World media is now alight with reports surrounding the largest data leak in the history of journalism known as the Panama Papers. The 2.6 terabytes worth of information has apparently revealed dirty deals, money laundering operations, and tax avoidance schemes by some of the world’s most powerful people including celebrities, athletes, world leaders, politicians, and their relatives. In addition, over 200,000 companies, trusts, and foundations are mentioned and exposed in the leak coming from Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian “law firm” that contains files with information such as “holdings of drug dealers, Mafia members, corrupt politicians and tax evaders – and wrongdoing galore.”
Mossack Fonseca is considered one of the world’s biggest creators of “shell companies,” corporate formations that can be used to hide the true owners of various assets. The data that was released by Mossack Fonseca includes contracts, emails, bank records, property deeds, passport copies and a host of other collections of sensitive information going as far back as 1977 to as recent as December, 2015.
As media outlet Zero Hedge describes the leak, “It allows a never-before-seen view inside the offshore world — providing a day-to-day, decade-by-decade look at how dark money flows through the global financial system, breeding crime and stripping national treasuries of tax revenues.”
As Sueddeutsche Zeitung, the outlet that received the leaks, summarized the new revelations:
Over a year ago, an anonymous source contacted the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) and submitted encrypted internal documents from Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian law firm that sells anonymous offshore companies around the world. These shell firms enable their owners to cover up their business dealings, no matter how shady. In the months that followed, the number of documents continued to grow far beyond the original leak. Ultimately, SZ acquired about 2.6 terabytes of data, making the leak the biggest that journalists had ever worked with. The source wanted neither financial compensation nor anything else in return, apart from a few security measures. The data provides rare insights into a world that can only exist in the shadows. It proves how a global industry led by major banks, legal firms, and asset management companies secretly manages the estates of the world’s rich and famous: from politicians, Fifa officials, fraudsters and drug smugglers, to celebrities and professional athletes.
Zero Hedge also described a number of high-profile revelations coming from the leaks. The website writes:
Mossack Fonseca’s fingers are in Africa’s diamond trade, the international art market and other businesses that thrive on secrecy. The firm has serviced enough Middle East royalty to fill a palace. It’s helped two kings, Mohammed VI of Morocco and King Salman of Saudi Arabia, take to the sea on luxury yachts.
In Iceland, the leaked files show how Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson and his wife secretly owned an offshore firm that held millions of dollars in Icelandic bank bonds during that country’s financial crisis. In the video clip below, PM Gunnlaugsson walks out of an interview with Swedish television company SVT. Gunnlaugsson is asked about a company called Wintris, which he says has been fully declared to the Icelandic tax authority. Gunnlaugsson says he is not prepared to answer such questions and decides to discontinue the interview, saying: ‘What are you trying to make up here? This is totally inappropriate’
The ICIJ records show Sergey Roldugin, a long-time friend of Vladimir Putin, as a behind-the-scenes player in a clandestine network operated by Putin associates that has shuffled at least $2 billion through banks and offshore companies, German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung and other media partners has found. In the documents, Roldugin is listed as the owner of offshore companies that have obtained payments from other companies worth tens of millions of dollars.
The files include a convicted money launderer who claimed he’d arranged a $50,000 illegal campaign contribution used to pay the Watergate burglars, 29 billionaires featured in Forbes Magazine’s list of the world’s 500 richest people and movie star Jackie Chan, who has at least six companies managed through the law firm. The files contain new details about major scandals ranging from England’s most infamous gold heist to the bribery allegations convulsing FIFA, the body that rules international soccer.
In the “Operation Car Wash” case in Brazil, prosecutors allege that Mossack Fonseca employees destroyed and hid documents to mask the law firm’s involvement in money laundering. A police document says that, in one instance, an employee of the firm’s Brazil branch sent an email instructing co-workers to hide records involving a client who may have been the target of a police investigation: “Do not leave anything. I will save them in my car or at my house.”
