545 politicians...vs. 300,000,000 reply - JFK

> the hell with the grubby under-

this is the most coherent email from you yet. Congratulations.

But of course its much much much worse, than just rummage through economy.
There is a plan, and it has been implemented.
The fix is in.

I'll quickly comment the tea-party confised mind thing

not true.  there is the military, FBI, CIA and many others.

The USA creates terrorism..
SYNTHETIC TERRORISM  (please google  GLADIO and actually read it!)

to make a problem and then being there to fix it,
is about job-security.
The corporate, privately owned world has DOUBLED the
world-wide workforce over the last 30 years

job UNSECURITY has been made ubiquitous in order
to keep wages down

Because the corporations like to have low taxes, and big spending
for subsidies (i.e. military) and because they love OWNING the public good

No, there are the TOP 10000 that rule all of the above,
they don't consider it a problem, they like it the way it is.

All they want is STABILITY.

correct.  JFK wanted to take it back...  bang. John Fitzgerald Jack Kennedy problem solved. Vietnam war can go on.

From the front and to the right.  The Grassy Knoll.
This is what happens to presidents that are too socialist.
According to the offical story, Lee Harvey Oswald was inside the Texas schook book depository.

They have plenty ability.  They are almost the ONLY thing that

No.  There is perception management.

Alex Carey said that the people of the US have been subjected to an
unparalleled, expensive, 3/4 century long propaganda effort designed to
expand corporate rights by undermining democracy and destroying the
unions. The 20th century, he wrote, is marked by three historic
developments: the growth of democracy via the expansion of the franchise,
the growth of corporations, and the growth of propaganda to protect
corporations from democracy. Carey's unique view of US history goes back
to World War I and ends with the Reagan era.

> If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

"They" are the top 10,000

> If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red ..

as I said above

> If the Army & Marines are in  IRAQ  , it's because they want them in IRAQ .

so true

THEY is not congress or politicians, but he US MILITARY INDUSTRIAL INTELLIGENCE COMPLEX

Mobile Phone Map of Israeli settlements

As of July 2009, approximately 304,569 Israelis live in the 121 officially-recognised settlements in the West Bank, a further 192,000 Israelis live in settlements in East Jerusalem and over 20,000 live in settlements in the Golan Heights

Facts on the Ground available on the App Store and the Android Market, maps Israeli development in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
It's developed by Americans for Peace Now

Zoom in on any particular settlement and learn when it was built; how many people it houses; how its population has grown, going back 20 years; how big it is; how ideologically committed its residents are to settling. There are links to news stories and videos about selected settlements and outposts.
Facts on the Ground "will update constantly to breaking events such as settlement/outpost construction, outpost removals, or settler violence," according to Ori Nir, a spokesman for Americans for Peace Now

The settlements absorb annually about 1000 new immigrants from outside Israel. In the '90s, the annual settler population growth was more than three times the annual population growth in Israel.

In 2010 Palestinian leaders announced a ban prohibiting Palestinian laborers from working in Israeli settlements.

The prospect of losing Palestinian labour at the end of 2010 has forced farms run by settlers in the Jordan valley to draw up plans to bring in more workers from East Asia. Israeli observers say it will not undermine the economic viability of the settlements. "Economically speaking, it is negligable," said Amotz Ass-El, a Jerusalem Post columist

Palestinian officials estimate that settlers sell goods worth some $500 million into the Palestinian market

The UK Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has suggested that products produced by the settlements for sale in UK markets be labeled as such.

The International Court of Justice concluded that Israel had breached its obligations under international law by establishing settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem. The Court held that Israel cannot rely on a right of self-defence or on a state of necessity to preclude the wrongfulness of imposing a régime that is contrary to international law. The Court also concluded that the Israeli régime violates the basic human rights of the Palestinians by impeding the liberty of movement of the inhabitants of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (with the exception of lsraeli citizens) and their exercise of the right to work, to health, to education and to an adequate standard of living.

International intergovernmental organizations such as the Conference of the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention,[48] every major organ of the United Nations,[49] the European Union, and Canada,[50] have declared that the settlements are a violation of international law. A review of Israel's country report conducted by the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination stated "The status of the settlements was clearly inconsistent with Article 3 of the Convention, which, as noted in the Committee's General Recommendation XIX, prohibited all forms of racial segregation in all countries. There is a consensus among publicists that the prohibition of racial discrimination, irrespective of territories, is an imperative norm of international law.

Israel has justified its civilian settlements by stating that a temporary use of land and buildings for various purposes appears permissible under a plea of military necessity and that the settlements fulfilled security needs

Live Working or Die Fighting

Paul Mason on Live Working or Die Fighting: How the Working Class Went Global


The Census Bureau's latest report shows that the numbers of Americans living in poverty and without health insurance have skyrocketed. 43.6 million people—about one in seven—lived below the poverty level of $22,000 for a family of four in 2009, pushing the national poverty rate to a fifteen-year high of 14.3 percent. We speak with British journalist Paul Mason about his new book, Live Working or Die Fighting: How the Working Class Went Global

JUAN GONZALEZ: The Census Bureau's latest report shows that the numbers of Americans living in poverty and without health insurance have skyrocketed: 43.6 million people—about one in seven—lived below the poverty level of $22,000 for a family of four in 2009, pushing the national poverty rate to a fifteen-year high of 14.3 percent. Meanwhile, the number of uninsured Americans grew from 46.3 million people in 2008 to 50.7 million last year. The proportion of Americans with employer-based health coverage reached its lowest rate in twenty years: nearly 56 percent.

AMY GOODMAN: Many commentators have noted these numbers point to an all but disappearing American middle class. But few people are talking about the working class and the role of the labor movement, whether in this country or elsewhere.

Well, that's the subject of an award-winning British journalist's work. His name is Paul Mason. His book is Live Working or Die Fighting: How the Working Class Went Global. It's just out here in the United States. Paul Mason's the economics editor for BBC Newsnight and appears on BBC America. He's also the author of Meltdown: The End of the Age of Greed.

Paul Mason, it's great to have you in New York right before you go back to Britain. You've been traveling for two weeks now through the United States. Talk about the middle class.

PAUL MASON: It's disappearing. For us, the Brits, the concept of the American middle class has always been a bit flaky. We notice that your politicians call people who earn salaries and work "workers" at election time and then "middle-class" when things are going, you know, a little bit south in terms of the economy. The figures you've just read out are borne out by the income statistics. We had the Census Bureau telling us that American average incomes have stagnated for a decade—on some measures, stagnated for thirty years. We know what filled the gap: credit. The credit boom is over. And I think, for many Americans I've met on this trip, the whole—the economic collapse of their lives. I met a couple who had lost—who had gone from 75,000 pounds a year to 14,000 pounds a year. I said to them, "Do you still feel middle-class?" They said, "Kind of, but we're not sure what that means anymore." To me, as a journalist looking from the outside, that's going to have big impacts on your—on the sociology of America, and eventually on its politics.

JUAN GONZALEZ: Well, I was struck in your book where you basically go head on against a myth that's been spread quite a bit in—especially in Europe and the United States: the deindustrialization of the modern world. And in fact, you say that the opposite is true, that in fact there are more industrial workers than ever before. It's just that they're not in necessarily the United States or Germany or England.

PAUL MASON: I think the number one fact that history will record about the three decades we've lived through is the doubling of the world's workforce, "The Great Doubling," as one Harvard academic calls it. Now, this has huge implications. I've had the privilege to report on this. You were speaking about contractors earlier, Iraqi contractors earlier on. I went to Lima, Peru, and found some of the people who had been working in the Green Zone, dumped back in Lima with life-changing injuries, no insurance. They're part of the global working class.

