Dear SEC,

While I was adding mOre to my 'Gary Weiss Bashes Ron Paul-
'Librtarian Friend Of Wall Street ?' posts on the message board another controversy broke out between Gary Weiss and the Overstock.con gang that involves manipulation of Wikipedia for the purpose of securities frauds.Patrick Byrne and his NCANS gang of course want to post Overstock.con share promotion propaganda on Wikipedia and have everyone pretend it has encyclopedic credibility.


And Gary Weiss appears to have more than just friends on Wall Street or at Forbes.con.It appears the NCANS fraudsters such as Judd Bagely ,(who was caught altering Dick Cheney's Wikipedia bio,hee hee),who is a former internet 'dirty tricks' propagandist for ex Florida Governor Jeb Bush is however onto something about Gary Weiss and his Wikipedia 'vanity bio' writer - the anonymous 'editor' MantanMoreland - because it occurs to me that it was this very alias editor on Wikipedia who also removed my links and material re James Dale Davidson including his role in creating NAANSS or 'National Association Against Naked Short Selling'.All mention of James Dale Davidson's connection to the now out of control naked short selling claim - used to distract from illegal insider share manipulation of non Blue Chip stocks - has been removed from Wikipedia thanks to Gary Weiss' Wikipedia 'biographer' MantanMoreland.

Logical deduction should help you at the SEC to see that MantanMoreland just like his bio subject Gary Weiss have made a premeditated decision to censor all mention of James Dale Davidson's involvement with NAANSS or mention of NAANSS ITSELF FOR THAT MATTER - SO THE CONFUSION and fraud started by Steve Forbes'(Weiss' employer),fellow National Taxpayers Union member and founder Davidson is covered up So as I conclude below both Weiss and his competitors at NCANS and Overstock.con have a common vested interest in mis-informing and defraud or aid in defrauding victims of the fraudulent naked short selling claim such as myself and I don't know how many others.You can't imagine how disillusioned I am that this former BusinessWeek reporter and author of 'The Mafia on Wall Street',etc. has all this time been conning me to believe he was as interested in the truth about this naked short claim fraud as I was Instead he was removing my material on Wikipdia to cover up for his bosses' pal Davidson

In effect both Gary Weiss and his Nemesis,Overstock.con's Judd Bagely,are both securities and or penny stock scum and each cover up for their respected bosses - Steve Forbes and Patrick Byrne respectively And obviously if Wikipedia is going to allow these scam writers or editors on Wikipedia or the anonymous Irish-Black 'editor' Mantanmoreland who simultaneously claims black decent but appears more interested in certain Jews and Israelis(Weiss claims to be Jewish),and some Christian leaders than in black history or Palestinian history for instance.

In the area of stocks and securitiues where billions of dollars are at stake,Wikipedia IS ALLOWING THE FOXES INTO THE HENHOUSE BECAUSE BOTH WEISS AND BAGELY HAVE ULTERIOR MOTIVES IN THEIR 'EDITING' AT WIKIPEDIA.

This also explains how my writing and legit links to and about the penny stock fraudster and founder of Steve Forbes(Weiss's employer)connected National Taxpayers Union and all connections between him and NAANSS,etc. were removed and censored

Uh,I believe you in your zeal to be cute with your Ma Barker bs forgot to mention the Tel Aviv connection.Tel Aviv is in Israel.
Oh that's why......Gary you must have run a penny scam in your life.If not you've missed your calling.
Are your fellow frauds and scammers at thesanitycheck right(definitly far right like you)about you manipulating Wikipedia?

Someone certainly censored and 'cleaned up'the truth and links about your boss's(Steve Forbes)pal James Dale Davidson and his role in the 'naked short selling' fraudulent penny stock claim didn't they?That alias I belive was 'Mantanmoreland' who coincidentally wrote the Wikipedia vanity biography for Gary Weiss If this is true Steve Forbes has a corp whore posing as a history and encyclopedia writer at Wikipeadi

So while thesanitycheck and Overstock.con folks are definitely securities criminals and con artists their supposed nemesis Gary Weiss with his Wikipedia vanity bio is equal to or worse than them ?.Wikipedia needs to investigate the possibilty a corp whore,Gary Weiss,or an associate of his,'Mantanmoreland', who also edits out James Dale Davidson's involvement(NAANSS and according to 'Bob O'Brien'also NCANS),are one and same or
'work' together on Wikipedia.All those editing Wikipedia's naked short selling site or related sites should be investigated ASAP.

