LinkedIn

I first met Anthony on LinkedIn approximately summer of 2019, where we had our first chat and discussed our work, careers, and projects.

We kept up from time to time regarding news and events.

Wolf of Malta

Anthony is also known in some circles as the “Wolf of Malta”

S.O.S. – Text Message

On Friday May 29, 2020 I received a message from Anthony seeking advice from me. Anthony complained of 53 hacking attacks, persons attempting to break into his home, his bank accounts and stocks stolen, and Huobi was currently not releasing his funds. He reported that he had not eaten in four days.

Censorship

As Anthony and I attempted to connect with each other on various social media, I witnessed that both Facebook and LinkedIn would deactivate his accounts shortly after he established them.

Why all the interference? Is Anthony being targeted/silenced/erased off the Net? Why?

He reports that he has consulted for over a dozen different start-ups and initiatives involving ICOs only to be locked out of the project after a short time and he has never been paid for his services. Over a decade worth of work COMPLIMENTARY so it seems by the Wolf of Malta.

According to Anthony, the $90 billion dollar amount was an exaggeration and he estimates that the true value of Bitcoin that he owned in May of 2020 was approximately $30 billion dollars worth.

He tells me that this is what has been stolen from him:

Goldman Sachs stocks, JP Morgan stocks stolen, Cargo Coin Stolen; Bitcoin, Ethereum, Zapaygo, OPU Labs, Lotus Energy etc.

Tik Toc censored, Instagram censored, Facebook deleted 7 times, LinkedIn 9 times, Google and e-mail 10 times.

Twitter

A quick search on Twitter revealed that several companies were bragging about Anthony coming on board as an advisor but yet, he has never been compensated for any of it according to him.

In this tweet Cargo Coin lists Anthony as a new advisor: https://twitter.com/thecargocoin/status/1037829983220195328?s=21.

Anthony Detained by Police

Anthony was detained in July, 2020 by Poland Police after he reported a robbery. They drove him 400 miles from his home (which he described as torture) and tried to force a psychiatric examination against his will. Anthony was released on July 5, 2020.

WOLF OF MALTA – UPDATE

RED ALERT 🚨

UPDATE: Anthony Abunassar released on July 5, 2020. He tells me that Legnica Police were trying to force him into mental health after he reported a robbery.

He tells me many men (three having matching tattoos) are following him who he suspects are hired special forces to steal wallets.

He cannot speak via voice so I am trying to decipher via text. He is in temporary housing at the moment and relayed that he fears for his life. – July 6, 2030 9:22 A.M.

WOLF OF MALTA – S.O.S.

WOLF OF MALTA – S.O.S.

I am providing protective services for Anthony after I detected that he has become a victim of life sabotage. In the past six months almost every area of his life has been targeted and opportunities obstructed. He has experienced censorship on social media, all of his funds are being blocked or have been stolen. He now faces homelessness and poverty.

He is experiencing many of the same symptoms that tortured Barclays investment banker, Edmund JM Dunne endured. The goal of the opposition is to drive a target to suicide.

During the years surrounding the #LIBOR scandal there were 90 suspicious banker deaths; both homicides and suicides where it was determined that employers were cashing in on tax free life insurance policies. Let us not lose another.

Please reach out to Anthony for employment opportunities or donations to help keep him safe and grounded.

Conclusion

Anthony has an interest in developing monetary solutions involving Bitcoin.

However, it appears he is suffering from some classic targeting traits; career sabotage, cyber attacks, locked out of bank accounts and funds, attempted physical break-ins, and censorship.

One of my theories is that he may be targeted for his knowledge of the origins of Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. His theory, according to him, is that the opposition is looking for $80 Billion cash in wallets.

I am providing protective services to Anthony in regards to suicide prevention which is the purpose of this documentation. I am inviting the global community to assist in monitoring the situation for Anthony’s safety and protection. – CMC June 18, 2020

State of Delaware Abandoned Property Account

Anthony tells me that he left all of his stocks and bank account dormant in USA for 14 years. When he tried to withdraw, he detected that USA moved his funds into the Abandoned Property Account. When the check finally arrived 17 months later, Anthony burned it in a rage. When I asked him about this he said, “When you can’t eat for several days, you go CraZi. A person will go crazy if a chocolate bar becomes stuck in the machine.”

Anthony Released From Jail

Anthony contacted me on March 17, 2021 a free man. I wished him well in rebuilding his life as he now needs to find a safe place to stay and a way to support himself.

On March 19, 2021 he sent me this message on Telegram seeking assistance as he believes that his life is in danger:

“I am Anthony Abunassar Ex Goldman Sachs JPMorgan Rothschild in London

Retired 13yrs ago working on Bitcoin

For over 1year I have been attacked by an Ai computer system which:

⁃ destroys my Wifi 2-3 times per day

⁃ Reboots and reconfigures my computer multiple times a day

⁃ Deletes my Facebook LinkedIn Google e mail accounts and WhatsApp

⁃ Blocks my Bitcoin trading accounts

⁃ Blocks attempt to sell Bitcoin to survive

⁃ Deletes multiple bank accounts and blocks all transfers 7-15 days

⁃ men at 00:00 at night have been attempting to cut through my metal front door

In short my life is in danger and I urgently require anywhere safe to stay near Warsaw poland

God Bless

Anthony”

Update – September 23, 2021

The original records of this blog have been altered mysteriously. Anthony has been residing in the basement of a friend in Warsaw since March of 2021. He tells me that he often does not have anything to eat, he only has one change of clothes and one jacket. He is sleeping on the floor and he has no access to utilities or heat. Winter is coming and I am worried that he will freeze down there. Several of us are attempting to send him money for food but all of his accounts are blocked making it extremely difficult.

BlackRock and Vanguard Group

This post was just censored by LinkedIn:

Who Owns Big Pharma + Big Media?

“BlackRock and the Vanguard Group, the two largest asset management firms in the world, combined own The New York Times and other legacy media, along with Big Pharma.

Drug companies are driving C O V I D -19 responses — all of which, so far, have endangered rather than optimized public health — and mainstream media have been willing accomplices in spreading their propaganda, a false official narrative that leads the public astray and fosters fear based on lies.

Vanguard and BlackRock are the top two owners of Time Warner, Comcast, The Walt Disney Company and News Corp, four of the six media companies that control more than 90% of the U.S. media landscape.

BlackRock and Vanguard form a secret monopoly that own just about everything else you can think of too. In all, they have ownership in 1,600 American firms, which in 2015 had combined revenues of $9.1 trillion. When you add in the third-largest global owner, State Street, their combined ownership encompasses nearly 90% of all S&P 500 firms.

Vanguard is the largest shareholder of BlackRock. Vanguard itself, on the other hand, has a unique structure that makes its ownership more difficult to discern, but many of the oldest, richest families in the world can be linked to Vanguard funds.

…showing it “undermines competition through owning shares in competing companies” and “blurs boundaries between private capital and government affairs by working closely with regulators,” and one would be hard-pressed to not see how BlackRock/Vanguard and their globalist owners might be able to facilitate the Great Reset and the so-called “green” revolution, both of which are part of the same wealth-theft scheme.

BlackRock and Vanguard own the world.”

NEW RULES FOR THE GLOBAL HEDGE FUND GAME

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are being used as a cover while governments sell us off to the highest bidder, and all of natural life becomes the new frontier for data monetization in the digital world as we creep ever closer to a one world government and centralized control.

If you do not understand Impact Investing and Human Capital Bonds, you will not understand the rules of this new game.

“Seventeen goals were adopted by the 193 member states of the United Nations in 2015. The stated intention was to eliminate poverty and protect the planet.

They’ve essentially set the rules for the global hedge fund game that will run on data extracted from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors.

There are two parallel programs of financialization: 1) people as human capital and 2) nature: carbon, energy, stormwater, etc.

The sensor networks will be incorporated into smart city planning…

In 2009 the UN advanced a Global Green Deal. The policy brief was prepared in the aftermath of the housing crisis with the intention of directing stimulus money into “green” economic activities managed through the The World Bank, centering technology and innovative finance.

2009 was also the year the The Global Impact Investing Network was founded.

Today, the United Nations Development Program is working in cooperation with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development to set global standards for impact measurement that will drive investment, in part, into SDG projects. This effort, the Impact Management Project, has too many participants to list (2,000!) but includes Ronald Cohen’s Social Finance, Bain & Company spin-off, The Bridgespan Group and Larry Fink’s BlackRock, the largest asset manager in the world.” – Alison McDowell

ON NATURE:

“It’s about financializing the productivity of bees, “ecosystem services” to profit social impact markets. Massachusetts Institute of Technology has robo-pollinators ready to go. Due to EMF and nano-particles most invertebrates will die, food grown in warehouses. That is what World Economic Forum is about.

ROBIN HOOD FOUNDATION

Robin Hood Foundation: https://lnkd.in/gTHD7ZaP

New game for hedge funds…

Paul Tudor Jones who made his fortune in cotton futures founded the The Robin Hood Foundation. The Robin Hood Foundation is very active in Impact Investing which privatizes public welfare services through public / private partnerships.

Why so many hedge funds involved? It starts to make sense when you realize the endgame is to create a futures market in Human Capital Bonds so that the hedge funds can keep thier casino going.

See, Central Banks Intend to Lay Claim to Bodies and Minds: https://lnkd.in/gCAaskAX

Robin Hood is a left-leaning nonprofit associated with the financial industry that has been criticized for ineffectiveness at its stated mission of alleviating poverty in New York City despite massive fundraising successes.