But, you know, just as the stories in history didn't get reported in that way, they're not being reported in that way now. I think the story of global labor is one of the most important things we're living through and certainly is something that everybody should own. It shouldn't be the property of archivists and activists, because these are great human stories of individual bravery and triumph over adversity. I just wanted to retell them to people who just have no other way of knowing what their grandfathers and great-grandfathers did.

AMY GOODMAN: Paul Mason, we were just in London, where you're going back to, and we interviewed the great spy writer John le Carré—and we're going to play that in the next few weeks. You begin your book in the community, often called the slum, in Kenya, Kabira, where—well, people may know it in the United States only as the place—the backdrop of The Constant Gardner, John le Carré's book. But why did you start in Kenya, in Kabira?

PAUL MASON: Because I've reported from that shantytown, that slum—that self-organized community, as they would prefer to call it—many times. But it always occurs to me that we see it as a poverty story. And, of course, the struggles in those streets are about avoiding your shack being bulldozed by some hoodlum. But just one mile away is the Kenyan industrial district. And every morning at 5:00 a.m., those people go out of the slums and into the factories. We don't see them as workers, and yet, without those people living in the slums—earning, by the way, much less than a Chinese worker could earn—all our green beans in Europe and our fresh tulips would not appear.

It's a hidden story. And they need to know, I think, just as the people here in Lower Manhattan, on your streets. You know, they're having trouble with the geography of the place they live, recent migrants. They don't know the history, that Irish and Jewish migrants before them fought exactly the same battles and how they won and what it did to them as people and how it raised them up as people. I just think that we're almost living in a sort of Groundhog Day, where workforces keep repeating and reliving, just as the people in Kenya are reliving what, you know, my great, great-grandfathers actually went through in the first phase of industrialization. I'm from an industrial town in northern Britain.

JUAN GONZALEZ: The impact of the new centers of the working class and the world being China, India, Mexico, these other countries now, where labor organization is a lot more difficult because the government is so—in most of these places, in essence, controlling, even the unions that develop. What is it doing to labor consciousness, to solidarity between labor organizations around the world?

PAUL MASON: Well, above all, I think China is the absolute pivot of what's going to happen in the world. I've managed to track the emergence of the Chinese labor movement. When I first started to go into China, migrant laborers, the most oppressed people, were just happy to be living in a dormitory, to be honest. You interview a young woman who gets her first pair of high-heel, pointy shoes. That is not—she doesn't see it as a tragedy that she has to live in a dormitory and work twelve, fourteen hours a day.

But now, five years on, it's not just the fact that the militancy is there. I've spoken to some of the people who organize these Chinese strikes. You know how they organize them? I said, "How do you organize a strike?" Woman said to me, "You write on a piece of paper the size of a postage stamp the single Chinese character 'strike.' And then you pass it to the next person on the line." She looked to me gone out, as—that there might be a difficulty organizing a strike. It's easy, because they see the gap between what they're promised and what they're getting. So we are in a tremendously rapid development of a labor movement in China.

Now, don't think that this is a labor movement that is going to bring down the Communist Party. The Communist Party has done something very clever. It has depoliticized labor disputes, so that these strikes we had this summer, in Foshan with Honda and the Foxconn, the suicide bids, it became political, but it doesn't become insurrectionary. The Chinese government has learned its lesson from the twentieth century revolutions where those two things mixed up. But we are seeing the development of a labor movement in China. There's no mistaking it.

AMY GOODMAN: What about these protests that are taking place now in France? And just to say, overall, I think people in the United States have very little information about what happens in the rest of the world and how we're connected to the rest of the world. But you've got millions of people marching in the streets, protesting the rising of the retirement age from, what, sixty to sixty-two.

PAUL MASON: I mean, look, all over Europe, the social bargain that came with the formation of the European Union is now under question and under threat, because these are heavily welfarized societies. The states are all deeply in debt. Unlike you, they can't just print the money. The European Central Bank won't print the money. So they're going to have to balance their books in short order. So the attack is on pensions. And as we know, pensions are just deferred pay. It's like clawing back, you know, in some cases, 20 percent of your pay. People are annoyed.

Now, nation by nation, it's going to play out differently. In Spain, later this month, there's a general strike. It could be quite big. We've already seen the Greek general strikes. Here, however, I think we're talking about old labor—labor movements that have been around for 200 years, that are not particularly setting on fire the young. And I think many people in Europe, when they look at these protests, the great worry—I mean, France, there were young and old on the streets—but the worry is the young don't see any future. They don't—they're not going to have a pension. They're not going to have much the same level of healthcare. They're going to work 'til they're seventy. There's a quite clever game being played about the young lose out from the benefits accrued by the old. And that's going to be a rising story. I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a big story here in parts of the workforce where you have still good benefits, good healthcare. It's the oldest trick in the book to say, well, play one off against the other.

JUAN GONZALEZ: Well, another way that one is being played off against the other in many of these countries is now over the issue of immigration.


JUAN GONZALEZ: You have in Sweden, in Italy, and even in Germany now, in France, huge anti-immigrant movements that are developing, here in the United States. And in essence, immigration is the other side of international capital. It's international—people being forced to move to be able to survive. How is this whole anti-immigrant trend feeding into potential fascist movements in many of these countries?

PAUL MASON: Well, the interesting thing is that the European right—you know, most of the European right originated in the remnants of World War II fascism. But it's evolving. You'd have to say that it's evolving towards a kind of plebeian—often based on things like opposition to Islam rather than race itself, color of skin. It certainly is there. I think that you have—your news has been dominated by this whole issue of mosques. We have that in the UK.

But I think the point about my book is to say we live in a global labor market. The labor market starts at our door and ends at a bus stop in the poorest city in China. That's the labor market. And I think organized labor has had a lot of trouble getting its head around this. They hate offshoring. The American unions don't like it. Fair enough. Then parts of the American population don't like the influx of migrants. But if you were to stand back and say, "What period of history are we living through?" we're living through the history of the globalization of labor. So, one has to, in one's life, get used to it.

My town I come from in Britain is unrecognizable demographically to what it was when I lived there in the 1980s. But when I was in there in the 1980s, it was the same as it was in the 1900s when my granddad was there. The change we're going through is a one-time-only change, I think. It's for everybody to decide what they thing about that. But it's—I can't see it as stoppable. The country of Spain is short ten million people. It won't have a pension system, unless it gets ten million more employees by the middle of the century. Where is it going to get them from?

AMY GOODMAN: Paul Mason, why are US labor organizations, why unions, are so vilified in the United States? I mean, you have the blaming of the demise of the auto industry, by many, on the pension plans, the healthcare funds of the United Auto Workers. You have the blaming of the education budget shortfalls on teachers' unions and their pay.

PAUL MASON: I think you have to see both sides of this. I think when everyone finds the remains of a strong union way of life, one finds people who are grieving about the collapse of the social solidarity around them. I found this in Detroit. You find people who want to hang on to what they have. You know, I think that can sometimes lead to behavior by unions that seems to people who have no rights or benefits as selfish. Now, I think that is where that debate begins. And I think in Britain unions stick to what you've got. You hang on to what you hold. The episodes I cover historically in my book are when trade unions stepped out of that.

