On 30 April 2020, Geoffrey Berman announced a deferred prosecution agreement against Israel's largest bank Bank Hapoalim, for helping to hide assets in offshore accounts and helping to bribe FIFA officials (the body that controls international soccer).
There is important information missing in the stories on Bank Hapoalim...
I found absolutely no information on the American criminals that used Bank Hapoalim to evade taxes!

Here’s some more information on the bribes to FIFA officials by the Argentine company Full Play Group that won marketing rights for the 2015, 2016, 2019 and 2023 Copa Americas (South America’s soccer championship).
Full Play is controlled by Hugo Jinkis and his son Mariano, who were first indicted in 2015.

From 2010-14, Full Play made at least 53 bribe payments totalling more than $14 million to Louis Bedoya, Jose Luis Chiriboga, Esquivel and Figueredo: https://www.timesofisrael.com/bank-hapo ... x-evasion/


In 2010, Israeli authorities “investigated” a money-laundering case of Bank Hapoalim that involved the Katsyv family. Millions of dollars were transferred through Katsyv-controlled accounts at the bank. According to Israeli prosecutors, Hapoalim bank managers concealed the real beneficiaries of these accounts in violation of anti-money-laundering rules.
The bank blamed Katsyv’s business for these violations, so the bank managers were found not guilty.

Prevezon Holdings Ltd was registered in 2005 and is owned by Denis Katsyv and Martash Investment Holdings Ltd from the British Virgin Islands that is also owned by Denis Katsyv.

On 5 February 2008, Bunicon received $9.4 million from the correspondent account of the Krainiy Sever bank. The next day Bunicon sent $410,000 to Prevezon’s account at the Swiss bank UBS AG.
On 13 February 2008, Elenast received $800,000 from the same account and then transferred more than half that amount to Prevezon.

Katsyv is also in business with Russian oligarch Lev Leviev: https://www.reportingproject.net/proxy/ ... tsky-money
(http://archive.is/44HQS)


For the inevitable Trump links...
Rotem Rosen was the "right hand man" of diamond magnate Chabad-Lubavitcher Lev Leviev.
In December 2007, Zina Sapir, daughter of (the late) Tamir, married Rotem Rosen, in a wedding hosted by Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago.
The Sapir Organization (that was founded by Tamir Sapir) partnered with Bayrock and the Trump Organization in the Trump SoHo project.

Lev Leviev also bought Israeli media companies together with Donald Trump’s close friend Ronald Lauder.

And links to Donald’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

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.


The following story is quite good... see some excerpts (including Hapoalim, Leviev, Denis Katsyv and Preet Bharara).
Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey primarily because Comey asked for additional resources from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to beef up the FBI's "follow-the-money" investigation of the Trump campaign. The FBI's receipt of data from the Department of Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN) regarding the money laundering involving Trump and Kushner businesses, accounts maintained by the Bank of Cyprus, HSBC, Bank Hapoalim of Israel, and other banks, and the Trump presidential campaign are what lie at the heart of the FBI's investigation of Trump. The FBI is reportedly focused on Trump's associates' financial dealings with banks in Cyprus.
(...)

Bayrock was linked as a partner to another business syndicate, the Sapir Organization, headed by Donald and Ivanka Trump's and Jared Kushner's good friends Rotem Rosen and Israeli citizen Alex Sapir. The Sapir Organization is involved in major hotel projects in New York and around the world, including the Trump Tower in Toronto. Others involved with the Toronto Trump Tower include Uzbek-Israeli diamond tycoon Lev Leviev, accused of trafficking in African "blood diamonds" and Canadian-Russian-Israeli businessman Alexander Shnaider, owner of Talon International Development Inc, and co-owner of Midland Resources Holding Inc. with his partner Ukrainian-Russian billionaire , who is also vice-president of the World Jewish Congress.
(...)

According to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, none other than Preet Bharara, who Trump fired, the Trincher criminal syndicate, known as the "Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization, ran a major illegal sports betting operation in the United States. Bharara's indictment specified the "Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization (the "Organization") was a criminal enterprise with strong ties to Russia and Ukraine. The enterprise operated a high-stakes, illegal sports gambling business out of New York City that catered primarily to Russian oligarchs living in Ukraine and Russia." In other words, the same tower that Donald Trump called home was the center of a major illegal sports betting operation. Given Trump's own ties to gambling casinos and professional sports, there is little wonder why Trump viewed Bharara and Comey as threats.
(...)

A Kushner project to redevelop Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood involves the family of Israel's diamond magnate billionaire family. The Kushner deal involves Raz Steinmetz, whose uncle is Beny Steinmetz, the owner Steinmetz Diamond Group and BSG Resources, the latter under an FBI investigation for violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for bribes paid to officials of the West African Republic of Guinea for mining concessions in that nation. Steinmetz companies also conduct business through a British Virgin Islands shell company called "Rebar LLC."

