Devin Archer, Hunter and Another Company: Mbloom

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: Devon Archer, whose conviction was reinstated in a ruling, had partnered with Hunter Biden in Rosemont Seneca, a Washington-based investment firm. Starting in 2014, the pair served together on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company accused of corruption, at the same time that his father oversaw U.S. policy towards Ukraine. Hunter Biden has called his decision to take the board seat “a mistake,” while Joe Biden has defended the decision, saying, “my son did nothing wrong.”

KAHULUI, HI–(Marketwired – Jan 21, 2014) – mbloom LLC, a Maui-based technology fund for Hawaii startups, today announced the close of a $10 million early-stage venture capital fund.

The investment, mbloom Fund 1, is a public-private partnership with Hawaii State Development Corporation (HSDC) and Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners, an East Coast hedge fund.

“We are excited to use mbloom Fund 1 to create economic growth for Hawaii,” says mbloom co-founder Arben Kryeziu. “Innovation happens in Hawaii, but many companies leave the island for growth opportunities on the mainland. We want to keep Hawaii startups here, giving them opportunities to develop, connect, and make a mark just like the startups in Silicon Valley.”

Tech fund for Hawaii startups mbloom LLC closes $10M early ...

Hat tip source:

A businessman with alleged ties to Russian organized crime and Syria’s ruling regime paid nearly US$3 million into a failed investment fund backed by a longtime business partner of the son of the U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden, leaked bank records show.

Hares Youssef, who holds both Ukrainian and Syrian citizenship, invested $2.98 million in late 2015 into mbloom, a now-defunct tech startup fund that was jointly financed by Hawaii’s Strategic State Development Corporation and Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners (RSTP). RSTP was run by Devon Archer, then a close business partner of Hunter Biden.

Mbloom was shuttered after Archer was arrested in an unrelated fraud case.

While the younger Biden had previously been involved with RSTP, there is no evidence that he played a role in the mbloom deal. An archived version of RSTP’s website from 2014 listed Biden as a Washington, D.C.-based managing director of the company, but his name had been removed from the site by September 2015, when Youssef made his investment.

“Mr. Biden severed his relationship with Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners prior to this transaction,” said George Mesires, a spokesman for Hunter Biden.

Financial records examined by reporters show that money from mbloom was paid into another of Archer’s accounts, which was at the time making regular payments to Biden. Mesires did not respond to questions about whether any of these payments were connected to mbloom.

The details of Youssef’s investment are contained in the FinCEN Files, a series of suspicious activity reports (SARs), secret alerts issued by bank compliance officers when there are suspicions that a transaction may be linked to crime or money laundering. The existence of a SAR is not itself evidence of wrongdoing.
About This Investigation

The FinCEN Files is a 16-month-long investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, BuzzFeed News, and more than 400 international journalists in 88 countries, including those from OCCRP and its network of member centers.

The investigation is based on more than 2,100 secret bank reports filed to the U.S. Treasury Department’s intelligence unit, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, other documents, and dozens of interviews.

The documents show that City National Bank in Los Angeles flagged as suspicious two payments sent in September and November 2015 to mbloom, which was based on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

The bank flagged the transaction based on reports tying Youssef to international arms trafficking and to Semion Mogilevich, a Russian organized crime boss dubbed “The Brainy Don.” Given these alleged links, the bank was “unable to validate whether the source of the wires derived is from Mr. YOUSSEF’s legitimate businesses or from his alleged ties to Russian and Ukrainian criminal elements,” the SAR said.

The SAR also cited allegations that Youssef had ties to Maher al-Assad, a senior Syrian general who is the brother of the country’s president.
Graham Barrow, a U.K.-based anti-money laundering expert, told OCCRP that the link between Youssef and mbloom was sure to raise a red flag for compliance officers at the bank.

“The transaction looks every bit as bad as you might presume,” he said. “The bank would be very concerned as to the source of these funds and a lack of detailed narrative as to the business purpose only compounds those concerns.”

