Bank worker Stephanie Bon and the £4000/hr Jesuit
What’s higher in the corrupt religiously-controlled banking
establishment than a Jew/Zionist?
The JESUIT Club!
Who was REALLY behind the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme?

Who’s this guy António Horta-Osório?
AND, ANOTHER Jesuit! AND ex Goldman Sachs: It’s a very small and tightly knit community we have here as you can see.
Horta-Osório started his career at CitiBank Portugal where he was head of Capital Markets, while simultaneously working as an assistant professor at Universidade Católica Portuguesa. He then worked for Goldman Sachs in New York and London, focusing on corporate finance in Portugal. In 1993, he joined Santander as chief executive of Banco Santander de Negocios Portugal.
He graduated in Management and Business Administration from the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, and has an MBA from French business school INSEAD – where he was awarded the Henry Ford II prize – and an AMP (Advanced Management Programme) from Harvard Business School. He is married with two daughters and one son.
The connections between INSEAD and the Jesuit Order (or “Society of Jesus”) are many. I’ll leave you to do your own research there however because to put every item of research onto these blogs would be immensely time consuming. Think of them as “pointers” from which you can choose whether to follow the path or not.
Further, the UCP was established by Jesuits:
The Catholic University of Portugal (better known in Portugal as UCP- Universidade Católica Portuguesa or just “a Católica”) was established in 1967 by decree of the Holy See (Lusitanorum Nobilissima Gens), at the request of the Portuguese Bishops’ conference and under Concordat Law.
Its first constituent Faculty was the Jesuit-owned and run Faculty of Philosophy of Braga (Northern Portugal). However, the University was soon extended to Lisbon where it opened, in 1968, the Faculty of Theology and, in 1971, the Faculty of Human Sciences.
Now, there’s an interesting little nugget of info about these Jesuit Private Universities which I found and it is this:
The oldest non-state-run university, the Universidade Católica Portuguesa – UCP (Catholic University of Portugal), a catholic private university (concordatory status) with branches in the cities of Lisbon, Porto, Braga, Viseu, and Caldas da Rainha, was founded before the others, in 1967, and officially recognized in 1971. UCP offers some well-recognized degrees and is reputed for economics, law and business management degrees it awards at its Lisbon branch. Other degrees awarded by UCP, like biotechnology and dental medicine, amassed increasing success and popularity since the 2000s. After the Carnation Revolution of 1974, in the 1980s and 1990s, a boom of educational private institutions was experienced in Portugal and many private universities started to open. Most private universities had a poor reputation and were known for making it easy for students to enter and also to get high grades. In 2007, several of those private universities or their heirs, were investigated and faced compulsory closing (for example, the infamous Independente University and Internacional University closings, and the Moderna University scandal) or official criticism with recommendations that the state-managed investigation proposed for improving their quality and avoid termination.
You see, it’s like the Etons and the Oxfords and Cambridge and London School of Economics, Yale, Harvard etc. Think about it: Do you believe George W Bush was an intellectual giant? Or even Bill Clinton the RHODES SCHOLAR? Or Tony Blair or Brown? Do you see high intelligence in David Cameron for goodness sakes?
No. They just so happen to have come from the right fallopian tubes in terms of lineage. Such people are put in the right schools. They leave and their lineage, family connections and the fact they even ATTENDED these schools is all they need.
Similarly Horto here. While, like Saif Ghaddafi at the LSE practically has his PhD written for him, these Universities make it easy for the right students. They have no greater gift or talent they simply have the connections. As the old adage goes: “It’s not what you know…”.
“I spent four years at CitiBank but I always wanted to deepen my academic background and learn more about business so I applied to INSEAD to do an MBA. For me, INSEAD was the only place to do an MBA for two reasons – its reputation and the quality of the students it attracts.”
Ain’t that the truth Antonio! All about “reputation” and “quality” of students NAMES!
Meanwhile, for the guy who’s getting paid over £13M a year to make Lloyds a “real winner” WHILE IT IS STATE BACKED BY THE WAY, here we have him selling off his shares he has just literally been given by the bank! So you tell me? Where’s his faith in himself?
António Horta-Osório, who took over as Lloyds chief executive at the start of March, on Thursday sold 175,166 shares in the bank, raising £102,910.
The shares represented just under half of those recently granted to him on joining the bank from Spanish bank Santander (Madrid:SAN.MC – news) , where he had run its UK operations until late last year.
Mr Horta-Osório’s share sale came a day after details of his £13.3m pay package were revealed in the latest Lloyds annual report.
So let’s get this right:
“Hey Antonio! You da man! You’re going to take this firm to its height and so we’re going to compensate you with a nice stockholding in the company! By the time you’ve finished, that stock is going to be worth a fortune! We have entire faith in you that you’re going to triple the sharevalue – after all, that’s what we’re paying you £4k an hour for!”
And Antonio trots down to his broker and sells the shares within moments of receiving them! You couldn’t make this shit up!
Taking the Santander gang along with him:
Antonio Horta-Osorio raids Santander again
Horta-Osorio joins a bank that’s been shrinking following a taxpayer-funded rescue. Lloyds has sold assets, among them its Bank of Scotland Integrated Finance investment unit and cut more than 22,000 jobs since its rescue. The bank still has to sell 600 branches by 2013 to comply with European Union state aid rules. In all, Lloyds plans to shrink its balance sheet by 200 billion pounds by 2014.
At Lloyds, Horta-Osorio will also face a government inquiry into competition among British lenders. The panel, led by John Vickers, may decide to recommend breaking up some of Britain’s banks. Lloyds has a 28 percent share of the mortgage lending market following its takeover of HBOS.
He will also have to cut the lender’s dependence on about 120 billion pounds of central bank funding and oversee the reduction of the government’s 41 percent stake in the lender, analysts said.
“We have appointed a very well-qualified person to this job,” Prime Minister David Cameron’s spokesman Steve Field told reporters in London. “It is in the taxpayer’s interest that the bank is run well,” he said.
“We will be able to turn around this bank into the next phase of its development and this will be good news for the taxpayers, the employees and ultimately the U.K. economy,” Horta-Osorio told reporters today.
