Benjamin Wey commented in a press release: “Government agencies were misled by the vindictive NASDAQ, FINRA – of which we are not even their damn members within their jurisdiction – but they colluded and blatantly retaliated against a NASDAQ-listed company, which had won against a rigged NASDAQ delisting, exposed racial profiling of China-based companies. These liars enriched their own commercial interests at our expense, purposefully lying to our government for personal gains in a rotten regulatory regime.” Stanford University says “Chinese reverse mergers outperform U.S. counterparts,” echoed by CNBC and Reuters; NY Law Journal confirms Federal Judge Alison Nathan Defends Constitutional Rights; The New York Times reported Made-up case against Wall Street financier follows government’s pattern of fabricated cases.

BREAKING NEWS: Federal judge P. Kevin Castel condemned the corrupt SEC staff Cheryl Crumpton, Derek Bentsen in a June 2, 2017 court order as “slyly feigns a belief… deceptive practice by the SEC.” And, Vindicated Lawyer William Uchimoto Sues SEC Enforcement Abusers Cheryl Crumpton, Derek Bentsen, Steven Susswein, Melissa Hodgman, Patrick Feeney, Joshua Braunstein for Fraud, Seeks Rule 11 Sanctions – SEC FOIA production.

BENJAMIN WEY never settles false claims while defeating racist retaliation exposed in NASDAQ’s lies told by Ed Knight and FINRA’s fabricated case planted by FINRA’s fraudulent Robert Colby, who orchestrated FINRA NAC fraud, FINRA kangaroo court, colluded with a liar Maureen Geartyexposed in here, in here, in hereMaureen Gearty was sued in a RICO fraud, in here and here, who conspired with the corrupt SEC imbeciles – Steven Susswein, Patrick Feeney, Cheryl Crumpton, Derek Bentsen, Melissa Hodgman, Joshua Braunstein – lied to judges, fabricated the law – shamelessly calling Benjamin Wey a “Chinaman” and a “Chinese nigger.” These regulatory abusers were duped by stock short seller criminals in Jon Carnes stock fraud, Roddy Boyd fraudsters, swindler Jon Carnes market manipulation and Roddy Boyd bribery, Roddy Boyd short seller fraud in here, and here, here, and here, and here.

“NASDAQ STOCK MARKET’S ED KNIGHT, THE CULPRIT BEHIND THE ABUSE”:  Senior NASDAQ staff lied to the DOJ, SEC agents, retaliated against a January 18, 2011 racial discrimination lawsuit against the Nasdaq by former U.S. Senator Arlen Specter. Within days on January 25, 2011, acting on NASDAQ’s lies, government agents illegally searched our offices, which was ruled a “gross violation” of our constitutional rights by federal court in June 2017. An SEC ruling in 2013 equally concluded the NASDAQ had rigged the delisting of a former client – China-based CleanTech Innovations, Inc, exposed by Forbes. Chinese companies can choose among 60 stock exchanges worldwide to go public. Many have ditched the racist NASDAQ, says the Corporate Counsel magazine. We have advised clients to dump the rigged NASDAQ in two multi-billion dollar “going private” deals – after the racist NASDAQ staff Edward Knight, Michael Emen, Gary Sundick, William Slattery, Alan Rowland were exposed by the SEC commissioners in a unanimous 2013 ruling as the NASDAQ racists targeting the Chinese, rigging a delisting – a landmark SEC decision that found “[T]he record does not show that the specific grounds on which NASDAQ based its delisting decision of [CleanTech Innovations] exist in fact” – it was the first time in NASDAQ’s history the NASDAQ thieves were caught. NASDAQ staff has literally committed crimes by lying to government agents. Who will be held accountable? Stay tuned…

“CHINESE OR JEWISH REVERSE MERGER? ANTI-CHINESE OR ANTI-SEMITIC?”: Investors invest to make a profit. No one cares if a company is a reverse merger – misconstrued by the malicious SEC, DOJ bureaucrats, or a risky IPO, says Stanford University research. The NYSE, Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett merged with a garment factory), Burger King, the $160 billion Pfizer-Allergan merger – the world’s largest pharma deal, plus 600 other U.S. listed companies are all reverse mergers. Bloomberg reported in Feb 2017 “reverse merger listings created billionaires worth $47 billion.” The fraudulent NASDAQ itself was a Form 10 public shell, not an IPO. 40% of public companies in China, Canada, Hong Kong, UK are reverse mergers – says Bloomberg. The racist SEC abusers coined a racist term “Chinese reverse merger.” But far more Israel-based reverse merger companies trade in the U.S. than those from China. Why haven’t the racist SEC staff Melissa Hodgman, Derek Bentsen, Cheryl Crumpton, Steven Susswein, Patrick Feeney or the SDNY DOJ labeled Israeli firms as Jewish reverse mergers?” How soon are they slaughtered as anti-Semites? Reverse merger is a routine business practice, defined by Investopedia. On May 26, 2017, The Wall Street Journal reported NYSE pursues listings of SPACs, reverse merger, direct listing companies.

