Elizabeth Warren Confronts Eric Holder, Ben Bernanke And Mary Jo White On Too-Big-To-Jail

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Elizabeth Warren is one of the few Senators out there pushing to understand why the federal government has created an untouchable class of criminals in America that can do whatever they want whenever they want and, not only get away with it, but also get bailed out when they make mistakes.  In case you missed it, I highlighted a powerful video a few months ago in which she made regulators squirm when confronted on “too big to jail.”  Now she has written a letter to Ben Bernanke, Eric Holder and Mary Jo White.  My favorite line is:

“If large financial institutions can break the law and accumulate millions in profits and, if they get caught, settle by paying out of those profits, they do not have much incentive to follow the law.”

Indeed, which is why they don’t.  Full letter embedded below.

She is pulling cover for one of the team.

It's just another variation of the Shell Game. Eventually there will be so many distractions coming out of D.C. the public will get distracted by all the distractions and probably give up and go back to watching Dancing With The Stars.

Americans have the attention span of a teenager suffering from pre-mature ejaculation when looking at a Victoria's catalog for the first time. So many va-ji-ji's, and so little time.

It's all an act. Warren is an Israel Firster. Just like all of our Senators, she'll do the donkey for Israel.

Remember, this is the same person who claimed to have tribal ancestry to advance her own career and for her own gain. Clearly there are integrity issues. She needs to be tossed under the bus with all the same people she appears to be going after now, along with the rest of DC.

"Elizabeth Warren is one of the few Senators out there pushing to understand why the federal government has created an untouchable class of criminals in America that can do whatever they want whenever they want and, not only get away with it, but also get bailed out when they make mistakes."

Pulease...she knows perfectly well...she participated in it.

"Harvard professor and U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren is back in the headlines after it was revealed that she took part in around 12 lucrative real estate deals using manoeuvres such as ‘flipping’ properties to make profits.

Warren has in the past rallied against predatory banks and heartless foreclosures but that didn’t stop her using the controversial tactics to make fortunes."

Maybe she's developed a 1/32 guilty conscience.

Yup, some of the ideological crap she came out with in last year's campaign was enough.

She's way too shiny to be golden, more like bold as brass.

nmewn's picture

Its beyond my comprehension how someone, caught gaming the system...whether by flipping houses (I didn't, she did) claiming something she wasn't until run to ground...1/32nd...lol...well, so am I, Creek...or claiming she is one of us (how can she be, I wasn't a tenured professor gaining tenure through manipulation).

The last straw was introducing to public discourse "You didn't build that."

This, above all else, says what & who she is. What she left out was, the one who built the business and employed people did in fact pay the taxes to...build the roads, to pay for police, for firemen, paramedics...all of it...along with his/her employees.

She's either stupid or a class warrior/bomb thrower out to make a name for herself in the public eye at the expense of all of us...while the above goes unnoticed or unremarked on in the MSM.

I'm going with the latter.

After seeing her "You didn't build that" video, I was just amazed how white a little Obama brown nose could be. I guess Obungo ate white chocolate that day.

All she's doing is trying to get enough money to fund Obamacare. She's too stupid to understand it will take an infinite amount of money to fund that monster.

"Woman of color" Warren is a Marxist creep.  I don't care how shrill her populist rhetoric is, she is a mediocre intellect and gross to boot.

Silly me... I thought the article was saying Eric Holder, Ben Bernanke And Mary Jo White are too big to jail.

Senator Elizabeth Warren has done more for the rights of joe six-pack and betty home-maker regarding all consumer issues than any fucking congress-person has accomplished in the last thirty years... she is an advocate for the proletariat, period! Her heart has always been in the right place... god bless ya Elizabeth!!!

She grew up so poor in Oklahoma that she hardly could afford to fuel her new MGB convertible to get to High School.

"....to follow the law."

There is no more rule of law, there hasn't been any for quite a few years, it's all just one big joke playing itself out very, very slowly.

She is the worst type.

The type of politician who want to be part of the future executioners like Robespierre in France Mao in China or Staline in Russia.

 

They trynna catch me ridin dirty's picture

EXACTLY!  That is EXACTLY the type of person she is.  White liberal female useful idiots like her are the most dangerous, next to "those who we are not allowed to name."

Wait a second... She claims to be Native American.... At least she claimed that long enough to get into Harvard.  Typical, she used the truley downtrodden for her own persoanal gain.  What a dirt bag she is...

You mean "vagina", don't you?

