Amazing events behind the scenes
Collapse of Citibank, US Stock Market, White House
Criminal collapse of Citibank and Morgan Stanley imminent
Page update: 02.12.07
A stolen sum totalling $4.5 trillion (four and a half trillion American dollars) was held illegally in a suspense account at Citibank’s offices at 399 Park Avenue, New York, USA, at the end of October 2007 and the beginning of November 2007. The money returned to Citibank on the 16th November 2007, having been temporarily concealed at Morgan Stanley.
The USA Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, was centrally involved in the administration of this theft. It is said that Paulson cannot now travel to Europe without being arrested, and that at the beginning of December 2007, a writ for his arrest had finally been issued in the USA itself (more details below). On Tuesday 20th October 2007, the Chinese authorities had pressed Paulson to instruct release of the $4.5 trillion.
The money originally came from The People's Bank of China in May 2006, at the time when Henry Paulson took over as USA Treasury Secretary in Washington. It was a private transfer of funds from China to an American financier called Lee Wanta of AmeriTrust Groupe. Henry Paulson stole this $4.5 trillion in June 2006.
Also on Tuesday 30th October 2007, the Provost Marshal for the USA (Brigadier General Rodney Johnson), visited Citibank. Everything was set ready for payment of the $4.5 trillion to be made into the AmeriTrust Groupe securities account at Morgan Stanley at the latest by 6.00pm on Wednesday 31st October. This payment was not made.
Citibank and Morgan Stanley are mired in a criminal conspiracy with the USA Treasury and the USA White House which will result in the arrest, in the USA, of William R. Rhodes (Chairman of Citigroup), John Mack (Chairman of Morgan Stanley) and Henry Paulson (USA Treasury Secretary).
Now that this matter is in the public domain, it is possible that the affair will bring down not just Citibank, Morgan Stanley and their auditors, but also the American Stock Market and the White House.
The $4.5 trillion has become tangled up with banking release procedures to do with the much larger NESARA global prosperity programme shortly to be announced. The $4.5 trillion is referred to in G8 Nation memos as 'The Wanta Plan' funds.
On Sunday 4th November 2007, after an emergency board meeting, the chairman and chief executive of Citibank, Charles Prince, resigned. He was replaced as chairman by former USA Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, and as chief executive by Sir Win Bischoff. The reason given was the recent losses in Citibank's mortgage-backed securities business.
Now relieved of his duties, Charles Prince is a dangerous man. He knows about Citibank's active involvement in the papertrail which used the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds to lubricate off-limits stealth trades. And he knows about the covert Citibank accounting strategies which kept knowledge of the Wanta Plan funds theft from several major shareholders.
On Tuesday 6th November 2007, it was reported that the entire Citibank Board of Directors had been arrested by the USA Provost Marshall. This report was premature. All members of the Citibank Board of Directors will be arrested by the Provost Marshall soon, but this has not yet taken place.
What did happen was that three thousand American banksters, corporate lawyers, accountants and others were taken into custody. It was said at the time that the others included Bill and Hillary Clinton, but not their clones. (More information about the use of human clones in American political management can be found here, here, here, here, here and here.)
Nine aircraft were filled with handcuffed prisoners. Six of these planes were made available to the USA Provost Marshall at Dulles International Airport (Washington DC). Another aircraft came from the UK and another from Germany. The provenance of the ninth aircraft used is not yet clear.
The prisoners had their passports and mobile telephones confiscated, and after being moved to a military holding area were flown out of the USA to face the due process of international law in Europe and elsewhere. London and Frankfurt were two of the destinations. The miscreants involved are now beyond the reach of Presidential Pardons. The spouses and family members of many of those who have ‘disappeared’ have been turning up at police departments asking for information about their loved ones. The police are reported to be informing such people that the banker or lawyer concerned has been arrested for serious offences but that he’s in good health. The prisoners are now under systematic interrogation in multiple locations. Some of them are talking volubly about instructions received from line-managers above them who have yet to be arrested.
