Wounded Warriors Project is a Fraud- Making Millions Off Disabled Veterans


My first experience with the Wounded Warriors Project came in 2006, when I made several donations from between $200 and $500 to the organization. I was a stock broker at the time and my income allowed for such idiocy. I guess you could say that I had more money than I had sense, but more importantly, I gave the money because I felt that I needed to do something to take part in the war effort, and what better way than to provide financial assistance to those who were coming back from the wars in the Middle East maimed and wounded. At least that is where I thought the money that I was donating was going.  Continue reading

NYT: JPMorgan Faces Multiple Criminal Investigations




Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin Indicted


(USA TODAY)   Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has been indicted on 21 federal corruption charges including wire fraud, bribery and money laundering.

The charges are the outgrowth of a City Hall corruption investigation that already has resulted in guilty pleas by two former city officials and two businessmen.

The counts include wire fraud, bribery, money laundering, filing false tax returns and conspiracy.

Nagin, a former cable television executive, was a political novice before being elected to his first term as mayor in 2002, buoyed by strong support from white voters.

Hurricane Katrina in 2005 elevated Nagin to the national stage, where he gained a reputation for colorful and sometimes cringe-inducing rhetoric.

During a radio interview broadcast in the storm’s early aftermath, he angrily pleaded with federal officials to “get every doggone Greyhound bus line in the country and get their asses moving to New Orleans.”

In January 2006, he apologized for a Martin Luther King Day speech in which he predicted New Orleans would be a “chocolate city” and asserted that “God was mad at America.”

Strong support from black voters helped Nagin win re-election in 2006 despite widespread criticism of his post-Katrina leadership. But the glacial pace of rebuilding, a surge in violent crime and the budding City Hall corruption investigation chipped away at Nagin’s popularity during his second term.

Nagin could not seek a third consecutive term because of term limits. Mitch Landrieu, who ran against Nagin in 2006, succeeded him in 2010.

Nagin has largely steered clear of the political arena since he left office. On his Twitter account, he describes his current occupations as author, public speaker and “green energy entrepreneur.” He wrote a self-published memoir called “Katrina’s Secrets: Storms After the Storm.”.

Tax on flu vaccines help fund national debt. (Twice as sick)

(Examiner) – The new flu shot has a 40 percent failure rate, according to reports, but that’s not stopping Uncle Sam from slapping a tax on it.

Legislation is moving through Congress to impose a 75-cent tax on new seasonal flu vaccines, as the government already does on existing vaccines. The tax money is used to fund the The Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund which covers vaccine-related injury or death claims for covered vaccines.

Without the tax fund, officials said, drug makers wouldn’t make new vaccines to replace older ones.

The website Speak With Authority noted that the fund has about $3.5 billion in it, but it’s paid out only $2.5 billion in the last 25 years.

Says the site: “Although the taxes raised by the vaccine tax go into a ‘Trust Fund,’ this trust fund, like most government trust funds, is on paper only. According to the most recent report on the fund, November 2012, the balance in the fund is nearly $3.5 billion. Since the program’s inception in 1988, the fund has paid out only $2.5 billion in 25 years for cases involving all vaccines, not just the flu vaccine. The balance in the fund could conceivably last another 25 years with no further tax revenue. The $3.5 billion balance, of course, is ‘invested’ in ‘US Treasury Securities.’ In other words, financing a portion of the $16.5 trillion national debt.”

U.S. regulator sues JPMorgan over WaMu mortgage securities


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. credit union regulator sued JPMorgan (JPM) and Washington Mutual late Friday over $2.2 billion in mortgage securities sold to credit unions that collapsed because of losses from the securities.

The suit is the third the regulator, the National Credit Union Administration, has filed against JPMorgan involving mortgage losses, and the second in the past month.

In December, it sued the bank over $3.6 billion in securities sold by Bear Stearns, which JPMorgan acquired during the financial crisis. In June 2011, the NCUA sued over some $1.4 billion in securities in which JPMorgan was the underwriter and seller. Both suits are still pending.

JPMorgan bought the assets of Washington Mutual in 2008 after it failed and was seized by regulators.

In the Friday lawsuit, the NCUA accused the bank of making misrepresentations in underwriting and selling mortgage-backed securities to U.S. Central, Western Corporate and Southwest Corporate federal credit unions.

The three credit unions became insolvent on the losses and were placed into NCUA conservatorship, the agency said.

“The damage caused by the actions of firms like Washington Mutual has been extremely expensive to contain and repair,” NCUA board chairman Debbie Matz said in a statement announcing the lawsuit, “it’s only right that the people who caused the damage be required to pick up that burden, as well.”

The lawsuit adds to a growing list of cases JPMorgan, the largest U.S. bank, is fighting over conduct tied to the financial crisis, including the conduct of entities it acquired at the height of the crisis.

A JPMorgan representative could not immediately be reached for comment.


