However, The Panama Papers finger Reid as a prime mover in world financial corruption, propelled by the theft of Leader Technologies' social networking invention by Reid's (and IBM's) long time legal adviser, James P. Chandler, III. Reid's Cartel friends at the NSA may be feeding him illegally gathered dirty secrets about the Republican majority for blackmail to get Garland confirmed. This likely explains his belligerence.

Bernie Sanders hits Hillary Clinton over Panama Papers, Apr. 4, 2016 in Milwaukee
Update Apr. 15, 2016.
Bernie Sanders hit Hillary over her Panama trade flip flop
Bernie highlighted Hillary Clinton's hypocrisy on trade deals. When Hillary was a Senator she opposed the Panama Free Trade deal, but flipped and supported it as Secretary of State. Sanders said that trade deal "fostered" shady practices that enable the "wealthy and the powerful avoid taxes." He pledged to terminate the Panama Free Trade Agreement within six months. Sanders did not address Nevada tax havens promoted by fellow Democrat Harry Reid and his family. Read full Politico story.


(Apr. 07, 2016)Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is attempting to bully the Senate into approving Merrick B. Garland as a Supreme Court justice to replace the late Antonin Scalia.

We think we know why . . .

The Panama Papers have unearthed Harry Reid and his friends as prime facilitators in world financial corruption. See previous post: "Obama nominates spy state consiglieri to replace Justice Scalia."

Harry Reid, IBM and The Panama Papers

The Panama Papers is a trove of 11.5 million confidential documents detailing more than 214,000 offshore companies represented by the Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca. They were leaked to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung a year ago. The newspaper teamed with The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), BBC England, The Guardian, Le Monde and others to analyze the 2.6 terabytes of data before first releasing the results of their work on April 03, 2016.

Leak Source: "Mossack Fonseca is doing real harm to the world."

The source of the leak demanded anonymity, communicated only through encrypted channels, never met the recipients and never asked for remuneration. He said his life was in danger, but believed Mossack Fonseca was doing real harm to the world.

The leak dwarfs previous leaks. The researchers are combing through 4.8 million emails, 2.1 million PDF documents, 1.1 million images and 3 million database files.

Update: Apr. 09, 2016: Search Request to The Panama Files Researchers:
Leader v. Facebook judicial corruption investigators have identified these entities and individuals as actually or likely associated with dubious offshore homeland security activities involving Nevada and Cayman Islands shell companies. For example, South African David K. Sims lives in Tortola and has incorporated numerous entities bearing only his name. Canadian Stephen Hicks lives in Ridgefield, Connecticut and has also incorporated numerous entities in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda bearing only his name. Sims and Hicks have been sued numerous times for predatory financing.

Nevada accomplices protected by OBama Executive Order 13526

Among the discoveries so far is that Nevada figures prominently among the world’s  scoundrel elite as a new favored location to park ill-gotten gains. Who knew? Turns out only a selected few legal insiders knew.

Obama and the Cartel thread of corruptionSo, we pulled on the thread to see where it leads.

Barack Obama’s Dec. 29, 2009 Executive Order 13526 gave near dictatorial powers to his inner circle, including Hillary Clinton, to self-classify national security information. These powers enabled this group to cover over any potentially damaging leaks, including Hillary's private email server. It is also their Get Out of Jail Free card.

Fig. 2—Barack Obama's dubious executive order 13526, Sec. 4.3(b)(6) gave near dictatorial information classification powers to his inner circle. Who knew? Hillary and Bill do, as do his Cartel of friends helping him "fundamentally transform America."
Source: Government Printing Office.

In other words, if the illegalities in their scheme to “radically transform America" into the New World Order were ever threatened with exposure, Executive Order 13526 empowered them to simply classify the threatened disclosure as top secret and thus stonewall further inquiry.

Nevada: “The World’s Favorite New Tax Haven Is the United States.”

On Jan. 27, 2016 however, Bloomberg wrote about this Nevada phenomenon in an article titled: “The World’s Favorite New Tax Haven Is the United States.”

