Community Foundation of the Lowcountry Named 2017 Winner of HUD Secretary's Award

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Council on Foundations (COF) today announced that Community Foundation of the Lowcountry is one of 10 winners of the 2017 HUD Secretary’s Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships.

The award was presented to Denise Spencer, president and CEO of the Community Foundation, at the Council on Foundations Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas, earlier this morning. It honors innovative and impactful cross-sector initiatives that have increased the quality of life for low- and moderate-income Americans living in urban, suburban, and rural communities. The Community Foundation received the award for its Project SAFE (Sewer Access For Everyone) initiative, a partnership between Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, the Town of Hilton Head Island and the Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) utility. Project SAFE’S objective is to connect low-income households to public sewer, eliminating septic systems that can create public health issues for residents and visitors and wreak havoc on the region’s fragile ecosystem.

“The Community Foundation’s mission is to improve and strengthen our communities,” said Community Foundation president and CEO Denise Spencer. “And we believe Project SAFE is a critical component in making our community a better place. Project SAFE does not just improve the lives of the families directly impacted by connecting to the public sewer system. It affects all of us – residents and visitors – who understand the importance of keeping our waterways free from waste produced by failing septic systems, who understand the public health threat created by septic systems made inefficient by our high water table and dense tree root systems, and who believe that everyone on our island should have access to something as basic as a connection to the public sewer system.”

Project SAFE already has helped scores of families connect to the public sewer system and is preparing to provide even more assistance as the Town and PSD carry out the installation of sewer mains on 60 different streets as part of a five-year Master Sewer Plan initiative. The Town is preparing to fund approximately $10 million in sewer projects, while the PSD is building two regional sewer lift stations needed for the mains at a cost of approximately $1 million.
The first projects of the Town-funded Master Sewer Plan are kicking off this spring, bringing sewer service to more than 200 properties.

"Without a doubt, Project SAFE will fundamentally impact and improve the health and lives of all Hilton Head Islanders, most especially those who have directly endured the daily effects of failing septic systems,” according to Hilton Head Island Mayor David Bennett. “Project SAFE is the philanthropic and financial key for those households that otherwise lack the necessary resources to connect to newly installed sewer lines. This extraordinary effort is tangible evidence of the true heart and commitment to community of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry."

“Project SAFE and the Community Foundation are essential to this effort,” said PSD general manager Pete Nardi. “After we install the sewer mains in the streets, Project SAFE steps in to help make sure qualified, low-income customers get connected. It’s a crucial partnership aimed at improving the long-term quality of life for all islanders. The Community Foundation’s success with Project SAFE shows the tremendous community spirit and support for public health and environmental protection on Hilton Head Island.”

HUD Secretary Ben Carson stresses the importance of these kinds of partnerships. “I want to congratulate each of our winners for their extraordinary efforts to bridge the gap between philanthropy, government, and nonprofits,” he said. “Today’s awards celebrate the power of partnership, and honor exceptional organizations that are laying a strong foundation for more Americans to succeed and to thrive.”

“The 10 initiatives being honored are an inspiring reminder that when philanthropy and government work together and lead together in cross-sector partnerships, their collaborations can achieve incredible results for the communities we collectively serve,” said Council President and CEO Vikki Spruill. “On behalf of the Council, I congratulate each of the outstanding foundations being awarded today.”

Other award winners were:
The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation of Tulsa, OK: Alleviating and Preventing Homelessness/Building Tulsa, Building Lives

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation of King and Pierce Counties, WA: Public Housing Authority-School District Partnerships Initiative

Capital One Foundation of New York, NY: Y-PLAN (Youth – Plan, Learn, Act, Now)

The JP Morgan Chase Foundation of Ohio, Florida, Colorado, California: PRO Neighborhoods: ReFresh Initiative

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation of New Hampshire: Collective Action, Collective Impact

Nusenda Foundation of Albuquerque, NM: Albuquerque Living Cities Integration Initiative

The Skillman Foundation of Detroit, MI: Grow Detroit’s Young Talent (GDYT)

HUD’s Office for International and Philanthropic Innovation and the COF have co-hosted the Secretary’s Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships since 2012. The winners were selected by a panel of 12 judges — six from HUD and six from the Council on Foundations — based on materials submitted following an open call for nominations issued this past February.

22 hours ago - Via Google+ - View - Cathy Bilsky : CUTTING CORPORATIONS, ILLUMINATI AND SECRET SOCIETIES FROM THEIR SYMBOLS by Cathy Bilsky March 10, 2012...
March 10, 2012 at 7:17pm

Symbols have meanings. These dark entities are taking all our rights away. It’s time to give them a big energy hit where it hurts them the most…..their bank accounts and power structures. Lets take back the symbols for good .

Logos are used not only for control and for sucking energies, but they are also used as a kind of protection for these guys to hide behind...

