Once a Chicago Thug, Always a Chicago Thug

If you are actually surprised at this news, you might want to re-evaluate just whether you should ever again vote in any election—ever!

Top White House officials last week pressed the chief executive officers of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. to stop lobbying against a financial-regulatory bill advancing in Congress, according to people who attended the meeting. President Barack Obama’s senior adviser David Axelrod and National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers met with Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon, Bank of America’s Brian Moynihan and about 12 other executives at an April 6 event in Washington hosted by the Financial Services Forum

The problem with allowing the government to take over the financial industry, is that idiots like the Teleprompter-in-Chief will then decide that they have the brain power to know what is right and wrong for that industry.

During one exchange, executives raised concern over the administration’s criticism of the industry’s efforts to influence the bill, according to one participant. Summers responded by calling on the industry to cease running ads against the bill and to stop its lobbyists from trying to insert loopholes in the legislation, the person said.

Do you get it now?  You spent all the money on Obama (just how many millions came from Wall Street we will never really know) and now that he’s pushing things you don’t like you get to SHUT UP! And do you know why?  Well,

White House officials have expressed frustration with the industry for lobbying against overhaul efforts after a $700 billion taxpayer-funded bailout helped them restore profits and near-record compensation for executives. Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Bank of America are among banks that have repaid the money.

You got your bailout, and your bonuses aren’t being mau-maued (for now), so shut up and support The Greatest President Who Ever Deigned To Touch the Soil of Earth With His Shoe!

Illegals Using Fake Badges To Work At O’Hare

The 23 illegal workers were employed by Ideal Staffing Solutions Inc., whose corporate secretary and office manager also were arrested after an eight-month investigation that involved federal, state and Chicago authorities.
The company contracted work for carriers including United Airlines, KLM and Qantas, said Elissa A. Brown, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent.
According to affidavits in a complaint against Gurin and Benitez unsealed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, the applications for the 110 bogus badges listed Social Security numbers that either did not exist or belonged to other individuals, some of whom were dead.
One affidavit from a temporary worker who cooperated with authorities said Benitez told him to look through a box containing about 20 airport security badges and to pick one with a picture that resembled his own face.

“The investigation identifies a vulnerability that could compromise national security, while bringing criminal charges against individuals who built an illegal work force into their business practice,” Brown said.
Ideal Staffing officials did not return a telephone message left after business hours Wednesday by The Associated Press.
Much of the investigation centered on the airport security badges issued by the Department of Aviation, said U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald. Agents found that 110 of the 134 badges issued to Ideal Staffing workers did not match the individuals who carried them, he said.
Mary Gurin, 36, of Carpentersville, and Norinye Benitez, 24, of Franklin Park, were each charged with one federal count of harboring illegal immigrants for gain and one federal count of misuse of Social Security numbers.
Benitez is believed to be an illegal immigrant from Mexico, and Gurin employed her and signed her airport badge application while knowing her illegal status, Brown said.
