Foreign Office denies state funds went to Twitter account attacking Labour

£2m for Scottish firm to counter Russian propaganda did not go towards its social media, says Alan DuncanThe Foreign Office minister Alan Duncan has denied that any of the £2m of government funding given to a Scottish-based company meant to counter online Russian propaganda went towards the company’s Twitter account which also spread unfavourable views about Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party.On Monday, Duncan had promised an investigation into the use of government funds by the Integrity Initiative, a project run by the Fife-based Institute for Statecraft, after the Sunday Mail revealed its Twitter account had been used to attack Labour.

Как Запад борется с "российской дезинформацией"?

По неизвестной редакции причине в российское информационное пространство пока не прорвалась широко обсуждаемая на европейских интернет-ресурсах информация хакерской группировки «Anonymous», которая еще в начале ноября опубликовала большой объем британских секретных документов о беспрецедентной по своим масштабам спецоперации английских спецслужб. Так как объем и значимость документов действительно впечатляет, редакция считает себя обязанной ознакомить с ними российского читателя, планомерно осуществляя перевод и анализ информации «Anonymous».

Relentless Totalitarianism Toward What Ends? Depopulation & Global Rule

Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces) via SHTFplan.com, We’re going to open up this article with a summary of some things that have happened just in the past week, with sources attributed where applicable or necessary: As of November 23, 2018, it was reported in an article by Guns in the News entitled “Red-Flag laws only lead to gun confiscation,” that 46 gun grabs by red-flag laws have occurred in Oregon, and another 36 in Maryland with 114 requests for the grabs being filed in the courts in the latter state. The New York Times’ Liz Alderman reported on 11/21/18 that 4,000+ Swedes have accepted microchips to eliminate the use of cash (erroneously believing the desire to do so is theirs). The article is entitled “Sweden’s Push to Get Rid of Cash Has Some Saying, ‘Not So Fast’.” Later on, the article mentions Christine Lagarde, the woman who heads the IMF (International Monetary Fund) as stating that digital currency needs to be investigated further. If she is involved in it, and the IMF? You had better run for cover. Half of Sweden’s banks no longer accept cash deposits, and the article leads off with a photo of a couple of “soy boys” (Ragnar Lodbruk must be turning over in his grave) in a cafe that accepts no cash. An article by Strange Sounds from 11/20/18 is entitled “Is the government concealing California’s wildfire death toll?” The depth to this one comes not only in the form of potentially-concealed numbers, but in this excerpt, with the “kicker” parts emboldened: According to our sources, an anonymous White House official and a pair of California firefighters, the Trump administration and CAL Fire are acting in collusion, underreporting a catastrophic death toll because “they don’t want people to freak out and panic,” said our White House source. He said CAL Fire has found the charred remains of 480 people, and that number increases hourly. “It was FEMA Director Brock Long’s idea. He told [President] Trump that Americans can’t handle another mass casualty event after the recent string of mass shootings. His idea is to slowly release the number of fatalities, one here and one there, to soften the impact. Eventually, maybe in a year or two, they’ll admit all the missing people died in the fire. By that time, though, everyone’s mind will be occupied with other events, and no one will remember what happened in California in November 2018,” our source said. Just look at these three items: Bypassing the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution domestically to grab the guns...starting to set a precedence that will be followed throughout the nation; the slow death of cash and the dull, vapid acceptance of microchips by those who will both “manage” their funds, and keep track of them; the cover-up by government of what is really happening in the California wildfires. Oh, it doesn’t stop. End of the American Dream reported on 11/22/18 that “Authorities are using a “mysterious new tool” that can unlock virtually any cellphone.” Yeah, isn’t that great? Enjoy your Thanksgiving Dinner…and the Government is your “extra guest” at the table via the stupid phone. But the biggest one of all is one that did not receive either much coverage or notice by anyone. Lourdes military base close to Havana, Cuba may be reopened shortly by Russia, and there’s talk that the Russians are going to bring nuclear missiles to Cuba to offset the deployment of American missiles in the former Soviet-bloc countries of Eastern Europe, such as Moldavia, Romania, and Poland. These items surfaced after the Cubans and Russians had a meeting a week ago, and numerous articles covering this surfaced on or about 11/19/18. One of them was reported by The Trumpet, that you can read here: Is Russia Reopening a Soviet Military Base in Cuba? In the meanwhile, we have yet to see what will develop from the tens of thousands of foreign aliens approaching our Southern border. We know that the President has authorized the use of lethal force against them if they attempt to enter. This is good: it is not a “humanitarian exodus of refugees,” to the tune of the mid ‘80’s “Caravan of Love.” If they attempt to enter, it is an invasion, pure and simple. They won’t be alone:  if you think they will not find “5th columnists” right here in the Southwest United States, you’re sorely mistaken. A potential lock-down of the border is looming. All of these actions outlined in this piece are a part of the Globalists’ plans for Global Rule. War has always been a preferred method for gaining control: it boosts the economy via the Military Industrial Complex, and reduces the population all in one fell swoop. In this day and age, however, it is the assets that are the main concern: the ability to kill off the populations and then swoop in akin to vultures to pick up the pieces. Sound farfetched? Here are a few direct quotes for you that you can find under “22 Shocking Population Control Quotes from the Global Elite that will make you want to lose your lunch,” worth noting: “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” –  Bill Gates “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Ted Turner “We must speak more clearly about sexuality, contraception, about abortion, about values that control population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.” –  Mikhail Gorbachev “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” – #1 item of “The new 10 Commandments,” the Georgia Guidestones These people are serious, and the best way to do it would be with a virus. They will eventually use nuclear war, an EMP, or a virus to do the trick. The last one would be the most convenient, as well as leave valuable property and resources undamaged. Look closely around the country: they reactivated Mt. Weather, and refurbished Cheyenne Mountain.  Denver International Airport has plenty of “subterranean surprises” for any who do their homework, complete with interconnecting tunnels. All of those (Mis)representatives: Pelosi, Swalwell, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul….Ocasio Cortez (yeah, picture her, now)…these will all be taken underground and kept alive no matter what the catastrophic event…with supplies, medical care, and an army of guards….all on our dime. I’m going to close with this quoted speech/dialogue from the film, “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” that ties into everything we’ve discussed. I watched it for the first time the other day on recommendation from someone who told me that it really makes a lot of sense. It does make sense. The film was released in 2016, and this speech by the character Dr. Isaacs covers the mindset and actions of the Globalists plans, and is applicable. Here you go, and it ran (if you want to watch it) from 54:06 to 55:55 on the film: Dr. Isaacs:  “We’re here today not just to talk about the future of this company. We’re here to talk about its destiny. We’re here to talk about the end of the world. “We stand on the brink of Armageddon.  Diseases for which we have no cure. Fundamentalist states who call for our destruction. Nuclear powers over which we have no control. And even if we navigate these dangerous waters, we face other, even more inevitable threats. Global warming will melt the polar ice caps within 80 years, flooding 90% of all habitable areas on Earth.  Unchecked population growth will overtake food production in less than 50 years, leading to famine and war. This is not conjecture. This is fact. One way or another, our world is coming to an end.” Woman of the Corporation:  “What do you propose?” Dr. Isaacs:  I propose that we end the world, but on our terms. An orchestrated apocalypse, one that will cleanse the Earth of its population, but leave its infrastructure and resources intact. It’s been done once before…[he taps the Bible]…with great success. The chosen few will ride out the storm, not in an Ark, as in the book of Genesis, but in safety, underground. And when it’s over, we will emerge onto a cleansed Earth, one that we can then reboot in our image.” Woman:  “And just how do you intend to achieve this?” Dr. Isaacs:  “The means of our salvation are already at hand. I give to you…the T-virus.” Do you think that any of this can’t happen? Think again. We are on the precipice of a world catastrophe by our own making, and the slightest push in any area can cause the inevitable (and perhaps irreparable) plunge into destruction, followed by centuries or even millenia of decay, darkness, and barbarism. Be alert, be aware, and be resolved to hold onto that flame that is within your heart. Prepare, train, study, and most importantly, pray…before the moment arrives.

