Bank Robber Selfie

  It’s believed Bahler robbed a Genisys Credit Union and a Bank of America in Pontiac, and then went up to Bay City where to rob a Chemical Bank. Authorities believe he got away with about $15,000.”

” A man wearing a “full face President Obama mask” robbed a New Hampshire bank this morning, according to police who apprehended a suspect shortly after the 10:30 AM incident.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world’s largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything.

You may have heard of the Libor scandal, in which at least three – and perhaps as many as 16 – of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the prices of upward of $500 trillion (that’s trillion, with a “t”) worth of financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history – MIT professor Andrew Lo even said it “dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scam in the history of markets.”

That was bad enough, but now Libor may have a twin brother. Word has leaked out that the London-based firm ICAP, the world’s largest broker of interest-rate swaps, is being investigated by American authorities for behavior that sounds eerily reminiscent of the Libor mess. Regulators are looking into whether or not a small group of brokers at ICAP may have worked with up to 15 of the world’s largest banks to manipulate ISDAfix, a benchmark number used around the world to calculate the prices of interest-rate swaps.” 

Stocks Slump 1% After Jobs Report, Dow Skids 150; Vix Spikes 10%

 

 

Stock

 
” Stocks dropped more than 1 percent across the board Friday, with all key S&P sectors in the red, following a much weaker-than-expected March unemployment report in addition to ongoing worries over North Korea.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled more than 150 points, dragged byCisco and Bank of America.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq also slumped sharply. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), widely considered the best gauge of fear in the market, spiked above 15.

All key S&P sectors were firmly in negative territory, led by techs and financials.

U.S. employers hired at the slowest pace in nine months in March, adding just 88,000, while the unemployment rate notched lower to 7.6 percent, largely due to people dropping out of the work force, according to the Labor Department. The unemployment rate is the lowest since December 2008, while the labor force participation rate is at the lowest since 1979. Analysts polled by Reuters had expected a gain of 200,000.

Earlier this week, private sector employment and jobless claims data indicated weakness in the labor market. Reports on the manufacturing and services sectors also disappointed.”

Mary Jo White Could Face Conflicts Of Interest As SEC Chairwoman

 

 

 

 

 

 ” As a lawyer in private practice, Mary Jo White worked for Wall Street all-stars: banking giant JPMorgan Chase & Co., auditor Deloitte & Touche, former Bank of America Corp. chief Ken Lewis.

White, President Obama‘s pick to lead the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, even did legal work for former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. director Rajat Gupta, the highest-profile catch in the federal government’s crackdown on insider trading, according to disclosures White filed ahead of her U.S. Senate confirmation hearing.

If she wins approval to lead the country’s top financial watchdog, government ethics rules could force White to sit out of some SEC decisions. Potential conflicts of interest — or the appearances of conflicts — could arise from her work at the high-powered New York law firm Debevoise & Plimpton, and that of her husband John White, a partner at the prestigious firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore.

Obama’s appointment of White, a former U.S. attorney in Manhattan known for high-profile prosecutions of mobsters and terrorists, was seen as a signal the administration was getting tougher on Wall Street. Her confirmation hearing in the Senate has not yet been scheduled but is expected in the next several weeks.”

RAHM EMANUEL URGES MAJOR BANKS TO STOP SERVING GUN MAKERS UNLESS THEY SUPPORT ‘COMMON SENSE’ GUN CONTROL

 

 

 

   And people should listen to him because he and his preferred methods have done so much to improve the safety of Chicago and it’s residents … Not

” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is urging two of the biggest financial institutions in the country to stop supporting gun manufacturers unless the companies agree to “common sense reforms” on firearms. The issue of gun control aside, the request sounds a little like blackmail.

Emanuel reportedly sent letters to the CEOs of Bank of America and TD Bank urging them to stop lines of credit, financing for acquisitions and expansions and financial advising unless they get on board with gun control. Among other things, the former Obama advisor wants gun makers to support criminal background checks on all gun sales.”

   Once again the mayor of a major US city , a public employee mind you , takes it upon himself to try and dictate policy to private businesses . Remind us what on earth is American about public officials deliberately trying to stifle the very American businesses and citizens that pay their bloody salaries . 

 

  Related : We have already seen Bank of America’s attitudes toward legal American businesses and also their respect for our borders and laws .

  Perhaps we should take stock of Herr Emanuel’s ways and put them to use for the forces of good and the free market . Why don’t the stockholders of the banking business call on their institutions to stop facilitating the continual degradation of the value of America’s equity and investments by helping to fund the politicians that are foisting this historic pyramid scheme on us and giving the bill to our children ?

Bank of America Reportedly Froze Gun Makers Account

 

 

 

 

” American Spirit Arms owner, Joe Sirochman posted on his Facebook page a statement that is truly amazing. He discusses a problem he was having with the bank as they were holding his merchant account funds for ‘further review’.

After many hours on hold with the bank trying to get to someone who could help he was told by a bank manager, “WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and PARTS ON THE INTERNET”. Needless to say this angered Mr. Sirochman!

We are at a point now in America if we don’t stand up for our Constitutional Rights we are going to lose them forever. When private companies (Bank of America) decide not to honor their obligations to their ‘law abiding’ customers (American Spirit Arms) just because they don’t like what they are doing it is time for us (Americans who believe in the Constitution) to stop supporting those businesses (Bank of America).

Here is his post on the American Spirit Arms Facebook page:

All,
My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms and I wanted to share my recent experience with Bank of America .(which we have been doing business with for over 10 years)…. “

 

 

  This isn’t BoA’s first foray into the world of politics in general and firearms in particular . Witness their treatment of McMillan firearms and illegal alien credit cards and mortgages .

 

And let us not forget BoA’s cozying up to Drug Lords …

 

Mexican Drug Cartel Laundered Money Through BofA, FBI Alleges

FBI: Drug Cartels Use Bank of America to Launder Money

American Banks ‘High’ On Drug Money: How a Whistleblower …

 

 

  So apparently while Bank of America is more than happy to facilitate illegal immigration , drug lords and money laundering it cannot in good conscience do business with legal American businesses that engage in the legitimate firearms trade . Remember this and choose your bank and financial advisors accordingly .

 

 

Obama Campaign Borrows $15M from Bank of America

” Obama has a complicated relationship with Bank of America. The bank contributed $20 million toward the cost of the Democrat National Convention earlier this year. Bank of America stadium, home to the Carolina Panthers, was supposed to host Obama’s acceptance speech. At the last moment, the campaign switched to a significantly smaller venue. The campaign claimed that an impending storm would not allow the President to deliver his address. Many questioned whether move was made because the campaign was having trouble filling such a large stadium.”
