Documents filed with the DoJ show Kelley was paid $90,000 to “convey the views” of the armed group to Congress: https://apnews.com/ce90066b4e20483da79adf21910da0c7

After the retreat from Mosul in 2014 by the Iraqi army, the National Mobilization Force (a.k.a. Popular Mobilization Force) was created. They are mostly Sunni Arab Bedouins.
The 4,000-man strong National Mobilization Force was founded by former Governor Atheel al-Nujaifi, who is controversial in Iraq and seen as a puppet for Turkey. In 2015, he was removed from his post by the Iraqi parliament.
His brother, Osama al-Nujaifi, is Iraq’s former vice president and parliament speaker.

Al-Nujaifi claimed that Baghdad was deaf to the Sunni pleas, and went straight to Washington. In 2014, Nujaifi paid a consultant firm $300,000 for three months of “work”.
In 2015, Hillary Clinton outlined her plan to fight ISIS, and called for the US to “lay the foundation for a second Sunni Awakening”.
In February 2016, Atheel al-Nujaifi signed a six-month, $90,000 contract with lobbyist Robert Kelley to represent the National Mobilization Force.

In the spring of 2015, Nujaifi stated in a speech at the Brookings Institution:
You may ask what is our vision after liberation? We need autonomy as a part of a strong federal Iraq.

Nujaifi and others claim to support a unified Iraq, with a more pronounced federalism. Is this only a vanity project that will split Iraq into pieces?
According to former US ambassador to Iraq and Afghanistan Ryan Crocker “Islamic State is a symptom. It is not a cause”.
Aaron Stein stated “They’re using the anti-ISIS fight as a means with which to strengthen their argument”: http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/ ... n-lobbyist

According to US State Department sources, most of the mercenaries of the National Mobilization Force are former Baathist military officers or policemen who left Mosul when ISIS took over. An elite group of 200 of these (4,000) fighters has been trained by US and Turkish military advisers.
Al-Nujaifi outlined the three needed steps to take Mosul:
First we need to be just outside the city so that we can have physical contact with people.
Second, we need financing.
Third, we need amnesty for the fighters after the fight, which means that if they fight for us, they will not be prosecuted for crimes done before ISIS. Some of them may be wanted for something done in 2003 or 2005.

Strangely Al-Nujaifi claimed that after ISIS (a.k.a. Islamic State and Daesh) took over Mosul with predominately Sunni Arabs, first some 400,000 people left, but then as many as 700,000 new residents moved in to an approximate population of 1.9 million: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/201 ... -plan-to-/
Maybe this mean that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are so disgusted by the Iraqi puppet government, that they rather go to an ISIS-controlled area...

It looks like the George Soros backed Human Rights Watch (HRW) makes propaganda for the Sunni National Mobilization Force.
Since 2014, mostly Shi’a militias have taken over the role of the Iraqi army in the fight against ISIS. By March 2015, they were some 70,000-120,000 fighters strong.
In August 2014, HRW claimed that after Shi’a militias beat back ISIS and took back the Sunni populated city of Amerli, “they burned and destroyed thousands of buildings in dozens of predominately Sunni villages in the Amerli area”: http://natoassociation.ca/the-enemy-of- ... -militias/

Isn’t it strange how since 2009 the predecessor of Drone Aviation Corp was a complete failure in business and suddenly become very successful after they bribed Michael Flynn?
The Lighter Than Air Systems was founded in 2009, and after losing much of its value, was sold in 2013 to World Surveillance Group. Then it was sold to Drone Aviation Corp, all the while having Kevin Hess and Felicia Hess on its board of directors: http://www.nanalyze.com/2015/10/drone-a ... th-a-past/


The White Canvas Group helped Flynn in the consultancy lobbying for Inovo BV.
On 5 December 2016, the Trump campaign paid $200,000 for “data management services” to Colt Ventures, a venture-capital firm that is an investor in VizSense, founded by Dallas investor Darren Blanton. Blanton later served as adviser to Trump’s transition and frequently met Stephen K. Bannon.
According to lawyer Daniel Petalas, who served as the FEC’s acting general counsel and head of enforcement:
A venture-capital company is certainly a strange entity for a campaign to be making an expenditure to, and I would want to look further to assess whether it was it an appropriate recipient.


Social-media company VizSense was started in 2015 by Jon Iadonisi with Tim Newberry as a spin off from their White Canvas consultancy firm.
White Canvas has received numerous Pentagon contracts, including nearly $150,000 in 2016 from the Navy. Iadonisi has been a close associate of Michael Flynn for some time and the Flynn Intel Group rented space from White Canvas Group, and shared an office in Alexandria.
In August 2016, the same month the Inovo contract was signed, Newberry temporarily became chief executive of FIG Cyber, a unit of Flynn Intel Group. White Canvas Group was paid a total of $15,000 on “10/05/2016” and “12/16/2016” for the Inovo assignment. It appears to have been Newberry, chief executive of the White Canvas Group, who did the “Public open source research” (is that just a fancy name for an internet search?): https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... story.html

It includes a list (Item 15) that details the recipients of the money: Bob Kelley, Brian McCauley, Carl Pilgrim, David Enders, Hank Cox, Michael G. Flynn (the son of Lt. General Flynn), Mike Boston, Paul Becker, and Rudi Bakthiar: https://admin.govexec.com/media/2017-03-08_version__(1).pdf

Here’s “Item 15” from the 7 March 2017 document…
Image

You can read amongst others: Brian McCauley received $28,000 for Consultancy, Carl Pilgrim $12,000 for Administrative support, Mike Boston $24,000 for Consultancy, Paul Becker $7,500 for Consultancy.
If these payments were for "campaign" work, Flynn Intel Group could be accused of violating federal campaign laws, since it was from a foreign source…

Paul Becker is a retired Rear Admiral, who now runs Becker T3 Group, an intelligence consulting firm.

Flynn Group also paid Operational Behavioral Sciences (a.k.a. Operational Behavioral Services) with the 2 retired FBI agents Thomas Neer and Gina Orton as executives. Neer was assigned to the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, and Orton was a psychiatrist at the FBI: http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/09/flynn ... overnment/

Brian McCauley is another former FBI agent.
What makes McCauley interesting is that he put the Clinton Benghazi email scandal in the spotlight in October 2016. After McCauley was hired by Flynn, he suddenly went public with the claim that the State Dept pressured him to declassify a Clinton email. The first payment from FIG was made on “10/04/2016”...
In the spring of 2015, McCauley and now-retired State Department official Patrick F. Kennedy reportedly discussed a “quid pro quo arrangement” to declassify a Clinton email. When McCauley learned that the email involved “Secret” information related to the 11 September 2012 Benghazi attacks, he quickly informed Kennedy: “It was off the table; the quid pro quo was not even close to being considered”.

