Oneida Business Committee Chair Cristina Danforth,

OBC member Brandon Lee Stevens,

and OBC Chief Counsel Jo Anne House

are trying to convince GTC that

Artley Skenandore Jr.’s ‘Nature’s Way Tissue Corp.’ fraud scheme…

and OSGC’s ‘Green Bay Renewable Energy, LLC’ fraud scheme…

have nothing to do with each other…

but the TIMELINE below proves that

Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel

is at the center of BOTH CRIMINAL FRAUD SCHEMES.

   

Brandon Stevens doubled down at the April 23, 2017 reconvened GTC Annual Meeting and said Ron Van Den Heuvel had nothing to do with Oneida Seven Generations Corp.’s and Oneida Energy Inc.’s GREEN BAY RENEWABLE ENERGY, LLC‘s PYROLYSIS ‘Waste-To-Energy’ scheme which was loaned $4 MILLION by WI Gov. Scott Walker‘s quasi-public/private Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. [WEDC] due to a total lack of due diligence on the part of WEDC’s legal counsel…

 

yet GBRE is just OSGC’s version of Ron Van Den Heuvel‘s “patented” GREEN BOX NA, LLC PYROLYSIS ‘Waste-To-Energy’ scheme… which was loaned $1.2 MILLION by WEDC due to a total lack of due diligence on the part of WEDC’s legal counsel.

WATCH RON VAN DEN HEUVEL MAKE HIS

PULP & PYROLYSIS ‘GREEN BOX NA’  PITCH

in his home town (kinda) of De Pere, WI at the April 2/5, 2014 City of De Pere Common Council Meeting asking for the City to issue Green Box NA Green Bay, LLC $125,000,000 in tax-free industrial development revenue bonds, as was also arranged for Green Box NA Michigan, LLC by Gov. Rick Snyder’s Michigan Strategic Fund, for a total of $250,000,000 [a quarter of a BILLION]:  

But there’s this…

and this…

  • September 20, 2016 Superseding Indictment [19 Counts], U.S. District Court, WI Eastern District, Case No. 16-CR-064, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA  v.  RONALD H. VAN DEN HEUVEL, KELLY YESSMAN – VAN DEN HEUVEL, and PAUL J. PIIKKILA [fmr. Horicon Bank Loan Officer and the Interim Controller of the Green Detroit Regional Center EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program that encouraged foreigners to invest in Ron Van Den Heuvel’s Green Box NA fraud scheme to obtain U.S. Visas from U.S. Customs & Immigration Services [USCIS]

Ron Van Den Heuvel and Kelly Yessman Van Den Heuvel’s trials were pushed backto October 23.

The Van Den Heuvels are accused of illegally arranging a series of loans in connection with their business, Green Box [NA].

According to the federal indictment, [Paul] Piikkila approved a series of loans for the Van Den Heuvels [from 2008 to 2009] when he was a loan officer with Appleton’s Horicon Bank location.

Bank management reportedly told Piikkila not to approve loans for the Van Den Heuvels so they were made out in other names.

Oneida Eye’s Publisher also asked OBC Treasurer Trish King at the April 23, 2017 GTC Annual Meeting reconvention why her FY2016 Report reprinted word-for-word & number-for-number OSGC’s Report from the FY2012 Annual Meeting Packet

except the FY2012 Report contained a disclaimer noting that it was based on FY2010 data:

Please note this information is from FY2010. As of the date of printing, Oneida Seven Generations [Corp.]  had not provided audited financial statements.

The FY2016 OBC Treasurer’s Report OMITTED that very important disclaimer and the OBC and Finance Department refused to simply admit that OSGC’s rosy FY2016 Report contained out-of-date data that was SEVEN YEARS OLD.

A ‘material misrepresentation’ tantamount to FRAUD.

OSGC’s Report did not include the $5-6 MILLION LOSS on GREEN BAY RENEWABLE ENERGY LLC’s Waste Pyrolysis project in Green Bay…

nor was there any mention of the $12-15 MILLION SECRET SETTLEMENT OSGC Managing Agent Peter J. King III admitted he gave – WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM GTC –  to Eric Decator’s Generation Clean Fuels/Arland Clean Fuels Plastics Pyrolysis project that GTC prohibited OSGC from conducting anywhere within the boundaries of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin Reservation.

Add the $4-5 MILLION LOSS on Nature’s Way Tissue, Corp. as reprinted in the FY2016 Report.

SO FAR, OSGC HAS LOST $21–25 MILLION 

on Ron-related Pulp & Pyrolysis ‘investments’ that we (kinda) know of.

HERE’S HOW IT WENT DOWN…

AND WHO’LL GO DOWN FOR IT.  

 









  

The ONEIDA NATION of Wisconsin has a LONG HISTORY of Following FRAUDS, IMPOSTERS, and SCOUNDRELS…

because that’s how it came to exist in the first place.

   

IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER:

1820 and 1821 : Con-artist Masonic Mohawk & Episcopal ‘Minister’ – Eleazer Williams – leads delegations of Oneidas from New York to settlements on Menominee tribal land in Wisconsin on what became the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin reservation.

Eleazer Williams claimed to be the ‘Lost Dauphin’ – the kidnapped son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette – and, thus, the rightful heir to the throne of France.

Some Oneida now believe the ‘delegation’ was actully made of members who had been shunned, disowned, expelled, and forced to leave the Oneida’s New York area in keeping with ‘The Great Law of Peace’ for their attempts to take control over the Oneida people on behalf of ‘Christian’ fraudster Eleazer Williams in an attempt to convert the Oneidas to the religion of another nation (a ‘Christian’ nation / France / Freemasonry).

77

When the chiefs of the League decide to admit a foreign nation and an adoption is made, the chiefs shall inform the adopted nation that its admission is only temporary. They shall also say to the nation that it must never try to control, to interfere with or to injure the Five Nations, nor disregard the Great Peace or any of its rules or customs. In no way shall they cause disturbance or injury. Then shall the adopted nation disregard these instructions, their adoption will be annulled and they will be expelled.

The expulsion shall be in the following manner:   The council shall appoint one of their War Chiefs to convey the message of annulment and he shall say:

“You, ………… (naming the nation), listen to me while I speak. I am here to inform you again of the will of the Five Nations Council. It was clearly made known to you at a former time. Now the chiefs of the Five Nations have decided to expel you and cast you out. We disown you now and annul your adoption. Therefore you must look for a path in which to go and lead away all your people. It was you, not we, who committed wrong and caused this sentence of annulment. So then go your way and depart from the territory of the Five Nations and away from the League.”



Ron Van Den Heuvel

1915–1916 & 1919–1920 : According to the Brown County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Department website, Henry Van Den Heuvel was Brown County Sheriff.

  

Henry’s grandson is Ronald Henry Van Den Heuvel.   

 

Ron Van Den Heuvel resides at 2303 Lost Dauphin Road, Lawrence, WI.    

       



Artley Skenandore Jr.

1957–1960 : According to the Brown County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Department website:

In 1957 with the election of Artley Skenandore [Sr.], Brown County became the first county to elect a full-blooded Indian to the position of sheriff.

Artley’s son is Artley Murray Skenandore, Jr. – former Oneida Nation of Wisconsin General Manager and a scheme partner with Ron Van Den Heuvel.

Art Skenandore Jr. is currently the Principal of Oneida Nation High School.



Sharad Tak

1974 : According to the 12/01/07 issue of The Washingtonian, ‘Living the American Dream,’ by Madhu Jain:

Many Indian-Americans came to Washington with a few dollars and big hopes. Thanks to hard work – and lucrative government contracting – some are millionaires, living large on the Potomac and McLean and making their presence felt in politics, business and the arts

Rich Indian-Americans in Washington have made their fortunes in finance, management consulting, and, increasingly, information technology and cellular and Internet services. They live in faux chateaux that do justice to a Kubla Khan fantasy. Most live in Potomac, McLean, and Bethesda.

The desis, as many Americans of Indian origin refer to themselves—desi is a word used for people from South Asia—have arrived. And many are living the American dream.

Mahinder Tak, a radiation oncologist and retired US Army colonel, is another player on Washington’s cultural scene. Her home in a wooded area in Bethesda, where she lives with her entrepreneur husband, Sharad, houses arguably the largest personal collection of modern and contemporary Indian art in the United States. Last year Art & Antiques magazine listed her among the top 100 collectors of art in the country.

Sharad Tak, the entrepreneur who lives in Bethesda, was the pioneer. In 1974, he lobbied for Indian-Americans to be considered minorities, enabling them to take advantage of incentives given to minority-owned businesses.

Tak’s company, ST Systems Corporation, provided programming and systems integration to agencies including NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration. He brought in other Indian-Americans to work with him, including Frank Islam[.]

“Sharad was my boss,” Islam says. “He inspired my entrepreneurship.” In 1991, Tak sold his company to Hughes Aircraft. A serial entrepreneur, he then ventured into television and communications and, more lately, paper mills.



