Barrick Gold and the Canadian Banksters have been vital to the Global Cabals racketeering, war, terrorism and fraud. See an exert from The Millennium Report on how close the media and our financial system are to the CIA, and its blood money operations which span the globe. Source below.
Intelligence Agencies Support the Media CartelWhen we speak of the CIA and intelligence networks we must look to the most effective of all CIA operatives, George Bush Senior, as the proto-type of the CIA president who becomes a major leader of war corporations immediately after his presidency. Bush Senior became a billionaire only a few years after being president. He was a founder of the CIA god laundering operation called Barrick Gold Corporation as well as a director of the Carlyle Group (Halliburton, KBR, etc.). Even during his presidency Bush Senior set up one of the evilest and notorious intelligence groups called the Vulcans. Bush is a neoconservative and a member of almost every corrupt international group that supports the New World Order. Below are some of Bush Seniors intelligence agencies he set up and/or used that were outside of U. S. control.
The Vulcans: They waged war against the Soviet Union and Iraq under George H.W. Bush, and against Iraq and Afghanistan under George W. Bush. Belonging to this group were Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Armitage and Condoleezza Rice.
Diligence, Halliburton and others: The CIA firm’s Diligence, LLC, Dick Cheney’s KBR/Halliburton, and the Russian military intelligence firm Far West are private intelligence agencies that are so powerful they can take down countries and were used extensively by George Bush Senior to do much of his dirty work. Far West has connections to terrorists and has extensive ties to the CIA and is particularly fond of the hawkish neoconservatives the Vulcans and their CIA and Defense Department handlers.
Dick Cheney’s KBR Halliburton (ISGP) shows up everywhere in Eurasia– in the controversial Estonia ferry sinking, which was seemingly also linked to Far West; in business associated with controversial Zionist oligarchs Marc Rich and Frank Timis, and as a partner of the Solntsevskaya-linked Alfa Group.
KBR was also deeply involved in illegally shipping KH-55 cruise missiles to Iran in the months prior to 9/11.
Far West has partnered with the Chechen government and mafia, the Saudis Prince Turki al Faisal, Adnan Khashoggi the notorious arms dealer, the Pakistani ISI, the Uzbekistan dictatorship, the al Qaeda-financing Al Haramain Foundation, jihadist terrorist and Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev, ISI and CIA-sanctioned Taliban terrorist Mullah Abdullo, Al Qaeda’s Ayman al-Zawahiri, the CIA-backed bin Laden-allied Kosovo Liberation Army, and Dagestan and Ossetia-based terrorist groups. Far West leadership also maintained relations with the Mossad, including Shabtai Shavit, head of the Israeli spy agency from 1989 to 1996.
William Webster, founder and advisory board chairman of the CIA intelligence firm Diligence, LLC, is a Far West partner. William Webster was the FBI Director 1978-1987, the CIA director 1989-1991, a member of the CFR, and a consulting partner in Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy since 1991. He was the director of the “private CIA” firm GlobalOptions with former CIA director James Woolsey, former FBI head William Sessions and General Wesley Clark. Vice-chairman Homeland Security Advisory Council 2002-2006 and chairman since 2006.
In 2007 JNR, the firm of Jacob and Nathan Rothschild, appears to have bought a majority stake in Diligence, LLC. Jacob Rothschild was also involved in the Yukos affair. Yukos’ Mikhail Khodorkovsky was the partner of Kissinger and Rothschild in the Open Russia Foundation and automatically handed over Yukos to Rothschild after his arrest. Rothschild employee and 1001 Club member Robert Hartmann has been involved in the BCCI, BNL and Russian IMF money laundering scandals.
Diligence is CIA, along with its closely allied firm GlobalOptions, which has described itself as a “private CIA.” GlobalOptions founder Neil Livingstone and his friend James Woolsey, who could also be found at Booz Allen Hamilton, later created a spin-off of GlobalOptions: the “consultancy” firm Executive Action, LLC, a bizarre reference to the CIA’s term for political assassinations. The company’s ties with the Russian mafia-connected oligarchs are extensive.