Ras Steinmetz's brother, Daniel Steinmetz, was involved in business with Jared Kushner through Gaia Investments Corporation of Tel Aviv through an affiliate Gaia JC LLC. After Jared Kushner became a chief adviser to Trump, said to be one of only a few in a Trump "inner circle" that also includes daughter Ivanka Trump, communications specialist Hope Hicks, and Trump "body man" Keith Schiller, the Steinmetz-Kushner firm changed its name to "65 Bay LLC."
(...)

In a case that was vigorously pursued by fired U.S. Attorney Bharara in Manhattan, the U.S. Justice Department, now under Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein, has agreed to a settlement with Moscow businessman Denis Katsyv and his hedge fund firm Prevezon Holdings, Ltd. just three days before scheduled jury selection for the trial. Prevezon and its eleven related companies had been charged with money laundering for a criminal network extending from Russia to Moldova and Latvia to New York and Israel. What was at the heart of the money laundering case? You guessed it. the Red Kosher Nostra. Katsyv's partners included his Russian partner Timofey Krit and Israeli businessman Alexander Litvak.

Kushner Companies buying real estate in New York for $190 million was made possible because of investments from Israel’s Raz Steinmetz, whose uncle is none other than diamond billionaire Beny Steinmetz.
Since at least 2012, Kushner Cos. and Raz Steinmetz’s investment firm Gaia have been in business including in a number of joint ventures.

A “dubious relationship” between Gaia and Bank Hapoalim, which is also one of Kushner Cos. lenders, has been reported.
Gaia Investment lists Shlomo Meichor and Assi Arev as principals. Meichor was previously chief financial officer of Ampal-American Israel Corp. In 1996, Raz Steinmetz and his father Daniel (Beny’s brother) bought a controlling interest in Ampal-American Israel Corp. from Bank Hapoalim.

In the 1990s Beny and Daniel formed Steinmetz Diamond Group (now Diacor International Ltd.), which is one of about 80 companies that can buy diamonds from De Beers SA.

Beny Steinmetz, who was represented by none other than Trump supporter and Jeffrey Epstein friend Alan M. Dershowitz, has been accused of bribing Guinea (in Africa) government officials with tens of millions of dollars, for his Beny Steinmetz Group Resources (BSGR), to secure iron-ore mining rights.
Beny Steinmetz started a “frivolous and false” lawsuit against none other than George Soros for orchestrating being prosecuted in the US: http://archive.is/O0ldi


Beny Steinmetz is of course also a close business partner of Lubavitcher Dan Gertler, who is plundering the Congo from its natural resources: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1648#p6306

Re: Russiagate – Spectrum Health, Alfa bank

I’ve previously posted on the Spectrum Health of the Devos family (the in-laws of Donald’s Education Secretary, sister of Erik Prince Betsy Devos), communication with the Russian Alfa Bank and the Trump Organization during the 2016 presidential election.

In 2016, some computer hackers found out that a server registered to the Trump Organization on Fifth Avenue was “secretly” communicating with the Alfa bank and Spectrum Health.
One of the peculiar things about this server is that it excluded communication from other hosts. The investigators found that at election-related moments, the traffic peaked.
They weren’t able to see the contents of the communication.

Spectrum Health has denied having a relationship with Alfa Bank or any of the Trump organizations. Betsy DeVos has become Trump’s Secretary of education and her brother, Erik Prince of the Blackwater mercenaries, is an unofficial advisor to Trump...

The following makes a strong case that Spectrum Health delivered the needed email addresses (from the health insurance database) to microtarget American voters: https://teapainusa.wordpress.com/2017/0 ... r-scandal/
(http://archive.is/sK59U)


Alfa Group executives Mikhail Fridman and Petr Aven have visited Washington DC less often since Donald was crowned president, but this doesn’t mean that they have less influence.

In July 2018, Brian Benczkowski was confirmed as head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.
In the first half of 2017, Alfa Bank hired lawyer Brian Benczkowski, to discredit the evidence on communications between its server and the Trump Organization server, when he worked as a lawyer at Kirkland & Ellis (that also represented Jeffrey Epstein): http://archive.is/9qsJS


White House counsel Don McGahn came from the law firm Jones Day, which represents Alfa Bank. Another 11 Jones Day lawyers were brought into the Trump Administration. In 2016, McGahn was Donald Trump's campaign counsel.
On 17 October 2018, McGahn left the Trump administration.

Jones Day has also worked for (other) businesses controlled by Russian oligarchs, including Oleg Deripaska, Viktor Vekselberg, and Alexander Mashkevich.
Jones Day has also represented the Trump campaign over the “Russiagate investigation” of Robert Mueller.
McGahn got an ethics waiver so he can talk to his former Jones Day colleagues when its clients have business before the U.S. government.

