Ghislaine Maxwell – Silver Spoons and Hard Times

August 9, 2020
By Paul Serran
Ghislaine Maxwell led much of her life under the world’s fascinated microscopic view, always enthralled by her – famous and infamous – as it watched her fortunes wax and wane.
From the celebrated miracle daughter of media tycoon Robert Maxwell; to the broken young woman who fled scandal in the UK to a small New York apartment, trying to launch a new life; the rebirth Jet-set Ghislaine, who was everywhere at once, longtime companion of Jeffrey Epstein, a man even richer and more shady than her father; the sophisticated middle age woman, a runaway alleged criminal trying hard to avoid detection by her pursuers – finally, to the incarcerated, indicted suspected sex trafficker and perjurer.
Ghislaine was Robert and Betty Maxwell’s miracle baby, born on Christmas Day, 1961. Two days after that, their eldest son suffered a fatal car accident.
In 24 hours, it all had been somehow foretold: joy – and then tragedy.
During the Swinging Sixties, Robert Maxwell served two terms as a Labour Member of Parliament (MP) for Buckingham. He led a multimillionaire lifestyle, and was the host of star-studded parties at Headington Hill Hall, his baronial fifty-three-room Oxford mansion.
The Maxwells spent a million dollars redecorating the mansion. In a stained glass window scene for the imperial staircase, Israeli sculptor Nehemia Azaz depicted Robert Maxwell as the biblical hero Samson tearing down the gates of Gaza: “a titan of luck, impossible achievement, and unlimited wealth”.
They had the use of chauffeured luxury cars. They traveled the world in Robert’s Gulfstream IV Jet and his sleek 180-foot yacht, named Lady Ghislaine.
“If Bob Maxwell didn’t exist, no one could invent him,” Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock celebrated the bombastic, demanding mogul who dined with kings and presidents and had a bottomless appetite for family, food, fortune, and fame.
The first brush with financial and professional hardship came at a age when young Ghislaine would have been mostly sheltered from it.
In the early seventies, after Robert Maxwell tried similar shenanigans in a failed attempt to swindle the American financier Saul Steinberg, who was interested in a strategic acquisition of Pergamon Press. Steinberg claimed that during negotiations, Maxwell falsely stated that a subsidiary responsible for publishing encyclopedias was extremely profitable.
At the same time, Pergamon had been forced to reduce its profit forecasts for 1969 during the period of negotiations, leading to a suspension of dealing in Pergamon shares on the London stock markets.
It was found that Maxwell had contrived to maximize Pergamon’s share price through transactions between his private family companies. This was a criminal practice he would utilize again in the future.
Inspectors from Britain’s Department of Trade and Industry declared Maxwell unfit to run a public company: “Notwithstanding Mr. Maxwell’s acknowledged abilities and energy, he is not in our opinion a person who can be relied on to exercise proper stewardship of a publicly quoted company.”
‘Captain Bob’ established the Maxwell Foundation in tax haven Liechtenstein, in 1970. By the 1980s he come back roaring, prompted by money later said to have originated in the Soviet Union. He bought the Mirror Group built and a massive media conglomerate.
The good times were on: Ghislaine was nicknamed “The Shopper” because of her wild spending funded by Robert’s millions. He also bankrolled her failed corporate gifts business.
During this period, she reportedly had a VERY close relationship with her father and was widely credited with being her father’s favorite child.
In Oxford, Ghislaine led a student life of wealth and privilege. Her father would send Filipino servants to the college house she shared to clean, arrange the table and cook, in the event of a party.
Her career piggybacked on her father’s businesses. She was made director of the Oxford United, and later, put in charge of “special projects” of the New York Daily News.
With her father’s money, she found her way into society, especially in New York — a haven where she could escape his complete control.
But the good times were not to last. Overextended and over-leveraged, Maxwell’s empire was about to crumble.
At this time, Maxwell reportedly was a regular at London’s casinos, playing three tables at once, even dropping $2.5 million in a single night. For years, he had been an inveterate gambler, but this was the behavior of a desperate man whose time was running out.
“He was a very crude man,” said a female writer for Time magazine. “His polish was not very deep. If you were with him for any length of time, it peeled away. I was in his library in the Maxwell House penthouse—a beautiful apartment with marble and servants all over the place—and while I was admiring his books, his valet said to me, ‘You should see Mr. Maxwell’s collection of pornographic tapes’.”
Ghislaine visited her father in his office before he flew off to Gibraltar. “He was looking for an apartment in New York—a sort of pied-à-terre, where he could talk and have meetings—and he wanted me to help him,” she told Vanity Fair. “He asked me to go see a particular apartment. He said, ‘If you like it, I’ll make time to see it and come to New York.’ ” But the next time Ghislaine saw her father, he was dead.
”Ghislaine is the baby of the family and the one who was closest to her father,” her mother Betty told Vanity Press. ”The whole of Ghislaine’s world has collapsed, and it will be very difficult for her to continue.”
When she finally appeared before the reporters, she had collected herself. “How did your father die?” a journalist shouted at Ghislaine Maxwell. “He did not commit suicide. That was just not consistent with his character. I think he was murdered. ”
Maxwell, it turned out, had debts of nearly $5 billion, and had stolen hundreds of millions from the Mirror Group’s pension funds to shore up his faltering companies. That left 32,000 employees exposed to retirement ruin.
The irony was not lost on the hard-hitting British press: Robert Maxwell, a socialist, stealing hundreds of millions of pounds from the Mirror’s pension fund!
He swindled money from two of his public companies, transferred millions in and out the secret family trusts in Liechtenstein, to manipulate the share price of his Corporation.
Robert was called “rogue,” “crook,” “bully,” “thief,” “megalomaniac,” and “gangster.” The press told lurid tales of his sex orgies with midget Filipino hookers.
He was seen as a 310-pound aberration gorging on spoonfuls of caviar. An erratic and cruel tyrant who used Turkish towels for toilet paper. Journalists wrote that he was a spy for the K.G.B. or Mossad or Czech intelligence—or all three.
“My daughter Ghislaine has no money, no trusts, no funds anywhere.” her mother Betty told Vanity Fair. “Neither of [my children] had any money. Their father never gave them any money.”
Their assets were frozen. His son Kevin’s house was put up for sale, as were the Lady Ghislaine and the Gulfstream IV Jet. Their passports were seized.
A friend told The Times of London, “[Ghislaine] had always been the life and soul of the party wherever she wanted to go in the world and never had to worry about money.” Now she was the broken child of a monster, his name forever synonymous to scandal. “She was catatonic,” the friend said.
Forced to vacate her huge company-provided residence, she moved into a small apartment. When a friend came to visit, Ghislaine told her, “They took everything—everything—even the cutlery.”
Little did she know how many more times things in her life would shift from silver spoons to hard times. A woman brought up in luxury, she had everything taken from her, before she came to the United States to begin again.
“He wasn’t a crook,” Ghislaine told Vanity Press. “A thief to me is somebody who steals money. (…) Did he put it in his own pocket? Did he run off with the money? No. And that’s my definition of a crook.”
“I’m surviving—just,” she said. “But I can’t just die quietly in a comer. I have to believe that something good will come out of this mess. It’s sad for my mother. It’s sad to have lost my dad. It’s sad for my brothers. But I would say we’ll be back. Watch this space.”
Ghislaine Maxwell was also being hunted by the tabloids. The Maxwell name was so detested in London that she is said to have had to walk around in a blond wig so people wouldn’t recognize her.
Ghislaine Maxwell’s reinvention didn’t take long. Maxwell moved to the United States just after her father’s death. Her photograph boarding a Concorde to cross the Atlantic caused outrage – her father had just defrauded pensioners out of 750 Million Sterling Pounds.
According to the Mail on Sunday: “Unnoticed by almost everybody, traveling with her was a greying, plumpish, middle-aged American businessman who managed to avoid the photographers. It is to this man that 30-year-old Ghislaine has turned to ease the heartache of her father’s shame.”
“His name is Jeffrey Epstein.”
“Whose house is this, Ghislaine?” a friend asked her in the early 1990’s. “Who lives here?”
My friend,” Maxwell replied.
“Well, is he banging you?” the friend demanded. “What’s the scoop here?”
A trust fund is said to have provided her with an income of $145,000 a year. A far cry from her previous seemingly unending wealth. She “never, ever had any cash. Lots of credit, of course, but no cash”, one friend recalled to the press.
And yet, she lived the high life. She was known in New York as the “female Gatsby” for her lavish entertaining. Had a “reputation for being charming and funny, and a glittering lifestyle straight out of the pages of a society magazine”.
She was now “far from the ever watchful eye of the British press,” Hello! magazine wrote in 1997.
“She is proud of the fact that her new life is all down to her own hard work and has her elegant apartment to show for it,” the magazine mistakenly added. One day, she would “get married and have kids. But it has never been a focus: My focus is my business.”
Ghislaine’s presence added more fuel to the question: “How did Jeffrey Epstein amass his fortune?” For one of the most propagated theories is that Maxwell’s father Robert bankrolled him with funds hidden from the UK authorities.
Jeffrey Epstein built a 21,000-square-foot mansion on a massive ranch in New Mexico, which – he boasted – made his New York townhouse “look like a shack”. He named it the Zorro Ranch. He also acquired a 72-acre island in the Virgin Islands and an 8,600-square-foot home in Paris, with a specially built massage room.
