GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Is the FDIC outlived its usefulness and far exceeded that 205k$ limit

FDIC Seizure of Foreign Deposits at SVB Opens Pandora’s Box at JPMorgan Chase and Citi – Which Hold a Combined $1 Trillion in Foreign Deposits with No FDIC Insurance
By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: May 15, 2023 ~

*** begin quote ***

If you have been following the banking crisis, you have likely read at least a dozen times that on March 12 federal banking regulators, with the consent of the U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, invoked the “systemic risk exception” in order to protect both insured and uninsured depositors at the two banks that failed in March – Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.

That’s why there were gasps of shock on Saturday evening at around 5:30 p.m. when the Wall Street Journal (paywall) published the stunning news that depositors in the Cayman Islands’ branch of Silicon Valley Bank had their deposits seized by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), which they are unlikely to ever see again.

As Wall Street On Parade has previously reported, under statute, the FDIC cannot insure deposits held on foreign soil by U.S. banks. What it can do, however, is to sell those deposits to the bank that acquires the collapsed bank. In the case of Silicon Valley Bank, the acquiring bank was First Citizens Bancshares which, apparently, declined to purchase the foreign deposits in the secrecy jurisdiction of the Cayman Islands, a jurisdiction most notable recently for housing Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto house of frauds.

It’s hard to imagine any Gooferment policy, program, or agency that doesn’t far outlive its usefulness.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Mexican police and “justice” fail!

Roxana Ruiz, who strangled her rapist, sentenced to 6 years in prison, activists slam decision

Ruiz fought back and struck him in the face, causing a nosebleed.

The man then allegedly threatened to kill her.

In the struggle that followed, Ruiz grabbed a T-shirt and used it to strangle her attacker.

In a panic, Ruiz stuffed the man’s body in a bag and dragged it out to the street, where passing police caught her red-handed.

Despite telling police she had been raped and acted in self-defense, Carrera said a forensic exam was never taken — a crucial step in prosecuting sexual violence cases.

Instead, an officer allegedly told Ruiz that she probably wanted to have sex with the man at first and then changed her mind.

“I regret what I did, but if I hadn’t done it, I would be dead today,” Ruiz said in an interview last year.

“It’s evident that the state wants to shut us up, wants us to be submissive, wants us closed up inside, wants us dead,” she added.

Why are the police deciding not to do a “rape kit”?

If the facts as stated are correct, then this appears to be a miscarriage of justice.

WASHINGTON — The FBI has refused to give Congress an informant file alleging that President Biden took bribes while he was vice president, The Post has learned — setting up a possible showdown over access to the information.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued a legally binding subpoena last week requiring the FBI to turn over the file by noon Wednesday, but the bureau instead replied with a six-page letter raising various objections.

“Information from confidential human sources is unverified and, by definition, incomplete,” wrote FBI acting assistant director for congressional affairs Christopher Dunham, who also argued that informant reports must also be kept private to protect sources.

Last year, President Biden signed the The Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education and Research (Faster) Act, which was intended to improve product labeling and cleaning around allergens. However, rather than clean better and safeguard against sesame cross-contamination, many manufacturers have started adding sesame flour deliberately into products that were previously sesame free. This relieves them of the burden of meticulous cleaning since the product is now clearly labeled as containing sesame. Malicious (corporate) compliance. Source:

Chico school board upholds ‘parental secrecy policy’ regarding students’ gender identity

  • “The day my daughter shared with her guidance counselor that she felt like a boy, the counselor immediately affirmed this new identity.”

Wednesday evening the Chico Unified School Board in Chico, California voted 3-2 in favor of schools having the ability to keep secrets from parents. The board agreed to keep their current policy, which directs staff to not reveal a child’s gender identity to parents, it instead allows a child to determine when the school is allowed to tell parents about a change in their gender identity. 

According to a report from Fox News, the policy, called the “parental secrecy policy” by the school board, came up for a vote after the Center for American Liberty filed a lawsuit against the school district. The lawsuit was brought on behalf of Aurora Regino who told her story to the school board before the vote. The suit alleges that a school guidance counselor in the district helped Region’s 11-year old daughter transition without her knowledge or consent.

Always save a piece of what you test, Mary Jane Burton instructed her watchful trainee.

