DOES YOUR CONGRESSPERSON HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD?
Below are a list of your elected representatives (mostly federal, but I don't mind including state politicians either when they interact with the feds) who have or had criminal records on their Congressional rap sheet. Note the specific language: "Charged" means formal charges have / had been made, though the representative was not necessarily convicted. (I include charges only if said representative shows a pattern of behavior along those lines.) Convicted...well, you get the idea.
An asterisk at the end of a Congressfolk's record means that the charges came either before or after their terms...though often the "after" is the result of something(s) done while in the Capitol. Best of all, a name in boldface means that the representative is still a representative!
REP. MARIO BIAGGI (D-NY): In 1988 he was convicted of obstructing justice, tax evasion, conspiracy, extortion, and accepting bribes.
CORRINNE BROWN (D-FL): Failed to pay unemployment taxes to the state of Florida; sued by several airlines for unpaid bills and falsified travel reports; failed to report sale of her Tallahassee travel agency; improperly reported the sale of her Gainesville travel agency; sued by Whirlpool Corp. for unpaid bills; pursued by the IRS for $14,228 in unpaid taxes; investigations by the House Ethics Committee for possible acceptance of bribes; refused to file reports in the House about potential conflicts of interest while overseeing airlines she dealt with through her travel agencies; charged with money laundering.
REP. ALBERT BUSTAMANTE (D-TX): Convicted in 1993 of racketeering and accepting an illegal gratuity.
TONY COELHO (D-CA): Currently under investigation for fraud while serving as U.S. Commissioner General of Expo '98 in Lisbon, Portugal.* He was Al Gore's primary presidential campaign manager until he resigned citing health reasons.
William J. Jefferson he certainly isn't the only person committing crimes in Congress?
Do you know how many Cogressman have others front running on news ritually in the market? Staying under the radar because perhaps your superiors share trigger numbers to help them avoid detection?
You men are the only line between corruption violating the US Citizen.
Always remember your superiors are not always correct, if they were than many of you of other races would not be employed there currently. They didn't let persons of race or sexua oritentation in previously for so long and it was approved by the FBI top brass.
Question all, even your superiors; DO NOT BE GOOD SOLDIERS BE GREAT CITIZENS.
Speaking of molestation!! lol
look what happened here, MILLIONS exchanged hands yet the SEC couldn't find on #$%$ out all of the collusion between brokers,companies and other institutions.
The SEC needs to have their workforce X100, perhaps the US Citizen will get 10 just men out of that workforce increase?
I know..and Madoff son blew his own head off? lol
"Showing the flag Ever since Russian armed forces invaded and annexed the Ukrainian province of Crimea last month, the U.S. government has struggled to find an appropriate response. Trade sanctions and visa freezes on Russian government officials could punish Russia for what it's done in Crimea. But what could the U.S. do to deter further aggression?"
Sometimes you just have to go ALL IN, drop nukes on all of their 3rd degree satellite countries to start with? NUKE the #$%$ out of them, Congress has already destroyed so many of our futures and continues to arm the Wall St. Crooks with a sharp knife to gut our futures, while the media stands by idol instead of exposing the truth.
"File this story under the rubric: "Be careful what you wish for." When the U.S. guided missile destroyer USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) departed Norfolk Naval Base to take up station at the Spanish naval base in Rota two months ago, it set off alarm bells in Moscow"
The leadership of this nation is desperate....control is being lost, corrupt congress is being exposed.
Perhaps President B.O. is using tactics from the POS Clintonesque playbook of bomb a baby powder factor to avoid a second sex scandal to embarrass the oval office? They media was so helpful, the marriage of corruption.
When was the last time we had a decent White House Correspondent that reported back the truth to the US Citizen. Compromised.
When you see members of the media, "DANGER CLOSE" SHOULD be the alert that you hear ringing within, they are garbage and exposed as well.
If these POS actually increased the SEC workforce by X100 now that would send the US Citizen, Congress wants to clear their name as well?
That 1931 Huckleberry film with Rooney comes to mind...what will happen eventually is what the man says to the judge in the courtroom....the 35M may not say it who are unemployed but when that number turns to 70M? perhaps will come knocking on the door?
Remember they aren't looking for our best interest, Congress that is.
If they were such corruption wouldn't ooze from them.
Made me chuckle until realizing such wasn't the case...
"Shooter Kills Three at Two Different Jewish Facilities Near Kansas City"
Why do serial killers and mass murders always go after innocent people?
If we can read head lines, you don't think the members of Congress are trading news and events to their family members and others....via 2 or 3 degrees of separation? seriously?
"A family member was cleaning out the garage and came across a box that looked suspicious. Upon opening the box they found the infant inside," Capt. Michael Roberts of the Pleasant Grove Police Department told ABC News."
2nd highest in revenue but no net income?
How does that work?
Is the IRS too busy going after President B.O. critics rather than watching such books being written or cooked?
Charles Black is one guy to definetly not vote for, no Republcan or Democrat is a member to be voting for.
Their days should be numbered in our political system.
Please share such topics of covnersation with others ast the dinner table.
