I thought about using the title “Dennis Hastert – Portrait Of A Perverted Corruptocrat” but changed my mind when the thought crossed my mind that Dennis Hastert is the poster boy of the modern Republican Party. The corrupt, perverted, despicable Republican Party.
Sure, I know the Democrats are the same or worse but the Republican Party was always supposed to stand for values we conservatives hold sacred. Small government, low taxes, the rule of law, individual liberty, decency, moral values, doing the right thing. ‘Supposed’ being the key word.
The Republican Party has done NOTHING of which they were elected to do. They have not stopped Obama’s destruction of America domestically and overseas. They have funded every debacle Obama and the Democrats have used to weaken the USA. So much that there is basically zero difference between either political party. What a horrible record.
Politicians from both parties have proven over and over the old adage of ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ Why tax paying Americans continue to send the same corruptocrats back to Washington year after year to do nothing but line their pockets is beyond belief. But a stupid electorate is exactly what these corruptocrats desire. All that’s required is a few speeches at election time rife with “we have to” and “we need to” words of nothing and another term is given and more millions are waiting at the trough of public corruption in Washington.
Dennis Hastert. The ol’ coach! That was his persona and what won him the Speaker’s gavel. He was supposed to be one of us. A regular guy. And he was, if you’re a child molesting, corrupt pervert. A despicable human too cowardly to eat a bullet to salvage the last molecule of decency he may have for the office he disgraced and his family he embarrassed. Not to mention the young boys he violated.
Hastert is being sued by several males whom he molested when he was a junior high wrestling coach. He paid them millions in hush money to keep quiet but quit paying, hence the lawsuits. How a junior high wrestling coach and later Congressman comes up with multiple millions in disposable hush money explains perfectly why losing an election (which rarely occurs) or death are the only reasons Congressmen ever leave office. They go to Washington to ride the lifetime gravy train. Hastert was no different.
Hastert also lined his pockets as Speaker. Here’s how he made a cool $1.5 million by using tax dollars to put a highway through land he and investors purchased.
Of course, George W Bush was only too happy to sign Hastert’s highway earmark as he never vetoed a @#^& wasteful spending bill the Republicans served up during his eight horrible years. When the Republicans spend money like Democrats, how can they be not considered Democrats?
Of course, Bush also enjoyed cigars on the Lincoln balcony with Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia two days after 9/11. It’s now coming to light that Bandar and the Saudi kingdom financed and assisted the 9/11 murderers in killing 3,000 Americans. Bush also made sure all Saudis as well as bin Laden family members were quickly and quietly flown out of the country.
There is no one in Washington we can trust to do the things they promised at election time. Actually, we can expect the opposite of what they say. That is where we find ourselves in 2016.
AWD lost interest in the Tea Party movement once I realized the movement was being taken for a ride by the Establishment Republicans. When the Tea Party millions worked tirelessly to return the House to the GOP, Republican congressmen voted John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Nothing changed. When the Conservative Caucus raised a stink last year that resulted in Boehner being forced to resign because of his atrocious record, the Republicans elected Paul Ryan to the Speaker’s seat. Ryan appears to be worse than Boehner. Rinse and repeat.
I don’t look for anything to change with a President Trump, President Cruz. We know what will happen with a President Cankles. There’s simply too much money and power in Washington to change anything. And too many lobbyists and politicians. Nothing will change except things will get much worse. Except for politicians and lobbyists in Washington.
Maybe not all in Washington are perverted pedophiles like Dennis Hastert but you better believe they are all corrupt. But it would’t surprise me a bit to find they are all pedophiles. Such is my opinion of politicians.
The GOP should change the Elephant as the symbol of their Party to the face of Dennis Hastert. It’s much more accurate. Sadly accurate. And disgusting.
