Monday 11 June 2007 01:35

We are not commenting immediately on developments associated with and following the Group of Eight meeting in Germany, the continued extreme crisis surrounding the stealing of The Queen’s gold, and the heightened global tension that bedevils all pertinent international relationships at this time, arising directly from the proliferating Wantagate scandal.

We cannot comment constructively on a fast-moving situation, but it may be taken for granted that when we are able to do so, we will report accordingly. The foregoing statements should not be construed as implying ANYTHING AT ALL, other than the meaning of the words contained therein.

By Christopher Story FRSA, Editor and Publisher, International Currency Review, World Reports Limited, London and New York: Press NEWS and the ARCHIVE Button on the Home Page for 'Wantagate' reports since April 2006. [Note: The CLICK HERE panel is now: NEWS. A panel giving details of our latest publications has been added].


This report consists of three Parts:

1. An international list of Directors of institutions (and of officials, commissioners and others in Britain and the United States), who may be co-conspirators and Accessories to the Fact of the serial illegal diversion, exploitation and criminal misappropriation and annexation of assets that belong to Ambassador Sir Leo Emil Wanta as sole Principal. This list relates to the current phase of Wantagate, as reported by this service since April 2006, and is not yet comprehensive.

It will be added to.

It is the obligation and duty of a Director to know what is going on inside the organisation on the Board of which he sits, to put a stop to irregularities and criminality and/or to report them to the Board and to the relevant authorities.

2. The international list of financial institutions assets belonging to the Ambassador as sole Principal as of 7th July 1993, as previously published on this website and in our financial journal, International Currency Review [Volume 31, #3 & 4, 2006].

This bank list covers institutions holding financial assets belonging to the Ambassador when he was ‘taken down’ by the criminalists, in an operation orchestrated by the White House to this day. Since Wantagate is now bedevilling international relations all over the world and has assumed the proportions of an unprecedented global crisis, it is appropriate to remind everyone of the far-reaching global spread of this list of Wanta institutions.

3. The list of US Statutes of which the perpetrators of crimes against Ambassador Sir Leo Wanta are in breach, as published in successive postings in this Wantagate series.

NOTICE: The Editor is taking sharp steps on 12th June 2007, the date on which his loan is due for repayment, to escalate the ‘Wisconsin dimension’ of the Wantagate crisis, as he is in a position to prove that fraud has been perpetrated against him given that the Case Number referred to in the Escrow Agreement covering his loan as prepared by Attorney Steven Goodwin is the same Case Number referenced in the covering letter dated 12th June 1992 from one of the Ambassador’s earlier lawyers to the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue enclosing a cheque being the second ‘nuisance’ payment by the Ambassador of $14,129 in settlement of the illegal civil tax assessment against him. [For the Wisconsin Taxation Gestapo background, see Archive, report dated 20th March 2006]. Secondly, the Editor of International Currency Review has a copy of the certified Satisfaction of Delinquent Tax Warrant dated 1st June 1993 referencing the Wisconsin Department of Revenue’s Tax Code for the Ambassador.

Any remaining malevolent spectators will be disappointed to learn that the Editor will NOT be suing the Ambassador, who was NOT of course responsible for this long-range fraud against him, but will be directing the attention of the relevant authorities to those who are parties to this fraud. The Editor, the Ambassador and Mr Michael C. Cottrell, M.S., are satisfied that the fraud against this Editor was a deliberate ‘bait and switch’ operation, designed to set this British Editor against the Ambassador. This will not happen, no doubt to the chagrin of the cynical handlers involved. One day these arrogant, devious operatives may finally wake up to the discovery that their habitual duplicity and subterfuge is liable to boomerang and to prove counter-productive.

By way of introduction, read the following comments by Mr Lloyd C Blankfein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Goldman Sachs, published in The New York Times, Sunday, 10th June 2007:

‘If you take an historical perspective, clients want us to do what clients have always wanted their bankers to do…’.

Excuse us? Goldman Sachs, a broker-dealer, ‘is not really a bank’ [UK-based Goldman Sachs Compliance Officer to this Editor in 2006]. Mr Blankfein continued: ‘… Give good advice and provide them with the financial means with which to be able to act… We’ve come full circle, because this is exactly what the Rothschilds or J P Morgan the banker were doing in their heyday. What caused the aberration was the Glass-Steagall Act’ – which, being interpreted, means that Mr Lloyd C Blankfein might prefer to go back to the free-for-all, rip-off days before the US securities regulations took effect: hence the former Goldman Sachs Chairman Henry Paulson’s recent waffle, for public consumption, about his preference for a ‘principles-based’ system.

Woolly principles are of course no substitute for enforceable securities regulations, but such a system sure would 'legitimise', in theory at least, the kinds of criminal financing operations that have been the subject of our reports up to this anniversary of the Wanta Plan Settlement accord.

So what these operatives are driving at is that the insistence by Michael C. Cottrell, M.S., the Executive Vice President and Treasurer of Ambassador Wanta’s AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc., upon the full application and implementation of ALL the stringent US securities regulations, which the US Securities and Exchange Commission is failing to enforce [see below], gets in their craw.

