Venezuelan Hyperinflation

The perfect storm is brewing in Venezuela. An over reliance on oil export revenue, a falling global oil price, and over a decade of poorly thought out socialist reforms have left the Venezuelan economy with rising inflation and unemployment. The Inflation is of course caused by the printing of money with no actual asset to back its value, once value production in the economy stalled, the inflation started and just accelerated.

Half of the remaining value of the Venezuelan Bolivar ( VEF ) could be destroyed this week if current trends continue.

This is what hyperinflation looks like at street level, shop owners begin to actually weigh money rather than count it, as its quicker. A pack of cigarettes may cost 20 notes. Higher denomination notes are being printed and ATM’s are running out of money in as little as 3 hours.

The Bolivar  (VEF) has lost value to the US dollar (USD) significantly since oil revenues dropped, but now a spike in inflation may push Venezuela to crisis point. The official exchange rate from the ‘living in denial’ government has been 10 VEF :USD.

Bitcoin vs VEF

Bitcoin has played interesting roles in this crisis. This is probably the first serious hyperinflation situation during the existence of Bitcoin, and it has been used in many ways. For the IT savvy  people, Bitcoin has been a stable and lucrative job with some miners claiming to be making 1200 USD per day. The profitability of Bitcoin in Venezuela has been due to the fact that electricity is virtually free, and electricity is the largest cost associated with bitcoin mining. Bitcoin hasn’t been with out risks, as the government has attempted to crack down on miners, and in some cases corrupt secret police have extorted miners. Bitcoin profits have enabled some miners to escape the country, which they find to be an increasingly dangerous place to live in.

Bitcoin has also played the role as a safe haven from inflation, and a medium of exchange to get around the official exchange rate and official currency exchange rules, VEF:BTC and then BTC:USD. Bitcoin has also been a way to purchase and import scarce commodities from foreign countries, and when we say scarce we mean shampoo, toilet paper and toothpaste; that is how bad it has gotten. So it seems Bitcoin has shown its strength against a currency collapse. As long as there is internet and the rest of the world is not crumbling, Bitcoin could be the most convenient safe haven in a currency crisis. Of course in an economic collapse one should take steps to conceal ones source of wealth, as thieves and kidnappers are all to happy to take it away from you.

Final Notice Of Intention to take action

Why have Police assets been destroyed

I looks like this is relating to  refusal to investigate serious frauds relating to the GFC and a some large  company collapses. Investigate banks it’s right up our alley.

 

Ballarat Police torture investigator

Warning video shows police abusing and torturing a 51 year old woman. Parts of her naked body have been pixelated out.

Under investigation are:

Senior constable Steven Repac

Steven Repac, Senior constable Steven Repac, Victoria police 24/5/2016 Ballarat IBAC

Steven Repac, Senior constable Steven Repac, Victoria police 24/5/2016 Ballarat IBAC

Leading senior constable Nicole Munro

Nicole Munro, Leading senior constable Nicole Munro, Victoria Police 24/5/2016 Ballarat IBAC

Nicole Munro, Leading senior constable Nicole Munro, Victoria Police 24/5/2016 Ballarat IBAC

Person A (who has not been named) was subjected to the following:

 Peppersprayed at close range

Stripped from the waist down in the presence of male officers.

Was refused water and resorted to  drinking from the toilet.

Was refused blanket.

Was refused clothing.

Kicked and stomped and stood on.

Imprisoned for 16 hours.

The plot really thickened once it was revealed that the woman being tortured was herself a police officer. The tortured police officer (known as person A) was off duty on sick leave and a Detective in the professional standards department, the police internal investigation unit. Also reveal was the fact that Ballarat police station has  3 times more complaints than a comparable police  station in Victoria. Making matters worse is the fact typical complaints against Ballarat police officer are against more senior ranked Police there, which implies corruption is ingrained and possibly ordered from the top.

Victoria police fought very hard for this inquiry to be keep out of the public eye, after seeing the footage you can see why.

Ballarat Police have probably tortured other detained people in similar ways many times over the years.

Ballarat Police are here shown to be brutal, cruel, malicious and vindictive to one of those who police them.

The pathetic excuse the police are coming up with are priceless, “I didn’t kick her that hard” . I would love to use those excuses in court against a police officer.

IBAC the toothless tiger?

IBAC, Victoria’s new corruption watchdog is attempting to investigate this incident in the full knowledge that Victoria police treat investigators of police in an inhuman manner. IBAC really need to gain significant jail terms for the guilty parties in this matter.

Previous  IBAC inquiries into police corruption (such as operation Styx,  David Branov et al) have resulted in quite short prison sentences (5 years non parole of 2.5 years). IBAC currently have other another investigation into Branov’s former colleagues at Fitzroy police station.

If IBAC fails to gain significant prison terms for the brutal torture and degrading  treatment  of a woman in custody, coupled with a coverup, it may be time to abandon IBAC and send each Victorian household  a revolver and let them defend themselves from a brutal and thoroughly corrupt police force.

