A mysterious trillion dollar lawsuit filed on November 23, 2011 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, claims that 134.5 billion dollars worth of gold was secretly given to the U.S. government in the mid-1930s by the then Nationalist government of China for safekeeping. [1]


The lawsuit claims that 1934 U.S. Federal Reserve notes were issued to the Chinese government, and the gold transferred to the Federal Reserve Bank. [2]


It is claimed that a total sum of almost one trillion dollars representing both the principal and accumulated interest of the 1934 Federal Reserve notes was fraudulently taken from the plaintiff, Neil Keenan, an agent for the owners, a mysterious Asian entity called “The Dragon Family.”


What makes the lawsuit worth paying attention to is that involves the unresolved June 2009 case of two Japanese citizens caught on a train in Italy while traveling to Switzerland with 134.5 billion dollars in US Federal Reserve notes, bonds and other financial instruments. [3]

The U.S. District Court lawsuit supports claims by David Guyatt, author of The Secret Gold Treaty, that missing World War II era national gold reserves have been intentionally kept out of public circulation (“black gold”).


Furthermore, the lawsuit reveals a coordinated international effort to launder, trade and defraud owners or investors of bonds and other financial instruments issued against the “black gold”.


At the heart of this internationally coordinated effort, according to Guyatt, is the Bilderberg Group - which in 1954 played a key role in the passage of a Secret Gold Treaty. What this paper will show is that what lies behind the Bilderberg Group’s involvement with “black gold” is to provide long-term funding for a globally coordinated ‘second’ Manhattan Project.


The ultimate goal of this globally coordinated project is to comprehensively deal with a subject so vast and complex as to dwarf the resources of any one nation - extraterrestrial life and technology.



U.S. District Court Lawsuit involving the Dragon Family

The U.S. District Court lawsuit has aroused considerable controversy over its authenticity and the ownership of the 134.5 billion in Federal Reserve notes, bonds and other financial instruments.


The lawsuit was filed by William Mulligan Jr and Justin Gardner from Bleakley Platt and Schmidt, a reputable New York law firm. [4]


The principal plaintiff in the lawsuit, Neil Keenan, claims to have been defrauded by a number of official government agencies and political figures including a little known organization called the Office of International Treasury Control (OITC), and its principal officers Dr Ray Dam (President) and David Sale (Deputy Chief of the Council for Cabinet of OITC).


On the other hand, Sale claims that Keenan and his accomplices fraudulently gained possession of the bonds from the OITC. Importantly, neither of the two parties contesting ownership of the bonds dispute their validity.


Financial Instruments seized at Chiasso, Italy








The core claim of the November 2011 District Court filing is that the bonds apprehended in Chiasso, Italy in June 2009 by the Italian financial police were genuinely issued by the Roosevelt administration in exchange for gold deposited by the Nationalist Government of China some time before the Japanese invasion on July 7, 1937.


The lawsuit states:

Upon information and belief, between 1927 and 1938, as a result of arrangements made between China and the United States, the United States… leased vast amounts of gold from the nationalist Chinese Government, known as Kuomintang.


During this period, China was partly occupied by Japanese troops and there was a fear of China being overrun by the Japanese. [5]

The lawsuit goes on to claim that the 134.5 billion dollars of gold given to the U.S. government was only a small percentage of the total gold held by China’s nationalist government, or the Kuomintang.


The total was estimated to be “thousands of trillions” in value - which seems like an impossibly high estimate given current knowledge of world gold reserves. According to Wikipedia, 165,000 tons of gold are known to exist - at the current market price of $1700 per ounce, this comes out to approximately 10 trillion U.S. dollars.


Thousands of trillions would be gold reserves of approximately 20 million metric tons or more.

Whatever the total value of gold acquired during the millennia of China’s dynastic rulers it is reasonable to believe that much of it was successfully hidden from Japan, and subsequently taken out of mainland China by the Kuomintang prior to the Communist takeover in 1949.


According to Benjamin Fulford (the former Asia bureau chief for Forbes Magazine from 1998-2005 before he became a spokesperson for the Dragon Family in 2007) the gold transfer was secretly conducted by the U.S. Navy which in 1938 took possession of the gold via seven destroyers to the U.S. mainland. [6]


These events occurred in conformity with the 1934 Gold Act and President Roosevelt’s 1933 Executive Order (6102) which prohibited private ownership of gold, and instructed private citizens to sell all their gold to the Federal Reserve Bank at a prescribed rate of $20.67.

Here is how the lawsuit describes the actual transfer of the gold and roles played by the U.S. Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury in issuing the financial instruments that were eventually seized in Chiasso, Italy:

…following the promulgation in 1934 of the Gold Reserve Act, the law required all bullion gold and gold coin to be surrendered to the Federal Reserve… Foreign Gold held by the Treasury was also surrendered to and thus leased to the Federal Reserve, which resulted in the issuance of the series of 1934 Notes by the Federal Reserve.


