Top Russian law enforcer proposes int’l coalition to fight ‘US dictatorship’ and currency dominance

Top Russian law enforcer proposes int’l coalition to fight ‘US dictatorship’ and currency dominance

The head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Aleksandr Bastrykin, has called for the creation of an international coalition of states to fight the “dictatorship” imposed by the US on the rest of the world, and to reject the use the US dollar as a reserve currency.
Speaking at a roundtable in Moscow, Bastrykin said that the world urgently needed a new system of checks and balances that would allow equal representation of all nations on the international political arena.
He said an alliance of countries was needed which could act in concert as “a feasible pole to counter the dictatorship imposed by the Americans together with their Western allies,” according to the minutes of the roundtable published on the Investigative Committee’s website.
Bastrykin added that America’s current geopolitical dominance is based on its financial might, which in turn can be explained by “the uncontrolled and non-guaranteed” emission of dollars and the “all-enveloping” expansion of the currency. As that’s the case, Bastrykin believes the future coalition of nations should, as a primary measure, ensure the gradual removal of US dollars from their foreign currency reserves, followed by a total refusal to use the dollar as a reserve currency.
It is against common logic to financially support the country that is using these same resources against our interests,” he noted.
The official told the audience that in his view the United States and its allies were waging a “hybrid war” against Russia which included price dumping on energy markets together with “currency wars” in the form of the uncontrolled expansion of the dollar. 
The alternative proposed by Bastrykin includes the integration of the financial systems of various member-nations of the future coalition, including international centers for the accumulation of investment resources and systems allowing cross-border payments in national currencies.
He noted that several international organizations and groups – such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Eurasian Economic Community, the BRICS groups and the Collective Security Treaty Organization – already contained the basic elements of the future alliance.
This is not the first time the head of the Investigative Committee has advocated greater independence and a more prominent international role for his country. In 2015 he proposed that Russia should legally enshrine the primacy of national law over international treaties. He also blamed Boris Yeltsin’s US advisers for including the principle of the superiority of international law over domestic legal procedures in Russian legislation. Bastrykin suggested the steps taken during Yeltsin’s time could be construed as legislative sabotage against Russia.
In this difficult period Russian society is consolidated like never before and most importantly society now understands that the time for constitutional reform is ripe. This is why I believe that gradually, step by step, these ideas will be implemented into life in the interests of our sovereignty and prosperity,” the official stated in an extensive interview with the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily.

Court Overturns Ruling That Kept Obama's 'Fast and Furious' Documents ''Secret''

Court Overturns Ruling That Kept 'Fast and Furious' Documents Secret

Unreleased documents related to a lawsuit over the Obama administration's failed "Fast and Furious" program, which attempted to track guns getting into the clutches of Mexican drug cartels, could be a step closer to becoming public.
The Hill reports a federal appeals court on Friday overturned a lower court ruling that kept the documents from being made public.

While the judgement doesn't guarantee the eight documents will see the light of day, the appeals court ordered the case to be reviewed again.

The government watchdog Judicial Watch had requested the documents under the Freedom of Information Act, but the Obama administration refused to hand over 32 pages, citing a "court-imposed non-disclosure" rule.
"Fast and Furious," which operated from 2009 to 2011, allowed drug cartel straw purchasers to smuggle thousands of weapons across the border into Mexico in an effort to trace where they ended up. 

But a number of the weapons ended up being used in major crimes on both sides of the border and some were linked to the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in the Arizona border city of Nogales in December 2010.

OUTRAGE: Ringleader in Murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry Gets Away with Slap on Wrist

The ringleader of the rip crew that murdered U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010 received a slap on the wrist thanks to federal prosecutors in Arizona. The prosecutors asked that he only receive a 30 year prison sentence instead of a possible life term in prison or a possible death sentence.

