WATCH: Edith O'Brien Pleads The 5th On Corzine

In my plunge back into MF Global earlier, I found this.

Has not been posted before.  MF Treasurer Edith O'Brien pleads the fifth before the House Financial Services Committee, March 28, 2012.

I wish the video was still available but... in light of the question he asked Edith O'Brien regarding co-operation with federal authorities, the readership here at the DB will find this very interesting.

After O'Brien pleaded the fifth, prosecutors should have offered her an immunity deal. With a deal in place, O'Brien could have given complete testimony that would have revealed who gave the code red for the $1.6 billion plunder of segregated customer accounts.

The immunity deal was never reached, even though prosecutors were reportedly considering it in June 2012--back when MF Global was in the headlines.


There has been absolutely no follow-up on that story by Charlie Gasparino or anyone else in the media.

This is a familiar pattern to anyone who's followed the many kleptocratic episodes that have occurred starting with the bailout of Bear Stearns in March 2008 (or even for the last year alone for that matter): news event flares up, federal officials jawbone and form steering committees, media moves on to other stories (like the Obamney conventions), officials stop pretending to give a shit and drop the matter altogether.

Apparently the American media and the public are so stupid that they're unable to extrapolate from events like MF Global to arrive at the inevitable conclusion that the death of justice and the rule of law spells the abrupt end of every bank account, checking account, pension fund, and 401(k) plan. One day it's all going to go bye-bye, simply because there is every reason to fleece as many people as possible and absolutely no reason not to.

Ironically, the hundreds of millions of people whose brains have been rotted out by the narcotic of TV and iPhones will at last get the one thing they crave above all else, namely, never being bored for the rest of their lives.

"Ironically, the hundreds of millions of people whose brains have been rotted out by the narcotic of TV and iPhones will at last get the one thing they crave above all else, namely, never being bored for the rest of their lives."

As they're suffocated by the slime produced naturally by the politicians and their elite masters, "the rest of their lives" may be a very short time indeed.

Eric 'The Holder' Holder is being a good little clam. All that Wall Street loot going into offshore bank accounts in queen lizard's British protectorate banks. Queen lizard claims to 'not have jurisdiction' or authority to review these banks' ledgers and other records. Liz happens to be the 'GrandPatron' of ALL freemasonry and it is a sworn oath of loyalty not to prosecute or finger other freemasons. This oath is made by ALL high ranking freemasons. A study of correlations of freemasons, Corzine and the top involved officials finds a group feeling they are above U.S. laws, as freemasons aspire to.

George Washington, Madison, Lincoln, et al warned us about this Anglophile group. The Skull and Bones piracy goes back a minimum of 300 years in loyalty and cooperation with the English crown. Freemasonry goes back to days concurrent with the declaration of independence by the colonies in the New World, with returning the colonies to Britannia at the opportune time the main goal. Rhodes Scholars also work off the premise they will have to work against American interests. Well, guess what? 9-11-2001 seems to have been day one of this offensive, like the Tet holiday in Vietnam in 1968. Trillions have been stolen so far. The destruction to the economy, agricultural output and the growth of carpetbagging of weather distressed farmland has been extensive. America farts and goes back to sleep.
