    Criminal mafia coprorate banks continue crime wave.

    Criminal mafia banks continue crime wave.

    WASHINGTON – Real estate lender Colonial BancGroup Inc. has been shut down by federal officials in the biggest U.S. bank failure this year.

    The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which was appointed receiver of the Montgomery, Ala.-based Colonial and its about $25 billion in assets, said the failed bank's 346 branches in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Texas will reopen at the normal times starting on Saturday as offices of Winston-Salem, N.C.-based BB&T.

    The FDIC has approved the sale of Colonial's $20 billion in deposits and about $22 billion of its assets to BB&T Corp.

    Regulators also closed four other banks: Community Bank of Arizona, based in Phoenix; Union Bank, based in Gilbert, Ariz.; Community Bank of Nevada, based in Las Vegas; and Dwelling House Savings and Loan Association, located in Pittsburgh.

    The closures boosted to 77 the number of federally insured banks that have failed in 2009.



    Old Banks, New Lending Tricks

    Lenders haven't sworn off risky financial products. They've come up with a slew of new ones

    That didn't take long. The economy hasn't yet recovered from the implosion of risky investments that led to the worst recession in decades—and already some of the world's biggest banks are peddling a new generation of dicey products to corporations, consumers, and investors.

    In recent months such big banks as Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) have rolled out newfangled corporate credit lines tied to complicated and volatile derivatives. Others, including Wells Fargo (WFC) and Fifth Third (FITB), are offering payday-loan programs aimed at cash-strapped consumers. Still others are marketing new, potentially risky "structured notes" to small investors.

    There's no indication that the loans and instruments are doomed to fail. If the economy keeps moving toward recovery, as many measures suggest, then the new products might well work out for buyers and sellers alike.

    But it's another scenario that worries regulators, lawmakers, and consumer advocates: that banks once again are making dangerous loans to borrowers who can't repay them and selling toxic investments to investors who don't understand the risks—all of which could cause blowups in the banking sector and weigh on the economy.


    Some of Wall Street's latest innovations give reason for pause. Consider a trend in business loans. Lenders typically tie corporate credit lines to short-term interest rates. But now Citi, JPMorgan Chase, and BofA, among others, are linking credit lines both to short-term rates and credit default swaps (CDSs), the volatile and complicated derivatives that are supposed to act as "insurance" by paying off the owners if a company defaults on its debt. JPMorgan, BofA, and Citi declined to comment.

    In these new arrangements, when the price of the CDS rises—generally a sign the market thinks the company's health is deteriorating—the cost of the loan increases, too. The result: The weaker the company, the higher the interest rates it must pay, which hurts the company further.

    The lenders stress that the new products give them extra protection against default. But for companies, the opposite may be true. Managers now must deal with two layers of volatility—both short-term interest rates and credit default swaps, whose prices can spike for reasons outside their control.

    Making matters more difficult for corporate borrowers: high fees. Banks are raising their rates for credit lines across the board—but the new CDS-based credit lines cost far more than the old lines. FedEx (FDX) could end up paying $1.9 million to $3.6 million a month if it decides to tap a new line from JPMorgan and Bank of America. On its previous line with JPMorgan, FedEx would have paid about $540,000.

    Yet many companies have little alternative. With corporate credit remaining tight, banks increasingly are steering borrowers to the CDS-linked loans. All told, lenders have handed out nearly $40 billion worth this year—roughly 70% of the total in credit lines extended to borrowers in fairly good standing. That's up from around 14% in 2008. FedEx, United Parcel Service (UPS), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), and Toyota Motor Credit have all taken the plunge. "It wasn't our idea," says a UPS spokesman. "The banks pulled back from offering set rates."


    At the other end of the borrower spectrum, big banks are entering another controversial arena: payday loans, whose interest rates can run as high as 400%. Historically the market has been dominated by small nonbank lenders, which mainly operate in poor urban centers and offer customers an advance on their paychecks. But big lenders Fifth Third and U.S. Bancorp (USB) started offering the loans, while Wells Fargo continues to boost its payday-loan program, which it began in 1994.

    More big banks are getting into the market just as a recent flurry of usury laws has crippled smaller players. In the past two years lawmakers in 15 states have capped interest rates on short-term loans or kicked out payday lenders altogether. The state of Ohio, for example, has imposed a 28% interest rate limit. But thanks to interstate commerce rules, nationally chartered banks don't have to follow local rules. After Ohio limited rates, Cincinnati-based Fifth Third, which has 400 branches in the state but also operates in 11 others, introduced its Early Access Loan, with an annual interest rate of 120%. "These banks are skirting state laws," says Kathleen Day of advocacy group Center for Responsible Lending. Says a spokeswoman for Fifth Third: "Our Early Access product fully complies with federal regulations and applicable state regulations."

