1. Abel Danger (AD) asserts that Donald Trump had Philip Testa –also known as "The Chicken Man" – killed in 1981 and, over the next few years, the global loansharking and casino businesses of the Five Families and Chicago Outfit transferred to the Rizutto crime family in Montreal to finance operations such as the bombing of Air India Flight 182 on June 23, 1985 and the droning of Boeing aircraft used in attacks falsely attributed to Osama bin Laden on 9/11.
2. AD asserts that Trump used FBI Director James Comey – former lead prosecutor in case of the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia – to structure cat-bonds for Serco sponsor banks, namely Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of New York/Mellon, HSBC and Citibank to be triggered by controlled demolitions of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11.
3. AD will expose the role of Serco loan-shark bankers in the extortion of the ICAO Montreal to the point where Trump casino death-pool guests can put any plane, anywhere, through remotely-controlled decoy, drone and liquidation maneuvers and bet on the precise time of victim deaths.

Trump's 'Art of the Deal' Is a Total Fraud
There's been little discussion of how Trump might be influenced by the billionaire backing him: himself.
By Nomi Prins / TomDispatch October 1, 2015

The 2016 election campaign is certainly a billionaire's playground when it comes to "establishment candidates" like Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush who cater to mega-donors and use their money to try to rally party bases. The only genuine exception to the rule this time around has been Bernie Sanders, who has built a solid grassroots following and funding machine, while shunning what he calls "the billionaire class" that fuels the super PACs.
Donald Trump, like Ross Perot back in the 1992 and 1996 elections, has played quite a different trick on the money-saturated American political system. He has removed the billionaire as middleman between citizen plebeians and political elites, and created a true .00001% candidate, because he's... well, a financial elite unto himself, however conveniently posed as the country's straight-talking "everyman." ..
The Donald has long perfected two proven strategies for winning: attack and deflect. On both counts, he is a TV veteran. Appearing on NBC's Late Night with David Letterman in 1987 to promote The Art of the Deal, his skill in deflecting attention from aspects of his life that might otherwise diminish his aura was already on full display. When Letterman probed the particulars of Trump's personal wealth multiple times, he dodged effectively, insisting, "You'll never get it out of me." He also deflected his host's question about the degree to which his father’s money contributed to his success. "He was a solid guy and a bright guy, I learned a lot" was about all Letterman could dig out of him on Fred Trump.
.. Trump's Bankruptcies As Carly Fiorina made crystal clear to almost 23 million Americans in the second Republican debate (the topic had been broached in the first one), Trump's companies have officially gone bankrupt four times since 1991, or as Trump spun it, "I used the law four times and made a tremendous thing. I'm in business. I did a very good job."
While that's a small number of bankruptcies relative to the hundreds of companies that comprise his empire, they represented a fair amount of debt. There was the Trump Taj Mahal (with $1 billion in debt) in Atlantic City in 1991 and the Trump Plaza Hotel in Atlantic City in 1992 (with $550 million in debt). Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, the company created from the post-bankruptcy ashes of the Taj Mahal, the Trump Plaza, and also Trump Marina in Atlantic City filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (with $1.8 billion of debt) in 2004. Bankruptcy number four, Trump Entertainment Resorts (the post-bankruptcy company created to take over the remains of Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (with $1.74 billion of debt) in February 2009. ..
In 1989, for instance, Trump purchased the Eastern Air Shuttle, connecting New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C. with hourly flights, for roughly $365 million. But the Trump name didn't carry the day and passengers didn't pony up for the line's fancier seats and gold lavatory fixtures. Instead, in 1990 Trump defaulted on the loans he had taken out to finance the company, and its ownership reverted to its creditors, led by Citibank. The Trump Shuttle was then merged into a new corporation, Shuttle Inc., and in April 1992, its routes were assumed by USAir Shuttle, which is one way the rich make problems disappear.
.. Unfortunately, we are used to politicians saying whatever they think they need to say to be elected president, and falling way short of their campaign promises on the job. Even scarier would be the notion of selling America to the craftiest bidder. The election may be more than a year away, but isn't it time to dig beneath the carefully crafted persona that is Trump and unearth the person and the full spectrum of his business dealings? To see the real Donald Trump is to plunge into all the conflicts of interest he denies, the financial tricks he dispenses, the crucial details he obfuscates, and the flimflam he offers up day in, day out.

