Jon Corzine, a Goldman Sachs Con

Written by Erico Matias Tavares of Sinclair & Co.

"Exactly two years ago we decided to visit the Matisse exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Here’s what we wrote to other UK clients later that night:

“Tonight a friend and I decided to go see the Matisse exhibition during the late night session at the Met. We got there late and had to rush in to have enough time to enjoy some of the finest paintings ever produced by Mankind.
As we got closer to the end, I found myself standing next to someone I had never met, but whom nevertheless felt very familiar to me. Then it struck me who he was. I turned to my friend in disbelief. We both took a step back, looked again at the person, then at each other once more. It had to be him. We were standing next to Jon Corzine.
My heart immediately started racing. Suddenly all those repressed sentiments were turning loose, though I could still not entirely believe that the man who caused so much misery to thousands of people around the globe was standing right there. In the flesh. Carefree, enjoying the wonderful art around him guided by his headsets.
I started to think about what to do next. Should I make a huge scene? Or should I just forget about it, now that the administrators indicate that we will get most if not all of our money back? No. I just could not let it slide.
I decided to wait for him at the exit. My friend moved away, not entirely sure about what was about to happen. Then he got out, put down his headsets and looked out into where I was standing. This was my chance.
“Mr. Corzine?”, I calmly asked. “Yes!”, as he immediately reached out for my hand. I said, “I am a client of MF Global. How do you feel about that?”
His eyes turned down as he began muttering some pavlovian remarks. The few things he said that stuck were “I’m sorry”… “I’m being sued”… “there will be losses”… Then he said people are getting their money back. At that point I replied, “My money is in the UK, most of us got nothing back. Many people are struggling.” More remarks followed: “bad regulations in the UK”… “there will be losses”… “I’m being sued”…
That is all I had for him. Did not want to dignify him by displaying any emotions. The courts will not criminally judge him for what he did. But he knows that the anonymous person in the crowd will. Anytime, anywhere."

Obamacare, seriously...............

Why do Democrats want to exempt taxpayers who didn't enroll in Obamacare on a timely lawful basis, from paying penalties for not enrolling according to what the law dictated?

There isn't a shred of common sense with this bunch of theoretical idealists!

And they wonder why most Americans think the government is run by a bunch of fools.

It's obvious that former community organizers aren't worth shit at running any aspect of government!.

Blame the weather, blame the snow

It is so silly.  These corporate suits blaming the winter weather every year.  Blaming the snow for poor economic numbers is like blaming sunshine for global warming.

It will end when it ends.   Till then, the bullshit continues.

"We think that negative snowstorm effects could potentially subtract as much as half a percentage point from Q1 growth compared with a neutral baseline, although there is still plenty of time for activity to bounce back within the quarter. In light of our analysis, we reduced our Q1 GDP tracking estimate by two-tenths to +2.8%."

Rattlesnake Logic...........Too good not to share........

After the Boston bombing the news media spent days and weeks
trying to determine why these men did what they did. They
want to know what ...America did(!) to make these brothers so
angry with us. They want to know why these men were
not arrested before they did something so terrible. 


 The media is in a tizzy about this new era of
homegrown radicals and about why and how they can live among
us and still hate us.
 
A friend of mine from Texas explained it all to me: “Here
in west Texas, I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among
us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch.

I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I
have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the
driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I
encounter.

I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite
me and inject me with poison. I don’t stop to wonder
WHY a rattlesnake will bite me; I know it WILL bite me
because it's a rattlesnake and that's what
rattlesnakes do. I don’t try to reason with a
rattlesnake or have a "meaningful dialogue" with
it…I just kill it. I don’t try to get to know the
rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the
rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me. I just
kill them. I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find
out where the other snakes are, because (a) it won’t tell
me and (b) I already know they live on my place. So, I
just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.
I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the
rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake...I just
kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a
rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the
time. Also, I know for every rattlesnake I kill, two
more are lurking out there in the brush. In my
lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of
rattlesnakes.

Do I fear them? Not really. Do I
respect what they can do to me and my family?
Yes!! And because of that respect, I give them the
fair justice they deserve....I kill them...

As a country,  we should start giving more thought to the fact that these
jihadists' are telling the world their goal is to kill
Americans and destroy our way of life. They have just
posted two graphic videos on the internet showing them
beheading Americans. They are serious. They are
exactly like rattlesnakes. It is high time for us to
start acting accordingly!

I love this country.

 It's the damn government I'm afraid
of!

Look who's new in the White
House!

Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security

How can this  happen, and when will we wake
up? We are quiet while our Country is being drastically
changed!

Go to bed tonight...sleep  well!

Otherwise, pass it on get the word out!

If you vote liberal..............


As we get closer to the 2016 election, remember that we cannot trust Hillary Clinton to create jobs in America.
 
The last time she had a job to do, she outsourced it to Monica Lewinsky.

Your weekend analysis..............


Madness on display! 

Lower Brule Chaos.

Just another example of lack of sovereignty.   Another white guy telling Indians what to do.


LOWER BRULE -- A judge on Thursday ordered the Lower Brule Sioux tribal council must hold a council meeting in March.
 
The judge was finally able to issue his order just before 1 p.m. after four hours of the council members and attorneys attempting to find a resolution to their conflicts in discussions behind closed doors not open to the public. Without coming to an agreement, the council members, attorneys and judge met in the courtroom.  Judge B.J. Jones, of Fargo, N.D., presided over the hearing.

The Henry's remind me of Chip Wadena.............

GREAT FALLS — The former president of Stone Child College and her husband face trial next week on charges alleging they conspired to use federal money to overpay a construction company for work on the Rocky Boy's Reservation in exchange for kickbacks totaling more than $242,000.

