Theres plenty to mock in this world, and Greece is hardly the nation to be doing the mocking. I think its the markets that are mocking the rest of the worlds stupidity for buying into this false reality / obfuscation / fraud, particularly by way of the now pervasive worldwide acceptance of the american strategy of currency debasement which really is a fraud facilitator because it masks to all but the intelligent few the underlying economic weakness and decline. A simplistic example, though not perfect, is apropos here: a company sells a product for 1 dollar which costs 1 dollar to make (assuming arguendo to cover fixed expenses - no profit). The fed over-printing / creating dollars like mad to the point where it now takes 2 dollars to render the same purchasing power of  1 dollar when the goods were produced. The company sells the products for 2 dollars (the previous equivalent of 1 dollar before debasement). The company is now showing earnings 1 dollar per unit sold, yet in real terms, theyve gotten no more than the equivalent of that 1 dollar per unit. (If youve been to the grocery store lately, particularly the last 1-2 months, Ive found meats, etc., to be up 50-100%, etc.). The same obfuscating manipulations are applicable to assets generally, and to those pieces of paper called stocks which are even worse for the wear since churn-and-earn commissions at lightning computerized speed are being subtracted from this illusory enhanced value which in reality doesnt exist at all. ( Such manipulations from currency translation also provide arbitrage opportunities though similarly largely ultimately subtracted from no real value being created. ) This is why fraudulent wall street loves the feds QEs and dollar debasement / over-printing / creating and also why its been a dismal failure and a net negative in real economic terms as seen on main street and in the decimation of the middle class and growing ranks of the poor. In the analysis of securities, this would be considered the quality of earnings factor that goes into the assignment of a p/e multiple to the projected earnings. Sufficeth to say, this is no longer done on wall street in any real or legitimate fashion, if at all. Indeed, its a fair statement to say that security analysis is no longer a practice as same was considered, once upon a time, by value investors / analysts. As set forth by Dave and Cooper, infra, computerized programmed manipulation at lightning speed has been expedient in the short run for the wall street frauds but ultimately leads to the inevitable crash since as I often reiterate: Remember, there is no modern day alchemy that spins worthless paper into gold except fraudulently for the frauds on wall street whove literally oftimes done exactly that; cashing out for hard currency and gold, precious metals, at everyone elses expense including main street. Theyre just not that important and represent, like termites eating away at the nations foundation, a drag on the economy, the nation as one would expect from parasites such as they are.

Justice Dept. lawyers target states’ tough immigration laws In an escalated crackdown, lawyers are reviewing four new state statutes to determine whether they will challeng the measures in court.

Quite simply, at those prices, while somewhat short-term politically expedient, very uneconomic!

That's the fiscal gap" ..' ! ]

(Washington Post) [  Oh come on! Too little, too late for ‘wobama the b’ (for b***s***), the eternal campaign(er) … he’s got a ‘good rap’ … that rapper ‘wobama the b’ (for b***s***).  Really! He’s a total embarrassment out there on the campaign trail; and just as much an embarrassment for those who turn out to see him … maybe he’s somewhat of an allure as in a freak show. He’s a total joke! To be finally talking jobs and things just before the election having broken previous campaign promises in his failed role as ‘bush failure 3’. Even his pension is undeserved so much a fraud is he!

Inflation builds...
FOOD PRICES RISING...

Most importantly, realize that if wobamas actions had not belied his words/campaign promises, the nations position, though still ominous, would have been substantially improved.

It is always somewhat reassuring that someone, like yourself in Washington, is committed to finding solutions to the myriad of problems confronting the nation; some insurmountable [ America's debt woe is worse than Greece's Sep 21st, 2011 News (CNN) - 'Our government is utterly broke.

Yet it's somewhat difficult to imagine that pension plans, particularly of the defined benefit variety as opposed to the more fiscally conservative defined contribution type, anywhere in america are over-funded in light of overly optimistic 'assumptions' for returns on said funds (ie., Drudgereport: STUDY: State, local gov'ts must raise taxes $1,400 a year for 30 years to fund pensions...
Chicago county faces $108 billion gap in pensions....
TREASURY RAIDS PENSIONS...
Treasury to tap pensions to fund government (Washington Post) ].

On September 22, 2011 I spoke with FBI Agent Bill Lewis in Washington who was recently promoted to the FBI Headquarters Office (D.C.) from the FBI office here in LA, and with whom I had discussed the matters of which you are aware; and which matters are well within Washington's ability to easily resolve what should have been resolved in accordance with clear law quite some time ago. It is difficult to imagine the u.s. government solving the gargantuan, nation-destructive problems confronting the nation when through typical corruption, meaningful lawlessness, lack of will, etc., have chosen not to solve my matter as related to you in accordance with clear law and which would clearly be the right thing to do at long last.
Previously I wrote to thank you for thinking of me and for the courtesy extended. However, in all honesty, with rare exceptions (ie., maybe 'post-cards'?, etc.), I don't use the usps that I've found so unreliable. The following is my comment to an LA Times article regarding a Justice Department cover-up and as pertains to the usps! As I've previously related to you, all I think about day and night is a long overdue resolution to the RICO litigation as set forth therein:

Congress would need to sign off. (Washington Post) [ I think it's a great idea. Indeed, 50% would be substantially better. Even better yet, UPS should take over their entire operation. After all, UPS is well managed and efficient; and also, very reliable. On the other hand, the USPS is poorly managed, inefficient, and very unreliable:

The following is my comment to an LA Times article regarding a Justice Department cover-up! As for your inquiry, all I think about day and night is a long overdue resolution to the RICO litigation as set forth therein:
ATF Chief Melson:Justice Department trying to shield officials (LATimes) Serrano

I believe him!