“FRANKS HEARING, LIARS EXPOSED”: A venerable New York federal judge held a rare “Franks Hearing” on Jan 23, 2017 to investigate if “the Government acted in good faith.” The notorious FBI agent MATT KOMAR (shield #22666), who was caught lying repeatedly under oath, is the same lying fraudster being sued for fraud in David Ganek vs. Matt Komar, FBI etc. for fabricating evidence, ruining fund manager David Ganek and Level Global – costing them $4 billion, revealed in federal judge Pauley III’s court decision against Matt Komar, exposed in a 2nd Circuit court brief – reported by Reuters, Fortune, The New York TimesWall Street Journal, Forbes,CNBC – David Ganek is an American hero. Rogue FBI agent THOMAS MCGUIRE (NY Bar registration #3020781), who is a racist moron totally confused between China and Chinatown, who made extensive false affidavits under oath about normal market activities, is a repeat lawbreaker twice previously exposed in United States Vs. Metter and United States Vs. Jean-Pierre Neuhaus for fabricating vidence – “Who should I believe [between two FBI agents’ sworn testimony]?…it wasn’t a fog of memory… FBI Agent Thomas McGuire was prepped… It was a specific memory inconsistent with what Agent Thomas McGuire had testified to.” – Federal Judge Alison Nathan said in a hearing on Feb 17, 2017.  DAVID MASSEY, a fraudulent former SDNY prosecutor was caught fabricating a Nasdaq listing rule, whose tiny Richards, Kibbe & Orbe is deeply conflicted from double-dipping William Uchimoto, a 62-year-old Japanese American lawyer ruined by David Massey‘s fake story. The Franks Hearing was reported by New York Law Journal, Law 360. Exposing these facts serves the public interest and alerts the media. While the shameless former AUSA David Massey now makes millions a year at the tiny Richards, Kibbe & Orbe, the fraudster David Massey was found as a liar by the federal court. Click on the links below, expose the NASDAQ fraud, FINRA kangaroo court, SEC corruption, DOJ’s lies and #DrainTheSwampVINDICATION AFTER VICTORY: In March 2017, federal judge Robert Sweet DISMISSED a frivolous class action lawsuit which had been brought on exactly the same ground of the made-up SEC, DOJ false charges, vindicated Benjamin Wey and others. SEC staffer Melissa Hodgman was exposed as a liar and a fraudster. On March 27, 2017, SDNY federal judge P. Kevin Castel DISMISSED the SEC’s trumped-up case against lawyer William Uchimoto (a witness whose testimony led to CleanTech’s victory against the NASDAQ). Mr. Uchimoto has since filed a Rule 11 motion seeking sanctions against the SEC abusers for “committed a fraud,” quoted in “Ex-Big Law Partner Still Angry After SEC Fraud Claims Tossed” by New York Law Journal. The disgraced SEC fraud Melissa Hodgman was caught fabricating the Bill Uchimoto case, lying to the DOJ and got a job promotion riding on Asian scalps. On May 2, 2017, a federal judge ordered the NASDAQ to produce internal documents that would vindicate Mr. Wey, reported by Law360. On August 8, 2017, all charges were dismissed against Benjamin Wey and his firm. THE FACTS: NASDAQ and FINRA lied to the DOJ, fabricated a nonexistent “NASDAQ 300 shareholder gifting rule” violation – after the NASDAQ was sued for racism in 2011, was caught rigging a delistingwas publicly humiliated by the SEC in 2013. In retaliation, NASDAQ’s Ed Knight and FINRA’s Robert Colby manufactured so-called “corrupt brokers” garbage, exposed in a rigged FINRA NAC hearing, duped SEC and DOJ staff who were eager to pad their flimsy resumes by rolling Asian heads. NASDAQ’s William Slatterymade up a Nasdaq “300 holder rule,” targeted Asians and blacks, played a moronic former prosecutor David Massey like a fool – who was padding a thin resume for a private job. They made up a nonexistent law, made up a case, failed to coerce a black man Talman Harris to lie, exposed in Congressional investigations and triggered a 2nd Circuit Court appeal seeking justice“VIOLATED A NONEXISTENT LAW”: The SDNY DOJ was duped by the NASDAQ and a terminated five-week employee Raymond Phillips, who had failed to extort us to pay his Alaska child support and used lies told by convicted criminals, who were sued in federal court for RICO fraud. Can a law be violated when there is no law? – conceded by the SDNY DOJ in its own July 8, 2016 court filing: “no formal law existed.” The regulatory regime is rotten to the core when the SEC and DOJ bureaucrats lie and cheat to advance their personal careers. Media exposure and the honorable Court must hold these abusers accountable.   CRUMBLED CASES, LIARS EXPOSED: As predicted, on October 6, 2016, the racist SEC lawyer Derek Bentsen dropped a “fraud” charge against lawyer William Uchimoto – after ruining his life built over 40 years; On October 7, 2016, black American broker Talman Harris exposed FINRA, NASDAQ lies in his appeal to the 2nd Circuit, pursued Congressional investigations into FINRA NAC fraud, racist SEC abuses, corrupt SEC bureaucratsOn October 21, 2016, SEC lawyer Derek Bentsen was captured lying to federal judge P. Kevin Castel 5 times; On November 3, 2016, Derek Bentsen was exposed as a moron on Chinese law… In March 2017, lawyer William Uchimoto filed a historic Rule 11 sanctions motion against the SEC abusers Melissa Hodgman, Derek Bentsen, Cheryl Crumpton, Steven Susswein, Patrick Feeney, Joshua Braunstein for lying, cheating and raping his reputation. Regulatory abusers and liars must be exposed. “A RIGGED CASE, NASDAQ’S LIES:” Nasdaq fabricated a so-called “300 round lot shareholders gifting rule”, conceded by the SDNY DOJ in court filings on July 8, 2016; FACT: Senior NASDAQ staff has feverishly solicited our co-branded Asian investment club members for years to introduce new listings; FACT: NASDAQ rigged a listingwas sued for racism and lost; FACT: The SEC ruled that NASDAQ had rigged its listing, orchestrated by the shady NASDAQ General Counsel Ed Knight – a $100 million lobbyist, who conspired with FINRA (Robert Colby); FACT: The NASDAQ manipulation was strongly rebuked and reversed in a landmark SEC ruling, reported by ForbesFACT: the disgraced Ed KnightWilliam Slattery, Michael Emen and other NASDAQ staff retaliated, lied to law enforcement; FACT: In 2015, 26 Asian firms dumped the racist NASDAQ in droves (Wall Street Journal)FACT: Counting Bernie Madoff as the NASDAQ Chairman, companies have fled NASDAQNASDAQ is an investors grave and a threat to national security.  BENJAMIN WEY AMERICAN FINANCIER, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER, PROFESSOR: Benjamin Wey is a multilingual global financier, an investigative journalist, an American patriot, a China expert with 20 years’ experience.

In May 2013, an NYGG portfolio company Focus Media Holdings was acquired for $3.8 billion, left the NASDAQ and relisted in China for $8 billion – Wall Street Journal. Another NYGG portfolio company China Fire & Security was acquired for $265 million, dumped the NASDAQ. By 2015, our co-branded Asian investment club members had $1 billion in aggregated investment capital… In 2015 alone, 26 Chinese companies abandoned the racist NASDAQ, says Wall Street Journal. These many examples have revealed that the NASDAQ listing is a commodity service, has no intrinsic value for any company.

Job Search Success Hinges on Trump’s 5 Most Popular Words

Job Search Success Hinges on Trump's 5 Most Popular Words

Job search, follow Trump’s 5 words

Job search is heard. For a job seeker, presenting a polished image is a key to winning an employment. Whether you agree or disagree with Trump’s policies or rhetoric, Trump is a master at the art of the English language. In fact, study shows  Trump’s presidential win is attributed to his skillful use of certain key words during his campaign.

As employers, we all know the importance of winning over customers and learning from winners. A job seeker can certainly learn from Trump’s art of the words and use them properly to help enhance her chances of landing a dream job.

“WIN / WINNING”

Donald Trump says... We don’t win anymore. It will change. We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with winning. Believe me. You’ll never get bored with winning. You’ll never get bored! Work hard, be smart and always remember, winning takes care of everything!

You the job seeker: “I want to work for your because you are a winning organization;” “Winning strategies;” “A winning team.”

“WE/US”

Donald Trump says…  “We need to build a wall on the Mexican border. We are going to make great trade deals. We are going to bring back our jobs. We will totally dismantle Iran’s global terror network.”

You the job seeker: “We are a progressive firm;” “We are one team;” “We work hard to satisfy our customers…”

“SMART”

Donald Trump says.. “You have to be much smarter, or it’s never, ever going to end. I’m, like, a really smart person.”   (about the 2016 Republican Convention) Trump said his team will “make it interesting and informative, but also smart and different.”

You the job seeker: “We need to be smart with our strategies and plans;” “Smart customers demand smart solutions.”

“AMAZING”

Donald Trump says… Yesterday was amazing — 5 victories. (on first time voters in their 60s) That’s so amazing…it’s so amazing. (on next steps after winning the Nevada Caucus) It’s going to be an amazing two months.

You the job seeker: “It’s an amazing product;” “What an amazing organization.” “Amazing efforts.”

“TERRIFIC”

Donald Trump says… (on meeting with the Republican National Committee officials) … a terrific meeting. (on Obamacare) Repeal and replace with something terrific. (on newly-elected Muslim London mayor) If he does a good job and frankly if he does a great job, that would be a terrific thing.

You the job seeker: “It’s a terrific meeting;” “I really enjoy your terrific mentorship;” “You have a terrific team. I would love to be part of it. ”

In the real world, all employees or employers are disposable. What holds an employment relationship together in a successful firm is a simple philosophy, described by management expert Benjamin Wey:

We are smart people on a winning team doing amazing work for our terrific customers.”

In any job interview, you should always keep in mind: “What unique value proposition am I bringing to this amazing organization? What sets me apart from others?”

Isn’t that smart and terrific career advice? (Yes, I am paraphrasing Trump.) America has so much potential and so do you, the job seeker. Be bold, be aggressive and be confident in yourself. You will be just fine. Good luck job seekers.

