JERUSALEM - Eye witness describes moment she saw HUGE Hologram 'Strange Signs' in the Sky above Temple Mount, Jerusalem. However, there is more than meets the eye - the mystery of this event has a very sinister edge.

Please remember, they keys to Temple Mount are not in the hands of Israel at the moment.

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess ch 2 v 9-12

An R$E Production in Israel.


DEMONS AND COMPROMISE : The demonic entities which ( not who) are controlling the empire of evil, and through the globalization of banksters, and also the Satanists of the Khazarian mafia criminal network, they do not perceive the meaning of compromise! Compromise is a product of rational reasoning, in order to secure the continuation -evolution of all forms of life,and avoid destruction. The soulless entities have no idea about the meaning of compromise. They are not from this planet, or from this Universe either. They came here long ago ,before the destruction of their Universe .!!They have been created for one  reason: Destruction.

Any effort from the light forces has been in vain. Any agreement reached so far ,is been violated, using the time factor, just to manipulate conditions and circumstances, to lie and deceive.

We are not going to write about the origin of evil, and how these evil forces captured and destroyed America and almost all countries, from time to time.
Read more about the Empire of evil :
Most of the researchers and academics, came to the final conclusion, that the forces of evil, have no intention to abandon their agenda to annihilate humanity, and enslave the remaining 10% !!!!

..Taking into consideration all the info released, but also all the signs across the globe, it becomes quite obvious, that these forces are preparing for the final stage of their agenda.

We are not suggesting ,that they are going to succeed ,either on their intentions or on their agenda.

The so far success, on the implementation of their agenda, is based completely, on the corrupted, and on their payroll, polical slaves, politicians.

It seems to many observers, that humanity, has limited options to combate and neutralize, these forces of corruption and destruction.
Is it really this thesis correct or wrong ?




The Phenomenon of Time under Arrest, as has been explained and described by

Life is put on the pause mode. The flame which penetrates all forms of life is suspended. There is neither motion or dissolution.
This is not a process of going to sleep - this is putting existence totally on hold. Nothing is planned to age, because time will seem to stop. Linear Time, you realize, is only created on Earth as a perception to systematize the relationship between two people or two sequential incidents.

During the Mini Stasis, all members of the dark forces, their representatives, their minions, they shall be wiped out of Planet.Their leaders shall be arrested and sent to the Central Sun to be incriminated, and all  other members should be sent, either to the prison worlds of Edentia, or to
Rehabilitation centers

   On an ordinary day, while the media will still spread lies, the financial mob and the politicians will continue to pretend as if the whole world is being imperceptibly caught in their spider web, you will hear a heavenly sound that will put an end to this bustle, and it will come so suddenly that even those, who are well prepared, will “freeze into a rock”.
   On an ordinary day the world change will happen and all underground facilities and safeguards, aimed to save mortal life, cannot be reached, and all those elites, who believe they have made the best provision for themselves, will be caught by the undertow of time and plunged into nothingness.
   On an ordinary day, and the people from the Inner Earth (the Agarthans, ) will take over for a short period of time the command on the surface, until the new enlightened beings of the time will return to the earth and will give their elected holograms new impetus and a blissful life.
   On an ordinary day, the worlds will be separated, and this in a spectacle that has never been seen by a human and experienced by a living being on earth.
Asana Mahatari( Saint Germain )

America Descends into Madness

 America Descends into Madness

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor on May 26, 2017

President Trump : We,ll make America great again ! 

Light in the rock !

   Greatness has to do with :   Peace and prosperity,respect,fairness,loyalty,integrity,

justice,free will,freedom..etc.In order to be respected,one has 
to respect above all,human life.Not to sacrifice human life and 
destroying nations for money and profits for the few.The warmongers of the military-industrial complex,the banksters
and the Rochild,s Khazarian mafia syndicate.
That,s what happened so far in America. Pr.Trump promised a lot 
to the american people,before the elections.Anybody can go back
and watch everything is been said and promised,not only to the 
US voters,but to the whole world.
Is he going to keep his promises,and make America,great again?
Or, is he going to make a new < advanced and sophisticated >  fake version of the Empire of evil,by becoming the frond man of the deep state,and the political slave of the soulless entities of the dark cabal,and the powers that were !!


America Descends into Madness

This is another barn-burner from Gordon, an in depth look at the geopolitical train wreck in progress, with engineer Trump at the controls until his handlers decide otherwise. America faces a looming danger that most of the country is unaware of, and would not know what to do, if they were.

