On March 6th, Robert Stanford was convicted in a Houston federal court on 13 out of 14 counts of fraud.
The jury decision was delivered three years after Stanford defrauded 30,000 investors in 113 countries in a Ponzi scheme involving $7 billion in fraudulent high-interest certificates at the Stanford International Bank located in Antigua.
The corporate media has accurately reported Stanford's use of the fraudulently obtained money (e.g., purchasing mansions, jets, yachts, million dollar condominiums). However, the corporate controlled media conspicuously failed to report that much of the stolen money went to bribing corrupt members of congress on both sides of the aisle as well as their parent political parties. The illegally obtained money was given to the likes of Barack Obama, William Nelson, John McCain, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
The mainstream media also failed to mention that both the Republican and Democratic political parties accepted this fraudulently obtained money as well. The court-appointed receiver tasked with returning the money to Stanford investors obtained a federal court order last June against five Democratic and Republican campaigns. Yet, despite the court order, the leadership of both parties has still not returned the money! The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee received nearly a million dollars. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has accepted almost a quarter of a million dollars of Stanford's ill-gotten gains. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have received almost $200,000 of the stolen money. The Republican National Committee $130,000, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has accepted $83,345.” These facts indict the entire Democratic and Republican apparatus and they are unquestionably participants in a criminal enterprise system which is benefitting from the theft of investor monies in the same fashion as did ex-New Jersey Governor and Goldman Sachs executive, John Corzine, when he stole tens of millions of dollars from MF Global investors.
Stanford used his influence, using the stolen money of his investors, to block two pieces of legislation which would have made it easier to prosecute this crook with millions of dollars on political campaigns donations. The two biggest recipients of the "donations" designed to stop this bill were Senator Bill Nelson (D) and John McCain (R). Other important Democrats on the Senate Banking Committee got checks from Stanford and the reform bill never got out of the Senate.
In the most brazen move in this litany of criminal enterprise actions, both the Republican and Democratic campaign committees actually possess the nerve to appeal the lower court decision to return the money to a higher federal court instead of returning the stolen investor's money to the rightful owners.
Anyone who votes democratic or republican in subsequent elections gets the government that they deserve. The political whores from both parties have sold out the American people and now they are not even trying to hide their organized criminal activities. Meanwhile, the bulk of the American people are still asleep at the wheel.
To date, the Stanford victims have managed to reclaim about $150,000 from elected officials who accepted this stolen money. However, almost two million dollars of political donations are still missing. President Obama took his money and donated it to charity. Someone should explain to Obama that he does not have the legal authority to dispense stolen money, obtained by fraud, to anyone but to the victims. But when has Obama recently followed the law? Obama, McCain, and Reid more closely resemble the Sopranos than public officials who have sworn to uphold the U.S Constitution.
