That’s not bullshit……….
This is Bullshit – Bullshit Australia!
At this stage of the game it simply begs the question of whether it is the policy of the current Australian LNP government, headed by PM Scott Morrison, to completely trash the competitive basis of the Australian economy and to inflict lasting economic pain on all Australians.
Further to that, if we think it was an ALP government (Gillard’s) which OK’d the Gladstone white elephant, and governments of both flavours which have looked the other way while Australian gas which once meant amongst the cheapest gas prices in the world for Sydney and Melbourne, and therefore cheap electricity, has become about the world’s most expensive – while both sides of politics try to nudge coal seam gas and fracking on a population all too aware of the environmental and health costs this entails – then the following question simply arise.
Does Australia’s body politic – both mainstream sides including the Lberal Party, the National Party and the Australian Labor Party – have at its core an economic policy of completely trashing the competitive basis of the Australian economy and to inflict lasting economic pain on all Australians?
Have Australian public sector data gathering, regulatory, and policy formulation organisations and departments been so corrupted that they do not identify the above? Have they been so neutered that they cannot report the above to Australian politicians?
And at that point
Are Australian political and public sector elites acting in the best interests of Australians? Are they accountable for acting in the interests and explaining their actions to Australians to a sufficient degree enabling Australians to feel that their politicians and senior policy makers are accountable to them? ….and if they are not, How can they be made more so?
It is time for open revolt.
I think it is time for a new political party which I would call putatively Bullshit Australia – the party to identify and deal with Australian Bullshit and to promote informed and data backed decisionmaking throughout the political and administrative bodies of Australia, and to hold politicians, public officials and corporate interests to account for past decisions made, starting with a permanent standing Australian Corruption Commission.
(Edit removed members names)
I propose we aim initially – the next Federal election – at trying to get up 4 Senators from each state. I propose we get as far as we can up the nose of the current ‘elites’ by constipating their policy platforms in the Senate. I think/suspect we currently lack women…….
Key Slogan ‘This is Bullshit!’ Men and Women of Australia, Have you ever wondered about your energy costs ………‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why your salary hasnt gone up in donkeys years? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you work in a large organisation wondering why psychopaths inhabit the upper floors and you get stuck with meaningless KPIs? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you worry about if your kids will get a decent education in a government school while ‘elite’ private schools get more funding from all levels of government than your kids school does? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why your governments keep banging on about immigration needed for skills shortages when kids with Master degrees are joining the military as base grade grunts because there is nothing else for them to get into? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why Australia, the worlds largest gas exporter has the worlds most expensive gas in Sydney and Melbourne? ‘This is Bullshit!’ Do you wonder why foreign nationals traipsed on in and laundered money through Australian real estate so your kids need to move to Campbelltown to be able to afford a house, and hack out a 2 hour commute to a peanut paying gig every day? ‘This is Bullshit!’
Every time a mainstream politicians opens his mouth (or her mouth) in the public domain, just point out ‘This is Bullshit!’
Draft Policy Platform – for discussion/arguing about/ data provision I propose that the Bullshit Australia and the Macrobusiness cognoscenti run a full campaign in the upcoming election to get ourselves elected as the swing players, running on a platform revolving around (with negotiations/debate/argy bargy) the below…….

2020.09.18 13:48 DebatePopular189 I am 26 years old and make $88k/year, live in Indianapolis and work as a financial planner.

Section 1: Assets and Debt
I make $88k/year + quarterly bonuses (anywhere from $5 to $10k/year). My husband normally makes about $90k between base and bonus but it has been reduced 20% during COVID. Everything is joint, so I will share his expenses as well to make it as fair as possible.
Roth 401(k) - $54,500
My husband’s 401(k) - $78,000
Our 529 - $1,300
HSA - $16,700
Equity in our home - about $45k.
Savings - $25,000
Checking - $4,000 (I keep just enough for bills, etc.)
Credit Card Debt: $0 (pay off every month)
Student loan debt: $0 (we paid off about $40k over the last four years)
Car loan - about $1,000 left
HVAC (we just had to replace) - about $8,750
Section 2: Income
My net paycheck (every 2 weeks) - $1,945
My husband’s net paycheck (2x/month) - $1,501 (during pay cut)
I did not come from money. My parents divorced when I was in highschool and my Mom then made minimum wage. I paid my way through college by working, getting scholarships, and taking out about $20k in student loan debt. I moved to Indy for the job with $100 in my bank account.
I’ve worked at the same company since I graduated and love what I do. I started out making $41k. I have received merit raises and a few other raises for completing various financial certifications. I am now a senior financial planner and have assumed a more managerial role. My firm paid for all of my certifications (about $10k) and I am in the process of getting my EA (enrolled agent, an IRS/tax certification). I’ve passed one test and have two more to go. I will receive another $3k/year raise after completing.
Section 3 Expenses
Giving - $1,300month (goes to church and two missionaries)
Mortgage - $584 (yes Indy is cheap and we love it)
Utilities - about $150/month
Internet - $80 (we just got past our promotional period...urgggg)
Coffee subscription - $50 (we get four bags of coffee sent to us every month from a local roaster)
Phones - $50/month for both of us
HVAC - $182 (0% financing for 4 years)
Netflix - Like $3 (we share it with a few other people)
Disney + - $7
Car - $150
Patreon - $5 (I support Crime Junkies and am obsessed)
Amazon - $120/year
Roth 401(k) contribution - $576/pay
My husband’s 401(k) contribution - $436/pay
My husband’s HSA (for both us) contribution - $243/pay
Health/dental/vision (from husband’s pay) - $43/pay
I want to address the elephant in the room before I get into my diary. Yes, we give a lot. No, we aren’t part of some crazy cult that requires we give a certain % or something. We love to give, we have the means to give, and we have made lifestyle choices to allow us to give.
Day 1 (Friday)
7:00 - I wake up and the dog is waiting at our bedroom door to go out. We leave him in our bedroom at night (with his dog bed) or else he walks around the house all night like the grim reaper.
7:30 - Off to work with my coffee and oatmeal in hand. I’m wearing my yellow sweater today. I love mustard yellow. Funny back story, I once wore this sweater to an event in downtown Indy and got “catcalled”. The guy kept following me, calling me the “bitch in the ugly sweater”. I now love this sweater even more and wear it with a sense of pride. Today is definitely my day.
12:00 - LUNCH! I make myself a quick sandwich and head home. I work from home a few afternoons each week.
2:00 My afternoon is filled with talking with clients on the phone, answering emails, and training/providing feedback for my associate financial planner. He preps meetings for me and I review them before presenting to the client.
5:00 - Done with the work for the day and I prep dinner - various fall squashes and pork roasted in the oven. M (the husband) and I take turns with dinner. This is my week and next week will be his week to prep and cook. Not gonna lie, I love getting cooking breaks.
7:30 - M and I play cribbage for hours (any cribbage players out there?) and we also order a new dog bed. Our dog’s current bed is super thin and old so we are majorly spoiling him with temperpedic...I don’t think our own mattress is this nice. - $72.75
12:00 - How are we still playing cribbage?
Total: $72.75
Day 2 (Saturday)
9:00 - We sleep in and M runs to Aldi to get a few breakfast-type foods, milk, cream cheese, etc. - $17.45 We eat breakfast, sip coffee, and of course play more cribbage. He wins this time. I’ll get him next time.
11:00 - I whip up some chipotle style chicken bowls and include some tomatoes from our garden.
12:00 - Wash the dog which is always an experience since he absolutely hates water. He now smells like hibiscus and I somehow smell like a wet dog.
1:00 - Scone time! I love to bake and usually I only do so on the weekends. M has a gluten allergy. Today, I’m trying a new recipe from King Arthur. I will link it if it’s good. I make two variations, cinnamon with cream cheese frosting and blueberry, walnut, lemon zest. And let’s be honest, I put the cream cheese frosting on everything. The more the merrier.
3:00 - Ok, these scones are awesome: https://www.kingarthurbaking.com/recipes/gluten-free-whole-grain-scones-recipe
4:00 - I tried on some clothes that just arrived from J Crew Factory. And as my doctor recently told me, “You’ve gained some weight, but you are still in a healthy range.” Not sure how to take that. Half the clothes fit, half will go back. I then ran to Goodwill and dropped off some donations and also found a few new fall items ($36.05). I try to buy about half of my clothes second hand, and the other half new.
7:00 - M and I hang outside with our dog and ducks. Yes, we have ducks. We talk to our neighbors and then play yet again more cribbage and eat pizza. $16.19
Total $69.69
Day 3 - Sunday
10:30 - Wake up, M makes cappuccinos, we eat breakfast, and watch our church’s livestream.
11:30 - I try on the Goodwill clothing from yesterday and half of it doesn’t fit, specifically the bottoms. Then I try on my jeans from last year and again, they don’t fit. I feel so defeated and on the verge of tears. I know I’m at a healthy weight, but I find it mentally very hard to not fit into stuff I’ve had since college and then to navigate the crazy world of women’s sizing. I struggled with some disordered eating in highschool. I’ve always been skinny but with a healthy appetite and I would watch people eat way less than me or just eat salads and then I felt insecure that I had to do the same. News alert, if your body is hungry, eat something! I go onto Everlane, a website I’ve looked at but never actually bought anything. I buy two pairs of jeans, but in two sizes each. I checked and they have free returns. Ordering this many clothes is completely not normal for me. I typically can go close to a year without ordering anything. $217.
1:00 - We head out to Costco to buy toilet paper, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, gluten free flour, seltzer, etc. We also run to Menards for more duck coup supplies and then finally Meijer for weekly groceries. $285.79
5:00 - We get back and are starving. M makes some quesadillas and we enjoy a quiet evening walking the dog, playing games, and surfing Youtube.
Total: $502.79
Day 4 - Monday
7:15 - Definitely slept in. It’s such a gorgeous morning! I make some of my daily steel cut oatmeal, brew coffee, and am out the door by 7:45.
8:00 - I pick up a PSL on the way to work for my admin as a surprise. This is her favorite drink and it finally feels like fall this morning. I don’t get anything since I brought my own coffee. I had to re-load my card. $10
9:00 - I’m bombarded by emails and questions from my associate planner. It’s definitely a Monday. Coffee, please work.
12:00 - I eat a turkey and swiss cheese sandwich with a clementine at my desk. I do take a walk around the parking lot because it is so nice! If you aren’t from Indy, our weather goes from like 90 to 0 overnight it seems.
3:00 - It’s now the time of day when I snack on an apple with peanut M&Ms. I believe in balance. I also work in compliance in our firm (small firm, several hats) and right now we are undergoing a mock audit. Finance is a highly regulated industry so it's expensive and time consuming for our smaller firm to keep up with it all. I spend several hours collecting requested data.
5:30 - I head home and M makes cauliflower pizza for dinner tonight. I never get tired of pizza.
7:00 - We spend hours working on the duck coop and then M and I sit outside, drink beers, and just enjoy the evening. We are both trying to make it a practice to just sit and talk, without the distraction of Netflix or our phones nearby.
Total: $10
Day 5 - Tuesday
7:15 - Definitely slept in again. M makes coffee for me because it is our 2-year wedding anniversary. It’s the little things. We both decided not to do gifts this year because we really don’t need anything.
12:30 - Is this now a food diary? I eat the same lunch as yesterday, a turkey sandwich with a clementine. Kinda sad, but easy to prepare during the week. I enjoy a quick walk outside.
1:00 - I’m knee deep in compliance but I know I need to get back to the more financial planning side of my job. My associate prepared an estimate for a client’s section 1231 taxable gain from the sale of a rental property. Then, I responded to another client about 529 questions. Going into this job, I thought financial planning was more about investments (which it can be), but there are more nuances and aspects to holistic planning than I ever knew.
4:00 - Head home and curl my crazy hair, put on a cute dress, and then we grab dinner at a really good pizza place with a pretty view of downtown. We eat and sip beer outside on the patio. Yes, I love pizza. No, I do not normally have pizza three times in a week! Just worked out this way and I’m not mad about it. We tip 30% because we know how hard people working in the service industry have been financially hit during COVID. $52
9:00 - The rest of the evening we just lazily lie around and watch parks and rec, which I’ve seen like 1,000 times. It never gets old. The Indiana jokes and stereotypes are honestly fairly accurate. Except, Leslie goes on a date in season 2 to the Indianapolis aquarium. We don’t have an aquarium. Fact checked.
Total: $52
Day 6 - Wednesday
7:00 - Switching it up today, no oatmeal! I eat the last of our scones and drink my coffee while staring at emails on my work computer. This morning I’m running calculations to fairly withhold taxes based on variable incomes for two separated clients.
11:30 - Just scheduled my next EA exam and paid the $182 fee. Work will reimburse. I schedule my exams to motivate me to start studying and to make a plan. I’ve taken over 10+ tests for various certifications so I’ve developed a system for studying that works for me. If I don’t have a deadline, I just don’t study.
12:00 - Head home to work from home in the afternoon and eat leftovers. Again, it’s a gorgeous day so I’m able to sit outside on my laptop.
4:30 - I take a few minutes to make my “plan of attack” for my next EA test. I know this sounds crazy, but I like to plan what I’m studying each day on a calendar. I plan out break days, catch-up days, and give myself a few weeks to review all the material after I’ve finished my first reading. I like going in with a plan because then I don’t have a lingering sense of guilt if I’m not studying. If I built in a break, I can take the break.
5:30 - M grills some fish and roasts asparagus (oh, he ran to Aldi to pick up fish and beer earlier for $15.03). I then head over to my friend’s house to catch-up with a few other ladies. There are like five of us outside. It’s so good to catch-up.
9:30 - I get home and talk to M for a few minutes. We shower and head to bed earlier tonight.
Total: $15.03
Day 7 (Thursday)
7:30 - This seems redundant at this point, yes I have oatmeal and coffee while checking my working email.
11:30 - I just found out that my Q3 bonus will be paid tomorrow! I’m on track this year for a 12% bonus of my base (about $10.5k gross). Also, I took a few seconds to donate to my coworkers’ charity that he is volunteering for. $50
12:00 - I stop at Office Max and get a chore chart laminated so we can use dry erase markers. M and I argued last week about chores. While I don’t expect a perfect 50/50 division of chores, I told him I would like more help than what he is providing. He agreed he needs to contribute more towards house work and I agreed that my expectations can be out of line. I will often ask him to do something and then get frustrated when he doesn’t immediately drop everything and do it (just typing this makes me realize how ridiculous I can be). Thus, the chore chart. We can agree beforehand on who’s doing what. Does anyone else have a system that works for them? $2.14
5:00 - Head home and eat dinner with M. We walk the dog, enjoy more beautiful weather (how is this possible in Indy?!?), and sip some Aldi beer on our patio. We work on cleaning up the house (laundry, dishes, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom).
Total: $52.14
Weekly Total: $774.40
End of Week Reflections:
This is WAY more money than I typically spend in one week. I don’t usually buy $200 worth of jeans (although I will return at least half since I bought multiple sizes)! We also only go to Costco about once a month to stock-up on the bigger items (like laundry detergent, etc.). Regardless, it was sobering to realize how much the spending can add-up. I’m blessed that we have stable income, but I also don’t want to thoughtlessly spend money just because we have it. We try to be intentional in what we spend money and conscious of when we eat out.

Tories accused of anti-competitive business behaviour: Treasury Board secretary told Hydro not to bid on data network contract, documents reveal
By: Larry Kusch Posted: 09/14/2020 7:00 PM
The provincial government discouraged Manitoba Hydro from bidding on a lucrative data network contract that was slated for tender this year, a decision that came as a blow to small, local internet service providers who were hoping to piggyback on the Crown corporation's bid.
According to documents obtained through freedom of information legislation, the government made it known to Hydro president and CEO Jay Grewal in early January that company subsidiary Manitoba Hydro Telecom (MHT) was not to participate in a planned request for proposals.
The prize was a data network contract that provides inter-office data connectivity to more than 600 provincial offices, A 10-year agreement between the government and Bell MTS was set to expire this year. According to Hydro documents, the contract was worth between $12 million and $14 million annually.
Correspondence between senior Hydro officials reveals that provincial Treasury Board secretary Paul Beauregard, a former executive with both Manitoba Telecom Service Inc. and BCE/Bell Canada, was the senior government official who delivered the news.
In an email from Grewal to two of her senior officials dated Jan. 4 , the Hydro boss said she "tested" the idea of participating in the RFP with Treasury Board (a sub-committee of the provincial cabinet responsible for fiscal management) and "as anticipated, Paul B confirmed that we are not to participate."
Three days later, Sharon Harrald, a Hydro vice-president, passed on the news to Chris Mankewich, managing director of MHT, a business unit of Manitoba Hydro International Ltd.
"Paul Beauregard confirmed to (Grewal) that we (MHT) are not to participate in the Manitoba Network RFP (directly or indirectly as a 3rd party)," she wrote in an email.
As it turned out, the RFP was never issued. The government exercised an option in its agreement with Bell MTS to extend the contract for 30 months — from July 1, 2020 to Dec. 31, 2022.
Local small and medium telecommunications and internet service providers are worried that the provincial government appears to be shutting them out of business opportunities. A chance to receive spinoff business through the Manitoba Network contract never materialized. More recently, another door seemingly closed as Hydro declared that MHT would not be taking on new business while an RFP is underway to find a third-party manager for it.
"They (the Pallister government) obviously had a long-term policy or plan to implement a more private footprint for internet service provision in Manitoba that did not include Manitoba Hydro Telecom as the steward or gatekeeper of data services and fibre asset control," said David MacKay, executive director of the recently formed Coalition of Manitoba Internet Service Providers (C-MISP).
The government appears to be establishing an environment of "anti-competitive business behaviour," MacKay said.
"Competition keeps pricing down and it keeps service levels up. Without the competition we move more towards an environment of either privatization or, worse yet, complete monopoly," he said.
Manitoba Hydro did not respond to a request for comment before deadline.
Blake Robert, director of media relations and issues management for the provincial cabinet, said "it is incorrect to state that Manitoba Hydro was 'forbidden' from bidding" on the Manitoba Network contract.
"The reason for extending the Manitoba Network agreement was strictly due to timing and the fundamental change in what Manitoba may need from the Manitoba Network in the wake of the COVID pandemic," he said in an email.
"Cabinet determined that government needed more time to rethink Manitoba’s future needs with respect to the Manitoba Network, and that issuing and awarding an RFP in the middle of this pandemic would have resulted in not properly scoping our future needs."
Robert there is "no relationship" between the government's "request" that Manitoba Hydro Telecom pause entering into new deals and the decision to extend the current agreement for the Manitoba Network with Bell MTS.
He also denied that Beauregard, as a secretary to a committee of cabinet, is in any conflict of interest because of his past connections to Bell and MTS.
"Mr. Beauregard’s role in this instance was not in a decision-making capacity, it was to remind the CEO of (a) Crown Corporation of a previous decision of cabinet and was the subject of a cooperative process between central government and Hydro. Simply conveying the information presents no conflict of interest and in fact is a part of the expectations of Mr. Beauregard’s role," Robert wrote.
NDP MLA Adrien Sala, the party's Hydro critic, called the message from Beauregard to Grewal "a really ugly example of political interference in Manitoba Hydro by one of (Premier Brian) Pallister's hand-picked staff."
He said under the Crown Corporations Governance and Accountability Act, in effect since 2018, the government is required to make any directive to Hydro public within 30 days of issuing it, but it has apparently failed to do that.
In 2017, the same year Beauregard joined the government after serving as corporate secretary at MTS, Pallister told a legislative committee hearing that his new appointee would recuse himself on issues relating to his former employer, Sala said.
"The premier said on the record that Mr. Beauregard would not be involved in any decisions regarding Bell MTS, and now we know it's not true," the critic said.

2020.09.14 14:27 rusticgorilla Lost in the Sauce: GOP source has been a Russian agent for a decade

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
Housekeeping:

GOP source is Russian agent

The Treasury Department announced new sanctions against Andriy Derkach, a Ukrainian lawmaker, accusing him of being an "active Russian agent" who is part of Moscow's interference in the 2020 campaign. Derkach has been actively promoting discredited anti-Biden materials for many months, including meeting with Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani to hand over disinformation (picture).
Between May and July 2020, Derkach released edited audio tapes and other unsupported information with the intent to discredit U.S. officials, and he levied unsubstantiated allegations against U.S. and international political figures
These tapes were laundered through Giuliani to OANN, the Senate Homeland Security Committee (via Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson), Don Jr., and the president himself.
Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR) called out Sen. Johnson and Sen. Chuck Grassley (Chair of Senate Finance Cmte.) for collaborating with Derkach:
Derkach has been central in advancing the Russian disinformation that underpins Senate Republicans’ effort to smear Vice President Biden. For example, in April, the Republican chairmen of the Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs and Finance Committees requested information about purported calls between Vice President Biden and Ukrainian officials. Then in May edited excerpts of those same calls involving Biden were leaked by Derkach and Andrii Telizhenko, the Senate Republicans’ star witness.
...Senate investigations should not parrot conspiracy theories pushed by Russian agents under U.S. sanctions, and Senate Republicans should immediately abandon this blatantly political effort.

