– It started with a photograph. Mitt Romney in Cuba with a woman named “Maria XXXXX,” (also known as…Maria Perez, Jane Maria Perez, Jane Mary Swift, Maria Andropolun or Maria Anapolov)_ Cuban mother, Russian father. The year, 1999, a flight to Vera Cruz, then on to Havana.
The source, a top level FBI official managing counter-narcotics in Mexico, along with L3 Communications, gained access to the Romney file held by Mexican intelligence.
INTERVIEW SAMPLE, VOICE ALTERED, ON ROMNEY CUBA TIES (US OFFICIAL)
“PHOTOS AND RECORDINGS”
The information below is the result of years of investigation including two years undercover, inside of one of Mexico’s biggest drug cartels. Files include wire taps, documents, photographs, including documents from Cuban intelligence which include photos and recordings, secured at extreme risk.
Romney, spying for Cuba and Russia, Romney running terrorism in Africa, this is what the FBI, CIA and the files state. Documents outline several meetings between Romney and Castro. FBI officials now indicate that Romney’s travels were done under diplomatic passport supplied by the KGB.
Notes in the “Romney File” indicate the following: Based on the number of trips to Cuba and reports from our intelligence sources there, Romney was considered a top intelligence asset for Cuban and Soviet/Russian intelligence.
His psychopathic and narcissistic personality disorders tied to gambling addiction and obsession with physical security (physical cowardice) made him, not only easy to manage but highly motivated to use his strong ties in Washington to access whatever intelligence his handlers desired. Romney’s “world view” is that he sees himself as a molder of world history, above “ordinary people” and obsessed with power and personal safety.
Nothing here is new to anyone but the public. The media had been approached to run this story.
ABC has it and is sitting on it, the US government has all the documents, only the public has been kept in the dark, kept from one of the larger coverups in the past couple of years.
We have so many, one can’t use the term “major” without risk of overstatement.
The story begins at Harvard and ends in South Africa, drug money, blood diamonds, spying for Cuba and Russia, a story offered to ABC News, a story documented to Sheldon Adelson, the Koch Brothers and Harold Simmons, warning them, a warning they chose to ignore. They were told they were supporting an organized crime figure, told by unimpeachable sources.
Video Largely Confirmed by FBI and CIA
What I was told began at Harvard, Romney was a couple of years behind Carlos Salinas, former president of Mexico, now in exile, whose father established the drug cartels.
While at Harvard, I am told, the two established a “clandestine relationship” to build a money laundering empire, using Panama, Cuba, banks around the world, servicing the network of cartels the Salinas family controlled. Over the years, meetings would occur in Miami, Guatemala and Honduras that we know of, others, we haven’t documented.
This is the official biography of Carlos Salinas, the “sugar coated” version of Romney’s long time associate, one of many of this ilk Bain Capital is the financial arm of all crime “south of the border.”
Carlos Salinas was a Harvard-educated neo-liberal technocrat who became the youngest president in Mexican history. He won the first contested election in years for the notoriously corrupt Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) through massive electoral fraud against his rival Cuauhtemoc Cardenas.
He is best known in Mexico as a disgraced politician, and throughout North America for being the Mexican signatory to NAFTA.
As President of Mexico, Salinas worked to open up Mexico to foreign investment, including the privatization of Mexico’s national banking system (which was sold at below market rate to his political allies). Salinas’s continued work to repeal the social contract resulted in the rebellion of peasants of Chiapas under the Zapatista Army, with whom he later brokered a ceasefire.
After his term as president, Mexico sank into an enormous fiscal crisis due to Salinas’ economic programs, ultimately resulting in a devaluation of the peso by 200%. Salinas attempted to blame the subsequent administration of Ernesto Zedillo for this recession and was so vilified by the Mexican press and people that he was forced to leave the country.
While Salinas was exiled, he wrote a thousand page book explaining exactly why all of Mexico was wrong and he was right which was released to universal horror in his homeland.
One of his brothers was murdered, probably by federal police, and another of his brothers was jailed for murdering a rival politician. His entire family has since been the target of numerous international money laundering investigations.
From the PBS show, “Frontline,” the family tree of the Salinas cartel
Our FBI source says that Bain Capital was established to protect the former front company, Bain & Company.