Cabinet 'Alliance' Working On Secret Plan For 'Super Norway' Brexit Alternative: Telegraph

With Theresa May out of town for the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, eight of May's senior cabinet ministers are reportedly working behind her back to undermine her draft deal, or at the very least hammer out an alternative proposal that they can bring to the EU once the current plan - which at least 100 members of her party have said they would oppose - is inevitably voted down. According to the Telegraph, the talks are focusing on a forging a Norway-style "plan B" if the Prime Minister's deal is voted down. This follows reports from earlier in the week that an "alliance of Tory cabinet members and EU ministers are secretly working behind the scenes to prepare a back up plan. With the deal's future in doubt, a growing number of Tories have taken to endorsing what they have called the "Super Norway" plan (for more detail and context, see our latest Brexit guide). A cross-Brexit alliance of ministers - equivalent to almost a third of the Cabinet - has held discussions about joining the European Free Trade Association amid concern there is "zero chance" of the Prime Minister's deal surviving. Last week four ministers - Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary, Michael Gove, the Environment Secretary, Geoffrey Cox, the Attorney General and Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary - were briefed on the plans. Amber Rudd, the Work and Pensions Secretary, Philip Hammond, the Chancellor, Greg Clark, the Business Secretary, David Gauke, the Justice Secretary, have also privately expressed support for Norway. While EU officials like European Council President Donald Tusk and Commission President Jean Claude Juncker have insisted that the current deal is the only option and that negotiations will not be reopened, at the end of the day, the Europeans don't have as much leverage as they would like because as we pointed out this week, while a 'no deal' Brexit would be 'bad' for the UK, it would be catastrophic for the EU. This unassailable fact is perhaps the only clear theme that has emerged from the chaotic negotiations of the past three months. Adding to the secret plan's chances of survival, it reportedly has the backing of Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis, who has privately expressed his support. The first stirrings of the plan emerged a few weeks ago after Theresa May's first tumultuous week of trying to sell the draft deal nearly ended in a 'no confidence' vote. At the time, several of her key cabinet ministers agreed to stay on, reportedly so they could work on winning a better deal from the inside. As a reminder, here's what a 'Super Norway' trade agreement might look like (courtesy of Capital Economics): Over this past week, anonymously sourced media reports have claimed that May is considering holding a "meaningful vote", which would allow MPs to propose amendments to her plan, then vote on which amendments they'd like to keep. In another example of the irony that has at times characterized the political farce that is the Brexit talks, Theresa May opposes "Super Norway" because she feels it wouldn't end free movement of people, and hence wouldn't fulfill the popular mandate delivered in the June 2016 Brexit vote. And so the prime minister who has so often been accused of being a closet remainer is now insisting that tight immigration controls be part of any final deal. Speaking to reporters on the flight to Buenos Aires, she said: "At the beginning of the negotiations with the EU, there were two options on the table, one was Norway and one was a Canada-style free trade agreement." "The EU said there was nothing else available, but what you see in the [Brexit deal] is…a more ambitious free trade agreement than Canada, that ends free movement which Norway doesn’t do. So this is the deal that is right for the UK." But there's one factor of the Norway plan that May, nor the EU, would be able to argue with: The fact that it enjoys broad support not just among the Tories, but from Labour rebels, the DUP and the SNP. However Cabinet ministers backing the Norway option believe it can win the support of more than 70 Labour rebels, the DUP and even the SNP. "It's the only realistic alternative," one minister said. "This is about coalescing around something that will avoid a no-deal Brexit. Mr Hammond earlier this week refused to rule out the Norway option." Asked about whether the Government has a "plan B", he said: "We will be in uncharted political territory. We will then have to sit down as a government and decide where to go on the basis of the vote." Asked about a Norway-style deal, Mr Hammond did not rule it out: ‘We will have to look at the decision Parliament has made and consider what is the best way to proceed." Under the Norway scenario the UK would retain access to the Single Market after Brexit but be forced to accept continued free movement. The Prime Minister has been clear that this represents a red line for her. But as Deutsche Bank pointed out earlier this month, negotiations involving the EU often go down to the wire. At this point, both May and Michel Barnier, the EU's lead negotiator, know the deal, as it stands, will never work. Which reinforces our other major point about Brexit: That everything that happens between now and the day the deal is finally passed and accepted by the EU is pure political theater.

