American Justice Watchmen and Action Group

Watchmen group to affect change in the American Justice system. Researchers and strategist needed!

Location: USA
Members: 117
Latest Activity: Jan 30

Welcome....Group Coordinator: Herve Eril Amptil

Some of the issues we will focus on:

• The death penalty, therefore a reform of the death penalty to apply it more, quicker through a total reform, an extension of the capital crime list, reform especially f the appeal process which I believe is just way out of this world).

• The complete removal of sexual offenders from our civil society. (It is unacceptable to read the long list of kidnapped, raped and murdered children and not be enraged; this got to stop). We want a complete reform of the dealings with sexual offenders because prevention does not work with these criminals who act on impulse, therefore alternatives must be applied

• Reforms are needed to allow our police officers and all Law Enforcement Officers to do their duty without fear of Government which often responds to a political agenda, we see it right now with Navy Seals being indicted by the Obama Administration for arresting terrorists. Our security agencies, from national agencies to local ones must be able to do their job. It is unacceptable that a criminal shot by an officer during the course of a robbery be allowed to sue the police officer and be able to get a financial settlement with the police department, it is an aberration.

• Reforms establishing the role of judges who are in the position to apply the rule of law not use their position to legislate.

• Reform of prisons, We find it unacceptable that prisoners live in better conditions than so many hard working Americans who cannot afford health care. Prisoners have State paid health care, can study and obtain degrees while in jail at tax payers’ expense; in the meantime honest kids are not even eligible for loans to study. Enough is enough; We think politicians must get back to reality.

The supreme court will now render it's decision on the constitution on whether it's a piece of paper of the Law of the Land. The decision will happen before the end of the year.

William M. Windsor filed Writs of Mandamus over his court case which he considers corrupt.

This actually is needed, to see just where the appointed judges stand, and they will finally be forced to make a decision which will either PO millions, or understand that they need to stop the practice of Guilty before being proved innocent.

Everyone should be aware of a group called Infragard, they were formed right after the Oklahoma City bombing by the FBI. This group uses civilians to snoop on each other under the guise of protecting the Infrastructure. I has been rumored the civilian members are authorized lethal force when required. The civilians are looking, recording and reporting on anyone who acts weird, has guns, offensive decals against the government or President. So I guess most of us are on somebody's watch list and probably more than once.
You can check them out at Infragard.com.

Obama appointed Timothy Geither to a high level position in our treasury. Since he owed back taxes which he paid only after the appointment and has cocealed other information harmful to our country, why has he not been prosecuted?Skip to navigation » Skip to content »

Hugh Son Hugh Son – Thu Jan 7, 6:00 am ET
Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, then led by Timothy Geithner, told American International Group Inc. to withhold details from the public about the bailed-out insurer’s payments to banks during the depths of the financial crisis, e-mails between the company and its regulator show.

AIG said in a draft of a regulatory filing that the insurer paid banks, which included Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Societe Generale SA, 100 cents on the dollar for credit-default swaps they bought from the firm. The New York Fed crossed out the reference, according to the e-mails, and AIG excluded the language when the filing was made public on Dec. 24, 2008. The e-mails were obtained by Representative Darrell Issa, ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The New York Fed took over negotiations between AIG and the banks in November 2008 as losses on the swaps, which were contracts tied to subprime home loans, threatened to swamp the insurer weeks after its taxpayer-funded rescue. The regulator decided that Goldman Sachs and more than a dozen banks would be fully repaid for $62.1 billion of the swaps, prompting lawmakers to call the AIG rescue a “backdoor bailout” of financial firms.

“It appears that the New York Fed deliberately pressured AIG to restrict and delay the disclosure of important information,” said Issa, a California Republican. Taxpayers “deserve full and complete disclosure under our nation’s securities laws, not the withholding of politically inconvenient information.” President Barack Obama selected Geithner as Treasury secretary, a post he took last year.

Bank Payments

Issa requested the e-mails from AIG Chief Executive Officer Robert Benmosche in October after Bloomberg News reported that the New York Fed ordered the crippled insurer not to negotiate for discounts in settling the swaps. The decision to pay the banks in full may have cost AIG, and thus taxpayers, at least $13 billion, based on the discount the insurer was seeking.

The e-mail exchanges between AIG and the New York Fed over the insurer’s disclosure of the transactions show that the regulator pressed the company to keep details out of the public eye. Issa’s comments add to criticism from Republican lawmakers, including Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Representative Roy Blunt of Missouri, who wrote letters in the past two months demanding information from Geithner, 48, about the costs of the AIG bailout.

Securities Lawyers

AIG’s Dec. 24, 2008, filing was challenged privately by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which polices the adequacy of disclosures by publicly traded firms. The agency said in a letter to then-CEO Edward Liddy six days later that AIG should provide a Schedule A, which lists collateral postings for the swaps and names the bank counterparties that purchased them from the company. The Schedule A was disclosed about five months later in a filing.

“Our position has always been that if AIG’s securities lawyers determine that AIG is legally obligated to make a particular filing or disclosure, then that is what AIG must do,” said Jack Gutt, a spokesman for the New York Fed, in an e- mailed statement. Gutt said it was appropriate for the New York Fed, as party to deals outlined in the filings, “to provide comments on a number of issues, including disclosures, with the understanding that the final decision rested with AIG’s securities counsel.”

Mark Herr, a spokesman for New York-based AIG, declined to comment. Andrew Williams of the Treasury referred questions to the New York Fed.

