FORENSIC ANALYSIS OF ‘WISCONSINGATE’ IN RELATION TO WANTAGATE
CRIMINAL TAX FABRICATIONS AGAINST LEO WANTA EXPOSED
Monday 6 August 2007 13:51
EXPLOSIVE DIMENSION OF THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS
FALSE TAX ACCOUNTING, DUPLICATION, DECEPTION, PERJURY, SUBORNATION OF PERJURY, PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT
IMPORTANT: This report contains damning information about the fabrications and deceptions which have been used to sustain the entrapment of Ambassador Leo Emil Wanta, exposing them comprehensively. It is intended both for immediate information, given the Wisconsin dimension of the crisis, but also as a permanent record of the Wisconsin Department of Revenue's fabrications.
HOWEVER, given that the Wanta monies sent over by the Bank of England and held with Bank of New York Mellon have NOT been paid to the securities account of AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc., with Morgan Stanley in Citibank, New York, as should have occurred, the funds have once again been exploited/deployed inter alia to induce the latest artificial stock market 'bounce', so that parties associated with the closed central banking settlement system and the US Federal Reserve, are reaping huge profits from these manipulations. You are therefore reminded of the importance of our report dated 30th July 2007, which please review if you have not yet done so.
This 'Wisconsingate' analysis should NOT divert your attention from the corrupt US official financial and banking sector manipulations and the continuation of the scandalous diversion of Ambassador Wanta's $4.5 trillion Settlement funds. The latest charade and diversion has been accompanied by the usual lies and diversionary 'preparing to settle' verbiage, to which no attention should be paid. No-one, anywhere, can be paid ON THE BOOKS prior to the Ambassador. Please see the ARCHIVE for the 30th July report. There are of course dimensions of the countermeasures being taken 24/7 against this serial criminality which cannot be openly discussed, but which provide reassurance.

‘WISCONSINGATE’ IS DYNAMITE, NOT JUST A ‘SMOKING GUN’
While the whole world watches, without understanding, the ‘train wreck’ that we predicted, brought about by the intransigence of senior US office-holders and their organised crime and intelligence cohorts, and while frantic efforts continue behind the scenes to prevent the ‘train wreck’ becoming a global financial and economic catastrophe (which for those concerned means, first and foremost, scrambling onto the immunity bandwagon), we can fruitfully review again a crucial dimension of Wantagate which for convenience can be dubbed ‘Wisconsingate’.
This is timely, as there are now evolving indications of an attempt to roll ‘Wisconsingate’ into the overall ‘Settlement’, or at least to draw the fangs of what, for the criminal intelligence conspirators, probably represents much the most dangerous component of their ‘Day of Reckoning’ – given that it embraces ‘wild card’ characteristics that they never anticipated and which they cannot control. In order to tease out the dynamite buried within ‘Wisconsingate’, it is necessary to go into somewhat tiresome detail so as to explain how the Wisconsin Tax Gestapo's long-term State tax fabrications and felonies committed against Ambassador Leo Wanta were (and continue to be) sustained: so we ask for your patience (which will be rewarded!).
In brief, this dimension of Wantagate covers the criminal DUPLICATION and fabrication of Wisconsin State civil tax assessments and a ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’, providing the ongoing unlawful pretext for taking Leo Wanta down in 1993 – thereby enabling organised criminal cadres inside and beyond the US intelligence structures to divert and exploit Leo Wanta’s financial assets, accumulated in his Title 18, Section 6 USG corporations with the full knowledge of the US Government at all times.
EXTENDED NOTE ON THE ‘DUPLICATION’ MODUS OPERANDI
At the end of this analysis, the Editor appends an Extended Note on DUPLICATION, showing that this standard LENINIST methodology is the key to understanding the machinations of the US Illuminati’s crumbling New Underworld Order, and of why, for instance, the TWIN Towers and the TWIN Cities of Minneapolis-St Paul were chosen for targeting (1).
Yes, these people are out of their minds. They are in the mind of Lenin, who perfected the ‘Black’ art of ‘DUPLICATION’ – a sick mind indistinguishable from the mind of Lucifer. We will see in the present analysis how DUPLICATION is the essence of the OBFUSCATION operations conducted against Ambassador Wanta by the Leninist Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
It is no coincidence that ‘The Communist Manual of Instructions on Psychopolitical Warfare’, exposed by Kenneth Goff, a.k.a. John Keats, a former active and dues-paying Wisconsin (CPUSA) Communist (2) who operated in Milwaukee, WI, in the 1930s, contained the following injunction:
‘The Communist agent skilled in economics has as his task the suborning of tax agencies and their personnel to create the maximum disturbance and chaos’.
WISCONSIN TAX AGENT: ‘THINGS ARE JIVING HERE’
So when a Wisconsin Department of Revenue agent – who was telephoned by the Editor on 7th May 2007 at 7.30pm London time [608-266 8122] to discuss the Department’s tax fabrications against Leo Wanta – suddenly blurted out ‘Things are jiving here’, the Editor was reminded of this injunction, promulgated later by one of the most evil men who ever lived, Lavrentii Beria (Stalin’s MVD Police Chief), and then of the familiar British phrase: ‘taste of your own medicine’.
For it is no exaggeration to say that the tables have been turned on the suborned Wisconsin State tax authorities, which are now, as a consequence of their criminal operations against Ambassador Wanta for the past 14 years, confronted with ‘the maximum disturbance and chaos’.
Under President Reagan’s Executive Order 12333, US intelligence operatives briefed to carry out tasks on behalf of the United States were permitted to establish wholly-owned corporations for that purpose which could enter into contracts with intelligence and other components of the US official structures. Leo Wanta conducted extensive Financial Warfare and other intelligence operations in accordance with three separate Executive Orders promulgated by President Ronald Reagan, whom he briefed and from whom he took orders directly, in a personal capacity. Papers recently released by the Ronald Reagan Library, to be presented in a 48-page booklet that will be published with the forthcoming huge Wantagate issue of International Currency Review, will provide documentary proof of this reality (3).
HANDLERS ABANDON THEIR DISINFORMATION STOOGES
All the financial transactions conducted by Leo Emil Wanta were reported transparently to the appropriate US Government authorities, so that intermittent loose talk about Leo Wanta operating secret bank accounts represents no more than the foul dregs of the discredited disinformation campaign mounted by the deceitful CIA as it has fought a losing battle to counteract the alarming consequences of the exposure of its sustained lie that Leo Wanta was dead – the purpose of that lie having been that, if he was dead, then the corrupt banks in question, all the co-conspirators, intelligence community crooks and their organised criminal associates, could ‘help themselves’ to the leveraged external bonanza to be derived through high-yield investment programmes and arbitrage (which is illegal in the United States) from the financial assets of which, as of this date, Ambassador Leo Wanta remains the sole owner and Principal.
This fact is today universally recognised, except by a few straggling disinformation operatives whose handlers have left them ‘dangling’ because obviously the handlers themselves cannot admit that their clients have been deceived all along.
U.S. JUDGE GERALD BRUCE LEE’S FORMAL GUIDANCE TO LEO WANTA
On 15th April 2004, His Honor Gerald Bruce Lee, United States District Judge, handed down a Memorandum Opinion [Civil Action Number 02-1363-A] which confirmed that the Ambassador is entitled and obligated to procure the repatriation of his external funds and to pay tax on them as required under US law. Specifically, Judge Lee pronounced that:
‘Plaintiff’s sole remedy in this matter is to proceed with the liquidation of the corporations and report these transactions to the Internal Revenue Service in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code and then challenge the assessment of any taxes in a refund proceeding. See Int’l Lotto Fund, 20 F 3d at 591’ (4)
PAULSON HIJACKED THE MAY 2006 WANTA SETTLEMENT
In May 2006, as repeatedly summarised in these reports, a compromise accord was signed off at the highest levels of the US Government’s Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches, providing that a one-off lump sum of $4.5 trillion is payable to the Ambassador.
This payment was paid to him as beneficiary and should have been transferred in June 2006, but was instead illegally hijacked by the new US Treasury Secretary, Henry M. Paulson Jr., the former Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs, who arranged for retention by himself of sole signatory power over the $4.5 trillion tagged and earmarked in the name of Ambassador Wanta and his Commonwealth of Virginia-based corporation, AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc.
On the basis of contemporaneous outline investigative information procured as we go along, we have traced the innumerable ploys, deceptions and corrupt transactions which have continued back-to-back ever since – predicting that if this behaviour continued, the world would sooner or later face an unprecedented financial crisis; and that is precisely what has happened, or is in the process of happening. The current state of affairs, to the best of our knowledge, is that Bank of New York Mellon is engaged in securities fraud through being in breach of the previously cited NASD and SEC regulations [repeated in a further Note at the foot of this report]; while the six ‘levy’ banks, which have encumbered their reserves inter alia to guarantee payment to the Ambassador of his $4.5 trillion Settlement, are themselves in grave danger of becoming co-conspirators in the same securities frauds as Bank of New York Mellon.
Earlier this year, the Editor mentioned to the Ambassador that he thought there would be a horrendous global financial crisis this year, an assessment to which Leo Wanta replied: ‘So do I’.
DUPLICATION, OFF-BALANCE SHEET, ON-BALANCE SHEET…
In our reports dated 27th and 30th July 2007, we deconstructed, in general terms, the off-balance sheet vs. on-balance sheet dimension (Thesis, Antithesis), which is at the core of this crisis, and which has necessitated the further affirmation (by the World Court) of immunities for a substantial number of vulnerable financial participants and operatives, who may imagine that they will escape the imprisonment consequences of their thievery and corrupt financial transactions.
The likelihood is that the reputed immunities will cover some, but far from all, corrupt transactions, and will probably not cover any of the illegal operations that have taken place since May 2006. Nor will ‘immunities’ absolve those concerned from the necessity of paying tax and penalties on their illegally unreported accruals and declaring ‘source of funds’, which they cannot do.
At all events, there is currently claimed to be yet another ‘immunities scramble’, so that those US operatives whose transactions and contracts are based originally upon the diversion and theft of Wanta assets (as opposed to the deliberately duplicated $27.5 trillion raised in 1989-92 from 200+ international banks) can sleep marginally better at night, or so they may imagine.
But while, as a consequence of ‘immunities’, these people may manage to escape lengthy jail terms for tax evasion, it is reiterated to us that they will likely not escape the necessity of disgorging and paying tax on the fiat money assets they control, and of declaring ‘source of funds’. Obviously, the prospect of this ‘Day of Reckoning’ has fuelled the lengthy rearguard resistance to the Leo Wanta Settlement – heightening, as time has been wasted, the probability of a global financial calamity as these people place their own interests ahead of the stability of the world financial economy.
