You can tell a lot about a Senator by how he treats his staff. McCain is a serial abuser.
During my seven years as counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, I heard lots of scuttlebutt about how staffers are treated.
I had no direct contact with McCain until June 2010 at a Town Hall meeting in Tempe for us constituents. His office was here in 1982 when organized crime first put him in Congress.
He moved to the Senate in 1987, just as I was leaving. I know his type by the consistency of his conduct.
Though he’s clearly abusive as a person, he’s also indictable as an asset for performing as the reliably pliable pawn of a foreign nation.
Yet no grand jury has been convened. Nor is there yet any sign of a pending indictment. That speaks volumes for the current condition of the rule of law.
A Quick Exit
Then again, he may resign. He could try to retire into obscurity rather than endure his pending notoriety. At present, resignation seems unlikely.
Then again, we’ve seen how quickly public perceptions can shift.
As praise emerged for The Passion of the Christ, Mel Gibson’s 2004 blockbuster film, Hollywood operatives began to sharpen their swords. Like Gibson, McCain could be transformed into a “controversial figure.”
He too could become mired in scandal, shredding his image and imploding his career. If it can happen to Mel, why not McCain? The parallels are striking yet strikingly different.
John McCain is a political star: a pop-culture political icon. Like Mel, people recognize him.
Gibson’s star is fading fast as he’s morphed into a “has been.” His fans don’t get a vote on that.
McCain barely escaped a “honey pot” scandal with lobbyist Vickie Iseman. Mel’s honey pot was a Russian beauty. Watch his career go kaput.
Was this Gibson’s Monica Lewinsky moment? Was this akin to Lyndon Johnson having an affair with Israeli-Irgun operative Mathilde Krimthe night the Six-Day War began?
Timing is everything.
Controversy may yet engulf John McCain. But don’t hold your breath. Those who produced and protect the McCain brand are those destroying the Gibson image.
What is it about Israel that outrages Gibson and enthralls McCain? Why is this Arizona Senator so loyal to a nation so long disloyal to the U.S.?
But for his seven homes in Arizona, a local rumor suggests that McCain could relocate to Israel.
A favored retreat for Russian oligarchs, the Zionist enclave ranks first worldwide as organized crime’s non-extradition venue of choice.
Soon after the financial pillaging of Russia in the mid-1990s, six of the top seven oligarchs qualified for Israeli citizenship. Figure the odds on that.
McCain should feel right at home.
Cyprus is the tax haven of choice for this transnational syndicate. Its banks are welcoming and its officials are happy to issue Jewish birth certificates for $5,000.
Displacing an indigenous Greek syndicate, the Russian-Jewish mafia now vacations in Cyprus, an easy 55-minute flight from Tel Aviv.
Ask John McCain about this arrangement. He met abroad with Russian-Jewish oligarch Oleg Deripaska. They even dined together in Switzerland with Lord Rothschild V.
Deripaska was banned from the U.S. At age 40, he had amassed personal wealth estimated at $40 billion defrauded from the Russian people.
Will John McCain Retire to Israel?
As with McCain’s political career, Deripaska typifies how organized crime operates across time and distance. As a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, McCain is well briefed. He’s also dined with the experts. Who could know better?
So why does McCain remain in Arizona? Perhaps it’s love for his dogs.
You can tell a lot about a Senator by how he treats his dogs. Mitt Romney’s presidential quest ended when he put his dog in a luggage rack on top of his car.
Does McCain keep dogs at each of his seven homes? Are there cats at some; dogs at others?
If it’s true that McCain’s marriage is on the rocks, has he negotiated pet visitation rights?
Will his challenge to their pre-nuptial agreement prevail after almost three decades of marriage? Or will Cindy succeed in excluding him entirely from her $200 million estate?
Could that explain why he’s courting senior operatives of trans-generational organized crime?
It that why he spends so little time on national security issues of interest to the armed services? Is his retirement planning distracting him from matters of concern to the military?
John McCain needs an intervention. Those who know him must persuade him to resign.
Or a U.S. attorney can determine whether he’s criminally complicit—or just profoundly incompetent.
His conduct suggests he should not be in a federal campaign. He should be in a federal prison.
Who has an even lower opinion of McCain than his staff, his dogs and his fellow Senators? Answer: our senior military leaders. What does that tell you?
I am a constituent of Arizona Senator John McCain, a 2008 presidential contender. I reside in the Congressional District where he ran for Congress four years before the expected 1986 retirement of Senator Barry Goldwater. McCain’s career was modeled after that well-known Republican maverick.
McCain describes himself as the leader of the party of Abraham Lincoln and maverick Ronald Reagan. Reagan first emerged on the national political scene in a theme-setting speech he gave at the 1964 Republican nominating convention where Goldwater became the party leader.
I knew Goldwater, albeit slightly. I served for seven years as counsel to the Senate Finance Committee, leaving in 1987, the same year he retired. It was always a pleasure to hear him crank up his muscle car festooned with whip antennae to service his ham radio habit.
McCain now holds Goldwater’s Senate seat. Though branded a “maverick,” that’s no more accurate than the phony “hero” status in which McCain wraps himself along with the flag—which brings me back to the point of this account.
I had not met McCain until early June at a town hall meeting in Tempe, Arizona. He came to the Senate in 1987 just as I went into law practice with retiring Senators Russell Long of Louisiana, my boss, and Paul Laxalt of Nevada who chaired Reagan’s presidential campaigns.
At the town hall meeting, I sat upfront to ask “my” Senator a question. That question was informed by seven years of full-time research—by a constituent—into the impact on national policy-making of transnational organized crime, particularly in Arizona.
I will return in this series to an account of how this maverick’s political career was a product of organized crime. That background is chronicled in Guilt By Association (2008) where, as I explained to McCain, I took three chapters just to summarize his mob-related history.
In Arizona, his history is seldom mentioned except to wrap him in Old Glory. That silence is not without good reason. Don Bolles was the last person to write about the criminal syndicate that recruited McCain to replace Goldwater. Bolles was rewarded for his research with six sticks of dynamite under his car. He lost both legs and an arm.
Before his death 11 days later, he identified John Adamson who placed the charge. Adamson, in turn, identified Kemper Marley, the statewide liquor magnate and employer of Gene Hensley, John McCain’s father-in-law to be.
Bolles also named the mafia and Emprise, a New York sports franchise with which Hensley and his brother were associated through a racetrack they acquired in New Mexico.
By all credible accounts, this mob hit was ordered by Marley after a Bolles’ story forced his resignation from the state racing commission. New Mexico state police chronicled the connection between Marley and the racing wire service. Since the founding of the National Crime Syndicate in 1929, that service linked organized crime’s far-flung gambling operations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Cuba.
Its origins trace to Chicagoan Moses “Moe” Annenberg, the father of Walter Annenberg, Ronald Reagan’s “best friend for 50 years” according to former First Lady Nancy Reagan.
The same Ashkenazi “Chicago Outfit” that produced the early career of “conservative” Ronald Reagan also produced “liberal” Barack Obama when he first gained political prominence as an activist with Chicago’s Annenberg Education Challenge. The grandfather and the great-grandfather of the top fundraiser for Obama were lawyers for The Outfit.
In truth, Bolles barely scratched the surface. The same outfit that put McCain in office also brought to Washington Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, a former governor of Arizona and prior to that, the state’s attorney general.
Christian-Zionist Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona teamed up with John McCain and Jewish-Zionist Senator Joe Lieberman to market the phony intelligence that took us to war in Iraq.
Thus my concern when I asked that McCain explain to his constituents why he met abroad with Russia-Jewish oligarch Oleg Deripaska who, by age 40, had amassed $40 billion in assets defrauded from the Russia people.
First McCain denied meeting him other than at an annual conference in Davos, Switzerland. When pressed, he conceded that he and Deripaska shared a private dinner with Lord Rothschild V. At the time, Deripaska was banned from the U.S. due to his ties to Russian organized crime.
McCain declined to explain why he met with this Ashkenazi mobster. Deripaska married into the family of Russian president Boris Yeltsin to perpetrate a national-scale fraud. Until our subprime mega-fraud, the financial pillaging of Russia was the largest heist in history.
Realizing he had said too much by revealing the Rothschild dinner, McCain quickly changed the subject.
What was my impression as a constituent?
Though stunned at the palpable weakness of his character, it was oddly comforting to hear him concede his role as an Evil Doer.
Phil Angelides serves as chairman of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission appointed by the leadership of the House and Senate. I informed him June 8th of evidence confirming the presence of organized crime in looting the nation’s pension plans. As Senate Finance Committee counsel, 1980-87, the pension area was a central focus of my work.
I was also familiar with his role, while State Treasurer of California (elected in 1998 and again in 2002), as an ex officio member of the board of the nation’s first and third largest public pension plans, both in California. The vice-chairman is Bill Thomas, a former Congressman and chairman of the House Committee on Ways & Means, the committee in charge of pension legislation in the House of Representatives.
Thus I was initially heartened at the interest of Mr. Thomas. At his request, I was happy to offer brief introductory testimony (recorded at the Commission office) and to follow up with a written submission (below). As a good faith investigation would confirm, transnational organized crime has been treating these “funds under management” as a means to line their own pockets—akin to the “casino skim” from the early days of the national crime syndicate.
The oral testimony was not well received. Further, it appears that confirmed facts in the written testimony were not pursued. Had the evidence been pursued consistent with the Commission’s charter, investigators would have by now arranged for testimony from three individuals who are firsthand witnesses to the sophisticated modus operandi by which this looting proceeds in plain sight yet, to date, with impunity—to the detriment of retirees, future retirees and Americans at large. Those witnesses were not contacted and a follow-up inquiry call was not returned.
Thus the question: for whom is Phil Angelides working?
Oftentimes, the political past offers clues to present behavior. In this case, it was while serving as chair of the California Democratic Party that he oversaw the first-ever election to the U.S. Senate of two Jewish females from the same state the same year (1992): Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein who chairs the Senate Committee on Intelligence.
As referenced in Guilt By Association, the first release in the Criminal State series, it was “Chicago Outfit” money that migrated from California to dominate the Democratic Party, the Hollywood studios and the Republican Party.
Both the grandfather and the great-grandfather of Chicagoan Penny Pritzker, Barack Obama’s top fundraiser, were lawyers for organized crime. Chicago’s Crown family (ne Krinsky) share a similar lineage in Ashkenazi organized crime while also owning a quarter interest in General Dynamics, arguably the nation’s largest corporate beneficiary both of the War on Terrorism and taxpayer outlays for Homeland Security.
Boxer is best known for pressing in 2010 for a Senate resolution declaring an “unbreakable bond” with Israel as a means to assert the Senate’s loyalty to the Zionist enterprise. No one has yet fully assessed the impact of today’s version of the National Crime Syndicate and its impact on: (a) the nation’s pension plans, (b) how the U.S. was induced to war in the Middle East on false intelligence, and (c) the relationship between the two.
A good faith investigation of the facts provided to Mr. Angelides would have clarified that relationship. Thus the question: for whom is Californian Phil Angelides working?
Rather than follow the facts wherever they may lead (per the Commission’s charter), he and Mr. Thomas chose another course. The 911 Commission chose a similar course when its leaders chose not to investigate this same evidentiary trail despite the fact that both Chairman Tom Kean and Vice-Chairman Lee Hamilton were provided a similar evidentiary trail on April 12, 2004, as was Executive Director Phillip Zelikow. How do I know that? I hand-delivered that evidence to ensure it was signed for at the 911 Commission office.
Then as now, the challenge for representative government lies in how best a long-deceived citizenry can ensure that “our” government acts consistent with the facts and in compliance with the rule of law. That course of action must be distinguished from acting consistent with what officials may believe to be true or what they may need to believe is true.