I truly empathize with the ATF in terms of government cover-ups, notably by even the DOJ. You'll recognize some familiar names (ie., Alito, Trump, Freeh (Louis Freeh now has dual citizenship with Italy), and some familiar crimes (ie., drug money laundering, etc. - real cash cow for gov't ops, bribes, etc.). [Did you know this about the following ATF Agents who were probably viewed as loose ends: Steve Willis, Robert Williams, Todd McKeahan & Conway LeBleu: Died February 28, 1993 by gunfire at Waco. All four were examined by a pathologist and died from identical wounds to the left temple. All four had been body guards for Bill Clinton, three while campaigning for President and when he was Governor of Arkansas.They also were the ONLY 4 BATF agents killed at Waco. ]

Dear Sir:

I enclose herewith 3 copies of the within DVD rom autorun disk (which will open in your computer's browser) as per your office's request as made this day (the disk and contents have been scanned by Avast, McAfee, and Norton which I've installed on my computer to prevent viral attacks / infection and are without threat). I also include 1 copy of the DVD as filed with the subject court as referenced therein (which files are also included on the aforesaid 3 disks in a separate folder named '112208opocoan'). The (civil) RICO action (as you're aware, the RICO Act is a criminal statute which provides a civil remedy, including treble damages and at! torney fees, as an incentive for private prosecution of said claims pr obably owing to the fact that the USDOJ seems somewhat overwhelmed and in need of such assistance given the seriousness and prevalence of said violations of law which have a corrupting influence on the process, and which corruption is pervasive). A grievance complaint against Coan was also filed concurrently with the subject action and held in abeyance pending resolution of the action which was illegally dismissed without any supporting law and in contravention of the Order of The Honorable Robert N. Chatigny, Chief Judge, USDC, District Connecticut. The files below the horizontal rule are the referenced documents as filed. (Owing to the damage to the financial interests of both the U.S. and the District of Congresswoman Roybal-Allard, viz., Los Angeles, the Qui Tam provisions of the Federal False Claims Act probably would apply and I would absent resolution seek to refer the within to a firm with expertise in that area of the law with which I am not familiar).


Th! e document in 5 pages under penalty of perjury I was asked to forward to the FBI office in New Haven is probably the best and most concise summary of the case RICO Summary to FBI Under Penalty of Perjury at Their Request (5 pages) [ ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf http://albertpeia.com/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf ].


The correspondence I received from the Congresswoman by way of email attachment (apparent but typical problem with my mail) along with my response thereto is included on the 3 disks as fbicorrespondencereyes.htm . With regard to the calls to the FBI's LA and New Haven, CT offices: There was one call to the LA office and I was referred to the Long Beach, CA office where I personally met with FBI Agent Jeff Hayes to whom I gave probative evidentiary documents of the money laundering which he confirmed as indicative of same (he was transferred from said office within approximately a month of said meetin! g and his location was not disclosed to me upon inquiry). The matter w as assigned to FBI Agent Ron Barndollar and we remained in touch for in excess of a decade until he abruptly retired (our last conversation prior to his retirement related to the case and parenthetically, Rudy Giuliani whose father I stated had been an enforcer for the mob to which he registered disbelief and requested I prove it, which I did - he served 12 years in prison, aggravated assault/manslaughter? - and no, there is no Chinese wall of separation - Andrew Maloney's the one that prosecuted gotti).


In contradistinction to the statement in said correspondence, there is a plethora of information including evidence supporting the claims set forth in the RICO VERIFIED COMPLAINT (see infra). Such includes and as set forth in the case, inter alia,



* A judgment had been entered in my favor in the case, United States District Court Case #3:93cv02065(AWT)(USDCJ Alvin Thompson), worth approximately now in excess of $300,000 remains unaccounted ! for and which could be used for payment to creditors, Los Angeles, etc..
* Counsel Robert Sullivan on my behalf documented by way of certification upon investigation that Alan Shiff, USBCJ, had falsely stated a dismissal upon which false statement he predicated a retaliatory and spurious contempt proceeding against me causing substantial damage, and for which he sought Judicial Notice of those and related proceedings as did I in some of my filings.
* The Order of Dismissal With Prejudice by Alan Shiff, USBCJ, owing to Defendant Coan's failure to file anything whatsoever by the court's deadline causing creditors and me substantial damages: [ Shiff Order of Dismissal With Prejudice on Coan's Failure to File Page 1 Page 2 ]
* Defendant Coan had filed an action against me to prevent me from suing him which necessitated me to fly to Connecticut for a hearing before The Honorable Robert N. Chatigny, Chief Judge, USDC, District o! f Connecticut, who denied Coan's requested relief as to Coan but precl uded my action against Shiff (although there is no immunity, judicial or otherwise, for criminal acts, ie., fraud connected with a case under Title 11, USC, etc.) . [ transcript in pertinent part - http://albertpeia/crossexamofcoanbypeia.pdf ]
* Newly appointed judge, Maryanne Trump Barry, Donald Trump's sister, was assigned the RICO case despite the conflict of interest in light of hundreds of thousands of dollars of illegal (drug) money being laundered through the Trump casinos by the RICO defendants, and despite my motion to recuse her which motion she heard herself and denied, and U.S. Trustee Hugh Leonard with whom I met personally refused to join or file a separate motion to recuse and not long thereafter left said office for private practice at Cole, Shotz, et als on retainer with the RICO defendants as his primary client.

* Probative and evidentiary documents, affidavits, exhibits, including those turned over to FBI Agent Jeff Hayes in Long B! each, CA, had been given to Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Lacey with whom I met personally at the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark, N.J., at which time Samuel Alito was U.S. Attorney, and went over said documents and their probative value with him. Within approximately a month thereafter upon inquiry I was told that Jonathon Lacey was no longer with the office, that the file/documents could not be located, and that there was no further information available concerning contacting him or his location. I thereupon delivered by hand, copies of said documents to the office of then U.S. Attorney Alito, addressed to him, with assurance they would go directly to him. In addition to being inept [ I looked in on the one mob case he had brought, bungled, lost (accidently on purpose?) since I was suing some mob-connected under RICO and the court (I had known / previously met outside of court the judge Ackerman through a client) was absolute bedlam and a total joke since incompetent ! corrupt Alito brought in all 20 mob defendants (rather than prosecute one or a few to flip them first) who feigning illness had beds/cots in the courtroom along with their moans during testimony and had the jury in stitches. As much as I hate the mob, it truly was funny, if not so tragic.], Alito is also corrupt (and maybe corrupt because he is inept). After a reasonable (but still rather short) time I called to determine the status and was told that Alito was no longer with the Office of the U.S. Attorney, that he was (appointed) a federal judge, and that neither the documents nor any file or record of same could be located. Alito did parley the same / cover-up into quid pro quo direct lifetime appointment to the Court of Appeals, 3rd circuit, despite the absence of judicial experience or successful tenure as U.S. Attorney (Maryanne Trump Barry as well). This is the same Sam Alito that now sits on the purported highest court in the land. The real application of the illegal rule 'don't ask, don't tell'.



