Understanding the corruption scandal in FIFA and what it may mean to global issues.

***Fundraising status - We are still at a deficit of $140 needed by the first of July.  We ask that if you have benefited in any way by our work, and can afford it, that you please help us reach that goal before the first of July, by donating anything you can to our efforts, at the pay pal button off to the right of the blog.  God bless you all who have supported us for these past 6 years.   We are eternally grateful for that gracious support both financially and encouraging us on our path of truth seeking.  
There is definitely no question that we live in very very interesting times. 

Vatic Note: Is this just another small step in the cabal's movement into globalizing our planet?  Notice the investigation was instigated by the United States, and it was the Swiss that took it over and the Russian News reporting it.  Well, who controls the US?  Right, the khazar international bankers.  Notice, also, that Switzerland is the home of the Rothschilds BIS, which is the bankers bank. Then notice also who controls Russia and has ever since the revolution, that in 1917 was financed by those very same bankers, so those are the ones that control Russia and thus, the news..

That makes me question why they have done this?  They are not investigating the corruption in the global banking system or markets manipulations, and no one has been arrested for those multi-billion dollar crimes, so why is this being made into a big deal?  We tried to post a second article with this one indicating what the real reason was for the investigation and arrests, but we are not able to get the text up on the blog.  How strange?  So we simply posted the link below this article that gives the salient facts about the arrests.  You have to go to the link to read it. 

What you will learn is the involvement of the banks in the bribery and money laundering.  And the same people own the banks that are also owners of the press, and in control of all 3 countries mentioned.  Yet there is no mention of any bankers being arrested.  Now how strange is that?  Why was Switzerland the place of the investigation?  They "said" it was because they are the headquarters for the group, and that is true, but what does that have to do with anything?

It also talks about the marketing companies bribing the officials.  Did the owners of the FIFA get tired of paying bribes?  Are they also affiliated with the marketing companies?  There is a hint that maybe the case, and if true, then the international khazar zionist mafia, that owns everything, may have gotten tired of paying off the bribes to individuals who are possibly goyim, It certainly does caste doubt on the real reason for all of this that has been  going on for years.  

FIFA bombshell: World football gurus are arrested for corruption in Switzerland

FIFA bombshell: World football gurus are arrested for corruption in Switzerland. 55345.jpeg
World football gurus are arrested for corruption in Switzerland; a Brazilian is in the middle- The Swiss police made a surprise and film-worthy operation and arrested for corruption in one of Zurich's luxury hotels, 14 people, nine leaders of Fifa-five international sports marketing executives.
Police raided a five star hotel and made the arrests. The former president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), Jose Maria Marin, is one of the prisoners. The FIFA president Joseph Blatter, is not among the prisoners, and it is denied he is under US investigation.
FIFA is under two separate investigations: one US and one from Switzerland.
The prisoners can be extradited to the United States. The Swiss Federal Department of Justice said it was questioning 10 leaders on the vote to choose the headquarters of the World Cup in 2018 and 2022. An official note of the country's Attorney General said that criminal proceedings have been opened on the case.
Delegates from nearly all the football associations around the world are in Zurich for the FIFA Congress, scheduled for this Friday (28/05), in which Joseph Blatter will try to get his fifth term as president of the organization.
The charges were based on an investigation by the FBI, the American federal police, which began in 2011 and suggest widespread corruption in FIFA for 20 years, involving a dispute over the right to host the World Cup of Russia (2018) and Qatar (2022), as well as marketing and televising contracts. Blatter's rival in the election, Saudi Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, commented to the British broadcaster BBC: "Today is a sad day for football. It is a story in progress, details of which are still appearing."

