James Comey’s politicization of the FBI has had detrimental effects on the agency that will tarnish the august institution for generations to come. Comey, who had no law enforcement background, was nominated to head up America’s domestic intelligence agency by Barack Obama, whose presidential campaign was funded by Wall Street Banks. During Obama’s presidential campaign, three-quarters of a billion dollars was funneled into the coffers of Obama in the biggest quid pro quo in America’s history.
After the election of Obama as president, the nations’ agencies were stacked with Wall Street Banker’s most loyal of agents in order to protect the banks from prosecution for crashing the global economy in favor of pure, unadulterated greed. Obama’s first Attorney General, Wall Street’s own Eric Holder, ensured there would be no investigations nor prosecutions. Nay, not only would the taxpayers bail out Wall Street but those at the top would collect hundreds of millions in bonuses. From Rolling Stone:
Top spy agencies stacked against American people
Eric Holder, Wall Street Double Agent, Comes in From the Cold
Barack Obama's former top cop cashes in after six years of letting banks run wild
Holder will reassume his lucrative partnership (he made $2.5 million the last year he worked there) and take his seat in an office that reportedly – this is no joke – was kept empty for him in his absence.
The office thing might have been improper, but at this point, who cares? More at issue is the extraordinary run Holder just completed as one of history's great double agents. For six years, while brilliantly disguised as the attorney general of the United States, he was actually working deep undercover…
Holder denied there was anything weird about returning to one of Wall Street's favorite defense firms after six years of letting one banker after another skate on monstrous cases of fraud, tax evasion, market manipulation, money laundering, bribery and other offenses…
Here's a man who just spent six years handing out soft-touch settlements to practically every Too Big to Fail bank in the world. Now he returns to a firm that represents many of those same companies: Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup, to name a few… after he handed out these deals, his service was certainly worth many billions of dollars to Wall Street.
Now he will presumably collect assloads of money from those very same bankers. It's one of THE BIGGEST QUID PRO QUO DEALS in the history of government service…
Yes, Eric Holder let the big banks off the hook to the tune of billions of dollars extracted from American taxpayers to bail out American and European banksters, one of which was HSBC the British based bank that laundered money for Mexican drug cartels through US satellite banking offices.
Anyone who even tries to claim that none of the banks actually did anything illegal should be directed to the HSBC settlement of December 2012. In this deferred prosecution agreement, Europe's largest bank paid $1.92 billion to settle their responsibility for violations of the Bank Secrecy Act and other laws.
This is from a description of HSBC's crimes by Holder's Justice Department:
"As a result of HSBC Bank USA's AML failures, at least $881 million in drug trafficking proceeds – including proceeds of drug trafficking by the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico…were laundered through HSBC Bank USA."
You might remember the Sinaloa cartel for their ISIS-style, unforgettably upsetting torture videos. HSBC washed their cash. They even created special teller windows to make their deposits easier. This is admitted, not alleged.
But Holder went out of his way to let them keep their U.S. charter. HE GAVE THEIR EXECUTIVES A GRAND TOTAL OF ZERO DAYS IN JAIL, ZERO DOLLARS IN INDIVIDUAL FINES…
Holder contributed countless subtle inventions to soften punishments. The most revolting in my view was allowing banks like Chase the courtesy of calling their settlements "remedial payments" instead of fines for wrongdoing.
This seemingly insignificant semantic tweak allowed the bank to call $7 billion of their settlement a business expense, which meant they could claim it as a tax deduction, which in turn meant that taxpayers like you and me paid a whopping $2.45 billion of Chase's penalty.
And guess who one of those Executives that received a “grand total of zero days in jail and zero dollars in individual fines” was? None other than James Comey. That’s right, James Comey one of the executives at HSBC Bank was involved with money laundering and drug money trafficking in the US through a British owned bank that cost American tax payers $881 million in “drug trafficking proceeds.”
