Botched Panama Papers Leak Has Unintended Consequences for the Elite

Panama Papers reveal London as center of ‘spider’s web’ … As-well as shining a spotlight on the secret financial arrangements of the rich and powerful, the so-called Panama Papers have laid bare London’s role as a vital organ of the world’s tax-haven network.  – JapanTimes

The Panama Papers leak has “revealed” London at the center of a “spider’s web,” according to this article, above. It is further evidence that the release of private information was a botched job.

Further down in this article, we’ll discuss the unraveling political system in the US, which is now clearly revealing that parties choose candidates not primaries. Taken together, these developments show once again the impact that the Internet is having on hitherto private structures and their propaganda.

The Panama Papers revelations have convulsed Britain in a variety of ways. The personal affairs of Prime Minister David Cameron have been exposed in the leaks, and he may yet have to resign.

And in the US, as powerful political forces fight back against popular electoral choices Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, anger over the entire primary process is growing and may eventually result in significant political change.

It is certainly important to note such developments – and take them into account when making personal and professional decisions on a variety of fronts. As Western mythologies evaporate, civil society itself becomes more tenuous and prone to disintegration.

We warn about this regularly. As verities self-destruct, a vacuum forms. One needs to be aware of this sociopolitical evolution and to realize that it is going to demand increasing “human action.”

This article in the Japan Times reinforces our argument. It is a clinical removal of the studied media pretense surrounding the City.

The Japan Times is a mainstream media outlet. As such, we are surprised to find an article critical of the City. We don’t often read items in the mainstream media that focus on London’s City, certainly not from the standpoint of white-collar criminality.

It provides further evidence – as has been broadly speculated – that the furtive release of the Panama Papers was a botched mission, possibly led by the CIA.

Why botched? Because of the obviousness of the results. Those who had their information released were often those who were in opposition to the West’s current financial structure. People like Vladimir Putin and the Prime Minister of Iceland who had led an effort to put bankers in jail for various financial transgressions.

Meanwhile, individuals like David Cameron, Prime Minister of Britain were caught up in the leaking. This was surely not its intended purpose and further reinforces the idea that the affair was neither smoothly conducted nor efficiently planned.

It certainly was ambitious in scope, a massive leak that encompassed some 11.5 million emails. The intention is ambitious as well, to embarrass enemies of the Anglosphere and further support international regulation shutting down “offshore” entities.

But the blow-back from this operation is exposing the City itself to an examination that was surely not the intended outcome.

It would seem to show that those behind such ventures still have not figured out how to control the free-flow of information on the Internet that accompanies such obvious manipulations.

In the US, the political process picking the next president is imploding and, as it does, it presents a more naked version of reality.

As Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have both pressed successful campaigns to be nominated as presidential candidates by their respective parties, the push-back has clearly revealed that primary results have little or no impact on the ultimate outcome.

That the political-industrial structure has allowed the veil to be ripped away from mechanism of power politics, thus exposing it, is a shocking development.

One can argue about intentions surrounding this development but one cannot argue with the result: A mythology of democracy has been decimated.

Throughout the US people now grasp the reality of the political process.

Hate Taxes? You Certainly Are Not Alone…

At this time of the year, millions of Americans are rushing to file their taxes at the last minute, and we are once again reminded just how nightmarish our system of taxation has become.  I studied tax law when I was in law school, and it is one of the most mind-numbing areas of study that you could possibly imagine.  At this point, the U.S. tax code is somewhere around 4 million words long, which is more than four times longer than all of William Shakespeare’s works put together.  And even if you could somehow read the entire tax code, it is constantly changing, and so those that prepare taxes for a living are constantly relearning the rules.  It has been said that Americans spend more than 6 billion hours preparing their taxes each year, and Politifact has rated this claim as true.  We have a system that is as ridiculous as it is absurd, and the truth is that we don’t even need it.  In fact, the greatest period of economic growth in all of U.S. history was when there was no income tax at all.  Why anyone would want to perpetuate this tortuous system is beyond me, and yet we keep sending politicians to Washington D.C. that just keep making this system even more complicated and even more burdensome.

If you hate taxes, you are far from alone.  According to NBC News, here are some of the things that Americans would rather do than pay taxes…

Six percent would rather sell a kidney, eight percent would rather name their first-born “Taxes,” and 11 percent would rather spend three years cleaning the bathrooms at noro-torious Chipotle.

Of course our system was never intended to be like this anyway.  Our founders hated taxes, and they fought a very bitter war to escape the yoke of oppressive taxation.  During his very first inaugural address, Thomas Jefferson clearly expressed what he thought about taxes…

A wise and frugal government… shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.

Why couldn’t we have listened to him?

When the federal income tax was originally introduced a little more than a century ago, most Americans were taxed at a rate of only 1 percent.

But of course once they get their feet in the door, the social planners always want more, and today we are being taxed into oblivion.  Below, I would like to share with you three quick facts about our taxes that come from the Tax Foundation

-This year, Tax Freedom Day falls on April 24, or 114 days into the year (excluding Leap Day).

-Americans will pay $3.3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.6 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total bill of almost $5.0 trillion, or 31 percent of the nation’s income.

-Americans will collectively spend more on taxes in 2016 than they will on food, clothing, and housing combined.

That last statistic is a huge sore point with me.

How can anyone argue that we are not a socialist society when the government takes more of our money than we spend on food, clothing and housing combined?

What they are doing to us is deeply wrong and it is fundamentally un-American.

