Thread: Perlmutter, Moskowitz and Sherman – control Veterans Affairs

    Perlmutter, Moskowitz and Sherman – control Veterans Affairs

    An informal troika - Ike Perlmutter, Bruce Moskowitz and Marc Sherman – control Veterans Affairs (VA) from Mar-a-Lago (President Trump’s club in Palm Beach, Florida).

    The Mar-a-Lago troika is led by Ike Perlmutter, chairman of Marvel Entertainment; a longtime acquaintance of Donald Trump and close to Donald’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
    Trump and Perlmutter regularly talk on the phone and dine together at the Mar-a-Lago.

    On 28 December 2016, president-elect Donald Trump asks Perlmutter at Mar-a-Lago for help putting a government together, according to people familiar with the matter. Then Perlmutter enlisted the assistance of his friends Sherman and Moskowitz.
    Bruce Moskowitz specialises in knowing the world’s top medical experts and arranging appointments for wealthy clients.
    Marc Sherman is yet another a lawyer, who specialises in financial fraud, white collar investigations and damages disputes.

    The troika speaks with VA officials daily to review policy and personnel decisions. In email after email, VA officials ask approval from the trio.
    A former administration official said: “Everyone has to go down and kiss the ring

    Everything needs to be run by them.
    They view themselves as making the decisions.

    Another former official commented: “On any veterans issue, the first person the president calls is Ike”.

    The Mar-a-Lago troika has made a nice profit from their control over VA.
    Starting in February 2017, Perlmutter negotiated with executives at Johnson & Johnson, on a public awareness campaign about veteran suicide.
    They planned a promotional event at the New York Stock Exchange around the time of Veterans Day. Executives from Perlmutter’s company Marvel and its parent company, Disney, joined Johnson & Johnson as sponsors of the Veterans Day event.

    Bruce Moskowitz wanted Apple and the VA to develop an app for veterans to find medical services, for which he selected his son, Aaron, who had built a similar app. The VA finally killed the project after months of pushing by Moskowitz.
    Moskowitz set up the Biomedical Research and Education Foundation to encourage keeping track of devices for their patients. The foundation built a registry to collect data from doctors and patients. Moskowitz chaired the board, Perlmutter’s wife was also a member and Moskowitz’s son earned $60,000 a year as the executive director...

    In September 2017, the Mar-a-Lago troika pushed to expand the use of the private sector.
    Perlmutter wrote in an email to Shulkin and other officials:
    We think that some of the VA hospitals are delivering some specialty healthcare when they shouldn’t and when referrals to private facilities or other VA centers would be a better option.
    Our solution is to make use of academic medical centers and medical trade groups, both of whom have offered to send review teams to the VA hospitals to help this effort.
    This looks like a proposal, so they can outsource VA health care to private providers like themselves (and their crooked gang).

    Former administration officials say that VA leaders were pushed out or passed over by the Mar-a-Lago troika if they didn’t cooporate; including: the secretary, deputy secretary, chief of staff (acting under secretary for health), deputy under secretary for health, chief information officer, and the director of electronic health records modernization.
    After making a good impression on the Mar-a-Lago troika, Peter O’Rourke became chief of staff for the Department of Veterans Affairs. In February 2018, Moskowitz emailed him on a new mental health initiative; O’Rourke replied: “Received, I will begin a project plan and develop a timeline for action”.
    In May 2018, O’Rourke became acting secretary.

    The Mar-a-Lago troika grew frustrated with David Shulkin, because he wasn’t listening to them.
    According to 2 former officials, senior adviser Camilo Sandoval, who knew Perlmutter from his work on the campaign with Jared Kushner, presented himself as Perlmutter’s eyes and ears within the agency.
    One email shows that Sandoval kept tabs on the Apple project and reported back to Moskowitz and Sherman:
    I will update the tracker, and please do let me know if this helps answers questions around Apple’s efforts or if additional clarification is required.

    (archived here: http://archive.is/1VJai)


    On 4 December 2017, White House adviser Jake Leinenkugel sent Sandoval a plan to change VA’s leadership.
    Not only Shulkin — but all the officials the Leinenkugel memo singled out were removed and replaced with cronies of Perlmutter, Sherman and Moskowitz.
    Like the memo suggested:
    In April 2018, Sandoval became head of the Office of Information and Technology, overseeing the implementation of the Cerner contract;
    In June 2018, Deputy Secretary Tom Bowman had to leave;
    In July 2018, Richard Stone was made under secretary for health.