Journalist Benjamin Wey Exposes False Charges, Regulatory Abuses

Journalist Benjamin Wey Exposes False Charges, Regulatory Abuses
Investigative journalist BENJAMIN WEY is upbeat these days: “I’am not even afraid of death, why would I be concerned about injustice and false accusations from ignorant, racist regulatory abusers?
Courageous investigative journalist BENJAMIN WEY never bends his principles winning against racist retaliation told in NASDAQ’s lies and FINRA’s fabricated “evidence” fed by the fraudulent FINRA general counsel Robert Colby, who orchestrated FINRA NAC fraud, kangaroo court, PLANTED lying “witnesses” in here, in here, in herehere, here, colluded with the corrupt SEC staff Steven Susswein, Cheryl Crumpton, Derek Bentsen – ignorant bigots lying to federal judges, calling Chinese Americans “chinaman” – duped by short sellers in Jon Carnes stock fraud, Roddy Boyd fraudsters, criminal Jon Carnes market manipulation and Roddy Boyd bribery, in here, and here, here, and here, and here. NASDAQ is a $12 billion money tree run by Wall Street fat cats, not a baby with diarrhea. Asian firms have options among 60 stock exchanges worldwide to go public – many have ditched the rigged NASDAQ listing – a dying commodity without scarcity value. We have advised Asian firms to dump the rigged NASDAQ in two largest, multi-billion dollar “going private” deals in recent history – after the racist NASDAQ general counsel Edward Knight was exposed by the Forbes Magazine for discrimination against the Chinese, rigged a Chinese company delisting, condemned by the SEC Commissioners in a historic SEC ruling against the NASDAQ. NASDAQ and FINRA retaliated with lies. Investors don’t care where a stock is listed, if it’s a reverse merger – misconstrued by U.S. regulators, or a risky IPO, says Stanford University. The NYSE, Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett’s company), Burger King, plus 800 other companies are all reverse mergers. Shamelessly, NASDAQ itself wasn’t an IPO. 40% of publicly traded companies in Hong Kong, China, Canada, Australia, UK are reverse mergers – basic knowledge told in a Bloomberg article dated October 26, 2016. The imbecile SEC bureaucrats demonize “Chinese reverse mergers.” But far more Israel-based reverse merger companies are in the U.S. than those from China. Do the anti-Chinese SEC bureaucrats dare label Israeli firms as “Jewish reverse mergers,” in the same way they profile the Chinese? Demonizing reverse merger companies is ignorant, racial profiling and anti-Semitism. Read the latest government missteps on racial profiling Chinese Americans, who are treated as second class citizens, exposed by The New York Times. Let’s #DrainTheSwamp.  
A Totally Fabricated Case – Racially Targeted, Politically Charged: The misinformed SDNY folks were deceived by NASDAQ and FINRA, who made up a law “violation” – after NASDAQ was sued for racism, caught rigging a Chinese company delisting, reversed in a historic SEC ruling. In revenge, three misled imbecile SEC staff  piled on the lies told by NASDAQ’s William Slattery, who invented a Nasdaq “300 round lot gifting rule” in pure fabrication, callously targeted Asian scalps, trumped up a law violation, made up evidence, coerced innocent people to lie, exposed in Congressional inquiries. The SDNY was duped by a false “affidavit” from a notorious agent MATT KOMAR (#22666) – the same rookie got caught lying to judges, fabricating “market manipulation,” fantasizing Asian events 10 years ago when Matt Komar was a high school kid. To advance his own career, the malicious agent Matt Komar concocted a fantasy story with a fired five-week employee (CS-1) named Raymond Phillips, who had extorted us to pay his Alaska child support. Can a law be violated when the law doesn’t exist? – conceded by the SDNY in its own July 8, 2016 court filing: “no formal law existed.” Then WTF is an “informal” law? Rigged? Not surprised: The rogue agent Matthew Komar is the same fraudster sued by renowned attorney Barry Scheck for ruining fund manager David Ganek and Level Global through his fabricated evidence, exposed by The New York TimesWall Street Journal and CNBC video. NASDAQ and FINRA defrauded the SDNY, was exposed, rigged a company delisting (evidence) and retaliated against SEC witnesses after the humiliated NASDAQ fraud was exposed by the SEC. Justice is rotten to the core of a rigged system: the SDNY bigotry is content with being fooled and having their intelligence insulted by FINRA and NASDAQ, abetting a rigged processlynching the Chinese. All because there is NO transparency and accountability! 
Breaking News: On August 12, 2016, in a court filing before well-regarded federal judge Alison Nathan, the crooked agent Matt Komar was slammed for “repeatedly cheating and lying to Magistrate Judge Michael Dolinger… intentionally manipulated the trading data… repeatedly defrauded the court;” On October 6, 2016, the shameless SEC lawyer Derek Bentsen dropped a major “fraud” charge against Asian American lawyer William Uchimoto – after ruining his life; On October 7, 2016, black American broker Talman Harris exposed FINRA, NASDAQ lies in an appeal to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, went public with his pursuit of justice and Congressional investigations into FINRA NAC, racist SEC abusesOn October 21, 2016, the SEC lawyer Derek Bentsen was captured lying to a federal judge 5 times… Regulatory abusers must be publicly exposed in a court of law. We welcome media attention. We expose all liars – we call out their names, no matter who they are. As Americans, when our free speech is muzzled, we lose our souls.  
It’s a fact: Nasdaq’s so-called “300 round lot gifting rule” was fabricated, admitted by the SDNY in court filings on July 8, 2016; It’s a fact: Senior NASDAQ staff has feverishly solicited our co-branded Asian investment club members for years to introduce new listings; It’s a fact: NASDAQ rigged a listingwas sued for racism and lost; It’s a fact: The SEC agreed that NASDAQ had rigged its listing, orchestrated by the shady NASDAQ General Counsel Ed Knight – a $100 million lobbyist, who conspired with FINRA (Robert Colby); It’s a fact: The NASDAQ manipulation was strongly rebuked and reversed in a landmark SEC ruling, reported by the Forbes MagazineIt’s a fact: the disgraced Ed KnightWilliam Slattery, Michael Emen and other NASDAQ staff retaliated, lied to law enforcement; It’s a fact: In 2015, 26 Asian firms dumped the racist NASDAQ in droves (Wall Street Journal)It’s a fact: Counting Bernie Madoff as a NASDAQ Chairman, companies have fled NASDAQNASDAQ is an investors grave and a threat to national security.

BENJAMIN WEY: MY ADVICE FOR FINDING YOUR DREAM JOB

BENJAMIN WEY MY ADVICE FOR FINDING YOUR DREAM JOB

BENJAMIN WEY MY ADVICE FOR FINDING YOUR DREAM JOB

Everyone wants to have a dream job.

We are getting to the time of the year in the summer when good jobs are hard to come by. For those of you who resolved to find your dream job this year, however, you probably haven’t really even started looking. So maybe it isn’t too late to succeed on that one.

At the risk of sounding like a cliché, I, Benjamin Wey, am going to quote Confucius, who is credited with saying, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” That is the definition of a dream job, and the tricky part is figuring out how to get paid for doing things you love. If you love being a bookkeeper, there are thousands of opportunities for your dream job, but you are also probably part of the smallest minority on the planet. Most of us love doing things that cost us money rather than generate an income.

The easy part is deciding what you’d like to do with your time. The hard part is figuring out how to get paid for it. No matter what the job, though, people are willing to pay you for just one thing: solving a problem for them. That’s the entire basis of the economy. We solve problems for each other.

You pay a doctor because she cures your illness; you pay a lawyer because he draws up your contracts; you pay a plumber because she unblocks the drain; you pay a mechanic because he fixes your car.

READ MORE: BENJAMIN WEY: STILL NEED A RESOLUTION? GET A SENSE OF URGENCY

The key to a dream job is deciding what it is that makes you happy and discover a problem that goes with it. Then, determine a way to solve that problem. So long as that problem exists in the field you like, and so long as no one else comes up with a better solution, you will have your dream job.

The mistake that people often make when looking for their dream job is that they start the process by thinking about jobs that exist that sound like they’d be fun. That is how a lot of disillusionment happens.