Other Intelligence NetworksThe Carlyle Group is an American multinational private equity, alternative asset management and financial services corporation. It is one of the largest private equity and alternative investment firms in the world. At various times it had investments in companies such as Booz Allen Hamilton, Dex Media, Dunkin’ Brands, Freescale Semiconductor, Getty Images, HCR Manor Care, Hertz, Kinder Morgan, Nielsen, Halliburton and United Defense – all of which are War-Corporations.
Carlyle currently operates with more than 1,700 employees across 35 offices in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia. Over the course of two decades, Carlyle has amassed a portfolio of $193 billion in assets under management across 130 funds and 156 fund vehicles and has made investments in more than 200. According to a 2015 ranking called the PEI 300 based on capital raised over the last five years, Carlyle was ranked No. 1 as the largest private equity firm in the world.
Former members of Carlyle include the most corrupt neoconservatives, the Vulcans, the Project for the New American Century, members of the Council on Foreign Affairs, etc.:
Booz Allen helped the Government of the United Arab Emirates create an equivalent of the National Security Agency for that country including training in data mining, web surveillance, and all sorts of digital intelligence collection.
Booz Allen has had trouble with ethics and was complicit in a program (electronic surveillance of SWIFT) that was deemed illegal by the European Commission. There has also been a revolving-door conflict of interest between Booz Allen and the U.S. government, and between multiple other contractors. A United States Department of Homeland Security contract with Booz Allen increased from $2 million to more than $70 million through two no-bid contracts. Anonymous accused Booz Allen of working with HBGary Federal by creating a project for the manipulation of social media. Anonymous also accused Booz Allen of participating in intelligence-gathering and surveillance programs of the U.S. federal government. Edward Snowden — at the time a Booz Allen employee contracted to projects of the National Security Agency (NSA) — publicly disclosed details of classified mass surveillance and data collection programs, including PRISM.
Intelligence is an Integral Part of the War BusinessPRISM is the Planning Tool for Resource Integration, Synchronization, and Management, a clandestine surveillance program under which the NSA collects internet communications from at least nine major US internet companies. The PRISM program collects stored internet communications based on demands made to internet companies such as Google Inc. PRISM began in 2007 in the wake of the passage of the Protect America Act under the Bush Administration. The program is operated under the supervision of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court, or FISC) pursuant to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Documents indicate that PRISM is “the number one source of raw intelligence used for NSA analytic reports”, and it accounts for 91% of the NSA’s internet traffic acquired under FISA section 702 authority.”
As we can see by the descriptions of the private “intelligence” agencies above, intelligence, news suppression and war corporations are all one big family. Corporations now brag about being war-machines that will brainwash the enemy at home or abroad. War is openly sold as big business and the companies are proud of their abilities to effectively control perception management that hides the lies and crimes of anyone who can pay for the services.
Modern day intelligence corporations are new versions of the East India companies and their imperialism. (Please see Addendum for details on the East India company history.) They are the mercenaries used to gather intelligence and carry out war and conflicts in any theatre imaginable. The federal government has used these corporations continuously for decades and a large part of the U. S. defense budget is paid to international companies who pay no taxes and are not truly American in their corporate interests.
Let’s examine a number of other intelligence agencies that are used by the Defense Department to support the war business. We have extracted descriptions of these “intelligence agencies” from their own websites.

