Disgraced Crypto Ex-CEO Was Plotting to Spend Nearly $1 Billion Boosting Dems, Reshaping American Politics: Report

Sam Bankman-Fried, former CEO of now-bankrupt crypto exchange FTX, had planned to become the biggest donor to the Democratic Party in 2024, a cycle in which he might have spent as much as $1 billion, according to investigative journalist Theodore Schleifer, writing for Puck News Wednesday.

The erstwhile billionaire filed in April, 2022, to incorporate an umbrella organization known as The Center for the Future in Delaware, according to Schleifer, citing corporate database Open Corporates. The organization intended to tackle a variety of hot-button issues ranging from pandemic preparedness to democracy reform, the foundation of which was the first salvo in a 50-year influence campaign designed to fundamentally transform American politics, Schleifer alleges, citing sources who spoke with Bankman-Fried’s aides.

Italians Who Refuse Job Offers to Have Social Benefits Revoked, Says Meloni

Italians on unemployment benefits who turn down reasonable job offers will have their access to social security payments revoked in new laws expected to be introduced by Giorgia Meloni’s new administration.

In a pledge to clamp down on a relief scheme that Meloni claims rewards laziness and is widely abused, the new Italian prime minister vowed to amend the citizens’ income available across the country, making it conditional upon those who receive job offers while receiving the benefit to take the position.

The citizens’ income is an initiative first introduced by the left-wing Five Star Movement and sees over 3.5 million Italians receive a payment of €780 per month. Receipt of the benefit is widely skewed toward the poorer south of the country where 2.3 million of the recipients reside.

Revealed: FTX Crypto Bro Showered Media Orgs Vox, Propublica, Intercept, Semafor and More With Investment Money

In addition to being a major donor to the Democrat Party during the 2021-22 election season, disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was a major donor to several liberal media outlets, including ProPublica, Vox, The Intercept, The Law and Justice Journalism Project, and the recently launched Semafor, leading to speculation about their ability to objectively report on FTX.

“They all took it,” Human Events Daily’s Jack Posobiec noted on Twitter, “and none of them broke the story.”

As Semafor launched in October, Reuters reported that “The platform said it has so far raised $25 million from investors including David Bradley, owner of The Atlantic magazine; Jessica Lessin, founder of technology website Information; and cryptocurrency exchange FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried.”

That was only a few short weeks before FTX collapsed. Customers made a run on the exchange to withdraw their deposits, only to find that the company did not actually have it. FTX is now in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings in the state of Delaware, and Semafor is out a whole bunch of money.

After Semafor published an article about disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried’s relationship with Elon Musk, indicating that despite Musk’s claim that his “bulls*** meter was redlining,” Musk pointed out that their reporting was perhaps not entirely on the up-and-up where FTX was concerned.

SBF Issues Another Rambling Apology and “Description of What Happened”, Comes Off as Disturbed Sociopath

He just can’t help himself: disgraced sociopath, record-breaking fraudster and prolific Democratic donor — not necessarily in that order — Sam Bankman-Fried, has issued another apology to his staff in a letter that outlined a crash in “collateral” to less than $9 billion from $60 billion.

“I didn’t mean for any of this to happen, and I would give anything to be able to go back and do things over again,” the corpulent 30-year-old who may or may not be in the Bahamas apologized yet again in the message sent to employees Tuesday, although he really should be apologizing to the millions of clients whom he wiped out. Alas, like the recurrent ramblings of a psychopath, Sam’s takeaway was that the implosion at FTX was the side-effect of an unfortunate bank run, and had nothing to do with SBF’s actions; that’s because SBF still refuses to take any responsibility for what happened and makes zero admission that the factors that led to this historic bankruptcy were in his control all along. Sam claims that he didn’t “realize the magnitude of risk.” His main remorse — like that of any pathological individual — is that he got caught.

Thanksgiving Dinner Cost Soars 20% From 2021, Biden Admin Blames Climate Change & Putin

While spending time with family and friends at Thanksgiving remains important for many Americans, the cost of that indulgence has never been higher, up a stunning 20% from last year to $64.05 for the classic feast.