"The airport managers' convention takes a turn
Paul Benoit, Ottawa Citizen
Published: Friday, September 02, 2011
On Sept. 11, 2001, most of the world’s airport managers were at a convention in Montreal. The Airports Council International represents virtually all airports in the world and all member airport managers were at the conference.
I was the chair of the Canadian Airports Council, the association of all Canadian airports. At 8: 30 a.m. on the 11th I was on the stage of the Palais de Congrès de Montréal introducing the then minister of transport, David Collenette, who was to address the convention on the importance of aviation. Part way through his speech, I noticed that there was an increase in the number of journalists in the hall.
The then associate deputy minister of transport, Louis Ranger, sent me a note stating that aircraft had struck the World Trade Center and to try and end the minister’s speech. We waited until the end of the speech, when the minister left the stage without taking questions. The minister and his staff immediately left by car for Ottawa.
An announcement was made and everyone gathered by two large television screens and watched in shock the events unfold. Standing next to me was the president of Airports Council – North America. We were watching the screens when one of the towers came down. He was the former director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. His former office and former employees, people that he had worked with for years, were housed in that tower.
The emotions were overwhelming. The port authority lost 84 of its employees that day.
We then heard that the Pentagon had been struck and that an aircraft had gone down in Pennsylvania. It was now beyond a doubt this was a co-ordinated attack. People were attempting to call their airports and to make alternate flight arrangements to get back to their airports when word came that North American airspace was being shut down.
Everyone was now stranded, most for days, until the airspace reopened. To manage the crisis, rooms were set up at the Palais, regrouping areas geographically: the European, Asia Pacific, and North Americans.
I was one of the lucky ones able to get back within a couple of hours. My team had set up a command centre at the airport. The rest of the day was taken up with co-ordinating with Transport Canada, DND, the police, other agencies and airlines.
Paul Benoit is president and CEO of the Ottawa Airport Authority."

Vito Rizzuto, Montreal's Teflon don, rose to power with a Faustian deal

The Mafia life gave Vito Rizzuto the sports cars, the Caribbean golf getaways, the millions of dollars salted away in Swiss bank accounts – and the fear and respect of other hardened criminals.
Mr. Rizzuto secured his climb to power on a spring night of 1981 when, pistol in hand and a ski mask over his face, he and three other gunmen hid in the cloakroom closet of a Brooklyn club, waiting for the signal to begin shooting at a trio of renegade mobsters.
That triple killing cemented his standing with the Bonanno crime family and in the ensuing years his clan became as powerful as the New York Mafia’s famous Five Families.
"The Rizzuto crime family, sometimes referred to as the Sixth Crime Family, is a violent criminal enterprise …responsible for importing and distributing tons of heroin, cocaine and marijuana in Canada, laundering hundreds of millions of dollars, lending out millions more through loansharking operations and has profited handsomely from illegal gambling, fraud and contract killings," American prosecutors allege in court documents filed this year in New York."