Youssef told OCCRP via WhatsApp that the allegations he was linked to organized crime and arms smuggling were “bull shit”.

The investment fund, mbloom, was embroiled in controversy shortly after its founding in 2014 by Kane – also known as Arben Kane Kryreziu – and his business partner, Nick Bicanic. The fund was seeded with $5 million each from Archer’s RSTP and the Hawaiian Strategic Development Corporation, a state government-backed fund intended to create entrepreneurial growth and high wage jobs.

Almost immediately, mbloom attracted controversy after reportedly investing in two startups run by Bicanic and Kane. The fund was shut down in mid-2016 after Archer was arrested for defrauding the Oglala Sioux tribe of tens of millions of dollars. The Hawaii Strategic Development Corporation then withdrew.

In interviews, both Youssef and mbloom’s former manager, Kane, said the investment was the initiative of Archer, who served with Biden at the time on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings. Archer has since been convicted of fraud in the U.S. in the Oglala Sioux case.
Both men characterized Archer as the driving force behind the deal and said that the younger Biden was not involved.

“Youssef was introduced through Devon Archer as an investor,” Kane told OCCRP, adding that he trusted Archer because he came from a “prestige network” that included his other business partner, Christopher Heinz, the stepson of the then-US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Youssef said he met both Archer and Kane, but never met Biden.

Youssef was indicted in Spain in 2017 for allegedly laundering money for Dmytro Firtash, a Kremlin-linked Ukrainian oligarch currently fighting extradition to the U.S. to face corruption charges. By a strange twist of fate, Firtash last year joined efforts by U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, to generate unfounded, politically damaging allegations of corruption against the Bidens.

Archer’s lawyer, Matthew Schwartz, did not respond to questions sent by email.
Return to Sender

Youssef told OCCRP he traveled to New York in 2015 to meet Archer and Kane, and that the investment was intended to help create a gold-backed virtual currency named Golden Hearts.

Kane gave a different account, saying the money was intended to finance a planned attempt to take mbloom public.

Whatever the reason for the investment, things quickly turned sour. In its SAR, City National Bank said it had contacted mbloom about its concerns over Youssef’s alleged ties to organized crime. The investment fund told the bank it would return Youssef’s money.

In January 2016, mbloom refunded Youssef $277,000 according to the SAR.

Youssef said he would like to get his remaining millions back, adding, “I wish one day [but] I don’t think it will happen.”

In fact, the SAR shows that most of this money was transferred to another firm related to mbloom called Mbloom BDC Advisor LLC, from which it was disbursed “mostly for legal services, taxes, insurance premiums, etc.”

Just days after Youssef made his investment, Mbloom BDC Advisor LLC transferred $275,000 to the account of Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC, another company owned by Archer, according to bank documents posted online by New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel. It is unclear if this money originated with Youssef.

Set up by Archer in Delaware in 2014, Rosemont Seneca Bohai was an “apparent shell entity” that also received nearly $3.5 million in payments from Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company where Archer and Biden sat on the board, according to a U.S. Senate report.

Among other destinations, Rosemont Seneca Bohai sent hundreds of thousands of dollars in regular transfers to Biden in 2014 and 2015.

Biden’s spokesman, Mesires, didn’t comment on those transfers other than to say, “Mr. Biden has had no ownership interest in Rosemont Seneca Bohai at any time.”


The Big Steal Is Underway but Trump Won’t Surrender

By: Cliff Kincaid

Fox News and other media keep showing the “popular vote” for president. Twitter should put a warning flag on that but won’t. Our system doesn’t recognize the “popular vote” winner as the winner of the presidential election. Ask Hillary. But so-called “popular votes” are indeed relevant in terms of votes that are being manufactured in states like Georgia and Pennsylvania to “give” Joe Biden the illusion of victory.

