Quote: “Step back, though, and think on the institutional conclusions here. Considering how ludicrous the FBI’s conclusions are as it relates to an attack on the third ranking member of the House of Representatives, you might reconsider whether to trust the FBI’s conclusions in other areas, as well.”

Common Sense Commentary: Since its inception, CS has been saying that to determine the character and nature of a religion, all one needs do is to look at the nature and character of its founder. That is the difference between Christianity and Islam and why Islam will always be a legitimately violent religion. Michael Brown expands on this idea here.

Quote: “Beijing will continue to build up its naval strength in the years to come, but it will continue to lag the U.S. Navy’s force projection capabilities for decades to come….Eventually, China is expected to possess a six-ship carrier fleet, allowing its navy to have four in operation at a time, which would give it a capability second only to that of the U.S. Navy.”

Money: How Wells Fargo Cutthroat Corporate Culture (Allegedly) Drove Bankers To Fraud, Bethany McLean, Vanity Fair

CS Commentary: CS put the word ‘allegedly’ in the original title in parenthesis because we used to work at Wells Fargo many years ago. There is no ‘allegedly’ about this title or article. Wells Fargo was the most amoral, upside-down, insane corporate culture we have ever witnessed in our work history (and we’ve witnessed a few). The reader can rest assured that any of the executives or middle managers mentioned in this article who were sued, fined or fired, completely deserved it. It remains to be seen whether the bank or the culture has truly been reformed. While we were there the employees who advanced their careers were the a-morals without a conscience who were willing to commit fraud and screw customers to please the bosses and get ahead. Rest assured that at least some of the middle management at Wells Fargo today is made up of these people. During the 1990’s and 2000’s, at least, Wells Fargo culture was a reflection of the “Greed is good” ethos of Michael Douglas’s Gordon Gekko, of “Wall Street” fame. With its recent $185 million Federal fine, the bank got off much easier than it should have.