Saudi Facing OPEC Mutiny As Members Object To "Problematic" US Influence

As US stocks seesaw with every conflicting trade-war related headline, investors are fixating on tomorrow night's dinner meeting between President Trump and President Xi with laser-like focus. But the Trump-Xi summit isn't the only meeting that could have broad repercussions for global markets, and though it has received much less attention in the press, the planned meetings between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (along with the Russian and Saudi energy ministers) could dictate the course of global oil prices for the foreseeable future. Looming over the Saudi-Russia talks are suspicions that Saudi Arabia has been accelerating production of oil beyond the cuts adopted by OPEC+ in November 2016 to placate President Trump - a conspiracy "theory" first highlighted by Zero Hedge weeks ago, which has finally won acknowledgment in the pages of the Wall Street Journal and other mainstream press. But while Saudi and Russia are equipped to weather lower-for-longer oil prices (Putin has said he's "absolutely fine" with oil at $60 a barrel), especially if it means they don't cede market share to the booming US shale industry, other OPEC members have been frustrated by the bilateral agreement to raise output through the end of the year. And during a meeting of OPEC producers and their non-member allies next week, it appears these other members might present their de facto leader with an ultimatum: Cut production - now - or risk a mutiny. At least that's what a report published in the Wall Street Journal Friday morning would suggest. Two days after Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih insisted that Saudi Arabia wouldn't cut production if it meant going it alone, the WSJ reported that Iran and other oil producers are preparing to confront Saudi Arabia next week and demand that it bear the brunt of oil production cuts. Since the Saudis have ramped up production by 1 million barrels a day since the summer, OPEC reasons that they should bear the brunt of the expected 1.4 million barrels a day that they're hoping to trim from the cartel's collective production. "The Saudis made this mess - they need to clean it up," one anonymous OPEC official reportedly told WSJ. Even as the Saudis and Russia helped boost crude prices by raising the possibility of a tandem production cut, other OPEC members worry that the Kingdom won't be able to undo the pain of its production ramp so easily. Given that it's now pumping more than 11 million barrels a day, analysts are skeptical about whether a 500,000 bbl/day cut would make a difference. But questions of supply and demand, while important, distract from a bigger issue: That other OPEC members are deeply uncomfortable with the perceived US influence over the cartel's de facto leader. Cartel members described Saudi Arabia's perceived deference to the US as "problematic." OPEC officials say the Saudis’ decision to keep pumping at full tilt is the result of pressure from the U.S., which has threatened to retaliate over the killing of dissident Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi operatives. While President Trump said this week he wanted to keep a strategic alliance with the kingdom, the U.S. government and Congress have been looking at possible sanctions against Saudi Arabia, including legislation that would make membership of OPEC an antitrust violation. An African OPEC delegate said the Saudis’ role as the cartel’s kingpin is problematic "because they follow instructions from the U.S." An Iranian oil official said “whether they cut or not, the decision should be made in OPEC, not in the White House.” Over the past few years, OPEC members have set aside their individual differences and worked with outsiders like Russia to rescue crude prices from their 2014-2015 collapse. But with this accomplishment fading from view, the notion that resentments about perceived US influence could lead to the dissolution of the cartel are ironic. After all, the breakup of OPEC would only cede more influence to the US.

