Apart From Choirboys
What Do Popes Do?
Pope Pius 12th. Former Papal Nuncio in Berlin supported Hitler during and after WW2. As custodian of a vast amount of Nazi gold in the Vatican Bank he assisted scores of Nazis war-criminals to escape down the aptly named "Rat-line" to the U.S. and South America.
John Paul 1st. Signed his own death warrant when he wrote
that he believed it was time to change the Vatican policy and allow certain types of birth control. He also signalled his intention to stop the
Mafia and the CIA using the Vatican Bank as a 24/7 money laundry for counterfeit currency, drugs & arms deals and gold bullion stolen by Heads of State from their own Treasuries. Financial writers welcomed the new Pope and urged him to look into the
ultra-vile-criminal dealing of the Continental Bank of Chicago, jointly owned by the Vatican and the Queen.
The happy reign of Pope John Paul 1st lasted 33 days. He was poisoned with a cup of tea...
Murder in the Vatican
Next Man In:
John Paul 2nd.
As a young man
John Paul 2nd worked with the pro-Nazi Bishop of Krakow in occupied Poland. As a team they used all their dubious skills to subdue Catholic Poles while Polish Jews were being shipped-off to slave labour camps
- where millions were worked to death or simply shot for being old or sick...
John Paul 2nd came under fire when an earthquake devastated a part of southern Italy. The Italian media appealed to the new Pontiff to use the immensely rich Vatican Bank to send urgently needed aid. He refused to send a
fucking penny. In May 1981, a mentally ill Turkish citizen was arrested in Vatican Square moments after he shot John Paul 2nd in the stomach. The Italian
media had a field day linking the “Mad Turk” failed assassin to
Mafia, the CIA, but mainly the tens of thousands of earthquake victims John Paul 2nd
told to fuck off...
In Mexico where countless millions live in over-crowded-stinking-squalor, John Paul 2nd told his flock to carry-on breeding like rabbits because the
1%need more cannon fodder. Although he didn’t use those exact words.
Next Man In:
"Pope Benny The Nazi"
16th , who reputedly wore tights and his old Jackboots under his cassock,
served with distinction in the Hitler Youth Movement. He became surprisingly
popular when he refused to entertain the repulsive Bush mouthpiece "Miss
9/11 Condoleezza Rice." The White House Press Office wanted to announce the pair were meeting at the Pope’s Castelgandolfo
holiday estate to discuss the Middle East. But Benny The Nazi was having
none of it. A Vatican spokesman said the Pope "is looking forward to a
restful holiday." The last thing he wanted to see was the blood-soaked-war-criminal, lying whore
Condi Rice. Rice is a good friend of Her Majesty's friend Jack Straw who
announced in parliament he didn't think child abuse victims should give
evidence against their abusers! It transpired Straw's bother is a convicted
paedophile... While her countrymen in New Orleans were drowning in
sewerage. Condi Rice went shoe-shopping and then on to Broadway, to see
Monty Python's SPAM, Her boss President George W Bush, promised
Hurricane Katrina victims immediate help and immediately abandoned them.
Benny the Nazi did the Christian thing when he told Condi Rice
to fuck off.

Banks In America, The Giannini Family, And The CIA - Pt 1
The Pope has had at least three banks in America. What later was called the
Continental Bank of Chicago, was founded in Chicago under different names
prior to the American Civil War. About the same time as the setting up in
1857 of the Chicago Board of Trade with which the Continental became
interwoven. Their transactions were so incestuous,,, how could one tell one
from another? Early in its highly corrupt history, the Board of Trade was
[and some say, still is] such a gambling hell, that Western Union Telegraph
once cut off its wire there, refusing them services.
From early on, the Bank as well as the Board of Trade were supervised by the
British and French Rothschilds, jointly with the Pope and the Papal States.
And from early on, representatives of both the Vatican and the British
monarchy sat on the Board of Continental. Few understand enough about all
this to easily conceive of the Pope and the Queeen, together. In the public
mind, at best, these are forces of friction.
Traditionally, members of the CBOT were those of the Irish Catholic and some
few of the Jewish aristocracy, not your everyday ethnic and religious folk.
As strange as it may seem to ousiders, this raucous gang was fully
acceptable to and allowed themselves to be supervised by the representatives
of the British royal house together with the Vatican.
From the onset, the Rothschilds were instrumental in the grain trading. To
those who know a lot about the bloody conflict, called the Civil War in the
North and the War Between the States in the South, President Abraham
Lincoln's proposed post-war policies were bound to cause problems. The 16th
President proposed to bind up the wounds of the Nation and not to be further
destructive of the rebellious, now vanquished South. That policy would have
permitted the South to as quickly as possible resume production of
commodities, such as cotton. But, the Rothschilds, however, had in place
speculations, in Chicago and New York, by which they would greatly profit if
production would NOT soon resume and cotton prices were high or went higher.