Sources of American justice say that 14 people linked to FIFA will be indicted for crimes such as fraud, money laundering and extortion. They would be the quoted Webb (Cayman Islands), deputy chief executive officer and president of CONCACAF; Eugenio Figueredo (Uruguay), which also includes the executive vice president of the committee and until recently was president of Conmebol; Jack Warner (Trinidad and Tobago), former vice-president of FIFA and former president of CONCACAF, previously accused of numerous ethical violations; Julio Rocha (Nicaragua), President of the Nicaraguan Federation; Costas Takkas; Rafael Esquivel; Nicolás Leoz, former president of Conmebol; and the Brazilian José Maria Marin, former president of the CBF.
Another already identified is Eduardo Li, president of the Costa Rican Federation. After being apprehended, the official was conducted by police along with his luggage and immediately left the hotel through a side door. In addition to the leaders, five marketing executives will also be indicted.

 The Swiss Justice released a statement informing that the six accused were arrested and await extradition proceedings to the US. He said US officials accuse those suspected of receiving millions of dollars in bribes. The choices of Russia and Qatar as the headquarters for the next two World Cups (2018 and 2022) can be the focus of investigations.
Joseph Blatter is not among the accused, but his name appears in the list of investigated by the police. According to information from American TV "CNN", the FBI was already working on the case for about three years.
The surprise operation was carried out by plainclothes police, who went to the counter in Hotel Baur au Lac and already in possession of the keys, went up to the rooms of the suspects, making arrests.
All the accused answer, among others, to wire fraud, extortion and money laundering.
The scandal of the arrests in Zurich can compromise Blatter's re-election bid for the presidency of FIFA. Fourteen people - nine leaders of Fifa and five executives of sports marketing - are accused of crimes such as extortion and money laundering. The three main lines of research are:
1 - the alleged payment of bribes of the organizers of the tournaments of Russia, in 2018 and in Qatar in 2022, FIFA leaders to ensure that countries were chosen as headquarters.
2 - overpricing of CBF's contract with a supply sporting goods company.
3 - the purchase of broadcast rights for sports marketing agencies in the following championships: Copa America Centennial, editions of the Copa America, Libertadores of America and Brazil Cup (tournament Brazilian clubs).
The investigation accuses sports marketing companies of paying bribes to confederations, original owners of those rights. The American research has been conducted for years by the FBI and covers corruption in Fifa for the past twenty years. The corruption scheme would have moved over $ 150 million. All prisoners will be extradited to the United States.
US Department of Justice says that six accused have already pleaded guilty, including Joseph Hawilla, who is already condemned in the process and owns the sports marketing firm Traffic, negotiating rights with CONMEBOL competitions, Concacaf and the CBF.
The prisoners face up to 20 years in prison each. According to the Attorney General of Justice of the United States, Loretta Lynch, the next step of the process is the extradition of the prisoners, accused of corruption and embezzlement of around 470 million.
But the attorney Kelly Currie, New York, United States, added that the extradition process is just the starting point of the investigation into the corruption scandal in FIFA. "I want to be clear that today is only the beginning of our efforts. We want to continue with the collaboration of all who are willing to work with us in continuing efforts to get the football in this scheme," he said.
The reports released by the American Justice include 14 defendants - nine directors and five entrepreneurs - and were executed in a joint action of the FBI and the Swiss police. "We thank the authorities who made the arrests. The next step is that the defendants come to the United States, and we will ask the Swiss authorities to transfer custody," said Attorney General Lynch.
According to investigations, the funds diversion charges extend for over 20 years.
The United States Department of Justice asserts that the defendants, as well as FIFA itself, are involved in irregularities in the sale of commercial rights tournaments, contracts of sports marketing and television companies. (With information from international news agencies).

