Legal scholar Jennifer Taub on Trump as a symptom of America’s massive inequality | Salon.com

It means that the roads and bridges are not safe. It means that kids do not have access to preschool. Because the rich are not paying the taxes they owe and otherwise hiding income, it means that they are a de facto criminal class. The 1 percent are literally becoming wealthier and more powerful from criminal behavior. They use their influence to change the laws so that they pay fewer taxes, and this includes underfunding the IRS.

The Prosecutors Cometh | The Smirking Chimp

Were I Trump’s Lawyer For The Day, I’d advise him to purchase a first-class ticket to Botswana or Brunei, neither of which has an extradition treaty with the United States. Because things are getting pretty ugly for him in New York.

Fox News, Fox hosts, Giuliani and Powell named in $US2.7 billion libel suit by Smartmatic voting company

Fox News host Judge Jeanine Perro speaking in Sydney in 2019.

The complaint also alleges that Fox hosts Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro also directly benefited from their involvement in the conspiracy. The lawsuit alleges that Fox went along with the “well-orchestrated dance” due to pressure from newcomer outlets such as Newsmax and One America News, which were stealing away conservative, pro-Trump viewers. Fox News Media, in a statement on behalf of the network and its hosts, rejected the accusations. It said it is proud of its election coverage and would defend itself against the “meritless” lawsuit in court. Fox “is committed to providing the full context of every story with in-depth reporting and clear opinion,” the company said in a written statement. Giuliani and Powell did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Trump Team Fails to Cite Mail-in Election Fraud Cases in Court

PHILADELPHIA, PA - JUNE 02: Voters cast ballots in  primary elections on June 2, 2020 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Voters in seven states are casting ballots in House Primaries today amid a coronavirus outbreak that has killed more than 103,000 people in the U.S. and the harshest downturn for American workers in history. In Philadelphia voters are also facing more barriers including travel and public transportation disruptions, road closures, evacuations of buildings and curfews due to civil disturbances over the past week following protests.

President Donald Trump’s campaign, ordered by a federal court judge in Pennsylvania to back up its claims of fraud in the state’s vote-by-mail system, has documented only a handful of cases of election fraud in recent years — none of which involved mail-in ballots. The revelation, which came in the form of a partially redacted 524-page document produced by the Trump campaign last week, undermines the claim by Trump team operatives that mail-in ballot fraud is a grave risk to Pennsylvania voters.

Australians lost nearly half a billion dollars to scammers in 2018, says ACCC – Business – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Animation of a laptop screen showing the words 'Fraud Alert'.

Were Banks included in these figures along with other corporate bodies?

However even forget that, the greatest scammers that targeted Australia were actually Captain Cook from the very first moment of discovery and it continued from then until invasion day and thereafter till now. Conservatives want all of this history written out of the Australian narrative? Far too inclusive for them it seems and it might lead to TREATY and RECOGNITION. We can’t have that!! Why is NZ so different to us when it comes to an honest and shared history of their nation? Why is it that it threatens Conservatives in the IPA, LNP and News Corp so much? Their paid for News Corp voice simply calls shared historical fact as “fake”  but not so the ABC that opens these stories to be shared to us all? (ODT)

When Corporations go to the wall it’s the the “free market” when the economy is rocked it’s the the “free market”. When the economy is on the rise it’s Liberal” good management,” When unemployment is rising it’s the “free market” When welfare is cut it’s Liberal “good management”. Someone seems not to have a clue when 12,000 investors are seperatedfrom their money. (ODT)

Trump Reportedly Duped Investors and Profited Handsomely for Years

The Trumps were typically way more than mere licensors or bystanders in their often-troubled deals. They were deeply involved in these projects. They helped mislead investors and buyers — and they profited handsomely from it.

Big banks’ fraud detection provider linked to man with criminal past

Our banks protect us with experts in fraud or should that be amateurs? (ODT)

The director of a business that provides fraud detection services to Australia’s major banks runs at least two other companies with a man who has been jailed for financial crimes.

Sydney IT entrepreneur Devendra Gupta is the founder of Paradigm.One, a telecommunications software company that boasts the Commonwealth Bank, Westpac and NAB, as well as major telcos Optus, Telstra and Vodafone, among its clients.

Paradigm.One’s fraud detection systems are designed to stop thieves from stealing banking customers’ details during scenarios where people transfer their mobile numbers to a different phone carrier or service.

Devendra Gupta is also the director of property investment firm Starin and the Australia India Film Fund, organisations with which he shares office with businessman Yateender Gupta, who was in 1999 sentenced to two years behind bars for white-collar fraud. The Australian India Film Fund financed cricketer Brett Lee’s Bollywood film debut, Unindian.

The Latest Act in Israel’s Iran Nuclear Disinformation Campaign | The Smirking Chimp

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim in his theatrical 20-minute presentationof an Israeli physical seizure of Iran’s “atomic archive” in Tehran would certainly have been the “great intelligence achievement” he boasted if it had actually happened. But the claim does not hold up under careful scrutiny, and his assertion that Israel now possesses a vast documentary record of a covert Iranian nuclear weapons program is certainly fraudulent.

Netanyahu’s slide show revealed more than just his over-the-top style of persuasion on the subject of Iran. It provided further evidence that the claims that had successfully swayed the U.S. and Israeli allies to join in punishing Iran for having had a nuclear weapons program were based on fabricated documents that originated in the state that had the strongest motive to make that case – Israel.
