The U.S. Justice System Must Focus On Elite Criminality

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Two very important articles published in recent days serve to once again highlight America’s metastasizing elite criminality problem. A problem which our justice system simply refuses to address.

This corrupt two-tier justice system is something I’ve been focused on from the very beginning of my writings, and I continue to see it as a civilization-level threat for this country if not aggressively addressed and confronted in the very near future.

The two articles in question focus on different aspects of untouchable elite culture in America.

The first relates to the continued fraud pervasive in America’s largest financial institution, while the second covers a thirty year history of predatory sexual behavior by one of Hollywood’s biggest moguls, Harvey Weinstein. In both cases, countless people have known and reported on repeated abuses perpetrated by both the institution and the man, yet the U.S. justice system and the vast majority of “elite” culture happily help shield them from justice. Predators are predators, and elite predators are far more dangerous to society that your average street crook, so why does our justice situation deal with it in the exact opposite way?

Let’s start with the blockbuster article published in The Nation by the always informative David Dayen. The article is titled, How America’s Biggest Bank Paid Its Fine for the 2008 Mortgage Crisis—With Phony Mortgages!

Here’s just brief excerpt:

JPMorgan’s share of the settlement was $5.3 billion, but only $1.1 billion had to be paid in cash; the other $4.2 billion was to come in the form of financial relief for homeowners in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure. The settlement called for JPMorgan to reduce the amounts owed, modify the loan terms, and take other steps to help distressed Americans keep their homes. A separate 2013 settlement against the bank for deceiving mortgage investors included another $4 billion in consumer relief.

 

A Nation investigation can now reveal how JPMorgan met part of its $8.2 billion settlement burden: by using other people’s money.

 

Here’s how the alleged scam worked. JPMorgan moved to forgive the mortgages of tens of thousands of homeowners; the feds, in turn, credited these canceled loans against the penalties due under the 2012 and 2013 settlements. But here’s the rub: In many instances, JPMorgan was forgiving loans on properties it no longer owned.

 

The alleged fraud is described in internal JPMorgan documents, public records, testimony from homeowners and investors burned in the scam, and other evidence presented in a blockbuster lawsuit against JPMorgan, now being heard in US District Court in New York City.

Sounds hard to believe, but it’s true. Not only that, but as we’ve come to expect from the “rule of law” in America, it somehow never applies to that group of people with the greatest ability to financially destroy people and their lives. Bankers. For example, here’s some more from the same piece:

Federal appointees have been complicit in this as well. E-mails show that the Office of Mortgage Settlement Oversight, charged by the government with ensuring the banks’ compliance with the two federal settlements, gave JPMorgan the green light to mass-forgive its loans. This served two purposes for the bank: It could take settlement credit for forgiving the loans, and it could also hide these loans—which JPMorgan had allegedly been handling improperly—from the settlements’ testing regimes.

 

“No one in Washington seems to understand why Americans think that different rules apply to Wall Street, and why they’re so mad about that,” said former congressman Miller. “This is why.”

 

Most of the loans that JPMorgan released—and received settlement credit for—were all but worthless. Homeowners had abandoned the homes years earlier, expecting JPMorgan to foreclose, only to have the bank forgive the loan after the fact. That forgiveness transferred responsibility for paying back taxes and making repairs back to the homeowner. It was like a recurring horror story in which “zombie foreclosures” were resurrected from the dead to wreak havoc on people’s financial lives.

 

Federal officials knew about the problems and did nothing. In July 2014, the City of Milwaukee wrote to Joseph Smith, the federal oversight monitor, alerting him that “thousands of homeowners” were engulfed in legal nightmares because of the confusion that banks had sown about who really owned their mortgages. In a deposition for the lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase, Smith admitted that he did not recall responding to the City of Milwaukee’s letter.

 

Few would expect Jeff Sessions’s Justice Department to pursue such a case, but what this sorry episode most highlights is the pathetic disciplining of Wall Street during the Obama administration.

 

JPMorgan’s litany of acknowledged criminal abuses over the past decade reads like a rap sheet, extending well beyond mortgage fraud to encompass practically every part of the bank’s business. But instead of holding JPMorgan’s executives responsible for what looks like a criminal racket, Obama’s Justice Department negotiated weak settlement after weak settlement. Adding insult to injury, JPMorgan then wriggled out of paying its full penalties by using other people’s money.

 

The larger lessons here command special attention in the Trump era. Negotiating weak settlements that don’t force mega-banks to even pay their fines, much less put executives in prison, turns the concept of accountability into a mirthless farce. Telegraphing to executives that they will emerge unscathed after committing crimes not only invites further crimes; it makes another financial crisis more likely. The widespread belief that the United States has a two-tiered system of justice—that the game is rigged for the rich and the powerful—also enabled the rise of Trump. We cannot expect Americans to trust a system that lets Wall Street fraudsters roam free while millions of hard-working taxpayers get the shaft.

Of course, this is just the latest when it comes to JP Morgan. I highlighted the firm’s rap sheet in last month’s post, Which is Fraudulent – Bitcoin or JP Morgan?

How many JP Morgan executives have gone to jail?

Now onto Harvey Weinstein, a guy whose cretinous behavior has been the biggest non-secret in Hollywood for decades. Just like with banker crooks, he mere settles cases and continues to walk around, freely hunting the next defenseless victim.

The New York Times article published yesterday exposing some of this grotesque man’s history was extraordinary and I suggest everyone read it. Here’s just a little from the piece, Harvey Weinstein Paid Off Sexual Harassment Cases for Years:

Two decades ago, the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein invited Ashley Judd to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what the young actress expected to be a business breakfast meeting. Instead, he had her sent up to his room, where he appeared in a bathrobe and asked if he could give her a massage or she could watch him shower, she recalled in an interview.

 

“How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?” Ms. Judd said she remembers thinking.

 

In 2014, Mr. Weinstein invited Emily Nestor, who had worked just one day as a temporary employee, to the same hotel and made another offer: If she accepted his sexual advances, he would boost her career, according to accounts she provided to colleagues who sent them to Weinstein Company executives. The following year, once again at the Peninsula, a female assistant said Mr. Weinstein badgered her into giving him a massage while he was naked, leaving her “crying and very distraught,” wrote a colleague, Lauren O’Connor, in a searing memo asserting sexual harassment and other misconduct by their boss.

 

There is a toxic environment for women at this company,” Ms. O’Connor said in the letter, addressed to several executives at the company run by Mr. Weinstein.

 

Dozens of Mr. Weinstein’s former and current employees, from assistants to top executives, said they knew of inappropriate conduct while they worked for him. Only a handful said they ever confronted him.

 

Mr. Weinstein enforced a code of silence; employees of the Weinstein Company have contracts saying they will not criticize it or its leaders in a way that could harm its “business reputation” or “any employee’s personal reputation,” a recent document shows. And most of the women accepting payouts agreed to confidentiality clauses prohibiting them from speaking about the deals or the events that led to them.

 

In interviews, some of the former employees who said they had troubling experiences with Mr. Weinstein asked a common question: How could allegations repeating the same pattern — young women, a powerful male producer, even some of the same hotels — have accumulated for almost three decades?

 

“It wasn’t a secret to the inner circle,” said Kathy DeClesis, Bob Weinstein’s assistant in the early 1990s. She supervised a young woman who left the company abruptly after an encounter with Harvey Weinstein and who later received a settlement, according to several former employees.

 

In March 2015, Mr. Weinstein had invited Ambra Battilana, an Italian model and aspiring actress, to his TriBeCa office on a Friday evening to discuss her career. Within hours, she called the police. Ms. Battilana told them that Mr. Weinstein had grabbed her breasts after asking if they were real and put his hands up her skirt, the police report says.

 

The claims were taken up by the New York Police Department’s Special Victims Squad and splashed across the pages of tabloids, along with reports that the woman had worked with investigators to secretly record a confession from Mr. Weinstein. The Manhattan district attorney’s office later declined to bring charges.

As disturbing as all that is, it might be the tip of the iceberg. Here’s some additional info from an article published today by The Daily Beast, Hollywood’s Loud Silence on Harvey Weinstein:

The Times piece later identified the 1997 actress as Rose McGowan, who starred in the 1996 film Scream, which was distributed by Weinstein-owned Dimension Films. In October 2016, McGowan tweeted, “Because my ex sold our movie to my rapist for distribution #WhyWomenDontReport.” It’s not known whom McGowan was referring to, though she dated filmmaker Robert Rodriguez from 2006 to 2009, and their film Planet Terror was distributed by Weinstein in 2007.

 

In the wake of the blockbuster Times exposé, The Daily Beast reached out to dozens of prominent actors, actresses, and filmmakers—who both have andhave not worked with Weinstein—only to receive many replies of “no comment” and plenty of radio silence.