Ann Van Den Heuvel Murphy

1977 to 1987 : According to LinkedIn, Ron Van Den Heuvel’s sister Ann M. Van Den Heuvel Murphy worked at family-owned VHC, Inc. for 10 years

Ann (Van Den Heuvel) Murphy began her career in her family’s business. VHC, Inc., has grown into a national company including Spirit Construction, Vos Electric, and VDH Electric. Their primary focus is in the Paper Industry, medical facilities, and Lambeau Field.

Ann M. Van Den Heuvel is married to Patrick Murphy, received an Honorary Degree from St. Norbert College in 2000, and was a Member of the Transition Team for incoming WI Gov. Scott McCallum.

According to the December 2, 2016 DECISION and ORDER signed by Chief Judge William C. Griesbach, Case No. 1:2014CV1203,
Tissue Technology LLC, Partners Concepts Development Inc, Oconto Falls Tissue Inc., and Tissue Products Technology Corp.  v.  Tak Investments LLC

BACKGROUND 

This case is the second iteration of a dispute between the Plaintiffs, a group of entities controlled by Ronald Van den Heuvel, and Tak Investments, LLC, a Delaware company. The dispute arises out of Tak’s purchase of an Oconto Falls, Wisconsin, paper mill from the Plaintiffs. In a previous action, Case No. 12-CV-1305, the Plaintiffs (also known as the OFTI Group) sought to enforce a provision in the parties’ agreement that would require the Defendant to turn over “an undiluted 27% ownership interest of the highest class in [Tak] Investments” because the Plaintiffs had deemed four promissory notes cancelled. Upon motions for summary judgment, this court found for the Defendant on the ground that one of the four notes had been assigned to another party, thus precluding the ability of the Plaintiffs to deem all four notes cancelled. As such, the Plaintiffs had not fulfilled a condition precedent to enforcing the provision of the contract upon which they relied. However, the court noted that because the assignee “could reassign the fourth note back to OFTI [i.e., the Plaintiffs] there is nothing in the record to suggest that OFTI is permanently foreclosed from cancelling all four notes and thereby fulfilling the condition precedent.”

This is exactly what has now happened. The Plaintiffs, having received an assignment of the fourth note, are now payees of all four notes and thus have the ability they lacked in the previous action, which is to “deem” (as the contract puts it) the notes to be cancelled. Accordingly, they believe they are entitled to the remedy of specific performance, that is, an order requiring Defendant Tak Investments, LLC to transfer a 27% interest in itself over to the Plaintiffs. Both sides have moved for summary judgment.

ANALYSIS

The Defendant’s first argument is very simple: it argues that it does not have the ability to convey any interest in itself to the Plaintiffs, or anyone else for that matter. Only owners can convey interests, and Tak Investments, LLC – the only defendant in this action – does not own itself. Instead, the LLC is owned by Sharad Tak and his wife [Mahinder Tak], and / or Tak Investments, Inc., none of whom are party to this action.

…[N]one of the statuatory provisions Plaintiffs cite stands for the principle that an LLC may convey something it does not possess, namely an ownership interest in itself.

This is not merely an academic problem or an elevation of form or function; it is a recognition of the realities of ownership. When part of a company – or anything else, for that matter – transfers to someone, it is also necessarily transferred from someone. The percentage of ownership must always add up to 100%. And so if the company itself purported to transfer 27% of itself to Plaintiffs, from whom would it be taking that share? And on whose authority? These questions demonstrate the essence of the problem, which may be summarized succinctly: “A corporation does not own itself.”  Hanley v. Kusper ….

[Footnote 2: It is not clear why the Plaintiffs have not sued Sharad Tak personally.] …

[Footnote 3: The payee was Tissue Products Technology Corporation, one of the Plaintiffs, but as a member of the OFTI Group it would essentially be paying itself.] …

[Footnote 4: If Tak Investments (LLC) was to be the maker of the notes, presumably it would have remained the maker even if one of the notes was assigned to a third party. The Plaintiffs do not explain why they would have assumed the role of maker simply by assigning a note to someone else. …] …

I conclude that, even if OFTI Group was obligated to pay itself principal and interest due under the four notes, its failure to do so does not excuse [Sharad] Tak and / or Tak Investments, LLC from transferring 27% of the company. The Defendant has not explained why such an obligation would prevent the OFTI Group from cancelling the notes or relieve Tak of the obligation that he transfer part of the company. Payment of principal and interest is therefore not properly considered as a “condition precedent” to any other part of the agreement.

CONCLUSION

In sum, I conclude that Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment on their claim for specific performance should be denied. This does not mean, however, that Plaintiffs are entitled to no relief at all. As noted above, the complaint also seeks “such other relief as the court deems just and proper.”  The Plaintiffs have sought, in the alternative, damages for nonpayment of the four notes, which in their calculation would amount to some $29 million. The Defendant believes such a claim would be barred by the statute of limitations, and in any event it was not pled in the complaint. It is conceivable, however, that such a claim would relate back to the filing of this action in 2014[.] Even if collection on the notes is no longer available, some other legal or equitable remedy might be appropriate in light of the unusual facts of the case. Given these circumstances, and the underdeveloped record, I am unable to conclude that judgment should be entered in the Defendant’s favor on the entire case at this time.

The Defendant’s motion for summary judgment is therefore GRANTED, to the extent I conclude that specific performance is not a viable remedy against Tak Investments, LLC. The Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED for the same reason. …

SO ORDERED this 2nd day of December, 2016.

11/1981 : According to Daniel Hopsicker:

Wally Hilliard’s links to American intelligence go back (at least) to November of 1981, when his insurance company, Wisconsin Employer’s Group, was bought out by Myron Du Bain, a World War II OSS/CIA operative and the Chairman of Fireman’s Fund of San Francisco.

Myron du Bain

We discovered the connection in a trip to Green Bay several years ago.

But only recently did we learn that Myron Du Bain’s life-long ties to the CIA included two stints at the helm of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI).

Wally Hilliard’s connection with Myron Du Bain may shed light on Hilliard’s curious metamorphosis after retiring to Florida in 1996.

Hilliard went from being a wealthy Green Bay WI insurance executive whose official corporate slogan was “Love God & Back the Pack” to fronting for clandestine operations bearing the almost unmistakable mark of the CIA.

1980’s – 1990’s : According to Law360.com, Paper mill seeks void of $17M IRS Deficiency:

Washington (March 11, 2015, 1:35 PM ET) — A Wisconsin holding company with stakes in various paper mill enterprises has told the U.S. Tax Court that the Internal Revenue Service wrongly served it with $17 million in deficiencies for the years 2004 to 2010 after wrongly disallowing deductions from bad debt held by an estranged family member.

[Van Den Heuvel] Family-owned VHC Inc. said that the company owned debt and not equity in relative Ron Van Den Heuvel‘s spinoff business, and that the IRS wrongly increased its taxable income during the period while disallowing deductions from the debt, which a series of bad deals had rendered illiquid.

VHC, which was first formed as a contracting firm by Ron’s [father] Raymond Van Den Heuvel, underwent “significant expansion” from the 1980s to the 1990s, prompting Ron to form his own company in 1997 and begin buying paper mill facilities and businesses, the petition said.

Though VHC declined Ron’s investment solicitations in his companies – saying doing so would conflict with its customer base – VHC began issuing debt in the form of promissory notes to Ron’s acquired companies for equipment and overhead costs, drawing from his experience as a sales representative for VHC along with potential funding from major banks and companies, including ENRON, which ultimately purchased a $5 million stake in the company in 1998, the petition said.

Plaintiff, GENERATION CLEAN FUELS, LLC [GCF] by and through its undersigned attorneys, sues Defendant VETERANS CAPITAL CORP. [Veterans] and alleges as follows:

PARTIES

1.  Plaintiff GCF, formerly known as Arland Clean Fuels, LLC, is a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Delaware with its principal place of business located in Cook County, Illinois.

2.  The members of GCF include four individuals and a limited liability company.

3.  Two of the individual members are residents of Cook County, Illinois [Louis Stern & Eric R. Decator].

4.  Two of the individual members are residents of Door County, Wisconsin [Michael S. Flaherty and Gaylen LaCrosse].

5.  The limited liability company member is a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Illinois with its principal place of business located in Cook County, Illinois, all of whose members and managers are residents of Cook County, Ilinois.

6.  Defendant Veterans Capital Corp. is a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Florida with, on information and belief, its principal place of business located at 1385 Areca Cove, Naples, Florida.

According to the May 28, 2014 Order by Judge John E. Steele in U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, Fort Meyers Division Case 2:14-cv-283, Generation Clean Fuels, LLC  v.  Veterans Capital Corp. [Joseph E. Wold Jr., President]:

ORDER

Subject matter jurisdiction is premised on the presence of diversity of jurisdiction between the parties. This requires complete diversity of citizenship.

