It's different than Hunter's deals but creates the same appearances.  Only in this case it will be covered and Hunter's was just Russian disinformation.

Saudis turned anti-US under Biden.  There is the bad Iran deal pending and also the Khashoggi murder destroying a necessary relationship.

'No laws broken' means this will not stop Trump from running nor his opponents from calling it corruption.

We want politicians to return to the private sector after public service and the business world is now global.  Funds want money and the Saudis have that.

It's a bit like the Clinton crony network roaming the markets of the world that never seemed to offend Dems.  But without double standards, they'd have none.

I can see that it is different in that it came about AFTER Trump left office, but

a) it can be argued that it was a payoff for work already performed; and

b) how is it different from what Hillary/Billary did while she was out of office?  Is there not the same forward looking nature to the deal?

Re: NRO on the murder of Seth Rich
« Reply #658 on: June 03, 2022, 06:49:53 AM »
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/06/who_really_killed_seth_rich.html

I'm so old, I remember when this was a conspiracy theory!

"For the theory to be true, its believers have to demonstrate that Rich leaked to WikiLeaks, that someone in the DNC (or the Clinton camp) in turn had Rich murdered, that the D.C. police are intentionally slow-walking the investigation, that the major intelligence agencies (namely the CIA, FBI, and NSA) are together either deliberately concocting a story about Russian interference or too stupid to recognize an inside job, and finally, that the remainder of official Washington is either oblivious to or colluding with conspirators who’ve damaged relations with Russia in hopes of bringing down a president."


The Facts of the Seth Rich Murder That Don’t Support Conspiracy Theories

Our David French with what needs to be known and said about the murder of Seth Rich:

The conspiracy is based on a true event — the terrible and unsolved murder of Seth Rich, a young Democratic National Committee staffer. Early the morning on July 10, an unidentified assailant shot Rich in the back. The police haven’t solved the crime, and their current best theory is that the attack occurred as part of a botched or interrupted robbery. Rich’s valuables, however, were still on his body, and the police (so far as we know) have no leads…

For the theory to be true, its believers have to demonstrate that Rich leaked to WikiLeaks, that someone in the DNC (or the Clinton camp) in turn had Rich murdered, that the D.C. police are intentionally slow-walking the investigation, that the major intelligence agencies (namely the CIA, FBI, and NSA) are together either deliberately concocting a story about Russian interference or too stupid to recognize an inside job, and finally, that the remainder of official Washington is either oblivious to or colluding with conspirators who’ve damaged relations with Russia in hopes of bringing down a president. Oh, and did I mention that the family of the slain young man is also either in on the conspiracy or unaware of its existence?

Rich’s parents write in the Washington Post today:

The circumstances of what happened next are still unclear. We know that Seth was abruptly confronted on the street, that he had been on the phone and quickly ended the call. We also know that there were signs of a struggle, including a watchband torn when the assailants attempted to rip it off his wrist. Law-enforcement officials told us that Seth’s murder looked like a botched robbery attempt in which the assailants — after shooting our son — panicked, immediately ran and abandoned Seth’s personal belongings. We have seen no evidence, by any person at any time, that Seth’s murder had any connection to his job at the Democratic National Committee or his life in politics. Anyone who claims to have such evidence is either concealing it from us or lying.

… We know that Seth’s personal email and his personal computer were both inspected by detectives early in the investigation and that the inspection revealed no evidence of any communications with anyone at WikiLeaks or anyone associated with WikiLeaks. Nor did that inspection reveal any evidence that Seth had leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks or to anyone else. Indeed, those who have suggested that Seth’s role as a data analyst at the DNC gave him access to a wide trove of emails are simply incorrect — Seth’s job was to develop analytical models to encourage voters to turn out to vote. He didn’t have access to DNC emails, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee emails, John Podesta’s emails or Hillary Clinton’s emails. That simply wasn’t his job.

The fact that Rich’s valuables weren’t taken was indeed odd, but it’s hardly unthinkable that his assailant panicked and ran after the shooting. The Washington, D.C., police failing to generate leads is not the least bit surprising. In 2015, the D.C. police solved only 62 percent of the city’s homicides. The closure rate has been as high as 96 percent in 2011 and as low as 60.5 percent in 2003.

