Wikileaks: It Could Take Down a Bank Or Two

Here we go…

Just as I suspected…

The Market Ticker – Wikileaks: It Could Take Down a Bank Or Two

Oh oh… now we know why everyone’s calling for the government to try to arrest Assange:

So do you have very high impact corporate stuff to release then?

Yes, but maybe not as high impact…I mean, it could take down a bank or two.

Will we?

Yes. We have one related to a bank coming up, that’s a megaleak. It’s not as big a scale as the Iraq material, but it’s either tens or hundreds of thousands of documents depending on how you define it.

Is it a U.S. bank?

Yes, it’s a U.S. bank.

One that still exists?

Yes, a big U.S. bank.

The biggest U.S. bank?

No comment.

When will it happen?

Early next year. I won’t say more.

What do you want to be the result of this release?

[Pauses] I’m not sure.

It will give a true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms, I presume. Usually when you get leaks at this level, it’s about one particular case or one particular violation.

For this, there’s only one similar example. It’s like the Enron emails. Why were these so valuable? When Enron collapsed, through court processes, thousands and thousands of emails came out that were internal, and it provided a window into how the whole company was managed. It was all the little decisions that supported the flagrant violations.

This will be like that. Yes, there will be some flagrant violations, unethical practices that will be revealed, but it will also be all the supporting decision-making structures and the internal executive ethos that cames out, and that’s tremendously valuable. Like the Iraq War Logs, yes there were mass casualty incidents that were very newsworthy, but the great value is seeing the full spectrum of the war.

You could call it the ecosystem of corruption. But it’s also all the regular decision making that turns a blind eye to and supports unethical practices: the oversight that’s not done, the priorities of executives, how they think they’re fulfilling their own self-interest. The way they talk about it.

If you were wondering why there’s a sudden desire to shut these guys down, after they “leaked” all sorts of information about the Iraq and Afghanistan war – including classified material, which drew nothing other than “outrage” – well, now you know.

They’re after some banks.

(Gee Eric Holder, why is it that you can’t go after some banks?  I know, it’s a rhetorical question and has a simple answer – you and Obama, along with Congress, are too busy blowing their executives.)

    We ALL should pray for his safety! Of course we want this to end, and let the truth be told NOW.
    But, I am sure there is a very good explaination of why he is holding this information back at this time. It would certainly be a GREAT WAY to start of the new year, wouldn’t you all agree??
    I personally keep praying for a HUGH MIRACLE. SO EVERYONE PRAY FOR ASSAGE’S SUCCESS! Thanks, & GOD BLESS HIM ! 🙂

The banks sold me a fraudulent loan and you would not believe how low these slimes will go . GO JULIAN ASSANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Lisa says:

    MSNBC reported that Julian Assange has documents from Bank of America.

  5. MidFirst Bank/Midland Mortgage/Attorney Steven Leyh/ and the 4-Closure Mill Barrett Burke Wilson Castle Daffin Frappier have all and continue to commit a “CRIME”. Both my husband and I filed chapter 13 B.R. in 95, after we both were injured at work in the 90’s. We paid $1,800/mo. for 5 yrs. and recieved a discharge in 2000. Soon after the discharge order was issued, Cenlar Federal Savings attempted in 2001, to collect on a mortgage FHA/HUD discharged debt. We sent them a copy of the order. They then re-sold the mortgage debt to Aurora Loan Services, they attempted to collect from 2002 to 2005. Wethen sent them a copy of the discharge order and complained to the FTC. They re-sold the debt to MidFirst Bank in 2005. MidFirst Bank attempted to collect by re-aging and also reporting the discharged fha/hud mortgage debt to all 3 reporting agencies. All three showed up on our credit at the same time. Midland Mortgage services the discharged debt to date, in our name”James Green/Prince Ella Green”. BBWCDF a proffessional debt collector and a known 4-closure mill located in Texas also attempted to collect by sending us a letter requesting the debt be paid. We have complained to the FTC, Office of Thrift Supervision, HUD/FHA, just to name a few. BBWCDF, in 96″, motion the court to lift the “stay”, it was granted. They never followed thru, so the debt remained in our name to date, loan #0050694040, ph-800-654-4566. Our attorney filed a lawsuit in 2008 against Cenlar/Aurora/Midland/BB. Cenlar/Aurora was non-suited in 2009. We refused to settle with Midland/BB, because their settlement agreement included the re-payment of the illegal 2000 discharged debt. The defendants, attorney Steven Leyh, filed with the court an unsigned, ambigious settlement agreement, claiming in court records that we made changes to the contract on May 11, 2009, and that we had agreed to settle for $40,000 and re-pay the discharged debt. We never agreed to such non-sense. The Galveston County Court, issued a judgment against us that we accept Midland (MidFirst Bank) and BB $40,000 and sign thier illegal contract which include the re-payment of the 2000 discharged debt. Leyh sent by mail on Sept.10, 2009, a threat letter that if we refuse to sign and accept the $40,000, we could face jail/fine and he would ask the court for attorney fee’s. It is almost 2012 and there is no relief in sight. To have been injured at work as a U.S.Letter Carrier by a vicious dog, enduring 3 surjuries and being forced to file B.R., one would think where is the oversight or justice. It has been 15 years since we filed and to yet be abused and houned by a 2000 discharged debt is just down right “RAPE”. What good is our “2000 Discharge Order”? I understand that “MidFirst Bank is powerful and they bought our 2000 discharged fha/hud mortgage debt with the blessing of the courts and the FTC/FHA/HUD and others, we understand that they are the victims here and they are stuck with this discharged debt on their books. Since there is no other way to get rid of this debt except force us to sign to re-pay it, then I guess we have no choice. My husband is on dialysis, we are both disabled that is why we filed chapter 13 and was issued protection under the injunction. But I guess our discharge order is no good. We were forced to go pro se after the attorny’s wre allowed to file and sign an invalid Rule 11 that did not conform to the Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 11. Could someone help me understand how can a state judge override a Federal Judge “Discharge Order” and allow MidFirst to coerce us to sign the settlement agreement that we never agreed to or saw, which include the re-payment of the illegal discharged debt? HOW? Is this really America. This is the Crime of the century. Today is Nov 30, 2010, December 1, 2010, will be my birthday, almost 60. No there will be no cake or creame, just paper work, and letters. ( Google “Zombie Debt Refuse To Die, Prince Ella”. Our strength rest in God.

