I am rather neutral in politics as I feel most of them are playing the game following the same plan. I wouldn´t be surprised if the two reigning parties in the US are paid by the same sources.
But Trump is stirring up a lot, like a bulldozer running over already establized things, throwing out lies, fraud, blackmail etc on his path, “doing the deal” as he calls it. But when I listen to some of his speeches, I think, oh man, he is right, he brings it to a point. Listen for yourself………..see what you feel.
Often I wondered if Trump is not a real Indigo, an older model, busting the system as Indigo´s tend to do.
Putting their finger in the weak spot so it can heal! Be sure he knows about symbols, colour signs and other gestures to give you his information and messages! EU TV laughs when they see the trick with the water bottles, but if you know, you know!
Every month is it more obvious that corpoations are the ruling ones, they seem to be higher than governments, we the people and as they are not human, errors or obstructions against the laws are just done with by $$$$$$$$$. No human feelings, not for them, not for the people, animals, nature, earth, cosmos and who knows what more.
Aim4truth published MAY 29, 20184:05 PM a very well researched article which I include here!
IF CORPORATIONS ARE GOING TO BE TREATED AS LEGAL PERSONS, THEY SHOULD HAVE PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY, TOO, ESPECIALLY FOR HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES.
Is it a coincidence that Aim4Truth declared May to be “Serco Awareness” month and now we hear that Serco’s $80 billion in fraud charges in the United Kingdom are driving Serco into bankruptcy?
Isn’t it marvelous when Americans4Innovation finds the golden share of the British Crown that owns Serco and that the Queen’s Privy Counselor Sir Geoffrey Pattie is the Queen’s agent, and that Pattie’s intelligence agency is Strategic Communications Laboratories, that SCL collapses at the same time?
Was it the disinfecting brilliant light of day that shown upon the corrupt connections between Serco and Lockheed Martin, the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), SCL Group, Terrington Management, BAE, Leidos, CACI, In-Q-Tel and ultimately the Highland Forum that helped “bring down” Serco?
Serco is the perfect modern-day replica of the archetypal corporation – the British East India Company – who was known by the motto, “trading with a sword.” We have written extensively about this subject and offer readers many selections at the end of this report. So that we can continue making progress with our truth disclosure, we have to assume that the reader is somewhat familiar with our other articles and reports.
…SO WHAT IS A CORPORATION?
Corporations have only one intent – to make money for shareholders who are protected by the limited liability of a corporation that has “person” status for rights but immunity for crimes. Corporations plan to commit crimes and when they get caught, they simply pay the fines and penalties. No single “person” in the corporation is held responsible for the crime and seldom suffer criminal prosecution that includes jail-time. Corporations are “exempt” from suffering the same fate that you or I would suffer if we committed the same crime. The evidence is abundantly clear that the bigger the corporation, the bigger the crimes.
THE MOST ASKED QUESTION ABOUT ‘EVIL CORPORATIONS’ IS: “HOW DID IT HAPPEN THAT CORPORATIONS ARE IN A STATUS THAT IS OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN A COMMON CITIZEN’S?”
We recently released an Anonymous Patriot Citizen Intelligence Report on the origins and corruption of the legal system that has its roots in the City of London UK and the Vatican City. (See: The British Crown Runs the U.S. Legal System) We showed how courts raise lawyers up into a “titled” position called Esquire – a type of nobility. Lawyers become a “higher class” by being called to the Temple Bar and the Four Inns of Court which have their equivalent in America.
These “legal nobility” are like the British status of landed gentry, and by such appointment can then have standing to act in the courts of law. These courts of law constitute another titled position that is above the common person, a noble estate of sorts. Judges are like nobility who rule in “their court-room”, which they act like they own and rule with complete sovereignty in contradistinction to the rule of law.
Corporations are another status of a titled position or authority that is above the commoner who is subject to common law instead of admiralty, merchant, or cannon law. The common person may not, in many cases, even speak before a court because they have no standing or status to do so.
When viewed this way, you could reasonably conclude that courts, lawyers, corporations, churches, and monarchies are outside of the law. Politicians and government employees are often exempt from prosecution also. But the common person is not “called to the bar”, therefore, cannot truly utilize the very court systems that can prosecute him.
Courts (all powerful churches), judges (little popes) and lawyers (titled gentry) protect the corporations (monarchies-nobility) who don’t have to answer to lower crimes that commoners are accountable for. In keeping with current British law, commoners may not even “question the affairs” of the Crown (Monsanto, Lockheed, Raytheon, etc.).
Whenever corporations have “big” problems, they go to “big courts” – U. S. Federal courts – where corporate interests are always put before the lower interests of We the People (commoners). The Supreme Court is the best example of BIG courts bowing before BIG corporations that they say are “too big to fail.” These really BIG corporations are usually warlord bankers, brokers, and money managers.
Legal protection for corporations is unlimited, especially in the realm of tax breaks for the biggest companies. Many of the largest corporations in America pay no taxes and often claim their main headquarters in another country, a hedge fund in a tax-haven, incorporated in an off-shore account, incorporated in Delaware, or thinly spread between many dummy corporations that shuffle and hide the money so little or no taxes are paid. The commoner, We the People, don’t get huge tax breaks or get to legally, in plain sight, hide tax-evasion.
It takes a legal background to navigate the American Corporatocracy and dodge taxes, gain tax advantages, avoid legal problems, stay out of jail, and make sure that the corporate burden is paid for by the commoners, not the corporate nobility. The original 13th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution prohibited lawyers from holding public office. There was the reason for that!
The “Three Estates” of the old world still apply: church (clergy), monarchy (nobility) and the common person. The power usually attributed to the Third Estate – the commoner – is the power of the Fourth Estate, which is the power of public opinion, the media. Only through information, truth, and awareness does the commoner have the power to navigate a court system that was created to consolidate and maintain the power of the clergy, nobility and the lawyers who rule the rigged court system, which we call – Fake Justice.
A monarchical corporation gains total control over church, state, and the people when government allows a monopoly to rule a sector of the economy like Amazon, Google or Facebook currently do. A “Corporate Monarch” becomes complete after the Supreme Court gives it immunity from common prosecution, compromised federal judges (acting like nobility) dole out fines instead of criminal sentences, and lawyers plan the crimes ahead of time and hide them until they get caught. When the Corporate Monarch gets caught, the titled nobility of the Bar haggle for smaller fines and penalties while commoners are crushed in the process.
We intend in this article to expose the underbelly and corruption of corporations and show the evidence that reveals their premeditated crimes against We the People. The mechanisms and machinations of corporate evil and crime are well worn paths that grow deeper with every new corporate aggression against humans and their environment. Corporations are complicit with genocide, endless war, environmental catastrophes, human depopulation, and a litany of evil crimes that seldom get prosecuted.
The time has come to reduce the status of corporations to “less than a person” because their crimes demonstrate that they are indeed – “less than human.”
BUDGETED CORPORATE CRIMES – THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS
Corporations carry out some of the most horrific human rights abuses of modern times, but it is increasingly difficult to hold them accountable. Economic globalization and the rise of transnational corporate power have created a favorable climate for corporate human rights abusers, which are governed principally by the codes of supply and demand and show loyalty only to their stockholders.
When corporations act like criminals, we have the right and the power to stop them, holding leaders and multinational corporations alike to the accords they have signed.
Corporations now spend about $2.6 billion a year on reported lobbying expenditures—more than the $2 billion we spend to fund the House ($1.18 billion) and Senate ($860 million). It’s a gap that has been widening since corporate lobbying began to regularly exceed the combined House-Senate budget in the early 2000s.
Today, the biggest companies have upwards of 100 lobbyists representing them, allowing them to be everywhere, all the time. For every dollar spent on lobbying by labor unions and public-interest groups together, large corporations and their associations now spend $34. Of the 100 organizations that spend the most on lobbying, 95 consistently represent business.
Essentially, corporations pay politicians to “look the other way” and never hold corporations accountable for morality, ethics, or decency. Corporate lobbyists demonstrate that our system of government, run by lawyers and the federal courts, is simply a corporatocracy that is supported 100% by the political machine. Our government is bought and paid for by corrupt money from corporations.
SUPREME COURT SIDES WITH CORPORATIONS
In April of 2018, The U. S. Supreme Court decided by a 5-to-4 vote to bar human rights suits against foreign corporations. Thus, foreign corporations may not be sued in American courts for complicity in human rights abuses abroad.
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy said such suits should not be allowed without explicit congressional authorization. “Courts are not well suited to make the required policy judgments that are implicated by corporate liability in cases like this one,” he wrote.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the Supreme Court had created a double standard for corporations. “It allows these entities to take advantage of the significant benefits of the corporate form and enjoy fundamental rights without having to shoulder attendant fundamental responsibilities,” Sotomayor wrote, citing decisions allowing corporations to spend freely in candidate elections and to deny contraception coverage to female workers for religious reasons.
The case turned on the meaning of the Alien Tort Statute, a cryptic 1789 law that allows federal district courts to hear “any civil action by an alien for a tort only, committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States.”
Justice Sotomayor pointed out that just because Congress saw fit to permit suits only against individuals for torture and extra-judicial killing doesn’t mean it meant to bar suits against corporations in connection with other “law-of-nations” violations.
Sotomayor made a persuasive case that the Alien Tort Statute should indeed be interpreted to cover wrongdoing by corporations as well as individuals. She also noted the irony that under the new ruling, “foreign corporations — entities capable of wrongdoing under our domestic law — remain immune from liability for human rights abuses, however egregious they may be.”
THE FOUNDATIONS OF CORPORATE CRIMES
You may be shocked to read the following facts about corporations that seem to make them above the law, unquestionable sovereigns, and criminals who act with impunity. Many corporations are more powerful than nations. Sam Walton was the 28th most economically powerful force (nation) in the world at one time.
Many other facts about corporations are equally as disturbing as we find in the facts below.
In 2016, 37 of the top 100 economies in the world were multinational corporations, with Wal-Mart Stores annual revenue exceeding the GDP of all but the top 27 states in the world.
Because the corporation is legally considered a “person”, individual shareholders are not legally responsible for the corporation’s debts and damages beyond their investment in the corporation.
Individual employees, managers, and directors of corporations are not generally liable for the corporation’s actions.
Corporate personhood in the United States is the extension of a limited subset of the same constitutional rights as We the People.
