Jimmy Savile … Doorman To The Cesspit
Thursday 11 October 2012



The David Icke Newsletter Goes Out On Sunday with 5,500-word background article on the Savile case and its much wider implications

I was first told about the real Jimmy Savile in the late 1990s in conversations with people who had serious insider knowledge about the British royal family and they said that Savile had been a close friend of Prince Philip until they had fallen out after a ‘big row’.
When I questioned why someone like Savile would be so close to the royal family I was told about his paedophilia and necrophilia (sex with dead bodies) and, of course, his famous voluntary work at hospitals would have given him potential access to the mortuaries.
Savile himself would boast about his connections to the royals and it was publicly acknowledged that he was a regular visitor to Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace (where Princess Diana lived after her marriage ended with Prince Charles), and Highgrove (the country estate of Prince Charles).
Savile told  Esquire: ‘The thing about me is I get things done and I work deep cover. I’ve known the Royal Family for a million years.’
According to the UK  Daily Mail at the time of Savile’s death in 2011, he ‘was used as an intermediary in an attempt to resolve the differences between the Prince and Princess of Wales shortly before their split’. Savile said that he was invited to regular meetings with the royal family because ‘I have a natural good fun way of going on and we have a laugh.’
Would one of the world’s most powerful families invite an aging disc jockey into their inner sanctum so often just because he gave them ‘a good laugh’? Or is there likely to be a far more plausible reason for their strange closeness?
I have been writing since the 1990s and a book called  The Biggest Secret about the royal family’s connection to Satanism and paedophilia and about paedophile Satanists like British Prime Minister Edward Heath and President ‘Father’ George Bush – just as I have told those who would listen about Jimmy Savile. But all I have had for my trouble from mainstream society is ridicule and dismissal. Their minds are too closed and programmed to make the leap into the world as it really is.
Now, in the wake of the public confirmation about Savile, it is time that they did. How many more children need to suffer before humanity grows up and faces the reality and sheer undiluted evil of the force that controls them?

After Crying “Conspiracy Theory,” CNN Touts North American Union

January 30, 2015

Just a few years ago, it was all a baseless “conspiracy theory.” Now, promotion of a European Union-style merger between the United States, Mexico, and Canada is being shouted from the rooftops — by U.S. taxpayer-funded globalists writing in the very same media outlet, CNN, that tried to ridicule GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul over the North American Union issue just a few years ago. Indeed, according to the  recent opinion piece by two mid-level operatives for the “New America Foundation,” the future of the United States does not rest with the U.S. Constitution, “We the People,” or even the Supreme Court. Instead, it “lies in North America,” claimed New America’s Andrés Martinez and Daniel Kurtz-Phelan.

“This is not a geographic truism, but a strategic imperative,” the duo argued. “The United States, Canada and Mexico are bound by a shared economic, environmental, demographic and cultural destiny.” In recognition of what they refer to as North America’s “shared destiny,” Martinez and Kurtz-Phelan propose the establishment of what they call a “North American passport.” The radical passport scheme would eventually facilitate the erasing of U.S. borders in exchange for “North American” borders — a plot that has been underway for years with the “Beyond the Border” initiative and other schemes. “Much like the EU passport,” the tax-funded globalists wrote, the new North American passport would ultimately allow citizens to “travel, work, invest, learn and innovate anywhere in North America.”
Apparently, at least in the minds of globalists paid with Americans’ tax dollars, the economies of the United States, Mexico, and Canada are “far more integrated” than recognized by the current immigration system — or lack thereof, in light of Obama’s imperial decrees purporting to nullify U.S. immigration laws. So, phasing out U.S., Mexican, and Canadian passports and replacing them with a single North American one would merely serve to “align our laws with reality.” Of course, it is true that, thanks largely to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), U.S. sovereignty has already suffered a severe blow. Unelected North American “tribunals,” for instance, already purport to overrule state and federal laws enacted by the American people’s elected representatives. North American bureaucracies are proliferating, too.

However, Martinez and Kurtz-Phelan claim to view the subversive attack on the independence of the American Republic as a positive development. NAFTA, they explained, “has created an integrated manufacturing platform and labor market.” But it must go much further, the “New America” duo argued, exploiting any conceivable pretext to eliminate self-government and national sovereignty. “This potential must be leveraged regionally, with cross-border infrastructure investments and environmental planning,” they wrote after discussing oil production in the “North American region.” Apparently, corruption-riddled and Big Government-plagued Mexico is America’s “lynchpin” to “relations with the countries of Central and South America.” So, they argued, give up your sovereignty and merge with Mexico!

“The inception of NAFTA marked an important step toward leveraging these geographic realities for a shared North American success,” continued Martinez, who resigned from the  Los Angeles Times amid a scandal, and Kurtz-Phelan, a former policy adviser on then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s staff. “But the promise of NAFTA has fallen short in a critical respect; while trade and investment have grown, the barriers to movement have remained too high for the people who help drive and stand to benefit from that growth.”      

Of course, both globalists know full well that the people of all three countries would overwhelmingly reject any such scheming — probably laughing them out of the room as kooks, if not seeking prosecutions for trying to surreptitiously subvert the independence of their own nations. So the people must be defied. “As evidenced by the recent political firestorm over President Obama’s executive move to allow more undocumented workers to avoid deportation, it would take farsighted and courageous political leadership in all three countries to press for a North American passport,” they wrote, as if defying the Constitution, the oath of office to uphold it, and the will of the people somehow represented “courage” rather than lawlessness. In fact, they argued that abolishing the borders between the United States and its neighbors would “help alleviate our contentious domestic immigration battles.”
The fact that the radical anti-sovereignty screed promoting deeper North American integration was published by CNN, though, is especially ironic. During the 2007 GOP presidential debates, CNN  selected a question for Ron Paul asking him if he really believed in the “conspiracy theory”about ongoing efforts to build a North American Union. The effort to ridicule Paul backfired, big time, after he offered an excellent answer making the questioner look foolish. But the attempt did not go unnoticed. Some years later, official U.S. government documents from the embassy in Canada leaked by WikiLeaks  revealed that long before that debate, top federal officials were working hard with their counterparts in Canada on plots to create a regional currency, subvert national constitutions, and eventually create a North American regime.   

More recently, after spending years dishonestly dismissing criticism of their machinations as “conspiracy theories,” top globalists have been much more open about the potentially treasonous plot. “After America comes North America,” disgraced former General and CIA boss David Petraeus  said confidently last year in answering a question about what comes “after” the United States. “Are we on the threshold of the North American decade, question mark? I threw that away — threw away the question mark — and boldly proclaimed the coming North American decade, says the title now.” He also boasted about how the three economies have been put “together” over the last 20 years as part of the “implementation” of NAFTA. Globalist mouthpiece Henry Kissinger, meanwhile,  recently outlined his vision of a “New World Order” that would first have to divide the globe up into regional regimes.
While much of the scheming has  come from the global government-promoting Council on Foreign Relations, the taxpayer-funded New America Foundation appears to be playing a growing role in pushing the outlandish plot. Google boss Eric Schmidt, whose search engine stands accused of increasingly working to hide alternative media voices that oppose “North America” scheming, serves as chairman of the foundation’s board of directors. The  outfit’s top funding sources included unwitting American taxpayers, forced to contribute more than $1 million — potentially much more, the foundation does not say — in 2013 alone through the U.S. State Department. Various other federal agencies also contributed taxpayer dollars. Another top source of funding was the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,  infamous for promoting abortion, population reduction, globalized and federalized education standards, and more. Bailed-out megabanks, globalist tax-exempt foundations (Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie, and more), billionaire extremist George Soros,  the World Bank, Big Media, various tax-funded universities, and other sources also finance the outfit.           

And as the name suggests, a “New America” is indeed what they are pushing for — a new America without self-government, individual rights, national sovereignty, or the principles upon which the old America was founded. Just consider the farewell address by America’s first president, George Washington. “It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world,” he told the young nation. Now, globalists are pushing not just for “permanent alliances,” but the outright surrender of U.S. independence to merge with “North America” and eventually, the world. The scheming has been underway for generations, mostly in the shadows. But, as the final phases approach, much of the agenda is now being touted openly in establishment media organs such as CNN and beyond.     
Of course,  The New American has been exposing the plot to surrender American independence to a continental regime for almost a decade. The founding father of the bid to impose a North American regime on the United States, Council on Foreign Relations operative  Robert Pastor, even credited  The John Birch Society, a constitutionalist organization and affiliate of this magazine, with stopping the plot. However, as recent developments show clearly, the extremist movement to subvert self-government and national sovereignty by powerful forces across North America is still alive and well. And unless the people of the United States, Canada, and Mexico get educated and organized to stop it, the threat of an  EU-style continental regime to rule “North America” will continue to grow

Man in court over Thomas Allwood murder

thomas allwood
Thomas Allwood was found lying in the road

A man has appeared in court charged with murder following the death of a 55-year-old man in West Lothian last week.

Thomas Allwood was found by members of the public lying across Pyothall Road in Broxburn at about 04:45 on Thursday.

Kyle Montgomery, 24, of Winchburgh, appeared on petition at Livingston Sheriff Court.

He made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody for further inquiries.

Senior respected Freemason CID Police Officer Paul Day Heads
 in English Police Inquiry into a double murder and fraud
associated with the theft of the title deed and property
 Haywicks Farm, Haywicks Lane, Harwicke, Gloucester, England,

Senior respected Freemason CID Police Officer Paul Day Heads in English Police Inquiry into a double murder and fraud associated with the theft of the title deed and property Haywicks Farm, Haywicks Lane, Harwicke, Gloucester, England, buy well known solicitors, barristers and repsected business people in Gloucester … the person who was defrauded as a result of the double murder and fraud was English born Valerie Butler the only child of the late Herbert henry Butler, who as Senior respected Freemason CID Police Officer Paul Day has discovered from his investigations, had is will forged with the help of now senior solicitor Simon James Fraser and other solicitors and a person called Vivienne Hobbs that never existed as a real name or a real person, who were claim to have witnessed the last will and testament of the Late Herbert Henry Butler, when from the face of such alleged fraudulent will, it was quite obviously a forgery and was even properly and formerly witnessed. It seems that it started off with the murder of the late Herbert Henry Butler in 1990, so the forged will could be activated and used to fraudulently obtain the  title deed and property Haywicks Farm, Haywicks Lane, Harwicke, Gloucester, England, then let the dust settle for 20 year or so, then in 2011/2012 attempting to fraudulently transferring the title deed and property Haywicks Farm, Haywicks Lane, Harwicke, Gloucester, England to a third party and friendly businessman, who was originally the client of one of the solicitors in the 1990’s that were involved in the forged will and having the forged will used to obtain a grant of probate. The plan was then to let a few more years pass, so no suspicions would arise, and then organise one of the friendly local council officers to approve a re-zoning from a single residential farm to a luxury residential development, where all the conspirators will all share in the over £20 million pounds profit and all end up with their own luxury home free of charge as well as a substantial cash profit, after development and building costs are paid.

All was going well for the murderous scheming fraudsters until an honest Freemason CID Officer based at Talbot House, Cheltenham Police Station, Lansdown Road, Cheltenham, Gloustershire, GL51 6QT, decided that enough is enough and without fear or favour is working hard seven days a week to get to the bottom of the most serious fraud that now involves a second person murdered to try and stop the truth coming out. Scottish born Thomas Graham Allwood was getting too close to the truth, when using a de-poll name as a cover issued a High Court of Justice Claim in the High Court of Justice of England against around 20 defendants, which included many the high profile and respected solicitors and legal firms in Gloustershire and Cheltenham, both existing and closed up  such as Mage Lloyd Gibson and others alleging a serious conspiracy to defraud  Valerie Butler of her legal right to own her late father’s 25 acre multi-million pound farm known as Haywicks Farm, Haywicks Lane, Harwicke, Gloucester, England, demanding on behalf of Valerie Butler,  the return of the title deed and for damages. The conspirators were very concerned that he was getting to the truth and also very concerned about that the fact they found out that Thomas Graham Allwood was an undercover investigative journalist for the INL News Group. So they decided that Thomas Graham Allwood had to be first threatened to back off or he would be murdered, and then finally murdered, which would also scare off Valerie Butler to run back to Australia where she has been living since the 1980. Having gone there to live with her late husband and her late father Herbert Henry Butler. Thomas Graham Allwood was murder in the early hours of the morning in Broxburn Scotland on the 21st of June, 2012 and/or late in the evening on the 20th June, 2012. The make sure they were not investigated the conspirators help make sure that a young man Kyle Montgomery was made a scape Goat for the murder of the late Thomas Graham Allwood, and their powerful connections in the Scottish Police made sure that the real facts were not investigated and covered up, and remained covered up. A three hundred page report that was prepared by the INL News Investigation section into the murder of Thomas Graham Allwood was also buried and cover up after being handed to the government of Scotland..

Australian visitor died in the street after being stabbed in chest

Thomas Allwood, found dead in Broxburn, West Lothian, on June 20 2012.
Thomas Allwood: The 55-year-old was found dead in the street.

An Australian visitor to Scotland died in the street of a small town after being stabbed once with a knife.

On Monday, a jury was told Thomas Allwood's body was found in Broxburn, West Lothian, in the early hours of June 21 this year.

At the High Court at Livingston, the prosecution and defence agreed the cause of death was a single stab wound to the 55-year-old investigative journalist's chest.

Kyle Montgomery, 24, is on trial after pleading not guilty to murdering Mr Allwood.

Montgomery, from Winchburgh, West Lothian, denies assaulting the Mr Allwood on various occasions on the night he died, repeatedly punching him on the head and body, pursuing him with a knife and striking him on the body with a knife.

The attacks are alleged to have happened in Galloway Crescent, Clarkson Road and elsewhere in Broxburn.

Mr Allwood was found by members of the public lying in Pyothall Road, near Clarkson Road, at about 4:45am.

June Douglas, 44, who lives next door to Montgomery's father Robert in Galloway Crescent, said she saw the accused in the street at around 1pm on June 20 carrying a bag which she assumed contained alcohol.

A few minutes later she saw him at the door of his father's home trying to get in.

She told the court her neighbour was a known alcoholic and frequently caused a nuisance. In the early hours of the following morning she said she was startled by a loud bang on the wall of her bedroom just after 3am.

She said: "It was as if somebody was going to come through the wall. It gave me a start - I'd never heard anything like the bang. I just took it that they were fighting and banging off the walls. It was something that happened all the time."

Under cross examination by defence advocate Derek Ogg, Ms Douglas agreed Mr Montgomery's house was "used like a drinking den".

She added: "It was like living next door to a pub."

Her friend Christopher McDonald, 31, who was staying with her at the time, said loud music, banging and the sound of raised voices had continued long after Ms Douglas had gone to bed. He was also startled by the loud noise at around 3.15am. He said: "The bang was the one thing that was out of the ordinary. I just assumed they were fighting again. The whole house shook." He said he identified the sound of four voices in Mr Montgomery's one-bedroom maisonette that night. Things went quiet after the bang, then he said he heard someone leave by the back door. He told the jury: "Someone went out quietly. The door was never closed quietly. What drew my attention was that it wasn't slammed. Later - after 5 0'clock - I heard really loud voices from the garden.

"I got really angry at that point. I pulled aside the curtain and I was ready to go mental, but the police were there."

Earlier barmaid Lisa Feenan, 30, said the accused's father Mr Montgomery had left the Badger's Brook pub in Broxburn just after 10pm on June 20 with a man she knew only as "the Australian".

She said Mr Montgomery had been drinking Guinness in the bar for an hour and a half but the Australian visitor, who was with a woman she knew as Margaret, had only taken soft drinks. In a joint minute of agreement read to the jury, the Crown produced technical evidence, including records of mobile phone calls by the accused, his father Robert and Tina Borst. CCTV footage from cameras in Broxburn Main Street and the Badger's Brook pub was lodged as evidence along with a recording of a 999 call made by witness James McMillan on the morning of the incident. A till receipt for cigarettes and a lighter from the Costcutter store at Fairfield Service Station along with CCTV film captured just before 5am have also been lodged.

The trial, before Lord Doherty, continues.


At the High Court in Edinburgh Lord Doherty sentenced Kyle Montgomery to nine years imprisonment after he was found guilty of the culpable homicide of Thomas Graham Allwood in Broxburn on 21 June 2012.

On sentencing Lord Doherty made the following statement in court:

“You have been convicted of culpable homicide. The jury determined that you assaulted Mr Allwood, pursued him whilst in possession of a knife, struck him on the body with a knife, and killed him.

You were involved in an altercation with the deceased on the evening of the killing. The deceased initiated that altercation. I take full account of that fact, the fact that the first person to use physical violence that night was the deceased, and that he had to be ejected twice from your father’s home. I also take account of the fact that the cause of death was a single blow with the knife. These were doubtless factors which weighed with the jury in deciding to return a verdict of culpable homicide rather than murder. I have regard to your previous good record.

I do not regard the fact that you were intoxicated at the time as being a mitigatory factor. I do not attach much weight to the fact that only mild force would have been required to inflict the injury which was inflicted. Sharp weapons of the sort you used are capable of inflicting grievous injury using only mild force. That is part of the reason they are so deadly. The message must go out loud and clear that those who arm themselves with such weapons, and even more so, those who go on to use them, must expect the courts to deal with them severely.

The inescapable facts are that after the deceased was ejected from your father’s home you decided to go out too. You returned a short time later. You armed yourself with a lethal weapon.You resisted your father’s attempts to disarm you. You went back outside. You stabbed the deceased in the left side of his chest with the knife, cutting through his lung and making two slits in the left side of his ascending thoracic aorta. The jury rejected your account of accidental stabbing. The stabbing was deliberate. You were not acting in self defence. The stabbing was not done under provocation. After you had stabbed him you made no attempt to obtain assistance for your victim. He bled to death from his injuries within a very short time.

I would be failing in my duty if I did not treat this as a grave case of culpable homicide. I regard your culpability for the killing as being high. The sentence which I impose is one of 9 years imprisonment. That sentence will run from 25 June 2012.”

Murder trial told DNA of victim and alleged killer found on kitchen knife

Thomas Allwood

THE DNA of a murder victim and his alleged killer were found on a kitchen knife, a court heard yesterday.

The High Court in Livingston was told the odds of the DNA matching anyone other than the deceased, Thomas Allwood, were 28,600,000-1.

Blood samples lifted from the blade were a billion-to-one match for 24-year-old Kyle Montgomery, who denies murdering Thomas in Broxburn on June 21.

The knife was found in Montgomery’s dad’s kitchen.

Forensic scientist Kirsty McTurk told the jury: “The findings are consistent with Kyle Montgomery having assaulted Thomas Allwood.”

The trial was adjourned until Monday.

The Irish Independent reports that a money-laundering racket uncovered by the gardai was used by the Provisional IRA to 'cleanse' at least �5m (�7.2m) in sterling notes from the proceeds of the Northern Bank robbery.

The extent of the racket was revealed last night as gardai worked closely with the PSNI to build up a case against the masterminds of the scam.

The massive investigation, which involves several national garda units, is being carried out alongside inquiries into the Belfast robbery in which the IRA got away with 38m.

Senior garda officers are satisfied that the cash traced and seized in their investigation is directly linked to the robbery last December.