Elite criminals are the most dangerous criminals on earth, but our justice system treats them like well-meaning philosopher kings who deserve endless breaks in the face of rampant unethical and often evil behavior. It should be completely obvious to everyone that the only reason elite crooks get treated with kid gloves is because they’re rich and powerful. The end result of this dereliction of justice is those entrusted with protecting the public have willingly created an entrenched, untouchable, distributed, criminal class which spans across and leads all major industries in America.

As I tweeted earlier today:

If we don’t get a grip on this now and begin to marshal our resources against the most dangerous criminals in America — those from the highest echelons of U.S. society — the country will continue to unravel and in an increasingly dangerous and chaotic fashion.

The systems of the world, who or what sets them up? Who controls them?

Matthew 4:8,9  "Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me." 

If he didn't have the control and authority he would not have offered them.

Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

If you think this is a fight against bankers, politicians and George Soros you are punching at the air.

It’s pretty self explanatory,
On another note
If I was the devil and was not all knowing and could not be in every place at all times I would set up a system where I could monitor every communication of as many people as I could in order to front run events to manipulate to my liking
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not but for to kill, steal and destroy”

Based on their interpretation of several parts of the Bible, especially Revelations, many Christians believe the current world is ruled entirely by the Devil, with minimal intervention by God. These Christians believe a final battle between the forces of God and the Devil is approaching, during which battle the Devil will appear to win for a while, with terrible consequences for people on the Earth (the Tribulation.) These Christians believe many powerful people on Earth will side with the Devil. After this, Jesus will return and vanquish the Devil, then turn to judge the people of the Earth.

Some Christians believe the final struggle is already underway, and most rulers of the Earth have already sided with the Devil. Others think the final struggle is yet to come. Both groups believe things will get very much worse than they are now.

Shiite Muslims have a similar belief in an approaching end of the world in a battle between the forces of good and evil, triggered by the reappearance of the 11th Mahdi, the final legitimate spiritual descendant of the Prophet Mohammed. Shiites believe the proper line of religious succession was through Mohammed's nephew, whom they believe Mohammed designated as his successor, but who was murdered. Sunnis do not believe this. The 11th and last legitimate Mahdi went into hiding near the Golden Mosque in Iraq, in which shrine the 9th and 10th Mahdis are buried. We fought to protect this shrine, but was still destroyed in the war. We of course were blamed for this. Official proclamations from the Shiite rulers of Iran make it appear their official policy is that the end is near. They give the appearance of believing a war with the US is part of this good-vs-evil fight, and the US are not on the side of the Last Mahdi.

It often seems to some people that the Christians and Muslims who anticipate these final battles relish the potential harm and destruction that they believe is approaching. There are a lot of Christian end-of-timers here on ZH, but I haven't noticed any Shiite Muslim end-of-timers here.

I don't think muzzies would like us much here.

Nor the ziocons.

I am a Christian libertarian and am open to the idea that these are the end times, but the Bible also says nobody will ever see it coming... but the similarities to Revelations are both striking and unsettling... Either way, a massive clash of civilizations is coming.

Being a libertarian (really, an ancap) I am not a pacifist but also not a fan of pointless self-destructive behavior (war). Islam is a disgusting evil but I'm not going to go out and attack its idiotic believers (they worship a murdering rapist). Fuck with me and you are fucked, however. I could see myself having to defend my neighborhood from Antifa and Muslim trash, but we are not there yet.

I honestly think the NWO wants a huge civil war between the eternally united libtards and the congenitally divided right because that's what will "require" a restructuring of the constitution and the international order as a whole... I think their plan was Trump = civil war, and Hillary = WW3 the whole time. Win-win for them but I don't think they can take down the American people...

My friend from Mexico (cool dude) asked me why guns are such a cultural icon in America, why we (some of us) are so strictly in favor of gun freedom... I explained that it's because we are the last redoubt. America is the last place on earth that could fight back against a one-world-government scenario.
I think he got a little more respect for gun culture after that.

I'm a Christian and I believe God will have His day. When that is, is anyone's guess. Ive read Revelations but I'll be danged of I can make heads or tails of it. Plus, if you live a good life in the sight of God, it doesn't matter at all to you when the end comes. The way I figure it, the shit show of human hisory will simply  go on until the plug gets pulled. I wonder if humanity has a living will.

