It looks like Ponzi scammer and former chairman of the NASDAQ, Bernie Madoff, will be allowed to enter into a plea deal with prosecutors. It is possible he may not see the inside of a prison cell, but more likely he will get a light sentence and be shipped off to one of those golf club “minimum security” facilities reserved for wealthy criminals.
|The Bernie Madoff corporate media circus sideshow is a way to deflect the anger of people who will suffer under the collapsing Ponzi scheme known as the global economy.|
“Prosecutors who have charged him with operating an alleged $50-billion Ponzi scheme notified a federal judge on Friday that Madoff had agreed to forgo a grand-jury hearing, a step that is typically a precursor to a plea agreement,” reports the BusinessMirror. “It’s not inconceivable that Bernie Madoff could avoid doing one day in jail,” said Brad Simon, a New York defense attorney.
Bernie Madoff should serve the remainder of his life in the sort of prison reserved for the rest of us. He should spend his remaining days on planet earth with bank robbers, stick-up men, con artists, and other sociopaths.
All of this is a media circus distraction. It’s a way to deflect the righteous anger of the vast majority of people who are about to suffer mightily under the collapsing Ponzi scheme known as the global economy.
After Bernie is packed off to prison — if he is packed off to prison — people need to call for the arrest and prosecution of the real economic criminals. It is about time the high muckamucks at Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Bear Stearns, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Wachovia, Fannie Mae, etc., be arrested, paraded around in orange jumpsuits and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Of course, before this rogue’s gallery faces arrest the Ponzi scheme dons should be apprehended — Hank Paulson, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke and their underlings and minions.
The Federal Reserve should be burned to the ground and salt poured over the ashes.
I may as well wish for a pony because this is not going to happen. Most people do not understand that the Federal Reserve is a private interest held by international offshore bankers. Most people do not remember the historical precedents of the S & L crisis or the dotcom meltdown. Most people do not understand that the government and your tax dollars are there to cover the losses inflicted on us by the bankers.
Most people are clueless when it comes to a very simple principle — the Federal Reserve manufactures money out of thin air and then loans it back to us with interest through crooked banks that are part of the Federal Reserve System. These criminal enterprises masquerading as banks include the Rothschild Bank of London, the Warburg Bank of Hamburg, the Rothschild Bank of Berlin, Lehman Brothers of New York, the Lazard Brothers of Paris, the Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York, the Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy, Goldman Sachs of New York, the Warburg Bank of Amsterdam, and Chase Manhattan Bank of New York.
[efoods]I am reminded of an old anarchist phrase — the cops are not here to protect us, they are here to protect the banks.
Americans follow every nuance of Chris Brown’s beating of his girlfriend, Rihanna, but when it comes to the money used every single day they are like late stage Alzheimer patients.
“Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders,” said Senator Barry Goldwater. “The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and… manipulates the credit of the united States.”
Of course, in a way, you can’t blame the American people for their ignorance. After all, the corporate media is owned by the international bankers and has been for some time. “These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government,” declared Teddy Roosevelt back in the day.
It’s not just the media, though. It’s education too. Back in 1953, Norman Dodd, chief investigator the Reece Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations, found that the bankers control education through the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Ford Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation, among others. Dodd and Reece discovered not only did these foundations take over education and push for social engineering and world government, they were instrumental in getting the U.S. involved in World War One.
It’s no mistake the history of the Federal Reserve is not taught in the schools. It’s no mistake most people don’t understand the dollar bills they use every day are nothing but instruments of debt.
It really is an irony that Andrew Jackson appears on the twenty dollar bill. Jackson called the bankers “a den of vipers” and promised to rout them out. “If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning,” he told a group of investment bankers trying to persuade him to renew their central bank charter in 1828.
Most Americans don’t know that. Most Americans don’t know Jackson is the only president in United States history to have paid off the national debt. It is a sick joke his face now appears on a piece of paper that represents debt.
Unfortunately, there will be no “revolution before morning” because the people are so easily distracted. Instead of going after the real criminals and shysters, the government and the corporate media give us the Bernie Madoff circus sideshow.
“Madoff’s scheme has a host of culpable look-alikes,” writes Bill Gross for Pimco. Gross believes the entire U.S. economy is structured like a Ponzi scheme and there are a lot of people to blame, not just the small fish Bernie.
Problem is, they won’t be dragged into court in orange jumpsuits any time soon.
