Illinois Governor Tries To Sell Barack Obamas Senate Seat
18 Dec 2008
...Although the eastern European mafia is referred to by many in the media and law enforcment as the Russian Mafia, it is important to note that in the book RED MAFIYA: HOW THE RUSSIAN MOB HAS INVADED AMERICA, author Robert Friedland describes the close connections between the so-called Russian Mafia and israel. Friedland quotes Jonathan Winer, a former assistant secreatary of state for International Law Enforcment, who revealed "There is not a major Russian organized crime figure who we are tracking who does not carry an israeli passport....according to Winer, a former aid to Senator John kerrys investigations of BCCI and international drug smuggling, all 75 top Russian and Ukrainian Mafia figures carry israeli passports...

While links betwen Saudi Arabian businesses and charities and Al Quaeda have been highlighted by law enforcemnt and the media (During the bush administration), vry little attention has been paid to the long term association of terrorist groups like Al Quaeda with the Russian-israeli Mafia. A 23 year veteran of the CIA's conter terrorism division told me in July 2004 that one of the most overlooked aspects of the 9-11 attacks was the role of Ruian Israeli organized crime in facilitating the attack...

Russian policeman Kiril Kagner points out that some, but not all, Russian mobsters are jewish. He says many Russian mobsters claim jewish roots in order to obtain israeli passports...he estimates that the Russian-israeli mafia has pumped some 4 billion dollars into the israeli econmy. According to Britains Independent, some of this money is kept in religious banks in Israel, which are tax exempt. Making matters worse is the fact that there is no law against money laundering in israel.


There is a very long history of israeli weapons smuggling in Latin America, particularly to drug cartels. On April 7, 1988, ABC World News Tonight reported that from 1983-1986, Israeli agents bought weapons from the communist bloc using American moneyand on behalf of the United States. the wepons were dlivered by a joint US-Israeli airlift to panama. Michael Harari, a former israeli mossad agent and assassin who was security advisor to Manuel Noriega, arranged to ship the weapons to Nicaraguan bases in Costa Rica and El Salvador. The last part of the deal was to fly cocaine from Columbian Medellin cartel sources to the United States...As Richard Threlkeld reported:

After dropping off their weapons, the planes and contract pilots of this makeshift israeli-American airlift went back to business as usual, smuggling illegal Columbian cocaine across the US border. If US officials who had sponsored this airlift knew it was drug dealing, they did nothing to stop these cargo planes.

A convicted money launderer named Ramon Milan-Rodriguez testified about the CIA-Vice President Bush-Noriega drug and weapons smuggling operation before senate hearings on drug smuggling and terrorism in cnetral America. Milan-Rodriguez testified that he set up a meeting between Jeb Bush and a Guatemalan presidential candidate named Alfonso Cabrera, who was backed by the Medellin cartel. Soon after, Cabrera visited washington and met with then President George HW Bush.

...An interesting link between the Russian-Israeli mafia and the Donald Rumsfelds and Douglas Feiths Office Of Special Plans was revealed in early august 2003, when F. Micahel Maloof was stripped of his security clearance for links with lebanese businessmen thought to have ties with israeli Mafia gun runners in Guatemala....At the time, bush administration official told Newsday: Its unclear whether maloofs involvment with the israeli gun runners was offical rogue duties, or unofficial rogue duties...

From The Book:
Chapter 5, Diamonds Are A Terrorists Best Friend

How does one get Top Secret US security clearances while holding a
foreign passport?

Isn’t there an OBVIOUS conflict of interest?

One could argue these men were great patriots -- but for which country?

If you're planning criminal acts, there is one major benefit of carrying
an Israeli passport -- if you can make it to Israel before you're
arrested, Israel will not extradite its own citizens.

The End of Retirement?
16 Dec 2008
Unless things change fast, human history will show that the phenomenon of “retirement” was limited to one generation. After World War II, when European and Japanese economies stood in tatters, American capitalism could fulfill “the American dream,” since there was little foreign competition to speak of. For the first time ever, workers were promised that — after working thirty or so years — they would be able to securely retire. That was largely the case…for one generation.
