Proof Chief Justice Roberts Blackmailed? Sibel Edmonds Blows The Whistle On Government Blackmailing – The Corbett Report

Very powerful video, watch it while it is available,

Was Supreme Court Justice John Roberts blackmailed into supporting Obamacare via information gained about him by the National Security Agency? The more US government crimes are being exposed by whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning, Russ Tice and Sibel Edmonds, the more I get the feeling that these criminal politicians and criminals in the state department are the ones who are slowly being boiled, not realizing that their crimes and lies have left them in extremely hot water.

Editorial

President Obama’s Dragnet

By 
Published: June 6, 2013   

Within hours of the disclosure that federal authorities routinely collect data on phone calls Americans make, regardless of whether they have any bearing on a counterterrorism investigation, the Obama administration issued the same platitude it has offered every time President Obama has been caught overreaching in the use of his powers: Terrorists are a real menace and you should just trust us to deal with them because we have internal mechanisms (that we are not going to tell you about) to make sure we do not violate your rights.

Those reassurances have never been persuasive — whether on secret warrants to scoop up a news agency’s phone records or secret orders to kill an American suspected of terrorism — especially coming from a president who once promised transparency and accountability.       

The administration has now lost all credibility on this issue. Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive branch will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it. That is one reason we have long argued that the Patriot Act, enacted in the heat of fear after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by members of Congress who mostly had not even read it, was reckless in its assignment of unnecessary and overbroad surveillance powers.       

Based on an article in The Guardian published Wednesday night, we now know that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency used the Patriot Act to obtain a secret warrant to compel Verizon’s business services division to turn over data on every single call that went through its system. We know that this particular order was a routine extension of surveillance that has been going on for years, and it seems very likely that it extends beyond Verizon’s business division. There is every reason to believe the federal government has been collecting every bit of information about every American’s phone calls except the words actually exchanged in those calls.       

Articles in The Washington Post and The Guardian described a process by which the N.S.A. is also able to capture Internet communications directly from the servers of nine leading American companies. The articles raised questions about whether the N.S.A. separated foreign communications from domestic ones.

A senior administration official quoted in The Times online Thursday afternoon about the Verizon order offered the lame observation that the information does not include the name of any caller, as though there would be the slightest difficulty in matching numbers to names. He said the information “has been a critical tool in protecting the nation from terrorist threats,” because it allows the government “to discover whether known or suspected terrorists have been in contact with other persons who may be engaged in terrorist activities, particularly people located inside the United States.”       

•       

That is a vital goal, but how is it served by collecting everyone’s call data? The government can easily collect phone records (including the actual content of those calls) on “known or suspected terrorists” without logging every call made. In fact, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act was expanded in 2008 for that very purpose.       

Essentially, the administration is saying that without any individual suspicion of wrongdoing, the government is allowed to know whom Americans are calling every time they make a phone call, for how long they talk and from where.       

This sort of tracking can reveal a lot of personal and intimate information about an individual. To casually permit this surveillance — with the American public having no idea that the executive branch is now exercising this power — fundamentally shifts power between the individual and the state, and it repudiates constitutional principles governing search, seizure and privacy.       

The defense of this practice offered by Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, who as chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee is supposed to be preventing this sort of overreaching, was absurd. She said on Thursday that the authorities need this information in case someone might become a terrorist in the future. Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, the vice chairman of the committee, said the surveillance has “proved meritorious, because we have gathered significant information on bad guys and only on bad guys over the years.”       

But what assurance do we have of that, especially since Ms. Feinstein went on to say that she actually did not know how the data being collected was used?

The senior administration official quoted in The Times said the executive branch internally reviews surveillance programs to ensure that they “comply with the Constitution and laws of the United States and appropriately protect privacy and civil liberties.”

That’s no longer good enough. Mr. Obama clearly had no intention of revealing this eavesdropping, just as he would not have acknowledged the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen, had it not been reported in the press. Even then, it took him more than a year and a half to acknowledge the killing, and he is still keeping secret the protocol by which he makes such decisions.       

•       

We are not questioning the legality under the Patriot Act of the court order disclosed by The Guardian. But we strongly object to using that power in this manner. It is the very sort of thing against which Mr. Obama once railed, when he said in 2007 that the surveillance policy of the George W. Bush administration “puts forward a false choice between the liberties we cherish and the security we provide.”       

Two Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Ron Wyden of Oregon and Mark Udall of Colorado, have raised warnings about the government’s overbroad interpretation of its surveillance powers. “We believe most Americans would be stunned to learn the details of how these secret court opinions have interpreted Section 215 of the Patriot Act,” they wrote last year in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. “As we see it, there is now a significant gap between what most Americans think the law allows and what the government secretly claims the law allows. This is a problem, because it is impossible to have an informed public debate about what the law should say when the public doesn’t know what its government thinks the law says.”       

