    A Global Matrix of Banksters, Governments and GOLD: http://upintelligence.multiply.com/photos/album/9/1929-2008-World-Gold-War-Secrets “GOLD WARRIORS by, Sterling Seagrave and Peggy Seagrave CHAPTER 17 ( New Version ) Grand Larceny After the first edition of this book was published, we were contacted by new sources with thousands more pages of documentary evidence and answers to many remaining questions. We now have photographic proof that Ben Valmores was in-fact the valet of Prince Takeda during the Pacific War, and was in direct contact with General Yamashita. This is verified by a photo taken by a Japan Army photographer in occupied Manchuria in the summer of 1944. It shows General Yamashita standing next to Prince Takeda, with young Ben Valmores immediately behind the General.1 Prince Takeda went to Manchuria to brief Yamashita, who had just been ordered by Emperor Hirohito to take over command of all Japanese troops in the Philippines. A few days after this photograph was taken, the General flew to Manila. Although the photo was published in in Japan newspapers during 1944, Ben was not identified.2 The picture was one of Ben Valmore’s treasures kept hidden in a tin box until 2-years after his death. More surprising, we located General Yamashita’s chauffeur, Major Kojima Kashii, who gave Santa Romana and General Lansdale the secret locations of twelve ( 12 ) imperial treasure vaults in 1945. At the time, General Yamashita’s chauffeur, Major Kojima Kashii was 31-years-old, serving as an aide to the general, and as his driver. Major Kojima Kashii was captured separately from Yamashita, and put in Bilibad Prison where Santa Romana and General Lansdale had him tortured to reveal the locations of treasure sites the General personally visited during the last year of the war. Later, the story was spread by General Lansdale that Yamashita’s chauffeur, Major Kojima Kashii, committed suicide in his prison cell. We now know in-fact, Yamashita’s chauffeur, Major Kojima Kashii capitulated agreeing to show Santa Romana and General Lansdale twelve ( 12 ) treasure vaults held by Imperial Japan in return for his freedom and a large bribe. Returning to Japan, Major Kojima Kashii kept a low profile with his family until the end of the U.S. occupation during the early 1950s. Kojima Kashii ( travelling under various aliases ) began making discreet trips back to the Philippines with various partners posing as businessmen whom recovered treasure from vaults held by Imperial Japan and officers stashes where gold and gems had been hidden in the closing months of the war. Many of these recoveries were made while on Clark Air Force Base with full knowledge and permission of the U.S. Government. A brief summary of those recoveries while on Clark Air Case appears in our Annotations.3 For more than 50-years, these recoveries kept Kojima Kashii a rich man. On our CDs we have a color photo of Kojima at age 88-years old, taken on his last visit to Manila in 2002, still looking dashing and handsome. Our Filipino source, who met Kojima Kashii in Manila during the 1990s, knew nothing of his past and said at that time Kojima Kashii used his name openly but it meant nothing remarkable to him. Gradually, Kojima Kashii revealed more and more about his background and how he knew the locations of so many vaults, travelling by car with Yamashita. In 2002, Kojima Kashii said that would be his last recovery, and his last visit to Manila because of age and health. When Kojima Kashii did not return, Kojima’s Filipino friend gave us the photo and recounted their adventures treasure hunting together. On Kojima Kashii’s final trip in 2002, his Japanese partners recovered two ( 2 ) metric tons of gold smelted into what some refer to as ‘small biscuit bars’. They were in such high spirits they became careless and had their Filipino helpers drive them directly to a Japanese shipping line in Subic Bay where at a warehouse – beside the pier – the Filipinos were allowed to watch from a distance as Kojima Kashii and his associates slipped the small ingots through a hole in the massive front cylinder of a “steam roller”, typically used to flatten gravel aggregate during highway construction. The opening at the end of the roller was then welded shut and the machine was lifted by crane onto a Japanese freighter enroute to Yokohama for “repairs.” In a moment of nostalgia afterwards, while celebrating the recovery with a bottle of Suntory whisky, Kojima Kashii told our Filipino source what happened during the late Spring of 1945 when General Yamashita moved with his military troops into the wild mountains of the Kiangan Pocket for their last defense of the war. Having no further need of an automobile, General Yamashita ordered Major Kojima Kashii to drive to Dingalan Bay to oversee the offloading of treasure from a Japanese ship to be hid in an onshore tunnel. Basically, General Yamashita gave his aide a chance to escape capture by U.S. troops. Major Kojima Kashii was eventually captured separately. The riddle of Santa Romana’s true allegiance also has been revealed. We were always puzzled by whether he was really a CIA agent, when he seemed ( until the early 1970s ) to know so little about the Agency’s history and covert activities. Authoritative sources, [ attorney Santiago Avila Marques ] in Spain, with strong ties to the Philippines has now confirmed Santa Romana was actually a secret agent of the Vatican. Santa Romana did have ties to the wartime U.S. underground in the Philippines, overseen for General MacArthur by General Whitney, General Willoughby, and Colonel McMicking. After the war, Santa Romana did work in harness with General Lansdale and the CIA, but his real loyalty was to the Vatican. Sources close to the Manila archdiocese always insisted Santa Romana was “working for the Vatican,” not a CIA agent. Our Spanish sources [ attorney Santiago Avila Marques ] has now told us Santa Romana was “training for the Church” before the war. Given that Santa Romana had been married twice – with children from both marriages in a country where divorce was illegal – he was considered a bigamist so, he was clearly not training for the priesthood. Instead, long before the Japan invasion of the Philippines, Santa Romana became a lay member of one of the Vatican orders, most prominent of which are the Jesuits, Dominicans, and Opus Dei. The sources [ attorney Santiago Avila Marques ] refuses to be explicit about which order Santa Romana worked directly for, arguing that ultimately he was working for the Bishops and Cardinals in charge of the Vatican financial office. After decades of shrinking Vatican influence in world affairs, the austere Pope Pius XII ( Eugenio Pacelli ) reached an accommodation with Adolf Hitler giving the Papacy and Vatican increased control of traditionally independent Catholics in Germany. Under Pope Pius XII, the Vatican also was the only state to officially recognize Japan control of Manchuria. Even before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Emperor Hirohito emissaries were pressing the Pope to negotiate an eventual peace settlement to Tokyo’s advantage, allowing Japan to keep the lands it conquered. To sweeten this bid for the Pope Pius XII’s favor, Emperor Hirohito had his financial advisers move $45,000,000 (USD) million to the Vatican Bank in Rome and to Vatican controlled banks in Portugal and Spain.4 After invading the Philippines, Japan military brutality destroyed any hope of Vatican support so, while the Vatican relationship with the Nazis remained ambiguous, its relationship with Japan chilled. As churches and cathedrals were desecrated to dig underground vaults for war loot, and priests and nuns were murdered, agents like Santa Romana worked against the Japanese and kept logs of which churches and cathedrals now hid hoards of treasure. During the war in Luzon, Leyte, Cebu, and other islands Santa Romana ran his own underground of hundreds of agents including priests, bishops, and street rabble. Court documents show that during the Japan military occupation