DELIBERATE DUPLICATION TO OBFUSCATE ‘SOURCE OF FUNDS’
The original purpose of the duplicating of Leo Wanta’s $27.5 trillion was to obfuscate ‘source of funds’. Illegally generated ‘fiat money’ assets cannot be transferred on-balance sheet in any bona fide manner, even by means of the huge borrowings from banks that are taking place, since such loans are having to be serviced by illegal, untaxed, off-balance sheet ‘fiat money’ assets. There is also the point that arbitrage is illegal in the United States, although this is not the case abroad.
BRIEF OUTLINE OF EVENTS LEADING TO WISCONSINGATE
Given the overall situation, it may seem strange to some that we refer back from time to time to the Wisconsin dimension of Wantagate. However the Wisconsin dimension is a central component and a deadly ‘wild card’ lever of the crisis, as its unravelling has exposed precisely how the criminalist operatives procured the removal of Leo Emil Wanta from the scene, following the assassination of his Chinese ‘partner’ in Singapore, Howe Kwong Kok. He died in 1992 after ingesting rat poison shortly after a visit there by former President George H. W. Bush Sr., the ex-Director of Central Intelligence (CIA) and continuing head of Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst (DVD) in North America.
Working for the DVD, Swiss agents then attempted to murder Leo Wanta himself in the filthy Swiss dungeon into which he was thrown on 7th July 1993. They tried this by giving him tainted cheese, which he does not eat. Unfortunately a fellow prisoner died after consuming Leo’s cheese. A Swiss prison doctor then advised Leo what was and what was not safe to eat, informing him that the Swiss were in the habit of murdering political and financial targets in that ‘facility’.
Later, while he languished in the US GULAG, at least four attempts were made to murder Leo Wanta, the most notorious being the crude attempt on his life in a washroom at the Kettle Moraine Department of Corrections establishment. A Deputy Sheriff drove up to Kettle Moraine, changed into prisoners’ clothes, and attempted to murder Leo Wanta in the washroom.
When the Deputy Sheriff failed in this brutal attempt, he fled back into the prison administration area, changed back into his official garb, and drove off in his County Car.
FAILED MURDER ATTEMPTS BECOME CIA LIE THAT HE WAS DEAD
It is possible, given compartmentalisation, that CIA disinformation cadres thought that one of these attempts on Leo’s life had been 'successful'. At all events, given that CIA operatives are incapable(save for a few ‘sparse ‘White Hats’) to tell the difference between truth and falsehood, internal reports about the attempts made to murder Leo were obfuscated and converted into the sustained lie that Leo was dead, which the cadres ‘needed’ in order to ‘justify’ the ransacking of his Title 18, Section 6 financial assets, on which a huge proportion of the derivatives overhang is based.
When Leo was illegally arrested (without a warrant) in Switzerland, the 'basis' for his arrest was asserted to be a demand for unpaid Wisconsin State tax, even though Leo Wanta was a diplomat and Wisconsin has no jurisdiction beyond its State borders.
Moreover the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, used by the Clinton White House as the ‘cutout’ enforcement mechanism to ‘embed’ Leo’s ‘takedown’, knew all along that Leo Wanta is a diplomat – as is evident from a letter dated 18th February 1999 addressed to Attorney Jan Morton Heger (for Wanta) signed by Angela Dunlap, Revenue Agent, which reads:
‘Dear Attorney Heger: The Department of Revenue has no record of a delinquent tax account issued to Lee E. Wanta, Social Security Number [correctly stated but redacted here for security reasons] Federal Identification Number DPP#04362’ (5).
DPP stands for : DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT. A diplomat enjoys special privileges, including freedom from arrest. A State of the United States has no jurisdiction outside the United States, let alone warrantless jurisdiction to procure the arrest of a diplomat abroad.
THE STEALING OF WANTA’S DIPLOMATIC BRIEFCASE
When Leo Wanta was illegally arrested in Switzerland, his sealed diplomatic briefcase was removed from him. It contained 18 high-value US Treasury instruments worth a total of $18 billion face value. Those instruments were to have been applied by Leo Wanta, as Chairman-designate of the Somali Central Bank, to bolster the financial position of the institution, in the context of a White House-mandated project for the dollarisation of Somalia, which was then to have been brought into the 20th century and equipped with new infrastructure (ports, airports, highways, hospitals, etc).
Following an intervention by the late Prime Minister of Israel, Yizhak Rabin (who was subsequently murdered for his pains), Leo Wanta was released from the Swiss DVD dungeon and conveyed in shackles to the airport whence he was flown to New York, appearing before United States District Judge Allyce Ross.
During the hearing, the Judge became aware of the contents of Leo Wanta’s briefcase and asked a question about one or more of the high-value US Treasury instruments contained therein. As soon as she had asked this question, the Assistant US Attorney jumped up and informed the Judge that he was now withdrawing all the counts that he had brought against the Ambassador.
Whereupon Judge Allyce Ross informed the Ambassador that he was free to leave her Court. He was then re-arrested on the courtroom steps by two friendly New York police officials without a warrant, who stated that they were ‘doing the State of Wisconsin a favour’. Thrown back into jail, he was later extradited illegally to Wisconsin, where his first painful experience was having to be strip-searched in the December snow.
This great American patriot would have been forgiven for wondering whether in fact he had been transported to the Soviet Siberian GULAG.
‘RETURN OF SEARCH WARRANT’ OMITS THE $18 BILLION TREASURIES
On 11th March 1994, a certain Dennis M. Mengelt. Special Agent, Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation, produced and signed a document entitled ‘Return of Search Warrant’ (6), which listed the contents of Leo Emil Wanta’s briefcase, but OMITTED any reference to the 18 high-value US Treasury instruments. Leo Wanta’s briefcase has never been returned to him – for the obvious reason that if it were to be returned, it would have to contain the 18 high-value American Treasury instruments. Absent any other explanation, it is presumed that these US Government assets, with an aggregate face value of $18 billion, have been stolen and illegally deployed at corrupt banks abroad, as collateral for unreported hypothecation and financial leveraging operations.
In April 2006, this Editor was authorised, equipped with a limited Power of Attorney, to attend the Lloyds TSB branch in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, on behalf of the Ambassador, to enquire as to the safe custody and management of accounts associated with Title 18, Section 6 corporations owned by Leo Wanta, which were held there under the apparent control of Leo's former Attorney, mentioned above, Jan Morton Heger. The Editor found that these accounts had been placed in the name of Jan Morton Heger personally.
THE EDITOR’S EARLIER INVESTIGATIONS AS A JOURNALIST
Following several years of investigations, the Editor acquired sufficient information to convince him that Leo Wanta had been the victim of a US intelligence frame-up, the purpose having been to put him out of the way so that the large financial assets of which he is the sole Principal, could be ransacked. The Editor also became convinced that the generic reason for the paranoia that afflicts affected US cadres at all levels – manifested by threats, excessive secrecy, orders ‘not to testify’, and other tell-tale symptoms of mental oppression among people involved or associated with this criminality, or who have found themselves in the unfortunate position of having family members so associated – was an obsessive fear of exposure.
This was confirmed when one US operative uttered the memorable phrase: ‘None of this must ever come out, you understand’. Naturally, as an investigative journalist, the Editor asked himself why this should be the case, concluding that what concerned all these people must necessarily be fear of exposure – and that if this was so, then they must all be involved, whether aware of it or not, in a vast cover-up of illegality. And this straightforward assessment has been amply borne out by what Lenin would have called ‘the unrolling of events’.
After several meetings with the Ambassador, who received the Editor courteously and exhibited none of these symptoms, the Editor met Mr Steven D. Goodwin, a lawyer for Leo Wanta based in Richmond, VA, in March 2005. Steven Goodwin advised the Editor that an arrangement had been negotiated with the Wisconsin State Department of Corrections whereby if a certain sum of money (ostensibly representing the State tax ‘owed’ plus accruals, as well as certain other expenses) was paid, the Wisconsin Department of Corrections would ask Judge Michael B. Torphy Jr., who had taken Leo’s case, whether he would have any objection to Leo Wanta’s (illegal) probation, which was to have continued until 28th November 2010, being terminated ‘early’. (The Judge later duly signified, on a copy of a letter dated 28th July 2005 written to this effect by State Probation Agent Michelle Riel, that he had ‘No Objection’ (7). On the basis of this assertion, the former Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, Matthew J. Frank, signed a Discharge Order proclaiming that ‘effective November 14, 2005, Leo E Wanta is discharged absolutely’) (8).
On 2nd March 2001, the Parole Commission of the State of Wisconsin had decreed that Leo Wanta should be released from jail in the local GULAG, ‘to parole supervision… on or after 6/20/01’. The Ambassador had been held illegally in prison and thereafter sentenced to a jail term following a kangaroo court hearing in May 1995 at which the court, presided over by Judge Michael B. Torphy Jr., was lied to and was fed perjured evidence by the State Assistant Attorney General, Mr Douglas Haag and James E. Doyle, now Governor of Wisconsin, who was serving as Attorney General under former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, an associate of President Clinton. Mr Thompson later resurfaced in the Cabinet of George W. Bush II, and earlier this year obtained Secret Service protection after announcing that he would be running for President in the forthcoming election.
PERJURED EVIDENCE AND LIES FED TO JUDGE TORPHY’S COURT
The perjured evidence presented before Judge Torphy’s court included distortions perpetrated by Mr John A Hartingh, Section Chief, Information Resources Section, Information Resources Division, Federal Bureau of Investigation, in a letter dated 8th September 1995 to Douglas Haag.
This letter, which the FBI has since denied ever having written (!), recycled old disinformation, lies and distortions about Leo Wanta that had been disseminated by the late author Claire Sterling, in her book ‘Thieves’ World’ [Simon and Schuster, New York, 1994]. Apparently this book, despite its disinformation content, revealed rather too much for the liking of President Clinton, who ordered all copies to be seized – although the Editor had no problem finding a second-hand copy online. Separately, an intelligence operative on the West Coast expressed surprise when informed several years ago that copies of this work had been sourced without difficulty, commenting: ‘I thought we had got them all’ (thereby revealing of course his status as an operative).
At all events, Mrs Claire Sterling died suddenly after her second interview with the FBI.
EDITOR’S FUNDS TO ‘RESOLVE’ PREVIOUSLY SETTLED CASE # 92CF683
On the basis of the information provided by Attorney Steven D. Goodwin, the Editor undertook to provide the sum of $35,000 from scarce private resources to finance the payment demanded by the Wisconsin authorities (which can accurately be described as ‘extortion’ or ‘ransom’ money, given the circumstances). Steven Goodwin, prepared the relevant loan documents, including an Escrow Agreement, which Mr Goodwin signed as Trustee, signed by the Editor and dated 14th July 2005, which states: ‘Said funds shall be used to pay the amount of $30,551.97 to satisfy the court ordered obligations in Wisconsin case No. 92CF683’.
