Definitely a FEMA camp potential resident…

A series of investigative reports by WND senior staff writer Jerome Corsi on money-laundering charges by banking giant HSBC has resulted in some shocking fallout for the news agency and the reporter.
Yesterday WND reported that HSBC lodged a complaint that blocked Internet access to one of the WND stories.
Now, Corsi says the HSBC series has prompted the New York City securities firm with which he has worked to fire him.
Along with his well-known WND reporting and book-writing, Corsi has served as a senior managing director since 2010 at Gilford Securities, a Manhattan investment firm that serves institutional and retail clients.
Corsi said Gilford notified him Monday that it would file a U-5 form with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA, to deregister him from the firm due to “corporate reorganization.”
Gilford Securities declined comment to WND.
Corsi said the firm is responding to his series of reports on the charges of former HSBC manager John Cruz. The whistleblower has provided WND with 1,000 pages of customer account records he claims are evidence of an international money-laundering scheme by HSBC, which reportedly is under investigation by a U.S. Senate committee.
“I was completely blindsided by the reaction of the firm to the HSBC stories,” Corsi said. “I thought Gilford would be proud that a member of the firm had sufficient courage to do the right thing – make public and report suspected money laundering activity when first hearing about or learning about credible allegations, regardless what firm the allegations involved.”
