SEC Engages in Conspiracy with AIG to Hide Bailout Evidence

Earlier today House representative Edolphus Towns subpoenaed documents related to the so-called “backdoor bailout” of AIG, including documents from Timothy Geithner, the former New York Fed chief and current Treasury secretary. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is looking for information on payments made to AIG counterparties, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Barclays, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, and Societe Generale. The subpoena “specifically requests all documents surrounding the decision to pay AIG’s counterparties 100 cents on the dollar,” according to AFP.

It looks like Towns and his committee may only get part of the story. They will have to wait until 2018 to get the rest.

In May, well before Geithner was on the hot seat, the Securities and Exchange Commission approved a request by AIG to keep secret an exhibit to a year-old regulatory filing that includes some of the details on the most criminal aspect of the AIG bailout — the funneling of billions of dollars to the above mentioned culprits, particularly Goldman Sachs.

The SEC said the exhibit “qualifies as confidential commercial or financial information” and is off limits to Congress and the American people. The 2018 expiration date will fall on the tenth anniversary of the Federal Reserve of New York’s decision to provide “emergency financing” to an entity set up to specifically acquire some $60 billion in collateralized debt obligations from 16 banks in the United States and Europe.

The SEC ruling is yet another indication the banksters have a lot to hide and will go to unusual lengths to prevent the American people from learning the sordid details of their criminal activities.

In March of 2009, the socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, demanded Federal Reserve mob boss Ben Bernanke reveal who received $2.2 trillion dollars in taxpayer money (or rather taxpayer debt obligation). Bernanke refused to answer. Bernanke said revealing who received the money would risk “stigmatizing banks and discouraging them from borrowing from the central bank.” Sanders abruptly cut Bernanke off. “Isn’t that too bad,” Sanders said. “They took the money but they don’t want to be public about the fact that they received it.”

In July of 2009, Congressman Alan Grayson asked Bernanke about which foreign banks were the recipients of Federal Reserve credit swaps. Asked which European financial institutions received the money, which was handed over by the Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee, Bernanke responded, “I don’t know.” Bernanke said the Fed had a “long standing legal authority” to hand money to foreign banks under section 14 of the Federal Reserve Act, a claim contradicted by Bernanke’s own report, as Grayson soon highlighted.

“As we have previously reported, the destination of trillions in bailout funds remains hidden after the Fed refused to disclose where it had gone despite a lawsuit filed by Bloomberg,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote for Prison Planet on July 22.

Bloomberg filed a lawsuit under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act requesting details about the terms of 11 Fed lending programs. On December 8, 2009, the Fed said it is permitted to withhold internal memos as well as information about trade secrets and commercial information.

As noted by Reuters, the AIG to SEC request to hide details of the massive and unprecedented bailout received scant attention in the corporate media when it was announced in May. “But it could spark controversy now following the release last week of 14-month-old emails that reveal that some at the New York Fed had discussions with AIG officials about how much information should be disclosed to the public about the Maiden Lane III transaction.”


Maiden Lane III is a Federal Reserve scheme to facilitate the merger of the Bear Stearns Companies and JPMorgan Chase. The New York Fed also used Maiden Lane III to acquire assets of Bear Stearns.

In November, Special Inspector General Neil Barofsky said “New York Fed didn’t have the backbone to stand up to Wall Street, didn’t understand its capacity to protect taxpayers, and didn’t appreciate that its responsibility was to taxpayers,” according to former prosecutor Eliot Spitzer. “Geithner and the Fed have proffered a series of spurious reasons for their willingness to pay AIG’s counterparties — the leading Wall Street banks — in full while demanding concessions from every other entity with whom the Treasury or the Fed dealt.”

In fact, the Federal Reserve, as a cartel for the international bankers, knew precisely what it was doing — it was paying off its buddies on Wall Street for their casino derivatives losses. The scam also provides an additional mechanism for crashing and burning the U.S. economy and ushering Americans into globalist serfdom.

Geithner and crew at the Treasury, at the Federal Reserve, and in the offices of Goldman Sachs and the other criminal bankster organizations need to be arrested immediately. Only through the process of discovery during prosecution will we learn the grim details of the largest financial crime in history and be able to punish the criminals responsible.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