DHS Whistleblower

Last week, the House Intelligence Committee released a whistleblower complaint made by former acting Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy. Chairman Adam Schiff released a statement saying the complaint “outlines grave and disturbing allegations that senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials improperly sought to politicize, manipulate, and censor intelligence in order to benefit President Trump politically.”

On Russia

Page 10: Mr. Murphy made several protected disclosures between March 2018 and August 2020 regarding a repeated pattern of abuse of authority, attempted censorship of intelligence analysis and improper administration of an intelligence program related to Russian efforts to influence and undermine United States interests. The relevant officials at issue were Secretary Nielsen and Messrs. Wolf, Cuccinelli, Taylor, and Acting Deputy Director for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Kash Patel (“Mr. Patel”).
In May 2020, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told Murphy to “cease providing intelligence assessments on the threat of Russian interference in the United States, and instead start reporting on interference activities by China and Iran.” Wolf told Murphy those instructions came directly from White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien, according to Murphy, who said he refused to comply because “doing so would put the country in substantial and specific danger.”
In July 2020, DHS chief of staff John Gountanis intervened to stop publication of an intelligence bulletin warning about a Russian disinformation plot to “denigrate” the mental health of Joe Biden. On July 8, Murphy said, he met with Wolf, who told him that the intelligence notification should be “held” because it “made the President look bad.” After Murphy protested, Wolf excluded him from meetings about the notification, a draft of which was ultimately produced that Murphy felt minimized the actions of Russia.
The complaint details dozens of instances in which Murphy told his superiors about the abuses of power and political interference. The complaints either went nowhere or resulted in perceived retaliatory actions against Murphy. Many of these complaints were given to Kash Patel, former staffer to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who played a key role in a Republican effort to discredit Mueller’s and the FBI’s Russia probes.
  • Related: NSC’s top legislative affairs official, Virginia Boney, was removed and sent to the Commerce Department earlier this year because she kept pressing the White House to prioritize election security efforts — and specifically the threat posed by Russia. To date, there have been no traditional NSC Principals Committee meetings — with senior Cabinet officials and the president — on the subject of Russian interference this year.

On white supremacy

Page 14: During multiple meetings between the end of May 2020 and July 31, 2020, Mr. Murphy made protected disclosures to Messrs. Wolf and Cuccinelli regarding abuse of authority and improper administration of an intelligence program with respect to intelligence information on ANTIFA and “anarchist” groups operating throughout the United States.
Murphy alleges that Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli ordered him to modify intelligence assessments to make the threat of white supremacy “appear less severe” and include information on violent “left-wing” groups and Antifa. The reason given was “to ensure they matched up with the public comments by President Trump on the subject of ANTIFA and ‘anarchist’ groups.”
After Murphy refused to change a draft report warning of the threat posed by White supremacists, Wolf and Cuccinelli reportedly stopped the report from being finished.

On immigration and asylum

In Dec. 2019, Cuccinelli expressed frustration with intelligence reports detailing conditions in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, and accused "deep-state intelligence analysts" of compiling the information to undermine Trump's objectives regarding asylum.
Page 9: The intelligence reports were designed to help asylum officers render better determinations regarding their legal standards… Mr. Murphy defended the work in the reports, but Mr. Cuccinelli stated he wanted changes to the information outlining high levels of corruption, violence, and poor economic conditions in the three respective countries...
Mr. Cuccinelli ordered Messrs. Murphy and [former I&A Under Secretary David] Glawe to identify the names of the “deep state” individuals who compiled the intelligence reports and to either fire or reassign them immediately.
Murphy also alleges that DHS gave false information to Congress last year about the numbers of suspected terrorists crossing the southern border. At the time, administration officials were repeating a 4,000 figure in an effort to justify the government shutdown over Trump's border wall. The true number was actually six. A DHS spokeswoman pressured NBC to take down a story exposing the lie last year.

Response

Chairman Schiff has subpoenaed Murphy to testify before the Intelligence Cmte. on September 21. The Cmte. also seeks to interview high-level DHS officials including Matthew Hanna, chief of staff in Murphy's former post at DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis; the office's top official, Horace Jen; DHS chief of staff John Gountanis; and his deputy, Tyler Houlton.
The Senate Intelligence Cmte. issued a bipartisan request for all of the intelligence analyses that Murphy referenced in his complaint, as well as any notes and materials that fed into them. The House Homeland Security Cmte. issued a subpoena for testimony from Wolf at a hearing on Sept. 17, but DHS says that Wolf will not comply and offers Cuccinelli to testify instead. Also scheduled to be at the hearing: FBI Director Christopher Wray and Christopher Miller of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Russia still interfering

Facebook recently took down accounts and pages associated with a Russian influence operation posing as an independent news outlet. The operation published content described as “an attempt to build a left-wing audience and steer it away from Biden’s campaign, in the same way that the original IRA [Internet Research Agency] tried to depress progressive and minority support for Hillary Clinton in 2016.”
  • The same Russian operation tried and failed to infiltrate left-wing media outlets such as Jacobin, Truthout, and In These Times.
Bob Woodward reported that“the NSA and CIA have classified evidence the Russians had placed malware in the election registration systems of at least two Florida counties, St. Lucie and Washington. While there was no evidence the malware had been activated, Woodward writes, it was sophisticated and could erase voters in specific districts.”
  • Woodward’s book also notes that former director of national intelligence Dan Coats has "deep suspicions" that Russian President Vladimir Putin "had something" on President Trump, seeing "no other explanation" for the president's behavior.
Microsoft alerted SKDKnickerbocker, one of Biden’s main election campaign advisory firms, that suspected Russian state-backed hackers had gone after the company with a failed phishing attack.

DOJ, politicization, and resignations

A top aide to Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, federal prosecutor Nora Dennehy, resigned from the Justice Department and Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. Dannehy reportedly resigned “at least partly out of concern” that Trump and AG Barr were exerting improper political pressure on the team to release results before the November election.
Several officials said expectations had been growing in the White House and Congress that Mr. Barr would make public, ahead of the election, some kind of interim report or list of findings from Mr. Durham before he completed the investigation. Mr. Barr had wanted Mr. Durham’s team to move quickly, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Trump has publicly expressed impatience with the Durham investigation, saying there should be more prosecutions and disclosures of information that would damage his political rivals. “Bill Barr has the chance to be the greatest of all time, but if he wants to be politically correct, he’ll be just another guy, because he knows all the answers, he knows what they have, and it goes right to Obama and it goes right to Biden,” Trump said (clip).
Last month, Barr predicted “significant developments in the probe before the election” (clip) and he indicated the DOJ would not respect an informal policy against taking investigative steps 60 days before Election Day. It was for this exact reason that the Trump administration claimed it fired former FBI Director James Comey.
On Tuesday’s Fox News, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows appeared to claim that he has seen documents—relevant to U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe of the origins of the Russia investigation—which implicate several Trump and Obama administration officials in potentially illegal conduct.
  • Further reading: “Dannehy Resignation Confirms Barr’s Intent to Use Durham Probe for Political Ends,” Just Security.
Two other DOJ officials resigned last week:
Prosecutor John Choi resigned from Trump's law enforcement commission after expressing "serious" concerns that the intention of the commission was not to bridge the gap between communities of color and law enforcement.
Choi, a Democrat, said in his resignation letter that "it is now patently obvious ... that this process had no intention of engaging in a thoughtful and open analysis, but was intent on providing cover for a predetermined agenda that ignores the lessons of the past, furthering failed tough-on-crime policies that led to our current mass incarceration crisis and fueling divisions between our communities and our police officers."
Deputy Assistant AG David Morrell resigned on Friday, withdrawing from cases defending the government’s position on issues including the Census and the Portland protests.

The courts

A three-judge panel blocked the Trump administration from excluding undocumented immigrants from being counted in the census for apportionment. Trump’s order violates a statue saying apportionment must be based on everyone who is a resident of the United States.
District Judge Lucy Koh ordered the Trump admin. to produce internal documents connected to its sudden decision to end the 2020 Census count a month earlier. Two weeks ago, Koh temporarily blocked the bureau from winding down the count until a hearing set for Sept. 17.
Court-appointed adviser and retired judge John Gleeson slammed the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against Michael Flynn, calling it a "corrupt and politically motivated favor.” A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Sept. 29.
"In the United States, Presidents do not orchestrate pressure campaigns to get the Justice Department to drop charges against defendants who have pleaded guilty -- twice, before two different judges -- and whose guilt is obvious," Gleeson wrote.
"Yet that is exactly what has unfolded here," he added.
A judge denied a bid to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that Trump's inaugural committee and the Trump Organization misused nonprofit funds to enrich the president's family business. The suit, brought by Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine in January, alleges that the president's inaugural committee was aware that it was being overcharged for services at Trump's Washington hotel in 2017 and still spent over $1 million at the hotel.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced two settlements totaling $583,100 with Deutsche Bank to resolve investigations into violations of Ukraine-related sanctions. The resolution came as the bank hired “an old friend” of AG Barr to “help the bank navigate the political waters in Washington.”

Trump profiting

Federal spending records show that taxpayers have paid Trump’s businesses more than $900,000 since he took office. At least $570,000 came as a result of the president’s travel.
In addition to the rentals at Mar-a-Lago, the documents show that the Trump Organization charged daily “resort fees” to Secret Service agents guarding Vice President Pence in Las Vegas and in another instance asked agents to pay a $1,300 “furniture removal charge” during a presidential visit to a Trump resort in Scotland.
Additionally, the Trump Organization has received at least $3.8 million in fees from GOP groups for headlining a political event at one of his properties.
Last month, the Trump Organization received approval for a new trademark in Argentina, the third one in the country. Last November, Trump may have altered U.S. foreign policy to assist his company in obtaining approval for the two previous trademarks. “Shortly after the trademark opposition period ended in April 2018, the Trump administration lifted tariffs on steel and aluminum in Argentina. Once the trademarks were officially granted to his company in November of last year, Trump announced that he would reinstate the tariffs.”
Somehow, Ivanka Trump’s fashion business is still making money despite being shutdown. According to her latest financial disclosures, “All operations of the business ceased on July 31, 2018.” Also according to her latest financial disclosures, she made at least six figures from the trust holding that business in 2019.
We - American taxpayers - footed the bill for “anti-scale fencing” along the perimeter of the White House this summer. The wall, ostensibly to protect Trump from protesters, cost over $1 million. Trump has a history of charging taxpayers for barriers around his properties, including $17,000 for fencing around Mar-a-Lago and $12,000 for “privacy fencing” around Trump International golf resort.

Immigration news

About 8,800 unaccompanied children have been quickly expelled from the United States along the Mexico border under a pandemic-related measure that effectively ended asylum. In total, the Trump administration has expelled more than 159,000 people since March.
ICE officers on the West Coast wanted to suppress Black Lives Matter protests in DC. But they aren't allowed to travel on charter flights without detainees on board. So they brought some detainees with them. In the process, they fueled a massive, deadly COVID outbreak at the Virginia facility that infected over 300 detainees, killing one.
The Pentagon is restarting many domestic projects that were plundered by Trump for money to pay for his border wall. The decision to revive these domestic projects has provided cover for Republican senators who were criticized when their home states lost military construction projects to the president’s wall.

Graham warned Trump he would be raising the stakes from “playing $10 blackjack to $10,000-a-hand blackjack”. “This is over the top,” the senator said. “How about hitting someone a level below Suleimani, which would be much easier for everyone to absorb?”

We wrote to the DoT about Odisha's internet connectivity issues #4GforAll

https://preview.redd.it/gwnv41ch02m51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=26b0476ee1bd88da963472cff49d99a81cead433

tl;dr

We wrote to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to highlight how lack of access to reliable and fast 4G internet is affecting the people of Odisha. We specifically highlighted how this is affecting students in the state who now have to take extreme measures to access online classes during the pandemic. We asked them to ensure that the BharatNet Project, which aims to provide fast internet connectivity to the whole country, is operationalised according to pre-existing timelines so that these issues can be resolved.

Let’s talk about Odisha

The State of Odisha has long been failing to keep up with the national average when it comes to internet connectivity. According to a report by Diana Sahu, “tele-density in rural Odisha is 42.7 pc whereas in urban areas it was 171 pc.” She also referred to the Indian Telecom Services Performance Indicators reports by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, which state that, as on September 30, 2019, Odisha’s rural wireless tele-density stood at 59.5 pc against 145.3 pc in urban areas.
Out of Odisha’s total 32.8 million wireless internet subscribers, 21 million are in rural areas. As far as the internet through wireline or cable is concerned, of the total 0.23 million subscribers in Odisha, only 0.05 million are from rural areas. Rural Odisha’s wireline density is just 0.13 pc. Sahu concludes that “the share of internet subscribers per 100 individuals is just 29.5 pc in rural areas which is substantially below the national average.”

What is the situation now?

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to be dependent on the internet for access to basic necessities like government services and schemes, online education etc. In the present situation, lack of internet connectivity can cause extreme harms to any such affected area. We have been working consistently on the issues surrounding lack of internet connectivity in -
  1. Andaman & Nicobar Islands which suffers from a lack of digital infrastructure; and
  2. Jammu & Kashmir which has been tolerating internet shutdowns for more than a year now.
In both these areas, we have focused our advocacy efforts on how a lack of internet connectivity affects the daily lives and livelihoods of ordinary citizens. In Odisha as well, we have been following how the lack of digital infrastructure is affecting its citizens.
The COVID-19 pandemic has aggravated structural disparities between rural and urban areas. It has had a critical impact on the education of children, especially the disadvantaged ones. Subhashish Mohanty reports that students in the Sambalpur district of Odisha climb a water tank 150 feet high to access the internet to participate in their online classes. Another report quoted the Odisha School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash who said that “due to poor internet connectivity in the state many students have to walk miles, climb hills and trees to attend online classes during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The BharatNet Project

The BharatNet project, which initially began as the National Optical Fibre Network on October 25, 2011, had a targeted completion date of October 2013. The Cabinet has approved the implementation of National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) for providing broadband connectivity to 2,50,000 Gram Panchayats with a financial outlay of Rs. 20,100 crore. This project is being executed by Bharat Broadband Network Limited (BBNL) under the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF), Department of Telecommunications(DoT). The USOF aims to provide Universal Service to all areas of the country through network extension & stimulate uptake of the information and communications technology services. Section 3(1A) of Telegraph Act, 1885 defines Universal Service Obligation as :
“Universal Service Obligation" means the obligation to provide access to telegraph services to people in the rural and remote areas at affordable and reasonable prices;
However, while the project has lofty aims, it has not been able to live up to them. The project has been delayed consistently. The Committee to review the National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN) in the context of Digital India was constituted on January 14, 2015. In their report titled “Report of the Committee on National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN)” dated March 31, 2015, they stated that the project could be commissioned by 2017 however those deadlines were also not met. The current deadline for the project is August 2021.
According to a report by Aashish Aryan, “Overall, under all the phases of BharatNet, a total of 1.41 GP had been connected and made service ready as against a target of 2.5 lakh. Compounding the problem further, an estimated 19,952 km of lossy optical fibre out of the 27,534 km laid by Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) under phase one is now being pulled out and replaced by new optical fibre, the official said, adding the work on that project was also “crawling at a very slow pace”. As of January, progress in states like Andhra Pradesh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, and Odisha under BharatNet phase two was the worst. The number of service-ready GPs in these states had not even touched 1 per cent of the total 28,623 villages planned to be connected by March 2019. The four states had so far spent about Rs 950 crore, nearly 17 percent of approved project cost.”

Access to Internet is essential

In Anuradha Bhasin v. Union of India [2020 SCC OnLine SC 25], it was held that the internet is a medium to exercise fundamental rights provided by the Constitution of India. The judgement states that expressing one’s views or conducting one’s business through the internet are protected under Articles 19(1)(a) and 19(1)(g) of the Constitution respectively. However, does the Government have a positive obligation to provide access to the internet?
The National Digital Communications Policy (NDCP), 2018 seeks to unlock the transformative power of digital communications networks - to achieve the goal of digital empowerment and improved well-being of the people of India. To this end the NDCP attempts to outline a set of goals, initiatives, strategies and intended policy outcomes. This policy has three missions, the first of which is “Connect India: Creating Robust Digital Communications Infrastructure”. The aim of this mission is to promote Broadband for All as a tool for socio-economic development, while ensuring service quality and environmental sustainability.

Our recommendations to the DoT

As can be seen, while the delay in the operationalisation of the BharatNet Project in Odisha has been overlooked in the past, the current situation makes access to the internet essential. Therefore, we wrote to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) with a list of recommendations specifically for Odisha:
  1. The USOF division of the DoT must implement the BharatNet project according to pre-existing timelines, and if they are not able to do so they must make public the reasons for this. They should also then provide clear timelines in which they estimate the work will be completed which should include a monthly breakdown of work completed. They should also announce an explicit last date by when the project is complete and a detailed timeline with expected benchmarks.
  2. BBNL must highlight if they face any regulatory hurdles, so that those can be worked on by the DoT and the USOF division, BBNL and local municipal authorities.
  3. In the interim, vulnerable populations should be provided with subsidised broad based internet based services/transaction opportunities at CSCs, kiosks, post offices, legal services authorities, cyber cafes, etc.
  4. Funds should also be allocated under USOF and national/state disaster relief funds for subsidised access to internet connectivity and internet enabled devices. Special subsidies can be designed for students, healthcare workers and senior citizens.

Help us map the Digital Divide in India

In a reply to a question in Lok Sabha, Sanjay Dhotre, MoS for Communications, Human Resource Development and Electronics & Information Technology said that, “In 27,721 villages of India, there are still no mobile connections due to various issues”. Odisha trails the most with 6,549 villages without any mobile network. Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Andhra Pradesh follow Odisha with 2000-3000 villages without any mobile network. This sets back our fellow Indians, from the benefit of fast and affordable 4G internet.
If you live in such a region that lacks mobile internet infrastructure and want to help us in mapping this digital divide, please fill out the form here. We will assess the reason for the lack of 4G infrastructure and seek appropriate interventions. Help us help you!

2020.09.07 16:30 Army_Bot Summary For: Weekly Question Thread (8/31/2020 to 9/6/2020)

I have been working with my third recruiter currently for a few months. Got my packet put together and ready to go about a month ago. I call today to get an update on what's up with my paperwork and got told
"We are currently on stand by and not doing anything until recruiting command figures shit out"
Any recruiters verify this? Or will I need to move on to recruiter #4?

I was ready to recycle and try again, however the 75th is overstaffed on 11 series so I was dropped. My question is where to go from here? I want to have a worthwhile career in the army, and do cool stuff. I know I’m pretty tough mentally and physically, but I’m feeling kinda lost right now.

Does Tricare report to your chain of command in this matter? I recently was taken to the ER while blackout drunk, during the transportation the police decided to initiate an involuntary mental health examination after I sobered up to determine if this was an attempt at self-harm since there was ibuprofen and zzzquil on a shelf.
At the ER I was given a paneling trying to determine if I had taken any drugs with the alcohol. All of the tests came back negative, no drugs or anything. Once I was coherent I was interviewed by a psychiatrist, and was determined that this ER visit was unnecessary and that there was no intention of harm to myself or others. I had no physical or mental disorder diagnoses or anything, no alcoholism, nothing. I was released and rescinded. This was literally a case of being taken to the ER for being too drunk.
Once Tricare gets this bill, how will this exist on my medical records? Will it get reported to my chain of command? At face value this doesn't look bad, but my main worry is the fact that I was involuntarily examined. Does this meet some criteria to be reported?
Also, for future PHA's will my care provider have access to this? Would their knowledge of this instigate a mandatory reporting to ASAP or BH?
Thanks.

Hello everyone,
Context:
I was a Marine Corps reservist for 6 years and had a 5 year break in service. I'm joining the Army Reserve as a 12B and am looking at units in the Southern California.
Can some unit alumni or current members tell how it was with their unit?
Reason I'm asking here is because I know the recruiter won't really know what's going on in the individual units.
I was interested in:
305th Engineer Company (Clearance)
450th Engineering Platoon (AREA CLEARANCE)
350th Engineer Company (MOBILITY AUG)
Any information would be helpful.

