A last-ditch effort by federal and state law enforcement authorities to hold Wall Street accountable for nearly bringing down the U.S. economy

But they let traitors to the United States Constitution stay in office?

What the hell is this world coming too?

I highly doubt anyone is going to do anything about it....and given enough time, they will break it all down, then come in and say....Here you go, we can save you, just agree to these few things.....and then that will be the end of our freedom.

I just hope it all blows up in their faces and they get taken down with the rest of us.

While watching, allow you eyes to sweep over your body. Those flames coming from your shoes, pants, shirt, chair (and fiddle) are not an illusion.

This is simply more proof that the American system of governance does not work and never has. Too big to fail only means that this system must be omitted in some cases in order to keep the system from destroying itself. The machine our ancestors invented and we continue to modify is self destructive, it does not work as advertised.

This is what happens when lobbyists and "think tanks" actually write legislation, which they are now doing to "help" Senators and Congresspersons too busy raising money (supplied by corporations and those lobbyists) for their next election to write legislation and only rubber stamp them. This is what happens when the appointed Regulators who are supposed to keep the bankers and wall street money people in line and legal were taken from those same industries and are hardly strict with their Ol' Buddies. This is what happens when the Supreme Court allowed corporations to give unlimited dollars to election groups and circumvent the Public, so foolish potential voters, of which there are far too many, can be easily manipulated by mudslinging commercials that tell untruths and take words out of context to warp their meaning. This is what happens when our government has become corrupt. It is no longer government Of the People, By the People, and For the People. It is now Of the People, By the Corrupt, and For the Corrupt, the Elite Wealthy, and Corporations, all of whom have manipulated our Laws to make whatever they want Legal or Illegal. Illegal wiretaps and search and seizures are now legal. Being detained indefinitely without a chance to see a lawyer, legal. Being named a terrorist for reasons they don't have to give, legal. Not going to prison for bankrupting our nation and making our debt too large to pay off, legal. Working tax breaks and loopholes to avoid paying taxes, legal. Our Government is No Longer Our Government. It is Their way of governing Us. US AND THEM. No longer Americans for America, supporting each other to reach our dreams of at least middle class.

What happens when the courts no longer give the people justice...

To many people are homeless and jobless now because of the actions of these major banks.

They manipulated the entire process, from start (origination of loans) to the very end (illegal foreclosures)

At which point will the people have had enough.

Am I to believe that Obama brought about this investigation so that he could bring charges against himself?

One of history's biggest crimes and who pays for it but the victims. The victims paid during the crime and the victims pay after the crime. There is no justice in this system and what have the criminals to show for it? All nations are bankrupted, all the money they stole worthless. They stole and stole and what did it get them? There is no money left, it's all worthless now the population just doesn't know it yet, but they will. What kind of 'recession' lasts a freakin' decade anyway?

Social Security: Gone
Pensions: Gone
Retirement: Gone

There is nothing left. The system has proven itself flawed and incapable of governance.

I'm with you bro. I can sense the frustration within your post. It really puts us people in an impossible position, because we can't get away with crimes like this and if we were to get caught, we couldnt afford to lawyer up like these corrupt bastards. Everyday people don't want a bail out, they just don't want these criminals to keep getting bailed out every which way. This is just yet another unspeakable crime against Americans. They want to arrest everyone but the actual criminals, which means the criminals are obviously running this scam.

They expect us to stand idly by, that's why crimes like these go unresolved. Its part of the psywar.

This is the product of capitalism...being able to buy your way out of punishment. If everyone were on an equal playing field with the means of production controlled by the workers, none of this would have happened. Executives would not exist.

I think capitalism/socialism/communism are all scams, not that those supporting it realize such. Capitalism was garbage from slavery to the concrete jungle and now banker fraud, capitalism was never anything other than a failed system to begin with. The same goes for communism which only ever ends up the same, power in the hands of a few. Socialism is just a hybrid of the two, none of these systems are worth the paper they are printed on. Anytime you give someone the power to rule over others tyranny is the result, sometimes it happens immediately, sometimes the subjugation takes a little time, but it always ends up the same... Tyranny.

Actually the elite families are cold and emotionless with their families also. Trained from birth that way.