In Nevada, the leaked files show, Mossack Fonseca employees worked in late 2014 to obscure the links between the law firm’s Las Vegas branch and its headquarters in Panama in anticipation of a U.S. court order requiring it to turn over information on 123 companies incorporated by the law firm. Argentine prosecutors had linked those Nevada-based companies to a corruption scandal involving an associate of former presidents Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
Today, Mossack Fonseca is considered one of the world’s five biggest wholesalers of offshore secrecy. It has more than more than 500 employees and collaborators in more than 40 offices around the world, including three in Switzerland and eight in China, and in 2013 had billings of more than $42 million.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists also took part in the “investigation” of the leaked data and revealed a summary of its findings. ICIJ suggests the leaks expose:
Offshore companies linked to the family of China’s top leader, Xi Jinping, as well as Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who has
positioned himself as a reformer in a country shaken by corruption scandals
29 billionaires featured in Forbes Magazine’s list of the world’s 500 richest people
Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson and his wife secretly owned an offshore firm that held millions of dollars in Icelandic bank bonds during the country’s financial crisis
Associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin secretly shuffled as much as $2 billion through banks and shadow companies
New details of offshore dealings by the late father of British Prime Minister David Cameron, a leader in the push for tax-haven reform
Offshore companies controlled by the Prime Minister of Pakistan, the King of Saudi Arabia and the children of the President of Azerbaijan
33 people and companies blacklisted by the US Government because of evidence that they have done business with Mexican drug lords, terrorist organisations like Hezbollah or rogue nations like North Korea
Customers including Ponzi schemers, drug kingpins, tax evaders and at least one jailed sex offender
Movie star Jackie Chan, who had at least six companies managed through the law firm
The Targets of the Release
Out of all this data, however, there are several curious aspects that no mainstream media outlet has yet to adequately explain – the apparent absence of any relevant American or Israeli names as well as any high-profile and realistically relevant European names, particularly those of the active NATO countries.
In fact, despite the fact that the Russians, Syrians, Chinese, and Icelandics have been revealed for the offshore dealers that they are – we are being led to believe that the oligarchs in the United States, England, Israel, and Germany are squeaky clean.
Three points must be made in this regard.
First, many of the targets of the Panama Papers leaks are being “exposed” only by means of guilt by association. For instance, a full on public relations assault has been launched against Russian President Vladmir Putin, suggesting that Putin himself is responsible for using offshore accounts for personal gain. However, Putin’s guilt is simply being associated with an individual who is holding money in offshore accounts. Putin himself has not been revealed as one of the individuals laundering money.
The Guardian video entitled “How To Hide A Billion Dollars: The Panama Papers,” is perhaps one of the most obvious examples of how “guilt by association” is used to implicate Putin himself in offshore accounts and tax evasion. Yet there is no evidence of Putin himself doing anything of the sort, only evidence of a “close friend” of Putin who has maintained offshore accounts. The reports out of Western mainstream media even go so far as to associate Putin with the accounts because the leaks revealed that his “childhood friends” were also engaged in offshore accounting.
Similarly, a character assassination attempt has been launched against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad despite no evidence that Assad has been maintaining offshore accounts. The only evidence provided that comes anywhere close to pointing at Assad is that which exposes his cousins who are maintaining the accounts.
Likewise, reports are pointing toward Chinese President Xi Jinping as a tax evader, despite the fact that only his brother-in-law was fingered in the leak.
Other heads of state targeted by the leaks (but not necessarily directly point to) are former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (overthrown by the Western-backed Arab Spring), Petro Poroshenko (President of Ukraine), and the current Prime Minister of Iceland. Palestinian leaders or, rather, a “confidant” to the Palestinian Authority President were also mentioned.
3 Things You Need to Save $2600 In Taxes This Year (Ad)
While there are many more individuals and countries listed in the leaks, the lists themselves are a curious representation of countries and world leaders whom the United States and the NATO powers view as targets and/or enemies. Putin, Assad, Mubarak, and Orban as well as their host countries of Hungary, Venezuela, Russia, Syria, Palestine, and China are all listed as violators of tax evasion, money laundering, and more but without sufficient evidence to prove most of the claims made against them.
The second point that must be made is the curious lack of high-profile American names as well as the lack of NATO leaders, leaders of major European countries, and Israelis. Being the most massive leak in journalistic history, to be sure, citizens of one of the largest economies on the face of the earth would turn up in an investigation of offshore accounts. Certainly, Western European oligarchs are as corrupt as any other nationality of oligarch. After all, Western European oligarchs often have a much higher tax rate (at least publicly) so it would stand to reason that they would be taking part in offshore accounting as much if not more than any other oligarch. Likewise, with the Israelis. Are we truly to believe that no Israelis are using offshore accounts?
Thus, it is curious indeed that such massive leaks seem directed at target nations and target individuals of the Anglo-American/NATO powers with little or no mention of nations or individuals belonging to the Anglo-American/NATO powers themselves.
