This is insane. New head of Securities and Exchange Commission? A Big Time Defense Attorney—For the Big Banks!

President Obama Nominates Mary Jo White For Chairwoman Of The SEC

“A sick joke on all of us.”

This is where the true progressives and the libertarians and conservatives who care about crony capitalism can come together. The nomination of Mary Jo White for SEC chairwoman.

This is complete contempt for the American people. If there is any doubt, at all, about who’s side when it comes down to it this administration is on, look no further than this prospective appointment.

And don’t forget, our attorney general, Eric Holder was also a former defense attorney for the big banks.

I wonder why these guys keep getting off scott free? Heck, more than that, how they keep amassing tens of millions of dollars with each bonus season?

Why am I not surprised?  Obama was the big banks candidate in 2008 and still received significant donations from them even though Romney received more in 2012.

Greetings We are covering Global and Western Corruption from both the inside and outside. As a former Army Intel and Employee of the Federal Reserve Bank and 4 others (U.S. & E.U.)in an IT Security (With DIRECT access to much of what you are hearing about) capacity I had some extremely eye opening and direct personal FIRST HAND experiences (No second hand conjecture here). We have some great insight into this Global Economic Corruption that is finally being exposed... KEEP THE HEAT ON THEM!  Follow us please for more info like this that all ties together in one location. Please contribute knowledge as well as strategy as we are the FEW willing to stand up and end corruption. We have been divided and conquered long enough. Time to no longer be a Debt slave to this current corrupt financial system. Let US all stand together and ignore the plots to divide us further.

I am against cronyism, but there is no such thing as "crony capitalism." True laissez faire capitalism means the government stays out of the business of business which does not allow for cronyism.

THAT NATIONAL Debt,, is not YOUR NATIONS Debt. It is the Debt created by a PRIVATE CORPORATION known as the United States in Congress ASSEMBLED. That debt is NOT YOUR DEBT, it IS a Debt that SPECIAL FAMILIES owe, like the Bush, Clinton, Obama/Soetoro, Carnegie, Ford, Redshield, Rockefeller, etc., as it is THEYthat own the Federal Reserve Bank, and Federal Reserve Notes, then it is THEY that need to pay that debt. This entire system is THEIR system and we are in the wrong for being in it, we need to get out of THEIR SYSTEM.
