I haven't looked at the forum in a couple of days, so what is happening in the investigation currently? Has anyone resigned or been thrown out of TBF? Did Davout ever give Bruno back his money? I hear you get access to free teen gay porn when you join TBF now, is that true?

Clinton Snared In Pedophile Ring

http://fortune.com/2014/05/28/does-the-fbis-marijuana-policy-breed-dishonest-applicants/

Quote
In talks with Fortune for a July 2013 feature profile, Freeh, who was the third-longest serving FBI director until Robert Mueller served for 12 years, told a story from when he first took the job in September 1993. “We had a policy when I came on board that if you had ever smoked a single joint of marijuana, you couldn’t be an FBI agent. I changed that,” he said. “It created a little bit of controversy at the time.” He continued:

I said to our guys, ‘Look, I’m 42, most of you guys are 50, have you ever smoked marijuana?’ They said no, and I believed them. But I said, ‘These young men and women coming in today, they’ve all smoked a couple times. They all know our policy and they know that if they say they’ve ever smoked a joint, they’re out of the process. So they all lie.’ And they said, ‘We never really thought about it that way.’ So I asked, ‘Do we want our new agents’ first interaction with the Bureau to be a lie?’ So I changed the policy.

A lot of guys said, ‘This is wrong, boss, you can’t do it.’ I said, ‘My purpose is not to encourage people to smoke marijuana, but I don’t want people lying to us on their first application when they come in.’ So, if Louis smoked five joints in the past, never sold to anyone, as long as he discloses it, it’s okay. And that’s still the case and I think it’s gotten even more liberal.

Freeh’s idea (alarming to many of his colleagues at the time) to refrain from even asking applicants whether they had smoked marijuana was too radical to be adopted; today, the question is still asked. The only change made back in Freeh’s day was that mere past and very minor usage would not be an automatic bar to employment. Today, the grace period is three years. But Freeh had the foresight to know that, realistically, the FBI could not expect its applicants to have completely refrained, in their entire lives, from recreational marijuana usage. And his point is still well-taken under today’s three-year policy: Assuming that incoming agents know the specific policy, they’re still, in a sense, encouraged to lie. A potential FBI techie who just smoked a joint the day before is incentivized to claim he hasn’t smoked in three years.

Quote
Some day little Theresa Freeh will realize what a special little girl she was on that Wednesday when Pope Francis kissed her.

She was among 800,000 people crowding the Vatican in the center of Rome during the sainthood ceremonies recently where two former popes were canonized.

Theresa was born in Lander back in 2012 to Professor John Freeh and his wife Helen. Most recently the Freeh’s have been working in Santa Fe but he will be returning this fall to the faculty of Wyoming Catholic College.

Here is John’s version of what happened:

“Greetings from Assisi, and thanks so much for your help during our pilgrimage to Italy for Easter and the Canonization of Sts. John XXIII and John Paul II.

“We have yet to fully comprehend the blessings of this trip, the highlight of which was the papal audience in St. Peter's square. There were great crowds still in Rome that had come for Sunday's historic event that has been called the day of the four popes: Francis and Benedict honoring their holy predecessors, and all the Church.

“I arrived at the square shortly after 7 a.m., but found the lines for the 10:30 audience already long. After passing through security, the crowd rushed to fill the seats in the front section. Whether through divine inspiration or human laziness, I held back, and sat instead in the second–to-last row of the section, staking out three seats and hoping my wife Helen and daughter Theresa would be able to work their way there later. They did, thanks to a sympathetic Swiss guard who let them into the piazza about 9 a.m., after the entryways had been closed.

“I had with me an invitation for Pope Francis to visit the city of Santa Fe (whose full name is, in English, the City of the Holy Faith of St. Francis of Assisi).

“Just before the audience, the Popemobile with a smiling Francis turned into the passageway behind where we were sitting. I grabbed our daughter and the invitation as Helen readied the camera. I held our daughter high as the Pope passed. A plainclothes' Swiss guard swept Theresa from me, presenting her to the Holy Father to be kissed, while I handed the invite to one of those who rode behind the Pope.

