Re: Corruption in D.C.

Here's another fine example of the trash that inhabit the innards of monster that feeds upon us.


Sex-Partying, Teen-Hooker-Funding DEA Agents Get Slap On Wrist, None Fired


Quote:
A summary of the internal report shows the DEA doled out punishments to 10 of its agents, which ranged from a letter of caution to a two-week suspension. None of the agents who participated in the parties was fired. Re. Elijah Cummings exclaimed, the report depicted “truly breathtaking recklessness” and showed “DEA agents as completely out of control," lamenting “Hello? Am I missing something? I think we are at an all-time low here." We suspect it can get a lot lower yet.

Imagine what would happen if a group from the US military were busted in the same way. Gen. Petrayus comes to mind.

Well in their defense if you are going to have a sex party, prostitutes are a good choice

American Justice? FBI Lab Overstated 95% Of Forensic Hair Matches (Including 32 Death Sentences)

Quote:
The American justice system is broken. Completely and totally broken... "The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000."

Epic rant! Soul sister telling it like it is!

"***** This Court": Woman Who Took AK-47 To Jailbreak Pens Epic Rant Against Judge

Quote:
A woman who was arrested for allegedly plotting to break her husband out of jail pens an expletive-ridden tirade against a judge who dismissed her $10 billion lawsuit against the state. She also included an eloquent tax manifesto for good measure....
Read the comments, you'll learn something.

Top NSA Official Who Created the Global Surveillance System: Fire the U.S. Intelligence Agencies … Hire Anonymous, Instead

Quote:
William Binney is the high-level NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information. A 32-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, Binney was the senior technical director within the agency and supervised thousands of NSA employees.

Binney sent Washington’s Blog an article from Monday showing that a member of the cyber collective Anonymous tipped off Texas police to the imminent shootings by Muslim extremists.

Binney comments:

This is the objective of intelligence agencies that I worked in – predict intentions and capabilities in advance. I agree with my VIPS [i.e. Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity] associates, hire Anonymous and fire the bums we got including the intelligence committees and the FISC [U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court].



After all, when was the last time our “intelligence community” predicted anything like this in advance????

Binney and other top NSA whistleblowers have previously explained that the intelligence agencies should have stopped 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Paris shootings and other terrorist attacks. But corruption prevented them from stopping the attacks.

Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity – a group composed of former high-level military and intelligence officials – recently called for independent intelligence analysis to keep our country safe.

What The US Government Spends Its Money On, Besides Hookers And Gambling

Quote:
The one most interesting category was defense spending: a category despised by progressives even though at this rate spending on interest for the progressives' beloved government debt will soon eclipse defense. It is here that outlays actually dropped from a year ago, declining to just over $150 billion for the quarter. Which is surprising, because as Politico wrote overnight, among the items funded by general taxpayer revenue were such discretionary expenses as hookers and blackjack, after a defense department audit founds that Pentagon employees used their government credit cards to gamble and pay for “adult entertainment.” ...

Re: Corruption in D.C.

There's links for all these assertions in the original link

America’s Main Problem: Corruption

Quote:
Preface: Sadly, in the month since we last posted on this topic, many new examples of corruption have arisen.

