Stalking the Octopus

Stalking the Octopus
by Stefene Russell

In 1991, when journalist Danny Casolaro was found floating in a blood-filled bathtub with a shoelace wrapped around his throat, the coroner ruled it a suicide. But people who knew Casolaro and knew why he was at the Sheraton Inn in Martinsburg, Va., where his body was found, never believed it was anything but murder.

Casolaro had traveled to Martinsburg to meet with one last source—the one, he said, who would help him cinch up the book he’d been working on for more than a year. He called itThe Octopus, the same term he used to describe the cabal of spies, spooks, crooks and politicians he’d uncovered in his research—a group whose ties he had traced to, among other things, Iran-Contra, the Bay of Pigs, the October Surprise and even Area 51. But whomever it was that Casolaro was to meet in Martinsburg on August 9 never showed up. And on August 10, when two housekeepers found Casolaro’s body in the tub, his fat accordion file of notes (which friends say he took with him everywhere) was conspicuously missing, along with his briefcase.

A few months after his brother’s death, Tony Casolaro collected what was left of Danny’s notes and clippings (the accordion file never resurfaced, and neither did the briefcase), turning them over to ABC News in hopes that the network would follow up on some of the leads his brother had uncovered. When ABC did nothing with the information, Tony took it to a friend at Investigative Reporters and Editors at the University of Missouri–Columbia’s journalism school. The files were placed in IRE’s archives. And that’s where conspiracy researcher Kenn Thomas stumbled on them in 1993.

As it turns out, Danny Casolaro was correct when he guessed that The Octopus would rescue him from obscurity—he just didn’t count on the subtitle of the book being Secret Government and the Death of Danny Casolaro. Penned by Thomas and his late writing partner Jim Keith in 1996, The Octopus is one of the most popular and accessible titles in the conspiracy genre; when the first edition went out of print, it became a collector’s item and was priced for as much as $100 on Thomas and Keith used the thin remains of Casolaro’s research as a starting point (the 2004 second edition even includes an appendix listing the contents of Casolaro’s news clippings file) but also pulled on “affidavits filed by arms merchants and convicted felons; mainstream and non-mainstream political sources, including some that publish messages received from channeled aliens, others notorious for their far-right connections, lite-left leanings and radical chic pose; unattributed sources on the Internet; anonymous samizdat; participants in Casolaro’s investigation; peripheral players; researchers who knew Casolaro; and researchers whose work expanded on the Octopus thesis.” Rather than apologizing for this motley—and not always academic—tangle of sources, the pair simply directed their readers to the copious footnotes, encouraging them to “track these sources and make their own judgments concerning credibility.”

Welcome to the world of conspiracy research, where Christian Libertarians who see the Illuminati’s nefarious influence in everything from world politics to the design of gum wrappers fraternize with ’60s hedonists who never abandoned their mission to fight The Man; add to the mix former military and intelligence personnel, professors, journalists, New Agers, geeks, hipsters, whistle-blowers, snake-oil salesmen, housewives, physicists and, of course, genuine paranoid wing nuts. In the conspiracy world, the red state–blue state rift never occurred. “We may all be nuts,” Thomas told The New York Times in 1995, “but we’re not all the same nuts.” Thomas claims the left wing–right wing division is itself part of the conspiracy—as he told The Riverfront Times that same year, “the real division is the top and the bottom.”

Thomas was born and raised in St. Louis and at first seems an unlikely conspiracy researcher. When he’s not in a suit, he’s at least in a dress shirt, with a neatly trimmed beard and a sort of ease that could not coexist with true raging paranoia. He reminds you of those cool sociology professors you had in college who looked buttoned up from the outside but taught units on the Yippies, included Jack Kerouac and H.L. Mencken on the reading list and screened 200 Motels in class. Thomas, who works as an archivist for the Western Historical Manuscripts Collection at the University of Missouri–St. Louis’ Thomas Jefferson Library, has been a key figure in the conspiracy underground for years; his magazine, Steamshovel Press, has deeply influenced the underground conspiracy movement and also surfaced in mainstream popular culture, from The New Yorker to The X-Files toBaseball Prospectus, which opined that Major League Baseball boasted “enough fishy behavior to keep Kenn Thomas swarming for years.” Thomas even wonders out loud if he and fellow conspiracy newsletter publishers Greg Bishop, editor of the now-defunct Excluded Middle, and Jim Martin of Flatland were perhaps the inspiration for The X-Files‘ Lone Gunmen; in fact, he saw smatterings ofSteamshovel in Mel Gibson’s Conspiracy Theory, too.

“Everything in there, everything this cab driver guy spots, is right out of Steamshovel Press,” Thomas says. “There are two anthologies, basically back issues of Steamshovel. Brian Helgeland, the screenwriter, bought both of those books [Popular Alienation and Popular Paranoia] from Jim Martin at Flatland Press.” Thomas says he’s also seen material from the Steamshovel website show up on TV: “There was a show called Dark Skies on the SciFi channel that mixed in real historical figures with this whole alien story. I did some research one week on Dorothy Kilgallen; the next week, Dorothy Kilgallen was a character on the show. So I write a column about Carl Sagan—in the ’60s Sagan presented a paper to all these rocket scientists on aliens—and the next week, Carl Sagan was a character on the show. So they’re cribbing off the website.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. “I’ve been told many times that I need to go to Hollywood and exploit this,” Thomas laughs. “The thing about living in St. Louis is, for $200 you can go to any city in this country, and L.A.-centered stuff, New York–centered stuff—that’s part of the conspiracy. It’s part of the homogenizing of the world. I don’t want to be part of that. I want a bigger picture. And you have to work harder to live in L.A. I think I’ve stumbled upon the perfect place.”

That perfect place is somewhere up in North County, where Thomas bought a really lovely house—”the Everly Brothers’ family owned it, it’s this 100-year-old Victorian Folk house, and it’s got a huge yard”—but doesn’t want to go into more detail than that. Years ago, he took out a P.O. box and prefers to keep his address on the down-low. Though the first few issues of Steamshovel didn’t attract a lot of attention (the inaugural issue was a stapled-and-photocopied affair, containing a Q&A with Ram Dass [formerly Richard Alpert, who had worked alongside Timothy Leary in Harvard’s LSD experiments] that’d been orphaned after a local newspaper reneged on its agreement to publish it), Thomas says he continued to publish in order to get free review books from publishers, and when he switched to conspiracy topics, he immediately regretted printing his home address on the back cover. Weird people started showing up on his doorstep.

“One of them was an old guy who was just driving across the country and living out of his car,” Thomas says, shaking his head. “The other guy’s actually become a friend of mine and takes me out to the gun range, tries to teach me to shoot. He used to shoot with Burroughs—he went to school in Lawrence. That was another weird little coincidence. It was easy for him to track me down, but this other guy was from Texas …”

Ah, that’s the other thing: co incidences. And Burroughs. Thomas studied literature at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics in Boulder, where he befriended Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs (he spoke at the ceremony when Burroughs’ star was added to the Loop’s Walk of Fame). The second issue of Steamshovel was dedicated to the theories of Wilhelm Reich, the scientist who developed a kind of chi accumulator he called an orgone box. Thomas (who quips that Burroughs became his neighbor … after he died and was buried in Bellefontaine) says he’s noticed that “the grass is lighter around Burroughs’ grave, and I tried to make the case that this is because Burroughs sat in the orgone box every day of his life. He was a Reichian. He had more life energy.” (It could be true; junkies don’t often live to be octogenarians.) Timothy Leary and Robert Anton Wilson, co-author of The Illuminatus! Trilogy, were also friends. So Thomas’ approach to conspiracy is a decidedly literary one; the third issue of Steamshovel featured poet Amiri Baraka, though even then it seems that conspiracy sneaked in somehow: Baraka talked about being the only member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee in New York; Lee Harvey Oswald was the only member in New Orleans. (Relating this fact makes Thomas roar with laughter.) Much later, Baraka would be jettisoned from his post as poet laureate of New Jersey after delivering an angry, conspiracy-heavy poem about what happened on 9/11.

