Stolen Art Watch, Gardner Art Heist, Warning From Ireland to Boston, "Ra" Are Watching !!!



Whitey Bulger Associate Victim Of Hit-Run

Paul Moore Found Dead In Quincy Snowbank

http://www.thebostonchannel.com/news/22058374/detail.html

The man found dead in a Quincy snowbank on Thursday morning is a former mob lieutenant and associate of James “Whitey” Bulger, the Boston Herald reported.

Paul “Polecat” Moore, 63, of Milton, was a one-time member of Bulger's South Boston gang. His body was discovered on Robertson Road at 7 a.m. by a passer-by.

It appeared he had been hit by a vehicle, police said.

"Quincy police does have evidence on hand from the scene, and they are progressing with that investigation. We have had motor vehicle homicide prosecutors on the scene and assisting Quincy police," Norfolk County District Attorney William Keating said.

Moore turned a government witness against Bulger after Moore's arrest in 1990 on drug charges. He asked Bulger to take care of his wife and children. Bulger did not, so Moore testified against him, the newspaper reported.

“Paul Moore was one of the toughest guys that ever came out of South Boston,” former state Sen. Joseph Timilty told the newspaper.

Timilty, who was convicted of conspiracy to commit fraud in 1993, became friends with Moore in prison.

Timilty said Moore had been working as a longshoreman on the docks in South Boston.

Bulger, who is on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List, has been a fugitive for more than a decade.

Correction: Wrong man ID’d as hit-and-run victim
http://news.bostonherald.com/news/regional/view/20091226correction_wrong_man_idd_as_hit-and-run_victim/

An article that appeared online and on page 8 of the print edition yesterday about a hit-and-run death in Quincy misidentified the man who was killed. He is Paul F. Moore, 63, of Milton.

Mr. Moore’s family has asked for privacy at this difficult time.

The Herald deeply regrets the error and pain caused to the Moore family.

In the same article, the Herald incorrectly reported that Paul E. “Polecat” Moore, 60, a former associate of James J. “Whitey” Bulger, was the man killed in the hit-and-run.

According to Paul E. “Polecat” Moore’s brother, who asked that his name be withheld, Paul “Polecat” Moore is living in Dorchester.


Art Hostage Comments:

Paul "Bobcat" Moore who is alive and living in Dorchester was about to break rank and give the vital information that would have led to the stolen Gardner art still in the Boston area being recovered.

The Irish Republicans who control the stolen Gardner art responded in time honoured fashion and sent a warning to anyone trying to offer back the Gardner art without the authority of Irish Republicans.

This is taking on a chilling similarity to the events in the new David Hosp book Among Thieves, due out in January 2010.
-

They boys from the "Ra" are back in Boston and they want to secure the stolen Gardner art, who ????

Representatives of the Irish Republican movement have sent operatives to Boston to secure the stolen Gardner art.
-
Behind the public face is the man who controls the stolen Gardner art.

I am confident that some stolen Gardner art will be recovered before March 2010, I just hope it can be done without any collateral damage.

Whitey Bulger, expect breaking news very soon.

Stolen Art Watch, Gardner Art Recovery, The Wait Continues !!!



Republican terrorists are thought to have created a new IRA organisation, drawing membership from the Continuity IRA (CIRA) and two factions of the Real IRA.

The security services believe the group, which is not aligned to any political party, is led by hardline dissidents and Provisional IRA members who oppose Sinn Fein’s decision to join the Policing Board in Northern Ireland. Among those suspected of involvement in the new alliance is a former member of the IRA army council.

The group has yet to declare its existence, but may announce its intentions in the new year. “In terms of its capability to mount attacks, it represents the most potent threat in terms of launching a new campaign,” said one republican hardliner.

The group has chosen not to give itself a name, with the idea of making it more difficult for supporters to be charged with IRA membership and in a bid to confuse the security services.

To avoid infiltration by the security services, the new group is understood to be “hand-picking” terrorists who have already carried out attacks or proven their credentials as members of paramilitary groups.

“It is choosing people from CIRA, RIRA and the other groups and leaving those they consider to be compromised on the outside,” said the republican source. “They don’t want republicans who are involved in smuggling and other activities that could compromise them. They might use them to generate finance or even mount an operation, but they won’t be allowed to join.

“This group is highly secretive and paranoid about informants and their identities being revealed. They are serious operators who know what’s involved in running a [terrorist] campaign. They’ve done it before.”

