Abramoff Cops a Plea and Sings To The Man--Prosecutors Get Witness To Testify About Corruption in Congress


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Abramoff, facing hard time in the Fed Pen, has decided to tell all the gory details about how he conspired with the Republicans to pour tons of illegal money into our political system, allowing the GOP to steal elections and turn America into a mental wasteland with vicious, lying TV commercials, etc. Arrest them all. Put them all in prison. Throw away the key.

From Yahoo:
Lobbyist Jack Abramoff will plead guilty to federal charges in Washington and Miami, clearing the way for him to cooperate in a massive government investigation of influence peddling involving members of Congress, lawyers said Tuesday.

As part of the deal, prosecutors were filing conspiracy, fraud and tax evasion charges against the embattled lobbyist, a Justice Department official said.

Abramoff was scheduled to appear at a hearing in U.S. District Court here later Tuesday, said department spokesman Bryan Sierra. Abramoff was expected to plead guilty to three charges as part of his agreement.
And who was good at "fundraising"? Aside from the utterly corrupt, venal liar/drunk, Bush? Well, the GOP boasted over and over again that they get lots of money from special interests which of course, get lots of tax cuts and benefits back from the corrupt Republicans and it was a nice, vicious circle jerk that has driven America deep into debt and off the fiscal cliff and basically, is destroying our country.

So I would like to see them put on trial for treason but of course, selling America to Japan and China for a tuppence is perfectly OK with many Americans who don't understand that those who have the money call the shots. And we are now over $8 trillion in debt thanks to corruptors like Abramoff but then, he wouldn't flourish if there was no need for politicians to sell their souls to fund raisers who raise funds by offering secret deals and protocols and sweetheart goodies to very rich people!

So, fixing this system is more than merely arresting Bush and Cheney and DeLay and the other gang members, it means shutting down the toxic media/election/fundraising machine that plows literally billions of dollars into the pockets of the owners of the media in America, they should be on trial, too.

The fact is, we no longer have real elections or real debates or real anything thanks to corrupt elected (sic) representatives conspiring with traitors who don't care if America collapses so long as they get their money parked in Aruba. This hell-hole can't be easily filled. The machinery is itching to get rolling again right now as I type! They are fundraising by offering, at fire sale prices, everything we hold dear here in America.

Abramoff was sucking off of the gambling mania in America. Gambling dens have, under the GOP in particular, spread like a cancer acrosss the nation. It has our culture in an iron grip and as the teeth bite deeper and deeper, our capitalist system teeters on the edge of disaster. We can't all be blackjack dealers! We can't all be entertainers in Las Vegas! We can't all get rich quick, picking magic numbers.

The gambling "industry" is really a leech, it takes out and gives nothing back. It takes the life savings of families and turns it into cheap glitter. It takes honest people and turns them into swindlers. Recently, a detective became a hero because he saved two small children from death in a fire. Two days later, he was arrested when caught on camera, stealing money from the evidence room, to pay for his huge gambling debts.

Again and again, honest, genuinely upstanding citizens become embezzlers,petty thieves and pick pockets, thanks to gambling. And our legislators are all pimps and whores who play elaborate games with rival gambling Tangs to see how much money they can eke out of everyone.

Next: let's arrest the clowns who make wars for the military/industrial complex. Corrupt American Krupps.