The Editor procured a bank draft for $35,000 dated 12th July 2005, which he sent by courier to Attorney Steven Goodwin (9), who, at the Editor’s request, travelled to Wisconsin, where on 21st July 2005 he handed his firm’s cheque # 1098 drawn on Bank of America for $30,626.97 (10) to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections Parole Agent, Michelle Riel, who in turn handed Mr Goodwin Receipt # 2270992 PP [document # 1303787] for $30,626.97, on which she wrote in her own hand, against the rubric ‘FOR (Purpose)’: 'Rest' – being short for ‘Restitution’ (11).
In other words, this receipt confirms that on 21st July 2005, Ambassador Leo Wanta paid the court-ordered ‘Restitution’ handed down by Judge Torphy in 1995 (for having not paid illegally charged State tax that he had in fact paid twice and which had been officially discharged on 1st June 1993, as reviewed below). On 22nd July 2005, Wisconsin Probation Agent Michelle Riel then procured an internal computerised ‘Client Account Inquiry’ itemising a total amount due of $30,626.97, applicable to ‘Year 1988’, on which she wrote: ‘Paid in full on 7/21/05: Michelle Riel’ (12).
WISCONSIN TAX GESTAPO CONTINUES DUNNING THE AMBASSADOR
Notwithstanding this payment for court-ordered ‘Restitution’, the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue has continued dunning Ambassador Leo Wanta for this very same State tax that he has never owed, as though this payment had never been made once, let alone THRICE. With respect to the internal ‘Client Account Inquiry’ print-out which asserts that the ‘tax’ refers to the year 1988 (12), Leo Wanta had been resident abroad for many years and effective June 1988, he had obtained from a court in Vienna formal status as a resident of Austria, a privilege that can only be conferred by a court in that country.
His residency in Austria had been considered desirable at the time by the White House, in view of the sensitive operations that he was masterminding in the context of President Reagan’s specific instructions to him, not least in connection with Financial Warfare operations against the Soviet Union. In addition, as he wore and still wears many hats, Leo Wanta was engaged in other ongoing investigations for various branches of US law enforcement.
When the Editor undertook to provide the ‘ransom money’ of $35,000 in 2005, it was not explained to him by Attorney Steven Goodwin that the Case Number 92CF683 cited in the Escrow Agreement document which Mr Goodwin signed as Trustee, had been settled on 12th June 1992 by Appleton, WI, Attorney Thomas A. Wilson, for Leo Wanta, under cover of his letter of that date, enclosing his firm’s cheque for $14,129.00 (13).
Specifically, this sum, settling a Wisconsin State civil tax assessment (for $14,129.00 tax that Leo Wanta did not owe as he had been working abroad for many years on US Government business at the highest level, and had as noted been a court-certified resident of Vienna, Austria, since June 1988) was paid by Attorney Thomas A Wilson by cheque number 6992 of his Appleton, WI, based legal firm Bachman, Cummings, McKenzie, Hebbe, McIntyre & Wilson, S.C., dated 3rd June 1992, labelled ‘Funds offered in compromise for Leo E. Wanta’, drawn on Bank One, Appleton, WI (14).
This payment was in fact the second such attempt by Leo Wanta, in conjunction with his colleague Howe Kwong Kok, to use agreed corporate funds to defray this ‘nuisance’ tax demand, which had no basis in legality whatsoever. Specifically, an earlier Telegraphic Transfer of $14,129 had been effected by Malaysian Banking Berhad in favour of Attorney Thomas A Wilson, to his Attorney Trust Account with Bank One, Appleton, WI, for account #414780, this being the proceeds of Singapore dollars 23,281.33, on which the bank had charged its commission of S$29.17 plus the cable cost of a further $20.40. This sum was remitted to Attorney Thomas A Wilson in May 1992, and was paid over under protest to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. Both these ‘nuisance’ payments were ignored and Wanta was arrested in Switzerland for having not paid $14,129, on 7th July 1993.
DUPLICATED ‘DELINQUENT TAX WARRANT’ # 44-00162088
The basis used by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue to perpetuate these fabrications was a ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ dated 9th May 1991, the reference number of which was 44-00162088. At this point, we walk through the Looking Glass, so please exercise a little patience here.
This ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 was subsequently DUPLICATED: divided into two, like an amoeba, thus ‘enabling’ the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue to ‘collect’ the (illegally charged) ‘State tax’ TWICE ( = DUPLICATION). It demanded payment of $10,298.00, which became the notorious $14,129 cited above, after the addition of interest.
The way this was done was as follows:
• One ‘version’ of ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 demanding payment of $10,398.00 (issued by State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Court) was allocated to Leo Wanta’s estranged wife, Joanne ‘G’. Wanta (incorrect middle initial, which should be ‘E’), with Leo E. Wanta’s name scratched out by the authorities. The Wisconsin State Department of Revenue chose to maintain (incorrectly, but for their own purposes) that Joanne Wanta and Leo Wanta filed taxes jointly, which was nonsense since, as per the Original Certificate of Divorce or Annulment granting their Divorce Decree of 3rd November 1995 (15), they had not resided in the same household since July 1988.
• The second ‘version’ of ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 demanding payment of $10,398.00 (issued by State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Court), was separately allocated to Leo E. Wanta with Joanne ‘G’. Wanta’s name (incorrect middle initial, which should be ‘E’) scratched out by the authorities (16). These two documents were never supposed to be seen together.
DUPLICATION ‘ENABLES’ STATE TO COLLECT SAME TAX TWICE
Accordingly there are now two ‘versions’ of ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 (both with the SAME reference # 44-00162088) demanding payment of $10,398.00, floating around – ‘enabling’ the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue to ‘collect’ the same amount TWICE.
Thus, when Leo Wanta paid, under protest, from Singapore, the first amount (which had, by May 1992, escalated to $14,129), it disappeared into a deliberately obfuscated vacuum – as did the second payment of the same amount in June 1992, alluded to above. DUPLICATION had provided the tax fabricators with endless scope for fraudulent manipilation, see.
For as soon as such a DUPLICATION mechanism has been inserted into the tax works, it becomes possible for the criminal cell running the operation to play ping-pong with the ‘taxpayer’ by denying or ignoring receipts, behind the duplicitous cover provided by the duplication. This is the essence of the criminal Leninist method, which no-one is ever supposed to be able to deconstruct.
DUPLICATION TECHNIQUE APPLIED BY STATE TAX GESTAPO
In summary, then, what have we here? Why, our old friend, criminal DUPLICATION [see our reports dated 27th and 30th July 2007]. What is the purpose of this repeated DUPLICATION technique? Answer: PERPETUAL OBFUSCATION. This is exactly the same (Leninist) technique that was used to obfuscate the intended seizure and diversion of Ambassador Wanta’s $27.5 trillion, which, as we have pointed out, was DUPLICATED for obfuscation purposes under George Bush I by the device of raising a SECOND, PARALLEL $27.5 trillion – from the 200+ banks alluded to in the mentioned recent reports. Thereafter, under cover of the ‘legitimate’ $27.5 trillion, the criminalist cadres set about ransacking Ambassador Wanta’s $27.5 trillion, in the belief that no-one would ever be able to disentangle the two underlying ‘sources of funds’ – so that the ‘crims’ could walk off with the lot, and generate limitless trillions from the back of both (currently estimated at around $600 trillion).
It is becoming harder and harder, is it not, to discard the idea that the same Luciferian minds were and remain at work at the Wisconsin State level, as designed the obfuscation of the $27.5 trillion by means of duplication at the macrofinancial level – DUPLICATION, for the purpose of gross criminal OBFUSCATION, being a standard criminalist-Leninist and counterintelligence technique for creating confusion, as a screen behind which criminal operations can proceed ‘with impunity’.
And what this investigation has ALSO reconfirmed is that the intelligence strategists inside the US intelligence community employ EXACTLY THE SAME methodology as Lenin notoriously applied in the Soviet Union and that are secretly used by the covert Soviet Union to this day. In other words, when you strip away appearances, the revolutionary criminalist US intelligence community operates clandestinely in the identical manner to the Leninist Party-State.
It must now be noted, for future reference, that ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 demanding payment of $10,398.00 (both ‘versions’) cites the following ‘account number’: 5QJLF7V5. We shall have occasion to pay attention to this reference shortly.
TAX WARRANT # 44-00162088 DISCHARGED ON 1ST JUNE 1993
But first: ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 demanding payment of $10,398.00 (issued by State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Court) was ‘fully satisfied’ on 1st June 1993. How do we know this? Because the Editor holds a copy of the Court- and Notary-certified ‘Satisfaction of Delinquent Tax Warrant’ of that date, filed on 4th June 1993 by Ruth H. Janssen, Clerk of Courts (her stamp), which states: ‘This warrant has been fully satisfied and the clerk of the said court is authorised to satisfy and discharge said tax warrant…’ (17).
The ‘satisfied’ ‘version’ of DUPLICATED ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 demanding payment of $10,398.00 (issued by State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Circuit Court) is the one addressed to Joanne Wanta (with Leo E. Wanta’s name scratched out), who now, all of a sudden, appears with the correct middle initial: Joanne E. Wanta. To repeat: the ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ number to which this ‘Satisfaction of Delinquent Tax Warrant’ refers: 44-00162088.
As noted, the ‘Satisfaction of Tax Warrant’ stated that ‘This Warrant has been fully satisfied’. Now, THIS side of the Looking Glass, a specific ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ cannot be ‘satisfied’ MORE than FULLY. (We could go and ask the Red Queen on the other side of the Looking Glass if she agrees, but perhaps we don’t need to bother).
You cannot ‘satisfy’ a ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ more than once, or more than 100%, if you prefer. Therefore, ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 demanding payment of $10,398.00 (issued by State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Court) was FULLY SATISFIED AND DISCHARGED per State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Circuit Court action on 1st June 1993.
WANTA ARRESTED SIX WEEKS AFTER DISCHARGE OF WARRANT
Yet Leo Wanta was illegally arrested in Switzerland six weeks later, on 7th July 1993, for not paying the State civil tax assessment that he never owed, but which he had paid twice already, and which had been FULLY SATISFIED AND DISCHARGED by the court, on 1st June 1993, as reported above.
It follows that the United States is a country where you are asked to pay tax that you never owed, you pay the tax that you never owed under protest twice, the tax that you never owed is paid into twin ‘Black Holes’ set up to ‘justify’ the continuing multiple collection of the self-same tax, and six weeks after the tax that you never owed and that you paid a second time has been discharged 'fully satisfied' by a court, you are arrested and thrown into a smelly dungeon abroad without a warrant for evading the tax that you never owed but have remitted under protest twice and which has been discharged, even though you are a diplomat and thus exempt from arrest – your illegal arrest being retrospectively ‘justified’ by instructions issued by a reprobate and ruthless State of the Union with a reputation for corruption, which lacks jurisdiction beyond its own internal borders as is the case with every US State. Moreover your arrest is supported by the State Department, which 'validates' the State's behaviour in usurping extraterritorial powers that it does not possess, thereby affirming the breakdown of Federal cohesion, and setting a precedent for other US States to do the same.
MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE WORTH BILLIONS IN REPARATIONS
Therefore, on the basis of this forensic analysis alone (and leaving all the other considerations, including the fact that he is a diplomat, aside), Ambassador Leo Wanta should never have been deprived of his liberty and is manifestly the victim of a grotesque historical miscarriage of justice – for which he should be compensated on a scale appropriate to his status as the greatest financial engineer of our age, who could have spent the 14 years of his life that he has lost, applying his unique talents and skills for the benefit of the United States and the amelioration of its decadent finances. In the Editor’s opinion, the State of Wisconsin should now be forced by the US Federal authorities to pay substantial reparations to Ambassador Wanta, over and above the delayed $4.5 trillion Settlement which has been hijacked by Wisconsin’s collaborators in Washington.
And this corrupt State should be taken over by a Federal Trust.
But astonishingly (not), a State of Wisconsin Office Audit Worksheet dated 1st September 1996 shows the same notorious amount of $14,129 itemised as ‘Tax Due’ (18).
Following Attorney Steven D. Goodwin’s payment using this Editor’s funds on 21st July 2005, the Wisconsin State Department of Corrections drew a cheque for $24,900.91 dated 4th August 2005 in favour of the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue [cheque # P 0524844; with second reference #: 16184456] – thus remitting to the tax authorities the illegally charged amount that had been paid twice in 1992 and for which ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 requesting the payment of the original $10,398.00 (issued by the State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Circuit Court) had been certified as fully satisfied and discharged by the Outagamie County Circuit Court on 1st June 1993, six weeks before Leo Wanta was illegally arrested in Switzerland (19).
STATE TAX GESTAPO IGNORES ALL PAYMENTS, DISCHARGE, ETC
On 2nd November 2006, 15 months and more after the sum of $24,900.91 was paid by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections to the Department of Revenue, on the basis of the payment by Attorney Steven Goodwin on 21st July 2005 of $30,626.97 of the Editor’s loan funds, for which the probation Agent Michelle Riel had written out her receipt #2270992 PP for $30,626.97 marked ‘For (purpose) Rest (Restitution)’, Leo Wanta received a letter from a Mr Gregg T. Frazier, Chief, Central Audit Section, State of Wisconsin Department of Revenue dated October 30, 2006, as follows:
‘In view of the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision on your appeal of the income tax assessment made by this department dated January 29,1996, I must ask you to send us your remittance now (as indicated on the enclosed Notice of Amount Due)’, which demanded the payment of $43, 304.42.
Accompanying these documents was a computer print-out marked ‘Amended’ itemising the sum demanded, of $43,304.42. This shows, in black and white, the notorious $14,129 that was paid twice in 1992 (etc: see above); but instead of representing tax, this amount has all of a sudden changed its status and is now described as ‘50%/100% penalty’. A note handwritten on this sheet states: ‘Per Wisconsin Supreme Court Order Dated December 30, 2005’ (20).
COURT ORDER NEVER NOTIFIED TO THE AMBASSADOR
Ambassador Wanta never received any notification of any such Wisconsin Supreme Court Order – having become aware of this only on receipt of this document on 2nd November 2006. (Likewise, Attorney Thomas A Wilson had stated in his letter to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue dated 12th June 1993, that the ‘criminal charge’ filed against Leo Wanta in Dane County Circuit Court Case # 92CF683 had been brought without Leo’s knowledge: Mr Wilson’s letter stated specifically in this context: ‘This is the first time this matter has been brought to his attention’.
In other words, the Wisconsin Tax Gestapo appear to be in the habit of filing criminal charges and conducting court representations without the knowledge of their victim). This is exactly what went on in the Soviet Union under Josef Kochba-Djugashvili (Stalin).
STATE OFFICIAL FRAZIER SAYS ‘I WILL HAVE TO LOOK INTO IT’
When the Editor, wearing his investigative financial journalist’s hat, telephoned this Mr Frazier on 3rd November 2006, Frazier commented twice, once he had condescendingly managed to bring himself to understand the gravity of the matter: ‘I will have to look into it’.
Far from ‘looking into it’, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (Taxation Gestapo) has continued relentlessly and ruthlessly dunning Ambassador Leo Wanta illegally for the tax that was paid twice in 1992, was ‘fully satisfied and discharged’ on 1st June 1993, and was paid a third time employing the Editor’s private funds in July 2005.
Specifically, on 1st December 2006, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue issued a 'Statement of Account' to Leo Emil Wanta for $43,304.42, giving a breakdown which mysteriously itemised the continued ‘existence’ of the notorious amount of $14,129.00 that was paid twice in 1992 (etc), you will surely recall. This document, though dated 1st December 2006, was somehow not received by the Ambassador until 30th December 2006 (21).
On 16th January 2007, the Tax Gestapo issued a ‘Notice of Overdue Tax’ for $46,119.21 (22); and on 17th April 2007, the Tax Gestapo issued a so-called ‘Notice of Warrant Filing’ demanding individual income tax for the period to 31st December 1990 (previously 1988, you remember?), for the same escalated amount of $46,119.21 (23). What this means is that the Wisconsin Department of Revenue were intending to obtain a Delinquent Tax Warrant against the Ambassador to collect the funds that this Editor paid by the hand of Attorney Steven D. Goodwin to the Wisconsin State Department of Collections on 21st July 2005, and which Probation Agent Michelle Riel accepted with her receipt marked ‘Rest (Restitution)’ and confirmed the next day had been ]paid in full].
As we have tiresomely seen, the amount that the Editor’s funds settled on 21st July 2005 in respect of Wisconsin Case #92CF683, had previously been settled by Attorney Thomas A. Wilson with Leo Wanta’s already duplicated funds of $14,129 on 12th June 1993, and separately when ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant # 44-00162088 was Court- and Notary-certified as ‘fully satisfied’ and discharged by Wisconsin Outagamie County Circuit Court on 1st June 1993.
CORRECTIONS’ CHEQUE FOR $24,900.91 MARKED 5QJLF7V5
Reverting to the payment made by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections’ cheque (using this Editor’s private funds) dated 4th August 2005 of $24,900.91, to the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue, the Editor has obtained from Mr John Dipko, Public Information Officer at the Department of Corrections, a copy of the front and reverse (showing the processing data) of this cheque (24).
At the top of this cheque (reference # P 0524844) has been written, in handwriting: 5QJLF7V5 [see above]. The Editor has further obtained from Mr Dipko an emailed statement by him confirming that this reference number was NOT written on the cheque by anyone at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. Therefore, it was written on the cheque by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
If you are still magnificently with us, you will recall that this reference number 5QJLF7V5 was shown on ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088, which of course was ‘fully satisfied’ and discharged by the Wisconsin State Outagamie County Circuit Court on 1st June 1993. Accordingly, the pertinent question arises: why was the Editor’s $24,900.91 allocated to an 'account' referenced by ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 which was ‘fully satisfied’ and ‘discharged’ 12 years previously?
We shall discover the answer to this question below.
INCOMPETENT OBFUSCATION OPERATION EXPOSED
When you recall that the Editor’s loan funds were supposed to have been allocated to Wisconsin Case # 92CF683 (according to Attorney Steven Goodwin’s Escrow Agreement with the Editor as Trustee for the Editor’s funds) which had been settled per Attorney Thomas A. Wilson’s letter to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue dated 12th June 1992 enclosing his firm’s Trust Account cheque # 6992 for $14,129.00, the audacity of this obfuscation, and the ‘incompetent’ execution thereof by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, becomes even more readily apparent.
PARALLEL FABRICATED ‘FALLS VENDING’ TAX DEMANDS
But it gets worse. In the early 1980s, Leo Wanta was engaged in deep cover investigations into the assassination of President Kennedy, which was believed to have been contracted out to members of the Wisconsin-based Balisteri mob ‘family’. For this purpose, he had become involved strictly as an employee, never as an owner of share, in an operation called Falls Vending Service, Inc., based in Menomonee Falls and then Butler, WI – not least, to monitor and gather evidence with respect to the alleged distribution of drugs through vending machines (which was the cover for his deeper investigation). Court documents agree that Leo E. Wanta was never at any time an ‘owner’ of Falls Vending Service. Judge John W. Reynolds, Chief US District Judge, United States District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin, confirmed in an ORDER dated 7th September 1984 (C.A. # 84-C-359) that: ‘Wanta… is only an employee of the company [Falls Vending Service]. The owner of a company cannot confer standing on a non-lawyer employee by stipulation or otherwise’(25A).
COURT ORDERS CONFIRM WANTA NEVER OWNED FALLS VENDING SHARES
This ORDER was subsequently reconfirmed by an ORDER for Dismissal dated 4th April 1985 handed down by Circuit Judge Robert T McGraw in the State of Wisconsin Circuit Court, Waukesha County [Case # 83-CV-452: Wisconsin Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations, et al, and James Doro, vs. Falls Food & Vending Service Inc., and Leo Wanta], which concerned a claim for wages. Reporting that Falls Food and Vending Service, Inc. (as it was then named) had filed for bankruptcy in the Eastern District of Wisconsin under Case # 83-02385, the Judge stated that ‘Leo Wanta is not personally liable for any claimed wages owing to plaintiff’ [for wages, please read: unemployment tax obligations] (25B).
This reflected the fact that he was never an owner of shares in Falls Vending Service, Inc., was not an officer in the company, and was simply a wage-earning employee thereof.
Subsequently, Ms. Jo Ellen Rehbein, Administrative Law Judge, handed down an Appeal Tribunal Decision on behalf of the State of Wisconsin Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations, at a hearing held in Appleton, WI, in which that Judge confirmed that ‘Leo Wanta is not personally liable for the unemployment compensation tax delinquencies of Falls Vending Service, Inc’.
In order for Leo Wanta to have been so liable, it would have been necessary, under Section 108.22(9) of the relevant Wisconsin Statutes, for Leo Wanta to have been ‘an officer or employee holding at least 20% of the ownership interest in a corporation subject to this chapter’.
Judge Jo Ellen Rehbein determined that ‘it was not established that the appellant owned at least 20 percent interest in Falls Vending Service, Inc’. (As indicated above, Leo Wanta owned no shares in the company at all: he was no more than an employee).
‘He [Leo E. Wanta, by virtue of not owning at least 20% of the company’s shares, given that he owned none] exercised no control, supervision, or responsibility for filing contribution reports or making payments of contributions. Therefore, the conditions required under Section 108.22(9) of the Wisconsin Statutes were not satisfied for imposing personal liability on him for unemployment compensation tax delinquencies…. The Appeal Tribunal therefore finds that Leo E. Wanta is not personally liable for the delinquent unemployment compensation taxes of Falls Vending Service, Inc., within the meaning of Section 108.22(9) of the Statutes’ (25C).
