$90 Billion Dollars a Year?

The crime of medicare fraud is bigger than the drug business in total volume.

A billion dollar business

Mexico’s drug cartels earn billions of dollars in profits as they funnel heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana into drug-hungry countries, including the United States. Crime, death and ruined lives flow right along with those drugs to places as varied as New York City, West Virginia coal country, Albuquerque, Española and western Europe. Despite the efforts of law enforcement, the cartels rival international corporations in size and reach. The drugs they peddle are cheaper and more plentiful than ever before, claiming thousands of victims every year. Cartels Nextdoor is the Albuquerque Journal's six-part investigative report on a criminal enterprise wreaking havoc across the country. Video shot and edited by Nicole Perez and produced by Robert Browman. Visit to read more in the series.

Jho Low plan to be rich and famous in Billion Dollar Whale EP1

Billion Dollar Whale Episode 1
His Plan to be rich and famous

At his young age, Jho Low was a very unpopular young man who desired to be famous. He made it as of today and now he is a world famous 1MDB criminal also known as Billion Dollar Whale.

Jho Low went back to a boy school but this time in an elite boarding school, Harrow, in London, where his classmates counted their families’ wealth in billions, not millions. One of his schoolmate was Riza Aziz, stepson of corrupt Najib Razak.

Bluffing that he was a “prince of Malaysia,” from a noble family, not a garment family that later he became a laughing stock of Penang.

Having a good connection with the Malaysia’s ruling party, the United Malays National Organization, was very important when comes to do business in Malaysia. The ruling government could grant everything from gambling licenses to infrastructure contracts for people like Jho Low to prosper themselves corruptly. Thus, it had given Jho Low an opportunity by getting close with Riza to scam the fund from 1MDB, the same way his father did on MWE company.

Wall Street Bankers Have Made $2.5 BILLION From Trump’s Tax Scam

According to a new analysis by The Wall Street Journal, the biggest banks on Wall Street have already seen a benefit totaling about $2.5 billion from the Trump/Republican tax cuts. That’s $2.5 billion back in the pockets of the greediest people in this country. Meanwhile, American workers are reporting little to no savings or benefits from the tax cut package, which was completely expected and predictable. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

According to a new analysis by The Wall Street Journal, the top Wall Street banks in the United States in the first three months of this year have collected a combined $2.5 billion from the Donald Trump Republican Party GOP tax scam. $2.5 billion for just a couple banks, 100% from the Republican tax scam. Those banks are Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo. All four of them together sharing $2.5 billion in tax breaks from the Republican Party, but don't worry, it's not just the Republicans who are helping out the big banks. Right now there is currently a deregulation bill making its way through the House and Senate that has plenty of Democratic support that is going to only further increase the profits of those major banks, and make it all the more likely that they're going to get involved in risky behavior that's going to lead us to a brand new economic crash at some point in the very near future.

Also, according to the report from The Wall Street Journal, workers aren't getting a damn thing. Only 13% of American workers have gotten any kind of raise, bonus, or other incentive since these Republican tax cuts were put in place, and most of those are the people who've reported getting that one-time bonus from their employer. When you're talking about just four banks that have made $2.5 billion between the four of them, those thousand-dollar bonuses to maybe 100 workers, they start to look like crumbs, don't they? Just like Nancy Pelosi told us, because in reality, that is crumbs. If your employer gets $750 million in tax cuts in just three months but you get a thousand dollars before taxes once, wouldn't that be a crumb off of what these other folks are getting?

The American public is not going to get these tax cuts. We're not going to get the money from it. We never do. We never have. History has shown us that, and anyone who believed it would happen is an absolute idiot who needs to go back and study the history of trickle-down economics. Everybody was warned, and that's probably why a majority of the American public still thinks these tax cuts were a bad idea, but nonetheless on tax day this week, you had Donald Trump out there, you had Paul Ryan out there both on Twitter telling us that American workers across the country were getting raises. They were doing so much better. They were seeing so much more money in every single paycheck of theirs. There was no truth to that statement.

