U.S. Effort to Tap Oil Profits Suffers Blow

A federal court sided with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. in a closely watched case on oil and natural-gas royalties, a development that could help the energy industry resist government efforts to revamp lucrative production agreements in the petroleum-rich Gulf of Mexico.

The federal court in Lake Charles, La., sided with Anadarko's motion for summary judgment, ruling that the federal government couldn't collect royalties on some Gulf of Mexico oil and gas production despite surging energy prices. Anadarko said in a federal filing last year that the royalties and interest it was fighting to protect totaled $157 million.

They helped build the Nazi war machine which led to war, then organised the Cold war through the Big Three summits and that carried on the cashflow on arms ( and space race) and then created a new boggy after the Soviet Unions industrial foundation had rusted up decades out of date. The new boggy is the 'terrorist' which they developed in the Afghan war Russia was fighting. By the time their work is done in the Middle East Canada and Mexico will be part of one country with them which will mean a new chapter in world affairs through NATO.
With Canadian natural resourses and those in the Mexican part of the gulf the dollar will be good for another century of abuse.

I though the obvious by-product would be war, with a surplus of males. If they invade Taiwan the balance should be about right again, if they lose a quarter of a million getting there and gain all the Taiwanese females.
On the other hand they may enter the Middle East/Central Asia region if the Bush war machine takes on Iran/Russia. Bush or Clinton will want all the Mexicans and Canadians they can get then.

Exercise "impotence".

How to turn a super distortion into a mega distortion.

The oil reserves off the coast of Alaska are greater than Saudi Arabia. All they have to do is tap it with the money they are wasting in the Middle East.

They are just messing with everyones minds. The US hasnt got the military science advantage, Russia has and they have warned the US an attack on Iran is an attack on Russia. This exercise and talk is to hide this because if they tried to attack and got slapped down the control in the US would be uprooted by revolt
once the people wake up.

One of the things they are doing is justifying allowing China to become more powerful, so why not just give them the Pacific Fleet?

So there is nothing new here. This one may be for the final stage.

Why should and how can a Democrat win the White House since they have achieved nothing with majorities in both houses. rheteric goes back and forth but the line of policy hasnt deviated.
The 'cave in to the President' is a false claim. The Democrats never had any thing that could be caved in. The Republicans say the glass is half empty and the Democrats say the glass is half full and thus no change but full on arguments.
Dobnt listen to anything said just watch the water level.

Swiss banks implicated in Brazil fraud

Image caption: Reading currency exchanges in the financial district in Rio de Janeiro (Keystone).

Brazilian police detain Swiss banker.
Swiss banking giants UBS and Credit Suisse have confirmed that both have an employee embroiled in a money laundering affair in Brazil.
The two employees are currently in jail in S?o Paulo. The sum involved in the fraud is reported to be around $500 million (SFr665 million).

Brazilian police arrested 19 people on Tuesday on suspicion of money laundering and making illegal currency remittances.

"We have taken note of the fact that an employee from UBS Switzerland has been arrested in S?o Paulo," UBS spokeswoman Rebeca Garcia told the Swiss news agency, adding that the bank itself was not the subject of the probe.

The second case concerns Clariden Leu, a unit of the Credit Suisse Group. A spokesman for Clariden Leu said the bank was in contact with the authorities in Brazil.

The 17 other people arrested are said to be Brazilian businessmen, managers and currency exchangers.

Brazilian police say those arrested are accused of transferring money from companies or wealthy individuals without informing the proper authorities.

The scheme is also alleged to involve the United States-based American International Group Inc., the world's largest insurer.

Long-term scheme

Ricardo Saadi, the federal police detective in charge of the investigation, said that in the past 18 months up to 1 billion real (SFr665 million) had been siphoned off and deposited abroad for unnamed local companies.

These firms are then said to have used the money for acquisitions in the US and China that were in turn shipped to Brazil, Saadi was quoted as saying.

The 19 people are under detention for five days while the authorities continue their investigation. They have not yet been charged.

The investigation into the banks began after seven Credit Suisse executives were detained last year in a federal money-laundering probe, codenamed "Operation Switzerland, Saadi said.

This focused on allegations that large sums of money had been illegally transferred overseas for Brazilian clients.

Saadi gave no update on the status of that investigation, but Credit Suisse spokeswoman Regula Arrigoni told news agencies that no charges had been filed against the bank or its employees in this case.

Observers say Brazil's federal police have cracked down on money laundering and other white-collar crimes over the past three years.

Last month police arrested executives of US-based technology and network company Cisco Systems. The company has denied any wrongdoing. The executives were later released.

Bankers among 20 arrested in Brazil.

By Jonathan Wheatley in S?o Paulo

updated 4:40 a.m. ET Nov. 7, 2007
Brazilian police have arrested 20 people including an employee of UBS, the Swiss bank, on suspicion of crimes including money laundering, tax evasion and illegal transfer of money overseas.
The operation provides further evidence of the willingness of Brazil's police to tackle white collar crime, often with the
co-operation of overseas forces.
Police said those arrested included three bank employees - two foreign and one Brazilian - six or seven black market currency traders, and wealthy Brazilian individuals. According to police,
the group had been illegally transferring money overseas at a rate of R$7m ($4m) a month for at least the past six months. UBS confirmed that a Swiss-based employee had been arrested in S?o Paulo and that the bank was in touch with the Brazilian authorities.
Some 280 federal agents took part in Tuesday's operation, carrying out 44 search warrants in addition to the arrests. Some R$6m in cash was apprehended, together with between $600,000
and $700,000, also in cash.
This is the second federal police operation to involve large foreign institutions in as many months. In October, police arrested 40 people including three acting senior executives and one former
president in Brazil of Cisco Systems, the US technology giant, for alleged tax fraud and other crimes involving evasion of up to R$1.5bn in import duties and other taxes.
A person familiar with the matter said it appeared the arrested UBS employee was a low-level member of staff who had no
connection to UBS's investment banking operation in Brazil, UBS Pactual.
UBS has expanded its operations in Brazil since it bought Pactual, one of a small group of aggressive and successful local investment banks, for $2.6bn last year.
Police said the foreign banks involved in the scheme were
offering services, such as banking secrecy, no longer offered by their affiliates in Brazil.
The 20 will be held in custody for five days, after
which the police may request that they be held for a further five days and following that, for an indefinite period.
Nine people arrested in last month's operation, including the former president of Cisco in Brazil, will remain in police custody.
