corruption

99% of Politicians Consider themselves 'God-like,' Elitists, Saints, Smarter, Privileged and above the law.


The other 1%? Bullied, brow-beat and intimidated into impotence.


Arrogantly Corrupt!


I don't doubt many people got into politics with good intentions, perhaps to ferret out the very abuse they later perpetrate, it is like going into a leper colony to help the sick, in all likelihood you will become contaminated yourself.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
No truer words were ever spoken.

The only fix is to re-cycle the positions regularly, before they get corrupted, before they become 'POLITICIANS'. If they refuse to leave they could be ground up and used for compost on the White House Lawn, there is no other 'good' use for a real politician.

Need I say, 'Convention of States' to change the laws? If you don't change something, nothing will get changed.


See They consider themselves 'elitists'.

Laws are enacted for one or two reasons.

  1. to keep the themselves in office and/or
  2. To enrich themselves and those that help them stay in office.

They don't feel themselves corrupt as whatever it is 'they' do it is for the 'good' of their minions. <sic>
Politics

It has been said that politics is the 2nd oldest occupation, the 1st being prostitution. It is my opinion however, that the two are almost indistinguishable.

pol·i·ti·cian (pŏl′ĭ-tĭsh′ən)
n.
1. One who is actively involved or skilled in politics, especially one who holds a political office. Like a skilled thief or embezzler.
2. One who deceives or outmaneuvers others for personal gain: distrusted him as the office politician.

Politicians make up congress, a literal den of thieves.
Politicians rile against 'pork' but in reality there is nothing they like more.

Politicians even considered converting your 401K to 'their' newly found SS slush fund.

Politicians and financial reform. They don't want reform, they just want to talk like they do.

Funny how these 545 people know absolutely what is good for 300 million people except they are the only ones benefiting.


‘Unholy Alliance’ between Republicans and Democrats

3-26-18

US Senator Rand Paul says that no one read the $1.3 billion 2,232 page omnibus bill that was passed last Friday. He says that when Republicans are in the minority, they are the conservative party, but when they are in the majority, they drop conservatism. He describes an 'unholy alliance' between both parties: Republicans want unlimited spending on the military, and Democrats allow it in exchange for unlimited domestic spending.



Congress paid $17 million in bribes (your money) to keep their deviant behavior secret.

(CNN)Two things have become painfully clear on Capitol Hill this week: Lawmakers and staffers say sexual harassment is "rampant" -- but even members of Congress have no idea just how widespread the problem is.


The controversial and sensitive issue has taken center stage in Congress this week, with female lawmakers making fresh allegations of sexual harassment against unnamed members who are currently in office, and the unveiling of a new bill on Wednesday to change how sexual harassment complaints are reported and resolved. On Thursday, a woman shared her story of being groped and kissed without her consent by Sen. Al Franken in 2006.


So far, there's been little specific data to help illuminate just how pervasive sexual harassment is on Capitol Hill, but one figure has emerged: the total that the Office of Compliance, the office that handles harassment complaints, has paid to victims.


On Thursday, the Office of Compliance released additional information indicating that it has paid victims more than $17 million since its creation in the 1990s. That includes all settlements, not just related to sexual harassment, but also discrimination and other cases.

I copied part of the article, anything that looks bad for the 'left' often gets deleted from places like CNN. So this was copied, cut & paste from their article. I cannot just provide a link, it is apt to disappear.


When was this money paid out?

According to a report from the Office of Compliance, more than $17 million has been paid out in settlements over a period of 20 years -- 1997 to 2017.


How many settlements have there been?

According to the OOC data released Thursday, there have been 268 settlements. On Wednesday, Rep. Jackie Speier, the California Democrat who unveiled a bill to reform the OOC, announced at a news conference Wednesday that there had been 260 settlements. The previous tally did not include settlements paid in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The law that never was. The 16th amendment, just how legal is it?

Do you know what income tax is? It is collateral on the national debt. The scum-bags in congress are using your great great great grandchildren as collateral for debt. Can you borrow money and never pay it back?? NO! and neither can your government. Those greedy bastards continue to borrow and borrow without the slightest thought to paying anything back, as long as they get their paycheck and the graft from their position of 'trust'.

