Romney Tobacco Deal With Russian Mob and GOP

Begun as Smuggling Operation Through GOP and KGB, Later Became Russian Mob Partnership

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Stories hitting the press today about Bain Capital and the Russian cigarette market tell only a small part of the story.  Stories say that Romney sent representatives to Russia to aid them in selling cigarettes but this is quite misleading.  The real deal was between the GOP and Russian Mafia with Bain only acting as “consultant.”

The GOP organized cigarette smuggling into Russia through Poland in late 1990 and early 1991, paying of KGB operatives in Russia.  Cigarette sales in Russia were a method then of supplying income for disabled veterans, as cigarette kiosks were a “perk” of military service and a method of survival for many.

Initially, cigarettes came from vending companies in the US, were shipped in 20 foot containers into Gdansk, Poland, and trucked into Russia where the profits were split with the KGB.

The first few shipments were all Marlboro and traded for vodka which was offloaded in Chicago.  Where it went from there, who knows.

The KGB, in turn, arranged for Soviet bankers to tour the US, with Republican Party hosts and CIA security.  Arrangements were made to set up a worldwide money laundering operation, I think we know who runs that.

Word was already out that the Soviet Union was down to its last days.  The commercial banks of Leningrad, Moscow, the Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia and Estonia made deals with members of the GOP to split their assets, money removed from Russia, half to go to the Bush family and party leaders, the other half to be kept for the KBG who would be invited into the United States to run the Russian  mafia and take over heroin distribution through the communities they would establish in Brighton Beach/Little Odessa.

Money laundering began through Cyprus, where organized crime had taken a strong foothold, and moved through accounts in Switzerland and the Caymans to selected banks in the US, some in Denver, some in Detroit and the major one in Astoria, New York, the former home of the Steinway Piano Company.

The first cigarette deals were negotiated by old line CIA accompanied by national leaders of the GOP.  Just by accident, I attended more than one of those meetings and I don’t even smoke.

I remember that thousands of cigarette machines were to be offered also but were refused.  Russians felt they could never be secured.

Meetings were also held between the GOP, CIA and Diebold, the company accused of aiding in the rigging of voting machines.  Diebold wanted a foothold in Soviet/Russian banking.

I remember Diebold talking about ATM machines and the Soviets responding that they had only recently decided to start using teller windows.  You just don’t forget that level of irony.

As I remember, I may have sat through those also.

The bank deals were cemented during a private fundraiser at the Pierre hotel in New York.  I remember sitting between a key US senator responsible for overseeing banking issues and a lobbyist for this new partnership.

The evening was an interesting mix of major corporations and “made guys” filling the room.  There are photos, nobody was careful.

The critical issue to be clear on is that the cigarette deal had little to do with cigarette companies and much to do with enriching GOP leaders who financed their retirement, huge homes, boats, all of it with laundered stolen cash from Russia, profits from cigarette deals and cemented a partnership with the Russian mafia which would later be supplanted with deals run through Kosovo and Albania, more vicious criminals, less cultured and more conveniently located for managing the world’s heroin business.

This is why Camp Bondsteel was built, one of America’s largest overseas bases, to channel heroin from, at that time, Turkey, today from Afghanistan, into Western Europe and the US.

The question being asked is how a Mormon can represent “big tobacco” when the real question is why would a Mormon open hundreds or thousands of numbered bank accounts in “safe havens” and work with organized crime.

Then again, a study of both the CIA and FBI lends itself to tales of the “Mormon Mafia,” and their stranglehold on those organizations.

Anyone who comes against the Mormons and lives in the Western United States knows what real terrorism is like.

    Now it should also be noted that a number of musicians in Israel, both Jewish and Muslim (Palestinian) as well as Christians, make music together in harmony. My connections to Israel are simple, do not marry an American Jew they told me. Gene Simmons does not represent Israel and never did. Simmons is not a Jew. He is a satanist. Many in Israel are begging for their organized crime to be destroyed too. We are not in a War on Terror, we are in a War on Organized Crime. The Nazis would love more than anything to label it all a cabal. That falls into their propaganda of all Jews are cabal and worthy of the gas chamber. Not true. The overwhelming majority of Israelites live in apartments and they hate it!

    Wolf, “goyim” have no use for the 10 commandments. Goyim like to have sex with whoever they want and adultery is encouraged, case in point ASHLEY MADISON. Goyim are cruel to animals and mock kosher slaughters because prayer and humane slaughter are the essence of a “KOSHER” kill. Just as “goyim” will put a statue of a BULL on Wall Street, which is really no different than the Israelites worshiping the golden calf and then being destroyed for it. Just as “kosher” is clear do not drink blood do not eat brains, result? MAD COW DISEASE ! Now this storm will slam NJ and NY in the days to come. Are we to be sympathetic to the Mafia and the Church of Satan controlling that area? I’m thinking we should simply prepare to divide the Street between the other stock market, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Denver.

