So it made me wonder about something, do people get into politics and just become child molesters and sexual predators? Or are pedophiles
chosen and groomed for positions of power because those in power know that if these people for whatever reason can't be bribed, then they can surely
IMO, the latter.
The FBI is more than law enforcement. J. Edgar Hoover turned it into a blackmail clearing-house, and I believe it is still such even today. It is used
to keep dirt on politicians so they can be forced when necessary into voting a certain way. The dirtier the politician, the more easily they can be
persuaded and the more attractive they are to TPTB.
Any politician who achieves public support in the lower levels of government is investigated and the dirt the FBI finds is cataloged and kept. As the
politicians rise to the Federal level, there is plenty of information to work from, and the lure of lobbyists is so strong that they tend to
succumb... and as long as they don't rock the boat, they can get away with it.
That's why Trump is hated. He didn't come up through political circles. He came up through reality TV, and he was already wealthy and powerful before
that even. There was no real dirt on him in the FBI's database and that made him uncontrollable... and extremely dangerous in charge of the FBI.
That's why Jeff Sessions was demonized. As Attorney General, he is in more direct control of the FBI. I'm sure there's dirt on him, but there's also a
distinct possibility that he will side with Trump in cleaning the swamp. After all, this is the man who stood up in the US Senate and chewed out the
rest of Congress, including his own party, on more than one occasion.
That's why James Comey was fired. What was said publicly was an excuse... the real reason was that Trump wanted access to the wealth of information on
the DC political operatives, and waited until Comey was far out of state and completely taken by surprise when it happened.
That's why Moore is being attacked so vociferously by both sides. There's not enough dirt on him, so some has to be manufactured to keep him in
And that's why there are renewed efforts to impeach Trump. He's getting too close. Weinstein was a financial player and his disgrace has caused
financial problems in the DNC. Finance (bribery) keeps the wheels of corruption moving smoothly, and that finance is drying up.
That's also why we are seeing agreement between Democrats and Republicans, not on legislation of course, but on matters pertaining to those mentioned
above. They're circling the wagons and on certain issues can no longer do their choreographed fight scenes. The fact that both sides of that
semi-existent aisle are agreeing on things like Franken and Moore tells me they are circling the wagons while they try to keep up the illusion of
opposition on the bills that are moving through.
