SCENARIO OF NATIONAL BANKRUPTCY

5 Comments

Author: OldReb

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Doom and gloom are appearing with increased frequency in U.S. and global financial writings but specific details of a potential economic catastrophe are never given. Let us speculate on what could happen in the United States.

Is a view into an economic catastrophe available ?

ANSWER: Sure, that is easy. Read what has happened to Greece and Argentina. William Blum, John Perkins, and Chossudovsky give many more examples. Bank deposits have been seized; pensions have been wiped out; jobs have been terminated; real estate and assets are selectively confiscated; the economy crashes; national assets are sold at fire-sale prices to financiers; financiers must approve every government action; etc. The same New York City parties, and their proxies, are repeatedly involved.

How might it be handled in the U.S. ?

ANSWER: The Federal Reserve Bank of New York City will handle it. They have exclusive handling of funds to redeem Treasury securities—as a fiscal agent for the government. They will select who gets funds which the government has available. Ref. 31 CFR 375.3.

Who will benefit from the crash?

ANSWER: Primary Dealers currently receive >$10 trillion annually for redeeming Treasury securities. Some of them were involved in creating the Federal Reserve. The concept that they hold ownership of the Board of Governors, in a closely held corporation that does not have to file with the SEC, should not be overlooked. Furtive acts abound in the creation of the Fed. Their derivatives creations have obtained super-priority status in bankruptcy. More

Tennessee To Arrest Attorney Connie Reguli for Advocating for Client’s Rights

Attorney Connie Reguli of Brentwood, Tennessee, is known for being an outspoken warrior who fights legally on behalf of families who are dealing with Child Protective Services. Now, she is being arrested after trying to help a parent secure due process.

On the morning of Tuesday, July 16, 2019, Connie Reguli received a phone call notifying her that there is a warrant out for her arrest.

She will be turning herself in to the Brentwood Police Department on Wednesday morning.

Connie has never been arrested before. The founder of the Family Forward Project has no criminal history, nor have there been any allegations of criminal activity. Yet, for doing her job as an attorney to have the voice of her client, a parent, be heard, she is being criminally charged.

Retaliation like this, Connie says, is the reason that families often cannot get legal help when their children are taken from them. Attorneys who fight for clients’ Constitution rights such as due process and who fight against corruption are often threatened or bullied into backing down.

This makes it difficult for parents whose children are taken by Child Protective Services, no matter how unjustly. Many attorneys are simply scared.

More often than not, the allegations against parents are baseless and end up being unsubstantiated. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services “Child Maltreatment” Report, only 17% of allegations against parents are substantiated. (See link.)

The charges against Connie Reguli are facilitation of custodial interference and accessory after the fact of custodial interference in the case of a client she represented. The client is also facing charges of custodial interference.

The client’s children were seized by the Tennessee Department of Children and Families (DCF) based on an “ex parte order.” That is, the order was brought before a judge and signed by a judge without notifying the mother or her attorney.

As the mother’s attorney, Connie Reguli asked for her client to have due process and get a court date where she could be heard after the children were seized on the basis of an ex parte order.

Ex parte orders are supposed to be reserved for times when there is an emergency situation, one in which there is risk of irreparable harm if parties have to wait for a court hearing. All too often, however, they are the normal practice in Child Protective Services cases.

In the case in question, there was never any evidence of the allegations against the mother, and the petition against her was ultimately dismissed. However, DCF took her children away from her, put them in several different foster homes, and subjected the children to almost a year of trauma before the case was dismissed and the children returned home.

Action Sparks

Connie will be turning herself in around 11 am. She anticipates being released on her own recognizance.

Anyone who would like to support Connie Reguli is invited to come to the Brentwood Police Department, 5211 Maryland Way # 1000, Brentwood, TN 37027, at 10:30 am on Wednesday, July 17.

Calls may be made on Connie’s behalf to the Williamson County District Attorney Kim R. Helper at (615) 794-7275. She is also on Facebook.

Real News Spark will be in Tennessee covering the story live from our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/RealNewsSpark/.

