THE CORRELATION OF FORCES HAS SHIFTED DECISIVELY AGAINST THE CRIMINALS
In the two preceding reports, we highlighted inter alia the following facts:
• On 20th November 2007, Ambassador Lee Wanta and his party, three of whom are also diplomats holding diplomatic passports, were rudely thrown off the premises of Citibank’s Midtown office at 399 Park Avenue, where the Ambassador’s $4.5 trillion is lodged (or is supposed to be lodged) after armed NYPD policemen had been summoned to the scene by Boston Properties, the owners of the building, on the specific orders of Robert Rubin, the interim Chairman, and contrary (we believe) to the wishes and intentions of Mrs Catherine Weir, the Citibank executive who, we are also led to believe, is reportedly empowered to finalise the Wanta transaction.
• The party visited the bank to meet with Mrs Weir and the meeting was sabotaged by Rubin. The Ambassador and his diplomatic colleagues had intended, and had been led to believe, that they would be signing the necessary documents relevant to the Master Custodial Account set up within the Morgan Stanley securities account with Citibank, as arranged last year from Brussels.
• The meeting that had been arranged for 10.00 am. While this outrage was being perpetrated against the diplomats – signifying Citibank’s cynical contempt for the entire world diplomatic community, to the subsequent reported disgust of governments around the world – a round-table conference in Washington, DC, attended inter alia by the Provost Marshal General, representatives from the White House, other Federal agencies and the US Treasury, openly discussed the slicing and dicing of the $1.575 trillion of tax (35% of $4.5 trillion) payable on Ambassador Lee Wanta’s settlement, ostensibly behind the backs of Congress, even though no tax had been paid because:
• Ambassador Wanta had not been paid the money that he owns, by Citibank.
• At about 6.00pm. following the termination of the Washington round-table meeting, the Ambassador’s party, which had finally left the Starbucks coffee house in the locality and were returning to their hotel, received an authorised telephone call from an official attendee at the conference, in which the outcome of the meeting was conveyed to the Ambassador.
When preparing the previous two reports, the Editor was staggered by this fact and could not understand how these demented officials, who were flouting the US Constitution and by-passing the US Treasury (with the Treasury’s participation), could have had the audacity and effrontery to inform the Ambassador what they had been doing with the tax he had not paid, especially given that it should be paid exclusively to the Treasury.
The Ambassador has since informed the Editor that the participants at the round-table conference THOUGHT THAT THE AMBASSADOR HAD BEEN PAID.
DECONSTRUCTION OF THE APPALLING EVENTS OF 20TH NOVEMBER
Let us deconstruct this assault on the US Constitution and flagrant by-passing of the Treasury and Federal Budget, in more detail:
1. The Executive Branch participants at the round-table conference in Washington on 20th November supposedly thought that the Ambassador had been paid.
2. The Executive Branch participants at the round-table conference in Washington recklessly assumed that the Ambassador would have no objection to the tax that HE ALONE CAN PAY being siphoned off to bypass the Treasury so that the American taxpayer would ‘never’ know that he and she had been swindled (see below).
If so, they forgot that Ambassador Wanta and his colleagues will brook no illegality whatsoever. Did they foolishly imagine that they would make an exception in this instance?
3. The Executive Branch participants at the round-table conference in Washington were slicing and dicing the $1.575 trillion tax windfall in open collaboration with the Paulson Treasury so as to meet Mr Paulson’s corrupt requirement that the $1.575 trillion never should never sully the overcooked books of the Treasury, let alone interfere with the false accounting of the Office of Management and Budget. Otherwise all hell would be liable to break loose.
4. The Executive Branch participants at the round-table conference in Washington, in collaboration with the Treasury, were openly usurping the exclusive prerogative of the American Congress to make appropriations, without reference to Congress (or alternatively, with the corrupt knowledge of Congress: take your pick). Therefore, they were thumbing their noses at the Constitution and signifying the de facto redundancy of the tax-allocation powers of the Executive Branch.
