  • John Boehner, shouldn't he be EJECTED out of office also?

    SHAME ON THE OHIO VOTERS. You are allowing such men to violate our children's and your neighbor's future by voting such a man back into office.

  • "While was publicly trying to keep the economy from cratering, he was privately betting that it would, buying option funds that would go up in value if the market went down. He would make a variety of trades and profited at a time when most Americans were losing their shirts.

    Congressman Bachus declined to talk to us, so we went to his office and ran into his Press Secretary Tim Johnson.



    this should be the new slogan TO TAKE BACK AMERICA FOR ITS CITIZENSHIP.


  • Everything in the world wrong with that last statment.


  • "A senior employee at Microsoft MSFT -0.97% Corporation and an acquaintance face criminal and civil charges that they made nearly $400,000 in illicit profits by trading on confidential Microsoft information, including earnings announcements and strategic investment decisions. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Washington and the Securities and Exchange Commission unveiled criminal and civil enforcement actions against Brian D. Jorgenson, a senior portfolio manager at Microsoft, and his friend, Sean T. Stokke, alleging they sought to use their illicit profits to create their own hedge fund.

    According to the Commission, Jorgenson tipped off Stokke to several upcoming announcements, including Microsoft’s decision to invest $300 million in Barnes & Noble's NE -0.03% Nook e-reader business, as well as Microsoft’s quarterly earnings announcements in July 2013 and October 2013. Jorgenson was privy to this information as part of his job duties at Microsoft, which included the preparation of a written analysis predicting the market’s reaction in July 2013 to Microsoft’s announcement that earnings would fall below analyst consensus.

    After learning of the decision to invest in Barnes & Noble, Stokke allegedly bought $14,000 worth of Barnes & Noble call options. The options, which allow the holder to speculate on the short-term price action of a stock, skyrocketed in value after the announcement caused Barnes & Noble stock to post a nearly-52% increase. The pair netted nearly $185,000 in ill-gotten trading gains from the trade. Additionally, after learning Microsoft’s quarterly earnings ahead of the general public in July 2013 and October 2013, the pair made lucrative options trades that resulted in a total of more than $200,000 in trading profits. Interestingly, perhaps in an effort to throw regulators off the scent of the October 2013 trades, Stokke purchased call options on an exchange-traded fund in which Microsoft comprised a majority posit

  • You are an idiot....

    I just hope the SEC doesn't settle out of court and actually goes for the JUGULAR and seizes properties and goes through past dealing, life time barring as well all future salary proceeds to be garnished.

    An EXAMPLE should be made out of this entire BOD.

    We need a new SHERIFF IN THIS TOWN.

    18 poeople running a SCAM?

    by jforuus Apr 17, 2014 8:59 PM

    Congress is a I wouldn't extrapolate to this not being a SCAM.

    Corzine lost $1.6B
    Raj R of the Galleon group with insider network.

    It is all corrupt.

    Doi you know how much ACTUAL FRONT RUNNING GOES ON WITH CONGRESS AND THEIR LEAKS? It would amaze you.

    What is AMAZING is that the FBI doesn't arrest anyone and if they are worried about the US CITIZEN Rioting and burning down the WHITE HOUSE AND WALL ST. if they truth was EXPOSED, the FBI should quietly EXECUTE these members of CONGRESS that are undermining the US Citizenship and politcal system.

    You follow?

    It warrants ARRESTS, how many times has this happened?

    The guy puts out 260M shares plus for $0.17 while the shares are being traded for $0.60 at the time?

    Talk about RIGGING and STEALING?

    hahah!!! those guys are a paid program service.

    I hope someone visits you one day to verify if you are an idiot or leading investors their slaughter.

    Cancer for your children would be a great start if it is the latter.

  • Chapter 11 Bankruptcy:

    1. BOD gets paid
    2. Management gets paid
    3. Labor gets paid.

    Wow!! What a deal

    So this is how the rigging begins.

    Yes and none of this information is legal.

