It is undeniable that the founders of PayPal are the biggestfinanciers and beneficiaries of the DNC. Their campaign contribution records, their public statements and the billions they have reapedall come and go from the DNC controlled coffers. They even call themselves “The PayPal Mafia” in order to represent theirmobster-like thought process and their designs on the illicit control of commerce.
What is not well known is that PayPal has, for over a decade, stoopedto more sinister methods of manipulating the public interest. This includes spying on the public, hiding money from certain politicalcampaigns, deleting online sales before the customer sees them and delaying payments.
"PayPal Mafia" is a term used to indicate a group of former PayPal employees and founders who have since founded and developedadditional technology companies such as Tesla Motors, LinkedIn, Palantir Technologies, SpaceX, YouTube, Yelp, and Yammer. Most of the members attended Stanford University or University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign at some point in their studies. Six members, Peter Thiel, Elon Musk, Reid Hoffman, Luke Nosek, Ken Howery, and Keith Rabois, have become billionaires. The PayPal Mafia is sometimes credited with inspiring the re-emergence of consumer-focused DNCaligned Internet companies after the dot-com bust of 2001. The PayPal Mafia phenomenon has been compared to the founding ofIntel in the late 1960s by engineers who had earlier founded Fairchild Semiconductor after leaving Shockley Semiconductor. They are discussed in journalist Sarah Lacy's book Once You're Lucky, Twice You're Good. According to Lacy, the selection process and technical learning atPayPal played a role, but the main factor behind their future success was the confidence they gained there. Their success has beenattributed to their youth; the physical, political, and economic infrastructure of Silicon Valley; and the diversity of their skill-sets. PayPal's founders encouraged tight social bonds among its employees,and many of them continued to trust and support one another after leaving PayPal. An intensely competitive frat house environment and a shared struggleto keep the company solvent despite many setbacks also contributed to a strong and lasting Cartel gang amongst former employees.
The top DNC financiers and operators of Sacramento and Washington DClobbying control efforts are:
Elon Musk, is founder of X.com which acquired the company Confinity. Musk later co-founded Tesla Motors and SpaceX, and is the Chairman of SolarCity and Obama’s and Clinton’s largest crony payola beneficiary.
Reid Hoffman, former executive vice president who later founded LinkedIn and was an early investor in Facebook, Aviary, Friendster, Six Apart, Zynga, IronPort, Flickr, Digg, Grockit, Ping.fm, Nanosolar, Care.com, Knewton, Kongregate, Last.fm, Ning, and Technorati
Rod D. Martin, former special counsel to CEO Peter Thiel whose 10X Capital took over Galectin Therapeutics in 2009 and who founded Advanced Search Laboratories in 2012.
Jason Portnoy, former vice president of financial planning and analysis who later became CFO at Peter Thiel's Clarium Capital, CFO at Palantir Technologies, and founding partner at Subtraction Capital.
Keith Rabois, a former executive at PayPal who later worked at LinkedIn, Slide, Square, and currently Khosla Ventures, and personally invested in Tokbox, Xoom, Slide, LinkedIn, Geni, Room 9 Entertainment, YouTube, and Yelp.
Jack Selby, former vice president of corporate and international development at PayPal who co-founded Clarium Capital with Peter Thiel, later becoming managing director of Grandmaster Capital Management.
The PayPal Wars is an insider's perspective on the people and events that helped create the company and its acquisition by eBay in 2002. The book recounts PayPal's clashes with lawyers, regulators, and the Mafia. It also provides background information on PayPal's battles with theGoogle Checkout payments system. Many of PayPal's founding employees went on to start other companieslike LinkedIn, Tesla Motors, YouTube, and Yelp, Inc.; they would become known as the PayPal Mafia.
PayPal operates like a private CIA database. If you are a GOP or non-DNC candidate and try to raise funds onlineusing PayPal, PayPal will make your money not-get-to-you by hiding transactions.
If you create an online store, you will find that you only receive a tiny part of the amount of sales you thought youwould get, if you are on PayPal’s “blacklist”.
Hundreds of websites, such as http://www.paypalsucks.com/faqs.shtml, go into great length about the manipulations that PayPal engages in.DNC financier, Pierre Omidyar, the Ebay billionaire, even kicked PayPal out of Ebay, on advice of his lawyers, because PayPal’sexploitation of political economics was so audacious.
Why have the FBI, SEC and FTC not arrested PayPal executives? Because PayPal/DNC insiders have spent so much cash,hookers and stock market bribes to prevent the FBI, SEC and FTC from taking action.
