeared to have gotten rich because of this fraud: Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, the Clintons, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, the Walton family, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Jerry Jones, Tony Romo, Goldman Sachs, Apple, Exxon Mobil, Boeing, Toyota, the Saudi Princes, Carlos Slim, and Michael Jackson's estate. These people and companies are getting rich simply because the U.S. Government is corrupt. The U.S. Government is borrowing monopoly money, $104.5 Trillion of monopoly money, from the future Americans to create this monopoly money wealth. Yes, the U.S. Government is even making a very talented dead man very rich by borrowing piles of faux money from the future Americans. We are also paying our pro athletes and our lottery winners $millions with this faux money.


Warren Buffett has known about this U.S. Government fraud and corruption since at least 1975 but did not say anything so that he could appear to make himself and his investors a lot of money. His strategy has worked very effectively. He knew that the stock market would go up and up and up because of this fraud. Warren Buffett knew he was taking advantage of either ignorance or corruption in Washington, DC and he did not care which it was because it was not his problem and it was making him very, very rich; $60-70 Billion rich.


The U.S. Government is committing fiscal and accounting fraud so that it can pretend to borrow money from the future Americans to give to the current Americans so that the current Americans can buy things they cannot afford, so that the U.S. Government can overpay itself, and so that the U.S. Government can massively enrich their U.S. upper class friends.


The U.S. Government is operating a massive Ponzi scheme that is paying the current Americans with the future Americans' money that the future Americans do not have. I call this Ponzi scheme "USAPonzi" and it is by far "The Biggest Ponzi Scheme on the Planet". USAPonzi is 2,000 times larger than Madoff Ponzi which Bernie Madoff claimed was a $50 Billion fraud.


The U.S. Government, as of December 13, 2016, has borrowed $104.5 Trillion (US Unfunded Liabilities (GAAP)) from the future Americans and given it to the current Americans. This is fraud because the future Americans do not have $104.5 Trillion.


This U.S. Government fraud has created $104.5 Trillion out of "thin air" and given it to the current Americans. I call this fraudulently borrowed money "imaginary-counterfeit money". This borrowed money is "imaginary" because the U.S. Government imagines that the future Americans will be able to pay it someday, but this borrowed money is "counterfeit" because the future Americans do not have $104.5 Trillion. Therefore, I call this fraudulently borrowed money; imaginary-counterfeit money (See The Concept of Imaginary-Counterfeit Money).


The U.S. Government attempts to conceal this fraud by using Cash Accounting rather than the proper (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) GAAP Accounting. The following tables demonstrate how Cash Accounting dramatically understates the U.S. Government deficit and public liabilities relative to proper GAAP Accounting.

 

National Debt 
$19.9 Trillion 
Cash Deficit in FY2017 
$0.59 Trillion 
GAAP Deficit in FY2017 
$5.66 Trillion 
US Unfunded Future Liabilities 
$84.6 Trillion 
US Unfunded Liabilities (GAAP) 
 $104.5 Trillion 
Imaginary-Counterfeit Money 
$104.5 Trillion 
Total National Assets  $126.5 Trillion

Cash Accounting GAAP Accounting
Deficit in FY2017  $0.59 Trillion $5.66 Trillion
Public Liabilities  $19.9 Trillion $104.5 Trillion
National Debt US Unfunded Liabilities



This U.S. Government fiscal and accounting fraud can only be equitably eliminated by the adoption of GAAP Accounting and a commitment to a balanced GAAP basis budget by the U.S. Government.


In order to create a level economic playing field that is sustainable over time and equitable throughout the planet, the U.S. Government must eliminate this fraud and corruption. The U.S. Government must stop
cheating the future Americans and the rest of the planet just so it can enhance the lifestyle of the current Americans! This fraud has transferred $104.5 Trillion of imaginary-counterfeit money to the current Americans but almost all of this money ends up in the pockets of the U.S. upper class.


By borrowing/stealing $104.5 Trillion from the future Americans and giving it to the current Americans, this has increased the apparent private net worth (Total National Assets) of the current Americans to $126.5 Trillion. Therefore, 83% of the apparent private net worth of the current Americans is imaginary-counterfeit money produced by the GAAP basis deficit spending of USAPonzi ($104.5T/$126.5T = 0.83). (See Getting Rich from U.S. Government Fraud).


If the U.S. Government continues to operate USAPonzi, this fraud will create infinite imaginary-counterfeit wealth for the current Americans and infinite public liabilities for the future Americans. That is just what Ponzi schemes do. By borrowing what will become an infinite amount of imaginary-counterfeit money from the future Americans, the current Americans will be able to continue "Filling the Planet with Junk" until the rest of the planet realizes how the U.S Government is cheating them by borrowing monopoly money from the future Americans so that the current Americans can buy their goods and services.


This imaginary-counterfeit money (currently $104.5 Trillion) will evaporate into the "thin air" from whence it came when USAPonzi implodes (See The Implosion of USAPonzi).


This fraud is explained in CliffsNotes format (USAPonzi CliffsNotes) and is also explained in much more detail on my website www.usaponzi.com and in my book “USAPonzi” which is available on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback formats and on my website in PDF format.


This is the biggest ($104.5 Trillion) financial fraud ever perpetrated, I call it "USAPonzi: The Ultimate Government Fraud" and it is "The Biggest Ponzi Scheme on the Planet"!