These Dragon Family FRNs have never been redeemed and, upon information and belief, the accrued interest was met by the subsequent issue of certain 1968 series of Kennedy Bonds. [7]

The lawsuit then goes on to explain how Swiss banks acted as intermediaries:

…this gold was documented into accounts through the Union Bank of Switzerland, placed under protection of the Swiss Attorney General, registered through the Swiss National Bank into the Bank for International Settlements (“BIS”) International Collateral Combined accounts and then from within the BIS, blocked to form the Institutional Parent Registration Accounts of the Federal Reserve System. [8]

Most important was the procedure for redeeming the Federal Reserve notes which the lawsuit describes:

…in order to effectuate this process, the Notes were printed to appear as if they were not produced from official origin and bear obvious imperfections, therefore easily deniable.


However, when proper procedures are followed, the number of the Note and other linking identical data allows ultimate authentication and verification through the Federal Reserve System screening process… [9]

This apparently was why original press reports of the 134.5 billion seized at Chiasso concluded they were forgeries.

The lawsuit describes the owners of the Federal Reserve bonds as follows:

The Dragon Family is, in fact, a highly secretive and informal organization that operates between old families within China and Taiwan, above the political divide of the two independent Chinese Governments. [10]

Later in the lawsuit, the “old families” are described as "group of Asians of royal blood known as the Dragon Family” - the remnants of China’s former Celestial Kingdom. [11]


The Dragon Family initially wanted to protect the gold reserves entrusted to them from Japan and later communist authorities.


Currently headed by a mysterious General Haan, the Dragon Family had unsuccessfully attempted to redeem the bonds over several years through their signatory Yamaguchi.


The Dragon Family subsequently appointed Neil Keenan to take charge of the Bonds in early 2009 with the purpose of lawfully redeeming them for,

“a wide range of global humanitarian purposes.”

At a certain point in complex negotiations, Keenan instructed the two Japanese citizens - Akihiko Yamaguchi and Mitsuyoshi Watanabe acting as couriers for “The Dragon Family” - to transport the bonds to the proper Swiss banking authorities for their ultimate redemption.


The detention of Watanabe and Yamagushi, and confiscation of the 134.5 billion in bonds by the Italian financial police on the border town of Chiasso, according to the lawsuit, was part of an elaborate attempt to steal the bonds by a host of actors.


In addition to the Office of International Treasure Control and its principal officers, the named targets of the lawsuit include,

  • the Italian Financial Police

  • the Italian government and former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi

  • the World Economic Forum and its banking head, Giancarlo Bruno

  • the United Nations and its Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon


David Sale and the Office of International Treasury Control

The case outlined in the lawsuit is very complex and details what appears to be an elaborate attempt to defraud Neil Keenan of bonds entrusted to him by the Dragon Family.





Keenan is described as a US citizen currently residing in Bulgaria who first come into contact with the Dragon Family in August 2008 due to his political connections, and assistance with bank contacts in Cyprus.


The principal parties named in the lawsuit are,

  • Dr Ray Dam and the Office of International Treasury Control (OITC) which he founded

  • a senior OITC officer, David Sale

  • Daniele Dal Bosco who is described as having gained possession of the bonds in September 2009, and entering into an agreement with the OITC

The lawsuit contests:

  1. the execution of a written agreement between DAL BOSCO and defendants OITC and SALE, with the full knowledge and authority of DAM, whereby DAL BOSCO openly repudiated his duties as custodian of the DFFI [Dragon Family Financial Instruments, e.g., Federal Reserve notes, etc., seized at Chiasso, Italy];

  2. the issuance of an illegal and utterly baseless Cease and Desist Order under which OITC asserted the thoroughly and knowingly false proposition that the DFFI was, in fact, in the lawful possession of the OITC, which has acted for decades with impunity and under the asserted umbrella of protection allegedly accorded by the United Nations. [12]

Prior to the lawsuit being filed in November 2011, David Sale gave a series of interviews back on April 7, April 12 and May 10, 2011, on the popular internet radio show, Rumormill News, Sale told the host Rayelan Allan, that in 1995 the head of the OITC, Ray Dam, had been given exclusive rights to the “collateral accounts” of all the gold secretly hidden during the World War II era, by descendents of a world wide association of exiled royal families - “the Hierarchy”. [13]


Included in the list of royal families named by Sale are the descendents of the Hapsburgs, Savoy, Romanovs and many other royal families who collectively owned, according to Sale, two million metric tons of gold.


According to Sale, the Royal Families handed over ownership of the “collateral accounts” once they realized that redemption of the 50 year bonds making up the “collateral accounts” would be challenged by powerful financial institutions from around the world.


Dr Ray Dam, also an alleged royal family descendent, was tasked with the job of redeeming the bonds for the purposes of world wide humanitarian projects.


