Political Hookers Resurrect Keystone Pipeline

Trump and his 1% Pals Laugh at Masses

by Victor Epstein - Mar-24-2017
in Market Supremacy News

Apparently, no one in the mainstream news media saw the Keystone Pipeline being resurrected by our Korrupt Korporatist Kongress after the presidential election. Even though we predicted it four times at The Cynical Times.

How did we know?

We understand the U.S. is no longer either a functioning democracy or even a functioning society, where policy is crafted to advance the greater good.

Instead, our government is a protection racket in which political hookers auction public policy to big corporations in what can only be described as Kongressional profit sharing. Our elected officials wash the bribe money clean through excessive speaking fees, insider trading tips, donations to their family charities, and low-show jobs for their pampered offspring.

It's a government whose sole purpose is to expand its income from legalized bribes in much the same way big business grows profit and revenue each quarter to curry favor with investors.
