An NGO co-funded by George Soros was spared prosecution in 2016 after the US urged Ukraine to drop a corruption probe targeting the group, the Hill reported, pointing to potential shenanigans during the US presidential election.
Bankrolled by the Obama administration and Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros, the Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC) was under investigation as part of a larger probe by Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office into the misallocation of $4.4 million in US funds to fight corruption in the eastern European country.
As the 2016 presidential race heated up back in the United States, the US Embassy in Kiev gave Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko “a list of people whom we should not prosecute” as part of the probe, the Hill reported. Ultimately, no action was taken against AntAC.
Lutsenko told the paper that he believes the embassy wanted the probe nixed because it could have exposed the Democrats to a potential scandal during the 2016 election.
A State Department official who spoke with the Hill said that while the request to nix the probe was unusual, Washington feared that AntAC was being targeted as retribution for the group’s advocacy for anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine.
AntAC wasn’t just the benefactor of well-connected patrons – at the time it was also collaborating with FBI agents to uncover then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s business dealings in Ukraine. Manafort later became a high-profile target of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged Russian collusion, and was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison for tax fraud and other financial crimes.
Lutsenko divulged in an interview with the Hill last week that he has opened an investigation into whether Ukrainian officials leaked financial records during the 2016 US presidential campaign in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
While AntAC may have failed to help the FBI find the Russia collusion smoking gun, the group’s activities constitute yet another link between the anti-climactic Russiagate probe and Soros, a Democrat mega-donor who bet big on Hillary Clinton taking the White House in 2016.
In 2017, the billionaire philanthropist siphoned money into a new group, the Democracy Integrity Project, which later partnered with Fusion GPS to create the now-infamous Steele dossier.
Spokespersons for AntAC and the Soros umbrella group Open Society Foundations declined to comment on the Hill’s scoop.
Ironically, the prosecutor general who had preceded Lutsenko, Viktor Shokin, resigned under pressure from Washington – which accused Shokin of corruption.
Virtuous US officials continue to make similar demands of Ukraine’s justice system. Earlier this month, Washington urged the Ukrainian government to fire its special anti-corruption prosecutor, again over accusations of administrative abuse.
People just don’t get it. This world is to far gone and it’s not coming back it’s over. It will git worse as time go on. This shit is only surprising to people who thinks it can git better. But as everyday go’s by their hearts get’s broken over and over again. So save yourself some heartache and see reality.
Predominant doctor who exposed the non-existence of Clinton Foundation-promised medical care in Haiti found dead with knife in chest.
A well-known surgeon who exposed major inadequacies in medical trauma care promised to the Haitian people by the Clinton Foundation after the non-profit raised over $30 million dollars in donations following the devastating 2010 earthquake was found dead in his upscale apartment Sunday with a stab wound to the chest.
Dr. Dean Lorich, 54, was found lying dead on the bathroom floor of his apartment by his 11-year-old daughter with a knife sticking out of his chest.
The predominant surgeon gained notoriety after operating on U2’s frontman Bono and former running back Michael Cox but had also worked overseas in Haiti where he discovered an almost non-existent medical effort backed by the Clinton Foundation.
In fact, in January of 2010, Dr. Lorich sent a detailed email to a confidant which ended up getting forwarded to Cheryl Mills who was Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the time before being forwarded on again to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The doctor’s correspondence, provided by Wikileaks, was critical of how the situation in Haiti was being handled.
“Disaster management on the ground was nonexistent,” the doctor wrote. ” Cheerios on the tarmac are not getting it done on these patients which clearly would be savable if good care could urgently be provided.”
However, the email was only a precursor to the bombshell the doctor dropped publically just days later on Jan. 25, 2010, in a piece for CNN titled “Doctors: Haiti medical situation shameful” which detailed the conditions overseas and again the doctor took veiled shots at the Clinton Foundation.
“Once we arrived, we saw a severely damaged hospital with no running water and only limited electrical power, supplied by a generator. Surgeries were being performed in the equivalent of a large storage closet, where amputations were performed with hacksaws,” the doctor wrote. “This facility could not nearly accommodate our equipment nor our expertise to treat the volume of injuries we saw.”