THE VERY NAKED SHORT SELLING CLAIM FRAUD AND SCHEME that Weiss has pretended to investigate and lies to protect Davidson,(claiming a Phil Saunders not Davidson is involved with NCANS)Wikipedia should investigate ASAP.

The link to theregister of uk post below was brought to my attention by the fraudulent thesanitycheck.con website known to be sponsored by Patrick Byrne of Overstock.con wose daddy Jack Byrne is Geico insurance billionaire.There no doubt he is running a money losing scam and using the cash to among other things bribe U.S. such as Utah Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. and funding political dirty tricks such as Swift Boat Captains For Truth and anti-public medicine and anti-public education and other far right political causes.
Note the whole purpose of the American based or targeted is a supposed anti- 'naked short selling' campaign that even enlists corrupt politicians such as Utah's Huntsman Jr.,and U.S. Utah Republican Mormon Senators Bob Bennett and Orin Hatch.
On the other hand Wikipedia is unaware to judge from their vanity bio for Gary Weiss written by Wikipedia editor Wastemoreland,I mean Mantanmoreland,that Forbes employee and supposed scorge of the Mafia and other bad Italians(except for his bosses' presidential choice Rudy Giuliani,Gary Weiss - also has an agenda.And in light of 'Mantanmoreland's'
Wikipeadia stories he himself seems to not write much about 'business writers' - EXCEPT FOR THE EXCEPTION OF THE WEISS BIO
Mananmoreland' who is somehow Irish also has a 'distant relation to a blak actor according to him which is strange even more so because his chief writting interest besides scam stocks(just like BusinessWeek,Forbes journalist Weiss whose Wikipedia bio he wrote.)
He says he is and Irish decent yet claims somehow a blood connection to a black actor he never really explains on his self written Wikipedia bio :
Some facts about Mantanmoreland
The name. Why "Mantanmoreland"? Because I am distantly related to the real Mantan Moreland. That's why It's my tribute to a great and underappreciated actor. No, I'm not African-American, not that it matters. I suppose that, if one wanted to be precise, you could say I am of primarily Irish-American ancestry with some leavening thrown in.
My interests: See below.
I became involved in an editing war a couple of months ago. I have vowed, "Never again"
I have the honor in my short career of having been stalked many times.
- Wikipedia editor
(Strange I had never heard of a wikipedia author being 'stalked' but I have read Gary Weiss' blogspot since he began covering Patrick Byrne and the naked short scam and Gary complained about being stalked by's Judd Bagley.And funny still that Bagley who was a Gov. Jebb Bush dirty trick employee in Florida before returning home to Utah - the center of America's penny stock fraud and right wing Mormon crime - was removed as an 'editor' of Wikipedia
at first for editing the bio of Vice President Dick Cheney Was he trying to say something bad about Cheney on Wikipeadia ? I bet not - bet he was trying to 'cover up' Ha Ha

In effect both Gary Weiss and his Nemesis Overstock.con's Judd Bagely are both securities and or penny stock scum and each cover up for their respected bosses - Steve Forbes and Patrick Byrne respectively And obviously if Wikipedia is going to allow these scam writers or editors on Wikipedia or the anonymous Irish 'editor' Mantanmoreland who simultaneously claims black decent but appears more interested in certain Jews and Israelis in his writting(Weiss claims to be Jewish)
then in this area of stocks and securitiues that as Mantanmoreland himself states has billions of DOllARS AT STAKE - THEN WIKIPEDIA IS ALLOWING THE FOXES INTO THE HENHOUSE FOR WHATEVER REASONS OF THEIR OWN.
This also explains how my writing and legit links to and about the penny stock fraudster and founder of Steve Forbes(Weiss's employer)connected National Taxpayers Union and all connections between him and NAANSS,etc. were removed and censored

Mantan Moreland
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Mantan Moreland

Born 03 September 1902(1902-09-03)
Monroe, Louisiana
United States of America

Died 28 September 1973 (aged 71)
Hollywood, California
United States of America

Occupation Actor, Comic
Mantan Moreland (3 September 1902 - 28 September 1973) was a comic and actor most popular in the 1930s and 1940s. Some of his roles are now considered to be controversial, as he often played a superstitious, easily frightened manservant, ready to flee at the first sign of danger, somewhat similar to roles played by Stepin Fetchit. However, many consider these roles to be just a minor part of Moreland's prolific career, which included many early all-black films as well as dozens of mainstream comedies, mysteries and horror movies.

