Response to malaise (Reply #24)

28. I wonder how they were revealed. They probably work through Brit.Virgin Islands

and other tax haven laundering banks. Wonder, too, if they set up shells in Wilmington, DE, of businesses that buy up real estate and legitimate businesses in the U.S.

Of note: the 214,000 entities identified in the Panama Papers, about one half of them are located in the British Virgin Islands. I think there's a photo of the names, or we can link the publishing of the Papers on the nets.

Entities. I hate the shadiness of that word.

It's as if Americans can't know our legitimate businesses from the illegitimate anymore. No wonder our politicians appear so confused and unwilling to trace the sources of their dark money. Or that's their story.

So far, $7.35 MILLION WAS ACCEPTED FROM LEONARD BLAVATNIK, PUTIN OLIGARCH BY:

Mitch McConnell $2.5 M

Marco Rubio $1.5 M

Scott Walker $1.1 M

Lindsey Graham $800,000

John Kasich $250,000

Sources: FEC and OpenSecrets.org

Len Blavatnik, considered to be one of the richest men in Great Britain, holds dual citizenship in the U.S. and the U.Ků.

Blavatnik's got ongoing relationships with Russian oligarchs close to Putin, particularly Oleg Deripaska, whose aluminum business sits right in Moscow Mitch's Kentucky. Oleg's probably got use of any of McConnell's seven secure offices in Kentucky to "do business" with his Russian group back home. Hell, he probably uses the same unsecure phones Trump does, the whole lot of that Fifth Column updating to FSB Boss Putin.

This "settling in" through McConnell should be worrisome for Trump and the six GOP leaders who took Blavatnik's money during the 2016 presidential campaign. But if it is, they hide it well. Maybe that's why no one in media has noticed this. Or maybe they're afraid to get near it. If Kentuckians and Americans have a clue, no damn body's saying a damn thing.

Oleg Deripaska is the founder and majority owner of RUSAL, the world's second largest aluminum company, based in Russia. Len Blavatnik owns a significant stake in RUSAL and served on its Board until two days after Donald Trump was elected.

The dance between UK and Russia has a looong story, one major point being with The Cambridge Five, UK spies for Russia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambridge_Five

It could be one of the secret reasons UK's leadership and the Queen herself are not so concerned about getting out of the EU, with its own Russian insurgencies. There's more at stake for the safety of the monarch and banks than media analyses we've read so far.

It's been the stuff of novels and movies, but sometimes writers can only convey the details of intelligence, corruption and international skullduggery by putting it in a "fictional" story.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambridge_Five

Side note: Speaking of movies and novels, I've learned a little more about Russia/Brit/Ukraine skullduggery from reading Tom Clancy's Command Authority, (his Jack Ryan series) that has SO much intel in it about Ukraine, Russia's methods, UK wealth and financial "consulting." And this novel is from six years ago!

This corruption tentacle has been growing around us since WWI, Bretton Woods, and the shedding of Keynes' plan to regulate banks of settlement. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) became an object of scrutiny when the Norwegian delegation put forth evidence that the BIS was involved in war crimes. Keynes' "bancor" that would create trade and debt balances, got squashed by Harry Dexter White, and so the IMF got modeled from what his US cohorts -- and probably the central banks of settlement -- wanted. I can't even believe the level of shady thinking they did.

I guess I'm rambling, but this is the level of mess democratic peoples find themselves in.

And why these "entities" fight so hard against candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren -- whatever their mere political flaws-- who threaten their existing wealth hoarding structures.
