The World Below / Fearful of ban, buyers swarm gun stores
« on: December 29, 2012, 01:33:41 PM »

Buyers anticipating new limits on gun sales swarm dealers
Some manufacturers say it will take months to fill orders

 NEW YORK (AP) — The phones at Red's Trading Post wouldn't stop ringing. Would-be customers from as far away as New York wanted to know if the Twin Falls, Idaho gun shop had firearms in stock. Others clamored to find out if their orders had been shipped.

Overwhelmed, manager Ryan Horsley had to do what no employee would think of doing just days before Christmas: He disconnected the phone lines for three days.

"We had to shut everything off," says Horsley, whose family has owned Red's Trading Post, the state's oldest gun shop, since 1936. "We were swamped in the store and online."

Phones at gun shops across the country are ringing off the hook.

Demand for firearms, ammunition and bulletproof gear has surged since the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 20 schoolchildren and six teachers and administrators. The shooting sparked calls for tighter gun control, especially for military-style assault weapons like the ones used in Newtown and in the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting earlier this year.

The prospect of a weapons ban has sparked buying at stores and gun dealers nationwide.

Assault rifles are sold out across the country. Rounds of .223 bullets, like those used in the AR-15 type Bushmaster rifle used in Newtown, are scarce. Stores are struggling to restock. Gun and ammunition makers are telling retailers they will have to wait months to get more.

Store owners who have been in the business for years say they have never seen demand like this.

Asked how much sales have increased in the past few weeks, Horsley just laughed.

"We haven't even had a chance to look at it," he says. Horsley spends his days calling manufacturers trying to buy more items for the store. Mainly, they tell him he has to wait.

Franklin Armory, a firearms maker in Morgan Hill, Calif., is telling dealers it will take six months to fill their orders. The company plans to hire more workers and buy more machines to catch up, says Franklin Armory's President Jay Jacobson.

The shortage is leaving many would-be gun owners empty handed.

William Kotis went to a gun show in Winston-Salem, N.C., last weekend hoping to buy a rifle for target shooting. Almost everything was sold out.

"Assault rifles were selling like crazy," says Kotis, who is president and CEO of Kotis Holdings, a real estate development company based in Greensboro. "People are stockpiling."

He left without buying anything.

Luke Orlando's parents were able to get him the 12-gauge shotgun he wanted for Christmas to hunt birds, but his uncle wasn't as lucky.

"At Christmas dinner, my uncle expressed outrage that after waiting six months to use his Christmas bonus to purchase an AR-15, they are sold out and back ordered over a year," says Orlando, 18, a student at the University of Texas.

No organization publicly releases gun sales data. The only way to measure demand is by the number of background checks conducted when someone wants to buy a firearm. Those numbers are released by the FBI every month. Data for December is not out yet. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation says it did 16.8 million firearm background checks as of the end of November, up more than 2% from a year ago.

In November, it did more than 2 million, up from 1.5 million in November 2011.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation, which handles background checks for the state, can't keep up with the number of requests. The bureau has pulled staff from other units and increased its hours, says spokesperson Susan Medina.

Many firearm dealers and manufacturers say President Obama's comments since the Newtown school shooting are driving demand.

James Zimmerman of, a website that sells guns, ammunition and knives, says sales took off Dec. 19 after President Obama held a White House press conference announcing that Vice President Joe Biden would lead a team tasked with coming up with "concrete proposals" to curb gun violence.

That day, one customer ordered 32,000 rounds of ammunition from, worth close to $18,000. The order had to be shipped from the company's Lolo, Mont., office to Kentucky on a truck.

"I've done more sales in the week after the 19th than I have the whole year," says Zimmerman, who launched in 2009.

At Lady Liberty Gunsmithing in Atlantic City, N.J., a customer called last week asking if a pistol he wanted was available. When he was told there was only one left, he drove more than two hours from Newark, N.J., to buy it that same day.

"People want guns now even more than ever," says Guy Petinga II, whose father opened the store above his home in 1996.

After the Newtown shooting, Bullet Blocker, which makes bulletproof vests, briefcases and insert panels, saw sales of its children's backpacks suddenly jump.

"That's how I found out about the tragedy. I saw the sales rise and then turned on CNN," says Elmar Uy, vice president of business operations at the Billerica, Mass., company.

Bullet Blocker has sold 50 to 100 bulletproof backpacks a day since the shooting, up from about 10 to 15 in a regular week. The children's backpacks, which are designed to be used as shields, cost over $200 each.

"I've never seen numbers like this before," says Uy.


George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer facing second-degree murder charges for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, is being sued by an Orlando private company claiming they are owed $27,000 for private security services.

The Miami Herald reports that Associated Investigative Services Inc. filed suit against Zimmerman and his attorney, Mark O'Mara, for failing to pay in full a $66,000 security bill for 21 days of protection —about $3,100 dollars a day— even though Zimmerman was still in Seminole County Jail during seven of those days.

The security team helped plan Zimmerman's exit of the Seminole County Jail, outfitting the defendant with concealed body armor while protecting him with an armed guard. He drove off in a rental vehicle that was checked for any secretly placed GPS tracking devices, the Herald said.

The team planned the "jail escort plan" that eventually had Zimmerman dressing in disguise and changing vehicles on his way to a safe house.

Zimmerman's lawyer, O'Mara, claimed last week he paid the company $40,000 and that the charges were exorbitant and that he never signed a contract, according to the Herald.

The attorney representing the security company, Stephen Milbrath, says Zimmerman and O'Mara are bound by an oral contract.
The Trayvon Martin shooting caused national outrage and raised racial tensions at rallies across the country who believed the shooting death of the teenager was unjustified. Zimmerman has said the shooting was in self-defense.
The suit says the private company put together a plan that included a seven-member team of bodyguards that would watch over Zimmerman, his wife, other family members, and even O'Mara himself.

It is unclear whether the plan was fully carried out, the newspaper noted.
Zimmerman is currently under private security protection provided by another company at the cost of $700 a week, O'Mara said.