Греческий кластер

Хакеры из "Анонимус" продолжают вываливать документ по организованной Британскими спецслужбами сети антироссийского влияния в странах Евросоюза. Из интересного: - Никос, ранее преданный, начал писать статьи, которые очень помогают Сиризе, описывая их теперь как дружественную к ЕС социал-демократическую партию. Это глубоко неверно и очень условно. В Греции хорошо известно, что Сириза близка к Кремлю. Его внезапный поворот, чтобы поддерживать партию, которая организовала его избиение, ставит перед нами очень серьезные вопросы. Сисси и Элиас были очень тверды говоря, что они не хотят встречаться с ним, и мы не должны приглашать других на встречу с ним. Было рекомендовано, чтобы мы встречались с ним отдельно. 1. Красной нитью через документы проходят обвинения партии Сириза в связях с Кремлем. Как открытых, так и тайных, которые скрывают от Запада.2. Указывается на проведение работы с российским информационным и политическим влиянием в Греции через "донесение правдивой информации", "борьбы с российскими fake-news", поддержку "евроориентированных политиков" и т.п. инструментарий информационно-политического влияния.3. Греция ведет себя недостаточно жестко в отношении России, даже в случае с высылкой российских дипломатов в связи с дипломатическим кризисов вокруг переименования Македонии, когда Греция обвинила Россию в попытках повлиять на межгосударственные отношения Греции и Македонии. По мнению функционеров ИИ, Греция не заинтересована в эскалации этого конфликта и ее реакция оказалась слабее, нежели ожидалось.4. США проводят активную политику давления для обеспечения прочного укоренения Греции в "западном лагере", пытаясь использовать для этого и текущее сближение России и Турции, стремясь попутно создать предпосылки для того, чтобы использовать Грецию для подрыва российских экономических проектов в Восточном Средиземноморье и на Балканах.5. С 19 по 25 ноября 2018 года в Греции была организована "неделя информационной грамотности", где греков учили отличать "правильные новости" от "неправильных", Основная цель комплекса мероприятий на разных площадках "научить греческих читателей правильным интерпретациям".6. Один из агентов влияния подчеркивает, что часть греческого правительства тайно желает укрепления экономических и политических связей с Китаем и Россией, но напрямую обвинять правительство в этом нельзя, так как не хватает фактических доказательств этих намерений, поэтому разоблачать эту линию поведения надо более осторожно, через кампанию информационного влияния и прозападных политиков.7. Подчеркивается, что наиболее сильно российское влияние проявляется в культурной, образовательной и религиозной сферах, куда на февраль 2017 года еще не удалось распространить влияние сети ИИ. Сетуют, что в греческой образовательной среде слишком много левых, которые догматично относятся к намерениям Запада. 8. Греческие журналисты работающие в оборонной сфере называются "самыми коррумпированными из всех". При этом 63% всех журналистов Греции - русофилы. Пытаются проводить связь между коррумпированностью журналистов и уровнем российского влияния.9. Россия поступает коварно, когда через свои разведслужбы крадет у Запада секретные данные, потом их публикует и заявляет при этом, что она тут не причем. Высказывается сожаление, что греки неправильно интерпретируют подобные материалы дискредитирующие Запад, потому что с точки зрения Запада надо делать акцент не на содержании материалов, а на том, зачем это делает Россия, а греки этого пока не понимают в силу недостатка "информационной грамотности".10. Общий посыл - надо активно работать как с греческим населением, дабы показать "истинное лицо России", разоблачать российских агентов влияния в партийных и правительственных кругах, а также в медийных структурах, при этом помогая продвижению лиц, которые преданы идее укоренения Греции в европейском проекте с попутным разрывом тех связей, которые создают опасный потенциал российско-греческого взаимодействия. И т.д. в том же духе. Очень интересные документы а ведь такие наверняка есть (и кое-что наверняка еще выложат) и по другим странам. И эти люди еще что-то вякают про вмешательство России в американские выборы. Если бы нечто подобное всплыло по вмешательству России в дела Британии или США, то shit-шторм бушевал бы несколько месяцев. Ну а джентельменам вполне можно, влезать в дела других государств и учить их "правильным интерпретациям. С выложенными документами на английском языке можно ознакомиться вот здесь ru.scribd.com/user/433220695/Anonymous-Europe/uploads(https://colonelcassad.liv...)

Facebook confirms Sandberg directed staff to research Soros' financial activity

Facebook acknowledged Thursday night that chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg asked staff for information on billionaire George Soros' financial activity, the latest development in the controversy over efforts the company has made to scrutinize and undermine critics.Sandberg "sent an email asking if Mr. Soros had shorted Facebook's stock" while the company was researching the motivations behind the philanthropist's criticisms of Silicon Valley, a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement provided to POLITICO.Facebook earlier this year hired political communications firm Definers Public Affairs, whose work for the social media giant included probing financial ties between Soros and groups critical of Facebook. The company has seen major blowback over Definers' work, which echoes long-standing anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Jewish financiers shaping world events.The New York Times reported Thursday that Sandberg "asked Facebook’s communications staff to research George Soros’s financial interests in the wake of his high-profile attacks on tech companies," citing three anonymous sources. The Times was first to report on Definers' research on Facebook's behalf in an investigation published earlier this month.In Thursday's statement, the spokesperson said Sandberg "never directed research on Freedom from Facebook," one of the main groups Definers sought to undermine.Sandberg met Thursday with another such group, Color of Change, that racial justice organization's president Rashad Robinson told POLITICO. She offered an apology for the Definers situation and pledged to release a public update by year's end on an audit Facebook launched to probe its impact on communities of color, Robinson said.Article originally published on POLITICO Magazine]]>

GoFundMe Page Seeking $920 Million To Replace Malfunctioning New Jersey Bridge

America's crumbling public infrastructure has degenerated to the point that desperate Americans are turning to crowd-funding to try and pitch in - anything to ease the pain of their hellish daily commute. One anonymous resident of the Garden State recently started a GoFundMe page to raise money for replacing the Portal Bridge, the 108-year-old Amtrak-owned railroad bridge over the Hackensack River that is a crucial chokepoint for Jersey commuters traveling to their offices in New York City. The fundraising goal? $920 million. Though the campaign was intended as a tongue-in-cheek joke about the misery of traveling on New Jersey transit - the individual who launched it listed their name as "Sad New Jersey Commuter" from Clifton, NJ - the sentiment clearly resonated with the 200,000 commuters who cross the bridge every day and the post quickly went viral.  As the anonymous author pointed out in their post, New Jersey approved bond financing to start building a replacement for the Portal Bridge earlier this year. Yet, more funding is needed to finish the project. Hence, the crowd-funding drive. The author also joked that they added $20 million in "oversight" funding to create some cushion for when the project inevitably blows through its budget. "We’ve already come up with $600 Million already approved in bond financing in June of 2018, will only require $920,000,000!" the organizer wrote. "Yeah, I added 20 Million in oversight funding, but we are going to totally chew through that in no time, when this goes massively over budget." As Bloomberg pointed out, train traffic over the Portal is often delayed because the bridge swings to clear the way for ships sailing through the river. Sometimes - particularly during the summer - the swing mechanism will malfunction, causing the bridge to get stuck. Crews are then called to hammer it back into place with sledgehammers. The bridge over the Hackensack River between Kearny and Secaucus swings to accommodate maritime traffic. In extreme temperatures, though, it’s prone to closing incorrectly and crews sometimes must smack it into place with sledgehammers. The swing mechanism malfunctioned most recently on Oct. 30, causing 90-minute delays. On Nov. 14, a tugboat bonked into the bridge, forcing back-ups of at least an hour while inspectors checked for damage. A spokesman for the agency tasked with replacing the bridge said its replacement has been designed and approved, and that construction on the project is already underway. When approached by Bloomberg, he welcomed the GoFundMe effort. Steve Sigmund, spokesman for Gateway Development Corp., said the replacement bridge is designed, has regulatory approvals and some construction underway, and a $600 million state funding commitment. “The more 200,000 daily passengers are focused on replacing this 108-year-old, one-track- in, one-track-out system, the better chance we have of getting the most vital transportation infrastructure project in the country done,” Sigmund said in an email. Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for NJ Transit said in an email that "We appreciate the public’s interest in this vital project." Though we doubt the shambolic state of vital American infrastructure (including bridges, highways, railways and roads) will sufficiently move Democrats to cooperate with President Trump on a badly needed infrastructure plan (as the many investigations they have planned will almost certainly be a higher priority). And remember: Amazon is getting billions in tax breaks to build a helipad on top of their Queens headquarters, while the subway sinks into disrepair and the tunnels under the Hudson River have degraded to dangerous levels.

