Maybe some people believe  that Corzine is an uber douche that deserves to burn like a sea of tires?

FEDbuster's picture

I thought that the captain is supposed to go down with the ship?  Strip Corzine of all his wealth, then toss him in jail for life + 200 years.

Prison awaits.  The money is gone forever, stolen, and stashed.

You got away with it in this world Jon.  Good luck in the next one.

Do not be surprised if he gets away with this.  But if he does go to jail, our ¨hail fellow well met¨ President will spring him just after next November´s election.  Even in jail, he will get easy time, big time bundler for Obama and economic advisor to VP Biden and all.  Nor will he have to forfeit (much anyway) of his estimated $300,000,000 fortune.  That alone would (he he) make good 50% of MF Global´s customers´ money.

Got popcorn?  Got gold?

Corzine will not spend 60 seconds in jail.


He knows where all the skeletons are buried, including Obama's.

Duffy better stay away from hot tubs and small passenger planes from now on.

Corzine has to go to jail. If he doesn't the entire futures market loses all confidence, and the CME doesn't get to enable JPM to manipulate silver any longer. He'll be playing Wii and eating Hot Pockets until the pardon anyway. They only need enough time to buy up the rest of the phyz.

Gold bugs ain't trading - everyone else is gambling with their emotions over star dust.

I do agree with the seagulls though, it's shiny.

After watching the video,  I'd say those sentences looked pretty damn 'scripted'.   The question isn't just "why"... it's "by whom?"



Michael's picture

Jon Corzine should make a statement to the press, he's not planning to commit suicide and would never commit suicide.

Otherwise, he may wind up shooting himself twice in the head with his own shotgun.

You know those meat grinders with the hand crank on them? You put the meat in the top and turn a crank, and a screw grinds and chews the meat, and spits it out the end. OK- picture the meat grinder with the ground meat dripping out the end, an arm coming out of the top of the grinder, with the hand on the handle. A couple of cops standing around looking at it, and one of them says-"His name was Duffy- damnest case of suicide I ever saw!!"

Bwahaha WAGFDSMB's picture

Mere hearsay, "A CME auditor also participated in a phone call with senior MF Global employees wherein one employee indicated that Mr. Corzine knew about the loans that had been made from the customer segregated accounts."  It's that "one employee" who needs to watch his back.

Zero Govt's picture

i wouldn't secure the one employee... i'd have a heavy armed 24 hour guard around the phone tape of the conversation

In this day and age, the DOJ will murder the witness.

After all, these are the same fookin' crooks that armed Mexican drug cartels to murder American agents in the field.

Feel safer about your position Mr/Mrs Special Agent?

"Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity"

How do like taking orders from people that wipe their asses with the American Flag each and every day?

I swear to G_d.

Everyday is more outrageous than the last.

I am sure its part of a larger program to demoralize everyone - instill hopelessness in our foundations of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Old fashioned?

The Foundation of the Human Spirit. 

Never forget it and teach to your kids even in our darkest days ahead.

Good luck to everyone.

There is no jail without a sentencing.

There is no sentencing without a conviction.

There is no conviction without a trial.

There is no trial without an indictment.

There is no indictment without a complaint.

There is no complaint without a prosecutor.

There is no prosecutor without political will.

There is no political will.

'Duffy better stay away from hot tubs and small passenger planes from now on.'

Also, include busy interesections, restaurants, and any other public places that might have many, many bystanders with cameras. After all, 'they' wouldn't want to waste offing him if no one sees what happens to squealers. Still, one can still dream Corzine will be put away, right?

merizobeach's picture

Are we taking for granted that any Congresspeople were listening?  Or even if they were paying attention, that they could comprehend the moment as it happened?  Something makes me suspect there may not be much piercing insight going on in some of those skulls.

Dont believe for a minute that the CME has no teeth or bite------ for anyone interested follow the board of directors.... corzine/cronies pulled a fast stash grab---it is not really about segregated account theft but the 2 BLACK EYES he gave the CME. Confidence in the CME and most, if not all markets has been compromised. Someone just pissed on moms christmas and she is pissed.

CME coverage for default.