The OITC website explains:

On January 20th 1995, Dr. Ray C. Dam was appointed International Treasury Controller, and Legal Heir and Owner of the Combined International Collateral Accounts [hidden national gold reserves] of the Global Debt Facility, with full authority and dispositional control of same, under Legal Decadency RCD 1088, executed by the Nations of the World.


Also established on January 20, 1995 was The Office of International Treasury Control, as the management, administrative and operations organization for His Excellency, Dr. Ray C. Dam. [14]

According to Sale, the Federal Reserve bonds discovered at Chiasso Italy in June 2009, are part of the “collateral accounts” entrusted to the OITC, and were stolen by Keenan.


Sale further claims that he has documentation that Neil Keenan is in fact a CIA official who in collaboration with another CIA agent that had infiltrated the OITC, Keith Scott, had stolen the bonds from the OITC.

How credible is David Sale?


His core claim that Ray Dam was entrusted with all the “collateral accounts” of national gold reserves historically taken/stolen from royal families sounds fanciful. Yet Sale’s credibility is vouched for by Rayelan Allan who along with her ex-husband, Gunther Russbacher, was involved in locating and repatriating missing national gold reserves for several decades.


Russbacher is of Austrian descent and his father was in Nazi Intelligence, and emmigrated to the US after the war, in 1954. Allan claims to have assisted Russbacher in the secret relocation of Austrian national gold reserves looted by NAZI Germany, from the Philippines back to Austria in 1994.


She provided documentation concerning the Austrian gold transfer to the investigative journalist David Guyatt, author of the first book dealing with looted and missing national gold reserves, The Secret Gold Treaty (2000). [15]




Guyatt found Russbacher and Allan to be credible and described in some detail their role in relocating Austrian gold reserves which he described as a single transfer of 500 metric tons, though Allan claimed the total was much higher with multiple transfers (totaling an astonishing 500,000 metric tons).


According to Allan, the OITC is authentic and Sale is telling the truth in exposing Neil Keenan as a CIA operative trying to steal the Federal Reserve bonds discovered by Italian authorities in June 2009. [See update 1/18/12 below]


What certainly doesn’t help Keenan’s lawsuit is the claim that somehow Dal Bosco gained possession of the Dragon Family Financial Instruments (DFFI) in September 2009.


If the DFFI were seized by the Italian authorities in June 2009, how did Dal Bosco gain possession three months later before handing them off to the OITC?


This is not explained in the lawsuit, and the reader is left to assume that the Italian Financial police somehow handed the Federal Reserve notes and bonds seized at Chiasso to Dal Bosco.


Why and how is not clearly explained in the lawsuit, making it difficult to imagine that the lawsuit will succeed. So while the lawsuit appears genuine enough and was lodged by a reputable law firm, its failure to explain the alleged transfer of the financial instruments seized at Chiasso into Dal Bosco’s possession does raise questions over the legal strategy behind the lawsuit.

On the other hand, Keenan’s authenticity and the legitimacy of the lawsuit is supported by Benjamin Fulford and D. Wilcock, who runs the blog site, Divine Cosmos. [16]


In an interview, Fulford claimed that 85% of the world’s gold was acquired over the millennia by China’s dynastic rulers. [17]


If the world’s known gold reserves of 165,000 metric tones is 15% of the real figure, that means that approximately one million metric tons of missing gold reserves exist elsewhere. Much of this missing gold allegedly remains under the control of the Dragon Family whose interests Keenan was representing in the case of the Chiasso incident.


If the Keenan’s account in the lawsuit is accurate, the Chinese gold transferred to the US Federal Reserve Bank in the mid-1930s is only the tip of the iceberg. Entrusting the Federal Reserve notes and bonds to Keenan appears to have been calculated gamble.


In fact, Wilcock (and Fulford) refers to the actions of the Dragon Family as being an “elaborate sting operation.” [18]


They were fully aware that their bonds would very likely be taken from Keenan at some point, but believed that the eventual lawsuit would be the catalyst for the rest of the world learning about the way in which China’s and other national gold reserves have been secretly taken out of circulation for decades.

As mentioned earlier, Keenan’s account is strongly challenged by David Sale, Ray Dam, and the OITC who have been trying since 1995 to bring attention to the way in which national gold reserves were secretly taken out of circulation since the Second World War era.


Along with Rayelan Allan who with her former husband, Gunther Russbacher, were also involved in efforts to bring public attention to missing national gold reserves, it is very possible that Keenan is part of an “officially sanctioned” attempt to co-opt and publicize such efforts; or he may simply be part of a “Dragon Family” sting operation to publicize the history behind the bonds as suggested by Fulford.



The Secret Gold Treaty & 1954 Bilderberg Meeting

Regardless of the controversy over ownership of Federal Reserve bonds behind the trillion dollar lawsuit, both Keenan/Dragon Family and Sale/OITC agree over the bonds’ authenticity.


