    Trump Election Consultant Firm Cambridge Analytica Execs Caught Discussing Extortion,Fake News

    All the UK media reporting making headlines today has not been vetted yet by investigative wing of US MSM media and should be read with grains of salt. Let's wait till all the facts come out before jumping to conclusions.






    Cambridge Analytica Execs Caught Discussing Extortion and Fake News

    In a series of undercover videos filmed over the last year, Britain's Channel 4 News caught executives at Cambridge Analytica appear to say they could extort politicians, send women to entrap them, and help proliferate propaganda to help their clients. The sting operation was conducted as part of an ongoing investigation into Cambridge Analytica, a data consulting firm that worked for President Trump's 2016 campaign.
    The video follows an investigation by The Guardian and The New York Times, which revealed that Cambridge and its related company, SCL, harvested data on 50 million Facebook users, and may have kept it, despite promises to Facebook that they deleted the information in 2015. Cambridge and SCL have denied these accusations, and in a statement to Channel 4, the company also denied "any allegation that Cambridge Analytica or any of its affiliates use entrapment, bribes, or so-called 'honey-traps' for any purpose whatsoever."

    The video evidence suggests otherwise.

    'The Kushner s*** is greasy': Bannon predicts Mueller will 'roll up' president's son-in-law

    Jared Kushner, Shanda

    How the scion of one tri-state crime family married into another, in a story equal parts ‘Sopranos’ and ‘Game of Thrones.’

    By James Kirchick
    ...
    Determined to prevent Billy from testifying, Charles set up a honey trap for his brother-in-law in a motel room—fully equipped with video cameras—and paid a prostitute $10,000. Kushner then sent a tape of the assignation to his sister, who promptly turned her brother’s attempt at blackmail over to the authorities.

    Kushner was also implicated in the simultaneous downfall of his political protégé McGreevy, who became infamous for a live televised resignation during which he announced to the world that he was “a gay American.” Thanks to this cynical deflection, most today remember McGreevy as having done nothing worse than commit marital infidelity under the duress of his decision to marry a woman and live his life in the closet. But the main reason McGreevy was forced to step down from his post was that his former lover, an Israeli man named Golan Cipel whom he had put on the state payroll in a make-work job, was threatening to sue him for sexual harassment.
    So, who was Golan Cipel? McGreevy had met Cipel several years earlier in Israel, and it was Charles Kushner who sponsored the young Israeli’s work visa to the United States and then generously employed Cipel in one of his companies before the governor hired him. Some speculated that Kushner, recognizing the blackmail potential of this arrangement, persuaded Cipel to threaten McGreevy with exposure. That would explain why, 10 minutes before McGreevy’s tearful confession, a lawyer representing Cipel called McGreevy’s office conveying the message that the jilted lover would keep their affair secret if the governor fulfilled an odd request: grant a charter to Touro College allowing it to open a medical school in New Jersey—a medical school for which Charles Kushner had raised money and hoped to name after his late mother. (At the time, Kushner, through his lawyer, denied any involvement.)

    “Morning Joe” co-hosts claim that the White House attempted to blackmail the morning show
    “Kushner told Scarborough that he would need to personally apologize to Trump in exchange for getting Enquirerowner David Pecker to stop the story,” Sherman wrote. “Scarborough says he refused, and the Enquirerpublished the story in print on June 5, headlined ‘Morning Joe Sleazy Cheating Scandal!'”

    Facebook security chief reportedly leaving company


    News of Alex Stamos' intended departure comes as Facebook deals with the fallout over the consultancy Cambridge Analytica, and its misuse of Facebook user data.


    • Richard Nieva

    20 March 2018 9:33 am AEDT

    Alex Stamos, Facebook's outspoken chief security officer, is leaving the company, according to a report Monday by The New York Times.
    The apparent reason for the departure is Facebook's handling of misinformation and disclosures related to the company's investigation into Russian trolls abusing Facebook's services during the 2016 US election. Stamos reportedly clashed with top executives including COO Sheryl Sandberg over how the company should handle the situation.
    According to the Times report, Stamos initially told the company he wanted to leave in December, after his day-to-day duties were reassigned. He was convinced to stay until August to help see through the transition of his responsibilities.
    The apparent departure comes as Facebook deals with a controversy over Cambridge Analytica and its misuse of data from 50 million Facebook accounts.

    Facebook value drops by $37bn amid privacy backlash

    2 hours ago
    Facebook's shares have fallen sharply, wiping $37bn off the firm's value, as it faces questions from US and UK politicians about its privacy rules.

    The social network is under fire after reports on how Cambridge Analytica, which some believe helped Donald Trump win the US election, acquired and used Facebook's customer information.

    Theresa May's spokesman called the allegations "very concerning".
    The UK data protection body is seeking a warrant to search the firm's offices.

    Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham says it will be used to look at the databases and servers used by British data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica.

    The recent controversy and escalating scandal over Facebook's decision to ban Trump-linked political data firm Cambridge Analytica over the use of data harvested through a personality app under the guise of academic research has opened a veritable Pandora's box of scandal for the Silicon Valley social media giant.

    Carol Davidsen, who served as Obama's director of integration and media analytics during his 2012 campaign (in her LinkedIn profile she says she was responsible for "The Optimizer" & "Narwhal" big data analytics platforms), claims - with evidence, that Facebook found out about a massive data-mining operation they were conducting to "suck out the whole social graph" in order to target potential voters. After Facebook found out, they knowingly allowed them to continue doing it because they were supportive of the campaign.
    "[M]ore than 1 million Obama backers who signed up for the [Facebook-based app] gave the campaign permission to look at their Facebook friend lists. In an instant, the campaign had a way to see the hidden young voters. Roughly 85% of those without a listed phone number could be found in the uploaded friend lists. What’s more, Facebook offered an ideal way to reach them," reads an article Davidsen posted as a prelude to her postings.
    In a series of Sunday night tweets, Davidsen explained how the Obama campaign was able to use Facebook data to "append to our email lists."