The new group’s ranks have been bolstered by defections from the various splinter groups of the RIRA, the terrorist group which murdered 29 people when it bombed Omagh in August 1998. It has also drawn support from members of the CIRA who have defected in Tyrone, Fermanagh and Armagh.

Some hardliners believe the CIRA army council, which is dominated by members of Republican Sinn Fein, no longer considers the use of violence justified but is refusing to state this.

There has been a upsurge in republican terrorism this year. In March, the Real IRA shot two soldiers outside Massereene Barracks in Antrim. Stephen Carroll, a member of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), was shot by the CIRA in Craigavon, Co Armagh, 48 hours later. Last month a 400lb car bomb — almost as big as the one in Omagh — was used to attack the Policing Board headquarters in Belfast.

Alleged republican terrorists tried under the Offences against the State act in the republic are usually classified as members of Oglaigh na hEireann — the Irish term for the IRA. When suspects are charged, this all-encompassing term is usually followed by a reference to a faction.

Kevin McQuillan, a spokesman for the Republican Network for Unity, a forum for dissidents, said there had been a “re-alignment” within dissident republican groups.

“I think the turning point amongst the armed groups, ironically enough, happened in March when Martin McGuinness called the republicans who attacked Massereene ‘traitors’. The use of that terminology by an iconic republican figure shocked us,” said McQuillan.

He believes attacks by IRA factions have become more strategic and frequent. “I think there is a meeting of minds among dissident republicans. There has been an increase in attacks and those operations are more organised and strategic,” he said. “There is no appetite whatsoever on the ground for military engagement with the British security forces, but these groups are growing.”

The threat posed by republican dissidents has never been greater, according to both gardai and MI5.

However, some security sources say there is an “intelligence deficit” on dissidents.

“The main players are under surveillance but there is so much activity it’s almost impossible to decipher what is happening. They are meeting and planning the whole time. Dissidents from different factions are meeting each other and hardliners from the IRA, who have drifted away from them and Sinn Fein,” said one source. “The dissidents have the capacity to kill and bomb, but not in a sustainable way.”

Stolen Art Watch, Gardner Art Heist, "Creative" Carmen Milagros Ortiz Tackles Financial Fraud, Whitey Bulger and Financial Reward !!!



http://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/view/20091203new_us_attorney_has_her_eye_on_whitey_bulger/

Art Hostage Comments:

“I’m very down to earth, I’m very genuine, I’m very sincere, and I’m very direct,”
(New U.S. Attorney Massachusetts, Carmen Milagros Ortiz 3rd December 2009)

Art Hostage has some down to earth, genuine, sincere and direct things to offer that will see Whitey Bulger in custody (Dead or Alive !!) and the return of the Stolen Gardner art.

A big welcome to Carmen Ortiz and Art Hostage commends the new U.S. Attorney for the forthright manner in which she has set out her stall.

"Financial Fraud, Financial Reward" should be be the new mantra and in that spirit the current reward for the capture of Whitey Bulger should be increased to $10 million along with the current reward offer for the recovery of the Gardner art, $5 million, should also be increased to $10 million in a down to earth, genuine, sincere, and direct manner, to coincide with the 20 years commemoration of the tragic theft next March 18th 2010.

What would this achieve, well, $10 million for the return of the stolen Gardner art and immunity from prosecution in a down to earth, genuine, sincere and direct manner would certainly bring those who control the Gardner art to the table.

Sadly, until now, those who really control the Gardner art have not believed for one minute the current reward offer of $5 million for the return of all Gardner paintings in Good Condition, or the alleged offer of immunity.
-
Remember two paintings were cut from their frames so the condition they were in straight after the Gardner Heist in 1990 was less than Good Condition.

Art Hostage has tried to convince certain parties and has been met with scepticism, and on certain occasions ridicule.

Below is the latest statement to come out of the Underworld, or from the guys controlling the Gardner art.

"Until the reward offer is specific, no conditions, and demonstrated to exist in an escrow account, along with an immunity agreement from any prosecution in regards returning the stolen Gardner art, no-one is going to put their head up above the parapet"

We must not forget those who control the some of the Gardner art may not be conventional criminals, they could have been students at the time of the Gardner Heist March 1990 and the fear-factor has prevented them stepping forward to return the Gardner art ever since.

If they knew of a previous approach to the Gardner museum was followed by that approach being passed straight to the FBI then that fact may have spooked them ever since and it is only when the conditions are presented publicly of no arrests, no prosecutions, and the reward sitting in an Escrow account, to be paid in full once the Gardner art has been recovered, will they make contact again.