Those in charge of protecting us even view themselves as being neutered, in terms of doing anything about it. Any potential opposition powers have not only been infinitely fragmented, but set against each other politically-financially via as many wedge issues as possible.

But the powers behind the political strawmen never change, because the public does not really see them, nor do most even sense they are there. What Gordon is telling us is that we are going to have to up our game considerably to have any chance of turning this god-awful situation around.

Look at what is happening to the secular Syrian people, and consider what could happen to us when “they” feel it is time for the US to be Balkanized. And no, I am not kidding, not one bit… Jim W. Dean ]

Trump never openly embraced, to preserve some American leverage in world events. Trump’s real failure is making deals when the real deal is in leaving the table, particularly when at the wrong table.

Inept as Trump may well be, among the Likudists in Israel or the Bedouin princes in Saudi Arabia, he may well be what intellect, grace and talent is at the table. Trump is the clown bear in the nest of vipers.

Error has become “belief,” and a generation of American military leaders and diplomats have enthralled themselves to a cause defunct of purpose, deficient in reason, bereft of moral imperative. This is the military Donald Trump fell in love with.

It furnished him with leadership of sufficient ethical ambiguity as to implement a soulless agenda without a second thought. These were trained professionals, the generation of Rumsfeld and Cheney, a nation primed for feudal fascism.

Our point is simple; Trump is in Israel and Saudi Arabia because his corrupt regime is controlled from there. His actions aim at Iran and are based in error in thought and error in execution. He is a fool.

His error also demonstrates something far more sinister, that he is a puppet, a vassal and dreams of being a medieval warlord. His lack of wit, lack of character, his lack of attention, his boorishness and whoredom are wonderfully at home in Saudi Arabia and Israel, where such characteristics have defined leadership for generations.

On May 21, 2017, American President Donald Trump announced that Saudi Arabia has put together a 55-nation force of 34,000 men to fight terrorism in Syria and Iraq. Trump agreed, without consultation or approval of the US government, to participate in that endeavor and agreed to sell Saudi Arabia, over a period, $.5 trillion in advanced arms previously denied to any foreign government.

This, the most corrupt presidency in American history, is flirting with disaster, blending its proclivity for pandering and bullying with ineptitude and more than a tinge of unbridled insanity. Toss in endless Saudi billions and Israel’s “exceptionalism” and a poisonous stew results.

We then move on to the new “coalition,” an abuse of the term if there ever was one. The members of the coalition, we assume, are all Sunni states, but no one knows exactly who they are. We know Israel isn’t officially a member but sets policy in partnership with Saudi Arabia.

Less well known are the connections between Saudi Arabia’s justified as defensive war against Yemen and other conflicts including the overthrow of Ukraine, the populist or more appropriately neo-Nazi government in Poland, moves against Armenia, not to mention the Syrian issue. This indicates, to the trained observer, that Russia may well be the real target. Toward that end, we will examine how and why Russia might be the target.

We also know that this anti-extremist and anti-terrorist coalition consists of nations who have trafficked jihadists to Iraq and Syria to join rebel groups there. Among those nations are the economic supporters of those groups as well, buying modern weapons for “rebels” and sending in military trainers and planning staff. They are even manning command centers for rebels inside not only Jordan but in Syria and Iraq as well, serving side by side with Israeli forces against the Baghdad and Damascus governments.

As things come into focus, Trump seems to be assembling a cabal to go after Russia the nation. The problem being is that to Trump, Russia isn’t its people or its government, Russia is his “Russia,” those who reached out to him when he was broke, busted, bankrupt, and flooded his failing enterprises with money.

That money was stolen from the Russian people, looted from banks, illegally converted state enterprises, and Trump’s Russia is the Russian Mafia, sometimes called the Kosher Nostra or the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia, the list of partners behind the Bayrock Group, all “Russian” but all enemies of the Russian people and in many cases, fugitives from Russian justice as well.

These crime syndicates were the vultures that fed off the chaotic period at the end of the communist era, partnering with the CIA, Mossad and other intelligence agencies, working with corrupt American and Israeli political leaders, money laundering banks, with the intent of building a criminal empire that would be above the law.