“Some are calling it the New Switzerland,” Jesse Drucker wrote. “By resisting new global disclosure standards the U.S. is creating a hot new market, becoming the go-to place to stash foreign wealth.” Swiss lawyer Peter A. Cotorceanu called the U.S. “sanctimonious” given historically harsh U.S. criticism of Swiss banking secrecy.

Even Rothschild, the centuries-old European institution, is setting up in Reno, Nevada. In a recent presentation Andrew Penny, Rothschild & Co. said the U.S. “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world.”

Here's how the process works:

Hillary R. Clinton

Barack H. Obama

On Dec. 31, 2009, Obama signed Executive Order 13526. This order gave him and six other members of his cabinet authority to self-classify secrets reporting only to the President. Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder were also bestowed these unprecedented powers.


Obama and the Cartel thread of corruptionStep 2: Make Americans disclose foreign holdings (FATCA)

Harry M. Reid
Fig. 5—Harry M. Reid

On Jan. 05, 2010, a week later, Nevada Senator Harry Reid pushed through the Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) along party lines.

FATCA sounds good on the surface. It required American holders of offshore accounts to report them to the IRS. The global community through the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) passed even stiffer rules requiring disclosure of underlying owners and officers of offshore accounts. This punched a hole in the secrecy veil that has been the main attraction of offshore accounts.

Tellingly, only the United States, Bahrain, Nauru, Panama and Vanuatu have refused to sign OECD.

Did Nevada make any law changes before this?

Researchers wondered if Obama’s executive order and FATCA were connected to a common Cartel agenda.

Reasoning that Nevada likely adjusted something in its laws to create “this giant sucking sound” (according to Cotorceanu), researchers went looking for 2009 changes to Nevada corporation laws.

Obama and the Cartel thread of corruptionBingo, Step 3: Nevada corporation law – complete anonymity

Valerie Wiener
Fig. 6Valerie Wiener, Nevada State Senator (1997-2012); Congressman and U.S. Senator Harry Reid's speech writer and press secretary (1981-1986). As vice chair of the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee, Wiener sponsored SB 350 that protected Nevada lawyers from liability and reporting requirements for offshore clients. All four Harry Reid sons (Rory, Josh, Leif, Key) are Nevada attorneys. SB 350 was a boon to the Reid family business.

On Mar. 23, 2009, just months into Obama’s presidency, Nevada state senator Valerie Wiener (1997-2012) introduced changes to Nevada corporation law to protect Nevada lawyers from liability when representing crooked offshore clients. The Nevada legislature approved Wiener's changes two months later on May 20, 2009 as Senate Bill 350.

These seemingly harmless bureaucratic changes shifted the money laundering and tax dodging Titanic almost overnight to Nevada.

Senator Wiener, a PR person by profession, proposed to exempt attorneys who are corporation agents from disclosing any information about the offshore clients they represent.  She also added two sections guaranteeing these lawyers government help in collecting legal fees.

In short, the changes allowed Nevada attorneys to offer complete anonymity to offshore clients. Note that the law change applied only to Nevada attorneys. Non attorney Nevada agents still had to report suspicious client activity.


Obama and the Cartel thread of corruptionHarry Reid’s island

Harry M. Reid
Fig. 7—Harry M. Reid

A simple Google search revealed that Valerie Wiener was Harry Reid’s speech writer and press secretary from 1981-1986. Logic and common sense says Harry Reid is the power behind Wiener's convenient changes to Nevada corporate law that Reid and his four sons have dramatically exploited.

Reid and his four sons are all Nevada attorneys. They are currently embroiled in a corruption scandal involving a Chinese energy company named ENN Energy Group.

Judicial Watch believes this Chinese scandal is the real reason Harry Reid is quitting the U.S. Senate.

In short, Harry Reid created the “giant sucking sound” of dirty money into Nevada. The U.S. refusal to agree to OECD ensures Nevada’s ignominious distinction as the world’s money laundering haven.

Obama and the Cartel thread of corruptionHarry Reid put forward Judge Evan J. Wallach in Leader v. Facebook

Evan J. Wallach
Fig. 8—Evan J. Wallach

Within days in 2011 of Leader Technologies filing its appeal in Leader v. Facebook, Harry Reid sponsored his former chief counsel, Evan J. Wallach, to be a Federal Circuit judge.