Plaintiff Generation Clean Fuels, LLC identifies the members of its limited liabiiity company, however, the citizenship of the members is not provided. Plaintiff alleges that one member is a limited liability company whose members are “residents” of Illinois, and that the remaining individual members are “residents” of Illinois and Wisconsin. “In order to be a citizen of a State within the meaning of the delivery statute, a natural person must both be a citizen of the United States and be domiciled within the State.” Pleading residency is not the equivalent of pleading domicile. “A person’s domicile is the place of his true, fixed, and permanent home and principal establishment, and to which he has the intention of returning whenever he is absent therefrom.”

[Generation Clean Fuels] has failed to properly allege the citizenship of its members, and therefore no diversity of jurisdiction is alleged.

Complaint is dismissed for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction without prejudice.

Kelly Lea Yessman Van Den Heuvel – Ronald’s wife & Co-Conspirator

Starting on page 22 of Exhibit B:

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:] My wife [Kelly Yessman Van Den Heuvel] and I have no checkbooks at any bank anyplace.

[Attorney Jonathan Smies of Godfrey & Kahn, on behalf of Plaintiff Dr. Marco Araujo:] So you’re testifying you do not have a checking account and your wife does not have a checking account at any –

[RVDH:]  Or a savings account anywhere.

[G&K:] You have no – you have no bank account, and your wife has no bank account?

[RVDH:]  No bank accounts.

[G&K:]  How long has that been the case?

[RVDH:]  Five years [since 2010].

[G&K:]  So I’m curious. Why is it that you don’t have any bank accounts?

[Atty. John Petitjean of Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting, counsel for Defendant Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  He’s here to answer questions about assets and liabilities, not why.

[G&K:]  How do you go about paying your bills without a bank account?

[RVDH:]  I have other people pay them, or I pay cash.

[G&K:]  So do you maintain a store of cash somewhere in your house or –

[RVDH:]  Nope.

[G&K:]  Do you have any cash on you today?

[RVDH:]  Fifty bucks maybe. I don’t know. Thirty bucks.

[Attorney Smies:]  I thought I saw a hundred dollar bill in there.

[RVDH:]  [The] gentleman I won this from decided to laminate it, so I can’t ever cash it. It’s useless. ‘To Ron Van Den Heuvel, from Chris Hartwig [Link 1]. I lost the bet. And he laminated it so I could never cash it.

[G&K:]  Oh. So other than that –

[Atty. Petitjean:]   Wait. I have to write this down… ‘Laminate bet losses.

[G&K:]  How do you know Chris Hartwig [Link 2]?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Counsel, we’re getting far afield.

[G&K:]  Let’s go back then to this – the idea you pay cash. Are you paid wages in cash?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Where did you obtain the cash you have today in your wallet?

[RVDH:]  Somebody gave me cash.

[G&K:]  Who gives you cash?

[RVDH:]  I have seven brothers and sisters. I have a lot of friends, a lot of them.

[G&K:]  So these are birthday gifts? I don’t understand how – You solicit cash donations from friends and family?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Do you store – Do you have a safe in your house?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Do you store cash anywhere in your residence?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Do you store cash anywhere in an office you maintain?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Does your wife store cash in your house?

[RVDH:]  She has some in her purse, I’m sure, but –

[G&K:]  How often are you given cash by friends or family to meet your y y bills and other purchases that you need to make?

[RVDH:]  Weekly.

[G&K:]  And how much do you receive in cash weekly from these various individuals?

[RVDH:]  I wouldn’t understand that right now. I wouldn’t know.

[G&K:]  You don’t know how much you got last week?

[RVDH:]  No. No, I wouldn’t be able to keep track of it. Maybe $1,200.

[G&K:]  So you think maybe you received $1,200 in cash last week from – Who was that from?

[RVDH:]  Two brothers.

[G&K:]  And which of those brothers is that?

[RVDH:]  Tim [Van Den Heuvel] and Steve [Van Den Heuvel].

[G&K:]  How many brothers do you have again?

[RVDH:]  Five.

[G&K:]  Do Tim and Steve regularly give you cash?

[RVDH:]  They have several times. They can only give me $10,000 in a year. It never goes over that.

[G&K:]  You’re referring to the federal gift tax –

[RVDH:]  Right.

[G&K:]  – amount?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Bad news for your brothers.
I think it’s $13,000 now.

[RVDH:]  Is it? It doesn’t matter. I mean, everybody knows where I’m going and what I’m doing and –

[G&K:]  Where are you going, and what are you doing?

[RVDH:]  Building Green Box. We’ll close. I just don’t know when.

[G&K:]  Do your brothers expect you to repay them these cash gifts. I guess you call them gifts given the federal income tax limit.

Original Green Box NA logo – Click for the 12/17/14 archive of www.GreenBoxNA.com

[RVDH:]  They were given some shares, so they want to make sure Green Box is – for a lot of reasons. They want to clean up the environment, and they want it to do the jobs. So they have a lot of reasons to see it come through.

[G&K:]  They have interest in Green Box NA, LLC, succeeding?

[RVDH:]  No, they don’t.

[G&K:]  Which Green Box entity do they have interest in?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  Certain family members and certain trust for their kids are in E.A.R.T.H.  

____________

{ E.A.R.T.H. / EARTHEnvironmental Advanced Reclamation Technology HQ, LLC  –

–  formerly Nature’s Choice Tissue Corp.  –

renamed Reclamation Technology Systems, LLC (RTS) on 06/17/16 under management of Stephen A. Smith’s company GlenArbor Partners, Inc.}

____________

[G&K:]  I see. You have members of your family and/or their trusts that have some interest in the E.A.R.T.H. entity?

[RVDH:]   And a lot of friends.

[G&K:]  And a lot of friends?

[RVDH:]  Doc had shares in Green Box Green Bay.

[‘Doc’ is Plaintiff, MARCO ARAUJO, M.D. who unwisely ‘invested‘ in GREEN BOX NA GREEN BAY, LLC 

…and who later SUED RON VAN DEN HEUVEL & GREEN BOX NA for FRAUD with guidance & counsel from
GODFREY & KAHN
].

[G&K:]  So you think when you go to your friends and family and ask for money –

[RVDH:]  I don’t.

[G&K:]  You’ve never asked friends or family to give you cash?

[RVDH:]  I don’t.

[G&K:]  Have you ever asked your friends or family to give you cash?

[RVDH:]  No, they ask me how I’m doing, and I say, I could use a little help, but I’ll make it, and they give me a little help.

[G&K:]  Do these conversations occur on a weekly basis?

[RVDH:]  No, they stop by to see how I’m doing.

[G&K:]  But earlier you said it is weekly you get cash from friends or family members.

[RVDH:]  I have 60 different people that stop by, see how we’re doing, and put some money in my pocket.

[Atty. Petitjean:] Is 60 a hard number, or are you guessing?

[RVDH:]  More than 60.

[G&K:]  When you say –

[Atty. Petitjean:] So it’s a guess.

[RVDH:]  No, it’s not a guess. It’s more than 60.

[G&K:]  When you say “stop by,” do they come to your residence, they come to your business?

[RVDH:]  Come to the business.

[G&K:]  Do all of these people have some form of ownership interest in E.A.R.T.H. or some – one of these other entities in which you’re involved?

[RVDH:]  Most do.

[G&K:]  When you’re given cash as gifts from these individuals, is it your understanding it is cash for your personal use?

[RVDH:]  That’s why they give it to me. I have two minor children.

[G&K:]  How old are your kids?

[Atty. Petitjean:] Minor children.

[RVDH:]  My minor children are 12.

[G&K:]  Minor, okay, 12. And you have other older children?

[RVDH:]  Forty-two, 40, 38, 33, and 11 grandchildren.

[G&K:]  So the oldest you said 42? …So what day of the week typically are you getting these cash gifts from friends or family?

[RVDH:]  It’s anytime. I do a tremendous amount of services for a tremendous amount of people.

[G&K:]  What do you mean by services?

[RVDH:]  I carry license, sign reports, fix any software anybody has, do anything for anybody.

[G&K:]  So then are these payments compensation for your services?

[RVDH:]  Never asked for anything.

[G&K:]  You said you have roughly $50 with you here today, and you said you have no cash in your house. You’re not storing cash in your house; is that correct?

[RVDH:]  Nothing right now.

[G&K:]  When’s the last time you had cash in your house?

[RVDH:]  Last week.

[G&K:]  How much did you have?

[RVDH:]  I don’t know. Maybe $600 on a Monday, paid a bunch of bills. Maybe $400 on Thursday. Maybe $500 more on Saturday. It depends.

[G&K:]  How do you pay your bills in cash? Explain that process.

[RVDH:]  You go to the WPS window, and you pay a bill in cash.

[G&K:]  Fair enough for that. If you have a creditor or someone else you own money to that isn’t local, do you obtain a money order or some other form of payment with your cash?

[RVDH:]  You can go to any bank, put cash in, get a cashier’s check, and send it. Anytime, anyplace.

[G&K:]  Is that what you typically do to pay your bills that you need to send away?