    When Facebook found out about the data mining for political purposes - the same thing they just banned Cambridge Analytica for doing, they "didn't stop us."
    Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing.
    — Carol Davidsen (@cld276) March 19, 2018
    Facebook even "came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn't have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side."

    So - it seems that Facebook has selective standards when it comes to their data collection policy.

    I don't think that this video can be seen much longer...
    Cambridge Analytica was the company that gave us Brexit and President Trump...
    Cambridge Analytica is a subsidary of the SCL Group.

    The best part of the video is Alexander Nix, who explains that they send people with a bribe or some girls to seduce the target (and leak the video).


    Steve Bannon of Robert Mercer-owned media outlet Breitbart News joined the Board of Cambridge Analytica. Trump Advisor Kellyanne Conway also has close ties to Robert Mercer. Mercer funds Cambridge Analytica. At one time Michael Flynn worked for the parent company of Cambridge Analytica – SCL Group.

    Most media outlets claim that Robert Mercer is the largest shareholder in Cambridge Analytica.
    From shortly after its inception in 2005 until June 2015, the largest of the 15 shareholders of the UK Strategic Communications Laboratories Ltd. (in 2015 renamed to SCL Group) was Vincent Tchenguiz.
    Tchenguiz has been involved with the Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash, who was involved with (once Trump’s campaign manager) Paul Manafort.

    There are also stories that the British authorities have started an investigation into Cambridge Analytica violating privacy, by using Facebook data...

    For somebody willing to look behind the "news" there is a lot more "hot" info!

    For some reason Christopher Wylie has been blocked from Facebook and other social media...

    He also explains the important role of Aleksandr Kogan.
    They not only used the "personal" Facebook data, but also information on the friends network.

    Trump's third national security advisor John Bolton shares at least one thing in common with his first one, Michael Flynn: both men have ties to Cambridge Analytica, a political data firm at the center of a new Facebook privacy firestorm.

    In a new story, The New York Times reports that John Bolton's political action committee The John Bolton Super PAC hired Cambridge Analytica in August 2014, "months after the political data firm was founded and while it was still harvesting the Facebook data."
    In Cambridge Analytica's early days, Bolton's PAC funneled $1.2 million toward polling and "behavioral microtargeting with psychographic messaging" over the course of two years.

    Cambridge Analytica's Facebook data harvesting hasn't just prompted lawsuits over the privacy violations -- it's now sparking a legal battle over its role in US elections. ABC News has learned that watchdog group Common Cause has filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission and Justice Department alleging that Cambridge Analytica broke federal election laws barring foreigners from participating in the strategies of US political campaigns. According to Common Cause, the UK firm ignored warnings to avoid involvement in American political committees and provided its Facebook user data to help target campaign efforts that included the presidential runs of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz as well as a John Bolton super PAC.

    More than a year ago, it was claimed that “highly reliable sources” confirm that the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division increasingly focuses on the connection between Russia’s cyber-disinformation efforts and Cambridge Analytica.

    Cambridge Analytica, which is partly owned by billionaire and Trump-backer Robert Mercer, once boasted that it had Steve Bannon, Michael Flynn and other key members of the Trump team on its Board of Directors or Advisory Board. Bannon received a six-figure “consulting fee”.

    Mercer invested at least $10 million in Cambridge Analytica because he was impressed with its work for his friend, Tea Party sympathiser L. Brent Bozell III. Mercer was also a friend of the British Brexit leader Nigel Farage.
    Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon, worked for the Mercer-owned media outlet — Breitbart News. Trump Advisor Kellyanne Conway also has close ties to Mercer.
    Paul Manafort’s important client, billionaire Dmitry Firtash (with close ties to Gazprom), owned a major stake in SCL.

    One of the connections between the Russians, WikiLeaks, Cambridge Analytica and the Trump Campaign was through Russia’s Alfa Bank. The SCL Group has financial ties to Alfa Bank, and Trump advisor Richard Burt, sat on Alfa’s advisory board.
    The suspicion is that SCL and WikiLeaks used the Alfa Bank server to transmit voting records, key DNC/Clinton emails and documents to communicate with the Trump Campaign to swiftly capitalise on the WikiLeaks releases.
    Trump Campaign was able to so quickly exploit WikiLeaks’ data dump of the tens of thousands of pages hacked from the DNC, Clinton Campaign, and John Podesta databases. Literally within hours of some of these public releases by WikiLeaks, starting on July 22, 2016 on the eve of the Democratic National Convention and continuing periodically thereafter, the Trump Campaign was sending micro-targeted bots and messaging to the Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts of key voters battleground states
    Roger Stone bragged that he was in touch with Julian Assange and Russian hackers using the name “Guccifer 20”. In August 2016, Stone correctly predicted back that it would soon be Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s “turn in the barrel”.

    Bots flooded US social media with pro-Trump and anti-Clinton stories. Mostly with links to “fake news” stories from Breitbart News, Infowars, RT (Russia Today), Sputnik News or other “news” sources.
    Using Cambridge Analytica’s data and messaging strategies, the Cruz campaign was able to send different messages to voters in the same voting district.
    FBI Director James Comey through the release of his 28 October 2016 letter about “reopening” of the closed Clinton email investigation was the (arranged) icing on the cake...

    SCL claims to have access to thousands of “data points” about every American man, woman, and child, as well as a massive database on foreign nationals.
    SCL helped the St. Lucian government in the Caribbean, and participated in Nigeria’s notoriously corrupt 2007 election in which it helped the ruling People’s Democratic Party to discourage opposition voters by organising “anti-poll rallies” on the day of the election: http://blog.mccallionlaw.com/fbi-inv...dge-analytica/

    I wish Trump would sign an Executive Order that gets rid of super PACS, and puts a serious cap on how much can be spent on a campaign.

