HILLARY SERVER-GATE COVERED UP BY FBI DIRECTORS

Offshore hedge funds feed payola to Hillary and run the FBI

Contributing Writers | Opinion | AMERICANS FOR INNOVATION  | Apr. 01, 2016, Updated Apr. 05, 2016 | PDF
James B. Comey, FBI Director (2013-current)
Fig. 1 – James B. Comey. FBI director since 2013 when he replaced 12-year director Robert S. Mueller. Mueller was chief counsel for London-based bank HSBC, exposed in 2015 for sheltering $100 billion in client funds in murky offshore tax havens populated by drug dealers, money launderers and arms traffickers. Comey also served as chief counsel for Bridgewater Associates, the largest hedge fund in the world. In 2012, Comey's Bridgewater salary was $6,632,616 just before taking over the helm at the FBI. In his first year at the FBI, he received another $3.3 million in Bridgewater severance cash outs. Others might call it payola from his Cartel buds. A year later, his net worth jumped up to $34 million. Comey is either the best lawyer ever, or he keeps secrets from the American people. With such exclusive Cartel relationships nurtured by Hillary and Bill, it is highly doubtful Comey will actually move against Hillary Clinton for abusing national security on her personal server.

(Apr. 01, 2016)The FBI and Justice Department have stubbornly refused to prosecute heinous criminal acts of the Obama Administration. They include Benghazi, Fast and Furious gun running, Hillary’s private server, 2008 bank bailout, social networking patent theft, illegal NSA snooping, energy company subsidies, IRS targeting of conservatives, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) confiscations, baby parts trafficking, LIBOR rigging, open borders, overstayed visas of more than one million people, religious persecution and so on.

Now we know why

The current and former FBI directors are members of a dangerous Cartel whose agenda is a self-styled New World Order.

For new readers, the “Cartel” is a group of about 200 known bankers, lawyers, politicians, bureaucrats, technologists and judges, both Republicans and Democrats, who are deeply invested in one another through relationships, stocks and mutual funds. This group is currently attempting to seize control of global information data flow. Their agenda is defined by A New World Order doctrine. See below.

A light was shined on the FBI director when it was discovered that former FBI director, Robert S. Mueller, III  (2001-2013), recommended Obama’s Supreme Court recent nominee, Merrick B. Garland, to be circuit judge for the District of Columbia in 1995.

New World Order proponents, like hedge fund billionaire, George Soros, and former Hillary Clinton political adviser, Anne-Marie Slaughter, call it A New World Order. The rest of us call it plain old greed and lust for power in new clothes.

We are approaching a Point of No Return: A digital world controlled by spies & power-mongers

The quantum difference from past attempts by power-brokers to rewrite history is the ubiquity of the digital world. In our new digital world, information is more valuable than gold.

Since about 1990, unscrupulous people in banking, technology, politics, intelligence and law compared notes and began joining forces to embed their power permanently while lining their pockets.

The AFI research below concludes:

  1. FBI directors since 2001 have been tied at the hip to a Cartel that promotes a new world order. The current FBI director James B. Comey (2013-current), and former director Robert S Mueller (2001-2013) have numerous financial holdings and relationships that tie them unmistakably to this group.

  2. The net worth of FBI directors since 2001 have skyrocketed during the Great Recession:
  1. Comey’s from $206,000 in 2002 to up to $33.5 million in 2012 ($3.33 million increase per year)

  2. Mueller’s from $1.8 million in 2001 to $7.0 million in 2011 ($520,000 increase per year)
  1. FBI directors since 2001 have enjoyed exclusive hedge fund holdings not open to average Americans:
  1. Comey was paid a $6,632,616 salary in 2012 by Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, then another $3,235,654 when he left Bridgewater to become FBI director.

  2. Comey was general counsel for London bank HSBC which was caught sheltering $100 billion in dubious client funds in murky offshore accounts.

