Primitive Amazon Tribe Reportedly Genocided in Brazil

INDIGENOUS BRAZILIANS IN 2008.

The existence of primitive Amazon River tribes in Brazil is under threat.

The mineral and timber wealth in the region is a magnet drawing the “civilized” Brazilian, who is generally mixed race, into the rain forests. Miners, loggers, and farmers with modern weapons are a deadly force when the natives have only spears and bows and arrows to defend themselves.

By any standard these primitive tribes are no threat to the West. They aren’t out breeding us like the African. They have no desire to invade the U.S. or Europe like the Muslim.

Like wildlife such as the lion, the giraffe, and the hippopotamus, they have a right to exist. For what it’s worth I oppose the genocide of native tribes in Brazil and applaud any efforts to see to it that these primitives are left alone.

New York Times

SÃO PAULO, Brazil — They were members of an uncontacted tribe gathering eggs along the river in a remote part of the Amazon. Then, it appears, they had the bad luck of running into gold miners.

Now, federal prosecutors in Brazil have opened an investigation into the reported massacre of about 10 members of the tribe, the latest evidence that threats to endangered indigenous groups are on the rise in the country.

The Brazilian agency on indigenous affairs, Funai, said it had lodged a complaint with the prosecutor’s office in the state of Amazonas after the gold miners went to a bar in a near the border with Colombia, and bragged about the killings. They brandished a hand-carved paddle that they said had come from the tribe, the agency said.

“It was crude bar talk,” said Leila Silvia Burger Sotto-Maior, Funai’s coordinator for uncontacted and recently contacted tribes. “They even bragged about cutting up the bodies and throwing them in the river.”

The miners, she said, claimed that “they had to kill them or be killed.”

Ms. Sotto-Maior said the killings were reported to have taken place last month. The indigenous affairs bureau conducted some initial interviews in the town and then took the case to the police.

Survival International, a global indigenous rights group, warned that given the small sizes of the uncontacted Amazon tribes, this latest episode could mean that a significant percentage of a remote ethnic group was wiped out.

“If the investigation confirms the reports, it will be yet another genocidal massacre resulting directly from the Brazilian government’s failure to protect isolated tribes — something that is guaranteed in the Constitution,” said Sarah Shenker, a senior campaigner with the rights group.

Under Brazil’s president, Michel Temer, funding for indigenous affairs has been slashed. In April, Funai closed five of the 19 bases that it uses to monitor and protect isolated tribes, and reduced staffing at others. The bases are used to prevent invasions by loggers and miners and to communicate with recently contacted tribes.

Three of those bases were in the Javari Valley, which is known as the Uncontacted Frontier and is believed to be home to more uncontacted tribes than anywhere else on Earth. Approximately 20 of the 103 uncontacted tribes registered in Brazil are in the Valley.

“We had problems with previous governments, but not like this,” said Ms. Sotto-Maior, the Funai coordinator.

Her agency’s budget this year for the uncontacted tribes department was just two million reais, or about $650,000, down from 7.5 million reais in 2014. “What can I do with two million reais?” she said.

President Temer, who is deeply unpopular, has sought support from powerful agricultural, ranching and mining lobbies to push economic changes through Congress and shelter him from a corruption investigation. Last month, the lower house of Congress voted to spare him from standing trial for corruption in the Supreme Court, but only after the president doled out jobs and agreed to a series of concessions, many of which affected longstanding deforestation and land-rights regulations.

A decree by Mr. Temer that opened up a large reserve in the Amazon to mining prompted an international outcry. After a judge blocked the decree, the government announced that it would revise its decision, but critics are wary.

With land disputes on the rise in many remote areas of Brazil, indigenous groups, rural workers and land activists have all been targeted by violence. More than 50 people had been killed as of the end of July, compared with 61 in all of 2016, according to the Land Pastoral Commission.

The next time some moron professor proclaims the white race to be uniquely guilty of genocide, remember the headhunters and cannibals of the Brazilian outback and the genocide of them by nonwhite Brazilians.

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin Tweets from Fort Knox “Glad the gold is safe.”

WE NEED TO COUNT IT, NOT TAKE A BANKER’S WORD FOR IT.

Is the word of an ex-

Bloomberg

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin paid a rare official visit to Fort Knox to check out the nation’s gold stash on Monday — while keeping an open mind for future film projects.

“I assume the gold is still there,” the former Hollywood producer quipped to an audience in Louisville, Kentucky, 40 miles (64 km) north of the U.S. Bullion Depository. “It would really be quite a movie if we walked in and there was no gold.” After the visit, he playfully reassured Americans the treasure was still secure.

“Glad gold is safe!” he wrote in a post on Twitter.

Fort Knox has been seared into the public imagination since the 1964 James Bond movie “Goldfinger,” in which the British spy, played by Sean Connery, foiled a plot to contaminate the nation’s bullion.