According to the book “Twilight Warriors”, published in 2015, Brian McCauley and Michael Flynn are personal friends. They both served on the board of directors for Brainwave Science: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/19/us/p ... email.html

I didn’t find much interesting on SGR LLC, which received $40,000 (for Public Affairs). If I understand correctly, this was for a couple of emails, 1 phone call, 1 meeting, and a video based on the “ public open source research”, that was never finished...

One of the 3 directors for Flynn Intel Group, Philip Oakley, worked for Quaestor Federal Consulting LLC, a contractor that provides training and advice to military and intelligence operations: https://relationshipscience.com/philip- ... -p77055691

Here is a picture with the executives of the Flynn Intel Group: http://dailycaller.com/wp-content/uploa ... 20x362.png
I had not mentioned Agustin (Gus) M. Tavares Jr. and Mike Coomes yet.

In August 2014, Gus Tavares stepped down as the Defense Intelligence Agency's chief technology officer, 2 weeks after Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was replaced as interim DIA director.
Flynn was asked by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper Jr. to step down in the wake of numerous classified leaks: https://fcw.com/Blogs/FCW-Insider/2014/ ... signs.aspx

In April 2015, Mike Coomes joined CyberUnited as a Senior Vice President of Strategy and Development. CyberUnited provides enterprise IT security consulting services and solutions.
Before joining CyberUnited, Coomes was Director of International Cyber Security and Internet Governance for the US Department of Defense. Coomes had also served as the national Chair for NATO's Information Assurance and Cyber Defense Capability Panel.
The previous named functions were before Coomes became COO for the Flynn Intel Group and Moderator for the US Chamber of Commerce: https://www.uschamber.com/moderator-mike-coomes


Last May, a three-day conference at Trump’s Washington hotel was staged to promote political and economic ties between the USA and Turkey.
The conference was a joint effort by the Washington-based American-Turkish Council and the Istanbul-based Turkey-U.S. Business Council. The latter is part of the same DEIK (TAIK) that’s chaired by the Dutch Turk Ekim Alptekin.
According to Howard Beasey, chief executive officer of the American-Turkish Council, previous conferences have cost about $400,000, with about one-third going to the venue.
Speakers at last year’s conference included Turkish-born developer Mike Sarimsakci (who calls himself the Turkish Trump), who has tried to build Scion-branded hotels with the Trump Organization in St. Louis and Dallas. After public opposition, both projects “collapsed”.

Under the so-called domestic emoluments clause, the president is prohibited from receiving any compensation from federal or state governments other than his $400,000 salary.
Trump has said he won’t keep his salary and that his company will donate any hotel profits from foreign governments to the US Treasury: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... challenges

Nobody could mind that the Trump organization is making lots of money now that Donald will “make America great again”, in the words of Eric Trump: “I think our brand is the hottest it has ever been”.
The Mar-a-Lago, where the members sometimes have access to President Trump, doubled its initial membership fees from $100,000 to $200,000 days after Trump assumed the presidency.

Less than 10 days after Trump won the election, the Trump International Hotel in Washington hosted a gathering for about 100 foreign diplomats and tried to convince them to book rooms there when they stayed in Washington.
Since then, the governments of Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have booked rooms and/or hosted events at Trump’s hotel.

After Donald Trump was inaugurated, he spent 7 of his first 14 weekends at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
President Trump hosted an open-air situation room in Mar-a-Lago when he consulted with Japanese President Shinzo Abe on how to respond to a North Korean missile test launch.
On another Mar-a-Lago weekend, he was visited by Chinese President Xi Jinping, when Trump made the decision to fires 59 Tomahawk missiles at an air base in Syria. The day Ivanka Trump sat next to Xi and his wife at Mar-a-Lago, the Chinese government approved 5 new trademarks for Ivanka’s company.

The limited liability company Milan Investments, with anonymous owners, bought 11 condos at the Trump International Las Vegas, which Trump co-owns, for $3.1 million: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/tru ... 2d086e6d4f

I’m just glad that Donald Trump has convinced us all that he’s above corruption.
No need to verify of course…

This looks to me like Brian McCauley got paid $28,000 (by the Flynn Intel Group with the half million dollar from Inovo BV) to influence the presidential elections.

Benghazi was (or could have been) really damaging to Hillary Clinton...
At 7:19 pm, ET in the early stages of the “terrorist attack” on the US consulate on 11 September 2012, Jeremy Bash sent an email that forces could assist the consulate (after they refused to answer his phone call). The deputies of Secretary of State Clinton simply forgot to approve this option.
A former Special Forces member explained to Bryan Suits in a popular radio show in Los Angeles that the Commanders In extreme Force (CIF) were available to help the consulate.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta lied in 2013 that there hadn’t been enough time to get forces to the scene in Benghazi: http://investmentwatchblog.com/new-emai ... etta-lied/

Clinton was already informed by the DoD on 12 September 2012, that the terrorist attacks were planned 10 days in advance by the terrorist group BCOAR. This shows that Clinton was lying when she told that these attacks were the result of a protest gone wrong against some video: http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room ... n-advance/

According to The Hill, not registering under FARA is a felony, but firms can evade prosecution by belatedly submitting paperwork. In other words it doesn’t matter that Michael Flynn and his gang didn’t disclose their ties to Turkey, because they did so in new, updated FARA filings…
SGR LLC Government Relations and Lobbying, which was paid $40,000 by the Flynn Intel Group of the Inovo BV half a million, contacted Tim Griffin, a former Republican congressman now Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas and Miles Taylor, a staffer on the House Homeland Security Committee.
S.G.R. LLC “helped to submit” the op-ed under Flynn’s name on election day: http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/ ... ped-turkey

Rafiekian met National Security Advisor to the House Committee on Homeland Security, Miles Taylor, twice in October 2016. Once in Taylor’s office and once in FIG’s office (joined by a representative of S.G.R. LLC Government Relations and Lobbying). Taylor also works for the National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
He was schooled at the legendary Oxford University and was the youngest presidential appointee in the George W. Bush Administration: http://www.ned.org/fellows/miles-taylor/

John Timothy Griffin (Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin) later said that SGR LLC contacted him to investigate the ties between the LISA Academy charter schools in Arkansas and the Gulen movement.
Griffin, another lawyer who said he's an advocate of LISA Academy, said that according to Scott Smith there’s no evidence that LISA is connected to Gulen: https://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/a ... t-run-deep

There’s certainly an interesting scandal involving Tim Griffin, who coincidentally lives in Little Rock, Arkansas (and I’m not talking about the 2000 presidential elections).
In September 1999, Griffin became Deputy Research Director for the George W. Bush’s election campaign; he was a legal advisor for the "Bush- Cheney 2000 Florida Recount Team". Maybe they thought something similar would be needed to beat Hillary Clinton?
In 2004, Tim Griffin was working on the re-election of Bush Jr.
On 26 August 2004, Griffin sent a “caging” list to Kelly Porter and Lindy Landreaux. A copy was also sent to GeorgeWBush.org, that’s run by John Wooden, who’s no friend of the Bush family, who informed investigative reporter Greg Palast.
The mail contained 2 “caging.xls” files with typically Hispanic, black and Jewish names.