    Assange should do a surprise attack and release all the information he has on the banks NOW. Catch them unawares. I am worried about his safety now that he has stated a specific time frame for when he plans the release. Maybe he’s being smart and using this as a ruse, and really does plan to carpet-bomb the world with all the dirt on the banks before the end of the year.

    I also wonder if this is why the Obama administration, being aware of how incriminating these leaks will be, was discussing a bill (a few months ago; I read it on HuffPost) to create an Internet kill switch.

    Time is of the essence!

    Assange is my new hero….I just want to see him catch the government and the banks (one and the same) completely by surprise!

  7. Lit Gant says:

    Wikileaks can show us how good they are by posting all the emails between the bank presidents in the USA on the matter of the foreclosures and also the inner-communications between them about the congressional hearings. Some smart geek out there who has suffered in this fraudulent foreclosure should be able to do this. I am not talking about hacking. I am talking about an employee who has the know how who can copy files and pass them on to wiki leaks.

    Let all the banks fail. Let the Federal Reserve fail. Maybe then we can have a flat tax and no more IRS.

    Remember everyone, Dave Krieger will be in Tampa this coming saturday on December 4th. If you intend to win, you need to learn. The Seminar is free but there is limited seating. Three hours beginning at 2pm: 11731 N. 15th Street at the Tampa Angels facility. If you are an attorney in the Tampa area come on in and learn.

  9. kravitz says:

    Julian Assange is doing god’s real work for that Wall Street guy who said he was doing god’s work.

    What will Fox news do for the anchors like Shep Smith who actually don’t have a problem with JA, knowing this will affect the republicans. Oh, okay, I already know.

    That guy is quite the genius though. One minute, he’s an international troublemaker, next minute, international saviour. One person returns morality and sanity to the highest levels of business? Maybe not. But at least he’s helping sell a lot of mops and antacid.

  10. Concerned says:

    This guy needs to release at least part of the content NOW. Release enough that even if the banksters act to stop him, the game is already OVER.

    He could be in real danger until it is known that more than one person or entity will be able to release the further information.

    If it is applicable to CountryWide, I need the info NOW.

  11. Josh says:

    I’m starting to think of this Wikileaks guy as a hero. I wonder if there will be any emails exposed that will show how government officials who should be prosecuting all the bankster crime are actually engaged in the coverup.

    I’m also glad to hear that he’s going after the pharmaceutical industry next. After that, I’d like to see him take on Big Oil and Big FrankenGene (Monsanto, etc).

  12. housemanrob says:

    All that we will learn from Wikileaks is what we already know……that there is no difference between BANKSTERS and GANGSTERS. With no jobs, failing small business and a disinterested President…we are in DIRE STRAIGHTS! Something has to be done now or it will be too late! Both major political parties are laced with corruption and champions like MARCY KAPTUR are being largely ignored. God help us now!

  13. Peter Everts says:

    Been saying “BBQ a banker” for years.

