After 5 years US government to release info on verification of SSNs in Obamacare

by Orly Taitz


On Saturday 01.20.2018 Attorney Orly Taitz, President of Defend Our Freedoms Foundation,  suddenly received a consent for production of information, which was requested 5 years ago. FOIA response re social security numbers  For the past 10 years attorney Orly Taitz fought for transparency in the government and end to corruption.

In relation to Obamacare, Taitz provided the government with a 200 page file showing how individuals without a Social Security number or ones using a stolen Social Security number can get Obamacare health insurance, which is paid by the US taxpayers. This leads to increase in premiums and deductibles.  Taitz was seeking documentary evidence showing how Social Security numbers of recipients are being verified in ACA Obamacare. Current release of documents, which will start within days, will help to clean up Obamacare fraud and will save the taxpayers billions of dollars.

Additionally, with the start of Obamacare, it was reported that Mr. Obama applied for Obamacare on line and his application was rejected. Subsequently, he dispatched his aide, who hand delivered the application to the Washington DC ACA exchange, where the rejection was manually overridden and Obamacare policy was issued for Barack Obama.

Originally, the media claimed that this happened because the Social Security number of Barack Obama was sealed. Taitz submitted an FOIA request to the Washington DC ACA,  requesting documentation which would show that the Social Security number of Barack Obama was sealed. Taitz got a response from Washington DC ACA, stating that Barack Obama’s Social Security number was not sealed. FOIA Response Washington DC Exchange.

Taitz provided several government agencies with a 150 page file showing why the original application was rejected. The evidence included the unredacted  tax returns, which Mr. Obama originally posted on White House.gov. (subsequently those tax returns were redacted). Those tax returns showed Barack Obama using a Connecticut Social Security number xxx-xx-4425. Since Obama was never a resident of Connecticut, there is no legitimate reason for him to have a CT SSN. Later, this number was traced to records of Harrison J. Bounel, who resided originally in Bronx, NY and later believed to have resided in nearby Connecticut.  Mr. Obama was repeatedly requested to explain to the public, why he is using a CT Social Security number, why doesn’t he have a valid Social Security number from the state of Hawaii, where he grew up?

Mr. Obama never responded and never provided any explanation. This matter is still under investigation by a number of government agencies. As Obama appointees are being gradually replaced by Trump appointees, more information, more documentation to FOIA requests, more answers are expected.

Taitz will start releasing information to the media and to the public at large in batches, as the information will start arriving from the CMS HHS.


FOIA response re social security numbers


Hillary Clinton Cannot win the 2020 Presidential Race

by Wayne Flaherty


There is no way Hillary can win the presidency when 66 % of the people believe she is not trustworthy and 58 % also believe that she is corrupt. She cannot run on her record since that will only bring more proof of her corruption. If she falls back on her tried and true technique of lying her way out of a situation, what lie can she tell that would facilitate her escape? How do you lie your way out of 25 years of corruption?

She cannot win a debate with Donald Trump. He will not only defeat her, he will annihilate her. He will ask her the questions she has so desperately tried to avoid. As of today, it has been 221 days since she has held a press conference. She will not hold a press conference because she has no answers for the questions that are sure to be asked. She depends totally on her 3 media outlets (ABC, CBS, & NBC) to whitewash her image. No other media outlet will give her the free pass that she gets from these 3 co-conspirators. The silence of her media trio cannot hide the millions of dollars she has accepted from foreign nations hostile to America. What she promised them in exchange for her 30 pieces of silver is unknown but you can be sure it won't be good for America.

She must find a squeaky-clean Vice Presidential running mate - a person who is her exact opposite in temperament, honesty, and corruption. What sane person would use their hard earned reputation in an attempt to prop up a candidate that the people distrust to the degree the public distrusts her? Maybe there is someone who wants to be the captain of the Titanic but I seriously doubt it. Not only will squeaky-clean fail to pull her up in the polls, she will pull them down so far that she will essentially end their political career. Already, one person discussed for her VP has been eliminated because he is just as corrupt as Hillary. She will never win by attempting to run on her VP's record. She will still be 'Crooked Hillary'.

Bill Clinton sealed Hillary's fate in the email scandal when he met with Attorney General Lynch. If the FBI recommends Hillary be indicted, the AG would be forced to proceed with the criminal charges. If the AG finds her not guilty, everyone will know the fix is in. If, as many people say, AG Lynch is an honorable person, she will have only one way to salvage her already damaged career - find Hillary guilty. If the FBI does not recommend a future indictment, then everyone will know the fix is in and Bill Clinton was just giving the AG her marching orders.

Hillary's time in Washington stands as stark evidence of 25 years of lies and corruption. Time after time, the Clintons, and Hillary in particular, demonstrate contempt for the law, and assure us common folk that the law does not apply to them. One area of proof is the number of books written about the Clinton corruption that increases almost weekly.

Like a caged animal, Hillary huffs and puffs, feigns indignation, and declares "It's time to move on!" Unfortunately, fate has decreed otherwise, and the people are choosing not to move on. They are demanding accountability and they will get it - at the polls if necessary.


Chelsea’s ‘Best Friend’ Wins $11 Mil In Defense Contracts With No Clearance

by Richard Pollock


A company whose president is “best friends” with Chelsea Clinton received more than $11 million in contracts over the last decade from a highly secretive Department of Defense think tank, but to date, the group lacks official federal approval to handle classified materials, according to sensitive documents TheDCNF was allowed to review.

Jacqueline Newmyer, the president of a company called the Long Term Strategy Group, has over the last 10 years received numerous Defense Department contracts from a secretive think tank called Office of Net Assessment.

The Office of Net Assessment is so sensitive, the specialized think tank is housed in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and reports directly to the secretary. To date, the Long Term Strategy Group has received $11.2 million in contracts, according to USAspending,gov, a government database of federal contracts. But after winning a decade of contracts from the Office of Net Assessment, the federal agency is only now in the process of granting clearance to the company. Long Term Strategy Group never operated a secure room on their premises to handle classified materials, according to the Defense Security Service, a federal agency that approves secure rooms inside private sector firms. Long Term Strategy Group operates offices in Washington, D.C., and Cambridge, Mass. 

“The Long Term Strategy Group is currently in process for a facility clearance with the Defense Security Service,” the agency informed The DCNF in an email. 

Newmyer declined to address her company’s lack of facilities to handle classified material. “With regard to your questions about the status of our facilities, those are best directed to the US government, which has authority over such matters,” she wrote in an email to The DCNF.  She also declined to say whether her company is footing the bill for the new secure facility, or if the taxpayers are footing the bill through the Office of Net Assessment.

