Corruption - A $6 Million Gift
To Oil Company
In years past this alone would have been a major story and the corruption involved would not be tolerated. But this year it's just one more thing - a relatively small thing. We all know what is behind it - payments from lobbyists. The people involved will be leaving the government soon to "work" at the oil companies for unusually high pay. Gov't drops demand for Chevron royalty,
The department's Minerals Management Service had maintained that Chevron owed an additional $6 million for gas it took under federal leases in the Gulf between 1996 and 2002 and sold to Dynegy Inc., a company Chevron partially owns.
Essentially, the government argued that Chevron undervalued the gas it sold to Dynegy. Chevron paid royalties based on a price that didn't represent fair market value, the government auditors said.
But last summer, the government quietly rescinded its demand for the additional royalties. That decision was reported Tuesday by the New York Times, based on documents the newspaper obtained through a freedom of information request.
The story comes on the same day as a larger story about the Republican Congress getting rid of the only agency conducting ANY oversight of Iraq spending. This is just two stories about corruption today. There will be two more tomorrow and the day after...

Former Dynegy Accountant Re-Sentenced
to Less Time
By Brenda Sapino Jeffreys, Texas Lawyer
On Sept. 22, U.S. District Judge Sim Lake of Houston re-sentenced former Dynegy Inc. accountant Jamie Olis to six years in prison.
The 72-month prison term is 75 percent less than Olis' original sentence of 24 years in prison.
In 2003, Olis was convicted of securities fraud, mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy in connection with a transaction known as Project Alpha. Using mandatory sentencing guidelines, Lake sentenced Olis in 2004 to 292 months in prison, and Olis began serving his sentence in May 2004.
Olis' appeal has been highly watched not only for the length of his sentence in comparison to other recent, high-profile white-collar crime sentences, but because he was sentenced prior to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in United States v. Booker. In Booker, the Supreme Court held that sentencing guidelines are advisory instead of mandatory, and sentences must be "reasonable."
In October 2005, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision in Olis' appeal, affirming his conviction, but ordering Lake to re-sentence him on the ground that prosecutors had not established beyond a reasonable doubt that Lake would have sentenced Olis to 24 years in prison under Booker's overall standard of reasonableness. The 5th Circuit found that in applying the sentencing guidelines to Olis' sentence, Lake overstated the loss caused by Olis' crimes.
Olis' attorney, David Gerger, of David Gerger & Associates in Houston, says, "We're grateful for the reduction and this case shows the need for our independent judiciary."
Don DeGabrielle, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Texas, says he was surprised by the sentencing reduction.
"I know the judge gave a very thorough and thoughtful consideration to the sentence he imposed," DeGabrielle says.
During a half-hour sentencing hearing last Friday, Lake pegged the loss caused by Olis at $79 million, which was the amount of tax savings Dynegy received through Project Alpha.
"The court concludes that $79 million is a reasonably certain estimate of the pecuniary harm that the defendant intended to result from his offense," Lake writes in a 33-page Memorandum Opinion he issued after the hearing.
Based primarily on that $79 million loss, Lake found that the guidelines would call for a prison sentence of 151 to 188 months. At the original sentencing, Lake found that the guidelines called for a sentence ranging from 292 to 365 months.
In the original sentencing, Lake found the conspiracy caused a loss of $105 million to one shareholder, the University of California Retirement System.
But Lake concluded in his Sept. 22 opinion that a sentence within the guidelines range would not be reasonable and a nonguideline sentence of 72 months is appropriate.
In looking at factors outside the sentencing guidelines, Lake found that Olis did not have ultimate authority at Dynegy to approve the Project Alpha deal, and he did not prepare the deal documents. Lake also found that the purpose of the conspiracy was not to defraud Dynegy or enrich Olis.
He also found that a lengthy sentence is not necessary to deter Olis or others from future criminal conduct.

Enron judge comes to trial
By MARY FLOOD, Houston Chronicle
Straight-laced, hard-working and reserved is a pretty universal description of the judge who will oversee the trial of former Enron icons Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling.
