Three Chinese Banks Expanding in U.S.

Chinese banks are expanding their presence in the United States, which could boost more M&A activity.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The Federal Reserve gave three state-owned Chinese banks its stamp of approval Thursday to expand their presence in the United States.

The central bank accepted an application from Industrial and Commerce Bank of China Ltd. (IDCBY) (ICBC), along with China Investment Corporation and Central Huijin Investment, to become bank holding companies by purchasing up to an 80% stake in New York-based Bank of East Asia U.S.A.

The approval marks the first time the Fed has allowed any large Chinese bank to purchase a U.S. bank, and it could boost merger and acquisition activity "as Chinese banks may look to acquire regional banks in order to establish a U.S. footprint," said Guggenheim senior policy analyst Jaret Seiberg, in a research note.

ICBC entered into an agreement with the Bank of East Asia in January 2011, and has been waiting for the Fed's okay.

"The issue [had] been whether the Federal Reserve would bless the Chinese regulatory system," said Seiberg. Now, the Fed's approval means that "the Chinese met the key supervisory standard required for its banks to own U.S. banks and to take U.S. deposits."

Meanwhile, the Fed also granted the Bank of China (BACHY) permission to open its fourth U.S. branch in Chicago. The Beijing-based bank already has two branches in New York and one in Los Angeles.

And the Agricultural Bank of China (ACGBY) won approval to open its first U.S. branch in New York. All three applications were unanimously approved by Fed chief Ben Bernanke, vice chairwoman Janet Yellen, and Fed governors Elizabeth Duke, Daniel Tarullo and Sarah Bloom Raskin.

Humanity is on the Verge
of Incredible Opportunity and Excitement

05/09/2012 by John Smallman

When you all awaken into the amazing brilliance of Realty your joy will be ecstatic.  It truly is your natural state – constant ecstatic joy – and it will be as though you had never left, which of course you never did.  Your memories of pain, fear, betrayal, scarcity, and suffering of any kind, which are such heavy burdens for you now, will be no more — because they were completely illusory and dissolved with the illusion.

While you are experiencing the illusion as real, this is very difficult for you to understand, and many of you might think that not to have memories of these bad times would be a loss, something that would detract from the joy of awakening into Reality and finding that they had dissolved.  But this is not the case.  To be in joy with absolutely no memory of the illusion is to be completely released from that unhappy state and from any shadow it could cast on your present enjoyment.

People who have undergone traumas in their lives try to forget them, try to deny that they ever happened, and are frequently plagued with horrific nightmares in which they relive the intensity of those ghastly experiences, and as a result they often dread going to sleep.  So too do children who have had terrifying nightmares of various sorts.

Memories of this nature could only detract from your peace and joy, and in any case there would be no point at all in having memories of horrific experiences that never actually occurred.  In Reality your experience is always now and it is always infinitely joyful, because that is the state that Reality maintains eternally for all of God’s divine creation.

To be awake is to be in joy, harmonizing with all of creation in a glorious symphony of creativity that never ceases to amaze and astonish all with the infinite possibilities that it constantly provides.  When you awaken, your expression ”Never a dull moment” — which normally carries an air of regret or lament — will be infinitely and exhilaratingly surpassed!

Humanity is on the verge of incredible opportunity and excitement, as the moment for your awakening moves forward to meet you with increasing rapidity. Do not let the doubts or skepticism of others distract you from your duties as Light-holders, which is to encourage and inspire all with whom you interact in any way at all, by demonstrating loving attitudes and compassionate behavior in every situation in which you find yourselves.

Strange Timing: Michele Bachmann Becomes a Swiss Citizen

Former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann recently became a citizen of Switzerland after her husband claimed his heritage.

“Congresswoman Bachmann’s husband is of Swiss descent so she has been eligible for dual-citizenship since they got married in 1978,” Becky Rogness said in a statement to POLITICO, which first reported the story in the United States. “However, recently some of their children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual-citizenship so they went through the process as a family.”