Corporations are a “legal person” for the purposes of conducting business while shielding individual shareholdersfrom personal liability.
Corporate lobby money controls politics through Super PACS and campaign financial donations.
At the bottom-line, corporations are inexorably driven to immoral conduct by the fundamental structure of corporate law, or to put the point colloquially, “Corporations make good people do bad things.”
Corporate scandals are inevitable because the modem corporation has a structural imperative to show a short-term profit even if this requires committing fraud and/or shifting costs onto employees, the community and the environment.
Corporations cannot be held accountable for human rights violations. Corporations can be protected by human rights law while they can enjoy impunity for committing human rights violations.
Over the past 60 years, the legal status of corporations in human rights law has been protected through the European and the Inter-American human rights systems.
Shareholders have no responsibility for what is done, to whom or to what injury is done. They are legally immune and are free to be socially irresponsible.
By law, the sole obligation of public corporations is to maximize profit for shareholders.
Unlike human beings, corporations have only one motive: to get as much stuff as possible through animalistic greed, with the single focus of profit maximization.
HUMAN RIGHTS VS. SHAREHOLDER’S DIVIDENDS
Corporate personhood is the legal notion that a corporation, separately from its associated human beings (like owners, managers, or employees), has at least some of the legal rights and responsibilities enjoyed by natural “persons” (physical humans). For example, corporations have the right to enter into contracts with other parties and to sue or be sued in court in the same way as natural persons or unincorporated associations of persons.
In a U.S. historical context, the phrase ‘Corporate Personhood’ refers to the ongoing legal debate over the extent to which rights traditionally associated with natural persons should also be afforded to corporations.
A headnote issued by the Court Reporter in the 1886 Supreme Court case Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Co. claimed to state the sense of the Court regarding the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as it applies to corporations, without the Court having actually made a decision or issued a written opinion on that issue. This was the first time that the Supreme Court was reported to hold that the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause granted constitutional protections to corporations as well as to natural persons, although numerous other cases, since Dartmouth College v. Woodward in 1819, had recognized that corporations were entitled to some of the protections of the Constitution.
In Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., the Court found that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 exempted Hobby Lobby from aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act because those aspects placed a substantial burden on the closely held company’s owners’ exercise of free religion.
As a matter of interpretation of the word “person” in the Fourteenth Amendment, U.S. courts have extended certain constitutional protections to corporations. The basis for allowing corporations to assert such protections under the U.S. Constitution is that they are organizations of people, and the people should not be deprived of their constitutional rights when they act collectively. Thus, treating corporations as having legal rights allows corporations to sue and to be sued, provides a single entity for easier taxation and regulation, simplifies complex transactions that would otherwise involve, in the case of large corporations, thousands of people, and protects the individual rights of the shareholders as well as the right of association.
Generally, corporations are not able to claim constitutional protections that would not otherwise be available to persons acting as a group. For example, the Supreme Court has not recognized a Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination for a corporation, since the right can be exercised only on an individual basis. Since the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission in 2010, upholding the rights of corporations to make political expenditures under the First Amendment, there have been several calls for a Constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood.
During the colonial era, British corporations were chartered by the crown to do business in North America. This practice continued in the early United States. They were often granted monopolies as part of the chartering process. For example, the controversial Bank Bill of 1791 chartered a 20-year corporate monopoly for the First Bank of the United States. Although the Federal government has from time to time chartered corporations, the general chartering of corporations has been left to the states.
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, corporations began to be chartered in greater numbers by the states, under general laws allowing for incorporation at the initiative of citizens, rather than through specific acts of the legislature.
In the late 19th century, most notably in New Jersey and Delaware, anyone could form corporations without any particular governmental grant or authorization, and thus without the government-granted monopolies that had been common in charters granted by the Crown or by acts of the legislature.
In 1818, the United States Supreme Court decided Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward – 17 U.S. 518 (1819), writing: “The opinion of the Court, after mature deliberation, is that this corporate charter is a contract, the obligation of which cannot be impaired without violating the Constitution of the United States. This opinion appears to us to be equally supported by reason, and by the former decisions of this Court.” Beginning with this opinion, the U.S. Supreme Court has continuously recognized corporations as having the same rights as natural persons to contract and to enforce contracts.
The corporate personhood aspect of the campaign finance debate turns on Buckley v. Valeo (1976) and Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010): Buckley ruled that political spending is protected by the First Amendment right to free speech, while Citizens United ruled that corporate political spending is protected, holding that corporations have a First Amendment right to free speech.
The laws of the United States hold that a legal entity (like a corporation or non-profit organization) shall be treated under the law as a person except when otherwise noted. This rule of construction is specified in 1 U.S.C. §1 (United States Code), which states:
In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, unless the context indicates otherwise—the words “person” and “whoever” include corporations, companies, associations, firms, partnerships, societies, and joint stock companies, as well as individuals.
THE ARCHETYPAL BRITISH CORPORATION
The British East India Company is one of the worst corporations ever and is the perfect example that modern corporate monopolies follow. These guys manufactured wars with India, Burma and China. You think Nestlé is bad for sucking up all the water in some African regions and selling it back to them? These guys literally had their own beer created (India Pale Ale) that they used to destroy India’s native water replenishment.
You think Bayer is evil for selling bad drugs infected with poison? The British East India Company addicted the majority of the Chinese population to opium so that they could continue their monopoly and increase shareholder’s dividends.
British East India CoThe British East India Company commanded an army, stole whatever land they wanted, and were slavers extraordinaire. They trafficked drugs, guns, people, and resources cheerfully certain that Africans and Asians were subhuman anyway so it didn’t matter. They directed nations, founded colonies, and conquered an entire continent — in addition to being far and away the richest and most powerful corporation in history, they’ve probably had the biggest impact on world history of any company.
They were only disbanded after the British Empire assumed direct control of India after the British East India Company’s mismanagement caused widespread revolts and massacres. They finally filed for bankruptcy after the British government essentially had them nationalized into British imperialism and corporatism.
The British East India Company is often the role model for modern corporations that are the top military contractors in the world. Below is a list of the world’s largest arms manufacturers and other military service companies who profit the most from a war-driven economy just like the British East India Company did.
The information below is based on a list published by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute for 2015.
Boeing 96.1 billion
Airbus 71.4 billion
United Technologies 61.0 billion
Lockheed Martin 46.1 billion
General Dynamics 31.4 billion
BAE Systems 27.3 billion
Raytheon 23.2 billion
Northrop Grumman 20.0 billion
Leonardo S.p.A. 14.4 billion
LC Technologies 10.4 billion
War is big business for corporations who, in almost all cases, are transnational companies serving many other nations – our enemies included. Whoever can pay gets to play with these war-mongers and economic terrorists. Often, these very corporations get no-bid contracts and then rip-off the government with impunity. The Pentagon alone is missing trillions in transactions with these warlord corporations. Hardly a single U. S. military contractor doesn’t have multiple cases of misconduct, price manipulation, and criminal behavior on a very regular basis.
THE LARGER THE COMPANY, THE MORE BLATANT THE CRIMES AND IN ALMOST ALL CASES, NO ONE EVER GOES TO JAIL – EVEN WHEN PEOPLE DIE FROM CORPORATE ACTION.
Corporations and corruption go hand in glove and corruption is an expected outcome that companies make plans for ahead of time. The top executive in large corporations all have “golden parachutes” that protect them from being held personally responsible for their corporate crimes because they know ahead of time that they are going to commit those crimes.
Corporate warlords are corrupt through and through and rotate in and out of top positions in the corporate world like musical chairs. These warlords are fired at one corporation for heinous crimes on one day but hired a week later by another corporation to carry out their criminal agenda. Fines and penalties are exacted on these warlords, and no one bats an eye. Paying governmental fines from budgeted crimes is simply part of corporate daily business and it is a given that top executives seldom ever go to jail.
CORPORATE MISCONDUCT PRODUCES FINES NOT JAIL TIME
Corporate misconduct is a “standard operating procedure” which is expected and government fines are simply part of “doing business” that is built into the budget from the beginning. Below are just a few examples of the corruption documented at the Project On Government Oversite website at: http://www.pogo.org/about/. The chart names the company, number of misconduct instances and the total penalties.
Corporate rip off chart
The corporate “arms industry” is composed of a handful of global corporations responsible for the manufacturing and sales of weapons and military technology. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) estimated that global military expenditures were roughly $1.8 trillion per year at a minimum.
Global corporate arms sales control the economic world and kills millions of people for the sake of shareholder’s dividends. Profits drive the global economic machine that consumes human life. One is not even considered a “bad person” for being a corporate arms dealer. As a matter of fact, arms dealers like Adnan Khashoggi, Hillary and Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush’s Far West Group, Halliburton, Blackwater, etc., are often well-respected by world leaders and a special place is set for them at state dinners.
One might ask how in the world we have arrived at the point that corporations of all sorts rule our world and we knew nothing of it except rumors of “conspiracy theories” that claimed the Rothschilds, the Queen, and central bankers own the world.
SES logo -2 Flag_of_the_United_States_Senior_Executive_Service.svg
Who knew that the old British systems have bled into American systems through 10,000 shadow government workers called Senior Executive Service members who control all U. S. Federal government agencies?
Who could have imagined that the British Inns of Court infiltrated the America justice system as early as the Declaration of Independence through lawyers who were loyal to the Crown?
Who could have imagined the Fake Justice system that would come to rule America?
We need a historical perspective to answer these questions and the article below is a wonderful summary of the key points concerning the history of corporations in America. We could not say these ideas in fewer words, so we leave it to the authors from Reclaim Democracy to inform our perspective of the history of U. S. corporations.
OUR HIDDEN HISTORY OF CORPORATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES
THE FOLLOWING IS A CONDENSED VERSION OF ARTICLES TAKEN FROM THE WEBSITE RECLAIM DEMOCRACY WHICH PROVIDE AN EXCELLENT SUMMARY OF THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF CORPORATIONS
When American colonists declared independence from England in 1776, they also freed themselves from control by English corporations that extracted their wealth and dominated trade. After fighting a revolution to end this exploitation, our country’s founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society.
Initially, the privilege of incorporation was granted selectively to enable activities that benefited the public, such as construction of roads or canals. Enabling shareholders to profit was seen as a means to that end. The states also imposed conditions:
Corporate charters (licenses to exist) were granted for a limited time and could be revoked promptly for violating laws.