On Thursday, Representative Jim Sensenbrenner, Republican of Wisconsin, who introduced the Patriot Act in 2001, said that the National Security Agency overstepped its bounds by obtaining a secret order to collect phone log records from millions of Americans.       

“As the author of the Patriot Act, I am extremely troubled by the F.B.I.’s interpretation of this legislation,” he said in a statement. “While I believe the Patriot Act appropriately balanced national security concerns and civil rights, I have always worried about potential abuses.” He added: “Seizing phone records of millions of innocent people is excessive and un-American.”       

Stunning use of the act shows, once again, why it needs to be sharply curtailed if not repealed.

The Silver Interview the “Good Guys” Don’t Want You To Hear (w/comment)

From Bix Weir:
 
**I sent this email a few days ago and got a HUGE response from people who have just recently join our Road. The hardest part of my job to educate the masses about the manipulation of gold and silver is that the new people have to start from the BEGINNING and it’s difficult to rehash the same information to get people up to speed. This interview and the Road to Roota Theory link below have opened many new eyes to what is going on. Are you up to speed yet??
___________
 
One of the ongoing dilemmas on the Road to Roota is the exposure of the original “Good Guys”. The original people that set up the plan to secretly take down the banking cabal and return us to a true Gold Standard. The people that secretly started the computer price manipulation practices of the precious metal markets back in the early 1970’s that continue in full force today.
 
At times I do feel bad that I have pulled back the curtain but this has to be done. The TRUTH has to be told and the problems FIXED. Their grand plan from over 40 years ago has ultimately turned into a GRAND DISASTER with no smooth transition back to sound money. The rigging programs are in the hands of the banksters now and they use the cover of the original plan to help the world distort and defraud every market on Earth.
 
Should the “Good Guys” have waged a preemptive open war against the “Bad Guys” back in the 1960’s after they took out Kennedy and took over our country? Maybe. But now they have let the global monetary destruction fall on the laps of our generation and its time to PULL THE PLUG on the entire operation. 
 
The only way to do that is to EXPOSE THE TRUTH and that’s what this interview begins to do.
 
Bix Weir: Story Behind the Road to Roota Silver Medallion
 
You can close your eyes to the information presented on the Road to Roota but you can’t erase the facts. The Fed Boston comics are REAL and they do talk about overthrowing the “Big People” who run our system. They talk about the need for a Gold Standard. They reference 911 conspiracies and talk about the secret “Oil Standard” that Kissinger set up to artificially support the US Dollar. They allude to the hidden caves of gold in the United States. They talk about the redistribution of money after the system falls apart. Even the new $100 Bill that comes out in October 2013 references the new Gold Standard and the need for “We The People” to finally stand up and remove our current leaders.
 
Alan Greenspan, John Kemeny, Stephen Devaux, Harold Sullivan, George Goodwin Jr. all were involved in the implementation of the Greenspan plan to rig the markets via computer programs. Ronald Reagan, Ron Paul, Paul Volcker, Dianne Feinstein and Barney Frank carried it forward through the years. Ben Bernanke is in charge of the final monetary IMPLOSION as he prints money faster and deeper than any previous Fed Chairman. The end cometh fast…keep an eye out for the actions of Warren Buffett as he will be involved in the final blow.
 
If none of the above makes sense to you you can start your awakening process here:
 
The Road to Roota Theory
 
It is time to spread the truth so please send the interview all around the internet. People need to wake up and smell “Roota’s Flowers” if we ever want to get out of this mess!
 
May the Road you choose be the Right Road

Holder is by far the single worst Attorney General our nation has suffered to date

Thanks to:  Musings of a Mad Conservative,

Link at the bottom.

Holder is by far the single worst Attorney General our nation has suffered to date
Anything Short of Hard Time is a Defeat of Epic Proportions
“We are beyond the point where a little embarrassment will be adequate. We need to put the criminals in jail.”
 
We can file this one in the category of, “I don’t know what to wish for.”  Our side has been absolutely giddy lately with the recent, albeit deserved, fall from grace by key members of Team Zero.  On the one hand, Eric Holder is by far the single worst Attorney General our nation has suffered to date.  That’s impressive, considering the fact that Janet Reno once held that position.  He has politicized the Justice Department to the point where its very name has become some sort of sick mocking irony.  Backing off from the Orwellian manner in which Holder has performed his duties thus far however, even if, and things look slightly inevitable now, Holder resigns his position as our nation’s top law enforcement official, who do any of us believe will replace him?  (By the way, it is far from a done deal that Holder will be forced out at all.  Remember, our current President has not shown the slightest shyness in appointing known criminals to cabinet positions.  An example would be Tim Geitner, who’s problems with tax evasion were over looked in order to utilize his genius in overseeing the Department of Treasury, that very directorate that is responsible for handling people with tax evasion problems.)

