Riddle me this, judge Ciavarella...



So, judge Ciavarella is playing word games. He tells 20/20 that he didn't "plead guilty to kids for cash." He is guilty of kids for cash, but didn't plead guilty to it. That's exactly what that means. He did not say that he didn't sentence kids for cash, he said he didn't plead guilty to it. We've seen these word games from lawyers from many cases, including this one. Like when they knew charges were going to be brought against them, they quickly put out the word in the media that they "were never charged with anything." Get it in the press before you're charged, then it's a true statement. After they were charged, of course, they never said: "NOW...we were charged with something." Do you see how these word games work? Like when Jill "Full Knowledge and Consent" Moran said individuals attempted, without Moran’s "FULL knowledge and consent", to use Moran to facilitate frauds. That means, according to logic and the English language, that they had her knowledge and consent...just not her FULL knowledge and consent. She should have said she didn't have "ANY knowledge and consent"!!! Not "FULL knowledge and consent". If you don't think every word out of these criminals' mouths and their lawyers mouths aren't carefully crafted...EVERY SINGLE WORD...then I have a wilderness camp to sell to you!!!

Riddle me this judge Ciavarella: if you didn't sentence kids for cash, why did Judge Grim clear the records and void the adjudications of hundreds of juveniles who appeared before you? That's a good question judge Ciavarella, isn't it? A question you weren't asked and one you won't answer!

Also, attorney Powell is accused of participating in $2.6 million in kickbacks to the corrupt judges pertaining to sending them to his juvie center. Powell claims the judges were extorting the money from him.

Riddle me this: if the judges were extorting money from Powell, why did he engage in other activites with them such as the W-CAT townhouse project and why did Powell dock his yacht "Reel Justice" at their condo of corruption in Florida? Does that sound like the actions of someone who was being extorted by them? I suppose when someone's extorting millions from you, you park your yacht at their condo and go into a townhouse deal with them! Something doesn't sound right, and someone is lying.

And why is judge Ciavarella flapping his mouth about everything on TV and in print...except Powell accusing him of extorting him?

Please stop insulting our intelligence, with these carefully worded phrases like: "FULL knowledge and consent", "didn't plead guilty to...", and "my client hasn't been charged with anything (YET!!!!)"!!!!!!!!!

However, Media Matters listens to Limbaugh everyday and has documented numerous examples of him spewing offensive commentary and basic misstatements of fact.

...and let's not forget the "Democracy Terrorists", the e-vote machine companies


Remember when you said we were "conspiracy theorists" because we were saying electronic voting machines were easily hacked and were being hacked for elections? Now the CIA is agreeing with us. And GODDAMMIT, don't say you weren't calling us "conspiracy theorists"!!! Maybe NOW, will you watch the videos below, including the HBO movie "Hacking Democracy"??? Election Day should be a paid national holiday with all the citizens volunteering to count reliable paper ballots. You don't hear any politicians proposing to make the most important day in America a paid day off, do you? Don't you think that's strange?

I told you! I've been telling you, that I've had AIG auto insurance forever, and suddenly, I have "21st Century Insurance"! Here's your proof - here's a letter from them. Keep in mind, I have not seen anywhere in any form of news, that AIG auto insurance is now "21st Century Insurance". Nothing in the news at all! Also? I did NOTHING, and suddenly I have "21st Century Insurance", shouldn't I have to switch myself? Or do something? So, now I have "21st Century Insurance"!!!

Here's a few questions:

1. Does AIG Auto Insurance still exist?
2. How long did 21st Century Auto Insurance exist?
3. If AIG Auto Insurance still exists, why did they switch me without asking to 21st Century?
4. Was AIG Auto Insurance getting bailout money? (21st Century says they aren't, but was AIG?)
5. How can a company switch its customers to another company without asking them?
6. Are the rates the same for all the customers?
7. Is this legal?

Here's their website. I don't see anything about their history, do you? How long have they existed? In the below letter, they thank me for my "continued loyalty and support". What continued loyalty and support??? Isn't this how the financial mess started? Selling things behind the scenes like mortgages??? Without asking or telling anyone???