The cost for the classic meal was the most affordable in the South — $58.42, followed by the Northeast — $64.02, Midwest — $64.26 and West — $71.37.

“General inflation slashing the purchasing power of consumers is a significant factor contributing to the increase in average cost of this year’s Thanksgiving dinner,” said AFBF Chief Economist Roger Cryan.

“Farmers are working hard to meet growing demands for food — both here in the U.S. and globally — while facing rising prices for fuel, fertilizer and other inputs,” said Cryan.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Nov. 19 acknowledged “underwhelming performances” by Republicans in the midterm elections and contrasted the losses elsewhere with what he called a “true Republican landslide” in Florida.

“We added four new Republican Congressmen to the U.S. House of Representatives from the state of Florida,” DeSantis told attendees at the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas on Saturday.

“We secured supermajorities in the Florida legislature—the most Republicans we have ever had in Florida’s history.”

Andy Ngo Reports: Five More Antifa Members in San Diego Plead Guilty to Violent Attacks During Riot

Five more Antifa members have admitted to having a role in violent felonies in San Diego, Calif. in January 2021 where beachgoers, Trump supporters, and a dog were violently assaulted. At a court hearing on Nov. 18, five accepted plea deals instead of going to trial.

Their plea deals were made more than a month after trans Antifa member Erich Louis “Nikki” Yach, 38, made a plea deal in September. Yach was the first of 11 defendants to plead guilty, and pleaded guilty to three violent felonies, including conspiracy to riot, and was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison earlier this month. Yach has a prior violent criminal record that was a factor in the sentencing.

The US has committed over $19 billion in weapons and aid to Ukraine since the attack by Russia on February 24. The aid package will be done via presidential drawdown authority, allowing the Pentagon to use its own stockpile of weapons to ship to Ukraine, reports AP.

Cruz Wants GOP Investigations to Focus on Joe Biden Instead of His Son

As Republicans vow to investigate the alleged misconduct of the Biden family and, especially, first son Hunter Biden, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz wants lawmakers to prioritize President Joe Biden instead.

On his “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast, the senator said “[t]he focus needs to be on Joe Biden; this is not about Hunter Biden, any more than if you’re going after the mafia and you catch some low-level enforcer, or you’re going after a drug cartel and you catch some mule who swallowed balloons full of heroin.”

“It’s not about the poor schlub who got caught. It’s about the boss,” Fox News quoted Cruz as saying. “It’s about the big guy. It’s about the Godfather, Joe Biden is the Godfather. He is the one who ultimately is profiting on this corruption. He is the one who is abusing official authority to further the criminal activity of his family members. And that’s why this is an issue of public corruption.”

‘Died Suddenly’: Documentary Claims Link Between COVID Vaccines and ‘Great Reset’

Stew Peters’ new film, Died Suddenly, is set to be released on November 21st. The documentary investigates the spike in sudden deaths in vaccinated individuals and includes explanations from doctors, scientists, and embalmers on what they think is happening and why they think it is happening.

The trailer for the film begins with the question, “Why do we never believe them?” which is then followed by a man explaining that “The governments know, this has been well planned. This is Agenda 2030, this is the Great Reset.”

The trailer for the film features the expert opinions of those that feel the need to give a voice to the dead and features videos of athletes, teenagers, and other people suddenly collapsing in a series of clips.

Between January 2021 and April 2022, GoodSciencing.com recorded a monthly average of 42 athletes — from young amateurs to professionals — who “died suddenly”, mostly from cardiac-related issues. They then compared those numbers to a study published in 2006 by the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland, which found just 2.35 such deaths per month worldwide between 1966 and 2004.

This corresponds to a 1700% increase in sudden deaths among athletes since the COVID-19 vaccine was offered to the general public.