    Leinenkugel himself took charge of a commission on mental health (on which Moskowitz had emailed O’Rourke): https://www.documentcloud.org/docume...oval-Memo.html

    Moskowitz and Jeffrey Epstein

    In April 2012, Jeffrey Epstein formed Gratitude America Ltd. in the Virgin Islands “to support the expression of gratitude for the ideals of America”.
    Epstein was president of Gratitude America, Ltd. until 2015, when Richard D. Kahn took that role.

    Since Darren K. Indyke is vice president of Gratitude America, before that he was treasurer. Indyke is a longtime lawyer for Epstein; active in all 3 of Epstein’s former foundations, Epstein Interests, C.O.U.Q. Foundation (a.k.a. Florida Science Foundation) and J. Epstein Virgin Islands Foundation (a.k.a. Enhanced Education).
    Virgin Islands tax attorney Erika Kellerhals is Gratitude America's secretary and treasurer. She was also secretary, treasurer and trustee of the J. Epstein Virgin Islands Foundation.

    In 2015, Gratitude America, Ltd. recorded revenues for the first time, with a mysterious $10 million donation from a New York shell company - BV70 LLC.
    Epstein’s groups shuffle money to each other. In 2008, Epstein Interests donated $100,000 to the C.O.U.Q. Foundation. In 2009, Enhanced Education contributed $200,000 to C.O.U.Q.

    Gratitude America Ltd. has been used to funnel money to a variety of causes.
    In 2016, Gratitude America Ltd. funded a TV show with $110,000 through Verse Video Education hosted by the wife of Larry Summers, Elisa New, a Harvard economist and Treasury secretary under former President Clinton.
    Gratitude America’s biggest donations included $375,000 to the International Peace Institute Inc. A New York think tank staffed by former United Nations officials and run by the Norwegian Terje Rød-Larsen. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is honorary chairman.

    On July 23, 2018, Epstein, Indyke and Kahn each donated $2,700 to Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
    Kellerhals and partners at her law firm have been frequent donors to Plaskett.
    Epstein, Indyke and Kahn also donated to Plaskett in August 2016, each for a total of $5,400.
    In July 2014, both Kahn and Indyke donated $2,600 to Plaskett's campaign, while Kellerhals donated a total of $1,000 in July 2013 and January 2014.

    In June 2014, Indyke donated $5,200 to New Mexico gubernatorial candidate Gary King's campaign and Kahn’s business, HBRK Associates Inc., gave King $5,200.
    In the following weeks Epstein’s businesses – JEGE; FT RealEstate; Laurel; Nautilus; Maple; and Neptune LLC - donated more than $35,000 to King’s campaign.
    Gary King’s father, former Gov. Bruce King, sold Epstein his 10,000-acre Zorro Ranch in Stanley, New Mexico. Bruce King was listed in Epstein’s little black book.

    And now for the most interesting part...
    In 2016, Gratitude America, Ltd. donated $100,000 and $50,000 in 2017 to the Bruce and Marsha Moskowitz Foundation. While Gratitude America Ltd. registered a $100,000 donation in 2017, Moskowitz recorded a donation for only half of that ($50,000).
    Bruce Moskowitz is one of Trump's Mar-a-Lago cronies that secretly influences policies in the Department of Veterans Affairs. Bruce Moskowitz is also in in Epstein’s little black book: https://www.thedailybeast.com/jeffre...-gave-money-to

    In August 2018, following the ProPublica report, Veterans’ advocacy group VoteVets and Democracy Forward filed a complaint against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, to stop the influence of 3 friends of President Donald Trump on decisions at the agency.
    The lawsuit asks the court to block the Mar-A-Lago troika - Ike Perlmutter, Bruce Moskowitz and Marc Sherman - from weighing in on decisions, policies and personnel changes.

    A group of Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi and Tim Walz demanded that Robert Wilkie provide unredacted copies of all documents, records and correspondence between the troika and current or former VA employees.
    The VA has used the VoteVets and Democracy Forward lawsuit for an argument to not release documents.

    The Trump administration defends the legality of the 3 Trump cronies manipulating the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for personal gain, asserting that the Watergate-era law FACA on advisory committees doesn't apply.
    The administration argued that FACA doesn't apply to every formal or informal consultation.

    The government lawyers also argued that because the Mar-A-Lago troika doesn't fit the law's definition of an advisory committee because they aren’t under the agency's control:
    Far from alleging that the department managed or controlled the three individuals, the complaint asserts quite the opposite: that the three individuals asserted influence over the department.
    The VA case has been assigned to Trump appointee Judge Timothy J. Kelly: https://psmag.com/social-justice/law...rs-of-trump-va

    Here’s another interesting story that involves Johnson & Johnson and the Trump administration...

