READ: Why Small Businesses Are Essential to U.S. National Security

OCT. 14, 2021 | BY FAROOQ MITHA, DIRECTOR OF THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT'S OFFICE OF SMALL BUSINESS PROGRAMS

Small businesses are the engines of the U.S. economy, the heartbeat of communities, and the sources of U.S. global economic strength. This is often heard from the nation's leaders, but what is not often heard is the importance of small businesses to national security.

Since the middle of the 20th century, the Defense Department has relied on contributions from #smallbusinesses to make significant advances in #defense capabilities. These #contracts with small businesses enable citizens to benefit from technological advances in their everyday lives.

READ: SECNAV Del Toro Outlines Top Priorities on Maritime Dominance, People, Strategic Partnerships

The Secretary of the Navy, the Honorable Carlos Del Toro, released his strategic guidance today to inform all activities within the Department of the #Navy to include planning, investments, budgeting, and prioritization of personnel and resources.

Del Toro’s top priorities – maintaining #maritime dominance, empowering our people, and strengthening strategic partnerships – builds on Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin’s vision of integrated deterrence, with an agile and ready force.

“Maximizing the Navy and Marine Corps maritime dominance in an era of strategic competition will define the Department’s mission for the next several years,” said Del Toro. “Our global economy, and the self-determination of free nations everywhere, especially in the Indo-Pacific, depends on sea power.”

Inside knowledge (Probably why this terrorist organization wants me dead) A machine with a bed that a person lays on The machine flashes a light over the persons eyes and head The persons memories and their personalities are erased or rewritten in a flash. Reversing their minds back to being a child to join the crowd and to toss them amongst rapists, pedophiles, abusers, in**ed rapists, the absolute worst This is an everyday thing Person is microchipped like an animal Victims are forced illegal substances Then inhumane experiments are placed upon the victim. Molestation follows lovebombing Rape/abuse Drugs And thus, perfect Bio Weapons are created Oh, did I mention that you will never see the light of day again? Would you believe that the criminal organization disinforms disclosures with the goal of turning everyone complacent to probably one of the biggest crimes against humanity in existence today. Just for following sonar hearing, into the terrorist human trafficking organization, you will never be seen again, forever tortured, literally as if “hell” on earth existed. Bonus disclosure: If they fail in obtaining you, they will immediately target your children through sonar hearing Don’t get into cars with random people who claims they are in a “recon” to save the planet. Human trafficking has become a lot more significant and sophisticated and they will lie to get you to fall for them