    Local office - $500 K
    State office - $1 million
    National office - $2 million

    or some such.

    Corporations are composed of people, but ultra progressive views like yours would have people believe they are some vague abstraction. If you tax a corporation, then the money comes out of someone's pocket. The money doesn't come out of the bricks as if you're panning for gold.

    Paul Manafort’s important client, Dmitry Firtash, owned a major stake in SCL.
    It isn’t regularly mentioned in the mainstream or alternative media that Clinton’s Podesta used to work with/for the Mercury of Donald Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort.

    From 2012 to 2014, Mercury LLC (of Manafort and his employee Rick Gates) and the Podesta Group were “lobbying” for the European Center for Modern Ukraine (ECFMU).
    Reportedly Podesta and Manafort had to lobby the message that Ukraine’s 2012 election was really democratic and that the country’s leaders wanted to move closer to the West.
    ECFMU paid $790,000 to Mercury and Podesta Group in 2013 alone, though it is not clear where the money came from: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6546021


    According to Greg Palast; Cambridge Analytica is just one of many companies that spin elections - like i360 (of the Koch Brothers) and DataTrust (of Karl Rove).
    Of course the parent company of Cambridge Analytica, SCL Group, is based in London and for some reason BBC reporter Palast is more critical of politics in the US than in Britain.
    Palast goes as far as claiming that US papers won’t do the kind of “deep investigation” performed by the Guardian. For some reason the Guardian is better at “exposing” US politrics, but calls the Kingdom of Britain – a “democracy”…

    Palast calls Karl Rove “Bush’s Brain” and his principal funder, Paul Singer, “The Vulture”.
    DataTrust and i360 use credit card purchases, cable TV choices and other personal info, which – according to Palast - is more revealing than the Facebook data used by Cambridge Analytica.

    According to Palast, the greatest threat to the US “democracy” is “caging” – purging the voter rolls of Black and Hispanic voters (that on average vote more Democrat than Republican).
    According to Palast, “Republicans” are a bigger threat to the US political system than “Democrats”: https://canadiandimension.com/articl...-and-datatrust

    Most people believe that they are too “smart” to be fooled.
    In the following video, former Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix boasts about how psychological profiles are used to target an audience more effectively.


    The most common reasons for manipulating people are advertising for better sales or voting. There are even specialised companies that supposedly improve communication by training, but in reality profile personality to make it easier to manipulate them (for their employers).

    In 1928, Sigmund Freud’s nephew Edwards Bernays in “Propaganda” wrote in the opening:
    The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
    Yasha Levine argues in his book “Surveillance Valley: The Secret Military History of the Internet”:
    The use of manipulative, psychologically driven advertising and marketing techniques to sell us products, lifestyles, and ideas has been the foundation of modern American society (...) It oozes out of every pore on our body politic. It’s what holds our ailing consumer society together.
    And when it comes to marketing candidates and political messages, using data to influence people and shape their decisions has been the holy grail of the computer age, going back half a century.
    Psychometric profiling is the process by which your actions are used to determine your personality. The most common model used is the OCEAN model, named for the 5 main personality traits: Openness, Contentiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism.
    These profiles give advertisers, political strategists and employers insights into users’ beliefs, behaviours and motivations. By appealing to these underlying traits on an individual or group level, psychometrically-informed advertisements are more persuasive.
    See for example the following Guide on categories (in the USA).


    Auto manufacturer Ford conducted experiments in Vietnam with mobile ads timed at “emotional moments” of sporting events and observed boosts in sales that exceeded their expectations.
    There used to be a time that surveys were needed to determine somebody’s personality. These days algorithms use data in computer systems (e.g. from Facebook) to predict somebody’s psychological composition. After his groundbreaking finding in 2013, in 2015 Kosinski demonstrated that simple algorithms can better predict a person's personality than his/her own friends, co-workers or partners.
    In 2017, a group consisting of Kosinski wrote:
    Building on recent advancements in the assessment of psychological traits from digital footprints, this paper demonstrates the effectiveness of psychological mass persuasion – that is, the adaptation of persuasive appeals to the psychological characteristics of large groups of individuals with the goal of influencing their behaviour.
    Micro targeting isn’t only done on an individual level, but also in (preferably small) groups. When they know the average personality of a group of internet users (for example a Whatsapp Group) they can customise the messages to manipulate the group as a whole. With internet search engines that (don’t) find information depending on your location this strategy could be used internet wide in the not too distant future.
    See for example the image that shows estimated levels of “neuroticism” by US state (darker are more neurotic).


    The consumer credit reporting agency Experian holds data on over a billion people in Europe and the US. It advertises its psychometric capabilities and earned over $4.6 billion in revenue in 2015. Among the offerings of Experian Marketing Services is Audience IQ.
    Both the Conservative and Labour parties in the UK are clients of Experian.

    Until 2017, the SCL Group had manipulated elections in 20 countries, and is not the only company that uses psychometric profiling to manipulate people.
    Some other companies (including start-ups):
    IBM;
    Nielsen (that acquired neuromarketing company Innerscope in 2015);
    Affectiva;
    RealEyes;

    In November 2017, the Brazilian Ponte Estratégia Planejamento e Pesquisa LTDA, announced a partnership with Cambridge Analytica (that it is more named than its London based parent company SCL Group) – CA Ponte.