Then again, what makes someone believe in a conspiracy theory is not facts, but a need to believe.

When Corruption Grows [Joe Mannix]
—Open Blogger

Much ink has been spilled - including by me - about the deplorable state of integrity within the government and other institutions. The institutions are hopelessly corrupt and operate for their own benefit and without any checks or balances. They take as take can, and to hell with the consequences. Those consequences are largely paid for by the little people or those who fall out of favor. It's classical Party corruption and our institutions and systems are lousy with it.

Our institutions are so full of corruption that it isn't unreasonable to call it total. Every major institution from the government agencies and legislatures and courts to the universities to the major corporations to the NGOs to the school boards and so on down the line is hopelessly, even diabolically corrupt. What we have in this country (and what is present in many other countries) is essentially total institutional corruption. It is systemic corruption in that all official systems of size are corrupted. This is not good by any means, but it could be worse - and we'll get there if the trend continues.

The flip side of total systemic corruption is that some things - things outside the major power system - are not corrupt. Daily life is not too bad in this regard. You can go to the supermarket and be reasonably confident that you will get what it says you'll get on the tin. The odds of being ripped off by a random stranger aren't terribly worse now than they used to be. The level of fraud, theft, abuse, etc. between and among people and during the routine work of daily life is not the defining characteristic of everyday interactions. In this regard, our total systemic corruption intersects with the wider population arbitrarily and with no mercy, but things are okay until the evil eye of the corrupt falls on you.

The next stage from systemic corruption is what I call endemic corruption - the condition where all things are corrupt in all respects and between all people at all times. In such an environment, none of the normal honesty of daily life is present. You buy food and find that it is fake and the package is either empty or it contains some ersatz food. You buy a house and find that it falls apart moments after you move in. You buy goods and find that they are counterfeit. The reports you use at work are all doctored and the company transparently lies about everything they do. Everything from financial statements to pollution controls to mileage to the octane content of gasoline is fabricated. The machinery with which you interact is manipulated to count high for things you buy and low for things where you get paid. Your money is stolen and contracts are unfulfilled. You can spin the wheel in the courts, but then the official corruption intersects and if you're not in favor, you lose. Party favor gives some the right to behave with impunity in all aspects of life, and the rest just have to get abused.

And become abusers. In a world without morality in a condition of endemic corruption when everything from weights and measures to ingredient lists to business practices are a lie, only a sucker tries to follow the rules. You get ripped off, sure, but you're not above ripping someone else off. Survival is survival. You might not like it, but you'll probably do it - especially when your boss tells you to go ahead and use timber to reinforce concrete instead of steel, or else be fired. The problem compounds with each turn of the crank. The primary problem to be solved is no longer "how do I do the right thing" but rather "how do I not get caught?" Societies with endemic corruption are, in a word, exploitative. Everyone exploits everyone else at all times.

If you want a vision of how such a world looks, cast your sight across the Pacific to Red China. For as bad as a lot of the crap they export is, the domestic market is often worse. Fake food, fake construction, fake goods, fake measures, fake numbers, fake everything. If you're Party-connected (in the right faction), there are no rules in any venue. If you're not, your job is to be harvested until you tap out. We are not anything like that far along in this country. In terms of law, the Party-connected can do anything they want but it doesn't yet extend downstream to everything like it does in places further along the corruption curve.

And so what happens in such an environment? Universal pain, exploitation and hopelessness. That has its own consequences, which can be seen through some fringe movements in Red China like "lying flat" (doing nothing above intermittent subsistence labor - similar to the "anti-work" concept floated in this country, but with a wildly different motivation) to people referring to themselves as "leeks" or "chives," depending on translation (people who grow to be harvested and regrown and harvested again) and, more distressingly, arguing that the current generation should be the last. "I am the last generation" or "I will give birth to no more leeks" is the ultimate black-pill attitude. A quote I heard that was attributed to a young Chinese office worker seems to sum up the essential problem fairly well: "everyone hurts me and I hurt everyone."

