Where is the world’s wealth?

We all know by now how the banking system works, using the Fractional Reserve Banking method to create money out of thin air, loan it out, register it as an asset and charge interest on the repayments. Instant wealth creation for the banks and their owners.

We also know that governments around the world bleed their citizens dry with taxes, which are then fed to corporations, banks and individuals by way of grants, subsidies or bailout funding of some sort.

We have also seen the statistic that states that the world’s 85 richest people own more of that wealth than the bottom half of humanity, some 3.5 billion people.

But what do these wealthy people do with it. Put it in a bank?.. Well yes and no, because most of the banks that you and I use are regulated and they don’t want their wealth within the grasp of officialdom. They use private banks, so private that most are completely unknown. They sit outside of any regulatory or supranational bodies and are therefore untouchable and untaxable, and we not talking here of a few millions, or even billions, these people have trillions tucked away.

And having accumulated all that wealth, how do they use it? By using the Shadow Banking system and unregulated brokers. “Shadow banking, as usually defined, comprises a diverse set of institutions and markets that, collectively, carry out traditional banking functions–but do so outside, or in ways only loosely linked to, the traditional system of regulated depository institutions. Examples of important components of the shadow banking system include securitization vehicles, asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) conduits, money market mutual funds, markets for repurchase agreements (repos), investment banks, and mortgage companies.”

Shadow banking has grown in importance to rival traditional depository banking and was a primary factor in the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007-2008 and global recession that followed.

One such ‘Broker’ out of many in this unregulated and untaxed arena is Clement Associates, who pitch themselves thus.

Specialising in Gold, Platinum and Petrochemicals trading, Clement Associates leverages its worldwide presence to deliver exceptional execution and clearing services for private, commercial and institutional clients.

We also provide unparalleled expertise in equities, foreign exchange, commercial foreign exchange and alternative investment strategies. This comprehensive offering allows us to effectively and proactively respond to your most sophisticated trading and hedging needs.

Our commitment to partnering with each client is based on the concepts of high-quality personalized service and cutting-edge innovation. We are dedicated to empowering investors with integrated global-trading solutions and expert analysis.

Clement Associates keep themselves well clear of any regulation with their terms and conditions specifying the following:

The information and opinions provided on this Site are not intended and should not be distributed or used by, any person, firm or enterprise anywhere where distribution or use would be contrary to the laws or regulations of that jurisdiction or country or which might subject CLEMENT ASSOCIATES to any registration or government filing requirement.

Such a requirement to avoid any registration or government filing requirement would also mean that they remained outside of any tax jurisdiction. Just what the uber rich need, can’t be going paying taxes like the little people.

$100 million minimum investment, the sort of money it might not be an idea to put on the market or register anywhere, same goes for the procurement and sale of military equipment which Clement Associates also undertake.

No registrations, no addresses, no phone numbers, and no mention of legal jurisdictions in the T&C’s.

This is how the uber rich remain the uber rich, money just keeps making money and when you get to keep it all, none of it declared, none of it subject to taxation, we can see how the world’s wealth will keep heading in a single direction, up to those who have it and are keeping it to the detriment of the wider population.

Now before I finish this post, I come on to the matter of the man who supposedly runs Clement Associates. This is the fake ‘Lord’ Anthony Leitrim, aka Tony Clements, the ex Guards Polo Club coffee shop manager, whose LinkedIn profile provides the following information.

http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/lord-anthony-leitrim/10/716/116

Lord Anthony Leitrim

Clements Associates International

September 1979 – Present (35 years 1 month) United Kingdom

International Merchant Venturer – seeking and procuring trade on an international basis at Ruling family, Government and Corporate levels, and high net worth individuals – ‘not’ to be confused with the ancient Bristol based Merchant Venturers order founded on the slave trade amongst other things…

And although his LinkedIn profile has a link to Clement Associates, it is my understanding that it’s just another front on his part, pretending to be something he is not.

Tony Clements aka 'Lord' Leitrim.

Tony Clements aka the fake ‘Lord’ Leitrim.

It’s interesting that this fake ‘Lord’ is using a using a title made defunct in 1952, closed down by the FSA in 2005 for laundering Arab money, unregulated offshore investments and had his assets frozen for 2 years before moving his operation to Marbella in Spain, and I understand is under investigation again by Europol.

Over to Debrett’s: “This man who is calling himself Lord Leitrim hasn’t gone through the official channels and as far as we are concerned the title is extinct.”

Not all he’s cracked up to be this fake ‘Lord’, he likes to be photographed on big multimillion pound yachts or leaning on Rolls Royces but I can assure you none of them are his. He is just a well connected con-man and obsessive philanderer, who does rather well out of society balls and charity events to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, but in all reality he probably makes his cash laundering money for the underworld escapees now living in southern Spain.