General / Jewish media paints George Zimmerman as the victim
« on: December 26, 2012, 12:06:05 PM »
It appears Zimmerman is no longer Jewish, but now he is a spanish negro


Summary:  --- Zimmerman is no longer a Jewish killer that was on amphetamines and killed a negro boy. His past of assaulting cops and beating women seems to be a footnote. His Jewish judge father meeting with the Jewish DA that night is history. Now we learn that Jorge Zimmerman is a Negro-Hispanic, a god fearing man, who sold insurance, and was attacked by a vicious nigger.

MIAMI -- The last time she was on TV with her face obscured by shadows, George Zimmerman’s mother explained, that her son’s roots are Afro-Peruvian.

In the 10 months since her teenage son was killed, Trayvon Martin’s mom became a nationally known activist who mostly sleeps in hotels as she bounces from one speaking engagement to another talking about self-defense laws.
“As a mother, this is a job,” said Sybrina Fulton, whose son Trayvon became a household name after Zimmerman shot and killed him in a townhouse complex in Sanford. “It is a position I never wanted.”
Both women want to set the record straight about their sons. Each blames the other’s boy for the tragedy. One lives in hiding; the other spent the year under the glare of cameras.

Their deep divide on the killing that rattled America underscores the sharp contrasts that mark the case that became one of the highest profile news events of 2012. Hundreds of thousands of people, from Seattle to Miami, Sanford to Manhattan, took to the streets to demand an arrest in the weeks following the Feb. 26 death of a black teenager at the hands of a Hispanic neighborhood-watch volunteer.

But when the clamor became so thunderous that Zimmerman finally found himself in handcuffs, so many people took such pity on the gunman that they gave him more than $200,000 in less than a month.
Even now, after the nation’s news channels have moved on to other tragedies and the story that rocked the country fell off the front pages, both families are preparing for a murder trial that promises to reopen wounds and spark fears of civil unrest. As lawyers prepare for 2013’s trial of the year, both Sanford and Miami have launched community relations projects. In Miami, civic leaders are clearly worried about reactions to the trial’s outcome.

A case that started with the killing of an unidentified teen wound up raising the national conscience on issues of gun control, racial profiling, self-defense law and police bias. Zimmerman’s family decries a media frenzy they believe distorted truth and justice. The Martins look back at a national scandal and feel pride.

“It was about to be swept under the rug, and I’m proud that it got thrust into national attention,” said Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father. “It’s not just about Trayvon; it’s about all our kids.”
He remembers a rally where his son’s photo was posted alongside Martin Luther King’s. Fulton reminded him of the caption: “Two Martins, Gone Too Soon.”

“That picture sticks in my head,” he said. “It blows our minds that our seed was in the same namesake as Martin Luther King.”
Martin, a South Florida-area truck driver, had taken his son up to Sanford, a racially diverse community north of Orlando , to ride out a 10-day school suspension. Trayvon had been caught at Michael Krop High in North Miami-Dade with a small plastic bag containing marijuana residue. Suspended for the third time, the teen went to cool his heels at the Central Florida townhouse complex where his father’s girlfriend lived.
With his dad out for the evening, Trayvon went to the store for snacks. On his way back from 7-Eleven, he encountered George Zimmerman, an affable, exceedingly polite neighborhood watch volunteer who was in the insurance business and had a habit of calling police whenever he saw something awry.

Zimmerman had a license to carry a concealed weapon, a firearm he has said he carried everywhere except work. He says he was on his way to Target when he spotted someone lurking around in the rain looking in windows. After a series of burglaries at the Retreat at Twin Lakes neighborhood, Zimmerman did what he had done several times before when he spotted black men he did not recognize.

He called the police. And, in a move that is likely to play a big role in the prosecution of his case, Zimmerman also got out of his car. The dispatcher advised against it.

He says it was to provide the police with an address. His detractors say it was to hunt down a black teen in a hoodie.
The girl Trayvon was talking to on the phone in the minutes leading up to his death said Trayvon was scared because a creepy guy was following him. She told him to run.

Minutes later, the teenager was dead, and Zimmerman’s life was about to be upended.

“After enduring a prolonged physical attack from Trayvon Martin, screaming for help countless times and receiving no help, and all the while in fear for my life, I shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense,” Zimmerman wrote in a recent statement posted on his website. “I did not shoot to take his life, I shot to save my own.”

Indeed, a photo taken at the scene showed Zimmerman with a swollen bloody nose. Did Trayvon deck Zimmerman for no reason? Or did the skinny high school student defend himself against a shorter but stockier gunman who chased him?
“In the days and weeks following the shooting, a story was promoted that I am a racist and a murderer,” Zimmerman wrote. “These untruths spread through the community, the government, and the nation, amplified by a media frenzy seeking ratings over truth.”

So adamant is he about the media’s manipulation of the story that this month Zimmerman sued NBC for editing his call to police in a way that made it appear as if his suspicion of the teenager was based largely on race.
Zimmerman has this on his side: Sanford police apparently believed him. Although records show a detective recommended a manslaughter charge, lawyers have listed detectives to testify — for the defense.
“That’s not me hot-dogging it,” defense lawyer Mark O’Mara said. “That’s because the cops say things I want them to say.”
While some residents who were there that night blasted the police for a shoddy investigation, others said they saw Trayvon straddling Zimmerman as the two struggled on the ground. One man said the teenager was hitting Zimmerman “MMA-style.”
“Mixed martial arts. I had never seen that sport, but I saw it on YouTube and was amazed at the savage manner they beat people,” Zimmerman’s mother, Gladys, told Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos in a recent interview.
She said none of it would have happened had Trayvon not attacked her son so savagely.
“George is not a racist. My family is not racist,” she insisted, while speaking with her face obscured. “My children know their roots, and my roots are not white.”

The family fled its Lake Mary home in the face of what they said were repeated death threats. One of them arrived on a neighbor’s answering machine.

“They said, ‘This message is for your neighbor Gladys Zimmerman. You can tell her I’ll be waiting for her by her post office box where I will slit her throat,’” recalled Jeff Peterson, a neighbor on their Lake Mary street. “This thing changed everybody’s life in this neighborhood, and George didn’t even live here.”

« Previous |Page 3 of 3
Peterson described Zimmerman as mature, friendly and helpful to his neighbors.
A former Seminole State College criminal justice student, Zimmerman was raised in Virginia and moved to Central Florida after high school. He lived alone in his parents’ house for several years until his parents retired and joined him in Florida .
He is married to Shellie, a nursing student. His father, Robert Sr., is a retired magistrate, which many critics believe was a chief reason that Zimmerman was afforded the benefit of the doubt by police.