5. Fundamental motivations underlying this unprecedented constitutional assault included:
5.1 To grab slices of the tax windfall for the various competing Federal agencies and Departments, without the say-so of legislators, thereby deceiving Congress (we must still assume) which would accordingly be liable to be misled subsequently about the US agencies’ and Departments’ FUTURE FINANCING REQUIREMENTS. Thus, if, say, Agency X had awarded itself $100 billion by means of this illegal backdoor method at the round-table conference, it would be needing $100 billion LESS in the subsequent budget, wouldn’t it?
But of course the fact that it had received a windfall $100 billion via this illegal mechanism would have been hidden, so that Agency X would be liable seek appropriations of $100 billion MORE in the subsequent budget than would be necessary, meaning that the taxpayers would be swindled by the small matter of $100 billion. All to subsidise the official financial fraudsters’ secret operations.
The brainy man in the American street is more than capable of understanding such an equation.
5.2 To defraud the American taxpayer on a gargantuan scale.
• Here is how the American taxpayer is being defrauded:
WANTA’S $1.575T TAX SHOULD HAVE HIT TREASURY BACK IN JUNE 2006
The US Treasury should have received, or have had access to, the 35% tax payable (under the terms of the classified accord with Wanta dated May 2007), back in June 2006, when Mr Henry M. Paulson Jr. first hijacked the Ambassador’s $4.5 trillion Settlement.
Instead of which, Paulson diverted the money (see these Wantagate reports) so that the tax was never paid to the Treasury when it should have been paid. Therefore:
• The Treasury did not have the benefit of the windfall funds on its books, and borrowed vast sums of money that it ought NOT to have borrowed instead. In other words, the US Treasury’s books were COOKED and the $1.575 trillion was hidden from view, so that Paulson could manipulate these ‘real money’ funds with his cronies and corrupt banking and intelligence associates, without anyone (so he may have imagined at the outset) ever noticing.
• It was all going to be hushed up.
• Republican Party defrauded: In the third quarter of 2006, we repeatedly and tediously pointed out that the (undeserving) US Republican Party could have approached the mid-term elections on a tax-cutting ticket, promising for example the scrapping of the ‘death tax’, reductions in US income tax, or any other enticement it fancied, based upon the Treasury’s transformed financial position arising from the windfall $1.575 trillion, plus the expected $200 billion tax yield per banking day arising from activation of The Wanta Plan. These early reports are of course still accessible in the Archive, and were extensively reproduced in International Currency Review. But the Republican Party was fast asleep, and missed its chance.
(We don’t go into WHY here: we just state the obvious).
• US taxpayers have thus been paying MORE TAX THAN THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN PAYING, thereby financing the fraudulent financial manipulations over which Paulson and his corrupt associates in Government and the financial institutions have been presiding.
• Accordingly, Henry M. Paulson has, for the past 18 months, been systematically and consciously DEFRAUDING ALL AMERICAN TAXPAYERS by withholding the Wanta Settlement from its rightful owner. REPEAT: US Treasury Secretary Paulson has been perpetrating systematic fraud against the American taxpaying public.
• He has DELIBERATELY prevented the crediting of vast sums of money to the Treasury.
FALSE OFFICIAL ‘SURPRISE’ THAT WANTA HAD NOT BEEN PAID
It therefore follows that when an official from the round-table meeting held in Washington, DC, telephoned the Ambassador’s party at around 6.00pm on 20th November to advise them of what had been decided, and expressed ‘surprise’ that the Ambassador had not in fact been paid by Citibank but had instead had been languishing in a Starbucks out on the street for nearly eight hours, that ‘surprise’ was, we suggest, wholly artificial and deceptive.
As in the fall of 2006, the line was, ‘Oh, you haven’t been paid? We thought you had been paid’. Does that sound in any way familiar? It is an exact repeat of Paulson’s trickeries in October 2006.
