U.S. emerging as tax haven alongside Switzerland, Caymans

The United States is emerging as a top tax haven alongside the likes of Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Panama, those seeking reform of the international tax system say. And states such as Delaware, Nevada, South Dakota and Wyoming, in particular, are competing to provide foreigners with the secrecy they crave.

"There's a big neon sign saying the U.S. is open to tax cheats," says John Christensen, executive director of the Tax Justice Network.

CLINTON SPENDS PRIMARY NIGHT AT NY FUNDRAISER HOSTED BY FORMER AIPAC VP

Hillary Clinton wasn't greeting voters at a rally, town hall or diner as votes rolled in from Wisconsin. Instead, she was spending her evening with top donors in New York City.

She raised at least $60,000 Tuesday night at a fundraiser hosted by Jack Bendheim, the owner of a company that manufactures veterinary health products and nutritional supplements. Benheim, a former vice president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has deep ties to New York's orthodox Jewish community.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is for the elites, by the elites, and of the elites; heaven forbid that she would have to spend time with "the little people" who, she thinks, "are so beneath her".

Should she steal both the nomination and the election, expect many more wars in behalf of Israel, and the turning of the Middle East into more of a killing field than it already is.

Southern California braces for summer blackouts due to Porter Ranch gas leak

ate officials warn that Southern California could face as many as 14 days of scheduled blackouts this summer because of depleted reserves of natural gas caused by the massive leak in Aliso Canyon.

The canyon in the hills above Porter Ranch is a crucial gas storage facility, supplying 17 power plants in the Los Angeles Basin. But the four-month leak that began in October left the facility at one-fifth of its capacity and new injections of gas have been prohibited until all of its wells have passed comprehensive tests.

Officials estimate the storage facility won’t be back on line for months, leaving local power plants without a key source of natural gas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic example of what happens when infrastructure maintenance is ignored over a long period of time; the ensuing problems become far harder, and far more costly to fix.

Why are there so few Americans caught up in the Panama Papers leak? Because the U.S. has an 'onshore haven industry that is just as secretive' with people forming shell companies in Wyoming, Delaware and Nevada

More than 200,000 entries were included in the Panama Papers leak with politicians, celebrities and sports stars caught up in the scandal.

But so far only 211 people have been identified by authorities as having U.S. addresses.

Experts have now revealed the reason for the low number of people involved might be because shell companies are being formed under authorities' noses in Wyoming, Delaware or Nevada - meaning Americans do not need to go to Panama.

Panama 'tax scam' lawyer is son of Nazi SS officer from dreaded Death's Head division who fled to South America then SPIED on Cuba for the CIA, brother reveals

The man behind a Panama 'tax scam' that guards the clandestine wealth of the global elite is the son of a Nazi SS officer from a unit known as the 'Death's Head division'.

Jürgen Mossack is at the heart of the biggest financial data leak in history, and has allegedly been helping world leaders, politicians and celebrities launder money, dodge sanctions and evade tax from his base in Panama.

It has now been revealed that his father, Erhard Mossack, was a member of the Nazi fighting unit known as the 'Death's Head division', a dreaded force during the Second World War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Funny how all those Israelis who always scream about the evil Nazis when they ask for more American tax money didn't hesitate to use a company founded by a Nazi to avoid paying their taxes.

Shots Fired: Wikileaks Accuses Panama Papers' Leaker Of Being "Soros-Funded, Soft-Power Tax Dodge"

Ted Cruz and Pastors Smite Donald Trump in Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE — On Tuesday night, Christians saved Ted Cruz.
The Texan made winning Wisconsin look easy, waltzing to a double-digit victory in the Badger State and all but guaranteeing that the Republican Party will pick its nominee at a contested convention in Cleveland this summer.
But Tuesday’s result was not predestined—and it wasn’t just a series of unforced errors that made the Trump Train sputter. The Cruz team pulled off a singular organizing feat, corralling a sizable number of Christian pastors for last-minute endorsements that helped shore up his support among evangelical Christians.

BEX ALERT - Cameron: I Have No Offshore Funds

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When David Cameron's father died, David Cameron inherited the Blairmore Fund, which is tangled up in the Panama Papers scandal. So, either David Cameron gave away all that money, or he is lying above.

It is interesting to note, As Edward Snowden has already observed, that the same British Prime Minister who championed total surveillance on the British people is now demanding privacy for himself. But that is the way the elites think; taxes and surveillance for you, no taxes and privacy for themselves!

Panama Papers: The truth about the Blairmore fund - by the man who exposed it

The Panama Papers Reveal The “Big Global Problem”

Op-Ed by John Galt

The largest data leak in history has people in a tizzy. Virtual lynch mobs are calling for the heads of all those who have appeared in various infographics documenting their supposedly-possibly-disturbing connections to suggested nefarious dealings … by associates, family members and childhood friends in many cases.