    It was announced that CA Ponte was in touch with representatives of 3 presidential candidates in Brazil, but not all the names have been disclosed.
    The only named party is the Social Democracy Party, then chaired by Tasso Jereissati, but supposedly they didn't finalise the deal

    In March, the controversy erupted over Cambridge Analytica’s illegal use of Facebook data, and Brazilian prosecutors said they had opened an investigation into whether the SCL Group had acted illegally in Brazil by using the data of millions of Brazilians (violating the non-existent Brazilian privacy laws?).
    Director of CA Ponte, Andre Torretta, responded by claiming that the partnership with SCL was suspended and changed its name back to Ponte Estrategia, but in reality “it won’t change anything, in spite of all this confusion”: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article...nd-partnership

    In August, Bolsonaro's son and congressman, Eduardo Bolsonaro, announced that former chief advisor to Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, would advise Brazilian Presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro for the October elections.
    Steve Bannon, who performed his magic on Jair Bolsonaro’s campaign, was/is of course part of the SCL Group (but we can’t blame our dumb, deaf and blind media for not reporting on this link).

    Bannon had made himself available to help ”in the form of giving internet tips, analysis, interpreting data, that type of stuff”: https://www.telesurtv.net/english/ne...0815-0003.html

    Facebook Says Russian Firms 'Scraped' Data, Some for Facial Recognition

    Updated 8:59 a.m. today

    By Jack Nicas, New York Times
    San Francisco — On the same day Facebook announced that it had carried out its biggest purge yet of American accounts peddling disinformation, the company quietly made another revelation: It had removed 66 accounts, pages and apps linked to Russian firms that build facial recognition software for the Russian government.

    Facebook said Thursday that it had removed any accounts associated with SocialDataHub and its sister firm, Fubutech, because the companies violated its policies by scraping data from the social network.

    A top Trump aide asked an Israeli company for help to take Ted Cruz out of the 2016 election

    By David Gilbert Oct 9, 2018

    A top Trump campaign aide asked an Israeli private intelligence firm — with links to the IDF, Cambridge Analytica and a Russian billionaire — to devise a “social media manipulation” strategy to hurt Trump’s political rivals during the primaries and the election, according to a New York Times report.
    Rick Gates, then Trump’s deputy campaign manager, reportedly contacted Psy-Group in 2016, seeking fake online personas to help sway some 5,000 delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention by attacking Ted Cruz — Trump’s main opponent for the Republican nomination.
    A second proposal outlined how Trump’s team could use opposition research and “complementary intelligence activities” about Hillary Clinton and people close to her to win the election.
    The secret proposals were codenamed “Project Rome,” with those involved also given codenames — Trump was “Lion”, Clinton was “Forest”, and Cruz was “Bear.”
    There is no direct evidence that Gates or anyone within the Trump campaign acted on the Israeli company’s proposals.

    Jared Kushner has boasted about his role in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign:
    We basically had to build a $400 million operation with 1,500 people operating in 50 states, in five months.
    We brought in Cambridge Analytica.
    Cambridge Analytica reportedly received $5.9 million from the Trump campaign between July 29 and December 12, 2016.

    It remains unclear whether Psy-Group owner Joel Zamel’s proposal was ever executed, but after the election, Nader paid Zamel up to $2 million for reasons unknown.

    On 14 December 2016 (after the election), Cambridge Analytica and Psy-Group signed a mutual non-disclosure agreement. It has not been disclosed what they worked on together.
    A lawyer for Joel Zamel stated that his client: “had nothing to do with Cambridge Analytica”: https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018...-to-trumpworld


    Black Cube’s founder and former honorary board president was the late Mossad chief Meir Dagan.
    Black Cube — which calls itself a “private intelligence agency” and employs former members of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence units — has denied any links to Cambridge Analytica.
    Black Cube has been named as working for Harvey Weinstein to discredit all the women that accused him of sexual abuse.

    Cambridge Analytica’s former research director Christopher Wylie has claimed that Black Cube worked with them in Nigeria.
    But he has later retracted these allegations.

    Iranian-born British citizen Vincent Tchenguiz was the largest shareholder in the parent company of Cambridge Analytica, SCL Group, from 2005 to 2015.
    In 2014 and 2015, SCL Group held meetings with Lukoil, Russia’s second-largest oil company.

    In 2010, Tchenguiz met Dan Zorella, at the time an employee of a business intelligence firm called Businessscope. Businessscope was founded in May 2010; Tchenguiz held a 17% stake in Businessscope.

    Tchenguiz also played a prominent role in founding the controversial Israeli business intelligence company Black Cube in 2011 with Zorella, including funding. Tchenguiz also made his London office available for the nominal monthly rent of one British pound.
    From December 2011 until December 2012, Black Cube reported weekly to Tchenguiz.

    Avner Barnea described Black Cube’s activities as illegal; it “seeks out information that is not open source in a manner that is illegal. They impersonate people they are not, create fake websites, and use other dubious means”: https://www.timesofisrael.com/cambri...awsuit-claims/
    (archived here: http://archive.is/fHVST)


    In March 2011, Tchenguiz’s British home and office were raided on suspicions that he had caused the collapse of Iceland’s Kaupthing Bank in 2008: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...inancial-fraud


    SCL Group, Cambridge Analytica and Psy-Group have been liquidated after all the adverse publicity and will simply continue their activities under a different name…

    Gatestone Institute

    Another interesting company in the web of disinformation companies - that includes SCL Group, Cambridge Analytica - is the Gatestone Institute.
    Financial backer of Breitbart, Cambridge Analytica and Trump donor Rebekah Mercer funds Gatestone Media via her family foundation. Earlier this year, Rebekah Mercer was listed as a member of the Gatestone Institute “board of governors” but her name has since been removed from the site.

    Gatestone is primarily financed by member of the Council on Foreign Relations Nina Rosenwald. In 2003, Rosenwald was awarded the Louis Brandeis Award, given by the Zionist Organization of America for her pro-Israel advocacy.
    Funding for Gatestone also comes from the Middle East Forum (MEF) that is also financed by Rosenwald.
    Gatestone Media also provides content for Rebel Media, which is financed by Robert Mercer.
    Before John Bolton became National Security Advisor to President Donald he was chairman of Gatestone.

