Political connections

Organized crime

International financiers

  • CIA and military-industrial crowd associated with Carlyle Group
  • Zionist Frank Lowy (significant control over De La Rue)


  • George Soros? - while greatly overblown by conservatives, a tenuous connection does exist: Soros associate Lord Mark Malloch-Brown is the chairman of Smartmatic, the former parent company of Sequoia which still holds onto its intellectual property; more importantly, the chairmanship of Smartmatic by a neoliberal globalist associated with Soros should put to rest the allegations of Smartmatic being a Hugo Chavez front