Stratfor bills itself as a geopolitical intelligence and consulting firm, with revenues derived from subscriptions to its website and from corporate clients. Stratfor has published a daily intelligence briefing since its inception in 1996. Its rise to prominence occurred with the release of its Kosovo Crisis Center during the 1999 NATO airstrikes over Kosovo, which led to publicity in Time magazine, Texas Monthly, and other publications. Before the end of 1999, however, Stratfor had introduced a subscription service through which it offered the majority of its analyses. At the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Stratfor made its “breaking news” paragraphs, as well as some notable analyses predicting likely actions to be taken by al-Qaeda and the Bush administration, available freely to the public. Stratfor’s publishing business includes written and multimedia analysis and an iPhone application. A monthly publication called Compass was launched in June 2014, adding a third tier to the company’s subscription business model. In a public announcement, the company said Compass is designed specifically for global executives in strategic industries such as energy, trade, finance, and technology. Some of Stratfor’s work remains available free to the public. Barron’s once referred to Stratfor as “The Shadow CIA.”

Halliburton’s (KBR) made $39.5 Billion on the Iraq War. Private or publicly listed firms received at least $138 billion of U.S. taxpayer money for government contracts for services that included providing private security, building infrastructure and feeding the troops. The primary recipient was the Houston-based energy-focused engineering and construction firm KBR, Inc., which was spun off from its parent Halliburton Co. The company was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts over the past decade, with many of the deals given without any bidding from competing firms, such as a $568-million contract renewal in 2010 to provide housing, meals, water and bathroom services to soldiers, a deal that led to a Justice Department lawsuit over alleged kickbacks.

Other nefarious Intelligence Agencies include: Global Options, the Institute of Globalization Studies (IPROG), New Bridge and many others. These agencies are a form of Black Ops government within the U. S. government. Each of the 17 U. S. federal intelligence agencies work with these private intelligence agencies to conduct the international and domestic propaganda warfare that the CIA conducts. Only the CIA has authority outside of American and within the borders of America. Even Homeland Security is trumped by the cry of “International Security Threat” that only the CIA can sound. Thus, all U. S. government policy is screened and approved by the CIA for “International Security Threats.” So no matter whether its foreign or domestic questions, it is the intelligence from the CIA and her private intelligence agencies that rule the day.
One might ask how the CIA got all of this power.
Now let’s look at a few of the CIA banks and their history to see that this is common practice. We only highlight a few of the many CIA banks that have hidden and laundered stolen war gold.
The CIA Banking Network is VastThe Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) was an international bank founded in 1972 by Agha Hasan Abedi, a Pakistani financier. A decade after opening, BCCI had over 400 branches in 78 countries, and assets in excess of US$20 billion, making it the 7th largest private bank in the world. Investigations revealed that it was involved in massive money laundering and other financial crimes, and illegally gained the controlling interest in a major American bank. BCCI became the focus of a massive regulatory battle in 1991, and, on 5 July of that year, customs and bank regulators in seven countries raided and locked down records of its branch offices.
In addition to violations of lending laws, BCCI was also accused of opening accounts or laundering money for figures such as Saddam Hussein, Manuel Noriega, Hussain Mohammad Ershad and Samuel Doe, and for criminal organizations such as the Medellin Cartel and Abu Nidal. Police and intelligence experts nicknamed B.C.C.I. the “Bank of Crooks and Criminals” for its penchant for catering to customers who dealt in arms, drugs and hot money.
William von Raab, a former U.S. Commissioner of Customs, also told the Kerry Committee that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency held “several” accounts at BCCI. According to a 1991 article in Time magazine, the National Security Council also had accounts at BCCI, which were used for a variety of covert operations, including transfers of money and weapons for Iran-Contra.
This is a partial list of the economic and political scandals connected to BCCI: the savings and loan scandal; stock market manipulation and money laundering; Iran-Contra Affair; the October Surprise and Iran hostage crisis; Iraqgate-BNL and the rise and funding of Saddam Hussein; Pakistan’s nuclear program and the selling of bomb-making technology to Libya, Iran and North Korea; the rise and funding of the Afghan Mujahideen (founding and funding of the Taliban and Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda network); illegal weapon sales to Iran and Saudi Arabia; the proliferation of Middle Eastern terrorism; and the international drug trade run by people like Manuel Noriega and Pablo Escobar.
