4TH AMDT. SPYING ON AMERICANS PERMITTED BY CORPORATIONS? LAW SCHOOL 101

Appears we are living under MOB RULE of the Non Governmental Organizations. No Law applies to them.
=============================================================================================
CONSIDERING THE ENTIRE GLOBAL COMMUNITY IS "TICKED OFF" OVER THIS NSA SPYING ON EVERYONE.. the DOJ contends "the federal government cannot violate the 4th amendment as the 4th Amendment states the following: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." But they can allow private individuals/company's to spy on Americans and purchase that info for government purpose at a later date if they so deem .


Perhaps these old boyz should go back to Law School 101 and find out what ACCESSORY TO AND AFTER THE FACT means!


Noun 1. accessory after the fact - a person who gives assistance or comfort to someone known to be a felon or known to be sought in connection with the commission of a felony
accessary, accessory - someone who helps another person commit a crime
Aid and Abet

To assist another in the commission of a crime by words or conduct.

The person who aids and abets participates in the commission of a crime by performing some Overt Act or by giving advice or encouragement. He or she must share the criminal intent of the person who actually commits the crime, but it is not necessary for the aider and abettor to be physically present at the scene of the crime.

An aider and abettor is a party to a crime and may be criminally liable as a principal, an Accessory before the fact, or an accessory after the fact.

WHICH LEADS THIS ENTIRE MESS INTO THE LEGAL PARAMETERS OF Sedition

A revolt or an incitement to revolt against established authority, usually in the form of Treason or Defamation against government.

Sedition is the crime of revolting or inciting revolt against government. However, because of the broad protection of free speech under the First Amendment, prosecutions for sedition are rare. Nevertheless, sedition remains a crime in the United States under 18 U.S.C.A. 2384 (2000), a federal statute that punishes seditious conspiracy, and 18 U.S.C.A. 2385 (2000), which outlaws advocating the overthrow of the federal government by force. Generally, a person may be punished for sedition only when he or she makes statements that create a Clear and Present Danger to rights that the government may lawfully protect (schenck v. united states, 249 U.S. 47, 39 S. Ct. 247, 63 L. Ed. 470 [1919]).

The crime of seditious conspiracy is committed when two or more persons in any state or U.S. territory conspire to levy war against the U.S. government. A person commits the crime of advocating the violent overthrow of the federal government when she willfully advocates or teaches the overthrow of the government by force, publishes material that advocates the overthrow of the government by force, or organizes persons to overthrow the government by force. A person found guilty of seditious conspiracy or advocating the overthrow of the government may be fined and sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. States also maintain laws that punish similar advocacy and conspiracy against the state government.

Governments have made sedition illegal since time immemorial. The precise acts that constitute sedition have varied. In the United States, Congress in the late eighteenth century believed that government should be protected from "false, scandalous and malicious" criticisms. Toward this end, Congress passed the Sedition Act of 1798, which authorized the criminal prosecution of persons who wrote or spoke falsehoods about the government, Congress, the president, or the vice president. The act was to expire with the term of President John Adams.

The Sedition Act failed miserably. Thomas Jefferson opposed the act, and after he was narrowly elected president in 1800, public opposition to the act grew. The act expired in 1801, but not before it was used by President Adams to prosecute numerous public supporters of Jefferson, his challenger in the presidential election of 1800. One writer, Matthew Lyon, a congressman from Vermont, was found guilty of seditious libel for stating, in part, that he would not be the "humble advocate" of the Adams administration when he saw "every consideration of the public welfare swallowed up in a continual grasp for power, in an unbounded thirst for ridiculous pomp, foolish adulation, and selfish avarice" (Lyon's Case, 15 F. Cas. 1183 [D. Vermont 1798] [No. 8646]). Vermont voters reelected Lyon while he was in jail. Jefferson, after winning the election and assuming office, pardoned all persons convicted under the act.

In the 1820s and 1830s, as the movement to abolish Slavery grew in size and force in the South, Southern states began to enact seditious libel laws. Most of these laws were used to prosecute persons critical of slavery, and they were abolished after the Civil War. The federal government was no less defensive; Congress enacted seditious conspiracy laws before the Civil War aimed at persons advocating secession from the United States. These laws were the precursors to the present-day federal seditious conspiracy statutes.

