$43 trillion lawsuit and NYC nanny murders linked

On April 17, a complaint was drafted by the Spire Law Group, LLP against large Wall Street banks, mortgage brokers and government officials. The first time the lawsuit was publicized by a national media outlet was last week. The day after it was published, two children in Manhattan’s upper west side were allegedly murdered by their nanny, who then allegedly slit her own throat and wrists.

There may be a coincidental link between the lawsuit and the horrific murders…or there may be a lot more to it than that. Regardless of whether it is coincidence or something more sinister, there is a connection between the lawsuit and the murders.

The complaint was filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, county of Kings on August 24. It seeks the return of $43 trillion to the US treasury relating to the mortgage crash, Ponzi schemes and TARP bailout that resulted from it, as well as restitution for the plaintiffs.

The lawsuit had not been publicized in the national media until the day before the murders, when CNBC ran a piece about it on their web site. The children murdered, Lucia Krim, six, and her two-year-old brother, Leo, were two of the three children of Kevin and Marina Krim. Kevin Krim, astonishingly, is senior vice president and general manager of CNBC Digital, who would have had to have been involved in any decision regarding the publishing of a story about a lawsuit of this magnitude on CNBC’s web site.

Within hours of the murders, the story about the lawsuit was removed from CNBC’s web site. It currently can be found on The Wall Street Journal Market Watch web page. A screenshot of the CNBC piece was taken by a blogger named Sherrie and posted on her site, Sherrie Questioning All. The CNBC link to the article now brings up a blank page.

The Lawsuit

There are 838 plaintiffs in this case and 1808 defendants. Some of the huge banks named as defendants are:

  • Bear Sterns (acquired by JPMorgan Chase)
  • JPMorgan Chase
  • Wachovia
  • Citigroup
  • Wells Fargo
  • Bank of America
  • HSBC
  • Deutsche Bank
  • US Bancorp
  • PNC Bank
  • Ally Financial
  • One West
  • Countrywide Financial

Some of the government officials named as defendants are:

  • Attorney General Eric Holder
  • Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner
  • Former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine
  • California Attorney General Kamala Harris
  • Former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin

The claims presented in the complaint are consistent with common knowledge of the events leading up to the financial crash of 2008. There was a “a systemic fraud on thousands of investors” concerning the mortgage-backed securities first packaged and sold by Bear Stearns, later acquired by JPMorgan Chase as part of the US governmental bailout of the banks after the 2008 crash. These securities, a combination of home mortgages, credit card debt and student loans, were bundled together and sold on the global markets after given a fake AAA rating with intent by the seller to defraud and deceive investors.

Many offshore banks are named in the complaint in conjunction with the “too big to fail” banks. The complaint alleges that transferring the monies to offshore accounts was the means by which the big banks hid what was acquired by the mortgage-backed securities scam until the loans were securitized, then actual money and property could be seized from individuals. In other words, the $787 billion of taxpayer money issued through the TARP bailout and trillions of dollars of property owner’s money was allegedly stolen through racketeering and money laundering.

According to the complaint, this was “the largest [Ponzi] scheme in US history where domestic banking institutions – on an international basis” conspired together with the common purpose of engaging in a “worldwide scheme to steal, rob and convert the personal property, money and proceeds of such assets of each Plaintiff herein” with the obvious purpose of a conspiratorial “decade-long systematic conversion…that damaged millions of borrowers across the US.”

The defendants involved in the Ponzi scheme allegedly committed criminal violations of the PATRIOT Act, the policy of embargo against Iran and other foreign nations hostile toward the United States, as well as the Racketeering Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act. There are additional federal and state laws that were also allegedly violated.

The lawsuit seeks to freeze all foreclosures until $43 trillion is returned to the US treasury. Audits of the Federal Reserve and bailout program by independent investigators will be sought.

Whether or not this lawsuit has merit, it is obvious that many organizations and powerful individuals, globally and domestically, are facing a lot of public scrutiny if this case becomes highly publicized. Thus far only two national media outlets have covered this story, exclusively on the web, and one of them has already pulled it down, so it remains unknown to most of the general public.

The Murders

Yoselyn Ortega, 50, the nanny for the Krim family, allegedly plunged a kitchen knife into two of their children then attempted to take her own life by slitting her wrists and slashing her own throat. Several anomalies can be found when sifting through the news reports.

Firstly, suicide by cutting or piercing is extremely rare, generally occurring in less than two percent of all suicides and it rarely ever involves a woman. Slitting one’s own throat is even more statistically infrequent. Ortega allegedly did both. CBS news reported that she also suffered broken vertebrae.

Secondly, there are conflicting media reports about the horrific events of that evening. Some media outlets reported that Ortega slashed her wrists and throat after Marina arrived at the horrible scene. Others say Ortega was found on the floor bleeding after Mrs. Krim turned on the lights in a darkened apartment.

Thirdly, several reports have cited friends and family of both Ortega and the Krim’s who expressed shock at the murders because the Krim’s treated Ortega “like family” and that “she loved those kids.” So much so that the Krim family reportedly visited Ortega’s family in the Dominican Republic, even paying for her air fare.

Fourthly, Ortega had no criminal record and although family members said she had spoken about seeing a therapist, toxicology reports performed on her came back negative. A search warrant executed on the nanny’s apartment turned up no clues of a motive in the slayings of the Krim children and any possible motive has yet to be established.