Paul Helliwell would become the primary covert operations banker for U.S. intelligence, setting up in Nassau Castle Bank and then Mercantile Bank and Trust. When Castle Bank needed to be closed, he set up Nugan Hand Bank. When the Nugan Hand Bank closed, he helped shift banking operations to Household Bank in Chicago, Illinois and to the notorious BCCI bank.
International Bank: General George Olmsted was President of a Washington DC based bank holding company known as International Bank, which took over the CIA’s Mercantile Bank and Trust in the Bahamas. Under Olmsted’s leadership, International Bank sold Financial General Bankshares (FGB) then known as First American, to BCCI.
Nugan Hand Bank was an Australian merchant bank that collapsed in 1980 after the suicide of one of its founders, Australian lawyer Francis John Nugan, resulting in a major scandal. News stories suggested that the bank had been involved in illegal activities, including drug smuggling, arranging weapons deals, and providing a front for the United States Central Intelligence Agency. Speculation grew when it became known that the bank had employed a number of retired United States military and intelligence officers, including former CIA director William Colby. In 2000, Brigadier General Erle Cocke, former head of Nugan Hand’s Washington branch, gave a court deposition admitting that he carried out long-term, clandestine banking activities for numerous agencies including the CIA and FBI. Michael Hand’s military colleague and Nugan Hand ‘fixer’, Douglas Sapper, also confirmed that Nugan Hand Bank had been a conduit for CIA money.
Alex. Brown & Sons was the first investment bank in the United States, founded by Alexander Brown in 1800 and based in Baltimore, Maryland. The firm was acquired by Bankers Trust in 1997 to form BT Alex. Brown, and then integrated into Deutsche Bank in 1999 following Deutsche’s acquisition of BT. In 2016, Raymond James acquired Deutsche’s U.S. private client services unit, operating under the Alex. Brown brand.
HSBC: (Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation) was a major recipient of the CIA’s stolen gold and later charged and fined for gold fixing, money laundering and fraud. And, of course, we all now know of FBI James Comey’s association with HSBC!
UBS: (Union Bank of Switzerland) UBS is well known for gold fixing and gold fraud. Adnan Kashoggi, Sheik Kamal and Edgar Bronfmann ran a series of operations which ultimately would evolve into Barrick Gold. Barrick Gold would become an investment for nearly every gold bullion bank associated with the CIA stolen gold. UBS would loan gold to Barrick, which would then sell the borrowed gold as derivatives, with the promise of replacing the borrowed gold with their gold mining operation. The records of many of those transactions disappeared when Enron collapsed and the trading operation and all its records were taken over by UBS, another major recipient of the CIA stolen gold. The FBI was reportedly conducting an investigation into those transactions, and the investigation files were kept on the 23rd floor of the North Tower of the WTC.
Household Finance was taken over by Harris Bank, which was then taken over by the Bank of Montreal. The Bank of Montreal would be controlled by the Bronfmann family, which became heavily invested in Barrick Gold. Other banks that received portions of the stolen CIA gold included Morgan Guaranty Trust, Chase Manhattan, Citibank, Jardine Matheson, and Deutschebank.
Barrick Gold Corporation: George H.W. Bush during the last several days of his presidency sold Barrick rights for a nominal $10,000 to mine deposits ‘valued’ at $10 billion on public domain lands in Nevada. While there was nothing illegal to the arrangement, a special process put in place by President Bush allowed Barrick to use outside specialists to determine the value of the claim, permitting them to control the appraised value of the deposit. Shortly thereafter, George H.W. Bush served on the Advisory Board of Barrick Gold. In the long term, the Barrick operation would create billions of dollars of paper gold by creating ‘gold derivatives’, under the reports that a Nevada claim whose potential was doubted by industry experts had actually produced a fortune. A major distribution channel for the sale of Barrick’s gold futures would be Enron.
