Reaping the reward

On 4 March 2007, The Sunday Times reported thus:

"Tony Blair is wooing some of America’s biggest billionaires with a Downing Street reception during his final days in power, including the tycoon who hired Bill Clinton after he left office.

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, regarded as one of London’s most influential political hostesses, has arranged the select gathering. At least seven billionaires with a combined worth of more than £25 billion are on the guest list.

Among those invited are Ronald Burkle, the financier and grocery retailer who gave Clinton a multi-million-dollar post as adviser to a private equity fund."
Burkle, one of the richest Jews in Clinton's court, is pictured below:

"The event will offer a key networking opportunity for Blair as he prepares for life after government.

Invitations have been discreetly circulated among the super-rich in New York society in recent weeks… Norman Baker, the Liberal Democrat MP, said:

‘This might be for a good cause, but selling access is ingrained into this prime minister, as is his obsession with wealth and celebrity. It’s a long way from the Red Flag'...

Others who have donated enough to attend include Len Blavatnik, the Russian tycoon... and Richard Fuld, the chief executive of the global investment bank Lehman Brothers."
Blavatnik is one of those Jewish Oligarchs who robbed the Russian people blind during Russia's particularly nasty variation on the privatisation scam. Many of these have washed up in Tony's Blair's Oligarch-friendly Britain in recent times. Roman Abramovich, Chelsea's owner, and Boris Berezovsky, whom Forbes Magazine once described as the head of the Russian Mafia, come straight to mind.

Richard Severin Fuld is also Jewish. 'The gorilla' steered Lehman Bothers deep into the business of subprime mortgages, bankrolling lenders across the country making convoluted loans to questionable borrowers. The bank's investors ended up with billions of dollars in toxic debt as a result. Wikipedia states:

"Condé Nast Portfolio ranked Fuld number one on their Worst American CEOs of All Time list, stating he was 'belligerent and unrepentant'...

'I am soft, I'm lovable but what I really want to do is reach in, rip out their heart and eat it before they die'... (Fuld is seen saying this on an internal company video)

In October 2008, Fuld was among twelve Lehman Brothers executives who received grand jury subpoenas in connection to three criminal investigations led by the United States Attorney's offices... related to the alleged securities fraud associated with the collapse of the firm."
Despite the collapse of Lehman the year after the Downing Steet do, Fuld is estimated to have walked away with a personal fortune of $500 million.

Blavatnik and Fuld are pictured below:

"Blair already knows Veronica Hearst, the widow of the publishing heir Randolph Hearst, who is likely to be among the small group at the reception. Blair was entertained by Hearst at her luxurious Palm Beach home during his Christmas break in Florida…

Rothschild’s husband, the banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, was revealed by The Sunday Times in 2002 to be bankrolling the Policy Network, the political think tank of which Peter Mandelson is honorary chairman… After the reception with the Blairs, guests will be invited to a dinner at the Rothschilds’ London home."
The Jewish House of Rothschild has bankrolled both sides of most of the major wars since the French Revolution, although the Rothchilds are thought to have subsidised the revolutionary side only in that world-changing event.

At the time this gathering was convened, Mandelson, Tony B's original guru, was batting for Britain in Europe with his Brazilian boyfriend. His dad was once the editor of The Jewish Chronicle.

Rothschild and Mandleson are pictured below:

"Those who have bought tables and are also on the Downing Street list are some of the most influential figures in American society, including Calvin Klein, the fashion designer; Leonard and Ronald Lauder, brothers who are worth £2.88 billion and who inherited the Estée Lauder cosmetics empire".
Klein and the Lauder brothers are pictured below:

"The Blairs have been increasingly keen to court America as they prepare for life after No 10. Last July Blair attended a cocktail party in San Francisco hosted by Charlotte Shultz, whose husband George was secretary of state under Ronald Reagan.

Cherie Blair is represented by the New York-based Harry Walker Agency, which arranges lecture tours for her in the US. There has been speculation the Blairs intend to buy a home in New York after quitting Downing Street, but this has been denied."
Mexico's Carlos Slim Helu, the world's richest man; Veronica Hearst, William Randolph Heart's daughter-in-law; Donald Marron, the Chairman of Lightyear Capital, a private equity investment firm; and Sid Bass, a Texas oil tycoon, were also on Chairman Blair's 'guest list.

I don't think any of these are Jewish. I wonder why they were invited?

Oh yeah.

I was forgetting.