‘We the Prisoners’: The Demise of the Fourth Amendment

Leave a comment

speak truth

By John W. Whitehead

June 28, 2016

“Our carceral state banishes American citizens to a gray wasteland far beyond the promises and protections the government grants its other citizens… When the doors finally close and one finds oneself facing banishment to the carceral state—the years, the walls, the rules, the guards, the inmates—reactions vary. Some experience an intense sickening feeling. Others, a strong desire to sleep. Visions of suicide. A deep shame. A rage directed toward guards and other inmates. Utter disbelief. The incarcerated attempt to hold on to family and old social ties through phone calls and visitations. At first, friends and family do their best to keep up. But phone calls to prison are expensive, and many prisons are located far from one’s hometown… As the visits and phone calls diminish, the incarcerated begins to adjust to the fact that he or she is, indeed, a prisoner. New social ties are cultivated. New rules must be understood.”—Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Atlantic

In a carceral state—a.k.a. a prison state or a police state—there is no Fourth Amendment to protect you from the overreaches, abuses, searches and probing eyes of government overlords.

In a carceral state, there is no difference between the treatment meted out to a law-abiding citizen and a convicted felon: both are equally suspect and treated as criminals, without any of the special rights and privileges reserved for the governing elite.

In a carceral state, there are only two kinds of people: the prisoners and the prison guards.

With every new law enacted by federal and state legislatures, every new ruling handed down by government courts, and every new military weapon, invasive tactic and egregious protocol employed by government agents, “we the people”—the prisoners of the American police state—are being pushed that much further into a corner, our backs against the prison wall.

This concept of a carceral state in which we possess no rights except for that which the government grants on an as-needed basis is the only way I can begin to comprehend, let alone articulate, the irrational, surreal, topsy-turvy, through-the-looking-glass state of affairs that is being imposed upon us in America today.

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we who pretend we are free are no different from those who spend their lives behind bars.

Indeed, we are experiencing much the same phenomenon that journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates ascribes to those who are banished to a “gray wasteland far beyond the promises and protections the government grants its other citizens” : a sickening feeling, a desire to sleep, hopelessness, shame, rage, disbelief, clinginess to the past and that which is familiar, and then eventually resignation and acceptance of our new “normal.”

All that we are experiencing—the sense of dread at what is coming down the pike, the desperation, the apathy about government corruption, the deeply divided partisanship, the carnivalesque political spectacles, the public displays of violence, the nostalgia for the past—are part of the dying refrain of an America that is fading fast.

No longer must the government obey the law.

Likewise, “we the people” are no longer shielded by the rule of law.

While the First Amendment—which gives us a voice—is being muzzled, the Fourth Amendment—which protects us from being bullied, badgered, beaten, broken and spied on by government agents—is being disemboweled. More

Dear Senator Manchin……What’s killing us is people like you who need to be removed from office

**Note: IF congress allows due process protections to be stripped from those on these massive FBI lists, the premise for that will be quickly adopted by other federal agencies, even those with no interest in guns sales. There is no way this will be limited to the purchasing of guns. The recent event in Orlando was the stage show meant to shock the public into forfeiting their constitutional rights.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

10155281_461153860682070_1662322543_nSenator Joe Manchin (D) appears not to understand the rights contained in the Constitution. Apparently, the right to due process, the constitutional protection against the very things he advocates, is a thorn in Senator Manchin’s hide. As he himself admits, due process is the firewall that prevents agencies such as the FBI, from adding individuals to lists of suspects….no evidence, no crime….they just decided you belonged on one of their lists.

Manchin goes on to say on on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the right to due process, guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, had made it difficult to pass gun-control legislation denying those on the FBI’s terror watch list the ability to purchase a firearm. I would assume that with the massive non-stop surveillance that is carried on daily this would be virtually impossible to purchase a gun without the FBI, NSA, CIA and assorted other spy agencies knowing about it immediately. All that spying, all that data collection, the mountains of stolen information about everyone in the country……and the FBI couldn’t stop this man from purchasing guns?

Question: How can a man be employed by a security company that protects federal buildings among other things, and still be employed by that company if he is suspected of possible terrorism? More

Marcia Southwick will return to the show to give a summary of the state of New Mexico, adult legislations for 2013.  Marcia also publishes, Boomers Against Elder Abuse on Facebook.  This group is growing each day and heading towards 35,000 members.

In response to the exposure of the corruptive practices now being exposed in probate and family courts, many interested “stakeholders”……such as Guardianship associations, the BAR association, and many in the medical complex are leaning on state legislatures to expand their death grip on the elder community, and to make legal the theft of estates, the stripping of rights and the willful ignoring of standing state statutes meant to protect the victims from the predators.

Some of these new laws seem to heading backwards, but a few are good.