Hi everyone,
Trying to decided between counterintelligence agent, human intelligence collector, and crypto linguist.
Background: Bachelor’s in psych, planning to enlist, looking to deploy/travel if possible. Hoping to do a career in the military and eventually go officer if I can.
I had been planning to enlist into Marines and go into the intel field. However, a lot of people have encouraged me to do Army intel instead. Took the ASVAB and qualify for all intel jobs and am meeting with the Army recruiter next week to look at options. The 35L MOS looks interesting, but so do the other intel jobs as well. Languages have always been an interest of mine too. Would love any input from those currently in or who have been in intel. If anyone also knows how Army intel compares to Marine I would love to hear your thoughts as well! If there’s any other Army MOS I should consider also please let me know.

Feeling very frustrated and discouraged. I was very excited at the opportunity to enlist but honestly I might just have to give up. I'm not really interested in lying to a recruiter or at MEPS.
Army or no army integrity and honesty means too much to me. If I disclose everything I'm supposed to disclose I'm going to have to get a waiver for voluntarily attending treatment for drug abuse, and for receiving treatment for depression, and hell maybe even for bad credit.
I'm no longer on medication of any kind and I've been abstinent from drugs for over 10 years and I have no criminal convictions. But everything I've been led to believe indicates they are looking for any reason to disqualify you because there's just tons of people waiting to get in.
Someone like me, yeah that's probably not going to fucking happen. I'm pissed but more than that I feel defeated. I worked hard to get better, but this feels like a mountain in my way.

Hi I hope this gets scene. I am looking to sign up for the military and got decent way in. I have to fill out the background check form and I see it has seizures in it which I did used to have. My recruiter tried telling me not to share that I had seizures. But the last thing I wanted was to be caught lying in a BG check esp when I need top clearance for 35M. He said that actually having seizures is an instant disqualification. But one of the other recruiters said before it wasn’t an instant disqualification. From what I read it SEEMS to be after 5 years of not having one you’re good to go which I well pass that. I’m just trying to know if it is actually a disqualifying thing or if I can sign up still if enough time has passed. And what can I do if it doesn’t disqualify me since that recruiter won’t let me in anymore or answer my calls? I have all the docs to back up how long and how my seizure free time has been.

Can I push off going to MEPS until October or should I book a job with my recruiter right now? My army recruiter has a few open slots for the job I want and is pushing me to book one before they run out, but the problem is I'm not ready to enlist right now. I've heard that in October a new fiscal year begins and new job slots open. Is this true? Should I wait to sign and hope that there's still an open job slot in October or should I enlist now so I can secure a slot for sure?

I was working with a recruiter, and he suggested that I go active duty enlisted and then put in a packet for OCS, instead of putting in a packet for OCS right away. His reason being that it is easier to get waivers approved while you are active duty than trying to get waivers approved from the street. Is this accurate, or is it just that it is such a hassle and too much paperwork for the recruiter to get these waivers?

Does Tricare report to your chain of command in this matter? I recently was taken to the ER while blackout drunk, during the transportation the police decided to initiate an involuntary mental health examination after I sobered up to determine if this was an attempt at self-harm since there was ibuprofen and zzzquil on a shelf.
At the ER I was given a paneling trying to determine if I had taken any drugs with the alcohol. All of the tests came back negative, no drugs or anything. Once I was coherent I was interviewed by a psychiatrist, and was determined that this ER visit was unnecessary and that there was no intention of harm to myself or others. I had no physical or mental disorder diagnoses or anything, no alcoholism, nothing. I was released and rescinded. This was literally a case of being taken to the ER for being too drunk.
Once Tricare gets this bill, how will this exist on my medical records? Will it get reported to my chain of command? At face value this doesn't look bad, but my main worry is the fact that I was involuntarily examined. Does this meet some criteria to be reported?
Also, for future PHA's will my care provider have access to this? Would their knowledge of this instigate a mandatory reporting to ASAP or BH?
Thanks.

Hello everyone,

I was a Marine Corps reservist for 6 years and had a 5 year break in service. I'm joining the Army Reserve as a 12B and am looking at units in the Southern California.
Can some unit alumni or current members tell how it was with their unit?
Reason I'm asking here is because I know the recruiter won't really know what's going on in the individual units.
I was interested in:
305th Engineer Company (Clearance)
450th Engineering Platoon (AREA CLEARANCE)
350th Engineer Company (MOBILITY AUG)
Any information would be helpful.

Hi everyone,
Trying to decided between counterintelligence agent, human intelligence collector, and crypto linguist.
Background: Bachelor’s in psych, planning to enlist, looking to deploy/travel if possible. Hoping to do a career in the military and eventually go officer if I can.
I had been planning to enlist into Marines and go into the intel field. However, a lot of people have encouraged me to do Army intel instead. Took the ASVAB and qualify for all intel jobs and am meeting with the Army recruiter next week to look at options. The 35L MOS looks interesting, but so do the other intel jobs as well. Languages have always been an interest of mine too. Would love any input from those currently in or who have been in intel. If anyone also knows how Army intel compares to Marine I would love to hear your thoughts as well! If there’s any other Army MOS I should consider also please let me know.

Feeling very frustrated and discouraged. I was very excited at the opportunity to enlist but honestly I might just have to give up. I'm not really interested in lying to a recruiter or at MEPS.
Army or no army integrity and honesty means too much to me. If I disclose everything I'm supposed to disclose I'm going to have to get a waiver for voluntarily attending treatment for drug abuse, and for receiving treatment for depression, and hell maybe even for bad credit.
I'm no longer on medication of any kind and I've been abstinent from drugs for over 10 years and I have no criminal convictions. But everything I've been led to believe indicates they are looking for any reason to disqualify you because there's just tons of people waiting to get in.

Hi I hope this gets scene. I am looking to sign up for the military and got decent way in. I have to fill out the background check form and I see it has seizures in it which I did used to have. My recruiter tried telling me not to share that I had seizures. But the last thing I wanted was to be caught lying in a BG check esp when I need top clearance for 35M. He said that actually having seizures is an instant disqualification. But one of the other recruiters said before it wasn’t an instant disqualification. From what I read it SEEMS to be after 5 years of not having one you’re good to go which I well pass that. I’m just trying to know if it is actually a disqualifying thing or if I can sign up still if enough time has passed. And what can I do if it doesn’t disqualify me since that recruiter won’t let me in anymore or answer my calls? I have all the docs to back up how long and how my seizure free time has been.

2020.09.02 10:01 isweatagod Will the Elder Scrolls 6 have a new game engine?

Can I just say - I knew it. I knew this was going to happen. I. Knew. It. Fallout 76 releases. Lots of bugs. Big mess. Very embarrassing for Bethesda. The conversation goes in a few directions, but one prominent voice emerges "Why are they still using an upgraded version of the Gamebryo Engine? That thing is ancient! They need a New Engine or I'm not buying their next game." So some Internet Detective starts digging. Hot damn. It looks like Bethesda is in the process of making a new engine. And what conversational direction emerges? "Sputters "Well now! I don't think they need a new engine!" ---What follows is speculation--- I tell you. Bethesda could announce they are making a spiritual successor to Morrowind. Shit. They could announce that's what Redfall meant. Red Mountain. It's eruption. The devestation of Morrowind. The ascendancy of House Redoran. The fate of the Dunmer people. Redfall. They could tease at a plot that was all about CHIM, the Tribunal, the Prophet Veloth, Nerevar, the Ancestors. The Dunmer's conflict with the Argonians, with the Dunmer still enraged over the invasion but deep story involving slavery and the impact it had on the Argonians would be present creating sympathetic antagonists in the Ain-Xeel. The Penitus Occulatus would be lurking around in a capacity similar to the Blades in Morrowind, trying to preserve what is left of, and re-establish, Imperial Authority over the province. Likely supported by House Hlaalu, hiding in the shadows, hungry for vengeance. Maybe the Legion shows up to attempt to occupy the province if you play your cards right. Or maybe, for the first time, past game choices matter. In your "Hey, you're finally awake" carriage scene you use dialogue options to say who won the Civil War and it's a Nordic Invasion, supported by Hlaalu Lackeys, if Skyrim won it's freedom. Or maybe working with the Redoran you fortify the borders to further Morrowind's independence. Perhaps you have to get a few factions to work together to defeat the Big Bad? Perhaps the protagonist earns the title of Hortator over the course of the plot to face it? That would be the Protagonist title. You know. Dragonborn. Champion of Cyrodil. Etc. "The Hortator." House Redoran might awaken Under-Skar like they did during the Oblivion invasion. All these things would be a part of the plot. They could say that Michael Kirkbride was brought on as a senior writer, and he could tease at the greatest Elder Scrolls story since Morrowind. They could announce a return to Morrowind style level up mechanics. They'd announce you could wear clothing, put armor on over it with every glove, boot, pauldron, etc. being a separate craft-able, repairable armor piece. You could throw a cloak over all that. With their new engine, you might even see armor under it unless you chose to "seal" it or something. Mysticism could return as a school of magic. Cities would return to not being instanced. Jump. Mark and Recall. Interventions. Levitation would all be spells once more. You could grow Telvanni Mushroom towers. Work with mega-insect bones to make Bonemold armor. They could cut out the compass guiding you to your quest destination. A return of dated, detailed roleplaying Journal Entries only with Oblivion's organization system. Guild politics would be back, and better than ever. Literally incapable of joining rival guilds this time. You have to choose alliances wisely to build towards the end-game. Meaningful interactions. They maybe send assassins or thugs after you. It impacts the game, perhaps. Grand Council stuff? Restore House Hlaalu? Fortify Redoran? Be a grumpy ass Telvanni? And what of The Tribunal Temple? What path does it follow? New Ordinators, or Service-Driven Priests? Oh, and you'd need skills in that style of play to rank up. Just like Morrowind. They could feature a game trailer.... with the protagonist using a spear. Todd Howard would introduce it at E3 202~ with the proclamation "Okay, you N'wahs. We've heard you, and we're giving you what you want, at long last!" And mark my words. Over. Bloody. Night. The fan narrative would become as follows - Oh, I never really liked Morrowind that much, to be honest. It kinda seems like crappy old timey skyrim. And what's with this convoluted new skill and armor system? It's so complicated and hard to understand. It was so much simpler in Skyrim. And what the hell is with this new armor? It breaks? And I need to get each glove separately, are you serious? And what the hell is this story all about? I wanted to know more about Ulfric and The Empire and The Thalmor! Skyrim belongs to the NORDS! (There would be in game books like "The Warp in The North" explaining what happened.) Who is this Kirkbride hack? Some weird neckbeard? Why don't they get someone who actually knows how to write, lol. What happened to Bethesda? Elder Scrolls VI, Redfall, would naturally be review bombed on MetaCritic having a final fan ranking of 1/10. Everyone would conclude that working in esoteric fantasy settings and relying upon such complicated, convoluted skill mechanics was a terrible idea. Reviewers would make articles such as "Revenge of the Geek." "This is what happens when a company looses touch with it's fans." "Has Bethesda gone too far?" "This isn't even funny anymore, it's just sad." Our fandom will never be happy. Bethesda will never make a game that we like. Even if they poured their heart and soul into a game and give fans everything they asked for, we would all just run to the other side of the field, take up positions around the other net, and cry "Ugh, you idiots. The goal posts were here all along!"

2020.08.29 12:10 EnShantrEs Paid off our very last credit card!

Over the last several months, I've been increasingly looking forward to the day I got to make this post, and today is the day! We are credit card debt free! We are still at least 5 years of hard work away from being completely consumer (cars)/student loan debt free, but today is a big milestone.
This got reeeallly long. I gave a lot of background and things we did to find ourselves in debt, things we tried that didn't end up helping, backslides, and things that have worked, with detail. You can skip all the way to the bottom for a TL;DR of tips.
5 years ago, I was well below the poverty line, had just flunked the last term of my senior year of university (which took me 6 years to get to) after having a mental breakdown that landed me in the hospital, was working three part-time jobs while a full-time student, getting food stamps to barely make ends meet as a single mother, and I felt utterly hopeless for my future. I had tried so many times to get my financial life in order and put the mistakes of my youth behind me, but with jobs that gave unreliable hours and low pay, and long-term partners who took advantage of my hard work, I just kept failing. A month after flunking out, I met my SO.
4 years ago, my SO had been laid off, but had been given the opportunity to get a 2-year degree or certification at no cost while collecting unemployment for the entire time. Because he'd been at a fairly high paying job, he was receiving the max amount of unemployment per week for our state, an amount exceeding full-time minimum wage, but he couldn't break even on his bills. He was falling further into debt every month, with a touch of "divorced dad guilt" spurring some unwise spending on top of that. At the same time, my neighbor let me know he'd heard a rumor that the person who had recently purchased our block of houses was planning on knocking them all down and building apartments. (That rumor ended up being true.) We were both paying well under market value and would struggle to find places at the same price, let alone less. We took a leap of faith and combined households (4 kids total!)
A little over 3 years ago, not even a year after we combined households, our landlord gave us notice of eviction, as he was selling the house. The landlord had been a friend of my SO, so he served the notice in person to explain. I still vividly remember standing in the kitchen and bursting into tears as soon as the door shut. We were doing okay, but I knew our bills were about to go way up and I didn't know how we could make it work. We got the landlord/friend to fib on the lease he printed for us and say I'd lived there for more than a year, so that we wouldn't have to find someplace where both of us made 3x the rent individually, as that would have been nearly impossible. We found a place still slightly under market value, but it nearly doubled our rent from $975/month to $1875. I started doing gig work at this point while pushing hard for a promotion at work. I went to the thrift shops and bought more professional-looking clothes, did my hair and makeup (stuff that shouldn't matter but honestly does all too often,) worked hard every minute of every shift and constantly asked for feedback/took on extra responsibility. I got promoted a few months after we moved into the new place. I also went back to school and finished my final term to get my Bachelor's degree... in music. I'd spent 10 years trying to be able to teach music, but the degree doesn't give me teaching certification, I'd have to do a Master's to get that and do at least 4 months of full-time student teaching. Without pay. So that dream is currently on hold again and my original plan to get a better paying job by getting a degree did not pan out. My $400/month job uses that degree. I have $70,000 in loans... SMH.
2 years ago, that better paying job was about to cause a second major mental breakdown. We'd gotten a new manager almost immediately after I was promoted, and she was awful. I was being scapegoated for everything. My team was not getting anywhere near enough hours to complete the tasks expected. I was working at a sweating pace for 9 hours straight every single day alongside my team, skipping lunches, clocking out for the day and then continuing to work, and still not getting even close to everything done. I'd give the manager literal hourly updates when we were way behind, be told to just do the best I can as they "couldn't" send anyone additional help. But when corporate would show up unannounced, the manager would say she had no idea my team was so far behind. Then I'd get written up for poor communication. That's just one of many, many examples. I was crying on my way home more often than not, and falling asleep the second I got home due to overwork and mental trauma. I started throwing my resume at every open job application I could find, regardless of whether I thought I qualified. I spent hours rewriting the key skills and objectives to best suit each of the jobs I was sending it to. Honestly I thought I'd never find anything better paying because I only had retail experience and I figured I'd get treated like shit everywhere, so I stuck with that job WAY too long. 16 years! It took a near mental breakdown to finally break away from there. I took the first job that offered full time work. It was graveyard shift, with day shifts being given via seniority. I was told to expect 2 years on graveyard. I also took a $5/hr paycut, putting me just below what I'd been at prior to the promotion at my previous job. But they also offered regular OT and a raise every 1080 hours worked until it topped out at $21.50. I took the job and all the OT I worked for the first year was just to get my paychecks up to what they were at my previous job as I earned the raises.
One year ago I reached my previous wage. We'd had a very small "debt snowball" up until then, but not much. Maybe $50/month extra after all the minimums were paid to put toward one of them. Now all my OT was going to our debt.
6 months ago, I got a day shift. Graveyard was really hard in so many ways, but it was worth it.
I reached the top wage a month ago.
At the beginning of last year, when we were able to start really focusing on debt and not just getting the bills paid, we had:
$5,600 in 0% loan debt (emergency vet bills and some 0% promotional debt)
$20,900 in interest-bearing credit card debt
Minimum payments for all of it combined: $1012.
More specific things I did to get to this point:
•Wrote the most bare-bones budget we could stand.
This took some trial and error. Started with the non-negotiable expenses (rent, utilities, minimum payments on existing debts, etc.) Then lowered or stabilized negotiable/variable debts (we call every 6 months asking for a "promotional" price for our internet, signed up for equal-pay plans on our utilities, asked about credits/discounts on our auto insurance, checked to see if there was a cheaper cell phone plan available that still met our needs.) We canceled all subscription services but one, and made sharing arrangements (kept Hulu and share it with my parents in exchange for using their Netflix; have a friend that lets us use his HBO login as a thank you for helping him previously; got a year free of Disney+ with our cell phone provider.)
The most trial and error came from the food/gas/supply budget line. The original amount I wrote in just wasn't enough. We were clearing the pantry of odds and ends at the end of every month and still exceeding the budget. I bumped that number up, but also scrutinized our typical grocery list/dinner menu. I make most of our food from "scratch," meaning we don't buy frozen meals or packaged foods for the most part. Sometimes we buy bread, other times I make it. I make spaghetti sauce, but the base is store-bought tomato paste. I make buttermilk biscuits, dumplings for soup, condensed cream soups (chicken and mushroom,) and gravies from scratch. I identified the meals we most often ate that were the cheapest, and others that were more expensive. The cheap meals have gone into our regular rotation, sometimes even weekly, while the more expensive meals are made only once every couple months. I regularly Google "cheap dinner ideas" and try one or two new ones when it starts to feel monotonous. We eat a "rice and beans" meal once a week, and spaghetti every week. We eat tacos nearly every week, cutting the ground beef with lots of mashed beans and adding spices to that mix to stretch the protein while keeping the meal cheap. I can and have made flour and corn tortillas from scratch, but usually purchase Tortilla Land (uncooked but ready-to-fry tortillas) unless we are really trying to stretch our remaining budget at the end of the month. We buy the 25lb bags of flour, rice, and beans.
We did write in some spending money, $100 each per paycheck (we both get paid bi-weekly.) If we want to get clothing, buy coffee instead of make it at home, purchase lunch or snacks at work etc, that has to come from our personal spending money. Gifts, including birthday, anniversary, and Christmas, spending money. Date nights, either one of us pays from our personal money or we split it.
•Kept my part-time job when I went full-time
Three years ago, before I got the promotion, I averaged 30 hours a week, sometimes hovering around 36 hours and other times dropping to 20-25. I was constantly begging people for shifts they didn't want. It paid just a little bit above my state's minimum wage. During that time, I picked up a part-time job directing choir at a church that paid $400/month for about 3 hours of work twice a week. I also did some gig work for a little while, doing personal shopping through Shipt. It brought in $50-100 a week typically, but that could be 10-15 hours of work or more, usually done in the evenings, on days off, and weekends. When I got promoted at that job to full-time and got a $4/hr raise, I kept the part-time job but quit the gig work. When I quit and went to my current job, I still kept the part-time job and still have it.
•Worked as much OT as I was offered/could stand
When I switched to the new job two years ago, suddenly I was regularly able to work up to 18 hours of OT per week, with the average offered about 11. I didn't always work all of it. Last year I averaged 8.5 hours of OT per week. This year I'm currently averaging 11.5, due in no small part to the switch to day shift. I work 6 shifts a week almost every week, one of them still being graveyard (a 6 hour OT shift on Friday nights) even though my normal shift has changed. The rest of the OT is working past my scheduled time off, usually doing five 9.5-11 hour days plus the 6 hour graveyard shift.
•Cooked from scratch, even when I really, really didn't want to.
Home-cooked food is nearly always cheaper than ready- or nearly-ready-made meals, if you have the means to transport and store fresh foods that is. To keep our grocery budget as low as possible, I cook a lot. After being gone 11-12 hours (when you include commute,) I come home and spend an hour to an hour and a half making dinner. Sometimes I prepare things or at least prep for them on the weekend so I can "take a night off" and only have to pop something in the oven. Anything that freezes decently, I make double batches and freeze one for nights that I just can't make myself do anything more. Sometimes I just tell the kids to find something edible and take care of themselves, lol.
•Meal prep. Lots of it.
We save the most if I plan out the dinners for the entire month. We then do one big shopping trip for everything except fresh fruits/vegetables and milk, then get what we need of the fresh stuff in a small, quick trip once a week. I will go through the ads to see if any meats, cheeses, or staple-items are on a great sale, then start by filling in our weekly meals (Spaghetti, beans and rice dishes, tacos every other week usually.) If ham is on sale, we'll do a spiral ham with scratch-made mashed potatoes and pan-fried green beans. Then I chop up the ham and freeze in 1 lb packages, I can usually get 6-7 portions to use in casseroles, in which case I do about two a month until it runs out and then look for a sale again. I then fill in the first week, and write down the groceries needed for those items. Once the first week of filled in, I look at my list and go through my recipes for other dishes that use something I'm already buying for another meal, but not using up. I also have some "companion dishes." If I make biscuits and sausage gravy, I take the dough scraps after cutting the biscuits, cut them into small pieces, and freeze them. The following week I make chicken and dumplings, using the biscuit scraps for dumplings. If I make clam chowder with bread bowls, I cut up the chunks of bread that were cut out to make the "bowl" and toast them in the oven into croutons. The following week we'll either have Chicken Caesar salad, or grilled cheese with soup+croutons. I try to find any way I can use the "leftover" of one meal to make another, basically, and fill in the second week of the month with those meals. Then if there's anything I'm buying but not using up for THOSE meals, I look for recipes to use those ingredients for week three, and so on. If I have any blank days left I pull from my "cheapest meals to make" list. My SO eats the leftovers for lunch, and I usually don't eat lunch. I can only stomach one small meal and one "regular" meal a day. If I eat at lunch time, I'm not hungry at dinner time. The kids eats sandwiches, ramen, macaroni and cheese, etc for lunch. We buy bulk cereal and make large batches of pancakes and waffles from scratch that they can heat up if they want those.
•Using my gig job to get steeply discounted gas and some money off groceries
While I was doing Shipt, I basically got $1 off every gallon for both our cars the entire time. They allow and even encourage you to use your own loyalty card when doing personal shopping, and I accrued more gas points than I could ever use. We also would get a nice rebate to put toward our own groceries at the end of each cycle.
•Accruing credit card points to use for the holidays
One of the first cards we paid off was our only points card, an Amazon Visa. There are better points cards out there, but this one seems to give approvals at lower credit scores than most of the others, as I got mine pretty early into rebuilding my credit. We use it to pay for all our groceries/gas/ household supplies, and pay it off every paycheck. Our budget line for these items is biweekly, so every time we get paid we pay off the previous two weeks and start at $0 again. I cannot stress enough how disciplined you have to be with this, though! Do not use a credit card, even a points card, if you can't stay within the budget at all times and always pay it off fully. I check the balance every single morning and it's written on our fridge. The points accrued are what we use to buy Christmas gifts for the kids and our parents.
•Shopping for a family member to get more gas points/ money off/credit card rewards
With Covid, we have been shopping for my in-laws so they don't have to go out as much. We get more of all the above rewards because of this. Don't do this unless you know 100% they will promptly reimburse you. Even better, get cash from them before you go, then deposit it on your way home and pay it off immediately.
**TL;DR: Things that helped me:
•Getting a second job and also working a "side hustle."
•Writing a budget. Using an app to track it. Being very strict, but also giving us a little bit of play money to keep us from feeling too restricted.
•Getting rid of as many unneeded expenses as possible. Sharing and trading streaming services with family/friends
•Getting a better paying job. Literally applying for everything, no matter whether I felt qualified. I never expected the job I'm in now to hire me with the type of experience I had.
•Working overtime any time it's offered, even if I don't want to. But don't burn yourself out. Know your limits.
•Meal planning, and limiting more expensive ready-made food as much as possible. Planning the mknth around sales. Planning multiple meals that use ingredients I was already purchasing for something else. Learning to make things I used to buy already made (bread, tortillas, biscuits, etc.)
•Making credit card points work for us. ONLY if the card is fully paid off and you are disciplined enough to pay it in full every single month. Be honest with yourself!**