These cabals, which Trump represents, enjoy seeing Russia accused of interfering in elections in the United States or mischaracterized as a military dictatorship. Their control of press assets maintains a continual misdirection for the world public, one equally corrupt governments are happy to take part in as well.

..If I always stayed on the mountain top
And never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate God's love
And would be living in vain…
..I have so much to learn
And my growth is very slow,
Sometimes I need the mountain tops,
But it's in the valleys I grow

- Jane Eggleston~

,,,,,* Father did not create evil although he did create the gift of free will. In so doing he created the potential for evil. Evil did not originate with Lucifer either, though we would maintain that he orchestrated a wholesale conversion of potential evil to actual evil through his persistent choice and promotion of evil*.,,,

...Speaking about Light vs Dark, we are not referred to the Lucifer,s rebellion in the Satania System,in our Universe of Nebadon,but the wars in Heaven,started the second Day-Night of The Cosmic Creation,as stated in Secret Doctrine of HP Blavatsky....If “God” is Absolute, Infinite, and the Universal Root of all and everything in Nature and its universe, whence comes Evil or D, Evil if not from the same “Golden Womb” of the absolute? Thus we are forced either to accept the emanation of good and evil, of Agathodaemon and Kakodaemon as offshoots from the same trunk of the Tree of Being, or to resign ourselves to the absurdity of believing in two eternal Absolutes!

DARKNESS AND LIGHT IN CREATION. The old testaments referring to creation of cosmos……HE raised himself from the bottom of the infinite and found himself sitting on the lotus flower. And HE asked HIMSELF .Who am i. Where I ‘m going. And the LOGOS said. BE LIGHT.AND IS BEEING LIGHT. What was before that. At the beginning was only chaos . Chaos is the pre existence ideation of existence and non existanse.Is the preexisting unconditioned CONDITION or the conditioned NON CONDITION in which we breath and we act. ’THAT's the Ideation of existence and non existanse’ married with MAYIA. the FATHER and MOTHER of the CREATOR. Chaos is THAT covering the INFINITE through ETERNITY before creation of COSMOS and in between DAYS and NIGHTS of BRAHMA. Does darkness pre existed before light. Does darkness is a self existing element or condition’ same or similar to chaos’ as is being defined before. Since Chaos is UNDEFINED to anybody's perception’ darkness is considered to be the lack of light and therefore is an after light conditioned CONDITION

Light is a primary element and thus is the essence of creation. It ‘is in everything’, from the lowest’ to the higher levels of life. Light is the outbreathing - DAY’- CREATION of BRAHMA. ‘Within ’ these Days the LORDS OF THE ANCIENTS DAYS are implementing the DIVINE PLAN The mind born SONS of BRAHMA ‘the SEVEN KOUMARAS. The FLAMES or the SAGES of all UNIVERSES. Each ONE destined to rule each DAY the kingdom of their FATHER.

Before manifesting HIMSELF as light and cosmos, GOD stayed in the so called GOLDEN EGG for two divine years in dream state . Golden egg is the stage of ideation in between chaos and manifestation.The stage before BIG BANG. Is been written a lot about big bang and scientist know that the chain of sequences produced after big bang, in no way could be motivated by the elements of coincidence or by accident or lack of reasonable cause.The repeated conditioned sequences after the big bang phenomenon, lead scientist to the conclusion that the HIGHEST INTELLIGENCE SHOULD BE BEHIND THIS with reasonable CAUSE.

The latest scientific discoveries about the galaxies slowing speed at the last frontiers, of UNIVERSE expanding within the infinite’, are just verifying the big cycles and the PHENOMENON OF THE DAYS AND NIGHTS OF CREATOR ‘the MANVANTARA and PRALAYA of the eastern THEOSOPHICAL theories.

THE DAY IS THE OUT-BREATHING OF THE CREATOR’ the manifestation of HIM as light and cosmos through matter and it last 4’320’000’000 billions years. Through light and matter HE Covers the waters of the INFINITE until the ZERO POINT.As mentioned before the slower in speed of expansion drives to the NON SPEED STAGE or ZERO POINT. At this stage the universal rules of gravity seized to exist ’and the result is’ the beginning of the DISSOLUTION of the PHENOMENON COSMOS OR UNIVERSE .The rules of the REVERSING SEQUENCES drives everything in complete desolation and return to the PRIMARY SOURCE of COSMOS ‘ as NON PHENOMENON or the NIGHT OF BRAHMA or the stage of PRALAYA .At this stage GOD remains for another 4’320’000’000 billions years DREAMING the next stage or level of creation or the next DAY.