Santa Romana first invented his many aliases to avoid disclosing his real name.5 Because of high-level connections in the Church, and in the underground, the Santa Romana network also included members of the influential family of Jose P. Laurel, pre-war head of a political clique in Luzon, who became the puppet of Japan’s wartime President of the Philippines. This intimate connection, between the Jose P. Laurel and Santa Romana started in the 1920s, runs like a bloody thread through the war, through the gold recoveries after the war, through the secret movement of black gold to banks around the world, through the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, and today it runs right up to the Oval Office of the United States Of America White House. Before the war, Jose Laurel ( 1891 – 1959 ) was a Manila, Philippines Superior Court judge with a grudge going back decades in early 1898 when America sank its own battleship, the Maine, in Havana harbor in order to provoke the Spanish-American War, enabling it to divest Spain of much of it’s overseas empire. In 1901, when the United States seized the Philippines from Spain, and was harshly suppressing Filipino people’s struggle for independence, Jose Laurel’s father was tortured by U.S. soldiers. Later, he studied law at Yale University, he felt snubbed and abused by classmates appearing racist. He went on to study in Tokyo, Japan and became somewhat fluent in the Japanese language. Jose P. Laurel established a law practice in Manila, philippines but detested American colonial government, and began organizing his own organization modelled on syndicates of the archipelago. Jose Laurel was at-heart a nationalist, keen to cultivate acolytes, and quick to make deals with the super-rich overseas China family clans controlling the Philippine economy and underworld. Some of these Hokkien and Fukien China families adopted Spanish names, and were the biggest landowners in Luzon, other than the Church itself. Like Jose Laurel, the Chinese wanted independence for the Philippines – independence from America as well as from Spain. During 40-years of Spain colonial rule, rich Chinese had been victims of official extortion, had their property seized, and were expelled back to China, fairing no better under American rule pandering to the interests of the Chiang Kai-shek corrupt Kuomintang regime.6 Jose Laurel and the Chinese had similar passions. When Jose Laurel was first appointed judge in Manila, he became an ally of Judge Ferdinand Chua, head of one of the six ( 6 ) richest China clan Families in Luzon Province. Because of an affair with a chambermaid, Judge Chua had the odd distinction of being the natural father of the future Philippine dictator, Ferdinand Marcos.7 Although his paternity was never admitted, judge Chua found a husband for the chambermaid, paid for child Marcos’ education, including putting Ferdinand Marcos through law school. In 1928, when young Ferdinand Marcos faced murder charges for shooting a political rival, Judge Jose Laurel took over the case, dismissed all evidence of Marcos’ guilt, and personally handed Marcos’ his law degree. In this way, Jose Laurel created a blood-debt that had to be repaid by Judge Chua. This debt was repaid 6-years later with a massive quantity of Chinese and Filipino gold – 1,665 metric tons, to be exact – loaned to the U.S. Federal Reserve in-exchange for Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ). Why this same gold has become a matter of bitter contention and embarrassment to the U.S. government 70-years later has everything to do with the corruption spawned by the BLACK EAGLE TRUST and the Federal Reserve System. Its similarities to the scandal of the M-Fund in Japan are astonishing. Ultimately, the ghosts of Santa Romana and Jose Laurel have come back to haunt Washington D.C. along with the ghost of former U.S. Attorney General Norbert Schlei, and other victims of such grand larceny. What lies behind this scandal and mischief is surprisingly simple: Once citizens of a country relinquish control of their money to private bankers, they are at the bankers’ mercy; the whole idea. When citizens are then deprived of the right to keep precious metal like gold – having true value because of its rarity – they have no alternative but to make do with paper money printed and manipulated by private bankers; literally sophisticatedly printed Monopoly board game money. In return for printing all the paper money they wish, to profit by manipulating paper money supply to cause inflation or deflation, bankers get to hold all the gold as their Monopoly holdings and once the gold is in their vaults, some retained on display, most of the gold vanishes offshore or into private accounts in Switzerland. The Swiss, in-turn, keep some gold under Zurich Airport where it is in-transit like petty cash, however most precious metal goes into underground vaults deep in Swiss Alps, strongholds of the Swiss Army, secure against nuclear war. Account holders may think some gold or platinum is theirs because they have title to it in bonds or certificates, with lots of supporting paperwork provided by the bank. But – as we’ve seen again and again in this book – if they try to redeem the bonds or certificates, chances are they will end up arrested, imprisoned, or murdered, and their bonds and certificates will be confiscated and vanish. The story of Graham Halksworth, briefly recount in this chapter, is a case in point.8 Even when Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) are denounced as counterfeit they are confiscated and held in secure government facilities, instead of being destroyed on the spot, indicating they are actually not counterfeit. A journalist at the Financial Times told us, “It has now reached a point where you can go into one of the big banks in New York, London, or Zurich and give them one-half metric ton ( approx. 1,100 pounds ) of gold in return for a certificate of ownership, walk around the block for 10-minutes, re-enter the same bank, and the bank will deny ever seeing you before and have you arrested for presenting them with a counterfeit certificate.” He was not joking. In Europe and Asia, this has been the case for centuries. Rulers whose armies and police gave them a monopoly on violence enjoyed squandering the money they stole or confiscated, but they knew nothing about manipulating money and making it grow. So they gave this job to clever financial advisers who served as their bankers. Thereafter, these bankers influenced all policy decisions. When bankers gained too much influence, or rulers found themselves too deep in debt, they put the bankers to death or sent them into exile, thus cancelling the debt. There are obvious equations between murdering people and imprisoning them, as in both cases they are removed. A perfect example was Europe’s first banking network, created by the Knights Templar in the 11th Century and 12th Century. They lent the king of France a lot of money, which made him realize they probably had much more hidden away. He ordered his police and army to arrest all the Knights Templar in a single day, and had their leaders tortured to reveal where the Templar treasure was hidden. When they refused, he had their leaders burned alive at the stake. The king never found the Knights Templar treasure, and the Nazis were still looking for it in the 1940s when they occupied France. Such wicked behavior by ruthless rulers and cunning bankers, is why the founding fathers of America tried doing things differently. From the moment the United States became independent of Britain, it was liberated from British currency and taxation. Money was to be backed by gold and silver and kept under the control of the central government, on behalf of all citizens. But the Federalist clique of Alexander Hamilton, which had strong financial and emotional ties to Old Europe, began lobbying to put U.S. currency in private hands. US Presidents Jefferson, Madison, Adams and others fought this, and two ( 2 ) early attempts to set up a pseudo “United