Endemic corruption is evidence of general moral degradation along with with legal and institutional illegitimacy. The people who live in such a condition are regularly and routinely abused and regularly and routinely engage in abuse themselves. This will continue until hope is lost. For Red China's sake, I hope those fringe elements remain fringe and that some degree of honesty can emerge. For our sake, I hope we learn the lesson that Red China can provide and avoid the problems of endemic corruption. Our systemic corruption, if not contained and reversed, will flow downstream and take us to a very rotten place.

There Won't Be Any Winners Because The Status Quo Is Corrupt Everywhere

There Won't Be Any Winners Because The Status Quo Is Corrupt Everywhere
Systemic corruption on this vast scale optimizes failure and collapse.

Debating which nations will "win" as the global economy unravels is a popular but pointless parlor game. Since the status quo in every nation is deeply, profoundly, systemically corrupt, there won't be any "winners," there will only be losers.

Apologists love to say that corruption has always come hand-in-hand with power, and this is superficially true. Once a centralized hierarchy takes power, those seeking self-glorification and wealth seek power as a means to their self-enrichment and glorification.

Naturally, they use their power to reward those who helped them gain power and those helping them maintain power. So a small Texas contractor who contributed to Lyndon Johnson's political career was awarded immense contracts to build bases in Vietnam during Johnson's vast expansion of the Vietnam War. It's just business, right?

But this naive, superficial normalization of corruption ignores the consequential difference between two types of corruption. One kind is directing cushy positions and contracts to cronies: well-paid positions on boards are given to pals, fat contracts are awarded to political allies, and so on. The point here is that somebody was going to get the cushy position and the fat contract anyway, and so the corruption is in who gets the gravy.

This level of corruption has a systemic cost. Bribes paid to secure contracts and subsidies act as a "tax" on the economy, as the bribes add expense but do not deliver any improvement in quality or quantity. When the most qualified candidate or firm is passed over to favor an unqualified crony or ally, the loss in effectiveness is consequential, though more difficult to measure.

The systemically destructive type of corruption is on a completely different level. Systemic corruption deforms the core economic functions of governance and capital to enrich insiders at the expense of the national interest and the common good.

When corruption hollows out a nation's military capabilities, that undermines national security. When shoddily built equipment is stripped of valuable parts (to be sold on the black market) to the point it's no longer of any military value, corruption has a cost that is incalculable until it's too late to repair the rot. When armament contracts are given to build inferior weapons systems to benefit cronies, corruption has optimized losing the next war.

When corruption is the deciding factor in distributing the nation's capital, that mal-investment of irreplaceable resources in unproductive projects fatally undermines the entire economy. When corruption funnels national resources into poorly built bridges to nowhere ghost cities and monuments to excess, there are opportunity costs that can never be recovered, for all that capital and labor could have been invested productively.

Corruption becomes fatal when those in power are no longer able to distinguish the difference between self-interest and the national interest. Systemic corruption blurs the lines and persuades those in power that their self-enrichment and power grabs are serving the national interest.

The truth is their distorting the system to maximize their private gain cannot possibly serve the national interest or the common good. It's one thing to reward a long-serving crony by appointing the pal to a cushy no-real-work-required position on a crony-filled board with little actual power. It's another to distort the distribution of irreplaceable capital and resources to maximize the self-enrichment of the corrupt few as the expense of the many.

Systemic corruption on this vast scale optimizes failure and collapse.

In my book Global Crisis, National Renewal, I argue that the only nations that will survive the transition from a waste is growth economy will be those which embrace Degrowth. We can also say that only those nations which succeed in limiting systemic corruption will have the means to invest their nation's dwindling resources productively.

Since no nation is exhibiting any consequential interest in either Degrowth or eradicating systemic corruption, there will be no "winners", there will only be losers. While the status quo careens into decay and collapse, at least we can enrich ourselves by chasing the Pelosi Portfolio.

bulger got arranged transfer to a prison where he was murdered?

not sure why this takes 4 yrs to find this out.

"  He had suffered multiple heart attacks and was confined to a wheelchair, a source familiar with his condition told ABC News, leaving his attorneys puzzled over how Bulger's medical condition suddenly improved so much that he was able to move prisons.'

