- Corrupt top IRS and Illinois State Revenue and other
officials, are reportedly incriminated in a sizeable dope bust in a Chicago
suburb. The narcotics arrests, attempted to be downplayed by politically
worried state and federal drug agents, occurred in the first business day
of the new century. That came in the wake of our exclusive related stories
aired on our weekly public access Cable TV Show, cablecast within Chicago
on November 29, 1999.
- On that one hour program, we had the picture of an ocean-going
boat, renamed "California Rose", owned and operated by current
and former IRS officials of the Chicago Region Office and State Revenue
collectors. Plying the Caribbean and with trips to Mexico, England, Portugal,
Spain, and elsewhere in Europe, the boat is reportedly used for on-board
and off-shore laundering, disguised as gambling monies and such, of massive
funds from dope trafficking, gun running, and major underworld and tax-cheating
enterprises. The boat is reportedly linked to an accounting operation near
Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, apparently specializing in all-cash
so-called "bookkeeping", run by former IRS officials.
- As shown in undisputed court records, some of the same
revenue officials are also reportedly silent partners in a Chicago suburban
shopping center, Cermak Plaza, in which money laundering from illicit enterprises
is likewise conducted. The shopping mall is reportedly linked to the nearby
First National Bank of CICERO, in the mafia enclave long known as Al Capone
Land. According to federal judicial financial disclosure records, the shopping
center is owned by Chicago U.S. District Judge George M. Marovich [(312)435-5590].
The revenue officials and that Judge reportedly use their official position
to protect and condone the money laundering and criminality.
- Reluctantly describing the early morning drug bust, U.S.
Drug Enforcement Administration officials said they snatched a cache of
more than 835 pounds of marijuana with a wholesale value of $835,000. The
drug operation was through one or more apartments in Kingspoint Condominiums,
located in Chicago's western suburb of Addison. [Footnote One]. Reporters
accidentally found out about the arrests and questioned the drug officials
as to why they sought to avoid press coverage on the sizeable drug raid.
No real answers were given. The reporters omitted this from their routine
press reports. Also omitted, was why FEDERAL officials brought the suspects
to a STATE court and prison facility.
- A few weeks prior to the arrests, we sent by Registered
Mail, six heavy volumes of documents relating to the misdeeds of top state
and federal tax collectors, including those in the Chicago Region IRS Office
as well as state officials in the Illinois capitol; the documents were
received by the Office of Inspector General, U.S. Department of the Treasury,
Washington, D.C. [Footnote two.]
- The drug arrests are just a small recent part of a highly
complex series of events revolving around four large apartment buildings,
the selfsame Kingspoint Condominiums, in Addison, Illinois. Started about
1980, the buildings were built on land owned by Chicago-based Apollo Savings
& Loan Association, owned by known mobsters jointly with corrupt top
officials of the IRS and the Illinois Department of Revenue. Now defunct,
the S & L was a money washing apparatus for criminal enterprises and
major tax-cheaters. The downfall of Apollo was whitewashed by some of Chicago's
too numerous bank-owning crooked judges.
- As shown by undisputed court documents, the sole owner
of the buildings was Joseph Andreuccetti, a caulking contractor. Andreuccetti
has been swindled out of more than 50 million dollars by a series of banks.
To make good his pending claims, a federal regulatory agency parked 58.4
million dollars in 1983, with Household International and Household Bank,
the principal owner of which is the Vatican. General Counsel of Household
was William Colby, former Director of the American CIA. At a key point
in the Andreuccetti Affair, in 1996, Colby was murdered by a foreign intelligence
team and disguised as a "boating accident". Previously, Colby
had likewise been General Counsel of Nugan Hand Bank, like Household, a
CIA proprietary operation. Amid scandals and murders, Nugan Hand Bank disappeared
in 1980. [As to Colby and Nugan Hand Bank, and the CIA, see the book "The
Crimes of Patriots" by Jonathan Kwitny.]
- In 1988, 50 million dollars of the federal funds escrowed
with Household, disappeared and could not be located despite searching
by more than 32 U.S. Government bookkeepers. The funds were secretly transferred
by John E. Gierum, a supervisor of the funds and crony of the Hillary Rodham
family. Gierum and Hillary resided in the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge.
Gierum went to law school with Hillary's brother. In a confession made
to me as a reporter, in the presence of his former client, Joseph Andreuccetti,
Gierum complained that Bill and Hillary Clinton were seeking to frame and
jail him for the mysterious 50 million dollar disappearance. When confronted
in court, Gierum did not dispute the details of the confession.
- The 50 million dollars showed up in Little Rock, Arkansas,
in an attempt to cover up the 47 million dollar embezzlement of Madison
Guaranty Savings & Loan, for which Bill and Hillary Clinton are subject
to federal criminal prosecution.
