Yellow Alert Status – Tsunami Watch Virgin Island Area/Eastern Caribbean Region

This is a yellow alert bulletin from our watch team.  If you have friends travelling to the region or friends who live there, it is time to at least give them a heads up.  The magnitude and frequency of the earthquake swarms has increased in the last 24 hours prompting this alert.  The region also has a recent history of creating tsunamis and the area of quake activity is on a plate fault line that has had significant movements with previous great quakes.  This is complicated by deep water graduating to very shallow water quickly which can amplify tsunami wave heights very quickly and without much time to react.

Virgin Islands region has had:

  • 14 earthquakes today
  • 118 earthquakes in the past 7 days
  • 141 earthquakes in the past month

 

The 1867 Virgin Island Tsunami

On the afternoon of November 18, 1867, a magnitude 7.5 earthquake occurred in the Anegada trough, located between the US Virgin Islands of St. Croix, and St. Thomas. The earthquake actually consisted of two shocks, separated by ten minutes. These shocks generated two tsunami waves that were recorded at several Island locations across the eastern Caribbean region, most notably on the Islands of St. Thomas and St. Croix.

The first tsunami wave struck the town of Charlotte Amalie, on the island of St. Thomas, approximately 10 minutes after the first shock, and the second wave approximately 10 minutes after the second shock. Both waves struck the harbor at Charlotte Amalie first as a large recession of water, followed by a bore, which eyewitness accounts describe as a 4.5 to 6.1 meter wall of water. At the southern point of Water Island, located approximately four kilometers from Charlotte Amalie, the bore was reportedly 12.1 meters high! The waves destroyed many small boats anchored in the harbor, leveled the town’s iron wharf, and either flooded out or destroyed all buildings located along the waterfront area. The waves also damaged a United States Navy ship De Soto, that happened to be anchored in the harbor at the time of the event. The tsunami produced an estimated 2.4 meters of runup at Charlotte Amalie, and a maximum 75 meter inland inundation.

Fredriksted St. Croix was struck by two large tsunami waves, each approximately 7.6 meters high, according to eyewitness accounts. These waves caused severe damage along the waterfront, washing several wooden houses and other structures a considerable distance inland. The waves destroyed many of the smaller boats anchored in the harbor, and beached a large United States Navy ship, the Monongahela (see photo below). A total of five people died as a result of the tsunami. Eyewitness accounts from Frederiksted indicate that the water withdrew from the harbor almost immediately after the earthquake, which suggests that the first wave to strike here might have been a local tsunami produced by a submarine landslide. Reports from Christiansted, St. Croix, indicate that the tsunami inundated an area up to 91 meters inland. The greatest damage here occurred at Gallows Bay, where the waves destroyed 20 houses and beached many boats.

The 1967 Virgin Island Tsunami

The 1967 Virgin Island tsunami was recorded at several other islands in the eastern Caribbean region. The tsunami produced 1.2 to 1.5 meters of runup, and washed away most of the smaller buildings on the island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. At St. John’s on the Island of Antigua, the tsunami produced a 2.4 to 2 meter runup. At St. Rose on the island of Guadeloupe, the tsunami reportedly struck as a 18.3 meter wave, flooding houses and damaging boats. This extreme value however, is most likely an exaggeration, as it exceed the maximum wave heights reported at the locations closest to the earthquake’s epicenter, and the tsunami waves reported at nearby Basse-Terre where only 2 meters high. At Bequia Island the tsunami washed in as a 1.8 meter wave. At St. George, on the island of Grenada, 1.5 meter tsunami waves damaged boats and buildings. The tsunami was also observed at several locations on the eastern shore of Puerto Rico. At all location the tsunami was marked by an initial recession of water from the shore.

Attention Foreclosure Victims – Just Deserts Being Served to MERS and the Corrupt Mortgage Lenders

It seems that justice is sometimes served slow and cold, but served none-the-less.  If you have been a victim of mortgage fraud and been foreclosed or are about to be foreclosed, this is a must read.  Two recent events that were completed on August 16th may be able to help you and your legal counsel get a leg up in your foreclosure proceedings.

