The Chamber of Corruption - 4

"Joshua Rocks" - oil on canvas
In The Chamber of Corruption series that began about a year ago, Dredd Blog pointed out how rancid a once helpful organization had/has become.

Banker Jekyll Will Hyde Your Money, which began about a year and a half ago, is another series where we look into the psychosis of the plunder barons who are too big to jail.

As it turns out, these two ghoulish entities have now been joined together by the national amygdala.

Fusion of shadows of the past into a rock of impotent incompetence is depicted by blogger Randy's painting shown in this post.

The new entity, Jekyll-Hyde, is now festering beyond the pale into an attack dog enterprise dedicated to destroying the last vestiges of truth telling efforts, efforts we have traditionally called "journalism" or "the free press".

Their modus operandi is to use slander in order to deceive the public with an orgasm of putrid propaganda practices which once upon a time would have made even them blush in shame.

The downward spiral we spoke of yesterday as a category five tornado of demise is represented full on by this alegory, this microcosm, this corrupt model, which all spawns from the DNA of MOMCOM.

This vortex of intellectual bankruptcy in the U.S.A. is now being, and will continue to be, exposed for what it is.

The story was broken by a hack into the emails of these establishment mobsters by Anonymous, as Glenn Greenwald explains:
As I noted on Friday, the parties implicated in the smear campaigns aimed at WikiLeaks supporters and Chamber of Commerce critics have attempted to heap all the blame on HBGary Federal ("HBGary") and its CEO, Aaron Barr. Both Bank of America and the Chamber -- the intended clients -- vehemently deny any involvement in these schemes and have harshly denounced them. The other two Internet security firms whose logos appeared on the proposals -- Palantir Technologies and Berico Technologies -- both issued statements terminating their relationship with HBGary and insisting that they had nothing to do with these plots. Only Hunton & Williams and its partner, John Woods -- the central cogs soliciting these proposals -- have steadfastly refused to comment.
(Smearly Leeks). The foreign government driven ideology of King Mohammed impels The Chamber of Corruption to attack even the families of journalists who dare to expose their corruption.

It is the kinky kingly thang to do these daze.

The next post in this series is here, the previous post in this series is here.


  1. The painting ("Joshua Rocks") was done in Joshua Tree National Park one fine day.

    Twenty years ago who would have envisioned a civic servant like the Chamber turning into a mob organization?

    Not many, if any.

  2. Russ Feingold is trying to undo what the Five Supremes did in Citizens United, but the success of that effort does not look promising, seeing as how the W direction is the only direction anymore.

  3. Good job Randy. I spent 3 years out at Edwards AFB in the Antelope Valley, so I'm familiar with Joshua Tree. Very beautiful area when the wind isn't howling.

    Interesting item today:

    Madoff: Banks 'had to know' about scheme

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Convicted Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff, in a jailhouse interview published Wednesday, said banks and hedge funds were "complicit" in his multi-billion dollar fraud.

    "They had to know," Madoff told New York Times reporter Diana B. Henriques, who is working on a book about the case. "But the attitude was sort of, 'If you're doing something wrong, we don't want to know.' "

    I agree completely. Madoff became the convenient fall-guy for the entire financial community, which was essentially running a more sophisticated version of the same thing. I'm sure if Madoff had come in out of the cold he would have been embraced, albeit at the expense of a huge cut of the profits.

    Madoff's prosecution served a very valuable purpose. He became the lightning rod for public outrage over the whole mess and fostered the illusion that it was all perpetrated by a handful of rogue actors who have all been effectively dealt with, never to plague us again.

    The reality - that the abuses were systemic, that the main actors not only were not punished, but were actually rewarded, and that everything is firmly in place for a repeat performance on an even grander scale - is just so much harder to swallow. It's hard to imagine that the next one won't be the last for this incarnation of the economy, but who knows. The masters of global finance have thus far proved to be amazingly adept at draining blood from a corpse.

  4. The lawyers hired by COC and BOA in Grenwald's case, the subject of this post, shows how the judicial system is becoming corrupt by these kinds of mental problems posing as official energies.

    The Ivins 9/11 anthrax case, which Dredd Blog criticized as fanciful, now is known to have been quite fanciful.

    If only they could understand how fanciful the rest of the 9/11 attack official stories are.

    The daze of the Curveball sums it up nicely.

  5. Signs that American sheeple have been safely lured to sleep once again (the better to be slaughtered in due course).

    Thirty one year old slugger Albert Pojols' will he/won't he saga with the St. Louis (baseball) Cardinals over whether the club will meet his demands for a 10 year, $300M contract extension.

    And of course the looming NFL CBA expiration in March, where the main points of contention are revenue splits (who would have guessed?) and extra regular season games (to generate more revenues). Negotiations have been suspended and many view a season affecting/ending lockout inevitable.

    Oh what will we do?

  6. correction to my last comment above: "The Ivins 9/11 anthrax case, which Dredd Blog criticized as fanciful,"

  7. Bernie Madoff reveals something about the MOMCOM mindset:

    "In many ways, however, Mr. Madoff seemed unchanged. He spoke with great intensity and fluency about his dealings with various banks and hedge funds, pointing to their “willful blindness” and their failure to examine discrepancies between his regulatory filings and other information available to them.

    “They had to know,” Mr. Madoff said. “But the attitude was sort of, ‘If you’re doing something wrong, we don’t want to know.’ ”
    " (NY TIMES article).

    That evidently guides "the W direction" as Dredd calls it.