William Dudley Haywood, Big Bill Haywood, the leader of the IWW in America, was the leader of white men in the Rocky Mountains, and they were very militant, and they could dictate to the bosses. They blew up everything they didn't like—the strike breakers, the biggest silver processor in the world. There was a lot of whiskey drunk. But then he just realized, they weren't winning. And why weren't they winning? Because the Italian and Lebanese and Jewish migrants in the Eastern cities were not organized. So this man, who had already done—he had lived his life—stepped out of that and said, "I'm going to organize them." And I think that, you know, all over the world, that is the choice facing the existing organized labor. You either stick to your bastions and what you already own and the great union halls and the banners and the old strikes you won twenty years ago, or you do what Hayward did, and you rethink, certainly—I've reported on this process of rethinking. It's something that's happened in the American unions. It's certainly happened in the UK unions.

In the financial district of London, there are Somali and Brazilian migrants organizing in the very exact place that the Jewish and Irish migrants were organized. They just—I went up to them and said, "Do you know you're doing this? Do you even know about this?" They didn't even know about strikes that happened twenty years ago. So I think the power of history helps educate us. And I mean, it's not a partisan history. It's a history that says, look, for employers who want to do the right thing, here also is the way that employer-worker bargains have worked in the past. There has been industrial democracy, believe it or not, in capitalist countries that didn't hold themselves to be that left-wing.

AMY GOODMAN: Your previous book called Meltdown—can you talk about the issue of the United States and how it's used as a model, despite the collapse? You talk about writing it on the train from New York to Washington as Lehman Brothers are going down.

PAUL MASON: Yeah. I mean, I lived through a very frenetic two weeks during the collapse of Lehman. I was outside Lehman on the day it collapsed, on the street, stood outside AIG trying to find out what's going on at the moment that went the next day. And what I think we have lived through is the collapse of an economic model. I mean, the fact that people are still trying to make an economic doctrine work doesn't—and that they can't think of anything better—doesn't mean that it works.

But I think the policy debate now is beginning to move towards bigger choices. Fed Chairman Bernanke said two weeks ago that he almost—he made a speech at Jackson Hole saying, "Look, I'm running out of options, guys. I can do these things you want me to do—more quantitative easing, boost the inflation target, all kinds of other things—but I'm really not sure that any of them are going to make much difference." When you get a policymaker saying that, what you realize is that you are probably on the eve of a bigger ideological debate. The monetary stimulus does not revive America. This is why I'm here. And the fiscal stimulus, well, we've had it, and it's maybe saved some jobs. It's annoyed a lot of people. It certainly hasn't revived America.

The next question has to be, "Well, what does?" You were talking about some of it, I think, earlier. You know, there is now a discussion about currency, big discussion about the currency. Bernanke, himself, in his book on the '30s, reminds us that countries that devalue their currency first get out of the Depression first. Now Europe's devalued its currency. Britain has relentlessly devalued. Japan has devalued. I would expect the policy debate in America to hot up in that direction.

JUAN GONZALEZ: But there are also major differences in how the different governments are responding to the crisis. Obviously Germany has taken the lead in being a lot more aggressive against the threat of financial speculators and derivatives than the United States. And there is still this issue that the finance capital has had a heyday now for so long, in terms of their being able to develop these exotic instruments that are almost like phantoms in terms of a financial system. How do you resolve these differences between Germany, Britain, the United States, and how they're going to deal with the financial reform?

PAUL MASON: I think, look, either there's—there's a binary outcome. Either there's going to be global re-regulation of the banking industry, as many of the governments want, or there isn't. And the re-regulation will take place on a nation-by-nation basis. But, you know, in Britain, our central bankers are doing some very radical thinking about the future role of finance. They are basically saying in their academic work, we're never going to get stung again. We are not going to have the situation where the safety net is extended again and again. Or if we do, then the banking industry has to pay some kind of much more—much, much, much bigger social insurance cost towards the state. The state, in other words, will get bigger and stronger as a result of this. I think that we either go in a global direction or, as with trade, what happens is that the whole world fragments. I wouldn't like to know what the world is going to be like if the world finance system fragments. There are many people, I think, on the left wishing it to happen. But as Keynes said, you know, don't wish for the failure of the palliative measures, because you might not like what comes after.

AMY GOODMAN: We're going to leave it there. I thank you very much, Paul Mason, for joining us, award-winning journalist, author, economics editor for BBC Newsnight, appears on BBC America. His new book is called Live Working or Die Fighting: How the Working Class Went Global. It's just come out in the United States. Congratulations.

John Le Carre - USA 2003 Blair Hush Child  << watch him say it on video

JOHN LE CARRÉ: America has entered one of its periods of historical madness, but this is the worst I can remember: worse than McCarthyism, worse than the Bay of Pigs and in the long term potentially more disastrous than the Vietnam War.

The reaction to 9/11 is beyond anything Osama bin Laden could have hoped for in his nastiest dreams. As in McCarthy times, the freedoms that have made America the envy of the world are being systematically eroded. The combination of compliant US media and vested corporate interests is once more ensuring that a debate that should be ringing out in every town square is confined to the loftier columns of the East Coast press.

The imminent war was planned years before bin Laden struck, but it was he who made it possible. Without bin Laden, the Bush junta would still be trying to explain such tricky matters as how it came to be elected in the first place; Enron; its shameless favouring of the already-too-rich; its reckless disregard for the world's poor, the ecology and a raft of unilaterally abrogated international treaties. They might also have to be telling us why they support Israel in its continuing disregard for UN resolutions.

But bin Laden conveniently swept all that under the carpet. The Bushies are riding high. Now 88 per cent of Americans want the war, we are told. The US defence budget has been raised by another $60 billion to around $360 billion. A splendid new generation of nuclear weapons is in the pipeline, so we can all breathe easy. Quite what war 88 per cent of Americans think they are supporting is a lot less clear. A war for how long, please? At what cost in American lives? At what cost to the American taxpayer's pocket? At what cost—because most of those 88 per cent are thoroughly decent and humane people—in Iraqi lives?

How Bush and his junta succeeded in deflecting America's anger from bin Laden to Saddam Hussein is one of the great public relations conjuring tricks of history. But they swung it. A recent poll tells us that one in two Americans now believe Saddam was responsible for the attack on the World Trade Centre. But the American public is not merely being misled. It is being browbeaten and kept in a state of ignorance and fear. The carefully orchestrated neurosis should carry Bush and his fellow conspirators nicely into the next election.

Those who are not with Mr Bush are against him. Worse, they are with the enemy. Which is odd, because I'm dead against Bush, but I would love to see Saddam's downfall—just not on Bush's terms and not by his methods. And not under the banner of such outrageous hypocrisy.

The religious cant that will send American troops into battle is perhaps the most sickening aspect of this surreal war-to-be. Bush has an arm-lock on God. And God has very particular political opinions. God appointed America to save the world in any way that suits America. God appointed Israel to be the nexus of America's Middle Eastern policy, and anyone who wants to mess with that idea is a) anti-Semitic, b) anti-American, c) with the enemy, and d) a terrorist. [...]

What is at stake is not an imminent military or terrorist threat, but the economic imperative of US growth. What is at stake is America's need to demonstrate its military power to all of us—to Europe and Russia and China, and poor mad little North Korea, as well as the Middle East; to show who rules America at home, and who is to be ruled by America abroad.

The most charitable interpretation of Tony Blair's part in all of this is that he believed that, by riding the tiger, he could steer it. He can't. Instead, he gave it a phoney legitimacy, and a smooth voice. Now I fear, the same tiger has him penned into a corner, and he can't get out.

