Two really good articles in The Economist on the Overcriminalization of American Business. See here and here, and then my article on the New York Observer–the WAR ON WALL STREET–that explains why. The Department of Justice is extorting money from our corporations and redistributing the wealth to those of the President’s choosing.
In case you missed it, I broke the news on the destruction of Lois Lerner’s Blackberry–after Congress began its inquiry! I’ve been monitoring the case filed by Judicial Watch since I learned from a friend that Judge Emmet Sullivan, one of the heroes in Licensed to Lie, was presiding over the case. See articles here and here to fill you in on the developments there.
Then everyone picked it up. Among countless others, Greta put it on her WIRE and tweeted it, Steve Forbes tweeted it, and it became the FOX NEWS lead story, which quoted me and LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice.
To see my thoughts on the ridiculous indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry, read this article. Stay tuned at the New York Observer for fast-breaking developments in the IRS email scandal and Judge Sullivan works to get to the bottom of it.
And by the way, thanks to a tip from a reader this week, we learned that Matthew Friedrich, former Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice who is exposed in Licensed to Lie for his significant roles in the wrongful conviction of four Merrill Lynch executives and then United States Senator Ted Stevens, has left the Freshfields law firm without so much as a whisper and fallen off the grid.
C-Span continues to broadcast our CATO Institute presentation, the video is one of the most highly watched on their website, and the book continues to rank highly on Amazon.
Here’s the most recent reader review, by Peggy L. Jennings, on Amazon:
Wow, this is an amazing revelation of what our criminal justice system has come to! Very disturbing to think that we can count on fairness from our courts! The injustice of these cases blows me away. With all that is going on in our country I thought people would have a chance in a court of law but the lying and cheating done by the higher ups in our “Department of Justice” is both disappointing and disturbing. Not only are they “Licensed to Lie” but then they are promoted to positions of importance where they can continue to corrupt our justice system. I am disgusted and frightened about the direction of our country that something like this could even happen and then be brushed under the carpet because they don’t want to upset their little apple cart! I can’t imagine the amount of tax dollars that went into the pockets of these attorneys and innocent parties being dragged through the courts for years with all these legal expenses. This is a very SCARY thought that someone can be put through something like this and it goes on forever. Something has to happen to change our justice system and all the $$$$$ that lawyers line their pockets with while innocent people and their families suffer. This is certainly not “fairness”.
