UNITED States of America - It can now be reported that the CFTC (Commodities Futures Trading Commission) has 'smoking gun' evidence linking JPMorgan Chase, United Bank of Switzerland, Barclays Bank of England and the insolvent U.S. Citibank using non-margined cross-collateralized derivatives to manipulate the entire world financial markets.
Reference: Interest rate futures, world equity markets, precious metals markets and the global forex currency futures.

Quoting Art Cashin, veteran financial analyst on CNBC, "What we have here is one gigantic worldwide financial walnut game run by crooked banks using bogus algorithms and high-frequency computer trading to disguise their financial theft."
Note: Both Bank of America and JPMorgan have reported in their last quarterly report almost 100% winners in their proprietary trading accounts.
Now that is impossible, folks, without the whole thing being rigged.
So what we have here is a total violation of the Commodity Exchange Act of 1936, which requires open outcry and real cash margined positions to engage in trading.

P.S. At this hour U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is covering up and blocking the Internal Revenue Service from prosecuting former U.S. Texas Senator Phil Gramm and his wife, former CFTC Chairman Wendy Gramm, on charges linking both Gramms and UBS Switzerland in a $780 billion tax evasion case involving ghost derivative foreign currency Swiss franc and Japanese yen forex trading.
P.P.S. At this hour both UBS of Switzerland and the Central Bank of Japan (bitcoin west and bitcoin east) are holding naked written put options in the Swiss currency and naked written call options in the Japanese yen with insolvent U.S. Citibank as the ghost counter party.

Rome (AFP) -


Vatican police on Saturday apprehended an American and a Dutch man who were trying to deposit billions of euros and US dollars in fake bonds in the Vatican bank.

The men were stopped by the police when they approached one of the guarded gates at the Vatican and asked to be let through to the Institute for Religious Works (IOR) as the bank is formally known, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi told AFP.

The bonds were discovered in a briefcase they were carrying and the men were handed over to Italy's financial police, who found false passports and other fake documents in their hotel rooms.

The haul came a day after Italian prosecutors said two former top executives at the Vatican bank will go on trial for money laundering in a case that led to the seizure of 23 million euros ($32 million).

IOR press officer Max Hohenberg said the American and Dutch man "are neither clients of the bank, nor were they expected".

The bank, which handles the accounts of Catholic clerics and congregations around the world, has a murky reputation but the Vatican has vowed to clean it up and bring it in line with international laws.

Lombardi said Saturday's episode "shows the controls are working. But I don't think we're talking about a plot by criminal masterminds if they managed to get caught at the first hurdle."

The IOR has a troubled history, including the collapse of the Banco Ambrosiano, in which the Holy See was the main shareholder, and which had been accused of laundering money for the Sicilian mafia.

The chairman of Banco Ambrosiano, Roberto Calvi -- dubbed "God's Banker" in the press -- was found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London in 1982 in a suspected murder by mobsters.

In February, Pope Francis created a new finance ministry to oversee the Holy See's economic affairs in a move the Vatican said was aimed at increasing transparency.

FOLLOW THE MONEY'S CURRENT "BANKING PROBLEMS" GO BACK TO
 http://www.voxfux.com/features/vaticanmurder.html of the early 1980's..
[but, few will have memory spans or attention spans to remember that far back or admit involvement]
By: V.K. Durham
at:  http://www.theantechamber.net


Those old enough to remember will remember CONTINENTAL BANK going down along with multitudes of other PRIME BANK Share in the U.S. of A.

All of this is tied together... Nearly everyone involved has been murdered...or BLACKMAILED into SILENCE and doing the bidding of those DESTROYING OUR AMERICAN SYSTEM OF CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. The BLACKMAILING is evident when PRESIDENT BUSH'S own brother is blackmailed by those authorized to do a COUNTERFEIT OPERATION involving U.S. Debt Instruments by the CFR which is controlled by THE VATICAN. Don't believe it!? Go to
 http://www.theantechamber.net/VkDocuments/DocGroupG/Gpage4.html
and take a peek at the BLACKMAILING OF THE PRESIDENT & BROTHER at
 http://www.theantechamber.net/Contact/Contact11205/ContactIndex.htm ..

I am going to be the first to admit: This is one hell of a way to operate a Constitutional Government while alleging to be a Government "Of the People. By the People. For the People."

