The main investors of the Doyen Group remain anonymous, except for three people:
- Fettah Tamince, a relative of Turkish President Erdogan, who owns Star Media Group and the hotel chain Rixos (together with Tevfik Arif);
- Erick Thohir, an Indonesian billionaire who bought Inter Milan;
- Tevfik Arif.
In 2013, media tycoon Erick Thohir, Handy Soetedjo and Rosan Roeslani bought 70% of Inter Milan for a reported $400 million.

Until December 2012, Rosan Roeslani had been a Director of Indonesian mining group Bumi plc (he also managed its subsidiary Berau Coal). Bumi is listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Roeslani took $173 million out of Berau, before buying the stake in Inter Milan, and then promised to put it back “by the end of the year”.

In 2013, none other than Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild owned about 15% of Bumi plc.
Rothschild effectively put Bumi together, in partnership with the Indonesian Bakrie family.
Rothschild claimed to be unhappy with the deal and said:
Roeslani only has the funds and freedom to do this because Bumi’s board have failed to take any legal action whatsoever to date against him.

Over here in the Netherlands, the money laundering Doyen Group has gotten negative publicity for manipulating transfers of Ajax Amsterdam and FC Twente.
Twente even got threatened to be degraded (which didn’t go through) and was banned from European competitions for 3 years by the KNVB.
In the Dutch press the affair surrounding Twente has gotten publicity, but nothing has been revealed about the money laundering Doyen Group of the Arif family and its affiliation to Donald Trump.

In 2012, FC Twente bought the Serbian Dusan Tadic from FC Groningen (also from the Netherlands). In 2014, FC Twente made a deal with Doyen Sports Investments. In return for a 5 million Euro “loan”, Doyen obtained part of the transfer rights for 7 Twente-players, including Tadic.
In 2014, Tadic was sold to the English club Southampton for some 13 million Euros - Doyen received 10% of that sum. FC Twente had to pay Tadic’s agent Zoran Pavlovic an additional 3.6 million Euro.

In 2013, FC Twente, made another deal with Represetanciones Internacionales Vijai to buy the Mexican Jesús Corona for 3.5 million Euro from Monterrey. In 2015, Corona was sold for some 12 million Euros to FC Porto, of which Vijai got 60%.
I don’t know which money launderers control Vijai.

In March 2015, FC Twente had to retract its annual financial statement (for 2014-2015) because of irregularities surrounding the transfer of Dusan Tadic to Southampton (in Dutch): https://www.volkskrant.nl/sport/de-crea ... ~a4273514/

Ajax Amsterdam made deals with the British agent Matthew Kay of Doyen to get high transfer sums for 4 youth players by selling them before the end of their contracts (in Dutch): https://nos.nl/artikel/2091602-ajax-bet ... elers.html


In our Brave New World, the Legal system protects the big crooks…
In December 2015, the CAS ordered Sporting Lisbon to pay £12.5 million of the transfer of Marcos Rojo to Manchester United. Plus 75% of any transfer fee over £17 million if Rojo is sold by Manchester United.
Doyen Sports was also behind Manchester City’s £42 million transfer of Eliaquim Mangala: http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/foot ... 87046.html


On 20 January 20 2014, Doyen’s Nelio Lucas celebrated his 35th birthday in the presence of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, CEO of Atlético de Madrid Miguel Angel Gil, AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani and his daughter (that was hired by Doyen), Inter Milan’s sporting director, the directors of English club Fulham, Portuguese side Sporting and Spanish club Sevilla, and the son of the president of Portuguese club Porto as well.
Lucas also had excellent relations with Vincent Labrune, who from 2011 to 2016 was president of the French club Marseille.

On 14 occasions in 2014, 2015, Lucas brought pretty young women to “help with business deals”, the plane tickets paid by his offshore company Vela.

In 2014, Efendi Arif wrote to Lucas about “his” players in that year’s World Cup in Brazil: Mangala, Promes, Defour, Januzaj, Xavi, Falcao, Rojo, Negredo, de Gea, and Neymar.

Doyen Sports owned 60% of the transfer rights in the Moroccan Abdel Barrada. In 2013, Barrada left the Spanish Getafe, for United Arab Emirates side Al-Jazira. The mere 3.35 million Euro Doyen – twice what it paid only 2 years earlier – was considered a disappointment.
The move of the Colombian Radamel Falcao from Atlético Madrid to Monaco in 2013, in which Doyen owned a 33% stake, made a profit of 5.3 million Euro, which was again disappointing.

In 2014, English club Manchester City bought the French Eliaquim Mangala from FC Porto for 45 million Euros, Doyen Sports earned 10 million Euro in the deal, which was 4 times the price they had paid.
Just 5 days later, Lucas arranged for 2 million Euros be transferred to shell company PMCI in Abu Dhabi, labelled as “consultancy”.

Porto defender Sergio de Oliveira got a free transfer by his club Porto. In January 2015, shortly after Doyen Sports had begun representing the player, Porto decided to buy him back with Doyen Sport’s “help”.
Doyen Sports was De Oliveira’s agent, with a 25% stake in the player, bought for 500,000 Euro from Porto with a 300,000 Euro commission.
Because Portuguese law prohibits a person or company to represent more than 1 party, Lucas turned to Fifa-licensed agent Kevin Caruana who signed for the 300,000 Euro-commission (to be paid via Vela). Caruana was paid 2,000 Euro for his services.

In 2014, Porto announced that it had bought Yacine Brahimi for 6.5 million Euro. In reality, Brahimi had cost 9.5 million Euro, of which 8 million Euro was paid by Doyen Sports for 80% in the transfer rights.
Porto paid a commission of 500,000 Euro into the account of Doyen Sports shell company Denos, in Dubai. Because Lucas did not have an agent’s licence, his colleague Juan Manuel Lopez signed the contract.
A year later, on 29 July 2015, Lucas secretly paid 1.5 million Euro for Brahimi, through Denos.
A little more than a month later, Brahimi renegotiated his contract with Porto including the club buying his image rights for 4 million Euros. Lucas received 500,000 Euro in a commission payment from Porto, which was sent into Lucas’s Maltese-registered company Vela via its Liechtenstein bank account.
Vela was also given a mandate for the future sale of Brahimi, with 10% of the transfer rights.

In February 2014, Doyen Sports bought a stake in Adnan Januzaj’s image rights, for 1.5 million Euros.
Januzaj was paid another 500,000 Euro bonus through offshore structures.

Doyen Sports has transferred 10.8 million Euros in secret commissions into the companies Denos, Rixos and PMCI.
When Nelio Lucas was negotiating mining deals in Brazil, Sierra Leone and Angola; he asked Efendi Arif “Do you thing I should bribe them???” to which Efendi answered “Yes bro”: https://theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88 ... Type=story

Rick Gates, Cambridge Analytica, Alfa Bank

Post by Firestarter » Tue Feb 27, 2018 6:42 pm

Richard “Rick” Gates is the third associate of Donald Trump that has pleaded guilty, after former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign official George Papadopoulos – all 3 admitted lying to the FBI.

