The Foreclosure Wars Are Over….And The Fascists Have Won….(surprised?)

The announcement yesterday that Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi has dropped the remaining investigations into the foreclosure mills, the (sewer) service of process companies and the (forged) document production factories provides a clear opportunity to state what has long been obvious….

The Banks, Wall Street and The Financial Criminals Got Away With The Biggest Crime Spree In Mankind’s History.

The Banks, Wall Street and The Financial Criminals Got Away With The Biggest Crime Spree In Mankind’s History.

Now before I get too full into the diatribe here, let me digress a little bit and clarify that when I say, “Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi”, I mean that she is “Florida’s Attorney General” in name only. This elected official does not serve the interests of the citizens of the State of Florida anymore than the fascist in chief Rick Scott serves the interests of this abused citizenry. No, to be perfectly clear…and as two years of policy and initiatives demonstrate, the leadership of this state serve the interests of the corporate masters that have purchased what was nominally at least, “Government of The People, By The People, For The People.” Ha. I like to say things like that just to remember how quaint and naïve that sounds.

And since I’m digressing, let me deconstruct a little bit my increasingly persistent references to Fascism in our government today…especially as Fascism is demonstrated so clearly here in Florida. In my frequent references, I’m not exactly talking about Mussolini’s brutal, physical form of fascism…yet. I’m focused (for the present time at least) in the aspects of fascism that are manifested in the fusion of “our” government and the economy. And when I say “our” government , I mean that it is “our” government only in the nominal sense. Clearly “we” have no real ownership or control over the regime that dictates America’s national policy today….those interests being subsumed by the corporate interests that own and control every aspect of Amerikan life today. For now focus clearly on the subset of the definition of fascism which provides:

Fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer. Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Under fascism, the state, through official cartels, controlled all aspects of manufacturing, commerce, finance, and agriculture. Fascism embodied corporatism, in which political representation was based on trade and industry rather than on geography. Read More