Corporations could engage only in activities necessary to fulfill their chartered purpose.
Corporations could not own stock in other corporations nor own any property that was not essential to fulfilling their chartered purpose.
Corporations were often terminated if they exceeded their authority or caused public harm.
Owners and managers were responsible for criminal acts committed on the job.
Corporations could not make any political or charitable contributions nor spend money to influence law-making.
For 100 years after the American Revolution, legislators maintained tight control of the corporate chartering process. Because of widespread public opposition, early legislators granted very few corporate charters, and only after debate. Citizens governed corporations by detailing operating conditions not just in charters but also in state constitutions and state laws. Incorporated businesses were prohibited from taking any action that legislators did not specifically allow.
States also limited corporate charters to a set number of years. Unless a legislature renewed an expiring charter, the corporation was dissolved and its assets were divided among shareholders. Citizen authority clauses limited capitalization, debts, land holdings, and sometimes, even profits. They required a company’s accounting books to be turned over to a legislature upon request. The power of large shareholders was limited by scaled voting, so that large and small investors had equal voting rights. Interlocking directorates were outlawed. Shareholders had the right to remove directors at will.
In Europe, charters protected directors and stockholders from liability for debts and harms caused by their corporations. American legislators explicitly rejected this corporate shield. The penalty for abuse or misuse of the charter was not a plea bargain and a fine, but dissolution of the corporation.
In 1819, the U.S. Supreme Court tried to strip states of this sovereign right by overruling a lower court’s decision that allowed New Hampshire to revoke a charter granted to Dartmouth College by King George III. The Court claimed that since the charter contained no revocation clause, it could not be withdrawn. The Supreme Court’s attack on state sovereignty outraged citizens. Laws were written or re-written and new state constitutional amendments passed to circumvent the Dartmouth College v Woodward ruling.
Over several decades starting in 1844, nineteen states amended their constitutions to make corporate charters subject to alteration or revocation by their legislatures. As late as 1855, it seemed that the Supreme Court had gotten the people’s message when in Dodge v. Woolsey it reaffirmed state’s powers over “artificial bodies.”
Contests over charters were battles to control labor, resources, community rights, and political sovereignty. More and more frequently, corporations were abusing their charters to become conglomerates and trusts. They converted the nation’s resources and treasures into private fortunes, creating factory systems and company towns. Political power began flowing to absentee owners, rather than community-rooted enterprises.
The industrial age forced a nation of farmers to become wage earners, and they became fearful of unemployment–a new fear that corporations quickly learned to exploit. Company towns arose and blacklists of labor organizers and workers who spoke up for their rights became common. When workers began to organize, industrialists and bankers hired private armies to keep them in line. They bought newspapers to paint businessmen as heroes and shape public opinion. Corporations bought state legislators, then announced legislators were corrupt and said that they used too much of the public’s resources to scrutinize every charter application and corporate operation.
Government spending during the Civil War brought these corporations fantastic wealth. Corporate executives paid “borers” to infest Congress and state capitals, bribing elected and appointed officials alike. During this time, legislators were persuaded to give corporations limited liability, decreased citizen authority over them, and extended durations of charters.
Attempts were made to keep strong charter laws in place, but with the courts applying legal doctrines that made protection of corporations and corporate property the center of constitutional law, citizen sovereignty was undermined. As corporations grew stronger, government and the courts became easier prey. They freely reinterpreted the U.S. Constitution and transformed common law doctrines.
One of the most severe blows to citizen authority arose out of the 1886 Supreme Court case of Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad. Though the court did not make a ruling on the question of “corporate personhood,” thanks to misleading notes of a clerk, the decision subsequently was used as precedent to hold that a corporation was a “natural person.” From that point on, the 14th Amendment, enacted to protect rights of freed slaves, was used routinely to grant corporations constitutional “personhood.” Justices have since struck down hundreds of local, state and federal laws enacted to protect people from corporate harm based on this illegitimate premise. Armed with these “rights,” corporations increased control over resources, jobs, commerce, politicians, even judges and the law.
A United States Congressional committee concluded in 1941, “The principal instrument of the concentration of economic power and wealth has been the corporate charter with unlimited power….”
(END OF SELECTION)
Many U.S.-based corporations are now transnational, but the corrupted charter remains the legal basis for their existence. Citizens can reassert the convictions of our nation’s founders who struggled successfully to free us from corporate rule in the past. These changes must occur at the most fundamental level — the U.S. Constitution.
A SHORT LIST OF SOME CORPORATE CRIMES
We have established that corporations often willfully conduct “misconduct” knowing that they will simply have to pay a fee, if caught. No “one” is actually conducting a criminal act because a corporation is a “person” – but is also “not a person” who can be locked up for committing crimes, even murder. The list of corporate evil includes the crimes of the Dutch East India and British East India companies which continue to this day: war, murder, slavery, theft, rape, poisoning, torture, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam. We the People are well aware of the crimes and have all suffered the misfortunes of corporate greed and their insatiable need to control our economic, political, and personal lives.
In an effort to show some well-known corporations’ evil sins, we bring you a “short-list” of some of the more egregious criminal corporate activities that can be found in open media. Mind you, this is a very short-list of the many crimes of corporations.
Dow Chemical ravaged the health of millions of Vietnamese and U.S. Veterans caused by its lethal Vietnam War defoliant, Agent Orange.
Dow developed and perfected Napalm, a brutal chemical weapon that burned many innocents to death in Vietnam and other wars.
In 1988, Dow provided pesticides to Saddam Hussein despite warnings that they could be used to produce chemical weapons.
On December 3, 1984, a chemical leak from a UCC pesticide plant in Bhopal gassed thousands of people to death and left more than 150,000 disabled or dying. Dow still refuses to address its liabilities in Bhopal.
Dow has been producing chlorinated chemicals and burning and burying its waste, including chemicals that make up Agent Orange.
In New Plymouth, 500,000 gallons of Agent Orange were produced and thousands of tons of dioxin-laced waste was dumped in agricultural fields.
Monsanto is, by far, the largest producer of genetically engineered seeds in the world, dominating 70% to 100% of the market for crops such as soy, cotton, wheat and corn.
Monsanto is the world’s leading producer of the herbicide glyphosate, marketed as Roundup. Roundup is sold to small farmers as a pesticide, yet harms crops in the long run as the toxins accumulate in the soil.
Plants exposed to Roundup eventually become infertile, forcing farmers to purchase genetically modified Roundup Ready Seed, a seed that resists the herbicide. This creates a cycle of dependency on Monsanto for both the weed killer and the only seed that can resist it. Both products are patented, and sold at inflated prices.
Exposure to Roundup is documented to cause cancers, skin disorders, spontaneous abortions, premature births, and damage to the gastrointestinal and nervous systems.
According to the India Committee of the Netherlands and the International Labor Rights Fund, Monsanto also employs child labor.
In India, an estimated 12,375 children work in cottonseed production for farmers paid by Indian and multinational seed companies, including Monsanto.
DynCorp, one of the providers of mercenary services, guarded Afghan statesmen and African oil fields, trained Iraqi police forces, eradicated Colombian coca plants, and protected business interests in hurricane-devastated New Orleans.
DynCorp’s fumigation of coca crops along the Colombian-Ecuadorian border led Ecuadorian peasants to sue DynCorp.
In 2001, a mechanic with DynCorp blew the whistle on DynCorp employees in Bosnia for rape and trading girls as young as 12 into sex slavery.
KBR (Kellogg, Brown and Root)
KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton Corporation, is notorious for its fraudulent bookkeeping, dishonest billing practices with US taxpayer dollars and no-bid contracts.
In June 2005, a previously secret Pentagon audit criticized $1.4 billion in “questioned” and “unsupported” expenditures.
In 2002 the company paid $2 million to settle a Justice Department lawsuit that accused KBR of inflating contract prices at Fort Ord, California.
Many third-country national (TCN) laborers have been hired by KBR with few protections and uncertain legal status. TCNs often sleep in crowded trailers and wait outside in scorching heat for food rations. Many lack adequate medical care and put in hard labor seven days a week, 10 hours or more a day.
Nestle, the third largest buyer of cocoa from the Ivory Coast, is well aware of the tragically unjust labor practices taking place on the farms with which it continues to do business.
Nestle and other chocolate manufacturers agreed to end the use of abusive and forced child labor on cocoa farms by July 1, 2005, but they failed to do so.
Nestle is notorious for its aggressive marketing of infant formula in poor countries in the 1980s. Because of this practice, Nestle is still one of the most boycotted corporations in the world, and its infant formula is still controversial.
In Italy in 2005, police seized more than two million liters of Nestle infant formula that was contaminated with the chemical isopropylthioxanthone (ITX).
Violations of labor rights are reported from Nestle factories in numerous countries. In Colombia, Nestle replaced the entire factory staff with lower-wage workers and did not renew the collective employment contract.
Philip Morris USA and Philip Morris International
Among tobacco companies, Philip Morris is notorious. Now called Altria, it is the world’s largest and most profitable cigarette corporation that kills millions a year through their deadly products.
Documents uncovered in a lawsuit filed against the tobacco industry by the state of Minnesota showed that Philip Morris and other leading tobacco corporations knew very well of the dangers of tobacco products and the addictiveness of nicotine.
Although the company says it doesn’t want kids to smoke, it spends millions of dollars every day marketing and promoting cigarettes to youth.
Overseas, it has even hired underage “Marlboro girls” to distribute free cigarettes to other children and sponsored concerts where cigarettes were handed out to minors.
Philip Morris has aggressively moved into ‘developing country’ markets, where smoking and smoking-related deaths are on the rise.
Preliminary numbers released by the World Health Organization predict global deaths due to smoking-related illnesses will nearly double by 2020, with more than three-quarters of those deaths in the developing world.
Wal-Mart is the biggest corporation in the world that has wiped out its competition. It owns 5,100 stores worldwide and employs 1.3 million workers in the United States and 400,000 abroad, as well as millions more in the factories of its suppliers.
Wal-Mart steamrolls its way into every possible town, destroying local supermarkets and countless small businesses.
Wal-Mart has a long track record of worker abuse, from forced overtime to sex discrimination to illegal child labor to relentless union busting.
