June, 2017, Part 9, Political Class Insanity: Congressional Crimes and Insanity and More

As we do every month, we review the latest idiocy, lunacy, ineptness, and general insanity from the American political class. We are getting started as little late this month since we needed to review the latest global warming.climate change insanity from the likes of Al Gore, culminating in our review of the 26 reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for Trump to pull us out of the Paris Climate Agreement:

But let’s quickly get into this month’s political class insanity because over the past month or so there has been a lot of it was Washington implodes into a useless pile of incompetence:

1) If Nancy Pelosi is the best source of political class insanity for this blog, Sheila Jackson Lee, a Congresswoman from Texas, might be a close runner up. This is a member of Congress who erroneously thinks that the Constitution is about 400 years old, who thinks that South Vietnam and North Vietnam STILL exist as separate countries, and who wondered out loud if a Mars on surface vehicle would be driving anywhere near where Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.

Joe Schoffstall, writing for the Washington Free Beacon on May 30, 2017, brings up to date with the latest political class insanity from Congresswoman Lee:
  • According to research by the Washington Free Beacon, Lee allegedly and illegally used campaign funds to purchase tickets to the Super Bowl.
  • She then posted pictures of herself partying at the Super Bowl on her website.
  • The pictures were subsequently taken down once the Beacon report came out.
  • The report found that almost $10,000 of campaign funds were allegedly used to purchase Super Bowl tickets: “Three days before the event, Jackson Lee's campaign disbursed $4,900 to 21st Century Fox for Super Bowl tickets. A second transaction was made days after the game when Jackson Lee's campaign reimbursed Gerald Womack, her campaign manager, $4,900 for tickets.”
  • On the day of the Super Bowl, Lee posted a picture of herself at the stadium on her Instagram account:

  • The photo was taken down soon after the Beacon went public with the campaign fund allegations.
  • Since members of Congress are strictly prohibited from using campaign funds for personal use, the Congresswoman has some explaining to do.
Just another politician likely using and abusing the system and taxpayer wealth for their own greedy, unethical, and possibly illegal purposes.

2) Uncountable times we have pointed out how massive Federal government programs like Medicare and Social Security are so inept and infested with criminal fraud that untold trillions of dollars have likely been paid out incorrectly or criminally over the years. As a result, the programs are currently in fiscal distress and face massive problems in the coming years.

Unfortunately, it does not look like the politicians in Washington are getting the problem under control according to as recent report coming out of the Social Security Administration:
  • A recent audit found that the Social Security Administration (SSA) erroneously paid out over $1 billion in benefits to people that did not have Social Security numbers.
  • These are people that should not be able to get any kind of SSA benefits at all but instead the Federal bureaucracy gave them over $1 billion.
  • According to the SSA inspector general: “[U]nless it [SSA] takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay about $182.5 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees who do not have an SSN or paper application supporting their selection.”
  • Since 2004, the SSA has paid out $853.1 million to these so-called representative payees that had been terminated by the SSA.
Just another day and another couple of hundred billion taxpayer dollars down the drain due to political and bureaucratic bungling in D.C.

3) One last piece of political class insanity for today and for this month, I cannot take any more. This piece of insanity comes to us from the I Have The Truth website in an article written by Kay Francis on June 1, 2017:
  • Although Alcee Hastings is only one of six Federal judges to ever be removed from his post by Congress, he is somehow currently a U.S. Congressman from Florida.
  • His removal was the result of being busted for asking for a bribe of $150,000 in exchange for favorable treatment in a racketeering case that was before him in court.
  • The House of Representatives voted 413 to 3 to have him removed from his judge position, kind of an overwhelming indictment of his guilt.
  • Did I mention that even after this crime and removal from the bench he got elected to Congress?!
  • He is again in trouble for shady dealings in that he has been giving his girlfriend the maximum allowed taxpayer funded salary for five years to “work” in his field office.
  • Oh yeah, to work in is field office she received over $168,000 a year, three times the median household income.
  • Oh yeah, he was also sued by Judicial Watch in their support of a former employee who accused him of repeated sexual harassment.
  • Despite his despicable behavior over time, he had the nerve to accuse fellow Congressmen of being “nasty to the poor.”
  • Hastings also employs the wife of a former staff person who has been convicted for money laundering.
Did I mention that he is currently serving in Congress despite the above infractions and crimes? Only in America.

That will do it for today and this month. More insanity sure to come the same time next month.
