Bicycles, Banksters and Shills…

While I have stated many times here before, cycling like ALL major sports are corrupted. BUT, not like many traditionally think. Not corrupted because of ped use or ex-cons and felons playing ball for millions… but rather the FINANCING of these teams and players.

Cycling if rife with corruption. many high-level and mid-level teams are funded by some of the most fraudulent, criminal corporations in the world. But not a peep… I guess most sport fans, like politico muppets, have a different set of morals and ethics when it comes to a favorite sport….

But now it’s come to bike company(s) shilling for the Bankster Cartel. Enter Jamis.
A new TV spot featuring Jamis Bicycles touting their relationship with one of the big Commercial-Corporatist Investment banks. M&T. It’s bad enough that most every company has to get their financing from these criminal enterprises, but then to go on and cheerlead for immorality and unethical behavior of the Bankster Cartel is a real shame. It’s sad and nothing but greedy shareholders putting money over morals each and every time.

The opening is a heart-tugger… the reflective, heart-felt music to lull the muppet in…the women, the daughter of the founder speaks in a soft, reflective voice reminiscing about her beloved dad…it’s all DESIGNED to sucker punch the muppet! BAM, POW! A 1-2 combo that hits right at the heart and it’s a K-O if there was… (Like WC said… one born every minute)

Of course the average muppet will decry; It’s Capitalism! What do you expect! Well, no, Fozzie, actually, what banksters do is NOT capitalism in any shape or form. It’s Corporatism. It’s National Socialistic policies and behavior. But most do not grasp this or want to for that matter. And then of course, you have a contingent of ignoramuses who are just too stupid to comprehend it. M&T took $700 million of TARP money in 2008, like most every other IRRESPONSIBLE, IMMORAL and UNETHICAL bank in the U.S. and around the globe. Yes, they paid it back, albeit one of the slowest and latest to repay TAXPAYER money back to the criminal, corrupted U.S. government and its corrupted Treasury dept.

The “bailout” was nothing more than a kick in the balls of what the true free market stands (or more appropriately did stand for) It accomplished absolutely nothing to help stop the losses of million jobs, it did nothing to prevent the loss of Americans’ personal incomes/pensions and nothing to slow or halt the market losses felt by those people who didn’t receive the  luxurious “Too Big To Fail” coddling. The ‘financial crisis’ and TBTF has cost tax payers nearly 120 Billion in losses. Only you won’t hear that from the criminal enterprise that is our government, you’ll hear 50-60 Billion.

If you would like more info on the largest public-private government scam on tax payers and citizens, that was the ‘bailout’ read here

Bottom line is, money rules everything, it beats morals and ethics like a red-headed step child. But no one say’s a word about it. Especially the so-called religious types, who fly their flag on a supposed moral compass- of course it is a selective compass… but hey, glass house and all that nonsense I suppose… the point is, our pseudo corporate culture has lost most if not all of its ethics, morals and independence to, well, major corporations. It’s not only the products people buy, it’s the way most people think, the way they are conditioned to think and feel. Through media, marketing and subliminal targeting.

The independent spirit, the virtuousness and the pioneering spirit of a once great nation is almost completely gone and soon it will be. As we grow from a soft budding Police State into a hard Corporatist-Fascist State. Drones, 24/7 surveillance, appliances that will have built in connectivity and ‘talk’ to the internet (whether you like it, or approve it or not), autonomous cars with tracking, (don’t forget that mobile phones are already tracked 24/7)   Smart TV’s that listen and watch in on the viewer etc, etc. The very idea of actually privacy will all be but a memory. And who may ask is driving this? Well government for sure, but who is (partially) funding it? Who PROFITS from it? Mega-Corporations- that’s who. Military Defense Contractors, Corporate Prison Owners, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street.

Yet…not a peep from the Muppet Show that is America and the West.

  1. With the TARP money, most major banks were forced to take bailout money to mask which ones actually needed the bailout. The thinking went like this: If only the banks that actually needed it got money, a panic would set in and there would be a run on those banks. That would literally bring about 1939 all over again. I see your point but that context should be a part of it.