Issues are things like Due process, the role of guardian ad litem, Mediation, guardian background checks, guardianship financial authority, ward’s rights–etc. There are maybe 5 or so states to highlight, including New Mexico, Texas, Tennessee, Idaho, and Nevada.

In New Mexico, insanity has taken over.

Elder abuse: Monterey County Public Guardian denies right to attend hearings

The Monterey County Public Guardian seized control of San Francisco resident Margarita Zelada and her estate.  Since March 3013, Margarita has been unlawfully confined in Monterey County, forcibly isolated, and denied nearly all contact with loved ones and advocates.

The Public Guardian allows Margarita no contact with her daughter, occasional brief contact with her niece in Texas, no contact with elder rights advocates, and no contact with legal counsel of her choice.  The Public Guardian denies Margarita her right to attend court hearings on her case and denies her right to oppose the abuse she has suffered.

On January 29, 2014, the Monterey County Probate Court will review Margarita’s case and hear the Public Guardian’s petition for authority to forcibly administer chemical restraint. Niece Bonnie Lind repeatedly asked that Margarita be allowed to attend the hearing on her case and be allowed her right to oppose forced chemical restraint.

Jennifer Empasis and Chris Campbell,

I would like to request my aunt, Margarita Zelada be allowed to attend her conservatorship hearing scheduled for December 18, 2013.  According to the Notice of Conservatee’s Rights, Margarita has a right to take part in important decisions affecting her life, property and way of life.  Please do not deny her this basic right.

Legal v Lawful:  Weasel word swapping at its finest

Weasel word swaps are those words and phrases that sound as if they mean a certain thing and, most of you have been conditioned to believe mean something specific, when in fact, they do not. The recent ruling by U.S. District Judge William Pauley III who took it upon himself to violate the Constitutional rights of every American citizen when he decided that the unwarranted and illegal  NSA spying on virtually everyone, was LEGAL (he did NOT say lawful).  The swapping of the word legal as opposed to lawful requires a closer look.

Definition of legalize:

To make legal or lawful; to confirm or validate what was before void or unlawful; to add the sanction and authority of law to that which before was without or against law.  

In other words, the NSA Spying without probable cause, without obtaining a warrant  is and was1441183_401318466665654_1752838926_n unconstitutional and therefore, unlawful.  Pauley, who knew exactly what he was doing, attempted to by-pass the Constitutional prohibitions against exactly this kind of unfettered and lawless activity by the government and its incorporated agencies to make an otherwise Constitutionally prohibited activity appear to be lawful.

Law Dictionary:

Definition of Legal:  Blacks Law Fifth Edition page 803, column 1, para: 9

Conforming to the law; according to the law; countenanced by the law; good and effectual in law. Not forbidden or discountenanced by law; good and effectual in law.

This contrasts with a ruling earlier this month by U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon who ruled that the spying was in fact, unconstitutional and unlawful.

H. Res. 814: In defense of the second amendment

10 Comments

Marti Oakley (c) Copyright 2012 All Rights Reserved

_________________________________________________________________

Apparently there are still a few public officials who will honor the Constitution left in the House of Representatives.  Many of these representatives recognized the threat to the second amendment inherent in the UN Small Arms Treaty.  This treaty, which the president has indicated he would sign, bypassing congress and ratification by the states, is intended to be handed back over to the Secretary of State to implement by agency decree and imposed upon the states.

While being sold to the public as simply a guideline for limiting the sales of small arms to the same countries we are many times waging war with, the treaty would severely affect the sale and ownership of small arms i.e., private gun ownership, here in the states.  The obvious end goal included in many other global goals,  is the disarmament of US gun owners.

The UN Small Arms treaty is nothing more than the effort to end all gun ownership anywhere in the world, except those weapons used by the military forces around the globe. With the UN attempting to gift itself the right to construct its own military with an eye on becoming the only military force on the planet, our right to keep and bear arms is more important than ever.

The Small Arms Treaty will not slow down or even minimally impact the arms trading and dealing that is conducted globally.

Arms controls for peace while we expand the global wars

“In what has to be the epitome of duplicity, Hillary Clinton is now conspiring with UN officials to begin the disarmament of the citizens of the US via this pseudo-treaty. Its all for world peace, right? Obviously not, as Clinton gave an excited speech in May 2012, to the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference describing the new six-point global plan for war intended to encompass numerous countries and her obvious desire for her department to be part and parcel of the newly emerging “global wars everywhere” plan. Clinton’s obvious disregard or refusal to acknowledge the deaths of children resulting from these wars is clearly an indication that the woman is lying about her desire for world peace. But I think we already knew that.”