Most importantly, both parties agree that the bonds were issued by the US Federal Reserve bank against gold reserves leased to it during the Second World War era.


The national gold reserves of nationalist China, in Keenan’s/Dragon Family lawsuit version of historic events (somewhere in the range from one to 20 million tons); or the gold of most of the worlds exiled royal families in the Sale/OITC version of events (two million tons) dwarf in size the known world gold reserves of 165,000 tons.


The most telling fact to emerge from the lawsuit is that the vast majority of the world’s gold has been hidden away from public knowledge and scrutiny for decades.


As David Guyatt explains it back in 2000:

…the full story of the nature of gold has yet to be told, and my guess is that it will remain hermetically sealed amongst the few for a very long time to come. Two things are certain, however. The historical official mining figures for gold are patently false and have been knowingly fabricated and thrust on an unsuspecting public.


Second, and leading on from this, it is, therefore, evident that gold is not at all rare. Current statistics show above- ground stocks of the metal to total about 140,000 metric tones. The reality is far, far higher and, in all probability, is well in excess of one million tonnes.


I doubt anyone really knows for certain, owing to the fact that so much is still buried in the Philippines and elsewhere in Southeast Asia that tallying it all up is impossible - even to this day. [19]

his historic gold deception can only have been achieved by the concerted efforts of central banks with the approval of senior government officials from around the world in order to manipulate national monetary policies.


Guyatt succinctly describes the situation:

As we shall see, it is almost certainly the case that these "others" are a group of nations who were party to a secret agreement to exert control over plundered World War II gold and other assets and to ensure these did not enter the banking system or otherwise be utilised without such nations’ approval. [20]

After reviewing a number of documents describing the movement of Gold, David Guyatt concludes that the secret agreement happened in 1954:

In the light of the foregoing, it is hard not to conclude that some form of “secret treaty” may well have been signed in 1954 that involved the recovery of World War II plunder - both European and Asian - and that a portion of it was subsequently used in US military and intelligence "black operations." [21]

As to where this secret treaty was negotiated and even signed Guyatt settles on the first ever Bilderburg meeting:

Whatever else might have happened in 1954 … one event cannot be overlooked. This was the first ever meeting of the Bilderberg group during 29-31 May 1954. That first meeting was dominated by American, British and then German participants who filled 36 of the available 67 slots. [22]

The 1954 Bilderberg meeting had multiple reasons to convene.


The public justification was that it was held to promote political and economic cooperation between Europe and North America as the best defense to what was now perceived as the long term threat of communism. To that end, prominent business and political leaders have been regularly invited to Bilderberg Group on an annual basis to discuss ways of coordinating national policies and anticipating global trends.


The annual meetings of some of the worlds most powerful public figures has naturally led to much curiosity over the Bilderberg Group’s origins and goals.


Here is how best selling author Daniel Estulin describes the Bilderberg Group:

In 1954, the most powerful men in the world met for the time under the auspices of the Dutch royal crown and the Rockefeller family at the luxurious Hotel Bilderberg in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeek. For an entire weekend, they debated the future of the world.


When it was over, they decide to meet once every year to exchange ideas and analyze international affairs. They named themselves the Bilderberg Group. [23]

Estulin goes on to conclude that since 1954, the Bilderberg Group has become a shadow world government:

…they have gathered yearly in a luxurious hotel somewhere in the world to try to decide the future of humanity… the Bilderberg Group has grown beyond its idealistic beginnings to become a shadow world government, which decides in total secrecy at annual meetings how their plans are to be carried out. They threaten to take away our right to direct our own destinies. [24]

Among the many notable individuals involved with Bilderberg Group meetings over the decades since its formation, Estulin gives special mention to the role of Henry Kissinger who was a protégé of the Rockefeller brothers.


Estulin describes some of Kissinger’s work for the Rockefellers and the Bilderberg Group since the 1960s:

As far back as the mid-1960s, the Bilderbergers placed Kissinger in charge of a small group consisting of James Schlesinger, Alexander Haig and Daniel Ellsberg. Working with them was the Institute of Policy Studies chief theoretician, Noam Chomsky… In the ‘60s, Kissinger’s team and Chomsky were creating the “New Left" as a grassroots movement in the U.S. to engender strife and unrest. [25]

Later in the 1970s, Estulin describes Kissinger’s role in the removal of President Nixon:

Kissinger was responsible for brainwashing and confusing President Nixon… With Nixon’s resignation, the Bilderbergs finally saw “their president, Gerald Ford, move into the White House. The New World Order’s yes man took direct orders from Henry Kissinger, an agent of David Rockefeller, a servant to the Bilderbergers. [26]

While Estulin identifies some of the Bilderberg Group’s key players, he only captures the surface layer of the Bilderberg Group’s origins and goals.

The deeper secret justification for the Bilderberg Group’s creation was to encourage global cooperation in response to a perceived long term threat known to the key actors in forming the Bilderberg Group: the Rockefeller brothers; Prince Bernard of the Netherlands; and a key Rockefeller protégé, Henry Kissinger.