    The Gatestone Institute lists Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz as a “distinguished senior fellow” who contributes to the site. Dershowitz was once introduced by Trump’s good friend Lynn Forester (these days “Lady” de Rothschild) to another buddy of Trump, Jeffrey Epstein. Virginia Roberts, who was sexually abused by the paedophile gang for which Epstein arranged the underage girls, claims that she was sexually abused by the highly “respected” Dershowitz.
    Trump’s Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta arranged the sweet deal that got Epstein off the hook (and the whole paedophile gang!) for which Epstein spent something like 55 days in prison.

    Rosenwald’s foundation also finances Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney, and David Horowitz.
    Gatestone has heavily promoted Marine le Pen (France), Geert Wilders (Netherlands) and Matteo Salvini (Italy).
    It was recently exposed that the “far right” German AFD party in Germany was being promoted via Gatestone.

    Since his planned departure from the White House in August of 2017, former Breitbart editor Steve Bannon has met crooked European politicians like Marine Le Pen, Alice Weidel of AFD, Hungary's Viktor Orban and Britain’s Nigel Farage.
    After the success of Brexit, this summer Steve Bannon met Boris Johnson several times.
    In December 2016, on the advice of the Foreign office Johnson had met Alexander Nix of SCL, Cambridge Analytica. He failed to disclose this meeting, “forgetting” to record it: https://neilsandersmindcontrol.com/i...ica-part-three

    There is obviously a network of so-called “extreme right” politicians that – with the help of the mainstream and alternative media –insinuate that they are a threat to the New World Order. In reality they are supported by the elite (through the network in which the SCL Group, Cambridge Analytica plays an important part).
    These politicians – including Geert Wilders, Viktor Orban, Nigel Farrage, Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro – look like cheap imitations of the Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn. The most important difference between these cheap imitations is that Fortuyn was a real threat to the Order of the Garter; he was assassinated for it: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...rotect-Muslims


    According to the NBC, Gatestone Institute has promoted misleading, false anti-Muslim news that was amplified by a Russian troll factory. At the time Gatestone was headed by Fox News contributor John R. Bolton. CNN reported that the John Bolton Super Pac had a 2014 contract with Cambridge Analytica to provide micro targeting.
    In at least 4 instances known Russian trolls directly re-tweeted Gatestone stories. Gatestone’s “scholars” have appeared in the Russian state media — including Sputnik and RT (Russia Today).

    In November 2016, Gatestone reported that the European Union ordered the media not to report when terrorism suspects were Muslim. This was based on some group, that has nothing to do with the EU, which called for such a measure.

    In May 2017, the internet was buzzing with the story that “Germany confiscates homes to give to migrants” based on a story from Gatestone. This was based on a single rented apartment in Hamburg that had gone into temporary trusteeship.
    Nina Rosenwald emailed links to support Gatestone’s claims. One of these stories, according to Rosenwald, documented “warring Muslim gangs” in Marseille, France, but it only says that the city had deployed specialised police officers to a high-crime area (with no mention of warring Muslims).

    Gatestone has also claimed that 500 churches in London were closed compared to 423 new mosques opening, which picked up by numerous websites including Breitbart News.
    In reality, from 2005 to 2012 London saw 700 new churches and the total number of churches increased between 2008 and 2013.

    John Bolton has a long association with Pamela Geller, a long-time supporter of Israel’s favourite Dutch politicians, Geert Wilders. Wilders, who since the M17 was supposedly shot down by Russia in July 2014 claims to be anti-Putin, is a Gatestone author, and was on an RT broadcast in March 2018, saying Europe lacks strong political leaders like Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.

    Member of the Council on Foreign Relations Nina Rosenwald is vice president of the William Rosenwald Family Fund, which funds Zionist groups, including the Middle East Forum.
    Cofounders of Cambridge Analytica, Robert and Rebekah Mercer, donated $50,000 to Gatestone in 2014 and $100,000 in both 2015 and 2016: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/whi...k-tank-n868171

    Jared Kushner, Shanda

    How the scion of one tri-state crime family married into another, in a story equal parts ‘Sopranos’ and ‘Game of Thrones.’

    By James Kirchick
    ...
    Determined to prevent Billy from testifying, Charles set up a honey trap for his brother-in-law in a motel room—fully equipped with video cameras—and paid a prostitute $10,000. Kushner then sent a tape of the assignation to his sister, who promptly turned her brother’s attempt at blackmail over to the authorities.

    Kushner was also implicated in the simultaneous downfall of his political protégé McGreevy, who became infamous for a live televised resignation during which he announced to the world that he was “a gay American.” Thanks to this cynical deflection, most today remember McGreevy as having done nothing worse than commit marital infidelity under the duress of his decision to marry a woman and live his life in the closet. But the main reason McGreevy was forced to step down from his post was that his former lover, an Israeli man named Golan Cipel whom he had put on the state payroll in a make-work job, was threatening to sue him for sexual harassment.
    So, who was Golan Cipel? McGreevy had met Cipel several years earlier in Israel, and it was Charles Kushner who sponsored the young Israeli’s work visa to the United States and then generously employed Cipel in one of his companies before the governor hired him. Some speculated that Kushner, recognizing the blackmail potential of this arrangement, persuaded Cipel to threaten McGreevy with exposure. That would explain why, 10 minutes before McGreevy’s tearful confession, a lawyer representing Cipel called McGreevy’s office conveying the message that the jilted lover would keep their affair secret if the governor fulfilled an odd request: grant a charter to Touro College allowing it to open a medical school in New Jersey—a medical school for which Charles Kushner had raised money and hoped to name after his late mother. (At the time, Kushner, through his lawyer, denied any involvement.)

    Gatestone - Ingeborg and Ira Rennert

    Another interesting name on the Gatestone Institute Board of Governors is Ingeborg Rennert.
    See Ingeborg Rennert with Nina Rosenwald who received an award at the Israel’s Open University Foundation benefit.