The whole operation is being funded and authorised by the World Court. This is The International Court of Justice based in The Hague (Netherlands). European involvement in what, at surface level, appears to be an American banking problem seems curious. But the Citibank scandal is about international financial fraud. And the USA's historical connections with The British Crown are still legally potent. The British Crown includes the Queen of England, but is much bigger than her. It is a covert financial cartel which embraces the British and European aristocracy, Rothschild bankers and pan-global Jewish finance. Based in the City of London and in the upper echelons of the United Grand Lodge of England (the mother lodge of world freemasonry), The British Crown is sometimes referred to as "The Club of the Isles" or as "The Crown Temple". The foundation documents of international law indicate that the USA is owned by The Crown Temple in London. All American attorneys and judges work for The Crown Temple, whether or not they aware of this technicality. From a modern American point of view, therefore, all USA attorneys and judges are foreign agents and cannot lawfully stand for public office at any level of government. But they do. This is a dog's breakfast of such legal complexity that it makes the Schleswig-Holstein Question look quaint.
A team of British specialist bankers from the UK Citibank HQ in London has flown into New York to take charge of due process at Citibank USA. This will include expediting the release of the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds.
On Monday 5th November 2007, an attempt was made by President George W. Bush to intercept the delivery of papers to the Provost Marshall. The agents sent by the White House were arrested at gunpoint.
Also on Monday 5th November 2007, the USA Provost Marshall, by Court Order, nullified the electronic codes used by the USA Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, and took over direct control of the United States Treasury himself.
A senior USA Treasury official, quoted by the Hal Turner Show, said: "This is a financial disaster caused by wilful criminal acts, perpetrated by the highest officials in the U.S. federal government during the course of several Presidencies. This ongoing criminal conspiracy is so terrible, so enormous, so far-reaching, the country may never be able to financially recover. It appears that officials in the Administrations of Bush I, Clinton I & II and Bush II, along with thousands of their closest banker buddies, have stolen upwards of $27 trillion (twenty seven trillion USA dollars) since 1988." Another source states that this $27 trillion was, in fact, stolen during an eight day period up to and including Wednesday 7th November 2007.
In related events in São Paulo, Brazil, on Tuesday 6th November 2007, Brazilian police arrested twenty people, including an employee of UBS, on suspicion of crimes including money laundering, tax evasion and illegal transfer of money overseas. Those arrested included three bank employees - two foreign and one Brazilian - six or seven black market currency traders, and several wealthy private Brazilian citizens. The group had been illegally transferring money overseas at a rate of $4m (four million USA dollars) a month for at least the past six months. The police operation involved 280 federal agents and 44 search warrants.
On Thursday 8th November 2007, the USA State Department said that Lee Wanta was collected in a car at 3.25pm, driven to Morgan Stanley and took economic receipt of his $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds. This did not happen. There was no car. Lee Wanta stayed in his hotel room all day. Morgan Stanley blocked every call from Lee Wanta, diverted him to voicemail and failed to respond. Lee Wanta is a major private client of Morgan Stanley. His Morgan Stanley account manager returned no calls.
At that time, the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds were still held at Citibank. Citibank had agreed to pay Lee Wanta $352 billion (three hundred and fifty two billion USA dollars) in interest payments on the $4.5 trillion principal tranche. It is not clear how many of Citibank's major shareholders are aware of this.
On Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th November, George Bush Snr attempted to interfere with the $4.5 trillion payout. His collaborators both in the USA and abroad have now been arrested. These included six bankers in Germany, one in Switzerland, and three USA Treasury personnel or agents.
It is now thought unlikely that the USA Provost Marshall will be able to safely instruct release of the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds until both George Bush Jnr and George Bush Snr have been arrested.
Early on Saturday 10th November 2007, the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds were transferred from Citigroup to Morgan Stanley. The money was paid into a fictitious account with a name very similar to AmeriTrust Groupe Inc, but subtly different. In this account they could not be accessed by Lee Wanta. Shortly afterwards, Christopher Story, the investigative financial journalist working with Lee Wanta, reported that the $4.5 trillion were transferred out of Morgan Stanley to an undisclosed account elsewhere, thought to be at Bank of America.