She had found a path back to the lifestyle she’d lost when her father died. “She was used to living very well,” says a friend who knew her then. “She didn’t want to go back to where she was.” All she had to do to keep it was to give ‘the monster’ what he wanted.
Maxwell was expected to drop everything to serve Epstein.
She had to keep everyone in line, because one misstep would unleash the wrath of Epstein, one of the few people who could make Maxwell cry. “He would be screaming over the phone,” recalled an Epstein victim, “and she would burst into tears.”
The New York townhouse became a social nexus; guests could have included members of the Kennedy and Rockefeller clans, “along with the requisite sprinkling of countesses and billionaires,” according to The Times of London.
She was “a modern-day geisha” in a “domain filled with the richest people in the planet. “It’s a world frequented by young half-naked girls in bikinis, billionaires and lavish lifestyles, but it borders on the grotesque. You are never really sure what is going on behind closed doors.”
Royalty was specially prized, which is why her friendship with Prince Andrew became so treasured. In 2000, Maxwell and Epstein attended a Prince Andrew’s party at the Queen’s Sandringham House estate in Norfolk, England. It has been reported that the event was in honor of Maxwell’s 39th birthday.
And yet, Ghislaine began trying to distance herself from Epstein long before he went to jail. In the early 2000s, she hooked up in California with a man much richer than Epstein: Ted Waitt.
Waitt lived in a seven-bedroom, 14-bath mansion in La Jolla, sailed the world aboard a 240-foot mega-yacht, the Plan B. It was equipped with a helipad, Jacuzzi, elevator, gym, and HAD AN ONBOARD SUBMARINE, which Maxwell soon was licensed to pilot.
After Epstein went to prison in Florida for a short period, Maxwell saw the silver spoons turned into hard times again.
Acquaintances that crossed her path reported how she was almost unrecognizable. She was not stylish and attention grabbing anymore, seemed determined to go unnoticed. Her face had no makeup. There was a hint of gray in her black hair, she put on some weight.
“I was so shocked by her look,” a friend recalled to the British press. “I didn’t recognize her.”
She even gave up her once proud name, sometimes introducing herself to new acquaintances only as “G.”
“Where are you living, Ghislaine?” the friend asked. “I lost touch with you.” Maxwell suddenly went blank. “Oh,” she replied, “a little bit everywhere.”
December 2014: Virginia Roberts Giuffre filed a motion in the Southern District of Florida describing Maxwell as Epstein’s “primary coconspirator and participant in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme.”
Maxwell made a huge mistake, issuing an “urgent” statement to the media dismissing the claims as “obvious lies.” That allowed Giuffre, to sue Maxwell for defamation in federal court in New York, a lawsuit “widely viewed as a vessel for Epstein’s victims to expose the scope of Epstein’s crimes,” according to the Miami Herald.
Maxwell affirmed her innocence with fury, at one point of her testimony banging her fists on the table. She also, according to charges filed by the DOJ SDNY, committed two counts of perjury.
2019: when the SDNY reopened the criminal investigation into Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine was far away, living the high life.
She met with her friend Prince Andrew in Buckingham Palace, and participated in “Cash & Rocket”, an annual charity road rally. Between races of the rally, she joined the super rich in attending a Masquerade Ball in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as a White dinner at La Reserve in Geneva and the Red party at the Yacht Club de Monaco.
Those were to be her last reported events. Cash & Rocket scrub Maxwell’s photo from its website once Epstein was arrested and the scandal assaulted the headlines again.
On July 6, 2019, Epstein was arrested by federal agents at Teterboro Airport, arriving from Paris. The FBI raided his mansion, and charged him with sex trafficking of minors.
“Epstein’s pimp girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, a very well-connected Brit socialite cannot just walk free,” actress Ellen Barking tweeted the day after Epstein’s arrest. “This woman is his pimp. She pilots planes [sic] to and from the island. I know because she told me.”
Maxwell again went into hiding, unreachable during legal proceedings. It surfaced in December 2019 that Maxwell was among the people under FBI investigation for facilitating Epstein’s crimes.
She was faced with a tabloid frenzy even bigger than the one that accompanied the death of her father. She again uprooted herself and tried to start over in Manchester-by-the-Sea, a quiet village 30 miles north of Boston, she lived for a time in the $3 million, five-bedroom colonial home of Scott Borgerson, CEO of CargoMetrics, a hedge fund investment company involved in maritime data analytics.
Since Epstein was found dead in jail, last August, she is reported to have moved 36 times, out of fear for her safety. Credible Death threats arrived by social media, email, phone, text, and postal service. It began in earnest with Epstein’s arrest, multiplied with his death, and accelerated in the months that followed. They soon became a routine part of her life.
She hired a professional security firm, with operatives that are veterans of intelligence and law enforcement agencies.
This photoshopped photo of Maxwell surfaced last year to mislead the public into thinking she was in Los Angeles. Frank Report was the first to report the photo a fake, a story that went viral.
“Where in the world was Ghislaine Maxwell? Everyone, it seemed, had a theory, each wilder than the last. She was said to be hiding deep beneath the sea in a submarine, which she was licensed to pilot. Or she was lying low in Israel, under the protection of the Mossad, the powerful intelligence agency with whom her late father supposedly tangled. Or she was in the FBI witness protection program, or ensconced in luxury in a villa in the South of France, or sunning herself naked on the coast of Spain, or holed up in a high-security doomsday bunker belonging to rich and powerful friends whose lives might implode should Maxwell ever reveal what she knows—all the dirty secrets of the dirty world that she and Epstein shared.”
(Vanity Fair – Jul 3, 2020)
Maxwell remained at large, beyond the reach of attorneys, tabloid reporters, and a 10,000-pound reward from The Sun in London.
“It’s a little bit like Elvis—you get lots of reports but they’re hard to verify,” a victim attorney said in May.
She was periodically said to have been spotted around the world, usually in places where she was not. Reporters scoured the globe. Some said she was in Russia trying to get a Oligarch to protect her. Others pointed to Israel or Brazil, China, Singapore, the Middle East, England.
She was “both everywhere and nowhere,” lamented UK’s The Guardian.
On August 2019, she was apparently photographed eating a burger and fries in the Cahuenga Boulevard, in the San Fernando Valley. She held The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives. Given Ghislaine and her father Robert’s alleged ties to Intelligence Services, this choice does not seem accidental.
Papers were running out of incredible stories to account for her disappearance. A bizarre new theory emerged she could be hiding in a submarine which – as we saw – was not downright impossible, since she DID have a license to pilot underground vehicles.
On July 2nd 2020, Maxwell was arrested by the FBI and NYPD in the small New England town of Bradford, New Hampshire. It is situated at driving distance of the NYSD. They finally found her in a luxurious four-bedroom, 4,365-square-foot home on a wooded lot, called Tuckedaway.
Ghislaine Maxwell was charged with six federal crimes: luring and enticement of minors, sex trafficking of children and perjury.
The crimes took place between 1994 and 1997, the years of her “intimate relationship with Epstein,” when she “assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls.”
One of the three unnamed victims was “as young as 14 years old when they were groomed and abused by Maxwell and Epstein, both of whom knew that certain victims were in fact under the age of 18.”
FBI assistant director William F. Sweeney Jr. described Maxwell as “one of the villains of this investigation,” who had “slithered away to a gorgeous property” in New Hampshire, where she was “continuing to live a life of privilege while her victims live with the trauma inflicted upon them years ago.”
“I am optimistic about my future,” she said in 1997, “and believe things will continue to improve for me as time passes.”
Now, according to sources close to her, “I don’t think [Ghislaine] sees there is a future,” came the reply.
If found guilty of all charges, Maxwell could face a prison sentence of 35 years. She denies the accusations, and has pleaded not guilty to all six charges.
She will await trial locked up in the Metropolitan Detention Center, in Brooklyn. A dreadful prison that is as removed from her previous “silver spoon” upbringing as it’s possible in the US. Hard times.
She used to be a larger than life character, who once hosted a dinner for NY socialites on ‘the fine art of giving a blow job’. But then, she really blew it.
A report from a source familiar with the Metropolitan Detention Center gives a glum picture of Ghislaine Maxwell’s present conditions.
She is in the women’s section and believed to be confined to a solitary cell. Because of the past history of the MDC, it is not impossible to suspect that Ghislaine could be having sexual relations with one or more corrections officers, either male or female. Her available wealth would permit her to buy some privileges directly from the corrections officers who could smuggle in items for her.
MDC has a history of guards, male and female, enjoying sex with prisoners and smuggling in everything from alcohol to cell phones to drugs. While she is not enjoying what anyone would call a privileged life, and is most likely [because of Covid protocols] confined to her cell, dank and cold [in summer] perhaps as much as 23-24 hours per day and possibly getting only one hot meal per day, our source says, with her wealth and talent to charm, if there is any privilege, any opportunity, any luxury to enjoy at MDC, she is enjoying it.
Of course, she is probably under near-constant surveillance, for no guard wants to go to prison for letting her get murdered or commit suicide – as did her former lover Epstein. It is not known how frequently she is meeting with lawyers in special rooms set aside for the purpose. But an MDC source tells Frank Report that prison officials are known to eavesdrop on those conversations with lawyers and defendants and do so on high profile cases. Whether they report to the prosecution what they learn is unknown.
In the end, Maxwell has a hard road to hoe and will remain in the brutal and unsanitary MDC until she stands trial or makes a plea deal or dies. The possibility of additional charges other than those currently charged against her – for hebephilia crimes in the last century – remain a possibility.
