How America’s biggest banks took part in a nationwide bid-rigging conspiracy – until they were caught on tape

Someday, it will go down in history as the first trial of the modern American mafia. Of course, you won’t hear the recent financial corruption case, United States of America v. Carollo, Goldberg and Grimm, called anything like that. If you heard about it at all, you’re probably either in the municipal bond business or married to an antitrust lawyer. [Read more…]
Jon Stewart nailed it on last nights “The Daily Show” when opening his new series titled “How the F#@k is it that Martha Stewart went to jail” when not one Wall Street bankster has been held accountable for the 2008 meltdown that we are still suffering from today. So Martha goes to jail who made dough from an insider tip, yet the entire banking elite goes home to their families every night not feeling even a tiny bit of fear for being arrested for all of their illegal transactions all the while thrusting the entire economy into a meltdown. Unbelievable! [Read more…]
Editor’s Note: Back in 2009, we watched the organic movement of the Tea Party infiltrated and taken over by FreedomWorks, the Koch Brothers and Fox. Today, the public associates the Tea Party efforts to the Republican Party even though the majority of self-identified Tea Partiers consider themselves to be Independents. The take over succeeded in diluting and re channeling these patriots momentum, not b/c they were right or wrong, BUT b/c many of the early supporters no longer wished to give any kind of support to either national party. As an electorate, we’ve grown beyond tired of having to choose b/w two losers, but that is how the establishment works and is a chief reason why a new movement will be born out of “Occupy America”. As we learned from the Republican hijacking of the Tea Party movement, anything that dares to threaten the establishments agenda will be ridiculed, taken over, crushed or simply ignored. Today, it looks like the D’s are swooping in to try and hijack “Occupy America’s” momentum and to refocus the energy to support Obama’s re election campaign agenda. Here’s to hoping they fail, and fail miserably! It’s past time for the people, only the people, to rise up and say enough to the political and financial establishment who are plunging not only America but the world into ruin! To the people of “Occupy America” don’t allow yourselves to be played, because the people of the world have been waiting a long time for American’s to take back our country from the greedy hands of the establishment. They, we, need you to succeed.

Wall Street and London hedge fund tycoon George Soros sent a signal to his minions and infiltrators when he stated that he sympathized with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Soros’s statement dovetailed with David Plouffe, President Obama’s Senior Adviser, making contact with certain newly-minted “leaders” of the “Occupy” movement across the United States to ensure that they are as politically-manipulated by the White House as a vast majority of “Tea Party” members have been manipulated by senior Republican Party officials and the billionaire Koch Brothers.

By far this is the most outstanding investigative report I’ve seen detailing what happened in 2008 resulting in the financial meltdown felt by every person alive today. This is a must watch. Turn off the idiot box and learn what the hell really happened then and how the cycle of destruction continues. (Note: click on headline or scroll down below the fourth video and click on full story to especially view the first two videos. Click on vid bar to enlarge to full screen)
Part 2/4 ‘A GLOBAL FINANCIAL TSUNAMI’
Part 3/4 ‘Paying the Price’
Part 4/4 ‘After the Fall’
And not one of these SOB’s has lost a friggin thing! Not one has spent the first second locked up behind bars! Not one has lost their self gorging of high living because the taxpayer is on the hook to try and pay these debts off! Not one has even admitted or taken any kind of responsibility whatsoever for their own over blown, sociopathic, maniacal hubris! Not one of them! How in the hell does this happen in a just world? It doesn’t, because our world, as constructed by these same mad men, is not one that is just.
The T-Room will post the remaining segments to this investigation as they become available.
Here is AJ’s schedule – “Meltdown is a four-part investigation that takes a closer look at the people who brought down the financial world. It can be seen on Al Jazeera English from Tuesday, September 20, at the following times GMT: Tuesday: 2000; Wednesday: 1200; Thursday: 0100; Friday: 0600; Saturday: 2000; Sunday: 1200; Monday: 0100; Tuesday: 0600.”

What the heck is going on these days with the banks? More and more issues are arising with our nations banks causing concern for the investing public.
On August 17, 2009 I wrote an article entitled The Banking Crisis is Far From Over. I wanted to make people aware of what was really going on in the banking industry as it is this sector of the economy that keeps the Federal Reserve illusion of stability alive. If the People lost faith in the banking system, we would sink into a depression. From the article; [Read more…]
This week on Tuesday’s Keiser Report –
“This week Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, notice that looking back is not an option when all the evidence is destroyed by the SEC and Max tries to explain the gold / Treasury conundrum. In the second half of the show Max talks to Catherine Austin Fitts about exponential fraud and the financial coup d’etat.”

In case you missed Taibbi’s report, here it is Is the SEC Covering Up Wall Street Crimes?
A whistle-blower claims that over the past two decades, the agency has destroyed records of thousands of investigations, whitewashing the files of some of the nation’s worst financial criminals.
More interviews available at DemocracyNow!
This week Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, look at how quantitative easing is good for the rich, bad for the poor and how sterling is offering no refuge. In the second half of the show Max talks to Richard Heinberg, author of The End of Growth, about the role of energy in the current debt crisis.

Great show today. Stacy tee’s it up with several examples of how kid’s who are looting are punished vs the Ivy League banksters who looted all don’t even get investigated let alone charged of any crime. Two sets of laws – one for the peasants and another for the criminal “elite” class. Following Stacy’s piece, Max talks to former bank regulator, William K. Black, who made sure the Savings & Loan bankster thugs paid for their “looting” yours and my pocket.
Following Friday night’s credit rating announcement by S & P Chairman John Chambers, the T-Room will be capturing and posting hotlinks throughout the day to capture the market’s reaction.
Some in the industry have termed today as “Bloody Monday” which by all accounts appears appropriate given the headlines already appearing and it’s only 10:06 am.
To give you a bit more context as to what is happening and how Congress seems to be benefitting personally from all of this, we kick off this post with a “Government Gone Wild” video highlighting those congress critters, who are now on the “List” and the millions they are making to enrich themselves by betting on your losses – [Read more…]

(Part one of a four-part series)
The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.
According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.
So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks?
This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. This is rather ironic, since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.
One important repository for the wealth of the global oligarchy that owns these bank holding companies is US Trust Corporation – founded in 1853 and now owned by Bank of America. A recent US Trust Corporate Director and Honorary Trustee was Walter Rothschild. Other directors included Daniel Davison of JP Morgan Chase, Richard Tucker of Exxon Mobil, Daniel Roberts of Citigroup and Marshall Schwartz of Morgan Stanley. 
J. W. McCallister, an oil industry insider with House of Saud connections, wrote in The Grim Reaper that information he acquired from Saudi bankers cited 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank- by far the most powerful Fed branch- by just eight families, four of which reside in the US. They are the Goldman Sachs, Rockefellers, Lehmans and Kuhn Loebs of New York; the Rothschilds of Paris and London; the Warburgs of Hamburg; the Lazards of Paris; and the Israel Moses Seifs of Rome.
