Early in 1997 Skolnick Report began investigating a worldwide enterprise which has had a low profile outside of the banking and brokerage industries: PEREGRINE INVESTMENT HOLDINGS LTD. (HEROIN COCAINE transporting and sales, MONEY LAUNDERING funding dirty trics, a REAL DIRTY BUSINESS.) A lot of their business was centered in Chicago, through a commodity brokerage, PEREGRINE FINANCIAL GROUP, INC.
should come as no surprise that financial intermediaries ofvarious
stripes have been linked to or have fronted for the U.S.spy
apparatus, or for foreign versions of the same. In spyjargon,
they are called
For example, there was the infamous NUGAN HAND BANK, operating from
about 1973 to 1980 inAustralia,
California, the Philippines, and London. (ALL THE HEROIN MONEY the CIA
earned in SOU.EA.ASIA during Nam war went into that bank.) Top formermilitary
brass and intelligence officials (of the Vietnam Era,) held key posts in
bank. The general counsel of the bank was WILLIAMCOLBY,
former Director of Central Intelligence. When one of thefounders
of the bank was murdered, Colby’s business card was oneof
the few pieces of evidence left on the body.
successor to Nugan Hand Bank reportedly has been HOUSEHOLDINTERNATIONAL
and HOUSEHOLD BANK, now headquartered in theChicago
suburb of Prospect Heights. Household became part of anespionage-style
mystery since about 1984, when $58.4 million offederal
funds were parked with them to make good the large claimsof
a caulking contractor swindled by various banks and savingsand
loans. The claims of JOSEPH ANDREUCCETTI, still pending atthis
writing, were involved when Household, with the help of bankregulators,
merged with a local savings and loan, AMERICANHERITAGE.
Soon after the funds were parked, officials of the S&Lwere
prosecuted and sent to prison, for various crimes.
1988, $50 million of those escrowed funds disappeared.Thirty-two
purported government bookkeepers could not find them.The
monies were secretly transferred to LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS tomake
good the embezzlement of $47 million from MADISON GUARANTYSAVINGS
& LOAN, for which BILL and HILLARY CLINTON are subject tobeing
prosecuted for federal crimes and sent to prison. BillClinton,
while Arkansas governor, transferred the mysterious $50million
to a known dope money laundry center in the Caribbeanwith
the help of FUJI BANK and, reportedly, HENRY HYDE. In May1996,
CONGRESSMAN DAN BURTON (R., Ind.) gave some details in theCongressional
Record. He promised more details shortlythereafter,
but never filled in the gaps. Was the Congressmanprevented
by reasons of national security?
Said Congressman Dan Burton:ADFA [Arkansas Development Finance Authority] was createdby Governor Clinton in 1985 to provide economic developmentloans in Arkansas. In December of 1988, ADFA deposited $50million in a Japanese bank in the Cayman Islands. I have acopy of the contract that I will enter into the record. Ihave also delivered a copy of this document to theIndependent Counsel’s office. Why should an economicdevelopment agency in Arkansas deposit $50 million in abank in the Cayman Islands? The Cayman Islands are awell-known center of money laundering for drug dealers.The State Department’s international narcotics controlreport described the Caymans as “a haven for moneylaundering.”
Representative Burton went on to say
