Got Any Money in the Cyprus Bank?

Nobody Reports

If you are a poor British retired soldier, living out your life on the Island of Cyprus, you woke up and found out that the EU, decided it was running out of money, and so, they “taxed” your savings.  They just reached inside your pocket like the good elite oligarchs they are, and grabbed what they felt they could.A customer walks out of a branch of Laiki Bank UK, in north London

If you are too late getting to the bank, the banks will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday because, they have a lot of pillaging to do.

Russian citizens account for the majority of the billions of Euros held in Cypriot banks by foreign depositors, and Russian banks are heavily exposed to the island as a favored offshore centre for big business. tired-looking Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, appeared to have lost track of the calendar and wished weary reporters a “happy St Patrick’s Day” a full day early. She made no reference to a deposit levy, talking only of “burden sharing.” Several EU officials blamed Anastasiades for insisting on low contributions from uninsured deposits, hurting his country’s small savers to protect wealthy depositors, many foreigners. Under the new proposal, smaller depositors with up to €100,000 would be taxed at 3%; savers with €100,000 to €500,000 would be taxed at 10%; and those with more than €500,000 at 15%. despite all the promises, your savings are vulnerable to arbitrary confiscation.

But have heart! Those deposits could have been rendered even more worthless when the ECB cuts off its funding to Cypriot banks, a decision which would — through devaluation and insolvency — lead to depositors losing as much as 60% of their money.

Well, it’s the same old song isn’t it? “We must all share the burden.” and “It could have been so much worse.” The elites of the world, who continue to tax and steal money from the rest of us, are basically saying: Hey…we only took off your legs..it could have been worse..we could have KILLED you!Cypress

In the meantime, Japan will begin pumping huge amounts of yen into the economy, and our own Federal Reserve is pumping money too.

There seems to be more to it than simply wanting money. It’s the Russians that are going to be hurt the most…because they are sending Naval ships to the region.

Russia is helping Syria, and are sending Navel ships into the area. Simply put… they can’t get into Syria as long as this money stream is flowing through Cyprus. And the reason Cyprus is suffering…is also due to a very expensive explosion in 2011 which cost them billions:
Ruskies have at least 50 billion euros stalled in Cyprus. They have open storage on the base were 98 containers of explosives that had been seized by the United States Navy in 2009 after it intercepted a Cypriot-flagged, Russian owned vessel, the MV Monchegorsk travelling from Iran to Syria in the Red Sea. According to leaked US cables through Wiki Leaks, released in 2011, the US through Hillary Clinton exerted pressure on Cyprus to confiscate the shipment. The ship was escorted to a Cypriot port and the Cyprus Navy was given responsibility for the explosives, which it moved to the Evangelos Florakis a month later. At the time of the incident in 2011, the explosives had apparently been left in the open for over two years. The Cypriot government had declined offers from Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States to remove or dispose of the material, having feared an adverse reaction from Syria. The government had instead requested that the UN effect the removal, but claimed that its request had been rejected.

While the average American doesn’t get much news about the EU…we can only imagine how we would feel if we woke up one day…went online, and found out our “savings” had been taxed.

Obama has been looking at a way to “borrow” from our 401K’sand Pensions plans. Could our government be thinking about doing the same thing?

After Obamacare, we’d be foolish not to think so.

Nobody’s Perfect: Daniel Hegwood VS HSBC

Nobody’s Perfect

This week, we have two bank robbers…Daniel Hegwood and HSBC.

We truly do have the rich VS the poor in this story: Let’s start with Daniel.

Daniel Hegwood, 33, entered a downtown Wells Fargo over the weekend, told a teller he had a dangerous bomb inside the fast food bag and demanded money. He then fled on foot with a “substantial” amount of cash, leaving the bag behind, police said.

Yep…he figured he’s just take a McDonalds bag, fill it with an apple pie, and point it at the teller. It worked, but they did catch him, so he will be spending some days if not spending his loot, getting apple pies in jail. By the looks of him, it could be a godsend he was caught.

And then we have HSBC…or should I say, half the HSBC bank’s officials who have been laundering money for Mexican Drug Cartels. Their apple pie is , American Express, and thousands of stolen identities to set up fake accounts.

This report from the most impeccable Jerome Corsi of WND:

A former employee of HSBC  in New York has 1,000 pages of customer account records he claims are evidence of an international money-laundering scheme involving hundreds of billions of dollars by the global banking giant, which reportedly is under investigation by a U.S. Senate committee. John Cruz has delivered to WND customer account records he says he pulled from the HSBC computer system before he was fired.

Cruz was terminated Feb. 17, 2010, after two years at HSBC for “poor performance,” but he contends he was let go because senior management didn’t want to him to pursue his personal investigation.

One of the largest banks in the world, London-based HSBC has about 7,500 offices in more than 80 countries and territories in Europe, North and South America, the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East and Africa.

Cruz told WND he has “firsthand knowledge and proof of how HSBC transferred billions of dollars through accounts linked to companies that did not exist.” Cruz said that in the two years he worked for HSBC, he eventually discovered that money laundering was being carried out not only by branch managers but also by senior officers of the bank, both within the U.S. and internationally.

“From what I saw, I came to suspect HSBC had become the Mexican drug cartels’ bank of choice,” he said.

Well, there you go.

Who gets the award for the Nobody’s Perfect, biggest bank robbing scumbag of the week?

Do you HAVE to ask?

And to think, I have taken out many a loan from HSBC. Not only did the London Banks get trillions of our stimulus dollars, it seems they are getting a fair amount of stimulus from our drug addicts.