“But that third issue, Mae Brussell died,” Thomas says. (Brussell was a Jewish housewife in California who put forth her own sort of Octopus theory based on a transcript of the Warren Commission hearings and thousands upon thousands of newspaper clippings.) “Also,” Thomas continues, “there was another magazine called Critique, which was a conspiracy magazine—but that guy joined a cult and changed the magazine to Sacred Fire, and the magazine was dedicated to the homilies of his guru. It was like breakin’ my heart, because I was putting out this free newsletter to hustle some books and I was into poetry, but it looked like the whole conspiracy world was falling apart—what the heck is going to happen? So I did a call for papers—’People who are interested in conspiracy, send me your stuff.’ And then, that must have been ’92, and to this day—I just came from the post office—to this day I get things like this …”

He pulls out a newsletter from The Worldwide Conspiracy of Einsteinian Relativity. The return address is San Quentin Prison. “I haven’t totally read it yet,” Thomas says. “He’s even sent me a photo of himself. Still, the people in prison, I want to say, ‘If you’re so damn smart, what are you doing in prison?'”

It’s actually been a light day at the post office. Lately, Thomas has been keeping a low profile; he has been planting lilies in his yard and swears that now that he has a house, “I just want to be landed gentry for a while.” He has two kids, a daughter in college and a son who’s just on the cusp of high school. It was during a trip to the airport to pick up his daughter that he realized that he didn’t miss his life during the ’90s and early noughts, especially after 9/11—where he regularly showed up on shows like Kevin Nealon’s The Conspiracy Zone or stepped off airplanes only to be greeted by a constellation of flashing camera bulbs. “I remember one time flying into London, and I was received like I was one of the Beatles,” he laughs. “There were flash cameras going off, guys with microphones saying, ‘Can you talk about this, Mr. Thomas …?’ I was blown away. But then there were other times when I used to do the Reich talk—it’s very difficult to talk about, he was a very complicated guy who used his own language and created his own technology, so the talk can sound a little academic. I remember one time going to a conference, doing a little workshop on Reich, where like only six people signed up.”

He doesn’t, he says, miss the rock-star life. He’d rather be planting hostas. After his distributor, Fine Print, went belly-up around 2000, Steamshovel—like many small presses—had a tough time getting distributed, and Thomas didn’t actually print Steamshovel Press No. 23; it’s a PDF. Everything was, rather logically, rolling to a nice, clean stop.

But somehow, this spring Thomas once again found himself getting ready to embark on another rock-star tour: the first stop being RetroCon, a UFO conference held at the Integratron, a stylized, flying-saucer–shaped building constructed in the Mojave Desert in the ’50s by a UFO contactee, George Van Tassell, who swore it channeled positive energy from the universe. Thomas delivered two lectures, one on a UFO sighting at Maury Island in Washington State and one on “Jack Kirby, Conspiracy Theorist.” (Kirby was the co-creator of a number of Marvel Comics heroes, including the X-Men, Captain America, the Hulk and the Fantastic Four.) Then it was off to the Beyond Knowledge Conference in Liverpool, where he delivered another Maury Island lecture and one on Reich. And this doesn’t even take into account a possible book tour in the fall, when Feral House, the publisher of The Octopus, releases Secret and Suppressed II, Thomas’ follow-up to Jim Keith’s 1993 book, which, among other things, introduced the term “men in black” to the mainstream—and contained the essay that eventually became The Octopus.

Now, before we proceed any further, it’s important to know that the term “conspiracy theorist” is considered pejorative by guys like Thomas. The term “conspiracy researcher” is OK; “parapolitical researcher” is infinitely better: “Politics, of course, is going out and voting for people,” Thomas says. “The ‘para-‘ is everything that goes on behind the scenes in that process.” And the popular perception of the conspiracy theorist “is a cartoon picture created by the media to keep people from taking these kinds of issues seriously,” Thomas says, with a touch of crankiness in his voice, relating the term to a phenomenon he calls “the laughter curtain.” Area 51 is the classic example: Disseminate enough dopey misinformation about little green men, and no one will pay attention to the trillions of dollars being funneled into the military-industrial complex via Area 51’s black budget.

Of course, a cursory look through any of Thomas’ dozen books, or an issue of Steamshovel, will clue you in to why the term irritates him so. As an archivist, his research is naturally both sweeping and impeccable. He’s filed thousands of Freedom of Information Act requests. (Tip: File multiple times for the same material, and one day you’ll get a clueless clerk—that’s how Thomas ended up with all of Wilhelm Reich’s prison correspondence.) He’s made multiple trips to the National Archives for material related to the JFK assassination, which is more difficult than it sounds. You have to know what document to request before the archives will hand it over to you, so doing research there requires a lot of preresearch. He’s a Jedi with LexisNexis and other research tools; he knows how to dig for information that other people don’t know how to dig for, and then he publishes it. Nothing sexier than that. No tinfoil hats, no special Google-fu, no channeling. Just enormous stacks of documents.

“You have to create a triangulation of research, the bulletin-board model of research where you take the bits of data that come in and every one of them has a bias, you have to find out where the bias is, pin it up on a bulletin board,” Thomas explains, sounding every bit the archivist. “When you find a certain kind of information clustered somewhere, you realize you’re onto something. That’s the whole metaphor of Steamshovel Press—your desk gets piled up with bits of information, and you need to create a metaphor for pushing it out of the way. It actually comes from a Dylan song: ‘takes a steam shovel to clear out my head.'”

In an attempt to correct the semantics a little, Thomas created the motto “All conspiracy. No theory,” which you’ll see at the top of his site,, and above the magazine’s logo. Though bypassing the theory part sometimes gets him in trouble (he’s pissed off some people by documenting, for instance, that it was indeed a plane that hit the Pentagon, not a missile, as some 9/11 conspiracists allege), his only-publish-what-you-can-document approach has earned him the respect of those who normally dismiss conspiracists, and he’s absolutely spooked out the true believers; Bob Girard of Arcturus Books said Steamshovel would “feed that dark feeling in the pit of your gut.” But Thomas’ good friend Greg Bishop says that’s not the point.

“It’s informed by history and creativity and radicalism and basic mistrust of people in power,” he says. “Kenn’s about eight or nine years older than me, but I also admire William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac and Leary and Ginsberg and all those people. I include a lot of UFO writers and paranormal writers and psychedelic researchers in my universe of what’s going on. Kenn does not quite as much, but we still have that same spirit of being suspicious of people that don’t have most of the population’s interest in mind.”

That lack of magnanimousness seems to especially extend to segments of the population that like to go poking around in the Octopus’ business. Casolaro was warned several times, sometimes by his sources, that the information he was compiling could be dangerous to his health. And Thomas’ friend and co-author Jim Keith, who wrote for Steamshovel, also died under mysterious circumstances; after suffering a knee injury at Burning Man in 1999, he was taken to Washoe Medical Center in Reno. Before being taken into surgery, Keith told his nephew, “I have the feeling that if they put me under, I am not coming back.” He was correct. Though the hospital ruled that Keith’s death resulted from a blood clot that moved from the site of the injury to his lung, Thomas theorizes that it possibly resulted from tissue contaminated with clostridium bacteria, incidentally one of the superbugs being bred in government laboratories for warfare purposes, which Keith had discussed in his last book, Biowarfare in America (anthrax is another popular germ in weapons labs). Two years later, Ron Bonds, publisher of IllumiNet Press, which had issued Biowarfare, died of clostridium poisoning after eating in a Mexican restaurant—right around the corner from the tissue bank that had been the source of clostridium-infected tendons that had resulted in the deaths of several people undergoing knee surgery. Of course, one is tempted to ask Thomas: Does he ever get nervous about these things?

