Insider Trading is illegal

December 7, 2011

“It is unlawful to use or employ any stop-loss order in connection with the purchase or sale, of any security registered on a national securities exchange, in contravention of such rules and regulations as the Commission may prescribe as necessary or appropriate in the public interest or for the protection of investors.” as stated in Section 10 of the ” Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Everybody understands insider trading is illegal, unless you’re in Congress, the Executive Branch or the Legislative Branch of our Government.  For years the American citizens feelings towards Congress have been plummeting in an uncontrollable spiral downward as we learn details concerning their moral character, ethical standards along with their blatant attempts to bride other members for votes on specific bills they need passed.  With the issue of insider trading we are led to believe  Congress passed a law which exempt them from following the rule regulating trades.

According to the Committee on Insider Trading, Congress is not nor never have been exempt from these laws.  Members who trade with information received during the course of duties in Congress are breaking Securities Exchange laws.  Members of all branches of government continually exasperated their declining popularity with the American People as they use their positions to engage in unethical behaviors that would land the average citizen locked up behind bars for many years.

Not to long ago, Martha Stewart went to jail for gaining an unfair advantage over the average citizen walking the streets of America with information gained that wasn’t public knowledge.  Recently  Primary Global Research led Sales Representative, James Fleishman was found guilty in Manhattan of insider trading and will be sentenced December 21, 2011.

During the three and a half hour hearing the panel interpreted the law as no one is exempt from insider trading laws and elected officials need to be held at a higher standard with repercussions to those who conduct business with unsavory behavior.  Representative Sean Duffy (R) Wisconsin asked that legislation being considered (Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act, H.R. 1148)  should hold all members to strict reporting requirements. One such requirement would be to report to the House within three days of a stock trade.

Committee Member Representative Walter B. Jones (R) N.C.  interrupted Rep. Duffy to interject this statement concerning the questionable trades,  “If nothing else comes from this but meaningful legislation that the Congresses of next year and the year after that they know what is right and wrong then the American people will win.”   I find it unfathomable that members of Congress do not already know what is right and wrong with the way they conduct the business of our Country for their own personal gain.

Our goal now as voting members of this Country must be to elect representatives who will conduct the business of our Nation responsibility, ethically and following the Constitution when presenting legislation. Our nation is in peril as we continue to spend 42 cents out of every dollar that we don’t have. The insanity must stop in Washington relatively soon. If we do not elect officials with the interest of the nation ahead of their own we will be a troubled nation.

We borrow 43 cents out of every dollar we spend right now. We borrow 4 billion dollars a day to continue down this path of self-destruction which doesn’t seem to affect most members of Congress as their re-election campaigns are more important to them.  When you vote in the upcoming election, know your candidates and find out who will serve our nation instead of their self interests.


70 years ago, it happened

December 6, 2011

Tomorrow we revisit the attack on Pearl Harbor which transpired 70 years ago.  Beginning at 7:53 AM, Japanese dive bombers dropped 1760 pound explosives on the decks of our fleet destroying 8 Battleships including the USS Arizona. Our Military Family went to work defending the sovereignty of our land with little regard for their personal safety shooting at the Kamikaze pilots with all they had. The surprise attack took 2403 lives that day and wounded more than a 1000 others in just under the two-hour raid.

As we honor our fallen heroes be reminded without our militia this Great Nation would not exist as our Founding Fathers intended it to be. We would not have a Constitution that has withstood all that has been presented to her. We as a nation would have crumbled. For over two hundred and fifty years this nation has been able to prosper because of the uniqueness of the people who came here for freedoms not allowed anywhere else in the World.

December 7, 1941 “A date which will live in infamy” as President Roosevelt stated to Congress and the World over a live radio broadcast just one day after the attack asking Congress for a “Declaration of War” citing the Japanese as our enemy.  World War II would be a struggle to remain free unlike the first World War where we became allies ensuring their freedom from Nazi Germany.

Be thankful for what we have here in America and thank those armed forces members who routinely are put in harms way so we can continue to work and prosper without fear of our Government seizing our land, money and children. God Bless America and all our Military Families out there.


Is Newt the one

December 3, 2011

With all that is happening in the Republican Party is Newt the one to lead our nation out of despair into prosperity?  The polls from Iowa show Newt with a strong lead over Mitt Romney. Just a few months ago Newt Gingrich had no money, no support, no chance of being in the top 7 let along the number one spot. Today he leads 28 -12 in the Insider/Advantage poll conducted by Newsmax.

Ron Paul came in second with 13 points, one point ahead of Romney. The Republican voters in Iowa are making a statement against Mitt at this time.  They don’t feel he is the candidate to beat President Obama.  Talking to voters across the nation, the one thing  they have in common, they don’t want a candidate that changes positions at every function he attends. That is what Mitt Romney represents to a large sect of voters.

In a Republican Forum held in Fairfax Virginia yesterday twelve individuals stated their views on all the candidates. Mitt was represented as a candidate that sways with the crowd and will say or do whatever the moment requires as a “Polished” candidate would.  This stigma will follow Romney until Gingrich loses momentum as the most intelligent candidate with the solutions needed to lead our nation back into prosperity.