“Our daughter was then returned to her stunned and wildly grateful parents. It gets no better in this vale terrestrial. God is good.”

If the name Freeh sounds familiar, it is because John is the younger brother of Louis Freeh, the former head of the FBI.

Quote
The former FBI director has become corporate America’s top investigator — but not without some controversy.

If there is such a thing as the Platonic ideal of a G-man, it would have to resemble Louis Freeh. Even today, 12 years after retiring as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Freeh favors what look like government-issue gray suits with an American flag pin on the lapel. His factual, flat speaking style conjures an FBI agent on the witness stand. Five-foot-nine and trim at age 63, he still looks as if he could sprint down the street after a perp if he had to. Needless to say, it's been decades since Freeh chased those sorts of perps.

By Nathan Layne

(Reuters) - A group of investors have offered to take over the assets of Mt. Gox and revive the bankrupt bitcoin exchange with the help of experts including the investigative firm of a former FBI director, according to a court filing in Japan.

The offer, filed with the Tokyo District Court last month, marks the first time that anyone has submitted a proposal to sponsor the rehabilitation of Mt. Gox since it sought bankruptcy protection from creditors on Feb. 28.

The group, which includes former child actor-turned entrepreneur Brock Pierce and venture capitalist William Quigley, made the offer through a special purpose company established in the Cyprus Republic, the court filing shows.

None of the principals of the company, called Sunlot Holdings Ltd., could be reached for comment. Alpha Partners Law Offices, which is representing Sunlot in Tokyo, declined to comment.

The proposal did not include an offer price, although the group said in the filing that it believed Mt. Gox's present enterprise value was zero.

The Wall Street Journal, which first reported on the proposal, said the group was seeking to buy Mt. Gox for a token payment of one bitcoin, or about $400.

Mt. Gox shut down its exchange and filed for bankruptcy in February. At the time it said hackers had stolen 750,000 bitcoins belonging to its customers and 100,000 of its own bitcoins after exploiting a security flaw in its software. .

But then in March Mt. Gox announced that it had discovered 200,000 bitcoins in an old-format online wallet, which it had thought was empty, raising creditors' hopes of recovering some of their lost digital wealth.

NEW MANAGEMENT, NEW SECURITY

The investment group proposed a new management team headed by John Betts, who founded a data management firm and has held positions in electronic trading at Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs in the past, according to his LinkedIn page.

The group said it would develop a new trading and security platform and review its relationship with banks as part of its effort to revive the exchange. It also proposed a forensic investigation.

In the filing, the group listed Freeh Group International Solutions, a firm established by former FBI director Louis Freeh that has carried out a series of investigations into high-profile scandals, among a team of advisers it planned to tap for Mt. Gox.

No one at the Freeh Group could immediately be reached for comment.


Under the group's proposal, creditors would have the option of receiving payment from the 200,000 recovered bitcoins or receiving the equivalent amount in equity in the new exchange, according to the filing.

The group said it would set aside 50 percent of its transaction fees to pay back burned customers and other creditors over time.

The group did not disclose what amount, if any, it was willing to put towards the operations of the revived firm. It would need about $8 million for the first 18 weeks of its revival plan, which would come out of Mt. Gox's cash until the online exchange system is back up and running, the filing shows.

The group will consider acquisitions and an initial public offering as part of a longer-term strategy for Mt. Gox, the filing said.

It is not clear whether the court will give Mt. Gox a chance to revive with the help of a sponsor such as Sunlot Holdings.

A court-appointed administrator has until May 9 to report on the results of an investigation into what led to Mt. Gox's collapse and whether it meets the criteria for rehabilitation under creditor protection or should be liquidated.

In the filing, the investor group said it had been in talks with Mt. Gox about its operations since January 2013 and was in negotiations about a stock transaction when the company filed for bankruptcy protection this year.

I wouldn't worry about the death threat. Gays are very emotional people. Was he in drag, flipping his hair back and putting his hand on his hip when he did it? That's a sure sign he was just being a drama queen. Fat gay Freemasons that wear glasses are always like that.