Magically, when the Federal Circuit panel was named by Chief Judge Randall R. Rader, Wallach was assigned as one of the three judges—even though he had no patent law experience. Wallach ruled against Leader’s patent property rights while he held Facebook financial interests, including Fidelity Contrafund—the largest mutual fund holder of Facebook pre-IPO stock. That distinction continues. Contrafund continues to be the darling holding of Obama's Cartel insiders. Chief Justice John G. Roberts holds it, as does Eric H. Holder, Jr. and Wallach's fellow Leader v. Facebook judge Kimberly A. Moore, as well as 12-year former FBI director Robert S. Mueller.

Subsequently disgraced Judge Randall Rader swore in Harry Reid's former
Senate counsel, Evan J. Wallach, as Federal Circuit judge on Nov. 18, 2011. A few months later, Wallach ruled against Leader Technologies' social networking patent despite having no experience in patent law.

Top photo: CAFC.

Wallach’s decision protected the theft of Leader Technologies’ social networking patent by Facebook and the IBM Eclipse Foundation. This made Wallach an accomplice in the Greatest Financial Crime in the history of the World since the total value of social media reaches into the multiple trillions of dollars.

As a further indicator of the immorality of Wallach and the Federal Circuit judges, on May 23, 2014, Rader resigned as chief judge in a scandal involving one of Facebook’s other attorneys, Weil Gotshal LLP. In his involvement as chief judge in the Leader v. Facebook appeal, Rader was silent about his conflicts of interest with James P. Chandler as well as Facebook's attorney, Thomas G. Hungar. The old boys just winked.


Harry Reid’s central role in the corruption of global banking must be investigated.

Readers are encouraged to contact ICIJ, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Le Monde, The Guardian and BBC to analyze their Panama Papers database to further expose Nevada’s role in the corruption of global banking and ethical international discourse.

    Clinton’s massive campaign machine is built of the very stuff — super PACs, secret cash, unlimited contributions — she says she’ll attack upon winning the White House.

    Indeed, a Center for Public Integrity investigation reveals that Clinton’s own election efforts are largely immune from her reformist platform. While Clinton rails against “unaccountable money" that is “corrupting our political system,” corporations, unions and nonprofits bankrolled by unknown donors have already poured millions of dollars into a network of Clinton-boosting political organizations. That’s on top of the tens of millions an elite club of Democratic megadonors, including billionaires George Soros and Haim Saban, have contributed.

    1. As Sanders spoke to reporters in Philadelphia, Clinton held an impromptu news conference in the Bronx during which she shrugged off Sanders' comments.

      “I don’t know why he’s saying that, but I will take Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump or Ted Cruz anytime," she remarked. "So, let’s keep our eye on what’s really at stake in this election. We have Republicans whose values are so antithetical to what’s right for New York or right for America."

    It is too bad that our technology sons and daughters are so willing to sell their souls in exchange for "interesting" tech projects. Now that we know that Facebook is a $326 billion invention STOLEN from Columbus, Ohio innovator Leader Technologies, honest programmers would not contribute to this theft.

    Old Tex just got an email from the girls, my twin assistants Flavia and Mavis, that they are in Argentina hiding out because they are the reason that Harry Reid was pummeled. Remember when he was all black and blue? Evidently they were in Vegas and Harry was pretty aggressive at a casino. He followed them outside and ,as we say in Texas, they whooped him pretty good.

    Well, Harry put his goons on their trail and the girls decided to hide out. If the goons find them, they won't like it. These girls have destroyed small countries.

    A new movie is being made as we speak. Harry is played by a girl. Trump has reached out to them to be on his security team.

  11. President Obama acknowledged in a new interview that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton had shown a degree of "carelessness" in managing her emails while heading the State Department.

