2. Banks do get involved in plots.
The Business Plot was a fascist conspiracy involving wealthy businessmen to overthrow Roosevelt in 1933.
Details came to light when General Smedley Butler testified before a Congressional committee that a group of men had attempted to recruit him to serve as the leader of a plot.
Butler testified before the McCormack-Dickstein Committee in 1934 .
The committee deleted extensive excerpts from the report relating to Wall Street financiers including J.P. Morgan & Co. (Business Plot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Today, JP Morgan Chase is part of the Rockefeller empire.

3. Why did one of the world's top banks, Royal Bank of Scotland, get into such deep trouble?
On 19 Jun 2008, the Royal Bank of Scotland advised clients 'to brace for a full-fledged crash in global stock and credit markets.' (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/alert.html)
4. But, were the right people in charge of Royal bank of Scotland?
Sir Fred Goodwin was chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) from 2001 to 2008.
His mother was of German Jewish heritage. (Fred Goodwin - Wikipedia)
After University, he joined accountants Touche Ross.
Reportedly, Touche Ross has had links to the CIA (Cached)
Goodwin, while working for Touche Ross, was chief operating officer of the worldwide liquidation of BCCI, Bank of Credit and Commerce International, in 1990.
The BCCI was called the CIA’s money-laundering facility. (Bank of Credit and Commerce International - Wikipedia.)
According to an article at Wikipedia:
"RBS has been involved in an increasing number of environmental and human rights controversies since Sir Fred Goodwin took the helm in 2001.
"RBS is heavily involved in financing large oil, gas and mining projects world-wide that environmental organizations like BankTrack, PLATFORM , Pacific Environment, The Cornerhouse, and Rainforest Action Network call 'dodgy deals' that they say severely damage the environment and local communities, and that contribute significantly to climate change.
"A profile by BankTrack tracks RBS financing of corporations involved in the production of uranium weapons, as well as the controversial Baku-T’blisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline transecting Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, the Sakhalin II oil and gas scheme in eastern Russia, the Freeport McMoRan mine in Indonesia, Sinopec oil and gas in Burma, the Dynegy coal fired power plant and mountaintop removal coal mining in the US." - Fred Goodwin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sir Fred Goodwin has been a regular visitor to his friend, UK prime minister Gordon Brown. "Goodwin is one of a small handful of City grandees that the Chancellor relies on to give him advice." (Profile: Sir Fred Goodwin - Telegraph)
Could Sir Fred have had links to the wrong sort of people?
