Peter Strzok’s wife Melissa Hodgman at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been targeting companies linked to China for criminal prosecutions, engendering accusations of racism against her.
Hodgman’s civil fraud prosecution of Japanese-American businessman William Uchimoto fell apart, prompting a lawsuit from Uchimoto against the SEC. Meanwhile, the SEC worked on a massive prosecution of Benjamin Wey, a Chinese-born American citizen and Wall Street financier, which likewise fell through. Wey is now alleging that NASDAQ lied to SEC authorities to bring about his prosecution.
Why are Hodgman and her colleagues at SEC waging legal warfare against Chinese-linked businessmen in a series of cases that are being disputed and discredited?
William Uchimoto’s company CleanTech, a wind and renewable energy company, filed suit in 2012 against NASDAQ for racial discrimination, claiming that Chinese companies were being discriminated against, according to a press release. Former senator Arlen Specter represented CleanTech at the time.
The fraud charges against Uchimoto were dismissed. Uchimoto remained understandably angry about the prosecution, stating, “They gerrymandered what they wanted to look at.”
ABA Journal reported: “A former BigLaw partner says the Securities and Exchange Commission went beyond overzealous enforcement when it filed a civil suit against him that was tossed on Monday by a federal judge. U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel in his opinion (PDF) dismissed civil securities fraud and aiding and abetting claims against William Uchimoto of Pennsylvania, the New York Law Journal (sub. req.) reports. Uchimoto is a former partner at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, at Saul Ewing and at Stevens & Lee. The SEC had alleged that Uchimoto misled Nasdaq about whether two companies had satisfied shareholder requirements to be listed on the exchange. He was a partner at Buchanan Ingersoll at the time of the alleged misrepresentation. Castel said the SEC complaint failed to allege that Uchimoto obtained money or property as a result of the alleged misrepresentation.”
Benjamin Wey likewise believes that he was wrongfully targeted by the SEC during Hodgman’s tenure at the enforcement agency, when Wey was prosecuted for fraud. The charges were recently dismissed.
Forbes reported: “Wall Street financier Benjamin Wey filed a civil lawsuit in New York Supreme Court against Nasdaq. He alleges that Nasdaq mislead federal authorities with false information that wrongly led to his prosecution. He is seeking $650 million in damages.”
On April 9, 2018, the SEC voluntarily dismissed fraud charges against Benjamin Wey, issuing a press release about the dismissal.
Heavy reported: “U.S. securities regulators…moved to drop their fraud case against Wall Street financier Benjamin Wey, about a month after prosecutors dropped a related criminal case after a judge threw out some evidence,” Reuters reported. According to Reuters, “The criminal case against Wey collapsed in June, when U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan ruled that a huge cache of materials seized from Wey’s home and offices could not be used because they were obtained with overly broad search warrants that violated Wey’s constitutional rights…The article continued, “Nathan said the seizure of items such as children’s school records, family photos and X-rays at minimum reflected ‘grossly negligent or reckless disregard’ of the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizure.”
Hodgman was eventually promoted at SEC by Barack Obama in 2016, shortly before the presidential election and in the midst of her husband’s Operation Crossfire Hurricane plot to target President Donald Trump and excuse Hillary Clinton of crimes.
Hodgman’s history raises serious questions about her credibility, and could open new avenues of information in the effort to expose the full scope of Peter Strzok’s dealings in the U.S. intelligence agencies. Are intelligence agencies coordinating with law enforcement on selective prosecutions?
Goldman Sachs Claims Forcing Americans to Wear Masks Would Save U.S. Economy $1 Trillion
Multinational corporations want Americans to submit to the virus regime.
Corporate titan Goldman Sachs has produced research that contends the U.S. economy would save five percent of GDP, or $1 trillion, due to a national mask mandate using federal force to make people wear masks.
“If a face mask mandate meaningfully lowers coronavirus infections, it could be valuable not only from a public health perspective but also from an economic perspective because it could substitute for renewed lockdowns that would otherwise hit GDP,” the researchers wrote.
Goldman’s analysts claim that forcing people to wear masks at the federal level would impact states like Florida and Texas, where masks are not mandatory, and “meaningfully” increase mask usage nationwide. Even though the mandate would be grossly unconstitutional, Goldman apparently believes that the ends justify the means.
They estimate that a mask mandate would increase mask usage overall by 15 percent and cut the daily growth of new coronavirus cases by between .6% and 1%. Goldman is fueling the false dichotomy where the public must to accept either a strict mask mandate or a Draconian shutdown of society. They claim that the next lockdown would take an additional $1 trillion out of the economy.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is attempting to unseat President Trump in November, has stated that he would use federal power to force Americans to wear masks.
“Yes, I would—from an executive standpoint, yes, I would . . . I would do everything possible to make it a requirement that people had to wear masks in public,” Biden mumbled last week.
The stage has been set for round two of the coronavirus panic to cripple society, even though the establishment has been encouraging Black Lives Matter pogroms against white people simultaneously.
Big League Politics has reported on the so-called experts as they have kept the fear propaganda going despite the immense hypocrisy:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are continuing their fear-mongering about the coronavirus pandemic, desperately trying to dissuade Americans from living their lives.
“Right now, communities are experiencing different levels of transmission occurring, as they gradually ease up onto the community mitigation efforts and gradually reopen,” the CDC’s deputy director for infectious diseases, Jay Butler, said to reporters during a press briefing on Friday.
“If cases begin to go up again, particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” he added.
Butler emphasized that the “pandemic is not over” and urged localities to re-institute Draconian shutdown policies based on “what is happening within the community regarding disease transmission.”
The CDC has displayed an extreme amount of incompetence throughout the pandemic, which has destroyed their credibility and made them into a national laughingstock.
The establishment will never allow normalcy to return. The Orwellian nightmare, enabled by COVID-19 hysteria, is here to stay.