It is utterly laughable that, at a time when Blair has talked himself against the ropes, neither of Britain's opposition leaders can lay a glove on him. But that's Britain's tragedy, as it is America's: as our Governments spin, lie and lose their credibility, the electorate simply shrugs and looks the other way. [...]

I cringe when I hear my Prime Minister lend his head prefect's sophistries to this colonialist adventure. His very real anxieties about terror are shared by all sane men. What he can't explain is how he reconciles a global assault on al-Qaeda with a territorial assault on Iraq. We are in this war, if it takes place, to secure the fig leaf of our special relationship, to grab our share of the oil pot, and because, after all the public hand-holding in Washington and Camp David, Blair has to show up at the altar.

"But will we win, Daddy?"

"Of course, child. It will all be over while you're still in bed."


"Because otherwise Mr Bush's voters will get terribly impatient and may decide not to vote for him."

"But will people be killed, Daddy?"

"Nobody you know, darling. Just foreign people."

"Can I watch it on television?"

"Only if Mr Bush says you can."

"And afterwards, will everything be normal again? Nobody will do anything horrid any more?"

"Hush child, and go to sleep."

911 used Hologrammes

Dr. Stefan Grossmann
Wed Oct 15 03:12:42 2003


THE WORLD TRADE CENTER was built and designed to withstand the impact of a jumbo jet. That includes the Boeing models 747,757,767,777.

Therefore when a Jumbo Jet, consisting primarily of merely a hollow pressurized cabin, impacts the reinforced concrete and steel support beams of the World Trade Center that it crumples on impact on the outside of the building and falls to the ground because of little encroachment into the building.

The American Media has told people that a Jet wing can cut through steel reinforced concrete designed to withstand the impact of a high speed jet impact.

America was told that what they witnessed was what appeared to be a jet flying completely into the World Trade Center as if it were Jello. What the American media reported was something that is physically impossible. This is another Single Bullet Theory.
(here they switched off the laser too late)

The answer is that a cruise missile with a military hologram aboard crashed into the building. A Cruise missile is small enough to fly into the building if it were to avoid any steel beams and merely properly aimed at open office glass panes.

Click here[1].TV.wmv
and witness what it looks like when a military hologram strapped to a Cruise missile flies into the World Trade Center. It is like flying into a sea of Jello. Furthermore the explosion takes place well after it would have, had it been a real airplane. Certainly Big Brother Daddy Bush pulled off one of the greatest illusions of all time.

And here is another version from ABC News. Click here

So then what actually imploded the building? Answer: The WTC buildings were wired with explosives by sub-contractors working alongside the FBI. All of the European Intelligence agencies have the documented proof of how this magic show was carried out.

Meanwhile Lenny suggests that in keeping with the past Illuminati history of similar treasonous operations watch for a Sub-contractors Death List to emerge.

What illusion will they try risk next? Stand by and fasten your seat belts and put on your percept cap and read Stefan Grossman's report below.

What Happened to the Black Boxes?

9-11 Mystery Unravelled
Stefan Grossmann On Cloakanddagger Radio Show

How Military Hightech Was Used On 9-11-2001

The author of this website, Dr. Stefan Grossmann, was on Lenny Bloom's Cloakanddagger Radio Show last night ( For one hour, he informed listeners in Canada and the northern U.S.A. how military hightech was used on 9-11-2001 in order to simulate realistic-looking holographic projections of airplanes into the World Trade Center. While he was looking at engineering graphics of the event on his computer screen, he verbally informed the listeners:

Watch this CNN video of the second impact
(WTC south tower) in slow motion – the ENTIRE plane including the wing tips etc. "glide" unobstructed (despite steel walls!) into the building – they do not interact with the solid steel frame that surrounds the building – no jolt, no wobble – the explosion is delayed after the impact despite the fact that the wing tanks of the alleged Boeing 767-200 are full of explosive kerosene and "fly through" that what is functionally a solid steel wall. (A note aside: a single brick falling on a wing let the space shuttle crash!)

Premise a: The hole in the WTC south tower is considerably smaller than the alleged Boeing 767-200.

Premise b: The CNN video (and other videos by ABC, Spiegel TV etc.) show that the ENTIRE plane "glided" into the building.

Conclusion: Before the eyes of millions of people, the outer wings (at least a total of 30 feet), the tail rudder and the tail winglets of the alleged "airplane" flew through the steel perimeter wall of the WTC2 tower WITHOUT LEAVING A HOLE! Physics mandates us to believe: the alleged "airplane" was no solid object. It was a hologram! The Pentagon has "airborne holographic projector" technology mounted on a cruise missile, (details were declared a military secret in 1994, more about this in my writings). The hole lets in a cruise missile which was flying inside a much bigger hologram, disguising it as a "hijacked passenger plane".

Further, the video shows us the "lightning beep" flashing up just before the plane's nose glides into the wall of steel perimeter columns. This is a scalar weapon (see Col. Thomas E. Bearden at and elsewhere on his huge web site) like it was used in Bagdhad 2003 out of a U.S. tank to melt cars and buses (see report at ). This "scalar weapon" is an advanced laser-analogous weapon that can melt steel in an instant. It created the "hole" to let a disguised cruise missile in the building. The hole was not created by a solid object. (The real hijacked planes were exchanged against the flying objects long before coming close to the buildings, see and

The laser-analogous scalar flash can also be seen on the (uncensored version of the) amateur video (Naudet video) of the first crash (north tower), (explaining the flash as the firing of a missile, which it was not – it was a scalar flash with about the same effect).

The "flying objects" that "hit" WTC tower 1 and the Pentagon were also such holographically disguised cruise missiles. At the Pentagon, Corporal Jason Ingersoll of the Marine Corps photo lab actually photographed the initial impact hole before the wall sagged and fell – again, the hole is only 15-20 feet big, much too small for a Boeing 757-200 to pass through, but big enough for a cruise missile – was the cigar-shaped object draped in a blue foil that a team of soldiers carried away from the Pentagon crash site on their shoulders the smoking gun/cruise missile?

The actual barrel-shaped projector pod of the military's "airborne holographic projector" was found to be shown in the video footage,

The whole thing is: use of military hightech in order to trick the people into seeing "hijacked airplanes" – subsequently, the buildings fell due to explosives in controlled demolitions, as seen by firemen, recorded on video and documented by U.S. government seismic measurement stations.

Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, AIG and the
Burning Down of the Madhouse
April 05, 2005
(Note 1-4-2006: Some links have expired, but are left standing to identify the historic sources.)
try  to revive them

Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, age 79, is living proof to the insight that the insurance industry is full of crooks. To the knowledge of this researcher, none is so crooked as he. The true summary of his lifetime, still veiled behind numerous curtains of legend to this day, is aptly drawn in the following illustration:

Doesn't HE look weird?