2020.08.26 23:26 badpauly Significant Activist Hedge Fund Activity (Last 7 Days)

These are the latest Schedule 13D forms filed by activist investors in the last 7 days. Activist investors are investors that make an investment with the intention of influencing management in some way. There is evidence that following activist investors into investments can generate excess returns. Schedule 13G forms, in contrast, are filed by significant investors with no intention of influencing management (such as Index funds).
There is always a lot of interest in insider trades, but what a lot of people probably don't realize is that hedge fund activity is probably more predictive of future returns than insider activity. The reason is that hedge funds (a) have large research budgets, and (b) have a choice where to put their money. In contract, insiders have no choice where to put their money, but only when to time their transactions.

New Filings

This table lists new 13D filings in the last week. A new filing does not necessarily indicate a new position, as investors frequently accumulate in advance before reaching the filing threshold.

2020.08.25 14:43 FIArrari Throwback to the Caterham - Forza Rossa deal in 2014, in which Ecclestone played a big role (Very long read)

This is the story (or the mess) surrounding the Caterham - Forza Rossa deal in 2014. The story is very entangled. I translated this because I feel the effects of F1 withdrawal and maybe, for some of you, will kill the time til Friday. Added some parts of mine too. Lots of politics, corruption. It's a godamn thriller.
I will not do a TL;DR because it simply cannot be done more than the title says. If you have trouble sleeping, read it. AND READ THE NOTES AT THE END FIRST
The ties are maintained by greedy ministers, controversial oligarchs, dentists who have become trusted people, floor washers turned overnight into Directors of Formula 1 teams, plus two key figures: Bernie Ecclestone, the 83-year-old with a fortune of nearly $5 billion, and Victor Ponta, Romania's 42-year-old prime minister (ages in 2014), passionate about motorsports. One of the most influential people on the planet, Ecclestone is turning his favorite toy, Formula 1, to eastern Europe in search of new sources of income, regardless of color and smell. Ponta needs such a toy for which he is willing to pay, but not out of his own pocket.
Old Romulus Kolles, real name Colesnic, laughs at the rumor that he was Ceausescu's dentist. "I was a mechanic, I finished Polytechnic." His son, Calin, or Colin as he is known in Formula 1, with whom he emigrated in the 1980s to Germany, is a dentist by profession, but for a while he works as a "firefighter" in the sport transformed by Bernie Ecclestone in his own business. He saves teams," says the proud father. For the past 9 years, Colin has been director of Jordan, Midland, Spyker, HRT F1 Team and Force India. Of those, only the last one still existed in 2014 in Formula 1, and Kolles' reputation certainly is not one commensurate with his father's praise.
The story begins with the two Kolles, or Colesnic, as you prefer, because they hold the key to Romania's entry into Formula 1. They are the turntable between Ecclestone and the crew supported by Victor Ponta.
Let's go back in time by 10 years.
The ProSport reporter asks: "How did your son get into Formula One?"
"I can't tell you.", Romulus Kolles said, but fatherly pride takes control of the tongue: "A Russian billionaire came to visit us. We asked him to do a Formula 3 team and he said he will not do that. He said to Colin: . My son bought Jordan . The Russian locked his son in a room with all the papers. For months, he checked all the papers. Then he took Jordan and... This Russian had a Ukrainian partner, a university professor. He didn't like Formula 1. The Russian was a smart man. A smart Jew. I'm not Jewish, but I esteem them."
The Russian billionaire Kolles senior is talking about is Alex Shnaider, a Canadian billionaire born in Leningrad 43 years ago but settled in Toronto after his family initially emigrated to Israel. A business partner with Donald Trump, Shnaider bought the Jordan team in 2004 for $60 million, and Kolles was appointed director. The first Russian Formula 1 team launched their car in Moscow's Red Square and scored 12 points in 2005. In 2006, renamed Midland F1 Racing, the team did not produce any more points, and at the end of the year the Russian-Canadian businessman exited Formula 1, selling the team/spot for $102 million. $42 million more in less than two years!
Alex Shnaider has a fortune estimated by Forbes at $1.5 billion in real estate and metallurgical industry. Kolles senior is right. In 2004, Shnaider had a Ukrainian associate, Eduard Sifrin, a university professor. Meanwhile, the two broke business ties. Sifrin remained with 1.6 million square meters of commercial, residential and hotel spaces in Russia, and Shnaider took over the business part of Canada and the Dominican Republic.
Like other Russian oligarchs, Shnaider got rich overnight in President Boris Yeltsin's tenure from the privatisations of the remaining industrial colossus legacy after the breakup of the USSR. Coincidentally or not, the marketing director of Midland F1 Racing was named Boris Yeltsin junior, grandson of the former Russian president.
Shnaider's image is not impeccable. He was accused of giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to Moscow police to put pressure on a business partner. Islamist media speak of his ties to Mossad, the Israeli secret service, and conspiracy theorists suspect the recruitment of two major pawns in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001.
What was Alex Shnaider, a controversial billionaire, doing in the Kolles family home in 2004? Colin was involved in several Formula 3 projects, but nothing of the scale sought by Shnaider. The explanation came right out of Bernie Ecclestone's mouth: "I feel a little guilty that I advised Shnaider to buy Jordan," the Formula 1 master said in February 2006. So the billionaire visited the Kolles family on Ecclestone's advice. But what relationship did the Romanian-Germans have with the most influential man in motorsports to be recommended by the man nicknamed El Supremo?
According to the statements, Kolles is handled by Ecclestone, a disclosure containing a significant dose of conflict of interest and influence peddling. Why does the F1 boss need a team director that he places as a chess pawn in some hot areas of the phenomenon?
Bernie Ecclestone is the emperor who has been leading Formula 1 since the late '70s, the auto-moto version of Sepp Blatter, the FIFA president increasingly accused of corruption in recent years. The son of an English goon, a former director of the Brabham Formula 1 team, Ecclestone built his position in sport by controlling TV rights: 47 percent of the money went to the teams, 30 percent to the FIA, and 23 percent went into the F1 boss's pocket.
"Abuse of influence in Formula 1 is huge. It's a lot of business. You know, it's not what you see on TV that's Formula 1. There are other things, many. If I wrote a book about what's in there, you'd be scared." - Romulus Kolles, November 2014.
In 2006, the investment giant CVC Capital Partners bought all Formula 1 Group shares, including Bernie Ecclestone's share, from the market. After trying to bribe the officials of the German bank Bayerische Landesbank to sell their shares to CVC, the head of F1 bought shares in the newly established firm Alpha Prema that controls the Grand Circus.
During the trial, Ecclestone was accused of bribing three team executives, Eddie Jordan, Alain Prost and Tom Walkinshaw, $10 million each to sign the new TV rights agreement.
Accused by German prosecutors of paying $44 million in bribes to Gerhard Gribkowsky, a former director at Bayerische LB, Ecclestone escaped conviction by paying $100 million to Bavaria. During the trial, Gribkowsky told investigators that Ecclestone had tricked the British IRS by avoiding paying nearly $1.5 billion in taxes, a third of his estimated wealth in 2013.
A possible explanation for tax evasion ignored by the UK authorities can be found in a case in 1997 under Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair.
The Blair government's drastic tobacco advertising policy suffered a sudden sweetening after a secret donation by Ecclestone to the Labour Party. Ecclestone needed major F1 tobacco sponsors and had ways to get government favors, too. Health Minister Tessa Jowell, later secretary of state for sports, was also involved in the scandal. Her husband had worked for Ecclestone. Following British media pressure, the Labourists revealed they had received a £1 million donation from Ecclestone. Tony Blair publicly apologized for the scandal, but lied about making the decision. After the term ended, the internal memos from 10 Downing Street showed that the change in tobacco advertising policy was taken immediately after meeting Ecclestone.
17 years after the scandal in which he took the Prime Minister and the Social Health Worker in the UK, the head of F1 turned to the Social Democrat government in Romania. In December 2013, Ecclestone announced the opening of the Formula 1 gates for new teams. In the first wave of registrations appeared Forza Rossa, a project led in plain sight by Ion Bazac, a former Minister of Health, with controversial relations inside the Social Democrat Party from Romania, and supported from the shadows by Prime Minister Victor Ponta through the current Minister of Health, Nicolae Bănicioiu. The interface between Ecclestone and the Romanian part is provided by Colin Kolles. "In the FIA app, Colin's name appears because he got all the approvals from Ecclestone," reveals Romulus Kolles, father of the "firefighter" Colin.
Here are the main events in 2013-14. It helps us to better understand the behind-the-scenes of the case.
December 2013: Ecclestone announces FIA awaits new teams in Formula 1
February 2014: A delegation led by Nicolae Banicioiu, Minister of Youth and Sport of Romania, meets in Geneva with FIA representatives
April 2014: Ecclestone announces the filing of the files of two teams: HAAS and Forza Rossa, and says the FIA wants to accept them.
June 2014: Ecclestone says the new projects submitted have been accepted by the FIA.
June 2014: Forza Rossa announces that the team director will be Colin Kolles.
July 2014: Romulus Kolles is appointed director of Caterham Sports Limited.
July 2014: Constantin Cojocar, a former footballer at Steaua Bucharest, arrives at the Caterham factory in Leafield, who is employed as a carer. Cojocar was hired to clean the factory.
July 2014: 40 employees at the Caterham factory in Leafield are sacked by new investors and are suing the company.
September 2014: Cojocar is appointed director and sole shareholder in Caterham in place of Romulus Kolles.
October 2014: Cojocar officially introduces Caterham into insolvency.
October 2014: Although Colin Kolles denies he is behind Cojocar, and Engavest announces that he has sold Caterham, the former footballer admits that his boss is Kolles.
October 2014: The international media takes possession of Cojocar's statements before the Supreme Court in London in which he says the Caterham factory is going to draw and build cars for Caterham and Forza Rossa. Kolles is suspected of wanting to secure Caterham's assets for Forza Rossa at a reduced price.
October 2014: Forza Rossa announces that it has nothing to do with Kolles' involvement at Caterham and that he is still awaiting official confirmation from the FIA regarding his participation in the 2015 F1 season.
November 2014: Caterham does not participate in F1 races in Austin and Interlagos. Marussia is in the same situation.
November 2014: Court administrators at Caterham claim they have received offers to sell the F1 team.
November 2014: FIA announces the provisional list for the 2015 season. Forza Rossa wasn't on the list. The final list is expected to be announced on November 30, the date by which new teams must pay $518,000.
November 2014: Caterham's judicial administrators launch a fundraising campaign for the team to participate in the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi. In the first 24 hours, they raise £400,000, and Bernie Ecclestone condemns the initiative.
And now, let's dive deeper into this complicated story
On 2 June 2014, renowned F1 journalist Adam Cooper wrote that the FIA had accepted the Forza Rossa dossier, a team to be led by Ion Bazac, "the president of a consortium of private and state investors whose reason is to promote Romania's interests and which has the support of the government". Immediately after this information emerged, Bogdan Sonea, marketing director of Forza Rossa, told the romanian website Gandut that the project is "entirely private".
Things don't add up. At the end of February, the then Minister of Youth and Sport, current Minister of Health, Nicolae Banicioiu, had met with representatives of FIA in Vallery, near Geneva. The reason for the visit was, according to another renowned journalist, Joe Saward, to present the file to FIA engineers led by technical director Bernard Niclot.
If the project is "entirely private," what did a minister look for visiting the FIA to expose the technical details of some Formula 1 car? If the answer is "promoting Romania's interests", then why the information that Nicolae Banicioiu is lobbying for a project of national interest did not appear on the Ministry's website?
If Banicioiu is the "right hand" of the current Socialist Democrat Party leader Victor Ponta, the man who runs the project, Ion Bazac, is a businessman brought into politics in 2000 by former Socialist Democrat Party chief Adrian Nastase, who also recruited Ponta politically.
A former Employee of the World Bank, Bazac is a capitalist who has fallen at one point into the clutches of social democracy. He has several apartments in Monaco, has Ferrari's franchise for Romania and Moldova and runs his business with his wife Camelia through the holding company Forza Rossa, an offshore firm that has the registration address in a mailbox in Nicosia, Cyprus. Ion Bazac and Camelia Bazac have an estimated fortune of 15-16 million euros by Forbes magazine. Both were doctors, but in 2005 they were granted the right to import the Ferrari brand into Romania.
In June, all Forza Rossa employees declared, black on white, that the project would be led by Colin Kolles. On October 30, after the start of the ProSport investigation, they said: "We have no agreement with Colin Kolles at the moment." Untrue! According to Romulus Kolles, Colin is listed in Forza Rossa's application at the FIA.
But what links Ion Bazac and Colin Kolles, Ecclestone's trusted man? According to Joe Saward, if he enters Formula 1, Forza Rossa will use the technical facilities of the Kolles family in the Bavarian town of Greding. From here Romulus and Colin Kolles coordinate the activities of their Lotus Kodewa team in the World Endurance Championship.
The key is Lotus, the British manufacturer of cars and motorcycles. The Kolles family is the official Lotus importer, Ion Bazac is also the official Lotus importer. In 2012, Bazac, the Romanian businessman opened the world's first Lotus Originals store in Monte Carlo, and the ribbon was cut by Prince Albert of Monaco himself.
Therefore, the team suspected of fueling the money of Romanian citizens, Forza Rossa submitted its application for entry into Formula 1. But what is the participation cost?
Given that it's a small team, the spending is comparable to those at Caterham. The British team's latest accounting balance shows that in 2012 spending on a season was $73 million: $27 million on staff costs, $27 million on research and $19 million on administrative costs. If Forza Rossa wanted to build a team from scratch, tens of millions of dollars were added at the end of the line for the car and equipment. If, however, the Romanian project takes over the assets of another team, the costs decrease. How competitive a team can be that competes with slow cars taken from others and repainted is another discussion. In Formula 1, small teams know their place, but money has to flow.
Coincidentally, in June, after Ecclestone announced acceptance of the Forza Rossa project, Colin Kolles, the man who is to become the team's director, returned to Formula 1 as an advisor to Caterham, a team bought by Engavest, a mysterious "Swiss-Arab" company. Hence begins the fast moving of the events leading to the conclusion that the British team Caterham was sacrificed by Ecclestone to make way for the Romanian low cost project supported by Victor Ponta, the Romanian Prime Minister.
To resume it a bit: Colin Kolles' first move was the appointment of his father, Romulus, as director. Then was Constantin Cojocar, a former team-mate of Hagi at Steaua in the spring of 1988, former bus station chief in Brasov, who posted a CV on the Internet announcing that he wanted an unskilled worker position abroad. Coming to the Caterham factory in Leafield as a caretaker, Cojocar became a director and shareholder of the firm in just one month, in place of Kolles senior, while another 40 employees, mainly engineers, were fired. The fired officials immediately sued the company.
In a discussion with ProSport reporters on 31 October 2004, Romulus Kolles revealed that he had paid three Romanians, including former footballer Cojocar, to spy on employees at the Caterham factory. A few days later, Kolles senior told ProSport: "We kicked 40 employees out because there are 300, sir, and they do nothing except drink coffee all day. I have written data, I have information. There's pictures of them sitting for coffee instead of producing. Yes, it was a an easy life at Caterham. One night there were over 80 people on the computers and sometimes the power went out and they didn't do anything. In England, you get paid after you produce."
After finishing his job as a "carer" and "spy", Cojocar was appointed director by Colin Kolles – a fact recognized in an interview for ProSport – and put the company into insolvency. According to financial experts consulted by ProSport, insolvency is a perfectly legal way to reduce a company's liabilities. Caterham had debts of 23 million debts and if someone from the outside who wants to take over the team at a reduced price manages to infiltrate the company, insolvency is the cheap solution.
The situation was summed up at the end of October 2014 by Racecar Engineering, the world's leading motorsport technology magazine: "Caterham is now on sale, and all the pieces Forza Rossa needs will be sold at a low price."
Definitely, Forza Rossa will compete with already used cars, let's call them secondhand. "Romania does not have the technology to build a Formula 1 car. If Forza Rossa intended to do this, we would have found out from the distributors. The cable part comes only from the US, UK or France, tanks are made only in the UK, gearbox in the UK or Austria. No one has given any signal in the market that they want new products," British journalist Sam Collins explained.
At the Supreme Court in London, Constantin Cojocar, the newly appointed director of Caterham, said: "I bought Caterham Sports with the intention of drawing and building cars for Caterham and Forza Rossa." "He bought" = he was named by Colin Kolles as director. The problem is that the "Romanian investors" who had to pay down Caterham's debts stopped paying, Cojocar argues. (what happened was that soon after the Prime Minster of Romania said the Government isn't involved in any way and no public money were to be spent, official papers submitted to FIA were published by the media. The Prime Minster himself and one Minster from his Cabinet have signed the papers and they committed to invest public money into the team. The day after, Forza Rossa made an official statement saying that they need another call of confirmation from FIA - they already had the file approved, this was just the bailout -. Ofc, the new confirmation didn't came, FIA didn't needed to do it again. So Forza Rossa didn't paid the entry fee).
This is where the corruption that Kolles senior was talking about comes into action again. Having prepared Plan A at Caterham, Colin Kolles and the people at Forza Rossa can easily turn to plan B. Even C or D. The financial crisis in Formula 1 allows them.
The surprise could've come from the Russian team Marussia who had just announced that they were severing their work and laid off 200 employees. According to F1 specialists, Marussia is a cheaper option than Caterham, where Kolles is fighting former owner Tony Fernandes. "By the first tests in 2015 there are 10 weeks left, and the Marussia is slightly better than Caterham. The important work on the Marussia MR03 model is already done. Adaptations for the Ferrari engine, transmission, regular chassis, aerodynamic tests. Kolles has nothing to do but a discreet redesign. He's done that before with the HRT F1 team. Caterham uses Renault engines. If Forza Rossa wants Ferrari engines, working on Marussia chassis will be easier," says Sam Collins. Outside the Marussia plan, Kolles has two other options: Sauber and Force India, teams that were in great financial difficulty. Marussia is a bargain, the other two cost.
Mid November 2014, FIA announced the provisional list of teams for 2015. Caterham and Marussia were on the list, but no Forza Rossa. At this point, Romanians decided to back down because everything transpired in the media. With an approved file to join, they took the easy way out. They didn't paid the entry fee of $518.000 by November 30.
Constantin Cojocar was targeted by an investigation in the UK following the events. Last thing I knew about it was from 2016. I have no idea what happened to him.
NOTES
\this is a translation of the investigation work made by the journalist Costin Stucan*
\I have modified the text to give it more sense, but I haven't changed the narrative*
\A lot of the article has been cut because it involved too much politics and corruption*
\Even if I cut like 25% of the article, there's till much politics involved. Because that's how F1 works. If I would've removed it completely, this would had zero logic*
\There are 4 or more articles about this matter. The interview with Cojocar is very good. He is a simple and ... quite stupid individual. So he told everything with a sincerity of a 5 years old child. If you are interested in that, let me know and I will translate*
\First events regarding Jordan and the entering of Kolles occur in ~2004. The Forza Rossa story is ~2013-2014. Don't get confused by that. You will get confused anyway by the names*
\If any mistakes slipped in or if it's something that you cannot understand (doesn't make sense), let me know and I will sort it out. On such a long text, I am sure I fucked up many times*
\Even if everything colapsed in a mater of hours, 50M EUR were transferred from Romania to some Swiss account for Forza Rossa's beginning in F1. No one knows anything about the whereabouts of the money.*
\I might do more edits on the text for formatting or other grammatical errors. I'm sorry, English is not my native language and I've never studied it. I've learned it on my own and I lack a lot of stuff still.*

