Another European Politican Exposed As Complete Liar

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Remember this guy?

This would be Jerome Cahuzac, the French "budget minister" who was tasked with rooting out tax fraud by his socialist "75% tax or the capitalist pigs win" overlord, and who resigned two weeks ago to avoid "hindering" an investigation into allegations he had a secret Swiss account, all the while maintaining his innocence? Well, he was just exposed as the latest lying Eurocrat politicians.

  • FORMER FRENCH BUDGET MINISTER SAYS LIED ABOUT BANK ACCOUNT
  • EX-FRENCH BUDGET MINISTER SAYS HAS HAD THE FOREIGN BANK ACCOUNT FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS
  • EX-FRENCH BUDGET MINISTER SAYS HAD EU600,000 IN FOREIGN ACCOUNT
  • EX-FRENCH BUDGET MINISTER APOLOGIZES TO HOLLANDE, AYRAULT

Where did he make the confession?

  • EX-FRENCH BUDGET MINISTER COMMENTED ON HIS BLOG TODAY

The take home:

  • EX-FRENCH BUDGET MINISTER SAYS `CAUGHT IN SPIRAL OF LIES'

In other words: just another politician.

But that's ok: it got serious - he could have gone to jail or been fired in disgrace, so naturally he had to lie.

Le communiqué de Jérôme Cahuzac :

Par lettre du 26 mars 2013, j'ai demandé à Messieurs les juges d'instruction Roger Le Loire et Renaud Van Ruymbeke de bien vouloir me recevoir afin que, délivré des obligations de ma fonction, je puisse enfin donner les explications qui s'imposent au regard de la détention à l'étranger d'un compte bancaire dont je suis le bénéficiaire depuis une vingtaine d'années.

J'ai rencontré les deux juges aujourd'hui. Je leur ai confirmé l'existence de ce compte et je les ai informés de ce que j'avais d'ores et déjà donné les instructions nécessaires pour que l'intégralité des actifs déposés sur ce compte, qui n'a pas été abondé depuis une douzaine d'années, soit environ 600.000 €, soient rapatriés sur mon compte bancaire à Paris.

A Monsieur le Président de la République, au Premier Ministre, à mes anciens collègues du gouvernement, je demande pardon du dommage que je leur ai causé. A mes collègues parlementaires, à mes électeurs, aux Françaises et aux Français j'exprime mes sincères et plus profonds regrets. Je pense aussi à mes collaborateurs, à mes amis et à ma famille que j'ai tant déçus.

J'ai mené une lutte intérieure taraudante pour tenter de résoudre le conflit entre le devoir de vérité auquel j'ai manqué et le souci de remplir les missions qui m'ont été confiées et notamment la dernière que je n'ai pu mener à bien. J'ai été pris dans une spirale du mensonge et m'y suis fourvoyé. Je suis dévasté par le remords.

Penser que je pourrais éviter d'affronter un passé que je voulais considérer comme révolu était une faute inqualifiable. J'affronterai désormais cette réalité en toute transparence.

Using Google translate:

 

By letter dated 26 March 2013, I asked the gentlemen judges Roger Le Loire and Renaud Van Ruymbeke kindly receive so issued bonds of my office, I can finally give the explanations required under the custody of a foreign bank account which I am the beneficiary for twenty years.

I met the two judges today. I told them confirmed this account and I informed them that I had already given the necessary instructions for all assets deposited in this account, which has not been echoed since a dozen years, or about € 600,000, to be repatriated to my bank account in Paris.

To the President of the Republic, the Prime Minister, to my former colleagues in government, I apologize for the damage that I have caused. In my parliamentary colleagues, my constituents, to French and French to express my sincere and deepest regrets. I also think my colleagues, my friends and my family that I am so disappointed.

I conducted an internal struggle tapping to try to resolve the conflict between the duty of truth which I missed and the desire to fulfill the missions were entrusted to me and especially the last one that I could not carry out . I was caught in a spiral of lies and I am mistaken. I am devastated by remorse.

Think I could avoid facing a past that I wanted to look like was a mistake unspeakable past. I will face this reality now seamlessly.