Adam Lovinger, a whistleblower and 12-year Office of Net Assessment (ONA) veteran, has repeatedly warned ONA’s leadership they faced risks by relying on outside contractors as well as the problem of cronyism and a growing “revolving door” policy, where ONA employees would leave the defense think tank and join private contractors to do the same work.

Others outside ONA have drawn similar conclusions about the office’s reliance on outside contractors. USA Today complained in August 2013 that the same set of contractors never seem to leave ONA: “While Democratic and Republican administrations come and go, ONA and its team of outside advisers remains the same. Contract records show the office relies on studies from outside contractors.” 

Clinton and Newmyer first met each other while attending Sidwell Friends School, an exclusive private Quaker school in the nation’s capital. They were in each other’s weddings, and in 2011 Chelsea referred to Newmyer as her “best friend.”  In numerous emails, Chelsea’s mom, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, actively promoted Newmyer and attempted to assist her in securing Defense Department contracts.

Secretary Clinton put Newmyer in contact with Michèle Flournoy, then-President Barack Obama’s undersecretary of defense, according to the emails from Clinton’s private email server released by the Department of State under a lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.  Hillary followed up in a July 19, 2009 email, asking Newmyer, “By the way, did the DOD contract work out?”

ONA was supposed to work on complicated future warfare scenarios when it was originally set up in the 1970s.  The think tank’s first director, Andrew Marshall, was adored by a coterie of ONA staff. He was called “Yoda,” after the “Star Wars” series, adding to his mystique. Marshall lasted in the DOD post for 42 years and retired at the age of 93 in 2015.


In 2016, Lovinger sent a series of memos to James H. Baker, ONA’s new director, raising many problems Baker “inherited” from Marshall, including the use of contractors. ONA has a reputation for issuing “‘sweet-heart contracts’ to a privileged few,” Lovinger told Baker in a Sept. 30, 2016 email chain.


ONA’s leadership, led by Baker, did not take kindly to Lovinger’s warnings and allegedly retaliated against the staffer, according to Sean Bigley, a federal security clearance attorney who also represents him.  Baker suspended Lovinger’s security clearance in May for “security infractions,” and launched numerous investigations.  The suspension came after Lovinger had been detailed to the National Security Council. He was removed from the National Security Council after losing his security clearance, and now languishes inside a Defense Department satellite office doing busy work.

In a Sept. 13, 2017 letter to DOD officials, Bigley charged: “A review of the ‘case file’ in this matter illuminates a picture of intentional whistleblower retaliation against Mr. Lovinger; personal and political vendettas against Lovinger by Baker …”  Although Lovinger has since been exonerated of all the accusations, he still faces the possibility of a revocation of his clearance. His case is currently pending before Defense Department officials.

In a recent move, Baker decided to “reclassify” Lovinger’s ONA position to one that now requires new skills he doesn’t possess.  Bigley complained about this new act of alleged retaliation in a Sept. 21 letter to the DOD acting general counsel:  “The practical effect of Baker’s plan, if executed, is that Mr. Lovinger will become a surplus employee and will be terminated; he does not possess the skill set applicable to the proposed reclassification.” Lovinger is the only staff member Baker has “reclassified,” according to Bigley.

One of Lovinger’s main complaints about ONA was that many of the reports contractors wrote imparted very little new information to the think tank. “Over the years ONA’s analytic staff has expressed how they learn very little from many (if not most) of our often very thin and superficial contractor reports,” he wrote in the Sept. 30, 2016 email. 

Some of Long Term Strategy Group’s reports bear out Lovinger’s critique. A September 2010 Long Term Strategy Group report, titled “Trends in Elite American Attitudes Toward War,” came to the astounding conclusion that, “American intellectuals have for the last century held considerably more cosmopolitan views than their non-intellectual counterparts.”  Another Long Term Strategy Group report was “On the Nature of Americans as a Warlike People.”

Lovinger also suggested in a March 3, 2017 memo to the record that contractor studies should be peer-reviewed: “There has never been an external review of these contractors’ research products,” he said, adding, “It is now clear that over several decades the office transferred millions of dollars to inexperienced and unqualified contractors.” 

Others outside of ONA have been even more critical of the think tank. Book critic Carlos Lozada criticized the think tank as “an opaque bureaucratic outfit,” in a Washington Post review of a book about Marshall, ONA’s founder.  University of Notre Dame Political Science Chairman Michael C. Desch said “a systematic scrutiny of [ONA’s] work is long overdue” in the December 2014 issue of  The National Interest. He recommended that ONA, “like so many now-superfluous parochial schools, should close its doors.”

On the liberal front, Middlebury Institute’s director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program, Jeffrey Lewis, wrote a scathing attack on ONA in the Oct. 24, 2014 edition of Foreign Policy Magazine. “Marshall funded a fair number of crackpots,” he charged.  Lewis cited two studies on Iraq “written by a crackpot who thinks Saddam planned the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and 9/11, and a study on ‘Islamic Warfare’ by the guy who fabricated both a Ph.D. and an interview with Barack Obama.”

Lovinger has also been critical of the revolving door at ONA, where previous government staffers went to work for ONA contractors.  Phillip Pournelle, who was ONA’s military adviser from November 2011 to December 2016, now works at Long Term Strategy Group as its “director for gaming and analysis,” according to his LinkedIn page.

Steve Rosen, also a long-time ONA consultant, was originally Newmyer’s professor at Harvard. But Newmyer and Rosen hit it off, and they “co-taught” a Harvard class together in 2006.  Newmyer and Rosen are top officers in a nonprofit they created together called the American Academy for Strategic Education, which is dedicated to educating a rising generation of strategic thinkers,” according to its website.  The organization has raised $894,000 since it began operations in 2013, according to their IRS 990 filing. The academy paid Newmyer and Rosen $45,000 each in 2015.

Since serving as president of Long Term Strategy Group, Newmyer has participated in many prestigious bodies on national security, and she was enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.  But her Ph.D. had little to do with today’s international conflicts or in contemporary military strategy. Her dissertation was on “a comparison of seminal works on strategy and statecraft from ancient China, the medieval Middle East, and early modern Europe,” according to a Harvard profile of her.

Adam Lovinger did not consent to an interview for this article. The Office of Net Assessment did not reply to a DCNF inquiry.