"He's not the guy who will be bringing the whoopee cushion," said Rufus Wallingford, a former partner of U.S. District Judge Sim Lake. Lake practiced at Fulbright & Jaworski before Ronald Reagan appointed him to the bench in 1988....
Prepared for court
David Beck, a Houston lawyer who recruited Lake to Fulbright & Jaworski, said the young lawyer's promise was easy to spot. He had been No. 1 in his law class at the University of Texas and No. 6 in undergraduate school at Texas A&M University....
Lake comes to court prepared, having read the endless papers filed in this Enron case....
It's hard to find people who have anything but praise....
Kent Schaffer, a criminal defense attorney with a largely federal practice, said Lake is "probably government-leaning; that being said, he's extremely intelligent. He'll arrive at what he thinks is the right decision even if the lawyers didn't do the work."...
Lake did not want to be interviewed for this report, saying he is just the referee in this case.
“He approaches the job of a judge just like he says, as a referee — guided by law and precedent," said Tom McDade, another former partner.
Lake's appointment garnered some protest at the time. He was a member of a country club with no black members, and he had defended waste collection and recycling company Browning-Ferris Industries in a civil rights suit.
In 1990, after Lake had been on the bench more than a year, he got publicity in a legal newspaper for being the judge who had so many stock holdings he had to bow out of more cases than other Houston federal judges because of financial conflicts of interest.
The judge divested himself of some corporate interests about that time, saying he didn't want so many conflicts.
Lake is probably most famous for sentencing Jamie Olis, a former Dynegy executive, to 24 years in prison. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the sentence, and Lake is expected to hand down a new sentence later this year, though he has indicated it will not be light....

Offshore Drilling Controversy
by: Tuquyen Mach (email@example.com), News 13
PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL - Many thought the idea of drilling in the Gulf of Mexico off florida was no longer up for discussion.
But now, the interior secretary is working on a plan that would give pro-drilling Alabama and Louisiana authority over portions of the Gulf south of the Panhandle where drilling is currently prohibited.
The six million acres under discussion, called Lease Sale Area 181, is a little more than 130 miles from Panama City.
Florida's U.S. senators and 14 of the state's 25 House members say they are opposed to offshore drilling.
In a letter sent to the Secretary of the Interior, Gale Norton, the lawmakers stress that the administrative boundary change was published without notice or opportunity for public comment.
They also say that anytime such changes are being considered, lawmakers should be made aware of the full impact, including how it will affect our environment, economy, and national security.
Panama City Beach attracts about six million visitors a year, and with 14,000 local jobs dependent on the tourism industry, anything that affects the World's Most Beautiful Beaches is bound to cause controversy.
The possibility of drilling in the Gulf is causing concern for business owners on Panama City Beach.
John Gheesling's family has been in the hotel business in Panama City Beach for fifty years. He says he finds this latest move to get offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico upsetting.
"It seems like the government, the federal government is trying to do itself what it could not get accomplished at the state and local level. For them to dismiss Florida lawmakers' concerns saying that they don't really understand what's going on is misleading," says Gheesling, owner of Bikini Beach Resort.
Gheesling says he's glad state leaders are standing up to protect what makes the area so special.
"We have very limited natural resources left. Our pristine beaches and coastline that we spend millions of dollars every few years to re-nourish is at stake here. Why we would want to jeopardize that is beyond me," he says.
“Louisiana has offshore drilling, but they don't really have beaches there to sacrifice if they have an accident, so I'd really like to keep our beaches free and clear," says Kevin Brackins, General Manager of the Chateau Motel.
He says he's worried about negative effects from an active hurricane season if drilling were allowed.
"A lot of the hurricanes seem to track up this way and almost seem to blow up right onto our beaches so I don't think many tourists would like to come down and see a semi-submersible oil rig washed up on the beach," says Brackins.
The Tourist Development Council passed a resolution against offshore oil drilling in October.
The resolution reads: "The Tourism Development Council and the Panama City Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau do not support Government initiatives related to exploration and offshore drilling for oil and gas supplies in the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida Coast.

