    Default Jared Kushner – Blackstone and George Soros

    I never suspected that the husband of Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, is such an interesting fellow.
    After Ivanka failed to catch the heir apparent of the Rothschild trillions, Nat Rothschild, she got the next best thing – Jared Kushner.

    IVANKA & KUSHNER – ADVISOR TO PRESIDENT
    The daughter of Ivanka Trump, who already had a West Wing Office in the White House, is now an official advisor to President Trump. Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner had already been appointed as a senior advisor to father-in-law Donald.
    The couple Kushner have a security clearance, but are “unpaid”.
    The Justice Department determined that this isn’t in violation of anti-nepotism laws. According to the state media this is actually better, because as official “advisors” the Kushners have to abide by federal ethics regulations.
    Since 1967, a federal anti-nepotism law prohibits executive branch officials from appointing their relatives to jobs.
    Trump is certainly not the first president to appoint close relatives. President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s son James served as his secretary. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s son worked as assistant staff secretary in the White House. John F. Kennedy made his brother Robert attorney general and put his brother-in-law, Sargent Shriver, in charge of the Peace Corps: http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politic...-and-the-risks

    More recently President Bill Clinton let Hillary oversee his health care changes, but she didn’t get an official White House function.

    FINANCIAL TIES – BLACKSTONE, GOLDMAN SACHS, SOROS
    There are some concerns about the financial ties of the Trump administration.
    Last January, Jared Kushner stepped down from his management positions at Kushner Companies, a family-run real estate investment firm that has taken part in more than $7 billion of acquisitions over the past decade.
    Jared will remain a beneficiary of the business, through a series of trusts that own the various real estate companies. The worth of this estate and investment business is estimated at $740 million.
    Jared Kushner didn’t disclose information on his business partners or lenders to his projects. His real estate firm has borrowed money from amongst others: the Blackstone Group, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Natixis bank (France), and Hapoalim (Israel’s largest bank).

    The CEO of the private equity giant Blackstone Group (one of the corporations of Baron Jacob Rothschild) Stephen A. Schwarzman, was made an economic adviser to Donald Trump and chairman of the “Strategic and Policy Forum”.
    Kushner is also partners in crime with BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager (I’m not sure about the details). BlackRock was founded in 1988 as part of the Blackstone Group. According to the state media BlackRock is independent from Blackstone since 1995. The founder and CEO of BlackRock is Larry Fink.

    Gary D. Cohn, the former president of Goldman Sachs, now heads the National Economic Council. Cohn’s net worth is valued between $253 million and $611 million, and his income last year was $77 million.
    Another White House official, Reed Cordish, who heads technology initiatives, accumulated assets valued at $424 million.
    The Trump’s administration is considered the wealthiest in American history, with according to Bloomberg members of his senior staff and cabinet worth an estimated $12 billion: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/31/u...show.html?_r=0

    Around the time Trump received the Republican nomination, Kushner’s firm began negotiating with the Chinese Anbang Insurance Group, with ties to some of the Communist Party’s leading families about a plan to invest billions of dollars in Kushner’s office tower at 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
    After Donald Trump became the president elect, Anbang became even more determined to close the deal with Kushner.
    They ended the talks when the deal became too controversial after weeks of negative publicity. The building had already been rescued by other prominent companies, including: Carlyle and Zara (of multibillionaire Amancio Ortega): https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/07/u...ness.html?_r=0

    The White House has acknowledged that Jared Kushner together with Michael T. Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, met the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, in late November or early December, 2016 in New York.
    The Russian ambassador is apparently quite popular amongst Trump’s partners in crime.

    The father of Jared, Charles Kushner, has been embroiled in a nasty family feud over how to distribute the business’s proceeds. At one time, Charles hired a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law, videotaped the encounter and sent the footage to his sister.
    Charles pleaded guilty, and in 2005 was sentenced to 2 years in prison for tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign donations.

