The Losers of the Red Bull Junior Team - Part 3 - /r/Formula1 Editorial Team

The Losers of the Red Bull Junior Team - Part 3: The Vettel Age (2007-2009)

by TheStateOfIt
In case you missed it:
Sebastian Vettel was the driver of the Red Bull Junior Team. Others that entered F1 in Red Bull’s name before him had been hit or miss. Christian Klien was a distant second fiddle to David Coulthard, Vitantonio Liuzzi was just there, Scott Speed had his notorious temper and the less said about Robert Doornbos, the better. But Vettel was the driver that made everyone believe in Marko. We all know his heroics in Toro Rosso in 2008 and becoming a title challenger in 2009, but even his rookie year impressed many. A point on debut as a last-minute replacement for Robert Kubica, his fourth place in China and even threatening for the win at Fuji.
Everyone started to believe in the Red Bull programme at this time. If such a star like Vettel could come from this academy, who’s to say there can’t be more?
I bet the rest of these hopefuls thought so too.

The Vettel Age (2007-2009)

Pedro Bianchini (BRA) - 2007 - Formula BMW
If life was fair, Bianchini wouldn’t be on this list. The list of Red Bull Junior drivers says he joined in 2007, but he was on Red Bull’s watchlist for a much longer time. In fact, in his karting days, he made an appearance on Brazillian late-night television decked out in full Red Bull gear. In any other timeline, this would be a relic for many an F1 fan, watching a current driver gain national attention at his infancy.
Not in this timeline, though. In one of his first tests in Formula BMW, he got caught up in a major accident that broke his fibula and sidelined him for the first bit of the season. With minimal testing, missed races, and a still healing injury, Bianchini struggled and performed well below expectations. Naturally, the results-hungry Marko monster’s appetite wasn’t whetted, and threw the poor kid out of the programme. He left full-time motorsport after another unsuccessful season in Formula BMW, though he still races karts on the rare occasion.
He now works as a sales coordinator for some company called Fibrafix, thanks to some LinkedIn and Facebook diving. Once again, it’s not stalking if it’s research.
Kevin Mirocha (GEPOL) - 2007 - Formula BMW
Mirocha suffered a similar fate as Bianchini, being dropped after a single season in Formula BMW with average-ish results, the most being a podium at Silverstone. However, there was no broken fibula to blame. The Polish-German driver was just above-average, but once again, Marko’s theory of development is not improving above-average drivers to the top of the table, but rather that all his drivers should already be at peak performance.
After being kicked out of Red Bull, his move to F3 the year after showed a hint of promise, but joining HBR Racing in the following year’s Euroseries proved to be a massive mistake as the whole team collapsed mid-season, taking Mirocha with them into the pit of uncertainty. Despite that, he found minor redemption in the 2010 Formula Renault NEC Championship, winning a race in a part-time drive. This made him a surprise call-up to GP2 in 2011 for Ocean Racing Technology, however that drive was short-lived. Scoring zero points, he was dumped mid-season for a fellow Red Bull dropout, Brendon Hartley.
His final showing was a much more successful season in Palmer Formula Two (to differentiate it from current Formula Two), even winning a race, but as the series died a quiet death, so did Mirocha’s racing career. A peek at his Instagram indicated he took up automobile photography and the like. That was over three years ago, though, so lord knows what’s happening with him now.
Daniel Morad (CAN) - 2007 - Formula BMW
I can tell you, with 95% confidence, that if you’ve seen a go-kart crash on YouTube before, you’ve seen Daniel Morad. I know you’ve seen Daniel Morad, even if you yourself didn’t know it was him. Y’all remember this incident, right? It’s literally on every ‘celebrates too early’ clickbait compilation on YouTube.
And that guy is Daniel Morad.
Morad, however, is much more than a karting mishap. Under Red Bull, he was the 2007 Formula BMW USA Champion. All good, right? He was immediately dumped by Red Bull.
Morad has no idea why. Compatriot Robert Wickens was also under the Red Bull Junior Team when he won the Formula BMW USA Championship just a year prior. He got chances in Formula Atlantic, Formula Renault, Formula 3, A1GP and Palmer Formula Two under Red Bull’s employ. Morad got a one-line email saying he was out of the programme.
He was able to make it to A1GP at least, but with Team Canada out of the series, he exploited his Lebanese heritage to race for constant backmarkers Team Lebanon. In the final season of the series, Morad did the team a favour by scoring their first ever points finish in the entire series.
His next career move to GP3 wasn’t as fruitful, but he did get lucky with the reversed-grid system to take a victory in the Silverstone sprint race. That year was also the same year where he won the Rotax Max Challenge, which was the race of THAT incident. For the past decade, though, he’s moved on from hands-free go-karting to sportscars, finding some success in GT3 cars in IMSA’s endurance series, winning the 2017 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona in the GTD class. Nowadays he’s also a Twitch streamer as well, making appearances in several iRacing events alongside the best of the best.
Tom Dillmann (FRA) - 2007-2008 - Formula Three
Yep, I consider him a failure of Red Bull’s Junior Team, despite his appearances in Formula E. Dropped right from Red Bull after a disappointing start to his Formula 3 Euro Series campaign, Dillmann’s career never settled at all after that, hopping from team to team, series to series, category to category for nearly every year after. As much as motorsport is about breaking away from the pack, entropy in your career moves hasn’t translated to results for Dillmann.
The most Dillmann got out of his career was a championship in the decaying Formula Not-Renault V8 3.5 series in 2016 and a win in GP2 in 2012, being another benefactor of the reverse grid system in the Sprint Race. His championship in Formula Not-Renault did earn him a reserve driver spot at Venturi in Formula E, which he cashed in to race in a few events when main drivers Stephane Sarrazin and Edoardo Mortara weren’t around. It seemed Dillmann finally had something going right in his racing career in his second season deputising for Venturi, nabbing 4th at New York.
Then he joined NIO. And, for those not familiar with Formula E, NIO suuuuuuuuucks. Dillmann’s only real comparison, his teammate Turvey, was streets ahead. Like, literally, because Formula E runs on streets, and Turvey was normally ahead, so literally, like... streets ahead. Please laugh. Anyway, he’s now testing with Formula Two teams has proved to be really, really competent in the world’s vacation to simracing, being quite the star in The Race’s All-Star events and finishing 2nd in the Virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Mika Mäki (FIN) - 2007-2009 - Formula Renault 2.0 / Formula 3
His early career was bright. Performed well in his national karting championships. Barely lost out on two Formula BMW trophies to the same guy. Red Bull comes and signs him up. And, unlike most on this list, he did not disappoint in his first season, winning the Italian Formula Renault Championship in 2007. His next season in Formula 3 Euroseries got off to a blinding start, winning two races and being in hot contention by round six.
Then he got into an off-track accident. He crashed his Nissan 350Z in a tunnel, spearing through a metal railing. Mercifully, he was uninjured, but questions were raised about how such a serious crash occurred in a 40 km/h tunnel late at night. I’m unsure how the investigation went and whether Mäki was punished or not, but you can just tell his results were affected. His hot streak in F3 suddenly ran cold and though he managed a few more decent results, his championship hopes were gone.
He still claimed another race victory in next year’s Euroseries and even finished second in the F3 Masters event, but Red Bull had enough and cast him away. One final, hapless, half-hearted, half-season effort with Motorpark Academy the next year saw him finish last in the F3 Euroseries he had been contending for just two years earlier. That was the end of Mäki’s racing career.
But Mäki isn’t dead yet. From the looks of things, he’s gone batshit insane. He’s started his own media/marketing/communications company called Ajaton, which means Timeless in Finnish. His company’s tagline is ”FRUITY AS FUCK”. Mika himself dressed up like a fucking dictator in his company profile picture. I don’t know how much of this is good PR or creative marketing, or how much of it is Mika being mad. Whatever it is, I’m all aboard the wacky Mäki train.
Dani Juncadella (ESP) - 2008-2009 - Formula BMW
Red Bull seriously missed the boat with Juncadella, and Juncadella missed the boat with Red Bull. How did this mutual boat-missing happen? He performed solidly in his two seasons in Formula BMW under Red Bull, coming in as a runner-up to Felipe Nasr in 2009, though most credit to that goes to Mucke Motorsport getting themselves DQ’ed from five races. Then Red Bull Junior Team did their traditional purging of talent, and Juncadella was one that got exiled from the team going into 2010.
Back then, it was a shame… for Red Bull. After a year getting acclimated to F3 machinery, Juncadella made himself famous as he won the 2011 Macau Grand Prix. The next year, he took domination to new heights, winning the 2012 F3 Euroseries, the F3 European Championship (which was basically the Euroseries with a hat on top) and the Masters of Formula Three. Red Bull had missed out on the biggest name in Formula Three.
But then it would be Juncadella missing out on Red Bull’s support system. Despite his F3 success and subsequent tests with Ferrari and Williams, there was nothing going for him in single-seaters. Him signing to Mercedes brought about some rumour with being Mercedes’ development driver, but all this led to was him making the sideways switch to DTM.
He did snatch the role of reserve driver at Force India in 2014, appearing in three Grand Prix weekends, but he got sick of Formula One politics and testing restrictions, retreating back to his role in DTM. He hasn’t found the same success in touring cars, though, propping up the table in most of his DTM seasons. Only a solitary victory at Brands Hatch in 2019 and a last lap battle with Max Verstappen in Team Redline’s simracing championship were indications of Juncadella’s previous success in Formula Three.
Mirko Bortolotti (ITA) - 2009 - Palmer Formula Two
Bortolotti, like Juncadella, had tons of hype and talent behind him. There wasn’t that much of it during his karting days or his early single-seater career, but the hype around him exploded when he won the 2008 Italian Formula Three series by an absolute landslide, with a seven-race winning streak being more than enough to seal the championship. His reward was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to test with Ferrari at Fiorano.
He cashed in that reward by setting the F2008 lap record around Fiorano. Sure, testing limits heavily restricted the running of Ferrari’s race and regular testers on Fiorano, but still, beating that lap record in what was supposed to be a token, prize-winning joyride made everyone sit up and take note. The hype meter went through the roof when he signed on to Red Bull’s junior team, and finishing a solid fourth in Palmer Formula Two gave him the chance to test for Toro Rosso over the winter.
In the first week of January 2010, the press tipped him to replace Jaime Alguersuari for the upcoming season at Toro Rosso.
In the second week of January 2010, Bortolotti was removed from Red Bull’s junior team.
Granted, he did say he wasn’t exactly ready for Formula One in the midst of all the rumours, but Red Bull suddenly pulling the plug was the last thing everyone expected. Ferrari’s driver academy swooped in and planted him in a GP3 ride for 2010, but he struggled in the switch of categories and was booted out of that junior driver programme after a year in the GP3 midfield. He won the Palmer Formula Two championship in 2011, but the rapid shift from Italy’s next Formula One driver to GP3 midfielder had already disillusioned the 21 year-old Italian, and after one final test with Williams as a prize for winning the F2 championship, he shifted to sportscars.
Bortolotti’s shift to sportscars has been fairly successful, becoming the champion of the final Megane Series Championship in 2013 before signing on to Lamborghini’s factory squad in 2014. Before his shift to Audi in 2020, he won the Blancpain Endurance Championship for them in 2017 and took class wins for them in both the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. All congratulations to Mirko, but who knows where he could’ve been had Marko done what the press thought he’d do a decade ago: stick him in the car.
Not everyone can be Vettel. If everyone is Vettel, nobody is. (yes I ripped Syndrome’s line, it’s a badass one). However, this section contains probably the saddest stories, where many of these drivers actually proved their talent at a young age, like Morad, Juncadella and Bortolotti. And yet, despite all that, they never got a fair shake with Red Bull.
We have one final part left to go, the fourth-part of this four-part series. The next part features the losers of the Red Bull from more recent times, coming from textile salesmen, sons of Top Gear personnel and an actual, legit, hero.