Anthony J DeSantis
President and CEO
March 27, 2009

Dear 21st Century Insurance Policyholders:

On behalf of all the employees of 21st Century Insurance and Financial Services (21st Century Insurance), I first want to thank you for your continued loyalty and support during these challenging times.

I would like to take a moment to address some items that have undoubtedly created a level of uneasiness and frustration for many of our customers. Because of the tremendous support and cooperation from the United States government and its taxpayers, our parent company, AIG, has been able to continue its operations as a world-class provider of insurance services. However, with this support comes a high-level of attention to all of AIG's activities.

It is important to clarify that although the insurance companies affiliated with the 21st Century Insurance brand are subsidiaries of AIG, they have not accessed or needed any of the Federal Reserve borrowings to fund their operations. Nor have they received any capital contribution from any AIG company to support their operations. 21st Century Insurance is an organization of 6,500 employees whose mission is to deliver outstanding value and service for your auto insurance needs – a mission we are striving to achieve every day.

The insurance companies affiliated with 21st Century Insurance, which underwrite and provide coverage under your policies, are financially strong and continue to deliver outstanding coverage, service and payment of claims to all of our customers. The assets of the insurance companies are protected by state laws for the benefit of policyholders.

Additionally, AIG recently announced the formation of a general insurance holding company called AIU Holdings, Inc. This move will help enhance and protect the value of those property and casualty companies for all its stakeholders. The organization will include the Commercial Insurance Group, Foreign General unit, and other property and casualty groups. 21st Century Insurance will also be part of this new, separate organization.

We genuinely appreciate your business. At 21st Century Insurance, we are focused on putting you, the customer, first, and we look forward to providing you with the great coverage and award-winning service that you deserve.

Sincerely,
Anthony J. DeSantis




Lawmakers and public officials in California, Ohio, South Carolina, Missouri, Washington and other states are attempting to crack down on the controversial practice known as payday lending. Payday loans are short-term loans or cash advances secured by a post-dated check. The annual interest rate for these loans can be as high as 400 percent, ten times the highest credit card rates. Today, it’s a $40 billion industry with more than 22,000 stores. We speak with journalist Daniel Brook about his Harper’s Magazine article, “Usury Country," and with Ginna Green of the Center for Responsible Lending.

Michelle "fucky-sucky five dollah" Malkin Indirectly Admits Newspapers Aren't Liberal

(does anyone else find it ironic that Asian-looking Michelle Malkin works for a racist "news" channel and acts like a racist, when others could be racist against her for looking "Asian"??? I think that's called BREATHTAKING HYPOCRISY!)

"fucky-sucky five dollah" - you have to be an absolute BIRD BRAIN to watch FOX "news"! (note: a friend of mine who was in Vietnam said Vietnamese whores used to go up to the U.S. soldiers and say: "FUCKY-SUCKY FIVE DOLLAH")

So, someone in congress proposes to bailout newspapers, and who is against this, because the "free press" might change? Rightwing pundits! So, when push comes to shove, they want the newspapers to stay the same! The same newspapers they call "liberal" and the "drive-by media", etc... So it's all a big sham, like I've been telling you forever. The newspapers aren't liberal. The proof is rightwingers defending the newspapers.

If Michelle Malkin and FOX "news" thought newspapers were liberal, they wouldn't give a shit if a bailout changed them! Some people say Michelle Malkin's website gets a lot of hits. I don't believe it. We saw how the claims of popularity of rightwingers work!

(Note: the original video of Michelle "fucky sucky five dollah" Malkin on newspaper bailouts is no longer on the internet, so I replaced it with her claiming with zero evidence that John Kerry purposely shot himself during the Vietnam War, see below:)



And Michelle Malkin has a website named "Hot Air". Isn't that a derogatory term, as in: "You're full of HOT AIR!" Am I missing something? How can she be this DUMB? That's like calling your website: "I Am Full Of SHIT"! Maybe all of them - Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Malking, Ann Coulter, O'Reilly, etc...should ALL call their websites "HOT AIR", like "HOT AIR I", "HOT AIR II", HOT AIR III"...you get the picture.

