Western Union admitted it behaved criminally through its “willful failure to maintain an effective anti-money laundering program and aiding and abetting wire fraud,” reports Forbes. They’ve agreed to pay a $586 million fine. From the Forbes article:

“In a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission on Thursday, authorities describe insufficient or poorly enforced policies that resulted in the funneling of hundreds of millions of dollars in proceeds from illegal gambling, fraud and drug and human trafficking.

In one case, illegal immigrants from China sent money back to the people who smuggled them across the border. With the help of employees, the payments were structured so that they didn’t trigger reporting requirements under the Bank Secrecy Act, say authorities.

In another example, Western Union processed hundreds of thousands of transactions for an international scam, wherein fraudsters directed people to send money in order to claim a prize or help a relative. Western Union employees often processed the payments in return for a cut of the proceeds, say authorities.”

From CFO:

Wifredo A. Ferrer, the U.S. Attorney in Miami, said the misconduct reflected “a flawed corporate culture that failed to provide a checks and balances approach to combat criminal practices.”

“Western Union’s failure to implement proper controls and discipline agents that violated compliances policies enabled the proliferation of illegal gambling, money laundering and fraud-related schemes,” he added.

I’m not a fan of civil asset forfeiture, which is basically a way for law enforcement to steal money and assets from anyone without charging them with a crime. But in this case, it seems appropriate for the government seize the assets of the CEO of Western Union, Hikmet Ersek, until he can prove that his $8.5 million salary didn’t depend on Western Union’s admitted criminal activities.

This Company Has Built a Profile on Every American Adult*

True or false?

Big Brother by Meluzzo

By David Gauvey Herbert, Olga Kharif

Forget telephoto lenses and fake mustaches: The most important tools for America’s 35,000 private investigators are database subscription services. For more than a decade, professional snoops have been able to search troves of public and nonpublic records—known addresses, DMV records, photographs of a person’s car—and condense them into comprehensive reports costing as little as $10. Now they can combine that information with the kinds of things marketers know about you, such as which politicians you donate to, what you spend on groceries, and whether it’s weird that you ate in last night, to create a portrait of your life and predict your behavior.

IDI, a year-old company in the so-called data-fusion business, is the first to centralize and weaponize all that information for its customers. The Boca Raton, Fla., company’s database service, idiCORE, combines public records with purchasing, demographic, and behavioral data. Chief Executive Officer Derek Dubner says the system isn’t waiting for requests from clients—it’s already built a profile on every American adult, including young people who wouldn’t be swept up in conventional databases, which only index transactions.

 “We have data on that 21-year-old who’s living at home with mom and dad,” he says.

Dubner declined to provide a demo of idiCORE or furnish the company’s report on me. But he says these personal profiles include all known addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses; every piece of property ever bought or sold, plus related mortgages; past and present vehicles owned; criminal citations, from speeding tickets on up; voter registration; hunting permits; and names and phone numbers of neighbors. The reports also include photos of cars taken by private companies using automated license plate readers—billions of snapshots tagged with GPS coordinates and time stamps to help PIs surveil people or bust alibis.

IDI also runs two coupon websites, allamericansavings.com and samplesandsavings.com, that collect purchasing and behavioral data. When I signed up for the latter, I was asked for my e-mail address, birthday, and home address, information that could easily link me with my idiCORE profile. The site also asked if I suffered from arthritis, asthma, diabetes, or depression, ostensibly to help tailor its discounts.

Users and industry analysts say the addition of purchasing and behavioral data to conventional data fusion outmatches rival systems in terms of capabilities—and creepiness.

 “The cloud never forgets, and imperfect pictures of you composed from your data profile are carefully filled in over time,” says Roger Kay, president of Endpoint Technologies Associates, a consulting firm.

“We’re like bugs in amber, completely trapped in the web of our own data.”

When logging in to IDI and similar databases, a PI must select a permissible use for a search under U.S. privacy laws. The Federal Trade Commission oversees the industry, but PI companies are largely expected to police themselves, because a midsize outfit may run thousands of searches a month.

Dubner says most Americans have little to fear. As examples, he cites idiCORE uses such as locating a missing person and nabbing a fraud or terrorism suspect.