After posting the article about Lance B Eliot yesterday, another video popped up on YouTube. u/D4W50N88 found it and provided the link, and I'm glad he did (Thank you D4). Why didn't it show up for me? No idea. But it did, and now the enigma has become worse.
When I first stumbled onto this, I made a mistake. I went back through my notes and found that I had wrongly attributed the Lance persona as the judge sitting to the left of what was Lance at the table. How did I screw up that bad? I'm human. (No seriously, I'm human. I'm not AI. I'm not NSA. CIA. I don't have any affiliations to any Alphabet agencies. I am what I am. And what is that? A guy who grew up with an extremely skeptical father who always called BS on the news and political events, and tried to make me understand that it was self interest, not altruism, that guided the world around us. That will be expanded on at some point down the road.) I make mistakes. It's not the first time and it won't be the last. But sometimes mistakes happen for a reason.
This is one of those times.
So I watched the second YouTube video of Lance that was provided here;
I'm not sure if he's exactly an AI, seems to be a real person going off this video -
Really quick summary, he doesn't say diddly squat. Anyone could have regurgitated lvl 5 autonomous cars and insurance rates. My statement doesn't prove anything though. I realize that. But let me ask you something, He's been on CNN, he's written a ton of books, he's an angel investor, a venture capitalist, CEO of Techbrium, and not one other picture or (so far) any other videos of him exist? We're living in an age of near omnipresent and approaching omnipotent surveillance, they are screwing with DNA, the government has acknowledged UFO's, phenomenon like the Hum and Sky Quakes are being reported worldwide, we live in a pandemic for which we will need never ending vaccinations, so is it really out of the realm of reason that Lance could be an actor? I've looked for research papers from him and I've found maybe three to four. None of them are overly technical and mainly deal with AI and the law and ethics. That's strange. But before we dive further, I will concede the possibility that there is a Lance B Eliot, but I'm adamant that the articles and books are written by AI. No doubt in my mind, and by the time this post is done, you'll wonder what's really going on as well.
Let's start with his name. Something about it grabbed my attention, as it did for others. I can't speak for them, but I remember just looking at it suddenly thinking, is that an anagram?
u/agelesseverytime • Lance B Eliot is an anagram for antebellico - prewar.
u/WhiteRabbitCaveCA also sent me the same anagram.
Hidden in plain sight. But it's still a chess game. Your moves have to be deceptive and you need to look ahead a minimum of three moves. And all moves have multiple moves. Does this mean that the anagram doesn't apply? No. It does. And it points to the ability of having meaning hidden in meaning, all in the open.
Now I will caution you, this post will be somewhat open-ended. I haven't been able to find anything definitive that could point to a possible origin of what I believe to be Lance B Eliot, yet those breadcrumbs do lead to loaves of bread, so to speak.
So when I was sent the other YouTube link with Lance as a speaker, I looked around the web again. I had already found what I thought was a very strong link, but now the video threw a monkey wrench into my plans.
This is what else I found when I Googled articles by Lance B Eliot. Eliot Weinman, executive editor of AI Trends, where AI Eliot seems to get published a lot. Relax, it's not just the name coincidence. It's also this:
Curiosity as a Core Cognitive Capability for Self-Driving Cars. By Eliot Weinman. aitrends.com — By Dr. Lance B. Eliot, the AI Trends Insider. • I live in a gated community that has a main gate for residents and guests, and provides an impressive driving entrance into the neighborhood that displays ornate iron gates and a spectacular water-sprouting fountain. There is a secondary gate at the back of the community.
And then.
President Trump Will Sign an Executive Order Promoting AI. By Eliot Weinman • aitrends.com — President Trump is expected to sign an executive order on Monday meant to spur the development and regulation of artificial intelligence, technology that many experts believe will define the future of everything from consumer products to health care to warfare.
Source Here
There is another example there, but this will suffice. So why is Lance B Eliot being headlined by Eliot Weinman? Doesn't make sense, does it? And what is muckrack.com?
Say hello to your one-stop, relationship-building platform and goodbye to outdated media databases: Muck Rack’s search engine lets you discover and pitch relevant journalists in a much more targeted way than legacy media databases.
Ok. Now usually top ranking scientists don't belong to an organization that is meant to find journalists paying work. Why would they? And why would a guy who has started multiple companies, is a CEO of Techbrium - and speaking of which, check out the website, powered by godaddy? Seriously? It doesn’t list any employees, no detailed company history, and while it does have job openings, it seems off. So I Googled mapped Techbrium, and guess what, no results found. Ok. Gotcha. Must be the New Normal GPS malfunctioning, right? SMH.
Back to Eliot Weinman. Let me show you what he belongs to: Founder and Conference Chair, AI World & AI World Government (brought to you by the Cambridge Institute). Uhm. Keep Calm and Carry On? Don't Worry be Happy? And, Eliot Weinman is the GM and Founder at Cambridge Innovation Institute. Also, Eliot Weinman has had 1 past job as the President, Events and Publishing at Yankee Group. And. Research firm Yankee Group has acquired digital media and technology research and events firm Trendsmedia. The acquisition will “accelerate Yankee’s growth and expand its reach in global connectivity issues, helping network builders, operators and users navigate revolutionary change”, whatever that means. And when I clicked on trendsmedia, it led me to a clickfunnel company. And when I clicked on Yankees group, it was owned by 451 Research, which is owned by S&P Global Inc. (prior to April 2016 McGraw Hill Financial, Inc., and prior to 2013 McGraw-Hill Companies) is an American publicly traded corporation headquartered in Manhattan, New York City. Its primary areas of business are financial information and analytics. It is the parent company of S&P Global Ratings, S&P Global Market Intelligence, and S&P Global Platts, CRISIL, and is the majority owner of the S&P Dow Jones Indices joint venture. "S&P" is a shortening of "Standard and Poor's". Cool, right. Now what? Glad you asked. S&P is into four different segments.
S&P Global RatingsEdit • S&P Global Ratings provides independent investment research including ratings on various investment instruments.
S&P Global Market IntelligenceEdit • S&P Global Market Intelligence is a provider of multi-asset class and real-time data, research, news and analytics to institutional investors, investment and commercial banks, investment advisors and wealth managers, corporations, and universities. Subsidiaries include Leveraged Commentary & Data.
S&P Dow Jones IndicesEdit • Launched on July 2, 2012, S&P Dow Jones Indices is the world's largest global resource for index-based concepts, data, and research. It produces the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average.[20][21] S&P Dow Jones Indices calculates over 830,000 indices, publishes benchmarks that provide the basis for 575 ETFs globally with $387 billion in assets invested, and serves as the DNA for $1.5 trillion of the world's indexed assets.
S&P Global PlattsEdit • Headquartered in London, S&P Global Platts is a provider of information and a source of benchmark price assessments for the commodities, energy, petrochemicals, metals, and agriculture markets. It has offices in more than 15 cities, including major energy centres such as London, Dubai, Singapore, and Houston, and international business centres such as São Paulo, Shanghai, and New York City.
Ok. So what? So this. The McGraws and the George W. Bush family have close ties dating back several generations. Harold McGraw Jr. (deceased) was a member of the national grant advisory and founding board of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. Source Here
And who is the President and chief executive officer of S&P? Douglas L. Peterson. And what else does he do? Peterson is co-chair of the Bipartisan Policy Centers’ Executive Council on Infrastructure, and advocates for public-private sector partnerships as a means of improving infrastructure in the US.[23] For the World Economic Forum, Peterson is Co-Chair of the Stewardship Board of the Platform for Shaping the Future of Cities, Infrastructure and Urban Services; a Member of the International Business Council; and Governor of the Financial Services Industry Community. Peterson is also a boardmember of National Bureau of Economic Research, and the US-China Business Council. Peterson is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's Systemic Resolution Advisory Committee.
Basically a Conspiracy Theorist's Doomscrolling dream job, am I right?
WEF • Who are behind the Great Reset (later post coming soon), and to quote Prince Charles speaking (virtually, of course SMH) at the World Economic Forum, "We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this crisis - its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change," said Prince Charles at the meeting, adding later, "It is an opportunity we have never had before and may never have again." Source Here
Great. Perfect. Crisis. Reaction. Solution.
CFR • The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), founded in 1921, is a United States nonprofit think tank specializing in U.S. foreign policy and international affairs. It is headquartered in New York City, with an additional office in Washington, D.C. Its membership, which numbers 4,900, has included senior politicians, more than a dozen secretaries of state, CIA directors, bankers, lawyers, professors, and senior media figures. Currently it has, • David M. Rubenstein (Chairman) – Cofounder and Co-Chief Executive Officer, The Carlyle Group. • Jami Miscik (Vice Chairman) She currently serves on the boards of EMC Corporation, In-Q-Tel and the American Ditchley Foundation, and is a member of the President's Intelligence Advisory Board. Before entering the private sector, she had a twenty-year career as an intelligence officer, including a stint as the Central Intelligence Agency's Deputy Director for Intelligence (2002–2005), and as the Director for Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council (1995–1996). • Thad W. Allen − Senior Executive Advisor, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. • Laurence D. Fink – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer BlackRock. There are more, but you get it. And let's just top it off with, CFR has published the bi-monthly journal Foreign Affairs since 1922, and runs the David Rockefeller Studies Program, which influences foreign policy by making recommendations to the presidential administration and diplomatic community, testifying before Congress, interacting with the media, and publishing on foreign policy issues.
And you may have noticed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which insures banks from going bankrupt. Yikes. Hopefully we don't have a cybersecurity attack on our banking systems. Maybe we should use Coalfire?
OK, are you confused, me too. Let's recap.

BGG RECAP!

Lance B Eliot shares article ownership with Eliot Weinman on muckrack.com, which was published on AI Trends. Eliot Weinman is the executive director AI World and AI World Government. Trends Media was also bought by the Yankees Group, where Eliot Weinman is the President. And when I clicked on the Yankess group, it was owned by 451 Research, which was owned by S&P, which was started by friends of George Bush, who belonged to the Carlyle Group, which has a co-executive on the CFR, and Douglas Peterson is a member of the CFR and the WEF, while aslo running S&P.
Simple, right. Now, remember two things, Eliot Weinman seems to be associated with Lance B Eliot, and Lance is constantly produces articles about AI and business, while S&P has is all about business. Let's go.

Lance the Prequel.

So when I first found Lance, I started to ponder different anagrams. Why? Well, his last name. One guy who works for me is named Elliot, and Eliot stood out for the different spelling. After repeating a mantra of Eliot for a while, I stopped.
Eliot. ElIOT. elIoT. IoT. Internet of Things. It had to be me looking for a pattern. HAD TO BE. Then I looked at the name again. The end was possible, so I looked at his first name. I repeated the same mantra, letting my unconscious do the work. And sure enough, it hit me again. Lance. LANce. LAN. Local Area Network. No. Effing. Way. Come on. LAN + IoT = Local Area Network of Internet of Things. Ok. It adds up. Makes sense. I don't know how, but it does. Yet that still left me with the rest of his name.
CEBEL. Whelp, the mantra didn't help, it was time to dig. And dig I did. And found nothing. Well a couple of things, and one I thought that I was stretching logic too far, and the other, maybe not. Because it led me to OMG’s Artificial Intelligence Platform Task Force. A co-chair was Claude Baudoin, who has a company called cébé IT & Knowledge Management. And I almost went with it, and then something said NO. It was a gut feeling that I was wrong. There was no L in the company name. So I started digging all over again. And it wasn't easy. It took forever. It didn’t make sense. At all. I couldn't find anything that was an exact match. And then I saw this.
Thomas Siebel's software company C3IoT raised about $100 million from private equity investors in January 2018, at a $1.5 billion valuation. Today, C3.ai is focused on enterprise AI, but it started as a clean energy firm. It was briefly named C3IoT in 2016 to chase the IoT market. Siebel was a salesman at Oracle. He left in 1990, built software firm Siebel Systems and sold it to Oracle for $5.8 billion in cash and stock in 2006. Forbes
And he was attacked by an Elephant.
(DID YOU KNOW. Siebel was attacked by an elephant on a 2009 safari trip in Serengeti; he barely escaped death and has undergone 19 reconstructive surgeries. Maybe the animal kingdom was defending the planet?)
It was briefly named C3IoT. But the first program was sold to Oracle and • Oracle Siebel CRM is a sales force automation (SFA) and customer relationship management solution designed to assist enterprises to manage their customer experiences. It includes a range of sales, marketing and customer service applications tailored to various industries • focuses on businesses. Much like a lot of Lances articles. And Thomas Siebel's software • C3.ai is a leading enterprise AI software provider for accelerating digital transformation. The proven C3 AI Suite provides comprehensive services to build enterprise-scale AI applications more efficiently and cost-effectively than alternative approaches • advances AI to accelerate digital transformation, just like AI World Government, which is owned by Eliot Weinman. Is Cebel a play on Siebel? It sure seems like it to me.
And Thomas also has this to say.
High: What inning of the game do you believe we are in from an AI perspective, and how is that likely to develop going forward? Siebel: Julius Caesar considered Gaul as being divided into three parts, and I believe AI is divided into three parts.
1• Artificial general intelligence, which includes projects such as Google DeepMind. Here, the attempt is to build computers that have equal or greater intelligence as human beings. This gets to the malicious killer robots and the refrigerator that takes over your household theory, but I do not believe we need to worry about that in our lifetimes;
2• Social media systems. Here, social media vendors are using AI extremely effectively to manipulate people at the level of the limbic brain. I believe this is malevolent, and what we are seeing in social media is concerning. People are acting as servers to the computer instead of the opposite;
3• The application of AI to commercial, industrial, and government systems, which is where we play at C3.ai. This is building prediction to identify fraud, efficiency to the supply chain, and predictive maintenance for devices in the digital oilfields, the smart grid, the manufacturing industry, agricultural equipment, and precision health. This is about using AI to lower the cost of production and to deliver products and services with greater safety, with greater cybersecurity, and with lower environmental impact.
Hmmm. It's starting to sound like my posts, isn't it? Yet he's not worried about killer robots, yet social media manipulation, that's a problem. But I can bet you all the tea that's left in China, those words shouldn't be taken at Facebook value.
High: You have referred to there being a war with China based on artificial intelligence, and you have referenced how Vladimir Putin said the country that wins in AI will ultimately win in the world. As a citizen of the U.S., what do you think about this? How optimistic are you about the state’s ability to lead and the extent to which it is appropriate language? Siebel: This is a crucial topic. As you mentioned, in 2017, Vladimir Putin said, “Whoever wins the war in AI will be the ruler of the world.” I believe that is true, but I do not believe Russia will win. It is either going to be China or the U.S. I believe we are currently in a state of non-kinetic warfare with China. It is well-documented how great Russia and China are at infiltrating our power grid infrastructure, infiltrating our financial system infrastructure, and implanting viruses, bots, and malware so they can remotely turn off the grid. There are well-documented incidents where the Chinese have penetrated, say, the United States Office of Personnel Management and stolen the personnel records of up to 21 million people. This includes anyone who has ever applied for or been granted a security clearance. If this is not war, what is it? If you read the 13th five-year plan, it is extremely clear what they are doing. They are investing tens of billions of dollars a year in AI to win this battle and to dominate the use of AI for the purposes of defense and conducting warfare. In many ways, this is a test of two fundamentally opposed political philosophies. In the case of China, there is a totalitarian state with a top-down command and control economy where the NRDC writes the 13th five-year plan, invests billions of dollars, and mandates that this happens. They are extremely bright, competent, and educated, and they are hard at work. In the United States, we have a much messier process with a free-market economy and a capitalist system. Innovation does not take place from a top-down command and control government-mandated system, but in garages in Palo Alto and storefronts in theNew York. I do not know which system is going to win, but this is going to be the ultimate test of these political philosophies. This is not a war we want to lose, the stakes could not be higher, and it is game on.
And then.
High: What role do you see the government playing in all this versus private industries, and how do you see the balance between the two? Siebel: The people who work in the Pentagon are exceptionally bright and well educated. These scholar statesman warriors are not asleep at the switch, and they are adopting AI in many ways to prove the efficiency of the Department of Defense. As it relates to AI, the U.S. is going to advance through a free market economy, entrepreneurship, and through the creativity of individuals who are unbridled by the constraints of the stage. This system has always worked out for us in the past, and hopefully, it will continue to. If it does not, we are going to have a problem. Source Here
Game on. If it doesn't work, there's a problem, because we're in a war with China, and the Pentagon states that the war will be fought in abrupt climate change which will cause drought and famine in China. And I've said it before, but the social discord and the riots, will be blamed on Russia and/or China. And maybe they are to blame. Who knows, because we have to trust our New Normal World Order narrative as it's filtered with fact checks and fake news, while the surveillance system makes sure we are safe from physical threats through AI data mining, and incorporating AI through the Great Reset, which apparently China has to get on board with. Uhm, and people are having a hard time believing that our world is about to get turned upside down? Really? Has the desensitization been that effective that everyone is numb? Short answer, pretty much.

