B, I touch on a portion of it briefly in the discussion about Bobby Garcia and Ted Lewin. I didn't go into great detail and link the Japanese portion of it through the Sasakawa network but I did touch on some of the far reaching exploits of Lewin and Garcia. I will go back and fill in the blanks from the end of it but if you want to detail the Japanese end of the operation for the other readers it would be greatly appreciated. What I was doing but never completed was show the nature of Garcia's influence and the ties to Lewin which wound back to Los Angeles and murders that began in the mid to late 30s and continued on through the Cohen era in Los Angeles.

I see the Japanese operation as being separate. It seems that the Yamotos enriched themselves with looted gold and other valuables stolen from occupied countries. This gold was supposed to be hiden in various stashes in East Asia.

It`s generally belived that one or several of these stashes were found by Marcos ex-president of The Phillipines.

I saw Sassakawa as being a go-between upperworld vs. the underworld.

The activities of Lewin, Garcia and Sasakawa were linked through the Yotsuya Fund. General Charles Willoughby established this fund and used it to control the Yakuza and their 'wet work' - which was code for extortion, kidnapping, and murder. General Willoughby as the head of the G-2 at SCAP, established Sasakawa's former cellmate at Sugano Prison Yoshio Kodama as the most power yakuza leader. In exchange for financial support, Kodama worked to suppress leftist political activity and public protest during the U.S., military occupation.

Ted Lewin's Mandarin Club, a casino and brothel in Yotsuya was another Willoughby funded operation thru the Cannon Agency. It has been written that Lewin ran Willoughby's dirtiest and wettest operation in Japan. The Cannon Angency named for US Army Colonel Jack Cannon, was a military funded death squad operation.

Jack Cannon operation is indicative of the 1980s training of the right-wing paramilitary groups in South America that we read so much about as the enforcement arm of Cartel leaders or operators of large scale narcotics rings of their own. They were responsible for untold beating and murders of student protest leaders,
liberals, socialists, labor union organizers, and anyone "in general" who got in their way. Cannon's list of minions included Machii Hisayuki, Kodama's Korean lieutenant who headed the
Korean Tosei-kai gang of yakuza. Through these contacts, Jack Cannon performed black ops work "initially for the US Army's Counter-Intelligence Corps," to ferret out and murder dissidents.

Coincidentally "or perhaps not," Ted Lewin and Bobby Garcia both had ties to Los Angeles, the Philippines and the Yotsuya Fund. Lewin was born Theodore Lieweraenowski in New York City in 1907. He was one of five held as suspects in the death of southern California bookie Weldon (Duckie) Irvin in Los Angeles. Lewin was then suspected of having played a role in the organization of a string of bank robberies carried out in the Los Angeles area. One of which targeted the Yokohama Specie Bank '120 S. San Pedro St. The amount taken was relatively small "$8,000" but the relevance of the allegations are key because they link Lewin and Peter Pianezzi a suspect in the gangland murders of George (Les) Bruneman and Phil Gaupalozo, a Los Angeles underworld figure shot 5 times and thrown from a car at 83rd and Main Streets.

It is interesting to note that Lewin was arrested along with Nathan (Nattie) Blanks a man later linked with the Nevada and Texas activities of Bennie Binion, for the Irvin murder. By the time the shooting began and the arrest of Pianezzi and his robbery gang began, Lewin had moved to Manila where he opened a cabaret and promoted wrestling matches. Back in the states little Bobby Garcia partnered with Pete Shinzo in the operation of the Nisei Club at First and Alameda Streets in the Chinatown section. By the time the time the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 8, 1941, Garcia was well established as a wheeler dealer who could secure any luxury item despite the scarcity caused by war.

Lewin and Garcia were both captured and imprisoned by the Japanese on Baatan Island at Bilibid Prison. Both men contented themselves with smuggling black market items and offering games of chance as a distraction for the captured allied soldiers. Lewin was transferred and set up a food delivery business which catered to POWs and enriched the Japanese guards of Cabanatuan prison camp. Garcia was also transferred to Cabanatuan. Following the close of the war both men would earn MacArthur's Medal of Freedom and continue their illicit activities. Lewin opened the Key Club in Manila near Dewey Boulevard before expanding into Tokyo and Guatemala City "Johnny Roselli also had a piece of the action here." While Garcia established Juan Castillo's Club Casanova on Taft Avenue.

Garcia later returned to the U.S., where his exploits have been detailed elsewhere on the site. Lewin was linked through Willouby to the activities of Ferdinand Marcos and Harry Stonehill. Harry Stonehill sold U.S. Army trucks while Ferdinand Marcos sold import permits and fake war service records. Ted Lewin profits were sufficient to finance the opening of the Club Cairo. Lewin was used to funnel money to government figures such as President Magsaysay. He maintained a penthouse suite at the Shellburne Hotel directly across the street from the U.S. Embassy. The suite was wired to record the activities of visiting political figures and used as leverage in maintaining their loyalty or co-operation.

