Full Letter From Marcy Kaptur And 61 Congressmen Demanding Erik Holder Investigate Goldman

The noose is tightening, even though one could speculate the one doing the tightening ought to be on the other side of the rope as well. That said, we sure miss the days when Dick Bove used to provide instacommentary on Wells and Goldman, typically of the buy every dip format. That beard makes him look so wise and grizzled... That, or in dire need of grooming.

Marcy Kaptur Writes To AG Holder, Demands A Full Scale Criminal Investigation Of Goldman Sachs

Dear Attorney General Holder:

While the SEC lacks the authority to act beyond civil actions, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has the power to file criminal actions against those who commit financial fraud. We ask assurance from you that the U.S. Department of Justice is closely looking at this case and similar cases to further investigate and prosecute the criminals involved in this, and other financially fraudulent acts. Furthermore, if the DOJ is not currently looking into this particular case, we respectfully ask you to ensure that the U.S. Department of Justice immediately open a case on this matter and investigate it with the full authority and power that your agency holds. The American people both demand and deserve justice in the matter of Wall Street banks whom the American taxpayers bailed out, only to see unemployment and housing foreclosures rise.

If you think that the world of crime has to be shady and underhand, you are wrong. With the beginning of the fourth world war, organised crime has globalised its activities. In this new war, politics, as the organiser of the nation state, no longer exists. Now politics serves solely in order to manage the economy, and politicians are now merely company managers. An oft misunderstand leader, Subcomandante Marcos, now Delegado Zero, tried to warn us more than 12 years ago that "it takes no more than a few minutes for companies and states to be sunk", and that they would be sunk, not by military theater operations, but by hurricanes of finance. More than a decade later, with many of his predictions now coming true, perhaps it's finally time we started listening to him.
