The Get Out of Jail Free Card: Manuel Noriega, Michael Milken

Please note, in the text that follows there will be references to spook numbers contained in Wikipedia, a way of messaging one another that we outsiders are not supposed to understand. The numbers they use have significance to them, and are often expressed in many ways. “33”, for instance, a widely used one, can be expressed as 3+3, or 6, 3*3, or 9, or 3^3, 27. Other numbers that seem to recur are 8, 22, 11, 47 (perhaps just another way to say 11), 77 (always watch out for terrorist events on July 7), and 555. In reading over the Wikipedia pages regarding Noriega and Milken, these numbers appeared frequently and out of sequence.

NoriegaManuel Noriega

The life and times of Manuel Noriega does not read right. We are told that he worked closely with the CIA from the 1950s up until the US invasion of Panama in 1989. We are told that he ran cocaine during this time, and that the CIA was aware of it, but found him otherwise useful and so overlooked his activities. Here’s Wikipedia:

The 1988 Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Narcotics and International Operations concluded: “The saga of Panama’s General Manuel Antonio Noriega represents one of the most serious foreign policy failures for the United States. Throughout the 1970s and the 1980s, Noriega was able to manipulate U.S. policy toward his country, while skillfully accumulating near-absolute power in Panama. It is clear that each U.S. government agency which had a relationship with Noriega turned a blind eye to his corruption and drug dealing, even as he was emerging as a key player on behalf of the Medellín Cartel (a member of which was notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar).” Noriega was allowed to establish “the hemisphere’s first ‘narcokleptocracy‘”.[14] One of the large financial institutions that he was able to use to launder money was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.

What’s wrong? The drug trade is under control of CIA, and has been for decades. Why else did the US invade Vietnam and Afghanistan if not to control first the Golden Triangle, and now the poppy fields of the Golden Crescent? It is an ongoing source of humor that the US, having occupied Afghanistan, has no control over the place, and that no US soldier has ever seen one poppy harvested and sent off for processing. It must all happen at night.

So the idea that Noriega was running a rogue operation is ludicrous. The idea that he had gone rogue is equally so, as he just did not have that kind of power in a country occupied by the United States military. He was a subordinate. (The 1977 Panama Canal Treaty gave the U.S. free access to Panama, troops there of course said to be defending the country.)

I don’t know why the U.S. invaded Panama in 1989. I know it was not for stated reasons, as we are never told the truth about these things. I don’t know how much death and destruction resulted. I know about a supposed mass grave after a barrio was flattened by a Stealth bomber, but honestly, in time of war, nothing is to be believed. Nothing. It’s not unheard of to spread rumors like that just to intimidate potential future enemies.

My only question here is if Noriega, arrested and brought back to Miami for trial, ever spent a day in jail. If he was a CIA asset all those years, he served well, so most likely he was brought back to serve as a scapegoat, possibly to convince the people of Panama that they had their own government back.

Here are some clues in support of his jail sentence being fake from Wikipedia:

  • Noriega was tried and convicted on eight counts of drug trafficking, racketeering, and money laundering. Never seven or nine, and perhaps they could not drum up 11 or 33 counts. Eight.
  • He was convicted in spite of the fact that all exculpating evidence in his favor was denied to the court. A district court ruled that “the introduction of evidence about Noriega’s role in the CIA would “confuse the jury”.[44]
  • Even though the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit found that the district court had overstated its case in not allowing Noriega to present evidence, it let everything stand. Ruled the 11th, “the potential probative value of this material, however, was relatively marginal”.[44]
  • Noriega, while held in Florida, had the Federal Bureau of Prisons ID number 38699-079.[47] For those not paying attention, that’s 11, 3+3, 3*3,3*3, and a 3*3 at the end with a “47” footnote tossed in. Does the BOP ever give out non-suspicious numbers?
  • Wiki tells us that Noriega had his own prison cell, furnished with electronics and exercise equipment. This sounds like misdirection, as the question is thereby avoided, was he ever even in jail?

After being released by US authorities in on September 9, 2007 (3 nines by the way), Noriega was extradited to France. “On July 7, 2010, Noriega was convicted by the 11th chamber of the Tribunal Correctionnel de Paris and sentenced to seven years in jail.” Seven years in jail on 7/7.

Noriega, as this circus continued, was then shipped to Panama, still under U.S. control (that did not change before, during or after the 1989 invasion), and France shipped him there on October 1, 2011.[62] As I read that it is 10012011= or 6, or 3+3, or is that a reach?