“Well, you know, Jim Keith and I used to have this discussion: ‘How come they don’t come after us?’ It’s not a conversation I can have with Jim Keith anymore,” Thomas says. Though he’ll josh about black helicopters and aliens, this is not a subject he can approach with levity, not yet. “I have no proof, but Jim Keith, it’s a horrible burden to try and communicate what kind of guy he was, because he was funnier and more charming than I will ever be. In Casolaro’s case, he thought what would protect him would be to turn this into a fictional novel. It doesn’t matter—if you start doing a real investigation and start talking to people, they don’t care if you’re going to write a novel or a story forThe New York Times. They just know that you’re poking around where you don’t need to be. And that could’ve been what happened to Keith.”

And who are “they”? Thomas laughs. “‘They’ are different people at different times. This whole question of why haven’t they killed me—why did they let Abbie Hoffman go for so long? He’s part of the Octopus story. He was delivering his write-up of the Iran-Contra affair when he was forced off the road by a truck. So why don’t they just form an army and go out and shoot every dissident in the country?”—he’s again laughing now—”But they don’t. Sometimes they kill people, sometimes they have the laughter curtain. They make us look like crazy people. That’s the thing about great journalists—they know what not to ask! In some cases, it’s just to maintain access to power, sometimes just to stay alive.” And besides: “My mentor into the world of the weird was Timothy Leary. And Timothy Leary would never accept negative energy. Never. He was in prison, I remember seeing footage of him in 1970 where he was talking about ‘Whoa, how cool is this? I can slow down. I can just sit here and write and read and learn.’ He did that, and then he escaped! He went over the wall. For a while, he was in a cell right next to Charles Manson. He taught me that there’s nothing to be afraid of. There’s no reason to let it get you down. Soak it up. Fight back. And do dharma combat with it.”

Perhaps it’s naive to say this, but it seems that things have changed a bit since the early 1990s, when Danny Casolaro was intrepidly chasing the Octopus like a cross between Columbo and Jacques Cousteau. Whether it’s the transparency brought about by the Web or the brazenness of the current administration in consolidating power in the executive branch or even the conspiracy underground’s success in mainstreaming concepts like black helicopters and MIBs (men in black), it seems to have a slightly less opaque ink cloud to hide behind. Oddly enough, Thomas is finding this phenomenon a little irritating, at least as far as finishing the manuscript for Secret and Suppressed II goes. “We came up with the idea, believe it or not, of trying to—and this must’ve been in January—of trying to expose what a wacky church Barack Obama belonged to. That was obscure at that point!” Thomas laughs. Though the book’s being released to coincide with the 2008 elections, Adam Parfrey, Thomas’ editor at Feral House (which published both editions of The Octopus), says that’s why they’re concentrating on the bigger-picture stuff, like the larger implications of Diebold’s electronic voting machines—and the Freemasons. “We have definitely discussed investigating Freemasonic influence—there’s a lot of interest in that with The Da Vinci Code,” Parfrey says. “Though we’re trying not to have these bizarre intimations about the Vatican, but address Freemasonry as really a large issue in the military as well as the government—with actual, supportable evidence.”

And though the lilies behind Thomas’ house are no doubt flourishing (the Everly Brothers would be happy to know), his spring tour has him wondering how to knacker Steamshovel’s distribution problems; Nexus magazine, he notices, is still on the stands, so there must be some way to do it. “I consider myself a permanent fixture,” he says. “What I may do is stop the magazine at that and create a smaller, comic-book–sized zine, hold onto the name and put that at the top, so it’d beSteamshovel Press presents, say, Popular Alienation or Popular Paranoia and make it smaller and less expensive enough that it can come out more frequently.”

And why abandon the life of the landed gentry? Same reason he always has. “It’s just like when I first started Steamshovel—it was basically out of paranoia that because Mae Brussell had died and the other magazine that did conspiracy stuff had disappeared, I had to make sure it was there for me to consume,” he says. “But even more so, now that the country’s changing again … we have to stimulate and encourage a variety of points of view, eccentricities, the creative life.

“I try to get that across to the people who take this stuff too seriously,” he says. “It’s hard to do, because they’re locked into reality tunnels—that was Leary’s concept. You’re locked into these certain reality tunnels, and you can’t see the bigger picture and can’t sympathize enough with another tunnel to see that there’s something else.

Nugan Hand inspires novel

leave a comment »

Sydney novelist Wayne Grogan.

Author Wayne Grogan has penned a novel based on the Nugan Hand affair called Heavy Allies (It was launched on September 1 by former NSW Premier Bob Carr). 

“The whole subject of Nugan Hand represents both a colossal abuse of international power as well as the biggest criminal conspiracy in Australian history, at least since the Rum Corps,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald. His goal was to “get in touch with the more overt criminal activity connected with the bank” and his research included reading royal commission transcripts and interviewing police officers he met through disgraced former cop Roger Rogerson. 

“I knew the Cross back then,” Rogerson told the Sydney Morning Herald. “I knew the key people in the Nugan Hand Bank. Wayne’s novel has definitely got the ring of authenticity.”

Considering Rogerson’s chequered past and fleeting associations with telling the truth, Grogan’s probably safer treating any of Rogerson’s tips as fiction rather than fact.

Mark Lombardi – An artist’s look at Nugan Hand

leave a comment »

The New York Times described Mark Lombardi as “an investigative reporter’s conceptual artist. His subject is conspiracy and scandal, his method is to ‘follow the money’.” He died in 2000 after taking his own life (or did he? muse some of his friends).  A number of friends like Andy Feehan were mystified by Mark’s death: “When the news of Mark’s death arrived, all of us thought that he was murdered. We assumed that he had made one too many accusations, and that someone made a phone call. We still don’t know what happened. We’d read that the medical examiner ruled Mark’s death a suicide, but we’re unable to understand or accept the idea that Mark would kill himself right when he was at the top of his game.”

Sounds like another famous ‘suicide’ – that of investigative journalist Danny Casolaro, who was investigating Nugan Hand as part of an inter-connected global network he called ‘The Octopus’.

Lombardi called his artworks ‘narrative structures’ that were not unlike the sociograms constructed to show complex social networks.

Here’s how he envisioned the Nugan Hand affair (note: the image is low-res and therefore detail minimal) – imagine if he had teamed up with a good investigative reporter!

The Opal File – Another Gemstone

leave a comment »

The Opal File, also known as The Kiwi Gemstone, is a paper written by Anthony Pollock that links the Skeleton Key to the politics of Australia and New Zealand. This paper has been included in several of the books on the Gemstone Files. This document touches on the rumoured involvement of the CIA (through the Nugan Hand Bank) in the downfall of then-prime minister Gough Whitlam.

The Opal File
by Anthony Pollock 

– A 20 Year History In Brief

“Fear them not, therefore; for there is nothing covered that shall not be
revealed; and hidden, that shall shall not be known. What I tell you in
darkness, that speak in light; and what ye hear in the ear, that proclaim
upon the housetops.” — Matthew

18th May, 1967: Texas oil billionaire Nelson Bunker Hunt, using a
sophisticated satellite technique to detect global deposits, discovers a
huge oil source south of New Zealand in the Great South Basin.

10th June, 1967: Hunt and New Zealand Finance Minister reach an agreement:
Hunt will receive sole drilling rights and Muldoon will receive a
$US100,000 non-repayable loan from Hunt’s Placid Oil Co.

8th September, 1967: Placid Oil granted drilling rights to the Great South

10th May, 1968: Hawaiian meeting between Onassis and top lieutenants
William Colby and Gerald Parsky to discuss establishment of a new front
company in Australia – Australasian and Pacific Holdings Limited – to be
managed by Michael Hand. Using Onassis-Rockefeller banks, Chase Manhattan
and Shroders, Travelodge Management Ltd sets up another front to link the
operations to the US.

Onassis crowned head of the Mafia; Colby (head of CIA covert operations in
S.E. Asia) ran the Onassis heroin operations in the Golden Triangle (Laos,
Burma, Thailand) with 200 Green Beret mercenaries – i.e. the Phoenix

Gerald Parsky deputy to ex-CIA/FBI Robert Maheu in the Howard Hughes
organisation, took orders from Onassis and was made responsible for
laundering skim money from the Onassis casino operations in Las Vegas and
the Bahamas.