It is very possible that the only way, now, that the USA Provost Marshall will be able to effect the final purging of the Augean stables in the USA will be to impose Martial Law for a short period of time in order to round-up the malefactors. It is the USA Provost Marshall who is Commander-in Chief, not the President.
Residing in hotels and diplomatic residences in New York at present are 160 high-status delegates from foreign countries who are waiting to take economic delivery of funds for their own countries which will be released as soon as Lee Wanta receives his $4.5 trillion. They came to New York to receive these monies on Monday 5th November 2007. The fact that they have been kept waiting by American banking fraud has turned the issue into an international crisis. This, rather than Iran, was the main focus of the talks which the German Chancellor Angela Merkel held with George Bush Jnr and George Bush Snr on Saturday 10th November 2007 in Crawford, Texas.
Christopher Story's view is that the USA Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, has been trying to blackmail the USA Provost Marshall. In the period Monday 5th November 2007 to Saturday 10th November 2007, Paulson repeatedly disobeyed orders from the Provost Marshall to cease his illegal financial transactions. In effect, the USA Treasury Secretary was saying to the Provost Marshall: "You can't touch me, and you know it. If you arrest me, the stock market and the dollar will collapse, there will be an uncontrollable global crisis, and you will be blamed for it. So go to hell."
George Bush Senior's concealed Latin American bank accounts have now been traced and frozen by the Provost Marshall.
On Sunday 18th November 2007, it was reported that the USA Provost Marshall was allowing himself to be manipulated by the White House conspirators and was only doing half his job. The key task - the release of the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds - would only take twenty seconds. The Provost Marshall was under pressure from his political controllers to stall on this core responsibility in order to buy time for the major conspirators to assemble a cover-up. The USA Army Chief of Staff was poised to file formal charges against The Provost Marshall, Brigadier General Rodney Johnson, because he was in contravention of his oath as a commissioned officer in this matter. Other members of the USA Joint Chiefs of Staff were actively discussing this issue and were ready to urge due process. While quick to arrest many of the middle-ranking conspirators in the banks and the law firms, The Provost Marshall appeared unwilling to confront the major conspirators in any effective manner. (Late note: The Provost Marshall has now been replaced - see below). A large number of extra USA Special Forces personnel were called up for an undisclosed mission related to these events. These Special Forces units will be operational by the end of November 2007. It is likely that they will be involved in making, or supporting, high-level arrests of prominent public figures.
A probable consequence of this Wantagate scandal will be to engulf the Bush II Government in a nexus of investigations into complicity in the 911 mass murders in New York on the 11th September 2001. The cover story here had to do with a couple of hijacked passenger planes getting crashed into the World Trade Centre by Jihadist patsies. This did happen, but the permitted terrorist attacks were smoke and mirrors; subsequent studies have shown that the collisions and their consequential infernos were insufficiently energetic to raze the buildings to the ground. Something else that had been strategically positioned inside the buildings in advance did that. The Bush White House is now being associated with possessing prior executive knowledge of this controlled demolition of the WTC. For more background information about 911, see here, here, here, here and here. Both main political parties in the USA (Republicans and Democrats) have senior figures involved in the 911 cover-ups.
On the morning of Tuesday 20th November 2007, Lee Wanta and Michael Cottrell, Executive Vice President and Treasurer of Lee Wanta's Commonwealth of Virginia-based AmeriTrust Groupe, turned up, as officially instructed, at Citibank's office at 399 Park Avenue, in Midtown Manhattan, to sign the relevant documents to finalise the transfer of the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds to Lee Wanta's corporate securities account with Morgan Stanley, New York. The two men visited the bank after the USA State Department, the USA Federal Reserve and the USA Treasury, had each separately advised, and had subsequently confirmed on Monday 19th November 2007, that the $4.5 trillion was on the books at Citibank.
