Time Running Out on Nevada Crime Boss – Sheldon Adelson Looking at Options (Harry Reid)

Published: Saturday, 26 April 2014 Written by Chip Tatum 

Las Vegas – Federal authorities have been placed on alert as a Secret Federal Grand Jury has convened somewhere in the U.S. to consider charges that Sands CEO, Sheldon Alderson, has personal involvement of crimes admitted to by the Sands Corporation.

Sands is a group of Nevada based, International gaming companies.

The possibility of this scenario came to my attention while being held in Miami Federal Detention Center. The Federal prisoner in the cell next to mine came to me for advice. He had been approached by the Las Vegas FBI with the requirement to testify against his former associate, Sheldon Adelson, or face additional prosecution which could land him in Federal Prison for an additional 25 years. He further explained that his other former associates were being summoned to testify. He feared for his life and the life of his wife. Alderson is known for biting when cornered. And he has a very long reach.

I advised my neighbor that to spend 25 years more in Federal prison was a death sentence for him as his health was poor to begin with and the health care system was very poor in prison.

I received a message early this week that the process has begun. My friend, since released from Federal Prison after serving his term, was taken back into federal custody by authorities. His wife has been placed in the Federal Witness Protection Program to protect her from any attempts to silence her and her husband by the Adelson Organization.

A little history concerning the Adelson Organization is appropriate here for those of you who are unaware of his empire.

Federal Money Laundering charges where settled by the Sands Corporation in August 2013. Sands Corporation agreed to repay the federal government more than $47 million to resolve a money-laundering investigation which cast an unwanted glare on Mr. Adelson and his gambling empire. See Article

However, during the course of the investigation, numerous references to additional activities by the Gaming Boss and his staff led prosecutors to open investigations into those and other activities. His involvement in the Payday Loans arena and processing of internet gaming proceeds came into focus. Credible sources from within the Department of Justice have stated that investigations have proven fruitful to the point that a Federal Grand Jury has been convened in secret.

At the Federal level, Grand Juries can, and do, investigate criminal activity, especially organized crime.

Due to the Gaming Bosses purported past activities and tie into organized crime, Grand Jury witnesses have been entered into the Witness Protection Program, and stepped-up surveillance of the targets is in place.

Sources from within the Adelson organization have stated that, “There is a lot of movement going on. Attorneys and political contacts are involved in moving monies, selling assets, and preparing a backup to move them to a safe jurisdiction”. It is reported that the Adelson organization is using Israeli contacts to arrange flight to one of nine destinations. Negotiations with those countries are currently underway. These actions on the part of Adelson’s employees indicate that there may be an attempt to flee prosecution on the Adelson organization’s part.

Federal officials have beefed up surveillance of the members of the Adelson organization. “He has the contacts and ability to move quickly”, a Federal source has stated. Adelson has a fleet of Boeing 747’s and other aircraft with the ability to fly to hundreds of international destinations, including the destination on the top of Adelson’s amnesty list, China

Sources tell us that among Federal criminal violations currently being considered are:

  • 18 U.S.C. § 201 Bribery 18 U.S.C. § 1961–1968 RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act,)
  • 18 U.S.C. § 1956 Money Laundering• 18 U.S. Code § 1343 Wire Fraud
  • 18 U.S.C. § 158 et seq. Human Trafficking
  • 22 U.S.C. § 611 et seq. Violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)
  • 26 U.S. Code § 7201 – Attempt to evade or defeat tax

 

But the goings on behind the closed doors of the grand jury room have remained a secret.

Grand juries — first recognized in the Magna Carta, the English legal charter, in 1215 — have been around for centuries. But their procedures are unfamiliar to most people outside the legal system. The concept of the grand jury was so firmly established in the law that the Founding Fathers provided for grand juries in the Bill of Rights. The Fifth Amendment says that “no person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury…”

There are several reasons why grand jury proceedings are a secret. Witnesses appearing before a grand jury have a right to an attorney, but the lawyer must stay outside the room. Like trial juries, grand jury deliberations are conducted in secret. Only the grand jury, the prosecutor, the witness under examination, the court reporter and an interpreter (if one is required) may be present in the grand jury room. But unlike a trial jury, a grand jury does not determine guilt or innocence — only whether there’s probable cause to believe a person or persons committed a crime. Whereas a trial jury reaches a verdict on whether the accused is convicted or acquitted, a grand jury can decide whether to bring charges via a written indictment. The federal grand jury hears evidence presented by a federal prosecutor. Download the Federal Grand Jury Handbook

The grand jury has no investigative staff of its own, so it relies on the prosecutor’s information and expertise. The prosecutor shapes the case before the grand jury, deciding which witnesses will be called and what evidence to present. The grand jury may ask to call additional witnesses if necessary. It is customary for the prosecutor to question a witness first, followed by a grand jury foreperson. Then, other members of the grand jury may question the witness. Often the jurors will ask the prosecutor to ask a question, rather than asking it themselves. A witness may ask to leave the room to speak with their attorney but the lawyer is then at a disadvantage, having not heard the proceedings. A witness may also invoke the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and refuse to answer a question.