As an example of what can be proven by a good faith investigation by this Commission (or by the 911 Commission), these two analyses confirm the gravity of the ongoing capital crimes being aided and abetted by those—such as Messrs. Angelides and Thomas—who decline to follow the facts—wherever they may lead:
The Real Origins of Barack Hussein Obama – from Veterans Today
These accounts were provided in April 2004 to the 911 Commission. The 911 Commission interviewed more than 1200 people but refused to speak with James M. Rockefeller. In similar fashion, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission has thus far declined to take the testimony of Mr. Rockefeller or Ron Burd, his attorney since 1992 despite its direct relevance to the mandate set in the Commission charter.
The written testimony to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission appears below along with the cover letter to Mr. Angelides and a summary of supporting exhibits provided on DVD to Chairman Angelides and to Commission investigator Bruce McWilliams. Note the parallels throughout to the 911 Commission whose report has since been disavowed not only by its leadership and several members but also by senior staff.
As with accountability for the false intelligence that induced the U.S. to war on fixed intelligence, accountability for this ongoing financial crisis commences with ensuring that this Commission conducts its investigation consistent with its Congressional mandate to follow the facts wherever they may lead. If the facts underlying this financial crisis are followed in good faith, they will lead to the same trans-generational criminal syndicate that took the U.S. to war on false pretenses.
Those who fail to follow these facts can rightly be accused of giving aid and comfort to an enemy. They can also rightly be charged with adhering to an enemy by failing to protect this nation from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. In short, the failure to follow this evidentiary trail — wherever it may lead — suggests complicity in an ongoing form of treason.

Transnational Organized Crime at Work in Financial Crisis
You and I spoke briefly June 8th at the “America’s Future Now” conference where I informed you of evidence confirming the presence of organized crime in this latest financial crisis. I also explained that, as Senate Finance Committee counsel (1980-87), I helped craft federal law that grew funds under management from $800 billion in 1980 to $16.6 trillion by April 2007.
For the transnational criminal syndicate I have researched for the past seven years, that pool of money has been treated similar to the casino skim. The research and analysis pivoted off the firsthand experience of James M. Rockefeller who has profiled this criminal syndicate from the inside since 1982. Key portions of that experience are summarized on the enclosed DVD.
You urged that I contact investigator Chris Seefer. Bruce McWilliams requested that I stop by Commission offices for a brief interview on June 11th. In that recorded interview I urged that investigators interview Mr. Rockefeller and Ronald P. Burd, his counsel since 1992. Neither man has heard from the Commission. Mr. McWilliams sent a letter to me dated June 16th that read: “If additional information is needed, the Commission will not hesitate to reach out to you.”
I left with Mr. McWilliams a highlighted copy of Guilt By Association, the first release in the Criminal State series. Enclosed is a copy for your review—tabbed and highlighted. Topical analyses are found on the Criminal State website. The DVD features exhibits chronicling this ongoing criminality. Attached is a summary of those exhibits.
Mr. Rockefeller and I followed up with emails to Mr. McWilliams. Mr. Rockefeller included names and phone numbers of knowledgeable insiders for Mr. McWilliams to contact. In addition, Mr. Rockefeller and I provided several relevant email attachments on which I trust Mr. McWilliams briefed you along with the outcome of those confirming phone calls.
As I explained in the interview, the consistency of the fact patterns confirms that Mr. Rockefeller was repeatedly drawn into the most senior nodes in this node-and-network system of transnational organized crime. In those networks, the operatives profiled were pre-staging or orchestrating large scale financial frauds and/or geopolitical manipulations.
One key component stands out above all others in the course of chronicling these ongoing operations: the confidence of the perpetrators that they will not be held accountable.
Attached are Mr. McWilliams June 16th response and the emails described above along with an op-ed by Mr. Rockefeller published in the interim in Arab News and elsewhere titled, “Helen Thomas—a casualty of Zionist duplicity.” Let me briefly describe its relevance to this inquiry.
The intelligence failures that enabled 911 were widely described as a “dot disconnect.” The 911 Commission has since acknowledged that its report failed in key areas to make those connections, particularly when evidence pointed to the U.S.-Israeli relationship.
Doubtless the American public is heartened to know that this Commission is mandated to integrate all aspects of this crisis without boundaries, to move in directions that might constrain others, and to pursue the evidence wherever it leads. This submission meets that broad mandate in the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009.
If the Commission will connect the dots, the cause of these crises will become transparent and syndicate operatives apparent. For example, Appendix A describes how Mr. Rockefeller was drawn into a network of relationships that included Katherine Hapka, founder of Rhythmns NetConnections, the first stock used in the Enron fraud. Mr. McWilliams was given the name and phone number of a witness to confirm that account.
Appendix B describes proceedings pending before the State Bar of Arizona. Those proceedings confirm how the law is currently being deployed to obstruct an investigation that would prove systemic criminality, including the common source of frauds under investigation by the Commission. Investigate the circumstances surrounding those ongoing proceedings and the modus operandi deployed more broadly will become apparent.
As an example of the lengthy premeditation and ongoing criminality that can be proven with good faith engagement, review the two attached commentaries chronicling geopolitical manipulations into which Mr. Rockefeller was routinely drawn:
- “The Truth About America and Pakistan” from Veterans Today
- “Zionist Dominance in the Obama Presidency” from Veterans Today
As with the financial mega-frauds into which he was drawn, Mr. Rockefeller was also drawn into senior nodes of syndicate operatives pre-staging a geopolitical mega-fraud by which U.S. decision-makers were induced with fraudulent intelligence to order an invasion of Iraq.
[See “War in Iraq Could Have Been Prevented” on DVD.]
The modus operandi deployed in frauds that corrupt both private and public sector decision-making: the displacement of facts with what “the mark” can be induced to believe. The only modern component of this ancient form of fraud is the technological means to deceive on a national and global scale. Therein lies the core cause of the frauds now under investigation.
Thus the dominance of syndicate operatives in what Defense Secretary Robert Gates describes as the “in between” domains—between a targeted populace (“the mark”) and the facts required both for reliable markets and for systems of governance reliant on informed choice.
The fact-displacing corruption that plagues political governance also corrupts corporate governance. Regardless of facts on the ground, executives are mandated to maximize those values calculable in money—a critical in-between domain. Non-monetary values are routinely disregarded and displaced—by consensus design. That design, in turn, is reinforced by an executive compensation system wed to financial returns.
Widespread belief in this consensus framework serves as the “operating system” that enables systemic frauds. Whether financial or geopolitical, the fraud modus operandi remains the same.
Much of today’s financial and economic crisis can be traced to a “generally accepted truth” (aka a consensus belief) that generates predictably dysfunctional results—as chronicled at page 6, below. Only recently are those affected able to discern the ruinous impact of this widely shared belief on those values most essential to healthy and sustainable communities and nations—such as civil cohesion, fiscal foresight and environment sustainability.
A focus on symptoms alone (such as the rampant fraud accompanying this consensus mindset) will fail to fulfill the Commission’s mandate to address core causes. The foundational cause is the systemic displacement of facts with fabricated beliefs. Absent a systemic diagnosis, the prescription is destined to fall short of what is required to protect the American people
By focusing on a common enabling factor found in these diverse frauds, the materials address each of the 22 substantive areas of inquiry related to the financial crisis.
Please ensure that interviews with Messrs. Rockefeller and Burd are scheduled by July 15th when these materials will be posted on the Criminal State website. With good faith engagement, this problem can be solved.
Thank you for your service.

Appendix A: A Portal into Nonlinear Criminality
The nonlinear nature of this criminality has long enabled a transnational criminal syndicate to operate in plain sight yet non-transparently and, to date, with legal impunity.
Absent a good faith investigation of how the U.S. was subjected to serial mega-frauds (including the S&L fraud, the Enron collapse and the dot.com crash), the Commission will fail in its mission to identify the domestic and global causes of the current financial and economic crisis.
In the financial domain, Mr. Rockefeller was drawn into the most senior nodes of those active in the Savings & Loan fraud. Likewise for the Enron fraud where, for example, he was drawn into the circles of Katherine Hapka, founder of Rhythmns NetConnections, the first stock used in the special purpose entities deployed to perpetrate that fraud. Ms. Hapka was a close friend of Bernard Ebbers, CEO of the massive accounting fraud known as WorldCom.
With less than $1 million in sales, Citicorp telecom analyst Jack Grubman valued Rhythmns at $4 billion. The day this DSL carrier went public (with its Chief Financial Officer in Tel Aviv), its market capitalization topped $9 billion. Hapka’s stake was valued at ~$228 million.
The consistency of the fact patterns confirms that none of these sophisticated mega-frauds “just happened.” Each was pre-staged and orchestrated over a lengthy period by the trans-generational criminal syndicate chronicled in these accounts. That same syndicate took the U.S. to war on false pretenses—another mega-fraud.
The Commission cannot make practical suggestions without first grasping the systemic nature of these serial frauds and their common source. Corrective action is impossible without acknowledging that much of this criminality is imbedded in nonlinear operations that require lengthy pre-staging. That pre-staging often requires changes to law and/or regulations—as with the S&L fraud, the “too-big-to-fail” effects of loosening the standards in Glass-Steagall and the fraud-enabling impact of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act.
To solve this problem also requires a grasp of how control frauds can proceed in plain sight with the help of “assets” who may not be fully aware of their role in such operations.
In 1995, Mr. Rockefeller was drawn into a node of senior operatives that included Carl Lindner of Cincinnati-based American Financial Group. Charles Keating served as general counsel before relocating to Phoenix as the “face” on a control fraud managed by Drexel Burnham Lambert operatives Michael Milken in Beverly Hills and Leon Black in New York (now Apollo Management).
[For control frauds, see William K. Black in the index to Guilt By Association. See also
“Boston Globe Treason memo” on DVD and review the exhibits, including “Poland Fraud,”
“Corsi-related photos” and a timeline in the memo at pp. 17-25.]
Guilt By Association describes in brief how Mr. Rockefeller was first drawn at age six into the circles of California political operative Eli Broad whose influence on Senator Alan Cranston (of the “Keating 5”) is chronicled at pp. 43-46. Note also the Broad relationship to AIG—into whose circles of influence Mr. Rockefeller was drawn on three separate occasions. Note at page 46 a post-911 surge of $40 billion in AIG’s market capitalization.

- “Warren Buffet—Wall Street’s Teflon Don?” (syndicate payoff to a rating agency?)
- “Is the ‘Times Square Terrorist’ an Asset of Organized Crime?” (nonlinear criminality)
When lengthy pre-staging is combined with the nonlinear/nontransparent nature of these operations, their complexity can be daunting. Thus the need for Commission staff to investigate ongoing frauds (see below) as typical of how such criminality can proceed in plain sight and—as in Arizona—with the complicity of local, state and federal law enforcement.
Micro Frauds Mirror Macro Criminality
The enclosed DVD includes a summary of serial frauds perpetrated on Arizona resident Ronald Burke, a colleague of Mr. Rockefeller since 1973. Those frauds, staged two decades apart, involved a common perpetrator and a common purpose. They remain ongoing. Mr. Burke is one of several professionals close to Mr. Rockefeller whose personal resources were drained to deplete funds that may otherwise have been available to support this work.
In every incident chronicled over the past seven years of research, each “micro” fraud provided a template reflecting how “macro” frauds proceed in a similar fashion—with lengthy pre-staging and nonlinear orchestration. By investigating the Burke fraud, the Commission will confirm how mega-frauds are routinely perpetrated over lengthy periods by this same syndicate.
The Commission will reach no useful conclusion unless its leadership can explain to a defrauded public—simply and clearly—the common components of this systemic criminality.
Chapter 6 in Guilt By Association explains how this economic crisis flows “downstream” from a widely shared “consensus” mindset. That widely shared belief, in turn, is typical of how frauds become systemic as criminal operations are enabled by changes in law consistent with lawmakers’ misplaced faith in that flawed mindset. Should the Commission address only the downstream effects, its inaction will leave intact the upstream cause.
Consensus-model financial dynamics guarantee the concentration of wealth and income, thereby undermining both democracies and markets—in the name of financial freedom as a proxy for personal freedom. As proxies for the American people, you and Bill Thomas need to explain—with confidence—that within this consensus model financial framework we will never experience an era of broadly shared prosperity. And finance, as presently framed, will never become a suitable means to serve the economy and society either justly or sustainably.