There is applicable ins! urance / surety coverage and neither LA, nor creditors, nor I should continue to have been damaged by this brazened corrupt and illegal scenario, which should be resolved in accordance with the meaningful rules of law apposite thereto.

There’s plenty to mock in this world, and Greece is hardly the nation to be doing the mocking. I think it’s the markets that are mocking the rest of the world’s stupidity for buying into this false reality / obfuscation / fraud, particularly by way of the now pervasive worldwide acceptance of the american strategy of currency debasement which really is a fraud facilitator because it masks to all but the intelligent few the underlying economic weakness and decline. A simplistic example, though not perfect, is apropos here: a company sells a product for 1 dollar which costs 1 dollar to make (assuming arguendo to cover fixed expenses - no profit). The fed over-printing / creating dollars like mad to the point where it now takes 2 dollars to render the same purchasing power of  1 dollar when the goods were produced. The company sells the products for 2 dollars (the previous equivalent of 1 dollar before debasement). The company is now showing earnings 1 dollar per unit sold, yet in real terms, they’ve gotten no more than the equivalent of that 1 dollar per unit. (If you’ve been to the grocery store lately, particularly the last 1-2 months, I’ve found meats, etc., to be up 50-100%, etc.). The same obfuscating manipulations are applicable to assets generally, and to those pieces of paper called stocks which are even ‘worse for the wear’ since churn-and-earn commissions at lightning computerized speed are being subtracted from this illusory ‘enhanced value’ which in reality doesn’t exist at all. ( Such manipulations from currency translation also provide ‘arbitrage opportunities’ though similarly largely ultimately subtracted from no real value being created. ) This is why fraudulent wall street loves the fed’s QE’s and dollar debasement / over-printing / creating and also why it’s been a dismal failure and a net negative in real economic terms as seen on main street and in the decimation of the middle class and growing ranks of the poor. In the analysis of securities, this would be considered ‘the quality of earnings factor’ that goes into the assignment of a p/e multiple to the projected earnings. Sufficeth to say, this is no longer done on wall street in any real or legitimate fashion, if at all. Indeed, it’s a fair statement to say that security analysis is no longer a ‘practice’ as same was considered, once upon a time, by value investors / analysts. As set forth by Dave and Cooper, infra, computerized programmed manipulation at lightning speed has been expedient in the short run for the wall street frauds but ultimately leads to the inevitable crash since as I often reiterate: Remember, there is no modern day alchemy that spins worthless paper into gold except fraudulently for the frauds on wall street who’ve literally oftimes done exactly that; ‘cashing out’ for hard currency and gold, precious metals, at everyone else’s expense including main street. They’re just not that important and represent, like termites eating away at the nation’s foundation, a drag on the economy, the nation as one would expect from parasites such as they are’.

Krauthammer: Why Abbas went to the U.N. (Washington Post) [ Maybe Mr. Krauthammer should just ask him why Im sure hed get an earful of sound reasons. Then again, maybe Mr. Krauthammer might not be listening; after all, as a jewish man himself, hed certainly find himself within the exceedingly small minority of jewish people who would (listen certainly not the israeli lobby nor capital hill which the perspicatious Pat Buchanan has correctly observed as being occupied israeli territory). Yet, somewhere along Mr. Krauthammers timeline / history he conveniently but not surprisingly forgets what was already decided, yet never lived up to. After all (once again), if military-oriented warring states as israel are through aggression permitted to retain by superior military power the benefits of war, there would be no end to war; as in israels case, it would always pay to go to war. No one could rationally support such an irrational and untenable position. Hence: UN Resolutions 242 and 338  http://reut-institute.org/Publication.aspx?PublicationId=541  (I used the Reut Institute, an israeli organization, reference so as to preclude any accusation of anti-israeli bias).  This term refers to UN Security Council Resolutions that lay the foundation for the Israeli-Palestinian political process, based on territorial compromise and a solution to the problem of Palestinian refugees.

Definition

The term UN Resolutions 242 and 338 refers to two resolutions approved by the UN Security Council. Resolution 242 was approved after the 1967 war (11/67) while Resolution 338 was approved during the 1973 war (10/73).

Background

UN Resolutions 242 and 338 call for the peaceful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict through territorial compromise. The acceptance of the Resolutions by Arab elements indicates their recognition of Israel.

The political process between Israel and the Arabs - including the 1978 Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt (9/78), the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty (3/79), the Madrid Conference (10/91), the Peace Treaty between Israel and Jordan (10/94), and the structure of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process since 9/93 - is founded on these Resolutions.

Content of Resolutions

The main articles of UN Security Council Resolution 242 (11/67) call for:

Resolution 338 (10/73) reiterates the importance of Resolution 242, and calls upon the sides to begin negotiations with the aim of achieving a just and durable peace.

Interpretations

The interpretation of the resolutions is the object of political and legal controversy primarily regarding two points:

Extent of Israeli withdrawal - The first article of Resolution 242 is an object of controversy because of differences in wording between the English and the French versions of the text. The English version talks about Israeli withdrawal "from territories...", while the French version talks about Israeli withdrawal "from the territories" (des territories...). Thus, the addition of the word "the" in the French version implies that Israel is required to withdraw from all the occupied territories.