Some of the best jobs out there today didn’t exist 20 years ago. Social media jobs, for instance, are new, and they are constantly changing. Other jobs used to be the purview of a select few, like being an astronaut. Now, thanks to Virgin Galactic and others, there will soon be a private-sector space industry, and someone will have to pilot those ships — NASA doesn’t even have a launch vehicle anymore.

But what if there isn’t a company out there that you could work for, solving the problem you can solve in the field where you want to work? Well, take a deep breath, and start one.

The two Steves (Jobs and Wozniak) created the Apple computer because they wanted their own computer and purchasing a mainframe just wasn’t going to work. When their friends saw what they had built, an industry was born. They could have said, “Let’s go to work at IBM,” instead, and I expect they would have been miserable. They certainly would have been poorer.

So, what do you love, and what problem comes with it? You have 11 months to go.

“This is a victory for America’s liberty to free speech. Journalist BENJAMIN WEY never settles false claims, period.”

A spokesperson for Benjamin Wey commented:”Emotions aside, Benedict Morelli‘s common sense has finally prevailed. It’s smart for everyone to move on with peace. Mr. Wey never gives in to extortion. Facts and principles matter to readers of TheBlot Magazine.”

Representatives for the other parties did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

BENEDICT MORELLI, MORELLI LAW FIRM, ALLEGED “MIDGET LAWYERS, BIG FRAUD”

Benedict Morelli is a notorious four feet tall “midget lawyer, very short on the the law.” Benedict Morelli is also a verified law school dropout, exposed by Slate.com in an article titled “Skip Law School, Be a Lawyer Anyway.” The Slate says Benedict Morelli is a law school dropout and somehow was able to “practice law.” Like a doctor practicing medicine without a license, it’s curious how a “lawyer” without a law degree could practice law properly. The facts uncovered by Slate.com are troubling for the public and could pose danger to a potential Morelli client. Read more: TRACY MORGAN FOOLED, LAWYER BENEDICT MORELLI NEVER GRADUATED LAW SCHOOL.

In 2014, Benedict Morelli was sued by City Bank for committing massive bank frauds involving millions of dollars by defrauding four banks. In New York Supreme Court filings, City Bank charged Benedict Morelli, his wife Arlene Morelli, office manager David Ratner with embezzlement and fraud, accused the defendants of simultaneously pledging the same assets with multiple lenders and “wearing many badges of fraud” – classic bank fraud claims. The FBI was involved in the ongoing investigations into the activities of Benedict Morelli, Arlene Morelli, David Ratner, fraud “lawyer” Martha McBrayer and their former paralegal Zoe Bartholomay, a law student at Fordham Law School.

Benedict Morelli and former partner David Ratner are the same shysters behind the failed extortion of Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly. New York Post reports that when Benedict Morelli’s son Alexander Morelli couldn’t pass the law school entrance exam in 2012, Benedict Morelli sued the Law School Admission Council for making the law school exam “too difficult” for Alexander Morelli’s intellectually handicapped brain, which had “learning and attention disabilities.” New York Post says “Before the younger Alexander Morelli starts worrying about law school, however, he may need to clear up some questions about his college career. Syracuse University, where Alexandar Morelli was enrolled from August 2007 through December 2011, said Alexander Morelli “has not graduated.”

Public records confirmed a long and shady history of the Morelli Law Firm and the fraudulent Morelli “lawyers”: Benedict Morelli, David Ratner, Martha McBrayer were sued for sexual harassment by a black legal assistant; they were sued by Canon and CIT leasing as well as Leaf Capital Funding and De Laga Financial for not paying copier leases; their office landlord sued Morelli Law Firm, Benedict Morelli, David Ratner, Martha McBrayer for defaulting on office rent payments… The shady Morelli law firm changed its names at least a dozen times to evade creditors…

In 2015, Benedict Morelli, Morelli Law Firm, David Ratner were sued by Texas based Lapolla Industries for fraud and fabricating evidence in a bogus product liability lawsuit, says Law360, in an article: Lapolla Wants Sanctions Against Benedict Morelli, David Ratner For Bogus Toxic Foam Suit. An agitated federal judge in New York’s Eastern District was so disgusted with the Morelli abusers and she slapped Benedict Morelli, David Ratner and his tiny Morelli Law Firm with a record fine in recent New York history – a nasty record for shameless lawyers… Read more: JUDGE SLAMS SHADY MORELLI LAW FIRM WITH MASSIVE COURT SANCTIONS, FRAUD CHARGES.
In 2015, the ambulance chasers Benedict Morelli and David Ratner sued energy drink “Red Bull”, blaming the drink maker for not making the Morelli lawyers literally grow wings after they had consumed the juice. In the Red Bull case, the Morelli gang misled federal judge Katherine Polk Failla. In 2015, Benedict Morelli and partner Jeremy Alters were sued by the Florida Bar forembezzling client trust funds in the millions of dollars. Jeremy Alters was embroiled in a legal battle with the Florida Bar Association to salvage his professional life… Read more: JEREMY ALTERS, MORELLI ALTERS RATNER LAW FIRM, FACE DISBARMENT, FRAUD CHARGES.

To the uninformed public, it seems like the shady Morelli Law Firm “midget lawyers, big fraud” allegations are true, and Benedict Morelli’s shady dealings just keep piling up like trash in a dumpster too nasty for readers popping eyes…

JOURNALIST BENJAMIN WEY, WINNER AGAINST EXTORTION

After journalists exposed the Morelli Law Firm‘s long history of alleged fraud and malpractice,Benedict Morelli retaliated and threatened Benjamin Wey and TheBlot Magazine (Voice for the Voiceless, millions of readers a year) with a court notification for a $300 million lawsuit, attempting to shut down the internet, choke free speech. The popular TheBlot Magazine (Voice for the Voiceless – millions of readers a year) never gives in to extortion. According to public records, the midget lawyers David Ratner and Benedict Morelli conspired with a convicted cocaine and drug criminal James Chauvet – who had fed the party girl Hanna Bouveng with cocaine and Ecstasy,extorted journalist Benjamin Wey with an $850 million “sexual harassment” lawsuit. The frivolous lawsuit was defeated.

In court testimony, the Swedish cocaine user Hanna Bouveng changed her stories at least six times before the highly respected federal judge Paul Gardephe. Bouveng hid from the jury crucial evidence of Hanna Bouveng‘s extensive cocaine use as well as coaching witnesses during trial. Hanna Bouveng couldn’t “remember” a single incident of a “sexual harassment” ever occurred. They were all fabricated to extort money. “It was all made up,” Hanna Bouveng confessed to Andre Koluman, her boss and a married man in an extramarital affair with Bouveng. “My life would be set if I could squeeze big money out of the American financier.” Read more: OP-ED: BURNED: SWEDISH PARTY GIRL HANNA BOUVENG SWIMS IN CRIMINAL HOT WATER.

During trial, Hanna Bouveng also “omitted” critical facts that she had been engaged in anextramarital affair for more than two years with her boss Andre Koluman, owner of Bistro Linné (former Cafe Linne, Strandvägen 9, Stockholm). Koluman was a key witness that testified and lied during the Hanna Bouveng extortion trial.

MORELLI LAW FIRM, MIDGET LAWYERS?

In the height slight, Theblot Magazine‘s contributing writers called Benedict Morelli a “4-foot-tall midget lawyer,” who is “short on the law.”

“Benedict Morelli is, in fact, about 5 foot tall,” according to New York Post writer Julia Marsh. It’s unclear if Julia Marsh has fact-checked Benedict Morelli’s ID. “It’s a fact Benedict Morelli is a short dude, never graduated law school. Benedict Morelli‘s troubling history wasn’t invented by readers. It was the truth,” said a spokesperson for TheBlot Magazine. Court records show that Gibson Dunn, one of the nation’s most prominent law firms indeed charged Benedict Morelli with bank fraud, a serious claim with cooperating bank witnesses against Benedict Morelli.