Richard DeVos’ father co-founded Amway, and his brother, Doug DeVos, is Amway’s president since 2002.
In 2014, Amway partnered with Alfa Bank in the “Alfa-Amway” loyalty-card program in Russia (the Spectrum Health of the same DeVos family denied any relation with the Alfa Bank): http://web.archive.org/web/202003180449 ... p-campaign


Mikhail Fridman and 3 fellow Alfa Group billionaires are ready to invest $3 billion in the American health care industry.

Interestingly, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) oversees prosecutions of Wall Street banks and the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank of New York (both located in that district).
After Geoffrey Berman was ousted as US attorney, President Donald nominated Jay Clayton for SDNY US Attorney, who was previously installed by Donald to head the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

I could have been correct about why AG Bill Barr fired US attorney Geoffrey Berman...

Maybe the most damaging is that Berman continued the investigation after Epstein was suicided and declared that Epstein’s close friend Prince Andrew had “provided zero co-operation” in his investigation (despite promising to do so). His office even formally requested that the US Department of Justice would ask the British Home Office so Randy Andy could be questioned as a witness

The indictment of Ghislaine Maxwell (literally on the first working day that Berman didn’t go to work) only covers the period from 1994 to 1997.
Prince Andrew sexually abused the 17-year-old Virginia Roberts (Giuffre) in 2001. So because the indictment doesn’t cover that period Randy Andy is off the hook.
Queen Elizabeth says “thank you Donald for saving my favourite son”.

See the photo of Prince Andrew, Virginia Roberts and Ghislaine Maxwell in London in 2001.
Image


Clayton, who Donald likes to “oversee” (not) prosecution of the major banks, has previously represented 8 of the 10 largest Wall Street banks when he was an attorney, partner at the Sullivan & Cromwell law firm...
Jay Clayton has worked for UBS and the Deutsche Bank that was recently fined $150 million (after charges brought by Berman’s office) over amongst others its relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
He also represented the film studio of Harvey Weinstein.

Clayton represented Goldman Sachs in perhaps its most important deal, the $5 billion investment by Warren E. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway during the 2008 financial crisis. His wife, Gretchen, has worked at Goldman Sachs...
In the last year, Jay Clayton earned some $7.6 million from Sullivan & Cromwell. He has investments in Apollo Global Management, Bain Capital (founded by Mitt Romney), J.C. Flowers and Perry Partners.

Jay Clayton has also represented TeliaSonera that has business ties to Russia and Iran.
The deals Clayton was involved in, included its stake in Russian mobile phone operator MegaFon, with the Russian Altimo that has long been controlled by the notorious Russian billionaire, Chabad-Lubavitcher Mikhail Fridman, who is best known for controlling the Alfa Group (including the Alfa Bank that communicated with the Trump Organization and the Spectrum Health of the DeVos family during the 2016 election campaign): http://archive.is/VVahu


Clayton is by no means the only lawyer Trump has nominated, appointed with ties to the Alfa Group...
See Rudy Giuliani with the heads of Alfa Bank; Mikhail Fridman (left) and Pyotr Aven in Moscow at Alfa’s “Award for Excellence in Foreign Investment in Russia”.
Image

Jay Clayton has also arranged Initial Public Offerings for a number of companies, including the $1.2 billion Och-Ziff Capital Management IPO (of Dan Gertler, the Chabad-Lubavitcher plundering the Congo).

During the financial crisis of 2007–2008, Clayton advised Bear Stearns (close to Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump) in its fire sale to JPMorgan Chase in 2007: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jay_Clayton_(attorney)

The dementia election – Trump / Biden

Post by Firestarter » Wed Aug 12, 2020 4:30 pm

On 11 August 2020, only 3 months before the presidential elections, Joe Biden finally announces his running mate – Kamala Harris – in the dementia election.
At the time of the November elections Donald Trump is 74 and Joe Biden is even older with 77…

It must have been quite a challenge for the Democrook-Republicons to find somebody in the USA more despised than Donald Trump, Mike Pence and Joe Biden.

Lawyer Kamala Harris is of mixed Indian-black race, married to a Jew, and has been supported by the Trumpies (Donald and his Jewish daughter Ivanka) that donated thousands to her in 2011, 2013 and 2014: https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/08 ... arris.html
Image


Kamala Harris got her start in politics through an affair with Willie Brown: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/poli ... llie-brown
Image


Kamala Harris earlier announced to run for president, but dropped out of the race because almost nobody wanted to vote for her. While she tries to use her black skin, even many black Americans hate her for her ruthless policy against minor offenders as California’s attorney general (from 2011 to 2017).