  3. Mueller held two exclusive hedge fund investments run by Bank of New York with at least 36% of the funds' assets run out of the Cayman Islands. One fund, Defenders Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund LLC (one of four names the fund had), was closely associated with Ponzi schemers including Bernie Madoff. Mueller’s fund was fined $200 million by the SEC for funneling clients to Bernie Madoff.
  1. Commercial Power-Mongers: FBI directors since 2001 are tied intimately with the IBM Eclipse Foundation and the theft of Leader Technologies’ social networking invention. (The now familiar cast of characters are: IBM, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, JPMorgan, GE, Morgan Stanley, Qualcomm, HP, Vanguard, Fidelity, Cisco, Wind River, Eurotech SpA, Xerox, Oracle, SAP, Wells Fargo, Intel, HSBC, Lockheed Martin, etc.)

  2. Current FBI director Comey, who was general counsel at Lockheed Martin, is and has been active IBM Eclipse member. Therefore, Comey and Lockheed were complicit in the theft of social networking, perhaps the most important invention since the light bulb.

  3. In 2012, Comey held up to $100,000 stock in BHP Billiton Ltd. ADR, an Australian ore producer, including uranium.

    On Jun. 20, 2012, Bill Clinton was paid $175,000 by BHP Billiton for a speech in New York. Just coincidence?

    On Sep. 06, 2005, Bill Clinton brokered a UrAsia uranium mining deal in Kazakhstan that netted The Clinton Foundation $152 million in “donations” and $1 million in Goldman Sachs fees, the broker of that uranium deal.

Clinton and Comey interests are inseparable

Comey, Clinton and FBI interests could not be more tightly aligned.

The FBI directors and Justice Department senior Attorneys General have been protecting Obama’s, the Clintons’ and the Cartel’s objectives for going on two decades. This protection extends to other members of the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.

The former Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. was an evident Cartel plant. He did not prosecute any of this criminality. Holder bought the judges in Leader v. Facebook and aided the theft of social networking from Leader Technologies because the Cartel wanted to use it to consolidate their power and control.

The current Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, is also a Cartel patsy. She will follow orders dutifully.

So the question of whether Hillary will get out of her email server problem is up to Comey, who will pass it to Lynch, who will likely find a way to punt. This gaggle of attorneys has taken the art of misdirection to new heights.

Hillary is Comey’s “godmother”

Judging from James B. Comey’s investments and relationships, the zebra will not change its stripes.

As a result, Comey and Loretta Lynch will very likely fabricate a way to protect Hillary in a tangle of interlocking and indecipherable legal machinations.

After all, Hillary and Bill are Mueller’s and Comey’s "godparents."

[As this post went to press, the State Department suspended its review of Hillary's possession of top secret emails on her private server. Citing the FBI investigation as the reason, we are suspicious of misdirection. With this suspended review, the State Department has created the opportunity for the FBI to kick the can back to the State Department "hypothetically: to complete their investigations before making a recommendation for or against indictment." It will all sound very reasonable. Remember, these people are all attorneys skilled in deception.]

Latest name for corruption: “Public-private partnerships”

The latest smokescreen for this new world order agenda is “public-private partnerships.” When you hear that, grab your wallet and your privacy.

George Soros
George Soros
Anne-Marie Slaughter
Anne-Marie Slaughter

The "patron saint" of “public-private partnerships” in the Obama Administration is Anne-Marie Slaughter. Slaughter served as a Hillary Clinton senior political adviser at the State Department (2009-2011). Slaughter published A New World Order and is related to her new world order mentor George Soros by marriage.  Much of what we know about Slaughter's relationship to Hillary comes from Judicial Watch’s FOIA releases from Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Slaughter famously encouraged Obama and Clinton to “harness private incentives to public goals.” To some, this sounds like German Fascism where Adolf Hitler did not nationalize industries that supported his policies. On the other hand, Jewish businesses and property were confiscated.

In other words, Obama and Clinton have used the power of their office to reward those who agree with them and punish those who don’t.

This partisan policy has forsaken the American Republic. Instead of the process of compromise our Republic is suffering a wave of scandals including the bank bailout, energy company subsidies, Obamacare, IRS Tea Party targeting, BLM land rights confiscations, trafficking in baby body parts, LIBOR fixing, America Invents Act, Fast and Furious, Common Core, Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), open borders, Islamic pandering, allowing/losing more than one million visa violators and attacks on religious values.