In the past two years the agency has brought similar actions against Barclays Capital (BARC.L), Credit Suisse (CSGN.VX), Goldman Sachs (GS), RBS Securities (RBS.L), UBS Securities (UBSN.VX), Wachovia and others.

Most of the cases are pending, but it has settled claims against Citigroup (NYS:C), Deutsche Bank Securities (DBK.DE) and HSBC (HSBA.L) for around $170 million.

The credit union regulator has been trying to recover losses related to the failure of five institutions that it seized in 2009 and 2010 after they ran into trouble due to the crumbling housing market.

The wholesale credit unions have experienced more troubles than their retail counterparts because they did not face the same restrictions on permitted investments, leading to big losses during the financial crisis.

Pediatricians Want to Keep Thimerosal in Vaccines Despite Health Risks



(Occupy Corporatism) – The American Academy of Pediatrics (APP) has released a statement in favor of Thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative that is detrimental to the health of everyone who is vaccinated.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the APP are collaborating to say that Thimerosal should not be banned as an ingredient in vaccines in the US as well as a proposed banning of the toxin coming from the United Nations.

Dr. Louis Cooper from Columbia University states that research shows that Thimerosal does cause harm to children.

In 2004, the US Institute of Medicine conducted a safety review that found no evidence was viable to state that Thimerosal is connected to the soaring incidents of autism. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concurred with this finding in a study released in 2010. Thimerosal is ethyl mercury that has dramatic toxic effects against the health of the human body. The UN Environmental Program (UNEP) has listed mercury as a global health hazard. The UNEP would like to see a treaty that protects against Thimerosal be created.

The Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs have provided the UNEP with researched evidence that outlines without dispute that Thimerosal is dangerous to the human body from exposure in vaccines and dental fillings that contain mercury-based silver amalgam. With this research, the UNEP has a plan to phase out Thimerosal because of its attachment to neurological disorders, autism and other health disorders.

WHO stated earlier this year that they would consider replacing Thimerosal, before completely changing their minds and supporting the use of this mercury-based preservative which is known to be highly toxic. This would save 84 million children in under-developed nations that are exposed to Thimerosal through vaccine initiatives propagated by the UN and WHO.

Dr. Walter Orenstein, associate director of the Emony Vaccine Center at Emony University decries that in nearly 2 decades of research there is no conclusive “evidence of significant harm . . . from use of thimerosal in vaccines.”

The EVC is affiliated with other interested groups that would benefit from keeping a mercury-based preservative in vaccines such as:

• CDC • AVAC, funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation • National Institutes of Health

Orestein asserts: “Reducing mercury exposure is a wonderful thing. [However], we need this exception because thimerosal is so vital for protecting children.”

Propaganda studies have suggested that children of mothers who had two or more instances of flu had a doubled-risk of being diagnosed with autism prior to the age of 3; as well as simply having a fever. Also attributed to the development of autism in children were the uses of a pharmaceutical grade anti-biotic during pregnancy.

This study gives governmental agencies like the CDC an excuse to disregard scientific data correlating autism to the use of mercury-based preservatives like Thimerosal to the onset of autism. Other alarmist researchers claim these findings are “noteworthy” because of the extensive range of mother and children interviewed. The fact that the conclusions are bogus does not register with these so-called experts.

In 1997, a study which proved the link between autism and vaccines was irgnored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and suppressed by the CDC.

Laura Hewitson, Ph.D. and lead researcher, studied macaque monkeys that were given the exact same MMR vaccine as children in 1994 – 1999. The results entitled “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study” were published in Acta Neurobiological Experiments in 2010. This vaccine has the mercury based preservative Thimerosal.

Hewitson discovered that: “Vaccine-exposed and saline-injected control infants [monkeys] underwent MRI and PET imaging at approximately 4 and 6 months of age, representing two specific timeframes within the vaccination schedule . . . These results suggest that maturational changes in amygdala volume and the binding capacity of [11C]DPN in the amygdala was significantly altered in infant macaques receiving the vaccine schedule.”

The research paper documented that there were significant biological changes and altered behaviors that occurred in the vaccinated monkeys that were identical to children diagnosed with ASD (autism).

Sufferers of autism develop a broad spectrum of symptoms ranging from:

• Mild social awkwardness • Asperger’s syndrome • Profound mental retardation • Debilitating repetitive behaviors • Inability to communicate

The unvaccinated monkey exhibited no changes or symptoms whatsoever.

In 2003, a study came out of Denmark that showed that when doctors stopped using vaccines that contained the mercury-based Thimerosal, the incidents of autism began to dramatically reduce. When the study was published by the CDC, the agency changed the findings to say that the removal of Thimerosal was actually the direct cause of the rising autism rates.

The authors of the study contacted the CDC, regarding their change without the express permission of the authors prior to publication. An investigation concluded that the editors of the Journal were coerced by the CDC to print the revised data.