Kamala Harris even used the sort of tricks corrupt lawyers use to keep wrongfully convicted people locked up for political purposes.
One of these is Kevin Cooper, who got the death sentence, while George Gage will die in prison without intervention from the governor.
She refused to have DNA testing used in Cooper’s case.
Gage’s conviction was based on suppressing evidence by the prosecutor that would have destroyed the credibility of the sole witness against him.

Many of the people locked up in California were/are for marijuana offences. Harris laughed after being asked if marijuana should be legal.
Harris also supports that people who are too poor to post exorbitant money bail are locked up: https://theappeal.org/kamala-harris-cri ... ntial-run/
(http://archive.is/kw64M)


Of course it’s very dangerous if children aren’t brainwashed educated at our wonderful schools, or they might grow up to think for themselves become “criminals”. Kamala Harris supported a policy to punish parents of truant children.

See the following video from January 2010; maybe I don’t have much of a sense of humour, but I really don’t understand what’s so funny Kamala.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDLANlZEicg


I guess that FOX won’t report on this one (again) in the near future...
According to the “reputable” FOX news, the younger brother of presidential candidate “creepy” Joe, Frank Biden, in 2016 several members of the Biden family (and his Finnegan relatives) were so disgusted with Hillary Clinton that they voted for Donald Trump instead: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/joe-bi ... ton-report


In a strange twist Joe Biden doesn’t get much publicity, even though the whole “deep state” is against poor Donald, but when he does it often insinuates that he suffers from dementia.
Joe Biden was asked about taking a cognitive assessment test. Again Joe Biden doesn’t appear very coherent in his response...
No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon man, that’s like saying, ‘You — before you got on this program you took a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?

Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about. Look, c’mon man, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I’m so ... looking [forward] to have an opportunity to sit or stand with the president on the debates.
https://news.yahoo.com/biden-interview- ... 13631.html

In the end, Biden really falls apart. I guess this is what he was trying to say...
I am very willing to let the American public judge my physical and mental fitness and to make a judgment about who I am and what state of affairs I have
All you’ve got to do is watch me. And I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the reporter gets the chance to give his reaction about the vile insinuation by Biden that he is a “junkie”...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNw5ACfkXAM


To tell you the truth I don’t think that either is suffering from dementia, although I certainly don’t rule out other mental disorders!

See Joe Biden in the following. If anybody understands what he’s rambling about, please let me know!
To me it looks more like the kind of behaviour caused by those nasty psychiatric drugs that cause mental disorders.

Kids rubbing his legs in the water to watch the hair come back up (the hair th..that...that.that..the...that...tha...tha....th at turned blond in the sun) so he learned about roaches and he loves kids jumping in his lap and the guys he worked with down there were guys at the time.
Or something like that?!?

Maybe Kamala Harris or Jerry Brown could have done something, but obviously they had better things to do (of course Donald Trump hasn’t stopped child trafficking in the USA either)…

California has gone from skimpy bikinis to the state where engaging in sex and sodomy with children is a definite plus in gaining full custody of those children. Ask Lexi Dillon, a nine year old girl who begged to be free from her foreign rich abuser and his family. The Tustin Police even tried to arrest Lexi’s rich abuser on multiple counts of sex with the child before he fled the country to avoid incarceration. Yet, while rape and sodomy were acceptable parenting practices to Lexi’s Orange County judges, those same judges punished the mother for taking the child to a doctor and for letting the child talk to the police.
For trying to help her daughter, Lexi’s mother lost custody of her daughter while the judge officially authorized the removal of the American child from the U.S. into the hands of the foreigner. It didn’t even matter if he had plans to share her with other foreigners, presumably in Thailand where he had citizenship, If Lexi’s childhood duties just involved satisfying her father’s sexual pleasure, why did he take and upload the thousand or so naked photos of little Lexi onto his computer? Though the Tustin police thought uploading naked photos of kids was illegal, the Orange County District Attorney thought otherwise and blocked the search warrant for the computer.
(…)
No problem where California is concerned. San Diego’s Judge Gregory Pollack ordered full custody to the non-father and authorized him to take Jonah out of the country. A fake passport was prepared for the boy, which falsely identified an unrelated woman as the mother and it was “Bye-bye, America,” for the Alabama boy. Son of San, the door is open to you.

In the case of Jonah Rief, Judge Pollack stated in court, “I don’t care if somebody else is the father. I am going to make Brian Sullivan be the father.” In response to the Alabama order for a paternity test, Judge Pollack stated that if a DNA test showed Sullivan was not the father, “I [Pollack] will contest that DNA test.” Pollack worked hard to make sure that nothing could mess up the non-father’s rights by authorizing him to remove the boy from the country. Jonah Rief was last seen in Australia a day after his removal from the United States was authorized.