We maintain a 364-day fully secured, committed line of credit with a consortium of domestic and international banks to be used in certain situations by our clearing house. We may use the proceeds to provide temporary liquidity in the unlikely event of a clearing firm default, in the event of a liquidity constraint or default by a depositary (custodian for our collateral), or in the event of a temporary disruption with the domestic payments system that would delay payment of settlement variation between us and our clearing firms. Clearing firm guaranty fund contributions received in the form of U.S. Treasury securities, Government agency securities or money market mutual fund as well as the performance bond assets of a defaulting firm can be used to collateralize the facility. The line of credit provides for borrowings of up to $1.0 billion. At June 30, 2011, guaranty fund collateral available was $3.3 billion. We have the option to request an increase in the line from $1.0 billion to $2.0 billion. In addition to the 364-day fully secured, committed line of credit, we also have the option to use the new $1.0 billion multi-currency revolving senior credit facility to provide liquidity for our clearing house in the unlikely event of default.

Looks like the word unlikely should read WHEN.

Convictions God Damn It!  We Want Convictions!!!

Corzine is just the beginning!  We want these douchebags in jail!

Fred Hayek's picture

Sure, but I'd pay a cable pay per view fee just to see the perp walk. $29.95 to see Pacquaio vs. Sanchez? No way. $59.95 to see Corzine dragged from his mansion in handcuffs and leg irons and made to shuffle out past the gated community's guard shack? Yes!

I only wish Howard Cosell was still around to be 10 feet away shouting into a microphone, "Down goes Corzine! Down goes Corzine! Down goes Corzine!" as ugly troll Corzine is dragged past the topiary.

!!! CRUCIFY HIM !!!  shouts the court of the headline-reading public !!! CRUCIFY HIM !!!

To whit, I'm guilty of it too -- and am now waiting for Ashton Kutchy to come out and yell punked.

the only reason i know who lindsey lohan is, is because i watch robot chicken

what's your excuse?

NewThor's picture

Mean Girls is a really good movie.

Not to be an asshole, but watching Robot Chicken rarely makes someone the arbiter of what parts of pop culture are "cool" to know.

Obama will let him go to jail. His secrets will stay there with him.

He will be the fall man for Obama to get re-elected on, and he will use him as an example that he is for the people or some shizzle!


Obama " See folks, I am doing good trying to stop the evil bankers from taking your money, I threw one in jail blah blah blah Bam."

spankfish's picture

You got the shizzle part right.

DormRoom's picture

two scenarios.


1)They cut a deal with Duffy, threw Corzine udner the bus, so he'll give someone up from JPMorgan.  Then the administration goes after someone there, and Obama is seen as nailing a wallstreet fat cat.

2)Someone @ JPMorgan wants Corzine to go to jail, where he'll quickly get shanked, and the secrets die with him.


JPMorgan wants to bury something.  Either trades, or Corzine.

JPMorgan is power.  Corzine is muscle.

LowProfile's picture


3) Duffy cut a deal.  Period.

DormRoom's picture

there could be more.


someone (sabra1) mentioned how Comex-JPMorgan could be hiding some info about a Nov. Silver  default that Corzine may have been privy to.


If so, they'd want him to shut up.  And they can only be sure one way--If the secret is buried with him.


There's something suspicious going on between MFGlobal-JPMorgan-Comex.  If only the US still had investigative journalists!

Widowmaker's picture

Don't ever show that Krasting mutherfucker this, but I'm waiting to hear what he has to say.

Maybe there are "others" that will follow with deep investigative reporting, knowing there is a growing audience.

Zero Govt's picture

Duffy cut a deal

...with Republicans

freedserf's picture

Duffy just threw the Justice Department a bone. Nice doggy!!

j0nx's picture

Puhleeze. The only thing the 'justice' department is interested in is state governors who have the gall to try and stop illegal immigration from overrunning their state resources. But then again, Americans allow this behavior to continue so it does. I don't feel sorry for any of us as we stand idly by and let these sociopaths ruin us.

TheFourthStooge-ing's picture

Thus spoke Zero Govt:

Duffy cut a deal

...with Republicans

There is only one party. Those who see two are still asleep.

The best part would be if he pulls a "Kenneth Lay": reportedly dying of a heart attack even before seeing what the inside of his cell looks like.

NewThor's picture

I was just about to post this.

I, too, predict a Ken Lay.

Fake heart attack. Then facial reconstructive surgery.

then hookers and margaritas in a far away land.

It's idiotic beliefs like this that help these people get away with it! You really think there is an afterlife? For this guy to be punished? No mate, convict him NOW or he's forever gotten away with it. Don't wish some imaginary god to do the punishing for you.