I do fervently hope at The End God plays "Sorrow" by Pink Floyd, the live version on Pulse, and just cranks it up to ear bleeding volume. That is some real wrath of God lead work by Gilmour. It really needs to be the soundtrack for the Second Coming. God told me so. No really! :)

It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.

Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.

16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.

17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

23 A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.

26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

The screen actors and actresses never remain silent on any subject.  How is it that they have nothing to say about this Weinstein?  If a 100,000 USD is enough to buy their silence on this subject, I argue that the U.S. citizens should pay everyone of these people in Hollywood 100,000 USD to remain silent on every subject.

The only good thing is people no longer think I'm crazy for knowing there has always been 2 systems. I learned the truth when my townhouse was stolen from me. People are waking up to reality. Once again conspiracy theory becomes FACT. We need lots and lots more lone wolves to start taking care of the predators.

I refuse to accept that life on earth has to be some kind of hellish slavery under perpetual tyranny.

If you study history there have been many cycles and one people or nation seemed to rise as they conqured others and then America came along and something with so much promise went down the same exact back alleys every other empire ever did.

The concept of individual liberty though, that is I believe straight from God.  

I don't believe in the idea that the earth is Satan's dominion although it would certainly appear that way I think that's yet another lie.

Whatever is done here on earth by man is mankind's fault, blaming the devil is just a cowards way out.

Evil resides in the hearts and minds of mankind and only there.  It is a direct result of rewarding the desire to dominate over the tendancy to help others that causes all this.

There are many ways people dominate and often times people who virtue signal outwardly are THE loudest worst offenders trying to cloak themselves with the shield of false virtue.

I have an extreme fondness for the gritty realists who might look tough on the outside but on the inside only want to help.  I hope God does too and I think he does.

go deeper...think of how we came to be.  Was it some organism that came to life all the sudden?  If so, then we have what we have, and nothing will ever change, nothing to hope for etc...I also wonder why those running most of the world worship satan?   I have no clue how atheists get by except for themselves being cowards...So, I am just giving you another point of view, altho I except your point of view also..I cannot say for sure there is a creator and another entity that rebeled against the creator, but one thing that I do know, is we all get to decide for ourselves...I do not think you are a coward, i only mentioned it because you dont know any more than i know whether there is an entity that created in loive and truth and another entity that focused on lies and death...The main problem is the churches, they were supposed to be the leaders of this country but they all sold out to the 501c3...

p.s.  while driving today, I thought of a silly thing, allow me to share please...Many religions, such as musloim, have ONE god...I have 3, the father, son and holy spirit...my three of a kind beats your one card lol...sorry, it made me snicker a bit :-)

Christians don't believe in 3 gods.

I look at it this way, if God created the universe, He created quantum mechanics. If God can, via quantum mechanics,  make a single particle that can be in more than one place at one time, why can't He do the same? Viola! As Jesus said, "With God, all things are possible." Get over it. And remember, ignoring God is kinda like trying to ignore the IRS and hoping they won't notice.

I like your comment, but I don't believe it takes a God.

It takes Humility.

That comes from emotional intelligence.

No matter...

We've been through this before.

That's how Rule of Law came about.

Now it is up to the People, again, to protect Rule of Law.

As first priority... and as, apparently, inconvenient that it is...

conraddobler's picture

It DOES take a God or at least a creator, something higher than mankind or at the very least respect for the rules that govern our existence, these being the rules of our "game"

If you go down the no God, no creator, just pure random chance road then you are ceeding ultimate authority to mankind again which is essentially the pit we are all warping into right now.

The key isn't whatever your idea of God is, it's that you have ONE.

Without that what you're essentially saying is survival of the fittest rules all and if you say that then there are no rules in reality other than what you can get away with and isn't that kind of thinking pretty much what we're dealing with right now?

How's that working out so far?

HANGEMHIGHER's picture

I agree, The key isn't whatever your idea of God is, it's that you have ONE

Excellent point. I wish everyone understood that. If there were no God/Creator to establish moral behavior, "good" behavior, then such determinations are relegated solely to the human opinion, which.  always devolves into the opinion of the group with the most and biggest weapons. And usually both sides are in the wrong. Of course this happens in any case as humans will typically will justify killing in the name of their particular creator. That is why I'm Christian. When Christ says that He gives us a new commandment, that we must love another, it doesn't give you any wiggle room to slay someone because they disagree with you assuming you really do believe he is God. Now we all know there have been a zillion Christians willing to slay others for God and for worldly reasons, but they are not following the commandment. I do believe you can kill in self defense if all reasonable options have been completely exhausted. If Christ were not God, were back to the biggest and best weapons reallity. I would argue that there are very logical reasons to believe Christ is God, yes logical, but I'm not going off on that tirade. 