But the Zimmermans blame the frenzy on Martin family lawyers, who brought in national civil-rights leaders and ignored the fact that their son is Hispanic.

“There was a creation of a racial narrative, because basing the story on the merits of the crime was not sufficiently sensational to those who wanted to report more,” Zimmerman’s brother Robert told Univision. “Racism is a lucrative sport. Many people have their hands in a money bag, and there’s a lot of money to be made."
Much of that criticism has been aimed at Trayvon’s parents, who have collected donations for an advocacy foundation they created in their son’s name.

The Zimmermans focus much of their ire on Benjamin Crump, the civil rights attorney whose constant media exposure forced law enforcement to take a second look at the case. Crump, who has filed a claim with the homeowners association where Zimmerman served as crime watch coordinator, has yet to bill in the case. Neither has Zimmerman’s defense team.
Crump thinks back on the furor, the day marchers shut down Broadway, the rallies in Sanford, the dozens of Miami-Dade schools where students walked out in protest, and feels no regret. He said history has shown that when blacks are killed by whites, particularly whites acting in a law-enforcement capacity, the only way to get a case going is by turning to the media.
In the months since Trayvon’s death, Crump has taken on at least three more similar cases.
“Little brown boys and little brown girls get killed and nobody cares until we make a fuss,” Crump said. “They were so comfortable sweeping it under the rug like they didn’t matter.”
Crump said people often ask whether, after so much publicity, Zimmerman can get a fair trial.
“In my mind, the question is, can a little black boy get murdered in the south and get justice?” Crump said. “Can Trayvon get justice?”

Although Sanford’s police chief publicly said there was not enough evidence to file charges, Gov. Rick Scott appointed a special prosecutor from Duval County , who filed a second-degree murder charge. The Sanford police chief was fired.
A trial is scheduled for June 10, and a self-defense immunity hearing will be held in the spring. At that hearing the judge will decide whether to throw out the case and offer Zimmerman immunity from both civil suits and criminal prosecution.
“My guy is innocent and the evidence strongly supports that,” O’Mara said in an interview earlier this month. “Someone should drop $1 million in his defense fund account so he can get a real defense. He’s been put through the wringer.”
For their activism, Trayvon’s parents were skewered by right-wing bloggers, who tried to embarrass them by revealing personal information and photos. Trayvon’s profanity-laced social media comments were picked over and scrutinized, and the parents were criticized for releasing angelic-looking photos of a teenager whose Twitter profile showed teeth covered by a removable gold grill.

“People try to say I did all this for money. I go to work every day. We have been hard-working people for 30 years. I have never even claimed unemployment,” Martin said. “The thing that gets me is that they [the Zimmermans] talk about how they are living like hermits.

“How do they think we’re living? Our son is dead.”
As for Zimmerman living in fear, don’t look to Trayvon’s parents for sympathy.
“He took that on,” Martin said. “I don’t feel sorry for him.”
Fulton said it still hurts when she hears negative things said about her son. She wishes she had talked more about his personality, how he liked going skating, talking to girls on the phone and how he practically lived at Forzano Park in Miramar . That’s where he played football and worked in the concession stand.
“They want us to be quiet and walk away,” Fulton said.
“I want the legacy of Trayvon Martin to stand for something, so no other families go through what we did.”

Django Unchained is a negro slave getting justice

er Gettell
December 26, 2012, 7:59 a.m.
With "Django Unchained," writer-director Quentin Tarantino has once again turned history on its head to carry out an audacious revenge fantasy. Whereas "Inglourious Basterds" imagined retribution against Hitler and the Nazis, "Django Unchained" — a Southern-fried take on the spaghetti Western — sets its sights on antebellum slaveholders.

As might be expected of Tarantino, the resulting film is bloody and profane — and according to many critics, quite effective.

The Times' own Betsy Sharkey writes that "Django" is Tarantino's "most articulate, intriguing, provoking, appalling, hilarious, exhilarating, scathing and downright entertaining film yet." The director, Sharkey says, "has never seemed more comfortable in the saddle."

PHOTOS: 'Django Unchained' - Quentin Tarantino, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz

Sharkey also commends supporting actors Christoph Waltz, who plays the German bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (one of the good guys), and Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays the plantation owner Calvin Candie (a very bad guy). Sharkey's only real gripe is that Tarantino can't bear to wrap things up, and so the film runs long: "there are a couple of spots when you are sure you've just witnessed a bang-up ending only to find Tarantino setting things up for another round."

Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle gives the film a rave review, and in fact finds the length just right. "'Django Unchained' is the most consistently entertaining movie of 2012," he writes. "It's 165 minutes long and shouldn't be a minute shorter, a film of surprises, both in story and in casting, and of moments of agonizing, teased-out tension."

Tarantino, LaSalle says, "has found that elusive spot that all artists strive for, complete spontaneity and absolute control."

"Django Unchained" also seems to have made an impression on the Boston Globe's Wesley Morris, who writes, "I’ve never seen anything like this movie, not in one 165-minute sitting, not from a single director, not made with this much conscientious bravado and unrelenting tastelessness — this much exclamatory kitsch — on a subject as loaded, gruesome, and dishonorable as American slavery."

Amid all the pyrotechnics and bloodshed — the movie is "absurdly violent" — Morris says Jamie Foxx pulls off the difficult lead role, an ex-slave trying to rescue his wife: "Django is the moral and emotional core of this movie, the human force that keeps the whole thing from sliding into kitsch."

Stephanie Zacharek, writing for NPR, says the film is "by turns exhilarating, hilarious, horrifying and poetic." She adds, "[Tarantino's] aim, it seems, is to both provoke and delight — he's firing on all cylinders here. The picture is a rousing good time, but there are strong threads of anger in it too. Like the Spaghetti Westerns and '70s blaxploitation pictures from which it takes its cues, it's a form of kicking and screaming against social injustice."

