… 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. … “

Lloyds Banking Group's bosses were 'reckless', say lawyers for US investors

Aggrieved investors are suing Sir Victor Blank and Eric Daniels, the former chairman and chief of Lloyds Banking Group

Lloyds Banking Group's former chief executive, Eric Daniels, and previous chairman, Sir Victor Blank, have been accused of "reckless disregard for the truth" in a class action lawsuit filed in the US by a retired British sea captain.

Lawyers say that shareholders lost an estimated £14bn as Lloyds shares crashed after news of its emergency acquisition of its troubled rival HBOS in 2008. About 1,400 US residents and numerous institutions that bought Lloyds TSB shares on the New York stock exchange could claim compensation.

The case is being fronted by a 79-year-old former merchant navy captain, Albert Ross, who is originally from Scotland and now lives near New Orleans. He and his wife risk losing their home after the family's investment in Lloyds wiped more than $340,000 (£220,000) from their retirement fund.

Ross, a writer of seafaring novels including the self-published Truth, Half Truth and Lies, told reporters: "My wife and I face losing everything we have worked for. It is not just our home but our dignity. We are proud people who have worked hard to maintain our independence only to see everything stripped away from us."

Days after the HBOS acquisition was announced in September 2008, lawyers say that the troubled British bank was "technically insolvent". Because information was kept back, the market did not begin to understand the true nature of its financial woes until February 2009, when a £10bn annual loss was reported.

Announcing the merger, Daniels described it as "a fantastic deal", saying that the combined companies would have a "robust capital position". However, by 1 October, HBOS had been forced to take emergency loans from the Bank of England, which later peaked at £25.4bn, and borrow an estimated $11.5bn from the US Federal Reserve.

During an analyst call on 13 October, Daniels continued to assert that the HBOS acquisition was a "very good deal" for shareholders. Papers filed by lawyers acting for Ross claim the reverse was true: "At that point, HBOS was not only insolvent on a cashflow basis, but on the basis that its assets were substantially exceeded by its liabilities."

Reference is made to a subsequent report by the Bank of England governor, Mervyn King, who said that without the emergency loans, HBOS "would not have survived". The claim is that Blank and Daniels "acted with knowledge of or reckless disregard for the truth in omitting and/or misrepresenting material facts" regarding the bailout, which if true could put them in breach of the US Exchange Act.

"United States securities law is very clear about the heavy consequences of withholding important information which investors are entitled to know when purchasing shares," said Jim Swanson, a partner for the firm bringing the suit.

Lloyds has been listed on the New York stock exchange since 2001, and is bound to report company information in accordance with US market rules. If the Securities and Exchange Commission, the US regulator, pursues its own investigation, it can impose hefty fines. Last year Goldman Sachs paid a record $550m after misleading investors in the marketing of sub-prime mortgages.

Lloyds declined to comment and spokesmen for Blank and Daniels did not respond to requests for comment.
