Prison For D’Souza, Beach Time For Corzine

Selective enforcement of the law is a dangerous thing.

Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza pleaded guilty to breaking campaign finance laws. He was accused of having urged two friends to make $10,000 contributions to a Senate candidate and then reimbursing them. This is an illegal work-around of campaign contribution limits.

He won’t be sentenced until Sept. 23 but faces 16 months in prison and a $30,000 fine.

So a guy does something wrong and pleads guilty. What’s the big deal?

Well, there’s the ridiculosity (that’s a word, right?) of such campaign finance laws and the pretty serious looming sentence for the crime. Prison.

I should probably mention at this point that D’Souza really, really, really doesn’t like President Obama. In 2012 he produced a popular documentary called 2016: Obama’s America, a harshly critical look at Obama’s worldview and how it affected his governing. That was in turn based on a book called The Roots of Obama’s Rage. Not that D’Souza has avoided criticism from the right, but his disdain for progressives is returned in spades.

The Law Is A Funny Thing

Now let’s take a look at one Jon Corzine. Who is he? Well, he was CEO of Goldman Sachs, spent $62 million of totally clean (I’m sure) cash buying a Senate seat, brought New Jersey to the brink of fiscal ruin in his sole term as governor, and then ended up implicated in one of the largest scandals in Wall Street history. How big? Oh, like $1.6 billion big. Here’s a link to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission complaint.

From a Wall Street Journal MarketWatch write up last June:

In October, 2011, then-MF Global chief Jon Corzine told an employee that they were going to do everything not to take cash from a revolving credit facility even if that meant “going negative” by taking funds from customer accounts. According to a Commodity Futures Trading Commission complaint Thursday, Corzine knew that “going negative” — taking funds from the commodity merchant’s customer accounts — would be a violation of the firm’s policy. The exchange between Corzine and one of his employees is just one of dozens of details explaining how MF Global allegedly improperly moved customer funds in the final days of the firm in 2011, which led to more than $1 billion in missing customer funds. Corzine, a former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs who later became a U.S. senator and governor of New Jersey, was slapped with civil charges Thursday for his role in the collapse of MF Global Holdings Ltd., the commodity trading firm he oversaw.

We should not allow this to happen.

AMEN !!!

Steven....

I would like to agree with you, but the moral authority of our government no longer works for 'We The People'. Starting over, without bloodshed, seems to be the only answer...

If you believe the USA has been so corrupted that we cannot find our way out of the madness unless blood is shed, then you are not alone. Modern-day Progressives/Liberals/Socialists/Marxists etc, refuse to consider any alternative way of thinking, therefore they fight like hell for their position to be THE dominant position in matters of Science, Faith, Society, Morality, Politics, Human Life, etc. I personally have learned through experience that Progressives consider me a lower class of human simply because I dare base my thinking on Facts, Logic, Empirical Data, and something that most human beings have inside of them, no matter their backgrounds or history, or upbringing, or even a lack of upbringing, that has served us well for thousands of years and has kept us from destroying each other like rabid animals... Common-sense.

Common-sense seems to be the missing link in the gene pool for modern-day Progressives, so maybe, we should show them some old fashioned pity for being left-out of the gene pool on Gene Pool Raffle Day, held every day at conception. This may be something we should ponder so in order to claim the high moral ground when approaching this subject!? ...................................... Like HELL! We can still claim the moral high-ground as we scratch their eyes out and break their legs, right? No, we cannot do that. But we can fight with every ounce of energy, and with every dollar we can afford, using words, deeds, and legal actions, whenever they decide that it's time to change what is the 'Reality Paradigm' to 'Fantasy Land'. We must fight these little buggers because we are duty bound to leave a better USA to our offspring, and their offspring, than the one that our parents left to us. Personally, I think the USA needs a do-over, or what I like to call 'A Re-birth'. There is one way that is left to us to repair all the damage that has been done, while leaving intact our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We need a 'New Declaration of Independence' so we can once again start a clean slate. 

However, there is one item that must be included or addressed with our 'New Declaration...', we must outlaw and forever forbid the formation of political parties, to take affect on the very first day of ratification of our 'New Declaration'. (Feel free to ask me some time to explain why 'no political parties' allowed. Will be happy to dig into it with anyone)

If a New Declaration of Independence sounds good to you, please go the following link to read and sign... www.newfreedom2014.com Thank you.

May God bless America!

We send known terrorist's back to "host countries" were they are soon released. We send so called 'white crime' crooks who cost us in excess of billions of dollars to country club fed med and ovamite will want to have 'DSouza' in the worst prison in America for atleast 2 years on probation which is the 'usual' Sentence for this. The way laws are selectively enforced under ovamite and holder is reprehensible and direct violations of American Justice. Ovamite and Holder along with all the other high and low profile liberal's(Communist's) along with his Muslim Brotherhood appointees belong in prison or better in front of a firing squad

If we fail to protect those who take a stand against the injustices in our country ...

 " WE ARE ALL DOOMED TO SUFFER SUCH INJUSTICES "

Just as Mr. D'Souza has done in an attempt to WARN, PREPARE and PROTECT the American people about the Obama Administration's nefarious agenda - we must "RISE and PROTECT" the D'Souza's in our country, if we want to insure the safety of our country and our children  . . .

We must let this administration and media know, that we "REFUSE TO HAVE THEM TARGET D'SOUZA JUST AS THE IRS TARGETED CONSERVATIVE GROUPS"  !!!

 

IN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION:  THIS MOST CORRUPT "CRIMINALLY CONSPIRING" PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRAP TRAITOROUS CONGRESS HAS HAD MORE THAN ENOUGH EVIDENCE OF HERR GESTAPO MUSLIM/COMMUNIST OBAMA'S TOTALLY CONSTITUTIONAL DESPOTIC ABSOLUTE LAWLESSNESS FOR YEARS, BUT INSTEAD OF IMPEACHING HIME FOR HIS TRAITOROUS CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA, THEY ARE ACTUALLY WORKING WITH HIM TO TURN AMERICA INTO A THIRD WORLD BANANA REPUBLIC COMMUNIST "DICTATORSHIP REGIME!"             ALL OF THIS OCCURING WHILE A DUMBED DOWN "ZOMBIE" AMERICA STANDS IDLY BY!   GO FIGURE!

But, is there any surprise?

Obama and his clan should be the ones in prison.

D'Souza, get the hell out of this Marxist country. P.S. take me with you.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