Brian Terry, a member of an elite tactical unit, was killed on December 14, 2010, in a fierce firefight with a rip crew of gunmen who had been trying to rob Mexican drug traffickers. In the aftermath of the shootout authorities learned that some of the weapons used to kill Agent Terry were part of the infamous Fast and Furious operation. Under this operation the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was allowing Mexican cartel members to purchase weapons in order to trace them to their source. Instead the agency lost thousands of weapons that fell into the hands of the Sinaloa Cartel.
According to court records obtained by Breitbart Texas, federal prosecutors asked that all of the charges against Rosario Rafael “El Pariente” Burboa Alvarez be dismissed except for one and that the sentence be 360 months in prison with credit given for time served. The story was initially reported by KVOA’s Michel Marizco and Lupita Murillo.
Burboa was described as a recruiter who hired out rip crews to rob Mexican cartel smugglers and paid them once the robbery was done.
The sentence was taken with great insult by the National Border Patrol Council which is the union that represents border patrol agents.
“Sickening this happened at all, but just another slap in the face that it was announced on Brian Terry’s Birthday,” NBPC said in a statement. “Honor First Brian. Your government many not seek the justice that you deserve, but your brothers and sisters in green will always remember.”
Brian Terry’s brother, Kent Terry, has been outspoken on the role of Eric Holder, the Department of Justice and the ATF in Brian’s death and the ongoing attempts to cover up information relating to this case and Fast and Furious. Responding to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas’ Bob Price, Kent Terry said, “Bob, it saddens me that the DOJ would even make a plea deal with a man that wasn’t even there that night. What information did he give..?”
“So now he will serve 27 years of a 30 year sentence, allowing for time already served, and we can’t even get answers for why these guns where put there to begin with..sad!” the surviving brother said.
Price has been writing about the murder of Agent Terry starting on the day Terry died in 2010.
According to KVOA, “Burboa’s 30 year sentence is in line with the sentence handed to Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, the man wounded during the firefight. Osorio-Arellanes faced life but was ultimately sentenced to 30 years in 2012. Jaime Avila, Jr., the Operation Fast and Furious gun buyer who purchased the two AK-47s found at the murder scene was also sentenced in 2012. He received a 57 month sentence.”
Speaking on his brother’s birthday in a Facebook post, Kent Terry said, “Happy 45th birthday to my Brother in Heaven. To those that don’t know Brian, he’s a Marine, law enforcement here in Michigan for Ecorse and Lincoln Park.”
“But that wasn’t good enough,” Kent Terry continued, “so he joined the Border Patrol and then there tactical unit known as BORTAC. Brian lost his life in the line of duty by an Illegal alien armed with guns from the FAST&FURIOUS scandal by this government administration and ATF, etc.. Brian you are missed brother..your on my mind 24/7 always! Love you and miss ya B!! God bless a American Hero!”