[RVDH:]  I can’t put it in an account because I don’t have one. I have to order it on the account or have somebody else pay the bill on my behalf, which has happened.

[G&K:]  And who typically will pay bills on your behalf?

[RVDH:]  Various people.

[G&K:]  Can you give me a name at least?

[RVDH:]  I’ve had Mike [Byrnes] pay a WPS bill. People pay bills. Dave Williquette paid bills for me. Now, if Dave come [to] me and said, Ron, I need a general contractor’s license in Iowa, I’d sign it for Dave. Wouldn’t charge him anything, but I’d sign it for him.

[G&K:]  What authority do you have to sign a license to be a general contractor in Iowa?

[RVDH:]  I passed the test there.

[G&K:]  So you’re licensed in Iowa as –

[RVDH:]  Forty-seven states as a general contractor, HVAC contractor, electrical contractor, pipe fitter, and millwright.

[G&K:]  And you have licensing in 47 states?

[RVDH:]  I have 47 licenses that are from California to Florida to Maine to Washington. We don’t have license in every single state because we don’t work in every single state. I don’t work in Hawaii. I don’t work in Alaska. I don’t work in South Dakota. I don’t work in New Mexico.

[G&K:]  And when you say “work,” are these construction projects you’ve overseen as a general contractor?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Are you asking is Ron overseeing this individually?

[G&K:]  Yeah.

[RVDH:]  No, and you don’t have to. You just have to take out the license. A lot of people can’t pass tests. A lot of people can’t pass tests to be a doctor. They are not a doctor. They can’t practice.

[G&K:]  But you’ve passed, it sounds like, a lot of tests.

[RVDH:]  I’ve never failed one in my life.

[G&K:]  How many have you taken?

[RVDH:]  Forty-seven.

[G&K:]  Forty-seven. Is any payment required to obtain these?

[RVDH:]  Any what?

[G&K:]  Is any payment required to obtain the licenses?

[RVDH:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  And how do you pay for that?

[RVDH:]  People give me cash pay, and I pay for it in cash when I’m there. It’s not a lot of money, $200, $500.

[G&K:]  It adds up, though, if you have 47 of them.

[RVDH:]  It sure does.

[G&K:]  So if on average it’s on a weekly basis you’re receiving cash, gifts from friends and family and in the last instance I think you said it was $1,200 cash gift from your two brothers; is that fair?

[RVDH:]  Went grocery shopping. had to pay for some groceries, electric bill, and a few things got paid last month. At the start of last week I mean.

[G&K:]  Is that the typical amount you receive as a gift every week, $1,200?

[RVDH:]  Somebody might come by and Jim Rottier might come by and I don’t need anything. You don’t need anything? You’re doing alright? Yeah.

[G&K:]  It’s always – It’s your testimony it’s always these other people asking you, taking the initiative, do you need anything. It’s never you asking anyone for cash?

[RVDH:]  I’ve made 74 people in this town millionaires.

[Atty. Smies of G&K:] How did you do that?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:] Gave them shares in companies I’ve owned, Vos [Electric Inc.], Spirit [Construction Services Inc.], Best Built [Inc.]. All kinds of people owe what they have due to my hard work. They want to do something for me? I accept it.

Exhibit C:
Supplemental Examination of Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel
Before James O’Neil, Court Commissioner
May 15, 2015
10:07 a.m. to 11:04 a.m.

Page 141:

[Atty. Smies of G&K:]  Do you recall stating in a hearing just few days ago on – in the divorce case?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  Yes.

Jan Marie Summers Van Den Heuvel (Ron’s ex-wife)

[G&K:]  Do you recall stating you had plans to ensure that you would get $50,000 paid on that property by today, the 15th of May?

[Atty. Petitjean of Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting:]  Counsel, as to his assets and his liabilities, he’s already testified as to – that he owes his wife – ex-wife money. And he’s already testified that he does not have $50,000.

[G&K:]  Do you know if that’s coming from one of these friends or family members that are –

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Counsel, unless it’s a– unless you’re talking about whether he has $50,000, I’m instructing him not to answer.

[G&K:]  Mr. Van Den Heuvel, do you remember saying you made 74 millionaires in the Green Bay area?

[RVDH:]  I made what?

[G&K:]  Seventy-four millionaires in this area.

[RVDH:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  Who are some of those people?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Counsel, unless it’s – it applies to Ron’s assets or liabilities, we’re just going through the phonebook again.

[G&K:]  Well, I think his prior testimony was that it was these sorts of individuals that felt indebted to Mr. Van Den Heuvel and periodically offer him cash.

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Do any of these people owe you money?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  No.

[Godfrey & Kahn:]  Why don’t we take maybe ten minutes here for a break and regroup and see where we’re at.

06/26/95 : Zafari’s, Inc. changed Registered Agent w/ WDFI to Saboor Zafari


09/14/95 : Green Bay Air Charter, Inc. adminstratively Dissolved w/ WDFI; Registered Agent Curtis L. Hartwig; Started on 02/17/82



1996 : According to the June 25, 2015, AGREED JUDGMENTJudge Barbara B. Crabb; U.S. District Court, Western District of Wisconsin, Case No. 3:2014-cv-408, United States of America  v.  Patricia Hilliard, Wallace Hillard, Bank of America NA, Hilliard Limited Partnership, Daniel Hilliard and Andrew Hilliard as Trustees of the Wallace J. Hilliard Flint Trust, and Green Bay Air, Inc.

ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that:

1. Wallace Hilliard is indebted to the United States for the Form 1040 federal income taxes, penalties and additions to tax assessed against him for the 1996 tax year, in the aggregate amount of $2,258,402.04 as of May 29, 2015, plus interest and other additions to tax allowed by law accruing thereafter … until paid.

2. Wallace Hilliard is indebted to the United States for the Form 1040 federal income taxes, penalties and additions to tax assessed against him for the 1997 tax year, in the aggregate amount of $726,963.33 as of May 29, 2015, plus interest and other additions to tax allowed by law accruing thereafter under … until paid.

After retiring to Naples in 1996, Hilliard hobnobbed with an assortment of international ‘players” who are decidedly uncharacteristic of circles  a retired-to Florida insurance executives might normally travel in. 

A retired insurance executive from Green Bay Wisconsin, Hilliard appears to be the last person anyone would suspect of up-to-their-necks involvement in international intrigue, drug trafficking, or geo-political stratagems. 

Aviation mechanic Dave Montgomery, known as “Jet Dave” at the Naples Airport, thinks that may have been the point. Montgomery witnessed a secretive meeting between Hilliard and the founder of Waste Management, garbage king Wayne Huizenga, conducted entirely inside a helicopter on the tarmac at Naples airport.

Huizenga, who at that time was also the owner of the Miami Dolphins,  flew in on a chopper with a Dolphins helmet emblazoned on the side, Montgomery said. Hilliard went out to meet it, and got in.

Then the two men then sat inside the helicopter for almost an hour.

“And it was hot that day in Naples,” the aviation mechanic said.  “And they just sat there, in the sun.” 

Naples flight manager Danielle Clarke told us Hilliard didn’t act like someone who had retired. Naples was in the middle of the action. 9/11 hijackers Atta and Marwan flew there regularly.

“The man quickly purchased—and in very short order—a fleet of fifteen jets. He spent between $30 and $40 million on planes. He still (in 2003)  has 20 very expensive airplanes left, including Lear 35s, and Gulfstreams.”

Clarke, a British aviatrix who came to Florida after her British pilot husband died, snorts at Hilliard’s attempt at portraying a “pious man.”

“Wally came in quite a bit, seemed very compassionate, made a lot of references to God,” she said. “You’d be talking about business; then all of a sudden he’d mention the Good Lord.”

She waved a hand dismissively. “It got to be a bit much.” 

Especially in light of the fact that Hilliard’s taste in secretaries was particularly un-Godly. Summer (Hilliard’s personal secretary) was 5 foot 7, long blond hair, and a real looker, Danielle Clarke said.

“She wore exceedingly short skirts and very low cut tops,” Clarke remarked tartly.

“You struggled to find a bit of cloth on the woman!”

Also, at some point in there, 22-year old Summer Jeffries was busted for heroin at the airport.

01/11/96 : January 11, 1996 Memo from Oneida Law Office Chief Counsel Gerald L. Hill & General Counsel Francis R. Skenandore
To Tribal Chair Deborah Doxtator, Vice-Chair Loretta Metoxen, General Manager Artley Skenandore & HRD Manager Z. Ron Skenandore
re: Diane Danforth [House]

This is to advise you that [Diane Danforth House] was relieved of all duties and responsibilities as an attorney employed by the Oneida Tribe [of Indians of Wisconsin / Oneida Nation of Wisconsin] on December 7, 1995. Ms. Danforth submitted a resignation which was accepted by this office.  Ms. Danforth is not an attorney licenced to practice law in the State of Wisconsin.