Voting-rights attorney Bobby Kennedy, who said that Tim Griffin “should be in jail”, explained “caging” like this:
They send out letters to poor black and Hispanic voters, first class, with instructions to return, don’t forward, if the letter is not deliverable. The returned [“caged”] letter is then used as ‘evidence’ the voter’s listed address is fraudulent, and the Republican functionary then gets the name struck from voter rolls, or the absentee ballot, if mailed in, is not counted.


All of the following would have a good reason that a letter wasn’t deliverable, but should be eligible to vote: military personnel sent abroad (registered at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville), homeless people, students away at school, and US voters whose addresses contain typos.
But if GOP functionaries challenge them, their ballots are rejected.

To convince us that there’s a massive amount of voting fraud in the USA, a list of 28 “fraudulent” voters was shown on TV by Justine Fox-Young.
David Iglesias refused to indict a single person for voter fraud, because it were “bogus fraud prosecutions”. Iglesias and 8 other US attorneys were subsequently removed by the White House because they had “been ineffectual managers and prosecutors”.

Griffin resigned in a tearful performance, laid low for a while, and is now the “respected” Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas: http://www.alternet.org/tea-party-and-r ... tion-theft

The trail of Ekim Alptekin, Bijan Rafiekian (a.k.a. Bijan Kian) and Michael Flynn leads to Robert Mueller and Lockheed Martin.

I can still remember that when special prosecutor Robert Mueller was chosen to head the investigation on how Russia is connected to Donald Trump’s team, the state media claimed that this had Donald Trump running scared because Mueller is above corruption…

There is a direct connection between Brian McCauley and Robert Mueller. When Mueller was FBI director, he appointed McCauley as Associate Deputy Director of the NCS for HUMINT.
See the April 2016 press release of Brainwave Science, with the announcement that Brian McCauley is the newest member of the advisory board: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/2 ... ral-Bureau (archived here: http://archive.is/wp9Dz)
As a direct result of his impact in Afghanistan, FBI Director Robert Mueller selected Mr. McCauley to serve as the Associate Deputy Director of the National Clandestine Service (NCS) for Intelligence Community Human Intelligence (HUMINT) Operations. Deputy Assistant Director McCauley was responsible for the executive level management and oversight of HUMINT policies and programs, as well as coordination and de-confliction of United States HUMINT operations worldwide. As a direct result of his collaborative efforts, Mr. McCauley received the Donovan Award, the highest recognition given by the National Clandestine Service. Following this assignment in October 2012, Mr. McCauley was named Deputy Assistant Director of the International Operations Division where he served until his retirement. and the Department of Defense.


Firestarter wrote:Then in the autumn of 2008, Pieper and partners suddenly filed for bankruptcy on behalf of Eclipse Aviation. In January 2009, the bankruptcy court allowed company’s assets to be sold.
Later in 2009, a group of investors, including Ekim Alptekin (who was already involved in Eclipse since January 2008), bought Eclipse Aviation to create the Turkish company EA Aerospace.

In October 2010, Sikorsky Aircraft announced that it would invest in Eclipse Aerospace. The deal was completed by the end of January 2011, with Sikorsky (at the time part of United Technologies) buying an undisclosed equity share in Eclipse.
A subsidiary of Sikorsky in Poland would build the Eclipse airframe, while the firm's sister company Pratt & Whitney supplies the engines. Sikorsky will also offer access to its worldwide support network: https://www.economist.com/blogs/gullive ... /air-taxis

In July 2015, the mammoth Lockheed Martin Corporation bought Sikorsky Aircraft from its parent company United Technologies Corporation (UTC) for $9 billion: http://www.utc.com/News/News-Center/Pag ... craft.aspx

In one of those strange coincidences, in 1984 none other than Rupert Murdoch joined the board of directors of the United Technologies Corporation: http://www.nytimes.com/1984/01/28/busin ... ml?mcubz=0

Another familiar sounding name is Jeffrey L. Kushner, born in 1948 in Wilmington, Delaware, who was a manager for both UTC and Sikorsky: http://prabook.com/web/person-view.html ... eId=839279
I don’t know if Jeffrey is related to Jared…

In the follow up to Watergate the “Lockheed scandal” erupted, which showed that the US weapons industry paid huge amounts of “kickbacks” to politicians all over the word to buy their products. The politicians in fact negotiated higher prices at the cost of the taxpayers…
It doesn’t sound farfetched that a company like Lockheed Martin would pay half a million for $110 billion in sales.

In May, Jared Kushner (Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser), picked up the phone during a meeting with Saudi officials and called the chief executive of Lockheed Martin, Marillyn A. Hewson, over a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia.
Part of the deal was a commitment from Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky’s parent company, to work with the Saudi government. Saudi Arabia would “procure” more than $28 billion worth of Lockheed Martin missile defence, combat ship, tactical aircraft and rotary wing technology.
The program would support more than 450 US jobs and another 450 in Saudi Arabia: http://www.ctpost.com/business/article/ ... 163497.php

Of course no journalist can figure out that something is very wrong when more than $120 million is needed per created job…
President Trump has repeatedly shown support for Sikorksy.

In April, Donald Trump had his personal Sikorksy S-76 helicopter flown to Mar-a-Lago, even though as President he is not allowed to fly in it. A helipad has been built at Mar-a-Lago especially for President Trump...
According to this propaganda piece, Trump had the helicopter showing up when there were many people to admire it, completely by accident: https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2017/0 ... mar-a-lago
See Trump’s Sikorksy “parked” at Mar-a-Lago on 9 April.
Image

On 17 July, the White House arranged a "Made in America" event in which Sikorsky Aircraft was put in the spotlight.
Two Sikorsky executives came to the White House, where the company displayed models of its CH-53K King Stallion heavy-lift helicopter.
The White House let the green-and-white Sikorsky VH-3D helicopter (Marine One) fly to the South Lawn, which cost taxpayers $24,000. The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using government property for political purposes. Because President Trump declared it an “official event” this wasn’t covered by the Hatch Act.
The White House said taxpayers didn’t pay for any of the other props featured at this “official event”: http://time.com/4885934/white-house-helicopter-cost/

On 18 April, President Trump signed the “Buy American” Executive Order. The order is focused on controlling the process under which federal agencies get waivers from the 1933 Buy American Act. This doesn’t mean that buying foreign is prohibited, government agencies can still get waivers, but it does give Donald Trump’s team more control.
Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, a supporter of the “Buy American” Executive Order, claims that the DoD has spent nearly $200 billion on foreign products in the last decade.