Marcus Bachmann reportedly began the process to claim his citizenship on Feb. 15, according to POLITICO. That process was finalized on March 19, giving Michele citizenship as well, the website reported.

Bachmann’s three youngest children are now Swiss citizens too, and her two older children also eligible to apply.

The Minnesota congresswoman was interviewed by Swiss reporters in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday while with a group of Swiss parliamentarians and she discussed her family’s heritage.

“My husband is a 100 percent Swiss, and his parents were raised in Switzerland, they were married there, they came to the United States, they bought a farm in Wisconsin and raised their three sons there,” Bachmann said in the interview.

When a reporter reminds her that she is now eligible to run for office in Switzerland, she laughed, saying the the competition would be very stiff “because they are very good,” referring to the parliamentarians with her.

Asked what she likes about the European nation, Bachmann said it’s “tough not to find a place to like in Switzerland,” citing the country’s beauty and famous chocolates.

Blossom Goodchild - May 9, 2012

Good morning to you. There is information given out lately that very soon things will really begin to get underway and I am imagining that from then on the show will begin. What wisdom could you offer us regarding our best action?

First and foremost we would advise you to stay calm and centred. That which is to undeniably unfold will shock your world to the core. More so than your imagination can imagine. It is NOW dearest ones that all you have prepared to face shall be IN YOUR FACE!  There shall be no escaping from that which is to be uncovered. You cannot go and hide and hope that it will all go away ... for that is the last thing that will happen . Once these very large cans of worms have been opened ... then that which shall be revealed will take your minds and hearts into a place of disbelief.
For Truly we say to you that you have not yet been capable to conceive in your hearts that which has gone on behind your backs. In all TRUTH ... it is too horrific.

These are very strong words.

Would you rather we wrap you in cotton wool?

Not at all. Best we are prepared.

Precisely. Yet that being disclosed … we would then turn your thought to your mission. Each one of you. Remember we have said to you of a time when you gathered in all strength long ago ... before you arrived on this planet and you held your Swords of Light high and made an oath to yourselves that you would diligently see this transformation through? You vowed you would rid this world of its darkness and bring it forth into the LIGHT .

Here now is the surge of power that is required for you to see this through.

When you are sitting bewildered and confused ... REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE.
We recognize that we have told you this many times … over and over we say to you of this. Because it is necessary. If you choose to forget ... then where shall your strength derive from?

The greatest asset you possess is THE LOVE THAT YOU ARE.

YOUR JOY … YOUR HAPPINESS …YOUR SELF CONTROL is the ONLY thing you need to make this work!

It may appear fickle to some … yet we would suggest you look upon this as an adventure. Keep your spirits bright NO MATTER WHAT.

When reading a novel one usually assumes that ‘They all lived happily ever after’ come the last chapter. You are in the last chapter dear ones and ready to begin the sequel entitled THE GOLDEN AGE.

There are those amongst you that are now awakening to their missions, as you are approaching a most intense period of activity. These Beings have been waiting for this particular time, to be available for the masses who will need guidance to understand what is going on around them. Events are going to move quite quickly, and there will be some confusion and fear as a result. All Lightworkers can assist in such times, and we ask them to be ready to share their knowledge with others. We shall continue to assist our allies and many Starseeds will come into their own, having been carefully prepared for exactly what their experience allows. There is so much being done to ensure you make the transition with Mother Earth, and that as many of you as possible succeed. Even those that are not yet ready require help, as they too need to be made aware as to what lies ahead for them.

According to your perspective of what is happening, you will go into shock or surprise when matters really gather speed. People need to understand that the upheaval is unavoidable, and is necessary to cleanse the Earth of low vibrations that cannot carry forward into the higher vibrations. All will find its rightful place and it cannot be otherwise. The Laws of the Universe are irrevocable and cannot be ignored without invoking karma. We will hope to have sufficient outlets that will provide all of the information that will be needed. Certainly the whole concept of the changes will need to be carefully explained, as some will undoubtedly feel that what will happen is an unwanted intrusion into their lives.

