Are We Seeing Institutionalized Corruption and Treachery?

“The largest banks have become too big to prosecute because of the impact criminal charges would have on confidence in them, Britain’s most senior bank regulator has admitted.” [8] Harry Wilson, Telegraph U.K., December 14, 2012.

Financial Corruption:

The financial system has been pillaged and looted by financial criminals and none have gone to jail. In the Libor “racket” [1] some of them have paid large fines and continue to operate in the financial world. Other financial institutions have been involved in laundering drug money and financing terrorism [2] but still no jail time ensues. Many banks have been bailed out with taxpayers’ dollars, and many taxpayers have lost their homes their jobs and seen their pension funds and their savings go into the dumpster (no bailouts for them) because of the financial banditry by these monetary reprobates.  Some of these monetary manipulators have been known to advise governments, and goofy governments take their advice and impose austerity on their own people.

The people of Greece, Ireland, and other countries are subjected to austerity imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) which in turn is financed by the taxpayers’ dollars of various countries. Was there ever a sweeter set up than this kind of system where taxpayers who pay the wages of the IMF cabal are punished by this same crony cabal of pin striped suited bankers?’ If it wasn’t so ridiculous it would be laughable, but unfortunately it is no joke. The jokers in charge are the money changers who wage monetary war in the name of austerity.

The War Business Corruption:

“First, the [Libyan] war is illegal under the United States constitution and our War Powers Act, because only the US Congress has the authority to declare war and the president has been unable to show that the US faced an imminent threat from Libya.” -Dennis Kucinich, American Congressman, writing in the Guardian U.K Newspaper July 6, 2011.

Illegal wars are started under the slogans of “humanitarian missions” and “responsibility to protect.” A country is laid waste and men women and children are slaughtered in the name of “bringing democracy,” and the end result is a civil war. Dictators are propped up and supplied with weapons to terrorize their own people by the friendly politicians [3] in the western “democracies.”

The Ottawa Citizen of April 23, 2011 had this headline: “DND reports reveal Canada's ties with Gadhafi.  The article went on to say, “Western politicians have labelled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi a despot and a brutal dictator, but Defence Department reports portray him in another way--as a staunch ally in the war against al-Qaeda and Islamic extremism.”

Still, the time had come to replace the dictator, who formerly was their friend and “staunch ally” so the “good guys” teamed up with their supposed enemy, the bad guys [4], and bombed Libya back to the dark ages. [5] But hey, these are the “good guys” in partnership with the bad guys and if they kill innocent children [6] in the process they can always apologise. So what is really going on? First the “good guys” supply the dictator with weapons then they unseat him in partnership with a supposed enemy. Now the Al- Qaeda flag is flying over Libya, [7] and nobody is held accountable for the horrific mess. Though one courageous politician did have the courage to speak out:

“A US lawmaker fiercely opposed to NATO’s role in the Libya conflict called Tuesday for the alliance’s military chiefs to be held to account under international law for the deaths of Libyan civilians.

“Otherwise we will have witnessed the triumph of a new international gangsterism,” Democratic Representative Dennis Kucinich, a leading opponent in the US Congress to Washington’s role in the fighting, said in a statement.” [7a]

Political Treachery?

Are we seeing political treachery being enacted? Can the people of any country have confidence in a government that does not obey the will of the people?

Example: The people of Ireland voted No to joining the European Union. This vote was not acceptable to the elites and the people of Ireland were subjected to another vote that culminated in a Yes vote. Therefore, one has to ask: Why was the No vote unacceptable? Were there other forces behind the scenes determined to subvert democracy and did they succeed? And could one call this abrogation of the original No vote, a case of political treason?

Another example: Some countries now in the European Union never asked their citizens whether they wanted to join. In fact, “Bloomberg Business Week” of June 13, 2008, stated, “Ireland is the only country in Europe to hold a referendum on the treaty.” Now in the E.U. national sovereignty has been surrendered to technocrats, bureaucrats, bankers and the unelected. The Euro Observer of December 9, 2011 stated, “…almost all fiscal policy-making would be taken out of the hands of national assemblies and delivered up to European civil servants.” The people are being betrayed by their puppet political “leaders.” Democracy has been ditched and I believe political treason abounds.

We also see “free trade” deals being negotiated between countries in secret. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) [9] is one “secret” deal and there are others. Parliaments are being bypassed and I believe national sovereignty surrendered. [9A] A deal is signed with a communist dictatorship [10] and “free enterprise” capitalists’ consort with communists as do many politicians. [11] Ethics, principle, morality and human rights are tossed aside in the race for bloodstained profits. There are many more examples that could be quoted about the treachery I believe is being enacted today. I have only shown a few. In closing one has to ask, are we seeing institutionalized corruption and treachery?