    According to Forbes, the Kushner family is worth at least $1.8 billion.
    Jared’s brother, Joshua (Josh) Kushner, started his working career at… Goldman Sachs
    In 2015 Jared, Josh, and Ryan Williams (of Blackstone, who became Cadre’s CEO) founded the investment firm Cadre.
    The money came from Goldman Sachs and George Soros: https://www.forbes.com/sites/chloeso.../#4e66f6c12f42
    George Soros invested more than $250 million in Cadre: https://therealdeal.com/2017/01/27/g...startup-cadre/
    That’s the same George Soros that supported Hillary Clinton with campaign contributions and “criticising” Donald Trump, and who were together involved in a bankruptcy fraud involving the General Motors building in New York.

    On a lighter note some media claim that Ivanka Trump last February couldn’t keep her eyes of the Canadian PM (Puppet Minister) Justin Trudeau: https://www.thenews.com.pk/latest/18...es-off-Trudeau

    Here is the couple Kushner with daddy Trump, on 16 June 2015 when Donald announced his campaign for the presidency.

    Default Alex Acosta, Scott Gottlieb

    Both the Clintons and Donald Trump were good friends of Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing underage girls and running a paedophile sex ring. Epstein was convicted to a whopping 13 months in jail, for a total of 8 hours per day.
    Most accounts claim that every Sunday Epstein was locked up the whole day... This means that Epstein was locked up for a total of 56 whole days.
    Epstein arranged underage girls for Prince Andrew, and Donald Trump provided his private jet for Prince Andrew to meet with his good friend Epstein.

    ALEX ACOSTA
    Most people thought Donald Trump couldn’t do it. But against all odds he picks an even bigger scumbag than Andrew Puzder for Secretary of Labor - Alexander Acosta
    In 2008 no other than Alexander Acosta as US Attorney made the sweet deal with Jeffrey Epstein. Here is the deal in all glory: http://alt.coxnewsweb.com/palmbeachp...9091810400.pdf

    Not only did Epstein receive a very mild sentence, but it also immunised several of the paedophiles that used the “services” of Epstein’s sex ring.
    In 2011, Acosta wrote a letter in which he defended this decision:
    "Our judgment in this case, based on the evidence that was known at the time, was that it was better to have a billionaire serve time in jail, register as a sex offender and pay his victims restitution than risk a trial with a reduced likelihood of success. I supported that judgment then, and based on the state of the law as it then stood and the evidence known at the time, I would support that judgment again".
    In the 2011 letter, Acosta agreed that the work release seemed "highly unusual treatment" that "undermined the purpose of a jail sentence".

    At his senate confirmation hearing, Alexander Acosta was supposedly “grilled” by the Democrooks; where he described the secret non-prosecution deal with Jeffrey Epstein as “a good thing”.
    According to Acosta, the state had been outmatched by Epstein, whose attorneys launched "a year-long assault" on prosecutors “more aggressive” than any Acosta had previously encountered. Including following witnesses and discrediting victims by offering their social media profiles: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/poli...136073328.html

    Any idea what would happen if some small time drug dealer would harass witnesses or law enforcement agents?
    Acosta’s office didn’t file a pair of obstruction of justice charges against Epstein. The first for harassing 2 of his personal assistants to thwart FBI agents from serving investigation subpoenas. The second for dissuading a female victim from talking with agents.
    But of course for billionaire pervert Epstein and his friends the laws do not apply.
    Kent Frank, 50, was sentenced to 40 years in prison. Alex Acosta declared in a news release that society “cannot permit such individuals to seek sanctuary in our community (…)
    We will prosecute sexual abuse of children aggressively, both when the targets are children in our community and when the defendants travel to target children abroad
    ”.
    Kent Frank 40 years, Jeffrey Epstein 56 days…

    Acosta was head of the civil rights division of the Department of Justice during the Bush administration. Between 2003 and 2005, the Department of Justice Inspector General let Bradley Schlozman do the hiring. Under Acosta’s watch, Schlozman illegally purged “liberal” attorneys in favour of hiring more conservative, “real Americans” (Schlozman’s words).
    Acosta agreed this “conduct should have never happened, I deeply regret it”: http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...ood-thing.html

    Acosta also oversaw the settlement with UBS, a bank from Switzerland which helped 20,000 Americans with assets of about $20 billion evade taxes.
    The bank paid $780 million and agreed to hand over the names of “some of their clients”: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...021802541.html

    Here you can see Alex Acosta standing to the right of Ivanka and Jared Kushner. I sometimes see politicians and think they’d sell their own mother for a dime; Acosta’s face false in this category.



