Unclear on the concept cavalcade continues to corrupt citizens’ consciousness

by Patrick Devlin Ripped from the headlines, the news seems to suggest that rank and file democrats are following their standard bearer’s ‘style’ when it comes to solving some of the more pressing and complex problems that we face togehter as a nation. Its good to know that these followers have appreciated the efforts made by the Obama administration to “set the tone” as we sally forth together to solve these troubling and significant criminal and cultural problems.

enforcers settle, bankers sue

Barclay’s bank was sued today for fraud related to the sale of mortgage-backed security investments by the German bank HSH Nordbank, which is seeking over $46 million in damages. Nordbank said in a statement, “all of the mortgages weren’t assigned to trusts backing the securities as promised,” and as law requires. The bank’s attorneys said, “Without such assignment of the mortgages into the trusts, these so-called ‘mortgage-backed securities’ were not actually backed by mortgages.” Nordbank reviewed more than 2000 mortgages that were sold to them by Barclay’s packaged as secured investment vehicles and found that none of the mortgages were […]

Standing in stark and courageous contrast to lawmakers and police authorities elsewhere, the mayor of a small Spanish town has, in the face of the worldwide economic depression and mafia style drug criminality, decided to grow marijuana to in order to eliminate his town’s crushing bank debt and, at the same time, reduce the violent crime associated with drug prohibition. Spain has an enlightened approach to marijuana use that allows citizens to cultivate cannabis for medical and recreational use but which strictly prohibits the sale and distribution of marijuana.

The former president of Columbia harshly criticized the United States’ pursuit of the failed “drug war” in a recent interview on Spanish radio. Cesar Gaviria Trujillo, who was president of Columbia from 1990 to 1994 and subsequently served for ten years as the Secretary General of the Organization of American Sates, said that, while the US refuses to accept the reality that people use drugs, “We cannot be condemned to live in war because the Americans do not want to talk about it.” Trujillo was interviewed in advance of April’s Summit of the Americas, where Columbia’s current president has stipulated […]

survey shows NYPD coppers are fake crime stoppers

A survey performed by a group of public defenders in the Bronx revealed that in more than 40 percent of marijuana arrests that were reviewed, New York Police violated the rights of arrestees by forcing them to empty their pockets for no justifiable reason. The arrestees were subjected to constitutionally prohibited searches even after the Commissioner of the New York Police Department had issued a department wide memo prohibiting the widely utilized, but unlawful, practice known as “stop and frisk.” The “Bronx Defenders” working with the law firm of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, found that 44 percent of […]

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, who recently toured several South American countries told reporters of his concerns that today’s drug smugglers will possibly become tomorrow’s terrorist weapon suppliers. Dempsey, as quoted by the Washington Post, said, “It’s both the narcoterrorism activities that we see destabilizing our southern border (and) it’s that network itself that can be used for other purposes — and probably will be.” The Army general theorized, that because the drug smuggling network “can move anything (that will) go to the highest bidder…looking to the future, it’s certainly in our interest to do […]

‘lazy’ teachers clock more hours than their critics

Public employees, particularly teachers, have come under attack recently by politicians who don’t want to raise taxes on wealthy supporters who assert that these workers cost too much, work too little and are generally expendable. A study released recently by Scholastic and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation refutes this characterization suggesting that, when it comes to teachers, taxpayers are getting a bargain. The study, Primary Sources: America’s Teachers on the Teaching Profession, found that America’s teachers work longer hours than most workers, averaging 53 hours per week. Many teachers work even longer hours if they supervise extracurricular activities. Teachers […]
