FTX AND THE UKRAINE AS MONEY LAUNDERING AND TRANSHIPMENT OP

Just a few weeks ago, I recorded the Solari 3rd Quarter wrap-up with our friend Catherine Austin Fitts, and as might be expected, the subject of the Ukraine came up. When it did, I mentioned that my suspicion was that the whole "war-and-aid" business was less about the Ukraine and more about providing vast amounts of money to be laundered to whomever, and that very little of the money was actually making its way to the Ukrainian military, but rather into the pockets of its oligarchs, and, of course, interested figures in the West.  I also argued that the actual physical weapons being shipped were, I suspected, being trans-shipped to "interested parties." Ms. Fitts concurred, and we moved along.

But if you've been following our vidchats or this website or even my interviews and blogs over the years, I've been trying to point out that the whole Ukraine has been turned into an operation to line the pockets of certain people and corporations, in addition to being an operation to expand NATO and the EU, and ultimately to project western power and corruption into the heart of European Russia. One need not think of the relationship of the corrupt Bai Dens to the country, nor of the relationship of "big agribusiness" and the likes of IG Farbensanto to the country, or the more recent story of the biolabs uncovered by Russian troops.

Now, however, with the collapse of the FTX crypto-"currency" it appears there is beginning to be some hard evidence at least for the Bai Den and money-laundering aspects of the story:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Tens of Billions of US Dollars Were Transferred to Ukraine and then Using FTX Crypto Currency the Funds Were Laundered Back to Democrats in US

The article begins with a couple of excellent questions, and you can number me in the column of those asking them:

Did you ever wonder where all those billions of dollars were going in Ukraine?  Did you ever wonder why anyone was trusting the elites in US politics like the Bidens with billions in funds going to Ukraine?

The article goes on to detail that Sam Blankman-Fried was seeking to grease the regulatory skids, and was, of course, a major donor to the Democrats:

Sam Blankman-Fried, prolific Democratic donor and ex-CEO of now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, funded the campaigns of members of Congress overseeing the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), one of the key bodies tasked with regulating the crypto industry and the subject of Bankman-Fried’s aggressive lobbying.

Bankman-Fried’s FTX is currently under investigation by the CFTC and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) after Bankman-Fried allegedly moved $10 billion in client assets from his crypto exchange to his trading firm Alameda Research, and a liquidity crisis at his  exchange which prompted the company to file for bankruptcy.

Then came the announcement that FTX was going to "help" the Ukraine set things up for donations in cryto-"currencies":

Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the CEO of FTX, Sam Bankman Fried has come forward to help a crypto donation project. He humbly announced that FTX will be supporting the Ukrainian Ministry of Finance and other communities in collecting crypto donations for the country. The Ukrainian government has received over $60 million in crypto donations from all over the world.

Then a tweet appeared on Twitter - and one wonders if it would have prior to Mr. Musk's purchase of the company - alleging that the whole thing was an op to (surprise surprise) launder money:

If true, then the problem has become, well, "ginormous and gimungous" as the old radio talk show host Art Bell used to say, because it implicates that an entire political party is a component in a vast international money laundering scheme, with the money itself disappearing like Republican ballots in an Arizona, Nevada, or Pennsylvania election "count."

As for FTX's collapse, it should be noted that it managed to pull off something that not even Enron could do: there's nothing - zero, zilch, nada - left, and even Enron could at least point to a few pennies, quarters, and dimes in change purses left in office desk drawers, a few worn out computers - something - to liquidate. But with FTX, zero, zilch, nada.

But consider the implication of the article, and sequi pecuniam:

  1. the misadministration of Bai Den Jo gets Congress to give billions of dollars in aid to the Ukraine. This effort, it should be noted, includes Republicans as well as Democrats. In other words, the "narrative" about Russia = Bad and The Ukraine = Good is a bipartisan orthodoxy;
  2. Once this money arrives in The Ukraine, its leaders and oligarchs take their "cut", and then "invest" the remainder in FTX and Blankman-Fried's crypto-"currency", which is
  3. Then laundered back to the USA to Democrat donors, candidates, and given the context, one is permitted to speculate that perhaps some of this money was used to effect the results of the last "selection".