Operations would be managed from Panama, banking from Switzerland and the Caymans but client meetings would be held in Cuba.
Here, Russian and Cuban intelligence set Romney up with a mistress, “Maria,” who was also his “handler.”
We are told Romney has been in and out of Cuba constantly. Thus, nobody should know Latin America and its value than Romney. He sure knows China well. Now we know he also knows Russia, not just well but “very well.”
Romney has had repeated personal audiences with Castro, we are told. From his profile: “Romney is a compulsive gambler…”
According to our FBI source, top level counter-narcotics, Romney helped run narcotics trafficking through Mexico into the United States. He also continued to work directly with Cuban and Russian intelligence, a relationship they say is “ongoing.”
With this short briefing is a stack of files, communications intercepts, surveillance reports, statements by undercover informants, one of which, an FBI agent, I spoke with for two hours.
When no US Attorney agreed to prosecute, the files and this information were leaked, initially to ABC. They said they were prepared to do a “special” on this “as soon as the election was over.” That was 18 months ago they have had files and met with the agents involved, under full secrecy.
BAIN and AFRICAN TERROR
There is an African end of this story. A CIA agent named “Tony,” working South Africa, part of a team of agents there, all Mormons, contacted a professional associates of mine. (an intelligence agency director)
South Africa is my “turf” also.
“Tony” as he called himself was working with a US law firm and was tasked with investing $120 billion in drug profits, maybe from Afghanistan, in South Africa. He told our representatives he was looking for mining properties worth more than $200 million each.
“Tony” met, not just with us, but with dozens of other groups in South Africa. Tony is, what we call in the spy business, “burned.” Tony’s group works with UNITA, a terrorist organization, sometimes supported by North Korea, Israel, the US and China. The former Angolan revolutionary organization is now “for hire,” and “terrorism on demand” with a reach that covers a dozen nations.
Their task, as South African intelligence indicates, is to buy up South Africa and take over the rest of Southern Africa through running terrorist groups out of the DRC or Democratic Republic of the Congo. On their list is Kenya and other nations.
Their method of operation is to finance themselves with blood diamonds, sent through agents to Tel Aviv, money to be handled by Bain Capital/Romney, then to China where arms are purchased and shipped to terrorists in Africa, “Al Qaeda, Boko Harum and UNITA.
The details of the deal were set up a month ago. Currently, UNITA is having difficulty coming up with their end, the $1.2 billion a year in diamonds they promised.
On the Israeli end, Romney, while traveling there with Las Vegas casino boss, Sheldon Adelson, met with diamond traders at what was supposed to be a/an (illegal) fundraiser.
It was something else, putting together one link in the diamonds, terrorism, money, narcotics trade which, working with Bain, the Bush family, Mormon groups in the CIA and the Mossad, meant to take over all of Africa.
The photo of Romney in Cuba is not as clear as it could be, a copy of a copy was sent. Other documents are in both English and Spanish, volumes.
The “Romney files” came out as a result of current operations through FBI contractors acting in Mexico.
Job Posting Seeks Former Soldiers to Provide Urban Warfare, Counterinsurgency Training
L-3 MPRI, a division of a major U.S. defense contractor, is hunting in the mercenary community to hire “site leads” who can help oversee the company’s personnel in Mexico and also coordinate “with Mexican Army officials” at a dozen training sites, called “VMTCs,” located in Mexico.
Those VMTCs, or Virtual Military Training Centers, provide “high quality training and simulation support,” and the site leads being sought will report directly to the L-3 MPRI’s project manager (or PM) in Mexico City, a job advertisement posted on a L-3 MPRI Web page states.
Critics of U.S. drug war policy have long maintained that the militarism it encourages is, in large part, profit-motivated, with the $1.5 billion Mérida Initiative being held out as evidence of the mercenary nature of the policy.
Under the initiative, the U.S. has agreed to provide the Mexican government with sophisticated military equipment and training to help advance its “fight” against “organized crime and associated violence,” according to the U.S. State Department.
