Schooling The Apparatchiks For The Kleptocrats (December 7, 2015)
. . .
J “Harvard and Yale are in business to make a profit and provide the foot soldiers to protect those making a profit. Columbia has stepped up its game. Both Eric Holder and Lonny Breuer each bagged a pair of degrees from Columbia and dutifully served Wall Street while on the public pay roll. First Covington & Burling, then time in the Department of Justice (?), and then back to C & B to protect the Owners. They did their time in government, but they did not encourage the criminal banksters to do their time in government custody.”
K “I have said for some time that Morningside Heights is in business to protect its friends down the road in Manhattan. Once Wall Street took a controlling stake in O’Bama, Inc., it was game over. The game was over on or before January 20, 2009, yet it did not make that night’s sports highlights.”
J “The grand irony is that rather than quash any and all prosecutions of Wall Street fraud, Holder and Breuer could have aided and abetted their past and future colleagues by allowing them to get rich quashing government subpoenas.”
K “And then toss in Glenn Hubbard, a deceptive and dishonest errand boy for the banks and corporations. Where is he proselytizing and propagandizing?”
. . .
K “On the other hand, Columbia also provides a haven for Joseph Stiglitz and James Hansen.”
J “And William Kunstler did not toil and moil for C & B.”