Founded by in 1988 by hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones, it has been described by the The New York Times as “a favorite charity on Wall Street and among hedge funds,” leveraging its connections to wealthy hedge fund and financial industry leaders to become the largest grantmaking organization of its kind in New York City.

Some of its high-profile supporters have included disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, hedge fund billionaire George Soros, former Soros associate and hedge fund billionaire Stanley Druckenmiller, Children’s Defense Fund leader Marian Wright Edelman, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner, The Home Depot co-founder Kenneth G. Langone, former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw, ABC News host Diane Sawyer, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, and the CEOs of major companies such as Lehman Brothers, GE, Goldman Sachs, Bear Sterns Asset Management, and Universal Music Group.

Robin Hood has been criticized for a lack of transparency that is at odds with the reporting and metrics-driven demands it makes of grant recipients, as well as for its connection to hedge fund industry groups that advocate for favorable tax treatment that decreases revenues to governments that provide public services to low-income residents.

Robin Hood has raised more than $3 billion.

The U.S. Government is planning on privatizing public services and handing over powers to mandated agencies.

Federal Reserve System & Uncle Sam hope to turn the economy around by data mining / monetisation of; children, students and the poor. A system that runs on mass surveillance, Blockchain, Tokens and Smart Contracts.

What is a National Investment Authority?

The National Investment Authority (NIA) is a proposed new federal entity, modeled after the New Deal-era Reconstruction Finance Corporation. See: https://lnkd.in/gGXMW2e5

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden’s nominee for the comptroller of the currency, is scheduled to testify in front of the Senate Banking Committee this Thursday, November 18, 2021


See: https://lnkd.in/g5wGxpn6

The proposed NIA would be made up of two components: a “National Infrastructure Bank (NIB), as well as and a National Management Corporation (which she nicknames “Nicki Mac”), which would serve to invest in green technologies. A 2020 article published in The New York Times reported that the proposed NIA would function in a manner similar to the Federal Reserve, and compared the NIA framework to the Reconstruction Finance Corporation created in 1932.

Saule is actually saying the quiet parts out loud. She eludes to the fact that now the public will not feel cheated out of their pensions becasue there is this new game being set up at the Fed. Basically, it is about keeping capital moving and here is proposed a never ending circle as in her words, “ Finance is like a shark, it never stops”.

(Ahem) It can’t stop or the whole system falls apart. Here is the global financiers savior strategy; stakeholder capitalism through public / private partnerships.

(Psst) It is a fake game.

THE GAME BOOK

“Our Global Coaliton for the Rule of Law is open to all nations, agencies and brotherhoods equally. We believe that in order to solve our most complex problems, first we must face the truth.

The truth that we are focused on as of late is the Impact Economy, the new game being built for hedge funds. The Impact Economy is how the central banks, United Nations, The World Bank, International Monetary Fund and the World Economic Forum plan on turning the global economy around…

By tracking and data mining our most vulnerable for profit.”

The Impact Econmy is a plan by the global financiers to privatize public services in education, health, housing etc for purposes of data monetization to profit hedge funds in a Human Capital Bond futures market. This game is being built right now in a “hush hush” manner ( as no media is exposing this ) and a key figure is Paul Tudor Jones of Tudor Investments who is also the founder and CEO of the The Robin Hood Foundation. Every year he hosts a benefit gala for the foundation. Everyone who is anyone wants to attend this famous gala because…

Paul has “the book”. The book of formulas that holds the metrics to the Social Impact Investments that the game runs on. The Robin Hood Foundation is a poverty tracker and a testing ground for several Social Impact pilot projects.

Robin Hood Foundation website here: Website here:
https://lnkd.in/gT32rfEc

This new game is being sold to us a benevolent but the truth of the matter is that Paul Tudor Jones made his fortune in cotton futures and we have detected that this latest “game” is an outward sign of the degradation of late stage capitalism as it is, in essence, DIGITAL SLAVERY by data mining the poor for profit.

…just an extension of exploitation under the guise of “doing good”. This is Stakholder Capitalism, and what they are claiming, is the life force of bodies and minds.

Designing the game. Public / Private Partnership are innovative debt products facilitated by the privatization of public welfare services in health, housing and education, to name a few.

Paul Tudor Jones of The Robin Hood Foundation and Stanley Druckenmiller, George Soros’s former fund manager have been teaming up and for the past 20 years. These two men have been using The Robin Hood Foundation to fund a 167 page book.

This book of equations calculates the economic return on various Social Impact Investments; if you give a poor kid glasses, if you give their aunt housing, if you solve their parents addiction…

Geoffrey Canada who was in charge of Harlem Children’s Zone now has his own consulting firm and he goes around to all the “Promise Zones” around the country to pitch all inclusive wrap around services which allows data monitoring over the entire span of a child’s school years. This raises the concerns about long term surveillance, not only is it creepy, it normalizes it.

Los Bancos Centrales Pretenden Reclamar a los Cuerpos y las Mentes

Estamos llegando a un punto en el que ya no es sostenible en nuestra trayectoria actual, en términos de consumo de bienes materiales. Este “Gran Restablecimiento” que se está enmarcando como capitalismo de partes interesadas, como la nueva versión más amable del capitalismo, esencialmente significará condicionar a las personas para que “vivan” dentro de huellas físicas más pequeñas y espacios virtualizados en entornos digitales. Estamos siendo empujados al mundo virtual. Ahí es donde está sucediendo el nuevo modelo económico de crecimiento capitalista.

La infraestructura ya se ha configurado para crear tanto los espacios del mundo físico de Realidad Aumentada, como la red espacial, y luego está este mundo paralelo que está vinculado al mundo exterior que es un mundo virtualizado de juegos. La idea de que viviremos en estos juegos y que tendrás un avatar que saldrá de Epic Games en el Research Triangle Park y su Unreal Engine. Acaban de lanzar Meta Humans, que es un software que permite a las personas crear representaciones muy precisas de humanos en un espacio digital muy rápidamente, algo que solía llevar mucho tiempo. Para que puedan virtualizarlo literalmente. Ha habido mucha discusión sobre Deep Fakes y lo que eso significa vivir en un mundo virtual: estos mundos. La red espacial conectada a redes de sensores, Internet de las cosas, Internet de los cuerpos. Hay mucho más por planificar que interactuará tanto con la tecnología portátil como con la tecnología de bio-sensores que se está desarrollando.

Todo es I + D militar. La investigación surge de un espacio militar. Existiremos como personajes en su mente. Así es como lo imaginan. Aquellos en el poder imaginan que seremos virtualizados casi como personajes en el juego de nuestras vidas y empujados a espacios virtuales para consumir artículos digitales. Incluso cuando se nos permita salir al mundo real real, seremos rastreables y rastreables a través de tecnologías portátiles y este tipo de estado de bioseguridad global que se está implementando con estos sistemas de pase. Los sistemas de identidad digital rastrearán nuestro cuerpo real como ese personaje en el espacio físico real y también en el espacio virtual.

Hay un cambio hacia algo llamado Globalización 4.0, que es la siguiente fase de la globalización en la que no solo se trata de trabajo basado en pantallas de plataformas, sino también con robótica háptica y controladores para que usted se siente en su habitación y controle una fábrica al otro lado del mundo. Toda esa competencia por ese “trabajo” estará mediada a través de su identidad digital en los sistemas blockchain. Todo esto está en proceso, pero aún debe construirse. Las redes de sensores deben construirse. La codificación debe construirse. El entrenamiento de la inteligencia artificial y los sistemas de aprendizaje automático aún debe desarrollarse. Bajo la administración de Obama hubo un gran cambio hacia la educación STEM (ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas). Este impulso es muy limitado en la literatura, el pensamiento creativo a menos que haya sido en robótica.

Un gran impulso hacia STEM porque lo que aquellos en el poder sabían es que su plan era construir una red espacial para construir la Internet de los cuerpos, para construir este planeta prisión global esencialmente y que necesitaban que los niños fueran participantes dispuestos a hacer que eso sucediera & que sucedería bajo la apariencia de un juego divertido. Codificaría estos juegos y normalizaría el mundo en el que vive de entornos de juego. Incluso hoy en día, en las aulas de las escuelas hay un impulso por los sistemas de gestión del comportamiento que están gamificados donde eres una caricatura y los maestros les dan a los niños puntos y guiones por su buen comportamiento que luego pueden intercambiar por artículos digitales. Se trata de condicionar a los niños para que vivan en una economía virtual, que es la forma en que el modelo de crecimiento capitalista pretende moverse. Va a ir hacia adentro en esta otra dimensión que es un mundo virtual. Pero los niños tienen que codificarlo a través de Minecraft, que es propiedad de Microsoft.

LA INTERNET DE LOS CUERPOS
“Antes de tomar ese jab del“ software de la vida ”de ARNm, considere las implicaciones más amplias de unirse al Internet of Bodies del WEF. Este informe de RAND sobre riesgos y oportunidades de IoB fue financiado por Jacques DuBois, ex presidente de Swiss Reinsurance Ltd. ” – Alison McDowell, una llave en los engranajes

Microsoft también posee HoloLens, que es tecnología militar y está trabajando en la robótica háptica y la programación de ADN está vinculada. La idea de hacer que los niños se entusiasmen con el código de Minecraft, que es esencialmente un sistema de juego y un sistema de construcción de mundos virtuales y tiene el suyo propio. capa económica – es normalizar que así es como ocurre la vida.