Wal-Mart also notoriously fails to provide health insurance to over half of its employees, who are then left to rely on themselves or taxpayers, who provide for a portion of their healthcare needs through government Medicaid.
In September 2005, the International Labor Rights Fund filed a lawsuit on behalf of Wal-Mart supplier sweatshop workers in China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nicaragua and Swaziland. The workers were denied minimum wages, forced to work overtime without compensation, and were denied legally mandated health care.
Other worker rights violations that have been found in foreign factories that produce goods for Wal-Mart include locked bathrooms, starvation wages, pregnancy tests, denial of access to health care, and workers being fired and blacklisted if they try to defend their rights.
The petrochemical company Chevron is guilty of some of the worst environmental and human rights abuses in the world. From 1964 to 1992, Texaco (which transferred operations to Chevron after being bought out in 2001) unleashed a toxic “Rainforest Chernobyl” in Ecuador by leaving over 600 unlined oil pits in pristine northern Amazon rainforests and dumping 18 billion gallons of toxic production water into rivers used for bathing water.
Local communities have suffered severe health effects, including cancer, skin lesions, birth defects, and spontaneous abortions.
Chevron is responsible for the violent repression of peaceful opposition to oil extraction. In Nigeria, Chevron has hired private military personnel to open fire on peaceful protestors who oppose oil extraction in the Niger Delta.
Chevron is responsible for widespread health problems in Richmond, California, where one of Chevron’s largest refineries is located. Processing 350,000 barrels of oil a day, the Richmond refinery produces oil flares and toxic waste in the Richmond area. As a result, local residents suffer from high rates of lupus, skin rashes, rheumatic fever, liver problems, kidney problems, tumors, cancer, asthma, and eye problems.
Chevron’s Unocal Corporation, in December 2004, settled a lawsuit filed by 15 Burmese villagers, in which the villagers alleged Unocal’s complicity in a range of human rights violations in Burma, including rape, summary execution, torture, forced labor and forced migration.
Coca-Cola Company leads in the abuse of workers’ rights, assassinations, water privatization, and worker discrimination. Between 1989 and 2002, eight union leaders from Coca-Cola bottling plants in Colombia were killed after protesting the company’s labor practices.
Hundreds of other Coca-Cola workers who have joined or considered joining the Colombian union SINALTRAINAL have been kidnapped, tortured, and detained by paramilitaries who are hired to intimidate workers to prevent them from unionizing.
In India, Coca-Cola destroys local agriculture by privatizing the country’s water resources.
In Plachimada, Kerala, Coca-Cola extracted 1.5 million liters of deep well water, which they bottled and sold under the names Dasani and BonAqua. The groundwater was severely depleted, affecting thousands of communities with water shortages and destroying agricultural activity. As a result, the remaining water became contaminated with high chloride and bacteria levels, leading to scabs, eye problems, and stomach aches in the local population.
Pfizer is the largest pharmaceutical company in the world; it is also one of the worst abusers of the human right of universal access to HIV/AIDS medicine.
In addition to Viagra, Zoloft, Zithromax and Norvasc, Pfizer produces the drug fluconazole (an antifungal used by AIDS patients) under the name Diflucan, and sells it at inflated prices most poor people cannot afford.
The company refuses to grant generic licenses of fluconazole to governments in countries like Brazil, South Africa, or Dominican Republic, where patients are forced to pay $20 per weekly pill, though the average national wage is only $120 per month.
Pfizer also values shareholder profits over safety standards. In Europe in 2005, it withdrew from scientific studies of a new class of AIDS drugs called CCR5 inhibitors, choosing instead to rush its own untested CCR5 inhibitor onto the European market without full information about the drug’s side effects.
Suez-Lyonnaise Des Eaux
The privatization of water has had a disastrous impact on the human right to clean water, and the French company Suez is the worst perpetrator of this abuse. The company’s billions of dollars in profit come at the expense of poor people living in countries where thousands lack access to potable water, and, because of private water contracts, are also facing skyrocketing water prices.
Suez goes by many names around the world–Ondeo, SITA and others–to mask its worldwide net of controversial activities.
In Manila, Philippines, after seven years of water privatization under a Suez company (Maynilad Water) contract, studies showed that water rates increased in some neighborhoods by 400 to 700 percent. These studies also showed that the negligence of the company resulted in cholera and gastroenteritis outbreaks that killed six people and severely sickened 725 in Manila’s Tondo district.
In Bolivia, a Suez company (Aguas de Illimani) left 200,000 people without access to water and caused a revolt when it tried to charge between $335 and $445 to connect a private home to the water supply. Countless people were unable to afford this charge in a country whose yearly per capita GDP is $915.
Credit Suisse has been charged with corporate secrecy mixed with tax evasion and fined $2.88 billion pleading guilty to criminal charges of helping U.S. citizens evade taxes
Credit Suisse helped 22,000 Americans evade taxes, but the bank did not have to reveal its clients’ names.
GlaxoSmithKline has been charged and fined for branding and hiding safety information with $3 billion in fines after pleading guilty to misbranding the drugs Paxil and Wellbutrin.
They were also charged with hiding safety information from the FDS, fraud, rigged prices, false claims, failure to report safety data, and aggressive marketing.
GlaxoSmithKline targeted physicians to promote the drugs for non-FDA approved uses. Some wonder if the $3 billion fine was punitive enough given the $25 billion in sales from the respective drugs.
Goldman Sachs has been charged with representing toxic securities to investors.
They were charged $5 billion in fines for misleading investors about residential mortgage-backed securities.
Goldman Sachs was held culpable for its role in helping ignite the 2008 Global Financial Crisis.
Anadarko Petroleum was charged with passing the buck on major environmental crimes with $5.15 billion in fines for trying to avoid paying for environmental contamination.
In 2014, Citigroup settled with federal and state agencies for $7 billion for its role in the 2008 financial crisis for knowing the mortgages it had sold were bad while representing the securitized mortgages as good investments.
BNP Paribas has been charged with flouting US economic sanctions and made to pay $8.9 billion in fines.
In 2014, BNP Paribas, pleaded guilty to illegally processing transactions from 2004-2012 through the U.S. financial system from countries that were under U.S. economic sanctions such as Sudan, Iran, and Cuba.
In 2013, JPMorgan was charged for its role in causing the 2008 financial crisis.
The company agreed to pay $13 billion, which at the time was the largest U.S. corporate settlement in history.
Volkswagen got caught cheating on emissions tests and deceiving its customers.
In June 2016, the German automaker agreed to a $14.7 billion settlement with the U.S. government.
Bank of America
In 2014, Bank of America paid out the largest settlement in history (at the time) for financial fraud leading up to and during the mortgage crisis of 2008.
The U.S. government concluded that Bank of America helped exacerbate the financial crisis by engaging in unlawful conduct.
Bank of America lied to investors about the quality of its residential mortgage-backed securities, but it also was responsible for the origination and underwriting of many of the bad mortgages in the first place.
In 2016, British Petroleum was found guilty of criminal manslaughter and environmental crimesand ordered to pay $20.8 billion — the largest fine ever levied by the Department of Justice.
BP was found to be “grossly negligent” and the story of the disaster reveals a fatally flawed well design, faulty emergency equipment, inadequate safety precautions and an emergency contingency plan rife with errors and miscalculations.
BP pleaded guilty to eleven counts of manslaughter for the eleven crew members who died.
Following the disaster, BP played down the severityof the spill, and even lied to Congress about how much oil was leaking leading to a guilty plea of obstruction of justice.
BP faced a $525 million fine from the SEC for hiding information from investors.
HOW TO STOP CORPORATE CORRUPTION
Corporations make a tremendous amount of money by scamming us, screwing us, stealing from us, killing us, poisoning us, destroying our environment or some other crime that one way or another a “working democracy” would stop immediately. Corporations use a portion of the money they are accumulating from not paying taxes to pay off legislators, regulators, inspectors — Senior Executive Service members — to keep them from stopping the corporation from what they are doing that is illegal or unethical.
Corporations, through lobbyists, pay off others in the government to stop the rest of the government from doing anything about the corruption as they all avert their eyes from the scene of the crime.
Meanwhile, corporations spend a bit more of that tax-free money on marketing, propaganda, PR, and subliminal programming to make us look the other way and not notice the crimes. And so the cycle continues as corporate dynasties of monarchs rule from economic fortresses, often hiding behind government agencies. As We the People become poorer, corporations grow richer. As the cycle continues and strengthens each year, corporations become more ensconced in their power and the corrupt streams that reach into our government, at all levels.
Corporations get rich from corruption, bribery, buying elections, buying legislators, purchasing government subsidies, tax breaks, handouts and bailouts while they are protected by many layers of courts, judges, and lawyers.
All we really have to do to beat this vicious cycle of corporate corruption is remember that the first three words of the U. S. Constitution are “We the People.” We the People have unalienable rights in America, not corporations. We the People have U. S. Constitutional rights, not corporations. We the People own America and its resources, not corporations. We the People elect those who make the laws, not corporations.
After fighting a revolution to end exploitation by the British monarchy, the church, and corporations, our country’s founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society.
Initially, the privilege of incorporation was granted selectively to enable activities that benefited the public, such as construction of roads or canals. Enabling shareholders to profit was seen as a means to that end.
In our current situation, America simply needs to go back to the original foundations of corporate structure that kept corporations from acting like sovereign monarchs and were kept in check by state legislatures, not the current federal systems that are supported by “superior” federal courts. A better ‘checks and balance system’ on corporations would produce a tremendous amount of taxes that are now flowing out of America at a rate that is staggering. Some say over 50% of America’s wealth leaves each year through off-shore corporations and their tax-havens.
Corporations want the rights of a “person” without any of the responsibilities. This simply must end. Corporations act as criminals far below the nature of a “person” and thus have shown the world their true nature; an immoral nature that acts with impunity, lawlessness, and with a superiority (royalty) that is “above a person” when, in fact, corporation are “less than a person.”
The “old rules” for corporations will work quite well as a new standard by which all American corporations must abide. Foreign corporation will have to abide by the same rules and make sure to pay taxes and be held responsible for all applicable laws.
THE RENEWED CORPORATE RULES OF AMERICA
Corporate charters (licenses to exist) are granted for a limited time by an American agency and can be revoked promptly for violating laws.
Corporations may engage only in activities necessary to fulfill their chartered purpose.
