Bank of America to pay $1 mln to settle racially biased hiring allegations
Robert Iafolla
(Reuters) – Bank of America has agreed to pay $1 million to settle 24-year-old allegations that it systematically denied entry level jobs to black applicants, the U.S. Labor Department announced on Monday.
Bank of America will pay the money in back wages and interest to more than 1,000 applicants for clerical, teller and administrative jobs at the bank’s Charlotte, North Carolina headquarters, according to the department. The bank was represented by McGuireWoods in the matter.
Under the terms of the settlement, Bank of America did not admit to liability. Bank spokesman Andy Aldridge said in an emailed statement that the bank disagrees with the Labor Department’s findings but is glad for the case to be over.
The settlement “is a win for the affected job applicants, for Bank of America and for the department,” Thomas Dowd, acting director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), said in a statement.
The case began with an OFCCP audit of the Charlotte headquarters of NationsBank in 1993, which became part of Bank of America in 1998 after various mergers and acquisitions.
OFCCP filed an administrative complaint in 1997 accusing the bank of intentionally discriminating against black candidates in violation of a 1965 executive order prohibiting government contractors from racially biased hiring and employment practices.
Litigation stretched for more than 15 years. Bank of America challenged the agency’s selection of its Charlotte headquarters for the OFCCP compliance review and that it had consented to regulators’ search of its records. The department in 2008 added another class of applicants who were allegedly discriminated against.
Labor Department Administrative Law Judge Linda Chapman in Washington, D.C. ruled in 2013 that the bank had discriminated against black applicants in 1993 and between 2002 and 2005. She recommended that the bank pay just under $1 million to the first group of applicants and $1.2 to the second group.
In 2016, the department’s Administrative Review Board affirmed Chapman’s ruling for the 1993 group, but reversed her on the 2003 to 2005 group.
Bank of America challenged that ruling at the U.S. District Court for D.C. in 2016, arguing that it violated the Administrative Procedures Act. The bank said that the administrative ruling was premised on a “fundamental misunderstanding” of systemic discrimination cases, including the proof required and how statistics are used in such cases.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in D.C. has entered an order to stay the proceedings until Bank of America fully complies with the terms of the settlement agreement, according to the Labor Department.
The case is Bank of America v. U.S. Labor Department, U.S. District Court for D.C., No. 16-968.

For the defendant: Peter Wechsler of the Justice Department

Normally, I avoid fear mongering. But
I do post credible warnings in hope of acting as a deterrent.  Nassiri Bahman is an Iranian
monarchist & filmmaker who claims to have received insider knowledge of 9-11, Bin Laden’s death, and now, a lethal attack on a US city. So far he has been ignored by US authorities and the “conspiracy” media. He believes the Iranian leadership belong to the Illuminati. By putting Muslim extremists in power, the Illuminati are deliberately fomenting a world war.   In other words, the Zionist-Islam conflict is just as phony as the US-Soviet Cold War.

“I have now received information from the same source, that the next big attack on U.S. soil will be chemical and biological, to be carried out soon.” 

Dear Mr. Makow,

I was introduced to your blog by a bright 13 yr. old boy called Scott, who has told me that you have savvy readers and followers.

I am an Iranian exile turned into an Iranian-American film maker, and I am also a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Freemason, but I can assure you that if there are Political Lodges in the U.S. , I have not been involved with them.

I released a feature film on 1/1/11 called  “The Golden Veil” which shows the conspiracy behind the Iranian revolution and the U.S. hostage crisis, foreshadowing what is happening today in the Middle East.

My latest interview with Rick Wiles of Trunews ( begins at 18.25 min) serves to expose The Illuminati as we call it, or “The Eagles” as they call themselves. By releasing such information I may have risked my life, but I have no fear, because the 30th degree taught me not to be afraid of death.

I urge your savvy readers to watch my Trunews interview first, and then read the following:

I have a reliable source of information. The identity of the source I shall never release, but my records and predictions speak for themselves.

IF ENOUGH AMERICANS KNOW THE TRUTH, IT MAY SERVE TO PREVENT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DEATHS.

Few months before the 9/11 attack, I received reliable information that gave advanced warning of it.  I gave the information to the FBI in Palm Springs, CA., but they ignored it.  My lawyer based in Palm Desert holds a copy of my handwritten and dated letter to the FBI.

lightbox_cover1.jpg(left, This 2013 “Person of the Year” TIME Cover is the Illuminati’s way of saying very bad things are in store for Americans. See, Grim Obama TIME Cover a Warning?)

