corpoRATe criminal on the lam as motorhead boardroom king pins commit another act of economic terrorism!
Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well Cricketeers, the corpoRATe crime wave continues unabated. Hell, even when the federal alphabet soup keystone kops (fbi, sec, etc.) in washingtOOn accidentally catch a corpoRATe criminal red handed. These idiots commit Stupidcide™ and the corpoRATe perps are allowed to flee the jurisdiction! This from reuters:
Stanford whereabouts unknown after charges: SEC
By Randall Mikkelsen Randall Mikkelsen – Wed Feb 18, 2009
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Federal regulators said on Wednesday they do not know the whereabouts of billionaire Texas banker Allen Stanford, charged with a “massive” $8 billion international financial fraud.
“We are unaware of his whereabouts,” Securities and Exchange Commission spokeswoman Kimberly Garber said from Texas.
Asked if Stanford may be outside the United States, she said: “Certainly that’s a possibility, but we don’t know.”
U.S. marshals assisting the SEC have been unable to serve Stanford with court orders freezing assets and appointing a receiver to run his Stanford Financial Group companies since a raid on his Houston headquarters Tuesday, Garber said.
Garber said she was unaware of any warrants for Stanford’s arrest and said the SEC was still hoping for his voluntary cooperation on the civil fraud charges.
SONOFABUSH! WTF?! Are they kidding? Let’s get this straight. They charged this thief, allen stanford “with a “massive” $8 billion international financial fraud” and didn’t bother to have him arrested? It fucking boggles the mind don’t it? The ethically challenged feckless appaRATchiks at the sec should all be charged with assisting in the flight of a fugitive from justice! Really, this is too stupid for any further words…
How about another act of domestic corpoRATe terrorism boys and girls? This from breakingviews.com
GM’s mother of all scare tactics
(breakingviews.com) — Why should U.S. taxpayers give General Motors another $16 billion in aid? After all, just two months ago the ailing carmaker claimed the first $13 billion would do the trick.
Because, as the company’s executives argue in the recovery plan they submitted to the Treasury on February 17, letting GM fail and file for bankruptcy protection would require a stonking $100 billion or more in financing, the vast majority provided by the U.S. government. That makes its latest appeal for help look like chicken feed.
It’s the latest twist in GM’s argument against entering Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, following on from last year’s claims it would upend the U.S. economy, eliminate more than three million jobs and imperil national security.
Chrysler has adopted a similar approach, asking for another $2 billion – it’s already got or been promised $7 billion – and claiming bankruptcy would cost up to $25 billion.
DAGNABIT! This latest corpoRATe terroristic threat should be answered by the immediate arrest of the motorhead corpoRATe criminals. These corpoRATe exec terrorist king pins should have all their PERSONAL ASSETS FROZEN as is befitting the enemies of the state they are. Said personal assets should be then made forfeit to them via federal RICO statute prosecutions. All monies gained under the RICO statutes should then be used to recapitalize the companies these corpoRATeer crooks have looted or used to pay for the chapter eleven costs. At the very least, the boardroom king pins should be charged with corpoRATe welfare fraud! We at ClapSotronics would find criminal prosecution of the corpoRATe welfare mother king pins a truly ClapSorific™ and just outcome, but we ain’t holding our breath…
The following is a public service announcement from ClapSotronics:
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary do (both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) , and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I are sick and tired of this endless corpoRATe crime wave and the failure of the federal keystone kops to bring the king pins to justice!
I believe in doing random acts of satire!