  14. ny says:

    down with all banksters…

  15. petered says:

    I can’t wait. really. my hope/fear is that wikileaks will not be able to publish such documents, because going after the government is one thing, going after the big power of the money makers is another.

    although i’m everything but religious, i could say i’m praying some entity that mr assange and wikileaks remain in this world and accomplish their mission!

    p.s. yes, some documents about the pharma industry were an interesting leak!

  16. Actually, after reading the interview with ‘WIKILRAKS’ and Forbes, it pleased me to read that not only the banks are next…but then the Pharmaceutical Industry……both being on my shit list. and both are in bed with the government. OB couldn’t wait to get behind closed doors with Pharma…before the Health issue even started…Did they, the Pharma, not demand a whole lot of money in profits and demanded no generic drugs to be used or given…only Pharma brand? Sure was no cost cutting there. Same with banks…only this issue is completely insane…everyone involved is wearing egg on their faces…so we know who they are. Never say never or to big to fail….that is fiction…facts are reality. and the records and documents all have fraud stamped on them. Fraud from the day the mortgage loan was closed.

    • RAMONA says:

      We have to stop them from privatizing our schools, social security, heath care, etc. our children depend on us!

  17. Well. you can’t say there hasn’t been warnings…when you play with fire you get burnt. When you shaft, cheat, trick, exploit the world with evil greed…the fires will engulf you. Time will tell you will survive the blaze. Anyone employed in the Financial Industry with any smarts would come forth with what they know…but fear of harm may prevent that from happening. One may have mixed feelings on the leaks, but the leaks have given transparency and accountability….something this country has not had. Nothing has been ‘open’ to the citizens…for years all has been done behind closed doors…even to this day. We don’t need any more speeches, we’ve had enough lies, and no action has been done to indict the criminal banksters…racketeers, the PONZI scammers, who are the corruption of the world and this country….reason no arrests ??……..Follow the money….it will take you in many direction….but you will complete the puzzle.

  18. Officer of the Law says:

    Why don’t the prosecutors prosecute? Who do they work for?

    If it is a crime to obstruct justice, why do the prosecutors do just that?

    If the prosecutors cover up for criminals, why don’t we just let the criminals run the “justice” system? In case you had not noticed, they do run it. The prosecutors and many judges take cash and let the rich and powerful get away with theft, rape and even murder, so helping banks steal homes is no big deal for those scum.

    Fortunately, there are a few honest judges who will follow the law, but where are the honest prosecutors? They usually end up dead or disbarred before they make it in to management.

    What is one difference between the U.S. and Mexico? People in the U.S. haven’t started going after the criminals in govenrment yet.

    Do the prosecutors really want to help the banksters steal everything and destroy our economy so that we end up like Mexico and they end up like their Mexican counterparts, in constant fear of becoming a statistic in a “drug” war?

    In Mexico, it is known as a civil war in which the drug dealers are seen as the good guys. The mainstream media seems to confuse civil war with drug war just like it confuses fraud with paperwork mistakes.

    Who are the biggest scumbag criminals in America: banksters, their mill attorneys, their rocket docket judges or their do nothing prosecutors?

    When criminals control the “justice” system and the government, what do the people eventually do?

    As Thomas Jefferson said in the Declaration of Independence, “all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    Jefferson also said, “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    Maybe it is time to hold a new Continental Congress.

  19. J Glenn Lowe says:

    All I can say is – Die Banker Die! –
    The world will be a peaceful and well fed place once all of the big banks and the families that run them are DEAD, DEAD, DEAD. Did you know that if everyone in this country were to buy an ounce of silver right now it would crash the Silver Fraud Derivatives market that JP Morgan and Comex have perpetrated for many years now? That is good place to start. Get all of your money away from any big bank now, or you are part of the problem.

  20. Pelucheven says:

    Either some one does something about these criminal entities or we the American people will lose at the end. Our government officials keep kicking the can down the road and in the process we all lose our homes.

    • Stupendous Man - Defender of Liberty - Foe of Tyranny says:

      Perhaps that is the intention – delay any real solution until such time as the fraud abates of its own accord because there is nothing left to plunder.

  21. Pelucheven says:

    we need to encourage bank employees and servicer’s and law firm employees to come forth and use WIKI leaks or all our blogs to expose the fraud and the crimes, why should the continue being a part of the problem when they could be a part of the solution. Why continue victimizing home owners when you could be helping save your country, your communities, your neighbors,

    Or would you rather be left out in the cold as all the robo signers have been thrown under the bus. Why continue being a part of this fraudulent scheme. Help us fight the real dead beats, the real criminals, the real mafia.

    All I gotta say is GO BABY GO!
