Lord James of Blackheath, whistleblower… or water muddier? or dead?

There’s been a lot of excitement, confusion and intrigue on the interwebs in the last few weeks, following this fun (by which I mean bizarre) video from Lord James “leave them confused” Blackheath.

Last year he had this little gem on the subject of “Foundation X”

Then two weeks ago, and again out of the blue, he’s decided to blow the whistle on a $15 TRILLION DOLLAR fraud.

Anyway, that’s all well and good and I don’t want to get into the reality of either statement. What I do want to talk about here is about Lord Blackheath himself and what must be motivating him.

It has to be said that Lord Blackheath must have some cojones, because if it’s true he’s certainly a candidate for an unfortunate heart attack and if it’s totally false, he really doesn’t mind making a total arse of himself in the House of Lords.

Part of my motivation for looking into Lord Blackheath was to confirm of deny the rumor that he is in fact dead. So I looked on the UK Parliament website and so far… he’s a breather, in the fact that he’s not listed in the deceased Lords section. What is interesting is that his very last speech in the house of Lords appears to be the “EU Recent Developments – $15 trillion fraud” speech, made on the 16th February 2012 at 5.20pm.

But here’s something that perhaps Benjamin Fulford might not have noticed, or gave no merit to. Here’s a list of Lord Blackheath’s interests.

Directorships

  • Northern Flexihire and Rental Solutions Ltd (vehicle hire)

Non-financial interests (a)

  • Chairman, Henleys Group plc
  • Chairman, Vidapulse Limited
  • Chairman, Demontford Holdings
  • Consultant, Cerberus Capital Management LP (New York)

Non-financial interests (e)

  • David James Music Charitable Trust
  • Chairman, Amberley Football Club

Cerberus Capital Managment, and who are they then?

Well, that’s one of the world’s largest private equity funds, ran by Steve Feinberg. It’s also the 11th biggest contractor to the US Federal Government, providing private equity management for a fee of $4,7 billion (2010).

It’s also at the center of an emerging Pentagon and CIA contracting scandal that has the attention of three Congressional Committees. It’s all covered here and here.

I’m just scratching the surface here. But he’s certainly an interesting character with a lot of interesting associations. Which makes his dramatic speeches even more strange to watch. I can understand the second video, it could be an attempt to de-stable the market for hedge fund benefits. But the first one has me stumped.

  2. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

    Thank you!

    • To be honest, I just hit the keyboard and see what comes out. Then re-work it until it forms a coherent structure. But playing around with new ideas is as much fun and often gets interesting results. The fact is that it’s a blog, not professional writing. You have the freedom to play around. It’s a sandbox.