But why? This was 1977, years before the invention of DNA testing. Yet day after day, she repeated this seemingly pointless procedure under the glow of the cramped laboratory’s fluorescent lights — taping swabs smeared with blood, semen and saliva and inserting them into their case files.

Standard procedure in Virginia was for biological evidence to be returned to the authorities after testing. After a few years, it would be destroyed, except in death penalty cases.

Why Mary Jane Burton insisted on saving such samples is as big a mystery as Burton herself.

Some speculate that Burton had a premonition that science would improve, that the samples she saved would one day prove useful. Her trainee, Deanne Dabbs, recalls a simpler explanation: Burton just liked to have something physical to show to a jury when she testified. Juries like to see what you’ve worked on, Burton told Dabbs in 1977.

At the same time that Department of Justice officials were using spying and corruption statutes to aggressively pursue Donald Trump’s allies based on what turned out to be rumor and innuendo, they declined to use those same laws to investigate evidence of wrongdoing involving Biden family members and one of their corrupt Chinese business partners, DOJ documents and federal court records reveal.  

In 2016-2017, the evidence shows, the FBI raided the offices and intercepted the communications of Chi Ping “Patrick” Ho, a Chinese national suspected of espionage even as he was negotiating business deals with former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and brother James.  

DOJ later used information obtained from the searches and wiretaps – which included conversations with the current President’s son and brother – to convict Ho of bribery and money laundering, as part of a separate corruption case involving United Nations officials. But it declined to tap into its trove of evidence – including “over 100,000 emails” – to explore the connections between Ho and the Bidens, who received millions of dollars from Ho and a Chinese intelligence front and discussed sharing office space.

Karas said that the judge concluded that any potential prosecutorial misconduct by Champion “was not prejudicial” to Tellis.

The Cell Phone Evidence

Intelligence Analyst Paul Rowlett testified about Chambers’ and Tellis’ phone data, and claimed that phone data put Chambers and Tellis together at the same location just before, or possibly even during, Chambers’ murder. The defense team has questioned Rowlett about the accuracy of the data.

Another troubling point for the defense is the fact that Tellis deleted all the texts and calls between he and Chambers after her death. Tellis, who has always maintained his innocence, stated that he deleted the data because he did not want a dead person’s information in his phone.

The cell phone data appears damning, but according to Karas, cell phone tower pings and other related evidence are not always conclusive — especially in rural areas where there are only a few towers. In these cases, she says, experts have told her that the location of the cell phone can only be narrowed down to an “around two to 10 or 20 square mile area.”

There were also SIGNIFICANT differences between the two trials that the second jury wasn’t told about that were dispositive.  In my recollection, they mostly went AGAINST the prosecution.

  • The shoddy police work around crime scene search may have missed critical and “finding and photographing” the keys certainly was an attempt to fabricate evidence.
  • The testimony of the first responders in the first trial was very authentic; in the second, they all sounded rehearsed and coached.
  • The cell phone data was unbelievable and unreliable.
  • Where did they dig up the witness that supposedly gave him a ride? Her testimony had to be the result of a quid pro quo from the prosecutor for her son.
  • They couldn’t find the guy that found the keys was totally bogus.

Now this fellow definitely was not the sharpest tack in the box, and probably was a “bad guy” for other things, but the prosecution failed to make a good case.

I especially like the candid gang leader who said: “If he did it, he was a pretty dumb ***** to think he could burn up a white woman in Mississippi and get away with it.”

I don’t think the prosecution came close to proving their case and how can prosecutorial misconduct NOT prejudice the case against the defendant.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Seymour Hersh puts the Nordstram bombing clearly on the USA Gooferment’s doorstep

How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline

  • The New York Times called it a “mystery,” but the United States executed a covert sea operation that was kept secret—until now

Seymour Hersh

*** begin quote ***

Last June, the Navy divers, operating under the cover of a widely publicized mid-summer NATO exercise known as BALTOPS 22, planted the remotely triggered explosives that, three months later, destroyed three of the four Nord Stream pipelines, according to a source with direct knowledge of the operational planning.