You are confusing our "legal system" with this justice system you speak of. With enouhg money and enough lawyers, you can be found innocent of nearly anything. Just ask OJ and Casey Anthony.

Too big to jail?

Sets a dangerous precedent? (JPM won't tolerate it)

Goldman won't tolerate it?

It did not directly affect investors?

There are too many unknown unknowns as far as the eye can see at this stage? 

Could destabilize the markets?

Could undermine confidence in primary dealers?

Bail in?

Would strike at the very heart of the system that has made America what she is today?

Really the possibilities are endless.

The Great Cyprus Bank Robbery

Ron Paul

April 1, 2013

 

"The elites in the EU and IMF failed to learn their lesson from the popular backlash to these tax proposals, and have openly talked about using Cyprus as a template for future bank bailouts. This raises the prospect of raids on bank accounts, pension funds, and any investments the government can get its hands on. In other words, no one's money is safe in any financial institution in Europe. Bank runs are now a certainty in future crises, as the people realize that they do not really own the money in their accounts. How long before bureaucrat and banker try that here?

Unfortunately, all of this is the predictable result of a fiat paper money system combined with fractional reserve banking. When governments and banks collude to monopolize the monetary system so that they can create money out of thin air, the result is a business cycle that wreaks havoc on the economy. Pyramiding more and more loans on top of a tiny base of money will create an economic house of cards just waiting to collapse. The situation in Cyprus should be both a lesson and a warning to the United States. We need to end the Federal Reserve, stay away from propping up the euro, and return to a sound monetary system."

Actually Cahuzac is a victim of the statist ideology stating that everything you do must be taxed , reported , investigated. If he lived in the US pre Federal reserve he would know what a free country means and he would not have these issues. He was a succesful doctor/businessman before entering politics and I guess his problem is he didn't realize his troubles come from the deadly socialist ideology. He allied himself with the devils. I would have liked him to come out bashing these mindless corrupt kleptocracts who over the last 30 years have totally gutted france through taxes and government spending. And now, even the light of America is going down, with statist thugs cheering and howling in the night. Truly despicable but even more despicable is the utter cluelessness of the majority of the population who have no clue what a free society means.

As a rule of thumb, the more a politician preaches fake socialism and the more radical he is about it, the more dishonest and corrupt he is. Jerome Cahuzac fits this model exactly.

One good example was the UK's Neil Kinnock (one-time leader of the socialist Labour Party until he got well and truly drubbed at an election), and far better known as "Neil Pillock" or even better known as "The Welsh Windbag".

After his election drubbing, he slowly began to embrace a change in the UK's voting system from 'First Past The Post' to one of the proportional systems. When a vote came up several years ago he spent considerable time on MSM peddling the idea of how much 'fairer' a proportional system would be.

Well, the Brits didn't like the idea of changing their voting system, so it never got through.

But most importantly at the time is that some bright spark discovered that 'a certain person' had recently invested heavily in shares of the company who were expected to get the contract for supplying automated vote-counting machines. Obviously in the hope of making a handsome profit. That person was none other than The Welsh Windbag himself, Neil Kinnock.

Who-da-thunk-it?

And Kinnock's second successor was of course one Tony Blair, another lying, lifelong socialist who turned Britain into a modern day fascist surveillance state. He is now a £millionaire and spends his time adding zero value to the Middle East troubles because nobody on either side trusts him.

These people are nothing less than parasitic filth who should be swept away from any public office.

How surprising! 'Americans' doing the 'american' thing...

Some time ago, it was reported that an 'american' (a negro with Junior in his name) acknowledged himself guilty of charges of taking money to buy fur etc

At this time, it was suggested that the negro might be a mental.

I underlined the very possibility of it.

Because, when you are an 'american', you must be a mental when you acknowledge yourself guilty.

Here's another example: this 'american' residing in France is a sane 'american'. He denied, denied, claimed he was not guilty until the point of no return.

Armstrong, that guy etc

When you are an 'american', you deny, you claim you are innocent. You never take responsibility for that kind of shit, save when you are forced to it.

I wonder how much this 'american' sold his confession, just as Armstrong did.

'Americans' usually monetize their confession.