SEC Settles Enforcement Proceedings against J.P. Morgan Chase and Citigroup
~ ~ ~
SEC Press Release
The Securities and Exchange Commission today instituted and settled enforcement proceedings against two major financial institutions, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup, Inc., for their roles in Enron Corp.’s manipulation of its financial statements.
Each institution helped Enron mislead its investors by characterizing what were essentially loan proceeds as cash from operating activities.
The proceeding against Citigroup also resolves the Commission’s charges stemming from the assistance Citigroup provided Dynegy Inc. in manipulating that company’s financial statements through similar conduct....
“These two cases serve as yet another reminder that you can’t turn a blind eye to the consequences of your actions – if you know or have reason to know that you are helping a company mislead its investors, you are in violation of the federal securities laws,” said Stephen M. Cutler, Director of SEC’s Enforcement Division....
The Commission brought its Enron-related actions in coordination with the New York County District Attorney’s Office, which, also today, entered into settlement agreements with J.P. Morgan Chase and Citigroup....
The Commission’s investigations relating to Enron and Dynegy are continuing.

Halliburton Under the Microscope
SEC looking into energy service specialists' accounting for cost overruns; company headed by Vice President Cheney from 1995 to 2000. Also: revolving auditors at Peregrine, and why did Moody's slam Conseco?
Stephen Taub, CFO.com
Yet another former Andersen client is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Energy services specialist Halliburton Co. reported that the Commission has initiated a preliminary investigation into the company's accounting treatment for cost overruns on construction jobs. Halliburton management said it expects to receive a formal request for documents or a subpoena in the next few days.
Halliburton management denied any wrongdoing. "The company believes that it has accounted for construction claims and change orders in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to the construction industry," Halliburton management said in a statement. Not surprisingly, the company's management added that it will cooperate fully with the SEC in its investigation.
The SEC request comes just days after the Commission slapped two other energy sector companies, Reliant Resources and Dynegy, with subpoenas. The SEC is reportedly looking into those companies use of round-trip trades to boost sales.
In addition, the Commission is currently looking at the books of several non-energy industry companies. Those include Qwest Communications, Computer Associates, and Peregrine Systems. Reportedly, the SEC is looking into revenue recognition policies of the three companies.
Earlier this month, the SEC settled its charges against Edison Schools Inc. That corporation had been accused of record- keeping and reporting violations.
Qwest, Peregrine and Halliburton were all clients of embattled auditor Andersen. All of the companies recently fired the indicted auditing firm.
It's not entirely clear what time period regulators at the SEC are focusing on. As you recall, Vice President Dick Cheney was Halliburton's CEO from 1995 to August 2000. He was also chairman of the company from 1996 to October 1998 and from February to August 2000.
In a statement released yesterday, Halliburton management blamed the SEC investigation on an article that appeared in the New York Times on May 22. In that article, certain allegations were reported concerning the company's accounting treatment of construction job claims and change orders which are negotiated with customers.
"Prior to 1998 and the merger with Dresser, the company did not record such items in revenue or accounts receivable before they were resolved with the customer," Halliburton management said.
Senior executives at Halliburton assert that the company disclosed (in its 1998 10-K) it had recorded losses on certain engineering and construction projects related to current year claims and change orders which it did not feel would be accepted by customers.
"Furthermore, in instances where unapproved claims and change orders were recognized in revenue and accounts receivable, no profits at all were recognized on the related projects," Halliburton management added.
According to the company, Halliburton began to record such items as revenue and accounts receivable in 1998 -- but only when Halliburton management expected such items to be collectible from the customer.
"The company has continued this accounting treatment of similar items since 1998 and has never recorded a profit on a job where an unapproved claim or change order has been recorded in revenue," Halliburton management claimed.
In other energy industry news: Dynegy Inc. Chief Executive Officer Charles L. Watson resigned yesterday.
The energy trading company recently disclosed bogus electricity trades with CMS Energy Corp., whose CEO resigned Friday.
And two top traders at Reliant Resources, which also engaged in round-trip trades with CMS, quit as well.
CHARLES “CHUCK” WATSON
Charles "Chuck" Watson was the founder of The Natural Gas Clearinghouse. Later renamed Dynegy, the firm was a highly diverse energy trading company that was similar to rival Enron in many respects. Watson attempted to orchestrate a buyout of Enron in late 2001, but withdrew following the restating of Enron's financials.
