CIA controlled banks have been involved with money laundering activities.

A Senate staff report has estimated "that $500 billion to $1 trillion in criminal proceeds are laundered through banks worldwide each year, with about half of that amount moved through United States banks."

London Independent reported in 2004 that drug trafficking constitutes "the third biggest global commodity in cash terms after oil and the arms trade."

Washington and the mass media have portrayed the US in the forefront of the struggle against narco trafficking, drug laundering and political corruption.

The truth is exactly the opposite as US banks have developed a highly elaborate set of policies for transferring illicit funds to the US, investing those funds in legitimate businesses or US government bonds to legitimize them.

Congress has held numerous hearings, provided detailed exposés of the illicit practices of the banks, passed several laws and called for stiffer enforcement by any number of public regulators and private bankers.

In the wake of the 2008 economic crisis, analysis found support from the claim of Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime:

"Drug money worth billions of dollars kept the financial system afloat at the height of the global crisis."

"Money from drugs was the only liquid investment capital in the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking system's main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor" - Antonio Maria Costa

Paul Lional Helliwell

Paul Lional Edward Helliwell begins his spook career in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) where he serves under William Donovan.

Helliwell uses CIA fronts to raise money to support Chaing Kai-shek.

May 1965 Helliwell comes up with a novel approach that to this day allows the Disney organization to avoid taxation and environmental regulation as well as maintain immunity from the US Constitution.

It is the same strategy the CIA pursued in foreign countries.

Helliwell advised Disney to establish at least two phantom "cities,” then use these fake governments to control land use and make sure the public monies the theme park generated stayed in private hands.

On paper Disney World "cities" would be regular American home towns - except their only official residents would be the handful of hand-picked Disney loyalists who periodically "elected" the officials who, in turn, ceded complete control to Disney executives.

"Helliwell was immeasurably aided by the Federal Reserve Amendment of 1966, which opportunely allowed US banks to own banks abroad just in time for the accelerated war in Vietnam." - Patricia Goldstone

Helliwell established the Mercantile Bank and Trust Company and then the Castle Bank and Trust Company.

Helliwell also ran the American Bankers Insurance Company based in Galveston, Texas as insurance cover for businessmen who cooperated.

"Psychological warfare is the employment of all moral and physical means other than orthodox military operations to destroy the will and ability of the enemy to resist; deprive him of the support of allies and neutrals; increase in our troops and allies the will to victory." - Paul Helliwell

Helliwell invests Laotian heroin proceeds through Castle Bank in Orlando.

The bank, run by Paul Helliwell, is forced to close after the IRS discovers Castle Bank is laundering CIA funds and drug profits.

1967 "Florida legislature create two "cities,” both named for the artificial reservoirs Disney engineers create by obstructing the area's natural water flow.

When you visit Disney's Magic Kingdom, you are visiting the City of Bay Lake, Florida.

The other was the City of Lake Buena Vista.

In both “cities,” in violation of both the US and Florida Constitutions the engineered legislation established a property qualification for holding elective office, requiring that a candidate for office there "must be the owner, either directly or as a trustee, of real property situated in the City" in order "to be eligible to hold the office of councilman."- TD Allmanm, Finding Florida

How the CIA Helped Disney Conquer Florida

1968 Michele Sindona, "God's Banker" is a top financier for the global mafia, laundering drug profits for the Gambino' and Sicilian counterparts.

He also functions as a financial conduit for numerous black operations, this year passing funds to the Greek colonels before they seize power.

Sindona is paymaster for Propaganda Due (P2), secretive cell in Italian freemasonry, led by Grand Master Licio Gelli, a die-hard Mussolini fascist.

1973 Frank Nugan, an Australian lawyer, and Michael Hand, a former CIA contract operative, established the Nugan Hand Bank.

1976 Nugan-Hand Bank appears to be a CIA front company.

"The Australian bank Nugan Hand Ltd. was run by former CIA and US Military Officers.

It served as a "laundry" for illicit heroin and arms syndicates which it also helped to finance.

The bank collapsed following Nugans death.

The bank's officials were made up of retired U.S. Military and CIA personnel.

Admiral Earl P. Yates, former chief of the Navy's Pacific strategies; General Leroy J. Manor, former chief of staff for the U.S. Pacific command; General Erle Cocke Jr. and General Edwin F. Black; Walter MacDonald, former CIA deputy director; William Colby, former CIA director; and Nugan's co-founder, Michael Hand, a former Green Beret-CIA operative who worked with Oliver North in VIETNAM and LAOS." - CIA, Secret Right-Wing Team, Drugs, Arms Smuggling, & Money laundering Nugan Hand Bank (CBS News), Brigate Democrazia Community, Saturday June 21, 2008, Daily Kos

Bernie Houghton is closely connected to Ted Shackley and Thomas Clines.

Allan Parks claims that Houghton was active in the drug trade in the 1970s.

Clines oversaw the logistics of purchasing weapons from private suppliers in Europe and arranging for their delivery to Central America for Iran-Contra.

September 1990, Clines is convicted of 4 income-tax-related felony charges.
"The person who attracted many of the senior officers to Nugan Hand was a two-star admiral, Earl P. Yates, who agreed to become "president" of Nugan Hand despite the fact that prior to his joining the company his greatest banking experience was likely cashing his retirement checks." - THE NUGAN HAND AFFAIR BANKING ON ESPIONAGE, James Bamford October 18, 1987, Washington Post

"The Nugan Hand Bank of Sydney was a CIA bank.

Among its officers were a network of US generals, admirals and CIA men, including former CIA Director William Colby.

With branches in Saudi Arabia, Europe, Southeast Asia, South America and the U.S., Nugan Hand Bank financed drug trafficking, money laundering and international arms dealings.

In 1980, amidst several mysterious deaths, the bank collapsed, $50 million in debt." - Jonathan Kwitny, The Crimes of Patriots: A True Tale of Dope, Dirty Money and the CIA

The investigative journalist, Jonathan Kwitny, suggests Nugan Hand Bank replaced Castle Bank and Trust Company in Nassau, as CIA covert banker.

Michele Sindona

Banking For God, The Mob And The CIA

1980 Sindona is convicted on 68 counts of fraud, misappropriation of bank funds and perjury.

P2 Bologna train station massacre: 80 people killed and 160 injured.

December 1992US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Terrorism, Narcotics and International Operations pens “The BCCI Affair.”

Disclosed is the largest political corruption case in global economic history.
"BCCI consisted of a complex alliance of intelligence agencies, multinational corporations, weapons dealers, drug traffickers, terrorists, global bankers and high-ranking government officials. It involved leaders from 73 countries and forms “an elaborate corporate spider web." - David DeGraw

"There was constant shortage of money along the pipeline to supply the Mujahedin and so the ISI and CIA began looking for additional sources of income. One that proved viable was drug smuggling. The Pakistan-Afghanistan borderland became the biggest centre for the production of heroin in the world and the single greatest supplier of heroin on American streets, meeting 60 per cent of the US demand for narcotics." - Loretta Napoleoni

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