Vindication: Obama's long form Birth Certiifcate is a proven forgery

by Dr. Orly Taitz, ESQ

 

I have been vindicated, Obama’s long form birth certificate is a proven forgery. Contact incoming AG Sessions, demand criminal charges and investigation, which foreign intelligence was involved in creating Obama’s bogus IDs

WATCH LIVE Sheriff Arpaio Obama Birth Certificate Press Conference

Here is the evidence compiled by me. Evidence of forgery, fraud, fabrication in Obama’s IDs

Additionally, I reported previously that Johanna Ahnee, whose Hawaiian birth certificate is a source document for Obama’s forged birth certificate, met me in Hawaii. She met me the evening before I and 2 experts were supposed to go to the Health Department of Hawaii to examine Obama’s original birth certificate. Johanna and another woman, whom she presented as her niece, had dinner with me and wanted to know what evidence do we have to prove that Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery. She was supposed to go with me and experts to the Department of Health.  Next morning, around 6 am, she called and said that she will not go with us. When I and experts arrived in Department of Health, we were not allowed to meet the director of Health. We were given a letter from the Assistant Attorney General, Jill Nagamine, which stated that they will not cooperate with federal subpoena and will not let us examine the original. I am sure that this was done because there is no original, just as there is no original application for the stolen Connecticut Social Security number 042-68-4425, which Obama used while residing in the White House.

Come January 20, it is time for criminal prosecution of all involved parties and there are many of them.


Update:

1. Nagamine’s husband is a Dunham-Obama family attorney. He handles Obama’s sister’s divorce from her first husband. Nagamine is an insider who worked hard to cover up this forged ID and keep the American people defrauded with no original document on file.

2. Johanna Ah’Nee’s boss is also an insider. He is listed on a committee picking Superior Court of Hawaii judges to be nominated by the governor. Think about it, why some nobody-owner of a copy and graphics shop is picking judges?

3. Savannah Guthrie was rewarded by NBC with a multi-million dollar contract and a position of a morning anchor after she claimed that she saw and touched a raised seal on Obama’s ID, which was not there.  Let’s hope that incoming AG Sessions investigates all of these people.

KS law license revocation sued by former AG Kline

Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline has filed suit in federal court to have his law license reinstated, due to procedural errors on the part of the Kansas State Supreme Court in their Oct. 2013 ruling.

Kansans for Life Executive Director Mary Kay Culp said,

“Former AG Phill Kline was willing to carry the ball further than anyone against the Kansas late-term abortion cartel, and paid the price for it. He has every right to move to get his license back.”

According to today’s story by Topeka Capitol Journal reporter Justin Wingerter,

“the Kansas Supreme Court [found]’clear and convincing evidence’ that Kline had acted unprofessionally as he pursued criminal charges against abortion providers. The violations we have found are significant and numerous, and Kline’s inability or refusal to acknowledge or address their significance is particularly troubling in light of his service as the chief prosecuting attorney for this state and its most populous county,” the Kansas Supreme Court wrote in disbarring Kline.”

Kline’s disfavor with the Supreme Court began with his office’s attempted prosecution of child rape and illegal abortions in 2003.


The state’s attorney ethics division (subject only to the Supreme Court) had pursued charges against Kline’s conduct even after their own investigative staff recommended they not do so and even after a panel recommended only a suspension.


Before the final ruling was decided, Kline had formally challenged the bias of the Supreme Court in the revocation matter and –in a notably unprecedented move–five members recused themselves, leaving only two justices and replacements to decide the matter.  Kline’s suit claims that the state Constitution requires no less than four justices may legally issue such a ruling.
 

The perception of a wrongful direction of the court was voiced by 90 state representatives and senators in a March 2011 press conference calling for the government to prosecute child rape cover-ups at Planned Parenthood instead of “persecuting” former AG Phill Kline. Legislators asserted:

  •    During the 2001-2003 time frame, Kline discovered there were 249 recorded abortions performed on children 14 years of age or under, but only 2 child abuse reports made, one from Planned Parenthood and one from the now-closed clinic of George Tiller.
  •    An unholy alliance existed in this state for 8 years between the former Governor Sebelius’ administration, the abortion industry and the Courts.
  •    Kline has been cleared by the disciplinary administrator’s own investigators, and further, his conduct has been approved by multiple judges.

It is significant that even the Supreme Court’s then-Chief Justice Kay McFarland felt compelled to write this extraordinary comment in one of the several cases surrounding the attempted prosecutions of the abortion industry:

“It appears to me that the majority invokes our extraordinary inherent power to sanction simply to provide a platform from which it can denigrate Kline for actions that it cannot find to have been in violation of any law and to heap scorn upon him for his attitude and behavior that does not rise to the level of contempt. This is the very antithesis of ‘restraint and discretion’ and is not an appropriate exercise of our inherent power.”


Wells-Fargo's 'How-To Fraud Mortgage' Manual

by Clinton Kirby

 

Wells Fargo's "How-to fraud mortgage  manual" suggests this "Too Big To Fail" bank may be going down.  Here's the link to download the actual Wells Fargo  'how-to create mortgage fraud' manual.


So, once again, the "conspiracy theory" that banks manufacture/massage/manipulate the documents they need-but don't have-in the foreclosure context has proven to be fact.  Indeed, the whistleblower that went to Naked Capitalism regarding Wells Fargo a year ago was not just, whistling Dixie, as it turns out. Wells Fargo indeed doctors/manufactures documents, and according to a lawsuit in New York, they actually have a manual on how to do it!  Naked Capitalism quotes a New York Post article about the lawsuit:

 "In a filing in New York's Southern District in White Plains for
 a local homeowner in bankruptcy, attorney Linda Tirelli described
 a 150-page Wells Fargo Foreclosure Attorney Procedures Manual
 created November 9, 2011 and updated February 24, 2012. According to
 court papers, the Manual details 'a procedure for processing
 [mortgage] notes without endorsements and obtaining endorsements
 and allonges.'"

If Wells Fargo does it, you can rest assured that the other big banks do it-after all, they have to compete! Check out this quote that gets right to the heart of the kind of thinking that causes this copycat, groupthink fraud from an article entitled "Fiduciary Duty to Cheat? Stock Market Super-Star Jim Chanos Reveals the Perverse New Mindset of Financial Fraudsters"

"Because if now, as the senior member of a bank, or the board of a
bank, I know that there are no criminal penalties for breaking the
rules, don't I have a fiduciary responsibility to my shareholders
to actually play fast and loose? Because if I get caught, that's
just the cost of doing business?" 