Writing the book

Well I have been really busy this past month, often only getting to bed as others are getting up. The first 4 chapters (The Meeting, The Wedding, Austerity, 50 Shades in Blaenavon) will be ready for delivery to the publisher later this week for proof reading, legal assessment and editing.

Michelle Parker & IanPJ on Honeymoon in Rome 2006

Michelle Parker & IanPJ on Honeymoon in Rome 2006

Covering the period 2005-2014 it details our meeting, the long weekend together, our first year together, a wedding from heaven, then the first 4 years of a good strong healthy happy marriage, the trust and unconditional love up until time my money runs out, then into a period of austerity, job hunting, depression, withdrawal, indiscretions, holiday, rethinking goals, followed by setups, assumptions, lies, collusion, deciet and finally separation, followed by an attempt at reconcilliation on my part, but which was used by her as a ploy to simply gain time to get herself established with the least resistance but not expecting me to discover the cheating, lying, cuckolding and humiliation. Still, she always did chase the money.. what was mine was ours, what was hers was hers.

I have tried to keep this as fair and balanced as I can, and given the praise where it is due so it’s not a one sided story, but I can only write from my perspective, it is an autobiography after all, except where her words are quoted.

The 2 final chapters are by far the largest, bulked out to a large extent with direct quotations from text messages and a host of new information from emails. (I managed to recover the bulk of the deleted emails from the 2012/2013 archives, many of which have really shocked me, and I am sorry to say are likely to shock many of her family & friends).

At 233 pages its almost enough to form a book of its own, so expecting some form of discussion with publisher on how they would like to proceed with this.

Whilst this project began in anger it is now simply a commercial enterprise for me, and although I have no marital interest any longer I would love one last shagging weekend with her, to say goodbye properly, as I cannot deny the pain and love is still there, it simply will not die in me and its still eating me up inside.

Hopefully as the focus changes to the next period, the years 1995/2004, my freedom years, I can ease some of that pain.

Our ancient Customs & Liberties being destroyed

Liberty Lib”er*ty (l[i^]b”[~e]r*t[y^]), n.; pl. Liberties
(-t[i^]z). [OE. liberte, F. libert['e], fr. L. libertas, fr.
liber free. See Liberal.]
1. The state of a free person; exemption from subjection to
the will of another claiming ownership of the person or
services; freedom; — opposed to slavery, serfdom,
bondage, or subjection.
[1913 Webster]

Our forefathers worked long and hard, sacrificed much and in many cases shed their blood so that future generations could be guaranteed the continuation of our ancient Customs and Liberties, and the protection of our constitution.

Our key constitutional documents are these:

That Liberty they fought for included exemption from subjection by the State. This is now being undermined by a whole new raft of EU legislation, some of which is being manipulated through the UK parliament as we speak by what I can only refer to as traitors. All EU law undermines our constitution, all EU law undermines our rule of law, all EU law undermines our ancient Customs & Liberties as laid down by our consitituion, and its going to get worse.

Herman Van Rompuy said in a statement on economics: The EP and national parliaments both have a crucial role to play in legitimising future governance structures, he stressed, adding that a lack of legitimacy had been a flaw in the old stability and growth pact.

It is pleasing to hear direct from the horses mouth, the unelected Van Rompuy, that the EU, the unelected European Commission and its governance structures stand illegitimate.

We now discover that the judiciary, subjugated by politicians, ejected from our parliamentary structure, and no longer permitted to independently uphold our Common Law against these traitors, are in the main now part of variously open and secret networks across Europe in furtherance of the EU Project.

A new document has recently come to light, outlining some of the networks to which our judiciary have allowed themselves to become attached.

A draft working paper by Noreen O’Meara, PhD candidate, Queen Mary, University of London and Lecturer in Law, University of Surrey describes the context:

The role of the (EU) ‘national’ judge
Meanings, forms and patterns of ‘judicial dialogue’
The emergence of transnational judicial networks

It shows in some detail how our judiciary have been infiltrated, subjugated and our ancient Right & Customs are being trashed. To their shame.

The arrest of Judge Michael Peake in Birkenhead on the 7th March 2011 is likely to be the first of many, as the public begin to push back, realising that in so many cases our judiciary is no longer ‘acting under oath’ in the protection of our laws and customs, but playing the EU Corpus Juris legislative and administrative court game instead.

Battle has already commenced.

The Fabian technique of perverting the Parliamentary system to destroy responsible Government was warned against by the famous former Lord Chief Justice of England, Lord Hewart, in his great classic, The New Despotism (1929).