The non-father uploaded naked pictures of Jonah onto the net, which was apparently A-OK with California judges. Prior to getting the boy, the non-father or someone on his behalf also put misleading videos of the boy onto YouTube, encouraging others to kidnap the boy from his mother. An Alabama judge issued a protective order protecting the boy and the mother in response to the kidnapping solicitation from the non-father.
https://beforeitsnews.com/power-elite/2 ... 46738.html


Jonah’s parents have called on California Attorney General Kamala Harris and Governor Jerry Brown to take action to end the trafficking of children via the California court system.
(…)
“Tammy Rief, who is from Georgia and has never lived in California, now sits in a California prison.”
Reportedly, an Alabama court ordered Brian Sullivan to keep away from Jonah, and another court order gave Tammy, the mother, full custody of Jonah. However, a California judge gave Sullivan, “a man documented to have abused Jonah”, the right “to steal Jonah”, from his home in Georgia.
(…)
When the mother was allowed a visit from Jonah, the mother “saw Jonah had been battered and had rope burns on both wrists and on his ankles.” Jonah told his mother that his father had abused him along with several other men.
Tammy Rief took Jonah to the nearest out-of-state hospital. An examination showed Jonah had been physically and sexually abused.

However, the Arizona police arrested Tammy and Jonah and sent them back to Sullivan and Judge Pollack.
Judge Pollack charged Tammy with kidnapping Jonah and gave her a three-year prison sentence.
https://patriotjayecitizensinvestigativ ... c-exposed/


I looked for “evidence” as I suspected that maybe this is another one of those fake “bombshell stories”.
I was convinced by what Jonah said when questioned by the cop. This if from the police report of the arrest of the loving mother Tammy Rief in 2012.
He advised that Mr. Brian was mean and that he put things in his butt. I asked him what kind of things. He advised he didn't know, that it hurts and that he had a sore there.

Ghislaine Maxwell's nephew Alexander Djerassi coordinated "Friends of Libya" meetings to support the National Transition Council: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friends_of_Libya

For the link to Sara Bronfman’s husband...
Basit Igtet is a Libyan national, widely known for his support of the Libyan revolution and his work in international lobbying for the New Libya. He was appointed as a Special Envoy to the Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) in 2011.
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1485&start=60

One way to find out what’s happening is follow the... lawyers!

Basit Igtet hired the law firm of former US Senator Joe Lieberman (Al Gore’s running mate to get Bush Jr. elected in 2000 and John McCain’s good friend), Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman.

In 2016, it was announced that David Friedman (of the law firm) had been selected by Donald Trump for Ambassador to Israel.
The famous clients of Kasowitz, Benson & Torres (& Friedman) include Donald Trump: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kasowitz_Benson_Torres


Another associate of Basit Igtet, Richard Griffiths, joined lobby, law firm Squire Patton Boggs.
That’s the same Squire Patton Boggs that in April 2017 hired Donald’s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen for a $500,000 annual “alliance fee” plus commissions.

It certainly shouldn’t be surprising that Joe Biden held fundraisers attended by former Sen. John Breaux, now top lobbyist at Squire Patton Boggs “as a friend”: https://www.politico.com/newsletters/po ... ney-784223

According to the following, the top recipient of donations from Squire Patton Boggs (not the firm itself though) is one Joe Biden: https://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/summary?id=D000067299


Or follow the... oil companies!
ExxonMobil, where Rex Tillerson was CEO before he became Donald’s Secretary of State (since then replaced), has been represented by the Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garris law firm.
Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garris hosted a fundraiser for Joe Biden and whose employees have given Biden large campaign donations of at least $153,000 in total.

The now running mate of Biden - Senator Kamala Harris – even received $173,000 from Paul Weiss employees (before she dropped out of the race as presidential candidate).

Paul Weiss’s clients include – there it is again - Apollo Global Management that financed the Kushner in-laws of Donald’s daughter Ivanka Trump with hundreds of millions of dollars...

ExxonMobil has also donated $1 million to Americans for Carbon Dividends (AFCD), which lobbies for the carbon tax scheme, Baker-Schultz plan.
AFCD is co-chaired by former U.S. Senators Trent Lott and John Breaux, who are now lobbyists with Squire Patton Boggs: https://readsludge.com/2019/12/10/lawye ... en-donors/

Even most Trump fans will admit that media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s FOX supports Donald Trump.
In one of those strange twists Rupert’s son and daughter-in-law, James Murdoch and Kathryn, each donated $615,000 to the presidential campaign of Joe Biden!

Biden’s biggest donors in the second quarter of 2020 include (who gave at least $500,000).
Laurene Powell Jobs (widow of Steve Jobs);
George Soros (funded Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner with hundreds of millions of dollars);
Dustin Moskovitz (Facebook co-founder);
Jeffrey Katzenberg (co-founder of DreamWorks with Steven Spielberg and Josh Kushner’s friend David Geffen): https://archive.is/Tyldp

On 15 July, Bill Stepien (finally) replaced Brad Parscale as Donald’s campaign manager.
In 2016, Stepien was National Field Director for Donald’s Presidential Campaign.