Ohh dear Lord in Heaven! I used the word "vagina" in the context of Elizabeth Warren.

Excuse me while I go and throw up and then mourn the fact that my dick will never again sport wood. My wife is going to divorce me now.

Elizabeth Warren, who used to be Special Advisor to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, who wants to nationalize the $19+ trillion in Americans' retirement accounts - to manage our money and protect us from financial scams. aka Social Security 2.0

A lot of Warren trolls out in force on this thread.  Haven't any of these Warren fans heard this woman's sicko Marxist rhetoric of the past few years?

Based on her rabid tirades against "unfairness" caused by not enough government and businesspeople needing to "give back," I am positive that she is the exact sort of person who would be zealously cheering on the Cheka if we ever had a Bolshevik Revolution here in the US.  In fact, she'd probably be leading them.

Savyindallas's picture

Give the Banksters another 3-5 years. You'll prefer the Bolsheviks if you can believe that -our party is about to end. The present government is cut from the same mold. The Bolsheviks were backed by the Banksters, supported in the early years by the US government (read professor Sutton) and then we allied with the mass murderer Bolshevik Stalin to crush the Germans whose primary goal (next to getting back German land stoled at the treaty of Versailles) was to end the evil scourge of Bolshevism. -we fought on the wrong side of WW2 - it's indisputable if you know real history -  unless you are a Rothschild/Rockefeller Bolshevik.

They trynna catch me ridin dirty's picture

I know that the Bolsheviks were funded by Jacob Schiff and Kuhn Loeb.  That doesn't change the fact that Trotsky and Lenin truly believed in the poison they were spewing.  And you'd better believe the 1917 Russian version of Elizabeth Warren was right there behind them on the stage, before she and the other useful idiots were purged.

MathWins's picture

I'm a conservative BUT I am not a koolaid drinker.  How can you argue with this statement from her?  “If large financial institutions can break the law and accumulate millions in profits and, if they get caught, settle by paying out of those profits, they do not have much incentive to follow the law.”

I wish more lawmakers were out there saying this!  And trying to do something about it.

Would it be too much to ask all of the fines that are levied by the government against corporations and banks actually be divided equally amongst the people instead of the the government coffers?   Think about the tobacco, microsoft and so many other fines that have gone back to the government even though it wasn't the government that was harmed per se it was the people.  The fines are meaningless to the offending company and also we the people so not sure what point the fines actually serve.  Maybe a line item review of where the fine monies have actually gone to for starters.

President Warren will suceed President Biden in 2017... During the depths of the real Depression it will be perfect timing for a brilliant woman with the tenacity of a Teddy Roosevelt, the vision of a Reagan, the compassion of a Clinton and the boldness of FDR to lead....!!

I think it is interesting that here at ZH, anytime Warrens name comes up , it's close to a 50-50 split. Can't think of anyone else who gets ZH so divided.

They trynna catch me ridin dirty's picture

A lot of otherwise smart guys seem to fall blindly in love anytime anyone criticizes "the banks."  They don't bother to notice the poison that communists like Warren are spewing on all other issues.  If Warren had her way, in her heart of hearts, anyone caught expressing an 'incorrect' opinion about race and gender would be forced into 'reeducation.'  Of that I have zero doubt.

Look people - at some point we have to decide who is evil and who may not be totally evil. It isn't a matter of good against evil - black and white. Take your pick - but of everyone in DC today I would put Elizabeth Warren right near the top of my list of people who can be trusted to do the right thing when push comes to shove. Seems to me that a lot of the commentators here today like the salty taste they get on their lips when pissing into a very strong wind.

They trynna catch me ridin dirty's picture

She is 100% evil.  She is running on Marxist logic, laying claim to other people's property.  Add to that her sick social views on race, gender, sexuality, and you've got someone the likes of which turn this country into the People's Republic of Cherokeestan if she had her way.

"at some point we have to decide who is evil and who may not be totally evil"

such low standards for a servant of a constitutional republic, how about either keep the oath you took or hang yourself, is that too much to ask.

"when push comes to shove" will come to mind as the "not totally evil" are pushing you towards the ditch and shoving your ass into a mass grave as the evil watch.

I nearly busted a gut from laughing.

Elizabeth Warren, the Last Great 'Lilly White' Hope for the American people.

And let's' not forget she's also got the heart of a Noble Savage.

Anyone willing to lie about their heritage to move ahead of others in line for federal handouts is the lowest form of bottom feeder.
