Hope it was just my tin foil hat picking up crazy vibes. Thats one hell of a digger, lets hope we dont need one like that. But its good to know that they wouldnt be out of reach. Yes these people have been doing this for ever and smiling in our faces. The whole time. Man i must have divy/sucker or what ever, written on my forehead. If I`d only known then I could have bent over first and greased my a$$. (as if ! ) All we have to do to bring it to a halt, is to stop working. Every one just dont go to work. Yes of course help your friends and every one else the best that you can. But just dont comply with their system. We really are in it all togeather. Thanks to the politicians lawers and banksters. If the ships going down, then they are the first over board with out a life raft in my mind.

I think one of the problems here the language used, particularly by the MSM. It's called at most fraud, or insider dealing. I think we have a perfectly good word for this ... treason.

Let's call it what it is. Then these bankers are traitors. Here in the UK we have a long history in dealing with traitors. We need to round them up and take them to the tower.

If the crime was a cartoon, it would go a little something like this:

Where do a lot of these politicians that make up the government come from?
From the Joe Six pack types?

They come from places like Wall Street and Major Corporations to help they and their cronies out.
Just from Goldman Sachs alone, there have been hundreds that have gone through the revolving door in "their government" they bought.

Who writes the banking policies?
Well, that is left up the Banksters themselves, and then their crony Bankster politicians that are also on the take have to pass it to see what is in it.

Fantastic Video. Thanks for posting. Please forward to your friends and spread the news.

It's very clear that contrary to the republican platform that govt. needs to get out of private business, govt. should be regulating these businesses. Sorry but time after time these banks and big businesses will screw everyone around them just to make a dollar. With the lack of keeping these businesses in check, there is no accountability and that is why you are seeing a rampant display of corruption in all aspects of business.

These clowns should be serving 10+ years behind bars for this. Enough is enough.

Sweetheart, who do you think is allowing the theft? Whom do you think benefits from it? Why do you think banks got so powerful in the first place? If your answer is anything other than government, government, government, you are sadly naive.

Oh I am sure they are all thinking of the next scam to do. They have been scamming us for the last 12 years and no one notices it until its too late. You could show people proof while its happening, but they won't believe you until CNN shows it..

a little late to the discussion, but I am starting to see alot about this and how it's affected cities, communities, ect.

thought I'd post a video for yas.

many of the pension funds and such were peddled off to pension funds and what nots, and this has had a bad effect on the cities and localities...

how long will it take before someone takes notice!!

they are tearing down the establishments that hold society together??

I have been watching this news on tv and it is upsetting to know that trusted banks of the community would consider doing this kind of thing. and so soon after the previous uproar of bank scandel of goldman sachs and iceland banks.
but of course it is not reported about the more deeper and meaningful conspiracy about rothchild rockefeller people who have committed such grand fraud that would dumb the senses of the general public.

At the moment there is no news about any of those involved in libor going to jail. I think lessons have not been learnt and something like this will happen again and again.

I wanna know who the F^#+[r's are on the phone every day. Names, date of birth and social security numbers. I need a better line of credit. I'm sure they can get an American Express Black.

Chase foreclosed my house.
Citi wants $$
Discover wants to up my interest.

The same rules which we get arrested for if we break the law, do not apply to them? Sack the whole lot of them banksters and politicians. They are all in it togeather. Never mind one bunch of jumped up employees, blaming the other load of tossers, for not doing it during their term of office.
Sack em all the long the short and the tall. Nothing but a bunch of two faced lying thieving twats. The serious fraud squad will know in a months time if they can charge any of them. This must be some kind of a joke on the general population. Rules for them and rules for the people?

no joke...just common practice...oh, a few scapegoats will get light jail sentences if that much, and there will be fines...that's it. what do you want? wealthy bankers held responsible? please, that's just for common folk.

As long as you don't vote for that crooked banker Romney.

The last year has made it clear beyond all doubt, that as long as republicans have any power, they will use that power to protect the banking crooks that have screwed us all.

This topic needs to be pinned to the front of ATS for the next YEAR, and to the front of EVERY similar website on the net.