Why has the FBI failed to prosecute these evident crimes?

FBI operations are shrouded in secrecy. Uncovering illegal conduct within the FBI is a minefield where out-of-the-office discussion of top secret information generally lands you in prison and the victim of smear campaigns by the powers that be.

An FBI run by honorable people keeping secrets is a good thing. However, an FBI run by money-grubbing, power-grabbing opportunists in the name of national security threatens the American Republic itself.

Follow the money

One of the few times the public gets a glimpse into the personal affairs of the FBI director is in their Senate confirmation hearing and their required annual financial disclosure. The rest of the time, these people just refuse to answer questions or stonewall, with a smile and condescending “trust us” words, or with belligerence (Hillary: "What difference does it make.").

Judge Merrick B. Garland’s nomination raised suspicion about the FBI’s impartiality

Merrick B. Garland
Judge Merrick B. Garland, Chief Judge, D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals (1995-current); Merrick's holdings increase from $3.5 up to $19.1 between 1995-2012. Most of this wealth increase occurred while Mueller directed the FBI.
Robert S. Mueller
Robert S. Mueller, III

Judge Garland’s 1995 Senate confirmation document included a letter of recommendation from Robert S. Mueller, then Assistant Attorney General, later FBI Director (2001-2013).

Investigation into Mueller’s 2001 and 2011 financial disclosures revealed an astounding increase in net worth from $1.8 to $7.0 million. Cleverly buried in 233 entries were two hedge funds invested in almost $100 billion in hedge fund assets with at least 36% of them offshore in the Cayman Islands.

Mueller hedge “funds of funds” hide many sins

Mueller held Defenders Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund LLC and Mellon Optima L/S Strategy Fund LLC. These “funds of funds” invest in other hedge funds with innocuous names like “Pershing Square” and Glenview Institutional Partners.” But as HSBC whistleblower Hervé Falciani revealed in 2015, many are secret havens for money laundering, arms trafficking and tax evasion.

Mueller’s exclusive funds were not open to the general public. The minimum investment in several of the funds of funds is $10,000,000—MESSAGE: Great unwashed Americans do not qualify, but we'll make an exception for FBI director Mueller.

Mueller was evidently allowed into these funds by the Cartel to buy influence at the FBI. See previous post for more on this investigation.

Both Mueller hedge funds were managed by Mellon Bank of New York (BNY).

Ground Zero for Washington's poisoned well?

No less than ten (10) BNY directors were shared between Mueller’s Defenders and Mellon Optima funds.

He is secretly driving your economic life. What? You didn't get the memo?!

Laughably, these people were mostly designated “outside directors.” According to ethics laws, an outside director must have an “arm’s length” relationship to the company. One cannot be an "outside director" and be employed by the company also. This is a bad joke, a charade. Clearly these people care nothing about real ethics, they only make their actions look ethical to an unsuspecting outsider. Attorneys are especially adept at such deceptions. American regulators are obviously turning a blind eye for their friends. The system of accountability is broken.

These hedge fund disclosures are a charade of transparency. Are these people Ground Zero for the corruption that has poisoned the well in Washington, D.C.? Inquiring minds wonder. Few photos of these people are available, in fact, only two.

Mueller’s Defenders Fund had four names (same BNY bank) during its 9 years existence.

  1. 2002-2004: Ivy Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund LLC
  2. 2004-2009: BNY Ivy Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund LLC
  3. 2009-2010: Defenders Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund LLC
  4. 2010-2011: Ivy Asset Management LLC

Mueller benefited from Ponzi schemers

The incorporator of Mueller’s Defenders Fund was William P. Sauer. He had been sued two months earlier by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission for running two Ponzi schemes for which he eventually paid $5 million to settle.

Then, the fourth name for Mueller’s holding, Ivy Asset Management fed clients to Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff and eventually paid $200 million to settle those complaints.

Tellingly, the FBI never prosecuted any of these BNY Ponzi schemers associated with Mueller's Defenders hedge fund.

