by John Judge, 1982

The assets of Jim Jones’ People’s Temple have yet to be fully accounted, but early research in the press and by independent investigators put the total between $26 million and $2 billion. Following the money leads down a twisted trail of international banks, dummy fronts, real estate investments and conflicting government reports. Various sources estimate a total of at least $17-$20 million in foreign investments, and property worth $2.5 million that passed through deed, sale and ownership from 1976 to 1979. Some $12 million dollars was deposited in mysterious accounts in Panama.

During the recent scandal involving the Vatican Bank, Bank Ambrosiana and deceased Italian financier Roberto Calvi, information surfaced indicating that some of the siphoned millions went to Panamanian (more…)

Nugan Hand bank mystery: Michael Hand found living in the United States

One of Australia’s most wanted fugitives, Michael Hand, the co-founder of the Sydney-based international merchant bank Nugan Hand, has been found alive and well and living in small-town America. He vanished in 1980 amid rumours of CIA and organised crime involvement in the bank as the United States attempted to back anti-communist governments and anti-communist insurgents at the height of the Cold War.

By Elias Alias, 2015

This latest version of the selected excerpts from Alfred McCoy’s masterpiece on the CIA’s dope dealing escapades is more complete than previous postings. I have typed in passages from pages 461-472 in Alfred W. McCoy’s bombshell book, “The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity In The Drug Trade“, (1991; first edition 1972.)

At 4:00 a.m. on January 27, 1980, a state police officer patrolling a country road west of Sydney, Australia, noticed a late-model Mercedes sedan parked by the side of the road and stopped to examine it. Inside the constable found the body of a middle-aged male slumped forward, still holding the rifle he had apparently used […] Searching his wallet, the police found personal identification for one Frank Nugan, a merchant banker of Sydney, and a calling card from one William Colby, a New York lawyer who had recently retired as director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.

The circumstances of Nugan’s [death] and the bank’s spectacular collapse only six months later have inspired hundreds of press probes, three major Australian government investigations, and a lengthy (more…)

By John Simkin, 1997 (updated 2014)

In 1973 Frank Nugan, an Australian lawyer, and Michael Hand, a former CIA contract operative, established the Nugan Hand Bank. Another key figure in this venture was Bernie Houghton, who was closely connected to CIA officials, Ted Shackley and Thomas G. Clines.

Nugan ran operations in Sydney whereas Hand established a branch in Hong Kong. This enabled Australian depositors to access a money-laundering facility for illegal transfers of Australian money to Hong Kong. According to Alfred W. McCoy, the “Hand-Houghton partnership led the bank’s international division into new fields – drug finance, arms trading, and support work for CIA covert operations.” Hand (more…)

Project Censored, 2015

An American spy story with more intrigue than James Bond’s best has been unraveling in Australia since 1975 but yet has to grab the attention of our press. While the story is more complex than the proverbial can of worms, it involves:

— CIA involvement in the overthrow of an Australian Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, representative of the Labor Party;

— Pine Gap, a U.S. satellite and communications base in Australia, said to be our single most important installation for monitoring the Soviet Union and Asia’; Prime Minister Whitlam was trying to shut Pine Gap down when he was ousted; (more…)

BCCI (Bank of Commerce and Credit International)

Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. — President James Garfield

It used to be called usury. These days it’s called “charging interest on loans” and is the raison d’être of those ubiquitous institutions, banks. Since the 17th century banks have loaned money to nations and companies as well as to individuals, and accordingly they have been charged with manipulation of national and international affairs. According to the True Conspiracies website the following, among other sins, can be laid at the reinforced doors of “the banks” (punctuation, spelling, capitalization, etc., sic):
– Boom and bust cycles along with the depressions, stock market crashes and wars are deliberately caused to make people lose money to the conspirators. They also weaken the people and tame governments into accepting the conspirators’ solutions. (more…)

A brief background
Shortly after the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, Bolshevik leader Leon Trotsky worked with a group of Polish Bolshevisks, to set up a now-famous Russian foreign-intelligence capability known as “The Trust”. The Trust was a network of financial interests closely associated with the Communist International’s apparatus outside Russia. There is one important feature of The Trust, which must be emphasized to understand the mechanics of this particular Israeli spy-ring. Most of the literature on the subject of the Trust, mistakenly, proposes that the Trust was created after the 1917 Russian Revolution. It is true, that the Trust as such was organized by Polish Bolsheviks, such as Felix Dzerzinskii, working closely with Leon Trotsky, and with the assistance of British spy Sidney Reilly and of the patron of today’s Jon Speller, Commander Sergius Riis. Up to that point, such reports are factually true, but profoundly misleading.