    SCOTT GOTTLIEB – BIG PHARMA HEADS THE FDA
    Donald Trump has chosen Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a conservative health policy expert with deep ties to the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, to lead the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
    Gottlieb was healthcare analyst at the investment bank Alex, Brown & Son, who decided he could make more money by entering pharmaceutics as a Dr.
    Since 2005 he is a writer for Forbes magazine.

    Scott Gottlieb is completely tied up with the pharmaceutical industry.
    Gottlieb is a director at Tolero Pharmaceuticals and Daiichi Sankyo Inc., and on the investment board of GlaxoSmithKline (the pharmaceutical giant that sells the highly toxic AZT).
    Gottlieb has earlier worked on the development of the FDA's policies related to the approval of fixed dose combination drugs for the treatment of AIDS-victims.

    Gottlieb is also a partner at T.R. Winston (a merchant bank) and a venture partner at investment firm New Enterprise Associates, which invest heavily in health care and biopharma.
    From 2013 through 2015 Gottlieb received some $413,700 from drug companies for “consulting, speaking or other services”. In 2015 alone, he collected $199,951 from eight drug companies, most of it coming from Vertex, GlaxoSmithKline, and Daiichi Sankyo (see the following picture).


    When he was appointed by President George Bush Jr. for the FDA in 2005 Gottlieb’s conflicts of interest raised eyebrows. Gottlieb had to recuse himself for up to a year from matters involving 9 drug companies, including Eli Lilly, Roche, Procter & Gamble and Sanofi-Aventis.
    Some of the companies involved with Gottlieb, have a controversial reputation. In 2012, GlaxoSmithKline paid $3 billion to settle charges of improper marketing and other practices. In 2009, Eli Lilly paid $1.4 billion to settle similar charges.
    In 2009, Pfizer settled a health care fraud for $2.3 billion: http://www.latimes.com/business/hilt...315-story.html

    Gottlieb has repeatedly criticised FDA’s “flawed culture” in which the safety of a drug is too much of a concern. Gottlieb will try to dramatically cut regulations governing food, drugs, cosmetics, dietary supplements and tobacco, so the pharmaceutical industry doesn’t have to worry about something minor like the health of their victims.
    Of course this is not a drastic change from the policy under the Obama administration. FDA review for new drugs has fallen from an average of about 18 months a decade or two ago to about 12 months more recently, while the percentage of approvals of drug applications has risen to more than 90% in 2015.
    Gottlieb was chosen over Jim O'Neill, a libertarian investor close to Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel.
    A survey by Mizuho Securities USA Inc of 53 pharmaceutical executives found that 72 % favoured Gottlieb over other potential candidates: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-us...-idUSKBN16H2AM

    Default Elaine Chao

    It could be funny if it wasn’t so horrible...
    The trail of drugs trafficking, money laundering, Henry Kissinger, leads to Elaine L. Chao and back to Donald Trump, George Bush and the Clintons: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...s-for-Oil-wars

    President Trump nominated Elaine L. Chao (born in Taiwan) to Secretary of Transportation, which the Senate confirmed by a vote of 93-6 (her husband Senator Mitch McConnell didn’t refrain from voting…).
    Elaine Chao has earlier served as a Reagan administration official and secretary of labor in the George W. Bush cabinets (from 2001 to 2009). Elaine Chao is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

    Elaine’s father, James S.C. Chao, was a classmate at Jiao Tong University of Jiang Zemin, the president of China in the ’90s. They have kept in touch ever since.
    Through James Chao, Elaine and Mitch McConnell met Jiang several times, both in Beijing and Washington. When Jiang visited the White House in 1997, he met privately with Elaine and Mitch McConnell, before a state dinner hosted by President Clinton; Senator McConnell again met Jiang the next morning.
    In 1999, Elaine and Mitch appeared at the University of Louisville with Chinese Ambassador Li Zhaoxing.

