Pattern of Congressional Cover-Ups
Since 1964, Enabling Greed, Corruption,
And Repeated National Tragedies

The start of discovering corruption of people in key government positions by federal airline safety investigator Rodney Stich started in 1964, with the discovery of other areas of criminal activities continuing to this day. Arising from his numerous attempts to expose the corruption and bring about a reduction in the relating tragedies, Stich published books and appeared on hundreds of radio and TV shows starting in 1978. This publicity caused a steady stream of other government agents and insiders to contact him with information on criminal activities in other areas of government that they had either discovered as part of their official duties, or in which they were directly involved.

These people included government agents from such departments as the CIA, FBI, ONI, DEA, Customs, Secret Service; former drug smugglers; and former Mafia figures.

Upon discovering these crimes against the United States, starting while he was a federal agent, he repeatedly reported them to members of Congress, offering to provide evidence and testimony.

In the early states, members of Congress admitted the gravity of the charges, none ever disputed them, but those that responded stated that the matters were not in their areas of responsibilities.

All federal personnel have a special duty to receive evidence of a federal crime under the federal crime reporting statute. And if they refuse to receive information offered to themwhich under criminal statutes they must receivethen they are guilty of obstructing justice. And everyone has a duty under federal statutes to report to a federal official a federal crime that they believe to exist. That is the law.

When the criminal activities are ongoing, and the harm from them are continuing, then anyone who in any way fails to receive information of a federal crime, is guilty of an even greater offense arising from the harm caused by the underlying offenses.

Overview of Consequences From
Congressional Cover-Ups

Cover-ups by most members of congress since the early 1960s are detailed in the books written by insiders, starting with the documented misconduct within the FAA closely related to the United Airlines crash into New York City and other air tragedies. Professionals in government brought these serious matters to the attention of members of Congress who had oversight responsibilities, and responsibilities under federal criminal statutes. 

During the last half of 2006, many forms of congressional corruption surfaced, including active and passive demands for bribes from lobbyists and special interests; secret earmarks costing billions of dollars, many for prior bribes; corrupt activities between members of Congress and K-Street lobbyists; pedophile activities; and cover-ups of all these activities. The most flagrant corruption by members of Congress being exposed were of Republicans.

However, these were only the tip of the iceberg. The others involve members of Congress from both parties, and the blowback or ripple effects of the corruption and the cover-ups are far beyond what almost anyone can comprehend. It is these other areas of corruption that are never spoken about, and which involves not only members of Congress, but key people in the three branches of government, many media people, and others.

These are the matters revealed by courageous, and foolish, insiders. This page addresses the corruption by members of Congress, including those showing the most outrage in 2006 at the publicized corruption. This is not to minimize the gravity of the corruption in the republican congress, but to show that corruption throughout congress, of even greater gravity, has yet to be made known to the people.


Sampling of Tragedies Made Possible
By Repeated Congressional Cover-Ups

The tragedies inflicted upon the public by the congressional cover-ups include, for instance:

Butterfly Ripple Effects on 9/11

Misconduct by people involved in each of these air disasters (and many in between) were key personnel within the FAA, members of congress due to their cover-ups, and many others. Ironically, misconduct by key United Airlines personnel that resulted in the DC-8 calamity aided and abetted, or fueled, the internal FAA corruption that made possible the hijacking of two United Airlines jets on September 11, 2001. There are many other ironies behind the loss of 3,000 lives on September 11, 2001, that are revealed in the books: Unfriendly Skies: 20th and 21st Centuries, and Blowback, 9/11, and Cover-Ups.

Understanding the tragic ripple effects of the corruption in the various government activities, enabled to occur by the endemic cover-ups, might possibly shock the American people out of their complacency.

These ripple effects will continue, made possible by virtually every group described here.

Blatant Practice of Bribes and Tragic
Contempt for the Public and the Country

Publicized bribing of members of Congress in the Abramoff scandal (only the latest such exposure) will help understand the cover-ups and obstruction of justice by most members of Congressand the consequencessome of them deadly.

The most publicized recent consequence of the congressional cover-ups, obstruction of justice, and duplicity was the September 11, 2001, terrorism that could not have succeeded if members of Congress had exercised their moral and legal oversight responsibilities instead of criminally covering up for the crimes. The involvement of large numbers of people in Congress insures that there will not be an investigation into why the multiple federal agencies with responsibilities to take preventative actions did not exercise that mandatory obligation. IF there ever is a congressional "investigation," it will be a continuation of the long history of congressional cover-ups that have been so destructive to the people and U.S. interests. 

Over the next 40 years, as government insiders brought evidence of corrupt and criminal activities to their attention, congressional cover-ups continued. These matters are detailed in the books written by insiders.

Pattern of blatant bribes impliedly demanded or specifically demanded, subverting national interests to self-serving financial interests.

Lawsuit Against Members of Congress 
To Make Official Report of Their Corruption

Partly to make a record, but also authorized under Title 28 U.S.C. 1361, former federal air safety inspector Rodney Stich filed a federal lawsuit against members of Congress in the U.S. district court in the District of Columbia. The intent of the lawsuit was to seek a court order requiring the members of Congress listed as defendants to perform their legal duty requiring them to receive information about criminal and subversive activities in the government agencies for which they had oversight responsibilities. Another lawsuit was filed against the members of Congress from California, which was filed in the federal courts at Reno, Nevada.

Their response to this lawsuit did not deny any of the charges that they were covering up for the criminal activities. Their only response was that as members of Congress they were totally immune against lawsuits.

