    The price of gold shot up this week, and silver moved proportionally. Headlines are screaming for gold to hit $10,000 or $50,000. Does this alleged new bull market have legs?

Meet Rep. Mike Rogers: Crony Capitalist & Warfare State Benghazi Blowhard

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

For those of you who don’t know Congressman Mike Rogers, he is the Representative hailing from Michigan’s Eighth District. He is also one of the biggest blowhard, chicken-hawk defenders of unconstitutional NSA spying in all of Washington D.C.

Back in 2012, he gave his support to internet spy bill CISPA by proclaiming: “Stand for America! Support this bill!” Naturally, this clown would also serve as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Rogers is notorious for being one of the staunchest critics of Glenn Greenwald. For example, earlier this year he made up all sort of lies about Greenwald in an attempt to smear the journalist. In response, Greenwald had the following to say about Rogers back in February:

“First is that he’s not only lying, and he is lying, but he not only is lying but he knows that he’s lying. This what is Mike Rogers is notorious for in Washington is literally making things up and smearing political opponents and journalists he doesn’t like.

 

I defy Mike Rogers, if he wants to make that accusation, to come forward and present actual evidence that any journalist has stolen, has sold documents or stolen material or engaged in any kind of criminality. He has no evidence, he’s just making things up.”

You’d think a guy like Rogers who aggressively lobs untrue accusations against a journalist trying to inform the American public about government criminality would have a squeaky clean background himself. After all, he was a former FBI agent. You’d think that, but you’d be wrong.

Incredibly, Dick Morris points out that until recently Mike Rogers’ wife was the president and the CEO of the company that was contracted by the State Department to provide intelligence-based and physical security services. While this sort of crony capitalism is seen as “business as usual” in the cesspool that is D.C., the really crazy part of this story is that as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rogers is charged with investigating the adequacy of security at the Benghazi compound prior to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack.

You can’t find a bigger conflict of interest than that…

Dick Morris writes:

Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is charged with investigating the adequacy of security at the Benghazi compound prior to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack.

 

His wife, Kristi Clemens Rogers was the president and the CEO of the company that was contracted by the State Department to provide that security!

 

Mrs. Rogers, until recently, served as president and CEO of Aegis LLC, the contractor to the United States Department of State for intelligence-based and physical security services.

 

Aegis, a British private military company with overseas offices in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Iraq, Kenya, Nepal and the U.S., won a $10 billion, 5-year contract with the State Department to provide security for U.S. diplomatic posts around the world.

 

Aegis describes itself as “a leading private security company, provides government and corporate clients with a full spectrum of intelligence-led, culturally-sensitive security solutions to operational and development challenges around the world.”

 

Congressman Rogers, who abruptly announced his intention not to seek re-election, has been criticized for dragging his feet in the Benghazi investigation. Only when pressure from back benchers on his committee became intense did he agree to hold last week’s hearing at which former Deputy CIA Director Mike Morrell testified.

 

How on earth can the Rogers family justify having a husband who chairs a Congressional committee charged with reviewing the performance of his wife’s company in guarding the Benghazi compound?

Is this the reason Rogers just abruptly announced his retirement to become a talk radio host?

This type of thing is only frowned upon in non-fascist countries. In other words, it's no biggie here in the US.

Rogers first guest on the talk show will be Jon Corzine. The subject of the show will be how everyone hates dirt farmers....especially ones in Nevada. Also on how there's not much difference between the progressive left and right.

Rome wasn't sacked in a day, and contrary to popular history, most of the damage done to it, that ultimately led to its demise, was inflicted upon it by her own "leaders."

not only egypt and persia but, to quote stephen leeb, one of the things that’s starting to dawn on Saudi Arabia as they look and see the bodies strewn around Libya and Iraq, is that the petro-dollar is not a recipe for longevity.  And it might make a lot more sense to price their valuable commodity, namely oil, in a basket of currencies which consists of economies that are there to stay such as China, Russia, Germany, and also to include gold in that basket.

seems as though that is happening-the gold portion is indirect as russia and china increasing reserves. so even if gold isn't a direct component it is underlying the currencies strength or shall we call it phyzz faith, real faith...not fucking faith backed by morons and the MIC!

oh yea where is our vast stockpile of gold at fort phoney, and also where the fuck is germanys gold? this fake and phoney government is running out of time. moar bombs, that will do it...

Isn't is funny that many of the powerful in Washington come from economically insignificant parts of the country. It's always some asshole from rusty Ohio or dicklick Mississippi or that asshole from the Dakotas who lorded over the Senate from a place with 400,000 people.

Bad example using Ohio.  Im from here and Im usually the last to stick up for it.  However with a state population 7th or 8th in population i think, too lazy to look it up right now, its pretty significant with cities like Columbus, Cincy and Cle.  So by your logic we should have leaders from Cali, Texas or NY only.  Dont get me wrong, our reps, like Boner are a joke just like any other.  But dont you ever mention Ohio and MS in the same sentence please.

FBI doesn't just keep their mouths shut they take control of crime scenes and permanently bury evidence; that's when they're not busy perpetrating crimes themselves.

Children 'Unicorns' here may not know their history of the FBI, but it started in the 1920's by a guy name "GAY EDGAR HOOVER", and it was a federal program to track fudge-packers.

Gay Edgar Hoover held the HELM of the FBI for over 50+ years, and he died in office, at his desk, his private male secretary by his side.

Hoover developed the largest GAY black-book in world history, his book had a list of every gay man on the planet, and what his fetish. Hoover's book was also known as his private 'black-book' for personal use.

Hoover developed the largest library VIDEO collection of child-porn, snuf-porn, and gay-sex in world history.

Janet Reno famous under CLINTON was known to 'borrow' rape videos from the FBI library and show them at private party's when she ran the FLORIDA AG office, and later the US attorney general office. When she wasn't burning children alive in WACO she liked watching them be fucked and tortured, with all the cop's present, local and federal drinking beer, and eating fried pork skin.

This is YOUR America folks.
