Now another tragic accident that will be spun up out of control to the point that Constitutional freedom #2 will be in danger once again.

To those who dont know, what the LIBOR scandal is. It is basically manipulating the rate of interest that different banks across the world charge each other when they lend money. Thousands of executives and other high ranking bank employees around the world have found a way to fix the numbers so that both parties make extra profits when a loan is made.

I'm no banker myself, so I dont understand all of the details, but I know enough that this is a world-wide white-collar crime operation that may have stolen Trillions of dollars that is unaccountable for...

Now that I have made my point, I want to sincerely say that I am so sorry for the families that have lost their loved ones today. We have to find a way to take the next step in our mental evolution as a species. We have to let go of the age old crutches that have always held humanity back from progress.

This next era that our ever growing technology will help us achieve has the potential to be anything we could possibly imagine come to life. But we are not going to see this wonderful future if we cant let go of hatred and intolerance.

Hard hitting straight to the gut! The truth hurts.


Thanks Rippadonn, This video captures the issue. Not that most care. Many that do care are against any reform for their own blind ideological or selfish reasons.

Look no further than government deregulation as the cause of this financial manipulation by the largest Western Banks that colluded with one another to manipulate the LIBOR rate and increase their profits and bonuses off the backs of the American and European consumers.

This is a replay of energy deregulation last decade on a much grander scale. ENRON employees toyed with California energy consumers by intentionally shutting down power plants during peak hours to drive up the cost of electricity to astronomical levels that cost the Governor of California his job. Their illegal behavior ultimately led to the destruction of ENRON and the imprisonment of many of their employees.

The large banks and their corrupt employees/leadership deserve the same fate as ENRON. It will likely take another world financial collapse before most citizens wake up to the rampant corruption of our financial industry.

Our political representatives will not take the required action now because they have for the most part been captured/bribed by the financial industry/Wall Street special interests they are supposed to regulate.

The Republican House of Representatives recently voted to dramatically cut the funding of financial watchdog agencies in an attempt to roll back/limit the few recent tepid reforms.

Unbelievably there are still plenty on here that will continue to say we need to deregulate Wall Street even more. Clearly they are blinded by self interest or dependent on information coming from one of the 6 remaining giant media conglomerates (made possible thru, you guessed it, government deregulation) that control most of our news and are in large part mouthpieces for industry.

Ben Fulford (August 7 2012) ~ Summer Stalemate Continues But Lots Going On Under The Surface In Preparation For Autumn Regime Changes

War and rumors of war continue to be promoted by terrorist states like the US, Israel and their secret ally Iran as the desperate criminal cabal that seized power in the West continues to hope they can trigger World War 3 and thus avoid bankruptcy. There are also continuing rumors of horrific new terrorist attacks by the cabal and their “Al CIAda” subsidiary (a nuclear attack on London being one possibility) in a desperate attempt to implement their plan for a fascist New World Order world government.

Their desperation and cynicism has reached the point that corporate propaganda media outlets do not even seem to notice as they report their governments are fighting “Al Qaeda” in Afghanistan even as they finance it in Syria and Libya.

The 150 nations BRICS alliance, for its part, continues to refuse to support terrorist financing groups like the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve Board and is instead promoting the universal human goals of peaceful, environmentally friendly development.

Under the surface, meanwhile, power struggles continue in preparation for regime changes in China, the US and the EU this fall.

The cabal controlled Western governments are beating the war drums in part as a negotiating strategy first to get them past the September 31 fiscal half-year financial deadline and second to strengthen their hand in ongoing negotiations about the new financial system.

The situation for many Western governments is similar to that of an individual trying to postpone an inevitable bankruptcy. In this case, instead of bills piling up, all sorts of countries are trying to cash real bonds issued by members of the Western banking cartel only to run into a wall of excuses and delays.

For example, when an international group of investors tried to cash a large amount of Brazilian bonds recently, some key lawyers involved suddenly got violently ill while others recused themselves following death threats. The bonds are real but that does not help their case.

