From The Market Ticker
Imagine a world in which a man who is repeatedly investigated for a string of serious crimes, but never prosecuted, has his slate wiped clean every time the cops fail to make a case. No more Lifetime channel specials where the murderer is unveiled after police stumble upon past intrigues in some old file – “Hey, chief, didja know this guy had two wives die falling down the stairs?” No more burglary sprees cracked when some sharp cop sees the same name pop up in one too many witness statements. This is a different world, one far friendlier to lawbreakers, where even the suspicion of wrongdoing gets wiped from the record.
That, it now appears, is exactly how the Securities and Exchange Commission has been treating the Wall Street criminals who cratered the global economy a few years back.
Matt goes on to detail actual cases – including Lehman and Madoff – where allegations were made, investigated and then the records intentionally destroyed in apparent contravention of the law.
Our government wants us to “invest”? To believe in the markets? To believe that there’s a cop, and that when someone does a bad thing they will be punished? When, as alleged….
In at least one case, according to Flynn, investigators at the SEC found their desire to investigate an influential bank thwarted by senior officials in the enforcement division – whose director turned around and accepted a lucrative job from the very same bank they had been prevented from investigating.
Really? You want me to invest eh? To trust the “system”, the “government” and “the rules.”
Our government would like me to make efforts to earn money, upon which they will then levy taxes? To pay for Leviathan, when it appears to be now beyond dispute that not only will the people on the other side of these transactions intentionally steal from me, but the government will hold the gun they stick me up with!
This is some sort of bad joke, right?
No: This is the bankrupt and criminal States of America, where we can’t even get ONE State Attorney General to bring a perjury charge when there are 100,000 examples of people being ejected from their homes predicated on those perjured documents!
Go back to my Ticker from the other day and add the following demand: EVERY ONE OF THESE SNAKES LOSES THEIR JOB AND DOES 20 HARD IN A FEDERAL POUND-HIM-IN-THE-ASS PENITENTIARY, EVERY ONE OF THE CROOKS ON WALL STREET IS INVESTIGATED FOR THEIR ACTS LEADING TO THE MORTGAGE BLOW-UP IN A FULLY-TRANSPARENT FASHION AND, WHERE APPROPRIATE PREDICATED ON THAT PUBLIC INVESTIGATION AND PROCESS, INDICTED, PROSECUTED, AND IF CONVICTED IMPRISONED RIGHT ALONGSIDE THOSE SEC JOKERS.
Until then Mr. President, Mr. Speaker of the House, Mr. Minority and Majority leaders and Ms. Pelosi, when it comes to me deploying my capital to create jobs and start businesses?
Go to Hell.