Fancy Mr Blankfein representing that Goldman Sachs, which is not a bank, acts like a bank – thereby implying that he would prefer that his institution became a bank, where controls (especially in the United States) are far less stringent than in the securities market context. What kind of signal does this message send to his firm’s clients?

Mr Blankfein elaborated in his New York Times coverage:

‘In the space of five years, we went from being a firm with a small balance sheet which was considered to be too advice-oriented and lacking of financial muscle, to be taken seriously – to an organisation which generates articles with headlines like:


This extraordinary admission, especially the last two words, suggests that Mr Blankfein’s approach to the bind that his institution finds itself in, given the background that we have reported on this website, is that ‘attack is the best form of defence’.

One imagines that his reportedly huge remuneration package has had nothing whatsoever to do with Goldman Sachs’ exploitation of Ambassador Wanta’s $4.5 trillion Settlement funds, over which the broker-dealer’s former Chairman, Henry ‘Conflict-of-Interest’ M. Paulson, has retained sole signatory authority. Is Mr Blankfein by any chance nervous about what lies in store?

Moreover, what was the point he was making in this following further comment: ‘I haven’t felt this good since July 1998’. In August 1998, the Russian rouble crashed along with the Russian financial economy. Now why, exactly, could this former Goldman Sachs gold salesman be anticipating a similar calamity in the United States?

Could his comments by any chance have anything to do with the need, as he may see it, to ensure that Goldman Sachs does not get blamed for the coming crash which, if it occurs, will be 100% attributable to his own institution’s interference with the Wanta Plan, which will refinance and rehabilitate the US and world financial economies – ‘for the sake of the whole of humanity’, to quote Her Majesty the Queen?

The following is a list of Directors of financial institutions, elected and appointed US and UK officials, Commissioners and others, who may have variously allowed, condoned, accommodated, or whose institutions may have actively participated in, and may continue to participate in, criminal and illegal fiat money financial transactions exploiting the $4.5 trillion compromise financial Settlement agreed for Ambassador Wanta in May and June 2006 and/or circumstances arising therefrom. Typically, this Settlement was negotiated by the duplicitous US intelligence crooks concerned, in bad faith; but the agreement is binding on all parties and has to be implemented. At the very least, each individual listed here may be an Accessory to the Fact of some or all of the felonies under US law listed in Part 3 of this presentation. Many may have been or may be co-conspirators. All the Directors of the World Bank are included, given that, as with all Directors in any context, it is their responsibility to see to it that the institution on the Board of which they serve does not engage in dubious, ethically improper and/or illegal and criminal activities, including the diversion and exploitation of assets belonging to others. Since there is no excuse in law for ignorance of the law – even in the international environment where the Rule of Law has been replaced by the Law of the Jungle – those Directors and others listed here who may profess to be ignorant of the scandalous exploitation of Ambassador Wanta’s underlying $27.5+ trillion of assets held in his USC Title 18, Section 6 corporations’ bank accounts, and/or of transactions derived from Ambassador Wanta’s $4.5 trillion Settlement funds, cannot sustain any such defence for their inaction in failing to take steps to have criminal transnational financial abuses stopped, and those responsible reported and brought before relevant Courts of Law*.

Repeat of our published list of financial institutions holding Wanta assets as at 7th July 1993, when the Ambassador was illegally seized and ‘taken out’ so that the criminal operatives and their co-conspiring financial institutions and their corrupt US intelligence community collaborators and intermediaries could exploit the Wanta accounts without (so they rashly assumed) any likelihood of their criminal actions being exposed. In order to ‘legitimise’ this open-ended financial criminality, the Central Intelligence Agency lie factory disseminated the lie that Ambassador Sir Leo Wanta was dead. When he ceased to be dead on 21st July 2005, the Agency, which cannot tell the difference between lies and the truth, realised that it had been caught ‘in flagrante’, and all the CIA’s dirty lies and disinformation about Sir Leo Emil Wanta, including the muck-raking lies in CIA hack operative Claire Sterling’s ‘Thieves’ World’, were immediately discredited. The CIA had egg on its face, as did all the corrupt banks which had been playing with the Ambassador’s funds.

Some ‘Useful Idiots’ in the US financial community and among the CIA’s paid deceivers are still spouting these old lies to this day. The list of banks holding Wanta assets in July 1993 and which the Ambassador, hoping to save the international financial system from collapse, has refrained from ordering to repatriate his funds in the aggregate amount of $27.5+ trillion that they held in July 1993, is as follows:

*Self-evidently, some of these institutions have since been absorbed into other institutions, have been rebranded, or have otherwise become successor organisations since Sir Leo Wanta was illegally ‘taken down’ 1993. The successor organisations are responsible for the Wanta Title 18, Section 6 corporate accounts and the assets they contain, inherited from the institutions that merged with them. Comprehensive details and facsimiles of the ACTUAL TRANSACTIONS, BANK ACCOUNTS AND COORDINATES, were published in International Currency Review, Volume 31, 3/4 [December 2006].
