With special sentiments for RICHARD FINE, RONALD GOTTSCHALK, and all other oppressed People of Los Angeles County, California, and beyond:

Dr Zernik also documented the refusal of Sheriff LEROY BACA to certify the electronic records, which he had produced as the arrest and booking records of those, whom he was falsely imprisoning at the time in the medical facilities of the Los Angeles County jails, on behalf of the LA-JR (Los Angeles Judiciary Racket).

Clerk of the Court Sarah Lifschitz; Director of the Courts Administration Judge Moshe Gal, Supreme Court of Israel
Jerusalem, January 31 - Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), has forwarded to the Courts Administration a request for records, pertaining to the identity of those holding the ultimate administrative authority for the servers of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel. [1]   

A series of reports, recently published online by Dr Zernik, has first shown a pattern of online publication of simulated records on the servers (ELYON1 and ELYON2), [2,3] and the failure and refusal of the Office of the Clerk of the Supreme Court to certify the Court's own records. [4-6] Furthermore, ambiguity was shown in the identity certifications of the Supreme Court servers. [7]
The 2010 report of the Israeli Ombudsman Judge (Ret) Lindenstrauss, [8] raised serious concern regarding the integrity of the development and implementation of the computer systems of the Israeli courts as well.  Several corporations were involved in development with no bidding and with no core supervision by state employees.  The corporations were only identified in the Ombudsman's report as A, B, and C.  Media identified the corporations: EDS, Teldor, and IBM Global Services[9-11]
"Today's request attempts to establish, who indeed maintains and safeguards the integrity of the records of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel," concludes Dr Zernik, "The evidence so far would lead any reasonable person to conclude that it is NOT the Clerk of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel."

Dr Zernik had previously shown the refusal of the Clerk of the Los Angeles Superior Court and the Clerks of the US courts from coast to coast to certify their own decisions, orders, and judgments, which were published in the same courts' online public access systems.  "Any court, where the Clerk refuses to certify the Court's own records, is certified corrupt," says Dr Zernik, "it is part of a global culture of Corporate-Government Criminality." [12-13]
According to Dr Zernik, a critical difference between conditions in the US and in Israel is that in Israel, both computing and legal scholars are willing to discuss the problems and  propose solutions.  Legal and computing experts in the United States have consistently refused to opine on these matters. [14-16]
Integrity of the electronic record systems of the courts is critical in the safeguard of Human Rights and Socio-economic Development in the digital era.

12-01-30 Vistas in Legal Economic Theory // Vistas en Teoría Económica Legal // 在合法的经济理论的新局面 //

Vistas in Legal-Economic Theory: Perpetual corporate immunity as a major intangible capital asset and a driving force in socio-economic development, or lack thereof
A capital asset, which can and should be enumerated. The immunity for past and future criminality is beneficial to the executives, and detrimental to the shareholders.  As such, the immunity should be recognized as a driving force in recent mergers and acquisitions.  European nations should likewise entertain this analytic framework in contemplating their own "settlements".  Welcome to the Robber Baron Revival Era! Willkommen auf der neu Raub Ritter Zeit!
[]  [] [] []
Los Angeles and Jerusalem, January 30 - in view of President Obama's staunch campaign for a US-wide "settlement" of criminality against the People by banking institutions, Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), proposed to the economic/legal community a new theory: Perpetual corporate immunity as a major capital asset.
  • The final bill will effectively cover both past and future criminality.
The proposed "settlement" cannot be reasonably deemed applicable only to past conduct.  The conduct is ongoing, and part of a pattern of Corporate-Government Partnership in Criminality, patronized by the courts.  Therefore, the immunity for past criminality was already in effect prior to President Obama's initiative.  As currently presented, the new initiative may need to be periodically renewed.  However, this deficiency is likely to be resolved behind closed doors in conference of the House and Senate, in order to streamline the work of future Congresses and to increase long-term markets stability.
  • The immunity will be transferrable and perpetual.
Legal-economic theorist should recognize that such immunities are already effectively perpetual, pursuant to the US law, and therefore transferrable upon mergers, acquisitions, and changes of control.  The best case study in this respect is the immunity for both past and future criminality, which had been vested in Countrywide Financial Corporation at least since the early 2000's.  Upon close examination of the events since January 2008, one must conclude that it was fully transferable, and since the July 1, 2008 takeover is vested in Bank of America.
  • The immunity is a major capital asset, which can, and should be enumerated.
In examining corporate takeovers and acquisitions, the decision making process and accounting, the immunity should be consider a major asset.  In the taking over Countrywide Financial Corporation, Bank of America paid ~$4.5 billions in stock. In return, Bank of America received a corporation with billions of dollars in negative assets, billions of dollars in civil legal liabilities, and clear and present criminal liabilities to top it off.   The only way to rationalize the transaction within the framework of current legal-economic theory, is to assume that the large discrepancy was offset by the transfer of the Countrywide's immunity to Bank of America, even if this part of the transaction was left confidential.
  • Perpetual corporate immunity for criminality is a unique corporate asset, with differential benefits for executives and shareholders.
As seen in the Bank of America- Countrywide case, this major asset, had differential effects and yields:
Shareholders of Bank of America lost about 90% of the value of their holdings.   The executives were vastly enriched.
  • The differential effect of this the immunity is a major driving force in contemporary socio-economic development, or lack thereof.
This differential effect can be explained by the fact that the market implicitly comprehended the nature of the transactions.  Following the merger, some analysts described Bank of America quarterly reports as "delusional".  Obviously, there was no concern in Bank of America with filing fraudulent reports.  Current share price reflects market sentiments regarding this management style -Corporate-Government Partnership in Criminality.  On the other hand, the same legal-economic factors led to continued escalation in executives' compensation.  The differential effect should be recognized as a major driving force in contemporary socio-economic development, or lack thereof.
  • European nations should entertain this analytic framework
In contemplating their own "settlements", European nations should also consider the expected outcome - economic stagnation and impoverishment of the People.  The immunity provided to the medieval German Robber Barons and the immunity acquired by American corporations during the American Robber Baron Era, are clear historic precedents of the same processes.