The multi-decade fraud against Mr. Burke originated in an operating agreement and flowed downstream from there. Likewise for the fraud that enabled serial financial crises: each crisis was enabled “upstream” by a consensus-model “operating agreement” that evolved—with the help of consensus-framed changes in law—to become common commercial practices.
[See Appendix B: A Micro Portal into a Macro Fraud.]
In effect, the law is being deployed to perpetrate financial fraud on a national and global scale. Unless the Commission identifies this foundational cause, its efforts will not protect the American people.
< ——- >
Here are the financial dynamics that must be clarified for a long-misinformed public:
Sources of Funds – Today’s Closed System of Finance
See Guilt By Association (2008), pp. 103-121.
The Fraud is the Consensus Mindset
Based on these “closed system” dynamics, the concentration of wealth and income was certain to increase at a steady pace. With globalization of the “Washington consensus,” results seen in the U.S. were mirrored abroad as economies worldwide experienced record inequality:
- From 2003 to 2005 the increase in combined income for the top 1% of Americans exceeded by 37% the total income of the poorest 20%.
- Incomes for the top 1% grew an average $465,700 (42.6%) each.
- Incomes for the bottom 20% grew an average $200 (1.3%).
- By 2005 Americans claiming more than $1 million in annual income (less than one quarter of 1% of U.S. taxpayers) claimed 47% of total annual income gains.
- By 2006 the top 1% of U.S. families claimed the largest share of national income since 1929.
- Adjusted for inflation, from 2002 to 2006, incomes of the bottom 99% grew at less than 1% annually.
- The wealth of the Forbes 400 richest Americans grew by $290 billion in 2006 alone, for a combined wealth of $1.54 trillion in 2007.
- By 2008 the minimum personal wealth for inclusion on the Forbes list was $1.3 billion, up from $91 million in 1982.
- The average CEO of a large U.S. company was paid $10.8 million in 2006—364 times the pay of one of their employees—as much pay each day as an employee takes home in a year.
- Of the $619 billion growth in America’s total income for 2007, 42% went to those who made more than $1 million in 2006.
- Incomes for the top 1% grew an average $465,700 (42.6%) each.
Similar wealth and income patterns accompany the spread of this consensus model abroad:
- By 2007, India’s 40 billionaires had amassed a combined wealth of $351 billion, up from $170 billion in 2006.
- In 2006, China had 15 billionaires. The following year, their ranks had swollen to more than 100. By January 2008, China Daily reported 146 billionaires.
- In 2008, Forbes reported 1,125 billionaires worldwide worth $4.4 trillion, up from 946 worth $3.5 trillion in 2007, an increase from 476 billionaires worth $1.4 trillion in 2003.
- In Indonesia, 61.7% of the country’s stock market value is held by its 15 richest families. The comparable figure for the Philippines is 55.1%, and 53.3% for Thailand.
- The richest 2% of adults worldwide own more than 50% of global assets, while the poorest half of the adult population holds 1% of worldwide wealth.
To do anything practical about this systemic fraud requires the Commission to acknowledge that not only does today’s “closed system” not work, it never could have worked. Plug any mainstream policy initiative into this system (left, right or centrist) and the end result is the same.
No matter how many generations of new technology are financed—green, clean or otherwise—that new wealth (“well being”) will become concentrated in the hands of a few.
By our advocacy of this dysfunctional model, the U.S. ensured the emergence of oligarchies everywhere “our” model was implemented. The consensus mindset ensures a systemic transfer of wealth from lower and middle income-earners to the topmost one percent—even without the assistance of the frauds and abuses that catalyzed formation of the Commission.
Who Oversees the Overseers?
Those charged with correcting this financial and economic crisis have long been key enablers of this “consensus” corruption. The transnational syndicate profiled in these materials stripped at least $1 Trillion out of Russia according to former President Mikhail Gorbachev. Six of the top seven Russian oligarchs (84%) qualify for Israeli citizenship in a nation, like the U.S., whose population is less than 2% Ashkenazi.
[See Chapter 5 in Guilt By Association: “The Presidency and Russian Organized Crime.”]
The easy way out would be for the Commission to recommend “band aids” similar to those comprising the bulk of the financial reforms under consideration by the Congress. Those consensus-framed “fixes” operate well downstream of the consensus-assured systemic criminality chronicled in these accounts.
The model itself must be challenged if we hope to see America returned to its own people.
Detailed complaints confirmed Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi-style fraud yet no one took it seriously until the crisis reached critical mass. Similarly, as Mr. Rockefeller informed Mr. McWilliams, had these facts been engaged in good faith after his return from Iraq in February 1997, there’s a high probability that 911 might have been prevented. It’s now clear that the invasion of Iraq (reliant on fraudulent intelligence re Iraqi WMD) could have been prevented.

Why did no one at the SEC engage Mr. Madoff despite facts evidencing an ongoing massive fraud? Why can no one—even now—engage the facts in Mr. Rockefeller’s files?
Why is the “dot disconnect” regarding Mr. Rockefeller’s experience still ongoing almost nine years after 911? If the Commission investigates all aspects of this crisis without boundaries, the common components in this systemic corruption will become apparent.
If the Commission follows the facts wherever they lead, it will become clear that the criminal syndicate responsible for inducing the U.S. to war in Iraq on false beliefs also orchestrated this financial and economic crisis in the U.S. As with a war commenced on false beliefs, these frauds find at their core false beliefs.
To betray, one must first befriend. To defraud, one must first create a relationship of trust.
Is the ongoing lack of engagement due to the fact that Mr. Rockefeller’s records confirm federal capital crimes, including ongoing systemic treason?
Will this Commission take the same path as the 911 Commission and create an appearance of useful action while, in practical effect, doing little to protect the American people?
Or will you and Vice Chairman Thomas insist that the Commission acknowledge a systemic problem before this financial and economic crisis destroys our national security?
Content in Context
Mr. Rockefeller is prepared to testify to his multi-decade experience profiling this criminal syndicate from the inside. Ronald P. Burd, his counsel since 1992, is also prepared to testify as am I. We can identify other parties with firsthand experience who can offer confirming testimony. Mr. McWilliams was provided several names and phone numbers for that purpose.
When I agreed to take on this project after meeting Mr. Rockefeller at a venue in London in November 2002, I initially had little evidence with which to work. I began by asking if there was any person or firm with whom he interacted three times. Without hesitation, he mentioned A.I.G.
Mr. McWilliams was provided the name of Lloyd Wander and a phone number for Minnesotan Randy Schwake who is familiar both with that A.I.G.-related incident and with a 1995 Jerome Corsi/Carl Lindner fraud perpetrated in Poland. FBI agents in the Minneapolis office sought to frame Mr. Rockefeller for that Polish fraud after his return from Iraq in February 1997 with intelligence that could have prevented the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
At the end of WWII, the U.S. was home to 50% of the world’s productive power. That financially dominant position ensured that our bonds would dominate global financial markets for at least two generations. For the transnational criminal syndicate identified in these accounts, debt is always the prize and war is routinely deployed as a means to create debt.
Consensus model monetary policy ensured we could sustain for decades a global “asymmetry” in living standards by issuing debt to stimulate demand even as our purchasing power outpaced our capacity to produce. By borrowing to produce weaponry and wage war, we created the appearance of real jobs and purchasing power—without the profit-inhibiting downside of producing consumer useful goods and services able to compete for those consumer dollars.
As the component of our economic output traceable to financial products steadily outpaced physical production as a proportion of GDP, the U.S. economy was steadily hollowed out—from within. With consensus-model metrics unable to distinguish the production of goods from “bads” and with numerical models designed to reward “financial creativity,” the stage was set for systemic frauds to succeed on both a national and global scale.
As “due diligence” became divorced from any reality other than financial, frauds progressed on “autopilot” as the real-world economy entered a period of steady decline that included a steady worsening of fiscal woes at the local, state and national level. Long obscured by deceptive accounting, pension commitments promise to catalyze the next financial and economic crisis.
The dynamics underlying the current crisis point to a form of financial warfare being waged on the U.S. by those made transparent in the records chronicling Mr. Rockefeller’s experience. Those he profiled share a common faith tradition. Guilt By Association (at page one) explains how those subscribing to that tradition routinely deploy game theory to wage war in plain sight—by way of deception.
At the heart of this deception lies a shared mindset that—by law—grants priority to values calculable in money—often to the detriment of those values essential for healthy and sustainable communities. Thus the systemic perils associated with the ~$17 trillion in funds under management incentivized with an annual fiscal subsidy in excess of $150 billion.
Absent good faith engagement and an in-depth investigation of the facts pivoting off Mr. Rockefeller’s lengthy firsthand experience, this Commission will join the ranks of other official entities that chose not to deal with the facts. To date, those who refused to engage these facts have given aid and comfort to parties perpetrating serial frauds that have weakened the U.S. economy and systematically undermined U.S. national security.
On April 12, 2004, I hand-carried a lengthy memo to the 911 Commission offices. Copies were signed for on behalf of the Chairman, the Vice Chairman and Executive Director Philip Zelikow. The memo was addressed to National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and included much of the evidence on the enclosed DVD.
Though the Commission interviewed more than 1,200 people, Mr. Rockefeller was not contacted. After the report was published, Chairman Tom Kean and Vice Chairman Lee Hamilton expressed regret that they failed to hold hearings on the motivation for 911—particularly the role of the U.S.-Israeli relationship.
Commission members and senior staff expressed dissatisfaction with the report, including the evidence-gathering process. As Chairman, you and Vice Chairman Thomas could face a similar backlash if, like the 911 Commission, the evidence-gathering process fails to identify the common cause of these mega-frauds—for fear of offending the Israel lobby.
The lengthy pre-staging of these frauds required that legislative leaders amend federal laws to enable this financial and economic crisis. I urge that you consult the 911 Commission leaders about the source of the objections to hearings on the motivation for 911. Do Messrs. Kean and Hamilton now wish they had pursued the facts—wherever they lead?

Choosing to Follow the Facts
On April 30, 2004, Florida Governor Jeb Bush replied to Mr. Rockefeller’s April 12, 2004 correspondence [See letter on the enclosed DVD.] In August 2004, the Fresno Police Department sought to discredit Mr. Rockefeller by subjecting him to an involuntary psychiatric incarceration after deceiving him with an offer of assistance regarding the ongoing criminal stalking to which he continues to be subjected.
Thereafter, acting on the appearance of good faith, Mr. Rockefeller relocated to south Florida and sought the assistance offered by Gov. Bush in his letter. Instead, Mr. Rockefeller was stalked virtually non-stop with the complicity of local law enforcement and clear signs of cooperation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
On April 30, 2005, Governor Bush called Dr. Glenn Olds at his home in Oregon and spoke to him for a half hour. After numerous instances of serial criminal stalking in Florida, including an attempt on Mr. Rockefeller’s life (by forcing his car into a bridge abutment), operative Carol Barr induced Mr. Rockefeller to relocate to remote Gila County, Arizona with an offer to advise her on a paid basis.
I agreed to join him in July 2005 in a rental property offered by Ms. Barr without charge so that we could complete the research and fine-tune the analyses featured in Guilt By Association.
Dr. Olds served as Mr. Rockefeller’s senior adviser from 1994 until his death in March 2006. An adviser to four presidents (two of each party) and a confidant to four of the five third-generation Rockefeller brothers, Dr. Olds accompanied Messrs. Corsi and Rockefeller on a Carl Lindner-funded trip to Poland in 1995. At his death, Dr. Olds had been a friend of former president G.H.W. Bush for 59 years. After Dr. Olds fully grasped what could be proved with these facts, he summed up his assessment as follows: “I am stunned at the depth of the treason.”
An informed public will draw the same conclusion. While a referral to the Department of Justice is clearly mandated by these facts, keep in mind that Attorney General Eric Holder previously served as counsel to Carl Lindner, a key Zionist operative identified in numerous venues.