He was extradited on December 11 and incarcerated at El Renacer prison to serve time for crimes committed during his rule. On February 5, 2012, Noriega was moved from the El Renacer prison to the Hospital Santo Tomas because of high blood pressure and a brain hemorrhage. He remained in the hospital for four days before being returned to prison.[63] In January 2017 he was released from prison and placed under house arrest to prepare for surgery that would remove a benign tumor that was first discovered in 2011. During the surgery in March 2017, he suffered a brain hemorrhage which left him in critical condition in the intensive care unit of Santo Tomas hospital in Panama City.[64][65]

I could very easily read that to mean that Noriega was allowed to return to his home country of Panama for retirement, where he possibly had been the entire time after his fake arrest in 1989 and incarceration in 1992. Some of these psyops go on for years, part of what they call in the movies “continuity.”


Michael Milken

MilkenPart of our public ritual during routine stock market crashes is crucifixion followed by redemption. During the 1980s the US experienced a run-up in stock prices along with other phenomena such as a “junk bond” feeding frenzy and leveraged buyouts, two expressions used to hide the manipulations of money based on no underlying value, the new American economy of the Reagan era. When it all crashed, as it had to, on Black Monday, October 19, 1987, the financial world was in shock. [10/19 = 9/11 backwards.)

There are those who say these crashes are timed, that insiders know about them in advance, and that they are just routine theft. I certainly don’t know that to be true or false, but do see that with each disaster we are offered up a scapegoat. This is done to give us the satisfaction that rich people suffer too, are punished for being dishonest, and pay a price to society for their bad behavior. With the most recent crash, 2007/8, it was Bernie Madoff.

Two scapegoats offered up after the ’87 crash were Ivan Boesky and Michael Milkin. Both were punished by being banned from the financial markets. Both, supposedly, served time in jail and reformed.

The “banning,” though symbolic, may be real as it is meant to convey the impression that markets are honest and that the bad apples can’t play. Along with this is goes another loony tune idea, that the Securities and Exchange commission rides roughshod over the market and punishes bad actors. Both illusions are essential to propping up this corrupt system.

My only objective here is to ascertain whether Milken in particular ever served a day in jail. All of the signals and clues in Wikipedia, the official source of lies of our times, say no. The two footnotes that appear throughout his page are “9” and “18,” another form of “9”, or “3*3”, the standard signal that appears everywhere when lies are being spun. The signal is saying that the event being described is fake, did not happen.

Here are some samples from Milken’s page:

Dan Stone, a former Drexel executive, wrote in his book April Fools that Milken was under nearly constant scrutiny from the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1979 onward due to unethical and sometimes illegal behavior in the high-yield department.[18] His own role in such behavior has been much debated. Stone claims that Milken viewed the securities laws, rules and regulations with a degree of contempt, feeling they hindered the free flow of trade. However, Stone said that while Milken condoned questionable and illegal acts by his colleagues, Milken himself personally followed the rules.[18] He often called Drexel’s president and CEO, Fred Joseph—known for his strict view of the securities laws—with ethical questions.[9]

How to read that? Milken was under no SEC scrutiny. Milken did not personally follow the rules. Fred Joseph had no scruples either.

The SEC inquiries never got beyond the investigation phase until 1986, when arbitrageur Ivan Boesky pleaded guilty to securities fraud as part of a larger insider trading investigation. As part of his plea, Boesky implicated Milken in several illegal transactions, including insider trading, stock manipulation, fraud and stock parking (buying stocks for the benefit of another). This led to an SEC probe of Drexel, as well as a separate criminal probe by Rudy Giuliani, then United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Although both investigations were almost entirely focused on Milken’s department, Milken refused to talk with Drexel (which launched its own internal investigation) except through his lawyers.[9][18]

The arrival of Rudy Giuliani, by reputation a ferocious prosecutor, signals more hanky-panky.  Just as he was placed in New York City on 9/11 (note the numbers), he too was used in several other public hoaxes, and the Milken affair fits his profile. I read the above paragraph to mean that Drexel was  apprised of what was about to go down and told to prepare for a public crucifixion, but otherwise not to worry.

Milken was indicted on 98 counts (note the 9 and the 8), one of which was that Milken paid Drexel $5.3 million (=8) of his share of profits from illegal trading. Then comes this:

Milken resigned from Drexel and formed his own firm, International Capital Access Group.[9][18]

I cannot help but notice the presence of CIA in that name (as with Dave McGowan’s Center for an Informed America). It could be coincidence. The company did indeed really exist at one time, if LA Times is to be believed.  But it could as easily have been but a storefront to house Milken until his symbolic banishment.