Federal grand juries are composed of 16 to 23 individuals selected at random “from a fair cross section of the community” in the district in which the grand jury convenes, according to the Federal Grand Jury Handbook. The names are generally drawn from lists of registered voters. Twelve of the minimum 16 members required to be present must vote in favor of an indictment before it can be returned.

The Grand Jury is set to hear testimony from a large number of witnesses. The witnesses being brought in from around the world include former associates of Adelson. Many former associates are serving time in Federal Prison, State Prison and/or are in the Witness Protection Program. On specific information received, the U.S. has summoned foreign and domestic officials who were found receiving monies for favors from Adelson and his special interest group. Several foreign law enforcement officers and politicians involved with Adelson in various illegal activities have also been summoned.

He reads just like the typical common-or-garden Global Bankster-Gangster from the Syndicate we all know and love…

I’ve noticed in the past that a variety of people in the news – for some reason or another – had frequented these “gaming rooms” prior to their notoriety. The thought crossed my mind a while back, that these gaming rooms were perhaps recruiting spots for the CIA, seeking a specific profile aka easily influenced, controlled and manipulative profiles. It was only a fleeting thought at the time…

Harry Reid’s Curious Soft Spot for Sheldon Adelson

May 8, 2014

The Senate Majority Leader has been blasting the Koch brothers and their mega-donations. Just don’t pick on his home-state casino magnate.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid takes regular swipes at multibillionaire brothers David and Charles Koch, but Nevada’s top political figure hasn’t mustered a whisper of protest for a Republican mega-donor standing in his own front yard: outspoken casino king Sheldon Adelson. It turns out the two are friends—at least that’s how Adelson described their relationship Monday at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas during an hourlong chat as part of the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration’s “Conversations on Being Successful” series.

With approximately 1,000 students and others filling Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall, Adelson held forth on his business philosophy and rise to power as a casino titan. When the topic briefly turned to partisan politics, staunch Republican Adelson raised eyebrows when he expressed affection and respect for Reid.

“Believe it or not, I’m a Republican but I’m still very friendly with Harry Reid,” Adelson said, adding that he had “great respect” for the Senate majority leader.

That respect, of course, hasn’t kept Adelson from dumping approximately $100 million into the unsuccessful Republican presidential campaigns of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

In an interview this week with MSNBC, Reid attempted to separate his disdain for the Kochs from his affection for Adelson.

“I know Sheldon Adelson,” Reid said. “He’s not in this for money… He’s in it because he has certain ideological views. Sheldon Adelson’s social views are in keeping with the Democrats on all kinds of things. So Sheldon Adelson, don’t pick on him. He’s not in it to make money.”

If Reid treats Adelson with kid gloves, the Kochs haven’t been as lucky. In a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday following the release of a report on the effects of global warming, Reid said, “Charles and David Koch are waging a war against anything that protects the environment. Now I know that sounds absurd, but it’s true,” he said. “These two billionaire oil barons are actively campaigning now, spending tons of money against anything that seeks to curb pollution, limit our dependence on fossil fuels, or lower our energy costs for working families.”

When asked recently why the senator appears to have been so hesitant to criticize Adelson, a Reid spokesperson said the Kochs were a special case. They were funding misleading attack ads.

In one of several media blasts last month, Reid chided, “The Koch brothers are trying to use their immense wealth to buy their way around the laws and regulations of this nation to make themselves even richer. Because for them, being fourth and fifth on the list of the world’s richest people isn’t enough. Here’s the rules they play by: They should be allowed to say false and misleading things about Obamacare, but we’re not allowed to criticize them for it.”

When asked recently why the senator appears to have been so hesitant to criticize Adelson, a Reid spokesperson said the Kochs were a special case. They were funding misleading attack ads.

Not that Adelson’s money hasn’t helped fund third-party attacks of dubious accuracy on Democrats. You would think Adelson, with his gargantuan donations to GOP presidential candidates and down-ticket political players, his staunch opposition to the Reid-supported legalization of Internet gaming and the casino titan’s nutty talk about nuking Iran, would at least rate a mention from the powerhouse senator.

Not a peep.

But there’s still time for Reid to find his voice.

Adelson, 80, says he plans to be even more politically active in future campaigns, and is willing to spend “whatever it takes” to see the Republicans prevail.

Does that mean Adelson might contribute to his friend Harry’s 2016 opponent?

Don’t bet on it.

Harry Reid has his investments in the Casino’s and Global Warming Scams – the latter being a front for all sorts of cattle land grabs from the people and sold for pennies to foreign agents.

.

The Koch Brothers are into oil which is taking money out of Harry’s pocket – land grabs for heavy metals, water etc…schemes he has with the Chinese….Rothchilds w/ Lord John Kerr acting as a Rothchild agent.

According to Harry –  Oil, Coal etc., bad for the environment but tax-money losing green projects and protecting the “turtle” are good, which is why he approved the BLM National Police FORCE agents as opposed to our local police officers.

As for headline and Syndicate Bankster-Gangster Sheldon looking for options – it appears he’s chosen the college speaking tour route…up to last month anyway.