In Japan meanwhile, in addition to the 7000 trillion yen sitting frozen in the Bank of Japan’s computers, another 5000 trillion yen batch of bonds has turned up. The 5000 trillion yen worth of bonds in question were issued in the 1970’s when Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka of Japan restored diplomatic relations with China, according to Chinese government sources. Tanaka offered the money to China’s Zhou Enlai but he refused to accept them and said the Japanese people should use the money instead. These bonds then went into limbo but an Asian group now has them and is planning to cash them at the Bank of Japan and use the money for humanitarian projects.

Other large denomination US dollar gold backed bonds have also surfaced. The owners welcome legal scrutiny of these bonds because they are confident they are genuine, sources close to the owners say. This group would also like to use the bonds for humanitarian purposes.

Once again though, all they will be doing is to bring a real bill to a dead beat borrower.

The fact of the matter is that although these bonds are all real, the amounts of money involved are too big for it to be possible to simply cash them.

A Rockefeller family representative is now in Asia trying to come up with a solution that staves off the Federal Reserve Board bankruptcy that cashing the bonds would involve. Instead the bond holders would be given “realistic” sums of money in exchange for allowing massive humanitarian projects to be undertaken by Western interests.

The White Dragon Society, for its part, has been invited to send a representative to North Korea to try to sort out the situation in the Korean peninsula and Japan in a harmonious manner. The visit is expected to take place in August but may be delayed until September depending on what preliminary Tokyo negotiations conclude.

The new regime in North Korea is ready for a fundamental change in relations with the West and their Japanese and South Korean puppet regimes. The Japanese and South Koreans are also preparing for independence from the West meaning that the biggest changes in East Asia since the end of World War 2 are becoming a very realistic possibility.

Desperate cabal war-mongering over tiny little disputed islands may inflame a few hot-heads on all sides but is unlikely to derail anything. As the central Asian saying puts it “the dogs bark but the caravan rolls on.”

In any case, no real breakthrough is expected during the summer months. Instead, negotiations, punctuated by the occasional bouts of shouting and threats, will continue until at least September.

In other news, the murder trial of Gu Kailai, the wife of suspended Chinese politburo power broker Bo Xilai is expected to return a guilty verdict followed by a suspended death sentence, a Chinese official said. Gu Kailai was charged in the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood in an affair now known as the “Wang Lijun Incident.”

There is a good possibility that Bo Xilai himself may be cleared of wrongdoing at the trial and that could pave the way for his return to the higher rungs of Chinese power, a Chinese government official said.

However, a smooth regime change in China is still expected to take place as scheduled in November with Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang taking over from Hu Jintao and Wen Jiaobao. In addition, two-thirds of the top several hundred leaders in China are expected to be replaced by younger people during the transition. This will be the biggest change in China’s government in over a decade and will lead to a major change in style and perhaps substance too.

Regime change in the US is also due in November but the leadership change is expected to be messier than in China. If the corporate government remains in power then the faction supporting Obama and the faction supporting Romney will duke it out in a giant battle of dollars and propaganda. However, the US could also go into revolutionary mode in which case all bets are off.

Regime change is also expected in Europe this fall but it will be a change in the financial, rather than the political regime. What happens there depends in large part on the esoteric financial negotiations going on between Asia and the West over the summer.

Standard Chartered Shares Dip on Laundering Allegations

Shares of Standard Chartered bank have tumbled in Hong Kong despite the bank denying allegations that it illegally "schemed" with Iran to launder money.

Its shares fell as much as 7.5% to HK$174 in early trade.

The New York State Department of Financial Services said the bank laundered as much as $250bn (£161bn) over nearly a decade.

It said the bank hid transactions for "Iranian financial institutions" that were subject to US economic sanctions.

The regulator said that Standard Chartered had hidden 60,000 such secret transactions.

However, the bank denied the allegations saying that it "strongly rejects the position or portrayal of facts as set out in the order" issued by the regulator.

Rogue institution?

The US regulators labelled UK-based Standard Chartered a "rogue institution" and ordered the bank to "explain these apparent violations of law" from 2001 to 2010.

The regulator also said that it would hold a formal hearing over the "assessment of monetary penalties". The bank has also been threatened with having its US banking licence revoked.

However, the bank said the order issued by the US regulator did not present "a full and accurate picture of the facts".