    If you believe that CItibank, JP MORGAN and Goldman Sachs along with the OVAL OFFICE have never made handshakes while Congress leaks infromation to their constituents!!! hahahhaha!!!

    How the Financial Terrorist System keeps rolling.

    Why hasn't the SEC arrested and imprisoned for more than 18 mos. (house arrest is not prison) such members of Congress? LONG LENGTHY PRISON TERMS WITH SEVERE FINES.

    Where is the FBI?

    When are new laws going to be enacted to stop this FLEECING for the US CITIZEN? Where are your House Reps. DELEGATES? Where is iintroduced? oh yeah....GROUND ZERO OF CORRUPTION, IN CONGRESS such legislature is introduced which will NEVER BE INTRODUCED UNTIL WE RID THESE CAREER CRIMINAL LIKE POLITICANS. The media SHOULD MOUNT A CAMPAIGN TO EXPOSE THE INADEQUACIES OF OUR GOVERNEMENT AND PARTICULARY THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE ENEMIES OF THE STATE AND ARE DESTROYING THE WAY OF LIFE OF THE MIDDLE CLASS DAILY. Laws should be repealed by Congress that allows their fellow corrupt Congress members to THRIVE and abuse the US CITIZEN.

    This naiton needs a PURGE from top to bottom when it comes to our political system.

    Grandparents need to start teaching their grandchildren the EVILS of these two politcal parties.

    This nation's citizenship should be DEMANDING JUSTICE at the voting poll and speaking freely who they voted for. Vote RIGGING is always in play with these criminals in Congress for all we know, nothing is past them. Our children are being molested every day.

    Please share such topics of conversation with others at the dinner table.

    Mr. President please nail this to the doors of Congress,DOJ, the SEC and your own Oval door.

  • Pseudo-Journalists at the SUN write this type of headlines,

    They are irresponsible and clearly an arm for financial terrorists as well?

    Please share such topics of conversation at the dinner table.

  • Capitalizing On Cannabis: An Interview With Sterling Scott, CEO Of GrowLife
    "Sep. 18, 2013 8:17 AM ET | About: PHOT
    This article is now exclusive for PRO subscribers.
    One of the "Fab Four" of the cannabis industry according to Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTCPK:HEMP), GrowLife (OTCQB:PHOT), which is based in California, stands out from the other three companies in many ways, including the fact that it's fully reporting to the SEC and is substantially smaller in terms of market cap. When I recently reviewed the space, sharing some information on 14 names with market caps in excess of $10mm with the goal of helping investors to understand better the risks and potential rewards, I created my own "Focus Four", but I didn't include GrowLife . I have heard from so many investors and potential investors who think that I perhaps should..."

    What does the rest of the article say. If you find something corrupt about a company and not expose illegal or and nefarious activity do you not expose and if you do not are you not legally responsible?

    Quesions the editors and bloggers of SEEKING CRAPPOLA should be held responsible for?

    This should be a new age for the SEC to CRUSH CRIMINALS who should be deemed FINANCIAL TERRORIST AND NOT JUST SCAM ARTISTS. In IRAN a hand would be cut off? Just saying, whose hand, their and their entire team? Their family members should be held responsible as well, they enjoy the shareholders wealth?

    18 months in jail is not enough, 15 years is a start.

  • at

    "The SEC's halt of Growlife's shares is the fifth halt of a stock related to the cannabis industry. The halt comes following FINRA's Marijuana Stock Scams warning."

    Band of CROOKS at the top?

    Sterling C. Scott Executive Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, Secretary
    Marco Hegyi President, Director
    John Genesi Chief Financial Officer
    Robert E. Hunt Executive Vice President, Director
    Anthony J. Ciabattoni Director
    Jeff Giarraputo Director
    Alan R. Hammer Director

    When is the SEC going arrest them or will they?

    There should be prison terms going out if this is a SCAM and this guy has been doing it for 30 years?

    Does he have kids and family, they know the truth.