In the late nineteenth century, Congress and the states began to enact new limits on speech, most notably statutes prohibiting Obscenity. At the outset of World War I, Congress passed legislation designed to suppress antiwar speech. The Espionage Act of 1917 (ch. 30, tit. 1, 3, 40 Stat. 219), as amended by ch. 75, 1, 40 Stat 553, put a number of pacifists into prison. Socialist leader eugene v. debs was convicted for making an antiwar speech in Canton, Ohio (Debs v. United States, 249 U.S. 211, 39 S. Ct. 252, 63 L. Ed. 566 [1919]). Charles T. Schenck and Elizabeth Baer were convicted for circulating to military recruits a leaflet that advocated opposition to the draft and suggested that the draft violated the Thirteenth Amendment's ban on Involuntary Servitude (Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47, 39 S. Ct. 247, 63 L. Ed. 470 [1919]). Sedition


The Obama administration has refused to declassify a secret memo from the George W. Bush presidency that justified the warrantless spying conducted by the National Security Agency (NSA).

Matthew Aid, a writer who's covered the NSA and surveillance policy, requested a copy of a 2001 Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinion by John Yoo that discussed the legal grounds for electronic spying without permission from a special federal court. The Department of Justice mostly denied Aid's Freedom of Information Act request, saying the redacted information in the OLC opinion was "classified, covered by non-disclosure provisions contained in other federal statutes, and is protected by the deliberative process privilege."

They did release 8 sentences from a 21 page memo.

Said John Yoo: "Intelligence gathering in direct support of military operations does not trigger constitutional rights against illegal searches and seizures."

In contrast, the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states the following: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Vatic Note: This article and format is a bit different than we are used to, but we are running out of time and he did a great job putting all this reseach together. Individually, it would have taken months to seek out and put each one of these up, but he has put them all together into one absolutely great big picture blog. I am duly impressed.

Now, as the reader, be prepared, as is usually the case with our blogs, to sit and read, revisit, and finish reading and go back and read again, if necessary, in order to truly understand what these Rothschilds and their "RICO" co-conspirators have done. AS we have said numerous times, this is not a fast food reader site. No shallow grabbing headlines here, this is the real McCoy and it will put it all in context.

It also links so many events and policies together with the big agenda that would otherwise be lost in the volume of information that is currently out there, much of which we have published. Book mark this and come back and read these links below and find out just how disturb, insane and dangerous this family really is to our nation, our world and our existance. There is no doubt that any war we have MUST be against these banking cartels and no one else since we are all in the same boat, or will be in 70 years when its their turn to go through this.

Every economic power of their day has had this happen to them since 1897 when this goal of global dominance blueprint was first laid out and execution on the first country began in 1917. They have weakened the powershouse nations's financial foundation and then proceeded to crash the country economically, then came the World war to finish off the raping and pillaging of what they helped to build up.

and central bankers, to convene within a month, to recommend ways to
improve the international financial architecture.

In a September 14 speech on the international financial crisis,
Clinton said he had asked Secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin and
Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan "to convene a major meeting of
their counterparts within the next 30 days to recommend ways to adapt
the international financial architecture to the 21st century."

The US Secret Service was requested to investigate Prime Bank Instrument Fraud as cited in 18 U.S.C. Sec. 471 CRIMINAL CODE LAW.

Whoever, with intent to defraud, falsely makes, forges, counterfeits, or alters any obligation or other security of the United States, shall be fined under this title ...  http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode18/usc_sec_18

US Secret Service, Omaha Ne. Field Office Agents refused to investigate alleging "our only duty is to protect the president of the United States."

Over these many past years, those who have taken the Oath to "uphold, protect and defend" have alowed themselves to become accessories to the fact of sedition while actively engaging in Treason against the Sovereign Civil Governments of the Republic States of the Union.

It is time each and every single one of us take a long hard look deep inside ourselves, step back a bit, and take a good, long, hard look at those who daily use just enough of the truth, mix enough of that old 'civil unrest' or 'stirring the heart of the savage beast' with issues which should be settled by The Candid Court of Public Opinion, Grand Jurys of the Civil Governments of each Sovereign Republic State, and class action litigations within said Republics for Remedy and Resolution.

