Heritage hidden millionaire Manuel Vall
Manuel Valls has hidden 99% of the shares of a SCI holding assets of nearly EUR 2 million, putting them on behalf of his wife. The declaration of interests by Manuel Valls did appear as a Minister in debt without real heritage. However, it is nothing. In his statement of heritage, Manuel Valls said that 93,000 euros in assets, after deduction of its liabilities and borrowings. Valls said the owner of 2 apartments: 88 m² in Evry and a 44 m² in Paris in the 11th district. According to the Prime Minister, it is in this 44 m² studio that he lives with his wife, violinist Anne Gravoin…But Manuel Valls has more than one trick in his bag! The Prime Minister is indeed married under the regime of separation of property and has only 1 only part of the SCI Homer who holds the 11th arrondissement apartment, the 99 other parts belonging to his wife. The SCI Homer does not have only the small studio where Valls and his wife are supposed to live, but 16 condominiums lots, for a total of 210 to 250 m². These lots of condominiums are valued between 1.6 and 2 million euros.The description of the lots on the cadastral plan is edifying: 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 7 parts stay, 5 kitchens and 2 terraces… nothing that it! The « small studio » in which saw Manuel Valls resembles uncannily a huge apartment 11 rooms, at least.Manuel Valls has thus hidden 99% of the shares of a SCI holding assets of nearly EUR 2 million, putting them on behalf of his wife to do not have to declare the amount or existence. If Manuel Valls and Anne Gravoin divorcing, the regime of separation of property would require to investigate the origin of the funds involved in the acquisition of the property held in co-ownership. It would be interesting to know if Anne Gravoin has well paid 99 per cent of the monthly instalments of the loan of the SCI and 99% of the initial contribution with his violinist stamps, or else if this is that of a round of sleight avoiding Manuel Valls to a muli-millionaire…
This is crazy, this disease, to lie, knowing that you are in the West P-T-N, the hand in the bag, you under stick that isn’t you shit! be worthy, AH! you know what this means.
But be nice please. stop lying, as you have always done, but frankly VALLS, SARKO were dropped to places and are all small, small, on them would be barely on binoculars (, it would distinguish can be a, I’ll bet on SARKO, as this would be the seul(, quoique à ce niveau là les 2 se valent,) on the face of the other), so we can see it, I imagine well with his small flags.

United States: 9 black militants paid, 54 years after their conviction
There, frankly,it is, in America, when I see that (9) nine black kids who now are far from being with kids, and who have paid their person, for 54 years to the Zhang (Moreover, they were retried by the grandson of mec(delede juge) that they have put in prison at the time.JOESON
Hats down, for this revision, gentlemen
SYMBOL – more than a half century after their incarceration to be entered without authorization in a restaurant reserved for whites, nine American civil rights activists saw their sentences cancelled and deleted from their criminal records.
They had refused to pay, launching the « Jail, no bail » movement (the prison, no deposit). Photo: screenshot NBC
The facts date back to January 31, 1961. A group of civil rights activists, composed of nine Americans black and known under the name of « Friendship Nine », decides to enter a restaurant reserved for whites, to protest against segregationist legislation then taking place in the United States. Inside, they moved to the counter and order to eat and drink. Refusing to leave the premises, they are arrested.
Sentenced the next day to choose, from 30 days of forced labour or a fine of $ 100, they had refused to pay, launching the « Jail, no bail » movement (the prison, no deposit) to « stop the cycle of constantly giving money to an unjust judicial system », according to the site Internet of Friendship College, the school where had registered the « Friendship Nine ». The movement had made oil stain in the history of the struggle of black Americans for their rights and had been taken over by other protesters, thus fulfilling the prisons. But Thursday, American justice wished to apologize.
A way to « correct history »
A judge of the Court of Rock Hill therefore convened the nine men to quash this conviction 54 year old. Powerful symbol, he is the nephew of the judge who sentenced them in 1961. This highly symbolic session, the Group was represented by Ernest Finney, 83 years, lawyer who had defended them half a century previously previously. « We cannot rewrite history but we can correct it, » said the judge, John Hayes, quoted by the Charlotte Observer.
