The Biggest Corruption Scam Ever: Silicon Valley Dark Funds!

By Carrie Lee

This is a tip-sheet to the FBI, The SEC and the U.S. Congress. Let's see how long it is before they do anything about this:

Keiner Perkins, Draper Fisher, Greylock, and a host of "venture capital" firms in Silicon Valley, partner with Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank to rig election "Dark Funds".  They use tricky giant law firms: Covington & Burling, Wilson Sonsini, MoFo, Perkins Coie and their brethren, to operate the schemes.

Dark Funds are when a group of fund managers get together with a candidate's management staff (ie: The Podesta's or David Plouffe's of the world) and give that candidate a list of orders.

Those marching orders are calculated to make nearly a trillion dollars of profits for the VC's if their candidate pulls the levers in their crony rat cage, as directed by the Vinod Khosla, John Doerr or Steve Jurvetson-type that is running the scam.

They did this with Harry Reid, Jerry Brown, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein and other politicians.

It is a criminal endeavor!

Bigger venture funds, pension funds, CALPers, Saudi's, Russian billionaires commit to giving Keiner Perkins, Draper Fisher, Greylock, etc, a guarantee to fund the candidate's campaign via Dark Money. "Dark Money" and "Dark Funds" are two different things.

Dark Money is the way they sneak money around under different kinds of stealth facades. Dark Funds are the venture capital payola schemes that payback the crooked investors.

Dark Funds managers invest in the candidate's crooked nature. They are betting that solar panels or lithium ion batteries will suddenly become a "big thing" because they told their owned candidates to make them a "big thing". Of course Keiner Perkins, Draper Fisher, Greylock, etc had previously monopolized the market for such goods. Keiner Perkins, Draper Fisher, Greylock, etc. sabotage any outsider who competes with the designated goods, along with ordering the candidates they own to blockade those competitors.

It’s a tough market for digital news sites and blogs — and Gizmodo Media Group is starting to look like the latest casualty.

The money-losing operator of sites like Jezebel, Deadspin and the Onion is still struggling to find a buyer — six months after it got put on the block by Univision, the Spanish-language broadcasting giant, sources told The Post.

Earlier this month, “more than two” suitors submitted offers in a second round of bidding that began late last month, insiders said. Nevertheless, Univision — which acquired Gizmodo in August 2016 when it scooped up the assets of bankrupted Gawker Media — is still casting around for better offers, according to a person with knowledge of the process.

“The process has been active, and it’s all going to boil down to price,” according to a source familiar with Univision’s thinking. “Univision is not interested in giving it up for nothing.”

Nevertheless, insiders say it could have a tough time getting the price it wants, even though Gizmodo brings in between $70 million and $80 million a year.

Sources said current bidders include Bryan Goldberg — the hard-bargaining owner of Bustle Digital Group who last month scooped up the once-hot, millennial-focused site Mic for $5 million. Mic previously had been valued by investors as high as $100 million, according to reports.

Indeed, times have changed from a few years ago, when venture capitalists were throwing millions at every business idea that looked like a possible moon shot, said Neal Zuckerman, a partner at Boston Consulting Group.

“Historically, venture-backed businesses are valued on the hope of the future,” he said. “What’s happened over the last couple of years is that people realized that making money is the purpose of the business.”

Zuckerman said he had no specific knowledge of the Gizmodo auction, but added that the market for digital media acquisitions is “frosty, not frothy.” There are many firms on the market, most of them with bloated valuations based on revenue and the size of their audiences, not profitability, he noted.

This summer, a source told us the going rate for Gizmodo was between “$100 million and $120 million, or 2 to 2.5 times forward revenue. Now, insiders believe Univision is looking for around $80 million.

Buyers, however, are looking for bargain-basement prices. When Bustle acquired Mic, the site had about $15 million in revenue a year and sold for a quarter of that, according to a source.

Other digital media companies previously rumored to be kicking the tires on Gizmodo — Penske Media, IAC and Ziff Davis — declined to comment on their current interest.

Univision declined to comment.

