Jeb Bush quitting Barclays

Amid increasing signs that he intends to run for president, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will leave his position at Barclays on Dec. 31, according to a report.

The potential Republican 2016 contender is currently a paid adviser for the British bank.

This would be the same Barclays that's up to its ears in every financial scandal in the book - FX rigging, LIBOR rigging, etc. Wonder what role he played, if any? Seems that evading regulatory oversight and hiding abuses is exactly what you'd hire an elitist insider politician to advise you on...

The money trail will remain unbroken, count on that.

7. Didn't Mitt also clean himself up prior to running for pres?

and they certainly sent out an entire army of scrubbers to clean up GW Bush's sordid past.
Typical GOP M.O.

10. Barclays received $868 BILLION in the Great Bankster Bailout of '08.

We'd never know it, either, were not for Bernie Sanders and the likes of DUer Man from Pickens.

PDF of The FED audit. See page 131 (144 on my puter's PDF readerthing).

What bugs me most is the fact The Fed can materialze money out of thin air to help their rich cousins in ANOTHER FREAKING COUNTRY but can't raise a finger to help the City of Detroit

Fine bank. Should be fined out of existence.