Diane Danforth House fraudulently acted as the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin’s Police Department / ONWIPD’s State Licensed Attorney in various legal cases & court hearings, yet she was allowed to resign rather than being fired and held criminally liable for pretending to be an Officer of the Court.

04/07/96 : Green Bay Press-Gazette, Page 4, ‘Golf course developer keeps fighting the tribe,’ By Don Langenkamp

HOBART – If any one tract of land in Brown County embodies the friction in cultures between the Oneida Tribe and non-Indians, it is the Thornberry Creek development. The 590-acre golf course and housing development in Hobart has been a battleground for the tribe and owner Jack Schweiner since 1992. And it still is, even though the nine-hole golf course is operating and Schweiner now has all necessary permits to allow construction of homes and 18 more golf holes to begin. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued the final permit in late February. The entire development is on original reservation land. Schweiner feels the tribe has put him through the regulatory wringer for several reasons: The size of his 312 home-sites, which average about one-half acre. Tribal leaders say their objections would have been mild if the lots averaged 2’2 acres. A half-acre, they say, creates too much density. But there’s the rub. Too much density to the tribe is just right for the Brown County Planning Commission, which said the smaller lots were necessary for sewer and water service. County planners don’t want to approve sewer service to a new development unless there is enough density to make it cost-efficient, county planner Ken Jaworski said.

The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin eventually purchased Thornberry Creek, but the Oneida Business Committee lied to General Tribal Council by falsely saying the final decision would come back to GTC for approval. It never did, and the OBC has never been honest about the true cost of the golf course, nor how much has been siphoned off by Tribal officials in freebies, gimmees, and fraudulent bookkeeping.

Businessman Ronald Van Den Heuvel says he donated money through Wisconsin residents to Gov. Tommy Thompson’s campaign for several years while living in Georgia — an apparent violation of state election laws.

In a recent interview, Van Den Heuvel was questioned about $10,000 in campaign donations that he and his wife made one day before the state approved a large issue of tax-free bonds for one of his businesses. Van Den Heuvel responded by saying he had given similar amounts in the past.

When asked why reporters had not spotted those earlier donations on Thompson’s financial reports, Van Den Heuvel said, “Yeah, you may not have because when I was a Georgia resident, I gave it to people here.”

Those Wisconsin individuals, whom he did not name, then turned the money over to Thompson, he said. Van Den Heuvel, owner of VOS Electric in Green Bay and other businesses, said he moved to Wisconsin three years ago.

“I didn’t want to do it as a non-resident, which is fine,” he said. “You got to do some separate things if you’re a non-resident. I didn’t want to do that.”

Kevin Kennedy, executive director of the state Elections Board, said state law specifically bars people from laundering campaign donations or knowingly accepting laundered funds. Kennedy said it could be either a civil or criminal offense, depending on whether prosecutors believe they can prove the campaign money was given or received in intentional violation of the law.

Kevin Keane, spokesman for the governor, said the governor and his campaign were unaware of any laundered money. If Van Den Heuvel did pass money through others to Thompson, Keane said, the governor will return the money immediately once it is identified.

C. David Stellpflug, Van Den Heuvel’s lawyer, called the Journal Sentinel to say that his client was talking about giving money to political parties. But in his interview, Van Den Heuvel was critical of parties, specifically saying he did not give to the Republican National Committee.

“To me, parties — they kind of get in the way,” Van Den Heuvel said. “I like to know the person and what kind of person that person is.”

November 2, 1997

Like others before him, Ron Van Den Heuvel, a Green Bay-area entrepreneur, found the route to state largess with the help of Gov. Tommy G. Thompson.

Van Den Heuvel hit the jackpot in late September when an obscure state board awarded $24 million worth of tax-free bond financing to help him reopen an Oconto Falls tissue factory — the largest such approval this year and among the largest ever made by the state.

The award culminated nearly a year’s effort that included a formal application through the Commerce Department. But Van Den Heuvel worked informal channels to Thompson as well. And last May — the day before an initial financing award was made by the state — Van Den Heuvel and his wife donated a total of $10,000 to the governor’s campaign fund. Van Den Heuvel said he had been asked for the donation by Thompson’s fund-raiser in November 1996.

When asked by reporters last month about the campaign donations, Thompson moved quickly to return the money.

 

The subsidy will save Van Den Heuvel’s company at least $2 million in short-term financing costs, Van Den Heuvel said. The financing covers nearly half of the $52 million cost of renovating the Oconto Falls factory.

The circumstances of the case and others reviewed by the Journal Sentinel in an eight-month investigation suggest a trend in which donors and well-connected firms enjoy a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the Thompson administration.

“You don’t pay, you don’t play,” said a veteran lobbyist, speaking of state government generally, including the governor and legislators.

For the series, the Journal Sentinel interviewed more than 120 people: Government officials, lobbyists, business executives and others, many with direct experience in how insiders do business with the Thompson administration. The newspaper also examined records from eight state agencies and created or expanded computer databases of Thompson’s telephone records, state contracts, campaign donations and campaign spending.

The investigation found that campaign donations often correlate with success in winning state contracts, direct aid and other favorable treatment. Road builders, utilities, investment bankers and other groups have found their way to the inside track with Thompson’s administration.

For example, executives of four top road-building companies that have won $218 million in state contracts since mid-1995 also have donated at least $119,000 to Thompson, according to state records.

State law bans state officials from personally gaining from their positions, from swapping state aid for campaign donations. Using surrogates to make such deals also would be illegal.

Allegations of influence peddling in the Thompson administration are the subject of an ongoing state Justice Department investigation. The investigation has focused on whether state favors have been granted in exchange for political donations. That probe started early this year with utility deals but has broadened to include other areas of state government, according to persons close to the case. The department declined to comment.

A Case Study

The Oconto Falls paper mill financing provides a case study on how influence works in the Thompson administration and who can help get deals done.

Last year, Van Den Heuvel’s Re-Box Packaging Co. hired investment banker P. Nicholas Hurtgen, a former top aide to Thompson and the brother-in-law of Thompson’s paid fund-raiser, Phil Prange. Hurtgen was hired as the project’s financial adviser, but he also helped open doors for Van Den Heuvel with the governor and other administration officials.

At a face-to-face meeting with Thompson in his Capitol office last January, the governor made a point of telling Van Den Heuvel that granting state aid wasn’t his call, but he encouraged him anyway. “I told him to work with (Commerce Secretary) Bill McCoshen. I’m almost positive of it.

He also said: “I encourage people, that’s my style,” Thompson added. ” ‘Sounds good! Let’s do it! Let’s get it done!’ That’s Tommy Thompson,” he said.

Van Den Heuvel says he recalled Thompson saying to him: “I think it’s a hell of an idea.”

Van Den Heuvel said that he and his wife, Jan, donated a total of $10,000 to the governor’s campaign account earlier this year — the checks were delivered May 15, one day before Re-Box Packaging won state approval for $9 million in tax-free bonds. That approval was intended for financing to build a De Pere factory for Re-Box.

Van Den Heuvel and two partners also each gave $500 to the governor three days before the state’s five-member Volume Cap Allocation Council voted on the financial aid. Three other partners gave a total of $2,100 between late April and June.

An hour after the newspaper asked Thompson about the donations, Thompson’s press secretary, Kevin Keane, said the Van Den Heuvels’ donations would be returned because “we are just not comfortable about” the timing of the cash gifts. Van Den Heuvel later confirmed that $10,000 of his donations were returned. Keane said the other donations might be returned.

Before using the $9 million in state financing, Van Den Heuvel decided to drop his aid application for the De Pere plant and apply for even more aid for PCDI Oconto Falls Tissue Inc., the tissue-mill project. The council that awarded the earlier sum readily agreed to authorize the $24 million in financing aid.

Commerce Department staffers who reviewed the Oconto proposal, however, declined to make any recommendation on the request, also noting the large sum, if approved, would “significantly impact” the amount of tax-free bonding authority available for other projects. Numerous other projects proposed by other firms were not funded by the council.

Van Den Heuvel made the project switch, he said, because the Oconto Falls mill offered the opportunity to get government financing aid for a much larger portion of that project’s overall costs than the $9 million financing offered him for the De Pere project.

Van Den Heuvel, Thompson and other administration officials say the project was approved on its merits and there was no link between the campaign cash and the state aid.

“None whatsoever,” Thompson said. “Absolutely none.”

The donations “wouldn’t have anything to do with” the state aid, Van Den Heuvel said.

Officials said the Oconto Falls mill will provide 160 jobs in an area hit hard by this year’s plant closure. The $24 million in financing aid, while large, was far less than the total of $70 million that Van Den Heuvel originally requested for the De Pere Re-Box project, state officials noted.

Commerce Secretary Bill McCoshen also stressed that the aid, while allocated by the state, actually comes from the federal government, and no state tax dollars are involved.

Under the financing plan, company executives also could pay themselves and other company employees bonuses and pay shareholders dividends with the tax-free bonds, Van Den Heuvel said. They would not have been able to do that with taxable bonds.

