Declassified: “Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump”, Letter to Lindsey Graham

“the Democratic Party overlooked the ethical red flags and made a pact with Mr. Clinton that was the equivalent of a pact with the devil. And he delivered. With Mr. Clinton at the controls, the party won the White House twice. But in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”…Bob Herbert, NY Times February 26, 2001

“If This Story Gets Out, We Are Screwed”…Wikileaks: Doug Band to John Podesta

 

From the Letter to Lindsey Graham from John Ratcliffe, Director of National Intelligence, September 29, 2020.

“Chairman Graham,
SEP 2 9 2020
In response to your request for Intelligence Community (IC) information related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Crossfire Hurricane Investigation, I have declassified the following:
• In late July 2016, U.S. intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee. The IC does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.
• According to his handwritten notes, former Central Intelligence Agency Director Brennan subsequently briefed President Obama and other senior national security officials on the intelligence, including the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.”
• On 07 September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral to FBI Director James Corney and Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok regarding “U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private mail server.”
As referenced in his 24 September 2020 letter to your Committee, Attorney General Barr has advised that the disclosure of this information will not interfere with ongoing Department of Justice investigations. Additional declassification and public disclosure of related intelligence remains under consideration; however, the IC welcomes the opportunity to provide a classified
briefing with further detail at your convenience.”

Seth Rich coverup Part 4, Donna Brazile, Mayor Bowser, Amy Dacey names resurface in Matthew Couch subpoena motion, Brazile lie? If so why?

Seth Rich coverup Part 4, Donna Brazile, Mayor Bowser, Amy Dacey names resurface in Matthew Couch subpoena motion, Brazile lie? If so why?

“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich. Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020

“The FBI clearly has records pertaining to Seth Rich, and it has withheld those
records in bad faith.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger October 11, 2019

” So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020

 

You may not have heard much about Donna Brazile, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, John Podesta, Certainly not Amy Dacey and their ties to Seth Rich and his mysterious death lately.

Old news? Definitely not.

Most of their names resurfaced a few days ago in filings from Matthew Couch, one of the defendants in Aaron Rich v Ed Butowsky, Matthew Couch and  America’First Media.

From Citizen Wells September 27, 2020.

“MOTION TO COMPEL

“Defendant Matthew Couch served a subpoena on Detective Joseph DellaCamera of the Metropolitan Police Department (“MPD”) in Washington, D.C. seeking the following:
1. All Documents and Communications relating to
a. Seth Rich, Aaron Rich, Joel Rich, Mary Rich, Kelsey Mulka, Joe Capone, Dov
Friedman, Eric Baker, Michael Cass-Antony, Rod Wheeler, Edward Butowsky,
Matthew Couch, Bill Pierce, Josh Filippo, Eddie Graham, Ty Clevenger, Julian
Assange, Wikileaks, Pratt Wiley, Amy Dacey, Andrew Theriault, Seymour Hersh,
Andy Kroll, William Sommer, Michael Isikoff;
b. any conflicts between Seth Rich and any co-workers or supervisors at the DNC
brought to your attention by Aaron Rich;
c. the alleged hacking of the DNC in 2016; the spearfishing attacks on DNC
officials, representatives and members or any person affiliated with the campaign of Hilary Clinton for President in 2016;
including, without limitation, for all items identified in points (a) – (f) above, all
Communications with Julian Assange, Michael Ratner, Margaret Kunstler, Michael Isikoff, David Folkenflik, William Sommer, Matt Taibi, Andy Kroll, Luke Harding, Christopher Steele, Craig Murray, Gavin McFayden, Dana Rohrbacher, Kim Dotcom, Kim Schmitz, Joseph DellaCamera, Muriel Bowser, Donna Brazile, Deborah Sines, Sumit Malik, Jonathan Moffa, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, Andrew Weissman, Robert Mueller, any representative, employee or agent of ABC,CBS, NBC, CNBC, HBO, Yahoo!, the Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times, Rolling Stole, Daily Beast and Vox, any employee, agent or representative of Wikileaks, or any other person known
or identified to you as a member or representative of the media (print, radio, television, Internet).”

Of the prominent players tied to the DNC leaks, who had the biggest reasons to silence the leaker and was Seth Rich involved?

Clinton camp? 

From a John Podesta email on Hillary’s reaction: “she is whipped up on actual damage.”   https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/35361

David Schippers in October 21, 2016 interview by Sandy Rios on American Family Association radio: Hillary: “If you want to talk about real evil, it’s her”

DNC?

Anyone affiliated with could be suspect.

John Podesta?