Corporations may not own stock in other corporations nor own any property that is not essential to fulfilling their chartered purpose.
Corporations are terminated if they exceed their authority or cause public harm.
Owners and managers are responsible for criminal acts committed on the job.
Corporations may not make any political or charitable contributions nor spend money to influence law-making.
SUGGESTIONS TO END CORPORATE FASCISM
The Anonymous Patriots always like to point in the direction of positive change, even in the face of evil that begs to be destroyed. We believe that change can happen overnight once the force of consciousness reaches critical mass on a particular issue. Corporate corruption exists because of corrupt laws, lawyers, judges, and courts (Fake Justice) that make it perfectly legal for corporations to be immune from most types of prosecution – they are above the law like nobility and the clergy.
WE THE PEOPLE CAN CHANGE THE TWISTED LAWS BACK TO THE WAY THEY WERE WHEN CORPORATIONS IN AMERICA WERE CONTROLLED BY AMERICANS, INSTEAD OF THE OTHER WAY ROUND.
We offer the suggestions below as a beginning to correct the problem and put Justice back into the American system of law. We the People will then become the sovereign that we are, and our unalienable rights will not be shared with international corporations that demand to have higher rights granted by some false privilege or unfounded claim.
We can stop corporations from corrupting us with the money that our laws allow corporations to accumulate tax-free by simply taxing appropriately and not allowing off-shore tax havens. Corporations must pay their fair share of taxes.
We can end corporate lobbying completely and stop all influence peddling for money in all areas of the government. When you stop the flow of money to politicians, laws will not be geared to corporate interests and will return to We the People.
We can stop corporate Fake News and main stream media propaganda that is simply yellow journalism for corporate interests. Reuters and the Associated Press can be closed down for indecency in broadcastings, false reporting, fake news, and political manipulation.
We can end corporate impunity in the courts by stopped the Supreme Court’s recognition of a corporation as a “person” and restructure state and federal courts to limit federal courts to the single jurisdiction of Washington D. C., the only place they have authority.
We can end all corporate donations to elections and end corporate tax-free donations altogether.
We can close international loopholes for transnational corporations that allow them to evade taxes in America.
We can limit U. S. governmental contracts to American corporations only.
We can stop U. S. funds from being given to foreign corporations which dry up the USAID and OPIC programs.
We can prosecute Serco and the Crown Agents for their economics crimes, fraud, and theft.
We can write new legislation limiting the power of corporations (especially banks and brokers) and make them responsible for the same laws that all America’s are held to along with the punishments associated with those crimes.

WHO REALLY OWNS THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: THE HIGHLAND FORUM EXPOSED
Since a long time and certainly since 2012 many have spoken about the so called end times, change or spiritual evolution.
But…… which direction are we heading really in 2018? Do we still have a collective choice to avoid the “Plan” made many centeries ago by a small group of beings wanting control of exactly “everything”? Not many are aware of this “plan”, never saw the hidden for the public but not secret treaties, the Agenda´s, the meetings etc. But they are there, well and progressing, always forward but not in the speed as planned.
So humanity is attacking it and not always giving their consent to the wanted changes. Details of this plan must then be changed or slowed down. Have a look at this video, it is very aveiling.
Sophia is all over the news, gives interviews and answers stupid questions of reporter that are having fun. They are every day more in the open showing the “plan” so my question is:
Do You Pay Attention
you can follow the legal papers, you can follow the symbols and logo´s and you can follow the new laws and you will start knowing!
This video just out yesterday. The enemy isn’t hiding its intentions anymore. Are you paying attention.
Foreign aid transfers money from poor people in rich countries
to rich people in poor countries!
It goes without saying that most Americans do not trust the phrase “foreign aid” and would rather stop giving money away to “foreign countries” and give that same money to U. S. citizens who are in economic need. In 2016, Obama’s State Department and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) gave away over $50 billion dollars in “alleged” foreign aid. This does not take into account the tens of billions the U. S. federal government gives away yearly to the United Nations and its agencies that are supposed to be doing the same job that USAID claims it is doing.
These United Nations agencies, such as: the World Health Organization, UNESCO, UN Peacekeepers, the UN Refugee Agency, the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the many other U. N. agencies seem to be equally incapable of helping people in need as is the USAID. Lots of money gets spent, and the same problems continue unabated. It is disgraceful.
When you look at Hillary Clinton’s State Department “pay-to-play” schemes with foreign governments, you can see an added layer of overt corruption and cronyism between the source of U. S. foreign aid (U. S. State Department) and the recipients of the money.
The American Intelligence Media demonstrates in the evidence presented below, that all U. S. aid is paid to U. S. corporations and individuals who act as a channel for the money to reach the “intended” recipients who are ostensibly in great need.
In fact, $50 billion a year is parceled out to the same old corporate cronies that it is always given to — Wells Fargo, Citibank, hedge funds, off-shore shell companies, etc. Then, other organizations, like the pseudo-government agency called the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), add to the flow of money with huge loans guaranteed by the United States government. Therefore, the U. S. tax payer pays three times for the same alleged assistance going to some foreign country where few Americas ever go or may even have heard of.
Only American corporations, banks, insurance companies, hedge funds, personal individuals and the like may receive U. S. foreign aid – not foreign governments or foreigners.
Therefore, USAID is not foreign aid and it is not aid at all, it is venture capital and investments in U. S. corporations and their agents.
It is also well-known that most of this “international development” money never reaches the intended goal. Often there is little or no compliance follow-through or reporting requirements. OPIC is the worst for this type of mismanagement.
Essentially, any “U. S. sponsor” can file for an OPIC loan and loan guarantee and if the U. S. bureaucracy (Senior Executive Service) says yes, then the applicant can basically count on OPIC funding the project for the entire length of the project, which is often ten years.
This report provides many OPIC funding examples that show the transparent corruption and obvious theft of OPIC funding through corporate cronyism and bureaucratic obfuscation and deceit. The use of off-shore tax havens or Delaware incorporations for many of the recipient U. S. sponsor companies reads like a cheap criminal novel.
In one OPIC contract in 2016, Noble Energy was given a $4.5 billion dollar loan to drill for oil in Israel so that foreign companies could benefit from the proceeds. Power plants in Jordan, Israel, and Ukraine are funded by OPIC so that there will be power supplied for oil companies to exploit and fleece foreign nations, often surrounded by hostilities requiring U. S. military presence to “support” the U. S. corporation.
OPIC also provides a huge amount of loans to banks to make smaller loans to other banks, themselves, or customers. OPIC simply gives money to banks and calls it foreign aid, or international development. These types of corrupt practices are only slightly hidden. The sleight of hand is passed off as a noble and humanitarian deed that should be unquestionable because it is based upon the theoretical premise of “helping” other nations.
It is also helpful to realize that U. S. State Department “aid” is usually in the form of weapon contracts with leading U. S. military contractors, the largest companies in the world, who also make weapons for our enemies.
This is considered U. S. “foreign aid”, even though private multi-national military contractors benefit from the “aid” more than anyone else. In fact, the U. S. money is simply given to the corporation along with the weapons order made by the country being “given” this “aid.”
The big question then arises, “Who gets the $50 billion or so each year? Who determines who gets this money?”
Of course, one might imagine that the U. S. Congress or the White House or the Secretary of State might carefully review the national security and economic considerations of throwing $50 billion around the world in foreign aid. Actually, none of the above make the decisions. Senior Executive Service members in the State Department, U. S. Treasury, FBI, CIA, NSA, and many other federal agencies work together through the Senior Executive Association to set the standards for giving this money to the same channels they have been told to give it to for a long, long time. Bureaucratic status quo tendencies die hard, especially when the usual criminals are expecting their cut of the pie.
Take for example Crown Agents USA Inc. who pose as an humanitarian relief agency which has the capacity to “accomplish anything” that USAID or OPIC need done. They are a trusted British agency that goes back to the year 1711 and have been serving the British Crown ever since. Yes, British “agents” simply stand in line and get their share of the U. S. “foreign aid” pie and then take the money to Africa (in most cases) to help the very Africans who they already manipulate by owning the corporations that control African economics (banks, gas stations, media, etc.). In other words, USAID and OPIC give Crown Agents USA Inc. (actually owned by the British Crown) money and huge loans to enrich their personal “overseas” ventures.
They take money for humanitarian causes as if they were a philanthropic organization and yet are simply well-established criminals stealing from the poor to give to the rich.
This system of lies and deceit go back to the oldest institutions on the globe – the Vatican, the Vatican Bank, the Knights of Malta, the Venetian bankers of the crusades, the German spice-trading banker families, the Dutch and British East India Companies (corporations), and other economic terrorists who “traded with the sword.” The creation of corporations as the nemesis of nations has led us to nation-fleecing as third world countries are targeted for “foreign aid” but, in fact, become subjects of foreign resource manipulation and economic slavery.
History of OPIC
Congress created OPIC (Overseas Private Investment Corporation) in 1969 through an amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act during Nixon’s Administration. It began in 1971, with a portfolio of $8.4 billion in political risk insurance and $169 million in loan guaranties.
Organized as a corporation with a corporate structure, OPIC is governed by a Board of Directors, President and CEO, and Executive Vice President, all nominated by the President and approved by the Senate. The majority of the Board of Directors, including its President, are “drawn from private life and have business experience.” OPIC is appropriated administrative funding, and reauthorized on a regular basis, by the U.S. Congress.
OPIC is run by the Senior Executive Service at a cost of $88 million per year with another $20 million a year for other “expenses.” OPIC “claims” to be both private and an agency “paid for” by the U. S. government.
You really can’t have both, but it comes in handy when you want to hide the “private” books of the “corporation” that is paid for by Americans and claims to be “self-funding.”
OPIC is the U. S. government’s development finance institution that claims to advance the foreign policy of the United States and its national security objectives but actually provides monetary support of U. S. corporations. OPIC claims to work with the U.S. private sector tohelp businesses gain footholds in foreign markets. OPIC claims to create revenue, jobs and growth opportunities principally at home and secondarily abroad.
It provides U. S. investors with financing, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds. OPIC costs Americans $108 million to operate per year and expands U. S. business enterprises in more than 160 countries offering political risk insurance to cover civil strife and business interruption.
OPIC maintains a portfolio of more than $20 billion, which has doubled over this past decade. This portfolio spans more than 160 developing countries. Other highlights include:
· Since 1974, OPIC has committed over $11.7 billion in support of 537 projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.