The Prosecutor recalled that they had been sentenced « for the sole reason that they were black. It was unjust, it always is. « As a representative of the State, I present to you my sincere apologies ». Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King, leading figure in this movement, then told the press that this day was « a victory in the relations between the races in America ». Now, their name is engraved on the stools of the restaurant in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Goldman Sachs will change its Board of Directors
L.B. – LAURA BERNY | 12-03-28 7:33 pm
To escape a resolution which could have cost him his position as president and CEO, Lloyd Blankfein will appoint one independent Director.
« A constructive discussion », This is how Goldman Sachs spokesman called the agreement revealed Wednesday with pension fund AFSCME leading to a change in its Board of Directors. In the hostile environment in which the firm operates in recent weeks, Lloyd Blankfein, its CEO, did not want to take the risk of a shareholder vote on the resolution of the AFSCME proposing to split the functions of president and CEO. Goldman Sachs has agreed to appoint a ‘lead director, an independent Director who will preside over the Council in the absence of Lloyd Blankfein, who will have the responsibility to evaluate annually the CEO and which will serve as a « liaison officer » between independent directors and management of the Bank.
« We believe it is a step in the right direction » , said yesterday the Agency Bloomberg Lisa Lindsley, a leader of the AFSCME, the largest American, including shareholder Goldman Sachs employees pension fund. In return, the Fund agreed to withdraw a motion asking for the separation of the role of president and CEO at Goldman Sachs. An application that it maintains a number of other companies, in particular to JP Morgan Chase. Given the recent accusations of conflict of interest made by a judge in connection with the sale of El Paso and the bad press generated by the murdered a former Goldman Sachs banker Forum, Greg Smith, in the New York Times in mid-March, the application could this year found a favourable echo.
This is John H. Bryan, former boss of Sara Lee Corp., administrator of the Bank since 1999, which could play this ‘referent’ Administrator role to the Council, according to the Bloomberg Agency.

Political figures from Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs has used many personalities who have held positions in the institutions of their country or international people who sometimes took a career in public office.
Main article: Jon Corzine.
Jon Corzine is trader on the bonds for Goldman Sachs since 1975. He is president and CEO (Chief executive officer) of Goldman Sachs from 1994 to 1998. He was Senator from New Jersey from 2001 to 2006 then Democratic Governor of that State from 2006 to 2010. It is a very frequent guest Bilderberg Group since he took the Presidency of Goldman Sachs50.
In March 2010, he became president of MF Global, dedicated financial broker in derivatives worldwide. Under its aegis the broker bet massively on European, especially Italian and Spanish public debt then embroiled in a brutal increase in their interest rate. MF Global acknowledged being exposed to 6.3 billion dollars on Spanish and Italian public debt since the summer 2011. MF Global went bankrupt October 31, 2011. This bankruptcy is the eighth most important to the United States in 30 years
The Court criminal international investigated on the recent violence in Ivory Coast
The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court Luis Moreno-Ocampo, native to Argentina, applied Thursday for approval to investigate the orgy of post-election violence which occurred in Côte d’Ivoire, which was some 3,000 dead last year.
The ICC is a permanent court to try those accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes
If the panel of judges agreed to his request, it will be the seventh case of war crimes or crimes against humanity opened by Luis Moreno-Ocampo. Each of them has been opened against African leaders.
Although it has considered other cases, such as Gaza or the FARC in Colombia, the first Prosecutor defended his determination on the African continent.
« When there are crimes under my jurisdiction, it is my duty to intervene, » he specified. « I rise in Africa because the more serious crimes that are under my jurisdiction… practice today in Africa. »
The last outbreak of violence that has hit Côte d’Ivoire — once regarded as one of the most stable nations of West Africa – was caused by the refusal of former President Laurent Gbagbo to cede power to the leader of the opposition, Alassane Ouattara, after he lost the elections in November. Mr. Ouattara took office as president in May and has asked the international court to investigate crimes committed by both sides during the post-election crisis.
Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said that he has received information from many sources, including a fact-finding UN, that at least 3,000 people were killed in the violence and more than 100 people have been raped. Hundreds of people have disappeared.
Forces loyal to Mr. Gbagbo, aided by militias and Liberian mercenaries, have launched attacks to maintain Laurent Gbagbo to power, according to Luis Moreno-Ocampo in his written request.