States Bank” ( U.S. Bank ) that was actually in private hands were reversed. In 1816, President Jefferson warned that, “Private banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling posterity.”9 During the Civil War, however, the Federal government went so deep in-debt that the number of profiteering millionaires in America mushroomed. J.P. Morgan, for instance, sold 5,000 defective weapons to the Union Army, which he purchased for $3.50 each and sold for $22 each.10 Railways, steel, oil, and other monopolies grew into what was called The Octopus, controlled by the Rockefellers, Harrimans, Mellons, and others, who also founded their own banks. They learned how to do this with guidance from Morgan and Paul Warburg, who were agents in America of Europe’s enormously rich and powerful Rothschild family.11 Morgan made another fortune in 1895, selling US gold bonds in Europe, through his alliance with the House of Rothschild.12 By 1902, Morgan interests controlled 5,000 miles of railway track in the US. How he ruined thousands of farmers and rivals, is related in the contemporary Frank Norris novel, The Octopus. Andrew Mellon, while Secretary of the Treasury in the 1920s, took advantage of federal tax loopholes and refunded $3,500,000,000 (USD) billion to rich cronies. When U.S. Treasury Secretary Morganthau later tried to bring tax evasion charges against Mellon, the grand jury refused to indict him.13 After a very secret meeting at Morgan’s Jekyll Island estate in 1910, the robber Barons followed the Warburg gameplan to take control of all US currency and gold. As Warburg said at that secret meeting, it was essential not to let American citizens know the Federal Reserve was a cartel of private banks, but to persuade them that it was a government agency.14 In other words, there was nothing “federal” about it, and all control of currency and gold was “reserved” to the private bankers who owned its stock. The majority of that stock was held by banks now called Morgan-Chase and Citibank. This grand larceny began with the carefully contrived election of the bankers’ U.S. Presidential candidate Woodrow Wilson whose administration was “marked by the acquisition and exercise of ‘dictatorial powers’.”15 In short, Wilson was put into the White House by a consortium of bankers and robber Barons, included Warburg, Rockefeller, Morgan, Schiff, Kahn, Harriman, and Europe’s Rothschild whom wanted private control of America’s money supply. By that point, the bankers practically owned a majority of the U.S. Congress. These carefully-coached lawmakers whom drafted the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 pretended to argue for and against it, then when many of its serious opponents left town for the Christmas holidays, President Wilson hastily signed it into law the day before Christmas Eve, while public attention was elsewhere.16 The private banking powers of the Federal Reserve were further increased during World War I, in 1917 when President Wilson pushed through the Trading With The Enemy Act, which gave the president the right to “regulate … [the] export [and] … earmarkings of gold or bullion.”17 Simply put, this meant whenever there was any sort of emergency all the government’s gold could be moved around secretly, and earmarked or designated for whatever purpose Wilson wanted, without any kind of public oversight. Since Wilson had been put in the White House by the big bankers who owned all the stock in the Federal Reserve, this meant they – the private bankers – could thereafter make the gold vanish, and nobody would be the wiser. So much government gold vanished, during the Hoover Administration, that when Wall Street crashed in 1929 the vaults were nearly empty. In 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt used President Wilson’s legal precedent to declare another state of national emergency ( this time the collapse of the U.S. economy in the Great Depression ). Roosevelt urgently needed gold to underwrite social programs for millions of jobless people. Later – in the event of war with either Germany or Japan, or both – he would need a great deal more gold to finance expansion of the U.S. military and its armaments. In those days, money spent on social programs and armaments still had to be backed by gold. The quick way to increase gold reserves was to force citizens to turn over their private gold holdings, and to force all gold mining operations to sell only to the U.S. government. In return they got paper money. The government’s newly acquired public gold would be held by the private Federal Reserve ( the Fed or FED ). Because the FED is a private banking cartel – whose books are not open to the public – it is impossible to know precisely how much gold was acquired in the 1930s. The FED is famous for being Delphic, which means it lies by evasion. This is the reason for the public’s great ignorance about how much gold there is, to whom it belongs, where it is really kept, and how it got there. Bankers, economists, judges and attorneys pretend to know exact details, but it is easy to demonstrate that they twist the facts to suit themselves. United States Treasury Secretary Henry Morganthau continually found himself in conflict with the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Department of State. As he put it, “There is one more issue to be settled … whether the Government – through the Treasury – should control … monetary policy, or whether the control should be exercised through the Federal Reserve Banks that are privately owned.” Morganthau complained that J.P. Morgan had more power than the U.S. Department of State Department, adding, “You can rape me if you want to but I won’t like it.” The Federal Reserve was even issuing gold bearer bonds and certificates with Morganthau’s signature, without the knowledge of Secretary Morganthau.18 U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt ( FDR ) Executive Order 6102 made it illegal for private American citizens living in the United States to hold gold coin, gold bullion, or gold certificates.19 Interestingly, this applied only to American citizens in the continental United States. The Philippines and other U.S. possessions such as Hawaii, Guam, and Samoa, were excluded. U.S. citizens resident in those places could continue to hold gold, other precious metals, and gold certificates. All citizens in the continental U.S. had to turn in their gold ingots and gold certificates in return for Federal Reserve paper dollars at an official price of $20 an ounce. To make it look fair, private banks in America also were obliged to turn over their gold reserves and certificates. This looked like they were giving it to the government, because few people knew the FED was private. American mining companies ( and foreign mining companies, foreign governments and foreign citizens ) were all given a special break and could sell their gold to the FED for $35 an ounce. Because of legal challenges in the courts, it took a few months for U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt’s Executive Order to become law. By 1934, the FED became the legal custodian of all of America’s gold and much foreign gold as well. Gold poured into Fort Knox and other FED vaults in New York City; West Point, New York plus former U.S. government mints in San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Denver.20 A huge influx of European gold, to repay U.S. loans to foreign governments during and after World War I, soon made America the world’s biggest repository of “official” monetary gold. This flow of gold from overseas was further stimulated by gathering war clouds in Europe, by Japan’s annexation of Korea and Manchuria, and incursions into North China. As Hitler became more aggressive, even the British crown jewels were moved to FED vaults in New York City.21 The notion that all this gold somehow belongs to the American people is a carefully cultivated myth. Most people think Ft. Knox is a government vault, but while it is built on government land it is managed by the FED. Since