The U.S. Government is Hopelessly Corrupt

I went to war for the United States three times. I have always loved my country. I still do.

It is the U.S. government that I despise, which has deliberately and decisively separated itself from the American people.

In his 1993 book, “The Wish for Kings,” Lewis Lapham described the U.S. government as an oligarchy:

“that 2% of the population who own the media and the banks, manage the government, operate the universities, print the money, write the laws and, every four years, hire a President.”

Is there any doubt that the oligarchy hired the enfeebled Joe Biden to run for President and carry out its wishes because Donald Trump would not?

That was the essence of the 2020 election and an explanation for the last four years of political turmoil in which the oligarchy illegitimately tried to remove Trump from the Presidency.

But it is now far worse than that.

In the past decades, the oligarchy was manipulating government simply to maximize its profits, as Lapham wrote:

“The politicians dress up the deals in the language of law or policy, but they’re in the business of brokering the tax revenue, and what keeps them in office is not their talent for oratory but their skill at redistributing the national income in a way that rewards their clients, patrons, friends and campaign contributors.”

Today, in addition to maximizing profits, the oligarchy wants to control what you read, what you think and what you are permitted to express.

There is an unholy and dangerous alliance combining the media and Big Tech with the national security state, that is, the intelligence services, the military-industrial complex and law enforcement.

It is, quite literally, an effort to abrogate the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and eliminate free speech.

The United States government has gone beyond authoritarianism towards the Chinese Communist Party model of state capitalism and totalitarianism.

And what better candidate to carry that model forward than Joe Biden, who is already compromised by his close connections with the Chinese government?

Make no mistake, Donald Trump won the 2020 Presidential election. It was stolen, not only from him, but, more importantly, it was stolen from the American people by the well-organized and well-financed application of massive electoral fraud.

A detailed description of the election fraud was published by Dr. Peter Navarro.

Most of what the media are reporting about the election and the events following it, such as the so-called “assault” on the Capitol building, are lies combined with Big Tech censorship and psychological operations conducted by those with connections to the national security state.

Media disinformation and Big Tech censorship are extensions of and an attempt to solidify the fraudulent 2020 election, which was not simply a contest between the Democrat and Republican ideologies, but a battle between the entrenched power of the bipartisan political establishment versus the freedom and well-being of the American people

Contrary to the claims of the discredited media, there was never a cult of personality.

Donald Trump was an instrument by which the American people might wrest control of their own government from the vicelike grip of the oligarchy.

The oligarchy hates, not just Trump, but hates and fears the American people, who represent an obstacle to the oligarchy’s use of government as a lever to obtain personal power and profit.

It is a fundamental principle of democracy that the efficiency and effectiveness of government are directly dependent upon the trustworthiness of government officials as representatives and executors of the views and desires of the people.

Americans now believe that we are not citizens of a republic, but subjects of a fraudulently-elected aristocracy, composed of a self-absorbed permanent political class, which serves the interests of international financiers at the expense of the American people

Although we have elections in the United States, we no longer have representative government.

As an American patriot, it is painful for me to admit it because I have always considered the United States as history’s greatest democratic republic, but my country’s government is hopelessly corrupt.

The U.S. government must be stripped bare and rebuilt from the ground up according to the U.S. constitution as it was written, not how it has been interpreted by the self-centered incompetents, cowards, profiteers and deranged, but otherwise unemployable ideologues, all of whom currently populate the government’s executive, judicial and legislative branches.

Three years before the start of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln said a government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free — that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

Likewise, a government separated from the people cannot stand.

He may be inaugurated, but Joe Biden will never, under any circumstances, be considered a legitimate President.

U.S. Capitol Hill Officer Assigned to Senate Commits Suicide; Father Was Former Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Who Died of Heart Attack at 62

By Daily Caller. A Capitol Police officer died in an off-duty incident, suspected to be suicide, on Friday, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Officer Howard Liebengood, 51, was assigned to the Senate Division and had worked with the department for almost 16 years and died in an off-duty incident, according to the Capitol Police. The department did not release the details of Liebengood’s death, though Punchbowl News reporter Jake Sherman said he died by suicide, citing “several sources.”

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and colleagues,” the Capitol Police said in a statement on Sunday. “We ask that his family, and other USCP officers’ and their families’ privacy be respected during this profoundly difficult time.”

U.S. Capitol Hill Officer Assigned to Senate Commits Suicide; Father Was Former Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Who Died of Heart Attack at 62

By Law and Crime. An officer with the United States Capitol Police has died by suicide. He was Howard Liebengood, said sources cited by Punch Bowl News‘ Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan.

“The United States Capitol Police is deeply saddened by the off-duty death on January 9, 2021, of Officer Howard Liebengood, age 51,” Capitol police said in a statement released on Sunday. “He was assigned to the Senate Division, and has been with the Department since April 2005. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and colleagues. We ask that his family, and other USCP officers’ and their families’ privacy be respected during this profoundly difficult time.”