Kathleen Shannon, an AIG deputy general counsel, wrote to the insurer’s executives in a March 12, 2009, e-mail about the conflicting demands from the New York Fed and SEC.

‘Reasonable Basis’

“In order to make only the disclosure that the Fed wants us to make,” Shannon wrote, “we need to have a reasonable basis for believing and arguing to the SEC that the information we are seeking to protect is not already publicly available.”

AIG disclosed the names of the counterparties, which included Deutsche Bank AG and Merrill Lynch & Co., on March 15. The disclosure said AIG made more than $27 billion in payments without identifying the securities tied to the swaps or listing the value of individual purchases by each bank, details the Fed wanted to keep out, according to the March 12 e-mail from AIG’s Shannon.

Earlier that month, Fed Vice Chairman Donald Kohn testified to Congress that disclosure of the counterparties would harm AIG’s ability to do business. The insurer agreed to turn over a stake of almost 80 percent in connection to its bailout.

‘No Mention of the Synthetics’

The e-mails span five months starting in November 2008 and include requests from the New York Fed to withhold documents and delay disclosures. The correspondence includes e-mails between AIG’s Shannon and attorneys at the New York Fed and its law firm, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP. Tom Orewyler, a spokesman for Davis Polk in New York, declined to comment as did Shannon.

According to Shannon’s e-mails obtained by Issa, the New York Fed suggested that AIG refrain in a filing from mentioning so-called synthetic collateralized debt obligations, which bundled derivative contracts rather than actual loans.

The filing “reflects your client’s desire that there be no mention of the synthetics in connection with this transaction,” Shannon wrote to Davis Polk on Dec. 2, 2008. “They will not be mentioned at all.”

AIG had about $9.8 billion of swaps protecting the synthetic holdings as of September 2008, the company said on Dec. 10, 2008. Goldman Sachs said in a press release last month that it was among banks that had losses on synthetic CDOs.

As part of a bailout that swelled to $182.3 billion, AIG and the Fed created Maiden Lane III, a taxpayer-funded facility designed to remove mortgage-linked swaps from the insurer’s books. Shannon told the New York Fed on Nov. 24, 2008, that AIG executives wanted to publicly disclose details about Maiden Lane the next day.

‘Guided by Your Counsel’

“Do you think it might be feasible to hold off on the Maiden Lane III 8K and press release until next week?” Brett Phillips, a New York Fed lawyer wrote in an e-mail that day. “The thinking is that the Maiden Lane III closing will be a less transparent event, and it might be better to narrow the gap between AIG’s announcement and the New York Fed’s publication of term sheet summaries.”

“Given the significance of the transaction, AIG would be best served by filing tomorrow,” Shannon wrote. “We will of course be guided by your counsel.” The document outlining the Maiden Lane agreement was posted on Dec. 2, 2008.

In at least one instance, AIG pushed for documents to be disclosed and then released the information.

‘Better Disclosure’

“We believe that the agreements listed in the index (i.e., the Master Investment and Credit Agreement and the Shortfall Agreement) do not need to be filed,” Peter Bazos, a Davis Polk lawyer wrote on Nov. 25, 2008. “Please let us know your thoughts in this regard.”

AIG’s Shannon replied that “the better practice and better disclosure in this complex area is to file the agreements currently rather than to delay.” The agreements were included in the Dec. 2 filing.

More details of the negotiations over swaps payments emerged in November 2009 when Neil Barofsky, the special inspector in charge of policing the Troubled Asset Relief Program, assessed the Fed’s role in the bailout.

“Federal Reserve officials provided AIG’s counterparties with tens of billions of dollars they likely would have not otherwise received,” Barofsky wrote in a Nov. 17 report. “The default position, whenever government funds are deployed in a crisis to support markets or institutions, should be that the public is entitled to know what is being done with government funds.”

AIG’s first rescue was an $85 billion credit line from the New York Fed in September 2008. The bailout was expanded three times and is valued at $182.3 billion. That includes a $60 billion Fed credit line, an investment of as much as $69.8 billion from the Treasury and up to $52.5 billion for Maiden Lane facilities to buy mortgage-linked assets owned or backed by the company.

I realize this may not belong here, but I have to relate an AMAZING thing that occurred last night...it was the most amazing experience...

My friend, Sandra, and I went to the Foxwoods Casino's Christmas Gala (called "Holiday Gala" of course...). Everyone was dressed up for the very formal Gala. The meal was terrific, but the entertainment was a bit "weird." Out came 3 Italian men, singing many of the old Italian songs. Not a single Christmas Carol to be had the entire time, which confused us greatly...and then the end of their show came...

The second to last song was America the Beautiful! As soon as they started singing, Sandra and I looked at each other and in that room of 2,000 people, we stood up and started to sing along. Across the room a man and woman also stood, smiling at us and singing. Behind us an entire table rose and started singing. In under a minute, almost ALL of the 2,000-person crowd were on their feet singing with hands held over their hearts, and some even crying! When the part of the song came that says, "God shed his grace on thee," people's voice rose to an almost ear-shattering volume! Pride came out in their voices in waves! Everyone was smiling and looking around the room, unable to believe our numbers. The song ended, but no one sat down. We were waiting for more...

The last song was "Give me your tired, your poor..." and again those who knew the tune and the words still sang on. The Chinese guy on my right patted me on the shoulder, smiling at me.

We are not alone--there are more of us than "they" realize. Very few in that room stayed seated--VERY FEW. We can do this. We can oust the Obama Administration a vote at a time.

And so the elegant evening ended...with gamblers entering for dining, and patriots departing. God bless America. All is calm...all is bright!
