Baseball home run king Barry Bonds was found guilty this year on the felony charge of obstructing justice, but the judge declared a mistrial on the three other counts. Whether or not Bonds goes to jail remains to be seen.
Did Clemens or Bonds steal trillions of dollars?
Did their alleged activities cause a massive economic recession that has put millions out of work and caused millions more to lose their homes?
They might of shattered the dreams of some youngsters who looked upon them as idols, but they didn't rape this nation thru fraudulent schemes that wrecked our economy so badly, we might never recover from these Wall Street con games.
But when it comes to investigating Wall Street crimes, both the Congress and DOJ are MIA:
In Financial Crisis, No Prosecutions of Top Figures April 14, 2011Who or what holds this immense power over our so-called 'public servants' that makes them piss in their pants anytime they might have thoughts about the world's largest counterfeiting operation, the Federal Reserve?
It is a question asked repeatedly across America: why, in the aftermath of a financial mess that generated hundreds of billions in losses, have no high-profile participants in the disaster been prosecuted?
On Nov. 22, 1963 [Date of JFK's Murder], the government of the United States was taken over by the superpower group that wanted an escalation of the warfare in Indochina, and a continuing military buildup for generations to come.
Meet Fletcher Prouty, a former colonel in the United States Air Force who served as Chief of Special Operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President John F. Kennedy. Prouty, due to his being assigned from 1955-1964 to U.S. Air Force Headquarters where he directed the creation of an Air Force worldwide system for "Military Support of the Clandestine Operations of the CIA", as required by a new National Security Council Directive, 5412 of March, 1954, had a unique insider's view of the Fed's muscle, the CIA.Source: Wikipedia
Prouty has written that he believes Kennedy's assassination was a coup d'etat, and that there is a secret, global "power elite" at work to direct world events.
JFK was assassinated because he was going to restructure the Federal Reserve System so it could no longer be used by the ruling powers to manipulate the economy.Colonel James Gritz, Called to Serve: Profiles in Conspiracy from John F. Kennedy to George Bush
"When Kennedy called for a return of America's currency to the gold standard, and the dismantling of the Federal Reserve System -- he actually minted non-debt money that does not bear the mark of the Federal Reserve; when he dared to actually exercise the leadership authority granted to him by the U.S. Constitution . . . Kennedy prepared his own death warrant. It was time for him to go."
All Thomas Jefferson quotes from this link at the "Daily Bail."
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
"I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale." --Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1816.
The Federal Reserve — the quasi-autonomous body that controls the US money supply — is a Ponzi scheme that created bubble after bubble in the US economy and needs to be held accountable for its actions, says Eliot Spitzer, the former governor and attorney-general of New York.
In a wide-ranging discussion of the bank bailouts on MSNBCs Morning Meeting, host Dylan Ratigan described the process by which the Federal Reserve exchanged $13.9 trillion of bad bank debt for cash that it gave to the struggling banks.
"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by the deluge of bank paper. It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who, instead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of no useful industry of theirs." --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Cooper, 1814.

"The Bank of the United States is one of the most deadly hostilities existing, against the principles and form of our Constitution. An institution like this, penetrating by its branches every part of the Union, acting by command and in phalanx, may, in a critical moment, upset the government. I deem no government safe which is under the vassalage of any self-constituted authorities, or any other authority than that of the nation, or its regular functionaries. What an obstruction could not this bank of the United States, with all its branch banks, be in time of war! It might dictate to us the peace we should accept, or withdraw its aids. Ought we then to give further growth to an institution so powerful, so hostile?" --Thomas Jefferson to Albert Gallatin, 1803
The true cost of the bank bailout
Much has been made of the $700 billion in taxpayer money used to bail out the banks in the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). But Bloomberg News reporter Bob Ivry explains to NEED TO KNOW that the true cost was actually closer to $12.8 trillion.
"The art and mystery of banks... is established on the principle that 'private debts are a public blessing.' That the evidences of those private debts, called bank notes, become active capital, and aliment the whole commerce, manufactures, and agriculture of the United States. Here are a set of people, for instance, who have bestowed on us the great blessing of running in our debt about two hundred millions of dollars, without our knowing who they are, where they are, or what property they have to pay this debt when called on." -- Thomas Jefferson, October 1815 letter to (former) Treasury Secretary, Albert Gallatin.
Fed Won't Tell Us Where They Put Our Money
Watch more at the "Young Turks."
"If the debt which the banking companies owe be a blessing to anybody, it is to themselves alone, who are realizing a solid interest of eight or ten per cent on it. As to the public, these companies have banished all our gold and silver medium, which, before their institution, we had without interest, which never could have perished in our hands, and would have been our salvation now in the hour of war; instead of which they have given us two hundred million of froth and bubble, on which we are to pay them heavy interest, until it shall vanish into air... We are warranted, then, in affirming that this parody on the principle of 'a public debt being a public blessing,' and its mutation into the blessing of private instead of public debts, is as ridiculous as the original principle itself." --Thomas Jefferson to John W. Eppes, 1813.
Alan Grayson: "Which Foreigners Got the Fed's $500,000,000,000?" Bernanke: "I Don't Know."
This is Congressman Alan Grayson questioning Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on $550B of loans to foreigners (or 'central liquidity swaps' in Federal Reserve-ese').
As the Fed was lending this money, the dollar increased by 30% in value. Grayson asks, was this a coincidence? Bernanke's answer: YES
'The answer to the Kennedy assassination is with the Federal Reserve Bank. Don't underestimate that. It's wrong to blame it on (CIA official James) Angleton and the CIA per se only. This is only one finger of the same hand. The people who supply the money are above the CIA.' - wife of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, told to author A.J. Weberman
Abolish the FED and Americans will SAVE 300-400 BILLION a year in interest payments to those 'Gucci Gangsters.'
That's the interest we get charged to borrow OUR OWN MONEY.
That's insane and the greatest racket in history.
It's time to WTFU America and realize our government has been hijacked by a motley collection of thieves; liars; traitors and mass murderers who will do ANYTHING to get more power and money.
We live under the jack-boot of tyranny, not the fresh air of democracy.
The ones in power don't give a damn about 'We the People.'