And of course the elite have the resources to be able to hire very expensive tax attorneys that help them manipulate the game in their favor.  At the end of the day, many extremely wealthy Americans end up paying a much lower percentage of their income to the government than you or I do.

The Panama Papers Again: Is It Really A US-Soros-Rockefeller VS…

Almost everyone has a theory now about who or what was behind the Panama Papers story, and admittedly, the story does present much for high octane speculation. As time goes by, more and more theories are coming out. Others seem to have the view that I propounded in last Thursday’s News and Views from the Nefarium that the Panama Papers story represents, at least in part, evidence of “factional infighting” that goes on in the mafia we call “the global financial elite”. Consider for example, this article shared by Mr. T.K., outlining the hypothesis that the papers represent, at their deepest level, a struggle between the “Rockefellers” and the “Rothschilds”:

Panama Papers: Soros against the Rothschilds?

Here the crux interpretum seems to be the struggle between a global financial system based on the dollar and one based on the rising markets of Asia and gold, with a backdrop of similar exposure of “Rothschild corruption”:

The Investigation into Mossack Fonseca’s activity is a continuation of the anti-offshore campaign that ICIJ began in 2013. Then, unknown persons allegedly handed over 260 gigabytes of data regarding the ownership of secret offshore bank accounts to ICIJ director Gerard Ryle. ICIJ published the Offshore leaks, comprising tens of thousands of offshore bank accounts, in which many prominent international figures were implicated, including Baron Elie de Rothschild, the head of French branch of Rothschild dynasty.

Clans of Rothschild, Sachs, Thyssens and Safra, closely associated with the Rothschild family, were the focus of ICIJ Swiss Leaks in 2013. Then the data of a number of Swiss lawyers and trusts was declassified. “They helped clients all over the world establish offshore firms and trusts to protect their assets from tax collectors or over-zealous heirs”.

The publication of the so-called Luxembourg leaks was also aimed against the ruling family of Luxembourg, also related to the Rothschilds.

Today, one of companies affected is Rothschild Trust, which managed the assets of some key world politicians in offshore locations. For example, it was revealed that Rothschild Trust, a branch of Rothschild Wealth Management & Trust, manages the assets of Ukrainian oligarch President Poroshenko on the British Virgin Islands. Among ten banks that requested the most offshore companies for clients, Rothschild Trust Guernsey is visible. One of the top politicians in the scandal, British Prime-Minister David Cameron, is said to have close relations with British branch of Rothschild family. Very interesting coincidence. Did you get it?

Butressing this analysis is this article shared by Mr. W.M., detailing just who is behind the so-called “International Coalition of Investigative Journalists”:

The FDA Is A Criminal Cartel – Protecting The Drug Industry’s Monopoly While Denying Americans The Human Right Access To Natural Medicines

The Food and Drug Administration, as we have reported in the past, is completely in the tank for Big Pharma, an industry that lavishes tens of millions of dollars on our fat-cat “leaders” in Washington, D.C., to maintain healthy profits and shut out all competition.

That includes natural remedies especially, because they’re much cheaper, work better and don’t pollute our bodies with harmful, damaging chemicals.

In recent days, Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, director of the Forensic Food Lab and author of the upcoming book Food Forensics, reported that the FDA now appears to have set its sights on the CBD industry – which produces health-promoting cannabidiol products.

“The FDA is trying to destroy the CBD industry with regulatory assaults, but the industry is pushing back (and the weight of the evidence and the science is on the side of the hemp industry). Nevertheless, the FDA is a formidable opponent and they can wage all sorts of regulatory assaults against natural substances they wish to regulate out of existence,” Adams reported, noting that no new regulations have been issued just yet, but that if the agency gets its way, they are likely to do so, which would severely hamper the CBD industry and natural medicine.

Tyrannical overreach

Like every other agency Congress refuses to rein in, the FDA is part of the massive federal bureaucracy – a sort of fourth branch of government, if you will – that writes its own rules and regulations, each of which carries a penalty for violations and each of which has the very same force of law that a legitimate act passed by Congress and signed by the president would have. And in this case, CBD is in the crosshairs of the FDA, which, says Adams, has posted “a clear statement on its own website” stating that CBDs cannot be sold as dietary supplements.

“This is a regulatory attack on hemp extracts,” he wrote. “Make no mistake: Cannabidiol is on the target radar of the FDA, and they are waging a campaign of regulatory intimidation to try to destroy the marketplace. If they get their way, they will EFFECTIVELY outlaw CBDs via regulatory assaults. Their goal is the same: destroy the CBD marketplace.”

Adams pointed out that the FDA, on its website, has already addressed the question of whether CBD can be utilized as a dietary supplement: “No. Based on available evidence, FDA has concluded that cannabidiol products are excluded from the dietary supplement definition…”

In addition, the agency has already begun sending aggressive warning letters to CBD product makers, forcing the industry to push back dramatically against the FDA’s tyrannical overreach.

Profit or justice? DOJ To Resume Civil Asset Forfeiture

[Editor’s Note]

This is highly disturbing because it allows police officers to keep civil assets even if the person is ruled INNOCENT.  This is pure corruption!

The Department of Justice will restart one of its most controversial programs after suspending it last year. The civil asset forfeiture equitable sharing program lets police officers take cash and property that they think is related to a crime – even if it isn’t. “America’s Lawyer” Mike Papantonio joins ‘News With Ed’, and notes that in 2014, police departments took more from Americans than burglars did.