En este momento, la gente está realmente obsesionada con bitcoin y criptomonedas y esta percepción de dinero fácil, una fiebre del oro en espacios de criptografía expansivos donde muchas personas que no están inmersas en el fondo de bitcoin, que son nuevas en esta área, no necesariamente siguen desarrollos paralelos en el sistema de moneda digital de la banca central. La forma en que lo veo es que, en última instancia, lo que viene son mercados de capital humano, mercados para controlar a las personas como personajes en este videojuego en línea porque con la automatización realmente no necesitarán tanta gente para hacer el “trabajo”. Ese trabajo se subcontratará a A.I. y robótica.

Por lo tanto, necesitan un nuevo centro de ganancias para los seres humanos que quedan en la ecuación y que son esencialmente desechables, desposeídos por esta próxima ronda de recintos que están sucediendo. Lo que va a suceder es en este “juego”: el juego se encuentra en un entorno inteligente en el que se te rastrea dentro de un entorno inteligente y estamos siendo normalizados para aceptar este seguimiento de contrato, así como en un entorno gamificado.

Se han establecido sistemas completos de finanzas que se denominan “inversión de impacto social”. Se les enmarca como benevolentes. Se enmarcan como la solución de la pobreza y la reparación del medio ambiente que se basan en una idea de “datos de impacto” que esencialmente permite la vigilancia de datos generalizada de las poblaciones de los ecosistemas y la financiarización total de todo eso. En realidad, esto se alimenta a través de los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible de las Naciones Unidas, que si la gente no mira de cerca lo que está sucediendo con esos objetivos, en realidad son una extensión ahora del Foro Económico Mundial. Es la captura corporativa de necesidades reales aparentes en torno a la pobreza y la devastación ambiental. Pero el sistema de seguimiento para ejecutar el capital global, para solucionar aparentemente el problema como análisis de datos, requiere la implementación de estas redes de sensores que esencialmente matarán al planeta por extraer los minerales raros para obtener energía para hacer funcionar el centro de datos, el agua para enfriar los datos. Center, la “basura electrónica”. Pero necesitan capturar la mente progresista a través de esta idea de sostenibilidad y equidad para crear un golpe de inteligencia artificial de todo el planeta, de la vida en el planeta. Suena un poco fantástico, pero eso es lo que está sucediendo en este momento.

Mercados de capital humano, identidad digital y los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible de las Naciones Unidas
https://wrenchinthegears.com/2020/03/12/human-capital-markets-digital-identity-the-united-nations-sustainable-development-goals/

Los sensores inteligentes están entrando. Los satélites están subiendo. La gente ha sido condicionada a pensar, sin duda, que si dice sostenible, es bueno. Nunca sabrían que es Exxon quien está detrás. No investigan de dónde viene el dinero para estos, y el elemento basado en el miedo que ha surgido a través de la situación de salud durante el año pasado ha hecho que la gente esté realmente dispuesta a hacer lo que sea, en términos de un nivel de vigilancia incluso increíble. y restricciones a las libertades civiles en nombre de la seguridad. Todo ha sido muy alterado. Es difícil comprender cómo se ha vuelto así.

Ahora, con lo que viene con esta automatización planificada de la tierra, todos los humanos, incluida la comunidad blanca, entran en esa categoría desechable. En mi opinión, lo que tenemos que volver a visitar a medida que nos empujan a su videojuego virtualizado y militarizado de cumplimiento y mejora del comportamiento de acuerdo con estos objetivos de desarrollo sostenible es un regreso a, una afirmación de la insurgencia indígena, de los niños de la tierra, de reciprocidad natural en la relación correcta con la tierra, que es contraria a todo lo que realmente está llegando a través de este mundo simulado tecnocrático diseñado industrialmente que está siendo eliminado por los que están en el poder.

En el espacio físico, el objetivo son estas identidades interoperables, las identidades autónomas como se llaman, se nos venden como “protección de la privacidad”, que podemos ser dueños de nuestros propios datos y que seremos mucho más valiosos. Ha habido una puerta trasera que se ha integrado en blockchain. Se llama Protocolo Enigma que desarrolló el MIT y que les permite extraer datos no cifrados. Los mercados de futuros que están entrando en línea, que es el lado financiero, Goldman Sachs, UBS Bank, Deutsche Bank, Vatican Bank, SoftBank, para que estas personas muevan su capital en futuros humanos, porque lo que se está configurando ahora son mercados de futuros en comportamiento. cambio y eso es necesario porque si imaginamos que la última crisis económica mundial estuvo relacionada con la vivienda, que crearon estas obligaciones de deuda sintética para canalizar el capital global y, a medida que se derrumbó en la década siguiente, la riqueza solo ha continuado volviéndose más concentrada.

El siguiente producto sintético de la deuda que pueden usar, lo único que es más grande que una vivienda, son los cuerpos humanos. De modo que los cuerpos humanos se están reempaquetando como obligaciones de deuda futuras. Creo que esto es lo que está inherentemente detrás de la demolición económica global: hacernos dependientes del estado, ofrecer Renta Básica Universal (RBU) como parte de este dinero para permanecer en el juego, y que seremos controlados por nuestro sistema digital. sistemas de identidad. Nos convertiremos en una carga de productos básicos de deuda para el estado a través de un nuevo sistema que se está implementando llamado “Financiamiento del pago por el éxito”, que literalmente está privatizando todo el sistema de bienestar social y transformándolo en una oportunidad de inversión en capital humano, que ellos pueden titularizar. nosotros y apostar: ponnos en caminos hacia la superación personal, ya sea mejorando tu salud, mejorando tu salud mental, dejando las drogas, consumiendo drogas, ahora están legalizando todos estos psicodélicos, administrándote como una serie de programas de atención continua de acuerdo con para medir el cambio de comportamiento, y luego apostar a si cumplirá o no. Ese es su nuevo juego. Ese es el juego definitivo que están planeando; tanto tú como persona real como tú como personaje virtual, cumplirás con el camino en el que te han puesto.

MILLONARIOS, MILLONARIOS y ahora GENTARIOS!

Los mercados de futuros se crearán a partir de estos nuevos productos de deuda y los ganadores de los fondos de cobertura globales serán los “Peoplenaires”.

Están cambiando el complejo industrial penitenciario mundial por una prisión al aire libre donde en lugar de guardias hay trabajadores sociales, proveedores de atención médica, educadores. Ellos son los que vigilan y se aseguran de que usted permanezca en su camino de superación personal en su RBU. Lo comparo en gran medida con observar lo que sucedió con las comunidades indígenas y es por eso que A.I. es colono colonizador – cuando esta premisa de destino manifiesto implicó el traslado de los ocupantes existentes, que estaban conectados a estas tierras ancestrales, a diferentes áreas, quitando su independencia económica, quitando su cultura. Eliminando sus relaciones directas con el medio ambiente, haciéndolos dependientes del estado y luego rompiendo tratados y no cumpliendo obligaciones y rompiendo familias y tradiciones culturales. Toda esa premisa está avanzando bajo la Agenda 21, llevándonos a megaciudades donde esencialmente todos somos Lakota. Este es el destino que nos sobreviene a menos que podamos contar con esa historia pasada y llevarla adelante.

El Foro Económico Mundial deja muy claro que a través de la inteligencia artificial, la computación cuántica, 6G y la biología sintética, la élite global tiene la intención de rediseñar a la humanidad para sus propios fines retorcidos. Ellos visualizan un exclusivo mundo turístico destinado a los ricos y sus robots. Las masas, comedores inútiles, serán eliminados, pero de manera rentable a través de una estructuración creativa de la deuda. El próximo “gran corto” no serán los paquetes de hipotecas tóxicas, sino los futuros del capital humano compuestos por niños pequeños pobres, ciudadanos que regresan, discapacitados y ancianos.

La sociedad está mirando hacia la eugenesia de alta tecnología y se vende como innovación disruptiva. Las cadenas destinadas a unir a las familias en este nuevo sistema económico como productos de datos comerciables son los pasaportes biométricos de salud. El Proyecto Commons, una asociación de la Fundación Rockefeller y el Foro Económico Mundial (WEF), tiene la intención de controlar a las masas utilizando datos de salud en tiempo real que dictarán los derechos de acceso al trabajo, la educación y el empleo. Los registros digitales de vacunación se convertirán, en efecto, en pases de esclavos.

No tenemos más remedio que hacer todo lo que esté a nuestro alcance para descarrilar esos planes. No solo nos oponeremos a la fusión del hombre con la máquina, sino también a la privatización de los sistemas de beneficio público como pago por oportunidades de inversión exitosas. Quieren rastrear a los “comedores inútiles” como el ganado, y monitorearnos en el panóptico de las ciudades inteligentes usando teléfonos con pasaportes de vacunación (pases de esclavo) y eventualmente tecnologías implantables (chip) y vestibles.

Cuando James Bullard, el director ejecutivo de la Reserva Federal de St. Louis, pidió realizar pruebas a todas las personas todos los días esta primavera, hay que preguntarse si estaba pensando en los biosensores de grafeno que transmiten datos de salud en tiempo real a entornos de detección inteligente. En este nuevo y valiente mundo de preparación para una pandemia, financiación de la seguridad sanitaria, bonos de vacunas e índices de bloqueo de Goldman Sachs, los bancos centrales pretenden reclamar cuerpos y mentes.