Old testaments are stating that when FATHER decided to create MAN HE ordered HIS Sons to do so.Out of the SEVEN ‘four obeyed ‘to their FATHER ‘Two denied to take part and the last one disagreed and doubted his FATHER'S order.That is the time of the FALL.The great Ajura- Lucifer’ or the Fallen Angel, he doubted his FATHER.Then’ the curse was pronounced.His destiny through eternity by falling into the realms of darkness.He became the LORD of darkness and the eternal doubt and adversary to his FATHER plan.

What is the meaning of doubt.It means motive’- intention- ‘plan -‘design and the will to find the ways, to prevent the implementation of his FATHER divine plan,and also to succeed on his Creative destruction plans.._I can create better than YOU _‘Ajura said to his FATHER.That is the secret of doubt and the fall into the darkness.We know that the three divine aspects of DEITY ARE:




These aspects embodied the whole creation and also the evolutionary process through eternity.No one can add on this creative prototype or template.Therefore what the fallen Angel or satan meant by doubt his Father's will, that something in excess was in the template.Neither the first aspect of the WILL or the third aspect of the WISDOM.So satan ‘he deducted the aspect of LOVE of his creative template.Thus he disconnects his creation, from universal soul, and the eternal Light and the divine plan and evolutionary process.

It is well known that evolutionary process is based on the so called pairs of opposites. It is the battle within the realms of Imperfection which leads to perfection.The seven KOUMARAS the mind born suns of GOD the time they came into existence they knew everything the same time.They were born in their essence and image like their FATHER.So a theosophical question is raised.From where the seeds of EVIL came from and why the great FALL.It is a question without answer.The only thing we can say in respect of the above, is that some mystics are stating, that evil, in a mysterious way is service to the light. In addition to this, nothing is outside of the SOURCE.

SPIRIT is the essence and motivating element of life.In simple words spirit is the highest level of MATTER and matter is the lowest level of spirit.In lower levels matter is the vehicle for the soul and in a higher level soul is the vehicle of spirit.

By definition matter is related to imperfection.Through matter and soul GOD is implementing in different stages of existence ’the divine plan ‘with the LORDS OF THE DAYS in charge. As it was mentioned before when GOD ordered His Suns to create Man out of the seven’ four obeyed to their fathers’ order. That is the beginning of the history of MANKIND or Humanity 900’000 years ago in Lemuria. Since then planet EARTH was inhabited by extraterrestrial civilisations .

At that time no questions raised by the DEITIES involved in the creation .One of the secrets kept since recent times and revealed by master Tibetan…..through Helen. P. Blavatsky ’ in Secret Doctrine’, was the participation of one high level master of the left hand. We know also that the CREATORS of man, they created him in their essence and image like THEM. The impression given to the others on Earth, was, that the new creation should assist them by doing hart jobs i.e workers.

The true story begun 300’000 years ago when they ruled the planet earth’ high intelligence Beings’ from the Dark side’, who following the orders of their masters’, they conducted experiments with the humans DNA. It is well to mention that man was created with twelve strands of DNA. With these experiments, they succeeded to close the ten strands of DNA. .They considered the experiment very successful’ but nobody knows GOD will’ , and their civilization was destroyed by the SOURCE. What the masters of the Dark Side didn’t know until recent times ‘was the attachment and hiding of the ten strands of DNA’ to the ASTRAL body or the Universal Soul.

....Atlantis era,is been the highest civilisation reached so far on Earth,and is been a time of full joy,until the militants,representing the Dark side took the power.Controlling thereafter by all means,all aspects of life,destroying all, connected or related to Light..It is considered to be also the fall of Humanity,because that times the collective didn,t responded to the militants plans,in any way.Only showing apathy to the unfold events,and this resulted as an additional factor,to put the Planet under guarantee and isolation,from the rest of the Galactic Family and the whole Universe.

The story continues during the times of ATLANTIS, one of the highest extraterrestrial civilizations on earth. It is mentioned in old scriptures, that Atlantis era is being a time of full Joy. But the masters of Light from different galaxies of LIGHT set up the biggest trap in the history of mankind,and maybe,in the whole multiverse. It is one of the rare times that the masters of Deception have been deceived, in such a degree by the masters of Light. Dark forces prevailed, and at the end, Atlantis civilization was completely destroyed.. The last part of the game between Light and dark is not yet completely finished.

