US Russia Sanctions, Yellen Taper’s Money Printing, Kevin Trudeau Fraud Conviction, Why Not Bankers?

http://usawatchdog.com/weekly-news-wr… – Russian President Putin now says, “Crimea is part of Russia.” A referendum in Crimea voted overwhelmingly in favor of joining Russia. The West is not buying it and has sanctioned Russia. This is supposed to be a serious international crisis, so why are the sanctions to light? We hit with a feather and then another feather by only sanctioning a few people in Ukraine and Russia. Russia hit back with some feather sanctions of its own, but also threatens to damage the U.S. dollar and not helping us with the Iranian nuclear negotiations.

New Fed Chief Janet Yellen gave her first press conference, and the markets crashed. You really can’t blame her. She is now in charge, and interest rates have nowhere to go but up. The Fed cut another $10 billion in bond buying, but it is still pumping out $55 billion a month to prop up the system. That is still more than $600 billion a year.

Finally, infomercial pitchman Kevin Trudeau has been convicted of fraud and sentenced to 10 years in prison. He’s lucky, sentencing guidelines say he could have gotten as much as 25 years. My question: Why no jail time for big bankers who have committed fraud on a global scale? What is wrong with this picture?
