Banksters Rally Round Fed To Keep Bailout Trillions Secret

Banks say they will go to Supreme Court to block transparency

Banksters Rally Round Fed To Keep Bailout Trillions Secret 150410banker The largest commercial banks in the U.S. are ready to go all the way to the Supreme Court to block the public release of details pertaining to the Federal Reserve’s 2008 secretive $2 trillion bailout.

Bloomberg News reports that The Clearing House Association LLC, a group that includes Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co., have teamed with the Fed to rally against a lawsuit, brought by Bloomberg itself, to disclose records of the Fed’s emergency lending.

The fight for disclosure has been ongoing following the Fed’s failure to comply with congressional demands for transparency.

The Fed has consistently refused to identify the recipients of almost $2 trillion of emergency loans from American taxpayers or the troubled assets the central bank accepted as collateral.

A New York District ruling last August declared that the destination of around $2 trillion dollars in bailout funds must be revealed after the Fed failed to convince the Judge that the records should be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act.

Citing the fact that the US taxpayer is an “involuntary investor” in the nation”s banks, Bloomberg argued that the risks behind the $2 trillion in lending needed to be made public.

Following more stalling, a further ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan on March 19 ordered the central bank to release the documents. The Fed once again argued that disclosure would be harmful to its independence, would stigmatize borrowers and discourage banks from seeking further emergency help.

“Our member banks are very concerned about real-time disclosure of information that could cause a run on the banks,” said Paul Saltzman, the group of bank’s general counsel, in an interview yesterday. “We”re not going to let the Second Circuit opinion stand without seeking a review.”

If the appeal for a review is turned down, the bank group will then petition the Supreme Court, Saltzman added.

Banks incorporated by the New York-based Clearing House group also include Citigroup Inc., Bank of New York Mellon Corp., Deutsche Bank AG, HSBC Holdings Plc, PNC Financial Services Group Inc., UBS AG, U.S. Bancorp and Wells Fargo & Co.

The Fed Board of Governors” “refusal to disclose the names of borrowers renders public oversight of its actions impossible — it prevents any assessment of the effectiveness of the Board”s actions and conceals any collusion, corruption, fraud or abuse that might have occurred,” Bloomberg states in a letter to the appeals panel.

Banksters Rally Round Fed To Keep Bailout Trillions Secret 110310banner1

The amount of US taxpayer money committed to bailouts since 2007 is thought to be close to $25 trillion. The figures by far exceed the combined cost of major historical events, accounting for inflation, dating back over 200 years.

Taxpayers have been left completely in the dark as to who has received the money and what they are doing with it.

The public has watched in disbelief for close to eighteen months as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has arrogantly refused to state where any of the bailout money has gone, despite repeated questioning during Congressional and Senate hearings.

There is no accounting for the spending. The Federal Reserve, which is owned and run for the most part by European banking elites, has never been audited and is accountable to no one, as former chairman Alan Greenspan has explained:

It comes as little surprise that the offshore bankers who continue to benefit from the looting of the U.S. economy would support Fed secrecy.

Henry Paulson and his fellow ex-Goldman Sachs executive Neel Kashkari both ensured that Bernanke and their banker gangster friends were well looked after, while Paulson himself brazenly pocketed $200 million in Goldman Sachs profits tax free.

All this following Paulson’s monumental “bait and switch” when he deceived Congress into passing the bailout bill under the proviso that the $750 billion dollar package would be used to purchase toxic debt, when in fact it was used to bail out failing financial institutions.

A monolithic private corporation and a gaggle of bastard banker children sucking on its teat, have effectively gobbled up trillions plus in taxpayers” money and figuratively stuck the middle finger up regarding questions over where that money has gone.

Quite inconceivably this outright theft has been termed a “rescue”, yet it has had no effect whatsoever other than to actually increase the severity of the financial downturn, allowing the same elites to exploit the crisis as a pretext for centralizing control of the world economic system.

Save for Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency bill, America’s elected representatives have laid down to the Fed, with the Washington elite even attempting protecting the Fed from any real examination.

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 all happening now 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". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

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 I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

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 tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it 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?