    Israel’s Open University Foundation benefit was hosted by Foundation President Ingeborg Rennert and Robert de Rothschild. The event raised $620,000. Lawyer and paedophile Alan Dershowitz spoke at the gathering.
    The Rennerts are also tied to the Zionist, anti-Muslim writer Frank Gaffney.

    In 1997, the first ever recipient of the “The Guardian of Zion Award” (awarded by the Rennerts) was the late Elie Wiesel. Wiesel and his wife were close to the Rennerts for years. Wiesel was an adviser to the Gatestone Institute.
    In 2016, Donald Trump’s good friend and President of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder received the award.

    In 2017, John Bolton (before he became Trump’s NSA) was awarded “The Guardian of Zion Award” by Rennert.


    Ingeborg’s husband, Ira Rennert, is a “Jewish” billionaire, who made his billions the corrupt and dirty way (is there any other way?).
    Ira Rennert was a board member of Integrated Resources that became infamous for junk bond swindler Michael Milken, who raised $2 billion through junk bonds. Integrated Resources collapsed amid scandal and defaulted on $1 billion of bond debt in May 1989, but Ira Rennert remained free of charges.

    Ira Rennert continued the junk bond swindle to finance acquisitions for the Renco Group. Rennert acquired the shares of struggling companies and financed the acquisition by issuing junk bonds.
    Rennert paid substantial dividends out of Renco to himself.

    In 1989, Renco acquired the largest magnesium producer in the US - Magnesium Corp. in Utah. Magnesium Corp refines magnesium from the water of the Great Salt Lake using chemicals.
    In 1996, Renco established Renco Metals, Inc. as a holding company for Magnesium Corp and issued $150 million in bonds.
    Just like WCI Steel, which was controlled by Ira Rennert, the company paid Renco $90 million in dividends by the year end.

    Toxic heavy metals from Magnesium Corp - like arsenic, cadmium and lead - rained down as fine dust on the Herculaneum community in Missouri.
    In 2001, the Department of Justice filed charges against Magnesium Corp for violating the hazardous waste law, and noted that Rennert’s removal of money from Magnesium Corp, was “leaving the companies insolvent and unable to pay their bills”.
    The court case went on until 17 August 2010, when the Court of Appeals ruled that the Magnesium facility in Rowley, Utah was illegally disposing waste.


    In 1997, the corrupt Peruvian government sold their government owned smelter in La Oroya to the Rennert controlled Doe Run.
    Two million pounds of contamination were spewing out of those chimneys every single day. The contamination (including lead) became trapped between narrow canyon walls creating a huge gas chamber, and fell like rain on every inch of the city. That resulted in over 99% of the city’s 12,000 children having lead levels high above US standards. The people face the risk of cancer at 2,000 times the normal rate.
    After 10 years, the Blacksmith Institute published that La Oroya was among the top 10 of most polluted places. Rennert responded by splitting the La Oroya operation off from Doe Run: https://talpiottalk.com/2018/04/20/t...eborg-rennert/

    Murder of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia

    Daphne Caruana Galizia repeatedly exposed the passports for money scheme by Henley and Partners that was chaired by the Swiss lawyer Christian Kalin and Kalin’s shady connections to Keith Schembri and PM Joseph Muscat.

    Daphne Caruana Galizia was repeatedly harassed with defamation law suits to remove this information from her blogspot.
    When I first tried to look for more information on this interesting link: Google.nl refused to handle my search request (with an error message noting that “suspicious” activity was observed on my computer). Duckduckgo.com had some difficulty finding the most interesting stories…

    Galizia was sued for defamation in London by the notorious law firm Mishcon de Reya for Henley and Partners. She had evidence that Christian Kalin had discussed this ploy with PM of Malta Joseph Muscat and his chief of staff Keith Schembri (see the mails): https://daphnecaruanagalizia.com/201...-joseph-order/
    (archived here: https://web.archive.org/web/20180508145028/https://daphnecaruanagalizia.com/2017/05/prime-minister-chief-staff-use-josephmuscat-com-addresses-deal-secretly-henley-partners-chairman-addresses-keith-joseph-order/)


    Nine days after Galizia was murdered, Joseph Muscat was at a conference in Dubai, organised by Henley and Partners.



    British Labour MP Ben Bradshaw has exposed that Daphne Caruana Galizia was investigating the links between Cambridge Analytica and Henley and Partners.
    Other links are through the Legatum Institute.
    This could have been THE motive for silencing her forever.

    Legatum’s founder Christopher Chandler and Mark Stoleson, CEO of the Legatum Group, opened accounts at Pilatus Bank for buying a Maltese passport.
    About 10 years ago chairman of Henley and Partners, Christian Kalin, struck up a relationship with former CEO of Cambridge Analytica, Alexander Nix. Nix and Kalin collaborated in a number of electoral campaigns in the Caribbean.
    At St Vincent and the Grenadines, Kalin supported leader of the opposition Arnhim Eustace. Kalin listed various investments that Eustace could count on if he won the election (in exchange for the right to sell passports): http://theshiftnews.com/2018/03/28/b...dge-analytica/


    Sven Hughes has told about his experiences while working for SCL.
    In the Eastern Caribbean, SCL was manipulating the elections in at least 6 countries. One objective appears to get governments set up that would allow the lucrative trade in passports (by Henley and other similar companies).
    Passports from a “respectable” country are a valuable possession for the elite, money laundering criminals. It’s estimated that the elite spend over $2 billion on “citizenship by investment” (CIU).
    In at least 5 Caribbean nations, SCL’s campaigns were backed by Christian H. Kalin, CEO of Henley.

