Fraud, Lies Doom CFTC Nominee Chris Brummer, No Ag, No Substance, All BS
CHRIS BRUMMER, the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) nominee is a notorious Georgetown Law professor known as Dr. Bratwurst – a fraudster with a ridiculous PhD in “Germanic Studies” – singing German opera, grilling Bratwurst sausages and dancing with naked European gals during Oktoberfest. Folks, this is not comical. This is serious business that America’s farmers ought to be in arms! Their lives are just about to be turned upside down very badly by the Dr. Bratwurst – Chris Brummer.
CFTC Nominee Chris Brummer, a criminal Michael Milken front, a “sly fox” in the “CFTC henhouse”
Investigations have reveled the convicted felon Michael Milken is the money man behind Chris Brummer’s push for the CFTC nomination. The criminal Michael Milken is a long time Clinton Foundation donor, a major contributor to the Democratic Party and the “junk bond king” barred for life by the Securities and Exchange Commission for market manipulation. Sources say since Michael Milken is a convicted criminal, Chris Brummer is Milken’s front man who would collude with Milken to manipulate the commodity market at the CFTC. Records reveal Chris Brummer has been on Milken’s payroll for almost 10 years.
Chris Brummer’s shady dealings with Michael Milken were not disclosed to the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee, headed by the distinguished Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) and Senator Debbie Stebenow (D-Michigan).
“In nominating Chris Brummer to the CFTC, criminal Milken’s money and the Democratic Party’s long established tradition of “pay to play” have reached the stratosphere.”
Ironically, the CFTC is a government body that is supposed to protect America’s farmers from trading manipulation. It is breathtaking that Chris Brummer’s boss and mentor Michael Milken was sent to 10 years in prison for the same crimes CFTC would want to prevent.
“In a highly conflicted relationship between Chris Brummer and the CFTC, the ‘fox guarding the henhouse‘ is in play.”
Also hidden from the Senate Agriculture Committee is the fact that Chris Brummer’s boss Michael Milken was investigated by the SEC in 2015 for violating his life time bar from the securities industry. The SEC investigation into Milken also implicated Chris Brummer, which led to record fines, according to an announcement from the SEC enforcement. Reported by Fox News and the Fortune Magazine, the duo were caught by the SEC for “failing to disclose conflict of interest.”
By law, the CFTC should be led by agricultural industry experts – not a highly unqualified imbecile like the Dr. Bratwurst Chris Brummer – a political hack deeply embroiled in the Michael Milken criminal fraud.
“Admittedly, Chris Brummer has zero experience in agriculture. He has never worked a day on a farm. He has a notorious reputation that stinks like a dead rat due to a long list of sexual affairs, lies and fraud allegations against him.”
On September 15, 2016, the Senate Agriculture Committee chaired by the highly regarded Republican Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) held a hearing to examine Chris Brummer. In front of a C-SPAN TV camera, Chris Brummer swept like a skunk in the gutter: the man was visibly nervous and shaken. Truth be told: Chris Brummer was deeply worried…
The Dr. Bratwurst vs the true expert Brian Quintenz
The African American Chris Brummer’s nonexistent background in ag pales him like a “snow white” in sharp contrast to the well-spoken Republic party nominee Brian Quintenz, who is a commodity market expert from the great state of Ohio. Quintenz has spent almost twenty years as a CFTC regulated broker – deeply rooted in issues critical to the American farmers. It was apparent Quintenz was an ag expert well deserving a CFTC confirmation.
On the other hand, Chris Brummer fumbled over simple questions and responded with pure nonsense – the typical Dr. Bratwurst dance during Oktoberfest. Just a few examples:
Senator Pat Roberts: “Mr. Brummer, you have published an article that berated CFTC regulations. Why do you want a job as a CFTC regulator?”
Chris Brummer: “Thank you for noticing my great academic work! I have since changed. I am a new man now.”
Q: “Mr. Brummer, your educational background is in Germanic Studies. Why do you believe singing opera in German and grilling Bratwurst sausages would qualify you as an agriculture industry expert?”
A – Chris Brummer: “Sir, Germanic Studies is about celebrating life, enjoying farm products like grilling Bratwurst sausages made out of hog meat. Hog is directly related to agriculture, that’s clearly my experience in ag…”
The audience was shocked and burst into laughter.
Chris Brummer, the Dr. Bratwurst from Arkansas
Would drinking beer and grilling Bratwurst sausages in Arkansas qualify Brummer as a CFTC regulator? Obviously not. To cover up a fast sinking rabbit hole, Chris Brummer started with a self-introduction which frustrated the audience with more questions than answers.