The New York Times' A.O. Scott also finds "Django Unchained" to be both rollicking and thought-provoking. He writes, "It is digressive, jokey, giddily brutal and ferociously profane. But it is also a troubling and important movie about slavery and racism."
The film, Scott says, contains "Tarantino’s trademark dialogue-heavy, suspense-filled set pieces" as well as "moments of pure silliness." But there's more: "When you wipe away the blood and the anarchic humor, what you see in 'Django Unchained' is moral disgust with slavery, instinctive sympathy for the underdog and an affirmation (in the relationship between Django and Schultz) of what used to be called brotherhood."

The reviews haven't been unanimously positive, however. Slate's Dana Stevens writes that the film "provoked a lot of contradictory feelings in me, including some that don’t usually come in pairs: Hilarity and boredom. Aesthetic delight and physical nausea. Fist-pumping righteousness and vague moral unease."

She adds, "Tarantino’s intent may have been to showcase the horrors of slavery, but there’s something about his directorial delectation in all these acts of racial violence that left me not just physically but morally queasy."


Sandy Hook / Adam Lanza's brother says "I am a victim"
« on: December 23, 2012, 10:42:07 AM »
The brother of the school killer

Adam Lanza's brother has taken to Facebook to mourn the 27 people--including his mother and 20 schoolchildren--killed by Adam in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, before the younger Lanza turned the gun on himself.

"I am a victim," Ryan Lanza told the New York Post via Facebook on Saturday. "I [lost] my mom and brother."
The 24-year-old, who lives in Hoboken, N.J., was initially misidentified by several media outlets as a suspect on the day of the shootings. He was questioned by police and later released.
When another Facebook user wrote that Adam deserved to "rot in hell," Ryan responded: “You have no right to call my brother names when he isn’t here no more. Just let my brother rest in peace. Please. Respect that."

Ryan also posted a photo of his mother, Nancy, who was shot and killed by Adam in their Newtown home before the troubled 20-year-old fired his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School, killing 20 children and 6 adults.

“You all will be truly be missed,” Ryan wrote on Facebook. “God Bless.”
Ryan Lanza's Facebook profile is private, though at least dozen pages have been launched supporting him in the wake of the massacre.

"The real shooter was his brother," a message on one of them reads. "Please stop blaming him for the shooting. He had nothing to do with it."

Holocaust Survivor Rescued After Katrina


 Helped In Dallas by Claims Conference-Funded Program
« back to Allocations-North America
Joseph Sher, 89 and a Holocaust survivor (pictured with his granddaughter Rose), was trapped in his New Orleans apartment for four days after Hurricane Katrina. Without electricity, drinking water, or a viable way to leave the flooded neighborhood, Mr. Sher once again faced a situation where he did not know whether he would survive. There was 5 feet of water in his building, less than in many areas but still enough to keep the residents trapped inside.
He is now with his son in Dallas, Texas, and is receiving assistance from the Jewish Family Service of Greater Dallas’ Services to Holocaust Survivors Program, which is funded by the Claims Conference.

Mr. Sher’s other son, who lives in New Orleans, had left before the storm to take his daughter to college in Philadelphia. Mr. Sher decided to stay in his apartment during the storm rather than take shelter in the New Orleans Superdome, where he imagined the crowding and spartan conditions would have been too reminiscent of the numerous labor camps he survived during World War II.

Mr. Sher rents out four apartments in his building, where he waited with three tenants to be rescued. On the Thursday after the storm, they were taken to dry ground one by one by a man passing by in a boat. One of Mr. Sher’s tenants then drove them to Baton Rouge, where his son Martin eventually located him and brought him back to Dallas.

"He doesn’t know how he survived, not knowing when someone was ever going to come by," Martin Sher said. "To him, it’s like war-torn Europe." Once again, Mr. Sher had to flee danger, becoming a refugee with no possessions and living with uncertainty about their homes and loved ones. This time, however, he has a loving, supportive family to take care of him and community resources to assist him.

Jewish Family Services in Dallas has provided Mr. Sher with prescriptions for medication, clothes, and offers of psychological assistance. Martin Sher praised the agency’s services to Holocaust survivors, citing the increased need for assistance as they age.

Mr. Sher, originally from Poland, also received a payment from the Claims Conference Program for Former Slave and Forced Laborers, and receives an Article 2 Fund pension from the Claims Conference.

The Claims Conference has set aside additional funds to assist Holocaust survivors victimized by Katrina, should they be needed. Hurricane aid to Holocaust survivors is funded by the Claims Conference Emergency Assistance Program, and grants from the Swiss Banks Settlement that are administered by the Claims Conference.

Agencies in Texas are accepting donations for hurricane relief:

General / Floridia retirees receive nice holocaust checks
« on: October 28, 2012, 08:42:00 AM »

By Donna Gehrke-White, Sun Sentinel
5:28 p.m. EDT, October 27, 2012
Octogenarian Bernie Yeger is finally getting a regular check — about $450 a month — for the labor the Nazis forced him to do almost 70 years ago.

It's taken decades for Yeger to get the pension that the German government is paying him for the free work he performed in a Romanian ghetto, before he was shipped off to do slave labor at Auschwitz, Buna and Buchenwald concentration camps.

"Why they refused me before I don't know," said Yeger, 85, of Pompano Beach who once was imprisoned with Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel, another teenage Romanian Jew rounded up by the Nazis.

But Fort Lauderdale attorney Steven Marcus is on a pro-bono mission to help Yeger and other elderly South Florida Holocaust survivors.

He has teamed up the Jewish Family Service of Broward that has assisted nearly 600 survivors since last year with their paperwork to apply for the German funds. The agency thinks there may be even more Holocaust victims who haven't gotten reparation, said Desiree Whitehead, Jewish Family public relations and marketing manager.

 "When you think of the persecution endured by the survivors [during World War II], it's unimaginable," Marcus said. Now the survivors are in their 80s and 90s — with many needing the extra money to lift them above poverty, he said.

In fact, one of his clients was about 90 when he asked Marcus for help. The Hallandale man, who had spent years working in a Polish ghetto and then hiding in a forest during the Nazi occupation, had resisted applying for German pensions. "He wanted nothing to do with the Germans," Marcus said. But as he got older, he needed money as his savings dwindled. So Marcus applied for him — and got a $650 monthly pension.

