QUESTION: My daughter in school discussed your case as a denial of due process of law. Your case is really famous in legal circles.
ANSWER: I get that many times. Even my cousin’s son in South Carolina experienced the same thing. When he told the teacher I was his cousin, she couldn’t believe it. To make this as simple as possible, let’s say they arrest you for raping a girl. They fill the headlines that you are guilty. Then it turns out it was someone else who worked in a bank. They then refuse to release you until they then ask every woman in the country if she was ever raped by you. This is precisely what Alan Cohen of Goldman Sachs told the court that I should never be released even tough there was NO DESCRIPTION of any crime.
So yes. Goldman Sachs was intimately involved to prevent my release and advocated
holding me until I died even though there was no crime, no description of a crime, no trial, not entitlement to lawyers, or anything that was supposed to be American. What took place in the IRS Scandal is standard operating procedure to shut people up when someone does not like what they say. They just pretend you violate some law like arresting Coxley for walking on the Grass when he led people to protest in Washington the economic decline after the Panic of 1893 – Coxley’s Army.
Under Due Process of Law you are supposed to be advised what you are being accused of and you then enter your plea guilty or not guilty. I was NEVER advised of any such crime and this is what Alan Cohen of Goldman Sachs stood before the New York court loaded with the “free” press who NEVER would report a single word of truth if it ever went against Goldman Sachs, the government, or the court – especially Bloomberg when Goldman Sachs is a client. Welcome to America – the land of countless conflicts of interest and millions of laws that can be used to shut people up pretending they are enforcing that law to achieve your silence. Wiki Leaks they want to imprison for life to leaking the truth about THEIR illegal activity. So it has become a crime to expose government. The Associated Press scandal is going after journalists to discover who they are talking to so they can imprison them for life for telling the truth. What Alan Cohen did that day has shown the world what New York is all about – corruption rotten to the core. They could not find anything to charge me with so they just held me without any charges whatsoever – Civil Contempt – the prerogative of kings, and ministers.
Because they could not even describe a crime I might have done, Alan Cohen dispensed with the problem of even charging someone and providing notice to defend. His solution, just imprison me until I died knowing the NY Press will NEVER go against the NY boys. So much for liberty and justice for all and the land of the free except when you expose the New York Bankers and their destruction of the free markets and world economy. It is always about shutting people up to protect their illegal activities.
Alan Cohen even admitted HSBC pleaded guilty criminally, nobody went to jail, and they just gave back money they tried to pocket by blaming me. The bankers got away with precisely that in M.F. Global. The losses with illegal trading at the banks was covered by depositors at M.F. Global. That is precisely against the law. But law is like life. The only true facts remain you are born and you die. Everything in between is subject to their interpretation. They cannot see that the world they are creating is the destruction of everything that made civilization work. With no Rule of Law and in a land where only government wins, nothing have any real meaning or value. Your home is not your home for your possession of it is subject to the interpretation of a judge,
This is why I have been getting a lot of people writing how their children are beginning taught about my case in school. Those who are not afraid to say the truth do. Even the movie they are doing that will be out by the end of the year offered Alan Cohen, the government and Tancred Schiavoni of O’Melveny & Myers to speak and explain their actions. Everyone refused to say anything. They can slander me online through their shills and cronies, but put your face in a forum that is independent and in the light of day – forget it.
Bloomberg News knew intimately what took place. Mark Pittman was one of the few REAL investigative reporters. He investigated our business in Japan before anything happened and knew we bought the distressed portfolios, and never managed money for the Japanese. The Japanese were bleeding out of their eye sockets. If you had the best track record in the world by a factor of 10 it did not matter. They had no cash to invest. They had tons of assets that were worth 40-60% less than what they paid. When this case began, Mark knew the allegations were false. He knew the notes were issued to buy portfolios. Mark said to me – “Don’t worry Marty. We will not them them to this to you.” Mark knew I had been collecting data on all the manipulations, not to be used per se in a criminal case, just to be able to advise clients what markets to be careful about. How can I advise client a market is breaking out, they buy the high, it collapses and I make up the excuse it was manipulated by the bankers. Major institutions expected me to know what was going on. That was part of the job.
It came out early on that Alan Cohen somehow found out I had given audio tapes covering everyone I had spoke to about the manipulations on an ongoing basis. That would have been enough to shut down the New York manipulations. Phone calls with numerous dealing desks as we monitored their latest scams. It was not my intent to run to the authorities and say here is the evidence to shut down the bankers. The results of the LIBOR scandal demonstrate there will never be prosecutions, only civil fines. So there was no intent on my part to get involved in such a system. My job was to protect clients. That is why even advising on countless takeovers, not a single instance of inside trading could be found.
Nonetheless, that became Cohen’s target threatening to imprison my lawyers if they refused to turn over that evidence. The Department of Justice obviously consented to the action and never made one step to defend the free markets. The trick to discredit such evidence is to always attack the messenger. That they did to distract everyone from the core issue – market manipulation by the NY Investment Banks on Wall Street that has continued to go on and blew up the entire world resulting in higher taxes and the loss of all our liberty all because of these people.
Bloomberg News removed Mark from covering my case. In doing so, Bloomberg protected the banks and made sure the very evidence that would have exposed the truth about the banks.Bloomberg removed Mark who had gone after the Fed. Mark was a dying breed of REAL investigative journalists – very few and far between. That is why we respected each other. He knew I was out of the NY crowd and respected that view and why. Bloomberg replaced Mark appointing David Glovin who would NEVER even once print what my response was to anything. Glovin only printed the government allegations – so much for Bloomberg News reporting the truth – provided it did not offend Bloomberg himself, clients, and the government. What can you expect when Bloomberg himself was a top guy at Salomon Brothers who got caught manipulating the US Treasury Auctions.
Yet the press refuses to link the dots. They treat every manipulation as isolated and move on. They started with the first manipulation by Salomon Brothers of the US Treasury Auctions. They overlooked the seizure of the US Treasury position by Robert Rubin of Goldman Sachs and the repeal of Glass Seagall that made the current crisis possible unchaining the banks and letting them run wild. Countless commodities have been manipulated and then there is the current LIBOR manipulation just like the original Salomon Brothers scandal. They pay their fines, which are always a tiny fraction of what they make, and move on to the next. The press NEVER says – hey! Are these fines just pay-offs?
So the New York Press will NEVER report the truth about the courts, the banks, or what Alan Cohen did no less the fact that all the evidence we gathered that would have put all the bankers in prison for life, magically disappeared in the collapse of the SEC Building that amazingly was not even hit by an plane in the 911 attack.