Gates admitted helping Paul Manafort run a secret scheme to influence American politics on behalf of Ukraine’s then-ruling party, Yanukovych’s Party of Regions, and living the good life from the profits. Gates and Manafort lobbied the US government for the Ukraine, but didn’t register as foreign agents with the Justice Department, even after they were told to register as foreign agents.
Gates said he and Manafort paid the “Hapsburg group” (with former European politicians) more than 2 million Euros to lobby the US for the Ukraine.

On Thursday, Manafort and Gates were accused of laundering more than $30 million in money from Ukraine: https://www.thedailybeast.com/rick-gate ... new-weapon


In March 2007, Manafort and associates set up private equity fund Pericles Emerging Market Partners in the Cayman Islands with as the main investor Rothschild’s associate Oleg Deripaska. Manafort ran the firm with 2 business partners – political consultant Rick Davis and lobbyist Rick Gates.
Around the same time, Manafort established his relationship with Dmytro Firtash.

Deripaska as main investor through the offshore fund Altimax Investments Limited, later succeeded by LP Surf, provided some $19 million.
In April 2008, $18.9 million was transferred to PEM Advisors Limited (located in Cyprus), which loaned the money to another Cyprus legal structure called a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). The money was transferred as a loan to evade taxes. Shares in the SPV would then be transferred to the Manafort-controlled EVO Holdings, which then bought Chorne More through its controlling company, the UK-based Colberg Projects LLP.
According to Rick Gates, PEM transferred $17.8 million to the Ukrainian lawyer Andrey Vityukov, who worked at the company. Pericles’s managers received $7.35 million.

Chorne More was an Odesa holding company for cable and internet providers. Chorne had been founded in the early 2000s by Serhiy Dehtyar, who died under mysterious circumstances in 2004 with a head injury.
According to investigative journalist Olena Vasina, taking over Chorne likely fit into a larger plan by the Party of Regions to assert media control over the city of Odesa.

During the 2013-2014 EuroMaidan Revolution that ousted Yanukovych from the presidency, Manafort left Ukraine.
In 2014, Deripaska dissolved Pericles, at which time the $19 million had “disappeared”: https://www.kyivpost.com/article/conten ... 18137.html



Cambridge Analytica is very popular…
Cambridge Analytica worked on Ted Cruz’s campaign before it was hired to work their magic on the Trump campaign.
By common consensus, Cambridge Analytica is owned by Robert Mercer, but in reality Cambridge is “the US subsidiary of SCL Group” in which the British Iranian multimillionaire Vincent Tchenguiz is the largest shareholder.
The parent company of Cambridge Analytica – SCL Group – was also behind the successful Brexit campaign.

Cambridge Analytica is entirely owned by SCL Elections, owned by executive Alexander Nix. From shortly after its inception in 2005 until June 2015, the largest of the 15 shareholders of the UK Strategic Communications Laboratories Ltd. (in 2015 renamed to SCL Group) was Tchenguiz.
On 11 November 2006, a new director was appointed by Tchenguiz’ — Julian David Wheatland. Even today, a year after Tchenguiz divested his shares, SCL Group Chairman is still Tchenguiz’s employee Julian Wheatland.

Vincent Tchenguiz also has connections to Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash.
Tchenguiz used the same Guernsey holding company, Wheddon Ltd., to invest both in SCL Group and another privately held UK business - Zander Group Ltd.
In 2005-2006, Tchenguiz invested in Zander through his Vantania Holdings Ltd.; on 11 September 2015, Vantania transferred its shares to Wheddon Ltd.
From 2006 until 2011, the largest single shareholding in Zander Group, 28% of the shares, was owned by a Cyprus company called Spadi Trading. And Spadi was owned by Group DF, in the British Virgin Islands, of the Ukrainian money launderer Dmitry Firtash. It’s improbable that Tchenguiz wouldn’t know, as Zander Group’s chairman, is Raymond Asquith, an English peer who is also an executive of Group DF.

In March 2011, the brothers Tchenguiz were arrested as they were suspected to be guilty of a bankruptcy fraud involving the Icelandic bank Kaupthing. Just before its collapse, Kaupthing’s loans to the Tchenguiz brothers totalled 40% of its capital. It has been charged that Kaupthing was effectively looted by the Tchenguiz brothers (who controlled the bank). The Tchenguiz brothers were acquitted as in our Brave New World the legal system protects the big criminals.
Kaupthing’s largest shareholder, Meidur (now called Exista), owned 25% of its shares, had ties to Alfa Bank.
Trump adviser Richard Burt was a senior advisor to Alfa Bank: http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-an ... ian-access
(archived here: http://archive.is/RbAFN)


The Trump administration recently awarded Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, London-based SCL Group Ltd, with the contract for the US State Department’s “Global Engagement Center”.
SCL Group will use its psychological profiling and data manipulation techniques as part of a “counter-radicalization” campaign directed at young men in other countries who could be radicalised into joining ISIS…
Since Congress has eliminated barriers between access to data profiles of foreign nationals and US citizens, it is likely that Cambridge Analytica and the SCL Group will have access to personal data of both Americans and non-Americans.

Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, formerly of Mercer-owned media outlet — Breitbart News —joined the Board of Cambridge Analytica. Trump Advisor Kellyanne Conway also has close ties to Robert Mercer.

Cambridge Analytica had the ability to micro-target Facebook users. They could reach into the exact zip codes and precincts for the Trump Campaign.
Literally within hours of the WikiLeaks dumbs that started on 22 July 2016, the Trump Campaign was sending micro-targeted messages to Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts. It is unlikely that Cambridge Analytica could be able to analyse this mass of data and pick out “smoking gun” segments for transmission to potential Trump voters so quickly without advance knowledge.
Cambridge Analytica and SCL have financial ties to Alfa Bank, and there could also be a role for Trump advisor Richard Burt, who sat on Alfa’s senior advisory board.
Maybe the communication between the Trump organization server, Spectrum Health and Alfa Bank was to transmit the coming WikiLeaks dump and/or hacked voting records to target individual voters.

In early 2017, during the transition period and after Trump’s inauguration, Cambridge Analytica had a series of meetings with Trump and his team.
The subject was how Cambridge Analytica could continue “managing public opinion” regarding the policies of the Trump Administration. At the same time, Cambridge Analytica discussed with the Trump Administration on how to promote the real estate “products” of the Trump Organization.