By extension, knowingly or not, these lynch mobs have quickly called on government to rein in anyone who might use a legal vehicle (for now) to protect their wealth.

I’d like to put aside the questions that have been legitimately raised about the geopolitical implications of who has been revealed, or questions about whether these alleged crimes are equal to what some of these individuals really could stand trial for, and focus instead on the reaction from the general public...

In a 2011 speech, Bernie Sanders predicted the revelations of the Panama Papers

In 2011, as the United States prepared to confirm a trade deal with Panama, senator Bernie Sanders raised a red flag.

“Panama is the world leader when it comes to allowing wealthy Americans and large corporations to evade US taxes by stashing their cash in offshore tax havens,” he said in a speech on the Senate floor. “And the Panama Free Trade Agreement would make this bad situation much worse.”

“Each and every year, the wealthy and large corporations evade $100 billion in US taxes through abusive and illegal offshore tax havens in Panama and other countries,” he said.

Hats off to Bernie.

‘Sarah Palin Should Be Gang-raped by the Burliest, Blackest Men and Have It Posted on the Web’: Palin to Sue Azealia Banks Over Twitter Threats

The problem isn’t that Banks sounds like an ignorant moron and made the comments after getting angry at what was obviously a satire piece falsely attributing quotes to Sarah Palin that Palin never even said.

The problem is the normalization and cultural acceptance of reverse racism, which always gets a pass in these situations.

As we all know, if a famous Caucasian person had Tweeted these lovely “thoughts” to the world, not only would the public outcries of racism reach far and wide, but that person would likely be charged with a hate crime if the politically correct authorities in this country could find a way to legally do so. In Britain, that person would be charged with an anti-social hate crime for sure… if they were white.

The 2006 deal reportedly happened when Mr Infantino was a legal director at UEFA.

Only America Is Interested in a War in Nagorno Karabakh

The most important thing one should understand about the Karabakh conflict is that there is no solution. The way matters stand now – or rather, the way they stood before last weekend when guns come into play – was the optimal situation for all parties... Russia agrees with Armenia controlling this territory, although it legally belongs to Azerbaijan. Conflict is unprofitable for Moscow in every way. Iran is facing the same situation. It has religious and historical ties with the Shia Azerbaijani, and ethnic relations with neighboring Armenians, and the status quo is fine with them. Strange as it may seem, Azerbaijan is also relatively happy: it is wrong to lose territory and get thousands of refugees, but everyone considers that Karabakh belongs to Azerbaijan and they hope to have a chance in future to change the situation. Surprisingly, the situation is fine even with Turkey, which does not want to stir the pot.

Are “Panama Papers” An Act Of Destabilization By Western Powers?

By Brandon Turbeville

World media is now alight with reports surrounding the largest data leak in the history of journalism known as the Panama Papers. The 2.6 terabytes worth of information has apparently revealed dirty deals, money laundering operations, and tax avoidance schemes by some of the world’s most powerful people including celebrities, athletes, world leaders, politicians, and their relatives. In addition, over 200,000 companies, trusts, and foundations are mentioned and exposed in the leak coming from Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian “law firm” that contains files with information such as “holdings of drug dealers, Mafia members, corrupt politicians and tax evaders – and wrongdoing galore.”

Americans show up in the Panama Papers, too

The passports of at least 200 Americans show up in this week’s massive leak of secret data on secretive offshore shell companies.

Given the high-profile nature of some of the foreign names in the leaks – close associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin were seen moving more than $2 billion through shell companies – many of the Americans may seem like small fish.

In four separate cases, the law firm Mossack Fonseca helped register offshore companies for Americans who are now either accused or convicted by federal prosecutors of serious financial crimes, including securities fraud and running a Ponzi scheme.

In some cases, the shell companies created through the Panamanian law firm were part of fraudulent activities. In others, it’s not clear. That’s the purpose of shell companies, after all, to shelter money or assets.

Let Azerbaijan take Nagorno Karabakh back

The main initiator of hostilities is, of course, Azerbaijan. The country's administration assumed that the time had come. The war in Nagorno-Karabakh is inevitable; peace talks are deadlocked. Azerbaijan has gained strength, and Armenia needs to unite its people... Nagorno-Karabakh declared independence in 1991, but the republic is not officially recognized even by Armenia. The history of the conflict between the Christian and Muslim Turkish Armenian communities counts hundreds of years. In 1921, Nagorno-Karabakh became a part of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan as an autonomy, to ensure Russia's political rapprochement with Turkey. In 1988, the parliament of the autonomy voted to secede from Azerbaijan to join Armenia. The ensuing bloody war brought 30,000 victims and over one million refugees. In 1994, a ceasefire agreement was signed under the mediation of Russia.