[See Lindner in the index to Guilt By Association; see also
“Poland Fraud” and “Corsi-related photos” on DVD.]
As Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration, Mr. Holder supported the 2001 pardon of Marc Rich after being lobbied by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. In 1987, Mr. Rockefeller was drawn into the circles of Rich partner Pincus Green. Those circles included Ivan Boesky, a co-conspirator of Michael Milken who oversaw a major S&L control fraud at Lincoln S&L involving Charles Keating, former Lindner counsel.
It is just such “fields within fields…within fields” of relationships that enable this syndicate to operate openly yet, to date, undetected as its nonlinear operations progress in plain sight.
[See pp. 44-47 of Guilt By Association and “The Iranian Connection” on DVD.]
Responsibility for identifying the cause of this financial and economic crisis lies neither with the Attorney General nor with the Department of Justice but with you. The Commission charter envisions deployment of its investigatory powers to ensure that the American people are protected from serial financial predators.
The consistency of the fact patterns uncovered over the past seven years of full-time research and analysis—pivoting off Mr. Rockefeller’s experience—suggests a common source not only of this latest financial and economic crisis but also of our national security crisis.
Match these confirmed facts against the template of means, motive and opportunity and the perpetrator comes into focus. When combined with stable nation state intelligence able to operate inside the U.S. with impunity, the list of potential suspects narrows even more.
A good faith investigation would compile a list of AIPAC’s top-rated Congressional supporters and those who recently endorsed “an unbreakable bond” with Israel. Then compare those lists with a list of those Senators and Representatives most active in supporting the changes to law and regulations that enabled this systemic fraud on the American people. For example:
- 1981 – Tax incentives for accelerated depreciation on commercial real estate
- 1982 – Garn-St. Germaine Depository Institutions Act
- 1994 – Cutback in the antifraud provisions of the securities law
- 1999 – Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act—loosening Glass-Steagall standards
- 2000 – Commodity Futures Modernization Act
Was this same profile disproportionately represented in the Orange County bankruptcy of 1994 (interest rate swaps)? In the 1998 failure of Long Term Capital Management? To what extent did a pro-Israeli bias populate the ranks of those who championed the loosening of Glass-Steagall standards and passage of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act?
Appendix B: A Micro Portal into a Macro Fraud
The Commission’s capacity to move in directions that might constrain others provides a historic opportunity to address a systemic fraud that has long financially undermined the U.S. economy from within. Branded worldwide as the Washington consensus, the U.S. discredited itself—by our association with its known dysfunctional results.
By investigating two ongoing frauds at the personal (“micro”) level, Commission investigators will learn firsthand the modus operandi by which national and global (“macro”) frauds can proceed in plain sight yet, to date, with impunity.
Commission investigators can most usefully commence this process by interviewing two FBI Special Agents copied on this correspondence. Agent Davis is familiar with the ongoing fraud against Ron Burke. Agent Williams interviewed Mr. Rockefeller March 30th. That interview took place the same date as a letter denying Mr. Rockefeller a claim for recovery in a fraud aided by a corrupt Arizona attorney who was disbarred. [See “Arizona State Bar” on DVD.]
Whether this timing was intentional or coincidental, the consistency of the fact patterns suggests that those complicit in this multi-decade stalking are confident they will not be held accountable. As confirmed in these accounts, local, state and federal authorities have been consistent in their refusal to follow these facts wherever they may lead. With remarkable consistency, law enforcement officials have signaled Mr. Rockefeller (with means both subtle and direct) that no one will investigate and that this syndicate dominates the legal process.
Agent Williams can testify to his reluctance to “connect the dots” when he was called to interview Mr. Rockefeller at the request of the Polish government in connection with a 15-year old Jerome Corsi/Carl Lindner fraud. Agent Williams initially refused to consider facts connecting that “micro” fraud to the systemic trans-generational criminality proven by Mr. Rockefeller’s personal experience.
The serial frauds against Mr. Burke (in the tens of millions of dollars) remain ongoing with the assistance of parties identified for Agent Davis in a May 11th meeting with Mr. Burke. Thus the relevance of these ongoing frauds for explaining to an oft-defrauded American public how large-sized “macro” frauds can be perpetrated in plain sight yet, to date, with impunity.
[See on DVD “Gates Letter to AAA re Ron Burke” chronicling key components
of this ongoing fraud. Mr. Burke can be reached in Arizona at 480-720-8000.]
Serial Frauds over Multiple Decades
The serial criminal stalking of Mel Rockefeller commenced in 1981-82 with a sophisticated bank fraud involving a fraudulent federal document submitted to Security Pacific Bank by the comptroller of Hewlett Packard. The key perpetrator was Dr. Robert T. Birndorf. The totality of the facts suggest that fraud was being pre-staged when Mr. Rockefeller (then James Melvin Cunningham) was being stalked at age six. [See Guilt By Association, p. 215, note 30.]
The coordination of frauds against Messrs. Rockefeller and Burke is reflected in the relationship between operative Doug Skeen, an adviser to Mr. Rockefeller, and Arizona attorney Leo Beus, Mr. Skeen’s cousin and then a law partner of Neil Wake. Mr. Wake served as mentor to Steven Herman, a key operative in frauds against Mr. Burke perpetrated two decades apart.
[See Guilt By Association, p. 216, note 31.]
Mr. Wake, appointed a U.S. District Court judge by President G.W. Bush, aided the Burke fraud when he became attorney of record and took custody of critical records required by Mr. Burke to prove this fraud. Those records had been fraudulently obtained by Mr. Herman and transferred to Mr. Wake. Judge Wake remains the attorney of record. A proper FBI vetting would have precluded his March 2004 approval by the U.S. Senate.
A timeline provides an overview of serial frauds perpetrated against Mr. Rockefeller, initially with oversight by Doug Skeen (1981-1994) and thereafter by Carol Barr, reportedly a former employee of the Central Intelligence Agency and a key operative against whom Mr. Rockefeller filed suit in Arizona for fraud, misrepresentation, breach of contract and conspiracy. Attorney misconduct in that suit led to the disbarment of Arizona attorney John T. Franklin, Mr. Rockefeller’s counsel in that lawsuit.
[See “Motion for Voluntary Dismissal” on DVD.]
This material is in the public record as part of court filings in the Payson, Arizona Superior Court of Gila County where systemic corruption remains rife. The financial cost to Mr. Rockefeller of the serial frauds perpetrated against him since 1981—with the assistance of Doug Skeen and Carol Barr—total in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
In each case, as with the initial fraud by Dr. Birndorf, the facts suggest that the perpetrators would not have proceeded but for their confidence that they could escape detection and/or prosecution. This critical “micro” lesson should not be lost on the Commission as they investigate the brazenness with which “macro” frauds are still being perpetrated on the American people in plain sight and, to date, with impunity.
At no time did Mr. Rockefeller consider his genealogy a relevant factor in whether law enforcement was obliged to investigate the facts required to protect his rights as a citizen. On four separate occasions, I wrote to Senator John D. Rockefeller IV offering an apology should any of the personal facts in these files be in error. I have yet to receive a single response from those certified receipt letters. Senator Rockefeller is copied on these materials.
I first met “Jay” Rockefeller in 1981when he was Governor of West Virginia and I was asked by Senator Robert Byrd to advise on an employee buyout of the state’s largest private sector employer. I later worked with Senator Rockefeller for two of my seven years as Senate Finance Committee counsel where he became a freshman member in January 1985 under the sponsorship of Louisiana Senator Russell Long for whom I worked.
Ron Burd also unsuccessfully sought functional engagement with a law firm representing the Rockefeller family. After Mr. Rockefeller contacted Laurance Rockefeller, he broke off all contact with Dr. Glenn Olds who had been a friend for many decades.
The Systemic Roots of Corruption
Had the Birndorf bank fraud been investigated in good faith by the FBI in 1981-82, federal investigators would have uncovered the seeds of systemic corruption that have since matured into serial frauds costing the American public hundreds of billions of dollars. Two asides that may prove indicative of the systemic nature of this corruption:
- SEC chairman Christopher Cox began his political career in the Reagan White House. From there, this Minnesota native was dispatched to Orange County, California where the same syndicate that produced many other political careers also produced his. Orange County was a node for numerous frauds perpetrated against Mr. Rockefeller. While in Congress, Mr. Cox engaged political operative Lewis Libby as counsel for the “Cox Commission” examining U.S. trade with China. The crisis under study by this Commission was enabled not only by Mr. Cox’s relaxed anti-fraud position but also by a systemic lack of SEC vigilance, enforcement and prosecution. And by a trade policy guaranteed, under consensus model dynamics, to result in the current imbalances with China whereby U.S. security is backed with financial assets while China, using American purchasing power, invests in commodities.
- As Senate Finance Committee counsel (1980-87), the scope of duties for each attorney was extensive. Yet the GOP staff included one lawyer, Donald Susswein, who was notable for spending much of his two-year tenure working one issue: mortgage-backed securities as a means to facilitate an originate-to-distribute model for extending credit and transferring risk. Robert Lighthizer was then Chief of Staff for the majority; Michael Stern for the minority and Bobby Shapiro for the Joint Committee on Taxation. [
[In Guilt By Association, see pp. xxvii-xxxi for a description
of agents, assets and sayanim (“volunteers”).]
When Mr. Rockefeller was drawn to Orange County in 1979, Doug Skeen moved into his neighborhood and befriended him and his young family. In retrospect, it’s clear that those complicit in these serial frauds share a common faith tradition rooted in Zionism, either as members of the Judaic faith or, more often in Mr. Rockefeller’s early years, Mormons (aka The Lost Tribe of Israel). That common ideological bond also typifies the ranks of those active in ongoing serial frauds against Mr. Burke.
The DVD includes a photograph of J.D. Heppler who together with his wife befriended Mr. Rockefeller’s mother when she relocated from West Virginia to Detroit in 1952. Mr. Heppler progressed from owning a body shop in Detroit to painting Formula One racecars in Arizona for the rich and famous.
Mr. Rockefeller first met Ron Burke in 1973 when both men were residents in an apartment complex on Scottsdale Road in Tempe while attending Arizona State University. Soon after Mr. Rockefeller moved in, this syndicate moved in next door the beautiful blond “beard” of Merv Griffin, Nancy Reagan’s best friend for decades. The ongoing serial criminal stalking of Mr. Rockefeller and its implications for U.S. politics will be addressed in future releases.
When Sam Zeniya relocated to Arizona from Japan to work for Mr. Heppler, he shared an apartment with Mr. Rockefeller. Mr. Zeniya was only recently confirmed as a member of the Mitsubishi family. Over his mother’s objections, Mr. Rockefeller accepted an invitation from Mr. Zeniya to visit Japan in 1974 where Mr. Rockefeller stayed at the home of Kenjo Minato whose personal residence adjoining the royal palace was valued at ~$250 million in the late 1980s. The facts suggest that Mr. Zeniya was the Rothschild agent for Japan.
[See “Early Arizona” on DVD for photos of Messrs. Heppler
and Zeniya and Mr. Minato’s business card.]
A Closer Look at Common Components
Indicative of the common Mormon-Zionist component in these ongoing serial frauds is the fact that Mr. Rockefeller was drawn into the “fields within fields” of relationships of those complicit in the pre-staging and orchestration of the S&L fraud.
[In Guilt By Association, see pp. 214-16, notes 24-35 and refer to the index for
David Bonderman (now Texas Pacific Group). The first organized crime casinos
were financed in part by Parry Thomas, “the Mormon banker to Vegas.” (p. 33).]
This Mormon/Jewish Zionist connection suggests how this ongoing mega-fraud may proceed with the help of those Mormons for whom federal law enforcement is seen as a career track. The consistency of the fact patterns suggests that this undisclosed bias in law enforcement may help explain the inability of the FBI to engage this evidentiary trail in a functional manner. This shared ideology may also be a factor in the intelligence community’s ongoing “dot disconnect.”
