Bank Of America, Wikileaks And Eric Holder - What The U.S. Attorney General Doesn't Want You To Know

By Dr. Pitchfork

It is hard to imagine a more convoluted clusterf*** of corruption.  Consider it the latest chapter in the story of upside-down, post-bailout, Bizarro-World America.  The US attorney general, Eric Holder, has been going hammer and tongs at the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights in order to silence a news organization, Wikileaks, which is about to publish bombshell evidence of corruption -- and possible criminal activity -- at one of America’s largest banks.  Meanwhile, Bank of America, the likely target of Wikileaks’ next big story, refuses to process payments for Wikileaks, presses on with its dirty foreclosure and and debt collection practices, and continues to lie about the value of assets on its books.  At the same time, Holder has gone almost two years without mustering the courage to investigate or indict a single executive at even one of America’s largest banks.  And although Wikileaks promises to lay in his lap several gigabytes of evidence that might lead to such an indictment, Holder has instead initiated “an active, ongoing criminal investigation” of Wikileaks!

But here's the question no one seems to be asking:

  • Why hasn't Eric Holder asked to see the evidence, which Wikileaks claims to have, that executives at one of our largest banks may have committed serious crimes?

Let's be honest, Holder doesn't really give a rip about financial crimes, but the media should at least be asking him why he doesn't want to see the evidence.  We know he'd love to get his hands on Julian Assange's hard drive -- why doesn't he want to see Brian Moynihan's (or Ken Lewis's)? 

For some reason, Holder and the rest of the Obama administration would rather endanger our Constitutional rights to due process and a free press by persecuting journalists on specious charges, than to actually do their job and enforce the law.

Once again, the banks and bankers are protected at all costs, while the little people (and our Constitutional rights!) must pay the price.  Why is Holder going after Wikileaks and why isn’t he already investigating or indicting people at Bank of America?  Who does Holder think he works for – us or the big banks? 

It’s hard not to conclude that the answer to these questions was revealed recently in the unfortunately chosen words of Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL):  “Washington and the regulators are there to serve the banks.”  But this only confirms something Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said a couple of years ago.

We would love to be able to find some heroes among the political class working to thwart all this villany, but there aren’t any.  Ironically, Republicans and their apparatchiks (as well as Joe Lieberman) have been criticizing Holder and Obama for not doing more to side-step the Constitution and indict, or indeed assassinate, Julian Assange and anyone else associated with Wikileaks.  This is so typical of Washington. 

Basic issues of freedom and the rule of law are twisted and distorted so as to result in another skirmish in the culture war, which can then be used as fodder for political fundraising and campaign attack ads.  The Democrats trample on the Constitution like it’s the grapes of wrath and the Republicans still find a way to charge them with being “soft on terror." 

The upshot, as usual, is that bankers are thereby able to ride off into the sunset with their taxpayer subsidies and million-dollar bonuses.  As usual, everyone gets what they want except the American people.  Happy Holidays, America.

The First 10 Major Cities That Will Run Out Of Pension Fund Money

Dec 27, 2010 at 12:26 PM | Registered CommenterDailyBail

As it says goodbye and good riddance to 2010, is America also saying so long to depression, both the economic and the psychic varieties? Is double-dip now just another way to get your hot fudge sundae? Riding the Metro North commuter train from Pleasantville to Grand Central Station on the last weekend before Christmas, you’d certainly suppose so. The consumer confidence index had been rising for two straight months now and most of it seemed to be on board, wallets bursting to get in on the action. Heavy-set thirtysomethings on parole from suburbia, fists popping cans of Bud Lite, boomed to all who wanted to hear (Ben Bernanke maybe?) that they were “gonna do some serious shopping DAMAGE dude!” In the month before Christmas Grand Central turns into a retail bazaar, and to the strains of jingle tills vendors selling silk scarves, Thai and Polish jewellery, hammered leather goods and fancy stationery were all doing brisk trade to elbow-working crowds.

yes it was my namesday...when i was a kid i would drink a small glass of wine with my dad and get a few silver dollars from my greek relatives on my namesday each year...it's a traditon of the orthodox church i guess...and i still have every single one of those silver dollars....;-)

LOL That's awesome.

Daily Bailers, I think there's a link in the story, but below is a link that connects to the best working Wikileaks mirror site. I highly recommend going to the actual site(s) and just browsing the memos. You might see something you can provide commentary on.

Alternatively, you can also use the Internet Archive to view older versions of Wikileaks, which has some pretty random stuff on it.

i have about 50 silver dollars from the 1880s thru the early 1960s...and about the same number of silver half-dollars, quarters and dimes...all from relatives on my birthdays and namesdays when i was a kid...and they always told me..."these are pure silver, not like today's coins...so do NOT spend them..."...

and i listened...

@Dr. Pitchfork.... Before I put my lump of coal up for sale on e-bay, I was wondering if you could use it. Santa told me that my Tewk (God bless Canada) was made in China and there may be issues with lead and mercury...... Lloyd can keep it!

Your answer...

Because Wikileaks is working with the Obama Administration. Most of the leaks so far hurt one person, Hillary Clinton. Obama was sending a warning to Bill not to let his crazy wife run in 2012.

The perverted Wikileaks founder is now going to write a book, looks like he doesn't have Obama's okay to release any more documents at this time.

Cold Snap, that's a snappy answer, but hardly the case.

What WikiLeaks revealed to the world in 2010
Dec 27, 2010 at 4:20 PM | Registered CommenterDr. Pitchfork
Obama shouldn't be shutting down wikileaks, but with all the information NOT pointing to Obama i agree with ColdSnap. I believe they have incriminating evidence against obozo and just like all of his information that has been hidden it won't be leaked. There is a price for everything - did obama hit the price of Julian Assange? Was Julian Assange going to come up with information about obama and that is how he was actually caught? There is so much more to this yet so little is out. Let it all rip. While I understand somethings must be protected such as secrets that could let the enemy know things about our defenses, etc, corruption in the government is NOT one of those things. Our government was NOT intended to be a big secret and all this BS about Obama and friends NEEDS to come out somehow. People might not like Julian Assange and his personal life, but this isn't about him.

Do not forget when Obama and Clinton met at Diane Feinsteins home. Deals were cut.

Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in.

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in.

In their ties with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking.

Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.

When I filed my lawsuit against Bank of America, I thought of the many others out there in the same situation. It was then that we decided to educate the public on what these piggy banks are doing, as well as unite us all together as one voice. Please help me turn this David vs. Goliath modification process, into a Goliath vs. Goliath.

Please stand with me and send an email to Bank of Abusing America that states that we will no longer tolerate their potentially illegal, fraudulent, irregular and abusive business methods.

So please send your email directly to Bank of America and include the following:

1. Your name
2. Your complaint concerning your experience with Bank of America.
3. Please end your email “I support John Wright vs. BofA Lawsuit!”
4. Please send a copy of your email to piggybankblog@earthlink.net
5. Please send your email to BofA CEO Brian Moynihan:


I have created piggybankblog.com for all of those who have been abused by Bank of Destroying Americas potentially irregular, fraudulent and simply abusive home loan modification process.

Divided we might have fell America. UNITED WE MUST STAND!

My name is John Wright AND I AM FIGHTING BACK!

"Why hasn't Eric Holder asked to see the evidence, which Wikileaks claims to have, that executives at one of our largest banks may have committed serious crimes?"

Mr. Holder, I know you together with one of your minions are reading. The floor is all yours. Perhaps you can explain how you know that the cards held by W-leaks are false before you've seen them.

We're waiting.