Maybe somebody will agree with me that it’s suspicious that FBI Director James Comey send his “October Surprise” letter to Congress about “reopening” the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
One could argue that the at that time ongoing investigation into the communication between Trump, Spectrum Health and the Alfa Bank was of more significance: http://blog.mccallionlaw.com/fbi-invest ... analytica/

Alfa, Wilbur Ross, Sibur and Putin

Post by Firestarter » Thu Mar 01, 2018 4:05 pm

First a little more on the bankrupted Kaupthing Bank, in which Meidur, now called Exista owned a 25% stake. A controlling share in Exista was held by the Bakkavör holding company of Agust and Lydur Gudmun.
In 2005, the 2 owners of Exista were Quenon Investment Limited and Shapburg Limited. Shapburg Limited also, together with the Russian Alfa Bank, owned a stake in the Luxembourg-registered Alfa Finance Holdings: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exista

Many of the largest loans were to the brothers Robert and Vincent Tchenguiz, their former brother-in-law Vivian Imerman, Simon Halabi, Nick and Christian Candy, Peter Shalson and Aneel Mussarat. Robert Tchenguiz was a major shareholder in Exista and the second largest borrower from Kaupthing, with “loans” of €1.37 billion.
The fourth largest investor in Kaupthing, Kevin Stanford, with 30.9 million shares “loaned” a total of €519 million.

Former head of the Finnish financial regulator, Kaarlo Jannari, explained the scheme like this:
In most cases, the assets pledged as collateral for these loans are shares in the companies in which these customers had invested the funds borrowed... My judgment is that their behaviour in this regard has been very imprudent.
https://www.theguardian.com/business/20 ... ernet-leak
(archived here: http://archive.is/2Z1iN)


In September 2002, Alfa Bank formed a strategic partnership with Gazprom, to provide credit to Gazprom.
This includes a joint position on the indebted Gazprom subsidiary, SIBUR. Alfa Bank agreed to take over SIBUR’s debts: https://alfabank.com/media/news/2002/09/19/
(archived here: http://archive.is/IGA18)

Sibur involves an interesting story in which sanctions boost the profits of the stake of Rothschild agent, US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, in Navigator.

Deputy Chairman of Sibur, Kirill Shamalov (married to Putin’s “alleged” daughter Katerina Tikhonova) holds a 3.9% stake in the firm. Two other major Sibur shareholders - Leonid Mikhelson and Gennady Timchenko - are under some form of US sanctions. According to the US Treasury, in 2014 Putin held investments in Timchenko’s oil-trading firm.
Kirill Shamalov himself is not sanctioned, but his father, Nikolai Shamalov, one of Putin’s oldest friends from St Petersburg, is. Kirill Shamalov drastically increased his holding in Sibur in September 2014 after “borrowing” $1.3 billion from the state-controlled Gazprombank. His brother, Yury Shamalov, is the bank’s deputy chairman.
In 2017, Kirill Shamalov reduced his 21.4% stake in the company, which was worth about $2.85 billion (after borrowing $1.3 billion 3 years before), to 3.9%. Shamalov sold to Sibur’s main shareholder, Leonid Mikhelson (according to Forbes, Russia’s richest man).

Sibur itself is not under sanctions, which gives it a head start on its competitors that are under sanctions.

Navigator Holdings earns millions a year transporting oil and gas for Sibur.
Wilbur Ross first invested in Navigator Holdings in 2011. In the summer of 2012, WL Ross took control of Navigator by buying a further $110 million stake from the collapsed Lehman Brothers bank. Ross is a shareholder in a Cayman Islands investment vehicle WLR Recovery Associates IV DSS AIV GP, which in turn own 2 other WLR Cayman firms, one of which is a shareholder in Navigator.
In 2016, 31.5% was still held by entities in which Ross has a stake. In 2017, the WLR stake in Navigator was worth about $179 million, but it is not clear how much is held by Ross personally. When he joined the Trump administration, Ross declared holdings worth up to $10 million.

Ross’s press secretary, James Rockas, claimed the Navigator-Sibur deal was signed in February 2012, before Ross joined the Navigator board. Sibur’s annual report shows, the deal was signed in March. Ross filed ethics forms that his start date at Navigator had been January 2012.
In 2012-2014, Wilbur Ross was a board member of Navigator. During that period Navigator increased its business with Sibur. The energy firm accounted for 9.1% of Navigator's total revenues in 2015, compared with 5.3% in 2014. Sibur has provided Navigator with $68 million (£49 million) in revenue since 2014.
Navigator went public on the New York stock exchange, its share price buoyed by the Sibur deal. Ross more than doubled his investment.

After Ross left Navigator's board in November 2014, his seat was taken by Ross group partner Wendy Teramoto until 2017. Teramoto resigned to join the Trump administration as Ross’s chief of staff.
Navigator doubled the ships transporting for Sibur to 4 in 2017, as Ross joined Trump’s administration.
On the night Ross was nominated as commerce secretary, he went to a restaurant in New York and said to the Navigator Holdings CEO:
Your interest is aligned to mine. The US economy will grow, and Navigator will be a beneficiary.

In May 2014, a Russian government fund invested $700 million in the Ust-Luga port, where Sibur has exclusive rights to ship liquefied gas.
In December 2015, Sibur received a $1.75 billion state loan at a third of the market rate.

Ross is the wealthiest member of Trump’s cabinet with an estimated $2.9 billion.
In 2014, Ross led the €1 billion takeover of the Bank of Cyprus. The billionaire Russian industrialist Viktor Vekselberg invested in the bank takeover. Vekselberg was present at the December 2015 dinner in Moscow for RT, where Trump’s future national security adviser Michael Flynn and Jill Stein were photographed at the same table as Putin.
In the senior leadership team of the Bank of Cyprus, Ross appointed Vladimir Strzhalkovsky, a former KGB colleague of Putin, who also sits on the board of several state corporations.
In 2015, when Ross was vice-chairman, its Russia-based businesses were sold off to Artem Avetisyan, a Russian businessman who had been appointed by Putin to chair an agency to strengthen ties between the Kremlin and business.
See from left to right – Blavatnik, Mikhail Fridman, Lord John Browne and Vekselberg, February 2003.

Navigator vessels also carried out extensive business with the Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA. Trump imposed sanctions on PDVSA in August.
Some transactions through the Bank of Cyprus involved Paul Manafort: https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/n ... ise-papers

Kushner, Qatar and $509 million

Post by Firestarter » Sat Mar 03, 2018 5:53 pm

I never quite understood why suddenly the great ally of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and their state network Al Jazeera, became the target of a blockade...

Charles Kushner — Jared's father and the head of Kushner Companies, the family firm of which Jared remains a part-owner — discussed the refinancing of 666 Fifth Avenue with Qatari Finance Minister Ali Sharif Al Emadi about a month before the “diplomatic assault” started. They couldn’t reach an agreement.
the failure to broker the deal would be followed only a month later by a Middle Eastern diplomatic row in which Jared Kushner provided critical support to Qatar's neighbors. Led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, a group of Middle Eastern countries, with Kushner's backing, led a diplomatic assault that culminated in a blockade of Qatar.