Solution to the refugee problem - UN Resolution 242 talks about a "just settlement" to the refugee problem without addressing the specific solution that appears in UN General Assembly resolution 194. Arab countries, as well as others, interpret Resolution 194 as the basis for the "right of return" of Palestinian refugees1. Hence, they argue that Resolution 194 is the interpretation of a "just settlement" that appears in Resolution 242. However, because Resolution 242 does not specifically mention 194, Israel does not interpret it as harboring the "right of return" and therefore sees it as a possible basis for the solution to the refugee problem.

 

 

Some more history:

The Balfour Declaration of 1917 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration_of_1917#cite_note-1 (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter from the British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."[1]

The statement was issued through the efforts of Chaim Weizmann and Nahum Sokolow, the principal Zionist leaders based in London; as they had asked for the reconstitution of Palestine as the Jewish national home, the declaration fell short of Zionist expectations.[2]

 

[Yeahthose zionist expectations can really be a bi**ch / deal-breakers when searching for peaceful resolutions! ]

 

As a former Doctor of Psychiatry, I’m sure Mr. Krauthammer might appreciate the last portion of this comment, infra: Abbas announces U.N. member bid Move appears to seal fate of U.S. efforts to broker a deal to resume Israeli-Palestinian talks. (Washington Post) [ U.S. (israeli) efforts? Resume infinite talks? Is this some parallel universe they’re operating in? Let’s apply the Einstein definition to such a preposterous position promulgated by the u.s. / israelis: ‘Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’ Time for action regarding this long overdue independent statehood which should be ‘fate accomplis’! U.N. showdown could test U.S. role in Mideast One week before a United Nations vote over Palestinian statehood, the Obama administration is confronting the stark new limits of its influence. (Washington Post) [  What role? As israel’s mouthpiece? War, war, and more war? Death, destruction, and self-defeat including defacto bankruptcy for the u.s.? Fomenting anti-american sentiment? What role? The role the israeli lobby says is appropriate for america? How foolish america has been! Anxieties mount over Palestinian statehood bid (WP) [ And anxieties mount over no statehood bid! What gives here! Only ‘yesterday’ (not long ago), hillary clinton was talking about the need for and appropriateness of same. Has the israeli lobby, so costly and detrimental to american interests here and abroad, given her and hers a ‘talking to’? .

European bailout fund is just the beginning Germany and other parliaments are gradually signing off on a $600 billion bailout fund that will help in solving the region’s financial crisis, but will quickly have to decide how to put an even larger amount of money to work. (Washington Post) [ Truly an understatement and one must wonder ‘what are they thinking’; and so uncharacteristic for the usually ‘grounded’ Germans. Indeed, despite the appropriateness of mocking the preposterous notion of defacto bankrupt ‘american advice’ on fiscal matters; they’ve pretty much adopted a similarly doomed strategy of currency printing/debasement and ‘good money after bad’, albeit in ‘baby steps’ relative to the gargantuan failed similar policy launched in the defacto bankrupt u.s.(s. Titanic) for the sake and benefit of the frauds on wall street.  Bernanke calls unemployment a ‘national crisis’   28 Sep 2011 Fed chief Ben Bernanke said Wednesday that the nation’s weak labor market was “a national crisis” - Duh!

Greece passes unpopular property tax The new tax is an attempt to raise $2.7 billion in revenue and prove to European creditors that the country is serious about meeting its fiscal targets. But the measure hits hard for Greek families already struggling.  (Washington Post) [  European bank continues bond-buying It has become the region’s “last resort” investor as it tries to keep a lid on the rates paid by Italy, Spain.  (Washington Post) [ Nothing succeeds quite like failure in the ‘new west’. From people-killing, nation-bankrupting, nation-destroying perma wars to QE’s to gimmicks to ‘warp speed’ currency printing presses, the lock-step rush for the abyss like lemmings they’ve become. Never mind that across the board, such as the aforementioned has actually exacerbated the crisis / problems they were supposedly meant to solve.

(MarketWatch) [ Of course Mr. Hulbert is correct in pointing out the folly of what’s purportedly causing the meltdown. Indeed, he might even borrow from the homespun wisdom of the mama of that stellar investigative reporter, formerly of SNL fame, Rosanne Rosanna Dana, who reminds us ‘ It’s always somethin’ ‘ . Indeed, Rosanne; it is always somethin’… just not the somethin’ that the frauds on wall street et als say it is. The fact is the markets are grossly over-valued courtesy of a myriad of fraudulent tools; from computer-prgrammed high-frequency trade churn-and-earn scams, to ever more worthless funny money, to blatant misrepresentation / fudged numbers, etc.. Will you be left holding their worthless bag of hot potatoes? Will you be their fool … again … in this suckers’ market? ]  — ‘Greece ate my homework. Not only that, if you believe the financial headlines, Greece is responsible for almost every financial ill that has beset the investment arena over the last 18 months. I say it’s time the headline writers came up with a new story to “explain” what’s happening to the stock market.

Consider last week, for example, when investors’ concern about a possible Greek default supposedly caused the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +1.33%   to lose 738 points and the combined market capitalizations of all publicly traded stocks in the U.S. to lose $865 billion.
How could Greece have been the cause of that, when Greece’s total sovereign debt (counting both government debt and from the country’s monetary authorities) amounts to $393 billion, according to the International Monetary Fund? It doesn’t make sense, even if Greece’s debt were completely owed to U.S. banks — which it most definitely is not.

Blaming Greece makes even less sense when we focus on more than just the last week. Since the stock market high this spring, for example, U.S. stocks have lost approximately $2.5 trillion in market cap. Once again, the prime suspect is concern over Europe’s debt situation.

Yet the $2.5 trillion loss is more than twice the total debt (from both the government and the monetary authorities) of Greece, Spain and Portugal combined — the three PIIGS countries considered to be most in danger of default.

Why, then, do so many investment commentators persist in telling the story that Europe’s debt situation is to blame? Because it’s a convenient and easy explanation to fall back upon, especially in the face of a market that is otherwise acting so inscrutably.