Two of the pipelines, which were known collectively as Nord Stream 1, had been providing Germany and much of Western Europe with cheap Russian natural gas for more than a decade. A second pair of pipelines, called Nord Stream 2, had been built but were not yet operational. Now, with Russian troops massing on the Ukrainian border and the bloodiest war in Europe since 1945 looming, President Joseph Biden saw the pipelines as a vehicle for Vladimir Putin to weaponize natural gas for his political and territorial ambitions.

Asked for comment, Adrienne Watson, a White House spokesperson, said in an email, “This is false and complete fiction.” Tammy Thorp, a spokesperson for the Central Intelligence Agency, similarly wrote: “This claim is completely and utterly false.”

Biden’s decision to sabotage the pipelines came after more than nine months of highly secret back and forth debate inside Washington’s national security community about how to best achieve that goal. For much of that time, the issue was not whether to do the mission, but how to get it done with no overt clue as to who was responsible.

Withey and his crew, a total of 25, including seven senior citizens, made their way into Pine Hill Primary Center and took shelter — respectfully setting up only what was needed.

Lucy Studey McKiddy, 53, claims that her father, Donald Dean Studey, was a serial killer who forced her and her siblings to dump the bodies of women he killed into a 100ft well.

She said that Studey, who died in March 2013 aged 75, was ‘routinely drunk’ and liked to kill women by smashing or kicking in their heads inside a trailer.

My first thought was didn’t someone in Iowa notice that 70 women disappeared.

My second thought was why didn’t Lucy Studey McKiddy come forward sooner — 2013 might have been a good time if she was afraid of the 75 year old man.  Sometime between now and the last 40! Years would have been better.

Of course, it’s the Gooferment’s fault for not discovering this sooner or allow women to defend themselves with a handgun.  If I had a daughter, then I’d be sure that she knew how to defend herself. Argh!

We currently have partnership law.  Anyone can form a legal partnership.  

Where in the Constitution is there a Federal enumerated power to regulate “marriage”?

Just like SCOTUS said the Federal Gooferment has no role in aboirtion, so to it needs to declare the legislation as unconstitutional.


GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Biden proves “his labor-friendly” pedigree

Joe Biden signs bill axing rail-worker sick days plea before royals meeting

WASHINGTON — President Biden signed legislation Friday forcing railway unions to accept a labor agreement despite worker objections to a lack of paid sick days — hours before hobnobbing with visiting British royals.

Biden regularly calls himself the “most pro-union president” in history but asked Congress to intervene Monday, saying the US economy could not bear a railway shutdown.

Wonder where in the Constitution we find the Federal Gooferment’s power to force railway unions to accept a labor agreement?

I hope all the good Democratic unions are happy with their choice for President.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Defense Department Records Reveal U.S. Funding of Anthrax Laboratory Activities in Ukraine

Judicial Watch: Defense Department Records Reveal U.S. Funding of Anthrax Laboratory Activities in Ukraine

  • The records were obtained in response to a February 28, 2022, Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency for records regarding the funding of Black & Veatch involving work of any manner with biosafety laboratories in the country of Ukraine.

*** begin quote ***

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it received 345 pages of records from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), a component of the U.S. Department of Defense, revealing that the United States funded anthrax laboratory activities in a Ukrainian biolab in 2018. Dozens of pages are completely redacted, and many others are heavily redacted. The records show over $11 million in funding for the Ukraine biolabs program in 2019.

I guess that Putin was correct about his charge of bio weapons labs in the Ukraine.


GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The Gooferment should have NO role in “flood Insurance”

Flood Insurance: A Modest Proposal

*** begin quote ***

All of this raises a simple question. What is the best way to deal with this sort of natural disaster? Where I live, it’s an inconvenience from which I can easily recover. That’s a lot like Tornado Alley where some people die each year, but most are unaffected. And even though California gets a lot of earthquakes, most people aren’t seriously affected and, contrary to Red State fever dreams, California won’t slide into the Pacific Ocean with the next temblor, thus favorably altering the political balance of the country. In short, there are natural challenges everywhere. But a few places are more challenged than others.

*** and ***

If every property owner had to purchase flood/hurricane insurance on an open market, it’s likely a lot would not be able to come up with the scratch. It would be just too rich for their blood. But in 1968, the Feds decided that it would be good to “help” out coastal communities. They would have to do some land use planning, but ultimately, the lure of higher local tax bases won out. Over time, subsidized rates became the norm as President Obama finalized them in 2014.

