What retains politicians in Washington? Cash and energy

It is often said that the lure of power is an extremely attractive and intoxicating force in politics. Surely there are many who yearn for power over others and have a narcissistic need for attention.

However, a second word is missing from the attractant formula: money! Lots and lots of money.

If an ambitious politician thinks he can get rich with a member of the Congress, he is wrong. The real money is likely in transplant and corruption.

It was puzzling to see that so many longtime members of Congress could possibly be so enriched. There are apparently two ways to do this.

The old-fashioned way is to pass laws that exempt Congressmen from insider trading. In other words, these politicians are familiar with legal information before they ever see a committee. With this inside knowledge, stocks can be traded, real estate bought or sold, and a convenient bundle amassed.

There’s also the selling of influence – a profitable business in Washington and many state governments. However, voters don’t like the idea that people are elected to office to make laws that pass money to the same lawmakers. Hence, the incentive is to hide the process from sight.

The Biden family has apparently sold influence. The stalking horse was Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

The famous video clip of Joe Biden boasting before a Council on Foreign Relations meeting about how he would ensure that loan guarantees from Ukraine were withheld if a prosecutor was not fired who was investigating a company affiliated with his son Hunter . Former Obama government officials and an anti-corruption lawyer in Ukraine said the prosecutor was fired for failing to prosecute allegations of corruption against government officials.

Many questions have also surfaced about that Bidens did business in Chinaand how Hunter Biden was on the boards of a number of companies that did business in areas he had no knowledge of.

Let’s look at the most recent and egregious example of the wasting of our money, or should I say the debt that was spent on the recent COVID-19 relief bill.

Millions of dollars went to Pakistan for gender studies. Pakistan? “Really?” You can bet money will never study gender. Rather, most likely will go to the ruling junta and give a nice “tip” to the families of Congressmen who put them into legislation. Now that we know how to do it, the only way we can get close to such a practice is to oversee every financial transaction made by the families of our elected officials, even as they go through numerous bogus firms and businesses.

When you look at the entirety of both parties’ corruption in Washington, it’s no wonder Donald Trump is so popular. No amount of liberal nonsense can convince American workers that they are not doing better under the current administration. Yes, COVID-19 has taken its toll. But if Dr. Anthony Fauci fulfills lockout requirements under a Democratic President?

The Democrats’ hatred of Trump, the outsider, proves one thing: he knows where the moneybags are buried and that none of the politicians in Washington want them exhumed.