Nagorno-Karabakh accuses Azerbaijan of resuming shelling

he Azerbaijani army has resumed, although with less intensity, the shelling of the Karabakh army’s positions on the contact line in Nagorno-Karabakh, Colonel Senor Asratyan, the press secretary of the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army, told TASS by telephone on Tuesday. He said the fire was underway in the northeastern direction of the contact line. Colonel Asratyan noted that the Karabakh army was refraining from retaliatory measures in a bid to stay committed to the ceasefire agreements reached earlier on Tuesday. "A truce has not been established but an agreement to observe the ceasefire has been reached," Armenian First Deputy Defense Minister David Tonoyan told the Armenian parliament on Tuesday. Nagorno-Karabakh, a de facto independent Armenian populated region, is internationally recognized to be part of Azerbaijan. On 10 December 1991, in a referendum boycotted by local Azerbaijanis, Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh approved the creation of an independent state.

‘Panama Papers’ Leak Being Called “the Wikileaks of the Mega-Rich”

This weekend an enormous trove of 11.5 million internal documents were leaked from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. The documents show the network of offshore companies that help hundreds of thousands of uber-rich individuals hide their assets.

Immediately, progressive news outlets began covering the leak:

The Panama Papers illustrate how the world’s powerful co-opt corrupt legal systems to serve their interests. https://t.co/IS2zKbNdH3

— The Intercept (@the_intercept) April 4, 2016

Mossak Fonseca is the fourth-largest of its kind worldwide. Its purpose is to create shell corporations, basically paper-only companies that are legally able to hold and transfer assets in one country for their owners in distant countries. Paid agents in the country where the shell company is created take care of all transactions so that the actual owners can stay secret. All of this is to exploit international tax law loops.

Erdogan Seeks Revenge in Nagorno-Karabakh. American investments in Azerbaijan exceed $10 billion

Azerbaijan in turn spent huge amounts of money rearming during the year of high oil prices (its military budget is several times larger than Armenia’s) and made clear that it wasn’t going to wait forever for the Minsk group to come up with a solution. If they failed to solve the conflict peacefully, it would use military force. Last fall, high ranking Turkish politicians made a series of sharp statements saying that Turkey would “do its best” to help friendly Azerbaijan liberate its land. Turkish Prime Minister Davoutoglu made his first such statement two days after shooting down the Russian plane in Syria. The same statements were made during the meeting of Erdogan and Azeri President Ilham Aliyev, with a lot of pan-Turkish statements from Erdogan. Turkey has many military advisors in the Azerbaijan army, and its policy can be considered as pay-back for Moscow’s actions in Syria, in particular for supporting the Syrian Kurds.

Geopolitics of Corruption: George Soros and the 'Panama Leaks'

The scale of the published information indicates that this is the fruit of the work of not only "independent journalists", but also state or large private intelligence corporations. If this is so, then the new scandal has specific geopolitical objectives. Due to the large number of published documents, checking their authenticity is not possible in the short term, which means that they are open to manipulation, especially in the media sphere... But if Putin's name is not mentioned in the published documents, and if the "evidence" gathered against the Russian president is indirect, two other post-Soviet leaders, Ilham Aliyev and his family, and Petro Poroshenko, are mentioned directly. It is significant that on the eve of the publication of the material, Aliyev, during his visit to the United States, decided to launch a war in Nagorno-Karabakh. Coincidence? I do not think so.

The revelation that the rich and wealthy are shovelling money in overseas tax havens is not a particularly surprising one.

The Panama Papers: Is their release a coup attempt between Soros and Rothschild?

Yet perhaps what is most intriguing in all of this is who is behind this massive whistle blowing, and what they have to gain by taking on some of the most powerful elites that run the world. It starts when you look at the 'innocuous' logo that resides on the webpage of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

Open Society Foundations is a George Soros managed foundation that is used for all sorts of sovereign manipulations such as acting as controlling media, and impacting political elections. And USAID is long believed to be a front for the Central Intelligence Agency, and the many NGO's they control.

So one of the most important questions behind the revealing of information on the tax evasion habits of the powerful elites is why members of the oligarchy would rat out their own peers, and in the end, what is the ultimate goal of such a scandal?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that Soros funds the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists may explain why none of the 441 Americans indicated in the documents have yet to be publicly named.

The evidence that he is witnessed and recorded handing into the BBC to do their own full investigation, is set to reveal the biggest political corruption scandal in British history, that included the setup of a colossal 250,000 “shell virtual oil and gas companies” registered from a few house addresses in Finchley Rd London, and linked to the most prominent people at the core of the British establishment. These companies were deliberately set up to steal and rob BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS of pounds from the public and asset strip the whole country!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BBC, so far, has not reported the story!