Howls of Outrage After New York Times Confirms SBF to Speak Alongside Zelenskyy, Yellen

As we discussed last night, Sam Bankman-Fried has now demonstrated that he is both a pathological liar and a sociopath, the kind who in “explaining” to his employees how he stole billions (over $4 billion according to new FTX CEO John J. Ray) from the now bankrupt FTX, an act which left it insolvent and without liquidity, called it “loans” which were “generally” not used for “large amounts of personal consumption” (just “small amounts” used for such trivial items as $40 million penthouses and private jets).

And the only reason we don’t officially call him a criminal just yet, is because he has not yet confirmed he used client money from his exchange to fund his personal hedge fund, an act which would cost any other individual decades in jail… but not prominent democrats like SBF or Jon Corzine, of course. Plus it’s the US legal system’s job to do that, not ours. Although we are growing increasingly skeptical this prominent Democratic donor will ever see the inside of a courtroom.

It’s not just us: with much of the entire world demanding to know how this corpulent 30-year-old still has not been thrown in prison, or at least charged with a variety of crimes, the NYT just confirmed to the entire world what a farce the one-time paper of record has become, and how it is willing to whore itself out for clicks — not to mention prominent Democrat donors — because moments after SBF tweeted that he will be speaking with Andrew Ross-Sorkin moderated NYT “summit” on Nov 30…

Kari Lake Files First Election Challenge Lawsuit, Vows More Action Ahead

Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake said Wednesday that she sued Maricopa County to force it to release documents about voting irregularities in the midterms, a prelude to a larger legal challenge she’s planning to challenge the election results.

“Every single rule was pretty much broken when it came to Election Day voting where they punish the people who chose to show up on Election Day,” Lake said on the Wednesday edition of the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “So we filed this lawsuit in court today asking the county to cough up some of the public documentation we need for our bigger lawsuit.”

Lake says she believes that her Democratic opponent, Katie Hobbs, ran a botched election and what was done incorrectly needs to come to light. Hobbs was the Arizona secretary of state, and thus in charge of running the election, but she was also the Democratic candidate who was declared the winner by the media, and she declared victory in the race. The election is supposed to be officially certified on November 28.

Tucker Carlson Warns D.C. Elite and Media Are Pushing Society to ‘Tolerate Pedophiles’

Fox News star Tucker Carlson is warning that the corporate media and political elite in Washington D.C. are pushing for society to “tolerate pedophiles.”

Speaking during the opening monologue of his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host notes that people who believe that an alleged “shadowy cabal of pedophiles” is operating in “the highest levels of politics and finance” are often demonized for demanding justice.

He said that allegations of powerful people engaging in pedophilia and using “their power to hide the crimes they commit against children” are often brushed off as “so-called conspiracy theories.”

However, Carlson argues that people who call for investigations into child abuse are now being threatened with criminal charges themselves while instances of real child abuse are being ignored, or even celebrated.

Video: Dr. Atlas Sums Up Fauci’s Legacy of “Massive Harm”

As Anthony Fauci officially ‘retired’ Tuesday, former White House Coronavirus Task Force advisor Dr. Scott Atlas eloquently summarised the legacy Fauci leaves behind, one of “massive harm” to society.

Appearing on Laura Ingraham’s show, Dr. Atlas described Fauci’s as having “presided over the biggest failure in public health history over two different presidential administrations. “

Atlas further charged that Fauci’s policies “were implemented and those policies shifted the burden of this illness from the affluent to the poor, and incurred massive harm on our children, psychological damage, long-lasting damage, an obesity crisis, and we really haven’t seen tip of the iceberg on that damage to children, and again, worse on low income and poor kids.”

Walmart Manager Opens Fire in Break Room, Killing 6

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — A Walmart manager opened fire on fellow employees in the break room of a Virginia store, killing six people in the country’s second high-profile mass shooting in four days, police and a witness said Wednesday.

The gunman, who apparently shot himself, was dead when police found him, Chesapeake Police Chief Mark G. Solesky said. There was no clear motive for the shooting, which also put four people in the hospital.

The store was busy just before the attack Tuesday night as people stocked up ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, a shopper told a local TV station.

