For almost sixty years, during the presidencies of Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama, three corrupt confidants of one evil mastermind have been the major long term managers of a US massively homicidal foreign policy of invasions, occupations, undeclared wars, bombings, military threats and CIA led violent overthrows and assassinations throughout the third world.
Only three appointed high government officials have run sixty years of war on small vulnerable nations, that were previously plundered under military occupation by colonial powers for centuries?
Three spooks, John Foster Dulles (aided by his equally corrupt brother Allen, head of the CIA), Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, chosen by David Rockefeller to oversee the deaths of tens of millions of men, women and children, murdered in their own small beloved countries, as often as not in their own towns, villages and homes - millions more dying in violent aftermaths of US crimes against Congo, Guatemala, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Indonesia, Libya and many other places. (Congo alone accounts for from between six and fifteen million dead since the US led Belgians and other Europeans in destroying it as a nation. In every single case of US mayhem (that if totaled up reaches many multi-holocaust proportions), civil war, fomented by the US itself, has been used as a pretext for unlawful barbaric criminal intervention by US Armed Forces, most often prepared by a corporate business dutiful CIA using its far flung network of banks, media, double agents and cooperating NGOs.
Civil wars! Capitalist empires of Europe had been stimulating them under the axiom "Divide and Conquer' since the first Portuguese armed merchant ships set sail, funded by enterprising investors in the fifteenth century.
From the earliest days of investor managed crimes of savage European forces (and later those of the US) falling upon ancient civilizations and cultures, there have been many famous devilishly clever lead investors cleverly creating wars of assured investment profitability. The most infamous in modern history were David's grandfather John Rockefeller and J. P. Morgan.
Morgan, once accused on the floor of Congress of having amassed financial control of America, enabled wars from Mexico to Manchuria. In Mexico, during the Carranza presidency, his top CEO Thomas Lamont was jokingly referred to as the real president of the country, and Lamont was rumored to have written the Japanese press release on the invasion of China. [ Ambassador from Wall Street: The Story of Thomas W. Lamont, J.P. Morgan's Chief Executive, Edward Lamont ]
Morgan and John D. Rockefeller made the mega profitable continuance of WW I possible through the concentrated financial might and lending power of their secretly planned and created giant Federal Reserve (neither Federal nor Reserve, but a private bank of gangster investors).
The super colossal fortunes made before, during and after WW II were prepared by John Rockefeller, often then referred to as the "richest man in the world,' leading, along with Hitler's benefactor, Henry Ford and IrÃ©nÃ©e DuPont, America's banks, corporations, and big business men like Joe Kennedy and Prescott Bush, the crucial investing in a prostrate Germany of low wage labor and collaborating in building Hitler's Nazi armed forces up to world number one. (After the war, John Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company was indicted and tried for "Trading with the Enemy" through it's Latin American branches.)
Young David Rockefeller began his nefarious career in 1945 as a director on the board of the privately organized (by colluding investors) Council of Foreign Relations. Its members, all corporate backed with academic appearing credentials, are regularly presented on our cartelized media talk shows as experts on the world and US foreign policy, which of course they as an inner mafia have a critical hand in manipulating.
Beginning in 1939, the Council achieved great prominence within the government and the State Department, when it established the strictly confidential War and Peace Studies. The secrecy surrounding this group was such that the Council members who were not involved in its deliberations were completely unaware of the study group's existence. It was divided into four functional topic groups: economic and financial, security and armaments, territorial, and political. The security and armaments group was headed by Allen Dulles who later became a pivotal figure in the CIA's predecessor, the OSS, producing 682 memorandums for the State Department, marked classified and circulated among the appropriate government departments.

Readers won't regret a look at CFR's own (frightening?) web site: "About CFR", which features huge photos of its three most public faces above CFR's description:
"The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher, an indispensable resource in a complex world.
Current membership of more than 4,500 living in New York, Washington, DC, across the country and abroad. Its Corporate Program serves an international membership of about two hundred leading global corporations.
The David Rockefeller Studies Program--CFR's think tank--is composed of more than seventy full-time and adjunct fellows who cover the major regions and significant issues shaping today's international agenda. ... including the Center for Geo-economic Studies, the Center for Preventive Action, and the International Institutions and Global Governance Program. Outreach initiatives target ... educators, students; religious and congregational leaders, state and local officials, and nonprofit, civic, and community leaders.
The Washington Program actively engages decision-makers in Congress, the executive branch, and the diplomatic community. The bimonthly Foreign Affairs is widely considered to be the most influential magazine for the analysis and debate of foreign policy and economics. Independent Task Forces work to reach consensus on how to deal with critical foreign policy challenges." [About CFR ]
...His brother Allen Dulles, also an attorney of Sullivan and Cromwell, tasked in 1946 to "draft proposals for the shape and organization of what was to become the CIA," recruited an advisory group almost exclusively of Wall Street investment bankers and lawyers....Over the next twenty years, all seven deputy directors of the agency were drawn from the Wall Street financial aristocracy. In 1953 he became the CIA first civilian director.[ Rise of the National Security State The CIA's links to Wall Street, Richard Helms ] ...
...In Henry Kissinger, Rockefeller found a political operative with an international and domestic perspective similar to his. In 1954, Kissinger became director of a Council on Foreign Relations study group on nuclear weapons, of which David was a member. A relationship developed. Kissinger was invited to sit on the board of trustees of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund....
...CNN's monstrous war truth blocker, CEO Walter Isaacson, in his biography of Kissinger has Rockefeller consulting with Kissinger (not the other way around) "on Chase Bank's interests in Chile and the threat of the election of Salvador Allende in 1970, and being fully supported of his [Kissinger's]"opening of China" initiative in 1971 as it afforded banking opportunities for the Chase Bank....