Source: Ellen Brown

These two landmark developments on Aug. 16 give momentum to the growing interest of cities and counties in addressing the mortgage crisis using eminent domain and may directly help those who are now in or about to be in a foreclosure process:

  1. The Washington State Supreme Court held in Bain v. MERS, et al., that an electronic database called Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS) is not a “beneficiary” entitled to foreclose under a deed of trust; and
  2. San Bernardino County, Calif., passed a resolution to consider plans to use eminent domain to address the glut of underwater borrowers by purchasing and refinancing their loans.

MERS is the electronic smokescreen that allowed banks to build their securitization Ponzi scheme without worrying about details like ownership and chain of title. According to property law attorney Neil Garfield, properties were sold to multiple investors or conveyed to empty trusts, subprime securities were endorsed as triple A, and banks earned up to 40 times what they could earn on a paying loan, using credit default swaps in which they bet the loan would go into default. As the dust settles from collapse of the scheme, homeowners are left with underwater mortgages with no legitimate owners to negotiate with. The solution now being considered is for municipalities to simply take ownership of the mortgages through eminent domain. This would allow them to clear title and start fresh, along with some other lucrative dividends.

A major snag in these proposals has been that to make them economically feasible, the mortgages would have to be purchased at less than fair market value, in violation of eminent domain laws. But for troubled properties with MERS in the title – -which now seems to be the majority of them — this may no longer be a problem. If MERS is not a beneficiary entitled to foreclose, as held in Bain, it is not entitled to assign that right or to assign title. Title remains with the original note holder; and in the typical case, the note holder can no longer be located or established, since the property has been used as collateral for multiple investors. In these cases, counties or cities may be able to obtain the mortgages free and clear. The county or city would then be in a position to “do the fair thing,” settling with stakeholders in proportion to their legitimate claims, and refinancing or reselling the properties, with proceeds accruing to the city or county.

Bain v. MERS: No Rights Without the Original Note

Although Bain is binding precedent only in Washington State, it is well reasoned and is expected to be followed elsewhere. The question, said the panel, was “whether MERS and its associated business partners and institutions can both replace the existing recording system established by Washington statutes and still take advantage of legal procedures established in those same statutes.” The Court held that they could not have it both ways:

Simply put, if MERS does not hold the note, it is not a lawful beneficiary…

MERS suggests that, if we find a violation of the act, “MERS should be required to assign its interest in any deed of trust to the holder of the promissory note, and have that assignment recorded in the land title records, before any non-judicial foreclosure could take place.” But if MERS is not the beneficiary as contemplated by Washington law, it is unclear what rights, if any, it has to convey. Other courts have rejected similar suggestions. [Citations omitted.]

If MERS has no rights that it can assign, the parties are back to square one: The original holder of the promissory note must be found. The problem is that many of these mortgage companies are no longer in business, and even if they could be located, it is too late in most cases to assign the note to the trusts that are being tossed this hot potato.

What This Means for Eminent Domain Plans: Focus on San Bernardino

Under the plans that the San Bernardino County board of supervisors voted to explore, the county would take underwater mortgages by eminent domain and then help the borrowers into mortgages with significantly lower monthly payments.

Objections voiced at the Aug. 16 hearing included suspicions concerning the role of Mortgage Resolution Partners, the private venture capital firm bringing the proposal (would it make off with the profits and leave the county footing the bills?), and where the county would get the money for the purchases.

A way around these objections might be to eliminate the private middleman and proceed through a county land bank of the sort set up in other states. If the land bank focused on properties with MERS in the chain of title (underwater, foreclosed or abandoned), it might obtain a significant inventory of properties free and clear.

The county would simply need to give notice in the local newspaper of intent to exercise its right of eminent domain. The burden of proof would then transfer to the claimant to establish title in a court proceeding. If the court followed Bain, title typically could not be proved and would pass free and clear to the county land bank, which could sell or rent the property and work out a fair settlement with the parties.

That would resolve not only the funding question but whether using eminent domain to cure mortgage problems constitutes an unconstitutional taking of private property. In these cases, there would be no one to take from, since no one would be able to prove title. The investors would take their place in line as unsecured creditors with claims in equity for actual damages. In most cases, they would be protected by credit default swaps and could recover from those arrangements.