Note, for example, that Mr. Rockefeller traveled to Iraq in January 1997 when travel was prohibited. He met there for several days with a nuclear physicist who oversaw the industrial division that included Iraq’s nuclear program. On his return FBI agents declined to charge him and failed to interview him (either pre- or post-911). Agents in the Minneapolis office then sought to frame him in 1997 for the 1995 Corsi/Lindner fraud described above.
Despite the submission of voluminous evidence to the FBI Phoenix office in December 2005, Mr. Rockefeller was first interviewed March 30, 2010. However, that interview came only in response to a request by the Polish government based on a 15-year old fraud. The interview lacked sufficient depth to begin to expose this multi-decade criminality. To grasp the systemic nature of this transnational operation, the Commission would be well advised to determine the source of the timing of that 15-year delay. [See Mr. Rockefeller’s FBI response on DVD.]
Throughout Mr. Rockefeller’s experience (still ongoing), repetitive factors became apparent:
- Those with line authority refused to undertake good faith investigations.
- No investigation meant no offense—which meant no access to a remedy at law.
- Perpetrators focused on keeping him financially unstable.
- Operatives routinely sought to discredit him, often by seeking to portray him as crazy.
- Corruption is systemic within local, state and federal law enforcement.
- Operatives remained confident throughout that they would not be prosecuted.
If Mr. Rockefeller is paid what he is owed by the State Bar of Arizona Client Protection Fund, the conduct of John Franklin (the disbarred attorney) will become the subject of a grand jury proceeding. That proceeding will begin to unwind ongoing frauds in Arizona that will lead to frauds perpetrated in other states and abroad—by the same network of syndicate operatives.
At present, operatives in the State Bar of Arizona are protecting Mr. Franklin from indictment by denying Mr. Rockefeller’s claim. The Commission could greatly upgrade its grasp of the systemic nature of this criminality if investigators identified who is providing this protection.
The motivation to protect Mr. Franklin is multi-dimensional. If a grand jury is convened, jurors in Arizona have the right to ask questions of those who appear. With the capacity to take testimony from Mr. Rockefeller, Mr. Burd and myself (per my June 11th recommendation to Mr. McWilliams), the Franklin case will expose:
- A former C.I.A. operative (Carol Barr) complicit in the serial criminal stalking of a witness able to prove with his personal experience a half-century evidentiary trail confirming the common source of ongoing capital crimes, including treason while this nation is at war. Ms. Barr knows that Mr. Rockefeller uncovered ongoing operations of this transnational syndicate in numerous venues key to U.S. national security, including Iran, Iraq, Indonesia, China, Russia, the European Union and elsewhere.
- Complicity of a U.S. District Court Judge (Neil Wake) in the serial criminal stalking over a two-decade period of Ronald P. Burke with evidence of ongoing complicity by numerous operatives in the Mormon Church. Those operatives include California resident Doug Skeen and his cousin, Phoenix attorney Leo Beus, a former law partner of Judge Wake. By linking these serial frauds to a common motivation, all parties are liable for conspiracy.
- Evidence of complicity in the office of the Attorney General of Arizona (Terry Goddard) and former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, now Secretary of Homeland Security, when they failed to engage in good faith an evidentiary trail submitted December 2005 that would have enabled the American public to protect itself from this transnational criminal syndicate.
- Evidence of complicity by Governor Jeb Bush in the stalking of Mr. Rockefeller when he sought to contact President G.W. Bush in April 2004 with evidence of the fraudulent nature of the WMD rationale for invading Iraq. That stalking intensified when Mr. Rockefeller relocated to Florida believing that the letter from Jeb Bush was sent in good faith.
- Evidence of Mr. Rockefeller being drawn into the senior-most nodes of this syndicate when they were pre-staging several of the mega-frauds that are the subject of this Inquiry.
That grand jury testimony will include evidence of this submission and an assessment of whether the facts in these files were engaged in good faith and consistent with the gravity of what these facts can prove provided investigators follow the evidence wherever it leads.
Given the capacity of jurors to question Mr. Rockefeller at length, that questioning is destined to lead to the broader dimensions of this corruption, including the frauds to which he was subjected as well as the frauds to which jurors and their families were subjected—by this same syndicate.
Jurors will find it unsettling to discover that law enforcement officials not only refused to engage the confirmed facts in Mr. Rockefeller’s files, they also refused to engage Dr. Glenn Olds who, at his death in 2006, had been a friend of G.H.W. Bush for 59 years. The former president succeeded Dr. Olds, an ordained minister, as U.N. Ambassador under President Richard Nixon. When the facts cannot be challenged, those complicit target the fact-finder, typically by attacking their credibility. That tactic should be anticipated this Commission.
Those complicit in this criminal operation know what they have done—to Mr. Rockefeller, to similar families (both here and abroad), to this nation and to other nations. Those identified also know the sanctions to which they are liable as these facts work their way to transparency.
With good faith engagement (e.g., a state and/or federal grand jury), the entirety of this evidentiary trail becomes relevant. Those complicit know this evidentiary trail is poised to expose this ancient fact-displacing modus operandi. With transparency, the American public will grasp the costs to them in both blood and treasure. As Americans grasp how they were deceived, who and why will come sharply into focus. That’s when accountability can commence.
By investigating how serial frauds were perpetrated against Mr. Rockefeller and Mr. Burke, the Commission will gain the forensic profile required to properly investigate the cause of the current financial and economic crisis. Absent that profile, the scope, scale, depth and duration of this corruption may remain undetected and unpunished—to the detriment of the American people and U.S. national security.
For those chronicled, debt is always the prize. Recall the peace dividend? The fiscal cost of this latest war (every dollar borrowed) could top $3 Trillion (with $700 billion in interest) as we witnessed a seamless segue from the Cold War to a Global War featuring a plausible Evil Doer.
Chapter 5 of Guilt By Association chronicles the systemic financial pillaging of the former Soviet Union. The Commission would be well advised to ponder this key question: Is the U.S. next?
At what point does the Commission shift its focus from fraud to recovery? As with key Russian operatives, will those complicit in financially pillaging the U.S. economy flee to Israel to take refuge behind a wall of non-extradition while portraying their pursuers as “anti-Semites”?
At the close of WWII, the U.S. was home to 50% of the world’s productive power. That financial and economic strength ensured the U.S. economy would have the most secure bonds for at least two generations. Did today’s financial and economic crisis “just happen”? Or was this crisis a “probabilistic” outcome enabled by a money-myopic mindset (shared belief) that evolved into the finance-fixated “Washington” consensus.
[See description of game theory at p. 1 of Guilt By Association.]
How systemic is this ongoing fraud? How was this narrow mindset imbedded in education such that money-denominated values were granted not just priority but primacy? How did this manipulated belief displace informed choice? How was the U.S. public induced to freely embrace the very forces that now jeopardize their freedom?
The facts suggest a key geopolitical reason that Mr. Rockefeller has not yet been functionally engaged by federal law enforcement: if a good faith investigation is pursued wherever the facts lead, the evidence will lead to a trans-generational criminal syndicate to which a U.S. president (Harry Truman) was induced to extend nation-state status in May 1948.
The consistency of the fact patterns over multiple decades suggests that those complicit in the lengthy pre-staging of serial financial frauds and geopolitical manipulations routinely stalk influential families. Senator Rockefeller withdrew from the Democratic presidential primary on August 7, 1991 citing personal and family reasons.
Did a 1991 attempt on Mel Rockefeller’s life in New Orleans influence that decision? Were those electoral dynamics pre-staged four decades beforehand? Is it possible that those profiled were framing a U.S. election that far in advance? Is that because this syndicate would have been unable to deploy their money to dominate decision-making in a Rockefeller presidency?
If the Commission follows these facts wherever they lead, to what extent will the influence of this syndicate be found in shaping the policies required to enable these serial frauds?
Integrating All Aspects
Vice Chairman Thomas and you committed the Commission to “integrate all aspects of the crisis” in order to provide a clear and complete explanation to the American people. The public’s trust in our financial system is rightly shaken. To suggest that the consensus model can deliver a “new era of broadly shared prosperity” only obscures and perpetuates this “macro” fraud.
This crisis is not unique to the United States. Leaders in the European Union are worried that their debt crisis poses a threat to the foundations of democracy and the rule of law. The U.S. is home to 78 million Baby Boomers born from 1946 to 1964. The syndicate identified in these accounts systematically pillaged the private sector retirement plans on which Boomers believed they could rely. The same is true for public sector pension plans. In both cases, this syndicate’s treatment of those immense funds was similar to organized crime’s casino skim.
The U.S. has more armed citizens than any nation. What will be their response when they realize that their modest Social Security benefits will also be cut? Or, as with the 1983 Report of the National Commission on Social Security (the Greenspan Commission), they see their retirement again deferred and payroll withholding again increased?
The multi-dimensional costs of this ongoing fraud are difficult to overstate. This was far more than just a financial crime. The systemic nature of this fraud undermined our credibility, jeopardized our credit standing, weakened our fiscal condition and, in the headlong pursuit of financial returns, endangered the environment for future generations.
The capacity of systemic fraud to proceed in plain sight makes it all the more essential that its cause be conceded. When contemplating a fraud woven into the very fabric of our national consciousness, how do we “see” that with which—or through which—we were taught to see?
The remedy lies in education, transparency, accountability and improved design.
Should the Commission fail to make practical recommendations on the recovery portion of the law’s mandate, to whom should an aggrieved public turn for accountability?
As with the financial pillaging of Russia by this transnational criminal syndicate, the bulk of America’s wealth is presently perceived as “private property.” If the Commission performs consistent with its charter, a portion of that wealth can be recovered when the public realizes that many of those financial assets are the spoils of frauds perpetrated over decades, often with the assistance of political “assets” who operate in that enabling in-between domain of policymaking.
As retirement draws closer, a defrauded American public is looking for answers. Those answers can be found by studying two ongoing frauds in Arizona, a state long dominated by organized crime. [See Guilt By Association, chapters 2-4.] A good faith investigation will confirm that these “micro” frauds mirror how ongoing “macro” frauds put America at risk.
Special Agent Harold Davis in the Phoenix office of the FBI reportedly told Mr. Burke on May 11th that the failure to investigate the fraud against him was largely due to a lack of resources. Agent Davis should be interviewed ASAP as should former Special Agent in Charge John Lewis and Supervisory Special Agent Julie Halferty. As confirmed in the materials on DVD, on five separate occasions correspondence on this matter was refused (or returned) from that office.
- If there is no FBI investigation, does that mean no crime was committed?
- If federal laws are changed to accommodate fraud, does that make the fraud legal?
- If the Commission fails to investigate, does that mean no crime was committed?
- If the Commission fails to acknowledge systemic fraud, does that make the fraud legal?
- Is this how the rule of law is used to protect those who consider themselves above the law?
As these evidentiary trails work their way to public disclosure, where will credibility reside? Will a long-defrauded public believe the facts? Or will they believe those who, to date, have refused to do the job they swore an oath to perform—consistent with the facts?
If, as the facts suggest, this evidentiary trail also makes transparent those committing ongoing treason, what is the appropriate federal sanction should Commissioners and/or staff decline to follow the evidence—wherever it leads?

Summary of Criminal State Exhibits on DVD
The materials on the accompanying DVD are summarized here. In reviewing the materials, consider the probability that any one person would be drawn into each of the relationships described unless the same operatives serially defrauding James M. (“Mel”) Rockefeller are also defrauding the U.S. – from within. Ongoing frauds in Arizona are described at pp. 5-7. The materials are presented in approximate chronological order.

Correspondence. From the Central Intelligence Agency and the State Department in response to Freedom of Information/Privacy Act requests:
- The C.I.A. confirmed that the Agency could not release any of its files pertaining to James M. Rockefeller because his files are classified:
- “by Executive Order in the interest of national defense or foreign policy” and
- “to protect from disclosure intelligence sources and methods.”