The filing of the lawsuit and their response indicated that they knew of the serious charges. Under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. 4, each member of Congress that was contacted concerning the criminal activities had the responsibility to receive the information and the supporting evidence, which they refused to do. This made them guilty of misprision of a felony, a crime for which many men and women have been sent to federal prison for infractions that were inconsequential in relation to the damage caused by the cover-up of members of Congress.

Ripple Effects of the Corruption
And Cover-ups on 9/11

To help understand how the hijackings of four airliners on 911 occurred and the relationship to the problems former federal safety agent Rodney Stich discovered and tried to report and correct, consider the following:

The following catastrophic events could not have happened but for the documented complicity by many members of Congress:


The 2006 Publicity of Congressional
Corruption: Tip of the Iceberg

In 2006, an even worse series of corrupt actions by members of Congress was revealed, sending some to prison. Even though the corruption was worse among Republicans, the corruption of the Democrat members of Congress was not far behind. The record shows that all of them have repeatedly engaged in corrupt acts.

A big deal has been made about the cover-up of the pedophile activities of Congressman Foley. But far worse cover-ups have occurred of corruption that made possible horrendous consequences for the United States and its people.

The misconduct exposed priors to the 2006 elections related to bribes, lobbyists, earmarks, pedophile activities, and cover-ups. But these were only the tip of the iceberg.

The corrupt practices involving members of Congress constantly are exposed, but even though are just the ones who don't manage their bribes and corruption in a more subtle manner.

Complicity in Starting Two
Major and Endless Wars

In addition to covering up the corrupt activities that enabled terrorists to easily hijack and inflict catastrophic tragedies upon the United States on September 11, 2001, but most then aided and abetted the serial lying by President George Bush and his cabinet shills that plunged the United States into the deadly quagmires in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Dead American GIs, Stretching 19 Miles
End-to-End, Killed on Basis of Political Lying

These wars on the basis of lies were extensions of the invasion of Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Grenada, Panama, Cuba, and has left a trail of over 100,000 dead American GIs, ,whose bodied, if laid end to end, would stretch for 19 miles. And then the even greater number of maimed and injured military personnel. And then, the millions of people in foreign countries that were killed while defending against the American invaders. Doesn't say much for the intelligence of the average American, or the character of the American people!

And again, thousands of deaths are the ripple or butterfly effects from unrecognized misconduct by members of Congress and the many other enablers in the United States.

Complicity in Housing and Financial Frauds

Members of Congress have been repeatedly involved in housing and financial frauds. Among the worst in recent memory were the savings and loan frauds that involved the Keating Five, including Senator John McCain, and more recently, the housing and financial frauds that surfaced for the public in 2007, with no end in sight for the harm upon the American people and upon the United States.

With millions in bribes received from the housing and financial sectors, members of congress either aggressively removed the legal protections that opened the gate for massive financial frauds, or remained quiet as the frauds were blatantly obvious to them.

Cover-Ups and Obstruction of Justice:
Standard Culture in Congress

Records and court filings reveal years of cover-ups (i.e. obstruction of justice) by most members of Congress after former government insiders reported criminal and even subversive activities to them. Most of the criminal activities brought to their attention were resulting in deaths, great personal and financial harm, and harm to national security.

For instance, among the corrupt and criminal activities brought to the attention of members of Congress by former federal agent Rodney Stich and his group of other insiders included:

These are hard facts, supported by letters to members of Congress, federal lawsuits, and books written by former government insiders. And these matters are just a small part of the history of corruption perpetrated and made possible by people throughout government.

In the early 1990s, former federal agent Rodney Stich filed two lawsuits against members of Congress describing the cover-ups by members of Congress of criminal and even subversive activities.

These include a lawsuit filed shortly before 9/11 exposing the corruption in the government's aviation safety offices, the corruption in the FBI and CIA that constitute the primary and unpublicized areas of primary and secondary areas of blame that enabled four groups to terrorists to hijack four airliners on 9/11.

And a lawsuit filed shortly after 9/11, seeking to expose the ongoing corruption that made 9/11 possible. The judicial cover-up continues the culture of corruption that will bring on more deadly consequences. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)

These are hard facts, supported by letters to members of Congress, federal lawsuits, and books written by former government insiders. And these matters are just a small part of the history of corruption perpetrated and made possible by people throughout government.

Members of Congress in Catch-22 Situation

The so-far futile attempts by former federal agent Rodney Stich to expose the corruption in key government offices ensnared in hundreds of letters and documents the complicity by members of Congress in some of America's greatest tragedies. For that reason, members of Congress will never conduct hearings on their involvement in these great tragedies.

Time and time again, members of Congress blocked the presentation of evidence of ongoing criminal activities associated with an ongoing series of resulting personal and financial tragedies. The consequences includes deaths in fraud related airline disasters, the 9/11 events, the various housing and financial frauds inflicting great personal and financial harm upon the American public, and involvement in numerous wars, including the latest deadly quagmires in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Never before have so many records been made of their corruption and effect upon the nation and its people. The record of such relationships is now so great that it is a virtual certainty that the system will not allow the public to recognize what has been done to them.

The same Catch-22 applies to every other group that engaged in either the direct corruption or the cover-up corruption. None can allow the people to learn and understand the truth.

American People Share Blame
For Congressional Corruption

For years, courageous (and foolish) government insiders risked, and suffered, retaliation for trying to report these corrupt and subversive conditions in government to the people. Pathological apathy and denial, their willingness to accept the outrageous serial lying and cover-ups by their politicians and media personnel, their cowardice when outrage was required, made possible almost every misfortune that has fallen upon the American people and the United States.

Probably at no time in the history of the United States has such a large percentage of the American public exhibited these failings, making possible almost every threat and harm now affecting the American people.

History shows that it is improbable to expect things to change for the better.