Matt Barrie hypocritical scammer

mattBarrieFRAUDSTER

So Matt Barrie has released an article relating to the Sydney pub lock out laws. Basically he argues that the laws were created under false pretenses to give James Packers Casino a monopoly for early hours drinking, which effectively saved the company. His accusation seems to have merit, but it may not be his article at all.

Matt Barrie LinkedIn Article on Sydney lockout laws.

If one digs a little deeper into Matt Barrie one finds he is the CEO of Freelancer an Australian listed company which more or less runs a escrow scam ripping off employers and contractors by being the man in the middle that holds the bag for payments between the parties and frequently keeps the money or withholds it for extensive periods of time for no good reason.

find out more here:

https://au.trustpilot.com/review/www.freelancer.com

some examples of the freelancer scams:

Never use this company. All the bad reviews confirm this.

Freelancer is a Fraudulent rip off. They will try and steal you money. Its hard to believe that this company is still aloud to operate with so many contractors and Employers being ripped off. I wish i did product review search before I used them. Im $921 out of pocket for nothing in return. Their support is the worst in the world. No telephone support like other companies and terrible email support and response times.

Here is my story. I hired a contractor to do some website work after paying one of freelancers staff a fee of $32 fee to recommend the best freelancer for the job. I interviewed the contractor they recommended, I awarded the job to him and we agreed on a timeframe to complete the work. I then paid $800 for the job plus other admin fees $27 & $18 to Freelancer . Once I had paid freelancer the funds, the contractor then said he was going on holidays and would not be free much to do the work. We clearly discussed the time frame and he assured me he was available to complete the job. But then as soon as the job was awarded and moneys transfer to Freelancer the contractor told me he is now not available much to do the work.
I needed to get the job done and decided to get somebody else to do the work from a different agency. The contractor demanded he gets paid $100. Basically for just the job interview. No work had started or documents were provided to the contractor. I told him its ridiculous you wanted to get paid for briefly discussing the job over skype, but he demanded to get paid $100 for the job interview. I contacted Freelancer support and they told me there was an arbitration process that had to be followed. So I did that and paid another $42. The contractor backed down and I was won the dispute. They still will not release my money back to me even though i clearly won and no work has even started.

Freelancer has now locked my funds and mentioned in the notes that this matter will be resolved in 64 days. 64 days my friends, can you believe it 64 days. They has asked me to supply my passport , rates notices and other proof of id. I thought this was ridiculous but as this was not need in the beginning but did as they requested. Absolutely made no difference. Their poor support has disappeared.

This drama has been going on for 3months now. Im $921 out of pocket. I can not get a refund or use the money to get any work done.
Its not worth it to ever use this company. There are other better reputable alternatives with support.
64 days time frame to solve a support ticket is ridiculous, can your business afford that?

 

–and another–

Freelancer.com is a scam scheme

I was working with a freelancer when they suddenly locked me out of my account and refused to reply to emails. The milestones were cancelled, so the freelancer was not even paid, although she had partly delivered the job. 60 USD of mine got fraudulently seized. I wish I checked reviews before signing up to them. I knew there were schemes like this, but I didn’t expect such a big site to be one. I can’t believe it still operates.

I received a response: “It is stated in our Terms & Conditions that Freelancer.com may terminate the participation of a User if we think that they are creating problems, legal liabilities (actual or potential), infringing someone else’s intellectual property rights, engaging in fraudulent, immoral or illegal activities, or for other similar reasons”.

I merely ordered two articles for my website.

——-
Hrmm, you can ask people to write articles for your website? I wonder if Matt Barrie asked for people to write the article and then simply passed it off as his own work? I wonder if he actually paid for it? Many contractors on freelancer simply never get paid.
So here we have Matt Barrie who has won many business accolades for running a scam, is now trying to to pass himself off as a scam buster.
His business, Freelancer.com is effectively a criminal organization that has somehow mysteriously escaped the attention of  regulators and law enforcement, and he complains that a bigger fish ( James Packer )  is getting regulation written for him.
Now he wants people to think he is a ‘hero of the people’ for fighting a scam.
What delusional hypocrite.
So feel like some freelancing? We are offering  0.2 Bitcoin ( worth $109 AUD at today’s date) for any one who can give us information that proves that :
1) Matt Barrie did not write the article on Sydney lock out laws relating the Packer Casino.
and /or
2) Matt Barrie is committing crimes in relation to Freelancer.com or other businesses.
For providing proof of both points will yield 0.4 bitcoins reward.
Payment is for the first person to proved documents, bounty status will be updated as documents are received.
You can remain anonymous in providing information.

 

George Soros funding John Kasich

Attention this is the trail of bread crumbs that shows a billionaire oligarch who normally pushes left wing causes will pay of any puppet to get what he wants.  Right now what George Soros wants is to get rid of Donald Trump any way he can. Soros funded BlackLivesMatter, he funded the Chicago riots and has pushed TPPA and other globalist agendas. George Soros is one of the major puppet masters.

