Thousands of Americans Jailed For Debts Chased By Private Collectors

An estimated 77 million Americans have a debt that has been transferred to a private collection agency. Thousands have ended up in jail over debts as small as $28, with African-Americans and Hispanics the most affected.

The findings come from a new report by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) spanning 26 states and Puerto Rico, published on Wednesday. The practice violates many US state and federal laws, which prohibit the jailing of debtors.

In one case cited in the report, a disabled woman who wears a prosthetic leg was shackled by her waist and feet by two armed US marshals before being put in jail overnight.

They had a warrant for my arrest and I asked them for what, he didn’t say what it was for. He said, ‘He’ll tell you later,’” said Tracie Mozie of Dickinson, Texas.

Law enforcement officials had entered Mozie’s bedroom to arrest her over a $1,500 federal student loan she took out in 1986 to pay for truck-driving school. The loan had mushroomed to $13,000 with interest and fees. Monzie was unable to pay because she is unemployed and lives on disability benefits.

The ACLU examined more than 1,000 cases in which civil court judges issued arrest warrants for debtors. In some instances the amounts were as small as $28. Letters were sent over bounced checks as low as $2, the ACLU found.

The report is the first ever to analyze the cooperation between courts and the private debt collection industry across the US, according to the ACLU. Private debt collectors use the criminal justice system to try to compel repayments, even when the debts are disputed or when the debtor cannot repay.  More than 6,000 debt collection firms operate in the United States, collecting billions of dollars each year.

Following their arrest, debtors may remain in jail for several days until they can pay the bail. In some cases, the ACLU found some people were locked up for as long as two weeks.

This practice violates the many state and federal laws as well as international human rights standards that prohibit the jailing of debtors.

The report finds that the long-term consequences of arrests for both courts and people can be profound and scarring. Arrest warrants can be entered into background check databases which mean they can jeopardize future employment, housing applications, education, and access to security clearances.

In one case in Maryland, an elderly couple were jailed because they did not appear at a district court hearing for which they had never been served notice. Isaac, 83, and his wife Doris owed $2,342.76 to their homeowners’ association and $450 in attorney’s fees. They had never been served with notice of the hearing, which had itself been scheduled because they failed to appear at a post-judgment proceeding for which they also had never been served. While in detention, Isaac began vomiting blood and became non-responsive, according to the report.

While debtors’ prisons were outlawed by Congress almost two hundred years ago, in reality the practice seems to live on.

Canadian billionaires were ‘murdered’, say private detectives

Barry Sherman, 75, who was the chairman of Canada’s largest drugs manufacturer Apotex, was found dead with his wife Honey, 70, at their home in Toronto on 15 December.

The city’s homicide unit had said that both Mr and Mrs Sherman were strangled to death but did not classify the deaths as homicides.

Officers ruled out murder after the husband and wife were found hanging in their home. According to Canadian media, they believed Mr Sherman killed his wife and hung her before hanging himself.

But the couple’s four children told the Toronto Star a murder-suicide did not make any sense and hired a lawyer to probe deeper into the deaths.

The lawyer, Brian Greenspan, hired private detectives and asked for another post-mortem examination of the bodies.

The pathologist and detectives – some of whom are former Toronto homicide investigators – reportedly found markings on Mr and Mrs Sherman’s wrists.

They said it showed their hands had been tied with a cord or plastic zip tie, despite the pair being found with their hands untied and no sign of ropes or cords nearby.

Toxicology reports showed no signs of abnormal drug use.

The hired team claimed Mr and Mrs Sherman were actually strangled to death with men’s leather belts.

The newspaper said sources close to the family had described the deaths as “professional”, a “staged homicide” and a “contract killing”.

According to the Star, there was no signs of damage, forced entry or evidence of a home invasion at the property.

A review by police and the private investigators of CCTV footage taken from nearby homes has not sparked any leads, the newspaper said.

Mr Sherman founded his company, which employs more than 11,000 people, in 1974. He is often credited with revolutionising the drugs industry in Canada.

