A Tale of Two Governors

                 
"I never intended to break any rules.  There are people who handle the transfer of funds, and I’m not one of those.  I never intended to authorize anyone (to transfer client funds). If I did, it was a misunderstanding."

Corzine to MF Gobal customers: 
Calm down 


-John Corzine in front of the U.S. Agricultural Committee about the bankruptcy of MF Global and the vanishing of over a billion dollars of customer money   

“I never set out to break the law. I never set out to cross the lines. There is a line between routine politics, political horse-trading, campaign fund-raising, official acts and how you ask for political funds. It was always my intention in all the things I discussed back in 2008 to try to see if I could do those things on the right side of the line."

Rod Blagojevich in front of the Republic
Window and Door Company, December, 2008
-Rod Blagojevich, ex-Governor of Illinois at his sentencing hearing reacting to being convicted for using the Illinois Senate seat political horse-trading, trying to secure a deal for cash and a job for his wife; conspiracy to use the office of governor to get paid (psst, but really is was for ending business with Bank of America and being a populist danger to the entire financial system) 

Who do you believe?  The courts decided Wednesday that Blagojevich was guilty.  Illinois' governor received 14 years, without parole, and he didn't steal a dime. Corzine, New Jersey's ex-governor and an ex-Goldman Sachs executive, misappropriated over a billion dollars in customer funds and has not even been arrested by authorities.  In an economic world based on fraud and racketeering, it is less about the crime committed and more about what groups a person is connected. 

Jon Corzine is a real insider.  When the Obama Administration took office they touted Corzine as the brilliant economic mind from which they would seek advice.  The National Pulse could show examples of how much the Administration relied on Corzine's bbrilliance but it would take too long (to watch Vice President Joe Biden gush over Corzine see here or here).  Corzine is the ultimate insider who spent most of the 1990's with Goldman Sachs bankrupting countries and digging a gi-normous hole of debt for the United States.  Corzine attended the Bilderberg Group's 1999 meeting in Portugal.  He is a walking example of "too big to fail."

Blagojevich never had the economic connections like Corzine.  He went to law school and was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives in 1993.  Blagojevich never attended a Bilderberg meeting or was responsible for gazillions in profits artificially created with other economic terrorists with their money-printers and their armed enforcers.  He was a small-time politician hustler trying to get paid a little before the governorship was taken over by a more powerful gang.  It is a lesson in over-stepping bounds-  a gross violation of a set of unwritten rules that will incarcerate Blagojevich for over a decade.  No amount of public admiration or going on reality television could abridge the punishment due Blagojevich by the psychopathic banks.  He had to suffer so that the banks could continue to extort the world and intrioduce a cashless society.  Finally, the banks hope, a cashless society will be instituted and will lay bare the truth about what a fiat money system really is:  A caste system of limited opportunity and influence; a world in which freedom is a dream and true prosperity an apparition told as a folk tale.  

It comes down to shadowy rules about who can extort who for why and for what.  Obviously, Bank of America wanted to send a message loud and clear to other lawmakers with populist tendencies, "Do not f*** with us."

On the other hand, it is unlikely Corzine will be held to any account whether MF Global customers receive their money or not.  Unitl the economic system runs completely out of their control the gangster elite will be able to persecute the enemies while abetting their accomplices in theft. 

Extortion is easy-  a scene from The Sopranos where characters are talking about the reality TV show, Survivor, which offered $1million dollars to the winner if they ended up outlasting (or annoying) everybody on the island to "win" the contest:
