It's easy to point out the problems with others, and yet be blind to it when it's your own country.

Our politics are completely corrupted by the super rich, who buy legislation and flood campaign coffers with political payouts, and the result is we end up with sleaze who run for office not to work for the average citizen but the 1%. They've made voting an almost futile effort.

A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democratic political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

Patriot Act That Dennis Hastert Passed Led To His Indictment

On Oct. 24, 2001, then-House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) shepherded the Patriot Act through the House of Representatives. It passed 357 to 66, advancing to the Senate and then-President George W. Bush’s desk for signing....

Little did Hastert know at the time that the law he helped pass would give federal law enforcement the tools to indict him on charges of violating banking-related reporting requirements more than a decade later.

The Department of Justice on Thursday announced Hastert's indictment for agreeing to pay $3.5 million in hush money to keep someone quiet about his “prior misconduct.” The indictment accuses Hastert of structuring bank withdrawals to avoid bank reporting requirements, and lying to the FBI about the nature of the withdrawals. It does not reveal the “misconduct” that Hastert was trying to conceal. The recipient of the money was a resident of Yorkville, Illinois, where Hastert taught high school and coached wrestling from 1965 to 1981.

The indictment suggests that law enforcement officials relied on the Patriot Act’s expansion of bank reporting requirements to snare Hastert. As the IRS notes, “the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 increased the scope” of cash reporting laws “to help trace funds used for terrorism.” The Bank Secrecy Act of 1970, which was amended by the Patriot Act, had already required banks to report suspicious transactions.

If only all those who helped create and pass the Patriot Act were to meet such karma.

If you think we're sick because of this, there's a great documentary you should watch. It was banned from airing in the US but thanks to youtube it's out there now. It's about boystown.

Bottom line, the male Speaker of the House during Clinton's impeachment, and during the passage of the Patriot Act, is a molester of boys who were put under his care. I wonder if he just stopped his sexual preference after he went into politics, or practiced it throughout his career.