Equally; There are some among us who, though possessing the public opinion power who would rather rouse the Public at Large with anger against the president himself rather than loading that shot gun with bird shot, and taking aim at the ones most responsible who allowed themselves to be bribed, coereced and intimidated by 'former' US House and Senate Members who lobby for foreign corporations/governments for the ability to subvert the constitution, overthrow the Sovereign Civil Governments of the states of the Union violating the Logan Act while conspiring with such as Russia and China.

Amazing! Everyone sees the forrest...but no one sees the trees? The answer has been before their eyes and everyone is too involved in hating this one, that one and someone else... or the old ego situation of " I've got information and if anyone one else has information I will keep any other information from getting out."
What is going on effects each life on this planet, therefore ALL information that is connected is in all probability relevant regardless of how it is written, made public or "how disconnected" the information is made public.

Keep in mind; Different people have different ways of doing things or seeing things, and that boys and girls is WHAT MAKES HORSE-RACING!

This overthrow of the Republics has unfolded before our very eyes.. everyone watched, sat on their hands, ate popcorn.. enjoyed 'the movie.'

It was at that time, I wrote a letter and sent a fax to Mr. Helmer to fax on to THE BANKING CONTROL GROUP advising the Banking Control Group (Bilderburgers): "YOU DID NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNTING, NOR PROVIDE FOR THE "X" FACTOR. You are 75-100 years ahead of "time"..--for your bankrupting the U.S. Treasury and Fed. R. Banking Systems."

What was THE "X" FACTOR?

THE "X" FACTOR was; The Global Computerization, lack of "skilled labor," lack of Research and Development in Medicines; Lack of Educational Proficiencies; Opposition of the Global Communities i.e., World "opinion;" Along with driving small business's out of business leaving nothing else for Corporations to gobble up which would lead to CORPORATIONS CANNIBALIZING ONE ANOTHER WHICH WOULD LEAD TO A "GLOBAL IMPLOSION; Further advising COMPUTERS CANNOT TILL THE FIELDS, RAISE THE NECESSARY PRODUCT TO FEED YOU, and WE WILL HAVE GLOBAL WAR but this time YOU WILL HAVE NO PLACE TO RUN, AND NO PLACE TO HIDE.

He attended what is now the Dwight School, then studied architecture and agriculture at Cornell University. In 1913, he met and became friends with Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. He operated a farm near the Roosevelt estate in upstate New York, specializing, like FDR, in growing Christmas trees.[2] He was concerned about distress among farmers, who comprised over a fourth of the population. In 1922 he took over the American Agriculturalist magazine, making it a voice for reclamation, conservation, and scientific farming.[1] In 1929, Roosevelt, as Governor of New York, appointed him chair of the New York State Agricultural Advisory Committee and to the state Conservation Commission. continued:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Morgenthau,_Jr.

Morgenthau resigned in mid-1945, when Truman became President and Morgenthau's advice was no longer sought. He devoted the remainder of his life to working with Jewish philanthropies, and also became a financial advisor to Israel. Tal Shahar, an Israeli moshav (agricultural community) near Jerusalem, created in 1948, was named in his honor (Morgenthau means "morning dew" in German, and so does the Hebrew name "Tal Shahar").

Morgenthau donated his diary of 840 volumes to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum.[32] He died in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1967. His son Robert M. Morgenthau was the District Attorney of New York County from 1975 to 2009.

Harry Dexter White (October 9, 1892 - August 16, 1948) was an American economist, senior U.S. Treasury department official, and an active agent of Soviet espionage.[1] He was the senior American official at the 1944 Bretton Woods conference. He dominated the conference and imposed his vision of post-war financial institutions over the objections of John Maynard Keynes, the British representative. After the war, White was a major architect of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

White was accused in 1948 of being a spy for the Soviet Union. In August 1948, White testified and defended his record to the House Un-American Activities Committee. Three days after testifying he died of a heart attack. Historians state that newly opened Soviet records show he passed secret state information to the Soviets during World War II.[2] Steil says White acted out of idealism, not as a member of the Communist Party, "not simply because he believed that the Soviet Union was a vital U.S. ally but because he also believed passionately in the success of the bold Soviet experiment with socialism." Steil says White was not a Communist party member, because, "White would not take orders from Moscow. He worked on his own terms. He joined no underground movements."[3]

John Maynard Keynes, 1st Baron Keynes,[1] CB, FBA (/ˈkeɪnz/ KAYNZ; 5 June 1883 - 21 April 1946) was a British economist whose ideas have fundamentally affected the theory and practice of modern macroeconomics, and informed the economic policies of governments. He built on and greatly refined earlier work on the causes of business cycles, and is widely considered to be one of the founders of modern macroeconomics and the most influential economist of the 20th century.[2][3][4][5] His ideas are the basis for the school of thought known as Keynesian economics, and its various offshoots.