May the energies they use to protect their dark magick through these sigils( past present future) - now be reversed.. After they have been reversed back to their positive energy directions we now cut these symbols free from all past present and future misuse also the elements they are controlling with these sigils are now freed...


You can do this every time you are out on errands..Driving anywhere.

Here are some corporate symbols that will pour money back on to the people

The octagon, a symbol of control, is seen at the white house and in the capitol. It is also a symbol for chase/jp morgan bank..It flows clockwise in their is like a portal, sucking money in and controlling the people..Let’s all imagine the octagon's opening up and pouring money out to the people...or imagine it going counter clockwise to short circuit things....

Every time you see chase/jp morgan, the white house just imagine the octagon reversing and giving money and social programs back to the 99%.

Verizon - the word with the z - as a sideways lightning bolt is their sigil..i imagine the z going either like a backwards z or a 2 or a vertical lightning bolt..Taking the money that's being stolen from the people and returning it so we have free communications

At&t - their sigil is the globe..i imagine it's spinning in the opposite direction and

spinning money back to the people they've robbed

Anything with a pyramid or a triangle..Lets all imagine it upside down so the people at the base are empowered and the few at the top lose their control over the the money pours out on to mother earth and her inhabitants..

Anything with a sun (also a big portal) - i.e. bp British Petroleum, Lets all imagine that the sun now shines on mother earth..that it's no longer a portal to suck in power and money toward the corporations, but a giant portal of love that shines kindly on the people and no longer sucks in energy….instead

pouring money and power back to the 99%,into social health and clean up the earth programs.

Anything with a magnet, Lets all imagine it's reversing.If the magnet faces east, we will point it west..So that the company is no longer sucking energy from the people and mother earth and it's powers are shut down..

Anything with the eye of Horus - often the eye of Horus is used and it spins the energies sucks the energy in..So lets all imagine the eye spinning their energies out..returning the money from the cable companies to the people...

Many corporate logos are portals - always picture the portals reversing themselves - so that the money and energy pours will find once you start paying attention to corporate logos that they are easy to flip to the light..And

they are good focal points for magicians to return the power to the people and to mother earth...

These guys work with sacred geometry and they twist it...for lets all flip them so the power goes to all people..It’s like Marshall arts..

Nazi swastika.. The regular swastika is a symbol of goodness in India. However, when it is reversed it will bring chaos onto the planet… Lets all imagine when anyone looks at the Nazi swastika it automatically reverses and brings peace and prosperity back to the people and the planet...

The wings of Isis are a symbol of healing...yet they use it as a symbol for lets take that sigil and we can all imagine that every time someone sees the wings of Isis they are healed and think about healing mother earth...and with the Chrysler, Lets all imagine that the wings of Isis no longer protect the oil companies seeing all their money they going back into the healing mother earth..

We now call on Isis for this.

Here's a blog entry on the occult meanings of a few corporate sigils.

OH OH lets not forget the HAARP logo…..

and face book.

Recently i saw the correlation between the face book sigil and HAARP.which is in the shape of a kite or a shield...may this shield come down - so the people are awakened and uplifted every time they see this symbol.

We have also have noticed that the face book sigil has 13 heads stuck in the ground -...may those bodies rise up and be empowered every time someone sees that sigil.

Many symbols are good i.e. the sun...we don't want to piss off the

The rising sun, for instance, is also the symbol for shell oil.

It is a hermetic symbol and good sacred secret societies use it for good.... For the rest of those who misuse this symbol may the energy lines that control them be cut by the help of archangel Michael and violet flamed so all humanity may awaken conscious spiritual beings.

A few more symbols to be aware of and reverse:

the flower of life that protects standford university

the 322 of skull and bones

the nazi swatstika

the jp morgan/chase octagon

any stars turned on their heads are now turned upright so our crown chakras face the creator again

any pyramids are turned upside down so that the people and mother earth and her inhabitants, those who have been controlled are on top now and are freed

any hexagons (i.e. stars of david) used to entrap the elements are now reversed so the elements are free (i.e. mother earth, our bodies, all creatures bodies)

any suns, vortices, portals (including the flower of life) now are reversed and resonate and are in tune with the creator

citigroup's symbol of the temple or star gate is set free - our bodies and the earth are temples that belong to us and the creator

any upside down crosses or staffs (citigroup again church of rome) are turned upright and the people are awakened.

pentagons - as in the chrysler symbol with a star encased in a pentagon... picture that opening up too...anything encased in an octagon or pentagon - open it up and let the power flow out.

also pentagrams or stars that are inverted - picture them rightside up and pointing toward the creator...

Pentagrams .it is a sacred symbol for the 4 elements plus spirit, but they use it to control the elements...anytime a star is encased, it is like controlling the elements and spirit...Lets all imagine the star free again and working with the creator..