This could be the legal precedent that has been so eagerly sought.  I would suggest those who might be effected by these rulings read the entire Ellen Brown article and then discuss these findings with your legal representatives.  Although the Bain v. MERS ruling currently only applies in Washington State, it is none-the-less establishing a precedent in law and could be used in defensive arguments.

The important issue here is that cases brought by MERS in a number of situations, MERS cannot locate the original lender and without those records, there is no one that can bring forward foreclosure proceedings!  Hope this helps a few people.  If you know of people in this situation, you might want to pass this information along.  It could save a few family homes and lives, maybe, just maybe.

Finding the Higher Aspects of Ourselves

As we watch the world unfold these days, one has to ask, is this who we really are?  Is our destiny to be at perpetual war, constantly fighting poverty and ignorance, or is there a higher state of reality in which we can envision peace and prosperity for all.  Who are we really?

Are we doomed to be this?[Image]

..Or are we destined to be this?

I don’t pretend to have any answers here.  In fact, I am not even sure I know the right questions.  However, I am at least questioning myself and the nature of who I am and am destined to be.  Maybe that’s the point, just continually asking that question.

There does seem to be something “in the air” that says we are at a crucial decision point as a collective consciousness.  The universe does seem to be confronting us with events and situations that do compel the awakened person to seriously consider their role in the “all of it”.

On one hand, we are confronted with what seems to be a reality of a dog-eat-dog world. Get what you can when you can.  On the other hand, we see ourselves in a much more informed and civil role when we are confronted collectively with disasters or tyrants.  So again, I ask, who are we?

This really isn’t a religious issue, but more of a spiritual issue.  Given the condition of the world and issues we face, it is time to have this discussion, even if it is just with ourselves quietly in our quiet place.

Coastal Area Yellow Alert- Now May Be The Time To Review Evacuation Plans

As our regular readers know, we are constantly monitoring solar, astrophysical, and geological events as the earth does seem to be going through many dramatic changes.  This summer’s heat and drought, seismic events, Greenland’s ice melt, wandering poles, and increased volcanic activity are just a few of the FACTS to demonstrate these changes.

What we do NOT do is subscribe to all of the crap and disinformation floating the internet these days. We do try our best to stick to facts and empirical data to draw our conclusions.  As that is the background to this alert, please understand that we don’t predict events, but rather look at patterns to see if trends are moving in a certain direction.  You have seen that in our previous warnings and alerts.  This alert is no different.  We are NOT saying there is an impending event, but rather there are indications and events occurring NOW that do bear watching closely.

What we are saying now is that it may be a good idea, if you live near a coast plain to review your emergency evacuation plans and go over them with your families and friends to make sure you are prepared to move away from the coast at a moment’s notice.  If and when a warning would come, the faster you can mobilize, the less likely you are going to be trapped on evacuation routes.  One only has to remember Houston or New Oleans during Katrina to understand what we are saying.

Now here is what we are seeing and why we are publishing this alert at this time.

1). Over the past two months, and more specifically over the last two weeks we have seen a marked uptick in volcanic activity, especially in the southern hemisphere.  Volcanos that have been dormant for 100 years or more have started to show activity, especially in New Zealand. There are currently 17 volcanos erupting globally, and that is about 2x average.

2). We have seen a dramatic increase in 6.0+ earthquakes in the last week, and other significant earthquakes in areas that normally are not seismically active.  Further earlier today we had a 7.7 earthquake off the North Japanese Island.  What was worrisome about this quake was not its potential to produce a tsunami, but its depth at over 500+ Kilometers in depth.  This signifies a deep whole plate movement and could indicate plate adjustments in both adjoining plates and opposite plates could occur as a response to this movement.

3). In the US, there have been many reports of unusually military movements in the US.  There have also been naval movements including moving a ship out of drydock and towed to sea at Norfolk.  This just doesn’t happen.

4). Remote viewers from FarSight.Org have been seeing a major coastal event that was seen occurring between August and January of 2013 in MANY coastal cities globally for months now. We know a number of our readers aren’t sure they buy into RV as a science, but these guys are the best in the world and have been amazingly accurate in the past.