Although it is not clear, at this point, who is funding L-3 MPRI’s training centers in Mexico — whether they are being supported by Mérida money or the Mexican government, or via some other program — what is clear is that the help-wanted advertisement represents important evidence that U.S. private-sector companies have mercenary operations inside Mexico that appear to be providing high-level training to the Mexican military in support, at least in part, of that nation’s prosecution of the drug war.
Some 35,000 Mexicans have been murdered since President Felipe Calderón took office in late 2006 and launched his so-called war on the “drug cartels.”
Good News for Romney
What is particularly good news for the Romney camp is that this information has been in the hands of GOP officials, major news agencies, several US Attorney’s and the intelligence agencies of over a dozen countries for just under two years.
Most top GOP donors were sent copies. None, when questioned as to why they still donated money seemed to care. One from Montana was quoted as saying, “As long as he is a Republican, we don’t care if he is a drug dealer or damned ‘Ruskie’ spy.”
Documents contain names of undercover agents, witnesses, those who put their lives at risk to keep drugs out of the US. Redaction is going on and we will publish what we can.
NAFTA makes much more sense to me now, why the border has been kept open through several presidencies, how we lost much of the nation and our government to drug cash.
Similarly, our policies in Africa now make sense, the terrorism spreading across the continent, and even Webster Tarpley’s statements about the Mormon Mafia that runs the CIA and FBI.
Our associates in South Africa said that those financing terrorism with blood diamonds, those buying everything in sight, are all Mormon, with support of the Heritage Foundation and key Washington law firms.
We have all the names. What we have stumbled on is a systematic effort to destabilize all of Africa and return it to colonialism. It is good to see America doing their part, along with China, Israel and North Korea. Let’s not forget the Saudis also.
SPIES LIKE US
This is the second consecutive GOP candidate with a dossier that accuses them of working for Russia. What are they trying to tell us?
Based on Interview with FBI sources, November 2, 2012:
Subject: George W. Romney, former Governor of Michigan, Secretary of Health and Human Services, candidate for President of the United States.
FBI sources indicate that an investigation of the background of the Romney family indicates they maintained relationships with criminal elements within Mexico after the family returned just prior to World War I.
FBI records indicate that Bain and Company and later Bain Capital received the bulk of its money from inside the Romney family, from George Romney in particular who had direct ties to organized crime.
The Romney family fortune and the career of George W. Romney was financed with funds from Mexico involving criminal enterprises including drug smuggling and human trafficking dating to the 1930s when the official family history lists George Romney as “poverty stricken.”
In fact, George Romney, flush with Mexican cash, went from “jobless” to a top executive position in the auto industry to their chief spokesman during World War II, an amazing turn around.
The Most Lied About Election in American History
It began when the Republican nomination was stolen. Ron Paul won in a landslide. Thus far, 25 grand juries have been seated to deal with felony charges tied to crimes in rigging both the GOP primaries and convention.
Legal groups across the US are, finally, challenging overt the overt corruption of America’s “two party dictatorship.”
Even with a flawed constitution, there is nothing that supports this system, nothing that supports how congress is run and certainly, what constitution we have should have protected us from rule by foreign corporations, more specifically, organized crime packaged as “foreign corporations” that the Supreme Court’s “Citizens United” blasphemy has saddled us with.
Over the past few days, with my delightfully tapped phone (all calls say “US Government” on them), those still working for what is legitimate of that government have been calling. I am told I am the only journalist that isn’t either “brain dead” or “bought” or “scared to death.”
The volume of information held, the types of information, the mass of it, is mind boggling, even for me.
We’re going to touch on a few “pre-publishing” issues simply because time is running out with the election.
What I can say, early on, is that I get sick of finding fault with America. Unlike many, I am not bitter, don’t hate my own country, but I also no longer believe in the American people.
I find that “patriotic Americans” are a brave few, embattled, many inside the government and military still, many were eliminated during the Bush era, some returning under Obama but not enough.
The story we are going to look at today has to be painted with broad strokes. It starts with the Reagan administration but not with Reagan himself.
Those of us who worked for Reagan, and I have a group of friends and coworkers who were his direct advisors or who worked in military and intelligence positions, saw the change.
