Soooo, you thought that 'nice' man at the walk-thru was just going to 'check' your bag contents.....Well, it seems he's digging a little deeper into your pocketbook - Its your possessions he' REALLY after....

is Rampant Within the Department of Homeland Security

Stealing…drug smuggling…falsifying records…human trafficking—what in the
world is going on within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, under the
“leadership” of Secretary Janet Napolitano?

During an August 1st hearing held by the House Oversight and
Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Organization, Efficiency and
Financial Management, acting Inspector General (IG) of DHS, Charles Edwards,
admitted that his office is overwhelmed by all the criminal
allegations against DHS employees, and he has asked the Obama administration for
50 additional investigators just so he can work on the complaints
within his own organization!

Right now, the IG’s office is dealing with 1,591 OPEN criminal cases and convictions
have steadily increased since FY 2004.

According to information released at the hearing:

Since 2004, around the time the Department of Homeland Security began, 2,527
DHS employees have been convicted of corruption and criminal misconduct:

  • * 138 Customs & Border Protection (CBP) employees have been charged for
    crimes such as collaborating with drug smugglers;

  • * Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have been charged with
    embezzlement and filing fraudulent travel claims;

  • * Terrence J. “TJ” Bonner, retired president of the National Border Patrol
    Council (the union representing U.S. Border Patrol Agents)
    , was indicted by a
    federal grand jury in San Diego late last week for diverting hundreds of
    thousands of dollars in union funds for personal use, conspiring to commit
    fraud, wire fraud, and he has been charged with various pornography offenses;

  • * New York ICE Special Agent in Charge, James T. Hayes, has brought a sexual
    suit against Secretary Janet Napolitano;

  • * Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers in various cities have
    been charged with smuggling drugs through airports, taking bribes in order to
    allow drug couriers safe passage, and have been caught stealing from passengers’

    What does anyone expect when the very top is corrupt? Those folks think it gives them a license for bad behaviour.

    It's inevitable.

    You know how I see this? We have a crook at the head of government who has successfully appointed a huge number of unethical and criminal leaning if not downright criminal people to head up agencies so as to tear down more of our national fabric; and this is what we get. A government that is more corrupt than any other president's term in office EVER!!!!! They all need to be arrested and hung out to dry; like life sentences for high crimes against the American people - and as for 0vomit - well, folks, he is the worst of all of them and the ringleader - need I say more?

    It is sad when you can't trust the government anymore. They are so corrupt like the Chicago style crooks.. I think Obama style politics rubbed off on them. I heard Janet Napolitano has charges against her for harassment .I don't know what kind of harassment....Couldn't be sexual. So you know?

    Clinton did his part with 'In Your Face' corruption in his day to pave the way for radical Obama and his stench.

    I just sit and shake my head any more at the news of corruption and immorality that is spreading like wildfire. It seems that people are losing all sense of self-respect, pride, decency, morals, and the law. It's no wonder that so many of the young people are so disgusted and discouraged with life. What a fine example is being set before them.
  • snell/G... Texas Gal 2012/08/27 19:07:59

    They're not 'losing' their morality - they're deliberately 'giving it up'.

    That is more accurate.
  • DeborahLakeHelen 2012/08/26 02:25:41
    Add the horrific, despicable and demented practice of Child Porn to the list. If it's criminal, they're involved.
  • bman~AVA~BTTB 2012/08/26 01:17:23 (edited)
    Yeesh! What the heck is going on with our law enforcement officials these days!?!?!? It's bad enough that our president is destroying the country but now we've got our law enforcement officials doing the very same thing! It sounds like it's past time to call out our local militias to come in and start cleaning house. I've said it before and I'll say it again, there's nothing dirtier than a dirty cop. They're supposed to be protecting us and here they are robbing us blind!

    however if we call on our local militias - someone's gonna get shot in the cross-fires. But i understand and share your sentiment. Life is swiftly spiraling out of control.
  • bman~AV... snell/G... 2012/08/27 19:49:41
    This is true about the innocents getting hit in the cross fires and you're right my friend. Life really "is" spiraling out of control. And it seems to be picking up steam on a daily basis.
  • rightside 2012/08/25 17:33:16
    Clean them out! Wipe them away and restructure and get something better. The entire government is corrupt and we need to clean house.

    Oh they 'did' something alright - it was the wrong thing - but they did something...
  • bman~AV... Vision ... 2012/08/26 01:19:55
    Agreed only they did worse than nothing. They decided to take a walk on the dark side and start stealing from the very public that they are supposed to be protecting here.
  • BIGBlackPETER 2012/08/25 14:03:38
    This is the worst administration ever!!! PERIOD!!!!
  • Temlakos~POTL~PWCM~JLA~☆ 2012/08/25 12:35:52
    It's very plain that those people don't care about their jobs. They use them to make money on the side. This is "law enforcement," Soviet-style. Soviet LEO's took bribes all the time.

    Corruption is everywhere, not just in government.
  • bman~AV... S. Gompers 2012/08/26 01:24:40
    You're right my friend. Corruption is part of what got our president into office

    And judging from things, corruption is far from being over.
  • bman~AV... S. Gompers 2012/08/26 18:07:50
    Sadly you are very right here my friend. I don't know what it's gonna take to stop it but it needs to be stopped for sure

    She's not called Janet Incompitano for nothing my friend. Like her boss Obie she's caustic.