Deutsche Bank Police Raids To Continue On Friday

Update: The fun isn't over for Deutsche Bank (and its weary shareholders). In fact, it might only be just beginning. Commenting to German newspaper Handelsblatt, the Frankfurt prosecutors office said it is investigating DB's role in help clients stash their money in offshore tax shelters while helping launder proceeds from illegal activities without informing German regulators. The wrongdoing that is being investigated allegedly began in 2013 and continued through this year. In a sign that the probe could run much deeper than initially believed, prosecutors said that gathering evidence will likely require them to continue searching DB's offices for a second day on Friday. The investigation, which was inspired by revelations contained within the 'Panama Papers' leak of client records from offshore law firm Mossack Fonseca, is so detailed that it will require searches to continue for a second day. "The investigations relate at least to a period from 2013 to 2018 and have been running since August 2018," said Nadja Niesen, spokeswoman for the Frankfurt public prosecutor's office. A spokesman for DB said the bank believed it had provided authorities with all of the documents they had requested. "We felt that we had provided the authorities with all relevant information about the Panama Papers. Of course, we will cooperate closely with the public prosecutor's office in Frankfurt am Main, because we too are anxious to clarify all suspicions. In recent years, we have always proven that we fully cooperate with the authorities. And we will continue to do so. One outside legal expert quoted by the newspaper said Deutsche's board had failed to properly ensure that the bank had effective compliance controls in place. Michael Hendricks, an attorney and expert in manager liability cases, says he sees the board as an obligation. "It is the foremost task of a board of directors to ensure an effective compliance system. Apparently, this does not work for Deutsche Bank. This is terrifying because the bank is always conspicuous," says Hendricks. The upshot: This is just the beginning of another potentially lengthy legal saga for the bank. * * * Already a melting ice cube struggling with an overbearing derivatives exposure and myriad legal risks, Deutsche Bank has seemingly bounced from one criminal scandal to the next since the crisis, incurring billions of dollars in fines along the way. So it's hardly surprising that the bank's shareholders let out a collective groan Thursday morning when headlines hit that German police had raided the bank's Frankfurt headquarters. WATCH: Police vehicles are present outside Deutsche Bank HQ in Frankfurt amidst raids by prosecutors over money laundering probe (📸: @carolynnlook) pic.twitter.com/BC9dO1yqWp — TicToc by Bloomberg (@tictoc) November 29, 2018 Roughly 170 police officers, tax inspector and prosecutors fanned out across Frankfurt to search a total of 6 DB buildings, according to the BBC, sending the bank's shares lower by 2% to near all-time lows amid renewed fears that DB could face a devastating, potentially bankruptcy-inducing, fine. Germany's public prosecutor has said the raid is connected with the role played by two employees in helping clients set up offshore account to launder money from criminal activities in offshore tax havens. Illegally gotten money may also have been transferred to accounts at DB, which then failed to report the suspicious activity, despite the fact that Germany's banking regulator recently appointed a supervisor to oversee an effort to improve AML controls at the bank. The Frankfurt headquarters of Deutsche Bank have been raided by prosecutors in a money laundering investigation. Germany's public prosecutor alleged that two staff members have helped clients launder money from criminal activities. Police cars were seen outside the tower blocks that house the headquarters of Germany's biggest bank. Other Deutsche offices in the city were searched in an operation involving about 170 police and officials. The raid comes as DB is facing inquiries pertaining to the role its correspondent bank played in facilitating the historic money laundering fraud at Danske bank's tiny Estonian branch. Earlier this month, a whistle blower implicated DB in the scandal and claimed that it helped clear $150 billion of the 'suspicious' $234 billion reportedly filtered through the bank by criminals in the former Soviet Union (and possibly even the family of President Vladimir Putin). Police vehicles are parked in front of Deutsche Bank headquarters as roughly 170 criminal police officers, prosecutors and tax inspectors searched Deutsche Bank officesDB confirmed the raid, said it was connected with the Panama Papers case, and said it's cooperating fully with the probe, according to the Wall Street Journal. According to Bloomberg, the bank said it thought it had turned over all relevant documents to prosecutors. Deutsche Bank in a statement confirmed an investigation involving an unspecified number of the lender’s offices in Germany. The bank’s statement, provided after the searches, added: "The investigation has to do with the Panama Papers case. More details will be communicated as soon as these become known."