Please contact your representatives and encourage them to support H.Res. 814.  It may well be just another half-hearted effort to make you think they are actually opposed to this treaty, but it will give you a chance to voice your objections directly to your representative.  FIND YOUR REPRESENTATIVE

America No Longer the Land of the Free

The United States is no longer the shining light leading the rest of the world in regards to freedom and liberty. The President signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) under the radar late on New Years Eve of 2011.  The new law  takes away American basic constitutional rights.
 
The new law now in effect robs all Americans of our due process of law which nullifies many principles and rights afforded all Americans in our Constitution and Bill of rights guaranteed by our founding Fathers. These rights were given to us by our founding fathers and many Americans have given there lives to protect these basic and fundamental rights. President Obama has just stated a policy that he can have any American citizen killed without any charge, without any review, except his own. If he’s satisfied that you are a terrorist, he says that he can kill you anywhere in the world including on American soil anywhere in the United States.

Americans can be arrested and taken to jail without the right of a phone call, right to a lawyer, and without being charged with any crime of any kind. More

S.1867: The hunting of America expands

______________________________________________

Many of us have wondered if directed to; would our own military turn on us?  It appears that this is the plan and has been all along, yet the question remains……would they actually do it if ordered to? 

S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill.  Senators Carl Levin (D) MI and John McCain (R) AZ, are bringing this bill to the Senate floor on

S.1867 The end of Liberty

Monday after having held secret committee meetings while never holding even one hearing on this bill which authorizes military action against US citizens, right here in the United States. 

While the bill appears on the surface to be about authorizing defense funding for the illegal wars, the ongoing unwarranted surveillance of the US population and the continuing violations of the 4th Amendment as applied to US citizens, many of the provisions of the bill do not pertain to unidentifiable terrorists or any other villain carefully crafted to terrorize the country.  The fact is, as a result of the false flag attacks on 9/11, we have massive numbers of police state “laws” on the books which created “terrorists” or redefined “terrorist activity” to include everything from political dissent and free speech,  even including targeting of  US citizens for mentioning or referencing the Constitution or supporting third party, non-approved candidates for public office.

When this bill passes with these police state provisions included  (I believe it will) you can expect your senator who voted “yes” on the bill to maintain that they only did so because otherwise the funding for the wars would have ceased (we could only hope) and they have to continue to fight the terrorists, terrorism, or what ever lame excuse pops into their heads to explain why they voted to pass what is clearly a police state bill. 

The bill itself was drafted in secret and I believe it would be to our benefit to know who actually drafted that bill.   More

“The 1986 law was passed as a protection to one of the largest contributors to political campaigns. It was a specially designed program that removed the right to enter into state or federal court and to sue for damages as a result of mandatory vaccinations which even in 1986 were known to cause more harm than good. “

_________________________________________

In what should come as no surprise to anyone who has watched as the Supreme Court routinely renders rulings which are clearly protective of corporate interests, another “opinion”, one clearly meant to protect big pharma from being held even remotely liable for the harm and damage caused by toxic vaccines, was just handed down. In a majority opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia, the court ruled the federal law preempted all design-defect claims against vaccine manufacturers. These would be the design defects that kill people, cause autism, neurological damage and lifetime physical impairment.

Apparently Justice Scalia is unaware that no law can be enacted which abrogates your individual rights.  Any law that attempts to deprive you of your rights is null and void on its face as if it had never been.  Actually, Scalia doesn’t really care and has routinely issued opinions that are written as if he is living in some other universe where he makes up his own laws and then decides they are real.

“This means they can lie, cheat and steal when functioning in their capacity as a judge and you cannot hold them accountable for their actions.  This, the courts have ruled, is necessary to insure an independent judiciary.”

__________________________________________________

Anyone who has taken the time and exerted the energy to read the Constitution and then compares that document to the conduct of the Federal Government quickly realizes that most of what the government does today is outside the powers granted to it by the Constitution.  The question is, what can be done about it?

Many talk about a political solution, asserting that the wrong people are elected to office and that the solution lies in electing the right people to office.  However, this solution is overly simplistic and in denial of some of the basic characteristics of human nature. 