According to Jeff Bialos, the US defence industry has bought foreign products for 3 reasons: lower cost, a higher capability, and as trade-offs to encourage sales of US equipment abroad. Bialos expects that because of this Executive Order the costs will rise: https://www.defensenews.com/pentagon/20 ... ply-chain/

What’s also strange - there is no Wikipedia page on Bijan Kian (a.k.a. Rafiekian).

Firestarter wrote:Drone Aviation paid Flynn a $36,000 annual salary and awarded him 100,000 shares of restricted stock. The company later won a $400,000 Defense Department contract.

There is another interesting story that involves Drone Aviation Corporation, which involves Donald Trump Jr. Drone Aviation only became a public company in 2014 when it acquired MacroSolve Inc.

MacroSolve was originally founded in 1997 by David Payne as Anyware Mobile Solutions, which sold software to make a profit. Between 2008 and 2010, sales plunged from $2.7 million to $638,000.
In 2011, MacroSolve signed a 2-year contract with Trump Jr. for a one-time fee of $45,000 and 5 million shares of restricted MacroSolve stock. MacroSolve’s focus suddenly shifted to patent lawsuits as the company's main source of profit - “patent trolling”. MacroSolve owned a single patent issued in October 2010. The patent describes a "remote computing device" that sends out a questionnaire to a user, gets answers, and registers those answers. In MacroSolve's view, it applies to anyone using questionnaires on a mobile app.
In December 2011, it filed more than 10 lawsuits, claiming that global travel companies infringed the '816 patent. It sued: Southwest, United, Continental, American, Priceline, Hotels.com, Travelocity, Hertz, and Avis. In early 2012, MacroSolve filed lawsuits against: Facebook, Walmart, Yelp, Geico, Marriott, AOL, and Inter-Continental Hotels.

According to MacroSolve’s 2013 annual report filed with the SEC, the company “focused on intellectual property licensing and enforcement of our patent in the mobile app market development space”.
In the first few months of filing lawsuits, MacroSolve reaped more than $1 million in settlements. By mid-2012, MacroSolve had sold nearly all that remained of its software service business. Just 3 employees remained, and litigation comprised 97 percent of the company’s revenue.
MacroSolve filed complaints against 101 defendants, all filed in the patent-friendly Eastern District of Texas, and received settlements from 68 of them. The company reported revenue of $1.45 million in 2013. The lawsuits earned the company at least $4.6 million in total.

MacroSolve hit a roadblock around 2014, when patent defendants filed 2 challenges against MacroSolve at the US Patent and Trademark Office. One of the challenges resulted in the cancellation of all MacroSolve patent claims. Following that, the company dismissed its remaining legal cases.
In 2014, MacroSolve's remaining assets were bought by Drone Aviation Holding Corporation. I cannot be the only one to miss the point of why a company that sells drones buys a company that over the last years has only made money with “patent trolling” (and what that such a company could be worth).
According to the annual report, Drone Aviation took in $1.47 million in revenue for 2016. The company recorded a net loss of $8.5 million, or $1.23 a share: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/201 ... -enforcer/

What’s also interesting is that on 28 April 2015, Bijan Rafiekian mailed with none other than Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta: https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/42127

In 2002, Ekim Alptekin was a Senior Fellow for the NGO Humanity In Action (HIA).
In 2003-2004, Ekim Alptekin worked as a counsellor to the Dutch-Turk Fatma Koser Kaya, who was a member of the Dutch Parliament for the D66-party. Koser Kaya chairs HIA in the Netherlands. Fatma Koser Kaya is also an Armenian genocide denier.
Marietje Schaake, who co-founded Inovo BV, is in the Euro Parliament for D66, and together with Alptekin is a member of the George Soros funded European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), which is chaired by Mabel (the widow of Prince Friso of the Netherlands). Schaake also took part in HIA.

Humanity In Action is a partner of Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International that are both funded by George Soros. George Soros’ Open Society Foundations also finances Humanity In Action.
In 2005, George Soros supported the AKP of Recep Tayyip Erdogan with the words:
The AKP is more honest than administrations which preceded it, there is very little corruption. I believe they deserve support.

http://www.hurriyet.com.tr/george-soros ... ort-326041
The following picture shows on the left George Soros and Mabel Wisse Smit, and on the right Erdogan (and Basbakan?), in 2003 in Davos.

Also see the following mail, which shows that co-founders of the Nowruz Commission, Nasser (Kazeminy) and Bijan Kian, expected to meet Minister Ildirim on 21 December 2011, and also arranged a meeting with Ertugal Gurler of Calik Holding: https://www.wikileaks.org/berats-box/emailid/50704

Emails in the Wikileaks archives show that Erdogan’s son-in-law, the current Turkish Minister for Energy Berat Albayrak, was involved with the same Powertrans that got an effective monopoly on importing ISIS-oil because of Turkish laws prohibiting this: https://wikileaks.org/berats-box/article
Albayrak was also the CEO of the Calik Holding from 2007 to 2013.

When I searched the Wikileaks archive with “Bijan Kian Nasser”, I should find the December 2011 mail, but it’s blocked from the Wikileaks search results…
Image


There is no Wikipedia page on Bijan Kian, but I found a list of the companies he worked for.
Kian was schooled at the legendary Oxford University.
Kian was a manager at Great American Savings Bank and is Director of Z Advanced Computing, Inc.
He was also Vice President of Shearson Lehman/American Express: https://www.bloomberg.com/research/stoc ... =253063615

The Shearson Lehman link is interesting.
There is a link between Shearson Lehman and the CEO of Blackstone (that financed the Cadre of Jared Kushner with George Soros), Stephen A. Schwarzman.
Schwarzman is the current chairman of the business advisory council of President Trump.


From 1987 – 1993, when Bijan Kian was Vice President of Shearson Lehman/American Express, one Felix H. Sater worked there as a stock trader.
Felix Sater and his associate Tefvik Arif with their Bayrock Corporation have been partners in crime with the Trump Organization.
In 2007, Bayrock founded the Dutch front KazBay BV, which was in turn owned by the “Dutch” Bayrock BV (of Bayrock Group LLC of Sater, Arif and Trump) and the Swiss Helvetic Capital SA. KazBay was used to launder millions of dollars. It was the Bracewell & Giuliani LLP law firm of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s cybersecurity adviser, which set-up the KazBay construction: https://zembla.bnnvara.nl/data/files/2033471528.pdf

The wife of Viktor Khrapunov was the owner of Helvetic Capital S.A. Former Kazakh minister Khrapunov has been accused by the Kazakh government of embezzlement of hundreds of millions of tax money.
In 2005, Donald Trump owned 18% of Trump SoHo; Bayrock owned the rest of it. In 2013, the Khrapunov family used shell companies to buy 3 apartments in Trump SoHo for $3.1 million.

