Democracy died a death when 'Partyocracy' and 'Corporatocracy' Corrupted the System and became the New way to Control People and run a Nation

         


Democracy in theory should be the best political system that can be devised but where unfortunately in practice, it is as good and as bad as all other forms of running a nation by leaders and politicians. But now in the West, where inequality is at its greatest disparity ever and growing, western democracy is corrupt and needs changing.

But the corruption of democracy started when only those deemed fit enough to represent the people were chosen by the 'Party' behind closed doors. For before the party emerged, a people's representatives were elected by the people with a show of hands after 'open' debate. Indeed to succeed today in the 'Party' selection process the candidate has to support most or all that the 'Party' wishes to see happen and in the main, not predominantly what the 'people' want to see happen. Therefore 'PARTYOCRACY' then surmounts democracy for the good of the PARTY and not overridingly for the PEOPLE of a nation. That is the main reason why the vast majority of political promises that get them elected and into power, never happen and the 'people' are let down time and time again.

For once in power the democratic way is further corrupted and diluted as powerful businesses and entities who have financially supported the party to political power, need their payback and directly affect government policy on a whole range of economic and financial policy issues (Laws of the land and economic vested interests).

In this respect one has to only read how the US behind closed doors treated the bankers after the worst financial meltdown in history that impoverished 90% of the world's people further post-the-2008 crash (but where thereafter how government reacted with the taxpayer's money, enriched the top 10% of the world's people) to see that democracy is compromised. In this respect Securities and Exchange Commission prosecuting attorney, James Kidney, said at his recent retirement party on March 27th, that his prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and other mega-banks had been squelched by top people at the agency, because they "were more focused on getting high-paying jobs after their government service than on bringing difficult cases." He suggested that SEC officials knew that Wall Street would likely hire them after the SEC at much bigger pay than their government remuneration was, so long as the SEC wouldn't prosecute those megabank executives on any criminal charges for helping to cause the mortgage-backed securities scams and resulting 2008 economic crash.

But the Obama Administration at the top was no different. In the President's 24 January 2012 State of the Union Address, he said: "Tonight, I'm asking my Attorney General to create a special unit of federal prosecutors and leading state attorneys general to expand our investigations into the abusive lending and packaging of risky mortgages that led to the housing crisis. (Applause.) This new unit will hold accountable those who broke the law, speed assistance to homeowners, and help turn the page on an era of recklessness that hurt so many Americans. Now, a return to the American values of fair play and shared responsibility will help protect our people and our economy."

However, two years later, the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice issued on 13 March 2014 its "Audi of the Department of Justice's Efforts to Address Mortgage Fraud"(http://www.justice.gov/oig/reports/2014/a1412.pdf) and reported that Obama's promises to prosecute turned out to be just a lie. DOJ didn't even try; and they lied even about their efforts. The IG found: "DOJ did not uniformly ensure that mortgage fraud was prioritized at a level commensurate with its public statements. For example, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Investigative Division ranked mortgage fraud as the lowest criminal threat in its lowest crime category. Additionally, we found mortgage fraud to be a low priority, or not [even] listed as a priority, for the FBI Field Offices we visited." Not just that, but, "Many Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSA) informed us about underreporting and misclassification of mortgage fraud cases." This was important because, "Capturing such information would allow DOJ to ... better evaluate its performance in targeting high-profile offenders."

Would you trust this man?
 



Privately, Obama had told Wall Street executives that he would protect them. On 27 March 2009, Obama assembled the top executives of the bailed-out financial firms in a secret meeting at the White House and he assured them (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/20871.html) that he would cover their backs; he promised "My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks" (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2009/04/obama-to-banker/). It's not on the White House website; it was leaked out, which is one of the reasons Obama hates leakers. What the DOJ's IG indicated was, in effect, that Obama had kept his secret promise to them. All cited by Pulitzer Prize winning author Ron Suskind in his publication 'Confidence Men', 2011 (http://archive.is/VxcQx). Therefore if the President of the United States lies to its people, democracy has totally failed the people, as their political leader is corrupt as well together with his Administration.

Unfortunately in Britain behind closed doors the same can be said of all UK Administrations and where 'Democracy' just becomes a mere word when the 'Party' gets into power.


BUT THE QUESTION THAT HAS TO BE ULTIMATELY ASKED IS, HOW CORRUPT REALLY IS the 'Establishment' in the United Kingdom?

For the answer to this, one has only to look at the emerging scandal over the alleged paedophile activities of the Establishment to obtain a small insight into the answer to this uneasy question.

This concerns a recent article in the Daily Mail published on July 19, 2014 (pages 28,29 30) and where this clearly shows that the Establishment is 'inherently' corrupt to the core when their vested-interests are challenged and attacked. Indeed, 'cover-ups' are inevitable from the top down - The article was entitled, 

     'Chilling day special branch swooped to seize ANOTHER dossier on VIP abusers'.