The late Jeffrey Epstein was a convicted hebephile, a person who has urges for post pubescent but under the age of consent children. Is Ghislaine one also? And are there others, famous and prominent men of power who have indulged as Jeffrey and allegedly Ghislaine have done?
The ace in the hole for her, obviously, is, if she has info on other prominent hebephiles that the DOJ for its own partisan or PR reasons might like to selectively prosecute, she can trade that info for a lenient sentence and hopefully not be murdered for doing so.
Her former lover, Jeffrey Epstein, might have committed suicide, as the Mainstream Media and the US Govt. urges you to believe, but there are some who find the coincidences, cameras being off, bones broken indicating he was strangled, guards happening to fall asleep as they were assigned to watch the most famous prisoner in the world, such that that it just might cause reasonable people to doubt the official narrative a little more than the corporate media and prison officials would wants us to doubt.
The same fate might befall Ghislaine and we may never know just what she did. Whether her crimes were confined to herself and Epstein or whether there was a vast network of hebephiles joining in – or – in fairness to her – she is innocent as she claims, something that a trial, if she makes it to trial, might help us determine.

    • Okay. I will just say briefly
    • Now welcome to brickwork here from Indianapolis or from Indiana I grew up there and and the brickworks
    • The brickworks was the Indy 500 right
    • Andre Carson I just wanted to bring up another person who had their phone their phones configured by our good friend are Awan Brothers
    • And a couple of quick news items J Sekulow I believe it's Jordan Sekulow Jordan maybe his son Jay Sekulow is at ACLJ not ACLU ACLJ at the ACl Jay is the more aggressive one than a-c-l-u
    • But we are obviously leveraging off the ACLU case that's still moving ahead with the JTTF
    • But when I came to this location was interesting because immediately I got a marketing phone call
    • And I thought wow that'd be a brilliant way of like geo-locating somebody if you were a survey lien you just keep calling them in when you stop seeing a move wherever you tail them wherever they are you see them whatever
    • And then you see when the uber drops them off and then there if there's only one guy in the Hoover at the end of the street then you go okay well let's figure out what house is that we'll just geo locate him and then boom you have your G4S guy just call the phone number and from some marketing company or whatever and how you got its exact location
    • I don't know why that thought went across my head
    • I get a lot of those calls a lot those marketing calls a lot right after I go to a new location
    • And I just never put two and two together before maybe it's conspiracy theory but G4S
    • And now we know from the ACL u-- lawsuit that that's what they do
    • So anyway moving on to Jay Sekulow it looks like Hina Alvi may be getting extradited
    • I'll believe it when I see it I'll believe mug shots when I see it
    • I'll believe due process of law when I see it
    • I'll believe Steve Wasserman's not controlling this case when I see it
    • When I see a press release I'll believe Channing Phillips is the lawyer is not the lawyer
    • When I see a press press conference on this topic we have perhaps conferences how many have we had for the peepee dossier
    • How many Adam Schiff stand-ups have we done outside the House of Representatives
    • And and how many have we done for censoring Trump about whatever I don't know what we're censoring Trump about with McCain and Graham

    • Now that it's the Pakistanis rather than the Russians for some reason we can't can't follow up we're gonna actually shut that whole subcommittee down move on nothing to see here folks anyway
    • So the CDW story broke this morning
    • CDW is a two-tier distributor for the computer business
    • You might a lot of businesses get their computers directly from CDW--it's nice to have a high level control point I won't say why
    • But it's nice to have a high level control point for computers and all in one place like Omaha Nebraska or just some central location where you can control everything coming and going
    • That's nice to have a control point
    • But anyway CDW one invoice one invoice proved me correct which was 125 different iPhones being shipped to Imran Awan in February 2016
    • Now remember this is someone who is supposed to be ordering secured phones or phones for different Congressmen through secure methods
    • Okay--secure approved NSA phones Okay. not Anthony's trusted staff okay
    • So doping phones for Congress
    • Bringing in people off the street they worked at McDonald's who really aren't off the street that really aren't.. didn't work for McDonald's that are really people from other countries is not a good policy to handle
    • But what it does give us is metadata
    • Because every invoice is not only going to be corroborated with a FedEx truck going to Imran Hawkshead house, it's also going to have or a UPS truck, it's also gonna have a serial number

    • What was the great brainy idea that George Bush had there I don't understand it's almost like he was configuring a spy ring to be in Congress as well as the Senate
    • Now the Senate cut over the Senate cut over from Blackberries to iPhones I think around February 2016
    • So this will be interesting to see all the CWD shipments to Imran's house because this would support my theory that the Senate has already already been doped as well because I don't think Blackberries were discontinued until very recently and in the house if they have at all meaning if if he took those phones and put them in boxes if you took him out of the boxes doped them and then took him to the Verizon and AT&T dealers over at the Senate like the heart office building that wouldn't be good because there's a lot of senators
    • Now that would be compromised
    • So so anyway what I said this morning about Ted Lewis just take the word "your Congressman" or just take any of the the BlackBerry 80 it's gonna be up to 80
    • Now but I think 20 at any given time there's kind of a Rolling Thunder thing that went through Congress the rolling blackberries
    • So I think it's gonna be now the popular press is saying it has 80 people
    • I'm saying it's at least 150 if you go all the way back I think it's gonna be in being in hundreds
    • But we need to publish immediately the CIO which is Kaelin needs to immediately publish all the serial numbers then we need to find out what dealers put what chips in those
    • Because that's gonna be--unwind the whole spy network
    • We need to see every invoice every invoice at CWD CDW government CDW government sent to that location
    • There's got to be a way to do that and that will immediately also unhook the spy ring
    • They bought the house in 2008 I believe
    • So we have 10 addresses now we can look across the 10 or actually 12 at least 12 with Imran addresses
    • I think there they used 63 14 Thomas Drive in Springfield first when they first came in and I think that was used by the dad
    • And then Imran kind of came in and kind of took over that higher-level job 2000-2011 I think the New Dawn Corporation
    • We do still don't know what the new dog preparation is we have a good idea Nanoset was to sell the satellite secrets we still don't know about New Dawn corporation
    • So I'm coming up here at one o'clock on you tree slideshow which is called I don't really know what it's called but it's on the progressive radio network you'll have to google it it's not lead it's called lead stories that's right it's not lead stories le ad l EA D it's le I D lead stories I think it's what it's called
    • And if you remember a week ago I broke a story on her show for the first time called spy ring in Congress where I went through and explained this whole thing
    • Two different shows she gave me two hours to explain this and she's gonna give me another hour today we're gonna go over all this as it unfolds she had a lot of colors and calling last week saying I can't believe the other guy on this is crazy
    • What a difference a week makes
    • Now even to got invoices with people shipping iPhones to his home
    • We're gonna have a whole bunch of invoices with Blackberries trust me
    • And they're gonna go all the way back to 2004
    • First go to back to about 2008 to the Lorton home
    • And then go back in further to the Thomas home at 6314 Thomas
    • Now that we know Imran's exact name we can see his travel and see his passports as well we should publish shows Steve Bannon I'm not gonna chase you I'm not gonna chase you
    • Call me 503 919 0748 not chasin call me if you want to break it open
    • Don't call me if you don't want to break it open just that simple Okay.