Back in August, German banking regulator BaFin demanded that DB improve its regulatory controls. These demands came nearly one year after the bank was fined $700 million for helping wealthy Russians move $700 million out of the country in the now-infamous 'mirror trading' scandal. In 2016 alone, more than 900 clients doing a combined 311 billion euros in business with the bank dealt with an opaque British Virgin Islands based unit of the bank. In total, the bank has racked up some $18 billion in fines since the crisis: Deutsche Bank legal problems DB market cap = about $19.5 billion Fines/disputes since 08 = $18 billion — Jonathan Ferro (@FerroTV) November 29, 2018 DB's new CEO Christian Sewing has only been running the bank for a few months. But as we noted earlier this week, he's already making moves to change up the senior management, as we reported earlier this week. Among a raft of executives expected to depart the bank was Deutsche's Chief Regulatory Officer Sylvie Matherat, who reportedly had expressed concerns about the bank's inadequate controls against financial crime. Matherat has told associates she might need to prepare to leave the bank, and has expressed unhappiness with what she described to some associates as constraints to improving financial-crime controls and mending Deutsche Bank’s relationships with regulators, some of the people say. Matherat, who joined the bank three years ago, was reportedly facing pressure from Sewing over her ability to improve processes for detecting and preventing money laundering and other violations through the division she supervises. But the reality is that DB's criminal problems started long before her tenure, and expecting the bank's deeply ingrained "ethical" problems to be fixed in one generation of management is simply ridiculous (meanwhile, investment-bank head Garth Ritchie is reportedly on his way out over "performance concerns".) In an interview last year, Matherat described the monumental task of revamping the country's AML controls, Bloomberg reported: In a June 2017 interview, Matherat described the monumental task of modernizing the company’s compliance methods. After years of acquisitions and overseas expansion, the lender was left with a patchwork of computer programs to monitor transactions. The bank didn’t have a complete picture of the compliance controls in the organization’s businesses and regions, she said. "I hate surprises, but you don’t know what you don’t know," said Matherat, a lawyer and former deputy director general at the French central bank. Investors are clearly not happy. After all, if the bank becomes weighed down with toxic legal risks, it will be much more difficult for Sewing to sell it.

Doing time: what I learned from 24 hours watching The Clock

Christian Marclay’s film at Tate Modern knits together thousands of clips in an era-defining artwork. And I viewed the whole thingAnyone who’s ever had a monotonous job will know all about watching the clock. How each minute seems to take hours, moving at a deathly pace – 10.07 … 11.13 … 11.27 … Is it really only 12.01? – until you can finally head home.Clock-watching became a daily endurance for me in the summer of 2018. I would sit under bleaching white lights on the anonymous fourth floor of a tower block on the edge of the City of London, feeling under-utilised and bored to tears, doing little more each day than simply watching the time pass. By the time I resigned, I resolved to do something more productive with my hours. Instead of watching an office clock, I would watch Christian Marclay’s 2010 film The Clock – the 24-hour artwork made of thousands of film clips representing every minute of the day – in its entirety. In doing so, I hoped to reconfigure my relationship with time, and understand ways in which watching the clock could be enjoyable. Continue reading...

Anglo-American Psy-Op Agency Exposed

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts, In 2015 an organization called the Integrity Initiative was created “to counter disinformation and other forms of malign influence being conducted by states and sub-state actors seeking to interfere in democratic processes and to undermine public confidence in national political institutions.” As the only government that interferes in the internal affairs of other countries is in Washington DC, Integrity Initiative sounds like an Anglo-American intelligence operation to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries while pretending to counter Russian propaganda operations to discredit Western democracy. Under the guise of “safeguarding democracy,” Integrity Initiative is more likely involved in overthrowing democracy, as in Venezuela. Documents were hacked or leaked that show Integrity Initiative to be funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The online hacker group Anonymous said on Friday that the British government has created a "large-scale information secret service" across Europe, the US and Canada to meddle into the domestic affairs of European nations. Citing a "large number" of leaked documents, Anonymous claimed that Integrity Initiative, a network of clusters across Europe and North America launched in autumn 2015 to "reveal and combat propaganda and disinformation", was in reality a project funded and operated by London through "concealed contacts in British embassies." Integrity Initiative has admitted this funding, but explains it as the British government’s recognition of the Russian threat to social harmony and democratic values in the West. “The Integrity Initiative is a partnership of several independent institutions led by The Institute for Statecraft. This international public programme was set up in 2015 to counter disinformation and other forms of malign influence being conducted by states and sub-state actors seeking to interfere in democratic processes and to undermine public confidence in national political institutions. You will find details on the website (https://www.integrityinitiative.net/), and you can follow the programme on its Twitter account or on Facebook (both @InitIntegrity). The Institute for Statecraft is a not-for-profit charity dedicated to education in good governance and to enabling societies to adapt to a rapidly changing world. It conducts research, promotes models of best practice, runs programmes for societal development, and actively challenges threats to social harmony and democratic values. The Institute is financed primarily by grant support to its programmes. For its first two years, the Integrity Initiative was funded by private individuals. Funding for 2017 and 2018 was provided by a grant from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). This reflects their appreciation of the importance of the threat, and a wish to support civil society programmes seeking to rebuild the ability of democratic societies to resist large scale, malicious disinformation and influence campaigns. Think about this for a minute. The only allegation of Russian interference is the unsubstantiated “Russiagate” claim that Russia influenced the 2016 presidential election, but the Integrity Initiative was created in 2015 prior to any claims of Russian interference in Western elections. Many have concluded that the Integrity Initiative is a Western intelligence psy-op agency whose purpose is to maintain, and even worsen, the bad relations between the West and Russia. This conclusion is probably a safe one.

Leaked Transcript Proves Russiagaters Have Been Right All Along (Spoiler: Not Really)

