To most of us old guys, the Old Time Pol was classically illustrated by Senator George Washington Plunkitt, the infamous Tammany Hall Philosopher, who boldly stated "I seen my opportunities and I took 'em."
The term defines practitioners of corrupt politics for personal benefit. Graft, skimming, bribery, payoffs, pay-for-play, crony-ism, and general good-old-boy behind-the-scenes cooperation. The sorts of things that made the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, etc., so very rich in office.
They are cooperators in criminal activity. And the whole criminally corrupt Washington Club is not only in on it, but driving it. The Club has become the most powerful political organization in America, and most American politicians are under its criminal thumb.
And that's the real reason so many Republicrats are Never Trumpers, and why they don't really want to prosecute the Bidens or any other Marxocrats, or put them on the witness stand, or even very strongly oppose their political agendas. Because plenty of Republicrats, too, are Old Time Pols. And none of them want to be exposed to the light of day.
The more the swamp is drained, the more political criminal activity is found out, the closer they all come to being exposed themselves. It is trump's amazing success and seeming unstopability that has frightened so many Republicrat Pols into retiring early and leaving their seats open. They saw the writing on the wall and decided to get out of Dodge while the getting was good.
But there's a new Pol in town, historically speaking, and it's the absolutely anti-American Commie-Pol. This corrupt pol came into domination of politics through the progressive domination of American academia, formal education, publishing and the entertainment industries by the insidious Cultural Marxism movement.
The whole nation is being progressively Marxified by this movement.
Marking the successful transition of Marxism-Leninism from incitement to violent revolution into the "Progressive" Marxist domination strategy typified by and being applied by the Clintonistas and the Obamunists.
Commie-Pols are to be found in both Parties, but they absolutely dominate the Marxocrat Party today. Most Republicrats - but not all - are still anti-Communist.
The Marxocrat Party was ripe for Commie takeover because it was always anti-American, in that it was the Party of secession and slavery, and it tried to break up America in the Civil War, and it was bitter after defeat, giving birth to the KKK, Jim Crow and "Segregation Forever".
From Teddy Roosevelt through Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, FDR and Lyndon Johnson, the transition into flat out Marxism was slow and steady. But the '60s era put the movement on steroids, with the then thoroughly Marxist News Media leading the way. Even Lyndon Johnson, a Marxocrat and one of their own, wasn't Leftist enough for them, and they destroyed him. They took him out, and destroyed his Presidency, because he actually tried to win the Vietnam War. Against Communism. can't have that.

And if you don't think these people are seething with violent intent just beneath the public political surface, read the Violent Marxocrat Mindset, and watch the linked expose video of the Bernie field organizer in Iowa. Now we have another Project Veritas violent Marxocrat video, this one of a South Carolina Bernie field organizer, again, calling for the murder of the political opposition. And there are more to come.
This is the product of many generations of Cultural Marxism dominated formal education in America. Increasingly Communist credentialed teachers educating and credentialling multiple generations of ever increasingly Communist teachers to crank out anti-American Communist revolutionaries. Whatever else they teach, in every curriculum and in every subject, they also teach opposition to the establishment, to tradition, to existing institutions and to authority, plain and simple.
How many times over the years have you seen this background teaching dictum repeated all over this website, as a warning of what was to come:
The product of that teaching is both a sociopath and a Communist, and there is really little difference between the two things. We are now seeing the product of all that multi-generational formal education.
The Republicrat Party is, primarily but not entirely, still pro-American and therefore anti-communist, and even anti-Marxist of every variety. Not all, but mostly. However, there may be a majority, especially among those who have been in Washington for many, many years, who are corrupt in the sense of the Old Time Pol definition. Many among them are beholden in some way to powerful Marxocrats, and/or to The Club, and thus their true allegiance is split, at the very least, and unreliable.

The majority in Washington is corrupt, and the longer they've been in office, the more criminally corrupt they are.
They don't really want to get into the criminal corruption of the Bidens, or the Clintons, or the Obamas, or anyone else. They don't want to really investigate Benghazi, or Fast and Furious, or Uranium One, or the Iran Deal, or even the three year plus and still ongoing criminal attempted coup against President Trump.
Better to let sleeping dogs lie.
Because everybody involved in any of those crimes has something on everybody else. Every time any one of them is exposed, there is a possibility of ten more being exposed. That's why no one on the Left ever goes to jail, and that's why no one on the Left is ever even fully investigated, let alone prosecuted.
And that's why so pitifully few on the Right even complain about it.
And why he's doing it singlehandedly.
We had all better giver thanks to God for the rise of Trump, because he is the only sure thing America has going for it.
We don't normally think about politics inside the Catholic Church, and so we don't expect to find anything like the Old Time Pol inside the hierarchy of Bishops who form the Magisterium.
But they are all over the place. They give every appearance of being the dominant force in the hierarchy. And they are totally political; they are certainly not holy men. How could they be?
Comrade Pope Francis has yet to respond to the Dubia, authored by Cardinals Burke, Caffara (RIP), Brandmuller and Meisner (RIP), or to the Filial Correction issued later. So here we stand, waiting for the other shoe to drop. And Comrade Bergoglio keeps sinking the Church deeper into indifferentism, syncretism, Communism, the acceptability of paganism and even LGBTQ-ism. Everything formerly condemned he now embraces and allows, if not blesses. But, apparently, his proposing of ending priestly celibacy may have been a bridge too far.
Pope Emeritus (what the hell does that mean?) Benedict XVI and Robert Cardinal Sarah have spoken out on the issue, in a big and public way.
Here is a concluding quote from these two great Catholic leaders:
Perhaps the other shoe is dropping; who can tell. This may stir some courage in the ranks of the cowardly, and the formerly silent may begin to speak. What is needed, short of the conversion of Comrade Bergoglio to Catholicism, is the deposing of a Pope and a new Enclave to elect a new one.
And a cleaning out of the Catholic house.
That's what's going on at the top of the Catholic fracas; now for a look at what's going on at the bottom, check out the new Vortex, See You In Court.
Michael Voris and Church Militant are suing - get this - the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. Why? Because she was investigating, with a view to prosecuting, Church Militant and St. Michael's Media as a "hate group", because they support marriage between a man and a woman and they speak against same-sex "marriage".
And she got this "hate group" designation of Church Militant, which happens to be the same designation of Catholicism writ large, from, guess who, the typical Marxocrat Party hate group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has nothing to do with poverty and nothing to do with law, and everything to do with anti-Christianity, anti-Americanism, anti-decency and hate.
And that puts the SPLC right in line with Marxocrat Dana Nessel.
If you want to know what an American Attorney General is doing using the power of the office to oppose Catholicism, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and actual truth, look up the "Secretary Of State Project" and others like it, funded by George Soros. He is funding campaigns for attorneys general all over America, to get anti-American and anti-Christian surrogates pressing against culture from the bottom up, while all of his evil Marxocrat politicians press from the top down.
Mark this well:
The world isn't going anywhere worth going without morality.
Morality isn't going anywhere worth going without Christianity.
Christianity, writ large, isn't going anywhere worth going without its solid foundation in the original Christianity of Catholicism.
American isn't going anywhere worth going without her original Constitution and the original Constitution's original foundation in Christianity and Christian morality.
Nobody is going anywhere worth going without Ultimate Truth.
Do something about it while you still can.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
