Deutsche Bank to pay $150 million penalty for transactions with Jeffrey Epstein, 2 foreign banks
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

#1  Notice if you will, the complete absence of the term "money laundering." Oh yes, and then there's the almost laughable "German banker lack of oversight" and attention to detail. If you have made some sort of mental connection between these foreign transactions and intelligence source operations, you are obviously a deranged conspiracy theorist.

All tidy and cleaned up now for a paltry $150. Financial 'damage control,' amazing, isn't it ?


USA Today - Deutsche Bank to pay $150 million for dealings with Jeffrey Epstein, foreign banks

New York regulators faulted Deutsche Bank for a lack of oversight, saying the bank ignored a wide variety of red flags after taking on Epstein's accounts in 2013 despite him previously pleading guilty to prostitution-related charges involving a minor.

Among the suspicious Deutsche Bank transactions, according to DFS:

  • Numerous payments to alleged Epstein co-conspirators who aided in his sexual abuse
  • Nearly $7 million in settlement cost, as well as $6 million in legal costs for Epstein and his co-conspirators
  • Various payments to Russian models and women with eastern European names, as well as rent and tuition payments
  • More than $800,000 in cash withdrawals over four years

    When Epstein was charged with sex trafficking in 2019, he was accused of systematically grooming and abusing young women, many of them minors. His close associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, was arrested last week on federal charges accusing her of rounding up young women for Epstein's sex-trafficking operation.

    One of his bank accounts, belonging to an Epstein trust known as "The Butterfly Trust," made regular payments to three co-conspirators and a number of women with eastern European names.

    When Deutsche Bank inquired about the payments, Epstein and his team said the payments were to employees and friends. The bank at the time was aware that payments were made to one person who was previously accused but never charged as a co-conspirator, but still approved the transactions, according to the settlement.

    The settlement, known as a "consent order," was signed by New York regulators and representatives of Deutsche Bank and its affiliates.

    "deranged conspiracy theorist." O.K. But recently, there have been far too many conspiracies theories proven to be actual conspiracies.

    $150 million. Epstein, a simple math teacher who became an investment genius was juggling large amounts of money. He had little St. James Island. He had the ranch in New Mexico where he was promoting eugenics and trying to breed super humans. He had the largest apartment in New York. All these were worth millions.

    But the kicker is that he only had one billionaire client in Ohio.

    School Board Member melts down because white man held a brown baby

    in New York somewhere

    partial transcript below

    "We had over 100 parents write you [Maron] a letter explaining why a member of this council was extraordinarily offensive and racist during a meeting . . . A member of this council was racist and I did nothing and I'm ashamed I did nothing and I can sit here during a public meeting and say I'm sorry, I made a mistake, I didn't speak out verbally when multiple times during the meeting one of the members engaged in behavior that made me ache and hurt for the non-white people that were logged in."

    What was the offensive behavior?

    Said council member, during the meeting, had a family member visiting, with a child "of color" (his nephew/a family friend – it isn't clear), as they say, and held that child on his lap during the meeting, saying "my living room is integrated."

    #12  One has to understand that these communist campaigns are never about the purported issues.

    The goal is to keep the populace in a permanent state of terror and insecurity.

    Even if the subject of a totalitarian regime meticulously obeys the draconian and unjust rules he can never be secure in any rights and assets, however meager.

    This is always about total obedience brought on by permanent terror.

    This is why discussing the merits of communist complaints is futile.

    As long as the regime hasn't been established in earnest, the proper counter strategy is uncompromising defiance by unapologetically exercising each and every civil and human right.

    They're just a bunch of sadistic megalomaniacs demanding absolute power, and our absolute submission.

    -Short Attention Span Theater-
    Lt. Col. Vindman Retires from Military; Impeachment Witness Blames Trump
    [Breitbart] Lt. Col.
    Sausage
    Alexander Vindman, a key witness in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, announced his retirement from the U.S. military on Wednesday, blaming Trump for shortening his military career.

    Vindman, a Purple Heart recipient in the Iraq War, had worked at the National Security Council (NSC) and heard the telephone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July which Democrats claimed Trump coerced his counterpart to interfere in the 2020 presidential election by launching investigations into Joe Biden.
    So now Tammy Duckworth (D- Ill Hates America) is left holding the bag. Nice play, idiot

    -Signs, Portents, and the Weather-
    After sending 1000s of COVID patients into nursing homes, New York blames deaths on 'infected staff'
    [Just The News] New York officials issue a report this week concluding that the high number of coronavirus deaths in state care facilities was the result of infected workers, not sick residents, spreading the contagion.