A detailed picture of the money trail emerged last night as inquiries continued here and overseas:

 Gardai seized 2.4m in used £20 notes stashed into holdall bags in the basement of a bungalow owned by Cork financier Ted Cunningham whose firm, Chesterton Finance Company, is alleged to have been used to help launder the cash.

 Another £1.5m in new sterling notes went up in smoke when a man in Passage West burnt the cash in his fireplace after the scam organisers panicked because they feared the new notes could be traceable.

 The remaining �1.1m was identified in the paper trail across a series of financial institutions and has either been seized or spent.

Gardai recovered almost £0.5m of the latter tranche when they were either contacted by businessmen or raided houses or business premises in Cork city, Douglas, Millstreet, Co Cork; Killarney and Rathmore, Co Kerry; Tullamore, Co Offaly; and Dunboyne, Co Meath.

Detectives also seized £93,000 in a Daz washing powder packet after searching a jeep at Heuston rail station in Dublin. Gardai surrounded the jeep on the afternoon of February 16 after an intelligence tip-off resulted in the monitoring of two Derry men who travelled to Dublin in the vehicle to meet a suspected republican, who had travelled from Cork.

Gardai allege that the money had previously been taken south from Derry in sterling to be 'laundered', and was being handed back in 'clean' euro notes when it was seized.

At that stage, the garda investigation had already been under way for about nine weeks and the intelligence about the meeting in Dublin forced officers into moving against a number of suspects at the centre of their inquiries.

Apart from raiding Cunningham's home in the village of Farran, 10 miles outside Cork city, gardai detained two other men and a woman - including a Sinn Fein activist who had been a former councillor and party election agent.

But from a total of seven arrests, only one person has so far been charged and he is now awaiting trial on accusations of being a member of an illegal organisation.

Last month, the PSNI carried out a series of raids in Derry and seized more than �30,000 in 11 searches of houses and businesses; while a related raid was carried out by gardai in Co Donegal.

The Northern Bank estimates the IRA made off with about �9.9m, but the rest of the missing money has not yet surfaced.

The money trail has also led overseas, and gardai have made visits to Britain and to Bulgaria where an Irish-based company had intended to invest in property.

A number of bank accounts had been set up by the company in relation to its legitimate investment plans following a visit to Sofia by an Irish delegation that included Ted Cunningham and Phil Flynn, a former vice president of Sinn Fein and senior trade unionist.

The Irish Independent also reports that Cognotec, the foreign exchange trading software group headed by Brian Maccaba, lost $4.9m in 2003 to take its accumulated deficit to $91.65m, the latest accounts show.

The huge accumulated losses meant that the company's liabilities exceeded its assets by $915,785, causing auditors Ernst & Young to warn that this balance sheet situation may require the convening of an extraordinary general meeting.

"The balance sheet shows an excess of liabilities over assets and, in our opinion, on that basis there did exist at 30 November 2003, a financial situation which under Section 40 (1) of the Companies (Amendment) Act 1983 may require the convening of an extraordinary general meeting of the company," the auditors noted.

According to the financial statement, the accounts were prepared on a going-concern basis as the directors believe current working capital is sufficient to meet the needs of the company until positive cash flow is generated.


Turnover for the year to November 30 2003 was $12.6m, down from almost $15m the previous year.

Staff numbers dropped from 91 in 2002 to 57 in 2003.

The average staff cost is $8,294.

Directors' remuneration shot up by 88pc in the period to $552,285, although it is unclear how many directors were paid in 2003, as four directors resigned that year.

The Maccaba-headed company paid corporation tax of $326,366 in the period but a note in the accounts shows it had a tax loss carried forward at year end of $80.4m. The group had debts of $11.55m, according to the accounts.

Maccaba, one of the highest profile Irish businessmen during the tech boom at the end of the nineties, hit the front pages for all the wrong reasons last year. He lost a case against a London rabbi over lurid allegations about his private life.

During what became known as the 'Indecent Proposal case' - echoing the plot of the Hollywood film starring Robert Redford - Mr Maccaba had accused a rabbi of spreading "poisonous" allegations that he was a "sexual predator" and "serial adulterer" who chased after young married Jewish women.

The entrepreneur is thought to have been hit with legal costs of nearly �3m, the longest slander case in legal history.

Maccaba founded Cognotec in Dublin in 1991 and the company has raised about $90m from international investors, including SoftBank and Warburg Pincus.

The Irish Times reports that Dublin solicitor Brian O'Donnell has emerged as the preferred bidder for a �115 million (�167.43 million) office property in London's docklands, less than four months after he spent �135 million on a neighbouring development.

Mr O'Donnell, a former managing partner of William Fry, and his wife Dr Mary Patricia O'Donnell were told late last week that they had beaten off a number of other wealthy bidders, including at least two Irish businessmen, to win control of 17 Columbus Courtyard in Canary Wharf.


The 18,600 square-metre office building is currently occupied by investment bank, Credit Suisse First Boston on a letting agreement that has another 23 years to run.

The occupancy yields about �6.5 million each year in rent.

Mr O'Donnell, who was advised on the deal by the corporate finance team at Deloitte in Dublin, will buy the property from the Canary Wharf Group.

He is thought to have submitted a highly-leveraged bid that could see him put down less than �20 million of his own funds.

His status as preferred bidder means he has been selected ahead of at least four other would-be buyers.

These are thought to have included two prominent Irish businessmen who were respectively advised by Bank of Ireland Private Banking and KPMG.

Other interested parties included a Middle Eastern consortium and a teachers' pension fund from the US.

The Columbus Courtyard is just the second building to be sold off by Canary Wharf since the group was taken private by Morgan Stanley's Songbird consortium a year ago.

Mr and Mrs O'Donnell bought the first such property, 15 Westferry Circus, in March just days after the British Chancellor, of the Exchequer Gordon Brown, abolished stamp duty in "deprived" areas, including Canary Wharf.

Stamp duty could previously have been charged at 4 per cent of the purchase price.

The yield of about 5.5 per cent that the O'Donnells will draw from the Columbus building marks a decline from the 6.2 per cent that came with 17 Westferry Circus, with the fall linked to the downward movement in UK swap rates in the interim.

The 17 Columbus Courtyard property was built in 1998 and has been occupied by Credit Suisse First Boston from the start.

The Irish Times says that Taoiseach Bertie Ahern successfully fought off moves to harmonise European tax rates in the troubled draft constitutional treaty for the European Union (EU).

But a new battle on taxation may now be looming after the Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel suggested that the EU could part-fund its budget with a levy on international financial transactions.

Such a tax is unlikely to find support on Merrion Street. It would hit Ireland harder than most EU members, given the very high level of international transaction in the IFSC in Dublin.

Yet Mr Schuessel, who takes over the EU's rotating presidency at the end of this year, said said it should not continue to be the case that "every euro that we need for [ the EU] is drawn from national budgets".

Interviewed in the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, he said fundamental budget reform was required to that provide the EU with its own source of cash.

"I suggest there should be an automatic financing mechanism for part of the EU budget - for example through taxation of international financial transactions," he said.

About half the EU's budget, worth �106.3 billion in 2005, is paid for by contributions from member states based on their gross national product (GNP). The rest comes mainly from levies on agricultural imports and customs duties and VAT .

EU leaders meeting in Brussels last month failed to agree on the bloc's 2007-2013 funding and Mr Schuessel said budget talks were becoming "ever more brutal". He warned that if the EU was not given its own source of cash, there would be an "unprecedented scrap over distribution".

His proposal for a tax on international transactions similar to one made by French President Jacques Chirac to help fight Aids.

The Irish Examiner reports that recruitment activity remained buoyant in the second quarter of the year, Bank of Ireland said yesterday. 

The bank said the level of job advertising in the three months to June was 6% ahead of the same period last year and the retail and professional sectors were particularly strong. 

Chief economist Dan McLaughlin said the demand for labour continued to grow strongly and immigration was playing �a key role� in filling the gap between demand and Irish-based supply.

�Ireland is at full employment and this pace of job creation is significantly outstripping the growth in the indigenous supply of labour, so the balance can only be met by tapping into the excess supply of labour available across the EU,� said Dr McLaughlin.

Job ads in the financial sector were 48% ahead of the same quarter last year, while ads placed by retailers were 35% higher. 

There were 20% more professional jobs on offer, but slowdowns were recorded in construction, information technology and manufacturing, where job ads were down by around 15%.

The Irish Examiner also reports that Irish people who regularly buy goods and services over the internet believe it is a relatively safe method of shopping, according to a new EU survey. 

Just over 2% of customers who made purchases online experienced difficulty in obtaining redress or repair following an initial complaint.

Some 3.6% of respondents said they were annoyed that delivery costs were higher than anticipated, while 3% complained that suppliers failed to provide a satisfactory response to a complaint. 

Only 1.4% of e-shoppers in Ireland expressed concern about a lack of security with regards to payment over the internet with just half that number experiencing fraudulent use of either credit or debit cards. 

The most frequent complaint by Irish internet users was the fact that delivery times were longer than promised a fault experienced by almost 7% of those who bought goods online.

The Financial Times reports that European Union (EU) regulators have expressed concerns that any US government decision to prosecute the US business of KPMG, one of the big four accounting firms, could badly damage the already-concentrated audit market.

The regulators have stopped short of demanding that the US government refrain from bringing criminal charges against KPMG for past tax work but they do not want to see the number of big accounting firms falling to three.

Arthur Andersen, once the world's biggest accounting firm, collapsed after the US justice department brought criminal charges against its US partnership in 2002.

KPMG could suffer a similar fate if the department presses criminal charges against its US partnership over past sales of tax avoidance products to clients.

A decision is expected soon but the justice department and KPMG declined to comment.

KPMG, Deloitte, Ernst & Young and PwC dominate the auditing of multinational companies.

Since Andersen's demise, regulators have often expressed concerns about the high concentration of the audit market and the lack of choice big companies have.

European regulators accept they cannot interfere with the US justice department's decision on KPMG but they are concerned about the potential consequences.

An official at the European Commission said: "It was already an issue going down to four big accounting firms. Obviously, having only three would be an even bigger problem."

Some European regulators have relayed their concerns about the potential consequences of the KPMG case to their counterparts in the US.

Andersen's international network of accounting businesses disintegrated after the justice department pressed obstruction of justice charges against its US partnership, which had been auditor to Enron, the energy company that collapsed in 2001.

The US Justice Department's investigation into KPMG's US business focuses on sales of tax avoidance products to clients between 1998 and 2002.

Last month KPMG admitted some former partners had engaged in unlawful conduct during that period.


The Financial Times also reports that at the end of a shortened, dramatic trading week, shares on Wall Street went out on high after good economic news prevailed over terrorist attacks and surging oil prices.

With no trading on Monday because of the Fourth of July holiday, oil prices, spurred on by a vicious hurricane season that threatens the country�s oil supplies, continued to be of major concern on Wall Street.

Positive data on unemployment and consumer confidence coupled with some strong figures from the US earning season helped the markets to weather the storm and all three indices rose more than 1 per cent on Friday.

Friday�s data showed from the Labor Department showed that US employers added 146,000 jobs in June. This was below Wall Street forecasts, but the unemployment rate fell to its lowest since September 2001, a government report showed. �What we have seen is a tug of war between politics and corporate fundamentals,� said Quincy Krosby, chief investment strategist at The Hartford.

One such corporate fundamental was the gains made by Alcoa, the world�s biggest aluminium maker, that on Friday posted the best quarterly profit in its history. Its shares gained 4.3 per cent on Friday, taking it to $27.20. Over the week it was up 4.1 per cent.

By the close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had climbed 1.4 per cent to 10,449.14 and the broader S&P 500 was up 1.2 per cent at 1,211.86. The technology heavy Nasdaq gained 1.8 per cent, taking it to 2,112.88.

Since the close of trade last Friday the Dow was up 1.4 per cent, the S&P 1.2 per cent and the Nasdaq 1.8 per cent.

The recovery makes for a striking contrast with other recent atrocities that sent markets reeling and showed traders now fully �price in� terrorism. While the markets recovered in one session from the London blast, it took the S&P 500 more than two years to recover to its pre-September 11 levels. It took 14 session to recover from the Madrid blasts.

The market was helped in its swift recovery, said Ms Krosby, in part because of the impressive show of resolve by Tony Blair and George Bush and because of strong underlying consumer and economic news.

One of the most striking comebacks of the week was by the airline industry, which was badly hit by the double whammy of an oil spike and a terrorist attack but still managed to rally. The Amex Airline index was up 1.8 per cent at 48.03. Delta shares rose by 3.6 per cent on Friday after its share price plummeted in the wake of the news from London. However, it was still down 6 per cent over the week, finishing at $3.50.

The tourist sector also made a comeback with the Marriott International hotel group up on last Friday by1.2 per cent at $69.49. The cruise operator Carnival also recovered after Thursday, and ended the week virtually unchanged at $54.74.

Ms Quincy said the continued good health of America�s shoppers had also helped to lift markets.

�The consumer confidence figures and the good retail sales showed that, despite higher prices at the pump, the US consumer is still alive and well,� he said.

Wal-Mart, the world�s biggest retailer, certainly had a good week with shares up 3.4 per cent at $49.90. The company was helped by an announcement on Thursday that its June same-store sales rose 4.5 per cent, helped by seasonal merchandise such as air conditioners and summer clothes.

Shares of Gap were up 5.8 per cent at $20.97 and Target advanced 4.3 per cent, to $56.93.

By mid-week, Exxon was among the biggest drags on both the Dow and the S&P 500, falling 1.7 per cent to $59.11 on Wednesday. However, it finished 1.9 per cent up from the previous week at $59.40.

The most dramatic gains of the week came from a group of little-known specialist security companies that saw their shares leap on the terrorist news from London.

Ipix and Digital Recorders, two companies that make surveillance devices, both saw their share prices jump on the news of the London attacks. Ipix soared 23.7 per cent on the day before finishing the week 2.8 per cent higher at $2.90.

Wolfgang Munchau in the FT, under a headline Europe must tackle terrorism, writes:  

We do not know the next target of the terrorists after Madrid and London. Maybe Rome, where prime minister Silvio Berlusconi will be facing an election next year. Or maybe Copenhagen. The Danish government also helped US President George W. Bush in the war against Iraq. But the surprise of the timing of the London attack reminds us that the terrorists do not usually behave as we expect them to.

The French and Germans also have reason to fear that Paris and Berlin, too, may be future targets despite their governments� opposition to the Iraq war.

But even if we have no clue where the al-Qaeda network will strike next, we know they operate on a pan-European level. After September 11, al-Qaeda has focused increasingly on the Middle East and Europe, which are today far more vulnerable and less prepared to cope with terrorist attacks than the US.

One reason is the way the European Union has chosen to organise the fight against terrorism. Anti-terrorism is not the business of the EU and its institutions. Europol, the EU�s nascent police services, has extended its official remit to include anti-terrorism. But it hardly matters. The fight against terrorism has remained primarily the job of national agencies, intelligence services and police forces. They were set up at a time when the main terrorist threat in Europe was indeed national � the IRA in the UK, Eta in Spain, Baader-Meinhof in Germany or the Red Brigades in Italy.

The trouble is that the al-Qaeda terrorists are thinking more European than Europe�s national anti-terrorism agencies. It is therefore a legitimate question to ask whether our present institutional set-up is still appropriate. Or rather, whether it is the best conceivable system we could think of, whether we would reinvent it in this manner if it did not exist today.

The answer to all these questions is an emphatic No. If we had to build a new system from scratch, we would not establish independent national systems in each country. After the Madrid bombings last year, the EU only went so far as to set up an embryonic anti-terrorism unit, headed by the Dutchman Gijs De Vries, the European co-ordinator for counter-terrorism.

As his title suggests, the main job at EU level is co-ordination. It is essentially a bureaucratic agency, very much the kind of thing one would expect the EU to do. Mr De Vries is not the head of a European Central Intelligence Agency. He has no agents in the field. His job is to provide a bird�s-eye view analysis of terrorist threats in Europe.

There has been some good progress in bringing together national security and anti-terrorism analysts as part of Mr de Vries�s activities. The European arrest warrant and the setting up of joint investigation teams of national police forces were also helpful.

While the EU has a limited role in intelligence analysis, it has no operational responsibilities. The defenders of the status-quo always say there already exists a great deal of co-operation between the national security services, on a �need-to-know� basis, mostly bilaterally or trilaterally. We are assured � and have no reason to disbelieve � that this system works reasonably well. The agencies have apparently prevented several deadly attacks. One case we know of occurred in December 2001 when French and German police foiled a terrorist attempt to blow up the Christmas market in Strasbourg.

Despite these successes, it is doubtful that this is the best the EU can do. Richard Falkenrath, a former White House adviser on homeland security, has argued that the EU should tear down the wall between military intelligence and civil law enforcement.

The EU is the natural level at which to base an effective homeland security agency, comprising an analytical and an operation arm.
>The reason is that the EU has become a deeply integrated political and economic area. In the so-called Schengen area, citizens enjoy passport-free travel. Travelling to the non-Schengen parts of the EU is not difficult either. In such an area it would be nonsensical to have different standards of airport security or different national systems for the protection of the EU�s external borders.

You might say that this is politically impossible. After all, national security is at the heart of national sovereignty. But this is not how the EU�s citizens see it. Opinion polls � even in eurosceptic Britain � suggest a large majority want the EU to fight terrorism. They no longer believe that national governments can deliver the appropriate level of security in the EU.

This is the fundamental trouble with the EU. It does what it should not be doing, such as running discriminatory agricultural price support systems, while it does not what it should be doing, such as fighting terrorism and providing security.

We have all marvelled at the stoicism and defiance of Londoners in the aftermath of Thursday�s attacks. But it is not our attitude that will defeat terrorism. It is the way we organise the fight. We should have had a fundamental debate about the effectiveness of our anti-terrorism systems after the Madrid bombing last year. We urgently need it now.

The New York Times reports that  Goldman Sachs and Allianz of Germany are in talks to acquire a $1 billion stake in China's largest state-owned bank, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, according to a person briefed on the discussions.

The talks come at a time when some of the world's biggest financial institutions are rushing into China to acquire stakes in some of the country's large but troubled state-owned banks ahead of planned initial public offerings in the next few years. The Bank of America said last month that it would pay $3 billion for a 9 percent stake in the nation's third-largest lender, the China Construction Bank, which is expected to offer shares to the public late this year.

And UBS said last month that it was considering investing as much as $500 million in the Bank of China, another huge state-owned bank.

"All the big financial institutions want a piece of the action," said Jack J. T. Huang, who oversees China coverage for the law firm Jones Day in Taipei, Taiwan. "This is not necessarily a rational decision when you look at the numbers. But these institutions believe the government won't allow these banks to fail. They will step in to help them succeed."

I.C.B.C. has nearly 400,000 employees, more than 100 million customers and about $500 billion in assets. It is unclear how large a stake in the bank Goldman and Allianz may get. The negotiations were reported by the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong on Saturday.

Goldman and other large investment banks may be positioning themselves to help take the banks public in the next few years in deals that could result in hundreds of millions of dollars in investment banking fees.