    AnthonyH, you wrote “… the law of nature that ALLOWS us to do whatever we please, …” now you may fool others but not me. Do What Thou Wilt – Albert Pike luciferianism. The suffering only occurs if caught, which is why in Ohio the GOP destroyed the local law enforcement agencies citing “budget problems”. What actually happened was that the LAW dug deep and penetrated the secret societies and discovered ritual rapes and murder, many of children around the age of 6. Thus, the secret societies sacked the agencies investigating them and cut off funding. I’m so criticized for supporting martial law, but until another comes up with a better way, a total and complete purge is the only solution. Now, thanks to Wisconsin advocates, we were able to get the funding back into law enforcement and overturned the GOP’s bill last November. At what cost though is still unknown. The Charles Manson cult uprising started in the Chillicothe area. I challenge every single reader to consider this: why is it President’s #41, 42 and 43 all found it important to visit Chillicothe, Ohio. It is a run down town, people. BUT, there are underground tunnels and the investigation has concluded this is where the human sacrifice rituals are/were done. The current POTUS has never been there. Manson was instructed by the Church of Satan, headquartered in New York City. You can bet your life savings they have major cash flow and significant holdings in banks AND / OR credit unions. Significant underground ritual sites include the area of Plain City (directly west of Columbus) and Grove City (southern suburb of Columbus). But the reality is that they are all interconnected to the Masonic temples via the underground railroad and sewers, which is why that state has such a problem with COCKROACHES. The eggs of those disgusting bugs get on the soles of the cultists feet and spread throughout the city./ AnthonyH, still a promoter of “do what thou wilt”? If so, you’ve got a one-way ticket to the FEMA camp of your choice.

    Mark, you have no idea of the sacrifices most LDS missionaries make to go on their missions; they save up for years- they do no dating for 2 years of missionary work- some have been killed for their beliefs, and sometimes live in the most primitive of circumstances depending on where they’re sent. Romney actually at times had a hole in the floor for a commode in France. (Not suggesting that he didn’t have the money for whatever he would have wanted, but it doesn’t work that way). You work 6 days a week going door-to–door for hours- snow, freezing rain, terrible heat– and it can be a thankless endeavor so much of the time,
    You don’t see your family for years and often the girl you thought you were going to marry has found someone else by the time you get back- or tells you of this in a letter while you are still away,
    Again- no dates- and I don’t know about now, but when my husband was on his mission there were no phone calls home, either. And sometimes you wind up starting on the mission just before Christmas.

    I would hardly be proud about letting out the air on these young men’s tires.

    BTW- your :”day off” consists of doing your laundry, helping people in the Church ward, writing letters home and studying. And you pay your own expenses- food and lodging. You even pay for airfare one way.

    Romney is Romney- and there are others that shame the Church– but the ones that I met for so many years before I joined were kind and caring- and incredibly helpful.

    Once when we were driving through Provo, UT, something went wrong with our car. A total stranger towed it to Salt Lake City and wouldn’t take a penny for doing so, Then another who owned a motel put us up for barter, while another who managed a hotel gave us a free room (we had little money). This is not atypical. And I wasn’t a member! Once they heard I was Jewish they couldn’t do enough for us!

  5. vickissmith  October 25, 2012 at 4:00 pm

    Bill, that’s patent nonsense. The idea of exceeding Jesus in holiness is absolute baloney. Your comments exude blatant ignorance- reading anti-Mormon propaganda does not result in valid beliefs.
    For years my husband and I were apologists for the faith- and had to respond to a lot of drivel like this.

    Jesus is the Son of God- He is our Savior- without His sacrifice we all would be lost for eternity. We worship the Father in Jesus’ holy Name. Jesus and His Father are our only Gods.

    If you want to get into godhood, however, you can start with learning what the Bible has to say- and the OT Scripture which Jesus talked about- “Does it not say in your Law ye are gods AND THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN”.. get yourself a Strong’s Concordance and do some research- it will take you from that quote to the Book of Revelations- and when you put it all together you will find Church teachings to be quite compatible– and this includes baptism for the dead.

    In that quote Jesus was saying that if God called those who received Scripture gods, then why did they want to stone Him for saying He was the Son of God? And knowing that people would try to explain away what was said, was the reason He said “and the Scripture cannot be broken”.

    It’s sad that people like Romney bring out the anti-Mormon folks. I’m a Jewish convert of 34 years and the Church is not a “secret society”; the Masonic rites go back to the building of the Jewish temples. Joseph Smith was a Mason for awhile, but claimed that God had told him that the Masonic rites were a bastardization of the true rites and that the rites to be performed in the LDS Temples are correct.

