Blagojevich And Economic Mutiny

Blagojevich's courtroom drawing during
his public execution in the media 2008-present
"You just can't walk into your sentencing and say you've been railroaded. Forget about it. That time's over.  You darn well better walk in with a heavy heart, saying you made mistakes and that you accept the decision of a jury of your peers."


-former Chicago city clerk Jim Laski, who was sentenced to two years in prison for corruption in 2006, talking about how any show of defiance from Rod Blagojevich could mean the tyrannic forces in control of the judicial system will assure a vengeful, lengthy prison sentence 


Three years ago this Saturday this blog was born in reaction to one of the most absurd injustices ever in the history of American government.  A sitting governor of the sovereign state of Illinois was arrested at his home at six in the morning in his underwear for allegedly trying to sell a Senate seat for over $1 million and a job for his wife.  The day before, then-governor Rod Blagojevich had been at the Republic Window and Door Company, where employees had locked themselves inside the building.  Bank of America had cut their line of credit, forcing the company to lay off a bunch of workers without severance or vacation pay that had been promised.  Rod Blagojevich stood in front of the building in a black leather jacket and turtleneck sweater and pledged that since Bank of America received billions in federal bailout money and cut the Illinois' company line of credit, the state of Illinois would suspend all business with the Bank of America.  The next morning, Blagojevich was arrested and subsequently crucified in the press.  Blagojevich became a political "Attila the Hun," and other career politicians removed a sitting governor elected by the people while trampling all over the Constitution of the United States and the State of Illinois.





In the chaotic days after the fall of the market in 2008, authorities controlling the collapse and forcing the bailout bill down the throats of Americans were also wary about any political "cowboys" in their midst.  Failure to follow the scripted story line would mean certain disaster for an economy already on a precarious footing.  Invoking the 10th Amendment or standing up for the people during that massive economic injustice could have spelled quick doom for the shell-shocked banks who were desperately trying to convince the people how much they need the banks to save them from "catastrophe."  


"If the machine of government is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law."
   
-Henry David Thoreau
            
So Much For The Powerful "Winning" Side
    
In December Bank of America stock was $15.00/share.  The bank never lost "business" with the State of Illinois as the order to termninate sat on state treasurer and Obama basketball buddy Alexi Giannoulias' desk un-enacted.  Three years later, millions of people have been thrown out of their homes fraudulently by the large banks; Bank of America leading the unjust way.  They packaged their mortgages into derivatives and traded them with other banks.  When the market crashed and it was time to foreclose, Bank of America, like all the other large banks were unable to prove ownership of the loan.  
        
"It was the banks who were ultimately bailed out by taxpayers while individual investors and homeowners were left on their own. And whether those institutions believe they are too big to fail, they certainly have demonstrated that they believe they're too big to care about the impact of their actions."
       
-  Masasachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, 12-2-11 
                                
Today Bank of America is worth a little over $5.00/share.  The "too-big-to-fail" banks have tried to gather together all the sycophantic Attorneys General of the states in the hope they would be granted immunity.  This almost worked.  That was up until last week.  Last week Massachusetts filed suit against the large banks.

BreakingRod Blagojevich sentenced to 14 years in prison beneath the deck of a sinking economic ship

Acoording to the Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's sneaky recording devices, Blagojevich allegedly tried to sell the hallowed Senate seat of Barack Obama for federal rerserve debt notes. 

And what has happened to the integrity of the Senate since 2008?  It has been superceded by a "Super" Congress that operates in complete secrey like a Soviet-style Politburo.  In 2011, this group is frantically trying to make everyone a target that stands up to their tyrannical, unjustified economic terror.  Therfore the media's idiotic argument about "violated integrity" is delusion and dangerous.  Blagojevich's crime was economic mutiny and nothing else.