Employee Briana Tyler said workers had gathered in the break room as they typically did ahead of their shifts.

Alberta Justice Minister Says Ottawa is Seeking to Ban All Legal Firearms Ownership

After the Liberals moved to ban hundreds more new models of rifles and shotguns through a last-minute amendment to Bill C-21, Alberta Justice Minister Tyler Shandro says the federal government is seeking to ban legal firearm ownership altogether.

On Tuesday, Liberal MPs sitting on the Parliamentary Public Safety and National Security committee included an amendment to Bill C-21 — proposed legislation to further restrict access to handguns in Canada — which would ban virtually all semi-automatic firearms, including semi-automatic hunting rifles.

Shandro said the “last-minute amendments” target more than two million licensed Canadian firearms owners, including hunters, farmers and target shooters who collectively own hundreds of thousands of firearms.

EU Parliament Hit by Pro-Kremlin Cyberattack After Russian Terror Designation

The European Parliament on Wednesday voted to formally recognize Russia as a “state sponsor of terrorism” for what it called “deliberate attacks and atrocities carried out by the Russian Federation against the civilian population of Ukraine.”

European legislators also cited “serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law amount to acts of terror” in the overwhelming vote in favor of the terror label. The move is more symbolic than anything, however, carry no specific legal consequences for Moscow.

The EP is now urging the European Union to enact the same, which would mark a major escalation in already spiraling relations, as it would also likely require more sanctions.

This is according to Flemish minister-president Jan Jambon’s response to a parliamentary question by Flemish MP Sam van Rooy.

“The Flemish Government thus legitimises and subsidises a global lobbying organisation that clearly pursues a well-defined ideological agenda, namely that of globalism,” van Rooy responded.

‘Stereotypes About Central and Eastern Europeans Being Lesser Countries Are Fading,’ Says Poland’s NATO Ambassador

Politico’s Matthew Karnitschnig recently wrote that Poland probably has the strongest army on mainland Europe and its position is likely to strengthen.

Poland, following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, has been purchasing significant amounts of weapons from the U.S. and South Korea, and increased its share of GDP spent on defense. It also responded calmly to the recent missile explosion in eastern Poland which killed two civilians and threatened a diplomatic crisis.

According to Politico, the U.S. now sees Poland as its most important military partner in Europe because Poland, unlike Germany, is serious about its army and remains committed to considerable defense spending.

UK: Oversight Board Tells Meta to Stop Complying With Police Requests to Censor Rap Music

Meta’s Oversight Board said that Meta should not have complied with a request from London’s Metropolitan Police to ban a drill music track. Drill music is a rap genre that politicians and law enforcement agencies have associated with gang violence.

In January, rapper Chinx (OS) posted a video of his song “Secrets Not Safe.” Shortly after posting the song on Instagram, Meta received an email from the police requesting the removal of the song. Meta escalated the case to a team for special consideration, and ruled that it violated its policies because it referenced a shooting that took place in 2017 and included what police believed to be a “threatening call to action.”

Biden Prints Money for the Taliban

by Daniel Greenfield

After being described as “partners” by the Biden administration, the Taliban announced that they’re bringing back sharia punishments by chopping off hands and stoning their victims.

Last year, the Biden administration had praised the Taliban’s “openness” to women’s rights.

This development puts the nail in the coffin of claims by Biden administration figures that the Jihadist organization had changed into a kinder, gentler Taliban. But the media has conveniently ignored revelations of the close collaboration between the administration and the Taliban.

Front Page Magazine was one of the few conservative publications that exposed the over $1.1 billion in aid directed by the administration after the Taliban takeover, the special licenses issued by the Biden administration authorizing financial transactions with the Taliban and Al Qaeda’s Haqqani Network to distribute that aid, and the billions stolen from 9/11 families for the Taliban.

