    Nope. He appears to be the most honest and the most common sense politician. The only other politician that I can think of is the late US Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

    Ronald Reagan.


    The Iran-Contra Affair 20 Years On

    Documents Spotlight Role of Reagan


    Washington D.C., November 24, 2006 - On November 25, 1986, the biggest political and constitutional scandal since Watergate exploded in Washington when President Ronald Reagan told a packed White House news conference that funds derived from covert arms deals with the Islamic Republic of Iran had been diverted to buy weapons for the U.S.-backed Contra rebels in Nicaragua.

    The scandal was almost the undoing of the Teflon President. Of all the revelations that emerged, the most galling for the American public was the president's abandonment of the long-standing policy against dealing with terrorists, which Reagan repeatedly denied doing in spite of overwhelming evidence that made it appear he was simply lying to cover up the story.

    This sampling of some of the most revealing documentation (Note 1) to come out of the affair gives a clear indication of how deeply involved the president was in terms of personally directing or approving different aspects of the affair.

    Iceland PM resigns over Panama Papers after protests


    https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/05/iceland-prime-minister-resigns-over-panama-papers-revelations


    Imagine what Congress would look like if they resigned when we found out how corrupt they are. Congress would be almost empty. Publicly financed campaigns are the only way to go. Get the big money out of the government! Maybe then we can finally have a Congress that really cares about the American people.

    BERNIE SANDERS’S STATEMENT ON PANAMA PAPERS

    “I was opposed to the Panama Free Trade Agreement from day one. I predicted that the passage of this disastrous trade deal would make it easier, not harder, for the wealthy and large corporations to evade taxes by sheltering billions of dollars offshore. I wish I had been proven wrong about this, but it has now come to light that the extent of Panama’s tax avoidance scams is even worse than I had feared.

    “My opponent, on the other hand, opposed this trade agreement when she was running against Barack Obama for president in 2008. But when it really mattered she quickly reversed course and helped push the Panama Free Trade Agreement through Congress as Secretary of State. The results have been a disaster.

    “The American people are sick and tired of establishment politicians who say one thing during a campaign and do the exact opposite the day after the election.

    “It is time for real change. As president, I will use my authority to terminate the Panama Free Trade Agreement within six months. My administration will conduct an immediate investigation into U.S. banks, corporations and wealthy individuals who have been stashing their cash in Panama to avoid taxes. If any of them have violated U.S. law, my administration will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.”

     The Panama Papers Are Only the Beginning

    Financial crimes and political conspiracies aren’t discrete events but the essence of neoliberalism.

    "As secretary of state, Clinton successfully pushed for the passage of free-trade agreements with Colombia and Panama, which, as Clark Mindock and David Sirota point out, make the kind of offshore tax evasion revealed by the Panama Papers even more pervasive (more than 850 Colombians are named in what is so far released of the Panama Papers, including founders and financiers of death squads). Hillary and Bill Clinton are deeply embedded in Colombia, as Ken Silverstein, along with others, has reported (FYI: Silverstein wrote on Mossack Fonseca for Vice nearly a year and a half ago). Hillary counts Álvaro Uribe (who represented the death-squad wing of Colombian politics) as a close ally, with profits from Colombia’s petroleum industry pouring into the Clinton Foundation. As to Honduras, Clinton’s role in legitimizing the 2009 elections that Lobo won (with an assist from Sepúlveda) is well known, largely as a result of the recent murder of the environmentalist Berta Cáceres. And in Mexico, Peña Nieto has accelerated the privatization of the national oil industry, a project that, e-mails reveal, Clinton’s State Department helped make happen.

    When asked why none of the information so far seemed to implicate US-based individuals or businesses, the editor of Süddeutsche Zeitung said, “Just wait for what is coming next.” Let’s see."

    Actually it's Deutsche Bank. Deutsche is the German word that refers to the German people. Stop illiteracy whenever you find it.

    Good to know. That is actually how I typed it but then I looked again at how they spelled it and I changed it.

    It looks like they updated the article as well.
