THE GOODNESS OF THEIR HEART.>>OF COURSE THEY ARE. BUT

PIPELINE, IT’S A TERRIBLE IDEA FOR DEMOCRACY.>>AND GOOD
FOR ELIZABETH WARREN.

  1. It was mafia connected companies that got the contracts with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to clean up the debris after 9/11. Anthony Fontanetta and Mark Jakubek were executives at the Port Authority and found guilty of racketeering and bribery involving millions in stolen cash from federal aid for ground zero clean up. About 19 others plead guilty as well in this racketeering. The port authority has a history with organized crime however on 9/11 the Port Authority's records were destroyed because they were located in Tower 7. Owners of the construction company Peter Scalamandre & Sons were convicted of paying off members of the Lucchese crime family for labor racketeering prior to 9/11. Peter Scalamandre & Sons was later shut down working as sub contractors during the ground zero clean up. The major clean up companies used smaller contractors to carry out much of the work. Many of the smaller contractors like Peter Scalamandre & Sons were connected with the Italian Mafia.

    The major companies for the 9/11 clean up were the London AMEC subsidiary AMEC Construction, Bovis Lend Lease, Tully Construction and Turner Construction being funded with over 450 million for clean up. These larger companies used smaller sub contractors and many of these companies were tied with the Five Families and their associates. The subcontractors payments were in the range of 60 million of that 450 million in clean up aid. It is believed that about 63 million went to mafia connected construction and clean up companies. Salvatore Carucci is believed to be a Lucchese associate and is the owner of Seasons Contracting which received over 26 million for his company's clean up work. Allen Monchik who has been convicted of fraud worked as a consultant making calls hours after 9/11 to the port authority, asbetos companies and to mafia associates like former Lucchese boss Louis Daidone and mafia associate Noel Modica. The District Attorney's investigators tracked these calls while investigating corruption involved with these asbestos companies.

    On September 11, 2001 Donald Rumsfeld who was Jesuit educated from Georgetown ran the Department of Defense as Secretary of Defense, George Tenet who was also Jesuit educated from Georgetown ran the Central Intelligence Agency, and Michael Copps who was a Jesuit professor at Loyola University of New Orleans ran the Federal Communications Commission which regulates all broadcasting inside of the United States. The US armed forces, CIA, and FCC were all under the supervision of Jesuit alumni and professors. The real theft on 9/11 goes back to Franklin D Roosevelt and his Executive Order 6102 which criminalized the ownership of gold in the United States and demanded all gold to be handed in under the threat of fines and imprisonment. This gold was covertly held underneath the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. On 9/11 William Joseph McDonough was President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and was Jesuit educated from Georgetown and he oversaw this theft. After 9/11 the gold was removed from the FRBNY under the disguise of ground zero debris. The gold was then shipped out through the Port Authority and sent to London and Rome.

  2. Uhm, ETP, not TPP built the pipeline. TPP was the failed trade agreement.

    Energy Transfer Partners does not equal Trans Pacific Partnership.

  3. Remember, this is what happens when you let Socialism take control of your country. Yet for some reason, many on the left, and some on the right, fail to acknowledge this, and instead blame Capitalism. If we had a truly Free Market Capitalistic society, then the people, not the government and lobbyists, would have the power to make a change. Instead, we've become even more of Socialist/Corporatist society, where the government and the corporations decide what's best for the consumer, instead of the consumer deciding.

  4. F'n Christ! This fight was over back in Nov. 2012. Signed, sealed, and delivered. Protesting, as I said, during Standing Rock was a waste of Taxpayers money.

  5. This pretty much confirms that the law enforcement community in North Dakota was working FOR DAPL, and NOT for the citizens who pay their salaries. This is an all time record for government being openly for sale.

  6. The law that was passed was for illegal practices incurred by illegal activities from the pipeline. So it was a bribe to cover the illegal activities of DAPL not the protesters.

  7. "Petrol dollar crashes" USA exploited it's native lands for black gold as world ends USA control lol that should be the title of this

  8. speaking of money I love The Young Turks, but the thing that I don't love like is the debt California is in or that they have so many undocumented citizens

  9. Meanwhile California recently raise fuel tax prices by 12 cents and raised car registration fees… steal money from the overburdened Californians

  10. Build the wall around cenk please, keep Ana she's at least nice to look at, unless it's a see through wall, then go ahead.

