The Obama administration is willing to cut an infinity of deals for the Lords of Capital. Two Crimes Of The Century in a row have produced no serious criminal prosecutions of individuals. Attorney General Eric Holder gave out “so many immunities from prosecution he looked like Abraham Lincoln on Emancipation Day.”The federal government and the nation’s biggest banks have reached yet another settlement in the Crime Of The Century – or, one of those crimes that are supposed to come around only once a century but seem to pop up every year or so nowadays, as finance capitalism rushes towards its final collapse. The $8.5 billion deal is the second settlement in what was called the robo-signing scandal, in which banksters took possession of homes whose mortgages they could not prove they actually owned.

If ever there were a capital corporate crime, this was it – a mega-theft so monstrously destructive it merited French Revolution-style justice, with hundreds of one-way trips to the guillotine. Instead, what we got was presidential intervention, during Obama’s last State of the Union address, when he announced that there would be a settlement with the states to avoid state prosecutions of the banks. The robo-signing investigation would pass into the gentle hands of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, whom the bankers had no reason to fear, and the states would divide up $25 billion, much of which would never reach victimized homeowners.

This week’s second settlement of the same scandal is a bizarre derivative of the first deal. The banks had agreed to hire outside consultants to pour through their books to determine how many homes had been unlawfully seized, loan modifications wrongfully denied, and fees improperly charged. By late last year, the consultants were nowhere near finished, when federal regulators called off the exercise, calling it hopeless and too expensive. So, the feds did what the government always does with Wall Street criminals. They settled, this time for $8.5 billion – while consumer advocates say the actual damage to homeowners was many times that.

“The banks’ books are vast crime scenes.”

You don't want them to have birth control, or abortions, you hate the babies but pay for them to be in fostercare for life; what the eff do you want anyway?

Is the Solyndra "SolarGate" scandal the exception to the rule or is it just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to both the criminal and unconstitutional activites of members of the Obama administration. Their activities cannot be written off as "Crony Capitalism" when it appears on the surface to be more like an organized crime "Bust-Out" operation designed to defraud someone out of their money. In this case it is defrauding American taxpayers out of Billions and perhaps Trillions of dollars. I am very familar with "Bust-Out" operations because as a member of the New York State Police, I conducted a joint investigation of "Bust-Out" operations with the FBI and arrested several organized crime members who were involved in this kind of illegal activity.

As I am sure many of you may already know, Barack Obama's Department of Energy just gave ANOTHER $1 Billion of your taxpayer dollars to so-called "green energy companies" and $737 million of that money went to a company called "Solar Reserve" with very close ties to Nancy Pelosi's Brother-In-Law. What a surprise!

One of SolarReserve’s 'investment partners' is Pacific Corporate Group... PCG’s executive director is a fellow named Ron Pelosi, the brother of Nancy Pelosi’s husband. Suddenly, with this connnection now publically known, the deal makes a lot more sense than spending $737 million to create just forty-five jobs at a cost of over $16 million per job.

And where is the main street media on this subject? Where is the neverending nightly news coverage of such an obvious fraudelent deal? You guessed it. They are nowhere to be found. Why? Because the government-media complex is in bed with the Obama administration. They already know about the high level of corruption within the Obama administration and they also know that many of the administration's recent acts of corruption might also be Impeachable acts for the president and that is something they don't want to uncover.

The government-media complex knows that the smell of corruption goes all the way to the top... all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and that a full investigation could conceivably TOPPLE THE OBAMA REGIME. The Obama administration is getting away with all this because no one is standing up to Barack Obama, possibly because they don't want to be called "racists" for going after the first Black president.

The American people can make a difference. They always have when it counts. Americans must contact their members of congres and demand that these allegations of criminal acts and corruption be fully investigated. It would appear that a Chicago organizated criminal enterprise has usurped the White House and must be held to account. Congress must investigate these scandals... all the way to the top... all the way to the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, if appropriate.

A wartime cartoon in The New Yorker shows the docks of Murmansk covered with off-loaded containers and a Soviet official having trouble finding the word "spam" in the dictionary. Spam was one of the many food items sent to the former Soviet Union by the United States under the Lend-Lease Program first suggested by Winston Churchill, to which the United States contributed the major portion. The subject has been previously covered by such books as Hubert van Tuyll's Feeding the Bear (1989), but the present well-written text has the advantage of access to Russian sources, which were put to good use by Albert Weeks. The author makes a clear case that the program was a major factor in the survival of the Soviet Union and the victory over Nazism.""

Ok, let's go over the timeline again.

Russia had beaten back Germany to its border with Eastern Europe while at the same time the convoy system had not even yet been employed and there was only a token trickle of ships that eached Minsk.
Let's repeat that.
It was a foregone conclusion that Russia was going to defeat Germany at a time when the convoy system had not been employed and only a trickle of munitions and supplies reached Minsk.
Once again....
Russia had stopped the German advance and broken the back of the German army with virtually no assistance from the rest of the world, and by the time the convoy system was employed the German army was in full retreat and the front lines between Russia and Germany approximated the border of the Soviet Union with Eastern European countries.

A person can buy a gun and give it to someone else, or sell it to anyone. I heard there is a shortage of ammo, these nuts are hoarding, perhaps there should be limits on ammo purchases. i.e. Holmes was able to buy quite a bit online.
Ultimately, I hope they reissue the assault weapons bans and magazines to kill hundreds with one press of the trigger. No one needs that. Period. Get rid of them, ban the manufacture of them entirely. Make them illegal to possess.
It is illegal to own an automatic weapon. See you libtards don't even have a clue what you are talking about. Oh there is this thing called a comma in the. You do know what a comma is don't you?

It’s an educated guess that the independent auditors took so long sifting through the records because the banks’ books are vast crime scenes, covered in the life’s-blood of millions of consumers. Not the kind of treasure trove of criminal evidence that one should rush through, if one is seeking justice. However, what this administration seeks is not justice, but settlements that allow the banksters to pay a fine, stay out of jail, and get on with crime as usual.

Eric Holder is the Settler-in-Chief. That’s his job. Remember that other Crime Of The Century, the LIBOR interest rate-fixing scandal, the one that reached into every crease and crevice of the world economy. Attorney General Holder vowed to build criminal cases against the perpetrators, which included virtually the entire U.S. and European banking cartel. What he did was give out so many immunities from prosecution he looked like Abraham Lincoln on Emancipation Day. In this way, lots of evidence is gathered, but nobody goes to jail.

Eric Holder is actually the Get Out of Jail Attorney General. Not Get Out of Jail Free – the banks do have to pay a fine, which is called a settlement, and is viewed as a cost of doing business. And since the only business Wall Street knows how to do is crime, it’s back on the roller coaster for another screaming ride – until, finally, the whole contraption goes off the rails. How long? Not long.

They are out there speaking loud and clear.
However, there will always be certain segments in any society who prefer to be lazy at the expense of others - of all races.
If black republicans continue to grow in number and if they continue to emphasize the message that dignity and self-worth is far better than being dependent on democrats and taking their handouts for votes, there's hope more will come back home to the party who championed their civil rights.
President Obama carried the Roman Catholic Vote.