How many of us have the guts to say that we don’t really know why the market went up or down? Rather than admitting that, we instead tell stories — akin to Rudyard Kipling’s “Just So” stories, such as the one about how the leopard got his spots.

Blaming Greece is only the latest example of this. My perennial favorite is the oft-used explanation that the market went up (or down) on a given day because there were more buyers than sellers (or more sellers than buyers). This is just intellectual laziness, of course: During any trading session there are always the same number of buyers and sellers.

Investors need to let Greece rest in peace. That country has enough problems of its own without being asked to take responsibility for ours as well.’

Split opens over Greek bail-out terms Sep 27th, 2011 15:37  News (Financial Times) A split has opened in the eurozone over the terms of Greeces second 109bn bail-out with as many as seven of the blocs 17 members arguing for private creditors to swallow a bigger writedown on their Greek bond holdings, according to senior European officials.The divisions have emerged amid mounting concerns that Athens funding needs are much bigger than estimated just two months ago. They threaten to unpick a painfully negotiated deal reached with private sector bond holders in July.Because of the recent economic downturn and Greeces slow implementation of austerity measures, officials estimate Athens funding needs over the next three years have grown beyond the 172bn forecast this summer.[source]

PG View: Missed numbers out of Greece? Say it isnt so. How far beyond 172 bln are we talking here? Does any number they give have any meaning? The funding needs when the last deal was cut back 0n 21-Jul where 109 bln, since then Greeces needs have exploded about 60%or more! No sane investor would throw more money into this sinkhole of unknowns.

Europe’s High-Risk Gamble Sep 27th, 2011 News by Martin Feldstein (ProSyn) — The Greek government needs to escape from an otherwise impossible situation. It has an unmanageable level of government debt (150% of GDP, rising this year by ten percentage points), a collapsing economy (with GDP down by more than 7% this year, pushing the unemployment rate up to 16%), a chronic balance-of-payments deficit (now at 8% of GDP), and insolvent banks that are rapidly losing deposits.The only way out is for Greece to default on its sovereign debt. When it does, it must write down the principal value of that debt by at least 50%. The current plan to reduce the present value of privately held bonds by 20% is just a first small step toward this outcome.[source]

[ .. (the following incident is my personal experience: black perps, white victims)‘.. while walking through Military Park (a sliver of a “park” - more a pedestrian thoroughfare/cement walks) in newark, new jersey on the way to the bank during lunch hour, I heard the clearly audible screams/cries of what turned out to be an old lady on the ground with blood streaming from her mouth. I ran toward the sound of the cries, the source of which I could not see because there were so many people in and about this thoroughfare so as to block any vision of the source of the cries. When I came to the woman, on the ground, blood streaming from her mouth, I asked what happened, to which she responded she had been hit in the mouth and knocked to the ground, her purse stolen/put inside her shopping bag, and she pointed out the criminal casually now walking across the main street. Nobody stopped to help her, many having passed her by. I slammed the thug to the ground so hard that, in light of all the blood and confusion (limbic system / adrenalin flow) I thought I had been stabbed (the blood was from his elbows hitting the pavement so hard - no one helped / a crowd gathered / an undercover cop happened along). When I testified at the Grand Jury Proceeding I made sure his threat on my life was set forth in prima facie fashion so as to maximize the DA’s position with both felonies ( he went to prison – pled out ). The other case I wrote about here ( This was included on my website in the Psychology forum discussion of ‘bystander effect’ / diffusion of responsibility. ) - Having had occasion to have run down a mugger in newark, n.j. who apparently had followed a girl from the bank on her way to the bursar to pay tuition, though in pretty good shape, I was astounded by how totally exhausting such a pursuit was, how much like rubber my arms were when I traded punches with the perpetrator, and truth be told, if I had a flashlight on my belt, I have little doubt that I would have probably used it to subdue the perp (a police officer here in California was the object of intense criticism for having used a flashlight to subdue a criminal after a long chase so I included that here) . The girl was not that seriously injured, did get her pocketbook and tuition back, and the criminal went to jail (where they belong). The other thing about such a pursuit that amazed me was that no one else assisted the girl or me despite being in a position to do so. I was also mugged by 4 blacks and 2 hispanics in an incident here in Los Angeles, CA. But, to be fair and balanced, the RICO litigation involves those uncivilized who consider themselves ‘whites’ http://albertpeia.com/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf  (predominantly but not exclusively jews / romans-italians / mobsters / government slugs). ]  N.Y. bumped from foreclosure panel Iowa’s attorney general says N.Y. official “actively worked to undermine” group’s efforts in foreclosure negotiation with banks.

SHARE YOUR OPINION ON THE DEBT LIMIT
Dear Congresswoman Roybal-Allard:

The following is my comment to an LA Times article regarding a Justice Department cover-up! As for your inquiry, all I think about day and night is a long overdue resolution to the RICO litigation as set forth therein:

ATF Chief Melson:Justice Department trying to shield officials (LATimes) Serrano

 

I believe him!

 I truly empathize with the ATF in terms of government cover-ups, notably by even the DOJ. You’ll recognize some familiar names (ie., Alito, Trump, Freeh (Louis Freeh now has dual citizenship with Italy), and some familiar crimes (ie., drug money laundering, etc. – real cash cow for gov’t ops, bribes, etc.). [Did you know this about the following ATF Agents who were probably viewed as loose ends: Steve Willis, Robert Williams, Todd McKeahan & Conway LeBleu:   Died February 28, 1993 by gunfire at Waco. All four were examined by a pathologist and died from identical wounds to the left temple. All four had been body guards for Bill Clinton, three while campaigning for President and when he was Governor of Arkansas.They also were the ONLY 4 BATF agents killed at Waco. ]

 

 

 

Heres some real, complicit cover-up / fraud on the part of the federal government, et als:

Steven M. Martinez, Assistant Director In Charge
Federal Bureau of Investigation, USDOJ
11000 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 1700

Los Angeles, CA 90024

 

 

Dear Sir:

 

