About Hugh Ellsworth from wiki:
Hugh Ellsworth Rodham (April 2, 1911 – April 7, 1993) was an American textile wholesaler and father of former First Lady of the United States, New York Senator, and United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
He was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the son of Hugh Rodham and Hannah Jones. His father was English, an immigrant from County Durham, while his mother was born in Pennsylvania, to Welsh immigrant parents; both were descended from lines of coal miners.
Rodham attended Pennsylvania State University and was a third-string tight end for the Penn State Nittany Lions football team. He joined the Delta Upsilon Fraternity. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education from the College of Education in 1935, at the height of the Great Depression.
He briefly worked for his father’s employer, Scranton Lace Company, then freighthopped to Chicago without telling his parents. Rodham found work there selling drapery fabrics around the Midwest, sending the money he made back home.
In 1937, while Rodham was making a sales call at a textile company, he met Dorothy Emma Howell (1919–2011), who was applying for a job at that company. After a lengthy courtship, they married in early 1942. Rodham enlisted in the United States Navy, where he became a Chief Petty Officer stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Station, performing training duties for sailors headed for the Pacific Ocean theater of World War II.
After the war, he began what was to prove to be a very successful career in the textile supply industry, starting with Rodrik Fabrics, a drapery fabric business located in Chicago’s famous Merchandise Mart building. His company made drapes and window shades; his customers included offices, hotels, airlines, and theaters. He later opened a fabric print plant building on the North Side. Rodham tried politics once, running for Chicago alderman as an independent in 1947; he lost badly to the Richard J. Daley political machine with which he was hoping to ingratiate himself.

Irving H. Picard (born June 26, 1941) is a partner in the law firm Baker Hostetler. He graduated from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, with a B.S. degree (1963), from Boston University School of Law with a J.D. degree (1966), and from the New York University School of Law with an LL.M. degree in 1967, and was admitted to the New York Bar in 1982. In 2008, U.S. District Judge Lawrence McKenna appointed Picard trustee of assets seized by the court from Bernard Madoff. Since then, he has been centrally involved in the recovery of funds from the Madoff investment scandal.
Mr. Picard went to Camp Avoda in Middleboro, MA.

Back to the Hughes, Picard, dit la Fortune (Fontaine) Parrot/Perrot/ Smith, Black/Block/ Brach, laGreene, etc..names we keep finding.
We find it again here:
In my original post, I covered the key players in this story. Since then, I have found more.
Let’s look at the main players again.
First we have Bo.
Then we have his wife who is involved in murder.
Murdered by Gu Kailai
Then we read that Bo and Gu Kailai’s son dated John Huntsman’s daughter.
Now when you look into the Huntsman name you find other connections, like a lady named Catherine WEIRick Huntsman. I find this an odd coincidence since I have work on the Weir/Tudor family and Anna Duke aka Weir on another post. But that is not all, on a family tree of the James Huntsman family I find another odd name. That name is Madeline Chinn.
Bailey* Note* Jan(e), Jan, Jean, Janz, John etc..
Helen Voorhees Brach (born November 10, 1911), was an American multi-millionairess widow whose wealth had come from marrying into the E. J. Brach & Sons Candy Company fortune; she endowed the Helen V. Brach Foundation to promote animal welfare in 1974. Helen Brach disappeared on February 17, 1977 and was declared legally dead in May 1984. An investigation into the case uncovered serious criminal activity associated with Chicago stable owners including Silas Jayne and Richard Bailey (with whom Brach was romantically involved). More than a decade later Bailey was charged with, but not convicted of, conspiring to murder Mrs. Brach; he eventually received a long sentence after being convicted of defrauding her.
Who does SHE look like ? aka *Bailey, Weir, Danielle etc..
Bill Ayers, Weather Underground, Prairie Fire, Anna Duke (Weir) at link above.
Also see the name Neil Chapman Wood at link above. I wonder if this connects to Putin’s friend Anna Chapman the Russian spy ? Natalie Wood ? Robert Wood Johnson family ? The Woods fund ? Johnson publishing family ? Interesting. That NEIL name is never far away either.
Is this a coincidence that Lame Cherry has worked on the name Anna Chinn for quite some time ?
Is it a coincidence that the name HAY/HEY comes up in the Happy Valley set in Africa with Alice of the Armour family fame ? or that the name John, Jane, Janz, Jean etc…is always close too ?
Also see Tricia Nixon Cox, Edward FINCH Cox as well as:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denys_Finch_Hatton Happy Valley set of Kenya,Karen Blixen, Out of Africa, Armour family Alice deJanz etc..
Is her name a coincidence too ?
She married royalty as well…
Is it a coincidence that the Alexander family is in the W.E.B. DuBois photo album online and DuBois means “WOOD” in French and he married Shirley GRAHAM ? Another coincidence that an Armour family member married a Russian royal ?

