Posted on 07/26/2012 3:20:21 PM PDT by arasina
Those wondering why the Department of Justice has refused to go after Jon Corzine for the vaporization of $1.6 billion in MF Global client funds need look no further than the documents uncovered by the Government Accountability Institute that reveal that the now-defunct MF Global was a client of Attorney General Eric Holder and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuers former law firm, Covington & Burling. Theres more.
Records also reveal that MF Globals trustee for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy retained as its general bankruptcy counsel Morrison & Foerester--the very law firm from which Associate Attorney General Tony West came to DOJ.

For the list.
Campaigns ain’t cheap ya know.
Is there an end at all to the corruption among these mobsters?
That's me, AKA Travis McGee. Please read this if you have a minute.
These 0bamunist goons are so filthy and corrupt they make Al Capone look like the poster boy for ‘clean government’.
We need an Elliot Ness as portrayed by Kevin Costner to go ‘Nitty’ on these bastards.
I’ve bookmarked it to read soon. Do you believe (drug) money laundering is involved?
When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed.
Can you say “conflict of interest”?
thanks for post
That's all true, except that I disagree with Ayn Rand in that I believe a new and better society can rise from the ashes. It's actually not a "new" society so much as it is a return to the moral one based on Christian principles.
“These 0bamunist goons are so filthy and corrupt they make Al Capone look like the poster boy for clean government.”
Corzine is heavily involved too. Where did all of that Obama “stimulus money” go to Corzine ?
A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague. The traitor is Obama and his administration.
That is superb writing, and I have done exactly what was recommended, which is to save the entire essay to my hard drive “just in case”.
You’ve got a lot o’ guts Sir, and I salute you.
I am uncomfortable with this whole "bundling" thing. It used to be that we rarely heard of it (Xing Wu, Chinatown bundler for Hillary Clinton who got arrested) and now it is ubiquitous and made out to be a good thing. (thanks, McStain)
The bundling process reminds me too much of the mortgage scandal. [brain freeze - cannot remember what the equivalent is called - has to do with selling bad loans] They share the same "principle". Travis McGee is right; it's gangster government.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
MF global and John Corzine were very close to the Obama Administration. The SEC and other regulators allowed Corzine and MF Global to violate laws and regulations and steal over $1 billion. The Obama Administration is corrupt. They are criminals.
I predict a whole fleet of Stanley Steemer trucks in front of the white house in January of ‘13. At least. Hazmat suits, gas masks, etc. Those guys are so dirty the mind boggles.

Marcus Tullius Cicero, murdered as an "enemy of the state" for speaking out against tyranny
I wanted to make sure this part of your quote was properly attributed to its author. ;-)
Loud 'n clear...
Reminds me that my question was——just how much is Holder worth now? In crooked money, of course.
When you look up the term “political incest” in a political dictionary, you will find a picture of Eric Holder.
Also, when you look up the term “racist”, there’s his picture again.
He sure does get around. I hope the next time he gets around it is in a 6 X 10’ jail cell.
” This federal criminal syndicate in Washington is beyond saving, only Thomas Jefferson’s wisdom regarding the watering of the Tree of Liberty will save us now. It can no longer be ‘business as usual’ because business as usual means we continue our descent into darkness and a long night of 100 years or more of tyranny.
God help us. God save America. “
Says it all!
Imagion what is going on this minute that has not been revealed. Corzine news is what 3 -4 months old? Yea it’s bad, And it keeps coming daily, so fast that the bad news gets run over by more bad news.
No. How many generations of kennedys, bushes, daleys, et al are already carrying on the evil legacies? Time to become a nation of janitors with very big brooms.
Have had this saved for awhile now. It becomes more sickeningly relevant every damn day.
Someone in the Chicago mafia will slip up at some point and you will get your wish. Patience, Max, patience.
See what happens to people who write a bad check in Texas.
This is beyond the pale.
A dictator almost always takes over when a republic falls.
Scandal after after scandal heaped upon more scandals that reach to the moon, and Obama The Oppressive and his merry band of political gangsters are still standing. Nothing that gets exposed betwixt now and November will matter, and maybe they even welcome sideshows that deflect attn away from the collapsing economy. Wouldn’t surprise me.
” The bundling process reminds me too much of the mortgage scandal. [brain freeze - cannot remember what the equivalent is called - has to do with selling bad loans] They share the same “principle”. Travis McGee is right; it’s gangster government. “
I sent Travis’s piece to dozens of people. Great piece of writing.
Is your full name Mr. Tzimisce Doomandgloom? ;-)
How do you expect to live up to Ben Franklin's reply to the question put to him following the first Constitutional Convention if you have already given up? Go read Travis McGee's essay Gangster Government, and Sakharov's Immunity and get inspired.
Thanks for the link; horribly true and that was just February.
And: “Pimpin' ain't easy”.
Thanks. Saved it as well and it’s a great piece.
Can you say conflict of interest?
Mortgage backed securities and\or Collateralized Debt Obligations.
Sadly, the fact is that the sheeple just won’t care, because the Mainstream Media will refuse to tell them.
Sure there is. When we decide to take these bastards to the streets with tar, feathers and rope!
THAT'S WHEN IT WILL END
Expose the evil bastards through and through!
Pushing a million hits too. Wow! You go man!
Thanks. I was trying to think of sub-prime derivatives when I had the brain freeze. Your post caused it to thaw. ;-)
I guess the only thing derivatives have in common with "bundling" of political donations is that they both are pooled "money" so transactions could feasibly be hidden in either one.
Dr. Jedidiah Morse* describes just such a time in our own history in the following excerpt from an Election Sermon delivered in Charlestown, April 25, 1799, from the Bible text, If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3).
Our dangers are of two kinds, those which affect our religion, and those which affect our government. They are, however, so closely allied that they cannot, with propriety, be separated. The foundations which support the interests of Christianity, are also necessary to support a free and equal government like our own. In all those countries where there is little or no religion, or a very gross and corrupt one, as in Mahometan and Pagan countries, there you will find, with scarcely a single exception, arbitrary and tyrannical governments, gross ignorance and wickedness, and deplorable wretchedness among the people.
To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoy.
In proportion as the genuine effects of Christianity are diminished in any nation, either through unbelief, or the corruption of its doctrines, or the neglect of its institutions; in the same proportion will the people of that nation recede from the blessings of genuine freedom, and approximate the miseries of complete despotism. I hold this to be a truth confirmed by experience. If so, it follows, that all efforts made to destroy the foundations of our holy religion, ultimately tend to the subversion also of our political freedom and happiness. Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all the blessings which flow from them, must fall with them..

“If you got a Swiss Bank Account, You didn build that! Somewon ELSE stole that scratch forya!”
These thieves ALL BELONG IN FEDERAL PRISON FOR LIFE!
I agree one hundred percent.
The traitor is Obama and his administration.
That’s what we’re encouraged to think. The corruption involves both parties in nearly equal measure. The elites in both parties both use government to take from America.