OBITUARY NOTICE OF ACTUAL OWNER OF FALLS VENDING SERVICE, INC.
On 10th April 2007, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel carried the following obituary of the veteran actual owner of Falls Vending Service, Inc., noting that he was buried at Spring Hill Cemetery, Milwaukee, which, a special informant tells us, is a well-known mafia cemetery. The text of this obituary read as follows (please be patient!):
‘Engle, Jerome S: Passed away Friday, April 6, 2007, in Palm Springs, CA, aged 85 years, of Fox Point, beloved husband of Joyce Engle (nee Skowron). Dear father of Margie (Thomas) Krauskopf and Craig (Linda Engle Roeming) Engle. Fond brother of Howard (Esther Marsa) Engle and brother-in-law of Eddie (Betty) Levi. Loving grandfather of Sara Krauskopf, Joshua Krauskopf, Rachel (Joe) Walts, Miriam Engle and Eliza Engle. Preceded in death by his siblings, Jeanne Werner and Maxine Levi. Jerry was a long time volunteer, helping patients at Desert Hospital in Palm Springs, CA. He was owner of Falls Vending Service in Menomonee Falls and then Butler, WI for many years and previously worked at Sampson’s appliance store. During World War II he was a member of the 90th Infantry Division, 357th Regiment. He was a medic on Utah Beach in June 1944, rose to the rank of captain and was awarded the Bronze Star.

BLANE GOODMAN FUNERAL SERVICE. Online guestbook and information www.blanegoodmanfunerals.com (262) 241-4444’.
Yet this further confirmation that Leo Wanta never had any ownership of Falls Vending Service (which was owned by this now deceased Jerome S. Engle), augmenting Chief US District Judge John W. Reynolds’ ORDER and the other two referenced court findings to that same effect, has made no difference whatsoever to separate, PARALLEL demands addressed to Leo Wanta with which he has been plagued, as a FURTHER obfuscation stage of the ongoing orchestrated Tax Gestapo conspiracy against him, begun in the early 1990s – and which the Luciferian duplication and obfuscation strategists have been unable to stop for fear that their entire house of corruption will finally implode on their heads, bringing exposure and closure to the unresolved assassination of President Kennedy to boot. This is the last thing they want to happen.
SO SENSITIVE, THEY CONTINUE WITH THEIR SCAMMING
Indeed, it is precisely because the consequences of the unravelling of ‘Wisconsingate’ are so devastating for the criminal intelligence ‘Brotherhood’ and their organised crime associates, that this PARALLEL, DUPLICATED offensive has been carried on quite separately from the Restitution Order component of this scandal, which was what the Editor thought he was solely dealing with.
On the contrary, Wisconsin Attorney General James E Doyle, now the Governor of this State, wrote to Judge Michael B. Torphy following the sentencing of Leo Wanta on 20th November 1995, citing Case # 92CF683, and stating inter alia that he had decided not to have the Court include the ‘Falls Vending’ amount (then standing at $646,918.91) in the intended court restitution order, because:
‘I suspect that any attempts to collect such a large amount through the good offices of the Department of Corrections as part of a restitution order would be impractical, if not futile’.
However the real reason Mr Doyle advised Judge Torphy that chasing this huge amount via the court’s intended restitution order would be futile, may have been that the Attorney General will have known (not least from the cited court orders and the Appeal Tribunal Decision) that Leo Wanta was not personally responsible for paying the Falls Vending Service corporate tax delinquencies. The implication is thus that Leo Wanta is the victim of a grotesque miscarriage of justice brought about by the gravest of offences: perjury, subornation of perjury and prosecutorial misconduct.
Then he added: ‘The Department of Revenue will continue to avail itself of whatever civil remedies it may have in its collection efforts. For the Court’s information, the amount owed on defendant’s delinquent tax account as of November 20, 1995, was $646,918.91’.
The Wisconsin Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations disregarded the ORDER handed down by the Chief US District Judge John W. Reynolds on 7th September 1984 confirming that Leo Wanta was ‘only an employee of the company’, as well as Waukesha County Circuit Judge Robert T. McGraw’s ORDER dated the 4th April 1985 that ‘Leo Wanta is not individually liable for any claimed wages owing’ by Falls Vending Service, Inc.; and prior to the Appeal Tribunal Decision by Judge Jo Rehbein, the WI Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations had incorrectly ‘determined’ that Leo Wanta was personally liable for the payment of delinquent unemployment compensation taxes owed by Falls Vending Service, Inc., in the amount of $45,995.31, incorporating late filing fees and interest, computed through August 31, 1988’ – many years after Leo Emil Wanta had left Falls Vending Service. The Wisconsin Department of Revenue then proceeded to ignore the Decision of the Appeal Tribunal handed down by one of the State’s own Judges on behalf of its Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations, so that the already inflated sum of $45,995.31 had ballooned to well over $1.0 million by July 2007 [see below]. (25D)
THE CUNNING, CRUEL, SECRET AGENDA
But what was really intended (and has since occurred according to plan) was that:
(1) Ambassador Leo Emil Wanta should suffer in jail, under house arrest and on probation (until 28th November 2010) for evading tax of $14,129 that he never owed, that had been settled under protest twice in 1992 and formally declared by Outagamie County Circuit Court as having been ‘fully satisfied’ and discharged, on 1st June 1993.
(2) The successive payments and various settlements of the fabricated Wisconsin State civil tax assessments, with interest and penalties, should continue ad infinitum to be wrongly credited and/or diverted or stolen, even despite the WI Department of Corrections having received this Editor’s private funds and confirmed by its official receipt that the funds had been ‘paid in full’ for ‘Rest (Restitution)'. The Department of Corrections is by no means ‘out of the wood’ and may have failed to exercise appropriate due diligence in respect of disposition of the Editor’s funds.
(3) No matter how many times the ‘restitution’ was paid, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue reserved the option of continuing to claim the same funds until the end of the solar system, hiding behind its multiple ‘duplication’ cover, and to go so far as to seek further ‘Delinquent Tax Warrants’ to procure payment of the same long since settled illegal civil tax assessments over and over...
(4) If and when Leo Wanta ever managed to escape from the clutches of the GULAG apparatus, he would be confronted on emerging from that hell, with the parallel spurious tax levies that Attorney General Doyle had cunningly ‘decided’ to leave out of Judge Torphy’s Restitution Order – thereby providing the ruthless criminal strategists with a ‘duplicated’ means, in the future, of triggering the entrapment process all over again.
POSSIBLE INTENTION OF GAINING A LIEN ON SETTLEMENT
In the prevailing context, the objective may be to establish a lien on the Ambassador’s Settlement funds. It is this Editor’s firm intention to expose this probable criminal objective and conspiracy, so that the evil intentions of the controllers are thwarted and the perpetrators are themselves given a ‘taste of their own medicine’.
At all events, on 12th February 2007, a separate ‘Notice of Pending Internet Posting’ addressed to Leo Wanta cited a fictitious ‘Falls Vending’ ‘balance due’ of $897.375.07. From time to time in the past, the Tax Gestapo had issued demands for large sums in pursuit of this ‘parallel’ fabricated escalating tax liability based on a separate ‘line’ exploiting an official ‘assumption' that Leo Wanta was the owner of Falls Vending Service, which was never the case [see above], to which Attorney Steven Goodwin failed to draw to the Editor’s attention. These ‘nuisance’ assessments exploit the mentioned fictitious contention by the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue that Leo Wanta is responsible for the alleged Falls Vending Service unemployment compensation tax delinquencies.
On the face of it, therefore, the expenditure of the Editor’s personal loan funds has done nothing other than to shorten Leo Emil Wanta’s probation period by about five years. However it should separately have procured a ‘Satisfaction of Restitution Order’ document from the relevant (Dane County) Wisconsin Court; yet Attorney Steven Goodwin has not procured the production of such a document from the Judge and the Court.
On 10th June 2007, the date when, after 730 days, the Editor’s loan funds should have been repaid, the Editor sent a comprehensive dossier on this matter by courier and (a week later) separately by recorded mail, both to Judge Michael B. Torphy Jr. and to the Dane County Court. The Editor has received no acknowledgement from either recipient.
MISUSE OF EDITOR’S FUNDS TO PAY STATE PUBLIC DEFENDER
A further matter of concern is that on 4th August 2005, the Wisconsin Department of Corrections drew a second cheque, for $4,167.64, using the Editor’s funds, in favour of the Wisconsin Public Defender’s Office [cheque references: P 0524327; 16183939], the front and processed reverse of which is illustrated in Figure 3 on page 422 of International Currency Review, Volume 33, #s 1 & 2. This payment has been made in violation of the State of Wisconsin’s very own Statute prohibiting publicly funded legal representation of a defendant who has access to financial resources with which to pay his own private legal counsel, as guaranteed by the US Constitution.
Leo repeatedly requested to be allowed to appoint his own private counsel but was repeatedly told he could not do so, and wound up with an Attorney appointed by the State, Mr John A Chavez, who became so exasperated when informed by Leo Wanta of the perjury and subornation of perjury that was intended by the State for the purpose of misleading Judge Torphy’s Court, that he asked Wanta to sack him. Ambassador Wanta retorted that he was in no position to dismiss him because he had not hired Chavez in the first place, having requested to be able to appoint and thus to pay for his own private legal counsel and having been barred from doing so.
The Editor is concerned that, in addition to $24,900.91 of his funds having apparently been booked to the fabricated ‘Falls Vending’ ‘account’ – whereas they had been accepted by the Department of Corrections as being specifically for court restitution of Judge Torphy’s Order in Case # 92CF683 which has nothing to do with Falls Vending (as confirmed by the receipt prepared and signed by Probation Agent Michelle Riel on 21st July 2005) – the second Department of Corrections cheque using his funds, for $4,167.64, was also irregular, in the manner summarised above.
It is noted that former Wisconsin Attorney General James E Doyle’s already cited letter to Judge Torphy asking his court to exclude the ‘Falls Vending’ amount (then $646,918.91) from the intended restitution order, begins with the following assertion:
‘I am herewith providing the court with a statement of costs for legal representation provided by the Office of the State Public Defender. The court ordered restitution for such costs pursuant to Sec. 973.09(1g), State. That statement is attached as Exhibit 1’.
However, as indicated, Leo Wanta repeatedly asked to appoint and pay for his own private legal representation, so the court’s order in this regard appears to have been based upon ‘defective’ information, given that, as noted, the appointment of a State Public Defender in a case where the defendant is able to pay for his own counsel, is illegal under Wisconsin State law.