After much thought and given these facts, we felt it prudent to issue this alert.  Again, let us emphasize, we are not making any predictions here of an impeding event, as we simply do not have such an ability.  What we are saying to you this may be a good time to review plans and make sure you all know what to do and all of your loved ones do too.  If nothing else, it is always a good idea to exercise such plans.

Things May Not Be What They Seem To Be

Millions of Americans have wondered why the banksters have not been criminally charged for their obvious illegal activities that have destroyed the global economy, devastated the lives of hundreds of millions of people globally, and brought countries to their knees economically.  We are cynical that any justice will prevail and the economic ship will be righted.  We feel our governmental representatives have been bought and all are entirely controlled by the financial cabal.  Certainly when you see big banks admitting to money-laundering, bid rigging, fraud, and market rigging, but still no one individual is being charged with criminal activity, it is easy to feel absolutely helpless.

In the past two years alone, these criminals have paid more than $8 Billion dollars in fines globally and stipulated their guilt, but it seems no one is going to jail.  This is even more disheartening when we learn that those who should be enforcing the law are rolling over like lap dogs such as this news from the Wall Street Journal on 10 August:

Source: Wall Street Journal

“After a yearlong investigation, the Justice Department said Thursday that it won’t bring charges against Goldman Sachs Group Inc. or any of its employees for financial fraud related to the mortgage crisis.

In a statement, the Justice Department said “the burden of proof” couldn’t be met to prosecute Goldman criminally based on claims made in an extensive report prepared by a U.S. Senate panel that investigated the financial crisis.

“Based on the law and evidence as they exist at this time, there is not a viable basis to bring a criminal prosecution with respect to Goldman Sachs or its employees in regard to the allegations set forth in the report,” the statement read. The Justice Department reserved the right to bring charges in the future if new evidence emerges. In a statement Thursday, Goldman said: “We are pleased that this matter is behind us.”

It does seem to be an insult to our intelligence and common sense.  However, we must remember who controls the media, as well as the political system.  We also must be patient.  There are arrests happening globally and they are significant.  From these arrests, much information will surface that will compel even those who are so compromised to act or be grossly negligent and criminally involved themselves.  Am I right Eric?

There are many brave and conscientious men and women risking their lives quite literally on a global basis to do the right thing.  Here are just a few examples:

7/2/12: Gary Foster: Former VP of Citigroup Sentenced to 97 Month in Prison for Embezzlement – (Source: FBI) — Gary Foster, a former vice president in Citigroup, Inc.’s treasury finance department, was sentenced to 97 months’ imprisonment today on a conviction for bank fraud arising from his embezzlement of more than $22 million from Citigroup. Foster embezzled by first transferring money to Citigroup’s cash account and then wiring it to his personal bank account at another bank. Foster used the money to buy real estate and luxury automobiles, including a Ferrari and a Maserati. In total, the value of the seized and restrained property is estimated to be approximately $14 million.

7/6/2012: Ex-Bankas Snoras Owners Arrested Again in U.K. Over Fraud Claims – Bankas Snoras AB’s former owners were arrested again in London today on expanded claims they siphoned at least 1.7 billion litas ($609.5 million) from the failed Lithuanian lender to finance luxurious lifestyles. Russian banker Vladimir Antonov and his business partner Raimondas Baranauskas, who were detained in November and are fighting extradition to Lithuania, were arrested a second time after authorities probing the bank’s collapse in the Baltic country issued another European arrest warrant containing new allegations, John Hardy, a lawyer for the prosecution, said at a scheduled hearing today in London’s Westminster Magistrates Court.

7/10/12: Dozens arrested in loan fraud scheme with victims in U.S, Canada – (Reuters) – Dozens of people were charged in what federal authorities on Tuesday called a highly sophisticated loan fraud scheme that robbed $2.7 million from at least 2,000 victims with poor credit histories in Canada and the United States. Would-be borrowers were lured to websites of 67 fictitious businesses with names similar to well-known lenders such as “Countrywide Funding,” which sounds similar to the legitimate Countrywide Financial Corp., and “Admiral Financial Services,” which mirrors Admiral Financial Corp., authorities said. They were approved for loans in exchange for security deposits ranging from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars – to be sent in advance of the flow of borrowed cash that never arrived.