In 2008, Stepien was a Regional Campaign Manager and later National Field Director for John S. McCain's presidential campaign. McCain again, whose campaign manager was of course Rick Davis. Davis was partner in crime of Paul Manafort, who in 2016 resigned as Donald’s campaign manager (over one of the many scandals that involve the Trump gang).

Bill Stepien previously has been Political Director of the 2004 Bush/Cheney campaign in New Hampshire.
In 2007-08, Stepien had also been National Field Director for New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign.
Rudy is (still) working as a lawyer for Donald Trump.

Stepien got into trouble over the Bridgegate scandal that involved closing 2 of 3 lanes to the George Washington Bridge on 9 September 2013 during rush hour, which created a threat to public safety, when he was working on the re-election campaign of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
This was probably to punish Fort Lee's Mayor Mark Sokolich, who didn’t support Chris Christie for Governor of New Jersey.

On August 13, Bill Stepien’s girlfriend who also worked on Christie’s campaign, Bridget Anne Kelly, e-mailed to David Wildstein: "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee".
On 6 September, Wildstein instructed George Washington Bridge manager Robert Durando not to tell anyone in Fort Lee about the coming closure of the lanes to the bridge.

In an e-mail to Bill Stepien, Wildstein wrote "It will be a tough November for this little Serbian" (derogatorily referring to Sokolich, who is Croatian-American).
Bill Stepien denied involvement so wasn’t prosecuted: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Stepien

Donald’s and the SCL Group’s spin doctor Steve Bannon has been arrested for taking $1 million from a crowd-funded border wall campaign, and spending hundreds of thousands on “expenses”.
See Donald Trump Jr. praising the “We Build The Wall” scam in July 2019 with its leader Brian Kolfage (an Iraq war veteran, who lost both legs and his right arm).

Prosecutors charged Bannon, Kolfage and 2 others with defrauding hundreds of thousands of people out of $25 million in donations for the wall.
Bannon pleaded not guilty and was released on a $5 million bail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... event.html


The “We Build The Wall” scam was started in February 2019, by amongst others Bannon, Kolfage and attorney Kris Kobach.
They repeatedly promised that all of the donated money would go to the border-wall projects. Maybe technically, legally speaking awarding yourself hundreds of thousands in salary and/or expenses isn’t a criminal offense (if lying is criminally chargeable all politicians should be in jail).

The rest of the wall on Cabeza Prieta will be built by Fisher Sand and Gravel, whose owner Tommy Fisher, led a “whirlwind media campaign” and paid lobbyists more than $100,000 to get wall contracts. This included the efforts of Senator Kevin Cramer.
Reportedly Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner personally urged the head of the Army Corps to award a $268 million contract to Fisher, even after his bid was rejected. The value of the contract could rise to nearly $400 million


I don’t recommend the following book but I once “read” the book Bob Woodward - “Fear: Trump in the White House” (in 30 minutes so possibly this wasn't the only interesting info in the whole book).

Bob Woodward describes a meeting in 2010 where Donald Trump is introduced to Steve Bannon by David Bossie. Bossie amongst others confronts Trump with the fact that he had donated much more to Democrooks than to Republicons.
Bannon advised Trump to be “the Tea Party candidate, against the ‘rigged system’ and elites, and hold up populism for the common man”.
‘If you’re going to run for president,’ Bossie said, ‘you have to know lots of little things and lots of big things.’ The little things were filing deadlines, the state rules for primaries — minutiae. ‘You have to know the policy side, and how to win delegates.’ But first, he said, ‘you need to understand the conservative movement.’
Trump nodded. ‘You’ve got some problems on issues,’ Bossie said. ‘I don’t have any problems on issues,’ Trump said. ‘What are you talking about?’ First off, there’s never been a guy win a Republican primary that’s not pro-life,’ Bossie said. ‘And unfortunately, you’re very pro-choice.’

‘What does that mean?’
‘You have a record of giving to the abortion guys, the pro-choice candidates. You’ve made statements. You’ve got to be pro-life, against abortion.’
‘I’m against abortion,’ Trump said. ‘I’m pro-life.’
‘Well, you’ve got a track record.’ ‘That can be fixed,’ Trump said. ‘You just tell me how to fix that. I’m — what do you call it? Pro-life. I’m pro-life, I’m telling you.’
(...)

An hour into the meeting, Bossie said, ‘We have another big issue.’ ‘What’s that?’ Trump asked, seeming a little more wary. ‘Well,’ he said, ‘80 percent of the donations that you’ve given have been to Democrats.’ To Bossie that was Trump’s biggest political liability, though he didn’t say so.
‘That’s bullshit!’ ‘There’s public records,’ Bossie said. ‘There’s records of that?’ Trump said in utter astonishment. ‘Every donation you’ve ever given.’ Public disclosure of all political giving was standard. ‘I’m always even,’ Trump said. He divided his donations to candidates from both parties, he said. ‘You actually give quite a bit. But it’s 80 percent Democratic. Chicago, Atlantic City . . .’

