Everything Alex Jones Needs To Know About Robert F. Bickel Before We Call!

Robert F. Bickel is a remarkable man, a true patriot and his track record speaks for itself.  I bumped into Mr. Bickel while investigating certain activities related to a public company that has been plagued with all sorts of illegal activities that I have been investigating and documenting for quit sometime.

My investigation lead me to a certain individual whom initially, like a clam, was hesitant to share information with me, but I knew that he knew a lot more than he was willing, at that moment, to tell me.  So I sent him an email and provided him with the following link … "Freedom to Fascism in Our Financial Markets".  I waited a few days and called him back and he was then willing to speak to me, having realized that I was not one of the bad guys looking to see if he was violating his gag order (as in a temporary restraining order) to prevent him and others from warning shareholders about multiple companies’ activities all of which was in fact the truth.

That contact then lead me to Robert F. Bickel and others.  What I then discovered is that they, the bad guys, were viciously attacking Mr. Bickel from every angle because he backed away from a letter of intent to do a joint venture with a certain, very corrupt enterprise.  When he did so they threatened him with a retaliation, which they have followed through with.  Mr. Bickel and his wife, due to these circumstances, have been forced separate, as they both fear for their lives.  But I will tell you this; Mr. Bickel is not someone you threaten, based upon his extensive background in the intelligence community (as in 18 years worth).  How corrupt are their activities; RICO, fraud, extortion, corrupt judges in the pocket of various individuals of which there is much evidence. Trumped up drug charges in which they allege that Mr. Bickel has been using and dealing in Cocaine.  They have told him that if he ever comes back to a certain county that he will never leave.  A certain former district attorney and friend of Mr. Bickel told him to “Get Out Of Dodge”, until such time as a plan could be devised.  That plan is underway and will be executed and these criminals (and there are many) will be brought to justice.  Due to their blatant disregard for other human beings, these animals have placed Mr. Bickel in a temporary, uncomfortable position for the moment.  Due to the fact that he was told if he appeared in court to respond to the lawsuit that is being presided over by the corrupt judge, he would be arrested on the trumped up drug charges, thus he decided not to show up and most likely a bench warrant has been issued for his arrest for failing to appear in court with respect to an order to show cause.  The level of corruption is this situation is mind boggling, but I have seen worse and so has Mr. Bickel.  He went up against the government some time back; I think he can handle these clowns.

I am asking Alex Jones to assist us with exposing this massive corruption, which is a lot more complicated than explained herein.  An associate of Mr. Bickel is a gentleman that has appeared on the Alex Jones radio show on at least one occasion, if not more.  His name is Colonel Craig Roberts.  If Alex needs to confirm his credibility, he should contact Mr. Roberts.

Mr. Bickel needs to go public with the information (facts) related to this situation so as to expose this corruption and stop it in its tracks.

He needs your help Alex!

If Alex Jones elects not to help Robert Bickel, I will take this story to Liz Moyer at Forbes and I am certain she will take the story due to its content.

Here is Robert Bickel’s Background:

"The Oklahoma City Bombing and The Politics of Terror"

"Robert Bickel, former senior investigator and legal analyst in the Oklahoma City law offices of John Michael Johnston calls Barbouti “probably the largest single supplier of technology and contracting for the purposes of enhancing the Iraqi military’s weapons development program.”

“Bickel‘s firm has worked in conjunction with Washington, DC public interest law firm Judicial Watch, whose Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman is bringing suit because U.S. Federal agents ignored evidence indicating Iraqi involvement in the aftermath of the April 1995 bombing of the Murrah Building -- pinning the blame solely on Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Bickel is one of several who are aware of facts relating to government protection of Barbouti, which allowed the Iraqi terrorist’s chemical and nerve gas operations to continue unscathed on U.S. soil.”

“Various documents and individuals verify that Barbouti’s namesake company, Ihsan Barbouti International (IBI), was a primary force behind “covert conduits procuring weapons technology and equipment for the Iraqi military through several proceedings in the United States and Europe not long before the war,” according to Bickel.

"Robert Bickel, senior investigator for the law firm of John Michael Johnston in Oklahoma City, and the representative firm Judicial Watch in Washington, DC, said the reason for the new evidence is that only certain parts of Angeles’ statements were allowed as evidence during the McVeigh and Nichols trials."

“Lepney appears to be the guy to find. More interesting, is the fact that the prosecution was adamant in keeping the Angeles statement out of evidence. The reason for it was the absence of a warm body. That still doesn’t hold water today,” Bickel told The Times."

“Jones filed objections to the motions to allow the statement but to no avail. That is why we’re only hearing about Lepney now,” Bickel said in a telephone interview.”

"One man who uncovered the link between Systematics, Foster and covert money > movements from arms and drugs was Bob Bickel, who was an undercover Customs > investigator in the 1980s. "We found Systematics was often a conduit for the funds" in arms and drug transactions, says Bickel, now living in Texas: "They were the money changers." His story is corroborated by a former CIA employee who says it was well known within the agency in the late 1970s that Foster was involved with systematics in covert money management."