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
Nuclear Regulatory Commission workers watch porn instead of cracking down on unsafe conditions at nuclear plants
An EPA employee who downloaded 7,000 porn files, then spent 2-6 hours each workday watching porn. He's been doing it for years ... but the EPA never fired him. Another EPA employee harassed 16 women co-workers ... and then was promoted to a higher-paying job with more responsibility, where he harassed more women
NSA spies pass around homemade sexual videos and pictures they've collected from spying on the American people
NSA employees have also been caught using their mass surveillance powers to spy on love interests, such as girlfriends, obsessions or former wives … and to eavesdrop on American soldiers’ intimate conversations with their wives back home. And see this (“routinely shared salacious or tantalizing phone calls that had been intercepted” … “‘Hey, check this out … there’s good phone sex'”)
An employee of the Transportation Security Administration admitted that TSA agents share – and laugh at – nude scans of passengers. Another TSA employee says that screeners make excuses so they can grope and fondle travelers that they're attracted to
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)
Pentagon employees used government credit cards to pay for adult "escorts" (i.e. prostitutes) and to gamble
Federal agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration and Secret Service investigating Bitcoin money laundering extorted and stole over $1 million in Bitcoin
The IRS gave promotions to employees who were themselves tax cheats
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has conspired with big banks to manipulate commodities prices for decades
The government-sponsored rating agencies committed massive fraud (and see this)
The Treasury department allowed banks to “cook their books”
Regulators knew of and allowed the use of debt-hiding accounting tricks by the big banks
The Secretary of Treasury (Tim Geithner) was complicit in Lehman’s accounting fraud, (and see this)
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
A high-level Federal Reserve official says quantitative easing is “the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time”
The SEC has been shredding Wall Street documents for decades to help the big banks cover up their fraud
The non-partisan Government Accountability Office calls the Fed corrupt and riddled with conflicts of interest. Nobel prize-winning economist Joe Stiglitz says the World Bank would view any country which had a banking structure like the Fed as being corrupt and untrustworthy. The former vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas said said he worried that the failure of the government to provide more information about its rescue spending could signal corruption. “Nontransparency in government programs is always associated with corruption in other countries, so I don’t see why it wouldn’t be here,” he said
Arguably, both the Bush and Obama administrations broke the law by refusing to close insolvent banks
Congress may have covered up illegal tax breaks for the big banks
Police have been busted framing innocent people
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
$8.5 TRILLION dollars in taxpayer money doled out by Congress to the Pentagon since 1996 has NEVER been accounted for. The military wastes and "loses" trillions of dollars. And Congress pushes expensive boondoggles that our generals say are unnecessary and unhelpful ... because it's pork for their district
The government lied when it said it doesn't conduct mass surveillance on Americans, and then lied again when it said that spying was aimed at protecting America against terrorists
The government also lied when it said American doesn't torture (and see this), and then lied once again when it said torture was aimed at protecting America against terrorists
The government made sure that false claims were made about the amount of oil spilled by BP in the Gulf
The government has framed whistleblowers with false evidence
The Pentagon falsely smeared USA Today reporters because they investigated illegal Pentagon propaganda
When one of the most respected radiologists in America – the former head of the radiology department at Yale University – attempted to blow the whistle on the fact that the FDA had approved a medical device manufactured by General Electric because it put out massive amounts of radiation, the FDA installed spyware to record his private emails and surfing activities (including installing cameras to snap pictures of his screen), and then used the information to smear him and other whistleblowers
In an effort to protect Bank of America from the threatened Wikileaks expose of wrongdoing – the Department of Justice told Bank of America to a hire a specific hardball-playing law firm to assemble a team to take down WikiLeaks (and see this)
The Bush White House worked hard to smear CIA officers, bloggers and anyone else who criticized the Iraq war
Corruption at the FBI lab led to the execution of scores of innocent people
The FBI smeared top scientists who pointed out the numerous holes in its anthrax case. Indeed, the head of the FBI's investigation agrees that corruption was rampant
Terror attacks such as 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing and the Texas shooting all happened because of pervasive corruption in our intelligence agencies
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....

Pentagon Staff Given "Stern Warning" After Using Government Credit Cards For Hookers & Gambling

Quote:
We can now add another to the list of government agencies out of control this month. In the latest example of abuse by the unaccountable feds, we learn that Pentagon employees have been caught using their government credit cards on gambling and escorts, amongst other things. Their punishment? A “stern warning.”...

Caught On Tape: Stunned Reporter Grills State Department Why Hillary's Breaches Won't Be Investigated


Quote:
The most shocking development took place yesterday when the US State Department, via spokesman Jeff Rathke, told reporters that while it "regrets" that it did not get to review the new foreign government funding, it does not plan to look into the matter further, spokesman Jeff Rathke said on Thursday. "The State Department has not and does not intend to initiate a formal review or to make a retroactive judgment about items that were not submitted during Secretary Clinton's tenure," Rathke told reporters. And while the "unbiased" media kept its mouth shut, on person who did speak up was AP's Matt Lee who asked why the State Department wouldn't investigate further to determine if the tens of millions of dollars in donations had influenced her decisions while she was SecState...

One private contractor group was known for making sure their guys were "taken care of".I guess that was part of the benefits package.
