#Bruxelles : un monde de #lobbying

lobbyistes : combien sont ils ?


Officiellement, à Bruxelles, on compte quasiment 25.000 lobbyistes dont
. +/- 12.000 organisations
. 6.000 syndicats et groupements professionnels
. 3.000 ONG
. 1.000 cabinets de consultants

lobbyistes : leur puissance


le nerf de la guerre du lobbying est l’argent

On connaît cependant les sommes investies dans le lobbying pour les quelques #multinationales emblématiques
* #Google : 6 millions €
#Amazon : 1,7 millions €
#Facebook : 3.5 millions €
#Apple : 1 millions €
#Microsoft : 5 millions €Ainsi, des sommes colossales sont dépensées par les lobbyistes pour influencer les décisions, les lois, …

lobbyistes : leurs actions


Personne ne connaît exactement leur travail …
Cependant, on peut se rendre compte de leur influence à travers quelques exemples de décisions prises récemment

la taxe européenne sur les #GAFAM non adoptée
l’UE suspens le projet de taxe européenne sur les GAFA

l’utilisation du #glyphosate prolongée
* L’Europe a récemment prolongé l'utilisation du #glyphosate de 5 ans

FBI and IRS agents raid Baltimore mayor's home and city hall


Alternative title: "Eeeh, what's new in Baltimore? - Mayor's crooked as can bee and was fooling her people"
The multiple early-morning searches pushed the latest political scandal for Maryland’s largest city to a crescendo after weeks of uncertainty and mounting pressure for Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh to step down. The politically isolated first-term mayor, who has long been an avid runner, slipped out of sight April 1, citing deteriorating health, just as the governor called on the state prosecutor to investigate allegations of “self-dealing” by the embattled Democrat.

For years, Pugh, 69, had somehow negotiated lucrative deals to sell her “Healthy Holly” books to customers. She sold $500,000 worth of the illustrated paperbacks to the University of Maryland Medical System, on whose board she sat for nearly 20 years. She also made $300,000 in bulk sales to other customers including two major health carriers that did business with the city.

On Thursday, City Solicitor Andre Davis said he’s received documentation showing all of the items seized by FBI and IRS agents at City Hall but he’s made the determination not to release details publicly so as not to impede an ongoing investigation. He said the searches at City Hall were “limited to the mayor’s suite on the second floor.”

IRS to release new deadline for Trump's tax returns next month

Neal, who had set a 5 p.m. Tuesday deadline for the IRS to turn over the documents, said in a statement that he plans to "consult with counsel about my next steps.” He is likely to subpoena the documents at some point and, given the administration’s resistance to subpoenas issued or threatened by other committees, the dispute is expected to wind up in court.

"It's already been litigated in the court of public opinion and in the election. The president won it fairly and squarely," he said. "He's the president, and no one cares about ridiculous charges about tax returns and all types of other things Democrats are doubling down on today."

Drumpf is suing House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to block a subpoena of Drumpf’s financial records from an accounting firm, Mazars USA. Cummings wants the bank records to investigate allegations that Drumpf falsely inflated and deflated asset values to benefit himself, but the president’s lawyers have said House Democrats are abusing their power to try to embarrass Drumpf.

Trump sues House Oversight chairman Elijah Cummings over subpoena of financial records

The complaint, filed in federal court in Washington, says the subpoena from Rep. Elijah Cummings “has no legitimate legislative purpose” and accuses Democrats of harassing Drumpf and wielding their new majority in Congress to try to stain the president’s standing.
According to him, the subpoena had no legitimate legislative purpose and served to harass him amid the regained political power in Congress. At least to me, there is a purpose, namely to investigate probable tax evasion cases. There was no real need to hide the tax returns from the public, especially since every sitting president did so in terms of transparency and honesty before the American people.
Interesting, isn't it? The failed businessman trying to hide his tax returns. This screams criminality so loud it's almost ripping my eardrums.
The lawsuit accuses Cummings of failing to consult with Republicans on the panel before issuing the subpoena and says he relied on the testimony of Drumpf’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who told lawmakers in February that some of Drumpf’s financial statements contained inaccuracies. Cohen pleaded guilty last year to lying to Congress in 2017 about a real estate deal involving Drumpf in Moscow.
Guess what? Executive orders don't rely on bipartisan agreements too. Still, he tries to reap money from different funds as well, via his acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney. Don't speak about bipartisanship when you can't stand her either. Your ferosity is indescribable.

Again? Establishment Democrats Are Plotting To Sabotage Bernie Sanders Because They Are Scared Trump Would Beat Him

Bernie Sanders is on a roll, and this is absolutely terrifying many establishment Democrats. He has raised far more money that any of the other Democratic candidates, he just took the lead in a major national poll, and a Fox News town hall featuring Sanders was just watched by nearly 2.6 million viewers. You would think that the Democratic establishment would be thrilled to see such enthusiasm for one of their presidential candidates, but instead they are totally freaking out because they don’t want him to be the nominee.

WH adviser Stephen Miller to be told to testify before Senate Democrats

Miller was reportedly the author of the idea of sending foreign detainees to so-called "sanctuary cities" to needle Democratic-governed jurisdictions which have declared they will limit their cooperation with federal authorities seeking to round up and deport immigrants in the country illegally. According to a report in The New York Times, Miller became audibly agitated and frustrated in a conference call with administration officials, angry that so many people seeking refuge in the United States were passing the first legal hurdle of having a "credible fear" of persecution if they were sent back to their home countries. Miller, the Times said, citing others on the call, seemed to want immigration authorities to find a way around the law Congress wrote.

"Steve Miller, who seems to be the boss of everybody on immigration, ought to come before Congress and explain some of these policies," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.