Watson left Dynegy in late 2002 when Dynegy's own finances took a turn for the south amid allegations of accounting frauds, misconduct in the California energy crises and other serious problems. He was replaced by Bruce Williamson.
Watson, an Oklahoma State University - Stillwater alum, is principal of Caldwell Watson. He is currently minority owner of the Houston Aeros, and has a minority stake in the Houston Texans, where he chaired Houston's 2004 Super Bowl host committee.

Reported by Star-Bulletin staff & wire
First Hawaiian completes buy of Pacific branches
First Hawaiian Bank yesterday completed its acquisition of Union Bank of California's branch network in Guam and Saipan, assuming deposits of about $200 million.
Former Union Bank customers were told they may now bank at First Hawaiian branches at Maite and Dededo in Guam and in Saipan at Gualo Lai and the former Union Bank branch at Chalan Laulau.
First Hawaiian Bank, the major subsidiary of Honolulu-based BancWest Corp., has been operating in Guam since 1970 and Saipan since 1997. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Tesoro Petroleum Crop. acquires gas stations
Tesoro Petroleum Corp., owner of a refinery and retail gas stations in Hawaii, said it has completed its acquisition of Gull Industries, which has 46 retail fuel operations in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The price was not disclosed.
Last week Tesoro bought a crude-oil pipeline in North Dakota for $90 million. The company, based in San Antonio, got involved in Hawaii in 1998, when it bought BHP Hawaii, an Australia-owned refining and retail gasoline business.
In addition to the Campbell Industrial Park refinery in West Oahu, Tesoro owns 36 fuel stations in Hawaii. The company owns five refineries in the Western United States, and more than 200 retail gasoline stations on the mainland as well as operating more than 400 others.
Dynegy-Enron deal nearly set, sources say
NEW YORK >> Dynegy Inc. is close to finalizing a deal to buy its much larger, albeit troubled, rival Enron Corp., for between $7 billion and $8 billion in stock, a source said.
The deal could be announced today and would include an immediate infusion of about $1.5 billion from ChevronTexaco Corp., which owns more than a quarter of Dynegy, the source said. ChevronTexaco would contribute an additional $1 billion upon completion of the deal, though the source said talks could still fall apart.
Yesterday, Enron said it overstated earnings by about 20 percent over the past four years and kept large amounts of debt off its balance sheets through business partnerships now under SEC investigation.

THE SKINNY ON "SECRET FINANCIAL NETWORK BEHIND ENRON, ILLINOIS POWER-DYNEGY, PARMALAT” and--"THOSE GRAND CAYMAN ACCOUNTS"
By: VK Durham
My friend at http://www.the-catbird-seat.net puts up one of the best sites on exposing this "Billionaire Boys Club" operation of the FINANCIAL NETWORK of GEORGE SOROS and his BANKING, FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC TERRORISM OF THIS ORGANIZED CRIME GROUP operating with Diplomatic Immunity under Treaties international agreements other than treaties section 12087 of the 'privatized' offices of the US Government which were privatized under George H.W. Bush's Administration Executive Order 12803 in 1992.
This Privatization allowed "COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS "Special Interest Groups" to buy up US Tax Payers properties which they pay tax's on regularly..which were sold off by #41.. This allowed these OLD BOYS to operate ABOVE THE LAW..while THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S Deputy, Jamie Gorelick had a DO NOT INVESTIGATE..which took a wide casting of the NET OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES..and even THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES & THE SENATE.. which allowed Organized Crime indulgence in violating of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, the Clayton Act. Section 8, The US Foreign Federal Reserve Act of December 23, 1919, "The Edge."
