Chronicles of Madness – Episode 10
In this, our 10th episode of Madness Chronicles, we’ll take a look at some criminals in Congress. Remember, insanity is an especially severe state of mental illness, extremely foolish behavior, and a state of frenzied or chaotic activity. Let’s take a look at some maddening “coincidences” that happen to our politicians. It is simply amazing.
Let’s start with some hectic and chaotic Hillary Clinton activity. Do you realize that in your first year in office as Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation raised a staggering $ 249 million? Did you know that in its first year out of government, the Clinton Foundation raised $ 38 million? Now that is a true coincidence. I’m sure Haitians think so too.
Here’s another fantastic coincidence. Former presidential candidate Kamala Harris is a walking coincidence. He was the San Francisco Prosecutor’s Office for more than ten years. It is said that she is tough on crime. Turns out, it depends on who committed the crime and who supports her. His predecessor, Terence Hallinan, was prosecuting priest abuse cases in the Catholic Church. It was also cooperating with several other states.
DA Hallinan was in an electoral race at the time against none other than Ms. Harris. Suddenly, his campaign began to receive unprecedented sums of money. Harris, who has no particular personal ties to the Catholic Church, suddenly had the support of law firms representing the church and wealthy individuals like the Getty and Governor Jerry Brown, who did have close ties to Catholics. Where is Gomer when you need him? Surprise, surprise, won Kamala Harris, the evidence that District Attorney Hallinan was missing and District Attorney Kamala Harris did not prosecute a single priest for sexual abuse in his tenure as District Attorney. Isn’t it an incredible coincidence?
Stop by Biden’s and you will see more amazing matches. Sleepy Joe, a self-proclaimed blue-collar man, is known for his stance against business and banks. That’s what makes it so amazing when it got out of line. Joe was one of five Democrats who voted against legislation that requires credit card companies to warn consumers about the dangers of paying only minimum payments. Only 1 out of 5, can you imagine? It surely had to be a coincidence when it was revealed at the same time that Hunter Biden was receiving high consulting fees from none other than MBNA Corporation, a major Delaware-based credit card and finance company. What are the odds?
But, as he keeps telling us, it’s about family. While head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Joe led the charge to push for legislation on asbestos damage lawsuits. In what could only be described as a coincidence of ‘what are the odds’, it turned out that Beau’s son was an attorney at a Delaware firm specializing in asbestos damage cases. Some people have all the luck.
And that leads to another lucky man, Cory Booker. The aspiring president first made his way through the mean streets of Yale and Rhodes to become mayor of Newark, New Jersey. One of the first appointments he made was to head the Newark water authority. Linda Watkins-Brashear, a longtime supporter, donor, and close friend, took office. And as the matches progress, spending on the water authority suddenly went up. Not just any expenses though, but expenses like the $ 812,000 in legal fees he paid to the law firm where Mayor Booker previously worked. And in a surprising coincidence, his old law firm still paid the mayor while he was in office. Pennies from heaven or hell, depending on your perspective, I suppose.
What madness there is between us. If you liked the earlier matches in Peter Schweizer’s new book, Profiles in Corruption. I promise it will keep you awake at night. You can’t make these things up. People ask why I never read fiction. Because real life beats it any day.
May we wake up from this madness before it is too late. I wish you good health and until next time … have fun, enjoy life and watch out for the madness between us.
