2009: The $134.5/$145.5 billion dollar bond seizures and the $1 trillion dollar Keenan federal lawsuit
$134.5 billion dollars in U.S. bonds seized on the Italian/Swiss border in 2009
During the years leading up to the Second Sino-Japanese War, General Chiang Kai-shek, leader of the Nationalist movement in China (also known as the Kuomintang), foresaw that a conflict with Japan was inevitable. Kai-shek realized that war with Japan would lead to the plundering of vast amounts of treasure from throughout Asia. Beginning in 1928 and again in 1934, and at the behest of President Roosevelt, U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry S. Morganthau began issuing Federal Reserve Notes (FRN) and Federal Reserve Bonds (FRB) in exchange for gold. To ensure that some of China’s gold and treasures were kept safe, Kai-shek handed over great amounts of these to the United States. But it wasn’t just Kai-shek that accepted these bonds. Powerful families from throughout China, who wielded great political and military influence, also held vast sums of gold and treasure (more on these families in a moment). These powerful families pooled their resources and handed the gold to the United States. These assets were documented into accounts through the UBS (Union Bank of Switzerland) and put on deposit with the Federal Reserve Bank through the Bank for International Settlements. Many, many thousands of tonnes of metric gold and silver were handed over to the United States for safe keeping, with the promise that the Reserve Notes and Reserve Bonds would, in approximately thirty years time, be redeemable. Because of the highly sensitive nature of these bonds, (they were essentially as good as gold), and because at the time war with China was imminent, many of these bonds were hidden away throughout the Philippines (as well as other places throughout Southeast Asia) in much the same way that the gold bullion captured during Operation Golden Lily had been.
It bears noting that the dollar amounts on the bond certificates were astronomical. Individual bond notes with values of $500 million dollars were common, and 1934 bonds were labeled in the denomination of $1 billion dollars.
The families in question are in fact the Asian version of the secret societies here in the West, and go by names such as Cherry Blossom, Maple Leaf, White Dragon, Black Dragon, and so on. Whereas many of the secret societies in the Western world, such as the British Aristocracy/Committee of 300 and the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, etc., are based upon aristocratic/bloodline rule (the British monarchy itself has a very carefully controlled bloodline dating back to before the time of Queen Elizabeth I), the societies of the East are based upon meritocracy, or rank by merit and accomplishment. The societies of the East oppose a bloodline type of system.
One of the main reasons why the bonds were not redeemed in the mid-1960’s was because of the presence of Ferdinand Marcos, who was on a personal crusade to try and uncover both the hidden treasures as well as the bonds from throughout the Philippines. Anyone at the time who wished to come forward to try and cash these bonds, i.e. the Chinese families and the descendants of the Kuomintang, would first need to retrieve them from their hiding places in the Philippines. With Marcos in power, this became a very dangerous proposition. As Peggy and Sterling Seagrave tell us in their bookGold Warriors,
It was not until 1986, with the removal of Marcos from power, that these bonds began to be recovered by their rightful owners.
In the very late 1990’s a prominent Spanish-based attorney named Santiago Vila Marques approached the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois with a claim to settle the bonds on behalf of the descendants of Jose Laurel, who had been a superior court judge in Manila, Philippines, and who had allied himself with several Chinese families as part of the bond issuances back in the 1930’s. Marques enlisted attorney Carey Portman (Chicago, Illinois) and attorney Laurence J. Friedman (Texas friend of George W. Bush) to represent the claimants if the case came to trial in the U.S. According to Sterling and Peggy Seagrave in their book Gold Warriors,
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.’
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.”
In September 2001, the Jose Laurel Family case came to trial at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Chicago, Illinois. After a great deal of additional stonewalling and, undoubtedly, manipulation, and after having the case presented before two different judges, it was dismissed by both parties, as Marques was quickly beginning to realize that the entire case was being manipulated.
Soon thereafter, a few curious things happened: Four boxes of the bonds were mysteriously seized by secret service forces. Marques, having inside connections to a variety of different intelligence sources, tracked the boxes to a security firm in Berlin. He traveled to the city and pressed for the return of the boxes. While in Berlin, his hotel room was ransacked and much of his paperwork stolen from him. The boxes have to this day not yet been returned, and the case has thus far not returned to court. After looking a bit deeper, however, we see that this particular case is only one of many in which individuals representing powerful interests have been stonewalled when attempting to cash in these bonds.
But the story gets even more complicated. In a bizarre twist, a military plane carrying some of these bonds crashed sometime in the 1930’s, and many billions of dollars of bonds went down with it. These bonds have since been recovered by locals, and have been spread throughout the market. Of course, intelligence agents the world over have been making a covert attempt to recover these, as a person walking into a bank and asking to cash a bond which has a face value of $500 million dollars would inevitably cause some suspicion. One of the only articles written about this in mainstream media was the following from Bloomberg.