However, and this is how the con works, the people who see those tweets, who support Ryan or Trump, they believe it. They understand that they can look at their paycheck and not see an increase, but they assume, because the president is saying it, that there must be plenty of other people who are getting the raise, so good for them. I'm going to be happy for them. Yeah, I didn't get it, but obviously, according to Trump, my neighbor did, never once bothering to check with that person and say, Hey, did you get a raise or a bonus, just curious?

No, they didn't. Neither did your other neighbor on the other side, or the person that lives behind you, or the family down the street, or the people in your workplace, because it's not going to happen. That was never the goal of these tax cuts. The goal of the tax cuts was to give as much money as possible, 1.5 trillion to big banks, to corporate CEOS, and to the already wealthy elite. It was a subsidy for people who are already rich.

How does money laundering work? - Delena D. Spann

View full lesson:

Money laundering is the term for any process that “cleans” illegally obtained funds of their “dirty” criminal origins, allowing them to be used within the legal economy. And the practice is about as old as money itself. But how does it actually work? Delena D. Spann describes the ins and outs of money laundering.

Lesson by Delena D. Spann, animation by Juan M. Urbina.

How much was Pablo Escobar really worth?

If somebody were to ask you who the richest criminal of all time was, you would probably say that it was Pablo Escobar. And you would definitely be right in saying that.

But you may not know exactly just how absurdly rich the man actually was.
At the height of Escobar's power and adjusted for inflation in 2012, he had an estimated net worth of 30 billion US dollars.

Now, $30 billion is a very big number, so let's look at this from a different angle.

In 1989, Pablo Escobar was estimated by Forbes to be the seventh richest person in the world.

If he were alive today and making the same amount of money, he would be placed 18th on that list.

The engine that provided him with his immense wealth was his Medellin cartel, a ruthless drug organization so large that it could be placed on the Fortune 500.

For a time, the cartel basically owned an entire island in the Bahamas, that they used as a refueling point for their planes smuggling cocaine from Colombia.

The island had a 1 kilometer long airstrip where they would land their large planes, transfer the cocaine on to smaller planes, and from there land on remote dirt roads in the south of Florida, where the cocaine would then hit the streets of the United States.

The cartel was making five to seven of these flights every day in their heyday, and even had a fleet of two submarines.

Altogether about 15 tons of cocaine was being smuggled by the cartel into the United States per day.

So this raises an important question: How much was Pablo Escobar really worth?

So here are some outrageous facts about pablo escobar’s absurd wealth!

His Cartel Supplied 80 Percent Of the Cocaine In The US.

The demand for cocaine in the US had surpassed the demand for coffee, as the cartel was smuggling more than 15 tons of cocaine into the US per day.

By the late 1980s, they had an enormous fleet which included 142 planes, 20 helicopters, 32 yachts, and 141 homes and offices.

At the top of his game, four out of every five lines of cocaine snorted in the United States
were supplied by Pablo Escobar and his cartel.

They Spent $2,500 A Month On Rubber Bands To Hold The Money.

In the 1980s, Escobar’s cartel was bringing home an estimated 420 million dollars a week, totaling around $22 billion a year.

That was a lot of money to account for, which was left to his brother, Roberto Escobar.

According to Roberto, the cartel spent around $2,500 a month on rubber bands, just to hold the stacks of cash together.

He Was On Forbes ‘s Rich List Seven Years In A Row.

In 1987, Forbes magazine published their first issue listing 100 of the world’s richest billionaires, including Pablo Escobar.

With Escobar’s 40-percent stake in the cartel, Forbes estimated Escobar’s net worth in 1987 to be more than 2 billion dollars.

He Paid His Pilots $500,000 For One Trip.

When you have 15 tons of cocaine to smuggle a day, (roughly around the same weight as two African elephants), it can be a logistical nightmare.