It’s sad that Tucker Carlson, whose program was so good prior to the election, had to rely on people like Bill Hemmer after the “results” started coming in. On election night, Carlson was sandwiched in between Chris Wallace and others to comment on how the polls were wrong. But the much more serious malfeasance is the reported theft of elections in such states as Wisconsin and Michigan, where ballots were suddenly discovered and entered into the election systems of those states.

Hemmer and most of the rest of the Fox News crew are wedded to the liberal media narrative that is designed to guarantee a Joe Biden “victory” through phony projections and vote counts. But President Trump has already declared victory based on the reality of what he knows to be happening.

Trump also has a good memory, backed up by actual facts, of how Democrats were stealing presidential elections as far back as 1960 when Democratic Party machines “found” votes for JFK. “You gotta swallow this one,” somebody said to JFK’s opponent, Richard Nixon, to get him to surrender to the fraud.

Trump won’t surrender.

Should we be surprised that the Deep State is working with the Democratic Party to steal the election from President Trump? My home page at America’s Survival, Inc. had run a column by JB Williams back in August predicting the election chaos and election theft. He wrote, “This is about a first time ever universal mail-in election, where millions of votes will pour in through the U.S. mail with no tracking, no way to verify the voter’s eligibility, no way to know who voted, who they voted for or if every legitimate vote was cast and counted properly. In other words, no way to challenge the outcome of this election.”

In fact, however, President Trump is challenging the projected “outcome.” One of his recent Tweets declares, “All of the recent Biden claimed States will be legally challenged by us for Voter Fraud and State Election Fraud. Plenty of proof – just check out the Media. WE WILL WIN! America First!” Twitter, of course, tried to censor the Tweet.

New GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is fighting for Trump. So is Arizona Republican Senate candidate Martha McSally, who points out that the media “got nearly EVERY state wrong.” She adds, “They predicted a blowout, and Republicans showed up in greater numbers than in 2016.” Yet, mysteriously, Trump is on course to lose the presidency? It’s because so-called “popular votes” are being manufactured or discovered to turn states that Trump won against the president.

Regarding her home state, which shows her “losing,” she notes, “Arizona has major implications for the White House and Senate, and this fight is more contentious than ever. Talking heads on TV are counting us out BEFORE votes are counted. Are you serious?”

The only reason the media are projecting her “defeat” is their own skewed “analysis” of the results, including votes not even counted!

And you thought the Biden campaign wanted to count every vote? Don’t believe it. They don’t want to take into account the legitimate and legal votes, only the fake ones that will turn states won by Trump in Biden’s favor.

Major censorship, in addition to vote-stealing, is underway, in order to prevent the American people from understanding what is really going on behind the scenes.

One way or another, the results will be disputed, meaning that President Trump has to remain in office, citing the same forces in the coup against him as being behind election theft. Christian broadcaster Brannon Howse has posted extraordinary interviews with various national security experts on how the intelligence agencies can manipulate elections.

Major investigations by the Attorney General should already be underway. But William Barr is a former CIA analyst and his loyalties may lie elsewhere. At the very least, Barr could announce a Special Counsel investigation of the Biden family corruption charges.

President Trump has a team of lawyers challenging the vote theft operations but he could also announce a special group of election experts to conduct a forensic examination of how the votes have been counted and changed. On this basis, so-called “votes” that came out of nowhere have to be rejected.

Veteran investigative reporter John Solomon of Just the News has announced a similar effort.

The same kind of process is used to determine whether a particular document is legitimate. If you have seen episodes of the TV show “Pawn Stars,” where people get money in exchange for rare books or documents or other items, the owners of the shop always insist on evidence of legitimacy. That is called “provenance.”  It means you have to determine who has custody of the documents so that fraud is ruled out.

In the case of many mail-in ballots, which have mysteriously appeared overnight, there is no way they can be verified as legitimate. Hence, they must be rejected.