The Republicans are almost(?) as corrupt, they are; after all, ☠POLITICIANS☠..

Identity Politics

Matthew Continetti

by: Matthew Continetti

The beginnings of identity politics can be traced to 1973, the year the first volume of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago—a book that demolished any pretense of communism’s moral authority—was published in the West. The ideological challenge of socialism was fading, its fighting spirit dwindling. This presented a challenge for the Left: how to carry on the fight against capitalism when its major ideological alternative was no longer viable?

The Left found its answer in an identity politics that grew out of anti-colonialism. Marx’s class struggle was reformulated into an ethno-racial struggle—a ceaseless competition between colonizer and colonized, victimizer and victim, oppressor and oppressed. Instead of presenting collectivism and central planning as the gateway to the realization of genuine freedom, the new multiculturalist Left turned to unmasking the supposed power relations that subordinated minorities and exploited third world nations.

Tamiflu — There are no remedies for a virus, unless of course members of congress hold large quantities of stock in the company that claims to be able to.



Global Warming

No matter how you come down on this issue, our politicians think they can fix it with money stolen from our great great great grandchildren.

Every 'deal' made with the UN involved the US paying other countries to work on greenhouse gas, again, using stolen money to the tune of billions of dollars.

This is a fact

Almost immediately when President Trump said the US was going to pull out of the treaty, other countries were saying they were going to also because they wouldn't be getting money from the US to do it. That was in the news, once, briefly, like the liberal media does.


It is like 'they' can borrow money forever. Your money, the National debt!


The National Debt according to Wiki.

☩ATTENTION LIBERALS!!☩
✋ How long do you think you can borrow money to pay for your schemes???✋

Jim, Tim and Frank


2012 when I got it


Where are Jim, Tim, and Franklin now?

Just in case you might have wondered how their ineptitude affected their lives after they ruined so many dreams and lives....let me refresh your memory:


Where are Jim, Tim and Franklin now? Here's a quick look into the three former Fannie Mae executives who brought down Wall Street.


Franklin Raines - was a Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Fannie Mae. Raines was forced to retire from his position with Fannie Mae when auditing discovered severe irregularities in Fannie Mae's accounting activities. Raines left with a "golden parachute valued at $240 Million in benefits. The Government filed suit against Raines when the depth of the accounting scandal became clear.


Tim Howard - was the Chief Financial Officer of Fannie Mae. Howard "was a strong internal proponent of using accounting strategies that would ensure a "stable pattern of earnings" at Fannie. Investigations by federal regulators and the company's board of directors Since concluded that management did manipulate 1998 earnings to trigger bonuses. Raines and Howard resigned under pressure in late 2004. Howard's Golden Parachute was estimated at $20 Million!


Jim Johnson - A former executive at Lehman Brothers and who was later forced from his position as Fannie Mae CEO. Investigators found that Fannie Mae had hidden a substantial amount of Johnson's 1998 compensation from the public, reporting that it was between $6 million and $7 million when it fact it was $21 million." Johnson is currently under investigation for taking illegal loans from Countrywide while serving as CEO of Fannie Mae. Johnson's Golden Parachute was estimated at $28 Million.




WHERE ARE THEY NOW?


FRANKLIN RAINES?

Raines work(ed) for the Obama Campaign as his Chief Economic Advisor.


TIM HOWARD?

Howard was a Chief Economic Advisor to Obama under Franklin Raines.


JIM JOHNSON?

Johnson was hired as a Senior Obama Finance Advisor and was selected to run Obama's Vice Presidential Search Committee.


Our government is rotten to the core!


Are we stupid or what?

Families of Politicians Receive Billions in Private Deals and Gifts from Foreign Governments

From G.Edward Griffin, 3-23-18

Peter Schweizer, author of Secret Empires; How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends, reveals that politicians, including John Kerry, Joe Biden, and Mitch McConnell are linked to deals with the Chinese government that delivered BILLIONS of dollars to their children and parents. While the law requires a $1,500 political donation to be publicly disclosed, billions can flow to family members with no disclosure required.- which is no accident. The stench is unbearable]. More
