1. “Billions In Blood Money Enjoyed by War Criminals’ Families

BMW, Vatican, Big Banks Enjoy Ill-Gotten Gains

While you might not see them on Forbes’ list of wealthy people, criminals and their beneficiaries are some of the richest people on the planet.

For example, Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels’ heirs are billionaires who own half of BMW. They are also closely connected with Daimler. Four of Goebbels’ step-grandchildren are worth $1.2 billion each, according to an investigation by Bloomberg. Much of their wealth came from slave labor at German concentration camps.

The Goebbels family weren’t the only ones to get rich from Nazi efforts. Barclays, Chase, and the Bush family made money hand over fist financing the Adolph and the gang.

The Vatican has built a secret property empire worth close to a billion U.S. dollars using money Italian dictator Mussolini gave the church for blessing fascism.

Modern tyrants have gotten wealthy from oppressing people as well. For example, the family of U.S.-backed Egyptian dictator Mubarak holds $40-70 billion. Russian leader Putin also has a current net worth of $40 billion. (They pale in comparison to Libya’s Gaddafi, worth $200 billion.)

Indeed, given up to $32 trillion dollars are being hidden in offshore tax shelters, the amount of wealth accumulated through crime is nearly impossible to track.

What should have happened, of course, is that ill-gotten gains should have been clawed back from the criminals as soon as they were discovered, just as they should be clawed back from Wall Street fraudsters.

But that is not likely to happen, since many political and business leaders are unrepentant and unwilling to root out crime.

Indeed, when the elite profit from things such as laundering drug and terror money, funding both sides of wars and other unsavory acts, no one wants to stop the music.

Balzac may have been exaggerating when he said, “Behind every great fortune lies a great crime.” There are some wealthy people who earned their money by honestly delivering a better or cheaper product or service.”

3. “The World Doesn’t Need Killer Mothers

Now Lady GIs Can Kill the Poor Overseas

Big step forward for society’s ruling rich adding half of the population to its reservoir of cannon fodder as they heavily invest in WMD and their deployment surrounding Iran, China and Russia. But potential recruits should consider how difficult it will be to avoid self-incriminating themselves in obvious crimes against humanity and peace. An Nuremberg style trial is inevitable.

The world doesn’t need killer mothers and girls anymore that it needs cowardly men that enjoy following any orders to kill anyone anywhere, now often from a distance of half-way around the earth or from a flying weapon of mass-destruction, by pushing a button on fellow human beings. Men and women doing to other peoples families and homes what they would cry foul if others did to their own families and homes, this is an example of today’s American exceptionalism – exceptionally immoral, exceptionally blind and bestial and exceptionally and proud of being ignorant, thoughtless of others but exceptionally clever (or so they imagine).”