Pearson Education is a company that designs “education products and services to institutions, governments and direct to individual learners”. They have 40,000 employees in 80 countries. “Pearson is listed on the London and New York stock exchanges (LSE: PSON; NYSE: PSO). In fact, Pearson is one of the few companies to have been a constituent of the FTSE100 ever since the index began in 1984. However, though the name has remained the same the company behind it has changed beyond all recognition”.
The three main changes the company cites are as follows: (
  1. “A corporate focus on ‘education in the broadest sense of the word’, a strategy of becoming the world’s leading learning company with heavy exposure to the growing global education market.”
  2. “A transformation from book publisher to digital services company.”
  3. “A significant expansion into fast-growing developing economies including China, India, Africa and Brazil.”
Pearson is a former member of the Advisory Council for the United Nations Global Compact. They continue to be a member. “Participation in the Global Compact continues to provide an important framework for Pearson as we develop and grow, and are pleased to continue our support and engagement,” Robin Freestone Chief financial officer (and Board member responsible for corporate responsibility)
Remember, the Gates Foundation also used the United Nations as one vehicle for funding the development and implementation of Common Core in the United States.
Pearson appears to have a number of investors worldwide with one of the largest financial contributors being the Libyan Investment Authority that holds 26 million shares. According to the Financial Times of London, the Libyan Investment Authority was founded by Libyan dictator Muammer Gaddafi’s son Seif al-Islam with shares now belonging to more than five members of the Gaddafi family. In the Middle East; Turkey, Saudi Arabia, CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood have invested heavily in Pearson Education.
Pearson Education claims they are a public company in a free market and they have no control over their shareholders. In other words, they didn’t mean to fund terrorist activities.
“Muslim Brotherhood documents seized by the FBI and presented at the Holy Land Foundation Trial in Texas revealed a plan by the Muslim Brotherhood and their subsidiary organizations like CAIR to penetrate and indoctrinate American K-12 students.”
These documents were believed to be the Muslim Brotherhood’s manifesto in North America. You can view the documents from the Holy Land Foundation Trials by visiting the following links: (Note: the documents are provided in Arabic and English. You will need to scroll down the document to get to the English translation.)
In May 2014, Pearson Education took over teacher certification in New York State, because the state had to implement “reforms” to compete for federal ‘Race to the Top’ dollars. The evaluation system known as the Teacher Performance assessment (TPA) will be solely administered by Pearson Education. New York State teachers will be entirely evaluated by Pearson Education.
University programs for teacher training are being subsidized by Saudi Arabia. Middle East Studies (under Title VI of the Higher Education Act) which entails designing lesson plans and seminars on the Middle East for American K-12 teachers are being distributed without oversight despite federal funding by the United States government. Saudi Arabia is funding the foundation creating the materials and training of the teachers and coordinators of these programs.
Pearson Education did not miss a chance to be a part of this exciting training, because there were higher education dollars up for grabs. You can view their website specifically designed for Middle Eastern studies at the following link:
Pearson Education is involved in academic research and influencing governmental policy. Pearson Education along with Cisco Systems, IBM, Intel, and the Gates Foundation throw all kinds of money at “non-profit” organizations in an attempt to effect policies that will lead to profits for their companies. Common Core was designed and copyrighted by The National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). You find Pearson Education listed as one of the many donors to NGA. Pearson Education is also listed as a business and industry partner for CCSSO.
The U.S. spends more than $632 billion a year to educate children ages five to 18 (approximately $12,608 per student). Education, including college and mid-career training, represents nearly 9 percent of U.S. gross domestic product. That is more money than is spent on energy or technology.
Pearson Education may claim they have no control over whether their stock is funding terrorist activities, but consumers and the United States government can control whether they purchase Pearson Education materials. We exercise our consumer rights in a free market all of the time.
Parents have rights too. The following was written by an Ohio teacher, “Refusing to allow your child to participant in state testing is a parental right guaranteed by the 14th amendment and broadly protected by the Supreme Court (see Meyer and Pierce cases). The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that parents possess the “fundamental right” to “direct the upbringing and education of their children.” Furthermore, the Court declared that “the child is not the mere creature of the State: those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right coupled with the high duty to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations” (Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U.S. 510, 534-35). The Supreme Court criticized a state legislature for trying to interfere “with the power of parents to control the education of their own” (Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390, 402.). In Meyer, the Supreme Court held that the right of parents to raise their children free from unreasonable state interferences is one of the unwritten “liberties” protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment (262 U.S. 399).”
You can use your voice as a parent and refuse to allow your child to be used as a tool for funding terrorist activities. Pearson Education may not be the only unwitting player.