Mnuchin, whose action-film credits include ‘‘Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Lego Batman Movie” and “Suicide Squad,” said that he would be only the third secretary of the Treasury to go inside the vault since it was created in 1936 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

“We have approximately $200 billion of gold at Fort Knox,” said Mnuchin. “The last time anybody went in to see the gold, other than the Fort Knox people, was in 1974 when there was a congressional visit. And the last time it was counted was actually in 1953.”

Rand Paul argues that it’s time to audit the Fed. I assume that a thorough audit would include counting the gold in Fort Knox.

It is time to defy the critics and pass the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, which would be a momentous victory for accountability and transparency and send the establishment’s head spinning, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul wrote in an opinion piece in The Daily Caller on Monday.

More popularly known as “Audit the Fed,” the act would “open up the Fed’s agreements with foreign governments and central banks, its discount window and open market operations, its member bank reserves, and its Federal Open Market Committee directives to thorough examination by the people’s representatives — for the first time since its creation in 1913,” Paul wrote.

The act does this, Paul explained, by removing “the restraints on how the nonpartisan, independent Government Accountability Office can audit the Federal Reserve System, requiring the GAO to conduct an audit within one year of the bill’s passage and report back to Congress within 90 days of finishing it.”

Paul said that skeptics have said that since the nation’s central bank is one of the most powerful institutions in Washington, passing such legislation would never be feasible, but the senator credited “grassroots Americans” for making sure that congressmen don’t give up the struggle to make it into law.

The measure has already passed the House and last year missed reaching cloture by only seven votes.

Paul praised those supporting the bill as “concerned Americans who look down the road and wonder how much of our nation’s prosperity and opportunity will be swallowed up by debt or lost in financial crises fueled by artificial market signals and central planners’ economic tinkering.”

Traitor Kushners Apologize for Pitch Luring More Chinese into Amurkistan

Give (((us))) your half million bucks and then come stay in the US.

That’t the pitch for Kushner 1, a big New Jersey real estate development being promoted by the President’s son-in-law. Since yesterday’s post on this story, it’s gotten legs and the Kushners have been forced to apologize for their sordid money grubbing treason.

WNYC

The sister of President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, highlighted her powerful brother as she pitched financing the family firm’s real estate project in New Jersey to Chinese investors.

That’s according to reporters from The Washington Post and The New York Times, who were attending the publicly advertised event at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Beijing on Saturday before press was removed from the room.

“Speaking in a ballroom, [Nicole] Meyer said the project ‘means a lot to me and my entire family,'” according to the Times. “She mentioned her brother’s service as chief executive of Kushner Companies, the family business from which he resigned in January, saying he had left to serve in the Trump administration.”

This is the latest in a series of conflict-of-interest questions surrounding the vast business interests of top Trump administration officials.

“It’s highly problematic,” Noah Bookbinder, the executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, tells NPR. “It appears that Jared Kushner’s family business is using his name and his official position to bring in investment.”

Kushner Companies “apologizes if that mention of [Meyer’s] brother was in any way interpreted as an attempt to lure investors,” it said in a statement emailed to NPR, adding that it was not her intention. It said the One Journal Square project would provide millions in tax revenue and bring in thousands of construction jobs to New Jersey.

The event was organized by QWOS, a firm that helps Chinese citizens access U.S. green cards through investments. Its advertising highlights the controversial EB-5 visa program, which provides a path to a green card to foreign nationals who invest at least half a million dollars and create 10 full-time jobs.

“Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States,” said one pamphlet for the event to raise money for the project, according to the Post.

The program is popular with some commercial real estate developers, who use it to raise funds for their projects, as NPR’s Greg Allen has reported. But it has also been linked to fraud schemes and critics are uneasy about the idea of “essentially selling visas to wealthy foreigners with no proven skills, paving the way for money laundering and compromising national security, as Bloomberg reported.

Before Kushner joined the Trump administration as a senior adviser, the news agency added, his family firm raised some $50 million through the EB-5 program for a Trump-branded luxury apartment building in New Jersey.

Kushner’s lawyer, Blake Roberts of WilmerHale law firm, said in an emailed statement that Kushner “will recuse from particular matters concerning the EB-5 visa program.”

Bookbinder, from the watchdog group CREW, says that “at this point, it might make sense for him to consider broader-based recusals on China issues as well, as more and more business ties keep on coming up.”

Roberts also stressed that Kushner has distanced himself from the firm he used to run:

“Mr. Kushner has no involvement in the operation of Kushner Companies and divested his interests in the One Journal Square project by selling them to a family trust that he, his wife, and his children are not beneficiaries of, a mechanism suggested by the Office of Government Ethics.”

Kushner’s mother and siblings are beneficiaries of that family trust, a White House official confirmed.

Ethics watchdogs had wanted to see Kushner’s assets sold to independent third parties, rather than to a family trust.

