Ha! Holder Says He's Pissed: Who Dares Question USAG Flawless Record?

Um... me - that's who. I'm calling your "pissed", "nonsense" and "could - would" remarks to NPR's Michel Martin, complete and udder bull chit! Ya should have let sleepin dogs lie, there, former United States Attorney General Eric Holder. No one really cares about a story titled "Eric Holder: No Apologies for Return to Big Law".

As expected, you did what we all knew would be done - it was your time to get paid.

You could have ended the "I'm proud to be a big law guy" declare, with that sole premise, of your not apologizing for your returning to big law. Though, arguably, your entire tenure as United States Attorney General, with your buddy Lanny Breuer as head of the Criminal Division, resulted in near zero prosecutions of top Wall Street fraudsters. Basically (and this seems to bother everyone who once could compel press conferences, many) nobody really cares where you went, or what you want, any more.

Just sayin...... yer 15 minutes - plus - was up.

We all do appreciate your works on stopping the prosecution of Senator Stevens; but your consummate failures to free Governor Siegelman is infuriating and appalling.

Your dropping of the Black Panther prosecution, holding the line that water boarding is torture, and your stance on DOMA is also commendable. Too bad you didn't do more, along those lines.

HOWEVER - when it comes to proper prosecution of Wall Street - your administration - has an untenable "could - would" position.

I'm pissed, and as you soon may learn, the hard way, (and if you are thinking ill - "gotcha" - I'm talking through legal channels) either your policy of plausible deniability, as in the Fast & Furious debacle, or your inherit of bad apples buried deep within, or chickens in the ranks - and/or worse (given one of your former's was granted a $50 million NO BID Deferred Prosecution Agreement - fostering motivations of possible millions, giving others reasons to look the other way).... resulted in many "prosecutorial gaps" looming large, during your tenure.

You are being given one chance - less than 2 weeks time - to admit you made a mistake. So that you may do the right thing and redact your "This is one that pisses me off" remark. For, whether your defense is that you were in the dark, or not, your tenure against Wall Street is marred - greatly.

Do the right thing and admit you made a mistake (not just one, more than a few) and we can all get along.

If not - we'll go to civil war - in our courts of law; and your administration failures will become bad faith posturings, instead of oversights/ mistakes.

For the rest, we are addressing the recent National Law Journal article Eric Holder: No Apologies for Return to Big Law where Michel Martin, of National Public Radio, is quoted as posing to former USAG Eric Holder, the following question:

about the criticism he has gotten for not indicting Wall Street executives for the role they played in the economic crisis that began nearly a decade ago

To which, former USAG Eric Holder defended his record on Wall Street, as flawless - stating:

“This is one that pisses me off,” Holder said. “It’s nonsense.” Holder said his office and that of the U.S. attorney in New York were willing to bring criminal cases against banks if the evidence had met the standard of proof needed.

“The reality is that if those cases could have been brought, they would have, Holder said, stating that instead, the department sought and won “record-breaking civil settlements” that helped those who were harmed by the meltdown.


And, if you have read any of my rants on our eToys public company being destroyed - intentionally - by Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital, then you are already aware that Eric Holder's administration did make some slip ups.

Fact of the matter is, Marc Dreier, Tom Petters, Allen Stanford, Kay Bee, eToys, Okun 1031 and dozens of other national fraud schemes are all - believe it or not - part of an overall racketeering enterprise.

We have continuous crimes and cover ups, extraordinary, transpiring during Eric Holder's tenure; and now during Loretta Lynch's.

Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital executives, along with their law firms, are continuously, to this very day, doing premeditated Obstruction of Justice, Intimidation of Victim/Witnesses, Mail/Wire Frauds, Racketeering, Scheme to Fix Fees, Feeding Ponzi Schemes, Destroying Evidences, Bankruptcy Fraud, Securities Fraud, Corruption and so much more.

All because the last 20 years of USAG's, simply refuse to investigate, much less prosecute, Romney or Goldman Sachs.

Just a few weeks ago, I swore testimony to Assisted United States Attorney's, about homicides resulting.

Basically, they said not possible (like I can forge death certificates) - and told me to jump through more hoops.

FFFFF--------------- THEN.

I'm done doing lap dances, begging for some public servant to do their frigging job.

It's not that Eric Holder's staff didn't have the brains, brawn, or experience in the complicated (yet very simple) matters of Wall Street frauds and laws; because Eric Holder, himself, was a federal prosecutor, who even worked the Public Integrity Section and was also a D.C. Judge.

The issue remains, as Bernie Sanders points out so well - there's one set of laws we all must abide by;

The Oligarch'aire class continues to remain - above the law.

Enough is Enough, already, Senator Sanders is spot on and Eric Holder has made a real errant statement that must be redacted.

Or I'm going to make him eat his words.

Just sayin.......

I'm the one who has the right, unequivocally, to be pissed - at USAG Eric Holder's - claims to have a flawless record.

Detectives are taught to never believe in coincidences

Empirically, the laws of probability and outcome do not bode well for the arguments of coincidence.