the creation of the Federal Reserve System all the gold vaults of the FED have been guarded by America’s largest domestic private security organizations like DIEBOLD INC., an Ohio based security firm established in 1859.22 In each vault the gold is kept in numbered chambers, and its actual ownership is known to only a handful of FED officials. The largest of these rectangular lockers is 10-feet X 10-feet X 18-feet so each locker is big enough to hold $17,100,000,000 (USD) billion worth of bullion; given a market price of $400 per ounce.23 Not everyone was convinced that the United States was the safest place for their gold, least of all Asians who had an ancient distrust of governments and banks. U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt ( FDR ) and his advisers understood that in South Asia, East Asia, and the Pacific alot of gold was held by overseas Chinese individuals, family associations, and trading networks; by local warlords and criminal syndicates; by wealthy East Indians; by Buddhist sects; by Dutch, French, Portuguese and Spanish colonial families, and by the Catholic Church that had dominated the Philippines for 40-years. Large quantities of gold had been moved out of Europe for safekeeping during World War I and during the Spanish Civil War to sleep in vaults in the Philippines. Wealthy China families, victimized by dynasties and warlords for thousands of years, held their precious metal in secret places or in banks they owned or controlled in Manila, Hanoi, Bangkok, or Singapore. They expected the Japan conquest to spread south to the islands. Through Jose Laurel, Judge Chua, and other China clan elders knew that U.S. President Roosevelt’s U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry S. Morganthau was offering to buy gold from rich individuals and syndicates in Asia and the Pacific, in exchange for Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) or Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ). In 1934, Laurel’s circle pooled their resources and offered to sell Morganthau 1,665 metric tons of gold.24 In return, they would be given 250 separate Federal Reserve bearer bonds, each in a $100,000,000 (USD) million denomination. So at the time of issue, in 1934, this transaction had a total face value of $25,000,000,000 (USD) billion but on maturity – after 32-years, post 1966 – the 250 bonds could be redeemed for a total of $100,000,000,000 (USD) billion. Instead of an outright purchase, the gold was being acquired by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois as a loan paying slightly over $10 (USD) an ounce ( half the existing private gold price ) in return for interest over 32-years resulting in a total of $100,000,000,000 (USD) billion at maturity. This is supported by documents that accompanied the original transaction, reproduced on our CDs. One document, a Federal Reserve Bond Global Immunity – signed by U.S. Treasury Secretary Morganthau Jr. – indicated the purchase was arranged this way “to enable the government of the United States of America to determine the contract in a manner appearing as a loan, which shall be known as Federal Reserve Bond issued by the BANK OF CHICAGO series of 1934.” Each bond had interest coupons attached so, the bearer could collect the interest or let it accumulate until maturity. Essentially, the FED was borrowing that gold for $10 an ounce rather than buying it outright for $20 an ounce. By conclusion of this deal the deal, 1,665 metric tons of gold was transported ( via ship ) from Manila, Philippines to San Francisco, California and then by train to the Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago, Illinois where gold ingots were placed in its vault, meanwhile the 250 Federal Reserve Bonds with supporting official documents were received in exchange by Jose Laurel who distributed them amongst his partners whom put them in the safest places they could find. Some were believed placed in Swiss bank vaults, while others went to Argentina and/or Chile. When the Japan invaded, Laurel – fluent in Japanese – was ordered by Philippine President Quezon – on instructions from Washington D.C. – to offer himself to the Japanese as their puppet President during Japan’s occupation of the Philippines. Philippine President Quezon then fled to the United States. After the war, Washington D.C. hypocritically denounced Laurel as a quisling, to rig the 1949 Philippines Presidential election in favor of U.S. Army General MacArthur’s crony Jose Quirino. MacArthur said he wanted Quirino elected, “or else” all U.S. aid and loans would be cancelled.)25 During the Japanese occupation, Jose Laurel’s son, Pedro Palafox-Laurel was a close friend of Santa Romana from before the war when they secretly became part of the Santa Romana Vatican underground. In 1945, when Santa Romana and General Lansdale tortured and bribed Major Kojima, Pedro Palafox Laurel participated in the gold recoveries. Because of the key role played by Santa Romana, as the gold was recovered and moved to banks throughout the world, a major portion went to the Vatican Bank and other banks tied to the Vatican, as describe in Chapters 4 and 8. It is now clear this is why Santa Romana was treated with such respect by bankers whom came to see him at his Manila HILTON suite. Although Santa Romana remained a secretive figure, and never the subject of a magazine profile in the Philippines or anywhere else, it was not his connection to the CIA that gave him invisibility, but his position as an agent of the Vatican secret services, filling the coffers of the Vatican Bank. Diagrams – reproduced on our CDs of documentation – of the “Umbrella” organization, that moved much of the gold, show security was provided both by the CIA and by the Italy Mafia.26 Collaboration in Europe between the Mafia and the U.S. Office of Strategic Services ( OSS ) began on the eve of war and continued throughout.27 OSS agents were smuggled into Italy through Sicily, and in return – at the end of the war – top Mafia figures were let out of American prisons and allowed to return to Italy where they helped the CIA and Vatican to promote candidates of Christian Democrats to prevent the Communist Party ( Partita Communista Italia – PCI ) from gaining control of the government in Italy. Santa Romana’s stature in the Vatican financial hierarchy must have been assured by his role in restoring solvency to banks linked to the Vatican. This resolves the puzzle of why Santa Romana’s visit to Washington D.C. and his tour of the CIA complex in 1973 was his first acquaintance with the intelligence Agency headquarters and many of its covert operations noted in his diary each evening. Had Santa Romana been all-along an agent of the CIA, he would have received training ( like other agents ) at the Farm in Virginia and known all about Langley, Virginia headquarters and its mythology, but as a lay member of the Vatican secret services his orientation was to Europe – not the U.S. It was the rise of Ferdinand Marcos ( saved from prison by Jose Laurel ) that undercut Santa Romana, took the Umbrella organization out of his hands, broke up his personal network, and turned him into an alcoholic.28 A photograph of Santa Romana taken during this period shows him slouching in an armchair, with a paunch, and a full head of hair – not the tough, sleek, head-shaved Yul Brynner of the immediate postwar years. After the airplane crash death of Philippines President Magsaysay, and his replacement by a conspicuously corrupt Philippines President Macapagal, it was Ferdinand Marcos who came to be seen by Washington D.C. as “our boy” that would get things done. As America was bogged down in Vietnam – anxious for Filipino troop commitment – Ferdinand Marcos was already president of the Philippines Senate and making all the right pro-American campaign noises for Philippines Presidency believed financed by the CIA, overseas China family clans, plus lavish contributions from the Chiang Kai-shek Nationalist regime in Taiwan ( formerly Formosa ). Ferdinand Marcos won