Experts can’t seem to agree on the authenticity of these bonds. That comes as no surprise, as none of them has any knowledge of the true source of these bonds and why they were issued in the first place. According to the book Gold Warriors,
“…it is routine procedure to denounce gold certificates as counterfeit, even when they are real. This is a universally practiced form of confiscation.”
The bottom line behind all of this is as follows: The Allied governments issued these bonds back in the 1930’s and had no intention of ever paying them back. It was a sham, a fraud. Why, you ask? Because they had taken possession of 80% of the world’s gold and jewels, and foresaw that they could use this virtually limitless chest of funds to steer world policy into the future. By the time the bonds became mature, the Federal Reserve and the ruling oligarchs must have figured that they would by then be in control of world policy, and could brush aside this debt as if it never existed. But as we shall see, there have been powerful forces at work behind the scenes that have been in direct opposition to this plan, and they have very recently taken what is perhaps the first step in reestablishing order in the world.
In the summer of 2009, a very curious thing happened: $134.5 billion dollars in bonds were seized from two Japanese men, (named Yamaguchi and Watanabe), on the Italian border in Chiasso, Switzerland. Apparently, these men were working in tandem with international investors to work out investment strategies for the assets. However, on their way to meet with this group, the plans were abruptly canceled. The bonds were then seized by the Italian Financial Police after finding them in a ‘hidden’ part of the men’s suitcases while they were traveling on a train near the Swiss/Italian border. As usual, this story received very little media attention, when it should have been all over the news. The exception to this was one single reportby Glenn Beck on Fox News. This case was also reported in March of 2012 on an online television program entitled Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know.
Only a few mainstream press articles covered this story:
One of the more curious aspects of this case is that the Japanese men who were detained were released shortly afterwards. This begs the question: If $134.5 billion dollars in bonds were seized, why were the men holding these bonds released back out into the world? The answer lies in what ultimately happened to the bonds: They disappeared underground, and the story went away with them.
Then, in November of 2011, another interesting event occurred: A lawsuit was filed in a N.Y. federal court by Neil F. Keenan representing the Dragon Family. The complaint? That $145.5 billion dollars in bonds had been stolen from them as part of an elaborate scheme undertaken two years earlier by some people in very high positions of power both within, and affiliated with, the Office of International Treasury Control, which is a ‘shadow’ bank of sorts wholly under the auspices of the United Nations (their official website can be found HERE). The defendants?
Silvio Bersculoni (former Prime Minister of Italy)
Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary General of the U.N.
OITC (Office of International Treasury Control)
WEF (World Economic Forum)
Giancarlo Bruno (Head of the banking industry of the WEF)Also mentioned in the lawsuit are people connected with:
The Knights Templar
The Free Masons
The P2 Masonic Lodge
According to the lawsuit the Dragon Family, a conglomerate of powerful Asian families who were given these bonds back in the 1930’s as part of the ‘loaning’ of gold to the Allied powers to protect them from seizure by the Japanese during the ensuing war, entrusted these bonds to an agent named Neil Keenan in early 2009. According to the wording of the lawsuit,
“The Kuomintang appointed guardians of this gold and the securities issued by the United States who came to be known euphemistically as the Dragon Family. The Dragon Family is, in fact, a highly secretive and informal organization that operates between old families within China and Taiwan, above the political divide of the two independent Chinese governments.”
The total value of the bonds, with accumulated interest, was $1 trillion dollars. Keenan was instructed to use the assets gained from the bonds to invest in Private Placement Programs to benefit a wide range of global humanitarian purposes.
A few months later, in September of 2009, Keenan, again on behalf of the Dragon Family, met with a man by the name of Daniele Dal Bosco, who is recognized in the lawsuit as a “trustworthy Vatican banker” and an agent of the defendants. According to the wording of the lawsuit, Dal Bosco, having knowledge of where the bonds were being kept, was sent by the defendants to meet with Keenan and hold the bonds for ‘safe keeping’, with the eventual goal being that of the assets being placed into the PPP for humanitarian efforts. Under this premise, custodianship of the bonds was given to Dal Bosco. Dal Bosco would, however, turn out to be deceitful.
According to the lawsuit, “Dal Bosco sought assistance from various other sources and contacts, in order to act upon and perpetrate a fraud in connection with the sale or placement of the DFFI (bonds) in the global marketplace through stealth, conversion and bribery.” The lawsuit goes on to say that Dal Bosco tried to bribe Keenan to the tune of $100 million dollars to simply release the bonds to him and not make the Dragon Family aware of this. Keenan steadfastly refused. What in fact did happen at this point, according to the lawsuit, is that the bonds went underground and were delivered into the hands of some very powerful people. Through a complex network of investigation, the Dragon family tracked the bonds, and is now taking these folks to court to demand retribution. And if you are wondering about the discrepancy in the face value of the bonds vs. the amount of the lawsuit, remember this: The bonds were originally issued in 1934, with a face value of $145.5 billion dollars. But what with the value of gold having risen, and with accrued interest, that brings the grand total up to $1 trillion dollars.