This long term threat was only shared on a need-to-know basis, and emanated from World War II events involving Nazi Germany’s advanced technology programs.


Events which Nelson Rockefeller and Kissinger were deeply involved - the existence of extraterrestrial life and technology.



Project Paperclip and advanced Nazi technology

There is significant evidence that Nazi Germany had partially succeeded in developing highly advanced technologies gathered from extraterrestrial sources.


The first source were a number of expeditions by Nazi SS Ahnenerbe research teams that searched for ancient advanced technologies buried remote locations such as Tibet, or knowledge recorded in historical texts. [27]


Authors such as Zecharia Sitchin, Erich Von Daniken and others have cited extensive historical evidence of ancient astronauts and the knowledge they left behind. [28]

The second source was reverse engineering downed extraterrestrial craft that had been discovered by Nazi authorities in the mid 1930’s. [29]


Lt Colonel Phillip Corso, who was a senior officer in charge of reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations, gave support to such an event in an interview:

There were crashes elsewhere, and they [the Germans] gathered material too. The Germans were working on it. They didn’t solve the propulsion system. They did a lot of experiments on flying saucers. They had one that went up to 12,000 feet.


But where all, we and they, missed out was on the guidance system. In R&D we began to realize that this being [an extraterrestrial] was part of the guidance system, part of the apparatus himself, or itself, as it had no sexual organs." [30]

The partly successful efforts by top Nazi scientists in understanding ancient historical texts discussing advanced technologies, and reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology was a major factor in Nazi Germany’s advanced weapons technology program.


This led to the Nazis prolonging the war effort in order to fully deploy these new weapons systems.


This is confirmed by Captain Edward Ruppelt who was the initial Chief Investigator for US Air Force Project Bluebook:

"When WWII ended, the Germans had several radical types of aircraft and guided missiles under development. The majority were in the most preliminary stages, but they were the only known craft that could even approach the performance of objects reported to UFO observers…" [31]

As the Second World War drew to a close with the inevitable defeat of Nazi Germany, the Nazi SS began to secretly remove its most advanced technologies, projects and scientists to sympathetic countries in Latin America.


Importantly, the relocation of these advanced technology projects was also accompanied by the movement of looted Nazi gold reserves, as David Guyatt explains in his book, The Secret Gold Treaty:

Russbacher told the BBC journalist that huge quantities of Nazi gold had been shipped to South America, via Spain, just prior to the close of World War II. The loot had sat in South America for a number of years, but as soon as its existence became known to Israeli intelligence the plunder was immediately transferred to the Philippines and hidden, Russbacher said. [32]

President Roosevelt appointed Nelson Rockefeller to the position of “Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs” in the Office of Inter-American Affairs in 1940.


Rockefeller was responsible for a program of US cooperation with South American nations, and to counter rising Nazi influence in the region. With the help of the FBI which at the time had field offices in South and Central America, Rockefeller led counter-intelligence operations in order to find the relocated Nazi technology projects and the looted gold.

While Rockefeller was dealing with Nazis in South America during the Second World War, in Europe, a top secret effort to repatriate Nazi scientists in order to utilize their expertise was begun by US Army’s Counter Intelligence Corps.


‘Operation Paperclip’ involved the removal of hundreds of Nazi scientists to the well funded military-scientific laboratories created to produce weapons for the war effort. [33]



Henry Kissinger and Operation Paperclip

A little known figure in ‘Operation Paperclip’ was a young German speaking US Army intelligence officer with a German Jewish background - Henry Kissinger.


Kissinger was born in Fuerth, Germany on May 27, 1923, and served in the Army Counterintelligence Corps from 1943-46.





At the close of World War II, he stayed on active duty in occupied West Germany.


He was assigned to the 970th Counter Intelligence Corps Detachment, among whose ‘official’ functions included the recruitment of ex-Nazi intelligence officers for anti-Soviet operations inside the Soviet bloc. [34]


Kissinger’s detachment, in reality, was playing a key role in ‘Operation Paperclip’ - a role that would mark him out in military intelligence circles as someone who had the keen intellect and strategic thinking abilities that could handle the most important strategic policy issue facing the US - how best to respond to an undisclosed extraterrestrial presence. [35]

Kissinger returned to the US, and in 1947 began his university education as an undergraduate at Harvard University. Kissinger, however, retained his ties to the military, as a Captain in the Military Intelligence Reserves. This enabled him to continue to play a role in issues pertaining to the extraterrestrial presence as the policy at the highest level of the Truman administration was being developed.


By 1950, Kissinger was now a graduate student and was working part time for the Department of Defense. He regularly commuted to Washington - as a consultant to its Operations Research Office which was under the direct control of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.