"  Bulger's death inside the federal prison is just one high-profile death that has not seen resolution, another other being the suicide of Jeffery Epstein in a Manhattan lockup."

remember Epstein's suicide watch downgraded and he gets a cpap machine equipped with electric cord

then suddenly dies
and no cameras

all just incompetence !

Howie Carr: Mueller’s hands dirty in old FBI frame-up

Roger Stone keeps talking about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s reprehensible behavior with the FBI in Boston way back when.

But I don’t think he or most people understand how bad Mueller’s actions were – “chilling,” is how a Clinton federal judge in 2006 described the former FBI director’s attempts to cover up a massive frame-up by Boston G-men decades earlier.

For the record, Mueller did not railroad four innocent men into prison – two onto death row – for a Chelsea murder they did not commit back in 1965.

That frame job was handled by the Boston office of the FBI, where at one point at least six G-men were taking payoffs from organized crime. That information came from serial killer Stevie Flemmi, who last summer admitted in federal court to taking part in 50 murders.


Everyone knew the four men were innocent, but the FBI wanted them to rot in prison, so the scandal would not be revealed. In the 1980s, two U.S. attorneys in Boston wrote letters to the state demanding that the innocent men not be released, but Mueller, an interim U.S. attorney in 1986-87, did not write one. (At least I couldn’t find one.)

Making sure the innocent men remained in prison was mostly handled by two of the G-men on the mobsters’ payroll, Zip Connolly and John “Vino” Morris, who made sure they left no paper trails. They were hit men with badges — Morris set up a double murder for Whitey Bulger in 1982 in Southie, after which Vino was promoted to director of the FBI training academy in Quantico.

Meanwhile, Zip is doing 40 years in a Florida prison for another gangland hit, in Miami, set up by the same crooked fed who set up the 1965 frame-up.

This is the world of “law enforcement” that Robert Mueller operated in. Not everyone was crooked – just everyone who mattered.

Fast forward to 2006. Mueller is now the FBI director.


After 35 years in the can, two of the four innocent men are dead, the other two have finally been freed. The four men or their estates are suing the feds for wrongful imprisonment. It is not a frivolous lawsuit – they will eventually win a judgment of $102 million.

The plaintiffs – the victims – are trying to get the necessary information from the crooked FBI now run by Mueller about how they were framed. But Mueller absolutely stonewalls the release of the information.

Here’s a show-cause order I discovered last year from U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner, who presided over the civil case. The FBI was refusing to turn over the exonerating evidence to either the plaintiffs or the Justice Department, which was defending the FBI after its frame up.

Mueller’s stonewalling, Gertner wrote, was a “serious problem.”

“This is a case about, inter alia, informant abuse, about the failure to disclose exculpatory evidence bearing on the innocence of the four plaintiffs, about FBI agents allegedly ‘hiding the ball,’ not disclosing critical information that would have exonerated the plaintiffs, and not doing so, for 40 years.”

Think about that again – for 40 years, ever since the night of the murder, the FBI had known that these four guys were innocent, and yet they never stepped up to identify the real killers, because they were FBI rats. And Mueller’s FBI was prolonging the cover-up, the judge wrote.

“Given those accusations,” she wrote, “the position the FBI is taking is chilling … This Court is not remotely satisfied.”

Six days after Mueller was threatened with contempt, the feds filed this: “This matter has been brought to the personal attention of the Director of the FBI… (the innocent men and the DOJ) have been provided with unredacted copies of the FBI documents.”

And all it took to bring Mueller around to doing the right thing was the threat of a contempt citation by an ultra-liberal federal judge who went to Yale Law School with the Clintons.

Of course, that wasn’t the first time Mueller’s FBI tried to broom the scandal of the four framed men. In 2002, Mueller directed the G-men to oppose state pardons for the four men because the FBI’s own evidence that exonerated them was merely “fodder for cross-examination.”

Despite the FBI’s knowledge that the men, including Peter Limone, were innocent, Mueller’s FBI claimed to a state board that the incontrovertible exculpatory evidence “does not necessarily mean, however, that Limone or any of the other defendants is innocent – it merely means that they are entitled to a new trial.”