Yep. All the banks are doing it, not just Wells Fargo. We just don't have the other banks' manuals - yet.


Obama's Conn. Social Security Number hits Rush Limbaugh..

by Joe Kovacs {World Net Daily}


Rush Limbaugh, the nation’s top-rated radio talk-show host, briefly brought up the issue of Barack Obama’s potentially criminal use of a Connecticut-based Social Security Number, since the president has never lived in the Constitution State. While speaking with a caller named Rob about Obama’s alleged deception of citizens, Limbaugh tossed out the question: “What are your thoughts on the fact Obama’s Social Security Number is from Connecticut and he’s never been there?” 

Rob responded, “That’s what you call a red flag. A red flag is also, ‘First of all, I don’t need to give you my birth certificate,’ and then finally, ‘I’ll give you a copy,’ Oh, that’s a modern copy … We don’t need copies, we need originals.”

Rob continued, “How about releasing all of your college papers and let’s see what you really thought about America when you were in college? He’s deceiving us.” 

“That’s true,” said Limbaugh. “They don’t want [us] to see what those term papers, doctoral theses and so forth actually were about, nor do they want us to see the grades. They don’t want us to see the grades.”  Rob had originally focused on Obama’s birth certificate, which Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio has investigated and believes is a likely forgery.

“He says he was born in the United States,” said Rob. “He has not shown a genuine, authentic, viable, verifiable – in order to authenticate any document, you need to have the original.”  “Now wait just a second,” said Limbaugh. “They did release a birth certificate. Even Donald Trump said he’s satisfied with it.”

“The original? But a copy of anything you can’t be satisfied. You have to actually examine the original. … In order to have an expert authenticate it, you can’t go by a copy. You actually have to go by the ink on the paper, as well as many other things.” 

Obama’s Social Security Number was not discussed again in today’s radio exchange, but its mention is notable because few members of the national media have treaded near that subject.

 As WND reported last August, Obama’s possibly criminal use of a Connecticut-based Social Security an important issue in his quest for re-election in 2012, said Alan  Keyes,  a former  presidential candidate and ambassador in Ronald Reagan’s administration.   The first three digits of Obama’s SSN are 042. That code falls within the range of numbers for Connecticut, which according to the Social Security Administration has been 040 through 049.  “I believe that when you are confronted with a situation that is filled with these kinds of – what shall we call them – anomalies, disparities,  it is reasonable common sense to want to try to get straight answers,” said Keyes.  

“If you’re trying to ascertain whether or not somebody ought to be sitting with, as they used to say, their finger on the button of nuclear weapons that can blow up the world, their power extending to decisions that can collapse our economy, their influence extending to areas that can destroy the standards and moral conscience of our people in the eyes of the world, I think you might want to know who they were. It might be a good idea!”  

Keyes’ comments came during an online interview with Stan Solomon, as he addressed an issue that has been avoided by the White House and almost completely ignored by national news agencies.  “Let’s say that you’re trying to establish someone’s identity for the purposes of an investigation and you come across a Social Security Number that has that person coming from a state that all the other records of their life indicate they’ve never been to,” Keyes explained.

“I think you would look at that as an anomaly that suggests, among other things, that you better probe a little harder to make sure that the identity that you’re dealing with is a real identity – that it’s not something that’s been in some sense fabricated for some particular purpose, because one of the things you want to do if you’re tracking somebody down is make sure you’re tracking them down, not following some phony figment down to dead ends. That’s common sense.”

Keyes thinks there are many Americans who are aware of this Social Security Number mystery and simply can’t understand why it’s not being addressed.

“Is it incompetence? Is it cowardice?” he asks rhetorically. “Is it just indifference and nonchalance of this elite in the courts and in politics, in the Congress and elsewhere?”

Steve Davis, police chief for Southport, Ind., was a co-host on the program, chiming in, “If anyone believes Barack Obama is gonna make an identity-theft commercial soon, forget it. It’s not gonna happen.”

Keyes then went on a scathing indictment of the current crop of political candidates and their apparent unwillingness to take on the issue.

“You know there’s hardly a one of them had the guts to stand forward and speak truly to the issues that are raised by these anomalies and to address the constitutional issues that are involved in [presidential] eligibility,” he said.

“And that, it seems to me, is a big strike against you because at the end of the day if you’re not willing to respect the requirements of integrity with regard to the most potently damaging office that it is in the gift of the American people to give, then I guess you’re willing to misinform and lie to them about just about anything. Because if you don’t care whether their vote for president – the most important vote they cast – can be cast with integrity, then you don’t care whether they’re represented or not.”

Keyes continued: “I know very few – I don’t care which party label they wear – who have had respect for the people, the respect for the Constitution, the respect for the requirements of real and true representation and choice in our elections to stand forward and deal with these matters forthrightly. They’ve allowed folks like myself and others who are outside the purview of government to kind of just twist in the wind. First they called us names and then they tried to tear us down, and as the facts and other things became evident and more and more people lined up, now they’re just silent and cowering in some dark corner, unable to voice their shame. And I think that’s where they belong, most of them.”

In June 2010, WND’s Washington correspondent, Les Kinsolving, asked former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs specifically why Obama had a Connecticut-based SSN despite not having lived there, but Gibbs completely dodged the question and changed the subject, lamenting about inquiries over Obama’s birth certificate.

“There is obviously a case of fraud going on here,” said private investigator Susan Daniels. “In 15 years of having a private investigator’s license in Ohio, I’ve never seen the Social Security Administration make a mistake of issuing a Connecticut Social Security number to a person who lived in Hawaii. There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly.”

Just this week, a California lawyer who has been leading the legal effort to probe Obama’s SSN made some progress in Hawaii.

As WND reported, attorney Orly Taitz secured an order from United States District Court Magistrate Judge Richard L. Puglisi demanding representatives of the Hawaii Department of Health appear in federal court Sept. 14 to show why Taitzshould be prevented from seeing whatever original 1961 documents theagency has on record regarding Barack Obama’s birth.  To date, most national media have refused to even mention the question of Obama’s possibly fraudulent Social Security Number.

On April 27, 2011, the day Obama released a scanned image of what he claims to be his long-form birth certificate from Hawaii, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell angrily shouted down California attorney Orly Taitz to prevent her from exposing on national television what she claims is Obama’s Social Security crime.  Also in April of last year, some 11 months after WND began publicizing Obama’s Connecticut-based SSN, Bill O’Reilly of the Fox News Channel briefly addressed the issue while reading his viewer mail on the air.