7/12/12: DOJ: Former Bank of the Commonwealth Executives Arrested for Alleged Fraud – Former executives and favored borrowers at the failed Bank of the Commonweath have been arrested and charged with masking nonperforming assets for their own benefit, in a scheme that contributed to the Virginia bank’s 2011 collapse, the Justice Department said.

7/18/12: Ex-UBS France Employee Charged in Tax Inquiry After Raids – A judge leading a tax-fraud investigation concerning UBS AG’s French unit has charged a second person with aiding in illicit marketing and money laundering. UBS avoided prosecution in the U.S. in 2009 by paying $780 million, admitting it helped thousands of Americans evade taxes and turning over the names of 250 American clients to authorities. UBS later revealed another 4,450 accounts held by clients in the country.

7/19/12: Eleven Charged, Arrests Made In $15 Million Mortgage Fraud Scheme – CAMDEN, N.J. – Eleven individuals from five states are charged in New Jersey for their alleged roles in a $15 million mortgage fraud scam that used phony documents and “straw buyers” to make illegal profits on overbuilt condos, including a defendant who attempted to murder a witness to the scheme, New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

7/20/12: SJ Bank Manager, Husband Bilk Victim of $1.1 M– A JP Morgan Chase bank manager and her husband were convicted Thursday of scamming a 97-year-old man out of $1.1 million in life savings, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney. Prosecutors said that bank manager Christina Bray, 30, befriended the elderly banking client and pretended to manage his financial affairs. Instead, prosecutors said, Bray and her husband, Jimmy Bray, 39, of San Jose, spent the victim’s money on  luxury cars and liposuction. The couple pleaded guilty to several counts of felony elder theft.

7/23/12: Irish banker McAteer arrested by Anglo probe fraud squad officers – Willie McAteer is set to become the first banker prosecuted over the collapse of the toxic Anglo Irish Bank in 2008-2009. McAteer, an executive in the former rogue lender, is due in court in Ireland on fraud charges. Anglo’s former finance director was arrested this morning by fraud squad officers investigating financial irregularities at the bust bank.

7/24/12: Anglo Irish Bank’s ex-CEO arrested for fraud – DUBLIN – Fraud detectives arrested the former chief executive of Anglo Irish Bank and charged him Tuesday over a conspiracy to hide colossal losses at the bank that brought the nation to the brink of bankruptcy. Forensic accountants found that Anglo provided secret loans to 16 insiders on condition they used the €1.1 billion ($1.35 billion) to buy Anglo stock.

7/26/12: FL Title Agency Owner Sentenced for Mortgage Fraud Scheme – (Source: FBI) JACKSONVILLE, FL—U.S. Attorney Robert E. O’Neill announces that U.S. District Judge Henry Lee Adams, Jr. today sentenced Cynthia Darlene Strickland (46, Jacksonville) to 18 months in federal prison for bank fraud related to a mortgage fraud scheme. As part of the sentence, the court ordered Strickland to pay restitution to victims in the amount of $531,356. The court also entered a judgment against Strickland for $178,625, which was the amount of money she received as a result of the scheme. Strickland pled guilty.

7/27/12:TD bank denies wrongdoing after court convicts U.S. fraudster in $7B Ponzi scheme– Robert Allen Stanford was the stereotype of a Texas tycoon, oozing the extravagance billions of dollars buys: a fleet of private jets, yachts and helicopters; mansions, castles and a private island; mixing with celebrities and world despots; being knighted and hosting a world sports tournament where he put up the US$20-million purse. At the height of his outsized life, however, his banking empire collapsed and, last month, a U.S. court exposed his US$7-billion fraud, sentencing the 63-year-old to 110 years in prison. Now, attention is turning to the role a respected Canadian bank may have played in allowing Stanford to strip 21,000 investors of their savings.

7/28/12: UK – Six Sentenced for Insider Trading – UBS and JPMorgan print rooms. One of six individuals sentenced on Friday to a total of 16 years in prison for taking part in an insider trading ring has said the JP Morgan Cazenove print room manager allegedly at the heart of the conspiracy avoided prosecutors by fleeing to Northern Cyprus. Ersin Mustafa, a contractor for Xerox running the secure print room in JP Morgan, was accused of playing a pivotal role in sourcing confidential documents from the bank and from UBS where his brother Ali Mustafa worked – his role also involving the confidential printing of market-sensitive documents, many of them linked to corporate takeover plans.