Upon arrival at 399 Park Avenue on the 20th November 2007, Wanta and Cottrell asked to see William Rhodes, the Chairman of Citibank. They were told that he was away from the bank. They then asked to see William Ferguson and were told that he was not available. Richard Lava, the Securities Chief, and other Citibank officials, stated that Wanta and Cottrell had no business with Citibank.
Faced with this refusal by Citibank to implement the instructions of the USA State Department, the USA Federal Reserve and the USA Treasury, Wanta and Cottrell informed all three official parties, each of which expressed shock at the situation. Wanta and Cottrell then requested the USA Provost Marshal, Brigadier General Rodney Johnson, to come immediately to Citibank to enforce his official legal will and that of the USA State Department, the USA Federal Reserve and the USA Treasury. The USA Provost Marshal did not comply with this request and has now been replaced (see below).
The principal criminal conspirators at Citibank appear now to be William Rhodes, Robert Rubin, William Ferguson, and Richard Lava.
Shortly after the above events on the morning of Tuesday 20th November 2007, Lee Wanta, Michael Cottrell and three international diplomats holding diplomatic passports, were ordered off the Citibank premises by the owner of the building, Boston Properties. The Chief Executive Officer of Boston Properties is Edward Lynde. Armed New York Police Department personnel were summoned by Boston Properties in connection with this eviction. Boston Properties were acting on the instructions of Robert Rubin of Citibank.
It became apparent on Wednesday 21st November 2007 that there had been a major breach of established USA Constitutional practice. Several elements of the Executive Branch of the USA Federal Government were identified to have been dividing up the $1.575 trillion windfall tax payable by Lee Wanta, even though Citibank had blocked its disbursal to Wanta's securities account at Morgan Stanley. The USA Constitution provides for Congress to make appropriations, not the Executive Branch.
Citibank is now the object of a comprehensive Federal investigation. The USA Securities and Exchange Commission Code invoked is STILLPOINT. The investigation is involving more than ten responsible USA Federal agencies, including the Military. This scandal now has the potential to evolve into a full-blown American constitutional crisis which will result in the permanent closure of Citibank, Morgan Stanley and their auditors.
Christopher Story reports that de facto control of Citibank is now in the hands of British authorities representing Queen Elizabeth II of England. Major changes of personnel at the top of Citibank are underway. Four separate monitoring teams equipped with transaction-tracing packages using Inslaw/PROMIS enhanced software are now in place and active. Each of these software packages is capable of tracking financial provenances back for one hundred transactions. The software is at work twenty four hours a day investigating, tracking, tracing and logging the whereabouts of all Lee Wanta's converted, diverted, and stolen funds.
The senior Citibank official who has the authority to finalise the Wanta transfer of $4.5 trillion, and to expedite the agreed interest payment of $352 billion by means of a 60-day aval, is Catherine Weir. The Master Custodial Account involved here was originally set up by Brussels (Europe).
In the internal Citibank civil war which is now raging behind the scenes, the former USA Treasury Secretary, Robert Rubin (who serves the personal financial interests of the Clintons), is actively impeding and compromising the authority of Catherine Weir. Rubin was recently installed as the temporary Chairman of Citibank.
It is understood that on Tuesday 20th November 2007, at a round-table conference in Washington DC, Michael Chertoff, the USA Secretary of Homeland Security, may have been recorded on tape explicitly demanding that Citibank refuse to pay Lee Wanta the $4.5 trillion due to him.
Upstairs at Citibank on 20th November 2007, while Lee Wanta was being evicted downstairs, George Bush Snr was engaged in an operation to transfer the Wanta Plan $4.5 trillion to bank accounts in the Middle East (thought to be in Dubai or Saudi Arabia). He was working on this with Robert Rubin. Immediately afterwards, Rubin flew to the Middle East to take economic receipt of the funds. He failed. The Inslaw/PROMIS software (mentioned above) identified the attempted transaction and the transfer was blocked. The whereabouts of Robert Rubin are now unclear. If he is detected returning to the USA, or is detected attempting to enter Europe, he, like Henry Paulson, will be at risk of arrest.