Four Psychologists at the Gates of Hell: A Fable for Our Time

Sunday 29 January 2012
by: Roy Eidelson, Truthout | Fable
 

"In 2005, despite evidence that psychologists were involved in abusive and torturous interrogations of national security detainees, [the] American Psychological Association (APA) ... concluded that psychologists play a critical role in keeping such interrogations 'safe, legal, ethical and effective'....With this stance, the APA, the largest association of psychologists worldwide, became the sole major professional health care organization to support practices contrary to the international human rights standards that ought to be the benchmark against which professional codes of ethics are judged."

Police in Oakland, California, have used tear-gas and flash-grenades as a 2,000-strong Occupy Oakland march turned violent, with some protesters claiming that rubber bullets had been also fired into the crowd. At least 300 people were arrested, police say.

The demonstrators attempted to take over a vacant building to use as their headquarters. As they began tearing down perimeter fences around the HenryJ. KaiserConvention Center, police declared an unlawful assembly and used force, according to the Oakland Tribune newspaper.

Italy anti-austerity protests reach Sicily
Sat Jan 28, 2012 11:42PM GMT

From North to South, the number of Italians dissatisfied with the reforms and tax hikes introduced by the government led by Prime Minister Monti, keeps growing.


In Sicily, a series of strikes organized by protest movements has brought the island to its knees. 

The Shock Wave Group - composed of angry truck drivers - and the Sicilian haulage companies association blocked roads, motorways and the gates of the major ports in the past days. 

Their roadblocks and blockades have led to a lack of petrol at gas stations all over the island. On certain highways the price of fuel jumped to 3 Euros a liter and groceries became a scarce resource in shops and supermarkets.

Diseccionando a El Paes

26 enero 2012 � 13:25  

Los medios de comunicaci�n censuran lo que est� ocurriendo en Italia, otra vez a fin de evitar el contagio de las movilizaciones al resto de Europa.

Las movilizaciones ciudadanas en Sicilia comenzaron con eficaces bloqueos por parte de camioneros, pescadores, agricultores y ganaderos, y tuvieron su origen en el fuerte incremento en la isla de los precios de la gasolina (40% respecto al a�o anterior). Las protestas fueron enseguida respaldadas por trabajadores de otros sectores de la econom�a de Sicilia, quienes cuentan con el apoyo de miles de ciudadanos hastiados por las medidas �liberalizadoras� de austeridad impuestas por el gobierno tecnocr�tico del primer ministro italiano, Mario Monti, elegido desde la UE sin pasar por las urnas.

Bankers' best friend: Newt?  Obama?  Romney?