Lord Hewart made the following serious charge:
“A mass of evidence establishes the fact that there is in existence a persistent and well-contrived system, intending to produce, and in practice producing, a despotic power which at one and the same time places Government departments beyond the sovereignty of Parliament and beyond the jurisdiction of the Courts.”
The “persistent and well-contrived system” has been expanded enormously since Lord Hewart wrote his book

My Wife and the Fake Lord

Michelle Parker

Michelle Parker

51ab173f7faa0Seems my 43 year old wife, Michelle Parker, is still chasing the money… and at 71 this fake Lord playboy (using a title made defunct in 1952, closed down by the FSA in 2005 for laundering Arab money before moving his operation to Spain, and I understand under investigation again by Europol) has plenty of that, but then I don’t think she realises the price that will have to be paid for playing with the big boys in his league, like being ‘borrowed’ by his clients.

But then should I bother about saving her from herself anymore, I’ve had to do it in the past but I can’t be arsed now. I’m actually ashamed to be her husband.

Oh, Blaenavon is such a hotbed of rumour and gossip these days, I hear she got slapped down for asking for her trinkets in public.

Tony_Clements_-_2014-09-23_18.49.06 Tony_Clements_-_2014-09-23_18.49.25

I’m sure that’s not what Miracle Workers Agency had in mind when they hired her to care for the aged, especially the vulnerable ones.

Never mind, It all adds content for the book. Sleaze sells.

  • This from the Daily Mail as a bit of background.. Lord Cappuccino, full of beansHis badge emblazoned with the name “LordT. Leitrim”, former coffee shop manager Tony Clements was all smiles as he rubbed shoulders with the Queen at Smith’s Lawn, Windsor.Certainly his elevation to the ranks of the nobility has amused friends of the divorcee, who was escorting American-born oil heiress Laurel Allen at the Guards Polo Club event.Miss Allen, a native of ritzy Palm Beach in Florida – where she keeps a string of polo ponies – seemed much taken by her attentive companion. She told me: “I wouldn’t rule out being the next Lady Leitrim. I think having a title would go down very well in Palm Beach.”So who exactly is silverhaired Leitrim? For according to Debrett’s, the Leitrim title has been defunct since 1952 when the fifth Earl died without issue.But Mr Clements, who lives in Somerset and used to run the coffee shop with his ex-wife Philippa, tells me: “I am a fifth or sixth cousin or something and started using the title a couple of years ago. I’ve done everything in the correct manner through a lawyer.”He adds: “Regretfully, my assets have been frozen for the next two years by the Financial Services Authority after a problem with unregulated offshore investments.”Over to Debrett’s, who tell me: “As far as we are concerned the title is extinct.”http://www.dailymail.co.uk/columnists/article-352625/Theyre-changing-guards-Camilla.html

Book Stuff and more

BOOK STUFF & more.
Nothing to do with emotions anymore, this is just business.

In doing my own review of the book submitted so far, I have realised that some important areas have been missed out in my haste, coupled with the information in new emails that I have retrieved from the archives.

There were two areas which were glossed over in my first draft, to which I am now able to add much more meat to the bone, and will be writing in more detail about my wifes spending and the affairs that she claimed she never had.

Also as I had been so intent on focusing on the marriage breakdown, cuckolding and slease, in my haste I had overlooked my entry into the political world, and the time and effort taken to start a new technology business from scratch, the driving force behind it and the toll it took at home, so those sections need to be written and added to my draft.

As a result of this, I had a telephone discussion with my lawyer earlier today, and will over the next weeks be taking certain actions.

I will be initiating a legal claim to recover many thousands of pounds of my monies which my wife (Michelle Parker) took without my knowledge or permission whilst I was working away, making me unwittingly the Bank of Blaenavon, to pay off the debts of her friends, to repatriate her mother from Spain, and money she gave to her sister to help alleviate a near bankruptcy, and anything else brought to light during the discovery process, which may involve a subpoena of bank records.

Michelle Parker

Michelle Parker with IanPJ

In terms of my Wife’s (Michelle Parker) time spent with other men and the affairs, I have decided that not only will I be including details in the book, and because of the potentially long timescales to book publication, I will also be giving details and naming names both here and on my blog in due course, along with invitations to sue me, as I believe these should not get lost in the mist of time.

UK Parliament comes to an effective end

On the 1st November 2014 the right of Parliament to legislate over us in 43 areas, the important ones, will be removed and be made subject to approval. They call it QMV, Qualified Majority Voting.

Each member State will lose it right of Veto over these areas, so Cameron’s idea of  negotiation to recover any areas goes out the window at the same time.