Unfortunately for O’Reilly, the news anchor falsely asserted the president’s father lived in Connecticut.

In his viewer email segment April 13, 2011, O’Reilly was asked: “What about Obama having a Connecticut Social Security Number? He never lived there.” “His father lived in Connecticut for several years,” O’Reilly claimed, adding that “babies sometimes get numbers based on addresses provided by their parents.”  In reality, there is no evidence Barack Obama Sr. ever lived in Connecticut.  He left Hawaii in 1962 to study at Harvard in Massachusetts and then returned to his home country of Kenya.  When WND publicized O’Reilly’s major error,
the information vanished from the Fox News Channel’s website, as well as BillOReilly.com.

The BirtherReport.com website, responding to complaints by Fox podcast customers that O’Reilly’s Social Security claim, broadcast on Fox, had gone missing from the audio archive, trumpeted the headline: “Busted: Fox News scrubbed Bill O’Reilly’s 4/13 mailbag segment on Obama’s Social Security Number reserved for Connecticut applicants.” The site added, “Not only did Fox News scrub the podcast, they also left out the viewer email about Obama’s Social Security number at O’Reilly’s website. I report, you decide!”

Obama Birth Certificate 'Raises Questions' Says Court Justice

by William Green 

A Supreme Court Justice in Alabama has declared that, thanks to recent investigations into Barack Hussein Obama's alleged Constitutional ineligibility to be President of the United States, a filing that seeks to require an original copy of Obama's birth certificate before he would be allowed on the presidential ballot in November has raised "serious questions" about Obama's "birth certificate" -- and the possibility that it's a FORGERY.

Justice Tom Parker has filed a "special, unpublished concurrence" in the case arguing that Alabama citizen Hugh McInnish's charges of "forgery" were legitimate cause for concern, according to a report at WorldNet Daily!   In his "concurrence" opinion, Justice Parker wrote:  McInnish seeks from this court a writ of mandamus, directly ordering Beth Chapman, as secretary of state for the State of Alabama, 'to demand that [President Barack Hussein] Obama cause a certified copy of his bona-fide birth certificate be delivered to her direct from the government official who is in charge of the record in which it is stored, and to make the receipt of such a prerequisite to his name being placed on the Alabama ballot for the ... November 6, 2012, general election.'"

Justice Parker then wrote, "Mclnnish has attached certain documentation to his mandamus petition, which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the authenticity of both the 'short form' and the 'long form' birth certificates of President Barack Hussein Obama that have been made public." 

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and his "Cold Case Posse." And in the words of Sheriff Joe, when asked about his official probe into Barack Hussein Obama's eligibility to be President of the United States: "We got tons of other information that could be very shocking!" 

"I'm not going after the president to keep him off a ballot or anything else, but that could happen," Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. "I'm going at it strictly as a law-enforcement guy investigating a possible forgery and fraud. I'm sticking with that, but I'll tell you one thing. We got tons of other information that could be very shocking, too, but I'm sticking now with just the [forgery] investigation and possible criminal violations."

Sheriff Joe is also calling the media's suppression of his findings of a likely forged  presidential birth certificate and Selective Service Card "probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States."

BUT, in spite of the media "blackout," his investigation is WORKING! After Sheriff Joe released his report on the likelihood that Obama's "birth certificate" is probably fake, states are beginning to MOVE to force the issue to the forefront! The L.A. Times reports: "Weeks after Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio embraced the... contention that President Obama was born outside the U.S. and is therefore ineligible to hold office, other elected officials jumped on the bandwagon.

On Wednesday, Republican state Rep. Carl Seel's 'birther bill' passed a Senate committee on a party-line vote, the Arizona Republic reported. The bill, passed 4 to 2, would require candidates for president and vice president to submit affidavits to the Arizona secretary of state vowing that they meet the constitutional requirements to hold office, including being born in the U.S.

Although Republican state Sen. Judy Burges voted for the bill, she complained that it had been watered down, the Republic reported. An earlier version required the secretary of state to certify candidates' citizenship.

Meanwhile, Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett is expected to call for aspiring chief executives to complete a form that asks about their place of birth. 'There has been a lot of media attention devoted to this, so we wanted to make sure there is a standardized form,' spokesman Matthew Roberts told the Associated Press."


Another CASE has been filed asking State officials to REMOVE Barack Hussein Obama from the 2012 presidential ballot, because he DOES NOT meet the state's eligibility requirements -- this time, in Pennsylvania.


PLEASE, take action RIGHT AWAY to DEMAND that every Secretary of State AND Attorney General in all 50 States REMOVE the name of Barack Hussein Obama II from their States' presidential election ballots, due to his ineligibility to serve in that office under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.


OUR FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT Can't Pass an E-verify Test

by Frosty Wooldrich


If you walk up to a barn, you might say, "Something stinks in there."

If you talk to today’s teenagers, you might hear, "Hey dude, what smells?"

In Shakespeare’s time, "Something is rotten in Denmark."

Hamlet Act 1, scene 4, 87–91: The character Marcellus, and not Hamlet, is the one who coined the phrase. There's a reason he said the "State of Denmark" rather than just Denmark: the fish are rotting from the head down—all is not well at the top of the political hierarchy.

In 2012, you might say, "Something is rotten in the U.S. Congress." At this time, Americans give Congress a nine percent approval rating. That nine percent need to have their own minds checked.

Barack Obama enjoys 46 percent approval after three years of failed policies, 46 million Americans subsisting on food stamps and another 15 million unemployed. That’s for starters.

For three years, top investigators have pursued Barack Obama’s legitimacy for being president of the United States. His mother was a U.S. citizen, but his father was from Kenya. That’s in question because Obama bears zero resemblance to his purported father. Jerome Corsi wrote a book: Where’s the Birth Certificate? His evidence shows compelling facts that Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen. Lawyer Orly Taitz pursued the question all the way to a federal court in Georgia last week. Georgia State Administrative Judge Malihi ordered Obama to appear. Obama failed to attend. A retired Denver, Colorado ICE agent, John Sampson, testified that Barack Obama cannot pass an E-Verify employment check because of a fraudulent social security number made out to a man in Connecticut who died before Obama was born.

Nonetheless, no American citizen is given any other person’s social security number and no American citizen is given a social security number other than the state from which he or she resides at the time of the issuance. Barack Obama’s social security numbers starts with "042" showing that he obtained it in Connecticut. However, Barack Obama has never lived in or has he worked in or in any way been connected to the State of Connecticut.

