ICIJ is the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists who were responsible for the Panama Papers



The FinCen (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, Dept of Treasury) Files are based on leaked suspicious activity reports.



Just a reminder that FinCEN fined Trump $10 million.

Finally can say what I've been working on for a year!

It's called the #FinCENFiles

an investigation into corruption on a global scale, the famous banks that facilitate it, and the government agencies that watch as it flourishes.

100+ newsrooms. 400 journalists. And a podcast!



ActBlue records were broken last night in donations

Proud to be part of this:

Democratic donors gave more money online in the 9 p.m. hour after RBG died, $6.2 million, than in any other single hour since ActBlue was launched 16 years ago.

Donors broke the record again in the 10 p.m. hour giving $6.3 million, more than $100k/min

Trump Blames Protests on 'Radical' Lessons About Slavery, Racism

President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced school curricula that emphasize the impact of slavery and racism on American history and blamed “left-wing indoctrination” for nationwide protests against police brutality.

“Patriotic moms and dads are going to demand that their children are no longer fed hateful lies about this country,” Trump said in a speech at the National Archives in Washington.

The president claimed U.S. schoolchildren are taught that the U.S. was “founded on the principle of oppression, not freedom” and that they should “feel ashamed of their own history,” a curriculum he called “radical.”

The president on Thursday criticized as “toxic propaganda” the “1619 Project,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning public school curriculum developed by the New York Times that orients American history from the date that the first slave ship arrived in what later became the U.S. He equated certain racial teachings with “child abuse” and argued that the focus on historical sins threatened “to impose a new segregation.” Trump announced he would soon create a “1776 Commission” in an apparent effort to rebut the 1619 Project. The commission will “promote patriotic education,” Trump said.

Trump's Doral Hotel to Host a Confab of Anti-Vaxxers and Leading QAnon Champions

But next month, as the COVID-19 virus could very well be entering an expected second wave, one of Trump’s hotels will become a hub for anti-vaccine activism. Some of the most notorious figures in the anti-vaccine movement are set to converge on the president’s Trump National Doral Miami resort in early October for a MAGA-world conference.

The anti-vaccine figures won’t be the only fringe GOP movement represented at Trump’s property during the American Priority Conference or “AMPFest,” which runs between Oct. 8 and Oct 11. They’ll be joined by top QAnon conspiracy theory promoters, including one with a history of anti-Semitic remarks.

Anti-vaccine heavyweights Robert Kennedy Jr. and Del Bigtree are scheduled to appear in early October at Doral Miami for the MAGA-heavy AMPFest, a conglomeration of Trumpworld personalities now in its third year that was started by a handful of conservative internet activists as a more explicitly pro-Trump alternative to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Kennedy, who has become perhaps the leading anti-vaccine figure in the country while being denounced by other members of his own family, appears near the top of AMPFest’s program. So does Bigtree, who once donned a Nazi-style Jewish star in opposition to government mandates for people to take the measles vaccine. Kennedy even qualifies as a headliner on AMPFest advertisements online, pictured alongside other scheduled speakers like Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), former Trump adviser Roger Stone, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, and conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza.

A secret cabal is taking over the world. They kidnap children, slaughter, and eat them to gain power from their blood. They control high positions in government, banks, international finance, the news media, and the church. They want to disarm the police. They promote homosexuality and pedophilia. They plan to mongrelize the white race so it will lose its essential power.

Does this conspiracy theory sound familiar? It is. The same narrative has been repackaged by QAnon.

I have studied and worked to prevent genocide for forty years. Genocide Watch and the Alliance Against Genocide, the first international anti-genocide coalition, see such hate-filled conspiracy theories as early warning signs of deadly genocidal violence.

The plot, described above, was the conspiracy “revealed” in the most influential anti-Jewish pamphlet of all time. It was called The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It was written by Russian anti-Jewish propagandists around 1902. It collected myths about a Jewish plot to take over the world that had existed for hundreds of years. Central to its mythology was the Blood Libel, which claimed that Jews kidnapped and slaughtered Christian children and drained their blood to mix in the dough for matzos consumed on Jewish holidays.

Navalny, Awake and Alert, Plans to Return to Russia, German Official Says

BERLIN — Aleksei A. Navalny, the Russian opposition leader who is recovering from being poisoned, has spoken to a German prosecutor about the attempt on his life and says he plans to return to Russia as soon as he has recovered, a senior German security official said on Monday.

Mr. Navalny had been in a medically induced coma at the Charité hospital in Berlin and it was not clear what condition he would be in once he regained consciousness. But the security official, who was briefed on his condition, said Mr. Navalny seemed mentally sharp.

“He’s fully aware of his condition, he’s fully aware of what happened and he’s fully aware of where he is,” said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity to talk candidly about the case.

The news came hours after the German government announced that laboratories in France and Sweden had confirmed that the substance used to poison Mr. Navalny was a form of the nerve agent Novichok, results that match Berlin’s own findings and provide additional confidence that the Russian state was involved.

What in the hell is the Bay of Pigs award?

https://twitter.com/CaslerNoel/status/1305183338005757955

Sleepy Joe Biden has spent 47 years in politics being terrible to Hispanics. Now he is relying on Castro lover Bernie Sanders to help him out. That won’t work! Remember, Miami Cubans gave me the highly honored Bay of Pigs Award for all I have done for our great Cuban Population!


I thought ‘Bay of Pigs’ was the pool at Mar a Lago. P.S. you used the word ‘sp*c’ to describe hispanics in your ‘Apprentice’ days and let thousands die in Puerto Rico.

The group that published the Panama Papers is getting ready to drop some more articles

https://twitter.com/ScottMStedman/status/1304163848031629312?s=20

I'm reliably told that the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the group that published the Panama Papers, have massive tranches of leaked financial records from FinCEN and are preparing to publish a slew of articles.


https://twitter.com/ScottMStedman/status/1304164856820506626?s=20

I don't know the subject matter. I have heard the name of one of the banks involved, but I'm not certain enough to report that, yet.

One financial regulator source I spoke to is NOT happy.

This, according to one source, led to the unusual FinCEN statement last week. https://fincen.gov/news/news-releases/statement-fincen-regarding-unlawfully-disclosed-suspicious-activity-reports


Statement by FinCEN Regarding Unlawfully Disclosed Suspicious Activity Reports
Immediate Release
September 01, 2020
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is aware that various media outlets intend to publish a series of articles based on unlawfully disclosed Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs), as well as other sensitive government documents, from several years ago. As FinCEN has stated previously, the unauthorized disclosure of SARs is a crime that can impact the national security of the United States, compromise law enforcement investigations, and threaten the safety and security of the institutions and individuals who file such reports. FinCEN has referred this matter to the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Inspector General.





Brian Williams is interviewing Edward Snowden tomorrow 11 pm ET

Don't ask me why. Do you think Russia would continue to host Snowden if he wasn't giving them something in return?

This ought to move the needle with women voters. Not.