    • Uh, forced? Come on Jim. I expect better insight from you buddy. The big banks should have been allowed to fail, not all would have failed and those who absorbed the failures would have been stronger by now. It’s a political game. Banksters held governments hostage and own them by proxy. Worse now than it has ever been.

      • Well, the banks had politicians bent over a barrel. That much was true. If a bank failed, or worse, three or four were looking ugly, honest to God, man, it would have been Armageddon. We’d have been hunting for our food till things came back around. You might be right though, it would have been neat to see those pricks go out Enron style. It would have been a pass the popcorn moment.

      • That sounds wonderful, but 1) I always look skeptically at any piece that fails to point out the obvious: That the impetus for the crash and burn was government policy. 2) The notion that bankers losing billions makes me wealthier is ludicrous, which is why they didn’t bother trying to explain how that would work.

        That said, it was an interesting read.

    • I see your point in the context it was meant, but that was the meme at the time. The rhetoric from who? The banks of course. Sure there would have been losses, as it is we lost 33 mil jobs and billions collectively in pension monies around the globe. Who made money? Who were awarded bonuses? Ah… the bankster. It’s beyond the pale to think these criminals abscond with billions of tax payer money, while innocent hard working people were robbed. jail time? Pfft. please. TBTF…come on, #abovethelaw #sad

      • Well, who made money is a matter of perspective… My brother-in-law works for Office Depot. Office Max was trying to by them out but the sale had to go through regulators first. They offered him a NICE bonus if he stayed to the bitter end, the day the sale went through. In that case, the feds put the hammer down on the sale because it would have created a monopoly. So he kept his job and got his bonus for staying on.

        Brother, you’d have to pay me a ton of cash to stay to close out a failed bank. Just sayin’.

        Now, that isn’t to say the system was mega corrupt, it most definitely was, but everyone had a hand in it… Except me. I told my mortgage lady to stick that adjustable rate mortgage up her hoohah when I bought my house… because I’m not an idiot. ARM’s are for rich people because they can afford to take the hit of the mortgage adjusts. Only the ultramaroons didn’t know that.

  3. Spot on Russ! They (#banksters) are above the paper laws and the rules of the Constitution…because they OWN the POS, scumbag politicians and legislators. But the majority of Ignorant Americans KEEP voting for the SAME fucking corrupted, criminal Republicans and Democrats, EXPECTING a change!

    It’s laughable, it’s sad, it’s beyond the pale. Makes me ill. We have a massive muppet nation, clinging to ideologies that do not actually champion liberties and/or freedoms AND real social justice, but rather that just rail against the OTHER party. It’s part of the massive ignorance. #Statism is a mental affliction which has been wide spread through conditioned thought through Corporate owned media’s and a pseudo-corporate social lifestyle.

    Tonight we have a debate between a self-centered, child-like corporatist prick vs a National Socialist, murdering cunt. This nation has fallen very far from it’s beginnings. Much farther than most are willing to admit. Much farther than most understand and believe. We are a War-Mongering, innocent persons murdering, corporatist nation. The majority have ALLOWED this soft tyranny through what is labeled as a Democracy, which is in fact a Faux-Democracy. The elections are rigged and fixed. There is NO true Democracy in the U.S. That is a false narrative and a childish meme.

    No one is accountable, politicians, banksters, military brass. The fact that the two parties created the rules to EXCLUDE third parties through a bunch of illogical and illegal set of rules is yet another black mark on our so-called democracy. Johnson and Stien have millions of supporters, but the two parties CLAIM they did not get enough support to be allowed into the debates. And of course, the ignorant ideologues actually believe that. It’s a scam, it’s a shame, it’s a crime. We are morphing into a police state through mostly non-violent means, but the violence committed by the state is increasing. We are being stripped of rights, liberties and freedoms each day with the passing of secrete laws, legislated by proxy by the global elite bankers, who own everything. Media, healthcare, military manufactures, energy companies and pharma companies.

    The voters, the citizens no longer have ANY say as to what national policy should be. How it is framed, how it is determined. “We the People…” is a fucking farce, a joke, and again the majority buy into this ridiculous meme. Flag wavers, statists and Fascists are the enablers to a budding tyranny.