7/30/12: Iran sentences 4 to death in $2.6B fraud case – TEHRAN, Iran — An Iranian court has sentenced four people to death and given two more life sentences on charges linked to a $2.6 billion bank fraud described as the biggest financial scam in the country’s history, an official said Monday. The trial, which began in February, involved some of the country’s largest financial institutions and raised uncomfortable questions about corruption at senior levels in Iran’s tightly controlled economy.

8/1/12: Former UBS bankers cheated cities by rigging bond bids: U.S. – Three former UBS executives helped deceive U.S. cities and towns by operating a scheme to rig bids to invest municipal bond proceeds, a federal prosecutor said on Monday at the start of the bankers’ criminal trial in New York. Peter Ghavami, Gary Heinz and Michael Welty were charged in 2010 by the U.S. Department of Justice as part of its broad investigation of the $3.7 trillion U.S. municipal bond market. The probe has focused on rooting out schemes to fix prices and rig bids on bond transactions, and has ensnared some of the world’s largest banks. The three men “steered financial contracts to their friends in exchange for kickbacks and other favors.

8/2/12: AmeriFirst Securities Fraud Case Lands Sentence for Seven Defendants – (Source: FBI) DALLAS—The final sentencing was held today in the massive AmeriFirst securities fraud case, prosecuted in the Northern District of Texas, that has resulted in a total of seven felony convictions and prison sentences up to 25 years, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas. Today, John Porter Priest was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Barbara M. G. Lynn to one year in federal prison. Priest, 43, of Ocala, Florida, was sentenced by Judge Lynn to one year in federal prison and ordered to pay $4,742,946 in restitution. He pleaded guilty in September 2010 to one count of securities fraud based on his role in the Secured Capital Trust scheme.

These are just a few of the most outstanding actions.  So, while the controlled MSM media is not now currently reporting these activities, they are going on.  From our close sources, this is but the tip of the iceberg, as a lot of these who were arrested are singing loudly and turning over evidence that will start to bring pressure to those on top of the pyramids.

What we should be doing is demanding from our MSM the reasons why they are not reporting these facts and more importantly why there is a lack of good old fashion investigative journalism.  Where is 60 Minutes when you need them?  We should also put pressure on the White House and DOJ to step up their investigations and begin to take actions that they could take, elections be damned.  The more we push and the louder we speak, the more action will have to be taken.  If you were a victim of the mortgage scams, or you lost half your retirement to these banksters, speak up, take the time to write an email or letter demanding more action.  It really is up to us to be informed and outraged.  This isn’t a red or blue issue, it is a green issue and if we don’t take these actions, we will soon be owned slaves.  Our power is also at the ballot box with an informed vote.  Let’s not continue to send lapdogs back to DC.  Let’s not buy into the rhetoric from both sides and let’s demand action.

Revolution is Coming..But Let’s Do It Right This Time!

Since April of 2009, I have been doing my best to expose the criminal nature of our greedy banksters, traders, and politicians that have been enriching themselves at the cost of the world’s entire economy and off the backs of us who are the real economic engines in society.  Finally, we are beginning to see some actions to finally bring these slugs to justice.

During the next few months many things are going to come to light that will outrage us and we will want to revolt in sometimes violent ways when we understand the level of enslavement we have been subjected to and what the plans of the uber-elite were in relation to population reduction, war making, and false flag operations of all kinds.

We have seen how these same elites have geared up our police forces and armies everywhere to deal with what they anticipate is our violent reaction to the revelation of the truth of what is really going on in relationship to their plans to accomplish this final step in their enslavement plans.

However, we must not fall into this trap as we have in centuries past, as we will only wind up with a false and temporary victory and would soon return to the same conditions that we now find ourselves.

Anger, revenge, violence, and armed revolt are lower aspects of ourselves that cling onto us as if they need a host body to survive, and it is us, in our weaker states, our weaker moments that provide these aspects of ourselves the energy that fuels their prolonged survival. We do not need these lower aspects of ourselves to learn from them any longer, as we have reached a point where their lower vibrations now only serve to weigh us down and keep us bogged down in a lower dimensional state than the dimensional state that now fits us more suitably.

