Well I’d wondered where’d they gotten to

One’s kept his tan

A reader reports a Noel sighting on Mustique, writing that they were there over Christmas – New Years, with all 20 children, grandchildren and Columbian drug runners. “They still own their house there, they’re still obnoxious.”

How very nice – Walter’s defrauded investors will be relieved to know that at least someone is enjoying their money.

    Looks like we’re never going to know the extent of J.P. Morgan’s involvement in Madoff’s Ponzi scheme:

    ‘JP Morgan Pays $2 Billion to Avoid Prosecution for Its Involvement In Madoff Ponzi Scheme’

    “JP Morgan: Ponzi Schemer

    Bernie Madoff has said all along that JP Morgan knew about – and knowingly profited from – his Ponzi schemes.

    So JP Morgan has agreed to pay the government $2 billion to avoid investigation and prosecution.

    While this may sound like a lot of money, it is spare sofa change for a big bank like JP Morgan.

    It’s not just the Madoff scheme.

    As shown below, the big banks – including JP Morgan – are manipulating virtually every market – both in the financial sector and the real economy – and breaking virtually every law on the books.

    Here are just some of the recent improprieties by big banks: …”

      Well, at least J.P. Morgan got it’s money’s worth in their investment in Barack & Co. That and the banksters won’t be looking at nooses dangling from every lamppost in the Canyon of Heroes for a while more.

  2. Madoff damaged many peoples’ finances But his damage was small-scale compared with the financial crisis. That meltdown was created by government’s attempts to redistribute wealth through sub-standard home loans by the government-sponsored Fannie Mae:

    Taxpayers got part of that bill.

    Madoff got 140 years of prison for wrecking a few thousand people’s savings. Dodd and Frank wrecked those of millions. They relinquished their offices, and their authority, but too late for the victims. Real justice would put Dodd and Frank in striped suits, with that piker, Madoff.

      Dodd & Frank of course were part of the immune political class, like their former colleague Jon “M.F.” Corzine, who is also not wearing the “New Black” in a jumpsuit. The reason they don’t wind up in the other type of Government Issue clothing is that they all know one another’s dirty little secrets and whose skeletons are buried where. Obama, being Prez, holds the super-immunity idol in this perverse unreality show, but only so long as he also controls at least one house of Congress.

  3. I am rapidly coming to the point, after several years of really caring and trying to hold a line, of calling the whole thing beyond any kind of redemption. I used to read about these levels of corruption and theft in novels but here we are now informed daily of our being utterly overwhelmed with incompetent poseurs and thieves at the helm. I don’t see a way out.