We Are Coming For You – Part 2

Start|Previous Part| Next Part
Here's part 2 I hope you enjoy it.
Just a quick warning there is some light nsfw content towards the end of this part.
Sitting around a table in the private room that had been given to them Tucker groaned as he held his head in his hands.
“One of these days you’re gonna learn moderation.” Thatcher said as he and Vic played cards together.
“I got challenged to a drinking match.” Tucker groaned “The dignity of the whole human race was at stake.”
As Thatcher smirked at him Vic said “You know half the stuff you drank has probably never been consumed by a human before?”
“You hear that Thatch? I’m a pioneer.” he lifted his head up to grin at his boss only to immediately regret it.
“Here.” Thatcher said taking pity on him and pouring him a drink. “Have some hair of the dog.”
Mumbling his thanks Tucker downed the drink in one gulp making Thatcher shake his head. “So where’s Asami at?”
“No idea.” Thatcher replied as he examined the cards he was dealt. “Hopefully doing her job.”
“Speaking of which, what’s the plan here boss? We sticking with these guys or what?” Vic asked.
Giving him a nod Thatcher said “This group is as good a place to start as any. We’ll see how they operate, their relation to other gangs in the system, the kind of fire power they usually run with. If they’re useful we’ll hang around otherwise we’ll jump ship if and when a more serviceable option presents itself.”
“Sounds good to me.” Tucker said as he reached for the bottle only for Thatcher to pull it out of reach.
As the door to their room opened the three of them looked up to see Asami enter and make her way over to their table. “Morning Fellas.” she said loudly into Tucker’s ear as she passed making him wince and groan.
Frowning at her as she put her feet up on the table with a smirk Tucker asked “So where have you been?”
“Oh, you know. Just improving relations with humanities galactic neighbours.” She grinned as she grabbed Thatchers bottle and took a swig.
Blinking at her Tucker said “What, with Captain Furball?” getting a nod from her he turned to look at Thatcher and gestured to Asami with his thumb “How come she gets to fuck the aliens but I don’t?”
“Because the ones she screws don’t try to eat her.” Vic said dryly.
“Well, I wouldn’t go so far to say there was no eating involved.” she snickered.
“Don’t cats have barbs on their-” Tucker started only for Thatcher to interrupt.
“Enough.” he silenced Tucker before looking to Asami. “At least tell me you got something out of it.” He said only to hold up his had to forestall the predictable response “Something pertaining to the mission?”
Pulling a datastick from her pocket Asami tossed it to Thatcher who caught it out the air. “Pulled this directly from Artum’s computer. Seems like our new friends are pretty low on the totem pole but the captain’s the ambitious sort. He’s got oppo research on most of the other gangs in this part of the system and if I didn’t know any better I’d say he’s thinking about making a power play and working his way up the ranks. With a little bit of help he might even get a seat at the big boys table.”
“This Tucker,” Thatcher said as he skimmed through the data Asami had pilfered “is why she gets to fuck the aliens.”
“I found out some important stuff too.” he huffed “For example I bet you didn’t know that Kreeduds can’t hold their liquor for shit.”
“I’m sure that’ll be very useful to know.” Thatcher said absently as he turned off the datapad and tucked the datastick away for safe keeping. “Let’s get something to eat and see if we can find out if Asami’s boyfriend has decided if he wants be a social climber or if he’s content where he is.”
Getting to their feet the four of them left their room and headed to a cantina. They had found out the day before that Artum’s gang controlled the entire station and the area they were in was reserved solely for the use of his crew which numbered in the hundreds. As soon as they entered the mess hall Artum spotted them and called out “There you are my friends! Come, come join me!” he said as he shooed away the men who had been sitting at his table to make space for the humans. “You can come sit on my lap my dear.” he purred at Asami who simply gave him an amused smirk and sat in the seat next to him. “I trust you’ve found my hospitality acceptable?”
“You’ve been more than generous.” Thatcher replied.
“Think nothing off it. I like to think I have an eye for talent and when I see it I’ll go to no ends to see they become mine.” he said as he took a long pull from his bottle before offering it to Asami. “I’ve been asking around about your species. No one this far out seems to know much about you, just rumours and third hand accounts from the war. Most Union races seem to agree that you Humans are little more than savages; you should hear how the Draastrekians talk about you, you’ve become the bogeyman for an entire galactic power. Oh, they’ll grandstand and declare they’ll tear you Humans limb from limb and feast on your entrails given the chance but they’re all pissing themselves at the thought of another war with your kind.”
“And how do you see us?” Thatcher wondered.
“Draastrekians may not be the smartest creatures in the galaxy but their military might is undeniable. And any race formidable enough to give them pause shouldn’t be so easily discounted as savages.” he said, his golden eyes examining the four of them closely “Did you truly burn their brood-worlds to ash?”
“Not personally.” Tucker said as he reached for the bottle only for Asami to slap his hand away.
“We humans tend to take a very pragmatic approach to warfare.” Thatcher said “You come at us once we’re damn well gonna make sure you never come at us again.”
“And we can be pretty inventive when we have to be.” Asami added as she leaned back in her chair and brought her hands behind her head, drawing Artum’s gaze towards her chest.
Grinning hungrily at her Artum said “I think the four of you will be a great asset to my crew. And I seem to be in the market for some new lieutenants.”
“Your men going to be cool taking orders from us?” Vic asked “As Thatch said we’re not looking to step on any toes and I can’t see them being too pleased with us being here all of five minutes and already outranking them.”
“You’re underestimating how useful your species reputation can be in this part of the galaxy and in this line of work.” Artum said as he reached out to squeeze Asami’s thigh “Especially after they all saw how Asami handled Dren.”
“Just so we know what you want us to do, are you looking to expand your territory or are you just interested in maintaining what you have?” Thatcher asked.
“First why don’t you tell me what you think of my operation.” Artum replied.
“Haven’t really seen much enough to give an opinion.” Thatcher shrugged.
“From what I’ve seen it seems pretty second rate if you ask me.” Asami said idly.
“Oh?” Artum narrowed his eyes at her “We control this entire starport; anyone entering or leaving the system has to pass through us not to mention this is where all the minerals that are mined in this part of the asteroid belt are processed.”
“And that all sounds very impressive.” Asami replied “Until you realise that means when the Union finally decide to get off their asses and retake the system through force you’re the one whose gonna take the brunt of their fleet at full strength. As for the asteroid mining I can’t imagine that’s anywhere near as profitable as mining planetside. I mean, if you own the whole planet it’s not like the miners have any choice who they sell it to, up here if they don’t like your price they can simply fly to the next port and try their luck there.” she explained “So all in all you’re just a backwoods crew happy to pick up scraps while acting as cannon fodder for the rest of the gangs that are set up towards the centre of the system.” she said as she brought the bottle up to her lips only for Artum to slap it out of her hands.
Letting out a snarl Artum roughly grasped her wrist and yanked her towards him “Just because I took you to bed does not mean I shall tolerate such disrespect straight to my face!”
Unfazed by his sudden rage Asami smiled as she leaned in closer to him “I’m sorry baby.” she purred huskily as she moved her unrestrained hand to his thigh and began slowly sliding her hand up and down. “I was just teasing. Forgive me?” she asked seductively as she moved her hand higher.
Feeling himself stiffen at her touch Artum’s anger started to subside and began to loosen his grip on her arm only to gasp when he felt something sharp poke him. Looking down his eyes went wide as he saw Asami was holding a knife to his groin.
As he whipped his head back up to look at her he found her smiling pleasantly at him. “You ever grab me like that again and I’ll geld you, understand?” giving her a nod Artum released her wrist. “Good boy.” she smiled as she affectionately patted his crotch before stabbing the knife into his chair making him jump in his seat. “I’m gonna go grab some food.” she announced as she stood up.
“Get me some while you’re at it.” Tucker called after her only for Asami to flip him off over her shoulder without even turning to look at him.
Staring after her retreating form in abject fascination Artum grabbed the knife and yanked it out from his seat and tossed it on the table as he looked at the three humans opposite him who seemed unperturbed by what had just transpired. As a grin tugged on the corners of his mouth Artum let out a throaty laugh and said “I love human women! Are all your females like her?”
“Asami’s one of a kind.” Thatcher replied with a small smile.