This further allowed THE U.S. SECURITY EXCHANGE REGULATORS to 'turn a blind eye' to Organized Crime activities which were in fact protected by those operating out of the WHITE HOUSE-Federal Reserve, COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS "GEORGE SOROS" OPERATION which you can read the list of "WHO'S ON FIRST" (in the WH operation) at http://www.conservativeusa.org/whosonfirst-fedam.htm which you can read more about at http://www.inthesetimes.com/site/main/article/explosive_revelation/ which will ultimately tie back in with the GrandCayman Accounts..which ties in with http://www.theantechamber.net/V_K_Durham/HatonnMoneyLaundering.htm and Tias 12087 can be read at http://www.theantechamber.net/VkDocuments/Tias12087/Tias12087Index.html and Executive Order 12803 can be read at http://www.theantechamber.net/UsHistDoc/Exord12803/Exord12803Index.html.
Tias 12087 was incorporated by the AlQaeda Underwriters..being the "Muslim Lady" and her husband (GAIA-EKKER'S) who indulged in Identity Theft of U.S. Federal Government Corporations i.e., Inter-American Development Bank, Inter-American Investment Corporation, the Depository Trust Co...--and one of my TRUST held Corporations known as COSMOS SEAFOOD ENERGY MARKETING, LTD; Nevada ID # 1707-85. All with the participation of LAWRENCE SUMMERS who (Public Print) when asked after he offered to buy Financial Instruments that had already expired for $200MM which I had assigned to these individuals previously, and would not grant extensions on those instruments due to the individuals "trading with nations under sanction by the US State Dept.".. Rick Martin, Doris and E.J. Ekker asked Lawrence Summers: "What about V.K. Durham?" Summers replied: "I refuse to deal with the obnoxious bitch. Let her die!"
The DEAL was cut...the Ekkers hie their hineys off to the Philippines..and set up GEORGE SOROS, BUSH, CLINTON, MARK RICH, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU ETALS "COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS operations for THE WHITE HOUSE".. and that is how...and why.. Hillary and Bush made a fast run to the Philippines (2004) for "money" and Hillary nailed $20 MM for the Democrats, Don't know how much Bush brought back for his Election, but then Mr. Cheney finds it necessary to go down and TAP this 'operation' because "the families need their money" which Tom Flocco exposes in his FINANCIAL TERRORISM expose' on 9/11. You can read about that one at http://www.tomflocco.com/fs/FinancialTerrorism.htm .
At one time we had the full tape recording on the meeting at the Guilarmi Hotel held by the Ekker's..(Commander Hatonn) which is posted in a partial in one of my articles http://www.theantechamber.net/V_K_Durham/AbusingTheCodeOfSilence.html .. This is an article that should be read thoroughly, and read again. This special page was set up for "INVESTIGATORS" involved in Tom Flocco's article http://www.tomflocco.com/fs/SenClintonGrenada.htm ..
Saturday, November 18, 2006 we posted SECRET FINANCIAL NETWORK BEHIND THOSE "GRAND CAYMAN GIGA ACCOUNTS" at http://www.theantechamber.net/V_K_Durham/SecretFinancialNetwork.htm . Wasn't long after..phones went down...and reportedly THE PRESIDENT of the U.S. was told by one of the Far East Countries.. what in essence was "Be out of town before sundown"..
Folks.. This mess must be cleaned up.. Either WE the People are going to clean it up..or FOREIGN NATIONS will execute a WAR and will clean this MALADMINISTRATION mess of the United States Federal Government up for us..and that will not be something to our liking..
So far WE have watched this "Patriot Act" being imposed on all of WE the
People..which actually 'allows' the CRIMINALS in this DRUG & MONEY
LAUNDERING OPERATION to put their feet on the necks of WE the
People..and not allow any legitimate money to flow freely..in our economy.
What they are planning is to allow this DRUG AND MONEY LAUNDERING to
collapse the Nation..with...a COUNTERFEIT Debt operation..then, you will be
using DEBIT CARDS which..these busters can cut off at anytime..at a whim..
as you are herded from place to place just as the people in Ruwanda and
other points of S. Africa which you can read about in Lyndon LaRouch's
Executive Intelligence Review Article "George Bush's "Heart of Darkness"--Mineral Control and Africa" at
Remember- The S&L Crisis started the ball rolling on take over of the MINERAL & WATER RIGHTS of our lands here in the U.S... and if we aren't careful--
I don't think that is what this nation is all about.. and you had best THINK ABOUT IT!