U.S. Sex Trafficking Banker Has High-Level Global Ties - Jeffrey Epstein, U.S. UK Islands

Quote
Uploaded on Apr 9, 2011

March 2011. FBI to reopen investigation into disgraced banker Jeffrey Epstein following Mail on Sunday revelations about sexual exploitation of teenage girls + links with high-profile individuals, incl Prince Andrew.

The FBI wants to interview Esptein's former personal 'masseuse', Virginia Roberts; she was recruited as Epstein's sex slave when she was just 15.

In an exclusive interview with The Mail, Virginia confirmed she will fully co-operate w the new investigation which could have serious implications for Epstein + embarrass Prince Andrew who she met on 3 occasions. 'I will talk to the FBI,' Virginia said.'I am anxious. I am still frightened of him because he has so much power. I had to put this behind me. 'But in the end this is not for me. It's because I'm afraid there are a lot of girls still doing what I did for him, 8 years after I left. I want to be the one who breaks the chain.'

A source close to the inquiry said the FBI decided to reopen the case because of Virginia's revelations to The Mail last week. He said: 'Now that Virginia has come forward and identified herself as a victim who was flown around the world by Epstein for the purpose of committing a criminal act, this is being taken seriously.

Now a married Mother of 3 living in Australia, Virginia alleged that her services were offered to a number of politicians, businessmen and international statesmen.
She met Prince Andrew the first time was at the London house of Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the disgraced former media tycoon Robert Maxwell. The second time was at Epstein's grand New York townhouse and the third on Epstein's private Caribbean island.
The new FBI investigation will undoubtedly be of grave concern to Prince Andrew, whose continued friendship with the financier, a convicted child sex offender, was unwise. On Friday, he severed all ties with Epstein - although the new investigation could reveal further damaging details of their association.

It's believed the new investigation will center on Epstein's procuring of young girls + paying them to provide sexual favours for his business associates at his homes in New York, Florida, U.S. Virgin Islands + New Mexico.

Epstein's palatial houses were secretly covered by a network of hidden video cameras, raising concerns that compromising footage exists of a number of rich and powerful individuals useful to Epstein's work as a money manager. 'If Virginia's allegations are correct, Epstein may have committed offenses not covered by the non-prosecution agreement,' our source said.

The previous FBI investigation was shelved after Epstein's lawyers struck a plea bargain with prosecutors at the US Attorney's office in South Florida in which Epstein pleaded guilty to solicitation of prostitution + a single charge of procuring minors for prostitution. Epstein was sentenced to 18 months in 2008; he only served 13 months.

Virginia agreed the original questioning was insufficient but felt powerless to do anything. 'I felt no one was listening to me,' she said, 'including maybe my own lawyers. 'I told my lawyers I thought that some of the men I had to have sex with were powerful and rich, but they didn't even show me pictures that would have helped me identify them." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic... and at http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/...

Jeffrey Epstein Kept Secret Journal described as "The Holy Grail" which listed his Under-Aged Victims + Celebrity Guests he Entertained. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/world... and http://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/new...

11-22-2012. COLBY, BARAK, ROTHSCHILD, EPSTEIN, MAXWELL... 'Fear and intimidation experienced by victims during pre-trial proceedings, combined with a ferocious, protracted campaign to undermine the prosecution, culminated in a set of charges that became a virtual slap on the wrist.' http://aangirfan.blogspot.co.uk/2012_... and http://hat4uk.wordpress.com/2012/11/2...

2006. Sex scandal in Palm Beach FL, which resulted in the indictment of mysterious "money manager" for billionaires - who declares the U.S. Virgin Islands as his legal residence for tax purposes - in prostitution case involving teenage girls washed up on the shores of his USVI home on the 100-acre private island of Little St. James http://www.demmansay.com/files/Florid...

I am a bit disappointed with FairPlay USA.

Apparently two people on their Board of Directors, Tom Ridge and Louis Freeh, were both invited to testify before the congressional subcommittee having a hearing on Internet gaming next Tuesday. Both men will be out of the country and will, thusly, not be at the hearing to testify.

