U.S. Federal Reserve is the Worlds Greatest Criminal Enterprise / Politics / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: Ben Bernanke is the don of the greatest criminal enterprise in the world.

And yesterday his made monsters, the Five Families, lined up to kiss his ring, again.

By not "tapering" or reducing the $85 billion a month ($45 billion in Treasuries and $40 billion in agency mortgage-backed securities) the Fed is buying from banks, the Fed is saying to its hit men, "We are family, and as long as Johnny Law is coming after you, we've got your back."

Syria War - Wall Street’s Secret “Economic Endgame”: Making the World Safe for Banksters / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

Iraq and Libya have been taken out, and Iran has been heavily boycotted. Syria is now in the cross-hairs. Why? Here is one overlooked scenario . . .

In an August 2013 article titled “Larry Summers and the Secret ‘End-game’ Memo,” Greg Palast posted evidence of a secret late-1990s plan devised by Wall Street and U.S. Treasury officials to open banking to the lucrative derivatives business. To pull this off required the relaxation of banking regulations not just in the US but globally. The vehicle to be used was the Financial Services Agreement of the World Trade Organization.

Chinese Banks Quasi Government Institutions / Politics / Banksters

By: BATR

When is a bank an appendage of state? In China, the incorporation of commercial banking under the auspice of governmental policy is virtually indistinguishable. Philosophically, any government should have control of their currency and structure the precepts of banking and lending system. Capitalist banking would command a greater pragmatic function if competition among banks was based upon free enterprise. However, under the central banking scheme governments regulate banks, but are creatures of fractional reserve debt money issued by central bank parentage. The Chinese way has included a touch of mystery when analyzed within the context of western international banking.

Stay Away From Bankers - They’re Your Deadly Enemies / Politics / Banksters

I’m back, and finally calmed down, from my disastrous trip to the bank. I’ve never been so angry and humiliated in my life, even including that embarrassing time in the seventh grade when the beautiful Jennifer, whom I deeply, deeply loved more than life itself, told Mary Sue, who told Marcie, who told her boyfriend Mark, who told Todd, who told Bob, who told me, and now everybody knew, that she thinks I’m icky.

Your Money Is Not Safe In The Big Banks / Politics / Banksters

By: Rudy_Avizius

Most people think that money is safe in the big banks because the FDIC will protect the deposits. This assumption is not based on the facts. This video will show official government documents that describe the plans for confiscating deposits when (not if) a big bank fails. Individual, as well as public funds from municipal, university, county deposits are at serious risk.

Global investment banks Stand Convicted, of taking the Hypocritic Oath / Politics / Banksters

By: John_Mauldin

By Grant Williams 

 (Wikipedia): The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine honestly. It is widely believed to have been written either by Hippocrates, often regarded as the father of western medicine, or by one of his students. The oath is written in Ionic Greek (late 5th century BC), and is usually included in the Hippocratic Corpus. Classical scholar Ludwig Edelstein proposed that the oath was written by Pythagoreans, a theory that has been questioned due to the lack of evidence for a school of Pythagorean medicine. Of historic and traditional value, the oath is considered a rite of passage for practitioners of medicine in many countries, although nowadays the modernized version of the text varies among them.

How JPMorgan and the London Whale Can Sink Your Stocks Portfolio / Companies / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: In the spring of 2012, JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s (NYSE: JPM) not-so-rogue trader, Bruno Iksil, better known as the London Whale, made a series of derivatives trades on credit default swaps that only appeared to be unauthorized.

In reality, those trades were just one side of JPMorgan betting against the other in a doom struck hedging strategy.

Fabulous Liabilities For 'Fab' Tourre / Politics / Banksters

By: Andrew_McKillop

UNAMIMOUS JURY
A nine-member federal jury in Manhattan on July 31 unanimously found Fabrice “Fabulous Fab” Tourre guilty on 6 of 7 counts of fraud brought against him by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the financial sector watchdog. The former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. trader was accused of misleading certain participants in a 2007 “crisis-era” deal that cost them $1 billion, and resulted in the Paulson & Co hedge fund gaining more than $1 billion.

Goldman Sachs Re-Writing History - Fabulous Fab And The Abacus 2007 Story / Companies / Banksters

By: Andrew_McKillop

OPEN HEART HONESTY FROM GOLDMAN SACHS
Goldman Sachs has an army of very smart contract writers, to drag in what Fabrice 'Fabulous Fab' Tourre might well call “les pigeons” in French. The easy hits.

Styled as an ace concocter of financial algorithms, like Abacus 2007, the heads of these creative contract writers are however nearly always close-linked to their really vital parts. The UK Daily Telegraph, 12 July, revealed that: “Emails between Fabrice “Fabulous Fab” Tourre and his girlfriend Marine Serres - a mix of pillow talk and fears over the future of the US mortgage market - have been released by Goldman Sachs in a bid to clear its name over US fraud allegations”.

