The Corruption That is Rampant in DC


Recommended Posts

This whole impeachment charade and other dog and pony farcical shows to distract the sheople by the corrupt crooked politicians in DC (both arms of the corporate party are guilty) reminds me of the joke about the woman in the dentist chair:

Then there's the woman who goes to the dentist. As he leans over to begin working on her, she grabs his balls.

The dentist says, "Madam, I believe you've got a hold of my privates."

The woman replies, "Yes. We're going to be careful not to hurt each other, aren't we."

 

WOW – OAN Stunning Lutsenko Interview – Outlines: Marie Yovanovitch Perjury, George Kent Impeachment Motive, Lindsey Graham Motive to Bury Investigation…

Posted on December 8, 2019 by sundance

In a fantastic display of true investigative journalism, One America News journalist Chanel Rion tracked down Ukrainian witnesses as part of an exclusive OAN investigative series. The evidence being discovered dismantles the baseless Adam Schiff impeachment hoax and highlights many corrupt motives for U.S. politicians.

Ms. Rion spoke with Ukrainian former Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who outlines how former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch perjured herself before Congress.

.

What is outlined in this interview is a  problem for all DC politicians across both parties.  The obviously corrupt influence efforts by U.S. Ambassador Yovanovitch as outlined by Lutsenko were not done independently.

Senators from both parties participated in the influence process and part of those influence priorities was exploiting the financial opportunities within Ukraine while simultaneously protecting Joe Biden and his family.  This is where Senator John McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham were working with Marie Yovanovitch.

Imagine what would happen if all of the background information was to reach the general public?  Thus the motive for Lindsey Graham currently working to bury it.

You might remember George Kent and Bill Taylor testified together.

It was evident months ago that U.S. chargé d’affaires to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, was one of the current participants in the coup effort against President Trump.  It was Taylor who engaged in carefully planned text messages with EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland to set-up a narrative helpful to Adam Schiff’s political coup effort.

Bill Taylor was formerly U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine (’06-’09) and later helped the Obama administration to design the laundry operation providing taxpayer financing to Ukraine in exchange for back-channel payments to U.S. politicians and their families.

In November Rudy Giuliani released a letter he sent to Senator Lindsey Graham outlining how Bill Taylor blocked VISA’s for Ukrainian ‘whistle-blowers’ who are willing to testify to the corrupt financial scheme.

Unfortunately, as we are now witnessing, Senator Lindsey Graham, along with dozens of U.S. Senators currently serving, may very well have been recipients for money through the aforementioned laundry process.  The VISA’s are unlikely to get approval for congressional testimony, or Senate impeachment trial witness testimony.

U.S. senators write foreign aid policy, rules and regulations thereby creating the financing mechanisms to transmit U.S. funds.  Those same senators then received a portion of the laundered funds back through their various “institutes” and business connections to the foreign government offices; in this example Ukraine. [ex. Burisma to Biden]

The U.S. State Dept. serves as a distribution network for the authorization of the money laundering by granting conflict waivers, approvals for financing (think Clinton Global Initiative), and permission slips for the payment of foreign money.   The officials within the State Dept. take a cut of the overall payments through a system of “indulgence fees”, junkets, gifts and expense payments to those with political oversight.

If anyone gets too close to revealing the process, writ large, they become a target of the entire apparatus.  President Trump was considered an existential threat to this entire process.  Hence our current political status with the ongoing coup.

Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator John McCain meeting with corrupt Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko in December 2016.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out, because, well, in reality all of the U.S. Senators (both parties) are participating in the process for receiving taxpayer money and contributions from foreign governments.

A “Codel” is a congressional delegation that takes trips to work out the payments terms/conditions of any changes in graft financing.  This is why Senators spend $20 million on a campaign to earn a job paying $350k/year.  The “institutes” is where the real foreign money comes in; billions paid by governments like China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Ukraine, etc. etc.  There are trillions at stake.

[SIDEBAR: Majority Leader Mitch McConnell holds the power over these members (and the members of the Senate Intel Committee), because McConnell decides who sits on what committee.  As soon as a Senator starts taking the bribes lobbying funds, McConnell then has full control over that Senator.  This is how the system works.]

