Government Corruption Has Become Rampant

The Cop Is On the Take

Government corruption has become rampant:

  • Senior SEC employees spent up to 8 hours a day surfing porn sites instead of cracking down on financial crimes
  • NSA spies pass around homemade sexual videos and pictures they’ve collected from spying on the American people
  • Investigators from the Treasury’s Office of the Inspector General found that some of the regulator’s employees surfed erotic websites, hired prostitutes and accepted gifts from bank executives … instead of actually working to help the economy
  • The Minerals Management Service – the regulator charged with overseeing BP and other oil companies to ensure that oil spills don’t occur – was riddled with “a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity”, which included “sex with industry contacts
  • Agents for the Drug Enforcement Agency had dozens of sex parties with prostitutes hired by the drug cartels they were supposed to stop (they also received money, gifts and weapons from drug cartel members)
  • The former chief accountant for the SEC says that Bernanke and Paulson broke the law and should be prosecuted
  • The government knew about mortgage fraud a long time ago. For example, the FBI warned of an “epidemic” of mortgage fraud in 2004. However, the FBI, DOJ and other government agencies then stood down and did nothing. See this and this. For example, the Federal Reserve turned its cheek and allowed massive fraud, and the SEC has repeatedly ignored accounting fraud. Indeed, Alan Greenspan took the position that fraud could never happen
  • Paulson and Bernanke falsely stated that the big banks receiving Tarp money were healthy, when they were not. The Treasury Secretary also falsely told Congress that the bailouts would be used to dispose of toxic assets … but then used the money for something else entirely
  • Warmongerers in the U.S. government knowingly and intentionally lied us into a war of aggression in Iraq.  The former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – the highest ranking military officer in the United States – said that the Iraq war was “based on a series of lies”. The same is true in Libya and other wars
  • The Bush White House worked hard to smear CIA officersbloggers and anyone else who criticized the Iraq war

The biggest companies own the D.C. politicians.  Indeed, the head of the economics department at George Mason University has pointed out that it is unfair to call politicians “prostitutes”.  They are in fact pimps … selling out the American people for a price.

Government regulators have become so corrupted and “captured” by those they regulate that Americans know that the cop is on the take.   Institutional corruption is killing people’s trust in our government and our institutions.

Indeed, America is no longer a democracy or republic … it’s officially an oligarchy.

The allowance of unlimited campaign spending allows the oligarchs to purchase politicians more directly than ever.    Moreover, there are two systems of justice in Americaone for the big banks and other fatcats, and one for everyone else.

But the private sector is no better … for example, the big banks have turned into criminal syndicates.

Liberals and conservatives tend to blame our country’s problems on different factors … but they are all connected.

The real problem is the malignant, symbiotic relationship between big corporations and big government.

    Dear Washingtonsblog and concerned Contributors, 3/30/2015

    The following is a suggestion for your and your concerned Contributors.

    Obviously and again, thank you Washingtonsblog for your and again continued due diligence and the decades and more of these atrocities, concerns, violations of law and inapposite of the expected public and private trust and behavior and for seemingly and hopefully storage within your//this new Internet Media.

    From my humble and/or layman observation is that sadly and unfortunately and as a concerning issue this week is the Nominee for USA Attorney General, Ms. Loretta Lynch does not appear as the Candidate that will accommodate the required Redemption(s), Reconciliation(s) and Reparation(s) aspects, efforts and endeavors that are required (and I presume and/or suggest mandated)within a Democracy and within the USA Constitution, Bill of Rights and Gettysburg Address…………………

    I will try again to attach a and Article(s) that your readers may consider to convey Facebook, Twitter etcetera to their Families, Friends and their US Executive, Legislative and Judicial Representatives and you have my permission to mention my efforts and endeavors for resolve and that I continue to hope include the Government Accountability Project, Mr. Tom Devine and his former co-worker the National Whistleblower Center, Mr. Stephen M. Kohn and within my 2006, 2009 and 2012 letters to President Obama. US AG Eric Holder and former VA Chief Schensiki and my current Letter and packet to VA Chief McDonald and Chief Gibson.