That’s when the medical team decided to go with ‘Plan B’ which was to set up at the Community Hospital of Haiti located several miles away. However, what the team found when they arrived at the hospital was horrific at best.
Dr. Lorich wrote:
We found scores of patients with pus dripping out of open extremity fractures and crush injuries. Some wounds were already ridden with maggots.
About a third of these victims were children. The entire hospital smelled of infected, rotting limbs and death. Later on, we would judge our surgical progress by the diminishment of the stench.
In our naïveté, we didn’t expect that the two anesthesia machines would not work; that there would be only one cautery available in the entire hospital to stop bleeding; that an operating room sterilizer fit only instruments the size of a cigar box; that there would be no sterile saline, no functioning fluoroscopy machine, no blood for transfusions, no ability to do lab work; and the only local staff was a ragtag group of voluntary health providers who, like us, had made it there on their own.
As a caveat, the doctor added, “Upon our departure, we witnessed pallets of Cheerios and dry goods sitting on the tarmac helping nobody. Yet our flight of critical medical equipment and personnel had been canceled, and the equipment that did get through was hijacked.”
Did the doctor’s persistence wind up getting him added him to the Clinton body count? Who murdered the doctor?
7 of the 14 Saudis arrested for corruption worked with the Podesta group. If Tony is indicted Huma will be also. Huma has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood which is how Clinton’s campaign was funded by Saudi Arabia. Would be a shame if this got out showing she knew they were also funding ISIS.
The Justice Department’s probe into a corruption scandal revolving around an Asian defense contractor has expanded to include 60 admirals and hundreds of officers with the US Seventh Fleet, which is going through turmoil after deadly ship collisions.
The Navy confirmed it has been reviewing the conduct of 440 active duty and retired personnel for possible violations of military law or federal ethics rules in their dealing with Leonard Glenn Francis, a Singapore-based maritime tycoon known colloquially as “Fat Leonard.” Among those investigated are 60 current and former admirals, according to the Washington Post.
The Justice Department handed them the cases of certain individuals “who did not meet the threshold for prosecution in civilian courts, but may have committed offenses under the military justice system.”
That is double the number of admirals the Navy said were under investigation last year. There are about 210 admirals presently on active duty.
More than half of those under review, 230 people, are not considered guilty of misconduct, and some were found to have had little or no contact with Francis, the Navy said. The Navy said the names of those under review have been kept secret to avoid compromising the ongoing case.
“The release of such information…would likely reveal sensitive details about the breadth and scope of the criminal investigation and pending cases,” Commander Mike Kafka, a Navy spokesman, said in statement.
So far the Navy has charged five people with crimes under military law, none of them admirals.
Most of the flag officers are suspected of attending feasts at Asia’s best restaurants at the expense of Francis, who made a fortune supplying US Navy vessels in Pacific ports from Brisbane, Australia to Vladivostok, Russia. Francis was notorious for hosting boozy after-dinner parties, often with prostitutes, that sometimes lasted for days, according to federal court records.
Federal prosecutors say that in exchange, the officers provided Francis with classified or inside information that allowed his firm, Glenn Defense Marine Asia (GDMA), to extort nearly $35 million from the Navy. The leaked data includes ship movements and confidential contract information. In some cases, commanders steered ships to ports where GDMA could charge fake tariffs and fees, according to prosecutors cited by AP.
The cases have been described as the worst corruption in Navy history since WWII. The incidents go back as far as 1992 and most recently as 2004.
Francis’s overbilling of the Navy has been an open secret for years. In response to a flood of fraud complaints, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) opened more than two-dozen separate investigations into Glenn Defense in 2006, according to court records.
The Justice Department has filed criminal charges against 28 people, including two admirals, since Francis was arrested in an international sting operation in September 2013.
