Hodges and Associates - 12/25/13 "THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM"
FIGHTING THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM
To dream ... the impossible dream ...
To fight ... the unbeatable foe ...
To bear ... with unbearable sorrow ...
To run ... where the brave dare not go ...
To right ... the unrightable wrong ...
To love ... pure and chaste from afar ...
To try ... when your arms are too weary ...
To reach ... the unreachable star ...
This is my quest, to follow that star ...
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far ...
To fight for the right, without question or pause ...
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause ...
That is the real reason I became counsel for seven brave travelers of similar mind and spirit some five plus years ago. I was frustrated by all the B.S. continually being fed to the CMKM Diamonds Inc. shareholders, I was confused by the fact that no one appeared to ‘be in charge,’ and I was perplexed by so many years having already passed since I had been told by the “founders” that “.... it will all be history within no more than a year.” I was simply overcome with a compulsion to get to the bottom of what was taking place with my not insubstantial investment in this public company, CMKX. Accordingly, because I then enjoyed the luxury of time and resources, I dove in head first and was soon consumed on a full time basis with pursuing the answer to my quest; I can assure you all that it seemed at that point to be an impossible dream.
I did not begin this quest out of a sense of arrogance, power madness, or other such motive; I began this quest because of the vacuum that existed. After some reflection I began to appreciate that I might be the only substantial shareholder with the proper mix of professional skill, investigative skill, intellectual impetus and stimulus, and where-with-all to pursue it. I do not intend to recite here the efforts and travails of the intervening years; some have already been published – the rest will have to await another time.
What I do wish to discuss in this message is some of the reasons for the extremely protracted delay in achieving resolution. In that regard, please understand that circumstance still constrains what I can relate and what must remain, at least for the moment, hidden. To repeat myself again, “...I have previously stated, we have confronted, with added pressure from the ‘lien-holders,’ the vilest, most contemptible, well financed forces for evil on the planet – and we have won!” As I have previously stated, some many months later, that must seem to have been an idle boast. However, it does reflect the mighty struggle that has been raging in the shadows.
The essence of the delay relates directly to the relatively small role CMKX has played in this developing correction. I use those words specifically, and intentionally, to convey what this has been all about. It has not only been about Wall Street, or financial corruption, or fiat currency, or political corruption, or concentration of all the world’s resources in the hands of a few such that the rest of the population become slaves, or the allowance by the American public of having their Constitutional Republic craftily usurped and replaced with a Corporation, or any combination of such ‘horribles;’ it has rather been about all of these things and more. It has been about the US of A and every other civilization on this planet; it has been about returning the US of A to its rightful intended form of government; it has been about crafting a successful and transparent global financial system based on real values; it has been about agreeing with all of our neighbors to a system of trade balance such that the playing field is equally available to all and represents fairness to each; it has been about allowing the world’s resources, both natural and financial to be equitably allocated among all civilized nations; and, it has been about preparing the world for the future.
You’ve heard me state repeatedly that we’ve won; in the face of that you wonder all these many months later why I would lie to you and/or misrepresent the state of affairs. Indeed, I would not do so under any circumstance of which I can conceive, so, let me be perfectly clear: we won the battle over CMKX and our right to be compensated for those wrongs perpetrated against us . I did not mean to suggest when making that statement that the battle was over – if some were left with that impression, I apologize for the inadequacy of my expression. I tried repeatedly to make clear that the battle raged on, and would so continue, until such time as we had received ER. ER was then defined on multiple occasions as receipt by another of my clients of the BASEL approved funds due to be paid to him for the express purpose of conducting the US Dollar Refunding Project, a part of the World Global Settlements (WGS), as is the Global Currency Reset (GCR).
As I have set forth in essentially every legal document and every CMKX Update, achieving ER was a sina qua non to the CMKX shareholders being paid; the reason is a simple one – THAT’S THE WAY THE ENTIRE GAME PLAN WAS STRUCTURED. The fact that the game plan was set up that way became a great stimulus to me to get involved with the WGS and GCR; it simply became the only means available to ‘hurry up’ the CMKX pay-out. No one insisted I become involved and no one has paid me to be involved; however, I have picked up several new clients along the road, and I hope to assist them in their socially responsible efforts after these WGS/GCR programs become realized.