Moon Express Set To Be First Private Company To Land On The Moon

By Fattima Mahdi Truth Theory

Co-founded in August 2010 by Naveen Jain, Robert D. Richards and Barney Pell, Moon Express is a California-based private space firm that vows to be the first private organisation to land on the Moon. Their mission? To set up a Lunar mining facility.

June 30th 2011 marked the first successful test flight of their lunar Lander Test Vehicle (LTV), which was developed in tandem with NASA. After setting up a robotics lab in September of that same year, establishing a partnership with the International Lunar Observatory Association (ILOA) in 2012, becoming the first ever private company to demonstrate a fully operational commercial lander (their MTV-1X) in December 2014 and unveiling their robotic rocket architecture, as well as plans for regular moon deliveries in July 2017, Moon Express appears to be well on their way to fulfilling their promise by the end of 2018.

The company made plans to launch in late 2017 before being pushed back to this year. However, they’re still optimistic. “It’s definitely going to be next year”, Chairman Naveen Jain stated back in 2017, in a TV interview with CNBC. “We are in the final stretches of it. And as you can imagine it’s rocket science,”. Rocket Lab, the company producing the electron booster that will take Moon Express’ lander to the moon delayed their flight test to early this year. But with so much already achieved, Mr Jain and crew are confident. “And when we launch and land on the moon, not only (do) we become the first company to do so, we actually symbolically become the fourth superpower”.

Aside from titular prospects are monetary ones, with a $20 million reward to follow their accomplishment. Moon Express is competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE, which yields a financial reward for the first private firm to land on the moon, travel 500 meters and transmit HD video back to Earth. Though Moon Express hasn’t yet revealed a launch date, the deadline for Google’s Lunar XPRIZE is March 2018. However, the company’s main priority is just getting to the moon and back successfully. “I really believe that lunar is going to become like our eighth continent”, Jain told CNBC. “We are going to have a permanent presence there, we are going to have internet there and we are going to be able to communicate just like we communicate from here to even Australia”.

Rocket Lab’s experimental Electron booster rocket is set to launch between the 20th and 29th of January. If the flight is successful, Moon Express are in the clear to be the first private company to land on the moon.

Blood-soaked body of ‘James Bond-style’ private eye who conned the fund to find Maddie McCann out of £300,000 is found at his Surrey mansion

The blood-soaked body of a private detective who probed the disappearance of Maddie McCann has been found at his Surrey mansion.

Mystery surrounds the death of Kevin Halligen, 56, who is said to have presented himself as a ‘cloak-and-dagger, James Bond-style spy’. Police today confirmed to MailOnline today that a probe has been launched into the circumstances.

Halligen took over the private investigation into the McCann case in March 2008 but was later accused of conning the family fund out of £300,000.  

It is believed he was found at the home he shared with his long-term girlfriend. There is no suggestion that she was involved in his death. Sources said the house was ‘covered in blood’. 

Kevin Halligen, 56, pictured, was found dead in a Surrey mansion. Police have launched an investigation into the death which is being treated as 'unexplained', a spokesman said

A spokesman for Surrey Police said today: ‘We were called to an address in Cobbett Hill Road, Normandy, Guildford, on Monday following a report of a man in his 50s having been taken unwell, who subsequently died.’

His death is being treated as unexplained but a source who knew the Dublin-born debt-ridden private eye say he was ‘a boozer’ and ‘drink was inevitably his downfall.’

Former associates of Halligen described him as a heavy drinker. One ex-colleague told MailOnline: ‘The house was covered in blood but apparently that was from Kevin falling down so much.

‘His body is now in the morgue. The police are looking into it.’

Defence consultant Tim Craig-Harvey, a former associate of Halligen, wrote online: ‘The lies and alcohol finally caught up with him.’

Another source told MailOnline: ‘He died at his girlfriend’s place near Guildford, a miserable pathetic death caused by alcohol.’

The McCanns hired Halligen’s firm in a bid to boost the search for Maddie after failing to come up with any plausible leads one year after she went missing.