US Gives China Eminent
Domain Over US Property
Beyond High Treason

A. True Ott, PhD, ND
Let's connect some dots today, boys and girls to learn about the HIGHEST POSSIBLE TREASON that has happened in this country.
Dot #1 China begins its covert war on the FREE American republic in the 1950's by taking over much of the PHARMACEUTICAL DRUG manufacturing for American and British Big Pharma. This is an outgrowth of the Rothschild's OPIUM RING PROCESSING by the British West Indies company during the 1800's, and is brokered by the "City of London" and Washington D.C.
Dot #2 Arch-illuminist and satanist Henry Kissinger "normalizes" trade relations with China during the Nixon years.
Dot #3 Eventual LDS (Mormon) Church President Gordon B. Hinckley, via the church-owned Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii, establishes a "hard currency" pipeline with Bejing, exchanging bank "trade credits" for CIA/BRITISH MI6 DRUG SERVICES RENDERED into hard GOLD AND SILVER while hiding behind the cloak of "World Religion". This is facilitated via the LDS-Church built and controlled "Shenzhen Special Economic Zone" adjacent to Hong Kong. When Hinckley is made LDS President, his first "official" visit as "World Prophet" is to China, where the Chinese Communist leaders give him a hero's welcome and a confetti parade. (See attached paper --- "Pensees of a Puzzled Pilgrim" pp 5-6 and Desert News, June 1, 1996 article: "President Hinckley Visits China").
Dot #4 Arkansas natives Bill Clinton and Sam Walton massively increase contracts with China's factories over 2,000%. This results in a tremendous imbalance of trade with China. Thanks to the Mormon "Special Economic Zone" -- China's communist leaders begin amassing incredible "real" wealth in gold and silver.
Dot #5 China purchases TRILLIONS of dollars worth of U.S. Treasury Bills and Bonds, paying for it with gold and silver provided by the Shenzhen Economic Zone exchanges. Much of the U.S. "national debt" is purchased from the private "Federal Reserve" banks in this manner.
Dot #6 Dr. Jeff Taubenberger of the U.S. Institute of Pathology in Ft. Dedrick MD, (The world headquarters for biologic weapons development) successfully maps the genome of the 1918 killer "flu" virus responsible for the 1918 "pandemic" that killed millions.
The worst killer virus ever to plague mankind is now ready to be used as a covert "weapon" disguised as a natural "influenza" mutations.
Dot #6 July, 2005: The Illuminati-conrolled United Nations announces that the world is long over-due for an "influenza pandemic". The H5N1 "Avian Flu" is wrongfully demonized as a COVER.
Dot #7 December 2005: The Chinese Defense Minister, Chi Haotiaon delivers a speech to the Chinese military leaders outlining the inevitable "expansion" of China into Canada, the U.S., and Australia -- He justifies this because of Chinese racial "superiority" and thus "emminent domain". To accomplish this, American would first have to be "Cleansed" by means of a powerful "biological weapon" --- causing 150 -200 MILLION AMERICAN DEATHS!!! The plan would be enacted AFTER the symbolic OLYMPIC GAMES beginning at the sacred day of 8-08-08 are concluded. China begins buying oil and gas futures, spiking the worldwide prices to historic levels.
Dot #8 March 13, 2008: A secret meeting is conducted for the U.S. House and Senate. Agents of the Club of Rome give a preview of upcoming events to elected officials who first swear an oath of secrecy. The traitors are briefed that the economy will begin its collapse in October, 2008 -- and will TOTALLY collapse in mid 2009. As events unfold in 2009-2010, Congress was told of the real possibily of massive civil unrest and even Civil War being waged. Detention camps constructed to imprison civil 'agitators'. See
for the complete meeting agenda.
Dot #9 In September, 2008 -- as soon as the Olympics are concluded, China stops buying oil and gas futures while dumping U.S. Treasury bills and bonds. Gasoline prices plummet, while the U.S. mortgage loan money becomes tightly constricted. The Club of Rome's agenda is being implemented perfectly.
Dot #10 In October, just as explained in March, the economy indeed begins its collapse with mortgage banks going bankrupt as the Chinese dump their U.S. Securities. This causes a world-wide "rush to liquidity" as money supplies DRASTICALLY tighten.
Dot #11 Billions of worthless U.S. Government "bailout" debit entries are given to bolster failing U.S. Banks. These are "worthless" because China now controls most of the U.S. "REAL" wealth in the form of gold and silver. China refuses to continue investing credit loans to the U.S. Treasury.