Confiscation of Retirement Accounts - Another Brick in the Wall / Politics / Banksters

By: Andy_Sutton

For the past few months we have been sounding the alarm both separately and collaboratively regarding the impending (although not necessarily imminent) looting of the Western financial system including bank accounts, public pension funds, and likely private retirement accounts to some extent. With regard to the bail-in doctrine now in place in much of the rest of the world, it appears as though Australia is jumping on board as well - as part of the 2013-2014 government budget no less. Details are still sketchy, but we’ll analyze what we have so far.

We remain absolutely convinced that a minimum of 95% of the people will do absolutely nothing. Most of them will not become familiar with the term ‘bail-in’ until it is already too late. We can’t do a thing about that. What is most depressing is that of the numerous people we have talked to who actually understand what is going on, the vast majority of them have also done nothing. Now is not the time to have that deer in the headlights, over analysis paralysis mindset.

Think Your Money is Safe in an Insured Bank Account? Think Again / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

A trend to shift responsibility for bank losses onto blameless depositors lets banks gamble away your money.

When Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem told reporters on March 13, 2013, that the Cyprus deposit confiscation scheme would be the template for future European bank bailouts, the statement caused so much furor that he had to retract it. But the “bail in” of depositor funds is now being made official EU policy. On June 26, 2013, The New York Times reported that EU finance ministers have agreed on a plan that shifts the responsibility for bank losses from governments to bank investors, creditors and uninsured depositors.

Gambling Banksters - How Many Warnings Do You Need? / Politics / Banksters

By: Rudy_Avizius

If you knew someone with a gambling problem, you probably would not give them your money to hold. If you knew that they had placed bets that were 30 to 70 times more than the amount of money they had, you would certainly consider them totally reckless. If you knew that the money they were holding and betting with was with borrowed money, other peoples’ money not their own, you would probably conclude that they are hopelessly addicted to money. Remember these thoughts as you continue to read this article.

Bankers Still Playing Russian Roulette With Someone Else's Head / Politics / Banksters

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Last week, Britain's Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards issued a report that lists a number of recommendations for an overhaul of the country's banking sector. The idea is that Chancellor George Osborne includes them in his Banking Reform Bill, a preliminary draft of which was publicly criticized by the Commission in March.

Whether the government will actually follow the recommendations, however, remains to be seen; PM David Cameron and his cabinet have sung their praises of the City and its importance for Britain's economy on countless occasions. Which looks a little strange at times, especially those times when the state is forced to bail out, save, break up and/or nationalize yet another bank. Lately RBS has been added to the roll, and by now every "High Street" bank must have had some sort of government "treatment". A few CEOs were fired, with Downing Street 10 obviously hoping that would calm the waters. So far, amazingly, it seems to work: it's all bout keeping the customer satisfied. And clueless.

What The Shadow Banking System Knows / Politics / Banksters

By: Andrew_McKillop

GLOBAL REACH
PIMCO's Paul McCulley defines the shadow banking system as follows; “I coined the term “shadow banking system” in August 2007 at the (US) Fed’s annual symposium in Jackson Hole. Unlike conventional regulated banks, unregulated shadow banks fund themselves with uninsured short-term funding, which may or may not be backstopped by liquidity lines from real banks. Since they fly below the radar of traditional bank regulation, these levered-up intermediaries operate in the shadows”, outside the regulated conventional bank system.  Paul McCulley summarized shadow banking as: "The whole alphabet soup of levered up non-bank investment conduits, vehicles and structures". These financial intermediaries operating off the radar screen of international financial regulators were therefore “unknown” to, and credited by the official banking system with a near-zero role in 2002, but were worth about $60 trillion and turnover-wise represented about 25% of the global bank-finance system at end-2011.

BIS Bank Forecasts More Of The Same / Stock-Markets / Banksters

By: Andrew_McKillop

BORROWED MONEY AND LOST TIME

The strange story of the BIS – whose forerunner founded in 1930 was the lynchpin bank of the Third Reich – is well known and heavily documented. Introducing its 83rd annual report for 2013, the Bank for International Settlements strikes a supposedly pragmatic we-can-fix-it tone. Its Overview under the title 'Making the most of borrowed time' says: “Originally forged to describe central banks’ actions to prevent financial collapse, Whatever It Takes has become a rallying cry for them to continue their extraordinary policies”.

Another Reason Not to Trust the Big Banks / Companies / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: When Big Banks say their trading desks posted a profit every single trading day for an entire quarter, it seems hard to believe.

And yet not one but two Big Banks -- JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) and Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) -- recently reported that they had perfect trading records in the first quarter of 2013.

And most days they weren't squeaking by either. A chart of JPMorgan's daily net revenues from the quarter shows that on most days the profits were quite fat -- $50 million or more, with 17 days posting profits of more than $100 million.

Too Big To Fail Banks Certainly Have Not! / Companies / Banksters

By: Sy_Harding

Fair warning – the following may make you sick.

This week the Federal Reserve of St. Louis released a report estimating that Americans on average have recovered only 45% of the wealth they lost during the recession and bear market in stocks. The report notes that much of the recovery in ‘overall’ wealth is thanks to the stock market’s recovery to its previous peaks, and thus is concentrated in the holdings of wealthy families. The report concludes that, “Considering the uneven recovery of wealth across households, claims that the financial damage of the crisis and recession has largely been repaired are not justified.”