Mid-July, 1968: Placid Oil Co and the Seven Sisters (major oil companies)
begin Great South Basin oil exploration – Hunt finances 45.5% of
exploration costs, Gulf Oil 14.5%, Shell (US) 10%, B.P. Oil 10%, Standard
Oil California 10%, Mobil 6.5% and Arco 6.5%.

12th October, 1968: Hunt and Seven Sisters announce confirmation of new oil
source comparable to the Alaskan North Slope – gas reserves estimated at
150 times larger than the Kapuni Field.

Early 1969: Mafia consolidates its banking operations; David Rockefeller
becomes Chairman of Chase Manhattan; Wriston at Citibank and Michele
Sindona captures the Vatican Bank, Partnership Pacific launched by Bank of
America, Bank of Tokyo and Bank of New South Wales.

24th February, 1969: Onassis calls Council meeting in Washington to discuss
strategy to monopolise the Great South Basin discovery. Council members
included Nelson Rockefeller and John McCloy, who managed the Seven Sisters,
and David Rockefeller, who managed the Mafia’s banking operations.

McCloy outlines the plan to capture all oil and mineral resources in
Australia and N.Z.

10th March, 1969: Parsky and Colby use Australasian and Pacific Holdings to
set up a ‘front’ company in Australia. Using old banks – Mellon Bank and
Pittsburgh National Bank – they buy control of near-bankrupt Industrial
Equity Ltd (I.E.L.) managed by New Zealander Ron Brierly. ‘Australasian and
Pacific Holdings’ ‘consultant’ Bob Seldon helps Michael Hand set up the new
organisation. Seldon took orders from Mellon and Pittsburgh National Banks,
while Hand was directly responsible to Gerald Parsky and William Colby. Ron
Brierly would take orders from Hand.

24th July, 1969: New board established for I.E.L. includes Hand, Seldon,
Ron Brierly, plus two Brierly associates – Frank Nugan and Bob Jones. Both
are appointed consultants to Australasian and Pacific Holdings Ltd.

Jones will help Brierly launder funds into real estate (Brierly/Jones
Investments) while Seldon and Nugan will channel funds into oil and mineral
resources through I.E.L.

October 1969: Chase Manhattan begins new operation in Australia with
National Bank Australasia and A.C. Goods Associates – Chase-NBA.

J.C. Fletcher appointed chairman of Seven Sisters’ company – British
Petroleum (N.Z.). 17th February 1970: Gerald Parsky sets up a new
heroin-dollar laundry in Australia – Australian International Finance Corp
– using the Irving Trust Co. New York.

April 1970: Onassis, Rockefeller and the Seven Sisters begin setting up the
shadow World Government using theIlluminati-controlled banks and the
transnational corporations. In Melbourne they set up the Australian
International Finance Corporation using:

* Irving Trust Co. N.Y. – linked to Shell Oil, Continental Oil, Phillips

* Crocker Citizens National – linked to Atlantic Richfield (Arco), Standard
Oil of California which is Rockefeller-controlled.

* Bank of Montreal – Petro Canada, Penarctic Oils, Alberta Gas, Gulf Oil.

* Australia and New Zealand Bank (ANZ).

Meantime, Japanese members of One World Government move into New Zealand,
helped by Finance Minister R. Muldoon; Mitsubishi and Mitsui make a
profitable deal buying up rights to ironsands helped by Marcona Corp. (US)
and Todd (Shell/BP/Todd). Todd rewarded with sole New Zealand franchise for
Mitsubishi vehicles, Muldoon helps Mitsui (Oji Paper Co) obtain a lucrative
320 million cubic foot Kiangaroa Forestry contract with Carter Holt.

November, 1970: Fletchers extend the Rockefeller Travelodge operation by
buying control of New Zealand’s largest travel company – Atlantic and
Pacific Travel.

Manufacturers’ and Retailers’ Acceptance Company (in 1970 changed to
Marac): This firm specialises in leasing and factoring (buying debts at a
discount). It also finances imports and exports. The major shareholders are
the Fletcher Group (38.0%), the Commercial Bank of Australia Ltd (24.7%),
NIMU Insurance (7.7%), Phillips Electrical (3.8%), National Mutual Life
Association (2.4%), New Zealand United Corporation (4.0%). The CBA is a
partner in the supranational Euro-Pacific Corporation, the other partners
being the Midland Bank (UK), the United California Bank (USA), Fuji (Japan)
and Societe Generale de Banque (France).

Early 1971: Onassis and Rockefeller begin global operation to buy influence
for the One World Government concept. They use Lockheed, Northrop and
Litton Industries ‘agent’ Adnan Khashoggi, to organise operations in the
Middle East, Iran and Indonesia. I.C.I. set up $2.5 million slush fund to
Australia and N.Z.

Finance Minister Muldoon changes law to allow Mafia-controlled banks to
begin operations in New Zealand. Links also made by N.Z.I. in preparation
for Paxus control with Hong Kong and Shanghai; Wells Fargo with Broadbank;
Chase Manhattan with General Finance; Bank of America and Barclays with
Fletchers and Renouf in New Zealand United Corp. All members of the
Business Round Table Organisation.

Late 1971: Gulf Oil and their man Brierly begin organising chains of Shell
companies and dummy corporations to conceal their takeover operations of
oil, gas and mineral resources and related industries such as vehicle
franchises, vehicle spare parts and finance services – all part of the
Seven Sisters’ controlled car culture.

To extend links to the US banking operations they buy control of I.S.A.S. 
(NSW) and I.S.A.S. (Qld), which hold sole franchise for construction and
mining equipment produced by International Harvester Credit Co, which is
part of Chase Manhattan Bank and associated with First National Bank
Chicago (Chairman Sullivan also Executive Vice-President of Chase
Manhattan), Continental Illinois (linked with CIA and Mafia Michele Sindona
of Vatican Bank) and Rockefeller’s Standard Oil of Indiana (AMOCO).

I.S.A.S. (Qld) also has strategic holdings in North Flinders Mines,
Flinders Petroleum, Apollo International Minerals.

February 1972: Onassis and Rockefeller help associate Adnan Khashoggi buy
the Security Pacific National Bank in California and take control of the
United California Bank through CIA-linked Lockheed Aircraft Corporation. 
Both banks used by Onassis and Khashoggi to funnel bribes and payoffs via
the CIA’s Deak Bank to captive Japanese and other crooked politicians. 
Security Pacific also used to ‘launder’ over $2 million for Nixon’s
re-election campaign. Khashoggi also buys 21% of Southern Pacific
Properties, which is the major stockholder in Travelodge (Aust), thereby
establishing direct links to New Zealand, and U.E.B. and Fletchers through
its equity links with Travelodge (N.Z.).

April 1972: Mafia banking operations expanded through New Hebrides with
establishment of Australian International Ltd to financePacific development
by the oil companies (Seven Sisters). Banks involved include Irving Trust
NY, Bank of Montreal, Crocker International, Australia & N.Z. Bank and the
Mitsubishi Bank, whose president, Nakamaru, is appointed Chairman.

26th May, 1972: Gerald Parsky installs Michele Sindona as ‘owner’ of
Franklin National Bank, helped by the Gambino Mafia family and David
Kennedy – Chairman of Continental Illinois Bank and Nixon’s Secretary of
the Treasury.

Pacific Basin Economic Council Conference in Wellington, NZ. Vice-President
Shigeo Nagano also chairman of Nippon Steel and member of Onassis and other
World Government organisations. Chairman of NZ sub-committee, J. Mowbray
is also General Manager of the National Bank.

Meanwhile, Michele Sindona, acting as the go-between for the Mafia and the
CIA, was the conduit between US and European banks. Michele Sindona’s
Vatican Bank and associate Calvi’s Abrosiano Bank was used to finance CIA
neo-fascist Italian/Latin American operations through Licio Gelli’s P2
Lodge, which helped to organise the ‘death squads’ of Argentina, Uruguay
and Chile. This aided the P2 members such as Klaus Barbie (‘The Butcher of
Lyons’) and Jose Rega – organiser of the A.A.A. in Argentina.

