Kleptocracies are generally associated with corrupt forms of authoritarian governments, particularly dictatorships, oligarchies, military juntas, or some other forms of autocratic andnepotist government in which no outside oversight is possible, due to the ability of the kleptocrat(s) to personally control both the supply of public funds and the means of determining their disbursal. Kleptocratic rulers typically treat their country’s treasury as though it were their own personal bank account, spending the funds on luxury goods as they see fit. Many kleptocratic rulers also secretly transfer public funds into secret personal numbered bank accounts in foreign countries in order to provide them with continued luxury if/when they are eventually removed from power and forced to flee the country.
Kleptocracy is most common in third-world countries [AMERICA] where the economy (often as a legacy of colonialism) is dominated by resource extraction. Such incomes constitute a form ofeconomic rent and are therefore easier to siphon off without causing the income itself to decrease (for example, due to capital flight as investors pull out to escape the high taxes levied by the kleptocrats). An early phase of this is driven by tenderpreneur elites who seek to capture resources for personal benefit.
The effects of a kleptocratic regime or government on a nation are typically adverse in regards to the faring of the state’s economy, political affairs and civil rights. Kleptocracy in government often vitiates prospects of foreign investment and drastically weakens the domestic market and cross-border trade. As the kleptocracy normally embezzles money from its citizens by misusing funds derived from tax payments, or money laundering schemes, a kleptocratically structured political system tends to degrade nearly everyone’s quality of life.
In addition, the money that kleptocrats steal is often taken from funds that were earmarked for public amenities, such as the building of hospitals, schools, roads, parks and the like – which has further adverse effects on the quality of life of the citizens living under a kleptocracy. The quasi-oligarchy that results from a kleptocratic elite also subverts democracy (or any other political format the state is ostensibly under).

SO!! Idiot-Politicians, like many idiot-people, are simply rapacious little beasts, forever pushing and flailing to get to the slop trough so that they too can roll around in filthy lucre; Disgracefully spoilt, grotesque and bloated, brimming with privilege so totally undeserved and that uniquely American trait, that of the enormous Sense of Entitlement.
This idiot-breed, the politician, certainly shines brightly here in the backwardly inbred population of Santa Barbara, California. “THEY” are nothing if not scabby and greasy, always on the prowl, skulking around from town to town in cheap flimsy and ill-fitting sheep costumes.
So, are we expected to see this, um, spectacle, as a “real” option? I mean, at this point, stop making excuses. Any attempt to differentiate in any way between one and another is to prop up and perpetuate outright LIES. Whether Democrat, Independent, Libertarian, Republican, they are all selfsame, identical platforms, identical interests, identical agendas; Willing collaborators and wretched criminal quislings for their true “masters,” the Corporate money interests and the perpetual furtherance thereof.
Every little idiot-marionette in this pathetic little idiot-theatre serve as a mere distraction; An intentional diversion away from the ongoing and highly successful collaboration among crass and amoral thieves to further their goals of pitiful idiot-power plays.
A reality check is long overdue. ALL politicians spend every waking moment—ON MY DIME–to run their never-ending idiot-campaigns on any “issue” that will please whichever “side” of the dull-witted idiot-voting base, all the while blatantly patronizing, impudently lying, telling us that 1. they CARE and, 2. they represent OUR interests.
In reality, U.S. politicians do not know of any such concept as civic duty, moral obligation, the common good; Indeed, most politicians, if not altogether illiterate; If not totally uneducated and totally ignorant regarding ALL topics, most curiously perhaps, U.S. HISTORY; Stupid politicians and their minions, by and large, do not even know the basics of the U.S. Constitution.
So, with ALL of the stark and obvious warnings over the last
three-four decades, all having been totally IGNORED by most of
the citizenry, THIS is the FINAL wake up call. If and ONLY if an
Enormous Realization, a TRUE AWAKENING, occurs, I guess that
this neo-feudal system of Peonage and debt-servitude will remain
in place; BUT, the longer the denial stays in place, the
stronger the eventual revolt, which may result in the worst
Full Scale Revolution and simultaneous Civil War.