Understanding the corruption scandal in FIFA

Understanding the corruption scandal in FIFA. 55366.jpeg
ZURICH / SWITZERLAND - FIFA, the supreme body of world football, is the subject of various investigations, one US and one from Switzerland. Nine leaders of FIFA were arrested in Switzerland this week after being charged with suspicion of corruption involving an amount of up to $ 150 million.
Hours later, Swiss authorities announced that they would do their own research on the process of choosing Cups of host countries, 2018 (Qatar) and 2022 (Russia). The Swiss police entered the FIFA headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, and seized electronic evidence.
Why is this important?
FIFA is the body responsible for world football. In recent years, it suffered allegations of corruption, particularly in the process of choosing the 2022 World headquarters - the winner was Qatar. In December 2014, FIFA decided not to release its own investigation of corruption - which, according to the organization, said the selection process was free. The report's author, American Michael Garcia, resigned.
The World Cup generates billions of dollars in revenue. The arrests and the investigation cast doubt on the transparency and honesty of the selection process in recent tournaments.
How come Brazil appears in research?
Three Brazilians are implicated in the corruption scheme, according to the US Department of Justice. One of them is the former president of the CBF José Maria Marin - the note from the Department of Justice does not detail the suspicions against him. The CBF was expressed about the investigation through a statement saying "wait, responsibly, its conclusion without any judgment to previously condemn or declare innocent."
A US court says José Hawilla, owner of the Traffic Group, the largest sports marketing agency in Latin America, confessed to the crimes. The Traffic owns broadcast rights, sponsorship and promotion of sporting events and players, and media companies in Brazil. Consulted by the report, the attorney J. Hawilla, José Luis de Oliveira Lima, said the owner of Traffic "supports the investigation and provided clarifications due to US authorities" and is released in the United States.
The third Brazilian investigated by the FBI is José Lazaro Margulies, owner of Valente companies Corp. and Somerton Ltd., both linked to sports broadcasts. A statement released by the US Justice further states that it investigates alleged payment and receipt of bribes in a sponsorship "of the CBF for a large company US sportswear."
The US court also cites the Brazil Cup, organized by CBF, as one of the competitions in which there might have been corruption in negotiating broadcast and marketing rights. The World Cup 2014, held in Brazil, is not mentioned specifically in the document.
How would the scheme?
The complaint states that from 1991 to date, FIFA officials were involved in various crimes, including fraud, bribery and money laundering. The court states that two generations of leaders have used their positions to make partnerships with sports marketing executives who prevented others from having access to contracts and maintained the business for them through tuition fees.
Most of the schemes, according to the Justice Department, involves receiving bribes from marketing executives to marketing of media rights and marketing of various sports competitions - including Copa America, Copa Libertadores and Brazil.
 Who are the accused?
Football key figures were arrested in Latin America, North America and the Caribbean. In addition to the Brazilian involved, the president of CONCACAF, Jeffrey Webb, was arrested, seen as a likely successor to the organization's president, Joseph Blatter.
Another key figure is Charles "Chuck" Blazer, FIFA's former representative in the US, who apparently became an FBI informant. He pleaded guilty and has returned $ 1.9 million.
Joseph Blatter was arrested?
No. The FIFA president - and most powerful man in world football - is not among those mentioned in US indictments. But the American justice states that they were involved in the service of FIFA - of which he is president. So far, he did not comment. Blatter is likely to be re-elected to the presidency of the organization on Friday.
Recently, he was forced to deny rumors that he was avoiding travel to the US because he feared arrest.
Why were they arrested?
The FBI has been investigating Fifa for three years. The investigations were initiated because of the process of choosing the countries headquarters of the cups 2018 and 2022 (Russia and Qatar) but was expanded to analyze the FIFA agreements over the past 20 years.
The accusation of the US Department of Justice says that corruption was planned in the US, even when it was done elsewhere. The use of US banks to transfer money is a key part of the investigation.
Why Switzerland?
It is the headquarters of FIFA - the registration of the organization as a charity makes it pay reduced taxes. Switzerland is known as a country where non-transparent companies are welcome, especially in relation to taxes. But its extradition agreement with the US is clear: people involved in crimes may be sent to the United States.
Apparently, US authorities pounced when FIFA's annual congress made everyone gather in a country that would not put obstacles to extradition.
The Swiss also seem to be going after Fifa, with three ongoing investigations - including one announced hours after the arrests, on the choice of the host cities of the next World Cup.
How much money is involved?
A lot, supposedly.
The US complaint alleges corruption involving US $150 million, and this does not include other transactions around the world. An earlier report on corruption in the Caribbean, leaked, claims that bribes of $ 40,000 were paid to officials in envelopes full of cash.
Almost all income comes from the FIFA World Cup, the most lucrative sporting event in the world - surpassing the Olympics. Last year's World Cup cost Brazil about $4 billion, and FIFA profited over $ 2 billion. The cost of the next two World Cups should be higher: the World Cup in Qatar should cost more than $ 6 billion.
Only competing to host the World Cup already has a huge cost: the British FA spent 21 million pounds to run for the 2018 World Cup.
The Cup of Russia and Qatar will be held in other countries?
This is unlikely, but not impossible. The US complaint deals with corruption in the past - the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, for example, is mentioned - but not future venues. The Swiss investigations shall be fruitful in this regard, but we would need to have overwhelming evidence to make the election again.
Qatar faces complaints of mistreatment of immigrants working in the World Cup works.
Changing the Russian Cup would be difficult. Few countries have stadiums, infrastructure and money to host the event in such a short time. In that event an option would be Germany, which hosted the 2006 World Cup.
Qatar is much more vulnerable and has been flooded with complaints and allegations of corruption since it was chosen to host. But even after seeing several corruption scandals, an unprecedented change of a summer tournament to winter and a scandal over deaths of migrant workers, there are chances that they still Host the most important football competition in the world.
But according to the US Attorney Kelly T. Currie, the investigation will not stop there.
"After decades, according to the complaint, the blatant corruption, organized international football needs a fresh start - a new chance for their institutions to make an honest oversight and support a beloved sport around the world. Let me be clear: this complaint is not the last chapter of our investigation, "he said.
In turn, Russia complained about the US stance with FIFA, "the world judge". The Russian Foreign Ministry said the arrests of leaders of FIFA and football marketing executives appeared to be an illegal US attempt to impose its laws on foreign states.
"Without going into details about the allegations that have been raised, they point to the fact that this is another case of illegal extraterritorial application of US laws," the Foreign Ministry of Russia said in a statement on its website.
The Russian Ministry also said it hoped the arrests are not used to tarnish the image of FIFA and not put a shadow over its decisions, including decisions of a personal nature.
"Once again, we ask that Washington stop trying to establish itself as a judge beyond its borders, and follow international legal procedures," the Russian Foreign Ministry stated.

