Lawmaker Seeks FBI Files On Financial Crash; Wants To See Why No Bank Execs Were Arrested – Consumerist
Millions of Americans lost their jobs, houses, savings, and more when the housing market collapsed under the weight of mortgages that should never have been approved, let alone bundled and converted into worthless, toxic securities. And yet, no senior Wall Street bank executives were ever charged with a crime. Now one U.S. congressman is asking to look at the FBI files to find out why. In a letter [PDF] sent yesterday to FBI Director James Comey, Rep. Bill Pascrell (NJ) points out that in 2004 — four years before the collapse — the FBI had already expressed concerns about questionable mortgage practices that would ultimately result in the loss of trillions of dollars in household wealth.
Monsanto had been aware for 40 years now that glyphosate causes cancer — yet they remain mum about it. This was revealed by a new paper by researchers Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff through an article published by GMWatch. Samsel examined Monsanto’s secret toxicology data after he obtained it through a request to his senator. Both Samsel and Seneff concluded that “significant evidence of tumors was found during the investigations.” They also revealed that Monsanto diluted the data to decrease its significance by including data and statistics from unrelated experiments to create doubt and obscure significant evidences.
Northern Levant: Where oil and gas reserves, oil pipelines and refineries trump everything else … except occupation of the land. To this very day the Armenian Genocide, which began within the borders of the Ottoman Empire in 1915, has been vehemently denied by the Republics of Turkey and Azerbaijan. Both Israel and the United States of America have likewise refused to acknowledge the historical reality of the Armenian Holocaust. Why should these nations adamantly persist in their denial of such a well documented crime against humanity? Because 100 years later in 2015 there is now indisputable evidence that the very same countries are perpetrating a similar genocide against the people of Syria, especially against the Christian communities as occurred during the Armenian Genocide. The following photo-documentary presents irrefutable evidence of the genocide of Armenians, just as the today’s alternative new media have provided similar evidence of the ongoing genocide of the Syrian people. Only by understanding the true origin of the Dönmeh of Turkey and the Wahhabi of Saudi Arabia will the Greater Israel Project and Syrian Holocaust be properly understood.
Editor’s note: For those who know that terror groups like ISIS and others are funded by the West, what this topic means is that the government is seeking ways to identify anyone deemed an enemy of the state…
Without adequate analysis and algorithms, mass surveillance is not the answer to fighting terrorism and tracking suspects. That’s what President Obama had learned last year when he signed the USA Freedom Act, which ends the bulk collection of domestic phone data by US Intelligence Agencies. There is no doubt that US Government is collecting a vast quantity of data from your smartphone to every connected device i.e. Internet of the things, but…
Washington has blocked the final document of a UN conference that reviewed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, accusing Egypt of manipulating the gathering to target Israel. Moscow has slammed the US for rendering the four-week meeting futile.
For the so-called ‘radical leftist’ from Greece is only the latest in a long line of ‘radicals’ and ‘leftists’ to betray the people who had voted for them and cave into the demands of imperialist international finance capital.
The only surprising thing about Alexis Tsipras’ capitulation to the troika is that anyone should be surprised by it.
In Britain, we had our own version of the Greek ‘crisis’ in 1931. And like today, it was a politician nominally of the ‘left,’ the Labour Party leader Ramsay Macdonald, who eventually sided with the bankers against ordinary working people. A ‘banker-led coup’ occurred that replaced the democratically elected Labour government with a new capital-approved National Government, which moved to introduce steep cuts in public spending and slashed unemployment pay. The new government was dominated by the Conservatives, but had the turncoat ‘socialist’ MacDonald at the helm and another Labour traitor Philip Snowden as Lord Privy Seal.
The London bankers told MacDonald: “The cause of the trouble was not financial, but political, and lay in the complete want of confidence in His Majesty’s Government existing among foreigners,” records the historian A.J.P. Taylor, citing Keith Feiling’s biography of Neville Chamberlain. In the general election campaign in October 1931, Philip Snowden (soon to become ‘Viscount Snowden’), viciously turned on his former comrades in the Labour Party, saying that their anti-austerity program was “Bolshevism run mad.”
