… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

“… The Fall of Many - Seen It Yet?

You are going to see more and more personal secrets being revealed about persons in high places of popularity or government. It will seem like an epidemic of non-integrity! But what is happening is exactly what we have been teaching. The new energy has light that will expose the darkness of things that are not commensurate with integrity. They have always been there, and they were kept from being seen by many who keep secrets in the dark. Seen the change yet?

In order to get to a more stable future, you will have to go through gyrations of dark and light. What this means is that the dark is going to be revealed and push back at you. It will eventually lose. We told you this. That's what you're here for is to help those around you who don't see an escape from the past. They didn't get their nuclear war, but everything else is going into the dumper anyway. … “

Bankers ready to take legal action to protect bonuses

As banks decide on 2011 pay, City lawyer Paul Quain warns that they will be hit by legal claims

British banks will be hit by legal claims in 2012 from bankers who have been denied bonuses, a City employment lawyer has warned.

The prediction comes as the banks are in the process of deciding how to pay their staff for 2011 – a year in which the sector's share prices have been among the worst performers in the FTSE 100 – and despite banker bonuses being viewed with a mixture of horror and astonishment outside the Square Mile.

Paul Quain, a partner at GQ Employment Law, said: "Although the banks will have a robust case, there are still likely to be legal claims in the new year because the concept of having the right to receive a discretionary bonus is so strongly embedded in the minds of many bank staff.

"There is huge disconnect between bankers' perception of their rights and the legal reality. Bankers seem to have an expectation that they are entitled to a bonus under almost any circumstances, which has been fed by over 20 years of high bonus rounds."

The legal test for whether a bank's decision on discretionary bonus awards can be challenged as a breach of contract is whether it can be seen as irrational, Quain added, in that no other reasonable bank would have come to the same decision.

Despite the actions of many in the industry being viewed as one of the causes of the financial crisis and subsequent state bailouts of banks, bankers are still pursuing their employers for what they argue they are owed.

The bankers claim that Commerzbank, which bought Dresdner Kleinwort, should have honoured an agreement to provide a €400m bonus pool for 2008. Dresdner Kleinwort reported a €6.3bn loss for 2008, which Commerzbank believes changed its commitment to the bankers.

The latest bonus season comes as Britain's banks have been told by Sir Mervyn King, the governor of the Bank of England, to restrain bonuses and dividends in order to build up their financial strength in the face of the eurozone crisis. This week, the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, also issued a blunt warning to Britain's state-controlled banks, telling them they will face tough restrictions if they attempt to introduce "irresponsible payments"during the forthcoming bonus season.

Meanwhile, Bob Diamond, the chief executive of Barclays, which avoided a state bailout, has rejected as "completely speculative" reports that his bank is preparing to pay its investment bankers a total of £5bn, including salary. He has said that pay at Barclays Capital, the investment banking division, will fall this year.

City bonuses are expected to total £4.2bn in 2011, down 38% on the £6.7bn paid out last year, according to the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) thinktank.

The size of individual bonus payouts will be increased by the wave of job losses that have hit the City, meaning the bonus pools will be shared by fewer bankers. Up to 27,000 City-type jobs are expected to have been lost over 2011.

However, while total bonuses of £4.2bn will generate about £2.5bn for the Treasury, according to the CEBR, this is still some distance from the taxes gathered during recent boom years.

"This is a long way down from the £6.8bn collected in the peak of 2007-08, clearly illustrating how the taxpayer also misses out when the City pays lower bonuses," the thinktank states.