“Do you have any idea how long it’s been since anyone has even dared to threaten my life? And in less than a day she’s held a gun to my head and a knife to my groin!” he roared with laughter “You humans truly are a fascinating species. I’m sure you’ll be very useful to me.” he grinned.
“You still haven’t told us your goals.” Vic pointed out.
Letting out a grunt Artum replied “What do you know of the power balance in this system.”
“Just that the Praxian government lost control of it and is now being run by pirate gangs.” Tucker said.
“That’s right.” Artum nodded his head “A few years ago someone began uniting and organising the larger gangs in they system. They co-ordinated attacks and raids on such a scale that by the time the Conglomeration realised we were all working together it was too late; we had already taken over every starport and blockaded every planet until they surrendered control to us. And once we got our claws into the system they were powerless to oust us.” he grinned.
“Who’s this ‘someone’ who got everyone working together?” Thatcher asked.
“No idea.” Artum shrugged his shoulders. “Never met him in person. The heads of the biggest gangs, the ones now running entire planets and calling themselves Pirate Lords are the only ones to have ever been in contact with him and from what I’ve heard they don’t even know his species.”
“Sounds like a fairytale to me.” Tucker said “Some shadowy puppeteer pulling the stings from behind the scenes that no ones ever seen.”
“Believe what you will but trust me when I say there’s no way those gangs would have started working together of their own volition. Without him to control them they wouldn’t have been able to stop stabbing each other in the back long enough to present a united front against the Conglomeration.”
“And where do you fit into this?” Thatcher asked.
“As much as I hate to admit it Asami was right.” he begrudgingly said as the woman in question returned to the table carrying a tray of food.
“I usually am.” she said as she slid onto Artum’s lap as if she hadn’t just threatened to castrate him.
Raising an eyebrow at the woman Artum looked towards the other humans who seemed not to take any notice of her perplexing behaviour. Chalking it up as another human idiosyncrasy Artum shook his head and began stroking her thigh as he continued “Compared to the self-entitled Pirate Lords who took over the colonies we are a lot smaller and joined up later. Which is why we are relegated to this ‘backwoods’ corner of the system as Asami so eloquently put it.”
“And I take it you want to change that?” Thatcher asked.
“That thought had occurred to me.” he admitted as he reached out towards Asami’s plate only for her stab her knife into the piece of meat he had tried to pick up. Staring into his eyes Asami brought the meat up to her mouth and tore a chunk off with her teeth before proffering it to Artum. Returning her stare with glowing eyes Artum took a bite of his own “You are a thrilling creature.” he declared with a lustful growl as he squeezed her thigh and moved his hand higher.
“mmm, down boy.” she said breathily as she slapped his hand “We’re talking business, there’ll be time for fun later.” she smiled as pulled the rest of the meat off of the knife with her teeth.
Seeing their new boss enthralled by the woman on his lap Thatcher cleared his throat and said “So you’re looking to expand and take one of these mining colonies for yourself? I think we can help with that.”
“Oh?” Artum asked with a raised eyebrow. “And how would you go about doing that?”
“Well for starters your outfit is too small. We make a play for the colonies as we are now any one of the bigger gangs will crush us before we set foot planetside. So we need to swell the ranks before we move against them.” Thatcher said “Tell me, what’s your relationship like with the other crews in this part of the system?”
“We’re pirates.” Artum said amused. “We tolerate each other so long as we don’t infringe on another’s turf.”
Nodding his head Thatcher said “There are two ways we can go about this. The first is we absorb the smaller gangs. We offer them a bigger piece of the pie if they’re willing to work for us. Those that reject us we kill the guys in charge. Either the guy who replaces him is a lot more amicable to working with us or the group will be splintered in the power vacuum and we’ll just pick up the scraps. We’ll only have to do this two or three times before word gets around and they start lining up to join us. Of course this comes with its own risks. The smaller gangs could band together to fight against us much like you all did against the Praxia Conglomeration or one of your larger rivals could take note of our expansion and try to poach them from us or even stage a pre-emptive strike against us and start a war to curtail our growth before we become to big for them to deal with.”
“And the second?” Artum asked as he accepted another mouthful from Asami.
“The second is we go after your biggest rivals first.” Thatcher replied “Taking them out would be difficult but if done right would be the quickest way to expand. Of course if we end up in an open war with them it’d leave us vulnerable to any of the smaller factions who have a shred of ambition as they’d see their biggest rivals weakened regardless of if we win or lose. But should we come out of it unscathed the smaller gangs would have no choice but to fall in line.”
“And which way would you recommend?” Artum asked as he thoughtfully drummed his fingers against Asami’s thigh.
Looking among themselves for a moment Tucker said “Go big or go home I say.”
“Who are the biggest competition?” Thatcher asked.
Thinking for a moment Artum’s lips curled into a grin “That would be Kranii. His is the second largest crew after mine which has always grated against his scales.”
“He Draastrekian?” Thatcher asked.
“Him and all his lieutenants. While the rank and file can be any species he only promotes Draastrekians to any position of command. I trust that won’t be a problem?”
“Not at all.” Vic replied.
“Us humans have had a lot of practice killing lizards.” Asami added with a smile.
“Let’s say you pull this off. What would you want in return?” He asked.
“We get you one of the colonies we get a share of all the profits. In perpetuity.” Thatcher said.
Narrowing his eyes at him Artum replied “You ask a lot.”
“We’re promising a lot.” Thatcher retorted “Look at it this way, you don’t get your planet we don’t get paid. Any gains you make between now and then is pure profit.”
Seeing him wavering Thatcher made a subtle gesture to Asami who tilted her head slightly in acknowledgement before leaning back into Artum’s chest and reached up to scratch him beneath his chin “Trust me baby, we’re worth every penny.”
As a throaty purr rumbled from his gullet Artum looked to Thatcher and said “What would you need to get it done?”
“A ship and any intel you have on them.” Thatcher replied.
“That’s it?” Artum asked with a raised eyebrow “His crew is comparable in size to my own.”
“The four of us will be more than sufficient.” Thatcher assured him “As Asami said, we’ve had a lot of practice killing lizards.”
A Month Later
Sitting in his private quarters Artum drank deeply from a bottle as he watched the two women dancing for his entertainment. One was Praxian, her glossy ashen fur which covered her slender body shone with an alluring lustre as her body swayed with the music. Her partner was an Oran, a cousin of the Draastrekians her kind was more humanoid than their brutish relatives; their green scales soft and smooth to the touch, her face more human than reptilian with a series of long hollow spines sprouting from her head in place of hair. As they ground their bodies together the two women began to strip what skimpy clothing they wore all the while casting seductive glances towards Artum.
Setting aside the bottle Artum snapped his fingers at the two women and let out a growl as they approached. Pulling them against him Artum forced his lips against the Praxian woman as his hands roamed their bodies. For her part the Oranian woman leaned in and kissed his neck as she started to pull off his shirt. Running her fingers through the fur on his chest the scaled woman started to kiss her way downwards when a voice called out “Not interrupting are we?”
Pulling his lips away from the woman his was kissing Artum looked passed them and saw Thatcher, Tucker and Asami standing in front of him. “How did you three get in here?” he frowned as he pushed the two woman off of him making them scowl at the interlopers.
“Your security’s not exactly the greatest in the galaxy.” Tucker smiled as his eyes roamed the near naked aliens still clinging to Artum. “An important guy like you might want to look into that.”
Letting out a grunt Artum grabbed the bottle and started to fill three glasses for them “I expected to hear from you sooner. I take it you’re here to requisition some of my men?”
Raising an eyebrow as he accepted the drink Thatcher asked “Why would we do that?”
Blinking at the man Artum said “To help you take out Kranii and his lieutenants?”
“That won’t be necessary, we’re just here to discuss who you want us to go after next.” Thatcher said with a smile.
“Do you mean to tell me you’ve taken over Kranii’s crew in a month?” he asked sceptically.
“It was two weeks actually.” Asami smiled as she moved to sit across from him “One week to track them down and another to do them all in. We spent the rest of the time stabilising the gang and hunting down the remnants of the command structure we missed. We left Vic behind to run things until you decide how you want to incorporate them into your crew.” she said as she brought her feet up onto the table between them.
