Follow the Money

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Lots of money to follow.

Let’s start with a lot of money people wish they could follow.

$1.2 Billion missing from MF Global.  You remember MF Global, run by Obama crony Jon Corzine, former democrat Senator and former Governor of New Jersey.  The guy who spent New Jersey dry and then ran up a huge debt to keep government spending at economy wreaking levels.  He left government service (i.e. he lost an election that his Republican opponent won in a landslide), and proceeded to continue his ways at MF Global.  The result was summed up nicely by Ann Barnhardt.

A firm, led by a crony of the Obama regime, stole all of the non-margined cash held by customers of his firm. Let’s not sugar-coat this or make this crime seem “complex” and “abstract” by drowning ourselves in six-dollar words and uber-technical jargon. Jon Corzine STOLE the customer cash at MF Global.

While we discussing friends of our Dear Leader, here a double header of money that deserves to be followed.

First, Solyndra, the company run by a big democrat donor, has it’s tax payer funded price tag bumped another $14.3 Million.

Second, Obama’s Half-Billion-Dollar Crony Drug Deal.  Yup, a big democrat donor gets a no-bid “sweetheart” government handout.  More of the tax payers funding our Dear Leader‘s campaign payoffs.

Moving the so-called “Occupy” criminal trespass groups, it is very clear that Orwell got it right, and some pigs are more equal than others.  No tents for the “leaders”, but $700 a night hotels.  Paid for by the rank and file who sleep in tents.  Yup, Lenin was right as well, when he called them “useful idiots.”

Let’s move to the world of bought and paid for “science”, and its poster child, James Hansen.

As Mr. Hinderaker points out, “…James Hansen, one of the two or three most prominent global warming alarmists on whose work the IPCC reports rest, “forgot” to report $1.6 million in outside income, as required by his government contracts. ”

Finally, let’s not forget the source of the ever so useful phrase, “Follow the Money.”