Liebengood was the son of former Senate sergeant-at-arms Howard S. Liebengood, who died in 2005 of a heart attack at age 62. His father also previously served as a chief of staff for two Republican senators, and was a lobbyist.

It is unclear if Liebengood left behind an explanation. His death happens mere days after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol Building on Wednesday. Congress was certifying the electoral college votes that favored President-elect Joe Biden. Trump has incessantly been lying that he actually won, and the election was stolen from him.

Report: White House Counsel Warning Staffers That Donald Trump Could Be Charged With Treason

The White House’s top lawyer is reportedly warning staffers not to contact Donald Trump over fears that they could join him in being charged with treason, a report claims.

Vanity Fair reported that there was panic among staffers after violence broke out at the U.S. Capitol as angry supporters of the president stormed the building, forcing members of Congress to go into hiding. Some of them feared that they could be implicated in a coup to overthrow the government, and were advised to steer clear of Trump.

“The West Wing staffer told the friend that White House Counsel Pat Cipollone was urging White House officials not to speak to Trump or enable his coup attempt in any way, so they could reduce the chance they could be prosecuted for treason under the Sedition Act,” the outlet noted.

Nikki Haley Tells RNC Trump’s Actions Since Election ‘Will Be Judged Harshly by History’

Former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley delivered harsh criticisms of President Donald Trump in a speech to the Republican National Committee on Thursday, telling the audience that her former boss’s actions since the election “will be judged harshly by history.”

“President Trump has not always chosen the right words,” Haley said in her address at the RNC’s winter meeting, according to Politico. “He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time. He was badly wrong with his words yesterday. And it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported that Haley also praised Trump for his foreign policy approach, saying, “President Trump was our first commander in chief to see China for what it really is—the greatest global threat facing America. He held China accountable for its unfair trade, its theft of our secrets, and its egregious human rights record. The United States now sees China with open eyes, and we have Donald Trump to thank for that.”

On the morning of her talk, Haley tweeted that “it would be a conversation about where we are, some hard truths, and where I believe we go from here.” (Read more from “Nikki Haley Tells RNC Trump’s Actions Since Election ‘Will Be Judged Harshly by History'” HERE)

Congress Overrides Trump Veto for the First Time

Congress delivered a stinging rebuke to President Trump during a rare New Year’s Day session Friday, handing him his first veto override in the final days of his administration.

The GOP-controlled Senate voted 81-13 to override Trump’s veto of a mammoth defense bill, well above the two-thirds support necessary, underscoring the depth of disagreement between the two sides of Pennsylvania Avenue.

The House voted 322-87 earlier this week to nix Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which greenlights spending levels and lays out policy for the Pentagon.

It caps off a chaotic session for Congress that started with the longest government shutdown in modern history, included an impeachment trial and is now closing in a rare rebuke of Trump. In addition to the veto fight, which was the last vote of the 116th Congress, Senate Republicans effectively killed the president’s demand for an increase in recently-passed stimulus checks, and next week Congress will ultimately reject a long-shot attempt by conservatives to hand the election to Trump.

Chinese Virologist Whistleblower Says She’ll Spread Message ‘Before They Kill Me’

Chinese virologist who attracted global attention after spreading a conspiracy theory that China was responsible for creating and releasing SARS-CoV-2 has suggested this week she could be killed as a result of her disclosures.

Li-Meng Yan, a former post-doctoral fellow at Hong Kong University, said in an interview with Spanish TV channel Telecinco Thursday that Chinese authorities have spread false rumors in an attempt to ruin her reputation after she refused to remain silent.

“What I am going to do is spread the message as much as possible and show the facts so that people can verify them before they kill me. Everyone has to know the truth and they are not going to scare me,” she told television host Iker Jiménez.

Yan reiterated the claim her initial concerns about the origins of the coronavirus strain that causes COVID-19—which she maintains was made in a lab before intentionally being released by China—were previously silenced by her superiors.

California to Study ‘Reparations’ for Slavery

The State of California will study reparations to black Americans, thanks to a bill signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

AB 3121 will create a nine-member “Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans, with a Special Consideration for African Americans Who are Descendants of Persons Enslaved in the United States,” according to the text of the bill.

California was admitted to the Union in 1850 as a free state and has no history of legal slavery. . .

Despite California’s free history, the reparations task force is assigned the mission of evaluating the history and impact of slavery on the United States as a whole.

The goal, as with many California policies, is to be a model for liberal policies elsewhere — or, as Newsom said, according to The Hill, to be “a paradigm that we hope will be resonant all across the United States.” (Read more from “California to Study ‘Reparations’ for Slavery” HERE)