Rick Snyder’s Michigan Strategic Fund, for a total of $250,000,000 [a quarter of a Billion]

_____________________________

The method for getting campaign money from firms interested in state help includes pleas made at opportune times.

In the Oconto Falls case, fund-raiser Prange called on Van Den Heuvel last November for a donation, a few months after Van Den Heuvel’s request for state aid had first been broached, according to Van Den Heuvel and state Commerce Department records. Prange was aware of Van Den Heuvel’s pending request for state financing aid when he asked for a donation, Van Den Heuvel said. Prange had approached him for donations in previous years.

“I made that $10,000 commitment to him in November (of 1996), OK?” said Van Den Heuvel. He claimed he’d been a longtime large donor to Thompson’s campaign, but the governor’s campaign finance records show just two other, smaller donations from Van Den Heuvel before the big donations were made last May.

Thompson insisted he never personally solicits donations and knows few details of how his campaign operation functions, despite his aggressive hands-on approach to campaigning and governing. But interviews with Thompson insiders, phone records and his own campaign records suggest the governor has taken a much more active role in his campaign money-raising machine.

[L]obbyists for major firms and interest groups who do business with the state, and business executives interviewed by the newspaper, said the fund-raising events are sold as prime opportunities to bend the governor’s ear on state issues — often worth millions to major players in issues ranging from utility regulation to Indian gaming. The fund-raisers often include discussion of those issues.

A second lobbyist said Thompson’s fund-raising machine “systematically and methodically” milked firms with state business for donations. “Everybody understands if you go and ask the government to do something, you are going to have to make contributions.”

Both lobbyists asked not to be named, saying they feared retribution for speaking out.

State phone records also showed top aides to the governor, with whom he regularly confers, made numerous calls to the Thompson campaign office and GOP fund-raisers.

Klauser, in his last three months as Thompson’s top aide, called Prange 19 times, his phone records show. And Commerce Secretary McCoshen, who oversees a wide range of state subsidy programs for businesses, including the Oconto Falls financing, called Prange and the governor’s campaign office 21 times since January 1995.

State phone records show a series of calls during the period Van Den Heuvel was negotiating for his state financing aid, including a string of calls linking Thompson, his campaign, top state officials and Hurtgen, Van Den Heuvel’s project manager.

Thompson acknowledged that he might have talked to Hurtgen, his former aide, about Van Den Heuvel’s request for state financing aid.

“Possibly could have,” Thompson said. “I don’t know.”

Hurtgen declined to comment. Matthews and McCoshen said their calls to Hurtgen were not related to the Van Den Heuvel project.

“I’ve been a supporter of Gov. Thompson for a long time. I happen to think he’s the best governor,” Van Den Heuvel said. 

Green Bay-area entrepreneur Ron Van Den Heuvel and his [ex-]wife [Jan Marie Summers Van Den Heuvel] donated a total of $10,000 to Thompson’s campaign fund last May a day before Van Den Heuvel won state approval for $9 million in tax-free bonds to build a De Pere factory.

Van Den Heuvel and two partners also each gave $500 to the governor three days before the state’s five-member Volume Cap Allocation Council voted on the financial aid.

Three other partners gave a total of $2,100 between late April and June.

An hour after the newspaper asked Thompson about the donations, Thompson’s press secretary, Kevin Keane, said the Van Den Heuvels’ donations would be returned because “we are just not comfortable about” the timing of the cash gifts.

Van Den Heuvel later told the paper that $10,000 of his donations were returned.

A direct link between campaign contributions and favoritism is the Holy Grail of campaign finance reporting.

In the 1997 series “Money and Influence,” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters Steve Schultze and Daniel Bice connected campaign contributions to preferential treatment by Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson.

The two reporters examined records from eight state agencies, state contracts, campaign contributions and expenditures, and Thompson’s phone records. The eight-month investigation revealed a startling correlation between those who gave money to Thompson’s campaign and those who got lucrative state contracts.

..,Schultze and Bice found that Ron Van Den Heuvel, a Wisconsin businessman, donated $10,000 to Thompson’s campaign fund the day before a state agency awarded him $24 million in tax-free bond financing to build a paper-manufacturing plant. Van Den Heuvel says a Thompson fund raiser asked him for the donation. The newspaper’s inquiry forced Thompson to return the contribution.

Schultze and Bice say the Van Den Heuvel affair was not an isolated incident. “The [Van Den Heuvel] case and others reviewed by The Journal Sentinel in an eight-month investigation suggest a trend in which donors and well-connected firms enjoy a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the Thompson administration,” they wrote.

You can investigate that claim for yourself by downloading current Wisconsin campaign finance data from the CFIC or by searching the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign Web site at http://www.wisdc.org/.

Another strength of using campaign finance data is the ability to show how big money flows around the sometimes useless legal breakwaters that are meant to stem the tide.

 01/1999 : According to the August 8, 2005 Decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit – 403 F.3d 1050 [modified],  Livid Holdings Ltd.  v.  Salomon Smith Barney, Inc.; Smith Barney Holdings Inc., BNY Clearing Servics LLC, successor in interest to Schroders & Co, Inc.; Andrew Van Der Vord; Robert Chamine; Michael Dura; Robert Hamecs; William Hurst; Leon Kalvaria; Ilan Kraufthal; John O’Donogue; Herc Segalas, Jed Sherwindt; James Stone; Fredering Talyor; Samuel Weinhoff:

Livid’s claims arise out of its December 1999 purchase of $10 million worth of shares in Purely Cotton, Inc. (“PCI”) stock. In January 1999, Schroders helped PCI arrange a private placement of $25 million worth of its stock. For this purpose, Schroders created a Confidential Offering Memorandum (“the Memorandum”), which outlined PCI’s operations, business plan, and financial position. After the distribution of the Memorandum to potential investors, Livid alleges that UAE Investments, Ltd. (“UAE”), a Gibralter-based company, agreed to purchase over 98% of the offering. The individual Defendants, who were directors and/or officers of Schroders, agreed to purchase the remaining stock. Livid alleges that there was never a contractual document requiring UAE to pay more than $2 million of the $25 million purchase price.

In September 1999, PCI asked Schroders for additional copies of the Memorandum in order to solicit additional investors. Livid alleges that before providing PCI with these extra copies, Defendant Van der Vord, the managing director at Schroders in charge of the offering, and his team amended the Memorandum by attaching the following notice:

This Memorandum was written in January 1999 and represents the original Offering Memorandum distributed to potential investors in the Company’s $25 million private equity fund raising. Subsequent to the writing and distribution of this document the Company may have undergone various changes including but not limited to management changes, ownership changes and business strategy changes. This document has not been updated or amended to reflect any events that have occurred since January 1999. As such, it does not reflect the fact that the above-mentioned $25 million private equity fund raising has been completed.

Livid’s claims against Defendants arise out of the last sentence of this notice. This sentence, Livid contends, implies that the proceeds of the initial $25 million sale had been received by PCI, but that the Memorandum had not yet been updated to reflect this additional capital. At the time this notice was written, however, UAE and the Defendants had actually paid less than $2 million to PCI. Livid alleges that additional payments on UAE’s balance were conditional on UAE’s approval of a PCI business plan and a new chief executive officer — meaning that UAE was not actually bound to pay for the PCI stock. Livid further alleges that all of the named Defendants bought stock through this initial offering on the same terms as UAE, and therefore knew that the sale was incomplete when the notice was attached to the Memorandum for the express purpose of attracting additional investors. Defendants do not contest that they had such knowledge. In addition, Livid alleges that Defendants had a motive to deceive potential investors because PCI had not yet paid Schroders for the services it provided in connection with the first fund-raising campaign. In essence, Livid contends that Defendants had a motive to try to bring additional capital into PCI — to increase the likelihood that it would be paid for past services rendered.

The district court dismissed each of Livid’s claims with prejudice. With respect to the federal claim, the district court found that Livid failed to plead adequately that the notice statement was a material misrepresentation, upon which it reasonably relied in purchasing PCI stock. In addition, the district court found that Livid’s complaint did not satisfy the heightened pleading standards for scienter under the 1995 Private Securities Litigation Reform Act (“PSLRA”).  …

The district court based its dismissal of Livid’s state tort claims for fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation on its holding that Livid’s reliance on the notice’s statements was unreasonable. Under either tort claim, Washington law requires plaintiffs to show reasonable reliance. ESCA Corp. v. KPMG Peat Marwick, 135 Wash. 2d 820, 959 P.2d 651, 654 (1998) (negligent misrepresentation); Haberman, 744 P.2d at 1070 (fraudulent misrepresentation). Here again, because we find that the district court erred in determining, as a matter of law, that Livid failed to allege adequately reasonable reliance on the statements in the notice as to Livid’s federal securities claim, we must similarly reverse the district court’s decision as to Livid’s state tort claims.

CONCLUSION

Plaintiff’s complaint states a claim for federal securities fraud, state securities fraud, and state tort violations — even under the heightened pleading standards of the PSLRA. The case is remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

REVERSED AND REMANDED.

