Glass Stegall was repealed in 1999. Since 2000 this firm bundled over a trillion in mortgages.

Regarding Mr. Nelson at Mckee and Nelson. He worked for the Treasury Department and IRS. And we wonder why these guys get away with the shit they do.

Have a look at the FEDs MBS.xls spread sheet. It lists the MBS they purchased and sold from 1/5/2009 to 7/8/2010 as part of QE1. Each line appears as a separate transaction. There are 2 other fields “Trade Amount” which is the face value of the security and “Price” which is the actual amount paid. The total trade amount of all those categorized as “Purchase” is 1.85 trillion dollars. The amount paid was a little over 877 Billion. So the fed paid the “Price” of about 47 cents on the dollar.
During this same time they also sold Securities The total trade amount of all those categorized as “Sale” is 600 Billion dollars. They were sold to various banks for the “Price” of 148 billion dollars, about 25 cents on the dollar.
So 1.85 trillion bought minus the 600 Billion sold, leaves 1.25 trillion dollars. Which matches what they say they have.
Here is an over simplified version of what I think happened.
Toasters sell for $10 each. During an audit it is discovered you have $0 and 185 broken toasters which you can’t sell dragging down your balance sheet. I come in and give you $880 for those toasters. You now have $880 and a clean balance sheet. I have 185 bad toasters on my balance sheet. I let you cherry pick the toaster parts and help you fix the bad toasters. We are able to fix 60 of them. I sell those 60 to you for $148. You now have $1332 (880-148 +600 dollars worth of good toasters). You have been re-capitalized and I am only left with 125 really bad toasters on my balance sheet, which I record in the positive column, since no one is going to audit me. It is a win-win for us all. BTW Be sure to give you self a huge bonus for that nice profit you made this year. Ain’t it great to be bankster buddies?

Foreclosure fraud bombshell.


I want to concentrate on what started it and who benefited including those that investigated or decline to investigate it, who knew what was happening and the ensuing cover up.

The timeframe of 2000 seems to be ground zero, everything after that is directly related.


Repeal of Glass-Stegall, mortgage bundling, CDO's, sham tax havens, budget cutbacks to investigative agencies, refusal to investigate mortgage fraud, cover-ups and on and on.
