Ronald Reagan and Corruption…the Truth Behind the Lies

~~~

The Republicans and the Corporate-Controlled-Media have spent the last 30 years trying to convince us that Ronald Reagan was wonderful. The reality is just the opposite…

Reagan ran the most corrupt administration of the 20th century.

By the end of his term, 138 Reagan administration officials had been convicted, had been indicted, or had been the subject of official investigations for official misconduct and/or criminal violations. In terms of number of officials involved, the record of his administration was the worst ever.

Jim was currently waiting patiently in his small cell. He had been enjoying the time he spent alone in there but he knew that soon enough he would be stuck with someone he’d be forced to choke. He liked things kept neatly in the place and most of the criminals had nasty habits.

The young looking man that several guard escorted to his cell was certainly not what he was expecting. Jim simply looked at them with dead empty eyes, curious as to what he had been convicted of.

Border Patrol agent convicted of drug trafficking


Michael Atondo, 34, was arrested in April while on duty near the U.S.-Mexico border, with 44 marijuana bundles stacked neatly inside his marked border-patrol vehicle.A federal jury in Phoenix found him guilty of conspiracy to import marijuana, conspiracy to possess marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona said.”This agent crossed the line into criminal conduct and violated his oath and the public’s trust,” acting U.S. Attorney Ann Birmingham Scheel said in a statement.”This circumstance, although rare and regrettable, sends a clear message — that corrupt law-enforcement officials are not above the law and they will be brought to justice,” she added.Atondo, assigned to the Wellton, Arizona, substation in the western part of the state, faces up to 40 years in prison on each offense and a fine of up to $2 million. He is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on January 9.Prosecutors said Atondo was supposed to have been on patrol in Wellton on April 4 but set off a sensor miles away in a remote stretch of the desert near San Luis, Arizona.Agents responding to the sensor found Atondo’s government-issued truck backed up to the border fence with the rear door open and three other vehicles nearby.Roughly 745 pounds of marijuana was discovered in the vehicle’s rear compartment during a later search. The market value of the seizure was estimated to be $371,000.Border Patrol corruption has been on the rise in recent years as the U.S. government has added more agents to its ranks in an attempt to better secure the nation’s sprawling southwestern border with Mexico.The U.S. Department of Homeland Security reports that 129 agents were arrested on corruption charges from 2003 to 2009.