One thing that bears noting is that the bonds themselves contain obvious flaws and misspellings, which has led to conjecture that the bonds are fake. However, according the lawsuit, and to the opinions given by certain experts on this matter (i.e. folks who work in the area of the verification of fraudulent monies), this was in fact done on purpose. The reason? To ensure that if the bonds were ever seized by individuals on the open market, they could be easily dismissible. According to the lawsuit, the bonds themselves contain numbers and markings which are kept in the files of the Federal Reserve, UBS, and The Bank for International Settlements that will verify beyond a shadow of a doubt that the bonds are real and must be honored.
The most interesting aspect of this case, and one that is purely speculative, is that the Dragon Family allowed these bonds to be seized and custodianship handed over as part of a complex scheme by which they would be able to eventually file such a lawsuit, and set into motion a much larger plan to expose the entire system.
The case can be verified as authentic simply by visiting Pacer, which is a government run, public access site for court cases in the U.S. You must register and will be sent a passport via the mail, which you can then use to log in and search for the case. It costs money to download it, so I have taken the liberty to upload it at the following LINK.
The case is being represented by William H. Mulligan Jr., with Bleakley, Platt & Schmidt of White Plains, N.Y. Their website is HERE. As you can plainly see, this case is authentic.
The next step in this case? A cease and desist order from the attorney that will be filed as part of the suit, which will ultimately serve to blow the lid off the case and open up everything: The ultimate source of the bonds, i.e. The Black Eagle Trust.
Most importantly of all, it is said that there is currently an alliance of well over 100 nations who are attempting to bring about an end to the financial tyranny that is currently enveloping the world. The end game? A complete cleanup of governments and financial institutions throughout the Western world, and mass arrests of these maniacs to hold them responsible for their crimes. This ‘call to action’ has been revved up in the early part of 2012 in direct response to the extremely dangerous tenants set forth in Barack Obama’s signing of the 2012 NDAA, National Defense Authorization Act, (signed into law on New Year’s Eve, when most of America wasn’t paying attention), which grants sweeping executive powers to the president to detain U.S. citizens on U.S. soil by military personnel without a right to due process in a court of law (contained in sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA). If martial law is enacted, this would go into full effect, and thus people’s human rights would be crushed and, according to the wording of the NDAA, anyone who resisted could be branded an ‘enemy combatant’. This would be in direct violation of the Posse Comitatus act, which prohibits the use of military force against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil. This is simply unacceptable, and now people are fighting back. The Keenan federal lawsuit provides a powerful, legal means of breaking this case wide open, and of revealing the truth behind the Black Eagle Trust, bringing The Committee of 300 and all of its lackeys down to their knees once and for all, and putting power back into the hands of the people.
***As a final note: According to the wording of the lawsuit, The $134.5 billion dollar bond seizure in Chiasso, Switzerland and the theft of Keenan’s assets totaling $145.5 billion dollars, both of which occurred in 2009, represent two separate and distinct events. However, in both cases, the financial instruments seized belong to the Dragon Family.
One individual who is given mention in the Keenan federal lawsuit is a man named Benjamin Fulford. Fulford is a known entity, as he is the former Asian bureau chief for Forbes magazine (having cross-checked this information, this writer came across the following financial article in Forbes dated 2005 and written by Fulford). Over the course of the past several years Fulford, who speaks fluent Japanese, has released a series of videos over the Internet claiming that he is acting as a spokesperson for a group called The White Dragon Society, which apparently is one of the major ruling families in Asia. Some of his videos feature him in conversation, live on Japanese television, with an older Japanese gentleman. This man is Chodoin Daikaku, the President of the United World Karate Association, an international association of karate schools that purportedly includes 50 million members. Daikaku was a close personal friend of Michael Jackson. Jackson and Daikaku apparently would meet on occasion to discuss a new vision of peace for the world. Here is a link to an article in The Japan Times. The fact that both Fulford and Daikaku are such known entities may lend credibility to what you are about to read.
An interview between Fulford and best-selling author and lecturer/author David Wilcock regarding information that you will read in the coming paragraphs can be found HERE. One of the very first live video interviews conducted by Fulford was released in late 2007 featuring Fulford interviewing David Rockefeller in Japan. During the course of this interview, Mr. Rockefeller appears to become visibly unsettled when confronted with pointed questions regarding the secret, parallel power structures currently controlling the U.S. government. That interview can be seen HERE.