Crypto Currency es el caballo de Troya para atraer a las personas a la tecnología Blockchain. Están tokenizando TODO, no solo piense en moneda. Los bonos de impacto social y el pago por acuerdos exitosos están diseñados para basarse en datos. Son las “métricas de impacto” las que permiten a los más ricos del mundo beneficiarse de la miseria. La idea general es que a los problemas sociales se les asigna un costo, lo que crea una compensación que se utiliza para financiar “soluciones” “basadas en evidencia”. El complejo industrial de la prisión, construido para extraer ganancias brutalmente de los cuerpos negros que fueron exagerados por la fase anterior de globalización, es una de las mayores compensaciones de costos. Pero las enfermedades crónicas como el asma, la diabetes, las enfermedades cardíacas y el envenenamiento por plomo también son importantes.

La premisa es que si “arregla” a una persona pobre antes de que sea encarcelada, diabética, subempleada o mentalmente enferma, reduce el costo para los contribuyentes y el inversionista puede tomar una parte del diferencial de costos como inversión. Los filántropos, que actúan en nombre de los intereses financieros y tecnológicos, financian a los académicos de las instituciones de élite para formular ecuaciones de “capital humano” que justifiquen esta empresa depredadora. Los inversionistas globales están financiando “soluciones” basadas en datos para problemas sociales con el entendimiento de que continuarán ganando dinero con la pobreza, la miseria y el trauma siempre que se mantenga bien administrado. Además, las personas que pasan por estos sistemas se convierten en productos básicos para la minería, no para su bienestar, sino para rehacerlos como datos interoperables en cuadros de mando para carteras de inversión. Aquí es donde hemos aterrizado. Si no resistimos ahora, nuestro destino estará sellado.

Vida reducida a métricas almacenadas por National Interoperability Collaborative por Stewards of Change para la creación de perfiles predictivos de inteligencia artificial. Escalar la tecnología para establecer la infraestructura global para la Inversión de Impacto Social, lo que permite a los financieros globales utilizar los datos agregados recolectados a través del libro mayor interoperable de blockchain para rastrear de manera eficiente el impacto de sus inversiones e intervenciones para el retorno de la inversión. Alentar a los inversionistas de impacto a calificar el riesgo de los ciudadanos a través de intervenciones codificadas y resultados de comportamiento específicos de preferencia en billeteras electrónicas, forzando el cumplimiento de los ciudadanos y el pensamiento grupal en una variedad de métricas vinculadas predominantemente a los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) de las Naciones Unidas, como la educación, la atención médica , seguridad climática y empleo.

Ya han estado preparando a los niños, otorgando puntos de habilidades e insignias por excelencia en STEM y ciberseguridad (GCHQ) y robótica (Lego). Obtienen vales de buen comportamiento mientras consumen IA “personalizada”. planes de estudios financiados por contratistas de defensa. UNICEF respalda un software educativo “innovador” en el que los niños ni siquiera tendrían que saber leer: codificarían mediante gestos en auriculares de realidad virtual con controladores hápticos. Mire la marca de la realidad virtual nubia que UNICEF está implementando en Kenia. A estos niños africanos, literalmente, les están robando sus sentidos dados por Dios y se están convirtiendo en baterías para alimentar la mente colmena de un planeta completamente militarizado y moribundo. Privada de historia, humanidades, arte, música, deportes, juego libre y naturaleza, la próxima generación no conocerá la vida fuera de la caja de Google.

En los próximos años, los multimillonarios tienen la intención de obligar a las masas, que han sido expulsadas de sus trabajos anteriores por los bloqueos a codificar este estado de bioseguridad en la realidad. El plan es volver a capacitar a las industrias de la Cuarta Revolución Industrial a través de Acuerdos de Reparto de Ingresos (ISA, por sus siglas en inglés) en los que las personas firman contratos para que sus futuros salarios se embarguen para devolver a los “inversores” en su capacitación.

En 2018, David Cooper de Purdue Research Foundation, participó en un panel sobre ISA en la conferencia anual Arizona State University – Global Silicon Valley. Dejó muy claro que anticipaban la apertura de un mercado de acciones muy grande en deuda titulizada para educación superior (ahora reentrenamiento posterior a Covid, enmarcado como aprendizaje permanente). La plataforma para bursatilizar la deuda es Edly. Edly fue cofundada por Christopher Ricciardi, el abuelo de las obligaciones de deuda garantizadas. Como recordará, fueron los CDO los que jugaron un papel importante en el colapso de la economía global la última vez. Una vez más, la historia no está en el pasado, está muy presente y cada vez que los poderosos juegan a los pobres.

El futuro parece sombrío y extremadamente autoritario. Bienvenidos a la tecnocracia.

MAPPING “THE GAME” – THE NEW GAME FOR HEDGE FUNDS

Interactive map by Alison McDowell who writes at ‘Wrench in the Gears’. https://wrenchinthegears.com/

The Impact Economy is how the United Nations, The World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and the World Economic Forum plan on turning the global economy around. By monetizing our collective data (and eventually all of natural life) to build a futures market in human capital bonds.

Independent researcher Alison McDowell from Philadelphia has documented interlocking interests starting from Pegasus Park. This park is a 23-acre future-focused campus in Dallas, Texas that encourages collaboration, problem solving, and a healthy dose of good fun.

“State-of-the-art facilities where life science and healthcare innovators turn their discoveries into high-performing ventures.

Flexible office space and community to enable the social impact sector to collaborate and solve big problems.”

Pegasus Park website: https://pegasuspark.com/

What are the “high performing ventures” you may ask?

This map includes connections between; U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research labs, Japan Moonshot Project, Nano Systems and Technology, Zyvex Labs, Texas Instruments, Lyda Hill Philanthropies, Goldman Sachs, MacArthur Foundation, TACC, Dallas Independent School District, Data Trust, Dell Technologies and many more.

BIG DATA and GLOBAL FINANCE

“Through predatory public-private partnerships, global financiers are in the process of digitizing not only our education system, but many other aspects of public service delivery. This 10-minute video provides an overview of “Pay For Success” and social impact bonds, detailing how their operations hinge on intrusive and oppressive collection of data from our classrooms, homes, jails, and clinics:

VIDEO: https://lnkd.in/g6DwjA-e

By defining “success” in narrow terms suited to outcomes-based contracting, powerful investors will control how public services are delivered. Securitization of debt associated with program operations will turn our lives, including those of our children, into fodder for financial speculation. YouTube originally categorized this video as a comedy; perhaps based on the whimsical nature of the collages. After watching it, however, I’m confident you’ll see it’s truly a horror show. A slide share version of the video can be viewed here and a PDF of the script is available here: https://lnkd.in/gj9U8HM9

The artwork was prepared with scissors and construction paper at my kitchen table with the goal of making this critical information accessible to a wider audience. My hope is that it will pique your interest and spur you to explore the linked resources that follow.”

World Bank a security risk to the world order? Article written by Lars Schall 2013

Karen Hudes

Former senior legal counsel at the World Bank turned whistleblower Karen Hudes talks about the corruption inside the World Bank and her personal saga to find out about it. She says a worldwide currency war is certain and NATO in jeopardy, if the wrongdoing isn’t finally addressed. 

By Lars Schall

Karen Hudes studied law at Yale Law School (J.D.) and economics at the University of Amsterdam (M.Phil). She worked as a corporate and securities lawyer at a major New York law firm and for several years at the Export Import Bank of the US, before she became a senior counsel in the legal department of the World Bank (1986 – 2007). Her personal web site can be found here: http://www.kahudes.net.

Lars Schall: Dr. Hudes, let’s talk about the World Bank, which is often described as a “Bretton Woods organization,” since it was officially founded at the famous international conference in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire in 1944. However, the plan to establish this bank (and the International Monetary Fund) originated years before with the highly secretive „War and Peace Studies“ that were conducted by the Council on Foreign Relations and the US State Department, while the money for the study came from the Rockefeller Foundation. (1) Given this background of being part of the „Grand Area“ design and strategy for the post-war world order, isn’t the World Bank really a tool to exercise American hegemony?

Karen Hudes: I take issue with one part of that question – when you say, “American hegemony.” If you unbundle the political structure inside the United States, it’s not what you see is what you get.  It’s not that the American citizens are the ones that are running the country. There is a very wealthy group that is secretly, through domination of the press, trying to keep the citizens in the United States in the dark. And so when you say a tool of “American hegemony,” the answer is it is a tool of hegemony but I would take the “American” out of the equation. What you saw in the last presidential election was massive amounts of foreign money coming in, in an attempt to influence voters. (2) That’s the group that I’m talking about and I would be very happy, as a sidebar at some point, to discuss who that group is, where they are, and what they’re doing. Because I didn’t know about that group when I started on my saga, but I found out about them later on. Now I try to tell them that they have to start behaving themselves. They are not above the law; they think they are, but they are subject to the law.

L.S.: Okay, then let us go straight down to the nitty-gritty: Can you name the individuals and institutions of that group? 

K.H.: I’ll tell you what I can do; I can point you to a very good study that was done by three systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, ranked as the best university in continental Europe. What they did was examine the interlocking ownership of the world’s 43,000 transnational corporations using mathematical modeling tools. Are you familiar with that study?

L.S.: Yes, I am. I believe you are referring to a study which showed basically that a small group respectively “super-entity” of 147 financial institutions and multinational corporations is pretty much in control of the world economy. (3) 

K.H.: Yes, that’s right. So, it’s whoever is behind that group which is in control of 1 percent of the investments but that 1 percent through corporate interlocking directorships is now in control of 40 percent of the assets and 60 percent of the revenues of this set of 43,060 transnational companies. That’s who that group is. Now, do I know who the individuals behind that group are? They’re very good at secretly hiding, so I’m not going to hazard a guess. But once we get the legal machinery in place, we will find out in great detail who these individuals are, and they will be playing by the rules along with everybody else on this planet.  