    "I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America's national security," the president told Fox News Sunday in an interview. But, he added, "what I've also said is that -- and she has acknowledged -- that there's a carelessness, in terms of managing e-mails, that she has owned, and she recognizes."
    But it was Obama who gave permission to use this homebrewed server in an Email to a friend that is on her homebrewed server ?? Of the FBI's probe into the possible mishandling of that information, the president told Fox News host Chris Wallace that he could "guarantee" that politics would not get in the way of a fair investigation Clinton's homebrewed server that had to be upgraded to "Top Secret," Mr. Obama said. "There's stuff that is really top-secret, top-secret, and there's stuff that is being presented to the president or the secretary of state, that you might not want on the transom, or going out over the wire, LIKE OBAMA GIVING Hillary permission to run this homebrewed server
    Obama named his biggest accomplishment as "saving the economy from a great depression" and his worst mistake as "probably failing to plan for, the day after, when I think was the right thing to do, in intervening in Libya." SEE THE FILM INSIDE JOB OBAMA and all the people you appointed.Obama was Mr. aguarantee” to Fox’s Mr. Wallace that there will be “no political influence” from the White House over the email probe. But if you’re trying to send a message to the FBI or Justice, it’s probably shrewder to do it publicly by apologizing for Mrs. Clinton’s “carelessness”

  12. Email comment by GH:

    So, another Wall Street crook gets a pass. NOT A SINGLE BANKER HAS GONE TO JAIL. If this doesn't prove the Obama administration is run by Wall Street, nothing does. This "fine" is a drop in the bucket to Goldman Sachs' total assets which are easily over $1 trillion. Anyone have an accurate number? Keep in mind, Goldman received $13B in taxpayer bailout in 2008, do this $5B fine means they $8B ahead thanks to us poor American taxpayer saps.

    Pramuk, J. (Apr. 11, 2016). Goldman Sachs to pay $5B in mortgage settlement, CNBC.

    Goldman Sachs will pay $5 billion to settle federal and state probes into the bank's sale of mortgage-backed securities before the financial crisis, the Justice Department announced Monday
    Authorities said Goldman misrepresented the quality of loans it securitized and then sold to investors ahead of the housing bubble and 2008 crisis. The settlement includes a $2.4 billion civil penalty, $1.8 billion in relief payouts to underwater homeowners and affected borrowers and $875 million to resolve various other claims.

    What a crime this is.

    Hundreds flock to US Capitol to protest money in politics, hundreds arrested

    Hundreds of protesters flocked to the U.S. Capitol Monday for a demonstration against the role of money in politics, prompting arrests of more than 400 by the Capitol police force.

    The demonstration was part of a series of "Democracy Spring" protests planned in Washington this week by a coalition of groups.

    The demonstrators chanted slogans like "one person, one vote" and "money out of politics" as they sat on the East Front of the Capitol. One sign read "Things go better without Koch," a reference to the billionaire businessmen David and Charles Koch, who have promised to lead an almost $900 million campaign to back favored candidates this election cycle.

    The demonstrators also protested state voter ID laws, saying they suppress voter participation. Another chant protested Democratic "superdelegates" -- party figures, such as members of Congress, who are given votes at the Democratic National Convention but are not elected by primary elections or at party caucuses.


    Too Big to Fail (TBTF) is a major concern regarding the stability of our economic system. It was a major problem during the Great Recession, requiring over $425 billion in bailout money. $700 billion for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) was approved by Congress of your money to subsidize “Too Big to Fail” financial institutions. In fact, former Goldman Sachs employee Neel Kashkari, the new president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis since January, was in charge of TARP and now is conducting a major project this year to create a recommendation to Congress to prevent it from happening again.

    Yet Goldman Sachs, as mentioned in numerous reports above, is one of the major culprits—both in terms of corruption (the $5B fine it agreed to pay on Monday), its market concentration, and its personnel placement.
    According to its own 2015 Annual Report (page 7), Goldman Sachs now manages $1.25 TRILLION in assets.

    To put that in perspective, the U.S. GDP is $18 trillion. So Goldman Sachs controls the equivalent of about 6.9% of our economy. As you can read in the chart below, Goldman Sachs, if it were a sovereign country, would have control over the 12th largest economy in the world—bigger than Australia, Russia, Spain and Mexico (the next four smaller economies).