Pro-Gbagbo forces have committed crimes against humanity, including murder, rape and other forms of sexual violence, imprisonments random and suspicious disappearances, said attorney, former consultant to the World Bank.
« While the conflict between Mr. Gbagbo and supporters of Mr Ouattara evolves, both sides committed war crimes on a large scale by murders, rapes, attacks on civilians and religious buildings « , according to the request.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo defended several controversial figures, including Diego Maradona, the former Minister of economy Domingo Cavallo and a priest accused of sexual abuse of minors. He represents victims in the procedure for the extradition of the former nazi war criminal Erich Priebke
The Attorney studied for several years, any crimes committed elsewhere, but without to open an official investigation.
The war of Gaza 2008 is complex because Israel rejects the jurisdiction of the tribunal, and on the other side, Palestine is not a State. The Palestinian Authority has tried unilaterally to accept the jurisdiction of the tribunal as a way to open the case.
Mr. Moreno-Ocampo label the legal complexity of the case of Gaza’s « special », and says that his office will take a decision on the Palestinian request, when it is ready.
He said focus on Africa is partly due to the United Nations, which ordered investigations in Darfur and Libya, but also because it has found the most cooperation from Governments African.
« In Africa, there is a critical mass of leaders struggling to stop violence in Africa and we work with them, » he said.
Some investigators of the Court analyzed the atrocities past Ivory Coast for years and some activists believe that if the investigation is authorized by judges, it should also cover the previous upheavals.
No Peace Without Justice (steps of peace without Justice) group called Mr. Moreno-Ocampo and Mr. Ouattara to extend the investigation from 2002.
• »Limit the investigation to recent crimes when it is possible to investigate crimes since 2002 risk get the Attorney to the bias in the selection of cases and individuals for subsequent prosecution », said the group in a statement

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher. CFR members, including Brian Williams, Fareed Zakaria, Angelina Jolie, Chuck Hagel, and Erin Burnett, explain why the Council on Foreign Relations is an essential resource in a complex world.

The Council on Foreign Relations or CFR is a think-tank non-partisan American, aiming to analyze the foreign relations of the United States and the global political situation. Founded in 1921, it is composed of approximately 5,000 members from the business community, of economy and politics. Its headquarters is located in New York City with an office in Washington D. C.. The CFR is considered one of the most influential think tanks in policy foreign1,2,3. It publishes a bi-monthly journal, Foreign Affairs, features of a highly accessed web site, publishes many reports and books as well as videos (his Crisis Guides won an Emmy award4 ).
Not to be confused with the Committee on Foreign Relations (Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Senate of the United States).

The CFR wants to be ‘ a resource for its members as well as officials of the Government, the leaders of companies, journalists, teachers and students, civil and religious leaders, citizens, to help them better understand the world and the policy choices foreign that must be both the United States than other countries ‘. The CFR means that its members reflect the diversity of American society and intends to develop the expertise of the rising generation of leaders by offering programs that include meetings and discussions with government officials, world leaders and prominent members of the community of Foreign Affairs.
His think tank , the David Rockefeller Studies Program consists of approximately fifty assistants and full-time researchers and ten recipients of a one year scholarship covering the major regions and current issues of the international agenda. These researchers contribute to the foreign policy debates by making recommendations to the presidential administration, testifying before the Senate of the United States by providing advice to the diplomatic community, interacting with the media notably through reports, from books to blogs on the subjects of foreign policy.
The CFR publishes Foreign Affairs, an influential Journal of International Affairs and what they call Independent Task ForcesN 1 i.e. reports carried out by experts of origin and areas of expertise various. These reports include both analyses and prescriptions on important foreign policy matters. The CFR also aims to provide information and analysis to date on world events and on the foreign policy of the United States. In 2008, his Crisis Guide: Darfur received an Emmy Award in the category New Approaches to News & Documentary Programming: Current News Coverage .
For Fareed Zakaria, the Council is profoundly marked by the James Madison thought that « was suspicious of political parties, he ranked block alongside the ‘factions’ of all kinds and considered to be a serious threat to the young American Republic »5. In this context the Council has always wanted like the Brookings Institution to overcome political barriers and to work together with Democrats and Republicans. This point strongly distinguishes it from other Think Tank as theHeritage Foundation whose one of the leaders said «our role is to provide the conservative politicians arguments that will support our camp»6 .