A Russian espionage ring in the U.S – which included glamorous spy Anna Chapman – planned to groom their children as agents, and one had already enthusiastically accepted, it has been claimed.
When the 10 spies were busted in 2010, officials suggested they were largely ineffectual, but new claims suggest they were looking at long-term work in the U.S. by breeding their own future agents.
Tim Foley, the son of two members of the ring living in Cambridge, Masachusetts, was among the children most extensively groomed, U.S. officials told the Wall Street Journal.

Back to China again:
Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (Chinese: 华为 (Huáwéi); English pronunciation: “Hua-way) is a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong. It is the largest telecommunications equipment maker in the world, having overtaken Ericsson in 2012.
Huawei was founded in 1988 by ex-military officer Ren Zhengfei and formed as a private company owned by its employees. Its core missions are building telecommunications networks; providing operational and consulting services and equipment to enterprises inside and outside of China; and manufacturing communications devices for the consumer market. Huawei has over 140,000 employees, around 46% of whom are engaged in research and development (R&D) It has 20 R&D institutes in countries including China, the United States, Germany, Sweden, Ireland, India, Russia, and Turkey, and in 2011 invested around US$3.74 billion in R&D.
In 2010, Huawei recorded profit of 23.8 billion CNY (3.7 billion USD) Its products and services have been deployed in more than 140 countries and it currently serves 45 of the world’s 50 largest telecoms operators.
Huawei is organized around three core business segments:
- Telecom Carrier Networks, building telecommunications networks & Services;
- Enterprise Business, providing equipment, software and services to enterprise customers, and
- Devices, manufacturing electronic communications devices.
Its three core businesses: Huawei announced its Enterprise business in January, 2011 to provide network infrastructure, fixed and wireless communication, data center, and cloud computing solutions for global telecommunications customers. Huawei has stated that it aims to increase enterprise sales to US$4 billion in 2011 and $15 billion within three to five years.
As of the start of 2010, approximately 80% of the world’s top 50 telecoms companies work with Huawei. Prominent partners include BT,odafone, Motorola, France Telecom, T-Mobile, Talk Talk, Portugal Telecom, Cox Communications, Bell Canada, and Clearwire. In May 2011, Huawei was awarded a contract with Everything Everywhere, the UK’s biggest communication company, to enhance its 2G network. The four-year deal is Huawei’s first mobile network deal in the UK.
IDG News Service – Chinese handset maker Huawei Technologies expects its smartphone chip business will help further drive revenue, signaling that the company could try to compete in the world’s mobile chip market.
“In the future, whether it be mobile broadband devices, tablets, or smartphones, Huawei will be able to provide its own core chip solution,” said Huawei executive vice president Eric Xu.
He made the comment on Wednesday during the company’s annual analyst summit, when asked how Huawei would grow its smartphone market share without losing money to marketing efforts.
“If we cannot make money from smartphones, we can still make money from the chipset offerings,” Xu said. “If we can make money from every smartphone chip, then it will be substantial.”
This year, Huawei unveiled its own in-house developed quad core processor when it announced the company’s Ascend Quad family of smartphones. Huawei’s K3V2 quad core processor is based on the ARM architecture and has a clock speed running at either 1.2 GHz or 1.5 Ghz.
The Chinese handset maker has previously used chips from other vendors for its smartphones. But it also has a division called HiSilicon Technologies, which developed the K3V2 chip, along with other wireless baseband processors.
Entering the mobile chip market would mean Huawei would compete against well-established players including Qualcomm, Nvidia and Texas Instruments, which already supply processors used in some of the hottest smartphones and tablets in the market.
The K3V2 chip is currently only used by the company, but Huawei is open to making it available to other vendors, said Shao Yang, chief marketing officer for Huawei Device. At the same time, the company will also continue considering using processors from mobile chip vendors such as Qualcomm and Texas Instruments to power its smartphones, he added. One of Huawei’s newest smartphones, the Ascend P1, uses a chip from Texas Instruments.
Huawei is best known as supplier of telecommunication equipment. But the company has big ambitions in the smartphone market, where it intends to compete by offering both lower-end and higher-end devices. Last year, the company sold 20 million smartphones.
3Com Corporation was a digital electronics manufacturer best known for its computer network infrastructure products. The company was co-founded in 1979 by Robert Metcalfe, Howard Charney, Bruce Borden, and Greg Shaw. The name 3Com came from the company’s focus on “Computers, Communication and Compatibility”.
3Com provided network interface controllers and switches, routers, wireless access points and controllers, IP voice systems, and intrusion prevention systems. The company was based in Massachusetts, USA. From its 2007 acquisition of 100 percent ownership of H3C Technologies Co., Limited (H3C) —initially a joint venture with China-based Huawei Technologies—3Com achieved a leading market presence in China, and a significant networking market share in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. 3Com products were sold under the brands 3Com, H3C, and TippingPoint.
On April 12, 2010, Hewlett-Packard completed the acquisition of 3Com. Since the HP acquisition, 3Com has been fully absorbed by HP and no longer exists as a separate entity.

