F-35 ‘Mistake’ Continued

  • The Money Pit Deepens: US Air Force to Spend $500 Million on F-35 Base

    The controversial fighter jet has undergone a number of setbacks throughout its development. From cyberattack vulnerabilities to major issues with the plane’s propulsion system, it has taken over $1 trillion to bring just a handful of the new F-35s to flight-readiness.But as the first fighters prepare to enter service, the Pentagon must brace for a new round of expenses.On Monday, the US Air Force announced that Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska had been “selected as the new home for the Air Force’s first operational overseas F-35A Lightning IIs.”

    The base will receive two squadrons of the fighter jets in 2020, a force equaling 54 F-35s.

    That gives the air base less than five years to upgrade its facilities to accommodate the new aircraft. Given that Eielson was chosen in part out of cost considerations, it’s surprising that it will take an estimated $500 million to renovate the facility.

    Most of that money will go toward the construction of new hangars, but more will be spent on new “recreational facilities” to accommodate increased personnel.

Techno-tool Tyranny

  • Windows 10 is Stealing Your Bandwidth (You Might Want to Delete It)

    We’ve heard a lot of not so nice things about Microsoft’s latest spawn of MS DOS. Aside from the built-in trojan horse back door access uncovered earlier, this is probably the most insidious little side effect ever included in a software OS.

    The fact that the Svengalis in Seattle thought that no one would notice might be a testament as to how out of touch that corporation is with public sentiments regarding centralized command of control software products.

    Q: Why do they need all of that bandwidth, and why does Microsoft need to “update” your PC nearly every day?

    1-Microsoft-Trojan-Horse
    (Some might argue with Linus Torvalds on this point)

    The Hacker News

    After installing Windows 10, Feeling like your Internet Bandwidth is dropping away? Windows 10 is stealing your network bandwidth.

    Along with the privacy features related to Wi-Fi Sense, Windows 10 users should check for another hidden by default feature that uses your network bandwidth to share updates with other Windows 10 users across the Internet.

    Microsoft launched Windows 10 on July 29 and offered a free upgrade to Windows 7,8 and 8.1 users, and for anyone who wants to download it. But, handling millions of simultaneous 3.5GB downloads is quite difficult for the company.

    So, in order to cope up with the issue, Microsoft has baked a new feature into its latest desktop operating system that uses the torrent-style approach to obtain software updates, allowing Windows 10 users to download updates from other users.

    (…) this peer-to-peer sharing method offered by Windows 10 is using your precious Internet bandwidth, without hinting you about it, because the feature is enabled by default in Windows 10 Home and Pro edition. WUDO is also enabled in Windows 10 Enterprise and Education, but only for the local network.

     

  • 5D Quartz Coin Can Store All Human History for 14 Billion Years

    Nicknamed the “Superman memory crystal,” a new storage device made of nanostructured glass can archive 360 terabytes worth of information for billions of years. Created by scientists at the University of Southampton using femtosecond laser writing, the sliver of fused quartz coin can withstand temperatures up to 157 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). It is an example of 5D optical data storage.

    The research team from the University’s Optoelectronics Research Center first experimentally tested the technology in 2013. The final iteration encodes files in five dimensions (size, orientation + 3 dimensional position of nanostructures), writing with ultrafast, intense pulses of light.

    The team selected major documents from the pantheon of human history including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Newton’s Opticks, Magna Carta, and Kings James Bible to be digitally stored for up to 13.8 billion years, which happens to be the approximate current age of the universe.

    With this technology, the human race is now capable of storing the entirety of its history in perpetuity.

  • ‘Compact & durable’: Scientists encode, retrieve 10,000 gigabytes stored on DNA molecules
    Researchers at the University of Washington and Microsoft are developing one of the first complete storage systems to house digital data in DNA. The news comes as the digital universe is expected to hit 44 trillion gigabytes by 2020.

    “Life has produced this fantastic molecule called DNA that efficiently stores all kinds of information about your genes and how a living system works. It’s very, very compact and very durable,” said co-author Luis Ceze, UW associate professor of computer science and engineering, in a press release.

    We’re essentially repurposing it to store digital data, pictures, videos, documents, in a manageable way for hundreds or thousands of years.”