    • Let's tell truth of power please on the venmo thing I don't want to promote the venmo thing if you want you
    • Now I put it out there talk amongst yourselves but you want to you would have a whisper network to give the venmo I really appreciate the support but I don't want to be out here going been movin movin mo and then it's GE o w eb b and if spelling the thing it's just its first front for some people who just don't have the money or don't want to support for whatever they're triangulating their private investigators their lawyers they're they just don't want to hear it
    • So I don't want to use any airtime for that but I do appreciate it I did over over here was $14 I over it over here interestingly enough where the kid who sets up Wi-Fi networks for the ports all the ports I'm talking JFK and
    • Now all these people are giving me venmo thank you
    • But for the ports JFK and yesterday I mentioned we're gonna talk about the JFK stuff for Greg Meeks
    • Or two days ago New York five
    • The New York nine chief of staff who turns herself in--she did really turn herself in she said basically I'm not taking the rap for Davis
    • Drane said I'm not taking the rap for Davis you guys want us to leave me holding the bag here and put me and send me down the road for 30 years no
    • HuhUh I'm gonna come forward to the FBI cuz I ain't doing the 30 years that's what drain said she says I'm not doing the 30
    • If you want to look someplace don't look at me look behind me it's it was Davis
    • Now I don't want to really get Davis in trouble either I hate Clintons when they throw people of color in front of the bus
    • They hide behind people of color and they they use people of color as Human shields
    • I don't like that
    • But but again Davis now has an opportunity come forward she I believe was chief of staff for Anthony Weiner New York nine New York nine where the where the SEIU clubhouse was where also Bank of Brooklyn is where all the money laundering is
    • That is going to be the place for the whole spy ring that were
    • I think it's a hundred and fifty days ago I went there to Brooklyn to New York nine it said it's gonna be here
    • So now cabinets a little bit off the SEIU clubhouse is a little bit more in where I did a show where the casino is
    • So I believe the casino that I did a show at is in Brooklyn nine
    • The Bank of Brooklyn is in Brooklyn is in yes in New York nine everything's gonna be New York 9 B
    • {{ 911bs: Are you sure you haven't been watching Brooklyn Nine Nine? }}
    • I even think I said the Flatbush where the SEIU clubhouse was if I didn't give the exact address of the SEIU clubhouse on Flatbush I should have
    • And then there was gonna be there's kind of an annex over next to Hillary for America in the basement there and
    • Now it's torn down but that was the front for Hillary for America but the long term SEIU clubhouse is in Brooklyn 9 on Flatbush Avenue
    • And I just haven't been over there in a while and last time I was there I anyway
    • So let's talk to Utrice Leid and follow her on people's radio network PRN Evelyn Pringle I want us to do a shout out to you for start you have PRN radio
    • And I love the local media and I love people who start local media
    • Because they learn journalism from the street they talked to people at the street level on all different types of things
    • "hey and I want a light I'm walking home I got my bag of groceries I'm a perfect target for somebody for a mugging give me a street light"
    • And you know what I think a camera was there as well camera and a light on that corner and I asked the convenience store folks there from the DPD are I asked him in there like I can't remember it's been so long since the camera was there I can't remember maybe not
    • So much the camera but the light
    • Let's bring the light back for that neighborhood in right by marble hill train station there
    • And Brooklyn Brooklyn Press let's let's get Brooklyn at times I got Harlem times still working I got Bronx Times still working the Bronx story
    • You probably saw their New York a lot of people caught in the New York Times and the two the two guys in the Bronx that we're doing the chop shop
    • I can't remember the two guys but it was a great place for I came from the New York Times article but I quoted it
    • And I so you're right the people who guessed that those were the two where I've been you got it you didn't you nailed it for the Chop Shop
    • It's the New York Times just Google I think it's Lewis one of the guys is 52 years old in the crime ring and the Alpha Jalloh ring Lewis a great spot for crime or something I can't remember the New York Times article right
    • Now but they talked about the 2013 article and those were the two chop shops that I that I was visiting and watching
    • So that can be said now that I'm no longer and doing the rock stuff and let's talk about "truth to power" Utrice's show
    • So I got to turn the sideways to turn off the stream
    • I'll get this some take it but Utrice I want to be on your show
    • {{ 911bs: George (et al) I'm unable to sign up for venmo because I don't have a smartphone. I am rural with no available towers, so I have a VOIP phone as a semi-unreliable landline, which is why I've been reluctant to call you or Jason for the risk of pissing you off with a very bad connection (everyone gets annoyed with me because of this). I have 10Mbps down and 2mbps up, which is well beyond recommended specs for 1 line voip, configured correctly on my end, and yet...I still have problems with it every day w/friends in Colorado and yes it's been subject to MITM interference verified by other party (My stake in this game). AND MOST OF ALL IT DOESN'T DO SMS. I tried to use google voice for sms to sip/email forwarding, and it linked my voip number in the process of adding a new google voice number, but the google voice number did not appear only the voip number. So I removed and tried again, and this time it won't accept the voip number to make the linkage, so as I see it google basically failed on purpose as a plausible deniability ('technical glitch') to ensure I could not use google voice. I've had the same problem with other online banks, including It would seem that all these banking systems are colluding to use the CELLPHONE as an openID in lieu of biochipping people. So, maybe I'll track you down and give you cash. I have 322 dollars+ waiting for you G, because when I signed up for patreon to give 322/mo to CSTT, I assumed you'd get 1/3 to 1/2 }}
  • Day 304. 6 Rao Abbas - Japanese Car Aficionado? - YouTube
    • Eeverybody this is a quick one Rao Abbas R A O A B B A S
    • Somebody sent me some information that said he was actually had some linkages to Japan and brainy blonde was looking at the the flow and found a Mohammed Bari B A R R I E as a car thief in Georgia
    • So if in fact a Mohammed Bari stayed with Imran Awan at one of the Lorton house or the Thomas house Thomas Drive house the 6-3 one for Thomas Drive I think I think the 967 Hawkshead is already world-famous it's a part of American folklore it's like 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
    • But 6314 Thomas drive is now getting right up there in Springfield
    • So I can't remember if Mohammed Bari which many people think is Alpha Jalloh there's also a Mohammed Bari that's stealing cars in Georgia interesting
    • So that may be the South Carolina port connection
    • But then there's this interesting car by a car aficionado it turns out Rao Abbas may have a different name maybe not who knows we don't know but he is running phones in and out of Congress
    • And as I mentioned earlier he might not even know he might think hey my jobs to run phones in and out of Congress I didn't know that they were secure phones I mean you could always say that
    • But if he's found in Kansas City and remember I was saying before about that if you wanted to learn a 12-bar blues song and you didn't have a lot of initiative you could always learn Kansas City the song Kansas City
    • So so that immediately made me think of well that's who did Rao Abbas worked for in Kansas City?
    • Cleaver Cleaver Cleaver not Theodore and remember that you're all too young but not Cleaver I can remember what his first name is the Cleavers the the guy who hired Rao Abbas out in Kansas City
    • Now if that guy has an ax is a Japanese car buying aficionado for 92 Toyota's that have no GPS, that would be interesting
    • Because if Jalloh is out there collecting cars and then having them driving the caravanning then back caravan to midnight not John will be wells caravan to midnight but John but Alpha Jalloh Caravan past midnight and they're driving him back to New York and New Jersey vice versa this kind of cross-country trading thing, you could almost imagine a world where you're stealing it's almost like a funnel you're stealing all these really nice cars in New York and New Jersey around here, some some in Maryland then you're kind of sorting them all out where Imran is
    • That kind of us like Grand Central Station for the cars
    • CIA car dealership along with I think classic motors DC is kind of like
    • The first thing you do first but it's almost like Jeffrey Epstein picking through the girls the Kosovo girls
    • You take the super hot cars and those go to diplomats
    • The way you market those is DC motors motors classic motors DC that's where those go
    • I know it's the sexist thing to say I'm sorry I did not mean to say that I apologize I was I said super hot cars I didn't say super hot women
    • {{ 911bs: Keep in mind Epstain is not dealing in women but girls...teen girls, quite possibly younger }}
    • So those go to classic motors DC
    • The pretty good cars that you could make a lot of money selling in Africa and Asia through Alpha Jalloh you you just drive straight on the container ships the ones that are kind of one level down you put on the auto train and sell either at the you run them out through the port of Jacksonville or the Port of Tampa I think it's gonna be Jacksonville
    • Again, you make those weapons cars those are your weapons carriers
    • Now there's a school of thought that says no the gorge the port of Washington DC if you just are buying D you why would you need to drive them to Florida and get the WP
    • I don't know we're gonna have to look at that but but anyway you got cars going that way
    • So you got cars going in both directions non GPS Toyota's coming in through the Florida car companies A B Auto a company like A B Auto and import owned by Mohammed Ashraf Awan right but then you would have an I'm sorry I haven't slept much and cut up early like three then you have this potential for this Kansas City
    • We need something better than the song Kansas City oh boy somebody just sent me a good thing
    • So I want to help Smedley Butler Smedley Butler is in Kansas City and I want help him out
    • I want to get the the date of arrest for Alpha Jalloh in Kansas City February I think it's gonna be February 12th 2016 but I want to get him the arrest report because there has to be a whole bunch of VIN numbers associated with that and then those have to be coming this way to New York
    • So I want to get him the arrest report and let him kind of follow up and kind of just kick the tires down at whatever dealership is there
    • And just see how big of a fan was he how big of a fan was robbed of a bus of Japanese cars
    • Now there is this car company buying company called MDK in Japan
    • That's bringing these that's working with this car company that's run by a not the a Mohammed Ashraf Awan for A B Auto imports and then there's this that a B grain and rice or a B grain and grain and rice, A B grain and vegetable
    • So that's another interesting company I'm not saying there's anything unusual I'm just saying it's an interesting company but if Rao Abbas ever bought a car from MDK that would be interesting and somebody would send me the Bravo bosses whatever they think his other favorite nickname was even if it's three nicknames even if it looks like I'm sure it's not an alias but whatever whatever his favorite three name nickname was kind of fun to know I'm sure it isn't an alias
    • So no no it wouldn't be an alias
    • So yeah and he worked for Cleaver
    • So that'd be interesting
    • Now I would hate I'm not impugning representative Cleaver saying that there's a car theft ring in Kansas City and Jalloh's a high level fence in between the two and then there is some kind of like go-between for trading the cars between us and us in Japan I'm not saying that maybe there's a West Coast piece to this out of Torrance out of the port of Torrance we'll see Okay. let me look at Okay. I figured out I turn over the phone and then the comments are right by it I can't front
    • So the person who was telling me that you're right I'm the dope
    • McCain ship it wasn't really McCain ship it wasn't wasn't it the anti something anti the Singapore collision is what you're talking about where the sailors are killed the ten sailors are killed that was the anti something
    • It wasn't a McCain ship are you saying McCain served on that ship?