Next we have Eric Xu:
IN the summer of 1998 at a picnic in Silicon Valley, Eric Xu, a 34-year-old biochemist, introduced his shy, reserved friend Robin Li to John Wu, then the head of Yahoo’s search engine team.
Mr. Li, 30 at the time, was a frustrated staff engineer at Infoseek, an Internet search engine partly owned by Disney, a company whose fading commitment to Infoseek did not mesh with Mr. Li’s ongoing passion for search. Like Disney, Mr. Wu and Yahoo were also losing interest in the business prospects of search, and Yahoo — in a colossal corporate blunder — eventually outsourced all of its search functions to a little startup named Google.
Mr. Xu, who had called together some friends for a documentary he was making on Silicon Valley, thought the two search guys would hit it off. Mr. Wu says he exchanged greetings with Robin Li, but what most impressed him was that despite all of the pessimism surrounding search, Mr. Li remained undaunted.
Robin Li Pinyin: Lǐ Yànhóng; born November 17, 1968) is a Chinese Internet entrepreneur. He is the co-founder of China’s most popular search engine Baidu and is ranked as the second richest man in China with a net worth of $10.2 billion.
Li studied information management at Peking University and the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. In 2000 he founded Baidu with Eric Xu. He has been the CEO of Baidu since January 2004, which was listed on NASDAQ in August 2005.Li has been listed as one of the 15 Asian Scientists To Watch by Asian Scientist Magazine on 15 May 2011.

I wrote a post just like this one that is now hiding somewhere about, so now I have to reconstruct it here. It ties into a current story on the Virgin Islands, Ace Development and and a man named Alvin Williams.
The original story I wrote was on corruption in the Virgin Islands involving a group that included the governor there, a man named John de Jongh. Now when I hear that name de Jongh, and my work on the Armour family and Alice and her Happy Vally set in Africa pops into my head I start thinking….. so…

V.I. Attorney General Vincent Frazer said Friday that he has set up a panel of his senior staff to look into a multitude of complaints residents have made to the V.I. Justice Department about the territory’s 2012 elections.
And we go back to PERCY* name again….
Governor John P. de Jongh, Jr. was born in Brooklyn, New York. As a child he attended Sts. Peter and Paul School on St. Thomas. After his parents’ divorce, he lived with his mother in Detroit, Michigan while his mother did social work for the Detroit Public Schools. During the summer, de Jongh would return to St. Thomas to assist in his father’s law firm. He earned an economics degree from Antioch College in Ohio.
De Jongh is a product of Catholic schooling, attending such institutions both on the island and in the United States. During college, he was able to study abroad, and completed an urban study in Yugoslavia and The Netherlands. After graduating from college, de Jongh returned to his ancestral Virgin Islands. He worked for several years as a member of the Economic Development Council, during which he helped receive funding for the preservation of historic Virgin Island buildings, before taking a job with Chase Manhattan. de Jongh first worked as an executive in the company’s San Juan, Puerto Rico office before once again returning to the Virgin Islands after earning the position of Consumer Manager of Operations in both the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Under his leadership, Chase placed more emphasis on personal over corporate banking in the Caribbean and increased home mortgage lending.
In 1986, he married Cecile Rene Galiber of St. Croix.