- The response from the U.S. Department of State confirmed the national security and foreign policy implications, including statements regarding Mr. Rockefeller’s personal knowledge about the pre-staging of the war in Iraq.
Similar requests to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, commencing in 2005, have thus far resulted in the disclosure of only a dozen pages despite volumes of documents known to be in the FBI’s possession as a result of activities in several offices both in the U.S. and abroad.
Note also an April 1997 fax from the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs where Mr. Rockefeller briefed senior staff of the Middle East Division after regional specialists in the State Department declined to meet with him following his return from Baghdad in February 1997.
A compilation of responses from world leaders, including Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt (then President of the EU), UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and Middle East envoy George Mitchell. Florida Governor Jeb Bush responded to a research compilation hand-delivered on April 12, 2004 to key Congressional and Executive Branch offices, including the 911 Commission.
Correspondence from July 2005-July 2007 is addressed to a Strawberry, Arizona residence to which Mr. Rockefeller was induced to relocate by Carol Barr, a key operative. A photocopy of Mr. Rockefeller’s passport is also featured on the DVD.
The Iranian Connection (1987-2006).
- Mel Rockefeller was asked to sell a Manhattan office building previously belonging to the Shah of Iran’s educational foundation. At the time, the top two floors were occupied by arbitrageur Ivan Boesky, a Michael Milken co-conspirator in securities violations.
- In the course of the transaction, he met Pincus Green, partner of Iran oil trader Marc Rich who was defended by former Nixon White House counsel Leonard Garment and Lewis “Scooter” Libby who was then working in the Pentagon for Paul Wolfowitz in the G.H.W. Bush administration. In 2001, Libby became Vice President Dick Cheney’s White House Chief of Staff. Libby was convicted of federal charges for attempts to obscure the fixing of the WMD intelligence that induced the U.S. to invade Iraq.
- In 1987 the office building was being sold by Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, then President of the Iranian Parliament and now chairman of the Expert Council that appoints the ayatollah. The Rafsanjani family has long operated as “middlemen” in Iran.
- On April 9, 2004, Mr. Rafsanjani proclaimed as “heroic” an insurgency catalyzed by Iraqi Sheik Muqtada al-Sadr that fractured Iraq and Iraqi politics. Ahmed Chalabi, an Israeli asset, joined Rafsanjani in celebrating the al-Sadr-led insurgency. Mr. Chalabi’s disinformation was reported as factual intelligence by Judith Miller in The New York Times. Chalabi was developed as an asset by Richard Perle over a two-decade period.
- Note that intermarriage into Mr. Rockefeller’s family was an integral part of serial criminal stalking over multiple decades. That stalking remains ongoing.
War in Iraq Could Have Been Prevented (1997-2006). Note:
- Photo of Dr. Nidhal Al Hamdani, a Ph.D. nuclear physicist and head of a large industrial division that included its nuclear weapons program before it was mothballed in 1991.
- The U.S. was persuaded to rely on information re Iraqi WMD from a low-level file clerk in her division.
- Meanwhile regional experts in the U.S. State Department declined to meet with Mr. Rockefeller on his return from Baghdad with a means to remove Saddam Hussein without war.
- At the time, Saddam was known not to make phone calls, knowing that they were being monitored which is why he made this call to impress on listeners that he was taking seriously what was discussed with (and proposed to) Mr. Rockefeller.
- Saddam made another open call to King Hussein of Jordan to ensure that the cross-border security for Mr. Rockefeller was arranged.
- On his return in 1997, the Minneapolis office of the FBI tried to frame him for a fraud orchestrated in 1995 with the help of Israeli asset/agent Jerome Corsi (see below).
- Had he been engaged (rather than stalked) by FBI agents, a good faith investigation may have uncovered those support networks in Minnesota pre-staging the logistics there for Zacarias Moussaoui, the “20th hijacker.”
- The 9/11 Commission interviewed 1,200 people but not Mel Rockefeller even though the chair, vice-chair and executive director were provided a 152-page research compilation on April 12, 2004 (hand-delivered to their offices).
- Nine years after 9/11 and Mel Rockefeller has yet to be debriefed by anyone with line authority for national security or federal law enforcement.
- 19-year old UC San Diego student Patrick Hammara, a relative of San Diego resident Munther Ghazal, was murdered nine days prior to a mid-February 2003 meeting in Tucson with Mel Rockefeller, Jeff Gates and Dr. Glenn Olds, a friend of G.H.W. Bush since 1947. Mr. Ghazal cancelled his attendance at the meeting.
- Mr. Ghazal was the person closest to Saddam Hussein living in the U.S. on 9/11 (his family had known him since the Baathists’ rise to power in 1958)
- Mr. Ghazal’s family built the Baghdad Hotel in the 1950s (their 5-star hotel is now at the heart of the Green Zone).
- Mr. Ghazal accompanied Mel Rockefeller to Baghdad in 1997.
- Four days after 9/11, San Diego FBI Special Agent Stephen Butler interrogated Mr. Ghazal to ask if he was financing Mel Rockefeller (no one from the FBI contacted Mr. Rockefeller).
- On that same day, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz argued in a principal’s meeting at Camp David that the U.S. should invade Iraq.
- Pentagon war-planners began the invasion of Iraq five weeks after the meeting in Tucson with Dr. Olds, Mr. Rockefeller and Mr. Gates.
- Meanwhile regional experts in the U.S. State Department declined to meet with Mr. Rockefeller on his return from Baghdad with a means to remove Saddam Hussein without war.
- Dr. Al Hamdani was speaking to Saddam Hussein about Mr. Rockefeller in January 1997 when Mr. Rockefeller took this photo of her in her office.
- Iraqi dynamics suggest that Saddam Hussein could have been removed without war or an insurgency had Mel Rockefeller been engaged in good faith in 1997.
- Munther Ghazal
- Mr. Ghazal agreed to host an August 2009 dinner meeting at his home that would have been filmed. Attendees who had agreed to participate include Harriet Fulbright, Helen Thomas and John Duke Anthony. Attendance was also anticipated by Chas Freeman and filmmaker Rory Kennedy who produced the HBO Special on Ms. Thomas. As the details were confirmed, Mr. Ghazal canceled.
- Likely points of leverage include Ghazal-owned properties in Iraq, including his interest in the Baghdad Hotel and the Diana Hotel.
- See the photographs of Messrs. Rockefeller and Ghazal at Babylon in February 1997 when Saddam had closed the site to anyone but them and a security detail.
- In 2006, those interviewing Mr. Ghazal showed him photographs of he and Mr. Rockefeller at that venue.
The Indonesian Connection (2001). Note:
- A multi-billion dollar Israeli-orchestrated bribe meant to encourage the Indonesian Parliament to push the U.S. out of the region in favor of China.
- This effort, reportedly fronted by a George Soros NGO, was uncovered by Indonesian intelligence chief Arie Kumaat.
- Mr. Kumaat was murdered in January 2002 (poisoned) after agreeing to arrange a meeting for Mr. Rockefeller with President Wahid, the leader of 80 million moderate Muslim men. Mr. Rockefeller anticipated that meeting would lead to an introduction to Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad as Mr. Rockefeller sought to stop the invasion of Iraq based on what is now known as false intelligence about Iraqi WMD.
- Photos of Mel Rockefeller in: (a) a Jakarta restaurant with Arie Kumaat and son Henrie, and (b) in Oregon after a debriefing for Glenn Olds by Mr. Kumaat.
- April 5, 2001 email to State Department Indonesian specialist Rick Haynes. Note:
- Beijing announced the release of 24 U.S. service people on the morning that Mr. Rockefeller appeared at the State Department for a scheduled meeting to discuss concerns by Indonesian intelligence that Israel was collaborating with China against U.S. interests in the region.
- The last paragraph expresses concern about the ability of a president to get accurate information “in a more timely manner, during a crisis that will begin limiting third party intervention that has for too long painted our leaders into corners they have difficulty getting out of.”
The Chinese Connection (2000-2001).
- Harlan Peltz, a lifelong friend of Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger oversaw a fraud that undermined a project to educate 235 million Chinese students.
- Nokia was prepared to invest $250 million in this Youthstream project.
- A major IT company was shut down rather than allow the deal to close.
- See photograph of Mr. Rockefeller with Deputy Education Minister Liu Bin.
- Ben Bassi (in photo) was fired after a 2003 interview on this subject by Jeff Gates; he was then subjected to an IRS audit.
- Mr. Bassi reports lost $62.5 million when he was fired after signing an MOU with the Ministry that would have increased Youthstream’s value by ~$300 million.
- Mr. Bassi and Bill Townsend (w/ hand up in photo) were co-founders of Lycos.
- Four years ago, Mr. Townsend again encountered Bruce Resnick, chief financial officer for Youthstream. Resnick extracted a reported $20 million from the firm by selling his shares before the company was taken into bankruptcy to ensure that Mr. Rockefeller did not get paid (he had a one-third stake in the China venture).
- Mr. Resnick reportedly conceded the fraud and sold his shares because he was not part of the Ashkenazi clique behind this fraud.
- SEC records reflect no charge filed for Mr. Resnick’s insider trading.
- At the time that the value of this publicly traded company was destroyed, it had a reported market capitalization of ~$600 million.
- After the dot.com crash, Nokia Ventures offered to acquire Youthstream for its then reported value. Rather than allow Mr. Rockefeller to attain financial viability, the offer was declined. Rupert Murdoch was then involved with Youthstream as a principal in Six Degrees. Six Degrees’ technology became the intellectual property behind Linked In.
- Mr. Townsend can be reached at 512-228-2400. Mr. Bassi was working for Liquid Machines when he was fired. Richard Clarke serves on the advisory board.
- AIG, founded in Shanghai (1927), saw a $40 billion surge in its market capitalization post-9/11. Henry Kissinger was then chair of AIG’s International Advisory Board. Note:
- On three separate occasions, Mr. Rockefeller was drawn into business relationships with people close to A.I.G.
- On 9/11, AIG’s ~$700 billion portfolio was invested 93 percent in bonds; the portfolios of its top three competitors were invested 50-60 percent in bonds.
- On 9/11, AIG was holding just $258 million in cash; its competitors held between $2.1 billion and $5.6 billion.
How I met Kaisa Kautto-Koivula (a reflection by Mr. Rockefeller).
- When we met in Tampere (August 1999) she was the Senior Manager of Nokia Ventures, the venture capital firm that reinvests Nokia profits.
- See paper on DVD titled “Evolution Towards Human-Centric Knowledge Society” published in Global Peace Through The Global University System.
- It was through their interaction that Nokia agreed in 2000 to invest $250 million in an education-centric venture in China (see below) designed by Mr. Rockefeller and Dr. Glenn Olds (See Dr. Olds’ CV).
- When Nelson Rockefeller was Governor of New York, Dr. Olds was hired as Executive Dean to internationalize the curriculum of the 64-campus State University of New York (S.U.N.Y.).
- Dr. Olds was then asked by U.N. Secretary General U Thant to design the curriculum for the U.N. University (established in Tokyo).
- After the on-campus National Guard shootings at Kent State University during a Vietnam War protest, Dr. Olds took over the presidency. He and David Packard put in place a system to ensure that tragedy could not be repeated.
- While president of Springfield College (reportedly then the nation’s youngest), the trustees included Senator John F. Kennedy. President Kennedy asked that Dr. Olds design the nation’s first technology-transfer system to ensure that public-funded NASA research was recycled back into communities and education.
- Thus the legacy of the education-centric business model agreed to by the Ministry of Education in China, as described above.
James M. Rockefeller to Colin Powell (February 2003).
- This letter was mailed the same day that Secretary of State Colin Powell was deployed to the U.N. to associate his credibility with false intelligence about Iraqi mobile biological weapons laboratories.
- That intelligence was fixed around a preconceived agenda to invade Iraq due, in part, to Iraq’s possession of mobile biological weapons laboratories.
- It was not until months later that General Powell acknowledged he had been deceived.
Aleksandra Prusa Letter (March 2003).