Wall Street: The Candidate's FriendMichael Winship, Truthout: "President Obama may talk a good populist game and even kick some corporate butt when he goes on the attack against Wall Street 'fat cats.' Yet he still enjoys the company of bankers ... and for all their grumbling about his policies, the investment community is coming up with significant cash for his re-election; the kind of change they believe in.... Among these ... are employees of big-name firms including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Barclays and Citigroup."Read the Article
Romney Collects More in Donations From the Five Biggest Banks Than All Other Candidates CombinedPat Garofalo, ThinkProgress: "Mitt Romney has been leading the way in the 2012 presidential race when it comes to donations from Wall Street, pulling in millions from the financial sector since he launched his campaign.... Romney has received more in donations from employees of the nation's five biggest banks than all of the other presidential candidates combined.... So far, the financial industry has made 69 percent of its donations in the presidential race to Republicans." Read the Article
 
Gingrich, Romney hit each other over involvement in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
A question from an audience member about the future of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at Thursday night's CNN debate turned into a slugfest between House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. The two Florida front-runners hit each other over investments and relationships to the mortgage giants taken over by the government at the height of the financial crisis in 2008.

"We should have had a whistle blower not a horn tooter," Romney said about the former House speaker, who worked as an adviser to Freddie Mac, the smaller of the two organizations.

OBAMA ELIGIBILITY COURT CASE -BLOW BY BLOW

By Craig Andresen on January 26, 2012 at 9:25 am



Given the testimony from today's court case in Georgia, Obama has a lot of explaining to do. His attorney, Jablonski, was a NO SHOW as of course, was Obama.

The following is a nutshell account of the proceedings.

Promptly at 9am  EST, all attorneys involved in the Obama Georgia eligibility case were called to the Judge's chambers. This was indeed a very interesting beginning to this long awaited and important case.

The case revolved around the Natural Born clause of the Constitution and whether or not Obama qualifies under it to serve. More to the point, if found ineligible, Obama's name would not appear on the 2012 ballot in Georgia.

With the small courtroom crowded, several in attendance could be seen fanning themselves with pamphlets as they waited for the return of the attorneys and the appearance of the judge.
Obama himself, who had been subpoenaed to appear, of course was nowhere near Georgia. Instead, Obama was on a campaign swing appearing in Las Vegas and in Colorado ignoring the court in Georgia.
Over the last several weeks, Obama’s attorney, Michael Jablonski, had attempted several tactics to keep this case from moving forward. He first tried to have it dismissed, then argued that it was irrelevant to Obama. After that, Jablonski argued that a state could not, under the law, determine who would or would not be on a ballot and later, that Obama was simply too busy with the duties of office to appear.
After all these arguments were dispatched by the Georgia Court, Jablonski, in desperation, wrote to the Georgia Secretary of State attempting to place Obama above the law and declared that the case was not to he heard and neither he nor his client would participate.

Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, fired back a letter hours later telling Jablonski he was free to abandon the case and not participate but that he would do so at his and his clients peril.

Game on.
5 minutes.
10 minutes.
15 minutes with the attorneys in the judge's chambers.
20 minutes.

It appears Jablonski is not in attendance as the attorneys return, all go to the plaintiff table 24 minutes after meeting in the judge's chambers.
Has Obama's attorney made good on his stated threat not to participate? Is he directly ignoring the court's subpoena? Is he placing Obama above the law? It seems so. Were you or I subpoenaed to appear in court, would we or our attorney be allowed such action or, non action?
Certainly not.

Court is called to order.
Obama's birth certificate is entered into evidence.
Obama's father's place of birth, Kenya East Africa is entered into evidence.
Pages 214 and 215 from Obama's book, 'Dreams from My Father' entered into evidence. Highlighted. This is where Obama indicates that, in 1966 or 1967 that his father's history is mentioned. It states that his father’s passport had been revoked and he was unable to leave Kenya.
Immigration Services documents entered into evidence regarding Obama Sr.
June 27th, 1962, is the date on those documents. Obama’s father’s status shown as a non citizen of the United States. Documents were gotten through the Freedom of Information Act.
Testimony regarding the definition of Natural Born Citizen is given citing Minor vs Happersett opinion from a Supreme Court written opinion from 1875. The attorney points out the difference between “citizen” and “Natural Born Citizen” using charts and copies of the Minor vs Happersett opinion.
It is also pointed out that the 14th Amendment does not alter the definition or supersede the meaning of Natural Born. It is pointed out that lower court rulings do not conflict with the Supreme Court opinion nor do they over rule the Supreme Court Minor vs Happersett opinion.
The point is, to be a natural born citizen, one must have 2 parents who, at the time of the birth in question, be citizens of the United States. As Obama’s father was not a citizen, the argument is that Obama, constitutionally, is ineligible to serve as President.

