Billionaire Banker Bandit Likely to Become Next Commerce Secretary

Billionaire Banker Bandit Likely to Become Next Commerce Secretary.

A parade of media reports this week name Penny Pritzker as Obama’s prime choice for Secretary of Commerce. No longer will criminal bankers have to lobby the administration – because now they’ll have one of their own in the Cabinet.

We never heard of this guy Barack Obama until 2004. Less than three years before taking the presidency, he was in the Illinois state senate, a swamp of scammers, backhanders, and party machine tools – not a stellar launch pad for the White House. And then, one day, state Sen. Barack Obama was visited by his fairy godmother. Her name is Penny Pritzker.

Penny’s from Heaven?

Pritzger’s net worth is listed in Forbes as $1.8 billion, which is one hell of a heavy magic wand in the world of politics. Her wand would have been heavier, and her net worth higher, except that in 2001, the federal government fined her and her family $460 million for the predatory, deceitful, racist tactics and practices of Superior, the bank-and-loan-shark operation she ran on the South Side of Chicago.

Superior was the first of the deregulated go-go banks to go bust – at the time, the costliest failure ever. US taxpayers lost nearly half a billion dollars. Superior’s depositors lost millions and poor folk in Sen. Obama’s South Side district lost their homes.

Penny did not like paying $460 million. No, not one bit. What she needed was someone to give her Hope and Change. She hoped someone would change the banking regulators so she could get away with this crap.

This article is based on the New York Times bestseller: Billionaires & Ballot Bandits, by Greg Palast with comics by Ted Rall. Available for a donation to Truthout.org.

Pritzker introduced Obama, the neophyte state senator, to the Ladies Who Lunch (that’s really what they call themselves) on Chicago’s Gold Coast. Obama got lunch, gold and better – an introduction to Robert Rubin. Rubin is a former Secretary of the Treasury, former chairman of Goldman Sachs and, when Robert met Barry, co-chairman of Citibank. Even atheists recognized Rubin as the Supreme Deity of Wall Street.

Rubin opened the doors to finance industry vaults for Obama. Extraordinarily for a Democrat, Obama in 2008 raised three times as much from bankers as his Republican opponent.

So what did Citibank’s Rubin get for showering Obama with gold? Obama agreed to take care of Rubin’s poodles, Larry Summers and Tim Geithner. They became Obama’s first cabinet picks: Summers as Economics Czar and Geithner as his czarina, Secretary of the Treasury.

Geithner and Summers were the gents who, under Treasury Secretary Rubin, designed the deregulation of banking. In effect, they had decriminalized the kind of financial flim-flammery that brought the planet to its knees while bringing Rubin, Pritzker and the banksters loads of lucre.

So, in 2008, Summers and Geithner were put back in the saddle – Obama’s horse but Rubin’s saddle.

Rubin received more than $100 million from Citigroup, the gargantuan commercial bank/investment bank/casino created by deregulation. It is worth a mention that Rubin’s centi-million-dollar payoff went unchallenged by Citi’s new owner, the US Treasury, which had put up more than a trillion dollars in loans and guarantees to pull Rubin’s creature out of bankruptcy.

Rubin rocked, but Penny was pissed off.

Pritzker had taken this state senator/community organizer from the ghetto, made him a US Senator, then, as Obama’s campaign finance chairwoman, raised a mind-blowing three-quarters of a billion dollars to make him president.

In return, in 2008, Obama decided to make his patron Penny the Secretary of Commerce. But then, in November 2008, just as Obama was about to submit her nomination to Congress, a bunch of Pritzker’s victims marched on Washington. They were not from her busted bank, but unhappy workers from the lucrative nursing homes that her family owns through a string of complex offshore trusts. Obama slammed the door on Penny pronto.

In the 2012 campaign, Obama, to his credit, kept the door shut on Pritzker, reducing her to hosting an election fundraiser at her Gold Coast digs, which she had to bill as a Goldman Sachs PAC event. This marks possibly the first time anyone has used Goldman Sachs as a PR cover.

Even tho I know this is how politics currently works I am so disappointed to read this about a President I admire.

I would like to ignore it, or discount it, but Truthout is not a source known for cheap shots, publishing unfounded or conspiracy theory based unsupported info.

The question is, will he keep playing along if there is pressure to act with integrity? Will he risk the ire of the billionaires to do what he said (and I believe firmly he meant!) that he got into office to do-which is work FOR the PEOPLE?

The only way we find out is by applying as much of that pressure as we can muster, keep praying and watch how it goes.

He did say he wanted us to watch what he does and call him on it if he does stuff that is not what he said, not what we elected him to do-and for sure helping these oligarch’s increase and maintain their power is NOT what we worked our butts off to get him elected to do!