This will give us court advantage if you start making this part of your daily practice. Anytime you see these symbols your first reaction should be is to cut, reverse and see them loose the power. Seeing that power being returned to the 99% along with cleaning up and healing the earth…..and all life forms.

Make a copy of this and put one in your car and wallet/purse just for reference.

The power of the forces are with us….all of them.

Any questions just ask

Supreme Court Of The U.S. Ruled JP Morgan Chase To Stand Trial For Violating Antitrust Laws & For Rigging The Comex Silver Market - 21 APR 2017 BY VOLUBRJOTR

The U.S. Supreme Court allowed private antitrust lawsuits brought by investors including big U.S. cities accusing major banks of conspiring to manipulate the pivotal Libor benchmark interest rate to move forward.

The justices rejected an appeal filed by a group of banks including Bank of America Corp(BAC.N), Deutsche Bank AG(DBKGn.DE), UBS AG(UBSG.S) and JPMorgan Chase & Co(JPM.N) of a May 2016 ruling by the New York-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that allowed various lawsuits against them to proceed.

The appeals court reversed a lower court judge’s dismissal of investors’ antitrust claims against the banks.

The private litigation is separate from Libor rigging probes that have resulted in roughly $9 billion of sanctions worldwide, including $2.5 billion against Deutsche Bank in April 2015.

Several bank affiliates have pleaded guilty to criminal charges, and more than 20 people have been criminally charged.

Alleged illegal activity including the execution of rapid trades just before the rate was set each day, called “banging the close,” causing the British brokerage ICAP Plc (IAP.L) to delay trades until they moved ISDAfix where they wanted, and posting rates that did not reflect market activity.

Settled is a private U.S. lawsuit accusing them of rigging an interest rate benchmark used in the $553 trillion derivatives market.

Under the settlement, payments would include $52 million from JPMorgan; $50 million each from Bank of America, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and RBS; $42 million from Citigroup and $30 million from Barclays.

Alaska Electrical Pension Fund et al v. Bank of America Corp et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 14-07126.

The settlement made public on May 3, which requires court approval, resolves antitrust claims against Bank of America Corp (BAC.N), Barclays Plc (BARC.L), Citigroup Inc (C.N), Credit Suisse Group AG (CSGN.S), Deutsche Bank AG (DBKGn.DE), JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) and Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc (RBS.L).

The settlements were disclosed in letters filed in Manhattan federal court by lawyers representing investors and traders who accused Deutsche Bank of violating U.S. antitrust law.

Terms were not disclosed, but both settlements will include monetary payments by the German bank.

Deutsche Bank also agreed to help the plaintiffs pursue claims against other defendants.

The plaintiffs accused Deutsche Bank of conspiring with Bank of Nova Scotia, Barclays Plc, HSBC Holdings Plc and Societe Generale to manipulate prices of gold, gold futures and options, and gold derivatives through twice-a-day meetings to set the so-called London Gold Fixing.

They also accused Deutsche Bank, HSBC and ScotiaBank of a similar conspiracy to manipulate silver prices by rigging the daily Silver Fix.

“It is categorically false that pressure from regulators [known as BaFin,] was a factor in the decision of the co-C.E.O.s to step down early,” Michael Golden, the spokesman, said in an email.

He pointed out that Mr. Jain would not receive about 15 million euros in pay he would have been entitled to if he had been fired.

Mr. Jain will leave at the end of June while Mr. Fitschen will remain another year.

Sunday 7 June 2015 14.36 EDT Anshu Jain will leave Deutsche Bank at the end of this month, with Jürgen Fitschen staying on until the bank’s annual meeting in 2016.

The surprise move of the joint chief executives of Deutsche Bank came just over a month after Deutsche was fined a record $2.5bn (£1.7bn) for rigging Libor, ordered to fire seven employees and was accused of being obstructive towards regulators in their investigations into the global manipulation of the benchmark rate.

John Cryan, the British former chief financial officer of UBS, will replace Jain as co-chief executive.

When Fitschen departs he will not be replaced, leaving the 54-year-old Briton in sole charge.

[June 5 Deutsche Bank AG and its role in Ruble flight]

Transactions involving stocks bought by Russian clients in rubles through Deutsche Bank, and simultaneous trades through London in which the bank bought the same securities for similar amounts in U.S. dollars allowed Russian clients to move funds out of Russia “without properly alerting the authorities,” Deutsche Bank AG ithinks this may have involved about $6 billion over more than four years.

The Bank of Russia approached Deutsche Bank in October asking the firm to examine the stock-trading activities of some clients in the country, said one person, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.

The German lender is analyzing data from 2011 through early 2015, and has alerted Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority, the European Central Bank and Germany’s Bafin of the investigation.

Since 2006, Russian individuals have sent nearly $200 billion out of the country—or more than 10 percent of the country’s gross domestic product for 2013.