a landslide victory, entering Malacanang Palace on December 30, 1965.29 Even in the Philippines, where life is cheap, President Marcos was uniquely predatory and murderous. Once in the Philippines Presidential Palace, he began hijacking all the private wealth he could get his hands on. Jose Laurel had died in 1959, and the Laurel clan was now headed by one ( 1 ) of his sons named Pedro Palafox Laurel, Santa Romana’s pal, business partner, and fellow Vatican agent. Unfortunately for the Laurels, when their Federal Reserve Bonds reached maturity, in 1966, the Philippines election of President Ferdinand Marcos made it too dangerous to bring these bonds – out of hiding – for presentation to the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve for redemption as Marcos would learn about it immediately and stop at nothing to confiscate the bonds to sell them to Washington D.C. for his own profit. Marcos had long known about Santa Romana’s gold recoveries with Lansdale, and knew Romana had hundreds of accounts ( as a straw-man for the Vatican, CIA or Black Eagle Trust ) in banks all over the world, but Marcos also knew that Santa Romana had personal bank accounts at CITIBANK and other banks in Manila and Hong Kong where he salted gold for his own use. As there is no evidence of extravagance in his personal life, Santa Romana seems to have diverted gold into many offshore private accounts because of what most others were also doing. It is astonishing that the CIA and other U.S. government agencies and individuals claimed those accounts contained money or gold was somehow the property of the United States rather than the property of the people from whom it was stolen, or Santa Romana heirs, or the Vatican ( employer of Santa Romana ), or from where it was apparently stolen – Philippines citizens whose national soil it remained for years or decades – whom need it a great deal more than bankers. Once Ferdinand Marcos became Philippines President, he went after Santa Romana who was forced – to sign over Powers of Attorney – from use of extortion to deprive him of several large gold accounts, including all those at Manila banks that were vulnerable to pressure from Malacanang. All of Santa Romana’s defense efforts were failing when in September 1974 he was driven into a deep alcoholic depression, collapsed, was hospitalized, and several weeks later died at home with members of his family in Cabanatuan City. Marcos quickly looted Santa Romana’s few remaining accounts in the Philippines, and went after others in New York, Hong Kong, and European capitals. In 1983, when Marcos heard rumors that the Laurel family had a hoard of Federal Reserve bonds and gold bearer certificates on deposit at Union Bank of Switzerland ( UBS ), he had Pedro Palafox Laurel and his business partner Domingo Clemente arrested and brought to the Black Room at the Presidential Palace where, over a period of weeks, the two ( 2 ) men were slowly tortured to death by General Ver.30 Domingo Clemente knew nothing about the bonds, and Pedro Palafox Laurel refused to reveal their locations. Pedro Palafox Laurel’s widow, Loretta, subsequently fled to Spain to live. From then on, the Laurels lived in fear. It was only in 1986, when Ferdinand Marcos was removed from power by the U.S. President Ronald Reagan Administration, and put under house arrest in Hawaii where he later died, that Laurel’s heirs and surviving members of his circle dared begin to recover the bonds from their hiding places. Unfortunately, at this very moment, another large stash of Federal Reserve Notes ( FRNs ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRBs ) began coming onto the market, recovered from U.S. military planes that had crashed long ago in the jungles of Mindanao Island in The Philippines. According to reliable sources, whom visited the wrecked aircraft and recovered the dogtags of the crew, the truth is as follows: In May 1948, four ( 4 ) U.S. Air Force military airplanes – on their way from California to Malaysia Borneo – refuelled at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines ( just north of Manila ) and then continued toward Borneo where a typhoon, that had been brewing in the Western Pacific, moved directly into their flight path causing all four ( 4 ) airplanes to crash into the mountains of Mindanao Island. Of the doomed flight, two ( 2 ) airplanes were B-29 Superfortresses ( the type that dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima, Japan and Nagasaki, Japan ), a new modified version of the same military airplane called a B-50, and a much smaller twin-engined B-26. The lead B-29 airplane held serial number 7695132. Among the dead aboard were General Frank Reagan, Colonel John Reagan, and crewmen named Colling, Dalton, Johnrey, and Withor. The two ( 2 ) B-29s were carrying thousands of Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) in Wells Fargo Bank boxes from Chase Manhattan Bank. The B-29s were wearing the livery of the General Clair Chennault Civil Air Transport ( CAT ), partly owned by the CIA through a front named AIRDALE CORPORATION ( Delaware, USA ).31 In 1948, the CIA used the Civil Air Transport ( CAT ) to fly 4,000,000 million tons of supplies ( each month ) to General Chiang Kai-shek forces rapidly losing the Republic of China to Communists. These two ( 2 ) Civil Air Transport ( CAT ) B-29 Superfortress military airplanes – loaded with billions of dollars worth of Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) – were on their way to Borneo Malaysia on a roundabout route to southwestern China by way of Thailand and Burma. The B-50, was recently been built by BOEING to carry nuclear weapons for the U.S. military Strategic Air Command ( SAC ), held a cargo of 117 canisters of Uranium. It is believed during this time that Washington D.C. was seriously considering dropping “dirty bombs” on Red China and North Korea. The B-26, escorted the B-50 to a Thailand secret airbase being prepared by the U.S. military Strategic Air Command ( SAC ) in the event of a nuclear war. What concerns us here is the mission of the two ( 2 ) B-29s with all the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ). Professor Richard Aldrich of Nottingham University and co-editor of the journal Intelligence And National Security, described the strategic situation in 1948 in testimony before a British court in 2003: As Chairman Mao China forces advanced through China in 1948, Nottingham University’s Dr. Richard Aldrich said that the United Kingdom and United States dreaded the prospect where one of the world’s largest stocks of gold – worth ( at then-current market price ) $83,000,000,000 (USD) billion – would fall into Communist hands so, it was decided to extract the gold reserves from China before Communists could seize them. The CIA provided the means for this gold bullion rescue mission by flying B-29 bombers disguised in the livery of its Civil Air Transport ( CAT ), later renamed AIR AMERICA, that flew numerous missions to bring huge shipments of gold out of mainland China. Where did the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) fit in? Professor Richard Aldrich said they may have been used “for persuading managers of major banks located in the interior of China to part with their vast stocks of gold.” Printing Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) with a face value much greater than that of the gold they were to replace, said Professor Richard Aldrich, served to encourage the banks or wealthy individuals to swap their gold for the bonds and notes that would be easier to hide and later smuggle out of China to be cashed in the West. As Aldrich said, the U.S. almost certainly had no intention of honoring the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) anyway, explaining the CIA only emulated Great Britain’s Special Operations Executive ( SOE ) arranging the printing and circulation of massive quantities of counterfeit currency and bonds during war. “Foreign Office files also show the CIA was involved in other currency issues, including