Dot #12 Barack Hussein Obama is elected, promising "Change you can believe in." After taking office in January, Obama sends Hillary Clinton on a critical mission to China and helps write H.R. 45 -- a complete grab of America's guns ala Adolph Hitler. State leaders who understand what Clinton and Obama agenda with China is about, are seeking legal "Sovereignty" to prevent the loss of property to a foreign power.
Dot #13 China agrees to continue investing in U.S. Treasury Bills only after securing the right of "eminent domain" to physically repossess foreclosed American PRIVATE PROPERTY. This move is the equivalent of an unconditional surrender following a bloody war.
This also gives the Chinese military the LEGAL RIGHT to use biological weaponry to "Clean up America all at once". It gives them the legal right to use deadly force in removing trespassing Americans from occupying Chinese real estate.
Connect these 13 evil dots, and this is what you get:
BEIJING, China -- Sources at the United States Embassy in Beijing China have just CONFIRMED that the United States of America has tendered to China a written agreement which grants to the People's Republic of China, an option to exercise Eminent Domain within the USA, as collateral for China's continued purchase of US Treasury Notes and existing US Currency reserves.
The written agreement was brought to Beijing by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and was formalized and agreed-to during her recent trip to China.
This means that in the event the US Government defaults on its financial obligations to China, the Communist Government of China would be permitted to physically take -- inside the USA -- land, buildings, factories, perhaps even entire cities - to satisfy the financial obligations of the US government.
Put simply, the feds have now actually mortgaged the physical land and property of all citizens and businesses in the United States. They have given to a foreign power, their Constitutional power to "take" all of our property, as actual collateral for continued Chinese funding of US deficit spending and the continued carrying of US national debt.
This is an unimaginable betrayal of every man, woman and child in the USA. An outrage worthy of violent overthrow.
-------------- UPDATE 1:40 pm EST
Eminent Domain is the power of government to TAKE private property for public use without the consent of the property owner. Under our Constitution, the government can only "take" when providing "just compensation" for what they've taken.
Who decides what constitutes "just compensation?" The government!
Homeowners who felt the government was not paying them enough for property in past "takings" have filed lawsuits. In absolutely every such case, the value placed upon the property by the government was upheld by the courts.
Our federal government has now granted to China, this power to "take"our homes and businesses in the event the US Gov't defaults on its debts. Let's play this out as a worst case scenario. . . .
The US Gov't goes belly-up and China comes in and says, "they owed us $2 Trillion in Treasury Notes and another $2 Trillion in actual cash money which is now worthless. We are taking the entire state of Hawaii and the entire state of California in lieu of this bad debt. "
With the stroke of a Chinese chop stick, Hawaii and California -- all the land and buildings in those states -- are now owned by China.
The "taking" would be a "valid public use" because it was "taken" in payment of the public debt!!!!
China could then turn around and declare the value of all that land to be worth. . . . . I dunno, ten cents on a dollar?
For your $200,000 house, you get a Chinese check for $20,000.
Needless to say, the property owners would go ballistic and demand "just compensation" for what was taken. Who gets to decide what is "just?" China! Don't think you got a fair price for what they took? No problem, sue China.
You'll lose.
People who live in those states and own their land outright, might be able to negotiate with China to "rent" back their own property, as long as the property owner continued to pay all his taxes; but the land and buildings would belong to China.
This is what our own Government has just done to us and it is the single most vile act of betrayal in the history of human existence.
------------- SECOND UPDATE 3:48 PM
In early February nine U.S. States began the process of re- asserting their Sovereignty pursuant to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the US Constitution; declaring null and void any actions by Congress that violated the Constitution.
The states took action to make certain the feds couldn't give away cities or the states themselves!
This situation is going to get VERY ugly, VERY fast as one sovereign power (the feds) try to literally give away the land of other sovereign powers, (the states). This is the type of thing that starts Civil War.
Our present federal government makes the treachery and betrayal of Benedict Arnold look like child's play.

