13-02-23 Spire Group sues banksters for $43T ($43,000,000,000,000.00)


"It is hard for me to believe as a 47-year lawyer that our nation's guardians have been unwilling to stop this theft."

NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Spire Law Group, LLP's national home owners' lawsuit, pending in the venue where the "Banksters" control their $43 trillion racketeering scheme (New York) - known as the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History and identifying $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) of laundered money by the "Banksters" and their U.S. racketeering partners and joint venturers - now pinpoints the identities of the key racketeering partners of the "Banksters" located in the highest offices of government and acting for their own self-interests.
In connection with the federal lawsuit now impending in the United States District Court in Brooklyn, New York (Case No. 12-cv-04269-JBW-RML) - involving, among other things, a request that the District Court enjoin all mortgage foreclosures by the Banksters nationwide, unless and until the entire $43 trillion is repaid to a court-appointed receiver - Plaintiffs now establish the location of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) of laundered money in a racketeering enterprise participated in by the following individuals (without limitation): Attorney General Holder acting in his individual capacity, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris (both acting in their individual capacities), Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Robert Rubin (former Treasury Secretary and Bankster), Timothy Geitner, Treasury Secretary (acting in his individual capacity), Vikram Pandit (recently resigned and disgraced Chairman of the Board of Citigroup), Valerie Jarrett (a Senior White House Advisor), Anita Dunn (a former "communications director" for the Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign), as well as the "Banksters" themselves, and their affiliates and conduits. The lawsuit alleges serial violations of the United States Patriot Act, the Policy of Embargo Against Iran and Countries Hostile to the Foreign Policy of the United States, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly known as the RICO statute) and other State and Federal laws.
In the District Court lawsuit, Spire Law Group, LLP -- on behalf of home owner across the Country and New York taxpayers, as well as under other taxpayer recompense laws -- has expanded its mass tort action into federal court in Brooklyn, New York, seeking to halt all foreclosures nationwide pending the return of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000.00) by the "Banksters" and their co-conspirators, seeking an audit of the Fed and audits of all the "bailout programs" by an independent receiver such as Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the TARP program who has stated that none of the TARP money and other "bailout money" advanced from the Treasury has ever been repaid despite protestations to the contrary by the Defendants as well as similar protestations by President Obama and the Obama Administration both publicly on national television and more privately to the United States Congress. Because the Obama Administration has failed to pursue any of the "Banksters" criminally, and indeed is actively borrowing monies for Mr. Obama's campaign from these same "Banksters" to finance its political aspirations, the national group of plaintiff home owners has been forced to now expand its lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and intentional violations of the Iranian Nations Sanctions and Embargo Act by the national banks included among the "Bankster" Defendants.
The complaint - which has now been fully served on thousands of the "Banksters and their Co-Conspirators" - makes it irrefutable that the epicenter of this laundering and racketeering enterprise has been and continues to be Wall Street and continues to involve the very "Banksters" located there who have repeatedly asked in the past to be "bailed out" and to be "bailed out" in the future.
The Havens for the money laundering schemes - and certain of the names and places of these entities - are located in such venues as Switzerland, the Isle of Man, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Cypress and entities controlled by governments adverse to the interests of the United States Sanctions and Embargo Act against Iran, and are also identified in both the United Nations and the U.S. Senate's recent reports on international money laundering. Many of these entities have already been personally served with summons and process of the complaint during the last six months. It is now beyond dispute that, while the Obama Administration was publicly encouraging loan modifications for home owners by "Banksters", it was privately ratifying the formation of these shell companies in violation of the United States Patriot Act, and State and Federal law. The case further alleges that through these obscure foreign companies, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan, Wells Fargo Bank, Citibank, Citigroup, One West Bank, and numerous other federally chartered banks stole trillions of dollars of home owners' and taxpayers' money during the last decade and then laundered it through offshore companies.
This District Court Complaint - maintained by Spire Law Group, LLP -- is the only lawsuit in the world listing as Defendants the Banksters, let alone serving all of such Banksters with legal process and therefore forcing them to finally answer the charges in court. Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission, nor the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, nor the Office of the Attorney General, nor any State Attorney General has sued the Banksters and thereby legally chased them worldwide to recover-back the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) and other lawful damages, injunctive relief and other legal remedies.
James N. Fiedler, Managing Partner of Spire Law Group, LLP, stated: "It is hard for me to believe as a 47-year lawyer that our nation's guardians have been unwilling to stop this theft. Spire Law Group, LLP stands for the elimination of corruption and implementation of lawful strategies, and that is what we're doing here. Spire Law Group, LLP's charter is to not allow such corruption to go unanswered."
Comments were requested from the Attorney Generals' offices in NY, CA, NV, NH , OH, MA and the White House, but no comment was provided.