“I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it.”   https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/36082

Donna Brazile?

Damaged severely by DNC leak revelations and acted strangely.

  • Apparently lied about being out of town July 10, 2016 when the murder of Seth Rich took place. She left for Seattle later in the day. Why lie?
  • Was outed for giving Hillary Clinton debate question(s).
  • CNN severed ties with her.
  • Stated: “these sad ass whipper leakers try to slow my groove”
  • Matt Drudge: “Brazile writes she was haunted by murder of DNC Seth Rich, and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds so snipers could not see her ?” Did she know it was an assassination and perhaps who ordered it?

The following facts and/or allegations surrounding Brazile are interesting:

  • Some believe that Brazile and DC Mayor Bowser are married. They are nevertheless close.
  • It has been alleged that Brazile and Bowser were present at the hospital Seth Rich was taken to.
  • All indications were that Rich was stable at the hospital and expected to live.
  • Allegedly, a nurse that worked in the ICU said that Seth made it through surgery and was expected to pull through until the next day when D.C. Police and other individuals came barging in, CLEARED THE ICU OF MEDICAL STAFF(For some reason)! and then he died!
  • Allegedly, from 4th year surgery resident: “No one here was allowed to see Seth except for my attending when he died. No code was called. I rounded on patients literally next door but was physically blocked from checking in on him. I’ve never seen anything like it before, and while I can’t say 100% that he was allowed to die, I don’t understand why he was treated like that. Take it how you may, /pol/, I’m just one low level doc. Something’s fishy though, that’s for sure.”
  • It has been alleged that Brazile tried to stifle an investigation by the DC police.
  • Homicide detective Rod Wheeler: “The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,”
  • Washington DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier resigned August 16, 2016 later stating:   “The criminal justice system in this city is broken,”
  • News media Fox and others were sued by the Rich family. Joel, Mary and Aaron. High powered law firms have been employed.

 

Clearly, the people subpoenaed by Matthew Couch need to be questioned.

Clearly, if the DOJ and Durham are not investigating the Seth Rich murder and possible involvement in the DNC leaks, we have a huge problem.

We now know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the forces of the Deep State, the Obama Administration, the DOJ, the DNC, et al have actively been suppressing and obfuscating events and facts leading up to and following the 2016 election to protect their asses and try to destroy President Trump.

With the clarity of this knowledge and 20/20 hindsight, the actions of those above are more understandable and plausible.

Why in God’s name did Fox take on Brazile as a contributor?

She has been in league with many of the forces aligned against Fox and the truth about Seth Rich.

Did Amy Dacey out Seth Rich as the leaker?

“Seth Rich was suspected of leaking the DNC’s emails to Wikileaks. It’s likely that Amy Dacey, the DNC’s CEO found out that Seth was the leaker. She informed John Podesta, Hillary’s Campaign Manager,. He responded, I’m”definitely for making an example out of a suspected leaker, whether or not we have any real basis for it.”

Reading between the lines here, but if DNC insider and interim Chair Donna Brazile  truly believed that Seth Rich was randomly mugged in his  neighborhood at 4:20 AM, her paranoia would not exist.

This may be the ultimate inside story that Brazile knew about, but as is her MO, kept under wraps.  She will likely remain haunted until she comes clean. ”

“The left, the Democrats, the Deep State. Obama holdovers employing high powered law firms and corrupt judges have done their best to hide and obfuscate the truth surrounding the DNC leaks and possible involvement by Seth Rich.”…Citizen Wells

“With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug.

Fox News Network, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky

September 25, 2020.

https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.nysd.490098/gov.uscourts.nysd.490098.208.0.pdf

This case had been returned to this lower court on appeal.

From Citizen Wells July 14, 2019.

“This is possibly the most unreported important news story I have ever encountered.

Joel and Mary Rich lost their lawsuit against Fox News in 2018 and on September 27, 2018 filed an appeal.

First, their lawsuit results.

From the Federalist Papers.

“Fox News Wins Seth Rich Lawsuit; Judge Dismisses

A New York City judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by the parents of murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich on Thursday that asserted Fox News Channel colluded with the White House to propel a false, politically-biased narrative about Rich’s death.”

“It is understandable that plaintiffs might feel that their grief and personal loss were taken advantage of, and that the tragic death of their son was exploited for political purposes,” but Fox evidently did not intend to inflict emotional distress, Judge George Daniels wrote in his decision.””