So far, Marcus, a shareholder with the Fowler White Boggs law firm, has donated about 250 hours to win pensions for 11 survivors in the last two years. The pensions have ranged from $185 to $1,400 a month. Marcus said. A dozen other applications are pending and two are on appeal after German authorities turned them down for not fitting the criteria to win a pension, Marcus said.

He has to have a volunteer translate the German government's response to his petitions as officials write to him in German — often scores of pages containing complicated mathematical formulas.

"The whole process can be lengthy," Marcus said.

About 20,000 Holocaust survivors, their spouses or descendants in Florida now get some sort of German pension, said Ulrike Kochalski, the German vice-consul in Miami. Florida is second only to New York in receiving the most Holocaust-related German pensions, she said. Most of those receiving the funds in Florida probably live in Broward, Palm Beach or Miami-Dade counties, she estimates. But she doesn't know for sure as the survivors' money is wired into bank accounts.

The state's Chief Financial Officer, Jeff Atwater, has convinced about two dozen banks to waive their usual $10 to $40 wire transfer fee to help the Holocaust survivors, said press secretary Anna A. Alexopoulos. "We felt really strongly," she said. "A lot of these Holocaust survivors are living below the federal poverty level."

In Fort Lauderdale, Marcus is helping survivors file for the so-called "Ghetto pensions" that require survivors to have worked at least six months in a German-controlled ghetto during World War II and spent a total of 60 months under German domination, in hiding — or in Displaced Persons Camps after the war. A German court decision made it easier for survivors to win the pensions, Marcus said.

But they have to have been working in the ghetto," Marcus said. "The youngest — at 11 or 12 — could have been working."

One of his youngest clients is a Margate woman who was only about 11 when she starting sorting shoes and clothes of deceased Jews in a Hungarian ghetto to be sent in trucks to Germany, the attorney said.

"Before she met me she had trouble getting the German government to give her credit for her time in the ghetto," he said. "But we were able to craft an argument."

The Germans approved her application last June and is giving her $185 a month. "That's the lowest amount," Marcus said, of any pension he has obtained for his clients — probably because she spent the shortest time in the ghetto before she was shipped out to work at concentration camps.

As a teenager, Yeger was cleaning, lifting and doing other chores in the ghetto where his family and other Jews were forced to stay. "Whatever had to be done," Yeger said. He was forced out of school as Jews were forbidden to attend.

At 17, he was shipped to Auschwitz along with his brother, who was three years older.

"He worked in the coal mines," Yeger said.

General / Jimmy Savile sex scandal is up to 300 children attacked
« on: October 27, 2012, 05:56:17 AM »

LONDON — The scale of the child sex abuse scandal engulfing the BBC expanded on Thursday as authorities announced that 300 potential victims had come forward with accusations  against one of the broadcaster’s most popular children’s entertainers and that others might have acted with him.

The scandal swirling around one of Britain’s most respected news organizations also prompted a spirited defense from New York Times chairman and publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. of the paper’s incoming CEO, the former top executive of the BBC.


Weigh In Corrections? Recommend Tweet Personal Post
In a letter to staff, Sulzberger said he was satisfied that Mark Thompson, who was the BBC’s director general until last month, had no role in the decision to scrap an investigative segment about the abuse allegations against the late Jimmy Savile.

The well-known children’s TV and radio host is accused of using his fame to coerce teens into having sex with him in his car, his camper and even in dressing rooms on BBC premises.Police Commander Peter Spindler, head of the Scotland Yard inquiry into the scandal, said Thursday that 300 potential victims had come forward so far and even more were expected to contact authorities. He said all but two of the cases involved girls and that detectives had interviewed 130 people.

The police commander acknowledged he had been stunned by the volume of abuse allegations reported to his team of 30 officers in the three weeks since accusations about Savile’s activities first came to public attention.

“It is quite staggering, the number of women ... and this is primarily women; we have only got two men in the system so far,” Spindler said.

Spindler said Savile, who died last October at age 84, was “undoubtedly” one of the worst sex offenders in recent British history.Since the allegations aired on British television this month, London police have received three times the usual number of calls about allegations of past sexual abuse. “I have no doubt that we are in a watershed moment for child abuse investigations,” Spindler said.

Previously feted for his charity work at hospitals and homes for children, Savile is alleged to have deliberately supported such causes to target troubled youths whose credibility would be questioned if they reported the alleged sexual abuse.

Spindler said that although the majority of cases related to Savile alone, some involved the entertainer and other, unidentified suspects. In addition, some potential victims who reported abuse by Savile also told police about separate allegations against unidentified men that did not involve the BBC host.

He confirmed that police could seek to prosecute any suspects who are still living but said no one has been arrested or questioned so far.

Spindler also revealed that a retired London police officer had contacted Scotland Yard to report that he investigated Savile in the 1980s after a young woman accused him of assaulting her inside his trailer while it was parked on BBC premises. The ex-officer said there hadn’t been sufficient evidence to prosecute Savile at the time, Spindler said.

Lindsey Boyd was 14 when Jewish porn peddlers took her topless photo

Joe Francis (Nee Jonathan Frankel) - Porn Magnate

ABC News' Amanda Keegan reports:

A Georgia woman who appeared topless in a "Girls Gone Wild" video when she was 14-years-old is suing the producers of the film, claiming the image was used commercially without her consent.

Lindsey Boyd - now a 26-year-old mother - was a minor 12 years ago when she says she was approached by two men with a video camera on a spring break trip to Florida offering her beads to expose her breasts. Boyd says she lifted her shirt and flashed them.

Those few seconds of video were later sold to the makers of "Girls Gone Wild," who released the video with her face plastered on the cover. Boyd said she never consented to the use of her image for commercial use and says she was exploited as a young teen.

After years of legal wrangling, Boyd's lawsuit against MRA Holding and Mantra Films will finally be heard Nov. 5 in Georgia's Supreme Court.

"[The cameramen] didn't have big equipment with them or 'Girls Gone Wild' t-shirts or anything," Boyd told ABC News affiliate WSB-TV on Oct. 3.

The image of the cover still haunts Boyd and says it ruined her life and reputation. Boyd says she found out about the video a few years later while in high school.

"Teachers knew about it, coaches knew about it. It was devastating. It was so embarrassing," Boyd said.