    Well before the 2010 campaign in Saint Kitts, Henley and Partners worked with Denzil Douglas to sell passports for the bargain price of $150,000. Starting in 2009, such citizenships allow visa-free travel to over 100 countries, including the UK, the European Schengen zone. By 2014, passports had become Saint Kitts’s biggest export, with the revenue estimated at 25% of GDP.
    Neighbouring islands and over 30 countries around the world have started similar “citizenship by investment” programs. In Dominica, a similar passport can now be bought for $100,000.
    The US has a related investment scheme, the EB-5visa, which Jared Kushner was using to attract $500,000 investments from China.

    Convicted felons Paul Bilzerian and Roger Ver now use Saint Kitts passports.
    Many of the passport buyers are from “unpopular” countries, like Iran, China, Russia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
    In 2014, the US Treasury noted that “Iranian nationals” are trying to evade sanctions by using Saint Kitts’s passports.

    Shortly before the 2010 election in Saint Kitts, Nix was introduced to Kalin. Nix would become Cambridge Analytica’s founding CEO in 2012.
    Prime minister of Saint Kitts, Timothy Harris, encountered SCL’s work in 2015, when he was running for office against Denzil Douglas on a pledge to reform the country’s passport program. Henley and Partners was dismissed as Saint Kitts’ main passport seller. In 2014, Henley also lost its position as the primary Dominica’s passports seller.

    Henley’s place as the primary seller of Dominica and Saint Kitts passports was taken by another London-based firm CS Global Partners. The head of Dominica’s CIU program announced that there had been between 1,500 and 2,000 investor passport applications in the country of 50,000 people - 1,200 in only 5 months.
    CS Global was founded and led by a former attorney at Henley and Partners. Reportedly it was financed by the British-Indian Dev Bath, who also hired long-time DC lobbyist and former special counsel to President Bill Clinton Lanny J. Davis, to promote Saint Kitts and Dominica passports.
    Long-time associate of Bath, Peter Singh Virdee, was arrested in January 2017 at Heathrow Airport on charges of evading millions of dollars in carbon credit taxes.

    SCL launched a “targeted digital attack” against Saint Vincent Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, which resulted in “Within three weeks every single reference to him on the first two pages of Google (…) referred to the candidate’s horrific track record of corruption, coercion, rape allegations, and victimization”.
    SCL charged $4 million for its work in Saint Vincent that year.

    At the time of her murder, Daphne Caruana Galizia was facing dozens of defamation lawsuits, including from Henley and the cofounder of Malta’s Pilatus Bank, Ali Sadr Hasheminejad (son of one of Iran’s richest men).
    Hasheminejad has been linked to money laundering with officials in Malta’s prime minister’s inner circle. In 2009, Hasheminejad bought a Saint Kitts passport from Henley. In March, he was arrested by federal agents at an airport in Washington on charges of evading US sanctions against Iran; he had 4 passports with him: https://www.fastcompany.com/40571052...ssport-bonanza
    (archived here: http://archive.is/ACPFi)


    Stranger still?
    Mishcon de Reya was suing Daphne Caruana Galizia to stop her from exposing the links from Henley and Partners to the SCL Group (Cambridge Analytica).
    Mishcon de Reya was once the law firm that represented Princess Diana.

    The SCL Group was involved in orchestrating Brexit.
    After the success of Brexit, none other than Mishcon de Reya started a media campaign that it would be “unlawful” for the PM to trigger art. 50 of the Lisbon Treaty without the approval of Parliament.
    This made Brexiteers so furious that they were protesting against Mishcon de Reya (the SCL Group must have thought that this was hilarious!): https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-36700350

    Every week British stories are published to make Brits “fight” for their right to leave the EU. Often these stories focus on George Soros or Theresa May sabotaging Brexit by arranging a new referendum or the art. 50 procedure won’t be finished in time…
    I posted that the elite controlled SCL Group staged both the campaign for Brexit and president Trump, with my conclusion that “they” wanted these events to happen.

    At that time I searched in vain for a good motive for why the Order of the Garter wanted Britain out of the European Union. Recently I stumbled per chance on a story that shows that Brexiteers are really “fighting” for the right of the elite to evade taxes and launder money.
    Leaving the EU, withdraws Britain from “new” tax avoidance laws that would make the semi-legal offshore bank accounts of people like Jacob Rees-Mogg, David Cameron, Boris Johnson and… Queen Elizabeth problematic.


    The following recent Daily Mail piece actually warns that the EU wants to shackle Great Britain to EU tax policies after Brexit. Couldn’t they be more blatant?
    The draft documents, written by the TAX3 committee, state:
    The intention is that they commit to continue to alignment with EU standards, including for their overseas countries and territories.

    So the EU wants to stop tax evasion and money laundering through offshore “overseas” bank accounts? I really don’t believe they are!

    The Daily Mail continued their money laundering supporting propaganda with the following quote from Leave.EU:
    Spineless May will inevitably cave in & sell us down the river again.
    Sack her and get someone who will say NO!
    They also warn us that the EU doesn’t want Britain to lower taxes: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6298453/EU-wants-control-Britains-tax-policies-Brexit-stop-UK-low-tax-economy.html


    The best way to attract business for the money laundering British banks is to introduce EU laws against money laundering and tax evasion when Britain leaves…

    While everyday working people have no choice but to pay taxes in their own country, the global elite avoid paying their share by setting up shell companies in exotic tax havens.
    Individuals from 200 countries used more than 214,000 offshore entities to help them launder money and evade taxes worth billions in tax. Those implicated included 140 politicians and officials; including the president of Ukraine, the prime ministers of Iceland and Pakistan, and the King of Saudi Arabia.

    In October 2017, in the wake of the Panama Papers, the European Parliament’s Committee of Inquiry into Tax Avoidance and Tax Evasion was set up, which recommended for stricter sanctions against banks and intermediaries involved in illegal tax or money laundering schemes.