The murdered man in the photos at
 http://www.theantechamber.net/V_K_Durham/VkPublicNotice.html
was one of THE KNIGHTS TEMPLARS involved with THE VATICAN BANKING & MARCINCUS & SINDONA (CHICAGO BANKING "LA SALLE BOYS").. His murder was an INSIDE JOB..by those "the closest to him."

[ note: 3/30/14: The IOR has a troubled history, including the collapse of the Banco Ambrosiano, in which the Holy See was the main shareholder, and which had been accused of laundering money for the Sicilian mafia.

The chairman of Banco Ambrosiano, Roberto Calvi -- dubbed "God's Banker" in the press -- was found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London in 1982 in a suspected murder by mobsters.]




BANKS AND INSTITUTIONS INVOLVED
 http://www.goldenkarat.com/institutions.html

A full formal investigation will further tie in to the BANK OF CREDIT AND COMMERCE and hundreds of additional banks tieing back into the SAUDI'S BANKING which also ties back in with the TEMPLARS..who were following instructions as THE PRESIDENT'S CENTURIONS (CIA) to do that requested of them by the President(s). These men and women have been "sacrificed" and their murder's remain un-investigated...THE CODE OF SILENCE (check out Oath to the President. 38 U.S.C.) and then go read
 http://www.theantechamber.net/V_K_Durham/AbusingTheCodeOfSilence.html . Read it thoroughly.
All these many years since my husbands murder.. I have wondered why "Orders came down from the top, DO NOT INVESTIGATE".. No answers ever came, nor did any Member of any Areas of Jurisdiction albeit Congressional, FBI and so forth proceed after the orders of DO NOT INVESTIGATE came down from the "top."

I now understand the fullness and the magnitude of the ORGANIZED CRIMINAL ACTIVITY by those involved in THE DARK SIDE OF VATICAN BANKING OPERATIONS and the "activity" of U.S. Banking ordered by those at the TOP i.e., THOSE IN THE OFFICES OF PUBLIC TRUST AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

Those involved thought by murdering the CEO of COSMOS SEAFOOD ENERGY MARKETING, LTD; NEVADA ID# 1707-85 and forging his signature on an "Assignment of Interest" and actually believing they had control over the U.S. DEBT INSTRUMENTS known as BONUS COMMODITY CONTRACT 3392 and CERTIFICATE OF DEBT NUMBER 181 of MAY 1, 1875 that they could overcome the BANKING MESS created by the Chicago Banking Operation run through CONTINENTAL BANK by Paul Marcinkus and covered up by U.S. HOUSE MEMBER HENRY HYDE.. which involved the LA SALLE GROUP of Bankers...

THE SPANISH BANKING CARTEL REP stated to the TRUSTEES of this DURHAM TRUST back in August 2000 [quote]:
"V.K. has been kept on the move and the project of bankrupting the U.S. Treasury and U.S. Fed. R. is so far along, she will never be able to figure out what we have been doing fast enough to stop us."
[end quote]

Admittedly; I had been kept on the move since the Vatican Controlled, COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS authorized GLOBAL ALLIANCE INVESTMENT ASSOCIATION aka GAIA-EKKER'S to operate with DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY this COUNTERFEIT U.S. DEBT INSTRUMENT OPERATION formerly mentioned.

I had been kept on the move to keep me ignorant of those using TRUST COLLATERAL INSTRUMENTS without TRUST AUTHORIZATION... Again I say; Russell's murder and the forgery of his signature, and Corporate Identity Theft of Cosmos Seafood Energy Marketing,Ltd; was to COVER all the VATICAN BLACK OPERATIONS OF VATICAN BANKING.. (list all the banks involved we have them in archives).

They got caught! Just as all of you should EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS AND DENOUNCE UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACTS, UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS BEING FORCED UPON EACH AND EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN IN THIS GREAT UNION OF REPUBLICS..

You still have remnants of "a Constitution and Constitutional Bill of Rights"... If you are not careful..you are going to lose them forever....

MAXIM of LAW: He who acquiesce's his Rights, loses them forever..

quoting J.C. COLLINS:


The United States has built its culture and identity by economically controlling the world through its currencies reserve status. This is coming to and end. How will America adjust? Can it be one country amongst many? It can never go back to being the republic it was before 1913. It must transition into the new multilateral system. Stories like Karen's give false hope and distract from the realities which America must face in the coming years.


