Is Congress Guilty Of Inside Trading.

Do you think most people understand the meaning of inside trading ? If you don’t , then you should understand that it’s the trading of the stocks , bonds and stock options or other securities in a public company by people who have access to non public information about the company. Does congress violate this trust when they buy stocks in companies that contract with the government ? I think so. For example: In 2009 Defense Secretary Robert Gates said that their was 6.9 Billion dollars of budgeted items in the Defense Spending Bill that they did not need. Congress was made aware of this and approved the bill anyway. Recently they’ve begun lobbying for 436 million dollars to make improvements to the Abrams tank even though the Pentagon doesn’t want the improvements made because they have classified it as outdated and ineffective as an armored fighting vehicle . In 2006 , 151 congressmen had up to 195.5 million dollars invested in companies who received defense contracts that were greater than 5 million dollars. In 2006 these companies benefited in the amount greater than 276.5 billion dollars from the government. This kind of inside trading has led to world wars and conflicts around the globe and is certainly responsible for are current affairs in the middle east and the practice should be stopped.

( Quotes From Site ) A person who is convicted of insider trading can be fined up to $5,000,000 and/or imprisoned up to 20 years.

Richard Wagner, a data retrieval expert at the German based firm, Convar, said illegal transfers of more than $100 million might have been made immediately before and during the 9/11 disaster. There is a suspicion that some people had advance knowledge of the approximate time of the plane crashes in order to move out amounts exceeding $100 million,” Wagner said

Here is how the game is played. The British liaison officer at Fort Meade types the target list of “suspects” into the American computer. The NSA sorts through its wiretaps and gives the British officer the recording of any American citizen he wants.
Since it is technically a British target of surveillance, no American search warrant is necessary. The British officer then simply hands the results over to his American liaison officer.
Of course, the Americans provide the same service to the British in return.

If the U.S. created the war on terror by creating 9/11 then they should be held responsible for their war crimes by the UN and the ICC and held financially responsible to Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and the American people.
The news footage in this video alone has brought questions from around the world as to what happened. ( Note: The eye witness account of 9/11 by Mark Burnback from Fox News. From – 44:37 to 46:25 – in the 9/11 In Plain Site video. ) The footage shows three accounts of people indicating the plane was not an American Airliner. The first video is just the footage with Mark Burnback. It’s pretty solid evidence. The 9/11 In Plain Site Video could of been done a little better but it’s full of good information and footage and it has a good section on the Oklahoma bombing (56:28) Three Bombs Found ? ). The video is on Netflix also.

Washington Post – Top Secret America –
( Quoted Print From The Article – A hidden world, growing beyond control ) The investigation’s other findings include:
http://projects.washingtonpost.com/top-secret-america/articles/a-hidden-world-growing-beyond-control/
* Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in about 10,000 locations across the United States.

* An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1.5 times as many people as live in Washington, D.C., hold top-secret security clearances.

* In Washington and the surrounding area, 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2001. Together they occupy the equivalent of almost three Pentagons or 22 U.S. Capitol buildings – about 17 million square feet of space.

* Many security and intelligence agencies do the same work, creating redundancy and waste. For example, 51 federal organizations and military commands, operating in 15 U.S. cities, track the flow of money to and from terrorist networks.

* Analysts who make sense of documents and conversations obtained by foreign and domestic spying share their judgment by publishing 50,000 intelligence reports each year – a volume so large that many are routinely ignored.

Should our political lobby system be considered bribery. ( Quote )
Bribery is an act of giving money or gift giving that alters the behavior of the recipient. Bribery constitutes a crime and is defined by Black’s Law Dictionary as the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in charge of a public or legal duty.
