- It could eventually become a many-volumed textbook study
of high level criminality perpetrated by lowlifes.
- Illicit gold transactions and smuggling. Bribery of high-level
state and federal officials. Laundering the funds of international criminal
gangs. This, and much more.
- The proposed title might simply be "La Salle National
Bank---Reputed Bribery Center".
- To get a handle on this subject, you would have to be
quite familiar with and have uncensored access to the following, among
- RECORDS OF THE HOUSE BANKING COMMITTEE under Texas populist
Congressman Wright Patman. as Chairman. For government printing office
publication in 1964, he ordered every National Bank in the U.S. to divulge
their twenty leading stockholders of record. Two reputed criminal enterprises,
known to Patman, refused. One was La Salle National Bank of Chicago and
the other was a similar money laundry in Indianapolis, Indiana.
- All the years of its operation, La Salle was known as
handling offshore escrow accounts for the reputed bribery of high-level
state and federal public officials including judges. If the Judge proceeded
to issue his or her poisonous, corrupt ruling, as ordered, then the escrowed
bribery funds went forward to another offshore account, that of the Judge.
That is, the Judge did not get the reputed bribe until the Judge delivered
and the corrupted decision became "bounce-proof", not subject
to being reversed by a yet higher court.
- RECORDS OF JAMES R. VASSILOS, super-bagman, attorney
for some top officials of the American CIA. He was once the husband of
the heiress to the Holland-based banking fortune, Algemene Bank Nederland,
ABN took over La Salle National Bank, as their U.S. flagship and then merged,
and became ABN-AMRO.
- Using gold stolen from the Soviet gold treasury upon
the downfall of the Soviet Empire, 1990-91, ABN bought up shaky banks,
WITH GOLD, in fifteen major American cities.[Some of this gold was offered
to John F. Kerry;s wife of convenience, Teresa Heinz, for him to concede
the 2004 Presidential Election. Yet, Kerry knew that by the Ohio vote,
becoming what was necessary to get the White House by the Electoral College
vote, Kerry was actually the President-Elect. He delayed conceding while
the unholy deal was arranged.. Overthrow series, part 64, "Buying
& Selling the U.S. Presidency". 11/5/4]
- RECORDS OF REPUBLIC NATIONAL BANK OF NEW YORK,, owned
principally by Edmond Safra, worldwide gold smuggler. He was murdered in
Monaco, 1999, in the midst of his bank being taken over by the British
Hong Kong opium fortune center, Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank and their parent
firm, headquartered in London, HSBC. [see 1999 gold story about Safra,
www.skolnicksreport.com ] Republic National Bank specialized in reputed
illicit dealings for the Russian mafiya, made up of former cut-throats
of the Soviet Secret Political Police, the KGB. .The Russian gangsters
operate with complete immunity and impunity, among other places, in Chicago,
Cleveland, Brooklyn, and Miami. The American Secret political Police, FBI
and Homeland Security, are afraid to tangle with the assassination experts
of the Russian mafiya. In Russia, Bankers that refuse to assist the mafiya,
are routinely murdered, several such events each month. Americans who dare
complain to FBI or Homeland Security about La Salle, ABN-AMRO, are routinely
stalked, harassed, and have their computers, websites, and phones sabotaged.
- A big secret in Chicago, is that La Salle reserves to
themself the arbitrary and lawless right to defy court summonses and subpoenas
served on them. Chicago-area judges, knowing what La Salle is into, routinely
refuse to enforce summonses and subpoenas. as against La Salle, and ABN-AMRO.
- Over the last forty years, as head of our court reform
group, I on occasion agreed to be the subpoena server, to serve on La Salle
National Bank's highly secretive Trust Department. I tested out the subpoena
service, handing the subpoena to manager of La Salle's Trust Department.
He looked at it, gave a smirk, and threw it away into the garbage can.
"Now get out of my office, Mr. Skolnick". As is their custom,
practice, and usage, in respect to La Salle, the Judge in the litigation,
naturally, refused to enforce the subpoena.
- [The term "custom, practice, and usage", is
a ;long-time habit or routine of public officials that has the same apparent
force as if actually a statute passed by the state Legislature or Congress.]
- RECORDS OF LA SALLE AND ABN-AMRO, showing the transactions
of various fronts operating for and on behalf of Osama bin Laden and several
Saudi Banks tied to him and his family that is not actually estranged from
him. On our website, and by radio talk show commentaries, after the U.S.
