Well, now that we have that cleared up....

Fernando Lugo has "totally recovered" from his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Was he ever really sick?

Fernando Lugo in May and October 2010. tiwy.com
Proving that he is a sick president?
Maybe he can thank the doctors in Brazil, since he routinely left Paraguay for treatments.

Now he can lead a normal life.

What is a normal life?

Having enough money to fake one's death and escape to South America?

Did Ken Lay do that?

January 01, 2009
The coroner who did the autopsy is Dr. Robert Kurtzman. He is the coroner of Mesa County, where Ken Lay did not die.It has been known in the higher class circles of Wall St that Kenny Boy has had serious work done to his face,still alive and well living it up in Paraguay with every dollar he stole when he was the CEO of Enron.

Is Mark Madoff really dead? Did he hang himself with a dog leash? Really? How sad?

Or has he headed down to Paraguay to get things ready for pops?

"It could be like the Ken Lay situation when they find him guilty but before they actually sentence him, he quote unquote dies, and disappears, and the body is never found. The medical examiner never reports anything, that they discovered any body that was dead, and he'll [Madoff - ed.] will be living with Ken Lay in Paraguay." ~ Max Keiser, 2009

People who reportedly enjoy Paraguay include: Dick Cheney, George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Nancy Pelosi, Maurice Strong, Sun Myung Moon, Jack Black, Teri Hatcher, Cindy Crawford, Bono, Peter Tork, and Pete Wentz....and the US military....and Chinese investors.

Are we strange and bizarre for questioning whether people who claim to be sick are really sick, whether people who claim to be dead are really dead? Are we strange to wonder why rich and famous people flock to Paraguay, a hot, landlocked country in South America?

Is it that big a stretch to think a few people can fake their deaths when we have the most massive financial fraud in history left basically unreported?

What if the greatest scam ever perpetrated was blatantly exposed, and the US media didn’t cover it? Does that mean the scam could keep going? That’s what we are about to find out....
We were finally granted the honor and privilege of finding out the specifics, a limited one-time Federal Reserve view, of a secret taxpayer funded “backdoor bailout” by a small group of unelected bankers. This data release reveals “emergency lending programs” that doled out $12.3 TRILLION in taxpayer money - $3.3 trillion in liquidity, $9 trillion in “other financial arrangements.”
Wait, what? Did you say $12.3 TRILLION tax dollars were thrown around in secrecy by unelected bankers… and Congress didn’t know any of the details?
...The Federal Reserve was secretly throwing around our money in unprecedented fashion, and it wasn’t just to the usual suspects like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citigroup, Bank of America, etc.; it was to the entire Global Banking Cartel. To central banks throughout the world: Australia, Denmark, Japan, Mexico, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, England… To the Fed’s foreign primary dealers like Credit Suisse (Switzerland), Deutsche Bank (Germany), Royal Bank of Scotland (U.K.), Barclays (U.K.), BNP Paribas (France)… All their Ponzi players were “gifted.” All the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations got their cut.

...The Fed doled out $12.3 trillion in near-zero interest loans, using the American people as collateral, demanding nothing in return, other than a bunch of toxic assets in some cases. They only gave this money to a select group of insiders, at a time when very few had any money because all these same insiders and speculators crashed the system.
Do you get that? The very people most responsible for crashing the system, were then rewarded with trillions of our dollars. This gave that select group of insiders unlimited power to seize control of assets and have unprecedented leverage over almost everything within their economies - crony capitalism on steroids.
This was a hostile world takeover orchestrated through economic attacks by a very small group of unelected global bankers. They paralyzed the system, then were given the power to recreate it according to their own desires. No free market, no democracy of any kind. All done in secrecy. In the process, they gave themselves all-time record-breaking bonuses and impoverished tens of millions of people - they have put into motion a system that will inevitably collapse again and utterly destroy the very existence of what is left of an economic middle class.
That is not hyperbole. That is what happened.

So maybe faking a death or a disease is not such a big deal. Maybe it's not so hard to pull a fast one on the American people.


US sanctions 'Hizbullah financiers in Africa, South America'

BEIRUT: The US has targeted a network of West African businesses it suspected of funding Hizbullah, imposing financial sanctions against two Lebanese brothers and several listed companies.

Punitive measures were also taken against an alleged Hizbullah operative in South America.

“Today’s designation targets two of Hizbullah’s top financiers in Africa. Ali and Husain Tajideen’s multinational network generates millions of dollars in funding and secures strategic geographical strongholds for Hizbullah,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Stuart Levey.

Ali Tajideen was alleged to have provided Hizbullah with several payments over a number of years – the largest coming in $1 million installments. According to the US Treasury, he is an influential figure in Jihad al-Bina, a Lebanon-based construction firm that functions as a reconstruction agency of Hizbullah.