A $300 MILLION FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT UP IN SMOKE…

The Benedict Morelli “lawyers” threatened a $300 million lawsuit. However, after reviewing evidence of government investigations into Benedict Morelli, David Ratner, Martha McBrayer and the tiny Morelli Law Firm, the wild $300 million Morelli lawsuit never materialized and was voluntarily withdrawn. After a year of noise and tormenting fact finding, on March 14, 2016, Morelli’s capable lawyers at New York litigation boutique Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman LLP quietly and voluntarily withdrew a litigation notice from the New York Supreme Court and killed a frivolous threat.

THE LAST BREATH, THE MORELLI LAW FIRM ARMAGEDDON

In October 2015, the notorious Morelli Ratner law firm broke up and went out of business.The ambulance chaser lawyers involved in the Hanna Bouveng extortion: Benedict Morelli(midget lawyer, a law school dropout), David Ratner (midget lawyer, big fraud) and Martha McBrayer (a fraudulent lawyer, extortionist) scattered like flies and mosquitoes…. Under heavy regulatory scrutiny, financial insolvency and a doomed business model of threat and extortion, the tiny Morelli Law Firm was over. 

As the obscure Morelli Law Firm blew up in smoke, the extortionist and cocaine user Hanna Bouveng hides in Sweden indulging in a three year extramarital affair with her boss Andre Koluman. In December 2015, Hanna Bouveng wrecked the Koluman family, kicked Andre Koluman‘s wife and their two four year old kids out of the Koluman home… The Kolumans filed divorce and Hanna Bouveng is now minding a small Swedish coffee shop in Sweden as the new “Mrs. Andre Koluman.”

FINRA TARGETS DIVERSITY, RACIAL DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN, BLACKS

ENOUGH ABUSES FROM FINRA 

FINRA, the rigid straitjacket of financial regulation, brazenly ran one of the most successful and few high-profile women off of Wall Street and into the Silicon Valley.Ruth Porat, the highest ranked female on Wall Street has left Morgan Stanley for Google — and that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), which oversees brokers and broker dealers, is the impartial — and corrupt — Wall Street watchdog, headed by amultimillionaire Richard Ketchum as its Chairman and CEO.

While the average American family’s ANNUAL income barely goes above $55,000, FINRA pays its CEO Richard Ketchum $300,000 per month to head the “non-profit” FINRA. Is there anything wrong here? Correct, FINRA’s “non-profit” status is a facial mask to fool the American public while the FINRA bureaucrats collect millions of dollars each year extorting SMALL businesses.

Following the financial crisis that began in 2008 when many banks and financial institutions closed their doors, new waves of regulation to control the more daring investment strategies were forced on those that remained. The straitjacket of overregulation emanating from FINRA is the main reason Ruth Porat’s departure. In the mostly white male world of Wall Street, diversity is not a dirty word but something seen to be tolerated, not embraced or encouraged. No woman has ever been at the very top of a Wall Street investment bank and with its most-powerful female executive departing for Google, that likely won’t happen any time soon either.

Before leaving to take over the same title in Silicon Valley, Ruth Porat was one of the only female CFOs in the financial industry and, by far, the most powerful. This is a woman who was not only respected for her high acumen across the board by the industry in the U.S., but around the world as well. While high numbers of women entered and became successful in the financial industry in the 1980s, there has since been a rollback on that progress with many leaving or not pursuing financial careers as studies show men continue to dominate in the traditionally male-led industry, largely due to regulatory abuses by FINRA.

In 2013, President Barack Obama was rumored to be considering Ruth Porat for the next Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, the nation’s second-in-command of the money supply and fiduciary policies. Instead, Porat took on an even bigger challenge that threatened to topple our entire financial system, and she showed incredible leadership and courage during the financial crisis. Despite having a chance at a high-profile government gig, Porat opted to help pull Morgan Stanley out of the depths of its woes. Not only did people like her help stabilize a vital American financial institution, the work done to assist major companies’ recovery was a first step toward getting the country’s economy ­— and that of the world at large — back on its feet.

Anyone questioning this move should be asking themselves why the sudden, drastic career change? The reason is simple if the way in which FINRA regularly operates is understood.

The authority came to be in 2007 when the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) merged with the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to create FINRA. Since inception and the coming of the 2008 recession, FINRA has produced massive overregulation, regulatory abuse and has operated with discriminatory investigative practices which have only become worse and worse each and every year.

Supposedly, FINRA regulates all firms evenly, however those in the business and on the Street know the regulatory body goes particularly hard against small brokerage firms. Even more egregiously, it targets black brokers and now with Porat, FINRA may have chased off the most successful woman in the business as well.

There is no evidence against Talman Harris. There is no reason to kill his career and there is no reason to put his unborn baby’s future in the limbo only because the dumb academic CHRIS BRUMMER, FINRA’s rubber stamp NATIONAL ADJUDICATORY COUNCIL (NAC) wanted to single out Mr. Harris as a TARGET to destroy.

MEET CHRIS BRUMMER, THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY FINRA UNCLE TOM EXPOSED

CHRIS BRUMMER, Georgetown Law School professors asks: “Does the truth matter in FINRA hearings?” The answer is “No”. In the book of FINRA, it is a white men’s elite club. Uncle Tom Chris Brummer is the exception. Talman Harris could not possibly get ahead, he is black and he was called the “N word” by the racist FINRA staffer Jeffrey Bloom. As far as Chris Brummer, Chris Brummer is no doubt the 21st century “Uncle Tom” for FINRA.

“CHRIS BRUMMER has no regulatory background whatsoever. CHRIS BRUMMER is an academic with hardly any experience in the real world,” says American patriot Talman Harris. “I am very upset with Chris Brummer and his other FINRA cronies that have targeted me and destroyed my life only because I am BLACK. I have very serious claims against them individually and against FINRA. CHRIS BRUMMER owes my good name back – a professional with a 20 year clean regulatory history; CHRIS BRUMMER has screwed up my life; CHRIS BRUMMER has screwed over my pregnant wife, and CHRIS BRUMMER has screwed up the future of my unborn child! ”

FINRA RUBBER STAMP CHRIS BRUMMER THREATENS JOURNALISTS, EXPOSED  

In January 2015, FINRA’s notorious rubber stamp, an obscure FINRA National Adjudicatory Council (NAC) headed by CHRIS BRUMMER, a Georgetown University academic affirmed FINRA’s racially motivated decision. Since then, CHRIS BRUMMER has repeatedly harassed journalists and attempted to silence the media that has exposed his undisclosed payments received from convicted felons.

JULIE BAUER, (Tel: 202-7288217, Email: julie.bauer@finra.org ), FINRA’s head of government relations declined to comment on FINRA’s regulatory abuses against Talman Harris. Talman Harris’s first child is due in June 2015…

Under the thumb of CHRIS BRUMMER, research shows FINRA’s NAC has ruled in favor of FINRA staff 100% of the time. Has Chris Brummer committed fraud  in a FINRA Kangaroo Court headed by Chris Brummer?  It’s obvious.

FINRA STAFFER JEFFREY BLOOM, CHRIS BRUMMER, GEORGETOWN LAW SCHOOL, REGULATORY ABUSERS, FRAUD

RACIST FINRA STAFFER JEFFREY BLOOM, CHRIS BRUMMER, GEORGETOWN LAW SCHOOL, REGULATORY ABUSERS, FRAUD

At some point the question has to be asked: When is someone, a group of people or a campaign against FINRA going to curtail or finally put an end to this abuse? How many hard-working brokers will be targeted and taken down by the regulatory body because their crime in FINRA’s eyes is being black? And how many powerful Wall Street women do we have to lose before people begin saying “enough is enough?”