And the flow of cash accelerated, up from $5.9 billion in the first quarter of 2013 to $13.4 billion in the third quarter of 2014.

[April 23 Germany’s largest lender by assets will book a profit and “near record revenues” for the first quarter, despite LIBOR fine]

Deutsche Bank AG’s alleged involvement in rigging of foreign-exchange markets, is likely to involve an even higher fine than the Libor investigations. Deutsche Bank is also being probed for alleged violations of U.S. sanctions on countries such as Iran and over high-frequency trading.

Deutsche Bank will agree to plead guilty to manipulation and acknowledge that its internal monitoring systems were insufficient to prevent the manipulation of Libor. Deutsche Bank is nearing a settlement fine of more than $2.15 billion with British and American regulatory authorities.

The bank is subject to 180 regulatory investigations and faces 1,000 lawsuits with a claim value of more than €100,000 each, Deutsche Bank has paid more than €5 billion over the past two years for settlements and fines stemming mostly from the financial crisis.

Justice Department is conducting a criminal investigation into foreign exchange trading by JPMorgan Chase & Co.

JPMorgan’s filing came on the same day that HSBC set aside $1.6 billion for legal costs, some of which is earmarked for an ongoing investigation into that bank’s foreign exchange trading business by U.K. regulators.

JPM might need as much as $5.9 billion to cover losses beyond reserves for legal matters, up $1.3 billion from the end of June, and the most since since mid-2013.

In October, Citigroup — another bank in settlement talks with regulators — slashed its previously-reported third-quarter profits in order to factor in an additional $600 million in legal costs.

Large banks, especially in Europe, have taken billions of dollars worth of hits to their profits in the third quarter to deal with expected legal costs stemming from investigations into foreign exchange manipulation.

RBS set aside $640 million, Deutsche Bank has had a $1.1 billion legal charge, and Barclays has had a $800 million charge.

Credit Default Swaps Investigations and Litigation. In July 2013, the European Commission (the “EC”) filed a Statement of Objections against the Firm (including various subsidiaries) and other industry members in connection with its ongoing investigation into the credit default swaps (“CDS”) marketplace.

The EC asserts that between 2006 and 2009, a number of investment banks acted collectively through the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (“ISDA”) and Markit Group Limited (“Markit”) to foreclose exchanges from the potential market for exchange-traded credit derivatives.

The Firm submitted a response to the Statement of Objections in January 2014, and the EC held a hearing in May 2014.

The U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) also has an ongoing investigation into the CDS marketplace, which was initiated in July 2009.

Separately, the Firm and other industry members are defendants in a consolidated purported class action filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers and sellers of CDS.

The complaint refers to the ongoing investigations by the EC and DOJ into the CDS market, and alleges that the defendant investment banks and dealers, including the Firm, as well as Markit and/or ISDA, collectively prevented new entrants into the market for exchange-traded CDS products.

Defendants moved to dismiss this action, and in September 2014, the Court granted defendants’ motion in part, dismissing claims for damages based on transactions effected before the Autumn of 2008, as well as certain other claims

Foreign Exchange Investigations and Litigation.

DOJ is conducting a criminal investigation, and various regulatory and civil enforcement authorities, including U.S. banking regulators, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”) and other foreign government authorities, are conducting civil investigations, regarding the Firm’s foreign exchange (“FX”) trading business.

These investigations are focused on the Firm’s spot FX trading activities as well as controls applicable to those activities.

The Firm continues to cooperate with these investigations and is currently engaged in discussions with DOJ, and various regulatory and civil enforcement authorities, about resolving their respective investigations with respect to the Firm. There is no assurance that such discussions will result in settlements.

In 2013, JPMorgan paid over $20 billion in settlements, fines, and compensation to settle investigations into mortgage securities trading, its massive “London Whale” derivatives loss, and its relationship with Bernie Madoff

JPMorgan’s lawyers accepted the $1.7 billion penalty, stemming from two felony violations of the Bank Secrecy Act for turning a blind eye to the Ponzi scheme run by Bernard L. Madoff.

The bank also agreed to pay $350 million to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, accepting the agency’s only offer.

U.S. prosecutors are pressing to bring charges against a bank for currency-rate rigging by the end of the year, and actions against individuals will probably follow in 2015, according to people familiar with the probe are looking into allegations that traders shared data about orders with people at other firms using instant-message groups with names such as `€œThe Cartel`€ and `The Bandits Club.`

One focus is whether dealers sought to move the WM/Reuters benchmark rate in their favor by pushing through trades before and during the 60-second windows when the benchmark is set at 4 p.m. in London each day, a process known in the industry as “banging the close.

The U.S. Justice Department is investigating the manipulation of foreign exchange rates, a top federal prosecutor said on October 29, in the first public acknowledgement of such a probe in the United States.

