Jobless claims fall to 49-year low

The fewest numbers of Americans filed applications for unemployment benefits in more than 49 years, reflecting the continued strength of the labor market.

Jobless claims fell 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 199,000 for the week ended Jan. 19, the lowest level for initial claims since Nov. 15, 1969 when it was 197,000, the Labor Department said.

Judge orders NXIVM defendants – except Bronfman – to appear Monday to discuss Bronfman trust that pays their attorneys

oday, an order by Judge Nicholas Garaufis was entered into the docket in the case of the US v. Keith Raniere, Allison Mack, Nancy Salzman, Lauren Salzman, Kathy Russell and Clare Bronfman.

The judge’s order reads:

“The parties are DIRECTED to appear for a status conference before the undersigned on January 28, 2019, at 11:00 A.M. in Courtroom 4D South to discuss issues concerning the irrevocable trust (the “Trust”) that is paying the legal fees of all Defendants (except Clare Bronfman) and certain witnesses.

“All Defendants are required to attend. In particular, the court plans to address issues it has identified in its review of the Trust’s indenture and the declaration that Defendants submitted in response to the court’s 266 January 9, 2019 order. The court will schedule the anticipated Curcio hearings at a later date. Ordered by Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis on 1/23/2019. (Haddad, Andrew) (Entered: 01/23/2019)”.

So it begins.

Judge Garaufis has reviewed the trust, and is pulling back the covers on who is putting money into the trust; how much money is left in the trust – and whether that is sufficient to pay for the attorneys for Raniere, the Salzmans, Mack and Russell through the trial; who is benefited by the trust; and, most importantly, what conflicts arise or might arise out of a trust where one of six defendants – Clare Bronfman – is funding [partially or fully] through a trust – the defense of her five co-defendants.

The status conference will likely set the schedule for how to go forward, define the issues, and devise a road map of how get to the bottom of all these thorny issues.

Other than Bronfman, it is unlikely that any of the other defendants in the case have enough money to pay for their own attorneys. Thus, they are totally dependent on Clare and whoever else is funding the trust.

And trusts, like almost everything else, abide by the golden rule: She who has the gold, rules.

Is the trust serving to fund attorneys who have each client’s best interest at heart? Or is there a subtle, implied and unspoken “master plan” to save Bronfman and Raniere first and foremost? And let the others take the fall.

Or if not take the fall, to fight to the end in unison when the best interest of some is not to be in unison with Raniere and Bronfman.

Kathy Russell’s attorneys are now claiming she was set up by the prosecution, falsely induced to go before the grand jury as a witness, and then subsequently indicted.

Southern Poverty Law Center Slapped with Racketeering Suit Over False Hate Group Designation

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has filed a lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), claiming that SPLC operators Richard Cohen and Heidi Beirich have violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) by “falsely designating CIS as a hate group.”

CIS describes itself as “an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization” that “pursue[s[ a single mission – providing immigration policymakers, the academic community, news media, and concerned citizens with reliable information about the social, economic, environmental, security, and fiscal consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States.”

The fact that Perkins Coie had their name on an account that was seized should be a big red flag a lot of people. It basically says that the Backpage case is over or Perkins Coie had foreknowledge or was involved.

https://openscholarship.wustl.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2033&context=law_lawreview

Does the client’s sixth amendment right to counsel protect fruits and instrumentalities of crime possessed by the lawyer? No. A lawyer’s refusal to accept robbery proceeds as a legal fee will not implicate a suspect’s sixth amendment rights, even if the suspect otherwise cannot retain private counsel. The sixth amendment grants the accused an absolute right to have counsel assist in his defense and a qualified right to counsel of his choice. The accused is entitled to employ counsel of choice if he can afford it, or to be represented by appointed counsel if he cannot.”

https://www.justice.gov/jm/jm-9-120000-attorney-fee-forfeiture-guidelines

“9-120.104 – Forfeiture of Assets Transferred to an Attorney for Representation in a Criminal Matter

Forfeiture of an asset transferred to an attorney as payment for legal fees for representation in a criminal matter may be pursued, notwithstanding the fact that the asset may have been transferred for legitimate services actually rendered, where there are reasonable grounds to believe that the attorney had actual knowledge that the asset was subject to forfeiture at the time of the transfer. However, such reasonable grounds must be based on facts and information other than compelled disclosures of confidential communications made during the course of the representation.

9-120.107 – Actual Knowledge of Forfeitability

For purposes of these guidelines, actual knowledge refers not simply to knowledge that some of a client’s assets are either subject to forfeiture or from criminal misconduct. Rather, an attorney must have actual knowledge that the particular asset he/she received was subject to forfeiture. The guidelines require that there be reasonable grounds to believe that actual knowledge exists.

Reasonable grounds exist for believing that an attorney has actual knowledge that an asset is subject to forfeiture when there is evidence that it was known to the attorney at the time of the transfer either: (a) that the government had asserted that the particular asset is subject to forfeiture or (b) that the particular asset in fact is from criminal misconduct.”