Senator Harry Reid’s involvement with Cliven Bundy’s ranch and the Nevada BLM land scam

An American Oligarch: Senator Harry Reid’s BLM Land Scams, Bribes, Mafia Links and Bloodlines

Shawn Helton
21st Century Wire
This is way more than a grievance about unpaid ‘grazing fees’, as Senator Harry Reid’s involvement with BLM is evidence of how Agenda 21-led policies are rapidly seeping out of the Capitol Hill swamp.
Liberal oriented media, along with their neo-conservative counterparts on the right, are once again reading from the same page and conveniently over concerned with Cliven Bundy’s alleged ‘racist’ comments than they are about Americans’ having the ability to retain their inherent constitutional rights as a whole.
The ‘race storm’ media buzz turned out to be a well-crafted hoax, engineered by left-wing Media Matters and the New York Times, and a deliberate attempt to divert the public’s attention away from the obvious federal government despotism on display two weeks ago in Bunkerville, Nevada – the latest federal power grab in a frightening trend which is presently overrunning the United States today.

Nevada and the BLM land scam
Former Nevada Gaming Comissioner, now Democratic Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, appears to have made a lucrative career out of ‘gaming’ the political system, seemingly for his own personal gain. His role in the siege at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada, has only started to unfold, revealing highly questionable connections to the Chinese energy corporation ENN, through its Nevada counterpart ENN Mojave Energy. The land deal was reportedly a steal for Chinese business investors, who were set to receive a sweetheart deal of 87 percent discount for the shadowy land purchase.
Reid has also maintained a longstanding history with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Nevada, a corporate division of the US Department of Interior. The BLM oversees public land acting as a manager for the United States government and Reid and his crony associates have been caught distorting laws for development projects across the state of Nevada for many years, abusing environmental protection clauses to ‘fast track’ unsavory land deals. Reid worked behind the scenes with BLM to change the boundaries of the desert tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the planned development of a top financial donor, Harvey Whittemore.
Attorney Jonathan Emmord explains, “The desert tortoise is only a justification against development of those who are not politically connected to Reid. Whittemore gave Reid and Reid’s Political Action Committee $45,000. If Cliven Bundy were a Reid financial backer, his fate might well be different, but he is not. Bundy opposes Reid.”