L.S.: Before we come back to that issue: How do you evaluate the World Bank’s track record in general? 

K.H.: It’s a magnificent place that has been hijacked by that group, so you really can’t blame it for some of the terrible things that have happened.  But some of the most talented people in the world end up there.  In particular, the group of World Bank whistleblowers that I have been working with is a dream team. They are fabulous, and by working together we have succeeded in exposing what the „super-entity“ of financial institutions was trying to take away from the people around the world behind their backs.  I wouldn’t call it a “Coup d’État” because we have simply taken back what was rightfully ours. 

So, the World Bank is a mixture which includes that group of whistleblowers. Their lives have been really, really severely damaged by the power of that group that was trying to prevent them from doing their jobs. When the World Bank renovated its headquarters in 1997, an architect/construction engineer tried to prevent a 70% cost overrun caused by mismanagement. Can you imagine, an organization that’s teaching everybody how to run projects has a cost-overrun of $220 million dollars over the estimates?  Anyway, he warned that this project was going to have the overruns, and he was fired in gratitude. Where is this man now? He’s managing projects for China. Anyway, when we were mentioning him as a whistleblower, he said: “I don’t want this publicity; I’m not a whistleblower. I was simply doing my job as a professional project manager and architect.” But some people, their lives were just completely wrecked. 

So that’s what the World Bank is: you’ve got 5 percent who are fighting for justice, you’ve got human resources secretly managed by the „super-entity“ of financial institutions, and you’ve got everybody else in the middle taking cover where they can.  

L.S.: Why should anybody care about the World Bank and its actions? 

K.H.: It’s an institution at the very center of the world financial system owned by 188 countries.  This institution can prevent a currency war and can also serve as a bridge when there is consensus about how to amend the functioning of the world financial system. It takes 50 years for an international institution to function. There is a simple convention that the Board of the World Bank will only vote up or down what is proposed by the President of the World Bank. When the Board tried to end that convention in 2009, the following day I was locked out of the World Bank’s headquarters.  

In 1944 there were 44 countries at the Bretton Woods Conference; one of the Dutch delegates was a young lawyer named Aaron Broches, who later became the longest-serving general counsel of the World Bank. I wasn’t at the World Bank when Broches was general counsel, but I got to know him because I was interested in finding out about the history of the World Bank. Broches gave me the operation manual.  He was there when Robert McNamara came to the World Bank as the president in 1968. Broches told me that’s when the World Bank really started to deteriorate. McNamara made the place much more corrupt than it had been before that. The World Bank was established by treaty that was negotiated by the 44 countries which came to the Bretton Woods conference. By now, the Bretton Woods treaties have been signed on to by 144 additional countries. 

So, the reason people need to care about the World Bank is it is a fabulous tool. We couldn’t create it today; but we’ve inherited it, we’re standing on the shoulders of our predecessors, and it is the tool by which we are taking back the rule of law, and we’re proceeding actually further than it’s ever gone.  People complain about international law, they say it’s not enforceable, it’s just wishful thinking; no.  International law exists, and it goes from the very bottom of the system way up to the top. Because the groups that want to be free to dominate the place and not be subject to law, their game is over, finished. This is a sea-change.

L.S.: But isn’t the whole thing related to the financial crisis and the fact that those people who’ve committed crimes are not punished for their crimes – isn’t that an clear indication to the contrary? 

K.H.: Yes, but just wait until we finish doing what we need to do, because when I talk about taking back the World Bank for the rule of law, we’re talking about the beginning of a different approach. International law was developed by Hugo Grotius, a Dutch lawyer, famous for his escape in a trunk from the castle of Loevestein in 1621 where he was imprisoned by the Calvinists. Grotius believed in freedom of the seas and combined ethics, politics and law.  

He said: „It is fitting that those who have the leading place in an alliance should arrogate to themselves no privilege in relation to their own interests, but should make themselves conspicuous above the others through their careful management of the common interests.“(4) 

Now here’s where it becomes really interesting. Bond holders are entitled to accurate financial statements from the World Bank under securities laws in every single jurisdiction where the bonds are held. The World Bank has issued $135 billion in bonds denominated in the world’s currencies; anyone who holds a World Bank bond can hold the World Bank accountable. And this means that anyone inside that organization with financial information has got the right to make sure that is correctly represented in the World Bank’s financials.  If there’s an inaccuracy in the financial information, the correction must take place, and any person who reveals that inaccuracy must be protected and not retaliated against. This is now a requirement in the appropriations legislation for the US contribution to the World Bank capital increase. (5)  If you buy a World Bank bond (and I did so), you are empowered to fight for international law as an individual.

So, we now have a mechanism for requiring transparency.  Does every government want transparency?  Of course not, that’s why it has taken me fifteen years so far.  But that’s where we are now, with governments accountable to their people in a way that they weren’t before.

L.S.: You assume that a world-wide currency war is certain if the World Bank fails to adhere to the rule of law. How do you come to this conclusion? 

K.H.: It’s a very important question.  You can see definite signs of an impending currency war by the US government’s seven year delay in complying with Germany’s request to repatriate 300 tons of gold; the difficulty in obtaining gold for immediate delivery; Japan’s devaluation; and legislation in a dozen states to recognize gold and silver bullion as legal tender. I elaborated on this in a recent interview with gold and precious metals expert, Tekoa da Silva. (6) 

I have been warning for nearly ten years that US‘ failure to play by the rules at the World Bank would end in a currency war.   I come to this conclusion because one of the things the World Bank is, is it’s a knowledge bank.  You have very clever companies that have developed services that they would like to incorporate in World Bank projects. For example, I was working on a project in Ghana on a freedom of information law.  The Ghanaians hired the Sentia Group, headed by Jacek Kugler, former Chair of the Department of Politics and Policy at Claremont Graduate University. He was President of International Studies Association (2004-5) and of the Peace Science Society (1995-6). He was also editor of International Interactions.

The model developed by Jacek Kugler is 90 to 95% accurate. (7)  There are actually two models that I am relying upon.  The published version is: “The War Presidency: Options Taken and Lost.” (8)  This analysis holds that what the United States did in the Iraq war may have made some sense in the context of the regional problems, but it was absolutely suicide for the US to fly in the face of its major allies.   If the corruption in the United States continues to jeopardize the US‘ relationship with the NATO countries, (which we are now seeing in the refusal of the United States to comply with Germany’s request for repatriation of its gold), China would come way up very, very fast, but via a currency war that will force trade back to a barter system and disrupt the world economy on a scale that will make the great depression of the 1930’s and the recent world depression in 2008 pale by comparison.   

I found out in the Ghana project using the Sentia stakeholder analytic tool that the reason that the freedom of information law was not being passed was because the German government, which was financing the project , wanted a perfect freedom of information law.  It turned out that in Ghana the people who were opposed to the law had enough political power that they could prevent the law from being passed. Once the German government understood that there was no ownership in Ghana for a perfect law, the local version of the legislation passed.  

I was fired illegally as a legal officer of the World Bank trying to keep the World Bank on track in the securities markets.  I informed the US Congress that the World Bank was out of compliance on the capital markets, and was illegally fired in retaliation.  So I thought I would be reinstated immediately. I didn’t understand that the single biggest impediment was the fact that that group that I was talking about, the one that’s dominating the capital markets, is also dominating the media. I didn’t realize how concentrated the media was in the United States. 

In the last 20 years the number of owners of the media in the US has gone from 50 down to 5.  So I couldn’t get my story out. (9)  I can regale you about what happened with the National Press Club, which has been hoodwinking the American people by censoring important information.   When we are finished ending the cover-up of corruption, the media will have admitted that it was certainly newsworthy when the governors, attorneys general and chief justices of the 50 states were involved in resolving this illegality.  How can it be that the American people don’t know this now?  That is why I’m so grateful to you for bringing my story to your readers.  

L.S.: When did you come to the conclusion that a world-wide currency war is certain by using this game theory stakeholder analysis?

K.H.:  In 2004 I asked Jacek Kugler whether he would model rule of law at the World Bank. This is the second model, and is consistent with the published model, because the World Bank is a microcosm of the world economy. The input to the model requires an assessment of where the stakeholders are on rule of law at the World Bank, how powerful they are, and also how important rule of law is for them.  So for example, the president of a country may be powerful, but he’s got a lot on his plate, so that issue is not so important for him.  Kugler refers to that as „salience“.  The numbers as to how powerful the countries were is based on their shareholding in the World Bank; for instance the US has 16 percent.  But I had to estimate how important rule of law was to the World Bank’s member countries, where they stood on the issue, and so on.  However, where I guessed wrong was I didn’t understand the media.  I thought the media was part of a solution; I didn’t understand that it was very much part of the problem.  

In 2007 I warned the US Treasury Department that the model of rule of law at the World Bank was predicting that the US would lose the 66 year-old Gentlemen’s Agreement to appoint the president of the World Bank. (10)  That is what happened in 2010. (11)  The model started predicting that rule of law would prevail rather than a currency war as soon as the UK and European Parliaments published my testimony. (12)

L.S.:  But is the loss of the Gentlemen’s Agreement actually something bad?  I mean the US is just one country out of more than 188 in the World Bank?