IDI, like much of the data-fusion industry, traces its lineage to Hank Asher, a former cocaine smuggler and self-taught programmer who began fusing sets of public data from state and federal governments in the early 1990s. After Sept. 11, law enforcement’s interest in commercial databases grew, and more money and data began raining down, says Julia Angwin, a reporter who wrote about the industry in her 2014 book, Dragnet Nation.

Asher died suddenly in 2013, leaving behind his company, the Last One (TLO), which credit bureau TransUnion bought in bankruptcy for $154 million. Asher’s disciples, including Dubner, left TLO and eventually teamed up with Michael Brauser, a former business partner of Asher’s, and billionaire health-care investor Phillip Frost. In May 2015, after a flurry of purchases and mergers, the group rebranded its database venture as IDI.

Besides pitching its databases to big-name PIs (Kroll, Control Risks), law firms, debt collectors, and government agencies, IDI says it’s also targeting consumer marketers. The 200-employee company had revenue of about $40 million in its most recent quarter and says 2,800 users signed up for idiCORE in the first month after its May release. It declined to provide more recent figures. The company’s data sets are growing, too. In December, Frost helped underwrite IDI’s $100 million acquisition of marketing profiler Fluent, which says it has 120 million profiles of U.S. consumers. In June, IDI bought ad platform Q Interactive for a reported $21 million in stock.

IDI may need Frost’s deep pockets for a while. The PI industry’s three favorite databases are owned by TransUnion and media giants Reed Elsevier and Thomson Reuters.

“There’s no shortage,” says Chuck McLaughlin, chairman of the board of the World Association of Detectives, which has about 1,000 members.

“The longer you’re in business, the more data you have, the better results.” He uses TLO and Tracers Information Specialists.

Steve Rambam, a PI who hosts Nowhere to Hide on the Investigation Discovery channel, says marketing data remains a niche monitoring tool compared with social media, but its power can be unparalleled.

“You may not know what you do on a regular basis, but I know,” Rambam says.

“I know it’s Thursday, you haven’t eaten Chinese food in two weeks, and I know you’re due.”

Trump Signing Executive Order Forcing Continuation of DAPL and Keystone XL*

Trump Signing Executive Order Forcing Continuation of DAPL and Keystone XL*

By Matt Agorist

In a move that is sure to cause a firestorm of controversy, Donald Trump signed Executive Orders at 11 a.m. EST, advancing the Dakota Access Pipeline as well as the Keystone XL.

According to Reuters, U.S. President Donald Trump signed two executive actions on Tuesday to advance construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, an administration official said, rolling back key Obama administration environmental policies in favor of expanding energy infrastructure.

The entire substance of the executive order was not made immediately clear. However, they will fulfill campaign promises Trump made to approve both pipelines — which have been vehemently opposed by a massive bipartisan sect.

This news comes on the heels of a pipeline spill yesterday, which dumped hundreds of thousands of litres of oil on an aboriginal community in Canada.

As the Free Thought Project has reported, this move by Trump has been premeditated since the election. It is most likely why the company behind DAPL, Energy Transfer Partners, said in December, the denial of an easement necessary to drill under the Missouri River is of no consequence for its plans to complete the project.

According to a statement from Energy Transfer Partners and Sunoco Logistics, which is acquiring ETP in a merger:

“As stated all along, ETP and SXL are fully committed to ensuring that this vital project is brought to completion and fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and around Lake Oahe. Nothing this Administration has done today changes that in any way.”

The incoming administration already stated its support for the project and the courts have already stated twice that it appeared the Corps followed the required process in considering the permit,” said Senator Heidi Heitkamp (ND) in a statement last month.

Heitkamp, incidentally, met with President-Elect Donald Trump last month, to the delight of Morton County Commission Chairman Cody Schulz, who noted:

“I sincerely hope Senator Heitkamp is able to make a direct plea to the new Administration for the help and resources from the federal government that are desperately needed to assist local law enforcement in their efforts to provide public safety, and to expedite a decision on the final easement for the Dakota Access pipeline so that our citizens may return to their normal lives. We have seen nothing but foot-dragging and unhelpful directives from the Obama administration. I trust Senator Heitkamp will use her meeting and her influence to ensure that help is on the way for the people of North Dakota when the President-Elect is sworn in on January 20th.”