Hearing a horrified gasp from the Oranian next to him Artum followed her gaze to Asami’s feet where his golden eyes went wide at the sight of the leather boots she was wearing. Noticing their attention Asami wiggled her foot back and forth to show them off. “What do you think? Nice aren’t they? I had Vic make me a pair. He’s good at fiddly stuff like this.” she explained “You can’t get stuff like this any more since the war ended, well not legally at least. Genuine Draast leather, nothing finer.” she said proudly. “Oh, speaking of which I had Vic make something for you too. Think of it as a parting gift from Kranii.” she said with a grin as she reached behind her and pulled out a box.
Reaching out with shaking hands Artum accepted the box and opened it to reveal a long leather duster. Lifting it out of the box made the Praxian woman gasp and cover her mouth in horror while the Oranian’s green skin had turned pale and she seemed like she was about to throw up. Taking pity on the two women Thatcher said “You girls can go now.”
Not needing to be told twice the two women scrambled to gather their clothes before fleeing the room. Watched as they ran away Tucker made to follow after them only for Thatcher to grab him by the collar and yank him backwards before he had taken more than two steps. Looking at the humans Artum said “I’m sure you’re aware this is going to spread all over the station in an hour?”
“You say that like it’s a bad thing.” Tucker grinned.
“Put it on. I wanna see how it fits.” Asami insisted.
Reluctantly doing as she asked Artum slipped on coat made from his former rival. “I’m not sure how I feel about wearing the skin of another sentient, even if Kranii only barely counted as such.”
“If nothing else it sends a message.” Thatcher replied. “Wearing the hide of your defeated rival; I’d certainly think twice about wanting to be on your bad side.”
“I think it looks great on you.” Asami purred as she stood up and pressed herself against her chest, her hands running over the leather coat “I can’t begin to tell you the things it makes me want to do to you.” she said as she seductively bit her bottom lip.
Enjoying the warmth of her body against his Artum stared down into Asami’s smouldering eyes as he grabbed hold of her waist “You are as captivating as you are terrifying my dear.” he declared as he leaned down to kiss her only for her to push him backwards.
“uh-uh, business first, fun later.” she grinned at him as she returned to her seat.
Letting out a growl Artum said “So how did you do it? How’d you take over Kranii’s crew so quickly?”
“Draastrekians aren’t the smartest around; they rely on brute strength and numbers to overwhelm their enemies.” Tucker said.
“They’re also proud and arrogant.” Thatcher continued “Once we found out where they called home it was easy enough to draw them out. We had Tucker hit all the bars in the station making sure to let everyone know that there was a human around shit talking the Draastrekians. They might be scared shitless of us humans as a whole but there’s no way they’d let a single one of us run his mouth on their own turf.”
“So Kranii got all his lizardmen buddies together for a good old fashion lynching.” Asami added.
“How did you know he wouldn’t sic his entire crew on him?” Artum asked.
“You remember how eager your pet lizard was to get a chance to maul one of us? We figured it was a better than even chance that they wouldn’t want to run the risk one of their men taking Tucker out before they got their hands on him.” Thatcher replied.
“Just want to reiterate that me being chased by a horde of angry lizards isn’t one of your better plans.” Tucker huffed as he sipped his drink.
“I don’t know about that. Seemed to work out well enough. And you had Vic following you at a discrete distance if something went wrong.” Asami smiled dismissively.
“And what if they just shot me in the back?” he asked with a frown.
“It wouldn’t have been a great loss.” she said with a shrug. “Besides I doubt they’d settle for something that quick. They’d want to play around with you first.”
“Anyway,” Thatcher said “Tucker led them to an empty storage hanger where Asami and I were already set up and waiting for them. It never occurred to them that they were walking straight into an ambush.”
“We took out half of them after we tossed a grenade right in their faces.” Asami said with a grin “Those that survived that tried to retreat but Vic came up behind them and cut off their means of escape. Sandwiched between us it didn’t take more than two minutes to finish them all off.”
“You make it sound so easy.” Artum muttered as he shook his head. “It must have been quite messy not to mention loud.”
“It was.” Thatcher agreed “It wasn’t long before the rest of his gang showed up.”
“And how did you deal with them?” Artum wondered.
With a small smile on his face Thatcher said “Kranii liked to rule with a ‘might makes right’ style of management. It was pretty well ingrained in them that only the toughest have the right to run things.”
“And when they walked in and saw Asami halfway through skinning Kranii himself it was abundantly clear who the biggest badass around here was.” Tucker grinned as he held out his fist to Asami who smirked and bumped her own fist against his.
Blinking his golden eyes as he stared at Asami Artum asked “You skinned him yourself?”
“Of course. Thatch and Vic were busy planning our next move and I wasn’t going to trust Tuck to do it.” she smiled “You have any idea how much Draast leather goes for back home? There are people who’ll pay a fortune to get their hands on Draastrekian hide and there no way I was going to let Tucker butcher it. Don’t worry, I saved the best cuts for us.” she said with a wink.
As Artum stared at the woman sitting proudly across from him his gaze was filled with equal measures or terror, disgust and wonder. He had heard stories about the war between the Terran Empire and the Draastreks Imperium, the Draastrekians in particular couldn’t shut up about it. He had heard about the savage ferocity these apes had displayed on the battlefield, the acts of barbarism they perpetrated against any unfortunate soul they captured, the righteous fury they rained down on planets leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake as they burned their way through the galaxy on their way to enact vengeance for the Draastrekian’s transgressions. It had gotten to the point where even the proud Draastrekians had to come begging for help from the Union.
It took the full might of the Union armada to give the humans their first major defeat in the war. In their arrogance the Union believed that after such a defeat the humans would come begging for peace. All it did was make them change their tactics. Avoiding full scale engagements the humans began guerilla warfare, never amassing in one place they forced the Union fleet to disperse opening themselves up to being whittled down as they were led into ambushes, the fractured command structure inherent in a fleet composed of many different nations hampered communication never allowing them to achieve a decisive victory against the humans. And with every battle they won they became all the more dangerous.
Like scavengers picking clean a carcass they salvaging the destroyed ships and stole technologies that would have taken them generations to develop independently. This rapid scientific advancement enabled them to field even deadlier warships and soon the gap between the Unions technologically superior fleet and the humans narrowed. Faced with superior tactics and now equatable technology the only advantage left to the Grand Fleet was their numbers.
That’s when the terrorist attacks began.
Not content with chipping away at the Grand Fleet the humans began targeting Union controlled space; raiding and demolishing any spaceports or shipyards they found, destroying any non human ship they encountered regardless of whether it was a civilian or military vessel. Entire harvests of agricultural worlds were poisoned or burned if not outright pilfered, mines were bombed and industrial centres sabotaged. The humans infiltrated scores of Union worlds, sowing discord and terror among the aliens as they targeted the planets infrastructure; destroying power plants plunging them into darkness, planetary defences were undermined leaving them defenceless should a hostile fleet arrive all the while all levels of government were targets for bombings resulting in chaos as their leaders were killed. The humans they managed to capture never lived for long, almost all taking their own lives but not before delivering a chilling message.
We Are Coming For You.
The weaker members of the Union could no longer afford to keep contributing to the Grand Fleet, not while their own space was ravaged by human privateers and so withdrew their ships in order to police their own domains though the humans didn’t let such an opening go unpunished. Without the protection of the Grand Fleet the humans were able pick off the retreating ships, harassing them all the way back to their own space weakening them further.
Finally faced with the prospect of their own planets coming under attack the Union reassembled the Grand Fleet and flew it straight to Earth. Ignoring any human settled worlds along the way they barrelled through Sol’s system defences to orbit the human homeworld where they delivered an ultimatum; surrender or Earth would be destroyed.
In an act of suicidal defiance the humans had dared them to open fire; delivering the warning that should Earth fall they had best be sure to kill every last human in the galaxy because they would Never Stop Coming for Them. As the leaders of the fleet consulted amongst themselves about how to react to this shocking display of indifference in the face of planetary annihilation a transmission was blasted from the planets surface in all directions before they block it. The message was simply this:
Destruction of Earth imminent. Do not return. Avenge Us.
Within days reports came flooding in to the Grand Fleet of an increase of attacks all throughout Union controlled space. These attacks were on a different sale and intensity than the ones meant to divert the Grand Fleet with civilian population centres being targeted indiscriminately and without mercy, ships were discovered filled with the desecrated and mutilated bodies of massacred crews. Even surrendering proved fruitless as the humans gave no quarter as they enacted their revenge.
As the full extent of what a Total War against the humans would entail became apparent to them the Union members were finally driven to seek peace, ultimately resulting in the Terran Empire joining the Union not as a subjugated species but as a member of equal standing to even the Unions founders.
Tales of these suicidal barbarians had spread throughout the Union but Artum had thought them mere exaggerations, not believing the Union would allow them membership if such atrocities were true. But hearing the three humans in front of him discuss selling the hide of a fellow sentient as if they were livestock with such callous indifference made his blood run cold as he wondered just what he had gotten himself into working with these humans. But despite this trepidation Artum couldn’t help but feel a thrill of excitement. This was a species feared the galaxy over, capable of single handedly bringing the greatest galactic power to it’s knees.
And they wanted to work for him.
All of a sudden he found possibilities he only dreamed of before were now within his grasp. Their reputation alone made them more valuable than the entirety of his crew but this display of savage efficiency in taking over Kranii’s crew would only enhance their infamy and his own by association. With their backing none would dare stand against him. Even the self proclaimed Pirate Lords squatting in their colonies would pause before antagonising such fearsome warriors.
As his fur rippled with exhilaration Artum he lifted his glass to them and said “My friends, you are even more impressive than your reputations led me to believe. I’m sure our partnership will be long and mutually beneficial.”
“Here here!” Tucker grinned as they downed their drinks.
Refilling their glasses Artum said “You haven’t told me how you plan to get me a colony.”
“What’s the matter sweetie, don’t you trust us?” Asami smiled as she slowly ran a finger around the rim of her glass.
“The four of you managed to accomplish a feat that would have required a long and bloody war in less than a month.” he returned her smile. “You can’t blame me for being curious about what you’ll do next.”
“You know what curiosity did to the cat don’t you?” she asked teasingly as she moved to sit next to him and press herself into his side.
Seeing the confused look on his face Thatcher said “I don’t think that idiom has made it this far out yet.” Giving him a shrug Asami snuggled closer to the Praxian, her hand slipping beneath his new coat to stroke his chest as he wrapped his arm around her waist. “As for how we plan to take over one of the colonies we’re going to have to tread carefully. We need to assimilate every crew unaffiliated with the Pirate Lords in order to build up our military strength in order to be taken seriously but we need to do it quickly and quietly. If we’re discovered too soon they may perceive us as a threat and move to crush us before we threaten their position.”
Nodding his head Artum asked “And once we have absorbed all the other gangs?”
“There are two options we can take.” Thatcher replied as he held up a finger “First we find out which one of them is the biggest asshole among them. Then we approach his rivals and make a deal with them; we’ll deal with the prick and they give us their support in exchange for a share of the profits from the mines.”
“You want me to give up even more shares?” Artum frowned.
“We could try to do it without their help but that’s risky. For one we don’t know how fraternal these guys are; they might not take kindly to one of their own being attacked. They may decided to come to our targets aid and put us down to send a message to the whole system that they are untouchable so don’t even try coming at them. If they get something for doing nothing they’re less likely to act against us.”
“And what if we succeed in taking the colony but they decide we are an easy target in our weakened state?” Artum asked.
“Which is why we need to pay them off. If they get cash for doing nothing they’re less likely to get greedy and come after us as it would leave them open to attack themselves.” Thatcher explained.
Letting out a grunt Artum asked “And the second option?”
“The second option is we go for the weakest guy.” he said holding up a second finger “Instead of attacking them we ingratiate ourselves with them; offer to add our might to theirs. Adding our crew to theirs will help consolidate his power and make his position more secure.”
“And what if he rejects our offer?” Artum wondered.
“Then we let him know we’ll be offering our services to one of his rivals. Right now the Pirate Lords hold each other in check. They can’t afford to attack one another as it would leave them open to assault while their fleets are distracted. Our crew has the potential to tip the balance of power in favour of whoever we side with. There’s no way they’d turn us away if it means one of his bolstering his rivals forces. If nothing else our added might would make them unassailable.”
“You’re assuming their mystery backer can’t keep the peace.” Artum pointed out “So far he’s kept them from tearing at each others throats. If they believe him capable of restraining the other gangs they may not see the need for our crew.”
Giving him a smirk Thatcher leaned forward and said “If I was a pirate who somehow lucked into owning an entire planet I’d do everything in my power to keep it. And I certainly wouldn’t rely on the benevolence of this man behind the curtain without making a contingency plan.”
Conceding the point with a nod Artum said “So now you’ve indentured me and my men to one of the Pirate Lords how do we take the planet from him.”
“Mining colonies are far from the safest places in the universe.” Tucker grinned “Lots of machinery and explosives; accidents happen all the time.”
“And, god forbid something happens to our new boss, someone high up in the organisation will have to take his place.” Asami purred as she rubbed his thigh “Someone who has experience running such a large organisation.”
With a grin spreading across his face Artum chuckled and said “I don’t know who is more insane; the three of you for proposing such an outlandish strategy or me for believing that you could pull it off!”
“Have we given you cause to doubt our abilities?” Thatcher asked.
“Not at all.” Artum shook his head “But even you must admit it’s an ambitious plan.”
“And you’re an ambitious man.” Asami grinned up at him. “Seems like a match made in heaven.”
Grinning down at her as he caressed her hip Artum said “Very well then. What’s the next step?”
“First you choose who you want running Kranii’s gang so we can free up Vic. Then we go on the offensive; we need the latest intel you have on the rest of the gangs specifically where to find them. With any luck our reputation will precede us and they’ll fall into line easily enough.”
“I’ll see that you get what you need.” he said as he stood up only for Asami to grab him by the wrist.
“There’s no rush is there? We can sort all that stuff out tomorrow.” she proposed with a suggestive smile.
Staring down at her with a hungry look in his eyes Artum nodded his head and sat back down next to her “I’m sure you could all use a break after working so hard. We’ll go over the details in the morning.”
“Great.” Tucker grinned “I’m gonna go see if those girls Asami chased off are still around.” he said eagerly as he made his way to the door.
“And I’ll go make sure he doesn’t do something stupid.” Thatcher sighed.
“Have fun with that.” Asami replied absently all the while staring deeply into Artum’s eyes. Once her two companions had left Asami pounced on top of Artum; straddling his lap she grabbed hold of his head and forced her lips against his. Feeling his hands slide over her hips to squeeze her shapely ass Asami moaned into his mouth and breathily murmured “mmm, that feels so good, Pirate Lord Artum.” seeing his eyes widen and feeling him pull her harder against his body Asami grinned and said “You like that baby? You like me calling you Pirate Lord Artum?” Getting a throaty growl in response Asami grinned and pulled off her shirt to expose her breasts to him. “Good, because I’m going to be screaming it later.” she promised as she pulled his head against her chest, giggling as his fur tickled her before gasping as his lips found her nipple. Seeing him start to pull off his coat Asami grasped his wrists and pushed him back against the chair. “Don’t even think about removing that coat.” she growled lustfully.
Seeing the intensity in her eyes Artum removed his hands from the leather duster and returned them to Asami’s body. Picking her up Artum carried her towards the bed intending to throw her down on top of it only for her to swing them around at the last minute so that she lay on top of him. Running her fingers through the fur on his chest Asami grinned down lewdly at him and said “I hope you don’t have any early morning appointments tomorrow. Because you’re not going to be in any condition to make them.”

