@ Michael Victory

Is that the same "Ford Foundation" that employed Barry's mother in Indonesia? The same "Ford Foundation" that employed Timmay's dad (Peter Geithner) in Indonesia, who just happened to be Barry's mom's boss at the time?

This is About Covering Up Corruption.

For those of us Chicago denizens or ex-pats, it's common knowledge that ShoreBank has been a facilitator of political shenanigans and money flows (probably much of a more than questionable ilk) which with the purchase and receivership by the FDIC any records related thereto simply disappear into the bowels of the US Government, never ever to be seen again.

Try Rezko, SEIU and the myriad associated powers that be in Chicago and by extension the entire state of Illinois including the machine's every last single elected representative in DC.

A potential source of embarrassment has with the strike of a pen, disappeared.  Why else would an institution is such dire straights have been labored over so assiduously from such high governmental levels aided by the standard cast of financial enablers when it should have otherwise just have been another participant on the FDIC's failure list?  Why the angst and machinations?

And of course, all banks seized by the FDIC are immune from FOIA requests to "protect the confidential nature of the bank's customers" which is very convenient now that Ravens Wood Bank and ShoreBank, the two institutions that had ties to El Presidente are now under FDIC protection. Gee, no reason to think that there's any funny business going on, no way!

Back on ShoreBank for a minute more before we get too distracted by the anal retentive qualities of Bwaney & Maxine...it was late and I wasn't sure I could trust my eyes...but it's true...

William Farrow, the COO & President of ShoreBank at the time of it's collapse is the President of Urban Partnership Bank the aquiring bank? 

Nothing like taxpayers being slapped in the face and law enforcement seeing the whole thing and approving of it before the assault.

Maxine did not qualify for teller since she had trouble differentiating between a $5 FRN and a $100 FRN.  Claims she can only think about money in terms of billions and trillions.  So, thru Affirmative Action she became CEO.

All the while the banksters are collecting monthly mortgage payments from the silent majority of taxpayers --- eventhough their property values have shrunk --- and may be underwater -- if they ever went out on the market to sell

 

The banksters collect and if the mortgage payers stop paying on a losing investment they are declared credit risks ----the scarlet letters "CR"-- by the very same banksters and rating agencies that got us all into the mess in the first place

Meanwhile taxes and currency debasing are used to line the pockets of the corrupt system

 

Mic 6:10-13
10 Am I still to forget, O wicked house,
your ill-gotten treasures
and the short ephah, which is accursed?
11 Shall I acquit a man with dishonest scales,
with a bag of false weights?
12 Her rich men are violent;
her people are liars
and their tongues speak deceitfully.
13 Therefore, I have begun to destroy you,
to ruin you because of your sins.

Rev 6:5-6

5 When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6 Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

"Bunny rabbits, butterflies, soft fluffy clouds, clear clean water, April showers, budding flowers, unicorns shitting rainbow colored skittles,"

is probably the funniest damn thing I've seen around here in awhile...LOL.

Can I get a primal scream for no big screen TV miraculously appearing in living rooms across America, mortgage payments being paid by someone else (no scratch that) and  tanks being filled with gasoline as if by magic?

No problem.  I hear FOX has a documentary guy who could do it.  You know, the one who single-handedly brought down ACORN.  That should cover about a week's worth of newsworthiness.

Then, and only then, can you read posts here.  Why? B/C in the comming months, well, you'll want to keep the food internal, and projo won't do.  For several reasons.

But, projo will come,  and, well, you'll need to keep that machine alive.

In other words, Wall Street's core banks could have come up with any bid they wanted, and the FDIC would have had no choice but to fund the difference, because the alternative would be, gasp, so much scarier.

Um... Wall Street's core banks *did* come up with any bid they wanted.

There was only one bid.

And twelve banks colluded conspired cooperated to split the carcass.

Oh, and wait until Denninger starts chewing on this (which at this point is imminent).

He's long complained (rightly so, as has William Black) that if the FDIC followed the Prompt Corrective Action Law (the law, as in "their job"), then it would be impossible to close a bank with a loss to the taxpayer (because banks are supposed to be shut down the moment they breach minimum capital reserve requirements).  The fact that they breach capital reserve requirements, and then breach solvency (resulting in a taxpayer loss), can only mean the banks committed fraud in reporting their financial position, which should mean jail time for somebody.

Exactly.