13-02-23 Torture at Gitmo: Lt. Col. Couch on His Refusal to Prosecute Abused Prisoner

Occupy America 

Posted: 22 Feb 2013 06:35 PM PST
On Sept. 11, 2001, Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Couch’s friend died co-piloting the second plane to hit the World Trade Center. Soon after, Couch became one of the first military prosecutors assigned to the U.S. military base at Guantánamo Bay to prosecute men alleged to have carried out the terrorist plot. Couch talked to Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales of Democracy Now! about the experience.
Stuart Couch recalls his first trip to Guantánamo, and what he found.
"I was waiting to watch the interrogation of one of the detainees who had been assigned to me to prosecute his case. This was a detainee that was particularly cooperative and involved in some very serious activities in the Gulf region. As I was waiting in a room next to his interrogation room, I heard some loud heavy metal rock music playing down the—down the hallway. I went down to investigate. I thought it was a couple of guards that were off duty and didn’t realize that we were getting ready to conduct the interview. So I walked down the hallway, and as I reached the room where the source of the music was coming out, the door was cracked. And I looked into the room, and I could—all I could see was a strobe light flashing. The rest of the lights in the room were out, but from the flashes of the strobe light, I could see a detainee in orange sitting on the—seated on the floor and shackled, hand to feet, and rocking back and forth."
"There were two civilians who asked me, you know, what was I doing. And I said, "I’m Lieutenant Colonel Couch. You need to turn that down. What’s going on here?" And they just basically told me to move along, and shut the door in my face. There was a judge advocate reservist with me, and I said, "Did you see that?" And his immediate response: "Well, yes. That’s approved." And so, that was my first inclination that there was—of evidence of coerced interrogations going on at Guantánamo."
Couch ultimately would refuse to prosecute the detainee, Mohamedou Ould Slahi.

13-02-13 FATCA: The US appears to fail in its efforts to enforce its corrupt banking regulation on banks worldwide

A prime example of the US acting as a delinquent juvenile in international banking matters. The US positions China as the only responsible adult on the scene. jz


James George Jatras for

February 22, 2013
Washington, DC

As noted earlier, FATCA (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) is unenforceable and unviable unless virtually all countries in the world – or at least all the major financial centers – sign on.   That is looking less and less likely, spelling big trouble for a law that one of America’s top tax lawyers has correctly described as “sheer idiocy.”

No China, no FATCA

No scheme of global financial reporting can possibly succeed without China.   As noted by Nigel Green, CEO of deVere Group regarding China and Hong Kong:

FATCA could, ultimately, unravel if China rejects the IGA because FATCA’s primary strength would come from all governments around the world forcing their financial institutions to become compliant with it.

Should the country which looks set to be the world’s dominant economic super power in a matter of decades rebuff FATCA, the project would be compromised and could, in the end, fail as such a stance would, many experts agree, prompt other countries to do the same. 

[ . . . ]

It’s currently unclear but there are signs that Hong Kong could indeed act independently from Beijing’s stance as there has been no reference to Hong Kong, a special administrative region (SAR), in any of the published material we’ve seen on the matter.

