TRUMP’S HONDURAN ALLY LIKELY IMPRISONED FOR LIFEIn 2021, then President Donald Trump praised Juan Orlando Hernández, the President of Honduras, for "working with the United States very closely" and for his help "stopping drugs at a level that has never happened." Nothing could have been further from the truth.Contrary to what Trump told the world about the Honduran President, agents of the DEA, prosecutors with the Department of Justice, and anyone that listened to the truth, knew Juan Orlando Hernandez was actually an enemy of the American people. Imagine how those whose rights were oppressed by Hernandez in Honduras felt when Trump claimed their tyrannical leader was an honorable warrior in the "War on Drugs". At the link below you can access my article published by the Tampa Bay Times detailing the alleged horrific crimes committed by former President Trump's dictator friend in Honduras, including that dictator's participation in a massive drug trafficking conspiracy and conspiracies to commit murder:www.tampabay.com/opinion/2024/02/09/trumps-honduran-ally-could-face-life-prison/ ...

WHY SOME U.S. POLITICIANS WANT TO IGNORE DIRTY BANKSIt is no secret that heavy weight Republicans like House Speaker Mike Johnson and Majority Leader Steve Scalise want to vilify some of the most talented anti-money laundering public servants in the world, IRS Special Agents. While Johnson and others wrongfully claim middle America is the primary target of the IRS, the Republican majority insists on tying the hands of these highly skilled forensic investigators behind their backs. Days ago, the Tampa Bay Times published my latest article that offers a plausible explanation for why Johnson and other Republicans are clamoring to keep the IRS in check. My theory sheds light on who benefits most from a defunded IRS. It also explains why Johnson and others have not cheered on the IRS for making cases like the one announced this month against Banque Pictet, an institution that confessed to conspiring with hundreds of U.S. tax cheats to hide more than $5 billion in wealth. My apologies to my UK and other friends that might not be familiar with U.S. sports great Yogi Berra, a man known as much for his wit as for his Hall of Fame baseball talents. Yogi was a simple man whose humorous quotes came to be referred to in the U.S. as "Yogi-isms". One of his best, “You can observe a lot by just watching” fits this puzzle perfectly. The link below will take you to my latest article about Banque Pictet, and the value Pictet's crimes are to megadonors that fill the coffers of the Republican majority in the U.S. Congress:www.robertmazur.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/12/Tampa-Bay-Times-12.24.23.pdf ...

BBC PROBES THE INFILTRATOR’S MIND (EPISODE 2)Episode 2 of this two-part interview takes you deeper into what you can expect if you chose to become a long-term undercover agent within the underworld. BBC host NICKY CAMPBELL probes what it was like to be asked by my cartel “friends” to kill for them, and how they shared secrets with me about corrupting country leaders that facilitated their massive drug trafficking empires. During this episode, I explain how my journey within the “underground empire” of crime opened my eyes to the reality that laundering billions is not a challenge for powerful cartels, even today. The truth is that governments around the world fail to identify and seize more than 1% of the $400 billion in illicit funds generated from the sale of illegal drugs each year. There's a reason for this horrible reality.NICKY also got me to confront my view about the value of what I did as an undercover agent. He asked, “If the clock were turned back to the day you decided to become a long-term undercover agent, would you do it again?” Click on the image below to hear my response, and the rest of Episode 2. I think you will be surprised. ... See MoreSee Less

HUMBLED BY THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF TRUE WARRIORS FOR DEMOCRACYIt was an honor today to deliver the Keynote address at the INTERNATIONAL ANTICORRUPTION CHAMPIONS AWARD CONFERENCE sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and World Partnerships. The award winners included anti-corruption leaders from Belarus, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, India, Kyrgyz Republic, Liberia, Montenegro, Panama, and Timor-Leste. I have not recognized them by name because they have repeatedly been the targets of attack by those that oppose democracy and anti-corruption in their countries.In the face of great personal risk, these U.S. Department of State award winners that include journalists, members of non-government organizations, and public servants, have shown a relentless commitment to fighting corruption and countering propaganda used by malicious actors to advance false narratives. They have worked in anti-corruption, exposing corrupt politicians and crooked public officials. They have created and developed social movements aimed at transparency and accountability, public audits, and participatory democracy to counter corruption in government welfare programs. They and their teams have been the victims of endless threats, lawsuits, harassment, cyber-attacks, and much more.It was an honor to meet and share ideas with these amazing award winners from around the world that have chosen a road less traveled to improve the lives of millions of oppressed people. These warriors of democracy are the gatekeepers of a better world, willing to endure tremendous personal sacrifice for the good of others. I am immensely humbled to have met them and learned about their devotion to freedom. The world is a better place because of them and their burning desire to serve justice. ... See MoreSee Less

BBC 5 INTERVIEWS THE INFILTRATORNICKY CAMPBELL interviews Robert Mazur about the trauma of working deep cover. Listen to Episode 1 of this interview and put yourself in Mazur's shoes. Imagine how your life would have changed if you chose to operate within the underworld as the eyes and ears of the "good guys".Let go of the “Oh, I would never do that”, because there are times when good people like you will sense a calling to choose a road less traveled to support a greater good. Thanks to questions posed by BBC radio host NICKY CAMPBELL, this interview opens your eyes to what your life as "007" may have been, or still could be.During the first of this 2 Episode interview, Mazur reveals how he was selected to work undercover, how he was trained, and how he put those skills to use establishing rapport with some of the deadliest organized crime figures in the world.It may seem strange, but your undercover journey will drag you through unexpected emotional tolls as you live with killers, and afterward when you face them and their families in courtrooms around the world. You will need to be prepared to be a key witness in half a dozen trials, and testifying in one trial alone for every consecutive court day for 3 solid months. Taking incoming slings and arrows from slippery defense attorneys for months will require your endless preparation and focus. At the same time, you'll have distractions, like the heavily armed 10-man anti-terrorism bodyguard detail that will shadow you 24/7 while you visit foreign countries to testify against your "old friends". You also need to anticipate what to do on that fateful day when you are told that the most powerful drug cartel in the world has issued a contact on your life, especially since you have witnessed how horrifically they torture and kill their enemies.Next week, Episode 2 of this interview will be posted. It will include a discussion about how cartels routinely compromise leaders of countries, and why it is so easy for the underworld to launder $2 trillion a year.For now, sit back, click on the link to this BBC interview, and hear Episode 1 to learn how much your life changes when you chose the road less traveled and become a government mole inside the deadliest drug cartels in the world. ...