K.H.:  Let’s look closer at Hugo Grotius‘ point: ‚If you’re at the top of the food chain in the world and you rule benevolently in everybody’s interest then this is a good thing.  But once you stop doing that, you stop acting as a trustee for the world and you start acting for the interest of a small group whose interests are different from the whole, then it’s a bad thing.  So, if the US had acted under the World Bank’s rules, and complied with the securities laws of the jurisdictions where World Bank’s bonds are held, the US could have kept its Gentlemen’s Agreement.  It’s only when the US acts illegally and against the interests of the whole of the group that the Gentlemen’s Agreement needs to end.  

L.S.: Okay, I still don’t get it, and so make it plain, please: a) why do you think a world-wide currency war is certain by using this game theory stakeholder analysis? And b) please explain why NATO is in jeopardy – and maybe more important, give our readers some reasons why it would be a bad thing if NATO would break-up? Is NATO still a defense alliance?

I also spoke to Secretary Chuck Hagel on August 6, 2008 when he represented Nebraska as a Senator in the U.S. Congress, and I told him that this stakeholder analysis was predicting that the Gentlemen’s Agreement would end if the U.S. did not stop its hegemony at the World Bank and that „playing cat and mouse with these serious governance issues at the World Bank is also a security risk to the world order.“  After Chuck Hagel became Secretary of Defense, I called up the Inspector General’s office in the Defense Department and said, „I happen to think that Secretary Hagel will be very interested to know about a problem that’s going to make him lose NATO.“  And the next weekend I got a request from LinkedIn to contact the Defense Department’s project manager for their version of the stakeholder analysis.  I am also in touch with NATO. 

NATO is in jeopardy because of tensions with Germany and Europe over the corruption emanating from the „super-entity“ that is trying to dominate the world economy.  The stakeholder analysis is predicting that this corruption can be overcome through coalitions that demand the rule of law. Informed citizens demanding an end to the corruption will turn things around.  I believe that the corruption in NATO, like the Bretton Woods institutions, can be overcome.  

As a lawyer, I believe that institutions can be retrofitted, improved, and salvaged and that when cover-ups of corruption end it is possible to close the loopholes that permitted the corruption to exist. When I say that NATO will break up, I am referring to NATO as a proxy for the transatlantic alliance.  Whether the accession of new countries to NATO has changed the character of NATO is a larger issue.  As the corruption coming from the „super entity“ of financial institutions we discussed earlier is tackled, many existing institutions will change.  Lawyers prefer incremental change, and working within an existing institutional framework.  The alternative is an approach like the French revolution.  Is that preferable? 

L.S.:  Was corruption part of the decision to get rid of Paul Wolfowitz and Robert Zoellick as heads of the World Bank?

K.H.:  Yes, of course.  The Board of Executive Directors asked Paul Wolfowitz to leave for promptly giving a 35% pay raise to his significant other who was working for the World Bank when Wolfowitz assumed the presidency.  That was just the tip of the iceberg; the corruption was systemic.(13)  

L.S.:  Well, related to Robert Zoellick I think this is not really clear to the public…

K.H.:  No, of course not, that’s because the „super-entity“ of financial institutions bought up the media.  It was because of Robert Zoellick’s corruption that the World Bank’s Committee on Governance refused a second term to Robert Zoellick, and Senator Harry Reid, Majority Leader in the US Senate, told Zoellick that he was not going to be renominated for a second term as president of the World Bank by the United States.  After Mitt Romney appointed Zoellick to head national security transition planning during the US presidential campaign, I tried without success to inform voters about the corruption problems. (13)  CBS, which broadcast the presidential debates, knew about the corruption at the World Bank because they used my information to embarrass the UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron during his interview on the David Letterman show on September 27, 2012.  After my testimony in UK Parliament about corruption at the World Bank, the UK’s Minister of Development, Andrew Mitchell, was raked over the coals in the „plebgate affair.“ (15)  But CBS refused to ask a question on international corruption during the presidential debate.  

L.S.: When did you personally became aware of improper practices at the World Bank?

K.H.:  I learned of the corruption at the World Bank gradually: think of old Polaroid pictures that develop slowly.  My understanding of the problem increased from working with other World Bank whistleblowers and seeing what happened after I disclosed corruption up the corporate ladder within the World Bank.   So, the first thing that clearly jolted me was in 1997 when the Board at the World Bank said under the Strategic Compact, ‚We’ll contribute to the World Bank budget, but we’re putting a condition that we want to see improved management‘.   I was the representative of the Staff Association on the Drysdale Committee which was looking at Human Resources Reform under the Strategic Compact.  At the end of the exercise I said, „You know, for reform in an organization, you need to have monitoring to see whether the reform has taken hold.“  When my recommendation wasn’t incorporated, I was perplexed, and wondered, „Why don’t people want to monitor reform of human resources?“

We called in Alberto Bazzan, a human resources manager from IBM.  After about a year, Alberto came to me — this was when Jim Wolfensohn was the President of the World Bank — and said „Karen, it’s not working, I don’t get to see Jim Wolfensohn very often but whenever I do, if I tell him somebody should be promoted, that person gets fired.  If I tell him that somebody should be fired, that person gets promoted.“  Alberto also said, „I don’t know how much longer I’m going to last,“ and sure enough; he got fired too.

L.S.: You also became aware of irregularities in connection with a bank in the Philippines. Please elaborate on this.

K.H.:  At the end of the East Asia financial crisis in 1999, the World Bank had a ’structural adjustment loan‘ in the Philippines.  In structural adjustment loans, the World Bank finances government reform policies rather than goods and services. In corrupt regimes these loans are controversial because the reforms are not owned by the country, and the proceeds do not end up in government treasuries. So, what happened in the privatization of Philippines National Bank (PNB) was the man who owned Philippine Airlines, which was in default to PNB, ended up buying the government shares in PNB.  The investment advisor said, ‚You know, depositors aren’t going to like that PNB is being managed by a borrower in default. This is a real problem‘.  

I went to the World Bank’s country director for the Philippines and told him what the investment advisors said; that the man who owned Philippine Airlines had broken the securities laws in the Philippines by failing to disclose his acquisition of more than 10% of PNB’s shares.  I told the World Bank’s Country Director in the Philippines to warn the government the World Bank could not disburse the rest of the structural adjustment loan.  I wrote the letter.  It said, ‚Dear Philippines Government, you’re not going to get the money, you’re not complying with the conditions‘.  I said, ‚could you please sign this letter and send it to the government‘.  Instead, I was reassigned. There was another condition in the loan requiring the Philippines‘ laws on banking supervision to be improved, and those laws were never passed after I was reassigned.   So I went to the legal department, and I said, ‚You can’t reassign lawyers who are doing their jobs.“   

I live on the same street as Larry Summers, and my kid was in the same elementary class as Larry Summers‘ kid.  When this nonsense with the human resources reform happened, I complained to Larry Summers at a PTA meeting.  I said, „The World Bank is not being managed right: when we try to correct the mismanagement, the wrong people get fired; what’s going on here?“  There was going to be a new general counsel, and a friend of mine told me that there wasa good candidate.  So, I told this to Larry Summers.  After this man came in as the World Bank’s General Counsel, I asked him, ‚Why are you reassigning me when I’m doing my job‘.  

So after I was reassigned in the Philippines, I told the Executive Director who represented the Dutch government on the Board what was going on, and the two of us had a meeting with Jim Wolfensohn. At the meeting we said, ‚This idiot who you hired as General Counsel is leading to corruption in the Philippines, you’ve got to do something about this‘. Jim Wolfensohn’s response was to put me on probation.  

I went to the decision meeting when it came time to disburse the Philippines loan and told the Vice President for the East Asia Region, „The conditions haven’t been met for disbursement.‘  And of course, that vice president knew that I was going to go back up to the Board, so he had to cancel the loan for $200 million.  There was a matching loan from Japan which was also cancelled. The depositors in the Philippines got nervous with a defaulted borrower in control of PNB, and there was a run on the bank.  The Philippines Deposit Insurance Corporation had to bail out PNB with a $500 million loan.  The President of the Philippines, Joseph Estrada, was ultimately impeached in 2001, and in 2007 an anti-corruption court in the Philippines convicted Estrada of plunder and confiscated cash and properties worth $29 million.     

When the World Bank’s Evaluation Department told the World Bank’s Board of Directors that the World Bank’s supervision performance on the structural adjustment loan for the Philippines‘ financial sector had been satisfactory, I said that the Evaluation Department was misinforming the Board.  The World Bank never ended its misinformation to the Board on the Philippines financial sector adjustment loan.  That was the kernel of the cover-up, which kept on mushrooming.  

L.S.: Why were you fired ultimately in 2007?

KH:  I was fired illegally in retaliation for informing the US Congress about the cover-up on the Philippines.  In 2006 I was a candidate for the World Bank’s General Counsel position.  During my interview, I told the Executive Search firm about the failed human resources reforms and the internal control lapses.  Executive Search firms for the general counsel position of companies with bonds on the securities markets have to correct internal control problems.  When there is an international organization whose Board consists of member countries, this problem becomes especially serious.  I informed the Treasury Department that the Sentia stakeholder analysis was predicting that the US was going to lose the Gentlemen’s Agreement.  When the Treasury Department did not respond, I informed Senators Biden, Clinton, Obama, and Lugar on the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.  

Senator Lugar backed me up with three letters to the World Bank before I was fired, and my Congressman wrote a fourth letter at Nancy Pelosi’s request after I was fired illegally in retaliation.  Senators Leahy and Bayh also joined Senator Lugar in demanding a Government Accountability Office investigation into corruption at the World Bank the year after I was fired.  When the World Bank stonewalled the GAO investigation, Congress put conditions on the US contribution to the World Bank’s capital increase requiring reform to end the effects of retaliation. (16) 

There are other World Bank whistleblowers reporting the same problems as I did.  They have stories that are equally outrageous.  You cannot run a bank as if it were your personal slush fund.  You have got to have accountability; you have got to have internal controls.  When I reported to Congress that the World Bank had deficient internal controls, I also pointed out that because of the special position of the World Bank in the world financial system, not only are you wasting tax payers‘ money, but you’re going to end up with a currency war. When the World Bank fired me and stonewalled the GAO investigation, the governance crisis at the World Bank assumed constitutional proportions.   