For these reasons, the Panama Papers release has all the hallmarks of what might be considered a “limited hangout” operation. In other words, these leaks may very well be nothing more than an Anglo-American attack on geopolitical rivals and an exercise in a massive propaganda blitz against target nations and individuals.
Lastly, while some revelations do contain NATO allies like the Ukrainian President, the Saudis, United Arab Emirates, and Qataris, one must keep in mind the necessity of the “hangout” aspect of the “limited hangout,” i.e., the necessity to reveal something negative about the institution or nations actually releasing the “leaks” in order to provide authenticity of the documents and claims made therein but, at the same time, never revealing anything that would actually be practically damaging to the entity that originally provided the leak. A limited hangout is thus a type of data leak false flag, requiring a certain amount of incriminating data aimed back at the perpetrator so as to provide credibility but never enough to bring the heat back to the one who created and committed the leak to begin with.
There is also the possibility that the leaks implicating individuals and countries allied with the NATO powers are centered around a desire to weaken these allies who may have either outlived their usefulness or are, for whatever reason, refusing to comply fully with the NATO agenda.
Who Supports The Leaks?
With a leak of this magnitude containing such massive amounts of information, particularly when signs point to the possibility of the leak having been the product of a “limited hangout” operation, it is important to investigate those who produced, investigated, and reported the leak to begin with.
In addition to over 100 mainstream news organizations (themselves a questionable lot), an investigation into the leaks was undertaken by the International Consortium Of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). In regards to the Panama Papers, this may be all one really needs to know to understand the nature and purpose of the leak.
The ICIJ is a non-profit organization that describes itself by stating that it is a“global network of more than 190 investigative journalists in more than 65 countries who collaborate on in-depth investigative stories.”
Yet the ICIJ is anything but independent. One need only take a look at the ICIJ’s sponsors and “funding supporters” to see a list of a number of powerful Foundations and color revolution organizations that have worked closely with the U.S. State Department in the past (and continue to do so today) for the purposes of overthrowing and destabilizing foreign governments for the geopolitical benefits of the United States government and those of the NATO bloc.
The ICIJ website itself lists the following organizations as “funding supporters:”
Recent ICIJ funders include: Adessium Foundation, Open Society Foundations, The Sigrid Rausing Trust, the Fritt Ord Foundation, the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, The Ford Foundation, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Pew Charitable Trusts and Waterloo Foundation.
Even more telling, at the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) website, the Panama Papers disclosure site, the OCCRP proudly displays “Who Supports Our Work” at the bottom of the page. Among the organizations supporting OCCRP are George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, a color revolution apparatus that works closely with the U.S. State Department as well as USAID, a wholly functioning arm of the U.S. State Department that has been involved in color revolutions across the world.
Thus, we have at least one direct connection between the Panama Papers leak and the U.S. State Department which is as strong as virtually any link made between the individuals exposed in the leaks and Putin or Assad. With this in mind, it is much easier to see what the true purpose of the leaks might be.
While many may have, at first, believed the Panama Papers leaks to be an instance of guerrilla hacking or some other form of grassroots activism against world oligarchs, all indications are that they are nothing more than an exercise in mass propaganda designed to paint certain “enemies” of the Western powers as corrupt and greedy, further demonizing them in the Western press and undermining their credibility and legitimacy in their own countries.
While this type of corruption may indeed be rampant in the overwhelming majority of cases across the world (including the United States, Israel, and the West), the Panama Papers appear to be nothing more than other propaganda assault conducted by the U.S. State Department and its host of interconnected color revolution agencies like the Ford Foundation, OSI, and USAID. Before activists rejoice, they should take a deeper look into the leaks and the source that produced them.

Isn’t this just more apex globalist N-dimensional chess to hurry along the MCAA Global earnings and taxes information network that intends to collect and share detailed information on every person on the planet? Currently, 80 nations have agreed to collaborate in the MCAA program – with Panama being a glaring exception. Maybe this is the push to get a straggler in and reinforce a global meme of public outrage over the super wealthy using offshore tax shelters to manufacture consent for a global tax. That’s been the meme behind Pelosi’s 2009 global transaction tax (floated first by former UK PM and Trilateralist Gordon Brown), the “solution” coming out of a Moyers and Krugman televised interview, Bernie’s Wall Street Tax, etc.
