Assange Or Corzine? Priorities are a bitch.

Guest Post: Assange Or Corzine?

Assange Or Corzine?
Priorities are a bitch.
The United States won’t prosecute Corzine for raiding segregated customer accounts, but will happily convene a Grand Jury in preparation for prosecuting Julian Assange forexposing the truth about war crimes.
From the New York Times:
A criminal investigation into the collapse of the brokerage firm MF Global and the disappearance of about $1 billion in customer money is now heading into its final stage without charges expected against any top executives. After 10 months of stitching together evidence on the firm’s demise, criminal investigators are concluding that chaos and porous risk controls at the firm, rather than fraud, allowed the money to disappear, according to people involved in the case.
But nobody knows how much dirt Corzine has on other Wall Street crooks. Not only may Corzine get away with corzining MF Global’s clients’ funds, he may well end up with a whole raft of seed money to play with from those former colleagues and associates who might prefer he remain silent regarding other indiscretions he may be aware of.
But the issue at hand is the sense that we have entered a phase of exponential criminality and corruption. A slavering crook like Corzine who stole $200 million of clients’ funds can walk free. Meanwhile, a man who exposed evidence of serious war crimes is for that act so keenly wanted by US authorities that Britain has threatened to throw hundreds of years of diplomatic protocol and treaties into the trash and raid the embassy of another sovereign state to deliver him to a power that seems intent not only to criminalise him, but perhaps even to summarily execute him. The Obama administration, of course, has made a habit of summary extrajudicial executions of those that it suspects of terrorism, and the detention and prosecution of whistleblowers. And the ooze of large-scale financial corruption, rate-rigging, theft and fraud goes on unpunished.

  1. I think it's about time that we stopped pretending to be surprised when the people who control us, or rule us, or govern us, seem not to care even the tiniest bit that they are obviously acting in their own selfish, shortsighted, interests, rather than for the greater good.

    Let's face it, "they" - and we all know who "they" are - don't care that we can see exactly what they're up to.

    They don't care that their behaviour is as criminal as it gets, they don't care how obvious it is to everyone that from the very top of the rotten pyramid has come the explicit notion that "they" are untouchable, above the law, above justice, above God almighty for that matter.

    And do you want to know why this is the case (although I am sure you know this already)?

    It is simply because the pure and noble "average" human beings on this planet are just too "nice", too "obedient" and too "honourable" (maybe just a little too "frightened" as well), to put aside their differences - you know the differences I'm talking about; the ones we have been made to imagine are real by the criminals themselves - and stand together in open rebellion.

    If you don't like the view from your window, either close your curtains or start remodelling the landscape, it's up to you.

    In the article above it was ruled that because Police can track your cell phone then its legal. Thats like saying because your investment broker can steal your funds then thats legal too!

  3. Have you heard of the recent detainment of Brandon J Raub? He is military veteran who was taken away in cuffs by the FBI and Chesterfiald VA police and placed in a mental institution because of his facebook posts against the government. He was not read his rights, and hasn't been charged but is being held against his will. There is an interview with his mom on this link, the 3rd or 4th post down. http://intellectualodditiesnetwork.com/showthread.php?tid=12327