When I saw the rebels in Syria summarily execute those Assad soldiers, I had to shed a tear realizing that although the rebel cause in Syria is a just cause, they had just become the same people that they were so justly resisting.

If there is anything true about 2012 and the New AGE it is we are being called now back to our higher state, our higher self, and unwanted and unneeded aspects of our lower dimensional journey are not invited, are not called, are not necessary any longer for us as a learning tool and to measure ourselves on our progress and our development.

We need to discuss where there is room for improvement in the ways in which we communicate with each other. This is a very important subject, and this is one area of ourselves and of our lives that needs to be corrected, upgraded, raised to higher dimensional levels and standards. Far too often we read negative comments, insults and defamation fired upon one another throughout our MSM and online communities, and I say to you enough of this already, this has gone on too long now. We need to find ways for all of us to better communicate with each other and we need to look harder to find more ways to effectively, politely and appropriately communicate with each other and respond to those who have led personal attacks on us and our choices and points of view.

Please think about this each and every time you feel emotions rising within you that are causing you to lash out at others sometimes rather violently, certainly disrespectfully, many times insultingly, often times hurtful and always unproductive. Please choose your words and your methods of delivery a little more carefully, a little more kindly, a little more respectfully, less attacking, less opinionated, less stubbornly, as none of us has all the answers and there are always possibilities that may hold truth in the end that may surprise us today. Remember, we are always learning and growing, and if this is true, then each and every one of us today does not know something we may know tomorrow.

In light of this, how can we be so sure that so much of what we claim to be fact and force upon another is truth or will be our truth come tomorrow?  We cannot know this, for none of us knows this. This is why we are here in this universe, to learn from these experiences and to grow from the learning of these lessons. This is what it is all about. So to believe so convincingly that our perspective, our point of view is the only correct interpretation of anything is certainly unproductive and an aspect of us that needs to be focused upon and released, as it is not an aspect of ourselves that is welcomed into the higher dimensions.

There are so many more polite and respectful ways to reply to others, no matter what it is they are saying to you, whether they are insulting you, threatening you, or simply treating you disrespectfully and impolitely.

With that said, let’s look at what is really coming to light and the progress that is already underway.

Preface:  Not all banks are criminal enterprises.  The wrongdoing of a particular bank cannot be attributed to other banks without proof.  But – as documented below – many of the biggest banks have engaged in unimaginably bad behavior.

Here are just some of the improprieties by big banks:

  • Engaging in mafia-style bid-rigging fraud against local governments. See thisthis and this
  • Shaving money off of virtually every pension transaction they handled over the course of decades, stealing collectively billions of dollars from pensions worldwide. Details hereherehereherehere,herehereherehereherehere and here
  • Pledging the same mortgage multiple times to different buyers. See thisthisthisthis and this. This would be like selling your car, and collecting money from 10 different buyers for the same car
  • Committing massive fraud in an $800 trillion dollar market which affects everything from mortgages, student loans, small business loans and city financing
  • Pushing investments which they knew were terrible, and then betting against the same investments to make money for themselves. See thisthisthisthis and this
  • Engaging in unlawful “Wash Trades” to manipulate asset prices. See thisthis and this
  • Participating in various Ponzi schemes. See thisthis and this
  • Bribing and bullying ratings agencies to inflate ratings on their risky investments

The executives of the big banks invariably pretend that the hanky-panky was only committed by a couple of low-level rogue employees. But studies show that most of the fraud is committed by management.

We need to ensure these activities do not continue and we need to be determined to bring all of those who would perpetrate such atrocities on us be brought to justice.  We cannot and should tolerate this sociopathic behavior in our positions of economic or political hierarchy.  However, this should be accomplished by persistent public awareness , peaceful protest, and quiet but persistent resolve to educate ourselves.  However, those who call for armed revolts or militia actions should be ignored.  Our most effective weapons are our wallets and our votes.  Indeed, these are the only weapons we have total control of in our lives.

Be encouraged, be hopeful and optimistic, because indeed progress is being achieved, but do so in a calm and confident determination that enough is enough.  Enjoy this brief video I found on YouTube.