Robert Weissman, president of the watchdog group Public Citizen, thinks that Jared shouldn’t be allowed to use the US government to “negotiate” a better deal for personal gain:
Jared Kushner must resign. His business entanglements are corrupting our government and potentially endangering national security.
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/ ... -step-down
(archived here: http://archive.is/ybBwc)

Another nice affair is that Kushner Companies got more than $500 million in “loans” from 2 companies, shortly after meetings between Jared Kushner with high executives of those companies at the White House...

After Joshua Harris, co-founder of Apollo Global Management met Jared - in November, Apollo lent Kushner Companies $184 million to refinance a Chicago skyscraper.
After Jared met Michael Corbat, chief executive of Citigroup, last spring to discuss “financial and trade policy” - Citigroup swiftly lent Kushner Companies and another partner $325 million to finance Brooklyn office buildings.

Of course Jared is a part owner of the family corporation, but that doesn’t mean that he would try to get special benefits...
That’s what a spokesman for Jared Kushner's attorney wants us to believe - Jared "has taken no part of any business, loans, or projects with or for" Kushner Companies since starting his position in the Trump administration: https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/ ... -top-execs

Ron & Rand Paul – Richard Burt, Kissinger

Post by Firestarter » Tue Mar 06, 2018 5:37 pm

According to the Rotschild controlled media, the idea that the Rothschild family is in control of the world is preposterous.
It really is amazing that you can take a major bank or important politician and find direct links to Rothschild. You don’t even have to check the complete family, just Baron Jacob Rotschild, his son Nathaniel, and cousin Evelyn and wife Lynn Forester de Rothschild will do...

There are some people who claim to have lost faith in politics that still believe in the crooked Ron Paul (Texas representative from 1976-1977, 1979-1985 and 1997-2013) and his even corrupter son Rand Paul (Kentucky Senator from 2011 till now).
Once again one of “my” threads – on Hitler’s links to the Zionists - has been removed from the publicly viewable Ronpaulforums.com and put behind a password in the “Hot topics” section of the forum: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewto ... f=7&t=1340

I’ll start with the previously mentioned associate of Henry Kissinger and Nathaniel “Nat” Rotschild - Richard Burt. In 2014, Burt served as an unpaid foreign policy advisor for Rand Paul's campaign for president.
The chain of command of Rand Paul’s national team includes foreign policy advisers like former ambassador Richard Burt and former State Department official Lorne Craner: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... story.html

Lorne Craner, is a former staffer for Rothschild puppet John McCain, he was also a Bush administration official.
Craner got to know Paul back in 2012, when the Egyptian government arrested several IRI employees, including Sam LaHood (son of former transportation secretary Ray LaHood).
In 2016, Craner again joined Rand Paul’s potential presidential campaign.

In his 2012 book, Government Bullies, Rand Paul praised IRI and its Democratic counterpart, the National Democratic Institute.
This stands in stark contrast to the writings and speeches of his father Ron Paul. As far back as 2004, when Viktor Yanukovych was ousted as President of the Ukrainiane, Paul criticised NED and its subsidiaries for their role in Ukraine. The Orange revolution that got rid of President Yanukovych was orchestrated by the same SCL Group, Cambridge Analytica that made Brexit and President Trump a reality.
Rand Paul has repeatedly flip-flopped on Ukraine, sometimes friendly and at other times threatening to the Russians.

In January 2014, Rand Paul made a speech at the pro-Russian Center for the National Interest (CNI) where his soon-to-be-advisor Richard Burt is an Ambassador and Henry Kissinger is Honorary Chairman: https://www.thedailybeast.com/is-rand-p ... total-dove
(archived here: http://archive.is/im27p)

Rand Paul has consulted NWO proponents like Zbigniew Brzezinksi and Henry Kissinger: http://libertyfight.com/2015/rand_paul_ ... inger.html

I have earlier posted about the links of the Libertarian, Tea Party movement’s affiliation with big oil, where Rothschild controls some (or all) of the major oil corporations.
Libertarianism is an offshoot of the John Birch society that was founded in 1958. Fred C. Koch (founder of Koch industries) was among its founding members: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewto ... =110#p3534

Both Ron and Rand Paul have been supported by Bilderberg member Peter Thiel.
Peter Thiel was also a major donor to Donald Trump’s campaign and, together with George Soros and Goldman Sachs, funded the Cadre investment firm of Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Kushner “forgot” to disclose that he is indebted for more than 1 billion dollar from 20 investors, including Blackstone Group, Bank of America, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank and Royal Bank of Scotland.

Peter Thiel, is a cofounder of PayPal. Some of the companies in which Thiel has invested - Palantir, Facebook, SpaceX, Airbnb, Zenefits, Lyft and Founders Fund: http://www.theverge.com/2016/11/16/1365 ... r-facebook

Arguably the corruption in the Kingdoms Britain and the Netherlands is even worse.
Nat Rothschild was in the Bullingdon Club with David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson.
The Dutch PM for years now, Mark Rutte, studied history in Leiden with now King Willem-Alexander.

Kushner, Trump, Rybolovlev in Croatia

Post by Firestarter » Sun Mar 11, 2018 5:38 pm

In August 2016, when the presidential campaign was running smoothly, husband and wife Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were on “holiday” in Croatia. Javanka were pictured on board the $200 million yacht the Rising Sun of billionaire David Geffen.
David Geffen was one of the earliest supporters of Barack Obama and donated to both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the primary.

They later went sightseeing in Dubrovnik with Rupert “the FOX” Murdoch’s ex-wife Wendi Deng and Brian and wife Veronica Grazer.
Image

After Geffen joined Instagram in 2016, one of the first photos he posted was with Karlie Kloss, the 24-year-old supermodel girlfriend of Joshua Kushner (Jared's brother).
Disney CEO Bob Iger is another Hillary Clinton supporter that frequently enjoys time on the Rising Sun: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -boat.html

It’s a bit strange that Jared and Ivanka were on a boat with a fervent Hillary Clinton supporter when the campaign was in full swing, but the following information is even more interesting.

Dmitry Rybolovlev bought Donald Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida mansion for $95 million in 2008. During the campaign his private jet was repeatedly spotted where Trump’s private jet arrived.
In March 2017, a spokesperson for Rybolovlev said it was "pure coincidence" that his and Trump’s planes were parked next to each other in North Carolina and that Rybolovlev "has no connection whatsoever to Mr. Trump or his team of advisers".