By the way, one of the innocent men, Louie Greco, was in Florida the night of the murder he was falsely convicted of. One of the crooked Boston FBI agents (who died in prison in Oklahoma while facing murder charges in another gangland hit) later bragged to a local gangster about their brilliant railroad:

“How does Louie Greco like going from Miami to death row? He wasn’t even there.”

This is your FBI, the organization that Bob Mueller was – and still is – trying to protect from being exposed as irredeemably corrupt.

Good luck, Roger Stone. You’re going to need it, despite your not guilty plea Tuesday.

Remember that Mueller was supposed to get Trump, and the media was pushing the narrative that Mueller was the embodiment of honor and integrity.

Whitey Bulger was in a position to counter that narrative with ugly stories of Boston corruption.

So he got a sudden transfer to a violent BOP facility and placed in general population to silence him forever.

Not accidental.

Keep in mind that inmates being aware of the movements of ANY inmate, much less one of such serious security concerns as Whitey Bulger is a MAJOR security breach.

This was a set-up from the jump, and at high levels within the DOJ.

US Green Initiatives Benefit Top Officials’ Family Members With Ties to China: Cybersecurity Expert

As the sweeping Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) (pdf) seeks to spend some $369 billion toward energy and climate programs over the next 10 years, those green initiatives will mostly benefit family members of top officials with ties to the Chinese regime, according to Rex Lee, a cybersecurity adviser at My Smart Privacy.

“There’s concern … that potentially lawmakers and or their family members stand to benefit [greatly] from legislation that they have influence over and are creating policy and making laws in Washington DC,” Lee told the “China in Focus” program on NTD News, the sister media of The Epoch Times.

To prove this argument, he pointed to Tony Podesta, the brother of former Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta who recently joined the Biden administration to serve as a senior adviser on “clean energy innovation and implementation.”

John Podesta was tapped to “oversee implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act’s expansive clean energy and climate provisions and will chair the President’s National Climate Task Force in support of this effort,” the White House said on Sept. 2.

Yet, Tony Podesta, Lee said, “represents Huawei and their lobbying efforts go directly back to the White House, which means that … he has a direct line to [President] Joe Biden.”

“Huawei … is allowed to market in the United States as a result of having some of Trump and Obama’s executive orders repealed by the Biden administration,” he added.

The U.S. Department of Commerce officials in 2021 granted applications worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Chinese tech company Huawei—which was blacklisted under the Trump administration over national security concerns—to buy chips for its auto supply business.

“I think this is happening with green technology, as well … if you look at the lobbying efforts from the solar panel, panel manufacturers out of China, as well as the battery manufacturers out in China,” Lee opined.

The other conflict of interest that Lee further pointed out, arises from a lithium refining company in Pittsburgh, which has Paul Pelosi Jr., the son of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), as a member of its Advisory Board.

Another company named by Lee is BHR, a Chinese private equity firm, in which Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden held a 10 percent stake as of last May, according to company records.

BHR is reportedly backed by major state financial institutions such as the Bank of China and the China Development Bank Capital.

Lee said that it is concerning when “these family members are going to benefit or these families or these lawmakers are going to benefit financially from the laws that they’re legislating.”

Energy Dependence
With Democrats rolling out plans to ban gas-powered cars, the demand for materials to produce EV batteries such as lithium and cobalt, is expected to surge.

That increasing demand would make America become even more energy dependent on China, according to the expert.

“Ninety-five percent of cobalt mining is done in Africa through Chinese companies that have worked with the governments in Africa to mine the cobalt over there,” Lee said.

“Sixty-two percent of lithium will flow back through China as well,” he added.

BYD Company, the Chinese electric car and battery giant, had reached an agreement to acquire six lithium mines in Africa, according to a May 2021 report from China’s The Paper.

Lee further called for Americans to raise the issue of these lobbying efforts with their lawmakers.

“You can look up what companies are lobbying what laws and then write your lawmaker about these things … and hold your lawmaker accountable,” Lee said.

“We shouldn’t allow any foreign company … any companies from other countries to lobby. And that in itself is a threat to the United States and our ability to compete, much less let companies from adversarial nations such as China and Russia,” he said.

The Epoch Times reached out to Pelosi’s office and the Biden administration for comment.
