The Rise & Sudden Fall of Eliot Spitzer
By Mark Glenn
When the scandal involving former New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer and his tryst with a $5,000 a night prostitute named “Kristen” was injected, like an informational narcotic, into the American consciousness, most people merely chalked it up as yet one more corrupt politician caught with his pants down.
But there may be more to this than hypocrisy and infidelity. The hidden hand of Israel appears.
Don’t assume Spitzer’s infidelity was an isolated event. Realistic persons can assume, rightly, that U.S. political figures are as rare at businesses peddling flesh as gravediggers are at cemeteries. Immorality seems to be a political requirement in New York. New Gov. David Paterson and his wife, Michelle both announced extramarital affairs.
The now infamous Emperor’s VIP Club providing “services” to Spitzer was operated by Mark Michael Brener, an Israeli national who, when arrested, was in possession of two Israeli passports and, some reports said, $600,000 in cash. The connection between the state of Israel and the international trafficking of pornography, prostitution, and the sex slave business (that is legal in Israel, provided the slave is not Jewish) is a well-founded fact. Gangsters from the “Russian Mafiya” (which Jewish American writer Robert Friedman “outed” as being not as much Russian as Jewish) have made Israel their home away from home in running their international operations and enjoy close ties with Israel’s Mossad.
In both his books, By Way of Deception and The Other Side of Deception, former Israeli intelligence officer Victor Ostrovsky details how one of Mossad’s primary functions was entrapping important persons involved in politics, business, media and whatnot into compromising and embarrassing positions so as to make them more “pliable” to the demands of the Jewish state. The fact that the Emperor’s Club was operating on an international basis indicates that it was connected with the intelligence services of a foreign country that could offer it protection and cover. The “escort service” may have served a dual role as a blackmailing operation for America’s power elite.
Supposedly, the whole affair was discovered as a result of “financial irregularities” that triggered an investigation in 2006 that made its way up to the Justice Department. How fortuitous, then, for the war-hungry neocons that the story broke shortly before the “resignation” of Adm. William Fallon, commander of CentCom.
As commander of all military operations in the Middle East, Fallon was the one man standing in the way of George Bush and his neocon “crazies” (Fallon’s words) from attacking Iran. He made it clear on several occasions that an attack on Iran would not happen on “his watch” and signaled his absolute opposition to widening an already disastrous war to include Judea’s ancient enemies in Persia.
News was leaked a week prior to Fallon’s “resignation” that he might be “relieved of duty” by President Bush. Then, almost by magical coincidence, there is Spitzer caught in the middle of everything, and during the days when Fallon’s story would have gotten traction. Tragically, the sacking of the one man who could have delayed Armageddon is washed down the memory hole.
If this was a deliberate political hit and Spitzer was not some innocent bystander caught in the cross fire, there are several reasons why he would have been targeted ahead of others. As a Jew he committed a capital offense within his community when, as attorney general for New York state, he investigated powerful Jewish groups, including the World Jewish Congress. Tasked with receiving, handling and distributing reparations for Holocaust survivors through one of its adjuncts, the “Claims Conference,” Spitzer’s investigation concentrated on “financial irregularities” within the organization.
A story appearing in the Israeli publication Ynetnews of 2006 (the same year the investigations directed by and against Spitzer took place) entitled “Where Did the Shoah Money Go? details how a pittance of the billions collected in Holocaust reparations actually makes its way into the hands of survivors while at the same time executives of the WJC and Claims Conference spend millions on lavish trips for themselves annually.
Ynetnews discussed Spitzer’s investigation as well as his “grave” report on the matter, that revealed “apparent financial irregularities amounting to millions of dollars, administrative deficiencies and circular transfers of $1.2 million from the accounts of the WJC in New York to a bank account in Geneva. . . . From there, the money found its way to a private bank account in England and from there to an account in the name of a private company called Solar. . . . Upon opening of the investigation, the money was returned. . . .”
The piece went on to describe how the money was used by officials of the WJC for lavish trips to Paris, Berlin, Rome, Vienna, Geneva, Rio de Janeiro, Budapest, London, and Tel Aviv. In one case involving thenpresident of the organization Israel Singer, it was revealed that in one year’s time he personally spent almost half a million dollars on first-class plane tickets, posh hotel rooms and sumptuous meals. In addition, Spitzer’s investigation revealed Singer withdrew as much as $750,000 in a year’s time for “expenses” related to “Shoah” business that obviously would be written off as a tax deduction.