They agreed a £500,000 fee with Oakley International, which was described by a source close to the family as ‘extremely secretive’ but ‘absolutely the best’.

Halligen took over the private investigation into the McCann case in May 2008 but was later accused of conning the family fund out of £300,000

Kate and Gerry McCann were initially impressed by Dublin-born Halligen, believing he ‘was in a different league’ to other private investigators.

He boasted of employing ex-FBI, CIA and Special forces officers while offering undercover surveillance and intelligence gathering in Portugal.

The detective even said he could provide satellite imagery and details of telephone traffic from the night Madeleine disappeared.

But within a year, questions began to emerge about Oakley and Halligen in particular.

Researchers claimed that the firm had not looked into hundreds of calls made to a special hotline – while specialists found that their bills were unpaid.

The promised satellite images also allegedly turned out to have been grabbed from Google Earth.

Six months into the highly-paid assignment, the McCanns were growing increasingly concerned about Halligen.

A family friend said: ‘He had this sense of cloak-and-dagger, acting as if he were a James Bond-style spy.

‘The McCanns found him hard to deal with, because he was forever in another country and using different phones. He promised the earth but it came to nothing.’

The contract was terminated early after £300,000 had been paid to Halligen.

Kate recalled: “Oakley’s proposal and overall strategy were streets ahead of all the others we’d considered and the company came highly recommended.” 

Initially Kate and heart doctor Gerry, 49, from Rothley, Leicestershire, were impressed with Halligen’s work with Kate writing: ‘There is little doubt that progress was being made.’

But the couple later started to have grave concerns and decided to sack him in September 2008 terminating his £500,000 contract. 

Kate recalled: ‘It was quite acrimonious and unfortunately that was not the end of it.’ 

Several months later investigators sub contracted by Halligen cane forward demanding payment for his services which they hadn’t received. 

Kate said: ‘We were upset that, although a lot of hard work had been done on Madeleine’s behalf, it seemed money provided by her fund might not ever have reached the people who had earned it.’ 

MailOnline understands that relations broke down after the detective’s team discovered he was enjoying a lavish lifestyle, staying in the best hotels and eating at the top restaurants in London – all at the expense of the Find Madeleine fund.

Former doctor Kate, 49, now a medical worker previously told how the family had suffered ‘a particularly bad experience’ with Halligen, who she knew as Richard. She described the ordeal he put them through in her best seller 2011 book ‘Madeleine’. 

Colleagues said that far from being an expert in undercover operations, Halligen was ‘out of his depth’ with ‘no experience of such investigations.’

There is no suggestion that any former associates are involved in the death of Kevin Halligen.

After being sacked from the McCann investigation in 2009, Halligen was arrested in the UK and extradited to America on fraud charges for an unrelated case

He pleaded guilty to defrauding Trafigura, based in the Netherlands, who had hired him to help free two company executives arrested in Ivory Coast in 2006.

He received about $12 million to provide ‘security, intelligence and public relations’.

Trafigura gave Halligen an additional $2.1 million to ‘hire lobbyists and influence officials in the United States on Trafigura’s behalf’.

The next day, Halligen used nearly $1.7 million of that money to buy a large home with a swimming pool.

The Washington Post reported at the time: ‘Owners of Washington restaurants remember him spending thousands on long, boozy days and evenings. He traveled everywhere in a chauffeured Lincoln.’

One restaurant owner said he and his staff called Halligen ‘James Bond’ because of his stories of spy derring-do and his habit of tossing around huge sums of cash.

It is believed he was found at the home of his long-term girlfriend, which is among the private Henley Park gated community (pictured) in Guildford

His fraud conviction carried a maximum of 20 years in prison, but under federal sentencing guidelines he would serve no more than 41 months.

As he had been in custody awaiting trial for 42 months, he was freed and deported, returning to his birthplace of Dublin.

In 2014, Kevin Halligen made a rare public appearance, agreeing to be interviewed for a Channel 5 documentary – The McCanns and The Conman.

He denied that he misused money raised to find Madeleine. Answering claims that he spent the money on first class travel, luxury hotel suites and a chauffeur, he said: ‘It is gross distortion of what was actually happening.’

