Alayne Fleischmann couldn’t take it anymore
Matt Taibbi: Rolling Stone Magazine this week interviews a whistle blower. Someone that Jamie Dimon paid a $9 Billion fine to cover up and silence. You want a glimpse of what REALLY happened on Wall Street? You want to see how the government entered into the scheme and covered up the greatest economic crime in human history? Read Taibbi’s story.
Tonight we will talk about the real story. And we will talk about what nobody wants to talk about and why — nobody except people like Elizabeth Warren. While Democrats were busy showing their political incompetence the past couple years, Warren has been speaking to packed houses — packed with Republicans, Democrats and Independents. They all understand one thing — Wall Street screwed the country, maybe the world and the U.S. government let them get away with it and keep the money they stole. We are not talking about grocery store money here. We are talking about an amount of money in excess of the Federal debt and Gross Domestic Product combined.
Democrats were playing the old game when the country was crying out for real efforts and honest talk about economic policy, law enforcement, and putting America right-side up. I said years ago that if anyone wants to really win big in politics they need only run against the banks and for the common guy. But Democrats and Republicans avoided the banks like a third rail in the subway. And that is because they were all getting money from Wall Street. Dick Durbin said it best when the Senator from Illinois said “The Banks own this place.”