Amy Coney Barrett President Trump pick for SCOTUS, Judge U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia

Amy Coney Barrett President Trump pick for SCOTUS, Judge U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia

“I made it absolutely clear that I would go forward with a confirmation process as [Senate Judiciary] chairman, even a few months before a presidential election, if the nominee were chosen with the advice, and not merely the consent, of the Senate, just as the Constitution requires,” ..Joe Biden, Georgetown Law School 2016

“When there is a vacancy on the SCOTUS, the President is to nominate someone, the Senate is to consider that nomination … There’s no unwritten law that says that it can only be done on off-years. That’s not in the Constitution text.”...Barack Obama 2016

“Even if President Trump wants to put forward a name now, the Senate should not act until after the American people select their next president, their next Congress, their next Senate,”...Joe Biden 2020 

 

The NY Times is calling it:

“President Trump has selected Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the favorite candidate of conservatives, to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and will try to force Senate confirmation before Election Day in a move that would significantly alter the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court for years.

Mr. Trump plans to announce on Saturday that she is his choice, according to six people close to the process who asked not to be identified disclosing the decision in advance. As they often do, aides cautioned that Mr. Trump sometimes upends his own plans.

But he is not known to have interviewed any other candidates and came away from two days of meetings with Judge Barrett this week impressed with a jurist he was told would be a female Antonin Scalia, referring to the justice she once clerked for. On Friday night, Judge Barrett was photographed getting out of her car outside her home in South Bend, Ind.

“I haven’t said it was her, but she is outstanding,” Mr. Trump told reporters who asked about Judge Barrett’s imminent nomination at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington after CNN and other news outlets reported on his choice.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/25/us/politics/amy-coney-barrett-supreme-court.html

From The University of Notre Dame Law School.

“The Honorable Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in October 2017. She is a Notre Dame Law School alumna and has taught as a member of the Law School’s faculty since 2002.

Judge Barrett teaches and researches in the areas of federal courts, constitutional law, and statutory interpretation. Her scholarship in these fields has been published in leading journals, including the Columbia, Virginia, and Texas Law Reviews. From 2010-2016, she served by appointment of the Chief Justice on the Advisory Committee for the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. She has been selected as “Distinguished Professor of the Year” by three of the Law School’s graduating classes.

Judge Barrett earned her B.A. in English literature, magna cum laude, from Rhodes College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and, among other honors, was chosen by the faculty as the most outstanding graduate in the college’s English department. She earned her J.D., summa cum laude, from Notre Dame, where she was a Kiley Fellow, earned the Hoynes Prize, the Law School’s highest honor, and served as executive editor of the Notre Dame Law Review.

Before joining the Notre Dame faculty, Judge Barrett clerked for Judge Laurence H. Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and for Associate Justice Antonin Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court. As an associate at Miller, Cassidy, Larroca & Lewin in Washington, D.C., she litigated constitutional, criminal, and commercial cases in both trial and appellate courts. Judge Barrett has served as a visiting associate professor and John M. Olin Fellow in Law at the George Washington University Law School,  as a visiting associate professor of law at the University of Virginia and is a member of the American Law Institute (ALI).”

documents—its fifth production of exculpatory evidence since April of 2020, and its third since filing its massive Motion to Dismiss. ECF Nos. 198, 231, 237. According to the Government’s production correspondence: “The documents include handwritten notes of former Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok (23501 & 23503) and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe (23502); and internal text messages between FBI analysts who worked on the Flynn matter (23504- 23516); . . . additional text messages between former DAD Strzok and Lisa Page (23516-23540).” The 41 pages of additional evidence demonstrate (i) his innocence; (ii) the absence of any crime; (iii) government misconduct in the investigation of General Flynn; and (iv) continuing prosecutorial misconduct in the suppression of evidence favorable to the defense in violation of Brady v. Maryland and this Court’s Brady order. ECF No. 20.

These documents provide information long known to the agents and others at
the highest levels of the Department of Justice and the FBI; information long
concealed by the Special Counsel and FBI. This evidence shows outrageous,
deliberate misconduct by FBI and DOJ—playing games with the life of a national
hero. It negates multiple essential elements required for the prosecution of a false statement offense and any “offense” even considered in relationship to Flynn Intel Group’s review of open source information regarding Fethullah Gulen and the Muslim Brotherhood.

This remarkable new production shows that in August of 2016, the FBI
analysts discussed the preference of some agents for a Clinton Presidency—a known quantity—“instead of a wild card like [T]rump.”

In messages exchanged on the FBI’s “Lync” messaging system in October of
2016, FBI employees exchanged messages about the “Crossfire Road Show,” stating that they were “interested to see how this all plays out.” They knew exactly how bad it was: “I’m tellying man, if this thing ever gets FOIA’d, there are going to be some tough questions asked.””

