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 Observer.com and GlobalResearch.ca 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 Observer.com 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.

    Sincerely,
    Axel
    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….

    This is one of George Washington’s best — which means it’s one of the Web’s all-time best — news reports.

    How do I contact Washington’s Blog directly? There’s no contact information anywhere.

    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.

    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 Canada.ca 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 Observer.com 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.

  • http://murderontheandamansea.com/

    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.