One of the questions that I think is very, very importantis, Why did the Arkansas Development Finance Authority send$50 million of Arkansas money to deposit in a bank in theCayman Islands, which is a major drug transit pointacknowledged by almost every DEA agent in the world?Congressman Burton further stated:I have the electronic bank transfer statements in myoffice. I am going to put them in the CongressionalRecord. There is no doubt the money was wired to theCayman Islands. The question needs to be asked: Why wasit wired? Why would the governor of Arkansas allow that?
Record, 5/29/96, H5627-28)
Because of apparent blackmail, Congressman Dan Burton was stoppedfrom putting the documents into the Congressional Record. Or wasit because of national security tied in some way to BillClinton’s role, from an early age, with the American CIA?  
HYDE has had several hats. For many years, he has been aCongressman
from the Chicago area. Hyde for a while he was adirector
of Chicago suburban CLYDE SAVINGS & LOAN ASSOCIATION, apurported
CIA proprietary. When the federal S&L bailout agency,Resolution
Trust Corporation (RTC), sued Hyde, as an S&L directoraccused
of misconduct, a CIA attorney was brought into thefederal
district court case, and the case thereafter was nolonger
in open court and the records ordered kept secret.
has also been the head of the CIA’s “black budget,” fundingcovert
operations, domestic and foreign, including overthrowinggovernments
and political assassinations. In this regard, Hydeviolates
the U.S. Constitution’s mandate of Separation of Powers:Hyde
is in the forbidden role of sitting in the legislative andexecutive
branches of government at the same time. HE IS SO DIRTY!
comparison of the different versions of CIA money laundries isinstructive.
NUGAN HAND BANK transferred, in a clandestinemanner,
huge amounts from military and espionage agent gamblingpools.
Also laundered were the proceeds from the officialcorruption
involved in stealing U.S. military equipment from VietNam
during that war, and marketing the stolen items to dictatorsand
mercenary armies worldwide. Nugan Hand handled CIA funds forthe
National Security Agency’s (NSA) secret missile and satellitetracking
stations in Australia, such as at ALICE SPRINGS. NuganHand
took sizeable deposits from U.S. engineers and othersworking
in the Persian Gulf oil fields; funds handled to escapevarious
prying eyes such as tax collectors. Nugan Hand alsolaundered
Golden Triangle dope funds. (Some details are in thebook,
The Crimes of Patriots, by Jonathan Kwitny.)
reportedly continued as a money laundry in similartransactions.
Their facilities in the southern states reportedlylaundered
clandestine funds—from CIA covert operations, dopeloot,
and such—disguised as mortgage servicing transfers. Aportion
of the funds that disappeared under Henry Hyde’s watch asCLYDE
SAVINGS S&L director went through Arkansas and through aLittle
Rock-based purported commodity broker. What was a Chicagosuburban
S&L—Henry Hyde’s place—doing sending a lot oftheir
federally-insured depositors’ funds to ARKANSAS??
be noted is that BILL and HILLARY needed 47 million of the 50million
dollar secret transfer to cover up their apparentembezzlement.
What happened to the $3 million difference?Around
November 1991, CLINTON started his campaign for President.Raising
funds by arm-twisting (some say corruption and extortion)was
RAHM EMANUEL, an expert at such things. The Chicago Tribune,in
their Sunday Magazine cover story about Rahm Emanuel, said:“Between
the time he came on board in November 1991 to thefirst
of the year, SOMEHOW $3 MILLION WAS RAISED,” saysDavid
Wilhelm of Chicago, the campaign director at the timeand
former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.”It
was enough to catapult him [Clinton] into front-runnerstatus.”

