Who was the "big guy"?

Could there be other "big guys" in Washington? Where you find one there's bound to be another. How can this ever be cleaned up?
One approach being pursued in other countries is to seal up the cracks with legal caulking by tightening requirements for universities, investment laws and campaign donation reporting. Then there are counter-intel equivalent of roach bait traps.
This is not necessarily an R or D problem. It's a system wide problem, the unintended consequence of Open Borders.
One puzzle. If the Big Guy was only in for 10 he doesn't seem very Big.
The whole scheme sounds ramshackle and low rent.

One of the biggest drivers of deforestation is road construction and mass unemployment. Subsistence agriculture is the social safety net of inefficient economies.

"For centuries, ranchers have used fire to clear fields and new land. But this year, drought worsened by climate change turned the wetlands into a tinderbox and the fires raged out of control."
It is often a poor property regime that drives the destruction of what are in effect the commons. Govt ownership is very often the worst way to manage land. Effectively using land near existing roads removes the incentive to harvest raw nature.

"There is another danger, this one from the left. And unlike Trump, this one has attained cultural dominance, capturing America's elites ... In the event of a Biden victory, it is hard to imagine it meeting resistance. ... I am here to ring the alarm."

"No one has yet decided on the name for the force that has come to unseat liberalism. Some say it’s 'Social Justice.' The author Rod Dreher has called it 'therapeutic totalitarianism'.”
"At some point, it will have a formal name, one that properly describes its mixture of postmodernism, postcolonialism, identity politics, neo-Marxism, critical race theory, intersectionality, and the therapeutic mentality."

Repair company should be ashamed of itself for examining computer allegedly belonging to H. Biden.

Despite their lofty social positions it's possible that some famous people are really naive in regard to how computers work.

This is no ill reflection on them, just an observation on the deplorable cluelessness of mankind overwhelmed by the information revolution. We are most of us in over our heads.

In answering the puzzle of how ACB can be in the running for SCOTUS while having 7 children it may be useful to remember what older generations knew. In big families siblings looked after each other.
Actually "Christian women with large families" weren't freaks but comprised a substantial percentage of the population of what was called Western Civilization, including the Greatest Generation. The challenge is for moderns to equal their survivability of their predecessors.

The biggest cause of turnover in Washington for both parties is old age and natural death.
"In total, 98% of all incumbents were re-elected.

Congressional elections are stagnant, and because of the high invincibility of House incumbents, very few districts are truly competitive."

Joe Biden for example was elected to the Senate 47 years ago and was continuously returned until he became veep in 2009. He's typical.

'OK but time to move on.' Democracy doesn't die in the darkness. It expires in the trash can.
The news cycle in the short term memory of politics. History is the medium term equivalent. The incalculable current of causality is the longest term and remembers everything.
"Clinton actually did what she accused Trump of doing: She colluded with Russians ... in order to damage Trump’s campaign and cinch the election for herself."
