Fascism at the FED and the NY Federal District Court? I’m Shocked, Shocked . . .

Thu, May 22, 2014 - 12:17pm

Recently, Judge Ronnie Abrams (a female), issued a ruling dismissing the whistleblower case that former Goldman Sachs bank examiner Carmen M. Segarra filed against the venerable Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The case is found on Pacer, Case Number 1:13-cv-07173-RA, captioned Carmen M. Segarra vs. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, et al. Mr. TF asked me to weigh in on it, which I am most happy to oblige, because I am part of his cult . . .

Running a quick google search reveals the top story on it is, naturally, from the traditional media, here: https://www.reuters.com/article/2014/04/23/nyfed-goldman-lawsuit-idUSL2N...

Basically, Ms. Segarra claimed she was fired for whistleblowing, that is, for reporting bad behavior by her employer, which in this case, happened to be the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. She wanted reinstatement, some money, and for her attorney’s fees to be paid by the defendants. She also asked for punitive damages. She filed suit in the den of thieves, the US Federal District Court for the Southern District of NY.

As an aside, why would anyone suing a bank, let alone part of the evil fiat scheme, the bank of last resort, The NY Fed, EVER in a million years think for one second that a sitting federal judge in the Southern District of NY, such judge appointed by the President, and confirmed by the Senate, who themselves are demonstrably and inexorably, hopelessly corrupted by bankers who own them, ever, ever think that a fair outcome would result? I can surmise that Carmen, probably quite intelligent, is simply unable to critically evaluate the corruption inherent in the system, since her very professional existence, grotesque as it is, is hopelessly bound up within that very system. She became, simply, an irritant to the host, who promptly expelled her.

Indeed, there are salacious details of a conflict of interest, linking the judge to banking interests, and which upon even a cursory look, reveal the rotting stench of corruption permeating this entire case. Anyway, back to the story.

According to the Complaint, Ms. Segarra set forth four claims: a violation of federal law, specifically, 12 U.S.C. § 1831, a violation of state statutory law, NY Business Law § 349, as well two claims under common law for wrongful termination in violation of public policy, and breach of contract. She added two more state law claims in her First Amended Complaint. For all you Constitutionally challenged types out there, a Federal Court is limited in its jurisdiction. A plaintiff must allege a violation of federal law, or satisfy diversity requirements. Diversity did not exist, since plaintiff and defendants were both from NY. Hence, for the US Federal District Court to have jurisdiction over the case, Ms. Segarra had to allege a violation of federal law.

So, Ms. Segarra alleged the 12 U.S.C. § 1831 claim. This is a technical statute, and Ms. Segarra had to fall within its purview in order to be able to assert a claim under it.

The defense was simple: they moved to dismiss the case based on lack of federal question jurisdiction. That is, the Fed said that Ms. Segarra was not entitled to relief under federal law because the federal law did not apply in her situation. For technical reasons, too arcane, and quite frankly, too boring for me to discuss this late Wednesday night, the Fed’s lawyers successfully persuaded the corrupt District Court judge to dismiss the case. Importantly, the judge dismissed the federal law claim, but did not terminate the case in a fatal manner as to the state law claims.

Thus, Ms. Segarra’s lawsuit is not dead and buried. No, it is just going to have to be litigated in state court, or Ms. Segarra will have to appeal the judge’s ruling dismissing the federal law claim.

Remember, the federal court dismissed the case from FEDERAL COURT, finding that since the federal law cited by Ms. Segarra did not apply, then the FEDERAL COURT was without jurisdiction to adjudicate the remaining STATE LAW CLAIMS.

In the Order dismissing the case, the judge said this:

“Plaintiff invoked the Court’s jurisdiction by asserting that the FAC raised a federal
question. (FAC ¶ 10.) Because the Court concludes that Plaintiff has failed to state a claim
under 18 U.S.C. § 1831j—her only federal cause of action—it concludes that this is the “the
usual case in which all federal-law claims are eliminated before trial” such that it should
“declin[e] to exercise jurisdiction over the remaining state-law claims.” Carnegie-Mellon Univ.
v. Cohill, 484 U.S. 343, 350 n.7 (1988); see also Kolari v. New York-Prebyterian Hosp., 455
F.3d 118, 119 (2d Cir. 2006). It therefore dismisses her state law claims without prejudice.”

