    “FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried Sentenced to 25 Years”
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/ftx-founder-sam-bankman-fried-sentenced-to-25-years/ar-BB1kFZub?ocid=msedgntp&pc=DCTS&cvid=c185917383ca4bd4a13cfdb9d6244ea6&ei=16

    FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison for fraud tied to the collapse of his digital exchange, capping the onetime crypto king’s meteoric rise and fall.

    Less than two years ago, the moptop millennial hobnobbed with heads of state, soaked up Caribbean views from his $30 million penthouse and vowed to use his wealth to better humanity.

    A jury last year found the 32-year-old guilty of stealing billions of dollars from FTX customers and defrauding investors and lenders to his crypto investment firm Alameda Research.

    U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan, who also imposed more than $11 billion in financial penalties, said he weighed “the enormous harm he did, the brazenness of his actions, his exceptional flexibility with the truth and his apparent lack of any real remorse.”
    The judge said that if Bankman-Fried were at liberty, he was at risk of committing crimes in the future. “It’s not a trivial risk at all,” Kaplan said.

    Before he was sentenced, Bankman-Fried, standing with his hands clasped, told the judge that he was haunted everyday by what he had thrown away. “I was responsible for FTX, and its collapse is on me,” the FTX founder, wearing tan jail garb, said during a 20-minute statement.

    A lot of people were let down, he said, adding, “I’m sorry about that.”

    Federal prosecutors said Bankman-Fried committed one of the greatest financial frauds in U.S. history. Fueled by greed and hubris, he used other people’s money to fund his lavish lifestyle, make risky investments and pursue his political agenda, according to prosecutors.

    Prosecutors had asked Kaplan to sentence Bankman-Fried to 40 to 50 years in prison.

    Without a lengthy sentence, Bankman-Fried could commit more crimes, Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicolas Roos told the court. “If Mr. Bankman-Fried thought that mathematics would justify it, he would do it again,” Roos said.

    Bankman-Fried’s lawyers argued a sentence of no more than six years in prison was more appropriate, saying he still had much to offer to society. They pointed to his autism, his deep remorse and his charitable works as reasons for a lenient sentence.

    Marc Mukasey, his lawyer, told the judge that Bankman-Fried wasn’t a “ruthless financial serial killer” who sought to hurt people.

    “Sam Bankman-Fried does not make decisions with malice in his heart,” said Mukasey. “He makes decisions with math in his head.”

    Bankman-Fried, the son of Stanford Law School professors started FTX in 2019 with a fellow Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate. The company had a quick takeoff, riding a tide of growing popularity in crypto trading.

    Millions of customers joined his exchange, drawn to Bankman-Fried’s image as a shaggy-haired genius and to FTX commercials starring NFL star Tom Brady and comedian Larry David. As the exchange soared in value, Bankman-Fried crisscrossed the globe on private jets and hosted dinners with guests such as Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. He became a top political donor in Washington, holding himself out as a trustworthy figure seeking legislation to clarify the rules around crypto.

    That world came crashing down in early November 2022 after the crypto website CoinDesk published what purported to be a leaked Alameda balance sheet, causing a run on FTX customer funds. Soon after, the exchange filed for bankruptcy protection. The Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office charged Bankman-Fried a month later.

    During a monthlong trial in the fall, jurors heard testimony from three of Bankman-Fried’s top lieutenants, including his ex-girlfriend, who said the FTX founder directed them to commit crimes alongside him. Bankman-Fried took the unusual step of testifying in his own defense. He told jurors that he never committed fraud, yet he struggled under cross examination, saying dozens of times that he didn’t recall specifics.

    Kaplan said Thursday that Bankman-Fried committed perjury during his testimony, including when he told jurors that until fall 2022, he had no knowledge that Alameda had spent FTX customer deposits.

    In the weeks before the sentencing, Bankman-Fried’s supporters wrote letters to the judge, saying that his struggles with depression, autism and anhedonia—the inability to feel happiness—weigh in favor of a lighter sentence.

    Carmine Simpson, the ex-police officer, said that the FTX founder was a selfless person who adhered to his beliefs, even in jail. “Even though twelve out of every fourteen of Sam’s weekly meals are just undercooked rice, a scoop of disgusting-looking beans and week-old brown lettuce, Sam has stayed true to his commitment to not participate in the maltreatment of animals,” he wrote. Simpson pleaded guilty last year to sexual exploitation of a child, according to court records.

    Bankman-Fried’s mother, Barbara Fried, said in her letter to Kaplan that her son had sought to do good in the world from a young age. When he was 4 years old, she said, he tried to help a fallen toddler. He was precocious as well, she said, independently reading complex moral and philosophical literature in middle school. In high school, he counseled classmates who were depressed, despite battling depression himself, she said.

    “But this is not just a personal tragedy,” she wrote to the judge. “The ease with which we consign young lives with so much promise to the trash heap is a societal tragedy as well.”

    Prosecutors said Bankman-Fried’s fraud amounted to $10 billion in losses, placing him alongside the country’s most notorious white-collar criminals. They likened him to Bernie Madoff, the Manhattan financier who orchestrated a Ponzi scheme that led to $13 billion in losses. Madoff received a sentence of 150 years and died in prison at 82 in 2021.

    Current FTX Chief Executive John Ray said in a filing to the judge that customers are expected to be repaid the value of their claim on the date the exchange filed for bankruptcy protection. However, many cryptocurrencies have surged in value since that time, meaning customers will miss out on the financial gain, he said.

    One of the victims, Sunil Kavuri, told the judge that he lost money he was saving for a house and his children’s education.

    “It’s a continuous lie that we are all made whole,” said Kavuri, adding that he had spoken to many other victims.

    Lawyer Adam Moskowitz, who represents some FTX creditors, told Kaplan that Bankman-Fried had recently been helpful to his efforts.

    Kaplan said Thursday that in determining the sentence, he wasn’t weighing whether customers would get their money back.

    “A thief who takes his loot to Las Vegas and successfully bets the stolen money is not entitled to a discount on the sentence,” the judge said.

    (I honestly expect an appeal eventually)

    • Predictably, Sam will eventually be portrayed as the real victim.

      Hopefully, some of the other prisoners will kill him in prison after he screws the wrong people in some prison scam he inevitably comes up with.

      • Will that be overturned on appeal?

        Biden and the Democrats owe him a lot.
        Will there be a presidential pardon ?

        Stay tuned.

      • “, some of the other prisoners will kill him in prison”

        Won’t happen in club fed.
        He’ll get the Mike Milken treatment, gourmet meals, practice his tennis etc

    • SBF was sentenced to 25 (twenty five) years in prison for his financial fraud. Yes, the judge railed against him; his moral depravity, his lack of an ounce of remorse etc. It was nice theater.

      SBF will be out of jail in a few years, count on it. He is part of the class of people in the U.S. who are above the law. The U.S. Government had to make a big dog-and-pony show of what they call “justice” to satisfy the gullible. People will forget, move on to the next outrage then SBF will be as free as a bird.

      He will probably end up with a pardon from Trump if Trump gets sworn in in Jan. 2025. Trump has a history of handing out pardons to scumbags like SBF.

      • “SBF will be out of jail in a few years, count on it. ”

        Typically, these jwz who commit fraud , serve less than half their sentence.

      • ” a pardon from Trump if Trump gets sworn in ”

        Or Biden.

        If Trump had any spine and constitution, he’d dig up new charges and put him away for life.

      • Bingo. Contrary to the grift campaign from Kang Cyrus (whose now selling bibles – I wonder if they come with Scofield’s heretical commentaries), SBF will be out of jail in at most a few years. The system in not reformable. It will need to be burned to the ground altogether. Even full-blown sharia is preferable to this jew-run perverted shitshow. Under sharia an mega-thief like SBF would end up lacking both hands and feet, if not beheaded outright. There are no shortage of whites (like Mr. Tyson chickenshit) would should end up the same. They have it coming even more than most jews.

  2. The jews killed Christ. What a disingenuous piece of excrement. Jews are hated because of their behaviour, which is enshrined in the talmud.

    Remember to these people you are goyim, a beast or cattle and they own us as their slaves.

    Death to ZOG.

  3. “their behaviour, which is enshrined in the talmud.”

    I think it’s more genetic than anything.
    The talmud gives them justification.

    • That’s an interesting point. There is increasing evidence that long-term repeated behavior can actually modify one’s genetics to a degree – and behaviors practiced over many generations produce genetic tendencies that are passed down. The famous Chinese Imperial examination initially selected strictly on merit, but with the considerable benefits accruing to those selected over generations the descendants of imperial bureaucrats tended be advantaged to win the test over those coming off the street – over and above things like corruption and nepotism. Criminal mafias which have existed long enough have descendants who experience a similar genetic pre-disposition. While it’s an error to fall into genetic determinism, behavior (good and bad) has long-term consequences that can even affect the potential of offspring.

      • “an error to fall into genetic determinism,”

        It isn’t absolute, but it’s by far the most dominant factor in personality and intelligence.

        Twin studies, separated at birth , show an amazing degree of correlation, which confirms the genetic predisposition of all traits.

  4. According to the Bible, the organized Jewish community at the time was supportive of the crucifixion of Jesus. Jesus got crucified for claiming to be “king of the Jews.” Christianity also removes the “chosen people” aspect from Abrahamic monotheism and basically preaches that the religion is available to all ethnic groups and nationalities.

    • The kikes in Jerusalem were becoming very restless because of the things Jesus was preaching. Pilate had a very small force to maintain control there. He reluctantly crucified Jesus to avoid a jewish revolt.

  5. I have found that whenever someone drones on about “Abrahamic” this and that, he is always full of shit.

    Today is Good Friday. Jesus Christ is our Passover. All those without his mark will get fried, in due time.

  6. What are the (and their lackeys) doing besides ripping off the Goys ?

    “Behind Massive Mail-in Ballot Push Is a Little-Noticed Executive Order”

    A federal effort to register voters using the government’s vast reach, including throughout the U.S. prison system, is raising concerns from critics who have said it won’t benefit Democrats and Republicans equally.

    Mississippi Secretary of State Michael Watson wrote to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on March 6 alleging that agencies under the attorney general’s charge are “attempting to register people to vote, including potentially ineligible felons, and to co-opt state and local officials into accomplishing this goal.”

    The allegation relates to President Joe Biden’s Executive Order 14019, which states, “The head of each agency shall evaluate ways in which the agency can, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, promote voter registration and voter participation.”
    Among other things, this order has forced U.S. Marshals to modify more than 900 contracts with prisons and jails to provide voter registration documents and facilitate mail-in voting for inmates, Mr. Watson wrote.

    “We have worked extremely hard to restore the confidence of Mississippi voters in our election process,” Mr. Watson told The Epoch Times. “To have the Biden administration and the DOJ purposefully undermine these efforts and jeopardize the integrity of Mississippi’s elections is unacceptable.”

    The secretary of state is the chief election officer in Mississippi.

    The work by the Department of Justice to register voters in prisons, critics say, is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Other agencies, including the Department of Education, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, are also carrying out campaigns to sign up new voters.

    On Feb. 26, Vice President Kamala Harris lauded a federal plan to use work-study grants to pay students to register voters.
    In addition, President Biden’s executive order directed federal agencies to select “approved, nonpartisan third-party organizations and state officials to provide voter registration services on agency premises.”

    President Biden’s executive order was called “visionary“ by Ceridwen Cherry, a former staff attorney on the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Voting Rights Project, who said, ”In a democracy, governments at all levels should be doing everything they can to help eligible people register to vote.”
    However, critics say elections are under the purview of states, not the federal government.

    “The reason it’s such a big problem is that, with the president, it’s only one political party that’s in power,” Stewart Whitson, legal director of the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA), a conservative think-tank, told The Epoch Times.

    “If you allow the president to be the one to decide where all these massive resources are channeled, that’s problematic,” he said, adding that this is why the Founders gave election authority to states and not to the federal executive.

    Implementation Questions

    The plan has been called “Bidenbucks” by some of its detractors, referencing the injection into state election programs of $400 million in 2020 from Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, dubbed “Zuckerbucks.”
    “This is Zuckerbucks on steroids because instead of $400 million, it’s unlimited funding and resources and the reach of the federal government and all its offices located across the country,” Mr. Whitson said.

    Previous efforts to federalize elections through Congress have failed.

    In 2022, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) attempted to eradicate the legislative filibuster in order to pass H.R. 5746, the “Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act,” which would have given the federal government authority over parts of state election systems, expanded voting by mail, and eliminated security protocols such as requiring voter identification.
    Democrats claimed the bill was necessary to fight “voter suppression” by state governments.

    President Biden’s executive order includes the directive for federal agencies to find ways to distribute “vote-by-mail ballot application forms” as well as assist applicants in completing the application “in a manner consistent with all relevant State laws.”
    In 2020, nearly 45 percent of voters used mail-in-ballots.

    Since the president signed EO 14019, a number of attempts have been made to obtain information about how federal agencies will implement it, particularly which private organizations it has selected to work out of federal offices alongside government officials.

    Federal departments refused to release this information, and requests were followed up with FOIA filings and subsequently by lawsuits; however, the Biden administration continues to defy the requests.

    In July 2021, the FGA filed a FOIA request regarding President Biden’s Voting Access plan. The group sought information about what federal agencies were doing to implement the plan, as well as records from planning and strategy meetings among President Biden’s staff, federal agencies, and the architects of EO 14019.

    “These documents, in any other context, would be handed over much more quickly,” Mr. Whitson said. “So this indicates to us that there’s something there the Biden administration really does not care to share, because they’ve withheld it for nearly three years now.”

    The America First Legal foundation, another plaintiff in a FOIA suit, characterized EO 14019 as “the president’s unprecedented effort to deploy federal agencies in support of partisan voting operations and fortify politically aligned private organizations working to circumvent state election integrity laws.”
    More than two years later, court battles over the information requests are ongoing. The administration has brought in White House counsel and the Department of Justice to fight the requests.
    How Federal Agencies Enact EO 14019
    Prominent among the many federal agencies carrying out the executive order is the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which announced in 2022 that federal health centers across the nation now have the discretion to participate in activities—including voter registration—that are outside the scope of core department activities.
    “Such voter registration activities may include making available voter registration materials to patients, encouraging patients to register to vote, assisting patients with completing registration forms, sending completed forms to the election authorities, providing voter registration materials in waiting rooms, and allowing private, non-partisan organizations to conduct on-site voter registration,” the HHS website says.

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development instructed more than 3,000 public housing authorities managing some 1.2 million public housing units across the country to run voter registration drives in those units.
    The Department of Education sent a letter to universities, directing them to use Federal Work Study funds “to support voter registration activities.”
    The letter states, “If a student is employed directly by a post-secondary institution, the institution may compensate a student for [Federal Work Study] employment involving voter registration activities that take place on or off-campus.”

    The Department of Education has been particularly active in turning out likely Democrat voters, according to Scott Walter, president of the Capital Research Center.

    “Every college campus is massively dependent on Department of Education largesse, from Pell grants to every other kind of aid,” Mr. Walter told The Epoch Times.

    “The Department of Education in 2022 was threatening campuses that you better be registering students or you could lose your federal funds.”

    The Department of Agriculture issued letters to state agencies administering the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and the Women’s Infants and Children’s low-income food program, instructing them to carry out voter registration activities with federal funds.
    Targeted Registration?
    Two proponents of President Biden’s Voting Access plan, the ACLU and a coalition of progressive groups called Strengthening Democracy, produced their “Progress Report on Federal Agency Action to Promote Access to Voting” in March 2023.
    The report details their assessment of how well 10 federal agencies are doing in implementing EO 14019 and what they must do to improve.
    The report states that federal agencies should sign up new voters in the following ways: HHS should include voter registration in applications for health insurance under Obamacare; the VA should include voter registration for veterans who sign up for VA health benefits; Indian Health Services should help register patients using IHS facilities; the Education Department should include voter registration when students apply for federal student aid; and the Bureau of Prisons should work to register eligible convicts.

    The report praised the Treasury Department for its efforts targeting voter registration efforts at “low income clients of its voluntary tax preparation clinics.”

    “They’re targeting welfare agencies that serve predominantly left-leaning voters,” Mr. Whitson said. “It’s targeted voter registration, so you don’t have to worry about turning out more Republican voters if you focus your efforts in places where the vast majority of voters are going to lean left.”
    Partnering With Private Organizations
    An additional concern is that these federal agencies are partnering with private groups to sign up voters on federal agency premises.
    “They’re essentially taking third-party groups and they’re bringing them onto federal land, into a federal office, and who knows what they’re doing,” Mr. Whitson said. “Who knows if they’re following state laws governing voter registration and the collection of applications?

    “Our question is, which groups are approved, what’s the criteria for approval, who gets to decide which groups you’re going to cooperate with? And they haven’t disclosed that information either.”

    Mr. Watson also voiced this concern regarding DOJ efforts to sign up prison inmates to vote in Mississippi.

    The Mississippi secretary of state’s letter stated that, although his department oversees state elections, it is not aware of any contact between it and the DOJ, which raises the question of which organizations the Marshals are using to accomplish this demand.

    “Many outside groups performing voter registration and vote harvesting services are partisan entities with a history of being unreliable,” it reads.

    According to the FGA’s investigations, Mr. Whitson said, “We can see a sampling of who these hidden third-party groups are, and they’re all left-wing voter advocacy groups.

    “As they’re handing out welfare benefits, they’re allowing these groups special access. They’re allowing them to set up in the lobby so when people come into the agency to fill out their paperwork and apply for benefits, they’re greeted by these groups.”

    Although the Biden administration has refused to disclose which nonprofit organizations will partner with federal agencies, groups that support the effort include the ACLU, teachers unions, public employee unions, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the NAACP, the Black Voters Matter Fund, Public Citizen, Planned Parenthood, the League of Women Voters, and the Sierra Club.
    Pushback
    In May 2023, a group of Republican senators introduced a bill that would prohibit federal agencies from using taxpayer funds or collaborating with private organizations to mobilize voters.
    “The federal government and its millions of employees should not be using official resources to advance partisan politics,” Sen. Ted Budd (R-N.C.) said. He was one of six senators to introduce the bill, the Promoting Free and Fair Elections Act.
    “President Biden’s executive order empowering every federal agency to engage in electioneering on the taxpayers’ dime raises serious ethical and legal concerns [and] is inherently political and directed primarily at groups expected to vote for one party over another,” he said.

    In November 2023, Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) introduced an amendment to the 2024 appropriations bill that would prohibit federal agency funding from being used to implement Executive Order 14019.
    “This is an inappropriate and unconstitutional federalization of elections,” Rep. Tenney said at the time. “America’s civil service should be nonpartisan, and federal agencies should not be using taxpayer funds to actively engage in get-out-the-vote operations that have nothing to do with the agency’s core missions.”

    Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) responded by saying President Biden’s executive order “recognizes that there are too many obstacles to voting” and it is in place to “expand access to voter registration and election information.”

    The amendment passed by a voice vote; the bill is currently stalled in Congress.

    Simultaneously, a group of 24 Republican legislators in Pennsylvania have filed a federal complaint against President Joe Biden, Gov. Josh Shapiro, and representatives of the Pennsylvania Department of State, saying they have usurped the authority of the Legislature by changing voter registration and election rules.

    Their complaint in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania asks a judge to declare three actions unconstitutional: a voter registration executive order made by President Biden, a voter registration action by Mr. Shapiro, and some Department of State directives. They also request that the judge issue an order prohibiting the president, the governor, and state executives from making future changes to the elections process in Pennsylvania without following the legislative process.

    “Federal campaign finance laws apply to private parties’ voter registration activities,” the court papers say. “Voter registration drives … are a federally recognized private function, not a government function.”