Univision has made it clear that Gizmodo is no longer part of its new strategy. In March, it scrapped plans to go public and ousted chief executive Randy Falco along with 200 employees. Under new CEO Vince Sadusky, Univision is doubling down on its “core strength,” Spanish-language TV and web broadcasting, as it streamlines for a potential buyer, sources told The Post.

Univision is looking to sell the Gizmodo group as a unit and not spin off the titles individually, although some execs inside the company believe they could get more if they chopped it up.

The company’s reluctance is linked to the fact that the only money-making properties of the lot are Gizmodo, the Onion and the Root, sources said. Univision does not own humor site the Onion outright — just a controlling stake — and African-American news site the Root is too small to make a meaningful dent.

“The value to the customers is on the individual brands,” a source said. “There’s some value in having shared scale and an operation that can take advantage of that scale, such as driving higher sales, reducing costs. But that’s a tough business right now.”

How Yale and Stanford created the Palo Alto Mafia: Humiliation, homoeroticism and animal cruelty: inside the frathouse- #PaloAltoMafia

Photographer Andrew Moisey uncovered ritual hazing, extreme drunkenness and toxic masculinity on one college campus – from men destined to be America’s future leaders

Access all areas to “the unholy trinity of fraternity life: racism, deadly drinking, and misogyny”Photograph: Andrew Moisey

Last year in the US, four freshman students died as a direct result of hazing rituals during college fraternity initiation ceremonies. All the deaths occurred during or just after drinking bouts in which the victims consumed vast amounts of spirits in a short space of time while older students egged them on. One of the deceased, Maxwell Gruver, 19, a student at Louisiana State University, was found to have had a blood-alcohol level over .49 g/dl at the time of his death – just .31 is considered life-threatening.

“Nobody can physically drink that much ... You have to be forced to drink it,” his mother told ABC news. “It’s senseless. I mean, how is making your brother do all these things, and humiliating somebody, a brotherhood?”

In his book True Gentlemen: The Broken Pledge of America’s Fraternities, John Hechinger notes that around 100,000 young men choose to be initiated into chapters annually, despite these all-male societies now being associated with what he describes as “the unholy trinity of fraternity life: racism, deadly drinking and misogyny”. Many of the young men they attract will go on to work in politics, finance and law-making, sometimes at the highest level. What’s more, the loyalties formed will be maintained throughout a working life in which the male, white and privileged look out for each other whatever their transgressions. Hechinger cites a fraternity promotional video that promises students a lifelong bond with “the best and brightest men on campus. Men who will become the best men at your wedding, pallbearers at your funeral and everything in between.”

There is a funeral in Andrew Moisey’s timely and provocative photobook, The American Fraternity: An Illustrated Ritual Manual, though it is unrelated to anything that happened on the campus of the unnamed university where the images were documented. It does, though, show young men looking awkwardly ill at ease as they attend the most serious ritual of all. Elsewhere, the same young men seem altogether more relaxed in a closed, all-male campus environment where heavy drinking, boorishness, bullying and misogyny are the norms. A world in which homosexuality is taboo but cross-dressing and semi-naked wrestling are acceptable and parading your penis and testicles is almost de rigueur.

“I wanted to show how the whole brotherhood thing that fraternity houses are built on actually tends to bring out the worst in young men, and the lofty ideals that once informed the organisations have now been replaced by pretty dreadful behaviour,” elaborates Moisey, who studied at Berkeley and now teaches at Cornell. “But I also wanted to get over the fact that, though these guys love to revel in their own debauchery, they don’t think of themselves as bad people.”

Moisey, whose older brother was a member of the frat house in the book, began photographing there in 2008, when George W Bush, “the ultimate frat guy”, was president. “I was angry with Bush and the culture of white privilege that produced him and his values, but no one was that interested in the pictures. But now, suddenly it’s 2018 and the temperature has changed.”

The book offers an uncomfortable glimpse of an enclosed world whose ultra-macho values have been sanctioned by the election of bully-in-chief Donald Trump, and his subsequent endorsement of Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh. Interestingly, of the 18 presidents listed as ex-fraternity members in the book – including Kennedy, Reagan, Clinton and Bush – Trump is conspicuous by his absence. Kavanaugh, though, is included on the corresponding list of Supreme Court judges, even though the book went to the printers before his controversial confirmation. “I took a calculated risk on that one and it paid off,” says Moisey. “Out of a fraternity culture that protects bad seeds, one of the worst seeds gets elected to the Supreme Court.”