    Note: because China's exchange rate is determined by fiat, rather than by market forces,
    the official exchange rate measure of GDP is not an accurate measure of China's output;
    GDP at the official exchange rate substantially understates the actual level of China's output vis-a-vis the rest of the world; in China's situation, GDP at purchasing power parity provides the best measure for comparing output across countries

    There are twelve Federal Reserve Banks in the United States. Each one has a president.
    With Kashkari’s appointment [as the Minneapolis Fed President in January], four of the Fed’s 12 regional branches are run by former Goldman executives. In August, the Dallas Fed named former Goldman Sachs Vice Chairman Robert Kaplan as its president. The head of the Philadelphia Fed, Patrick Harker, was the trustee of the Goldman Sachs Trust, and the head of the New York Fed, William Dudley, was the bank’s chief economist. (Source:

    Why is this important? The Federal Reserve System controls the U.S. money supply, the financial lifeblood of our economy. Does it make any common sense to have that level of control by the alumni of a corrupt organization? You can draw your own conclusions.

    To add some especially sour sauce to the mix, consider a comment from a recent private conservation with one of the top former officials in the U.S. Treasury Department. He said that he was talking with a Goldman Sachs executive, and commented that instead of the Goldman Sachs’ motto of “the customer comes FIRST,” based on their actions, they should change it to “the customer comes LAST.”


    Lastly, as AFI’s researchers have been pointing out, there is a strong Harvard University connection to the horrifying Leader Technologies saga.
    Among other relationships, the Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs is none other than Lloyd Blankfein, who received his undergraduate degree (1975) and law degree (1978) from Harvard University.

    Please bring these issues to the attention of your elected officials and new candidates running for office. We urgently need to get these foxes out of our chicken coop.

    1. The Greeks say NO, you cant bribe democracy that's black mail for you Goldman Sachs’, The media Originally, it was created as a neutral, watchdog voice for the citizens but the people have spoken, and this crisis was NOT AN ACCIDENT On September 15, 2008, they say it was necessary for Lehman Brothers to go bankrupt to charm the markets??? fucking bullshit it was all about consolidating control of banking networks, Former trader Hayes put Libor wish list on Facebook, London court hears Facebook, together with Emerson, simply stole the BRG Methodology and passed it off as its own. Tom Hayes, a former trader charged with conspiring to rig benchmark interest rates, had become such a powerful player in 2008 that Goldman Sachs tried to hire him with a $3 million signing-on bonus, a London court was told. Mr. Hayes would change his status on his Facebook page to reflect his daily desires for Libor to move up or down, Facebook than added the feature to tag certain friends or groups, (bankers lawyer Shady traders etc.) The ponzi scheme had everything it needed Larry Summers aka Goldman Sachs David Kirkpatrick set up libor manipulation info on facebook and they all knew facebook was stolen?? zuckerberg was just a puppet, David Kirkpatrick knew facebook was stolen by late 2003 and talk to Mr. Hayes about Libor riging benchmark interest rates

      WE GOT SWINDLED buy politicians in 1999 Lawrence Summers and Rubin passed the Gramm Leach Bliley Act
      the investment banks preferred subprime loans because they carried higher interest rates and the Securities and Exchange Commission conducted no major investigation of the banks during the bubble. In October 7, 2008, 146 people were cut from the Sec Enforcement Division, When David London contacted the Sec Enforcement Division only to find out that only 4 people were working at that time and that was reduced to a staff of ONE?? Turning out the lights. The head of the Sec Enforcement Division in an email to David London said that their was only 4 people working at the SEC and that it use to have a staff of 150, and in about 5 weeks time 2 of the 4 were going to get the sack. David London sent copy's of emails about Lawrence Summers and facebook and The global economic meltdown, but as you can see the Taliban of the financial world had this covered.


    2. CIA drops plan to erase its email messages

      By Sharon Fisher on Yottabytes: Storage and Disaster Recovery

      You might not remember that a number of federal agencies have been looking for ways to delete their email messages. Well, the CIA just announced that it's revoking its plan.

    3. Harvard has raised at least $6.5 billion in its capital campaign, breaking a higher education fundraising record after only two and half years of its five year-long public drive, according to two donors with direct knowledge of the campaign’s progress.

  16. Email comment by TEX:

    In the cyberspace , social media world created initially by Facebook's STOLEN internet platform, there are no limits, no borders, no truthfulness patrol, and no moral standards. If we listen to the words of Mark Zuckerberg and his scaredy cat, loyal minions, we get a sense that they believe the real physical world, God's creation, should operate in exactly the same way.