    The team of bioengineers and computer science and electronic engineers were able to encode data from four image files into the nucleotide sequences of synthetic DNA snippets. This was achieved by converting the long strings of 1’s and 0’s in digital data into the four building blocks of the DNA sequence – adenine, guanine, cytosine and tymine. The synthesized DNA molecules were then dehydrated for long-term storage.

    Miraculously, researchers then reversed the process by retrieving the correct sequence from a large pool of DNA and reconstructing the images without losing a single byte of information, according to the University of Washington.

    To make it easier to find the images they had encoded, researchers put the equivalent of zip codes and street addresses into the DNA sequence to facilitate easier retrieval. Researchers also used Huffman coding for lossless data compression, according to Techworm.

  • Scientists reveal brain circuit mechanisms underlying arousal regulation

    Adjusting a specific deep-brain circuit’s firing frequency immediately and dramatically alters rats’ forebrain activity and alertness levels, Stanford University School of Medicine investigators have shown.

    The findings, published online Dec. 10 in eLife, hold direct implications for an increasingly widespread therapeutic approach called deep-brain stimulation. They point to DBS’s potential for restoring consciousness in minimally conscious patients and countering other cases of impaired consciousness. The findings also highlight the importance of determining optimal stimulation frequencies for DBS devices used across a wide range of brain disorders and demonstrate a method for making those determinations.

    The research suggests that a brain structure can be like a radio whose different stations, operating at different frequencies and playing different kinds of music, variously attract or repel different “listening audiences.”

    DBS involves the insertion of an electrical-signaling device into a specific area of the brain. It has provided therapeutic benefits to patients with disorders ranging from Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor to major depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

    “The methods we employed for tracking the circuitry of arousal regulation in the brain can guide DBS research on all of these disorders, and others,” said the study’s senior author, Jin Hyung Lee, PhD, assistant professor of neurology, of neurosurgery and of bioengineering at Stanford. “The brain structures that we showed to be critical in regulating arousal, and the connections between them, are virtually the same in rats and humans, so we have high hopes of seeing our findings, as well as our methods, translated into clinical trials.”

  • Mind-control microscope changes behavior of mice: Scientists say they will soon ‘treat the brain as the keyboard of a piano’

    It looks like mind-control technology is progressing quite nicely.

    Scientists from the University of California, Berkeley have developed a microscope which is able to alter the activity in the brain circuitry of mice.

    The Daily Mail reports:

     In experiments with mice, a team at the University of California, Berkeley, combined cutting edge neurobiology techniques to develop a microscope which is able to zoom in on a relatively small patch of thousands of brain cells and alter their activity using laser light.

    By targeting an area of just a few thousand cells with the tool, they were able to change the electrical signals passed between them, so altering the activity of the animal’s brain circuitry.

    The findings were presented at the Annual Meeting of Experimental Biology in San Diego

    According to Dr. Hillel Adesnik, a UCB neurobiologist who led the research, the microscope technology is paving the way for the brain to one day be controlled like a keyboard to a piano.

    ‘With this new microscope, we believe we will soon be able to treat the brain as the keyboard of a piano, so to speak, and write in a sequence of activity that is needed to understand or correct brain function,’ said Dr. Adesnik.

    Adesnik explained that the microscope ‘may be able to function as a sort of Rosetta Stone to help us crack the neural code.’

    The scientists hope that their approach will help to better understand how the brain’s cellular machinery works and the ‘language’ being used by the cells to communicate, reports the Daily Mail.

    Adesnik went on to explain that, ‘We wanted to develop a technology that can offer a general approach to understand the basic syntax of neural signals, so that we can begin to understand what a given brain circuit is doing and perhaps what’s gone wrong with that in the case of a disease.’

    The mice were prepped with glass windows into their skulls so the light could penetrate into their brains.

    Brain cells were also genetically modified to make them responsive to light.

    The microscope shines two beams of infrared lasers through one of these windows in order to create a 3D holographic pattern within the brain.

    The light-responsive brain cells then alter their electrical signals to any pattern the team choose, using the holographic pattern as a template.

    Initial tests on the mice used the tool to record the activity of cells during small movements, such as moving its whiskers.

