"Jersey might have $2 trillion worth of wealth, nominally, booked through the island. You've got to ask yourself... what is the product of Jersey? What is the actual product this island is selling... to make them book $2 trillion worth of wealth here..?"…
2/ "The product of Jersey is what I call the 'NON-LAW'.

It's the ability of the Jersey elites - the law firms who control the island, to switch the rule of law on & off, like a tap.

So, if you're a big wealthy client...
3/ "... & you've got all kinds of really difficult, questionable legal issues behind your wealth, it doesn't matter. As long as you can pay the local law firms huge amounts of money, they guarantee that no one in regulatory authority, the law...
4/ "... or the court are going to look too closely at your business...
[Jersey] is a Potemkin village. None of it's real. These people - the lawyers - their rich clients, their serious trans-national organized crime clients that do their business through Jersey...
5/ "... are guaranteed that the law & the regulatory agencies on Jersey are never going to look into them." -@StuartSyvret

This morning, our journey begins into The World Beneath.

You can find the 1st episode of the audio series where ever you find your podcasts. Or subscribe to Apple Podcast Subscriptions to binge the season.

Let’s talk about the series for a bit…/1…
2/ The series is structured as a 5-Season experience. Each season will have a theme, and a scandal - as our way into the world.

Season One's theme is TREASURE. We'll explore the origins of the Second Economy that fuels the underworld.
3/ Although you can binge the entire season at once on Apple, it IS meant to be listened to in order of the episodes. It is a series written in the tradition of the days of radio's audio series.

Serialized story-telling. Each episode builds on the last and drives into the next.

THIS is what's happening.
We understood that saving lives was the big priority in early months of the Biden admin. Shots in arms.
But what was left behind was the same urgency for saving democracy. We need huge moves to inoculate 🇺🇸 from autocracy.

1. Expand the Supreme Court.
2. Sweeping out every last one of donald's appointees in our institutions, especially intelligence community and DOJ.
Every last one.
3. Full Cold War on the Kremlin.
No summits.
Sanction all businesses who put money in Putin's pocket (yes, even those owned by our allies).
Seize offshore accounts. SEIZE OFFSHORES.
Sanction Deutsche Bank.

There is a disturbing common thread among some of our most pressing issues at Justice’s doorstep - an undercurrent, that whispers dissolution of democracy’s foundation.
It is the bolstering of the knowable into the camp of the unknowable.

Derek Chauvin’s defense attorney.../1
2/ closing argument, used it well. He went full anti-science, discounting all expert testimony on cause of Mr Floyd’s death. “How could they know?” He posed.

He even went so far as to say that the M.E. use of word “homicide” didn’t really mean homicide.

I think we all fear
3/ that there will be at least one juror (similar to someone we each may know, sadly), who also believes that science is opinion, the earth might be flat, & the knowable just can’t be known.

Then there’s the latest reporting on the DOJ/ FBI’s position on the insurrectionists.

It was voter data. Not some internal campaign poll.
This is vital to grasp.
donald was the nominee. His campaign had the full support of RNC & access to all their data. Reince, & pollster KellyAnne, knew key districts to flip (i.e where to run influence ops) for electoral win. /1
2/ Paul Manafort’s most recent campaign experience, prior to donald’s campaign, was in Ukraine - running influence ops as part of his larger job as campaign manager for the Kremlin’s operative there.

Here’s just one piece of how he did that. It was noted in his indictment.
3/ Installing Putin’s stooge, Yanukovych, as President was literally Manafort’s job. Then, he joined Donald’s campaign.

But what Manafort was able to do for Putin in Ukraine was even more elaborate, precise, & effective than the traditional narrative manipulation tactics that...

Getting so dark on here, again.
Troubling, hard moments for so many innocents.
Hang on to the light, everyone.