Anything paid in advance is a retainer and goes into a trust account that is protected. The lawyer then bills against the trust in a very meticulous way that is completely documented. If the Backpage case ins’t concluded and Perkins Coie can show they didn’t have foreknowledge of criminal wrongdoing and the client had the means to pay the retainer it should be protected until the verdict is rendered and on through appeals.

So, Backpage only has to give up it’s assets that have been given to a lawyer if they have no other way of showing their income. If the lawyer can say they had no reason to believe their clients were involved in criminal activity than the retainer fee is protected by the 6th amendment right to counsel. Backpage can say they made plenty of money via advertisement and fees. The fact that this money was seized says in my opinion that Perkins Coie may be in the process of being co-indicted with backpage as co-conspritators in an ongoing criminal enterprise.

The United States lost its sovereignty before any of us were born. We grew up in a totalitarian fascist country where public school indoctrination and income tax were mandatory. How does an American revolt against his European slave owners in 2018?

With the pen, not with the gun.

THIS is the god damn “plan” we are meant to trust. In case you didn’t notice, it’s been happening for a while.
The US government is shut down.

They can’t pay “foreign aid” to their crime organizations anywhere on the planet
They can’t interfere with the daily lives of American citizens
They can’t run semi-legitimate policing and propaganda operations against American citizens using our own money
They can’t enslave us with any more debt by borrowing from china or the federal reserve
Their lawyers are forced to defend a bump stock ban without being paid
Their TSA agents which molest Americans but have never protected an American are quitting and getting private sector jobs
IRS employees are refusing to work during tax season
The senate has them by the balls and is voting against proposals before Trump even has to veto them

Their ranks have been infiltrated by useful idiots

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez makes their socialist agenda look retarded
Ilhan Omar makes them look like the political party of Islam
Their members in the house are voting against Pelosi
Their party is imploding

The US military is on the southern border building a wall

Their illegal funding operations in the US from selling drugs and people is absolutely disrupted
Their low-level criminal employees for extortion and jobs in the US have all been arrested since Trump just spend 2 years rounding up MS-13
They can’t replenish their headcount because everyone is paying attention to the border
Their attempts to do so have been exposing their entire operation in Mexico and turning the Mexican people against the cartel’s anti-america activities

Their world-wide tax evasion and money laundering networks are under siege with Brexit

Just about every cabal owned company on earth avoids taxes and accountability by using tax loopholes between the EU and the UK
Any hope of a soft Brexit that maintains the loophole has just died
A hard Brexit cuts the cabal off from all of their sheltered “dark” money

Their control of worldwide currency values has died with the loss of the petro-dollar

The Dollar is the world’s reserve currency because until recently every country on earth that wanted to buy oil was forced to trade using dollars. That means the value of the Dollar was controlled by OPEC and the Saudi royal family. With China, Saudi family, and the Fed working together they could print unlimited dollars and still control the dollar’s value. Trump has built a network of worldwide control including US and Norwegian oil production, change of Saudi royal family succession, collapse of Iran and Venezuela, calling out NATO for buying Russian oil, and waging a massive trade war against China to put money directly in the treasury with tariffs completely bypassing the Fed.
Their ability to threaten nations with nuclear annihilation have been completely dismantled

Iran’s secret facilities in Norther Syria were likely blown up
North Korea was ripped from their control so they don’t have a place to launch from anymore
Trump has been hunting submarines for 2 years
We have been shooting down ICBMs using classified technology
The army is installing anti-missile and anti-ICBM technology all over the globe
We announced classified tech to stop space launches in the boost phase and our intent to use it

They are fighting as many as 80,000 legal battles in the US courts

We have seen the sealed indictments in the courts
We know the clinton foundation was raided by the FBI and the ATF
We’ve seen prominant pedophiles indicate that they are spilling the beans to cut a deal
George W Bush, Kevin Spacey, Weisman, etc

Trump has a declassification gun pointed at their head at all times

FISA brings down the house of representatives
9-11 can bring down the CIA
For all we know the previous admin is already undergoing secret military tribunals
They executed McCain, what happened to the two bushes?

They lost the senate, they are losing the courts

9th circuit burned
50+ court appointments happening every few weeks
Kavanaugh
RBG dead?

They can’t ever rig another election

California taking millions off voter roles in one county alone
Florida officials being fired and investigated
Election fraud lawsuits popping up all over the country

Militant groups are flooding every country they could have considered a safe haven

Yellow vests in France
Trump-like candidates in Italy, poland, etc
Riots and revolution in iran
Revolution in Venezuela

Their human trafficking in syria just had the floor drop out from under it

US military withdraws suddenly, that means no more military insiders helping them in secret, that means no more protectection for organizations like the red cross that means absolute chaos on the ground in a region where most of the people are armed and angry and want to expose the corrupt globalists and the countries like Turkey and Israel and France are forced to send in troops to fill the power vacuum made by US departure while having extreme political troubles at home. Is the same happening now in South America?
Chinese billionaires are being extradited by the US government

They can’t even run a cellphone company at this point without being arrested by Americans.
We are the media now

People around the world who want to know what’s really happening are going to 8chan instead of turning on the TV