Who are the secret puppet-masters behind Trump’s war on Iran?

By: Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies - May 30, 2020
Read the article here: https://www.nationofchange.org/2020/05/30/who-are-the-secret-puppet-masters-behind-trumps-war-on-iran/
On May 6th, President Trump vetoed a war powers bill specifying that he must ask Congress for authorization to use military force against Iran. Trump’s “maximum pressure” campaign of deadly sanctions and threats of war against Iran has seen no let-up, even as the U.S., Iran and the whole world desperately need to set aside our conflicts to face down the common danger of the Covid-19 pandemic.
So what is it about Iran that makes it such a target of hostility for Trump and the neocons? There are many repressive regimes in the world, and many of them are close U.S. allies, so this policy is clearly not based on an objective assessment that Iran is more repressive than Egypt, Saudi Arabia or other monarchies in the Persian Gulf.
The Trump administration claims that its “maximum pressure” sanctions and threats of war against Iran are based on the danger that Iran will develop nuclear weapons. But after decades of inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and despite the U.S.’s politicization of the IAEA, the Agency has repeatedly confirmed that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program.
If Iran ever did any preliminary research on nuclear weapons, it was probably during the Iran-Iraq War in the 1980s, when the U.S. and its allies helped Iraq to make and use chemical weapons that killed up to 100,000 Iranians. A 2007 U.S. National Intelligence Estimate, the IAEA’s 2015 “Final Assessment on Past and Present Outstanding Issues” and decades of IAEA inspections have examined and resolved every scrap of false evidence of a nuclear weapons program presented or fabricated by the CIA and its allies.
If, despite all the evidence, U.S. policymakers still fear that Iran could develop nuclear weapons, then adhering to the Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA), keeping Iran inside the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and ensuring ongoing access by IAEA inspectors would provide greater security than abandoning the deal.
As with Bush’s false WMD claims about Iraq in 2003, Trump’s real goal is not nuclear non-proliferation but regime change. After 40 years of failed sanctions and hostility, Trump and a cabal of U.S. warhawks still cling to the vain hope that a tanking economy and widespread suffering in Iran will lead to a popular uprising or make it vulnerable to another U.S.-backed coup or invasion.

