OK, ready for some FTX tweets?

Here's a 🧵on the Debtors' objection to the JPL Stay Relief motion, and I'll also cover the OCUC objection to the same, for fun.
The bit about "y'all haven't been recognized" feels like a cheap shot? But also, why hasn't recognition been advanced yet? What's going on here?

The part about assertions of ownership is a weird one. It's not uncommon to share services across entities, but typically there'd be an SLA or SSA in place to dictate the terms, reimbursements, etc. Safe bet that that doesn't exist here.

I wonder if DeVaugan Dames, the registered agent for lyin' George #Santos #Devolder company in Merritt Island, FL is connected to this Central FL developer. They seem to both move a lot of money to and from the #Bahamas. Could just be a coincidence...🤔

Heres a good thread on what #Santos spent his money on. The grifts within the grift.

Apparently, some of the connections lead to Miami...#BecauseMiami.

There are only four known clients of the Devolder Org: dealerships, a firm tied to a Long Island insurance conglomerate, and two groups linked to none other than the Ruiz family.…

1/ "[Santos] worked at a Melbourne, FL company called Harbor City Capital that was accused by the SEC in 2021 of running a $17 million Ponzi scheme. Subsequently, he supposedly made at least $3.5 million called Devolder Organization LLC.… ImageImage
2/ The former managers of Harbor City Capital all seem to be pretty closely connected to Santos.

Melbourne, FL, and Merritt Island, FL are both located in #BrevardCounty which is home to America's Space Center at #CapeCanaveral ImageImage
"Two of the firms linked to Santos and his associates are supposed strategy firms that got money from Republican congressional campaigns. One took in over $110,000 from the unsuccessful challenge to @AOC. The other did work for a candidate who claims to have never heard of them. Image

Die #FTX-Pleite und die Machenschaften von Sam Bankman-Fried (#SBF) ziehen immer weitere Kreise. Es geht um #China, das #WEF, den Krieg in der #Ukraine und die US-Präsidentschaftswahlen. Eine Übersicht der kursierenden Theorien 👇🧵
Vorab: #SBF hat Kunden um mindestens zehn Milliarden US-Dollar betrogen. Es ist der vielleicht größte Betrug der Finanzgeschichte. Was geschehen ist, findest Du hier:…
Theorie 1: Sam Bankman-Fried ist Sohn zweier Professoren und ist bestens vernetzt in der amerikanischen Elite - insbesondere unter den Demokraten. Mit seinen Spenden soll er für den Wahlsieg von Joe #Biden verantwortlich sein

Sam Bankman-Fried l'ex CEO della #FTX , insieme ad altri due soci, il direttore dell'ingegneria Nishad Singh e il co-fondatore Gary Wang, sono in stato di fermo alle #Bahamas.
Decine di miliardi di dollari che l’amm. #Biden diceva di destinare all'#Ucraina mentre poi in realtà sono stati riciclati negli #USA per finanziare i Dem. Ora i soldi sono finiti, e #FTX è in bancarotta.
Bankman-Fried stava cercando di fuggire a Dubai, negli Emirati Arabi, che prima del 24 febbraio 2022 non aveva alcun trattato di estradizione con gli Stati Uniti. È stato fermato e interrogato dalla polizia federale delle Bahamas.

1/14 Enfin arrivé à la #COP27 après 7h de traversée du Sinaï et plusieurs contrôles policiers. Pile pour la deuxième journée du Sommet des nombreux dirigeants et des quelques dirigeantes 👀.
Petit tour d’horizons des interventions marquantes ⬇️
2. D’abord l’#Ukraine, sur toutes les bouches. @ZelenskyyUa a fait une apparition vidéo en fin de journée décriant la destruction par la Russie de 5 millions d’acres de forêts en 6 mois et appelant à un plan global évaluant l’impact de l’action militaire sur le climat et l’env.
3. Les récentes inondations au #Pakistan ont suscité une vague de solidarité. Avec un hiver dur qui arrive, le PM pakistanais @CMShehbaz a lancé un puissant cri du cœur pour la #justice: « La COP est un forum où nous, pays vulnérables, venons plaider notre cause aux pays riches…

1/16. Its day three at #COP27 and here is your #LossAndDamage focused daily thread. Today we saw several pledges of funding to address #LossAndDamage from developed countries and the start of negotiations on #LossAndDamage finance.
2/16. Before negotiations kicked off this morning @LicypriyaK made a powerful intervention at the @ResilienceFron1 pavilion in which she urged leaders to “give #ClimateFinance to the vulnerable countries who are affected by #ClimateChange to pay for #LossAndDmage”.
3/16. First up was continued negotiations on the operationalisation of the #SantiagoNetwork for #LossAndDamage during which parties continued to discuss the structure of #SantiagoNetwork including the potential for an advisory board, secretariat, focal points and network members.