    Importantly, please allow me to suggest that the Article is first fully and/or substantially read then and importantly, please click on the orange link, ‘deprived their victims of millions of Dollars of restitution’. Please note the Author appears as highly credible and with highly creditable experience.
    As I write hurriedly and I do not completely read and review my blog comment replies and as this a highly serious concern and issue, please allow me and/or others any corrections and/or modifications.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Axel V. Sabersky

    Agreed. And along came Citizens United to give it all legitimacy. Elizabeth Warren shines against this back drop. We need honest people, like William Black, of the S&L wars. Good people don’t go into government. Real patriotism is punished. We need political revival, which requires real leaders….

  • Mar 25, 2015 Ted Cruz: First President of the North American Union?

    Monday marked the start of the Next News Network’s Selection 2016 coverage as Senator Ted Cruz made it official with these colorful words captured by ABC News while speaking at Liberty University

    Ted Cruz says he believes in you… that is why he’s running… but should we believe in him? Just who is Ted Cruz? After my quick hit news report on Monday the youtube comments section erupted.

    Mar 26, 2015 Why You Should Not Vote For Ted Cruz In 2016

    In this video Luke Rudkowski gives an inside look at that 2016 Presidential run of Ted Cruz and why you should not vote for him.

    Sen. Ted Cruz Junior Senator from Texas Republican Serving Jan 3, 2013 – Jan 3, 2019

    These special statistics cover Cruz’s record during the 113th Congress (Jan 3, 2013-Jan 2, 2015) and compare him to other senators also serving at the end of the session.

    August 30 Timeline of the Progress Toward a North American Union

    Canadian, U.S., and Mexican elites, including CEOS and politicians, have a plan to create common North American policies and further integrate our economies. This plan goes by various names and euphemisms, such as “deep integration”, “NAFTA-plus”, “harmonization”, the “Big Idea”, the “Grand Bargain”, and the “North American Security and Prosperity Initiative”. Regardless of which name your prefer, the end goal of all of these plans is to create a new political and economic entity named the North American Union (NAU) that would supercede the existing countries. Theoretically, it would be similar to and competetive with the European Union (EU). The individual currencies of each country would be replaced by a common currency called the “Amero” and everything from environmental regulations to security would be brought in line with a common standard.

    Vive le offers the following timeline as a resource to educate the general public about the progress of the three countries toward a new North American Union (NAU).

    And that’s what you get when you allow government to grow, & grow, & grow.
    Corruption is inevitable. The bigger the government, the more corruption you get.

    Think you own your house? Try not paying your yearly property taxes.
    Think you own your car? Try not paying your yearly “registration fee”.
    On & on it goes. Bend over.

    We work for the government, the government does not work for us.

      I have attached these Articles from the words that the Honorable US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, Ms. Edith Jones spoke and from my review over a decade ago and just yesterday and from 1 or 2 other Articles that mentioned she was a foremost and expected Nominee for our US Supreme Court and more importantly from my perception of the words she spoke in 2003 and that I noted was to 10,000 of her peers of that ‘

      Our Judicial System is corrupt and almost beyond recognition……. What is morally right is routinely sacrificed for what is politically expedient…….. This has come about because we have descended to Nihilism’.

      I also recently noted that the Honorable 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge, Ms. Edith Jones also provided a one sentence or so in reference to the concerns that even if the Parties are successful the Lawyers receive all the money and the successful Litigants receive almost nothing or from my review may actually owe money and to a varied amount of taxes and I presume other considerations.

      Also and importantly I have again attached the US AG Loretta Lynch Nominee and that most importantly should be read.

      I have attached again and in my appreciation as I noted this morning a courageous Republican North Carolina US Senator and both NC Senators are going to Vote ‘NO’ within the US AG Nominee, Ms. Loretta Lynch and despite the reported (and unimaginable) NAACP public protests at the Republican US NC Senate Office.