The largest importer of U.S. cotton had been England for monopolistic
textile production. And some contend the Civil War was fomented by Great
Britain itching to take back the American continent as a British puppet
colony, having failed to do so by the War of 1812. States' rights and the
slavery issues, some say, were simply a gut-wrenching financial and
emotional excuse to smash up the united federal republic.
Secretly involved in the Rothschild speculations to profit from high prices,
post-war, were key members of the U.S. Congress. As part of this cabal, the
head of what is now called the U.S. Secret Service, Lafayette C. Baker,
plotted to create a security vacuum [like later in Dallas, 1963]. at some
event where a convenient Southern assassin would be permitted to blow out
the brains of Lincoln, the party-spoiler [or John F. Kennedy, who stepped in
the face of the Oil Cartel].
To set an example, understood by some, Lincoln was assassinated on highly
Catholic religious Good Friday, a few days after the War ended. A key
assassination player fled, and took up refuge in the Vatican. Rothschild
agent, August Belmont, and his conspiratorial ring, their speculative
positions secured, prospered greatly. Lincoln's surviving son Todd somehow
fell in with his father's financial enemies. Very late in life, Todd said as
to the papers he had assembled, that if the papers had been known, and
revealed earlier, press and railroad owners, those who claimed to be
Lincoln's friends, would all have been hung, for they plotted the
President's demise. The documents showed how the Continental Bank had
handled the finances for the political assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Todd reportedly burned the documents. [Not all of them.]
Amidst the growing bank collapses of the Great Depression, in 1931, the
Federal Government through a massive loan, bailed out failing Continental
Bank. This was also abou the time that Italian strongman Benito Mussolini
bailed out the money-starved Vatican. The events, to some, are related.
Thereafter, beholden to the central government, Continental became a
convenient link to espionage. Continental allowed its facilities to be used
to disguise government paid provocateurs and con-men used to manipulate
public opinion. [Resulting in a little known federal court case against
Continental in the 1970s. We have the file.]
In 1984, again sinking, Continental had some some of its principal owners
jump ship about six weeks before its plight become more known. As major
owners of its parent holding company, the Vatican and the Queen of England
sold THEIR shares before the market price went to almost zero. [I was the
first to publicly correctly estimate the run on Continental as 20 billion
dollars of flight capital.] A major owner of the bank itself, Walter J.
Cummings, Jr., prevented hungry litigators from deluging the federal courts
with damage suits against the Bank. Cummings was Chief Judge of the U.S.
Court of Appeals in Chicago, one step below the U.S. Supreme Court. The high
court in Washington hearing very few cases, Cummings' Court was, in effect,
the end of the line for most federal litigation from Illinois, Indiana, and
Wisconsin, the 7th Federal Circuit. Off the record, Chief Judge Cummings
threatened reprisals against lawyers if they brought a flood of damage suits
against his Bank.
After all, Judge Cummings was a "man of trust" for the Vatican, safeguarding
their interests in his Bank and in his Court. He did NOT disqualify in
related litigation. Guess who won in his crooked Court?
Another financial enterprise of the Pope in the U.S. is Bank of America.
They have done a fairly good jon to conceal the Vatican ownership. They paid
for a puff piece book, called, "Biography of A Bank- The Story of Bank of
America N.T. and S.A." by Marquis James and Bessie Rowland James. Published
1954 by Harper & Brothers, and more or less the standard reference work on
the bank's history.
They would have you believe that Bank of America National Trust and Savings
Association was at the time of the book "the largest bank in the world".
Bank mergers now occurring so rapidly, it is hard to say which is NOW the
world's largest Bank. They would further have you believe that this money
ship, up to 1930 called Bank of Italy, was founded by Amadeo Peter Giannini.
And that the Bank was able to spread out all over the world because Giannini
was so nice in helping people following the 1906 earthquake in San
Francisco. They were kept out of being a New York money center bank by the
agent and front for the British Monarchy, J.P.Morgan & Company.
By way of that book and the publicity flacks that followed over the years,
Bank of America is supposedly owned principally by numerous of their small
account holders. A fairy tale supreme. By the 1970s, Bank America, the
holding company, was owned principally by the Vatican and the Jesuits, the
Pope's clever army who occassionally see fit to rebuff the Pontiff. In the
1970s, the ownership broadened out to include the French Rothschilds,
wrongly identified by know-nothings as "Jewish bankers", actually very
Pro-Vatican into many joint finances not exactly compatible with ordinary
Jews or the State of Israel.