(VN: its a lot more complicated than it appears on the surface.  I am still trying to determine why this is happening now, when so much real corruption on an international level is happening around the world, and yet  no one is doing anything about it.  No one is in jail for manipulating markets, etc. To understand this better, this is a must read.)

This comment is not intended to be insolent. It is a "suggestion" that as these entities "appear" to have nothing in common with mankind, it means they came from elsewhere in the universe. I believe Michael Tsarion has indicated that a "group" of evil entities were chased across the universe and "accidentally" ended up on planet earth. ...the link is...www.librarising.com/cosmology/atlanticrevisited.html.......IF, the "entities" in question wee the "forebears" of the Serpent people, then Khazaria is not their home and, the grossly abused peoples of Ukraine are under no obligation to tolerate their presence. The Serpent people/khazar zionists, whatever name is used, need to be EXPUNGED from this beautiful Planet Earth, ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Anonymous, I am sorry you had trouble getting your comment up. Either its a glitch in googles blogspot system, or its simply a continuation of the regular harassment we experience on a regular basis. I am sure you can imagine how much the cabal hates to read comments like yours on a blog like this. So, whatever the reason all 7 of your comments came up and I had to delete all but one, since they were a duplicate of your first comment.

ADDITIONALLY, I would like to say that I wholeheartedly agree with you that these psychopaths with no humanity, should be purged from this planet and sent back to where they came from. It does not matter to me where, rather, what they are doing to the people of this planet is truly all that matters and its the primary reason they should be thrown out of here.
