dinsdag 10 september 2019 - 00:06 How Deep Is the Rot in America’s Institutions?

When you discover rot in an apparently sound structure, the first question is: how far has the rot penetrated? If the rot has reached the foundation and turned it to mush, the structure is one wind-storm from collapse.

How deep has the rot of corruption, fraud, abuse of power, betrayal of the public trust, blatant criminality and insiders protecting the guilty penetrated Americas key public and private institutions? Its difficult to tell, as the law-enforcement and security agencies are themselves hopelessly compromised.

If you doubt this, then please explain how 1) the NSA, CIA and FBI didnt know what Jeffrey Epstein was up to, and with whom; 2) Epstein was free to pursue his sexual exploitation of minors for years prior to his wrist-slap conviction and for years afterward; 3) Epstein, the highest profile and most at-risk prisoner in the nation, was left alone and the security cameras recording his cell and surroundings were broken.

If this all strikes you as evidence that Americas security and law-enforcement institutions are functioning at a level thats above reproach, then 1) youre a well-paid shill whos protecting the guilty lest your own misdeeds come to light or 2) your consumption of mind-bending meds is off the charts.

How deep has the rot gone in Americas ruling elite? One way to measure the depth of the rot is to ask how whistleblowers whove exposed the ugly realities of insider dealing, malfeasance, tax evasion, cover-ups, etc. have fared.

Americas ruling class has crucified whistleblowers , especially those uncovering fraud in the defense (military-industrial-security) and financial (tax evasion) sectors and blatant violations of public trust, civil liberties and privacy.

Needless to say, a factual accounting of corruption, cronyism, incompetence, self-serving exploitation of the many by the few, etc. is not welcome in America. Look at the dearth of investigative resources Americas corporate media is devoting to digging down to the deepest levels of rot in the Epstein case.

The closer wrong-doing and wrong-doers are to protected power-elites, the less attention the mass media devotes to them.

As for Corporate Americas fraud and corruption: No Wrongdoing Here, Just 6,300 Corporate Fines and Settlements (May 2015). Prosecutors no longer indict bankers, CEOs or top executives. Wrist-slap fines are deemed adequate punishment, even when corporate managers have reaped billions of dollars in profits selling highly addictive and dangerous drugs while claiming theyre safe and non-addictive.

The tens of thousands of Americans whove died from these drugs suggest this was never true.

All this rotcorruption, fraud, abuse of power, betrayal of the public trust, tax evasion, blatant criminality and insiders protecting the guiltyhas consequences. As I explained in Crony Capitalism Is Kryptonite to Democracy and the Real Economy (October 6, 2014), When the machinery of governance is ruled by the highest bidders, democracy is dead. (Hmm, why is Facebook suddenly spending $100 million on lobbying?)

Or as correspondent Simons C. recently put it: The ethical dimension underpinning the whole system is this: whats moral is whats legal and whats legal is for sale.

Here are Americas media, law enforcement/security agencies and leadership class: they speak no evil, see no evil and hear no evil, in the misguided belief that their misdirection, self-service and protection of the guilty will make us buy the narrative that Americas ruling elite and all the core institutions they manage arent rotten to the foundations.

Either we root out every last source of rot by investigating, indicting and jailing every wrong-doer and everyone who conspired to protect the guilty in the Epstein case, or America will have sealed its final fall.