· Since 1974, OPIC has committed more than $1.9 billion for 131 projects in Pakistan.
· Since 1974, OPIC has committed more than $10.1 billion in support of 505 projects in the MENA region.
· OPIC’s portfolio in the Middle East and North Africa currently totals $3.4 billion across 66 projects.
· Since 2004, OPIC has committed nearly $629 million in 32 projects in Iraq, the Middle East and North Africa.
· Approximately $6.9 billion of OPIC’s current $20 billion portfolio is in post-conflict nations.
· Priority countries for OPIC include: Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Ukraine, Georgia, Tunisia, and the West Bank.
· OPIC pledged $2 billion in financial support for private investment in the Middle East and North Africa and an additional $1 billion specifically for Egypt.
· OPIC’s approved $500 million to support lending through local banks in Egypt and Jordan to small businesses with more than $1.9 billion in financing, guarantees, and insurance.
OPIC and USAID
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that is primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid and development assistance. With a budget of over $27 billion, USAID is one of the largest official aid agencies in the world, and accounts for more than half of all U.S. foreign aid and assistance.
Congress passed the Foreign Assistance Act on September 4, 1961, which reorganized U.S. foreign assistance programs and mandated the creation of an agency to administer economic aid. USAID was subsequently established by the executive order of President John F. Kennedy, who sought to unite several existing foreign assistance organizations and programs under one agency. USAID became the first U.S. foreign assistance organization whose primary focus was long-term socioeconomic development.
USAID’s programs are authorized by Congress in the Foreign Assistance Act, which Congress supplements through directions in annual funding appropriation acts and other legislation. To support U.S. geopolitical interests, Congress appropriates exceptional financial assistance to allies, largely in the form of “Economic Support Funds” (ESF). USAID is called on to administer the bulk (90%) of ESF.
Also, when U.S. troops are in the field, USAID can supplement the “Civil Affairs” programs that the U. S. military conducts to win the friendship of local populations. In these circumstances, USAID may be directed by specially appointed diplomatic officials of the State Department, as has been done in Afghanistan and Pakistan during operations against al-Qaeda.
OPIC Collaboration with Other Federal Agencies from USAID’s broad spectrum of financial services to the private sector help pave the way for later stage OPIC support. OPIC’s tools build on and amplify USAID investments. OPIC and USAID’s staff meet every quarter to share information about projects and decide how to refer projects to one another, allocate or share investment risks.
2016 OPIC Funding Contracts
Let’s look at the 2016 loans and guarantees given out by the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) to examine the patterns of corruption and circular logic that underpins most of these allocations. We see the regular pattern that banks are giving money to other banks or to cover new banking programs within their own banks. Huge amounts of money go for future “small loans” to bank customers or low-income loans. The code words that sound “humanitarian” are used but are simply a ruse, like: financing, leasing, microfinanced loans, and many other types of financial instruments that are internal banking operations that are not subject to detail reporting.

Oil and Gas
The level of corruption found in the oil and gas “investments” of OPIC are blatantly insider deals that enrich foreign government’s nationalized oil industry as well as foreign corporations. What could possibly justify such investments that do not even compile with the overt advancement of U. S. corporations. When it comes to oil and gas, political maneuvering is seen on both sides of the crooked deal.
In the cases listed below, you will see that no U. S. sponsor is even required. The money goes directly to companies that are connected to nationalized industries. One might ask, “Why are U. S. tax dollars going into the pockets of oil barons?”
Noble Energy International Limited – The project is the development of the Israeli offshore Leviathan gas field. $4.5 billion
ERU Corporation Foreign Enterprise – The expansion of a gas trading business by ERU Trading in Ukraine. $70 million

Amandi Energy Limited – Development, construction, and operation of a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine power plant in Aboadze, Ghana. $542 million – Rand Merchant Bank and Nedbank(Mauritius)
Offshore or Tax Haven
Any time you see the names Mauritius, Panama, Delaware, or the Cayman Islands you are probably dealing with an illegal off-shore account or a spurious tax haven corporation that is less than ethical, if not completely illegal. Setting up shell companies in the Caymans is standard operating procedure for the recipients of OPIC and USAID funding.
From the outset, the dummy U. S. sponsor company that funnels the money into untraceable tax havens is indicating its intent to conduct a shady business deal involving corruption, money-laundering, tax evasion, and general theft as part of the business plan.

When OPIC loans money for a power plant, it should add, “a power plant to provide energy for oil and gas drilling operations”. These power plants are certainly not for the common person, they are to advance the exploitation of natural resources and the continued fleecing of those resources for state or personal gain.
The other power plant scam concerns photovoltaic and wind farm power plants that have a U. S. sponsor who is simply the middle man who takes a big profit for arranging a “deal.” Again, the transparency of these criminal enterprises is quite clear. Nowhere is anyone talking about the people they have helped in these foreign countries with this “foreign aid.”

Obama’s 2016 USAID Highlights
Obama’s FY 2016 Budget provides $50.3 billion in discretionary funding for the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), including $7.0 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations.
· Dedicating $3.5 billion to counter the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and respond to the crisis in Syria, bolster regional security, and provide for related humanitarian needs;
· Providing $1 billion to address the root causes of migration from Central America, including the migration of unaccompanied children;
· Investing in clean energy, sustainable landscapes, and adaptation through the Global Climate Change Initiative to support a healthy global environment, climate-smart growth, and improved resilience to the impacts of climate change for the most vulnerable countries;
· Providing $4.6 billion for international organizations and peacekeeping missions to share global security responsibilities with other nations and respond to new peacekeeping requirements;
· Investing $4.8 billion to support security requirements and overseas infrastructure to support the people, infrastructure, and programs that enable U.S. operations and relations with foreign governments;
· Advancing the President’s commitment to global health by: investing in programs to end preventable child and maternal deaths; combating infectious disease threats in support of the Global Health Security Agenda; and creating an AIDS-free generation by supporting targeted global HIV/AIDS efforts, including through a new PEPFAR Impact Fund; and
· Countering Russian pressure and aggressive actions by providing essential support for Ukraine and neighboring countries in the region.
To get a visual impression of the amount of aid sent to foreign countries (through US emissaries), we turn to this very useful chart created by howmuchnet
How much net compiled data from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for 2016, and keeps track of how much money U.S. taxpayers send overseas. The red countries on the map above is where the U.S. spends billions of dollars each year. Foreign aid also tends to follow U.S. troop deployments. The U.S. spends more than $18.3 billion in conflict reduction in foreign countries.
The total budget for USAID in 2016 is approximately $40 billion. Another $10 billion is spent outside of the control of USAID.
Here are the top ten recipients of USAID funds for 2016:
1. Iraq: $5,281,179,380 (for conflicts, peace and security)
2. Afghanistan: $5,060,306,051 (for conflicts, peace and security)
3. Israel: $3,113,310,210 (for conflicts, peace and security)
4. Egypt: $1,239,291,240 (for conflicts, peace and security)
5. Jordan: $1,214,093,785 (for conflicts, peace and security)
6. Kenya: $1,143,552,649 (for population policies and reproductive health)
7. Ethiopia: $1,111,152,703 (for emergencies)
8. Syria: $916,426,147 (for emergencies)
9. Pakistan: $777,504,870 (for conflicts, peace and security)
10. Uganda: $741,326,448 (for population policies and reproductive health)
According to the USAID website, “it is the mission of USAID to help USAID partners to end extreme poverty and promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity.”
IN REALITY: Please notice that the truth of who benefits from USAID is stated in the opening line – “while advancing our security and prosperity” refers to US corporate interests supported by the US military and especially by the C. I. A. that watches over U. S. international interests.
Help End Preventable Child Deaths: $2.8 billion for USAID Global Health Programs, which along with State Department Global Health Programs, contributes to global efforts to support three goals: ending preventable child and maternal deaths, creating an AIDS-free generation, and protecting communities from infectious diseases.
IN REALITY: The US already gives billion to the United Nations’ World Health Organization that supposedly accomplishes these same goals. USAID money goes to radical birth control programs that disseminate immunizations that are sometimes laced with drugs that sterilize the recipient. The dissemination of AIDS drugs is a pharmaceutical scam that enriches corporations that manipulate drug prices.
Towards Ending Hunger: $978 million for the Feed the Future initiative in support of food security and agriculture programs to reduce hunger, extreme poverty, and malnutrition.
Feed the Future reached nearly seven million smallholder farmers with new technologies.
IN REALITY: This is carte blanche for Monsanto and Bill Gate’s “Green Program” being spread throughout Africa and Asia to take control of all food production in third world countries. Also note that 1/3 of the money was given to theoretical “climate change” channels of money that have swallowed hundreds of billions of dollars and gain no appreciable “help” to anyone.
Promote More Democratic Societies and Institutions: $2.4 billion for democracy, human rights, and governance programs with specific increases in Central America, Asia, and Africa to ensure that our development investments are sustainable and transparent.
IN REALITY: Used corporate espionage, the CIA, and NGO’s to create “Regime Change” and spread chaos throughout the area, except for US businesses that receive the USAID funds.
Improve Prosperity and Economic Growth in Central America: Nearly $500 million to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to advance economic prosperity through reducing poverty, improving education and workforce development, and strengthening resilience in the region.
IN REALITY: Allowed Central American gangs to proliferate unabated throughout America and help them gain US citizenship.
Connect and Empower Africa: $300 million to support key commitments and investments in Africa, including Power Africa to increase access to reliable, cleaner power for economic growth.
IN REALITY: This is insider corporate back-scratching where USAID pays an international corporation to buy and install their own “clean power” in a foreign nation under the auspices of climate change.
Enhance Science, Technology, Innovation, Evaluation and Learning, and Partnership: $190.5 million in funding for the Global Development Lab and the Policy, Planning, and Learning (PPL) Bureau.
IN REALITY: This is a fund that is simply self-enrichment for USAID itself under the auspices of helping more people.
Rebalance the Asia-Pacific Region: $687.5 million to support the expansion of efforts to strengthen governance and democratic processes, foster engagement with civil society, and promote rule of law and respect of human rights in the Asia-Pacific region.
IN REALITY: Covert funding for CIA led “democracy” movements that are a cover for protecting US corporate interests overseas.