In 2004, she sued MRA Holding and Mantra Films, arguing her image was used for commercial purposes without her consent.

"She bared her breasts for some man, some men, and unbeknownst to her, she didn't dream that it would be used for in 'Girls Gone Wild,'" said Jeff Banks, Boyd's attorney.

The suit has been tied up in knots since 2004 moving between state and federal courts. The main issue for the delay is due to Georgia law, which isn't clear on whether she even has a case, according to lawyers.

"What the defendants are arguing is that she cannot later claim her right of privacy was somehow violated because she in fact consented to do this in a public arena," ABC News legal analyst Dana Cole said.

An attorney for MRA Holding and Mantra Films released a statement to ABC News, saying, "The defendants merely purchased the footage from an independent third party. Defendants believe the law is clear that Plaintiff does not have a legally cognizable claim."

Georgia's Supreme Court now has to decided if Boyd has the right to sue over a teenage mistake.

"A stupid split second decision you make could follow you for the rest of your life," Boyd said.

Oy Vey!! - Why us?

America, Jerry Sandusky may have just done the impossible. I honestly didn't think he could look any worse than he already does, did you? The former Penn State coach stands convicted of 45 counts of child abuse. That's 50 shades of disgusting piece of slime right there. But now that letters Jerry and wife Dottie wrote to the judge responsible for sentencing him are out, I sit corrected.

The things the Sanduskys said about the victims, the poor boys he violated, are downright despicable. Yup, Jerry Sandusky, world's most hated pedophile, comes off even scummier now than he did just a day or so ago.

According to the leaked Sandusky letters, the couple didn't beg for mercy for his sick, twisted soul. Instead they turned vicious, pointing fingers.

They blamed the media. They blamed the system. And then they got really dirty. They blamed the boys. They even blamed adopted son Matt, who has spoken out about alleged abuse by his "dad" but didn't testify in the court case that got Sandusky sent to prison.

With these kinds of details, I'm now more appalled that Sandusky wasn't sentenced to the 400 years he was facing. Sure, he's expected to die in prison with 30 to 60, but here's a man who had the audacity to refer to the children he molested as liars and ingrates, who told a judge:

Nobody mentioned the impact of abandonment, neglect, abuse, insecurity and conflicting messages that the biological parents might have had in this .In other words? Not only did he shift the blame, but Sandusky actually turned his guns on kids he himself admits were at a disadvantage, who were "weak" and should therefore be given an extra boost in this world.

I didn't think it was possible ... but I'm even angrier with this guy today than I was yesterday. How about you?

Do these Sandusky letters reignite your hatred of this guy? Or was it what you expected to hear?

Too bad they didn't indict 'Dottie Gross' (sandusky's yenta accomplice). The jew sandusky took children on vacations, and when he was ravaging the kids in the basement, old Dottie was listening. Eight yr old boys, jockey shorts to their ankles, and Sandusky was like a rabid dog on their young penises.

Homeland portrays all Muslims as evil suicide bombers

Though it’s been a runaway hit in the U.S., Lebanese officials aren’t happy with “Homeland.” A tourism minister told multiple media outlets this week that Lebanon is considering suing the Emmy-award-winning Showtime series because of its unflattering portrayal of Lebanon.

“This kind of film damages the image of Lebanon — it is not fair to us and it’s not true, it is not portraying reality,” Fadi Abboud told the Beirut-based Executive magazine. “We want to take action, we want to write to the filmmakers and producers and demand an apology. And we are planning to raise a lawsuit against the director and the producer.”

RELATED: ‘Homeland’ Stars on What’s to Come in Season Two

Abboud pointed to a recent “Homeland” episode that featured snipers on Hamra Street in West Beirut, which according to the Associated Press is a lively neighborhood filled with cafes, book stores and bars.

“It showed Hamra Street with militia roaming in it. This does not reflect reality,” he told the AP. “It was not filmed in Beirut and does not portray the real image of Beirut.” (Earlier today, a bomb explosion in central Beirut killed at least eight people and injured many others. There was no immediate indication of who was responsible for the blast.)

RELATED: Deadly Explosion Rocks Beirut

Another issue, for Lebanese critics, is that some of “Homeland’s” urban scenes are shot in Tel Aviv, Israel, which has had long simmering tensions with Lebanon. A Lebanese woman told the AP it’s “insulting” for Tel Aviv to stand in for Beirut, saying, “Israel destroyed our country. Israel invaded and occupied our country.” ”Homeland” is a takeoff on the Israeli series “Prisoners of War” and Gideon Raff, “Homeland’s” co-creator, is Israeli.A representative for Showtime declined to comment. A representative for “Homeland’s” executive producers, Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, did not respond to’s requests for comment.

General / Jewish professors awarded Nobel Prizes

Professor Alvin Roth

Professor Loydd Shapley


WASHINGTON -- A longtime professor at UCLA and an economist at Harvard were awarded the Nobel Prize in economics Monday for their work in matching theory and its practical applications in markets, such as how job seekers are matched with employers and patients find donors of human organs.
Alvin Roth, a professor at Harvard recently lured to Stanford University, and Lloyd Shapley of UCLA "have answered these questions on a journey from abstract theory on stable allocations to practical design of market institutions," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in announcing the prize.

"For example, students have to be matched with schools, and donors of human organs with patients in need of a transplant," the academy said. "How can such matching be accomplished as efficiently as possible? What methods are beneficial to what groups?"
Roth and Shapley worked independently of one another. The academy said the combination of Shapley's basic theory and Roth's practical investigations "has generated a flourishing field of research and improved the performance of many markets."

Nazi bastard shot down a Jewish War hero's bomber

This Jew ate maggot soup

Moishe claims to be Jimmy Stewarts sidekick

A German combat plane rammed the B-24 Abe Wilen was navigating on a World War II bombing run. And he bailed out to endure a year of starvation as a German prisoner of war and then a forced march through Germany as the war ended.

That was just the opening chapter of the Boca Raton resident's life, and he later spent more than 40 years running a furniture store and acting as a civic leader. Wilen, 91, died Friday at his Boca Raton home in his sleep following kidney and heart problems.