It now appears that these plans have made their way to official White House ink — and DAPL will continue as planned.

This executive order by Trump seeks to override the decision by the Army Corps of Engineers who refused to grant permission to extend the Dakota Access pipeline beneath a Missouri River reservoir last month.

As the Free Thought Project has previously reported, the DAPL is set to go over lands which do not belong to the Federal Government as they were usurped by the state’s violation of Native American treaties.

As for TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone pipeline, that was also rejected under former President Barack Obama. However, this move was seen by many as a seeming giveaway to Warren Buffet who holds a quasi-monopoly on train-based oil transportation through the same region.

Once news of the Executive Order broke, TransCanada stock climbed as much as 1.1% to C$63.25 at 9:33 a.m. in New York. Energy Transfer Equity LP and Energy Transfer Partners LP climbed as much as 3.3% and 1.7%, respectively, as reported by Bloomberg.

Donald Trump, prior to being elected to POTUS, had investments in Energy Transfer Partners. According to CNBC, in December, he sold his entire stake in the company as ownership in it could be perceived as a conflict of interest.

CNBC also reported that Energy Transfer Partners’ owner, Kelcy Warren, “gave $100,000 to Trump’s joint fundraising effort with the Republican Party.”

This move will likely be met with more protests and even more police violence.

Syrian Army Kills Scores of ISIS and al-Nusra Terrorists in Deir Ez-Zor and Homs*

Army and Armed Forces units, supported by Syrian Air Force, achieved a new advance in their operations against ISIS in Deir Ez-zor, killing scores of terrorists.

SANA’s reporter in Deir Ez-zor said that an army unit, in cooperation with supporting forces, carried out during the past hours a special operation against ISIS gatherings in the graveyards area to the south of Deir Ezzor city, establishing control over a strategic hill that serves as a vantage point after inflicting heavy losses in ranks and equipment upon terrorists.

The reporter said that the army seized a PKC machinegun and a number of other weapons used by ISIS in the same area, adding that members of army’s engineering units dismantled a number of explosive devices that terrorists had planted earlier.

The reporter pointed out that army units eliminated members of terrorist groups who infiltrated near the Panorama area in the southern entrance of Deir Ezzor city, including one of their leader who was nicknamed Abu Yousef.

The reporter denied claims circulated on the terrorists’ social media pages about terrorists gaining control over the Panorama area.

The reporter also said that the Syrian Air Force destroyed a command position for ISIS in the area surrounding al-Bu-Awad Mosque in al-Mo-Hasan city in the eastern countryside of the province, killing 12 terrorists including Ragheb al-Arif, Salah al-Mahmoud al-Turki al-Salim, Abboud al-Aliwi, Ragheb Ahmad al-Hammad, and Badr Hamid al-Aliwi.

In Homs province, an army unit directed strikes on the fortifications and dens of Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist groups affiliated to it in al-Farhania and Um Sharshoh villages in the northern countryside of the province, according to a military source.

The source said that as a result of the strikes, a number of terrorists were killed, others were injured, and their fortified positions were destroyed.

Meanwhile, the army’s Air Force destroyed convoy of vehicles for ISIS terrorists in Kasaret Bahir east of al-Qalamoun in Damascus Countryside.

Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House and admitted child rapist, was sentenced only 15 months in prison for paying his victims to keep quiet

By Matt Agorist

In April of last year, Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House and admitted child rapist, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for paying his victims to keep quiet.

Hastert was sentenced, not for raping children, but for illegally structuring bank transactions in an effort to cover up his sexual abuse of young members of a wrestling team he coached.

Now, this sicko paedophile is trying to get back that hush money. Because one of the boys he raped broke his silence, in spite of the $1.7 million in hush money Hastert gave him, this pedophile politician wants his money back.

When the victim, known only as ‘Individial A’, broke his silence, Hastert’s child rapes were exposed — resulting in the subsequent prosecution.

“To the extent any contract existed between plaintiff [Individual A] and defendant [Hastert], plaintiff breached that contract,” Hastert’s lawyers wrote.

“Plaintiff’s breach of conduct resulted in damages to defendant and plaintiff is accordingly required to return $1.7 million to defendant.”