Citigroup was initially expected to help take China Construction Bank public, but bankers said that deal is now likely to be handled by Morgan Stanley and its Chinese joint venture partner, the China International Capital Corporation, after Citigroup passed on buying a stake.

But the huge investments could be risky for some of the financial institutions because China's banking system has been struggling for years with massive debts, poor management and deep-rooted corruption.

The Chinese government has consistently stepped in to help bail out the banks. For example, it injected $45 billion into the China Construction Bank and the Bank of China in 2003. And analysts say the government is determined to revitalize the nation's banking system as it prepares to open the market to foreign banks.

I.C.B.C. is one of the most troubled. For years, the bank has racked up bad loans tied to poorly operating state-owned enterprises. It has also been plagued by corruption. In the past year, more than 350 I.C.B.C. officials were punished after an auditor found over $800 million in irregularities at the bank. Some bank officials were arrested on charges of trying to steal about $900 million.

The bank has also been a victim: a private company used forged documents to borrow nearly $900 million from the bank, according to reports in state news outlets.

But analysts say the government has pressed the big financial institutions to help clean up the banking system by taking sizable stakes in the four largest state-owned banks, which also include the Agricultural Bank of China.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley - considered the two most powerful foreign investment banks in China - have each purchased a substantial number of bad loans from China's financial institutions.

Goldman, J. P. Morgan Chase and I.C.B.C. have also teamed up to agree to loan about $9 billion to the China National Offshore Oil Corporation, one of China's largest state-owned oil companies, if it succeeds in acquiring theUnocal Corporation, an American company. The Chinese oil company, known as Cnooc, is in a bidding war with Chevron over Unocal, and Goldman and J. P. Morgan are Cnooc's financial advisers in that effort.

Indeed, Goldman has moved aggressively in recent years to strengthen its operations in China and solidify its ties to the government in the expectation that the country could some day be a source of billions of dollars in profits.

Henry M. Paulson Jr., Goldman's chairman, has made dozens of trips to China in recent years. And last year, Goldman agreed to donate $67 million to the government to bail out a Chinese brokerage firm.

Goldman then got approval to form a joint venture that could operate in China's domestic securities market. Altogether Goldman's investment in the joint venture is expected to top $200 million in the first few years.

Goldman has ample money to invest in a deal now. It finished raising $8.5 billion in April for Goldman Sachs Capital Partners V, one of the largest investment funds created this year.

The NYT says that banner ads, the Internet's favorite petri dish, have begun yet another round of experimentation, this time as shopping assistants.

Late last month, Chitika (pronounced CHIH-tih-ka), an advertising company based in Marlborough, Mass., began testing eMiniMalls, a technology that scans a Web page, chooses a product the reader might be interested in, then displays banner ads that are miniature shopping comparison pages, with prices, product reviews and links to merchants.

Analysts and online executives say the idea may find a market if consumers can overcome their longstanding habit of ignoring anything that appears in a rectangular box toward the top of a Web page.

"I know it's interactive, and shopping search is a good idea, but it's still perceived as this thing, this space," said Gary Stein, an analyst with Jupiter Research, an online consultancy. "Banners just aren't all that great at attracting attention."

Chitika's unusual approach to banners is aimed at attracting attention. The ads, which are being tested by a handful of online publishers, including the college savings site, allow users to click on different tabs to view various features of a product without being whisked away to another site.

For instance, on a client's Web page that mentions MP3 players, Chitika could instantly send to the publisher a banner ad featuring iPods available at three different retailers. Next to the merchants' names and their prices, users could click on a tab to see brief product reviews, descriptions and quotes about iPods from selected online Web logs. Only when users click on a merchant's link are they taken to the retailer's product page for that item.

At that point, the merchant pays a fee averaging about $1, whether there is a purchase or not, to Chitika, which shares an undisclosed portion with, the product comparison site that feeds merchant and product data to Chitika.

Indeed, the affiliation with is one of two fairly strong factors that could help Chitika gain the attention of advertisers and publishers. Besides the ascendancy of shopping search engines, there is a growing appetite among publishers for so-called contextual advertising.

Online merchants and investors have grown fond of shopping comparison sites in the last year. Sites like Shopzilla,, Nextag, Pricegrabber and others were visited by about one-third of all active online users in the United States in May, according to Nielsen/NetRatings, an Internet consultancy. Those numbers will probably climb during the holiday season, when shoppers look to comparison sites for bargains and gift ideas.

Merchants, who typically pay to list their products on the shopping sites, report fairly good success in attracting customers this way. The resulting increases in shopping search revenues at and Shopzilla led to those companies being bought last month, when eBay acquired for $620 million, and E. W. Scripps, the media company, purchased Shopzilla for $525 million.

Google has helped invigorate the market for contextual ads, with its AdSense service. In that program, publishers devote a certain amount of space - typically near the bottom of the page - to text advertisements. Google scans the Web page and plugs in text ads for products that are somehow related to its content. When someone clicks on an ad, Google sends the publisher a commission.

AdSense has gained a huge following over the last two years among Web publishers, who particularly like that Google sells and places the ads on their behalf.

Chitika can offer the same benefits to publishers, while also offering them the ability to control what goes into the banner and, in the near future, when and how its banners can be displayed. For instance, they may opt to leave the Chitika ads aside until readers click on pages for which the publisher has been unable to attract high-paying advertisers. Or, they may block the listings of merchants who compete with the publisher's existing ad clients. Chitika clients may also eschew the banner format in favor of a square display.

According to Venkat Kolluri, Chitika's chief executive, a handful of mostly small publishers began testing the service in the last week of June, including bloggers, home decorating sites and a site offering money-saving advice. Mr. Kolluri said "several hundred" more publishers have applied to receive the ads - a process that requires no fees, and the insertion of only one line of computer code to pages on which the ads will appear.

Mr. Kolluri said early results suggest that people click on more than 1 percent of the eMiniMall ads they see, compared with the industry average of less than half of 1 percent for banner ads.

For now, the biggest publisher to sign up for the eMiniMalls is Upromise, which offers its members the ability to open a college fund with cash rebates they receive by shopping at certain merchants.

David Coppins, vice president of the online mall for Upromise, said his site would introduce eMiniMalls on the site's home page before the end of September. The eMiniMalls will feature only products from the site's 350 retail affiliates.

"I've been dying to do something like this," he said, "but it would've involved us changing our backend systems."

For now, will retain the rights to distribute its listings through Chitika, but Mr. Kolluri said he planned to solicit other shopping search engines, so the engines would be competing to offer the best terms to merchants.

Josh Wetzel, director of business development for, which is based in Brisbane, Calif., said Chitika's initiative could help increase exposure for merchants. "I definitely think it's got a future," he said. "It's taking the AdSense idea to the next step, and making it very specific to commerce."

Corey Jeffery, an analyst with Nielsen/NetRatings, said the concept was so close to Google's AdSense model, in fact, that Chitika "should keep an eye in their rearview mirror."

Google would not say if it might consider a similar offering, but even if it did not, others could be watching for the market's response to Chitika, Mr. Jeffery said.

Guy Fawkes ~ Father Of Vendetta Anonymous.
This week in Dublin, three former executives of the now-defunct [Rothschild] Anglo Irish Bank went on trial for illegal practices that eventually crashed the economy, leading to an 85 billion euro bailout by the government – aka still-angry taxpayers.
Years in the making, the complex trial is expected to last up to six months, involving 24 million documents, 800 witness statement and over 300 jury volunteers who have been warned they won’t be chosen if they’re too peeved to be “fair,” even though the banksters evidently weren’t.

England’s National Holiday ~ The Burning Of Catholic Guy Fawkes Effigy. General George Washington Outlawed This Anti-Catholic practice by puritans.
On this day in 1775, Continental Army commander in chief General George Washington condemns his troops’ planned celebration of the British anti-Catholic holiday, Guy Fawkes Night.
In his general orders for the day, Washington criticized “that ridiculous and childish custom of burning the Effigy of the pope,” part of the traditional Guy Fawkes celebration.
He went on to express his bewilderment that there could be “Officers and Soldiers in this army so void of common sense” and berated the troops for their inability to recognize that “defense of the general Liberty of America” demanded expressions of “public thanks” to the  Catholics who Washington believed to be necessary allies, and wrote that he found “monstrous” any actions, which might “be insulting their Religion.”
On the night of November 5, 1605, [This was the same year the Puritan Parliment genocide of Catholics In Dublin, Ireland Came To An End] the conspiracy by English Catholics to kill King James I and replace him with his Catholic daughter, Princess Elizabeth, was cut short by the arrest of Guy Fawkes, who had been charged with placing gunpowder under the Houses of Parliament.
The plot involved digging a tunnel under the Palace of Westminster, filling it with gunpowder and then triggering a deadly explosion during the ceremonial opening of Parliament, which would have resulted in the death of not only James I, but also the leading Protestant nobility. From then on, November 5 was celebrated in Britain and its colonies with a bonfire burning either Guy Fawkes or the Roman Catholic Pope in effigy.
Tho the corrupt Puritan Parliament may have got Fawkes in 1606, this same corrupt Puritan Parliament, would be executed by King Charles II in 1660 for usurping the laws of England.
In a short 28 years later after the execution of Guy Fawkes, in what was to Become The United States Of America, Father Andrew White in 1634 stepped upon Maryland [For Religious Freedom] named after Henrietta Maria (King Charles 1~ Catholic Wife From France).

The deal was announced quietly, just before the holidays, almost like the government was hoping people were too busy hanging stockings by the fireplace to notice.
Flooring politicians, lawyers and investigators all over the world, the U.S. Justice Department granted a total walk to executives of the British-based bank HSBC for the largest drug-and-terrorism money-laundering case ever.
Yes, they issued a fine – $1.9 billion, or about five weeks’ [worth of HSBC] profit – but they didn’t extract so much as one dollar or one day in jail from any individual, despite a decade of stupefying abuses.

People may have outrage fatigue about Wall Street and more stories about billionaire greedheads getting away with more stealing often cease to amaze.
But the HSBC case went miles beyond the usual paper-pushing, keypad-punching­ sort-of crime, committed by geeks in ties, normally associated­ with Wall Street. In this case, the bank literally got away with murder – well, aiding and abetting it, anyway.

For at least half a decade, the storied British colonial banking power helped to wash hundreds of millions of dollars for drug mobs, including Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, suspected in tens of thousands of murders just in the past 10 years – people so totally evil, jokes former New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, that “they make the guys on Wall Street look good.”

The bank also moved money for organizations linked to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, and for Russian gangsters; helped countries like Iran, the Sudan and North Korea evade sanctions; and, in between helping murderers and terrorists and rogue states, aided countless common tax cheats in hiding their cash.
“They violated every ***damn law in the book,” says Jack Blum, an attorney and former Senate investigator who headed a major bribery investigation against Lockheed in the 1970s that led to the passage of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
“They took every imaginable form of illegal and illicit business.”
That nobody from the bank went to jail or paid a dollar in individual fines is nothing new in this era of financial crisis. What is different about this settlement is that the Justice Department, for the first time, admitted why it decided to go soft on this particular kind of criminal.
It was worried that anything more than a wrist slap for HSBC might undermine the world economy. “Had the U.S. authorities decided to press criminal charges,” said Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer at a press conference to announce the settlement, “HSBC would almost certainly have lost its banking license in the U.S., the future of the institution would have been under threat and the entire banking system would have been destabilized.” HSBC Mexican Drug Cartels

So Instead Of Shutting HSBC Down For Crimes ~ HSBC Begins Shutting Down Citizen’s Banking Accounts.

It was the dawn of a new era. In the years just after 9/11, even being breathed on by a suspected terrorist could land you in extralegal detention for the rest of your life.
But now, when you’re Too Big to Jail, you can cop to laundering terrorist cash and violating the Trading With the Enemy Act, and not only will you not be prosecuted for it, but the government will go out of its way to make sure you won’t lose your license.

But the Justice Department wasn’t finished handing out Christmas goodies. A little over a week later, Breuer was back in front of the press, giving a cushy deal to another huge international firm, the Swiss bank UBS, which had just admitted to a key role in perhaps the biggest antitrust/price-fixing case in history, the so-called LIBOR scandal, a massive interest-rate­rigging conspiracy involving hundreds of trillions (“trillions,” with a “t”) of dollars in financial products.
While two minor players did face charges, Breuer and the Justice Department worried aloud about global stability as they explained why no criminal charges were being filed against the parent company.
“Our goal here,” Breuer said, “is not to destroy a major financial institution.”
A reporter at the UBS presser pointed out to Breuer that UBS had already been busted in 2009 in a major tax-evasion case, and asked a sensible question.
“This is a bank that has broken the law before,” the reporter said. “So why not be tougher?”
“I don’t know what tougher means,” answered the assistant attorney general. Also known as the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, HSBC has always been associated with drugs.
Founded in 1865, HSBC became the major commercial bank in colonial China after the conclusion of the Second Opium War.
If you’re rusty in your history of Britain’s various wars of Imperial Rape, the Second Opium War was the one where Britain and other European powers basically slaughtered lots of Chinese people until they agreed to legalize the dope trade (much like they had done in the First Opium War, which ended in 1842).

A century and a half later, it appears not much has changed. With its strong on-the-ground presence in many of the various ex-colonial territories in Asia and Africa, and its rich history of cross-cultural moral flexibility, HSBC has a very different international footprint than other Too Big to Fail banks like Wells Fargo or Bank of America.

While the American banking behemoths mainly gorged themselves on the toxic residential-mortgage trade that caused the 2008 financial bubble, HSBC took a slightly different path, turning itself into the destination bank for domestic and international scoundrels of every possible persuasion.
Three-time losers doing life in California prisons for street felonies might be surprised to learn that the no-jail settlement Lanny Breuer worked out for HSBC was already the bank’s third strike.
In fact, as a mortifying 334-page report issued by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations last summer made plain, HSBC ignored a truly awesome quantity of official warnings.

An arrestable class and an unarrestable class. We always suspected it, now it’s admitted. So what do we do?

Hamilton exemplified the contempt which the Eight Banking Cabal Families hold towards “”common people”", once stating:
“All communities divide themselves into the few and the many. The first are the rich and the well born, the others the mass of the people…
The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge and determine right. Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share of government. They will check the unsteadiness of the second.”

Perhaps Alex’s position above was to over compensate for his own shady ‘well born’ beginnings. It of course is not his fault and that never should be held against him. But the above quote by Alex is callous, narcissistic, and in keeping with how the banking sociopath feels toward his fellow man.

We always suspected it, now it’s admitted. So what do we do?
In April 2003, with 9/11 still fresh in the minds of American regulators, the Federal Reserve sent HSBC’s American subsidiary a cease-and-desist­ letter, ordering it to clean up its act and make a better effort to keep criminals and terrorists from opening accounts at its bank.
One of the bank’s bigger customers, for instance, was Saudi Arabia’s Al Rajhi bank, which had been linked by the CIA and other government agencies to terrorism.
According to a document cited in a Senate report, one of the bank’s founders, Sulaiman bin Abdul Aziz Al Rajhi, was among 20 early financiers of Al Qaeda, a member of what Osama bin Laden himself apparently called the “Golden Chain.”
In 2003, the CIA wrote a confidential report about the bank, describing Al Rajhi as a “conduit for extremist finance.” In the report, details of which leaked to the public by 2007, the agency noted that Sulaiman Al Rajhi consciously worked to help Islamic “charities” hide their true nature, ordering the bank’s board to “explore financial instruments that would allow the bank’s charitable contributions to avoid official Saudi scrutiny.”
(The bank has denied any role in financing extremists.) In January 2005, while under the cloud of its first double-secret­-probation agreement with the U.S., HSBC decided to partially sever ties with Al Rajhi. Note the word“partially”:
The decision­ would only apply to Al Rajhi banking and not to its related trading company, a distinction that tickled executives inside the bank. In March 2005, Alan Ketley, a compliance officer for HSBC’s American subsidiary, HBUS, gleefully told Paul Plesser, head of his bank’s Global Foreign Exchange Department, that it was cool to do business with Al Rajhi Trading.
“Looks like you’re fine to continue dealing with Al Rajhi,” he wrote. “You’d better be making lots of money!” But this backdoor arrangement with bin Laden’s suspected “Golden Chain” banker wasn’t direct enough – many HSBC executives wanted the whole shebang restored.
In a remarkable e-mail sent in May 2005, Christopher Lok, HSBC’s head of global bank notes, asked a colleague if they could maybe go back to fully doing business with Al Rajhi as soon as one of America’s primary banking regulators, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, lifted the 2003 cease-and-desist order:
“After the OCC closeout and that chapter is hopefully finished, could we revisit Al Rajhi again? London compliance has taken a more lenient view.”
After being slapped with the order in 2003, HSBC began blowing off its requirements both in letter and in spirit – and on a mass scale, too. Instead of punishing the bank, though, the government’s response was to send it more angry letters.
Typically, those came in the form of so-called “MRA” (Matters Requiring Attention) letters sent by the OCC. Most of these touched upon the same theme, i.e., HSBC failing to do ‘due diligence’ on the shady characters who might be depositing money in its accounts or using its branches to wire money.
HSBC racked up these “You’re Still Screwing Up and We Know It” orders by the dozen and in just one brief stretch between 2005 and 2006, it received 30 different formal warnings.
bush obama 8
Nonetheless, in February 2006 the OCC under George Bush suddenly decided to release HSBC from the 2003 cease-and-desist­ order. In other words, HSBC basically violated its parole 30 times in just more than a year and got off anyway.
The bank was, to use the street term, “off paper” – and free to let the Al Rajhis of the world come rushing back. After HSBC fully restored its relationship with the apparently terrorist-friendly Al Rajhi Bank in Saudi Arabia, it supplied the bank with nearly 1 billion U.S. dollars.
When asked by HSBC what it needed all its American cash for, Al Rajhi explained that people in Saudi Arabia need dollars for all sorts of reasons. “During summer time,” the bank wrote, “we have a high demand from tourists traveling for their vacations.”
The Treasury Department keeps a list compiled by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, or OFAC, and American banks are not supposed to do business with anyone on the OFAC list. But the bank knowingly helped banned individuals elude the sanctions process.
One such individual was the powerful Syrian businessman Rami Makhlouf, a close confidant of the Assad family. When Makhlouf appeared on the OFAC list in 2008, HSBC responded not by severing ties with him but by trying to figure out what to do about the accounts the Syrian power broker had in its Geneva and Cayman Islands branches.
“We have determined that accounts held in the Caymans are not in the jurisdiction of and are not housed on any systems in, the United States,” wrote one compliance officer. “Therefore, we will not be reporting this match to OFAC.”
We know the guy’s on a terrorist list, but his accounts are in a place the Americans can’t search, so screw them.
Remember, this was in 2008 – five years after HSBC had first been caught doing this sort of thing. And even four years after that, when being grilled by Michigan Sen. Carl Levin in July 2012, an HSBC executive refused to absolutely say that the bank would inform the government if Makhlouf or another OFAC-listed name popped up in its system – saying only that it would “do everything we can.”
The Senate exchange highlighted an extremely frustrating dynamic government investigators have had to face with Too Big to Jail megabanks: The same thing that makes them so attractive to shady customers – their ability to instantaneously move money around the world to places like the Cayman Islands and Switzerland – makes it easy for them to play dumb with regulators by hiding behind secrecy laws.