- Mr. Rockefeller’s pre-invasion assessment addressed to Russia Vice-Consul Aleksanda Prusa anticipating what has since occurred in Iraq.
- Account of Mel Rockefeller’s meetings with Vladmir Zelman, Armand Hammer’s personal physician, and Anatoly Sobchak, mayor of St. Petersburg and mentor to then Deputy Mayor Vladimir Putin.
- See accompanying photo of Mr. Rockefeller with Messrs. Zelman and Sobchak.
- Note book dedication from poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko.
Motion for Voluntary Dismissal—Statement of Facts in support of (October 16, 2007).
- This litigation was withdrawn to preserve Mr. Rockefeller’s rights to proceed with civil litigation against Carol Barr, a key operative involved in 12 years of serial criminal stalking that included numerous instances of her aiding and abetting civil frauds.
- This litigation will serve as an opening wedge for civil claims against others who perpetrated frauds against Mr. Rockefeller in the U.S. and abroad.
- Ms. Barr reportedly served two ten-year contracts with the Central Intelligence Agency.
- The accompanying Statement of Facts includes an overview of the serial criminal stalking to which Mr. Rockefeller continues to be subjected.
- Sufficient evidence was provided for a criminal investigation. Consistent with the systemic corruption evident in other venues, no investigation was undertaken.
- After Ms. Barr and her daughter perjured themselves in a Gila County Superior Court proceeding, the recording of their testimony disappeared.
- As this litigation is renewed, the circumstances of this case will help make transparent systemic corruption at the federal, state and local level.
- The bulk of this evidentiary trail is part of the public record in the Payson, Arizona files of the Superior Court of Gila County.
Ron Burke Fraud (May 2006) [See “Gates letter to AAA.”]
- Provides an overview of the pre-staging and orchestration of serial frauds (two decades apart) perpetrated on Ronald L. Burke, Mr. Rockefeller’s colleague since 1973.
- The motivation for both frauds: to deny Mr. Burke the financial capacity to assist Mr. Rockefeller. An overview commences at page seven of the letter.
- Key operatives in this ongoing fraud portrayed Mr. Rockefeller as a “threat” prior to his relocation to Arizona and described colleague Jeff Gates as his “accomplice.”
- The arbitration process was integral to this sophisticated fraud involving all parties except “the mark” (Mr. Burke).
Arizona State Bar/FBI/Burke fraud (March/April 2010)
- March 30, 2010 – The State Bar of Arizona Client Protection Fund denied Mr. Rockefeller’s claim on specious grounds.
- March 30, 2010 – At the request of the Polish government, the Phoenix office of the FBI had Mr. Rockefeller sign a statement in response to questions involving a 1995 fraud in Poland that was orchestrated by Jerome Corsi and funded by Carl Lindner.
- April 23, 2010 – Mr. Rockefeller filed an appeal with the Client Protection Fund citing the factual and logical inconsistencies of their rationale for denying his claim.
- May 28, 2010 – Mr. Burke’s letter to accountant Peter Davis chronicled the complicity of Davis in this multi-decade fraud. Note how Arizona operatives (largely Mormon) sought to discredit Messrs. Rockefeller and Gates even before they relocated to Arizona.
Early Arizona (1969-1974)
- Photo of J.D. Heppler, Andy Granatelli and Mario Andretti at the 1969 Indianapolis 500. The Hepplers befriended Mr. Rockefeller’s mother when she relocated to the Detroit suburbs. When Mr. Heppler relocated to Arizona, his business shifted from managing a body shop to painting Formula One racecars for the rich and famous.
- Photo of Sam Zeniya with dune buggy (1974) – he moved to Arizona from Japan to learn how to paint racecars. Over the objections of his mother, Mr. Rockefeller (then Mel Cunningham) accepted an all-expenses paid trip to Japan where he stayed in the home of Kenjo Minato. Only recently was Mr. Zeniya confirmed as a Mitsubishi.
- Business card of Kenjo Minato whose personal residence near the Imperial Palace in downtown Tokyo was reportedly valued at ~$250 million in the late 1980s. The fact patterns suggest that Mr. Minato was the Rothschild agent for Japan.
Birndorf, HP, Security Pacific (1981-87)
- These files describe in brief a sophisticated bank fraud as the first in a series of frauds perpetrated against Mr. Rockefeller (then James M. Cunningham).
- The participation of Dr. Birndorf and his relationship to Michigan native Eli Broad suggests that this syndicate first stalked Mr. Rockefeller at age six when a close friend of Dr. Birndorf became his family physician.
Alpha Base (1982-86)
- These files describe in brief how Mr. Rockefeller was defrauded of his equity stake in a software applications firm that industry experts claim may have become Oracle
- These serial frauds were routinely facilitated by Mormon-Zionist operatives working in collaboration with Jewish Zionists.
Ron Burd correspondence with Secret Service Agent Brian Korbs (September 2000)
- This letter by Mr. Rockefeller’s counsel chronicles how personnel in the Salt Lake City office of the FBI harassed Mr. Rockefeller’s ex-wife and his response to that harassment.
- Though the FBI knew of Mr. Rockefeller’s whereabouts, two agents visited her place of employment to inquire of his whereabouts. Mr. Rockefeller sought from that office an explanation for the behavior of those agents. That explanation has not yet been provided.
- Though the Secret Service protects the president, this Secret Service agent alleged that he was dispatched (along with two uniformed Fresno police officers) to assess whether Mr. Rockefeller had threatened a FBI agent in the Salt Lake City office.
- Consistent with serial attempts to discredit Mr. Rockefeller, this agent requested in 2000 that Mr. Rockefeller sign a waiver form for U.C.L.A. medical records dating from 1986.
- At the time of this unannounced visit, Senator Joe Lieberman was campaigning in the Fresno area as part of the Gore-Lieberman presidential ticket.
- This attempt to deploy the perceived authority of the Secret Service to portray Mr. Rockefeller as a “nutcase” was staged 45 months after Mr. Rockefeller returned from Iraq with evidence that Iraq had no WMD and 12 months prior to the 911 attack that led to the March 2003 invasion of Iraq—reliant on false intelligence re Iraqi WMD.
Mr. Rockefeller to Rupert Murdoch (September 2001) [In Boston Globe file].
- Mr. Rockefeller challenged Fox News coverage of 911 and cited precedents for the disinformation and misdirection deployed during events that shape U.S. history.
- This letter also chronicles the means, motive and opportunity for the Zionist state’s role in that mass murder as a provocation.
Meetings in Europe (December 2001)
- When no one with line authority in the U.S. would meet with Mr. Rockefeller, he traveled to Europe to brief senior staff and officials of the European Union.
- Note the relevance of ricin aboard an El Al airliner that crashed in 1992 at Schiphol airport (Amsterdam).
- Note the follow-on correspondence with Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, then president of the EU.
- Note the role of FBI agents in undermining an attempt by Messrs. Rockefeller and Ghazal to travel to Jordan to seek engagement with facts with direct relevance to 911 that have yet to be engaged in the U.S.
Correspondence with Secret Service Agent Richard Sierze (January 2003).
- While working with Dr. Olds, Mr. Rockefeller sent an email to Governor Jeb Bush informing him that if his brother (the president) ordered an invasion of Iraq without first debriefing Mr. Rockefeller on a public record, Mr. Rockefeller would do everything within his lawful power to see the president executed for treason.
- When Agents Sierze and Rob Holman interviewed Mr. Rockefeller (with attorney Ron Burd present), Mr. Rockefeller asked that Agent Sierze speak to Dr. Olds. He declined.
- Mr. Rockefeller then requested that Agent Sierze charge him with a crime and take him before a federal magistrate so that the evidence in these files could be assessed.
- Had Agent Sierze performed as requested, the totality of the evidence suggests that the March 2003 invasion of Iraq may have been prevented.
- Agent Sierze should be interviewed to determine his after-the-fact assessment.
Refused Correspondence to Phoenix Office of the FBI (October 2007-March 2010).
- Refused correspondence from Mel Rockefeller to Special Agent in Charge John Lewis, head of the Phoenix divisional office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
- Refused correspondence directed to Supervisory Special Agent Julie Halferty.
- Refused Gates correspondence to Special Agent David Williams (March 4, 2010).
Boston Globe Treason memo (August 2008).
- This memo was crafted after publication of The Obama Nation when a Boston Globe reporter inquired about Mr. Rockefeller’s relationship to author Jerome Corsi while there was a “phony Rockefeller” story featured in Boston media.
- This memo was copied to the general counsel of The New York Times and was written to preclude the Times’ media group (including the Globe) from attempting to associate Mr. Rockefeller with a phony Rockefeller.
- Should the Times proceed with such a guilt-by-association media strategy, this memo will ensure the ability to prove actual malice as part of a libel cause of action.
- Jerome Corsi has long been an Israeli asset (or agent) that Mel Rockefeller first met in 1995. See files titled:
- Poland Fraud – led by Jerome Corsi and financed by Carl Lindner
- Corsi-related photos – note Atomic Iran and launch of Minutemen at Ground Zero
- Gates – Blair 03-16-05 (Mr. Rockefeller “outed” Mr. Corsi as Israeli asset/agent.
List of Correspondence (1991-2005).
- This list chronicles 15 years of good faith attempts to engage officials with line responsibility for law enforcement and national security—with no success.
- This correspondence suggests the depth, scope, scale and duration of the corruption—still ongoing—inside government at the federal, state and local level.
January 2009 Correspondence
- This letter to Attorney General Eric Holder requested a meeting to discuss confirmed facts proving ongoing federal capital crimes, including treason while this nation is at war.
- No response was received.
February 2009 Correspondence
- Mr. Rockfeller’s letter to President Barack Obama sought good faith engagement to expose and hold accountable those committing ongoing treason.
- Note the reference to good faith attempts to engage Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano while she was governor of Arizona.
- Mr. Rockefeller’s letter to National Security Adviser Jim Jones again confirms that, with functional good faith engagement, this ongoing treason can be stopped.
- No response was received to either letter.
November 2009 Correspondence
- Mr. Rockefeller’s letter to Lt. General Robert Cone followed the shooting at Fort Hood, Texas of U.S. troops. General Cone is the commanding general of Fort Hood.
- As with all previous correspondence, this letter seeks good faith functional engagement by those willing to follow the facts wherever they may lead.
- This overview explains how duplicity proceeds in plain sight by targeting knowledge to affect thought and emotion—and thereby manipulate behavior in a nonlinear fashion.
- Imagine what a different nation (and world) we would now inhabit if:
- President John Kennedy had succeeded in 1963 in forcing Israel to shut down its nuclear weapons program.
- Senator William Fulbright and Attorney General Robert Kennedy had succeeded in 1962-63 in forcing the Israel lobby to register as a foreign agent.
- Robert Kennedy had been elected in 1968 and continued JFK’s program re Israeli nuclear weapons and (with Fulbright) mandated foreign agent registration for AIPAC.
- This file also includes one of several letters to Senator John D. Rockefeller IV and a photocopy of Mr. Gates and Senator Rockefeller (circa 1985).
CVs – for Dr. Glenn Olds and Jeff Gates
- Dr. Olds served as an adviser to four presidents, two of each party.
- Mr. Rockefeller’s senior adviser for 12 years, Dr. Olds died in March 2006.
- Dr. Olds served as a confidential adviser to four of the five third-generation Rockefeller brothers. He was particularly close to New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller who he said Mel Rockefeller most resembles in speech and thought.
- He had known Senator John D. (“Jay”) Rockefeller since age 27 when Jay served in West Virginia in Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), a program Dr. Olds conceived and shepherded to enactment.
- At his death, Dr. Olds had been a friend and professional colleague of G.H.W. Bush for 59 years. They first met when Dr. Olds was a teacher’s assistant at Yale University for Philosophy I and G.H.W. Bush was a student—six months before he met Barbara.
- G.H.W. Bush succeeded Dr. Olds as U.N. Ambassador for Nixon.
- As a special assistant to President Nixon, Dr. Olds recruited more than 1,000 people, including Henry Kissinger, Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney.