If we had this in 2001 we would not be having this ridiculous argument of cutting social spending to pay for those two wars.


It would also push funding alternative energy research as development of alternative energy sources will be MUCH cheaper than paying for all the wars needed to maintain control and access to the world’s oil.

The manuscript of survival – part 267 Aisha North

The time has been running out for the old system, and you can already see signs of disturbance emerging. Some of them may have been expected, others come as if out of thin air. Nothing and no one can be deemed as permanent any more, and you have yet to see the full extent of this. But for now, those latest news flashing across your screens can be deemed as portents of things to come. As we have talked about earlier, sudden reversals and a need to shout out and rattle ones weapons may become apparent in more than one corner of your world, but again we remind you not to fall into the trap of going into fear. For these are the last cries of the despots, whether they rule the minds of millions of others or just a small place on this globe they call their fiefdom. Again, even if some of the happenings may seem to dominate your media, and as usual are being portrayed in the regular doom and gloom fashion, do not fall into the trap of taking it at face value. For, as we have talked about earlier, much is happening in the undercurrent at the moment, and what you see bubbling up to the surface in only a minuscule portion of that. So again, it is important to use discernment here, and watch it all in a detached fashion. For what you are seeing is indeed the last staging of the play in so many ways, and never forget, this last round before the curtain falls on the old illusion may be more than a little bizarre in so many ways.

We do not say this to scare you in any way, just to remind you that all the hue and cry that will erupt in the most unexpected of places is only designed to try to steal your focus away from the real news. And the real news, as you have all gotten more familiar with by now, are nothing but good news. For you have already started to separate yourselves so thoroughly from this charade of the third density world, and the more dust they kick up, the further back you move to get out of the fray. For you have no part in this battle for the old, as you have already stepped into tomorrow.

So let them scream and shout and wave their arms about in any way they can, but know that they cannot touch you no matter how hard they try. For you will see through all of their shenanigans, and you will see it for what it really is, just a pitiful show put together buy a threadbare group of falling empires. For no matter how powerful and evil looking they try to portray themselves, they are nothing more than little sullen children shrieking in the playground, angry because they cannot get their hands on their favorite toys any more. For they have lost you dear ones, as you are no longer anyones plaything. You have come into your own now, and as such, no one can manipulate you into stepping in line with their wishes anymore. So sit back and watch as they all start to self disintegrate. They have chewed up the very core of their giant tree with their greed a long time ago, and now, that seemingly mighty creature they have so diligently nurtured is starting to topple over. Slowly at first, but then, the fall will pick up momentum, and all you will see, are all of those greedy and angered little ants scurrying every which way trying to find a new hidey-hole. That will not be easy, as the dark has been left exposed to the light, and as such, their options will be very limited indeed. So stay in the light that you have already taken to your heart, and know that no shadow will ever obscure you again. For you have chosen from your hearts, and you have chosen well, and that choice has already been rewarded with a permanent place in the sun.

Thank you for sharing this Jueseppi! People often complain “Why do we need Black History month?” (Or Women’s history or any other thing like ethnic studies that brings focus to that which has been suppressed and ignored)


THIS is why! I bet no one reading this read about this wonderfully talented musician in school. In my generation at least, we grew up being sold a story of the world that was more holes than story. How many times did you read about what Jefferson and Washington did? Every darn year-and they were so BORING.


Why didn’t we get to learn about the beautiful, creative and amazing things and people that happened before we were born?


Well, if little girls, little non-white girls especially, grew up knowing their lives could look like *THIS* how many would fall for the sort of menial, depressing future the powers-that-were have been trying to sell them for so long?


Being told we could aspire to be a wife, or a maid, work at McDonald’s or maybe if we were really good a department store-and if we were special, smart and work super hard maybe we could become a Nurse! (Nothing wrong with being a Nurse-but it shouldn’t be the highest point a child is allowed to aim for!)


Luckily for us all in society, plenty of little girls didn’t buy the nonsense and aimed a lot higher, discovered stories like this one on their own or with the help of Moms, Dads, Aunts and Grandma’s who having lived and seen things were not so fooled.


I am so glad we have Black History month, and every other similar time to focus on what is usually not celebrated and noticed as it should be. The younger generations now do not have so much hidden from them-all we need to do is make sure the environment they grow up in provides the support and structure they need to excel and they can aim as high as they can imagine;-)

I think an active campaign to de-charter destructive corporations needs to happen immediately. Starting with Monsanto for their attempts to destroy life on Earth thru GMO seeds, and moving on to every murderous petrol extraction and pipeline building company that refuses to honor and respect the land and the people who live on it.


Corporations ONLY exist because WE ALLOW them to. They are NOT “persons” either legally or in reality despite ridiculous Supreme Court decisions to the contrary, and like all legal fictions human beings have created (anyone recall legal human slavery? We abolished that-we can abolish this too!) Human beings have the power to END them.