    By leaving the EU, Britain won’t have to face the new EU rules.
    This is very relevant, as the UK already had the largest number of offshore entities of any EU nation in the Panama Papers, with 17,973. Only Luxembourg came close with 10,877.

    President Donald Trump is slashing taxes and creating even more tax loopholes for the elite: https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/brexit-tax-evasion-eu-us-laws-uk-donald-trump-theresa-may-avoidance-a8007426.html


    Some of the loudest Brexit supporters have offshore interests.
    Lord George Magan was awarded a life peerage in 2011 by Queen Elizabeth.
    Sir David and Sir Frederick Barclay live on Brecqhou in the Channel Islands, and Monaco.
    Robert Edmiston gave hundreds of thousands of pounds to 2 Brexit groups
    MP Jacob Rees-Mogg received $680,000 through an investment firm based in the British Virgin Islands.
    Some of Andrea Leadsom’s family income comes from offshore interests.
    Brexiteer James Mellon is a proprietor of a “hip” cocktail bar in London: https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/09/brexiters-put-money-offshore-tax-haven


    Arron Banks donated £8.5 million to Nigel Farage and his campaign to leave Europe and continues to argue for a hard Brexit. He co-owns the Isle of Man-based Conister Bank with his friend and fellow Brexiteer, the Isle of Man resident Jim Mellon.

    In 2015, Arron Banks’ insurance business Southern Rock was bailed out, just months before Banks began bankrolling the Leave.EU referendum campaign to which he donated £8.4 million.
    One of the 2 campaign vehicles that received Banks’ £8.4 millions, Better for the Country Ltd, was set up by STM.

    If Southern Rock Insurance had gone bankrupt this could have made Banks’ UK insurance broker Eldon collapse.
    ICS Risk Solutions, a holding company on the Isle of Man, pumped £77.7 million into Southern Rock to save it from collapse. Banks owned both ICS and Southern Rock; it is not clear where the money came from.

    A core business for STM is setting up offshore trusts, to make it difficult to trace who ultimately owns the assets.
    STM services helped to invest pension savings in the Trafalgar Multi Asset Fund, which collapsed in 2016 and is under investigation of the UK’s Serious Fraud Office. STM should have seen red flags before the pension debacle.

    On 19 October 2017, Alan Kentish was arrested in Gibraltar for failing to notify the authorities on money-laundering by one of STM’s clients. Following his arrest, Kentish resigned his directorships of 2 companies linked to Arron Banks.
    STM was managing operations for Henley & Partners, whose business includes helping rich foreign nationals acquire citizenship of tax havens; and whose chairman reportedly has ties to Cambridge Analytica.

    Junior STM staff reported on internal suspicious activity for 19 individuals or entities. Only 3 of these were acknowledged by STM’s compliance officer and none was passed to the island’s financial crimes unit: https://www.opendemocracy.net/uk/brexitinc/marcus-leroux-leigh-baldwin/brexit-s-offshore-secrets-0

    According to our wonderful media we have to believe that there are legitimate reasons for the elite to hide their wealth through offshore funds.
    Queen Elizabeth by law is exempt from taxes. According to our dumb, deaf and blind media we have to believe that Elizabeth voluntarily pays taxes. If that is the case than why doesn’t Elizabeth have the law changed, so that she is obligated to pay taxes (as this wouldn’t really make a difference)?

    The Duchy of Lancaster is a private estate that was set up in 1399 to manage land and investments for the reigning monarch. In March 2017, the Duchy was worth £519 million.
    The Duchy of Lancaster has invested £10 million ($13.1 million) from Elizabeth’s private estate into offshore funds in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda. This had never before been disclosed. If Elizabeth pays taxes, like she claims, I would like to see evidence that she paid taxes over the income generated from her investments through this Cayman Islands fund.

    In September 2005, the Duchy of Lancaster invested $7.5 million (£5.7 million) in Dover Street VI Cayman Fund LP.


    The US company running the fund later asked the duchy to contribute $450,000 (£344,000) – 6% of its commitment - into UK retailer BrightHouse and Threshers. The Duchy of Lancaster refused to disclose the size of its original 2007 investment in BrightHouse, which coincided with a boom in its value. The Duchy claims the BrightHouse holding now equates to £3,208.
    In September 2007, when BrightHouse began the Duchy contributed $450,000 to five investments (including "Project Bertie"). This included an interest in London-based private equity firm Vision Capital that acquired 100% of BrightHouse and 75% of the Threshers off licence chain.


    BrightHouse has since been accused of overcharging customers, and using hard sell tactics on people with mental health problems and learning disabilities.
    In 2015, a UK parliamentary report concluded that BrightHouse was charging interest rates of up to 94%. One in 5 customers was in arrears and one in 10 purchases ended in repossession. In one case, a Samsung freezer cost £644 to buy but £1,716 under a five-year plan from the chain.
    In October 2017, BrightHouse was ordered to pay £14.8 million in compensation to 249,000 customers for not handling in their best interest.

    BrightHouse has limited its tax bill through a large loan to a Luxembourg holding company. Between 2007 and 2014, it reported £1.6 billion in revenue and made an operating profit of £191 million, but paid less than £6 million in taxes.
    The Paradise Papers show only one payout from the fund to the Duchy of Lancaster in June 2008 of $361,367 over which it paid only $1,505 (0.4%) in tax.

    Threshers' balance sheet was loaded with debt and it paid no corporation tax for 2 years. When the drinks retailed went bust in October 2009, almost 6,000 people lost their jobs and it owed £17.5 million in UK tax (how much did Queen Liz take?).

    The Duchy of Lancaster also invested £5 million in the Jubilee Absolute Return Fund, which invests in hedge funds. At the time of the investment in June 2004, the fund was based in Bermuda. In 2006, it moved to Guernsey.
    This investment ended in 2010.

    According to our media, we cannot hold it against Queen Elizabeth that her huge fortune is invested in such a dubious way: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-41878305
