Going Dutch in Panama

Since when do all-powerful sovereign entities with deep dark links to ancient networks of occult banksters (aka Rothschild) ever, EVER, have "to pay" for information from lesser, two-bit hoods? Answer: they don't.

That's why I almost did a spit-take with my morning French roast when Ameera David reported that the government of Denmark has made a deal with the infamous "Panama Papers" whistleblower to actually "buy" his information and use it to barely just now crack down on centuries' worth of Danish banking corruption and tax evasion (cough, cough). As a reminder, the Panama Papers story broke right after President Obama visited Argentina's President Macri down in Bariloche, Macri himself being named as one of the evildoers in the leak. (RM story linked here.) The Panama Papers has been largely seen as another one of George Soros' propaganda projects.

Both RussiaToday and The Guardian (linked here) noted that this is the first instance of any government plunking down cash to buy the seemingly valuable data. 

PRE-SIFTED

Jim Sørensen, a Danish tax chief, explains how this deal went down and what supposed benefit the Danish judicial system will gain from this purchase:

The source sent us a ‘sample’, which we got people to study over the summer holidays. This convinced us of the quality of the documents. They are real and they contain information that is very relevant to us,” he said.

He added: “They are about specific individuals. They also provide super-interesting information about the methods used by advisors and intermediaries. They can give us a breakthrough in the investigation of tax havens.”

Sørensen said the source had “selected and sifted” the material before turning it over to the government. “We have the impression that the source has extremely good insight into everything the press writes in Denmark, and is very well informed about what is going on,” he said.

Yeah, I'll bet the little sampler was indeed carefully selected. Hooks usually are. This whole farce raises so many implications, mostly comical, that I can only list a handful. Feel free to post your own insights in the Comments down below. Seriously, we ought to do some kind of Deep Throat Caption Contest here.

1. Sooo, judicial agencies of sovereign governments are no longer able to investigate the criminal side of tax havens by themselves? What are you guys doing -- outsourcing your own jobs? They can't just issue subpoenas and whatnot? They now have to use taxpayer's money in order to recover taxpayer's money? Who are these clowns, relatives of America's own hamstrung SEC or CFTC?

2. "Super-interesting information" ... more interesting than porn? Surely not.

3. "This is a golden opportunity to show that we are actually going after people who cheat." And before that, you were doing WHAT, exactly? Imbibing Copenhagen's finest?

My eyebrows were further raised when none other than COMMERZBANK was mentioned within the article:

This raises the prospect that other European countries may discreetly be buying data on their own citizens. In 2014, German tax officials paid about €1m (£850,000) for files from a much smaller Mossack Fonseca leak. They carried out raids on customers of Commerzbank who were suspected of evading tax.

Commerzbank made other news last week when it was hinted that their defunct operation might get merged with another zombie bank, everybody's favorite German Piñata, Deutsche Bank. (See MarketWatch story here.) The idea was shot down, but hey, at least their shares went up briefly.

"BENDING OUR PRINCIPLES"

Truly, the cherry on top of this ridiculous exercise by the Danish tax evasion investigators was their feigned bulldog attack on Denmark's banks. Quoting from that Guardian article again:

The government had already started an investigation into eight Danish banks. A preliminary report said the banks had not done enough to ensure offshore accounts were not used for money laundering or tax evasion. The authorities also asked police to investigate whether Nordea Bank, with 11 million customers, had complied with anti-money laundering directives.

This is a historic moment for Denmark and the first time it has chosen to buy information on suspected tax offenders. Dennis Flydtkjær, an MP with the Danish People’s party and a tax rapporteur, said that he was sceptical about the deal but that “in this case we can be prepared to bend our principles.”

Oh, Denmark, yes try not to hurt yourself from "bending your principles." For now, we'll just assume that you're doing what you've always done: write-off whatever bribes you dish out to your "sources" as just another "cost of doing business." Now that the whistleblower has been paid off, we're certain that will be the end of that. Keep on privatizing those profits and socializing the losses. Everybody pays for himself and we all just keep on keeping on.

“Going Dutch” is a term that indicates that each person participating in a group activity pays for themselves, rather than any person paying for anyone else, particularly in a restaurant bill. It is also called Dutch date, Dutch treat (the oldest form) and “doing Dutch”.

"When I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all." -- the "Kodachrome" song by Paul Simon, 1973


I grew up in a quiet, small, city east of the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County, in Palmdale, California. I'm not quite old enough to remember the assassination of JFK, but do remember the assassination of Brother Bobbie on an early summer's day. I was finishing up my first grade at the elementary school just up the street from our suburbia house. Maybe that was when I became self-aware that something wasn't right. When I saw the events of that day unfolding on our new color TV, I remember a thought passing through my 6.5 year old mind. And silly me assumed that everybody else was also holding this same belief because it seemed so obvious to me:

 

"The President and his brother must have been killed by the same people."


I don't know how a little first-grader was able to come up with that conclusion. That certainly wasn't the sort of idea you would expect to be rumbling around the brain of a little kid. But it kept rumbling in mine and still does, to this day.


The people of my generation passed through the Space Race, the Vietnam War, Watergate, the Disco Era, Yuppies, the World Wide Web, and Irrational Exuberance. Throughout this entire period, a relentless Matrix Machine has been whirring in the background of our lives, unnoticed and largely unchallenged. In fact, that Machine has been whirring for centuries.


I guess it was inevitable that the 6.5 year old kid who once questioned the official doctrine of the Kennedy assassinations would one day swallow her own Red Pill. And so I did, following the 2008 Crash, as I watched the financial lives of my parents and myself collapse into disaster as the equity of our homes evaporated into the dry Arizona air.


I finally came to that moment as have so many readers and contributors of Rogue Money, that day when you finally stop and ask "Why did this happen?" I started reading, researching, listening. Gradually the bricks of The Matrix began to crumble. The monstrous beast was no longer hidden from view. 


And so I join this team of writers and readers who are all trying to Slay the Bankster Beast in their own way. We carry on with confidence because no Evil has ever stood forever against the onslaught of Truth. Undaunted, we move forward.

 
You will find that my contributions to the Rogue Money web site will focus on the deep history that created The Matrix in the first place. In other words, you won't find any opinion forthcoming on this-or-that presidential election ... unless you are talking about the overthrow of regimes 2- or 3- thousand years ago. In that case, I might be interested!


I make no apologies if what you hear steps on the toes of a long-cherished paradigm. I am just A Messenger. In fact, you will find that my blogs will invite your comments to provide additional pieces of information that perhaps you may have gleaned from your own research. I have many holes that need filling.


You've been told what, how, when, and where to think your whole life. I leave it up to you to exercise your own Mind and take appropriate Action to slay the monster for yourself.