Individual A did not go public with this information — he merely spoke to the FBI after the transactions were uncovered by investigators. The victim’s attorney, Kristi Browne told NBC that it was Hastert who was at fault.

“Mr. Hastert has decided that rather than live up to his promise to compensate his victim for his molestation and resulting injury, he will ask his victim to pay him,” she said in a statement.

“He admits to agreeing to make payments, but then denies that it is an agreement that he has to keep. His response is predictable and we look forward to entering the discovery phase of the case.”

Hastert, who happens to have a long and friendly past with none other than the Podesta family, is currently serving his sentence at the Federal prison hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. Although Hastert wasn’t sentenced for the paedophilia, because the statute of limitations had run out, the judge labeled him a “serial child molester” and ordered him to enroll in a sex-offender treatment program. Hastert also admitted to, and apologized for, being a child rapist.

During the trial, Hastert admitted that he “mistreated” and “took advantage” of former students who came forward to say they were molested — three of them anonymously.

“What I did was wrong and I regret it,” he said at the time.

Disgustingly enough, this child rapist became speaker of the house after he’d raped these boys. Given the admitted and exposed widespread paedophilia among those in power, it is entirely possible, and indeed likely, that Hastert continued his disgusting abuse while serving as the house speaker.

Hastert only admitted to the abuse after a federal investigation. At first, the serial child molester denied the accusations and claimed to be a victim of extortion. However, an investigation later revealed the truth.

New York City to Pay out $75mn for Nearly 1 million Bogus Summonses*

New York City to Pay out $75mn for Nearly 1 million Bogus Summonses*

The city of New York has agreed to pay up to $75 million to resolve a long-running civil rights lawsuit. Police were found to be issuing more than 900,000 summonses without probable cause – as a way to meet quotas.

In the lawsuit, Stinson v. City of New York, the plaintiffs argued that the New York Police Department (NYPD) had been engaging in “a pattern and practice of stopping, seizing, and issuing summonses to individuals without probable cause, in violation of the First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and 14th Amendments.” 

Lawyers for the plaintiffs have called the lawsuit the largest false-arrest class-action lawsuit in the city’s history, with nearly a million summonses issued since 2007 for minor offenses, such as disorderly conduct, trespassing, urinating and drinking alcohol in public.

Sharif Stinson, the lead plaintiff in the case, filed the suit after he was stopped twice by police outside his aunt’s Bronx apartment in 2010. Stinson was given summonses for disorderly conduct, but the summonses were later dismissed.

Since then, dozens of other officers joined the lawsuit, alleging that they were ordered to issue summonses “regardless of whether any crime or violation” had occurred in order to meet quotas.

“These are minority police officers walking in minority areas and they are being pressured by their white superiors to basically get more arrests,” Lawyer Emeka Nwokoro told the New York Post.

“When they don’t do it, they get punished by the NYPD.”

In the settlement, which still needs to be approved by US District Judge Robert Sweet, the city does not admit that the NYPD was aiming to meet quotas. However, as a part of the settlement, police officers throughout the department will receive notifications that quotas will be banned.

The city has also agreed to set aside $56.5 million to pay the more than 900,000 defendants who were issued summons from 2007 to 2015. All the recipients of bogus summonses will receive a maximum of $150 each. In addition, the city has agreed to pay $18.5 million in legal fees.

Any money not claimed by defendants will be turned back over to the city, meaning that the actual fine could be significantly less.

“We have achieved a landmark settlement in a civil rights case that advances the cause of justice,” Elinor Sutton, a lawyer for the plaintiffs said, according to AM New York.

U.S. World Population Control Programme Revealed Creates War and Famine*

U.S. World Population Control Programme Revealed Creates War and Famine*

 

In researching for another report TruePublica unearthed a database dating back to the mid 1990’s and although quite widely publicised some years ago, provides astonishing insight into how dangerous American foreign policy has developed over the decades.

This particular article appeared as part of a feature in the December 8, 1995 issue of Executive Intelligence Review, and was circulated extensively by the Schiller Insitute Food for Peace Movement entitled: “Who Is Responsible for the World Food Shortage?”

