To review past posts on this insanity and idiocy, just click on the first few posts in each month listed to the right of this page. After reviewing just a handful of these insanity posts we think you will agree that we are currently being served by the worst set of American politicians ever to hold office in our entire history.
To kick off this month’s insanity, we reference a recent article on the website of the Washington Weekly News. They recently put together a hall of shame for the corruption and insults to the American taxpayer that many of the Federal government have incurred over the past couple of years.
After going through the list, I think you will have a much better understanding of 1) why nothing ever gets successfully and efficiently accomplished by the Federal government bureaucracy, the employees involved with that useless bureaucracy and the politicians that are supposed to oversee that bureaucracy and 2) how we have gotten to a whopping national debt of $19TRILLION and have nothing to show for it.
The original article can be accessed at:
At that article you can click on other links that verify that the corruption that is being listed actually happened.
Trust me, you will need a strong stomach and low blood pressure to survive the following insults to your wallets and intelligence:
Senior SEC employees and officials were caught surfing the Internet for pornography 8 hours a day on government computers during work hours rather than cracking down on financial illegalities.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission workers were also caught watching Internet pornography on the job rather than protecting us from nuclear plant accidents and meltdowns.
An EPA employee was caught after he had downloaded 7,000 computer files filled with pornography and who also spent upwards of 6 hours a day watching it. This behavior had been going on for years but he never got fired.
Another EPA official harassed at least 16 EPA female co-workers but rather than getting fired he was promoted to a higher paying job where he continued to harass female employees at his new location.
While illegally spying on ordinary Americans and shredding their Fourth Amendment rights, NSA employees passed around sex video and pictures that they had illegally collected from Americans’ computers.
NSA employees were also caught using their expensive, taxpayer funded surveillance equipment and power to spy on girlfriends, mistresses, former wives and others besides eavesdropping on the intimate conversations of overseas American soldiers and their wives back home.
A TSA employee admitted that airport agents regularly share and laugh at nude scans of airport passengers.
Another TSA employee claims that TSA airport screeners make excuses so that they can grope and fondle air travelers that they are attracted to.
The Treasury Department’s inspector general found that Treasury employees surfed erotic websites while on the job, hired prostitutes, and accepted gifts from bank executives, the very people they were supposed to be overseeing and regulating.
The Minerals Management Service, the agency supposedly in charge of protecting us from oil spills, was found to be infested with “a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity” which extended to “sex with industry contacts.”
Drug Enforcement Agency agents had dozens of sex parties with prostitutes who were hired by the drug cartels that DEA agents are supposed to be taking down.
Those same DEA agents were found to also having received money, gifts, and weapons from those same drug cartels.
DEA agents also operated a New Jersey strip club using illegal and undocumented girls, an operation that also included a prostitution operation.
Pentagon employees used government credit cards to pay for prostitutes and to gamble using taxpayer money.
The IRS promoted IRS employees who were also tax cheats or delinquents.
Commodity Futures Trading Commission employees conspired with big banks to manipulate commodities prices.
The SEC has been shredding Wall Street bank documents for decades to help big banks cover up criminal activities.
Former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner allegedly was involved in Lehman Brothers' accounting fraud.
The former chief SEC accountant claims that at least two former Treasury secretaries, Ben Bernanke and Henry Paulson, broke the law.
Different government agencies (The Fed, SEC, FBI, DOJ, and others) and high ranking government officials knew about massive banking fraud long before the Great Recession hit but did nothing about it.
Paulson and Bernanke lied when the said that the big banks receiving TARP money were financially healthy but in truth, were not.
The Washington political class bailed out the banks that caused the Great Recession, sending none of the law breaking bankers to jail, but did nothing for the homeowners that ended up losing their homes as a result of big bank policies and strategies.
A high-level Federal Reserve official claims that the Fed’s quantitative easing programs were "the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time."
Another high ranking American government official in charge of the bank bailouts claimed: “Americans should lose faith in their government. They should deplore the captured politicians and regulators who distributed tax dollars to the banks without insisting that they be accountable. The American people should be revolted by a financial system that rewards failure and protects those who drove it to the point of collapse and will undoubtedly do so again.”
The supposedly non-partisan Government Accountability Office called the Federal Reserve “corrupt and riddled with conflicts of interest.”
Congress audaciously told the courts that Congress cannot be investigated for insider trading.
Congress exempted itself from Obama Care rules even though it was illegal to do so according to the legislation.
The Federal government allegedly covered up health risk and dangers to New Orleans residents as a result of tainted water as a result of Hurricane Katrina.
The Centers For Disease Control allegedly covered up lead poisoning of children in Washington D.C.
The Obama administration went after honest whistleblowers in many cases including an FDA/GE scandal, an FBI anthrax scandal, a Dow Chemical scandal, and a Bank Of America scandal.
$8.6 TRILLION in taxpayer money allocated to the Pentagon has never been accounted for.
The Obama administration has gone after more whistle blowers than all previous Presidential administration COMBINED.
These are just a sample of the government screw ups and insults to the American taxpayer covered in the article. Again, go to the link above to see all of the instances of insults and corruption along with the links to find the original stories.
This should get us started on this month’s political class insanity. It just gets worse and worse every month as the Washington political class continues to undermine our liberty, financial, and economic stability right in front of our faces. Buckle up as the insanity continues over the next week or so.