Criminal and antitrust authorities have an “active, ongoing investigation” into the possible manipulation, Mythili Raman, the acting head of the department’s criminal division, said.

[October 7]

Swiss authorities said they were investigating whether financial institutions had colluded to manipulate foreign exchange markets.

Traders could potentially influence exchange rates by pushing through large orders exactly at the right time.

If those suspicions are proved correct, it could result in yet another embarrassing reputational scandal, not just for individual banks but also for the integrity of the global financial sector.

The $4.7-trillion-a-day (CHF4.2 trillion) currency market, the biggest in the financial system, is also one of the least regulated, according to experts.

Even the smallest movement in exchange rates could affect the value of investments made by institutional investors, including pension funds.

Finma, said it was investigating several Swiss banks but did not name them.

The agency also said it was cooperating with authorities in other countries and that banks outside the country were also suspected.

UBS is fourth among global banks in currency trading, according to Euromoney. Credit Suisse is a relatively minor player, with 3.7 percent of the currency market vs. 10.1 percent for U.B.S.

[August 28]

In the space of 20 minutes on the last Friday in June, the value of the U.S. dollar jumped 0.57 percent against its Canadian counterpart, the biggest move in a month. Within an hour, two-thirds of that gain had melted away.

The same pattern — a sudden surge minutes before 4 p.m. in London on the last trading day of the month, followed by a quick reversal — occurred 31 percent of the time across 14 currency pairs over two years. For the most frequently traded pairs, such as euro-dollar, it happened about half the time, the data show.

The recurring spikes take place at the same time financial benchmarks known as the WM/Reuters rates are set based on those trades.

Fund managers and scholars say the patterns look like an attempt by currency dealers to manipulate the rates, distorting the value of trillions of dollars of investments in funds that track global indexes.

The recurring spikes take place at the same time financial benchmarks known as the WM/Reuters (TRI) rates are set based on those trades.

Now fund managers and scholars say the patterns look like an attempt by currency dealers to manipulate the rates, distorting the value of trillions of dollars of investments in funds that track global indexes.

In June that dealers shared information and used client orders to move the rates to boost trading profit.

The U.K. Financial Conduct Authority is reviewing the allegations, a spokesman said.

“We see enormous spikes,” said Michael DuCharme, head of foreign exchange at Seattle-based Russell Investments, which traded $420 billion of foreign currency last year for its own funds and institutional investors.

“Then, shortly after 4 p.m., it just reverts back to what seems to have been the market rate. It adds to the suspicion that things aren’t right.”

Authorities around the world are investigating the abuse of financial benchmarks by large banks that play a central role in setting them.

Former Barclays CEO Robert Diamond gave evidence to the Treasury Select Committee in London on July 10, 2012.

Diamond stepped down from his position after regulators fined the bank 290 million pounds for attempting to rig the benchmark interest rate.

Barclays Plc (BARC), Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and UBS AG (UBSN) were fined a combined $2.5 billion for rigging the London interbank offered rate, or Libor, used to price $300 trillion of securities from student loans to mortgages.

More than a dozen banks have been subpoenaed by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission over allegations traders worked with brokers at ICAP Plc (IAP) to manipulate ISDAfix, a benchmark used in interest-rate derivatives.

ICAP Chief Executive Officer Michael Spencer said in May that an internal probe found no evidence of wrongdoing.

Dralers at banks, which dominate the $4.7 trillion-a-day currency market, may be executing a large number of trades over a short period to move the rate to their advantage, a practice known as banging the close.

Because the 4 p.m. benchmark determines how much profit dealers make on the positions they’ve taken in the preceding hour, there’s an incentive to influence the rate, DuCharme said.

Dealers say they have to trade during the window to meet client demand and minimize their own risk.

[April 2013]

The Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) recommended April 25 in its latest annual report to Congress that policymakers “promptly” identify other interest rate benchmarks that could replace the London Interbank Offered Rate, which the council said was “unsustainable in the long run.”

The lending gauge, known as Libor, comprises a set of rates used to price financial instruments worldwide and is based on self-reported borrowing costs for unsecured loans between banks.

The regulators’ call to move from a regime in which banks self-report their borrowing costs to one anchored in actual, observable transactions would shake up the current underpinnings of the financial system.

The recommendation is the first of its kind for FSOC, a collection of regulators ranging from the Federal Reserve to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that was formed after the financial crisis to spot risks.

People need to know.

I've been in the Call Center Industry for almost a decade that dealing with different people has been my forte. I know the difference between a feedback, bullying and harassment.

I was an honor student, full scholar, a rotaractor, top agent, an events team present even when its my off, a CSAT Enthusiast, a Scorecard conscious and I got promoted for doing a job well done

When I became a Company Wide Witness at JP Morgan Chase Bank Philippines, all hell broke loose.