- Dr. Olds’ conclusion based on the confirmed facts gathered by examining the “fields within fields…within fields of relationships” into which Mr. Rockefeller was drawn since his birth in 1952: “I am stunned at the depth of the treason.”
- The CV for Mr. Gates includes colleagues’ comments on The Ownership Solution (1998) and Democracy at Risk – Rescuing Main Street from Wall Street (2000).
Guilt By Association (2008).
- This book is the first release in the Criminal State series.
- In this initial “generic” account, Mr. Rockefeller is referenced only as “John Doe” in the preface and the endnotes.
- Book excerpts, endorsments and topical op-eds appear on www.criminalstate.com.
Americans know that something fundamental is amiss. They sense—rightly—that they are being misled no matter which political party does the leading.
A long misinformed public lacks the tools to grasp how they are being deceived. Without those tools, Americans will continue to be frustrated at being played for the fool.
When the “con” is clearly seen, “the mark” (that’s us) will see that all roads lead to the same duplicitous source: Israel and its operatives. The secret to Israel’s force-multiplier in the U.S. is its use of agents, assets and sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers).
When Israeli-American Jonathan Pollard was arrested for spying in 1986, Tel Aviv assured us that he was not an Israeli agent but part of a “rogue” operation. That was a lie.
Only 12 years later did Tel Aviv concede that he was an Israeli spy the entire time he was stealing U.S. military secrets. That espionage—by a purported ally—damaged our national security more than any operation in U.S. history.
In short, Israel played us for the fool.
From 1981-1985, this U.S. Navy intelligence analyst provided Israel with 360 cubic feet of classified military documents on Soviet arms shipments, Pakistani nuclear weapons, Libyan air defense systems and other intelligence sought by Tel Aviv to advance its geopolitical agenda.
Agents differ from assets and sayanim. Agents possess the requisite mental state to be convicted of treason, a capital crime. Under U.S. law, that internal state is what distinguishes premeditated murder from a lesser crime such as involuntary manslaughter. Though there’s a death in either case, the legal liabilities are different—for a reason.
Intent is the factor that determines personal culpability. That distinction traces its roots to a widely shared belief in free will as a key component that distinguishes humans from animals.
Agents operate with premeditation and “extreme malice” or what the law describes as an “evil mind.” Though that describes the mental state of Jonathan Pollard, Israeli leaders assured us otherwise—another example of an evil mind as the U.S. was played for the fool.
Played for the Fool, Again
Pollard took from his office more than one million documents for copying by his Israeli handler. When those classified materials were transferred to the Soviets, reportedly in exchange for the emigration of Russian Jews, this spy operation shifted the entire dynamics of the Cold War.
To put a price tag on this espionage, imagine $20 trillion in U.S. Cold War defense outlays from 1948-1989 (in 2010 dollars). The bulk of that investment in national security was negated by a spy working for a nation that pretended throughout to be a U.S. ally.
Pollard was sentenced to life in prison. Israel suffered no consequences. None. Zero. Nada. Not then. Not now. Then as now, we were played for the fool.
At trial, Pollard claimed he wasn’t stealing from the U.S.; he was stealing secrets for Israel—with whom the U.S. has long had a “special relationship.” He thought we should have shared our military secrets with them. That’s chutzpah. That also confirms we were played for the fool.
Looking back, it’s easy to see how seamlessly we segued from a global Cold War to a global War on Terrorism. In retrospect, the false intelligence used to induce our invasion of Iraq was traceable to Israelis, pro-Israelis or Israeli assets such as John McCain (see below).
Even while in prison, Pollard’s iconic status among Israelis played a strategic role. Was it just coincidence that Tel Aviv announced a $1 million grant to their master spy less than two weeks before 911? Is that how Israel signaled its operatives in the U.S.?
Absent that provocation, would we now find ourselves at war in the Middle East? Surely no one still believes that America’s interests are being advanced in a quagmire that has now become the longest war in U.S. history.
“I know what America is,” Benjamin Netanyahu told a group of Israelis in 2001, apparently not knowing his words were being recorded. “America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction.”
Let’s face it: the U.S. was again played for the fool.
With oversight by Israeli case officers (katsas), Israeli operations proceed in the U.S. by using agents, assets and volunteers (sayanim). Let’s take a closer look at each.
The Sayanim System
Sayanim (singular sayan) are shielded from conventional legal culpability by being told only enough to perform their narrow role. Though their help may be essential to the success of an Israeli operation, these volunteers (sayanim also means helpers) could pass a polygraph test because their recruiters ensure they remain ignorant of the overall goals of an operation.
In other words, a sayan can operate as an accomplice but still not be legally liable due to a lack of the requisite intent regarding the broader goals—of which they are purposely kept ignorant. Does that intentional “ignorance” absolve them of liability under U.S. law? So far, yes.
Much like military reservists, sayanim are activated when needed to support an operation. By agreeing to be available to help Israel, they provide an on-call undercover corps and force-multiplier that can be deployed on short notice.
How are sayanim called to action? To date, there’s been no attempt by U.S. officials to clarify that key point. This may explain why Pollard was again in the news on July 13th with a high-profile Israeli commemoration of his 9000th day of incarceration.
To show solidarity with this Israeli-American traitor, the lights encircling Jerusalem were darkened while an appeal was projected onto the walls of the Old City urging that President Obama order Pollard’s release from federal prison.
Pollard has long been a rallying point for Jewish nationalists, Zionist extremists and ultra-orthodox ideologues. In short, just the sort of people who would be likely recruits as sayanim. The news coverage given this Day of Adoration may help explain how Israel signals its helpers that an operation is underway and in need of their help.
Are pro-Israelis once again playing Americans for the fool?
When not aiding an ongoing operation, sayanim gather and report intelligence useful to Israel. This volunteer corps is deeply imbedded in legislative bodies, particularly in the U.S.
Thus far, this Israeli operation has advanced with legal impunity as the Israel lobby—though acting as a foreign agent—continues even now to pose as a “domestic” operation.
Morris Amitay, former executive director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, explains how this invisible cadre aids the Israel lobby in advancing its geopolitical agenda:
“There are a lot of guys at the working level up here [on Capitol Hill]…who happen to be Jewish, who are willing…to look at certain issues in terms of their Jewishness…These are all guys who are in a position to make the decision in these areas for those senators…You can get an awful lot done just at the staff level.”
What sayanim are not told by their katsas is that an Israeli operation may endanger not only Israel but also the broader Jewish community when these operations are linked to extremism, terrorism, organized crime, espionage and treason. Though sayanim “must be 100 percent Jewish,” Ostrovsky reports in By Way of Deception (1990):
“…the Mossad does not seem to care how devastating it could be to the status of the Jewish people in the Diaspora if it was known. The answer you get if you ask is: “So what’s the worst that could happen to those Jews? They’d all come to Israel. Great!” [Mossad is the intelligence and foreign operations directorate for Israel.]
Assets, Agents and Sayanim
Assets are people profiled in sufficient depth that they can be relied upon to perform consistent with their profile. Such people typically lack the state of mind required for criminal culpability because they lack the requisite intent to commit a crime.
Nevertheless, assets are critical to the success of Israeli operations in the U.S. They help simply by pursuing their profiled personal needs—typically for recognition, influence, money, sex, drugs or the greatest drug of all: ideology.
Thus the mission-critical task fulfilled by political assets that the Israel lobby “produces” for long-term service in the Congress—while appearing to represent their U.S. constituents.
Put a profiled asset in a pre-staged time, place and circumstance—over which the Israel lobby can exert considerable influence—and Israeli psy-ops specialists can be confident that, within an acceptable range of probabilities, an asset will act consistent with his or her profile.
Democrat or Republican is irrelevant; the strategic point remains the same: to ensure that lawmakers perform consistent with Israel’s interests. With the help of McCain-Feingold campaign finance “reform,” the Israel lobbyattained virtual control over the U.S. Congress.
The performance of assets in the political sphere can be anticipated with sufficient confidence that outcomes become foreseeable—within an acceptable range of probabilities. How difficult was it to predict the outcome when Bill Clinton, a classic asset, encountered White House intern Monica Lewinsky?
Senator John McCain has long been a predictable asset. His political career traces its origins to organized crime from the 1920s. It was organized crime that first drew him to Arizona to run for Congress four years before the 1986 retirement of Senator Barry Goldwater.
By marketing his “brand” as a Vietnam-era prisoner of war, he became a reliable spokesman for Tel Aviv while being portrayed as a “war hero.” No media outlet dares mention that Colonel Ted Guy, McCain’s commanding officer while a POW, sought his indictment for treason for his many broadcasts for the North Vietnamese that assured the death of many U.S. airmen.
As a typical asset, it came as no surprise to see McCain and Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, a self-professed Zionist, used to market the phony intelligence that took us to war in Iraq. McCain’s ongoing alliance with transnational organized crime spans three decades.
His 1980’s advocacy for S&L crook Charles Keating of “The Keating 5” finds a counterpart in his recent meetings with Russian-Israeli mobster Oleg Deripaska who at age 40 held $40 billion in wealth defrauded from his fellow Russians.
McCain conceded earlier this month in a town hall meeting in Tempe, Arizona that he met in a small dinner in Switzerland with mega-thief Deripaska and Lord Rothschild V.
For assets such as McCain to be indicted for treason, the American public must grasp the critical role that such pliable personalities play in political manipulations. McCain is a “poster boy” for how assets are deployed to shape decisions such as those that took our military to war. In the Information Age, if that’s not treason, what is?
The predictability of a politician’s conduct confirms his or her qualifications as an asset. They are routinely developed and “produced” over lengthy periods of time and then—as with John McCain—maintained in key positions to influence decision-making at key junctures.
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was candid in his assessment four weeks after 911. He may have been thinking about John McCain when he made this revealing comment:
“I want to tell you something very clear, don’t worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it.” [October 3, 2001]
Indictments for Treason
Are assets culpable? Do they have the requisite intent to indict them for treason? Does John McCain possess an evil mind? Did he betray this nation of his own free will or is he typical of those assets with personalities so weak and malleable that they can easily be manipulated?
As federal grand juries are impaneled to identify and indict participants in this trans-generational operation, how many sayanim should the Federal Bureau of Investigation expect to uncover in the U.S.? No one knows because this subtle form of treason is not yet well understood.
Victor Ostrovksy, a former Mossad katsa (case officer) wrote in 1990 that the Mossad had 7,000 sayanim in London alone. In London’s 1990 population of 6.8 million, Israel’s all-volunteer corps represented one-tenth of one percent of the residents of that capital city.
If Washington, DC is ten times more critical to Israel’s geopolitical goals (an understatement), does that mean the FBI should expect to find ten times more sayanim per capita in Washington?
What about sayanim in Manhattan, Miami, Beverly Hills, Atlanta, Boston, Charleston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa, Toledo?
No one knows. And Tel Aviv is unlikely to volunteer the information. This we know for certain: America has been played for the fool. And so has our military.
This duplicity dates back well before British Foreign Secretary Alfred Balfour wrote to an earlier Lord Rothschild in 1917 citing UK approval for a “Jewish homeland.” In practical effect, that “homeland” now ensures non-extradition for senior operatives in transnational organized crime.
To date, America has blinded itself even to the possibility of such a trans-generational operation inside our bordersand imbedded inside our government. Instead the toxic charge of “anti-Semitism” is routinely hurled at those chronicling the “how” component of this systemic treason.
Making this treason transparent is essential to restore U.S. national security. That transparency may initially appear unfair to the many moderate and secular Jews who join others appalled at this systemic corruption of the U.S. political system.
Yet they are also concerned that somehow they may be portrayed as guilty by association due to a shared faith tradition. That would be not only unjust to them but also ineffective in identifying and indicting those complicit.
This much is certain: a Democrat as president offers no real alternative to a Republican on those issues affecting U.S. policy in the Middle East.
That fateful decision must be revisited in light of what can now be proven about the “how” of this ongoing duplicity—unless Americans want to continue to be played for the fool.
