Brexit, Tax Havens, Money Laundering & That Missing $21 Trillion

$21 trillion in federal funds went outright missing between 1998 and 2015, with no one the wiser on where it went and more importantly, how.  A few keen minds have alerted alarm bells through their forensic research, yet government, its bought-off press & the checked-out public continue to simply walk past it.  “Nothing to see here, move on.”  Including you, young, daring Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with your ‘woke tweets’…

Yet although solid, transparent audit trails aren’t made available, hints of where said funds could’ve flown to surface nonetheless via foreign money flows in offshore tax havens & related money laundering considerations.  Composite figures in the billions & trillions oddly overlap at times, not coincidentally.  When weighed historically, economically & geopolitically, secret jurisdictional legal & financial structures in ostensibly obscure locales like the Caribbean, Bermuda, Panama, Guernsey & even Nevada & Delaware, could grant invaluable leads.  As could major national political referenda such as Brexit, for that matter, which, if it goes through, could worsen the fogginess of illicit money flows through certain institutions, to the benefit of the very wealthy & powerful, some of whom plan much wider global economic trends via ‘controlled chaos’ in the medium to longer term.

In this 38th episode of Money & Fear, we’ll strain to explore dots which boldly need some connecting between the worlds of high finance, money laundering on as high a plane as exists politically, and Brexit’s possible positioning for benefiting the planners behind it all, rather than the increasingly indebted, impoverished public at large.  Dare to think, dare to dream!  Otherwise, do as you’re told by the Powers That Be & suffer the wider approaching macroeconomic consequences without having tried.

    Thank you for this superb report, Pye.

  2. James Williamson says:

    Yes, as you pointed out, Pye, ‘The Spider’s Web’ is superb (and essential viewing). Until US Americans (and the rest of the world as well) begin to comprehend at least vaguely how our current globalist and “shadow finance” system functions, we’ll all remain slaves to it.

    • Amber Sayman says:

      I just finished watching The Spider’s Web! It was very well done.

      Thank you, Pye Ian, for doing such diligent work for Newsbud’s viewers. <3 This is real journalism – and so much more detailed and educational than anyone else. When I watch televised news, I am meant to feel either indignant or entertained. Newsbud leaves me feeling enriched and informed. So much better than the emotional roller coaster of beltway propaganda. Thanks again.

  3. Thank you all for your kind, thoughtful comments.

  4. tallsexyblonde says:

    Pye, thanks for a whopper of a program! — Admittedly I have to listen to most of what you say twice for it to really sink in, but I wouldn’t change it for the world 😉

    Coincidentally, I had watched the Spiders Web documentary in recent months, and my mind has been subconsciously mulling over the possibility of a connection between that and Brexit, so I am really pleased about this episode – it’s helped clear some smoke from view.

    Austin Fitts is a legend. I was not aware of her report regarding the 21T, so thanks for mentioning that. I followed your link to Solari to look at the report but only a summary version was to be found in PDF form, with sub-links to what should lead to the full report, but again the summary appears. A note from the updates, which I found ‘amusing’ was:

    “On October 4, 2018 federal government officials accepted the recommendation of the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) that the government be allowed to misstate and move funds in order to hide expenditures if it is deemed necessary for national security purposes. The new guidelines are to apply to all agencies, not just the black budget.”

    Keep up the good work.