Among those charged is Rear Admiral Bruce Loveless, recently retired from the Pentagon, as well as four retired Navy captains, and a retired Marine colonel. They were arrested by the Justice Department across five states and faced charges including bribery, conspiracy to commit bribery, honest services fraud, and obstruction of justice and making false statements to federal investigators.
Francis, 53, pleaded guilty in 2015 to bribing dozens of Navy officials and defrauding the government of more than $35 million. He is in custody at a San Diego prison and is awaiting sentencing.
The latest revelations in the “Fat Leonard” scandal come as the Seventh Fleet is coping with the fallout from two deadly collisions at sea. Two guided missile destroyers, the USS John S. McCain and the USS Fitzgerald, collided with commercial vessels in the Pacific this summer. These two separate incidents killed 17 sailors.
The fleet’s commanding officer, Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin, was dismissed a month before he was due to retire. Admiral Scott Swift, commander of the US Pacific Fleet, stepped down in September after being informed he will not be promoted to head the US Pacific Command. He announced his retirement in a surprise Facebook post.
The Seventh Fleet operates about 70 ships, and has approximately 20,000 sailors and 140 aircraft.
There are some extremely salient facts that put the corruption concerning fluoridation in its proper perspective.
FACT: In the year 2000, on Hawaii Public Radio, Dr. Mark Greer made the statement that “the toxicology tests proved that fluoride was safe and effective”. There was one problem with this: there no independent toxicology reports ever done at this time. In a hearing at the Capitol in 2003, I made reference to this in my testimony. I also said that Dr. Greer missed his calling. He should have the President of the Liar’s Club. This was said in front of at least 300 potential witnesses in a defamation of character lawsuit that has never taken place. Dr. Greer’s sole purpose for lying was so he could be the guy to bring fluoride to Hawaii.
FACT: In 2006, the National Research Council did the first independent toxicology report. They found that anything over .8ppm was extremely detrimental to one’ health. The NRC also advised that fluoride should not be used in infant formulas due to its neurological damage danger. The NRC also concluded that kidney patients, diabetics, seniors, and outdoor workers were susceptible populations and especially vulnerable to harm from fluoride ingestion.
FACT: The CDC, in their Morbidity and Mortality report on “Recommendations for Using Fluoride to Prevent and Control Dental caries in the United States”, of August 17, 2001/Vol.50/No.RR-14, on page 4, fourth paragraph, it says: ‘The laboratory and epidemiological research that has led to the better understanding of how fluoride prevents dental caries indicates that fluoride’s effectiveness is post-eruptive (after the tooth comes into the mouth) and topical (on the surface of the tooth) and that the effects depends on fluoride being in the right amount in the right place at the right time”. Nowhere in the entire 42-page booklet does it say you have to drink it.
FACT: At Harvard University in late 2005 or early 2006, Elise Bassin, a Doctoral student in the Dental School, submitted her doctoral thesis to Dr. Chester Douglass, the head of the Dental School. In her thesis, Ms. Bassin found a correlation between fluoride and bone cancer in adolescent boys. When Dr. Douglass released her doctoral thesis to the public, he omitted the part about bone cancer. About a year or so later that omission was discovered and Harvard conducted an examination on Dr. Douglass. While the investigation was going on, Dr. Douglass donated $1 million to Harvard. He was exonerated. Dr. Douglass was also on the payroll of the Colgate/Palmolive Company.
FACT: Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, a noted and well-established neuro-toxicologist, produced research proving that fluoride is a neurotoxin that affects the central nervous system. When she published her work in 1995, not only was it dismissed, bit it also ended her career. Dr. Harold Hodge, one of Dr. Mullenix’s mentors, who served as the chief toxicologist for the Manhattan Project, a.k.a. the Atomic Energy Commission, was instrumental in promoting fluoride to the public. As Dr. Mullenix’s work progressed and she reported her finding to Hodge, he shrugged them off. It wasn’t until much later that Dr. Mullenix learned that Hodge had conducted his own research 50 years earlier, and had first discovered the connection between fluoride and its ill effects on the central nervous system.
