PELOSI’S TRAIL OF CORRUPTION
By Victor Thorn
When Nancy Pelosi became speaker of the House in 2006, she vowed to “clean the swamp” of congressional corruption. But with the Eric Massa scandal and information that her staff was notified of his questionable behavior five months earlier in October, GOP critics are asking, “What did she know, and when did she know it?”
This brouhaha, however, is simply a distraction in a much darker string of controversies surrounding “the Madame Speaker.” To understand Mrs. Pelosi, we need to first examine her family—the D’Alessandros—who’ve been in control of Baltimore’s political machine for years. Her father, Thomas, is known by some as the most corrupt mayor in Baltimore’s history.
Prior to securing this position, D’Alessandro served in U.S. military intelligence during WWII, whereupon, according to veteran reporter Wayne Madsen, on Sept. 25, 2006, he “broadcast wartime radio messages to Italy exhorting Italians to rise up against Benito Mussolini.”
On the surface, such an endeavor sounds commendable. But another participant in this operation was imprisoned gangster Lucky Luciano, who cut a deal with the feds. In return for convincing Sicilian Mafioso to assist the Navy in their war efforts, they would deport him back to Italy.
Once free, Luciano teamed up with Jewish crime kingpin Meyer Lansky; and as Alfred W. McCoy relates in The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, they began trafficking the drug into the United States. One of the primary entry spots used during this time was at Baltimore, which Mrs. Pelosi’s father oversaw after becoming mayor of the city in 1947.
This Jewish-Italian organized crime syndicate leads to Mrs. Pelosi’s long-standing allegiance to the Zionist cause. In a Nov. 14, 2006 article by Dan Pine for the Jewish Weekly, he quotes Sam Lauter, a San Francisco pro-Israeli activist, as saying of Mrs. Pelosi, “As far as the Jewish community is concerned, she feels our issues in her soul.”
In the same piece, Amy Friedkin, former AIPAC president and member of its board of directors, “noted that there is even a soccer field in Haifa, Israel named for Mrs. Pelosi’s family (the D’Alessandros).”
Mrs. Pelosi has also faced controversy for failing to report transportation costs paid by AIPAC and the Chinese government.
In mid-2006, she became involved in a murky scandal involving Jewish Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and dual Israeli-American citizen Haim Saban—an AIPAC donor and Democratic fundraiser. Although Pelosi avoided any legal consequences, suspicions arose over influence peddling, wiretaps and Rep. Harman’s appointment to the House Intelligence Committee.
Circumstances get even shadier when considering Mrs. Pelosi’s relationship with Robert DeMonte, federal administrator of HUD’s Region 9 in San Francisco. In 1991, the DEA made a billion-dollar heroin bust at a Hayward, Calif. warehouse in the Bay Area. Local newspaper Veritas USA chronicled DeMonte’s involvement in the importation of drugs, which forced him to leave office.
They added, “Nancy Pelosi and other prominent names were investors in the Hayward warehouse.”
Another less-than-reputable Pelosi colleague (and financial manager) is John Stewart, a HUD Region 9 real estate broker with ties to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
His company took over San Francisco’s historic Presidio citadel in 1995. Two years earlier, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev became its first civilian tenant. Soon, this enclave became a “globalist utopia” for New World Order leaders.
Researcher Ken Raggio uncovered in 1998 how Mrs. Pelosi, an investor in a real estate entity called Presidio Partners, “was instrumental in opening this property for Gorbachev.” In a June 22, 2008 article, activist Francisco da Costa called Presidio Partners the “Pacific Heights mafia.”
Further, Presidio Trust legislation was introduced to Congress by Mrs. Pelosi in 1996, and is now managed under the auspices of Stewart.
Readers should know that Gorbachev helped create Earth Summit Agenda 21—a notorious UN program, which promotes depopulation, open borders and “the radical transformation of the global society.” When Al Gore and Barack Obama mention “the transformation of America as we know it,” their guidebook is Agenda 21.
Raggio described how Pelosi “cheered the arrival of Gorbachev to the Presidio as a tenant.” In May 1995 The San Francisco Chronicle wrote about a Gorbachev Agenda 21 conference of global elitists to discuss “the future of the nation-state.”
Is “Obamacare,” being pushed so adamantly by Mrs. Pelosi against most Americans’ wishes, a part of the Agenda 21 protocols? While promoting Obamaesque “social justice” (i.e., redistribution of wealth), chapter six of Agenda 21 specifically states, “Agenda 21 must address the primary health needs of the world’s population, since they are integral to the achievement of the goals of sustainable development.”
To some, Agenda 21’s version of “sustainable development” is nothing more than coded language for a “duty to die.” Or, as Obama’s original healthcare architect Tom Daschle wrote in his book Critical, Americans should simply “accept the conditions that come with age.”
Without the candy coating, sustainable development means that once the government decides that you’ve “lived long enough” and are no longer a productive member of society, then you’ll simply have to get along without life-sustaining healthcare.