This is possibly the BIGGEST scandal this century and these slave owners are not gonna take it lying down. If nothing comes from this than revolt is the only option.

I've been thinking long and hard about how we as a collective can begin to start waking up the still asleep masses and bring attention to these criminals.

First, we need to figure out how to do things without getting pepper sprayed and beat with a billy club while being tasered. So, our only option is the internet. But, where can we post topics that won't be censored? Where do the majority of asleep masses gather to discuss? Craig's List.
If everyone went onto their city's Craig's List Rant discussion board and posted the video in this thread, then posted photos of the bankster managers and CEOs in their towns and cities, things may start to roll.
At least on Craig's List you can curse and rant about this without fear of censorship and T&Cs. I've noticed that the majority of Craig's List Rants involve the unemployment issue and racial/political party arguments, so I suggest that we get these folks to see the heart of the issue and stop allowing themselves to be distracted by the non-issues. Not that unemployment is a non-issue, but many of those who frequent Craig's List are small business owners and these are the people we need in order to get things started as well as the ones who are brainwashed by the MSM.
I'm laughing to myself right now as I'm picturing how it will go. The Rant title would say "Have you seen this man?" Then, when it's clicked on, there's a pic of a Wells Fargo/BOA/Citi banking CEO and a list of how they are screwing the general public.
Now, I'm not saying that we need to call for violence against the banksters. I'm saying that we need to simply use whatever communications are available to get the word out about their wicked dealings and inform those who simply rely on the evening news for their info.

Any thoughts about this? Any alternative suggestions?
(If mentioning another website is against the T&Cs, I apologize. But, that's just the way it goes sometimes.)

Please tell me how Obama is any better? He surrounded himself with those so called "bankers" and power elite (perhaps people like Timothy Geithner, who Obama appointed as Sec of the Treasury, who was the head of the New York FED, who was made aware of this manipulation in 2007?)

Keep on making that kool-aid, I am sure some people are drinking it.

reply to post by PaxVeritas

I am sure congress will look mean and wave and point their fingers at Wall Street / 16 banks that manipulated the LIBOR rate.....then nothing will happen.

(and the public doesn't know and doesn't care, ask someone you know what is the libor rate, bet you they have no clue)

Obama has pushed for and signed regulations, that repubs have made every effort to stop, to end wall street fraud. And the Obama admin is currently going after these fraudsters.

The repubs in the Bush admin cheered on the Wall Street fraudsters.

Mitt would end legal actions against Wall Street as his first act.

Obama kept the banksters in place because they held all the cards. He had no choice but to play ball.

Do you really believe these right wing talking points?

Yeah, the Obama admin is superior the last several corrupt repub admins. And like I said earlier, if you aren't worth 10 M, you vote against your own best interest when you vote repub.

Avoid using banks as much as possible. Use credit unions.

Never vote for a free market pol. You might as well vote for monarchy or communism.

Transcript of phone conversation between NY Fed (NYF) and Barclays (BAR):

NYF: And why do you think that there is this, this discrepancy? Is it because banks maybe they are not reporting what they should or is it um ..

BAR: Well, let's, let's put it like this and I'm gonna be really frank and honest with you.

NYF: No that's why I am asking you (laughter) you know, yeah (inaudible) (laughter)

BAR: You know, you know we, we went through a period where

NYF: Hmm

BAR: We were putting in where we really thought we would be able to borrow cash in the interbank market and it was

NYF: Mm hmm

BAR: Above where everyone else was publishing rates

NYF: Mm hmm

BAR: And the next thing we knew, there was um, an article in the Financial Times, charting our LIBOR contributions and comparing it with other banks and inferring that this meant that we had a problem raising cash in the interbank market

NYF: Yeah

BAR: And our share price went down

NYF: Yes

BAR: So it's never supposed to be the prerogative of a, a money market dealer to affect their company share value

NYF: Okay

BAR: And so we just fit in with the rest of the crowd, if you like

NYF: Okay

BAR: So we know that we're not posting an honest LIBOR

NYF: Okay

BAR: And yet and yet we are doing it, because, um, if we didn't do it

NYF: Mm hmm

BAR: It draws, um, unwanted attention to ourselves

NYF: Okay, I got you then