16th August, 1972: Gulf Oil associate Bob Seldon helps establish new
banking operation, first NZ international banks include Bank of New
Zealand, D.F.C. (Aust), N.Z.I., Morgan Guaranty Trust, Morgan Grenfel and
S.F. Warburg.

Fletchers begins expansion overseas with deals signed in Indonesia, Fiji
and New Guinea.

December 1972: Kirk elected Prime Minister of New Zealand.

February, 1973: Gerald Parsky, William Colby, Michael Hand, Frank Nugan and
Bob Seldon move to further consolidate the Mafia banking operations. In NZ
they acquire 20% Fletcher subsidiary Marac, using the Security Pacific
National Bank helped by Marac Corporate secretary Alan Hawkins.

Frank Nugan and Michael Hand use Fletcher and Renouf and their NZ United
Corporation to link with I.E.L. and Brierly Investments through
cross-shareholding agreement.

In Australia, the Nugan Hand Bank begins operations with 30% of the stock
held by Australasian and Pacific Holdings (100% Chase Manhattan Bank), 25%
by CIA’s Air America (known as ‘Air Opium’), 25% by South Pacific
Properties and 20% held by Seldon, Nugan and Hand.

The Irving Trust Bank’s New York Branch establishes US links between the
CIA and Nugan Hand, a worldwide network of 22 banks set up to:

a) ‘launder’ money from Onassis heroin operations in the Golden Triangle
and Iran;
b) as a CIA funnel to pro-US political parties in Europe and Latin America,
including Colby’s P2;
c) a spying conduit for information from Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and
d) finance arms smuggled to Libya, Indonesia, South America, Middle East
and Rhodesia using the CIA’s Edward Wilson.

Colby and Kissinger use key CIA and Naval Intelligence officers to oversee
the operation, including Walter McDonald (former Deputy Director CIA), Dale
Holmgren (Flight Service Manager CIA Civil Air Transport), Robert Jansen
(former CIA Station Chief, Bangkok), etc.

Heroin flown into Australia by CIA’s Air America and trans-shipped to
Onassis lieutenant in Florida, Santos Trafficante Jr, assisted by
Australian Federal Bureau of Narcotics officials and co-ordinated by CIA’s
Ray Cline.

14th June, 1973: Inauguration of the Onassis shadow World Government – the
Trilateral Commission. Includes over 200 members from the US, Europe and
Japan – bankers, government officials, transnational corporations’ top
executives, trade unionists, etc. Of the world’s largest corporations, 24
directly represented and dozens more through interlocking directorships.

* Trilateralist strategy: monopolisation of the world’s resources,
production facilities, labour technology, markets, transport and finance.
These aims backed up by the US military and industrial complexes that are
already controlled and backed up by the CIA.

18th August, 1973: Ray Cline and Michael Hand meet in Adelaide to discuss
CIA plan to establish spying operations in NZ.

September 1973: Seagram’s, with strong links to Chase Manhattan Bank of
Montreal and Toronto Dominion Bank, buys 2,800 acres ofprime land in
Marlborough helped by Peter Maslen.

17th February, 1974: Mafia sets up New Hebrides Bank – Commercial Pacific
Trust Co (COMPAC). Banks include CBA, Europacific Finance Corporation,
Trustee Executors and Agency Co, Fuji Bank, Toronto Dominion Bank, European
Asian Bank and United California Bank, COMPAC to be used as a cover for
heroin dollar laundering operations.

26th February, 1974: Michael Hand meets Bob Jones in Wellington to
implement plans for the CIA’s new spying operation – countries targeted
include France, Chile, West Germany and Israel.

Using the Brierly/Jones Investment funnel, Jones buys building in Willeston
Street which will be rented to France and Chile, another at Plimmer Steps
to house West Germany and Israel.

CIA will set up eavesdropping communications centre inside the Willeston
Street building and another at 163 The Terrace which will link with
equipment installed in the Plimmer Steps building. Four CIA technicians
will run the whole operation.

April 1974: Finance Minister Rowling appoints Ron Trotter to the Overseas
Investment Commission, whose chairman, G. Lau, is also a member of the Todd
Foundation (Shell/BP/Todd) investment board.

Whitlam and Kirk

Mid-1974: Gough Whitlam and Norman Kirk begin a series of moves absolutely
against the Mafia Trilateralists. Whitlam refuses to waive restrictions on
overseas borrowings to finance Alwest Aluminium Consortium of Rupert
Murdoch, BHP and R.J. Reynolds. Whitlam had also ended Vietnam War support,
blocked uranium mining and wanted more control over US secret spy bases –
e.g. Pine Gap.

Kirk had introduced a new, tough Anti-Monopoly Bill and had tried to
redistribute income from big companies to the labour force through price
regulation and a wages policy.

Kirk had also rejected plans to build a second aluminium smelter near
Dunedin and was preparing the Petroleum Amendment Bill to give more control
over New Zealand oil resources.

Kirk had found out that Hunt Petroleum, drilling in the Great South Basin,
had discovered a huge resource of oil comparable in size to the North Sea
or Alaskan North Slope. Gas reserves alone now estimated at 30 times bigger
than Kapuni and oil reserves of at least 20 billion barrels – enough for
New Zealand to be self-sufficient for years. Oil companies completely
hushed up these facts. To have announced a vast new oil source would
probably mean a decline in world oil prices, which would not have allowed
OPEC and Onassis plans for the Arabs to eventuate. N.Z. could be exploited
at a later date, particularly since the North Sea operations were about to
come on stream – Kirk was the last tohold out.

September, 1974: According to CIA sources, Kirk was killed by the
Trilateralists using Sodium Morphate. Rowling’s first act as NZ Prime
Minister was to withdraw Kirk’s Anti-Monopoly Bill and the Petroleum
Amendment Bill.

Later, Rowling was to be rewarded with ambassadorship to Washington. 
Incidentally, the Shah of Iran was murdered the same way as Kirk on his
arrival in the US.

6th October, 1974: Ray cline implements William Colby plan to oust
Australian Prime Minister Whitlam. Nugan Hand Bank finances payoffs to
Malcolm Fraser and other pro-US politicians. A joint bugging operation
commences between CIA and ASIA.
Rupert Murdoch, playing his part, uses his newspapers and television
network to spread lies and misinformation. Whitlam, as well as refusing to
waive restrictions on overseas borrowing to finance the aluminium
consortium, had plans to ensure that all corporations were at least 50%
Australian-owned. This interfered with the Seven Sisters’ plans to build
three oil refineries at Cape Northumberland in South Australia to exploit
the Great South Basin discovery.

December, 1974: Australian Governor-General John Kerr joins Ray Cline’s
payroll and received his first pay-off of $US200,000 credited to his
account number 767748 at the Singapore branch ofthe Nugan Hand Bank.

11th November, 1975: Governor-General Kerr sacks the Whitlam Government.

August 1975: Rowling re-introduces unrecognisable Commerce Bill, designed
to aid monopolisation of the NZ economy and repeals the News Media
Ownership Act, allowing more foreign ownership of NZ media. The new
legislation does not define monopoly, competition or stipulate permissable
maximum market share, or even ascertain what the public interest is –
resulting in a sell-out to big business.

December, 1975: Election battle between Rowling and Muldoon. Oil companies
pour thousands of dollars into Muldoon’s campaign via National Bank (NZ),
whose general manager Mowbray is also a member of Todd Foundations;
Investment Board Director Tudhope also Managing Director Shell Oil and
Chairman Shell/BP/Todd. Muldoon wins.

February, 1976: Muldoon implements pre-election secret agreement with the
NZ Seven Sisters’ oil representatives of Shell/BP/Todd for helping finance
the National Party campaign.

Muldoon removes the $3 per barrel oil levy for the New Zealand Refining
Company, which increases the oil companies’ profits by 100% at the
taxpayers’ expense and with all future oil prospecting licenses, the
Government has the option to take 51% of any discovery without meeting
exploration costs. This is designed to discourage further exploration,
thereby keeping the lid on the Great South Basin discovery.