As you will have noticed, unrest is spreading across the world as the call for freedom and peace reaches new levels. People are now realising what power they have to bring about change, and no longer afraid to confront their leaders. It is having an effect and galvanising more of them to support the protests, and it is gradually bringing about results. So it shall continue and we have our own plans to ensure that you are not denied a return to lawful ways of living. With that those Laws that are against the Constitution will be revoked, and re-written. It is all moving ahead and very soon all those who have committed crimes against you, will find themselves removed form society.

NSA Document Admits ET Contact
Reposted from UFODIGEST
04/25/2011By Kevin W. Smith

On October 21, 2004, the NSA approved for release to the public a portion of their NSA Journal Vol. XIV No. 1.  This is a report of a presentation given to the NSA by Dr. Howard Campaigne regarding the decoding of extraterrestrial messages that had been received “form outer space”.  Apparently, these messages had actually been received via the Sputnik satellite, but no one had any idea how to decode them at the time.

At some time, unspecified in the document, Dr. Howard  Campaigne and some other NSA super mathematicians in the crypto department had been given the task of decoding the messages.  There were a total of 29 messages to be decoded—quite an undertaking.

It is curious, to say the least, that this document was cleared for release on October 21, 2004.  Why was that?  Because the NSA did not release it into public information until April 21, 2011.  Though cleared for release, the NSA had been stonewalling it along with hundreds of other NSA documents about contact with UFOs and extraterrestrials until they lost the lawsuit brought by Peter Gersten, a lawyer from Arizona.  When they well and truly lost, the judge’s order had to be carried out, and the documents had to be released.

Princess Mabel stops work at The Elders

Princess Mabel has resigned as general director of The Elders, a think tank created by Nelson Mandela in 2007.

The organisation says the princess made the decision to step down after her husband Prince Friso was seriously injured in a skiing accident in February. The prince is in a coma and is being cared for in a London hospital.

The think tank says Princess Mabel will continue to work part-time as a senior adviser. She and the children will continue to live in London.

The princess took up the post of general director on 1 July 2008. The Elders is an independent group of global leaders working together to promote peace and human rights. The organisation is chaired by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Sheldan Nidle’s Update from the Galactic Federation of Light and Spiritual Hierarchy

9 Ix, 7 Moan, 8 Manik

Dratzo! We return! A great foreboding is pervading the ranks of the dark cabal. Those in charge of bringing this once-invincible force to heel have started the final countdown for releasing a legal 'wrecking-ball' on them. The G-8 governments of your world, centered mainly in Europe and North America, sense that their long jig is truly up. They can see that the process to remove them formally from power, which has in fact been going on for decades, is now in its final crescendo. Despite a recent series of private meetings between their leaders and our liaisons, these G-8 nations have refused to distance themselves from those who have secretly ruled them from the headquarters of their banking and financial empires. This decision is to prove fatal to these once-mighty nations. Each of them, at one time, formed the backbone of a great economy which trod triumphantly over the world's nations, but now they are to suffer a massive reversal of fortune, and this will free your planet from the clutches of a tyranny that prevented the rise of your freedom and the establishing of your personal sovereignty.

The dark cabal's demise is the beginning of a series of positive developments that will be further enhanced by a huge boost in the level of electronic technology that is to be made available to you. Consciousness is an ever-growing awakening process, and is stimulated by interaction with electronic communication technologies. Every human carries within them much wisdom which can be unleashed by the mere presence of this growing artificial intelligence; as the quality of the interface increases, so consciousness increases. The dark has been drip-feeding you where this technology is concerned. You have been held back, both technologically and spiritually, by a dark governance that fears your awakening and is covetous of your dormant collective powers. These fears drove this cabal to use a type of mind-control that diminishes your abilities and encourages you to perceive their dominion as immutable and permanent. This is now about to be seen for the illusion it is, and a whole new ethos put in place which is far more compatible with your divine natures. This new ethos will form the foundation of a fully conscious society.
