Apparently California Democrats view their escalating corruption problems as just some danged PR problem they can spin or ignore. Good luck with that. Three Democratic state senators are in serious legal problems. Yet the Senate merely voted to suspend them with pay. Yeah, that’s really sending a message to the California populace that the Senate […]

Semi-retired CA Democratic kingmaker Willie Brown says suspension (with pay!) of three corrupt members by State Senate will stop all that icky bad PR and embarrassment. He’s in denial, if not outright delusional. All three will continue to draw paychecks. All a suspension does is get them out of the Capitol. Plus, expelling the three […]
Two high profile corruption and fraud cases involving California Democratic legislators would, you might think, make fellow Democrats do the right thing and force them to resign. Ha!

HSA has spent millions and four years updating their dinosaur terrorist tracking computer system, and wouldn’t you know it, the whole thing is a colossal train wreck! In fact things are so FUBARed, HSA has no idea when or […]
The US government despite blusterings to the contrary is intent on insuring the flow of drugs continues from Mexico, along with billions of dollars of dirty money. As for Rule of Law, well, I guess that’s just for the little people. All that drug cartel money flowing into our financial is just too juicy to […]
William Ward, the former head of the United States’ Africa Command, is accused of spending hundreds of thousands in taxpayer dollars on personal expenses. Ward is (was?) a four-star general accused of using public money for personal use, yet the story is getting very little play in the US and appears absent from major media […]
Ok, it’s not quite that bad, but close. A new poll says a mere 5% think Congress is doing a good job with a plurality saying most members of Congress are corrupt.
Republic Report has hired convicted felon and former corruptor Jack Abramoff to be part of their team, which includes Matt Stoller. It just launched and the content is already excellent. I’m definitely keeping an eye on Republic Report.
