  1. betcha Bank of america is not on the list.

    That is george soros recently bailed out bank.

    powder is dry

  2. ahh I see, suing to RECOVER monies spent by soros.

    Yup always in his favor.

  3. Ah yes, the old “You did what we told you to, now you must pay!” bit.

  4. And I want to sue Barney Frank and Maxine Waters!

  5. What about Freddie’s Fannie?

  6. This is like a an arsonist that is also the Fire Chief getting the City attorney to sue the match company to pay for the building he torched!

  7. This is the sign folks, they’re about to collapse the financial system.

    If you’re invested in the market beware the reaction on Tuesday, it won’t be pretty at all.

    They waited for the end of the market day ON A FRIDAY for a reason.

    The other shoe is about to drop, DUCK!

  8. What about Freddie’s Fannie?
    Why did they buy what the banks were selling ?
    Maybe Franklin Raines will come out of his palatial penthouses and enlighten us all

    +++++
    Oh yeah, the gangsta banks need to go straight to hell !
    I wonder if the CBC racists and the anti-American WH have been coordinating their strategies and talking points against whites and Jews

  10. These are the same banks that were involved in the bail outs. They got money from the government, Have they paid the government back? If they have now they will have to pay more. (Hope they haven’t donated money to campaigns yet! They are going to need thier money. Where are Freddie and Fannie. Why are they not being sued. Because they are the ones that grease the hands. they are the ones that grease the hands. Fannie. Why are they not being sued. Because they are the ones that grease the hands. they are the ones that grease the hands.

  11. I worked on M&A deals for a large bank in 80′s and 90′s

    It was a requirement that in order to get government approvals that the acquiring bank promise to make billions of loans to marginal credit risk recipients and/or expand into unattractive markets.

    Plenty of old press releases at time of each mega merger in 1990′s and early 2000′s about how big the extortion was. ACORN was almost always one of the parties with its hand out and a recipient of some grants or contracts.

  12. Wasn’t “risky mortgages” what got us in this mess in the first place? I distinctly remember the (CRA) Community Reinvestment Act issued by Democrats during the Clinton years ordering banks to issue loans to high risk people.

    What they are doing is using the power of the Executive branch to shut down the banks in the long term. This is nothing but fascism.

  13. [[“The [sub-prime] financial engineering that created the Wall Street meltdown was developed by the Pritzkers and Ernst and Young, working with Merrill Lynch to sell bonds securitized by sub-prime mortgages,” Timothy J. Anderson, a whistleblower on financial and bank fraud, told me in an interview.]]

    01001011
    01011001
    01001111
    01010101
