A Tale of Two Criminals

The stinking swamp of corrupt moonbattery the Obama Regime has made of the Justice Department can be summed up by its treatment of two criminals — Jon Corzine and Nancy Black.

Which would you imagine might attract more aggressive enforcement from the Justice Department: the theft of $1.2 billion from supposedly segregated customer brokerage funds, or lying about an alleged incident of whistling to attract the attention of a whale so that whale watchers could get a better peep? If you said the latter, then you appreciate the extent to which federal law enforcement priorities have run off the rails.

We know for a fact that enormous sums of money legally off limits have disappeared into the maw of disgraced Senator Jon Corzine’s gambling counterparties, all of whom seem to have taken the oath of omerta. We know that Corzine personally asked employees at MF Global, the financial firm he headed until recently, to transfer the funds. We know that his underlings balked at signing false statements attesting the transfers to be legal. So how is it that the man ultimately responsible for this brazen theft and spectacular bankruptcy gets away with performing a perfunctory Sergeant Schultz “I know nothing” routine in front of his old Senate buddies, after which he is left free to walk out the door without handcuffs?

Meanwhile, marine biologist and whale watching ship captain Nancy Black faces 20 years in prison, not for “harassing” whales (which believe it or not is a crime), but because she has been charged with lying to Justice Department prosecutors investing allegations that some of her crew members whistled at a whale to keep it hanging around their boats. …

With all the securities regulations we now have on the books — from Sarbanes Oxley to Dodd Frank — and politicians incessantly bloviating about the importance of bringing Wall Street miscreants to justice, what are the rest of us supposed to think if the befuddled whale watcher gets hauled off to prison while the Willie Sutton of derivatives brokers hops in his limo and rides off into the sunset to collect his Senator’s pension?

Whatever we’re supposed to think, some are going to conclude that it’s time for our moonbat ruling class to be uprooted.

It’s all about being a member of the club.

    O-blubber…..constantly majoring on the minors…

    …when he’s not plotting to destroy the country and turn it into a 27th-world socialist backwater…

    And where are all those good journalists in the MSM rising up rightous anger over the magnitude of this corperate stealing? – the silence is deafening. An old song by the Eagles rings true: a man with a brief case can steal (and get away with it) more money than any man with a gun. Any one want to bet that a good chunk of that billion plus dollars are in the accounts of certain members of the jackass party. As for the rinos, they are getting a cut of the take or they even more spineless and ball-less than I had imagined. We are totally screwed.

    Check out the list that’s covered in addition to whales, don’t get caught doing any unauthorized looking at any of them in the wild! This is one area where you are guilty as accused and you can get out of it by paying a fine of their choice!

    Dolphins are depleted? Who knew. Hell, I can hardly get my sailboat out to the Gulf of Mexico without nearly running over a couple dozen of ’em. They come right up to the side of the boat, like they’re looking for a freakin’ handout. Maybe it’s some kind of “occupy the water” thing.

  5. Bill T says:

    Joe those would be of the domesticated variety so they’re not covered under said act.

    America has become the bizarro world Jerry Sienfeld warned us about. And what do the people do?

  7. F.D.R. in Hell says:

    Corzine may have eluded Lucifer on his way to the Rutgers Nappy Press Conference five years ago this week, but, in prison, there will be no escaping ~The Angel of the Abyss~.

  8. whotothewhat says:

    Elites control the world so this is why Corzine is allowed to pillage 1.2 billion. In the elites world whistling at a whale is close to a capitol offense. Soon know one will be allowed in the water to even see a whale or fish or even floating garbage.
