I found this story and beside the obvious accusations. I think it is no coinsidence that a year ago Pelosi said she was willing to take Obama down !! We all know what a lover he is and here we are. Dirty laundry and no soap to wash it?



Indications from the Beltway media world are that 60 Minutes is preparing to air a segment exploring legislative actions House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi oversaw that might have benefited her husband's stock investments


The story goes on to say,


According to multiple news reports, 60 Minutes reporter Steve Kroft sprang a number of questions on Pelosi at a recent press conference in Washington, D.C. about why legislation affecting credit-card swipe fees was not brought to the floor of the house for a vote late in 2008


Here is the fuse ,,


Earlier that year, Pelosi's husband, San Francisco businessman Paul Pelosi, purchased between $1 and $5 million in Visa stock. Visa, based in San Francisco, was undergoing a large IPO.


The story is available with the link below

She is a dizzy girl for sure and insider trading is not exempt from prosecution for insider trading. It's illegal, plain and simple.

Congress is not exempt. If they break the law and comeone can present the evidence then they can be prosecuted. However, there are a lot of strings that can be pulled if the person is powerful enough.

More news:

As many as a dozen members of Congress and their aides took part in insider trading based on foreknowledge of market moving information on Capitol Hill, disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff told CNBC in an interview.

We were getting ready to watch a DVD, and it just so happened that 60 Minutes was on.
I saw the interview.

Her eyes got big, she almost sputtered, but she said she did nothing wrong, basically he didn't know what he was talking about.
Then, after about of minute of this, she took another question.

In all fairness, she's wasn't the only politician involved.
Apparently, it is NOT illegal for members of Congress to use insider information they receive for financial gain.
I mean, WHAT


Citizens go to prison, and they get richer???????

The question on a lot of peoples mind is. When are they going to stop investigating this crooks and start arresting them. It is always the same oh we are going to spend tons of money investigating maybe someone will resign and then business as usual. We don't just want them to resign we want to see them in jail.

Just watched the segment.

Pretty disgusting that these cockroaches can get away with insider trading, which was the same thing that sent Martha Stewart behind bars.

And then, when a stock bill was made to put a stop to this, the hearing room was basically empty.

Here is the segment in case some have not seen it yet at the market ticker

Brian Baird, a former congressman, was trying to get something done about this for the past 12 years, including when he was a congressman.

H. R. 1184 Stock Act was put forth in March 17, 2011

H.R. 1148: Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act (GovTrack.us)


He has only had 6 co-signers and the congressional hearing was basically empty.

If no-one is benefiting by Insider Trading in the White house, then they should have no problem supporting this bill. Clearly, with only 6 co-signers, this is not the case.

But, when you go into politics with $100,000 to your name and come out a millionaire, your stealing from the tax payers, and also benefiting from your position, when everything you do should be for the American People and not to pad your wallet.


Another good link on the progression of this bill and the constant roadblocks it has encountered

The Stock Act should be pushed through by force, and the members of congress who have engaged in this garbage should be arrested, and their necks prepped for the gallows

I want to truely thank everyone for their opinions and contributions. This is a sick, twisted, law . Exempting members of Congress from insider trading. This law allows an avenue of corruption for 2 reasons in my opinion.
#1 It allows for corruption and extorsion on the part of dishonest politcians .
#2 It also is like a bait or temptation for the ones that are honest going into office i.e. The New Blood.. Thank you again..

She can't blink or close her eyes due to her numerous face lifts. She is looking as if she is eternally surprised.
