AMBASSADOR AND COTTRELL ORDERED OFF THE PREMISES BY OWNER OF THE BUILDING
This morning, Tuesday 20th November, Ambassador Lee Emil Wanta and Michael C. Cottrell, M.S., Executive Vice President and Treasurer of Ambassador Wanta’s Commonwealth of Virginia-based AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc., turned up, as officially instructed, at Citibank’s office at 399 Park Avenue, in Midtown Manhattan, to sign the relevant documents to finalise the Master Custodial Account and the relevant additional paperwork for the transfer of the $4.5 trillion belonging to the Ambassador, to his corporate securities account with Morgan Stanley, New York.
They visited the bank after the State Department, the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury, had each separately advised, and had subsequently CONFIRMED yesterday, that the $4.5 trillion is now ON THE BOOKS at Citibank, 399 Park Avenue.
The State Department, the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury also separately confirmed that the Ambassador ‘has been paid’, in the above context, and that they should show up at the bank this morning, as indicated above.
Upon arrival at 399 Park Avenue this morning, the Principals asked to see Mr William R. Rhodes. They were told that he was away from the bank today. They then asked to see Mr William Ferguson. He was not available. Richard Lava, Securities Chief, maintained his previous ‘line’, as did other Citibank officials, that the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell have no business with the bank.
However last evening (19th November), when Mr Richard Lava was contacted by telephone and told about the Provost Marshal and the arrests, he expressed surprise that the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell knew about them, thereby revealing of course that he knew all about them. In other words, Mr Lava acknowledged the accuracy of what we have published here on this subject.
Faced with this REFUSAL by Citibank to implement the instructions of the US State Department,
the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury (which, for once, were all supposedly singing from the same hymn sheet, and were believed, for the time being, NOT to be dissimulating), the Principals informed all three official parties, each of which expressed genuine SHOCK at the situation.
The Ambassador is being PHYSICALLY prevented by Citibank, contrary to official instructions and arrangements, from paying the $1.575 trillion that he should have paid to the Treasury in June 2006, when his $4.5 trillion was first hijacked by the US Treasury Secretary, Henry M. Paulson Jr. Not least of the consequences is that the Pentagon is in severe and URGENT need of on-the-books funds to equip US troops properly, which this action by the criminal enterprise Citibank is wilfully impeding.
Separately, the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell asked the Provost Marshal to come immediately to the scene to enforce his will and that of the State Department, the Federal Reserve, and the Treasury.
We await developments.
The Editor has been asked to post this notice pending the outcome of this dramatic crisis.
Shortly after the Editor received these details by telephone from Michael Cottrell from Citibank’s premises at 399 Park Avenue, the Editor received a further call from Mr Cottrell stating that the owner of the building, Boston Properties, had ordered the Ambassador and Mr Cottrell off the premises. The Chief Executive Officer of Boston Properties, which was founded in 1970 by Morton Zuckerman, is Edward H. Linde. The President and Chief Financial Officer is Douglas T. Linde. Boston Properties bought the building from Citigroup in September 2002, for $1.0 billion.
The Principals were duly escorted out of the building and when last spoken to, were awaiting the arrival of ‘reinforcements’ at a cafe close to the location.
We now await the arrival of the Provost Marshal at the premises of Citibank, 399 Park Avenue, and as soon as we hear anything more, the Editor will update this interim report.
The Principals were requested to turn up at the bank this morning to finalise and sign off the overdue necessary paperwork, which the US official sources stated had been ready since last Thursday, 17th November 2007. Citibank have been stalling ever since.
The Citibank officials concerned with this matter at the highest levels are: William R. Rhodes, Chairman of Citibank, William Ferguson, and Richard Lava, Securities Chief.
THIS IS AN UNPRECEDENTED ESCALATION OF THE GRAVE WANTAGATE CRISIS. WE WILL ADVISE FURTHER AS SOON AS UPDATED INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE FROM THE PRINCIPALS. WATCH THIS WEBSITE PLEASE. THIS IS A VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. STAY POSTED.

The Editor has correctly asserted that if it had not been for Wantagate, no-one would be paid a single red cent. This statement is not false, self-serving or arrogant: IT IS ACCURATE. The reason it is ACCURATE is that the George Bush Sr.-Greenspan ‘NEVER-PAY’ model was constructed in such a diabolically interleaved manner (designed to preclude payouts) that it has always been possible for payments to be torpedoed by means of a single interference at any level or point in the interlinked chain of payments, so that the entire spectrum of payments is aborted. The allegation that the Lee Wanta situation has ‘blocked’ the other payments is an inversion of the facts.
The difference to the situation imposed by the necessity of making the Wanta Settlement is the same point that we have made all along, namely that when Lee Wanta ceased to be dead [see e.g. report dated 6th August 2007], following this Editor’s intervention, it became necessary for unique reasons for his compromise stand-alone payment to be made (even though it was later hijacked by Paulson, in June 2006): whereupon we had to begin pressing for payment in these reports. Had it not been for this and huge related pressures, the Bush Sr.-Greenspan model would have remained intact, as these criminals never had any intention of fulfilling ANY of their financial obligations.