It said that it had conducted a review of its transactions, primarily those relating to Iran for the period between 2001 to 2007 and had given regular updates to the US authorities on the results of the investigation.

"As we have disclosed to the authorities, well over 99.9% of the transactions relating to Iran complied with U-turn regulations," the bank said.

"The total value of transactions which did not follow the U-turn was under $14m."

Penelope Lepeudry, managing director of Kroll Advisory Solutions, a consulting firm specialising in financial investigations, told the BBC that "if the allegations are confirmed this is a very serious development".

"The regulators are not going to be merely convinced by a statement from the bank - they need to see the details," she said.

"The bank will need to open up its books and back the statements with facts."

Other schemes found

The allegations are far larger than those involving HSBC, which was recently accused by the US Senate of failing to prevent money laundering from countries around the world including Mexico and Iran.

It has set aside $700m to deal with any fines and penalties arising from those allegations.

The regulator said it had also uncovered evidence with respect to what are apparently similar schemes to conduct business with other countries under sanctions - Libya, Burma and Sudan.

"Investigation of these additional matters is ongoing," it added.

The regulator said that its nine-month probe, which involved looking through more than 30,000 ages of documents, including Standard Chatered Bank (SCB) emails, showed that the bank reaped "hundred of millions of dollars in fees".

"SCB's actions left the US financial system vulnerable to terrorists, weapons dealers, drug kingpins and corrupt regimes, and deprived law enforcement investigators of crucial information used to track all manner of criminal activity," it said.

'Staggering cover-up'

The bank was also accused of falsifying Swift wire payment directions by stripping the message of unwanted data that showed the clients were Iranian, replacing it with false entries.

Senior management were also said to have codified their illegal procedures in formal operating manuals, including one labelled "Quality Operating Procedure Iranian Bank Processing".

"It provided step-by-step wire stripping instructions for any payment messages containing information that would identify Iranian clients," the complaint said.

In numerous emails going back as far as 1995, the bank's lawyers advised on ways to go about circumventing US sanctions.

In March 2001, Standard Chartered's legal advisor counselled that "our payment instructions [for Iranian clients] should not identify the client or the purpose of the payment".

By 2006, there were concerns raised about the bank's conduct in its New York branch.

The chief executive for the Americas sent an email to London saying the programme needs to "evaluate if its returns and strategic benefits are... still commensurate with the potential to cause very serious or even catastrophic reputational damage to the group".

But those warnings were ignored by senior management in London in what the regulator called a "staggering cover-up".

Among the violations of the law, the bank is accused of:

  • falsifying business records
  • failing to maintain accurate books and records
  • failing to report misconduct to the regulator in a timely manner
  • evading Federal sanctions
The US Treasury, which implements the sanctions, said that it "treats sanctions violations extremely seriously".

Stunning Crimes of the Big Banks: Worse than Your Wildest Imagination

Preface: Not all banks are criminal enterprises. The wrongdoing of a particular bank cannot be attributed to other banks without proof. But – as documented below – many of the biggest banks have engaged in unimaginably bad behavior.

You won't believe what they've done...

Here are just some of the improprieties by big banks:

The executives of the big banks invariably pretend that the hanky-panky was only committed by a couple of low-level rogue employees. But studies show that most of the fraud is committed by management.

Indeed, one of the world’s top fraud experts – professor of law and economics, and former senior S&L regulator Bill Black – says that most financial fraud is “control fraud”, where the people who own the banks are the ones who implement systemic fraud. See this, this and this.

But at least the big banks do good things for society, like loaning money to Main Street, right?

Actually:We can almost understand why Thomas Jefferson warned:


And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies ….


John Adams said:


Banks have done more injury to religion, morality, tranquillity, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they have done or ever will do good.


And Lord Acton argued:

The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.

Rumor has it that the Post Office would become our new banks thus eliminating the need for them to hold assets. The same source also said that when the criminals are gone people will have access to these huge accounts through their local post office.

I posted this a couple pages back...which I feel is a pretty good overview by David Wilcock of the on-going saga and its progress:

The Great Revealing: US Marshals Expose Biggest Scandal in History

It's pretty lengthy...but then again this entire subject is very complex and goes very deep...so its kinda hard to avoid that haha.