Princeton University, the alma mater of financial bigwigs like Carl C. Icahn, is not typically thought of as a hotbed of anticorporate ardor.
In “Liar’s Poker,” Michael Lewis (Princeton class of 1982) described the on-campus recruiting frenzy during which undergraduates fought tooth and nail for jobs at the most prestigious Wall Street firms. The Princeton career office of the early 1980s, he wrote, “resembled a ticket booth at a Michael Jackson concert, with lines of motley students staging all-night vigils to get ahead.”
Oh, how times change. As DealBook reported last week, several Ivy League schools have seen their on-campus recruiting programs come under fire this fall, because of the influence of the Occupy movement and rising antipathy for the financial sector.
And this week, student protesters affiliated with the Occupy Princeton movement interrupted not one but two big-bank recruiting sessions at the school, typically among the biggest feeder schools for Wall Street firms.
According to the Daily Princetonian, Princeton students targeted a JPMorgan Chase session and a Goldman Sachs session this week. They “filed into the information sessions under the pretense of prospective applicants and interested students, dressed in business attire, providing their names and emails on sign-in sheets, picking up pamphlets and chatting with recruiters who approached them.”
At the JPMorgan Chase session, held on Wednesday, students used the Occupy movement’s trademark “mic check” call-and-response style to lambaste the bank. “Your predatory lending practices helped crash our economy, we’ve bailed out your executives’ bonuses, you’ve evicted struggling homeowners while taking their tax money,” the protesters said, speaking in front of an audience of interested students and bank recruiters. “In light of these actions, we protest the campus culture that whitewashes the crooked dealings of Wall Street as a prestigious career path.”Princeton University, the alma mater of financial bigwigs like Carl C. Icahn, is not... more
Washington Water Power, now known as Avista, has been in the Spokane area since the late 1800’s. It has grown a lot since then.
Are you outraged that Washington Water Power, now known as Avista, has been in the Spokane area since the late 1800’s. It has grown a lot since then.
Are you outraged that Avista, which is basically a monopoly, is allowed to pay their executives anywhere near these amounts below. Avista has no risk, run a monopoly, are protected by the state and have little concern with what the rates are doing to a lot of people in their area.
What the heck is wrong with the board of directors?
Why is Avista allowed to be a monopoly!?!?
We have people in Spokane having to make the decision of either paying the Avista bill or food and medicine.
Avista Corp. Chairman and CEO Scott Morris earned $3.25million in total compensation last year.
Executive Salary Compensation
Scott Morris (chairman, CEO) $3,245,967
Mark Thies (senior VP) $854,760
Dennis Vermillion (senior VP) $966,337
Marian Durkin (senior VP) $830,451
Karen Feltes (senior VP) $864,018
We Demand City Hall to un-do the ban on Wind Powered Generators that Avista's monopoly has created. We need freedom of choice and the power to have power!
This is not about the good hard-working people of Avista which is the majority of the working population there what I'm concerned about is how much profit did Avista make last year and how much did they give back to its community directly? this movement is about the greedy corporate CEO in the greedy piggish executives. Not about the hard-working people who are employed by this AND ALL monster monopoly's!

