“Bankman-Fried also appeared at the New York Times’ DealBook summit on Wednesday, where he said he “didn’t ever try to commit fraud.”
Speaking at the New York Times’ Dealbook Summit with Andrew Ross Sorkin (a financial columnist for The New York Times ) at what he said was against the advice of his lawyers, Bankman-Fried said that he did not knowingly commingle customer funds on FTX with funds at his proprietary trading firm, Alameda Research.” [NY Post]
What a difference one month makes:
“FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried is set to be released on a $250 million bond and placed under house arrest at his parents’ California home following his first court appearance in Manhattan federal court Thursday.” [NY Post]

Meanwhile, back to the speakers on November 30th [NY TIMES]
Part 1 video (approx 6 min) : Nov. 30, 2022.
In a mostly heavy rain (with an occasional respite) protesting the NY TimesDealBook Summit by demanding transparency and accountability re racketeering and conspiracy. This speaker criticized Ben Affleck as the token representative of the Celebrity Industrial Complex. Artists today are bought, paid and serviced …. by the New World Order. She warned against the Great Reset and the return of the degenerate Weimar Republic and concluded with, ” Art is supposed to be about beauty with a capital “B”; Truth and Beauty. Instead, culturally, artistically, what is happening in our world today is the ugly … nihilistic into extreme levels of ugliness…. When you can break down people and break down families and break down communities they’re so much easier to take down.”
Part 2 video (approx 2 min) Grifter, Sam Bankman-Fried was scheduled as an interviewee/speaker.
This fellow responded outside the NY TimesDealBook Summit, to the question, “Don’t you think it’s worth listening to the guy who tweeted out-Don’t worry we’re solvent. And then the next day everybody’s money is gone. No promise for getting it back. … Yeah…. I think it’s worth listening to Sam Bankman-Fried from PRISON.” (the rest was the female speaker and a strange accusation re Mark Zuckerberg.)
Video 3 (3:31) focused on Ukraine corruption. (Pres. Zelensky was one of the interviewee/speakers promoted at the NY TimesDealBook Summit)
Protestors were demanding transparency and accountability re racketeering and conspiracy. This speaker discussed The Color Revolution (2005)…. funded by G. Soros. Also, topics were China and the ‘rona’.
Video 4 (5:20) Pres. Zelensky was one of the interviewee/speakers promoted at the NY TimesDealBook Summit so corruption and the history between Ukraine and Russia was briefly discussed.
“How many think Ukraine is winning this war. There is no way…Russia going to win this war. Ukraine is going down, so need to launder as much money as they can.“
Video 5 (4:58) continued with Ukraine corruption. (Pres. Zelensky was one of the interviewee/speakers promoted at the NY TimesDealBook Summit)
“Putin is going to win this war. Were going to suffer for it and and Europe is suffering for it. Zelensky is a pawn. a kleptocrat. We’re giving the billions….pilfered… funneled thru FTX to the Democrats. The biggest money heist in the world. SBF is being treated as someone who just made a mistake. He needs to be put behind bars for years and years and never coming out.”

“They still make movies with a lot of equipment, heavy cameras, practically speaking, a massive amount of money is missing,” he said. “I knew I could save 15 percent off the top.”
Affleck’s vision: Hollywood’s most powerful stars and off-camera people — directors, editors, costume designers, cinematographers — will all share in the profit. And they’ll also have a bigger say in the creative process, he promised.
