Corrupted!: 5 Shocking Examples Of Government Corruption That Will Blow Your Mind

At times it really is breathtaking how corrupted the U.S. government has become.  Government corruption has become so endemic in our society that most people have just kind of accepted it as "normal".  But shouldn't we all get hopping mad when we learn that the Federal Reserve sent billions of dollars in bailout money to addresses in the Cayman Islands?  Shouldn't we all be furious when one of the leading candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, Mitt Romney, declares that he is "not going to spend my time focusing on the Federal Reserve"?  Shouldn't we all be alarmed when Nancy Pelosi gives a speech in which she says that "elections shouldn't matter"?  Shouldn't we all demand that someone be held accountable when we find out that a CBO analysis shows that the "$38.5 billion" in spending cuts will only reduce the budget deficit for this year by $352 million dollars?  On top of everything else, shouldn't we all be absolutely horrified when the TSA gropes little 6 year old girls and virtually none of our politicians demand change?

$38.5 Billion In Budget Cuts Is Really Just $352 Million In Deficit Reduction?

Yesterday I wrote about how a close examination of the "budget cut deal" reveals that the 38.5 billion dollars in budget cuts are largely illusory.

However, even I was not ready for what the Congressional Budget Office had to say about this deal.  What I read in the Washington Post today absolutely floored me.  According to the Washington Post,  the Congressional Budget Office is saying that the budget deal will only cut the budget deficit for this year by less than one percent of what was being claimed by Republican and Democrat leaders....

The Congressional Budget Office estimate shows that compared with current spending rates the spending bill due for a House vote Thursday would pare just $352 million from the deficit through Sept. 30. About $8 billion in cuts to domestic programs and foreign aid are offset by nearly equal increases in defense spending.

What a joke.

The reality is that U.S. government is increasing by over 2 million dollars every single minute.  So the entire "savings" from this "budget deal" will account for approximately 3 hours of government spending.

Look, the U.S. government ran a budget deficit of $188 billion dollars for the month of March alone.  We are in debt up to our eyeballs and it is getting worse at a mind blowing pace.

When are people going to wake up and realize that neither political party is the least bit serious about dealing with our debt problem any time soon?

The Federal Reserve Sent Billions In Bailout Aid To Millionaires and Billionaires In The Cayman Islands

Most Americans don't even understand what the Federal Reserve is, and yet they get to throw trillions of dollars around while being more or less completely unaccountable the entire time.

In a new article for Rolling Stone (which is a must read), Matt Taibbi exposes some of the folks that the Federal Reserve has been sending money to....

The Fed sent billions in bailout aid to banks in places like Mexico, Bahrain and Bavaria, billions more to a spate of Japanese car companies, more than $2 trillion in loans each to Citigroup and Morgan Stanley, and billions more to a string of lesser millionaires and billionaires with Cayman Islands addresses. "Our jaws are literally dropping as we're reading this," says Warren Gunnels, an aide to Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. "Every one of these transactions is outrageous."

How in the world does it benefit the American people to send billions of dollars to some ultra-wealthy people down in the Cayman Islands?

In light of what we have already found out, it is absolutely amazing that Congress is still refusing to authorize a complete audit of the Federal Reserve.

The corruption of the Fed is crying out to be investigated.

Unfortunately, many of our top politicians are openly declaring that they have no intention of going after the Federal Reserve.

Mitt Romney Declares That He Will Not Be Going After Ben Bernanke Or The Federal Reserve

In case anyone needs one more sign that Mitt Romney is just another shill for the establishment, just check out the two statements by Romney below.

According to Politico, Romney recently told CNBC's Larry Kudlow that he is not concerned about the Federal Reserve at all....

"I think Ben Bernanke is a student of monetary policy; he's doing as good a job as he thinks he can do," Romney said when Kudlow asked what kind of job Bernanke is doing. "I'm not going to spend my time going after Ben Bernanke. I'm not going to spend my time focusing on the Federal Reserve."

That's just great.  The Republican candidate with perhaps the greatest amount of "establishment support" says that he thinks that Bernanke is doing a good job and he does not plan to spend any time focusing on the Federal Reserve.

So if Romney gets in the Federal Reserve will continue to be able to dish out trillions to their friends without any interference.

Nancy Pelosi Declares That "Elections Shouldn't Matter"

How are we supposed to respond when the top Democrat in the House of Representatives declares that "elections shouldn't matter as much as they do"?

During a recent speech, Pelosi implored establishment Republicans to "take back your party" so that elections won't "matter" as much....

To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors. Because there are so many things at risk right now — perhaps in another question I’ll go into them, if you want. But the fact is that elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do… But when it comes to a place where there doesn’t seem to be shared values then that can be problematic for the country, as I think you can see right now.

Apparently what Pelosi wants is for America to go back to a time when all of us just went along with the false left/right paradigm and when we were all content to sleep while the establishment agenda rolled right along.

Well guess what Nancy?  Some of us are starting to wake up.