DEAR Mr. Liddy, (click below for the NYTimes article)

Dear A.I.G., I Quit!

In a new article in Rolling Stone Magazine, journalist Matt Tabbi takes an in-depth look at the story behind AIG. “The reality is that the worldwide economic meltdown and the bailout that followed were together a kind of revolution, a coup d’état,” writes Taibbi. “They cemented and formalized a political trend that has been snowballing for decades: the gradual takeover of the government by a small class of connected insiders, who used money to control elections, buy influence and systematically weaken financial regulations.”

20th Anniversary of Exxon Valdez Oil Spill


Today marks the twentieth anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, one of the worst environmental disasters in history. The Exxon Valdez spilled between 11 and 38 million gallons of crude oil into the fishing waters of Prince William Sound. The spill contaminated more than 1,200 miles of Alaska’s shoreline and killed hundreds of thousands of seabirds and marine animals. It also dealt a staggering blow to the residents of local fishing towns, and the effects of the disaster are still being felt today. We speak with Riki Ott, a community activist, marine toxicologist, former commercial salmon fisherma’am and author of two books on the spill. Her latest is Not One Drop: Betrayal and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Spill.

20 Years After Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, Alaskan Coastline Remains Contaminated, Residents Still Struggle for Justice



Stick Your Damn Hand In It: 20th Birthday of the Exxon Valdez Lie


Greg Palast: The official story is, "Drunken Skipper Hits Reef." But don't believe it, Mr. Souter. Alaska's Native lands and coastline were destroyed by a systematic fraud motivated by profit-crazed penny-pinching.

Here's the unreported story, the one you won't get tonight on the Petroleum Broadcast System:

It begins in 1969 when big shots from Humble Oil and ARCO (now known as Exxon and British Petroleum) met with the Chugach Natives, owners of the most valuable parcel of land on the planet: Valdez Port, the only conceivable terminus for a pipeline that would handle a trillion dollars in crude oil.

These Alaskan natives ultimately agreed to sell the Exxon consortium this astronomically valuable patch of land -- for a single dollar.

The Natives refused cash. Rather, in 1969, they asked only that the oil companies promise to protect their Prince William Sound fishing and seal hunting grounds from oil.

In 1971, Exxon and partners agreed to place the Natives' specific list of safeguards into federal law. These commitments to safety reassured enough Congressmen for the oil group to win, by one vote, the right to ship oil from Valdez.

The oil companies repeated their promises under oath to the US Congress.

The spill disaster was the result of Exxon and partners breaking every one of those promises - cynically, systematically, disastrously, in the fifteen years leading up to the spill.

Forget the drunken skipper fable. As to Captain Joe Hazelwood, he was below decks, sleeping off his bender. At the helm, the third mate would never have collided with Bligh Reef had he looked at his Raycas radar. But the radar was not turned on. In fact, the tanker's radar was left broken and disasbled for more than a year before the disaster, and Exxon management knew it. It was just too expensive to fix and operate.

Then after it's too late, they'll do a study for a billion dollars and say, "Chinese condoms caused infertility in men" or something like that. I'm telling you IDIOTS right now for FREE that this is going to be BAAAAAAAD!!!!! Then, while all that's going on, corporate America will be doing 100 other things just like this...like whack-a-mole! Stupid Americans with a government that doesn't give a shit about anything and corporations that don't give a shit about anything! What a greedy GREEDY country!

So, I guess if we have a "terrorist" strike during Obama's presidency, there will be a double-standard with rightwing media and Republicans. That double-standard is this: "If a Republican is president during a terror attack, no one can acknowledge this or they're 'unpatriotic' or 'against the troops' or any of their straw man arguments.

And that’s what happened. The Geithner plan is a complicated, disguised variant on the same idea. It’s the zombie that you keep killing, and it just keeps coming back.

Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) LAUNCHED A SEARCH TOOL FOR UNCOVERED GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS as part of our celebration of Sunshine Week. The search tool is sophisticated technology that allows the public to closely examine thousands of pages of documents we have pried loose from secretive government agencies. In addition, we're posting scores of never-before seen documents on several controversial government initiatives, including the FBI's Investigative Data Warehouse and DCS 3000 surveillance program, and the Department of Homeland Security's Automated Targeting System and ADVISE data-mining project.