Additionally, James Jatras, of the Repeal FATCA campaign, informs us that, interestingly, like the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong is not on the list of 50 countries the Treasury claims to be negotiating with.  [“Could China Kill FATCA?,” Feb. 22, 2013]

Germany “in no hurry”?

While China’s compliance with FATCA always has been problematic, one country the U.S. has counted as a “given” from the outset is Germany.  Among the first five countries to indicate a willingness to sign an IGA, Berlin was supposed to have been wrapped up by the end of 2012.  While efforts to finalize a U.S.-Germany IGA will press forward hard in 2013, they could be tripped up by Berlin’s insistence that information exchange be a two-way street (“Germany in no hurry to sign its Fatca IGA, expert says,” Feb. 22, 2013).

The problem of reciprocity has raised itself with the report that the U.S. Treasury Department plans to ask Congress – much earlier than expected – for new legislative authority to move closer to “full reciprocity” than currently exists in the Model 1 IGA.   It’s speculated that this is because one or more countries has told Washington they will not sign until they get a more balanced exchange of information.   Legislative approval ofadditional authority for information exchange is unlikely in light of Congressional and industry objections to even the limited bank interest reporting already provided for under the “Model 1” version of the IGA.  

In short, not just Germany but any government that insists on mutual respect and cooperation from the U.S. side is unlikely to get it. 

Time for an alternative to FATCA

As Congress begins to wake up to the inadvertent mess this misguided and insufficiently thought-out law stands to cause, FATCA’s prospects are dimming every day.  Incredibly, even as the unraveling of FATCA begins to accelerate, some countries remain convinced (in large part due to a poor understanding of the U.S. political system) that capitulation to FATCA by signing an IGA in one form or another is the only recourse – but “there must be no diminution of the countries’ sovereign rights.”   This, of course, is a contradiction in terms, since FATCA inherently is a flat-out surrender of sovereignty to Washington’s diktat.   Moreover, the IGAs don’t even provide any significant degree of protection for firms facing crushing compliance costs.

Instead of cooperating with the Treasury Department’s efforts to rope them into the FATCA corral, financial firms and foreign governments need to move with the political winds in Washington – and get behind the campaign to repeal “the worst law most Americans have never heard of.”  

As efforts to repeal FATCA begin to pick up steam, it’s time to start thinking about alternatives to what is aptly called by some the “Fear And Total Confusion Act.”

Judges Were Illegally Wiretapped, Says Insider

Not only were attorneys targeted for 24/7 wiretapping of their personal and
business phones, but judges in New York also became victims of the illegal
whims of political insiders, according to a former insider who says he
supervised parts of the operation for years.

It was previously reported that evidence was obtained on January 24, 2013
confirming illegal actions against New York attorneys, including the
continuous and illegal wiretapping of their phones and the complete capture
and copying of all internet ISP activity, including email. CLICK HERE TO SEE
BACKGROUND STORY "Former Insider Admits to Illegal Wiretaps for "Ethics

The Manhattan-based attorney ethics committee, the Departmental Disciplinary
Committee (the "DDC"), a state-run entity that oversees the "ethics" of
those who practice law in The Bronx and Manhattan, has been identified of
utilizing the illegal activity- at will, and by whim- to either target or
protect certain attorneys.

One Manhattan supervising ethics attorney, Naomi Goldstein, was identified
as a regular requestor of the illegal tape recordings, and former chief
counsel Thomas Cahill has been described in interviews as being "very
involved" to those who were conducting the illegal activity. Cahill
subsequently retired, however New York State-paid attorney Naomi Goldstein
still supervises "ethics" investigations from her Wall Street DDC 2nd floor
office at 61 Broadway.