    • McCain served on that ship
    • USS McCain really? Was one of the ships? Hmm interesting I'm not I think the ships
    • I mean if I put was me and I was running a ratline and I'm not saying this is has anything to do with that
    • But if I knew it this all the whole dark weapons thing was being managed using Navy resources and I and and the Navy dark web is the communications network
    • And they the Blackberries were basically spying on everybody in Congress and everybody at the State Department and everybody at CENTCOM, in order to enable it
    • I'm not saying that that's what this is
    • But if I if somebody would like me was out there saying well you need to come forward and you need to drop a few breadcrumbs and then that moves the whole crowd along
    • I would I would collide with them
    • I would aim a ship directly at the captain and I would I would take that ship down
    • And I would I would come as close as I could when I took over the navigation system to the cabins the lighting to the captain's cabin
    • Just as a message that captain--boom we got you bro
    • We can we can put all your folks to sleep we can send out a little Marine unit and vent we can fent the ship
    • Everybody's 90 night and then boom because there's no other way you look at it there's no other way that you're gonna be able to jackknife a ship at sea
    • No that doesn't happen in the United States Navy
    • Not what there's three different there's three different officers rooms there that just look at radar
    • One up on the bridge one down but below decks and then one midships I mean that it's kind of the mezzanine level
    • That's all they do 724 once it's under power there's no "oh oops we all went and played Canasta like they did at the with the Titanic"
    • That doesn't happen on a Navy ship
    • So you don't get the jackknife directly into the captain's bedroom, unless it's a message to everybody on the ship--that be quiet and keep quiet about the ratlines
    • I'm not saying that bears any relationship to this McCain thing or the Fitzgerald thing
    • None whatsoever none whatsoever don't draw any parallels between that
    • I know people are saying till Hudson talked about it
    • I know Hudson is deep uranium
    • So I don't really and he mainly talks to me
    • Hold it somebody said someone had said Okay. Hudson said China as oh yeah yeah the EMP thing yeah
    • Yeah maybe I why I don't know why I would show like a top-secret EMP unless
    • I mean it's just so much easier to get six year old Marines and spent the ship but but if the Chinese wanted to show the EMP they were fine
    • But for me I would just spent the ship with with six Marines and your six Special Forces guys
    • Everybody go nine night and then and then take over
    • The reason why it's so chilling when their captain wakes up he's like what the hell happened how did my ship get hit he wakes up and his ships taking on water and there's ten dead sailors in the water
    • And that's much more chilling the EMP people would remember they would they would like be I mean there were people at battle stations
    • People would remember an EMP hit you'd you'd all of a sudden see all your electronics go out there would be Mayday calls there would be a lot of activity
    • The beautiful thing about fenting when you fent you hit it with a bunch of fentanyl and do it very accretively very slowly
    • So everybody kind of drops off and says well I'm kind of tired and everybody kind of goes out and simultaneously
    • Is Man boom you wake up there's water pouring in there's sailors and the dead sailors in the water and you're like what the hell happened
    • It's a chilling effect it has a very chilling effect on everybody on that ship it's key
    • It becomes like the ghost ship how do they do it how do they do it?
    • Only the Special Forces guys know about the FENTING
    • So maybe regular Navy guys don't know about that stuff it's just the Special Forces
    • This is the David Petraeus stuff
    • Here I'll give you a classic example
    • I read Petraeus his book all in right in his own book he said we took half of the prisoners without firing shot in Iraq or I think it was Afghanistan
    • It was Iraq how do you do that?
    • How do you go into a hostile village with thousands of unfriendlies all armed to the teeth and take out the guy you want without firing a shot if you're not fencing if you're not venting the battlefield how I'll see you doing it just it's just simple logic it's just simple logic
    • It's like it's I bounced the ball and Jax and I grabbed twelve jacks
    • I know and I grabbed the ball back Okay. well I picked up twelve jacks I'm playing jacks it's twelve jacks I mean it's just it's simple it's child's play
    • I mean it's for me it's an obvious Fent
    • So that there's really no logic there other than there's the only logical explanation
    • How do you go in and get half the people without firing a shot?
    • Look at David Petraeus writes in his own book the problem is Petraeus comes up with something like Fenting as a Special Forces technique and now he just over uses it
    • Now he wants to create a civil surveillance system out of it and he wants to teach Fenting to his his group that these G4S privateers right that really opens up a can of worms
    • Because you now have a force on your standing Army where you say ok it's us against them you start calling the people of the country the enemy
    • If you look at the fusion centers they actually call the people on the on the watch list which is basically any enemy that gets in the way like myself
    • You just say that's the enemy
    • These kids are recruited they don't know any different they're being patriotic they say that's the enemy--I got to go in
    • I got to do in it insertion get in there get out whatever the mission is
    • You have to constantly be training in the military to do these things
    • Look at Gladio look at Gladio be look at Gladio see in the US look at any of the Graham Fuller Gladios
    • You have to have a trained force and you have to always be training I mean people say well how do you how do you deliver and wouldn't we see the helicopters and stuff no you can have cars with tailpipes and stuff it if there's all different ways to deliver an aerosol
    • I mean you just you just don't think about it
    • They used to say I mean I don't know if this is true or not but I want to protect Oliver North at all costs protect protect this reputation at all cost okay
    • So if you can help out you can help out
    • Smedley Butler in Kansas City that would be great with a case number and then VIN numbers
    • All caps helps all in no it's not all hail it's all in yep G for us
    • I think it's if anybody has there is a there's a gloop group a gloop
    • There's a group out of Columbus Ohio that keeps track of how many of these G4S security companies there are
    • Dana Priests did a ping in the Washington Post called top secret America and she had to count around 2,000
    • But they were wrapped the private tears[sic] Privateers were rapidly expanding
    • Thank you for all caps
    • The privateers were rapidly expanding and this group out of Columbus headed at 7,000 but if you have DHS people say oh how would you do a covert Army
    • And I said the other day I did a long piece on it I said it's the easiest thing in the world you do all you need is a mailing list and sent out a bunch of DHS credit cards you're done you have two weeks a year where you're doing training and one weekend a month you're done everything else you've already got I just need a DHS credit card
    • Most of this work and and Plus if DynCorp
    • Why is DynCorp teaching surveillance and an active surveillance which is really harassment--why are they teaching it?
    • So they have a eight countervailing force think about it if you were if you had an unlimited budget seven point seven trillion dollars black budget why wouldn't you spend it on that?
    • Why would you spend it on upon a Gladio type program that's the first thing I'd do
    • It's like you don't want these people making decisions on their own that could go against you

Risico: SMERSH Trilogy, Chapter 2

(My apologies for taking so long on this chapter. Work got busy, and I had so many little ideas I wanted to incorporate that I had to take my time working them in with being too confusing. Anyway, enjoy Part 2 of my SMERSH trilogy, one more to go!)
The streets of Hong Kong. Countless people fill the sidewalks, moving along. A man darts out of the crowd and down a quiet alley. A Chinese woman eyes the alley and speaks into her bracelet. The man loses himself in another crowd. He touches his ear as he says (in a British accent): “Repeat. This is brass farthing looking to deposit in the bank. Is the vault open?” The British man looks around desperately, then runs along, only to reveal a Chinese man immediately behind him watching the British man run. The British man arrives at a quiet apartment building and rings one of the bells, running inside when the buzzer sounds. The man walks to a particular door and knocks. Another Chinese man opens the door cautiously: “We thought you’d been compromised. Get in, hurry.” The British man walks past the reception desk into an office. But as he passes, we see a pair of feet sticking out from behind the desk. As the British man walks into another office, the door seals behind him and gas pours in through the vents. We see the other man standing outside the door as we hear the thud of the British man passing out: “Make a sound in the east, then strike in the west.”
Darkness. A big, rusty, metal door creaks open and three men enter the light; one in a lab coat, two in military uniforms. The man with the lab coat points off to the side, “Him.” The other two men open a cell door and drag out a tattered man. It is the British man from Hong Kong. The soldiers follow the lead man down a hallway, around several turns of some dank, nameless place. The man in the lab coat stops and opens a door, which leads into a medical examination room. In the center of the room is an examination table, and standing over the table is Klebb. “Hello 00. You know who I am, so you should have some idea what’s in store.”
The scene cuts to Bond in the shower at home in the midst of his usual routine: there is a lot of steam pouring over the room, but Bond then twists the knob and the water becomes ice cold. Bond steps out, dries off, and does some basic exercises on the floor of his room as May, his housekeeper yells that his breakfast is ready.
Back in the dingy room, the man responds: “I won’t answer any of your questions, so stop wasting your time and mine!”
“Ah, brave and to the point. Don’t I at least get name, rank, and serial number anymore? I miss the protocols of the old days.”
“My name is Lt. Cmmr. David Eden, number-”
“Double oh five.” The man is stunned. “Thank you for confirming, David. I don’t trust intelligence reports, they don’t satisfy me so much as what I can get face-to-face. This is so much more personal, tangible,…visceral.”
The scene revisits Bond, driving on his way to the office. He looks bored, groaning to himself, complaining that there is probably still a week’s worth of paperwork in his inbox. How he wishes something would happen soon.
The other men begin strapping 005 to the table while Klebb pulls down a large round lamp that hangs above it. Attached all along the perimeter of the lamp are several tools, some with bizarrely curved blades, some with electrical cables coming out the end, others are tubes of various colored chemicals. Klebb stands over the trembling 005: “Let me know if it becomes too much, my dear. Unfortunately, I don’t have any questions for you at the moment.”
“But then, why are you doing this?!?”
“Please David, I should have mentioned that I don’t like to be interrupted while I’m working. Now, Nikolai. Number 47.” One of the men pulls an electrical devices and a colored syringe from the side of the lamp.
Bond shuffles through the forms on his desk, clearly looking to procrastinate. He looks up and catches the eye of a colleague opposite him: “3! Where’s 5? Any news on his latest assignment to Singapore?” 003 shrugs his shoulders: “He hasn’t checked in for several days. M will probably get the itch for one of us to follow up sooner or later.”