- Congressman Dan Burton [R., Ind.] commented on how Clinton
sent the mysterious 50 million dollars out of the U.S. to a known dope
money laundry in the Caribbean. [Congressional Record, 5/29/96, pages H-5627-28.]
The 3 million dollar difference, between the 50 million dollars secretly
transferred, and the 47 million for the embezzlement cover up, is known
in mob jargon, as "street tax". The three million dollars quickly
showed up in the hands of reputed "fixer" from Chicago, Rahm
Emanuel, who moved to Arkansas to raise "campaign funds" for
Clinton's presidential campaign, by apparent extortions and shake-downs.
Describing Rahm Emanuel as a "fixer", the Chicago Tribune commented
on how the 3 million dollars which apparently just showed up, was used
to jump-start Clinton's campaign and put him in first position. [Chicago
Tribune Magazine, Sunday, 11/23/97, page 34.] Clinton rewarded Rahm Emanuel
by making him for six years, on and off, White House Senior Advisor.
- Undisputed court records show the theft of the Kingspoint
Condominiums buildings, to victimize Joseph Andreuccetti, was started by
bank disbursements falsely showing payment to Andreuccetti who never received
such payments. In fact, the funds were taken by Christian Henning, Jr.,
godson and nephew of Bishop Paul Marcinkus, up to 1991 head of the Vatican
Bank and originally from Cicero, the gangster stronghold. Henning falsely
labeled himself as Andreuccetti's "partner". With the aid of
Marcinkus-dominated First National Bank of Cicero, Henning and other persons
were permitted by First National Bank of Cicero jointly with corrupt IRS
officials and reportedly under the supevision of the Arthur Andersen accounting
firm, to misappropriate the funds for Henning and his cronies own purposes.
- According to Italian authorities, First National Bank
of Cicero, Marcinkus, the Archbishop of Barcelona, Spain, and a CIA-agent
and corrupt paymaster living in Italy, were implicated in a vast operation
with the mafia, the Vatican Bank, and the American CIA. They were all accused
of smuggling clandestine gold, osmium nuclear bomb triggers, and high quality
counterfeit foreign currencies. In Italy, it is known as the Roger D'Onofrio
Affair, named after the CIA agent living near Naples.
- It was always puzzling why and how First National Bank
of Cicero pushed Joseph Andreuccetti and his wife into INVOLUNTARY bankruptcy
and kept them there for almost 14 years, one of the longest pending cases
of its kind. The case all the while was heard by Chicago Chief Bankruptcy
Judge John D. Schwartz, a former official of First National Bank of Cicero
and through nominees, a concealed stockholder of that Bank. [Sept.1984
to December 17, 1997 was the pendency of the cases.]
- In 1990, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Auctioneer, Wallace Lieberman,
instead of auctioning off the buildings, bought the buildings himself jointly
with a known mobster who had long been granted immunity by the corrupt
IRS in Chicago, Robert Bellavia. Shortly after Vatican Bank Chief Marcinkus
returned to Chicago in 1991, Lieberman was murdered, gangland-style, near
the Marcinkus-dominated First National Bank of Cicero. Bellavia was suddenly
and quickly prosecuted and sent to prison, the hurry-up work of an IRS
team ordered to do so by their superiors. [Our TV Show were the only ones
to air a one-hour documentary on the murder of Lieberman.] At about that
time, as Lieberman was dumped into the cemetery and Bellavia parked in
jail, top IRS officials and State Revenue officials stole the Kingspoint
Condominium buildings for themselves personally, not for the public Treasury.
To cover up this top-level corruption, computer records as well as back-up
records were "glitched out", so that land titles and such disappeared
or were concealed. A matter of undisputed court record are the related
and pertinent admissions and confessions of an IRS official, as to this,
speaking for the Acting Chief of the Criminal Investigation Division of
IRS, 9/20/94, interviewed for 90 minutes by myself in the presence of Joseph
- From the beginning of the events to misappropriate the
Kingspoint Condominiums, by corrupt revenue officials, narcotics agents
have known the buildings and adjoining parking lots were "immune"
locations for the safe distribution of dope and transfer of large sums
of dope cash. Both the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in Chicago,
and their predecessors, as well as the Chicago FBI, have granted absolute
immunity to the reported drug traffic centered in or near the buildings.
The state and federal authorities knew, as well, that some of the dope
traffic was part of the massive Japanese mafia, the Yakuza. For example,
authors of the book, "Yakuza", Dubro and Kaplan, contended in
a radio broadcast that the Japanese underworld owns 50 per cent of the
high-rise buildings built in downtown Chicago during the heyday of the
- Living near the Kingspoint Condominiums has been Congressman
Henry Hyde [R.,Ill.], implicated himself with corrupt top revenue officials.
Hyde, head of the House Judiciary Committee that limited impeachment of
Clinton to sexual matters, reportedly owns a strip joint in an unincorporated
area adjoining Chicago. Hyde's reputed establishment uses strippers from
Russia and other foreign countries, and violates regulations of the U.S.