According to the source, one New York "ethics" legend, Alan Friedberg, was
"very well known" to those conducting the illegal wiretapping activity.
Friedberg, who has become the poster child for unethical tactics while
conducting "ethics" inquiries, appears to have been present in the various
state offices where illegal wiretaps were utilized. Friedberg worked for the
New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct (the "CJC") before running the
Manhattan attorney "ethics" committee as chief counsel for a few years.
Friedberg then resurfaced at the CJC, where he remains today. The CJC
investigates ethics complaints of all judges in New York State.

Judges Deserve Justice Too, Unless Political Hacks Decide Otherwise

While court administrators have effectively disgraced most judges with
substandard compensation, it appears that at least the selective enforcement
of "ethics" rules, dirty tricks and retaliation were equally employed on
lawyers and judges alike.

According to the insider, targeted judges had their cellphones, homes and
court phones wiretapped- all without required court orders. In addition,
according to the source, certain courtrooms, chambers and robing rooms were
illegally bugged.

A quick review of notes from over one million pages of evidence, according
to the insider, reveals that the "black bag jobs" included: NYS Supreme
Court Judge, the Hon. Alice Schlesinger (Manhattan), Criminal Court Judge,
the Hon. Shari R. Michels (Brooklyn) and NYS Supreme Court Judge, the
Bernadette Bayne (Brooklyn).

Fourth Article in the Series "NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Asked to Shut Down
Judicial "Ethics" Office"

"New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has been formally requested to
immediately shut down the offices of The Commission on Judicial Conduct (the
"CJC"), the state agency charged with overseeing the ethics of all judges in
the Empire State. The request comes from a public integrity group after
confirmation that the CJC has been involved in illegally wiretapping and
other illegal "black bag operations" for years.

Governor Cuomo is asked to send New York State Troopers to close and secure
the state's three judicial ethics offices: the main office on the 12th floor
at 61 Broadway in Manhattan, the capital office in Albany at the Corning
Tower in the Empire State Plaza, and the northwest regional office at 400
Andrews Street in Rochester.

The Governor is asked to telephone the Assistant United States Attorney who
is overseeing the millions of items of evidence, most of which that has been
secreted from the public- and the governor- by a federal court order.

Governor Cuomo was provided with the direct telephone number of the involved
federal prosecutor, and simply requested to confirm that evidence exists
that certain state employees in New York's so-called judicial "ethics"
committee illegally wiretapped state judges.

The request to the governor will be posted at later
today. (Media inquiries can be made to 202-374-3680.)

An Interrogation Center at Yale?

Proposed Pentagon Special Ops Training Facility at Yale School of Medicine Sparks Protests

We turn now to a controversy brewing at Yale University over a proposed center that would use immigrants from the surrounding community to train special operations forces in interview techniques. The center would be funded by a $1.8 million grant from the Department of Defense and could open as early as April. It would be housed at the Yale School of Medicine and led by Charles Morgan, a professor of psychiatry who previously conducted research on how to tell whether Arab Muslim men are lying. Morgan declined our request for an interview, but in January he spoke withThe Yale Herald . He told the paper he hopes to convince the Green Berets—some of them just back from the front lines in Afghanistan—to use noncoercive conversation methods in order to gather intelligence more effectively. 

13-02-23 Los Angeles: Widespread corruption of the courts and the "free press"

From a discussion group:

me (Joseph Zernik, Human Rights Alert (NGO) change
Post reply
10:41 AM (2 minutes ago)
Comments are regarding the suggestion of "free press" in legal matters in Los Angeles.

From my personal communications with Los Angeles Daily Journal, Met News, and Los Angeles Times reporters, I would be hard pressed to even suggest that there is "free press" in Los Angeles, when it comes to the courts in general, and in reporting wrongdoing by the courts in particular.