The following areas of competence will switch from requiring unanimous approval of all member states to qualified majority voting only:

Initiatives of the High Representative for Foreign Affairs – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Administrative co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Asylum – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
Border controls – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Citizens’ initiative regulations – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Civil protection – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Committee of the Regions – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Common defence policy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Crime prevention incentives – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Criminal judicial co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Criminal law – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Culture – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Diplomatic & Consular protection – Nice: Unanimity Lisbon: QMV
Economic & Social Committee – Nice: QMV Lisbon: QMV
Emergency international aid – Nice: Unanimity Lisbon: QMV
Energy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
EU budget – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Eurojust – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
European Central Bank – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
European Court of Justice – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Europol – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Eurozone external representation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Foreign Affairs High Representative election – Lisbon: QMV
Freedom of movement for workers – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Freedom to establish a business – Nice: Unanimity Lisbon QMV
Freedom, security, justice, co-operation & evaluation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Funding the Common Foreign & Security Policy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
General economic interest services – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Humanitarian aid – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Immigration – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
Intellectual property – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Organisation of the Council of the EU – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Police co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
President of the European Council election – Lisbon: QMV
Response to natural disasters & terrorism – Lisbon: QMV
Rules concerning the Armaments Agency – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Self-employment access rights – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Social Security Unanimity – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
Space – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Sport – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Structural & Cohension Funds – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Tourism – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Transport – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Withdrawal of a member state – Lisbon: QMV

A brief review of the Treaties confirms the Transitional arrangements which allow, only on specific votes, for the Nice Treaty Provisions to apply from 1st November 2014 until March 2017, hence I imagine PM David Cameron’s determination to delay our referendum beyond that date, tying Britain for ever within the non-democratic, totalitarian and now clearly despotic EU.

For your reference, if anyone interested in the Treaty Articles behind this change, here is the legal bit. http://grahnlaw.blogspot.co.uk/2009/07/eu-qualified-majority-voting-qmv.html

How EU law is made

originally published August 28th, 2010 by IanPJ

When politicians explain that laws are made in Westminster they are only giving you a half truth, so please ask them to explain what I am about to show you below, and then ask them whether they understand the UK relationship with the EU, and how the UK is governed.

Following the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, the first pillar of EU law has been satisfied, subsumed into the Treaty on the EU (TEU) and into the renamed Treaty on the Functioning of the EU (TFEU). Such treaties provide primary law within all 27 member states.

As the Lisbon Treaty as subsumed allows for self amendment, there will be no more treaties of this kind, only International Agreements that will now be negotiated and sealed by the EU, and former National treaties that will be adopted and form part of the TEU and TFEU, an example of which can be found here.

All other law, in the parlance of the EU, is called Secondary Legislation, and it is derived in the following ways, and I outline the three most important elements of secondary legislation, Regulations, Directives and Decisions. (and I take this from the EUR-LEX database direct).

1.3.1. Introduction

The ‘secondary legislation’ is the third major source of Community law after the treaties (primary legislation) and international agreements. It can be defined as the totality of the legislative instruments adopted by the European institutions pursuant to the provisions of the treaties. Secondary legislation comprises the binding legal instruments (regulations, directives and decisions) and non-binding instruments (resolutions, opinions) provided for in the EC Treaty, together with a whole series of other instruments such as the institutions’ internal regulations and Community action programmes.

1.3.2. Regulation

Adopted by the Council in conjunction with the European Parliament or by the Commission alone, a regulation is a general measure that is binding in all its parts. Unlike directives, which are addressed to the Member States, and decisions, which are for specified recipients, regulations are addressed to everyone.

A regulation is directly applicable, which means that it creates law which takes immediate effect in all the Member States in the same way as a national instrument, without any further action on the part of the national authorities.

1.3.3. Directive

Adopted by the Council in conjunction with the European Parliament or by the Commission alone, a directive is addressed to the Member States. Its main purpose is to align national legislation.

A directive is binding on the Member States as to the result to be achieved but leaves them the choice of the form and method they adopt to realise the Community objectives within the framework of their internal legal order.

If a directive has not been transposed into national legislation in a Member State, if it has been transposed incompletely or if there is a delay in transposing it, citizens can directly invoke the directive in question before the national courts.

1.3.4. Decision

Adopted either by the Council, by the Council in conjunction with the European Parliament or by the Commission, a decision is the instrument by which the Community institutions give a ruling on a particular matter. By means of a decision, the institutions can require a Member State or a citizen of the Union to take or refrain from taking a particular action, or confer rights or impose obligations on a Member State or a citizen.