    When James Chao emigrated from Taiwan to the USA, upon settling in New York, he founded the Foremost Maritime Corporation. Foremost transports goods to China and buys its ships from the China State Shipbuilding Corporation.
    Senator Mitch McConnell’s ties to the Chao family go back to the late 1980s, when James Chao began donating to his campaigns. In 1993, McConnell married Elaine Chao.
    In April 2008, James Chao gave Elaine and Mitch $5 to $25 million to help the McConnells get over the dip in their stock portfolio after the financial crisis earlier that year. The generous gift made McConnell one of the wealthiest in the Senate, with an estimated net worth of $22.8 million.

    In 1989, Elaine asked John Huang to raise money for Republican senators. In 1993, Huang, then head of the Lippo Bank (based in Indonesia), arranged a coalition of Chinese banks and individuals to sponsor Chao’s visit to Los Angeles as the new head of United Way.
    Huang also gave McConnell $2,000 in illegal donations as part of a foreign money-laundering scheme.
    Elaine has been a director for Protective Life Corp., which owns 50% of CRC Protective Life Insurance. Lippo co-owns the rest of the Hong Kong-based insurance company with China Resources Holdings Co., a front company for China’s People Liberation Army.
    Lippo is controlled by the Riady family and was at the centre of the Clinton “Chinagate” fundraising scandal. Lippo´s chief executive James T. Riady pled guilty to a felony charge for illegally donating to the campaign of Bill Clinton.

    One of Elaine’s patrons was Maurice “Hank” Greenberg.
    Greenberg is chairman and chief executive of the New York-based American International Group (AIG), which does a lot of business in China.
    Greenberg and AIG, through its employee PAC, have donated thousands of dollars to Mitch McConnell’s campaigns. Mitch also received large sums for speeches for AIG.
    AIG has also hired Henry A. Kissinger, for his connections (including in China).

    Chao also served on the board of directors for Bloomberg Philanthropies, the foundation started by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
    Elaine served as studies advisor to Heritage as well. Bloomberg gave Heritage $180,000 in 1998 and at least $100,000 a year for more than a decade through his Starr Foundation for writing favourably about trading with China: http://www.wnd.com/2016/11/trump-sho...s-elaine-chao/

    The China connection (again) leads to Henry Kissinger.
    Kissinger has visited China more than 80 times since his first clandestine 1971 trip.
    After Donald Trump became US president elect, Kissinger swiftly visited Chinese President Xi Jinping.
    Kissinger was amongst a select group of US experts that met Xi in February 2012 before he became president.
    Other Americans on this short list were former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and… Elaine Chao: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...iend-kissinger

    Now for the shocking stuff…
    In August 2014, the ship “Ping May” of the Foremost Maritime Corporation of daddy Chao was in Santa Marta en route to the Netherlands.
    Before it could leave the port, Colombian inspectors discovered, amidst its load of coal, approximately 40 kilograms (about ninety pounds) of cocaine in 40 separate packages
    : https://www.thenation.com/article/mi...pping-company/

    The following photo shows James Chao (second from right), at the christening of the “Ping May” in Shanghai.