JP Morgan is Foreclosing on the US Treasury
I am not making this up. Hat tip reader Deontos.
Here is the high level story: JP Morgan Chase and Northwest Trust foreclosed on a property in Hillsboro, Oregon. Treasury (more accurately, the IRS) has a tax lien on the property. So this is pretty cheeky. The plaintiffs didn’t notify the IRS, who they claim was an existing junior lien holder, of the “sale”. Query what the IRS’s status is given the failure to give notice. So does JP Morgan want to own up to its error and pay the lien? Noooooo. THEY WANT TO FORECLOSE ON THE US GOVERNMENT. They are asking for the IRS to act in 30 days or go bye bye.
The compliant is silent on how the tax lien came about, but I thought as a general rule that tax liens were senior to mortgages. Reader input welcome.(the affidavit is at site)

JPMorgan Chase told a California couple to quit making mortgage payments in order to qualify for a loan modification but then foreclosed on their Sacramento home, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court.
Faiz and Khadija Jahani called Chase in December 2008 because they were having trouble making their mortgage payments. According to the suit, they were told that they wouldn't qualify for a modification without being delinquent and that they should stop making payments for three months.
At the beginning of June, the Jahanis claim that they were told they qualified for a modification that reduced their monthly payments. Three weeks later, they received a letter telling them the bank intended to foreclose. This confusing back-and-forth continued for months, with Chase repeatedly asking them to resend paperwork, according to the complaint filed in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California/Sacramento Division, which was first reported by Courthouse News.
The couple is demanding damages of $150,000 for breach of contract, fraud, predatory lending and violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

In the past decade, nearly every pillar institution in American society — whether it's General Motors, Congress, Wall Street, Major League Baseball, the Catholic Church or the mainstream media — has revealed itself to be corrupt, incompetent or both. And at the root of these failures are the people who run these institutions, the bright and industrious minds who occupy the commanding heights of our meritocratic order. In exchange for their power, status and remuneration, they are supposed to make sure everything operates smoothly. But after a cascade of scandals and catastrophes, that implicit social contract lies in ruins, replaced by mass skepticism, contempt and disillusionment.
In the wake of the implosion of nearly all sources of American authority, this new decade will have to be about reforming our institutions to reconstitute a more reliable and democratic form of authority. Scholarly research shows a firm correlation between strong institutions, accountable élites and highly functional economies; mistrust and corruption, meanwhile, feed each other in a vicious circle. If our current crisis continues, we risk a long, ugly process of de-development: higher levels of corruption and tax evasion and an increasingly fractured public sphere, in which both public consensus and reform become all but impossible.
For more than 35 years, Gallup has polled Americans about levels of trust in their institutions — Congress, banks, Big Business, public schools, etc. In 2008 nearly every single institution was at an all-time low. Banks were trusted by just 32% of the populace, down from more than 50% in 2004. Newspapers were down to 24%, from slightly below 40% at the start of the decade. And Congress was the least trusted institution of all, with only 12% of Americans expressing confidence in it. The mistrust of élites extends to élites themselves. Every year, public-relations guru Richard Edelman conducts a "trust barometer" across 22 countries, in which he surveys only highly educated, high-earning, media-attentive people. In the U.S., these people show extremely low levels of trust in government and business alike. Particularly distrusted are the superman CEOs of yore. "Chief-executive trust has just been mired in the mid- to low 20s," says Edelman. "It started off with Enron and culminates in Citi."
Such figures show that the crisis of authority extends beyond narrow ideological categories: Big Business and unions, Congress and Wall Street, organized religion and science are all viewed with skepticism. So why is it that so much of the country's leadership in so many different walks of life performed so terribly over this decade? While no single-cause theory can explain such a wide array of institutional failures, there are some themes — in particular, the concentration of power and the erosion of transparency and accountability — that extend throughout.

JPMorgan Chase & Company is coming under fire for the way it conducted an online contest to award millions of dollars to 100 charities.
At least three nonprofit groups - Students for Sensible Drug Policy, the Marijuana Policy Project and an anti-abortion group, Justice for All- say they believe that Chase disqualified them over concerns about associating its name with their missions.
The groups say that until Chase made changes to the contest, they appeared to be among the top 100 vote-getters.
"They never gave us any indication that there was any problem with our organization qualifying," said Micah Daigle, executive director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy. "Now they're completely stonewalling me."
Three days before the contest ended, Chase stopped giving participants access to voting information, and it has not made public the vote tallies of the winners.
"This is a problem of accountability," said David Lee, executive director of Justice for All. "Simply publish the votes and let us see that the 100 organizations named as winners won."
Contests using social media to award or raise money for charities have exploded, as companies and nonprofit groups test the use of Facebook, Twitter and other online tools for marketing and fund-raising.
The Chase Community Giving contest is one of the largest ever mounted, open to more than a half-million charities. More than a million people signed onto Chase's fan page, where they were awarded 20 votes to cast for the charities of their choice.
In an e-mail message to Mr. Lee, Joseph Evangelisti, a spokesman for Chase, explained the thinking behind the changes in the contest.
"Regarding the vote tallies," Mr. Evangelisti wrote, "we have taken down individual charity counts with a couple of days left to build excitement among the broadest number of participants, as well as to ensure that all Facebook users learn of the 100 finalists at the same time and so we have an opportunity to notify the 100 finalists first."