For self-appointed oligarchs, it’s always important to keep the money in the family, and if one member of the family controls the political strings, then it’s a fairly straight forward operation. Harry Reid, the highest ranking Democratic Senator, is said to have been busy brokering a $5 Billion dollar deal to secure a solar farm site in Laughlin, Nevada – through his son Rory Reid, a shareholder and attorney at Lionel Sawyer & Collins, heading the law firm’s Gaming and Regulatory Law Department. Emmord adds here:
Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project.”
Chinese magnate Wang Yusuo, with an estimated net worth of $2.2 billion, owns ENN Group. In 2011 Reid ventured to ENN’s headquarters in Langfang, China, to tour the company and then worked to get this enormous company favored by the Chinese Communist government to take on development of a massive solar energy project in southern Nevada that would endeavor to supply California with 30% of its energy needs. Wang spoke at Reid’s Fourth Annual National Clean Energy Summit last year.”
This cozy little set-up violates all fundamental ethics regarding an elected official’s conflict of interest code, but these days in Washington DC, guilt-free corruption has become the norm, as Senators spend most their quality time lining theirs and their family’s pockets while in office – with the US taxpayer covering all of their ‘business overheads’.

Partners in crime
Harvey Whittemore
, was a senior managing partner at Rory Reid’s law firm, Lionel Sawyer & Collins, and was once the firm’s top lobbyist. A close friend of Harry Reid, he was convicted on three out of four felony charges and sentenced to two years in jail for contributing nearly $150,000 in illegal funds to Senator Reid’s re-election committee in 2007. In May of 2013, a federal jury found Whittemore – a close friend of Reid’s, guilty of the charges levied against him and he was ordered to pay $100,000 dollars in fines and is set to serve time behind bars. Incredibly, but like so many scandals of this sort, Senator Reid managed to brush off his part in the corruption scandal, most likely with the help of ‘friends’ in high places – like the White House.
Another solar farm company Brightsource Energy was slated to benefit greatly from the Whittemore Coyote Springs development and all the perks that came with the federal land easement. The land was leased to Brightsource from Whittemore’s company and was considered a fast track land deal and federal money received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment act (ARRA) that was granted to Nevada via a government stimulus. Harry Reid reportedly received more money from alternative energy for his campaign than any other lawmaker.
In 2003, Whittemore is said to have sold company interests in the Wingfield Nevada Group and its affiliate LLC, Coyote Springs Investment to Thomas Seeno and his brother, Alberto Seeno, both development corporations were linked to a $30 billion dollar land deal on 43,000 acres just North of Las Vegas. The Seenos’ a 70-year Nevada family dynasty, with alleged ties to organized crime, became the subject of a federal investigation by several agencies in 2010, for a number crimes including tax debt, extortion and fraud.
The corruption in this story leads right up to Washington DC. In 2007, the Seeno family reportedly contributed $38,800 dollars to Harry Reid’s re-election bid. Congress moved for ‘Federal easement’ in 2004, accepting Whittemore’s $10.4 million dollars penance payment in the process while pushing the Coyote Spring’s project forward. Whittemore’s Coyote Springs company and the Bureau of Land Management was subsequently sued by two public lands issue groups over what was said to be an illegal land swap in 2006. Senator Reid has been said to have helped facilitate Whittemore’s corrupt Coyote Springs development project by procuring the necessary ‘environmental waivers’.
In 1998, Whittemore paid a defense contractor named Aerojet-General Corp $15 million for the title of the privately owned land for the Coyote Springs site. He also managed to negotiated for the same “rent-free government lease of the tortoise habitat” for his new friends. Whittemore was said to have pushed for an “unrestricted use” of the tortoise habitat within the project area.
The law clearly wouldn’t allow a ‘boundary adjustment’ of 10,000 acres,” said Janine Blaeloch of the Western Lands Project, a group that advocates for public lands. “Congress drew the map of the leased lands. Congress would have to change it.” – (LA Times)
The suit against BLM and Coyote Springs was upheld by Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, who was a District Judge in 2007 prior to defeating Rory Reid in the race for Governor in 2010. Sandoval has seemingly been engineered for a future Vice Presidential slot. Interestingly, he’s also said to be one of the few GOP Governor’s in the United States that is actively implementing Obamacare much to the chagrin of those on the right and those for individual sovereignty on that issue.
Nevada: America’s Most Politically Corrupt State
The Governor of Nevada was also named in a court case involving the Employer’s Insurance Company of Nevada (EICON) while he was Attorney General, accusing Sandoval of taking part in or at least turning a blind eye to a multi-billion dollar transfer of funds over the last decade involving the insurance company – when it should have been put in a Trust held at the Nevada State Treasury.
While Sandoval has initially come out in support of  the Bundy’s during their standoff with the BLM and stifled some controversial land deals during his time as a District Judge, though it should be noted that his interests in these events should be held under scrutiny. In the political den of corruption that is Nevada, public officials spend a great deal of time and effort reinventing their public image in order to ready themselves for their next step up the political latter, as the political machine in Nevada feeds directly into the Washington DC machine.
In 2010, Utah Attorney General John Swallow was also implicated, apparently helping to engineer what has been described as a ‘bribe’ between a well-known Utah businessman Jeremy Johnson, and of course… Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
A lawsuit filed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) led to an investigation into Johnson due to credit charges and for allegedly misrepresenting products that were sold through a company called I Works and its shadowy collection of ‘shell’ companies. It has been said that Johnson’s company took in around $350 million dollars between 2006 – 2010. Even though it appears as though his business practices were unsavory, he contends he was made to believe he could pay Harry Reid $600,000 dollars to make the federal investigation into his company ‘disappear’. Once again, and somehow – the scandal doesn’t stick to Dirty Harry.
Rigging the Game
There have been other alleged connections to organized crime for Senator Reid, perhaps most notably through Attorney Jay Brown, a lawyer with his feet close to the casino mob fire, and a longtime family and business associate of Reid’s. Brown has been the subject of numerous investigations over the years and in 1981 settled a federal securities case out of court. 
In the late 1990’s Reid apparently bought two plots land in Nevada, one outright and the other with Jay Brown and in 2001, Reid sold it to a company created by Brown for an equal share in the company. Reid never disclosed this sale to Congress, and in the process the land was still listed as an asset. Reid reportedly collected $1.1 million in the process. Reid’s name was never formally attached to Brown’s company, however in 2006, he  filed a correction to his ethics form for a ‘better representation’ of the land deal that took place. Again, the scandal somehow slides off the back of Senator Reid.
It appears that BLM, Senator Reid, as well as a host of shadowy casino characters and corrupt lawyers – have gamed the system when it comes to Nevada and Utah land deals, operating a golden circle of business seemingly outside of anything that would be considered ethical, or evenlegal for that matter.

More BLM Land Grabs Taking Place
Unabashed and with the blessing of President Obama, the BLM are reportedly ready to grab another 90,000 acres of privately owned land in Texas after being turned away at the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada.
Some have suggested the Bundy’s may have ‘prescriptive rights’ as to where their cattle can graze, as reported by Ben Swann:
Montana cattle rancher Todd Devlin says the BLM is now considering new ways of dealing with the Cliven Bundy situation. Devlin, is not just a Montana cattle rancher, but is also a County Commissioner in Prairie County Montana and he has worked with the Department of Interior, having taught workshops for the agency in the past. Monday, Devlin reached out to his contacts in the Department of the Interior to find out why the Bureau of Land Management has refused to work with Bundy rather than simply attempting to run over him.” 
Delvin posed the question about the possibility of prescriptive rights being used in the Bundy Ranch case:
“Is it possible that this guy (Cliven Bundy) has prescriptive rights?” The response from top officials at the BLM, “We are worried that he might, and he might use that defense.”
Prescriptive Rights legally allow anyone who qualifies the right to use land, if a person or persons have been using that land for at least 5 years without legal action taken by the property owner, as outlined by Ben Swann:
Because Bundy stopped paying his grazing fees to the BLM in 1993 but continued to use the land for over 20 years, it is possible he now has prescriptive rights to the land.”

