During two days of recent congressional hearings into how as much as $1.2 billion disappeared from MF Global customer accounts, the chief operating officer of the imploding investment firm responded again and again that he did not know.
Yet as the House and Senate interrogated Bradley I. Abelow and other top executives at MF Global Holdings Ltd., lawmakers did not mention Mr. Abelow’s role as a financial adviser for the Environmental Protection Agency, which as of Tuesday listed him as the chairman of its financial advisory board.
Even as he finds himself the public face of a bankruptcy and admitted to lawmakers that he had no idea how client funds disappeared, Congress and the administration have voiced no public concern about Mr. Abelow’s role advising the $8.6 billion government agency on its finances.
US Attorney General Eric Holder is feeling the heat over Fast & Furious. His department oversaw a vast gunrunning operation that sent thousands of firearms to Mexican drug cartels. Two members of Americans law enforcement have been murdered with these guns. The Mexican government estimates that over two hundred Mexican citizens, including many law enforcement officers, have been murdered with these weapons.
The operation violated US law, Mexican law, and international treaties between the US and Mexico.
The Wall Street Journal even accused the DOJ of facilitating the sale of fragmentation grenades to Mexican drug cartels. They base they claim on Internet DOJ documents that have been released.
Internal memos show that Fast & Furious was a “false flag” operation to justify more gun control measures in the United States.
Eric Holder gave a statement to Congress under oath claiming that he had only learned about the operation “a few weeks ago.” Internal DOJ documents prove that he had known about the operation for at least ten months. Shortly after, Barack Obama admitting knowing about the operation for a longer period of time than what Holder had admitted too.
Sixty US House members are calling for Eric Holder’s resignation. Rep. Ron Paul called for his arrest and prosecution. He says the operation was “criminal,” and a “false flag.”
However, Eric Holder characterized his critics as white racists. He said the scandal has been blown out proportion by white people who are only attacking him because he is “African-American.”

On December 3, 1847, Frederick Douglass responded to a speech given by Henry Clay to the American Colonization Society. The goal of the ACS was to have all blacks, free as well as slaves, removed from the United States and sent to Africa.
During his speech Clay, who owned slaves himself, claimed it was God’s will for blacks to be enslaved.
Douglass published his response in “The North Star.” During his response Douglass said, “You charge, upon God, the responsibility of your own crimes and seek solace from the pangs of a guilty conscience. I remind you, sir, that you are in the Winter of your life. You must soon leave this world and appear before God to render account of your stewardship. You are, at this moment, the robber of nearly fifty human beings and compel them to live without liberty and in ignorance. …God will hold you guilty in the great day of your account–if you die with the blood of slaves clinging to your garments.”
A Chinese court has handed down a 10-year jail sentence to Chen Xi, the second dissident in four days to be convicted of inciting subversion through online essays.
Another democracy campaigner, Chen Wei, was sentenced to nine years on 23 December. The two men are not related.
It is one of the heaviest sentences for inciting subversion since the Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo was jailed for 11 years on Christmas Day 2009.
Arrests and detentions have gathered pace this year as the Communist party reacted to online calls for protests like those that have toppled dictators across the Middle East. The calls, however, have drawn little response and no large-scale protests have taken place in China.
Out Friday 13 2012 – I cannot wait – Many FDF Members in this film – I am hoping to get a screening here in NY 🙂
The Republican party has been losing the media and race propaganda war for a long time. Republicans have forgotten their history and walk around with their heads hung in shame with this false sense of white guilt, because of that, they have lost the ability to engage in a real conversation even on a local level.
One of the things that we at the FDF are able to do is take the race card off of the table so we can have a fair political dialog about conservatism. It is critical that we engage and educate people about, self-rule, constitutionally limited government, and socialism, which is not the natural state of man. We must re-think how we approach the issues that face the inner city and other neighborhoods that this type of socialistic thought infected. We should not resign ourselves to the lie that there is no hope.
Because of the elitist’s and the media’s love affair with socialism, which creates a permanent underclass of people, we see people re-writing history including the history of the political parties. We come in and set the record straight by teaching the real history of the Republican and Democrat parties.
We know how to talk to people and we have skin thick enough to wait out the anger we see when truth is promoted. Truth cannot be refuted only covered up.
