Loss From Risky JP Morgan Trade Could Reach $9 Billion |  

The risky trading at mega-bank JP Morgan Chase that came to light last month — first reported as causing a $2 billion loss — could end up costing the bank up to $9 billion, according to internal reports. 

JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon was called to testify before Congress this month about the bank’s risky behavior, where, instead of pushing for stricter regulations, Senate Republicans asked him for marching orders.   JP Morgan plans to disclose part of its total trading losses in mid-July, when it will report its second-quarter earnings.

Bigger than the Immigration Decision!

A Nation at Risk.  Supreme Court hands our Democracy over to the Corporations, part II. 

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down Montana's century-old limits on corporate political spending, putting an end to the state's resistance to Citizens United and effectively expanding that controversial ruling to the state and local elections.

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, decided in January 2010, struck down federal limits on campaign spending by corporations and unions as violations of the First Amendment.

The Supreme Court must GO!  The only way to get rid of these fascists is to vote for Obama who will assuredly appoint TWO JUSTICES, replacing two who are about to retire.     Voting for Romney will make it worse, HE will make the appointments.  And we'll be stuck with these activist corporate-loving clowns for 25 years!   Virtually the end of citizen democracy.   Read the entire essay on Radioman's Facebook page.

Three Police Shot Dead at Mexico City Airport


MEXICO CITY—Gunmen with suspected ties to a drug cartel, wearing police uniforms, opened fire and killed three federal police officers at a food court in Mexico City's bustling international airport Monday morning, sending panicked passengers and bystanders to duck for cover under tabletops, according to officials and witnesses.

The grisly incident was the first of its kind at the airport, which is usually packed with locals and foreign tourists. It was also a rare reminder for residents of the relatively safe capital—and less than a week before the country's presidential elections—of the kinds of killings that happen every day across the country in turf wars between drug gangs that have killed at least 55,000 people in the past six years.  More from WSJ

 Reports of racial problems in Chicago being covered up by police and media.

author-image by Colin FlahertyEmail | Archive Colin Flaherty is a talk-show host, online ad agency owner and author of "White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America and how the media ignore it."

According to a statement in the Chicago Tribune, reporting on the race of individuals involved in news events, such as mobs attacking, robbing and vandalizing, is irrelevant.

A news anchor at the ABC affiliate in Chicago goes even further: Anyone who reads or writes about the epidemic of racial violence in Chicago is an “idiot” who engages in “meaningless … race baiting,” says Ravi Baichwal.
City officials and the media might be the only two places left where people still deny Chicago is under assault from more than 50 episodes of black mobs attacking, beating, robbing and vandalizing over the last three years in and around downtown. Many of them are on display at YouTube.

Some call it the “Chicago Intifada.”

Over just the last two weeks, black mobs are under investigation in at least five new violent incidents in downtown Chicago.

And according to the award-winning police blog Second City Cop, there may be 25 more incidents of mob violence and lawlessness in that weekend alone that were never reported.