However, some have suggested this event has been a staged provocation between two historically powerful families (Bundy & Reid) meant to gauge public reaction and potentially propel the patriot movement into dissolution. There is nothing concrete to support this claim and it could be seen as a diversion. (photo credit

In addition to Reid’s BLM connections, there has been other disturbing news out of Nevada, implicating Special Agent in Charge of BLM, Daniel P Love and his alleged interest in the BLM siege at the Bundy Ranch, lying to the public about the BLM’s illegal killing of cattle, as well as his unconstitutional stance against the Bundy Family, its property, residents and supporters. This has been covered extensively by Pete Santilli and his GMN team through various audio conversations and people close to the situation in Bunkerville. This is a side of the story that will undoubtedly continue to develop in weeks to come.

The Reid family bloodline
When discussing political and financial dynasties in America, it’s important to understand the power structure behind many family names, as it allows one to glean an overall picture of power and control that often stretches beyond US shores and throughout the world. 
The Reid family bloodline is certainly no exception, and it’s interesting to note that Harry Reid has been aided throughout his political career by carefully utilizing the ‘rags to riches’ narrative regarding his upbringing. While he may have been brought up from humble beginnings, his family name is nonetheless deeply entrenched with that of the Rockefeller’s and elite society as a whole.
The New York Herald Tribune was owned by the Reid family, and several of their family members have been linked to the powerful secretive group called ‘The Pilgrims Society’. Notable family members include Whitelaw-ReidOgden Rodgers-Reid and Ogden Mills-Reid – all publishers and journalists of the well-known American media giant.
The Pilgrims Society has been considered by some as the transatlantic steering body which allow British elites and members of the Royal Family to direct developments in American politics and society, with a list of elite American and British members and patrons – and a membership strictly kept to white Anglo-Saxon protestants. It’s believed to be the backdoor by which European elites are able to wield an undo influence over American affairs.
In understanding some of the deep roots of American hereditary power, another connection that cannot be overlooked, are Pilgrims Society members, the Gould family, as they’ve seemingly played a role in supporting Reid Family enterprises through financial means, and consolidating family power through intermarriage. Throughout history and until today, we’ve seen this kind of family monopoly strategy in the US and Europe, as certain well-to-do families have married into one another. This could vary well be the case in Senator Harry Reid’s life as well, with his marriage to wife Landra Gould
Not surprisingly, many Pilgrims members are in support of the United Nation’s sustainability projects and have undoubtedly played a role in the creation of the UN’s Agenda 21 sustainable land reform edict. No surprise then that both Edmund de Rothschild and David Rockefellerwere listed as notable members of the Pilgrims Society – and during the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 they made their end-run push for the adoption of Agenda 21. The Pilgrims are also said to have heavily infiltrated the Council on Foreign Relations, and other clandestine steering committees and think-tanks.
The Pilgrims Society has also managed to gain influence and control over a chunk of the media operations in the United States and are said to have even had a hand in implementing the CIA’s notorious domestic propaganda program known as Operation Mockingbird through powerful Pilgrims-run media outlets like the New York Times and Time Magazine.
This secretive group has also been linked to the planned 1934 false flag coup on PresidentFranklin D. Roosevelt through the American Liberty League, reportedly backed  by many notable wealthy bankersThis concept was partially echoed in the John Frankenheimer feature film, Seven days of May, made in 1964depicting a secretive plot to overthrow the president. Well respected stalwart and United States Marine Corps major general Smedley Butler alerted a congressional committee about a  fascist scheme that was dubbed the Business Plot allegedly to overthrow Roosevelt.

As American dynasties go, so do their European counterparts, and the two even intermarry occasionally.
In the case of Reid Family Dynasty, an apparent stronghold has been developed in the state of Nevada, but could be in jeopardy should the Senator and his son’s shady influence pedaling and under the table dealing be given a proper investigation.
It’s safe to say the regular Americans would all be in agreement about just how dirty and corrupt political life has become in Washington DC, and that the insider trading culture is now a clear and present danger – and now poses a direct threat, to the integrity of the US Constitutional Republic.