If FINRA can push a well-respected and seasoned 28-year veteran off Wall Street all the way to the Silicon Valley, then the rest of the industry simply doesn’t have a fighting chance against the likes of its Chairman and CEO Rick Ketchum or Alan Lawhead, director of its Appellate Group, or a MICHAEL GARAWSKI, a FINRA bureaucrat that only exists in the shadow — or the blatantly biased regulators Jeffrey Bloom and Robert Morris.

FINRA stinks from top down like anything sick and rotten. These are just a few of the slimy characters spreading their mess all over the Street. It’s about time FINRA’s overregulation and the handcuffing of Wall Street executives is exposed to the light of scrutiny. It might be time to do some serious spring cleaning.

Benjamin Wey Fights Back Against False Charges, Regulatory Abusers

Benjamin Wey Fights Back Against False Charges
“Journalist BENJAMIN WEY never bends his principles fighting back racist retaliationtold in NASDAQ’s lies and FINRA’s fabricated ‘evidence,’ who PLANTED lying witnesses in here, in here, in here and here to inflame fantasies by corrupt, imbecile SEC staff Steven Susswein, Cheryl Crumpton who shamelessly used racial slursshort sellers in Jon Carnes stock fraud, market manipulation and Roddy Boyd bribery, Roddy Boyd fraud in here, and here, here, and here, and here. NASDAQ is a $10 billionbusiness run by Wall Street fat cats, not a naive baby sucking toes. Asian firms choose among 60 stock exchanges worldwide to go public – many have joyfully ditched the rigged NASDAQ listing – a dying commodity with no scarcity value worthy of “deception for listing.” Jut the opposite, we have advised Asian companies to dump the riggedNASDAQ in two largest ‘going private‘ deals in recent history. Investors never care where a stock is listed, or if it’s a reverse merger – often misconstrued, or a risky IPO, says Stanford University. The NYSE, Berkshire Hathaway, Burger King, plus 800other companies are all reverse mergers – the NASDAQ itself wasn’t an IPO… 30-40% of all public companies listed in Hong Kong, Canada, Australia, UK are reverse mergers – common knowledge in basic corporate finance.
The misinformed SDNY folks were deceived by the NASDAQ and FINRA, duped by fraud stock short sellers, thus fabricated laws that never existed – in pure “doctrinal novelty,” fabricated a case with manufactured evidence – were lied to by a false, malicious “affidavit” from an ignorant, notorious rookie agent MATT KOMAR – who fantasized about normal events in Asian finance 10 years ago when Matt Komar was still a kid in high school. Matt Komar is the same lying rookie agent sued for fabricating evidence in another case. Could a law be violated when the law doesn’t exist in fact? Let the public media sanitize their lies. No one should be afraid of the truth in a land of free speech and liberty that we Americans cherish. 
It’s a fact: Nasdaq’s so-called “300 round lot gifting rule” was fabricated; It’s a fact: Senior NASDAQ staff has feverishly solicited our co-branded Asian investment club members for years to introduce new listings; It’s a fact: NASDAQ rigged a listingwas sued for racism and lost; It’s a fact: The SEC agreed: NASDAQ had rigged its listing, orchestrated by the shady NASDAQ General Counsel Ed Knight – a $100 million lobbyist, who was also former general counsel of FINRA (two lying entities); It’s a fact: The NASDAQ manipulation was strongly rebuked and reversed in a landmark SEC ruling, reported by the Forbes MagazineIt’s a fact: Ed Knight, William Slattery, other NASDAQ staff retaliated, lied to law enforcement; It’s a fact: In 2015, 26 Asian companies dumped the racist NASDAQ in droves (Wall Street Journal)It’s a fact: Counting Bernie Madoff as a NASDAQ Chairman, companies have fled NASDAQNASDAQ is an investors grave and a threat to America’s national security.”

BENJAMIN WEY — TURN MONEY INTO MORE MONEY WITH CURRENCY TRADING

Benjamin-Wey-Turn-Money-Into-More-Money-With-Currency-Trading

Benjamin Wey is a financier and a journalist.

A graduate of Columbia University, Benjamin Wey has two master’s degrees and almost two decades of operational experience in the fields of marketing and management science. He shares his thoughts and advice with our readers:

They say it takes money to make money. This has never been truer than in currency trading. The international currency market, called the foreign exchange market (“forex” or “FX” for short), is the single largest financial market in the entire world, trumping stocks, bonds, derivatives and anything else you can throw at it with over $4 trillion in activity daily. It was once solely the stomping ground of behemoth financial institutions, but now the average investor can try to grab a piece of that trillion-dollar pie through online trading. Take a look at this intro to trading currency on the foreign exchange market.

Trading in currency is often compared to trading in stocks, except, in a way, you are buying stock in a country. You are buying a country’s currency in the hopes that the country will perform well economically and therefore increase the value of its currency and, in turn, your investment. The value of a currency is based on its relationship to other currencies, so in the forex, currencies are quoted in pairs. This may seem odd, but currency is the standard by which all things measure their value. The market value of a commodity is just based on how much currency it is worth, so the same is true with currency itself.

There are many pairs, but there are four major pairs that account for the majority of trading:

  • The British Pound and U.S. Dollar (GBP/USD)
  • The Euro and U.S. Dollar (EUR/USD)
  • The U.S. Dollar and Swiss Franc (USD/CHF)
  • The U.S. Dollar and Japanese Yen (USD/JPY)

Let’s take the GBP/USD pair. In this pair, the GBP is what is called the base currency and the USD is the quote currency. The base currency is the first currency listed in a pair. Today you would see a quote that says this:

GBP/USD= 1.66

That means that it would take $1.66 USD to buy a single British Pound. The pair always shows how much of the quote currency it takes to equal a single unit of base currency. If you bought in at this price for a single pound and the quote went up to, say, 1.70 because the British economy went on an upswing, the value in American dollars would go up. So you paid $1.66 and now you have $1.70 in pounds and you can sell that pound back for American money and make a $.04 profit. Of course, you can’t just buy a single unit on the forex.

In order to trade currency, you will have to go through an online broker. These brokers are much different than stock brokers because the forex is much different from the stock market.  There is no exchange on which currency is traded, but banks and other financial institutions trade amongst themselves all over the world. Brokers don’t charge commissions like stock brokers, but instead make their money on the spread. The spread is the small difference, measured in fractions calledpips, between what they will buy a currency at (bid price) and what they will sell a currency at (ask price).

An example quote would be:

GBPUSD – 1.6671 – 1.6677

This is a spread of six pips. They will buy at 1.6671, but they will sell at 1.6677.

Benjamin Wey summarizes

It’s similar to a pawn shop in that you will never be able to sell at the price at which you can buy. That’s how they make their money. Different brokers offer different spreads. They usually get a better spread based on the volume of business they do with a certain financial institution. Once again, it’s not like the stock market. A bank will give Broker 1 a better deal than Broker 2 if Broker 1 brings that bank a great deal more business. Just make sure to go with a reliable broker because regulation is much more lax than the stock market.

Even though it may seem different and confusing, trading in currency is similar to any investment in that you want to buy low and sell high. It can be very risky, but so can many other investments. As I always say: make sure to do your homework before making any investment, currency trading included. But it never hurts to know yet another way you can turn money into more money.

If I, Benjamin Wey, would trade currency on a daily basis, I would strict follow these rules. Good luck trading!

DUNE LAWRENCE, A RACIST BLOOMBERG TROLL

DUNE-LAWRENCE-BLOOMBERG-BUSINESSWEEK-JOURNALIST-THE-TROLL-SMEAR

DUNE LAWRENCE, A SELF-PROCLAIMED INTERNET TROLL, THE $1 LOSING BETS

Bloomberg BusinessWeek reporter DUNE LAWRENCE proudly calls herself an INTERNET TROLL. She certainly looks and acts like one. Behind her fancy title is a “mainstream reporter” with a notorious reputation as a racist. The “Bloomberg” brand gives her ammo to attack businesspeople with intruding questions, malign their characters with false articles and murder their professional lives without ever being held accountable. People on the receiving ends of her negative stories have no choice but silently take her hits. Read more: OP-ED: RACIST BLOOMBERG REPORTER DUNE LAWRENCE DUPED BY STOCK SWINDLER JON CARNES.

Dune Lawrence’s reckless assassination of innocent people’s character came to an abrupt halt when TheBlot Magazine (Voice for the Voiceless, Millions of Readers a Year) lets the “non-mainstream” media folks exercise some free speech – stories from those who have been wronged. TheBlot Magazine keeps the media honest through persistent and opinionated content:

“If you have been wronged by the media, TheBlot Magazine will tell your side of the story, free of edits. It’s the Voice for the Voiceless.”

Business executives across America are often attacked by tabloid writers like Dune Lawarence. No matter how wrong the accusations may be, businessmen often bite the bullets and move on: “It’s not worth the fight.” Does it sound fair? How should Dune Lawrence react to media criticism when her fraud is exposed and the spotlight is on her? Writers with the highly popular TheBlot Magazine (Voice for the Voiceless, Millions of Readers a Year) wanted to find out through an experiment on Lawrence, with $1 bets from some readers. In 2012, we asked Dune Lawrence a simple and fair question:

“IS AMERICA’S FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO FREE SPEECHE EXCLUSIVE FOR YOU AND BLOOMBERG? HER ANSWER: YES!” 

It wasn’t quite what we had expected from a “mainstream” reporter. Our $1 bets on her were immediately lost. After more questions sent her way, Dune Lawrence went radio silent. We concluded “it was okay for Lawrence and her failing magazine to slaughter people’s reputation, but it was not acceptable when the tables were turned on them.” Dune Lawrence is quite a hypocrite with a serious double standard.

MEDIA IS A BUSINESS, A NECESSARY DETERRENT

“Media is not a good business. But it’s a necessary cost of doing good business,” Donald Trump once said. “Media is a mouthpiece for someone. Having friends in the media is a deterrent against lies and abuses.” Mr. Trump is right.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek loses about $8 million a year. The New York Post loses about $45 million and The New York Daily News rings up losses of more than $35 million a year. Why do their owners keep these expensive zombies alive? Well, we never read anything bad about the owners of these publications, do we? Owning a tabloid paper is a deterrent against abuses.

According to Business Insider, six corporations control 90% of the media markets in America. Media bosses such asMichael Bloomberg (owns Bloomberg BusinessWeek), Rupert Murdoch (owns Fox, New York Post, Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones) and Mort Zuckerman (owner of New York Daily News, U.S. News and World Report) are “immune” from negative publicity. Aren’t these billionaires just as controversial as any other successful businessmen? The answer is simple: They own the media and they control what the American public should read. Dune Lawrence dare not write a salacious article about Michael Bloomberg only because: 

“The media tycoons can toss a minnow reporter DUNE LAWRENCE straight into the Hudson River faster than she can say ‘OMG!

DUNE LAWRENCE, A “PUMPER” FOR ILLEGAL STOCK SHORT SELLING “DUMPERS”

Unknown to the American public, the obscure Bloomberg BusinessWeek reporter Dune Lawrence is the loudest mouth for Wall Street’s dark world of illegal stock short sellers. Short selling is a shady ecosystem betting on America’s failure: Illegal stock short sellers dump a company’s shares they don’t own at a certain price. They bribe a corrupt tabloid writer like Dune Lawrence to publish negative stories on the company. When the share price drops, short sellers buy back the stock and pocket the price difference as profits. The lower a company’s share price goes, the more money the short sellers make. At the end of the short game, retirement funds and retail investors are left holding the bag.

A tabloid writer like Dune Lawrence typically gets a cut out of the illicit pile of cash – as much as 30%. The short selling scheme is quite a profitable venture for dirty reporters. Reporters in general are poorly paid, overworked and tend to drink excessively. The collusion between stock short sellers and shady journalists is an illegal act the SEC calls “short and distort.”

BLOOMBERG REPORTER DUNE LAWRENCE EXPOSED IN JON CARNES, RODDY BOYD FRAUD SCANDAL

The award-winning DeepCapture magazine has written plenty about corrupt journalists and stock criminals. Dune Lawrence,Roddy Boyd, Barron’s Bill Alpert are among some of the featured “shady stars.” DeepCapture reports that the Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) is in the pockets of the notorious short selling hedge fund Kingsford Capital, which has given CJR $1 million in exchange for hit pieces on companies Kingsford has sold short.

CJR has confirmed that one of its major “donors” is indeed Kingsford Capital – a California hedge fund known for short selling stocks. When asked about the apparent conflict of interest between Kingford’s money and CJR’s glowing articles on Roddy Boyd – a tabloid writer on Kingsford’s payroll, CJR wouldn’t comment further. Dune Lawrence quickly hung up the phone when she was asked the same question. The fascinating DeepCapture story is here: New Evidence Raises Serious Questions About Kingsford Capital’s “Donation” to the Columbia Journalism Review.  In 2013, the stock short seller criminal Jon Carnes bribed Dune Lawrence and her ex Roddy Boyd, in exchange for praises from Dune Lawrence and hit articles on Carnes’ short selling targets.

On America’s main street, the words for the short seller and journalist conspiracy are shorter: The short sellers are the “Dumper” and Dune Lawrence the “Pumper.” Dune Lawrence the “Pumper” is the “queen” of “short and distort” stock schemes. Taking advantage of business leaders’ natural inclinations to stay out of negative media spotlights, Lawrence has built a shady career through constant attacks on businessmen in exchange for bribes to line her pockets.

DUNE LAWRENCE, a Fraud Bloomberg Reporter, A Racist Troll Bathing in a Smear Campaign

DUNE LAWRENCE, THE SHADY TACTICS OF “JOURNALISM” 

Dune Lawrence‘s rhetorical tactic is simple: She contacts the CEO of a public company and introduces herself as a “mainstream” Bloomberg reporter seeking comment on a story. Trusting the Bloomberg name, the businessman answers her questions without knowing he is the subject of Lawrence’s smear campaign. After the bad story comes out, the businessman CEO is often devastated – his stock price gets cut in half, his company is ruined and he faces years of class action lawsuits from ambulance chasing lawyers. The negative publicity forever stains the CEO. Worse, the poor victim has no venue in the media to tell his side of the story. If the CEO has guts, he would demand a retraction. Bloomberg’s lawyers give a standard one-sentence, cookie-cutter response: “If you want to sue Dune Lawrence or Bloomberg, we are protected as journalists under our First Amendment Rights to free speech.”

American investigative journalist Benjamin Wey has firsthand experience with Dune Lawrence’s tactics and lies. “Dune Lawrence was banned from China in 2012 for smearing the Chinese president. 100% of her China stories are negative,” a spokesman for Benjamin Wey told reporters. “For at least six years,  Mr. Wey carried the ‘flag of China’ on his back. Every time Dune Lawrence wrote anything about China, she dragged Benjamin Wey’s name through the mud. Dune Lawrence lies, cheats and steals.” Read more: DUNE LAWRENCE, BLOOMBERG REPORTER FABRICATED AGFEED INDUSTRIES FRAUD STORY.

DUNE LAWRENCE, THE UNTOLD TRUTH BEHIND HER MARCH 2016 EXTORTION, ULTIMATUM

For more than four years, Benjamin Wey has not been in touch with Dune Lawrence. In March 2016, an email from Lawrence suddenly appeared: It was an ultimatum in an extortion attempt.