So this further apparent misuse of the Editor’s loan funds is of grave concern, too, and simply exacerbates the crisis, which has escalated in the context of the failure of Judge Torphy and the court to respond to the Editor’s June 2007 communications enclosing documented evidence of these tax fabrications, coupled with its failure also to provide a ‘Satisfaction of Restitution Order’ document enabling the Editor to be afforded the proper accounting of the use of his funds to which he and Ambassador Wanta are legally and morally entitled.
WHY THE COURT HAS NOT ISSUED THE 'SATISFACTION' DOCUMENT
One reason that the necessary ‘Satisfaction of Restitution Order’ has not been forthcoming is that issuance of this essential document by the Judge and the court would itself represent fraud, given the history of this case. Yet failure to issue this document broadcasts loud and clear that multiple fraud has anyway been committed. Either way, it would appear that the Judge, the court, the former Attorney General, now Governor, James E. Doyle, the other officials named in our reports, and both the Department of Corrections and the Department of Revenue, and their relevant officials, as well as Steven Goodwin, may be enmeshed in this nexus of serial fraud against both the Ambassador and now, the Editor of this service.
Probation Agent Michelle Riel signed a receipt for the Editor’s funds on which she stated that the funds paid over by Attorney Steven D. Goodwin had been formally received by her on behalf of the Department of Corrections for ‘Restitution’, that is to say, had been paid in full in accordance with Judge Torphy’s Restitution Order. By failing to provide the necessary ‘Satisfaction of Restitution’ document and to respond to the Editor’s communication and dossiers dated June 2007, which drew the attention of the recipients to the fabrications and frauds, the State Court may have indicated that the Editor’s funds were indeed received fraudulently, and have been disposed of fraudulently, thereby entangling ALL the parties in these egregious felonies.
EDITOR TO PETITION UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT
In practice, therefore, the antics of the Wisconsin Department of Revenue have ensured that the present ongoing forensic analysis and the public exposure of these Wisconsin tax fabrications against Ambassador Leo Emil Wanta have been ratcheted up, to the point at which this Editor has accumulated devastating evidence of multiple oppressive felonies committed by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, individual employees thereof, and others against both Leo E. Wanta and, now, the Editor himself. Being a ‘foreigner’, this Editor is entitled to apply to the United States Supreme Court for a proper accounting of his funds, which has STILL not yet been forthcoming, despite the Editor having provided Judge Torphy and the Court with documented evidence of this convoluted wrongdoing; so preparations are in hand for an application to the US Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, let us take a final look, for now, at the ‘Falls Vending’ dimension of this scandalous state of affairs. On the aforementioned WI Department of Revenue document dated 15th February 2007, demanding $897.375.07, the ID# cited is as follows: 5QJLF7V5.
This is the same reference number as is featured on the ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant # 44-00162088’, which, as we have seen, was ‘fully satisfied’ as confirmed by the ‘Satisfaction of Delinquent Tax Warrant’ dated 1st June 1993, referenced above. Pointing out the obvious, we have already seen that no ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ can be ‘fully satisfied’ by more than 100%.
Exactly what is ‘fuller’ than ‘fully’? It cannot ever be ‘over-fully satisfied’. The truth of the matter, therefore, is that the ‘account’ referenced by the rubric 5QJLF7V5 was ‘satisfied’ and discharged by Wisconsin State Outagamie County Circuit Court 14 years ago, according to the paper trail.
EDITOR’S LOAN FUNDS IMPROPERLY CREDITED?
Since no ‘Satisfaction of Restitution Order’ has been forthcoming from the Wisconsin Court, and the ‘account number’ 5QJLF7V5 was written by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue onto the cheque for $24,900.91 drawn in its favour by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, which had accepted the Editor’s funds proffered by Attorney Steven D Goodwin on 21st July 2005 as ‘Rest. (Restitution) ‘Paid in full’, it appears to have been credited by the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue to this ‘ongoing’ fabricated ‘Falls Vending’ account, which was and is quite outside the Department of Corrections’ ‘jurisdiction’ – rather than specifically to Wisconsin Case #92CF683, as specified in Attorney Goodwin’s Escrow Agreement covering the Editor’s loan funds. (That case, of course, had been ‘settled’ (a) per Attorney Thomas A. Wilson’s letter and payment to the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue of 12th June 1993, and (b) per ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant # 44-00162088 which was ‘fully satisfied’, discharged, roasted, garnished and marinated with strawberries and cream on 1st June 1993, as has been explained).
FABRICATED ‘FALLS VENDING’ ACCOUNT NOW EXCEEDS $1.0 MILLION
On 3rd May 2007, the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue issued a further ‘Notice of Internet Posting’, with this ‘second-stream’ ‘Falls Vending’ amount now up to $903,766.77 (27). On 16th July 2007, a further Wisconsin State Department of Revenue document, displaying different reference numbers and suddenly OMITTING the tell-tale 5QJLF7V5 rubric, was issued, making mention of a ‘Total Amount Due’ of $1,040,640.44 (28).
Finally, it will be recalled again that the Wisconsin State Department of Corrections’ cheque for $24,900.91 of the Editor’s private loan funds dated 4th August 2005, was marked by the Department of Revenue with this self-same rubric: 5QJLF7V5.
So, this Editor’s private funds have been allocated (a) to an ‘account’ that was Court- and Notary-certified in June 1993 for ‘personal State tax’ to have been ‘fully satisfied and ‘discharged’; and yet (b) to an account carrying the same 5QJLF7V5 reference for ‘corporate State tax’ that is nothing to do with Wisconsin Case #92CF683 for which the Editor’s funds were provided, and is nothing to do with Ambassador Leo Wanta and has never been his responsibility, either. One wonders whether the newly deceased Jerome S. Engle was intending that these mythical tax proceeds should be remitted for the benefit of his ‘family’ after his departure from these shores.
CORRECTIONS RECEIPTED EDITOR’S FUNDS FOR ‘RESTITUTION’
The Editor’s contribution paid to Wisconsin probation Agent Michelle Riel on 21st July 2005 was recorded and receipted by her for ‘Rest’ (Restitution); and on the computerised document that she generated the next day, Michelle Riel wrote that the sum consistent with Judge Michael B. Torphy’s Restitution Order had been ‘Paid in Full’. Attorney Steven Goodwin has represented to this Editor that these documents – plus the fact that the former Secretary of the Wisconsin State Department of Corrections, Matthew J. Frank, issued an ‘Absolute Discharge’ terminating Ambassador Wanta’s (illegal) probation effective 14th November 2005 (some five years ‘early’) – ‘should’ represent proof enough that Leo Wanta has fulfilled his court-ordered Restitution ‘obligations’.
The Editor responded by informing Attorney Goodwin that, according to the Editor’s information, the law attaches no meaning to the word ‘should’. The Court has not provided the ‘satisfaction’ of Judge Torphy’s Restitution Order that it should have provided, so this Editor possesses no proper accounting for his outstanding loan funds, which he has reason to believe have not been properly credited (i.e. they may have been stolen).
The Editor is advised that the Court must furnish Ambassador Wanta with a document signifying the ‘satisfaction’ of the Court’s Restitution Order. As indicated, this has not been forthcoming, and the Wisconsin Department of Revenue have ignored the restitution payment and are continuing to dun the Ambassador for the same civil tax assessment. The Editor wrote to both the Judge and the Court in June, but as indicated has not received the courtesy of a response from either party.
ARE JUDGE AND COURT CO-CONSPIRATORS ALSO?
By not responding, both parties would appear to have placed themselves in a position which would seem to imply that they may also be co-conspirators in the fabrications and frauds against, and the illegal arrest, incarceration, house arrest and probation of, Ambassador Leo Emil Wanta. By failing to procure the necessary ‘satisfaction’ document, Attorney Goodwin is likewise in an unenviable position, especially since the Escrow Agreement which he prepared and which confirms him to be Trustee of the Editor’s loan funds, cites Wisconsin case # 92CF683 – which not least is the self-same Case Number that was settled by means of the cheque for $14,129.00 tendered by Appleton Attorney Thomas A Wilson under cover of his letter to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue dated 12th June 1992, in which Mr Wilson specifically cited this same Case # 92CF683.
FABRICATED ‘FALLS VENDING’ (DUPLICATED) TRAP EXPOSED
In summary, the parallel phoney ‘Falls Vending Service’ civil tax assessments, enjoying their own separate ‘existence’, have carried on as though nothing had happened. Specifically, as we have seen, the Editor’s $24,900.91 was paid on 4th August 2005 by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue to an account with the rubric 5QJLF7V5, that appears on the documents alleging ‘Total Amount Due’ which has now escalated to over a million dollars. Any breakdown of this fictitious account should reveal, therefore, an incorrect ‘credit’ of $24,900.91 to this ‘Falls Vending Service, Inc.’ account in August 2005: or, put another way, absent that payment, the current fictitious amount would be the fake sum of $1,040,640.44 + $24,900.91 = $1,065,541.35. The Editor has asked Leo Wanta’s Attorney Thomas Henry if he will now obtain a comprehensive breakdown of this fictitious tax ‘account’ to confirm this expectation.
As we have seen, this separate ‘line’ of tax demands has proceeded outside the jurisdiction of the Court and the State Department of Corrections, having been excluded from the Court’s Restitution Order because, according to the letter from then Wisconsin Attorney General James E Doyle, citing Case # 92CF683, he had decided not incorporate the ‘Falls Vending’ amount in the intended court Restitution Order (18). As also mentioned above, Judge John W. Reynolds, Chief US District Judge, United States District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin, had confirmed in his ORDER dated 7th September 1984 (C.A. # 84-C-359), that ‘Wanta… is only an employee of the company [Falls Vending Service]. The owner of a company cannot confer standing on a non-lawyer employee by stipulation or otherwise’ (19).
But since ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 referencing account # 5QJLF7V5, was ‘fully satisfied’ and discharged on 1st June 1993, and it can be proven that Leo Wanta never owned any part of Falls Vending Service, which was in fact owned by the deceased Jerome S. Engle, it is not going to be possible for the Wisconsin Department of Revenue to sustain any dimension of these fabrications in a court of law. It is also factual that Leo Wanta received a tax refund from the State of Wisconsin for $2,053.00 dated 11th May 1984, indicating that he owed no tax to the State from earlier years, when he was engaged in his FBI ‘sting’ working as an employee of Falls Vending (30).
EDITOR MUST RECEIVE PROPER ACCOUNTING FOR HIS FUNDS
Yet this Editor must be provided with the necessary proper accounting for the use of his funds remitted in 2005 to Attorney Steven Goodwin as Trustee for the benefit of the Ambassador – an accounting which he has a right to demand, and which Attorney Steven Goodwin, who accepted the Editors’ funds as Trustee, has so far failed to procure from the Wisconsin Taxation Gestapo or to provide to this Editor.