BGG Final Words

NEW YORK (PRWEB) JANUARY 11, 2018 • Though various forms of artificial intelligence and machine learning have existed for nearly 60 years, it is only recently that this field of computing has developed to a level of accessibility that truly allows businesses to leverage this innovative technology. There are no blanket solutions in technological transformations. Artificial intelligence is no exception. Mediaplanet’s Cognitive Technology campaign, created in partnership with Melinda Gates, the World Economic Forum and Microsoft, will serve as an educational guidebook for business leaders to understand how to obtain the maximum benefits from cognitive technologies within their market —using artificial intelligence to improve employee workflow and efficiency, reshape customer experiences and take risk and fraud protection to the next level. This program was made possible with the support of Melinda Gates, the World Economic Forum’s Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Microsoft, the National Security Agency, the National Retail Federation, Eliot Weinman, the Cognitive Computing Consortium, SCIP, AMT, HSBC, Forgerock, Feedzai, LogMeIn, Cognicor, Omron, The Nerdery and The Savo Group. Source Here
Hey! Look, NSA, Melinda "I hoarded food in my basement because I know how privileged we are" Gates, WEF, and Eliot Weinman. And his AI World Government did this press release.
According to Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of the Boston Global Forum (BGF), “We have been collaborating with Mr. Weinman and his team at AI World throughout 2018 to support the event as an International Host. We have several activities already underway at AI World 2018, and will continue our strategic alliance for all AI World 2019 events. We will present an AI-Government model at AI World Government.” Source Here
Do you want Skynet Eliot, cause this is how you get Skynet.
But maybe I'm suffering mass psychogenic delusions from Doomscrolling looking for mass surveillance examples and an upcoming war before environmental collapse. Maybe? Possible? Let's look and see if I'm justified in my paranoia.
Lance B Eliot • Neanderthal and AI. Source HereCould the acrimonious polarization in society today be simply due to chance alone, or might we be divided amongst ourselves by inherited Neanderthal DNA that has been triggered in recent times? Let’s hope that we can find a means to overcome the polarization, else we might become an extinct species and then, down the road, perhaps some surviving all-knowing AI might look back one day and snicker that we were ultimately and unknowingly doomed by our Neanderthal forerunners.
You're gonna trigger me, you AI loving Neanderthal monster. Doesn't that sound crazy? Read the article and then tell me that it was written by a human (not that anyone has, it's just a figure of speech).
May 21, 2016 • As you can see, it seems like we managed to avert what could have been a massive economic crisis in the 2008-2009 time frame, and entered into what Mohamed in his 2010 Per Jacobsson lecture referred to as the “new normal” (now widely popularized). We have been somewhat languishing in this new normal and are seemingly trying to just keep ourselves in the new normal, sometimes now referred to as the new new normal. Believing that we are nearing the T-junction, the Figure 1 shows that we are upon a pivot point, perhaps in just the next 2-3 years, and will then swing either toward the boom or the doom, of which the Mohamed as odds-maker suggests are equally likely (50/50 chance). Source Here
Pivot? Boom or Doom? Thank God we don't have any pivots happening.
Obama, 2012, Pivot to Asia • There has been strong perception from China that all of these are part of US' China containment policy.[4] Proponents of this theory claim that the United States needs a weak, divided China to continue its hegemony in Asia. This is accomplished, the theory claims, by the United States establishing military, economic, and diplomatic ties with countries adjacent to China's borders.
Aw crap. Pandemic. The Great Reset. Fourth Industrial Revolution. World Economic Forum. AI World Government. Pivot. Boom or Doom. Pivot to Asia.
All good. Keep Calm and Carry On. There is nothing to fear, but fear itself, and environmental collapse, WW3, AI, Killer Robots, Big Brother, Pandemic, Economic Collapse, Asteroids,1. Magnetic Field Weakening, Famine, and Animal Mass Mortality Events. It's game on. Boom or Doom time. Cats and Dogs living together. Neanderthals worshipping AI. All the worst parts out of the Bible, except we don't get turned to salt. I hope. 2020 isn't over yet. And it probably won't be over in 2021, or 2023, or, 2030. After all, the agenda runs until 2030, doesn’t it?
So is Thomas Siebel and Oracle Siebel Systems supposed to be a homonym for Cebel? Is Eliot Weinman involved somehow, or is it just a coincidence. Is Lance B Eliot gonna be AI President of the Techncracy? Just keep paying attention and stay aware. We might not what is happening, but we know something is, and possibly hidden actors involved in all of it.
Heads up and eyes open. This hasn't even started yet. Talk soon and take care.
1. Trust me, u/arctic-gold-digger was right on the money about space rocks, and I'll show you why in a few posts. And also, thanks to u/WhiteRabbitCaveCA as well as u/UFOS-ARE-DEMONIC The extra dots being connected were a massive help.

Human Rights Watch; Similar Tech in China & Carbyne. Carbyne in the USA 911 SYSTEM. Michael Chertoff: Wrote Patriot Act + Carbyne Director.

Headlines. A line designed to get into your head. And it works, judging by the amount of circulation of conspiracy posts that help move those headlines that masquerade as revealing connections, but are merely propoganda headline clones being disseminated.
So lets get ahead of the lines before the lines get into your head.
Humans have two primary modes of communication; verbal and nonverbal. Nonverbal is body language. Body language on it's own can give you insight. Pairing verbal and nonverbal gives you the whole picture. Headlines are verbal. The content is nonverbal. That's how you get a glimpse of the bigger picture. But we can't look at each article as a completed part of the communicative process. That would be like only watching hand gestures while having a conversation with someone. The article isn't the subject, the event is the subject, and if the subject was person, then we have to find as many articles as we can to profile the body language and interpret the nonverbal communication.
Let me show you what I mean.
Offender Conspiracy Article Profilingcriminal article profiling, is an investigative strategy used by law enforcement agencies conspiracy theorists to identify likely suspects hidden motives and has been used by investigators conspiracy theorists to link cases subjects that may have been committed by the same perpetrator. Multiple crimes may be linked to a specific offender event and the profile may be used to predict the identified offender's conspiracy's future actions real intent. Criminal Profiling Here
And then.
Nonverbal communication (NVC) Multiple Article Profiling (MAP) • is the transmission of messages or signals through a nonverbal platform multiple article content searches (MACS) such as eye contact, facial expressions, gestures, posture, and the distance between two individuals, article source, differing information, dates, pov, and the connections between the sources. It includes the use of visual cues such as body language (content), distance (dates) and organizations/politicians, corporations, law enforcement, environmental issues, economics, and technology/AI. Original NVC Content Here
I have no doubt that the actors who have advanced copies of the script are using data algorithm aggregation that compiles the different content sources into a complete picture for them. We plebs aren't so lucky, we have to peruse and parse multiple sources to connect the dots. In essence, we are the plebs living in a technofuedal era before the invention of the modern Gutenberg technopress for the masses.
So let's throw on some work boots, grab a shovel, and start digging.
The Hacks and Muckrakers.

Trump. The man's Presidency has come at a time where it's all starting to fall apart. And I can't help but think of Trump as Julius Caesar part two. A populist leader who threatened the establishment and upended the republic, paving the way for Augustus Caesar and the soft introduction of Roman empire, as it let the pretenses of being a Republic fade away. If you aren't familiar with that time of history, I would highly recommend doing so. There is more to my comparison that I'm not elaborating on, except to say, if you dig you will find someone else who loves Roman history, looks like a clone of Augustus, and we watched as he made rounds while articles suggested that he had aspirations of becoming President. Do I think that it'll happen soon? Probably not. History doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes. And we're only at the start of the Hollow Men by T S *Eliot *.
December 14, 2016: Techcrunch • President-elect Donald Trump met with some of the most prominent executives from the tech industry today at Trump Tower, with investor Peter Thiel and Vice President-elect Mike Pence at his side. Trump opened the meeting with CEOs from Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and others by thanking Thiel for his support. “I want to add that I am here to help you folks do well. And you’re doing well right now and I’m very honored by the bounce. They’re all talking about the bounce. So right now everybody in this room has to like me, at least a little bit,” Trump said, perhaps in reference to the fact that he received little support from Silicon Valley during his campaign. “We’re going to try to have that bounce continue. Perhaps even more importantly, we want you to keep going with the incredible innovation. There’s nobody like you in the world. There’s nobody like the people in this room and anything we can do to help this go along, we’re going to be there for you. You’ll call my people, you’ll call me, it doesn’t make any difference. We have no formal chain of command around here,” Trump said.
Interesting, wouldn't you say? No formal chain of command around here. They thanked Peter Thiel for his support. Ok. Maybe nothing, maybe something. Ok. It's something.

www.cnbc.com • Trump: Facebook, Twitter, Google 'have to be careful'.
Stop the presses, because were getting squeezed and pasteurized. The tech leaders meet with Trump. They thank Thiel, suggesting that he organized the assembly. And then Trump starts bashing the Technocrats that he's meeting with? Nothing but Bread and Circus. Plain and simple.
June 27, 2017: Tech Transparency Project • No other company in America was as intimately tied to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party during Barack Obama’s eight years in office than Google. Today the company is doing everything it can to restore the same cozy White House access it enjoyed under President Obama. Eric Schmidt has attended at least two meetings with Trump and attended a third White House meeting with tech leaders last Monday. At the same time, The Groundwork – a secretive Schmidt-funded startup that ran the Clinton campaign’s data operation – recently relaunched itself as a technology platform for liberal organizations working to fight the Trump Administration’s agenda. By all appearances, Google appears to be working overtime to both ingratiate itself with the Trump Administration while simultaneously cashing in on the “resistance” to Trump’s agenda. Source Here
By all appearances? He's working both sides? Trying to cash in? Really? Seriously? Let's break that down.
** 2020 • Eric Schmidt/Net worth: 15.3 billion USD. Call me crazy, but I don’t think a guy with 15 billion dollars is worried about "cashing in**". As I've stated numerous times, this is no longer about money, it's about control. That's imperative to understand. You don't worry about the money hidden under the mattress when you have a locked vault full of cash. Money is only an incentive for those who either don't have it or need more of it. Neither of those categories apply to Eric Schmidt.
So lets examine how badly the Tech guys and Trump aren't getting along, shall we?
March 2, 2016: Defense News • Google Executive Schmidt To Head New DoD Advisory Board. Source Here
Ah. He's working for the Pentagon to make it better. And this happens almost a full year before meeting with Trump. This doesn't look like someone playing both sides, this looks like a team player in a game that only has one team. This is political wrestling that would make Vince McMahon envious. If you want to dive deeper into how Eric Schmidt funded the non profit that started fake news, here's a previous Flatten the Curve post. Part #19
Attendees included Eric Schmidt and Larry Page of Google, Tim Cook of Apple, Satya Nadella and Brad Smith of Microsoft, Jeff Bezos of Amazon (who expressed his excitement that Trump’s administration could be “the innovations administration“), Safra Catz of Oracle, Chuck Robbins of Cisco and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook. Thiel’s business partner, Palantir CEO Alex Karp, attended as well.
Those are big names and big companies. But they all hate Trump, right?
Thiel has been instrumental in shaping Trump’s approach to technology, helping assemble a list of candidates for technical roles in the upcoming administration and reportedly bringing David Sacks and other long-time associates to the transition team. During his speech at the Republican National Convention, Thiel talked about spreading the prosperity of Silicon Valley to other regions across the country and cited space travel as one of America’s great technological achievements. “Instead of going to Mars, we have invaded the Middle East,” Thiel said.
I should point out that Thiel and Musk started PayPal together.
November 24, 2019: Business Insider • What do the founders of YouTube, Yelp, Tesla, and LinkedIn have in common? Apart from leading massively disruptive technology companies, their founders all share a common resume line item: employment at PayPal. Known for their entrepreneurial mindset and anti-establishment attitude, this elite group is known as the "PayPal Mafia," and they all put in time during the payment platform's early days some 20 years ago. Source Here
Oh. And Pete's instrumental to creating Facebook. Thiel became Facebook's first outside investor when he acquired a 10.2% stake for $500,000 in August 2004. He sold the majority of his shares in Facebook for over $1 billion in 2012, but remains on the board of directors. And he funded Hulk Hogan's lawsuit to take down Gawker. Told ya, it's just political wrestling to entertain us.
However, one of the biggest proponents of travel to Mars, Elon Musk, has also been one of Trump’s most outspoken critics. Musk donated to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and frequently denounced Trump, saying that the former reality television star “doesn’t seem to have the sort of character that reflects well on the United States.” But since the election, Musk appears to have warmed up to Trump. He was a late addition to the invite list for today’s meeting. The transition team also announced this morning that Musk will join Trump’s strategic and policy forum, a group of business leaders that will serve as an advisory committee to the president-elect. Source Here
Musk and Trump, a marriage made in heaven. It's destiny, I tell you, destiny. Or an act (don't worry Elon, I haven't forgotten about you) designed to make us believe that somebody up there is fighting for us down here.
Yet the inclusion of the quote about Mars and War in the Middle East stands out, wouldn't you agree? And we have environmental collapse triggers happening. Riots happening. Why those riots are also happening in Beruit, aren't they? And Isreal and Saudi Arabia don't get along with Lebanon, or the Hezbollah. And President Trump went from Suadi Arabia to Isreal, didn’t he? And wasn't there an explosion there recently? Must all be a coincidence. Let's get back to Pete the magical Thiel and see what else Hulk Hogan's buddy is mixed up in.
He co-founded Valar Ventures in 2010, co-founded Mithril Capital, serving as investment committee chair, in 2012, and served as a partner at Y Combinator from 2015 to 2017. Through the Thiel Foundation, Thiel governs the grant-making bodies Breakout Labs and Thiel Fellowship, and funds nonprofit research into artificial intelligence, life extension and seasteading. A co-founder of The Stanford Review, he is a conservative libertarian who is critical of high government spending, high debt levels, and foreign wars. He has donated to numerous political figures. At the 2009 Singularity Summit, he said his greatest concern is the technological singularity not arriving soon enough. Source Here
Singularity. Not. Arriving. Soon. Enough. Call me paranoid and pass the tin foil hat, but what Matrix code is needed to decipher his words intent? Not soon enough for what? Better Netflix selection? The Alien invasion? Godzilla awakening because of Fukushima? Are the Decepticons already here? Or have they been downplaying the ELE that's approaching? I'll take ELE for a thousand, Alex.
So he's into AI (he backed Deepmind and OpenAI) and life extension. He went to Stanford. He's also going to have his body cryonically preserved. And his Palantir surveillance is, well, nottofreakyououtoranything, everywhere. Palantir's first backer was the Central Intelligence Agency's venture capital arm In-Q-Tel. Then Palantir became Big Brother. Literally. The Palantir clients include the CIA, DHS, NSA, FBI, CDC, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, Special Operations Command, West Point, the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization and Allies, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. And Palantir is also being used by Banks, Hedge Funds, Financial Services, and other corporate clients.
Big Brother wants to be Palantir went it grows up.
Now, are you wondering why I started with Trump, Saudi Arabia and Isreal? Are you curious about how it goes from ex CEO of Google Eric Schmidt "playing" both sides of the fence to Palantir and Peter Thiel? Just sit right back and hold tight, cause I'm about to take you on a one way trip to a Brave New Normal World that's called 1984.
Warning. What you're about to read will make you forever question every officially sanctioned narrative. Trust me. Still game? Are you sure? Last chance. You're about to leave neverneverland and you can't go back. Alright. Let's go.
It's All Hidden In Plain Sight.
Let's talk about Epstein. Yep. Him. I've been strangely quiet about Jeffery haven't I? Nothing written about the Captain Pedo and his Amazing friends didn't mean there was nothing there, it just meant that I didn't find anything that indicated something deeper than a pedophile blackmail ring. And sex and political blackmail is as old as time itself. There's a reason they say the world's two oldest professions are prostitutes and politicians. Yet it turns out the professional pimp and the abducted teens may be playing a bigger role than we thought.
July 31, 2019: NY TIMES • Mr. Epstein’s vision reflected his longstanding fascination with what has become known as transhumanism: the science of improving the human population through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. Critics have likened transhumanism to a modern-day version of eugenics, the discredited field of improving the human race through controlled breeding. Mr. Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, which he confided to scientists and others he hoped to use as the site for seeding the human race with his DNA.
Welcome to the Island of Dr. Moreau. We're it's the monsters trying to make humans. Do you still think this was all about blackmail, cause it wasn't. Stop thinking in normal terms, because normal is dead, long live the New Normal.
At one session at Harvard, Mr. Epstein criticized efforts to reduce starvation and provide health care to the poor because doing so increased the risk of overpopulation, said Mr. Pinker, who was there. Mr. Pinker said he had rebutted the argument, citing research showing that high rates of infant mortality simply caused people to have more children.
Epstein criticized efforts to reduce starvation and provide health care. Hmmmm. My memory is foggy, but isn't there someone in Africa trying to provide health care and reduce starvation? Who could that be? Wasn't he into computers and had pictures taken on Epstein’s private jet? Wasn't it Bill Gates? Now why would Billy be hanging around someone who would vocally espouse an ideology that is completely antithetical to his stated humanitarian goals?
Also at the Indian Summer dinner, according to an account on the website of Mr. Brockman’s Edge Foundation, were the Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page and Jeff Bezos, who was accompanied by his mother.
Then there was Mr. Epstein’s interest in eugenics. Once, at a dinner at Mr. Epstein’s mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Mr. Lanier said he talked to a scientist who told him that Mr. Epstein’s goal was to have 20 women at a time impregnated at his 33,000-square-foot Zorro Ranch in a tiny town outside Santa Fe. Mr. Mr. Lanier, said he had the impression that Mr. Epstein was using the dinner parties to screen candidates to bear Mr. Epstein’s children. Mr. Epstein did not hide his interest in tinkering with genes — and in perpetuating his own DNA. Interviews with more than a dozen of his acquaintances, as well as public documents, show that he used the same tactics to insinuate himself into an elite scientific community, thus allowing him to pursue his interests in eugenics and other fringe fields like cryonics. One adherent of transhumanism said that he and Mr. Epstein discussed the financier’s interest in cryonics, an unproven science in which people’s bodies are frozen to be brought back to life in the future. Mr. Epstein told this person that he wanted his head and penis to be frozen.
More Epstein and Eugenics. Source Here
Now call me crazy, but there's some strangeness happening. Cryonics, don't die, just Let It Go and get Frozen. First Peter Thiel, now Epstein. Let's hope the AI Singularity arrives in time, right?
Now I wouldn't have even bothered with their shared interest of joining the Walt Disney Cryonics Club, if there wasn't more in play, and there's more in play.
August 9, 2019: TRT World • The billionaire shared the same personal network that included Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, infamous Blackwater founder Erik Prince, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, UAE Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.
According to investigative journalist Vicky Ward, quoting a meeting with Trump’s transition team, Acosta told a White House official: “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone.”
That's a bit of an exclusive club, kinda like being in the Mouseketeer CIA club. But, hey, nothing to see here, is there? But just in case, let's look into the company that Epstein worked with, Carbyne.
This single company, Carbyne, brought together a who’s who of power brokers and intelligence figures from multiple regions including Russia, China and the Trump administration itself, with Epstein at its heart. Officially, Carbyne provided high-tech solutions for emergency centres. In reality, it existed in a grey area giving it unprecedented access to private information, with significant potential for privacy abuse. Carbyne provides a service for police emergency centres, providing complete access to the caller’s camera and GPS, providing the dispatcher with a live video feed.
Ok. So Epstein and Thiel both are into AI, Surveillance, and Cryonics. President Trump was in Isreal and Saudi Arabia in May 2017. And who ended up in Isreal just afterwards?

Hey, one month after Trump visited the Middle East, Peter Thiel decides to take middle eastern vacation to give out business tips. And then Thiel must've reciprocated and invited the Fresh Prince of Saudi Arabia to get the all inclusive Palantir surveillance pitch. Smile for the camera everyone, cause the world's a stage and we're filming a world wide Truman Show.
April 7, 2018: Gulf News • Google, Thiel feature in Saudi Prince’s Silicon Valley tour. The Saudi delegation visited several Silicon Valley corporate campuses, including Apple Inc. and Facebook Inc. In addition to Facebook, where Thiel sits on the board, the Saudi delegation visited data-analysis start-up Palantir Technologies Inc and a trio of investment firms created by Thiel: Clarium Capital, Valar Ventures and Founders Fund. Thiel is chairman and co-founder of Palantir. Source Here
March 17, 2020: Forbes • These responders are now using a tool built in part by former members of Israel’s military intelligence—Elichai being one—that’s backed by Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who is now the company’s chairman, and a small, passive investment from deceased multimillionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. SourceHere
Ok look. I get it. Rich people make investments, those investments are bound to end up in the same company. But these companies aren't exactly run of the mill home security systems, are they? Nope. This is the kind of surveillance systems that the KGB or the Stasi could only dream of. And when you wish upon a star dreams come true. And Peter Thiel must be wishing upon a star.
Ok. Strap in, buckle up, and try to keep up, or you're gonna get left in the dust. Cause it's boom or bust from here on out, and we're gonna add it up like the count.
So Elichai owns Carbyne. Peter Thiel invested in Carbyne. And Carbyne is in the USA linked to the 911 system, and it's being used to fight the pandemic.
Forbes (Link Above) • Its founder thinks Carbyne’s tech could make the lives of 911 dispatch and healthcare professionals much less chaotic in the Covid-19 crisis. Carbyne relies on callers submitting themselves to self-surveillance via their own mobile phone. Once a caller uses their Android or iPhone to call 911 (85% of emergency calls now come from mobile devices), they receive a text message that asks for permission to get their precise location and access video from their smartphone camera.
Step right up and give your permission to be saved. Big Brother is looking out for you.
So Elichai used to work for the 8200. Cool name, right. I'm not sure about you, but that sounds pretty dystopian. And I've gotta say, that all of Technocrats that are promising us an AI utopia, sure seem to be getting ahead of the curve by building doomsday bunkers for a dystopia. And here we sit wasting our time Doomscrolling.
So what else has sprung up from the 8200? Have you ever heard about the NSO Group?
November 1, 2019 - WhatsApp identified an Israeli company, NSO Group, as having developed the spyware called Pegasus, which it held responsible for the breach. This disclosure was part of a lawsuit WhatsApp has filed against the NSO Group in a US federal court, saying the company was actively involved in hacking users of the encrypted chat service. As per the WhatsApp complaint the “target users included attorneys, journalists, human rights activists, political dissidents, diplomats, and other senior foreign government officials.” NSO’s spyware Pegasus has been reportedly used to target journalists in Mexico investigating drug cartels, rights group Amnesty International, human rights activists in UAE, activists in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. According to Israeli news reports, Saudi Arabia paid $55 million for its use. The contract was later frozen over the scandal alleging NSO software's role in Saudi Arabia tracking slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the months before he was murdered in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey. In India, 17 people, who are known to be targeted include activists and human rights lawyers. Source Here
Whoops. Do you remember Jamal Khashoggi? He was trying to expose Human Rights abuses against Saudi Arabia. And then Suadi Arabia decided to murder him, and confirm that they were abusing human rights. Jamal paid the ultimate price to prove his point. But who is selling the hacking tools? At this point they all seem to be springing up from members of the 8200, and the companies they started.
TRT - Link Previously Provided • DarkMatter, a UAE surveillance and intelligence group employing former NSA operatives was built on the back of a larger initiative to modernise Emirati intelligence and military operations. The group took part in at the Arab Future Cities Conference in November 2015, where it presented a vision of smarter, tech-driven cities, which caught the eye of Chinese officials. Smarter cities meant Big Brother-esque widespread surveillance installed throughout the UAE. Only two years later in April 25 2017, DarkMatter signed a Global Strategic Memorandum of Understanding with Huawei, a leading Chinese company, for the same ‘Big Data’ systems and ‘Smart City’ solutions. The middle man? None other than Erik Prince, who had gone from working for the Emiratis, to working for a Chinese billionaire. In suspect timing, the Memorandum of Understanding also took place right before China scaled up its total surveillance and crackdown on Uighurs in Xinjiang, China.
February 2, 2019: Reuters • Xinjiang is a major part of China's Belt and Road infrastructure network but the region has faced attacks blamed on members of the Muslim ethnic Uighur minority. Beijing has responded with a security clampdown condemned by rights groups and Western governments. Frontier Services Group (FSG), a Hong Kong-listed company founded by Prince, said in a Chinese-language statement posted on its website on Jan. 22 that it had signed a deal to build a training centre in southern Xinjiang. Prince is deputy chairman, a minority shareholder and a board member of FSG, a security, logistics and insurance provider. Source Here

Watch this video.