We are at the end times…

The story continues…….

Alien Warning Message Live on TV in UK - "We Come to Warn you About your Race and your Planet"

Published on 20 Jan 2017

Southern Television was the first known victim of television hijacking. On the 26th of November 1977 at around 5:10 pm, an "alien" managed to interrupt the broadcast of the local ITV station Southern Television via the Hannington transmitter.

The voice overrode the UHF audio signal of the early-evening news being read by the late Ivor Mills from ITN.

A speaker interrupted transmissions for six minutes and claimed to be a representative of an "Intergalactic Association". Reports of the incident vary, some calling the speaker "Gramaha" or "Vrillon" or "Gillon", others "Asteron".

The voice, which was disguised and accompanied by a deep buzzing, broke into the broadcast of the local ITV station Southern Television, overriding the UHF audio signal of the early-evening news being read by Ivor Mills from ITN to warn viewers that "All your weapons of evil must be removed" and "You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace."

The interruption ceased shortly after the statement had been delivered, transmissions returning to normal shortly before the end of a Looney Tunes cartoon. Later in the evening, Southern Television apologised for what it described as "a breakthrough in sound" for some viewers. ITN also reported on the incident in its own late-evening Saturday bulletin.
The broadcast took over the sound only, leaving the video signal unaltered, aside from some picture distortion.

VT has identified Erdogan himself as one of the biggest criminal forces in the world.
General Flynn, who as White House Security Advisor, was paid $530k by Turkish intelligence, is said to have agreed to aid Turkey’s secret police in “eliminating” political enemies inside the US, not just Gulen but Armenians as well. From Michael Rubin at Newsweek:

Turkey has never been known for its respect for human rights, but one of the most troubling aspects of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s rule has been Turkey’s increasing aggressiveness toward dissidents and political opponents, not only within Turkey’s borders but also abroad.
Continue reading

Press covering for Turkey but other nations paying off Trump and company as well, only Flynn got caught and is being thrown under a bus
Read post

The Stolen Valor of Michael Flynn 

 -Remember, it was Flynn that failed to inform anyone he was on the payroll of Turkish intelligence while sitting through CIA briefings. This is the same Flynn who was going to help Turkey kidnap Mohammed Gulen, a cleric known to stand up to Turkey’s Hitleresque dictator Erdogan, the man paying Flynn’s legal fees.

This is the same Turkey that has been openly supporting not only ISIS but al Qaeda as well and has for many months secretly employed General Flynn and his son as “agents” but to what capacity? Kidnapping for sure, but what else?

This week, high power lawyer Robert Kelner, representing former General Michael Flynn in his quest to keep out of prison, wrote a letter about Flynn’s military service that requires careful examination. Valor and sacrifice in combat is not a joke and, minimally, Flynn owes combat veterans an apology in our estimation for claims made in this letter. You decide:

Trump to Silence Flynn over Turkish Death Squad Operations in AmericaHouse immunity deal or pardon for Flynn's silence over secret assassination program
-In the Milli Istihbarat Teşkilatı (MIT), Turkey’s national intelligence service, this has meant the establishment of six new undersecretariats, each appointed by Erdogan. Reorganization is not the problem.

The most significant change, however, is what Tremblay calls “special operations.” This new unit has been discussed openly in the Turkish press. This signals not only continued Turkish covert operations in Syria and Iraq but, according to Turkish sources, in Europe and the United States as well. Indeed, what Tremblay does not discuss is that one of the reasons for the new special operations undersecretariat has been Erdogan’s frustration at push-back from MIT veterans about his plans to be more active in the United States. The MIT veterans argue—correctly—that Erdogan risks their long-term relationship with the Central Intelligence Agency by running operations in the United States. Rather than heed their advice, Erdogan’s response has just been to transfer, reorganize, and purge in order to put political loyalists in place.

The first question then becomes, what sort of operations is Erdogan planning to run–or already running–in the United States? There have been several diplomatic pouches delivered to the Turkish embassy filled with cash, according to people who heard some of the couriers and Turkish diplomats brag. More cash was reportedly delivered when Erdogan last visited the United States. The second question then becomes what is the purpose of the cash transfers? Are some of the law firms and registered foreign agents acting on behalf of the government of Turkey receiving more money than they declare? Or is money going to support organizations that are acting as un-registered foreign agents or channeling cash into campaigns?