Separately, since Joanne E. Wanta accepted Leo Wanta’s second $14,129 ‘nuisance’ payment in full ‘satisfaction’ of ‘her’ component of the illegally ‘split’ ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant # 44-00162088, she converted these funds illegally and is therefore a co-conspirator in this fraudulent operation with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue and other parties.
OPERATION TO ENABLE STRATEGISTS TO ‘TAKE DOWN’ WANTA AGAIN
The ‘Falls Vending Service’ ‘stream’ of Wisconsin State civil tax assessments was clearly intended to provide the long-range deception strategists with a means of ‘taking down’ the Ambassador at a later stage, and may now be targeted at giving the criminal operatives in that State a prospective lien on Ambassador Wanta’s Settlement.
This is one of the reasons why the Editor has exposed these Tax Gestapo fabrications against the Ambassador in such detail. Such a malevolent intention cannot succeed, but it is important for the international financial community to be well aware of the endless duplicity of the organised criminal cadres inside and outside the US intelligence structures – which, given compartmentalisation, may have been unable to see the broader picture. Other dimensions of this component of Wantagate cannot be elaborated here at this time: but given our exposures and these other dimensions, it is not hard to understand why a Wisconsin tax agent suddenly informed the Editor on 7th May 2007 that ‘things are jiving here’.
No doubt the minds that applied their standard obfuscation routine to this case imagined that they would never be found out, because the labyrinthine cynical duplication diversions might have been assumed to be enough to baffle Dr Einstein himself.
You will have noticed, of course, that there are TWO obfuscation operations running in parallel here: first, the duplication achieved by splitting ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088; and secondly, the apparently ‘separate’ stream of fictitious tax assessments and related documents claiming tax purportedly applicable to Falls Vending Service, with which Leo Wanta severed his connections as an employee in the early 1980s, which he has never owned any part of, and which was owned by this Jerome S. Engle fellow, who is now as dead as a doornail.
SUBORNATION OF PERJURY AND PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT
Thus the criminal cadres’ duplication-cum-obfuscation routine in Wisconsin has come very badly unstuck. As this component of the Wantagate scandal unravels, it will become as clear as night follows day to everyone, that Ambassador Leo Wanta is the victim of a ruthless, unscrupulous, cynical, long-range ‘take-down’ conspiracy based upon subornation of perjury and prosecutorial misconduct, designed to tie him down, to keep him out of the way, to wear him out, and if possible to destroy him – the murder attempts having failed and ceased, as did five attempts to have him certified insane while he was languishing in the American GULAG.
Those behind this scandal no doubt imagined that the application of their standard duplication techniques would baffle everyone, and that nobody would be able to unravel the duplicitous deceptions that the WI Department of Revenue has sustained in respect of ‘Wisconsin Case # 92CF683’ since around 1990. By the same token, the criminal minds behind the duplication of Ambassador Wanta’s $27.5 trillion that we elaborated upon in our reports dated 27th and 30th July, no doubt assumed that no-one would ever be able to unravel that scam, either. At both levels of deception, the US intelligence and organised criminal operatives were mistaken.
It is not surprising that the belated preoccupation of all concerned is to close down this nexus of scandals before the resulting ‘train wreck’ destroys not merely the US dollar and the world financial economy, via the most comprehensive destruction of wealth in human history, but the G. W. Bush II Administration itself. The scale of the fabrications perpetrated against Ambassador Leo Emil Wanta by the Wisconsin State Taxation Gestapo are so appalling, that elements of the Federal authorities, even, may not be prepared, we understand, to put up with these abuses any longer.
But just in case the temptation to brush this dimension of Wantagate under the carpet is too great for these weaklings, we have drawn the world’s attention to the detail of these fabrications here, in order to place them on the historical record again.
One doesn’t want any of this deconstructed detail to be obfuscated, does one (31), (32), (33).
• EXTENDED NOTE ON THE CRIMINALIST DUPLICATION METHOD:
Duplication is the essence of the Leninist method, which is itself a manifestation of the primary characteristic of those who call themselves ‘the Illuminated ones’ – namely, double-mindedness. The ‘Illuminati’ think they are ‘enlightened’, but the ‘light’ that they claim guides them is in fact the false ‘light’ of Lucifer, whose speciality is lies and confusion, turning everything upside down. This spiritual disease of double-mindedness, to which we are all susceptible and against which we must always be on guard, was explicitly addressed by Jesus Christ in the following passage: ‘The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single [i.e., if you are single-minded], thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!’ [Matthew, Chapter 6, verses 22-23]. Here, the Lord refers quite plainly to darkness masquerading as light, which is the satanic delusion by which the people we are alluding to have allowed themselves to become entrapped.
These people are all ‘wise in their own eyes’: yet their wisdom is not derived from ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life’, but rather from the inspiration of Evil, which masquerades in their perception, as ‘light’. These people are not ‘illuminated’, but rather are blinded. When the Pharisee Saul was struck by a ‘great light’ on the road to Damascus, with letters from the Chief Priests and Scribes to persecute and round up more followers of ‘that way’ (of Jesus Christ), the light, although it was midday in the glaring sunlight, was so very great that he was blinded for three days. His internal darkness was pitch black: so when he saw this great light, it blinded him for its brightness.
By definition, if we confuse the True Light with darkness, then we are double-minded, because we are asserting the truth to be false, and lies to be the truth: ‘Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!’ [Isaiah, Chapter 5, verses 20-23].
Double-mindedness, deliberately calling evil good and good evil, confusing the True Light with darkness and vice versa, is the primary characteristic of the modern-day followers of the Illuminati patriarchs – those workers of darkness, Dr Adam Weishaupt and Albert Pike (both of whom were sorcerers and necrophiliacs, by the way: see the Editor’s latest work, the New Underworld Order, available via this website).
Now the manifestations that we can immediately identify of this tell-tale characteristic of double-mindedness that concern us here, include the following:
• The very word DUPLICITY, which is what we are dealing with, means ‘double-mindedness’ and reeks of DUPLICATION: saying one thing, doing another. Hence the complaint that we have been making since the start of Wantagate, to the effect that no undertaking, verbal or formalised in the most solemn manner, of the US Treasury or the White House, can be relied upon – since the US operatives in question are double-minded, duplicitous, and accustomed to running two sets of books. When we further complain that the ‘Full Faith and Credit’ of the United States has been debauched, we ought also to state that the very concept of ‘Full Faith and Credit’ is absurd, given that the holders of power operate duplicitously and always speak out of both sides of their mouths.
• Likewise, it should be unsurprising that no statement, undertaking or action by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue has any meaning, for the same reason. We are now inclined to believe that the same goes for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, as the Editor has just been informed that on 21st July 2005, Attorney Steven Goodwin spoke with Probation Agent Michelle Riel alone, i.e. spoke to her ‘ex parte’. If that conversation impinged upon the matters of which we complain in this report, the Editor would regard that as an extremely serious issue which will probably need to be exposed in any Supreme Court hearing.
• On-the-books, off-the-books: Here is routine double-mindedness in the financial context, par excellence: on-balance sheet, off-balance sheet. Manifestly, if transactions take place off-balance sheet, the on-balance sheet numbers are inaccurate, rendering accounting and auditing a farce, and enmeshing many accountants and auditors in the fraudulent transactions of their clients. The prevailing crisis is all about how the holders of ‘fiat money’ assets can contrive to position their holdings onto the books without getting caught for tax evasion. One method being deployed is the targeting of ‘real assets’ in the real economy (corporations, enterprises) for takeover, financing such takeovers by means of massive bank loans, and servicing those loans from the untaxed ‘fiat money’ assets held in secret bank accounts offshore. This supposedly ‘converts’ the off-balance sheet assets into ‘on-balance sheet’ assets, and is also known as money laundering.
• The Hegelian dialectic, and all Luciferian methodologies that derive from it – Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis: but mainly, Thesis and Antithesis: the two ‘opposites’ which, in the wholly ‘mechanical’ world that the ‘Illuminated ones’ inhabit, are capable, they assert, of manipulation (by them) in order to create the conditions for their pre-planned ‘Synthesis’ (controlled outcome). The objectives are obfuscation and control.
• The Leninist duplication method, which includes the duplication of all institutions in the Party-State: the institutions of the Party are duplicated by the State, and vice versa. This means, in the Soviet context, that ‘socialist legality’ is meaningless, since decisions adopted by the Party are routinely negatived by the State, or the reverse as the case may well be, so that the controllers (resident in the Security Council which oversees all Leninist government structures, including the American model) maintain hegemony at all times. The objectives are obfuscation and control.
• The duplication of financial transactions, intended to obfuscate and, in the case described in our analyses published here in late July 2007, to provide cover for the ransacking of targeted wealth, behind the confusion generated by the existence of the duplicated assets, with the intention that in any dispute over ownership, the rug will always be pulled from beneath the feet of claimants, and the assets stolen as intended. The objectives are obfuscation and control.
• In the Wisconsingate context, we have observed multiple duplication operations being applied over an extended number of years, with the objective of providing the strategists with a perpetual option to compromise the target (Leo Wanta), that can be exercised at any time. The objectives are obfuscation and control.
• In the US housing market, title to a property is typically finalised when a corrupt lawyer requires the person who imagines that he or she will ‘own’ the property, to sign THREE top copies of the relevant documents. The corrupt lawyer will represent to the target that one top copy is required by the mortgage provider, another top copy by the bank, and a third top copy is for the ‘owner’ to keep on file. But on sale of the property or (more usually, the death of the ‘owner’), all of a sudden one of the holders of the triplicated ‘top copy’ is liable to appear out of the blue without warning, in order to convince the court that it is the rightful owner of the real estate in question. In this model, there are usually, as noted, three ‘top copies’ of the relevant documentation: but the underlying principle is the same: duplication. The objectives are obfuscation and control.
• In the context of the European Union Collective [EU], the godless monster spawned out of the daydreams of those Nazi Pan-Germans back in 1942, as we can see from their European hegemony blueprint published in Berlin that year, ‘Europaische Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft’ (European Economic Community), the primary Chapter headings of which correspond almost precisely with those of the Maastricht Treaty [see the Editors’ book, the New Underworld Order, available from this website, for details]. Duplication is the standard practice inside the bowels of this Luciferian supranational governance structure, which is just about to usurp the sovereignty of 26 nation states in one gulp. Specifically, the resuscitated European Constitution sets up the intended unaccountable European Government, called the European Council among ‘the Union’s institutions’ (Article 9). This Council is not to be confused, however, with the EU ‘Council of Ministers’, which has, in an example of the duplication-cum-obfuscation technique we are exposing here, suddenly renamed itself ‘the Council of the European Union’. The new EU Treaty states, by the way, that when the Heads of Government meet in Council, they are no longer to represent their own countries.