  • Hey You

    Seems that the country has gotten big enough to allow many corruption activities to be hidden within the sprawling bureaucracy. We are not being well served.


    Read the absolute proof and truth of government corruption. There is no question we were used and abused by the Justice Department and State. Proof is here for all to read with no room for conspiracy theories, just the facts.

  • Percy Linwood Dillard

    The Government constantly allows Satan’s people to use their COINTELPRO, V2K, MEDUSA, and MK-ULTRA technologies against everyone they can. Then misdiagnoses everyone and get paid through our BENEFIT cards that gives us free money we are obligated to have without even signing up to their offerings for it. Quite serious business here.

  • Hogan

    LOL if they think that’s bad just imagine what it’s like on those overseas bases between foreign nationals, contractors and corrupt Federal Employees..I’ve seen it and it’s not pretty.

  • k worth

    We need a hero. You don’t have to believe us, just look at satellite
    photos over our home since 2009!!!!! It will tell you all you need to
    know. We are not under a flight path and over 20 miles from the
    airport. Mr. Michael Huerta of the FAA has a mafia style organization
    going on and is destroying the lives of people who call the airport with
    a noise complaint. We have been made to look like the bad guys by all
    government employees in our county because they are unwilling to go
    against these monsters. We are being played with and have been set up
    by very powerful consummate bullies and our human reactions to this, are
    being held against us. Please read our story. We are over 60 years
    old, been married 30 years, own a home and business in our community,
    have never been in any trouble and we are being spied on, stalked and
    bullied by Alan L. Murphy, Barry Rondinella, Lt. Binning, Jennifer
    Wilson, our police department and Camp Pendleton . We called noise
    complaint at the John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California in
    early 2009 to ask very nicely if the private planes could please stop
    doing stall maneuvers over our homes. Within 15 minutes, Mr. Alan L.
    Murphy was over our home doing figure 8s just above our home and
    driveway where I was still visiting with our neighbor (on whose behalf
    we called). Within one hour, we were being bombarded by every small
    plane in the area and then within three weeks, every jet, helicopter,
    military jet and helicopter and private plane was buzzing our home 24/7
    (our airport opens at 7am and closes at 10pm – we are over 20 miles from
    the airport and not under a flight path). Three other women in our area
    emailed the airport so we had 4 flight paths in less than an 1/4 of a
    mile illegally low for years. Anyone who contacted noise complaint, got
    a flight path over their home. All you have to do is look at satellite
    photos over our home beginning in 2009. It will tell you all you need
    to know. Alan L. Murphy and Barry Rondinella, with help from Lt.
    Binning and the MVPD, became extra vicious towards me because, after we
    saw this pattern of abuse to whomever contacted noise complaint, over 20
    people emailed from our home in one way or another. We have been dive
    bombed on the beach with military helicopters accompanied by Mr. Alan L.
    Murphy’s plane along side so many times, we stopped going! My husband
    has surfed his entire life, so this was quite a loss of quality of
    life. My husband is also an attorney and was a pilot and had a plane at
    SNA. He understands altitudes, recognizes the same planes over and
    over, etc. We believe that Lt. Binning of the Mission Viejo Police
    Department has called our home at night to wake us up (2009), left
    messages on our phone machine with police radio calls for intimidation,
    called our phone machine to repeat the sound we just made in our home.
    If I clap my hands 3 times in our home, they call and clap 3 times on
    our phone machine so we understand we have no privacy. We believe Lt.
    Binning uploaded pornography to our computer this year (2017). We
    understand how crazy this sounds, yet not one person will look into it
    because they then would have to do something about it. Our lives are
    being taken apart and our county and maybe state is so corrupt, they
    would rather file fraudulent documents in court than handle this extreme
    abuse of power designed to cause suicide or cancer. We are being made
    out to look like the bad guys by these corrupt elected officials for
    begging them to do their jobs against other government employees and