After it became public knowledge that Felix Sater had been involved in a variety of criminal activity, including money laundering, Donald Trump exploited this situation by demanding more money; see the mail of Sater of 28 January 2008: https://zembla.bnnvara.nl/data/files/3444027513.pdf

The Iceland investment fund FL-Group is a strategic partner of Bayrock. FL was funded by Russian investors close to Vladimir Putin. FL and Bayrock planned to commit tax fraud for $250 million.
The agreement between Bayrock and FL was signed by none other than Donald Trump:

Felix Sater was born in the Soviet Union in 1966, and immigrated with his family to the USA when he was 8 years. At 24 he was a successful Wall Street broker, at 27 he lost his job (at Lehman) after cutting somebody up in a bar, who needed 110 stitches, and at 32 he was accused of conspiring with the Mafia to launder money.

In 1993, after being locked up in prison for the “bar fight”, Sater, Gennady “Gene” Klotsman, Salvatore Lauria and partners gained control of White Rock Partners (later named State Street Capital Markets). They would gain control of large blocks of stock in 4 companies through offshore accounts. Through an illegal “pump and dump” scheme, they would inflate the value of the shares through under-the-table payoffs to brokers and swindled investors out of $40 million.
Sater was also involved in a plan to buy antiaircraft missiles on the black market in either Russia or Afghanistan for the CIA.

Since 2003, Sater and Arif - Bayrock – are co-conspirators with Donald Trump.
Trump and Sater have been repeatedly seen together. Sater even had a business card of the Trump Organization in which he’s labelled “senior advisor to Donald Trump”: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/17/nyregion/17trump.html

In 2007, Donald Trump celebrated the launch of Trump SoHo with partners Tevfik Arif (centre) and Felix Sater (right).
Image

Trump said that most of his dealings with Bayrock had been with Tevfik Arif.
Tefvik Arif was born in Kazakhstan, but is now a Turkish citizen. The Arif family controls Doyen. Doyen Sports employs international superstars like David Beckham, Usain Bolt and Neymar.
Refik Arif, Tefviks brother, partnered with Sitki Ayan in a deal involving a gas pipeline from Iran to Europe. Part of the pipeline would go through Turkmenistan, in which Calik Holding was involved, where Erdogan’s son-in-law Berat Albayrak was CEO until 2013. Sitki Ayan is a childhood friend of President Erdogan, and is so close that he calls the president by his first name in public and occasionally joins him on official trips abroad.
The gas was paid for in gold to circumvent that Iran was blocked by international sanctions, with over ten billion dollars in revenue. President Erdogan and his son Bilal were caught on tape in conversations in which they appeared to discuss the bribes to be received with Sitki Ayan.

In 2012, Ali Demirhan, stalwart of President Erdogan's AKP Party, became Doyen's new legal advisor. Demirhan is described as a “close friend and partner” of the Arifs.
Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, ex- wife of Prince “Randy Andy” Andrew became embroiled in a scandal involving children. The Turkish Ministry of Justice even issued an international arrest warrant. Ferguson turned for help to her Turkish friends in London, Arif “Arif” Efendi, son of Tevfik Arif, and Demirhan. Doyen drafted an apology letter addressed to Erdogan explaining the misunderstanding. The charges against Ferguson were subsequently dropped: https://theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88 ... Type=story

There are a lot of stories on the internet about Felix Sater, which portray Tevfik “Skip” Arif (born Tofic Arifov) as some sort of bit player. It looks like Arif is too big for jail, and effectively above the law, while Sater is nothing more than a gopher for the big shots.
There are some stories in French about the money laundering Doyen Group, and in Turkish about the Arif family, but by far the best (or only) site in English I’ve found on Arif himself is the Blacksea site.
This post is about the child trafficking charges against Tevfik Arif. I’ll also present some information on another paedophile sex ring to which Donald Trump was connected, Jeffrey Epstein, and the involvement of Robert Mueller in the “Franklin cover-up”...

First some more on the child trafficking charges against Tevfik Arif in Turkey in 2010 (Arif has been a resident of New York City since the 1990s).
On 28 September 2010, Arif was arrested by the Turkish police for running a prostitution ring onboard a luxury yacht. The 9 young women between 18 and 23 from Russia on board were suspected of being prostitutes.
The yacht had been rented by the Kazakh-based billionaire and Belgian citizen Alexander Mashkevitch, the president of metal and mining Eurasian National Resources Corporation (ENRC) and a member of the World Jewish Congress. Mashkevitch was also a strategic partner with Bayrock, and a friend of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
Among the other guests on board were Mashkevitch’s colleagues at ENRC, Patokh Chodiev and Alijan Ibragimov (together called the “Kazakh trio”, although they’re not Kazakhs). It was also reported that Telman Ismailov, a Kazakh-American businessman and senior aide to the Kazakh prime minister, was on board.

The Turkish newspaper Vatan, reported that Kanat Saudabayev, secretary of state in Kazakhstan, was also on the yacht, which was quickly denied. Saudabayev has been a friend of Kazakh President Nazarbayev since 1968, and is a former Ambassador to Turkey, the UK and the USA. Saudabayev was a close associate of Mashkevitch, and according to Wikileaks cables had used Mashkevitch's homes in Almaty and Astana, Kazakhstan, to host visiting American dignitaries.

A former employee of Alexander Mashkevitch said that:
Mashkevitch and Bazhaev were sometimes talking everyday to each other. (…)
Chodiev and Ibragimov don't like to work with him, but Mashkevitch is still in business with him.

Bazhaev is close to none other than Vladimir Putin. Last year he was entertained at the Kremlin, where he presented a $46 million project for a sports and music centre in Bethlehem in the Occupied Territories. Putin spoke the following words to Bazhaev at this occasion:
I congratulate you on this project. I think that people in Palestine will enjoy it and remember those who actually carried out the project.

See Musa Bazhaev and Putin.
Image

Tevfik Arif was charged with trafficking girls as young as 15 for sex from modelling agencies in Russia, which he denied.
In early 2010, the police was informed that Musa Celik and Gunduz Akdeniz were involved in providing underage prostitutes to rich clients. Gunduz was called “The Uncle”, Tevfik was “The Boss, and the girls were called “models”.
The Uncle” would call Celik to supply teenagers from Russia (particularly, girls of 16 and younger).
On 20 February 2010, Musa Celik asks Olga via SMS for women from Eastern Europe. Olga asks “Do you want all models for sex?”, to which Celik replies “Olga, client wants sex”.

On 4 March 2010, Akdeniz asks Celik about a girl called Vasilisa “the one who is 15” and asks if her friends will also come to Turkey. The next day, Akdeniz tells him that “The Boss, demands more photos of better looking girls”.
On 12 March, Akdeniz tells Celik that the price is raised from $1,000 to $1,500 for girls of 16 or younger.
On 15 March, the cops stop a black 2005 Mercedes Vito on the suburbs of Belek. Tevfik Arif’s driver, Kemal Tokay, is transporting foreign girls, including the 15 year-old Vasilisa and 16 year-old German Stefania. Vasilisa and her friend later released a statement that they were not prostitutes.
On 16 March, at the Rixos Premium Hotel the girls walk through the corridors without checking in. The receptionist demands information; Celik answers they are guests of Gunduz. During this time, Tevfik Arif stays at the hotel.