His story was recently preserved in the movie, "Shot Up & Shot Down," a story of three Boca Raton Jewish-American POWs the Germans captured. It was written and produced by Scott Messmore, of Boynton Beach and will be showing Nov. 8 at the Norton Art Museum, West Palm Beach.

"It's raining, snowing, hailing and we're standing in line to get the soup," Wilen says in the film. "There's worms in there, maggots in there, all dead. But we were so hungry, we ate them."

His grandson, Jeff Wilen of Cleveland, who grew up in Hollywood, said his paternal grandfather was "everything I would want in a role model."

"He was a business owner, president of the Chamber of Commerce, president of his synagogue and active in Rotary (Club) — something he passed down through the family," Wilen, 31, said.

He was also a part of organizing the yearly show of WW II war birds that arrive every January at Boca Raton Airport.

Filmmaker Messmore remembers that the former navigator was in the habit of carrying around in his wallet a picture of his bombing group's operations officer, actor Jimmy Stewart, famed for his roles in "It's a Wonderful Life," and "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." The two had reunited several times with others in their group, over the years."I was very fortunate to know him," Messmore said. "His generation saw their duty, got it done and we live in the world they built. You see this coming, but you're sad when it happens." or 561-243-6624

2012 / Taliban executes girls for attending school
« on: October 11, 2012, 07:24:26 AM »
She was shot for going to school

Summary: --- Jewish news reporters tell us the Taliban shoot girls who attend school. The Taliban hates educated women.

ESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - A Pakistani schoolgirl fighting for her life after being shot by Taliban gunmen was transferred on Thursday from a hospital in a province that is a militant haven to a specialist hospital in the army garrison town of Rawalpindi.

Malala Yousufzai, 14, was unconscious in critical condition after being shot in the head and neck as she left school on Tuesday, but doctors said she had moved her arms and legs slightly the night before.
Pakistani surgeons removed a bullet on Wednesday from Yousufzai who was shot by the Taliban for speaking out against the militants and promoting education for girls.
Her courage made her a national hero. The shooting has drawn condemnation from world leaders and many Pakistanis.

Yousufzai began standing up to the Pakistani Taliban when she was just 11, when the government had effectively ceded control of the Swat Valley where she lives to the militants.
Her father, Ziauddin Yousufzai, who runs a girls' school, said his daughter had defied threats for years, believing the good work she was doing for her community was her best protection.
A Reuters correspondent watched as she was moved from an army hospital in the regional capital of Peshawar to the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology in Rawalpindi to help her treatment.
"Pray for her," her distraught uncle, Faiz Mohammad, said before the ambulance left the hospital.
A husband-and-wife team of two British doctors who were attending a seminar in Pakistan at the time of the attack on Thursday joined local surgeons in treating Yousufzai.
She was shot with two other girls on Tuesday as she left school in Swat, northwest of Islamabad. One of the girls is out of danger and the other remains in critical condition.
A Taliban spokesman said she was targeted for trying to spread Western culture and that they would try to kill her again if she survived.
Authorities had identified her attackers, said regional governor Masood Kausar. The local government has posted a 10 million rupee reward for their capture.
"The security agencies are closely working with each other and they have a lot of information about the perpetrators. We hope our security agencies will soon capture them and bring to justice," he said.
The attack outraged many in Pakistan, with small, impromptu rallies held in her support in many cities. Schools had also closed across Swat in protest over the shooting and a small demonstration was held in her hometown of Mingora.

Pakistan's president, prime minister, and heads of various opposition parties joined human rights group Amnesty International and the United Nations in condemning the attack.

Israel Launches Airstrikes After Attacks From Gaza

 JERUSALEM — Gaza militants from Gaza fired a barrage of rockets and mortar shells into Israeli territory on Monday, causing no casualties but some property damage, after an Israeli airstrike in southern Gaza on Sunday killed one Palestinian and wounded at least nine others.

Israeli warplanes responded immediately, striking a number of rocket-launching squads as they fired toward Israel, according to the military, and hitting several facilities belonging to Hamas, the Islamic group that controls Gaza. The military said the sites were being used to store weapons.

Ashraf al-Qedra, a spokesman for the Health Ministry in Gaza, said that five Palestinians were injured in Monday’s strikes, one of them seriously.

The latest flare-up began with the missile strike on Sunday against two men Israel said were members of jihadist groups involved in terrorist activity against Israel. Some Palestinian news outlets identified them as radical Salafi militants. Gaza medical officials said that the two, who were struck while riding on a motorcycle, were critically wounded, and that one later died. They said that at least eight passers-by were also injured in the strike.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli military said that up to 30 mortar shells had fallen inside Israel on Monday morning, and the military said that a number of rockets also struck Israeli territory near the Gaza border.

The armed wings of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, a smaller militant group, claimed responsibility for the rocket and mortar fire, saying that they were aiming at Israeli military bases near the border.

A spokesman for the military wing of Hamas, known only by his nom de guerre, Abu Obeida, said that Monday’s attacks were meant as “a message” that “the Palestinian resistance will not allow unilateral aggression” from Israel. He warned of “stronger, expanded responses” if the Israeli raids continued.

Most of the rockets and mortars fell in uninhabited areas in Israel, but the military said that some buildings were damaged. Several goats were killed in a petting zoo in an Israeli communal farm near the border, according to the news Web site Ynet.

Israelis were marking the last day of the Sukkot holiday on Monday, and schools and offices were closed. Israelis near the Gaza border were advised to remain close to bomb shelters and protected areas. The Education Ministry in Gaza said that four schools in southeast Gaza were evacuated because of Israeli shelling.

"I walked down the street in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz ...   We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims.   In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent.   We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
These are the people we burned.
And under the pretence of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were  cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.   
They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.   Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.   We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.
What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe ..   
A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.   Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.   It is not removed as yet.   However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.
It is now more than sixty years after the Second World War in Europe ended.   This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain,  in memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated.'   Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth', it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

General / Jewish killer of negro child has DNA problems

George Zimmerman’s DNA problem

By Jonathan Capehart

George Zimmerman is in a bloody mess. The killer of Trayvon Martin claims that he was in a life-and-death struggle with the unarmed teenager. But DNA tests are not exactly bearing that out. Yes, they prove the two were in close proximity. One stain on the shirt that Trayvon wore underneath the hoodie was a DNA match to Zimmerman. But these tests raise more questions about (or poke more holes in) Zimmerman’s story.

