Re: Corruption in D.C.

That's quite a stretch for even the richest sense of irony, I think.

Eyep, it's quite gut wrenching. What's even more gut wrenching are the idiot sheeple who will believe it.
Corrupt politician lies her ass off on camera. Corrupt MSM doesn't call her out. Stupid sheeple believe.

You just can't put up, our back up your BS, so, just like a little boy, you took your toys and went home. Pathetic. First you have to learn to be a man before you can be a bigger one.

Re: Corruption in D.C.

It's a sad state of affairs, my friends.

Presidential Crimes Then And Now

Quote:
In the US the rule of law, and with it liberty, have been lost. With few exceptions, Americans are too ignorant and unconcerned to do anything about it. The longer the rule of law is set aside, the more difficult it is to reestablish it. Sooner or later the rule of law ceases even as a memory. No candidate in the upcoming election has made the rule of law an issue. Americans, even well informed ones, dramatically over-estimate the knowledge of presidents and the neutrality of the information that is fed to them by the various agencies and advisors. Information is power, and presidents get the information that Washington wants them to receive....

Circus Politics: Will Our Freedoms Survive Another Presidential Election?

Quote:
Stop buying into the lie that your vote matters. The only thing you’re accomplishing by taking part in the “reassurance ritual” of voting is sustaining the illusion that we have a democratic republic. What we have is a dictatorship, or as political scientists Martin Gilens and Benjamin Page more accurately term it, we are suffering from an “economic élite domination.” Of course, we’ve done it to ourselves. The American people have a history of choosing bread-and-circus distractions over the tedious work involved in self-government....

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Is This The Death Of The American Political Establishment?

Quote:
...The establishment is having conniptions. They call Trump whacky and Sanders irresponsible. They charge that Trump’s isolationism and Bernie’s ambitious government programs will stymie economic growth.

The establishment doesn’t get that most Americans couldn’t care less about economic growth because for years they’ve got few of its benefits, while suffering most of its burdens in the forms of lost jobs and lower wages.

Most people are more concerned about economic security and a fair chance to make it.

The establishment doesn’t see what’s happening because it has cut itself off from the lives of most Americans. It also doesn’t wish to understand, because that would mean acknowledging its role in bringing all this on.

Yet regardless of the political fates of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the rebellion against the establishment will continue.

Eventually, those with significant economic and political power in America will have to either commit to fundamental reform, or relinquish their power.

Re: Corruption in D.C.

Well, this is sad and screwed up at the same time. These corrupt politicians have auctioned off your kid's futures to support death and destruction that benefit the globalists.
The average ignorant American citizen (subjects of fed educational system) doesn't have a clue about this. The even more ignorant thing they are entitled to more and more free stuff. It is really just sickening. The end IS near.

US Government Releases 2015 Financial Statements: "Keeps Getting Worse"

Quote:
Hot off the presses, the US government just published its audited financial statements this morning, signed and sealed by Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.

These reports are intended provide an accurate accounting of government finances, just like any big corporation would do.

And once again, the US government’s financial condition has declined significantly from the previous year.

For 2015, the government reports $3.2 trillion in total assets.

This includes everything from financial assets like bank balances to physical assets like tanks, bullets, aircraft carriers, and the federal highway system.

Curiously, the single biggest line item amongst these listed assets is the $1.2 trillion in student loans that are owed to the government by the young people of America.

This is pretty extraordinary when you think about it.

37% of the government’s total reported assets are student loans, which is now considered one of the most precarious bubbles in finance.

$1.2 trillion is similar to the size of the subprime mortgage market back in 2008. And delinquency rates are rising, now at 11.5% according to Federal Reserve data.

Plus, it’s simply astonishing that so much of the federal government’s asset base is tantamount to indentured servitude as young people pay off expensive university degrees that barely land them jobs making coffee at Starbucks.

On the other side of the equation are a reported $21.5 trillion in liabilities, giving the government an official net worth of negative $18.2 trillion.

This is down from last year’s negative $17.7 trillion and $16.9 trillion the year prior. It just keeps getting worse.

But there’s one thing that’s even more incredible about all of this.

You see, each year these financial statements are audited by the government’s in-house agency known as the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

All big companies do this. They publish financial statements, which are then reviewed by an independent audit firm.

Auditors are a critical component of the financial reporting process.

It’s their responsibility to make sure that shareholders and the public can have confidence in a company’s financial statements.

When Apple publishes an annual report, auditors go through all the books of the company and make sure that management is accurately representing the company’s true condition.

Thus when an auditor issues a failing grade, or what’s known as a qualified opinion, there’s usually hell to pay.

At the very hint of impropriety a company’s stock price will tank immediately. People get fired. SEC investigations are launched.

And now based on US securities law and section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act from 2002, senior executives can face criminal charges if their companies receive a failing grade from their auditors.

This is serious stuff.

Yet year after year the GAO gives the federal government a failing grade in its audit report of America’s financial statements.

In this latest report, not only did the GAO chastise the federal government for its “unsustainable fiscal path”, but they state that the federal government consistently fails to prepare “reliable and complete financial information– both for individual federal entities and for the federal government as a whole.”

The Department of Defense, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Department of Agriculture are all singled out for their failure to prepare complete and accurate financial statements.

This is corroborated by a report published last year stating that the Defense Department has somehow “misplaced” $8.5 trillion of taxpayer money over the last 20 years.

The GAO cites other material weaknesses in the government’s reporting of supposed cost reductions in Medicare and Social Security.

In all, the GAO calculates that these financial uncertainties total $27.9 trillion, suggesting that the government’s true financial condition is far worse than reported.

Bottom line– if this were a private company, Barack Obama and Jack Lew would be wearing dayglo orange jumpsuits in court while facing felony fraud charges.

It’s not just the $18.2 trillion in negative net worth. Or the $41+ trillion (by their own calculations) in the Social Security shortfall.

It’s the fact that they can’t even stand in front of the American people with an honest accounting of how pitiful the financial situation really is.

The government of the United States is totally, desperately, hopelessly bankrupt. And they become even more insolvent with each passing year.

Nearly every single dominant superpower throughout history was eventually consumed by its unsustainable finances.

And in their decline from power, bankrupt governments rely on a simple playbook to desperately try to maintain the status quo by every means available.

They destroy freedom. They impose a police and surveillance state. They seize assets. They wage campaigns of violence and intimidation.

They impose capital controls. Cash controls. People controls. Whatever it takes.

This time is not different. The finances of the US government are obvious, as is the trend.

We’re not talking about what ‘might happen’ or ‘could happen’. We’re talking about what IS happening.

And this is not a consequence free environment.

Re: Corruption in D.C.

I only utilize the TV to watch movies. As I was flipping thru the channels, I stumbled across Joe Biden introducing academy award nominees while pitching his political crap and all these Hollywood people clapping, WTH????!
I always knew that Hollywood was in bed w/ the establishment. This goes to show just how desperate the establishment is now. They are definitely afraid of losing control.