A source close to Kate and Gerry McCann said they had terminated their contract with Oakley international in September 2008 and had not had anything to do with Kevin Halligen since.

‘Clearly this is now a matter for the police and the Coroner’s office,’ the insider said. 

A close pal of Maddie’s parents said: ‘The man was a fantasist. He promised lots of things that never happened. 

‘He even claimed McCann spoke Clarence Mitchell was working for MI5!’ 

‘Kate and Gerry and Madeleine’s great uncle Brian Kennedy, who had brought him on board, were bitterny disappointed with him towards the end of his contract. 

‘They didn’t need the extra grief, they already had enough. ‘

In the end they took issue and had to withhold his final payment. He just ran away from his debts around the world.” 

The hunt for Madeleine McCann continues, more than 10-and-a-half years after her disappearance.

A team from Scotland Yard has been probing the case since 2011 at a cost to the British taxpayer of more than £11.3million. Portuguese police have lead status in the investigation.

In October 2017, the Home Office allocated an extra £154,000 to Scotland Yard to pursue a ‘critical line of inquiry’ and extend the search to the end of March 2018.

Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for Kate and Gerry McCann said today: ‘They had no further association with Kevin Halligen after the termination of his Oakley International contract nine years ago and under these circumstances they will not be commenting now. Clearly this is a matter for the police and coroner’s office.

Private investors buying electric power stations in Russia to mine cryptocurrency

The two power stations are in Perm Region, on the western slopes of the Middle Ural Mountains, and in the neighboring Republic of Udmurtia. The facilities will be used to create a data center and a center for cryptocurrency mining, the newspaper reported. The stations were reportedly sold for about 160 million rubles (about US$3 million).

The reported new owner of the power stations, businessman Aleksey Kolesnik, has indirectly confirmed the acquisition, but said that cryptocurrency mining will only be possible after Russia adopts the relevant legislation.

Russia currently has no laws on digital money. The government is mulling over how to best regulate cryptocurrencies, with Deputy Finance Minister Aleksey Moiseev suggesting in December that mining bitcoin and other forms of online money would be illegal, but buying them or trading them would remain within the law.

There is no single opinion about cryptocurrencies in Russia. Some call them money surrogates, and their issuance is of concern as the turnover of the currency in Russia is a criminal offense. Other deputies say that cryptocurrencies are a way of bypassing Western sanctions and have even suggested building a town for cryptocurrency mining.

President Vladimir Putin has ordered the government to create legislation governing the status of bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies, mining, and initial coin offerings, as well as defining everything that relates to digital money, by July.

Project Veritas: Twitter Ready to Give Trump’s Private DMs to DOJ



 


A Project Veritas undercover investigation has revealed a senior network security engineer at Twitter stating that his company is “more than happy” to turn over the private communications and deleted tweets of President Donald Trump to the Department of Justice. If true, it is yet unknown whether Twitter is voluntarily disclosing this sensitive information or acting under a court order. Twitter is currently in the midst of defending itself from left-leaning criticism that President Trump hasn’t been removed from the enormous media platform for violations of Twitter’s Terms of Service.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Clay Haynes has been employed by Twitter since September 2016. On January 3, 2018, he met with a Project Veritas undercover journalist (UCJ) at Stookeys Club Moderne in San Francisco. Using a hidden video camera, the Veritas UCJ captures Haynes stating that “we’re more than happy to help the DOJ with their little investigation” of President Trump.

When prompted by the UCJ, Mr. Haynes provides additional details, “Basically, giving them every single tweet that he’s posted. Even the ones he’s deleted, any direct messages, any mentions…”

“…he’s dangerous, I don’t like him and he’s a terrible human being and I want to get rid of him,” the self-described bleeding-heart liberal Haynes says in the video about President Trump. “In fact, we had internal reviews about that…”

On January 7, 2018, James O’Keefe himself went undercover with Haynes at Morton’s Steakhouse in San Francisco to confirm if Twitter was working with the Department of Justice to hand over Trump’s tweets and DMs. When pressed about looking at Donald Trump’s messages, Haynes explained “We have a subpoena process for that very reason.” The conversation continued:

James O’Keefe: “Are you working with DOJ currently on that?”

