Dear Mr O'Grady,

- Advertisement -
Thank you for your letter dated April 7th 2011.

Provided you are first willing to let me have written confirmation that you are fully aware of the contents of the document I took with me (and left with) Tony Duffy at the end of the meeting I had with him in Kilconnell on April 7th 2011, I feel I can meet all of your requirements.

As you may already know, the document I have referred to in the paragraph immediately above was a printed version of an Internet page containing the text of the registered letter I sent to the Social Welfare Services Office in Sligo on March 16th 2011, and which contains references to C-PTSD injuries I have received at the hands of "individuals, public officials and bodies". The page in question is located at the following www address:

Please note though that I have also discussed the difficulties set out at the www address just above with Sean Halligan and P.J. Darcy (Executive Officer) at the Athlone Social Welfare Office on Grace Park Road; and, that on April 8th 2011 Sean Hallingan very kindly took a number of steps which may help to resolve one or both of the two issues relating to a) the 5,700 Euros (or so) shortfall in my disability benefit payments, and b) the payments for the State pension which I believe I should have been receiving since March 25th 2011 (i.e. the first Friday after my 66th birthday).

Consequently, and depending on the results of Sean Halligan's efforts, which I understand included a letter he sent to Martin McHugo (at the Bride Street Social Welfare Office in Loughrea) regarding the pension issue, and a telephone conversation with Caroline Howell at the Store Street Dublin Office of Social Protection Minister Joan Burton TD, it might yet prove unnecessary for me to apply (through you) for the emergency payments connected with the "Supplementary Welfare Allowance Entitlement Basic Payment" you have referred to in your April 7th 2011 letter to me.

Although I recall showing Sean Halligan a copy of your April 7th 2011 letter to me (on April 8th last), I am unsure if he made and kept a copy for himself. Partly because of this, I have placed a scanned copy of it at the following www location:

In an effort to keep Sean Halligan updated regarding developments connected with my case, I copied an e-mail to him (and a number of others) on April 11th 2011 which I titled: "Financial Genocide, Global Economic Warfare, and The Hague Convention"; and, should you wish to take note of the information it contains, which has references to financial genocide and cultural genocide, the full contents can be viewed at the following www location:

Finally, I would like to try to stress, to you and to all recipients of this e-mail, that to the very best of my knowledge, there is nothing whatsoever imagined or invented on my part regarding the difficult-to-overstate threat (for humanity generally) which the Global Banking Cartel poses at the present time. In connection this point, and assuming you have not already seen it, I am including information (please see the link at the end of this paragraph) regarding the recent TV3 debate hosted by lawyer and broadcaster Vincent Browne on April 13th 2011 in Dublin, whose panel guests included filmmaker and broadcaster Max Keiser. Further information on this TV debate can be found at the following address:

"Weapons of financial mass destruction", in the form of banking "derivatives" are undoubtedly a reality it would seem, and unless our senior "public servants" disentangle themselves from all of the very clever puppetry being engineered by the Global Banking Cartel, the "weapons of financial mass destruction" in question will be used (I believe) by people such as Lord Jacob Rothschild and his close associates to (among other things) slowly but surely -- very slyly, and with the fullest imaginable amount of extremely well-hidden support and backing of our entire legal profession (including former Trinity College Dublin Law Lecturer President Mary McAleese) -- rob the Republic of Ireland (and its citizens) of all, or almost all, of the 5.4 trillion Euros of untapped oil and gas resources mentioned in credible reports such as those referred to at the following www location:

My hope is that all of the Republic of Ireland's public servants will -- before it is too late -- turn away from supporting the Global Banking Cartel, and instead embrace one or other of what appears to me as the infinitely safer and healthier alternatives: such as, for example, the North Dakota Model for capitalising community banks through the responsible use of government created debt-free and interest-free money which citizens need, and which is at present being considered by numerous politicians in the United States of America and elsewhere.

Later today I will place a "rich text" copy of this e-mail, which contains hyperlinks not available in "plain text", at the following www address:

After noting the contents of this e-mail, and in the event that you feel it might still be necessary for me to apply for emergency payments through you, I would be very grateful if you could please let me have the "written confirmation" I have requested in paragraph number three from the top.

Yours sincerely,

William Finnerty.