Mohamed Abdel Moneim Al-Fayed (Arabic: محمد عبد المنعم الفايد Muḥammad ʿAbd al-Munʿim al-Fāyid, IPA: [mæˈħæmmæd ʕæbdelˈmenʕem elˈfæːjed]; born 27 January 1929) is an Egyptian business magnate. Amongst Fayed’s business interests are ownership of the English Premiership football team Fulham Football Club, Hôtel Ritz Paris and formerly Harrods Department Store, Knightsbridge. Fayed has four siblings: Ali, Salah, Soaad and Safia. Fayed’s first son, Dodi, from his first marriage to Samira Khashoggi, died in a car crash in Paris along with Diana, Princess of Wales and driver Henri Paul on 31 August 1997. Fayed married Finnish socialite and former model Heini Wathén in 1985, with whom he had four children: Jasmine, Karim, Camilla and Omar. Fayed’s wealth is estimated at $1.2 billion, making him the 993rd-richest person in the world.
From wiki on Harrods:
Following denial that it was for sale, Harrods was sold to Qatar Holdings, the sovereign wealth fund of the State of Qatar in May 2010. A fortnight previously, Al-Fayed had stated that “People approach us from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar. Fair enough. But I put two fingers up to them. It is not for sale. This is not Marks and Spencer or Sainsbury’s. It is a special place that gives people pleasure. There is only one Mecca.”
The sale was concluded in the early hours of 8 May, when Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani came to London to finalise the deal, saying that the acquisition of Harrods would add “much value” to the investment portfolio of Qatar Holdings while his deputy, Hussain Ali Al-Abdulla, called it a “landmark transaction”. A spokesman for Al-Fayed said “in reaching the decision to retire, [Fayed] wished to ensure that the legacy and traditions that he has built up in Harrods would be continued.Harrods was sold for £1.5 billion; half of the sale will be used to pay bank debts of £625 million.
Al-Fayed later revealed in an interview that he decided to sell Harrods following the difficulty in getting his dividend approved by the trustee of the Harrods pension fund. Al-Fayed said “I’m here every day, I can’t take my profit because I have to take a permission of those bloody idiots…I say is this right? Is this logic? Somebody like me? I run a business and I need to take bloody fucking trustee’s permission to take my profit”] Al-Fayed was appointed honorary chairman of Harrods, a position he will hold for at least six months.

Rodman’s first wife was Annie Bakes, with whom he had a daughter named Alexis (born 1988). They divorced in the early 1990s. Rodman married model Carmen Electra in November 1998 at the Little Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas, Nevada. Electra filed for divorce in April 1999.
In 1999 Rodman met Michelle Moyer, with whom he had a son, D.J. (born 2000) and a daughter, Trinity (born 2001). Moyer and Rodman married in 2003 on his 42nd birthday. Michelle Rodman filed for divorce in 2004, although the couple spent several years attempting to reconcile. The marriage was officially dissolved in 2012 when Michelle Rodman again petitioned the court to grant a divorce. It was reported that Rodman owed $860,376 in child and spousal support.
On February 26, 2013, Rodman made a trip to the reclusive North Korea with Vice Media to host basketball exhibitions. He met North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un, leading many reporters to speculate that Rodman was the first American that Kim had met. Rodman and his travel party were the first known Americans to have met Kim. He later called Kim “his friend” and suggested that President Barack Obama “should pick up the phone and call” Kim since the two leaders were basketball fans.
In March 2013, Rodman arrived at the Vatican City during voting in the papal conclave for the selection of a new pope. Rodman said, “I want to be anywhere in the world that I’m needed”. The trip was organized by an Irish gambling company.

Toured Honolulu and Los Angeles in May 61. Visited the Pope in 1958 or 59. Informal visit was on Apr 24-25, 1961. L.A. then Hawaii. Had visits as well with Kennedy and Eisenhower in 1958. Visited Kennedy in D.C. in January 61.
Ibnu was born near the Yogyakarta Sultan’s palace on 23 September 1914. His father had been a regency head near the city of Semarang in Central Java. His privileged background at the time of the colonial Dutch East Indies allowed him to attend a superior Dutch school and then medical school in Surabaya. Upon graduation, Ibnu was assigned to a colony of Javanese transmigrants in Belitung in South Sumatra. During the Japanese occupation in World War II, Ibnu, like many indigenous Indonesians filling in for imprisoned Europeans, assumed many local administrative powers. By the time of Japan’s surrender, he was a leader in irregular forces backing the Indonesian Republic in its fight for independence.
In 1945, Ibnu was appointed a combined staff and medical officer of the republican army fighting the Dutch for the Palembang regions oil fields and plantations, and once Indonesia’s independence was secured in 1949, he worked in the region’s civilian health service whilst remaining in active army duty. He was appointed head of the South Sumatra’s Sriwijaya Division in 1955, a division which earned much revenue for the army during the independence struggle by smuggling vast quantities of rubber, tea, pepper and coffee to Singapore. Although the independence struggle was over by late 1949, the lucrative trade continued, and Ibnu benefited through his wife, Zaleha, the daughter of a wealthy family who later succeeded in business in her own right. Army commander, General Nasution, recognised Ibnu’s administrative skills and appointed him in 1956 as Chief of Logistics and subsequently added the position of chief of Operations. He returned to Palembang to talk his former troops out of joining the anti-Sukarno rebellions in Sumatra and Sulawesi. Ibnu’s military prospects were thwarted by the 1958 Tanjung Priok smuggling scandal in which he was the main actor.
In 1957, Dutch assets in petroleum were nationalised and Permina founded. General Nasution installed Sutowo as Permina’s head. He served as Minister of Mines, Oil, and Natural Gas in President Suharto‘s “New Order” emergency cabinets of 1966. Sutowo’s younger brother had been Communist mayor of Surabaya, however, the New Order’s promotion of Sutowo despite his Communist connections were exceptions in this period of Communist purges.
Using the proceeds from the 1970s oil price rises, he expanded the state run oil monopoly’s interests far beyond oil production to include investments in oil tankers, steel and construction. Bruce Rappaport, an oil tanker broker, was accused of price gouging, and corruption, in a World Bank investigation of Ibnu and Pertamina. In 1976, Pertamina had built up debts of US$10.5 billion equivalent to 30% of Indonesia’s gross domestic product at the time) and was unable to service them. Ibnu was “dismissed with honour”, and in 1978 the attorney general announced he had been found “not involved” in criminal activity. He continued to manage thirty seven private companies.