True! True! True! However, If your hands are clean, THEY cannot touch you. Nor can the fire singe not even a single hair upon your head! Get out of Her, my people. Touch nothing unclean, nor anything that belongs to them. Good advice from the Good Book. Another quote: Do not be in fear of them (Massive Worldwide Corruption); for there is nothing covered over that will not become uncovered, and secret that will not become known. (Matthew Ch10 vs 26)
So now we have at least three to four articles of the same thing at this website. We are stuck in endlessly TALKING about our glaring problem of corruption to the point of complete INACTION.
Here’s my response to that at another authors article of the same thing.
The corruption in our systems have grown to the point the ONLY thing
that should be happening anymore is incarceration of those involved.
All of the articles detailing every nuance of the criminality is just repeating what most already know.
If we do not act, our behavior is just as insane as a group of people
standing around watching a house burn and reporting in great detail how
it will consume it. YES, THAT IS OBVIOUS. We have long passed the point
of analysis and need to employ some action or it is all for nothing.
The continued articles and analysis are preventing any real action to actually counter what is being done.
Let’s discuss a REAL plan of arresting white collar criminals, with the evidence and people to convict.
Just another One World Government effort to destabilize the world (except those in the inner circle of course). Then their front men in the UN sweeps in to fix everything. When will we learn??? The fact that most crooks are found in the USA and not one was outed told me everything I needed to know. If it’s really a ‘leak’ show us the darned list already!
Offshore business is an US/UK invention !
There are hunderds of such offdhore ilslands, countries, banks… for rich people who do not pay taxes. Also, they enjoy diplomatic immunity!
Obligation to law is only valuable for slaves who do not have immunity and pay taxes to keep the satanic system alive
No, the richest and most stable nations in Europe (and the world) are all social democracies. They even have 8 of the 10 freest economies in the world according to the Heritage Index of Free economies. The nations in trouble are the Southern /European nations which have been destroyed by conservative leaders in cahoots with bankers.
Your post is just an obsolete cliche. Our more socialistic neighbor Canada has free (at point of use) education and healthcare, yet the average Canadian is richer than the average American. The richest nations on earth are social democracies, and they also have the highest civil rights and political liberty ratings.
The old lies are dying out…..of all the viable candidates for President, only social democrat Bernie Sanders isusted to be honest and liked.
The times, they are a changin’
If you can’t lend a hand,
get out of the way,
your old cliches are like litter
the words of a bullshitter
The times, they are a changin (apologies to Bob Dylan)
Funny that your liberal ceo goes to liberal Germany and no one can wave at him/it. Oh but I thought liberals were saviors of the world. Lack fortitude much??
Prejudice: preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.
I am not a liberal. What liberal ceo? Hitler blamed liberals (social democrats) for all the evil in the world. That is the standard fascist scapegoat.
You are incoherent…..all I can do is wonder.
If you can’t lend a hand, get out of the way.
My 1st reply was “removed” and warranted, I believe.
Obama going to Germany is what I was talking about.
You say if I can’t lend a hand to get out of the way. I tried to stay out of the way and mind my own business. They make it impossible for folks like me to stay out of the way.
OH, by liberal CEO, you mean Obama. Hmnnnn…..sorry I didn’t catch that. And you said “your liberal ceo…” Well, I am a critic of Obama, and he is not a ceo and on many issues, not even liberal. So you totally fooled me!
Is this is what you are slobbering about: “The Hannoversche Allegemeine newspaper says residents have been warned not to wave from the windows of their houses and apartment buildings as Obama and Merkel enter and leave the trade show because it could be seen as a threat.”???
Yes, Europe is paranoid about terrorist attacks. Yes, it is used, as it is in the US, to limit liberty. It has nothing to do with social democracy, however.
Who are the “They” who make it impossible for you to stay out of the way? Why don’t you lend a hand and help us elect the one uncorrupted candidate, the only one who is trusted and liked by the public? And if you can’t, just get out of the way.
Bernie? No, can’t feel ya on that. Big govt just isn’t the answer. Is that what it’s came to? If one cant make it on ones own the govts will take care of you. My ancestors were told that and now all live on a rez in New Mexico and my uncle is the tribal chief. I stand to lose almost $15k more a year if bernie pulls the wool. And I don’t think making everything free is the answer either. People haven’t learned how to appreciate in that form. Quality will suffer. Talk to me dale…
Where do you get your information? Social democracy is not about big government but helping the working and middle class receive more of the value created by their labor. Big government, in fact, is the product of Big Business, which uses government for tax breaks, subsidies, special favors, to start wars which profit the banks, energy, and weapons makers. Social democracy is about lessening the oligarchic power of the wealthy and creating a more democratic society.