On the contrary, the Council seems to aim instead to manufacture a consensus based on reason and the study of the facts, a close line of the thought of Walter Lippmann, one of its founders.
The program International Institutions and Global Governance
Thinking that the architecture of global governance too reflect the world as it existed in 1945 and was more suited to today’s world, the CFR has launched in 2008 a five year programme entitled « International Institutions and Global Governance: World Order in the 21st Century ». « The program seeks to identify critical weaknesses of the current framework of multilateral cooperation; « to propose specific reforms adapted to the new global situation: to promote a constructive leadership of the United States to strengthen the capacity of existing organizations and to promote new institutions and new more effective partnerships both at regional and global level including the private sector and NGO ‘7 .
TheN 2 program focuses on four major challenges:
•Counter transnational threats, including terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and infectious diseases;
•Protect the environment and promote energy security;
•Manage the global economy;
•Prevent and respond to violent conflict.
The CFR has two types of members: physical persons and companies
Concerning physical persons, they must be citizens of the United States or permanent residents having asked their citizenship. To become permanent members, his candidacy must be supported by at least three members former8. Individuals between 30 and 36 years may be offered the opportunity to become members for a period of five years.
For corporations (250 total)N 3 there are three categories: Affiliates (contribution over $ 30,000), President’s Circle (contribution over $ 60,000) and Founders (contribution over $ 100,000). All executives of the companies have the opportunity to thus achieve presidents or heads of Government of the officials of the United States or members of Congress. Categories President and Founders members can also attend private dinners or receptions given by important officials of the United States or leaders global9 .
The CFR has two co-chairmen, a president (currently Richard n. Haass) and a Steering Committee which currently has thirty-six members among which we can mention: Robert e. Rubin, Carla A. Hills, Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright, Alan Blinder, Fareed Zakaria N 4 .
There is also a Global Advisory Board composed of 25 members from around the world.
The CFR also has a team of paid researchers.
A study of Laurence Shoup and William Minter résumés of 502 important members of the Governments of the United States over the period from 1945 to 1972 showed that more than fifty percent of them had been members of Council on Foreign Relations. For these authors, be members of this institution could be considered ‘a rite of passage for anyone aspiring to be a leader of national security’10 .
The Council on Foreign Relations has counted many politicians such as Gerald Ford, more than twelve Foreign Ministers including John Foster Dulles, Dean Rusk, Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albrightand Colin Powell, bankers, lawyers, journalists (including Walter Lippmann), teachers such as Wesley Clair Mitchell and an importantOSS and CIA Allen Dulles , then figure.
In 1962, the Group began a program first for officers of theUS Air Force andUS Army,US Navy andUS Marine Corps11 .
The Council that accepts in general (there are exceptions, such as Grover Norquist) rather « centrist » Democrats and Republican members seem to have diminished his influence in governmental spheres under the Presidency of George w. BushN 5 in favour of neo-conservative think-tank as the PNAC (Project for the New American Century). The current administration Obama has some members who had links with the CFR. Among them, we can mention: Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture, Ken Salazar, Secretary of Interior, Robert Gates, Secretary of defence or Timothy Geithner, Treasury Secretary, among others.
On the other hand, some of its members are also the Bilderbergers, while others are members of the Trilateral Commission, institutions that are trying to influence the decisions taken in the areas of regulation of the world economy and geopolitics.
1920s at the end of the second world war
The Council on Foreign Relations was born from the merger between a group of international lawyers and bankers gathered aroundElihu Root12who founded it in June 1918 and elders of theInquiry, i.e. of the working group formed under the leadership of president Woodrow Wilson and his special adviser colonel Edward Mandell House. This group which included Walter Lippmann met young people in both creative and ambitious. In Paris at a meeting at the hotel Majestic with their British counterparts, they decided to form an Anglo-American Institute of international studies with a branch in London and one in New York. The British formed the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Americans back home are warned that their country did not have the same problems as Britain and that therefore it was appropriate to create a separate body. For their part the English had arrived at the same conclusion so that there was no problem between these two institutions. The Americans closer group ofElihu Root, each bringing funds and social relations other ideas, expertise and diplomatic experience. However the need to spare the egos became as that on 29 July 1921, that the new institution was able to start, under the chairmanship of John w. Davis, former Ambassador in London. In 1922, the association which had already three hundred members, received with great fanfare its first brand host, Georges Clemenceau13. In September 1922, they launch the Foreign Affairs journal whose sale is much better than expected. Elihu Root wrote in the first issue, as isolationist or not, America had become a world power and that the public should know14 .
