There’s trouble in Tinseltown. Eco-activist and pseudo climate scientist, Leonardo DiCaprio, is tied to what US Department of Justice calls “the largest single action ever brought under the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative” in a $3.5B embezzlement scandal involving a Malaysian government fund called 1MDB.
The 1Malaysia Development Berhad fund raised $8B to benefit Malaysians, but some of those funds were misappropriated to establish Red Granite Pictures, the production company that bankrolled The Wolf of Wall Street, a movie DiCaprio starred in.
And there’s more. Watch as I fill you in on the sordid details and the ties to DiCaprio’s charitable foundation.
DiCaprio may not have had direct awareness of how his charity was used but this type of behaviour underlines the corrupt nature of eco-activists. DiCaprio even has ties to Tzeporah Berman, the activist Notley hired to chair her Oil Sands Advisory Group.
Berman helped DiCaprio with environmental film, The 11th Hour, and her Stand charity is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation which funds campaigns against the Canadian oil and gas industry.
Stay tuned. It may just be a matter of time before DiCaprio’s true objectives are known.