  • MKUltra Researcher Put Electrodes in People’s Brains for the US Government (Videos)

    In the mid-1950s, neurophysiologist Carl Wilhelm Sem-Jacobsen built his own EEG lab at Gaustad psychiatric hospital in Norway with copious funding from the Rockefeller, Ford, and other “charitable” foundations. He soon took on multiple US government contracts from the Air Force, the Navy, and NASA for research using electrodes implanted in the brains of psych patients to carry out what many have said was unethical research on them. It is widely believed today that Sem-Jacobsen was really doing his brain research, which continued for years, under the auspices of MKUltra.

    Of particular note is the fact, admitted by the Norwegian government, that Sem-Jacobsen wrote a letter claiming this kind of questionable research would be easier to do in his country because he did not have to worry about lawsuits or patient consent like doctors in America do.

    Still, the real question is, what exactly was the goal of Sem-Jacobsen’s brain research for the US government?

Moral Abdication

  • In Pilate’s Footsteps: Congress Washes Its Hands of Responsibility for Wars

    US congressmen “love war,” why then they don’t like to have to vote for it, former US Republican congressman Ron Paul and political analyst Daniel McAdams ask in their latest Ron Paul Liberty Report.

    “Congress perpetuates a willful misunderstanding of the role of the President in times of war. How many times you hear them saying ‘the President is the Commander in Chief’. But they fail to point out to the American people that Congress is the authorizing body and the President is not the Commander in Chief until there is a declaration of war. So, I think they purposely conflate that because they don’t want to take responsibilities for these wars,” Daniel McAdams, the Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, underscored.

    “When you vote for a war you are on record having supported it,” McAdams stressed.

    Therefore, US congressmen, like biblical Pilate, are habitually washing their hands of the responsibility for authorizing military actions.By shirking its Constitutional obligations Congress is paving the way for general policy recklessness, the experts warned.

Rolling Up The ‘Panama Papers’

  • Mossack Fonseca: The Nazi, CIA And Nevada Connections… And Why It’s Now Rothschild’s Turn

    For all the media excitement about the disclosed names in the “Panama Papers” leak, in this case represented by the extensive list of Mossack Fonseca clients, this is not a story about which super wealthy individuals did everything in their power, both legal and illegal, to avoid taxes, preserve their financial anonymity, and generally preserve their wealth. After all, that’s what they do, and it should not come as a surprise that they will always do that, especially following last year’s disclosure by the same ICIJ which revealed a list of 100,000 HSBC clients who had been dutifully avoiding the payment of taxes.

    What the story is about is the nebulous world of offshore tax evasion and tax havens, which based on data from the World Bank, IMF, UN, and central banks, hide between $21 and $32 trillion, where registered incorporation agents and law firms in small Caribbean countries (and not so small US states) make the laundering of money and the “disappearance” of the super wealthy, into untracable numbers hidden behind shell companies, possible.

    So, in order to learn some more about the real star of this story, the Panamanian lawfirm of Mossack Fonseca, we went to Fusion which has compiled a fascinating story of the company’s history, founders, and key milestone events in its life.

  • WikiLeaks: USAID & Soros targeting Putin, Panama Papers should be released in full

    On Wednesday, the international whistleblowing organization said on Twitter that the Panama Papers data leak was produced by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), “which targets Russia and [the] former USSR.” The “Putin attack” was funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and American hedge fund billionaire George Soros, WikiLeaks added, saying that the US government’s funding of such an attack is a serious blow to its integrity.

    Organizations belonging to Soros have been proclaimed to be “undesirable” in Russia. Last year, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office recognized Soros’s Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation as undesirable groups, banning Russian citizens and organizations from participation in any of their projects. Prosecutors then said the activities of the institute and its assistance foundation were a threat to the basis of Russia’s constitutional order and national security. Earlier this year, the billionaire US investor alleged that Putin is “no ally” to US and EU leaders, and that he aims “to gain considerable economic benefits from dividing Europe.”
    The US OCCRP can do good work, but for the US govt to directly fund the #PanamaPapers attack on Putin seriously undermines its integrity.
    — WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) April 5, 2016
    “The American government is pursuing a policy of destabilization all over the world, and this [leak] also serves this purpose of destabilization. They are causing a lot of people all over the world and also a lot of money to find its way into the [new] tax havens in America. The US is preparing for a super big financial crisis, and they want all that money in their own vaults and not in the vaults of other countries,” German journalist and author Ernst Wolff says. Earlier this week, the head of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), which worked on the Panama Papers, said that Putin is not the target of the leak, but rather that the revelations aimed to shed light on murky offshore practices internationally. “It wasn’t a story about Russia. It was a story about the offshore world,” ICIJ head Gerard Ryle told TASS.
  • George Soros Targeting Putin through the Panama Papers?

