Russell Simmons is working with the Big Banks to swindle the Hip Hop Nation, Yet Again!!!


Hip hop mogul, Russell Simmons - or as he's known around these parts, 'Hustle Simmons' struck another victory for big banks against poor people. Hoorah for him! The debate on capitol hill that Russell Simmons and his new banking friends were having mostly involved so-called interchange fees, Interchange fees are incurred when a consumer uses their debit card at a retailer, the retailer's bank pays a 1 percent to 2 percent fee to the consumer's bank. The proposed bill was to allow retailers to cut the interchange fees, thereby allowing them to slash prices and pass on the savings to the consumer.

However, champion of the downtrodden, Russell Simmons - who, by the way, represents some of those banks being charged with his company UniRush, distributor of 'The Rush Card' - went on a campaign to make sure that interchange fees stay exactly the way they are. 


Russell Simmons even went so far as to garner support on the web with a blog post with the headline, "Democrats, Don't Do This to the Poor!". Russell Simmons then wrote a plea to lawmakers suggesting that he represents the poor:

 "I have worked all of my adult life as an advocate for the poor, the voiceless and the under-served," he wrote. "Debit cards are what keep the under-served -- including minorities, immigrants, the poor, soldiers, veterans and students -- from the claws of payday lenders and check cashers, from humiliating lines waiting to cash their paychecks and then more lines to pay their bills."

Meanwhile, the RushCard carries some of the highest fees in the industry. charging: monthly users are charged a $3 activation fee, plus $9.95 a month, $2.50 for an ATM withdrawal, $1 for a debit card transaction and 50 cents to check their balance at an ATM.  "Prepaid cards like the RushCard have all the fees associated with the worst bank accounts but don't encourage you to develop a banking relationship that helps you develop assets," said Ed Mierzwinski, director of the consumer program at U.S. PIRG, a federation of state Public Interest Research Groups. "That particular card has practically a fee for looking at it."

Obama the WEAK President replaces McChrystal with Bush buddie David Petraeus, as "never ending war policy continues"

President Barack Obama picks Gen. David Petraeus for Afhganistan
by
Berick Ballintine

The Mainsteam media does it's best to make "mr yes we can" appear to be a strong President by couching headlines to make it seem that President Obama fired Gen. McChrystal.
We know better, as the cry to end the useless wars in Iraq and Afganistan get louder the Whitehouse is using tricks like replacing commanders and manufacturing drama around 2 Wars that should have ended years ago. Mr Obama, we're tried of your crap!! Do the job or get out!! We Taxpayers want and end to these illegal Wars!

RED ALERT!!! Evidence Points To BP Oil Spill as a False Flag Operation, what's the Endgame???


Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones

- Sales of shares and stocks in days and weeks beforehand
- Halliburton link, acquisition of cleanup company days before explosion
- BP report cites undocumented tampering with well sealing equipment
- Government uses disaster to push for Carbon Tax, Nationalization talk
Troubling evidence surrounding the Deepwater Horizon explosion on April 20th suggests that the incident could have been manufactured.
On April 12th, just over one week before the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, Halliburton, the world's second largest oilfield services corporation, surprised some by acquiring Boots & Coots, a relatively small but vastly experienced oil
well control companies.
The company deals with fires and blowouts on oil rigs and oil wells. It was responsible for putting out roughly one third of the more than 700 oil well fires set in Kuwait by retreating Iraqi soldiers during the Gulf War.
The deal itself is still under scrutiny with Boots and Coots facing an ongoing investigation into "possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law"
Where this information gets really interesting is with the fact that Halliburton is named in the majority of some two dozen lawsuits filed since the explosion by Gulf Coast people and businesses who claim that the company is to blame for the disaster.
Halliburton was forced to admit in testimony at a congressional hearing last month that it carried out a cementing operation 20 hours before the Gulf of Mexico rig went up in flames. The lawsuits claim that four Halliburton workers stationed on the rig improperly capped the well

Dez Bryant showing Star potential at Cowboy rookie mini camp.

Photobucket


Bryant's most impressive catch of the day came on a curl when he grabbed a ball that was a little behind him and over his head and pulled it in before the defensive back could knock it away. He looked good fielding punts and got a good jump on one kick that was short. He did drop a deep pass when he was angled inside and had to turn outside to attempt the catch. Once the ball was on the ground, Bryant jumped up and pounded his chest to take the blame for the drop.