Judge notes that as Obama nor his attorney is present, action will be taken accordingly.

Carl Swinson takes the stand.
Testimony is presented that the SOS has agreed to hear this case, laws applicable, and that the DNC of Georgia will be on the ballot and the challenge to it by Swinson.

2nd witness, a Mr. Powell, takes the stand
Presents testimony regarding documents of challenge to Obama’s appearance on the Georgia ballot and his candidacy.
Court records of Obama’s mother and father entered into evidence.
Official certificate of nomination of Obama entered into evidence.
RNC certificate of nomination entered into evidence.
DNC language does NOT include language stating Obama is Qualified while the RNC document DOES. This shows a direct difference trying to establish that the DNC MAY possibly have known that Obama was not qualified.
Jablonski letter to Kemp yesterday entered into evidence showing their desire that these proceedings not take place and that they would not participate.
Dreams From My Father entered.

Mr. Allen from Tuscon AZ sworn in.
Disc received from Immigration and Naturalization Service entered into evidence. This disc contains information regarding the status of Obama’s father received through the Freedom of Information Act.
This information states clearly that Obama's father was NEVER a U.S. Citizen.

At this point, the judge takes a recess.

The judge returns.

David Farrar takes the stand.
Evidence showing Obama's book of records listing his nationality as Indoneasan. Deemed not relevant by the judge.

Orly Taitz calls 2nd witness. Mr. Strump.
Enters into evidence a portion of letter received from attorney showing a renewal form from Obama's mother for her passport listing Obama's last name something other than Obama.


State Licensed PI takes the stand.She was hired to look into Obama's background and found a Social Security number for him from 1977. Professional opinion given that this number was fraudulent. The number used or attached to Obama in 1977, shows that Obama was born in the 1890. This shows that the number was originally assigned to someone else who was indeed born in 1890 and should never have been used by Obama.
Same SS number came up with addresses in IL, D.C. and MA.

Next witness takes the stand.
This witness is an expert in information technology and photo shop. He testifies that the birth certificate Obama provided to the public is layered, multiple layered. This, he testifies, indicates that different parts of the certificate have been lifted from more than one original document.

Linda Jordan takes the stand.
Document entered regarding SS number assigned to Obama. SS number is not verified under E Verify. It comes back as suspected fraudulent. This is the system by which the Government verifies ones citizenship.

Next witness - Mr. Gogt.
Expert in document imaging and scanners for 18 years.
Mr. Gogt testifies that the birth certificate, posted online by Obama, is suspicious. States white lines around all the type face is caused by “unsharp mask” in Photoshop. Testifies that any document showing this, is considered to be a fraud.
States this is a product of layering.
Mr. Gogt testifies that a straight scan of an original document would not show such layering.
Also testifies that the date stamps shown on Obama documents should not be in exact same place on various documents as they are hand stamped. Obama’s documents are all even, straight and exactly the same indicating they were NOT hand stamped by layered into the document by computer.

Next witness, Mr. Sampson 
A former police officer and former immigration officer specializing in immigration fraud.
Ran Obama's SS number through database and found that the number was issued to Obama in 1977 in the state of Connecticut . Obama never resided in that state. At the time of issue, Obama was living in Hawaii.
Serial number on birth certificate is out of sequence with others issued at that hospital. Also certification is different than others and different than twins born 24 hours ahead of Obama.
Mr. Sampson also states that portion of documents regarding Mr. Sotoroe, who adopted Obama have been redacted which is highly unusual with regards to immigration records.
Suggests all records from Social Security, Immigration, Hawaii birth records be made available to see if there are criminal charges to be filed or not. Without them, nothing can be ruled out.
Mr. Sampson indicates if Obama is shown not to be a citizen, he should be arrested and deported and until all records are released nobody can know for sure if he is or is not a U.S. Citizen.

Taitz shows records for Barry Sotoro aka Barack Obama, showing he resides in Hawaii and in Indonesia at the same time.

Taitz takes the stand herself.
Testifies that records indicate Obama records have been altered and he is hiding his identity and citizenship.

Taitz leave the stand to make her closing arguments.
Taitz states that Obama should be found, because of the evidence presented, ineligible to serve as President.

And with that, the judge closes the hearing.