DjangoCat's picture

That is exactly how things are working out now, so where is God?  

To my mind, the problem is that the evil ones are simply psychopaths, people with no empathy and no conscience.  They have the advantage over us normal people because they will do anything to gain dominion over us and steal our stuff.

They are the few and we are the many, but we must recognise the nature of the enemy within.  Absolute ruthlessness is required to root them out. 

Forget about fairness and the rule of law.  Simply take them out one at a time.

The US Justice system is a tool to control the sheeple and empower their owners.   Federal judges are selected with their State's Senators permission.  Schumer controls all the judges involved in Wall Street corruption in the "Southern District of NY (Manhattan) and in the Eastern District of NY (international maladroits, whose criminal deeds are deemed passing through JFK airport).   Only a fool believes judges are not tools of Senate financiers.

The first comment that comes to mind when the author says "no one in Washington seems to understand why Americans think different rules apply to Wall St".  I don't think this is true at all.  I think Washington knows full well Wall St is constantly let off the hook, and why.  Wall St is one of their biggest donors.  And if the wealthy oligarchs who own the banks don't like you, you're fucking out.  The banks have better attorneys than anyone else.  And most of the government regulators they "negotiate" with are in the revolving door, ready to sell their soul for a lucrative job when they quit the government.  They own the goddamn judges in the federal courts too.  I'm sure these bankers think we should feel thankful for them agreeing to pay a fine.

911 was a cancerous wound to USA.  The people that ran that show have never been brought to justice.  Many of them are still running shit behind the scenes still.  The bullshit that took place on Fraud Street in 2008 and after pales in comparison to 911.  USA, in my opinion will never ever recover until the cancerous tumor of 911 is excised and terminated once and for all.  I'm all for public firing squads, gut shot.  After that we can arrest the thieves that stole from the US taxpayers in 2008 and after.  Clawback.  Life in prison, no parole from the top down.

It happened long, long before that. Have we forgotten the stories of America's robber barons? They multiplied, hid, to rise up again into this current massive cesspool of scum. Washington made it easy for all of them and still does. Proof. Soros, Awans, Clintons, Obama, Holder,Lynch, Schumer, Shiff -- factually all of them and many more up to the Rothschilds, the baddest ass criminal manipulators in all human history.

But what is the real answer here? Bitcoin and the blockchain. Its intended purpose is bypassing all these criminals and their scams to build a future for mankind without a one of them. Those seeds have been sown.

JASON CHAFFETZ asked Jeff Session to prosecute Hillary for all of the apparenty crimes and Session refused, saying "No".

 

Trump could fire Session or move him to another position, but he doesn't. 

So, like Comey, Sessions will not let justice take its course. However, the difference is Sessions still has his job, and like Obama, Trump will not fire his AG for not doing the job.  

We didn't change anything in the last election, though we tried, and I think we all realize it at this point. I now hear everyone complaining about why Trump doesn't do this or that? Why is Trump sitting on his hands?  Although it is a good question, it is also a hypocritical question, because the same must be asked of ourselves. Why are we all sitting on our hands?

Expecting the system to indite itself is as foolish as expecting a coward to commit suicide. Perhaps we are the true cowards who are unable to do justice. Where does the buck really stop? Who is really asleep on the job? In light of the fact they are now doing it all out in the open, one must see that they don't fear us anymore? Until they do fear us once again, our asses belong to them. They simply don't care what everyone thinks because they rightly believe they can get away with it without serious and IMMEDIATE repercussion. 

We tend to forget, or we do not take seriously, we are their employers and are responsible for what they do. It is really all our fault. Until we begin to understand and face this fact we are complicit in the crimes.

On a little travel computer, my DNS stopped functioning for all sites except Google.  How wierd is that.  I had to go in and hard code a safe DNS to get back online.  Marketwatch bounced me after I made a comment suggesting the Saudi and Israel might have more influence on US elections than Russia.  I have managed to get back to reading the news there by deleting my cookies, but still cannot comment.

Why would they go after an old fart like me.  I don't even own a gun.
