it may not be illegal but it does give an overall view of the amount of corruption that's going on in our government,these people make me sick...does anyone know how to be ethical,and honorable anymore.What I don't understand is how Ron Paul has managed to work among these psychopaths for so long?....And for the record when Steve Croft ask Pelosi a direct question just by the non answer she gave show just how unethical and wrong all of this is,if they can't admit it publicly they know it's wrong,no matter what laws are passed to protect them.

This scandal will rock congress if the MSM wants it to, end of story. I doubt this will get any play outside of 60 Minutes.

I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere in the msm since I saw it on CNN this morning. Swept under the carpet as always, they're untouchable and can do as they please.

And according to the book, John Kerry (who served in Vietnam) has flipped stock like a madman.

This is not a Republican or Democrat thing - this is a "Congress is corrupt" thing on both sides of the aisle.

Insider trading laws do not apply to Congress. AYFKM?

Pitchforks & Torches!

We ought to flush the whole bunch of them....House & Senate.....and start over.

The only thing that had any impact on these dysfunctional bodies was term-limits. Which, in a surprise move, they repealed the first chance they got.

Pitchforks & torches might be the only solution left...

Its not just our congress-critters engaging in this corruption:

Documents show high-level Education officials colluded with Wall Street short-sellers

It's amazing how CNN and the rest of the MSM are trying to downplay this,it happens every time something that exposes the widespread corruption they go into damage control if,that does not point out that something is seriously wrong with the system then I don't know what will.

The whole place is rotten with corruption, from the tippy top all the way down to your local "public servants". You ought to live in New Mexico - you can't go a whole week down here without some public official getting caught stealing from the taxpayers.

Is Rep. Orrin Hatch involved:

The article above lacks any solid connection but questions his wealth accumulation. Its all worth considering...


"IU legal expert: Insider trading by Congress is illegal, contrary to '60 Minutes' report"

Oh my, perhaps they are breaking the law....

It is not often that people read the whole thing. And rather than cut to just an excerpt, I will quote the entire transcript as the document is most certainly public domain:

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

If people are looking for a war cry slogan, maybe consider "No Continuation Without Representation"

As clearly the of and by might still be there, but their is no longer any action for the people by this government on any level: Federal, State nor Local.

What Congress Doesn't Want You To Know

posted on Nov, 15 2011 @ 03:13 AM
We're worried about whether a Democrat or a Republican is going to be Prez, Senator or whatever and they're robbing us blind. It's bad enough spending our money like drunken Sailors now, they figured that they can get away with insider trading too.Ladies and Gentlemen, we really need to remove all of them and start all over again.
Our starting point MUST be Term Limits. We allow them to stay in Washington too long...About the third term is when they learn how to "game" the system. We cannot afford to allow things to continue down this same path, We MUST DEMAND honesty in government or ?

They made a law that say's congressmen cannot go to jail. They can be kicked out, but cannot go to jail. SO thus they can do corrupt things with hearts desire, until they get caught. Then they go to their cottage home to spend out the rest of their life in luxury on your tax dollars. I THOUGHT, YOU PEOPLE ALL KNOW ALL THIS, APPARENTLY NOT. Congressmen cannot go to jail, it is in the law. They just get impeached,or told to resign, THATS ALL. Name one congressman that went to jail. JUST ONE. YOU CAIN'T , because there is none, not one that went to jail. All the scandal and NOT ONE will go behind bars, NOT ONE. COME ON, i dare you, name just one congressman that went to jail behind bars.
