The bank just deleted their Twitter account. So much for transparency from a bank that is now 100-percent backed by taxpayers.
2/15/23 Sacramento Bee: Where is Gavin Newsom? Don’t try checking his schedule, because chances are you won’t find one. From the article: "Biden’s schedule is sent to the media daily. Just like the schedules of members of Congress and lots of other governors. But not Gov. Gavin Newsom. Now try figuring out what Newsom is doing. Or was doing. Or will do. The last schedule listing on his “media advisory” website was January 31. He visited Washington for at least two days last week, but never disclosed his whereabouts in advance.
He did not attend most of the Governors' Winter meeting public events. Newsom was absent at the Democratic governors’ news conference Thursday, the governors’ meeting with Biden Friday, the forums during the day Saturday and the formal White House dinner Saturday night. There was no notice in advance of exactly what he was doing in Washington.
Newsom was in D.C. Wednesday. On Thursday, his staff announced that the previous day, the governor “started his day in Washington, D.C. meeting with senior Biden administration officials on a host of issues important to California.
At some point Wednesday, Newsom visited former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco; Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-San Bernardino, the new House Democratic Caucus chairman; Rep. Robert Garcia, D-Long Beach and House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries.
It’s not known what Newsom was doing Thursday. It’s not known what Newsom was doing Thursday."
In short, Newsom did not announce a Wednesday schedule. Or a Thursday schedule. Or any schedule while in DC during the Governors' meeting. And did not attend any meetings with the Association.
Perhaps Newsom was more interesting in advising the President and House representatives that SVB was about to implode and needed a federal bailout ASAP. Newsom, like many other wealthy Californians owns California real estate, wineries, restaurants and other businesses that had massive deposits in SVB. Too big to fail? Not really. Losses for larger depositors may not have caused much contagion. Nevertheless, Feds came to the rescue of thousands of millionaires and billionaires. Who better to lead the charge for a bailout than a rich governor who is completed disconnected from the people he serves.

https://rumble.com/v2dn6ag-shadow-banking-whistleblower-they-have-the-names-w-mike-gill.html Mike Gill giving so much more information to the enormous corruption by our government run by the banking cartel, run by the drug and human trafficking cartels. Wow, it all makes so much sense. We need to get rid of so many people running this country. It is beyond belief.
Great reporting--following the money reveals so much! Today's politicians have perfected the "grift" and big corporations (including banks) are pro's too.
Have you seen the new Claremont Institute database that tracks corporate donations to BLM (and the multitude of spin-offs)? The amounts are staggering.

Thank you, Adam Andrzejewski, for being a voice to power, and for being a never-ending warrior for truth.
In 2017, SVB gave Eric Garcetti $10K in "behested" payment. According to the L.A. City Ethics' site, it's still available. One can search the database for donors, as well as recipients. https://ethics.lacity.org/
Personally, I'm convinced that we're in the "gimme all your money" stage of the "plandemic" and funneling as much money from us as possible, is happening with banks. It's also how the Dems and RINOs (globalists) appear to be ushering in CBDC.
The connections are clear and well stated. But I am curious as to what link you see between Newsom and the bank’s failure? Without a doubt he should have mentioned his entanglements when lobbying the Biden Administration, but even without entanglements wouldn’t it have been prudent for the CA Governor to lobby given the potential impact the banks collapse would have on the state’s economy?
To me this seems like a message being send out that this is what may happen to banks in the near future. It is preparing people to what can happen to their money in banks
So they were interested in bringing in new people with "fresh ideas and perspectives" rather than bringing their clients/investors a decent return on their investment. Is that how banks are supposed to operate? Make sure you have so many trannies, gays, blacks, whites, Native Americans, Latinos, illegals, people with AIDS, etc. on your board rather than competent businessmen?
Nobody at the top can come down on the criminals because everyone at the top are criminals.
Once upon a time MAD magazine published a spoof on "Mandrake the Magician." It went like this: Mandrake and his assistant are driving when his tire blows out. He doesn't know what to do. His assistant says, "Can't you just gesture magically and fix the tire?" And Mandrake replies, "I can hypnotize you into thinking that the tire is fixed, and I can even hypnotize myself into thinking that the tire is fixed, but how do I hypnotize the tire into thinking that it is fixed?"
See? That is what the Dems do: They hypnotize people into thinking that they are great while just the opposite is true. Gruesome pushes his "feel good" agenda where patriotism, education, initiative, experience, competence and especially RESULTS don't matter, but skin color, sex (real or pretend), and lack of morals does. Do you know why dirt doesn't stick to this creepy governor? Its because his palms have been greased so well that everything just slides right off!
Oooh, GREAT catch! MORE people should know about this, it is a very big story!!
This is really sad to see. Governments helped put together this bank which then failed and got helped out by the government. I get that some people say this is just what governments do but as someone who is not American, I can see some places where it doesn't. Particularly in banks but we don't have as many options for what banks do in our country. It's still a potential problem but Canada did better in 2008 than other countries.
Adam, good to see you guys on substack. Hope you can figure out a way to give premium access to those of us who donate annually. Thanks.
Excellent article. Once again, the people lose and thieves get away with thieving.
If we got rid of all the self-serving liars, thieves and sell outs in the state and federal public sector, we couldn't field a quorum!
Newsom and wife have cronyism, corruption, and political dirty ways down to a science. They both reek of smug elitism while conning the state of CA. 🤬🤬🤬
Bankman-Fried, and the Silicon Valley woke bank have one thing in common: Biden's donor base. Leftist ideologues are thieves just like Biden so Biden protects all his criminal woke donors who got rich like he did -- while ignoring the toxic Ohio train debacle conservative voters in flyover country.