L.S.: In order to deal with your problems, you bought a certain kind of bond. Please tell us this story.

K.H.  The World Bank is an international organization and has immunity from lawsuits brought by its staffmembers.  But the World Bank has waived its immunities to bondholders.  In 2009 the Chairman of the World Bank’s Governance Committee, the Chairman of the Board’s Audit Committee, and the Chairman of the Board’s Ethics Committee, together with the Dean of the Board, reinstated me when I was trying to end the convention that the Board may only rubber stamp actions initiated by the World Bank’s President.  When I was locked out of the World Bank’s headquarters building, I bought a World Bank bond and sued in federal court.  

L.S.: And what has been the result?

K.H.:  The short answer is that the US is viewed as a scofflaw nation in violation of its treaty obligations and securities laws in all of the jurisdictions in which the World Bank’s bonds are traded, including state blue sky laws.  Last week an Ambassador of one of the World Bank’s members wrote, „I would also like to recognize the work you are doing in trying to bring the Bretton Woods institutions to bear on the need to meet the agreed international states in the course of their operations.“

The long answer is that the Judge in the District Court ignored the fact that I was a bond holder and dismissed my suit.  So I appealed and the stakes were increased a little bit.  The day after I blogged that the Board of the World Bank was taking over the litigation (17),  the Court of Appeals issued an unpublished decision that did not contain the reasoned opinion that was required under applicable precedent.  Then the clerk ignored my notice that the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and I were withdrawing the case after it was settled by the World Bank’s Development Committee. I reported the clerical error in the federal courts to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, to the rest of the Judicial Conference, and again more recently to the Judge who heads the Judicial Conference Executive Committee.  I also reported to the National Governors Association, the National Association of Attorneys General, and the Conference of Chief Justices of the state Supreme Courts that the federal courts were ignoring 187 Ministers of Finance.  

On April 19, 2013 the Development Committee issued me a pass to attend the Spring meetings of the Bretton Woods institutions.  On April 20, 2013 the U.S. Secret Service barred me from attending the rest of the meetings.  On April 21, 2013, in a letter that was cleared by the World Bank’s shareholders, I informed Julia Pierson, Director of the Secret Service, that the Secret Service had acted illegally.  Later that day the Secret Service issued me an invalid barring notice, which had been signed by a World Bank official who exceeded his authority.   

L.S.: It’s almost unnecessary to ask you this, but anyway: Did you get any protection as a whistleblower? And what are your thoughts in general how whistleblowers are treated these days in the US? 

K.H.:  That’s a wonderful question.  I started out with a law firm to help me with my case.  At one point that firm gave me some documents which were very helpful, including a report from the Joint Economic Committee of the US Congress to the effect that World Bank governance is very bad and its accounting is terrible. (19)  A couple of years ago, I went back to that firm to thank them for having given me that very important document. And the next thing I knew, that firm referred an assignment to me in the Philippines. Well, I have gotten some very powerful people in the Philippines rather angry. I thought it was kind of dangerous to go to the Philippines, so I said, „I’d be very happy to take that assignment, but I think I’m going to sub-contract the work in the Philippines.“  The work dried up when I wasn’t going to the Philippines anymore. 

I have filed many complaints with local, state and federal law enforcement officials about illegal acts and not a single complaint has been satisfactorily resolved. It is the job of each and every citizen in a democracy to inform themselves what is happening to their whistleblowers and to protect them. The accountability feedback loop has been largely impaired by the „super-entity“ of financial institutions which bought up the media in the U.S. 

L.S.: There was actually an investigation to address the corruption at the World Bank, which was headed by former Federal Reserve chairman Paul A. Volcker. What do you think about the results of this investigation?

K.H.:  After studying Development Economics at the University of Amsterdam, I have some excellent contacts.  In 2005 the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked for an investigation of the Audit Committee into my complaints about the lapses on the Philippines financial sector structural adjustment loan.(20)  The Chair of the Audit Committee at the time, Pierre Duquesne, asked instead for an investigation into the Institutional Integrity Department. The Volcker Panel has been thoroughly discredited.  (19)

L.S.: Have there been other responses, for example in the UK?

K.H.:  Yes. I met with the UK’s Serious Fraud Office on September 28, 2010, and informed them that KPMG did not follow Generally Accepted Auditing Standards. The Serious Fraud Office called the SEC on October 10, 2010, but the SEC only stonewalled. Two Committees of the UK Parliament published my testimony to this effect.  (See note 11) After the SEC refused to respond to the Serious Fraud Office, that was when a UK lawyer advised me, ‚It’s time, Karen, to go to the credit rating agencies.‘ All of these problems are going to drive down the US credit rating, there’s no question about it.  That is why the Attorney General, Eric Holder, is suing the credit rating agencies. Thirteen other countries have written to me about the illegality I have been reporting to them.

Now, I’ve made these points to the state attorneys general, to the state governors and to the Chief Justices of state Supreme Courts.   When there are these compliance issues, the states are also responsible for protecting the bond holders under blue sky laws.  I finally got a letter from Maryland’s governor, Martin O’Malley, requesting me to have my Senators in US Congress solve this problem. So I went to Senators Mikulski and Cardin, and they didn’t solve the problem.  I went to Senate Legal Counsel and to the House General Counsel, and informed them that there was an impasse between the state regulators and the SEC.  

Then I went to Secretary Hagel and said, „First of all we’re landing in a currency war and second of all, we have a serious disconnect between the states and the federal government.  How is this going to be resolved, martial law?  The Judicial Conference is confronting a situation where 188 Ministers of Finance have reinstated me, have granted me a security pass, and the President of the World Bank and Secret Service prevent me from entering the building;  the clerk of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has dismissed my case in error; the Judicial Conference refuses to correct the clerical error, and the citizens with a few exceptions remain in the dark.  What you have is a country which is seriously, seriously out of compliance.  So, when you say the World Bank is out of compliance; no, it’s the US government.  It’s all of the different pillars of government.  It’s the federal government, it’s the judiciary.  The Congress isn’t doing such a great job either; they passed an appropriations law with conditionality and failed to require GAO to carry out an audit into corruption that they commissioned.

L.S.: Yes.  You also assume the repatriation of German gold that was announced by the Deutsche Bundesbank in January of this year has something to do with the problems at the World Bank. Why so?

K.H.:  That’s a very good question.  The Secretary of the Treasury and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve together with the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission sit on the National Advisory Council on International Monetary and Financial Policies, and these are the entities that have accepted KPMG’s unqualified audit of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development when the bondholders can have no confidence in the accuracy of the World Bank’s financial statements because of the corruption that I and other World Bank whistleblowers have reported. 

Germany asked to repatriate 300 tons of gold three months after the New York Federal Reserve refused Germany´s request for a physical inspection of vaults in which Germany´s gold was stored.    Instead, the US Treasury offered a paper audit.(21)  The Inspector Generals of both the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve have not inspired any confidence in my case, to put it bluntly.  A dozen states are also moving to recognize gold as legal tender,(22) and Texas is permitting its pensions to invest in gold now.(23)

It’s part and parcel of this corrupt illegality; this illegality is creating such turmoil that people have concerns about the soundness of the US dollar as a currency.  Now, I’ve seen the letters that you’ve written and about why Germany needs its gold.  I think probably the best answer is that in a situation that I’ve just outlined where you have illegality from top to bottom, you don’t want your gold anywhere else because you don’t know what’s going to happen to it.  I can’t say for sure when the decision of your audit committee was made that required the audit.

L.S.:  Yes.

K.H.:  The strength of my case is that I have documented the illegality from the very bottom of the financial system to the very top. The only reason this matter is not resolved is because of this control of the media which is jeopardizing democracy in the United States. I’ve documented a serious case of what is called state capture. Is it going to be resolved? I do know that all of these World Bank whistleblowers have their own contacts with their governments.  Although the credit rating agencies have had a front row view, most American citizens haven’t, with the exception of a group called the National Taxpayers Union, which has a blog about me. (25)  

L.S.: What do you think about the fact that the BRICS nations are creating their own development bank to rival the World Bank and the IMF?

K.H.:  I congratulate them, and I’m very glad that they did this.  

L.S.:  Yes, but do you think that this creation of a new development bank by the BRICS nations is a result of this corruption at the World Bank?

K.H.:  Absolutely.  

L.S.: And since we also raised the issue of gold, is it any surprise to you that these BRICS nations are buying gold, for example, Russia and China, whereas the western Central Banks and the IMF have a very different approach to gold?

K.H.:  Professor Antal Fekete has written about the significance of the current very high demand for immediate delivery of gold.(24) It is becoming clear that the corruption in the international financial system is risking a situation in which gold supply will cease as persons who hold gold refuse to relinquish it for paper money, referred to as „permanent backwardation.“ We have got to prevent this from happening. It’s the „super entity“ of financial institutions that’s unsettling everything; they have got to play by the rules. They can’t have a free pass to corrupt the world. No; that’s ended, that’s over. The fact that most people don’t know about them or what they do or what the BIS is, that has to end.  Everybody has to know, and there has to be an orderly transition to a world financial system that makes some sense. This current situation where they control the press makes no sense whatsoever, and it’s got to end. 

