There is a sketchy casino on the edge of the America with some strange happenings. From the Bloomberg Article below:
“Its board members include James Woolsey, who ran the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in the early 1990s and was among national-security advisers to Trump’s presidential campaign. Former FBI director Louis Freeh and Ed Rendell, a former Pennsylvania governor and Democratic National Committee chairman, sit on an advisory committee, as does Haley Barbour, the ex-Mississippi governor and Republican National Committee chairman who’s now a prominent lobbyist.”:
A year later after Woolsey takes position on the advisory board, , this superstar casino in the middle of nowhere gets investigated for illegal labor practices
Have you ever seen a hotel this nice? Island population is 2,500, keep in mind. Clean Chinese money?
Remember back in the 1990s when Saipan was USA’s sweatshop? “Made in America”, but in third world conditions through legalese:
Who ran the CIA at the time? James Woolsey.
The Tan family of CMNI fame also donated to the Hillary Clinton in 2006. The Tan family apparently ran some sweatshops too. In my opinion. Not sure what the significance is, but it looks like if HRC won, Tans can keep business as usual?
Some opinions & thoughts on this. Saipan is obviously a major money laundering center that does not have the same visa restrictions on China as other US territories in my opinion. A shit ton of money makes its way out of China, through Hong Kong and Macao by rich Chinese aka ChiCom bootlickers and is laundered by this hotel in my opinion. That’s one reason why Macau had to exercise capital controls last year. Ex CIA director oversees the operation from afar and makes sure it runs smoothly. A year later, it’s investigated for illegal labor practices. Now this kind of thing is common on Saipan (they are not beholden to US labor laws). However, many Chinese “workers” (aka forced money mules, maybe prisoners or otherwise) were accidentally killed while constructing the casino and are apparently buried right where they fell. Is this a way to kill witnesses without any accountability? There was an FBI raid last year. What were the results of that ? Saipan has gotten in trouble before with labor disputes, but this seems a bit convenient. Saipan is also the capital of Birth Tourism & considering Chinese don’t need a visa to visit, serves as a bargaining chip. Haul over the Chinese money and get backdoor US citizenship in return, or just get killed in a “labor accident” and never be heard from again. Either is possible, depending on who you are.
Does anybody have any thoughts about this? Is it just an innocuous casino in the middle of the Pacific that just happens to be “advised” by ex-CIA, with such close ties to China and The Swamp, and as very few regulations and oversight. Just something I noticed I wanted to mention. In my opinion. Does anybody else find this a bit odd?
tldr: shady casino in middle of pacific “advised” by ex-CIA with ties to China & The Swamp.
“A U.S. Senate committee has completed its work on a bill that would extend, by 10 years, the ability of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands to use foreign labor, according to CNMI Del. Gregorio Sablan. It would allow as many as 13,000 foreign workers in the CNMI for fiscal 2019.”
How convenient! That’s one way to get around the tightened borders. For all the huffing and puffing President Trump does about the border, and considering his knowledge of Casinos and alleged ties to the mob, his silence on this loophole in the Pacific is deafening. Why now? Why not when Tom DeLay was overseeing the plantation fifteen years ago?
“Later, DeLay would tell The Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin that the low-wage, anti-union conditions of the Marianas constituted “a perfect petri dish of capitalism. It’s like my Galapagos Island.”
Something else I’ve noticed as I was typing this….Frank Murkowki is the former governor and senator from Alaska and apparently wanted to shut this down a decade ago. However, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska (his daughter?) supports the Saipan workforce act mentioned above.
What do the Murkowskis all the way in Alaska care about what happens in CNMI? The positions taken by the elder Murkowski and the current Senator Murkowski seem to conflict each other. What the heck is going on here?