    Feds total faliure in protecting consumers.

    Under President Obama's proposal for financial regulatory reform, the Fed could be given expanded oversight powers to go with its mandate to ensure price stability and full employment. But at the same time, the Obama plan would strip the Fed of its existing consumer protection authority and give those responsibilities to a new agency.

    Federal Reserve is an abysmal and total failure, NO consumer protection.

    They have relinquished responsibility for controlling
    loan sharking, and given the Mafia banking Corps
    a green light to charge 402% interest rates.

    The Feds have given up the moral high ground
    to wallow in the criminal enterprise the American
    banks have become.

    Can the Fed be charge with failure of their
    fiduciary responsibility, Criminally charged
    with conspiracy to commit USURY?

    The Feds have given these same criminal
    banks $2 trillion dollars with out strings,
    'a don't ask don't tell ' policy.

    The Federal Reserve have become
    a shield for the new Mafia Banking Corps.
    Blocking prosecution, and enabling and paying
    off the Criminal banks that brought on the
    Toxic paper WORLD depression, to the
    TUNE of 2 trillion usd.

    This payoff was without Congressional
    approval or permission.

    The Federal Reserve is not only a total
    failure at protecting the public but
    a co-conspirator in the Criminal Banking

    A criminal investigation is long over due
    and the lack of an exhaustive in depth
    Investigation into the New Banking
    Corp. Mafia will have wide ranging
    and deep impact on the USA dollar
    as a World Reserve Currency and
    America's ability to obtain credit.

    Series 7 & 13

    .The banks now control congress through
    their lobbiests, using $300,000,000 from
    the bail out money the feds agve them.

    Holbrooke protected by Paki sec

    US special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    From one of our sources inside the beltway.

    "The word is out on Holbrooke's planned visit to Mingora, Swat in about 12 hours. Don't know what kind of security they have in mind but there are a lot of Taliban still there and they know he's coming. Swat is maybe 80% secure, definitely Indian Country.
    No Pak reporters are willing to go, the PakMil want pics of him at the IDP camps to show PakMil dominance in the area, it ain't so. I wish him luck.
    I think Holbrooke has a lot more confidence in Pak security than I would have."

    Update: CHANGE OF MIND:

    Bad weather forces Holbrooke to defer visit to Mingora

    ISLAMABAD: US special envoy Richard Holbrooke’s visit to Mingora was postponed on Sunday because of bad weather. Holbrooke, who arrived in Islamabad on Saturday, was scheduled to visit Mingora for a briefing by the military and local officials, XINHUA reported. Following his four-day visit to Pakistan, Holbrooke would also visit Afghanistan ahead of the presidential election there. In Pakistan, Holbrooke would call on President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and hold talks with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi. AUG 17.09

    Iran takes threat of attack seriously.

    Iran takes threat of attack seriously.

    The AP reported that "Iran, whose nuclear facilities are under threat of possible Israeli military strikes, proposed Wednesday that a 150-nation conference convening in the fall ban such attacks. Iran says the proposal, revealed to The Associated Press by diplomats and confirmed by a senior Iranian envoy, is not linked to veiled threats by Israel of an attack as a last resort if the international community fails to persuade Tehran to freeze its nuclear activities. Instead, all of the diplomats said the Iranian initiative seeks support for a generally worded document prohibiting all armed attacks against nuclear installations anywhere, when 150 nations convene for the September general conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency...And IAEA officials, speaking privately, have not ruled out the chance that Tehran is hiding other nuclear sites in areas in the sprawling country that are not known to Israeli intelligence. Iran has defied three sets of U.N. Security Council sanctions aimed at pressuring it to mothball uranium enrichment. It also is resisting an IAEA probe of intelligence-based information that it had drafted plans and conducted experiments for a weapons program."

    They know it coming.

    Navy Federal Credit Union Web Site Operating with Security Issue.

    Great report by , of TechMiso Blog.

    RSA Anti Fraud Command Centre, seems incompentent,
    It feels like RSA is trying to cover up a security risk
    by shutting down the blog that exposed the problem.

    Covering up a security risk and intimidation is not
    a legitimate method in preventing or terminating online activity that targets, or may potentially target Navy Federal Credit Union’s clients as potential fraud victims.

    This subrosa attack on the blogger to close his blog
    is a bullying tatic not based in legitimate concerns
    of Phishing or copy right infrigment issues
    those are excuses to silence legitimate concerns
    about Naval Banking Services.

    Obama took by surprise.

    Obama took by surprise.
    By Gerald Internet Anthropologist Think Tank

    His team is very astute, setting new paradigms.