L.S.:  Apropos the BIS; is it also involved?  And you’ve said most people don’t know what the BIS is, so what is the BIS?

K.H.:  The answer is yes, the BIS is involved. The BIS, Bank for International Settlements, is the consortium of central bankers.  The central bankers are private, they’re not government entities. Anyway, I wrote the BIS to ask them what on earth is going on?  I never heard back from them, which is kind of curious.

L.S.: Final question.  How would you solve the problems we were talking about if the choice was yours?

K.H.:  I’ve been thinking a lot about the answer to that question.  I think there are two very easy answers.  The first is that whistleblowers have to be made whole, as required by US Congress for the US contribution to the World Bank capital increase. The second is that the democratic deficit in the international financial system where people don’t know what the BIS is has to end. People don’t know it’s their Ministers of Finance that are dealing with these issues and what their Ministers of Finance are up to.  People have to become aware of this because it’s dangerous to have this democratic deficit.  So that’s what I would change, I would change the flow of information.  

L.S.: Yes, but how would you change the flow of information?

K.H.:  Well, that’s a serious, serious question.  There has to be awareness that people are getting their information filtered, and I think once they’re aware of it, this is going to change.  I think a lot of the solution is going to come from the internet.  That’s why there are so many efforts now to limit the Internet.  I went to a conference on this, and it was no surprise to me that the person who was running this conference didn’t think it was suitable for me to address the conference.  You know, need I say more.  There is censorship, and the censorship has to stop.

One of the very positive developments is that people expect that soon there will be very wide access to the internet by all of the people on this planet.  So we have to ensure that the Internet remains functional, and that we pay serious attention to what happened with the death of Aaron Swartz; this is no accident.

L.S.: Yes, yes.  But isn’t also the internet a wonderful surveillance instrument for intelligence agencies?

K. H.:  Yes.  Recently I’ve gotten to know a US whistleblower who knows a great deal about domestic surveillance: Mark Novitsky.  People have got to become aware about what all is going on, and that should help us make a begin in solving this extremely serious and dangerous problem.

L.S.:  Thank you very much for taking your time, Dr. Hudes!

K. H.: Thank you very much for having me!

FEDERAL RESERVE RELEASES NAMES

Jerome Powell 16th chair of the Federal Reserve

“Federal Reserve Bank of New York has posted the names of the banks that grabbed billions under the Fed’s emergency repo loans.

Repo loan operations that commenced on September 17, 2019 – months before there was a COVID-19 crisis anywhere in the world.

The emergency repo loans were made via Open Market operations at the New York Fed.

The fact that so many huge loans ended up going to foreign banks, as well as Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Securities, suggests that this was a derivatives counterparty problem, potentially triggered by Deutsche Bank’s crisis at the time.

Deutsche Bank is a major derivatives counterparty to Wall Street mega banks. It was having serious problems throughout 2019. Its attempt to merge with Commerzbank fell through in April 2019. Its share price had lost 90 percent of its value over the prior dozen years and was trading close to an historic low in September 2019.

On September 27, Deutsche Bank took a $3 billion 14-day term loan and rolled over $6 billion in a 3-day loan.

The current data for the last 14 days of September 2019 shows that Goldman Sachs and Nomura Securities International (part of a Japanese financial firm) borrowed huge sums under the Fed’s 14-day term repo loans. Goldman Sachs had $29.6 billion in 14-day term repo loans outstanding by September 27, then took an additional $5 billion one-day repo loan on September 30. Nomura, by September 27, had $30 billion outstanding in 14-day term loans.

On September 27, JPMorgan Securities had a total of $20 billion in 14-day term repo loans outstanding. On September 30, JPMorgan Securities took an additional $8 billion one day repo loan.

On the first day of the emergency repo loan operations on September 17, the New York Fed provided a total of $53.15 billion in one-day repo loans. JPMorgan Securities was the largest borrower at $7.6 billion or 14 percent of the total. JPMorgan Chase, the parent organization, owns the largest depository bank in the United States. At that point in time, JPMorgan Chase held $1.6 trillion in deposits. Why would it need to borrow $7.6 billion from the New York Fed on the very first day the emergency repo loan operations opened?

It’s long past the time for the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee to get to the bottom of what the financial panic that started on September 17, 2019 was all about.”

Larry Fink gives the cue, “Go Direct”!

Larry Fink CEO of BlackRock

LARRY FINK UNVEILED

“BlackRock is the world’s largest asset management company with over $9 trillion in assets, is one of the top two shareholders of over 1,600 American firms, was involved in the clean up of the 2008 financial meltdown, pulled off the biggest scandal in history with the Federal Reserve last year, and is changing the way banks and financial institutions monitor your money while creating a new climate scoring system as another way to control your funds. Their finger isn’t just on the pulse, it’s on the lever.

BlackRock was founded by Laurence (Larry) Fink in 1988 under the corporate umbrella of The Blackstone group, later split from Blackstone in 1994, and went public in 1999. If Larry Fink isn’t on your radar, you better start paying attention. Familiarize yourself with what BlackRock is behind, what they’ve already done to negatively impact you and our economy, and what’s coming down the pike so you can stay ahead of it. Here is a very important suggested read:

Going Direct Reset Summary

https://lnkd.in/g4eAVAya

Larry Fink implemented the “Going Direct Reset” in March 2020 with the Federal Reserve, when the Fed created new reserves in the wholesale monetary circuit to effect the parallel creation of new bank money in the retail circuit, to the tune of $3.5 trillion.

The Fed appointed BlackRock to assist them in executing the $3.5 trillion plan – the plan that was devised by BlackRock in August 2019, four months before the virus was announced to have hit the U.S. When reviewing the Going Direct Reset timeline alongside the so-called pandemic, it’s a real eye-opener.”

Impact Economy – Pay For Success Finance

Lifelong Anytime, Anywhere Learning

Pay for Success Finance Preys Upon The Poor

Pay for Success is one of the biggest things we’re up against, and something few people are talking about, is social impact investing and pay for success finance. Within the hollowed out shell of the welfare state, which admittedly was always inadequate and used for purposes of racialized social control, global finance has built a new machine that will use predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, and wearable and screen-based technologies to monitor the global poor and profit from their misery.

This effort is being carried out in partnership with the non-profit sector, higher education, think tanks, and global foundations with the intention of stabilizing late-stage capitalism with technocratic “evidence-based” solutions.

Outcomes-based contracts are this machine’s operating system. Contracts employ pay-for-performance agreements that reimburse service providers IF they produce specified success metrics. These metrics are narrowly defined and chosen for their ability to be gamed. Contrived solutions offer up fake “success” to enrich investors at the expense of vulnerable populations. Think standardized test scores as success metrics for education or fit-bit step counts for preventative health.

This machine requires a steady supply of people labeled deficient by those in power. Like batteries in the Matrix, the poor are meant to be the fuel. The machine does not care for their actual wellbeing; its sole purpose is to maximize profit. In that it is similar to the capitalist Western medical model where Big Pharma opts for chronic disease management over research leading to cures. Pay for success will not empower the poor, but instead manage them and harvest their data, indefinitely.

The infrastructure for this system was put in place in the years leading up to the financial crisis of 2008. After toxic mortgages imploded, financiers needed another way to keep global capital circulating. It had to be even bigger than real estate debt, since global wealth continues to become more and more concentrated. The next BIG target would be financialized public benefit systems. Through financialization, resources are siphoned from the real economy into the financial sector where demands for short-term profit lead to instability, overwhelming debt, income inequality, and wage stagnation.

The “Pay for Success” Finance Model Works As Follows:

World Bank / Public Health Finance

“The “pay for success” finance model works as follows:

  1. Identify a social problem. In this case the possibility of a pandemic.
  2. Get an academic institution or think tank to cost out the problem as a negative externality. Remember, the more expensive the problem, the bigger the potential profit from preemptively “fixing” it.
  3. Establish an equation that fixes a rate of return for “evidence-based” “solutions.”
  4. Select the type of data, the parameters, that determine “success” for the deal.
  5. Set up infrastructure to track the data and provide “evidence” of success.
  6. Identify partners – service provider, investors, and project oversight.
  7. Deliver the services and collect the data.
  8. After a third party determines if success metrics were met, performance payments are issued to investors (or not).”

UNITED NATIONS

Data-driven “pay for success” deals are structured around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). “Health” is goal number three. The World Bank has played a role in creating new investment products aligned to the UN SDGs. You can read more about the UN SDG financial apparatus here.

“Pay for success” finance is a performance-based contracting system that has been applied to a wide range of social issues ranging from pre-k, mental health and elder-care services to workforce training and supportive housing. It is clear to me that “pandemic preparedness” is being fitted out for pay for success profit-taking, too.

See Alison McDowell’s VIDEO explaining what a Social Impact Bond is in 2 minutes: https://lnkd.in/gq2bz9d

Once you peek under the hood, you realize what a grotesque business social impact investing actually is. These tools are built on 400 years of racial capitalism. It is the Doctrine of Discovery with Blockchain replacing double-entry bookkeeping and smart phones and digital identity systems replacing shackles. It is a system that arose in tandem with cloud-based computing, broadband, 5G and the Internet of Things. These advancements are inextricably inked to the interests of the US military and intelligence community, which is why we must recognize that as much as we have come to rely on our devices, true liberation will never come through digital channels. It can’t; our opponents run the cloud.” – Alison McDowell at Wrench in the Gears