EVERY TIME THEY ‘TRY IT ON’, THEY TRIP OVER THEMSELVES
But as has happened throughout Wantagate, each time these crooks ‘try it on’ they get caught. This time, they were being just a little bit too crafty, and the result has been disastrous for them (to put it mildly). For by revealing what had been going on at the round-table meeting in Washington on 20th November, they provided the evidence with which they will all be hung out to dry (maybe, if they are not extremely careful, in some cases, from lamp posts, as George H. W. Bush Sr. once allegedly and maybe prophetically anticipated, according to legend).
RECAPITULATION OF THE UNDERLYING EVIL INTENT
For in summary once again, the participants at the round-table conference confirmed by their reprobate behaviour that:
• Their purpose, in part, was to prevent audits of Federal finances which will expose the colossal ongoing financial corruption and bilking of Federal funds that has been going on for many years.
• They were plotting behind the backs of Congress to parcel out the $1.575 trillion off the Treasury’s books, so that nobody would notice that the funds had ever existed.
• Alternatively they were plotting with corrupt Members of Congress ditto.
• Either way, they were usurping the exclusive prerogative of Congress to make appropriations, thereby tearing up the American Constitution in practice and creating an illegal precedent for asserting that Congress has no role to play in allocating taxpayers’ funds. (We take this to an extreme here, but we do so in order to EMPHASISE THE GRAVITY OF THE SITUATION).
• They were openly defrauding the American taxpayer in the manner described.
• They were dishonestly creating the ‘need’ for the Treasury to borrow far more money than it should be borrowing (if indeed it should have been borrowing any money at all).
• They were wantonly fiddling the books so that the Treasury would ‘need’ to ask Congress for an increase in the Statutory Debt Limit (a device established by Congress in 1940 which is supposed to impose residual Congressional control over the expenditure of the Executive, but has long since become a semi-farce) – whereas of course if the Wanta $1.575 trillion had been made available by the Ambassador to the Treasury in June 2006, none of this would have been necessary.
• And, most grossly of all, they were doing all this in open collaboration with the Paulson Treasury, which was represented at the meeting, and thus of course with his full cooperation and knowledge.
PAULSONS’S DUPLICITOUS PLEAS TO CONGRESS SHOW HE DIDN’T INTEND TO PAY
The record shows quite clearly that Henry M. Paulson never had any intention that Ambassador Wanta should receive the money which he owns. For instance, on 30th June 2007, the Treasury notified Congress that the Government would be likely to reach the then existing Debt Limit of $8.965 trillion by October (it had been raised from $8.184 trillion in March 2006). And from July onwards, the Bush Administration kept badgering Congress, urging that it should be increased.
On 30th July, Paulson wrote to the Senate asking it to pass the necessary legislation. On 19th September, Paulson wrote to Congressional leaders, again urging rapid Senate approval of the suggested $850 billion Debt Limit increase, adding, with consummate deceit, that ‘the Full Faith and Credit of the United States, to which we all remain committed, is a national asset and a cornerstone of the global financial system’.
As we pointed out at the time, no-one has been more systematically responsible for the wholesale trashing of the ‘Full Faith and Credit of the United States’ than Henry M. Paulson Jr., a dissolute financial operative who has, to boot, been systematically defrauding the American taxpayer.
COVER PROVIDED BY PAULSON HAS BEEN BLOWN
Payees who have been agitating and banging on doors to demand payment should have been paying attention to Paulson’s agitation for his $850 billion increase in the Statutory Debt Limit, which revealed with crystal clarity that he had no intention of paying Wanta the money that belongs to him, and that Paulson assumed all along that he could continue diverting and converting the Ambassador’s funds ad infinitum.
By adopting this stance, he provided cover for his corrupt co-conspirators in the intelligence services and the banks to continue defrauding the Ambassador and the American taxpayer – a cover which has been BLOWN TO SMITHEREENS BY THE EVENTS OF 20TH NOVEMBER 2007.