Treasury announced they were freezing up accounts related to Osama, I challenged
the U.S. Treasury to freeze up known Osama accounts with La Salle and ABN-AMRO.
The U.S. Treasury refused to do so for six months after my public statements.
- TRANSCRIPTS OF SKOLNICK'S COMMENTARIES ABOUT LA SALLE
NATIONAL BANK, from 1971 to 2003. Played as a recorded phone message, at
times on a chain-linked group of as many as thirty phones, called HOTLINE
NEWS. The phones were arranged to take the calls as "roll-over",
meaning jumping automatically to the next open line of the group.
- The commentaries repeatedly referred to La Salle and
later years, ABN-AMRO. Mentioned was the reputed criminality cover up of
Theo Bark, Director of ABN-AMRO, brother-in-law of super-bagman James R.
Vassilos. For the purposes of bribing top officials, Vassilos ran the annual
National Prayer Breakfast at a major hotel in Chicago. A packed Grand Ballroom
of top local, state, and federal officials attended.Later, under disguise
of deliviering a copy of the Bible, to for example, the IRS District Director,
Vassilos found ways to work a corrupt and malign influence on top IRS Officials,
such as in Chicago. [Some of the details are in my series, "Bankruptcy
Bordello" on, for example, rense.com Also see my website series, www.skolnicksreport.com
on IRS Corruption, including the IRS top officials and their clandestine
ocean-going ship uised to launder criminal funds. By Registered Mail, we
sent the details to the U.S. Treasury Inspector General who ignored it
all. We later discovered that Inspector General, mentioned in a secret
government report, was the highest ranking U.S. Government Official as
being a member of the traditional Sicilian and Italian Mafia. A Chixago
Federal Judge, James Alesia, about 1991, received the Anti-Mafia Medal
from the Northern League of Italy. He had survived three assassination
attempts in opposing the criminal enterprises linked to La Salle and ABN-AMRO.
The picture of a Northern Italy official giving the medal to the Judge
appeared only in the lawyer's newspaper, the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
Corrupt top officials of the U.S. Treasury and U.S. Justice Department
were greatly concerned about whispers that Judge Alesia, somehow through
intermediaries, was possibly assisting some loudmouth court reformers in
investigating La Salle and ABN-AMRO.]
- Amongst our research and investigation group is over
one million court documents, secret notebooks, audio/vido tapes, and related
material, a great deal of it relating to the corruption of La Salle National
Bank and ABN-AMRO.
- At the behest and urging of a foreign government, several
Federal Grand Juries are reportedly investigating the International Trust
records and secret Federal Reserve wire transfer records and such of La
Salle and ABN-AMRO, housed on the 29th floor of the bank building, at 135
So. La Salle St., Chicago, Illinois.
- This posed a situation highly detrimental to the Carlyle
Group and the Bush Crime Family, using the La Salle ABN-AMRO facilities
for worldwide dirty business, taking over with muscle, weapons and other
related businesses and then strong-arming contracts out of the highly corrupt
Pentagon. Also implicated in these records is the up-to-the-minute records
of the American CIA using Osama bin Laden, to give a false image of "terrorists"
endangering the U.S. through the high-level plot of the Aristocracy that
came to be known simply as 9-11. The Moslems were NOT actual participants,
just patsies, in the internal explosives that brought down the twin towers
of the World Trade Center, and later that same day, WTC Building 7.
- So here was a situation where La Salle and ABN-AMRO,
could not accomplish as they do locally, that is throw away and ignore
subpoenas, such as for Trust Department records. What could be done? Simple.
Burn down the records, with the international passwords of the highly secret
.records on the 29th Floor. By mirror image, the secret passwords are beyond
U.S. jurisdiction, not available by subpoena, in the money laundry/tax
havens of the Channel Islands, Luxembourg, and Liectenstein.
- So in a dramatic disaster, with hundreds of pieces of
fire equipment gathered at the 135 So. La Salle St. bank building, the
29th floor was burned down on December 7, 2004. Strange, all the bigshots
from Chicago of La Salle ABN-AMRO were in Amsterdam and had to hurry back
- Some somehow felt assured, that night that the owners
and operators of La Salle and ABN-AMRO, doing their reputed dirty business
in more than fifteen U.S. cities, including Chicago, slept well, their
secrets supposedly not even being hinted at by the oil-soaked, spy-riddled
American monopoly press.
- To get an even more complete picture of this reputed
criminality, you would have to undertake to read, one by one, most every
story on www.skolnicksreport.com and linked other websites.
- Lots more coming. Stay tuned.