Most Vulnerable Populations: $3.1 billion in USAID-managed humanitarian assistance is provided principally for emergency food supplies and the underlying causes of food insecurity, assistance to internally displaced persons, and victims of conflict and natural disaster.
IN REALITY: Remember that these funds do not go to the “people who are vulnerable” but instead go to organizations like Crown Agents USA Inc. and other supposedly “humanitarian” organizations that skim off the top and leave the rest for victims.
Food Aid Reform: Spends $350 million, for cash-based food assistance for emergencies.
IN REALITY: This small amount cannot touch the true needs of people starving throughout the world and we watch millions die of starvation while USAID spends billions on useless projects and only $350 million for the starving populations of the third world.
Support Agency Operations: $1.4 billion in USAID operating expenses to sustain ongoing operations, make significant improvements in procurement, local capacity building, innovation, and accountability.
IN REALITY: This is a ridiculous cost for running an agency that simply “gives money away” and barely keeps track of it.
US AID is Not US Aid
Just as President Trump has defunded numerous areas of the United Nations because they simply were not doing their job, so too, he should give consideration to defunding USAID and the OPIC and make sure the fake “humanitarian” aid groups like Crown Agents USA Inc. are never given another penny of relief funds for those in need. Just like the United Nations Refugee program or the World Health Organization, the USAID and the OPIC should be defunded. Then, they should have their assets frozen by the U. S. Treasury while being audited and their assets seized.
The USAID and the OPIC are only considered legal because they have become institutionalized crime and the career bureaucrats in the Senior Executive Service keep the status quo maintained while no questions about these crimes are ever shared with anyone outside of the insider groups. These groups have personally benefited from the standard streams of money that have kept the usual recipients fat and happy.
Perhaps Ivanka Trump will be able to show her dad the corruption once she is on the inside of OPIC:
The time has come to stop paying foreign aid that does not fully reach the people need it. U. S. corporations should not be funded through this type of insider siphoning-off of foreign aid. U. S. corporations should not be supported by the U. S. military in foreign countries, especially if the corporation is there to fleece the third world country of its resources.
The C. I. A. should not be involved in protecting and benefiting U. S. or any corporations. This type of economic world domination by corporations under the guise of helping other nations must end.
The time has come to acknowledge that U. S. foreign aid is not aid to foreign nations but is a simple self-enrichment program for U. S. and international corporations flying under a false flag.
Your friends and perhaps some of your open minded family members tell you : deep state this, dark group that, illuminati this, secret societies that, but apparantly nobody really knows about who they are speaking. They normally have no clue of faces that fit their words images. Who are they? Do you know them?
You can go to americans4innovation . They daily upload information a group of thousend of citizen entrepeneurs and IT people are finding in the dark hidden faults of the internet and lawsuits caves. More faces apear every day finding the light so people learn who they are.
Sometimes it seems they are all playing chess, but it seems a dangerous play and I pray for win-win solutions and many people coming out of the lethargy so we do not run heads-on into a loose-loose situation!
We’re Headed To War With Russia, and No One Seems to Care
“Russia is ready. NATO sure ain’t! Oh, they have the numbers and they think they are strong. The truth is that these NATO midgets have no idea of what is about to hit them, when the Russians go to war these NATO statelets won’t even understand what is happening to them.”
Mar 26, 2018|
Frankly, I am awed, amazed and even embarrassed. I was born in Switzerland, lived most of my life there, I also visited most of Europe, and I lived in the USA for over 20 years. Yet in my worst nightmares I could not have imagined the West sinking as low as it does now.
I mean, yes, I know about the false flags, the corruption, the colonial wars, the NATO lies, the abject subservience of East Europeans, etc. I wrote about all that many times. But imperfect as they were, and that is putting it mildly, I remember Helmut Schmidt, Maggie Thatcher, Reagan, Mitterrand, even Chirac! And I remember what the Canard Enchaîné used to be, or even the BBC. During the Cold War the West was hardly a knight in white shining armor, but still – rule of law did matter, as did at least some degree of critical thinking.
I am now deeply embarrassed for the West. And very, very afraid.
All I see today is a submissive herd lead by true, bona fide, psychopaths (in a clinical sense of the word)
And that is not the worst thing.The worst thing is the deafening silence, the way everybody just looks away, pretends like “ain’t my business” or, worse, actually takes all this grotesque spectacle seriously. What the (expletive deleted) is wrong with you people?! Have you all been turned into zombies?! WAKE UP!!!!!!!
Let me carefully measure my words here and tell you the blunt truth.
Since the Neocon coup against Trump the West is now on exactly the same course as Nazi Germany was in, roughly, the mid 1930s.
Oh sure, the ideology is different, the designated scapegoat also. But the mindset is *exactly* the same.Same causes produce the same effects. But this time around, there are weapons on both sides which make the Dresden Holocaust looks like a minor spark.
So now we have this touching display of “western solidarity” not with UK or the British people, but with the City of London. Now ain’t that touching?!
Let me ask you this: what has been the central feature of Britain’s policies towards Europe, oh, let’s say since the Middle-Ages?
That’s right: starting wars in Europe.
And this time around you think it’s different?Does: “the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior” somehow not apply to the UK?!
Let me also tell you this: when Napoleon and Hitler attacked Russia she was undergoing deep crises and was objectively weak (really! research it for yourself!). In both cases Russian society was deeply torn by internal contradictions and the time for attack as ideal.
So I ask this simple question: do you really want to go to war against a fully united nuclear Russia?
You think that this is hyperbole?Think again.
The truth is that the situation today is infinitely worse than the Cuban missile crisis. First, during the Cuban missile crisis there were rational people on both side. Today there is NOT ONE SINGLE RATIONAL PERSON LEFT IN A POSITION OF POWER IN THE USA. Not ONE! Second, during the Cuban missile crisis all the new was reporting on was the crisis, the entire planet felt like we were standing at the edge of the abyss.
Today nobody seems to be aware that we are about to go to war, possibly a thermonuclear war, where casualties will be counted in the hundreds of millions.
All because of what?
Because the people of the West have accepted, or don’t even know, that they are ruled by an ugly gang of ignorant, arrogant psychopaths.At the very least this situation shows this:
Representative democracy does not work.
The rule of law only applies to the weak and poor.
Western values have now been reduced to a sad joke.
Capitalism needs war and a world hegemony to survive.The AngloZionist Empire is about to collapse, the only open question is how and at what cost.
Right now they are expelling Russian diplomats en masse and they are feeling very strong and manly. Polish and Ukrainian politicians are undergoing a truly historical surge in courage and self-confidence! (hiding, as they do, behind Anglo firepower)
The truth is that this is only the tip of a much bigger iceberg. In reality, crucial expert-level consultations, which are so vitally important between nuclear superpowers, have all but stopped a long time ago. We are down to top level telephone calls. That kind of stuff happens when two sides are about to go to war.
For many months now Russia and NATO have made preparations for war in Europe. And Russia is ready. NATO sure ain’t! Oh, they have the numbers and they think they are strong. The truth is that these NATO midgets have no idea of what is about to hit them, when the Russians go to war these NATO statelets won’t even understand what is happening to them. Very rapidly the real action will be left to the USA and Russia. Thus any conflict will go nuclear very fast. And, for the first time in history, the USA will be hit very, very hard, not only in Europe, the Middle-East or Asia, but also on the continental US.
I was born in a Russian military family and I studied Russian and Soviet military affairs all my life. I can absolutely promise you this, please don’t doubt it for one second: Russia will not back down and, if cornered, she will wipe out your entire civilization. The Russians really don’t want war, they fear it (as they should!) and they will do everything to avoid it. But if attacked then expect a response of absolutely devastating violence. Don’t take it from me, take it from Putin who clearly said so himself and who, at least on that issue, is supported by about 95% of the population. From the Eastern Crusades to the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, enough is enough, and the Russians will not take one more western attack, especially not one backed by nuclear firepower. Again, please ponder Putin’s words very, very carefully: “what need would we have a world if there is no Russia?“
All that for what? The USA and Russia have NO objective reasons to do anything but to collaborate (the Russians are absolutely baffled the fact the leaders of the USA seem to be completely oblivious to this simple fact). Okay, the City of London does have a lot of reasons to want Russia gone and silent. As Gavin Williamson, the little soy-boy in charge of UK “defense”, so elegantly put it, Russia should “go away and shut up”. Right. Let me tell you – it ain’t happening! Britannia will be turned into a heap of radioactive ashes long before Russian goes away or shuts up. That is simply a fact.
What baffles me is this: do American leaders really want to lose their country in behalf of a small nasty clique of arrogant British pompous asses who think that they still are an Empire? Did you even take a look at Boris Johnson, Theresa May and Gavin Williamson? Are you really ready to die in defense of the interest of these degenerates?!
I don’t get it and nobody in Russia does.
Yeah, I know, all they did is expel some diplomats. And the Russians will do the same. So what? But that’s missing the point!
LOOK NOT WHERE WE ARE BUT WHERE WE ARE HEADING!!
You can get 200,000 anti–gun (sigh, rolleyes) protesters in DC but NOBODY AT ALL ABOUT NUCLEAR WAR?!
What is wrong with you people?!
What happened to the West where I was born in in 1963?
My God, is this really the end of it all?
Am I the only one who sees this slow-motion train-wreck taking us all over the precipice?
If you can, please give a reason to still hope.
Right now I don’t see many.
PS: yes, I know. The rules of the blog prohibit CAPS as this is considered shouting. Okay, but this time around I AM TRYING TO SHOUT! So, for this one time only, feel free to use caps if you want. The world badly needs some shouting right now, even virtual shouting.
Truth is not always easy to find. Many are now (in groups, conclaves, teams) searching for truth by filing in court for official documents. They are pretty succesfull in their effort. Once you get the offical papers in your hands and can read them yourself, the chance you are near to the truth is much bigger. Some groups I really like are:
Abel Danger, Judicial Watch, Americans for Innovations and Aim 4 Truth.
You find their links and a little intro below!
I think it is now a personal choice to take responsability about what you know and think of how things are managed in our world, who is Mr. Global, who is in power, where is the money flowing to, where did it come from, what new laws are made without consent of the people and why everything could be a lie!
