The bankers and Wall Street equivalents are people making wild bets knowing that their gov’ts will cover them at our expense

Agreed. The term "investor" has lost its meaning long ago. The markets are not "investing" in anything anymore. They are tics attached to the Central Banking and taxpayer host. A rumor is floated regarding a DOJ small fine that lets criminals off the hook, and stocks soar. False unemployment numbers are released, the markets soar. Parasites.

You are probably correct. Also, they have had to manipulate the price of gold and silver down. They need it right now in order to stabilize things until they go crazy. But that is also why those in the know, banking in governments, or hoarding gold. For the rest of us, it will be another executive order, like 1933, that outlines the possession, transfer, and sale of gold.

Penalties for the US' sub prime mortgage crisis socked banks w/ Billions of dollars in Fines ......

So what did the US govt do w/ all the fines? Read on.

Let me begin by saying, IMHO, Hillary screwed-up bigtime when she stupidly said about the sub-prime mtge crisis to score political points: "Donald laughed at people losing their homes."

Fact is---people lost their homes and Obama and the Democrats colluded, extorted tax dollars, and aided and abetted fraud--- to make sure Hillary benefited from the sub-prime mtge crisis.

BACKSTORY---Obama and Congressional Democrats----w/ then-AG Eric Holder----gave NeighborWorks America (formerly ACORN), and blood-thirsty La Raza a huge funding source for 2016 voter fraud......our tax dollars. The colluders extorted banks thru DOJ litigation/bank settlements----and the loot went to nefarious liberal organizations known for voter fraud schemes.


Achieving Obama's dream of a permanent Democrat majority.

<><> Obama/Holder/Dems extorted banks via DOJ litigation/bank settlements----into paying off these nefarious organizations. <><>

DOJ went after CitiCorp and ordered them to pay $50 million to La Raza and NeighborWorks America as part of the settlement.

Another clause in the agreement makes it possible for La Raza and NeighborWorks America to rake in even larger amounts of money.

Of the remaining money the banks needed to pay in settlements, the banks were able to contribute additional money to La Raza and NeighborWorks America. For every dollar they contribute, it reduces their debt to the government by 2 dollars. That’s some mighty powerful incentive to give generously.


House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling have questioned why this money was sent to the ACORN clone and the blood-thirsty LaRaza----rather than to the alleged victims of the bank’s crime. The administration of course declined to answer.

Here's part of the Congressmen's letter to Holder: “It seems that the alleged victims are not the primary beneficiaries of these multi-billion dollar settlements. Instead, the terms in the Justice Department’s two latest settlements look less like consumer relief and more like a scheme to funnel money to politically favored special interest groups.”

“This makes donations to activist groups far more attractive to banks than providing direct relief to injured consumers. As a result, the settlements appear to serve as a vehicle for funding activist groups rather than as a means of securing relief for consumers actually harmed.”


So now, with tons of money to fix the presidential election, the largest and most successful voter fraud campaign may alter the course of the elections not to mention the future of the United States.

A BIT MORE ON THE MASSIVE SUB-PRIME MORTGAGE FRAUD From a 2009 Wall Street Journal investigative report WRT the subprime mortgage borrowing spree that wreaked havoc on the US economy.

According to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council---financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers on Capitol Hill, including a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, subprime mortgage lenders and brokers, colluded together in fraudulent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos using falsified applications, and other tricks of the trade.

The massive mortgage fraud ended in disaster for which no one has been held responsible. Taxpayers got saddled with billions of dollars in bailout bills.

These subprime activities were not simply the mortgage market at work. They were fueled by avarice, greed, stupidity--all enabled by Congressmen and other groups which leave a trail at the door of then-Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali).

Between 2000 and 2009, Hispanic populations increased; but Hispanic home ownership grew even faster, increasing by 47%, to 6.1 million from 4.1 million, according to the US Census Bureau. Over that same period, homeownership nationally grew by an enemic 8%. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low- paying jobs obtained costly non-prime mortgages--- soaring to a shocking 169%, (Research provided by Wall Street Journal)

The subprime mortgage bank fraud network was spearheaded by then-Cong Joe Baca (D-Calif 43rd), in his powerful position as chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Baca's district ranks No.5 among all US Congressional districts in percentage of home loans tailored to sub-prime borrowers.

Baca used his the legislative power of his office and his leadership position in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to calculatedly launch a housing initiative called "HOGAR"-- Spanish for home.


CONSPIRACY AND COLLUSION---The Congressuial Hispanic caucuss has been quiet about its role in financing, and, earmarking, the blood-thirsty America- hating La Raza. race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-valled mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the fraudulent mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards.......whuch caused taxpayers to be socked w/ billions in bailouts......decimating the US economy. economy.

La Raza aided and abetted risky federal and private-home loans to latinos over the last decade. thanks to the lending industry’s version of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

In addition to millions of federal tax dollars, La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling." (cue laugh machine)