This is ironic considering that the hearing is focusing on the SAFETY of Internet gaming.

FairPlay USA is supposed to be focusing on law enforcement and soccer moms. This hearing next week is MADE for FairPlay USA. And their board members won't even be there.

What has FPU done to advance the cause of online poker?

Please, Jehovah, don't let me discover later that Louis Freeh is Bulgarian, for I have some more typing to do.

(From April)
Investor John Betts Says There is Support for MtGox Buyout

John Betts is one of the investors with Sunlot Holdings who has been looking to buy MtGox since January 2013. Sunlot Holdings is offering one Bitcoin (~$500) to buy MtGox, which was at one time the largest and most successful Bitcoin exchange.

According to John Betts, creditors who own over 70% of MtGox’s lost bitcoins have agreed to Sunlot Holdings’ proposition of buying and reviving the fallen Bitcoin exchange. They feel it is a better alternative than having a Japanese court liquidate MtGox...
https://coinreport.net/john-betts-support-mtgox-buyout

If SunGox installs a large hot tub and buys a pile of coke, it will be just like the good old days in Cali. Shocked
Maybe they will hire Mark to bring expensive coffee.

I'm surprised nobody tried to bribe PG to back off. I guess he's not close enough yet.

What if there was proof that Brock Pierce and Autumn Radtke once attended a function in which the Clintons, and the then unknown Barack Obama, among other notables, were also invited guess. Would that pique your interest?

What about bitcoins working their way into 401Ks and private funds? Yes, there are people who have 401Ks that never heard of bitcoins, yet their hard-earned dollars have indirectly purchased them. What if when the exchange rate for BTC goes up, their BTC positions are lowered via profit taking, but if the rate declines, the owners' funds reflect the lost, with new money injected into the funds for the next uptick.

Boy, would I love to have only .001% of that action. How 'bout you?

I can't wait for the above cryptohints to be explained, but here's a Snickers while we wait:

(from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MtGox)

"On 25 February 2014, Mt.Gox reported on its website that a "decision was taken to close all transactions for the time being", citing "recent news reports and the potential repercussions on MtGox's operations". The chief executive, Mark Karpelès told Reuters that Mt. Gox was "at a turning point".

On 28 February 2014 Mt. Gox filed for bankruptcy protection in Tokyo, reporting that it had liabilities of about 6.5 billion yen ($64 million at the time), and 3.84 billion yen in assets.[62][63] The company said they had lost almost 750,000 of its customers' bitcoins, and around 100,000 of its own bitcoins, totaling around 7% of all bitcoins, and worth around $473 million near the time of the filing."


Yeah yeah Buff, we all know that, you say. But did u noe this?

http://i.imgur.com/DtXeUE3.png

Talk about being on the ball! That's a good three days before MtGox publicly filed for bankruptcy.

Unfortunately, I wasn't paying much attention to Gox (cuz fuck trading on Gox) when it imploded. Does anyone remember where the public mood on Gox was at on Feb 25? In other words, how reasonable would it have been, on that specific day, to start putting together a high-stakes rescue team for the sole purpose of acquiring legal control over MtGox?

I know that Feb. 25 was the day that the site officially shut down trading, and panic was in the air...

But when did SaveGox actually publicly burst onto the scene? Most of the hits on Google show the SaveGox chatter starting in early April, with one or two mentions in late March.

Just lying in wait...

I think we should take a closer look at the caches for SaveGox.com.

http://i.imgur.com/y2SBc4f.png

IT'S HIM! CMON, WE GOTTA GO FIND RESPECTMYPRIVACY.COM-

oh wait. fuck.

Well, at the very least we could check the archive.org caches and see just how much (if anything) was posted to the site pre-February 28...

