Global bank investigation sudden loss of witnesses for prosecutors

From Wayne Madsen Report February 24-25, 2014 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Global bank investigation results in sudden loss of witnesses for prosecutors A long ongoing transatlantic probe by prosecutors and investigators with the United Kingdom's Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the U.S. Department of Justice and Commodities Futures Trading Commission, European Union regulators, and the Financial Conduct Authority of the quasi-independent City of London has been hampered by the sudden deaths of several key witnesses, according to information conveyed to WMR by our sources on Wall Street. The investigation of major banks, including Barclays, JP Morgan, UBS, Citigroup, Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, Standard Chartered, HSBC, and Rabobank for manipulating the London interbank offered rate, or LIBOR, in order to maximize profits, has resulted in charges recently being brought against three Barclays executives, a derivatives trader with UBS and Citigroup, and two traders with the brokerage firm RP Martin by the SFO in London. However, WMR has been told that additional charges against more senior banking executives have been stymied by the sudden deaths of named or prospective witnesses on both sides of the Atlantic. Banks are alleged to have falsely reported the benchmark LIBOR rates used to lend money to one another in order to boost bonuses for bank executives. The collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008 and its ripple effect on the global economy has … [Read more...]

Allen Dulles rejected anti-Zionist group’s requests

Unknown-4

February 19-20, 2014 -- Allen Dulles rejected anti-Zionist group's requests From Wayne Madsen Report  A series of documents uncovered from declassified CIA archives reveal that CIA director Allen Dulles rejected speaking before or issuing a statement to an anti-Zionist group called the American Council for Judaism. Although Dulles maintained close links between the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Gestapo during World War II, he helped expose "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" as a forgery to The Times of London and New York Times while serving at the U.S. embassy in Istanbul in 1921. Dulles also saw the establishment of a Zionist state in the Middle East as a natural outgrowth of the Balfour Declaration and the post-World War I Treaty of Versailles. During his time in Istanbul, Dulles became a close acquaintance of Chaim Weizmann, the father of modern Zionism. When it came to issuing a statement for the American Council on Judaism conference in Houston in March 1958, Dulles made his position on the group's goals clear. In a latter to the group's executive director Leonard Sussman, Dulles's executive officer at the CIA wrote, "In view of the nature of Mr. Dulles' position in the intelligence community, he regrets that he is not able to furnish you with a statement." In a February 4, 1958 briefing memo, Stanley J. Grogan, Dulles's assistant, wrote "This is a very delicate matter which involves a religious faith and a political movement, both … [Read more...]

Loskarn Arrest only a Tip of a Pedophile Network by WMR

From Wayne Madsen Report February 10-13, 2014 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Washington, DC (WMR) Loskarn arrest only a tip of a pedophile network that includes Alexander, other Tennessee politicians The December 11, 2013 arrest by U.S. Postal Inspectors of Senator Lamar Alexander's chief of staff Ryan Loskarn on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography in connection with international law enforcement's Toronto-based Project SPADE, represents only the tip of an iceberg which connects Alexander to a network of Tennessee politicians and businessmen associated with child sex abuse. Loskarn, who was released against the wishes of federal prosecutor for the District of Columbia Mi Yung Park to the custody of his parents in Sykesville, Maryland for being a suspected suicide risk, was found hanging in the basement of his parents' home on January 23. Foregoing an autopsy, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Maryland in Baltimore concluded, based on a mere visual inspection of Loskarn's body, that he had died from  self-inflicted hanging. Since Loskarn's indictment had previously been postponed until February 10, the last day which prosecutors had to bring formal charges, WMR was informed by legal experts that the delay in indicting Loskarn may have been the result of a pending plea agreement. Loskarn, who was identified as a child porn distributor, would have been in a position to identify actual or intended recipients of child pornographic … [Read more...]

