    Earlier this month, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) and Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) reported that American billionaires have seen their combined net worth grow by $584 billion in the 3 months since the Covid-19 “pandemic” was started on 18 March and made more than 45 million Americans unemployed. The five richest billionaires in the U.S. - Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, and Larry Ellison - saw their collective wealth grow by $101.7 billion from 18 March to 17 June 17. Since 18 March, the combined wealth of America's billionaires has grown from $2.948 trillion to $3.531 trillion.

    McKinsey has earlier (before corona) reported that up to one-third of US workers could be unemployed by 2030 because computers and robots have made man obsolete, adding around “60 percent of occupations have at least 30 percent of constituent work activities that could be automated”. According to economist David Rosenberg: Bloomberg reported that unemployed US workers should have received $214 billion in benefits, early June, but had “only” gotten $146 billion. The Kentucky Career Center kept people waiting 10 hours before their unemployment claim help was handled: https://www.globalresearch.ca/america-dysfunctional-economy/5716506

    Here’s Joe Biden in action, Lancaster, Pennsylvania on 6/25/2020. He talks about mental health care... And then says: “now we have over 120 million dead from COVID”. The video is only 23 seconds. And is cut off after Biden once again shows that his mental condition makes him unfit for president. I would like to hear what he says to follow that up (I guess that even Biden would know that this is a mistake).

    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. 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. 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

    Congress is readying proposals to rebuke President Donald Trump’s plans to pull about 10,000 U.S. troops from Germany amid dissatisfaction with the administration’s rationale for the move and concerns it will weaken NATO. As Trump confirmed rumored plans to draw down American military personnel levels in Germany in the coming months, a bipartisan group of senators led by Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney proposed an amendment to the Senate’s version of the annual defense policy bill that would freeze troop numbers in Germany. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith, D-Wash., said separately Tuesday that the plan seemed strategically unsound and that Congress should block the administration until it makes its case. Legislative action is likely in the House on Wednesday when Smith’s panel marks up the HASC version of the bill. “It is possible that there is a scenario where repositioning troops out of Germany is in our national security interests. The president has not made that case to date, the has not made that case to date, and the president is doing it in a very haphazard manner,” Smith told reporters. “We need to know what they’re talking about, and it’s appropriate for the moment to say: ‘Yeah, hold up until we know where you’re going and what you’re doing on this.' We don’t think it’s a good idea.”

    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). Bank Hapoalim settled the 2 cases for more than $900 million. Berman commented: In the first case, Bank Hapoalim helped launder millions in bribes and kickbacks paid to officials in FIFA. Between 2010 and 2015, Hapoalim’s Miami branch laundered illicit payments to FIFA officials, including former head of Colombian football and a member of FIFA’s executive committee Luis Bedoya. In 2015, Bedoya was banned from international soccer and was (is?) awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty pleading guilty to racketeering and wire fraud. Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowsk commented: In the second case, Bank Hapoalim pleaded guilty to aiding U.S. customers in setting up accounts under false names to evade taxes on more than $7.6 billion in deposits. For this second case alone, Bank Hapoalim agreed to pay $874 million in penalties, tax arrears and forfeited assets: http://archive.is/KOtzE

    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/en/following-the-magnitsky-money (http://archive.is/44HQS)

    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. 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.

    This time a mere 37 were arrested... On 21 June, a reported 400 were arrested for protesting against the COVID-19 police state: https://www.dutchnews.nl/news/2020/06/400-arrested-in-the-hague-as-troublemakers-clash-with-police-after-demo/ When some 5000 people in Amsterdam were protesting against the death of George Floyd – who died all the way in the USA – the police did nothing. That was on the orders of the Mayor selected by King Willem-Alexander, Femke Halsema, who was more criticised than the protesters (this is not the usual way of reporting): https://www.iamexpat.nl/expat-info/dutch-expat-news/black-lives-matter-thousands-protesters-gather-dam-square-amsterdam

    That may be how things were intended in the Constitution but it is not how things are, there has been a long running campaign to strip the President of his power over the executive branch and create an independent deepstate. And The US Attorney would have plenty of power to prosecute federal crimes.

    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-hapoalim-to-pay-904-million-for-role-in-fifa-bribe-scandal-us-tax-evasion/

    I’m no lawyer, but I really doubt that a “simple” US attorney is authorised to prosecute the misdeeds of Joe Biden in his official capacity as Vice President. Trump supporter Bud Cummins, who contacted Geoffrey Berman and Rudy Giuliani about the allegations against Manafort and Biden in the Ukraine, has lobbied for the Ukraine. He admitted that he didn’t know if there was any merit to the accusations by Yuriy Lutsenko and Viktor Shokin. President Donald knew/knows about these allegations and has all the authority to have this properly investigates, so either: 1) Trump is covering up for “creepy” Joe Biden, or; 2) These allegations are unfounded.

    Report: Tulsa Arena Management Sabotaged Trump Rally AttendanceA June 25 report by Armstrong Economics claimed that early in the day on Saturday BOK Center staff had placed stickers on every other seat in the arena barring use thereby cutting in half the attendance of the 19,199 seat arena. Original article from Armstrong Electronics detailing the corruption in BOK center: Political Corruption at Trump Rally Excerpts: Entry to the “Secure Area” NOT the BOK center was about 5 blocks away where you had to pass “screeners” who took your temperature, made you put on a face mask and gave you a green band to proceed to Secret Service Security. When the temperature screeners left their post (2 hrs before rally start) - the entire entry to the BOK Trump rally was shut down. The BOK center just before the doors opened had blocked off every other seat in the arena so the arena could only hold about 9500 people. (Stickers on every other seat) BOK center was only letting 100 in at a time. When temp screeners left their posts thousands could not get in to the first checkpoint because the temperature screeners had to put green wrist band on you to gain access to the Secret Service security checkpoint. No green band— no entry to the security check point.

    Rep. Thomas Massie isn't in a forgive-and-forget kind of mood. The libertarian-leaning House member on Tuesday crushed his Republican primary opponent 88%-12% in the northern Kentucky district he's represented since 2013. That despite several high-profile House Republicans initially backing, and sending campaign contributions to, his primary opponent. House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming in the spring criticized Massie over delaying tactics on passage of a coronavirus economic relief bill. The proposal became law, but not before Massie used parliamentary tactics to force lawmakers to return to Washington as the pandemic worsened. The feud was an extension of tensions between House Republican leaders and Massie, an MIT-trained engineer and multiple patent holder who frequent dissents from the party-line on votes. Particularly when, he says, party leaders disregard Republican principles of small government and limited spending. Massie, headed for another term in Congress after dominating the all-important Republican primary, remembers where Cheney stood when it mattered.