If you taxes go up under Sanders’ tax plan, you will have to make more than $250K a yr, because under his plan, the rates stay the same. From 250K to 500K, the rates go up from 35% to 37%. Only at the very top, when you make over 10 million a yr will your rate rise to the top of 52% (from 40%) So if you make 10 million, you will pay not 4 million but 5.2 million, leaving you a paltry 4.8 million, a mere $15,000 a day. Oh the suffering that will cause.
So to pay an extra $15K a year, under Bernie’s plan , you would have to make about $400,000 a year. Since you likely don’t someone has been lying to you. You can see the plan here:
So if you make less than $250,000 a year, your taxes stay the same and for the amount over that, you pay 6% more (not on the whole total) up to 500K, etc. Less than 3% of households (often with more than one job) earn that much. Only 1% earn over 500K per household, so the increase from 35% to 39.6% would kick in for them.
But: Bernies plan includes free public university tuititon, saving millions of households thousands a year (to be paid for by a tiny tax on speculative transactions in an industry where the top hedge fund manager last year made 1.7 billion (the average of the top 25 was a mere 500 million), and by changing to Medicare for All, the savings would be 900 billion (400 B in lower overhead, since Medicare overhead is 1.3% compared to private at 15%; 170 billion saved in ER services for the uninsured (average visit is $2000), and 300 billion saved in not having tax breaks for medical costs. 900 billion is more than enough to cover everyone, raising coverage to 100%, and include dental and health.
So if you make up to $250K, your taxes stay the same but your kid’s tuition is free and you have no medical costs. How oppressive is that?
Tuition and healthcare are free because they are paid for by the higher taxes, which do not effect 97% of households, who stand to benefit. Like we have free roads, paid for by taxes.
So someone has been lying to you. When people pay their fair share of taxes, services can be provided for all at a much cheaper cost. That is why healthcare in all other 34 nations is universal, results in superior outcomes, and costs half as much. It aint free, it just costs half as much. That is why Canadians are now richer than Americans because they spend half as much on healthcare (thru taxes), which eliminates the parasitic middle man and the grossly expensive ER treatment those without insurance rely on after they are very sick.
Social democracy is not about big government but government which benefits everyone. You can prove it to yourself by looking at the results in northern Europe and Canada. Which country has the most poverty, median wages falling 40% since 1989, household income down 8% since 1999? It’s the US, the least socialist of all these nations.
Which candidate voted against the 3 trillion dollar war in Iraq, which has killed a million people? Why candidate voted against the Patriot Act and spying? Which candidate wants to help ordinary families put their children through college without enormous debt (now over a trillion)? Which candidate has never lied or taken money from the rich for favors? Which candidate is the only one with a net positive rating for honesty and trustworthiness.
I urge you not to listen to those who fear democracy and helping the middle and working class but to find out directly what Sanders is proposing and how he would pay for it.
Think about it: free tuition means more people can graduate from college; this results in more productivity, higher wages, more taxes based on higher wages, and as a consequence less welfare.
Universal healthcare means a healthier population, less sick days, more productivity, more taxes, and less need for Medicaid, etc programs that provide for the unhealthy.
There are no better investments, with excellent returns, than free tuition and universal healthcare. It means more progress, more productivity, more profits, less need for govt assistance and a larger tax base to reduce the debt.
Seek out the truth. If you make $400K, then your taxes will go up $15,000, but in that case, its time you paid your fair share, since you are in the top 1% whose wealth since 1989 has tripled while the median wage has fallen 40%.
Forget the dogma and propaganda (the Presidents who most expanded the government were not liberals but Reagan who tripled the debt and Bush II whose 8 budgets increased the debt by 117%.
Look at the Sanders programs from the horses mouth. Bernie has never lied, never gotten rich off his public service. Find out what he is proposing and ignore the cynics who are lying to you, my friend.
The rest of us don’t believe in the Tooth Fairy, but you go ahead and believe whatever you want. Thank you for the good laugh,,,I’ll be laughing all the way to the polls and next January when Trump is sworn in, I’ll send you some flowers.