FOSTERGATE ... by James R. Norman

"The last sheet," noted Mason, "was a passport of some guy named Ibrahim." Casolaro had emphasized that Ibrahim had made a big deal of showing him (Casolaro) his "Egyptian" passport."Ibrahim" was obviously the informant whom Olga, Casolaro's housekeeper, had seen sitting in the kitchen with Danny on August 5th. Hassan Ali Ibrahim Ali, born in 1928, was later identified as the manager of Sitico, an alleged Iraqi front company for arms purchases. Casolaro had obtained these papers from Bob Bickel, who in turn obtained them from October Surprise source Richard Brenneke.]

That same day, August 5, Casolaro called Bob Bickel, the Texas oil engineer who once worked as an informant for the Customs Bureau, to discuss Mike Abbell. Bickel later confirmed that Casolaro had in fact discussed Abbell, Nichols and Rodriguez at length during that last phone conversation. And he added, "Danny confronted Robert Booth Nichols about his relationship with Mike Abbell."

"That same day, Danny called Bob Bickel to say that he was "getting close to the source, and he would soon go to Martinsburg and bring back the head of the Octopus."

"Bob Bickel's confirmation that Danny WAS trailing Mike Abbell in the last days before his death indicate that Danny may have unknowingly stepped into the largest narcotics trafficking/intelligence operation the world."

"Danny's proposed drafts and notes obtained from Western Historical Manuscript Collection at University of Missouri revealed information never published in mainstream media. Typewritten and handwritten lists of contacts included names and telephone numbers of Ted Gunderson, Raymond Lavas, Robert Nichols, Peter Zokosky, Bob Bickel, Fahim Safar, Earl Brian, Peter Dale Scott, Art Welmus, John Vanderwerker, Jack Blum, Dr. Harry Fair, Bill Hamilton, Bob Parry, Bill McCoy, and numerous others."!.htm

"579. (445) Louis Champon, interview with author. According to Champon, who is suing the federal government, Peter Kawaja, who was head of security for Champon's plant, hired Wackenhut. Kawaja was later given immunity to act as an informant. Said Robert Bickel, a Customs informant and investigator familiar with the case: "Hell, Barbouti was treated more like a damn state bird than a terrorist."

"582. (*) Yet according to Champon's former head of security Peter Kawaja, and Iraqgate investigator Robert Bickel, Champon himself isn't so innocent. "Champon had to know about the cyanide leaving the plant," said Bickel. "He was there every day, while the plant was being built and operated." Nevertheless, Champon went public, and was threatened and shut down by U.S. Customs and the I.R.S."

Naked and Confused by Liz Moyer 02.12.07

How a tiny software outfit fell victim to an illegal but unrestrained practice known as naked short-selling.

Most investors have never heard of Sedona (otcbb: SDNA.OB - news - people ) Corp., a piddling Pennsylvania outfit that sells customer relationship management software for small U.S. banks and credit unions. But to a rogue band of short-selling hedge fund managers, Sedona was prime meat.

And so from early 2000 through 2003 Sedona shares gyrated wildly on the Nasdaq, crashing from $10 to less than a buck. Helping run down the shares were the brazen trades of raiders who later were accused of an illegal--but flourishing--practice known as naked short-selling.

In two civil cases filed by the Securities & Exchange Commission and in a criminal case pursued by the U.S. Department of Justice, regulators and prosecutors have pieced together a lurid tale of greed, replete with tape-recorded conversations of traders moving in for the kill.

Regulators are investigating dozens of other examples of naked short-selling and possible insider trading. Many of these deals involve companies that raised money as Sedona did, in so-called PIPEs, or private investments in public equities (see related story). A PIPE has the supplier of capital directly or indirectly getting newly issued shares at a discount. If the discounted pipe shares are a good indicator of where the stock is headed, the higher-priced existing publicly traded shares cry out to be shorted. Depending on who's doing it and when, those short sales may be verboten.

The case involves some key names: Ladenburg Thalmann, a New York City boutique investment bank that is a prominent player in the PIPEs business; Refco Inc., the now defunct brokerage investigated by the SEC for how its traders hammered at Sedona stock; and investment adviser Rhino Advisors, which helped line up investors in the Sedona PIPEs, including hedge funds Amro International, Aspen International and the Cuttyhunk Fund. In 2003 Sedona sued these companies and other defendants in federal court in New York; the case is pending.

Sedona's complaint accuses Ladenburg of being linked to at least nine companies that accepted PIPE financing and then saw their stock prices plummet below the one-dollar mark, including Sedona, Pet Quarters, Viragen, General Magic and Alpnet. Ladenburg's outside counsel denies any wrongdoing and says there isn't any evidence to support Sedona's claims. And a federal judge in the Sedona civil suit has tossed out several of Sedona's claims against Ladenburg. Refco filed for bankruptcy in October 2005 after its former chief executive, Phillip Bennett, was accused in an unrelated case of hiding $430 million in debt from investors. Its attorneys declined comment.