Chinese authorities are using a 911 mobile app to carry out illegal mass surveillance and arbitrary detention of Muslims in China’s western Xinjiang region. Source Here
Makes you wonder, doesn't it? Aren't we condemning China for the camps, and yet the West is helping to build those camps? Must be a big mistake. We didn’t know what was happening. And Erik Prince swears he didn't know. Honestly. He's not lying. Cross my heart and hope to die. Pinky swear.
Recap.
8200 leads to NSO and Carbyne. DarkMatter is in the UAE with NSA employees. The NSO hack was used to capture Khashoggi. Peter Thiel invested in Facebook, Facebook owns WhatsApp. Peter Thiel invested in Carbyne. Eric Prince works for and founded FSG, which built the Muslim reduction school. China is using similar tech to target Muslims and send them back to school. Carbyne 911 surveillance tech accesses your phone camera after you click on the link to give permission. So. Peter Thiel funds Carbyne. Eric Prince is working for the UAE developing security and the UAE ends up with Dark Matter, and then his company (FSG) is sold to China, and they build re-education centers, which uses technology like Carbyne, and that technology is being used in the USA.
Got it? Good. Because I'm seriously having a hard time keeping up with the behind the scene footage of this LARP.
Link Previously Provided • 1,400 people worldwide, including Indian lawyers, rights activists and journalist, were targets of an online spying campaign that used highly sophisticated spyware developed by an Israeli firm via WhatsApp. WhatsApp is at the centre of a global storm over privacy after it was revealed that at least 17 Indians and about 1,400 people worldwide had their phones breached through the social media app. Their privacy was compromised by surveillance technology so invasive that could read and transmit the entire contents of a phone as well as operate its camera.
WhatsApp, Doc, I think I need an appointment because I'm suffering from Mass Psychogenic Illness from too much Doomscrolling.
Do you want to get deeper? I mean really deep? Yes? Ok. Let's jump into the deep.
October 18, 2019: fortune.com - How a WhatsApp Tax Launched Massive Anti-Government Protests in Lebanon.
What a crazy New Normal World Order we live in. What are the odds that we have a WhatsApp hack tax protest and we also have a WhatsApp hack that uses your phone camera, while also using similar tech in the USA and China. That's inconceivable! That's incredible! Someone call the press and let them know about this! Uhm. Wait. Better not. You might get Khashoggid.
So Eric Prince is involved. Peter Thiel is involved. WhatsApp is owned by Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg owns Facebook, and Peter Thiel helped Facebook grow. And then there was this.
March 28, 2018: Daily Mail • Employee of Peter Thiel's company Palantir helped Cambridge Analytica harvest the data of millions of the Facebook users.

At this point, I think I'm going to need to buy a whole lot of tacks and string and make pciture maps on my walls. If we're all living in a Truman Surveillance Show, might as well play the part of the New Normal crazy conspiracy theorist, right?
January 17, 2017: The Intercept According to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, in December Prince attended the annual “Villains and Heroes” costume ball hosted by Mercer. Dowd wrote that Palantir founder Peter Thiel showed her “a picture on his phone of him posing with Erik Prince, who founded the private military company Blackwater, and Mr. Trump — who had no costume — but joke[d] that it was ‘N.S.F.I.’ (Not Safe for the Internet).”
No. Sanity. Fracking. Involved. Is more like it. This insanity can't pass for sanity, can it? And yet they label us crazy when we start to find the big picture, even if we aren't entirely sure what the big picture means.
The Intercpt Continued: In July, Prince told Trump’s senior adviser and white supremacist Steve Bannon, at the time head of Breitbart News, that the Trump administration should recreate a version of the Phoenix Program, the CIA assassination ring that operated during the Vietnam War, to fight ISIS. Such a program, Prince said, could kill or capture “the funders of Islamic terror and that would even be the wealthy radical Islamist billionaires funding it from the Middle East, and any of the other illicit activities they’re in.” Prince also said that Trump would be the best force to confront “Islamic fascism.” “As for the world looking to the United States for leadership, unfortunately, I think they’re going to have to wait till January and hope Mr. Trump is elected because, clearly, our generals don’t have a stomach for a fight,” Prince said. “Our president doesn’t have a stomach for a fight and the terrorists, the fascists, are winning.” Source Here
Sounds good, right? Kill people who kill people and maybe someday we won't have people getting killed. Killer idea! HEWDSHAWT! Grab your BFG and let's go BGH. It's a date!
But then why are these cell phone surveillance hacks companies being constantly linked with their names, and those hacks are being used to target journalists and human rights activists?
It's a small New Normal World Order after all. And it's getting smaller everyday. No worries though, Keep Calm and Carry On, We're All In This Together, and You're Either With Us Or Against Us. It's all good. That kind of thing could never happen here.

Over 240 lawyers urge Twitter to re-instate Prashant Bhushan's tweets

https://preview.redd.it/12jvhwfj2ii51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=9df21979336d964b7d4712d33a3ff90aa668edfa

Tl;dr

Today, 243 lawyers including senior advocates wrote to Twitter Inc. regarding its proactive censorship of Mr. Prashant Bhushan, a senior member of the bar committed to anti-corruption and human rights causes. The signatories to the joint representation have urged Twitter to reinstate Mr. Bhushan's tweets since there is no underlying judicial direction for removal of online content and in its absence, such proactive censorship is inconsistent with Twitter’s own content moderation policy, domestic law and international best practices.

Background

Contempt of court proceedings were initiated against Mr. Prashant Bhushan before the Supreme Court of India for posting tweets which criticized the past and present Chief Justices of India. The tweets were disabled by Twitter after the first hearing in the case on 22.07.2020 despite no judicial direction being issued by the Supreme Court for removal of the tweets till date. The webpages for these tweets now state that “This Tweet from u/pbhushan1 has been withheld in IN in response to a legal demand.”
While the tweets have been removed from Twitter's platform, their content has been reproduced by the Supreme Court in its orders and by the media in several news reports. As a result, the content of these tweets has become a part of the public record and it is widely available in the public domain. In this situation, it is unclear what purpose will be served by removal of the actual tweets from Twitter's platform except erasure of the historical record.

Standards for Intermediary Liability

We understand and appreciate that companies like Twitter must comply with local laws to continue offering their services in India. However, in the present case, established precedent of the Supreme Court of India in Shreya Singhal v. Union of Indiashields Twitter from any liability for failing to take down content unless a court order is passed asking it to do the same. In Shreya Singhal, the Supreme Court has clearly held that an intermediary can be found liable for failing to remove content only "upon receiving actual knowledge that a court order has been passed asking it to expeditiously remove or disable access to certain material."
The Manila Principles on Intermediary Liability similarly recognize that online content should not be restricted by intermediaries without an order by a judicial authority. The Manila Principles further clarify that any such court order must (i) provide a determination that the content is unlawful in the jurisdiction; (ii) indicate the Internet identifier and description of the unlawful content; (iii) provide evidence sufficient to document the legal basis of the order; and (iv) if applicable, indicate the time period for which the content should be restricted.
Finally, Twitter's own content moderation policy states that “if we receive a valid and properly scoped request from an authorized entity, it may be necessary to withhold access to certain content in a particular country from time to time.” In the present case, none of these criteria have been satisfied because the tweets were disabled by Twitter Inc. without any direction being issued by the Supreme Court for their removal.

Joint Representation by Indian Lawyers

The joint representation has been endorsed by 243 lawyers practicing in India, and the list of endorsees includes Senior Advocates, Mr. Dushyant Dave, Mr. Sanjay Hegde and Mr. Sanjay Parikh. The representation urges Twitter to reinstate Mr. Bhushan's tweets since there is no underlying judicial direction for removal of content and it warns about the long term consequences of the stance adopted by Twitter in Mr. Bhushan's case.
Such proactive removal of content in the absence of a court order represents a slippery slope, and by making such a concession, Twitter has given authorities precedent to demand censorship of online speech merely based on initiation of court proceedings. Taken to its logical conclusion, this could lead to a scenario where Twitter Inc. is required to disable all content with respect to which a notice or summons has been issued by a judicial authority, concerning underlying claims of infringement or defamation, even if there is no accompanying direction for content removal.
Companies like Twitter Inc. must adopt a consistent and principled stance before courts across different jurisdictions to insist on adherence to rights respecting legal standards available under domestic law, like the Shreya Singal precedent in Mr. Bhushan's case. Otherwise, in the long term, proactive censorship by intermediaries will weaken existing safe harbour protections for platforms and lead to arbitrary and disproportionate censorship of internet users in the developing world.

Hello everyone, today I decided to share a long form write-up that I have been working on for some time. I hope you enjoy. Other detailed and lengthy write ups about a variety of crimes can be found on my reddit profile - https://www.reddit.com/useQuirky-Motor
So...I read almost every book regarding the murder of Laci Peterson and the trial of her husband Scott Peterson. This is what I found.
During lock down I watched some documentaries about the story which I previously knew nothing about, and then decided to dive deep into the case. At first, I felt bad for Scott Peterson. It really seemed like the guy was hounded by the media and did not get a fair trial, even if he was guilty as sin. But instead of jumping to conclusions about his involvement, I decided to do some research and then read every book I could on the case. I read books from different perspectives. Books that touted Scott’s innocence as well as those which condemned him, I wanted a complete a picture as possible. Here is what I found.
Overview of the case- Scott Peterson was sentenced to death for the murder of his wife Laci and his unborn son, Conner in 2004. In 2020 it was announced that Peterson may get a new trial which prompted this piece. The most intriguing part about this case is that there was no “smoking gun.” Nearly all the evidence was purely circumstantial, which in a court of law is just as valid as physical evidence.
According to the Prosecution: Scott Peterson killed his pregnant wife Laci Rocha Peterson on either the evening of the 23rd of Dec. 2002 or the morning of the 24th of Dec. via a non bloody method such as smothering,or strangling. Then took her to the Berkeley Marina ninety miles away from their home and dumped her body from his new fishing boat that was unregistered, bought with cash, and unknown to his family and friends. Five months after Laci went missing, her torso and the remains of her son washed up on the shores of the San Francisco bay only 1-2 miles from where Scott was fishing that fateful day. She had no hands, head, arms, or feet. The prosecution believes that Laci’s body was weighed down with concrete anchors which caused only her torso to surface.
According to the defense: Scott Peterson last saw his wife on the morning of the 24th before he left for his warehouse where he did some work and then took his new boat, which they claim some people did know about, to the Berkeley Marina to go fishing for approximately one hour before driving back home to find his wife missing. His wife’s body was found near the spot he went fishing either through pure happenstance or because the real killers wanted to frame Scott.
Background
Scott Peterson was born to Lee and Jackie Peterson in San Diego, California in 1972. He was the youngest of seven children, four of whom he grew up with and was dotted upon because he was the baby of the family. By the time Scott was born his family was well off, although they hadn’t always been so. Scott attended private high school and played golf, even attending Arizona State University to play the sport on a scholarship. After a while Scott returned to California to attend community college and then eventually Cal Poly to study Agricultural Business. While in college he worked as a waiter and met a fellow student, Laci Rocha in 1994. By 1996 the couple moved in together. Laci graduated in 1997 with an ornamental horticulture degree and the couple married. Scott later returned to school and graduated in 1998. During this time Scott had a slew of affairs, one of which Laci apparently knew about. The couple did various jobs including owning a sports bar before moving back to Laci’s home town of Modesto. In 2000 with the intention of starting a family, the Petersons bought a home in a nice neighborhood. Laci went to work was a substitute teacher and Scott began work selling fertilizer for a European company called (ironically) TradeCorp. USA.
After 18 or 24 months of infertility the couple conceived their first child, a boy in May 2002 who was due on Feb. 10th 2003. Laci would disappear on December 24th, only six weeks before Conner’s due date.
Laci Rocha was born in Escalon, CA in 1975 to Dennis and Sharon Rocha who were dairy farmers. She has a brother, Brent who is four years her senior. At age two Laci’s parents split and she lived primarily with her mother. Soon afterwards, Sharon met her longtime boyfriend Ron Grantski who became like a step father to Laci. Her father Dennis remarried as well resulting in Laci’s younger sister, Amy Rocha. Laci was described as a talkative and vivacious person who wanted to be a mother and housewife more than anything. She loved entertaining and gardening and she always wore a smile. By the time she disappeared she had been with her husband Scott for eight years and was excited to have a baby.
According to court reports at the time of Laci’s disappearance, money was tight. Both Scott and Laci spent money freely and they had little expendable income and less than $2000 in savings. This was not a fact that was well known to friends and family, however.
Individuals of the case:
Sharon Rocha- Laci’s mother Dennis Rocha- Laci’s father
Ron Grantski- Sharon’s long-term boyfriend and Laci’s step dad
Brent Rocha- Laci’s brother Amy Rocha- Laci’s ½ sister
Lee and Jackie Peterson- Scott’s parents
Spurlock, Evers, Gonzalez, Brocchini, Grogan, Buehler– Modesto PD officers and detectives
Mark Geragos- Scott’s attorney Matt Dalton- lawyer on Scott’s legal team- fired by Geragos
Evidence used by the prosecution (and defense)
Below is a collection of the evidence the prosecution (and defense) gathered during the investigation. Police were first called to the scene of 523 Covena Avenue at 5:15 pm after a report that a woman, Laci Peterson, who was 8 months pregnant had gone missing. While some officers went to search the park near the Peterson home, other officers were dispatched to the home to do a walk-through of the house and speak to the husband of the missing woman, a 30-year-old man named Scott Peterson. Scott told officers that he left the home in the morning and that his wife, Laci who was watching Martha Stewart at that time, was planning on walking the dog a Golden Retriever named McKenzie, doing some grocery shopping, and baking gingerbread that day before they were due at her parents’ home for Christmas eve dinner. He said that Laci was wearing black pants, a white top, and her diamond earrings, diamond necklace, and a gold and diamond watch.
Scott said he worked for a while and then went fishing at Berkeley Marina, between Oakland and El Cerrito, California, before coming home at 4:45 pm and finding his wife gone. He did some cleaning and other things before calling his mother in law Sharon at 5:17 pm. He explained that Laci wasn’t home. She told him to check with neighbors and call Laci’s friends. By 5:32 pm Scott called back and said that she wasn’t there. Sharon decided to go to the park where Laci usually walked the dog. At 5:45 pm Ron Grantski called 911 to report Laci missing. Officers went to search the park where Laci walked the dog, other officers went to the Peterson home to walk through the scene and talk to Scott.
Information gathered December 24th
· Scott told officers that Laci was going to be walking the dog when he last saw her but according to her OBGYN, her yoga teacher, and the neighbors Laci had not been walking due to her advanced pregnancy. Amy Krigbaum and Tara Venable who lived across the street had not seen Laci walking the dog for weeks.
· Scott checked his cell phone voicemail at 10:08 am but then did not use his phone from 10:08-2:15 pm. Scott never told Laci his plans to go fishing and did not call her to let her know his plans or that he had left the area.
· After Scott’s famous “hey beautiful” call at 2:15 pm, he NEVER called Laci’s cellphone even after knowing she was missing
· Scott returned home to an empty house, Laci’s car in the driveway, and a dog in the backyard with a leash on and instead of calling Laci he…
  1. Dumped a bucket of mop water and placed that and the mops outside
  2. Took off ALL of his clothes including a sweater and put them in the washer and started the machine.
  3. He ate a snack
  4. He showered
  5. Then he called Laci’s mom, then checked with neighbors, then Laci’s step dad called the police
· When patrol officers came to the house, they noticed a variety of things which seemed off about the home. The scene was so strange that the officers called their sergeant who agreed that homicide needed to be contacted. Below is a thorough explanation.
By 6 pm the patrol officer, Evers, called for a detective as he believed the story to be more than a typical missing person report. He found two mops and an empty but damp bucket outside the door. It also appeared that the floor had been recently mopped. The sidewalk was wet. Scott explained that he dumped the bucket when he got home. In the bathroom, Laci’s curling iron was on the counter. There was an open bottle of ranch dressing on the kitchen counter, as well as the pizza box from the night before. There was also an open phone book on the counter, it was flipped to a full-page ad for a criminal defense attorney. Evers also found a bunched-up rug by the back door, which he described as looking like something heavy had been dragged over it. As soon as he noticed it, Scott straightened it out- it was never photographed. There was no evidence of a break-in and Laci’s jewelry and purse were untouched. Evers asked Scott to explain the morning again. Scott replied “I was fishing” and gave his parking receipt to the officer Spurlock despite not being asked to. He then had this conversation with Spurlock- who loves fishing.
Spurlock: What did you go fishing for?
Peterson: no answer
S: what did you use for bait?
P: first a pause… “some type of silver lure”
S: where do you keep your fishing stuff?
P: I keep it at my company’s storage facility.
P: later approached Spurlock and said “sturgeon”
· Scott explained to the officers that he made a morning decision to fish because it was too cold to golf (it was in the 40s) but instead of leaving right away he did work at the warehouse before fishing, even though he knew he had errands to run before dinner.
· He explained to the officers that he called Laci’s cell at 2:15 pm but never after that time despite coming home to an empty house with Laci’s car still in the driveway. The officers went outside to talk to their superiors as they arrived and the men relayed their findings to Sergeant Duerfeldt. The patrol officers were concerned that:
  1. Scott had no answer for what he was fishing for or what bait he used
  2. Scott produced the receipt for fishing without being asked
  3. The fact that Scott did not call Laci at any point after he realized he was missing
  4. The fact that Scott did not report Laci missing- Ron Grantski did
  5. Scott cleaning himself and his clothes before calling Sharon
  6. Open phone book ad for a criminal defense attorney
  7. The bunched-up rug near the back door
Duerfeldt decided that the patrol officers were correct- homicide detectives needed to be contacted. Scott’s family and supporters have used this to show that Modesto PD “rushed to judgement” and focused on Scott from the beginning. Modesto PD claims that they simply followed the evidence. Despite calling homicide, other officers continued to search La Loma park and canvassed the neighborhood looking for Laci. The K-9 unit was brought in to search the park and the surrounding area.
· Once homicide detective Al Brocchini arrived at the scene, he noticed several other strange things in the house such as the fact that Scott claimed to be fishing for sturgeon, but he was using incorrect bait for that fish, not to mention sturgeon was not in season.
· Brocchini also noticed an impression on the bed that was about five feet long that he thought was odd, as it was shaped like a wrapped-up body. Pictures were taken of that impression. Picture here- http://photos1.blogger.com/blogge1548/2104/1600/P37i.jpg
· Scott was seen loading three, 4’ tall patio umbrellas in to his truck in the morning according to a neighbor, but he never dropped them off at the warehouse like he told police he was going to. The umbrellas were all wrapped in individual tarps. The neighbor observed this between 9:20-9:40 am.
· An empty tarp was found among the patio umbrellas in the bed of Scott’s truck
· Scott told investigators they could search his warehouse but that it would be hard because there was no electricity. A later search warrant determined that was a lie- the warehouse had electricity including overhead fluorescent lights. No power outages had been reported.
· Concrete debris was found in Scott’s boat and the bed of his truck
· A small cut on Scott’s knuckle was observed
· Scott left the home between 9:30-10 am, (phone records show it was closer to 10) but the neighbor Karen Servas the neighbor found the Petersons’ dog wandering in the street with a leash on at 10:18 am, meaning that if Laci was alive when Scott left, Laci disappeared in a very short time frame.
· Scott bought a boat with cash ($1400) on Dec. 9th despite money being tight
· Scott did not register the boat
· Scott’s family or his friends Guy Miligi or Greg Reed did not know about the boat
Peterson supporters say someone did know about the boat, Bruce Peterson (no relation) knew! This is the man Scott bought the boat from.
· The boat was unused until the day of the 24th
· Scott did not make a morning decision to fish- On the 20th of Dec. he bought a two-day fishing license for Dec. 23rd-24th
· Scott did not know what he was fishing for that day
· Scott claimed later to be fishing for sturgeon which was out of season and illegal to fish for in Dec.
· Scott did not open the lures he had bought for fishing. They remained unopened in his truck
· Scott went fishing 90 miles away from his home even though he had plans for that evening and errands to run
· Scott passed nine other places he could have fished and instead went to Berkeley marina where he fished for less than one hour before leaving
· Scott took a 3 hour round trip to the marina and only fished for one hour