How sad you are. My sympatrhy to your family, if you have one. I hve urged you to actually look at Bernie’s tax plan but you are afraid to learn the truth.
Healthcare is not free, just much cheaper when you make it single payer. Free tuition more than pays for itself in increased producteivity and higher wages and higher taxes. Graduates pay $200,000 more in taxes in their lifetimes, much more than invested to help them get a degree/.
The free stuff goes mostly to rich corporations, but you are too dense to see that so you parrot the propaganda of the rich corporatoins which are picking your pocket. Bernie says how we will pay for education and healthcare…he is honest and uncorrupted. Right wing propaganda does not trump honesty and a plan to help ordinary people . Please don’t waste my time anymore. I know where you are coming from, and it’s sad.
Why don’t you just leave the Land of the Free and go to one of your commie countries?
Get out of the way of you commies? Come and make me, little one.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,,,etc. Who do you think you are fooling? There’s no such thing as a free lunch, Bozo.
Fake laughter to mask a lack of rational response, delivered via the internet, created by the government.
Tell the banks, big pharma and big ag there is no free lunch. They get hundreds of billions. Tell it to the transnational fossil fuel corporations who, the IMF estimates, get over 5 trillion a year in public subsidies.
Medicare for all would not be free, just simpler and cheaper.
Do you support eliminating free lunches for poor children? Corporate free lunches for rich industries cost far more than feeding the needy.
Right wing cliches die hard for those who find it easier to condemn than to think.
I take it you did not look at Sanders tax plan, which beings to raise rates when you make over $250K. For the past 25 years, the median wages have fallen 40% while the incomes of those making over $250K have nearly tripled. It’s time for those who have been getting a free lunch to pay it back. You are one of those political scientists call those who oppose policies which would benefit them and support those that hurt them: that is what useful idiot is, and I hear your idiot laughter……………….as you use the free lunch of the internet to proclaim there is no such thing as a free lunch.
Your thinking that the old commie has any chance of winning makes me laugh. Your thinking that he would just tax those that make over 250K makes me laugh. You thinking that the big corporations don’t pay any tax makes me laugh. You thinking that more tax on the people who provide jobs and services wouldn’t be funded by the middle class makes me laugh. Your complete ignorance of economics makes me laugh. Your complete ignorance of America and what Americans will tolerate makes me laugh. Your belief that any of this pipe dream of Sanders’ wouldn’t involve making our already bloated government even bigger and less responsive to the people makes me laugh. Your regurgitating others’ lame beliefs about Socialism makes me laugh. Your inability to see that BIG GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM NOT THE SOLUTION really, really makes me laugh.
jOHN PODESTA A CLINTON CAMPAIGN BIG WHIG IS MENTIONED IN THE PAPERS….did he hide the Clinton Foundation $$….we know that Saudia Arabia, Qatar, Emerites Israel etc gave millions to the Clintons. Why did Hilary push this Ponzi scheme Trade deal with Panama in the first place. Bernie Sanders vehemently opposed it…HE knew what would happen and it has. Hilary I believe will be found to be up to her eye balls in this international criminal syndicate deal to rob the citizens of the world of their assets for the worlds dirty 1% elites. Is it time for a worldwide revolution?
Soros, Jooz, CIA, Mossad. The usual suspects. Zio Trash.
Ok. so Mr. Vladimir Putin was exposed in the Panama papers. It shows he had ideas to spend vacations in the Caribbeans in the future right. It also shows since he other plans in the future he would have not instigate a nuclear holocaust and would not pushed the nuclear lauch button. The Russian People might just find now someone that his warmonger enough to go all the way and use the nuclear launch codes. It looks like a brilliant move to have exposed Mr. Putin but he had personal interests for searching for peace. Now we might be stuck with a more radical leader that will use global lethal mutual destruction if necessary. It even could of been used as a bargaining chip by the US. if something was to go wrong in a regional conflict. Stupid Americans always the politics of the worse. Like if not all the members of the US. congress, White House members and Senate members don’t have a lot of cash stashed secretly in Panama accounts.
Now the war will begin between the two sides. The Panama papers and the other….I do not know what the name would be. May be Pacific papers. However, when they start fighting they will reveal and leak the papers of each side. We wait patiently and we will be able to identify all those who have committed crimes.
no fingers pointed at the US corp. why not? THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH “PAPERS” TO PRINT ALL THE GARBAGE THAT THE US HAS BEEN DOING.