I tried originally to focus the attention of the shareholders on receipt of ER because I had received advice that such receipt would not only be public, but in fact would be the last item completed on the G-20 approved BASEL List of items to be accomplished necessary to support the World Global Settlements and the Global Currency Reset. Accordingly, I concluded, based upon all the information I had discovered, that the CMKX ‘packages’ would be delivered right after the receipt of ER, mostly as a result of the mandate that CMKX moneys be paid out in asset-backed currency. However, the miscreants came to the very same conclusion and have focused intensely on preventing Economic Receipt by any and all means possible.
Their efforts have involved literally every means possible; if you can conceive of it, it is a method/approach the cabal has taken advantage of and utilized. To counteract such behavior, the “sting” approach has been utilized frequently and repeatedly by the ‘good guys.’ The most recent example of this concerns the expected RV of the Iraqi Dinar [IQD] currency, part of the Global Currency Reset. Because of their high exalted status, many Congressional seat holders and other D.C. ‘bigwigs’ were originally allowed to convert their IQD holdings to Bank SKR’s, or Safe Keeping Receipts; these were originally done at various rates of expected exchange value which was in most cases substantially below the rumored $32.00 rate. These same people were recently [w/i the last six weeks] given the opportunity to convert these SKR’s to GFR’s, or Guaranteed Fund Receipts; at that same time they were generally provided approximately 10% of the GFR value in cash equivalents with the express promise that said cash would not be utilized to purchase more IQD. We are currently advised that many thousands violated such proscription almost immediately. Some of these people will be resigning their offices and some others will undoubtedly be prosecuted. Use of these continuing “sting” operations has helped to weed out those who continue to support the cabal and accede to their instructions; most of the other ‘miscreants’ have been arrested one or more times [Timothy Geithner for example has been arrested more than four times] and currently face prosecution in the near future.
The cabal is finished! Most of the high-level and medium-level people, both in and out of government, have by now either been “stung” or arrested, and now face some combination of disgrace, loss of financial advantage, loss of position of power, loss of official office, and/or near term prosecution. In my opinion, having closely monitored the events as they occurred, we have reached the position of imminent conclusion. Although it is very difficult to appreciate the length of time this has taken, I can now accept that the acts involved were necessary to accomplish the goals sought. As a result of this opinion and now having a fuller understanding of both the goals, and the accomplishments to date, I will once again stick my neck out to advise you all that your journey is all but over.
It is my opinion, based not only on what I am told each day by those at the top of the new powers that be, but more importantly on the status of the imminent Global Currency Reset. Its status is important because it cannot become a public fait accompli without the US Treasury becoming a hard-metal asset backed issuer of US currency. Accordingly, when you publicly see the Global Currency Reset you will know that we have an asset backed currency, and you will know that we have received ER. Every indication from every credible source is that the Reset will become public today, tomorrow, the next day, or certainly by January 1, 2014.
I cannot guarantee this of course, but it does represent my best opinion based on all available information. I can absolutely assure you that the wonder of what you are so soon to experience – REALITY – will mightily blow away any doubt, disbelief, bitter humor, or unhappy memories that recent experiences have encouraged and supported. As I have said in the past, “you will be paid a great deal more than any have the right to expect [based on the amount of [your] investment]. In addition, you will receive a payment for the unconscionable length of payment delay.”
Ps. Let me take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Joyous Holiday Season.

|Man in diamond mine scandal dead but certainly not forgotten |
Posted date February 25, 2014 - 11:48pm
By John L. Smith
Las Vegas Review-Journal
Urban Casavant is dead, but don’t expect all the suckers who dumped millions into his diamond mine stock scam to believe it.
In fact, the Cult of Casavant and the CMKM Diamonds swindle continue apace despite the officially confirmed end of the line for the penny stock mastermind, whose shenanigans allegedly topped $70 million.