When it wasn’t banking for shady Third World characters, HSBC was training its mental firepower on the problem of finding creative ways to allow it to do business with countries under U.S. sanction, particularly Iran.
In one memo from HSBC’s Middle East subsidiary, HBME, the bank notes that it could make a lot of money with Iran, provided it dealt with what it termed “difficulties” – you know, those pesky laws.
“It is anticipated that Iran will become a source of increasing income for the group going forward,” the memo says, “and if we are to achieve this goal we must adopt a positive stance when encountering difficulties.”
The “positive stance” included a technique called “stripping,” in which foreign subsidiaries like HSBC Middle East or HSBC Europe would remove references to Iran in wire transactions to and from the United States, often putting themselves in place of the actual client name to avoid triggering OFAC alerts. (In other words, the transaction would have HBME listed on one end, instead of an Iranian client.)
  1. For more than half a decade, a whopping $19 billion in transactions involving Iran went through the American financial system, with the Iranian connection kept hidden in 75 to 90 percent of those transactions.
  2. HSBC has been headquartered in England for more than two decades – it’s Europe’s largest bank, in fact – but it has major subsidiary operations in every corner of the world.
  3. What’s come out in this investigation is that the chiefs in the parent company often knew about shady transactions when the regional subsidiary did not.
  4. In the case of banned Iranian transactions, for instance, there are multiple e-mails from HSBC’s compliance head, David Bagley, in which he admits that HSBC’s American subsidiary probably has no clue that HSBC Europe has been sending it buttloads of banned Iranian money.
“I am not sure that HBUS are aware of the fact that HBEU are already providing clearing facilities for four Iranian banks,” he wrote in 2003. The following year, he made the same observation. “I suspect that HBUS are not aware that [Iranian] payments may be passing through them,” he wrote.
declaration of independence purple tone What’s the upside for a bank like HSBC to do business with banned individuals, crooks and so on? The answer is simple:
“If you have clients who are interested in ‘specialty services’­ – that’s the euphemism for the bad stuff – you can charge ‘em whatever you want,” says former Senate investigator Blum. “The margin on laundered money for years has been roughly 20 percent.”
  1. Those charges might come in many forms, from upfront fees to promises to keep deposits at the bank for certain lengths of time.
  2. However you structure it, the possibilities for profit are enormous, provided you’re willing to accept money from almost anywhere.
  3. HSBC, its roots in the raw battlefield capitalism of the old British colonies and
  4. its strong presence in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, had more access to customers needing “specialty services” than perhaps any other bank.
U.S. Mexico Border Drug Beheadings.
U.S. Mexico Border Drug Beheadings.
And it worked hard to satisfy those customers. In perhaps the pinnacle innovation in the history of sleazy banking practices, HSBC ran a preposterous offshore operation in Mexico that allowed anyone to walk into any HSBC Mexico branch and open a U.S.-dollar account (HSBC Mexico accounts had to be in pesos) via a so-called “Cayman Islands branch” of HSBC Mexico.
The evidence suggests customers barely had to submit a real name and address, much less explain the legitimate origins of their deposits. If you can imagine a drive-thru heart-transplant clinic or an airline that keeps a fully-stocked minibar in the cockpit of every airplane, you’re in the ballpark of grasping the regulatory absurdity of HSBC Mexico’s “Cayman Islands branch.”
The whole thing was a pure shell company, run by Mexicans in Mexican bank branches. At one point, this figment of the bank’s corporate imagination had 50,000 clients, holding a total of $2.1 billion in assets. In 2002, an internal audit found that 41 percent of reviewed accounts had incomplete client information.
Six years later, an e-mail from a high-ranking HSBC employee noted that 15 percent of customers didn’t even have a file. “How do you locate clients when you have no file?” complained the executive.
G.E. Worst Bailout In U.S. History!
G.E. Worst Bailout In U.S. History!
It wasn’t until it was discovered that these accounts were being used to pay a U.S. company allegedly supplying aircraft to Mexican drug dealers that HSBC took action and even then it closed only some of the “Cayman Islands branch” accounts.
As late as 2012, when HSBC executives were being dragged before the U.S. Senate, the bank still had 20,000 such accounts worth some $670 million – and under oath would only say that the bank was “in the process” of closing them. Meanwhile, throughout all of this time, U.S. regulators kept examining HSBC.
In an absurdist pattern that would continue through the 2000s, OCC examiners would conduct annual reviews, find the same disturbing shit they’d found for years, and then write about the bank’s problems as though they were being discovered for the first time. From the 2006 annual OCC review:
“During the year, we identified a number of areas lacking consistent, vigilant adherence to BSA/AML policies. . . . Management responded positively and initiated steps to correct weaknesses and improve conformance with bank policy. We will validate corrective action in the next examination cycle.”
Translation: These guys are assholes, but they admit it, so it’s cool and we won’t do anything. madoff-handcuff-money
OCC Money Currency
A year later, on July 24th, 2007, OCC had this to say: “During the past year, examiners identified a number of common themes, in that businesses lacked consistent, vigilant adherence to BSA/AML policies.
Bank policies are acceptable. . . . Management continues to respond positively and initiated steps to improve conformance with bank policy.”
Translation: They’re still assholes, but we’ve alerted them to the problem and everything’ll be cool.
By then, HSBC’s lax money-laundering controls had infected virtually the entire company. Russians identifying themselves as used-car salesmen were at one point depositing $500,000 a day into HSBC, mainly through a bent traveler’s-checks operation in Japan.
The company’s special banking program for foreign embassies was so completely fucked that it had suspicious-activity­ alerts backed up by the thousands. There is also strong evidence that the bank was allowing clients in Sudan, Cuba, Burma and North Korea to evade sanctions.
When one of the company’s compliance chiefs, Carolyn Wind, raised concerns that she didn’t have enough staff to monitor suspicious activities at a board meeting in 2007, she was fired.
The sheer balls it took for the bank to ignore its compliance executives and continue taking money from so many different shady sources­ while ostensibly it had regulators swarming­ all over its every move is incredible.
“You can’t make up more egregious money-laundering that permeated an entire institution,” says Spitzer.
By the late 2000s, other law enforcement agencies were beginning to catch HSBC’s scent. The Department of Homeland Security started investigating HSBC for laundering drug money, while the attorney general’s office in West Virginia snooped around HSBC’s involvement in a Medicare-fraud case. A federal intra-agency meeting was convened in Washington in September 2009, at which it was determined that HSBC was out of control and needed to be investigated more closely.
The bank itself was then notified that its usual OCC review was being “expanded.” More OCC staff was assigned to pore through HSBC’s books, and, among other things, they found a backlog of 17,000 alerts of suspicious activity that had not been processed. They also noted that the bank had a similar pileup of subpoenas in money-laundering cases. Finally it seemed the government was on the verge of becoming genuinely pissed off.
In March 2010, after seeing countless ultimatums ignored, they issued one more, giving HSBC three months to clear that ***damned 17,000-alert backlog or else there would be serious consequences.
HSBC met that deadline, but months later the OCC again found the bank’s money-laundering controls seriously wanting, forcing the government to take, well . . . drastic action, right? Sort of! In October 2010, the OCC took a deep breath, strapped on its big-boy pants and . . . issued a second cease-and-desist order!
In other words, it was “Don’t Do It Again” – again.
The punishment for all of that dastardly defiance was to bring the regulatory process right back to the same kind of double-secret-probation­ order they’d tried in 2003. Not to say that HSBC didn’t make changes after the second Don’t Do It Again order. It did – it hired some people.
In the summer of 2010, 25-year-old Everett Stern was just out of business school, fighting a mild case of wanderlust and looking for a job but also for adventure. His dream was to be a CIA agent, battling bad guys and snatching up Middle Eastern terrorists. He applied to the agency’s clandestine service, had an interview even, but just before graduation, the bespectacled, youthfully exuberant Stern was turned down.
He was crushed, but then he found an online job posting that piqued his interest. HSBC, a major international bank, was looking for people to help with its anti-money-laundering program. “I thought this was exactly what I wanted to do,” he says. “It sounded so exciting.” Stern went up to HSBC’s offices in New Castle, Delaware, for an interview, and that October, just days after the OCC issued the second Don’t Do It Again letter, he started work as part of HSBC’s “expanded” anti­money-laundering program.
From the outset, Stern knew there was something weird about his job. “I had to go to the library to take out books on money-laundering,” Stern says now, laughing. “That’s how bad it was.” There were no training courses or seminars on money-laundering­ – what it was, how to detect it. His work mainly consisted of looking up the names of unsavory characters on the Internet and then running them through the bank’s internal systems to see if they popped up on any account names anywhere.
Even weirder, nobody seemed to care if anybody was doing any actual work. The Delaware office was mostly empty for a long while, just a giant unpainted room with a few hastily arranged cubicles and only a dozen or so people in it, and nobody really watching any of the workers. Stern and a fellow co-worker­ would routinely finish all their work by 10:30 in the morning, then spend a few hours throwing rocks into a quarry located behind the bank offices.
Then they would go back to their cubicles and hang out until 3 p.m. or so, or until it was at least plausible that they’d put in a real workday. “If we asked for any more work,” Stern says, “they got angry.”

Stern earned a starting salary of $54,900.
  1. Soon enough, though, out of boredom and also maybe a little bit of patriotism, Stern started to sift through some of the backlogged alerts and tried to make sense of them.
  2. Almost immediately, he found a series of deeply concerning transactions. There was an exchange company wiring large sums of money to untraceable destinations in the Middle East.
  3. A Saudi fruit company was sending millions, Stern found with a simple Internet search, to a high-ranking figure in the Yemeni wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.

  7. Stern even learned that HSBC was allowing millions of dollars to be moved from the Karaiba chain of super­markets in Africa to a firm called Tajco, run by the Tajideen brothers, who had been singled out by the Treasury Department as major financiers of Hezbollah.

  11. Every time Stern brought one of these discoveries to his bosses, they rolled their eyes at him, if not worse.
  12. When he alerted his boss that a shipping company with ties to Iran was doing a lot of business with the bank, he blew up. “You called me over for this?” the boss snapped.
educated borrowers Soon after, the empty office started to fill up. What HSBC did in the way of hiring new staff was actually pretty clever. It liqui­dated its credit-card-collections unit and moved the bulk of the employees over to the anti-money-laundering department.
Again, without really training anyone at all, it put hundreds of loud, gum-chewing, mostly uneducated, occasionally rowdy call-center workers on a new gig, turning them into money-laundering investigators.
Stern says his co-workers not only sucked at their jobs, they didn’t even know what their jobs were.
“You could walk into that building today,” he says, “and ask anyone there what money­laundering is – and I guarantee you, no one will know.”
When something fishy pops up in connection with a bank account, the bank generates an alert. An alert can be birthed by almost anything, from someone wiring $9,999 (to keep under the $10K reporting level) to someone wiring large sums in round numbers to someone else opening an account with a phony-sounding name or address.
When an alert gets generated, the bank is supposed to promptly investigate the matter. If the bank doesn’t clear the alert, it creates a “Suspicious Activity Report,” which is handed over to the Treasury Department to be investigated. Stern then found himself in the middle of a perverse sort-of anti­compliance mechanism.
HSBC had “complied” with the government’s Don’t Do It Again, Again order by hiring hundreds of bodies whom it turned into an army for whitewashing suspicious transactions. Remember, the complaint against HSBC was not so much that it had specifically allowed terrorist or drug money through, but that it had allowed suspicious accounts to pile up without being checked.
The boss at Stern’s Delaware office gave his new team goals:
  • Everyone was to try to clear 72 alerts a week.
  • For those of you keeping score at home, that’s nearly two alerts investigated and cleared every hour.
  • According to Stern, almost any kind of information was good enough to clear an alert.
“Basically, if a company had a website, you could clear them,” he says.
Soon enough, HSBC’s compliance executives were circulating cheery e-mails. “Great job by some Delaware professionals in the early part of the week,” wrote Stern’s boss on June 30th, 2011. The e-mail was subject-lined, “The 60-plus crowd,” signifying accolades to employees who had cleared more than 60 suspicious transactions that week. whistleblower5


After trying in vain to convince his bosses to at least let him do his job and look for money-laundering, Sterndecided to turn whistle-blower, telling the FBI and other agencies what was going on at the bank. He left work at HSBC in 2011, fully expecting that the government would drop the hammer on his former employers. By that time, numerous agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, had crawled all the way up HSBC’s backside, among other things examining it as part of a major international narcotics investigation.
  1. In one four-year period between 2006 and 2009, an astonishing $200 trillion in wire transfers (including from high-risk countries like Mexico) went through without any monitoring at all.
  2. The bank also failed to do due diligence on the purchase of an incredible $9 billion in physical U.S. dollars from Mexico and played a key role in the so-called Black Market Peso Exchange, which allowed drug cartels in both Mexico and Colombia to convert U.S. dollars from drug sales into pesos to be used back home.
  3. Drug agents discovered that dealers in Mexico were building special cash boxes to fit the precise dimensions of HSBC teller windows.
Former bailout inspector and federal prosecutor Neil Barofsky, who has helped secure numerous foreign money-laundering indictments, points out that the people HSBC was doing business with, like Colombia’s Norte del Valle and Mexico’s Sinaloa cartels, were “the worst trafficking organizations imaginable” – groups that don’t just commit murder on a mass scale but are known for beheadings, torture videos (“the new thing now,” he says) and other atrocities, none of which happens without money launderers.
Mexican Drug War.
Mexican Drug War.
It’s for this reason, Barofsky says, that drug prosecutors are not shy about dropping heavy prison sentences on launderers. “Frankly, our view of money-laundering was that it was on par with, and as significant as, the traffickers themselves,” he says. Barofsky was involved in the first extradition of a Colombian national (Pablo Trujillo, a member of the same cartel that HSBC moved money for) on money­laundering charges.
“That guy got 10 years,” says Barofsky. “HSBC was doing the same thing, only on a much larger scale than my schmuck was doing.”
Clearly, HSBC had violated the 2010 Don’t Do It Again, Again order. Everett Stern saw it with his own eyes; so did the OCC and the U.S. Senate, whose Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations decided to target the company for a yearlong investigation into global money-laundering. The bank itself, in response to the Senate investigation, acknowledged that it had “sometimes failed to meet the standards that regulators and customers expect.” It would later go on to say that it was even “profoundly sorry.”

He’s A Fraud.
A few days after Thanksgiving 2012, Stern heard that the Justice Department was about to announce a settlement. Since he’d left HSBC the year before,­ he’d had a rough time. Going public with his allegations had left him emotionally and financially devastated. He’d been unable to find a job, and at one point even applied for welfare.
But now that the feds were finally about to drop the hammer on HSBC, he figured he’d have the satisfaction of knowing that his sacrifice had been worthwhile. So he went to New York and sat in a hotel room, waiting for reporters to call for his comments. When he heard the news that the “punishment” Breuer had announced was a deferred prosecution agreement – a Don’t Do It Again, Again, Again agreement, if you will – he was flabbergasted.
“I thought, ‘All that, for nothing?’ ” he says. “I couldn’t believe it.”
The writer Ambrose Bierce once said there’s only one thing in the world worse than a clarinet: two clarinets. In the same vein, there’s only one thing worse than a totally corrupt bank: many corrupt banks.

If the HSBC deal showed how much dastardly crap the state could tolerate from one bank, Breuer was back a week later to show that the government would go just as easy on banks that team up with other banks to perpetrate even bigger scandals. On December 19th, 2012, he announced that the Justice Department was essentially letting Swiss banking giant UBS off the hook for its part in what is likely the biggest financial scam of all time.

The so-called LIBOR scandal, which is at the heart of the UBS settlement, makes Enron look like a parking violation. Many of the world’s biggest banks, including Switzerland’s UBS, Britain’s Barclays and the Royal Bank of Scotland, got together and secretly conspired to manipulate the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, which measures the rate at which banks lend to each other. Many, if not most, interest rates are pegged to LIBOR. The prices of hundreds of trillions of dollars of financial products are tied to LIBOR, everything from commercial loans to credit cards to mortgages to municipal bonds to swaps and currencies. libor
If you can imagine executives at Ford, GM, Mitsubishi, BMW and Mercedes getting together every morning to fix the prices of aluminum and stainless steel, you have a rough idea of what the LIBOR scandal is like, except that in the car-company analogy, you’d be dealing with absurdly smaller numbers. These are the world’s biggest banks getting together every morning to essentially fix the price of money. Low LIBOR rates are an indicator that banks are strong and healthy. These banks were faking the results of their daily physicals. In banking terms, they were juicing.
Silver 5Xs More Rare Than Gold
Silver 5Xs More Rare Than Gold
Two different types of manipulation took place. In 2008, during the heat of the global crash, banks artificially submitted low rates in order to present an image of financial soundness to the markets. But at other times over the course of years, individual traders schemed to move rates up or down in order to profit on individual trades.
There is nobody anywhere growing weed strong enough to help the human mind grasp the enormity of this crime. It’s a conspiracy so massive that the lawyers who are suing the banks are having an extremely difficult time figuring out how to calculate the damage.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Every morning, 16 of the world’s largest banks submit numbers to a London ­based panel indicating what interest rates they’re charging other banks to borrow money and what they themselves are charged.
  2. The LIBOR panel then takes those 16 different interest rates, tosses out the four highest and the four lowest, and averages out the remaining eight to create that day’s LIBOR rates – the basis for interest rates almost everywhere in the world.
  3. The fact that the LIBOR panel tosses out the four highest and lowest numbers every day is an important detail, because it means that it is difficult to artificially influence the final rate unless multiple banks are conspiring with each other.
  4. One bank lying its ass off and reporting that banks are lending money to each other basically for free doesn’t move the needle much.
  5. To really be sure you’re creating an artificially low or high interest rate, you need a bunch of banks on board – and it turns out that they were.
  6. For perhaps as far back as 20 years, banks have been submitting phony numbers, often in concert with other banks.
  7. They did it for a variety of reasons, but the big one, typically, is that a bank trader is holding some investment tied to LIBOR – bundles of currencies, municipal bonds, mortgages, whatever – that would earn more money if the interest rate was lower.
  8. So what would happen is, some schmuck trader at Bank X would call the LIBOR submitter and offer him cash, booze, a blow job or just a pat on the back to get him to submit a fake number that day.
United Kingdom's Barclay ~ At The Center Of NWO Banker's Scandal.
United Kingdom’s Barclay ~ At The Center Of NWO Banker’s Scandal.
  1. The scandal first blew up last year when the British megabank Barclays admitted to its part in the fixing of LIBOR rates.
  2. British regulators released a cache of disgusting e-mails showing traders from many different banks cheerfully monkeying around with your credit-card bills, your mortgage rates, your tax bill, your IRA account, etc., so that they could make out better on some sordid trade they had on that day.
  3. In one case, a trader from an unnamed bank sent an e-mail to a Barclays trader thanking him for helping to fix interest rates and promising a kickass bottle of bubbly for his efforts:
“Dude. I owe you big time! Come over one day after work, and I’m opening a bottle of Bollinger.”
  1. UBS was the next bank to confess, and its settlement – $1.5 billion in fines – was much the same, only the e-mails released were, if anything, more disgusting and damning.
  2. The British Financial Services Authority – equivalent to our SEC – discovered thousands of requests to fudge rates over a period of years involving dozens of different individuals and multiple banks.
  3. In many cases, the misdeeds were committed more or less openly, in writing, with traders and brokers baldly offering bribes in texts and e-mails with an obvious unconcern for punishment that later, sadly, proved justified.
  4. “I will fucking do one humongous deal with you,” begged one UBS trader who wanted a broker to fix the rate. “I’ll pay, you know, $50,000, $100,000.”
British regulators aren’t hiding the size of the scandal. The UBS settlement demonstrated, without a doubt, that the LIBOR scandal involved more than just one or two banks, and probably involved hundreds of people at many of the world’s largest and most prestigious financial institutions – in other words, a truly epic case of anti-competitive collusion that called into question whether the world’s biggest banks are innovating a new, not-entirely capitalist form of high finance.
“We have said there are five further institutions under investigation,” says Christopher Hamilton of the FSA. “And there is a large number of individuals as well.”
(At press time, another bank, the Royal Bank of Scotland, also settled for LIBOR-related offenses.) This dovetailed with what Bob Diamond, the former head of Barclays, told the British Parliament the day after he stepped down last year.
“There is an industrywide problem coming out now,” he said. Michael Hausfeld, a famed class-action lawyer who is suing the banks over LIBOR on behalf of cities like Baltimore whose investments lost money when interest rates were lowered, says the public still hasn’t grasped the importance of comments like Diamond’s. “Diamond essentially said, ‘This is an industrywide problem,’” Hausfeld says. “But nobody has defined what this is yet.”