Immigration and Naturalization Service, INS. Hyde's reputed strip club,
featuring total or near total nudity, reportedly keeps no records or reports
for the state or federal revenue, as required by law.
- A federal agency brought a damage suit in Chicago Federal
District Court against Henry Hyde and other former directors of the west
suburban Clyde Savings and Loan Association, contending these S & L
officials by their wrongful acts, caused the federally-insured institution
to go under. Among other things, Hyde was accused of causing 67 million
dollars of the thrift's funds to mysteriously be transferred to Arkansas
where it disappeared. Congressman Hyde, head of the House Judiciary Committee
with power to remove corrupt federal judges, arrogantly said he is not
going to pay a dime to the federal government despite their documented
claims against him. The case was decided, naturally, by U.S. District Judge
George M. Marovich, subject to blackmail because of his ownership of a
mobster shoppping center jointly with corrupt revenue officials, as earlier
stated. Operating under a malign if not corrupt influence, Judge Marovich
heavily punished the OTHER former S & L directors, but turned loose
Hyde without paying a dime.
- According to reported media records as well as law enforcement
files, the following occurred in 1988. An undercover news team, accompanied
by anchor face XXXXX, of XXXXX's Chicago outlet, WMAQ-TV, Channel 5, put
themselves in a position to videotape the delivery of a suitcase full of
cash from the Japanese mafia, the Yakuza. Married into the Utley family
that owns the license of Channel 5, XXXXX has long been a "faucet"
for elements of the Organized Crime Strike Force of the U.S. Justice Department.
From them, she received a tip of the fund transfer, to be done with the
reported assistance of members of the purported church group headed by
Rev.Sun Myung Moon who on behalf of the Korean CIA owns the Washington
Times. The "church" has been accused by some in law enforcement
of being a device to use huge sums in the U.S. from funds from Asia and
South America, suspected proceeds of dope trafficking, gun smuggling, defense
contract kick-backs, and other illicit activities.
- According to the Justice Department leak, the huge cash
was reportedly to be picked up by as yet then unknown representative of
the Illinois Republican Party, to be used or disguised as alleged "campaign
funds" concealing their illegal foreign origin. The clandestine video
crew and XXXXX were accompanied or "shadowed" by Chicago-based
agents of British counter-intelligence, MI-6, because the funds had been
conveyed by and through Hong Kong, then still a British colony.
- These undercover operators were flabbergasted when Congressman
Henry Hyde showed up himself, and accepted and took charge of the suitcase
full of cash. They should not have been surprised, however, since Henry
Hyde wears two hats:  as Congressman and  in violation of the U.S.
Constitution's mandate of Separation of Powers, Hyde is also the head of
CIA's "black budget", huge covert operations funds for political
assassinations and other dirty tricks.
- XXXXX reportedly told her crew later that Channel 5 News
Director told her that the TV station intended to run the videotape incriminating
Henry Hyde. XXXXX management in New York, however, forbade the airing of
the clandestine videotape. XXXXX already had their own problem, she apparently
was told, since a Chicago-based activist, using a recorded phone message,
already had implicated an XXXXX Vice President himself in the dope traffic.
[Referring to a recorded phone message by me as head of our group. The
XXXXX criminality was hushed up when the XXXXX dope traffic matter was
blamed onto a low-level black technician as a scapegoat who was hustled
off to jail.]
- XXXXX and their XXXXX in Chicago still have the videotape.
[AND SO DO CERTAIN OTHER FOLKS.] The videotape shows Congressman Henry
Hyde apparently picking up and taking transfer of the Japanese mafia suitcase
stuffed with cash, apparently in one of the parking lots of Kingspoint
Condominiums, that is, in a zone with absolute "immunity" by
the DEA, the FBI, and other state and federal agencies, including the IRS
and State revenue, whose officials stole the buildings.
- Media records and law enforcement files reportedly go
on to state that the reliable informants of the Justice Department and
the DEA contend the foreign funds were transferred to be used as so-called
"campaign contributions" by the Republican Party.
- The INVOLUNTARY bankruptcy and all that happened was
just a smokescreen for corrupt public officials to steal the buildings
and use the area as a form of Switzerland, a neutral zone for dirty business,
such as the dope traffic.In statements in court records, Joseph Andreuccetti
attributes the hell he has been put through for twenty years, as his "failure
to become a member of the traditional Italian and Sicilian mafia"
as required by the correct politics in America.
- Top honchos of the monopoly press are in a position to
know what the dope bust was all about but most likely will remain silent.
- Footnote One: A routine story about the dope bust in
Addison is in a paper in a Chicago suburb, called the Daily Herald, 1/4/2000.

the Inspector General via U.S. Postal Service, Registered Mail, Return
