Connect the dots if you will. Should NBA security should be concerned about extortion and money laundering?

Hehehehehe! Is this a Micheal Franzese thang? But with that much available in the NBA, sure they should be concerned!

It`s funny how big the NBA has gotten in the last 30 years.

So why do all these people think Rabbi Pinto has any real estate or business sense including Lebron James? This is getting very good.

It took awhile for me to figure this out. The "Rabbi" is a front for Mossad and the Israeli government. He has the same role that Arnon Milchan has.

It`s sooooo funny that the wealthy have been doing financial crimes for years they`re light years beyond the gangsters. I really would like to write a book about this subject.

In a lot of feudal societies merchants were not well liked. The merchants had money power to back them, something that the nobility didn`t really understand.
The nobility`s power was based on land and arms.

Well one of Obstfeld's close friends was Martin Schlaff and Schlaff has been linked in a published report as having played a role in the disappearance of public funds and the privatization of assets in former East Germany. It was said that officials in East Germany transferred tens of millions of marks to Schlaff through accounts in Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, in return for goods “under Western embargo.”

It was also said that Schlaff received a transfer of 170 million deutsche marks to the Schlaff group, for a shipment of hard disks from Herbert Kohler, who once served as the head of the information and technology department of the General Intelligence Administration in Dresden. Schlaff's name was also mentioned in an attempt to bride Ariel Sharon in 2002 in an effort to open a casino near Eilat. So was he killed to cover something up? Possibly. Who can say for certain what is truly behind all of this? I most certainly can't!

As for Arabov, there isn't a doubt in my mind that the BMF case was a cover for a very sophisticated operation that involves not only illicit diamond transactions but the laundering of funds via record companies. It doesn't take much to trace the connections which link not only the BMF operation but other ventures such as Bad Boy, Death Row and Rap-A-Lot to Arabov's venture. The Flenory's were idiots who were propped up as the latest "big time inner-city dope dealers" to be taken down. My question is what happened to all of the money they allegedly generated? It is also interesting to note Arabov was allowed to travel internationally while awaiting his sentencing.

Why who can say but it doesn't take a genius to see the Flenory's weren't in control of that organization.

Now your opening a bigger can of worms! First of all it looks like The Rabbi is playing banker.

If the Flenory`s were just fronts (which I kinda suspected) who was really running that operation (in your opinion).

Arabo interests me, it was interesting to see this jeweler laundering for another record company. He obviously runs in the right company.

What do you think the various magazines claiming Israel is going to attack Iran nevermind a much better organized Hezbollah army is sitting in Lebanon?

You mean Rabbi Pinto acting as a banker? Well some have said that he runs an organized crime ring himself. I don't know? What I do know is that he and Obtsfeld had conducted business together and that Obtsfeld had done business with an assortment of people involved in gambling, money laundering and insurance fraud. One of those he was linked with was Shalom Weiss another Rabbi who was convicted of defrauding the National Heritage Life Insurance Co. That deal you can trace back to Las Vegas and Death Row Records. New York attorney Michael Blutrich was involved in Death Row and the Weiss scandal. Pasted below is an excerpt from an article I wrote called the Men Behind Death Row, which explains in part Blutrich's role in the insurance scandal and Death Row.


Quote:


CLUB 662

On the fateful night of September 7, 1996 Tupac joined the Death row entourage as it belatedly made its way to a charity event benefitting Barry’s Boxing Gym at Club 662. Club 662 is a Vegas establishment with a long and sorted history. Originally the building housed Don Jose’s Mexican Restaurant but in the early 80s it began its run as a popular nightclub.

Despite its popularity, the building housed a series of adult themed businesses opening first under the name Botany’s nightclub followed in rapid succession by club Metropolis, Babe’s topless bar and culminating in 1994 with the opening of Club 662.
Neither the club, nor the property on which it sat was owned by Knight as is often reported but by a New York City duo with ties to New York’s Gambino crime family.

