Some of WikiLeaks' Bank of America Data Destroyed

Some internal Bank of America files obtained by WikiLeaks have been destroyed, according to a former close collaborator of Julian Assange, the whistleblowing website's founder.

In an email to Reuters, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who last year was fired by Assange as WikiLeaks' co-spokesman, confirmed that he had destroyed "roundabout" 3,000 submissions WikiLeaks received related to Bank of America.

U.S. Bank Earnings Up From A Year Ago

U.S. bank earnings continue to increase but the trend is mostly due to institutions setting aside less to guard against losses, a top regulator said on Tuesday.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp said that the industry earned $28.8 billion in the second quarter, a $7.9 billion increase from a year before.


Who said that the Debt Ceiling being raised was a bad thing? QE1 and QE2 worked really well!!

How about re-testing 1050?

Is Dick Bove just a bonehead, or a liar/cheerleader?

Dick says BAC is smack with capital and "deposits pouring in" ... - WTF...?

If the latter is true, who's depositing? The Bernank or the sheeple?

Dick is mostly a bonehead, which makes the lying/cheerleading easier, since you don't have those pangs of conscience bugging you while the camera's on. The only "deposits" at BofA would be the steaming turds left by the front door of newly ex-customers.

Honestly, that was one junior-varsity display of public relations skill if I've ever seen one.    Target all weapons and fire at will.

I think another 50 billion shares priced at $2 would suffice for 1 or 2 years more.  Could always R/S 10:1 to make it look respectable later.

If your deposits are under $250,000 then you won't even notice the bank failed. It will take a second at the same branch you always go to but with a different name.


ps. These deposits held at BAC are actually their liability. They are swimming in deposits that they can't/won't loan out so this would be helping their Capital Ratios.

Bank of America will NOT be allowed to fail, and will be bailed out at the global taxpayers' expenses.

Au contraire!  The depositors will be covered by FDIC and if need be taxpayers.  Banking services will persist at BofA, but stockholders, preferred and otherwise, will NOT be bailed this time.  Bond holders in some jeopardy too, but less as the banking entity will live on.  Small percentage that it will actually be nationalized if European authorities go that route.

Uh... Sorry, the FDIC does not have the funds to cover BofA's deposits. If taxpayers cover this, there will be massive consequences. What will most likely happen is BofA will be dismantled with another big bank buying up the "good assets" while the rest are, dare I say, guaranteed by the Fed or Treasury and sold in smaller tranches to investors. Should this come to fruition, BofA will be dead and gone.