    The scandal that has erupted after the publication of the Mossack Fonseca law firm’s so-called “Panama Papers”  was organized by the US Centers for investigations on corruption and organized crime using US government funds and donations from billionaire George Soros, according to “WikiLeaks” – which itself became famous for the dissemination of classified high-profile information.
    Wikileaks tweeted: “#PanamaPapers Putin attack was produced by OCCRP which targets Russia & former USSR and was funded by USAID & Soros.”
    Therefore, the Panama Papers investigations obtained financial support from the Democracy Fund of the United Nations, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and Soros’ Open Society Foundation. USAID is the US administration’s central body for managing aid to government and foreign non-governmental institutions.
    The Panama Papers, so named because they reveal the dealings of one Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca that has allegedly managed billions of dollars’ worth of filtered assets on behalf of the world’s richest and most powerful. Given the whims of defamation law, we stress that people, fabulously wealthy though they may be, have legitimate reasons for using entities such as Mossack Fonseca.
    Therefore, we do not assume that any Mossack Fonseca customer was necessarily breaking any laws. Indeed, forming shell companies does not necessarily prove that anybody has committed a crime. Yet, one of the most obvious aspects of the Papers is that the disclosures largely concern those in disfavor with either Soros or the United States. Not surprisingly Vladimir Putin, whose strategy in Syria has enabled Assad’s forces to erode Islamic State’s stranglehold of Syria, is the most prominent figure.
  • US government, Soros funded Panama Papers to attack Putin – WikiLeaks

    Washington is behind the recently released offshore revelations known as the Panama Papers, WikiLeaks has claimed, saying that the attack was “produced” to target Russia and President Putin.

    On Wednesday, the international whistleblowing organization said on Twitter that the Panama Papers data leak was produced by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), “which targets Russia and [the] former USSR.” The “Putin attack” was funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and American hedge fund billionaire George Soros, WikiLeaks added, saying that the US government’s funding of such an attack is a serious blow to its integrity.

  • A Key Similarity Between Snowden Leak and Panama Papers: Scandal Is What’s Been Legalized

    Yesterday, dozens of newspapers around the world reported on what they are calling the Panama Papers: a gargantuan leak of documents from a Panama-based law firm that specializes in creating offshore shell companies. The documents reveal billions of dollars being funneled to offshore tax havens by leading governmental and corporate officials in numerous countries (the U.S. was oddly missing from the initial reporting, though journalists vow that will change shortly).
    Some of these documents undoubtedly reveal criminality: either monies that were illegally obtained (and are being hidden for that reason) or assets being concealed in order to criminally evade tax debts. But the crux of this activity — placing assets offshore in order to avoid incurring tax liability — has been legalized. That’s because Western democracies, along with overt tyrannies, are typically controlled by societies’ wealthiest, and laws are enacted to serve their interests.  . . .  In such cases, as Jaffer put it, “The deeper scandal is what’s legal, not what’s not.” The key revelation is not the illegality of the specific behavior in question but rather the light shined on how our political systems function and for whose benefit they work. That was true of the Snowden leak, and it’s true of the Panama Papers as well.

  • Days After Iceland’s PM Resigns Over “Panama Papers”, Its Bankers Are Released From Jail Years Early

    How very ironic.

    Over the weekend, just hours before the Panama Papers were released, we wrote a post that took “A Look Inside Iceland’s Kviabryggja Prison: The One Place Where Criminal Bankers Face Consequences.”

    And then, minutes later, the Panama Papers were disclosed by the ICIJ, which had a clear target: to “expose” the “circle of friends close to Putin”, and of course, to reveal the dirty laundry of the Iceland Prime Minister, who resigned just two days after his shady offshore tax dealing were revealed to the world.