the movement of printing plates for Chinese currency,” Aldrich testified. But why were such huge quantities of Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) flown to China? “Because of the possibility of operational loss,” Aldrich told the court, “surplus amounts of FRNs were required. China regional banks – receiving Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and/or Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) in return for their gold – were aware the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) were likely to be redeemable for only a portion of face value, therefore a much larger value in Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) would be required than the total value of gold Americans and Chinese Nationalists were trying to extract from China.”32 Aldrich was adamant the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) being flown to China were authentic, however he was uncertain whether the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) involved in the 2003 lawsuit were of the same provenance. “I cannot prove that these Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) were part of the operation to extract gold from China,” Aldrich said, “but there is absolutely no doubt such an operation took place.”33 We interviewed pilot Eric Shilling, one ( 1 ) of the original Flying Tigers in the American Volunteer Group ( AVG ) in 1941, who went on to fly for Civil Air Transport ( CAT ) and the CIA after the war. Eric Shilling told us he made numerous flights from Guam and Clark Air Fiorce Base in the Philippines, ferrying Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) and Chinese Nationalist secret agents as far as Chengtu, Sinkiang Province, China and flying boxes of gold out to Taiwan. The B-29 had a long round-trip suitable range and Eric Shilling was skilled at flying the aircraft at 30-feet to 40-feet above the ocean to enter and leave China airspace without being detected by radar. Eric Shilling told us General and Madame Chiang Kai-shek were fully informed of their flights. Once, on his return to Taipei, Eric Shilling was invited to the presidential palace where Madame Chiang Chiang Kai-shek praised his efforts by saying, “I did not go to bed until I knew you had landed safely.”34 Whether the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ), found in the crashed Civil Air Transport ( CAT ) aircraft in the Philippines on Mindanao Island, should be considered real or counterfeit raises interesting legal, moral, and ethical questions as they were printed by the U.S. Government at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington D.C. where the CIA has an office occupied full-time in such activities, according to a CIA source we interviewed who worked there for years. If a Promissory Note is created by the U.S. government, and exchanged for gold by the U.S. Government, it can reasonably be argued it is a legitimate document and therefore binding upon the government to redeem it. For if a government can freely create false financial documents, at whim for whatever purpose, how does one know what to trust and what not to trust. The same question might be raised about U.S. currency printed by a Federal Reserve that exists for private profit, for the government and the banks owning stock in the FED to renege on redeeming such bonds would be the equivalent of grand larceny. In the late 1980s, just after Marcos died, the wreckage on Mindanao Island was discovered by a tribe of aboriginals who found the B-29s full of incomprehensible ( to them ) Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ). Most of the boxes were still sealed with wax and official stamps but some had broken open on impact. When these were carried out, to a district town for translation into Tagalog, it was understood the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) were important from astronomical denominations. Quantities of these Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) suddenly appeared in the market as everyone and his brother tried to cash them in. The FED was not buying, and neither was the U.S. Treasury, which automatically denounced them all as counterfeit. Secret Service agents were sent to Manila, Philippines to pose as buyers so they could entrap brokers trying to sell the bonds. Assassins also were sent. An Australia private investigator told of the warning he received, “If I persisted in pursuing these items, I would most likely receive a visit from some very unpleasant men whose job it is to secure the safety of the USA against any threats to the stability of its economy. I was informed, that if I ever tried to redeem them, I would not see another birthday. A CIA friend told me that these Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) were all over the world and not only in the Philippines. He said the family of Chiang Kaishek owned large quantities. Some China families, involved with secret societies – such as the Cherry Blossom and the Maple Leaf, also had them in certain number sequences that had been assigned to those networks. Ferdinand Marcos had large quantities of FRNs that he was given by President Nixon in return for gold – which were referred to as ‘Tricky-Dickie Notes’.”35 Unfortunately for the Laurel Family, this was the same period when President Reagan talked of putting the U.S. back on the gold standard. U.S. President Nixon had taken the dollar off the gold standard in 1970 and made it legal for the first time in nearly 40-years for private American citizens to own gold. As a result the official price shot up – going above $800 an ounce – during the early U.S. President Reagan years. If, at that moment, the Laurel’s had demanded payment in full, for the 1,665 metric tons of gold they had “loaned” to the Federal Reserve in 1934, that amount of gold would have been worth over $35,000,000,000,000 (USD) trillion, however the Laurel Family were bound by the terms of their original agreement that had a face value on maturity of only $100,000,000,000 (USD) billion but even $100-billion was more than Washington D.C. could face paying. In fact, Washington D.C. had never really intended to redeem any of the 1934 Morganthau issue Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) – except at very deep discounts of 1% to 10% – and then only to “favored” individuals. If the dollar was going to be put back on the gold standard, the White House had to block any attempts to redeem gold certificates and Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ). No new Administration likes to be held accountable for huge ‘debts’ incurred by previous administrations. Redeeming those Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) would represent a huge drain on United States assets so, the U.S. President Reagan team had to come up with a strategy to block any attempt by owners or bearers to redeem the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ). Curiously, it was also in 1986 that the Federal Reserve decided to recast all the gold bars in its vaults, changing “good delivery” bars from traditional ‘rectangular shape’ ingots into ‘trapezoidal shape’ ingots. Why this was done was never satisfactorily explained, but it allowed the FED to change hallmarks, serial numbers, and all other bar identifiers that included re-papering and ear-marking, effectively ‘erasing all record of ownership’ of many thousands of tons of gold in different vaults.36 For a government that was up to its ears in the Iran Contra swindle, Death Squads, October Surprise, Swiss numbered accounts, and lying to U.S. Congress Committees the answer was obvious. Declare all Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) floating around Asia “counterfeit,” including both the Laurel’s Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) and the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) found from the crashed military planes. Here was a fraud used many times by banks all over the world, when a gold certificate was issued in exchange for bullion placed on