  Concerned Veterans for America
America's Biggest Threat
The Consequences of Debt

Tuesday, January 21, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM (EST) - Washington DC

Three years ago, Admiral Mike Mullen — then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — made a statement that raised eyebrows in Washington. He boldly called America's national debt "the biggest threat we have to our national security." At that time, America's debt stood at $13.2 trillion. Since that statement, the debt has grown an additional $5 trillion and today sits at $17.2 trillion; making Admiral Mullen's statement even more true today.

As evidenced by the recent two-year budget deal, Washington continues to kick the can down the road when it comes to debt reduction. The national debt continues to grow, and with it, the economic and security threats. What are the full-spectrum consequences of America's spending addition? What can be done to address the mounting debt? Who must take the lead in tackling it? And will America be able to maintain the greatest military in the world if the debt continues to grow?

On Tuesday, January 21st, Admiral Mike Mullen will join Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) and The Weekly Standard to discuss the security threat of our mounting national debt and what can be done about it. Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, and Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, will lead a discussion with Admiral Mullen that promises to be insightful.

Discussion and Q & A with:

Admiral Mike Mullen
17th Chairman, Joint Chief of Staff (2007-2011)

Discussion moderated by:

Bill Kristol
Editor, The Weekly Standard
&
Pete Hegseth

  Concerned Veterans for America
Defend & Reform | Reforming the Pentagon
Deficit and Defense Hawks Needed

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM (EDT)
Washington, DC

Debate over defense sequestration cuts in Washington has become ritualized and entrenched, making another round of sequester cuts likely. In light of our $17 trillion debt, "deficit hawks" emphasize the need for DoD to contribute to spending reform. At the same time, in a dangerous world of evolving threats, "defense hawks" emphasize the need to maintain the most powerful and technologically advanced military in the world.

Both are correct; so, how can these two positions be reconciled? Why must being a deficit hawk and a defense hawk be mutually exclusive? Can arbitrary and damaging sequester cuts be replaced with targeted DoD spending reforms that address spending concerns and maintain military might? If so, how?

Join Concerned Veterans for America, the Weekly Standard and a slate of top-notch legislators and policy experts on September 18th for a policy and political discussion about the prospects of reforming the way the Pentagon spends money—cutting the fat in order to spare the muscle.

Concerned Veterans for America
Defend & Reform | Liberty versus Security
   


Recent revelations about the size and scope of National Security Agency surveillance programs have reignited a long-standing debate regarding the proper balance between individual liberty and national security demands.

Nearly twelve years after the attacks of 9/11, with conventional U.S. wars winding down overseas but threats to security ever-present and emerging, what is the proper balance in America?

Has America sacrificed too much liberty and privacy for the sake of security?

Or are calls for curbed surveillance naïve in a dangerous world? Specifically, where has current surveillance policy gone too far? And where might we need to expand further?

Three years ago, America's highest-ranking military officer sent shock-waves through Washington by proclaiming "the biggest threat we have to our national security is our debt."  With America's national debt fast approaching $17 trillion, his words still ring true today.
America's unsustainable balance sheet reflects a spending addiction that, if left unaddressed, poses long-term economic consequences and national security threats. How can America best address this spending problem?   What are the short-term opportunities and long-term necessities?  How can veterans, and all Americans, demand real spending reform? This event will explore answers to these urgent questions.

DATE:                       Thursday, July 11, 2013
TIME:                        8:00 - 10:00am ET (registration at 7:30am)
