Biggest Scandal of this administration going completely unnoticed while right out in front of us...

The past several years have been filled with scandal after scandal...

Fast and Furious
The new Black Panthers
Solyndra
James Rosen Investigation
Spying on AP Reporters
Bengazi
NSA Spying
IRS Targeting
VA Waitlist

But the biggest scandal of all is what all of these have in common.
1) They all have overwhelming evidence of wrongdoing
2) In all cases, no one has gone to jail or been punished.

Sure, congress has put on a good show by dragging the people involved into the chamber to scold them and make threats, but in the end they all turned out the same. No one was punished.

The question is why? Why is there only a bunch of threats and no real action by republicans in every single one of these cases?

Are republicans involved in some of these and they don't want that to come out? Do they have more to gain by leveraging these scandals instead of prosecuting them? Is there a bigger scandal the Dems are holding over their heads?

At this point it cannot be coincidence, somewhere under all of these scandals is something bigger.

In the big picture

The largest scandal is the expansion of executive power and authority.

With every precedent in executive authority we draw closer to a tyrannical dictatorship with a healthy dose of totalitarianism.

It can only be that the two parties are controlled by the same

people, or that they have agreed not to prosecute each other's senior members when caught committing crimes.

Since one of these is the case, why are we still lending our good names to either of these corrupt parties, or any other centralized hierarchy? Network of local or regional groups which elect legislators to the ballot as independents is the answer. www.arneighbors.org

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

Considering the similarities between Bush & Obama

I don't doubt they are controlled by the same masters.

Since I think most pols are being blackmailed

Tough for the dark masters to throw them in the clink. They might start singing.

If the CIA can bully Feinstein in public, you can bet behind the scenes it is getting brutal.

When a government entity like the CIA can run rings around the Chair of the Senate Intelligence committee, we are all in deep chit.

It's so bad, it's worth repeating: The CIA essentially controls what it is supposed to be controlled by.

Unelected officials are essentially running the country now.

The zero accountability issue

The zero accountability issue has been happening for a long time. No one in Washington outside of non-profits is going to rat on each other, and even these are being run by wannabes. Yes, character assassination is used, but not the law.

You have a bunch of politicians, lawyers, and bureaucrats all working for the same establishment. If one goes down, it could start a very nasty trend.

Our government is the mafia. This is not hyperbole.

The only shocking issue is the lack of empathy and downright idiocy of the American people.

This is actually a very good point

so merits another upvote and bump.

It's about people's words and actions

and the fact it is all recorded to be used as necessary for control.

The laws have been broken.

How Many In Washington Are Being Blackmailed And Who Are They?

There is much more on this but got these 2 informative posts from just a quick DP archive search.

Of course the blackmailing involves other areas and scandals; money laundering, inside trading, vote rigging etc.. but to me this is the most heinous. Of course the NSA shares the data with many other alphabet government agencies but there are thousands of private companies including many in foreign nations that have access to the data also. You can only imagine the depth of corruption and abuse due to that information.

There is no scandal that the Dems have on the Reps. The reason for ignoring the wrong doing is simple, just as simple as the reason that each President ignores the criminality or wrong doing of the previous administrations.

Sure, it's Democrats who are abusing the power NOW, and aiming the IRS NOW, and fucking over Americans NOW.

But in 2 years, or 6, it will be the Republicans in office. And then it will be their turn to abuse the power. And since we have precedent, it will be less controversial and easier to get away with.

Simple. The game continues. This is all the evidence you should need to understand that we live in a 2 party dictatorship.

Deprogramming progressives, one conversation at a time.

The Scandal Is Caused By The Use Of "PAPER" Money !

Dr. Paul has been teaching us about this since the 1970's !
Paper money {or clipped coins} issued by anyone can destroy a state, or a nation, simply because the issuer of the paper always succumbs to Greed by those issuing way too much.

The U.S. founders, along with my old college professor and Ron Paul, knew this would eventually happen in the USA, and prohibited bills of credit in Article I section 10 of the U.S. Constitution. {The supreme law of the land.}

The scandal is, people the world over have been bought off ! [Except for Dr. Ron Paul]

beesting

And like all the other scandals

This too shall remain a non-issue.

Scandal Economy

Is there a bigger scandal the Dems are holding over their heads?

At this point it cannot be coincidence, somewhere under all of these scandals is something bigger.

I don't mean to play it down, but scandal has clearly ruled in Washington D.C. for certainly longer than my modest half century on the planet. The majority of elected officials there are involved with that which may be held over their heads in the public eye as scandal. Scandal there, exists as a marketable commodity. Blackmail, extortion, and threats thereof exist as fungible currency.

As long as the President appears to be king of scandal, everyone else in D.C. is actually relieved, that the microscope and spotlight are not on them.

In the bigger picture, the psychology of scandal economy is spilling over into the mass population on a grand scale. In the 80s when Gary Hart said "I have nothing to hide", it seemed safely isolated to D.C. politics. Now that slogan is becoming commonplace across America [and the globe?]. This is why the psychology of the whole national security culture seems so generally repulsive to libertarians. The fundamentals of liberty and morality are currently being destroyed as we accept the scandal economy. Its mere acceptance provides a sort of passive participation.

Congress works for the

Congress works for the President! Not for us! Why you think during the State of the Union, he gets treated like a king? Our hope system is built on corruption, why do you think they make you rise when a judge enters a court room? Because they want you to know that you're just a slave and nothing more.

Missouri congress critters.

The bigger picture is the USA is insolvent

And the govt is in a continuous cycle of siphoning off wealth from the people and giving it to the elites. The million dollar question is when do the people put a stop to it? How poor do we have to be before we act?

hmmm

trillion dollar question?

uh, yeah.

that something bigger is the ENTIRE SYSTEM. Its a sham, and they cannot introduce personal responsibility into the mix, as their ability to ride the power train to Millionsville would end up as a trip to "pound me in the ass" prison. Therefor, no punishments that aren't absolutely necessary to preserve power will be delivered. Only trotting out the guilty on cspan so it looks like they are "getting to the bottom of it". They are "the bottom of it". The bottom of the barrel.