I came to understand the mechanism of vote fraud years ago by looking at cases of people who “voted” but were registered to vote in abandoned houses and vacant lots. What’s happening now is much worse and on a much larger scale.

After the media and other “official sources” declare Biden the winner, the role of Fox stalwarts such as Lou Dobbs and Tucker Carlson to keep telling the truth will be more important than ever before. You know that President Trump has no intention to concede to the powerful forces of darkness trying yet again to subvert his presidency.


The Steal is On – Vote Fraud – Update

By: Ron Wright

[My posts were set on private. Fixed]

I’m bumping this post “Keep the Faith”. There was no Blue Wave!

Republicans will keep the Senate and are coming close to taking the House. There was no Blue Wave. The Democrats were smashed in the down-ticket races. Why?

Because of major vote fraud in key states in only the Presidential race: MN, MI, WI, NC, AZ, and PA.

Fraudulent votes came in during the dark early morning hours with large numbers of votes for Biden only with no change on down-ticket races.

I believe a statistical forensic analysis will prove this beyond all doubt by astronomical long odds.


Do not be misled by the news or the radio. Chill but keep your powder dry.

A MUST-READ from the American Mind (The Claremont Institute):

Election Day 2 and Beyond – American Mind

We have secured the SCOTUS for at least 5 to 10 years with justices who are constitutionalists.

We held the US Senate and at least gained 7 seats in the House. No major changes will pass the Senate if our senators have any spine at all.

Thank our founding fathers who understood the human frailties of people by giving us the Constitution, which provides a separate but equal divided government.

The actual popular vote for President was very close. You returned the Senate and added at least 7 seats in the House.  There was no blue wave.  There will be no descent into a totalitarian government.

What happened was organized vote fraud in several battlefield states. The evidence is substantial and in plain view. These questionable ballots are going in one direction, Biden.  Trump expanded the base with Black and Hispanic voters, translating into maintaining the Senate and taking more seats in the House.  Why didn’t this translate into votes for Trump? This fails the smell test.

By providence, we have a street fighter as our POTUS. Trump will engage on your behalf and fight this effort by the self-dealing Deep State. The effect will turn us into a Banana Republic.

Pray for POTUS and our Country.


Trump Wins Re-election

By: Cliff Kincaid

At this point in the chaos, we know one thing for sure: President Trump is still the president, and that he won re-election. Any number of warnings from Twitter or claims to the contrary from “official sources” in the media can’t undermine his claims. In the final analysis, according to the Constitution, electors in the Electoral College vote for the president. This fact is critical in the days and weeks ahead.

In short, the president is not elected by Twitter or the media. He is not even elected by “the people.” He is elected by electors picked by state legislators. Faced with evidence of election fraud, the states can pick electors who will vote for Trump, the legitimate president, and legitimate winner. None of this is a mystery. This is the way the system works.

Let’s remember that, in the early hours of Wednesday morning, after election day, President Trump declared victory. He said, “Frankly, we did win this election.” There were no ifs, ands, or buts in that statement. He declared victory. He understands that according to the way elections are usually decided, the votes cast on election day decide the winner. On that basis as well, he won. His statement holds as much weight, or even more than any subsequent statement to the contrary that might possibly be made by Joe Biden or his supporters.

But because he is Trump, the enemy of the Deep State, his claim of victory was disputed.

Transcripts or stories about the president’s remarks tried to put a spin on them, saying his statement of victory was “premature” or even “false.” That’s their opinion. What matters is what the legitimate president of the United State says. Trump has more legitimacy than those opposing him in the media or Big Tech. They have worked to destroy his presidency for years. Why should we believe them now?

Members of the media elected themselves. Trump was elected by the people through a constitutional system.

Stories now appearing that Trump still has a path to victory miss the point. He has already declared victory and has recognized mysterious ballot dumps and irregularities giving certain states to Biden as illegitimate. His perception, based on reality, is shared by many.  Twitter censors his and other Tweets about election fraud. But Twitter is a private entity subservient to the Deep State forces that have been trying to overthrow Trump.  Twitter is the same entity that tried to suppress evidence of Biden’s corruption found on his son’s laptop.

