WORLD FINANCIAL SYSTEMS TO RESET WITH OR WITHOUT ILLINOIS' RICHEST MAN
By Lisa Ditkowsky, CFP®
Aurora, IL - CyrusOne top partner, Hewlett Packard Enterprises received a Biden Administration Department of Defense NSA contract in September 2021. Therefore, the Communist Party of China could not afford to look away from Aurora, Illinois, and Illinois' wealthiest man, Ken Griffin, could not afford to look away from China.
Aurora Mayor Richard C. Irvin's second-largest city in Illinois claims home to approx. $70B Chicago Mercantile Exchange's (CME) Global Trading Platform, located at Aurora's CyrusOne site. Illinois' richest billionaire, Ken Griffin of Citadel LLC / Citadel Securities does big business with military-grade CyrusOne. Griffin is long reported to have visions of Citadel's own global wireless, lightning-speed network with smaller competitor Scientel Solutions, also in Aurora.
The Gazillion dollar questions are: Why is billionaire Ken Griffin suddenly doing an about-face on Bitcoin / Crypto currencies, the Middle East and China? Why is Griffin proffering $50M to try and install Smart City-hustler Richard Irvin as Governor of Illinois? And why is Ken Griffin funding the self-proclaimed "one of the first American lawyers in Iraq", Steve Hyung Kim (aka Steve Kim) as Illinois' Attorney General?"
The Bazillion dollar answer is: Because last September 2021, The NSA (National Security Agency, Intelligence arm of the United States Department of Defense) awarded CyrusOne's top-dog partner, HPE-GreenLake, a $2B Artificial Intelligence Contract, renewable for 10 years. HPE-GreenLake (Hewlett Packard Enterprises) is reported to be CyrusOne's exclusive Hybrid and Colocation business partner.
Within months (March 2022) of CyrusOne's HPE allies capturing President Biden's new Department of Defense contract, KKR and Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) took CyrusOne private. KKR has offices throughout Communist China and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) are prominent World Economic Forum members, also in China and the Middle East, with Energy, Pipelines, Wind Farms, and Renewables all over the world.
Ken Griffin, arguably CyrusOne's biggest user and trader, hastily cozied up with China's CCP and Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum members and luminaries first, however.
KEN GRIFFIN'S CONUNDRUM - LET THE CCP INTO CHICAGO / AURORA, OR BE LOCKED OUT OF "INNOVATION" BY THE CCP
The Citadel Billionaire's proprietary network dreams with Scientel Solutions were slashed in one "Let's Go Brandon" HPE Department of Defense contract moment (September 2021).
By January 11, 2022, Citadel Securities, too, armored up for a global New World Order currency reset by bringing on its first-ever outside investors and doubled up on China. The notoriously USA and Euro-centric Citadel brought both Sequoia and Paradigm, with their bounty of $1.15B, on board. Sequoia's global head is Neil Shen, Chinese. Paradigm's cofounder is Matt Huang, former Sequoia partner and Crypto / Coinbase expert, also Chinese. Matt Huang's own namesake website states, "I'm a partner at Paradigm, an investment firm focused on cryptocurrencies, which I co-founded with Fred Ehrsam in 2018." Ehrsam is the co-founder of Coinbase, and the Chinese private capital moguls are currently rallying around crypto VC funds. Neil Shen is a prominent member of Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum, that which has decades-long designs for a One World Government.
Within weeks of Ken Griffin bringing China on board (an "aha moment" that seems to have flown over the heads of Big Media and Big Tech), Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin announced his speedy divorce and Griffin-turbo-charged candidacy for Governor of Illinois. Richard Irvin also announced four other key Illinois candidate slots were running as a "slate of candidates" alongside him. These candidates slated for Ken Griffin support: 1) Richard C. Irvin for Mayor 2) Steve Kim for Attorney General 3) Tom Demmer for Treasurer 4) Shannon L. Teresi for Comptroller and 5) John C. Milhiser for Secretary of State. Illinois campaign finance records show Ken Griffin's funding benefitting "Griffin's Slate".
Middle East-transactional lawyer Steve Kim's history is as a State Department asset and partner in RFK Global, Global Ventures Group and TRAC Development Group. Steve Kim and his Globalist business partners consulted on the build out of The New Iraq Plan (2013) and are currently working on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's 2030 Vision Plan. Notably, TRAC Development Group awarded the Iraq contract to Hillstone International and James Biden, President Joe Biden's brother.
On March 29, 2022, CyrusOne announced that KKR and Global Infrastructure Partners had taken CyrusOne private in a $15B deal. So now global PE firms KKR and GIP, are aligned with the USA Department of Defense NSA Contract, with a "Smart City" home "military base" seemingly in Aurora, Illinois.
$50M is de minimis to Ken Griffin's net worth; however, not caving to the Communist party of China and Globalist World Economic Forum, could destroy Griffin's Citadel empire. If Ken Griffin did not go along with the Richard Irvin - Steve Kim slate in 2022, the World Economic Forum Globalists would have found another American billionaire on their "hit list". The World Economic Forum has long been targeting American billionaires for Globalist "philanthropy" in WEF publications.
Ken Griffin had no choice but to feed the Globalist machine to save his Citadel. Griffin, a long outspoken critic of Bitcoin, China, Middle Eastern policy, and Terrorism, has changed three decades of his rhetoric in just mere months.
Ken Griffin only last year bashed Bitcoin as a "Jihadist call against the dollar." But, now Griffin appears to be a "kept man" in a sinister plot to try and implement One World Government with USA headquarters in Aurora, Illinois. "Griffin's" financial sponsorship of the Richard Irvin - Steve Kim five-candidate slate is enough power to offshore Illinois and reset the world financial system.
