Pope Absconds With Barings Billions!

Longtime conspiracy researcher Sherman Skolnick sounds off on the pillaging of Barings Bank

The following is a transcript of a recorded phone message issued by the Chicago group "Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts [CCCC]." (312) 731-1100 and (312) 731-1505.

Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts, 9800 South Oglesby.

Well, the Queen of England's bank has gone under. What does it mean, huh?

Operating for over 230 years, Barings Brothers Securities survived wars and depressions, and was supposedly "done in" by a 28-year-old derivatives trader in the yen market who has conveniently disappeared. So was the royal British merchant bank killed by the misguided "lone assassin" of world finance? Oh yeah?!

Some write it off as merely another shot in the battle between securities traders and merchant bankers on one side, and the "banker bankers" on the other side. Under attack are laws in the united States prohibiting bankers from being in the stock and bond business. Others know it to be more profound.

In 1943, the Pope had an understanding with the western powers during World War II. The Vatican agreed not to interfere with financial matters of the West for 50 years. They agreed to protect the Vatican during and after the war. The American CIA later helped arrange and finance the mighty Vatican Bank, which became interwoven with the traditional Sicilian and Italian Mafia as well as the spook agencies worldwide.

Well, just before the 50 years expired, the western bankers started their attack on Italy's largest, the Banca Nazionale de Lavoro [BNL], owned in part by the Pope. They claimed that BNL secretly handles some $5 billion through their U.S. branch in Atlanta. Destination? Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi strongman, enabling him to buy exotic weapons disguised as "U.S. agriculture loans".

In 1990, BNL's Chicago branch became involved in a semi-secret, super-duper federal court case in Chicago involving joint, private business ventures of Saddam Hussein and his secret partner, George Herbert Walker Bush, at the time, U.S. President. The case revolved around billions and billions of dollars of oil kickbacks from other Persian Gulf countries. We [CCCC] were the only journalists at the federal appeals court hearing in 1991. The three-judge panel was blackmailed into quietly putting the case out of court. The Bush Justice Department knew about their bribery in 8 other cases. Writing the corrupt decision was Rockefeller agent Judge Richard A. Posner, later becoming chief judge.

The Pope and the British monarchy have been fighting around for over 500 years. So, two years ago, after the 50-year peace pact had expired, the Pope arranged to zap the Queen's bank. Barings managed the portfolio and reportedly controlled the assets of the public pension funds in Vermont, New York, Florida, Minnesota, and California. Billions of U.S. pension funds are frozen, or endangered, with the collapse of Barings. The huge London City bank, Abbey National, may also go down.

Barings' American conduit is Northern Trust Company of Chicago. Barings owned 40 percent of Dillon Read, a primary dealer in U.S. Treasury notes. More sinister: the British royal family, through Barings Bank, has been involved in the Far East dope trade for over 150 years! With the coming of "China White" [heroin], however, the Queen and her dope-laundry bank have been somehow "X'd out".

The Barings Bank crowd know the secret that Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and his family actually were not murdered in 1918 at the time of the Russian Revolution. In 1974, our chairman [CCCC] and others with us interviewed, for two whole days, Alexei Romanov, who has substantial proof that he, his sisters, and parents, the Tsar and Tsarina of Russia, were not murdered as falsely stated by history books. Involved is $400 million in Romanov family gold in the Rockefeller banks -- when gold was $20 per ounce. If the secret comes out, the Rockefellers would have to disgorge billions of dollars.