Nov 2012 I submitted an evidence,& 10 teams of my division started harassing me, abusing me emotionally & psychologically.

-1st Qtr 2013 I sent an email complaint to Wax Pangan.
-1st Qtr 2013 I asked GP Orzal for help & he calls my concerns "Psychological".
-1st Qtr 2013 Katherine H Tan asked me to sign my suspension & asked me "Who else knows you are a witness" And then I kept my mouth shut.
-1st Qtr 2013 I started hurting myself & ranting on facebook.
-1st Qtr 2014 I got demoted since I had increased lates and absences, Failed performances.
-Sep 2014 I got diagnosed & Feb 2015 I resigned.

A year later, I took another job and walked out from it.

How do you cope with being a sacrificial lamb? My next Post will reveal that.

In the United States, five banks control half the economy: JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs Group collectively held $8.5 trillion in assets at the end of 2011, which equals roughly 56% of the U.S. economy. This data was according to central bankers at the Federal Reserve. In 2007, the assets of the largest banks amounted to 43% of the U.S. economy. Thus, the crisis has made the banks bigger and more powerful than ever. Because the government invoked “too big to fail,” meaning that the big banks will be saved because they are very important, the big banks have incentive to make continued and bigger risks, because they will be bailed out in the end. Essentially, it’s an insurance policy for criminal risk-taking behaviour. The former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis stated, “Market participants believe that nothing has changed, that too-big-to-fail is fully intact.” Remember, “market” means the banking cartel (or “super-entity” if you prefer). Thus, they build new bubbles and buy government bonds (sovereign debt), making the global financial system increasingly insecure and at risk of a larger collapse than took place in 2008.[4]

The top 50 companies on the list of the “super-entity” included (as of 2007): Barclays Plc (1), Capital Group Companies Inc (2), FMR Corporation (3), AXA (4), State Street Corporation (5), JP Morgan Chase & Co. (6), UBS AG (9), Merrill Lynch & Co Inc (10), Deutsche Bank (12), Credit Suisse Group (14), Bank of New York Mellon Corp (16), Goldman Sachs Group (18), Morgan Stanley (21), Société Générale (24), Bank of America Corporation (25), Lloyds TSB Group (26), Lehman Brothers Holdings (34), Sun Life Financial (35), ING Groep (41), BNP Paribas (46), and several others.

"Portland’s City Council had originally considered adding Caterpillar , Wells Fargo , JP Morgan Chase and six other companies identified by a volunteer committee on socially responsible investing to a so-called “Do Not Buy” list, but the council was unable to come to an agreement on which companies to blacklist from the city’s investment portfolio. Instead, in December, they voted to place a temporary halt on all new corporate investments until permanent decisions could be made.

After activists organized rallies and packed council meetings with hours of testimony, the council agreed last week to end corporate investments altogether."

DAPL Planning and Action Timeline:

2/17/15: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) sends a letter to the Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO) initiating permitting process. The USACE in accordance with National Historic Preservation Act (Sec.106) is required to consult with interested tribes on the pipeline’s potential impacts. THPO requests a full archaeological investigation, and after not hearing back on specific concerns sends follow-up letters Feb. 25 and again Apr. 8.

9/15/15: A second form letter from the USACE arrives Sept. 15 asking if the Chairman would like to consult on the project. The THPO responds again, highlighting concerns about “significant and unevaluated properties” on the site, and its exclusion from the National Historic Preservation Act evaluation process. THPO concludes that “it has become clear that the Corps is attempting to circumvent the Section 106 process.”

Dec. 2015: USACE publishes environmental assessment (EA) saying that “the Standing Rock THPO had indicated to DAPL that the Lake Oahu site avoided impacts to tribally significant sites.” The U.S. Department of Interior, American Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) and Environmental Protection Agency send critical letters to the Corps about their assessment. Concerns are now being voiced by other tribes whose ancestral lands are planned to be crossed by the pipeline, including the Osage Nation and Iowa Tribe THPO, who wrote to ACHP: “We have not been consulted in an appropriate manner about the presence of traditional cultural properties, sites, or landscapes vital to our identity and spiritual well-being.”

4/22/16: The Corps concludes their investigation, finding that no historic properties are affected. This decision is made despite major concerns about the Section 106 evaluation process and stated worries from ACHP.

5/16/16: Construction begins on all three sections of the 346-mile, $1.4 billion ND segment.

Mid-July 2016: Rezpect Our Water petition started by Standing Rock youth, send out a 500-mile run to D.C to deliver a petition signed by more than 160,000 calling for the stopping of the DAPL.

7/25/16: Corps issues final fast-track permit to continue construction. Even though it’s slated to pass underneath the Missouri River, half a mile upstream of the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, the final environmental assessment concludes there will be “no direct or indirect impacts.”