    There was some “conspiratorial” speculation whether the explicit hit on ex-PM Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson was precisely due to Iceland’s crackdown on the country’s criminal bankers. As a reminder, Iceland is the only nation that sent bankers found guilty of crimes resulting from the financial crisis, to prison.

    It turns out there may have been something valid in said speculation, because moments ago, Iceland Monitor reported that three bankers from the defunct Iceland bank Kaupthing are to be released from jail today – after serving just one year of their 5-year sentences.

Mobacious Response

  • Imputaron a Cristina Kirchner por lavado de dinero
    La declaración de Leonardo Fariña en la causa de “La Ruta del Dinero K”, regida la figura de “arrepentido”, generó ayer una consecuencia judicial de alto impacto político. Los datos que aportó el ex valijero en la primera etapa de su presentación en los tribunales fueron de tal magnitud y con tanto nivel de detalle, que el fiscal del caso, Guillermo Marijuán, tomó la decisión de redactar un requirimiento para iniciar un nuevo proceso en el que incluyó en calidad de imputada a la ex presidenta Cristina Fernández de Kirchner; al ex ministro de Planificación Federal, Julio De Vido; y a un personaje central de la arquitectura financiera de los Kirchhner, el financista Ernesto Clarens, quien trabajó en las redes societarias de la economía de Néstor Kirchner y su familia, y también en la del acusado de ser su testaferro, el empresario Lázaro Báez. En el requerimiento también se incluyeron a otras personas, de las que no trascendieron, por ahora, sus nombres.
    La información fue confirmada a Clarín por fuentes que están al tanto de esta novedad judicial.

  • PANAMA PAPERS: A Bogus Sting Operation To Smear Putin And Assad

    Yes,  Mossack Fonseca Served As The Nexus For An International Organized Crime Ring …
    … But where are all the well-known criminals from the Western Criminal Banking Cartel?
    Conveniently missing, it appears

    If ever there was a transparently fake sting operation to tarnish President Putin’s reputation, the “Panama Papers” is it.
    Everything about this CIA-directed black operation was designed to damage Putin however they can make stuff up about him, with no evidence whatsoever.  Just ridiculous innuendo and idle speculation, and planted rumors and baseless hearsay.

The British press is always employed whenever it comes to conducting classic hit pieces on the Russian Federation and especially on President Putin. They are always armed to the teeth when it comes to taking down ole Vlad.  They just can’t get enough of his hide, can they?!

     

  • President Obama Uses Panama Papers to Condemn Government Corruption Demand More Power for Government

    Today, President Obama addressed the Panama Papers issue not by saying the U.S. would, say, re-examine its foreign aid spending to ensure U.S. dollars aren’t fueling corruption abroad, but by using it as an excuse to call on Congress to pass laws to prevent Americans from moving their money out of the country as freely as they can now. He should call Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, who has also railed against “inversions” as if money that Americans earn actually belongs to the U.S. government, and who has some novel ideas about limiting the outflow of money (specifically to Mexico) that maybe the president could build on.

    Great Britain, too, has used the Panama Papers leak to push for more taxation authority. The billions in assets held by former government officials overseas represents how lucrative working in government and the power government has to take people’s money can be. The use of this example of public corruption to demand government get even more power to confiscate people’s assets and corrupt itself is beyond shameless, but, tragically, totally predictable.

     

  • Here Is Rothschild’s Primer How To Launder Money In U.S. Real Estate And Avoid “Blacklists”

    Anyone closely following the Panama Papers tax haven story, is by now familiar with the role that Rothschild plays in providing virtually identical services right inside the US by the Rothschild Trust, as explained in our recent article “Rothschild Humiliates Obama, Reveals That “America Is The Biggest Tax Haven In The World.”

    They are also probably familiar with the name Andrew Penney profiled in January by Bloomberg as follows:

     Rothschild, the centuries-old European financial institution, has opened a trust company in Reno, Nev., a few blocks from the Harrah’s and Eldorado casinos. It is now moving the fortunes of wealthy foreign clients out of offshore havens such as Bermuda, subject to the new international disclosure requirements, and into Rothschild-run trusts in Nevada, which are exempt.