Or to put it country simple, taxpayers dollars were laundered through a corrupt crypto-"currency" to line the pockets of the very same people using the colour of law to tax people, to launder the money, to line the pockets of the very same people who &c &c &c.

The only (virtual) silver-lining in the whole mess is that at least we know some of the actual names of the perpetrators.

See you on the flip side...

    A few months ago I heard about how the Ukraine President was pleading for more weapons and aid and the frequency in which he was making these requests. It then made me wonder how much of these weapons are getting to the war effort and how much is going to other parties, like organised crime? Then I heard about then British PM Boris Johnson flying in to Ukraine unexpectedly to tell President Zolinski (sp?) to keep on fighting and that impromptu visit made me think who is he really conveying the message on behalf of?

    It is very interesting to read all about the rich and famous who had their snout in the trough at the FTX Crypto Bahamas Conference in April this year.

    Here is enough proof that these famous people are detached from reality and live in a bubble. Surely, the time has come for a revolution?

    A few items that indicate this is a very high connection scandal that could threaten the pseudo-elite that wants to control and loot the US (and the rest of the world). Therefore, Sam B-F may go low profile and then go the way of Gary Web, Epstein etc. we’ll see.

    FTX a WEF “stakeholder”; founder Sam Bankman-Fried was a very large Dem party contributor with money from ??; his father a Professor of Law and Business at Stanford Law School; his mother Barbara Fried is at Stanford law and authored: “Facing Up to Scarcity: The Logic and Limits of Nonconsequentialist Thought” (2020); Sam’s aunt is on the WEF in a pandemic role; FTX’s girl CEO’s father was econ dept. head at MIT; there were FTX connections to the SEC which appears to have treated FTX with unusal leniency; FTX said it was helping Ukraine apparently with money flows (how much was actually going to relief and war effort, how much laundering ops diverted where?).

      . . . The general connectivity to [law] schools and firms suggest a great deal at attempting plausible deniability schemes, as if using the law against itself. As if scripting a court case to evade evidentiary proof with district attorney’s most lenient for not prosecuting. Almost as if those involved had computational help with a vast database of information to draw from. Many of the people suggested involved are not a typical slouch-on-a-couch – they seem to know their stuff in and out of the courtrooms – their playground at law.

      The efforts of [corruptology], in the name of the law, goes on. And they (the corrupt oligarchs of The Ukraine) want into NATO? Makes one wonder who’s missing a lethal missile into Poland these days if the cash flow kept changing hands and didn’t procure missile(s) to send to The Ukraine.. Someone broke a PROMIS. Or the bribe payout wasn’t big enough.

    • ragiza on November 16, 2022 at 9:05 am

      A correction: “FTX’s girl CEO” is Caroline Ellison and she was actually CEO of Alameda, an investment fund connected to Sam B-F. Her qualifications? Daddy is dept head of the econ dept. at MIT, what else did she need?

      Apparently, about $10 billion of customer funds were shifted from FTX to Alameda, and 10 or 20 pct of that $10 billion is now missing, and affected FTX customers may be out of luck.

      Fortune magazine had Sam B-F on its cover and was hyping him as the next Warren Buffet…. but of course…

    Without any shadow of a doubt, the Ukrainian conflict is (among other things) a giant money-, arms-, and who-knows-what-else laundering operation. And the Ukraine was very probably a laundry facility long before the conflict started. What I myself find noteworthy in this story is that it exposes something I’ve long suspected about cryptocurrencies: one of the main reasons our overlords allowed them to flourish is that cryptos are the most efficient means of money laundering and covert-ops funding ever created. Of course, if some random plebeian uses them for illicit trafficking, he’ll be prosecuted — such trafficking is a privilege reserved for the patricians!