FACT: Under the Pure Water Act, it is illegal to dump fluoride in the streams, lakes, rivers, or oceans. But, somehow if it goes through a water faucet and then through a person’s body, it’s okay?
FACT: The sugar lobby’s answer to cavity reduction is more fluoride rather than promoting less sugar in the diet.
FACT: Fluoride, rather than stopping tooth decay, causes teeth to rot and crumble, and by the same mechanism also causes osteoporosis.
FACT: Fluoride inhibits antibody formation in the blood, depresses thyroid function, promotes, development of bone cancer, causes premature aging of the body, and is the main ingredient in rat poison.
FACT: Federal health officials have known these facts for years, but have been controlled by the political interests of the nuclear arms, aluminum, steel, and phosphate manufactures to remain silent.
FACT: Before fluoride was touted as “an essential nutrient”, it was classified as a toxic, industrial waste product and had to be disposed of as such to the tune of $10 billion a year or more. Now, it’s merely dumped into water systems.
The two good news’s:
1 – This horrendous toxic poison and more can be removed from the body by organic sulfur crystals, which you can learn more about by going to www.healthtalkhawaii.com and clicking on Products.
2- As unbelievable as it may sound, if you fill something with the hottest water from your faucet and let it sit until it cools off, the vapor removes the fluoride and the chlorine. Then you put that container in your refrigerator and eventually drink refreshing, cool uncontaminated water.
Trump Floats Ban on Defense Firms Hiring Military Procurement Officials … US President-elect Donald Trump on Friday said he was considering imposing a lifetime ban on US military procurement officials going to work for defense contractors, a move that could dramatically reshape the defense industry. -Reuters
President-elect Donald Trump has said Boeing & Co. prices are ridiculous and now he wants to ban government military officials from working with private contractors. But if Trump really wants to root out Pentagon corruption he should start with the nation’s nuclear weapons program which is over-hyped and patently false in at least some particulars.
Begin with the development of “atomic bombs” supervised by J. Robert Oppenheimer affiliated with the New York-based Fellowship of the New Life, here, a progressive society that advanced non-religious morality under the slogan “deed not creed.” Offshoots of this sort of progressive philosophy gave rise to the Fabian Society in England.
It is certainly possible that Oppenheimer could have considered his participation in a string of nuclear lies as a moral imperative. In any case, here are facts pertaining casting doubt on the ongoing nuclear narrative:
The historical development of nuclear weapons was obviously high restricted. In fact, it was reported on by a single New York Times journalist, here, who later, it was revealed, was also on the Pentagon payroll.
There are considerable questions about the radiation involved with nuclear weapons generally. Nuclear physicist Galen Winsor, here, was a skeptic who claimed nuclear power plants were “essentially just steam plants and nothing but the most expensive and effective way to boil water.” He used to eat “radioactive waste” on camera and said he did so often to prove the exaggerations surrounding uranium radioactivity. He died of Parkinson’s – reportedly at 82. Additionally, it should be pointed out that Hiroshima and Nagasaki are fully populated now, and have been since the initial bombings, though according to prevailing literature they shouldn’t be.
Crawford Sams who ran the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission in Japan had this to say about the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Transcript here.): “When the bomb went off, about 2 thousand people out of 250 thousand got killed [in Hiroshima] by blast, by thermal radiation, or by intense x-ray, gamma radiation … You see, it wasn’t “Bing” like the publicity here [said]: a bomb went off and a city disappeared. No such thing happened. That was the propaganda for deterrent … When I came back to this country, I was appalled, from a military standpoint, to find that our major planners in the War Department were using their own propaganda, 100 thousand deaths, Bing! … You don’t hear much about the effects of Nagasaki because actually it was pretty ineffective. That was a narrow corridor from the hospital … down to the port, and the effects were very limited as far as the fire spread and all that stuff. So you don’t hear much.
There was only a single reporter, here, who reported definitively on radioactivity at Hiroshima by breaching the month long security ban affecting both cities after the blasts. He later reported on US “war crimes” from Korea and was shown to falsifying his reporting.