I think most, if not all, of us were 'trained' since birth to be insensitive to the suffering of others. It's simply part of 'the system.' You cannot help others without hurting yourself, the system begs you not to help others, it begs you to hoard in a bid to protect your own survival. Need proof? It's in this thread.

For a change, paid shills agree on this subject?
No denying!
Very, very strange indeed!
Are they paid now to agree on certain subjects?

If they/them will not jail the bankers and wall street execs then at least they should have their cash and property assets sodomized for their crimes against americans. Those millions should be spent on americans who could not pay their bills and had to file for bankruptsy and foreclosure because of the bad financial actions of execs that cost americans loss of income. Or let the americans do what they wish to these scum corporate slime. Lots of americans go to jail because they cannoit pay bills and they end up bunking up with Bubba in the pen. I bet Bubba would like to bunk up with a soft, supple 1%er lol.

It would be very hard to put those bankers in jail for any extended amount of time. They have a massive amount of control and influence over the means of production. They are, in a sense, the super capitalist class because they own the means of placing value on capital and currency. Even those who have direct ownership over the means of production have to answer to the bankers. They are able to control the political class because they have the power to cut off funds and prevent any politician from gaining capital in order to fund their own agenda. To take down the bankers would be to also take down the capitalist system; which is not going to happen without some serious resistance from the political, capitalist and banker classes.

Well that's true to an extent I also feel that throwing the top bankers in jail would lower credibility in the banking industry. Really they have no credibility, but the majority of the public doesn't know this and throwing those bankers in jail or something similar would only allow the masses to realize what they've been funding. There's a good chance that a panic would ensue, the public, no longer trusting the banking industry, pull their money out and crash the already battered economy. So "too big to fail" reigns because the politicians would only destroy their own country by upholding its laws. Again, to me this proves the system to be self destructive for to actually uphold the system's laws would cause the system to be destroyed.

This goes much deeper....

This is from a thread I started last month... Why did Huffington fail to mention this report???


A new report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) finds that President Barack Obama’s and Attorney General Eric Holder’s failure to criminally charge any top Wall Street bankers is likely a result of cronyism inside the Department of Justice and political donations made to Obama’s campaign.

Despite Obama’s and Holder’s “heated rhetoric” against Wall Street (in 2009, Obama blamed the 2008 financial collapse on “reckless speculation of bankers” while Holder charged that “unscrupulous executives, Ponzi scheme operators and common criminals alike have targeted the pocketbooks and retirement accounts of middle class Americans”), they haven’t “filed a single criminal charge against any top executive of an elite financial institution,” GAI wrote in its report, exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller.



GAI argues that the Obama administration’s decision to not go after Big Finance is due to senior DOJ leadership — Holder, Associate Attorney General Tom Perrelli, Associate Attorney General Tony West, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, Deputy Attorney General James Cole and Deputy Associate Attorney General Karol Mason — who “all came to the DOJ from prestigious white-collar defense firms where they represented the very financial institutions the DOJ is supposed to investigate.”

The report details how Holder and Breuer both came to the DOJ from Covington & Burling, a “top-tier Washington law firm” with a client list that includes financial firms like Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, CitiBank, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, ING, Morgan Stanley, UBS and Wilmington Trust.

GAI said that President Obama’s decision to choose Holder, “a white-collar defense attorney from Covington,” as his attorney general, over a “more fiery prosecutor,” appears to have sent “a subtle signal to the financial community” that this administration isn’t going to actually do anything, despite the harsh words.


Compare and contrast Obama's failed admin with his two predecessors...


In the report, GAI details how the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations both actually took down financial criminals — unlike the Obama administration. Between 2002 and 2008, for instance, GAI points out how a Bush administration task force “obtained over 1,300 corporate fraud convictions, including those of over 130 corporate vice presidents and over 200 CEOs and corporate presidents.

“Clinton’s DOJ prosecuted over 1,800 S&L [savings and loans] executives, senior officials, and directors, and over 1,000 of them were sent to jail,” GAI adds.

But, despite having “promised more of the same,” especially in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the Obama administration’s DOJ has not brought criminal charges against a single major Wall Street executive.

The Bush and Clinton administrations’ track records on prosecuting white-collar crime, and the Obama administration’s failure to do so, Schweizer said, is “evidence that this has less to do with some sort of partisan or philosophical issue.”