Lewin faded from prominence during the mid-70s and his place of prominence was assumed by Macao gambling magnet Dr. Stanley Ho. So as you can see there are a number of connections between intelligence, military, criminal and political groups and the Sasakawa network. Are these relations ships active today?

GOD DAMN! You really went there! I never really saw connections between Sassakawa and any Americans but I`m assuming they existed after all how could this guy have operated that long.

I saw the Sassakawa operation as a means to launder stolen loot as a means to enlarge Japan`s gold standard .

I knew he existed to "control" Yamaguchi et als. I saw him as a front for The Mitsuis and The Yamatos.

The Stanley Ho connection I never saw or the connection to the Binions. Of course the operation is in place. It looks like its being laundered in Macau.

So this was You and Shakti`s fascination with Stanley Ho.

Do you see a correlation with The Tsutsumis? David Guyatt wrote something on that correlation but later retracted it, when I asked him about what he wrote. Go figure.

If he had the information and knew the facts of what he said why retract it? The connection is there but maybe he couldn't trace its origin. I don't know what it is he wrote but the connection goes back to Yoshiaki Tsutsumi's father Yasujiro who was a friend of Yoshio Kodama. The two conducted business through Toa Sogo Kigyo Co., which was headed by Hisayuki Machii the head of the Tosei-kai. Tsutsumi funneled 1 billion yen loan into a Machii development in Nishigo, Fukushima Prefecture called Asuka Hill in October 1971. The vehicle used was Seibu Real Estate Co., but the deal never panned out and Toa later went bankrupt 6 years later. The loan served to weaken the finances of the Tsutsumi businesses and made them vulnerable to the activities of Hideki Yokoi, a corporate raider. Shortly after Tsutsumi's billion yen loan was extended Yokoi launched a hostile takeover which was stopped after Tsutsumi turned to Kodama who spoke to Yokoi.

The entire affair was probably orchestrated by Kodama seeing that his introduction to young Tsutsumi was made by Kenji Osano the head of Kokusai Kogyo Co and fried of Susumu Ishii the number two man in the Ingawa-kai. Again if you relate the right-wing activities and nationalist origins of the Yakuza groups under Kodama, then you can see how Tsutsumi and his father fit in the picture detailed in the earlier post.

Hey B, I have some more Harry-O stuff for you as well. Despite the granting of his parole in September of 2009, Harris remains at San Quentin where he has been extremely busy on the political front. To be honest I don't think he is going to see daylight before the investigation into the banking activities of Maxine Waters is resolved.

Do you think Hirohito actually headed this operation or was this the brainchild of The Mitsuis or other zaibatsu groups along with military?

Getting back to David Guyatt he wrote something to the effect that the "Pistol Tsutsumi" was involved in the 777 loot raids. When I questioned what he wrote he called them the Tsunamis. I asked Lucy Komisar to take a look at his website but she couldn`t verify anything that he said. Guyatt is located at http://www.deepblacklies.co.uk

Do you see Sassakawa as being a front for Hirohito or doing his own thang in Manchuria. To think that this player had his own private army and control of Peru.

I added the James S. Henry thang yesterday because it touched on the USA`s and the UK`s hypocrisy concerning tax havens, nevermind that New York and London are the two biggest OFC`s on the planet.

It seems like Benny Binion was everywhere. I`ve seen him referred to on your board but never understood his significance.

There is little doubt that the Yakuza was recreated to provide a layer of protection for the Emperor as the Japanese treasury was looted during and after the war. Isn't it interesting that Kodama and the two men who joined him as the most influential Yakuza leaders in post war Japan all served time at Sugamo Prison "as did Lewin and Garcia," and were considered Class A war criminals but after the allied forces arranged their release after securing a promise to aide the fight against Korean forces, the Emperor's attitude toward all three changed. They continued to rob, steal and pillage only at a greater rate than before. So I guess the answer to the question would be they worked for the allied forces and were aides to Hirohito's looting of the Japanese treasury.

It`s interesting that Kodama and Sassakawa did time at all. But at the same place. Hmmmmmmm. I wasn`t aware that Hirohito looted Japan.

Do you see operation as being connected to the Rothschild operation?

I don't know if the Rothschild's were the authors of this or if it was an outgrowth of the shifting financial system or better yet the tactics employed at the time which have become common place today.

It`s funny many have tried to make Hirohito look like a "front" for Japan`s "military / industrial complex"but the reality of it all is that Hirohito was calling the shots all along. He orchestrated Japan`s imperialism and never did any time for his war crimes.

After all only Hirohito had enough clout to order an unconditional surrender. Something I had missed. No question Sassakawa worked for Hirohito.