To the left, the illustration shows a weird-looking Maurice Greenberg, the departed thief of AIG, the world's largest insurance. To the right is shown a scene from 9-11. The three words in the illustration are self-explanatory.
A background dossier about Greenberg compiled in the year 2000 is below. Here is some more recent news about Greenberg and AIG:
1. Greenberg and AIG: Recent News
(Without News of Greenberg's Resignation)
(For news about Greenberg's resignation in March and early April 2005, see the next section below. This present section sets the stage by presenting the hidden recent facts behind Greenberg's resignation.)
The recent news about AIG, Maurice Greenberg, his two sons and Warren Buffett indicates that the inside attacks of 9-11-1 are a huge accounting fraud ... a mega-Enron ... of the U.S. insurance industry. Initially, the insurance industry had to pay several billion $$ in damages. However, 9-11-1 has changed the landscape of insurance risk in such a way that premiums went into a steep hike, and today the U.S. insurance industry is the major beneficiary of 9-11-1 to the tune of over $13 billion increase (in 2004) for AIG alone (AIG alone thus achieved record revenues in 2004 of $100 billion according to preliminary figures).
The beneficiary of a crime is always a prime suspect of a crime. Here: the driving force behind the insurance industry. The Greenbergs, father and two sons, and Warren Buffett, their partner apparent in another Enron-size accounting fraud.
Don't look ... this is plain brutal!
There are numerous links, hints and more direct indicators that 9-11-1 is a crime that was backed by certain investment bank and insurance circles with a special focus on Maurice Hank Greenberg. This author has massive research to back up this accusation, published at and the talk radio for spies site
Here are two outlines of the evidence ... basically, an insurance fraud involving a rigged building demolition and the mass-murder of several thousand people: .
(scroll down to section III)
Note about the mentioning of Kissinger: Greenberg is reportedly the oldest and best-paying client of Henry Kissinger.
Here is my more detailed report in PDF format on the Greenberg-Kissinger-Blackstone insurance fraud connection and the insider trading of options around 9-11-1:
The author is a practicing lawyer in Germany and is confident that across the globe, perpetrators of insurance fraud are prosecuted, investigated, indicted and convicted for such evidence and in cases where there is less evidence.
Only in corrupt countries such as the U.S.A. can such normal and natural workings of justice be stopped and quashed.
The following section provides some insight why the Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer, is not doing his duty of prosecuting and investigating crimes:
2. The Eliot Spitzer Fraud:
How Greenberg is Being Covered By A Mere Mock Prosecution
(The News of Greenberg's Resignation)
Conveniently, Greenberg together with his contacts has been able to hoist a company lawyer into the position of criminal prosecutor. That fellow's name is Eliot Spitzer, posing as a rabid guardian of the criminal code, but in reality doing nothing else than prosecuting serial killers for shoplifting and otherwise sitting on his hands to let the law rot. If these people hope that the truth will drop dead or go away they are mistaken. The truth is knocking loudly on their door and calling their name.
Eliot Spitzer's prosecution against Greenberg and AIG is an ersatz prosecution ... a sham intended as a diversion. The idea behind this is that if Spitzer appear aggressive enough and the media convey this image convincingly, any true and meaningful reporting of AIG's and Greenberg's terroristic and treasonable felonies can be avoided. In other words, Eliot Spitzer, a former partner of AIG's corporate lawfirm Skadden Arps, who some say is a crooked operation, is doing everything to save a major client of his former lawfirm. Or in short: friends help friends. Eliot Spitzer has been provided with a Citizens' Complaint about the criminal aspects of 9-11-1, including numerous details about the specific and tangible insurance fraud involving Silverstein, Blackstone Group, Greenberg, Kissinger together with a research DVD full of data. Spitzer is stubbornly refusing to act on the evidence and is trying to take refuge to a mere mockery of prosecution.
The press (the Christian Science Monitor, the New York Times) has indicated that AIG is much too big to get the same treatment as Enron did. It is pointed out that criminal prosecution broke up the accountant firm of Enron, Arthur Andersen. It is pointed out that there can be no desire to break up AIG. The Christian Science Monitor, "A Top Insurance Company as the New Enron?" (April 01, 2005), at
"Because AIG is so massive and important to the financial world, regulators will have to tread carefully. The company's main business is providing reinsurance, that is, it insures insurance companies. This helps the industry to spread its risk among many large and financially sound companies so a single event does not become a financial disaster for one company.
Also, because of AIG's huge size, lawyers don't think the government will bring a criminal charge against the company as it did for Arthur Andersen, Enron's accountant. The criminal charge was a death sentence for the accountant."
Further, the Christian Science Monitor ventures to predict a bleak future for the insurance giant, AIG:
"Before its legal troubles, AIG had begun an advertising campaign to become more well-known to Americans. Its most recent logo is ‚We know money.' And, it brags it is the financial organization to choose for your ‚great-great-great-great-great grandchild.' Now, lawyers expect it is likely to be fighting class-action lawsuits and irate regulators as it battles to survive.
The apple of dischord is a deal between Greenberg/AIG and another grandee of the American insurance industry, Warren Buffett. Details are reported in the press. This and other deals amount to a $1.77 billion accounting fraud which actually has been admitted by AIG. As a consequence of this fraud and the insurance investigation of Eliot Spitzer, Maurice Greenberg resigned as the all-powerful CEO of AIG on March 15, 2005; and he resigned his position as non-executive AIG Chairman on April 3, 2005.
Until Greenberg's resignation, the Greenberg family (Greenberg Sr. and his two sons Jeffrey and Evan) together with Warren Buffett control the better part of the U.S. insurance industry. Jeffrey Greenberg was CEO and chairman of the world's second-largest insurance broker Marsh & McLennan (resigned in October 2004). Evan Greenberg is President and CEO of Ace Limited, a Bermuda-based insurer. Warren Buffett owns and controls General Reinsurance.
CNN writes about the investigation, Report: AIG CEO Steps Down (March 15, 2005),
"AIG was mentioned in the case brought against Marsh & McLennan by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, but was not charged. But four former AIG executives have entered guilty pleas to criminal charges stemming from the investigation, along with six others from Marsh & McLennan, Zurich American Insurance Co. and ACE.
Last November, AIG agreed to pay $126 million to settle allegations of securities fraud by the SEC and the Justice Department related to three 2001 transactions it made with PNC Financial Services Group Inc. that allegedly helped the Pittsburgh-based banking company artificially inflate its earnings.
Part of the settlement also went to resolve a similar case involving Brightpoint Inc., a Plainfield, Ind., cell phone distributor.
Under that settlement, an independent monitor is examining AIG's books to see if there are any other questionable deals.
AIG, without admitting or denying guilt, also settled civil-fraud charges with the SEC, paying a $10 million fine.
In the latest investigation, AIG has been the focus of a probe by Spitzer, federal prosecutors and the SEC into the use of so-called finite insurance, or financial reinsurance, which critics say could be used to manipulate earnings.
The transaction under investigation took place between AIG and Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s General Reinsurance unit four years ago and apparently was intended to shore up AIG's reserves."