After Gunduz informs Arif that he’s being watched by the police, they only hire and transport women over 18, which is still human trafficking according to Turkish law.
In the trial, Tevfik and his gang are charged with trafficking girls under 18 to Turkey for prostitution. Tevfik and Akdeniz deny all accusations, but Celik admits:
In March of 2010 I brought in very young girls. They were 16 or 17. I brought them in at Tevfik Arif’s request. To be precise, Gunduz Akdeniz phoned me with that request.

On 11 April 2011, the court acquits Tevfik Arif, but Musa Celik, Gunduz Akdeniz and 2 others, are sentenced to 2 years in prison for “mediation in prostitution, finding a place and inducing to prostitution”: https://theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88 ... Type=story
(archived here: http://archive.is/QLNLU)

This is the third time that I hear about a close associate of Donald Trump that sexually abused underage girls (besides Tevfik Arif, John Casablancas and Jeffrey Epstein).
Jeffrey Epstein was a friend of both Donald Trump and the Clintons, and a member of the Mar-a-Lago, where he and Ghislaine Maxwell even recruited the underage Virginia Robert for their paedophile sex ring.
After a yearlong investigation that started in 2005, 20 girls testified they were sexually abused between the ages of 14 and 17 by Jeffrey Epstein. Jeffrey Epstein made a deal, and only served 13 months in “prison” (6 nights a week and every Sunday). Part of the deal was that his powerful “friends”, including Prince Andrew that was even flown to visit Epstein in Donald Trump’s private jet, that abused children, got off the hook.
The sweet deal was made with Alex Acosta (these days Trump’s Secretary of Labour): viewtopic.php?f=7&t=713&start=140#p3738

The following picture shows Nat Rothschild, the son of Baron Jacob Rothschild who dated Ivanka Trump before she got engaged with Jared Kushner, Nefer Suvio, Nick Rhodes and Ghislaine Maxwell at The Royal Albert Hall in July 2013.

I had already learned that Robert Mueller is connected to the same Brian McCauley, who received $28,000 for “Consultancy” of the Inovo BV half a million paid to the Flynn Intel Group, but recently I’ve learned that Mueller has also been involved in the “Franklin cover-up”.
In the 1980s a huge amount of children were sexually abused by a group that went all the way to Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr. Larry King (not the TV-host) was used for a scapegoat: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=713&start=70

Here’s the report compiled by the late FBI-agent Ted L. Gunderson, who sent letters to law enforcement agencies, knowing in advance that the scandal would be covered up: http://media1.7x.cz/files/media1:50fec0 ... Report.pdf

Here’s Robert Mueller’s reply to the 11 March 1992 letter by Gunderson, with the conclusion that there is “no evidence of misconduct by FBI personnel that would justify your charge of obstruction of justice”.

Here’s some more on Tevfik Arif (based on a long story from the Blacksea site)...
Tevfik Arif (Tofic Arifov) moved to Turkey in 1993, and shortly after emigrated to the US with wife and children.

Musa Bazhaev, head of Alliance Group in Russia, was also on the Savarona boat with the prostitutes in September 2010…
Bazhaev inherited Alliance Group in 2000, after the death of his brother Zia (son-in-law of Nazarbayev). Bazhaev tried to get Mashkevich to join a possible oil deal between Alliance Group and CapFox Congo, owned by Khulubuse Zuma, nephew of Jacob Zuma (the South African president).
See from left to right: Bazhaev, Alexander Mashkevich, and Tevfik Arif: http://theblacksea.eu/RES/uploads/image ... C_9336.JPG

Patokh Chodiev has said that the “Kazakh trio” (Chodiev, Mashkevich and Alijan Ibragimov) first met the London based billionaires, David and Simon Reuben, in the spring of 1992.
Tevfik was recruited by the Trans World Group because of his good connections in Kazakhstan. Tevfik’s younger brother, Refik Arif, was senior manager at the Kazakh Ministry of Industry from 1991 to 1999.
Trans World was started around 1991 by the Reubens and Uzbekistan-born Israeli oligarchs, Lev and Michael Cherney. It was the successor to Trans Commodities, an import/export business of the Ukrainian Semyon “Sam” Kislin, who employed the Cherneys in the late 1980s.

Sam Kislin, who emigrated from the Soviet Union to the USA in the early 1970s, is part of the Solntsevskaya Russian (Yaponchik) mafia group based in New York of Vyacheslav Ivankov (according to FBI reports). Ivankov, who once owned a condo in Trump Tower, was the right hand man of Semion Mogilevich, who was considered one of the most powerful crime bosses in the Soviet Union. Ivankov was assassinated in Moscow in 2009.
The “Kazakh trio” and the Reubens set up a network of offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands (BVI), including KazChrome. It is alleged that the Reubens and Cherneys hired contract killers to murder their competition in the aluminium sector.

I can remember the Reuben brothers, who own the Millbank tower, from where the video of the see-through car that reportedly smashed pedestrians on Westminster Bridge on 22 March was made.
Millbank tower is home to the Henry Jackson Society (think tank), whose members include MP’s, former heads of British intelligence agencies, CFR, Homeland security, Israel, NATO, and former CIA-director James Woolsey...
The Reuben brothers have contributed to a campaign of Boris Johnson (who was in the Bullingdon club with Nat Rothschild and David Cameron).

Rixos owns 20 hotels across the world, mostly in Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Russia and UAE, with an annual revenue of around half a billion euro. Sembol is one of Turkey’s leading construction companies; its turnover is estimated at nearly $1.5 billion, mostly through public contracts in Kazakhstan, and also building 4 Rixos hotels. Secret documents disclosed by Football Leaks show that by a hidden arrangement Tevfik Arif owns a majority share in Rixos and Sembol.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) decrees that a new committee will decide on investments, which includes Tevfik, Fettah Tamince, Mutlu Simayli, and Eugene Jaffe of Salford Capital Partners. Salford is a London based investment firm that was reputedly owned by the deceased oligarchs Badri Patarkatsishvili (from Georgia) and Boris Berezovsky (from Russia). In 2010 and 2011, the Arifs provided Berezovsky – under his alias “Platon Elenin” - with 2 unsecured loans totalling 6.5 million GBP (around 8 million Euros).
In the mid-2000s, Felix Sater became a senior advisor to Rixos and Sembol, a position he still holds.
On the Rixos board is the Ukrainian Igor Gumenyuk, an associate of Rinat Akhmetov, owner of the Shaktar Donetsk soccer team.