In one of those strange coincidences, none other than Dmitry Rybolovev’s yacht and private jet were in Croatia when Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were there on August 10-13 2016.
Dmitry Rybolovlev’s yacht Anna was even in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

From Dubrovnik, Ivanka and Kushner went to Hvar, which is an island about 3-4 hours by boat. While Croatian media reported them in Dubrovnik on 11 and 12 August, Ivanka and American media waited until August 14 to post photos and stories on this trip.
Were they trying to hide something?

Another interesting Trump-connection is that in March 2017 Rybolovlev’s yacht was photographed in the British Virgin Islands next to the Sea Owl yacht of Trump backer Robert Mercer.
Mercer also funded Breitbart News of Steve Bannon and Cambridge Analytica that orchestrated the Trump campaign and Brexit: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/3 ... ed-Kushner

Deutsche, Alfa, Mercer, VEB, Rybolovlev, Kushner

I’ve finally found a “real” story in 3 parts with some excellent dot connecting. Maybe it’s too long though.
It starts with Deutsche Bank, but there’s much more…

Deutsche Bank helped US clients to report approximately $29.3 billion in bogus transactions on their tax returns. This allowed them to evade some $5.9 billion in income taxes. Deutsche Bank also sold “basket options” which allowed clients to evade taxes.
Between 2000 and 2012, Renaissance Technology (RenTec) purchased 29 basket options with a notional value of $46 billion and profits totalling $15.9 billion. The co-CEO of RenTec, billionaire Robert Mercer, contributed over $20 million to Republican candidates during the 2016 election campaign (and was one of the biggest supporters to Trump’s campaign). Robert Mercer also funded Breitbart and the SCL Group (parent company of Cambridge Analytica).
In 2016, Dmitry Firtash was a board member of SCL when Mike Flynn was a paid consultant. Cambridge Analytica employed Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway.

The Global Laundromat involved Commercial Bank of San Francisco (associated with Boris Avramovich Goldstein and Irakaly “Ike” Kaveladze) and Bank of New York (associated with Bruce Rappaport and Peter Berlin).

US Attorney Preet Bharara investigated (amongst others) several cases against Deutsche Bank.
After Bharara was fired, on 3 January 2018 Geoffrey Berman was appointed Interim US Attorney for the SDNY. Berman was a partner at the law firm that employed Rudy Giuliani.

In 2015, Deutsche settled the case for rigging the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) for $2.5 billion with the US Department of Justice (DoJ) through a deferred prosecution agreement: https://whowhatwhy.org/2018/01/08/deuts ... an-part-1/

Donald Trump’s relationship with Deutsche Bank began in 1998 when he “loaned” $125 million.
Trump’s wealth manager at Deutsche Bank, Rosemary Vrablic, also counted husband and wife Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump under her clients. Vrablic was even invited to attend the inauguration.
Trump’s 2017 disclosure form contained 2 Deutsche Bank accounts, which are worth between $100,000 and $10 million.

Part of the $10 billion in mirror trades through Deutsche Bank’s Moscow office involved money from Putin associates and childhood friends Arkady and Boris Rotenberg.
The Rotenberg brothers have a long association with Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash, who has long-time ties to Paul Manafort.

One favoured recipient of Deutsche Bank “loans” was giant telecommunications company VimpelCom (VIP), recently renamed VEON. Headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands it’s the sixth-largest mobile network operator in the world with 214 million subscribers.
It is listed on the NYSE and part of the Alfa Group of Mikhail M. Fridman and Pyotr Aven.
According to a 2 October 2016 report, Robert Mercer’s RenTec bought 866,100 shares of VIP.

In 2008, Vneshekonombank (VEB) intended to repay a syndicate of Western banks. VEB’s chairman at the time was Vladimir Putin.
The largest loan at the time was $4.5 billion to Rusal, owned and run by billionaire Oleg V. Deripaska and Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild.
Separately, Fridman also “loaned” $2 billion letter from VEB, which prevented Deutsche Bank from attempting to seize 44% of VimpelCom.

Deutsche Bank had a good relationship with Anatoliy Chubais — minister in Boris Yeltsin’s cabinet and architect of privatisation.
On 28 April 2006, Deutsche Bank and VEB signed a “cooperation agreement”.

In 2012, Fridman formed a $1 billion real estate partnership with New York magnate Jack Rosen (head of the American Jewish Congress).
Fridman’s son and daughter have attended Yale University.
The Alfa Group had a correspondent relation with a small bank called Krainiy Sever, which was linked to the Prevezon forfeiture case.
The FBME Bank was also involved in laundering the so-called Magnitsky funds associated with Hermitage Capital and Bill Browder. Nikolai Gorokov represented Sergei Magnitsky’s family.
Gorokov fell from a window in Moscow about a month before he would testify in the Prevezon case.
Strategies used to launder money involved buying luxury yachts; ownership interests in professional soccer, hockey and/or basketball teams; investments through shell companies into real estate in UK and the US.

In November 2014, former CEO of Deutsche Bank, Josef Ackerman, became chairman of the Bank of Cyprus. This was proposed by its major shareholder Wilbur Ross. Josef Ackerman is also on the board of Renova.
The second-largest shareholder of Bank of Cyprus at this time was Viktor Vekselberg, another Russian oligarch and head of the Renova Corp. Vekselberg is also in business with Mikhail Fridman in AAR. Vekselberg sold his Aluminium company to Oleg Deripaska, who turned it into Rusal.
Vekselberg is also in business with the Russian born with American citizenship Len Blavatnik.

Another large shareholder of the Bank of Cyprus is Dmitry Rybolovlev, who was also in business with Robert Mercer as co-CEO of the Hedge Fund RenTec.
Rybolovlev is best known for buying a mansion from Trump in 2008 for $95 million (by common consensus above the market price). He was also a major contributor to Trump’s campaign. Rybolovlev’s yacht was parked next to Mercer’s during the campaign.

Reportedly Paul Manafort had opened 15 separate accounts at the Cyprus Popular Bank, which was later taken over by the Bank of Cyprus.
Two Trump companies are registered in Cyprus. Trump’s 2017 financial disclosure form “forgot” to mention these companies: https://whowhatwhy.org/2018/01/15/deuts ... an-part-2/
(archived here: http://archive.is/bxL3a)


Jared Kushner disclosed that he and his mother have ”loaned” up to $25 million from Deutsche Bank, but “forgot” to disclose the $285 million refinancing from Deutsche Bank in October 2016.
In 2015, Kushner’s company purchased the former New York Times Building in Times Square from an entity called Africa-Israel Investments, headed by Russian oligarch Lev Leviev.
Leviev was a business partner of the Russian Prevezon Holdings that was accused of money laundering by the DoJ. Prevezon was represented by Natalia Veselnitskaya and got off with a “slap on the wrist” of $6 million.
Leviev told the New York Times that he was a “true friend” of Vladimir Putin, largely through his work with the Moscow Jewish Museum, the Russian Jewish Congress and his close ties to Russia’s Chief Chabad Rabbi, Berel Lazar.

