Hmmmmmmmmmm, our longest running fund (and largest holder of hedgies) to hold out, just bailed~
They are all inter related. I still think TPG is behind the scenes hiding behind many layers of cronyism.

Mr Ford is hoping to lead the group of private equity firms, which includes Blackstone, Carlyle, Oakhill Capital Partners and TPG, according to people familiar with the possible transaction.
Here is the link.http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/...1de-be3f-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1IjOdnW1a
Then you can tie in Bonderman to Crandall of Oak Hill. Crandall also served on the board of WAMU at one time.http://investing.businessweek.com/businessweek/...nvestments%20L.L.C.http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0EIN/...97_Jan_13/ai_19014366/
Then you can tie Washington Mutual to Appaloosa, Oak Hill (Crandall bud of Bonderman), Goldman Sachs etc all thru Fried Frank.http://www.friedfrank.com/....cfm?pageid=42&itemid=560&more=1
This is just one of the many ways or routes that you can use to tie many of these scumbags together. Another can take a different route, and the same players show up. It's a private club of "VULTURES". You can tie them together in a hundred ways, this was just one of them. It only took me 10 minutes. We were played from the beginning !!!
You can use the above link to find all cast members of this historic trilogy in exhibits A and B. One thing that you will notice, some players were added on after the movie was made, they don't appear here. Vulture Ghosts, bought on the cheap and just showed up, and are now cast members. WTF...and Rosen has the balls to call us vultures? After my 3 long years here, I am cynical of everything. This case has made me look at America in a different light. The only decent thing left with the USA, is the common average citizen. They are not only the backbone of the US, but they are what is good about the US.
Don't even get me started with Jekyll Island and the Federal Reserve. If you understand what transpired in that small island a century ago, you will understand why JPM was bailed out, why they are left standing as the king.
I don't have the time to post during the day, as I attend to urgent matters. I saw some of your posts today Gov,,,and I got wound up. I owe it to F, Bet, Snuffy, Daniel, Oilman, Gib, Lawrence, Lars, Boris, Okie and the many others who have been here to help in any way...and of course to you Gov and your awesome wife. So, I will do what I can in the late evenings, while most of you are asleep.
"In July 1996, Mr. Killinger engineered the purchase of the 158-branch California-based American Savings Bank, a $1.4 billion deal that nearly doubled the size of Washington Mutual, instantly making it the third largest American savings and loan."
``Bob Bass and his group has been rumored to have been wanting to monetize their investment, and this looks like a good opportunity to them,'' Irving said.
Robert M. Bass and his investor group control Keystone Holdings Inc. the parent company of American Savings. After the acquisition, Keystone will be merged into Washington Mutual.
I am 99% sure this is what Hoffman is trying to get unsealed....the "valuation numbers" JPM used for "accounting purposes"....;)
I didn't get it either..
And just to be sure, take a look at the 15 pages of firms/offices/govt entities that this was delivered to: pages 12-27http://www.kccllc.net/documents/0812229/0812229110113000000000002.pdf
NO way do "they" want this unsealed, and no way jMW will release it, because it blows her "opinions" right out of the water...UNLESS, that's what she wants?
Back to the TFR reports I posted in the Boli Smoking Gun thread...look at JPM's 3rd QTR report, they book $14b capital contribution...can't link it now, if someone kept the link/copy
3rd QTR '08https://docs.google.com/...MC00ZDMwLWEyMGMtNTUyMmRjNTlhNDdh&hl=en
STraight from WMfsB or a combo from both banks?
Gov's on meth and I was born with a thyroid condition and three testicles.
Didn't you post a while back about how goodwill is treated?