Why should we believe that a different set of elected legislators would react or behave any differently when subjected to the same temptations and pressures of elected office? 

Being subject to temptations of the flesh, there are few among us who have not stepped beyond the bounds of accepted standards of morality and would thereby have compromised our integrity in the eyes of the general public.  Fear of this exposure coupled with rewards of monetary gain or increased positions of power become the proverbial carrot and stick used to control politicians and bend them to the will of those who would control the conduct of government and frustrate the will of the people.  Precious few politicians are allowed to rise to significant positions of power unless they have been compromised and have demonstrated a willingness to submit to demands.

Those who framed our Constitution were aware of the fact of human frailty and created mechanisms to compensate for and correct the unavoidable consequences of that frailty.  That mechanism is called the rule of law and due process of law.  The Constitution, being the highest law of the land, the organic law of this nation, takes precedence over all statutes, codes and regulations.   More

Granny-knapping: One Iowa family fights to free their mother from a predatory guardianship

Predatory Guardianships

This story recounted below,  is being repeated across the country in every state of the union as predatory guardians, with the aid of banks, attorneys and corrupt courts and police departments,  prey on the elderly.  Using the aid of the courts, and numerous violations of due process, civil rights and violating many laws, the elderly are being virtually kidnapped from their homes, isolated from family and friends and declared incompetent.  Once this process is set in motion with the sanction of the courts, the theft of the estate begins.  Everybody gets a piece of the pie while the victim….now held prisoner in a participating nursing home or other facility, is drugged, isolated and held against their will.

Think this can’t happen in America?  We got laws, right?  Yes we do, but the courts have decided they can make their own and are not obliged to honor those pesky laws or the rights of the people victimized by them.

This is one Iowa family’s short history of the kidnapping and imprisonment of their mother as “the Team”, comprised of bankers, attorneys and a predatory guardian attempt to seize and liquidate the assets of the woman they now hold hostage.

Dorothy Driesen, a 90 year old widowed Mother, has had her estate taken  away from her by court decree and forced to reside at a nursing home that has had multiple felony accounts charged against it in 2003.

This column is archived here:

Anyone paying attention knows that John McCain has been a Big-Government Globalist Neocon (BGGN) for virtually his entire senatorial career. As with many BGGNs hiding out in the Republican Party, McCain likes to talk about smaller government, but his track record is littered with the promotion of one big government program after another. But, what else would one expect from a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)?Lately, however, McCain has outdone himself. He has introduced two bills in the US Senate that are about as Machiavellian as they could be. I am referring to S.3081, a bill that would authorize the federal government to detain American citizens indefinitely without trial, and S.3002, a bill that would authorize the federal government to regulate vitamins, minerals, and virtually all health and natural food products.

According to Examiner.com, “Last week, John McCain introduced a bill into the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would actually allow U.S. citizens to be arrested and detained indefinitely, all without Miranda rights or ever being charged with a crime.” More

They will have no inherent rights, no human rights, no legal standing whatsoever – save whatever modicum of process the government arbitrarily deigns to grant them from time to time, with its ever-shifting tribunals and show trials.”  READ FULL ARTICLE

Another anti-gun bill from the anti-gun extremists


by David S
(libertarian)
Saturday, May 9, 2009

HR 2159 is another bill from the anti-gun extremists. It says;

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d105:h.r.02159:

“The Attorney General may deny the transfer of a firearm pursuant to section 922(t)(1)(B)(ii) if the Attorney General determines that the transferee is known (or appropriately suspected) to be or have been engaged in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to terrorism, or providing material support thereof, and the Attorney General has a reasonable belief that the prospective transferee may use a firearm in connection with terrorism.”

In other words if the Attorney General suspects that you are a terrorist then he can deny you the right to buy a gun. There is no trial and no due process of law. So not only does this bill violate the second amendment, it also violates the fifth and sixth amendments.

The author of this bill and the cosponsors all took an oath to support the constitution. And yet here they are happily proposing to violate it left and right. In my opinion that should be ample reason for removing them from office.

But there are other troubling aspects to this bill. If second amendment rights can be removed in this manner what about other rights. Could your first amendment right of free speech be revoked because you might be using it to conspire with others to commit acts of terrorism? Could your fourth amendment right to privacy be taken because you might have something dangerous on your person or your property?

This bill stinks to high heaven. All Americans should contact their representatives and tell them this bill must not pass.