By the early 1990s, Bank America stock was steadily declining. More numerous
than the traditional Italian and Sicilian mafia, the Japanese underworld,
the Yakuza, bought their way into Bank America, becoming a major joint
owner. The Yakuza now owns most every bank headquartered in California. The
book "Yakuza" by Dubro and Kaplan, tells a lot about the Japanese mafia. In
Osaka, Japan, the Yakuza is actually an adjunct of the local police.
According to a discussion by the authors on a radio program, more than half
of the new buildings built downtown Chicago in the 1980s are owned by the
Yakuza. Later in the 1990s, Bank of America and the Giannini family merged
their interests publicly with Continental Bank, although the Chicago-based
and San Francisco-based money ships had been more or less joined at the hip
privately long before that. The office buildings in which are also housed
the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, are reportedly bankrupt because of low
occupancy but owned reportedly by the Yakuza.
[Some contend O.J. Simpson was framed up for the two murders because of
financial problems developed in enterprises in California he once greatly
owned but given, in part, to his ex-wife, Nicole, part of the divorce. Those
businesses reportedly were money laundries for the dope traffic controlled
by the Yakuza in murderous competition with the Mexican dope gang, the
Herreras. OJ once reported to the police that strange orientals were trying
to kill him.]
On behalf of the Pope, the Giannini family has operated in the Chicago-area
a so-far low-key operation called First National Bank of Cicero.
Historically, Cicero has been the mafia enclave adjunct to Chicago's old
West Side. A dominant force in with the Gianninis and that Bank has been
Bishop Paul Marcinkus, originally running aa Catholic Church in Cicero.
Marcinkus went on to become head of the Institute of Religious Works [IOR]
commonly called the Vatican Bank. Marcinkus fled the Vatican and took up
refuge in Chicago, late in 1991.
Shortly after Marcinkus returned to Chicago, a purported asset for Israeli
intelligence, the Mossad, in December, 1991, was found murdered,
mafia-style, not far from the First National Bank of Cicero. A U.S.
Bankruptcy Court auctioneer who corruptly skimmed off funds from Bankrupt
Estates to contribute to Israel, Wallace Lieberman tried to shake down the
Giannini family, their bank in Cicero, and related others, threatening to
expose their role in the corrupt traffic in illicit gold, arms, radioactive
materials, and such; that they acted jointly with the American CIA, the
traditional Italian and Sicilian mafia, and Bank of America.
The murder of Lieberman was announced in the heavily pro-Vatican and
pro-British monarchy Chicago Tribune, in their edition for Christmas Day,
1991, an ironic twist not lost on everyone. Shortly thereafter, Lieberman's
son, Barry, was framed up on U.S. treason charges. Barry Lieberman was
supposedly caught in the process of supposedly selling to the State of
Israel, certain stolen top U.S. military electronic counter-measure radar
secret equipment. Actually, equipment abandoned by U.S. forces in the Iraqi
and Saudi desert after the short Persian Gulf War.
With the help of Marcinkus and the Giannini family, an Illinois State
Senator, Judy Baar Topinka, from the Berwyn-Cicero area, was elected in
1994, as Illinois Treasurer. On our TV Show in October of that year, she
praised the First National Bank of Cicero and former Vatican Bank Chief
Marcinkus who she said she knew. She had previously, in some capacity or
another, acted as public relations flack for the bank in Cicero. Topinka was
re-elected in 1998. So,the former Vatican Bank crooked helped install the
woman who is in charge of all the State money of Illinois.
After leaving Chicago, sometime after 1991, Marcinkus took up residence in
Sun City, Arizona. Italian authorities have tried repeatedly, to no avail,
to force the U.S. to send Marcinkus back to Italy for prosecution for crimes
implicating him and the Vatican Bank, the American CIA, and the traditional
mafia, in assassination financing, arms smuggling, and illegal trafficking
in stolen gold, counterfeit currencies, stolen bond, and radioactive
materials. Marcinkus fought off all such attempts to send him back to Italy,
by sheltering himself in his Vatican passport, the Vatican, after all, being
a separate sovereignty from the Republic of Italy.