The Operations Research Office ‘officially’ conducted highly classified studies on such topics as the utilization of former German operatives and Nazi partisan supporters in CIA clandestine activities. Kissinger’s official duties were once again a cover for his role in coordinating the recruitment and utilization of former Nazi scientists in clandestine projects involving the reverse engineering of extraterrestrial technology.

In I952, after completing his PhD, Kissinger became a consultant to the director of the Psychological Strategy Board, an operating arm of the National Security Council for covert psychological and paramilitary operations.


Kissinger’s role expanded to dealing with the extensive policy issues surrounding the extraterrestrial presence. Kissinger’s inside knowledge of Operation Paperclip and the extraterrestrial presence, combined with his strategic thinking abilities, marked him as someone who would rapidly assume a prominent position in the decision making hierarchy.

In 1953, President Eisenhower chose Nelson Rockefeller to be in charge of reorganizing the U.S. Federal government.


Rockefeller from 1953-59 was Chairman of the President’s ‘Advisory Committee on Government Organization.’ In addition, in 1954 Eisenhower appointed Rockefeller his Special Assistant for Cold War Planning, a position that officially involved the ‘monitoring and approval of covert CIA operations’.


This was a cover for Rockefeller’s true role in coordinating U.S. and allied response to the presence of extraterrestrial life and technology. [36]

Soon after his appointments to the Eisenhower administration, Rockefeller met with Kissinger and became greatly impressed by the latter’s intellect and strategic insights.


This is what Kissinger said about his 1954 meeting with Rockefeller 25 years later in a Eulogy Kissinger gave for Rockefeller in 1979:

That Nelson Rockefeller is dead is both shattering and nearly inconceivable.


One thought him indestructible, so overpowering was he in his energy, warmth and his deep faith in man’s inherent goodness. For twenty-five years, he had been my friend, my older brother, my inspiration and my teacher.

I first met Nelson Rockefeller when, as an assistant to the President, he called me, a graduate student, to join one of the panels of experts he was forever setting up to ponder the nation’s future. He entered the room slapping backs, calling each of us by the best approximation to our first name that he could remember, at once outgoing and remote.


Intoxicated by the proximity of power, all of us sought to impress him with our practical acumen and offered tactical advice on how to manipulate events. [37]

Kissinger’s role in the clandestine operations, his close relationship with Nelson Rockefeller, his intellectual abilities, all combined to lead to a steady increase in his influence.


Rockefeller and others running clandestine organizations understood the danger in not coordinating clandestine policy towards extraterrestrial life and technology, with the more conventional foreign policy issues that were the focus of public attention. They were acutely aware of the potential threat posed by an extraterrestrial presence whose technological capacities far exceeded humanity’s.


The very first Bilderberg meeting in May 1954 was set up with all these considerations in mind. Most importantly, however, was the fact that the first Bilderberg meeting occurred soon after another major event that is yet to be disclosed to the public.


That is President Eisenhower’s alleged meeting with a delegation of extraterrestrials at Edwards Air Force base in February 1954.

A number of whistleblowers have claimed to have either directly witnessed, or seen documents/film of one of the most important diplomatic meetings ever held in human history. [38] The core story is that President Eisenhower secretly traveled to Edwards AFB to meet with a delegation of extraterrestrials over the weekend of February 19-20, 1954 in a final attempt by the latter to halt America’s thermonuclear weapons program.


Apparently, the extraterrestrial delegation wanted to persuade Eisenhower to use his personal authority to put an end to the development of the Hydrogen bomb whose destructive capacities far exceeded the more primitive nuclear fission bombs used on Japan.


The extraterrestrials offered to help the U.S. develop spiritually and ethically before introducing advanced technologies that could also be used for weapons of mass destruction. Eisenhower’s national security team was firmly opposed to the extraterrestrial’s overtures.


This is how one alleged witness described the scene and the conflict between Eisenhower’s national security advisors:

My dear friends:

I have just returned from Muroc [Edwards Air Force Base]. The report is true - devastatingly true!… When we were allowed to enter the restricted section (after about six hours in which we were checked on every possible item, event, incident and aspect of our personal and public lives), I had the distinct feeling that the world had come to an end with fantastic realism.


For I have never seen so many human beings in a state of complete collapse and confusion, as they realized that their own world had indeed ended with such finality as to beggar description. The reality of the ‘other plane’ aeroforms is now and forever removed from the realms of speculation and made a rather painful part of the consciousness of every responsible scientific and political group…


President Eisenhower, as you may already know, was spirited over to Muroc one night during his visit to Palm Springs recently. And it is my conviction that he will ignore the terrific conflict between the various 'authorities' and go directly to the people via radio and television - if the impasse continues much longer.


From what I could gather, an official statement to the country is being prepared for delivery about the middle of May. [39]

The date of May for Eisenhower’s tentative extraterrestrial disclosure announcement is an important clue to the timetable decision makers were using to decide what to do about the extraterrestrials concerns over nuclear weapons.


