Baker and McKenzie Colombia:
According to their website- Baker and McKenzie has had “a presence in Colombia for over 5 decades,
offering extraordinary breadth and depth of experience in legal and commercial compliance in South America. With deep local knowledge and broad global capabilities across 67 jurisdictions, we help major Colombian organizations and inbound foreign investors seamlessly manage even the most complex local and cross-border transactions.”
Connection to Jaime Gilinski- the Colombian cartel.
An SEC document filed by Baker McKenzie in Miami Florida, on behalf of Isaac Gilinski, removed Jaime Gilinski from a private trust fund called JG private trust, located in New Zealand. The parent trust is called Pitrizza Trust.
Semana.com is located in Bogota Colombia. Here's an english translation from an article on Baker MacKenzie representing Jaime Gilinski. I can't add a link to the article because the Oakdale Leader wont allow links to be posted in blogs...I can't post the entire article over copyright problems...so I'll post some of it in quotes.."The SCANDAL OF the BANK of Credit and Commerce, BCC, was very great. And in one of the few places where it had a happy end it was in Colombia."...
"When the supplies began to buy the BCC of Colombia, six names were heard like possible new proprietors: Of Lima, the Financial Corporation of Santander, Diners, Prodeco, Stock market of Bogota and the Gilinski. The last one, the most known of all, was the one that gained the play to him to the others. Caleño of 33 years, Jaime Gilinski, settled during three weeks in the Intercontinental Hotel of London and, advised by the prestigious company/signature of lawyers Baker Mackenzie, it was able to remain with the majority property del that became Andean Bank." -Semana.com.
Not only are Baker McKenzie the family attorneys for Jaime Gilinski, it is my opinion that they are investing their own money in cartel owned banking institutions, companies and businesses as well.
In May 1994, the Gilinskis applied to the Colombian government for permission to sell just over 9% of the Banco de Colombia. In August 1994, Soros himself invested an estimated $70 to $80 million to become minority owner with a 9% stake. His man Jaime Gilinski was chairman.
Four years later, Russia's Argumenty i Fakty, one of the world's largest-circulation papers, reported (February 18, 1998) on the Gilinskis and the Colombian mafia using billions in cocaine revenue to buy up Russian resort properties, trading cocaine for automatic weapons and surface-to-air missiles that went to narcoterrorists inside Colombia.
Reporter Aleksandr Kondrashov wrote that Russian and Colombian security services were cooperating, and had given out "the valuable information on how the Colombian clan of drug baron Gilinski, is laundering dirty narco-dollars in our country, buying up resorts of Crimea and Russia through figureheads''; and that about $2 billion was estimated to be put into Russia that year, 1998, from cocaine profits.

Legally regulated (manufacture, distribution and consumption) of marijuana is coming to a state near you:
“These laws just don't make sense anymore. It’s shocking, from my perspective, the number of people that we all know who are recreational marijuana users… these are incredibly upstanding citizens: Leaders in our community, and exceptional people.”
—Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom (preparing the way for Governor Jerry Brown to initiate proceedings to legalize and regulate marijuana through the state legislature)
Maine's legislature is moving on a legalization-and-regulation bill that could bring the state $8 million a year in new revenue.
''The people are far ahead of the politicians on this. Just in the past few weeks we've seen the culture shift dramatically.''
—Rep. Diane Russell of Portland, District 120 (Occupation: Public Relations Consultant)
"Thinking we're not going to have it is unrealistic. It's just a question of how and when"
—Assemblyman Richard (Tick) Segerblom of Las Vegas, elected to the Nevada State Senate in 2012
"We have decades of evidence that says prohibition does not work and it's counterproductive. it's a matter of dollars and common sense. There's a source of revenue that's reasonable that is rational that is the right policy choice for our state. We are going to get there on legalization."
—Peter Buckley, co-chair of the Oregon state legislature's budget committee.
Rhode Island is also expected to legally regulate marijuana through the state legislature instead of a popular referendum.
''Our prohibition has failed, Legalizing and taxing it, just as we did to alcohol, is the way to do it.''
—Rep. Edith Ajello, chairs the House Committee on Judiciary and is a member of the House Oversight Committee.
In November 2012, the state's Democratic governor, Peter Shumlin, cruised to re-election while strongly backing marijuana decriminalization. And the city of Burlington passed a resolution in November 2012 calling for an end to prohibition – with 70 percent support.
It doesn't end here....Jaime Gilinski...the Colombian cartel and George Soros are building the Panama Pacifico... with illegal drug money.
Here's a few Christmas presents for you cupcake;
Hawaiian legislatures have introduced House Bill 150 to fully legalize cannabis for adults age 21 and older.
Pennsylvania is introducing a bill to legalize cannabis in that state.
Michigan is firmly in the cross-hairs.
As is Arizona with 59% of the voters in favor of legalization.
New York State
In Uruguay the government is looking to legalize cannabis.
The California Supreme Court has rejected a prosecutors request to review a ruling to allow large nonprofit dispensaries to sell medical cannabis, paving the way for more dispensaries to open.
San Diego seeing the writing on the wall has thrown in the towel and has ceased all actions against dispensaries. Their new course of action will be creating zoning rules to allow dispensaries to operate.
While we're talking about California lets not forget that if Jerry Brown decides not to run again our next likely (a shoe in for the most part) Governor favors legalization.
New research shoots down the bogus claim that cannabis use decreases IQ.
Even with the Feds stepped war on civil liberties at the expense of ignoring violent crime (http://tinyurl.com/a34sj4f) the White House is no longer cracking jokes about "pot heads" and have been forced to take us seriously.
The clock is running down on prohibition and your kind.
Colombian cartel drug money is building the Panama Pacifico.
Pay close attention to this...
In partnership with London & Regional Properties, Jaime Gilinski is developing the Panama Pacifico business and residential development in Panama City, Panama. Jaime Gilinski and his partners Ian and Richard Livingstone beat 16 other international firms in a competition to develop the project. The US $700 million project, based on the former Howard Air Force Base in Panama, includes 2,750 acres (11.1 km2) of land, which makes it one of the largest development projects in the world. Due to the site's proximity to the Panama Canal and an unused air strip, Panama Pacifico is an excellent location to build a hub for international trade, commerce, and industry.
Panama Pacifico is expected to create 20,000 jobs. It is also projected to be worth around US $10 billion when finished, which is equivalent to more than half of Panama's gross national product.
What amazes me is how antything like the cut and paste artist of this piece
of propaganda can treat it's own body like a toxic waste dump
and still feel it should be able to decree how others treat
their own bodies. Check out the video the following link takes
you to too see what I mean. It obviously has no respect for
itself yet insists on trying to impose its will on humanity.
It appears at the 19 sec mark and again at the 2:05 mark.Can
you spell H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E? obviously it can't,
but I'd be willing to bet it can spell S-U-P-E-R S-I-Z-E M-E!