    * * *

    For financial advisers, the current state of play is simply a good business opportunity. In a draft of his San Francisco presentation, Rothschild’s Penney wrote that the U.S. “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world.” The U.S., he added in language later excised from his prepared remarks, lacks “the resources to enforce foreign tax laws and has little appetite to do so.”

    So for all those now former Mossack Fonseca clients, or their “Panamanian” peers who have not been rooted out yet, or for anyone else who wishes to open a domestic “trust”, here is the primer straight from Rothschild Trust.

    Key highlights:

    • In the year since we opened Rothschild Trust North America in Reno, Nevada, we have discovered the versatility of Nevada trusts and their usefulness within the context of our international business.
    • Rothschild Trust has long embraced clients with US connections and the complexity this brings to planning. Our new US offering has enabled us to offer creative solutions not only to anticipated situations, but also to unusual or complex scenarios that require bespoke structures.
    • In our experience, Nevada trusts can be useful planning tools not only for onshore or first generation American families, but also for  foreign offshore families looking to invest in the US.
    • Such structures maintain privacy and block US estate tax liability, but are subject to two layers of income tax (at both the corporate and shareholder level) as well as high levels of both income and capital gains tax, making them inefficient for appreciating or income-generating property.

    Worried about FATCA exposure abroad? Just use Rothschild domestically:

    • In the build-up to FATCA implementation, some US clients who had assets in offshore trusts for historic reasons have decided to domesticate these structures to lower the burden of reporting. These domestications form part of the general trend we have seen towards moving structures onshore.
    • The US, and Nevada in particular with its favourable trust laws and attractive state tax regime, offers a variety of planning opportunities that can achieve complex planning aims with simplified reporting obligations and compliance concerns.

    Here Rothschild explains to foreigners how to launder money using U.S. real estate:

    • The foreign company contributes its shares to the US LLC and then liquidates, and the US corporate subsidiary it owns elects to be treated as a qualifying sub-chapter “S” subsidiary. The end result is a single layer of US income tax and reduced rates on income and capital gains tax, though in the case of property that has appreciated greatly in value – such as, for example, prime New York condominiums – there can be a significant tax cost to the liquidation.
    • We have recently seen the usefulness of “foreign” Nevada trusts for offshore foreign investors in US real estate. The appointment of a foreign protector to a trust that would otherwise qualify as a US domestic trust causes the trust to fail the “control” prong of the US court and control test for trust situs, and therefore prevents the trust from qualifying as tax-resident for US federal income tax.
    • Generally, this type of structure is useful for foreign offshore investors in US real estate (or other US situate assets) who do not wish to file US tax returns in their own name and who, having no personal US nexus, would like to minimize the amount of US tax payable on the investments

    This, of course, would not be possible if the National Association of Realtors was not complicit. Which it is, as we have covered since 2012:

    Many of you reading this will undoubtedly have spent time in an international bank and been forced to sit through countless hours of “know your client” and AML training. Fascinating to note that the National Association of Realtors lobbied for and received a waiver from such regulation. That’s right, realtors actually went to the U.S. government and said: we want to be able to help foreign business oligarchs and other nefarious business people launder money through the real estate markets of the United States – and prevailed.

    Here’s their official position:

    “NAR supports continued efforts to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism through the regulation of entities using a risk-based analysis. Any risk-based assessment would likely find very little risk of money laundering involving real estate agents or brokers. Regulations that would require real estate agents and brokers to adopt anti-money laundering programs may prove to be burdensome and unnecessary given the existing ML/TF regulations that already apply to United States financial institutions.”

    So far, regulations that prevent foreigners from laundering money in the US have indeed proven “burdenseome.” The result: record high luxury real estate prices which is now used by foreign oligarchs and money launderers as the modern day “Swiss bank account”, and which make this particular sector of US housing accessible only to other foreigners.

    If you are still not convinced to use Rothschild, here is one more reason: to avoid a “blacklists” – after all, everyone is anonymous:

    • Nevada “foreign” trusts may also prove attractive to settlors from politically sensitive countries who are grappling with blacklists and strict CFC regulations as they seek to structure their assets.

