Wikileaks cable over onze zogenaamde socialistische partij, met Marijnissen en Van Bommel in gesprek met Ameriquest-crimineel Roland Arnall, een half jaar voor TK-verkiezingen 2006:
"Van Bommel similarly pointed out that when he speaks to party members these days, he stresses that the SP is now more of a Social Democrat party than a Socialist one. Based on his multiple trips to the U.S. — where he worked briefly as a teacher and traveled extensively by motorcycle — van Bommel said he appreciated shared U.S.-Dutch values and could not imagine a Dutch government abandoning the transatlantic relationship."
"Asked about Dutch participation in the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), van Bommel said he thought the initial Dutch decision to become involved was a mistake at the time — and it still is. That said, SP’s interest in foreign policy would always take a back seat to bread-and-butter domestic issues such as workers’ rights and compensations."
De SP belazert de kluit en heeft twee gezichten.
Harry's Amerikaanse contact met wie hij op de foto staat is:
Roland Arnall was the billionaire owner of ACC Capital Holdings, the parent company of Ameriquest, which was once one of the United States's largest sub-prime mortgage lenders. By the end of 2005 two of Arnall's companies, Ameriquest and Argent, had funded almost $ 75 billion in subprime loans. A major factor of this development was Arnall's origination of the stated income loan, meaning loans were given without verification of income. In early 2006, the company announced a $325 million settlement with state attorneys general and law enforcement agencies and financial regulators in 49 states and the District of Columbia who had accused Ameriquest of misrepresenting and failing to disclose loan terms, charging excessive loan origination fees and inflating appraisals to qualify borrowers for loans.
In 2007 Arnall got out of the mortgage business having sold most of it to Citigroup for an undisclosed amount.
In the 2003-2005 period, Arnall and his wife raised more than $12 million for George W. Bush's political efforts, including $5 million for theProgress for America Voter Fund, a self-proclaimed "conservative issue advocacy organization dedicated to keeping the issue record straight." In 2004 he was one of the top 10 donors to the Republican Party.