A decision is:

- an individual measure, and the persons to whom it is addressed must be specified individually, which distinguishes a decision from a regulation,

- binding in its entirety.

It is important to note that the European Commission, an unelected body, has the power to make law using the methods above without recourse to either the European Parliament or the Council of Ministers. The UK Parliament, our MP’s, now only create on their own initiative something in the region of 15% of the laws that pass through Westminster. All other laws and Statutory Instruments are in furtherance of laws that have been made in Brussels using the 3 methods above.

If you go to the EUR-LEX database directly, you can see the other types of instruments that are used to formulate, or coerse  National Governments to introduce legislation ‘voluntarily’ with the veiled threat that a directive will follow unless they do. These are Recommendations, Opinions and Joint Actions.

The Smoking Ban is one such example, where the EU Commission has only ever given an Opinion that National governments were encouraged to follow, with explicit threats of EU legislation if they did not.

Historical laws and regulations are all on the various EU databases. All you have to do is find them, trouble is they keep moving them.

You don’t think they are trying to hide anything! Do you?

Backing away from the brink

How does a World Leader back away from the brink of disaster. You use your elected officials to narrowly restrain you.

Barak Obama has done his master’s bidding and taken the world to the brink of WWIII this week, but in a rare moment of better judgement he finds he cannot finally push the button.

How can he pull back, having marched his army to the top of the hill he cannot be seen simply to turn them round and march them down again. No-one would ever believe the word of the US again.

Similarly, he cannot be seen to be bowing to the growing international pressure mounting against the US, the same international community that the US frequently cites as being outraged allowing the US to do unspeakable things to the populations of other nations. This time however he has no coalition of the willing, as one by one they say No, not this time.

Nor can he be seen to be bowing to Russian or Chinese pressure, letting them move into the dominant international role that the US has enjoyed for two centuries.

No, the only way in which he can back down without losing face internationally is to have his own Congress reassert their Constitutional role, and over-rule the President. This will be spun on the basis that it is not a defeat for the President, but a win for democracy.

However, having said that, we all know that the best plans of mice and men can go wrong. Miliband for instance who wanted to support a strike on Syria but not wanted to be seen doing so, played a dangerous game of chess by whipping his own amendment, confused his own MP’s and got a different result from the one he wanted. In the end I think it was the right decision, and I care not how it was arrived at, but it shows the dangers of playing chess politics when the stakes are so high.

If this is the Obama plan, and it goes wrong, we could end up with several unwanted scenarios, including one where the US military refuses to carry out the orders of their own Commander in Chief. It is said that unrest amongst the US military is growing daily, and this picture surely says much.

Whether or not this is a real member of the US armed forces is unknown but we suspect it sums up many of their perspectives as Obama punts to Congress.

(via @NewsNinja2012)

As Obama ponders his next move, one that he has given plenty of time to, as he has not requested that Congress be recalled for a special vote, so will have to wait until they reconvene after the holidays on 9th September, and with 2 full days of debate, there will not be a vote until 11th September, a day most Americans would like to eradicate from their calendars. (and no doubt there will be some who will be saying this is symbolic)

Who knows, perhaps there is something in that, when we cast our minds back to Obama’s first visit to Saudi Arabia, when he was photographed in a fully subservient pose kneeling and bowing before the King, or the more recent revelations of incredibly frank discussions between Saudi’s spy-chief Prince Bandar and Russia’s Putin exposed a much deeper plot is afoot and details from the actual people on the ground in the chemically-attacked region of Syria suggest Obama is playing right into the Saudi’s Sunni domination plan, getting the world’s superpowers to do their dirty work for them.

It should also be remembered that immediately following 9/11 leading Saudi’s were allowed to leave the US unhindered, some even helped by the Bush family, and it was not long after that the incredible story of Gen. Westley Clarke, stating that the Bush administration had decided to take out 7 countries in 5 years, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran, although no-one had the slightest idea why. I think all is now becoming somewhat clearer, Shia led countries and petro dollars.

(n.b. General Wesley Clark, the retired four-star general. He was Supreme Allied Commander of NATO during the Kosovo War. He has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom)

As for Obama, his Muslim credentials are now visible for all to see, and we are not out of the woods yet. We have no idea which way the US Congress will finally vote, but it does at least give us some breathing space. Time that we must use wisely promoting diplomatic efforts to stop these wars, perhaps elevating the role of the Arab League to intervene rather than Britain or the US, or even the French who are clearly looking for an overseas adventure to distract their home grown economic/immigration/unemployment problems.

And speaking of the French, well the Saudi’s have just rewarded Obama’s remaining supporter with a 1.5billion euro defence contract. Speaks volumes.