His grandmother, however, worked for the Social Security office and the speculation remains that she stole a dead man’s number from Connecticut and gave it to Obama. Thus, compounding the fraudulent identity of Obama.

While Judge Malihi last week found Obama not guilty of fraud as to his birth certificate and allowed him to remain on the ballot for the next presidential election in Georgia, the quest of Obama’s fraudulent Social Security number looms large.

"As the U.S. Constitution allowed for every citizen to pursue success, happiness and fortune, to the best of each one's ability and desire, because of the promise that the rule of law, as opposed to the rule of man, would protect their rights and their property, so too did it draw to this country, the best the world had to offer," said Dwight Kehoe of Little Silver, New Jersey. "This is what America is and America is the U.S. Constitution. Clearly the Constitution has been under attack from the left and from the right for many years now. This past week, as Judge Malihi's obviously political ruling settled over this nation like a dark onerous cloud, one could not help but think the enemies of our democratic republic are winning in their struggle to destroy the freedoms we have for so long enjoyed."

Additionally, because Obama did not answer his subpoena to appear before court, how could he win the decision? That’s like Ali and Frasier fighting for the heavy weight title, but Ali didn’t show up, but later was pronounced the winner and Frasier the loser.

Someone must have gotten to Judge Malihi with money, threats or other persuasions. You cannot find someone innocent when they didn’t show up for the trial. Obama didn’t show up and his lawyers abdicated.

Ironically, Obama has reportedly spent $2 million to seal all his records and maintain a full time law firm to keep his records under strict secrecy.

Returning to Judge Malihi’s questionable decision, Kehoe also asked these four pertinent questions:

1. Why did the Judge make a ruling on "credibility" of the witnesses without either cross examination or appointing an expert to review the charges and testimony?

2. Why did the Judge reach out to a lower court ruling, where clearly the few people involved in that case had no clue about Article II, and ignore case after case from our own United States Supreme Court? Could it be because he was operating on an agenda as opposed to the law?

3. If the Judge was going to allow the defendant not attend or testify under oath and thereby made his ruling based upon the "defense" he provided for the defendant, why were the plaintiffs not given the opportunity to cross examine the Judge before he made his ruling?

4. Since Judge Malihi was performing as the defendant's advocate, should he not have been put under oath and questioned as to why he refused to have other experts verify that the birth certificate is a forgery and that Obama's SSN failed E-Verify instead of simply dismissing the testimony?

To that I say, "Something really stinks in the Barack Obama presidency."

Why? No matter how you cut it, obfuscate it, cover it, falsify it and evade it—Barack Obama, if he gave his social security number to a prospective employer for a check at E-Verify to determine if he is a U.S. citizen and eligible to work in this country—Barack Obama would fail.

In other words, this country has been misled, duped, lied to, scammed and buffaloed.

In this coming election, the American people must demand honesty, integrity and honor to the U.S. Constitution. That cannot occur with a president that possesses a falsified Social Security number, which leads any rational person to appreciate that one lie leads to another and that Barack Obama is a liar and he knows it. Lies can never be covered up and they will be exposed in the course of time in this free country governed by the rule of law and not of men.

It’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out in a court of law.

Faking Gold Bars..what's next?

{We have no way of testing this piece's allegations beyond what is available to the general public. Prison Planet claims that the story is bogus, citing a letter from Bullion Vault's Adrian Ash. However in response: (1) Bullion vault is not without vested interest. (2) The article does not claim that the gold bars had been hollowed out but plated. (3) The difference in density would NOT show in a 400 ounce bar as the specific gravities of gold and Tungsten are identical at 19.3. Densities differ in the third decimal place, i.e. 0.692 to 0.697, ib/in3 (Perry's Ch.E. Handbook 4th Edition) with only a 0.72% difference. Drilling the bar would be required. (4) The article does not allege that gold was traded on LBMA. (5) The Federal Reserve has admitted to GATA that it has gold swap arrangements with foreign banks that isn't public information. Much of the Fed's response has been redacted by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), a supposedly 'separate entity' ,who just happen to have access to the Fed's records. The mere existence of this rumor and the refusal of the Fed to supply complete information on its activities, is reason enough to call for a thorough audit of the system.

7-8-15 UPDATE: The New American suggests in Has the Federal Reserve Sold the Gold at Fort Knox?: "...That’s right: The Federal Reserve — the ultra-secretive central bank that controls the flow of money in the United States — apparently has monopoly control over the gold, too… since 1986, the vaults have literally been sealed shut. The seals were wax with a ribbon running through them connected to a document declaring the vaults sealed…"The Treasury Office Inspector General (OIG), which is currently responsible for the Deep Storage gold audits, has told me it is absolutely not routine to break the seals. Neither for inspection by a US Mint Director nor for the President of the United States will the seals be broken," Jansen writes…In 2010, however, the seals were broken and new, more durable plastic seals replaced the old wax ones. "

4-26-11 UPDATE: Two film reports now corroborate this story

The article is quite lengthy in developing its scenario but well worth the read. It poses some intriguing possibilities into the activities of the Federal Reserve System. Perhaps, this is why the Fed and its Congressional allies, such as Mass Rep. Barney Frank (D) have opposed Ron Paul's bill to audit the Fed while others have blocked it in the Senate. So, if the article's allegations are true, what's left to steal from the country? Just the labor of it's citizens and that's now in progress with Cap and Trade and health care reform. Economic hardship from the forced servitude of ordinary Americans, struggling against outrageous commodity prices, will be used to pay off debt incurred by its never-ending supply of treasonous politicians. - Ed.}

When I first picked up on this tale, my first reaction was that this was another urban legend. I also thought that counterfeiting a bar of gold was a technical impossibility not having spent time checking out the possibilities. I finally made myself read this more recent item because the story remained persistent and I thought enough time had elapsed for a few obvious questions to be asked.

After reading that gold and tungsten have the same density, I cracked open my handy copy of ‘The Practicing Scientist’s Handbook (1978)’ and got the exact values. The density of gold is 19.32 g/cc and the density for tungsten is 19.3. Ouch! The difference is in the forth significant digit and no one usually measures beyond three significant digits.


To do so is no big trick, but everyone is working on three digits as good enough. One would have needed a very sensitive scale and a very sensitive volumetric device able to show that you were a few grams short on every ten or twenty kilos you were measuring.