In this respect the article revolved around a substantial dossier on alleged paedophiles at the highest level within the Establishment  - on top of what is supposingly being addressed presently (July 2014 onwards) by themselves the Establishment, but concerning over 114 paedophile accusations files that have gone missing at the Home Office. The following is extracts from the article which concerned a dossier passed on by the late Labour minister of state Barbara Castle to a journalist and what happened to this journalist  in this events' aftermath.

The knock on the door came early one day in the famous dry summer of 1984...and Dale Hale, the young editor of the Bury Messenger, was reading the daily papers at his desk as his reporters were binning to arrive...As Hale, then 31, answered the door, a trio of plain-clothes detectives barged in, followed by dozen police officers in uniform. What happened next was, in Hale's words, 'like something out of a totalitarian East Germany rather than Margaret Thatcher's supposingly free Britain'. The detectives identified themselves as Special Branch...responsible for  of national security.  'They began flashing warrant cards and bark questions' said Hale. 'It was as if they were interviewing a potential criminal rather than a law-abiding newspaper man'. The officers told me that I should abandon plans to print a story that was scheduled to run in our next edition. If I didn't, they told me to expect a long jail sentence.'

Initially bewildered by their threatening tone. Hale soon worked out the purpose of the police visit. The focus of their attention was an incendiary dossier he had been handed a few days earlier by long-serving Labour politician Barbara Castle...and the MP for nearby Blackburn. One of her lifelong interests as a principled advocate... was child protection. To that end, she had become concerned at the rising influence of the paedophile lobby...infiltrating the political Establishment developing links with...senior public figures including MPs, peers, civil servants and police officers.

Mrs. Castle was particularly alarmed, Hale recalls, about the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE)...officially affiliated with the influential National Council for Civil Liberties...'To her frustration, politicians seemed unwilling to discuss this important issue,' says Hale.

So being aware of my investigative work in the local media, she approached me and we agreed to a meeting.'

Over tea and a bun at a local cafe Mrs. Castle opened a battered briefcase and handed Hale a bundle of extraordinary documents. They included typewritten minutes of meetings...held by Westminster in support of the paedophile agenda...with details of...Establishment figures who had apparently pledged support of their cause...No fewer than 16 MPs were on that list...I warned her that I would have to make enquiries...about some contents of the dossier.

...A few days later he (Hale) he put in a call to the Home Office. 'I could detect the antagonism from officials as soon as they answered'...The Institution that should have been protecting vulnerable children seemed more interested in topping the Press from prying too closely.'

It was the morning after Hale made his call to the Home Office that Special Branch officers turned up at the Bury Messenger.

Pushing him (Hale) into a corner, they began barking orders. 'Let me assure you that this story is not in the public interest,'...It cannot be printed, as a matter of national security.'

'That can't be right.', Hale told him (the senior interrogating officer).'Look, we're not here to argue,' the detective responded. 'Are you going to hand over your papers?'

'No', Hale replied.

At this point, the officer produced a document, signed by a judge. It showed that his previous remark about not printing the story had not been a request, but an ORDER. The document...was a D-notice - relic of wartime censorship that could be served on newspaper editors, allowing the Government to block any story that threatened national security.

'If you don't comply with this notice, we will arrest you for perverting the course of justice,' the detective barked. 'You will be liable for up to ten years in prison.'

At this point, Hale's resistance collapsed.

The papers...were swiftly confiscated, as were Hale's notes and even his typewriter (sounds familiar, it is and the very same thing that happened in the Local Authority case previously cited above this  article).  

'When I (Hale) asked the reason for this strange act of expropriation, I was told it was being taken in case of allegations of fraud,' he says (police officer).'You might have typed these statements yourself.' said a detective.

As the police left, Hale was warned never to write about the raid or tell anyone what had happened.

'One point I found interesting was that they all spoke with London accents,' says Hale. Not a single man was from Lancashire. It was obvious this was a Metropolitan Police raid, planned in the capital.

'This was confirmed when, disobeying Special Branch's instructions, I phoned Bury police about the incident. 'They knew nothing of it and were astonished.'

Rather less shocked was Barbara Castle. When Hale saw her a few days later, she told him, 'I thought this might happen.'...'Well, this certainly shows the extent of the cover-up.'...'We are fighting a formidable foe.'

With the D-notice in force not even Mrs Castle could then do anything as the Establishment had through the Judiciary blocked everything . But what the above clearly shows is how corrupt the Establishment is. Indeed since this dossier was erased from existence and in recent times, a  further 117 documents relating to the Establishment's paedophilia accusations have been lost by the Home Office (the most corrupt department in Government).

As a further post-script to the above the Daily mail article also stated,

'This week  a former Tory activist called Anthony Gilberthorpe told a Sunday newspaper that he had been asked to procure under-age boys for drink and drug-fuelled sex parties at political party conferences in the early eighties'

Can we say more about a corrupt Establishment? Probably yes and a great deal more to come !...if  of course justice is allowed to take its course and the Establishment does not undertake possibly the greatest COVER-UP of all time?
