On December 21, 2017, President Donald J. Trump enacted an executive order titled, “Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption.” In this order, a detailed layout regarding the governmental opposition to human rights abuses expressed the immediate urgency to “impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.” The perpetrators in question include foreigners, politicians, American citizens, or “any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General.”
The code goes on to explain that the perpetrators in question may be any individual who has,:
“materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of… any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or… any entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described.”
Interestingly, Google’s former CEO Eric Schmidt resigned from his leading position shortly after the publication of this executive order. According to FOX News, “Schmidt, who has close ties with Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration, became Google’s ‘adult supervisor’ when he took the company’s reins in 2001.” Schmidt has not been subtle about his political opinions, and during his made it abundantly clear that he intends to implement more progressive legislation into Google’s terms and services.
A barely-known but defining characteristic of Schmidt’s, however, is his profound, $15 million sex penthouse in Manhattan, NY, and a small army of young blonde girls whom he follows on Instagram.
Although nothing significant has come into the public eye regarding the guiltiness or innocence of the corporate fat-cat, his resignation has certainly occurred at a very peculiar time.
Synergy CEO Gary Jacob, Giga-tronics co-CEO Suresh Nair, and Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter have all resigned since President Trump’s executive order on Thursday. Could these corporate overlords be connected to human rights abuses, and have they quit because federal authorities have captured the wind of such atrocities? We have yet to find out.