deposit, embedded codes were used – and it was believed by some to include misspelled words – to “assure” the owner’s certificate matched bank records exactly. Later, misspellings were easily cited ‘evidence’ of fraud. In Japan, Prime Minister Tanaka had gone one step further by designing his notorious “57s” to look completely different from normal Japan government bonds. If he wanted to redeem one, for an ally, he could. If he didn’t, he could declare it counterfeit and point-out it didn’t even look like a Japan government bond. The U.S. President Reagan Administration answer was similar where a large number of Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) and gold certificates were printed – at the U.S. Bureau of Printing And Engraving – on the ‘wrong type of paper’ with a comic variety of ‘deliberate errors’. Many were engraved with the ‘wrong faces’, ‘wrong mottos’, ‘wrong designs’, ‘wrong signatures’, and even ‘engraved and printed in traditional Chinese characters’. This would be a hilarious disinformation campaign, flooding Asia with blatant forgeries, to make the whole idea ridiculous. It would cut legal legs off anyone trying to ‘redeem legitimate gold certificates’, ‘redeem legitimate Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN )’, or ‘redeem Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB )’ as they could easily be laughed right out of legitimacy by any justice court. Special engraving plates were sent to Manila, Philippines where the CIA already had presses to print them. And to confuse the issue, on Mindanao Island where U.S. military planes had crashed earlier, two ( 2 ) “missionaries” set themselves up with high technology presses – saying they were going to print Bibles but instead ran-off obviously bogus Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) to added the impression they too were false also. It is crucial not to confuse the bogus Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) flooding Asia and the Pacific in the 1990s, with the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) issued to the Jose Laurel Family in 1934 by U.S. Treasury Secretary Morganthau and Federal Reserve. These, which we have examined very closely and been ajudged authentic – by scientists at a leading university of Spain and groups of experts elsewhere – are printed correctly in every detail on precisely the paper used for the Morganthau issue in 1934 with the same colored threads running through the fabric visible under a microscope. The entire notarized forensic investigation of the Jose Laurel Family Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) – in both English and Spanish – appears on Volume Three ( 3 ) of our CD documentation. In summation, these Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) were not created for a covert CIA operation in China but are authentic in every respect. Because they are authentic, the FED and U.S. Treasury are ethically bound to redeem them, however there are mitigating factors ( banks, prosecuting attorneys, and trusted judges always discover mitigating factors ). For one thing, ideally these Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) should have been redeemed in the decade following their maturity in 1966, but that would have been suicidal because Philippines President Marcos was murdering people to get his hands on them, plus Marcos was “America’s Boy.” One of those murdered was Pedro Palafox Laurel, and with his wife Loretta terrified was therefore late in seeking to redeem them. As the inheritance of Lorretta Laurel represented the largest part of the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ), the Laurel circle decided to have a prominent Spanish attorney approach the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ( FDIC ), and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois. They chose Santiago Vila Marques, member of a wealthy Catalan family owning thousands of acres along the Costa Brava, north of Barcelona, Spain. Santiago Vila Marques, with family ties – going back generations – to the Philippines, said “half of whatever was recovered must go to projects to help raise living standards of the poor in the Philippines, enlisted attorney Carey Portman ( Chicago, Illinois ) and attorney Laurence J. Friedman ( Texas friend of George W. Bush ) to represent Loretta Laurel if the case came to trial in the U.S. These attornies repeatedly contacted ( 2000 – 2001 ) the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and U.S. Department of the Treasury Department presenting them with authenticated copies of one ( 1 ) of the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) with all related documents in the 1934 transaction. Eventually the attornies received a response, different from Japan’s response to former U.S. Assistant Attorney General Norbert Schlei whose clients were trying to get Tokyo, Japan to ‘redeem the “57” series’ I-O-Us. The FED, FDIC, and Treasury stopped short of denouncing the Laurel Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) as counterfeit and/or fraudulent, but instead said they “could not verify” they were real; a crucial distinction! “After carefully reviewing the documents, you and your client submitted, we are unable to verify that the Federal Reserve Bond ( FRB ) and related documents … are authentic. In addition, as I indicated to Mr. Portman – by telephone – [ U.S. Federal Reserve Board ] Chairman [ Alan ] Greenspan is not available to meet or speak with you or your client concerning this matter.”37 The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois claimed to be “unable to verify” the Federal Reserve Notes ( FRN ) and Federal Reserve Bonds ( FRB ) authenticity. An affidavit from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois accounting manager Mark Taylor stated, “There was no record of the issuance or the existence of these bonds whatsoever.” U.S. Department of the Treasury financial specialist William G. Curtin stated, “…the Treasury Department has no record that it issued any of the documents in question, and that the Treasury has never issued any Federal Reserve bearer bonds of any kind.”38 Why were both the FED and U.S. Treasury claiming they had no record of such a transaction? Why did they not claim that the documents were forgeries, or counterfeit, and bring criminal charges against Laurel and her attorneys? Why were they merely “unable to verify” anything? They were stonewalling. They ‘did not say records of their issuance did not exist’, only that they “could not be found”. They’d gone missing. Not saying the documents were fake, they said only that they were “unable to verify” if they were real. This was doubletalk, like the trial of former U.S. Assistant Attorney General Norbert Schlei, where U.S. officials insisted they could find “no record” of America ever bribing Japanese politicians and “no record” of the Yamashita gold. By ‘not claiming the documents were forgeries’, the U.S. Treasury and FED avoided bringing criminal charges that would have otherwise enabled Laurel Family attorneys to pursue further by simply presenting “Discovery Motions” forcing a Court Order for the production of evidence from the FED and U.S. Treasury was not compelled to reveal earlier. The aforementioned statement of William G. Curtin at the U.S. Treasury is sheer nonsense. Of course the “Department of the U.S. Treasury” never issued “Federal Reserve bearer bonds” because those could only be issued by the “Federal Reserve,” a private banking cartel, not a U.S. government agency. Of course the Federal Reserve ( FED ) could insist ‘no records could be found’ because ‘Federal Reserve ledgers have never been open to public scrutiny’ so, how could anyone challenge that statement? In September 2001, the Jose Laurel Family case came to trial at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Chicago, Illinois before Judge Harry D. Leinenweber.39 The judge was an interesting man, married to an interesting woman. A graduate of the University of Chicago law school, he established a law practice in Joliet, Illinois representing U.S. government agencies and went on to become a Republican Party politician serving in the State Of Illinois House of Representatives. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan rewarded Harry D. Leinenweber for loyal service to the Republican Party by appointing him a federal judgeship. When Reagan was succeeded by President George H.W. Bush, Harry D. Leinenweber’s wife – Lynn Martin Leinenweber ( nee Martin ), a U.S. Congress woman – was given a United States Cabinet position as U.S. Department of Labor Secretary. Because she used her maiden name, most did not immediately connect her to being married to federal judge Harry D. Leinenweber. While his wife was Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor, federal judge Harry Leinenweber presided over many lawsuits involving labor discrimination. Many who knew they were married felt he should have disqualified himself because of his wife’s U.S. Cabinet position as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor. When confronted by journalists, Lynn Martin claimed she never discussed federal court cases with her husband. When the U.S. President Clinton Administration took office, Lynn Martin lost her U.S. Cabinet post as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor but became a richly paid legal consultant to the MITSUBISHI CORPORATION, specifically defending MITSUBISHI in a lawsuit charging sex discrimination at a factory in Normal, Illinois not far from the U.S. District Court where her federal judge Harry D. Leinenweber husband worked. Journalists reported MITSUBISHI paid Lynn Martin Leinenweber $2,000,000 (USD) million to oversee a case in Illinois where her husband was a federal judge specializing in labor discrimination cases, raising serious questions about legal conflicts of interest, but despite the $2,000,000 (USD) million paid to Lynn Martin MITSUBISHI lost its legal case against it and paid a record-setting settlement. Subsequently, Judge Leinenweber became involved in hearing cases about a network of U.S. Central Intelligence Agency ( CIA ) owned savings and loan companies used for money-laundering that were then looted and allowed to go bankrupt. One was LIBERTYVILLE SAVINGS & LOAN whose executive board member was Charles Hunter as chief financial officer of the nationwide WALGREEN DRUG store chain. Charles Hunter and others were accused of mismanagement that caused the downfall of the CIA owned LIBERTYVILLE SAVINGS & LOAN resulting in damages of more than $42,000,000 (USD) million lost by account holders ( depending on who tallies the figures ) while several wealthy directors including Charles Hunter were allowed to settle a lawsuit quietly for only $6,000,000 (USD) million. Investigative journalists alleged in public that Illinois federal judge Harry D. Leinenweber received a gift of some $17,000,000 (USD) million to rule in favor of Charles Hunter. The judge did not sue the journalists for slander or libel.40 Therefore, federal judge Harry Leinenweber hardly seemed to be a disinterested party in the lawsuit between the Jose Laurel Family and U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois where a claim of $100,000,000,000 (USD) billion by a foreigner ( Filipina ) against a local ( USA ) federal institution was the taproot of the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago financial structure; losing $100-billion would be like cutting that entire taproot. Predictably, federal judge Harry D. Leinenweber showed bias against Mrs. Loretta Laurel and ruled instead in favor of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois. When it became evident to Laurel’s attorneys the case was rigged, and they were being blocked in the same manner as former U.S. Attorney General Norbert Schlei, they sought to present additional evidence that would overcome the stonewalling of the FED and U.S. Treasury, but neither the FED or U.S. Department of the Treasury wanted additional evidence presented so, they filed a motion saying this new information was inadmissible because it should have been presented earlier. Judge Leinenweber ruled immediately in favor of the FED and U.S. Treasury. No surprise. Stymied, Lorretta Laurel’s attorneys filed a “Notice Of Voluntary Dismissal” telling the federal court they wished to drop the case. The same day, attorneys for the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois also made a motion to dismiss. Because of the court’s slovenly record keeping, it was unclear which side made the move first. Attorney Portman immediately filed an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit Court where this apellate panel of three ( 3 ) federal judges was led by Judge Richard Posner who soon made it clear he knew little about the financial history of his country, had no idea what the true relationship was between the U.S. federal government and Federal Reserve, did not have the vaguest idea what the U.S. Department of the Treasury and Federal Reserve had done covertly in the 1930s, and thought he was being exceedingly witty by calling the entire lawsuit “nonsense.” 41 Judge Bob Posner is said closely associated with the Federalist Society, established in 1982 by a clique of extreme right-wing Christian Zionist grand inquisitors including Robert Bork, William Rehnquist, Edwin Meese, William Kristol, and John Ashcroft. The organization was underwritten by the Mellon Family involved in setting up the U.S. Federal Reserve in 1913. Judge For Yourself In July 2002, federal judge Bob Posner gave his opinion on the Lorretta Laurel case, as follows: “The suit is preposterous. There is no record of any such bond issue, and as the national debt of the United States was only $28,000,000,000 (USD) billion in 1934, as a year later the entire stock of gold owned by the United States had a value of only $9,000,000,000 (USD) billion, and as no securities issue by a U.S. Government entity exceeded $100,000,000 (USD) million before 1940, the claim that in 1934 a Federal Reserve bank issued bonds that virtually doubled the national debt and added $25,000,000,000 (USD) billion in gold to the government’s holdings can only cause one to laugh.” Whoever gave Judge Robert Posner this disinformation, the laugh is on him. Economist Dr. Martin A. Larson, an expert in this field, gave totally different facts: “Between 1934 and 1941, 18,000 metric tons of gold were purchased by the Federal Reserve System and placed in the vaults of Fort Knox. It was owned by the Federal Reserve, and the government was simply the custodian thereof, and American taxpayers paid the storage fee.”42 Judge Robert Posner claimed to be stating self-evident facts, but he did not know the facts. If 18,000 metric tons of gold were purchased by the Federal Reserve during the 1930s, the 1,665 metric tons purchased from Jose Laurel was merely a drop in the bucket. Robert Posner saying that such a gold purchase would have “virtually doubled the National debt” is nonsensical because the 1,665 metric tons purchased from Jose Laurel purchased by the private bank cartel under the U.S. Federal Reserve had no bearing on the U.S. Department of the Treasury bureau of Public Debt. Had Judge Posner done due diligence, he would have known that in 1952, U.S. Congressman Wright Patman of the House Banking and Currency Committee said, as follows: “These funds are expended by the Federal Reserve System without an adequate accounting to the U.S. Congress. In fact, there has never been an independent audit of either the twelve ( 12 ) [ FED ] banks or the Federal Reserve Board that has been filed with the Congress, where a member of Congress would have an opportunity to inspect it. The General Accounting Office ( GAO ) does not have jurisdiction over the Federal Reserve. For 40-years the system, while freely using the money of the government, has not made a proper accounting.”43 Federal Court of Appeals judge Robert Posner should have known, that in 1982 the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ( San Francisco, Califo LikeLike