In the 1930s, Keynes spearheaded a revolution in economic thinking, overturning the older ideas of neoclassical economics that held that free markets would, in the short to medium term, automatically provide full employment, as long as workers were flexible in their wage demands. Keynes instead argued that aggregate demand determined the overall level of economic activity, and that inadequate aggregate demand could lead to prolonged periods of high unemployment. According to Keynesian economics, state intervention was necessary to moderate "boom and bust" cycles of economic activity.[6] He advocated the use of fiscal and monetary measures to mitigate the adverse effects of economic recessions and depressions. Following the outbreak of World War II, Keynes's ideas concerning economic policy were adopted by leading Western economies. In 1942, Keynes was awarded a hereditary peerage as Baron Keynes of Tilton in the County of Sussex.[7] Keynes died in 1946, but during the 1950s and 1960s the success of Keynesian economics resulted in almost all capitalist governments adopting its policy recommendations.

Keynes's influence waned in the 1970s, partly as a result of problems that began to afflict the Anglo-American economies from the start of the decade, and partly because of critiques from Milton Friedman and other economists who were pessimistic about the ability of governments to regulate the business cycle with fiscal policy.[8] However, the advent of the global financial crisis of 2007-08 caused a resurgence in Keynesian thought. Keynesian economics provided the theoretical underpinning for economic policies undertaken in response to the crisis by President George W. Bush of the United States, Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the United Kingdom, and other heads of governments.[9]

In 1999, Time magazine included Keynes in their list of the 100 most important and influential people of the 20th century, commenting that: "His radical idea that governments should spend money they don't have may have saved capitalism."[10] He has been described by The Economist as "Britain's most famous 20th-century economist."[11] In addition to being an economist, Keynes was also a civil servant, a director of the British Eugenics Society, a director of the Bank of England, a patron of the arts and an art collector, a part of the Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals,[12] an advisor to several charitable trusts, a writer, a philosopher, a private investor, and a farmer. continues  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Maynard_Keynes


ANOTHER ECONOMIC THEORIST, JOHN NASH
Nobel winner Nash critiques economic theory
By Julia Zuckerman


Nash received the 1994 Nobel Prize in Economics for his application of game theory to economics and is best known for his study of equilibrium in non-cooperative games.


An overflow crowd packed Salomon 101 Tuesday afternoon to hear John Nash, the Princeton mathematician, Nobel laureate and subject of the film "A Beautiful Mind," present an unorthodox view of international monetary policy.

Nash's lecture, "Ideal Money and Asymptotically Ideal Money," centered on the connection between fluctuation in inflation and exchange rates and the perceived long-term value of money.


After World War II, international exchange rates were fixed, with currencies' value first pegged to gold and later fixed at set ratios. That regime was abandoned in the early 1970s, when increasing inflation forced the United States to devalue the dollar. Nash said his system would be more stable and sustainable than the gold standard because exchange rates would not be seriously affected by fluctuations in any one commodity.

"If it's defined in terms of commodities, it would be something you could trust," he said.

Nash compared the function of the price index to that of the metric system: It would facilitate the easier transfer of money and goods by standardizing the unit of measurement.

Diversified baskets of goods are also used to minimize fluctuation in the price indices used to calculate domestic inflation and in measures of stock market performance such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Nash responded with caution to the suggestion from an audience member that a system of currencies approaching perfect stability would ultimately produce a system with only one world currency.

"There's nothing wrong with it," Nash said. But he added, "In practice, I'm a little distrustful of the politicians at the level of the United Nations and elsewhere," who would be in charge of administering a world currency.

Nash framed his argument as a critique of Keynesian economic theory, which allows the use of inflationary monetary policy as a tool to stimulate the economy during times of recession. This acceptance of small increases of inflation, he said, can allow inflation to spiral in the long run. source  http://www.browndailyherald.com/2005/04/27/nobel-winner-nash-critiques-economic-theory/