Investor chat rooms recently went into overdrive chewing on the possibilities. Some investors swore they didn’t believe Casavant was dead. Then again, some of those same investors still hold out hope he wasn’t conning them all these years.
When the Review-Journal last week published a story noting Casavant’s official death on Feb. 14 in Canada, one reader replied, “What a bunch of crap. Where are the documents where Urban was fighting extradition? I don’t believe a word of this article.”
Multiple unofficial reports on the Internet states Casavant had died during hernia surgery. Lifting that much bravado for so many years apparently took its toll.
The Las Vegas-based Casavant was indicted in 2009 on securities fraud charges. He and nine others on March 24, 2010, were slammed with a superseding indictment on a variety of securities fraud and other felonies that included conspiracy to money launder and tax evasion.
The Securities and Exchange Commission for years pursued Casavant and his crew on civil violations related to his infamous Canadian diamond boondoggle.
According to the superseding indictment, Casavant’s team used at least nine shell corporations to facilitate the unregistered sale of stock to customers recruited through his own contacts and a series of boiler room-style solicitations.
It wasn’t a small operation. Although shares in CMKM often traded in the fractions of a cent, according to the indictment, “the conspirators and their confederates caused these and other corporate shells to issue hundreds of billions of unregistered shares of stock to the defendants and their 14 nominees, associates, alter-egos and straw-purchasers.”
Of course, if Canadian diamond investment didn’t catch your fancy, Casavant’s crew back in 2006 was more than willing to sell you shares — as many as you desired! — in a guaranteed moneymaker called Worldwide Cannery and Distribution, which supposedly was shipping king crab from St. Petersburg, Russia, to the United States.
“In truth, the seafood cannery was not producing products or profits but was instead defunct and bankrupt,” the indictment noted.
Alas, no diamonds. And no crab, either.
The suckers chased good money after bad and held out hope of grand future paydays after reading the steady stream of forward-looking statements coming from Casavant and CMKM. As always, the diamond score was always just around the corner.
Eventually, many investors realized they were getting the runaround and lit up phone lines at the SEC, FBI, IRS and elsewhere.
The indictment states, “These shells did not conduct substantial business activities and produced no appreciable goods, services, or profits. Indeed, the principal business activities of these shells was the sale of unregistered shares of stock. Despite the elaborate facade constructed by the enterprise, investors in time recognized that shares of the particular corporate shell in which they had invested were of little, if any, value.”
By then, of course, Casavant had long since spent their money on everything from gambling forays at Strip casinos to expenses for a racing team that also marketed CMKM Diamonds.
His racing team briefly entered the 2012 U.S. Senate race between Dean Heller and Shelley Berkley. A racing enthusiast, as Nevada secretary of state, Heller had once driven a Casavant race vehicle. Heller through a spokesperson denied he had ever done Casavant any favors.
Although it’s not going to placate those investors who fantasize about recovering anything from their encounter with Casavant, his departure must have some people breathing easier: for one, those casino officials who played the gracious host to the high roller in the months and years after his activities were made public in the Review-Journal and on credible stock watchdog websites.
Word is Casavant blew a bundle at the tables.
Now he’s gone — but you don’t have to believe it if you don’t want to.

|US v. John Edwards et al (CMKM) - »Case Update: CMKM |
The public is reminded that an indictment contains only charges and is not evidence of guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Defendants: John Edwards, Jeffrey Turino, Urban Casavant, Nickolaj Vissokovsky, Melissa Spooner, Helen Bagley, Jeffrey Mitchell, Brian Dvorak, Ginger Gutierrez, James Kinney
A false rumor has circulated that confuses the criminal prosecution in the District of Nevada (United States v. John Edwards, et al., 2:09-CR-00132-RLH-RJJ) with a civil suit out of the Central District of California that has now been dismissed (David Anderson, et al., v. Christopher Cox, et al., 8:10 –CV-00031-JVS-MLG). There are many variations of this rumor. However, in short, the Anderson civil case is not related to the Edwards criminal case. In Anderson, the plaintiffs allege that the SEC and other agencies of the U.S. Government conducted a sting operation against “illegitimate brokers, dealers, market makers, hedge funds, and other persons and entities that had engaged in naked short selling of CMKM Diamonds Inc. stock.” Anderson Rev. First Amended Complaint, p. 17, para. 48. Essentially, the Anderson case involved allegations against an entire industry. In contrast, the superseding criminal indictment in the Edwards case charges a more clearly defined group of defendants: insiders at one company (CMKM) and people who enabled them.