Let's pause here to look up Jihad al-Bina. Franklin Lamb covered this very issue in February 2007: US Israel Lobby Targets Lebanon's Jihad al-Bina

The US Israel lobby has been after Jihad al-Bina for years but the organization became a prime target following the August 14, ceasefire. A quick glance at Jihad al-Binna makes clear why it was slated for the ever expanding Bush administration "terrorism list". 
We learn that Jihad al-Binna is:

  • An extremely effective NGO of Lebanon's civil society;
  • whose primary objective to alleviate hardships of the population;
  • and to that end it completes thousands of reconstruction projects, including restoring water and electricity in areas bombed by Israel.

The US Ambassador to Lebanon Jeffrey Feltman, a Jew, and his colleague, Stuart Levey, the US undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence in the Treasury Department, also a Jew, say that Hezbollah uses Jihad al-Binna to "attract popular support through the provision of civilian construction services." Which is BAD, see? But they are professionals in the US government so you can trust them.

Who else?

In addition, Husain Tajideen was named as “a primary Hizbullah fundraiser and prominent Hizbullah supporter in The Gambia.” (US Sanctions)
Husain Tajideen? We had read at the time that someone named Hassan Tajideen was killed in the Ethiopian plane crash off the coast of Lebanon. He had a brother Kassim, and the two of them had been named by Stuart Levey in 2009 as terrorist financiers. Evidently Ali is the *third* brother.

But the story didn't quite add up. And that whole plane crash scene was an utter fiasco, as we followed it carefully at the time.

2. well now that didn’t work out. no boxes yet.  it’s apparently very, very difficult to find these boxes. they keep throwing depth numbers around like maybe there’s some limit to how deep they can go, and i’m starting to get the impression that the boxes will be unrecoverable or lost in some trench. maybe they should call James Cameron seeing as he was able to reach the titanic two miles underwater to make a gazillion dollars on a hollywood movie, and ask him how he did that. so we still can’t find out what really happened, and why the pilot made that strange turn was he avoiding something? and the strangest statement yet …keep reading…..
4. also, isn’t it a little strange that, given that only 14 bodies have been identified so far, and this has required DNA testing because the bodies are burned and/or dismembered, that Hassan Tajideen was found and identified and buried so quickly? that just seems super extra odd to me, given the incredible difficulty we hear now about finding the body of the plane and the rest of the passengers and the black boxes. Tajideen was buried on Tuesday, but good luck finding out any info. there’s no coverage of it.
But then they found the boxes, finally, and the whole thing was determined to be Human Error. Naturally. And as for Hassan Tajideen, the supposedly dead Hezbollah commander whose body was found immediately and buried. Hmm. So, hey, maybe he is not really dead either then? Seeing as he's still funding Hezbollah according to the US Treasury Department just this week?

And there's more.

The treasury designation order claimed to be clamping down on channels of funding for Hizbullah, officially classified as a terrorist organization by Washington, through penalizing businesses throughout Lebanon, The Gambia, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola and the British Virgin Islands.

In addition, Bilal Mohsen Wehbe was designated for financial constraints after being named an influential figure in Hizbullah’s South American business operations. “As Hizbullah’s chief representative in South America, Wehbe has relayed information and direction between Hizbullah leaders in Lebanon and Hizbullah elements in South America,” a Treasury statement said Thursday.

“He has also overseen Hizbullah’s counterintelligence activity in the Tri-Border Area (TBA) of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, the statement said.

“Wehbe has been involved in transferring funds collected in Brazil to Hizbullah in Lebanon,” the statement added.

The US Treasury said Wehbe and fellow businessman Ali Muhammad Kazan had managed to channel $500,000 worth of funds to Hizbullah bank accounts following the 2006 summer war with Israel.

The US has in the past imposed financial sanctions on organizations affiliated with Hizbullah. This week, The Daily Star revealed that US Embassy Beirut officials are alleged to have provided Washington with names and contact details of listed shareholders in Al-Manar television, the self-proclaimed “channel of the resistance.”

A cable obtained by WikiLeaks and seen by The Daily Star suggested that US officials advised the State Department to designate shareholders as being affiliated with “terrorist” activities.

Lebanon has extensive diaspora communities extending across the globe, particularly in the Gulf, Africa and South America. Another cable released by the WikiLeaks site suggested that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had voiced concerns over Hizbullah-related operations in South America, voicing disquiet in a document sent to regional US consulates about perceived Hizbullah-Iranian activities in places such as Brazil, Bolivia and Colombia.

According to the US Embassy document here: http://paraguay.usembassy.gov/hizballah_fundraising_network_in_the_triple_frontier2.html, Abdallah owns the Galeria Page building in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay.

Galeria Page, a shopping center in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, serves as a source of fundraising for Hizballah in the TBA and is locally considered the central headquarters for Hizballah members in the TBA. Galeria Page is managed and owned by TBA Hizballah members, including members of the Barakat network. Local Hizballah members operate businesses within Galeria Page and funds generated from these businesses support Hizballah. Muhammad Yusif Abdallah, a manager of Galeria Page, paid a regular quota to Hizballah based on profits he received from Galeria Page. Shops in the building have also been involved in illicit activity, including the sale of counterfeit U.S. dollars.
Yes? Should we really worry about the Galeria Page shopping plaza? REALLY?

You know we think there is some ILLICIT ACTIVITY GOING ON CLOSER TO HOME.
