When a person fails to act in good faith, that person is breaking his or her fiduciary duty, word, honor and the bond of trust.  


And when the people we trust fail to act in good faith and lie, cheat, coerce, deceive, defraud and abuse power for selfish gains, we become misled.


There is no reason for law abiding and God fearing people to question people they should trust.  


Should our ministers and priests not speak the truth, separate church from state, render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto the Lord what is the Lord's* and follow the commandments of Christ to love the Lord and our neighbors as self**?


And when we turn on our favorite news channel, should the news not report the facts of the day?  


The unfortunate and tragic problem with being misled is that it inevitably moves people away from everything we should be believing.


The truth becomes convoluted in lies, friendlies become bogies, and salvation becomes damnation as forgiveness is used inappropriately as a means to bypass redemption altogether in the accepting of sins and sinful practices.


What to do when the news media and leaders that should adhere to their fiduciary responsibility and duty to act in good faith, defend the Constitution, their Oath of Office and Christianity do not and trust, truth and honor are breached?  


What would Jesus do?  


Follow blindly Judas demands to follow Caesar?


Believe everything the corrupt and cowards do and say without regard to honoring their duty of care and their duty to act in good faith?





* Matthew 22:21

**Matthew 22:36-40

Duty to Act in Good Faith



Good faith is making good on your word of honor.  


“The duty to act in good faith is a broad legal term that can have different meanings depending on the context. 


It can include:


Honesty: Acting in a sincere or honest way


Fair dealing: Following fair dealing standards


Purpose: Acting for a proper purpose or with an honest belief or purpose


Diligence: Not slacking off or being neglectful


Cooperation: Interacting with others in a way that promotes collaboration”*


When you enter into a contract or an agreement you faithly and honestly fulfill the terms of service.  


When you are an officer on record you must act with conscious fiduciary responsibility of those duties. 


What are some of the consequences when you fail to act in good faith?

Duty to Care

 


What happens when we fail to care or to love our neighbors as self?



Believe it or not (in this climate of constant grooming and attacks upon our democracy), neglecting our duty to care does have consequences not just to our ability to be a decent human being and to live in a decent and safe society, but also to our ability to remain free and not live life behind bars.



Surprise! Breaching our duty to care can involve both civil and criminal liabilities.



How extensive those liabilities may be will depend upon how far the breach of duty goes and the number of times in extent of harm and damages caused.  



“Generally, members of society have entered a social contract that includes a duty to not cause harm to others.”* 



Negligence occurs when a person fails to act with reasonable care and harm befalls an injured party.



The penalties in a civil negligence case will depend upon the damages and punitive damages awarded.



The penalties in a criminal negligence will depend upon the offense committed.  



The types of negligence crimes can “include involuntary manslaughter, negligent vehicular homicide, criminal neglect or endangerment of a child, negligent storage of firearms, or negligent keeping of a dangerous dog”.**



If there are aggravated factors involved then criminal negligence fines and jail terms assessed will be increased; and final sentencing will also depend on the number of counts charged.  



Note, when it comes to penalties for criminal negligence federal penalties will differ from each state as they have their own differences in fines and jail terms. In addition, reckless endangerment can also increase jail time.


So, yes it can be a crime to not care.

Multiple Counts

 


What does it mean in a criminal prosecution to be charged with multiple counts for a crime?  


Well, let's say for example a crime of honest services fraud, 18 U.S.C. 1346, occurred where “an elected official violated his duty to voters by accepting a bribe to vote a certain way”*; and if he took a bribe on multiple occasions then he could be charged for each time he took a bribe.  


If he were to commit a similar scheme to defraud the public by mail, then he could be held criminally liable for each letter or each instance of mail fraud.  


The federal fraud by mail or wire statutes, of which the honest services fraud statute is a part, provides for a fine or a maximum prison sentence of up to 20 years, or both.*


“Prison sentences could total up to well over 100 years”* if more than five fraudulent letters were mailed.  


Keep in mind that aiding and abetting in crimes, such as mail fraud and honest services fraud will carry the same penalty weight as the principal offender.


Again, penalties for one count of mail fraud or honest service fraud are punishable by a fine and imprisonment for up to 20 years. 


Those convicted of one count of enhanced mail fraud can be fined up to $1 million and imprisoned for up to 30 years.*


In addition, the RICO, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act also extends to mail and wire fraud. 


Seven states (Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Arizona, Florida, Rhode Island, Georgia, and Indiana) also have RICO laws.**


Those convicted of RICO face fines up to $25,000 and sentences of up to 20 years in prison per racketeering count.


Know that doubling down on crimes multiple times will only add to the number of counts charged and can add up to much longer prison sentences and greater fines.

Let's Face It



Let's face it.  


The grooming into compromised behaviors and allowing for compromised behaviors, especially in the intelligence community has made it virtually impossible to have honor and loyalty to God and Country.  


Instead, elections are being radicalized by the far right egged on and controlled by the Kremlin and bot farms.

  
The old standard by the intelligence community to wait and gather intelligence has failed miserably to keep anything in check. 
Notebooks of Russian intelligence go missing, simply ordered to be handed off.


Why?  


Blackmail and treason.


As more and more become groomed in sexual abuse crimes of compromised behaviors the intelligence community is simply blackmailed by treason.  


Some get off on sexual abuses, and admire Russia and any autocrats abusing power.


Does it matter that almost every traitor in American history was a sexual abuser or a sexual harasser? 

 
It is not a standard to investigate sexual abuse or sexual assault for not just sexual assaults, but also treason.


Compromised behaviors go uninvestigated and unchecked.  


Some in American politics want to be like Russia.  


What is Russia like today?  


What is so great that these traitors would want America and the world to suffer the same fate?


If America, Asia and Europe fail to follow Germany's* lead in handling Russian spies and wake up to elections being truly stolen and the grooming into deplorable cockroaches and mice then we will fall to tyranny and lascivious sins just to let losers get at absolute power from absolute sin.


If we study history as to why Hitler and so many autocrats failed and how sins of hate will weigh down a country in crimes against humanity and shame, we can see the unsustainability of liabilities in the destruction of people, sociality and humanity.


It is time we wake up and stop the hate, the grooming into blackmail of compromised behaviors and the selling out of our children's freedom and future prosperity and peace to tyrants who only know how to run everything into the ground of economic and moral bankruptcy and destruction of war and hate.