There’s more to Turkey’s US operations. Put aside actions by Sabah and Anadolu Agency employees that seem to go beyond journalism. And put aside intelligence reporting on the local Turkish community which Turkish-funded mosques transmit back to Ankara. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and other US law enforcement agencies should be concerned by the growing incidents of those who have criticized Erdogan—be they followers of Gülen or traditional secularists and liberals—being photographed by those reporting to the Turkish embassy or its various consulates. More troubling have been growing reports of Turks whose loyalty is in doubt being followed home and having their houses photographed.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence may declare it is the Trump administration’s intention to improve relations with Turkey. That is all well and good, but let us hope that Pence and others ask their intelligence briefers some very specific questions about not only what the Turkish government is doing behind-the-scenes with regard to the Islamic State, but also what it is doing in its embassy just down the street from the Vice President’s residence.

What we have evidenced is that the massive Turkish secret police, the MIT, has been loading up with cash here in the US, buying help in Washington, like with the $530k spent on General Flynn who agreed to help them with a kidnapping and what else?

Remember, this is the same organization that channels hundreds of millions to ISIS, that sells ISIS oil and that brought Sarin gas into Syria from Georgia and killed thousands.

Now Trump and his team are welcoming them here and have a strategy to protect them by using “executive privilege” and congressional immunity ploys to protect their plan to run foreign death squads inside the US.

The Turkish MIT is the heart of ISIS. Earlier this month, according to Syrian sources on the scene, the MIT transferred 950 Turkish fighters, pretending to be ISIS, from al Bab to Raqqah, in what was described as a massive Turkish victory. The ISIS forces in al Bab had, according to our sources, always been working for the MIT, looting Syria, factories, antiquities and oil.

Is Trump going to give them an office in the West Wing?

VETERANS TODAY : How Erdogan MAKE DEALS With US Neocon Gangsters, the Kosher Nostra : By Gordon Duff

Learn who Mike Flynn and Rudy Giuliani really work for and why they are stabbing America in the back while Trump smiles

[ Editor’s Note: This case could turn out to be the “Gone with the Wind” movie of high-level corruption, in that Americans will have a front-row seat to watch how politically rotten and corrupt their government and society are.

This case could reveal like no other that it not only goes all the way to the highest levels of political leadership, but into the highest ranks of our judiciary.

The Intel community is intimately aware of this long-running problem, as such people, whether they are ex-attorneys general or not, have national security-risk profiles based not only on what they have done in the past that is now widely known publicly, but what they are capable of doing if certain entities were to request it, including foreign ones.

Legal representation in mega cases can often be based not on attorneys’ legal prowess, but their ability to get a case fixed. And that is often based on their past reputation of being “untouchable” from holding past top government positions and their ability to get a fix in with the highest possible current sitting officials, meaning the White House, where a case gets killed for “national security” issues.

This could turn out to be the mother of all corruption cases; and before it is over, the indictment list might grow to include some people who felt they were beyond the reach of the law for being charged with obstruction of justice… Jim W. Dean ]

… by Raffi Bedrosyan

Special for the Armenian Weekly and Veterans Today

In a small courtroom in Manhattan, New York, there is a legal drama playing out, which may have serious consequences for the U.S., Turkey and Iran, but more critically for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. This court case is a ticking time bomb, which may explode in President Erdogan’s face, despite all his clandestine efforts to diffuse it.

Reza Zarrab, a 33-year-old Turkish citizen of Iranian descent, was arrested in Miami on March 17, 2016, as soon as he got off a plane. He stated that he had come to the U.S. with his wife and daughter to see Disney World.

But the three charges against him were serious—conspiring to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran, money laundering and bank fraud. He was promptly transferred to a New York jail, where he currently sits. And the connection to President Erdogan? Read on, as this is an international thriller in the making.

For several years, the U.S. had slapped sanctions on Iran to contain Iran’s nuclear ambitions. The U.S. had imposed strict controls on all international banks and corporations, banning them from doing any business with Iran. Therefore, Iran faced great difficulty getting paid for its oil exports. A couple of Iranian businessmen, Babek Zenjani in Tehran and Reza Zarrab in Istanbul, stepped up to circumvent the sanctions.