Over the past two and a half years, EFF has filed hundreds of FOIA requests and made thousands of pages of once-secret documents available to the public on our website. Our FOIA work has revealed details about the FBI's improper use of National Security Letters, uncovered the Department of Homeland Security's internal policies on searching and interrogating travelers at the border, and revealed information about the technology the government uses to wiretap cell phones.

The release of these new documents is just one step in the ongoing fight for greater government transparency. EFF will continue to pressure the government to remember its
obligations to transparency and to the public.

Shocking atrocities of Israelis against Palestinians. Live footage of Palestinian doctor on live Israeli television while his daughters are being killed. YOU paid for this with your tax money. And I seriously doubt if Zionist controlled ANBCBSNNX covered this REAL news. These claims are coming from the Israeli soldiers themselves, and the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Ummm.....I told you so!!!



The Israeli Military Advocate General has for the first time called for criminal inquiries into the conduct of Israeli troops in Gaza. The request came in response to soldiers’ testimonies that described loose rules of engagement, troops firing on unarmed civilians, and troops intentionally vandalizing property during the three-week assault on Gaza. We speak to Gaza-based journalist Amira Hass of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Israel Promises Internal Probe After Soldiers Describe Civilian Killings, Lax Rules of Engagement in Gaza Attack

Palestinian gynecologist and peace advocate Dr. Ezzeldeen Abu al-Aish speaks to Democracy Now! producer Anjali Kamat and Jacquie Soohen of Big Noise Films in his home in Jabaliya, Gaza, where Israeli shells killed three of his daughters and a niece two months ago. Walking through his daughters’ room, he points out the remnants from the attack: blood-stained walls, books, clothes, hand-drawn pictures, gaping holes that were once windows, burned-out bits of computers, twisted pieces of metal, destroyed cupboards, shattered glass, and shrapnel.

Here's what Israeli Zionists think of the Palestinian people, from their own mouths:

“The Palestinians are like crocodiles, the more you give them meat, they want more”…. Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel at the time - August 28, 2000. Reported in the Jerusalem Post August 30, 2000

“[The Palestinians are] beasts walking on two legs.” Menahim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, “Begin and the Beasts”. New Statesman, 25 June 1982.

“The Palestinians” would be crushed like grasshoppers … heads smashed against the boulders and walls.” Isreali Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988

“When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle.” Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.

“We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves.” Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.

“One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” — Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, Feb. 27, 1994 [Source: N.Y. Times, Feb. 28, 1994, p. 1]

No attention is being paid to the fact that AIG’s funneling of tens of billions of dollars in taxpayer bailout money to other banks. "Perp Walks Instead of Bonuses": Veteran Journalist Robert Scheer on AIG Bonuses, the "Backdoor Bailout" and Why Obama Should Fire Geithner, Summers

Did commenter extraordinaire, the mysterious ž, figure it all out:
Is AIG laundering bailout money actually intended for Goldman Sachs and then to the ultimate benefit of big honcho David Rockefeller ?

AIG the culprit? NO.. Here's the real beneficiary of the bailout money.

If AIG fell, Goldman Sachs was going to be hurt, badly, because of the counter party issue.

The original bailout last fall to AIG was pushed by Paulson, Bushie Sec. of Treasury.
Who used to be CEO of Goldman Sachs.
Who was also a mentor to Geithner.

Lehman Brothers was a rival of Goldman Sachs. Lehman was allowed to sink.

The bailout program, designed by Paulson to give about 12 billion indirectly to Goldman
Sachs
via AIG,
is being "managed" by...Neel Kashkari, a former Goldman Sachs VP.

Geithner was a protege of Robert Rubin.
Rubin was Clinton's Sec. Treasury who pushed for the deregulation which led to this mess.
Rubin came to Treasury job from.................Goldman Sachs.

Geithner's Chief of Staff, Mark Patterson, was a lobbyist for...Goldman Sachs.

