    This conflicts with the 495 billion in the 2015 budget. So where did they apply the other charges on the actual budget? Or is our spending actually 500 billion more than the Obama administration willing to make public? Does that mean they are at a 1 trillion dollar deficit? What else is hidden? Are we being fooled here?!

    Is our spending $600B more than $495B? That means we're spending $1.1T!

    Is our spending $700B more than $495B? That means we're spending $1.2T!

    etc. You answer your question in the affirmative without evidence, then act shocked by simple arithmetic.

    We are spending 3.6 trillion this year. The defense spending from this clock is 580 billion. The article says we are spending 1 trillion. Who's lying?

    The liberals pretend what we spend on the police counts as military spending. The department of energy's budget is counted as military spending by them. And so on.

    Your own link details how they came up with the $1T figure.

    They include $38.5B from the budget of the International Affairs budget, all veterans' services (e.g. VA hospitals, etc.), and a share of Obama's massive national debt.

    Considering that DHS is nothing more than a poorly veiled branch of the military whose sole mission is to control American citizens, I think the number is much larger.