Clay Haynes: “I can’t comment, even if I knew, I wouldn’t comment.”

“The fact is, even if Haynes was just speculating about helping Justice, his admission shows a clear and dangerous political bias at the highest levels of Twitter,” says Project Veritas founder and President James O’Keefe in the video.

“The question is: by Twitter giving private information about the President to the Justice Department, are they breaking the law, betraying a trust, following an official request or satisfying a political agenda by leading a crusade against the President.”

Describing himself as the bouncer of the network, Mr. Haynes also details the level of information Twitter retains in its databases about their hundreds of millions of users.

The Project Veritas Twitter investigation is the fourth installment of its American Pravda series. In Part I, Veritas disclosed that CNN’s Russia coverage is driven by ratings and a political agenda, but in reality, using the words of CNN Political Commentator Van Jones, is just a “nothing burger.” Part II disclosed a political bias at The New York Times which forced executive responses and an immediate change of their social media policy. Part III exposed political bias at The Washington Post and brought to light that the far-reaching narratives of the paper’s editorial board are not rooted in the factual findings of their subject-matter expert reporters. Project Veritas will be releasing additional Twitter-related videos over the next several days.

Mr. O’Keefe has just completed a book about this series entitled “AMERICAN PRAVDA: My fight for Truth in the Era of Fake News.” The book will be released by St. Martin’s Press on January 16, 2018.

Update: At 2:42, we mistakenly stated that the meeting occurred on January 3, 2017. The meeting actually occurred on January 3, 2018.

How Israel allows private US institutions to abuse and drug Israeli children

Marianne Azizi writes:

Private American institutions are abusing Israeli children for profit, causing irreparable emotional and psychological damage to them

It is a rare moment to capture on video: this brave young girl agreed to give her testimony. She was on the run from the authorities, escaping back to her family for the 50th time.

The emotional torture of losing a child to the authorities for profit cannot be understated, but through the eyes of the child one can see it is hell on earth. Once upon a time she was a happy child, home with her siblings, but with no idea of how fast she was about to have to grow up.

Now she’s exhausted – fighting her need to sleep. It could be the drugs she is forced to take, or the effort to fight them.

Aged only 13 years, her life can now be summed up in one word: survival.

Incarcerated since she was 10, this little girl has fought the authorities, running away time after time.

With a mixture of vulnerability and a streak of defiance, she is finally warm and safe. But not for long. She must be returned to the police very soon. It is a golden opportunity to film her testimony. Her short life in Israel has turned into a fight for her freedom.

… the perpetrators – social workers and a judiciary which has decided against all the facts that this child is better in the care of the private institutions who profit $5,000 a month for keeping her away from normality.

She talks of her dreams to see the outside world before it is too late, and they lock her in some closed place for years to come.

It was scary, she says, to run away at 10. But after almost 50 times, she is handling it better and managing easier. This time she was outside the institution for nearly six hours, and was found by a family member, freezing cold and hungry, but free.

The testimony is taken by an Israeli lawyer. Time is short. It is impossible to prepare her, and help her feel safe enough to get all the information he wants and needs. He knows the perpetrators – social workers and a judiciary which has decided against all the facts that this child is better in the care of the private institutions who profit $5,000 a month for keeping her away from normality. She is just a number – one out of more than 10,000 children forcibly taken from their parents in Israel annually.

All this child needs is love, and a hug. That is only a memory for her these days. She is not comfortable with men – and avoids questions of her being hurt or “tampered” with. She refuses to answer – yet her body language says otherwise.

She is asked questions regarding all the institutions that have tried to manage her.

“It hurt a lot when they held me down on the floor and stood on my back,” she recalls. “Once they made my face bleed when I was hit,” she adds.

She is cautious, but one senses she also knows this could be the first and last chance to speak to someone she doesn’t consider “the enemy”.