The cheers of America must rule the world are as outdated as 8 tracks. The rest of the world knows this. America doesn't.

And the banker deaths which we are seeing is simply the new system clearing out the trash from the old system. Can't have the new landlords putting up with the same corrupt and stealing occupants. What we should be asking is who owns the building?

Let us not be distracted further. JC Collins

AND IT JUST HAPPENS

When the federal government acts like an organized criminal enterprise, it's time to treat them like one.
Appearing in the Daily Caller.
If you are looking for a political-judicial solution, such as congress, impeachment, or a special prosecutor to hold accountable the unlawful acts coming out of the Obama administration, beginning with the Internal Revenue Service's abuse and targeting of conservatives, Tea Party groups, and Christians, you are looking in the wrong place. What the IRS did tilted President Barack Obama's re-election in his favor.
The IRS targeting reportedly began as early as 2010. Three years later, no one has been held accountable and the facts continue to drip out in slow motion.
Last week, for instance, as the Daily Caller reported, retiring IRS lawyer Carter C. Hull testified before California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa's House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and implicated Obama appointee, IRS Chief Counsel William J. Wilkin, in addition to the Washington-based head of the IRS's exempt organizations office, Lois Lerner, in the IRS targeting scandal. Lerner already has pled the Fifth. Hull made it clear that the targeting of conservatives and Tea Party groups started in Washington.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department declined to prosecute a government employee who apparently knowingly improperly accessed former Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell tax records. Does anyone really believe they will see justice from the Obama administration in these cases?
The bottom line is this. You can't get justice within the political system in America anymore because the politicians own it. What ultimately stopped the mafia? The Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). What can stop the Obama administration, starting with holding corruption at the IRS accountable? RICO.
For years, as documented in The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power to Reemerge in the Obama White House & World Stage, Washington's ruling elite have comprised a protected class, with rules that don't apply to everyday Americans. If you or I lied before Congress or to federal investigators we would have been charged with perjury long ago.
In Washington, Attorney General Holder and National Security Director James Clapper can lie to Congress and hold onto their powerful positions without consequence.
People forget how the Office of Independent Counsel Special Prosecutor Robert Ray used his prosecutorial discretion when he declined in the 1990's to charge Hillary Clinton with perjury and obstruction of justice. Others might not know that additional potential crimes were not included in the articles of impeachment during former President Bill Clinton's impeachment hearings which might have prevented the Clintons and the Clintonistas from re-emerging in the Obama administration and on the world stage. People have failed to recall how the Bush administration declined to prosecute quid-pro Pardongate in which Eric Holder was knee deep in.
Aside from the occasional PR-savvy fall-guy resignations the federal justice system has been dead for decades.
This is why RICO — the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act is the solution for Americans to use to see some long overdue justice in Washington. RICO provides a peaceful way to hold corruption accountable.
Successful cases against organized crime have been built around RICO, which was enacted in 1970 to target the mafia. What is needed is to use RICO to specifically hold corrupt politicians and federal officials accountable.
RICO has already held corrupt politicians like former mayor of Detroit Kwame Kilpatrick, and his childhood friend Bobby Ferguson, accountable. Under the RICO statute, they were convicted on March 11, 2013 of using Kilpatrick's office to run a criminal organization to extort bribes in exchange for city contracts. It can be done.
According to 18 USC § 1961, crimes under RICO include everything from extortion, obstruction of justice, obstruction of a criminal investigation, and witness tampering, to kidnapping, gambling, arson, robbery, bribery, extortion, dealing in obscene matter and financial institution fraud. RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of an enterprise to file a civil suit, and if successful, to collect treble damages (damages in triple the amount of actual/compensatory damages).
In the U.S. the act of engaging in criminal activity as a structured group is referred to as "racketeering." In short, RICO requires at least two acts of racketeering activity, establishing a pattern which occurred within ten years after the commission of a prior act of racketeering activity. It's clear based on the number of conservatives and Tea Party groups that were targeted by the IRS that a pattern exists. It's also clear from the testimony before Congress and in the Inspector General report that a number of officials were involved who were following orders from above. The evidence of a pattern and conspiracy already has been established. It's time to use it.
Americans who have been targeted by the IRS or deprived of their rights by other government agencies should consider filing civil RICO suit under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 - Civil Remedy for Deprivation of Rights and RICO: Civil Remedies for Conspiracies to Deprive Rights. Civil RICO does not rely on the politicized criminal justice system to work. This is especially critical considering those politics appear to have corrupted justice within AG Holder's own department.
This American University Law Review report called, Using the Master's Tools: Fighting Persistent Police Misconduct with Civil RICO, by Steven P. Ragland, could serve as a blueprint. This case shows how civil RICO was successfully used to root out corrupt policemen in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and can be applied to corrupt officials at the IRS and other agencies where corruption exists. Substitute the bad cops with the individual corrupt government workers, LAPD with the government agency in question and off you go.