There were a series of scandals, all “erased by the sands of time,” such as “Iran/Contra” or “BCCI.” All are forgotten. What wasn’t seen was how the CIA was subverted by members of the Executive Branch, we are talking the Vice President, along with key members of the Pentagon and Congress.
America had long been saddled with foreign rule. It began well before 1913 when Woodrow Wilson pushed through the Federal Reserve Act, written on Jekyll Island by a banking cabal, a law meant to enslave America through manufactured economic disasters, war and debt.
Without the Federal Reserve, there would have been no World Wars, the truth goes that far.
This is why we have Mitt Romney instead of Ron Paul. Romney represents the European banking consortium and organized crime. His purpose is to unravel the roadblocks put in place by Obama, few and weak as they are due to our flawed system of “bought” government, and put us back into historical perspective.
This means a world war, more prisons, looted banks, all wealth shipped overseas and the eventual descent of America into third world status, depopulated, deindustrialized and enslaved.
This is what I have been told, what sits in his files, FBI, intelligence agencies, what can be proven, can be shown, what has been presented to every agency chief, every court, the leaders of congress, all have seen the files.
- Romney and friends, turning dollars into ???? – but how, really ??
The story began, “Romney left Bain Capital in 1999 when Cartel head, Raul Salinas, his partner, was sentenced to 50 years in prison. Salinas said, ‘If my story gets out, the governments of the world will tremble.’
Romney was terrified, walked away from Bain’s secret overseas holdings, well over $1 trillion dollars, not the $66 billion claimed, and flew to Cuba to meet his mistress, Maria Perez Andropov (Russian intelligence agent) and for an audience with Castro.
We have records of his flight, photographs from Cuba, we have recordings of conversations there….”
I have hours of these debriefings, in “cloud” storage, now sitting with several intelligence agencies where I have good friends. The story first broke here, proof to a number of agencies that I could be trusted, then the deluge of even more information began.
Let’s get back to this in a bit. We need more background.
Vietnam was “in the rear view mirror” and its lessons. We aren’t talking about real learning, that war is useless, that humans deserve decency and a chance for life and freedom. What Vietnam taught Washington was that “waste is profit” and that the real business of government is narcotics.
What had, since the 1940′s, been the dalliance of a few powerful banking and shipping families, those who later grew fat on the civil war, the “Robber Barons” who became the war profiteers of World War I, they were the beginning.
There were others, this is where the Romney family comes in. Mormon history is largely secret, two wars against the United States, wars over polygamy, over the “Kingdom of Deseret” and its withdrawal from the United States.
The Romney family were citizens of that “kingdom” and had their US citizenship formally withdrawn in 1872 by the Edmunds Act.
They became federal fugitives, fled America and stayed out of the country for 26 years, citizens of Mexico. No “returning” Romney family member was repatriated as an American citizen, all remained Mexican citizens, some returning to Mexico.
During their time there, they formed alliances with ruling families, with bandits, with forces opposed to the United States and its seizure of American land. Mormons who fled to Mexico had become a “5th column” when they returned and remained tied to Mexico.
Thus, when the briefing continued, it didn’t run immediately to Carlos Salinas, the former Mexican President who ran their drug cartels, the Harvard and lifelong companion Mitt Romney, according to “surveillance records,” but to the father.
It was George Romney, the “poor kid” who claims to have nearly starved during the depression who went from “rags to riches” in months during the 1930s, from grocery clerk to running an auto company to eventually, during World War II, managing the entire auto industry.
The tapes say that it was dad, along with drug dealers, gangsters, El Salvador, Mexico, Panama, Columbia, that funded Bain.
It was dad, George Romney, former President of American Motors, former Governor of Michigan, former Secretary of Health and Human Services that had been running a vast multi-national criminal empire.
I had no idea and I had met him. Then came the warning:
“When we tried to explain this, the web of hedge funds, of ‘limited partnerships,’ of railroads, shipping companies, even the largest retail chain in the world, how they were involved, how Mitt Romney is the largest casino operator in the world, all done through layers of partnerships, no one wanted to take on anything this powerful.”
“One of the keys is the Texas Pacific Group, funding 254 companies. Another is GE Capital, originating as a Mexican bank that laundered drug profits, grown into one of the largest companies in America by ‘Jack Welch’ and then destroyed through a ‘pump and dump’ costing American investors billions, crushing many pension funds and impoverishing tens of thousands or more.”
