Do Not Look Behind the Curtain

The longest-serving of the regulars of the Portland Peaceful Response Coalition, bearers of the weekly Friday at Five O’Clock Anti-War Witness at Pioneer Courthouse Square, Herschel Soles, writes

I was up in the third row and overheard his aid[e] pass on the “Hands UP- Don’t Shoot” demonstrator’s request for 4.5 minutes of microphone time to Senator Wyden. I did see Ron shake his head in the negative and say “No!” That makes his expressed disappointment about not having a dialogue see[m] so disingenuous. Yielding 4.5 minutes of mike time would have allowed the Town Hall to proceed but Ron is to subservient to the Oligarchs.

One Response to Do Not Look Behind the Curtain

    I am sorry that I missed your last rally Michael. I was recently feeling satisfactory enough to go out and video film for you but in the past days had to rest up due to my prevailing condition. I would have liked to see Ron Wyden in person, as I also recently contacted his secretaries at his local Portland Office, as you and others may know that I have a $5,000 Trust Receivership Certificate waiting for delivered payment to me from the FDIC as JPMorgan Chase paid the fine of 13.8 Billion a year ago to us as prior home-owners suffering wrongful foreclosure of our homes and our funds are still sitting in the FDIC holding status for over 6 years now. Many thousands if not millions of Americans are suppose to receive our Trust Receivership Certificates as payoff from that fine that JPMorgan Chase paid in November 2013. But when you call the FDIC, their officers just say, “oh well it’s all in deliberations and you might get your payoff by 2017”. Even though we have waited since 2008, after 6 years, and the wheels of bureaucracy are now once again turning backwards. I was getting excited when Ron’s secretary called me personally and assured that she would forward my letter of complaint about the FDIC dragging their heels- she even offered to encourage me that Ron Wyden is the head of the Senate Finance Committee (that was a few months ago,) then low and behold, the recent Republican nominations rendered that Ron Wyden is no longer the head of that Finance Committee. Is this the servitude as all that we as American citizens are to expect from the FDIC to protect our banking funds? A changing of the political guard and it’s like the financial crash of 1929 on Wall Street all over again. We as American banking customers lose again!