The Editor would like to add that he has sort of ‘specialised’ in the US federal Budget since the second half of the 1970s. We have published several issues of International Currency Review devoted exclusively to analysing and explaining fraud in the Federal Budget. In the 1980s, the Editor sought to persuade his Oxford College to allow him to study for a paid extra-mural PhD in ‘American Budgetology’ (seriously), but Christ Church advised that not a single academic was available at Oxford or at any other British University, to supervise such studies.
THE EDITOR’S EXPERIENCE OF U.S. FEDERAL BUDGETOLOGY
The Editor is therefore aware of course that the US Federal Budget has been bedevilled by sophisticated ‘smoke and mirrors’ effects for decades. The most grotesque of these that are currently visible to the naked eye is the fact that surplus accruals on the so-called ‘earmarked’ Trust Funds in the Budget are required by law to be invested in the ‘Federal Funds’ (used for current spending). Therefore, the accruals in the Trust Funds are routinely squandered. That means that the Trust Fund surpluses must be added back TWICE in order to display the Federal Government’s ‘true’ liability.
For instance, according to the new (outdated) FY2008 Office of Management and Budget data (1) the estimated ‘Gross Federal Debt’ for the end of FY 2008 is to be $9,575,497 billion, with $4,230,058 billion of this total held by Federal Government Accounts.
OK, the debt is ‘held’ by Federal Government Accounts, but the Trust Fund debt represents a huge liability of an earmarked $4,230,058 billion that has already been spent. Therefore, in order to arrive at the ‘correct’ sum of Gross Federal Debt outstanding, one has to ADD BACK the $4,230.058 billion to the published ‘Gross’ figure, yielding a ‘true’ Revised Gross Federal Debt liability of $13,805,555 billion [$9,575,497 billion plus $4,230,058 billion].
We are of course simply using the PUBLISHED DATA, but experts inform us that there are in fact at least EIGHT different US Federal budgets, with only the most favourable being massaged for public consumption. It is also known that, within the notorious parameters of US Federal budgetology, the last fiscal year for which the Federal Budget numbers could be considered in any way ‘reliable’, was FY 1996. Accordingly, the US Federal Budget has been falsified ever since, which means that the Treasury’s own numbers have been falsified as well, which means that the financial markets have been misled and that the Treasury has based its borrowing requirements upon falsified data, with negative consequences for financial market conditions generally.
NON-REMITTANCE OF WANTA’S TAX HAS BEEN SEVERELY DETRIMENTAL
But FAR WORSE THAN ANY OF THIS is the UNPRECEDENTED SCANDAL of $1.575 trillion having been wilfully withheld from the Budget and the Treasury because Treasury Secretary Paulson took it into his head, in collaboration with President Bush and Vice President Cheney et al, to engage in 18 months of duplicitous financial fraud by hijacking and exploiting Ambassador Wanta’s $4.5 trillion agreed-upon Settlement funds with the willing and greedy assistance of the corrupt US banks and their intelligence community co-conspirators.
Obviously, as we pointed out from June 2006 onwards, if The Wanta Plan had been implemented when it should have been (18 months ago), the world financial economy would not be in the grave condition that is overwhelming it today, which we predicted this summer and in September 2006.
PAULSON HAS SWINDLED AMERICAN TAXPAYERS:
BY HIS BEHAVIOUR, TREASURY SECRETARY PAULSON AND HIS CORRUPT COLLEAGUES SWINDLED THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER, BAMBOOZLED THE U.S. AND INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL MARKETS, AND HAVE MISREPRESENTED THE UNITED STATES’ TRUE FINANCIAL POSITION BEFORE THE WORLD – IN ORDER, AS WILL SOON BE PROGRESSIVELY REVEALED, TO COVER UP MONSTROUS LONG-TERM FINANCIAL MISDEMEANOURS WHICH HAVE CORRODED THE ENTIRE SYSTEM, ALL PRESIDED OVER BY THE BUSH AND CLINTON GANGSTERS AND THEIR BANKSTER ASSOCIATES.