Everybody involved has denied that any information on Hillary was delivered, even claiming that the whole meeting was a complete waste of time.
Instead the story has been pushed that Natalia Veselnitskaya was only interested in the US Magnitsky Act that was passed in 2012 to sanction high-level Russian officials. Supposedly Veselnitskaya also spoke about adoption rules for Russian children.
I had not found out yet what the 9 June 2016 meeting with attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was all about (most media claim this was about dirt on Hillary Clinton)...
Kushner had promised to recuse himself from any case involving Deutsche Bank. It has been reported that Prevezon and its partners “loaned” $90 million from a “big European financial institution”; court records show this was Deutsche Bank.
Can we hold it against Kushner that he didn’t know that Veselnitskaya represented Prevezon Holdings in the money laundering case that also involved Deutsche Bank?
Maybe I’m the only one to think that this matter was discussed at this meeting...

Kushner also “forgot” to disclose that in December 2016 he met at Trump Tower with Sergei Gorkov, head of the sanctioned Russian bank VEB, who was trained by the FSB (the current name for the KGB).
Also in December 2016, UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nayan met Kushner and Steve Bannon in an undisclosed meeting.
On 11 January 2017, Erik Prince, brother of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, at the suggestion of Bin Zayed, met covertly with Kirill Dmitriev, head of Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and formerly of Goldman Sachs, in the Seychelles. RDIF’s parent company is VEB, and both RDIF and VEB are under US sanctions. Mohammed bin Zayed and Alexander Mashkevich were also in the Seychelles at this time.
On 17 January, Anthony Scaramucci, Trump senior advisor, met head of RDIF, Kirill Dmitriev, in Davos, Switzerland. Dmitriev is also under sanctions.

Trasta Komercbanka was a Latvian-located bank that played a prominent role in the Prevezon forfeiture case and the so-called Global Laundromat. Trasta Komercbanka was co-owned by Igors Buimisters and Ivan Fursin.
Fursin is a former member of the Russian Parliament for the “Party of Regions” and junior partner at Ukraine’s RosUkrEnergo of Dmitry Firtash. Firtash and Fursin also own the Ukrainian Nadra Bank and Misto Bank.
Fursin has also been reported as a senior figure in the Semion Mogilevich crime organisation: https://whowhatwhy.org/2018/02/01/deuts ... an-part-3/

SCL, Rybolovlev, Tillerson, Pompeo, Haspel

Post by Firestarter » Tue Mar 13, 2018 5:34 pm

In one of those strange coincidences, on 22/23 December the private jets of both Oleg Vladimirovich Deripaska and Dmitry Rybolovlev arrived in Miami.
At the same time President Donald Trump was entertaining guests at his Mar-a-Lago: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/1 ... oincidence

There are lots of rumours that Russians interfered with the US Presidential elections, but there is no real mystery on who rigged the elections.
SCL (the parent company of Cambridge Analytica) has specialised in behaviour modifying strategies including election rigging. Besides the Trump campaign, SCL has worked for Ted Cruz and successfully made Brexit happen.
SCL has been supported by amongst others Robert Mercer, Steve Bannon, Rex Tillerson, and Michael Flynn. SCL is headquartered in London, England (so not Russia).

In 2004, Strategic Communication Laboratories Ltd. Orchestrated the Orange Revolution in the Ukraine, which used internet to make it happen.
Orange, the colour of corruption, slavery and genocide...

SCL once advertised their product with: the OpCentre “can override all national radio and TV broadcasts in time of crisis”: https://medium.com/textifire/scl-groups ... 368d7c3672


Another one fired for a distraction?!?
President Donald Trump on Tuesday unceremoniously fired Secretary of State, former CEO of ExxonMobil Rex Tillerson by Tweeting:
Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!
According to a State Department spokesman, Tillerson was unaware of the reason for being fired when Trump made his announcement.

CIA director Pompeo will replace him: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03 ... ompeo.html

Trump has named Gina Haspel as the new director of the CIA. Haspel was Pompeo’s deputy and will become the first woman to serve as CIA director.
From 2003 to 2005, Gina Haspel was a senior official overseeing the top-secret CIA torture program RDI (Rendition, Detention, and Interrogation) that included waterboarding, sleep deprivation, and squeezing into coffins of terror suspects. RDI also kidnapped suspects and delivered them to third-party countries to do the dirty work.

In 2002, Haspel was present at a CIA black site in Thailand when Abu Zubaydah and al-Nashiri were tortured. The torture of Zubaydah was especially horrible and included waterboarding 83 times. At one time he appeared to be dead and doctors had to “revive” him. Because of the brutal abuse, Zubaydah lost sight in his left eye.
In 2005, Haspel and her superior Jose Rodriguez decided to destroy the videotapes of the interrogations of Zubaydah and al-Nashiri to prevent Congress from seeing them.

In 2009, President Obama ordered the closure of the black sites, where torture (in violation with the Geneva Convention) was common: https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-des ... -site-past


After a yearlong “investigation”, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have completed a draft report concluding there was no collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia.
Texas Rep. Mike Conaway announced on Monday the report will now be shared with Democrats:
We found no evidence of collusion.
We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings. But only Tom Clancy or Vince Flynn or someone else like that could take this series of inadvertent contacts with each other, or meetings or whatever, and weave that into sort of a fiction page-turner, spy thriller.
The report will blame officials in President Barack Obama's administration for a "lackluster" response and look at leaks from the intelligence community to the media.
The report is also expected to turn the subject of collusion to the Clinton campaign, saying THE dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele was designed by the Democrats to hurt Trump.

Conaway said there will be a second report dealing with the “credibility” of the intelligence assessment.
The top Democrat on the intelligence panel, California Rep. Adam Schiff, suggested that wrapping up the probe was to protect Trump and called the development a "tragic milestone" and said history would judge them harshly.

The congressional investigations are separate from “special counsel” Robert Mueller's probe, which is likely to take much longer: https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2018/0 ... gress.html

Rothschild, Mandelson, Deripaska, Alcoa

Post by Firestarter » Sun Mar 18, 2018 5:15 pm

I’ve found a story that involves Nat Rothschild, Lord Mandelson, Oleg Deripaska, Alcoa, EU corruption and £500 million.
There are also a few cover-up stories, and the original Daily Mail article was deleted from the internet. Many people will probably find the (second) story of Oleg Deripaska on a yacht with a prostitute from Belarus more interesting.