Back in the dingy room. “One of your colleagues recently dispatched a few of our operatives in the Caribbean and the United States. The problem is, his file is never kept in the usual place like where yours is. He must be on active duty eternally. Our Chief Executioner got a good look at him, but we need a name to go with the face.”
Klebb gently caresses 005′s hair. 005 drained of all will, looks pleadingly to Klebb, who asks: “I want a name.”
The cuts back to Bond at his desk while we hear 005′s response: “Bond, James Bond.”
Cue a sexy title sequence.
G sits at the head of a table, surrounded with men and women; some in military uniform, others in suits. G has called a meeting of all departments of SMERSH. G begins by mentioning SMERSH has successfully reasserted its presence in the world, and despite a few setbacks, has accomplished its initial goals. “That said, although President Velichin engineered this organization’s resurrection, the political importance of deniability has severed any and all oversight beyond anyone in this room. It is crucial that from this point on, that we resist any outside influence. We are now more than an agency within an agency; we are a shadow nation within a nation, and this is our opportunity to be a power unto ourselves.”
One man at the table jumps to his feet: “General, how can we possibly do this? We are still accountable to our country even if we are unsupervised!” G responds that if SMERSH is to have the greatest possible impact, it must embrace its independence. Undeterred, the man worries that SMERSH risks turning itself into a state-sponsored version of SPECTRE and would invite brutal suppression from the leadership. Everyone at the table mumbles concern. G holds up his hands and tries to reassure them that he is no Blofeld. G reminds everyone that SPECTRE’s numerous cyberattacks on Russia’s most prominent businessmen, and attempted assassinations of the president’s closest advisors necessitated SMERSH’s return to defend Russia. But, G warns, most of the original agents of SMERSH were killed on the whims of Stalin and Khrushchev. SMERSH must internalize a lesson of the Cold War that its predecessor failed to appreciate: in espionage, the war is fought in countless small engagements, and losses must be, to some extent, tolerated. A minor setback one day may well lay the groundwork for a larger victory the next. Therefore, a degree of independence is crucial to protect themselves from a fickle political class. “Between the sword that hangs above our heads and the phantoms which threaten to strike from the shadows, we must be like a great fire that dispels the shadows and burns anyone who would touch us carelessly.”
G asks for each department’s representatives to report on past and current operations. Department III (Administration & Finance): Zolata Goldfinger stands and delivers a report on SMERSH’s accounts. She confirms that SMERSH is now financially independent based on the success of operations around the globe. Goldfinger recites a list of how much profit various enterprises netted in different countries throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa. Goldfinger mentions a new opportunity to undermine Britain has come to her attention. She requests permission to asses the sleeper’s idea and provide support if it sounds viable. G grants the request, contingent on Kronsteen’s review. Department IV (Investigations): a uniformed officer stands and reports on the failure of the Thunderstorm Initiative’s operation in the Americas. After investigating the matter, the officer concluded that the agent on detail from Fan Jian Ji, Dr. No, failed to secure classified documents and then fled to the United States, blowing the cover of our sleeper agent, Mr. Big. Although Mr. Big expected the British agent, Dr. No’s failures and the agent’s own cunning disrupted Big’s plans and undermined the operation. G notes that he will voice his displeasure to their Chinese partners personally. Department I (Counterintelligence): Rosa Klebb stands and reports on the information she has obtained from the captured British agent. According to 005, the British agent who killed Mr. Big was James Bond, 007. 007 should not be taken lightly, though he does possess certain weaknesses in his addiction to alcohol and women, and a rejection of authority, likely grounded in a cynicism and exhuastion from his long history in the field. Department II (Operations & Executions): Vladek Kronsteen stands and reports that Grant’s previous observation of Bond make him well-suited to continue following him through whatever his next mission may be. G tells Kronsteen that without knowing Bond’s next mission, especially since the loss of their mole in their Jamaican station, it will be difficult to send Grant after him. Instead, Grant will be kept on stand-by until Bond is sighted. G stops himself, “Better yet, put Grant on intelligence duties. This business of cleaning out jails every full moon is attracting unwanted attention. Have Grant assist Major Goldfinger until told otherwise.” Department V (Judgment): a man stands and reports that all judgments have been executed, except for the matter of the British spy in custody. G replies nonchalantly: “Our name sums up the sentence adequately…death to spies.”
Back at MI6, Bond receives a call from Moneypenny to come up to M’s office. Bond practically leaps from behind his desk, eager for the possibility of action after weeks of paperwork. Bond greets Moneypenny and Tanner, but moves to Moneypenny’s desk. He pulls out a single gardenia from his jacket and offers it to Moneypenny, noting that the flower means good luck and the hope that her call will bring him a little more fun. Tanner yanks the flower out of Bond’s hand, telling him that he has more to do with deciding Bond’s next mission than Moneypenny, and on that note, he would prefer if Bond brought him carnations instead. Moneypenny jokes to Tanner that he will be waiting a long time before he gets anything from James, she can attest to that.
Tanner leads Bond into M’s office. M tells Bond that SMERSH persists in various counterintelligence operations around the world, but nothing on a particularly large scale since he defeated Mr. Big. Tanner adds that unfortunately there isn’t much MI6 can do because SMERSH has popped up in countries hostile to British assistance. Much of the world has become less collaborative, especially since the fallout over Nine Eyes, and Britain’s general geopolitical disengagement over the last few years has made our job that much more difficult. M groans that Special Branch has had to close several stations, including Station G (Greece), Station M (Morocco), and Station I (India). Therefore unless SMERSH decides to be courteous and operate in a country that isn’t trying to handle its intelligence work alone, we may not be able to respond.
Bond asks if there is any update on 005′s work in Singapore. M looks down at his desk. Tanner informs Bond there are not many leads. The last report from 005 was a message to the local station chief in Hong Kong several weeks ago: “Fan Jian Ji”. Bond says that phrase sounds familiar. M says that it is one the Thirty-Six Strategems, specifically “Let the enemy’s own spy sow discord in the enemy camp.” “SMERSH?”, Bond asks. Tanner responds that it is unlikely: “Russia would not operate so deep in China’s sphere. 005 was looking into recent acts of sabotage and the disappearance of high-profile figures in Taiwan and Hong Kong. We think the Chinese have set up their own incarnation of SMERSH operating throughout southeast Asia, only we know nothing about it.”
Bond leans forward: “Sir, I volunteer to look into this. 005 was a good friend.”
M interjects: “Absolutely not, 007. After that business across the pond, and God knows what happened to 005, you are in heightened danger. I am reassigning you until we can be sure SMERSH is not targeting you specifically. Until then, your very presence puts anything near you in jeopardy.” Bond edges his chair back, as though doing so would keep M from catching Bond’s germs. M harrumphs: “Tanner, give him the details of Operation Sherwood.”
Tanner knocks Bond upside the head with the file. “Right. James, we’re sending you to Belfast. It’s no secret that some of the countries within the U.K. have been more vocal lately about strengthening their ties to the Continent, while the rest of Britain takes a step back. Not really our business, except whenever these grumblings get in the news, there is increased chatter picked up out of Russia. More concerning still, when Northern Ireland discussed reunification, there was a massive spike.”
M picks up the briefing: “If Northern Ireland leaves, Ireland would have to completely rebuild their intelligence infrastructure to include the new territory, and we would have to completely reset how we operate there.”
Bond realizes the threat: “And time devoted to reorganizing is the sort of distraction that allows moles to infiltrate a reunified Ireland, or at least harass us from much, much closer.”
M nods and hands Bond a folder: “Precisely. You’re booked on the next plane out. Your contact served as a loyalist during the Troubles in the Royal Ulster Constabulary. A dangerous police force to serve in. Badly injured in a bombing, lost his memory for a time, given less active duties in the Police Service of Northern Ireland. But he’s climbed the ladder quite a bit since then.”
Bond reads the name on the file: “Hugo Drax. Seems agreeable. What are we looking to obtain from him?”
“This won’t be as hopeless a mission as your interview with Tanaka in Japan. But it isn’t far off either. Though we need to prepare for the loss of Northern Ireland, we really have no sense of how much they want to stay friendly. Your job is to lay the groundwork for future intelligence cooperation in the event of reunification, and assess whether the opposition is trying to get its foot in the door. If that is the case…”
“It will be slammed firmly shut.”
Bond flies into Belfast, taking in the scenary as he drives to his hotel. Bond checks in and unpacks his luggage, while also checking the room for bugs. Bond heads back to the lobby, and asks a concierge how to get to a particular pub. While the concierge gives directions, Grants enters the lobby and walks past. In a strange incident of fate, neither man notices the other.
Bond makes his way to the selected pub, grumbling to himself how he’s supposed to make contact and it’s not supposed to draw attention to himself. Bond walks in the door and sits at the bar, under the watchful gaze of many locals at the surrounding tables. The bartender asks Bond what he can get for him. Bond sighs, and orders a shot of Jameson and Bailey’s and a pint of Guinness. The bartender glowers at Bond, muttering: “feckin’ englishmen.” A hard tap on the shoulder tells Bond someone else overheard the drink order. Bond turns around to see himself face to chest with a large man. “Fancy yerself a comedian, eh?” Another in the crowd shouts: “Probably another ambassador of goodwill!” The first man picks Bond off the ground by his shirt, “That’s too bad, because you’ll get none here.” The man pulls one arm back, drammatically preparing to deliver a hard punch. Bond quickly slashes at the inner elbow of the man’s other arms and breaks free. Bond then grabs the man’s arm and twists it around him, dislocating the man’s shoulder. As the man howls in pain, others slowly stand, ready for a brawl.