    New York has face sharp criticism over the past several months for its policy of allowing COVID-19-positive patients to return to nursing homes before they were declared free of the virus.

    Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state policy of allowing residents to return to elderly-care facilities was in line with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, PolitiFact in May rated that claim "mostly false," pointing out the state appeared to pressure nursing homes to take COVID-19 patients regardless of whether they could properly house them.

    The report by the New York Department of Health states that "an analysis of the timing between known nursing home staff infections and nursing home fatalities indicates that they are correlated." It also states that "the peak number of nursing home staff reporting COVID-19 symptoms occurred 23 days prior to the date of the peak nursing home fatalities."

    The data "does not support [the] assertion" that infected patients were the spreaders of the disease, the department argues.

    "Nursing home resident fatalities peaked on April 8, 2020," the report also states. "The peak of nursing home admissions from hospitals did not occur until April 14, 2020, a week after peak nursing home fatalities — suggesting the policy was not the cause."

    The report also finds that "most patients readmitted to nursing homes were likely not infectious," claiming that they would likely have spent enough time in the hospital to have entered a non-infectious stage of the disease.

    Data also "do not show a consistent relationship between admissions and increased mortality," the report says, adding that "there were cases where nursing homes did not admit any COVID-positive patients, yet still had a high number of COVID-related deaths."

    The report states that any staff who spread the disease did so "through no fault of their own," insofar as they would have been unaware they were infectious while working.

    Ilhan Omar Calls for 'Dismantling' America's 'Economy and Political System' to Root Out 'Oppression'
    [PJ] In a speech at the Minnesota State House on Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) called for the "dismantling" of America’s "economy and political system" in an effort to root out "oppression." She insisted that any wealth disparity between blacks and whites is the result of oppression and urged her fellow Democrats to "tear down systems of oppression" in various sectors of American society.

    Omar began her remarks by attacking Minnesota Republicans for refusing to pass the Democrats’ radical criminal justice reform bill, and then moved on to other claims of "systemic racism."

    "We can’t stop at criminal justice reform or policing reform for that matter," Omar said. "We are not merely fighting to tear down the systems of oppression in the criminal justice system, we are fighting to tear down systems of oppression that exist in housing, in education, in health care, in employment, in the air we breathe."

    "In America today, white families have 42 percent more wealth than black families," she argued. "We are speaking to the fact that homeownership rates are nearly twice as high for white families than they are for black families."

    Omar also argued that "environmental racism is real," claiming that black people suffer worse than white people when a natural disaster hits. She noted that the coronavirus pandemic has done more damage in the black community. "When America gets a cold, black communities get pneumonia," she said. "Because I lost my own father to the coronavirus, I see the pain and the havoc it’s wrecking on black communities in Minneapolis."

    Then she delivered the telling lines about "dismantling" the "economic and political system" that is based on "profit."

    #14  IIRC, it was Bubba who sent the troops to Somalia, although not enough of them to avoid the Blackhawk Down situation. Typical of a Democrat to send troops into harm's way with inadequate numbers and firepower.

    IIRC, that was when people over there were starving because of a famine and warlords were stealing UN food shipments.

    You try to help them and this is what you get. But no worries. If Omar has her way, the collectivization of all those capitalist American farms will cause a famine here so there will be none left over for Somali famine relief.

    Tucker Carlson: We Cannot Let Democrats Run This Country Because They Hate It
    [BREITBART] Monday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson opened his show by giving President Donald Trump
    ...Oh, noze! Not him!...
    ’s speech at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota high marks. He then pointed to the Democrat backlash and concluded that Democrats and their allies in the media hate the country.

    He alluded to remarks made by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
    ...When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'...
    and Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) to bolster that point. Carlson then posed the question: Could the left in America lead a country that it hates?

    "So what to make of all of this," Carlson said. "It’s long been considered out-of-bounds to question a person’s patriotism. It’s a very strong charge, and we try not ever to make it. But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can’t be avoided — these people actually hate America. There’s no longer a question about that. And yet paradoxically, at the same time, they desperately want to control America more than anything. And that leads to the most basic of all questions: Can you really lead a country that you hate? Ask yourself, what kind of parent would you be if you hated your children?"