Mueller’s replacement, James B. Comey, carries on the FBI hedge fund tradition

Counting his clerk job during University of Chicago Law School in 1982, Comey has held 15 jobs before becoming FBI director. He changed jobs every two years. Most employers would consider such job hopping a sign of instability, but in government legal circles, that makes you qualified to be FBI director. It appears that he was being groomed. See Bibliography below for a complete timeline of Comey's jobs.

James B. Comey’s  five most recent jobs were:

These disclosures prove that Comey is a card-carrying member of the IBM Eclipse Foundation and the NSA spy state machine.

New investigations into the financial holdings of Robert S. Mueller and James B. Comey reveal astounding conflicts of interest. These relationships  would have stopped any mere mortal from being offered the top law enforcement job.

Lockheed Patent Theft

Comey was general counsel to Lockheed Martin (09/2005-11/2010). This might not be notable except for the fact that Lockheed Martin was and is an active member of IBM’s Eclipse Foundation.

IBM Eclipse has and is exploiting the social networking invention of Columbus innovator, Leader Technologies. As Lockheed General Counsel, Comey was either asleep at the general counsel wheel, or he participated in the theft of Leader’s important invention. In short, Comey aided and abetted the Great Financial Crime in the History of the World.

Lockheed prosecutions for Leader Technologies’ social networking patent property theft have not occurred.

Bridgewater paid Comey $7.2 million in 2012

Comey’s financial disclosure for 2012 declared $7,200,595. That is $600,000 per month. Is any former U.S. Attorney worth such pay? What were they paying for? The likely answer is influence with the future FBI director.

Comey’s Bridgewater pay works out to $3,800 per hour for a 48 week year.  By comparison, $1,000 per hour is generally considered the highest attorney fee. Rates for salaried inside attorneys are generally half that, or less.

Comey also disclosed direct holdings (not counting portfolio holdings in his many mutual funds) in IBM Eclipse Foundation members: Verizon, Intel, Emerson Electric, Microsoft, Qualcomm, AT&T, Apple, HP, Morgan Stanley, Lockheed Martin, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo

These holdings are more proof that Comey carries water for the IBM Eclipse Foundation thieves of social networking and the NSA spy state machine.

HSBC Trafficking

In addition to his $25 million stock portfolio, Comey came to HSBC from Bridgewater with a cool $5+ million in his pocket, with the promise of another $3+ million in "phantom stock" cash-out to come. Does any reasonable person believe he earned this money? Remember, in his 2003 Senate Confirmation Hearing, he declared his net worth at $206,000.

He was HSBC general counsel between Mar. 2013 and Sep. 2013. Seventeen months later, on Feb. 08, 2015, HSBC whistleblower Hervé Falciani tore the lid off of $100 billion in murky offshore private banking being sheltered by HSBC. Like Lockheed, unless Comey was asleep at the wheel as general counsel, he had to know about this misconduct.

The $100 billion in HSBC sheltering was occurring on Comey’s watch as general counsel at HSBC. Yet, no HDBC prosecutions are occurring.

Whenever one sees nested corporate structures so that the real owners are hidden, something nefarious is almost assuredly afoot. Sadly, the FBI, U.S. intelligence and "The Establishment" are scamming the American people through these offshore entities . . . in the name of national security, of course.

The Children of Israel had to make a choice between good and evil

In uncovering these dark secrets of ill-gotten gain, one is reminded of the Children of Israel's temptations surrounding the Golden Calf at Mount Sinai. Rather than uphold their faith and follow the laws of God, many chose to worship a Golden Calf.

American culture is experiencing something similar, as evidenced by the behaviors described in this blog. What will happen to our country if we cannot soon separate the wicked from the righteous?

Golden Calf

    From USA Today

    Massive leak reveals money rings of global leaders

    A massive, anonymous leak of financial documents from a Panamanian law firm has revealed an extensive worldwide network of offshore “shell” companies — including ones with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin — that allow the wealthy to hide their assets from taxes and, in some cases, to launder billions in cash, a German newspaper alleges.The documents, combed through in the past year by hundreds of journalists worldwide, show links to 72 current or former heads of state, including dictators accused of looting their own countries.The data reveal details of secret offshore companies linked to families and associates of Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak, Libya's former leader Muammar Gaddafi and Syria's president Bashar Assad, among others. Also included: Ian Cameron, the late father of British Prime Minister David Cameron. The elder Cameron died in 2010.

