Greed and power are the only real goals of every person who enters politics.
I do know some honorable people that are involved in local politics. But I agree that to get into the big leagues, it's gotta be all about you or a person would crumble.

Which is why politics is crowded with true psychopaths dying to get in there and roll in all that filthy lucre exposed in the political processes.

And by understanding how the political levers work, they can stay there for 50 plus years reaping up that lucre. WOW, win win for the psychopaths...

Intelligent people with talent don't run for political office because they have talent they can parlay into a meaningful and rewarding career ...and because they're intelligent!

Career politicians lack both so they go into politics!

Leader of Navy shipbuilder in Maine abruptly resigns​

By The Associated PressUpdated April 8, 2022, 9:07 a.m.

The USS Lyndon B. Johnson left tugboats behind as it head out to the Atlantic Ocean, Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022, in Phippsburg, Maine. The warship was the third and final Zumwalt-class destroyer built for the Navy at Bath Iron Works.

The leader of Bath Iron Works, one of the Navy’s largest private shipbuilders, abruptly resigned, the company said.

A terse notification to employees announced Dirk Lesko had resigned from the General Dynamics subsidiary that employs about 7,000 workers.

Lesko led the shipyard through a reset after his predecessor’s stormy relationship with the workforce and then dealt with a tumultuous period that included a pandemic and his own labor troubles including a strike.

There was no reason given for Lesko's departure, which was announced in a two-sentence memo to workers Thursday. Robert Smith, General Dynamics' executive vice president for marine systems, will serve as president temporarily until a permanent successor is chosen.

Bath Iron Works is one of two shipyards that build destroyers for the Navy.

In recent years, Lesko focused on getting caught up on schedule and hiring and training workers. At one point, the shipyard was six months to a year behind schedule on delivering ships to the Navy.

Here's a soon to be resignation... NY Lt. Governor busted for campaign finance malfeasance.

Not sure if it is the doing of the good guys or just the bad guys forcing a change of musical chairs. (I think the later.)

Now, is this the "fall guy" or the real deal?

NY politics are almost as dirty as Chicago

Ironic that the ship in the picture is named after one of the head kingpins responsible for the JFK assassination and is also the man who launched the policies that began the downfall of America. I hope that bastard is frying in Hell right now

Democrat State Lawmaker Abruptly Steps Down Amid Federal Finance Probe Into 20-year Gambling Addiction​

Democrat State Lawmaker Abruptly Steps Down Amid Federal Finance Probe Into 20-year Gambling Addiction


A longtime Louisiana Democrat lawmaker stepped down last week amid a federal financial investigation into her 20-year gambling addiction.

Karen Carter Peterson, 52, made her abrupt resignation public on Friday, citing her need to focus on a decades-long battle with depression and chronic gambling.

‘I must place all of my energy on my mental health and personal well-being, and therefore have tendered my resignation effective immediately,’ Peterson said in a statement.

The former state senator is also the subject of a federal probe, sources told The New Orleans Advocate.

While officials declined to divulge details about the investigation, they confirmed to the outlet that her finances and gambling addiction, first made public in 2019, will be the focus.

Looking at the slates for a local election in this county, in June...I've come to a decision.

I will NOT vote for any more of these wombyns! NOT.

I'll either vote for the opponent, or no one, or write myself in.

But now, 40 years after Grrl Powah became trendy...we see where all these wombyns TAKE the system.

They're a thousand times worse than men. Men, at worst, are violent and avaricious. Wombynz, are TOTALLY controlled by emotions - arousal, greed, hatred, rage. And the desire to Virtue Signal.

What do you guys make of this new "trend" of leadership types resigning and catching the spicy cough. Case in point, the CEO of the local football league resigned a few days ago and now has beer cooties:

I was told the military is in charge. Could it be possible that, in fact, it isn't?

The Deep State is in charge. I have no proof of that that we all haven't seen - just conjecture.

There are probably factions (Woketard generals) of the military in the Deep State; but mostly they're subservient.

This is really the victory of Nazism 2.0. Global Socialism, a Klaus Schwab Production.

Well then, it's a good thing that I didn't take that military being in charge thing too seriously. There are some folks here who still believe it. I hope they turn out to be right but I'm not holding out for it

The military today is not the military that many of us served in.

A military unit is not inherently more moral than other segments of a populace. In fact, the opposite - history is replete with accounts of marauding armies, going in to rape, plunder and burn.

The American military, like American police forces, were inherently different. For different reasons, but they were different and they were forces - most times - for good. Yes, exceptions, I know.

Theirs, in both cases, is the best track record. But we've Transformed both. Incompetent, low-IQ racialists as cops; Woketard females as generals; God, religious beliefs, the Ten Commandments, chased out of the Army, Navy and Marines. What is left, is mostly a vacuum - although the Wokegenerals try to fill it with vague notions of Ray-Sissm, of Globalism, of Equity. And hatred of whites.

April 18, 2022

The Pentagon lost another top IT official on April 18, with the resignation of Preston Dunlap, the founding chief architecture officer of the Air and Space Forces.

In an open resignation letter posted to social media, Dunlap said that he was proud of the three years he spent at the Defense Department but that bureaucracy, a risk-averse culture, and other internal issues made innovation more difficult than it should have been.

He said that the department fostered an environment in which it was “hard, but not impossible” to innovate, and compared the effort required to break through Pentagon bureaucracy to the effort needed to push satellites past Earth’s gravity.

“I’ve spent the last three years working to defy gravity and get desperately needed technology into our operators’ hands,” Dunlap said.

“By the time the Government manages to produce something, it’s too often obsolete; no business would ever survive this way, nor should it.”​
