I came upon an article in a French paper in which excerpts of private emails between two individuals named in the Panama Papers and indicted on money laundering charges were revealed, and I might have read on except for a nag… How did ’emails’ suddenly become a part of the Leaked Panama documents? Because I don’t know anyone who shares emails with their attorney – as in Mossack Fonseca.
Therefore, the ’emails’ had to have been hijacked separately. Or the paper was ‘not relaying the truth. Or the Leak itself is not what it is being represented.
In any of those scenarios, the Panama Leak is looking scourgier and scourgier.
Add to the fray that Germany’s newspapers are tangled in a web of the same layers of shell companies as the Panama Papers decry – and the media in Europe is looking more and more ‘controlled’.
A German comedian who read a vulgar poem about Turkey’s Erdogan is being investigated and could face 4 years in jail for slander as Germany decides whether they will prosecute on ‘behalf of Turkey’. And yet, the Panama Papers which were illegally obtained by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung are above the law and in fact will not be shared in their entirety to anyone else – including the German Law. How is that law working for you…?
Why? I think everyone has come to see the crass demonizing that they were supposed to create – and failed miserably. Instead, the Soros agenda bungled and now in stating they won’t release more names – they have bungled again and shown the world exactly how contrived these lame blackmailers can be.
Mossack Fonseca isn’t even the largest global offshore legal firm, in fact it didn’t even make the Big Ten, so why target them?
Appleby Global is ranked Numero Uno and has actually won awards for it’s expertise and championship of offshore accounts; 2008 China Award, 2010 British Award and 2010 Lawyer Award. They have been the Pacman of law firms gobbling up smaller ones for decades. If morality was the true instigator for the Leak, why not target the Big Ten?
According to the Law Gazette published in the UK, the lawyers are cheering greater regulations for offshore accounts because it means more fees for them in order to make sure their clients comply. As a result, business is Booming! Focusing on the Asian investors, on the Luxembourg Holdings for real estate funds and private equities, catering predominantly to France, Germany and the UK, the law firms are doing high fives!
The Panama Leak – would seem to be more of a grudge against Mossack Fonseca than any of the thousands upon thousands of clients – perhaps a takeover bid was offered and refused and this is simply vengeance. The select list is equally odd, but the Cameron connection is most definitely a specific target – a warning:
According to the Law Gazette, David Cameron is one of their biggest allies and supporters:
David Cameron: ‘I do not think it is fair any longer to refer to any of the Overseas Territories or Crown dependencies as tax havens. They have taken action to make sure that they have fair and open tax systems.’ Collas Crill group partner Paul Wilkes, who is based in Jersey, captures the mood among offshore lawyers: ‘David Cameron will get a few free drinks if he is ever around on our island.’
But for some reason, we don’t hear this in our infamous journalistic press. Why?
Because what is printed is exactly what was ordered to be printed. Nothing more – nothing less.
In Germany not only are the papers censored, but the German citizens are required to PAY for the censored news whether they want to or not: Germany has a GEZ fee that every household is required to pay for government sponsored television and radio whether they own a television or have the desire to own one or not. If their home doesn’t even receive the transmitted service, or they don’t speak German – they are still required to pay. Sounds like government indoctrination…
Sounding a bit heavy-handed? It gets worse.
A German newspaper editor and journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, published a book in 2014 in which he details not just the censorship of the German media, but the fact that journalists are ‘told what to write and the slant that the article should take’. Who is doing the telling? According to Ulfkotte – the CIA and German intelligence. Where did Ulfkotte work? Within the same network of newspapers that was created post WWII, 1945 by the US military, the – Allgemeine Zeitung.
It is open knowledge that Merkel has demanded that Twitter, Facebook, Google and Redditt, all censor their sites for what she terms to be anti-immigrant rhetoric or hate speech. And they complied. Is that any different than China blocking the phrase “Panama Papers” from their search engines? NO. Germany has evolved into a Communist regime and the people didn’t notice – it was slow and methodical in the making.
Wolfgang Herles, former head of public broadcaster ZDF, has also maintained that the media is instructed to write what Ms. Merkel dictates. He refers to the media as the “State Media” given that there is no journalistic integrity any longer, it is completely controlled. Topics of articles are dictated by the government. And while there are private news agencies, their roots seem to stem from the US Allied Military immediately post WWII.
One of the largest media groups in the world is Bertelsmann SE operating in over 50 countries. Privately held by a number of Foundations and the Mohn family, it is more than a bit rough around the edges with ties to the Nazi’s where it gained it’s initial fortune.
While Nero slept… It is not just the US media filtering and censoring, it is a worldwide phenomena that does not bode well –