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com, A transcript of exchanges between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin has been leaked to National News Conglomerate by an anonymous source within the Kremlin. We here at NNC have confirmed the authenticity of this document using the same rigorous verification process we’ve been using to authenticate the evidence for all our other reporting on Russia’s involvement in the 2016 US elections over the last two years. These verification methods include hunches, gut intuitions, and an introspective assessment of the way our feelings feel. The following exchanges revealed in this transcript provide the clearest evidence yet that the President of the United States has been in collusion with the Russian government for years. This introduction has been authored by the editorial board of the National News Conglomerate. Obey. 11/9/2016 Trump: I have done as you commanded, my dominant and all-powerful lord. I have conspired with your hackers to steal the election, and now I’m going to be president! I want to thank you for not releasing that video footage of those Russian prostitutes I hired to urinate on a bed the Obamas once slept in. If that had come out it would have offended and alienated a lot of people, which is something I never normally do. Putin: Yes that is an old KGB tactic called kompromat, a word which only extremely intelligent people know about. Keep this line of communication open. As long as you do as I command, your pee pee tape will remain secret. Trump: One thing I’m curious about though my lord, if you don’t mind my asking. If you already had an army of hackers targeting Democratic Party emails, why did you need my help? Couldn’t you just have hacked the emails and published them on your own? Why did you need me to interact with them at all? Putin: Moral support, mainly. We don’t need to get into specifics. Trump: Oh okay. ~ 1/20/2017 Trump: I’m in! Whew! I was really worried that leaked dossier would be the end of me! What are my instructions, my lord? Putin: Begin introducing racism and division to the United States. America has never experienced these things before, and it will shock and disorient them. With the US divided against itself, your nation will be far too weak to stand against my plans of total world domination. Trump: That’s a really tall order! America has always been a harmonious place where everyone gets along up until today. I’ll try my best though. Anything else? Putin: Yes, make them distrust your nation’s large media outlets and convince them that the US intelligence community is often dishonest. Trump: That will be really hard because those institutions have always been trusted for their unparalleled integrity. But your wish is my command, oh lord. ~ 4/7/2017 Putin: Bomb a Syrian airbase. Trump: What? Really? Aren’t they, like, your allies? Putin: Exactly. This will throw inquisitive minds off the scent. We can’t have them finding out about that pee tape. Trump: Are you sure? Some people are saying that chemical attack looks like it could have been perpetrated by the many terrorist factions in Syria and not the government. Putin: Who cares? Have you seen how relentless they’ve been in exposing us?? Have you never watched Rachel Maddow? That woman is a psychic bloodhound, masterfully sniffing out the truth at every turn! We can’t afford to take chances. Do as I say. Trump: Yes sir. Putin: And see if you can arrest that WikiLeaks guy. ~ 5/14/17 Trump: Hey do you want me to do anything about Montenegro’s addition to NATO? Putin: No. NATO expansion is good. Trump: Uhhh okay. ~ 6/28/17 Trump: Who do you want tapped for Ukraine envoy? Putin: Kurt Volker. Trump: Volker? He hates you! He’s like the biggest Russia hawk ever. Putin: We still need to throw the Russiagaters off the scent. We’re playing 3-D chess here. This is high-level disinformation, or dezinformatsiya as very smart people call it. I want as many Russia hawks in your administration as possible. Trump: 3-D chess? Alright. I guess you know what you’re doing. ~ 8/30/17 Putin: Shut down the Russian consulate in San Francisco and throw out a bunch of diplomats. That will confuse the hell out of them. ~ 11/21/17 Putin: Now approve the sale of arms to Ukraine. Not even Obama would do that. This will throw them off the trail for sure. ~ 1/1/18 Putin: Happy new year. Force RT and Sputnik to register as foreign agents. ~ 1/29/18 Putin: Make sure your Nuclear Posture Review greatly escalates its aggressive posture toward Russia. ~ 2/14/18 Putin: Happy Valentine’s Day. Don’t worry about those Russians your guys killed in Syria. ~ 2/19/18 Putin: Send a fleet of war ships to the Black Sea. ~ 3/25/18 Putin: Better expel a few dozen diplomats over the Skripal thing. ~ 4/5/18 Putin: Sanction a bunch of Russian oligarchs. ~ 4/10/18 Putin: Bomb Syria. Trump: What?? Again? Putin: Yes. Trump: What the hell, man? Why’d you even recruit me if you’re just going to have me do everything all the Russia hawks want? Putin: Well, you know how I told you we were playing 3-D chess against the Russiagate investigation? Trump: Yeah? Putin: Well that wasn’t enough. Now we’re playing 4-D chess. Trump: Fine, whatever, I don’t care. Just don’t release my pee tape. ~ 7/17/18 Trump: Oh man. They’re really making a major fuss about that summit. What should I do? Putin: Play it cool. Don’t let them know about our secret diabolical plot. Trump: Right. Remind me what that was again? Putin: Make Jim Acosta feel really, really sad. ~ 9/2/18 Putin: Have you arrested Julian Assange yet? Trump: Working on it. ~ 10/20/18 Putin: I like John Bolton’s idea. Pull out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. ~ 11/25/18 Putin: Make sure your administration loudly and aggressively backs Ukraine in our Kerch Strait spat. Trump: OMFG this is getting too weird. Are you just trolling me? What the hell is this? Trump: Hello? Trump: Are you there? Trump: Answer me! Putin: 5-D chess. *  *  * Thanks for reading!