6 Year Old Girl Molested By The TSA

How far have we fallen as a nation when a 6 year old girl has to have her private areas touched in public by the TSA before she is allowed to get on an airplane?

America is becoming a very strange place.

The following is video that was posted on YouTube of the recent incident involving a 6 year old girl....

So is this what we have become as a nation?

Will we subject ourselves to anything as long as the authorities insist that it will keep us a little bit safer?

Pretty soon America is going to be unrecognizable.

I have previously written about how in one town in Missouri, girls scouts have actually been banned from selling girl scout cookies in their own front yards.

How crazy is that?

In Cleveland, authorities haves announced plans to have "trash supervisors" go snooping through trash cans to ensure that people are actually recycling according to city guidelines.

The control freaks we keep voting into office seem to have an obsession with running ever detail of our lives.

In many areas of the nation we aren't even allowed to do acts of kindness anymore.

For example, in Houston, Texas a couple named Bobby and Amanda Herring that had been feeding homeless people for over a year has been banned by the city from doing so.

So what is next?

Are they going to ban kids from taking lunches to school?

It is already happening....

At one public school in the Chicago area, children have been banned from bringing their lunches from home.  Instead, it is mandatory that they eat the food that the cafeteria serves.

Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve gets to create trillions of dollars out of thin air and they get to send it to whoever they want.

What a country we have, eh?

Our system has become corrupted beyond all recognition.  Government corruption is out of control and it is getting worse with each passing day.

So when are the American people going to get sick of all this nonsense?

When are....

Wait.

American Idol is on tonight.

Perhaps all of this can just wait for another time.

After all, who wants to miss what J-Lo and Steven Tyler are going to say tonight?

Those two are really a couple of characters!

Our leaders know what they are doing, right?

We can trust our politicians to act in our best interest, right?

So instead of writing about all of this "doom and gloom", perhaps I should just lighten up and focus on fun things like American Idol a little bit more.

What do all of you think?

    I don’t belong to any political party, I’ve never voted because nothing ever changes, its the same corruption no matter who takes office. I know of many others my age who feel exactly the same but also feel we can’t do anything about it, so why bother? I’m done just listening and reading about it. Someone just please tell me what can be done about it! Or are we limited to just complaining?

    At Join America Again, 15 million Tea Party Members as well as millions of other citizens, who are fed up with the corruption can do something about it. Their Indictment Engine will expose the corruption of every senator and congressman and prepare a criminal complaint for every members perspective elected official, where you can notarize it and file it by certified mail in your State court. Thousands of criminal complaints will hit at once. They will face a variety of charges including, racketeering, fraud, conspiracy, dereliction of duty, violating their sworn oath to protect and preserve our Constitution and in the case of approving any treaty that violates the Constitution, may be charged with treason. This is going to happen early in 2013 after the elections. If they fight the charges in State court and are convicted, they will serve time in our fine State prisons. If they plead guilty, some may receive a probated sentence, with the terms being to follow the America Again agenda of shrinking the federal kleptocracy to the provisions listed on the website. We need every patriot who loves our country to help preserve our freedoms and lock these criminals in prison where they belong. Elections don’t matter as most are lawyers gaming the corrupt system they created. Thanks, Mark

    The pat down should have been avoidable by going through the detectors they have, plus what does the TSA say about getting a toddler through appropriately.

    There’s a reason they’re not going after the Federal Reserve. The Fed is like the mafia boss to the US Government. Any time the government needs money, they get it from the Fed. They’re the puppet masters that pull the strings of society.

    I wish I could be President for a term. I’d probably be **************** by the CIA, but I’d pick Lady Liberty back up and put this country back on its feet. First thing I’d do: Repeal the NDAA bill. Second thing I’d do: Pass a bill that would not allow any other laws currently or ever made to again conflict with the US Constitution or Bill of Rights. Third thing I do: Stop buying Chinese made parts for our countries defense systems.

    You people are all fools, lol you think its the government, its all the republicans who are cutting taxes for themsleves and imposing higher taxes on the poor and middle class. The rich republican politicians are scumbags who only care about themselves and their money. They dont care about anyone else. Mitt Romeny made a comment saying he didnt care about 47 percent of america, right Mitt., wont be voting for you , cause you dont care about 47 percent of the country.

      You’re pretty naive to this this. The problem is that you’ll remain naive until it becomes absolutely obvious that you’re naive. You approach arguments as a fight to win, not an opportunity to learn. The national debt has gone up 9.4% a year consistently since 1971. During this time we’ve had Republican and Democratic presidents as well as congress. It will go up 9.4% a year on average until the dollar collapses. Tax revenue is now less than 15% of the national debt today. You won’t have to wait long until the dollar collapses.

    I just read a book that has a lot of suggestions on how to fix this abortion we call a Congress. It’s written by a former Green Beret and it’s called Undermining Tyrants and is available on Amazon. The operation detailed in the book is very do-able, and it would have the desired effect without us having to fight another bloody civil war.