I enclose herewith 3 copies of the within DVD rom autorun disk (which will open in your computers browser) as per your offices request as made this day (the disk and contents have been scanned by Avast, McAfee, and Norton which Ive installed on my computer to prevent viral attacks / infection and are without threat). I also include 1 copy of the DVD as filed with the subject court as referenced therein (which files are also included on the aforesaid 3 disks in a separate folder named 112208opocoan). The (civil) RICO action (as youre aware, the RICO Act is a criminal statute which provides a civil remedy, including treble damages and attorney fees, as an incentive for private prosecution of said claims probably owing to the fact that the USDOJ seems somewhat overwhelmed and in need of such assistance given the seriousness and prevalence of said violations of law which have a corrupting influence on the process, and which corruption is pervasive). A grievance complaint against Coan was also filed concurrently with the subject action and held in abeyance pending resolution of the action which was illegally dismissed without any supporting law and in contravention of the Order of The Honorable Robert N. Chatigny, Chief Judge, USDC, District Connecticut. The files below the horizontal rule are the referenced documents as filed. (Owing to the damage to the financial interests of both the U.S. and the District of Congresswoman Roybal-Allard, viz., Los Angeles, the Qui Tam provisions of the Federal False Claims Act probably would apply and I would absent resolution seek to refer the within to a firm with expertise in that area of the law with which I am not familiar).

 

 

The document in 5 pages under penalty of perjury I was asked to forward to the FBI office in New Haven is probably the best and most concise summary of the case  RICO Summary to FBI Under Penalty of Perjury at Their Request (5 pages)      [  ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf   http://albertpeia.com/ricosummarytoFBIunderpenaltyofperjury.pdf          ].

 

 

The correspondence I received from the Congresswoman by way of email attachment (apparent but typical problem with my mail) along with my response thereto is included on the 3 disks as     fbicorrespondencereyes.htm     .   With regard to the calls to the FBIs LA and New Haven, CT offices: There was one call to the LA office and I was referred to the Long Beach, CA office where I personally met with FBI Agent Jeff Hayes to whom I gave probative evidentiary documents of the money laundering which he confirmed as indicative of same (he was transferred from said office within approximately a month of said meeting and his location was not disclosed to me upon inquiry). The matter was assigned to FBI Agent Ron Barndollar and we remained in touch for in excess of a decade until he abruptly retired (our last conversation prior to his retirement related to the case and parenthetically, Rudy Giuliani whose father I stated had been an enforcer for the mob to which he registered disbelief and requested I prove it, which I did he served 12 years in prison, aggravated assault/manslaughter? and no, there is no Chinese wall of separation Andrew Maloneys the one that prosecuted gotti).

 

 

In contradistinction to the statement in said correspondence, there is a plethora of information including evidence supporting the claims set forth in the    RICO VERIFIED COMPLAINT    (see infra). Such includes and as set forth in the case, inter alia,

 

 

 

 

There is applicable insurance / surety coverage and neither LA, nor creditors, nor I should continue to have been damaged by this brazened corrupt and illegal scenario, which should be resolved in accordance with the meaningful rules of law apposite thereto.

 

 

Sincerely,

Theres plenty to mock in this world, and Greece is hardly the nation to be doing the mocking. I think its the markets that are mocking the rest of the worlds stupidity for buying into this false reality / obfuscation / fraud, particularly by way of the now pervasive worldwide acceptance of the american strategy of currency debasement which really is a fraud facilitator because it masks to all but the intelligent few the underlying economic weakness and decline. A simplistic example, though not perfect, is apropos here: a company sells a product for 1 dollar which costs 1 dollar to make (assuming arguendo to cover fixed expenses - no profit). The fed over-printing / creating dollars like mad to the point where it now takes 2 dollars to render the same purchasing power of  1 dollar when the goods were produced. The company sells the products for 2 dollars (the previous equivalent of 1 dollar before debasement). The company is now showing earnings 1 dollar per unit sold, yet in real terms, theyve gotten no more than the equivalent of that 1 dollar per unit. (If youve been to the grocery store lately, particularly the last 1-2 months, Ive found meats, etc., to be up 50-100%, etc.). The same obfuscating manipulations are applicable to assets generally, and to those pieces of paper called stocks which are even worse for the wear since churn-and-earn commissions at lightning computerized speed are being subtracted from this illusory enhanced value which in reality doesnt exist at all. ( Such manipulations from currency translation also provide arbitrage opportunities though similarly largely ultimately subtracted from no real value being created. ) This is why fraudulent wall street loves the feds QEs and dollar debasement / over-printing / creating and also why its been a dismal failure and a net negative in real economic terms as seen on main street and in the decimation of the middle class and growing ranks of the poor. In the analysis of securities, this would be considered the quality of earnings factor that goes into the assignment of a p/e multiple to the projected earnings. Sufficeth to say, this is no longer done on wall street in any real or legitimate fashion, if at all. Indeed, its a fair statement to say that security analysis is no longer a practice as same was considered, once upon a time, by value investors / analysts. As set forth by Dave and Cooper, infra, computerized programmed manipulation at lightning speed has been expedient in the short run for the wall street frauds but ultimately leads to the inevitable crash since as I often reiterate: Remember, there is no modern day alchemy that spins worthless paper into gold except fraudulently for the frauds on wall street whove literally oftimes done exactly that; cashing out for hard currency and gold, precious metals, at everyone elses expense including main street. Theyre just not that important and represent, like termites eating away at the nations foundation, a drag on the economy, the nation as one would expect from parasites such as they are.