Meanwhile, in Australia, new P.M. Malcolm Fraser reopens uranium mining and
opens the way for takeover of mineral resources with big tax breaks for oil
exploration, coal and mining.

Muldoon returns a favour to the oil companies by arranging $US200 million
loan for Maui Gas Development for Shell/BP/Todd.

September, 1976: With captive politicians in place in both Australia and
New Zealand, the Internationalists can now proceed with their strategy of
takeover of the economy and exploitation of natural resources. “In New
Zealand, the elimination of unnecessary competition is fundamental to a
sound economy,” Brierly says.

Parksy and Colby use Brierly/Jones Investments as a vehicle to buy into
A.B. Consolidated Holdings in New Zealand.

Associate of R. Jones, Pat Goodman, is appointed ‘consultant’ of
Australasian and Pacific Holdings.

November, 1976: The Internationalists (Mafia) set up a NZ money ‘funnel’
using Brierley’s City Realties. National Insurance Co acquires 33% of the
stock. Largest stockholders in National Insurance are the US Firemen’s Fund
– Chairman and President Myron Du Bain also Vice Chairman of American
Express (Amex). Chairman of I.E.L. linked International Harvester, Archie
McCardell, also Amex Director. Amex linked with Chase Manhattan and seven
Sisters’ Texaco and Mobil. Du Bain also Director of CIA-linked United
California Bank, which is a partner in Commercial Pacific Trust.

To complete the money funnel, National Insurance becomes a stockholder in
Chase Manhattan’s Chase-NBA. Brierley’s declared assets reach $100 million,
with shareholder’s capital of only $2.5 million – all cash acquisitions.

3rd February, 1977: Parksy and Colby close down the Brierley/Jones
Investment funnel and open up seperate channels for Brierley and Jones. 
Jones will be supplied with ‘laundered’ funds via Sydney branch of the
Nugan Hand Bank, while for Ron Brierley, Gerald Parsky uses Myron Du Bain,
Dierctor of United California Bank and also chairman and president of the
US Firemen’s Fund, which are the largest stockholders in National Insurance
(NZ). Funds to be ‘laundered’ via Chase Manhattan Bank through National
Insurance to City Realty and via United California Bank through COMPAC (New
Hebrides) to National Insurance and City Realties.

To expand the Bierley/I.E.L. ‘front’, Parsky establishes Industrial Equity
Pacific (Hong Kong).

September 1977: Brierley’s new holding company begins operations – A.B. 
Consolidated. H.W. Revell appointed Deputy Chairman and B. Hancox General
Manager, while newly-appointed directors include S. Cushing, B. Judge, O.
Gunn and P. Goodman, linked with Renouf, Fletcher and Papps through

* Strategy: To target and divide key sectors of the economy for takeover,
exploitation and monopolisation. Operations to extend to use Hong Kong
facility, I.E.P. Fletchers to extend the Khashoggi/Rockefeller Travelodge
operation by taking holdings in Vacation Hotels and Intercontinental
Properties (Renouf Chairman).

October, 1977: Muldoon and JOhn Todd – Shell/BP/Todd – sign an agreement. 
NZ Govt would take 24.5% holding in the Great South Basin for $1.65
Billion. Hunt would reduce his holding from 45.5% to 27.5% and Arco would
sell its 6.5%.

* Reason: Hunt did not possess the technology to pump oil from deep water;
Gulf possessed the technology but did not tell Hunt. Arco was not told
anything and were swindled out of its 6.5% concession.

November, 1977: Muldoon introduces the S.I.S Amendment Bill, designed to
keep the economy free of obstruction and to help uncover obstructive
elements. Telephone taps, mail tampering and other surveillance methods
approved after CIA input on contents of legislation.

Late 1977: Muldoon travels to the US to meet top Rockefeller officials,
including Trilateralists’ Deputy Secretary of State, Warren Christopher,
and Richard Bolbrooke, who were in charge of the new “South Pacific Desk”
at the State Department established by Rockefeller to target exploitatin of
both New Zealand and Australia. In Los Angeles, Muldoon meets top
Rockefeller officials, Robert Anderson (Rockwell Chairman, also Director of
Kashoggi’s Security Pacific National Bank) and P. Larkin (Rockwell
Director, also Chairman, Executive Committee Security Pacific National Bank
and Director of Marac).

April, 1978: Muldoon sets up Petrocorp. New Zealand taxpayers pay for the
exploration costs but the oil companies control all distribution outlets. 
Muldoon blocks development of Maui B as restructured supplies mean higher
prices and bigger profits for Shell/BP/Todd. South Island gas market not
developed as Great South Basin fields closer than Kapuni. Plans develop
for re-opening of National Parks for mineral exploitation.

22nd July, 1978: Director of Australian Federal Bureau of Narcotics
suspends his invetigation into the Nugan Hand Bank after pressure from the
CIA and Australian politicians controlled by Mafia, particularly Malcolm

Brierly’s declared assets reach $200 million, with shareholders’ funds only
$17 million.

May, 1979: Trilateral Commission secretary Zbignieu Brzezinski appoints
Muldoon chairman of Board of Governors of IMF/World Bank on orders of David
Rockefeller. Muldoon would head three-man administration committee which
included Canadian Finance Minister Mitchell Sharp, key figure in the Mafia
Council and the Trilateral Commission. Australian Treasurer McMahon also

8th June, 1979: Michael Hand, Frank Nugan, Brierley and James Fletcher meet
in Hand’s Sydney penthouse to discuss the establishment of the New Zealand
Mafia organisation.

Mid- 1979: Gulf Oil using its man Brierley, begins operations designed to
capture key sectors of the economy. A.B Consolidated restructured into the
Goodman Group and Goodman to run operations but with the majority of the
stock held by IEL and Brierley using Shell companies plus dummy

* Strategy: To take over food and produce resources, Brierley and Fletcher
restructured a small private company, H.W. Smith, using Cyril Smith as
Chairman but with key executives Judge, Collins and McKenzie. Bob Jones

Private company used, as no Commerce Commission control, accounts not
published, no public disclosure of transactions. Bunting is established as
a shell company and the South Island is targeted for asset-stripping and
takeover, as well as key sectors of theautomobile industry.

Unlimited funds channelled through City Realties, NZUC and Marac extends
Travelodge operations by buying control of Transholdings, which has
strategic holdings in Vacation Hotels and Tourist Corp. Fiji Holdings.

17th August, 1979: New Zealand Mafia inaugral meeting in Sydney including
Hand, Brierley, Fletcher, Goodman, R.Trotter, Alan Hawkins and L.Papps.

Key sectors of the economy would be taken over- food, using Goodman;
forestry and farming, using Fletcher and Trotter; property, using Brierley
and Jones. Brierley, Hand and Papps would be responsible for banking,
insurance and finance, while Hand and Hawkins would be responsible for
setting up new “laundry” channels into New Zealand.

The economy would be taken over using cheap loans of less than 5%, while
consumers would pay 28%.

October, 1979: BP Oil begis $100 million joint venture deal with Fletcher
and Trotter at Tasman.

Muldoon makes secret deal with oil companies which effectively robs New
Zealand taxpayers by giving Shell/BP/Todd the Maui Gas deal. Normally the
granting of drilling rights on public land is done using a worldwide system
which incorporates an auction tender system. Muldoon bypassed this. 
Also, Shell/BP/Todd pays no tax on Kapuni profits, while putting funds into
Maui development.

19th November, 1979: Secret meeting in Auckland between Muldoon, Fletcher
and Trotter to transfer 43% Tasman Pulp and Paper held by New Zealand
Government to Challenge Corporation (Chairman Trotter) and Fletchers. 
Tasman has lucrative 75-year contract for cheap timber signed in 1955.

Muldoon paid off with a $1 million ‘non-repayable’ loan – $500,000 to be
paid into account number 8746665 at New Hebrides branch of the Australian
International Bank.

November, 1979: Muldoon drops restrictions on foreign investment. AMAX
(Standard Oil of California subsidiary) captures the Martha Hill goldmine.