    5. Thank you Rain.

      We take note that The Panama Papers contain NO information from the United States. Either American corporations, lawyers and crooks don't have any money in Panama (LOL), or Fusion and ICIJ are saving that release for later, knowing it would have dominated this release.

      Banks associated with the Cartel are identified in the Top 10 users of Panamanian shells:: UBS, Credit Suisse, HSBC.

      Hmmmmm. As this blog post proves, America's top law enforcement officer, James B. Comey, Director of the FBI, was general counsel at HSBC and thus participated in and supported this unscrupulous shadow world economy.

      Bill and Hillary Clinton took $1.35 million in speaking fees from UBS and Credit Suisse.

    Rivero, D. (Apr. 01, 2016). This is the scariest sentence you will ever read about the internet. Fusion.net.

    http://fusion.net/story/287086/this-is-the-scariest-sentence-you-will-ever-read-about-the-internet/

    Comment by a hacker with 30,000 fake Twitter profiles to “shape discussion” around certain topics in favor of his candidate, “priming the social media pump with views that real users would mimic.” (These fake accounts are used for "astroturfing" meaning fake grass roots"

    “When I realized that people believe what the Internet says more than reality, I discovered that I had the power to make people believe almost anything.”

  5. Ruh roh for Comey, Clinton, Obama, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, the Republican and Democratic establishment. Looks like Nevada figures big in these offshore shelters. What Senator from Nevada ran the Senate for most of Obama's reign? Harry Reid. As the Church Lady says, "Isn't that s-p-e-c-i-a-l?"

    Such havens allow corruption and tax avoidance to take place on a massive international scale by some of the richest and most powerful people on Earth. Meanwhile, the poor get poorer.The government will SPY on you to see what you support like tax avoidance or not and will support you on your like but not on your dislike

  10. Just received this email from by Bernie feed. He's getting too uppity for Hillary now.

    From: Jeff Weaver, Campaign Manager, BernieSanders.com
    Subject: NEW LOW

    Message: You MUST see what CNN reported last night. It's very disturbing, and you need to know about it right now.

    "The Clinton campaign has been watching these Wisconsin results come in, and the delegate race of course is tight there, but the reality is they're running out of patience. So they're going to begin deploying a new strategy, it’s going to be called disqualify him, defeat him and then they can unify the party later."

    Disqualify him, defeat him, and unify the party later.
    One more time. This is the Clinton campaign's strategy going forward: Disqualify Bernie, defeat our movement, and pick up the pieces later.

    We have to get ready for the Clinton campaign's attacks. We're on the path to the nomination, and now they're going to try to block it with super PACs, billionaires, and everything else they've got.

  11. Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich
    In 2000, Bill and Hillary Clinton owed millions of dollars in legal debt. Since then, they’ve earned over $130 million. Where did the money come from? Most people assume that the Clintons amassed their wealth through lucrative book deals and high-six figure fees for speaking gigs. Now, Peter Schweizer shows who is really behind those enormous payments.

    In his New York Times bestselling books Extortion and Throw Them All Out, Schweizer detailed patterns of official corruption in Washington that led to congressional resignations and new ethics laws. In Clinton Cash, he follows the Clinton money trail, revealing the connection between their personal fortune, their “close personal friends,” the Clinton Foundation, foreign nations, and some of the highest ranks of government.
    Schweizer reveals the Clinton’s troubling dealings in Kazakhstan, Colombia, Haiti, and other places at the “wild west” fringe of the global economy. In this blockbuster exposé, Schweizer merely presents the troubling facts he’s uncovered. Meticulously researched and scrupulously sourced, filled with headline-making revelations, Clinton Cash raises serious questions of judgment, of possible indebtedness to an array of foreign interests, and ultimately, of fitness for high public office.

  13. Email comment by GH:

    I thought you might be interested in this article:

    Former FBI agents who worked the notorious 1970s sting operation known as ABSCAM have written FBI Director James Comey to warn that nothing less than the bureau's "reputation" is on the line as the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices enters a critical phase.