Remember, the beauty of RICO is it can begin at the local and state level, and be brought as a civil RICO action first that doesn't involve the federal government or any agency to participate. It is a private matter. Civil RICO will not put anyone in jail but may lead to financial damages. It "provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization." That means as these civil RICO suits evolve and new potential criminal information is brought to light through the discovery process, these suits can merge and potentially become criminal RICO actions that can be brought before a grand jury and spread to D.C. Victims of IRS targeting can and should start throwing down the gauntlet now.

THE CHARACTER OF VALERIE JARRETT
THE CHARACTER OF VALERIE JARRETT

Obama just happened to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama's communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition.

Valerie Jarrett also just happened to work for the city of Chicago, and just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughanRobinson (later Mrs.Obama), who just happened to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work, and where Barack Obama just happened to get a summer job.

Bernardine Dohrn just happened to be married to William Ayers, with whom she just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who just happened to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who just happened to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama just happened to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who just happened to have been the attorney for Malcolm X, whojust happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.

Obama, Sr. just happened to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which just happened to have been supported byElizabeth Mooney Kirk, who just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X, who just happenedto have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, whojust happens to live very close to Obama's Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happen to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents just happened to have no concern exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists.

After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he just happened to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that just happened to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul "the Red" Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who just happened to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clinton's thesis at Wellesley College, and Obama's $25,000 salary atIAF just happened to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company just happened to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO just happened to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers just happened to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama.

Obama also worked on voter registration drives in Chicago in the 1980s and just happened to work with leftist political groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International (SI), through which Obama met Carl Davidson, who just happened to travel to Cuba during the Vietnam War to sabotage the U.S. war effort, and who just happened to be a former member of the SDS and a member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, which just happened to sponsor a 2002 anti-war rally at which Obama spoke, and which just happened to have been organized by Marilyn Katz, a former SDS activist and later public relations consultant who just happened to be a long-time friend of Obama's political hatchet man, David Axelrod.

Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), whose pastor was Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator whojust happened to preach Marxism and Black Liberation Theology and who delivered anti-white, anti-Jew, and anti-American sermons, which Obama just happened never to hear because he just happened to miss church only on the days when Wright was at his "most enthusiastic," and Obama just happened never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the church because it was too radical, and just happened never to notice that the church gave the vile anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award.

Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama just happened to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book about race relations, which he just happened to fail to write while using the cash to vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle, and despite his record of non-writing he just happened to receive a second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father, which just happened to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers, who just happened to trample on an American flag for the cover photograph of the popular Chicago magazine, which Obama just happened never to see even though it appeared on newsstands throughout the city.

Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland, which just happened to specialize in negotiating state government contracts to develop low-income housing, and which just happened to deal with now-imprisoned TonyRezko and his firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and the law firm's Judson Miner just happened to have been a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers.
In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks(Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank), and the lawsuit just happened to result in banks being blackmailed into approving subprime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which just happened to spread nationwide, and which just happened to lead to the collapse of the housing bubble, which just happened to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.

In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the "New Party," which just happened to promote Marxism, and Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Yong, a socialist who just happened to support a government takeover of the health care system.

In late 1999 Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who just happened to be the gay choir director of Obama's Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama, and Young just happened to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church, just happened to be murdered, and both murders just happened to have never been solved. In 2008 Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and just happened to be arrested immediately after the event, based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who just happens to be the son of Joe Biden.

In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who just happened to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel, and advocate of Palestinian rights, and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas just happened to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and just happened to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers just happened to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama just happened to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel "will never see a day of peace," and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim children's dance whose performances just happened to include simulated beheadings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that "Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine" and there has been "genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis," and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to refuse to make it public.

In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull just happened to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod just happened to manage to get Hull's sealed divorce records unsealed, which just happened to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce just happened to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which just happened to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he just happened to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.
