On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

On a long enough timeline, Eric PlaceHolder does something?

Guarantee you that Jamie Dimon is behind whatever moves come next. That Jamie Dimon; some say he's sharp. I say I'll outperform his corrupt ass any day of the week if given half the inside information he gets from his peeps (e.g. The Bernank).

I sure that you're wrong about the Jamie Dimon conspiracy theory.  That being said, it is about time for Bank of America to visit the proctologist.  The surprising finding will be that it is all ass and no head.

JohnG's picture

Just how are you associating Dimon with BOA?

Do tell.

TruthInSunshine's picture

I'm associating Jamie by way of the fact that he's got an inside track on major happenings, seemingly before anyone else who is an "investor" knows.

A major happening would be severe carnage at BofA, an institution holding 40% of Americans' savings and cash equivalent deposits.

The impetus of my emphasis wasn't as literate as it should have been in my original post.

JohnG's picture

Ahhhh, and here I was thinking you had your criminals confused.

I'm sure you're right that JPM is the govt's favorite bank excepting the fed of course.

So what does he know do you think?

Alienated Serf's picture


tis from the NY Attorney general, not placeholder.  Do you think placeholder would actyually do anything?

Placeholder will neutralize anything the pesky NYAG does anyway.

TruthInSunshine's picture

This is a good point, AS.

Eric Placeholder has been a major cock blocker for anyone seeking just restitution from the playas and TBTF inner sanctum on Wall Street, and his cock blocking ways will probably continue unless Obama decides he needs some very major, very visible sacraficial lambs to get re-elected (and this presumes Obama has control over those playas, when the reverse is more likely the case).

placeholder/obama are champions of non-prosecution/self regulation (as detailed by taibbi).

I am glad to see his nickname catching traction, props.  I got that from the Washington CityPaper which is politically barely to the right of the Village Voice.

You can see downthread how they ARE going to go after WFC and BAC for the fact that blacks DEFAULTED on their loans.  When it is white borrowers, it's NINJA and deadbeats that these banks falsified shit- it's all on the borrowers.  When it's black borrowers, it  beez scriminashuns that they DIDN'T lend and then scriminashuns when they DID lend and had to NINJA the docs to make the loan happen.  And if FICO (which doesn't know race) or even traffic cameras are catching blacks with lower scores and higher ticket rates, then they beez rayciss too.

Every single failure of any black is the fault of YT scriminashuns.  It's a civil rights case that broke blacks that shouldn't have been lent to defaulted on subprime loans.  Just like it was a civil rights case that the banks refused to lend to people with documented failures to repay credit.

Hey Anders - 

It's nice to know the Norwegians have internet access from their jails.  Are we going to be blessed with more of your racist shit all day today?





trav7777's picture

hey fuckface-

you'll get more respect around here if you actually refute points with facts, instead of resorting to that BS which will only get you laughed at.

Nobody respects your cries of "DAT BE RAYCISS"

BAC should go to 8.80, low 8-handle (maybe 8.20).  If this does NOT hold the decline, 6.80 to 7.05/10 area will attract buyers.  Moynihan has only about 6-9, maybe 12-15 months to really convince the Street, before pressure from large shareholders demand the Board replace him. He will become the "scapegoat" and will resign for "personal reasons" (the Board will give him a 8-10MM retirement package).  Here is the interesting part.  We believe Sally Krawcheck will replace Moynihan (and currently, is quietly being groomed or moved around for such possibility).  New developments shall begin to unfold itself by year-end (maybe even within the next few months sooner).

quick robo. go short  BAC...........:)

buzzsaw99's picture

You can tell that BAC isn't in "the club".

GeneMarchbanks's picture

You meant "tha club" of course, remember, these are bankstas...

I'm sure their assets will gladly be taken over by ______ in a sorta move reminiscent of of the good'ol Lehman days.


el Gallinazo's picture

Yeah. It's time for another big feed. The Bear and Lehman just exited from the hindquarters of the great New York Anaconda. After BOA, I see Morgan Stanley as next on the buffet, and then probably Wells. I hope there are some Japanese directors still on their feet despite radiation poisoning to film the last epic, The Morgue meets the Squid. Guaranteed to be a thrilla.