The Order is filed as docket entry 51, and the docket entry says this:

“CLERK'S JUDGMENT: It is, ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED: That for the reasons stated in the Court's Opinion and Order dated April 23, 2014, Defendants' motion to dismiss the First Amended Complaint is granted, Count One fails to state a claim under U.S.C. § 1831j, and the Court declines to exercise jurisdiction over the remaining state-law claims; Plaintiff's motion seeking leave to file a Second Amended Complaint is denied, as are the other requests made in Plaintiff's April 11, 2014 letters; accordingly, the case is closed. (Signed by Clerk of Court Ruby Krajick on 04/24/2014) (Attachments: # 1 Right to Appeal)(km) (Entered: 04/24/2014)”

See? The federal law claim is gone, but the state law claims can be refiled in state court.

For reasons known to them, Ms. Segarra’s lawyers filed a notice of appeal, on May 20, 2014.

Let’s see what happens, legally, stay tuned.

Meanwhile, let us not forget the MOPE about the story.

Look at the headline from the traditional media:

“NY Fed wins dismissal of lawsuit by examiner who faulted Goldman.” Story is here: https://www.reuters.com/article/2014/04/23/nyfed-goldman-lawsuit-idUSL2N...

While true, it hardly tells the story, now does it?

I would have written the headline like this:

“Fired NY Fed bank examiner’s federal claim dismissed by Judge alleged to have conflict of interest.”

See the difference? What images come to mind based on the different headlines? See how the game is played?

Also, NOWHERE in the mainstream press article, is there a single mention of the reality of the federal judge’s ruling. NY FED did not “win” anything. It was a legal ruling on a technical ground, that is dubious, made by a corrupted federal judge with a clear, and recusal worthy compelling reason to have never sat in judgment on the case at all. The “examiner” was an employee, who sued her employer, for corruption. This use of tame language like “faulted” is laughable. The law does not use terms like “fault.” It uses terms like “failure to use reasonable care,” “fraud,” and “malice.”

Look at this headline: “Heirs of deceased Nicole Brown fault OJ Simpson.” See?

If one looks, one may find an article that delves a little deeper, like here: https://wallstreetonparade.com/2014/05/a-mangled-case-of-justice-on-wall...

But for real news, with no spin, told fairly, one must search out independent viewpoints.

Keep preparing everyone, and do not be afraid to seek out the truth from independent sources.

Thank you flyinkel

I pray K.S.., that the Good Lord will always continue to Bless you and yours, for you alone stood out and shined brightly last November, thus caught my attention and earned my respect. And I take it on Faith that you truly understand the meaning of 'Semper Fidelis' and thus willing to Walk the Walk no matter what. Just as the Faithful will ALWAYS Honor “Independence Day” on 04 July, and “Christmas” on 25 December, so the Faithful will ALWAYS and Forever Honor Those who are Our Fallen Patriots in Liberty (who paid the Ultimate Sacrifice of their very Lives) ONLY on 30th of May, ( True "Memorial" Day) and may those Public Servants, their marxist Unions, Congress, and politically expedient Sheople who kowtowed merely so public employee's could have a “Three Day Weekend/Vacation” get everything they deserve!

Also, I sincerely hope that you do not overlook the truth so compelling, powerful, and “self evident truth” in John Philpot Curran's admonishment, such as that even Thomas Jefferson could not help himself but to repeatedly quote and/or paraphrase from same.

Same Truth applies to the Millennia old Maxim of Law cited in Black's Law Dictionary. So: “Teach Your Children Well”

BTW: During WWII, it became painfully obvious to members of the U.S. Armed Forces,especially the Marine Corps., that even though American Citizens wished to show appreciation for America's brave and gallant young Heros who willingly faced the enemies of Liberty, nevertheless due to their preconceived notions of what such battle tested, and returning heroes should look like (ie Adonis), and realizing that their cognitive dissonance was being shattered, leaving them feeling repulsed by the battered and maimed horrible truth of what they actually saw.

However, the United States Marine Corps understood how important it was to bridge such a heartbreaking gap, by allowing those American Citizens who could neither face or stomach the realities of War, the face saving opportunity to at least show their appreciation for the dedication and sacrifice of all of Our U.S. Marines via the dedication and discipline of the U.S.M.C. Silent Drill Platoon.