    Now it is time for a new revolution in the United States: it needs a new government that should eliminate bureaucracy mess by toughen gun laws, cut taxes, and create Jobs. The current U.S. Government, that is causing corruption should be ousted, like what happened in East Germany, Yugoslavia, U.S.S.R.,or Romania in the years past. ,
    This new government in the United States should be a Prime Minister, instead of a president (similar to Canada or the UK), instead of a president, and should become a kingdom instead of the republic.
    The United States needs a new flag, similar to the state of Hawaii’s, or the Grand Union flag with the Union Jack in the canton, which could or should be a part of the peaceful political revolution in the United States in the Future by cleaning up politics in America and lowering costs of Gas food, and create jobs, and to reduce violence in the United States.,

      Your nuts, I don’t bow to a KING other than King Jesus. What we need is to oust everyone in DC and start over. If we ever give up our guns someone like Hitler, or a follower of Carl Marks will take over and sure enough we’ll have corruption. I believe they want us to be slaves to the state, look at our police forces, They look like commandos not protectors and servants of the public.

    As long as Big money interests are allowed to buy favor with our politicians things will not change. I believe that every candidate should be allocated a certain amount of money to spend on their campaigns by the government. No more special interest groups buying our elections. If the candidate runs out of money before they are elected, then it is a big indicator of their fiscal management and should be a red flag to voters. Lobbying should be illegal and any politician that takes money from special interests should be prosecuted.

  • jake the fighter

    everyone here is right, the government is corrupt, but we need more celebrities to join the fight, more controversial figures who join the struggle to make sure our opinions are heard, cause right now, the government is ignoring us because we are not in the 1%, wheres a 2pac when you need him. watch, we will all probably be in hot water with the government for our posts under the patriot act, sorry excuse for a government

    they want you to focus on american idol so you stop focusing on your american life. television is a form of control. it’s a distraction.
    the media feeds people the version of the story the people in control want the masses to see.

    example of how awful it is:
    those in control also control us with oil, but the resource is drying up, and there are too many alternatives surfacing/coming into the mainstream. the next form of control is your water. they will buy all the land with sources of drinkable water, and sell it back to us for an increased fee. blue gold. and we can’t find an alternative for water, it is what supports all lifeforms.
    these people in power are disgusting, and not what they seem to be.
    they will literally control life – or where life exists, by controlling the distribution of water. and we will pay for it.
    wait for it. it’ll happen.

    not going to lie, but the planet will be much better off once we kill ourselves off.
    this is no pessimism, just straight realism.
    we are cancer to this planet – or rather, our greed for power and wealth leads to our being cancerous.

    we can live with the earth healthily and naturally, but we are so deep in a state of being controlled by people who refuse to work with the environment, but rather turn it into a wasteland.

    quite sad

    Writers of articles like this are Canadians and not true americans. What about catholic corruption in America? What about talking of corruption of black people being purchased to give votes to the black canadian unions? Why those fox always get united to complain about what the government is spending in the budget against some pigs of the real corruption?

  • guy

    That little girl incident is not at all bad. it was 30 seconds of making sure people were not stupid/smart enough to hide something in their child. Which is definitely not above Americans. We think the government is corrupt, well FYI, people are. everyone does something or other in their lives that are classified as corrupt. You all complain about our leaders being corrupt people well guess who put them their… that’s right WE DID, with our voting right which in matter of fact is a privilege given to us by the gov. that few countries have. why don’t you all go home and sleep in your bed, in your safe house, and be thankful for the crap our government has given us, and the fact that it’s not a dictatorship.

    They have made a mockery of our constitution and a befoolry of Uncle Sam. They pass legislation that poisons our families and prevents cures. I’m sick. Sick of babies dying. Sick of the pilfering. Sick from the lies. But we the people have the anti-venom. Our great forefathers garunteed this, and our rolling over in their graves as we idley stand by refusing to administer it. The American dream isn’t keeping up with the Jones’, the American dream is the freedom we are garunteed by the Constitution, and our Declaration of Independence. Let this brain washing end now! Our future depends on it.
    I pledge allegiance to the flag, and TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, one nation, INDIVISIBLE, with liberty; AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. E Plurbius Unum.

  • a kid with a clue

    With the way everyone is talking it sounds like a civil war is coming. And i agree things need to change but I don’t think they should be changed physically or forcefully I believe there needs to be a moral change throughout the world and most definitely in the united states. We have lost our souls in the pursuit of the dollar, a piece of paper we have convinced ourselves is worth so much. What is a man if he sells out his beliefs his morals his heart and his word for money and power? A small piece of advice for any politican when it comes down to the wire and you have no material posessions left, your word is the only thing that can never be taken away from you treat it as such.

    You cannot be mad at a dog for biting. It is in the very core of his nature, as corrpution is in the very core of being a politician. Instead, the fault is our own for letting it get to this point. Now, the greater question remains. Will “we” fix it?