Treasonous Kushners Promoting Chinese Immigration (But Only Rich Chinese)

Hey Jared! I have an idea. Let’s scam the chinks! There’s lots of good money over there in China that we can suck into another real estate project. The Donald won’t care. He likes rich people. Right, dude?

The Hill

Representatives from the Kushner family business are encouraging wealthy Chinese citizens to “invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”

That was the tagline for an event held Saturday in the ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton in Beijing, The Washington Post reported. A woman identified as the sister of senior presidential advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner delivered a message encouraging those in the room to invest in a New Jersey real estate project to get an investor visa.

The visa, known as the EB-5 immigrant investor visa program, gives foreign investors the opportunity to invest in projects in the U.S. that create jobs. It then lets them apply to immigrate to the U.S.

The event was hosted by the Chinese company Qiaowai, which is working to get funding for Kushner 1, a project in New Jersey.

“This project has stable funding, creates sufficient jobs and guarantees the safety of investors’ money,” one description of the project said.

Promotional materials made note of the Kushner family’s “celebrity” status, but did not mention the president specifically. Organizers were also reportedly uncomfortable with media attendance at the public event and attempted to block access.

A Chinese investor who attended the event, Wang Yun, told The Post the family’s association with Trump could go both ways.

“Even though this is the project of the son-in-law’s family, of course it is still affiliated,” Wang said.

“We heard that there are rumors that he is the most likely to be impeached president in American history. That’s why I doubt this project.”

They call the Chinese the Jews of the Orient. Everything is about money to them. It’s part of their national character.

$2.5 Million Donation by Parents Allegedly Bought (((Jared Kushner’s))) Way into Harvard

IVANKA’S FATHER IN LAW IS AN EX-CON.

Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law is now a powerful member of Team Trump, governing from an office in the White House. Kushner is widely believed to be a globalist who is opposed to much of the platform that Trump ran on during the 2016 election.

Since a significant cross-section of alt-right nationalists are now on board with #firekusher, let’S flashback to November of last year and learn how President Trump’s son-in-law allegedly gained admission to Harvard University when he was not academically qualified.

The Guardian

My book exposed a grubby secret of American higher education: that the rich buy their underachieving children’s way into elite universities with massive, tax-deductible donations. It reported that New Jersey real estate developer Charles Kushner had pledged $2.5m to Harvard University not long before his son Jared was admitted to the prestigious Ivy League school, which at the time accepted about one of every nine applicants. (Nowadays, it only takes one out of 20.)

I also quoted administrators at Jared’s high school, who described him as a less-than-stellar student and expressed dismay at Harvard’s decision.

“There was no way anybody in the administrative office of the school thought he would on the merits get into Harvard,’’ a former official at the Frisch school in Paramus, New Jersey, told me. “His GPA [grade point average] did not warrant it, his SAT scores did not warrant it. We thought, for sure, there was no way this was going to happen. Then, lo and behold, Jared was accepted. It was a little bit disappointing because there were at the time other kids we thought should really get in on the merits, and they did not.’’

Risa Heller, a spokeswoman for Kushner Companies, said in an email on Thursday that “the allegation’’ that Charles Kushner’s gift to Harvard was related to Jared’s admission “is and always has been false”. His parents, Charles and Seryl Kushner, “are enormously generous and have donated over $100m to universities, hospitals and other charitable causes. Jared Kushner was an excellent student in high school and graduated from Harvard with honours.’’ (About 90% of Jared’s 2003 class at Harvard also graduated with honours.)

Charles Kushner differed from his peers on the committee in another way: he had a criminal record. Five years after Jared entered Harvard, the elder Kushner pleaded guilty in 2004 to tax violations, illegal campaign donations and retaliating against a witness. (As it happens, the prosecutor in the case was Chris Christie, recently ousted as the head of Trump’s transition team.) Charles Kushner had hired a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law, who was cooperating with federal authorities. Kushner then had a videotape of the tryst sent to his sister. He was sentenced to two years in federal prison.

In this White House Tweet, Jared Kushner is the one NOT looking at the TV screen showing information related to the attack on Syria.

Richard Spencer Reveals His Funding Sources to LA Times

For those interested in Richard Spencer’s finances, we now have a decent understanding of the sources of his money.

You’ll learn how a foundation acted as a go-between for an anonymous donor and Spencer. You’ll also learn the amount of Spencer’s salary.

Spencer provided his tax returns to the LA Times. They were not stolen.

Los Angeles Times

The largest donor to Richard Spencer’s nonprofit in recent years was a Georgia community foundation that said it didn’t know it was supporting a white nationalist.

Its donations to his National Policy Institute totaled $25,000 from 2013 to 2014, according to three years of unpublished tax returns that Spencer gave to The Times.

The returns offer the most detailed look to date at the finances of a white nationalist who has risen to national prominence over the last year. The growing revenue of his organization — which has failed to file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service since 2012 and as a result lost its tax-exempt status — came primarily from anonymous donors and conferences advocating a separate nation for white people.
