Paul “The Vulture” Singer Targets Hyundai

Greg Palast 

While Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are playing double-or-nothing with the survival of Koreans, Trump’s billionaire sugar-daddy is taking advantage of political upheaval to attempt a seizure of one South Korea’s major employers: Hyundai Motor. Paul Singer, known as The Vulture, is mounting an attack on the auto-maker known for providing life-time union-wage employment for workers. Putting worker welfare on a par with profits infuriates Singer. He sees them as fat targets ripe for takeover and tearing apart.

In our film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, we explain how Singer, his Vulture Fund called “Elliott Management,” and Singer’s cronies took over the General Motors auto parts operation (Delphi) — then closed almost every factory, ended all union jobs, and reopened the factories in China.

Here is my interview with Korea’s main newspaper, Chosun Ilbo.

Singer’s goons have said they, “have a file on Greg Palast.” As you can see, I have a file on HIM… …more

The “Steele Dossier” on … Me:
Why I won’t praise the FBI lie & spy machine

Do we hate Trump so much, we’ll cheer FBI perjury, cheer the monstrous FISA star chamber and the surveillance horror show exposed by Ed Snowden?

Let me be clear: Despite Rep. Devin Nunes’ assertions, nothing in his memo — none of this FBI misconduct, however unacceptable — undermines Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Trump and gang.

But, like it or not, that creepy little GOP shill Nunes, revealed facts that should scare us. First, FBI agents failed to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court that the file it used to justify spying on a US citizen, the “Steele dossier,” was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

True, the FBI dropped a footnote about the source coming from a “political entity,” a fuzzy cover-our-ass comment that failed to state known partisan bias. But failure to tell the court the whole truth and nothing but the truth is perjury.

Ironically, Nunes himself commits the same perjury, by failing to mention …more

Progressives should not be cheerleaders for the FBI when it shaves the truth, even if the bureau is now portrayed as Donald Trump’s enemy. This is, after all, the FBI infamous for the wiretap of Martin Luther King Jr., the broader COINTELPRO operation, and, recently, smearing antiwar and environmental activists with claims of Russian influence.

Like it or not, that creepy little GOP shill Rep. Devin Nunes is stating a fact when he writes that FBI agents failed to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court that …more

The Nunes Memo And The Regressive Progressive Rhetoric It Spawned

By Greg Palast with Dennis J. Bernstein

When the FBI applied to the rubber-stamp FISA court for a warrant to surveil Trump associate Carter Page they were more than a little economical with the truth. Basing their warrant request, in part, on information contained in the now-infamous Fusion GPS dossier, they omitted to mention that …more

Do we hate Trump so much we cheer the FBI, the monstrous secret FISA star chamber, and the surveillance horror show exposed by Snowden? When they come for you, will they use your own words of praise for Gestapo Lite?

The FBI should have disclosed to the court that the Steele dossier was originally paid for by Paul “The Vulture” Singer — who has a record of creating what James Comey himself calls “salacious and unverifiable” files on his enemies.

I know, Singer created a dossier on me. …more