    If there are any “secret societies” within the Church general members have no idea of this. Now one of the latter-day 12 apostles was a cousin of my husband’s mother so I do have a bit of knowledge.

    Nevertheless, I do get the feeling that the vast holdings of the Church might have led to things of which most of us know nothing. But as far as Church leaders being handsomely paid, I know that many of them left business positions that were very lucrative; by the same token, when I joined, Heber C Kimball was president and lived in the same little modest home he had had with Camilla for many, many years. NMonies collected go for constructing Temples and churches, helping the poor, etc. Our leaders don’t live like Paul and Jan Crouch.

    Charlotte NC Bill:

    I am LDS- and no fan of Romney’s he is a disgrace to our Church.

    BTW, they don’t own Coca-Cola (I’m an organic vegetarian, btw).

    Re our “strange teachings”; without the proper foundation, they can seem strange.

    Let me ask you, however- if you are Christian you will understand:

    Suppose you were totally unfamiliar with conventional Christian teachings coming from the Bible- and you were told that Jesus said that if you don’t drink his blood and eat his flesh you have no part with Him?

    And suppose you heard that He had said that He hadn’t come to bring peace, but rather to turn parents against children, brother against brother, etc?

    Suppose you heard that He withered a fig tree just because it didn’t have figs out of season because He was hungry?

    Suppose you read “If you’ve seen the Father, you have seen Me”?

    Suppose you were told that Jesus told a follower of His that he couldn’t go home to bury his father, but should let the dead bury the dead?

    Do you understand my point? When things are taken out of context, or sufficient foundation isn’t laid- then tremendous distortion of teachings presents itself.

    Who would want to become Christian having heard the above without sufficient “milk before solid food”?

    But this has nothing to do with Romney- who has done enough it seems to have been disfellowshipped in the least or excommunicated. From bearing false witness, to other lying, to promoting death both here and in Russia.

    I think that he is more “Mormon” than Latter-Day-Saint- steeped in Mormon culture with an influential family that goes way back in Church history, rich and insulated- believing that the Bible and Book of Mormon are true, recognizing the Doctrine and Covenants- but internalizing next to nothing of Christ’s teachings.

    BTW, tithing is not a “charitable contribution” in LDS teaching; according to the Bible if you don’t tithe you rob God– I have no doubt he believes in this– it’s hardly a sacrifice for him. And of course he will give generous offerings- it would look pretty bad for him if he didn’t.

    One delightful story: years ago when he was Bishop, a young pregnant woman had been told by her doctor that her pregnancy had become life-threatening; he went to her father’s house and when discussing this with her said “Why should you have it that easy (abortion)? Other women don’t have it that easy.”

    Her father threw him out of the house and told him never to talk to his daughter again. It is not Church policy to do more than counsel in a case like this- they never dictate. And when the life of the mother is in jeopardy they always tell you that if you want to go through with the pregnancy that is wonderful but that God would not hold it against you not to in circumstances such as this. The same would go for rape or incest.

    No mention of those who really did the deed and that they were sent by Israel.

  9. davidmartin  October 25, 2012 at 1:04 am

    L O L ! Whatever you need, you let me know, Mr. Duff.

  10. Gordon Duff  October 24, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Best part, David, I can name everyone in the room for any of these meetings…some of which I attended with Ken George, some with George Solomos and Some with a GOP official who died rather mysteriously.

    Nice photo of us with 41 in a bag in the closet.

    At least Anne reportedly, when asked, sd she would worry about Mitt’s ” mental health” if he would win….Hmmmm…Yeah, according to the LDS Jesus is something of a divine Amway salesman who they can exceed in holiness…Having their own planet, keeping the wife that they were “sealed with ” in the Temple and thus able to send “spirit babies” or new souls down to their planet…..God the Father’s planet ( near a star cld Kolub ) must be the nicest…but who knows? It’s a breakaway Masonic branch…and not entirely authorized=the real reason for J. Smith’s “persecution”…

  13. wolf  October 24, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    I agree. Well done. And is there any doubt that Amerika is destined to be Exodus #25? It’s already started. The progeny of the goyim will wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

  14. DaveE  October 24, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Just read your Exodus #23m about the “plight” of the Jews in Russia… the biggest scam from the biggest liars, murderers, thieves, crooks and all ’round scumbags (the “Israelites”) planet Earth has ever seen.

    A powerful presentation…… well done. Thank you.

  15. AnthonyH  October 24, 2012 at 9:49 am

    “Law is only for people who stand up against the powerful.”

    Actually, “WRITTEN Law is only…”

    We are all subject to the law of nature that ALLOWS us to do whatever we please, and REQUIRES us to enjoy, or suffer, consequences of our actions. From this law there is no dispensation – no escape.