The two footnotes, “9” and “18”, refer to real sources, by the way, in this case two books written about the scandal. However, they could as easily be footnotes 4 and 16 rather than 9 and 18. That is the nature of Wiki signalling, not that there is no substance behind the numbers, but that the numbers are chosen for a reason, and are usually out of sequence and repeated.

On April 24, 1990, Milken pleaded guilty to six counts of securities and tax violations.[8]

Six is 3+3, and the number 8 by itself is a signal. I read it to mean farce, nothing happened, it was all done on paper and in the media. Here’s one more:

In total this means that he paid $1.1 billion for all lawsuits related to his actions while working at Drexel.

Notice the 11?

The rest of the Wikipedia article on Milken is about his reformation and life of charitable deeds, the necessary redemption after crucifixion. It may be real for all I know, as signalling in the footnotes stops. Or it could all be a crock of shit. Wiki does not address the jail sentence – I had to look elsewhere. The New York Times tells us that his sentence was reduce from 10 years to 24 months.

The Times also tells us that Milken was incarcerated at Federal Correctional Institution in Pleasanton, California, a minimum security facility (“white collar”) also said to have housed Sara Jane Moore, who allegedly fired a shot at President Gerald Ford, and Patty Hearst, who participated in the Symbionese Liberation Army psyop of the 1970s.

Says the Times:

He will gradually be allowed weekend visits to his home before then, Federal prison officials said, if he is put in the work-release program. He could be eligible for that program next month, they said.

I take that to mean the following: If you see Milken wandering about, that’s why. He’s in jail, but then he’s not, really.

There was tremendous concern about fairness, about the undue harshness of Milken’s treatment at the hands of the court, the need for reduced sentencing, the white collar prison he supposedly entered, the kind of thing that never goes on when courts are dealing with poor black kids caught stealing from a 7/11 or holding pot. They need to feel the full force of the justice system to be taught a lesson.

My assertion: Milken’s persecution and prosecution was symbolic, a sham. He was used in a public crucifixion and redemption play. He never served a day in prison.

I was surprised as well in this research to learn that Patty Hearst and Sara Jane Moore also walked free. But not really. I just hadn’t thought about it. Of course they did. That’s fodder for future Get Out of Jail Free Card posts.

    Major League Baseball embraced Milken when he was on his redemption tour. Milken was pushing the prostate/ass cancer scam big time on the Game of the Week, insisting ALL men over 50 get scoped. Dovetailing with the post on healthcare, my father had VA coverage and he fell for the ass cancer scare, having his prostate gland removed at age 74. Ironically, since he was a wounded vet from the Korean conflict, it was a Korean doctor who pulled his plug. Later on, a different VA doctor examined Pop and asked him why he had the procedure. Well, Pop being a Marine, he followed the herd. The doctor told him that if he lived to be 95, then there would cause for concern, but he should not have had his prostate gland removed. (A rare spasm of candor from a licensed MD)
    I am the type that refuses to take even aspirin, let alone have a camera shoved up my wazoo, so I was never tempted, but isn’t it strange that, like serial killers, this particular “disease” has virtually vanished from the news…

    • I have a sneaking suspicion my older brother died of doctors disease … that is, his PSA was elevated, so they talked him into prostate surgery, far more invasive than he realized. Within two years he was diagnosed with a rare intestinal cancer that was too far removed from his orifices to treat. I asked him gently one time if he felt the two were connected and he angrily said no and so I did STFU permanently, but that angry burst from a kind and patient man told me he too was suspicious. Standard treatment for prostate cancer now … observe it.

      I take some supplements but no aspirin (John Hamer claims in his book Falsification of History that most of the deaths from the influenza outbreak of 1918 were caused by over-prescription of the new miracle drug of the day … aspirin. That one has to sit for a while, as I’ve not seen or heard another soul say as much.

    Seems to be the thing that someone else called “the worst religion of all” – the belief in authorities.
    If I visit a doctor, it is only to get a sick note, but never to get his lethal help. But in general, I made the same experiences – you can’t convince any one asleep to belief in himself, consider all information about the corrupt establishment, and to act on one’s own responsibilities. Most will fall back on their indoctrinated behavior, and follow the herd – even into death.
    I had similar cases in my family and environment, and it makes me sick thinking about it…