But Working for Escobar would ensure an impressive payday. Pilots flying to the US would have their plane tires loaded with cocaine, and one trip could earn them up to 500,000 dollars.

He Once Set Fire To $2 Million To Keep His Daughter Warm.

According to his son Sebastian Marroquin, when they were living in a hideout in the Medellin mountainsides, his younger sister Manuela developed hypothermia.

One morning, when she was really sick, Escobar took two sacks containing $2 million and made a bonfire with it to keep her warm and well.

But all of this wealth couldn't possibly last forever. Escobar's cartel was responsible for an estimated 3,500 murders, 500 of whom were police officers in the city of Medellin.

Escobar himself was gunned down in a hail of bullets on the 2nd of December in 1993, and his cartel and wealth largely died with him.

While Pablo Escobar's fortune made him an influential man in life, his legacy has left a lasting influence on our pop culture and TV shows.

????This is How Deutschbank was Laundering Billions for The Russian Oligarchs !!

????This is How Deutschbank was Laundering Money for The Russian Oligarchs !!
Germany’s distressed Deutsche Bank faces penalties, legal action, and the possible prosecution of “senior management” because of its responsibility in a $20bn Russian money-laundering scheme, according to a confidential internal report.
Deutsche Bank was used to launder the money via its corresponding banking network – concretely permitting illegal Russian payments to be routed to the U.S., the European Union, and Asia.
Shell companies, typically based in the U.K., “loaned” money to each other. Companies then defaulted on this massive artificial debt. Corrupt judges in Moldova validated the debt – with billions transferred to Moldova and the Baltics via a bank in Latvia.

This is how Deutsche Bank was Laundering Billions of Russian Money called Global Laundromat – 20 billion: In the “Global Laundromat,” between 2010 and 2014, at least $20 billion of Russian money was laundered; Deutsche Bank again played an important role. In this scheme, the Latvian bank Trasta Komercbanka was used as the last point before the money was transferred across the globe. Trasta needed a corresponding Western financial institute to process its dollar-denominated transactions. Two German banks became corresponding banks for Trasta: Deutsche and Commerzbank. There are, of course, connections from the Global Laundromat to Vladimir Putin. The Russian RZB bank was a significant player in this multibillion rouble fraud. This Moscow bank wired 152.5 billion roubles (about $5 billion) to the Moldovan Moldinconbank from 2012 to 2014. Moldinconbank received most of the wires from Russian banks and then routed the money through the Latvian Trasta Komercbanka, which transferred it to Europe. Until 2011, RZB belonged to Elena Baturina, wife of the former mayor of Moscow, Yury Luzhkov. In 2010, Luzhkov was ousted by President Putin, and the next year Baturina also lost RZB. In 2011, 6 Cyprus companies became the owners of RZB. One of them – Boaden Ltd, which controlled 16.35% of RZB – was owned by St. Petersburg businessman Alexander Grigoriev, who became the corporate director of RZB. Grigoriev brought a new management team to RZB, which included Igor Putin, Vladimir Putin’s cousin, who served on RZB’s board until 2014. Grigoriev and Igor Putin share several connections. Igor Putin also was a board member of construction company SU-888, where Grigoriev is a majority shareholder. Igor Putin was also a board member of Promsberbank, in which Grigoriev owned a share. In 2013, Grigoriev acquired another Moldovan bank, Zapadniy. Zapadniy opened correspondent accounts in Moldindconbank and also became involved in transferring money from Russia to Moldova.
Ilya Lomakin-Rumyantsev, who became CEO of Zapadniy, had been head of Putin’s Presidential Expert Department in 2009-2011. In 2014-15, regulators stripped Alexander Grigoriev from his banking licenses.
It’s hypocritical to blame the whole Laundromat on Russian and German banks, going as far as labeling it the “Russian Laundromat” when British banks were arguably taking most of the action, with HSBC bank as THE major player. Other banks involved in the Laundromat:
HSBC, Bank of America, JP Morgan, Standard Chartered, Lloyds, UBS, and ING.
