A Warning To The Washington DC Establishment
From The Market Ticker
Tonight the Republican Party rejoices at that which was just a month ago thought to be impossible: Senator Kennedy’s former seat in The Senate is now held by a Republican – a state that is so blue you may think the entire state is choking to death when you cross its border.
Tonight the Democratic Party is busy pointing fingers (I saw it on “mainstream TV”) over what went wrong, blaming everything from a sports faux pas to the President showing up and performing a negative campaign act by attempting to tie Coakley’s prospects to “the need to keep the agenda on track.”
Neither party should be doing any of this.
Let me point out that in the summer and fall of 2008 I sent a letter to the McCain campaign in which I outlined the facts for him on the ground at that time. It was and always is the economy stupid!
The McCain campaign ignored me, of course.
Tonight Senator-Elect Brown made what, if Senator McCain has not woken up from his slumber, will prove to be a critical error. He said:
“I’ll never forget the help of another man who took the time to meet with me months ago – who told me I could win, and gave me confidence for the fight. It was all so characteristic of a truly great and heroic American, and tonight I thank my new colleague, Senator John McCain.”
Really? Heroic eh?
So heroic that he turned a blind eye to the fraud that led us into this economic morass and not only refused to demand prosecution, clawbacks and justice during his campaign but has utterly refused to atone since?
Should Senator-elect Brown bring that attitude to Washington DC, unless Senator McCain has changed his tune (and I’ve yet to hear him sing differently) he will have made a critical error of judgment in regard to the message sent tonight.
Tonight the message that should be taken from Brown’s victory is not “President Obama sucks” or “The Democrats’ policies suck” or even “we don’t want the Democrat Health Bill.”
The message that should be taken from Brown’s victory is simple, succinct, and clear:
- Ramrodded policies are not going to be tolerated. It doesn’t matter if it’s The Fed doing it, President Obama doing it, or Congress doing it. PUT THE FACTS ON THE TABLE, DEBATE OPENLY, AND MAKE NO MORE CLOSED DOOR DEALS IRRESPECTIVE OF THE SUBJECT MATTER!
- President Obama said he was NOT an agent of the banksters and fraudsters on Wall and K Streets alike. HE LIED. Neither party has been willing to address this problem but it must be addressed right here and now. Those who committed fraud during the bubble years, and this includes most particularly those on Wall Street, must be held to account. Each and every firm on Wall Street must be subjected to a full forensic audit with all indications of criminal wrong-doing turned over to a Grand Jury – NO EXCEPTIONS.
- Start listening to The American People. NOW. America will NOT tolerate a ramrodded health care bill. America will NOT tolerate being ripped off with 30% credit card rates while banksters rake in billions in bonuses – “earned” through phony accounting and government handouts. America will NOT tolerate being ignored when they tell Congress by 100:1 margins (or more) to NOT PASS TARP. America will NOT tolerate so-called “trading partners” who exploit effective slave labor conditions and then rob our nation’s secrets and her corporations blind, then sell us poison toys and costume jewelry. And America will NOT tolerate any more of the BS from Washington, Wall Street and foreign nations that are in Congress’ pocket – and that got us into this mess. WE DEMAND JUSTICE NOW.
- Want to lose your job Senators? VOTE TO RECONFIRM BERNANKE AND YOU’RE FIRED.
STOP THE LOOTING (and spending) AND START PROSECUTING RIGHT DAMN NOW!
Politicians cannot take from this win that either party is “safe” or “has favor” with The American People.
This win was about one thing above all others:
WE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE DUPLICITY, LIES AND CON JOBS, AND IF YOU DO NOT LISTEN TO US AND STOP IT – BOTH IN WASHINGTON DC AND ON WALL STREET WE WILL THROW YOU OUT ON YOUR ASS.
DO YOU HEAR US NOW WASHINGTON?
IF YOU DO NOT WE ARE COMING FOR YOU ON NOVEMBER 2nd 2010 – THAT’S A PROMISE.