SUMMER 1999 : According to Wikipedia’s ‘Huffman Aviation’ page:

Huffman Aviation was purchased by Dutchman Rudi Dekkers in 1999. At the time of purchase, the school had a fleet of 12 small aircraft. Huffman offered private pilot, instrument rating, Commercial pilot, Multi-Engine Ratings, and flight instructor training, but did not offer training on larger, jet aircraft.

More than 80% of the school’s students were foreign nationals, following a marketing campaign designed to attract overseas students It also suffered from a poor local reputation, as the Venice Gondolier ran continuing stories about the flight school’s troubles.

According to Daniel Hopsicker:

Almost immediately after its purchase in the summer of 1999 by Wallace J. Hilliard and Rudi Dekkers, the aviation facility became the center of a series of financial scams that included Ponzi schemes, pension fraud, international stock swindles, and fraudulent bankruptcies which have altogether looted more than $1 billion from the American economy.

Huffman Aviation, the flight training facility which housed both of the terrorist pilots who crashed passenger jets into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, has been operating as a continuing criminal enterprise, as defined by the Federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) Act.

04/04/00 : William C. Bain gave $250 contribution to Scott McCallum; Employer VOS Electric


04/27/00 : Steven C. Peters gave $100 contribution to Scott McCallum; No Employer Identified

Steven Peters was an employee of Ron Van Den Heuvel at Oconto Falls Tissue Inc., became Registered Agent of Recovering Aqua Resources Technologies, Inc. [RARTI] on 02/07/01, and was also a Partner with Ron, Artley Skenandore Jr., and OSGC in Nature’s Way Tissue Corp. on 12/26/03.

Steven C. Peters was also – like William C. ‘Bill’ Bain – a ‘straw borrower’ in Ron & Kelly Van Den Heuvel’s bank fraud scheme, to which Co-Conspirator Paul Piikkila has already pled guilty.

Mr. Skenandore had no expertise in the paper industry. Nevertheless, he was made president.

Mr. Skenandore was the Chief Executive Officer of Nature’s Way [Tissue Corp]. He was listed on the signature card of the checking accounts of Nature’s Way and signed all of the checks. He agreed with Mr. Van Den Heuvel and Mr. Peters to pool all of the funds coming in for use at whatever entity needed it most. He made the recommendations with the controller on what and whom to pay. He admitted that he allowed the monies to be pooled and used for other purposes than paying the withholding taxes.

First, [Artley Skenandore Jr.] was the President of Nature’s Way [Tissue Corp]. We have previously stated that a President necessarily has the requisite authority, and nothing in this case showed otherwise, the contractual arrangement with Mr. Van Den Heuvel notwithstanding.

Second, as the quote from the accountant in the previous section shows, Mr. Peters and Mr. Skenandore had numerous meetings where the two decided to pay other obligations, and Mr. Skenandore admitted on the stand to ‘carrying over’ the withholding tax liability. Mr. Skenandore’s defense was that he relied on the parent company for expertise in the paper business, but that is unconvincing and does not excuse paying other creditors first.

The testimony was that Nature’s Way [Tissue Corp.] had money coming in from the parent company, just not enough to pay all of the creditors. Clearly, he and Mr. Peters determined which bills to pay out of the money that was coming in.

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Department’s assessment toMr. Skenandore is affirmed [regarding withholding tax periods beginning December 1, 2006, and ending March 31, 2009].

06/03/00 : Re-Box Packaging, Inc. reverts name to Re-Box Paper, Inc. w/WDFI; later renamed Eco Fiber, Inc. on 03/28/05 [different than EcoFibre, Inc. but Ron Van Den Heuvel was the Registered Agent for both]


07/03/00 : According to Wikipedia’s ‘Huffman Aviation’ page:     

The business gained further notoriety after the September 11th attacks, when it was revealed that Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi had both attended the school to learn how to fly small aircraft.

On July 3, 2000, both applied to the school; Atta claimed to be of royal Saudi descent and presented Marwan as his bodyguard.

In August, the school filed the necessary INS [Immigration & Naturalization Services] paperwork in order to allow both pilots to switch from ‘tourist’ Visas, to ‘student’, in order to allow them to enroll in the school’s piloting program. While they were allowed to apply, final verification did not reach the school until March 11, 2002, 6 months after both pilots had been killed in the attacks.

For a short while, during their time at the school, both Marwan and Atta lived with a company employee named Charlie Voss for a few days, paying him about $250 cash. After a week, Voss reportedly kicked them out of his house for insulting his wife.


07/25/00 : According to Daniel Hopsicker:

Compounding the sense of mystery and cover-up surrounding the terrorists’ stay in Venice is another unexplained fact:

Less than three weeks after Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi began flying lessons on July 3, 2000 at Huffman Aviation in Venice FL,  Huffman owner Wally Hilliard‘s Learjet was swarmed by DEA agents brandishing submachine guns after it landed, on July 25, at Orlando Executive Airport.

The Lear, agents discovered, was carrying 43 lbs. of heroin, an amount known in the trade as “heavy weight.”

The Orlando Sentinel called it “the largest seizure of heroin in Central Florida history.” 

Today we’re placing online, and in perpetuity,  the DEA affidavit, and the forfeiture hearing regarding Hilliard’s Learjet.

In a virtually unprecedented action, the DEA argued that Hilliard was not merely an innocent aircraft owner. He hadn’t just been victimized and remained unaware while crafty drug traffickers chartered his plane.

Nuh-uh.

Hilliard lost the plane.

•  FINALLY! Rudi Dekkers behind bars for Drug Trafficking

[Rudi] Dekkers first came to the attention of U.S. law enforcement in 1996, according to sources who worked with him at the Naples Airport. He was the subject of a multi-agency Federal task force, investigating allegations, and numerous sources said they were much more than mere allegations, that Dekkers was exporting state-of-the-art computer memory chips out of the U.S. illegally.

However, no charges were ever filed. In the case of someone who’s been the subject of a multiple agency task force, this is highly unusual. An executive who worked at Naples Airport, directly under Wally Hilliard, said, “You don’t get the FBI, US Customs, and the DEA, on your ass all at once for singing too loud in church.”

The suspicion among aviation observers in SW Florida was, and remains, that Dekkers was offered—and accepted—some kind of deal.  Last week, in Houston, for an as-yet unknown reason Rudi Dekkers finally ran out of “get out of jail free” cards.

It had been a long run.

In 1976 Senator Frank Church’s Committee grilled CIA General Counsel Lawrence Houston about the Agency’s questionable and illegal operation of proprietary airlines.  Church was clear that he wanted the CIA to divest itself of what had grown into the largest airline in the world.

The CIA has never been the kind of Agency to take the heat if there’s anyone else around to throw under the bus. Lawrence Houston offered that the CIA had routinely used the U.S. Forest Service to provide cover for its covert activities. And, he said…there was more.

The U.S. Forest Service had been successfully infiltrated by CIA, confessed Houston. The CIA even shared an address with the Forest Service’s Air Research and Development unit in Alexandria, VA. He allowed that perhaps a re-think was in order. Mostly of the Forest Service.

Back then, it was open season on the CIA. Over little nit-picky things like brainwashing, or drugging American citizens without their knowledge, or assassination.

But the Agency had anticipated a move to clip its wings.  It had quickly given away its clandestinely-owned air carriers, folding them into one of its lesser-known proprietary airlines, Evergreen International. Then it very publicly freed Evergreen from its state of indentured servitude, and set it up at Marana Air Base in Arizona, which the CIA owned.

It had already sheep-dipped a new fleet of planes through the U.S. Forest Service.  One of those planes— 40 years later—has just been seized at an airport in Australia.

Something about 35 kilos of heroin.

Evergreen International Aviation, Inc. was a global aviation services company based in McMinnville, Oregon, United States. Founded in 1960, Evergreen was primarily known for commercial helicopter operations in agricultural and forestry applications. The airline division, Evergreen International Airlines, operated all-cargo Boeing 747 freighters. Evergreen ceased all aviation-related operations in 2013 due to financial challenges.

Evergreen was part of the US Civil Reserve Air Fleet and the International Peace Operations Association. It was known to do work for the United States federal government, including fire suppression for the U.S. Forest Service, troop transportation in the Gulf War of 1991, as well as helicopter transportation for oil rig firefighters at the end of hostilities. The company provided aviation services for the Central Intelligence Agency as well, including transporting the Shah of Iran from Panama to the United States in 1980.[4] 

On November 8, 2013 Evergreen International Airlines, a subsidiary of Evergreen International Aviation, announced via a voicemail to their employees that all operations would cease effective November 29, 2013.[9]

In 2014, Evergreen declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy[10][11] and began a liquidation of assets, including its headquarters campus in McMinnville.[12]

Evergreen International Airlines was a cargo airline based in McMinnville, Oregon, United States. It operated contract freight services, offering charters and scheduled flights, as well as wet lease services. It operated services for the U.S. military and the United States Postal Service, as well as ad hoc charter flights. Its crew base was at John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York.