Briefly surfacing in December, 1995, was a related scandal. A retired agent
of the American CIA, living in Italy with dual U.S.-Italian citizenship, was
arrested by the Italian police. Roger D'Onofrio was charged with being
implicated with at least ten others in illegal trafficking in stolen gold,
stolen bonds, exceptionally good quality counterfeit currencies
destabilizing the economies of various countries, and trafficking in osmium
nuclear bomb detonators and other radioactive materials. Reportedly
implicated with D'Onofrio were a ring that included the former Vatican Bank
Chief Paul Marcinkus, the Archbishop of Barcelona, Spain, and the First
National Bank of Cicero. Earlier, D'Onofrio had been described by a witness
as the CIA's paymaster with the task of making secret payments to CIA assets
and business partners.
Other witnesses reportedly contend that D'Onofrio's team were the ones
reportedly arranging to poison Pope John Paul 1st who was murdered after
only 33 days in office. That Pontiff wanted to stop the Vatican Bank and
Marcinkus from dirty business with the American CIA and the traditional
No coincidence. After Marcinkus returned to Chicago late in 1991, set up in
Chicago about the same time was the North American office of the
super-secret Catholic organization, Opus Dei. This was done reportedly with
the aid of the Archbishop of Milan, Italy.
In August, 1995, we did a taped TV Show, partly on-location, right near the
First National Bank of Cicero, pointing out their criminal enterprises with
Marcinkus, Topinka, and a confidant of that Bank, John Tarullo who lived
nearby. Tarullo was once a member of the London Gold Pool and arranged
clandestine shipments of stolen gold for the American CIA and the
traditional mafia, as well as other criminal cartels. He was closely aligned
with the Archbishop of Milan and, some say, also the Archbishop of
Barcelona. [Note: Wallace Lieberman's body was found betweeen the bank and
the not faraway residence of Tarullo.] Tarullo was murdered on the day our
TV Show was cablecast.
The Vatican has a major interest in a world-wide chain of Hotels and Motels
called Ramada. A member of the Giannini family, Steven Belmonte [his mother
is a Giannini], has been a top operating official of the chain. According to
persistent off the record reports by very well informed law enforcement,
Ramada reportedly is in some way implicated in vast money laundering of
illicit funds, smuggled gold, and proceeds from the dope and arms traffic.
Or, at the very minimum, traffickers and money launders of the same somehow
find it convenient if not safe and secure, to meet at various Ramada
Since about 1983, there have been a series of state and federal lawsuits by
Joseph Andreuccetti, a Chicago-area caulking contractor. He has contended
that First National Bank of Cicero, in combination with other banks and
savings & loans, misappropriated tens of millions of dollars of funds,
assets, and properties belonging to him. In the process, an extensive real
estate development in a western suburb, called Kingspoint Condominiums,
owned by him, was stolen by corrupt top IRS offiicals in the Chicago region,
for their own personal benefit and not for the Public Treasury. The Acting
Inspector General, Robert Cesca, arranged reportedly to cover it up. Cesca
has been described by law enforcement personnel, as "the highest ranking
mafia representative in the U.S. government".
About 1983, a federal agency parked 58.4 million dollars in federal funds
with Household Bank and Household International [described by some as CIA
proprietary operations]. This was to make good Andreuccetti's pending
claims. About 1988, 50 million dollars of that disappeared, and was secretly
transferred to Little Rock, Arkansas, to try to cover up a 47 million dollar
S & L embezzlement for which Bill and Hillary Clinton are subject to federal
criminal prosecution and upon conviction, federal prison.
Joseph Andreuccetti, a member of the Giannini Family, contends some in the
Family want him silenced because of all the details coming out through his
extensive litigation about the financial octopus linked to other Giannini
family members, former Vatican Bank Chief and crook Marcinkus, the Giannini-linked
First National Bank of Cicero, the merger of two corrupt enterprises, Bank
of America and Continental Bank, and the involvement of CIA proprietary
Household International and Household Bank. Household is the alter ego and
successor to the CIA's Nugan-Hand Bank which disappeared in 1980.
Arriving in the fall of 1999 in the Chicago area and closely tracking him,
Joseph Andreuccetti contends, has been a "hit" team head, known abroad as
"The Sweet Assassin" by the way the killer boss is friendly to his target,
kissing the target on the cheek, and then arranging some form of rub-out.
This top killer has total immunity, U.S. and Italy, and elsewhere, and has
co-ordinated his doings reportedly with the American CIA, primarily in
Italy, and with the Italian military intelligence service, SISMI. These
efforts are likewise intersected with the operations of Propaganda Due,
known as P-2, a super-secret society pledged to overthrowing representative
governments and re-instituting Fascism, the Iron Fist. P-2 has members in
Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and the U.S., including judges,
legislators, journalists, executive department and cabinet members,
espionage officials, and civil and military brass. Reported members include
former American secret political police chief George Herbert Walker Bush and
retired war industry chieftain Alexander Haig, once head of NATO.