On 24 May 2010, the Daily Mail reported about a meeting in January 2005, to which Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild invited his good friend Peter Mandelson (at the time the European Union's Trade Commissioner, also architect of “New Labour”, former close adviser to Tony Blair, Business Secretary in Gordon Brown’s Cabinet and a “Lord”) with Oleg Deripaska. This meeting had first been made public in 2008.
Rothschild and Mandelson flew from Switzerland to Moscow in a private jet belonging to Deripaska's close adviser. Because inviting Mandelson to this meeting had not been prepared, he didn’t even have a visa. Rusal’s head of security, a former KGB officer, simply arranged this.
If I understand correctly the 2 sources for this story are a “friend” of Alcoa agent Victor Dahdaleh (worth £8-9 billion) and a “former Rusal executive”.

In January 2005, Deripaska was dining with 2 close associates: CEO of his Basic Element holding company Gulzhan Moldazhanova and Rothschild’s Canadian friend and business partner Peter Munk.
They were accompanied by 3 senior executives from the American aluminium giant Alcoa - chairman Alain Belda, vice-president Barbara Jeremiah and head of communications Jake Siewert (formerly Press Secretary to President Clinton).
Alcoa and Rusal were negotiating the sale of 2 Russian aluminium plants for £250 million each.

According to a source, Alcoa would only go through with the sale if the tariffs would go down. Was Peter Mandelson at this meeting to confirm they would?!
On 31 January 2005, less than 24 hours after the Moscow dinner, the Rusal-Alcoa deal was closed.
A couple of months after this meeting, the billionaire Dahdaleh donated £15,000 to Mandelson.
Mandelson’s EU spokesman stated that they had only met “at a few social gatherings in 2006 and 2007”, and never discussed aluminium.
Mandelson had earlier been spotted with Deripaska in Moscow in October 2004.

Over the next 4 years, Mandelson’s EU Trade Commission in Brussels made a series of decisions on tariffs that benefitted those present at the dinner.
In December 2005, the tariff on Russian aluminium imports was cancelled, to the benefit of Alcoa's new plants.
In May 2007, the duty on imports of unwrought Russian aluminium was cut from 7.5% to 6%, which benefitted Rusal.
In January 2009, the EU quietly gave Russia a 3% discount on the import duty for rolled aluminium products.

In 2009, a specialist metal industry journal reported how beneficial this was to Alcoa:
In Europe, the company benefits from a preferential import duty introduced on January 1 for rolled aluminium from Russia.
Import duty on aluminium flat-rolled products is 7.5 per cent, but Russian imports are taxed at 4.5 per cent. This is undermining the position of EU and British producers.
This caused dumping cheap aluminium on the European market, forcing at least 4 British factories to the ground. Alcoa closed its South Wales aluminium rolling plant (300 jobs lost). In 2008, a Welsh plant at Rogerstone shut down (another 400 jobs), and plants at Falkirk and Glasgow were also closed: https://centurean2.wordpress.com/2010/0 ... tish-jobs/
(archived here: http://archive.is/DJOel)


Nat Rothschild also sat on the international advisory board of the world's largest gold producer Barrick Gold owned by the Canadian Peter Munk. Munk has invested heavily in Rothschild's Atticus hedge fund and also sat on the international advisory board of Rusal.
Deripaska, Munk and Rothschild are also partners in developing a resort near Tivat in Montenegro. In early 2008, Deripaska was the largest private employer in Montenegro after acquiring a state-owned aluminium company.
Mandelson would be instrumental in securing a bilateral EU trade agreement with... Montenegro.

Rothschild sued the Daily Mail for libel over the previous article and (surprisingly) lost in 2012.
This may have something to do with the fact that in the law suit it emerged that after the dinner in Moscow in January 2005, Rothschild, Deripaska, Mandelson and Peter Munk (was he also in Moscow...) boarded Deripaska’s private jet and travelled to Siberia.
In Siberia, they stayed at Deripaska’s country house and visited several industrial sites. See from left to right: Sebastian Taylor, Peter Munk, Nat Rothschild, Oleg Deripaska, and Peter Mandelson (at a hydro-electric plant).
Image

The Judge that ruled on the case, Tugendhat, conluded that Rothschild:
had not been entirely candid throughout the different stages of the case, or in evidence.

Mr Rothschild states that he took Lord Mandelson on the trip as a friend and not for any business reason.
I cannot accept that the position was as simple as that ... I do not accept that there is a clear line between the business and the personal sides of Mr Rothschild’s relationship with Mr Deripaska.
They have very extensive business relationships. When asked about this, Mr Rothschild gave what I regard as quite unrealistic answers.
That dinner was not recreational. Nor was it private in the sense of being part of his private life.

Mr Rothschild’s conduct was inappropriate in a number of respects.
By facilitating the development of a relationship between Mr Deripaska and Lord Mandelson, Mr Rothschild was, in my judgment, conferring a benefit on, and seeking to please, both Mr Deripaska and Lord Mandelson.

So far as Lord Mandelson was concerned, the benefit was the trip and the hospitality. So far as Mr Deripaska was concerned, it was a relationship with the EU Trade Commissioner.
In my judgment, that conduct foreseeably brought Lord Mandelson’s public office and personal integrity into disrepute and exposed him to accusations of conflict of interest, and it gave rise to the reasonable grounds to suspect that Lord Mandelson had engaged in improper discussions with Mr Deripaska about aluminium.
they probably talked about aluminium. There are photos of their party wearing Rusal’s jackets and safety helmets on their visit to the smelter, and standing with a guide, to whom they appear to be listening.



According to Rothschild, Mandelson had only visited the Sayanogorsk smelter for a “nanosecond”, which defense was dismissed by the Judge.
See Peter Munk, Mandelson, Deripaska and Nat Rothschild at the Siberian smelter.
Image

After the visit to Siberia, Mandelson flew back to Brussels in Rothschild’s private jet, while Rothschild, Deripaska and Munk flew on to Kyrgyzstan to meet its president.

In September 2008, the Rothschild-Mandelson-Deripaska threesome first drew public attention, when Mandelson visited Corfu. They were joined by Bullingdon alumnus (and then Shadow Chancellor) George Osborne and Tory fund-raiser Andrew Feldman.
On Corfu, the Rothschild family has a villa. Mandelson was a guest for 3 nights on Oleg Deripaska’s yacht.
There was an earlier cover-up attempt by Rothschild, when he claimed that at this occasion Osborne had asked for a £50,000 donation from Deripaska. Rothschild made these claims after a newspaper reported that Mandelson had made some negative comments on then PM, Gordon Brown.

Lord Mandelson was appointed EU Trade Commissioner on 22 November 2004. On 23 November, the EU announced a review of the Sayanal, Siberia aluminium plant (that was also visited by Mandelson in 2005).
Since Mandelson left politics, following Labour’s 2010 general election defeat, he has bought an £8 million London mansion and established a company in which he exploits the contacts he made during his years of “public service”: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... grity.html
(archived here: http://archive.is/0P2z1)


In early August 2016, during the US presidential campaign, Oleg Deripaska and the deputy Russian prime minister, Sergei Prikhodko, took a pleasure yacht trip off the coast of Norway.
To increase their enjoyment, they invited several prostitutes, including Anastasia Vashukevich of Belarus (a.k.a. Nastya Rybka).