Naked short-selling is a controversial tactic that was supposed to have been stamped out in the late 1980s. Hundreds of companies have collectively lost $100 billion in market value since 1997 because of naked short-selling related to PIPE deals, asserts former Under Secretary of Commerce Robert Shapiro, a paid consultant to attorneys for Sedona. Dozens of large- and midcap companies have been targets, but smaller companies are especially vulnerable.

"There is a belief that it's not that big of a deal," says Peter Chepucavage, a former SEC staffer who helped write the current rules meant to clamp down on the practice. "But where it's deliberate, it can have a terrible impact on a company."

In short-selling a trader borrows shares and then sells them, hoping to replace the borrowed stock with replacement shares purchased later at a much lower price. In naked short-selling the sale is booked, but the shares are not delivered. The buyer of those shares has, in effect, only a brokerage firm chit saying he is entitled to the shares. This buyer fully participates in any appreciation (or depreciation) in the shares, but he does not have any voting certificates to hold on to.

The naked gambit's rise is seen on the New York Stock Exchange. Each day on the Big Board some 50 million shares lack "proper settlement," meaning the trading firm fails to deliver the shares within three days, as required by SEC rules. Some volatile stocks, including Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (nyse: MSO - news - people ), Novastar (nyse: NFI - news - people ) and Krispy Kreme (nyse: KKD - news - people ), have settlement "failures" that persist for weeks or months.

Sedona was a far lesser light, but it drew a pack of short-sellers anyway. The small company in King of Prussia, Pa. recruited a new chief executive, engineer Marco Emrich, in 1999 to push into banking software. He set out to raise $12 million in financing. Within a few months he had lined up the debt, scored a distribution deal with IBM and landed 65 bank customers. "I was in heaven," Emrich says; he dreamed of $30 million in sales by 2003.

In early 2000 Sedona took its first $3 million PIPE--short-term bonds convertible into stock, courtesy of Ladenburg Thalmann. Sedona was so desperate (or naive) that it signed off on a dangerous conversion feature: The more the stock went down, the more shares the bondholder was entitled to upon converting. Soon after, trading volume in Sedona shares spiked sixteenfold, to more than 4 million a day. Were bondholders shorting the stock, hoping to profit by running the stock down? If they did any short sales before converting, they were violating the terms of the securities they bought.

Just months after the first Sedona PIPE the company's shares had fallen from $10 to $3 and lower. Emrich arranged a second $3 million PIPE in November 2000, and the shares spiraled down in a similar pattern. By the spring of 2001 the traders at Refco were in full assault mode, captured on tape-recorded phone calls that federal prosecutors later subpoenaed.

An investment adviser is heard exhorting brokers to use "unbridled levels of aggression" in shorting Sedona shares: "Clobber" the shares until they have "collapsed." "Keep on whaling away--this is very good," he says. A broker boasts to a colleague: "Want to short something illegally for 12 months? You got my number."

Clueless for the most part, Sedona executives were thunderstruck by an anonymous, 300-page dossier dumped on their doorstep in September 2001. It detailed manipulations in Sedona and some 60 other stocks. Sedona took the report to the SEC.

By late 2002 Sedona, its customers and partners wary of the travails, had shrunk from 70 employees to 15, who at one point went nine weeks without a paycheck. The SEC first targeted Rhino Advisors and its president, Thomas Badian. Rhino and Badian settled without admitting or denying guilt. Then Justice lawyers filed criminal charges against the Austrian-born Badian and his brother Andreas in December 2003. Federal prosecutors charged each with one count of securities fraud related to Sedona.

Thomas Badian had left the country by then, and has yet to return; he is believed to be living in Austria. Andreas Badian was arrested and eventually was released on $2 million bail. But in 2004 Justice dropped its case against him for undisclosed reasons. He is believed to be cooperating with the investigation, which continues against his brother Thomas. "I don't see a criminal violation here," says Steven Cohen of Cooley Godward Kronish, until recently Thomas Badian's lawyer. (Cohen was just named chief of staff for New York's new attorney general, Andrew Cuomo.)

A 2006 SEC civil suit identifies Andreas as the person on the Refco tapes who directed the aggressive short-selling of Sedona stock in 2001. He and several brokers from Refco and Pond Securities are the targets of that SEC civil investigation. The SEC has not sued Ladenburg in connection with this.

Enforcement of rules aimed at curbing naked short-selling is weak. Last year regulators fined firms a combined $5 million for violating rules in the stock-lending business, which yields $10 billion of revenue annually for Wall Street. The SEC wants to impose stricter rules on trading and is currently sifting through hundreds of comment letters on proposed amendments to short-selling regulations.

Sedona has survived, barely, by taking a $1.5 million loan and equity investment from an outside investor, a Louisiana real estate developer named David Vey. "I was a little bored," Vey says, "and this seemed like an exciting endeavor." He since has increased his stake to 43%.

"We felt abused," says Michael Mulshine, a former board member. He quit in June 2003 after getting a phone call at home on a Saturday morning from someone who warned, "People can disappear over things like this." Says Mulshine of Sedona: "We refused to walk away."

The company is running on sales of less than $2 million a year now. Emrich still toils away. "We lost four years of our lives on this," he says. "Are there companies that should not exist? Probably. But not Sedona."
