    RPI: The Fraudulent Obama War on Corruption
    http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives...on-corruption/

    The Obama administration wants Americans to believe that it is fiercely anti-corruption. “I have been shocked by the degree to which I find corruption pandemic in the world today,” declared Secretary of State John Kerry at an Anti-Corruption Summit in London last May. Kerry sounded like the French police chief in Casablanca who was “shocked” to discover gambling. …

    Much of the teeth-gnashing at that summit involved tax evasion. Politicians pledged to share more data on tax records ... Summit attendees castigated hidden offshore bank accounts — ironically, the same type of accounts used by both British Prime Minister David Cameron and Kerry. …

    But the summit largely ignored the brazen corruption of politicians or how it is fueled by western governments, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund. Foreign aid has long been notorious for breeding kleptocracies — governments of thieves. Economic studies have revealed that boosting aid directly increases corruption. …

    The Obama administration has valiantly resisted congressional efforts to stop the payouts to political bandits abroad. … Since Obama took office, the US government has provided more than $50 billion in foreign aid to Afghanistan … “one of the most corrupt countries on Earth.” …

    But on the home front, the Obama administration has scourged persons who disclosed federal abuses. … Obama’s Justice Department launched more than twice as many federal prosecutions for Espionage Act violations as all previous administrations combined. When Obama took office, the United States was ranked as having the 20th-most-free press in the world ... By 2016, it had fallen to 41st — worse than South Africa and barely ahead of Botswana. …

    Kerry joined foreign chieftains in calling for more transparency to fight corruption but he forgot to notify his own State Department. Three days before his speech, the State Department confirmed that it had “lost” all the emails of the I.T. technician who set up the private email server that Hillary Clinton usedNor have we learned the shady details behind our former secretary of State’s shoveling out scores of billions of dollars and special treatment to foreign governments at the same time the Clinton Foundation collected millions of dollars from some of the beneficiaries. Many of the oppressive nations that donated to the Clinton Foundation saw huge increases in approvals for weapons sales …

    US foreign aid is another area apparently exempt from the transparency mandate. … the U.S. government was among the least transparent aid donors in the world, and that it ranked dead last in “reporting of delivery channels (i.e., exactly who received the money).” … “Most foreign assistance programs operate in the dark. No one really knows how the money got there in the first place or where it is going.” …

    Kerry boasted of US government plans “to put $70 million into additional integrity initiative [sic] to help with local police training” … Unfortunately, the Obama administration plans to continue fueling police graft here in the United States. Obama’s Justice Department recently resumed a widely denounced program to reward local and state law-enforcement agencies for confiscating the property of hapless citizens who have been convicted of no crime. … Federal law-enforcement agencies used asset-forfeiture programs in 2014 to seize more property from Americans than all the burglars stole nationwide.

    On the same day as Kerry’s speech, the Government Accountability Office reported that the State Department persistently violates federal law by providing military equipment to the Egyptian government …

    While Kerry proudly excoriated Noriega, he forgot to mention how much money the CIA and other US government agencies had shoveled to that dictator … Noriega is actually the perfect example for Kerry to use on the danger of corruption — except that Kerry did not want to mention the U.S. government’s pro-corruption legacy. Nor did he mention the long legacy of U.S. interventions that subverted democratically elected governments in Latin America. …

    Kerry and Obama are correct that corruption is a pestilence ravaging much of the planet. But the administration’s credibility would be boosted if it had not worsened the problem at home and abroad. …

    Wasn't Clinton his secretary of state?
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Up through 2013, then Kerry took over as his Secretary of State until the present.

    I was trying to point out the obvious corruption present in the government.