Oil payments would be made to companies and banks in Turkey, huge amounts of gold would be bought with those funds, and then the gold would be exported from Turkey to Iran, directly or perhaps with a few stops in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and other places in between. This scheme, although very simple, required huge amounts of money and gold transferred on a daily basis, which would undoubtedly attract the unwanted attention of government officials.

That problem would be addressed by generous bribes, commissions, and police protection. When you are moving billions of dollars daily, a few hundred million dollars to government officials is just the cost of doing business.

So, with the system set up in Iran and Turkey, Reza Zarrab quickly became a “gold trading” tycoon in Turkey, making headlines with large donations to religious charities linked to Erdogan as a philanthropist, marrying a popular pop star singer, and buying several mansions along the Bosphorus.

Erdogan’s government also bestowed Turkish citizenship on him with a special decree. There were a few mishaps in the scheme, such as 1.5 metric tons of gold seized in the cargo of an airplane in Istanbul by a “misguided” or “uninformed” customs official, who was promptly suspended and sent to “exile” to the interior part of Turkey.

But the scheme blew up and came out in the open on Dec. 17, 2013, when Turkish police, or rather, a certain section of Turkish police not loyal to Erdogan, arrested Reza Zarrab and the sons of three cabinet ministers, along with a few bank leaders.

They had indisputable evidence including wiretaps, videos, telephone conversations, and documents proving the large amounts of bribes passed on from Zarrab to the ministers and bank officials. The evidence also included money counting machines in living rooms, several million dollars in shoeboxes, expensive gifts, and money being delivered to the ministers’ homes in suit bags. All the dirty laundry came out.

One of the most interesting telephone conversations released by the investigators and reported by several media outlets was between Erdogan and his son, when Erdogan instructs his son to get rid of all cash in the house, after he hears about the raids to his ministers’ houses. His son’s response after several hours of frantic work reveals that despite all his attempts to distribute the cash at home to colleagues, relatives, or associates, there is still some 30 million euros left at home.

Despite the evidence, Erdogan did manage to escape the investigation unscathed, fired the three ministers, and also fired all the police officials and prosecutors involved in this operation, claiming that this was a conspiracy and coup attempt by the followers of Fethullah Gulen, the Muslem fundamentalist preacher living in exile in Pennsylvania. Most of the police officials and prosecutors are now in jail, and a few lucky ones have fled the country.

Reza Zarrab was released from prison in two months, in Feb. 2014. His defense was very simple: “If you don’t release me immediately, I start talking.”

It is not known why Zarrab chose to come to the U.S. Perhaps he decided to seek protection there, albeit in jail, instead of facing attempts to silence him in Turkey. Meanwhile, his partner in Iran, Babek Zenjani, was arrested and sentenced to death for defrauding the Iranian Oil Ministry for four billion dollars.

The Zarrab affair gets even more interesting in the U.S. The man who brought the charges against Zarrab was Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York—a star attorney who made his name as a fearless prosecutor of Wall Street wrongdoers. Erdogan’s concern about the Zarrab case was evident when he asked former Vice President Joe Biden to intervene. But luckily for him, just as the case against Zarrab started moving, the new president Trump fired Bharara, along with hundreds of other Obama appointees.

Zarrab has hired nearly 20 elite white-collar criminal lawyers to defend him. The last two hired lawyers are especially noteworthy, Rudi Giuliani, former New York Mayor and U.S. Attorney, and Michael B. Mukasey, the former U.S. Attorney General, who have promptly met top Turkish government officials. The presiding U.S. District Judge Richard Berman has asked defense lawyers to explain Giuliani and Mukasey’s role in the case, and to disclose if the government of Turkey is paying their fees.

Prosecutors claimed that the hiring of Giuliani and Mukasey might present a conflict of interest because their firms also represent some of the banks alleged to be victims in Zarrab’s case. Prosecutors also said that Giuliani and Mukasey were hired to try to reach a political settlement in the case.

In another twist, Mukasey’s son, Marc, has been widely speculated as a candidate to become the New York U.S. Attorney under Trump, to replace Preet Bharara. The Zarrab case will be one of the agenda items when Erdogan meets Trump in the next few weeks.

This thriller involving power, bribery, corruption, oil, and gold will come to an end soon, but it is highly doubtful that justice will be served…

From the UK Daily Mail:

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan have accused former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and ex-Attorney General Michael Mukasey of going above their heads in order to get charges tossed against a Turkey-based business mogul. Giuliani and Mukasey were hired to defend Reza Zarrab, who was arrested last year in Miami, for allegedly laundering money for Iran.