The bottom line is that someone made a business out of looting the flow of gold somewhere along its transfer path. Done right, you would simply be in position to swap out replacement bars as needed. This means a cabal of employees was involved in some way or the other. It may even have begun with a single bar. The bar purchased outright was needed to make a dozen or more new bars with proper serial numbers. Then when the real bars were shipped with correct serial numbers, the switch took place. One could then produce a much larger number of bars. In short order you could switch out shipments without any fuss at all.

It will require a full audit of every bar in existence to find out how much has been stolen.

Anyway, before anyone gets excited about all this, it's long overdue for the globe to quit maintaining a gold reserve as if it has anything to do with reserve banking. Canada exited that game decades ago and no one much cares.

Whoever was involved has had ample time to hide and time during the looting process to create excellent escape plans.

In a way this is almost funny. You would have thought that the USA had been embarrassed enough this past year. When markets crash, it's normal for the accumulation of bad acts to become apparent and very public. This bit of skullduggery will not be surpassed for a century or two so I do not think we have to be worried about what is next.

It is difficult to think that this was ever a sanctioned operation because institutional memory would make sure that no fake gold ever went out of country. Most likely a key player retired or died and that was that.

It's one thing to counterfeit a twenty or hundred dollar bill. The amount of financial damage is usually limited to a specific region and only affects dozens of people and thousands of dollars. Secret Service agents quickly notify the banks on how to recognize these phony bills and retail outlets usually have procedures in place (such as special pens to test the paper) to stop their proliferation.

But what about gold? This is the most sacred of all commodities because it is thought to be the most trusted, reliable and valuable means of saving wealth.

A recent discovery -- in October of 2009 -- has been suppressed by the main stream media but has been circulating among the "big money" brokers and financial kingpins and is just now being revealed to the public. It involves the gold in Fort Knox -- the US Treasury gold -- that is the equity of our national wealth. In short, millions (with an "m") of gold bars are fake!

Who did this? Apparently our own government.

Background

In October of 2009 the Chinese received a shipment of gold bars. Gold is regularly exchanged between countries to pay debts and to settle the so-called balance of trade. Most gold is exchanged and stored in vaults under the supervision of a special organization based in London, the London Bullion Market Association (or LBMA). When the shipment was received, the Chinese government asked that special tests be performed to guarantee the purity and weight of the gold bars. In this test, four small holed are drilled into the gold bars and the metal is then analyzed.

Officials were shocked to learn that the bars were fake. They contained cores of tungsten with only an outer coating of real gold. What's more, these gold bars, containing serial numbers for tracking, originated in the US and had been stored in Fort Knox for years. There were reportedly between 5,600 to 5,700 bars, weighing 400 oz. each, in the shipment!

At first many gold experts assumed the fake gold originated in China, the world's best knock-off producers. The Chinese were quick to investigate and issued a statement that implicated the US in the scheme.

According to the Chinese investigation, the balance of this 1.3 million to 1.5 million 400 oz tungsten cache was also gold plated and then allegedly "sold" into the international market. Apparently, the global market is literally "stuffed full of 400 oz salted bars". Perhaps as much as 600-billion dollars worth.

An obscure news item originally published in the N.Y. Post [written by Jennifer Anderson] in late Jan. 04 perhaps makes sense now:

DA investigating NYMEX executive Manhattan, New York, --Feb. 2, 2004. A top executive at the New York Mercantile Exchange is being investigated by the Manhattan district attorney. Sources close to the exchange said that Stuart Smith, senior vice president of operations at the exchange, was served with a search warrant by the district attorney's office last week. Details of the investigation have not been disclosed, but a NYMEX spokeswoman said it was unrelated to any of the exchange's markets. She declined to comment further other than to say that charges had not been brought. A spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney's office also declined comment."

The offices of the Senior Vice President of Operations -- NYMEX -- is exactly where you would go to find the records [serial number and smelter of origin] for EVERY GOLD BAR ever PHYSICALLY settled on the exchange. They are required to keep these records. These precise records would show the lineage of all the physical gold settled on the exchange and hence "prove" that the amount of gold in question could not have possibly come from the U.S. mining operations -- because the amounts in question coming from U.S. smelters would undoubtedly be vastly bigger than domestic mine production.

No one knows whatever happened to Stuart Smith. After his offices were raided he took "administrative leave" from the NYMEX and he has never been heard from since. Amazingly, there never was any follow up on in the media on the original story as well as ZERO developments ever stemming from D.A. Morgenthau's office who executed the search warrant.

Are we to believe that NYMEX offices were raided, the Sr. V.P. of operations then takes leave -- all for nothing?

The revelations of additional fake gold bars explains another highly unusual story that also happened in 2004:

LONDON, April 14, 2004 (Reuters) -- NM Rothschild & Sons Ltd., the London-based unit of investment bank Rothschild [ROT.UL], will withdraw from trading commodities, including gold, in London as it reviews its operations, it said on Wednesday. Interestingly, GATA's Bill Murphy speculated about this back in 2004;

What is the GLD?

GLD is a short form for Good London Delivery. The London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) has defined "good delivery" as a delivery from an entity which is listed on their delivery list or meets the standards for said list and whose bars have passed testing requirements established by the association and updated from time to time. The bars have to be pure for AU in an area of 995.0 to 999.9 per 1000. Weight, Shape, Appearance, Marks and Weight Stamps are regulated as follows:

Weight: minimum 350 fine ounces AU; maximum 430 fine ounces AU, gross weight of a bar is expressed in troy ounces, in multiples of 0.025, rounded down to the nearest 0.025 of a troy ounce.

Dimensions: the recommended dimensions for a Good Delivery gold bar are: Top Surface: 255 x 81 mm; Bottom Surface: 236 x 57 mm; Thickness: 37 mm.

Fineness: the minimum 995.0 parts per thousand fine gold. Marks: Serial number; Assay stamp of refiner; Fineness (to four significant figures); Year of manufacture (expressed in four digits).

After reviewing their prospectus yet again, it becomes pretty clear that GLD was established to purposefully deflect investment dollars away from legitimate gold pursuits and to create a stealth, cesspool/catch-all, slush-fund and a likely destination for many of these fake tungsten bars where they would never see the light of day -- hidden behind the following legalese "shield" from the law:

[Excerpt from the GLD prospectus on page 17]

"Gold bars allocated to the Trust in connection with the creation of a Basket may not meet the London Good Delivery Standards and, if a Basket is issued against such gold, the Trust may suffer a loss. Neither the Trustee nor the Custodian independently confirms the fineness of the gold bars allocated to the Trust in connection with the creation of a Basket. The gold bars allocated to the Trust by the Custodian may be different from the reported fineness or weight required by the LBMA's standards for gold bars delivered in settlement of a gold trade, or the London Good Delivery Standards, the standards required by the Trust. If the Trustee nevertheless issues a Basket against such gold, and if the Custodian fails to satisfy its obligation to credit the Trust the amount of any deficiency, the Trust may suffer a loss."

