A Comprehensive List of the US Government’s Crimes and Mismanagement (1/3)

The cover image of every post in this series is one of the many variants of Irish Regiment Flags in use during the US Civil War. North or South, the major design elements are the same, with some combination of: a green field, a gold harp, the sun shining through clouds, and a gold inscription either directly on the green background or a red banner.

The title says it all. Similar to the earlier entry where I cataloged various instances of Police Brutality, here’s a collection of the US Government’s major crimes, abdications of duty and harmful policies towards the citizens of this and other countries. This project will serve as a companion piece to the earlier Declaration of Grievances Against the United States Government, as proof such a rebuke is valid.

I admit that my efforts here amounted to a somewhat less than fully comprehensive list; the scale of US atrocities is so large that no one person could compile all of them. I also acknowledge that the grouping and classification of the materials can absolutely be improved upon for ease of browsing. Please keep in mind that this is still a rough draft, and for this first step in the process, my focus was to collect as many sources as possible. That alone was a herculean task, as was tediously copying every article’s title and URL to make clickable links. My thinking is, either I could have held off on posting this collection until it was absolutely 100% perfect and orderly, which would probably take the better part of 6 months to a year. In that scenario, either the endeavor becomes an albatross around my neck, preventing me from enjoying any other projects because I feel I have to complete it ASAP, or I continuously put it off to focus on articles that are more enjoyable to work on, and thus the process takes much longer. At least by publishing my work as I go, the ongoing project, flawed though it might be in the meantime, might at least provide readers with a good idea of the scope and severity of our nation’s troubles.

This will be an ongoing project as I find more information to share, and if you have any stories you know I missed, feel free to share them in the comments or via email. Part one will constitute failures to ensure the well-being of the American people, infrastructure and land. Part two will be comprised of corruption/incompetent waste in various agencies, legislation, crony capitalism and foreign adventurism. Part three shall explore the fundamental breakdown of civility, constitutional norms and wrongdoing from unelected agencies. The notations underneath each embedded flag, including the cover images, link to articles dealing with historical discrimination against racial minorities.

There will be a redundancy of information in many articles included with this series. This is to safeguard against articles getting taken down or skepticism levied against any particular source.

For anyone who would say that criticism of the United States is immoral or unpatriotic, I refer them to the immortal words of my favorite American policy-maker, Senator McGovern.

  1. Glad to see you finished this monumental project. I don’t have time to look at many of the sites now. But this should prove to be a value to researchers. Good Job Cassandra.