OBAMA COMMUNISM rothschildism
Hausfeld’s point – that Diamond’s “industry wide problem” might be more than just a few guys messing with rates; it could be a systemic effort to pervert capitalism itself – underscores the extreme miscalculation of both recent no-prosecution deals.
  1. At HSBC, the bank did more than avert its eyes to a few shady transactions.
  2. It repeatedly defied government orders as it made a conscious, years-long effort to completely stop discriminating between illegitimate and legitimate money.
  3. And when it somehow talked the U.S. government into crafting a settlement over these offenses with the lunatic aim of preserving the bank’s license, it succeeded, finally, in making crime mainstream.
Rothschild Banking Mafia Developed Keynesian Economic To Swindle!

UBS, meanwhile, was a similarly elemental case, in which the offenses­ didn’t just violate the letter of the law – they threatened the integrity of the competitive system. If you’re going to let hundreds of boozed-up bankers spend every morning sending goofball e-mails to each other, giving each other super­hero nicknames while they rigged the cost of money (spelling-challenged UBS traders dubbed themselves, among other things, “captain caos,” the “three muscateers” and “Superman”), you might as well give up on capitalism entirely and just declare the 16 biggest banks in the world the International Bureau of Prices.

Thus, in the space of just a few weeks, regulators in Britain and America teamed up to declare near-total surrender to both crime and monopoly. This was more than a couple of cases of letting rich guys walk. These were major policy decisions that will reverberate for the next generation. Even worse than the actual settlements was the explanation Breuer offered for them.
“In the world today of large institutions, where much of the financial world is based on confidence,” he said, “a right resolution is to ensure that counter-parties don’t flee an institution, that jobs are not lost, that there’s not some world economic event that’s disproportionate to the resolution we want.”
In other words, Breuer is saying the banks have us by the balls, that the social cost of putting their executives in jail might end up being larger than the cost of letting them get away with, well, anything. bullshit1 This is bullshit, and exactly the opposite of the truth, but it’s what our current government believes. From Jon Benet to O.J. to Robert Blake, Americans have long understood that the rich get good lawyers and get off, while the poor suck eggs and do time. But this is something different. This is the government admitting to being afraid to prosecute the very powerful – something it never did even in the heydays of Al Capone or Pablo Escobar, something it didn’t do even with Richard Nixon. And when you admit that some people are too important to prosecute, it’s just a few short steps to the obvious corollary – that everybody else is unimportant enough to jail. Washington_Crossing_the_Delaware

Breaking news, Real IRA Dublin, Alan Ryan murder, Dublin gangs, Dublin shooting, Drug dealers, Sinn Fein, Continuity IRA, alan ryan funeral

Breaking news, Real IRA Dublin, Alan Ryan murder, Dublin gangs, Dublin shooting, Drug dealers, Sinn Fein, Continuity IRA, alan ryan funeral

Latest news: 9.45am/6/9/2012: THERE will be a massive armed garda presence for the paramilitary funeral of Real IRA terror boss Alan Ryan which will take place in his native Donaghmede in north Dublin on Saturday.

The body of murder victim Ryan (32) is expected to be released to his family tomorrow morning for a wake in his family home at Grange Abbey Drive. 

Ryan will be buried after a 10am funeral mass at the Holy Trinity Church in Donaghmede. 
Leading dissident Republicans from both sides of the border are expected to attend the event which will be closely watched by members of the garda Special Detective Unit. 

A source said: “This will be the biggest IRA funeral in the Republic for many years Tensions are very high at the moment and there is a very real expectation that there will be revenge attacks in the days after Ryan's funeral.” 

Yesterday hooded men placed Tricolours and black flags on the lamp-posts all around Grange Abbey. 

At the home of the terror boss, a massive Tricolour flies from an upstairs window of the house, while another Tricolour and a black flag hanging on a pole outside. 

At nearby Grange Lodge Avenue, where Ryan was gunned down on Monday, a large slogan saying Alan Ryan RIP IRA has been painted on a wall. 

Floral tributes and candles also mark the spot. 

In a statement, the Dublin branch of the 32 County Sovereignty Movement said: “Alan was black and white, straight to the point and never silent within the republican movement when problems arose. 

“Alan was not afraid of dying or even being murdered by either the Brits, the freestaters or the cowardly scum that took him away from us. 

“His only fear was that he would die in vain, let us stand together and make sure that he does not, let us move forward and fight on for what Alan stood for every living moment of his life.” 

Latest News: 10pm/4/9/2012: A Provisional IRA hit-man for hire is a key suspect in the murder of Alan Ryan, a senior member of Sinn Fein in Dublin has today been briefing journalists off-the-record that Alan Ryan was making money from drug dealing and racketeering and in effect excusing his murder. Continuity IRA had put a contract out on the two Ryan brothers.
As a senior member of Sinn Fein in Dublin describes Alan Ryan as a man who made his living off the proceeds of drugs and racketeering, the political wing of the REAL IRA the 32 County Sovereignty Movement has described Alan Ryan’s murder as cowardly.
“The 32 County Sovereignty Movement wishes to extend our heartfelt sympathy to the Ryan family following the cowardly murder of our friend, comrade and activist Alan Ryan. Alan was shot in the back in cold blood on the streets where he grew up, streets where he had worked tirelessly to tackle the scourge of drugs which he had always opposed with every fibre of his being. We cannot express in words the pain now felt by both the movement as a whole and individual activists now that he has been taken from us. Alan's murder does not mean the end of the cause for which he gave his life. Whether it was as an ex Republican prisoner campaigning for his comrades in Maghaberry, or as an anti-drugs activist protecting his community Alan set an example which will be followed. He will not be forgotten by his comrades who remain and who will carry on his legacy as resolutely as he did the legacy of others who fell before him”.

A MAN shot dead in a gangland style attack was regarded by gardaí as a leading member of one of the most dangerous crime gangs in the State and was also a member of the so-called Real IRA. Continuity IRA had put out a contract on Alan Ryan and his brother for their alleged role in the murder of a Continuity IRA member.

Alan Ryan (31) was shot at Grange Lodge Avenue, Clongriffin, north Dublin, close to his home when two gunmen opened fire on him and one of his associates yesterday just after 3.30pm. It was the first gangland killing since March.
The man he was with was wounded in the legs. However, his injuries are not said to be life-threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery.
The dead man lived at Grange Abbey Drive close to where he was shot and was well known to gardaí.
It is understood he was visiting family members at a house in the area and when he left that house he was ambushed on the street. A car carrying what gardaí believe were two gunmen pulled up and at least one of the passengers got out and started firing at Mr Ryan and the other man.
Mr Ryan was hit a number of times, including as he lay wounded on the ground. He was shot at least once in the head by the masked gunman, who then ran back to the waiting vehicle and was driven off at speed.
The victims were taken from the scene to nearby Beaumont Hospital, where Mr Ryan was pronounced dead a short time later. The other man was still in hospital last night.
Gardaí found a burnt-out car at Hole in the Wall Road in Donaghmede which the investigating team of detectives believe was used by the killers.
Mr Ryan was on bail awaiting serious criminal charges arising from an extortion racket he was involved in. He had threatened some pub owners in the city to close their premises and was accused of extorting money from others.
Mr Ryan was also linked to the private security sector and in recent years had control of contracts for the supply of security staff to some pubs and clubs in Dublin.
He and his Real IRA associates had also become involved in feuding with a number of major crime gangs from the city from whom they were trying to extort money. The Real IRA allowed drug dealers to deal drugs in their areas if they paid money to Alan Ryan and his associates.
They were embroiled in a feud with the major drug and armed robbery gang in Finglas once led by Martin “Marlo” Hyland, who was shot dead in 2006, and then led by Eamon Dunne (34), who was shot dead in a pub in Cabra in April 2010.
When drug dealer Sean Winters (41) was shot dead in Portmarnock, north Dublin, in September 2010, Mr Ryan and his associates emerged as the chief suspects.
Members of the gang were also suspected of having shot dead drugs gang leader Michael Kelly (30) in Coolock in September 2011.
In 1999,when he was aged 19 years, Mr Ryan was arrested at a Real IRA firearms training camp in Stamullen, Co Meath. He was one of three young men who were later convicted of receiving firearms training from three older republicans at a disused cellar in the ruins of Herbertstown House.
The derelict property was under surveillance by gardaí when the men arrived for training. Detectives found an assault rifle, a sub-machine gun and a semi-automatic pistol in the cellar.
All six were convicted at the Special Criminal Court in 2001, with Mr Ryan jailed for four years. While he had no convictions at the time of his arrest in 1999, he had been caught in possession of a loaded revolver at his home in September 1998 and was on bail awaiting trial when arrested at the Stamullen firearms training exercise.
By the time he was jailed for four years in relation to the Stamullen incident, he was already serving a three-year sentence for being caught with the gun in 1998. The sentences were ordered to run consecutively, meaning he was effectively jailed for seven years.
Sunday, July 29, 2012 Dublin Armed robberies, Dublin Real IRA, Dublin Crime, Gardai, Wheatfield Prison
Dublin Armed robberies, Dublin Real IRA, Dublin Crime, Gardai, Wheatfield Prison
Members of a Dublin Real IRA gang have been spotted watching cash-in-transit deliveries and the gang is known to have focused on a tiger-kidnapping opportunity. The gang which centres around a the  two Ryan brothers from Donaghmede were linked to a €40,000 robbery of a Dublin pub last month. A Cork-based gang were linked to a €140,000 at a petrol station ATM in Carrigaline in January as well as a robbery at Bank of Ireland in August 2011. The gang made their getaway in a car with a flashing blue light to make it look like an unmarked garda car.
One of the men suspected of involvement in the robbery is Niall 'Houdini' Fitzpatrick (42) who was described by gardai as one of the most notorious and dangerous armed robbers in Cork. The well-known criminal from Mayfield was nicknamed Houdini after escaping from custody on three occasions. He was sentenced to eight years for an armed robbery on Farran Post office in 2001. A gun was held to an employee's head during the terrifying incident. He also served time for ramming a garda car in 1999 and for burglary incidents.
While serving his sentence in Wheatfield Prison Fitzpatrick was a close associate of Limerick killer Dessie Dundon, Fitzpatrick worked on the paint party (painting walls and cells around the prison) and this gave him access to all areas of the prison where he supplied drugs and mobile phones to such noted scum-bags as convicted rapists Martin Dunne, Dunne is serving 15 years for a rape, Dunne had brought his nephew with him to commit the rape on the Dublin housewife. Dunne is due for release in a few months.
One of his associates linked to the Carrigaline robbery was also part of to the BOI raid. Another gang member has been linked to the robbery along with a previous Post Office robbery. There have been several serious robberies in recent weeks including Post Office robberies, business robberies and cash-in-tranist robberies.
One gang made off with €18,000 after smashing their way into a Post Office on Ormond Quay in Dublin in May.The gang made their way into an adjoining derelict building over a number of nights and broke through into the post office when staff came in to open up.
A number of other recent incidents have been linked to a Finglas armed robbery crew highlighted in the Sunday World last month. There are five core members of the gang led by a man from the Glenties Park area.
Gardai have had successes in jailing a number of serious armed robbers in recent times. Alan 'Fatpuss' Bradley and his brother Wayne were jailed earlier this year for conspiracy to commit robbery after gardai foiled a raid on a cash-in-transit van in Celbridge in 2007. Fatpuss and his brother had been linked to several other robberies in the past decade.
A serial armed robber from Wexford was jailed earlier this year after pleading guilty to four counts of armed robbery over a one month period in 2010. Gardai say they are determined to continue to put armed robbers behind bars and will heavily concentrate resources on curtailing their activities.
On Sunday the 3rd of October 2010 warned the public that Dissident terrorists were about to launch a bombing campaign from their strong holds in Donegal, north Monaghan and Louth. On Monday the 4th October 2010 Dissidents caused wide spread damage when they exploded a one hundred pound bomb in Derry. Yesterday the Gardai in County Louth made significant seizures of Dissident weapons and explosives. The public must remain vigilant; while the Gardai are to be congratulated on yesterday’s success the Dissidents remain determined to cause death and destruction in Northern Ireland and in England.
The Story so Far:
A “significant” dissident republican explosives dump and arms cache has been uncovered by anti-terror gardaí in county Louth.
An improvised mortar, three kilos of TNT, bomb-making equipment and a pipe bomb were found hidden in a wood in Co Louth.