8/4/16: An injunction is filed by the Standing Rock Sioux, represented by Earthjustice, suing the USACE and asking the court to get the Corps to withdraw the fast-track permit.

8/10/16: Construction under the Missouri River begins and ten water protectors are arrested the following day for blocking the entrance to the site where pipeline workers were unloading heavy equipment. Within a week the number of water protectors increases to more than 2,500. Highways leading to the site are shut down.

8/15/16: Chairman Archambault II issues worldwide appeal, “To all Native American Tribes in the US and to all Indigenous Peoples of the world, please stand with Standing Rock by issuing proclamations, resolutions, and/or letters of support.”

Water protector numbers continue to rise, resulting in the division director of homeland security to order the removal of state-owned water tanks and trailers that were providing water protector camps with drinking water. Pipeline officials claim the project is already 48 percent complete.

8/24/16: Hundreds of protesters gather in D.C waiting for the decision in the case that is delayed to September 9.

8/30/16: Navajo Nation President supports water protectors by traveled to Standing Rock.

9/2/16: UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues sides with Standing Rock, says pipeline’s route was mapped out without adequate consultation.

9/3/16: A sacred Standing Rock Sioux tribal burial site is plowed through by Dakota Access bulldozers, the permits for that land were contested in the Standing Rock lawsuit. Videos surface showing private security attacking water protectors with dogs and mace. At least 30 people were pepper-sprayed and a child and five others were bitten by dogs.

9/6/16: A temporary halt for a portion of the pipeline is issued by US District Judge James Boasberg, but it’s too late to save the burial ground. At this point there are more than 100 tribes represented, and the protest is considered to be one of the largest Native American protests in United States history.

9/7/16: An arrest warrant is issued for presidential candidate Jill Stein after she spray-paints a bulldozer.

9/8/16: The North Dakota National Guard is called in by Governor Jack Dalrymple to increase enforcement at the protest site.

9/9/16: Construction is allowed to continue as the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s injunction request is denied by District Judge James Boasberg. The Department of Justice, Department of the Army and Department of the Interior issue a joint statement refusing to authorize construction in the Lake Oahe area near the water protectors, and they ask Energy Transfer Partners to voluntarily stop construction within 20 miles east and west of Lake Oahe until it can be determined that the construction violates the National Environmental Policy Act. (note: DAPL can continue construction on the remainder of DAPL, which it must do to meet its Jan. 2017 completion deadline and honor supply contracts. The total route extends over 1172 miles.)

9/10/16: An arrest warrant is issued for renowned Democracy Now journalist Amy Goodman, who has been filming brutal actions by security guards against water protectors.

10/6/16: There are more than 2,000 water protectors at this point. Construction is halted at multiple sites, the Morton County sheriff says he assigned more resources to the area and will call in deputies from other states to respond to water protectors. (Since protests began, Morton County received assistance from 268 officers from 24 different counties and cities in ND.)

10/10/16: Twenty-seven people including actress Shailene Woodley were arrested at Standing Rock for “trespassing.” The Justice Department, the Army and the Interior Department issued a second joint statement, “The Army will not authorize constructing the Dakota Access Pipeline on Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe. We repeat our request that the pipeline company voluntarily pause all construction activity within 20 miles east or west of Lake Oahe.” Documentary filmmaker Deia Schlosberg arrested while filming demonstrators who shut down tar sands pipelines in Wallhala. Charged with three felonies, all conspiracy charges that carry a sentence of up to 45 years in prison.

10/11/16: A federal appeals court denied Standing Rock’s request for an injunction to block construction. The ruling allows for construction to continue near the Standing Rock reservation. Ten activists from the group Climate Direct Action are arrested for attempting to shut down all tar sands oil by turning off pipelines in Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and Washington state. The group says their action was in support of the call for International Days of Prayer and Action for Standing Rock.

10/18: Standing Rock Sioux tribal council votes to allow its land to be used as a new site for Native Americans and their supporters to protests against DAPL. The camp has between 500-700 people and the new site is about two miles south of the Seven Council Fires camp on US Army Corps of Engineers property.

Blockades are set up on Highway 1806 and another on county road 134 to protect the camp from militarized law enforcement, the Highway 1806 blockade is later removed after discussion with law enforcement. Chairman Archambault II asks the U.S. Department of Justice to immediately intervene in the escalating situation.

10/24: A group of water protectors moved their camp to Cannonball Ranch (recently purchased by Dakota Access), the Oceti Sakowin says it is enacting eminent domain on DAPL lands (citing the 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie to argue ownership).

10/25: Actor Mark Ruffalo makes an appearance at the new camp in support of the protest, and former Vice President Al Gore pens a letter affirming the Standing Rock’s opposition to the pipeline. Meanwhile, water protectors brace themselves for escalating military and police force, with pipeline company Dakota Access LLC issuing a statement that trespassers will be prosecuted and “removed from the land”.