LA Times:
It should be noted that the LA Times went through a major transition in this matter over the past decade. 
Review of the reporting of the Los Angeles Times during the First Rampart Scandal (2000-2001), showed honest reporting, and extensive criticism of the conduct of California Judge (retired since) Jacqueline Connor.  She appeared as the presiding judge in the First Rampart Trial.  The Los Angeles Times did not hesitate to point out the deep conflicts of interest in the conduct of Jacqueline Connor in this case - she was trying to cover up framing, false prosecutions, false convictions of a staggering number of people, where she had been a key player.  
The Los Angeles Times then even interviewed the Presiding Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court and directly and repeatedly asked about such conflicts.
Moreover, Jacqueline Connor was known in previous years as especially close to the corrupt LAPD undercover narcotic officers, who were at the center of the scandal.  Two years prior to the trial, she provided an excellent recommendation letter to Rafael Perez, specifically referring to his performance as a witness on the stand in her court.  He later confessed, as part of a plea bargain that such testimonies were fabricated fraud.
Judge Connor also went ahead a couple of months prior to the trial, and from a public stage warned Perez NOT to enter a plea bargain, and warned him never to appear again in her courtroom.  Later on, the Perez, the key witness, indeed failed to appear in the trial.  Connor also made several rulings early on to limit discovery by the prosecution from LAPD (who was holding the evidence in this case).
At the end, when the jury nevertheless convicted three of the LAPD officers, Connor issued from home, Friday night before Christmas, a ruling that overturned the jury convictions. She claimed that she biased the jury in her own faulty jury instructions.  Her ruling also explicitly mocked those who "try to fix the Rampart".
All of these issues were covered in detail in the Los Angeles Time, and the reader could easily conclude that it was an honest trial.

In less than a decade, things changed dramatically, as seen in the case of Richard Fine (2009-2010).  Here the Los Angeles Times was already acting as an arm of the LASC.  Los Angeles Time reporter Victoria Kim managed to "sneak" into the Los Angeles Central Men's Jail, reach Richard Fine, who was held under solitary confinement and under prohibition by the Sheriff of any media contacts.  
Based on her reporting, the reader could easily conclude that Richard Fine was an eccentric at best, possibly somewhat insane.

Los Angeles Daily Journal
Should be considered an arm of the courts for at least a quarter century.  The paper is the whole owner of Sustain Corporation, which developed, implemented, and maintains the fraudulent case management system of the Los Angeles Superior Court.  Therefore, the paper relies on a long term contracts with the LASC, on which it is supposed to report.
The Daily Journal also refuses to disclose who is it controlled by.

Metropolitan News
In my experience, at least some reporters of the Met News are fully familiar with the level of corruption in the LASC.
However, given the position of the paper, relative to the two other enterprises, listed above, the Met News practices strict self-censorship.

To All:

Gene Forte has been taking on the Powers That Be and fighting the good fight for a number of years.  First, he had and was website and radio show, then second he ran for governor in the special recall election of Grey Davis on a campaign to fight government corruption and unaccountablity, and next was/is The Bager Flats Gazette.

Recently, in a sham trial in a kangaroo court he was found mentally incompetent to aid in his defense, which was the pretext to allow the Merced County DA a way out of the bogus fabricated three (3) charges/cases filed against Forte.  Forte has the DA on tape stating first, that he had a conflict of interest regarding Forte (they were opposing parties in a civil case involving underground gas station fuel tanks with allegations of fraud concerning a large clean up fund) that prevented him from even investigation the charges, much less filing any charges, and thus he would have to send the case(s) to "Jerry" (then Cal AG Jerry Brown, now Cal Guv Jerry Brown) for filing by his office or assignment to another county DA.  Before the ink was dry, Brown's AG office sent the cases back without doing anything.  The Merced DA then ignored the conflct(s), his oath, his professional duties/rules, the law, Forte's constitutional right, and blindly went forward and filed the charges against Forte.  Forte then has the DA on tape saying, Gene if you promise not to sue us, I can make those charges go away.  Another big conflict that would require dismissal of the charges.