The weapons haul included a general-purpose machine gun, a shotgun and assorted ammunition. The TNT explosives – a powerful explosive commonly used by the military and in mining – were found in the wooded area near Dunleer.
The finds were the second massive blow to suspected factions of the Real IRA in recent days and followed 10 arrests and separate searches over the weekend.
Garda Commissioner Fachtna Murphy said the discovery was “significant” and added: “This find represents a further step in our determined strategy to target, disrupt and detect the activities of dissident republicans.
“We continue to work closely with our colleagues in the Police Service of Northern Ireland and in the Security Service to thwart the intent of a small group of people who want to inflict violence and pain on communities.”
Justice Minister Dermot Ahern praised the work of detectives, saying: “This was a very significant find at a time when the threat from dissident groups poses dangers for law-abiding people.
“I want to congratulate An Garda Síochána for their detailed work in this area.”
A Garda spokesman said a series of raids were carried out yesterday morning in Co Louth, which straddles the border with Northern Ireland, and its neighbouring county Meath.
It is the second time this year that material for a suspected mortar bomb attack has been uncovered by authorities.
A device suspected of being made into a mortar was uncovered near Dundalk, Co Louth, in May.
The latest major operation, led by the anti-terror Special Detective Unit, followed 10 arrests and explosive seizures at the weekend in a wave of raids in Louth, Waterford and Wexford.
Bomb detonators and a small quantity of Semtex plastic explosive were seized.
Two men were charged in Dublin’s non-jury Special Criminal Court on Sunday night in connection with the anti-dissident operation.
Nicholas Kendall (aged 20) of Row Street, Wexford, was charged with unlawful possession of a semi-automatic pistol, ammunition and a bomb part.
Peter Butterly (aged 33,) of Cortown in Dunleer, Co Louth, was charged with being a member of the IRA.
The eight others included a 24-year-old woman and men aged from 19 to 71.
Coordinated Bombing Campaign Planned –
Dissident Terrorist groups have pooled their resources to carryout a coordinated bombing and shooting campaign this Autumn and Winter. The Dissident Terrorists will launch bomb attacks from their strong holds in the IrishRepublic, namely Donegal, north Monaghan and north Louth in the coming weeks and months. The Dissident Terrorists remain committed to carrying out a bombing campaign in England; this type of spectacular has traditionally been viewed as the life blood of Irish terrorism. Recent successes by the security services on the Island of Ireland have been a set back for the dissidents, however, these groups have been strengthened in recent months by further defections from the Provisional IRA and a significant number of new recruits who have been trained in weapons and explosives. The dissidents have also secured automatic weapons through their relationship with criminal gangs in Cork, Limerick and Dublin. Significant amounts of commercial explosives have not been secured by the dissidents and so they remain dependent on home made explosives.
It is essential that the public remain vigilant and that anyone with any information about the terrorists groups should provide that information to the Gardai or PSNI. It is essential that both the Gardai and the PSNI are given the resources necessary to monitor and where possible apprehend Dissident Terrorists. The border counties on both sides of the Irish border are going to be hot spots in the coming weeks and months for Dissident activity. Due to on going economic criminal activity by the dissident groups in the border areas (for example, smuggling) there is a significant tolerance level of their activity as many local people engage in the selling and buying of illegal goods.
Up Date 17th September 2010:
Four men from County Armagh have been arrested after customs officers seized almost 12,000 litres of suspected illegal fuel.
Police searched premises in west Belfast and dismantled a so-called huckster site that was selling cheap 'green' diesel.
In County Armagh, customs officers found underground storage tanks, containing 8,000 litres of laundered fuel.
There were five other premises searched in counties Monaghan, Roscommon, Meath and Galway.
Mike Connolly, Assistant Director, Specialist Investigations, HMRC said:
"The huckster site and filling stations we raided are operating at an unfair advantage over legitimate traders by selling fuel at a reduced rate.
"It is wrong that honest businesses should be undercut by criminals but our response is to ensure we are targeting those individuals and groups doing most economic harm in our communities.
"This is just one operation stopping the loss of millions of pounds of taxpayer's money - more will follow to dismantle organised criminal groups and their activities."
HM Revenue and Customs say investigations are continuing.
Dissidents, Provisional IRA and Drug Dealers team up to profit from criminality.
During the embryonic years of the ‘peace-process’ when Provisional IRA murders and other criminality were viewed as ‘internal-housekeeping’ by the British and Irish Governments entrepreneurial terrorists made fortunes. While the terrorists continue to make vast sums of money from open criminality, the Gardai can now pursue that criminality in a way that they could not as the Government tried and succeeded in corralling Sinn Fein into the democratic process. However, people who would continue to be viewed as PIRA members are continuing to make vast sums of money from criminality. These PIRA members who have not joined any ‘dissident’ group have now teamed up with ‘dissidents’ and other criminal gangs to maximize their profits. Dublin’s north inner city is now home to an alliance of some of Ireland’s most seasoned and ruthless terrorists and drug dealing criminals. On an almost daily basis these terrorists distribute drugs, illegal cigarettes, fuel, counterfeit CDs/DVDs while at the same time planning and carrying out armed robberies where and when possible.
While the Celtic Tiger roared around the country in October 2006 few even blinked at what was a significant Garda raid in the leafy suburb of Rathfarnham in Dublin. The Gardai raided a very fine house that was nestled among the manicured lawns and polished BMWs of the up market Rathfarnham suburb. The house with a market value of at least two million Euro at that time was not the home of a property speculator or banking executive, but was one of the many properties owned by the Officer Commanding the Provisional IRA in Dublin. The OC of the PIRA in Dublin was a close working associate of one of Dublin’s most notorious or now infamous criminals, Christy Griffin. In 2006 a feud had broken out in the north inner city of Dublin, after it emerged that Christy Griffin had been accused of raping his girlfriend’s daughter since she was a toddler.
When the Gardai searched this fine house they were looking for a stash of hand grenades that had been sent from the PIRA in Belfast to a PIRA member in Dublin who was heavily involved in the bloody feud surrounding Griffin. There had been two hand grenade attacks before the Gardai raid on the house, the grenades were traced back to similar devices that had been used in Belfast. During this period and for many years before, the IRA’s commanding officer in Dublin had been involved in large scale high-jackings from the lucrative DublinPort. The PIRA leader had inside men at DublinPort and these men would identify large shipments of high value goods that would be easy to dispose of on the black market; cigarettes were a particular favorite as they could be sold in the markets and pubs around Dublin. The IRA Commander and his drug dealing associates were making lots of money, and as early as 2001 the IRA Commander who had no visible means of income bought the house in Rathfarnham for 900,000 Euro. The IRA Commander also bought himself a holiday home in Wexford and this house was close to another house that had just been bought by his sister-in-law. His sister-in-law was living in Wexford with a former PIRA prisoner, all of the members of this closely net group where heavily involved with Sinn Fein.
While this criminal empire headed up by the PIRA Commander in Dublin and the Christy Griffin gang were allowed to operate without constraint as the peace process was finding its feet, their multi-million Euro robberies were starting to cause problems for both the Sinn Fein leadership and the Fianna Fail Governemnt who had lead them into democratic politics. The Gallahers cigarette company had informed the Irish Government that it could no longer transport its cigarettes through south Armagh or DublinPort due to the high number of PIRA high-jackings. The security services on both sides of the border felt that their hands were tied as any significant move against the IRA could not go ahead without political sanction. However, Michael Mc Dowell who was then Minister for Justice began to make public pronouncements that warned the Sinn Fein leadership that the honey-moon period was over and the State was going to take direct action against PIRA criminality. The Sinn Fein/IRA leadership was forced to close down its Dublin operation, the Provisional IRA Commander continued to maintain his business links with the drug dealers, but he was told that his association with the IRA would be denied if he ever appeared before a court for his criminal activity.
The Dublin PIRA was now able to get even more involved in the drugs trade as they had been disowned by the Sinn Fein/IRA leadership. By now Christy Griffin was charged, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for the rape of his girlfriend’s daughter. Christy had always been someone the PIRA could deny and deny they did, but for those of us who know the truth Christy Griffin was one of the PIRA’s best earners in Dublin. Christy Griffin had been paid hundreds of thousands of Euro by the PIRA in Dublin for his good works on their behalf. The PIRA Commanding officer in Dublin continued and continues to pay money into the Professional IRA/Sinn Fein organization, this money is laundered through a myriad of front businesses. As long as the PIRA in Dublin, along the border and in the north did not stretch their criminal activity to ‘political terrorism’ they could be certain that they could get away with murder and there would be no political sanction against Sinn Fein. The recent murder of 22 year old Paul Quinn in CountyMonaghan by members of the PIRA shows that their assessment is correct. By association people like drug dealer Christy Griffin enjoyed the fact that the Government were turning a blind eye to organized crime that was associated with the PIRA. Griffin and the IRA Commander in Dublin were career criminals, both had graduated from youthful theft to violent crime, they both enjoyed the terrorizing of innocent people or anyone who got in their way.
Christy Griffin involved many members of his extended family in his crimes. His nephew Colm Griffin was a member of his gang. Colm was an ad hoc intelligence officer who would be supplied with the details of Lorries carrying valuable goods and their movements, he would also receive information on banks and post offices that could be easily robbed and the PIRA would supply him with the guns to carry out those robberies. However, in May 2005 Colm Griffin and his associate Eric Hopkins were shot dead as they carried out an armed robbery of a post office in Lusk in north Dublin.
As the feud surrounding Christy Griffin intensified several people were murdered. Thomas ‘tomo’ Byrne was well known within the north inner city, a female relative had been assaulted by the PIRA Commanding Officer, Byrne retaliated by beating the PIRA Commanding Officer and was later shot dead for his act of defiance. The PIRA Commander believed that he had a license to murder and mutilate at will.
This feud had all started with the decision of a then 19 year old women to go to the Gardai and tell them that she had been raped by Christy Griffin from she was eight years old. This decision caused a split in the PIRA that had up until this point protected Christy Griffin and his associates. Those who supported Christy Griffin were simply trying to protect their sourse of income; those who opposed Christy Griffin were simply embarrassed because of their close association with Sinn Fein. The IRA Commander continues to enjoy the life of a wealthy businessman and uses legitimate businesses to launder money for his former PIRA comrades who continue to engage in full-time/front-line criminality including drug dealing. The PIRA Commander has been forced to pay The Criminal Assets Bureau 500,000 Euro but it has made little impact on his criminal earnings, some of which still makes its way to Sinn Fein.
At its height the Christy Griffin feud claimed several lives including Stephen Ledden who was an innocent by-stander in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Gardai have managed to maintain a presence in the hot spots that have been central to the Griffin feud and this has reduced the feud to a smoldering cheek by jowl fist fight. The north inner city remains a dangerous place, yet it also remains a place where a great deal of money can still be made from drug dealing, cigarette smuggling and so forth. Now in 2010 the entrepreneurs among the criminal gangs including the PIRA, dissidents and the traditional drug dealers have joined forces to maximize profits. The PIRA members still manage to siphon off some money to Sinn Fein but keep the bulk for their own luxury; the dissidents are pure criminals who can satisfy their leadership by occasionally getting access to semi-automatic weapons that come in with drug shipments. The drug dealers continue to enjoy licensed protection from the various terrorist groupings. This pattern is being repeated in Limerick, Cork and many other urban centers around the country, however, Dublin remains the real money maker for all concerned.


Following the Magnitsky Money


Published on Sunday, 12 August 2012 16:09

This dilapidated house in Chisinau, the capital of the Republic of Moldova, is the headquarters of Bunicon-Impex SRL a phantom company that received and sent on money from the huge heist discovered by Magnitsky















Novaya Gazeta story (in Russian)

As Russian tax lawyer Sergei Magnitsky slowly died in a Russian prison from abuse and neglect, US$230 million (5.4 billion Russian Rubles) in taxes stolen from his client disappeared into a maze of phantom companies, crooked banks and offshore accounts.  Magnitsky, accused of the largest tax scam in Russian state history despite being the whistleblower who reported it, knew who pulled off the theft but not who the powerful people behind them were.

 He died rather than admit to a crime he didn’t do. Magnitsky was the loser.  But the winners until now have not been identified. Reporters from the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), Barron's and Novaya Gazeta, spent months tracking banking records and offshores companies to identify two beneficiaries of the deal: businesses of a Russian state transportation official’s son and the ex-husband of a tax official who granted the refunds.

 The Money Flow

 The scam began with a Russian police raid on the offices of Magnitsky’s client:  Hermitage Capital Management investment fund. People impersonating company employees then used official stamps and documents seized in the raid and pled guilty to various crimes. The company was fined amounts that offset the company’s earnings for the year, and the impersonators then filed for a giant tax refund.

 Three phantom businesses, shell companies that exist only on paper, applied at Moscow tax offices #28 and #25 on behalf of Hermitage for a refund which was instantly granted.  Magnitsky, who reported the fraud, believed wrongly that if officials only knew what was happening they would react. They reacted by imprisoning him for tax evasion, demanding he write a confession, denying him medical care and beating him repeatedly. He lasted one year dying in 2009.

 In 2009 and 2011, secret trials in Moscow’s Tverskoy District Court fixed legal blame for what was a massive, arcane scam on two low-level ex-convicts: sawmill worker Viktor Markelov, once found guilty of manslaughter, and a robber,– Vyacheslav Khlebnikov.

 Both pled guilty. Both got minimum sentences of five years in a correctional colony. They were not even ordered to pay back the stolen money. Irina Dudukina, a spokeswoman for the Investigative Department of the Russian police, announced to the public that it was impossible to find the refund money because documents of the Moscow bank UBS were burned up in a truck crash. She had no details on when or where this crash occurred or why the documents were in a truck. And she didn’t specify why investigators didn’t try to get the same documents from the Russian Central Bank, which had copies of many of the transactions.

 No government executive or bureaucrat involved in the deals that sparked the rebate, in the illicit tax refund, or in Magnitsky’s death has ever been charged with anything.

 A government investigation concluded that the tax officials who handed out the rebates had been tricked by fraudsters, so it was not their fault.

 Tracking the Money



Banking records of the three companies that got the illegal tax refund -- Makhaon, Parfenion and Rilend -- show that the stolen money dissipated into phantom companies through thousands of banking transactions. Soon after these transactions, the three companies dissolved. Phantom companies fronted by proxy shareholders and directors designed to hide the real owners, made certain for years that who really was benefitting from the huge heist remained a secret.

 OCCRP reporters worked out a money trail that Russian officials were either unable or unwilling to follow.

 In January and the beginning of February 2008, for example, Parfenion wired $63 million USD to the bank accounts of two phantom companies: ZhK and Fausta .  Another transaction took place directly where Fausta sent $21 million USD to ZhK’s accounts.

 ZhK, which received in total about $39 million USD, was established in November 2003, by Marta Dmitrieva of Moscow. Dmitrieva told OCCRP reporters that while, yes, she did file documents with the tax office, she knew nothing of ZhK.

 “I have never been a shareholder or director of the company,” she said. “I didn’t have a job, and I found an Internet commercial that said there was a possibility to work as courier and applicant for different companies.”

 The sole shareholder of ZhK was Anatoly Dvoinikov from the village of Poselki in the Penzenskaya region, 640 kilometers from Moscow. Court records OCCRP reviewed show that Dvoinikov is likely a proxy shareholder and the director of many phantom companies.

 In November 2008, ZhK was folded into a new commercial entity along with two other companies. The address of this new corporate creation was in Vladivostok in the Russian Far East, more than 6,400 kilometers from Moscow.

 Russian organized crime commonly uses the tactic of reorganizing companies to cover up fraud.

 Fausta, the other company that got money from Parfenion – about $45 million USD -- was registered in July 2007by Sergey Kirillov from Moscow.  Kirillov told OCCRP he did not establish the company.

 “I don’t know anything about this company,” he said. “Nobody asked me to establish it. Maybe some people got my passport details from banks where I took loans.”

 In March 2008, just a month after getting the Parfenion millions, Fausta was dissolved, according to the Russian Tax Service.  Fausta's banking records show that the money went from its bank account into the bank account of Univers another Moscow company.

 Univers was registered in October 2007 with Natalya Senchukova listed as the sole shareholder and director. The Russian state commercial registry lists her as a shareholder in more than 30 companies and she is likely another proxy.

 In November 2008, Univers was reorganized too in much the way ZhK had been. It was folded in with another company and the headquarters also were moved from Moscow to Vladivostok.

 OCCRP has obtained documents showing that the same registration agents reorganized both Univers and ZhK.

 Univers received money from Rilend and Makhaon, too. But bank records show that these transactions were made not directly, but through an intermediary company, called Anika.

 From the accounts of Univers and ZhK in Sberbank, the largest state-owned bank in Russia, and in Mosstroyeconombank, a small Moscow bank, money went into what is called a “correspondent bank account” held by tiny Krainiy Sever bank in one of Russia's biggest banks, Alfa Bank. Small banks commonly keep correspondent accounts within large banks so that they can more easily make foreign money transfers.

 From Feb. 5-13, 2008, $33 million poured into to Krainiy Sever’s correspondent account from Univers and ZhK. OCCRP has obtained court documents from cases unrelated to the Magnitsky case which indicates that this account has been a major recipient of money stolen from the Russian budget. Court decisions mention a number of phantom companies (including Starmiks, Optimtorg) which wired money to this account. (Doc1Doc2Doc3,Doc4Doc5).

 Police files OCCRP has obtained also mention many of these companies including ZhK, Univers, Starmiks, Optimtorg, as phantom firms used to launder money stolen from the Russian budget in December 2007.

 The Krainiy Sever account was used as a kind of “border point” from which money flowed to companies registered abroad.

 On Feb. 13, 2008, a Russian court ordered that account seized and a month later the Central Bank of the Russian Federation cancelled Krainiy Sever’s banking license for violation of the law “to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism”.

 In a press release the Central Bank said that Krainiy Sever managers had lost control of their Moscow subsidiary. Court records show that during two weeks in February of 2008, bank clients, mostly phantom companies, suspiciously wired $300 million into bank accounts in Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Cyprus belonging to companies from the United KingdomBritish Virgin Islands (BVI) and Belize .

 OCCRP got in touch with an ex-police officer who investigated money laundering proceeds in Krainiy Sever.

 “When we raided the Moscow office of the bank, we met a guy there with a laptop from which he wired billions of rubles to different countries through the Internet. The guy was crying that he is from the FSB [Federal Security Service, the main secret service in Russia] and promised us a lot of problems”, said a former law enforcement officer who asked that his name not be mentioned for fear of retribution.

Vladlen Stepanov

 Two phantom companies from Moldova, on the eastern border of the European Union, were among the foreign recipients of money from Krainiy Sever.  Bunicon-Impex SRL and Elenast-Com SRL had accounts in Banca de Economii in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova.  OCCRP obtained banking records of these two companies which show they received $52 million from Feb. 4-13 from the Krainiy Sever account where the Magnitsky money had gone. The last transaction was on the day the account was seized by Russian authorities.  Almost all of their other transactions were also from Russia.  Money came into the two companies as rubles and went out in dollars to dozens of companies located in different countries.

 A third recipient of Magnitsky funds was Nomirex Trading Ltd. even though it was listed in United Kingdom records at the time as inactive.  Nomirex and Bunicon are known to be part of an interconnected laundering network, dubbed the Proxy Platform by OCCRP, which has been used by Mexican drug cartels, Vietnamese, Russian and Moldovan organized crime and others. (see Sidebar: Russian Laundering Machine).

 On Feb. 4, 2008, Bunicon received rubles from the Krainiy Sever account and the same day converted it into $4.5 million USD. The next day, $726,000 was wired to Nomirex through its bank account with the Latvian Trasta Komercbanka.

 The day after Nomirex got the money from Moldova, it wired $1.9 million to Quartell Trading Ltd in the British Virgin Islands. Swiss prosecutors are investigating Quartell based on a Money Laundering Suspicion Report that Hermitage filed with Swiss Attorney General Erwin Beyeler. Quartell transferred the money it received from Russia to Baikonur Worldwide Ltd from BVI. And it in turn wired it to a Cyprus company, Arivust Holdings Ltd, which had a bank account at Credit Suisse.


Olga Stepanova was the head of Moscow tax office #28, when it approved the fraudulent tax return. Her whereabouts are now unknown

 What stands out in this dizzying movement of money is this:
Arivust is controlled by Vladlen Stepanov, the ex-husband of Olga Stepanova, who was the head of Moscow tax office #28, when it approved the fraudulent tax return.

 A bank statement for her ex-husband’s firm indicates that money that came into the account was spent on luxury property in Dubai.  Stepanov has long maintained that he earned the money in his accounts and that he had nothing to do with the tax refund theft. He even sued political activist Alexey Navalny for reposting a Hermitage video that alleged he benefited from the Magnitsky money.  Stepanov won that case. However, the wire transfers show that money did come directly from the Magnitsky money. Meanwhile, Olga Stepanov’s whereabouts and what happened to her after the refunds are unknown.

 A Credit Suisse banking statement pinpoints the same accounts as the source of payments made for property in Dubai for Elena Anisimova and Olga Tsareva, Stepanova’s deputies in the Moscow tax office.

 According to the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) Anisimova and Tsareva left Russia in 2011 in the same car and have not been located.

 “Stepanov had the possibility to explain it away because there was a gap in the money flow,” said a Hermitage representative who asked that their name not be used.  “Nobody could prove the origin of the money he had received on his accounts. Today, after banking records from Russia and Moldova became public, the chain has become direct. Now it is obvious that money which Stepanov received on his accounts had been stolen from the budget.”

Stepanov refused to comment on the OCCRP findings.

 Denis Katsyv



  Denis Katsyv the owner of Prevezon Holding is the son of Petr Katsyv, the wealthy and powerful former minister of transportation in the Moscow region

Another company which received Russian money from Moldova is Prevezon Holdings Ltd owned by Denis Katsyv, the son of Petr Katsyv, the wealthy and powerful former minister of transportation in the Moscow region.  Petr Katsyv is considered one of the wealthiest civil servants in Russia. According to Forbes Magazine he is worth more than $4 million in 2012, and real estate records OCCRP obtained show the son is worth far more.  In 2012 the father left his ministerial post to head the General Department of Moscow Region for Cooperation with Federal Authorities.

 On Feb. 5, 2008, Bunicon received rubles equivalent to $9.4 million USD in 2008 exchange rates in two transactions from the correspondent account of the Krainiy Sever bank. The next day Bunicon sent $410,000 to Prevezon’s account at the Swiss bank UBS AG.

 On Feb. 13, 2008, Elenast received the equivalent of $800,000 USD from the same correspondent account, and transferred more than half of that amount to Prevezon.

 Records from the Cyprus commercial registry show Prevezon Holdings Ltd was registered in 2005 and is owned by Denis Katsyv (1000 shares) and a company called Martash Investment Holdings Ltd from the British Virgin Islands (1 share). Martash Investments is also owned by Denis Katsyv.

 Denis Katsyv told OCCRP that his company never dealt with any companies from Moldova.

 “I am really surprised to hear that,” he said. “I give you 200 percent that it is impossible. I am ready to help you in your investigation and show the banking statement of Prevezon to prove that it never received such money.”

Katsyv never showed the statement.  Instead he called reporters and said he became shareholder in Prevezon only in April 2009 and had nothing to do with any Moldovan money.  Records from the Cyprus commercial registry show Katsyv actually became a shareholder in June 2008, a few months after the transfers.  Prevezon’s sole shareholder at the time of the transfers, Timofey Krit, is Katysv’s current business partner and the director of Prevezon.

 Other Problems

 This is not the first time the Katsyv family has run afoul of the law. In 2010, the Katsyv family was mentioned in a money-laundering case of Israeli bank Hapoalim which was investigated by Israeli authorities.

 According to court records OCCRP obtained, millions of dollars were transferred through Katsyv-controlled accounts at the bank.  Israeli prosecutors insisted that bank managers concealed the real beneficiaries of this accounts in violation of anti-money-laundering rules. But their lawyers blamed Katsyv’s business for the bank’s problems. The court eventually agreed and found the bank managers not guilty.

 According to the judgment, Katsyv’s company Martash Investment had to sign a secret agreement with the Israeli government to avoid indictment.

“If the clients of the bank [Katsyv family] had denied signing the agreement, they would have faced charges and an indictment. The situation described by the lawyer [for Hapoalim managers] leads to the conclusion that the clients of the bank, who are the main culprits, apparently bought their freedom for money,” the final ruling in the case says.