But because of the massive international backing for The Wanta Plan, and because the criminalists MADE THE SERIOUS MISTAKE OF HIJACKING WANTA’S FUNDS AND TRYING TO INCORPORATE HIS NECESSARY (STAND-ALONE) COMPROMISE PAYMENT INTO THE BUSH SR.-GREENSPAN ‘NEVER-PAY’ SCAMMING MODEL, they destabilised their own impregnable arrangements designed to preclude payment EVER, with the consequences that have unfolded since June 2006.
THEREFORE our statement is NOT self-serving, arrogant puffery, but rather a correct and accurate statement of FACT. We are aware of the identity of the individual who appended the disinformation, unscrambled above, to the report in question. As for whoever obtained what information, when and why, this is childish and irrelevant. The fact that others have suffered for years attempting to get these criminals to deliver on their promises and undertakings, is a harsh reality which attracts the sympathy of everyone, but has nothing whatsoever to do with the Wantagate issues in question.
Concerning the lie that The Queen was involved in certain nefarious financial activities, this is a REVERSAL OF THE TRUTH. HM The Queen was DECEIVED BY THE CRIMINAL OPERATIVES, and is A VICTIM OF THEIR EVIL INTENTIONS AND PRACTICES. Her Majesty The Queen was further victimised when they stole her gold on 29-30 March 2007 (which has since been retrieved, with the massive illegal fiat accruals being, we are led to believe, substantially paid for HM’s account).
So THE LONG-RUNNING QUEEN LIE, beloved of certain US disinformation specialists without a cause, is hereby NAILED, as well.
Further, some people were surprised at the Editor’s rather harsh reaction to being threatened (see below). Why ? During the Second World War, the people of London were subjected to horrendous bombardment and the response was the same. A sharp riposte is appropriate in the face of bullying and malevolent threats. Finally, as of late on Friday evening London time, we had prepared, as had been made widely known, a report linking Wantagate directly to the 9/11 mass murders, which the criminal cadres have all along been collectively seeking to cover up. This was ready to be posted; but (although the Editor operates on an unpaid, arms’-length basis) publication of this report has not yet been authorised. That can be interpreted, for the time being, as somewhat encouraging. [18th November: However the officially encouraged promise of payment turned out to be yet another duplicitous ruse to buy more time].
LEGAL SECTION: PEOPLE OUGHT TO READ THIS CRUCIAL INFORMATION
AS IT INDICATES THE DEPTH OF THE DEPRAVITY THAT WANTAGATE HAS EXPOSED.
OUR CONSTANT REPETITION OF THIS INFORMATION IS EVIDENTLY STILL NECESSARY…
• We now repeat, yet again, our familiar summary of the Statutes, securities regulations and fraud information that we have appended to these reports for many months. The reason we append this information is to remind everyone of their clear responsibilities under the US Misprision of Felony legislation, and of course to provide a legal basis for these reports.
LEGAL RECAPITULATION FROM OUR REPORT DATED 30TH AUGUST 2007:
Reiteration of the fraudulent transactions involving Bank of New York Mellon – a bank so arrogant and conspicuously indifferent both to its tarnished reputation and to its grotesque breaches of US law and of N.A.S.D./S.E.C. Regulations, that it now takes first prize in the crowded competition for the title of ‘Most arrogant and corrupt financial institution in America’. At least, this was the case until the perpetration of the ‘Saturday scam’ described above and on 13th November:
Step 1: Fraud in the Inducement: “… is intended to and which does cause one to execute an instrument, or make an agreement… The misrepresentation involved does not mislead one as the paper he signs but rather misleads as to the true facts of a situation, and the false impression it causes is a basis of a decision to sign or render a judgment” Source: Steven H. Gifis, ‘Law Dictionary’, 5th Edition, Happauge: Barron’s Educational Series, Inc., 2003, s.v.: ‘Fraud’.
Step 2: Fraud in Fact by Deceit (Obfuscation and Denial) and Theft:
• “ACTUAL FRAUD. Deceit. Concealing something or making a false representation with an evil intent [scienter] when it causes injury to another…”. Source: Steven H. Gifis, ‘Law Dictionary’, 5th Edition, Happauge: Barron’s Educational Series, Inc., 2003, s.v.: ‘Fraud’.
• “THE TORT OF FRAUDULENT DECEIT… The elements of actionable deceit are: A false representation of a material fact made with knowledge of its falsity, or recklessly, or without reasonable grounds for believing its truth, and with intent to induce reliance thereon, on which plaintiff justifiably relies on his injury…”. Source: Steven H. Gifis, ‘Law Dictionary’, 5th Edition, Happauge: Barron’s Educational Series, Inc., 2003, s.v.: ‘Deceit’.
Step 3: Theft by Deception and Fraudulent Conveyance:
THEFT BY DECEPTION:
• “FRAUDULENT CONCEALMENT… The hiding or suppression of a material fact or circumstance which the party is legally or morally bound to disclose…”.
• “The test of whether failure to disclose material facts constitutes fraud is the existence of a duty, legal or equitable, arising from the relation of the parties: failure to disclose a material fact with intent to mislead or defraud under such circumstances being equivalent to an actual ‘fraudulent concealment’…”.
• To suspend running of limitations, it means the employment of artifice, planned to prevent inquiry or escape investigation and mislead or hinder acquirement of information disclosing a right of action, and acts relied on must be of an affirmative character and fraudulent…”.

• ‘FRAUDULENT CONVEYANCE… A conveyance or transfer of property, the object of which is to defraud a creditor, or hinder or delay him, or to put such property beyond his reach…”.