The Gold Antitrust Action Committee (GATA) is an organization which has been nipping at the heels of the US Treasury Federal Reserve for several years now. The basis of GATA's accusations is that these institutions, in coordination with other complicit centralbanks and the large gold trading investment banks in the US, have been manipulating the price of gold for decades.

The Federal Reserve knows but is apparently part of the scheme

Earlier this year GATA filed a second Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Federal Reserve System for documents from 1990 to date having to do with gold swaps, gold swapped, or proposed gold swaps.

On Aug. 5, The Federal Reserve responded to this FOIA request by adding two more documents to those disclosed to GATA in April 2008 from the earlier FOIA request. These documents totaled 173 pages, many parts of which were redacted (blacked out). The Fed's response also noted that there were 137 pages of documents not disclosed that were alleged to be exempt from disclosure.

GATA appealed this determination on Aug. 20. The appeal asked for more information to substantiate the legitimacy of the claimed exemptions from disclosure and an explanation on why some documents, such as one posted on the Federal Reserve Web site that discusses gold swaps, were not included in the Aug. 5 document release.

In a Sept. 17, 2009, letter on Federal Reserve System letterhead, Federal Reserve governor Kevin M. Warsh completely denied GATA's appeal. The entire text of this letter can be examined at http://www.gata.org/files/GATAFedResponse-09-17-2009.pdf.

The first paragraph on the third page is the most revealing.

"In connection with your appeal, I have confirmed that the information withheld under exemption 4 consists of confidential commercial or financial information relating to the operations of the Federal Reserve Banks that was obtained within the meaning of exemption 4. This includes information relating to swap arrangements with foreign banks on behalf of the Federal Reserve System and is not the type of information that is customarily disclosed to the public. This information was properly withheld from you."

The above statement is an admission that the Federal Reserve has been involved with the fake gold bar swaps and that it refuses to disclose any information about its activities!

Why use tungsten?

If you are going to print fake money you need to have the special paper, otherwise the bills don't feel right and can be easily detected by special pens that most merchants and banks use. Likewise, if you are going to fake gold bars you had better be sure they have the same weight and properties of real gold.

In early 2008 millions of dollars in gold at the central bank of Ethiopia turned out to be fake. What were supposed to be bars of solid gold turned out to be nothing more than gold-plated steel. They tried to sell the stuff to South Africa and it was sent back when the South Africans noticed this little problem.

The problem with making good-quality fake gold is that gold is remarkably dense. It's almost twice the density of lead, and two-and-a-half times more dense than steel. You don't usually notice this because small gold rings and the like don't weigh enough to make it obvious, but if you've ever held a larger bar of gold, it's absolutely unmistakable: The stuff is very, very heavy.

The standard gold bar for bank-to-bank trade, known as a "London good delivery bar" weighs 400 troy ounces (over thirty-three pounds), yet is no bigger than a paperback novel. A bar of steel the same size would weigh only thirteen and a half pounds.

According to gold expert, Theo Gray, the problem is that there are very few metals that are as dense as gold, and with only two exceptions they all cost as much or more than gold.

The first exception is depleted uranium, which is cheap if you're a government, but hard for individuals to get. It's also radioactive, which could be a bit of an issue.

The second exception is a real winner: tungsten. Tungsten is vastly cheaper than gold (maybe $30 dollars a pound compared to $12,000 a pound for gold right now). And remarkably, it has exactly the same density as gold, to three decimal places. The main differences are that it's the wrong color, and that it's much, much harder than gold. (Very pure gold is quite soft, you can dent it with a fingernail.)

A top-of-the-line fake gold bar should match the color, surface hardness, density, chemical, and nuclear properties of gold perfectly. To do this, you could start with a tungsten slug about 1/8-inch smaller in each dimension than the gold bar you want, then cast a 1/16-inch layer of real pure gold all around it. This bar would feel right in the hand, it would have a dead ring when knocked as gold should, it would test right chemically, it would weigh *exactly* the right amount, and though I don't know this for sure, I think it would also pass an x-ray fluorescence scan, the 1/16" layer of pure gold being enough to stop the x-rays from reaching any tungsten. You'd pretty much have to drill it to find out it's fake.

Such a top-quality fake London good delivery bar would cost about $50,000 to produce because it's got a lot of real gold in it, but you'd still make a nice profit considering that a real one is worth closer to $400,000.

What's going to happen now?

Politicians like Ron Paul have been demanding that the Federal Reserve be more transparent and open up their records for public scrutiny. But the Fed has consistently refused, stating that these disclosures would undermine its operation. Yes, it certainly would!

UPDATE: Audit of Fed Reserve Amendment Passes!

"In an unprecedented defeat for the Federal Reserve, an amendment to audit the multi-trillion dollar institution was approved by the House Finance Committee with an overwhelming and bipartisan 43-26 vote on Thursday afternoon despite harried last-minute lobbying from top Fed officials and the surprise opposition of Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who had previously been a supporter.

The measure, cosponsored by Reps. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), authorizes the Government Accountability Office to conduct a wide-ranging audit of the Fed's opaque deals with foreign central banks and major U.S. financial institutions. The Fed has never had a real audit in its history and little is known of what it does with the trillions of dollars at its disposal
. "

The manufacture of fake gold bars goes back years and, because of this, it is not likely that the originator of this scheme will ever be revealed or brought to justice. Meanwhile the world is just beginning to learn that much of its national reserves of gold may be fake. If more testing reveals that this gold was guaranteed by Fort Knox and the US Treasury then perhaps they will demand an exchange for "real" gold -- wouldn't you?

This is all happening at a time when the US economy is at its lowest and most vulnerable. The effects could be devastating.

Some investors are already selling gold commodities before these facts are widely known. They are investing instead in silver -- the next best metal. This will undoubtedly drive silver prices up.

According to Jim Willie, 24 year market analyst and Ph.D in statistics, "The bust cometh, and it will be spectacular. The stories told in the press will be peculiar, since not told objectively. The headlines might be a comedy, with phony reports of foreign subterfuge, when the perpetrators are home grown."