    Trump has enthusiastically endorsed Johnson & Johnson’s psychiatric drug Spravato, to prevent veterans from committing suicide. This was after the advice of the Mar-a-Lago troika - Marvel Entertainment chairman Ike Perlmutter, physician Bruce Moskowitz and lawyer Marc Sherman.
    In 2017, the Mar-a-Lago troika worked with Veterans Affairs (VA) and Johnson & Johnson for an advertising appearance at the New York Stock Exchange. Some think that these men have a stake in Johnson & Johnson.

    On 5 March 2019, the FDA approved Spravato for depression with a warning because of “the risk of serious adverse outcomes” and “the potential for abuse and misuse”.
    On 7 March 2019, VA Secretary Robert Wilkie talked with Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky.
    Later Wilkie’s adviser Deborah Scher sent an e-mail to Johnson & Johnson promising that the VA’s top health official, Richard Stone, would get Spravato into the VA system:
    He says this project is well underway. He has coordinated all of the appropriate leaders from pharmacy, mental health, etc.
    In one of the trials for Spravato, 6 people on the drug died, including 3 by suicide. There were no deaths in the placebo control group.
    According to psychiatrist Erick Turner, the FDA’s approval relied on one study site where the drug performed suspiciously well. The result barely met the threshold for being statistically significant, Turner commented:
    For any other drug they would have said, ‘Oh, this doesn’t meet our criteria and we’re not going to approve it,’ but they bent over backwards for this one.

    The US federal government has awarded $7.2 billion to fight the coronavirus “pandemic”.
    In one of those strange coincidences, Johnson & Johnson Inc.’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals unit signed a $456.2 million deal vaccines development and another $148.4 million for anti-viral therapies for Covid-19.
    In 2020, shares of Johnson & Johnson have risen 2.6%, compared to the S&P 500 Index’s dropping 15%

    It is sort of strange that after President Donald with his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”, the top corporate recipient is Royal Philips NV headquartered in my home town of Amsterdam, with $661.4 million.

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded more than $400 million to Moderna Inc. to develop its Covid-19 vaccine. In 2019, the Cambridge, Mass. based biotech firm’s revenue was only $60.2 million.
    Moderna Inc.’s shares rose with an impressive 152% this year.

    Of the $1.4 billion awarded by HHS for thousands of ventilators, which according to some do more harm than good in the treatment of COVID-19 cases:
    Hamilton Medical Inc. got $552 million;
    Vyaire Holding Co. got another $408 million;
    The US affiliate of the Japanese Asahi Kasei Corp. received $350 million: http://archive.is/6Lktq

    An "investigation" by House Democrats concluded that the Mar-a-Lago Trio illegally influenced the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
    Our joint investigation found that Ike Perlmutter, Marc Sherman, and Dr. Bruce Moskowitz, bolstered by their connection to President Trump's private Mar-a-Lago club, violated the law and sought to exert improper influence over government officials to further their own personal interests.
    .
    A consultant working for Moskowitz, Terry Fadem, in a June 2017 email explained that:
    Patient data is, in my opinion, the most valuable assets the VA has. It can be leveraged into hundreds of millions in revenue.
    .
    The "revenue" would come from selling the personal data to major companies. Moskowitz told then-VA Secretary David Shulkin that he had discussed the scheme with Johnson & Johnson, CVS and Apple.
    Fadem won't tell as he died in 2019.

    Reportedly Ivanka and Jared Kushner were completely informed on the corrupt dealings of the troika: https://www.propublica.org/article/t...edical-records

    It looks like the House Democrats "forgot" to look into some of the more interesting links...


    They "forgot" Johnson & Johnson...
    Here's an interesting video on Johnson & Johnson's intentions to turn the population into opiod addicts.
    Trump pressured the FDA to emergency approve the deadly J&J COVID vaccines.

    Donald's UK ambassador, in another one of those strange "coincidences", Woody Johnson is an heir to the Johnson & Johnson big pharma company.



    Then there's the well-connected paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who died in jail to silence him forever...

    (...)

    In 2016, Gratitude America, Ltd. donated $100,000 and $50,000 in 2017 to the Bruce and Marsha Moskowitz Foundation. While Gratitude America Ltd. registered a $100,000 donation in 2017, Moskowitz recorded a donation for only half of that ($50,000).
    A second little black book that (probably) belonged to Jeffrey Epstein has been discovered. The first dated from 2004/2005 and this one is from 1997.
    It contains 349 names, including more than 200 names that weren't in Epstein's 2004/2005 book. It looks very similar to the earlier released (later) Epstein little black book...

    New entries include Melania's close friend, Suzanne Ircha, who became Suzanne Johnson after marrying Woody Johnson. President Donald selected Woody Johnson for UK ambassador.
    See Suzanne Johnson and Ghislaine Maxwell, 11 October 2012, New York.