    Even his personal OSINT is good.

    But he is missing a CI team.

    If he had a Competitive Intelliegence teams
    on his big paradigms, he could have seen
    this town hall meeting sabotage coming and
    pre-empted it.
    And have the health bill momentum.

    The big Corporates and their Lobbyist
    created this insurgency. With Emails,
    Mail, Internet, phones, TV and Papers.

    It was an organized planned and
    timed operation. They are operating in four
    theaters, Government, Internet, Cable and Print.

    Their moves have been coordinated across
    all four theaters.

    I watched a CNN program about Want and where
    all the lies and scare tactics were coming form
    and who was doing it. Good stuff, in depth
    investigative reporting.
    And the commercial at every break
    was a commercial presenting all
    the lies and scary whoring.

    The insurgents bought their way into their own
    expose'a. Spreading the lies and
    scare propaganda during a program
    exposing their lies and methods.

    They are good and have huge Balls.

    A good CI team could have prepared Obama
    for the Info war, the insurgent winning the hearts and
    minds with lies and obfuscation.
    Scaring senior citizens then empowering them
    towards aggressive action.

    I think the part Obama missed was the impact
    the Internet would have on the Government,
    print and Cable and people.

    The Internet is a force multiplier.

    Some of us know this, and use the Internet as a
    force multiplier sets traps, burns up insurgents
    time and resources, pre- prepared counter attacks
    to regain and keep momentum.

    The Internet Paradigm is expanding.......

    Their top gun gets $2,000,000 dollars ( Lobbyists ), and for that bribe he will lie for the insurgents.

    "Then, Senator Grassley, who according to Joan Wash at has “been held up as a paragon of reason and bipartisan comity,” went totally rogue and, in my opinion, went even beyond Sarah Palin’s (now tempered) original rant.

    Here are some of Grassley’s comments made during town hall meetings in Iowa yesterday:

    Referring to counseling for end-of-life, Grassley told the crowd: “And from that standpoint, you have every right to fear… We should not have a government program that determines if you’re going to pull the plug on grandma.” "



    He knows he is lying, somebody with some guts censure him.

    Is paying a congressman to lie a Crime?

    CI is our primary business.

    Interview with Paki.

    Interview with Paki.
    By Gerald Internet Anthropologist Think Tank

    Wakeen what is it like to fight the US Army?

    They are nothing, easy.
    Our method of fighting is one of
    hit , hit, hit. They feel the pain.


    Yes we are not afraid to die,
    Suicide, and we have many Martyrs
    every day in combat.


    Yes almost every time we fight
    Americans we have Martyrs.

    Americans are cowards, they hide
    in their heavy amour cars.

    We do have to hit them very hard
    to have any effect. And they waste
    much ammunition.
    We fire one clip at them and
    they fire 100 clips back.
    Its like steel rain.

    We fire and duck.
    They seem to know the general
    area we are hiding in. And we
    get a short steel rain.

    Then we have one or two RPG
    shots at them. Then as John Wane
    said "we have to get to hell out of Dodge"

    We have maybe 3 to 5 min before
    the cowards have air cover to hide
    behind. And we need to disappear,

    The drones are the biggest concern,
    the cowards are not even there.

    It can be a nice sunny day, dark
    midnight, or rainy days, and dark.
    We hear nothing and see nothing.

    The earth shakes and explodes
    like 100 IEDs. And some building
    is gone, everyone near it is dead.

    Secret meetings NO ONE knows
    and they too become Martyrs
    in a large flash.

    Spies are easy to spot, sudden
    richness, certain item they
    carry, no need or reason to be
    some where. We take of them.

    All working for Satan.

    Every one is considered a spy.
    We watch every one.


    No, you make fun, but my friends in the
    big cities are very smart and they cyber

    There are Martyrs among them also.
    Many just disappear. Few we get bodies
    back. Interenet is just as dangerous
    as the attack in the field.
    They have taken down all our websites
    but we have the key ones back up
    where American can't get them.

    America uses drones, we use IEDs.
    We kill Americans and they kill Taliban.


    Yes but we kidnapped the American solider.


    You think drones will rain from the skies
    like a monsoon.

    Omar will decide. The American is safe for

    To be used against US Troops.

    They ship Rockets to Israels neighbors
    Which are fired Into Israel.

    They gave Syria nuclear plans.

    They have sanctions many of them applied
    to them for 3 or 4 years.

    They are killing their own civilians.

    The 13th Imam movement, of which
    Abberjonny is a member, wouldn't view
    using a nuke in a state suicide mission
    a bad thing. It might bring on the 13th

    The regime is corrupt, they fabricated an election.

    They have threatened US and Israel.