Fifthly, Ortega has not yet been formally charged and had for days been unable to speak after her throat injuries and then being put into a medically-induced coma. Recently, according to the NY Daily News, she has spoken, inquiring about family members but has not yet spoken to police investigators. She may be arraigned at her hospital bed.

Lastly, and perhaps most significantly, there have been conflicting reports about statements from neighbors present in the building on that horrific evening. The New York Times initially reported that a neighbor said the superintendent of the building, who had arrived on the scene, was yelling: “You slit her throat! You slit her throat!” That has since been redacted from the original article, although the NY Daily News also reports that a neighbor heard the super screaming, “The kids are dead! The kids are dead! And the nanny has something sticking out of her throat!”

In fact, the only reports indicating that Ortega may have been predisposed to commit such an unspeakable crime are friends and family that said she has financial problems, had appeared to have lost weight and aged quickly, and had spoken of seeking professional help. At this point, it appears that this case will hinge on forensic evidence.

So, to sum up, based on conflicting media reports, there are several anomalies and contradictions. No evidence has been released to the public that shows that Ortega murdered the Krim children and slit her own wrists and throat. In fact, sifting through all of the media reports only makes this case more confusing.

This raises some questions. If the superintendent indeed said, “You slit her throat!” and “The nanny has something sticking out of her throat!” to whom was he directing those words? If the apartment was dark when Mrs. Krim arrived, why would Ortega turn off the lights if she intended to slit her own wrists and throat? It is certainly implausible that she turned the lights off afterwards. What is the motive? If Ortega was mentally disturbed enough to do something so unspeakably horrible, how could a family that has seen her every day and taken a trip with her to see her home country not see any signs of that?

Certainly, all of these questions will be addressed by investigators, as well as forensic evidence. It is impossible to know what really happened from media reports alone.


If it can be proven through forensic and other evidence that Ortega is indeed guilty of this terrible crime, then this case and the fact that the father of these children was the first to allow the largest class action monetary claim in the history of the federal courts to be nationally publicized, will be written off as a coincidence. If not, then someone may be sending a message to the corporate media that they had better toe the corporate line from now on. It will be interesting to follow the developments in both cases.

New Yorkers cited for not maintaining property after Sandy

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Residents in one Queens neighborhood are crying foul after they were written up for failing to clean up the city’s own mess. It is yet another new complication in life after Superstorm Sandy.

Rosanne and Joe Cavaliere are still trying to clean up from the hurricane….

They got it [the citation] on Nov. 9, cited with “failure to maintain” their property.

But as they pointed out to CBS 2’s Schneider on Tuesday night, it’s a city tree that they were waiting for the city to remove.

“It was over two weeks before someone came and removed it from the house, and we were patient enough with that, but then to just be slapped with a violation,” Joe Cavaliere said.

The Department of Buildings said the citation is a mere formality. It’s a way to keep track of all downed trees.

But for people in this neighborhood…it’s a permanent mark on their property that they want removed from the records.

“They’re not only upset, but they’re insulted.”

Iceland Financial Liberation – The Untold Story [1]

ICELAND -No news from Iceland?… why? How come we hear everything that happens in Egypt but no news about what’s happening in Iceland?

In Iceland, the people has made their government resign, the primary banks have been nationalized, it was decided to not pay the debt that these created with Great Britain and Holland due to their bad financial politics and a public assembly has been created to rewrite the constitution.

And all of this in a peaceful way. A whole revolution against the powers that have created the current global crisis. This is why there hasn’t been any publicity during the last two years: What would happen if the rest of the EU citizens took this as an example? What would happen if the US citizens took this as an example?

This is a summary of the facts:

2008: The main bank of the country is nationalized.
The Krona, the currency of Iceland devaluates and the stock market stops. The country is in bankruptcy

2008: The citizens protest in front of parliament and manage to get new elections that make the resignation of the prime minister and his whole government.
The country is in bad economic situation.
A law proposes paying back the debt to Great Britain and Holland through the payment of 3,500 million euros, which will be paid by the people of Iceland monthly during the next 15 years, with a 5.5% interest.

2010: The people go out in the streets and demand a referendum. In January 2010 the president denies the approval and announces a popular meeting.
In March the referendum and the denial of payment is voted in by 93%. Meanwhile the government has initiated an investigation to bring to justice those responsible for the crisis, and many high level executives and bankers are arrested. The Interpol dictates an order that make all the implicated parties leave the country.

In this crisis an assembly is elected to rewrite a new Constitution which can include the lessons learned from this, and which will substitute the current one (a copy of the Danish Constitution).
25 citizens are chosen, with no political affiliation, out of the 522 candidates. For candidacy all that was needed was to be an adult and have the support of 30 people. The constitutional assembly starts in February of 2011 to present the ‘magna carta’ from the recommendations given by the different assemblies happening throughout the country. It must be approved by the current Parliament and by the one constituted through the next legislative elections.

So in summary of the Icelandic revolution:
-resignation of the whole government
-nationalization of the bank.
-referendum so that the people can decide over the economic decisions.
-incarcerating the responsible parties
-rewriting of the constitution by its people

Have we been informed of this through the media?
Has any political program in radio or TV commented on this?
No! The Icelandic people have been able to show that there is a way to beat the system and has given a democracy lesson to the world.

Please spread the news as Iceland is the role model now although sooner or later, the banksters will start demilishing their nationalized bank.