Maybe this is Mark Karpeles' Batman logo connection: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Men:_The_Last_Stand#Development

Quote
Bryan Singer, the director of the first two X-Men films, left the project in July 2004 in favor of developing Superman Returns.[29] Singer stated that he "didn’t fully have X-Men 3 in my mind" in contrast to a fully formed idea for a Superman film and interest in joining that franchise.[30] By the time of his departure, Singer had only produced a partial story treatment with X2 screenwriters Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, who accompanied him to Superman Returns. The treatment focused on Jean Grey's resurrection,[31] which would also introduce the villainness Emma Frost, a role intended for Sigourney Weaver.[32] Frost was an empath manipulating Jean's emotions in the treatment and, like the finished film, Magneto desires to control her. Overwhelmed by her powers, Jean kills herself, but Jean's spirit survives and becomes a god-like creature, which Dougherty compared to the star child in A Space Odyssey.

But the guys behind a group called Sunlot have some heft. Two are execs at major venture capital firms that combined have invested more than $1.5 billion. Another helped build electronic trading platforms for Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

We asked that investor, John Betts, whether there is some kind of underlying asset they are targeting that no one has realized yet.

Strevus Announces Support for the Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Market

Strevus to Provide First Institutional-Level, Future-Proof Compliance Lifecycle Management for Digital Currency and Exchanges

Transacting cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, makes it difficult for financial organizations to enforce Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML) or other anti-fraud rules according to a recent report. Furthermore, as more institutional trading organizations leverage Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, regulators will likely adopt regulatory mandates similar to those that currently apply to traditional banking and trading networks. To meet the growing adoption of digital currencies, Strevus Inc., today announced it is extending its existing technology to support Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with institutional-level compliance lifecycle management.

This was posted on cryptocrypt.org but is important enough for the community to know about it so John gave me his permission to repost it here.

Hi everyone, my name is John Betts, and I am leading the proposed rehabilitation effort for Mt Gox, and Goat asked me to post here and communicate with you.


In short - we want to take over management of the company from Mark, so that we can handle the Civil Rehabilitation proceedings, distribute customers the assets currently under the control of the Supervisor, and rebuild the exchange.


We also have plans to lead asset recovery efforts, and to give customers participation in the new exchange through a combination of equity interest and revenue share.


I would like to begin a dialogue with you, to introduce myself, our syndicate, and what a rehabilitation plan might look like, and to seek your support to convince the Supervisor not go down the liquidation route that will further hurt customers, and to support our effort lead the civil rehabilitation proceeding, which we will pursue with your collaboration.


Right now, we are working with the Supervisor to convince them bankruptcy only protects Mark, and would be detrimental to creditors.


Hopefully you share our concern about liquidation vs. rehabilitation.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.


We are in the process of preparing more detail around our proposal, and I will share that with you as we release it.


Best regards,
JB

They have a site set up at savegox.com

I'm not sure this will work but I like the idea of it. Getting rid of Mark and having a professional audit by people who care about BTC seems like a better path than what is on offer. Anyway open to your ideas and feedback.

Looks to me like John Betts knew something.

In the filing, [ Sunlot ] listed Freeh Group International Solutions, a firm established by former FBI director Louis Freeh that has carried out a series of investigations into high-profile scandals, among a team of advisers it planned to tap for Mt. Gox.
Note: "it planned to tap".  Sunlot also mentioned PricewaterhouseCooper (PwC) as a firm that might do the audit.  But their PR admits (and it is in their writings, apparently) that they have no agreement with PwC yet.  They plan to "tap" PwC after the takeover is approved, but if PwC does not accept their terms and price, then Sunlot is free to do whatever it pleases about the audit, and the clients who agreed to the takeover will be allowed to sit and wait.

Presumably their deal with FGIS for the criminal investigation is on the same level as their deal with PwC.

But I have a bad feeling about how this affair wil end.  Sunlot already made a deal with the major claimants who were suing MtGOX in the US (and who claimed to have evidence of wrongdoings) to retire their lawsuit.  Some big-time criminals will probably walk out of this, free and rich...

The crooks look so determined, and the bitcoiners so naive, greedy, and lame...  Tongue

Academic interest in bitcoin only. Not owner, not trader, very skeptical of its longterm success.

You almost had me, till I figure out why such verbiage was used to inject Louis Freeh's namesake in Sunlot's quest.