    On your FB page, you can be whatever or whomever you choose to be. You can be a man or a woman, or both, or neither. You can be rich or poor, tall or short, educated, smart, good looking, and so on . Being honest or dishonest isn't even discussed. A person can become "whatever" with a stroke of a computer key. That mentality reminds me of the Zuckster. He shows disregard for civility by wearing a pajama shirt when he speaks. He plays as if he is a saint by speaking out against laws, rules, and borders. He claims to be a techno genius , while , in fact, he's just a crafty lying thief , and nothing more. His entire world is a world of make believe. Sounds like our current President in so many ways.

    It appears to me , being the soothsayer that I am, that the Zuckster has political plans and it's not running for the local school board. It's the White House, which he believes will become the home office for the One World Order. He mentions regularly how FB is connecting the world, a world with no borders, no prejudices, no realities, and no limits. He is catering to the illegal immigrants, the Black Activists, the LGBT community, the Muslim world, and every other splinter group that the Democrats have to offer. With $37 billion of his own wealth, he can appear to be the polar opposite of Trump while still being outside of the political elite. You may have noticed that he is on a personal mission to destroy Trump because Trump is actually a minor nuisance to the One World Order. Under the Zuck's vision, the super progressive elite can control the weak minded idiots that cling to their religion, their guns, their love of family, their desire to achieve and compete, and their desire to be the best people that liberty and freedom allow. Just so you know, I am not any of those ugly names ( racist, homophobe, misogynist, religious fanatic, etc.) that you wimps like to throw around. You are !!

    So today, I officially announce that I know what you are up to, Mr Zuckheister. You are exposed !! If you would like to respond, you wimp, here's your chance . I am 70 years old.....I can barely walk and am losing my mental capacity. We can go three rounds of a bare knuckle fist fight , winner take all. If I rip your little skinny head off, you pay the folks at Leader 1/2 of of your ill gotten gains. As you get off of the floor, you admit to the world that you and the rest of your fellow Harvard alums are crooks and you agree to move to a country to be named at a later date. If you win, we go another three rounds after I gain consciousness. The rules are the same for all subsequent rounds.

    So there you have it. Let's get together before I forget. Have a great day, TEX

    1. Mark Zuckerberg
      has a message for all Americans: Unfollow Donald Trump.

      Zuckerberg's advocacy group released a statement Wednesday calling Trump's proposal that the U.S. deport 11 million illegal immigrants "absurd."

      Posted by president Todd Schulte, the statement doesn't name Trump specifically but calls out the "voices yelling for mass deportation," an immigration reform idea Trump has supported.'s statement reads as a retort to Trump's first policy paper on immigration reform, in which he refers to Florida Senator Marco Rubio as "Mark Zuckerberg’s personal senator," implying Rubio takes his immigration policy cues from the Facebook co-founder.

      Here's what the post says about the consequences of mass deportation:

      "[D]eporting 11.5 million people would cost U.S. taxpayers $400 to $600 billion dollars, and would take at least 20 years to complete. Even worse, this mass deportation would reduce our GDP by $1.7 trillion--over 5 percent. Many industries would be hit hard, others--like agriculture, construction and hospitality--would be devastated." also fired back against proposals to limit programs like the H-1B visa that allows U.S. companies to employ foreign workers, calling any plan to "radically restrict pathways" for skilled immigrants to come to the U.S. "just wrong." In his plan, Trump is calling for making it more expensive to hire H-1B visa holders, as well as making it more difficult for companies to replace U.S. workers.

      While Trump and Zuckerberg's represent policy positions that are in direct conflict, SiliconBeat points out that Trump has supported some proposals favored by those in the tech industry, such as efforts to help foreign students stay and work in the U.S.

    1. President Barack Obama’s recent remarks to my Fox News colleague Chris Wallace about Hillary Clinton’s email issues were either Machiavellian or dumb. It is difficult to tell from them whether he wants the mountain of evidence of her criminal behavior presented to a federal grand jury or he wants her to succeed him in the White House.

      He cannot have both.

  21. Email comment by Sharyl Attkisson:

    Attkisson, S. (Apr. 14, 2016). New Fast & Furious documents show Obama administration efforts to mislead Congress. Full Measure.