A MASSIVE AUDIT OF THE FEDERAL BUDGET IS EXPECTED TO BE LAUNCHED
It is therefore with a sense of justification that we understand that a massive audit of the Federal Budget, stretching back over many years, is now likely to be undertaken. As can be imagined, this process will reveal where the bodies are hidden, and will ultimately expose the massive scale on which the United States has been ransacked by these ruthless financial criminals over the years.
CITIBANK’S ODIOUS BEHAVIOUR AND ‘ACT OF CONVERSION’
Meanwhile back at 399 Park Avenue, Citibank’s deplorably uncouth behaviour not only demeaned that institution almost beyond repair, but further revealed, as we reported in the two preceding postings, that Citibank claimed ownership of Wanta’s funds. This was made legally manifest via the bank’s ‘act of conversion’, which arose at 10.00 a.m. on 20th November 2007 when (a) they refused the Ambassador and his party by wilfully denying them the opportunity to sign the necessary Master Custodial Account and other key documents facilitating the very simple matter of the transfer of the Ambassador’s $4.5 trillion; and (b) Robert Rubin ordered Boston Properties to throw the diplomats ignominiously out onto the street, and summoned two armed NYPD policemen as described.
The combination of these barbaric actions represented, in law, an ‘act of conversion’ and has provided the Ambassador and his colleagues with ‘cause of action’ from which no escape is possible for the bank (whatever it may currently be scheming).
THE UPSHOT WAS TO PROVIDE WANTA WITH HIS ‘CAUSE OF ACTION’
The ‘cause of action’ was a fatal mistake for the bank and its co-conspirators. For it provided the Ambassador with the indisputable rationale for calling upon his formidable latent law enforcement powers. Whereupon, appropriate United States authorities conveyed to Citibank that they must comply with the three conditions upon which the Ambassador and his party will return to the bank, that were itemised in the preceding report. A letter signed by Mrs Catherine Weir on the Citibank letterhead is required, stating a date and time for the necessary overdue meeting; the letter is to provide the account coordinates for the Master Custodial Account set up by Brussels but never finalised due to the disreputable behaviour of Citibank in representing, via its ‘act of conversion’, illegal ‘ownership’ and power to manipulate the Ambassador’s funds; and finally, a ‘good faith’ sum of money to cover the expenses of the Principals (who had been kept waiting around on the road for FORTY DAYS while Wanta’s funds were being traded), in returning to the bank, is to be lodged with a bank account, the coordinates of which were provided through the official channels, by Mr Michael C. Cottrell, M.S., the Executive Vice President and Treasurer of AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc.
• These steps were required to be completed within a specified timeframe (i.e. immediately).
CITIBANK FORMALLY NOTIFIED OF MULTIPLE INVESTIGATIONS
When Citibank failed to comply, the institution was formally notified, in the afternoon of 21st November 2007, that it is the target of multiple Federal investigations; and we have separately ascertained that more than ten US agencies and entities are already involved in these probes
The Editor, looking in on these developments with the benefit of distance, remains in no doubt whatsoever that the intention had been as follows:
1. For Citibank to keep the difference between $4.5 trillion and $1.575 trillion (namely, $2.925 trillion), and of course never to pay the agreed-upon additional interest of $352 billion (which now, on the basis of the Editor’s rough calculation, ought to be approaching $380 billion).
2. For the $1.575 tax payable to bypass the Treasury, thereby defrauding the American taxpayer and in gross defiance of the US Constitution and of the division of powers, and to be split up with the US Treasury’s corrupt connivance and knowledge, between US Federal agencies and Departments behind the backs of the Congress (or with its corrupt cooperation), and most certainly behind the backs of the American people, who were therefore to continue paying more tax than necessary thus continuing to subsidise the criminal operations of this ruthless clique of financial gangsters.