Bayrock Capital was housed in the Trump Towers in New York. Tevfik appointed Burak Yeneroglu as president of Bayrock. Yeneroglu lives in a mansion opposite Tevfik in Miami. Yeneroglu raised $652,000 for Obama's re-election campaign.
The Sapir Organization, owned by Georgian property developer Sapir Tamir, partnered with Bayrock. Sapir and Sam Kislin were guests at the weddings of Tevfik’s children - along with the Kazakh trio, Musa Bazhaev, the Reuben brothers, Telman Ismailov, and Leonid Bilunov (reportedly a Russian mobster operating from Monaco).

In March 2012, Ali Demirhan introduced Doyen Capital's vice president, Tevfik Eren to Sadik Albayrak (father of Berat Albayrak) Murat Ulgen (CEO of Besiktas), and Ali Agaoglu (a real estate magnate close to Erdogan). Agaoglu has been accused of bribing Bilal Erdogan, by donating millions to his education foundation Turgev.

There was also an obvious fraud involving Doyen Natural Resources (DNR) based in Panama, Efendi Arif's Lomisa Trust and Kamelot Enerji (Doyen’s Turkish coal company) – all 3 Arif companies.
DNR bought coal for around $180 per tonne, and then traded it to Kamelot for ten dollars more. Kamelot’s financial records for 2014 and 2015 show millions in losses, while continuing to buy and sell coal. DNR's Credit Suisse statements show millions being paid into the family’s trusts, including the Carlyle Trust, based in the BVI that owns the London mansion.
The profits should have been taxed in Britain or Turkey, but DNR was quickly liquidated, when the money had disappeared.
In 2012, Gubre Gida Kimya (GGK, also part of the Doyen Group) purchased Kamelot Enerji for $12.1 million: https://theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88 ... Type=story
(archived here: http://archive.fo/nzDL3)


Starting in August 2014, DNR began gifting money to Lomisa. A letter shows that DNR “gifted an additional amount of USD $41,100,000.00 (forty one million one hundred thousand US dollars)” to Lomisa Trust, which brings "the total amount gifted to the Trust to $46.100.000.00”.
The mentioned Eristavi Limited is a Guernsey-based company owned by the Lomisa Trust.

Real estate is of course used to launder money, but professional team sports – like soccer – can do this much faster.
This can be done especially fast when transfer prices for players are inflated. At this moment even millions of Euros are paid for “average” players.

In 2008, the hedge fund Doyen Group of the Arif family began “investing” in professional football. Doyen Sports Investments Limited, of the Doyen Group, is very active in financing Third-Party Ownership (TPO) of contracts for soccer players.
Nélio Freire Lucas founded Doyen Sports in 2011, and describes this process as "Third Party Investment". As opposed to TPO, which has recently been banned by the FIFA.
From 2011 to 2016, Doyen invested €170 million in association football.
Doyen Sports lends money to professional football clubs for transfers. The club has 3 years to repay its debt, if they can’t they are forced to resell the players. Doyen gets a percentage of the transfer. In this way Doyen (and affiliated funds and club owners) can keep on inflating the prices indefinitely (controlling both the selling and the buying club)…

Doyen Group's financial division, Doyen Capital LLP, is based in London. Doyen Capital has the same address as Doyen Group and is headed by Nélio Lucas, Simon Oliveira, and Matthew Kay.
Doyen Capital LLP is the origin of funding for Doyen Sports and Doyen Sports Investments Limited, which has 4 shareholders: Malik Ali; Claudio Tonolla (Swiss investor, residing in Malta); Nelio Lucas and Ali Lüftü Ethem Kadirgan.
The main investors of the Doyen Group remain anonymous, except for three people:
- Fettah Tamince, a relative of Turkish President Erdogan, who owns Star Media Group and the hotel chain Rixos (together with Tevfik Arif);
- Erick Thohir, an Indonesian billionaire who bought Inter Milan;
- Tevfik Arif.

Nélio Lucas owns 20% of the Doyen Group subsidiary Doyen Natural Resources through shell corporations in tax havens.
The nucleus of shareholders at Doyen Group are, Tevfik Arif and 3 of his sons: Refik (Doyen Capital LLP and Doyen Global Limited); Efendi (Doyen Capital Services Limited) and Kemal (Doyen Capital).
Benington Group Assets also holds 80% of the shares of Doyen Sports Investments Limited.

Doyen Sports reportedly paid €10.8 million in secret commissions for the transfer of various players (including the French Kondogbia and Mangala and the Colombian Radamel Falcao), using shell companies. According to Football Leaks, the companies Rixos, Denos and PMCI, are used: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doyen_Group
(archived here: http://archive.fo/LVvLV)


The Blacksea site (again) has an interesting story on the transfer of Kondogbia.
Sevilla only wished to sell the Frenchman for 20 million Euros, and Fifa rules prohibit investment funds from influencing transfers.
In August 2013, Nelio Lucas arranged a party in Miami, involving prostitutes, to convince Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, to buy Kondogbia for 20 million Euros. The location was the Arif residence on Fisher Island, a short distance from Miami Beach.
The transfer to Real didn’t work out, and it was Monaco that paid the 20 million for Kondogbia.
Lucas texted to Arif “Great deal for us”, Arif replied: “Congrats bro!!!!!!!”.

The transfer gave Doyen Sport a net profit of 7.8 million Euros, a return of 524% on its initial “investment” in only one year (that’s money laundering the fast way…).
One year after the transfers, Lucas used the Denos limited shell company, registered in Ras al-Khaimah (part of the United Arab Emirates). On 17 July 2014, Doyen Sports paid 1.3 million Euro to Denos, 785,865 Euro for the transfer of Kondogbia and 533,190 Euro for Falcao. The Football Leaks documents don’t reveal to whom the money ultimately went.

In December 2014, Italian football agent Gianluca Fiorini filed a complaint, in which he accused Doyen Sports of committing “grave abuse” in Kondogbia’s transfer to Monaco because it controlled both the player’s agent and the agent for then Monaco manager Claudio Ranieri.
Fiorini said Spanish agent Juan Manuel Lopez (who was Kondogbia’s agent) had “invested” in Doyen Sports, just like his Italian colleague Giuseppe Bozzo, who was Ranieri’s agent. Lopez is one of Nelio Lucas’s professional collaborators, and Bozzo has been appointed by Nelio Lucas as the exclusive representative for Doyen Sports in Italy.
Fifa also suspected that a secret payment of 500,000 Euro was made during Kondogbia’s transfer from French club Lens to Sevilla in 2012.
At the beginning of 2016, the Fifa sentenced Sevilla to a formal warning and a fine of 55,000 Swiss francs. Sevilla appealed the sentence: https://theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88 ... Type=story

The stories that I found so far from the Blacksea site were interesting; but I have found even better stuff (maybe in a next post...). For anybody that wants to check it out for themselves, better be quick, it could disappear without a trace: https://theblacksea.eu/?idT=88&idC=88

Today I walked into a bookstore, searching for something interesting.
A 400 page biography about Donald Trump caught my eye, written by the award winning Marc Fisher and Michael Kranish of The Washington Post.
In this relatively thick book, nothing is mentioned about Tofik Arifov (a.k.a. Tevfik Arif). The Bayrock Group is mentioned on a single page in the book. It mentions that Felix Sater had been in jail, and that Trump has denied remembering Sater, and that’s about the whole story. That’s the state of journalism in 2017…

Since 2013, The Washington Post is owned by one of the richest men in the world, Jeff Bezos, who is best known as the founder, CEO and biggest shareholder of Amazon.com.
An interesting fact is that Amazon made a $600 million deal with the CIA: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/18/busin ... bezos.html
After Hillary Clinton lost the Presidential election, John Podesta joined The Washington Post as a columnist….