Obama is Bush’s Third Term
In 2009 Mother Jones wrote an article called “Bush's Third Term? You're living it.” In the article they outline what George W. Bush would have done if he had a third term.
If Bush were in his third term, we would already have seen him propose, yet again, the largest military budget in the history of the world… And of course, he would have held onto his Secretary of Defense from his second term, Robert Gates, to run the Pentagon, keep our ongoing wars rolling along, and oversee the better part of our public budget…
He'd probably also be escalating the campaign he launched late in his second term to use drone aircraft to illegally and repeatedly strike into Pakistan's tribal borderlands with Afghanistan…. If Bush were still "the decider" he'd be employing mercenaries like Blackwater and propagandists like the Rendon Group and he might even be expanding the number of private security contractors in Afghanistan.
In fact, the whole executive branch would be packed with disreputable corporate executive types. You'd have somebody like John ("May I torture this one some more, please?") Rizzo still serving, at least for a while, as general counsel at the CIA. The White House and Justice Department would be crawling with corporate cronies, people like John Brennan, Greg Craig, James Jones, and ERIC HOLDER.
In addition, the bank bailouts Bush and his economic team initiated in his second term would still be rolling along… Ben Bernanke, for instance, would certainly have been reappointed to run the Fed…
If the Democrats in Congress attempted to pass any set of needed reforms like, to take an example, new healthcare legislation, Bush, the third termer, would have held secret meetings in the White House with insurance and drug company executives to devise a means to turn such proposals to their advantage.
This dark fantasy of a third Bush term is… an accurate portrait of Obama's first term to date.
Yes, in 2008 Americans were desperate for change, they were promised by Obama and Biden, they would get universal healthcare. Medicare for all. Instead what was passed was the GOP’s Wall Street profit driven health insurance plan written by the right-wing Heritage Foundation. Once the plan was repackaged in black face under the cover of a “Democratic” administration, any opposition was quickly extinguished as being racist.
And Obamacare was just the start, the Bush Administration’s lawless attacks on civil and human rights were placed on steroids by Obama and Biden. Each terror attack, no matter where it took place, demanded further erosion of constitutionally guaranteed rights. From, The Free Thought Project:
America a lunatic asylum run by FBI and CIA
Former CIA Officer: “Every Single Terrorist Attack In US Was A False Flag Attack”
Washington, D.C. — While it is a commonly known fact that the CIA utilizes foreign terror groups to destabilize governments targeted by the United States, a much lesser known fact is that numerous whistleblowers have come forward to claim that U.S. intelligence services not only use terrorism to achieve foreign policy goals, but to actually create domestic terror incidents to “blind the masses.”
The most recent intelligence whistleblower is David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, and the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence. Steele, a former CIA clandestine services case officer, had this to say:
“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum...”
Many people believe the attacks of 9/11 to be a false flag event, perhaps orchestrated by U.S. intelligence services or an entity that operates above the level of government entities (commonly referred to as the deep state/military industrial complex.)
The alleged purpose of this false flag attack was to justify the invasion of other countries, and usher in a heightened state of “national security,” precipitating the curtailing of civil liberties in the name of “safety.”
How effective has the 911 false flag been in persuading the American people to accept the CIA’s overthrow of elected governments who refuse to succumb to America’s imperial ambitions? Just ask Brazil and Argentina two of the most powerful and rich countries in South America, who have both seen their elected governments overthrown by the CIA and their resources and treasuries thrown open to Wall Street hedge fund vultures. From GlobalResearch.
Wall Street and the Pentagon greeted the onset of 2016 as a ‘banner year’, a glorious turning point in the quest for malleable regimes willing to sell-off the most lucrative economic resources, to sign off on onerous new debt to Wall Street and to grant use of their strategic military bases to the Pentagon.
Brazil and Argentina, the most powerful and richest countries in South America and the Philippines, Washington’s most strategic military platform in Southeast Asia, were the objects of intense US political operations in the run-up to 2016.