United against a Nuclear Iran and the Counter Extremism Project

One of the key organizations promoting and pushing hostility towards Iran is a shadowy group called United Against a Nuclear Iran (UANI). Founded in 2008, it was expanded and reorganized in 2014 under the umbrella of the Counter Extremism Project United (CEPU) to broaden its attacks on Iran and divert U.S. policymakers’ attention away from the role of Israel, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other U.S. allies in spreading violence, extremism and chaos in the greater Middle East.
UANI acts as a private enforcer of U.S. sanctions by keeping a “business registry” of hundreds of companies all over the world—from Adidas to Zurich Financial Services—that trade with or are considering trading with Iran. UANI hounds these companies by naming and shaming them, issuing reports for the media, and urging the Office of Foreign Assets Control to impose fines and sanctions. It also keeps a checklist of companies that have signed a declaration certifying they do not conduct business in or with Iran. Proving how little they care about the Iranian people, UANI even targets pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical-device corporations—includingBayer, Merck, Pfizer, Eli Lilly, and Abbott Laboratories—that have been granted special U.S. humanitarian aid licenses.

Where does UANI get its funds?

UANI was founded by three former U.S. officials, Dennis Ross, Richard Holbrooke and Mark Wallace. In 2013, it still had a modest budget of $1.7 million, nearly 80% coming from two Jewish-American billionaires with strong ties to Israel and the Republican Party: $843,000 from precious metals investor Thomas Kaplan and $500,000 from casino owner Sheldon Adelson. Wallace and other UANI staff have also worked for Kaplan’s investment firms, and he remains a key funder and advocate for UANI and its affiliated groups.
In 2014, UANI split into two entities: the original UANI and the Green Light Project, which does business as the Counter Extremism Project. Both entities are under the umbrella of and funded by a third, Counter Extremism Project United (CEPU). This permits the organization to brand its fundraising as being for the Counter Extremism Project, even though it still regrants a third of its funds to UANI.
CEO Mark Wallace, Executive Director David Ibsen and other staff work for all three groups in their shared offices in Grand Central Tower in New York. In 2018, Wallace drew a combined salary of $750,000 from all three entities, while Ibsen’s combined salary was $512,126.
In recent years, the revenues for the umbrella group, CEPU, have mushroomed, reaching $22 million in 2017. CEPU is secretive about the sources of this money. But investigative journalist Eli Clifton, who starting looking into UANI in 2014 when it was sued for defamation by a Greek ship owner it accused of violating sanctions on Iran, has found evidence suggesting financial ties with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
That is certainly what hacked emails between CEPU staff, an Emirati official and a Saudi lobbyist imply. In September 2014, CEPU’s president Frances Townsend emailed the UAE Ambassador to the U.S. to solicit the UAE’s support and propose that it host and fund a CEPU forum in Abu Dhabi. Four months later, Townsend emailed again to thank him, writing, “And many thanks for your and Richard Mintz’ (UAE lobbyist) ongoing support of the CEP effort!” UANI fundraiser Thomas Kaplan has formed a close relationship with Emirati ruler Bin Zayed, and visited the UAE at least 24 times. In 2019, he gushed to an interviewer that the UAE and its despotic rulers “are my closest partners in more parts of my life than anyone else other than my wife.”
Another email from Saudi lobbyist and former Senator Norm Coleman to the Emirati Ambassador about CEPU’s tax status implied that the Saudis and Emiratis were both involved in its funding, which would mean that CEPU may be violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act by failing to register as a Saudi or Emirati agent in the U.S.
Ben Freeman of the Center for International Policy has documented the dangerously unaccountable and covert expansion of the influence of foreign governments and military-industrial interests over U.S. foreign policy in recent years, in which registered lobbyists are only the “tip of the iceberg” when it comes to foreign influence. Eli Clifton calls UANI, “a fantastic case study and maybe a microcosm of the ways in which American foreign policy is actually influenced and implemented.”
CEPU and UANI’s staff and advisory boards are stocked with Republicans, neoconservatives and warhawks, many of whom earn lavish salaries and consulting fees. In the two years before President Trump appointed John Bolton as his National Security Advisor, CEPU paid Bolton $240,000 in consulting fees. Bolton, who openly advocates war with Iran, was instrumental in getting the Trump administration to withdraw from the nuclear deal.
UANI also enlists Democrats to try to give the group broader, bipartisan credibility. The chair of UANI’s board is former Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman, who was known as the most pro-Zionist member of the Senate. A more moderate Democrat on UANI’s board is former New Mexico governor and UN ambassador Bill Richardson.
Norman Roule, a CIA veteran who was the National Intelligence Manager for Iran throughout the Obama administration was paid $366,000 in consulting fees by CEPU in 2018. Soon after the brutal Saudi assassination of journalist Jamal Khassoghi, Roule and UANI fundraiser Thomas Kaplan met with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman in Saudi Arabia, and Roule then played a leading role in articles and on the talk-show circuit whitewashing Bin Salman’s repression and talking up his superficial “reforms” of Saudi society.
More recently, amid a growing outcry from Congress, the UN and the European Union to ease U.S. sanctions on Iran during the pandemic, UANI chairman Joe Lieberman, CEPU president Frances Townsend and CEO Mark Wallace signed a letter to Trump that falsely claimed, “U.S. sanctions neither prevent nor target the supply of food, medicine or medical devices to Iran,” and begged him not to relax his murderous sanctions because of COVID-19.
This was too much for Norman Roule, who tossed out his UANI script and told the Nation, “the international community should do everything it can to enable the Iranian people to obtain access to medical supplies and equipment.”
Two Israeli shell companies to whom CEPU and UANI have paid millions of dollars in “consulting fees” raise even more troubling questions. CEPU has paid over $500,000 to Darlink, located near Tel Aviv, while UANI paid at least $1.5 million to Grove Business Consulting in Hod Hasharon, about 10% of its revenues from 2016 to 2018. Neither firm seems to really exist, but Grove’s address on UANI’s IRS filings appears in the Panama Papers as that of Dr. Gideon Ginossar, an officer of an offshore company registered in the British Virgin Islands that defaulted on its creditors in 2010.