Connection between Pedofiles and Ukraine Fake Protestor

February 8-10, 2014 -- SPECIAL REPORT. The suicide of Ryan Loskarn: A Likely Story From Wayne Madsen Report Befitting the small town of Sykesville, Maryland is the fact that its small bookstore on Main Street is called "A Likely Story Bookstore." That is because the official report on the January 23 suicide by self-hanging of Jesse Ryan Loskarn, the 35-year old former chief of staff to Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander, is indeed a "likely story." A special investigation by WMR has discovered that Loskarn's body was not subjected to an autopsy to make certain his cause of death. On February 7, Bruce Goldfarb, a spokesman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) for the State of Maryland in Baltimore, told WMR initially that the autopsy report on Jesse Ryan Loskarn had not yet been completed. But when Goldfarb returned our call 45 minutes later, he said there was no autopsy report on Loskarn. When Loskarn’s body was taken to the OCME morgue on January 23, an OCME inspection determined that the cause of death for the decedent was by hanging and that no full autopsy to determine the cause of death was necessary. The disposal of the body, whether through burial or cremation, is private information, according to Goldfarb. A visit by WMR staff and volunteers to the Haight Funeral Home in Sykesville, which handled the funeral of Loskarn, in Sykesville identified a crematorium in the rear of the building. An employee of the funeral home earlier … [Read more...]

Kevin Annett rebuked the United Nations for its “toothless” statement on Vatican crimes against children, and announced the launch of a new international court case against institutionalized child trafficking. Annett said, “If the United Nations had have been serious about combatting the organized rape and trafficking of children that is allowed and encouraged by catholic canon law, it would have treated the Vatican as the criminal organization that it is, by revoking the diplomatic status of the Vatican at the United Nations and barring its representation on U.N. Committees. “It would have encouraged all nations to nullify their tax exemptions to the catholic church and revoked the financial concordats that unlawfully funnel billions of dollars of tax payers' money to the Vatican Bank. And it would have declared the Vatican incorporated to be a transnational criminal organization under the … [Read more...]

Pedophiles are the new harangued and misunderstood “special rights” group

February 4-5, 2014 -- Pedophiles are the new harangued and misunderstood "special rights" group by Wayne Madsen Some news stories have the effect to drawing out from the dark recesses of society the most vile and slimy members of humanity. Witness those who have jumped to the defense of trademark neurotic comedian and movie director Woody Allen after his step-daughter, Dylan Farrow, accused him of molesting her when she was 7 years old. Dylan recently wrote an open letter in which she revealed Allen's molestation of her while married to her mother, actress Mia Farrow. Allen eventually married Mia Farrow's adopted daughter Soon Yi Previn, who was the subject of Allen's naked photo shoots before she was 18. At the time of their marriage, Allen was 56 and Previn was 20. Farrow charged that Allen had molested 7-year old Dylan in an attic in their Connecticut home. A prosecutor concluded that Allen likely did molest Dylan but declined to bring criminal charges. Allen has dodged many sexual molestation bullets over his career. Allen is protected by a Hollywood culture that stands ready to accept pedophilia as a legitimate alternate life style. Dylan, now 28, married, and living in Florida, has condemned performing artists who have worked with and praised Allen. These include Cate Blanchett, Diane Keaton, and Scarlett Johansson. Dylan rightly asks these actors if they would be so praiseworthy of Allen had it been their children who had been molested by lauded director of … [Read more...]

  Saturday February 8, 2014 at 7:00pm & Sunday February 9 at 2:00pm Kahilu Theatre in Waimea, Hawaii Big Island Click here for Tickets  Vagina Monologues   Article by KAREN ROSE  North Hawaii News PHOTO BY ANNA PACHECO (SPECIAL TO NHN) Despite its unique and provocative title, The Vagina Monologues” is much more than a highly acclaimed stage production. It’s also a social movement and a testament to the violence experienced by women and girls globally. “The Vagina Monologues,” directed by Jane Sibbett with a guest appearance by Roseanne Barr and 22 women actors, will run Feb. 8 and 9 at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea. “Our cast is comprised of women who not only have talent, but also have the heart to be in this,” said Sibbett. “We also have two 16-year-olds who are participating, and who are on fire for helping. It’s nice to have some young women be a part of this.” Eve Ensler, an author, playwright, professor and activist, wrote the “The Vagina Monologues” book in 1994 after conducting more than 200 interviews with a vast array of women – from urban New York City to remote African villages. The book was so powerful that Ensler adapted it for the stage, where it debuted off-Broadway in 1999 at the Westside Theatre. Since then, it has been translated into 48 languages and performed in more than 140 countries. Yet, despite these worldwide advances, saying the word “vagina” still makes many people uncomfortable 15 years later. Performed … [Read more...]