    It’s hard to believe, but five years after Fast and Furious, Congress is still in a pitched battle with the Obama administration over subpoenaed documents. What does the latest production of material under a federal judge’s order reveal? Justice Department emails formerly withheld under the President’s assertion of executive privilege containing quotes like these:

    --- “We would suggest that you pull the sentence that notes how many weapons we’ve recovered. It squares poorly with how many we haven’t.”

    --- “I think people will accuse us of playing with semantics when we say that you did not authorize Fast and Furious, but they find out that CRM [DOJ’s Criminal Division] did authorize wiretaps.”

    --- DOJ Criminal Division Office of International Affairs Director Molly Warlow advised that the Inspector General’s review “shouldn’t have any interplay at all [with the Mexican government’s investigation], unless we wanted to (or needed to) invoke that as reason (even if disingenuously) to shelve the Mexican inquiry. I can see nothing but mischief (and headaches for us) in the mexicans pursuing this, so I would like to see if there is a way we can turn it off, and the sooner the better.”

  22. To all potential Whistle-blowers:

    "We just want this info to get out to as many people as can be reached.

    We want to expose the corruption behind, not only this case, but to a systematic cabal -that a man's company, his personal property, and his livelihood can not only be stolen out from under his nose, but that his intellectual property (i.e., copyrights and patents) can be nullified as a means to stifle competition and push undemocratic political agendas.

    We want the world to know who Mark Zuckerberg truly is, and what his company truly represents...that they are nothing more than a puppet to an international conglomerate, a well-financed theft ring, and that it directly implicates our own government in collusion of that theft.

    We want the world to know how Ohio innovator Leader Technologies has been railroaded by our own judicial processes, and that the principal players were corrupted in their collective thinking and rulings.

    We want the world to know and recognize the true founder and owner of this wonderful social networking platform is not a single, pimply-faced geek in a Harvard dorm room, but a well-mannered, intelligent, and hard-working businessman from Columbus, Ohio.

    We want the world to know that the Facebook cabal/cartel is sitting on multi-billions of dollars in ill-gotten gains that rightfully belongs to Leader Technologies.

    We want the world to know that blatant criminal activity has taken place under the protection of well-placed governmental operatives.

    We want the world to know that Leader Technologies has said they will offer a reward to anyone who comes."

  23. Why doesn't Clinton Release the transcripts of her speeches to Goldman Sach
    The Greeks say NO, you cant bribe democracy that's black mail for you Goldman Sachs’, The media Originally, it was created as a neutral, watchdog voice for the citizens but the people have spoken, and this crisis was NOT AN ACCIDENT On September 15, 2008, they say it was necessary for Lehman Brothers to go bankrupt to charm the MARKETS??? fucking bullshit it was all about consolidating control of banking networks. Goldman Sachs had a spy in AIG and he was rubber stamping and making millions in an insurance sham they were betting against the market. The ponzi scheme had everything it needed, in September 15 2008 Leman Brothers the biggest investment bank was made and forced to declare it self bankrupt, 50 million people globally ended up below the poverty line and this crisis was not an accident Paulson AKA Goldman Sachs Refused to give out

    1. Good, 79, told Fox News by phone that the Clinton email case boils down to whether the U.S. is a nation of laws, where all citizens are equal under the law, or there is a different set of rules for the powerful. He said the ABSCAM agents thought it was important to show support for the bureau’s work in the email probe since they know what it feels like to face intense public scrutiny.

    2. So how did Mr. Blumenthal got hold of this Top Secret-plus reporting is only the first question. Why he chose to email it to Ms. Clinton in open channels is another question. So is: How did nobody on Secretary Clinton’s staff notice that this highly detailed reporting looked exactly like SIGINT from NSA? Last, why did the State Department see fit to release this email, un redacted, to the public?
      Question (1)How did Mr. Blumenthal got hold of this Top Secret-plus reporting
      Hillary Clinton in an Email to a friend was talking about starting YOGA class in one of the Email’s Hillary Clinton sent this friend a copy of highly classified NSA reports – none of which she was supposed to have any access to, And ASK what do you make of this??. Well this friend scent on a copy of this Email to Blumenthal YES you got it Blumenthal and Tyler Drumheller
      Question (2)
      Why he chose to email it to Ms. Clinton; DON'T KNOW?
      Question (3)
      How did nobody on Secretary Clinton’s staff notice that this highly detailed reporting looked exactly like SIGINT from NSA? [ INEPT]

    Attkisson, S. (Apr. 17, 2016). Dark Side of Wikipedia. Full Measure.