Decade after decade, rampant, blatant, and increasingly impudent high crimes [CORRUPTION] among the idiot-class of self-aggrandizing government officials (PIGS at the slop trough); Along with their patrons, the filthy-rich who own them all outright, continues to grow worse and worse here in America.
As I look 0n in utter disbelief, as political events unfold both here in America and around the world, a rather clear pattern emerges:
Not one of these political HACKS, and not one of the criminal Robber Barons is EVER prosecuted for breaking ANY laws, whether U.S. laws or international laws. And make no mistake, these laws that these apparent “untouchables” brazenly, cavalierly and CONSTANTLY break, are very, very serious laws; Laws for which WE OURSELVES would go to jail. Fraud, scheme to defraud, all imaginable forms of pure profiteering…WAR CRIMES; the list goes on forever.
Again and again, year after year, I see these filthy bastards breaking every single law on ANY and EVERY book, and STILL not ONE of them is EVER held accountable!! FOR ANYTHING!! All the stupid clansmen that get away with every filthy crime including Genocide; Not only is this incredible, it is also unforgivable.
Just as every last one of his unconscionable predecessors, OBAMA IS A CRIMINAL. The U.S. Department of Justice?? Law enforcement agencies? THEY do absolutely NOTHING to THEM. It’s all a JOKE.
Just Remember: It was indeed the silver-tongued conman Obama who clearly stated that he would not “get involved” in prosecutions of WAR CRIMES, EPIC Bank FRAUD; He said, “I want to look forward, not go backward.”
Well, I say to him, I want to move forward by upholding U.S. Laws and international laws. If this corrupt government continues as it is to totally ignore crimes and the criminals, it only gives both the criminals and the would-be criminals license to behave as if they’re above the law. And that is exactly how they conduct themselves. Indeed this is a travesty.
With Utter Contempt,
To the Reporter, Ms. Lara Cooper of News Publication, NOOZHAWK in Santa Barbara, California; and to all of the people of our community who are:
Choosing to participate in human experience by actually putting your hands together, in Solidarity, with compassion, kindness and generosity as the object of the purpose; When WE are ABLE, to first put OTHERS IN FRONT OF OURSELVES;
To help salvage the wrecked and ruined lives of millions upon millions of our own neighbors, our own countrymen, the hardest-working among us, once-middle-class-now-working-poor, those born WITHOUT PRIVILEGE, Who HELP the unfortunate miserables who have lost their jobs, all sources of income, their own homes, and the very shirts off their very backs by NO wrongdoing of their own…
ACTUALLY, these now-homeless, now-impoverished, now-penniless and hungry Americans, yes, OUR HOMELESS, who’ve lost every thing because of the most enormous Scheme to Commit Mass Fraud perpetrated by (GUESS WHO?!?) and the coincidental TOTAL MALFEASANCE by the rest.
And they all have such beady-little reptilian eyes; And such primitive brains, barbaric little amygdala-minds; Minds that function totally backward as they are unenlightened and thoroughly UNCIVILIZED.the crooked minds PLUS they have hearts of stone.
AND absolutely NO SOUL.
I am so grateful to see that so many young people are seeing with their very own eyes…
The picture that this so-called “new norm;” This particular version of “reality” is not only 100% WRONG on every imaginable MORAL level;
It is CATEGORICALLY WRONG [wrongheaded] on every LEGAL level imaginable too, particularly vis-a-vis HUMAN RIGHTS;
Instead of basic human kindness and open-handed generosity, the world is filled with unspeakable atrocities, mind boggling hypocrisy, pathological covetousness with ghastly impudence, Backward impunity…
Indeed, this “New Norm” for “the rest” is UNSPEAKABLE, UNTHINKABLE.
The State of the UNION?
Why, it is simply REPREHENSIBLE…