ARE THESE NOT MANIFESTLY IMPEACHABLE OFFENCES?
All these gross offences – which have come to light because, as usual, these arrogant official and banking sector crooks imagined that no-one would notice – seem to the Editor of this service to be impeachable and criminal offences, which, if Washington were not so notoriously corrupt, should result in the immediate impeachment at least of the most senior heads of the US Departments and agencies participating in the round-table conference on 20th November, and of the President and Vice President of the United States, plus the prosecution of the former US Treasury Secretary, and Clinton buddie, Robert Rubin.
CRIMINAL GANGS REPORTEDLY FIGHTING AMONG THEMSELVES
According to latest authoritative reports from special sources, the criminal operatives functioning at the highest levels, past and present, are now at loggerheads with each other, like ever more maddened rats in a sack. Since his accounts (including those in Paraguay and elsewhere in South America) have been frozen, European agents for former President George Bush Sr., have been ringing round the ultra-wealthy, in search of trillions that Mr Bush Sr. allegedly wants to borrow.
They have been getting the brush-off.
THREE QUESTIONS ABOUT POSSIBLE FINANCIAL ABOMINATIONS
THIS intelligence suggests a number of extremely disturbing scenarios, which we will express in the form of questions, to which we do not know the answer:
• Were Wanta’s funds again stolen and is Bush Sr. under extreme pressure to replace them forthwith to get Citibank out of its bind? It is said that Bush Sr. may be looking to borrow $3.0 trillion. The difference between $4.5 trillion and $1.575 trillion, is $2.925 trillion.
• Given Robert Rubin’s close association with the Clintons, is his role in this matter (precipitating his barbaric treatment of the diplomats) in any way modulated by the extreme tensions that are now said to characterise relations between these two notorious political-intelligence crime families?
• Put another way, is Ambassador Lee Wanta currently a victim of a power play in this context, involving blackmail and other Black Arts, that have yet to spill over into the public domain?
CRIMINAL GANSTERS NO LONGER ON SPEAKING TERMS
For the Clintons, Robert Rubin’s buddies, are not speaking to the Bushes and vice versa; while it is also believed that there may be severe tension within each of these crime families, as well. As for Mrs Hillary Rodinski, it is understood that she retains about 30 boxes of materials squirrelled from sensitive files relating to her time as de facto President of the United States, and has let this be known in the circles within which Illuminati-style blackmail may in due course become ‘necessary’.
This would appear to be the main reason that this wicked woman is skating around nonchalantly telling the world that she is the next President of the United States (being uniquely qualified to become the first de facto President to serve for an expected 16 years), not least because she possesses more documents with which to blackmail any recalcitrant opponents than anyone else, except perhaps Al Gore (who would never do such a thing). After all, Rodinski was in the driving seat while her husband was snorting cocaine, wasn’t she, from 1993 to 2000.
• As one superbly informed US wag put it yesterday, ‘she can blackmail them all from jail’.
To end on a less lugubrious note, we’ve also just learned that Bank of America, acknowledged worldwide to be a notoriously crooked US intelligence institution, like Citibank, is indeed being extensively cleansed ‘as we speak’ (not least via the arrests of large numbers of its personnel, partially reported here), and that when it becomes the de facto or announced Central Bank of the United States, it will be, we are now being authoritatively informed, ‘watched like a hawk’.
• The recent assertion by another party that Bank of America is not to be the new US Central Bank is irresponsible disinformation.
• Further, it remains a fact that no-one gets paid until the Wanta mess, orchestrated by Paulson, Rubin, Citibank et al, is ‘sorted’, and this applies whatever the preferences of the various ‘payee’ lobbies may be. That’s the way it is, and always has been since the Greenspan-Bush ‘NEVER-PAY’ model was applied to the Wanta Settlement, as with all the others, whether they like it or not.

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.
