Recently, DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart was questioned about the problems with DEA agents enjoying prostitutes’ services apparently provided by the very cartels those agents were sent to investigate in Colombia. During that hearing, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC), kept asking why Leonhart had no authority to impose punishment for such behavior. This video, from that part of the hearing, needs to be seen by U.S. citizens/voters to understand fully just how much corruption apparently operates within federal government agencies at various levels.
The exchange between Rep. Gowdy and Ms. Leonhart is the most outrageous indication of the total ineffectiveness of U.S. government federal agencies at some levels of responsibility, and needs to be seen and heard to be believed, I think.
It is totally outrageous how the ‘corporate culture’ seemingly operates within the U.S. government, and possibly at all levels of governance anywhere in the USA, sad to have to admit, I offer.
One of the prime suppliers of “gifts” to elected officials in the USA is a group of professionals—lobbyists. Until a very short and strong leash is attached to that profession, I contend that U.S. citizens will experience more and more ‘corporate governance’ at all governance levels—state and federal.
Some examples of such corporate influences are:
- Big Pharma’s control over the U.S. FDA;
- Monsanto’s control over FDA, EPA, and even USDA, since it’s been able to force-sell genetically modified crops onto the entire nation without their even being labeled;
- Utility companies forcing Smart Meters, which emit radiofrequency non-ionizing radiation, on to customers, while those who refuse SMs have their electricity shut off!
Lobbyists and their money-influencing culture—even foreign cartels understand how ‘perks’ influence corporate and government agencies’ cultures—need to be reined in. Lobbyists supply a tremendous amount of “gifts” to elected officials that influence YOUR life and how YOUR government even takes away YOUR rights in favor of vested corporate interests. Forced vaccinations are an indication, too. See who’s behind introducing vaccine exemption bills. The recent MMR-Autism Study fiasco is a perfect example.
For instance, the organization that conducted the study is the Lewin Group, a corporate healthcare consulting firm based in Falls Church, Virginia. The Lewin Group works with a wide range of players in the medical establishment. Most notably major pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Novo Nordisk among others. It should be noted that at least two out of these three corporations are not only vaccine proponents, they are vaccine manufacturers. The Lewin Group also works with a number of major medical and pharmaceutical associations and organizations like the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America association.
In addition to working with the federal, state and local governments, the Lewin Group works with a variety of foundations such as the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Heritage Foundation as well as a large number of hospitals, health systems, and healthcare providers. The Lewin Group is especially involved in major medical insurance programs like Blue Cross Blue Shield, Health Now New York, LA Care Health Plan, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Wellcare among many others.