Vashukevich posted a video on her Instagram account showing Deripaska and Prikhodko.
It includes a snippet where Deripaska says the following (according to the Russian translator):
We’ve got bad relations with America, because the friend of Sergey Eduardovich [Prikhodko], Nuland’s her name, is responsible for them. When she was your age, she’s spent a month on a Russian whaling boat. She hates our country after this. Why is that?
This includes a reference to President Obama’s State Department official overseeing Russian relations - Victoria Nuland.

The video finally got the attention it didn’t deserve, when Russian lawyer, and wannabee politician, Alexei Navalny, posted the video with his Russian commentary with English subtitles on Youtube.
Navalny tried to challenge Putin for president in 2018, but was blocked by electoral authorities.

Vashukevich and her group of “sex workers” in the meantime have been jailed in Thailand, for working without a work permit. Vashukevich does just about anything to get publicity and has posted videos and photos on Instagram detailing being locked up.
An earlier stunt in which Vashukevich was involved was a nude demonstration for Harvey Weinstein in front of the US Embassy in Moscow.
Vashukevich now claims that she has more than 16 hours of audio recordings from her trip with Deripaska and Prikhodko, including conversations with 3 people who were probably Americans, and:
They were discussing elections. Deripaska had a plan about elections.

Vashukevich claims to have evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election. I don’t believe this: https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics ... stya-rybka

Vashukevich says she fears for her life, if she will be returned to Russia.
Russia reportedly shut down most of Navalny’s online presence and blocked his Youtube video on Vashukevich, Deripaska and Prikhodko.
Information was also deleted from Vashukevich’s Instagram account.

For more information on the affairs of Anastasia Vashukevich, her friend Aleksandr Kirillov, (a.k.a. Alexander Lesley) and 5 other Russian “sex workers” in custody in Thailand: http://www.hotties-pattaya.com/2018/02/ ... ts-on.html


The fact that Alexei Navalny’s video has not been deleted by Youtube makes it more probable that this isn’t the “bombshell” that some “alternative” media wants us to believe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQZr2NgKPiU

Rex Tillerson, Kushner, UAE, Sheldon Adelson

Last Tuesday Rex Tillerson was replaced by Trump as Secretary of State.

Charles Kushner — Jared's father and the head of Kushner Companies, the family firm of which Jared remains a part-owner — discussed the refinancing of 666 Fifth Avenue with Qatari Finance Minister Ali Sharif Al Emadi about a month before the “diplomatic assault” started. They couldn’t reach an agreement.
the failure to broker the deal would be followed only a month later by a Middle Eastern diplomatic row in which Jared Kushner provided critical support to Qatar's neighbors. Led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, a group of Middle Eastern countries, with Kushner's backing, led a diplomatic assault that culminated in a blockade of Qatar.
The blockade was opposed by Rex Tillerson, who called to ease it.

Reportedly Tillerson was enraged over this affair. A close associate of Tillerson told the press:
Rex put two-and-two together, and concluded that this absolutely vacuous kid [Jared Kushner] was running a second foreign policy out of the White House family quarters.

Trump advisers George Nader and Elliott Broidy have been linked to the UAE.
Elliott Broidy's defence company Circinus has hundreds of millions of dollars worth of contracts with the UAE. Broidy is an adviser to the UAE Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan (MBZ).
Broidy met US President Donald Trump in October 2017 shortly after returning from the UAE and urged him to sack Rex Tillerson. Broidy referred to Rex Tillerson as "a tower of Jello", "weak" and "needs to be slammed"
A hacked memo authored by Broidy called for Tillerson’s dismissal. Broidy told President Donald, that Tillerson was “performing poorly and should be fired at a politically convenient time”.

Broidy urged President Donald to "sit down" with Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and a top UAE military commander. Broidy wrote in an email:
I offered that MBZ is available to come to the U.S. very soon and preferred a quiet meeting in New York or New Jersey. President Trump agreed that a meeting with MBZ was a good idea.

Tillerson’s friend told reporters that Tillerson thought that UAE ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba, a close friend of Kushner, supported Kushner in the blockade:
Otaiba weighed in with Jared and Jared weighed in with Trump. What a mess.

When the blockade was announced by Saudi Arabia, Tillerson was in Sydney with Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.
Tillerson called on Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt to ease their anti-Qatar blockade and announced that the US supported a Kuwaiti-led mediation effort.
That appeal wasn’t helped by President Trump, who later that day said that Qatar “has historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level”. Tillerson's aides thought that UAE ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba wrote Trump's statement.

A White House official told the press to ignore Tillerson on this matter:
Tillerson may initially have had a view, then the president has his view, and obviously the president's view prevails.
Reportedly Tillerson wasn’t only "blind-sided by the Trump statement" but "absolutely enraged that the White House and State Department weren't on the same page".

According to a senior military officer, Mattis’
first reaction was shock, but his second was disbelief.
He thought the Saudis had picked an unnecessary fight, and just when the administration thought they'd gotten everyone in the Gulf on the same page in forming a common front against Iran.

In another obvious move to distract the gullible public from what’s going on.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night (16 March) fired former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. McCabe was expected to retire on 18 March when he turns 50.
The given reason is that the Inspector General found out that McCabe leaked to the media about a Hillary Clinton related case…

McCabe claims he´s targeted (not in a distraction ploy…) because he was a witness in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia. He also claims former FBI Director James B. Comey knew about the disclosure to the media.

To stir up the controversy it’s claimed that McCabe will lose a significant portion of his retirement benefits.
Shortly after midnight, Trump tweeted:
Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!

At the end of February, the security clearance of presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner (and other White House officials) was downgraded, reducing his access to classified information, on the orders of chief of staff John Kelly.
Will Kelly soon be replaced?

According to the Post, officials in the UAE, China, Israel and Mexico had privately discussed how they could manipulate Kushner by taking advantage of his business arrangements: http://time.com/5178490/jared-kushners- ... owngraded/


In May 2017, Tillerson had expressed that the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem could only continue if this wouldn´t harm the “peace” in the Middle East on NBC's "Meet the Press”.
Main Trump backer Sheldon Adelson was reportedly "furious" over these comments by Tillerson: https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/adelson ... -1.5472180

In December 2017, senior adviser to Tillerson, R. C. Hammond, told reporters that Tillerson did not oppose the move of the Embassy to Jerusalem, but requested more time: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/06/us/p ... srael.html


Sheldon Adelson makes this post full circle, as his FDD think tank is also associated with UAE Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan (MBZ) and UAE ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewto ... 1156#p4362