I am tired of protests, carrying signs, spending time and money wading thru endless court battles, reading about people dying trying to save the last of an old growth forest-and their murderers not even being CHARGED with a crime!


We are not the petitioners, we are not the children asking for a favour-we are the REAL people and these corporations are fictional beings that “live” only at our pleasure.


Are you PLEASED with them? I’m not. I think it is time to stop playing soft and timid with them and just clear the decks. No more corporations. Let’s get money out of politics AND get the legal fiction of “limited liability” corporations out of our planetary society.


Anything corporations were created to do can be done some other way-some way that is not open to such rampant abuse and manipulation by the unethical and greedy.

Here is proof that the invention of television and the use of “hot media” such as television and computers are effective methods to program populations to believe as those who control those forms of media wish them to believe.
Marshall McLuhan and Noam Chomsky have been pointing this out for years.

The big question now is of course, What are we going to DO about it?



The ” 6 degrees of separation” thing showed us just how connected we all are to one another on this planet-is it possible that we could simply TALK to one another, use tools like NVC and active listening and actually counter the effects of hot media?

I think it is-but then I’m a terminal optimist;-)

Impeccable Intention and our Capacity to Manifest -Inelia Benz

impeccablemanifestation.jpgManifestation of our “wishes” is becoming more and more instant. The choreography of Universal support to our desired outcomes is more powerful every day.

Younger children, teenagers, and young adults, seem to be able to manifest much faster than we did at their age, or, in many cases, us now.

That’s because they don’t have the same programs we were injected with, they are growing up in a higher vibrational environment, and “manifestation” is in their every day vocabulary.

Impeccability rocket fuels our manifestation capacities. But how do we achieve a state of impeccability? What does impeccability even mean?

According to Marriam-Webster (dictionary), impeccability means, “not capable of sinning or liable to sin”, and “free from fault or blame; flawless”. The origin of the word is “Latin impeccabilis, from in- + peccare to sin”.

To sin, in most languages, means “missing the target”, or a “separation from the law of God.”

Translated into non religious language, this basically means veering away from our Higher Self. Veering away from our core essence energy, which is Light/Love.

How do we know if we are being impeccable? Well, if we are thinking of something we want in our lives, but it has any lower vibrational thoughts, emotions, or physical reactions, it is the emotion that will be manifested.

Anything that doesn’t quite resonate “right” in our physical and emotional bodies, is “separate from our higher self”.

Therefore, if we want a large, beautiful, house because we want to “show them how we really are better than them,” whomever “them” are, we manifest poverty. Or we want to find our “soul mate” because we are extremely lonely and can’t stand the thought of another visit to the movie theater alone. We manifest “lonely”. Some of the loneliest people I have met are living with a significant other.

And sometimes we want to manifest things because we are taught that those are the right things to have in order to be “happy”.

Most lower vibrational “reasons” attached to our goals and wishes, are based on fear or need. And many times, the hidden reasons for us not to manifest are also fear, or need.

Sometimes we can be afraid to manifest things, especially money or healthy relationships, because we are afraid we will “abuse power”, and sometimes it is because we are afraid we will “lose it” afterward. And sometimes it is because “we are not ready to commit” to the response-ability of it. I recently experienced this last one myself!

What can we do?

  1. Make a list of three things you want to manifest very quickly. It could be something physical, part of our environment, a type of human relationship to end or start, an emotional change, anything at all.
  2. Decide on which one is the most important to you.
  3. Ask yourself if this is “your own” desire. If you get a “no”, ask your body if it is “her/his desire”. (If you are having difficulty communicating with your body, do the “Reconnecting with the Physical Body Exercise” in your Ascension101 Course for the next 21 days.)
  4. Ask yourself “why” you/your body wants it. Take a look at the answer, is it fear based? Is it “need” based? Process it.
  5. Ask yourself “why” you/your body wants it, again, and see what the core energy is of that response. If it is a lower vibration, process it. And repeat until there are no more answers.
  6. Once there are no more answers, the final answer is usually, “because I want to be happy”.
  7. Manifest a state of joy in your physical, mental and emotional bodies right now. Gratitude for something wonderful in your life is a great way to go into a state of joy.
  8. Once you are in complete joy, you are free. Once you are free, you can revisit the thing you want to manifest and see if you “need it” now, or not.
  9. Once you no longer “need it”, or have any negative vibrations attached to it, you are home free.

Basically what we are doing here is removing the manifestation item from our lower vibration (separation from Source), and putting it squarely inside Source (love/light).

We manifest with our physical, emotional and mental bodies. If they are in “need”, “fear”, “anger”, or any other type of energy that is not joy, light, love, they will manifest the emotions and situations we “believe” are possible.