The McCain Institute is one of the obvious examples of the financing network.  And that is the primary reason why Cindy McCain is such an outspoken critic of President Trump.  In essence President Trump is standing between her and her next diamond necklace; a dangerous place to be.

So when we think about a Senate Impeachment Trial; and we consider which senators will vote to impeach President Trump, it’s not just a matter of Democrats -vs- Republican.  We need to look at the game of leverage, and the stand-off between those bribed Senators who would prefer President Trump did not interfere in their process.

McConnell has been advising President Trump which Senators are most likely to need their sensibilities eased.   As an example President Trump met with Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski in November.  Senator Murkowski rakes in millions from the multinational Oil and Gas industry; and she ain’t about to allow horrible Trump to lessen her bank account any more than Cindy McCain will give up her frequent shopper discounts at Tiffanys.

Senator Lindsey Graham announcing today that he will not request or facilitate any impeachment testimony that touches on the DC laundry system for personal financial benefit (ie. Ukraine example), is specifically motivated by the need for all DC politicians to keep prying eyes away from the swamps’ financial endeavors.  WATCH:

.

This open-secret system of “Affluence and Influence” is how the intelligence apparatus gains such power. All of the DC participants are essentially beholden to the various U.S. intelligence services who are well aware of their endeavors.

There’s a ton of exposure here (blackmail/leverage) which allows the unelected officials within the CIA, FBI and DOJ to hold power over the DC politicians. Hold this type of leverage long enough and the Intelligence Community then absorbs that power to enhance their self-belief of being more important than the system.

Perhaps this corrupt sense of grandiosity is what we are seeing play out in how the intelligence apparatus views President Donald J Trump as a risk to their importance.

FUBAR !

Please notice there is NO evidence presented to corroborate Buffalo's claims. 

We have a lot of evidence on our side, however. 

If you referring to the illegal coup against trumpy, there is no evidence. Hearsay and conjecture are NOT evidence.

Put an end to this shit... Vote PROGRESSIVE

So, the dim-0-crats are possibly less corrupt or maybe the deep state bureauweenies and appointed judges have historically all been dim-0-craps and just overlooked that corruption. The crooked, corrupt many titted empress and her slick willie come to mind in dim-0-crap crimes being swept under the rug.

Or could it be a highly slanted methodology used that overlooked MANY dim-0-crap crimes that resulted in resignations instead of preosecution.

 

POSTED BY: MEME POLICEMAN NOVEMBER 2, 2017

Republican vs democrat corruption memeCourtesy of Occupy Democrats, with over 17,000 likes and 23,000 shares. This meme, along with many similar ones, use these statistics to paint the Republicans as the party of corruption, while the Democrats have hardly a scratch on their record. This portrayal is dishonest and relies on cherry-picked statistics, without providing context to the viewer.

The Methodology

The statistics in the meme appear to come from this article by The Daily Kos, which uses the Wikipedia page “List of federal political scandals” as its source. This page documents the many scandals by both parties, but the Kos article only includes scandals that involved the executive branch and that resulted in an indictment or conviction. This results in lopsided numbers against Republicans, but a closer look reveals this tells us little about the corruption and criminal activity levels among each political party.

To highlight the problem of this methodology, by the article’s own admission, President Nixon wasn’t counted, since he didn’t get charged with a crime. Thus, the President behind one of the largest political scandal in U.S. history isn’t even counted! Neither is President Clinton’s lying under oath. Clear criminal behavior by both presidents isn’t included in the methodology, but few would argue these weren’t instances of criminal behavior.

Additionally, there were many scandals under the Obama Administration listed in the Wikipedia page that resulted in resignations, but weren’t prosecuted. There were also high-profile scandals in the legislative realm this methodology ignores, like the bribery conviction of Senator Menendez, the felony count of fraud for Jesse Jackson Jr., and the sexting saga and ultimate conviction of Congressman Anthony Weiner. And, of course, the recent admission from former DNC chair Donna Brazile, of corruption in the 2016 campaign at the highest levels.