The problem as I see it, is that even if Eric Holder goes, Barack Obama will still be the only person with the Constitutional Authority to nominate his replacement.  Who does anyone believe will be given that nod from the Bamster?  As our nation’s chief executive, Barack Obama has shown a penchant for nominating the worst possible candidates for any and every position.  If this next statement doesn’t chill you right to your bones, nothing is capable of placing fear into your heart.  Are you ready?  Hillary Clinton was the most competent member of the Obama Administration.  And all she did as our Secretary of State was to oversee a situation where roughly one quarter of our embassies world wide were set ablaze as some sort of bizarre celebration of the, “Arab Spring.”  If Eric Holder resigns, which is far from being a done deal, and subsequently slinks out of town quietly, he will be replaced by Eric Holder 2.0, and that version has the potential to be far worse.

The question here, is how can we prevent this from happening?  I’m going to take a slight detour here, but I promise that it will tie in to the topic at hand, and eventually make sense.  During the summer of 1979, our economy was in a shambles, and actually stood in far worse shape than even the darkest days of 2008’s fall or 2009’s summer.  The reported unemployment rate stood at solid double digits, and actual unemployment was pushing 20%.  Annual inflation peaked at 13.5%, and William Miller, our Fed Chairman practiced a pure Keynesian approach, despite promising the opposite.  Before William Miller, Arthur Burns did the same, and before Burns, W. McChesney Martin ran an identical policy.  We had a monetary policy of purposeful currency devaluation from the 1950’s through the late 1970’s without respite.  1979, thanks in part to the utter incompetence of the President we had elected for ourselves saw those sins ultimately reach their inevitable conclusion, as a full blown economic crisis.  On August 6, 1979, President Jimmy Carter’s only good decision, Paul Volcker, took his place as our Fed Chairman. 

What is important to note here, is that Volcker was not Jimmy Carter’s first, second, or even third choice to head up the Fed.  Carter was forced to nominate Volcker, by a business community who were preparing to surround the White House with torches and pitch forks.  They were joined in their anger by mostly Congressional Members of his own party, who were skittish about their own prospects for reelection in an election that was only a year away.  Volcker’s performance as our Fed Chairman was perhaps as important for our economic recovery and boom as Ronald Reagan. The point I suppose, is that even someone with Jimmy Carter’s level of incompetence is capable of making good decisions. 

To be certain, there are differences between Carter and Obama.  One being that Barack Obama is a narcissist, and quite frankly incapable of caring about anything or anyone other than himself and those things that do not impact his life and possessions personally.  He does not care about trite little things like the electoral prospects of those people in his party.  He does not care if his personal convenience is ruinous for others around him, or if his ideology causes hardship for anyone else, anywhere.  Eric Holder has served him well, and his brand of politicizing the Justice Department serves the President’s agenda to a tee.  I do not see anything changing that, despite the loss of approval ratings that the President has currently enjoyed.  Barack Obama does not need to win any more elections, and really no longer has a use for approval ratings.  He has shown that he understands executive fiat all too well, and most certainly can continue this strategy for 42 months longer without so much as a scintilla of cooperation from Congress, regardless of the make up of that fine collection of political cowards.

If there is to be any improvement with our current dilemma, it will only ever happen if the church of liberalism were brought down a bit, and more importantly, the church of Obama along with it.  The first of those criteria was met over these past few weeks, but that one criteria being met is not enough.  Eric Holder must go to prison, and he must face a penalty commensurate with the laws he has broken.  Perjuring oneself to congress, swearing out falsified warrants, obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and racketeering all carry stiff penalties should one be convicted of such.  The only way a future Attorney General appointed by Barack Obama keeps to the straight and narrow is if they realize that politicizing and abusing the power of that office comes with a price.  For that matter, all bureaucrats working in our out of control Executive Branch need to be reminded that behaving in such a manner carries consequences. 

