The American people at large — content to deferentially dwell within the United States of Amnesia — still do not get it. The deep state, driven by the imperial presidency, an acquiescent congress and a complacent federal judiciary, has destroyed the American Republic. The parasitic welfare-warfare state, enabled by the Fed, fosters and promotes the profligacy and dependency which is at the root of this destructive process.
Criminal aggression, ruthlessness, and duplicity are not aberrations or breakdowns of the American State, but are absolutely endemic to it.
Since the enactment of the National Security Act of 1947 and the establishment of the deep state, the United States has undergone a wrenching series of overt and covert domestic transformations of power from one predatory group of elites to another.
These illegal clandestine actions have included the stealing of the 1952 GOP presidential nomination by the Dwight Eisenhower forces from Robert Taft; the theft of the 1960 presidential election by the John Kennedy forces; the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy; the assassination of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X; the October Surprise of 1968; the attempted assassination of George Wallace; Watergate; the October Surprise of 1980; the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan; the Iran-Contra scandal; the derailment by blackmail and intimidation of the Ross Perot 1992 presidential candidacy; the GOP theft of the 2000 presidential election; 9/11; and the stealing of the 2004 presidential election.
Most recently we have witnessed the attempted Russiagate coup d’état against Donald Trump emerging from the 2016 presidential election, concocted by deep state intelligence elements, apparats within the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign, and fueled by the mainstream establishment media.
Within the DC Beltway something ominous and malignant has emerged.
While the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe has moved over the past 29 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall towards building multiparty political systems, we in America have been suckered into a one-party government, rule by the incumbents and only by the incumbents.
Politicians have but one firm goal — re-election. And robbing Peter to buy the vote of Paul is the surest way to this goal. It is the shared doctrine of nominal Republicans and Democrats alike.
Day by day, their meaningless stands on inflammatory and diversionary social issues such as slavery reparations, illegal immigration, or marijuana legalization have merged until little distinction remains. They are now but factions in the one true political party in America — the incumbent party.
Despite all posturing and pretense, their only real dispute concerns whose clients will get the loot . . . and whose the bill.
Capitol Hill has become one vast congressional clip-joint, where members “service” their constituents the way a second-story man “services” a luxury condo. This lies at the root of every economic ill plaguing the country — Wall Street big bank bailouts, crony corporatism, Obamacare malfeasance, the eminent bankruptcy of Social Security and other entitlements, massive foreign trade imbalance and domestic sovereign national debt, Pentagon plunder — the list could go on and on.
Because of this thievery, your income is 60 percent of what it should be. The other 40 percent is forcibly taken by politicians and given to tax-consuming special interests. The parasitical profiteers return some of the ill-gotten gains to their benefactors in the form of campaign contributions, gifts or fees.
Here is how the ruse works in detail: Politicians allocate (steal) taxpayer funds for programs under the guise of alleviating the plight of the poor, the homeless, the sick, the elderly and the unemployed, and serving the “public interest” or “national security.” Yet it is not the mother’s milk of human kindness and compassion which lubricates the intricate gears of political machinery. It is the snake oil of expediency.
The bureaucrats who administer this flim-flam provide taxpayer funds to political advocacy groups through massive grants and contracts, ostensibly intended to fulfill program objectives. However, much of the money received by the special interests is used to lobby, campaign and organize support for the mandarins to manage, additional funding for existing programs, and the re-election of their shills who favor the appropriations which play politics with human misery.
Farcical public hearings are staged to persuade the complacent and compliant news media that greater spending is essential to deal with these pressing problems. Incumbents then appropriate more funds for existing malevolence and initiate new mischief through legislative legerdemain. In turn, they mass their campaign contributions from clients and franking privileges for their re-election efforts.
The bureaucracy awards more pilfered taxpayers’ funds to the special interests, and the process begins all over again.
The losers are the hapless taxpayers who pay for this sophisticated protection racket and the truly unfortunate members of society who receive only a fraction of the promised benefits of the programs set up in their names.
The winners are those tax-consuming bunko artists and wirepullers who gorge themselves at the public trough. The looted tax monies are siphoned off by special interests to promote their schemes, by public employee unions who want to finance the expansion of their petty bureaucratic empires, and by grasping politicians who want hard cash for re-election kitties and for conversion to their own personal use.10:02 pm on June 26, 2019 Email Charles Burris