  16. davidmartin  October 24, 2012 at 9:17 am

    Aine, so Mormon women will injest known poisons called SSRI’s but CONDEMN smoking cigarettes and drinking beer or coffee? Any votes for laying siege to Salt Lake City? Anne Romney is a Project Monarch mind kontrol bot. G-d help us if they win the White House. Obviously Obama knows of Romney’s felonies. Is there any justice in this society?

  17. davidmartin  October 24, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Mormons are a secret society for a reason. They don’t want anyone to know what their rituals are until they have that person in their clutches. I had a “friend” who was Mormon. A hypocrite if ever I knew one. I met a business woman a few months back who swore on her life that when she was in Utah there were no chemtrails. The 49 states have these poisons being dumped in our sky, just not Utah? It doesn’t take a PhD to figure out this “secret society” is hellbent on genocide of the chattal. And it should be noted, I will bet my last dollar sexual abuse of children occurs underneath those temples in Salt Lake and elsewhere. What else goes on? Someone needs to put spychips in them temples.

  18. davidmartin  October 24, 2012 at 9:05 am

    Mr. Duff, thank you so very much for this article. It ties in my own personal misfortune of having a death threat waged on myself and my wife at the time by the Russian Mafya because of the stupidity of a relative in Aspen over cocaine. The only question left is, when do we fire off the Paladins with their micronuke shells? These traitors deserve total annihilation.

  19. Charlotte NC Bill  October 24, 2012 at 6:25 am

    Gordon….what of the Benghazi story on ? good, mostly good…Seems entirely plausible and mostly in sync with your sources…The noose tightens: the Masonic Mormons in the CIA helped offer up Ambassador Stevens..

  20. mpennery  October 24, 2012 at 4:18 am

    Isn’t that what you’re doing every day anyway? Or are you implying you’re not? Hmmm.
    As soon as I posted I thought I should have clarified that statement, knowing how little ‘law’ there really is. Trying to be briefer than usual…figures.

    He’s even got the star on his face. Horns, hands, star. I found this image on a simple search but no info on it’s origin. Obviously you guys didn’t make this…but wondering if you understood the symbolism in choosing it.


  21. markboughton  October 23, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    When I was young we used to let down the tires on their pushbikes while they were busy bothering people.

    Now we just have to deflate Romney.

  22. Mike  October 23, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    I’m glad you mentioned diebold, since there are now stories of Mittons son through Bain , purchasing voter machines in 5 states…..Very troubling. Looks like a repeat of the 2000 election fiasco..

  23. Aine  October 23, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    An extraordinary high percentage of Mormon woman are ‘on’ antidepressants. It’s somewhere between 40-60%. The highest use of a female population in the US.

  24. Charlotte NC Bill  October 23, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    I dated a Mormon once…wanted me to convert..Very strange religion…The worst thing about them? If you don’t like them they assume it must be bc you’re ” a liberal Democrat..” or a “feminist”…The fact that they’re heretics goes over their heads…Don’t they own Coca-Cola too? Selling cigarettes? anything for a buck I guess…

  25. Gordon Duff  October 23, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    Law is only for people who stand up against the powerful.

  26. mpennery  October 23, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Did you know you were rubbing elboes with mafia criminals at the time or is this all in retrospect? Shouldn’t this be evidence in a court of law?
    Also, gotta say I love the photo of Baphomet at the lead. Complete with the extra umph of the hand signals. Oh sorry, just a coincidence? Is that the official Russian mafia logo or did you guys come up with that gem on your own? Just wondering how much credit to give.

    So, it looks like we are under siege and occupation from two sides: Judeo-Bolsheviks (Soviet branch) and Judeo-Bolsheviks (Chinese branch).

    You document 1) the alliance between Judeo-Bolsheviks (J-Bs) and the native Russian criminal (and useful-idiot) classes and 2) their infiltration of the US. Interestingly, during the reorganizing of the Soviet slave pen (falsely reported as a breakup), upwards of a million and a half Judeo-Bolsheviks (1987-92) fled Russia and Ethiopia as they feared a mass slaughter by restive slaves who thought the reorganization was, instead, a dissolution of the communist power structure. This mass Exodus was copiously reported by the Los Angeles Times, and hardly anyone noticed it, I summarize such events with, “Exodus #23, part one” (

    During the same time frame, the Federal Reserve, US Treasury, Congress and probably other agencies were coordinating the eventual occupation of America by the alliance comprised of 1) the Chinese Communist Party, 2) Mexican and Columbian drug cartels and 3) Chinese triads – all documented by a Congressional committee. All three parts of this alliance are dominated (glued together) by Judeo-Bolsheviks – no one else would have the knowledge, experience or resources to do so. See my article, “Anatomy of a General Plunder, part two” (