And I fully realize that many may be quick to disparage the U.S.M.C. Silent Drill Platoon as mere “window dressing” or perhaps outright propaganda to bolster the military industrial complex, and I will not deny that those inducted on top of those yellow foot prints at Parris Island still to this day rib, and refer to brethen Marines who did their basic training at Pendelton as “Hollywood Marines” versus real “MARINES”, however this was/is merely due to their good fortune of having Sun & Surf vs. having to contend with the scourge of those F*n infernal sand fleas on PI.

Nevertheless, I can assure everyone herein that each and every member of the U.S.M.C. Silent Drill Platoon fully grasps the privilege and accompanying burden of winning a spot thereon, and thus would rather face any other humilation known or unknown to mankind, rather than to bring upon themselves the personal shame of any imperfection which would disgrace and embarass not only their fellow Platoon members, but every single U.S. Marine who faithfully served, sacrificed and suffered and no longer retains their “Adonis” looks , and thus they willingly suffer and endure the long, tediuous and monotonous hours of drilling, and committment to practicing until either perfection or purgatory!

Please America, Wake the Hell Up, and indeed, ALL of “Western Civilization”. The hearts of these young Americans are pure, as is their devotion. Do not let such dedication be wasted through the malevolent machinations of the Int'l Criminal Counterfeiting Bankster Cartel.

With an open heart and mind, please watch The USMC Silent Drill Platoon honoring ALL U.S. Marines. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y90UPLLo6nY

And Kudos to all who can grasp the significance as to WHY these Marines are “Silent”.

@ J. Galt - Winning Strategies

Re: “What may interest you is ...”

Right back at you J.G., as old Rex wasn't born last night, and can clearly see that your heart is in the right place however, you simply lack proper training in the fundamental basics, as well as over six decades of experience in the subject matters. Thus the quote given by Benjamin Franklin.

Ergo, never let ego prevent oneself from reaping the benefits of Others' hard earned Wisdom. And everyone would do well to learn from the parable of the “Non Conforming Sparrow” as “Not everyone who sh*ts on you is necessarily your enemy”

as they may simply be trying wake you up and get your attention.

Since ol' Rex's days on this Earth are truly few and numbered, thus does not care if B.S. patriot myth-information found on the internet is the result from either a deliberate dis-informer, or a well meaning, albeit total ignoramus/ useful idiot, the results of which nevertheless are totally the same and such useless Rabbit Hole enticements live on indefinitely waiting for those who unwittingly parrot such at the immense detriment to the cause of true Liberty.

Ergo, the Wise will overlook the coarse bark of Ol' Rex and simply focus on the Message rather than being duped into taking things “personal”, since it is the very trademark of the Deceivers, Con Men and Hypocrites to sugarcoat, use “political correctness”. and hide behind the mask of “civility” to dupe the naive.

Anyone who doubts this fact need only to ask of themselves WHY the Prophets in the Old Testament were invariably Put To Death! [ie: Who in the Hell do you think you ARE to give us “truth” unvarnished? The peril for violating “civility” and our cognitive dissonance is DEATH, (aka “Kill the Messenger”) ]

Lest anyone jump to the wrong conclusion, I readily admit that I do not own any Copyright or Patent on either Wisdom or “Truth” since such entirely belongs to Our Creator, and believe it when I say that recipients of such have invariably paid the corresponding "double edged sword" cost of such, as Silver is tested in Fire, and Gold always tested in the Furnace! (No sane individual would knowingly ask or otherwise volunteer for this "gift"!)

Make no mistake as the Age of Grace is rapidly approaching its End. Our Redeemer and Savior pulled No Punches when it came to a blatantly obvious and particular breed of our Human Race, and regardless of what anyone might have otherwise been led to believe, such was definitely and undeniably the entrenched STATUS QUO! (ie Each & ALL of the Lawyers, Judges, Rabbis/Ministers, Rulers/ Legislators of the Day who found it politically expedient to “go along to get along”!

Wake Up Everybody! “Israel” was never/is NOT merely a spot on a Map, but rather a “People” and the Place where Liberty abides for those appreciating such.