    Elaine Chao has also served on the board of Wells Fargo, one of the biggest banks in the world.
    In 2012, Wells Fargo paid a $175 million settlement after it was accused of charging higher fees and rates to minority borrowers (maybe not of Chinese origins…) than to white borrowers with the same “credit risk”.
    Even more interesting is that in 2010, Wachovia – purchased by Wells Fargo in 2008 – paid a settlement of $160 million for laundering over $100 million in drugs money for “Mexican and Colombian drug cartels” (I didn’t know that Bush, Clinton and Kissinger are Mexican Columbians…).
    The bank admitted that it had failed to “apply the proper anti-laundering strictures” regarding the handling of $378.4 billion in currency exchanges with Mexico between 2004 and 2007.

    In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the big banks received huge government bailouts (Wells Fargo got $25 billion from the US government).
    According to the UN, proceeds from the global drug trade was “the only liquid investment capital” that ultimately helped keep Wells Fargo and other banks afloat.
    Wells Fargo also profited, and continues to profit, at the other end of the “war on drug” as a major investor in the prison-industrial complex, specifically with heavy investments in the GEO Group, the second largest private prison company in the USA: http://www.alternet.org/economy/whats-wrong-wells-fargo

    Boycotting the elections seems like something that ensures that the anti-liberty party duopoly will continue to reign supreme.

    In fact it makes me wonder how many people who suggest this idea are actually honest people, or trolls trying to quash the resistance against what is essentially a one-party stranglehold on Washington DC.

    The reason why boycott can be an effective protest is that it hurts people you disapprove of in profit. It's a good free market libertarian way to exercise power you have through your free choice, no offensive force involved. In a libertarian society with less regulated corporations, that would be one of the major checks on companies harmful to the collective. The "collective" word may sound scary but it isn't collecitiv-ism, it's just individuals choosing to use their money essentially as speech.

    But the key here is that financial boycott has a mechanism for bringing about change. "Boycotting" the vote just makes the people you are supposed to be protesting smile. Who do you think is happy when D + R adds up to 99%? The very people you are trying to protest! Hand in a blank ballot, write-in your neighbor, whatever, vote third party, whatever. Any of that is better strategically than staying home, unless you like our two party-system as it is. I would suggest voting for the most popular 3rd party in every election you could, just to create an opening for something that isn't D or R. But you may have a different opinion, whatever. Just don't stay home.
    Authoritarianism and neoconservatism cannot be made great again.
    Trump was an enemy of Ron Paul, before he was an enemy of Rand Paul, before he was an enemy of the Freedom Caucus.
    One thing that he has remained consistent in is his hate of liberty and those who promote it.

    Which resistance are you talking about? Are you talking about the Tea party that's financed by the Koch brothers (both in Forbes top 10 billionaire list)?

    The objective of political elections is to pacify us into submission.
    The elite keep getting richer over the backs of the poor slaves.

    Ultimately it is mental slavery that makes all of this possible. An important role in this scam is fooling us into believing that our wonderful democratic rights (to vote for the corrupt puppets of the elite) guarantee our freedom...

    Over here in the Kingdom of the Netherlands where I survive, we are ruled by the ruthless Orange-Nassau family.
    We have the “right” to vote for subordinates of King Willem-Alexander...

    The situation is similar in Britain.
    Canada is ruled by a Governor General selected by Queen Elizabeth, and is in fact still a colony of England: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...British-Empire

    The USA is ruled by the one party Democrook-Republicons; you have the right to vote, which could actually mean something...

    In the last US presidential election, the only 2 candidates that stood a chance were Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
    Both are puppets for Goldman Sachs.
    The husband of the daughter of Hillary, Chelsea, is a Goldman Sachs alumnus.
    The brother-in-law of the daughter of Donald, Ivanka, is a Goldman Sachs alumnus.

    Both have been good friends with paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who in turn was arranging underage girls for the sexual appetites of Prince Andrew.
    Both are involved in money laundering of drugs money...

    When our constitutional rights are violated in the worst ways imaginable there’s nothing we can do about it (at least not as one individual against a powerful government).

    It is stupid to vote in a dictatorship that is sold to us as a democracy.
    Not voting won’t make this place a better place, but it could be a first step in the process of waking up.
    Another important step in the process of waking up is to stop listening to the telescreen (subliminal messages...).