1/6: The current German Center-Left/Center-Right so-called "#GrandCoalition" #GroKo is now without a #majority in the polls. This increases the likelihood that #Merkel's departure in fall 2021 will not only usher in a change of government and #chancellor.…
2/6: The #Bundestag elections in September 2021 will seemingly also herald a new era in #Germanfederalpolitics - in the form of an entirely novel #governmental #coalition. Image
3/6: Both, the so-called Black-Green Coalition, i.e. a joint government of the @cducsubt and @GrueneBundestag, and the so-called Traffic Light Coalition, i.e. a joint government of @diegruenen, @spdde and @fdpbt, would be a first in Berlin. Image

Harbour Island è un’isola delle #Bahamas famosa per le sue spiagge rosa che attraggono molti turisti americani, non altrettanto per il ritrovamento di oggetti misteriosi di possibile origine aliena. (1/11)
Così, quando il 26 febbraio scorso Manon Clarke, una turista inglese, vide una sfera metallica argentata che spuntava dalla sabbia (seconda foto), rimase sorpresa e cercò un po’ imprudentemente di scoprirla del tutto insieme ai familiari. (2/11)
Ho cercato di capire di che cosa si tratta insieme al mio ex collega Salvatore Tavera, che ringrazio per la consulenza. (3/11)

The latest #OCC guidance allowing settlement through #stablecoins is exciting but with many side effects. There are threads that link it to the #Bitcoin price and ATHs, #Tether ,#Libra , #JPMorgan #WallStreet , #DCEP. I'm watching out for 6 aspects 👇1/n
1 - What most have caught on to is that stablecoins getting linked to banks will eventually make them more regulated and justify full AML/KYC disclosures. This will eventually be required everywhere, not just in the US. Another impact would be on reserve management..2/n
2 - There are few credible audits on the reserves of stablecoins. This will have implications for the #Bitcoin price. Many are aware that Bitcoin rice pumps are often correlated to heavy #Tether minting and movements from whale wallets. 3/n

¿El #ProyectoGuaidó nombró #seudoembajadores en Bahamas y Andorra para aprovechar estos paraísos fiscales?
Luego de las revelaciones de sobornos y corrupción en el gobierno de fantasía, no es descabellado pensar que estos "diplomáticos" van en buscan de un botín escondido.
El 19MAR de 2019, designó a Carmen Eloísa Alguindigue como #seudoembajadora en el principado de #Andorra. Allí hay 4 mil 200 millones de $$ robados a Venezuela y congelados por tribunales locales (la Fiscalía venezolana procesó y encarceló a dos primos del ex ministro Ramírez).
La falta de un embajador in situ del gobierno constitucional (el embajador de Venezuela en Francia ejerce funciones allí también) y el reconocimiento de este país al gobierno de fantasía le allana el camino para apoderarse del botín.

6 months ago this morning, Category-5 #Hurricane #DORIAN, with winds of 160 knots (185 mph), made perfect, direct hit on Marsh Harbour in #Bahamas. I was there. This morning I’ll tweet like I would’ve in real time, if I’d still had connection to outside world. Check back here.
11:30 am (01 Sep): In a school on a hill—hunkered down in solid-concrete classroom with 11 others, including toddlers. Radar says hurricane’s inner core is just about here. Winds getting nasty—trees coming down, stuff flying. Feel like I'm about to get on rollercoaster. 973.4 mb.
12:12 pm (01 Sep): Getting deep in cyclone's inner core. Wind coming in big, sweeping pulses—& getting worse. Roaring. Gusts hammering walls with force of dynamite. Watching it all through cracks in shutters on downwind side of room. 952.4 mb.
