    The Sionshyll obviously thinks it a good idea that the big corporations can pollute without being fined...

    Mining colossus Freeport McMoRan, is controlled by Carl Icahn.

    These days the Grasberg mine is the largest gold mine and the second largest copper mine in the world, with a controversial reputation.
    Freeport-McMoRan owned 90.64% of PT Freeport Indonesia (PT-FI), the rest owned by Rothschild’s Rio Tinto (affiliated with the Rothschild family), which exploits the Ertsberg and Grasberg mines.

    Freeport and Rio Tinto have been heavily criticised over the environmental damages caused by the Grasberg mine.
    The mine pollutes the Aikwa riverside and Arafura Sea. Some 230 square kilometres (89 sq mi) will be covered by toxic sediments. Fish have nearly disappeared from the now-turbid waters of the Aikwa River which have become unsuitable for aquatic life.
    In 2004, Indonesian Environment Ministry's field found levels of sediments from 7,500 to 37,500 milligrams per litre, while the maximum permitted is 400 milligrams per litre.
    In 2005, it was reported that since 1997 Freeport has been violating Indonesian environmental laws.

    How did they “fix” a minor “technicality” like destroying the environment?
    Between 1998 and 2004, Freeport gave military and police officers nearly $20 million (one individual received up to $150,000). How much did politicians and lawyers get?
    In July 2011, copper miners went on strike in protest of their low wages of some $1.50 an hour: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grasberg_mine

    Another interesting polluter is Ira Rennert of the Gatestone Institute that's affiliated with the SCL Group that push the SSionist agenda through SSionist politicians worldwide...

    Quote Originally Posted by Firestarter View Post
    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/

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

    I don't support any form of tyranny, while you blatantly support the fascism of Bolsonaro, Guedes, Trump and his ilk. And you appear to think that corporate profits are more important than the well-being of the average Joe...
    Not really surprising!

    In his first week in office, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced plans to privatise 44 airports, slash taxes for the rich, cut pensions, and set the minimum wage lower than was planned by his predecessor.
    Critics say this will worsen inequality across Brazil, putting corporate profits above the well-being of middle- and lower-class families.

    Bolsonaro unveiled plans to raise the miniumum wage at a lower rate than what was recommended by Michel Temer's outgoing government - to about $260 per month, 8 dollars (3.1%) less than previously planned.

    Finance Minister Paulo Guedes announced plans to privatise state power company Eletrobas.
    Guedes also announed on Twitter that 12 airports and 4 seaports will be privatised, claiming Brazil is burdened by "hundreds of bureaucratic governing bodies" and that this will earn $1.85 billion in private investments.

    Guedes also expressed the need for “tax simplification and reduction” – which sounds like an euphemism for slashing taxes for the rich so that low and middle income families can pay more taxes: https://www.commondreams.org/news/20...rich-and-wages

    All I hear is more support for government control of the economy and private property from a commie.

    Bolsonaro may not be perfect, I have never said he was, I even said that it sounded like Brazil didn't have any good choices but Bolsonaro is the least bad and has some outright good things about him.

    I'm still waiting for you to tell me one non-communist good thing about any of his opponents. (Voting for nobody isn't a solution because somebody will take office anyway)

    Icahn – Brazilian iron

    Quote Originally Posted by Swordsmyth View Post

    Thanks to you ponting out that envrionmental protection is even worse than “communism”, I can bring another exclusive.
    Please don’t tell a soul and keep this all hushed up!


    Trump’s long-time friend and adviser, the billionaire Carl Icahn, will profit from ending those silly laws that prevent corporations polluting Brazil by the Bolsonaro government. How many people will die because of this?
    On 18 August 2017, Icahn resigned his presidential advisory post after some media claimed that he had profited from his position by pushing regulatory changes that benefited his business interests.


    In 2012 Carl Icahn bought a large stake in Ferrous Resources Ltd., which mines iron in Brazil.
    In 2015, Appleby’s Isle of Man offices assisted Icahn in his purchase of additional shares of Ferrous Resources to give him majority stake.

    Appleby set up a complex offshore structure for Icahn to evade taxes. It utilises holding companies in tax havens — Atlantic Iron in Luxembourg and Mediterranean Iron in Malta — to control Ferrous in Brazil.
    The structure of Ferrous Resources means it escapes disclosure requirements under an Obama-era law to prevent offshore tax evasion: http://archive.vn/VDFQV


    The rabbit hole runs even deeper...

    On 8 March 2018, President Trump signed an order to impose a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% tariff on aluminium imports in 15 days.
    Gullible fools might think that this will hurt the Brazilian business interests of Carl Icahn (iron is the most important ingredient of steel)...

    But then on 30 April, in a “surprising move”, President Donald gave Canada, Mexico, Australia, Argentina, South Korea, and Brazil exemption from the steel and aluminium tariffs.

    There are also quotas to reduce the imports of steel and aluminium to the US.
    But then in August, President Donald allowed relief from the quotas on aluminum from Argentina and on steel from South Korea, Argentina and Brazil: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKCN1LF02B
    archived here: http://archive.vn/zCmv8)


    I had earlier found out that the Freeport McMoRan, reportedly also controlled by Carl Icahn, is massively polluting New Guinea in Indonesia.

