Just days after Jamie Dimon proclaimed that “Bitcoin is a Fraud!” and he would “Fire any trader that worked for him that bought Bitcoin”…JP Morgan Securities LTD in Europe was the 4th largest buyer of the “Bitcoin Tracker One” ETF!!! Not exactly sure about the legality of this, but I don’t think the CEO of the world’s largest “Too Big Too Fail” bank is legally allowed to participate in market manipulations on what he deems a “fraudulent asset!”
Nothing is more depressing than a state court judge that obviously favors the bank’s attorneys – even when the evidence clearly says the trust bank claiming to hold the documents is not the real party in interest. How could a securitized trust not have to follow the UCC securities code, Articles 7-9?
How could an actively trading trust with certificates issues against a static financial asset become a “Holder” under UCC Article 3 when the financial instrument is supposed to be non-negotiable until it is purchased at face value from the trust (to pay off the certificate holders)?
Personally, every case that gets reviewed and every transcript that is read where the Assignment of Mortgages are plainly fabricated and the judge turns a blind eye when he knows the bank attorneys are defrauding the court, just smacks of judicial corruption. And in America – this is very, very sad. Continue reading →
“The rich and powerful, they take what they want. We steal it back for you. Sometimes bad guys make the best good guys. We provide… “leverage”.” — Nathan Ford
In terms simple enough for even a circuit court judge to understand, Nathan Ford explains the mortgage-backed securitization scheme. When the wife of a missing mortgage banking executive said, “Alan said they were seizing properties they didn’t even own and signing foreclosure forms without even reading them…” Ford replied, “Oh yeah, robo-signing… yeah, that’s what they call it. What they do is they sign a thousand foreclosures and they bet that the homeowners don’t have the money to fight the case. Now the courts, they’ll stop it if your husband had proof…”
JPMorgan Chase and federal authorities are nearing settlements over the bank’s ties to Bernard L. Madoff, striking tentative deals that would involve roughly $2 billion in penalties and a rare criminal action. The government will use a sizable portion of the money to compensate Mr. Madoff’s victims.
The settlements, which are coming together on the anniversary of Mr. Madoff’s arrest at his Manhattan penthouse five years ago on Wednesday, would fault the bank for turning a blind eye to his huge Ponzi scheme, according to people briefed on the case who were not authorized to speak publicly.

After JPMorgan Chase’s $13 billion mortgage settlement emerged this week, Jamie Dimon held a conference call with analysts. “It could’ve been somebody else,” the bank’s chief executive said. Who is next on the list?
In a news analysis in The New York Times, Peter Eavis wrote that “there were plenty of other big subprime players — Countrywide Financial, Merrill Lynch and even foreign institutions like Deutsche Bank and Royal Bank of Scotland among them.” Continue reading →
During the financial crisis, while Dr. Evil-ish Wall Street villains like Goldman and Lehman Brothers were getting all the bad press, pundits continually referred to J.P. Morgan Chase as the “good bank.” The myth of Chase as the finance sector’s one upstanding rock of rectitude reached its zenith in July of 2009 with an embarrassingly hagiographic piece in the New York Times entitled, “In Washington, One Bank Chief Still Holds Sway.” In that one, the paper breathlessly praised Jamie Dimon for emerging from “the disgrace of his industry” to become Barack Obama’s “favorite banker.”
“To hear some on Wall Street tell it, no one saw the financial crisis coming. As Jamie Dimon, the chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, explained to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, “In mortgage underwriting, somehow we just missed … that home prices don’t go up forever.” The program in its entirety can be viewed here. It is definitely a must watch!Continue reading →
“Pretty much everybody in the world with subpoena power has hit JPMorgan Chase with requests for information in the Libor-rigging scandal.
The biggest U.S. bank revealed the extent of its involvement in the probe in a filing Thursday morning with the Securities and Exchange Commission, saying regulators in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Switzerland and more had asked it for information:
