Escape from Paradise – the Promotional Trailer

Reward for information regarding Seth Rich

One America News Network (OAN) is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in former DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder case.

The Herring Networks, Inc. media company OAN joins a number of individuals and groups that are willing to pay for information that solves the July 10, 2016, killing of Mr. Rich. The election-season murder continues to spark conspiracy theories based on the suggestion that Mr. Rich provided DNC data to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

“One America News believes solving this case — and bringing Rich’s murderer to justice — is essential to exposing the truth for the American people,” OAN’s Greta Wall reported Monday. “We are offering a $100,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of a suspect in the case. If you have any information, please email us at”

Others offering rewards include the Washington, D.C. Police Department ($25,000); WikiLeaks ($20,000); and Republican strategist Jack Burkman ($130,000).

Timothy Geither's gift of $36 billion to foreigners


U. S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner

The $700 billion U.S. bailout program launched in response to the global economic meltdown had a far greater impact overseas than other countries’ financial rescue plans did on the U.S., according to a new report from a congressional watchdog.

Apparently, tax cheat and US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has caused billions of dollars in U.S. rescue funds (TARP) to wind up in big banks in France, Germany and other nations.

Whereas Geithner failed to keep the TARP funds from foreigners, most of our foreign friens cleverly focused their efforts on banks in their nations that lacked major U.S. operations.

Major French and German banks were among the biggest beneficiaries of the U.S. rescue of American International Group Inc. (AIG).

Much of the $182 billion in federal aid to AIG flowed through to its partners, including French banks Societe Generale, which received $11.9 billion in AIG money, and BNP Paribas, which got $4.9 billion, and Germany’s Deutsche Bank, $11.8 billion.

That’s a $28 billion gift of America’s funds from Timothy Geithner to the three European banks. In all 43 foreign banks benefited the AID bonanza including also banks in Canada, Britain and Switzerland.

Geithner’s TARP funds wound up injecting capital into around 700 banks, while foreign governments combined aided fewer than 50.

Unlike Geithner, foreign governments watched where their funds were going.

In addition to AIG, many of the U.S. banks and automakers that received billions in bailout aid passed through a large proportion of their TARP funds to operations outside the U.S., especially in Japan and Europe.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that taxpayers will lose $36 billion, thanks to Geithner’s “negligence.”

But was Geithner really negligent?

Maybe there will be a cushy job waiting for him after he leaves the U.S. Treasury Department.