In their effort to get Zarrab’s case tossed, Giuliani and Mukasey want to meet with President Donald Trump’s officials, instead of speaking with prosecutors on the case directly. Zarrab’s attorneys sent a letter to the judge on the case saying that what Giuliani and Mukasey are up to ‘quite frankly is none of the government’s business’.

Zarrab, a 33-year-old gold-trader, was arrested in Florida last year for allegedly laundering money for Iran. In the year since Zarrab was arrested, his case has grown ever more complex and far-reaching.

As Turkey presses the Trump administration to get the charges tossed, an increasingly messy web of connections has come into view, prompting questions about conflicts of interest, Turkish corruption and pro-Turkey lobbying by individuals near the center of Trump’s orbit.

On Friday, federal prosecutors raised fresh concerns about a recent trip that Giuliani and Mukasey made to Turkey to consult with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about the case.

Zarrab, a 33-year-old gold-trader married to a Turkish pop star, and several others are accused of conspiring to evade US sanctions against Iran, using a network of companies to mask the true nature of transactions and defraud multiple banks.

Prosecutors say they processed hundreds of millions of dollars for Iran and claim to have thousands of pages of bank, email and phone records to prove it. Zarrab pleaded not guilty.

It’s not surprising the involvement of Giuliani and Mukasey would raise red flags. Giuliani, one of candidate Trump’s staunchest supporters, advises the president, in an unofficial capacity, on cybersecurity. Both his and Mukasey’s law firms have represented bank victims in Zarrab’s case, which prosecutors say may be a conflict of interest.

Trump fired Preet Bharara (pictured), the US attorney who launched the case against Zarrab. Giuliani’s company has also registered as a foreign agent for Turkey, a trait shared with another of Trump’s advisers: Michael Flynn.

The former Trump national security adviser had to register retroactively for work he performed in 2016 that could have benefited Turkey’s government. At the time, Flynn was a Trump campaign adviser. There have been no indications Flynn ever lobbied on Zarrab’s case.

Flynn’s foreign agent filing says his intelligence firm was hired by a company owned by a Turkish businessman close to Erdogan, and conducted research into a Muslim cleric and Erdogan foe who also emerges in Zarrab’s case.

If there’s intrigue about the defense team, it extends to the prosecution. Last month Trump fired Preet Bharara, the US attorney who launched the case against Zarrab, as part of a purge of Obama-era prosecutors.

Bharara was dismissed even though Trump made a point during the presidential transition of asking him to stay. Bharara’s possible replacement: Mukasey’s son, Marc Mukasey, who is frequently mentioned as a contender. That could put the younger Mukasey in charge of prosecuting the man his father has been trying to set free.

For Turkey, the saga is bigger than Zarrab’s case. It has its origins in a massive 2013 corruption scandal in Turkey involving allegations of bribery, fraud and smuggling. Zarrab and Turkish state-owned bank Halkbank were at the center of the storm. Homes linked to several top Erdogan lieutenants were raided and three sons of Turkish ministers detained.

Erdogan dismissed the allegations as a conspiracy by Fetullah Gulen, the Muslim cleric who lives in Pennsylvania and leads a global movement of schools and charities. The corruption scandal eventually subsided. Yet it contributed to a dramatic falling out between Erdogan – then Turkey’s prime minister – and Gulen, whose movement had long been allied with Erdogan’s party.

The rivalry has only grown worse. Turkey has been feverishly seeking Gulen’s extradition from the US after blaming him for a failed coup attempt last July that killed more than 270 people.

Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, had to register retroactively for work he performed in 2016 that could have benefited Turkey’s government. Gulen denies involvement in the coup, and the US has said Turkey’s evidence is unconvincing.

Although the Turkish charges against Zarrab were ultimately dropped, his subsequent arrest in the US has brought fresh attention to concerns about corruption in Turkey. Worsening matters for Erdogan, the deputy CEO of Halkbank, Mehmet Hakan Atilla, was arrested in New York this week on charges of conspiring with Zarrab. Turkey’s response has been forceful. Erdogan’s government has argued that Atilla’s prosecution is politically motivated.

And at a meeting this week with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu offered another explanation: Bharara, the former Manhattan prosecutor, is loyal to Gulen. ‘He retweets or likes everything that is anti-Turkey,’ Cavusoglu said.
