They are traitors who made every effort to shield the foreign espionage Agents who sold US nuclear secrets to her enemies. They are subversives operating against American traditional values. They claim that Jesus lived a self-indulgent life lying to his dimwit Apostles. The subversives stifle the capitalist free market, competition in the factor markets, labor mobility, the unrestricted flow of capital to its best uses and the regulation of financial and industrial robber barons.

They play for pay. The Marxist/Leninists feel free to operate without the constraints of traditional religious and cultural morality. For bribes they enact legislation to allow criminal corporations to run roughshod over ordinary citizens. They finance efforts to promote war, pestilence, disease and famine throughout the world.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have lost their jobs to Americans. If I had a staff of hundreds, we could document the millions of rascals who have betrayed the principles established by the founding fathers. Instead, I have selected Senator John Ensign of Nevada who typifies Senatorial behavior. He is a self-serving Christian, a philanderer and a cad. He cuckolded his best friend who countered on television. A member of the notorious C-Street group, he enlisted his fellows to cover up his adultery with illegal influence peddling. As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, Ensign has participated in the delay of much-needed health care reform. Every day 122 Americans die needlessly because they lack insurance. This is murder. John Ensign and his cohorts have earned the death penalty.

John Ensign Betrayed His Friends and His Country

"In acknowledging the affair, Mr. Ensign cast it as a personal transgression, not a professional one. But an examination of his conduct shows that in trying to clean up the mess from the illicit relationship and distance himself from the Hamptons, he entangled political supporters, staff members and Senate colleagues, some of whom say they now feel he betrayed them."

Mr. Ensign persuaded Senator Tom Coburn, a friend and a fellow conservative Christian resident at C-Street, to negotiate with the Hamptons in May in discussing a large financial settlement supposedly for them to rebuild their lives.

Doug Hampton and John Ensign Knew the Illegality of their acts

They were aware of the lobbying restriction but chose to ignore it. In the video below Hampton discusses how the Senator helped him find clients and gain business contacts in Washington.

"Senate ethics rules and federal criminal law prohibit former aides, if they have "the intent to influence," from making "any communication to or appearance" with any senator or Senate staff member for a year after leaving their jobs. A separate law required Mr. Hampton to register as a lobbyist if he intended to press a company's case on Capitol Hill.

While several citizens' watchdog groups have called for an ethics investigation into Mr. Ensign's conduct, there are no signs of any active inquiries. Mr. Ensign's string of apologies and his back-to-business demeanor in the months since his news conference appear to have helped him ride out the political storm. Over the last week, he made the news again, for opposing a major element of President Obama's health care plans. References to the affair were no longer attached to his name."