Selling a corrupted picture to U.S. policymakers

UANI’s parent group, Counter Extremism Project United, presents itself as dedicated to countering all forms of extremism. But in practice, it is predictably selective in its targets, demonizing Iran and its allies while turning a blind eye to other countries with more credible links to extremism and terrorism.
UANI supports accusations by Trump and U.S. warhawks that Iran is “the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism,” based mainly on its support for the Lebanese Shiite political party Hezbollah, whose militia defends southern Lebanon against Israel and fights in Syria as an ally of the government.
But Iran placed UANI on its own list of terrorist groups in 2019 after Mark Wallace and UANI hosted a meeting at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York that was mainly attended by supporters of the Mujahedin-e-Kalqh (MEK). The MEK is a group that the U.S. government itself listed as a terrorist organization until 2012 and which is still committed to the violent overthrow of the government in Iran – preferably by persuading the U.S. and its allies to do it for them. UANI tried to distance itself from the meeting after the fact, but the published program listed UANI as the event organizer.
On the other hand, there are two countries where CEPU and UANI seem strangely unable to find any links to extremism or terrorism at all, and they are the very countries that appear to be funding their operations, lavish salaries and shadowy “consulting fees”: Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Many Americans are still demanding a public investigation into Saudi Arabia’s role in the crimes of September 11th. In a court case against Saudi Arabia brought by 9/11 victims’ families, the FBI recently revealed that a Saudi Embassy official, Mussaed Ahmed al-Jarrah, provided crucial support to two of the hijackers. Brett Eagleson, a spokesman for the families whose father was killed on September 11th, told Yahoo News, “(This) demonstrates there was a hierarchy of command that’s coming from the Saudi Embassy to the Ministry of Islamic Affairs [in Los Angeles] to the hijackers.”
The global spread of the Wahhabi version of Islam that unleashed and fueled Al Qaeda, ISIS and other violent Muslim extremist groups has been driven primarily by Saudi Arabia, which has built and funded Wahhabi schools and mosques all over the world. That includes the King Fahd Mosque in Los Angeles that the two 9/11 hijackers attended.
It is also well documented that Saudi Arabia has been the largest funder and arms supplier for the Al Qaeda-led forces that have destroyed Syria since 2011, including CIA-brokered shipments of thousands of tons of weapons from Benghazi in Libya and at least eight countries in Eastern Europe. The UAE also supplied arms funding to Al Qaeda-allied rebels in Syria between 2012 and 2016, and the Saudi and UAE roles have now been reversed in Libya, where the UAE is the main supplier) of thousands of tons of weapons to General Haftar’s rebel forces. In Yemen, both the Saudis and Emiratis have committed war crimes. The Saudi and Emirati air forces have bombed schools, clinics, weddings and school buses, while the Emiratis tortured detainees in 18 secret prisons in Yemen.
But United Against a Nuclear Iran and Counter Extremism Project have redacted all of this from the one-sided worldview they offer to U.S. policymakers and the American corporate media. While they demonize Iran, Qatar, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood as extremists and terrorists, they depict Saudi Arabia and the UAE exclusively as victims of terrorism and allies in U.S.-led “counterterrorism” campaigns, never as sponsors of extremism and terrorism or perpetrators of war crimes.
The message of these groups dedicated to “countering extremism” is clear and none too subtle: Saudi Arabia and the UAE are always U.S. allies and victims of extremism, never a problem or a source of danger, violence or chaos. The country we should all be worrying about is – you guessed it – Iran. You couldn’t pay for propaganda like this! But on the other hand, if you’re Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates and you have greedy, corrupt Americans knocking on your door eager to sell their loyalty, maybe you can.

Satta king game is a very hard and interesting game. It is a type of lottery which at first included betting and paces of cotton transmitted from the New York Cotton Exchange. It begins from before the time of Indian freedom when it was known as Ankada Jugar ("figures betting"). In the 1960s, the framework was supplanted with different methods for producing the arbitrary numbers, including slips from a huge pottery pot known as a matka, or managing playing a card game. Matka betting is unlawful in India.
In the first type of the game, betting would occur on the opening and shutting paces of cotton as transmitted to the Bombay Cotton Exchange from the New York Cotton Exchange, through teleprinters. In 1961, the New York Cotton Exchange halted the training, which made the punters search for elective approaches to keep the matka business alive.
Rattan Khatri presented proclaiming opening and shutting paces of fanciful items. Numbers would be composed on bits of paper and put into a matka, a huge earthen pitcher. One individual would then draw a chit and pronounce the triumphant numbers. Throughout the years, the training changed, with the goal that three numbers were drawn from a pack of playing a game of cards, however, the name "matka" was kept.
In 1962, Kalyanji Bhagat began the Worli Matka. Rattan Khatri presented the New Worli matka in 1964, with slight adjustments to the guidelines of the game. Kalyanji Bhagat's Matka ran for all days of the week, while Rattan Khatri's matka ran just five days every week, from Monday to Friday.
The times of the 1980s and 1990s saw the matka business arrive at its pinnacle. Betting volumes in an overabundance of Rs. 500 crore would be laid each month. The Mumbai police's monstrous crackdown on the matka nooks constrained vendors to move their base to the city's edges. A large number of them moved to Gujarat, Rajasthan and different states. With no significant wellspring of betting in the city, the punters got pulled in to different wellsprings of betting, for example, on the web and that at lotteries. In the interim, the rich punters started to investigate betting on cricket matches.
In 1995 there were in excess of 2,000 major and medium-time bookies in the city and neighboring towns, yet from that point forward the numbers have declined generously to under 300. The turnover has stayed around Rs. 100 crore, this is month to month. The current market business is revolved around Maharashtra.
An individual who has won a lot of cash from Matka betting is known as a "Matka King".

The 2nd greatest names in the gambling are rattan, Khatri. Rattan Khatri passed very hard challenges in the gambling industry and made many records which are unbreakable till now. He is known as a Matka king from the 90s. He won a crore of rupees from gambling.
Ratan Khatri is considered by numerous individuals to be the pioneer of the betting/wagering development in India. Rattan belongs from a Sindhi family, began from humble beginnings and like most Hindu Sindhis living in India, he came to Mumbai from Karachi, Pakistan when he was a young person during the 1947 segment.
He is credited as the individual who changed Matka (a type of betting in India that began in Mumbai in 1962) into India's greatest wagering racket and set up an across the nation betting system that went on for a considerable length of time under his influence until he resigned and chose to give up his position.
The Matka furor cleared Bombay during the 1970s and 1980s and furthermore proceeded into the 90s until the police got serious about it. Khatri is known as the boss of the Matka racket - and general society and media alluded to him as the Matka King.
Although Khatri has since quite a while ago resigned and doesn't work the Matka business any progressively, various bookies keep on dishonestly work under his name of Ratan Matka. In a period of political confusion during the crisis declared by Indira Gandhi, Ratan Khatri was captured for 19 months. Following his capture, and because of extraordinary open disdain towards Indira Gandhi, there were drones by the baffled Indian masses that Ratan Khatri should become head administrator rather than Indira Gandhi - the slogan(a reference to Gandhi's Garibi Hatao crusade) went "Indira Gandhi ko hatao, Ratan Khatri ko leader banao". Ratan Khatri has consistently been known to lead a basic and stark life and was constantly found in his trademark kurta pajama and a suppressor tied around his head even while directing his business. He has now surrendered Matka for over 10 years yet keeps on living in Mumbai, India.