Maurice Greenberg joined AIG in 1960 and became its President in 1967. He became its Chairman in 1989. With Greenberg at the helm, AIG grew from a small company into one of the world's largest and most profitable financial-services company with a market capitalization of $168.5 billion. Greenberg Sr. owns nearly 2% but through offshore companies controls about another 12% of the stock of AIG.
The connection with Warren Buffett is all the more suspicious in light of the substantiated indication of CIA money laundering through a bank partly owned by Berkshire Hathaway, Wells Fargo Bank, and the strange ongoings at the Offutt Air Base on 9-11-1 where Buffett met with President George W. Bush.
According to reports in the New York Times, Eliot Spitzer has stated that the scandal will be settled under civil law without any criminal prosecution or investigation. The is an attempt to defuse a problem of criminal responsibility that to my mind cannot work. In my opinion it is dictated by an egregious conflict of interest of Spitzer and his old law firm of Skadden Arps who do not wish to eliminate a major client, AIG by disclosing the true facts.
The New York Times reports something extremely suspicious about Greenberg, "How a Titan of Insurance Ran Afoul of the Government" (April 4, 2005),
namely Greenberg considering taking the Fifth Amendment:
"By the accounts of people who have spoken with him, Mr. Greenberg, who did not agree to an interview for this article, ranges over bewilderment, rage and selfpity from the turn of events. In recent weeks, he has told A.I.G. directors that his lawyer is advising him to take the Fifth Amendment rather than testify in a broad inquiry, people involved in the case said."
If you read the dossier below, you might consider the following statements by Gretchen Morgenson in the New York Times, "A.I.G.: Whiter Shade of Enron" (April 3, 2005),
to be a nervous newspaper joke:
"Of that we can be sure. A.I.G., after all, is a real company with global operations, generating genuine profits from a variety of financial enterprises. As companies go, Enron was all smoke and mirrors; A.I.G. is substance."
NO! Of one thing we can be sure: If AIG goes down the tubes then the inside terror cell behind 9-11-1 will thus be yanked out of its hiding in secrecy. At the same time those funny little green papers called the dollar will become cherished commodities for cooking and toilet paper.
Can Eliot Spitzer stem the tide? Is it all just mental? We think not...
3. Greenberg and AIG: Background Dossier
This dossier is chapter 10 of the PDF e-book "The Brotherhood of the White Monks",, 310 pages, 2000 by Stefan Grossmann. It presents press materials and internet links about Maurice "Hank" Greenberg that were current in the year 2000.
I would like to familiarize you with the Global Power Cartel. As a case study, let us look into American International Group (AIG), maybe the most powerful insurance and financial groups worldwide with a global presence in more than 150 countries:
(Quotes from: Wall Street Manipulator was Driving Force Behind Marcos Ouster in '86, in: Spotlight Newspaper, June 16, 1997, pp. 4-11, by George Blank; on AIG in China also see The Financial Times, May 22, 1998)
"Maurice 'Hank' Greenberg, the president and chief executive officer of American International Group (AIG), a multi-billion dollar New York-based insurance company ..., is no run-of-the-mill insurance salesman. Since taking over the Shanghai and New York-based insurance business of Cornelius Vander Starr in 1968, Greenberg has emerged as one of the most powerful behind-the-scenes political fixers in the Anglo-American Establishment. He is vice chairman of the New York Council on Foreign Relations. He is a member of the Board of Counselors of the Washington, D. C.-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), which serves, on occasion, as Wall Street's private sector equivalent of the CIA's Directorate of Operations."
[Note: Philip Manuel, the investigator, is a member of the Financial Crimes Task Force of the CSIS, see at]
"Although Greenberg is a lifetime Republican, his name was prominently circulated as a possible replacement for James Woolsey, as director of the Central Intelligence Agency, during the first Clinton administration."
"Greenberg is also the oldest and largest paying client of Henry Kissinger's 'consulting firm,' Kissinger Associates. Greenberg hired Kissinger as his chief international trouble-shooter in 1982, and has been plowing millions of dollars a year into Kissinger's coffers ever since."
"The Kissinger connection has brought Greenberg an inside track on lucrative insurance and banking deals with both Peking and Moscow. In China's financial hub, Shanghai, Greenberg's AIG is the only foreign company with Chinese government approval to sell insurance policies to the city's 13 million native Chinese."
"Greenberg was introduced to C.V. Starr in 1961, after working for nearly a decade for Continental Casualties. The introduction was made by insurance executive Milburn Smith. Seven years later, when Starr died, Greenberg took over the business, according to profiles of Greenberg published in Business Week and Barron's."
"Starr had launched his insurance operation in Shanghai in 1919, first selling policies to the large Russian émigré community, and the British circles who were still kicking around China, following the Opium Wars."
"Sources in the Philippines who are familiar with Starr's early operations, link his success to the fact that he was close with Peter Aleksandrovich Badmayev, a leading Asian representative of the Soviet Cheka's Felix Dzershinskii, and Badmayev's close friend, Sidney Reilly, the so-called 'ace of spies,' who worked for both British and Bolshevik intelligence services."
"By the 1920s and 30s, Starr expanded his Asian insurance operations into Hong Kong, Saigon, Jakarta and the Philippines, and opened a main office in New York City."
"At the outset of World War II, Starr became an intelligence asset of the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the wartime predecessor to the CIA. Starr's OSS links landed him an entry to the emerging postwar 'bankers CIA' apparatus."
"When Greenberg took over from Starr, the firm's reputation for merging business interests with Anglo-American intelligence operations did not diminish."
Who is Maurice Raymond (Hank) Greenberg?
His office is in New York near Wall Street. He is 75 years old (per December 2000) and is a financial legend. His personal net worth has been estimated by Forbes at $1 billion in 1997, and today $4.4 billion. In addition to that, as Chairman and CEO of American International Group (AIG), a most powerful insurance group, he is the lord over a gigantic financial empire located in 150 countries worldwide. The Board and other control organs of AIG are dominated by corporate officials which has led to protests of individual shareholders against AIG's "undemocratic" structure. Greenberg's sons held high positions in this empire but they have left him. Just recently, his son Evan, his father's heir apparent, President and COO, left AIG, without much of an explanation given publicly.
Maurice Raymond "Hank" Greenberg, raised on a New York dairy farm, a self-made man, studied at the University of Miami, Florida and then at the New York Law School. He has been described as a ruthless archetypal capitalist. He is quoted as saying: "All I want in life is an unfair advantage." With a view to AIG's activities and Greenberg's closeness to government in China, he has been characterized as pursuing "amoral insurance interests" (William Safire) and it has been surmised that he would sell his own country for money. Maurice Greenberg is a big political campaign financer for both established parties. His personal views are Republican; but the Philadelphia Inquirer (1996, by Donald L. Barlett and James B. Steele; see at
mentions that he benefits from a deep change of U.S. society into a two class society, one class of those who govern and one class of those who are governed, and that there is no question on which side Maurice Greenberg sees himself.
Maurice Greenberg is said to be a driving force behind the February 1986 downfall of Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos (Spotlight, June 16, 1997, page 6). The Spotlight newspaper, that avid world government watcher (see, writes:
"A January-February 1986 CSIS newsletter revealed that the Asia work of the think tank was bankrolled by million-dollar grants from the C.V. Starr Foundation in New York, chairman Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, whose "global political economic expertise, especially with regard to the East Asia region, has been an important intellectual asset to CSIS."
Greenberg was more than an "intellectual asset" for the Philippines coup plotters. A former high ranking CIA official in the Reagan administration named Hank Greenberg as being intimately involved in the overthrow of Marcos. Greenberg, according to the source, called upon his good friend, William Casey, to add his weight to the plot, and the CIA boss obliged. Greenberg's zeal to dump Marcos was largely a matter of "business." As the owner of the major insurance company in the Philippines, Philippine-American Life Insurance, Greenberg was the underwriter for all of the banks in the Philippines. And Marcos was increasingly finding himself at odds with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other agencies representing the world's big private financing syndicates.
Marcos was resisting the demands of the big international underwriters to impose harsh austerity measures, higher taxes, and to open up the Philippines to unbridled "free trade" looting. The conclusion: Marcos had to go. And, reportedly, Greenberg was the man with all the connections ... including to Moscow and Peking ... to make it happen."
[Note April 2005: In light of the above, I see a possible connection between Greenberg and the money laundering trail out of the Philippines regarding the funding of 9-11.]
To find out who Maurice Greenberg is, look at his empire. Traditionally, more than half of AIG's revenues and profits are made outside the USA Also, AIG's corporate structure is extremely fragmented into different entities worldwide, and therefore impossible to see through for any outsider. A highly fragmented structure was also used by BCCI, the multinational banking group that collapsed in 1991 and under investigation turned out to be the hub of the international black money market.
There is at least one report on secret connections between BCCI, AIG, the Chinese CITIC (the biggest client of Kenneth Starr), the Indonesian Lippo Group, other entities, and William J. Clinton during and after the Whitewater affair (see organigram at;
article published in the March 24, 1997 issue if the Washington Weekly). In the March 17, 1997 issue (see at, the Washington Weekly wrote:
"Whatever AIG is, it appears to be tied into that big, bipartisan, ugly network of intelligence, money laundering, Arkansas, and Communist China."
Specifically with a view to China, the article asks the question:
"Apart from ADFA, where does AIG get its money to fund, among other things, lobbying on behalf of the Chinese government? The answer is not clear, though some indications are available. (1) In 1995, AIG became the first company to be licensed to sell insurance in China. (2) AIG is a client of Kissinger & Associates. It was Henry Kissinger, the former Secretary of State, who advised against harsh sanctions after the Tienanmen Square massacre. "No government in the world would have tolerated having the main square of its capital occupied for eight weeks by tens of thousands of demonstrators," he wrote. The conduct of the students made a crackdown "inevitable", he added. (3) AIG has also been the focus of SEC and BCCI investigator Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau's attention, presumably because of its dumping insurance policies in the U.S. market below cost, to explore its ties to the BCCI. (4) And finally, AIG is headed by Maurice Greenberg, one-time chairman of the NY Federal reserve Bank, and in 1995 a candidate to head the CIA. Greenberg is chairman of the US-China Business Council and lobbied hard (and successfully) for the Clinton administration to sever the link between China's human rights record and renewal of China's Most-Favored-Nation trade status."
Evidence has been hushed up, allegedly, after a bribe list from BCCI became public information in London, U.K. for a few hours, mentioning numerous U.S. Senators and Representatives from both governing parties as receivers of the bribes (see at
(November 17, 1995 - Phone (312) 731-1100 for recorded message.)
Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts,
9800 S. Oglesby Ave [Chicago, IL 60617].
In the crunch in Washington, some forces are gearing up to attack
each other with scandals long kept out of the monopoly press.
For example, in 1991 we publicized exclusive details of the "Bank
of Criminals and Conspirators International" [BCCI]. To promote
their operations worldwide, they bribed public officials,
including in the United States.
If you want to pave the way for vast bank operations in the U.S.,
what do you do? Why naturally, you buy the lawmakers! A hundred
years ago, Rockefeller, to promote business, bought the
Pennsylvania legislature!
So, BCCI bribed or blackmailed both Houses of Congress: 108
members of the House of Representatives and 22 U.S. senators.
Funny thing: when the bank supposedly went under, the bribery
list, for a short period, was a public record in England! *Four*
major international news organizations had the list and verified
it was correct. But the liars and whores of the press kept it
secret. One brave journalist, however, gave us the entire list
and a newspaper published our exclusive story - minus the names.
Here is the reported payoff list of U.S. senators, as of 1990.
Some have since retired or lost elections. Senators....
Steve Symms (Idaho)
Richard Shelby (Alabama) **
Wyche Fowler (Georgia)Alan Dixon (Illinois)
Orrin Hatch (Utah) **
Hank Brown (Colorado) **
Larry Craig (Idaho) **
David Durenberger (Minnesota)
Mark Hatfield (Oregon) **
Howell Heflin (Alabama) **
Daniel Inouye (Hawaii) **
Alfonse D'Amato (New York) **
Wendell Ford (Kentucky) **
Tom Harkin (Iowa) **
Robert Kasten (Wisconsin)
Dan Quayle (Indiana)
Donald Riegle (Michigan)
James Sasser (Tennessee)
Richard Lugar (Indiana) **
Patrick Leahy (Vermont) **
Sam Nunn (Georgia) **
Robert Graham (Florida) **
[** indicates currently in office] [[Note: As of 1995]]
The scheme was done, reportedly, through six LaSalle Street
commodity brokers - the ringleader apparently being GNP
Commodities. At the time, the federal commodity regulator was
Wendy Gramm (that's G-r-a-m-m), wife of Senator Phil Gramm of
Texas. Wendy, reportedly, by extortion, got a piece of the
action. Also shaking them down were officials of the federal
reserve district bank here. Remember: for many years the top
official of the fed, in Chicago, was also boss at the Chicago
Tribune - Stanton Cook.
So, in fact, one of the officials of GNP started to go public,
that if Wendy and the federal reserve did not get off his back,
well, they will be swept away by an "international incident".
The payoff worked through the Chicago Board of Trade, the Chicago
Mercantile Exchange, and other exchanges here. Accounts were set
up, in their name, in Chicago and London - complicated trading,
called "straddles". The money was to disappear here and be
withdrawn in London. Agents of the lawmakers showed up to get the
loot, or false records were created to show the same.
So, it was bribery or blackmail. And BCCI had Congress by their
private parts. Some $5 billion of BCCI funds disappeared in the
bribery/blackmail schemes - secret coded accounts in Switzerland
and the Caymans.
But, funny thing: some super-hackers with links to spy agencies
got the codes and withdrew the money! So, present and former
members of Congress have something to cry about: their loot was
stolen from them - you know, robbing the bank robbers.
Outgoing senator Sam Nunn has reportedly become a sizeable owner
of the successor to BCCI: Pinnacle Banc Group. Their flagship is
First National Bank of Cicero, long dominated by the CIA/Mafia-
linked Bishop Paul Marcinkus, once head of the Vatican Bank.
The Bush White House used the bribery list to push through the
Senate Clarence Thomas for U.S. Supreme Court. On the list were
seven Democrats that pushed the confirmation over the top.
Likewise, Bush used the bribery list to silence the "October
Surprise" subcommittee, in a position to nail George for treason.
(That was the delay of the release of the U.S. hostages to help
put in the Reagan-Bush ticket.)