    April 17, 2016 — Right now, this very second, people are busily editing away on the website Wikipedia, at a rate of more than ten edits per second. There are over five million articles written in English on Wikipedia, with a thousand being added every day.

    But there's a dark side to Wikipedia you probably don't know about. The promise of accurate, neutral articles and privacy for contributors is often just a mirage, according to two insiders. They say they've been left battle-scarred after troubling personal encounters with the world's most popular encyclopedia.

    It's billed as "the encyclopedia anyone can edit." But for many, it's the opposite.

    Greg Kohs is among the blocked. Banned, he says, for challenging Wikipedia policies.


      Bokhari, A. (Apr. 16, 2016). Why There Is No Reason to Believe Facebook’s Promise Not to Influence Voters Against Trump. Breitbart.

      Gizmodo has revealed what everyone knew already: that Facebook’s employees are biased against presidential contender Donald Trump.

      In response, the social network has hurriedly insisted that it’s a “neutral” platform and won’t use its considerable power to influence the election. But who really believes them?

      The Gizmodo leaks showed employees voting in an internal poll to decide what questions they should ask CEO Mark Zuckerberg at his weekly Q&A. One of the more popular options was a loaded question concerning Republican frontrunner Donald Trump: “What responsibility does Facebook have to prevent President Trump in 2017?”

    2. SO WHO WAS ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL ? THIS CRISIS WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT" OBAMA HAS MADE NO ATTEMPT TO RECOVER ANY COMPENSATION "AND THIS CRISIS WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT" ADAIR TURNER (AKA MERRILL LYNCH) SAYS THERE WAS NO CRIME "AND STILL THIS CRISIS WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT" The seeds of deception and greed appear at the heart of the financial global meltdown Goldman Sachs and Larry Summers used the stolen like button and knowing that facebook was stolen and the cod are credited with winning obama the rigging of the 2008 and 2012 elections A crime story like no other. Reactive narcissistic leaders are not prepared to share power. Cameron and Taylor Winklevoss know the truth about facebook instead of telling the truth put your extortion hands out EVEN YOUR FATHER KNOWS HOW FACEBOOK WAS STOLEN. U.S -GERMANY Merkel speaks out about the spying scandal, David Kirkpatrick said Zuckerberg swore like a whore. (true)and all the hookers from crags list that zuckerberg dated ended in BURLAP BAGS

    Looks like the CIA and social media are one and the same. Did the CIA steal Leader Technologies' social networking invention so they could spy on the whole planet?

    Hardawar, D. (Apr. 15, 2016). The CIA is investing in social media surveillance even more. Surprising no one. Engadget.

    Now that even terrorist organizations are savvy with social media, the CIA's investment arm, In-Q-Tel, is pouring more money into companies that help make sense of noisy social networks. As The Intercept reports, In-Q-Tel quietly made investments in Dataminr, a company that uses a Twitter stream to spot trends and threats for authorities; Geofeedia, which collects geotagged social posts; PATHAR, a company that directly mines social accounts for ties to terrorism and radicalization; and TransVoyant, which also monitors social networks.

    In-Q-Tel has been making bets on similar companies over the last decade, so these investments aren't particularly shocking. But they show what's important to the agency today: It needs solid tools for sorting out everything happening on social networks. These four companies are just a handful of the 38 new investments revealed by The Intercept, via a program from this year's CEO Summit. The firm also invested in the likes of Lookout, which focuses on mobile security, and Transient Electronics, which is developing dissolvable semiconductor tech.

    1. Did the CIA steal Leader Technologies' social networking invention so they could spy on the whole planet? YES THEY DID they had all the emails on how and from who Zuckerberg STOLE the idea facebook they knew facebook was Mr London idea they knew the cod was STOLEN from Mick
