Having been a co-owner of a corporate tax practice, there is a deep understanding (and respect) for a client’s right, their expectation, to privacy. Not only that, but there is a fiduciary responsibility to all clients (regardless of net worth!) to safeguard associated tax records and correspondence. Concomitantly, record retention is key. Its essence is detailed within a very important area defined as “code of professional ethics and responsibilities” . The penalty for trampling on these responsibilities are not light. Nor should they be.
That being said, going “paperless” (to a certain degree) offers many advantages, especially as a space saver. Being buried in paper can take on a life of its own. Like a Golem. Been there. Done that. HOWEVER, certain papers – a decision made within each office – regardless of other constraints are kept in their original form.
But before we go any further, it is essential to note that the purging of electronic documents, within certain areas of public and private ventures, is a criminal act. It is a complicated area, but no less true.
Nonetheless, those who operate within the confines of a criminal bent, like the Criminal-in-Chief, hardly co-join themselves with surrogates (inside and outside their inner sanctums) who are performing from a moral axis of due diligence. Not at all.
So, regardless of this or that entity’s fancy titles – be it through their educational pedigrees or what not – a political/business whore is always a whore. A thief is a thief, despite their dressage. Scum is always scum, even if they are protected by powerful associates. Their stench is the same as any lowlife criminal. Just ask anyone who cleans bathrooms for a living!
17 January 2014: A few days ago, I was given a gift of sorts. It arrived in a plain manila envelope with no return address. Inside was a note that stated that I would know precisely what to do with the information this anonymous source provided. That source was indeed correct.
Hopefully, those who are engaged in this frenzied shredding operation received their orders in writing and have taken extraordinary steps to safeguard their orders far beyond the company vault. For if history tells us anything, and it should, this menial but criminally significant task is almost always left to the “disposable” kind of employees where the blame always falls and a stint in prison leaves less of public stigma to other certain, high-value executives dictating the orders. It’s plausible deniability in action, or PD, as it is known in the tradecraft.According to this benefactor of inside information, the electric bills of certain companies for the next billing cycle and employee overtime costs for the next pay schedule will be particularly high due to the cost of operating shredders and paying people to use them. Not just for physical shredding, but for the electronic erasure of documents, memos and e-mails pertaining to certain companies who played a supporting role in the establishment and roll-out of “ObamaCare” and the Healthcare.gov website. Moreover, this very task of document destruction is still taking place, which should serve as a red-phone call to congressional investigators who have not been financially enriched in the cronyism of ObamaCare.
As always, though, the extent of the lies and corruption is much deeper than meets the eye. It takes a lot of peeling of the onion to get to the truth, and I’ve left a lot of onion skins on the floor by following the leads of my bipartisan, benevolent benefactor to bring forth this information.
It was just announced that the Obama White House is dropping CGI, Inc. next month when its contract with the U.S. federal government expires. Certain journalists and armchair sleuths with a peculiar penchant for political partisanship engaged in a frenzied frolic at the discovery of cronyism related to CGI. News that Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior executive at CGI Federal, was a college classmate of Michelle Obama at Princeton and visited the White House complex on several occasions was sufficient cause for celebration and provided entertaining fodder for the one-dimensional political pundits. CGI Federal ultimately secured a $678 million no-bid contract to build the ObamaCare website, and did so miserably. At least, that’s the government’s story, and they’re sticking to it. Yet that’s just the veneer of a much deeper, more nefarious scheme, especially when you look at its replacement.
The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services recently announced that a company known as Accenture has been selected to become the lead contractor for HealthCare.gov. Research into CGI’s replacement found very interesting information about just who is rescuing the exchange that should leave everyone reading this less than relieved. You see, Accenture was previously known as Andersen Consulting, a corporate outgrowth of the Chicago-based accounting firm Arthur Andersen, LLP. If that name seems to ring a bell, it should.
Arthur Andersen, LLP became inextricably linked to the Texas-based energy giant Enron, as they provided made-to-order auditing services to Enron. Of course everybody remember Enron’s founder Kenneth Lay, a close friend of the Bush family dynasty and favorite whipping boy of the Progressives. Lay became the Progressive poster-child for graft and crony capitalism, but his knowledge of where the proverbial bodies were buried became cause for concern among those involved in the criminal enterprise, especially those close to the Oval Office.
Lay was ultimately convicted of 10 of the 11 counts of securities fraud and related charges in May of 2006. Before he could be sentenced or offer any information that could mitigate his sentence, however, Lay, age 64, died as a result of… a heart attack. Too many breakfasts of Eggs Benedict, or so we are to believe. A mere “fortuitous happenstance” for some.
Like the proverbial Phoenix, Arthur Andersen, LLP, or the core of the corporation, rose from the ashes of scandal and landed in Dublin, Ireland as Accenture. Of course, there are multiple steps in between, but I’ll spare the reader the task of onion peeling. Nonetheless, one might wonder if a portrait of the late Kenneth Lay bestows their offices, or at least some of the desks of the corporate execs there.
The transfer of responsibilities from CGI to Accenture to clean up the mess is an interesting one indeed. Perhaps CGI or other contractors and subcontractors could qualify for energy credits to mitigate the cost of their current power consumption. Or, perhaps some of the more informed members of the devout yet disposable support staff of the ObamaCare site should consider picking up a phone before they load more documents into the auto-feed paper tray of the company shredder.
There’s more… much more. But for now, perhaps the elected leaders in whom patriotic constitutionalist adherents to the right-left paradigm place so much of their faith could stop the destruction of documentation instead of merely putting on a useless display of public outrage. After all, such records may be necessary in a criminal trial, ala Enron.
The sooner people understand that ObamaCare has nothing to do with affordable health care, the better off we’ll all be. It’s all about consolidation and control, and the enrichment of a select few on the path to subjugation. The masks of the players might change, but they are still the same players in the game of ultimate control.
EVERY business owner has surely spent time deciding which paper documents must stay on site, be placed in storage or shredded. But only those who are up to hinky business are busy covering their tracks by running this and that incriminating document through the shredder.
In other words, the whir of this useful receptacle of convenience elicits a double-edged sword. Those who operate in an honest vein are doing what’s right by their clients and customers, whatever type of business. However, when it comes to those associated with a regime gone wild, well…..and yes, BOTH sides of the aisle in Washington are accomplices to the above crimes.
AND if all else fails, the above (political) criminals resort to ultimate and final measures…those who require permanent “disposal” drop like flies, especially when a shredder won’t get the job done!
It should go without saying, jail is too light a punishment for the leaders within the Beltway’s criminal gang!
As an added “treat”, guess who came out of the shadows, so to speak, and is now comfortably ensconced in the White House? IF you guessed Soros – the devil incarnate – you would be right!! Now, the fact that Val has (allegedly) been “demoted” means diddly squat. She is EVER present – Soros in Our White House – Jarrett Demoted & Plouffe Gone