For some reason the “independent” Wikipedia has deleted interesting information…
I think that this is the most interesting of the archived versions of this page, with quoted below the part that has been deleted: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =768855025
Investors
According to Bloomberg News as of 2015, the main investors of the Doyen Group remained anonymous, except for three people:
• Fettah Tamince, a relative of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan; runs and owns the Turkish hotel chain Rixos and Star Media Group;
• Tevfik Arif, Turkish Kazakh owner of the Bayrock Group,[15][16] a New York-based real estate developer and partner of Fettah Tamince and Donald Trump.[17]
• Erick Thohir, an Indonesian billionaire who bought Inter Milan

Four members of the Arif family form the nucleus of shareholders at Doyen Group: Tevfik Arif and three of his sons: Refik (Doyen Capital LLP and Doyen Global Limited); Efendi (Doyen Capital Services Limited) and Kemal (Doyen Capital; 2011–2013);[1]

The Arif family made a fortune through the privatization of a chemical plant in Kazakhstan during the collapse of the USSR before financing the investment fund "Doyen Sports" to the tune of €75 million and hiding this money in dozens of offshore companies in "tax havens such as Panama, Isle of Man, the Netherlands, Malta or the British Virgin Islands".[6] The Doyen Group has always kept the source of its funds secret; According to the newspaper L'Équipe (based on information from the "Football Leaks"), this could be motivated by "fiscal reasons" but also by the origin of the family fortune of the "Arif clan" built from the ruins of the former USSR by "appropriating mines and factories at low prices, with the support of corrupt politicians and organized crime (...) protectors apparently so dangerous that they can ruin The Arif family with a finger snap." It is this sulphurous silver (€300 million siphoned in a Kazakh chemical factory) that financed Doyen Sports. €75 million paid by Refik Arif, which affects interest but does not appear anywhere, hidden behind an offshore shell driven by a nominee, a nephew Arif"[6] who specifies that Bloomberg had identified in 2013 one of the shareholders of the Doyen group, Turkish naturalized Kazakh businessman Tevfik Arif.



Following is an official document by the Turkish prosecutor on the human trafficking case against Tevfik Arif and his gang of paedophiles: https://theblacksea.eu/RES/uploads/file ... cs_ocr.pdf
The most important addition to what is already in this thread about the prostitute scandal (including sexual abuse of underage girls), is that at least one 16-year-old flew to Miami to satisfy the sexual pleasures of some dirty old men:
Erkan Akdeniz: but, as far as I know, the 16 years old girl went to Miami, apparently, it was earlier, no, it's not important, forget it
(…)
Erkan Akdeniz: 16 years old already were, she is already 17, and she went to America 4-5 times
(…)
Erkan Akdeniz: the 16-year-olds went to Miami earlier, as far as I know, but OK, it doesn't matter, I'm not going to mix anything up



In this thread is information on the “business” connections between the Trump Organization, and the elite of Russia, Turkey and Kazakhstan, going all the way to the top – President Putin, President Erdogan, President Nazarbayev, the Dutch Royal family and George Soros.
For a fuller picture, look at the following site with some connections between Putin’s Russia, Roman Abramovich, Queen Elizabeth and Rothschild: http://www.dzig.de/sites/default/files/ ... feller.htm
(archived here: http://archive.li/BVRgq)


Now to the main topic for this post – Chabad, an international Hasidic movement with ties to both Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
The Chabad-Lubavitch movement was founded in Lithuania in 1775; its total number of members these days is estimated at 10,000 to 100,000.
Roman Abramovich was reportedly the first person to recommend to Yeltsin to choose Putin as his successor.
In 1999, Putin enlisted the oligarchs Lev Leviev and Roman Abramovich, to create the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar. Leviev and Abramovich would become Chabad’s biggest patrons worldwide.

In December 2007, Trump hosted the wedding of Sapir’s daughter, Zina, and Leviev’s right-hand man, Rosen, at Mar-a-Lago. A few months later, Leviev met Trump to discuss potential deals in Moscow. Trump has called Sapir “a great friend”.
In June 2008, Zina Sapir and Rosen held a bris for their newborn son. Trump and Jared Kushner attended the bris.

Kushner married Ivanka Trump and in 2015 bought the old New York Times building on West 43rd Street from Leviev for $295 million.
Ivanka and Jared also formed a close relationship with Abramovich’s wife, Dasha Zhukova.
Ivanka and Jared, attend the worshipping ceremonies at a Chabad synagogue in Washington.

Bayrock-Sapir, (then) led by Soviet émigrés Tevfik Arif, Felix Sater and Tamir Sapir, are all 3 connected to Chabad.
Sater and another Bayrock employee, Daniel Ridloff, who at one time both worked for the Trump Organization, belong to the Port Washington Chabad house. Sater told POLITICO that he sits on the boards of numerous Chabad entities in the US and abroad.
In 2014, the Port Washington Chabad house named Sater its “man of the year”. At the ceremony honouring Sater, the Chabad’s founder, Shalom Paltiel, told that he once received special clearance to accompany Sater in a ceremony at the federal building in Manhattan. There several intelligence agents applauded Sater’s secret work and told him: “stuff that was more fantastic, and more unbelievable, than anything he [Sater] had been telling me”.

Paltiel is also close to “Putin’s rabbi” Lazar, calling Lazar “my dear friend and mentor”.
I have to admit that some of the stuff surrounding Trump, is almost too fantastic for me to believe…

According to the Times, in late January of this year, Sater met Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to discuss a Ukraine peace deal to end US sanctions on Russia. Cohen then delivered this to Michael Flynn at the White House. Cohen himself is a regular presence at the Midtown Chabad on Fifth Avenue: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/ ... tin-215007

Dasha Zhukova showed Ivanka and Jared Kushner around in Russia in 2014 and even attended Trump’s inauguration as their guest in January.
Zhukova is also a friend and business partner of Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife Wendi Deng, one of Ivanka’s closest friends, and a friend of Karlie Kloss, the long-time girlfriend of Jared’s brother, Josh Kushner.
In 2016, Jared and Ivanka Kushner shared a box at the US Open with amongst others Zhukova and Deng: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -Open.html