Knight “despite his best efforts,” failed at every turn to secure a portion of the club’s ownership. All he could manage through the connections of Attorney Kelesis was an occasional renting of the building through Helen Thomas, the President of Platinum Road Inc. Thomas “the widow of Carl Thomas, a notorious Las Vegas underworld figure convicted in the late 70s of skimming $280,000 from the Tropicana casino,” held a long-term lease agreement that gave her control of the club, a function carried out in truth by Attorney Kelesis. The Thomas’s involvement in the property dated back to the launching of Botany’s, which was financed through a loan from Carl Thomas.

Knight was never allowed to deal directly with Thomas; Attorney Kelesis handled all business transaction between the two. As it were on the night in question, Knight dragged Shakur to the charity event on the suggestion of Kelesis who “asked Knight…to pass on word of the party to his celebrity friends to ensure a successful event.” An estimated 500 guests attended the event including boxers Mike Tyson and Tommy Hearns. Suge and Tupac obviously weren’t among the revelers.

Mike Tyson and Tupac Shakur with agent Frank Alexander hovering in the background.

SUGE’S BIG PAYOUTS

The owners of record for club 662 were Michael Blutrich and Lyle Pfeffer. These two are key in understanding the network that operated in the shadows of Death Row and Suge Knight. Despite generating $300 million in sales, Death Row never turned a profit. Debt and unexplained expenditures such as payments Knight reportedly made regularly to people with organized crime times, saddled the company.

Some reports place the total amount of these payments in the months leading up to Shakur’s death in the neighborhood of $800,000. There have been several explanations given for these payments the most consistently circulated being, attempts by Knight to buy a stake in the club property or renovation expenses and “payments made in an attempt to secure a management team to operate the club with the ability to secure a liquor license.”


No matter how you slice it, the money funneled from Death Row’s accounts undoubtedly went to the syndicate.

MICHAEL BLUTICH AND LYLE PFEFFER

One was a founding partner in a politically prominent New York law firm, the other a venture capitalist. Both were money-eyed hustlers with a larcenous bend. Together they entered into partnerships with a score of underworld figures. Called “typical swindlers” by some, the pair’s business deals prove they were anything but.

Michael D. Blutrich “the attorney” and Lyle K. Pfeffer “the capitalist” earned more than $500,000 annually through legitimate business dealings, however an insatiable desire to attain more led them to work with members of John Gotti’s Gambino group in a million dollar extortion scheme.
One of the most unique attributes the pair exhibited was an uncanny ability to form partnerships with people from varying backgrounds. This feature served them very well. While operating a Manhattan strip club called Scores, they openly courted and accepted as business partner’s crime associates of John Gotti Jr.

Blutrich was a founding partner in a New York City law firm that included several aides to Gov. Mario Cuomo. The firm “Blutrich, Falcone & Miller” later added Cuomo’s son Andrew to its partnership roster. Blutrich also figure prominently in entertainment circles buying and or investing in restaurants and nightclubs in New Rochelle, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. He also occasionally dabbled in the promotion of boxing matches.

A move into the insurance business led to a legal entanglement that was indicative of Blutrich’s philosophy, it also provides the blueprint that exposed the connections between the manipulators of Marion Knight, organized crime and Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

3 Orlando businessmen in an attempt to gain control of National Heritage Insurance “a company dealing primarily in annuities,” approached Blutrich for help with arranging financing for the deal. Blutrich proceeded to help them by setting up a bank account from which he provided a hot check in the amount of $4 million. With the acquisition secured, the fraud began. Blutrich’s $4 million rescue required the buyers to dip into the company’s resources to cover the $3 million dollar deficit in Blutrich’s account. Blutrich soon thereafter began to appoint the companies leading figures. In so doing they gratefully granted him a $300,000 loan that served as seed money to open Scores. The company’s chief executive officer David L. Davies, “invested another $700,000 of his personal funds as a secret but principal partner” in the club.

RICHARD B. HERMAN

Nearly all of the biographical information available on Suge Knight details his stint as a non-descript lineman on the UNLV football team. None of this information is relevant in the Death Row story, however Knight’s connections to New York Attorney Richard Herman are pivotal.