So please feel the impulse in your beautiful heart to learn to DIS-cern

They are researching all the corruption in the world actively since 2006. They have a reasearcher group around them of 30.000 people, daily adding new pieces to the puzzle. They give their information freely in videos, audios, articles and motivate many citizen journalists that just want a better world, justice and abundance for ALL people to become researchers themselves and make their founds public.
Judicial Watch, Inc., a conservative, non-partisan educational foundation, promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law. Through its educational endeavors, Judicial Watch advocates high standards of ethics and morality in our nation’s public life and seeks to ensure that political and judicial officials do not abuse the powers entrusted to them by the American people. Judicial Watch fulfills its educational mission through litigation, investigations, and public outreach.
The motto of Judicial Watch is “Because no one is above the law”. To this end, Judicial Watch uses the open records or freedom of information laws and other tools to investigate and uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities.
Litigation and the civil discovery process not only uncover information for the education of the American people on anti-corruption issues, but can also provide a basis for civil authorities to criminally prosecute corrupt officials. Judicial Watch seeks to ensure high ethical standards in the judiciary through monitoring activities and the use of the judicial ethics process to hold judges to account.
Judicial Watch’s investigation, legal, and judicial activities provide the basis for strong educational outreach to the American people. Judicial Watch’s public education programs include speeches, opinion editorials (op-eds), publications, educational conferences, media outreach, radio and news television appearances, and direct radio outreach through informational commercials and public service announcements.
Through its Open Records Project, Judicial Watch also provides training and legal services to other conservatives concerning how to effectively use the Freedom of Information Act and other open records laws to achieve conservative goals of accountability and openness in government.
Through its publication The Verdict and occasional special reports, Judicial Watch educates the public about abuses and misconduct by political and judicial officials, and advocates for the need for an ethical, law abiding and moral civic culture.
Judicial Watch also pursues this educational effort through this Internet site where many of the open records documents, legal filings, and other educational materials are made available to the public and media. This educational effort, which includes direct mailings to millions of Americans, educates the public about operations of government and the judiciary and increases public awareness if corruption and misconduct exists.

Ronald Bernard worked as an elite banker and came back with a shocking story of what happened within the system. He spoke in 4 video interviews in Holland about his experiences, how he broke down, how he had to hide for 12 years and heal himself of the immense trauma without seeing his family and children. Be ready to be shocked by his story. It helps though to start to see our world in the reality bubble it is actually moving forward in. Be brave!
Good video that explains core issues about what he speaks about!

Perhaps you ask why is this important? Why should I look into the chaos we “the one humanity” have created and are too dumb and lazy and perhaps afraid of seeing? It is important for us, the next generations and the earth though. We have a brilliant oportunity now to dig deep, first in ourselves.
Progress on the spiritual path, all the answers and solutions lay inside you. Then parallel we turn outside and search what is wrong, what is fraud and corruptions and link it to our own behaviour and patterns (inside). When many do this, be aware that Indigos and the new generations are system busters and puzzle solutions seekers, we can change this thing called “life on earth” together.
So do your own research, do not follow anyone, take the impulses and infos, discern and research on your own. You ask and the answers come rapidly, that´s the rule of nature.

Fig. 1—President George Washington awarded the first U.S. patent on July 31, 1790 to Samuel Hopkins.
The following 1990-2018 timeline and supporting facts provide unmistakable evidence of dereliction of duty, fraud, public corruption, the appearance of impropriety, racketeering, monopoly and anti-trust by senior United States government officials, Harvard, Yale and Stanford academics and alumni, judges, law firms and their commercial accomplices. American patent law itself has been hijacked by these individuals and their organizations.
The American economic engine is being dismantled by deep-pocket intellectual property thieves. They have made the U.S. Patent Office their private toy box.
Why patent protection is essential to America.
Bookmark: #Fig-2 First American patent, July 31, 1790
Fig. 2—The first patent, U.S. Patent No. X0000001, July 31, 1790, was awarded to Samuel Hopkins for a process for making potash, an ingredient in fertilizer. Signed by President George Washington. Patents and copyrights are the only property rights actually written into the U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 8. Over 7 million patents have been awarded since 1790.
Constitutional quiz: What are the -only property rights that the Founders considered important enough to actually write into the Constitution?
The Founders knew the importance of innovation and invention and created the patent system to protect the young republic’s inventors. They believed patents would grow the economy with new ideas that create new jobs and wealth. But without patent protection, inventors and their investors have no incentive to risk their time and treasure to do the hard work of inventing.
Bookmark: Fig-3 The Social Networking Invention, U.S. Patent No. 7,139,761
Fig. 3—This profound idea by Leader Technologies made large-scale Internet collaboration possible. Figure 1, U.S. Patent No. 7,139,761, McKibben et al, Nov. 21, 2006, Dynamic Association of Electronically Stored Information with Iterative Workflow Change—the platform that is social networking.
The American public must protect the inventors from the deep-pocket predators who have stolen this invention and use their ill-gotten gain to buy off judges, public officials and the mainstream media. No inventor is safe if they are allowed to succeed.
Leader Technologies of Columbus, Ohio, risked 145,000 man-hoursover five years with an investment of over $10 million to invent the platform that enables social networking. Leader legally filed for patents that they believed would protect their invention.
But a pattern of public-private corruption—as shown in the following timeline—allowed the well-financed vendor of social networking to steal Leader’s invention, reproduce the design, and then use their ill-gotten gains to perpetuate their crime. They excused their theft by falsely asserting that the technology system was “open source” (i.e., “free”) software.
What inventor wants to spend years perfecting and patenting an invention that may then be stolen with impunity? What investor will trust his investment to a government that will not protect the entrepreneurial risk?
When inventors are not rewarded for their inventions, society suffers. China, once known for inventions like paper and fireworks, is now notorious for industrial espionage and intellectual property theft and for copying rather than innovating.
Do we want to risk becoming another China?
To foster the inventive spirit that made America the world’s innovator, we must protect and reward our inventors, and address the corruption that has allowed companies like Leader Technologies, the true inventors of social networking, to be fleeced by the system that was supposed to protect them.
The Greatest Financial Crime in History:
Theft of the social networking invention
To get an idea how things work and did work as Leader Technologies applied for the patents and they were ripped of for power and money, you can work yourself through these 6 videos and “create your own opinion” by using discernment and down to earth thinking!
Listen to Michael McKibben tell our Thomas Paine what it took him to invent the technology that made social media the amazing tool it is today. Then find another channel and listen to Mark Zuckerberg’s explanation of how he did it. Use some critical thought and decide for yourself who was the real inventor.
Douglas Gabriel interviews Michael McKibben in PART 1 of SIX interviews. One of the largest government sponsored industrial espionage thefts of copyrights, trade secrets, and patents in modern times was the theft of scalable social networking inventions. The technology and programming code that underlie Facebook, Gmail, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and most the other large-scale social networking companies runs on Leader Technologies’ intellectual property. It was stolen by a group of criminal lawyers, judges, spies and bankers working with complete impunity and in total disregard for the law. Under the guise of the IBM Eclipse Foundation, James P. Chandler III (who was a national security advisor and top White House attorney) led the group of criminals who, interestingly enough, are also appearing in the news currently due to their most recently discovered crimes, along with John Podesta, Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, John Breyer, James Breyer, Larry Summers, Yuri Milner, Alisher Usmanov, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and a host of others who are not so well known.
Many people are aware that Mark Zuckerberg has had to settle out of court again and again over his theft of the social network that he called “Facebook”. What they don’t know, perhaps, is that Zuckerberg was one of the fake tech-lords who got his invention from James Chandler’s and Larry Summers’ efforts to apply the technology they stole from Leader and was being disseminated through the IBM Eclipse Foundation.
Time to start learning about the truth and the stories of our beloved social media, which was such an amazing idea from the beginning and now slowly is strongly used against the freedom of humantiy. Want to learn more? You want a free social media to share all you wish with friends, family, partners? We need people that start learning the real stories so we are enough to energeticly turn the tides.
This is a first video with Michael McKidden of Leader Technologies who is the real inventor so social media could “happen”. Instead of giving him his patents they were stolen.
Many know about the backdoors they put in to spy on everyone, but the realizing of the true story behind it all, is someting else. It wakes u up with a big boom!!!
Patent theft is accomplished through the Patent Trial and Appeals Board and the many laws that allow the US Patent and Trademark Office to confiscate and control any patent deemed a national security issue. Once confiscated, the inventor is not compensated for the out-right theft of the patent. Stiff penalties, including incarceration, accompany these seemingly “illegal” patent laws that can steal any patent that the military (Department of Defense) or cyber-intelligence (all 17 agencies) considers a patent that could be turned into a weapon. Once stolen, the government uses a complex group of public, and secret, defense agencies, corporate contractors, and crooked bankers to fund the weaponization of trade secrets, patents, copyrights and other forms of intellectual property. Usually, the government builds in a “back-door” to the technology–so that they can control and manipulate the weaponized property. Then, they fund a “front-man” as a stooge to run a private corporation that is built on the weaponized invention.
“Electromagnetic pollution may be the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and insensible.” Andrew Weil, MD, bestselling author
We live in the information age when we’re bombarded every single day with incoming data to process and interpret whether it’s true or not. Because the government and mainstream media have an agenda of false narratives and disinformation propaganda to willfully keep people confused in the dark, the American public is starved for the truth and in record numbers has sought it from alternative media outlets on the World Wide Web.

Den Cheops Pyramide In Ägypten hochsteigen, wer will das nicht? Andrej Ciesielski hat es einfach, trotz Verbot gemacht. Er filmt und macht Bilder von seinem Abenteuer! Wunderschön zum miterleben! Cool!
Ein 18-jähriger freischaffender Fotograf aus München hat sich mit seiner Go-Pro-Kamera, trotz Verbot und möglicher Freiheitsstrafe von bis zu drei Jahren, getraut, die Cheops-Pyramide , die größte und älteste der Pyramiden von Gizeh, hochzuklettern, wodurch beeindruckende Aufnahmen entstanden sind. Wieder unten angekommen, wurde er verhaftet und mit aufs Polizeirevier mitgenommen, wo man ihn befragte und ihn wider Erwarten nach einer Stunde ohne weitere Konsequenzen gehen ließ. Der Fotograf, Andrej Ciesielski, reist durch die ganze Welt und besteigt hohe Gebäude und Sehenswürdigkeiten und lässt so atemberaubende Aufnahmen entstehen.