as a bargaining vehicle. Is the following a mere coincidence?When PRINCE CHARLES was to divorce PRINCESS DIANA, he did notwant to sell off his royal properties for Diana’s marriagedissolution pay-off. So what did he do? He received an alleged”loan” of $50 MILLION FROM HOUSEHOLD BANK, LONDON.

to get a ROC*FELLER enterprise, FIRST CHICAGO NBDCORPORATION,

out Peregrine, mired in a supposed problem. The mainstreampress
(we call them the press-fakers) contend Peregrine loaned$275
million to the STEADY-SAFE TAXI COMPANY in Indonesia, whichcannot
or will not pay it back. Knowledgeable sources contendthat
the amount is actually $300 million, and that embedded inthe
strange deal is the selfsame mysterious $50 million—originally intended
to make good the claims of JOSEPH ANDREUCCETTI, then apparently used to
cover-up the embezzlementof

reported in the Chicago Tribune, January 10, 1998, about theSTEADY-SAFE
TAXI deal, “Peregrine’s shares plunged 20 percentthis
week, and the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commissionsuspended
its stock exchange membership after word spread thatthe
firm is owed about $275 million by a taxi company inIndonesia.”
thereafter, at a U.S. press conference, Peregrineannounced
they are petitioning for Bankruptcy Court protectionagainst
creditors. Some observers—are they serious? --insist
that investigations by myself and the CITIZENS’ COMMITTEETO
CLEAN UP THE COURTS of Peregrine over the previous year, andof
their reputed links to CIA, caused CIA to abandon Peregrine.Some
even insist that =we= instigated the Chicago Tribune story.As
we of the CITIZENS’ COMMITTEE TO CLEAN UP THE COURTS have toldyou
in exclusive stories: five federal judges in Chicago werebribed
some $62 million to cover up federal litigation involvingCLINTON
dope loot disguised as soybean deals on the CHICAGO BOARDOF
TRADE. Involved were hundreds of millions of dollars ofsupposed
soybean deals, actually funds for Clinton’s twopresidential
campaigns. The press-fakers are not telling us howChinese
and ethnic Chinese have obtained an armlock on themarkets
in Chicago—Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago MercantileExchange,
and the Chicago Board Options Exchange—for theapparent
purpose of laundering huge sums of bribery, extortion,and
bloody dirty-tricks funds, used by the circle of high-levelthieves
that installed Clinton—their puppet—as President.Involved

is no secret that PEREGRINE, by various devious means,reportedly
tried to stop the investigation by the CITIZENS’COMMITTEE
TO CLEAN UP THE COURTS into reports that indicated thatPeregrine
=was= and =is= a CIA proprietary. (By the way,according
to Justice Department records released to us underFreedom
of Information, the CIA’s past expert on theirproprietaries
and how to fold them up and make them disappear aspurported
bankruptcies has been William A. Brandt, Jr., now analleged
U.S. Bankruptcy Court Trustee in Chicago. He apparently
still specializes in the same thing! Will Peregrine’s problemsland in the highly corrupt Chicago courts?)
-+- Fall-Out From The Peregrine Collapse -+-
are reasons to believe PEREGRINE is another successor, likeHOUSEHOLD,
to the NUGAN HAND BANK. There has been plenty of
fall-out:1) A Swiss group linked in some way to Peregrine. Was VinceFoster’s death (some say it was murder) linked to that? He often
travelled on clandestine missions for NSA to Switzerland.2) Caught up in the middle of the dope/soybean mess in Chicagowas the VATICAN-owned soybean octopus, FERRUZZI. The Clintons,on one side of the federal court litigation, squeezed Ferruzziinto bankruptcy, to the ultimate benefit of the Clintons,ARCHER-DANIELS-MIDLAND, and CARGILL. The head of Ferruzzi, RAULGARDINI, was murdered about the same time as Vince Foster’smysterious death.
Acting more or less as the general counsel of Household wasWILLIAM
COLBY, who held that same role with Nugan Hand. His friends say Colby was
murdered in 1996, disguised as a boating accident.
Several commodity brokers, transacting through the Chicago Board of Trade
and other markets, and knowing too much about Peregrine, are being
targeted, in apparent frame-ups, to silencethem.
To cover up what the Peregrine Affair is really all about, theClinton
Justice Department is planning to prosecute, on federal criminal offenses,
various commodity and other brokers.
Some of the brokers accused, or facing accusations, wereactuallylured
into alleged business dealings with Peregrine.
According to some reporters, President Clinton began actingstrange;u
and babbling like he did not know what he was saying.
 Was he going to be assassinated? Would he never live tobecome an ex-President? Clinton’s press secretary said it didnot amount to anything, that Clinton was just tired. Thishappened at about the time the Peregrine Affair started quakingworldwide.
8) If the Justice Department were honest, which it is not, theywould soon start the prosecution of Bill and Hillary Clinton fortheir role in massive money laundering and other federal criminaloffenses, involving Peregrine and Lippo and the Clintons.
9) Highly corrupt, top-level U.S. Treasury officials arereportedly implicated in the criminality involving Peregrine --including high-level state and federal revenue officials, some inthe Chicago area.
Top officials of the Chicago markets reportedly permitted andcondoned
the dirty dealings on the Chicago markets by Peregrine
and various brokers linked one way or another with Peregrine.
Some estimate Peregrine as a $70 to $80 BILLION ship. Howdid
a $300 million purported loan loss—the alleged STEADY-SAFE
TAXI deal—sink that large of a ship?