Also, an important point made by the Underworld is how much would be paid if only one or two stolen Gardner artworks were to be returned ???

The answer to this problem is a tariff of exactly how much each stolen Gardner artwork would command in reward money, for example:

Vermeer The Concert 50% of the reward,

Rembrandt Storm on the Sea 20% of the reward

Rembrandt Lady and Gentleman in Black, 10%
-
Rembrandt Self Portrait 7.5%

Manet Chez Tortini 7.5%
-
Flink, 5 Degas drawings, Eagle and Ku vase 5%


Doubling the Gardner art reward to $10 million would mean each Gardner artwork is worth as follows:

Vermeer The Concert $5 million reward

Rembrandt Storm on the Sea $2 million reward

Rembrandt Lady and Gentleman in Black $1 million

Rembrandt Self Portrait $750,000

Manet Chez Tortini $750,000

Flink, 5 drawings Eagel and Ku vase $500,000


This is an example of a "creative" approach that will smoke out the elusive Gardner art.

Now moving onto Whitey Bulger.

Carmen Ortiz has said she is looking for "Creative" ways to capture Whitey Bulger.

Well, for Art Hostage to be down to earth, genuine, sincere and direct, raise the reward to $10 million and Whitey Bulger will appear just like that.

That is the word from the Underworld.
-
The past is just that, the past !!
-
Art Hostage would like to say these comments are not intended as a slur on anyone or any disrespect to anyone, Art Hostage is just trying to reach out and solve both the Gardner case and the Whitey Bulger surrender.

Stolen Art Watch, Whitey Bulger Located on French Territory, Death Penalty Extradition Dilema Faces Carmen Ortiz !!!


Whitey Bulger Located,
-
Pieces of Eight, Pieces of Eight !!!!!

Art Hostage can now reveal Whitey Bulger has been located to France or French Territory and because of this fact U.S. Authorities are facing a dilemma.

If they make a move and have Whitey Bulger arrested, then extradition will be impossible, not least because of the death penalty Whitey Bulger faces in Boston.

However, if Whitey Bulger has the death penalty lifted then that in itself could cause political embarrassment to Authorities in Boston.

Carmen Ortiz has been briefed on this dilemma and the "Creative" remark she made today at her first press conference refers to the secret plan to tempt Whitey Bulger off French Territory so any arrest can be quickly resolved, especially if Whitey Bulger is arrested in the UK, then Whitey Bulger would be swiftly taken back to the U.S. secretly.

It has been discussed at very high levels about the possibility of secretly kidnapping Whitey Bulger and flying him straight to the U.S. without informing the local authorities.

Discussions have also taken place about Whitey Bulger surrendering and the reward money being paid, the figure of $10 million has been mentioned and the Bulger family back in Boston are holding out their shovel size hands for their pay off.

Stolen Art Watch, Carmen Ortiz "Creative" Mission statement, "Financial Fraud, Financial Reward" !!!!




New Mass. US Attorney focuses on financial fraud
-

The new U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts says she wants to beef up prosecution of financial fraud cases to prevent the kind of disaster caused by disgraced financier Bernard Madoff.

Carmen Ortiz said today she plans to reach out to other government agencies and private businesses to aggressively root out financial fraud.

She said she wants victims of financial crimes to know her office is "open for business."

Ortiz is the first woman and the first Hispanic to hold the top federal prosecutor’s job in Massachusetts.

In her first meeting with reporters since taking office last month, Ortiz said she also plans to look for "creative" ways to aid in the hunt for fugitive gangster James "Whitey" Bulger.

Bulger is on the FBI’s "Ten Most Wanted" list.

This an example of a "creative" approach that will smoke out the elusive Gardner art.

Who would Art Hostage go to in Boston to recover the Gardner art if armed with the new $10 million reward offer and a definite immunity agreement ???

Simple, one man, no other, Mr Patrick Nee because he still has enough respect across ethnic lines in the Underworld to be trusted to pull this thing off, that is if the deal was proved to be airtight and legitimate.

Who would be the man to negotiate with Patrick Nee, again, one man, no other, Anthony Amore.

Even if the former students wanted to deal back some of the the Gardner art Patrick Nee is man to broker the deal via Anthony Amore.

Now moving onto Whitey Bulger.

Carmen Ortiz has said she is looking for "Creative" ways to capture Whitey Bulger.

Well, raise the reward to $10 million and Whitey Bulger will appear just like that.

That is the word from the Underworld.