Forte was in forma paupris and was qualified for indigent status.  He had six (6) conflict/public defender attorneys furnished by the county.  Not one brought a motion to dismiss based on gross prosecutorial misconduct - although several said that they were outraged by the DA's conflict(s) and his going forward to file the charges, and said they would prepare and file the motion to dismiss.  Two of his attorneys are on tape stating they were being intimidated by the DA's office regarding the case.  Those two, and others abandoned Forte without filing proper papers/declarations re withdrawal. 

Forte's last attorney, the acting head Public Defender of Merced County - the one that moved to have him declared mentally incompetent to aid in his defense - a couple of weeks after he became Forte's attorney, told Forte he may have a problem, a possible conflict of interests, as he played on the same softball team as the court bailiff/deputy, who arrested Forte in the first two charges/cases.  That attorney then ignored that problem/conflict and did nothing about it.  Early on Forte asked that attorney to make the motion to dismiss the charges/cases based on gross prosecutorial misconduct - and also requested a second ground of gross judicial misconduct.  That attorney never brought the motion to dismiss, but again instead moved to have Forte declared mentally incompetent to aid in his defense.  That was granted.  That attorney then moved to dismiss the charges/cases against Forte on that ground, and that attorney (Forte's own attorney) then requested the court impose costs on Forte for delaying and pushing frivolous defenses.  Forte was ordered to pay the county over $9,000.00.

Clearly, the Merced County DA Morse and his office, the trial judge (ret.) James Cadle and the acting Merced PD Eric Dumars (as well as Forte's other purported attorneys and several other officials of both the City and County of Merced)  - acted in concert to ignored and abridge any semblance of Forte's constitutional rights (the Rule of Law simply ceased to exist) to frame Forte and brand him crazy to make Forte's exposure of corruption and the false charges against him - go away.  And it was rubber stamped by an appellate court.

On the Friday before the following Monday trial on Forte's "trial" re his being mentally incompetent to aid in his defense, Forte filed an emergency Writ to Stay that "trial" at about 4:30 p.m.  (It took him about 1.5 hrs to drive to/from the 5th App. District.).  When he got home that afternoon, there was a 5:06 p.m. phone message from the 5th App. District clerk stating the Writ had been denied.  That same afternoon that same 5th App. District mailed (without proof of service) Forte a Notice setting a hearing 1/13/13 why he should not be found a Vexatious Litigant.  (That Notice violated due process in several ways:  no proof of service, lack of timely notice for setting hearing date per CCP 1005, lack of substantive notice re basis of grounds/facts being moved on.)

Forte prepared objections and opposition to the Vexatious litigant charge.  I have heard the tape of the hearing.  Forte acquitted himself well there, provided several irrefutable arguments and asked several good questions that the justices could not answer or ignored.  For example, Forte brought up that one of the justices on the panel had a conflict of interest - that justice himself ruled on determined he did not have a conflict (the 2 others sat silent) and that several of the matters at issue were case file in the 6th App. District, yet had been assigned to the 5th App. Disrtict - which Forte was before.  Clearly, at a minimum irregular proceedings - yet the justice when asked how and why that happened - had no answer (the 2 others on the panel sat silent).

See in the below e-mail of an article reporting the 5th App, District has court found Forte a vexatious litigant.  Note the metnews never called Forte and probably will not and would refuse to do any investigation of what actually occurred.  Thus this "article" gives cover to the corrupt government (prosecutor, judge, public defender & appellate court), sends a message to others, all while being totally derelict to its fundamental duty to report the news, by watching power, investigating power, reporting on power and holding power accountable.  This is what the media/press has fallen to.

We may have a so-called "Free" press - but it certainly is not a responsible press.  So much for the Fourth Estate.

The rights of another American citizen are taken away without basis by a corrupt government.  And government get bigger and we get smaller.  The Police State marches on.

There is no one left to blame - but the judges/judiciary.

Liberty & Truth require constant vigilance.  G.
