David Stockman Enters Hostile Territory to Support Nonintervention and Oppose Increased Military Spending

Investing and current affairs writer David Stockman found himself in hostile territory this week in an interview at the Fox Business show Mornings with Maria. In the often-tense interview, Stockman seems to shock and rile some of the show’s hosts with his assessments that the United States military should not have been given a big monetary infusion in the recent spending deal worked out by President Donald Trump and Congress and that the US should stop its excessive military intervention overseas.

The US military would not need so much money if the military were used much less, argues Stockman, who is a member of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity Advisory Board. “Don’t have so many missions; don’t be bombing Syria; don’t be mucking around in the Middle East,” Stockman says is the “obvious answer” to host Maria Bartiromo’s contention that the increased military spending is needed because “we’ve starved the military.” And, in response to Bartiromo’s suggestion that Stockman is advocating turning away when the Syrian government uses chemical weapons in Syria, Stockman explains why he sees such chemical weapons allegations as “a hoax” and argues “we have no dog in that hunt,” meaning the American people are best served by the US government just keeping out of the conflict in Syria.

  1. Stockman is a breath of fresh air compared to the gang of politicians and their MSM mouthpieces pushing for military meddling overseas – which just creates more people that hate the US. Looks like Fox didn’t expect him to be any different than the chorus for war they normally get (especially with Jack Keana and Ralph Peters who thankfully quit).

  2. One against four, but he stuck to his points. Stockman is important because he’s virtually the only guest the MSM invites on their shows who challenges the neocon point of view. All of these journalists support all of these wars. The notion that military spending is grossly excessive is an affront to them.

  3. Why didn’t Stockman bring out the fact that the Pentagon can’t account for $6.5 Trillion? That’s a third of the national debt right there! The Pentagon can’t pass an audit. Maria and Dagan are clueless.
