JPMorgan's Failed Twitter Campaign Is Just Hilarious

There are firms that get social media and then there are those firms that don't.

Count JPMorgan Chase (JPM) among the latter after its latest expedition onto Twitter backfired in the bank's face and provided hours of entertainment for folks weary of hearing about the firms seemingly endless regulatory failures and a possible criminal indictment.

The bank canceled the campaign after it became clear it had turned into a forum for venting frustration against the firm.

Here's what happened: Early Wednesday morning the bank posted a tweet saying it would host a Q&A session with its Vice Chairman Jimmy Lee on Thursday. Then the questions started pouring in, but they weren't what the bank had expected, no doubt.

Here is a sample of some of the responses to the campaign:

The campaign failed because Diamon is a Twit. Only Twits Tweet.

They should build a special prison for this clown, and people should pull their money out of the junk bank.

While Jamie makes my gorge rise, he still is nowhere as loathsome as Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, whose image causes my right leg to twitch in anticipation of putting my foot through the tube!

St. Jamie is simply a clone manufactured by the JPM Board of Directors where cash is synonymous with sanctity. Those who are accused of financial malfeasance in the pursuit of "sanctity" are canonized as saints in the Church of JPMorgan. This is Standard Operating Procedure among all Banksters. This is their "faith tradition".

The fact the banking criminals would even dare to do this shows just how out of touch they are with reality and with the public's perception of just how responsible they were for driving the U.S. into permanent economic depression. Baggers still love the bankers though, since it is banking criminals who fund the Bagger criminals like Scott Walker, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz Jr.

JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., (Chase) Is The Worst Criminal Enterprise In US History

Chase and its co-conspirators have been conspiring to engage and are engaging in a massive, multi-faceted criminal Ponzi Scheme that adversely affects millions of homeowners in California, Florida, Minnesota, and in practically all the other states and U.S. territories since 1999 or thereabouts. Their Ponzi Scheme clusters around the issuance of predatory mortgages, and fraudulent mortgage processing and securitization practices. Through the securitization process, these fraudsters were to establish an unbroken chain of title, and unification of the Promissory Note and Mortgage, in conformity with U.C.C. standards and the holding of the Supreme Court in Carpenter v. Longan, 83 U.S. 16 Wall. 271 271 (1872), Carpenter v. Longan 83 U.S. (16 Wall.) 271, that held, “The note and mortgage are inseparable; the former as essential, the latter as an incident. An assignment of the note carries the mortgage with it, while an assignment of the latter alone is a nullity.” However, their actions in the past 14 years or so have been violative of even the resemblance of propriety and in contravention to all other Federal and State Laws and Statutes, including the Constitution of the United States and the Supremacy Clause thereof. More egregiously, these unscrupulous bankers and their operatives have been conducting their multi-faceted criminal enterprise for more than 14 years with impunity and immunity from criminal prosecution. In my opinion, therefore, Jamie Dimon and his colleagues at Chase should all have been locked up in federal prison long time ago. However, these multi-millionaire accomplices are still on the loose perpetrating their endemic mortgage fraud, intrinsic mortgage fraud, securities fraud, and foreclosure fraud on millions of homeowners. Ladies and gentlemen, Justice Delayed is Justice Denied! And those who remain silent in these endemic crimes are participants therein.