The available videos of atomic blasts are enhanced (if not entirely falsified) as even the New York Times writes, here.
At least one video on Youtube shows the Pentagon mimicking an atomic explosion with dynamite in a mid 1960s Hawaii detonation called Sailor Hat, here.
As have others who have examined the issue, we have realized that Hiroshima and Nagasaki might have been firebombed before any “atomic bomb” was dropped on them, here and here.
Our conclusions were advanced by information that when atomic bombs were supposedly dropped on Japan, a squadron of 66 bombers was directed to Imabari. in the early morning of August 6 (666), though Imabari. had been bombed already, twice. This bombing squadron might well have fire-bombed Hiroshima instead. here.
As a result of our articles, we received two communications from a man who claimed to have been part of these unacknowledged fire-bombing sorties. An excerpt here from the first:
ALPHAMEG a month ago:
Well now!! i was a pilot of a B 29, on the raids of both Hiroshima and Nagasaki. i am 96 years old.
Yes we firebombed these cities as well as Tokyo. But there were A bombs dropped on the two cities in question…
We responded here and he responded in that article’s feedback section, see below. Apparently the firebombing of Hiroshima was launched from Tinian Island, also said to be the takeoff point for A-bomb attacks.
ALPHAMEG 3 weeks ago:
There are plenty more anomalies that significantly call into question both the history and effect of “nuclear weapons.” You can see a fuller list here and here and here.
The Pentagon wants to spend one trillion updating its “nuclear deterrent.” Before the US “congress” approves the entire sum, Trump should approve an investigation of the Pentagon to find out the actual efficacy of nuclear weapons and how much they really cost to build and deploy.
Boeing is apparently attempt to charge the White House some $3 billion, here, for upgraded planes. After Trump complained, Boeing is apparently reconsidering. Chances are if an investigation was launched into the reality of nuclear weapons in the US, nuclear weapons contractors would suddenly reduce their expenses and subsequent charges.
Additionally, the Pentagon should surely be prevailed on to “test” a nuclear weapon publicly and without restrictions. Perhaps nuclear weapons perform exactly as advertised. But not once in the history of nuclear weapons has such a weapon been actually used in warfare though every other kind of hellacious weapon has been applied to the globe’s numerous wars. This makes little sense.
In other words, the same country that drops napalm on children and kills some 500,000 children in Iraq (see Madeline Albright here) has such moral qualms about nuclear weapons that they are not used – ever.
The wars that took place in the 20th century were accompanied by pervasive and massive falsehoods. World War One was seemingly not an accident, as is related in history books. It only happened after Europe’s most prominent and influential anti-war leaders were targeted for assassination. Rasuputin here was stabbed but did not die. Archduke Ferdinand was shot, here, and his death was a justification to precipitate the war.
World War Two, was supposedly started by Hitler, but his funding, as is now reported in numerous places on the Internet, came from Western and Swiss banks including possibly central banks, here. After both wars, significant advances in global infrastructure were imposed.
Public narratives issued by government should be regarded with caution. Government by necessity must aggrandize both its power and the threats it faces. Its conduct, worldwide, is often in variance with reality.
The Pentagon has officially mislaid some $8 trillion in funds, here, stands accused most recently of hiding an additional $150 billion in “waste,” here. Yet for some reason we are supposed to take the Pentagon at its word when it provides “budgets” for weapons and resources it must have.
Thanks to the Internet, most people harbor more skepticism when it comes to official pronouncement. And the mainstream media is held in lower regard than ever. Given the prevalence of the unbelievable “fake news” meme it is a wonder that so many people still believe in the entire government narrative regarding nuclear weapons.
These weapons are almost never directly examined by the public and their tests, when conducted, are hidden away from public eyes. Even their workings are shrouded in mystery. And it remains a capital offense to discuss these weapons intimately – or their impact.
Conclusion: Trump is right to criticize the military-industrial complex and to demand changes. He should pay special attention to nuclear weapons and sort through Pentagon claims over the years to determine which are true and which are exaggerated to inflate budgets and military industrial profits.