The article quotes from a classified report and summarizes that a plan, formulated by Henry Kissinger was adopted by the U.S. administration in the 1970’s under President Gerald Ford to use population control methods in regions around the world where threats to their own economic or political power was likely emerging. The article, now over twenty years old, explains in detail the plan to starve millions and keep many countries in a cycle of perpetual emerging nation status through famine or war or both.

At the base of the article we have included more links as supporting evidence to Joseph Breda’s 1995 article and attached former World Bank staff Peter Koenig’s latest piece on Washington’s “Financial Genocide” of India.

 

One of Kissingers major sources for the starvation of populations that posed in U.S. delusion a threat to U.S. interests was the Royal Commission on Population, which King George VI had created in 1944. Bengal, India is a prime example of British mastery

 

Kissinger’s 1974 Plan for Food Control Genocide
by Joseph Brewda
Dec. 8, 1995

On Dec. 10, 1974, the U.S. National Security Council under Henry Kissinger completed a classified 200-page study, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study falsely claimed that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) was a grave threat to U.S. national security. Adopted as official policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford, NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in those countries through birth control, and also, implicitly, war and famine. Brent Scowcroft, who had by then replaced Kissinger as national security adviser (the same post Scowcroft was to hold in the Bush administration), was put in charge of implementing the plan. CIA Director George Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture.

The bogus arguments that Kissinger advanced were not original. One of his major sources was the Royal Commission on Population, which King George VI had created in 1944 “to consider what measures should be taken in the national interest to influence the future trend of population.” The commission found that Britain was gravely threatened by population growth in its colonies, since “a populous country has decided advantages over a sparsely-populated one for industrial production.” The combined effects of increasing population and industrialization in its colonies, it warned, “might be decisive in its effects on the prestige and influence of the West,” especially effecting “military strength and security.”

NSSM 200 similarly concluded that the United States was threatened by population growth in the former colonial sector. It paid special attention to 13 “key countries” in which the United States had a “special political and strategic interest”: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia. It claimed that population growth in those states was especially worrisome, since it would quickly increase their relative political, economic, and military strength.

For example, Nigeria:

“Already the most populous country on the continent, with an estimated 55 million people in 1970, Nigeria’s population by the end of this century is projected to number 135 million. This suggests a growing political and strategic role for Nigeria, at least in Africa.”

Or Brazil:

“Brazil clearly dominated the continent demographically.” The study warned of a “growing power status for Brazil in Latin America and on the world scene over the next 25 years.”

Famine for Profit in Somalia

 

Food as a weapon

There were several measures that Kissinger advocated to deal with this alleged threat, most prominently, birth control and related population-reduction programs. He also warned that “population growth rates are likely to increase appreciably before they begin to decline,” even if such measures were adopted.

A second measure was curtailing food supplies to targeted states, in part to force compliance with birth control policies:

 “There is also some established precedent for taking account of family planning performance in appraisal of assistance requirements by AID [U.S. Agency for International Development] and consultative groups. Since population growth is a major determinant of increases in food demand, allocation of scarce PL 480 resources should take account of what steps a country is taking in population control as well as food production. In these sensitive relations, however, it is important in style as well as substance to avoid the appearance of coercion.”

“Mandatory programs may be needed and we should be considering these possibilities now,” the document continued, adding,

“Would food be considered an instrument of national power? … Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?”

Kissinger also predicted a return of famines that could make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary.

“Rapid population growth and lagging food production in developing countries, together with the sharp deterioration in the global food situation in 1972 and 1973, have raised serious concerns about the ability of the world to feed itself adequately over the next quarter of century and beyond,” he reported.

The cause of that coming food deficit was not natural, however, but was a result of western financial policy:

 “Capital investments for irrigation and infrastructure and the organization requirements for continuous improvements in agricultural yields may be beyond the financial and administrative capacity of many LDCs. For some of the areas under heaviest population pressure, there is little or no prospect for foreign exchange earnings to cover constantly increasingly imports of food.”

“It is questionable,” Kissinger gloated, “whether aid donor countries will be prepared to provide the sort of massive food aid called for by the import projections on a long-term continuing basis.”

Consequently, “large-scale famine of a kind not experienced for several decades—a kind the world thought had been permanently banished,” was foreseeable—famine, which has indeed come to pass.