By the way, the people whose identities were stolen had no clue they had billion dollars in accounts.

Too bad they didn’t put Daniel Hegwood’s name on one of those accounts….He wouldn’t have had to rob a bank.

Wal-Mart Hosts the Federal Reserve?

Nobody’s Opinion

Banks…have become a dirty word. Attach the minds-eye image of Barney Frank sweating in a wet tee-shirt in front of the Bank of America, and you might want to take a shower. Everyone knows by now, it was Barney who kept up the good work of telling us all that the banks of Fannie and Freddie were sound, before the great bank robbery of the history of the planet happened. In fact—I bet Barney personally thought up those names…Freddie and Fannie…in honor of some of his past stable boys.Last year, we saw all the Kings Horses (but none of the King’s men) came tumbling down in 2011, and yet, I managed to not panic. Every pundit from FOX to CNN was screaming..”BUY GOLD! BUY GOLD! BUY …BUY!!!”

And bring us all your little gold bracelets too, my little kiddies! I have no money to buy gold…but Glenn Beck did, and he bought enough for all of us. He told us so, every single day.

My bank, the Bank of America, has always been pretty good to me. I always thought..gee..if I go to South America some day to go white water rafting in the Amazon (okay, I dream) …my bank will be there.

How cool.

When the Bank of America announced that it was going to add a five dollar fee to debit card transactions last year, right away, there was Tricky Dick Durbin (come on…I miss saying Tricky Dick) on the Senate floor telling everyone in the world who had their money with Bank of America to take it out and put it in a local bank, Nobody was a bit concerned. Remember that?

“Bank of America customers, vote with your feet, get the heck out of that bank,” Durbin said. “Find yourself a bank or credit union that won’t gouge you for $5 a month and still will give you a debit card that you can use every single day. What Bank of America has done is an outrage.”

(Right. Five dollar fee…as compared to Obamacare, Dubin? Which will cost more?)

Well…sure, I could do that. But then I’d have to drive ten miles out of my way to my new little community bank, every time I wanted to go to the ATM. The gas alone would be suck up my five dollars.

What to do? Well…I like to tiptoe first before I do anything..you know…stick my toe in the water…so I looked for the nearest community bank near me…and there it was.  It was even called First Community! I put a whole $75 dollars in. I was officially supporting a small Bank— God…bless my little American soul.

As I was throwing out my junk mail tonight, and I came upon a brochure from my new little bank. Much to my surprise, my new little community bank’s President had been appointed to the Federal Reserve Bank. And more importantly, you could go to Wal-Mart and do your banking there! He wanted you to do that. Cash that check and go spend!

Let me see….My little community bank was part of the Federal Reserve and it was using Wal-Mart to get customers…have I missed something here?

From Forbes:

Four years ago, Wal-Mart abandoned its plans to obtain a long-sought federal bank charter amid opposition from the banking industry and lawmakers, who feared the huge retailer would drive small bankers out of business and potentially conflate its banking and retail operations. Ever since, Wal-Mart has been quietly building up à la carte financial services, becoming a force among the unbanked and “unhappily banked,” as one Wal-Mart executive.

Let’s talk about this Wal-Mart, We do everything but change your underwear retail experience, shall we?  

In the past twenty years, America has replaced its vast network of privately owned retail shops to the big shopping retail stores: Home Depot and Lowes have annihilated the small mom and pop hardware stores. This is progress…we are told. This is American capitalism at its finest. Our country was flooded with cheap products from China.

When Wal-Mart popped up all over the world..you STILL had competition: you had Kmart and Target.

Competition is good–Right? So said Adam Smith. Competition is what makes capitalism so great…so….this year, my local Wal-Mart is going to move a few miles down the street…just so it can be between K mart and Target. Almost on the same block.

Kmart will be crushed. We all know it’s days are numbered. I know it’s the job of the CEO’s to smash all competition…but when there’s no one left standing, you have a monopoly. And that’s NOT good. That’s China. One Store. One Party. One Food supply. Yuk.

Nobody is confused here: Bank of America…is not part of the Federal Reserve…right? BUT…Wal-Mart is hosting banks from the Federal Reserve in its stores…which go all over the world. And..what if…Wal-Mart is the last store standing, and it holds the cheapest banking rates in the world, and those banks are all owned by the Federal Reserve some day?

Aren’t we all suppose to be going towards MORE competition..not less? Isn’t that just a bit too…scary? All the little banks will go under, and the only ones left standing will be the big ones…and the Federal Reserve Bank will be the only place the lower classes will be able to bank. It might not happen…but then…did you ever think that we’d have a President named Barack Hussein Obama?

Wal-Mart’s slogan is: Low prices, everyday. I don’t know about you…but the last time I was in Wal-Mart, all I wanted to do was leave.

Obama would be proud. Wal-Mart is fundamentally changing America. When all Wal-Mart’s competition is gone, you will be able to buy everything you need…in just one store, and you will get your money right there at Wal Mart. To the Federal Reserve and Wal-Mart, it’s a win/win.

I remember not too long ago, Rush Limbaugh lauding the wonderful world of Wal-Mart..how it helped the poor with low prices, what a model of success it was…etc. etc…but sometimes you can get too much of one thing. The rich will aways have their stores, but the poor will have only one place to go: Wal-Mart. It’s already the story here in North County, St. Louis.

 The banking will be cheap, the groceries will be…cheap. The drugs will be cheap….but the price you really pay, you might never know.
