This is what I was trying to point out. I.E there is no way all these banks paid back 7.7T in full. This is not over by a long shot.

End the FED!!!

this is scary. The could not have been printing this or issuing ST or LT bonds for this. This must be REPO`s or simple borrowing from the East.

A REPO agreement but instead of asset, exchange for power?

Don't all of you remember when this report came out in July? There were foreign banks that were bailed out too. Based on the table on the first page of this article, out of the 16.1 Trillion, only 2.6 Trillion went out to borrowers that were not a bank.

The report that Mr. Hank Paulson put together was 3 pages long. 3 pages for 700 billion dollars. And it states in there "That this case cannot be reviewed by anyone at any time. It surpasses ALL llaws". If they can get away with that they can get away with anything. How sad and depressing.

Brilliant! You might possibly have a bright future in comedy.

this is truly absurd and i can't believe the Fed is getting away with this. For those of you on this site that do not support the OWS movement then shame on you 100%. this is corruption at is finest and without the OWS movement, we wouldve never heard about this. take a quick 15 minutes and watch this youtube video because it will really open your eyes to the f-ed up world we live in. it is entitled DEAR TAXPAYER THE OWS MOVIE and is 15 minutes essentially watching the crooks of the Fed and the US Government lying to congress. It's also 15 minutes of straight CSPAN which no american in their right mind watches because they think its boring. If you do not support the movement please show respect and watch the short film because it relates to not only the movement, but to every single American that pays taxes (aka everyone)

These people are trying to take over the planet. They own the government, the money, the central banks and the information and they are accountable to no-one.. This is just daylight robbery of the people....

This problem is enormous. The people just don't seem to care enough. Too worried about what NFL team is winning or who won another game show. Distractions have all but ruined our thought process

We can't get them off the Xbox,Wii,PS3, etc

When i was at the Ron Paul revolution rally in '08 G. Edward Grffin was asked to sum up his book 'the Creature of Jekyll Island'.
He said it came down to one sentence.
..."can you say the biggest scam in the history of the United States."...
no audit.
no oversight.
private owners.
numbers in a puter - no ink expenses.
CONgres - using the irs to extort our labor in the form of tax dollars to finance their lavish life styles while the rest of bust our butts just to watch our homes be taken away.

My question is real simple.... If THAT MUCH money went out..and it's impossible to get my mind around that figure in a true sense, so I wont try...but where the heck did it *GO*?! There was no freeing up of credit and loan markets to the 6+ billion consumers around the world. There aren't enough within the industry to benefit with numbers that far into the stratosphere. So.... umm.... Say what? Where? ON WHAT?

We're into numbers here that buy nations.. hell, it would buy bundles of nations outright and in cash. Yet we've so quickly becomed conditioned to this insanity the magnitude of what they've done to us doesn't even register a major fuss in the media. We're soooo doomed.

I generally are at odd at your posts (mostly the partisan ones), but this post is spot on and straight to the point. These are questions people should automatically be asking if they knew how much of a gross amount 7.7 trillion actually is. Both the government, investment banks and to some degree wall street need have themselves lower toes first into a large pot of boiling canola oil.

This is completely insane. This just shows are ridiculous the whole money scam is.

I am guessing a lot of thought went into this article when it was written.

The question is , is somebody dropping a very large hint? or is somebody just laughing in our face?? Did you miss it the first time you read it?

Here, some key numbers that illuminate the Federal Reserve's "breathtaking" $7.7 trillion bank bailout

First off, this is my first post to (response/post whatever you want to call it) ATS, so I apologize if I screwed this hole thing up. Anyway I want to know the percentage of individuals who owned the financial institutions that got bailed out by ethnicity, religion, and race. Does anyone know? Is there a thread that was already dedicated to this topic? I'm in the U.S. military and have just learned about this site and about Ron Paul and I am very interested in what I am risking my life for.

Small potatoes.

2005 Banks started giving mortgages to illegal immigrants.

2008 HUD released a report that +5 million illegals WALKED AWAY from their mortgages.

+5 million time average mortgage of $350, do the math.

illegals bought and sold homes between themselves and fled America with mega-Trillions. You can't go after the money. They had no Social Security numbers to track them. They were FOREIGNERS from many other countries allowed to come in and rob and pillage all they could.