We create the fifth dimension, we create the physical world, we create what happens in our lives. We have been doing so since we were born, but unconsciously. We do it based social rules, and programs such as fears, needs, and the illusion of lack. What we accomplish with the exercises above, is that we start creating our world consciously. That is the only difference! We become aware of the process, and we consciously manifest.

The higher our vibration, and the more in touch we are with our body, emotions and mind, the faster we can manifest a fantastic reality, not just for ourselves, but for the entire human collective.

New Moon Phase – Moon in Pisces

Internet problems and various other annoying issues had me offline for a couple of days so I will summarize what’s going on:

The New Moon energy had conjunctions of Neptune, Mars, Chiron, Mercury, and the Moon – all in Pisces (water) – and squaring Jupiter (which expands everything to the greatest possible degree. It’s a deluge of emotions (water). It brings an insanity of wreckless abandonment, bursts of simmering rage, instinctual impulses to escape and escape fast, pain, and something akin to the Furies. This would have been the warning about the New Moon energy that fell in line Saturday and Sunday.

We are still under these effects and we need to slow things down. There is a tendency to drive very fast and not even know it. But the main thing is dealing with our emotions, not denying or escaping them. Even the most even-keeled, emotionally grounded individuals might be challenged by the intensity of emotions. Wrtiing can help things flow much better. Any type of creative art that is employed to channel emotions will have “magical” properties (power). With all of this you have to think like a Pisces. If you are finding this not much fun, you understand what it is like to be a Pisces. It’s complicated. But the power to express/create beauty – in all its forms – and attune to Spirit is unrivalled. Pisces energy is handled best when it is spiritually connected but also creating something from it (even a thought).

Note: Discussion of the Mahavidyas will flip over to the Mahavidya Project website at www.mahavidyaproject.com where I will post material over the next few days.

The manuscript of survival – part 266 by Aisha North

The manuscript of survival part 266

by Aisha North

As you have mayhaps already ascertained, the intensity has once more been turned up a notch. In other words, more information and more light is coming your way, and as this as always is being directed through your physical body, some symptoms may occur. We know that you are not novices in this, and as such, the outfall from all of this energetic uprising will not come as a surprise to any of you. However, this time there might be a few rather interesting symptoms coming up. We do not speak of the usual ones, the ones that your body seems to exhibit on a regular basis when it is immersed in such a stream of energy and light as the one you are currently in. No, we speak of other, more esoteric ones to call them that.

You see, your mind and your body will start to act as if they are somewhat out of synch in the days ahead, and we thought it best to forewarn you of this lest you should think that you are actually losing your grip on your sanity. That is not what is happening, rather, what is happening is that the old insanity of third density existence is starting to lose its hold on you, and therefore you will at times feel as if you and your body have become separated in some ways. This may sound strange, but we think you will all notice when it starts to happen.

So again we tell you that all is well, and even if you at times will feel that you are totally disconnected from the material world, you are not about to just drift out into the ethers. This is again one of those adjustment periods, where you are slowly being put through the transition from living in the third density world in a third density body and into the next level. You see, as it is with everything in this process, it cannot be accomplished in one fell swoop. That would not only knock you off your feet, but it would literally render you unable to cope in any way. Therefore, we will guide you all through it, and this time, the process will involve a feeling of detachment from your physical body.

Just remember, the reason you are all here in the first place is to accomplish this transition whilst still residing within said body, so you are not about to float off into space unhindered by that at times rather burdersome accomplice. For you are a team, and the spirit and soul that is the real you have been teamed up with this current body in order for you to be able to fulfill this journey together. We know that at times the trappings of being in a physical body will feel to be a burden and certainly impose some unwanted limitations to your quest, but that is now about to change. For now, you will all be led on those first and perhaps rather faltering steps on this journey towards being able to exist both within these confines while simultaneously expanding your consciousness outside it. In other words, you will be able to lead a very interesting double life in the not too distant future, and you will do so whilst seemingly appearing as just another ordinary citizen on the outside. But your life will be filled with wonders indeed, and with it, some extra challenges. For starting to live a life that encompasses so much more than what you have been able to experience first hand up until now, will not go off seamlessly at first. Hence, this gradual awakening to the fact that you can actually master such a way of life. After all, it is not by learning you will know this, it is by remembering, and as such this journey will ignite many a lost memory within you all.

So let us just repeat that you are not going mad, even if you at times will feel a strong sense of bewilderment and separation in the time ahead. You are in fact just rediscovering your freedom. So take it slow, and remember to check in with your center, and as always, breathe. For your conscious breath is what connects you to this amazing vehicle that you inhabit, and the two of you are not about to lose contact anytime soon, no matter how distant and befuddled you might feel in the time ahead.