Despite claims that Trayvon grabbed Zimmerman’s gun, Trayvon’s DNA was not found on the weapon or its holster. Despite claims that Trayvon pummeled Zimmerman in the face and the head, none of Zimmerman’s DNA was found on Trayvon’s hoodie. Not even on the cuffs or the sleeves.And then there are Zimmerman’s shirt and jacket.

There were 47 stains tested for the presence of blood on Zimmerman’s shirt and jacket. Of the 16 on his shirt, 14 “gave chemical indications for the presence of blood.” All matched Zimmerman’s DNA profile. Of the 31 stains tested on the jacket, 17 “gave chemical indications for the presence of blood.” Nine of the 17 matched Zimmerman’s DNA profile. The remaining eight are nothing short of curious.

George Zimmerman, in a photo provided by the Florida State Attorney’s Office on Feb. 27. (ASSOCIATED PRESS )
“Stain E” on the jacket showed the presence of “at least two individuals.” The major contributor was Zimmerman. The profile of the minor contributor “could not be determined.”

“Stain I” showed the presence of “at least two individuals.” Zimmerman was the major contributor, but Trayvon was “excluded as a possible contributor to the mixed DNA profile.” So, who is this second person?

“Stain N” showed the presence of “at least two individuals.” Zimmerman was the major contributor. The “partial minor DNA profile match” was that of Trayvon.

“Stain U” showed the presence of “at least two individuals.” Trayvon is “a possible contributor” to the DNA mix. But “no determination” could be made about the “possible contribution” of Zimmerman to the DNA profile.

“Stain BB” showed the presence of “at least two individuals.” The major and minor contributors to the DNA profile could not be determined, but Zimmerman is “included as a possible contributor. “No determination” could be made about the possible contribution of Trayvon.

The DNA data from “Stain V” were deemed “insufficient for inclusion purposes.” While the results were “consistent with the presence of a male individual,” no determination could be made on whether that male was Zimmerman or Trayvon.

The DNA data from “Stain Z” and “Stain G” were “not interpretable.” While there was the “presence of a male individual” in “Stain Z,” there was also the “possible presence of non-human DNA.” How odd. Is this the result of contamination?

Of the 47 stains tested for the presence of blood on Zimmerman’s shirt and jacket, Trayvon was a “partial minor DNA profile” in one stain and a “possible contributor” in another. He was “excluded as a possible contributor” in a third. That’s just three stains out of 47.

“Unless Trayvon Martin was wearing gloves and a bonnet, it would normally be expected that there would be some evidence of him on the garment,”
said Kendall Coffey, former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

As I mentioned previously, Coffey noted that ambiguities in DNA evidence could undermine Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense. But Coffey was cautious in assessing the DNA evidence after I read results to him. “This is nobody’s silver bullet,” he said. “All of these things standing alone are explainable. But when assembled at trial, they can provide meaningful support for the prosecution’s case.”

When Zimmerman takes the stand in his second-degree murder trial next year, he will tell his story of a life-and-death struggle once more. How he was cold-cocked by Trayvon. How his head was repeatedly slammed into the sidewalk. How he stopped Trayvon from using his gun on him. This time Zimmerman will tell his version of events under oath before a jury. And upon cross-examination, he will have to explain why and how there’s precious little DNA evidence to back it all up.

Mr X as a young Harvard trained Jewish lawyer


CLEVELAND –  A former fugitive suspected of running a $100 million cross-country scam collecting donations for Navy veterans has been identified as a Harvard-trained attorney wanted on unrelated fraud charges since 1987, authorities said Monday.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said the man who identified himself as Bobby Thompson and signed legal papers as "Mr. X" is really John Donald Cody, 65, whose true identity was uncovered through 1969 military fingerprints in a database separate from the national crime system.

Earlier checks of the criminal fingerprint database turned up nothing on Thompson's true identity.

He is jailed awaiting trial on charges of defrauding donors in 41 states of up to $100 million through a bogus Florida-based charity.
A four-count indictment filed in 1987 in Alexandria, Va., charged Cody with looting the estates of two women by making off with $99,000 from traveler checks purchased in Sierra Vista and Fort Huachuca, Ariz.

Elliott said at a courthouse news conference in Cleveland that the fingerprint match developed from tips he found last week doing Google searches for information about the suspect, including possible military or fraud backgrounds involving a missing person.

Elliott said he found a wanted poster for a similar-looking pompadour-wearing man who had disappeared after being accused of defrauding a legal client. The FBI searched military fingerprint files and found Cody's prints matched those taken from the suspect when he was arrested this year.

The suspect had served as a captain in U.S. military intelligence, Elliott said.

General / 4th richest woman in America is a Jewess
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:16:16 AM »

For the past six years, Elaine Tettemer Marshall, the fourth-richest woman in the U.S., has avoided the spotlight that ordinarily accompanies great wealth.

The 70-year-old Dallas resident controls almost 15 percent of Koch Industries Inc., the second-largest closely held company in the U.S. Her stake in the Wichita, Kansas-based industrial conglomerate, which generates annual sales of $110 billion, is worth more than $12.7 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which has expanded to 100 names. The only American women richer are Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) heiresses Alice and Christy Walton, and 71-year-old candy scion Jacqueline Mars.Marshall, who gained control of the Koch stake following the death of her husband, E. Pierce Marshall, in 2006, has never appeared on an international wealth ranking, although her estate has been at the center of two U.S. Supreme Court cases involving her mother-in-law, Anna Nicole Smith.

“The Marshalls have never been a lightning rod, because they’ve never been in the public view financially,” said Richard Lieb, a research professor of bankruptcy law at St. John’s University School of Law in New York, who filed briefs to the Supreme Court with his students when the cases were being heard. “No one went after them to find out what their evil deeds were, if any.”

Marshall’s ability to stay out of the limelight stands in contrast to her father-in-law, J. Howard Marshall, who had been a Koch shareholder for more than two decades and created a spectacle with his 1994 marriage to Smith, then a 26-year-old Playboy model, whom he wed at age 89. Since then, the Marshall fortune has been in a near-constant state of turmoil.