‘I’ve got to do that,’ Trump said. ‘All these fucking Democrats run all the cities. You’ve got to build hotels. You’ve got to grease them. Those are people who came to me … I can be the nominee,’ Trump said. ‘I can beat these guys. I don’t care who they are. I got this. I can take care of these other things.’ Each position could be revisited, renegotiated. ‘I’m pro-life,’ Trump said. ‘I’m going to start.’

Donald the drug addict

Post by Firestarter » Sat Sep 12, 2020 3:31 pm

Donald Trump has famously claimed that he never used alcohol or drugs. Some critics have noted that his erratic behaviour, suggests that he’s a drug addict.
The following shows that the Donald in 1982 used a diet drug, similar to amphetamines for 5 months.

Already in February 1992, Spy Magazine’s John Connolly reported that Donald Trump from 1982 to 1985 had been a patient of the New York doctor Joseph Greenberg, who prescribed diet drugs to celebrities.
Greenberg diagnosed Trump with “metabolic imbalance” (an unrecognised medical condition), which he used as a pretext to prescribe Trump Tenuate Dospan (a.k.a. diethylpropion).
Image

Drugs.com reported its side effects as “may impair your thinking or reactions… (and) may also cause restless feelings that can hide the symptoms of extreme tiredness”. This is similar to amphetamines (or ADHD drug Ritalin).
Some experts have noted that diethylpropion shouldn’t be used for more than “a few weeks at a time”. But Trump appears to have used the drug for 5 months in 1982 (and he was a patient of Greenberg until 1985!).

Donald was euphoric over the drug:
Donald was so delighted with the results that he started recommending Dr. Greenberg’s treatments to his brother Robert, various friends, and celebrity acquaintances such as Diana Ross. The diet drugs, which he took in pill form, not only curbed his appetite but gave him a feeling of euphoria and unlimited energy.
Donald’s younger brother Robert Trump died last month, so we can’t ask him: https://gawker.com/the-best-theory-of-1 ... 1755299885
(http://web.archive.org/web/202004220509 ... 1755299885)


The story gets better, or should I say worse?!?

On 10 June 2016, Gawker Media (that published the previous bombshell) filed for bankruptcy in the Southern District of New York, after losing a lawsuit against Hulk Hogan.

What makes this so interesting is that billionaire Trump backer Peter Thiel spent more than $10 million bankrolling third-party lawsuits against Gawker (including the one by Hogan) to shut it down.
Just in time for Donald’s 2016 election victory: https://web.archive.org/web/20160818193 ... 1778734026


To finish this post; Gawker Media’s 6 other websites were bought by Univision Communications for $135 million, but Gawker.com was shut down: https://web.archive.org/web/20170228104 ... 5a2f41cbb5

Michael Cohen - working for Donald

Post by Firestarter » Mon Sep 14, 2020 4:18 pm

Our wonderful media are doing everything they can to give Donald’s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen’s pathetic book the credibility it doesn’t deserve.
Apparently Cohen “forgets” to describe all of the major scandals that implicate Trump. He even “forgets” to link the Trump-Kushner syndicate to the Chabad-Lubavitch cult. I would expect that Michael Cohen would know a lot more about this cult than me, as he is a member of the Chabad... and a close friend of Tevfik Arif’s deputy Lubavitcher Felix Sater since they were teenagers!


Michael Cohen was sentenced to jail for 3 years for tax evasion and lying, but released from jail in May 2020 (he couldn’t have been in jail for more than a couple of months), because of the coronavirus “pandemic”.
Then on 9 July, suddenly in a new ploy to give him publicity he was ordered back to prison and again released to home confinement also in July (was he really locked up on 9 July?) – you can’t make this sh*t up.

Of course it was insinuated by our wonderful media that Cohen was again locked up (for how many days has he been locked up) because of his “tell all book” about Trump: http://archive.is/2kLJb


There are of course interesting stories, our wonderful media could expose.
Viktor Topolov, one of the richest men in Ukraine, was associated with Leonid Roytman who worked for Russian mob boss Semion Mogilevich. Topolov and Alexi Oronov partnered to build an ill-fated factory in Ukraine. So in 2006, they hooked up with none other than Trump’s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen and his brother Bryan Cohen (who just happened to Oronov’s son-in-law), to pitch the factory deal to Morgan Stanley.
Oronov set up the meeting between Michael Cohen, Trump associate Felix Sater and Ukrainian MP Andrii Artemenko, to draw up a Ukrainian peace plan that Michael Cohen allegedly brought to Michael Flynn’s desk.