In each instance, Wall Street and the Pentagon secured smashing successes leading to premature ejaculations over the ‘new golden era’ of financial pillage and unfettered military adventures…
Argentina and Brazil: Grandiose Schemes and Crapulous Outcomes
The international financial press was ecstatic over the election of President Mauricio Macri in Argentina and the appointment of former Wall Street bankers to his cabinet. They celebrated the ouster of the ‘evil populists’, accusing them of inflating economic results, reneging on debt obligations and discouraging foreign lenders and investors. Under the Macri regime all market obstacles were to be removed and all the bankers trembled with anticipation at the ‘good times’ to come.
After taking office in December 2015, President Macri unleashed the ‘animal instincts’ of the market and the carrion birds flocked in. US ‘vulture funds’ scooped up and demanded payment for on old Argentine debt ‘valued’ at $3.5 billion – constituting a 1,000% return on their initial investment. A devaluation of the peso of 50% tripled inflation and drove down wages by 20%.
Firing over 200,000 public sector employees, slapping 400% price increases on utilities and transport, driving small and medium size firms into bankruptcy and enraged consumers into the streets ended the honeymoon with the Argentine electorate quite abruptly. This initial massive dose of free enterprise ‘medicine’ was prescribed by the local and Wall Street bankers and investors who had promised a new golden era for capitalism! …
Brazil: Wall Street’s Three Month ‘Whirl-Wind’ Honeymoon
Most of the current elected members of the Brazilian Congress, Senate and the recently-installed (rather than elected) President, as well as his cabinet, are in trouble: The hero, Michael Temer and his argonauts, chosen by Wall Street to privatize the Brazilian economy and usher in another ‘golden dawn’ for finance capital, now all face criminal changes, arrest and long prison sentences for money laundering, bribery, fraud, tax evasion and corruption.
In less than four months, the entire political edifice constructed to impeach the elected President Dilma Rousseff and then de-nationalize key sectors of the economy, is shaking. So much for the financial press’s proclamation of a new era of “business friendly” policies in Brazilia.
Ha ha, the best laid plans of “rats and spooks” in Latin America is a big failure. Now the 2016 election is upon us and the CIA and FBI are pulling out all the stops to upend the two major candidates, neither of whom they want to ascend to power and rein in the unfettered power of the US shadow government. The agencies are irate that the American people rejected their candidates in the primaries. So, what is the latest “false flag” being spoon fed to the American people? The Russian Government is interfering with the American election. Bullsh*t. From Alex Jones:
CONFIRMED: US INTEL OPERATIVES LEAKED CLINTON CAMPAIGN EMAILS, NOT RUSSIA
It’s now clear from numerous sources that the Podesta hack, which led to Wikileaks releasing tens of thousands of Clinton campaign emails, as well as other hacks targeting the Democratic Party, were the work of U.S. intelligence operatives… Sources who have spoken privately to Alex Jones but don’t want to be named have confirmed that government and intelligence operatives worked in tandem to provide Julian Assange’s organization with the Podesta emails.
This is backed up by former British ambassador Craig Murray, who was told by security insiders that the email leak “comes from within official circles in Washington DC.” William Binney, NSA whistleblower and former technical head of the NSA, also told Infowars back in August that the email leaks which have negatively impacted the Democratic Party were carried out by individuals within the U.S. intelligence community who were angry at Hillary exposing classified information and sought to take revenge.
Yes, and while the intelligence community is throwing everything in their massive covert goody bag at Hillary Clinton before Tuesday’s election, the Republican establishment is coalescing around Paul Ryan to keep Trump from winning the electoral vote. It is too late, Trump has already won. Trump is truly the candidate of change.
Not only has Trump stood by the people of the United States, he has stood by the people of the world especially in the UK, Russia and Syria. Now the people will stand by Trump and Trump will be the leader of the free world. Under a President Trump, America will be great again, because America will be good again. Under President Trump the world will be a better place. On Tuesday America’s sixteen year nightmare will be over, thank God.
