Who is in Control ?

Post by Guardian » Mon Jul 15, 2013 4:04 pm

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) has been battling the banks the last few weeks in an effort to get 60 votes lined up for bankruptcy reform. He's losing.

On Monday night in an interview with a radio host back home, he came to a stark conclusion: the banks own the Senate.

"And the banks -- hard to believe in a time when we're facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created -- are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place," he said on WJJG 1530 AM's "Mornings with Ray Hanania." Progress Illinois picked up the quote.

Earlier Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told the Huffington Post that the most important provision of bankruptcy reform -- the authority for a bankruptcy judge to renegotiate mortgages, known as cramdown, which banks strongly oppose -- could get ripped out of the bill.

Lets keep it all in the same Family !!

Extract from "The New York Times"
"As the financial crisis entered one of its darkest phases in October, a handful of the nation’s largest banks began holding daily telephone sessions. Murmurs were already emanating from Washington about the need for a wide-ranging regulatory overhaul, and Wall Street executives girded for a fight.

Atop the agenda during their calls: how to counter an expected attempt to rein in credit-default swaps and other derivatives — the sophisticated and profitable financial instruments that were intended to limit risk but instead had helped take the economy to the brink of disaster.

The nine biggest participants in the derivatives market — including JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Bank of America — created a lobbying organization, the CDS Dealers Consortium, on Nov. 13, a month after five of its members accepted federal bailout money.

To oversee the consortium’s push, lobbying records show, the banks hired a longtime Washington power broker who previously helped fend off derivatives regulation: Edward J. Rosen, a partner at the law firm Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton.

A confidential memo Mr. Rosen drafted and shared with the Treasury Department and leaders on Capitol Hill has, politicians and market participants say, played a pivotal role in shaping the debate over derivatives regulation.

Mr. Rosen’s confidential memo, dated Feb. 10 and obtained by The New York Times, recommended that the biggest participants in the derivatives market should continue to be overseen by the Federal Reserve Board. Critics say the Fed has been an overly friendly regulator, which is why big banks favor it."

President Obama has granted himself the complete control of all communication systems within the US under an Executive Order that was publicly released on July 6th, 2012.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-off ... eM.twitter

Under the Executive Order, entitled ‘Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions’, the White House is given the ability to control all forms of private communications within the nation under the tired guise of ‘national security’.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter … in the wake of the NSA spying scandal criticized the American political system. “America has no functioning democracy,” Carter said Tuesday at a meeting of the “Atlantic Bridge” in Atlanta.

Von Gregor Peter Schmitz from Germany’s Der Spiegel seems to be the only journalist who found this event to be worth covering.

We appear to have a major problem on our hands - check out the disclosures made ( with documentary evidence ) made by Edward Snowden and the only Main Stream Media newspaper reporting on it :

Extract from the UK based "The Guardian" newspaper under the title :

"XKeyscore: NSA tool collects 'nearly everything a user does on the internet'

XKeyscore, the documents boast, is the NSA's "widest reaching" system developing intelligence from computer networks – what the agency calls Digital Network Intelligence (DNI). One presentation claims the program covers "nearly everything a typical user does on the internet", including the content of emails, websites visited and searches, as well as their metadata.

The purpose of XKeyscore is to allow analysts to search the metadata as well as the content of emails and other internet activity, such as browser history, even when there is no known email account (a "selector" in NSA parlance) associated with the individual being targeted.

Analysts can also search by name, telephone number, IP address, keywords, the language in which the internet activity was conducted or the type of browser used.

It includes "every email address seen in a session by both username and domain", "every phone number seen in a session (eg address book entries or signature block)" and user activity – "the webmail and chat activity to include username, buddylist, machine specific cookies etc".

The XKeyscore program also allows an analyst to learn the IP addresses of every person who visits any website the analyst specifies.

This top secret National Security Agency program allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Who is in the whitehouse now?

Is it true that an act of government, enacted during a declared emergency, such as "U.S. Civil War (A War between The Federal US Military and We The People) "Korea" War on Drugs, etc. that which activates the "Commander in Chief" and authorizes "Executive Orders"? The Executive Order #1 was written by Abe Lincoln is what makes me think that the two Offices held by the one man are separate and distinct titles even though they are bestowed on the one man. I would think that any act enacted during one of these emergencies would be void or voidable after the emergency is over? Looking at the “Bill of Rights” 1 thru 10 as the Constitution for “We The People” and amendments 11 thru 27 as amendments enacted during an emergency which was in place at the time of the enactment. Isn’t it time to take a look at the validity of 11 thru 27 and do some voiding and return to the “Republic Form of Government”?

I agree that all these executive orders and many of the amendments are unlawful, but the problem is in finding a mechanism by which enough people can effectively resist.

I recommend you watch (or listen to) the Monday, 10/07 Alex Jones radio broadcast, in which he interviews Michael Boldin, executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center http://tenthamendmentcenter.com. Boldin talks about James Madison's writings on using the State's legislatures to combat Federal tyranny. Very interesting. You can find the interview on YouTube, or you can subscribe to http://prisonplanet.tv

The same program also features an interview with John McAfee, the original creator of the McAfee Anti-virus software. McAfee declared his intention to release a device which will nullify NSA spying on communications.

This incident was only reported by Mainstream Media in "The Washington Post" :

" Moments before House members passed a bill to raise the debt ceiling, a woman later identified as stenographer Diane Reidy approached the microphone at the Speaker’s Lobby in a trance-like state and began to shout.

“He will not be mocked, don’t touch me, he will not be mocked,” Reidy ranted, adding, “The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God, it never was.”

Officials begin to remove Reidy as she screamed, “It never was, had it been, it would not have been….the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons, they go against God, you cannot serve two masters.”
“Praise be God, Lord Jesus Christ,” she added.

Reidy also reportedly said “A House divided cannot stand — you are all sons of the devil!”

According to Rep. Joaquin Castro, the woman “had a crazed look” on her face. “It was very disturbing for the members of Congress,” he said.

According to the Washington Post, House floor staff were “visibly shaken” by the incident and police are currently investigating the matter.

What makes the incident even more strange is that Reidy is not someone who showed up on the job recently, she has been working as an official stenographer with the Office of the Clerk for over 20 years.

According to presiding officer Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Reidy approached the platform and asked if the microphone was turned on

“For that one short tiny moment we actually had some sanity and bravery on the House Floor!” joked Daniel McAdams, labeling Reidy “the last sane person on Capitol Hill.”

The stenographer Dianne Reidy who delivered Gods message in the House of Representatives following the debt ceiling vote said that she had been working up the courage to do God's work.

'For the past 2 and 1/2 weeks, the Holy Spirit has been waking me up in the middle of the night and preparing me (through my reluctance and doubt) to deliver a message in the House Chamber,' Dianne Reidy said in a written statement.

'That is what I did last night.'

Reidy's husband Dan said that he was proud of his wife, who he called 'a sweet, level-headed wonderful woman of God'.

She does not drink, do drugs or have any medication issues, and she has been released from the hospital.

'I’m glad that I fulfilled God’s mission for me, absolutely. It lifted a tremendous burden. It was a very hard burden to carry as you can imagine,' she said in an interview with The Post.

'God was preparing her for this vote last night, because this was kind of the culmination of everything,' her husband Dan told The Post.

'This was the big one. Everybody’s there. And Dianne didn’t know what she was sharing, she didn’t know when — but she just sensed in her spirit.'