    • Joseph Aiello on November 15, 2022 at 9:27 am

      Maybe efficient, but because of the public ledger, it is easily tracked and traced. That is how people found out FTX was draining their accounts even after they declared bankruptcy. The best would be the government on a public ledger. Then we could see all the transactions. LOL, right.
      Transparency is possible. But it cuts many ways.

    • Bizantura on November 15, 2022 at 4:42 pm

      Bingo, my thoughts exactly.

  7. Thomas on November 14, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    We all knew (except the people that still believe “The News” is fair and balanced) U.S. taxpayer dollars were being laundered through Ukraine. Now we caught them. The question is what will we do? To be clear I am in no way advocating violence. Rather we need to use influence, our dollars, the law, and our voices to continue to make these people uncomfortable. Oh and after the FTX laundering scheme was exposed Baby Soros is calling for peace. Go figure.

      Digital currency will make voting with your dollars impossible. Likely why it was created. And unwanted voices are now being silenced with the push of a button. Likely with boots on the ground as well in the near future. Welcome to our Elites Utopia(Theirs, not ours.)

      • Thomas on November 16, 2022 at 4:07 pm

        While I tend to agree with you, recent history (CNN/Netflix/Paypal) shows that people can still have an influence if they work together. I have no doubt the Elites are trying to keep the rest of us under their heel (Vaccine Mandates/Lockdowns) while they attempt to build a utopia but the power has been and always will be with the people. At least while we still have the numbers and Skynet has not yet gone online. Word on the street is Michael Lewis, author of ‘The Big Short’ is going to write his next book about FTX and SBF.

  8. Richard on November 14, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Yet another example of money (currency) in motion. Quite the ongoing global swindle with many PROMIS’s once again brokered, voted, imposed, and likely, soon to be broken. . . On to the weather. . . .

  9. marcos toledo on November 14, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Let’s face reality for some time now both the Democratic and Republican parties have been shell-front companies. Political parties in name only like their counterparts in Western Europe are beholding their shadow masters, whoever they really are.

  10. Horizon03 on November 14, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Sorry but with such news and Dr Farrell comments, I’ve lost respect for both republican and democrat leadership in the USA. It looks like a banana republic. Moreover after a week, elections are not completed yet, what a joke. The only remedy will be a major financial crisis and don’t worry, it’s coming. It usually goes hand in hand with corruption.

    • marcos toledo on November 14, 2022 at 8:29 pm

      Yes, Horizon03 all we have had in the USA are Banana Republic Elections but then what have our overlords supported around the World Banana Republics so the chickens have come home to roost.

      And war

  11. CharlieF on November 14, 2022 at 3:02 pm

    So, now that the midterm selections are over, does that mean the war in the Ukraine is also over?

    • CharlieF on November 14, 2022 at 3:04 pm

      Or rather, is the virtue signalling of the USSA over? Can we go back to lovkdowns and mask mandates now, please?

    Buy war bonds, and get bigger bang for the buck.

      Moscow, September 15-16, 1812.

      It seems as if the encircling flames have spread to the Emperor’s mind. By turns, he [Napoleon] leaps to his feet, sits down again, or tramps hastily through the rooms of the palace. His abrupt movements betray his terrible agitation. He abandons an urgent task, resumes it, abandons it once more, that he may fling the window wide. He exclaims:

      «What a dreadful sight! Their own work! So many palaces! How stupendous a decision! Who could have expected anything of the kind? What men they are! They are Scythians!»

      – Emil Ludwig, “Napoleon”, 1922.

    Remember how the US and Britain stopped a peace deal between Ukraine and Russia in the Spring?
    This perpetuated the war and the bogus funding.
    How many Ukrainians died with this extension of the war for fraudulent money laundering to the Dem and probably Repub politicians?
    Very evil people.