The Biden administration has been stonewalling the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction with the State Department and Samantha Power’s USAID refusing to allow employees to be interviewed about, among other things, their “compliance with the laws and regulations prohibiting transfers of funds to members of the Taliban and the Haqqani Network”…

China Restricts Movement Across iPhone City

Update (1100ET):

China’s Zhongzhou, home to Foxconn’s massive iPhone factory, will begin to enforce mobility restrictions across eight districts in main urban areas on Friday. The reason, well, authorities blame it on ‘rising Covid infections,’ though we should note that the new restrictions come as massive unrest has erupted at the factory of more than 200,000 workers.

Zhongzhou authorities posted a statement on its WeChat page on Wednesday about mobility restrictions from Friday through Sunday.

“At present, the epidemic situation in our city is still severe and complicated,” the statement said. Health officials will conduct daily mass PCR tests and request that residents in high-risk areas stay within their homes.

He was given permission to stay while his made-up story was investigated and managed to stay three years until he was finally deported. In the meantime he was able to get work paying ten times what he could make in his home country.

    The New American interviews Dr Lee Merritt a former military doctor and bioweapons expert who comments on claims that vaccinated people spread spike proteins that are said to harm unvaccinated people – especially women.

    10,000s of people and doctors around the world report blood clots, disrupted menstrual cycles and bleeding after being vaccinated or being around vaccinated people. The idea of self-dispersing vaccines is spreading online.

    Lee Merritt, former director of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, says there is research on self-dispersing covaccines , such as attempts to reduce a mouse population in Australia using similar technology.

    Merritt completely rejects the CDC’s attempts to vaccinate children with the experimental vaccines.

  2. ‘separatist Scottish government’s plan to strike out on its own’
    That’s a laugh, the fake nationalists want to leave a very succesful political union to join the undemocractic EU.
    Sturgeon who trained as a lawyer, undoubtedly knew fine well she could not call another ‘once in a generation’ vote (how the SNP framed the last vote of which Scots voted NO) never-mind nowhere near a generation has passed, it was a stunt quite probably so they could play the victim and keep them in the news, ‘Oh look, big bad Westminster full of English people won’t give us a vote!’
    Ironically it’s not a difficult argument to make that Brexit takes Scotland far closer to being an independent nation-state than joining an EU that sees nation-states as the root of much evil.
    Seeking EU membership says so much about SNP claims of wanting an independent nation-state.

    Incidentally the SNP for many years claimed oil-money would fund their plans, however now they have Green party alliances (and the oil’s running low), they’re apparently building on Alex ‘not allowed to be alone with female staff’ Salmon’s grandiose fantasy of being the ‘Saudi Arabia of renewable energy’.
    I’m not sure where the pro-Sharia courts health minister Humza is on the new Green SNP or the ECHR which new EU members must sign up to, as according to him ‘Sharia courts are the sign of a mature democracy’, whereas of course the ECHR ruled that Sharia courts have no place in a modern democracy.
    Mind you the SNP have no problem cherry-picking policies if it keeps them in power or for that matter playing on historical hatreds for electoral advantage but as for ‘striking out on their own’…if only…..preferably to the far North or even off planet….

  3. The Stew Peters documentary reveals the spike caused by the protein spike.
    I always wondered what the “black blood” looked like and coffee grinds is what came to mind while watching.
    Kind of hard to keep the blood flowing with pasta or rubber band structures in the veins and arteries and I’m sure Big Pharm will have something for that as well.
    Meloni and Kari Lake prove that politicians don’t have to be ugly old geriatric fossils with the it will be hell on earth soon but I’ll be gone attitude.
    Hopefully Meloni is having a gut busting laugh somewhere over the latest proclamations from Fwance.

  4. French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin described Italians as “enemies of France” because of the Meloni government’s refusal to allow migrant ferries to land in Italy.

    Have you seen a more pervert than French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin.

    And this zombie was elected.
    France and other European countries suffer from yoke and whips of islam daily.

    How come they nrvrt leasrn a lesson. What makes islam so dear to the west: common ground: both hate Christianity and Judaism .

    I thought in the west there were laws against hate, but not against hating Christians and Jews. Legitimate.

    Hating jihadis is legitimate.