Michael Cohen was involved in at least 3 attempts to build Trump properties in the former Soviet Union.

Cohen was the main force behind the failed attempt to construct a Trump tower in Batumi, Georgia, through his “dear friend” Giorgi Rtskhiladze, the head of the Silk Road Transatlantic Alliance.
Cohen, among others, met Yerkin Tatishev, a board member of Silk Road Group suspected of illegally funnelling money to another company he owned, and Georgia’s president, Mikhail Saakashvili.

The Silk Road Group got most of its funds from the Kazakh government-owned BTA Bank, whose assets were directed by Timur Kulibayev, the son-in-law of Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev: https://themoscowproject.org/explainers ... xtualized/


Shortly before the 10 March 2016 debates on CNN, Michael Cohen phoned, Donald’s good friend, CNN president Jeff Zucker for some tips for the ongoing debates.
Zucker refused to contact Donald by mail as requested by Cohen over the phone, even though “as fond as I am of the Boss” (Donald Trump) he has to be “careful”.
Zucker also and wanted to give Donald a “weekly show” on CNN (of course at that time it wasn’t sure that Donald would be elected US president).

Of course Fox’s Tucker Carlson forgets to conclude that CNN was supporting Donald Trump all through the 2016 election campaign...
Either Tucker is a pathological liar – like Trump, Cohen and Zucker – or he’s a complete retard, who doesn’t understand that the Trump campaign uses the ridiculous insinuation that all of the “corporate media” are against poor Donald.

Another interesting Trump-Cohen-Zucker link is that Donald’s youngest, Barron Trump, goes to the same private school as Zucker’s offspring.

Trump’s foundation donated more than $150,000 to the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School (a.k.a. Columbia Prep) from 2014 to 2016.
Jeff’s wife, Caryn Zucker, was on the school’s board from at least July 2012 to June 2014. During this time also Michael Cohen was on its board.

Here are some pictures of Caryn Zucker, with Donald and his good friend Ghislaine Maxwell.
Image

On the same day, Caryn Zucker was pictured with Donald and wife Melania; Trump’s foundation donated $50,000 to the school.
For some reason the photo was deleted from the internet: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/al ... elped-lead


I’ve previously posted about Trump’s connection to Jeff Zucker:

Fri Jul 26, 2019 3:56 pm
None other than Donald Trump lobbied the Turner Broadcasting System’s chief executive Phil Kent to make Jeff Zucker president of CNN Worldwide.
Zucker got the job in 2012.

Donald Trump knew Zucker from the reality-TV show “The Apprentice”, which transformed “The Donald” from the billionaire with 4 bankruptcies to his name to a big “media star” (eventually making him into presidential material).
Zucker later introduced Trump to advertisers as the man who saved NBC.

See Zucker, Donald and Melania in 2004.
Image

In 2005, Jeff Zucker was one of the guests at Trump´s wedding to Melania at Mar-a-Lago.
In 2009, Zucker also attended Jared Kushner’s wedding to Ivanka Trump.

CNN was the first major news organisation to give Trump’s presidential campaign much coverage at a time when most people didn’t take his candidacy seriously. Donald was a regular guest in CNN’s studios from the earliest days of the Republican primaries, often at Zucker’s suggestion.
According to the MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, Trump referred to Zucker as his “personal booker”.


Michael Cohen’s daughter, Samantha Cohen, has also got publicity to promote her daddy’s pathetic expose.

Michael Cohen has complained about his “boss” Donald Trump making sexual remarks about his 15-year-old daughter in 2012.
According to Michael, Donald pointed to Samantha and said: “Look at that piece of ass. I would love some of that”.
After Michael Cohen told Donald he was pointing to his daughter, Trump responded: “That’s your daughter? When did she get so hot?

I have to admit though that the 21-year-old Samantha Cohen looks pretty in lingerie (posted by her proud, or creepy?, dad on 14 May 2017).
Image

Also interesting is that Samantha Cohen has been a close friend of Donald’s “other” daughter Tiffany Trump, about who she said:
Tiffany and I had a mutual friend, but she knew who my dad was because Trump never wanted to deal with her, [so] my dad was helpful to her. We got super close, and whenever she’d be in New York we’d go out together. When I was a junior in high school, I went to visit her at Penn and stayed with her, and when I got into Penn she was one of my closest friends.
https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2020/09 ... with-trump


To recap:
Jeff Zucker’s children went to the same private school as Barron Trump, where Zucker’s wife and Michael Cohen were on the board of directors.

Tiffany Trump went to 2 schools with Michael Cohen’s daughter Samantha, who were close friends, including the University of Pennsylvania.
Tiffany Trump was also the good friend of Joe Biden’s granddaughter Naomi Biden at the University of Pennsylvania...