"MDA Wins Key U.S. Aviation Contract
Press Release Source: MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd.
Posted Thursday, May 3, 2001
Richmond, B.C. - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSE: MDA) announced today the company has been awarded a contract by the United States Air Force to develop a system to be used by specialists at Air Force bases to design Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs). IAPs are published instructions to pilots specifying a series of aircraft maneuvers that must be executed for the aircraft to transition safely from an en route airway to a runway final approach when flying by instruments. MDA's system ingests digital terrain and elevation data, air navigation data (such as the locations of navigation aids, runways, buildings and towers) to build and display a virtual model of the physical environment surrounding an airport. It then develops the complex surfaces that define a safe approach corridor for any of the dozens of IAP variants, and determines whether any of the defined surfaces are penetrated by terrain or man-made obstacles. It flags these incursions to the operator, who can quickly modify the approach procedure through a drag-and-drop user interface.
This initial award, valued at $2.9 million (CDN), consists of a fixed price element to develop, integrate, and test the system. The next phase will include installation, government testing, and operator training. The contract includes an option for the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to adapt the system for their needs. The U.S. Air Force also has options to field the successful system at up to 108 air bases around the world, and to award T&M support contracts for up to 8 years. MDA plans to team up with Air Navigation Data (AND) of Ottawa to offer a custom solution, based on AND's "Final Approach" product.
MDA President and CEO Daniel Friedmann said: "This is a significant project for MDA that has the potential to improve the safety of air transportation for many other air forces and civil aviation authorities world wide."

"Catastrophe bonds (also known as cat bonds) are risk-linked securities that transfer a specified set of risks from a sponsor to investors. They were created and first used in the mid-1990s in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew and the Northridge earthquake.
Catastrophe bonds emerged from a need by insurance companies to alleviate some of the risks they would face if a major catastrophe occurred, which would incur damages that they could not cover by the premiums, and returns from investments using the premiums, that they received. An insurance company issues bonds through an investment bank, which are then sold to investors. These bonds are inherently risky, generally BB, and usually have maturities less than 3 years. If no catastrophe occurred, the insurance company would pay a coupon to the investors, who made a healthy return. On the contrary, if a catastrophe did occur, then the principal would be forgiven and the insurance company would use this money to pay their claim-holders. Investors include hedge funds, catastrophe-oriented funds, and asset managers. They are often structured as floating-rate bonds whose principal is lost if specified trigger conditions are met. If triggered the principal is paid to the sponsor. The triggers are linked to major natural catastrophes. Catastrophe bonds are typically used by insurers as an alternative to traditional catastrophe reinsurance.
For example, if an insurer has built up a portfolio of risks by insuring properties in Florida, then it might wish to pass some of this risk on so that it can remain solvent after a large hurricane. It could simply purchase traditional catastrophe reinsurance, which would pass the risk on to reinsurers. Or it could sponsor a cat bond, which would pass the risk on to investors. In consultation with an investment bank, it would create a special purpose entity that would issue the cat bond. Investors would buy the bond, which might pay them a coupon of LIBOR plus a spread, generally (but not always) between 3 and 20%. If no hurricane hit Florida, then the investors would make a healthy return on their investment. But if a hurricane were to hit Florida and trigger the cat bond, then the principal initially contributed by the investors would be transferred to the sponsor to pay its claims to policyholders. The bond would technically be in default and be a loss to investors.
Michael Moriarty, Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department, has been at the forefront of state regulatory efforts to have U.S. regulators encourage the development of insurance securitizations through cat bonds in the United States instead of off-shore, through encouraging two different methods—protected cells and special purpose reinsurance vehicles. In August 2007 Michael Lewis, the author of Liar's Poker and Moneyball, wrote an article about catastrophe bonds that appeared in The New York Times Magazine, entitled "In Nature's Casino.""
"Cantor Fitzgerald's corporate headquarters and New York City office,on the 101st–105th floors of One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan(2–6 floors above the impact zone of a hijacked airliner), were destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. At 8:46:46 A.M., six seconds after Cantor's tower was struck by the plane, a Goldman Sachs server issued an alert saying that its trading system had gone offline because it wasn't able to connect with a Cantor server. Cantor Fitzgerald lost over two-thirds of its workforce, considerably more than any of the other World Trade Center tenants or the New York City Police Department, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department, the New York City Fire Department, and the United States Department of Defense."