Muldoon unveils the Government’s plans (instructed by Rockefeller) to form
New Zealand into an offshore production base for the multi-national
corporations as benefits include government export incentives, stable
government, cheap labour, and so on.

27th November, 1979: Gerald Parsky’s lieutenant, David Kennedy, meets
Muldoon to deliver $US100,000 cash to Muldoon for implementing the
Internationalists’ Mafia Think Big plans.

These plans began with big contracts and guaranteed profits for the Seven
Sisters, Bechtel, Mitsubishi, Mitsui, Nippon Steel, Internationalists’
Mafia banks.

With the experimental petroleum plant, the oil price has to be $50/barrel
to be profitable, yet Mobil’s profits are guaranteed.

New Zealand Steel is to be expanded 500%, even though there was a global
steel glut of 50%.

Fletchers own 10% of New Zealand Steel and are majority stockholders in
Pacific Steel and control monopoly over wire rod, reinforcing steel. Also,
New Zealand taxpayers subsidise Fletchers’ profits.

Muldoon introduces the National Development Bill with ‘fast-track’
legislation, to keep the economy ‘free of obstruction’ for long-term
monopolisation. C.E.R. plan introduced, designed to integrate the economies
of Australia and New Zealand with the Trilateral Commission for the purpose
of exploiting the South Pacific countries and as a ‘back-door’ entrance
into China – the world’s largest untapped consumer market. New Zealand is
also the closest country to Antarctica, which has a vast mineral resource
for future exploitation.

“Think Big” projects begin, even though Muldoon aware of studies that show
New Zealand could conserve up to 40% of energy consumption using existing
technology, which would mean funds could be invested elsewhere to lower
consumer prices, lower inflation rates, less demand for imported oil and
increased imployment by creating new industry to manufacture and install
energy-saving technology. None of these options seriously considered as
all would lessen profits for members of the Rockefeller organisations.

December 1979: Muldoon unveils ‘stage two’ of a four-stage plan to exploit
the Great South Basin discovery. Plan prepared by Trilateralist ‘Think
Tank’ – the Brookings Institute.

‘Stage Two’ includes methanol plant and synthetic petrol plant, which would
initially use gas from the Maui field and later would link with underwater
gas pipe from Campbell Island.

With the New Zealand Steel 500% expansion, ‘stage three’ of the project and
Think Big contracts to go to Bechtel, Fluor Corp., Mitsubishi, Mitsui,
Nippon Steel, etc. All investments would be financed by the New Zealand

17th January, 1980: $500,000 deposited in Muldoon’s account number 8746665
at the Australian International Bank, being the final payment for the
Tasman deal.

Early 1980: Kashoggi Travelodge operations extended with affiliation
agreement between Dominion Breweries and Western International Hotels
(Seattle First National Bank).

May, 1980: Mafia’s Nugan Hand banking operation crashes after Frank Nugan
killed. Death ruled as suicide even though no fingerprints found on the
rifle. Maloney, Houghton, Yates and Hand shred important documents, but
miss some. CIA helps Hand and Bank President Donald Beasley escape to the
U.S. The CIA and Australian Security Intelligence Organisation cover
everything up. Beazley appointed President of Miami City National Bank, run
by Alberto Dugue for ‘laundering’ profits from the CIA Colombian cocaine

There is a probability that Michael Hand killed Frank Nugan because of his
involvement with Hand’s fiancee.

25th May, 1980: Colby arrived in Australia to discuss replacement of the
Nugan Hand Bank with Hand, Brierley, and Seldon. Immediate funding
available from Sydney branch of the Deak Bank, a separate CIA operation,
and IEL would be used to buy NZI Corp., to prepare for future laundering

Maloney, Houghton, Yates, and Hand would shred all documents leading back
to the New Zealand Great South Basin connection, and the CIA would help
Hand and Bank President Donald Beazley escape to the USA. The CIA and ASIO
would also cover everything up.

Hand and Beazley turn up in Miami – Beazley appointed President and Hand
‘consultant’ to the Miami City National Bank, but also Hand turned up in El
Salvador to help organise bankrolling of the Contras with other ex- members
of Nugan-Hand.

23rd June, 1980: New Zealand Mafia, including Brierley, Fletcher, Trotter,
Jones, Hawkins, Goodman, and Papps meet in Wellington to discuss merger of
Fletcher Challenge and Tasman.

In order to replace Nugan Hand Bank’s 22 world-wide branches, quick moves
are made to buy control of NZI by New Zealand Mafia using Brierley, thereby
capturing an established, world-wide organisation through the Hong Kong and
Shanghai Bank, which is also linked to the CIA through its subsidiary,
World Finance Corporation.

Late 1980: Fletchers, with strong Rockefeller links, obtains lucrative
contracts on US Bases in the Pacific and joint ventures in Saudi Arabia and

Control extended over New Zealand natural resources – Fletcher Challenge
and Tasman Pulp and Paper merged. NZFP takes control of M.S.D. Spiers and
Moore Le Messurier (Aust). Brierley begins joint venture with NZFP through
Williamson and Jeffrey. I.E.L, through Goodman, buys 20% of Watties and
begins cross-shareholding agreement. Goodman continues buying up control
of NZ bakeries and flour- mills.

February, 1981: TNL., Brierley, AMOIL and MIM Holdings begin joint gold
mining operation. MIM major shareholder is ASARCO (US), whose Chairman,
Barber, is also Director of Chase Manhattan Bank.

New Zealand Insurance and South British merger.

Parliamentarians For World Order – Richard Prebble elected one of twelve

Fletcher and Papps (Chairman UEB) sell their hotel operations to
Singaporian interest clossely associated with the Pritzker family – owners
of the Hyatt Hotel chain. Bueton Kanter, Pritzker family lawyer and
Director of Hyatt Hotels, who helped arrange the deal, was an old family
partner of Paul Helliwell (CIA paymaster for the Bay of Pigs fiasco) and
had helped the Pritzker family set up tax shelters using the CIA’s
Mercantile Bank and Trust and the Castle Bank, which had been set up by
Helliwell for ‘laundering’ profits from the Onassis heroin operations as
well as ‘skim money’ from the Hughes casino operations in Las Vegas.

Others who used these banks include Richard Nixon, Bebe Rozo, Robert Vesco,
Teamsters Union, etc.

12th March, 1981: Brierley calls secret meeting in Auckland, which
includes Jones, Fletcher, Hawkins, Papps and Burton Kanter, to discuss
transfer of the Fletcher Challenge and UEB hotel operations to the
Singapore front company controlled by the Pritzker family.

20th July, 1981: Parsky, Colby, Brierley and Seldon meet in Sydney with
two new members, Kerry Packer and Alan Bond.

Chase Manhattan and Security Pacific National Bank will acquire 60% of
Packer’s company, with the stock being held in Australia, and 35% Bond’s
company, with the stock being held in Hong Kong.

August 1981: Gulf Oil, using Brierley, strengthens its hold over New
Zealand natural resources. Cue Energy launched, starring Lawrey and Gunn. 
NZOG launched with strategic holdings by Jones, Renouf and Brierley with
licences in PPD 38206 and 38204 – both next to Hunt’s Great South Basin
discovery, NZOG also controls 80 million tonnes of coal through the Pike
River Coal Company.

Brierley-controlled Wellington Gas, Christchurch Gas, Auckland and Hawkes
Bay Gas and Dual Fuel Systems (Australasia) which controls the vehicle gas
conversion market.

Liquigas Limited set up to distribute LPG, controlled by Shell/BP/Todd and
Fletcher Challenge.

15th February, 1982: Brierley calls New Zealand meeting – Jones, Fletcher,
Trotter, Hawkins, Goodman and Papps. New members include Bruce Judge, J.
Fernyhough, and Frank Renouf.

With Muldoon about to deregulate the liquor industry, Brierley and
Fernyhough plan to buy up the New Zealand liquor industry, along with its
outlets, Lion Breweries and Rothmans to help.