Anyone who doubts this truth need merely to ask themselves why America is specifically NOT mentioned in the book of Revelations, unless of course they are afraid that the “light will come on” allowing them to ultimately connect the “Dots”, especially since the rest of the World is currently doing so, and totally fed up with getting Ripped Off via the Int'l Criminal Bankster Cartel / Money Changers (U.S. sanctioned, to our detriment) counterfeit fiat paper IOUs scam.

LEARN from History, lest we be condemned to repeat it! (eg While the “Western Roman Empire” debased and debauched its currency thus causing the slide into the “Dark Ages”, the Eastern (aka Byzantine) Roman Empire under Emperor Constantine held fast and maintained the integrity of the gold Solidus, and thus not only survived but flourished for another Thousand Years right up to precisely the point where it also succumbed to the siren song of “notes” / check book “money”, and the Muslims subsequently conquered “Christian Constantinople” ever since known as: “Istanbul”

Thus everyone needs to Grow Up, Wake the Hell Up and Learn: Leviticus 19:36; Deuteronomy 25:15-16 and Proverbs 20:10;23 or We All will suffer the Consequence.

Everyone needs to realize that every Patriot, Martyr and Saint Willingly Paid a Price by Walking the Walk, since this World merely exists to give each of us the opportunity to willingly demonstrate that we are worthy of entering Eternal Life in the next World which Our Creator has made for us.

Seriously, which is more pathetic? The One who sells their Soul in this World for temporal gain, or the One who simply relinquishes, surrenders and forfeits their Soul just to "go along to get along"?

Proverbs 13:20

Cheers & Semper Fi,

From Spartacus Rex above, Great, just Great, multiple hat tips

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. Frederick Douglass, "If There Is No Struggle, There Is No Progress"

@ Rex re: Winning Strategies

Thank you for your extensive reply. What may interest you is that I fundamentally agree with everything you say. Yes, Rex, we are fundamentally on the same page.

However, there is one thing that really muddies my perspective on what WILL happen when push comes to shove, and that is this:

When the chips are on the table it matters little what people SAY they will do, or what logic/theory says they WILL or SHOULD do under those same circumstances, but what they will ACTUALLY do.

The reason I say that is this: as a younger man I enjoyed more than my share of nights out with "the boys". Every so often one of them would get into a little dust up with another guy, and before you know it the disagreement escalates. When that happens and your buddy is outnumbered the #1 rule of the Bro Code is that you stand up and cover his back. Although that is how things work in theory, the reality is that more often than not guys that should have been standing with you suddenly fade into the background - perhaps they went for a whiz as they saw things heating up, or maybe they didn't notice the action and 'woulda been there' had they known. Needless to say you learn quickly who real friends are.

I truly hope that when the chips are down that enough talkers also walk the walk to make your theory a reality.

Are you safer,

...being friends with Bill and Hillary or residing in Chicago?

...being deployed chasing the Taliban in Afghanistan or living in Houston?

...flying a fighter jet or driving to work (or school)?

...being an evangelical preacher or posting on a blog on the internet?

...working for the US Border Patrol or selling street drugs in Denver?

...eating GMO corn or criticizing the President?

And many more. Don't know the answers, just wondering.

Off Topic, on cancer

Ag 1969 runs a forum thread called Healthy Food and Healthy Living under the "Forums Tab" then go to "Active Topics" and scroll down until you see the thread.

BagOfGold posted a Ty Bollinger video on cancer that is excellent. If you actively keep up with the latest on GMO foods, Bt, glyphosphate, and our how our allopathic cancer remedies may be lacking, this is not the post for you.

It is however, one of the best short presentations I have seen and is an excellent video to send to friends and family to wake them up to the present dangers in the food chain and how these dangers are ruining our health; especially in the realm of intentionally creating inflammation in the human body the precursor to a multitude of debilitating diseases.

I am surprised few folks have watched the video, having watched and read a plethora of publications, I can say everything he says, everything, is substantiated by independent resources and true to the best of my knowledge. It is also a very condensed presentation with specific examples given. It does hype a show that is coming up, which is a little off putting, but the information given in that quick interview is right on target.

You are here, ostensibly, because you love PMs, make sure you have the health to enjoy them. Watch the video. Be well.
