“Continents are plundered, criminal money is laundered, brutal wars are financed. All with the help of opaque company structures and the governments that host these structures.” 🎙️ @f_obermaier at launch of @KleptoCaucus. #KleptoMonth
The #PanamaPapers showed how offshore secrecy 🏝️ enables crime and corruption, but “there are countless other Mossack Fonsecas out there: financial service providers, consultancy firms and law firms helping crooks and criminals, autocrats and dictators hide their money.” 💸
“ “Corruption eats away at the foundations of democratic societies” @POTUS recently stated. And he was right. But this is not news: it is a fact known for decades. And yet not much has changed. Until recently.” @f_obermaier

1/11 16% was the tax rate for ultra wealthy, revealed by tax documents. propublica.org/article/the-se…
2/11 When you see people opposing fair rates of taxation for them and officials objecting despite the fact it would help their constituents, prod a little more around that, instead of repeating what we are told. You have nothing to lose by exploring the idea.
3/11 Fairly taxing those who accumulated extreme wealth through poor treatment and underpayment of employees is not socialism. If you're arguing that, I would explore how you came to use a "thought-stopping" technique, which is not a natural response to real conversation.

🔥The FBI took control of an encrypted communications app called '#Anom' and turned it into a honeypot for crooks, netting more than 20 million messages from over 11,800 devices used by suspected criminals.

Massive arrests are ensuing.😎

vice.com/en/article/akg…
The FBI, #Australian Federal Police & a confidential human source built #Anom so that a master key is silently attached to each message, enabling "law enforcement to decrypt & store the message as it’s transmitted.

"A user of Anom is unaware of this capability.”😂

Operation #TrojanShield captured >20 million messages since October 2019, including OVERT DISCUSSION of drug smuggling, #corruption, and other high-level organized criminal activities.

The idiots even sent photos of their drugs.😂

#OperationTrojanShield

Wow! Big news!!

With this operation, #Encrochat #Sky #MPC & other encrypted networks being infiltrated, does this mean the end of #Drugs #Corruption #OrganisedCrime ?🤔

Hmmm!

It's a brilliant operation BUT may have unintended consequences

A #Thread
I got sucked into doing some amateur study of the economy of drug trafficking because of brilliant TV shows.

When you study the numbers, understand the geo-politics, social, criminal & financial elements behind the global industry... you realise just how powerful it really is!🎬
If you trace the industry from;
- Areas of production
- Transit routes
- End Markets

Then look at the money flows;
-Peso exchange
-Hawala networks
-Offshore
-Trade based money laundering
etc

Then the operational groups🧐

It's mind blowing in scale & influence @InSightCrime 🤯

When I spoke w/@R_Denhollander, @pbethancourt, @ToddUnzicker, @JaredcWellman etc re. next steps &(hopefully) educating comm. members, the most disheartening thing to learn was of the roadblocks & lack of ability to get past certain members (Stone/Boto etc) it would be pointless
@R_Denhollander had been working to direct steps, advise, communicate on our behalf, @SusanCodone had been trying as well. @R_Denhollander walked through it with me to help protect my interests & heart. She told them that whatever I asked (of them)should be done & at my pace
I felt so apprehensive, I knew the cost, I knew how these like Stone & Patterson ilk operated & that I, like @jenlyell, could be shredded & left by the roadside emotionally & personally. These men play dirty b/c out of the heart it flows. They think we caused this & 2 blame

If you believe that there's a bond between our future and our past...
Then you will know that my anger with a regime built upon #cronyism and #corruption is because it betrays their Sacrifice - and this indeed makes be so very Angry.
Their contempt for the living is matched by their contemp for the Sacrifice of our Parents, Our Grand-Parents, relatives the Youth of the Nation - Sacrificed for what? Their feign remembrance once a year,
with the feigned sombre face, which they keep in a jar marked 'Remembrance & National tradagies.
For Parliament now is a cesspit of #corruption, #cronyism and terminal indifference.
Their Crimes, Contempt, Conceit is disgusting they have dragged the nation into a cesspit

I think we all know why #DeathSantis IGNORED the Seminole County Tax Collector's Office.
It was to be him & Patronis' Blockchain baby.
#Corruption #FloridaSwamp #medicalmarijuana & #cryptocurrency
#SamuelArmes & #JoelGreenberg were partners in #GBS Government Blockchain Systems. Armes was given access to DeSantis through Greenberg, Gaetz and Pirozzolo to pitch Blockchain, which led to executive orders & the Florida Blockchain Task Force.

David Cameron’s Secret #Nuclear Weapons Deal Raised £17.8m For #Conservative Party Funds – Sets Pretext for War
Sometimes you come across a story that seems so unbelievable that you simply can’t absorb and process the information properly. It doesn’t compute or make much sense –
until an investigation produces evidence.
The allegation is this. David Cameron sold three #nuclear weapons of a foreign state, put them in unsafe hands and the #Conservative party banks nearly £19 million which then sets the pretext for a conflict that kills a million people.
Conspiracy theory? Fake news? Read on.

Eight years ago, Kofi Annan’s Africa Progress Panel revealed that #DRC had lost $1.3 billion in deals struck with #DanGertler. Since then that figure has only grown. It will reach $3.71 billion if nothing is done.