There are three reports from credible sources that the USA Provost Marshal, Brigadier General Rodney Johnson, was dismissed and arrested (or placed under house arrest) at 5.00pm Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday 20th November 2007. The Provost Marshal was found to have been taking unlawful instructions from the USA Vice President, Dick Cheney. The Provost Marshal's Number Two has now taken over. The change was made by the USA Department of Defense (Internal Affairs) with International Court of Justice backing and authority. But military sources have declined to confirm Johnson's reduced status and some reports have indicated that he is still answering his office telephone. More information please.
New ATM machines have been installed all over the USA. This was done during October and November 2007. ATMs are Automated Teller Machines (hole-in-the-wall cash dispensers). The new ATMs have replaced the older machines to accommodate the new global banking system which is being rolled out as part of the NESARA world prosperity programmes. Bank of America will shortly become the new Treasury Bank of the United States and will replace the Federal Reserve Board. The offices and buildings of the Federal Reserve Board will become branches of The USA Treasury. Bank of America now has the clearance and the capacity to operate the high-security grey screen money-wiring system. A new American gold-backed currency, possibly called the Amero, will be introduced. The USA dollar will be abolished. In order to facilitate these changes smoothly, a substantial replacement of senior staff took place at Bank of America in the last two weeks of November 2007.
At 1.12pm on Friday 30th November 2007, President George W. Bush finally decreed that Lee Wanta was to be paid his $4.5 trillion immediately. The USA Treasury Secretary, Henry M. Paulson refused to comply with the President's direction. For some time Paulson had been proclaiming at meetings that he would never pay Lee Wanta. He had also been explicitly stating that: "President Bush cannot sack me."
At this point, Henry Paulson's position became operationally untenable within the USA Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The CIA changed sides in the dispute and demanded that Paulson procured the $4.5 trillion payment and released it for economic delivery to Lee Wanta. As USA Treasury Secretary, Paulson had sole signatory power in the matter. Henry Paulson refused to sign over the monies.
Between 3.00pm and 4.00pm Eastern Daylight Time on Friday 30th November 2007, a USA Federal Judge issued a writ for the immediate arrest of Henry Paulson. Several law enforcement and military special forces units scoured Washington DC and New York looking for Paulson who had gone into hiding. They found him at 4.15pm and the USA Treasury Secretary was served with the writ for his arrest. He stated to the law enforcement team who confronted him that he ".... didn’t realise that the President had authorised the Wanta payment’. He then told them that he would immediately order the release of the Wanta Plan funds from Citibank to Morgan Stanley by the Treasury Direct system. On the basis of this verbal undertaking, he was allowed to walk free.
By 10.00pm on Saturday 1st December 2007, no evidence was forthcoming that the $4.5 trillion payment had been made. Paulson's arrest warrant was re-activated, his whereabouts were unknown and he was being actively sought by law enforcement teams, DOD Internal Affairs operatives and CIA agents. Paulson, like Robert Rubin, was on the run. This time the legal instruction was that Paulson was to be arrested if he could not provide immediate concrete documentary proof that the Wanta payment has been made.
At 10.00am Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday 1st December 2007, the new Basle II international banking system was activated. Under this system no off-balance sheet financial operations are permitted. Every transaction must take place on-balance sheet. All banks, everywhere in the world, are required to adhere to this new rule, and others, if they are to continue trading. For technical accounting reasons related to Basle II, it is possible that American banks such as Citibank, Bank of America, Wachovia and JPMorganChase may be bankrupt within seven days if the $4.5 trillion Wanta Plan funds have not been released to Lee Wanta by that point.
Various USA prisons and other military holding facilities are being emptied of deportable Mexican residents and others. It is said that this is being done to make room for the expected new intake of long-term financial corruption prisoners who will be filling up American jails as a consequence of the Citibank Wanta Plan funds theft.