Additionally, in the course of investigating and litigating the Edwards criminal case, government personnel in the District of Nevada have not encountered any evidence indicating that a government agency conducted a sting operation against naked short sellers of CMKM stock. Government personnel in the District of Nevada have also not come across any evidence of any settlement fund (much less any settlement fund with trillions of dollars) potentially available to pay possible claims of CMKM shareholders. The criminal investigation in the District of Nevada resulting in the United States v. John Edwards, et al., indictment involved no sting operation.
We hope this statement clarifies the differences between United States v. John Edwards, et al., with the facts alleged in David Anderson, et al., v. Christopher Cox, et al. The public is reminded that defendants are innocent until proven guilty. Thank you.
Scheduled Court Hearings
Status Hearing - April 29, 2014 at 9:00 am
Trial Date - April 23, 2014 at 9:30 am

Second Superseding Indictment
On March 24, 2010, the grand jury returned a sealed Second Superseding Indictment which added the following defendants: Jeffrey Turino, Nickolaj Vissokovsky and Jeffrey Mitchell. In addition, several new charges were added, alleging that certain defendants engaged in a conspiracy to conduct an enterprise engaged in a pattern of racketeering activity, a conspiracy to sell unregistered securities and to commit securities fraud and a conspiracy to commit money laundering. On May 6, 2010, the Second Superseding Indictment was unsealed.
The superseding indictment in United States v. Edwards, et al., alleges as follows: the defendants combined and conspired to perpetrate a fraud involving the issuance and sale of CMKM stock over a period of several years. Hundreds of billions of shares of CMKM stock were sold to thousands of investors during that span. Investors in CMKM are invited (but not required) to complete the following questionnaire. The questionnaire solicits information pertaining to this case for purposes of enabling prosecutors to confer with and receive information and opinions from victims of the CMKM scheme. Please note that while the completed questionnaires will not be publicly accessible, relevant information may be disclosed to the court and/or defense counsel in accordance with the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and other laws.

Most of the high-level and medium-level people, both in and out of government, have either been “wood-shedded” and/or arrested, and now face disgrace, loss of financial advantage, loss of position-of-power, loss of official office, and near-term prosecution.
In my opinion, having participated in many of the events as they occurred, we are finally at the point of conclusion.
While it is very difficult to accept the inordinate amount of time this has taken, I can tell you that the acts involved were categorically required to accomplish the end goals.
As a result of now having a fuller understanding of both the end goals, and the progress to date, I will once again stick my neck out to advise you all that your journey is essentially over.
My professional opinion is based not only on what I am told each day by those at the top of the New Powers That Be, but more importantly on the status of the imminent Global Currency Reset.
Its status is important because it cannot become a public fait accompli without the US Treasury becoming a hard-metal asset-backed issuer of US currency – the very definition of ER.
Accordingly, when you publicly see the Global Currency Reset you will know that we have an asset backed currency, and you will know that we have received ER.
Every indication from every credible source is that the Reset will become public today, tomorrow, the next day, or certainly by January 1, 2015; most probably before Christmas.
I do not and cannot guarantee this of course; but, it does represent my professional opinion based on all available information.
I can assure you that the impact of what you are so soon to experience will mightily shatter any doubt, disbelief, bitter humor, or unhappy memories that this journey may have encouraged and supported.
As I have said in the past, “you will be paid a great deal more than any have the right to expect [based on the amount of your investment]. In addition, you will receive a payment for the unconscionable length of payment delay.” Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