The diplomatic meeting failed and less than two weeks later, America tested its largest ever hydrogen bomb on March 1, 1954 - the Bravo Test’s 15 megaton yield was 1000 times more destructive than the bomb used at Hiroshima.


Rather than move forward with a May 1954 Disclosure announcement, Eisenhower instead approved keeping the existence of extraterrestrial life a closely guarded secret.


In May 1954, what happened instead was approval for a meeting of global elites under the auspices of the Rockefeller family - the very first Bilderberg meeting:




Recordings from the first Bilderberg meeting

Oosterbeek, Netherlands, 1954





Bilderberg Group and Global Manhattan Project

The main task of the Bilderberg Group was to coordinate the developed nations of the world so that any information gained by any nation pertaining to extraterrestrial life and technology was to be sent to the right place for research and development.


A highly secretive second Manhattan project that had begun in the United States under President Truman to deal with the extraterrestrial presence was expanded to include other nations in a globally coordinated effort.


Eisenhower’s election in November 1952, offered his chief supporters, the Rockefeller Family, the opportunity to have greater corporate involvement in the now secret ‘Global’ Manhattan Project.


Nelson (left) & David Rockefeller


The Rockefeller brothers (Nelson and David) along with Henry Kissinger, were instrumental in shaping the Eisenhower government’s response to the extraterrestrial presence using Cold War covert operations as a cover, and helping set up the Bilderberg Group for that purpose.


The Bilderberg Group would meet to coordinate national policies so that humanity would have the best chance of surviving the challenges posed by visitation of different extraterrestrial factions with unknown agendas.

A vital part of the Bilderberg Group agenda was to ensure that the global media and national legislatures would not learn about the extraterrestrial presence, or of the coordinated national contributions to a globally coordinated Manhattan Project. Funding a Global Manhattan Project, let alone the U.S. element that was at its core would be a monumental task.


The Global Manhattan Project would cost hundreds of billions in the 1950s, and eventually grow to trillions to fund each year.


It would have to be funded in a way that the mass media and national legislatures would not discover what was happening. More importantly, a funding mechanism would need to be found that was reliable and could last for decades if some of the more conventional sources were exposed and/or dried up.

Funding the Global
Manhattan Project entirely through national budgets would not work since the enormous sums required would be too obvious for any scrutinizing expenditures by public institutions. National budgets could only supply a portion of the total funds committed by any nation to the global Manhattan project. [40]


Nor would funding the global Manhattan project entirely from corporations controlled by political and social elites from around the world suffice. Company shareholders would revolt if too much money disappeared for development purposes into unknown corporate programs thereby threatening dividends and stock value.


While extraterrestrial technologies offered fantastic possibilities for future revenue, the market release of these were subject to national security concerns that would override company profit sheets.


Even the largest multinational corporations where in no position to commit billions of dollars for research and development purposes without any timetable for when their investments would see the light of day in a market release.

The most plausible long term funding mechanism would have to be hidden or “black” in the sense that it was not part of the publicly identified revenue belonging to national governments or major multinational corporations. The solution would be to significantly expand the “unofficial” black budget that had been created during the Truman administration by the creation of the CIA.


The CIA is unique among U.S. departments in that it can receive or transmit revenue between U.S. departments without regard to law:

… any other Government agency is authorized to transfer to or receive from the Agency such sums without regard to any provisions of law limiting or prohibiting transfers between appropriations.


Sums transferred to the Agency in accordance with this paragraph may be expended for the purposes and under the authority of sections 403a to 403s of this title without regard to limitations of appropriations from which transferred. [41]

Basically, the 1949 CIA Act gave the CIA the legal cover to launder money through different government departments and agencies.


The CIA immediately began setting up a host of unconventional funding sources for its covert operations.

Over the decades, the CIA’s unofficial black budget would grow spectacularly to where in the years 1998-2000, an average of 1.7 trillion dollars was being funneled into the U.S. Department of Defense for funding the deep black projects set up to deal with extraterrestrial presence.


What follows is a table summarizing the accounting irregularities found in the Dept of Defense which are the tell-tale signs of CIA money laundered through the DoD for deep black projects and covert operations.

1.1 trillion

Office of Inspector General, Audit

“Of the $4.4 trillion in department-level accounting entries, $2.8 trillion were supported with proper research, reconciliation, and audit trails. However, department-level accounting entries of $1.1 trillion were unsupported or improper.” [42]


2.3 trillion

Office of Inspector General, Audit

“… department-level accounting entries of $2.3 trillion were made to force financial data to agree with various sources of financial data without adequate research and reconciliation, were made to force buyer and seller data to agree in preparation for eliminating entries, did not contain adequate documentation and audit trails, or did not follow accounting principles.” [43]


1.7 trillion

Inspector General Statement

 “… final statements were more untimely than ever and a record $1.7 trillion of unsupported adjustments were made in preparing the statements.” [44]



The funding strategies used by the CIA,

  • siphoning off appropriations from different Federal Departments

  • setting up front companies

  • insider trading

  • the illicit drug trade

  • money laundering,

...were not a long term solution for funding the Global Manhattan Project.