Obama's Legacy: A Failed Recovery & Double-Dip Recession  Forbes / Mariotti  ‘…There will be no significant recovery in the United States of America while Barack Obama is President.  The evidence is overwhelming:  everything Obama has tried to fuel a recovery (with his Democratic allies in Congress) has failed.  Statistics claiming jobs saved by the stimulus package were mostly fiction, and cost American taxpayers about $275,000 each.  Nearly 2-1/2 million fewer Americans have jobs than before the stimulus. Barack Obama has been President for 30 months2-1/2 years. He spent the first year obsessed with passing Obamacare, a program that doesnt create jobs, but might destroy a lot of them.  He bailed out GM, but many believe that his interference didnt save GM; it merely cost taxpayers an extra $15-20 billion, and stole from legitimate investors to buy off the UAW.  His broken campaign promises are too numerous to list.  At some point, his statute of limitations on blaming Bush runs out…’   ,   The Bear Market Rally Has Begun at Minyanville   Toby Connor Aug 30, 2011 ‘…Investors need to be prepared.

This was not a correction. This was the first leg down in a new cyclical (secular) bear market. And like all bear markets it will be subject to violent countertrend rallies that toy with traders' emotions, and ultimately cause investors to ride the bear all the way to the bottom…’    Scandal scarred commerce dept. report on consumer spending with anemic income figures (typically as always unworthy of belief as unbelievable anything the government says in their desperation) spurs suckers rally (along with some short covering) to suck suckers in and keep suckers sucked in.  Massive Understatement: Mohamed El-Erians reply to Frank Motek 1070am regarding particularly the 300+ point swing to the upside today, (theyre) confused!

Even more pathetic is the so-called rally based on a purported rethink of fedspeak alleged  to be so filled with latent / hidden meaning of a form of QE welfare down the road. Those pathetic titans of capitalism; aka, the frauds of wall street.  Never mind that the QEs have failed miserably and at great costs (inflation, financial, economic, etc.) and detriment to all but the frauds on wall street by way of their manipulated computer-programmed ( high frequency trading) commissioned churn-and-earn. Wall streets rise has been among the causes of and comcomitant to americas decline / demise. Remember, there is no modern day alchemy that spins worthless paper into gold except fraudulently for the frauds on wall street whove literally oftimes done exactly that; cashing out for hard currency and gold, precious metals, at everyone elses expense including main street. Theyre just not that important and represent, like termites eating away at the nations foundation, a drag on the economy, the nation as one would expect from parasites such as they are.

Beneath the Market’s Swings, Some Real Cause for Worry  News  Jeff Cox August 11 (CNBC) — ‘So whether this equals, falls short of, or exceeds the financial crisis of 2008 hardly seems to matter—investors are afraid, very afraid, and the question as much as anything in the minds of many market pros will be what soothes that fear. Analyst Dick Bove at Rochdale Securities says he knows why: More restrictive capital requirements and near-zero interest rates set at the Federal Reserve [cnbc explains] that make lending neither easy nor lucrative, a trend that will make it difficult for the economy to grow. “If one thinks through these limitations it can be seen that banks must shrink their balance sheets and change their business patterns to maintain their profits. What they are unlikely to do is to expand their lending activities in order to grow the economy,” Bove wrote in a lengthy banking analysis Thursday.“However, the Federal Reserve is suggesting that the economy is unlikely to grow,” he wrote. “If the Fed is prescient, then banks are facing higher loan losses, lower loan volume, and reduced margins on a wide array of banking products. The outlook is not appealing.”“Even though the United States is able to both print and borrow money, it is as bankrupt as the Europeans,” Bove wrote. “Covering deficits and paying debt with borrowed funds, some of which is newly printed, does not constitute meeting debt service requirements.”…’

Take A Lesson From 2007 And Sell Stocks Now at Forbes, Sean Hanlon August has given new meaning to the dog days of summer as the broad equity market has retracted all year-to-date gains and dropped into negative territory, all within the first couple weeks.

As written in my previous Market Commentary on July 20, our research uncovered potentially dangerous activity in the equity markets that could lead to a break and high volatility.  We presented this in that Market Commentary by the chart in Figure 1 below.  Using our proprietary research methodologies, we elected to make a major tactical move on June 17.

That move reduced all equity and high-yield bond exposure, creating 50% cash or cash equivalent allocations across all portfolios. This defensive move was shown to be prudent as volatility erupted and considerable downside was experienced in equity markets in the first week of August, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 1 (click image to enlarge.)

http://blogs-images.forbes.com/advisor/files/2011/08/11.jpg

With this heightened volatility, we were observant that this market behavior was eerily similar to market conditions in 2007. To elaborate on this point, lets compare the S&P 500 Index for 2007 vs. the first seven months of 2011.  As you can see below in Figure 2, 2007 experienced high volatility yet remained range-bound in an upward trend (represented by the overlaid black bands).

Figure 2 (click image to enlarge.)

http://blogs-images.forbes.com/advisor/files/2011/08/2.jpg

 

The first half of 2011 maintained a range-bound upward trend until finally breaking sharply to the downside in the first week of August.

Of course now everyone wants to know what happens next?  Our research has no special predictive power of what may happen now that the trend has been broken. Instead, what our research is telling us is to remain extremely cautious at this time.  We have since moved client portfolios to almost 100% money markets and/or cash equivalents in all accounts.  We do maintain some high quality bond positions.

You may think But I cant make any money in money markets, they pay nothing these days!  True enough, but there are many times in ones investing lifetime where the best investment is to simply maintain principal.  That principal amount will be able to potentially purchase more in the not too distant future.

A simple example is stocks.  On April 29 of this year, $1,340 purchased the equivalent of one S&P 500 Index share.  Today, to own those same companies that make up the S&P 500 Index, the cost is below $1,200, yet the same amount of dividends is being received.  In this period preserving principal has resulted in increased investment purchasing power, income and potentially increased return.

There's A Recession Coming According To The Data at Forbes  The stock market peaked in April, and is behaving in the saame fashion it did in late 2007, when big troubles from real estate writedowns were spreading through the financial sector.

The most worrisome statistic this week was the Empire State Manufacturing indedx wehich was down from a minus 3.76 to a minus 7.7 a leading indicator of recession in the past. The new industrial orders index from New York remained well below zero at minus 7.8.

The Federal Reserve Board has promised to keep interest rates at zero until 2013 an admission that the economy is not expected to rebound for two years until the next President is in the White House. This policy step indicates the Fed does not believe the economy will recover either this year or next year. Never before has the centreal bank made such a policy declaration for as long a period as two years.