    they refuse to do this. Our neighbor calls this Lord of the Flies on
    steroids!! We are stalked every single place we have gone for over 8
    and a half years. We can show you where Mr. Murphy was 30 times in the
    last 5 years. Here’s one example: December 4, 5 & 6 , 2015, Mr.
    Alan L. Murphy and a friend, probably Barry Rondinella, followed us to
    Ojai and dive bombed our hotel, our car, our restaurant, us in the park,
    etc., in a dark grey plane with blue nose and the other in a white
    BeachCraft type. They flew large jets over the middle of town although
    this is a condor preserve and jets are illegal. On Dec. 5, 2015, they
    got the Santa Barbara Coast Guard (huge orange helicopters!) to hover
    right above our heads over the gem fair in Santa Barbara until we left
    (you can see this on satellite photos). We had a friend arrive
    separately and video tape a half hour before we came and half hour after
    we left. They came with us and left with us. Last year on my
    birthday, Dec. 2016, we went to Temecula and Mr. Murphy and Mr.
    Rondinella flew over us and stayed over us at every restaurant, our
    hotel, the jacuzzi, etc. making as much noise as possible. I can tell
    you and show you video of about 100 of these incidents. We tried to find
    another home for 8 months, but Mr. Murphy sent military jets, sometimes
    two at a time, screaming over every appointment we made online to let
    us know we could never get away from him. 27 pages, 4 listings per
    page, all with “JETS” at the top of every one. We had so many agents
    say “we have never had jets over this area”. This is when we realized
    we were being stalked. It took years for us to realize this as no sane
    person expects their government to behave in this way. NO ONE SANE AND
    stopped on 1/28/17, after I wrote to Lt. Binning saying “you can say
    anything you want about the abuse during the day, but you can’t say
    anything about being kept from sleeping for 8 years”. The night flights
    stopped that night. People have told me for years “this is the police
    doing this to you”. I wouldn’t believe it. I have always loved police
    and Sheriff officers because they saved me as a child. We have over 54
    hours of tape from Mr. Rondinella’s first week here in Orange County.
    After stating in the paper that he was going to strictly enforce the
    airport curfew, he flew every single thing he could, including military,
    so low over our homes for 5 days and nights straight 24/7 (remember,
    our airport opens at 7am and closes at 10pm and we are over 20 miles
    away) until he realized we were taping. We have had A & S airport
    vans parked all day across the street from our home. We have tape with
    my husband asking the driver who he is here to pick up, etc., and shows
    him not having a name or address. We have had our electricity turned
    off all day four times this year and will be off all day again on Nov.
    27th. They turned our electricity off twice without notice. We called
    Michael Huerta’s office in May 2014 and told them exactly what
    was going on. Jerry Stanphil all but laughed at us and it got worse.
    Mr. Huerta has been using Camp Pendleton to bully us on a whole new
    level. He will never do the right thing. I have written two books: Path
    of a Monster Crossed, and When Suicide is Homicide. People here are
    too afraid to say anything. Women who are powerful and rich are too
    afraid to tell someone about abuse by Hollywood directors, but everyone
    thinks women who have no power and no money should stand up to the
    military, the FAA and the police department? We are stalked and bullied
    every day in our home, every single time we go anywhere and if we stay
    home, they dive bomb our home with military, private planes, jets,
    helicopters. All anyone would have to do is look at satellite photos of
    the sky over our home and it would be very clear that we are being
    bullied to a degree most people cannot imagine. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS
    tell you all you need to know. We will live in fear for the rest of our
    lives, being hunted. This is America? Please help us now. You don’t
    have to believe us, just look at satellite footage from 2009 – present
    for 22731 Via Santiago, Mission Viejo, CA 92691. No excuse, can’t say
    “we didn’t believe them”. We are being murdered in plain sight and no
    one will do anything about it. Unbelievable. I want to die and have
    tried twice. Please hurry before they accomplish their goal, my death.
    This is bullying, stalking and spying to a degree that causes suicide
    and cancer. Please hurry.