    And here is where Rothschild comes as close as it possibly could to putting that US-based tax havens are used for tax evasion:

     The use of Nevada “foreign” trusts avoids blacklists and the stigma that can come with placing assets in jurisdictions typically viewed as tax havens, without creating exposure to US income tax on non-US income. As more countries adopt blacklists, strict CFC regimes and other measures designed to shut-down perceived tax havens, the flexibility and higher degree of certainty afforded by US trusts may become increasingly attractive.

    The question, then, is why does the US not adopt such a regime which makes money laundering impossible for both foreigners and in more limited instances, residents?

     

  • Rothschild/Crown Finger Prints On Panama Papers

    While the corporate media has used the information to attack political enemies of the Rothschild-led international banking cartel such as Russian President Vladimir Putin, deceased Libyan leader Mohamar Qaddafi (neither of whom are even mentioned in the Papers), Chinese President Xi Jinping and bankster-jailing Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur Davio Gunnlaugsson, the more interesting clientele have naturally flown below Pressitute radar.

    These include Pakistan President Nawaz Sharif, Saudi King Salman, United Arab Emirates (UAE) & Abu Dhabi President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, former Emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, and both acting and former prime ministers of Iraq, Moldova, Georgia, Ukraine, Jordan, Qatar – all of whom are puppets of the Rothschild-led City of London banksters.

    The late father of British Prime Minister David Cameron was also listed.

    Panama has historically been well-utilized by the international bankers and their Western intelligence gendarmes as a nexus where guns, drugs and oil money are washed into fresh greenbacks. The Israeli Mossad (rhymes with Mossack) has a large presence in this cesspool while the US dollar is quite conveniently the currency of Panama.

    Mossack Fonseca was launched in 1986 by London School of Economics graduate Ramon Fonseca and German-born Jurgen Mossack, who also spent time working in London’s banking circles.

    Mossack’s father was a member of Hitler’s Waffen-SS who fled to Panama, where he later offered to spy on Cuba for the CIA. Until very recently Fonseca had been a top advisor to Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela.

    Mossack served on Conarex – the Panama branch of the Crown-controlled Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIF) from 2009-2014. The US branch is the Council on Foreign Relations. https://hendersonlefthook.wordpress.com/2014/11/11/the-council-on-foreign-relations/.

    Both are members of the fair-skinned Panamanian elite which have historically served British Crown/Rothschild interests.

    The conspicuous presence of Gulf monarchs and Ukrainian fascists in The Panama Papers is only upstaged by the yet more interesting names of the top ten intermediary banks which Mossack Fonseca worked through to set up these shadow offshore accounts.

    The ten banks which facilitated this criminal network are as follows:

    The government hopes to increase the number of foreign tourists by using the system to prevent crime and relieve users from the necessity of carrying cash or credit cards. It aims to realize the system by the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.

    The experiment will have inbound tourists register their fingerprints and other data, such as credit card information, at airports and elsewhere.

    Tourists would then be able to conduct tax exemption procedures and make purchases after verifying their identities by placing two fingers on special devices installed at stores.

    The Inns and Hotels Law requires foreign tourists to show their passports when they check into ryokan inns or hotels.

    The government plans to substitute fingerprint authentication for that requirement.

    A total of 300 souvenir shops, restaurants, hotels and other establishments will participate in the experiment. They are located in areas that are popular among foreign tourists such as Hakone, Kamakura, Yugawara in Kanagawa Prefecture, and Atami in Shizuoka Prefecture.

    The government plans to gradually expand the experiment by next spring, to cover areas including tourist sites in the Tohoku region and urban districts in Nagoya.

    It hopes to realize the system throughout the country, including Tokyo, by 2020.

    Introducing the system is part of the government’s efforts to increase the annual number of foreign tourists to 40 million by 2020.

    It is also aiming to demonstrate the country’s advanced technology by having tourists use the system when they visit Japan for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

    Data concerning how and where foreign tourists use the system will be managed by a consultative body led by the government, after the data is converted to anonymous big data.

    After analyzing tourists’ movements and their spending habits, the data is expected to be utilized to devise policies on tourism and management strategies for the tourism industry.

    However, there are concerns that tourists will be uneasy about providing personal information such as fingerprints.