Information gathered December 25th
· During Scott’s interview he denied that he and Laci had marriage issues and told the detective that neither of them had had affairs
· Scott referred to Laci exclusively in the past tense during his first interview
· Scott asked Brocchini for the numbers of grief counselors even though Laci had only been missing for a few hours.
· When Brocchini pointed this out Scott said “I will need those numbers” for Laci’s family.
Here is the whole conversation:
As Peterson left the interview, he turned to Brocchini and had this conversation.
SP: “The only question I have is… what about resources available? You saw my mother in law tonight, um anyway…”
B: “what do you mean?”
SP: “Counseling and that kind of thing. Can you give use the numbers or do I have to search…”?
B: “I can give you those numbers I just don’t know, you probably aren’t going to get any answers today…”
SP: “yeah of course and there is not a need to call if we find Laci in the next days”
B: “yeah I agree I will get you those numbers.”
SP: “I will need them”
B” Ok I will get you the number for victim services (Laci had only been missing for 6 hours)
· Neighbors Tara Venable and Amy Kirgbaum tell the police on December 25th that the curtains of the Peterson home were drawn all day on the 24th- unusual if Laci was home. They also told police they were sad for Laci because the husband was away so much for overnight trips. They also said they had not seen Laci walking for “quite some time.”
· Neighbor Karen Servas put the Petersons dog away on the morning (10:18 am) of the 24th but did not see any other suspicious things in the neighborhood that morning. Karen also talked to Scott on the evening of 24th when he was looking for Laci and Scott told her he spent the day golfing, not fishing.
· According to Ron Grantski, Scott left the Dec. 25th press conference for Laci because he did not like reporters asking questions about him.
· On Dec. 25th Scott was interviewed a 2nd time this time by detective Grogan. The detective had accosted Peterson as he left the press conference. Scott refused a polygraph- which was within rights but others see as suspicious.
· After the interview Scott called Brocchini and asked an update on the search for Laci. Scott asked “Have you used cadaver dogs yet? Brocchini replied “Cadaver dogs are used for sniffing out dead bodies, have you given up hope on finding Laci alive? Scott did not reply. Laci had been missing for less than 24 hours at this point.
· This was the only time Scott ever contacted law enforcement to inquire about his missing wife.
Information gathered December 26th
· On the 26th Laci’s friends, Stacy and Lori were interviewed. Stacy thought it was strange that on Christmas day, Scott was vigorously vacuuming and re-vacuuming the laundry room area.
· Stacy’s boyfriend was a retired highway patrolman and during all the searches, Scott was carefully avoiding him, specifically.
· Both Stacy and Lori in separate interviews believed Scott was responsible for Laci’s disappearance. Both women also confirmed that Laci had stopped talking walks or walking the dog in early December.
· On the 26th in the afternoon the Medina family who lived across the street from the Petersons returned home to find their home ransacked. The Medinas left their home at 10:32 am on the 24th and did not return until the 26th in the afternoon, so the robbery occurred sometime in between those two times. The burglars stole a safe, some money, and some other valuables.
Information gathered December 27th Search warrants are executed on Scott’s home, business, and both vehicles
· When served the search warrants Scott said to Brocchini “Where’s the trust?”
· Investigators find the umbrellas that Scott said he was going to store at the warehouse, as well as the tarp coverings in the back yard of the Peterson home spread across several sheds.
· They also found the empty tan tarp and boat cover which were in Scott’s truck on the 24th. Both items had been placed under a leaky leaf blower in the garden shed. The items were so soaked with gasoline they had to be dried out for two days.
· The gas smell was so strong it delayed the use of a cadaver dog at the property for two days. Even after 48 hours the scent of gasoline confused the dogs and they were unable find anything.
· Some of the jewelry Scott said Laci was wearing was found in her jewelry box.
· The shoes Scott said Laci wore on walks were found in the home.
· The comforter was seized as it had two drops of blood on it near the end of the bed. The blood was later determined to be Scott’s.
· On the walls of the home Scott had four diplomas framed and displayed, three of them were fake. One of the diplomas was a bachelors in religious studies which Scott purchased on December 16th for $269.70 from phonydiplomas.com. Scott later explained it was a gag gift from Laci, but the diploma was purchased using Scott’s credit card and addressed to him in the mail. It is thought Scott wanted to show the diploma to his girlfriend, Amber Frey, as Amber wanted to go to school to study divinity.
· A sniffer dog was given some of Laci’s clothing and followed the scent into the middle of the street, rather than down the sidewalk indicating that Laci most likely left the area in a car, not on foot.
· In Scott’s boat a rusted pair of pliers with a black hair stuck to them were collected. Later testing showed the hair was consistent with Laci’s hair. MtDNA tests showed the hair belonged to a relative of Sharon Rocha.
· At the warehouse the cadaver dog hit on boat and boat trailer but not anywhere else such as outside the building.
· At Scott’s warehouse, debris from dry concrete and a water pitcher with concrete debris on the bottom is found.
· On the ground and boat trailer were four round circular impressions made of concrete residue. The rings were exactly the same size as the concrete anchor Scott had made for his boat.
When asked Scott was unable to produce the bucket he used to make the anchor he had in his boat. Scott denied making other anchors and provided three different explanations to what happened to the rest of the dry concrete, 1) he threw it away 2) he didn’t know what he did with it 3) he dumped it into a hole in his driveway (which was deemed unlikely at court by both defense and prosecution experts). Scott apparently bought 90 lbs of concrete to make one 8 lbs. anchor.
· Neighbors at Scott’s work Mr. Prater and Ms. O’Donnell were interviewed. Prater said he never talked to Scott but he saw Scott toting a bag of concrete into the warehouse on Dec. 20th. A receipt showed Scott purchased a 90 lbs bag of dry concrete mix.
· O’Donnell explained that Laci had used the bathroom in her warehouse unit on Dec. 20th or 23rd. The police thought this was to prevent Laci from seeing Scott’s boat. Further, the warehouse was so full it was difficult to get to the bathroom in Scott’s warehouse.
· Scott’s computers, both home and work, were seized and it was determined that Scott had been looking up tidal activity in the area of the Berkeley Marina as early as Dec. 8th.
· The home computer was also searched. On the morning of the 24th the computer was used to access The Gap website and look at a woman’s scarf. There was a pop-up ad for a sunflower umbrella stand, and then finally Scott’s personal email was accessed. This happened from 8:40-8:45 am.
· The same day as the search warrant, a woman called a rape crisis line to report that she was sexually assaulted a week or so prior. The woman claimed she was abducted by a group of people in a brown van who assaulted her as part of a satanic ritual. They also told her they were going to commit and Christmas murder that “she would read about in the papers.” This woman never made a police report as far as I can tell, but the rape counselor turned this info over to Modesto PD. The police found the people and van in question and processed the brown van for evidence, surprisingly no evidence of any crime was found in the van. When the police were done with the vehicle the family never returned for it and Geragos bought the van, but he never found anything or used the van at trial- leading spectators to believe that the van held no evidentiary value.
Amber Frey
When exploring this case, it is hard to overlook the character of Amber Frey. On December 29th 2002 a woman named Amber Frey called the Modesto PD and reported that she has been having a romantic relationship with Scott Peterson. Investigators were intrigued and interviewed her on December 30th 2002. Amber had first met Scott in November 2002 through her friend Shawn Sibley. Shawn Sibley met Scott at a work conference in early November 2002. One day after the conference a group of conference-goers had drinks in the hotel bar and watched a baseball game on TV. While goofing around at the bar Scott, who no one knew was married, asked Shawn Sibley what he should put on his name tag to help attract women. She thought about it for a moment and then said he should put “I'm rich” on his name tag. Scott said he was going to put H.B short for horny bastard. At this point some of the people with Shawn and Scott left thinking the conversation was getting too flirty. Shawn and Scott hung out for several more hours but Shawn was wearing an engagement ring and told Scott that she was in a committed relationship. Scott was not wearing a ring. The next day at the conference Shawn and Scott exchanged business cards and Scott went on his way. He called Shawn a couple weeks later and asked if she had any friends who would want to meet up with him. Shawn thought about it and later suggested her friend Amber.
Shawn Scott talked on the phone several times but Scott never mentioned that he was married. In mid-November Scott first met Amber Frey. Amber was a 26-year-old single mother of a toddler who worked as a massage therapist near Fresno, California about an hour's drive from Modesto. From their first blind date on, Scott acted like a perfect gentleman buying Amber flowers and he even got a private dining room for them for their first date. While some Scott supporters will try to tell you that Amber and Scott's relationship was not very serious and the Amber and Scott went on only four or six dates, this is not exactly true. Amber and Scott did only see each other six times but each time was a multi-day visit.
Their first date was a whole weekend together at a hotel where Scott bought champagne and strawberries; Amber said she felt like the perfect man had walked into her life. By the second date Amber was impressed that Scott was making her dinner and buying her daughter gifts. He also picked up Amber's daughter from daycare, helped the young family get a Christmas tree, and talked about meeting members of Amber's family.
Throughout their entire relationship Scott lied, not just about being married but about what he did for a job and other things as well. Scott made it seem like he was some sort of international businessman whose job took him around the world. He told Amber that he could not spend the holidays with her because he was going to go on a hunting trip, and then going to Maine for Christmas, Paris and Brussels for New Year’s, and then Guadalajara, Mexico for work. None of these things were true.
In early December Shawn Sibley heard from an acquaintance that Scott Peterson was married. Shawn was so shocked that she called Scott and demanded to know if he was married. Scott eventually calmed her down and said that he had been married in the past. Shawn was furious and said she would call Amber and tell Amber that Scott was married but Scott begged Shawn not to do this and insisted that he would tell Amber himself. That was on December 8th the same day Scott began looking at tidal activity on his computer.
On December 9th Scott went to Amber's home and told her that he had something very serious to discuss with her. He cried and Amber could not calm him down. After a while he finally explained that he had not been truthful with Amber. He then told Amber that he had “lost” his wife and this would be his first holiday season without her. He expressed that he never told Amber about this because it was such an upsetting situation. When Amber said she wasn't mad at Scott for telling her this, he was suddenly relieved and seemed so happy that Amber now knew the truth. Amber pressed “you are not married currently, right?” And Scott said "no, not currently" after this Amber never pressed him for details. After all she didn't want to make a guy upset or make him talk about such a traumatic experience. Amber admitted that she was not clear on whether or not this meant Scott’s wife had died or that she had left him.
On December 14th both the Petersons and Amber had Christmas parties that they were supposed to attend. Scott told Laci that he could not go to the Christmas party because his boss has had unexpectedly flown in from Europe but in reality, he was going to Amber Frey's Christmas party. In pictures that later became famous, Laci attended a Christmas party alone that evening while her husband went to Amber's boss's formal Christmas party where he was photographed with Amber.
After this Amber and Scott did not talk for a while because of Scott’s “extensive travels”. On December 29th a friend of Amber's called to inform her that a guy with the same name as her boyfriend was accused of causing his wife’s disappearance in Modesto. After some internet research Amber decided to call the task force and told the story that is detailed above. The recorder was put on to Amber cell phone and Amber agreed to record her conversations with Scott for the next several weeks and talk to Scott the next day December 31st.
With the recording device in place, Scott who was at a vigil for his missing wife answered a call from Amber and the two were on the phone for 70 minutes. During this conversation Scott told Amber that he was at the Eiffel Tower celebrating New Year's with his friends Pasqual and Francois. He laughs and tells Amber about all the cool things he has been doing in France, surrounded by mourners worried sick about Laci. On the opposite of the line Amber sounds like she is about to cry.
In other conversations Scott told Amber things such as he wanted to get a vasectomy because he was so adamant about not having any children. He even said that if Amber did want more children and that would be a breaking point for their relationship. He said the only child he could ever think of having in his life was Amber's daughter Ayiana.
These phone calls went on for several weeks even after Amber was revealed by the media to be Scott's girlfriend. About a week after the New Year’s call, on January 4th, Scott told Amber that he was the man who had a wife missing. When Amber presses Scott about it by saying things like “you told me you lost your wife and now your wife is missing how am I supposed to believe you about anything?” Scott replied by saying things like “I can't talk to you about that.” Or “I can’t tell you about that right now.” Amber did not get a confession or any vital information out of Scott but her recorded conversations went to show Scott’s motive and character. Their conversations continued until February 19th. Scott also made other odd statements such as Laci’s baby was not his and that "never cheated on you, Amber." After this line, she said "Never cheated on me? Scott you're married! Explain that one to me!"
Amber ended up being a very good witness for the prosecution. Her attorney Gloria Allred coached her on how to act on the stand. Amber did a superb job of telling the jury that she was not here to explain whether or not Scott killed Laci and Conner; she was there simply to explain what she knew and her role as it possibly pertained to motive. She did not fall apart on cross-examination and she came across as a sweet, naive girl who'd been tricked by Scott Peterson not at all like the homewrecker the media painted her as. Peterson told Amber a variety of things during the recorded conversations. One of the things he told Amber is that he wanted to tell her the whole story but couldn't. Whether this was because he knew he was being surveilled or because he did not want to tell Amber the truth is unknown.
Amber was announced to be Scott’s girlfriend on January 24th 2003. The police did not want to make this announcement but National Enquirer had discovered the story so MPD decided to announce the information before the press could leak it.
Car evidence
Another suspicious thing that Scott did was on three different occasions Scott rented a vehicle and drove to the Berkeley Marina where he would get out of his car look around but never stay for more than two minutes. The police observed Scott making these trips three different times in two different rented cars while they were surveilling him. While Scott supporters have always said that this was to look for witnesses who may have seen him at the marina that day, the police said that they believed Scott was looking to see whether or not Laci’s body had surfaced. Scott's family will also tell you that he had to rent these cars for work. One time Scott rented a truck, but the other times he rented a Lincoln town car. So, unless Scott was selling fertilizer out of the back of a rented car, he had no reason to get these cars except for to disguise himself. The days he went to the marina were January 5th, 6th, and 9th.
No longer missing- Conner and Laci found April 13th and 14th
Laci and Conner were found in the same area but separately on different days, Conner on April 13th and Laci on April 14th. Laci was badly decomposed; barnacles were on her bones and most of her organs except parts of her uterus were gone. There was a large hole in her womb from decomposition. Conner was somewhat decomposed but he was fully intact. The medical examiner thought this was because he was protected inside of Laci until her uterus decomposed expelling him into the bay. The medical examiner could find no cause of death for Laci and ruled that Conner died due to his mother’s death at approximately 33 weeks gestation. Conner seemed to be inside of Laci until shortly before he was found. The medical examiner explained to the jury that Conner most likely floated out of his mother’s abdomen due to gasses building up in her body. Additionally, his umbilical cord was torn, not cut or clamped and he had no injuries of any kind. He was not even bruised. Further, Laci’s cervix was closed indicating she had not given birth recently. The ME also explained that there was 28 cm worth of tape around Conner’s torso, head, and shoulders. It is not a nice neat bow but rather a tangled length of tape or twine. To me it actually looks like the remains of a plastic shopping bag. Laci had no discernible cause of death and Conner’s death was ruled to be because of Laci’s death. *more details about this are in the defense section.
Finding and identifying the bodies is what triggered the arrest of Scott Peterson.
Fleeing the scene
One of the most made-for-tv parts of this story is how Scott was arrested. Scott Peterson was arrested in San Diego where his parents lived. When Scott was apprehended he had dyed his hair and beard blonde, was carrying his brother's ID as well as $15,000 worth of American cash, copious amounts of Mexican currency, 4 cellphones, a knife, extensive survival gear, a tent, a shovel, water purifying equipment, a gun, Viagra pills, and all of this clothes. When asked if Scott dyed his hair, he told everyone that the hair had become bleached from swimming in the pool. When asked why he had $15,000 on him Scott said that Jackie had accidentally made a withdrawal of $15,000 and gave him the cash. His family has also claimed that Scott was using his brother's ID in order to get a discount at a local golf course however, Scott had never been scheduled to play at that golf course. Additionally, why would a man who has enough money to accidentally get $15,000 out of the bank need to use his brother's ID to get several dollars off a golf game? It is speculated that at the time that Scott was arrested he was planning on fleeing to Mexico. Scott's family will tell you that Scott only had enough things in his car to go on a camping trip however, a full inventory would show that Scott had pretty much everything he owned packed into the car. Scott was booked into the county jail and charged with double murder on April 18th, 2003.
Scott’s lies, conversations, and explanations
Ron Grantski arrived at the Peterson house on Dec. 24th after searching the park and approached Scott. “Did you get in a game of golf this morning?” “No, it was too cold I went fishing instead” replied Scott. “what were you fishing for?” asked Ron. Scott said nothing.
On Dec. the 24th, Scott sauntered over to Sharon who had just finished scouring the park for Laci and said “You know if they find blood anywhere that doesn’t mean anything. I’m a sportsman. Just look at my hands, I could drop blood anywhere.” A searcher promptly reported the statement to police.
On December 28th, Scott told detective Grogan that they may find blood Scott’s truck because he cut himself all the time and bled on the door of the truck. Grogan thought it was weird that Scott had an explanation for such a minor thing without being asked.
Scott claimed that he had his brother’s ID when arrested so he could get a local’s discount at Torrey Pines golf course, even though he had no reservations to play golf there.
Scott gave one media interview after news about Amber broke. Scott said on national TV that he told the police about Amber during his first interview. This was a complete and utter lie. Scott did not tell the police about Amber until January after the police showed him the pictures they had of Scott with Amber. Further, he said on national TV that Laci knew about his affair with Amber and the “nothing could break us apart.”
Throughout the case Scott lied about everything. He even lied about things that had no relevance to case. He lied to neighbors about fishing that day. He lied about not having a second debit card. He lied about his affairs and whether or not Laci knew about them. He lied about his cars and phone calls he did not make. Scott also had a history of lying, for example he told his girlfriend Janet Ilse that he had traveled extensively through Africa but this was not accurate and served no purpose. He lied to dish network about moving abroad. He lied about buying his house with cash.
Scott’s other affairs
Another thing that needs to be discussed is Scott's affairs. Many people seem to think that Amber Frey was the only affair Scott had while he was married to Laci Peterson. This is a misconception. Scott had at least four affairs while he was married to Laci. These affairs were sometimes casual and sometimes serious. Scott dated one woman, Janet Ilse for 5 months and told her he wanted to meet her family. Janet actually walked in on Scott in bed with Laci when she tried to surprise him one day. Janet had no idea that her boyfriend was married. Another woman a girl named Michelle had been dating Scott but she said they had only gone on a couple of dates. Scott also briefly saw another woman named Katy. Another unnamed woman had a one night stand with Scott in Las Vegas and then of course there was also Amber Frey. What we can learn from these affairs is the fact that Scott was a chameleon. Scott dated many women and always seemed to morph into whatever they needed. One of Scott’s mistresses was a “health nut” when Scott was dating her, he began hiking and running and doing other healthy endeavors. When Scott dated a vegetarian, he gave up meat. When Scott was dating Amber, he decided to pretend he had a degree in Divinity. It is critical to remember that Scott made all of these transformations while married to Laci and was able to hide his actions pretty well. Finally, when Scott was dating and married to Laci, he was able to be, at least from the outside, a perfect husband and doting father. Of course, being an adulterer does not mean that you are a murderer but it does give some insight into the type of person that Scott was and I think it's important as it shows us that Scott could morph into whoever he wanted to be for a short time.