Few years later I received information from the same source, that Osama Bin Laden was sick, receiving medical treatment in a secret location in Iran.  I gave the information to the FBI and they told me that the Anti-Terrorism department in Los Angeles would be in touch with me,  but no one got in touch with me and I was ignored once again.

Soon after that, I received information that Bin Laden was dead and buried in a secret location along the Iran/Afghan border. This time I did not bother reporting it.

I have now received information from the same source, that the next big attack on U.S. soil will be chemical and biological, to be carried out soon.  I have reported the information to Deputy Chief Michael Downing, Counter Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau in the form of emails, but as of today he seems to be ignoring me for the third time – WHY ?  – I have even offered to drive for 3 hours to see him in Los Angeles and go through the details with him,  but there is no response.  I would like to ask your readers to save this writing for future reference, should such disaster occur.
WHY do important officials in charge ignore people such as me who want to help ?

My only answer to this question is :

These men are the Architects of Chaos,  these are the men who want such horrific events to take place.  They do not wish to prevent them.
A chemical or biological terrorist attack on U.S. soil, “provoked” by an attack on Syria,  would certainly provide the excuse to begin a large scale war against the Middle East with the ultimate goal of a complete invasion and massacring millions of inhabitants.

It is about time the American people realized that there are invisible hands within The United States who engineer these acts, to serve their agendas.   These men (The Eagles) meet once a month in a secret temple in Washington D.C., they have rituals very similar to Freemasons,  they are no more than a few hundred, and they rule our lives.

The Eagles are the world’s most powerful Bankers, Arms Manufacturers and Oil Barons, mainly controlled by the Brits.  Everything you have seen happening in the Middle East since 1979 has been planned and executed by these powerful men, and their Master Plan is what I have explained in my Trunews Interview – http://youtu.be/Izz8cISo5Ts  i.e. polarization and invasion.

Perhaps, if this statement is published on your blog, and I send them the link, it may serve to force them to talk to me and analyze the information I have received,  unless they wish for the attack to take place. If enough Americans become aware of this, hopefully it may prevent the biggest terrorist disaster in America’s history.

Only Christ can save us now.

Regards,  Bahman Nassiri
——————————————-
Bahman sent me this info on Freemasonry:

The way the Masonic order is designed, is absolutely BRILLIANT.
They initiate you and make you believe that you are a holy man doing charities and helping your Brethren.
They make you believe that the order is not political whatsoever.
They make you believe there are 33 degrees (all philosophical) , and nothing more.

The real truth is, Brethren reach the 33rd or 32nd degrees and have no clue what it’s all about.
The truth is, there’s a higher level.
The invisible eyes watching the brethren pick some whom they can trust, who are extremely wealthy, powerful and important, and are useful to them, and initiate them into the higher level, THAT IS THE ILLUMINATI , or to be more correct, THE EAGLES.

From Jim Perloff –

Henry, here are a couple of related links:
One is this article on FEMA and other agencies preparing for a U.S. event: http://www.thesleuthjournal.com/fema-preparing-major-event-region-iii/
Another is this article: http://thecommonsenseshow.com/2013/08/26/syrias-reichstag-moment/  (first addresses Syria, then the possibility of an attack at home)
I hope that the information and predictions are inaccurate. However, one thing is certain–the US is beating the drums loudly for war against Syria. This when the dust isn’t even settled yet in Libya and Egypt, we’ve been at war in Afghanistan for 12 years, and fought a war in Iraq for nearly as long over weapons of mass destruction that did not even exist. Of course, I don’t know if the attack on the US is really coming or not.  However, it might not be a bad idea for concerned citizens, according to their own judgement, to send prudent email inquiries about it to legislators, law enforcement agencies and/or mainstream news reporters. It might make it harder to carry off the “false flag”–it would be hard for law enforcement personnel to claim that they knew nothing about the event, if records would show they had received numerous inquiries about it in advance.

Freddie Mac Is Putting an 83 Year Old Lady Out on the Street!


It never ceases to amaze me.  With all these numerous govt. programs that are supposed to be helping Homeowners/Borrowers stay in their homes, I have to wonder just who the hell it is that they are allegedly helping.  A case in Colorado, that I have become aware of, the 83 year old woman is most likely going to be on the streets next week.  And guess who is putting her out of her home.?.  Freddie Mac.

For some stupid reason, I was under the impression that Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and others, along with all these billions of dollars from the robo-signing settlements, and the numerous entities alleging to be aiding those being foreclosed upon, and not one of them does a damned thing that I can see.  The propaganda they feed to everyone in the media, might sound good…You know that the housing market has picked up, foreclosures are down, new home buyers are up.?.  Yea right.  Somebody forgot to tell our neighborhood.  The vacant houses are still vacant.  Houses that should sale for $90,000, sell for $36,000.

