KinderMorgan Inc., (KMI) returned to the market in the largest IPO offering since 1998. KMI's 95.5 million shares priced at $30 brought $2.86 billion in proceeds that is slated to payoff some of the companies maturing finance agreements. As KinderMorgan listing means a $13.5 billion payday for the companies majority owners which include a list of heavy hitting private-equity firms such as the Carlyle Group, Goldman Sachs, Highstar Capital and Riverstone Holdings LLC. Also sharing in the windfall are Barclays Capital, BofA, Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, J. P. Morgan, Wells Fargo, Madison Williams and Company, Morgan Keegan, Raymond James, RBC Capital Markets and Simmons & Co. A name you won't find listed in the trade papers who is undoubtably enjoying the successful return of KinderMorgan Inc., (KMI) is legendary Houston investor Fayez Sarofim. A virtual unknown to most, Sarofim is one of the most successful private investors of this era. On the scene since the early '50s when his father-in-law George R. Brown "one of the founders of Brown & Root," pegged him to oversee Rice University's endowment. It was Sarofim who handled the investments of the old 8-F crowd, the Brown Foundation and virtually every one of Houston's old money crowd. As I said Sarofim performed fantastically while men like Walter Mischer drew headlines. When Ken Lay and Enron were generated record profits, Sarofim warned Houston's major money holders to avoid the crooked E. When Richard Kinder spun off KinderMorgan Inc., from a cast off collection of Enron pipeline assets, Sarofim organized the financing and signaled the all clear in terms of major private investors.


And so it came as no surprise to find that Sarofim held a total of 31,178,252 KMI shares which carried a value at $30 per share of $935,347,560. These shares are held through a number of enterprises that include Sarofim Special Investments, west Clay Investment Partnership No. 8 (Energy Investments) L.P., and Sarofim International Management Co. That initial investment will top the billion dollar mark as soon as the share price reaches 32.07. That is expected to occur sometime this morning as the opening price was listed at $31.94.

It looks like 'The Spinx" has had an interesting life. Do you see a conflict of interest here? So what was it he saw in Enron early that led him to believe that Enron was cooking it`s books? Or do you think he said, Enron was faulty in order to get his hands on some of it`s assets?

Sarofim didn't do anything illegal or untoward as it relates to Enron he simply pointed out early that there were some "innovative minds" at work in that operation. I am sure Fayez had intimate knowledge of what was going on there through the architect whom he financed in starting KinderMorgan. There Is also a link to Brown & Root as it relates to some of the physical assets owned by both Enron & KinderMorgan.

You use the word "architect" loosely. That`s exactly how I see these types of people that create these corporate mazes. How familar are you with Tony Grant (Hyman Clebanoff), also spelled Klebanov.

http://www.bunker8.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/orgcrim/potter.htm

books.google.com/books?isbn=0306431351.......

This guy "Grant" has a similar characteristics that you ascribe to the other "conspirators" on "Team Rothschild". I`ve noticed this person for quite sometime (like six years) but couldn`t really find enough info. about him. He seems to be a criminal financier.

I`ve asked Potter about him but couldn`t really get any real info. on Grant from Potter. I`ve asked the same questions to Mike Levi as well as the people at Nathanson Center.......nothing. I think this guy fits your profile.

You aren't going to find much on him because he enjoys the same protection as Terry Adams. You understand what I mean?

"Grant " fascinates me he seems to be one the players I`ve studied who have "street smarts" as well as sharp financial skills a la Raition (the Philadelphia Associate of the Bruno Family) Those people who have the ability to hide behind corporate mazes. It`s funny I never met those types of people on the streets although they`ve existed.

Tony Grant, Terry Adams and Jake Arabo are all protected by the same people?

That operation behind Adams is obviously efficent! Man it seems like just yesterday that Adams was jailed now he`s out. Hmmmmm like Freeway and in the near future Harry-O. Maybe you were right about the timing of the releases.

So "Grant" is a very discreet financier...... It`s funny Potter never realized what he had on his webpage. To me Grant stands out so far, it`s like he`s screaming at me.

So Grant is to The Krays (out of commision) and to Terry Adams what Lansky, Larner and Palazzolo are to The Mob? Notice the similarites to TR`s handling of Arnold Rothstein.

There`s a new book out called "How To Smuggle Cocaine by the Ton in Five Easy Lessons" by Luca Rastello. What`s interesting about this book is one sentence in the whole book about how The Cuntrera-Caruana became criminal financiers. Which to me is the main story.

How I got from Houston to London is beyond me. i think I need a MRI hehehehe. Let`s get back to Houston shall we.

Up front on your home page you allude to how many confuse Houston / Galveston with New Orleans but based on what you have here the South Texas syndicate sems to be far more better connected and more criminally creative. Does New Orleans have a "legal" face like The Maceos / Fertittas? I`m assuming that The Marcellos have some kind of connection back to TR?

New Orleans isn't any different from all of the other cities traditionally listed as mob cities. As a rule of thumb you find the early incarnation of these "families" were engaged in the distribution of fruit in their respective communities. Nearly all were affiliated with the United Fruit Company or one of it's Cutouts... New Orleans and the entire Gulf region is dominated by the old Maceo syndicate. In Louisiana's gaming industry "the dominant player" Skip Falgout also controls the largest used car network. He is a cousin of the Fertitta's who are in firm control of the best casinos in Biloxi and Louisiana in addition to Stations and the Golden Nugget casino brands, MMA, Landry's and an assortment of other ventures. The south is truly a small community in Terms relating to influence and economic power. So the question is how did Marcello gain so much influence? A better question would possibly be did he ever wield that much influence or was he a journalistic creation?

I remember those players from your article on The Maceos / Fertittas. Some of which are on that window in Beverly Hills. Marcello was obviously a journalistic creation. Afterall the Maceos wouldn`t have so much clout in "his territory". So The Marcellos never had the upperworld / finance sponsorship as a result they never evolved.

The United Fruit Company connection I never saw but I noticed the Italian greengrocer connection. This reminds me of the thing you wrote about General Smedley. So who owns UFC? is this another front? Yeah I can see why you`re fascinated by The Maceos.
