The Collected Wisdom Of Peter Navarro’s Fake Stock Market Guru, ‘Ron Vara’
“What do capital punishment and profitable stock market investing have in common? They both depend on the execution.”
at Organization of American States on April 12, 2016 in Washington, DC.
Michael Pillsbury, seen in his Georgetown home in Washington, D.C., November 28, 2012, a China expert who has advised three Republican administrations and held numerous security clearances, had to battle claims by polygraphers that he made admissions of leaking sensitive information. After he rebutted the allegations, the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals gave him top secret access he was seeking. However, the tens of thousands of Americans who now undergo federal polygraph screening every year for jobs or security clearances generally face entrenched secrecy and daunting legal hurdles if they challenge their tests. Most federal employees are barred from suing in court, forced instead to seek recourse from the agencies that denied their jobs or security clearances in the first place. (Mary F. Calvert/MCT)