Evergreen also maintained a large aircraft maintenance and storage facility at the Pinal Air Park in Marana, Arizona that the company acquired from the CIA‘s Air America fleet.

The airline was established by Delford Smith (founder and owner) and began operations in 1960 as Evergreen Helicopters. It acquired the operating certificate of Johnson Flying Service and merged it with Intermountain Airlines from Pacific Corporation (a CIA front company) in 1975 to form Evergreen International Airlines. The holding company, Evergreen International Aviation, formed in 1979, wholly owns the airline.

On December 31, 2013, Evergreen International Airlines filled a Chapter 7 petition in federal bankruptcy court in Delaware. The bankruptcy filing lists seven entities as submitting the Chapter 7 petition: Evergreen Aviation Ground Logistics Enterprise, Evergreen Defense and Security Services, Evergreen International Airlines, Evergreen International Aviation, Evergreen Systems Logistics, Evergreen Trade, and Supertanker Services.[10]

According to Daniel Hopsicker:

The CIA’s “former” airbase at Marana, Arizona holds the key to the mystery of how the Agency hides, or “sheep-dips,” its planes. When the base was privatized, top CIA aviation officers, including the Agency’s legendary George Doole, went to work there for Evergreen International.

The CIA’s far-flung aviation operations, which span the globe, continue to be run from there. Thousands of airplanes sit parked, waiting to be reactivated. Inside the largest hanger hangs a plaque dedicated to George Doole, who for decades was in charge of CIA’s aviation activities worldwide.

Doole created and ran the worlds’ largest airline. They called it “Spook Air.” 

He was so adept at the sleight of hand necessary to shuffle the ‘paper’ ownership of the CIA’s fleet of planes back and forth between a bewildering number of proprietary airlines that the true size of the CIA’s airline—then and now—will never be known.

When Richard Nixon appointed Richard Helms CIA Director in the early 70’s, Helms tasked a staffer with adding up and accounting for all the planes in Doole’s domain. After three months on the project the staffer gave up in exasperation. 

The problem, he explained to Helms, was the speed and alacrity with which Doole changed airplane markings and tail numbers, and leased planes back and forth between various shell corporations.

Then came Watergate. In the aftermath of revelations about the CIA’s assassination and mind control programs, the Agency was under strong pressure to sell off the front companies used to hide their fleet of planes.

The subsequent privatization of government assets into private hands had the same result as it did in Russia 15 years later. The aviation wing of crony capitalism was born.

Soon retired Generals, like Richard Secord, became instant corporate CEO’s, running aircraft charter and aviation companies that continued doing the CIA’s bidding. 

Today the tradition continues, with companies like World Jet and Donna Blue Aircraft replacing more familiar names like Air America, Southern Air, and Evergreen Airlines.

According to FAA registration records, this is where the Gulfstream’s sister airplane,  SkyWay’s DC-9 (N900SA)— busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine in the Yucatan—came from. The plane was brought out of mothballs in 2002 to be put to work in the war on terror.

It  was also from here, in the late 80’s—while SkyWay Chairman Glenn Kovar still worked for the U.S. Forest Service—that that innocuous Federal Agency—the home of Smokey the Bear!— was “gifted” with dozens of  “surplus” military cargo airplanes. 

The planes, to be used to fight fires in U.S. national parks,  began turning up  being used as cargo workhorses for Mexican and South American drug cartels, including, memorably, one C-130 that was found sitting on a runway at Mexico City’s international airport carrying a stunning billion dollars worth of cocaine.

And this was in the late 1980’s, when a billion dollars worth of cocaine was still worth…well, a billion dollars

According to Wayne Madsen:

Those who murdered 9/11 author and former Iran-contra CIA contract pilot Phillip Marshall in the last days of January this year, were hoping to block Marshall’s investigation into the role that the Pinal Air Park / Marana Airfield outside of Tucson, Arizona played in the 9/11 attack. It is noteworthy that Pinal is the home to America’s “boneyard” of retired civilian aircraft, including Boeing passenger aircraft. Nearby Davis- Monthan Air Force Base is the home to the boneyard of retired military aircraft. In addition, the CIA and US Special Forces maintain operations at Pinal, the CIA through its contractor, Evergreen International.

The senior U.S. Judge for the Middle District of Alabama, Mark Fuller, the judge who sent former Alabama Democratic Governor Don Siegelman to prison on trumped up charges, is a major player in the 9/11 operation owing to his former ownership of Doss Aviation, the U.S. Air Force contractor that trained Egyptian Air Force Lt. Col. Mohammed Atta at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama and who also had contracts to train Saudi pilots.

03/2001: According to the May 6, 2008 Court of Appeals of Wisconsin Published Decision, Case No. 08WIAPP85Herbert J. Cuene, Jr.  v.  Wallace J. Hilliard

¶2  [Wallace J. ‘Wally’] Hilliard formed Florida Air Holdings, Inc., in March 2001, envisioning it as primarily a commuter airline operating in Florida. To operate as a commuter airline, the company needed a “Part 121” operating certificate from the United States Department of Transportation. To obtain the Part 121 certificate, Florida Air purchased the bankrupt Sunrise Airlines, Inc., to operate as a Florida Air subsidiary. Hilliard intended to obtain Florida Air’s Part 121 certificate by renewing Sunrise’s suspended certificate.

One such credit line came shortly before 2000, when VHC issued a line of credit to Ron’s cotton fiber plant for the installation of a key machine. It did so at the request of United Arab Emirates Investment Ltd., [UAEI] which had made an offer on the plant that would have far exceeded the amount of the company’s debt for the machine. However, UAEI withdrew from the deal at the last minute after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, saying the status of a Middle Eastern company in the U.S. at the time was too risky.

Around the same time, Enron, one of the debtor’s key backers, filed for bankruptcy.

“With the collapse of both deals, lenders began contacting petitioner about accelerating repayment of the loans to the debtor’s companies and calling in the guarantees of petitioner,” VHC said. VHC gave the company even more money following the two collapses to help the debtor get back on its feet, according to the petition.

2002 : According to the Denver Post:

[Atty. Carl Artman] was listed in 2002 as general counsel and vice president of business development at CorAccess Systems LLC in Denver[, COLORADO]. [Pres. George W.] Bush named Artman to the President’s Board of Advisors on Tribal Colleges and Universities in 2002.

  

According to Daniel Hopsicker:

In the seven years since 9/11 Wally Hilliard has remained embroiled in controversy.

For example, in Jerry Falwell’s Lynchburg, VA in 2002 a previously-unknown company housed inside Hilliard’s Huffman Aviation in Venice managed to win a large government contract at Lynchburg’s Airport, under circumstances that left aviation observers there feeling queasy.  

Several years earlier Hilliard had “loaned” Jerry Falwell $1 million to bailout his failing religious enterprise, a loan the televangelist never repaid.

When it won the big contract, Britannia had two employees and a bank balance of $500. Their main competitor had $45 million. In cash.

The OBC voted to rescind OBC’s 03/29/00 action that removed Oneida Nation of Wisconsin enrollment as a requirement for the Oneida Law Office Chief Counsel position.

The Oneida Law Office Chief Counsel at that time was Rory Dilweg, son of then Brown Co. Judge Vivi Dilweg.


02/08/02 : According to the May 6, 2008 Court of Appeals of Wisconsin Published Decision, Case No. 08WIAPP85Herbert J. Cuene, Jr.  v.  Wallace J. Hilliard

¶3  The [U.S.] Department of Transportation tentatively approved Sunrise [Airline]’s Part 121 renewal on February 8, 2002, and issued an order to show cause. The renewal would be finalized unless, within fourteen days of the order, someone came forward with cause for the Department to delay or deny approval.

¶4  [Wally] Hilliard also owned a company called Plane 1 Leasing Co., Inc., which owned and leased planes to other airlines. The Federal Aviation Administration had pending sanctions against Plane 1 for allegedly flying without proper authorization and informed the Department of the pending sanctions in response to the show cause order. On February 13, 2002, the Department declined to finalize Sunrise’s Part 121 certificate and requested an explanation from Hilliard about the FAA’s pending sanctions.

[Footnote: Hilliard initially disputed the allegations, asserting the plane lessees had the appropriate certificates, but later stipulated to $285,000 in sanctions after the United States attorney filed suit in April 2004.]

¶5  Simultaneously, M&I Bank underwrote a $3.64 million loan to Florida Air for six airplanes intended to be the Florida Air fleet. M&I had liens on the planes and a personal guarantee from Hilliard securing the loan. Plane 1 and Huffman Aviation – another of Hilliard’s companies – also had loans from M&I totaling $4 million.

¶6  No payments were made on the principal of Florida Air’s loan and, by December 2001, the loan was in default. An M&I representative informed Hilliard that the bank intended to terminate its relationship with him and his companies. By March 2002, all three companies were in default; Florida Air still owed M&I $3.64 million.