If any of these funding methods were publicly exposed or dried up in some way, the Global Manhattan Project could be at risk. Nor were the CIA’s funding methods easily transferable to the intelligence agencies of other nations. So a more long term global funding mechanism was developed at the first ever Bilderberg Group meeting.


This is the Secret Gold Treaty first exposed by David Guyatt in 2000, and linked to the Bilderberg Group’s establishment.

The enormous sums of gold that had been hoarded and moved during the Second World War into different locations in Asia, Switzerland and South America offered an almost unlimited means of international funding for a globally coordinated Manhattan Project.

The Bilderberg Group was the forum whereby the Secret Gold Treaty was negotiated and implemented so that a Global Manhattan Project in response to the extraterrestrial presence could be funded for decades, if not centuries, without the general public learning of its existence.


Guyatt reached a similar conclusion about the purpose of the Gold Treaty negotiated in 1954, most likely at the Bilderberg conference:

In the light of the foregoing, it is hard not to conclude that some form of “secret treaty” may well have been signed in 1954 that involved the recovery of World War II plunder - both European and Asian - and that a portion of it was subsequently used in US military and intelligence "black operations." [45]

Guyatt claims that in 1972, another secret meeting occurred to formalize the 1954 meeting given changes in the international system with the growing international prominence of Asian economies:

The answer to this enigma appears to reside in a secret meeting held in 1972 in which 48 nations (or representatives from 48 nations) participated that formalized an earlier informal agreement (dare I say a "Secret Treaty?") to control and "use" the metal plundered during World War II.


By all accounts, bullion banks, central banks, and also refineries have since joined in this arrangement and have formed an unofficial "club" to police and control the black gold that they henceforward designated as being on "vacation." [46]

Basically, as Guyatt first revealed, the amount of publicly known and tradable gold would be contrived by deflating the amount of historically mined gold to the current estimate of 165 thousand tons.


In reality, the amount of “black gold” greatly exceeded this by as much as a factor of a 100 or even more. Keeping Asia’s and Europe’s “black gold” off the books would offer a cache of gold that could be moved, traded and/or liquidated in ways that would generate enormous sums for different national intelligence agencies.


According to Guyatt:

The amalgamated pool of funds created and now held in dormant and orphaned bank accounts runs to trillions of dollars, according to insiders.


At the low end of estimates, there is believed to be enough to pay off the US national debt plus some change. At the higher end, estimates range up to hundreds of trillions of dollars.


I have been repeatedly told, almost matter-of-factly, that the higher estimates are closer to the truth. I simply don’t know how big the sums amount to, but I can document US$12 trillion. [47]

The CIA and other developed world intelligence agencies would cooperate with the political and economic elites of different nations under the auspices of the Bilderberg Group to ensure these enormous sums were directed into the global Manhattan project.

The trillion dollar lawsuit introduced to the New York District court involves only a small portion of what are large caches of “black gold” hidden in Taiwan, China, Philippines, South America, Switzerland and elsewhere.


Whenever the rightful owners, their descendents or representatives, attempt to redeem the bonds issued against their gold, they get caught up in a complex legal process that often results in charges of financial fraud. This is what has happened with the Chiasso Italy incident which is the core of the New York lawsuit.


David Guyatt described a similar incident that occurred in the 1990s in his ebook, The Secret Gold Treaty.


Ownership of the majority of black gold, however, is unclear due to the twists and turns of history’s wars where national treasures were looted and hidden in secret locations by invading forces.


This historical process has made “black gold” ideal collateral for long-term funding of a secret Global Manhattan Project where bonds can be issued against the hidden gold by major financial institutions. Organizations such as the Bilderberg Group help coordinate international efforts to fund this global project through black gold and other available funding revenues created by the CIA and other intelligence agencies.


The ultimate goal of this globally coordinated Manhattan Project is to comprehensively deal extraterrestrial life and technology, the vastness and complexity of which would otherwise dwarf the resources of any one nation.

Update - 1/18/12

I received the following email by French author Jean-Marie Le Ray after publishing the above study.

"Now, the fact is that bonds seized by the Italian authorities in June 2009 (134.5 billion $) are not the same than bonds claimed by Keenan in his lawsuit (144.5 billion $), with different serial numbers, as I explain here".

Consequently, the financial instruments mentioned in Keenan's lawsuit are different to those seized by the Italian authorities in June 2009. It appears that Dal Bosco gained possession of another set of Dragon Family Financial Instruments (DFFI) in September 2009 to those confiscated at Chiasso.


This supports the claim by Keenan and the Dragon Family that the bonds seized at Chiasso are only a portion of the total amount of bonds held by the Dragon Family.