The same day, Federal Aviation Administration issues a no-fly zone over the contested lands through November 4. Standing Rock Sioux chairman Dave Archambault II issues a statement calling upon the Department of Justice to investigate the policing of the protests against Dakota Access.

10/26: Rev. Jesse Jackson visits protesters to affirm his support, calling the situation the “ripest case of environmental racism I’ve seen in a long time”. An investigation concludes that the dogs used on Sep. 3 against the protesters were not properly licensed.

10/27: After a tense standoff on Highway 1806, law enforcement officials forcibly remove protesters from private land near Cannonball, ND, dismantling a barricade and arresting 141 activists in total.

Emergency commission meets in ND Governor’s office and voted to borrow an additional $4 million to fund law enforcement deployments (total line of credit extended to ND DoES is $10 million)

11/7: Norwegian bank DNB says it is “reconsidering its participation” in financing the DAPL. They are loaning about 10% of the cost of the project, roughly $350 million. This is in the face of more than 20 environmental groups, led by Netherlands based advocacy organization “BankTrack” calling on the banks funding the DAPL to halt further loan payments.

11/8: Energy Transfer Partners announces that drilling under Lake Oahe will start in two weeks despite government agencies requests to wait for easement.

11/12: Water protectors hold a prayer march on dirt road near Dakota Access operations in Mandan, ND. Angered by the demonstration, an armed white man fires several shots into the air, and attempts to run his truck into the crowd, running over and injuring at least one person. Morton County Police are investigating the matter.

11/14: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers places a hold on tunneling below Lake Oahe (the Missouri River), citing insufficient review of environmental factors and lack of tribal consultation. In a joint statement with the Department of the Interior, the Corps asserts that “The Army will work with the Tribe on a timeline that allows for robust discussion and analysis to be completed expeditiously.”

Energy Transfer Partners file a cross-claim, arguing that the easement was already given to Dakota Access by the Corps, thus giving them the legal right-of-way to complete the pipeline.

3/28/17: Chase Iron Eyes pleads not guilty to riot and trespassing charges.

How Does it Violate Federal Law?

1868 Fort Laramie Treaty: Guarantees the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe shall enjoy the “undisturbed use and occupation” of their permanent homeland and the Reservation.

Executive Order 12898 on Environmental Justice: The original route of the DAPL was across the Missouri River north of Bismarck, but the crossing was moved to “avoid populated areas,” so now it’s planned to cross the aquifer of the Great Sioux Reservation instead of crossing upriver of the state’s capital.

Pipeline Safety Act and Clean Water Act: The emergency plan for the pipeline must estimate the maximum possible spill (49 CFR 195.452(h)(iv)(i)), but the DAPL refuses to release this information to the tribe. DAPL hasn’t identified publicly the Missouri River crossing as high consequence even though it would cross critical drinking water and intakes for the water systems.

National Environmental Policy Act: Detailed Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) are to be completed for major actions affecting the environment. Dakota Access has only done an Environmental Assessment, which is a lesser study commonly used by agencies to circumvent a more thorough EIS. A EIS would determine direct and indirect effects of the project and “possible conflicts...with Indian land use plans and policies…(and) cultural resources” 40 CFR 1502.16

Executive Order 13007 on Protection of Sacred Sites: Given there are historical ceremony sites and burial grounds in the immediate area of the Missouri River crossing, and that this executive order says “in managing federal lands, each executive branch agency shall avoid adversely affecting the physical integrity of such sites,” the Corps must deny the DAPL permit.

Who’s Financially Supporting it?

38 banks are directly supporting the companies building the pipeline, totaling $10.25 billion in loans and credit facilities. These banks are increasing our dependence on fossil fuels.

Energy Transfer Family:

Sunoco Logistics: ($2.5 billion revolving credit from 24 banks) (provides transportation, terminalling and acquisition and marketing services to crude oil markets. Energy Transfer Partnership owns a 99.9% interest in Sunoco Partners LLC.)

Energy Transfer Partners: ($3.75 billion revolving credit from 26 banks, going toward expanding oil and gas infrastructure holdings)

Energy Transfer Equity: ($1.5 billion revolving credit from 26 banks) (a sister partnership to Energy Transfer Partners)

Dakota Access: ($2.5 billion project-level loans by 17 banks for construction of pipeline) (subsidiary of Energy Transfer Crude Oil Company, which is part of the Energy Transfer Company)

List of banks:

Bank of Nova Scotia: $100 million (Sunoco Logistics)

Citizens Bank: $72.5 million (Sunoco Logistics)

Comerica Bank: $72.5 million (Sunoco Logistics)

Commercial Banking continued its solid performance with record revenue and net income this quarter. Asset & Wealth Management had strong underlying performance driven by record balances in banking, as well as record AUM & client assets.”