The new AIG CEO, Liddy, who was appointed by Paulson, came from Goldman Sachs.

plunger adds:
I’ve personally observed that all money and power flow to David Rockefeller in the United States…that he is indeed the King.

Connect the dots through Congress/Treasury/The FED (one and the same under the ownership and control of David Rockefeller) through AIG to Goldman - and then on to the control of Rockefeller from there.

The ridiculous secrecy about use of public funds to support publicly traded companies is EVIDENCE OF CRIMINALITY AND COVERUP.

Connect All The Dots

Geithner is CLEARLY Rockefeller’s agent…and lying his ass off…poorly.


AIG was scheduled to make millions of dollars in bonus payments has been public knowledge for many months -- since well before Geithner pressured Chris Dodd to insert an exception into executive compensation limits for already-existing employment contracts.

* Chris Dodd -- advocated full-scale, no-exceptions limits on executive compensation for bailed-out companies
* Obama administration -- supported limits but advocated exceptions for already-existing employment contracts
* GOP leaders -- opposed all executive compensation limits as Socialist tyranny

Republicans and executive compensation limits

The dishonest "Blame Dodd" scheme from Treasury officials


Rightwing media for AIG bonuses; GOP leadership against AIG bonuses.

Special Commentary by Big Dan: "Now that AIG bonuses of $165 Million have got your attention, let's shift that outrage to spending $410 Million PER DAY in Iraq & Afghanistan!!! The AIG bonuses are a DROP IN THE OCEAN compared to what we're spending in these countries!!! And how come we have endless money for bailouts, but no money for health care for all Americans and more college aid?"

"Perp Walks Instead of Bonuses": Veteran Journalist Robert Scheer on AIG Bonuses, the "Backdoor Bailout" and Why Obama Should Fire Geithner, Summers

ROBERT SCHEER: Yes. I mean, first of all, let me say, the bonuses—I think it’s an important glimpse into the cesspool that is Wall Street, but it’s a side show, you know, and I know it’s confusing—millions, billions, trillions. But the real scandal is—the money—AIG is basically a shell game at this point, and they’re passing the money through AIG to the big banks, the former stockbrokers and so forth. Goldman Sachs got the biggest amount, $12.5 billion. The head of AIG was on the board of directors and the head of the audit committee for Goldman Sachs for five years. The Treasury Secretary that put this deal together, Paulson, under Bush was the head, was the CEO of Goldman Sachs. The guy who administered the TARP fund was a vice president at Goldman Sachs. The Democrat who made all of this deregulation possible, Robert Rubin, when he was Secretary of Treasury, and then Lawrence Summers who followed him, Rubin had been the head of Goldman Sachs. And they pushed through the basic deregulation that allowed these banks to become too big to allow to fail.

On Tuesday, it emerged that 11 AIG executives who had received retention bonuses of US$1 million or more had already left the company

ROBERT KUTTNER: Secretary Geithner is in bed with the wrong people in his entire approach to all of the financial rescues. The rationales that have been put forward are the most appalling thing—number one, the rationale that a contract is a contract. The UAW workers are giving up not just wages in their contracts, but retirees who have contractual guarantees to health insurance and pension benefits. Same thing happened in steel industry. If we go forward with the mortgage restructuring—mortgages are contracts—they’re going to be restructured. The idea that you can’t tell the head of AIG to not pay those bonuses is just preposterous. I mean, you could say to these workers—workers?—executives, “If you want your job, you should voluntarily forfeit these bonuses.” End of conversation.

RALPH NADER: I want people to read this remarkable document by AIG called “AIG: Is the Risk Systemic?” In other words, “We are too big to fail. We can collapse the global economy.” That is up on the website wallstreetwatch.org, wallstreetwatch.org. And if you want to see a taxpayer movement get underway, go to wallstreetwatch.org and join our email list. How many times yesterday did all these politicians talk about taxpayers, taxpayers at risk, taxpayers having to pay, and they won’t give taxpayers any facilities to organize in a political force to take this public fury that they keep talking about and move it from a burst of revulsion by tens of millions of people into a political force in Washington?