Bernie Sanders not stepping into Senate Energy void as liberals fear Manchin

Pro-coal Democrat Joe Manchin is positioned to take his party's top energy policy post in the Senate, to the horror of environmental groups that want aggressive legislative action on climate change. And climate hawk Bernie Sanders is showing no interest in thwarting him, even though he has the seniority to do so. The jockeying comes as the top Democratic slot on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee is set to come open if ranking member Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) jumps to the Commerce Committee. Her most plausible replacement would be Manchin, a conservative West Virginian who famously shot the Democrats’ cap-and-trade climate bill in a 2010 campaign ad. Sanders outranks Manchin in seniority on the committee and could block him. But the Vermont independent has shown little inclination to leave his perch as the ranking member of the Budget Committee — even though he made climate change and clean energy a major plank in his 2016 presidential run and plans a national town hall on the issue Monday. “Anyone but Manchin,” said Lukas Ross, senior policy analyst at Friends of the Earth. “I’d rather pick someone from the phonebook.” Sanders, who is exploring a 2020 presidential campaign, twice declined Wednesday to comment on whether he’d be interested in becoming ranking member on the Energy Committee. His office did not respond to multiple requests for comment on his plans this week."Right now, we're worried about Yemen," Sanders told POLITICO after speaking on the floor about his resolution that would end U.S. support for the Saudi Arabian military campaign in that country. "That's what my mind is on."Manchin said he's interested in serving in the position but that no one has spoken to him about it. He urged all groups Wednesday to give him a chance. “I think they’ll find me, in any capacity I am, very moderate and trying to find a pathway forward for all sides to be heard and listened to,” Manchin told POLITICO. Liberal groups want to block Manchin, but they have not applied any direct pressure yet to Sanders or Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. The lack of activity in the Senate contrasts with this month's raucous protests calling for House Democrats to back a "Green New Deal," a sweeping proposal to decarbonize the economy being pushed by Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “We’re not shy about bringing the full spectrum of Democratic actions, including protests, to Capitol Hill but right now our priority is building power and building a vision on climate change,” said Julian NoiseCat, a U.S. policy analyst for 350.org, which is helping with the push for the Green New Deal in the House. "We see that primarily in the House at this current moment in time."Youth advocates flooded the offices of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and incoming Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) earlier this month urging them to back the Green New Deal proposal and make climate change a central plank for their caucus. Pelosi has said she wants to revive a select committee on climate change, and Pallone is promising several E&C hearings on the issue early next year.Schumer is already facing grumbling on his left flank for making Manchin vice chairman of the party's internal policy and communications committee, and for reappointing him to that leadership post even after Manchin voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Activists warn that allowing the coal-friendly West Virginia Democrat to grab the top spot on Energy would fuel a liberal revolt. “This is a Chuck Schumer problem,” Ross said. “If he allows Manchin to become ranking member of Energy and Natural Resources, it might be strike three.” Manchin's critics aren’t explicitly pressuring Sanders to seize the Energy spot. Some say it's up to Schumer to reassess seniority rules or do whatever necessary to prevent Manchin from moving up. “There’s probably a lot of people that need to take action here to make sure the Democrats make the right choice. We have every faith [Sanders] will do whatever he can to ensure he’s doing whatever he can on climate change,” said David Turnbull, strategic communications director of Oil Change International. “Lifting Joe Manchin to this position would be a horrible own-goal by the Democrats.”Still, elevating Sanders would bring some risk as well, given how far to the left his positions are. One environmentalist based in the West said Sanders' support for the "keep it in the ground" movement on fossil fuels may not play well with Democrats whose states depend heavily on royalties and taxes from oil and gas development. “There’s a right way and wrong way do to oil and gas development on public land, and that’s not a conversation Bernie Sanders wants to have,” the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity because his organization hadn’t formed a position on who should be the committee’s ranking Democrat. The threat of a liberal backlash and Sanders' decision not to campaign for the job have created a difficult decision for Cantwell, who is next in line to be the top Democrat on Commerce after Bill Nelson of Florida lost reelection this year. The Commerce Committee holds broad jurisdiction over industries like aviation and technology that are key employers in her state. Cantwell told reporters Wednesday she’d yet to make a decision and doesn’t have a timeline for doing so. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) would also have seniority over Manchin and could face pressure, though she’s expressed happiness with her current top slot on the Agriculture Committee this week.

Украинские хакеры выложили в сеть переписку представителей партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина"

БРЮССЕЛЬ, 16 марта. /Корр. ИТАР-ТАСС Денис Дубровин/. Украинская ячейка международной сети Anonymous и группа хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", выложили в интернет электронную переписку представителей руководства украинских партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина". Архивы с перепиской содержат сообщения, которыми обменивались региональные лидеры партий в Киеве, Львове, Донецке, Харькове и Луганске. В сообщениях, в частности, обсуждается организация силовых провокаций на Восточной Украине с участием активистов "Правого сектора". Никаких независимых подтверждений этой информации, добытой незаконным путем, не существует. Группа украинских хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", в ночь с субботы на воскресенье обрушила основные информационные ресурсы НАТО, которые более 12 часов работали с серьезными перебоями. Их функционирование восстановилось в полной мере только после того, как хакеры распространили заявление "о прекращении DDoS-атаки на ресурсы НАТО". Пока неизвестно, смогли ли эксперты по киберобороне НАТО установить источник атаки и будет ли альянс выдвигать судебные претензии хакерам. Распределенный отказ в обслуживании, известный под английской аббревиатурой DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), - это один из наиболее распространенных методов хакерского нападения, цель которого - перегрузить системы огромным количеством запросов, автоматически направляемых одновременно с большого числа компьютеров.

Хакеры Anonymous напали на Израиль

Сайты правительственных организаций Израиля подвергаются кибератакам хакеров, передает Associated Press со ссылкой на израильские СМИ.Представители организации Anonymous сообщили в социальной сети Twitter о начале "операции Израиль". Как стало известно, атакам подверглись сайты министерства обороны и министерства образования Израиля, а также целый ряд сайтов израильских банков.Утверждается, что ни один сайт не прекратил своей работы, и все атаки были до сих пор успешно отражены.По словам представителей Anonymous, атаки на сайты правительства Израиля являются ответом на авиаудар, нанесенный израильскими военно-воздушными силами по сектору Газа 3 апреля 2013г.Напомним, в ноябре 2012г. Израиль провел в секторе Газа, находящемся под контролем палестинского движения "Хамас", восьмидневную военную операцию "Облачный столп". Конфликт завершился перемирием, достигнутым при посредничестве Египта.Источник: РБК.руИ в дополнение:«Anonymous» раскрыли сеть из 30 000 тайных агентов Моссада: вычислить израильского террориста теперь может каждыйХакерская организация Anonymous взломала информационную систему «израильского» «Моссада»Несколько дней назад хакерская организация «Anonymous», использующая в качестве своего символа знаменитую «маску Гая Фокса», взломала информационную систему «израильского» «Моссада», раскрыв сеть из 30 000 тайных агентов, часть из которых отнесены к категории «киллеров». Кроме того, хакеры опубликовали тысячи имен, ID-номеров, почтовых адресов и паспортных данных израильских политиков и офицеров ЦАХАЛа.