The girl describes how the Israeli police and social workers who snatched her from school filled her head with stories of how dangerous her family was.

To get to the root of the problem – why she hates being incarcerated – they filled her with more medication which may have long lasting effects.

The isolation room she describes is not the first time a child has talked about. In the short clip above, she talks of a room where she is locked up. Her food is passed through to her. Imagine a child of 10 locked away, terrified and without her native language. She is not an Israel-born girl. She barely understood what was being said to her. Banging on the door and screaming for help resulted in more “holdings” and punishments. There were no toilet facilities and she is embarrassed when asked how she handled her needs.

She has received little or no education. She is now able to speak Hebrew, but cannot read or write in her native language. At the tender age of just 10, she was medicated with various drugs. Three years later, the court decided the best option is to increase the drugs even more. To get to the root of the problem – why she hates being incarcerated – they filled her with more medication which may have long lasting effects.

She is streetwise now. She hides the pills under her tongue whenever possible and throws them away. She doesn’t know what they are, but instinctively knows they are bad for her.

Dreaming of life with her mother, father and siblings, she goes on to say she does not expect a normal life, as they want to lock her in a secure, closed facility.

Israel’s welfare authority takes over 10,000 children a year from their homes. At least 50 per cent of them do not need to be removed, says ex-chief executive of the welfare authority Yosi Silman. While child abuse by private institutions is well known to the legal community, lawyers fight every day to rescue children;

She explains in the extended video that she was strapped to beds, fed intravenously and physically abused.

The lawyer at times is overcome with emotion when filming her. He is powerless to help her. The evidence is overwhelming. She wants to go home. There was no reason to take her at all. Despite countless hearings and appeals, the welfare authority will not admit it was wrong. Its actions have thrust a young girl into an alternative reality.

Israel’s welfare authority takes over 10,000 children a year from their homes. At least 50 per cent of them do not need to be removed, says ex-chief executive of the welfare authority Yosi Silman.

She is among thousands and thousands who once were playing with dolls and toys – and then putting on make-up to prepare yet another escape from the cruelty of institution staff who appear to have no training in how to deal with children.

The money rolls in – over one million Israeli shekels (about $293,000) made on this poor girl. Has society lost the ability to stand in this child’s shoes and stop what is a preventable act of child snatching and abuse?

What have we become in 2018, that funding is given to these American Institutions who act with impunity against children?

The full video will be sent to law-enforcement agencies in the USA but there is little optimism that anything will be done in Israel or internationally to stop this daily abuse of children. Only the public can exert pressure.

Meir Givati, an Israeli lawyer specialising in juvenile matters, commented:

I handle cases like this every day, and it seems that once children have been taken, the authorities don’t know what to do afterwards. More often than not, the kids are drugged and we cannot get the data on the long-term damage it does to them. Once children are taken, the road back for return to parents is a long one, often taking many years. By then the bonds may have been broken in families who were loving and responsible. It is devastating what is happening here.

The Schusterman Foundation mentioned in this video was contacted for comment, but did not respond. However, coincidentally, after a sample of video was sent, the authorities in Israel claimed the girl did not mean what she said in the video. This is another common tactic used in hearings.

TRUMP WHITE HOUSE WEIGHING PLANS FOR PRIVATE SPIES TO COUNTER “DEEP STATE” ENEMIES






TRUMP WHITE HOUSE WEIGHING PLANS FOR PRIVATE SPIES TO COUNTER “DEEP STATE” ENEMIES


December 5th, 2017

Via: The Intercept:

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering a set of proposals developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer — with assistance from Oliver North, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal — to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the White House with a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials and others familiar with the proposals. The sources say the plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering “deep state� enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Trump’s presidency.

The creation of such a program raises the possibility that the effort would be used to create an intelligence apparatus to justify the Trump administration’s political agenda.

“Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him,� said a former senior U.S. intelligence official with firsthand knowledge of the proposals, in describing White House discussions. “It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books,� this person said, meaning the intelligence collected would not be shared with the rest of the CIA or the larger intelligence community. “The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.�
