JPMorgan Chase manipulating the gold and silver markets

A London-based precious-metals trader who had accused JPMorgan Chase of manipulating the gold and silver markets was involved in a bizarre weekend car accident that triggered a police chase before the suspect was nabbed.

Andrew Maguire, a metals trader at the London Bullion Market Association, and his wife were traveling in their car when a second car coming out of a side street struck their vehicle. That car then hit two more vehicles before fleeing.

London cops using helicopters and patrol cars chased the hit-and-run driver before nabbing that person, whose name has not been released by authorities.

Maguire and his wife were released from the hospital yesterday. London police would not comment on the accident investigation.

The hit and run occurred after Maguire’s name came to light Thursday during a US Commodities Futures Trading Commission hearing on limiting gold and silver positions held by large market participants in order to prevent manipulation.

During the hearing, Maguire was identified as having sent e-mails to Bart Chilton, a CFTC commissioner, and Eliud Ramirez, head of the commission’s enforcement division, alleging that JPMorgan had used its massive metals positions to manipulate the commodities markets.

In one e-mail, Maguire wrote, “It is common knowledge here in London among the metals traders that it is JPM’s intent to flush out and cover as many shorts as possible prior to any discussion in March about position limits,” referring to last week’s CFTC hearings.

JPMorgan inherited the positions when it acquired Bear Stearns two years ago.

When the allegations first surfaced last week, JPMorgan declined to comment.

Attempted murder?

Maguire and his wife were involved in a bizarre car accident in London, the New York Post reported March 29.

Maguire told WND he reluctantly has come to believe the car accident was an attempt on his life.

“We got hit in the side at full acceleration and tried to corral the cars in a gas station, including the guy who hit us with a commercial vehicle,” Maguire explained.

The assailant then got in his car and accelerated, hitting a number of cars as he escaped from the gas station, making the event into a hit-and-run situation.

“The police told us the assailant was known to them and even that they arrested him,” Maguire said. “But recently the police won’t say anything, and I haven’t been able to learn anything about the assailant.”

    Once when he was older and I played it again, he told me that this music really freaked him out when he was little.

    I felt bad, but then I realized his bass playing sounds a lot like her bass player.

    Red, just checked the SSDI. I punch in the 042 number and it comes back and tells me ‘Nothing found’.

    The only ‘Obama’ I could find was:

    RENEE L ABENA OBAMA 31 Oct 2004 25 Dec 2004 (P) (72) (none specified) 215-XX-XXXX Maryland

    In other words Renee Obama was a baby – born in October and died in December of 2004 issued in Maryland and her number was 215-XX-XXXX

    Apparently the number from CT issued with a birth date of 1890 is still active as it is not yet showing in the death index. No way there is a 110 year old man walking around still using that number so we have IMO definite fraud. And not only that it looks like even the death index has been ‘fixed’ so the original record doesn’t pop up.

    Red, just checked the SSDI. I punch in the 042 number and it comes back and tells me ‘Nothing found’.

    I ran Obama’s CT number about 3 to 4 weeks ago on the selective service website and it came back with a hit reflecting the freedom of information released selective service document that Obama allegedly signed up in 1980.

    I read a poster yesterday who said that when they ran the Obama SS number they got a message saying ‘too many search requests by the user’ or something to that effect on the same selective service website.

    The word appears to be out to actively scrub Obama’s information again.

    Obama Connecticut Social Security number confirmed

    by Dr. Conspiracy on 18. May, 2010

    I’ve always thought that the “042-xx-xxxx” Social Security number reported on the Internet for Barack Obama was probably his real SSN, but lacked confirmation.

    Now we have it.

    OC Weekly reporter Spencer Kornhaber typed this number, along with the President’s name and date of birth, in to a Selective Service registration verification database and receive the confirmation.

    Transfer one item from the plausible to the factual column.

    However, I’ve never seen anything remotely plausible that suggests that President Obama ever used any other Social Security number.

    (Jerome Corsi reported Obama also has SS # from Hawaii.)

    Miami firefighters union wants court to defend its contract

    Miami’s firefighter union fights back against a city measure aimed at renegotiating its sweetener-laden contract.