    Guedes - Soros

    I’m not even suprised to find links between George Soros - Clinton-supporter, who has lent hundreds of millions of dollars to Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner – and Jair Bolsonaro’s minister of Economy Paulo Roberto Nunes Guedes.


    Guedes is the cofounder of the BTG Pactual investment bank.
    In July 2017, BTG Pactual went in business with the Brazilian investment boutique that was founded in 2003 by Arminio Fraga.
    Fraga had previously been president of Brazil’s central bank and a manager in George Soros’s fund: https://citywireamericas.com/news/bt...tique/a1035423


    Resumidamente, an investor in BTG Pactual, handles Brazilian investments for George Soros.
    Guedes’ Instituto Millenium, a Brazilian right wing legal think tank, also was aided by the Open Society Foundation of George Soros (in Portuguese, which I don’t speak well): http://novaresistencia.org/2018/09/2...-george-soros/

    Bolsonaro – UKCG

    Quote Originally Posted by Firestarter View Post

    There's just no end to the scandals surrounding Bolsonaro (just like Donald Trump...).


    Steve Bannon´s strategy couldn´t possibly have worked without the backing of a strong media presence in Brazil.
    It looks like the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UKCG) that was founded by Edir Macedo in 1977 was one of the most important supporters of Jair Bolsonaro´s presidential campaign.

    The media empire controlled by the UKCG has blatantly attacked anybody that criticised Jair Bolsonaro, while Bolsonaro (like Donald Trump) simply called any criticism “fake”...

    The Universal Church of the Kingdom of God receives more than $800 million in donations every year across Brazil. Between 2001 and 2008, the UKCG church earned $8 billion in donations from some 8 million followers in Brazil.
    Tax authorities charged the UKCG of using shell companies to launder the money. Macedo became a billionaire by taking a chunk of the donations with his co-conspirators for “private and commercial purposes”; $2 billion in donations from 2003 to 2008 alone.

    Brazil’s tax agency found that Macedo used interest-free loans from the UKCG Church to buy Rede Record in 1990, Brazil´s second largest media network, and fined him for failing to declare the loans as income.
    A federal judge ultimately rejected criminal charges that Rede Record was acquired through fraudulent means, arguing that it couldn´t be proved that frontmen were used to mask the real ownership.

    Bishop Edir Macedo and his wife, Ester Eunice Rangel Bezerra, own 2 luxury apartments in Miami, Florida.
    The Public Prosecutor’s Office discovered that the money was laundered through facade companies controlled by UKCG: https://theintercept.com/2018/10/20/...the-intercept/
    (archived here: http://archive.is/oikxc)


    Macedo also heads a bank.
    The Universal Church of God places a strong emphasis on money and employs “tithing”, a practice whereby members have to donate 10% of all income.

    The UCKG is banned in several countries.
    In 2005, the UCKG church was banned for a second time in Zambia for allegations including satanic worship, child sacrifice and drugs trafficking. Similar accusations were made against UKCG in South Africa.

    Marie Therese Kouao was found guilty of murdering the 8-year-old Victoria Climbie in February 2000 during an “exorcism” at a UCKG centre in London.
    The UCKG church was cleared of wrongdoing, but the Charity Commission recommended implementation of child protection policies.

    In December 2017, Portugal’s Attorney General’s Office opened an inquiry into the illegal adoption of babies by a centre run by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God.
    According to a Portuguese TV station at least 10 Portuguese children were stolen from their mothers in the 1990s from a UCKG centre in Lisbon and sold to couples abroad: https://culteducation.com/group/1211...n-belfast.html

    The latest (?) financial scandal plaguing Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro, who campaigned on the promise to eradicate corruption completely...
    Maybe the collapse of a mining dam near the southeast city of Brumadinho will keep the media attention away from the crooked gang surrounding Brazilian President Bolsonaro?

    In December, the Council for Financial Activities Control (COAF) identified 1.2 million reais ($305,000) that flowed through the bank account of Queiroz to the bank accounts of the president's eldest son, member of parliament Flavio Bolsonaro, and Bolsonaro’s wife, Michelle in 2016-17.
    The Bolsonaros and Queiroz have denied any wrongdoing, according to Jair Bolsonaro Queiroz repaid a personal loan to Michelle.

    COAF later identified cash transfers worth almost 100,000 reais ($26,665) in June and July 2017 into Flavio’s account.
    In a TV interview, Flavio Bolsonaro said this was for an apartment he sold, but he didn’t clarify for what other reason the deposit was made in cash than to hide the origin.

    Jair Bolsonaro has replied to the news with the comment that he “believes” in his son and that the accusations are “unfounded".
    Bolsonaro’s son had earlier denied wrongdoing, claiming that he is the victim of a “defamatory campaign”, after reports that he employed the mother and wife of a former cop that ran a criminal organisation: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-b...-idUSKCN1PQ4OI