Trump went on, adding that “a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people [who voted for Trump], and we won’t stand for it.” He didn’t name that “group of people” but we know, based on attempts to overthrow his elected government over the last four years, that he is referring to the Deep State. These are mostly in the CIA and FBI.

At the current time, this is really all that we need to know. The president understands what is happening since he has been a victim of these forces for four years. He understands the nature of the enemies of our democratic Republican form of government better than anyone else. He has lived through their reign of terror and the media’s reign of error.

The media and other Trump opponents can scream all they want. They can dispute the evidence of fraud in the election process. They can send more “protesters” into the streets. But what matters is what Trump is saying and doing. He is fighting to save his presidency from the same forces which have already tried and failed to throw him out of office.

When push comes to shove, Trump can tell those who want him out of office to shove it.

It is significant and appropriate that the president’s personal attorney Rudolph Giuliani is leading the legal effort against election fraud. As a U.S. Attorney, Giuliani used the power of the racketeering or RICO statute to break up the Mafia. His success helped make him mayor of New York City.   In this case, he is up against similar forces. The Deep State is a kind of modern-day Mafia. If he and Trump can succeed in the same way, America will be spared from a country falling into the grip of Mafia-like forces committed to globalism and engaged in massive corruption.

With these stakes, Trump can’t back away from his statements that he won the election. His supporters are depending on him. He can’t vacate the White House under any circumstances. He knows – and they know – that he won.

As the nation moves ahead, it will be important for people to understand that the Deep State, including the forces of censorship and even some “conservative” publications, will work to evict Trump from office

Drudge and Fox News in general have already turned on Trump. It remains to be seen if Lou Dobbs and Tucker Carlson will stay vigilant under pressure. We can anticipate that the Wall Street Journal editorial board will cave.

The New York Post, which was so good on exposing Biden corruption, has sold out, running a story about newly elected Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene that regurgitates garbage calling her a conspiracy theorist. She is the new face of Republican women in the GOP and won with almost 75 percent of the vote.

I wrote about Greene before, noting that she was the candidate who dared to take on George Soros. Since Trump declared victory on November 3, she has been vocal about stopping the “Biden Steal.” She dares to say that “the Democrats, Big Tech, and the Fake News Media are trying to STEAL this election.”

She adds, “This is the biggest VOTER FRAUD operation in American history.” Greene understands that the forces of the Deep State are deep in corruption of a financial and sexual nature, as represented in the Hunter Biden laptop. She knows that if Joe Biden “wins” the election by hook or by crook, the American people will be denied the opportunity to get to the bottom of this cesspool. America’s constitutional system will be dead, and all of the Obamagate and Biden investigations will be terminated without charges.

She’s right, and the evidence which is available despite the censorship proves her point. So why aren’t more members of Congress following her lead? It’s because House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy tried to distance himself from Greene’s run for Congress. He is not a true leader.

Republican members of Congress can either choose McCarthy or Trump. The choice is clear. Greene chooses Trump.

Though elected as the leader of House Republicans, McCarthy has roots in the “moderate” wing of the Republican Party, known as the Ripon Society. By contrast, Greene represents millions of Trump supporters and new Republicans who want him to fight for the White House and stay in office no matter what his enemies say and do.

In his 2007 Ripon Society Profile, McCarthy said the historical figures he would most like to meet included the Founding Fathers “because they created a government of individual liberty and freedom that defeated every obstacle of tyranny threatening our way of life over the last 230 years and represented a force of good in the world…”

What would the Founders do in this case? They conceived an electoral system that enables the people to exercise their will through state legislatures and electors who can bypass clear evidence of fraudulent election returns meant to install Biden in office. It’s time to win this one for the Founders.