Subsidized flood insurance means that sensitive barrier island ecologies are disrupted by massive cancers of concrete, steel, and lumber. When a storm at sea leads to high waves and beach erosion, the State of Florida dumps millions of dollars harvested from inland on those beaches in the form of megatons of sand. “Someone’s home is about to be washed out to sea!”

*** and ***

We must get the government out of the flood insurance business. Stopping it overnight is probably a bad idea because current owners have a legal “reliance interest” in the program. So a stepwise approach must be found. The simplest approach might be called the “Hurricane Ian” solution. Every building wiped out by the storm would fall under this proposal.

If you lost your home or business due to the storm and were covered by Federal flood insurance, the Feds should pay you the full pre-storm value of the property, including the dirt. Then, the Feds would turn the property over to the state for full demolition and return to nature with a deed restriction that prevents construction on the site. Obviously, there would be an exception for basic park facilities such as parking lots and restrooms, but residences of any sort would be completely forbidden. In a subsequent storm, those would be relatively inexpensive and easy to rebuild.

In our current example, Sanibel Island would become a State Park nature preserve instead of a high-end residential community. The high rise resorts would go away, either because room rents were too high for most or because storm damage was severe. Much of Fort Myers Beach would undergo the same treatment. But neither area would be eligible for building.

*** and ***

The only losers in this approach would be the people who simply “can’t” give up their beach lifestyle and the municipalities that would see their tax base shrink. I’ll shed a few crocodile tears for them.

I most heartily agree.  And, while “taxation is theft”, we can never allow our search for liberty to get in the way of a good idea to get us “more freedom”.


GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Surprise there is a a shortage of … … some thing the Gooferment “manages”!
California’s Water Supply Falls Victim to CRT
By Don A. Wright

*** begin quote ***

When did the board’s mandate change from a bureaucracy administering water rights to an arbitrator and avenger of perceived injustices? At exactly the same moment the people of California stopped holding their government accountable because they thought someone else would do it for them. It gets serious when your family’s food supply can be negatively impacted.

*** end quote ***

William Rusher, the editor of the conservative National Review, quoted economist Milton Friedman as saying that “if the government were to take over the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in five years.”

Here we have a Gooferment taking over water and now there is a shortage?

Like anything else, the invisible hand of the fee market would do  much better job of allocating a scarce resource.  If folks paid for water and the price went up, the usual behavior would be conservation and alternatives.

Anyone in the Pepuls Republik of Kaliforkneeah considering desalinization?  I hear is works well in Israel.



GOVEROTRAGEOUS: FBI framed Trump and should be abolished

Utter proof the FBI framed Trump and shielded Hunter

More to the point, though, that the FBI offered to pay such an exorbitant sum in hopes Steele’s anti-Trump claims could be backed up is proof positive the bureau knew these claims were not verified.

That is key. The rules of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and the Justice Department mandate the FBI must verify information before submitting it to the court in applying for surveillance warrants. Even though it could not prove the Steele allegations and had every reason to know they were exaggerated if not out-and-out false, the FBI relied on the Steele claims in sworn applications.

It gets worse. The FBI obtained FISC surveillance warrants to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in October 2016 and mid-January 2017, representing to the court that Trump appeared to be in a corrupt conspiracy with the Kremlin. Finally, in late January, the FBI interviewed Danchenko, who debunked Steele’s reporting. Nevertheless, even after speaking with Danchenko, the bureau continued relying on Steele’s allegations when — again under oath — it persuaded the court to extend the surveillance in April and June 2017.

*** and ***

Of course, what the FBI didn’t mention was that what Danchenko had been “truthful and cooperative” about was the fact Steele’s claims were sheer nonsense. Thus, FISC judges were led to believe Danchenko had verified Steele’s reporting when the truth was just the opposite.

​So when do we disband the FBI? And, send people to jail!


Specifically, all those that testified and swore in the FISA courts should be convicted.

If they are lawyers, disbarred.

Starbucks may hire them.

Absolutely disgraceful.

And no one in DC is on the war path!