US Senate Committee Hunter Biden Report Sept. 23, 2020, Hunter Biden paid millions of dollars from corrupt Ukrainian oligarch, Kerry lied

US Senate Committee Hunter Biden Report Sept. 23, 2020, Hunter Biden paid millions of dollars from corrupt Ukrainian oligarch, Kerry lied

“Joe Biden “Outraged We Seized Burisma Assets”, Could No Longer Pay His Son…”…Former Ukraine Prosecutor Shokin

“One of the downstream consequences of Rudy Giuliani investigating the Ukraine corruption and money laundering operation to U.S. officials is that it ends up catching Senator Graham.”…Conservative Treehouse

“I discovered a pattern of corruption that the Washington press covered up for years! I’m also going to bring out a massive pay-for-play scheme under the Obama Administration that will devastate the Democrat Party. Do you honestly think I’m intimidated?”…Rudy Giuliani,

 

From the US Senate Committee Hunter Biden Report Sept. 23, 2020.

“On April 16, 2014, Vice President Biden met with his son’s business partner, Devon Archer, at the White House. Five days later, Vice President Biden visited Ukraine, and he soon after was described in the press as the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.” The day after his visit, on April 22, Archer joined the board of Burisma. Six days later, on April 28, British officials seized $23 million from the London bank accounts of Burisma’s owner,
Mykola Zlochevsky. Fourteen days later, on May 12, Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, and over the course of the next several years, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were paid millions of dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch for their participation on the board.

The 2014 protests in Kyiv came to be known as the Revolution of Dignity — a revolution against corruption in Ukraine. Following that revolution, Ukrainian political figures were desperate for U.S. support. Zlochevsky would have made sure relevant Ukrainian officials were well aware of Hunter’s appointment to Burisma’s board as leverage. Hunter Biden’s position on the board created an immediate potential conflict of interest that would prove to be problematic
for both U.S. and Ukrainian officials and would affect the implementation of Ukraine policy.”

“XII. CONCLUSION.
As the Chairmen’s report details, Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board negatively impacted the efforts of dedicated career-service individuals who were fighting to push for anticorruption measures in Ukraine. Because the vice president’s son had a direct link to a corrupt company and its owner, State Department officials were required to maintain situational awareness of Hunter Biden’s association with Burisma. Unfortunately, U.S. officials had no
other choice but to endure the “awkward[ness]” of continuing to push an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine while the vice president’s son sat on the board of a Ukrainian company with a corrupt owner. As George Kent testified, he “would have advised any American not to get on the board of Zlochevsky’s company.”428F 429 Yet, even though Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board cast a shadow over the work of those advancing anticorruption reforms in Ukraine, the Committees are only aware of two individuals who raised concerns to their superiors. Despite the efforts of these individuals, their concerns appear to have fallen on deaf ears.

Former Secretary Kerry’s December 2019 denial of having any knowledge about Hunter Biden or Burisma is inconsistent with the evidence uncovered by the Committees. Kerry was briefed about Hunter Biden, Burisma and Christopher Heinz the day after Burisma announced Hunter Biden joined its board. Additionally, Secretary Kerry’s senior advisor sent him press clips and articles relating to Hunter Biden’s board membership. This appears to be yet another
example of high-ranking Obama administration officials blatantly ignoring Hunter Biden’s association with Burisma.”

“Even though almost all of the Committees’ records are from U.S. agencies and U.S. officials or persons, Democrats have repeatedly misconstrued the facts of this investigation and have smeared it as a Russian disinformation campaign. In doing so, they conveniently have ignored their own long history of meeting with Telizhenko and his yearlong work for a Democrat lobby shop. If Democrats are concerned that Telizhenko presents any risk of advancing disinformation, it is notable that the Ranking Members have not expressed any curiosity about
his work with the Obama administration or Blue Star Strategies.

The records acquired by the Committees also show that Hunter Biden and his family were involved in a vast financial network that connected them to foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe. Hunter Biden and Devon Archer, in particular, formed significant and consistent financial relationships with the corrupt oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky during their time working for Burisma, and their firms made millions of dollars from that association while
Joe Biden was vice president and the public face of the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy. Rosemont Seneca Thornton, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden, received $3.5 million in a wire transfer from Elena Baturina, who allegedly received illegal construction contracts from her husband, the then-mayor of Moscow. Moreover, Archer’s apparent receipt of money for a car from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan while Vice President Biden was in Kyiv is
especially concerning in light of the timing. And finally, Biden and Archer’s work with Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime illustrate the deep financial connections that accelerated while Joe Biden was vice president and continued after he left office.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissent right about mandated arbitration, “insulated powerful economic interests from liability”, Thrivent powerful example

Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissent right about mandated arbitration, “insulated powerful economic interests from liability”, Thrivent powerful example

“Thrivent contends that its commitment to individual arbitration is ‘”important to the membership because it reflects Thrivent’s Christian Common Bond, helps preserve members’ fraternal relationships, and avoids protracted and adversarial litigation that could undermine Thrivent’s core mission.’”…Thrivent v. Acosta Nov. 3, 2017

“pre-dispute mandatory arbitration provisions are inappropriate in insurance policies and incompatible with the legal duties insurers owe policyholders when handling their claims.”…NAIC, National Association of Insurance Commissioners, August 15, 2016

“I worked at Thrivent Financial full-time (More than 8 years)”                      “Claims to be based on Christian values but does not adhere to them.”…Former Thrivent employee

 

I got quite an education at an enormous financial and emotional cost when I filed claims with Thrivent Financial (for Lutherans) on 2 occasions.

They retroactively changed the contract on a disability policy I paid on religiously for 25 years to require mandated dispute resolution including arbitration.

They committed documented fraud on both occasions and demanded that even fraud go to arbitration.

They took away my day in court.

From Citizen Wells July 1, 2018.

“People around me and online may try to put me in a nice neat box such as Republican.

I do not fit.

What I am is an American who adheres to the US Constitution and rule of law.

I am not against arbitration on principle. Mutually agreed to.

I am against forced, mandated arbitration which strips away one of our basic rights.

Our day in court.”

“The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that companies can use arbitration clauses in employment contracts to prohibit workers from banding together to take legal action over workplace issues.

The vote was 5 to 4, with the court’s more conservative justices in the majority. The court’s decision could affect some 25 million employment contracts.”

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg read her dissent from the bench, a sign of profound disagreement. In her written dissent, she called the majority opinion “egregiously wrong.” In her oral statement, she said the upshot of the decision “will be huge under-enforcement of federal and state statutes designed to advance the well being of vulnerable workers.””

““Under those contracts, Justice Ginsburg wrote, it is often not worth it and potentially dangerous to pursue small claims individually. “By joining hands in litigation, workers can spread the costs of litigation and reduce the risk of employer retaliation,” she wrote.

The contracts may also encourage misconduct, Justice Ginsburg wrote.

“Employers, aware that employees will be disinclined to pursue small-value claims when confined to proceeding one-by-one, will no doubt perceive that the cost-benefit balance of underpaying workers tips heavily in favor of skirting legal obligations,” she wrote, adding that billions of dollars in underpaid wages are at issue.”

“In a 2015 dissent, Justice Ginsburg, citing a New York Times article examining arbitration agreements, wrote that the 2011 decision and later ones “have predictably resulted in the deprivation of consumers’ rights to seek redress for losses, and, turning the coin, they have insulated powerful economic interests from liability for violations of consumer protection laws.””

From Citizen Wells March 26, 2019.

“From Insurance Business Magazine.

Clicking “accept” on a company’s terms and conditions – something we do daily to use and pay for products and services – usually subjects us to lengthy contractual agreements, many of which contain mandatory arbitration clauses. Proponents of arbitration might think it’s the greatest thing since whole wheat artisanal sliced bread, but mandating arbitration in consumer contracts is troublesome, and it has no place in insurance policies for individuals and small businesses.”

“However, placing mandatory arbitration clauses in insurance policies restructures this crucial aspect of the insurer-insured relationship. Companies presumably employ pre-dispute mandatory arbitration provisions because they believe arbitration generally benefits them – and a growing amount of research suggests they are right.”

“From the NAIC, The National Association of Insurance Commissioners, August 15, 2016.

“Why arbitration clauses should be banned”

“Insurers that would insist on mandatory arbitration of policyholder disputes have selected the forum that they believe will be more favorable to them than to their policyholders, if not on each individual claim then in the aggregate. However, manipulating the dispute resolution process in this manner conflicts with the duties insurers owe their policyholders and is not holding their policyholders’ interests “at least equal to their own.”

If arbitration was truly a neutral forum rather than one favoring insurers, then there would be no need for an insurer to insist on its use before a dispute has even arisen.”

https://citizenwells.com/2019/03/26/mandated-arbitration-has-no-place-in-insurance-policies-for-individuals-naic-reviewing-mccarran-ferguson-act-allows-states-to-regulate-arbitration-in-insurance-over-federal-arbitration-act-faa/

Arbitration can be a valuable tool. But it should not be mandated.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg  was right.

God bless.
