"If you are familiar with the "Fast and Furious" investigation, or lack there of, please tell me if I am crazy to think that the current penalties handed by the DoJ (headed up by non other than Eric Holder) against HSBC for the laundering of billions in drug cartel money, might be a little bit sketchy! I'm thinking there is something way deeper! To have a investigation into the transportation of guns into the cartels hands, as well as the laundering of money, and the only result is no investigation and a $1.2 billion dollar fine? You mean to tell me no one is in jail yet..... Who is really behind all this?"
And the following is my response to this person, and I thought I'd share with you:
In my humblest opinion, at the lower level this was a legitimate gun sting operation. At the very highest levels this was a planned "False Flag" event. It was to be used to demonize the 2nd Amendment and change the culture of gun ownership through fear. As Eric Holder said back in 1995: "Really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way." This is coming from the guy who was Deputy Attorney General during Waco disaster. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYyqBxD-3xw&list=HL1357630871&feature=mh_lolz
As for the penalty handed down to that bank, it seems to me to be a scape goat effort to quell the outrage. Especially considering other large US banks have also been caught, such as Wachovia laundering over 378 Billion in drug money(http://tinyurl.com/bkphn2h). But even if they "fined" every single bank involved, it really does nothing to penalize the people responsible. The bank is a corporation that will just pass the cost of the fine on to customers or employees, such as what Bank of America did (or tried to do) with the 5 dollar debit fee after getting fined.
"Since the 2006 crackdown on cartels that the United States urged on, between 35,000 and 40,000 people have been killed by drug violence in Mexico alone."(http://tinyurl.com/buhzyju) The DoJ needs to CRIMINALLY PROSECUTE and JAIL people involved, from bank heads to government officials that green lighted this terrible program. But it is kind of hard to do that when the people involved were most likely among the top ranks of the DoJ in the first place.
Lastly, If US banks will launder their money, and US government arms them with fully automatic rifles and hand grenades, who is helping them ship their narcotics all over the US? The CIA has been accused of trafficking drugs to fund black ops that they do not want to divulge to Congress. They even address the accusation on their official website(http://tinyurl.com/b2jro6q)
When it comes down to it, this event is just one in a string of large scale disasters that ALL stink of nefarious intentions and inconsistent facts. Just research WTC Building 7 if you have any doubts about that.
