    Brian Butcher, a history teacher at Ballou High School, sat in the bleachers of the school’s brand new football field last June watching 164 seniors receive diplomas. It was a clear, warm night, and he was surrounded by screaming family and friends snapping photos and cheering. It was a triumphant moment for the students. For the first time, every Ballou graduate applied and was accepted to college. The school is located in one of D.C.’s poorest neighborhoods; it has struggled academically for years and has had a chronically low graduation rate. In 2016, the school graduated only 57 percent of...

    WAMU | August 21, 2016
    WAMU’s Bluegrass Country History and Origins From 1967 through today, WAMU has been a proud supporter of bluegrass music and its culture, which has been part of the Washington region for many years. A large migration from Appalachia occurred during the 1940s, making Washington the capital of a blossoming bluegrass music scene. Bluegrass became a defining sound for many in the area and, by the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, was a hotbed for musicians such as Buzz Busby, Leon Morris, The Country Gentlemen, and later, the Seldom Scene and Johnson Mountain Boys. Bluegrass music had a limited presence on commercial...

    Meet the woman JPMorgan Chase paid one of the largest fines in American history to keep from talking By Matt Taibbi | November 6, 2014 "It was like watching an old lady get mugged on the street," she says. "I thought, 'I can't sit by any longer.'" Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing. Back in 2006, as a...

    Michigan Supremem Court Syllabus ^ | 12/21/2012 | Robert P. Young Jr.
    KIM v JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, NA ..... The Court of Appeals, DONOFRIO, P.J., and STEPHENS and RONAYNE KRAUSE, JJ., reversed, concluding that because defendant was not the original mortgagee and had acquired the loan by assignment rather than by operation of law, defendant was obligated under MCL 600.3204(3) to record the assignment of plaintiffs’ mortgage to it before foreclosing by advertisement. The Court of Appeals determined that defendant’s failure to record the assignment rendered the sheriff’s sale void ab initio. 295 Mich App 200 (2012). The Supreme Court granted defendant’s application for leave to appeal. 491 Mich 915 (2012). In...

    CNBC ^ | 13 Apr 2010
    Former Washington Mutual Chief Executive Kerry Killinger on Tuesday said regulators unfairly seized the Seattle-based thrift in September 2008 and sold it to JPMorgan Chase for a bargain price of $1.9 billion. In prepared testimony before the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, Killinger said that, while the company suffered from rising loan losses, it was working its way through the financial crisis. Killinger, who was paid more than $100 million between 2003 and 2008, was forced out in 2008. The subcommittee is holding the first of four hearings on the causes and consequences of the financial crisis. Killinger and other...

    Seeking Alpha ^ | 10/30/09 | Truth and Transparency
    "Ballet among the Carcasses" There are many who see the large banks (Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase) and quasi-government agencies (FDIC, OTS, Federal Reserve Bank of New York) as an operating cartel within our country.  There has always been a wary eye towards the relationship between these institutions and their secrecy but the events of 2008 shed light on not only the nepotistic course that creates a network of insiders (creating obvious conflicts of interest), the light revealed favoritism and what some would say was outright collusion between the organizations to ensure that selected bankers remained in business. That introductory...

    HOUSTON, March 14, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ ----Washington Mutual shareholders (Stock Symbols: WAMUQ, WAHUQ, WAMPQ, WAMKQ) and WamuTruth.com staff were shocked to discover on Friday that Brian Rosen, council for WMI, has agreed to a proposed "settlement" with JP Morgan and the FDIC of all outstanding litigation and claims without consultation or discussion with the Official Equity Committee of Washington Mutual. This unprecedented surrender involves giving away all of the company's rightful assets and claims for a pittance to the detriment of all equity stakeholders in the company. This proposed settlement was clearly done with no regard to the rights...

    A listener to Washington, DC's news talk radio station WAMU - 88.5FM (an NPR station) wrote the following today in the D.C. Radio & Television web site's Mailbag section (www.dcrtv.com)-- "Dear DCRTV: Diane Rehm on her 01/22/10 10am domestic politics show on WAMU said that "Republicans have wanted to kill Obama from the time he was elected." None of the guests said a word in response. Is Diane getting too old for the show or is she just showing her true colors? Her comment deserves some media attention. It's outrageous.