“That’s enough boys, it’s alright he’s with me.” The crowd stands back apprehensively and Drax steps forward. Drax looks at the man on the floor, who is rubbing his shoulder: “You’re alright Connor, aren’t ya?” Connor gruffly mumbles affirmation and walks back to his table, where there is another man eyeing Bond suspiciously. Drax holds out his hand to Bond, “Nice to meet you, Bond. I was hoping you’d stick to the contact code.”
“Yes, I spent the walk over trying to figure out if there was anything more offensive you could have had me say. How did either of our services agree to that?”
“Oh now, just having a bit of craic. I think your people assumed we were trying to see just how far we could push you, and my people wanted to find out if you’d really do it.” Drax takes Bond’s drinks, dropping the shot glass into the beer, and guzzles it. Bond notices a tattoo on Drax’s forearm. While Bond orders a new drink, Drax mentions it’s from a street gang he belonged to as a boy, and how that was the only way to keep safe growing up in a rough neighborhood. Gesturing to an out of the way table, Bond and Drax sit down. Bond notices the man across from Connor still staring at him, seemingly sizing Bond up. Drax talks about the current state of intelligence coordination and the problem that a reunited Ireland may be less cooperative with England as it reassesses its trust in other “companies”. Drax says they would have to rebuild the entire operation from scratch since Ireland would be incorporating Northern Ireland, yet they would be suspicious of intelligence officers who worked for Britain. All the more reason for Britain to get itself a better reputation amonf the locals. Bond nods, “Sometimes it’s because someone is our friend that we mistrust them more than an enemy.”
Bond notices the man still watching them. Drax looks over and says the man is Risico Ó Gallchobhair, “Former soldier for the Irish National Liberation Army and if you’re to believe what’s written on paper: an officer in An Garda Síochána.”
“Risico? That’s not an Irish name I recognize.”
“He’s only half Irish, the rest is Dutch. His name is supposedly Dutch for ‘a reckless venture’. Perhaps his mother knew all too well what life had in store for him.”
“What sort of life?”
Drax tells Risico’s story. Risico grew up in the same neighborhood as Drax, but they only knew each other through other acquaintances. But he was a bad seed. Risico was feared by everyone, he could wither the boldest man with a stare. Pets often went missing on his block. One night he got into an argument with a local cop at the store. The owner deescalated the situation and made Risico leave, but the next morning, some boys found the cop in the street in front of the police station with his throat cut. Soon after, Risico vanished. No one knew what happened, but no one worried he was gone. Missing, but not missed. A few years later we saw his picture in the paper after a bombing, he had joined the Irish National Liberation Army. A professional killer. After the peace, he joined An Garda Síochána, ascending the ranks as some kind of great investigator. I don’t know what he does, but he reeks. Whenever I see him, I keep a close eye on him. He seems to treat me the same. A silent, uneasy understanding.
Drax tells Bond Risico is bad, and that Risico has been in Belfast more frequently in the past few months. Bond suggests there is some kind of operation in the works. Drax agrees, but asks what the Irish Republic would do. Bond says it may not be Ireland, Risico may have a new employer from “overseas”. Drax looks very serious: “What? I just meant I think he’s still a political assassin. You know, ‘you can take the solider out of the war, but you can’t take the war out of the soldier.’”
Bond looks over at Risico across the bar, then turns back to Drax, but not before taking in a beautiful woman who just sat down at the bar, Goldinger. Bond’s gaze stops on her for a moment before finally facing Drax again: “I think he’s found a new war. Where does he stay when he’s here in Belfast?” Drax tells Bond that he’s had some of his men follow Risico. He recommends Bond stop by his office in a little while and they can go over the report. Glancing back toward Goldfinger, Bond says he’ll find some way to pass the time. Drax says he needs to get back to the office to dig up the report, and Bond should meet him there in an hour.
As Drax leaves, Bond sees Goldfinger at the bar. He walks over and flirts with her, while Risico looks on. Goldfinger introduces herself as “Lyuba”. After a few minutes of flirty banter, Goldfinger steps away to the bathroom. Bond peeks into her bag, looking at her ID, which reads “Lyuba Srebro”.
Risico, suddenly behind Bond as he rifles through Goldfinger’s bag, startles Bond: “I don’t blame you, if someone like her returned my advances, I’d want to make sure I’m not supposed to buy her some minerals instead of a martini. Then again at our age, we should be grateful they look at us at all. Eh, mister…?”
“Bond. James Bond.” Bond looks at Risico dryly, they banter for awhile in a way that is tense, yet playful.
Bond notices Goldfinger coming back from the bathroom: “Now if you’ll excuse me…”
“Fair enough, Mr. Bond. Just be careful, girls like that are death to men like us.” Risico turns and leaves. Goldfinger returns and they continue talking. Bond realizes he must leave, but they plan a date for later that evening.
Bond checks his phone and decides Drax’s station is close enough to walk, and that his hotel isn’t far away either. Bond walks to the station and meets Drax in his office. They read through the report from Risico’s tail. Of all Risico’s destinations, a few stick out as odd and away from his main neighborhoods. Drax pulls up the addresses on his computer: a tailor, an antiques store, a public park, a cafe. Bond thinks. The park might be a place to make drops. “What about the antiques store?” The store is an antiques dealer that opens by appointment only, with a few apartments located above the storefront. Bond notes that it sounds like a safe house, and he’ll check it out later tomorrow evening.
Drax asks: “Why not take a look tonight?”
Smiling, Bond replies: “I’m afraid I’ve already made an appointment elsewhere.”
On the walk back to the hotel, Bond feels a pang of uneasiness. The hair on the back of his neck stands up, his sixth sense tingles. Someone is following him. Bond veers off his planned path, checking a map in his phone for a larger place that might have a crowd. He sees a plaza and memorial, perfect. He changes course, noticing two men behind him now, but as he turns his head forward again, he sees another man a block to his left keeping pace. Bond’s pace quickens.
When Bond arrives at the plaza, he curses to himself when he sees it is under construction; there is no crowd he can lose himself. At that moment, Bond sees he is surrounded by five men, including Risico. “Mr. Bond. I think we should have a talk.”
“It looks like you’re busy entertaining these other lads. Maybe I should come back another time.” Bond backs away into one of the men. He swivels around and punches him. The other men then rush Bond. Bond puts up a good fight, but Risico and his men get the upper hand. Before they can subdue Bond however, a hand with a pipe drops down on one of the men. As he falls, our view pans up to reveal Grant joining the fight. Bond looks at Grant, seeming to recognize him, but unable to place him. The fight continues with Bond and Grant. While Bond knocks out another man, Grant breaks Risico’s arm. Arg! You bastard, may a cat eat you and the devil eat the cat!”. While Grant engages another of the men, Risico runs away. When Bond and Grant are the last men standing, Bond raises his hand to thank Grant for his help. However Grant pulls a large knife from his boot and rushes Bond. Bond does his best to resist, but he is unable to overpower Grant. Bond reaches for a loose brick from the construction pile and smashes into Grant’s head. Grant falls backward, stunned but conscious. At the sound of sirens in the distance, Bond runs until he reaches his hotel.
Bond shakes off the attack, changes his clothes, and meets Goldfinger for dinner. When Goldfinger asks Bond what brings him to Ireland, he responds that he is visiting a cousin, and trying to resecure some old family investments after a split in the family. Goldfinger says she understands, she came to Ireland to find new opportunities for her company. After dinner, Bond takes her back to his hotel. During the night, Goldfinger gets up and opens Bond’s computer, downloading his encrypted files before leaving. Bond gets up and turns off the computer’s decoy hard drive, looks through recent keystrokes and sees that Goldfinger tried to copy then delete his files on Drax and SMERSH. Bond calls Tanner and tells him about the earlier brawl and the attempted data theft. He also asks for information on “Lyuba” and sends photos he secretly took at the bar. Tanner responds that he’ll run the photos through their database, but for more information on Drax, Bond should consult the Americans as most of their intel came from the CIA. As far as Risico, everything they have on him is on the up-and-up except for Drax’s reports.
Bond calls Felix, asking about the CIA’s files on Drax and why SMERSH would want his file. Felix says it could mean Drax is a mole or is being targeted for assassination. Felix adds that from what the U.S. has gathered, Drax seems clean but underwent a serious personality change after the bombing that also gave him slight amnesia. Bond asks if that is unusual. Felix says that based on the extent of the brain damage Drax sustained, it wasn’t unheard of for a victim to experience a personality change. Like the story of Phineas Gage. Bond asks for the location of Drax’s relatives. Felix replies that all known relatives and associates died within a year of the accident. Bond asks for information on the relatives, including any pictures of Drax before the bombing. Felix says there isn’t much. Every known connection to Drax is dead under seemingly normal circumstances, and all possessions were either destroyed or kept in storage by the Royal Ulster Constabulary. Bond wonders if maybe that was par for the course given how Drax grew up in a gang. Felix asks what gang. Bond tells Felix the same story Drax told him, and describes the tattoo. After a pause, Felix tells Bond that the gang that uses that symbol didn’t exist in that part of Northern Ireland until 10 years ago.