Pot Kettle royal commission

So in our race to the bottom of corruption legal and political system, we have a Royal commission head being accused of corruption, by the very people he is attempting to prosecute.

You really have to laugh at the system attempting to give itself legitimacy when its becoming blatantly obvious that every part is so thoroughly corrupt that there is no real hope for a reasonable settlement.

The unions have screwed their workers, the government is using the commission to attack political opponents but has been caught out stacking the commission with party lackeys.

Epic levels of hypocrisy form all sides.

Australia still struggling with corruption

 

http://www.theage.com.au/business/australian-companies-failing-to-report-suspected-corruption-20150325-1m7fqo.html

 

Self-reporting to authorities of suspected foreign bribery and corruption by Australian companies is failing to occur, with top accounting firm Deloitte revealing it has investigated at least 100 potentially illegal acts involving local firms in the past two years.

It is understood that only a handful of those companies have reported to police their suspicions that their own staff have engaged in foreign bribery or other criminal conduct.

The revelations are likely to strengthen calls from the federal police to reform Australia’s anti-bribery regime to encourage companies to disclose suspected corruption.

Deloitte senior partner Frank O’Toole said the upcoming Senate committee on foreign bribery by Australian companies should call for major changes to the nation’s anti-bribery laws.

His comments come with the release by Deloitte of a survey of more than 250 senior executives from top Australian and New Zealand companies and public sector organisations.

The survey, released exclusively to Fairfax Media, found that one-third of all companies operating in high-risk offshore destinations, including Asia, Africa and the Middle East, had uncovered a suspected bribery or corruption incident over the last five years.

Almost a quarter of all executives surveyed said their firm had, during that same period, confronted corruption involving a staff member or contractor inside Australia.

The Australian Federal Police recently told a Senate inquiry it had more than a dozen active foreign bribery investigations.

Mr O’Toole said another alarming finding from the Deloitte survey related to the failure of many firms to have an adequate anti-corruption regime to detect and prevent graft in their overseas operations.

Forty per cent of executives interviewed from firms with an offshore operation “don’t have (or don’t know if they have) a formal compliance program in place to manage corruption risk”.

“We haven’t seen any tangible decrease in levels of corruption in recent years, or any major shifts in attitudes towards it, especially in offshore jurisdictions,” Mr O’Toole said.

He said the findings highlighted the ongoing problems with the way Australia tackled white collar crime.

“We have heard a lot from the federal police about how they have ramped up their investigations of foreign bribery and that is no doubt true. But they are coming off a low base and there is still only two still unresolved prosecutions in the 15 years since foreign bribery laws were passed in Australia.”

The AFP is preparing to charge several executives and companies in the coming months with foreign bribery offences.

Senior federal police have previously called for companies to be given incentives to co-operate with authorities, including a commitment to have self-disclosure recognised during sentencing.

In the United States, which has one of the more successful anti-foreign bribery regimes in the world, disclosure by companies or whistleblowers is encouraged through a series of incentives.

These include financial rewards for tip-offs and negotiated settlements with companies that co-operate with investigators.

The Senate committee inquiry into foreign bribery will start later this year.

It was established after Labor senator Sam Dastyari told Parliament he had evidence that major Australian firms had engaged in corrupt practices overseas.

Mr Dastyari was also critical of the failure of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and the AFP to effectively combat the problem.

Former federal court judge Roger Gyles, who was recently appointed by the Abbott government to review the nation’s terrorism laws and who also chairs the local branch of corruption watchdog Transparency International, recently told Fairfax Media that Australia’s foreign bribery laws needed to be overhauled.

Mr Gyles said the key change was moving the burden of proof from prosecutors to those who have been shown to have made payments to foreign officials.

If the company cannot show a payment is legitimate, then a case may be proven, he said.

Queensland cop caught stealing on video on duty

Of course the cop was never charged for the offense of stealing $1000 from an old woman while raiding her house for allegedly selling cannabis.

 

Shane Allan Sterling a detective with Queensland police steal $1000 from a house being raided. He was unwittingly caught on security cameras and later dismissed. Check the date stamp exactly 6 months before Christmas. An anti Christmas?

Liberal party stench of corruption intensifies

abbotwifeabbottdaughter

 

I wish we could all ‘do the heavy lifting’ like Tony Abbott and his family are.

 

Dad bringing home 500,000 per year with a guaranteed superannuation of 200,000 per year plus perks, Daughter getting a full scholarship to university, Mum used to work for the Rothschild’s (masters of of the financial universe) bank. Gee they are doing it tough! Well they would be doing it tough if the average wage was 2 million per year, but its not. This greedy pig has his snout in every trough and is as corrupt as they come. He has the audacity to talk about doing things according to the constitution. Well Mr Abbott, the Australian constitution I have read clearly specifies the penalty for treason as being, death by hanging. What is does not specify is where the culprit is to be hanged from. Honestly, it’s looking more and more likely that Tony Abbott will be the first sitting Prime Minister of Australia to be hung for treason, and I suggest that if we can’t hang him by the scrotum we’ll hang him by his ankle…until dead.
