(Editor’s Note: The Video that was here previously has been removed by the user that published it on YouTube. Sorry Folks.)
Watching this video is beyond disturbing because of the explanation of what happened to IndyMac and their mortgages. The financial rape we (and our children) are currently enduring comes very close to the treasonous policy that allows our intelligence services to assassinate Americans they suspect of terrorism without due process.
Watch the entire video because it will explain in detail the money trail and why so few mortgage modifications are being made. No wonder they would not allow the banking systems to collapse, there wouldn’t be any bad paper to make an outrageous profit off of.