But hey, the housing market has recovered.  RRRRiiiiiiiiiiiiggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttttt!!!  In your dreams.

Unless and until the someone steps in, slaps these foreclosure mill attorneys around, you know, the ones that make up the fictional documents in the County’s Land Records, throw their asses in jail for the forgery, fraud, perjury, that they are so used to committing,  they ain’t ever gonna stop.  

Has anyone other than myself noticed that the foreclosure mill attorneys, and other attorneys who on a regular basis have been foreclosing on Borrowers/Homeowner and manufacturing documents to use to foreclose with; sign the Assignments, Deeds Under Power, and lie to the Courts; an have been doing it so long now, yes, they have been breaking the law for so long now in foreclosure cases, it has spilled over to other types of cases.  No matter what kind of case it is, there are certain attorneys, who continue breaking the law as if they were working a foreclosure case.  And the worst part, is the judges let them.  WTF?  It is bad.  They are violating the RICO, committing fraud, forgery, theft, perjury, and God only knows what else.

Now you have the full swat teams going to evictions.  If the cops don’t like the way things are going, they just kill the homeowner.  It has gotten way out of hand.   Looks like if you fight the banks and win, you either go to jail, or die.

Be safe yall!

FHFA HEAD TARGETED


Former FHFA Head DeMarco Targeted by Disgruntled Ex-COO

Handcuffs_Blue_Pic_05_07_14

Last week, Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Chief Operating Officer Richard Hornsby reportedly threatened to shoot the Agency’s former top official, Edward DeMarco. According to Bloomberg, the threat was made as part of a murder-suicide Hornsby had planned regarding Hornby’s job performance ratings as reported by DeMarco.

Hornsby was arrested April 29, charged with a single felony of threatening to kidnap or injure a person. DeMarco was taken to a secure location the following day. Hornsby has since been released as long as he does not assault, harass, threaten or stalk DeMarco. There is also a restraining order placed on Hornsby as a result of the threat.

The threat reportedly stems from a negative performance rating. This resulted in Hornsby making overtly threatening comments toward DeMarco at an accelerated rate. May 14 has been set as the date for when the next hearing is held for this case.

Hornsby began working at the FHFA in November 2011, after 25-plus years in various management roles at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. FHFA Head Mel Watt has named Eric Stein, a Treasury Department official who joined the FHFA in early 2014, as interim FHFA COO.


FHFA Settles With BofA for $5.83 Billion Over Countrywide Legacy Loans

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has announced it has reached a settlement in cases involving Bank of America, Countrywide Financial, Merrill Lynch, and certain named individuals totaling approximately $5.83 billion. Bank of America Corporation owns Countrywide and Merrill Lynch. The cases alleged violations of federal and state securities laws in connection with private-label, residential mortgage-backed securities (PLS) purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac between 2005 and 2007. Allegations of common law fraud were made in the Countrywide and Merrill Lynch cases.

The Agreement provides for an aggregate payment of approximately $9.33 billion by Bank of America that includes the litigation resolution as well as a purchase of securities by Bank of America from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

“FHFA has acted under its statutory mandate to recover losses incurred by the companies and American taxpayers and has concluded that this resolution represents a reasonable and prudent settlement of these cases,” said FHFA Director Melvin L. Watt. “This settlement also represents an important step in helping restore stability to our broader mortgage market and moving to bring back the role of private firms in providing mortgage credit. Many potential homeowners will benefit from increasing certainty in the marketplace and that is very much the direction we should be taking.”

Of the 18 PLS suits filed in 2011, FHFA now has claims remaining in seven suits against various institutions and remains committed to satisfactory resolution of these pending actions.

The settlement agreement regarding private label securities claims between FHFA and Bank of America involves the following cases: Federal Housing Finance Agency v. Bank of America Corp., et al., No. 11 Civ. 6195 (DLC) (S.D.N.Y.); Federal Housing Finance Agency v. Countrywide Financial Corp., et al., No. 12 Civ. 1059 (MRP) (C.D. Cal.); Federal Housing Finance Agency v. Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc., et al., No. 11 Civ. 6202 (DLC) (S.D.N.Y.); as well as one Merrill Lynch security in Federal Housing Finance Agency v. First Horizon National Corp., No. 11 Civ. 6193 (DLC) (S.D.N.Y.).