Brierley will do the same in Australia. J.R. Fletcher becomes Managing
Director of Brierley’s Dominion Breweries to oversee operations. Rothmans
and Brierley (through Goodman) have equal holdings in Saudicapital Corp. 
Lion Directors Myers and Fernyhough also stockholders in NZOG.

Fletcher and Brierley begin their takeover of the freezing works industry. 
FCL buys into South Island works while Brierley begins takeover of Waitaki
NZR through Watties with the help of Athol Hutton.

With Think Big projects beginning, Fletcher and Trotter plan to take
strategic holdings in NZ Cement, Wilkins Davies, Steel & Tube etc., and
Brierley would use Renouf to take 3% stake of the Martha Hill gold-mine.

Also targetted are clothing, footwear, carpet manufacture and more of the
auto industry for takeover and monopolisation.

June, 1982: Meantime, in Australia, an new money funnel begins. H.W Smith
buys to obscure South Pine Quarries, which is renamed Ariadne (Aust). 
South Pine Quarries owns 50% of Coal-Liquid Inc., with the other half owned
by US Defence contractors McDonnellDouglas. Coal-Liquid renamed Impala

The common link between Gulf Oil and McDonnell Douglas is the CIA’s
Mercantile Bank and Trust, which both companies use for world-wide bribery
and payoff operations. McDonnell Douglas officials McKeough and
G.T.Hawkins later appointed directors of Impala Securities.

US links strengthened through Industrial Equity Pacific, which acquires
part of Higbee Company in Cleveland, which in turn is closely linked to the
National City Bank of Cleveland. This bank is closely associated with Gulf
Oil’s bank, Pittsburgh National and Mellon Bank.

Bruce Judge installed as Ariadne manager.

also director of Gulf Oil. Crown Zellerbach Corp. has direct connections
to Rockefeller through directors Mumford, Hendrickson and Granville, to
United California Bank through Roth and to the Bank of America through
Chairman C.R. Dahl.

Meanwhile, Robert Jones Investments floated to extend operations of City
Realties, Ilmond Properties, Chase Corp., etc. The Commerce Building in

messages prepared in the US by the CIA and with New Zealand election
imminent, tell voters to support the Labour Party, the New Zealand Party

Labour victory.

Later, Lange agrees to repay the favour to Brierley by selling the
Government holding in the Kariori Pulp Mill to Winstones. New Zealand
taxpayer loses $100 million.

Government then becomes the arm of big business, using economic policies
provided by the Business Round Table, implemented by Finance Minister
Roger Douglas and the package being sold by David Lange, who also keeps up
a noisy CIA directed ANZUS withdrawal campaign.

* Reason: 1) ANZUS Treaty did not cover Mafia requirements over the Great
South Basin discovery; 2) To identify any oppositin or threats within New
Zealand who align themselves with supposed Government policy, Lange
increases the SIS budget and strangthens links with the CIA.

econmomic policies provided by the Business Round Table (NZ Mafia front)

their Mafia organisation. Other plans include the laundering of funds

In London, Chase Manhattan would takeover stockbrokers Simon & Coates who
specialise in Australasia Mafia owned companies such as Fletcher Challenge,

supported by US Air Force and Navy with starting date of 8th February,
1988. An integral part of the plan Saudi and Kuwaiti oil tankers would fly
the US flag to provoke an Iranian attack so that US invasion of Iran would
be ‘justified’.

* Reason: The Seven Sisters wanted to exploit a secret oil field near
Bandar Abbas discovered in 1976 with estimate 150 billion barrels and also
a huge gold source at Neyshabur discovered in 1977.

The Iranian invasion would begin after the World economic system was

Michael J. Riconosciuto vs US Justice Dept

with 2 comments

INSLAW, INC., Debtor.
CASE NO. 85-00070
(Chapter 11)
INSLAW, INC., Plaintiff
CASE NO. 85-00070
Adversary Proceeding
NO. 86-0069



I, MICHAEL J. RICONOSCIUTO, being duly sworn, do hereby state as follows:

1. During the early 1980’s, I served as the Director of Research for a joint venture between the Wackenhut Corporation of Coral Gables, Florida, and the Cabazon Band of Indians in Indio, California. The joint venture was located on the Cabazon reservation.

2. The Wackenhut-Cabazon joint venture sought to develop and/or manufacture certain materials that are used in military and national security operations, including night vision goggles, machine guns, fuel-air explosives, and biological and chemical warfare weapons.


3. The Cabazon Band of Indians are a sovereign nation. The sovereign immunity that is accorded the Cabazons as a consequence of this fact made it feasible to pursue on the reservation the development and/or manufacture of materials whose development or manufacture would be subject to stringent controls off the reservation. As a minority group, the Cabazon Indians also provided the Wackenhut Corporation with an enhanced ability to obtain federal contracts through the 8A Set Aside Program, and in connection with Government-owned contractor-operated (GOCO) facilities.

4. The Wackenhut-Cabazon joint venture was intended to support the needs of a number of foreign governments and forces, including forces and governments in Central America and the Middle East. The Contras in Nicaragua represented one of the most important priorities for the joint venture.

5. The Wackenhut-Cabazon joint venture maintained close liaison with certain elements of the United States Government, including representatives of intelligence, military and law enforcement agencies.

6. Among the frequent visitors to the Wackenhut-Cabazon joint venture were Peter Videnieks of the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., and a close associate of Videnieks by the name of Earl W. Brian. Brian is a private businessman who lives in Maryland and who has maintained close business ties with the U.S. intelligence community for many years.

7. In connection with my work for Wackenhut, I engaged in some software development and modification work in 1983 and 1984 on the proprietary PROMIS computer software product. The copy of PROMIS on which I worked came from the Department of Justice. Earl W. Brian made it available to me through Wackenhut after acquiring it from Peter Videnieks, who was then a Department of Justice contracting official with responsibility for the PROMIS software. I performed the modifications to PROMIS in Indio, California; Silver Spring, Maryland; and Miami, Florida.

8. The purpose of the PROMIS software modifications that I made in 1983 and 1984 was to support a plan for the implementation of PROMIS in law enforcement and intelligence agencies worldwide. Earl W. Brian was spearheading the plan for this worldwide use of the PROMIS computer software.

9. Some of the modifications that I made were specifically designed to facilitate the implementation of PROMIS within two agencies of the Government of Canada: the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS). Earl W. Brian would check with me from time to time to make certain that the work would be completed in time to satisfy the schedule for the RCMP and CSIS implementations of PROMIS.

10. The proprietary versions of PROMIS, as modified by me, was, in fact, implemented in both the RCMP and the CSIS in Canada. It was my understanding that Earl W. Brian had sold this version of PROMIS to the Government of Canada.

11. In February 1991, I had a telephone conversation with Peter Videnieks, then still employed by the U.S. Department of Justice. Videnieks attempted during this telephone conversation to persuade me not to cooperate with an independent investigation of the government’s piracy of INSLAW’s proprietary PROMIS software being conducted by the Committee on the Judiciary of the U.S. House of Representatives.

12. Videnieks stated that I would be rewarded for a decision not to cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee investigation. Videnieks forecasted an immediate and favorable resolution of a protracted child custody dispute being prosecuted against my wife by her former husband, if I were to decide not to cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee investigation.

13. Videnieks also outlined specific punishments that I could expect to receive from the U.S. Department of Justice if I cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation.

14. One punishment that Videnieks outlined was the future inclusion of me and my father in a criminal prosecution of certain business associates of mine in Orange County, California, in connection with the operation of a savings and loan institution in Orange County. By way of underscoring his power to influence such decisions at the U.S. Department of Justice, Videnieks informed me of the indictment of these business associates prior to the time when that indictment was unsealed and made public.

15. Another punishment that Videnieks threatened against me if I cooperate with the House Judiciary Commitee [sic] is prosecution by the U.S. Department of Justice for perjury. Videnieks warned me that credible witnesses would come forward to contradict any damaging claims that I made in testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, and that I would subsequently be prosecuted for perjury by the U.S. Department of Justice for my testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.


[Signed]: Michael J. Riconosciuto

Signed and sworn to before me this 21st day of March, 1991.