In 1974 Sutowo flew to Gothenberg Sweden where he chritened the new oil supertanker IBNU alongside close friend Itzac Rappaport. He then golfed with Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead and Gary Player.
*SUTOWO was the “money” man.
The Watney family were the main partners in the Stag Brewery, Victoria, for much of the 19th century. In 1837 James Watney became a partner in the brewery, followed by his sons James and Norman in 1856. On his death in 1884, the brewery became a private limited company.
In 1898 the company acquired Messrs. Combe Delafield and Co. and Messrs. Reid and Co., and was subsequently known as Messrs. Watney Combe and Reid. When the Stag Brewery in Victoria was demolished in 1959 the name was transferred to Mortlake Brewery.
Combe Delafield and Co. was among the major brewers in London during the nineteenth century, before being acquired by Watney in 1898, thus forming Watney Combe and Reid.
The Woodyard Brewery, of Castle Street, Long Acre, situated midway between the City and the West End of London, took its name from the original occupation of Thomas Shackle, a dealer in timber, who founded it in 1740. Shackle is said to have delivered his beer in small casks with his wood and he soon built up a valuable business. He was succeeded by a Mr. Gyfford, of whom no further record survives. At the beginning of the 19th century the brewery was acquired by Harvey Christian Combe, who was remarkable for his energy and great business ability. Combe, a Whig politician, had been Lord Mayor of London in 1799-1800 and was a Member of Parliament for the City of London from 1796 to 1817.
The business was largely increased under the management of Combe, who repaired and rebuilt the brewery premises. On his death in 1832 the brewery passed to his son, Harvey Combe, and his brother-in-law, Joseph Delafield, by whom the premises were further enlarged. Harvey Combe, who was a great sportsman and well known as the master of the Berkeley Hounds, died unmarried in 1858. He was succeeded by his two nephews, Messrs. R. H. and Charles Combe, Mr. Joseph Bonsor and his two sons, and Mr. John Spicer.

As a cricketer, George Mann was a right-handed middle-order batsman. His father, Frank Mann, also captained England, making them the first father and son to both captain England. Colin and Chris Cowdrey are the only other father and son to have done this for England.
Mann captained England in each of his seven Test matches, winning two, and drawing the other five; his father had also been captain in every Test he played in. Wisden said of Mann: “as a captain he was ideal, zealous to a degree, and considerate in all things at all times. After leading England in South Africa in 1948/49, Mann led his side for two Tests in the following summer, before he stood down, citing inability to participate regularly due to his family’s brewing business commitments (Mann, Crossman & Paulin). Mann was a main board director and retained his position on the new company board when the brewery merged with Watney Combe & Reid in 1958.
F.G. Mann was chairman of the Test and County Cricket Board (TCCB) from 1978–83; most notably during the controversy over the rebel tour which Geoff Boycott and Graham Gooch led to South Africa in 1982.

His older brother Murray Finch-Hatton, 12th Earl of Winchilsea died in 1898, surviving by only daughter, and Henry Stormont Finch-Hatton succeeded him, becoming Earl of Winchilsea and Nottingham.
On 12 January 1882 he married Anne Jane Codrington (died 20 June 1924), daughter of Admiral Sir Henry Codrington and Helen Jane Smith. They had three children:
- Gladys Margaret Finch-Hatton (8 Dec 1882 – 30 May 1964), married Captain Osmond Trahairn Deudraeth Williams (26 February 1883 – 30 September 1915), second son of Sir Osmond Williams, 1st Baronet;