The next night, Bond looks into Drax’s tip, finding an abandoned safe house in the old antique shop. It is an old, derelict building, but shows some signs of recent use. Bond breaks in and searches the building. There are a number of desks, but judging from the dust voids, the computers were removed recently. There are a few filing cabinets, but when Bond breaks them open, he finds police files of decades-old cases. There is a creak in a distant floorboard. Bond’s head snaps in the direction he thinks the sound originated. Quietly, Bond moves in the direction of the sound, opening doors cautiously. Bond enters an office where a number of drawers are still locked. He lets go of the handle and looks at the ceiling in thought just as a cable is flung over his head and pulls back violently. Bond struggles but can’t see his attacker in the darkness. Bond’s arms flail for a light switch, which he finally finds. He flips the switch and finds Grant behind him. Bond rasply screams “WHO ARE YOU?!?” as he passes out.
Bond stirs, very groggy. As he clears the cobwebs from his head, Bond hears voices outside, and sees police assembling en masse. The police storm the building and try to shoot Bond. Bond scrambles to escape, using non-lethal force against any officer he encounters. Bond injures one officer and asks why they’re here. Risico stands over both and says they received a tip that a spy was building bombs here. Risico introduces himself as head of a joint Ireland-Northern Ireland task force dedicated to uproot terrorists and spies. Risico says that when he met Bond in the bar for the first time he thought Bond was the opposition; one mole cultivating another. But changed his mind when he saw that Bond didn’t kill any of us men back at the construction site in order to escape. Bond asks about Drax. Risico tells Bond they have a lot to talk about.
In the car ride to the station, Risico says that their intelligence indicated a major espionage figure was coming to Belfast to meet a contact. Bond utters: “Lyuba”.
Risico nods: “There has been a lot of chatter between Britain, Ireland, and America. Apparently, you said something to the Americans that made them doubt everything they knew about Drax.”
“He had a tattoo from his days in a street gang that didn’t exist while he was there.”
“Ugh, Hugo hated tattoos. He would tell me what his mother would say if he got one, defacing his body and such. Anyway, the CIA called your man, M, to say they thought you might be in trouble, talking to the wrong person. By then, your colleague Tanner was already briefing M about your photos.”
“It’s the most basic counterintelligence. You never think you’re going to fall for a honeytrap, but-”
“James, Lyuba wasn’t just some honeytrap, she was the honey-jackpot.” Risico hands Bond a file. “Meet Zolata Golfinger, SMERSH’s treasurer.” Bond’s eyes go wide. Risico appreciates Bond’s reaction: “My thoughts exactly. If she’s here, SMERSH has something big planned to put a wedge between our countries; probably hoping we’ll be more sympathetic to them. Not bloody likely. It’s ironic, they hoped to undermine Irish-British intelligence-sharing, and yet they’ve only managed to strengthen our bond. We’re going to root out the whole lot: Goldfinger, that behemoth she brought with her, and Drax’s imposter.”
Bond notices Risico said those last words with added bitterness. “Who is Drax really then?”
Risico catches himself. “We’re almost at HQ. I’ll explain there.”
The rest of the ride is silent. Once in Risico’s office, Risico says he doesn’t know who “Drax” is. He reveals that he knew Drax over the course of years of coordinated police work. After his accident, Drax didn’t fully recognize him, even after his amnesia passed. He remembered their general working relationship but that was it. Skeptical, Bond points out that it’s common for amnesiacs to lose some small memories even when they recover from a traumatic brain injury. A flash of anger passes across Risico’s face: “I am not a small memory.” Bond, confused and uncertain of his offense, says he doesn’t understand. Risico explains that he and the real Drax were secretly lovers. They hid it from their families who were devoutly religious, but eventually told them not long before the accident, only to find how supportive their families were. When the bombing happened, Drax’s mother came back from the hospital and told Risico that the man in the bed was not her son. She tried to look past his amnesia and scars, but insisted there was a completely different man there. Before Risico could see for himself, Drax’s other family and friends suddenly died. Risico didn’t know what was happening, he did his best to investigate each death, but Drax’s bureau called him off. In the meantime, Risico decided to keep his relationship a secret from anyone else until he knew more, especially since knowing Drax seemed to carry a death warrant.
“What do you think happened to the real Drax?”, Bond asks.
Risico’s eyes water slightly at the thought. “I think he died in the bombing. I think these people targeted him and switched his dead body with this other man. This double. I read the report of every dead body found since it happened, hoping I could at least know where he went, and have that closure. I never found him.”
“It’s time we find some answers. We must have enough now that we can search his office.”
“Right. Let’s go.”
At Drax’s station, a swarm of police surge into the building and immediately begin to pour through files and check computers, forcing back any attempts to resist them. Bond and Risico then search Drax’s office where he finds an encrypted file that intrigues him. He can’t break it until Risico remarks on the pictures of Drax in the office, all of which prominently display the tattoo that outed him. Bond asks what the name of the gang was. Risico answers they were called the “Whyos”, a callback to an old American street gang from the 19th century. Bond tries “whyos” as a password. Success! Inside they find files for a series of bombings all over Ireland that will be connected to England’s Special Branch. Risico suggests they split up and search those sites right away. He gives Bond his card with his number and tells him to start with that storefront they found him in.
Bond arrives at the antique store and resumes the search Grant interrupted earlier. However whatever was in the locked drawers before is gone. Drax and some henchmen enter and subdue Bond. Bond wakes up in a new building, tied to a chair. Drax taunts Bond’s accidental successes, telling Bond that he seems to get ahead more on luck than actual skill. Either way, Bond’s luck has finally run out. Grant enters the room. “Ah, and I believe you’ve met Mr. Grant. He’s told me a lot about you. It seems you owe him your life after he saved it in the Caribbean not too long ago.” Drax explains how the bombings are planned and tortures Bond for whatever information he has about the operation.
Grant grabs Drax’s shoulder, forcefully spinning him around: “Master Kronsteen would not appreciate you revealing the plans he so carefully prepared.”
“If he cares so much, he can come over here and put his arse on the line. Feckin’ armchair operatives. Who underwent the plastic surgery? Who studied Drax’s voice and mannerisms? Two years of my life studying to sleepwalk through another man’s life waiting for HIS call!!! I knew one day you would need me. Did I blackmail you for more money? No! All I asked for was the chance to move up when this was all over. That and some damned respect! This is MY operation. You and Kronsteen and Goldfinger, are just here to watch. If you don’t like it, then make yourself useful and take him to site 4: the church next to the station.”
Grant walks behind Bond and chops him in the back of the neck, knocking him unconscious.
Bond comes to, tied up in one of the buildings Drax plans to bomb. Grant stands over him. “Unfortunately Mr. O-O-7, we cannot fight one on one. After watching you defeat No and Big, I had hoped to put you down myself, like the man who shoots his neighbor’s dog when he goes onto his property.”
“Yes, it’s a shame.”
Before he leaves, Grant explains when Bond can expect the blast: 19:16, as an homage to the Easter Rising and a symbol of new Troubles to come.
The minutes tick by until Bond hears Risico and calls to him. Risico unties Bond. Bond shouts they need to evacuate several buildings, but Risico tells Bond that in the night, MI6 and the Irish Directorate of Military Intelligence located and disarmed the bombs, replanting a few at the antique shop, well away from anywhere civilians might be harmed. Risico remarks Bond actually has a good view of the building through the window. Bond opens the window and peers out, where he sees Drax stand on the upper balcony of one of the apartments, waiting to survey the skyline and its imminent destruction. With seconds to go before the blast, Drax turns in Bond’s direction and smiles evilly. Bond gestures for Risico, who steps into Drax’s view. Drax is very confused until he starts to hear the beeping of the bomb that’s right under his feet. He looks back at Bond in panic and rage, while Bond looks back with the same cruel smirk from the moment in Casino Royale when the airplane bomber blew himself up.
Bond (well-dressed) walks up to a hotel door and knocks. Goldfinger answers the door. A quick second of shock registers on her face, but it dissipates as she grabs a bag and leaves with Bond for another dinner date. On the walk down to the hotel lobby, they are surrounded by Risico and a SWAT team. Bond confronts Goldfinger and takes her bag, finding several thumb drives and assorted surveillance gear. Risico steps up to Goldfinger with a set of handcuffs: “Miss Goldfinger, I’m afraid we’re closing your account here in Ireland. It’s no longer a bear market.”
G sits at his desk when he hears a commotion outside his office. The door swings open and several uniformed men walk in. Outraged, G asks what is happening. Suddenly, the uniformed men part and President Velichin walks in. “President Velichin! I…” Velichin cuts him off: “You saw SMERSH as a nation unto itself. Consider this a coup.”
G protests indignantly: “You can’t remove me, I built SMERSH from the ashes; it would crumble without me!”
An unseen voice calmly responds: “The true test of a great leader is that the organization should be able to function flawlessly in his absence. Mine is carrying out 36 counterintelligence operations while I stand here. 35 have a high probability for success. But you shouldn’t worry, I’m not replacing you, merely…supervising you.”
Nervous, G asks: “Who is that?”
Velichin answers: “Someone who will put your house in order. (a man (Donnie Yen) enters) Xiao Lam, Secretary-Director of Fan Jian Ji.”
Lam stares coldly into G’s eyes. “We should begin as soon as possible, general. Give me the file on James Bond.”
Mid-credits scene: Risico visits Bond in the hospital, offers information as thanks for his help: “Tell me James, are you familiar with a man named Kronsteen?” Bond smiles. Fade to black.
