Here’s are some brief portions of Jon Corzine’s testimony to a congressional committee yesterday about the MF Global collapse and the “missing” $1.2 billion. I’d expect nothing less than “I don’t know where the money is” coming from one of the economic gurus of the era of Hope & Change. It’s a miracle he was […]

Alternate MSNBC headline: Rick Perry Presidency Would Worsen Problem of Prison Overcrowding: ***** Perry’s talking about this — possible insider trading involving members of Congress from both parties — which isn’t as bad if members of Congress do it, because they write the laws. Nancy sure did a good job of draining that swamp, didn’t […]

Yesterday at Michelle M’s place I mentioned MF Global’s bankruptcy (the “MF” stands for “where’d all the MF’in money go?”). The company currently can’t account for $700 million and has admitted to using client money to cover company losses — a big no-no in the securities biz. If Obama was a Republican we might have […]

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ocky Mountain Way) has called on Attorney General Holder to resign over Fast & Furious (don’t hold your breath, Joe). Walsh sure seems to have a bead on what Fast & Furious was designed to accomplish: Walsh added that Holder needs to explain to the American people what role he had in […]

As you read this try and keep in mind that this is a guy who was honored by having a Navy ship named after him. Last week’s release of FBI documents finally put in writing what nobody had ever said on the record: The FBI suspected that former Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) and lobbyists close […]

To get quickly up to speed on the latest on Fast & Furious: –Earlier this year, Attorney General Eric Holder told a congressional committee he’d only “heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” –CBS has documents that show Holder was informed in 2010. –Holder now says he mis-understood […]

This Frank Drebin picture is going to get quite a workout in the coming months, so get used to it: We’ve known previously that “clean energy” projects involving Obama’s campaign donors and even Nancy Pelosi’s brother in law have received huge government loans to start companies that even many in the administration knew would do […]

Finish investigating the Solyndra debacle before continuing to shell out billions in taxpayer loans for “clean energy” startups? Eh, what for? The Energy Department announced Wednesday that is has finalized more than $1 billion in loan guarantees for two separate solar projects. The decision comes several weeks after Solyndra, a California-based solar manufacturer, received a […]

The latest New York Times story about Solyndra is fairly open and honest regarding the Obama administration’s complicity in the $500 million boondoggle, but the Times’ headline writer is still in “protect Obama” mode: The “U.S.” missed warning signs? The Bush administration ultimately voted against giving Solyndra a taxpayer-backed loan. To me it sounded like […]

Geez, give them one of the biggest platforms they’ve ever had to promote the importance of continuing to support “green jobs” and clean energy even in the face of a few completely innocent pitfalls, and they clam up: Solyndra LLC’s chief executive and chief financial officer will invoke their Fifth Amendment rights and decline to […]