“Dune Lawrence told Benjamin Wey: ‘Remove the comments about me, or I will start a campaign to ‘get even’ with you in a big Bloomberg story…”

Years ago, the popular TheBlot Magazine (Voice for the Voiceless, Millions of Readers a Year) exposed Dune Lawrence’s shady dealings with stock criminals. One of her clients is the notorious stock fraudster Jon Carnes. In 2013, Jon Carnes was indicted by law enforcement for orchestrating short selling stock frauds. Jon Carnes was exposed in a story Illegal Stock Short Seller Jon Carnes Caught in Securities Fraud, Duped the SEC. In a separate press release, the government said Jon Carnes used a fake name “Alfred Little” and engaged in massive stock short selling manipulation. Before Jon Carnes was indicted, Lawrence had published series of glowing stories praising Carnes as a stock-picking “genius.” RODDY BOYD, Carne’s co-conspirator and Lawrence’s ex boyfriend admitted that he had received bribes from Jon Carnes on Lawrence’s behalf. Roddy Boyd is the tabloid market manipulator behind a sham outfit called “Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation” – a front for illegal stock short sellers. The following evidence is copied directly from Roddy Boyd’s own website. Read more: Stock short seller Jon Carnes crime family spent two years in prison.

“I don’t think anyone likes to be extorted by Dune Lawrence,” said journalist Benjamin Wey. “I replied to Dune Lawrence’s March email with best wishes and asked her to leave me alone. Somehow she’s obsessed with me and is angry about China.”Lawrence wasn’t interested in a good gesture – she was already holding a loaded gun. In mid March 2016, Lawrence published a 4,600-word salacious article in Bloomberg, calling herself an “internet troll” in an “Art of Smear.” The article was pure nonsense. Read more: DUNE LAWRENCE, BLOOMBERG, ADMITS BEING TECHNOLOGICALLY IDIOTIC.

DUNE LAWRENCE, 300 NEW TWITTER FOLLOWERS, DEATH THREATS

“Dune Lawrence has lied badly. She has repeatedly harassed Mr. Wey,” said a spokesperson forBenjamin Wey. “After four years of peace, Dune Lawrence smeared Mr. Wey again in March 2016.”

“Dune Lawrence came to Mr. Wey in March 2016, on her own, uninvited, only because her boring Bloomberg stories needed a sensational bump in readership.”

In her dragging Bloomberg article, Dune Lawrence “poured her heart out,” pounded her chest like a familiar friend in a zoo, screamed louder than a newborn baby lying in a wet diaper. Lawrence’s sour grapes produced some “great” results: Three hundred new Twitter followers – doubling what she had before. For Mr. Wey? Several death threats came in.

“The mainstream media is corrupt and dishonest,” said Donald Trump. “We will hold them accountable for their actions.”

We disagree with the strident Trump on many things. He is right about Dune Lawrence. “The media is a bitch. One may find the perfect definition in Dune Lawrence,” readers may agree.

NORWAY, A COUNTRY OF MILLIONAIRE, WHAT SHOULD AMERICA LEARN?

NORWAY, A COUNTRY OF MILLIONAIRE, WHAT SHOULD AMERICA LEARN

As of May 2016, every Norwegian is a millionaire from that nation’s wealth accumulation over the last many decades. According Bernie Sanders, the Norwegian model is the right choice for America also. That doesn’t mean that every Ole and Lena drives a Rolls-Royce and washes down their lutefisk and loubscoutch (don’t ask) with Veuve Clicquot. However, the Norwegians have done something that we Americans could and should do but haven’t. They’ve invested the money from their natural resources, mainly oil and gas revenues from the North Sea, in a sovereign wealth fund.

First off, I have to confess to stretching the truth a tiny bit. They are only millionaires in Norwegian kroner, one of which is worth about a sixth of a U.S. dollar. The fund has 5.1 trillion kroner and there are not quite 5.1 million people there. That’s a million kroner each, and that works out to be about $161,000 per person at current exchange rates. Still, it’s a decent sum.

According to ABC News, “Norway still has a national debt of 759 billion crowns or about 25 percent of gross domestic product. By comparison, the U.S. debt of $19 trillion is about 120 percent of GDP. In case you’re wondering, that’s $62,733 owed by each American. But it gets far worse if you add in all the unfunded liabilities of the government: Then it’s $1.2 million owed per American.” Yes, kids, those Nordic welfare-staters run their finances better than the nation that gave the world Wall Street.

Part of the reason that Norway has the largest sovereign wealth fund in the world (bigger than any of those belonging to Arab states even) is that the Norwegians don’t give away their natural resources at fire sale prices. Another reason is that they treat the income as belonging to all Norwegians, including those who aren’t even born yet, so they invest it “for eternity.”

Compare the way the Norwegians deal with their oil with the way Americans deal with oil and gas on federal lands. Larry Persily of the Office of the Federal Coordinator For Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Projects wrote, “Norway makes all of its money by taxing the producers’ profit — plus taking a substantial equity share in many projects, plus earning stock dividends from a government-controlled oil and gas company.”

The tax is 28% on profits (the national corporate tax) and an extra 50% on profits from offshore oil and gas. And the oil companies still make money. Statoil, the national oil company, is 67% government owned and it operates 80% of the production in Norway in partnership with the likes of Exxon and BP. Outside Norway, it has operations in about three dozen countries. All of the taxes and all of the dividends from the government’s share of Statoil goes into the fund.

In America, we charge for the drilling rights and take a royalty from every barrel that comes out of federal land. The opening bid to lease an acre of federal land, worth thousands in competitive bidding situations, is $2. That isn’t a typo. You can get the rights to drill for oil on federal land for 200 pennies. Leah McGrath Goodman wrote in Newsweek last fall, “Oil and gas majors pay a royalty rate of 12.5 percent, based on sales of what they drill and produce. Offshore, that is slightly higher, 18.75 percent, hiked in 2007 from the 12.5 percent rate set in the 1920s. (The higher, offshore rate reflects only leases granted since 2007, which means most of the money paid to Uncle Sam comes under the older, lower rate.)”

To be clear here, we aren’t talking about resources on private land, where the landowner has the mineral rights and such. This is nationally owned land (or off-shore continental shelf) that belongs, in both countries, to the government, or if you will, to the taxpayer. Norwegians get a decent price for the resources that they all own. Americans let themselves get screwed because the government doesn’t want a fight with Big Oil.

Once the Oslo government has the money, though, they don’t hand it out to the taxpayers for new fishing boats or vacations in warmer climes. They invest it. Bloomberg’s Pensions and Investments notes, “The fund, which had an average holding of 1.2% of the world’s publicly listed companies at the end of 2012, invests abroad to avoid stoking domestic inflation.” Read that again. The 5 million people in Norway make up just 0.07% of the Earth’s population, yet own 1.2% of the publicly listed companies. The oil and gas money doesn’t just belong to this generation; it belongs to the Norwegian people across the generations. Just 4% of the fund is released to the government for immediate spending.

Compare this to what the British did with their share of the North Sea’s oil and gas. There is no British Permanent Fund. Mrs. Thatcher and her successors used the money to fund their government budgets, privatized British Petroleum, and effectively handed over the birthright of every Briton to the oil companies.

And this is just oil and natural gas. America possesses other natural resources that we all own by virtue of the fact that we were born American citizens or were naturalized as such. There is coal, there is gold, there are geothermal resources, fisheries, the airwaves on which we broadcast TV and radio. They belong to us all, yet our government hands our property over to special interests at rock-bottom prices.

Norway’s sovereign wealth fund isn’t a silver-bullet solution to its financial issues. Indeed, there is now talk that perhaps it has grown too large to be effective. On the other hand, shouldn’t Americans get a decent price for what they own and shouldn’t future generations of Americans get a country at least as wealthy as the one we inherited? A sovereign wealth fund for America is an idea that is overdue.