The Spotlight newspaper (June 16, 1997, page 7) asked whether Greenberg, during his tenure as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York, had any connections with the Russian underground economy:
"The New York Federal Reserve Bank has been functioning as a "printing press" for the Russian Mafia-dominated Moscow banks. New York magazine writer Robert Friedman has reported that, every business day, planeloads of freshly printed $100 bills are flown from JFK Airport in New York to Moscow. These bills, provided by the New York Fed, generate billions of dollars a year in revenues for the U.S. Treasury, and have been a significant factor in the global power grab by Russian organized crime.
The New York Fed, which has been shipping the bills to Russia, via Edmond Safra's Republic National Bank of New York, aggressively defends its "dollarization" program, against charges that the funds are fueling global organized crime.
Bank spokespersons insist that it has no authority or means of determining where the bills go, once they have been delivered to the Moscow banks, which pay for them through offshore accounts in Europe and the Carribean.
When the U.S. government was preparing to issue new $100 bills last year, the Fed conducted a far-reaching advertising campaign in Russia, to assure holders of dollars that they would not have to turn in the old bills, and thereby face having to account for the sources of their wealth.
Linked to Mafia?
Is there any evidence that Greenberg's position on the New York Fed, and the burgeoning "dollar-based" Russian underground economy are in any way related? Perhaps. For one thing, as noted in the accompanying story [on the Philippines], one of Greenberg's closest business partners, according to Manila sources, is Jack Nasser, owner of some of the largest textile factories in the islands of the Philippines. A longtime member of the Syrian Jewish community, now largely based in Switzerland; Brooklyn, New York; and Brazil, Nasser is a longtime partner of Republif National Bank's Edmond Safra."
I am a concerned reader of news. Since nobody has been sued for defamation or slander, I have reason to believe that those politicians and businessmen mentioned may be afraid or compromised to sue. For example,
has been publishing since 1998 with impunity:
"AIG is an insurance company which is one of the biggest money launderers in the world."
Maurice Greenberg may be the most influential individual alive. Moreover, during the Clinton administration, he was Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. He was then nominated as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), however found very little support. Nevertheless, Maurice Greenberg continues his close ties to the intelligence community. See, for example, the voluminous Report:
"Making Intelligence Smarter
The Future of U.S. Intelligence
Report of an Independent Task Force
Sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations
Maurice R. Greenberg, Chairman
Richard N. Haass, Project Director"
Or, consider the fact that Maurice Greenberg co-chaired the "Civil Society Vision, Tribute to Madeleine K. Albright ... The Civil Society Vision Award Dinner" in New York on September 7, 2000. The event was in honor of Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's "leadership in the advancement of international justice and human rights." The Presidents of the USA and of the Czech Republic also attended. (See
Could Greenberg avoid being detected by the control organs of the government?
If, hypothetically, he wanted to (which I am not implying), I believe that a "global individual" like Maurice Greenberg might be able to avoid being detected by the control organs of the government because the government officials are only humans, and because the government itself is controlled by the political process. The political process is controlled by the political financing; and the system of political financing is controlled by its financiers. It is a de facto Global Power Cartel that has been growing since the U.S. Civil War, and more specifically over the last 40 years since President Kennedy's murder and Watergate. Never, of course, would Mr. Greenberg or AIG become involved by doing anything "illegal." In the global field that he pioneers, such distinctions are naïve and outright misleading, as indicated earlier.
Can you give an example for the Global Power Cartel?
AIG has managed an astounding thing: they have had written for themselves parts of U.S. federal tax laws that gave them tax exemptions (Philadelphia Inquirer as quoted above). Here are some details mentioned by the Inquirer:
"AIG won a special provision in the Tax Reform Act of 1986 exempting certain of its operations from a crackdown on foreign tax shelters. Technically, the law fits AIG because AIG was incorporated in Delaware on July 9, 1967, and has its executive offices in New York. That provision and a similar clause written for the Cigna insurance company were worth an estimated $20 million. As far back as 1976, AIG as the prime beneficiary of a section in the Tax Reform Act that exempted AIG and other large insurers from taxes on some of their offshore operations, saving them millions of dollars."
The company has wielded its anti-taxation power in Washington, D. C. for decades. That is evidence that they control the forces that are supposed to regulate them, not vice versa. In addition, don't forget that, geographically, more than 50% of their business is outside the USA, including offshore jurisdictions.
Who is the Global Power Cartel?
The Global Power Cartel is like a mirage, like one of those deceptive visions of beautiful mountains in the desert air. In reality, there are no mountains but complicated mirror effects in different layers of the air. The Global Power Cartel is an entire hidden industry and a product of sophisticated intelligence groups and large amounts of money.
As to the Americans involved, one must remember what Senators John Kerry and Hank Brown found in "A Report to the Committee on Foreign Relations United States Senate" (December 1992, 102d Congress 2d Session Senate Print 102-140, at
"Equally important to BCCI's successful secret acquisitions of U.S. banks in the face of regulatory suspicion was its aggressive use of a series of prominent Americans, beginning with Bert Lance, and continuing with former Defense Secretary Clark Clifford, former U.S. Senator Stuart Symington, well-connected former federal bank regulators, and former and current local, state and federal legislators. Wittingly or not, these individuals provided essential assistance to BCCI through lending their names and their reputations to BCCI at critical moments. Thus, it was not merely BCCI's deceptions that permitted it to infiltrate the United States and its banking system. Also essential were BCCI's use of political influence peddling and the revolving door in Washington."
You mentioned "offshore jurisdictions." What do you mean?
Many insurance companies use offshore jurisdictions and so-called "captive" insurance companies or banks within their organization. That is normally nothing to be worried about. One offshore company is, for example, AIG Insurance Management Services (Guernsey) Limited in Guernsey (Channel Island). In the case of AIG there are a number of additional factors.
For example, Philip Manuel served his client BCCI in 1990 by analyzing their money transfer system (see at,
"BCCI's Criminality", footnote 8). Philip Manuel (and by the way also Marvin Rosen's law firm) are specialized on international financial transactions. Even before the collapse of BCCI in 1991, the self-same Philip Manuel has been working with Cramer's litigators in surveilling Spiro. But the connections, even as to the scanty evidence that has found its way into the media, go much farther.
On January 6, 1995, John Crudele of the New York Post published a column which called attention to a secret financial deal involving Coral Reinsurance on Bermuda, the Arkansas Development and Finance Authority, a project founded at the time by Arkansas state governor William J. Clinton (ADFA) and Maurice Greenberg's American International Group (AIG). The story was only out for a few hours when Swaney received a call from a stranger who told Swaney he had been conducting his own investigation of Coral Insurance and AIG and was surprised to learn that the connections led to people then in the White House. When Swaney asked the stranger to identify himself, he declined to do so, for fear of retaliation. The Ozark Gazette (see at
reports that the anonymous caller had reliable information:
"We will call him Mr. Anonymous. It seems that Mr. Anonymous is an insurance man in New York City ... a competitor of AIG ... and at sometime in the last two years he became very suspicious of AIG because its affiliates were offering insurance at premiums way below market rates. Mr. Anonymous told Swaney that he could not believe that a legitimate insurance company could stay in business offering such low rates. Mr. Anonymous suspected that he was in competition with an illegal enterprise, and began poking around in the affairs of AIG. At some point after that, Mr. Anonymous became frightened, and dropped his investigation, because he believed that the repercussions were damaging his own business. Mr. Anonymous also told Swaney (and John Crudele of the New York Post) that AIG and its relationship with Coral Reinsurance was under investigation by the insurance regulators of Pennsylvania and New York.
Soon after the columns by John Crudele appeared in the New York Post, other media began to be interested in the Coral Reinsurance deal. Business Insurance magazine reported on the Coral deal. An AIG spokesperson denied that AIG had organized Coral Reinsurance. Other industry sources told John Crudele that $450 million dollars had suddenly appeared in Coral's account in just the last two weeks of 1987. Investigators have been unable to identify the source of the cash infusion.
When the long sought after memorandum was finally obtained, it revealed that indeed, AIG had founded Coral Reinsurance.
By the middle of February the stories written by Crudele were attracting attention in the Arkansas press. Andrea Harter of the Democrat Gazette began a month long investigation into the Coral deal. The story appeared March 5, 1995 and revealed even more extensive connections between AIG/ADFA. In the year preceding the purchase of Coral stock by ADFA, an AIG affiliate had managed over one billion dollars worth of ADFA's bonds. Having been founded in 1985 and starting business in 1986, by early 1987 ADFA had only been in business a little over a year. AIG's involvement with that much of their bonds so early in ADFA's history indicates a very strong relationship. Once again, considering that the Arkansas Committee had been told that US Intelligence had indeed laundered money through ADFA, and that the sale of ADFA's bonds was one such vehicle for doing so, Maurice Greenberg's connections to international politics and intelligence was very interesting."

THE SHOW EFFECT  the magic trick!!

We stand today at the dawn of an entirely new age. Man has in his hands a method of disrupting the molecular basis for matter and the ability to split the earth in half on a moments notice. (It gives the term, "scortched-earth policy" a new significance.) The technology that was demonstrated on 911 can split the earth in half or it can be used to allow ALL people to live happily ever after with free energy.