High Plains Drifter's picture

that is why they were made to buy countryslide .........etc

besides their headquarters is not in new york either.........

How bad can it be when nobody goes to prison?  The fine will be approximately 1/5 of the crime, only to be passed on to the public (again) through more gov't tolerated/sponsored shenanigans.  Party on right?

Gubbmint Cheese's picture

The fine will be 1/5 1/5000th of the crime..

I fixed your typo treemagnet.. :)

Repeat [fraud analysis] for Citi, Goldman, et al. = guilty = crash.

Global Hunter's picture

Other banks with better political connections are salivating and dividing up the "good" assets and divisions as we speak.  The "bad" assets will be bought by the government.  Easy fix

Snidley Whipsnae's picture

And we get Countrywide... in an around about fashion.

moneymutt's picture

and what should have happened with Coutnrywide...bankrupty...with scorned creditors going after Mozillo's person assets like locusts based on fraud....instead, we the taxpayers, who never bought any of CWs fraudulent commercial paper get to pay...does not matter which party is in charge both require little guy to face music, financially and in courts if they committ a crime, while big guys profit and never see bars.

I love it when banks fight with each other. Maybe we can chip in and get them some chainsaws to play with.

treemagnet's picture

Wonder if they realize they've joined their own "fight club"

Or maybe they will just do this!!! (h/t Steve Quayle)

Crash on..

BAC never was a founding member of TPTB and the old money trust banks that started the Fed.

snowball777's picture

Aww..tiny violins just for them. The Bank of Lynching America Countrywide is still a cartel in every state in the union and should be treated as such.

I am a Man I am Forty's picture

Yep, BAC is a shit organization of thieves in suits, i can speak from experience

Cdad's picture

Oh no!  You mean criminal syndicate bankers are in trouble with the law?  

10,000 pink slips from Blight on America bank, please.

DaveyJones's picture

speaking of international criminal bankers, have you seen Keiser's piece on Greece.

High Plains Drifter's picture

attack on the metals has started this morning .........of course.........

apberusdisvet's picture

The plan is already set in stone; JPM and GS divide up the good assets; the public will eat the trillions in liability/toxic assets.  Charlotte NC based companies are not in the proper loop.

Seize, Liquidate and Revoke all TBTF banks' charters

Never again will the criminal syndicate be allowed to usurp the labor of hardworking Americans to swindle profit.

Once these banks are removed from existence a new banking system will take its place that rewards investors that choose to save.

The Federal Reserve will only exist as a check clearing agency and the US Treasury will guarantee all deposits redeemable in Gold or Silver.

That will go along way to reviving the American economy and will protect both investors and consumers better than any central planning agency

Temporalist's picture

Blythe you should know that "never again" has been said many times before in the past.

trav7777's picture

gold and silver standards are all that the Founders could come up with to try to ward off the depradations of the bankers in Europe

baby_BLYTHE's picture

Gold & Silver have a vast history (thousands of years) preceeding the Bank of England and the American Revolution.

Hard money never really had its chance in the US. The first central bank was established only a few short years after the signing of the Constitution.

In real terms, US currency never lost its purchasing power (even gained) up until the creation of the Federal Reserve due to the severe bouts deflation that occured during the 18th century. Gold & Silver were largely responsible for this.

trav7777's picture

everyone knows that, as well as the history of jiggering with the G/S ratio to move flows of metal, the Sterling Bill, and the history of debasement and tokenization/demonetization even in pure metals standards.

The point really is that the banking system of usury seems inexorable.  It almost requires a religious prohibition to stop it.

I've had my eye on a vacant home for over 900 days now. It's a BAC property that I'm sure reflects alot of what this bankster is holding. I wonder if now they'll submit to my offer to take it off their hands?