In 1925 W. E. B. Wood, an African-American, wrote an article entitled « World of Color » in Foreign Affairs15. However, tensions persisted between academics keen to know the opinions of all and others. In March 1933, Henry Stimson , who was repeatedly Ministers, was shocked that a Japanese has been invited to speak. Another controversy was opened in 1937, following the publication of the bookHamilton Fitz Armstrong andAllen Dulles Can We Be Neutral?. A book in which the authors attacked the isolationists and is made both in favour of the intervention of the United States in the fight against Nazism. The controversy between interventionist and isolationist that followed, ended with the entry into the United States15. During this period, members of the CFN served in theOSS, others occupied high positions (Henry Stimson was Minister of war John j. McCloy became his Deputy, Averell Harriman played an important diplomatic role) and a hundred were integrated with the endorsement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in War and Peace project which involved four groups: economic and financial including Alvin Hansen and Jacob VinerSecurity and armaments, territory and policy16 .
From 1945 to the 1960s
After the war, over 50% of leaders CFR out of major universities (Ivy League) and lawyers of the companies Wall Street members of numerous boards of Directors constitutes the largest group. At the same time, twenty researchers are employed full time17. In 1945, the Council is for a time for a policy of appeasement with theUSSR. In July 1947, the journal of the Council, Foreign Affairs, publishes the article by George Kennan : The source of Soviet Conduct where it introduced the term containment18. Even if the members of the Council such as Averell Harriman will play a role of the Council as such, is little involved in the Marshall Plan. In 1957, after a year spent at the headquarters of the CFN, Henry Kissinger published Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy which will form the basis of the doctrines of strategic stability, arms control and non-proliferation nuclear18. In the early 1960s, according to Arthur Schlesinger the Council is at the heart of the American « establishment » which the gods Lares are Henry Stimson and Elihu Root and the current leaders Robert a. Lovett and John McCloy.
If in the 1960s in the United States and China in World Affairs, the Council favours a rapprochement with China which will be finally realized18, the Viet Nam war undermines deeply the institution as besides the United States. The divergences between the members will be such that no document on the subject can be produced. Some long-standing members begin to doubt and wonder if the institution has not had its day.Walter Lippmann now retired, Hamilton Fitz Armstrong leaves, after fifty years of service, Foreign Affairs, and John McCloy decides to hand over.
From the 1970s, the Council, under the chairmanship of David Rockefeller, will gradually recover. The staff will be rejuvenated and women will be admitted. In 1976, they finally produce a document on The Viet Nam LegacyViet Nam war, a book edited by Anthony Lake who later became Advisor to Bill Clinton19. At the end of the 1970s, the Council launches the 1980’s project which the result seems too academic and not sufficiently incisive to some. The end of the cold war brings the Council, like other bodies of research in international relations, to a profound paradigm shift.
In the 1980s, an International Advisory Board, composed of foreign characters, playing an important role in the world of business and politics, is implemented. This Board, which including Rigoberta Menchú, is intended to open the Council on the world. At the same time, arrangements are made in order to better ensure the relations between now widely dispersed members (long, the Council has been a club of the « Establishment New Yorkers’) and to strengthen its media presence. Finally, efforts are made to attract members and researchers from the new generation20 .

For some relatives of the John Birch Society, the CFR would be controlled by a group of people from the secret societies of students from Yale and Harvard universities: the Skull and Bones and Scroll and Key. These people, after their supposed integration into an elite group called « JASON Society, would be elected by their peers to constitute the Executive Committee of the CFR. The John Birch Society argues that the Council of foreign relations is dedicated to the formation of a World Government22. In 1980, one of his representatives and member of Congress of United States, Larry McDonald, wanted to launch a parliamentary inquiry into the Council of foreign relations and the trilateral via resolution 77323 .
The influence of certain private media interests has been studied in General by Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman via their model of propaganda (1988).