There were 1300 new lows in the market on August 8th another phenomenon that hasd not taken place since the great stagnation was triggered in 2008. Even though the market indexes made up all their lost ground, it appewars that investors are willing to delude themselves that  corporate profits will reemain at very high levels despite the period of austerity we are clearly entering.

The austerity required in Europe to deal with the sovereign debt crisis is likely to push Europe into a recession. This will impact US corporations dependent on important profits from Europe.

The corporate return on revenues has risen the past two years to a peak of 14% an unusually high level of profits that is not expected to continue.

Consumer savings are rising as household debt gets paid back. But, we are a long way from safety levels of savings in a high unemployment period. And the higherb the saavings rise so the lower the level of consumption will be.

Housing numbers were down 1.5% last month underscoring that the turnaround in housing is not close at hand.

 

 

Market's Swoon Should Be Your Wake Up Call

 

 

Watch Out: 2011 Looks A Lot Like The Market Top In 2007 Sean Hanlon:   Back on December 12, 2007 I wrote a market commentary that started as follows:

The equity markets have been very volatile this year, but also range bound.  A picture speaks a thousand words so all one needs to do is view the chart below of the S&P 500 Index to understand just how volatile and range bound things have been.  Specifically, since February 20, 2007, only nine and one half months or so ago, the S&P 500 Index has been down 5.86%, up 13.02%, down 9.43%, up 11.26%, down 10.09%, and now up 7.73% through 12/10/07 so far in this latest up leg!  All this in ONLY nine and one half months!

http://blogs-images.forbes.com/advisor/files/2011/07/market-commentary-1.jpg

History is repeating itself so far in 2011, which has been fraught with ups and downs in both international and domestic equity markets.  This is due to many things, including the considerable economic doubts and various countries debt situations. This uncertainty has translated into market performance with direct impacts on portfolio returns and more prominently in portfolio volatility. This volatility is best seen in the chart below of the S&P 500 Index beginning 1/1/11.

http://blogs-images.forbes.com/advisor/files/2011/07/market-commentary-2.jpg

2010 ended positivity and the momentum carried into the first two months of 2011 however the end of February began a series of events that led market returns on a whipsaw ride of ups and downs, resulting in the current universal mid-year views of market uncertainty.

What news was associated with this volatility? All the usual; crude oil prices, natural disasters, corporate earnings, politics, economic forecast revisions for both developed and emerging markets, the European debt situation, the United States debt situation and more to name just a few.

One thing is for certain; the current volatile, range bound market activity is difficult at best to profit from.  In this investing environment patience is the most important attribute.  I will be patient and will be careful until the trends are preferable.

Our strategy at Hanlon Investment Management is to attempt to minimize downside risk by exiting risk asset classes, such as equities, during periods of uncertainty, getting invested in more conservative asset classes, such as money markets and short-term bonds, and re-entering into risky asset classes when we identify them as attractive, when the trend is our friend and positive!

Having identified this volatility, in June we made defensive, tactical investment decisions that provide less exposure to these volatile, range bound markets and prepare us to re-enter the markets when they possess improved risk characteristics.

 

 

 

SEC may have destroyed documents, senator says 17 Aug 2011 The Securities and Exchange Commission may have destroyed documents and compromised enforcement case ...   Grassley: Agency may have got rid of Goldman, Madoff documents   Ronald D. Orol, MarketWatch WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) The Securities and Exchange Commission may have destroyed documents and compromised enforcement cases involving activity at large banks and hedge funds during the height of the financial crisis in 2008, according to allegations made by a lawmaker on Wednesday. From what Ive seen, it looks as if the SEC might have sanctioned some level of case-related document destruction, said Sen. Chuck Grassley, Republican of Iowa, in a letter to the agencys chairman, Mary Schapiro. Sen. Chuck Grassley  It doesnt make sense that an agency responsible for investigations would want to get rid of potential evidence. If these charges are true, the agency needs to explain why it destroyed documents, how many documents it destroyed over what timeframe, and to what extent its actions were consistent with the law. Agency staff destroyed over 9,000 files related to preliminary agency investigations, according to a letter sent in July to Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and obtained by MarketWatch. The allegations were made by SEC enforcement attorney, Darcy Flynn, in a letter to Grassley. Flynn is a current employee, and according to the letter, received a bonus for his past years work. Flynn alleges the SEC destroyed files related to matters being examined in important cases such as Bernard Madoff and a $50 billion Ponzi scheme he operated as well as an investigation involving Goldman Sachs Group Inc. GS +0.33%   trading in American International Group credit-default swaps in 2009. Flynn also alleged that the agency destroyed documents and information collected for preliminary investigations at Wells Fargo & Co. WFC +1.34% , Bank of America Corp. BAC +0.81% , Citigroup C +0.13%  , Credit Suisse CS +0.38%  , Deutsche Bank DB +0.79%  Morgan Stanley MS -0.06%  and the now-bankrupt Lehman Brothers. The letter goes into particular detail about Deutsche Bank, the former employer of current SEC enforcement chief Robert Khuzami as well as former enforcement chiefs Gary Lynch and Richard Walker…’

Sen. Chuck Grassley  It doesnt make sense that an agency responsible for investigations would want to get rid of potential evidence…’ [ Oh but it does make sense Sen. Grassley:   Report: SEC lawyer exposed FBI informant (WP) [ Clearly, the sec liar (sic lawyer) is one of those typically with a pre or post arrangement, whether implicit or explicit; you know, that ubiquitous bribe thing in pervasively corrupt, defacto bankrupt, fallen  america. Indeed, the scenario typifies that national drain / sinkhole new york (new york / new jersey metro) where, for example, FBI informants were routinely exposed by italians in the new york d.a.s office over the objection of the FBI, and were promptly dispatched/assassinated / hit by mafia / organized crime [ this was documented with authority in the book Goombata: The Improbable Rise and Fall of John Gotti and His Gang Cummings / Volkman  ]