NATIONAL SECURITY RISKS OF KEN GRIFFIN AND CYRUSONE TEAMING WITH CHINA CAPITAL ON THE UNITED NATIONS "SMART CITY" AGENDA, WHILE KEEPING A RELATED NSA / DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE CONTRACT ON THE DOWN LOW
Griffin's Citadel took in Chinese PE firms, and CyrusOne was taken private by Globalist PE firms just 2-6 months after CyrusOne's exclusive Hybrid and Colocation partner, HPE-Greenlake, scored the USA Department of Defense / NSA 10-year contract. Yet, neither Citadel nor CyrusOne mentioned the lucrative and National Security sensitive deal. This would seem incredibly relevant to all business partners and investors since President Joe Biden has kept 59 Chinese companies on the USA banned list as of last summer, not to mention the geopolitical risks of Ukraine being at War.
To see just how rich these global wireless networking deals are, we need look no further than a recent update on the CyrusOne website (published after Citadel and CyrusOne's own deals closed) --
"Colocation is more sustainable than on-prem, and it’s one reason why Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) looks to CyrusOne to fulfill its clients’ data center needs. We have partnered with HPE since 2019 to provide colocation services for its cloud solution provider HPE GreenLake while also enabling easy and fast access to public cloud providers through our interconnection platform in support of hybrid IT. In addition to GreenLake, HPE has moved its core IT infrastructure, supporting 60,000 employees and $27 billion in revenue, to CyrusOne colocation facilities.
Together, we extend business agility, speed and flexibility down to the data center and address the needs of client security, regulatory and data privacy concerns for customers around the world.
Backed by CyrusOne’s experience in delivering world class data center services to the Fortune 1000 and the world’s largest hyperscale public cloud companies, enterprises can reduce the complexity of their IT management. Deploying HPE GreenLake at CyrusOne data centers allows our clients the flexibility, peace of mind and scalability to help enable their digital transformation. Enterprises can consume HPE GreenLake in their own data center or in any of CyrusOne’s more than 50 data centers around the globe – while working toward better sustainability for our environment" - April 19, 2022, CyrusOne website
On October 18, 2017, CyrusOne announced its strategic partnership with GDS Holdings Limited, China's leading developer and operator of the most cutting-edge wireless networking and data centers in China. Then public CyrusOne (Nasdaq: CONE) bought $100M of the stock of still-public GDS (Nasdaq: GDS).
Neil Shen's Sequoia is now famous for didactic doomsday economic guidance during world crises, which it appears to ignore for itself. For example, in 2008 Sequoia released its "RIP Good Times Presentation" following the housing, mortgage and securitization crises. Sequoia told companies to "reign in customer acquisition spending" and quotes Darwin as saying the "most adaptable to change" are the most fit to survive. In March 2020, Sequoia published "Coronavirus: The Black Swan Of 2020".
Sequoia's latest May 2022 gospel is a 52-page presentation, "Adapting to Endure", and warns of "turbulent financial markets, inflation, and geopolitical conflict" and says that "monetary and fiscal tools have been exhausted". The Neil Shen-helmed Sequoia directs, "Don't view cuts (including headcount) as a negative but as a way to conserve cash and run faster."
Meanwhile Sequoia now has a Citadel Board of Directors seat, and also brought on Paradigm to try and headquarter a world financial and crypto currency reset in Aurora, Illinois in the wake of a Ken Griffin-funded critical primary election on June 28, 2022.
Aurora, Illinois is already part of the United Nations' "Smart City" 2030 plan, a partnership between Governor JB Pritzker, Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin, and Smart City Capital's Oscar Bode (plus a whole list of public and private institutions).
Chinese financial companies may be telling America to slow down and adapt to the wired Surveillance State they envision, but we certainly will not be able to "run fast" and hide if we are being surveilled, monitored, and biometrically tracked.
Despite Sequoia trying to keep other investors out of the Crypto moshpit that it is trying to empty, Menlo Park VC Firm Andreessen Horowitz just raised a $4.5B Crypto VC Fund.
Chicago "Smart World" digital infrastructure architects Citizenith Holdings Inc. raised another $15M last year and boast a CEO with a Sequoia-backed pedigree, Michael Jansen. Jansen also worked as an architect in China and was named a 2014 "World Cities Summit Young Leader in Singapore."
The stakes in Aurora, Illinois for the Democratic Governor JB Pritzker hedge of "Republican" Governor candidate Richard Irvin are big and China-bound indeed. Pritzker and Irvin's plan was laid months before the John Hopkins' Event 201 global pandemic exercise and 8 months before a virtual global shutdown.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Governor Pritzker steamrolling through Bally's Chairman Soo Kim's $1.7B Casino deal before the June 28th, 2022 Primary election is no mistake. Consider that Bally's Corporation has never built a casino from the ground up but is currently building "Smart Casinos" with China's Huawei Technologies; Huawei is still on the USA banned companies list. How is that going to work that Bally's Corporation's "Smart Casino" partner is on the USA's banned Chinese securities list? There is no reason a Chicago casino deal had to be decided before the Midterm Primary elections, and there is no reason it should not have gone to the two Chicago natives behind Rivers Casino in Illinois.
Private Equity is so unregulated that China and Globalists are now arbitraging the inefficiencies in the United States markets to strongarm USA elections. Private equity, hedge funds and venture capital must start to be regulated, or Americans' freedoms and capitalism are going to become relics of another era. The public markets and private markets have been manipulated and played against each other for global power for far too long. This Globalist manipulation and inadequate USA regulation has caused just about every crisis in modern history.