Other Methodologies

Republican vs. Democrat crimes meme

Another similar meme with 22,000 likes and 21,000 shares

If we’re trying to compare parties, shouldn’t we take a broader look at corruption and criminal charges among them? It turns out if we look at different Wikipedia pages and expand our scope, the narrative begins to change. For example, on the page titled  “List of American federal politicians convicted of crimes” we find 49 Republicans convicted of crimes compared to 41 Democrats, going back to Nixon. Considering over that period Republican occupied the executive branch for 28 years vs 20 years for Democrats, and that 11 of those convictions were for Watergate alone, the numbers seem to be fairly equal between the parties. Certainly not as lopsided as what the meme portrays.

Another Wikipedia page titled “List of United States federal officials convicted of corruption offenses” finds a lopsided number of convictions for Democrats. 27 were convicted of corruption, compared to 18 Republicans.  If we only include the Nixon years or later, the convictions number 22 for Democrats compared to just 8 for Republicans. This means, if one were inclined, they could claim Democrats are almost 3 times as likely to be convicted of corruption charges than Republicans. This is how statistics can be molded to fit any narrative.

If we look at a more objective methodology, like this study from NYU professor Sanford Gordon, we also find unfavorable statistics for Democrats. This study looked at corruption charges, including state and local politicians, under periods of the Clinton and Bush years. In total, the study found 133 Democrats prosecuted for corruption charges compared with just 51 Republicans (page 19). In fact, the study even explained this discrepancy by pointing out that Democrats were concentrated in urban areas and “may have access to more substantial opportunities for corruption” (page 33). Again, if one were inclined, they could spin this study to say “Democrats are 2.6 times as likely to be charged with corruption”.

Conclusion

While the statistics cited in these memes appear to be correct, they do not prove in any way that Republicans are more corrupt than Democrats. Using different methodologies, one could just as easily show that Democrats are more corrupt. Instead, what should be illuminating is to peruse those Wikipedia pages and see how many scandals and convictions there are on both sides. That should be enough to make one hesitant to become a cheerleader for either party.

 

 

YOUR STILL A DISINGENUOUS MOONBATTY ASSSHOLE, BEANER!!!

Comparing scandals by party

Just glancing at the chart above, it’s pretty clear which administrations are the most criminal, but let’s roll up the data anyway.

EXECUTIVE BRANCH CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES BY PARTY SINCE 1968
ADMINISTRATION

TOTAL YEARS

IN OFFICE

CRIMINAL

INDICTMENTS

CRIMINAL

CONVICTIONS

PRISON

SENTENCES

DEMOCRATIC 20 3 1 1
REPUBLICAN 28 120 89 34

Some might try to argue that this unfairly penalizes Republican administrations because GOP administrations held office for eight more years than Democratic administrations during this time period. The huge gap between the numbers shows how ridiculous that is, but even so, let’s get the averages per year of combined administrations:

AVERAGE EXECUTIVE BRANCH CRIMINAL ACTIONS BY YEAR SINCE 1968
ADMINISTRATION

AVERAGE #

INDICTMENTS

PER YEAR

AVERAGE #

CONVICTIONS

PER YEAR

AVERAGE #

IMPRISONMENTS

PER YEAR

DEMOCRATIC 0.15 0.05 0.05
REPUBLICAN 4.29 3.18 1.21

 

 

Even when we standardize it by getting annual averages, GOP administrations still have 29 times more indictments, 64 times more convictions, and 24 times more prison sentences.

You didn't read the article that said a slanted methodology was used to come to the slanted conclusion your citing. The dim-0-craps are just a corrupt, crooked, self-serving as the repulsive. That makes you a big fat LIAR, beaner. GO FU(K YOURSELF, IT MIGHT BE THE BEST PUSSY YOU EVER HAD!

Apparently, Republicans attend such crappy aw schools they have no idea what the definition of "hearsay" is.

No surprise.  Do they even attend law school?

 

Only someone ignorant of the contents of the U.S. Constitutions doesn't know impeachment is VERY LEGAL.  More

inferior Republican knowledge base.