Herman was the “first individual” with whom Knight conducted business with in Las Vegas. Herman also represented Scores. According to Knight, his dealings with Club 662 began after a consultation with his “accountant and lawyers…”

The accountant in question is the notorious Steven Cantrock formerly of Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman a subsidiary of Coopers & Lybrand. The attorney’s undoubtedly were Robert Amira, a Las Vegas entrepreneur of whom I will speak more on later,” and Herman. Knight’s Las Vegas dealings began after Cantrock introduced him to Herman. Through Herman, Suge began staging parties featuring Death Row artists as entertainment and soon thereafter the marquee was changed to read Club 662. This change led many to believe Knight was the owner of the club and foster the allusion that he was an innovative entrepreneur. Those allusions were part of the reason Shakur had agreed to sign with the label to begin with.

In reality, Richard Herman was the architect of the dealings that opened the pipeline from Death Row into Club 662. One key fact that has escaped every other Death Row narrative is the involvement of Herman in Blutrich’s National Heritage Insurance scam. In addition to being the legal representative of Scores, Herman “also a former law partner of Blutrich,” was one of those indicted in the Insurance scam. Herman though indicted twice was never brought to trial.

The success of Knight early on in Las Vegas was due to his relationship with Herman. The formula worked very well until the National Insurance indictment forced Herman out of the picture. It was at this time that Cantrock introduced Knight to Houston attorney Robert Amira. Amira would pick up as Suge’s lodestar but Herman remained intimately connected to all parties concerned.

This sounds like the "other side of the coin" of the stuff we got into a discussion about concerning Harry-O and Suge Knight. Where does Harry-O fit in here?

It looks like The Rabbi is playing banker / facillitator. I can`t think of any other reason other unless he`s running the whole show that many people are trying to get his attention. How in the hell does a rabbi become that influential?

The Rabbi is a go-between or facilitator. In several of the articles I`ve read about the Rabbi this go-between role popped up several times. The Rabbi is extremely well-known and knows the "right" people a la Adnan Khasshoggi. Didn`t AK consult with a "Holy Man" as well?

Yes AK did have a spiritual adviser. As for where Harry-O fits into this equation. Currently he has no tie to the current dealings you are seeing playing out here but there is a historic tie to Blutrich & Pfeffer, Cantrock, Hermann and all of those mentioned in the Behind Death Row piece. I'll have to relink that article but basically Harris invested in Death Row which called upon his experience dealing with James Nederlander in the entertainment business. Harris also had political ties to former Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, street ties to the Neighborhood Rollin 30s and Rollin 60s Crips. This seems insignificant until you consider the fact that Harlem or Rollin 30s is the neighborhood which produced Tracy "Ice-T" Morrow and more recently indicted San Bernardino native and independent record producer and rap artist Michael "Kay9nine" Denmon. Inmate/Author Colton "Lil Cee Loc2" Simpson is also a member of the gang who not only found employment through Ice-T but was convicted of heading a robbery gang which operated in Riverside county not far from the Indio headquarters of the alleged Demon operation.

The Rollin 60s were a prominent tie due to the connection of Brian "Bo" Bennet and his brothers Tony and Daron to that gang. The Bennet's worked closely with Harris and his brothers Dominique and David in a nationwide narcotics ring with ties to Texas, Louisiana, Michigan and other states. In terms of money laundering Keith T. Parker aka Keitarock played a prominent role at Deathrow Records during the years Knight served his prison sentence. Parker was later convicted and sentenced to prison for a drug related murder but was apparently replaced in the entertainment/laundering scheme by Eugene "Big U" Henley aka Hannibal Muhammad. Henley was sentenced to a long prison term in the '80s for attempting to rob an undercover LAPD officer. Since his release he has served as a community anti-gang organizer and consultant on several entertainment projects in conjunction with Ving Rhames and a rapper known as Nipsey Hustle.

Again it would be best if I relink the article which details all of these ties and so much more.