Darrell Issa asking a few uncomfortable questions of our nation’s ruling class elite will accomplish nothing.  Our ruling class elite learning the hard way that they too, are accountable for their actions will accomplish much.  Lisa Jackson broke the law while working for the Environmental Protection Agency, and she was promoted to a position of increased responsibility.  Victoria Nuland broke the law while working for the State Department, and she was promoted to a position of increased responsibility.  Lois Lerner broke the law while working for the IRS, and subsequently was promoted to a position of greater responsibility.  There is a definite pattern to be noticed here.  Even if the White House did not direct any of the shenanigans, (something I do not believe for a moment,) they are sending a clear message by promoting these law breakers.  Currently, that message is, “abuse your power and break the law, it’s OK, you may even get promoted.”  With an incarcerated Eric Holder, Lisa Jackson, Victoria Nuland, and Lois Lerner, that message would immediately change to one of, “even if the President turns a blind eye to people in his Administration violating the public trust, you will still find yourself in prison should you do just that.”

A show hearing in which our Congress Critters pretend to get tough will do little to solve the problems of a politicized government run amok.  Actual accountability will do wonders towards the goal of constraining this behemoth.  We are beyond the point where a little embarrassment will be adequate.  We need to put the criminals in jail, and there is no better group than those who have abused their authority to do that very thing to others in our society, some of them unjustly.           

 

 

Speechless Turd, Something Is Very Wrong, What Could Be Up!

Turd Ferguson, of the TF Metals Report, does superb work and commentary on the precious metals markets. His latest analysis on Friday’s Commitment of Traders Report caught my attention for a number of reasons, in addition to it being so well done. Here it is with his permission to show to you:

Speechless Turd

Friday, May 31, 2013 at 5:28 PM

We knew that this week’s COT was going to be interesting but I didn’t expect it to leave me speechless.

Look, I know I’ve been banging this drum for months and all the metals have done is go down. Got it. I read you loud and clear. But we’re talking big picture, positioning stuff here. I am 100% firm in my belief that QE8 caught the bullion banks with their pants down. All of the price action since 9/13/12 has been designed to alleviate the gigantic financial risk and potential liability of being short paper metal. By smashing price, against the fundamentals, from $1800 to $1350 and from $35 to $22, The Cartel Banks have accomplished two things:

  • They’ve been able to transfer the vast majority of their potential liability from themselves to the speculator sector (hedge funds, managed money, small investors).
  • And now, instead of being trapped short, they are a in position to profit from the inevitable explosion in price.

Even though it’s blatantly criminal, you almost have to give them credit. That they’ve been able to pull this off in broad daylight is simply astounding. On the level of Oceans 11.

Once again and with meaning: On 9/11/12, two days before the announcement of QE8 and with gold already at $1800, The Gold Cartel was net short 237,091 Comex contracts. That’s 23,709,100 paper troy ounces or about 737 metric tonnes of gold. As of last Tuesday, they are now net short just 59,221 contracts or about 184 metric tonnes. A reduction of just over 75%! Oh, and did I mention that, over the same time period, the GLD has been raided for 277 metric tonnes? Just thought I’d throw that in, too. Simply magnificent! The Crime of The Century! Ah, screw that. That’s The Crime of The 20th Century, too!! Amazing.

So, here are your numbers. Keep in mind that, for the reporting week, gold was up $1.30 while total open interest fell ahead of June13 expiration by 35,086 contracts. Also keep on mind that for Wednesday and Thursday of this week, total OI fell another 25,110 contracts. One can only imagine how much more long-term bullish these levels are as of this weekend.GOLDFor the week, the Large Specs dumped 16,836 longs and added 6,544 new shorts (quite a few of which got squeezed yesterday and put back on today). This brings the Large Spec net long total down to just 56,879 contracts. Do you think that’s a lot? Hmmm. What if I told you that, back on 9/11/12, the Large Specs were net long 182,016? From a different perspective, back on 9/11/12, the Large Spec net long ratio was 6.62:1. As of last Tuesday, it was down to1.49:1. And here’s a little more perspective for you: At the price lows on 12/27/2011, the Large Specs were net long 130,788 with a ratio of 4.57:1 and at the price lows of last August they were net long 114,304 with a ratio of 3.43:1. Again, as of last Tuesday, the Large Specs were net long just 56,879 contracts and had a net long ratio of 1.49:1. The Small Specs also reduced their net long position by a little over 1500 contracts and they are now net long just 2,342 total contracts. Again, by contrast, back on 9/11/12 the Small Specs were net long 55,075. That’s a reduction of nearly 96%!And The Gold Cartel. What did they accomplish this week? Not much…No, they just reduced their net short exposure by nearly 25,000 contracts! Again and as stated above, The Gold Cartel is now net short just 59,221 contracts or 184 metric tonnes of paper gold. Back on 9/11/12, they were net short 237,091 contracts or 737 metric tonnes of paper gold. The new Cartel net short ratio is just 1.34:1. This means that they are now long 3 contracts for every four that they are short. Incredible!