Chris Brummer: “I have ag experience! I grew up in a farm in Arkansas helping my folks raising animals. I also chased wild boars… In fact, I slept with hogs…I know them well.”
When asked about policies in dealing with European commodity regulators who resist U.S. trading rules, Chris Brummer’s answer was “to the point”: “I will talk to them!”
“Anything else?” asked a puzzled Senator.
“No.” Dr. Bratwurst Chris Brummer responded.
During the hour-long hearing, Brummer cleverly dodged questions of any substance – because he had no substance! Brummer’s answers were stiff, uniform and appeared to have come out of the same rear end, played like a tape recorder: “Well, that’s a key concern… I have no idea now. But I will tell you what to do after I get confirmed…”
Anything else from Dr. Bratwurst, the CFTC nominee Chris Brummer? Nothing. That’s about it.
“Yikes! In evaluating Brummer, the Senators were told to cover their noses and put their trust in the Dr. Bratwurst who hasn’t a stick of ag experience!”
Chris Brummer literally bullshited his way throughout the Senate confirmation hearing – sweating like a hog.
The short Senate hearing confirmed at least one important aspect of Brummer’s testimony: Chris Brummer has no ag experience, no ag background, no substance, just BS.
Will Senator Pat Roberts honor his own words, protect the American farmers?
Everyone loves Senator Pat Roberts. He is humorous, smart and he minces no words on the record:
“…we must make sure CFTC nominees have a solid understanding of agriculture and prioritize the folks who use the futures and derivatives markets to manage risk.”
Senator Roberts’ well-defined statement sure sounded like a eulogy or a death nail to the CFTC nominee Chris Brummer. For the sake of America’s farmers, the honorable Senator Roberts should turn the Dr. Bratwurst Chris Brummer into “burnt meat” by dumping this highly unqualified CFTC nominee.
Anything more to say about Chris Brummer? Well, Senator Pat Roberts, Chris Brummer already gave you the answer in his own words: “I will check out your hogs in Kansas. I will also help your constituents turn their hogs into Bratwurst sausages. I have a PhD in that stuff! ”
Chris Brummer, a checkered history of sex, lies, fraud, abuses
Chris Brummer’s own checkered history is just as tainted as a hog washing in the mud:
In 2015, Chris Brummer was strongly condemned in a filing made public by the Securities and Exchange Commission for destroying the lives of two innocent black brokers.
In 2014, Chris Brummer was engaged in an alleged extramarital affair with a FINRA witness while Brummer had a moonlighting job for the notorious FINRA NAC – a FINRA rubber stamp that sides with FINRA staff 100% of the time.
In 2015, Chris Brummer filed a frivolous lawsuit against the press for causing him “emotional harm.” Brummer vowed to shut down the internet. The lawsuit was quickly tossed out of court by a New York judge.
In 2015, Chris Brummer was a suspect in an alleged campus rape at Georgetown Law School… He barely kept his tenure – confessed in his own words in a 2015 interview with a tabloid: “Unless I am caught raping someone, I will not lose my tenure. I teach only 3-5 hours a week at Georgetown Law – easy money. That’s about $3,000 an hour!”
Showered with the allegations of sex, fraud and lies, Chris Brummer nonetheless has the right answer for the Senators: “I made mistakes in the past, I will get better. Just confirm me please!”
The offices of Democratic Senators Debbie Stabenow, Kirsten Gillibrand and Thom Tillis who are member of the Senate Agriculture Committee have all declined to comment. The Milken Institute, Michael Milken’s front also declined to comment on Chris Brummer’s compensation at the Milken outfit.
Chris Brummer, the nuclear bomb for America’s agriculture industry
When a CFTC nominee is so shockingly unqualified as Chris Brummer, a train wreck is hitting America’s farmers hard in their pockets.
“If voters and farmers truly want to improve their living standards and gain better pricing for their products, Chris Brummer is the man who will deliver just the opposite.”
Chairman Pat Roberts said after the hearing that he doesn’t know when the panel will vote on whether to advance the nominees to the full Senate.
Is Senator Roberts a man of his words? “No ag, no CFTC nominee?”
The media spotlight is clearly on Chairman Pat Roberts. For the rest of us still plowing the filed in Kansas, saying “NO” to Dr. Bratwurst Chris Brummer for the CFTC job is simple: Dr. Bratwurst Chris Brummer is an unqualified phony.