Want to know more about Gertler's deals? Read this #thread.
Businessman #DanGertler has been making opaque and questionable mining deals in #DRC for over 20 years, benefitting from a close relationship with #Congo's former president Joseph Kabila. See video from our friends @TheSentry_Org. #corruption

In 2013, the Africa Progress Panel was the first to publish that Gertler’s deals cost the DRC $1.3 billion. New calculations show this was an underestimate. The loss today is $1.95 billion, with a further loss of $1.76 billion if nothing is done. See here: bit.ly/3ffCueS

So voter fraud was less common than being struck by lightning 3 TIMES! So Tories now only focus on crimes people don't commit? No focus on violent crime at all? Voter ID puts off voters also coz if you're rushing too/from work or collecting children-it's 1 more thing to forget.
I don't hold with the agist generalisations as a rule but it is, up to now, a fact that right wing's biggest percentage support consistently comes from pensioners+ they are the demographic most likely to make a special trip to vote+have the time to comply with any restrictions.
This is quite an anti-Tory angle generally so it's either a recognition they'll get voted out without it; a deliberate distraction from #Corruption protest bills+lack of Social care progress, or, worse, real ground work for the introduction of pay as you go health care!Be warned!

Chelsea Archibald stated on live chat if a new board is elected, they will either fire her husband, Skyler Archibald or he would quit. Chelsea further stated if this were to happen, all of the other employees would quit too.
Skyler Archibald says he doesn't know what i'm talking about---regarding allegations he will quit---if he doesnt succeed in packing the board with his friends----
told him check out John Huismann's letter published 23 hours ago--alleging Chelsea Archibald threatened he would quit if he doesn't get those appointed Board members elected who R friendly to his interests (family friends).

In January, Gavin Williamson announced that our increasingly authoritarian Govt of philistines intends to cut University funding by 50% to performing & creative arts, media studies & archaeology, with further reductions sought in future years.

officeforstudents.org.uk/media/a3814453…
Unlike our corrupt Government of liars, bankers, lobbyists & charlatans, Britain's cultural, communication & creative industries are genuinely world beating, & among the fastest growing sectors of our struggling economy.

It makes *zero* economic sense.

So why are they doing it?
The importance of communications & media in the lives of British citizens has never been greater, with an epidemic of disinformation & misleading, deeply polarizing, & ideological #propaganda passed off as news - much of it emanating from Downing Street via the billionaire press.

Britain’s #Political #Media Corruption: A Coalition of the Guilty – Byline Times bylinetimes.com/2021/04/26/bri…
From #Leveson to #Brexit, phone-hacking to #CambridgeAnalytica, Peter Jukes sees a consistent theme – parties on the run from the rule of law. And how Dominic #Cummings could end the cycle of corruption

During the current furore over leaks from Number 10,
and the apparent internecine warfare between Boris #Johnson and his former senior advisor Dominic #Cummings, one piece of information emerged which, if true, does a lot to explain the current febrile state of British politics.
According to Caroline Wheeler and Gabriel Pogrund

1/35 In 2017, the tax-exempt Koch Foundation and Koch Institute donated over $2 million to conservative media outlets, including $980,000 to the Daily Caller Foundation, the tax-exempt entity that underwrites Tucker Carlson’s The Daily Caller. doi.org/10.1017/978110…

Call to action thread, an email just sent to me by Finnish professor
- #ZeroCovid #Corruption alive in Finland - aiming to mask everyone like idiots - read and share to stop the evil people
1/n
I wanted to share this thing we have going on in Finland.
In the spring 2020 we had a heated discussion about masks just like everywhere. The ministry of health ordered a review of the evidence and the study came to the conclusion that there is no evidence of a benefit.
2/n
The review focused on the available RCTs and found 5.
Our own Zerocovid group Eroonkoronasta called out the review and said it is nonsense. They then produced their own paper (medrxiv.org/content/10.110…) and published the results in an op-ed in the main newspaper.

In elections, more than 60% support is never possible in a democracy.

Finland is a suitable base for NATO, which is why the economy has been scrapped for more than 60 years.

Given the extent of #ToryCorruption scandals, print or broadcast news or politics editors, journalists or presenters who care about Britain more than money should read: 'The Role of the News Media in Fighting #Corruption Practices: A Case Study of Spain'.

tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.108… Image
Extensive scholarly & other expert literature, including a number of reports from international organizations, highlights the role played by the #media in creating an atmosphere that discourages #corruption practices, & in promoting good governance & controlling corruption.
This study explores how the topic of corruption enters public debate & outlines the conditions that might help to explain the role played by the media in curbing corruption.

It is argued that both a *substantive* AND a *pluralistic* debate on #corruption are necessary.

Ebube Agụ, like Amotekun, won't fix the broken security architecture in Alaigbo.

For the umpteenth time, I advise Governors under the aegis of @NGFSecretariat to sue for the urgent Decentralisation of @PoliceNG into 37 Independent State Police & 774 Local Police Departments.
2/ Similarly, militia groups such as the Eastern Security Network (ESN) formed by @MaziNnamdiKanu can't fix the broken security architecture in Alaigbo. Such window gives rise to the formations of more militia groups by politicians & non-State actors.

Alaigbo will surely boil.
3/ Pending Decentralisation of @PoliceNG, Ag. @PoliceNG IG, Alkali Baba Usman must rid all roadways in Alaigbo of Police Roadblocks/Checkpoints which block the free flow of human/vehicular traffic; promote corruption, extortion, arbitrary arrests & police brutalities.

Replying to @mojos55

Again and again, he found, this money, though it might originate in #Russia, #Africa or the Middle #East, travels through #London. The murders and kidnappings don’t happen here, of course: our bankers have clean cuffs and manicured nails.
The National Crime Agency estimates that money laundering costs the #UK £100bn a year. But it makes the rich much more. With the money come people fleeing the consequences of their crimes, welcomed into this country through the govt’s “golden visa” scheme: a red carpet laid out
for the very rich.
None of this features in the official definitions of corruption. #Corruption is what little people do. But #kleptocrats in other countries are merely clients of the bigger thieves in #London.
