GS, say it isn't so

JPM, it cannot be

Blackstone, I say NO, they are righteous bankers. To wit: "better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer"

Carlyle, WTF; is this some sort of a smear campaign?


all the above, notwithstanding the huffpuke citation

frozen accounts can't be withdrawn. so the billions just sit there to the benefit of the banks. so don't you think it was the banks that ordered the freeze and their puppets just carried out the order.

How much money is the stock in the frozen Egyptian stock market worth?

I think they used to call it dead money.

Better yet, what happens when Egypt and Libya withdraw their money from western banks to spend in their own countries, pay for rebuilding and buy food for their food banks?

More like the ME has learned Western banks can't freeze or confiscate their wealth if they keep the Oil in the ground and raise the price..

Western greed has truly fucked us all..  The age of Oil is over.

Bankers and politicians sucking greed-dick while trying to rationalize being whores because of the "free market" all the while throwing other people's children to the dogs of war to take the bullets.

Do not forget about the biggest bailout of them all -

Best line I read from another post:

Bankers are government sponsored terrorists.

That is a fact.

With Libya now being a "non-state", this is almost like declaring that it is open season for homesteading in Libya.  There has never been a better time to grab an entire country than now.  I am just wondering, there must be some similarity to the United States and pre-World War II Germany.  Perhaps the US will be able to pull off what Germany failed to do... total worldwide domination.

Much cogenter than the current rationale that introduces this money as the Libyan dictator's holdings, therefore justifying the freeze and not as national assets which can be tapped into by the national government to meet its needs.

If this is to be fixed it will only be through passing on our lives of dissent to our children.  The banks have been running all of this for centuries by controlling education, job placement and political leaders.  In a long con that spans generations, you need new surnames to retain control. 

Revolutionaries last one, maybe two generations at most. 

Game, the fuck, over.

Buy silver and gold and watch as they take them back from you and yours.

The rise of Islamic banking in the East will diminish the power of the cartel significantly. I think this is what they fear the most.

The last time I remember when steeling gas from peoples cars was back during the Arab oil embargo. Back then they were into siphoning. Cordless drills were not even in existence back then. This method is much more destructive and disturbing.

Thanks for the everything Bernank.

Gas thieves drilling holes into tanks of parked vehicles

"FORT MILL, SC (WBTV) - Police are looking for thieves who are stealing gasoline by drilling holes into gas tanks of parked vehicles.

The York County Sheriff's Office says there have been five incidents reported in the Baxter Village and Bailiwyck areas of Fort Mill.

The thefts are taking place at night. Some of the victims did not realize that someone had drilled into their gas tanks until the vehicle was at a repair shop. 

The incidents have occurred on Camber Woods Drive, Jones Wade Court, Stafford Run Drive, Lower Assembly Drive, and Glenn Allen Way."

"Peter Dressel told police between 4 p.m. on Jan. 21 and 10 a.m. on Jan. 22, someone went underneath his gray 2006 Ford F-150 and drilled a hole in the tank. The estimated damage to his truck was about $1,400. The thief stole a half tank of gas valued between $42-$48."

If your not following the money changers political agenda, a few bank account key strokes and 24/7 news coverage can destroy any leader. The comedy behind this approach, social networking is utilising the same ploy against the propaganda architects.

+1 billion twits
The brazen use of social media for social engineering has been an absolute masterstroke. The google man in egypt was unbelievable. I laughed so hard at how adoringly he was received.

And so, as disclosures like this roll on by, no one really cares anymore. Same 5-6 banks, ripping the guts of the world while profiting and no one cares.
They will when some twit they follow twitters about it.

Using social and digital media to instigate protests in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, etc. coincides with the Broadcast Board of Governors ( "template" disclosed in their 'Staying Ahead of the Digital Curve; US Global Engagement in the New Media Era' article.  BBG distributes programming in 59 languages via radio, TV, the Internet and "other media" and oversees all U.S. civilian international broadcasting, including the Voice of America (VOA), Radio Free Eurpoe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), Radio Free Asia (RFA), Radio and TV Marti and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks (MBN) Radio Sawa and Alhurra Television.

I second that notion.  Serfs stop buying anything on credit (done), ponzi forces to increase credit till end game collapse.

The only way to win is to drain the squid et all of their lifeblood, credit.

Better add stockpile (not necessarly in that order):
* canned goods
* pasta / rice
* wine (fine wine is always a good asset)
* beer
* deep-forzen goods if you have an alternative power source

P.S. Add water if there isn't any drinkable water source nearby.
P.P.S. If you have enough and still have fiat paper, then silver gold etc.

Back in the Roman days, when Septimus Severus, local son of Leptis Magna, Libyan Colony of Rome, became Emperor, as new Caesar he ordered that all latrines in his beloved home town, not for from actual Tripoli, be made of best Marble, with a super duper plumbing and evacuation system. All the Leptis Magna nobles used to meet on their marble shit seats every morning, sipping their nectar/orange juice, eating their fried eggs on toast, reading the local ZH slate sheet planning their daily buy-sell schedules. It was the thing to do in glorious Leptis Magna. It was the place to be under blessed son, New Rome away from old Roman home.

Our new African born Caesar today probably remembers those good old roman days as he sips his coffee every morning with the same TBTF bankstas who service the current royalty of NEW Leptis Magna, on their Libyan toilet seats. What's changed?

Time to flush the royal family to oblivion. Down their marble hatches. Pronto! And cut the golden nuts of these TBTF bankstas at home, in dirty Wall of shame Street homes. Where they probably dream of benefitting from the ill gotten riches of now falling libyan emperor and family, stashed in their safe tax haven numbered accounts.

Goldman has ties to and works with every government. No big deal there. Goldman has done nothing wrong.

A supposed upstanding director turns out to be a scumbag. That is not a direct indictment of Goldman; it is horrible and horrible publicity, but not the fault of the company.

I would love to see Carlyle lose everything. Unfortunately, if they do, the will go to the US Government and demand that their losses be made whole. And they might be.