    Commission Chairman Marc Sarnoff said he is hopeful the two sides can hammer out an agreement that would benefit firefighters and give the city some relief.

    “I hope everyone realizes the city is on the verge of bankruptcy. We have essentially used up our reserves,” Sarnoff said.

    While Miami isn’t quite bankrupt, its reserves have plunged from a high of $141 million in 2003 to $40 million today.

    And if projections are accurate, the city is staring at another deficit this budget year of close to $30 million.

    That could leave less than $10 million in reserve.

    The situation has become bleak enough that City Manager Carlos Migoya is contemplating the sale of some city assets to raise money.

    Like most major cities across the nation, Miami is reeling from a plunge in property tax revenues, coupled with a union pension that is choking the city’s checkbook.

    Reid Hints At A Workout For Cantwell’s Derivative Amendment

    I actually think that Reid will look to the path of least resistance, like getting Scott Brown to support cloture, rather than accommodate Cantwell.

  16. blessedistruth Says:

    Two Republicans — Maine Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe — voted with the Democrats.

    Republican Sen. Scott Brown had indicated he would vote with the Democrats.

    But when the vote came, he sided with his party.

    Brown told reporters that the bill did not include fixes he sought to protect Massachusetts insurance firms and banks that hold money in trust from a prohibition on commercial banks engaging in trades on their own accounts.

    The changes Brown sought had been blocked by Republicans.

    “I don’t care who blocked it. I had assurances that these things were being addressed,” he said.

    He left the door open to changing his vote Thursday. “I’m confident that something will be resolved.”

  17. blessedistruth Says:

    But Reid and other Democrats hoped Senator Maria Cantwell would decide to support the bill after she was allowed to discuss her proposal to tighten derivatives regulation.

    Cantwell “may be willing to switch her vote if she can get consideration of an amendment that would require all standardized swaps to be cleared.”

    Republican Scott Brown also was viewed as a potential supporter.

    Brown had previously said he would support the bill, according to Democrats, but voted against it on Wednesday because it did not include certain unnamed provisions.

  18. blessedistruth Says:

    Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin said Thursday that Democrats now have the 60 votes needed to end debate on the financial reform bill.

    “We feel that we’re at 60, fingers crossed, but you’re never certain,” the Illinois Democrat said of the 2:30 p.m. procedural vote.

  19. blessedistruth Says:

    Democrats predicted they would have the support of Sens. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Scott Brown (R-Mass.), both of whom voted against a motion to cut off debate on Wednesday.

  20. blessedistruth Says:

    Well, if this is true. Reid will still need to get to 60 on any conference report.

    Unless Pelosi can get House Dems to rubberstamp Senate bill.

    My take, while I’ve been disappointed in both Dan and Marcia of late, I have to remind myself that they’re mere human beings, like me.

    And I appreciate them both, in spite of my misgivings.

    What I think really doesn’t matter.

    What matters is disclosure.

    Once when I posted a video about Dr Greer, Dan commented that he would appreciate Dr Greer more if he’d actually achieved disclosure.

    Well, I appreciate them both, and so many others who are zealous in their desire to uncover the truth.

    Questions Over Alleged Obama Funds For Kenya Vote

    Allegations by Kenyan churches that the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama is funding the government-backed “yes” campaign for a constitutional referendum in the East African country are being raised by American lawmakers.

    In a letter to inspectors general of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the U.S. Government Accountability Office, legislators Chris Smith of New Jersey, Darrell Issa of California and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida have outlined their concerns.

    The three U.S. legislators are calling for a probe into the issue, Kenya’s Star daily newspaper reported on 16 May.

    The report follows two week of allegations by Kenya’s churches, which are advocating a “no” vote in the referendum scheduled for 4 August.

    Kenya’s churches say the draft law opens the door to the legalisation of abortion and also back the provision of special Islamic courts.

    Were there any Dems who did NOT stand up?

    Were there any Repubs who did?

    I’d like to see every member of Congress who stood with Calderon have to defend their action.

    Some on the right are being dismissive about this.

    Oh, they’re just catering to the Hispanic vote.

    Sometimes wrong is just wrong.

    I hope Obama’s approval numbers get even worse than they already are.