Melody Henry and Frank Gregory Henry, who was the college's facilities department manager, each pleaded not guilty on Feb. 10 to conspiracy to embezzle federal funds, theft from an Indian tribal government receiving federal funds, accepting a bribe and theft from an Indian tribal organization.
U.S. District Judge Brian Morris scheduled their trial for Feb. 17 in Great Falls.

Prosecutors allege the Henrys conspired with Hunter Burns Construction, awarding about $530,000 in federal contracts in exchange for $242,000 in kickbacks between September 2010 and December 2012.

"Selfie" from the Community Organizer himself.......

Europe is on the verge of collapse; Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia are all geopolitcal hotspots and one false flag away from a hot war; central banks around the global are on the verge of a total loss of control and are now launching not just QE but also NIRP on a daily basis, pushing global stock markets to record bubble highs as the contraction in the global economy accelerates; and meanwhile in the White House...

Everyone knows the answer to this question.........

What do Brian Williams, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have in common?

2,000 Dead Last Week in Africa.......

You just don't hear about Christians getting killed by Muslims from the MSM.

Peace at any cost..........LOL

The Nobel peace prize-winning president has been busy today: not only did he petition Congress to declare war on the Islamic State, a non-country which technically doesn't exist, but now he plans to expands his "war powers" to any other place in the world.

Don't you just look forward to hearing his explanation for how his "promise" NOT to put boots on the ground jibes with today's request to deploy boots on the ground... somewhere... anywhere... against ISIS.  Tell me again, who's on first?

Truly Brian Williams-like!

Just the FACTS............

Submitted by Michael Gipp of The World Complec
How QE helped Main Street, Example 2: Maserati dealerships
I haven't written on this topic in a long time, but it is time once again to look at the magnificent benefits that have accrued to main street businesses as a result of bailing out bad bets of banks. Today I have selected another typical main street business--the car dealership. I have randomly selected the Maserati brand as the subject of today's investigation.
Annual sales of the Maserati brand (in number of cars sold) ranged from less than a thousand per year in 2002 to nearly 13,000 in 2014, thanks to the benevolent leadership of the Fed.
This is a chart that truly screams "Recovery!" In fact, it is quite clear that things are far better now than they have ever been before. If your life seems to be at odds with the obvious economic reality, you are clearly not working hard enough (or perhaps not at all).
All the propaganda to the effect that the goal of quantitative easing was to make the richer even richer still is thoroughly debunked. We can see that small, struggling family businesses like high-end diamond retailers and Maserati dealerships have indeed benefited from quantitative easing.

Saxby Chambliss, American Loser


Less than a month after leaving office, at least five former House members and one U.S. senator are already on the payroll at firms that make millions lobbying their congressional colleagues. The findings, provided to Vocativ by the Center for Responsive Politics, a government watchdog group, also show that a second senator who left office at the beginning of January, Alaska’s Mark Begich, took the extra step of starting his own public affairs consulting firm, which has already secured clients in health care and aviation.
 
If there was a walk of shame for so-called Congressional “representatives,” this list would serve as an excellent starting point. Their actions serve as definitive proof that the vast majority of politicians are only in it for money and power. They could care less about “public service” or being statesmen. If that was truly their calling in life, they wouldn’t immediately turn around and join lobbying firms the moment they leave office.
Yet all they do is cash in. That’s all they ever do.
The most amazing part about this article is that “by law, ex-House members are required to wait one year before they can officially lobby lawmakers on the Hill.” Naturally, professional liars and thieves won’t let something as pedestrian as ethics or rules get in the way. If there’s one thing politicians are good at, it’s finding loopholes.
From Vocativ:
It didn’t take long for these lawmakers to cash in on their careers as public servants.

While Washington’s contentious revolving door spins in perpetuum—allowing a stream of money, influence and access to flow seamlessly between the private and public sectors—the speed with which these public servants have offered themselves up to big business may raise a few eyebrows.
 
“It’s not like they were calling up their new employers on the morning of Jan. 5 and asking for a job,” says Russ Choma, a CRP spokesman. “It would seem very likely that as these lawmakers were still voting on bills and debating policies, they were simultaneously negotiating with lobbying firms whose clients may have a direct interest in these issues.”
 
By law, ex-House members are required to wait one year before they can officially lobby lawmakers on the Hill, while former senators must wait twice as long. Many, however, are able to work around those requirements at firms by signing on as consultants, counsel and strategic advisors, as a recent analysis by CRP and the Sunlight Foundation shows. That study’s conclusion: “The many loopholes limiting who can lobby whom in Washington and whether that lobbying must be disclosed to the public make a hunk of Swiss cheese look like the Berlin Wall.”
Here’s the graduating class of 2015. Congratulations guys, you finally made it!
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.)
Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.)
Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-Penn.)
Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah)
Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.)
Rep. Bill Owens (D-N.Y.)
Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK)
Four Democrats and three Republicans. Unsurprisingly, selling out is a bi-partisan affair.

Obama's JV TEAM in the Middle East........

...........seem to be able to handle gasoline and matches pretty well.

May God bless that Jordanian pilot.

Another honest CEO. There aren't many left.

"There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie. And it’s a lie that has consequences, because the great American dream is to have a good job, and in recent years, America has failed to deliver that dream more than it has at any time in recent memory. I hear all the time that “unemployment is greatly reduced, but the people aren’t feeling it.” When the media, talking heads, the White House and Wall Street start reporting the truth -- the percent of Americans in good jobs; jobs that are full time and real -- then we will quit wondering why Americans aren’t “feeling” something that doesn’t remotely reflect the reality in their lives. And we will also quit wondering what hollowed out the middle class." -  CEO of Gallup
