For The CABLEINCH
Hall of Shame
" What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know . . .
it's what we know for sure that just ain't so. "
-- Mark Twain
Perception vs. Reality
Those listed in this section have been nominated ONLY for induction into the CABLEINCH Hall of Shame for a possible association with crimes committed in the COVER-UP of MorganStanleyGate. Their association may be as a participant, observer or merely an innocent bystander who may have information that would be helpful in the investigation of criminal wrongdoings and/or pursuit of civil claims. To be clear, a nomination means this: Unless their infamous induction is so indicated, they should be presumed innocent of any wrongdoing. Another way of looking at this is as a checklist of people to speak with to be sure "no rock is left unturned".
As the facts unfold, a determination is made concerning whether the behavior of a nominee determines their actions (or lack thereof) were witting or unwitting. Those whose behavior was clearly deliberate are inducted pursuant to one of three classifications ⇨ MONSTERS -- those whose actions were premeditated and "as evil as evil can be"; ⇨ THUGS -- executed transgressions on behalf of a "Monster" while appearing incorrigibly devoid of moral values; and
⇨ COWARDS -- indirectly involved in misdeeds they knew to be wrong, but were too cowardly to do anything about.
Notwithstanding the classification of induction, ALL inductees share one common trait . . . they are BOMBASTIC LIARS, and they will no doubt become more so as the "noose of truth" begins to tighten around their necks . . . and it WILL.
The CABLEINCH Hall of Shame represents the ultimate dichotomy between perception and reality. It is the bright sunlight that exposes the true character of those individuals, and the reality of their ATROCIOUSLY EVIL behavior in the Triangle Region of North Carolina, such that it warrants the distinction of widespread notorious public recognition -- for those who are culpable MUST be disinfected (i.e, removed) from their positions for the protection of the public. Although most inducted will likely have had no knowledge (by design) of the identity of the underlying sponsors (Morgan Stanley & Kirkland & Ellis) who helped facilitate or otherwise instigate their misdeeds, they are ALL very much aware their acts of aggression or instances of neglected responsibilities were not only morally and ethically wrong, but in many cases, complicitly unlawful.
This Was Not Merely An Illusion . . .
Many of those who have been or will eventually be inducted into The CABLEINCH Hall of Shame are business leaders, long practicing attorneys, senior government officials, and community leaders who may have been considered "pillars of society" by some. Some have garnered respect and admiration over many years, achieving perceived "success" in their respective fields, such that their honesty and integrity would be normally deemed beyond reproach. However, as will be revealed by the facts supporting their induction into The CABLEINCH Hall of Shame, the stark reality is that such a lofty perception was a not merely an illusion (akin to pulling back the curtain on The Wizard of Oz). . .but a cataclysmic fraud and an hypocrisy of epic proportion, much like the shocking revelations that played out in the media for Bernie Madoff, Marc Dreier, Elliot Spitzer and Ted Haggard (discussed below) . . . and those who have been (or will be) INDUCTED have nowhere near the lofty reputation each in this "fearsome foursome" had prior to their respective catastrophic downfalls.
. . . But The Realization of Epic Fraud & Hypocrisy
The stories of the four now notorious fraudsters described below revealed how once prominent leaders had long duped virtually everyone into believing they were someone they in fact were NOT:
Business Leaders such as Bernie Madoff - Mr. Madoff was the pioneer of electronic securities trading and is credited in the creation of the NASDAQ stock exchange, serving as its Chairman, and also served on the Board of Governors of the NASD, the self-regulatory arm of the securities industry. He was viewed as a larger-than-life embodiment of integrity . . . that is until his Ponzi scheme was exposed, revealing he had DEFRAUDED investors in excess of $10 billion. He was convicted of 11 counts of FRAUD, money laundering, etc, and is in prison, serving what is effectively a life sentence (150 years).
Prominent Attorneys such as Marc Dreier - Mr. Dreier was a pedigreed (Yale University & Harvard Law) attorney who ran a law firm in which he was the sole owner. Dreier LLP featured a who's who list of celebrity clients, and employed an "all-star team" of lawyers across the country, whom he paid lavish salaries. His firm was headquartered in NYC on Park Ave. with five offices in major cities spanning the U.S. His integrity was deemed to be unquestionable. However, he too engaged in a Ponzi scheme with investors, bilking them out of $400 million. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to 8 counts of FRAUD, and is also serving a lengthy prison term.
Government Officials such as Elliott Spitzer - Mr. Spitzer was similarly well-educated (Princeton University & Harvard Law School) and served as New York's Attorney General, who prosecuted prostitution rings during his tenure, and had cultivated a reputation for being "upstanding to a fault" and the "consummate family man". As Governor of New York, his integrity was deemed to be of the highest standard, and there was serious talk of him running for President. However, in 2008, an FBI sting operation inadvertently stumbled upon him as a frequent patron of a high-priced call girl ring, when he was caught with a 22 year old brunette named Ashley Dupré -- he resigned shortly thereafter.
Community Leaders such as Ted Haggard - Mr. Haggard was a powerful evangelical minister who preached against drug use and homosexuality, and often publicly voiced his vehement opposition to gay marriage. At the height of his prominence as effectively the "Pope" to all Evangelicals in the U.S., his integrity was widely perceived to be "at the level of Jesus Christ's". However, in 2006, he was forced to step down as leader of American Evangelicals after the scandal broke about his 3-year gay love affair with a male prostitute, sexual abuse of young male church members and abusive use of methamphetamines.

Nominees for Induction
The individuals nominated for induction into The CABLEINCH Hall of Shame are listed in the right column, and are grouped alphabetically by vocation. Those who have been been inducted are so noted by the category - MONSTERS THUGS or COWARDS - and their date of induction.
As noted above, induction is made only after careful consideration and evaluation of verifiable facts surrounding their actions, which ultimately determines the category (or classification) of induction. These classifications were chosen because they are readily understood and aptly describe the nature of their actions (or lack thereof).
To illustrate the scope and magnitude of the Cover-Up involved in the MorganStanleyGate scandal, here's a Headcount Summary by Vocation of those involved in or otherwise may have knowledge of the transgressions (i.e., the Nominees)and those who are, in fact culpable (the Inductees):