• In the context of the US Federal Budget, we can see ‘negative duplication’ applied. Specifically, the earmarked surpluses accruing to the so-called Trust Funds in the budget, are required by US Statute to be invested in the ‘Federal Funds’ that are employed for current expenditure purposes, which means that these surpluses are ‘corruptly’ applied for current spending even though they are earmarked. Since the ‘earmarked’ Trust Fund surpluses will be needed to meet onerous future obligations (welfare, pensions, etc), in order for the observer to be able to arrive at an ‘accurate’ estimation of the ‘background’ Federal debt (on the dubious basis of the Office of Management and Budget’s unreliable data), it is always necessary to ‘add back’ the Trust Fund surpluses not once, but twice – once, to account for the fact that these surpluses have been squandered for current expenditures, and a second time, to provide for the earmarked uses for which all these surpluses (derived from Social Security payments, etc) arose in the first place. The objectives are obfuscation and control of perceptions of the Federal Budget.
• Obsession with TWINS: Given their ingrained, feckless double-mindedness, and their conscious deployment all the time of duplication techniques for obfuscation purposes, these people have a hang-up and fixation about TWINS. At the most demonic level, they regard twins as ‘fair game’ for their ongoing experimentation aimed at replacing God with Man, which they seek to do by ‘creating life’ – imagining that they may be able to do this by studying TWINS, a phenomenon which baffles and fascinates them. They play around with twins in multiple unspeakable ways. By extension, this madness also embraces physical, non-human manifestations of twinning. In the European Union environment, Brussels has a mania for imposing ‘twinning’ arrangements upon towns and villages. Anywhere in the English countryside, when you come to a village, you are liable to see, on entering the village, that it is twinned with the French village of Guignol-les-Deux-Eglises, or whatever. In architecture, it is clear that certain structures are built with a ‘twinning’ purpose in mind.
Since construction of the Twin Towers began on 11th September 1971, precisely 30 years ahead of their deliberate destruction by explosives (curiously, not 32 years, but 30 years: perhaps 9/11 was brought forward by two years to fit in with the US electoral timetable?), and the atrocity took place for instance on the birthday of Feliks Dzerzhinsky, the founder of Lenin’s Cheka (KGB), we can see resonances that are typical of the mentality we are discussing. As for the Twin Cities, we publicised in the report dated 22nd April 2007 what we knew about a plan for detonations in the TWIN cities of Minneapolis-St Paul during the period of the Republican National Convention scheduled to be held there from 1st to 4th September 2008.
This information, which fell unexpectedly into the Editor’s hands, was immediately reported to authorities and was recorded in a notarised Affidavit. We publicised it following the Blacksburg atrocity in April this year. Employing ‘Black’ (Babylonian) numerology, the first day of the 2008 Republican National Convention devolves to 9/11: 9 = September; plus 1 (for the first day of the Convention) + 2 + 8 (2008) = 11 (9/11). An atrocity like this would ‘twin’ the 9/11 atrocity – one giga-atrocity at the beginning of the reign of George Bush II, and one giga-atrocity at its end.

(25D) A factor that has been excluded from this analysis because its inclusion would have injected a dimension so complicated that the residual patience of serious students of Wisconsingate might snap, is that when Leo was illegally arrested by Swiss authorities on 7th July 1993 without a warrant on the basis of a verbal State Department request on behalf of the State of Wisconsin, it was then alleged that Ambassador Leo Wanta owned vast amounts of money which he held in offshore bank accounts and further that he was evading the escalating unpaid unemployment compensation tax delinquencies of Falls Vending Service, Inc.. But in reality, the accruals held in his Title 18, Section 6 corporations were reported routinely to US authorities and audited by the General Accounting Office, and none of his bank accounts were secret, being known by the relevant US authorities. As recounted above, then Wisconsin Attorney General James E. Doyle, now the Governor of this State, wrote to Judge Michael B. Torphy following the sentencing of Leo Wanta on 20th November 1995, citing Case # 92CF683, and stating inter alia that he (Mr Doyle) had decided NOT to have the Court include the ‘Falls Vending’ amount (then standing at $646,918.91) in the intended court restitution order, because ‘I suspect that any attempts to collect such a large amount through the good offices of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections as part of a restitution order would be impractical, if not futile’ (the real reason being probably that he must have known that there was never any legal basis for the demand). Mr James E. Doyle added: ‘The State Department of Revenue will continue to avail itself of whatever civil remedies it may have in its collection efforts'. Doyle then misled the court by elaborating: 'For the Court’s information, the amount owed on defendant’s delinquent tax account as of November 20, 1995, was $646,918.91’.
However the WI Court Orders and the Appeal Tribunal Decision, together with the recent obituary of the actual owner of Falls Vending Service Inc., the late Jerome S. Engle, definitively prove that the Wisconsin State Department of Revenue’s escalating assessments against Leo Emil Wanta of the corporate tax delinquencies of Falls Vending Service Inc., represent unlawful, and felonious demands which can only be explained as an intentional means of harassment with a view, in the prevailing context, to attaching an unlawful lien to Wanta’s Settlement. It has also transpired that the WI Department of Revenue has been in the habit of amending the underlying description of the 'Falls Vending Service' corporate tax delinquencies, so that when it may have become clear even to their agents that they could not collect unemployment compensation tax delinquencies from Leo Wanta, they shovelled other tax liabilities into the pot, to 'buttress' their fraudulent claims, thereby compounding their unlawful operations designed to tie Leo Emil Wanta down (in order to cover the criminal thefts of Wanta's assets over which the CIA operatives Bill and Hillary Clinton presided). Having started these scams all those years ago, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue is going on with them as the least uncomfortable (for them) way of 'avoiding' self-incrimination.
This is not going to 'work', but it has been necessary to spell out the sordid detail here so that all concerned are aware of that reality.

(29) Letter from James E. Doyle, former Wisconsin Attorney General, now Governor of Wisconsin, to Mr John A Chavez (who was imposed on Ambassador Leo Wanta purely in connection with a court-ordered medical examination and who stayed on without authority, masquerading as Leo Wanta's Public Defender without having been so appointed either by Wanta or by the court), dated 10th June 1994: International Currency Review, Volume 33, #s 1 & 2, page 206: facsimile.
• Note: The episode when this Chavez fellow tried to goad Leo Wanta into sacking him, and the Ambassador declined, pointing out that as he had never appointed him in the first place, he could not fire him, was designed to 'legitimise' the false status that Chavez had arrogated to himself by masquerading as the court-appointed Public Defender, which was never the case. Had Leo taken up Chavez's invitation to fire him, such an act by Wanta would have retrospectively 'legitimised' Chavez's non-status as Leo Wanta's Public Defender, which would in turn have 'legitimised' the payment alluded to in this report (using this Editor's loan funds) of $4,167.64 by the Wisconsin State Department of Corrections per their cheque refs P 0524327/16183939 dated 4th August 2005 to the Wisconsin State Public Defender's Office. This payment was irregular and therefore represents a misapplication of the Editor's loan funds presented on behalf of Leo Wanta as 'Restitution'

(31) We have covered ‘Wisconsingate’ data at earlier stages of this crisis, specifically in: (a): The Supplement published earlier with International Currency Review, Volume 31, #s 3 & 4: ‘Wisconsin Taxation Gestapo Fraud: Special Investigation of Wisconsin Tax Oppression’; and (b): Website posting dated 20th March 2007. The so-called ‘FINS’ documents revealing the disposition of the DUPLICATED $27.5 trillion raised from 200+ international banks in 1989-92 were published in International Currency Review, Volume 30, #s 2 & 3, Winter 2004-2005, on pages 145-200, with a preliminary list of stolen funds on page 144; (c) In the ‘third reading’ of Wantagate: International Currency Review, Volume 31, #s 3 & 4, Fourth Quarter 2006; and (d) In the ‘fourth reading’ of Wantagate, International Currency Review, Volume 33, #s 1 & 2, on pages 173-240. This huge Wantagate issue is being distributed worldwide and will ensure that Wantagate can never be expunged from the record – serving not least as a reference work for the future, as well as the source of 'first-hand' intelligence on this millennial financial corruption crisis for the present.
(32) One further factor that has been excluded from the main narrative, again in order to ‘minimise’ complexity here, can be considered an additional obfuscation dimension. It can be illustrated by citing the following case: whereas the services of the State of Wisconsin Outagamie County Circuit Court were used for the purpose of certifying that the ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 had been ‘fully satisfied’ and was discharged as of 1st June 1993 [see narrative], Leo Wanta’s jury trial in May 2005 and later his sentencing on 20th November 1995 were held in Dane County, ‘enabling’ the controllers of this ‘takedown’ operation to withhold the tax discharge certified by Outagamie County Circuit Court, from the Dane County Court. Indeed, a ‘game’ played throughout has been to withhold court information generally: for instance, Wanta was never informed of the decision of the Wisconsin Supreme Court dated 30th December 2005, referenced in the correspondence from Gregg T. Frazier, Chief, Central Audit Section. Wisconsin State Department of Revenue, dated 30 October 2006. A culture of official State deceit, double-mindedness, perjury and subornation of perjury has prevailed, a component of which has been the device of withholding key court and Appeal Tribunal decisions both from the Dane County Court, and from the target, Leo Wanta. In other words, the Dane County kangaroo court jury trial in May 2005 was rigged, as in the USSR.
(33) A final important point to note is that the Outagamie Circuit Court- and Notary-certification that ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088 had been ‘fully satisfied’ and was discharged on 1st June 1993, occurred two years PRIOR to the Dane County kangaroo court jury trial, which was staged in May 2005. The action of the WI Outagamie County Circuit Court in discharging ‘Delinquent Tax Warrant’ # 44-00162088, was withheld from the Dane County Court, this being just one of many instances of subornation of perjury and prosecutorial misconduct in this miscarriage of justice.

‘Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some Judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both’.
NEW WANTAGATE ISSUE OF INTERNATIONAL CURRENCY REVIEW
An announcement about the new Wantagate issue of International Currency Review, (544 pages) and its 48-page Supplement showing the Wanta-related documents released by the Ronald Reagan Library by consent of the National Security Agency, will be posted in the near future, on the second (Books/Subs) panel, Home Page.
The Ronald Reagan Library documents prove of course that Leo Emil Wanta advised and served President Reagan personally. In the massive forthcoming Wantagate ICR, the Editor has assembled all the Presidential Pardons dished out by President Clinton, to demonstrate that the vast majority of those pardoned by that particular criminal US President were drug dealers, money-launderers, financial criminalists, murderers-for-hire, and perpetrators of abominations familiar to students of organised crime. It was with particular interest that the Editor noticed that some of those pardoned had been imprisoned for ‘Misprision of felony’*. This section, called ‘Pardongate’ will be found in the front part of the forthcoming issue. (One poor fellow was imprisoned for stealing four pounds of butter, which adds to our perception that, on the same penal tariff, the perpetrators of the financial crimes that we have had to expose, face several lifetimes in the US GULAG each).