This duel demise of key persons is alarming

Lawyer for Congress Offers Sell Out of Constituency to Goldman Sachs

This is absolutely one of the biggest set of brass chutzpahs this corruption fighting combatant has ever seen. Jeff Kurzon is an attorney at law who is running for Congress, in New York; and he did a snark offer to Goldman Sachs CEO/ Blankfein, to sell Jeff's soul/ sellout of constinuency....for a discounted price ..of $200,000.00

I want to come back as Marilyn and have Jeff's babies.

This ranks right up there with Richard Pryors "Brewsters Millions" wanting to buy your vote.

Basically, Jeff is taking a swipe at hidden transcripts.

No mere snips could do the piece proper justice, so...having Jeff's permission....here's a goody.

APRIL 7, 2016
Dear Chairman Blankfein,


Chairman Lloyd Blankfein

Goldman, Sachs & Co.

200 West Street

New York, NY

Dear Chairman Blankfein,

My name is Jeff Kurzon and I am a second-time candidate to be a member of Congress to represent the people of New York. I am running on a platform to get money out of Congress. We all know what a joke that is. Corporations and banks have always controlled Congress through lobbyist contributions, more recently through political action committees (PACs) and now because of Citizen's United, corporations such as Goldman can spend unlimited amounts of money on elections. All you need is a crafty lawyer to help you buy as much influence as you need in Washington. Goldman comes out looking like a “good corporate citizen” electing its pawns and more profitable than ever.

The purpose of my letter though is to offer my services as speaker to you and your employees, or to put it another way, sell my soul to Goldman Sachs and you. Why shouldn’t I jump on this gravy train of lucrative speaking fees — all I have to do in return is sell out my constituency who will never be the wiser in order to protect the rigged system from which you will amass an even more wonderful fortune. So what if the middle class is decimated by the giant squid pro quo [sic!] relationship where you pay me to espouse my, ahem, wisdom, and I maintain that status quo fiscal policies that benefit you and hurts them.

In my desire to wield power and enrich myself and my friends financially, I am willing to offer you a one hour speech for $225,000, less a 10% discount because I am not yet elected. So for less than $200,000, you can have my divine wit and my eloquent prose. Imagine genetically modified rose petals with dollar bill signs dancing on holy water. You will get a bought future-politician who, once elected, will be sure never to vote in any way to harm Goldman's interest.

The $200,000 is an investment for your employees, creditors and shareholders. Essentially, it is a small investment to save you millions later. You of course can spend freely like this because of the "business judgment rule," which basically says you can do seemingly foolish things like bribe future leaders with funds that should otherwise go to shareholders under the guise of your best judgment. I have only one small request: I’d prefer to address only the highest level of bank employees and of course we should keep the transcript of my “speech” secret.

I look forward to scheduling a date to address your most honorable and worthy financial institution.



p.s. Nice work on getting the bailout. I am glad that AIG did not fail so that you and everyone at the bank could continue to enjoy your large bonuses. Let the New York City suckers who do not understand risky banking be damned.

Bythe way....Mr. Kurzon campaign is intentionally restricted to only $5000 ..as Jeff is a staunch activist for ending Citizens United and getting money out of politics.

Bernie may have just found a new USAG.

Just sayin....



NY Post: Goldman Sachs gets punched in the crotch

Lost in the clutter, banter and poor decorum of yesterday, is the New York Post article about a quiet Lord (I mean Lloyd) Blanfein seeking relief from "Goldman Sachs punch in the crotch", where journo Kevin Dugan notes that Sachs suchs in a loss of profit down to $1.14 Billion for the 1st quarter, from $2.84 Billion.

Let's all have a pity party of $uchs

As for moi, I"m still out to get Goldman $achs indicted.

just sayin.......


SethAbramson: As Sanders Supporter I'm Embarrassed

Seth Abramson said, on Twitter ( @SethAbramson ) that, as a supporter of Bernie Sanders, the Proff Seth says he's embarrassed that Bernie Sanders only won 50 out of 62 counties, in New York; cause he expected more of Bernie.

So did I

.....dark day turned pure Bernin Blue

To Seth I say ....Thank You
And to Hill.

..l.. You an Bill


[font size=6 color=navy] UPDATE - Counties Do COUNT -someMore[/font]

Thanks to Patriot's comment - below - we were linked to a great thread of hope, and this image


It gets in my craw, how dedicated a progressive I am, to have to endure the babbling, oppressive, bantering Bullchit of those who would dare question my loyalties, because I won't allow them to bully me into accepting a coronation.

Such is how England has a Queen, who's not actually English

Hillary is a millionaire, 100 times over - and Bernie has been at politics longer, having much less.

Bernie gets 25% of the Republican vote, and turned Vermont into fair cost and bliss

The Hill gets a foundation, private jets and private servers.

In our eToys public company defraud by Bain & Sachs - Hillary would suck in prosecuting.

But Bernie's new USAG would jump at the chance.


So, you oppressive's who dare to call the rest of us not progressive

Suck on this map and the facts that glare at you - BLACK & WHITE - while hundreds of thousands of votes were blocked.

Enjoy your neo days

Hat Tip to Patriot and the other thread titled "Things are Not as Bad"

By the way. Abramson was being........

Resistence isnt futile

Believing moi will vote for oligarch dolt

Now that's what is futile