 New York Properties

 The Katsyv family owns more than $17 million in New York real estate alone despite a new US law that says those who benefited from the Magnitsky case cannot enter the country.

 On Nov. 12, 2009, the Katsyv-owned Prevezon Holdings Ltd registered itself as a foreign business corporation in Brooklyn and on Nov. 30 that year Katsyv’s company set up a US business. Two weeks later it signed a deed on a condominium at Pine Street in Manhattan, for $829,000. The same day Prevezon Holding Ltd signed another deed and bought a second condo in the building for $1.2 million. Alexander Litvak, director of Prevezon Holdings Ltd, signed both deeds. 

Leviev's group of companies, Africa Israel-AFI, opened shopping malls all over the world. AFI Palace is the biggest shopping mall in Romania.


The New York State Division of Corporations lists seven companies with names similar to Prevezon Holding Ltd that together own more than $17 million in New York real estate. Property records show that all the similarly named companies are affiliated with the same directors and managers, including Litvak and Krit, current director of Cyprus-based Prevezon. Some also own other New York City properties including five units in a luxury condominium complex at 20 Pine Street in the heart of Wall Street. A number of these are currently for sale for between $1 and $2 million each.

 Katsyv’s businesses are closely tied to another controversial figure: Russian oligarch Lev Leviev.  Leviev and Katsyv’s businesses often trade assets. (see Leviev story)

While the money trail leads to Stepanov and Katsyv, they are not the only persons involved with the Magnitsky money.  The whereabouts of hundreds of millions of dollars still missing lie unlocked in other banking records that are still to be checked.


The story was a cooperative effort of OCCRP, Novaya Gazeta and Barron's.  It was reported by Mihai Munteanu (OCCRP), Roman Anin (OCCRP/Novaya Gazeta) and Bill Alpert (Barron's). It was coordinated by Paul Radu (OCCRP). OCCRP can be reached at .

The trial opened yesterday of a financial adviser charged with money laundering over £600,000 allegedly part of proceeds of a Northern Bank raid when £26.5 million was stolen in Belfast 10 years ago. Timothy Cunningham(65), Woodbine Lodge, Farran, Co Cork, has denied nine counts of money laundering at Cork Circuit Criminal Court.

The state alleges in six of the charges that Mr Cunningham laundered sums of cash in January and February 2005, knowing or believing the cash to be the proceeds of the robbery at the Northern Bank Cash Centre, Donegall Square West in Belfast.

The State alleges in a further three charges that Mr Cunningham laundered sums of cash by using these monies to purchase three cars or vehicles, again knowing or believing the cash to be proceeds of the Northern Bank raid on December 20th, 2004.

Tom O’Connell SC , prosecuting, said the State would produce evidence that Mr Cunningham had “dispersed money in an unconventional or unorthodox way”.

The Northern Bank robbery was a large robbery of cash from the Donegall Square West headquarters ofNorthern Bank in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Carried out on 20 December 2004, the gang seized the equivalent of £26.5 million in pounds sterling and small amounts of other currencies, largely euros and US$s. This makes it one of the largest bank robberies in UK history. Although the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and theBritish and Irish governments claimed the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) was responsible (or had permitted others to undertake the raid), this is denied by the Provisional IRA and the political party Sinn Féin. Although one person has been convicted of money laundering, the investigation is still ongoing, and the case remains unsolved.


On the night of Sunday 19 December 2004, groups of armed men arrived at the homes of two officials of the Northern Bank, one in Downpatrick in County Down, the other in Poleglass, near Belfast. Masquerading as PSNI officers, they entered the homes and held the officials and their families at gunpoint. Bank official Christopher "Chris" Ward was taken from Poleglass to Downpatrick, the home of his supervisor, Kevin McMullan, while gunmen remained at his home with his family. Subsequently, McMullan's wife was taken from their home and held, also at gunpoint, at an unknown location. The following day both officials were instructed to report for work at the bank's headquarters at Belfast's Donegall Square West as normal.

At lunch time on Monday, 20 December 2004, Ward removed a sum of money thought to be around £1 million and placed it in a sports holdall. He walked out of the bank's Wellington Street staff entrance with the holdall and made his way to a bus stop in Queen Street, Belfast where he met up with one of the robbers. This action was later released as a closed circuit video presentation. After handing over the sports holdall with the stolen money, Ward returned to his work location. This was regarded as a test run for the main robbery later in the evening.

McMullan and Ward remained at work after the close of business, and later in the evening they gave entry to other members of the gang. The robbers entered the bank via the Wellington Street staff entrance and made their way to the bank's cash handling and storage facility. This held an unusually large amount of cash in preparation for distribution to automated teller machines for the busy Christmas shopping season. Cash was transferred to one or several vehicles parked outside in Wellington Street. The gang then fled. Shortly before midnight the gang holding the Ward family left, and those holding Mrs McMullan released her in a forest near Ballynahinch. The haul included £10m of uncirculated Northern Bank sterling banknotes, £5.5m of used Northern Bank sterling notes, £4.5m of circulated sterling notes issued by other banks, and small amounts of other currencies, largely eurosand US$s.

Following the raid, Northern Bank announced that it would recall all £300 million worth of its banknotes in denominations of £10 or more, and reissue them in different colours with a new logo and new serial numbers. The first of these new notes entered circulation on 11 March 2005.


Initial responses

Although the police initially refused to be drawn as to who might be involved, a number of commentators, including journalist Kevin Myers writing in the Daily Telegraph, quickly blamed the Provisional IRA, saying that only it had the wherewithal to conduct such a professional operation in the province. One senior police officer quoted in The Guardian newspaper said: "This operation required great expertise and coordination, probably more than the loyalist gangs possess".

Investigations were conducted by the Police Service of Northern Ireland. On 7 January 2005 Hugh Orde, the service's Chief Constable, issued an interim report in which he blamed the Provisional IRA for the robbery. The British and Irish governments concurred with Orde's assessment, as did the Independent Monitoring Commission (the body appointed by the Irish and British governments to oversee the Northern Ireland ceasefires). Sinn Féin, however, denied the Chief Constable's claim, saying the IRA had not conducted the raid and that Sinn Féin officials had not known of or sanctioned the robbery.Martin McGuinness said that Orde's accusation represented "nothing more than politically-biased allegations. This is more to do with halting the process of change which Sinn Féin has been driving forward than with anything that happened at the Northern Bank". Bertie Ahern, the Irish Taoiseach, on the other hand, said that "an operation of this magnitude had obviously been planned at a stage when I was in negotiations with those that would know the leadership of the Provisional movement."

On 18 January 2005 the Provisional IRA issued a two-line statement denying any involvement in the robbery: "The IRA has been accused of involvement in the recent Northern Bank robbery. We were not involved".

Despite this denial of involvement from the Provisional IRA, and others by its supporters, it has been widely believed in Northern Ireland, especially in unionist and loyalist circles, that the raid was the work of the IRA, and intended by them as a means of securing a pension fund for its active service members, who have been largely unemployed since the promulgation of the Good Friday Agreement.


At the time of the raid, Northern Bank was owned by National Australia Bank although a deal had been signed to sell the bank to Danske Bank in the following year, 2005. This meant that all the costs of the raid were taken by National Australia Bank and not Northern Bank.


Arrests and investigation developments

10 February

On 10 February the houses of Liam and Michael Donnelly were searched in connection with the robbery but nothing was found on the business premises either.[11]

17 February

On 17 February the Gardaí announced it had arrested seven people and recovered over £2 million, including £60,000 in Northern Bank notes, during raids in the Cork and Dublin areas, as part of ongoing investigations intomoney laundering. The Gardaí did not officially confirm that the raids were related to the Northern Bank robbery, but made the arrests under the Offences against the State Act, the republic's chief anti-terrorism law. Those arrested are reported to include several men from Derry and a former Sinn Féin councillor. A suspected IRA member was arrested at Heuston Station, along with two others. Money to the sum of €94,000 was found in their vehicle, in a washing powder box.[13] One of the men, Don Bullman from Co. Cork, was charged on 18 February at the Special Criminal Court with IRA membership. He was jailed for IRA membership but never charged in connection with the Northern Bank robbery.

18 February

On 18 February, Gardaí in Passage West arrested a man found to be attempting to burn sterling banknotes.[15]Two men in Dublin were released from questioning, as was the Sinn Féin member in Cork.

A top Irish businessman and associate of the TaoiseachPhil Flynn, stepped down from a number of positions pending the outcome of a Gardaí investigation into Chesterton Finance, of which he is a non-executive director. He stepped down as chairman of a government body overseeing decentralisation, as well as giving up a position on the board of VHI and as chairman of the Bank of Scotland.[17]

The PSNI recovered £50,000 in unused Northern banknotes at Newforge Country Club, a sports and social club inBelfast for off-duty and retired police officers, owned by the PSNI's Athletic Association. The PSNI stated it was a diversion, but it is being investigated.

19 February

Police confirm the money found at the Newforge Country Club was part of the £26 million from the bank robbery.

October 2005

On 12 October, Garda Commissioner Noel Conroy told a law enforcement conference in Dublin that he was satisfied that the money recovered in Cork in February came from the Northern Bank robbery.

November 2005

On 2 November the PSNI arrested two men in Kilcoo, County Down, as part of a pre-planned operation in connection with the robbery. Sinn Féin's Willie Clarke says that the two arrested are not members of his party.

On 3 November three more people were arrested in BelfastDungannon and Coalisland, bringing the total number of people arrested during the operation to five. All five were questioned in the PSNI's Serious Crime Suite in Antrimpolice station. It was reported that in the early hours of the morning, crowds blocked the road betweenCastlewellan and Newry near Kilcoo with burnt-out vehicles. Hugh Orde defended the police action as "proportionate" and gave his full backing to the detectives handling the operation. Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew claimed the raids were a "political stunt".

One of the five arrested during Tuesday and Wednesday has been released. The individual arrested in Dungannon was named as Brian Arthurs, a member of Sinn Féin and brother of Declan Arthurs, an IRA volunteer killed in 1987.

On 7 November, Martin McAliskey, a 42-year-old man from Coalisland, County Tyrone, was charged with making false statements to police in relation to a white Ford Transit van allegedly used in the robbery.

On 29 November police investigating the raid arrested Chris Ward and searched his home. They confirmed that another bank employee, a 23-year-old woman who was not named, was also arrested on the same day.

December 2005

On 2 December PSNI raided Casement Park, the Gaelic Athletic Association stadium in Belfast, and the related Social Club. The GAA reported the matter to the Irish government.

On 7 December, Chris Ward was charged with the robbery. Belfast Magistrates' Court was told the prosecution case was based on Ward's actions in the days preceding and during the raid, and a suspicious work rota, as well as discrepancies in Ward's original statements to police. Ward denied the charge and claimed police had harassed him and his family in an attempt to frame him. He also complained that he had been held in police custody for an unprecedented eight days under the Criminal Justice Act before being charged.

3 January 2007

All charges against Dominic McEvoy and Martin McAliskey are dropped by the Public Prosecution Service. Hugh Orde describes the developments as a setback. Chris Ward is remanded on bail until 31 January, when he will appear before the court again.

October 2007

A date of September 2008 was set for the trial of Chris Ward, in connection with the robbery. He is charged with robbery and two further charges of false imprisonment.

October 2008

On 9 October 2008, Ward was acquitted of the charges of false imprisonment and robbery. The judge discharged him after the prosecution said it would be offering no more evidence.

March 2009

On 27 March, financial adviser Ted Cunningham from Cork was found guilty of laundering over three million pounds sterling which came from the robbery.

May 2012

On 11 May 2012, the Court of Criminal Appeal quashed the conviction of Ted Cunningham on all ten charges, citing an invalidity of the warrant used to search his house. The invalidity referred to the fact that the warrant was issued by the senior Garda in charge of the investigation, as allowed for by section 29 (1) of the Offences against the State Act, a state of affairs which the Court found to be repugnant to the Constitution of Ireland. The Court ordered a retrial on nine of the ten original counts of money laundering. It directed that the tenth, relating to a sum of money allegedly found in Cunningham's home was not to be retried.

February 2014

Ted Cunningham was given a 5 year suspended sentence having pleaded guilty last week to two counts of money laundering following four days of trial.

BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile & Prince Charlie


Henry VIII

The breaking news of Sir James ‘Jimmy’ Wilson Vincent Savile, OBE, KCSG an English disc jockey, television presenter, media personality and charity fundraiser exposed as a paedophile child molester ‘apparently’ sent shock waves through the so called ‘British’ Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). However, once the word was out the story seems to be evolving.

Scotland Yard is leading the current investigation into accusations of abuse by the deceased former BBC DJ and presenter Savile, which was around 300 victims but has risen by 150 only recently. This is startlingly familiar to earlier British police investigations in the 1990’s. For example operation Ore was an investigation officially began in 1999 using information received from US law enforcement.

It was intended to prosecute thousands of users of a website reportedly featuring child pornography although British police already had a project in operation named Arundel which blended into operation Ore and later extended to operation Radium.


Arundel was a clean-up of the pop music scene and investigated allegations of sexual exploitation of teenagers. In almost every case it was boys at teen discos and later from care homes.

Chris Denning,Joe MeekAllan “fluff” FreemanJonathan King,  Jimmy SavileBrian Epstein and other heterophobes were complicit in enticing boys to parties where they were given drinks and drugs then molested. It is also known that high profile Jewish record companies provided such sex parties for these well-known DJ’s, known as payola.

On her release in 1977 she met up with Savilewho, according to Jones, was a keen supporter ofIan Brady, Myra Hindley’s accomplice in the Moors murders. Jones claimed that Savile was “bragging that he had met Ian Brady.”  She herself supported Hindley.

Chris Denning, radio 1 DJ and Beatles producer, spent 5 years in jail for child-sex offences, Homosexual Joe Meek, already found guilty of ‘persistently importuning for an immoral purpose’ in November 1963 for ‘cottaging’ – picking up boys for sex in public lavatories, was questioned by police about the so called “Suitcase Murder”.

This was a particularly gruesome crime. On 16 January, the dismembered remains of 17-year-old Bernie Oliver was discovered in two suitcases in a field in Tattingstone, Suffolk. This lead to police uncovering a large-scale juvenile pimping operation centred on a house in Tattingstone owned by the notorious Jewish gangster Ronnie Kray.

Meek was obsessed with dead bodies and was often to be found fiddling with graves. When asked he claimed to be recording voices from beyond the grave.

Alan “fluff” Freeman, a known homosexual revealed on breakfast television in March 1994 that he had become celibate in 1981, but had flirted with bisexuality. Jonathan King also has a conviction for child sex offences. Sex with young boys earned him a seven-year sentence.

In March 1999, Ray Teret, Jimmy Savile’s Chauffeur then 57, was jailed for six months for seducing and bedding a schoolgirl. Also in 1980 Jimmy’s older brother John Henry was fired from his job at a London psychiatric hospital for sexually assaulting a female patient.

Brian Epstein was conscripted to the army at 18, but was discharged after 10 months for being emotionally and mentally unfit. In his autobiography A Cellarful Of Noise, published in October 1964, Epstein claimed he was caught impersonating an officer. The hidden truth was that he had asked a tailor to make an officer’s uniform, which he wore while cruising the bars of London.

He was arrested by the military police, but avoided a court martial by agreeing to see an army psychiatrist who uncovered Epstein’s homosexuality. Epstein also moved in the same circles as Joe Orton, writer of Entertaining Mr Sloan.

A raving homosexual, Orton was murdered by his live-in boyfriend-a pervert who bludgeoned him to death with a hammer in his own bedsit by all accounts. Epstein knew both and Kenneth Williams also knew Orton well. John Peel was also implicated in the diary of a child suicide that listed her famous DJ abusers.

Operation Ore ended rather abruptly in 2003. The official line was lax investigation practices leading to questionable arrests. Yet even here Savile was one of a number of high profile suspects. Now with the revelations exposed by the current Savile affaire was Ore really dropped due to police incompetence or because the corruption exposed went to high up.

It is known that police discovered links between ‘British’ governmental paedophile suspects and the trafficking of children for purposes of prostitution from Belgium and Portugal during operation Radium Naturally it was not pursued as the suspects were to prominent.

This reeks of government conspiracy and while in office Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair did slap a D-notice on the circumstances surrounding the real closure ofOperation Ore. Victims of Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe were also found within 200 yards of Savile’s home and at the time of this investigationcastes of Savile’s teeth were taken.

Policeclearly knew of a ‘relationship’ between Sutcliffe and Savile. One of Savile’s abuse victims even urged police to investigate links between Sutcliffe and Savile further saying “Sutcliffe and Savile are two peas in a pod. It’s quite fitting the only person to stick up for Savile is Sutcliffe.”

The inference clearly has a homosexual overtone and Sutcliffe even named Savile as his partner in police interviews. With obvious links to one known serial killer and a fascination with a serial child murder, it is very interesting to note that Savilevisited Haut de la Garenne Children’s Home in 1972.

This is the site of sickening abuse and child murder. Pictures of Savile at the children’s home exist when the murders supposedly took place.

 With reports ofabuse at Bryn Estyn Children’s Home in Wales Detective chief Constable Bill Brerton in Wrexham is alsocalling for an inquiry into freemasonry following local links.

While Savile has never been accused of murder it has now come to light that the DJ had a penchant for dead bodies. The homosexual DJ Paul Gambaccini, Saviles close friend for 7 years, claimed a reporter was heard talking at a wedding 10 years ago about Savile being a necrophiliac. Savile was apparently sexually attracted to corpses and in an interview in 

1990 he admitted taking pleasure in escorting the deceased to Stoke Mandeville Hospital mortuary. Gambaccini also stated that Savile targeted the institutionalised and the hospitalised – and that this was known. This would give credence to the suggestion that Savile held the keys to patience wards at Broadmoor and used his charity work as a cover for more sinister activities.

David Cameron is following in Blair’s footsteps in his haste to protect potential ‘victims’ of a homosexual ‘witch hunt’ following the receipt of a list of celebrity paedophiles from Phillip Schofield. What is noteworthy is that Cameron instantly makes the connection betweenhomosexuality and paedophilia and rushes to defend before an argument has even been proposed.

 Of course Cameron shows no concern for the actual victims of these paedophiles. The foreign media blackout too speaks to the potential magnitude of this scandal because with its ever growing exposure in Britain alone the depth of this corruption has the potential to bring down this whole rotten Zionist Marxist establishment.

No-longer does it involve paedophilia and abuse but also the murder of the most vulnerable-children.

The Savile ‘abuse’ shutdown by media abroad is highly conducive of a further cover-up. Belgium has a proven Paedophile ring. Who’s tosay other countries are not involved.

Max Clifford so called ‘public relations guru’ is attempting to soften the crimes of his clients with the claim that dozens of celebrities from the 60s and 70s are “frightened to death” that they will be implicated in the Jimmy Savile child abuse scandal.

 His angle is that these celebrities should be excused because they lived a ‘hedonistic’ lifestyle where young girls threw themselves at ‘celebrities’ but they “never asked for anybody’s birth certificate”. The truth is Clifford is acting as the establishment’s buffer in an attempt to assuage guilt from the echelons of high society. Meanwhile, ‘acting operations manager Jon Bird said witnesses claimed Savile had an “inner-circle” — some working on Top of the Pops, the long-running BBC show that helped make him a household name.’