And than we have to pay $9 a gallon for Milk and $9 a gallon for gas?
These POS in our government than take 50% of any profits we make in the shorterm and share in 0% in loss and than give us a lousy $3500 in WASH money?
Seriously, this SCAM is KILLING US ALL for too long.
Many have died unable to answer back, time to answer back to start with at the voting booth by EJECTING all of these POS out office.
Please share such topics of conversations with others at the dinner table.
I just they all save one bullet in the chamber for themselves, after they realize how PIMCO has WRONGED THEM ALL. LOL
You are an idiot. they are partying on the roof tops after all those secret handshakes and monetery polices at he expense of the US CITIZENS best interest.
How much in fees they have collected.
Take PIMCO FEE MONGERS FOR example.
"EVIL WAYS" to begin all of your sessions with CONGRESS?
JEB Hensarling is the Republican chair of the House Financial Services Committee we want scalps and many of them from all of your lobbyist POS BUDDIES as well. Kick one guy in the sack as well for betryaing the US CITIZEN, tell him "take it like a man/woman!!"
The 35M unemployed will eventually will be meeting in their office when their number turn to 52M, 60M, 70M?
Every one time great institution believes their dynasty will move forward thru time regardless if they have become so corrupt as our US CONGRESS has, but that isn't the case.
The FBI should be either looking to sweep and bag such men or they will be considered an instituiton that has allowed corruption to flourish under their watch and those nice portraits of the heads of the FBI will be eventually be torn down by some 17yr to 22yr old with many zits on their faces while they relieve themselves in a circle on these portraits?
You can't keep destroying lives and think their will be no repurcussions?
They can censor the media which they own and are in control of directly or through 3 degrees of separation
(which the US CITIZEN WILL NOT ALLOW THEM/families TO HIDE BEHIND, either way; the US CITIZEN is exhausted and at whits end and having such conversations at the dinner table regardless.
if you see Carl Berg Jr. and Robert Kanode along with the GM board as well, they owe me much $$$$$. I would settle for a hanging like OLD DODGE CITY when corrupt men would swing on a rope around their neck with a message that read "THIS IS WHAT WE DO TO RUSTLERS AROUND THESE PARTS".
The 35M who are unemployed are ticking up and they will finally get tired of collecting pennies on the $$ and realize their life is slipping away and it has been bilked by others?
Mass riots are inevitable and hopefully they will be geared to the post neighborhoods of the political structure that has led us to this precipice? Hopefull the FBI will bring JUSTICE to the US CITIZEN before they rise to re-draw the political landscape by bringing all the corrupt members of Congress and oval handshakes that are clearly geared to betray the US CITIZEN vs. being illegal which the DOJ allows these groups to hide behind. THE HAMMER MUST CRUSH THE CORRUPT THAT BETRAY THEIR OFFICE.
For the record if you want to know the law to google it is called the "LAW OF CONVERGENCE AND DIVERGENCE", coldwintergas.
Don't be good soldiers, be GREAT CITIZENS.
Mr. President please nail this to the doors of congress, the SEC and perhaps it is time for you to start nailing this letter to the most corrupt Senators and Congress persons office itself? If the message isn't loud enough yet, eventually their halls will be litered with millions seeking justice?
History repeats itself, the FRENCH TIRED OF THEIR CORRUPT MONARCHS, so shall we?
A. Either you are a simpleton?
B. You think we are simpletons?
C. You just don't know better?
Truth is we have lost the power of the $$ thanks to the POS Corp-America, POS US CONGRESS, POS LOBBYISTS.
Gold is up, 4x. The USD will evetually come to equilibrium it is a LAW CALLED THE LAW OF EQUILIBRIUM AND BALANCED EQUATIONS. The math ONLY CAN LIE FOR SO LONG until you can't keep playing the MADOFF game.
Just start buying guns and ammo, put a list together who to bring to justice.
When the US FORCES fall into the hands of the new REGIME which will truly be in place for the US CITIZENS best interest. We will need to be ready to exact REVENGE upon the REST OF THE WORLD after we have held tribunals to bring our current and living politicans to JUSTICE for destroying our way of LIFE? Unfortunately you will have to more than crack eggs to make this new omelete and legacies will be stripped of wealth.
Too bad their Board of Directors (BOD) and CEO aren't being pistol whipped and imprisoned. I would have rather seen that done then getting pennies back from the $$$.
You say the market isn't rigged.
It is rigged at all levels and the current government and future government will not be able to stop the massive tidal wave that is coming for all of them if "THE DON'T CHANGE THEIR EVIL WAYS...BABBBBIIIEEEE".
The Army is upto 35M unemployed, we can suspect when it reaches 52M that will be the tipping point. Perhaps that is when hell will be unleashed upon the entire world by the US Citizen to re-caputre all lost and stolen money.
EVERYTHING IS RECOVERABLE BY FORCE, DON'T LET THE US GOVERNMENT KID US.
Please share such topics of conversation at the dinner table, remember to discuss who u voted for and how the other guy actually won?
Mr. President please nail this to the doors of congress.