Alert: Voter fraud may be underway in Wisconsin and other states

One local woman is questioning if voter fraud is in fact taking place after doing a little research of her own. The woman told Infowars’ Rob Dew that she recently received a phone call from her friend who explained to her that a “sample ballot” was posted in a local publication for viewing and that she saw something on the ballot that she was very concerned about.

According to the woman, the ballot had an additional checkbox on it titled “Uninstructed Delegation,” which the woman also found on other ballots in the vicinity.

After asking a supervisor about the checkbox, the woman found out that if someone were to check the box they are handing over their voting authority to the party.

“72-HOUR COUNTDOWN CLOCK” MAY EXPIRE ON MONDAY

On March 28, Sibley appealed to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts for a stay of the restraining order put in place by DC Judge Richard Roberts.

On March 16, Richard Roberts abruptly resigned his post after a lawsuit was filed accusing him of “sexual assault” many years before. His legal team stated that his resignation was the result of a “disability.”

The Supreme Court docketed the matter on Friday. Earlier that day, Sibley declared that he had set a “72-hour countdown clock” marking the time at which the remaining Verizon phone records from Palfrey’s now-defunct business will be released to the media automatically from the four servers where it is stored, without any further action on his part, should the clock not be reset at some point in between.

At least two mainstream media outlets – MSNBC and U.S. News & World Report – issued reports last week on Sibley’s claim.

Mossack Fonseca Has 441 U.S. Clients: Who Are They?

As the shock from the initial revelation of leaked Mossack Fonseca files fades away, one recurring question has emerged: why were there no American clients of the firm named (at least not yet)? After all, leaders in Iceland, Russia, Ukraine, Brazil, Australia and many other nations are already facing questions about their use of the Panamanian law firm, and yet nothing about the US?

One hint may have emerged when observing at the funding supporters of the project, among which we find George Soros' heavily financially connected Open Society:

Clearly, this would imply editorial intervention by the funding sources due to a potential "conflict of interest", although hopefully not as that would undermine the objective nature of this massive journalistic undertaking.

After Years of Oppression US to Pay Out Nearly $1 Billion to Native Americans

In a historic settlement, Native American tribes have been awarded nearly a billion dollars. The U.S. Department of Justice announced this week that a settlement was reached with 645 Native American Tribes for the sum of $940 million dollars.
The settlement stems from a 1990 lawsuit, which claimed the U.S. government failed to pay its portion of federal contracts for housing, education, law enforcement and healthcare, as well as a number of other support programs.
When the federal government failed to meet its obligations, people on the tribal lands were decimated by suffering, according to tribal leaders.

Protestors pelt Icelandic parliament with eggs, yoghurt and BANANAS in call for PM to quit

TENS OF THOUSANDS of protestors have descended on Reykjavic today hurling yoghurts, eggs and bananas at the Icelandic parliament in a furious demanding for the country's beleaguered Prime Minister to quit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that bananas have to be imported to Iceland, I suppose there is some significance in their choice of fruit to hurl, but good for the Icelandic people. The taxpayers of every nation implicated in the Panama Papers scandal should be doing exactly the same thing!

In 'Panama Papers', The Guardian Finds Imaginary Putin Link to Offshore Deals

Neither of his articles mentions by name any of the 12 world leaders, past and present, actually identified in the documents, nor do they mention David Cameron’s dad, who is also in there. No, they focus on a cellist friend of Putin’s, talk about his daughter’s marriage, and include an awful lot of diagrams with big arrows that point at pictures of…Vladimir Putin. This is, apparently, all evidence of…something.

…I’m not sure what, but it will probably be discussed at length in the “book” Luke Harding is probably planning to publish in a couple of weeks. That’s if the NSA don’t delete it all while he’s typing.

The only important, or even true, phrase Harding uses appears at the very top of this article:

…the president’s name does not appear in any of the records…

The Broken BBC From Public Service to Corporate Power

Where, then, did the resources of public service broadcasting go, and what happened at the end of the 1990s? In 1997, the BBC invested heavily in the newly created News24 Channel. In No News Is Bad News: Radio, Television and the Public (2014) Michael Bromley notes the corporation “was heavily criticized for the development and subsequent cost of BBC News 24, which is available 24 hours a day,” and which diverted funds and resources away from other, established channels and programs.2 But the cost and burden to the rest of the network is not the only issue. The evidence increasingly suggests that this investment signaled the BBC’s metamorphosis from a rounded, albeit unaccountable, public service provider, to a full-blown corporate state broadcaster and propagandist.