Moreland began acting by the time he was an adolescent, reportedly running away to join the circus. By the late 1920s, he had made his way through vaudeville, working with various shows and revues, performing on Broadway and touring Europe. Initially, Moreland appeared in low-budget "race movies" aimed at African-American audiences, but as his comedic talents came to be recognized, he received roles in larger productions.

One thousand innocent bystanders
One sleepy evening this October, Cory Hogan stumbled onto Wikipedia while trawling the web for information on US Vice President Dick Cheney. He read the site's extensive screed on the curmudgeonly veep, and before he knew it, he was inclined to contribute his own thoughts to the discussion. But when he clicked on the "edit this page" tab, he was told he wasn't allowed.

A rather menacing message filled his web browser, announcing that Wikipedia edits were forbidden from his IP address. His address, the message said, was a favorite "open proxy" of Judd Bagley and

Wikipedia bans Traverse Mountain, Utah

Cory Hogan shares his IP range with about 1,000 other homes in Traverse Mountain, Utah, a neighborhood twenty miles south of Salt Lake City, and one of those homes belongs to Judd Bagley. The two men live within two blocks of each other, and they're members of the same church.

When that message turned up on Wikipedia, Hogan's first thought was that Bagley was some sort of shady political henchman for the Vice President of the United States. But the truth is far stranger.

That Traverse Mountain IP address is not an open proxy. It would seem that the address was banned because Judd Bagley has accused Wikipedia's uber-administrators of skewing the contents of four online articles. Yes, just four. But those four articles may sway the fate of billions of dollars spilling through America's stock markets.

When short selling gets naked
Judd Bagley is the head of communications at, the web clearance house based in Salt Lake City, and his boss is the irrepressible Patrick Byrne. Since early 2005, Byrne has waged a very public crusade against a Wall Street trick known as naked short selling. This controversial campaign came to a head in February when Overstock filed a $3.48bn lawsuit against 12 New York brokerage firms, alleging a "massive, illegal stock market manipulation scheme."

For those of you who slept through your school lessons, a short sale is way of making money when the price of a stock goes down. Anticipating a price drop, you borrow shares from someone else and promptly sell them off. Then, once that drop kicks in, you buy the shares back and return them to the original owner.

A naked short sale works much the same way except you dont really borrow the shares. Three days after the sale, when its time to actually deliver shares to the buyer, you fail to do so. Naked shorting isnt always illegal under Securities and Exchange Commission rules, but it is if youre attempting to manipulate stock prices. And Patrick Byrne is sure that such manipulation occurs on a grand scale.

Patrick Byrne

Using this scheme, Byrne claims, nefarious Wall Streeters can eventually drive entire companies out of business. "You can destroy these companies, and when that happens, you don't have to pay the IOUs off," he says. "It's basically a system for being a serial killer of small companies."

In March, Bloomberg Television aired a mini-documentary on naked shorting, and Byrne's views were prominently featured. But for the most part, the mainstream press has painted the Overstock CEO as a raving madman.

"The New York Post ran a picture of me with UFOs coming out of my head," he says. "And CNBC became the I-hate-Patrick-Byrne channel." In fact, he's received much the same treatment from The Register.

One of his most vociferous - and unrelenting - critics is a columnist, book author, and former BusinessWeek reporter named Gary Weiss. If you visit Weiss's blog, you'll see that he spends much of his bandwidth badmouthing Byrne,, and its crusade against naked shorting.

Enter Wikipedia
In late 2005, before he was officially hired by Overstock, Judd Bagley joined Patrick Byrne's crusade. He was working as an online journalist at the time, and that November, he interviewed Byrne for a website he was running called

"I started doing a podcast series interviewing entrepreneurial figures," Bagley says, "and Patrick was the first person I approached."

During the interview, naked shorting was discussed, and Bagley soon agreed to host a PowerPoint presentation that Byrne had put together detailing his views on the subject. "The information he gave me about naked short selling sounded kinda implausible," Bagley explains. "But the journalist in me started digging a little bit to learn more about this thing, and I managed to bump into all the things he predicted I would see."

A few days later, on January 28, 2006, while checking his site's server logs, Bagley noticed that at least one person had accessed this presentation by way of Wikipedia. Visiting the online encyclopedia for the first time, he found that someone had linked to Businessjive from Wikipedia's article on naked shorting - and that someone else had removed the link.

Bagley soon discovered that this person - identified only by the IP address - had made multiple edits to Wikipedia's naked shorting article, and in his opinion, these edits were patently biased. He believed that someone was preventing the article from telling the whole story.