  11. The US governement and private companies are systematically attacking native American lands for resources and have done so since the inception and breaking of treaties ever began until this day. Thanks to everyone helping any tribe for any cause; kind of restored a bit of my belief in humanity now that with todays technology it is no longer a hush hushed topic and advocacy for the honoring of the word of law is becoming what America should have been to begin with. Peace.

  12. No one forced North Dakota to bring in hundreds of law enforcement personnel to guard against peaceful protestors for months. They could have accomplished the same mission with two dozen officers, no need for water canons, no need for concussion grenades, no need for 24 hour areal surveillance, no need for MRAPS, snipers, acoustic weapons, radio frequency jammers, and gallons of mace. They chose to spend that money to suppress lawful demonstrations on behalf of an oil company, let them deal with the consequences of their budgetary shortfall.

    The fact that ETP is offering to pick up the tab means the police are not acting as public servants, but as private mercenaries. Folks can protest neo Nazis and Klansmen if they like, but this is REAL fascism going on in the country, and it's all the more dangerous because it goes on behind the scenes. What are the chances that this will be reported on CNN , Fox or in the Washington Post?

  13. This "donation" not only lets them bribe the state of North Dakota, but because they're calling it a donation they're going to get to write off some of their taxes as a result. So they're going to get taxed less, for committing bribery.

    On the plus side, they're laying the groundwork for a thriving, pike manufacturing industry when we start looking for a place to put their heads.

  14. I cant believe you didn't ask Jordan to comment on this? He's actually been there, as a journalist, his point of view is invaluable on the subject! And that channel could definitely use the exposure!

  15. How do you make trumptards understand that trump is NOT making America great again. How are these people so brainwashed, or just plain stupid. I don't get it.

  16. Do you really think it costs 15 million to hire private security for a protest? Pretty sure the police department didn't spend 15 million that day.

  17. Cenk, I would LOVE for you and your Young Turks to make HUGE donations to police departments all over the country. Will you do it or was it just chin music…as usual.

  18. Did you guys forget to mention that a big part of the expense incurred by the state, was the clean up of the tons of trash and garbage left behind by the squatters when they left?

  19. Just an update, the Sioux are called Lakota.. It's an old name they dropped like many other nations did to reclaim their heritage by using their own words and not French Spanish or English. Papago went back to Tohono O'odham and Yaqui are Yoeme.

  20. It's impossible for Ana to read a freaking quote without screwing it up. "Department of Emergency Services" not "department of energy services ". Jesus Christ and she gets paid to do this?

  21. Part of the purpose of protest IS to make something economically nonviable. You make it too expensive to do, and they won't do it. Accepting this money is essentially working around that. This is a major blow to the protest effort, and it's very much bullshit.

  22. ….. water cannons, and rubber bullets, and stun grenades (which have no fragments, but still have high explosive, and can still blow your arm off) because that is what they had at DAPL ….

  23. What Democracy? America isn't a democracy or a republic. America is an Oligarchy. Your vote doesn't matter, the wealthy rule. American democracy is just a facade. A way to placate the masses and make them think they matter.

  24. Cops don't rough up right wing protesters. Ever. Those sunsabitches SHOOT AT PEOPLE in a crowd and they aren't even stopped.

  25. By buying cops for security there is no chance of security being prosecuted for breaking the law as was so vividly shown.

  26. So…. The government is being compensated for this b.s…. why would they not "donate" to those who live there…. F the criminals in suits!

  27. What was the meaning of that snide comment by Ben Mankiewicz about Senator Warren at the end? I can't tell if he is really a progressive or just a frustrated stand-up comedian.

  28. Why is anyone surprised about this? This is how everything in government works now, give me donations and I will sell out the nation!

  29. Buying the cops AND the military??? I suggest a new police motto: "To protect and to serve whichever law pays us the most"

  30. Not a "bribe" at all. ETP just wanted to participate in some of the costs the state occurred as a result of the protest.