This involved at least three members of backstage staff at Top of the Pops who used to take young girls to parties, where horrific and inappropriate things took place. These are the charges investigated by Operation Arundel. Consequently the Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has said that the BBC is “too secretive” and should publish more information about its inner workings.

The statement is highly suggestive of a cover-up existing within the BBC and comes right on the back of potential further arrests following the release on bail  of Gary Glitter, the former pop star convicted of child sex offences, who was taken in for questioning on 28th October 2012. This scandal is taking place right at the heart of the same broadcasting company granted a Royal Charter to educate the British Nation. It follows that the sort of people producing programming for the public are homosexual and paedophilic.

This would explain the decidedly homophilic themes embedded in particularly children’s programming. For example current programming aimed at infants is remarkably androgynous with the likes of In the Night Garden  and Teletubbies  although here again allegations have been made that the Teletubbie character Tinky Winky is meant to be homosexual.

For older children see the storylines of the CBBC TV series Byker Grove. From here the notion of same sex relationships as ‘normal’ has been promoted across the board. A particular favourite is to insert the homosexual to present and the television is ever so ‘generous’. Initially there is the Jewish homosexual Stephen Fry presenter of QI, Then it escalates-Alan Carr Chatty Man, the So Graham Norton  show  and  Dale Winton who regularly hosts the National Lottery ‘in it to win it’. These people are regularly in the news flaunting their strange lifestyle and lovers. BBC2’s satirical political comedy series In the thick of it was also the centre of a child porn scandal. Is this the message that our children should be receiving.

Again the responsibility lies with the BBC as it apparently “exists to serve the public interest.” Since when has it been in the public interest to encourage the end of humanity. Incidentally on the subject of Homosexuals and paedophilia Elton John was stopped and searched at an airport in 2007.

A paedophilic photograph was confiscated from his person.  John’s excuse was that the photograph was part of an art exhibition.  The photo in question was amateurish and any real photographer would be able to point out the elementary technical mistakes but John’s name gives it ‘status’ as so called ‘art’. The censored version of the picture is at the bottom of the page of this link.

Currently John and his homosexual lover have one adopted child-a boy-the result of surrogacy.  The state is now allowing John another child one wonders if John and his ‘partner’ will be taking similar photos of their surrogate victims and calling it art. Homosexuals seize any opportunity to challenge sexual norm and the Jewish Marxist state revels in it because it furthers their aims in corrupting the masses.

Harriet Harman has been very quick on the draw in calling loudly for inquiries into the Savile matter. It is likely she hopes that the noise she is making deflects any guilt from her. The psychology is terribly amateurish but also very effective. It is a common Zionist Marxist ploy and one sees it so often that the masses fail to comprehend the significance, but those who scream the loudest also tend to be guilty of exactly those things they are screaming about.

 Harman was complicit in wanting the age of consent lowered and incest decriminalised. So when the Protection of Children Bill was put before Parliament in order to tighten the laws on child pornography by banning indecent images of minors Harriett Harman was at the forefront of the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) response.

Signed by Harriett Harman in April 1978, the NCCL’s formal response to the Government proposals to reform sex laws dubbed a “Lolita’s Charter” was unbelievable. Harman argued that, “…childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage”.

The attitude towards children displayedby Harman is reminiscent of the homosexual paedophile Alfred Kinsey who used paedophiles in his research duringthe 1960’s.

 It is a clear example of the Frankfurt School agenda marching through our institutions.   At this point the Paedophile Information Exchange or PIE had been an affiliate of the NCCL for about four years. In 1982 Harman left the NCCL to become Labour MP for Peckham and PIE went underground or so it wasthought.

 Harman has maintained a significant interest in paedophilia noticeably joining the party notorious for its paedophiles. In fact Labour Councillor (Southwark) John Friary, who went on trial 31st May for grooming a minor for sex, has close links with Harman. One wonders if PIE actually went ‘underground’ or merely undercover of the Labour Party. There is ample evidence to support the paedophilic leanings of Zionist homosexual Peter Mandelson’s brainchild New Labour, not least the prolific amount of child porn and molestation connected with this organization.

Not content with explicit sex in schools it seems Labour Teaching unions are now calling for lessons in porn.

If the agenda of New Labour is to promote sexual preference as a social condition that can change at will it is not much of a stretch to suggest that the BBC board contains Labour MP’s willing to push homosexuality as the medium for fluid sexuality. Naturally the danger of a ‘fluid’ sexual preference is what that preference is for and with the ever continuing revelation of the Jimmy Savile abuse case questions should be raised about this possible biosexual paedophile and possible serial killer’s access to British Society.

Savile himself was a self-confessed Zionist and prominent ‘friend of Israel’ often visiting and on the donation trail; a familiar quote was “you will never get a more Jewish Catholic than me”. Yet now that he is deceased Savile’s presence alone seems to have implicated whole swathes of the upper echelons of British society in perverted and corrupt practices. Is this mere coincidence or a well-placed Mossad operation…

This would not be too outlandish for the Israeli State. Sarkozy once worked for — and perhaps still does— Israeli intelligence as a “sayan” (Hebrew for helper) as one of thousands of Jewish citizens of countries other than Israel who cooperate with “katsas,” or Mossad case-officers. It is no great leap to suggest that Mossad have Zionist Goyim working for them, and in Britain a good place to start looking would be the Labour Party. Their agenda contains nothing of true interest to Great Britain and to healthy an interest in her corruption.

Not that the public believes everything on TV, nevertheless this article can be verified via the mainstream. This site onlydeals with facts not hearsay or ‘conspiracy theory’. There are plenty of famous conspiracy black propagandists out here on the net telling halve truths. This site has even warned about some of the most dangerous. Their intention is to muddy the waters.

Vatican vs Illuminati

Hundreds of disillusioned Anglicans are expected to defect to the Roman Catholic Church. It follows a campaign by Father Keith Newton to leave the Church of England in protest at its stance on the ordination of women and gay clergy. Fr Newton has encouraged Anglicans to join the Ordinariate – a special branch of Catholicism established by the Pope – to welcome protestant defectors.

The Ordinariate is a special structure established by Pope Benedict to welcome the disillusioned Anglicans. The efforts of the Archbishop of Canterbury have not been enough to stop hundreds of Anglo Catholics making the split that he had hoped to avoid.

In mid-January it got off the ground with the conversion of three Anglican bishops who are now bringing others on board. The Church of England says that 1,000 of its 13,000 parishes are opposed to the ordination of women.

The whole thing stinks to high heaven


At St. Barnabas church in Tunbridge Wells, the parish priest says that a majority of his parishioners want to defect – and he’s considering going too.

Father Ed Tomlinson believes that traditionalists who oppose the ordination of women have been badly let down by Church leaders.

First Step Fix

Yet the priest has been told by the diocese of Rochester that if he and his followers leave they will no longer be allowed to hold services, even on a shared basis, at St Barnabas – a nineteenth-century red-brick church where First World War poet Siegfried Sassoon was baptised.

The firm stance has infuriated Fr Tomlinson, the vicar since 2006. “The whole thing stinks to high heaven,” he said. “The Archdeacon made it abundantly clear that he does not want to entertain the notion of shared worship space and that he would resist my remaining here in any capacity.”

The Ordinariate talks of recruiting members in waves with the first beginning training at Lent and they hope many more will follow. “A little acorn it may have been at the moment, it could grow into a mighty oak,” one local church-goer said. “Was this the thing that started to undo the reformation?”

Australia Catholic

The Anglican Ordinariate in Australia is expected to attract about 1000 Anglicans from churches here, according to a report in The Age.

Catholics, mainstream Anglicans and members of the breakaway Traditional Anglican Communion set up a nine-member committee last week to oversee the transition to the ordinariate by June 12.

For the first time, Anglicans planning to switch to Rome believe they will be able to take their church properties, too, which has been a stumbling block.

TAC leader Archbishop John Hepworth said provided Anglican priests and congregations did not resign, they might be able to show ”beneficial ownership” and keep the properties when they moved.

He said that in England the Archbishop of Canterbury was allowing departing Anglicans to keep using their properties, and he hoped the Australian church would too. ”It would be the tolerant and Godly thing to do.”

Unfortunately, however, the British mainstream media is deeming Prince Charles and the rest of his ilk in positions of power and perceived genetic royalty as if they are beyond reproach.

This approach is typical and to be expected, yet it is also highly ironic considering the fact that such is the same position the mainstream media took with the allegations against Jimmy Savile for so many years.


As a result of the Savile affair, mainstream outlets, particularly the BBC, now have a lot of egg on their faces in the areas of credibility and respect.In short, any connections placing Prince Charles in an uncompromising position regarding his connections with Savile or his potential for sharing a penchant for unnatural relationships with children is being completely ignored if not officially covered up.

Although Prince Charles’ friendship with Jimmy Savile, allegedly begun when the two met in the 1970s during the course of working with children’s wheelchair sports charities, is now well-known, the extent to which the Prince and the Pedophile were connected appears to go much deeper than the mainstream media reports let on.


Of course, the two having come in contact at a “charity” event for the disabled is not too far-fetched, even if it is being reported by corporate outlets. After all, using children’s “charities” as a hunting ground and a cover for his true motives was a notorious method used by Savile who actually lived in children’s homes and hospitals so as to be closer to his victims.

This method is by no means specific to Savile, however, as many other sexual predators and pedophiles know exactly what areas of society to be involved in and what careers to pursue in order to gain access to their victims. Jerry Sandusky stands as a perfect example.

Clarence House, Prince Charles’ spokesman, declined comment on much of the relationship between Savile and Charles, only claiming that the relationship was mostly a result of their “shared interest in supporting disability charities.”


Supporting charities, indeed.

Of course, Savile was doing much more than “supporting disability charities.” That is, unless one places serial child rape in a much different category than the average person might. Indeed, one would not be judged out of place to question whether or not untold numbers of sexually assaulted children thoroughly cancels out any financial “support” that may have been given in the past. Apparently, in the view of British royalty, it does not.

In fact, child molester Savile has enjoyed an unbelievable level of access to the Royal Family for the past 40 years.

For instance, in the late 1980s, Savile was said to have acted as a type of marriage counselor between Charles and Diana, visiting their residence several times. At these visits, Dickie Arbiter, who took care of media relations for the Prince and Princess between 1988 and 2000 stated that, at these visits, Savile’s behavior was uncouth to say the very least.

Arbiter stated,

He would walk into the office and do the rounds of the young ladies taking their hands and rubbing his lips all the way up their arms if they were wearing short sleeves. If it was summer [and their arms were bare] his bottom lip would curl out and he would run it up their arms. This was at St James’s Palace. The women were in their mid to late 20s doing typing and secretarial work.

Not only that, but Savile was brought in to the private marital affairs of the Royals once again in order to help the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, in matters which were not disclosed to the public. Savile later claimed he was brought in to help “Fergie” keep her profile down.


Obviously, the relationship forged between Charles and Savile went far beyond two men who merely performed charity work for the same organizations. This can be evidenced by the fact that, in 1990, Charles even consulted Savile for advice on the appointment of a senior aide for himself and Princess Diana.

The relationship between Charles and Savile, particularly Savile’s access to the Royal Family’s affairs and the respect which was afforded Savile in this regard, has confused many onlookers.

After all, Savile was nothing more than a BBC presenter and disc jockey who was well past his prime. Not to mention the fact that Savile was well known as an uncontrollable freak, although many were under the impression that Savile’s television persona was merely part of his schtick.

Yet the clues to the Prince’s friendship with the Pedophile might have more to do with similar interests in entertainment than a mere happenstance relationship. Although the evidence which connects Prince Charles to pedophilia is nowhere near as documented as that of Jimmy Savile, a trail of information certainly seems to be leading in that direction.

At this point, it should be mentioned that, although the official line is that Savile and Charles met in the 1970s as part of the coincidence of mutual charity work, Savile himself has stated that he was friends with the Royal family “for a million years.”

In fact, it was reported that Savile actually stated he was introduced to the Royals in 1966 by Lord Mountbatten, a known pedophile and sexual pervert. In addition to Mountbatten, however, Greg Hallett, in his book Hitler Was A British Agent, also names Prince Philip as a pedophile.In reference to how he became introduced and ingratiated with the Royal family, Savile stated,

Coming from Lord Louis, who was the favourite uncle of Prince Philip, that was quite something. So obviously I hooked up with the Prince – what was good enough for Lord Louis was good enough for him.

So, already, we have Savile, a notorious pedophile linked to other individuals of the Royal Family named as pedophiles as well. Prince Philip, of course, is Prince Charles’ father. Lord Mountbatten is largely considered Charles’ mentor.

Savile was indeed close to British Royals as well as other elites for many years. It seems his qualification for such high connections were mainly due to his ability to obtain children for the twisted appetites of those considered beyond reproach for the mainstream media and, unfortunately, the general public.

Grigio “The Grey One” Would Miraculously Appear Whenever Danger Lurked Too Close To Saint Bosco. Saint Bosco, The Saint Who Protected Children!

Savile himself seemed to hint at this possibility in an interview conducted with Esquire where he stated, “The thing about me is I get things done and I work deep cover.”

Savile’s ridiculous television show (created for the sole purpose of enhancing his access to children) was thus appropriately named, Jim’ll Fix It. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the public were completely unaware as to what he was fixing and who he was fixing it for.

Essentially, it is clear that Jimmy Savile was a procurer of children not only for himself but also for wealthy pedophiles all across the world, particularly in Britain.

Even Savile’s own nephew has recently gone public with information tying Savile to a network of pedophiles and sick sexual parties where children were repeatedly raped.

Guy Marsden, Savile’s nephew, also stated that the parties were attended by household names in show business.

However, as is being widely reported in the news, Savile’s escapades of pedophilia were by no means limited to parties with the elite of entertainment.

Many of his attacks on children took place in the halls of the hospitals and charities he helped fund and operate, even residing in his own personal room at two of these institutions. At this point, it is worth noting that Savile and Prince Charles are open “supporters” of the same charities.

Apparently, Prince Charles and the Pedophile did have some similar tastes, some of which were even reported by the mainstream media.

In 1999, after the Prince accepted Savile’s invitation to a private meal at Savile’s home in Glencoe, Scotland, Savile had arranged for three women to parade around dressed in pinafores, a type of dress without sleeves and an open back that is often worn over other dresses. Interestingly enough, pinafores were often worn by children.


After the dinner, Charles wrote Savile a Christmas Card with a note that read, “Jimmy, with affectionate greetings from Charles. Give my love to your ladies in Scotland.”

Of course, the mainstream is certain that Charles is referring to the local women brought in for the Royal entertainment. However, unless the hired help made an exceptional impression upon the mind of Charles, one must wonder whether or not these particular ladies are the “ladies” to which Charles is referring in his Christmas note. After all, Savile’s Scottish cottage was also the scene of much child abuse as well.

Later, Charles sent Savile a box of cigars and a pair of gold cufflinks on his 80th birthday along with another note that cryptically read, “Nobody will ever know what you have done for this country Jimmy.

This is to go some way in thanking you for that.” Fortunately, many are now aware of what Jimmy has done for his country. Clearly, it would be best if they are given the full story along with it.

This is not likely to happen, however, as global pedophile rings are generally made up of some ofthe most elite individuals the world over.

This is particularly relevant when it comes to any questions regarding the behavior of the Royal Prince. At any moment when there is a chance that information might be leaked that would be damaging to the reputation of genetic royalty, the documents are sealed, the whistleblowers are dealt with, and the controversy covered up.


BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile

Some have even speculated that Princess Diana sealed her own fate after threatening to reveal networks of pedophilia within the Royal family. Indeed, Diana did speak of “dark forces” and members of an “organization” that were monitoring her shortly before her death.

For instance, when it appeared that the so-called Black Spider Memos, a series of letters written by Charles to government ministers, would damage the perception of Charles’ impartiality if he were to become king, then memos were immediately blocked by the British government.

Indeed, it would be extremely interesting to see the contents of the letters, since, in reality, the impartiality of the king is truly irrelevant in the grand scheme of British society and government.

What is particularly interesting is that the letters are being blocked from release now, as the biggest pedophilia scandal in British history is unfolding – specifically, at a time when one of the main focal points of the scandal, Jimmy Savile, was a close friend of the Prince. Even more so, it comes at a time when British government officials are also being implicated in pedophilia networks.

For those who may still be under the impression that pedophilia is a crime beyond the capabilities of British politicians, take a look at this partial compilation of British politicians convicted of pedophilia in recent years.

But, while the connections between Prince Charles and the Pedophile Jimmy Savile are themselves enough to make one wonder, the fact is that Savile is not the only relationship with a potential pedophile that Charles has maintained.

As reported by the Digital Journal, the Right Reverend Peter Ball is the most senior member of the Church of England to be arrested for offenses against children.

Ball was arrested on eight suspected cases of abuse against boys and young men ranging from ages 12 to 20 during the 1980s to 1990s. Ball, who was the former Bishop of Gloucester, resigned in 1993 after he was served with a police caution for “committing an act of gross indecency against a teenager.”

Upon his resignation, Ball retired to Manor Lodge, “a wisteria-clad property owned by the Duchy of Cornwall.” Manor Lodge is a property of the Prince’s Duchy of Cornwall.

In reference to his new living arrangements, Ball stated, “He (Prince Charles) has been wonderfully kind and allowed me to have a duchy house. The prince is a loyal friend. I have immense admiration for him, he has been through horrific times and is a great person.”

Considering the connections and personal friendships maintained by Prince Charles, one must question whether or not Charles himself has had some experience in the underworld of pedophilia. At the very least, the Prince is the absolute worst judge of character who ever lived.

What is also very interesting regarding the people named in these child sex scandals and the scope of the scandals themselves, is that the individuals who have been trying their best to bring this information to light have been ignored and derided for years on end. This has been the case whether the individuals were whistleblowers, researchers, or even victims themselves.

David Icke

David Icke

For instance, while much of mainstream Britain has had quite a time laughing at David Icke, suddenly his claims do not seem so fantastic and funny after all. Indeed, it was Icke who mentioned the global cabal of pedophiles and even many of the participants in them by name many years ago.

While his voice was scarcely heard above the laughter at the time, he is, at the very least, on the record as having exposed these networks early on. David Icke

This guy, William Hague, the foreign Secretary, needs to be questioned on why that Welsh inquiry into the massive pedophilia in Welsh children’s homes was given the brief that it did and therefore stopped these kids from talking about what happened to them.

And this is the big thing. If the police investigation does not knock on the door of Buckingham Palace over this whole Savile [case] and the wider implications that have followed then it’s a cover up.

Because the British Royal family are fundamentally involved in this right to the top. Right up to the people like Prince Philip and all these other people . . . . .

This man [Savile] was an aging sleazy disc jockey, right? And he had complete access to the British Royal family AND they used him as an official go-between [with] Prince Charles and Princess Diana when they were falling out in their marriage.

And now it’s come out this week that he was advising Prince Charles on aids to employ. Why is this man so close or was so close to the British Royal Family? The answer to that will bring the British Royal family down.

Considering Icke’s accuracy in terms of information on this particular issue, perhaps it would be wise if those who heard him speak years ago might take him a little more serious the second time around.
