FAKE

Crooks Created 28 Fake Ad Agencies to Disguise Massive Malvertising Campaign

Social Media Bots Fake Twitter / Instagram Followers are the business model that @Jack relies on for his advertising money.
American company named Devumi that has collected millions of dollars in a shadowy global marketplace for social media fraud. Devumi sells Twitter followers and retweets to celebrities, businesses and anyone who wants to appear more popular or exert influence online. Drawing on an estimated stock of at least 3.5 million automated accounts, each sold many times over, the company has provided customers with more than 200 million Twitter followers, a New York Times investigation found.
Of course Twitter policy doesn’t allow fake accounts but his company doesn’t get rid of fake bot accounts to keep his advertising money. It isn’t a code flaw it is a feature.
Court records showing that Devumi has more than 200,000 customers, including reality television stars, professional athletes, comedians, TED speakers, pastors and models.
For just pennies each — sometimes even less — Devumi offers Twitter followers, views on YouTube, plays on SoundCloud, the music-hosting site, and endorsements on LinkedIn, the professional-networking site.

The U.S. derivatives regulator is set to announce it has fined European lenders UBS, HSBC and Deutsche Bank millions of dollars each for so-called “spoofing” and manipulation in the U.S. futures market, three people with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

Untouchable President / Vice president policy
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow argues the ‘shaky policy’ that presidents can’t be indicted was crafted with dubious origins

Maddow also interviewed J.T. Smith, who worked in the Justice Department when that reasoning was crafted who said:

“Its purpose was to allow indictment and removal of Agnew and not to serve as the ‘last word’ on indictability of the president.”  He added: “It would be timely and appropriate for the Justice Department and Robert Mueller to reconsider the shaky policy regarding indictability of a sitting president first formulated 45 years ago.” 

Maddow did note that the policy has since been revisited and reaffirmed, but she argued that its dubious beginnings and lack of constitutional foundations make it ripe for review.

Who Is Manafort’s Russian Associate in the Crosshairs of the Mueller Probe?
Paul Manafort lied to prosecutors about his meetings with Russian political operative Konstantin Kilimnik during and after the 2016 campaign. WSJ’s Shelby Holliday explains what we know about Manafort’s Russian associate.

Mueller’s Findings: Why DOJ Non-Disclosure Policy and Grand Jury Secrecy May Not Apply.
As the Watergate scandal deepened in November 1973, President Richard Nixon declared: “People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook.” Nixon was right. As John Dingell wrote in his deathbed farewell letter to the American people, in our system of government U.S. officials do not “have” power, but instead “hold” power in trust for the electorate they serve. Whatever Special Counsel Robert Mueller finds, the American people, and their congressional representatives, have a right to know whether they can continue to entrust President Donald Trump with the power of the presidency.

Russian Mafia and the Kremlin convicted Russian mobster Felix Saider had an office on the 26th floor the same floor as  Trumps office.

Kleptocracy is a form of political corruption in which the ruling government seeks personal gain and status at the expense of the governed, literally meaning “the rule by thieves.”

Robert Mercer The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind the Trump Presidency How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist insurgency. Mercer is the co-C.E.O. of Renaissance Technologies, which is among the most profitable hedge funds in the country.
1998 satire “Bulworth.” In that film, a kamikaze candidate abandons the usual talking points and excoriates both the major political parties and the media; voters love his unconventionality, and he becomes improbably popular. If the plot sounds familiar, there’s a reason: in recent years, Caddell has offered political advice to Trump. Caddell shared the research he did for Mercer with Trump and others in the campaign, including Bannon, with whom he has partnered on numerous projects. In 2012, Caddell gave a speech at a conference sponsored by Accuracy in Media, a conservative watchdog group, in which he called the media “the enemy of the American people.”

Where does fake movie money come from come from?
props.com
In 2001, during the filming of “Rush Hour 2” in Las Vegas, about $1 billion in convincing prop money was blown up during a scene, but some bills escaped destruction and ended up in circulation. That’s when the Secret Service got involved.
“We also have a high grade type, better known as close up money. That’s the one you use for a close-up scene, or if somebody is counting money and putting it in someone else’s hands. That looks fantastic. But since it looks so real, we can print it on one side only.” Instead of “United States Federal Reserve,” the words under the “100” in the top left corner read “Unreal Fake Currency Reserve.”
RJR sell theirs in stacks of 100 bills, with the standard grade going for $45 per stack, and the high grade for $65. They also make a special “distressed” type of money that looks like it’s been in circulation. That costs an extra $20. While most props are rented, money is almost always purchased (and occasionally flaunted on Instagram.) But does anybody in the business use real cash?
“Yes, actually there are a number of artists who use real money,” Rappaport revealed.
“But I can’t say who uses real money and who uses fake money because it would be a security risk.”
