ALABAMA HERE I COME - On Wednesday, June 7, 11:30 a.m., Prof. Jacobson will be speaking for the Federalist Society of Montgomery, at The Capital City Club downtown Montgomery, open to the public, $20 at the door for non-students, $10 for students. Topic: "The Equal Protection Project: Challenging DEI Discrimination."
Don’t water board the wrong thief. His first name is “Jon”. Other than that, start pouring.
A great man, a financial wizard. What could go wrong? He is even now more qualified to be Secretary of the Treasury.
[…] #OCCUPY CORZINE. […]
A Facebook friend recently commented, “Might I suggest that if you seriously considered voting for Rick Perry that you please refrain from voting again ever? Your critical thinking is flawed.”
In that same vein, if you seriously considered making Jon Corzine Secretary of the Treasury, would you please refrain from holding public office again ever?
As they are digging around, hopefully in “relentless pursuit” of the missing $600,000.00 in investors’ funds at the severely over-leveraged MFGlobal firm, federal investigators might do well to “occupy” at least some of their time exploring the myriad of financial connections between the former New Jersey governor and the Obama Administration . . . as well as the web of financial connections between Jon Corzine and the Obama political campaign.
The media might want to give it a little more than their ho hum attitude too. Who knows, they might even unearth some clues regarding motivation! (In theory, at least, there is supposed to be some form of “line of demarcation” between the Administration and the campaign — somewhere. But not with this crew!)
Jon Corzine was, after all, a more than half million dollar bundler for Obama in 2008, after switching from being an avid financial Hillary supporter.
In fact, given her convenient position at State in the Obama Administration, one might even find some interesting dot-to-dot connections between Jon Corzine and her department, particularly since he left as the NJ governor.
Who knows? I say that because MFGlobal has been so exclusively focused on international investing.
As Julia A. Seymour astutely observed in her Media Research Center piece linked above, CNBC‘s Andrew Ross Sorkin is one of the only member of the mainstream media so far to have seriously gone after the MFGlobal story for what it is, having called it a “mini-Ponzi scheme” effort to “bet” on the bailout of the Euro.
That sure sounds to me like something that State would want to have had a good close handle on, no? I’d say this story deserves some real media scrutiny.
From her piece:
Once media outfits like Politico get over their breathless obsession for writing what must now be well over over 100 stories about hopelessly dated and ultimately unresolvable (he said/she said) allegations about Herman Cain, maybe they’ll get back to a few serious tried and true story lines . . . like, “follow the money!”