The list of major American corporations, many “giants” was endless. No wonder prosecutors, press and, of course, elected officials were overwhelmed.
Those listed as representing organized crime make up groups responsible for 50% of political donations in the US and this doesn’t count the estimated $4 billion in drug profits brought in through phony front corporation or the money collected during overseas campaign funding drives, trips to Israel and Britain.
Of course, collecting campaign funds overseas is a felony.
According to former DEA agent Phil Jordan, the tidal wave of narcotics flooding the southwest border is an ineluctable product of the NAFTA agreement, which — as the agency predicted in a 1993 intelligence report — has proven to be “a deal made in narco heaven.”
The report, which had been completed before Congress voted on the agreement, described how Mexican-based narcotics cartels had bought up business fronts along the border to exploit the upsurge in uninspected cross-border commerce. In an interview on the May 5th edition of ABC’s Nightline television program, Jordan said that the Clinton Administration told the DEA that the impact of NAFTA “was a subject we could not discuss” prior to the vote in Congress.
The July 30, 1995 New York Times declared that “Mexican traffickers seem to have embraced a vision of North American integration not unlike that with which NAFTA … was sold to skeptics in Washington.” A former U.S. official explained to the Times that “once Bush and Salinas decided to go with NAFTA as the No. 1 goal, then everything else had to be manageable.”
John P. Walters, who inherited the post of “Drug Czar” from William Bennett, made the point even more clearly in a subsequent interview with the Times. “People desperately wanted drugs not to become a complicating factor for NAFTA,” explained Walters. “There was a degree of illicit activity that was just accepted.”
This trade-off has not met with the approval of U.S. law enforcement personnel. Writing in the July/August 1996 issue of Freedom Review, Douglas Payne observed that “U.S. Customs and DEA personnel now openly refer to NAFTA as the ‘North American Drug Trade Agreement,’ while Texas law enforcement officials prefer, ‘North American Free Trafficking Agreement.’”
Fifteen years later, drug enforcement officials, fearful of having their names in print, fearful of not only the cartel but of their own employers, the US government, not only back up Grigg but indicate how much further things have gone:
“NAFTA wasn’t just negotiated by Bush (41) and Salinas and had nothing to do with trade. It was a Romney/Salinas document that was intended only to support drug and human trafficking, money laundering and the deindustrialization of the United States.”
It is expected that anyone criticizing the United States is obligated to point to Fidel Castro as a “godlike figure,” standing for international justice and to see Cuba as a bastion of individual freedom.
Thus, finding that America’s criminal “monied class” moves in and out of Cuba, using it as a “safe haven” for meetings that could be held no place else makes us wonder, how “clean” is Cuba?
“We don’t know when Romney began visiting Cuba but our first encounter with him there was 1999, one of two trips that year, one through Vera Cruz, the second through Toronto. There he met with Maria Perez/Andropov, a Cuban intelligence officer who is his mistress. We know Romney used diplomatic passports for travel and that Perez has traveled in the US under a very unique identity.”
Intercepts of highly classified intelligence from Cuba, confirmed at the highest sources, indicate that Cuban intelligence agent, Maria Perez Andropov, while in the US, used the name of former Massachusetts governor Jane Marie Swift. The terms “cloned” and “stolen identity” were used.
The same intelligence sources confirm that Perez/Andropov, traveling as Jane Marie Smith, accompanied Mitt Romney on more than one occasion, a Cuban intelligence agent, inside the US under false identity.
The other “Swift” became governor when Bush appointed Paul Celluci, then governor, as Ambassador to Canada, April 10, 2001, in an unusual political move to which we choose to attribute no significance.
Swift though not serving in public office, is at the highest decision making levels of the GOP. My questions as to why this identity would be chosen and how it may have been used ended with a refusal to follow up based on a need to protect sources.
Thus, we have so many questions, how many meetings with Castro, we know of more than one, what role does Cuba play other than that of “secure host?” How much money is out there, all those numbered accounts, thousands of them, estimated at well over $1 trillion, all taxable somewhere?