The American Fraternity is a beautifully complex undertaking: the photobook as art object, conceptually mirroring an old fraternity handbook complete with pledges, prayers, vows and descriptions of the secretive rituals and rules that bind members for life. Hence images of excess and humiliation are contrasted with the grandly titled, quasi Masonic ceremonies that lend contemporary fraternity houses a historical legitimacy: the Ritual of Initiation, the Libations, the Candle Ceremony, Duties of the Chapter Orders.

There are many disturbing visual echoes, including a grainy photograph of hooded inductees being humiliated that recalls images of prisoners being degraded at Abu Ghraib. Elsewhere, obviously distressed and inebriated young men are cajoled to drink more by older students with predictable results – retching, puking and unconsciousness. Aggression and humiliation are the norms here, the one driving the other.

When young women appear in the photographs, the sense of danger is amplified. Some collude in the laddish behaviour, baring their breasts and appearing unconcerned about being groped and leered at. Others seem more uncertain, slightly spooked, yet they are there of their own volition despite the heightened atmosphere of male entitlement – even threat. One woman is photographed, fully clothed but passed out, legs apart, on a bed. It could be an aftermath photograph, or a warning of what might yet occur. Whichever, the image carries a disturbing charge, all the more so given the recent studies that have found that women in sororities are 74% more likely to be raped than other college women.

“Why are the girls there?” asks writer Cynthia Robinson in her edgy, questioning afterword. “Why did they go, why do they, to these parties where everyone knows what happens?” She then provides, from personal experience, an uncomfortable answer. “Let me tell you why, because I was there too. A sheltered southern girl eager to bust out, I was a frat-house regular by the end of my first semester. I passed out in frat houses too. Lots of girls did ... I was there because I wanted reassurance on a certain score: that I could be a certain thing, be a certain way. The girls in the images that comprise this book are there for the same reasons. They are there in order to reassure themselves, to perform for their peers, that they are desirable. Desired. This they want above all other things: to be desired.”

Moisey’s black and white photographs move from portraiture to reportage to a low-lit style that is close to surveillance photography – some rituals are carried out in candlelight. Throughout, he is a detached observer, showing the unruly ordinariness of all-male campus dorm life – untidy bedrooms, filthy kitchens, graffiti-scrawled doors – alongside the debauchery and excess. The fraternity even has a pet dog, which seems to roam freely through the rooms and, in one awful image, is held by one drunken guy while being punched by another. Everything, it seems, is permitted in pursuit of this almost feral male camaraderie.

“These all-male campus spaces have been around since the 1820s,” elaborates Moisey, “but they changed perceptibly during the so-called culture wars of the 1970s, becoming a safe space for guys who didn’t want to have to worry about having their kind of fun.” Many fraternities, he believes, now view themselves as embattled institutions, maintaining their conservative core values of brotherhood, privilege and machismo against a perceived liberal onslaught. Disturbingly, the code of loyalty to the brotherhood endures even after the other principles of fraternity life have long since fallen away.

“The central issue is that there is an allegiance to everyone inside the fraternity rather than to the higher ideal,” says Moisey. “So even though most of these guys consider themselves highly respectable, their loyalty is such that they will protect the bad guys who hide in their midst. If you are a bad seed and you join a fraternity, you have found your safe haven. And what we are seeing right now is that the support and protection that fraternities provide for the bad seeds extends into the highest echelons of American power and decision-making.”

The last image in the book shows a row of frat guys looking at a spread of Moisey’s photographs. They seem unconcerned, even amused, by what they depict. “I didn’t set out to expose them,” says Moisey, “I just wanted to show what hadn’t been shown before. And when I showed it to them, they were fine. As far as they are concerned, they’re just ordinary American guys doing what ordinary American guys do at college.”

Revealingly, though, when Moisey first exhibited the work in a small show in Berkeley, it was his artist’s statement that drew the most media attention. It read: “This is what our leaders looked like when they were young.”