In August of 2011, Fulford and a few other sources claimed that there was a secret meeting of finance ministers and representatives from 57 different nations held on a navy vessel off the coast of the Principality of Monaco, a sovereign city-state located in southeastern France, close to the Italian border. This meeting is being referred to as the Monaco 57 or the Monaco Colloquium. Apparently, some folks from the old cabal, (specifically mentioned is Jay Rockefeller), tried to force their way into the meeting but were denied access.
The outcome of the meeting, being referred to as The Monaco Accords, lays out a plan for a new global financial system backed by the gold stolen as part of Operation Golden Lily and then again by the Allied forces after World War II. The premise of this lies in the Black Eagle Trust: Trillions of dollars of gold and jewels many, many times over that have thus far been hoarded by a select few people. Apparently, well over 100 different nations have now joined together to create a new global agenda. Also possibly involved in this is a group that is calling themselves The White Hats, who are apparently a group of Pentagon insiders who are in the process of bringing criminal charges against those in the highest positions of power.
What can be assumed from all of this is that there is a major splintering amongst the powers that be. Powerful Asian families realize that they have been duped by the bond scam, and demand retribution. There also appear to be a number of people here in the West who have had quite enough of the fraud and manipulation caused by the ‘fake’ fiat system perpetrated by the Federal Reserve and the other banking systems of the Western world with the backing of the Black Eagle Trust. If what we are reading is correct, then a number of people in power inside the Pentagon are set to make mass arrests of high ranking officials to hold them responsible for their crimes. Click HERE to watch a news report dated June 2012 on RT TV in which a representative from the Executive Intelligence Review Magazine tells us about “Decade of War: Enduring Lessons from the Past Decade of Operations”, a draft report released by the Pentagon on May 23rd, 2012 in which it is stated that the U.S. government has failed in its usage of the U.S. military as a tool for foreign intervention. This report comes directly from the Joint Chiefs of Staff. According to General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs,
“We’re transitioning from a decade of war. A complex and uncertain security environment looms. And as we look toward the future, each service and our total joint force face fundamental questions about their identities, their roles and their capabilities.”
A review of this report can be read by clicking HERE. The report in its entirety can be downloaded by clicking HERE. This corroborates much of the information that Lyndon LaRouche has been reporting throughout most of 2012, including the following report, dated August 3rd, 2012 and viewableHERE, in which he states,
“The U.S. active and retired military, led by Joint Chiefs chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, along with active and retired Israeli military and intelligence and others among the traditional leadership there, are in all-out mobilization to stop British stooge Bibi Netanyahu and his mixed-up Defense Minister Ehud Barak from launching an Israeli attack on Iran over the coming twelve weeks, precipitating a thermonuclear war which could lead to the extinction of the human race. While the more-public side of this is being widely-publicized, especially by those who want to prevent a war, the unpublicized private side involves constant, long international telephone calls and secret visits, especially by active and retired military in both countries.”
What can be ascertained from all of this is that it appears as though the U.S. military is fed up with being seen as ‘the bad guys’, and is pushing back against the de facto government of the United States and its ‘handlers’ both at home and abroad. Far too many U.S. soldiers are returning home from war and asking themselves, “Just what is it exactly that I truly fought for?” The view held by many nations throughout the world in regards to the U.S. military is that it is being used as a weapon to impose imperialism throughout the world. If what Dempsey is saying is sincere, then the military wishes to change that view, and is refusing to take part in any further foreign military intervention.
In the wake of all this, there is a possible link to the 9/11 tragedy: Reports have surfaced that mass amounts of gold disappeared from the vaults in the basements of the World Trade Center towers.
In the months following the attacks, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani stated that $230 million dollars in gold had been recovered from the vaults beneath the Trade Center towers. However, according to an article in the Times Online (transcript here) the actual amount of gold stored in the vaults before the attacks was just under $1 billion dollars. If this is true, then there are many 100’s of millions of dollars of gold that need to be accounted for. Two other reports, one from City Beat and another from The New York Times confirm two separate things: 1. In the clean-up effort, security officials came across the locked door of a vault that had large scorch marks on it, and stated that these marks looked very much like the work of someone trying to get into the vault and 2. Construction workers were told to leave the scene as the recovered gold bullion were being carried away by heavily armed guards. One worker stated,
All of this may create a new theory, one that Benjamin Fulford has been proposing: The holders of the bonds that were being stonewalled by the Federal Reserve and other bank holders were requesting a return of their gold. Some of this may have been stored beneath the Trade Center towers. If gold did in fact disappear, (and contrasting figures seem to indicate that the gold recovered does not match the total gold stored in the vaults pre-911), then it may mean that the attacks were used as a way to secretly move massive amounts of gold to undisclosed locations to keep it hidden.
