- Landmark civil rights legal records deleted from Pacer (BBC Aug 27, 2014):

Records of landmark US civil rights cases presided over by one of the country’s most senior judges have been removed from the internet.

The state-run Public Access to Court Electronic Records (Pacer) service deleted numerous court documents deemed incompatible with a software upgrade.

These included appeals heard by Justice Sonia Sotomayor prior to her appointment to the Supreme Court.

A famous racial discrimination case was among the expunged files.

Ricci v DeStefano, in which it was alleged that the race of Connecticut firefighters was taken into consideration when awarding promotions, was one of Justice Sotomayor’s most notable cases during her time on the Court of Appeals.

    Try and find the truth about the demise of the world reserve currency…..the source and the beginning was Hugo Chavez’s Sucre, the first electronic currency allowing member nations to trade with each other, leaving the dollar out.
    I found it as it was happening because as a historian, and one with some sense, I was searching for something like thing. I knew the US was up for some bad blowback for their insane invasions of countries that have done nothing to deserve it.
    If you search now, it has all been laundered. The truth is still the truth. Over half the world has dumped the dollar, and all the laundering won’t change that percentage will only grow very rapidly, especially with this US CIA ISIS Bullshit.
