Fig. 1 -​North Dakota Governor (2016-2024) Douglas J. Burgum. Burgum has played the citizens of North Dakota for the trusting fools. He filed a meager 3-page Statement of Interests in 2020 where he failed to disclose over 80% of his holdings and interlocked relationships. Then, just three years later, he filed a 25-page Office of Government Ethics financial disclosure and 1,501-page FEC donor and lender disclosure during his short-lived run for the American presidency. During his entire political career right up to 2023 he has failed to disclose his interlocking relationships with leaders of the British Pilgrims Society, including Henry Kissinger, Goldman Sachs, and McKinsey & Company, among many others.

in his short-lived run for president, Burgum produced a 25-page ethics disclosure and a 1,501-page FeC donor disclosure in 2023.  

They prove that his 2020 North Dakota Statement of Interests was a cynical ethics sham. 

Revelation: Burgum is an up to $59.5 million debt slave to goldman sachs.

Burgum had an ethical duty to disclose . . . but he did not

MAY 31, 2024Doug   Burgum’s 2023 disclosures reveal that he is an up to  $59.5 million debt slave to Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs is  a leading member of the British Pilgrims Society run by Babylonian Rādhānite merchant-bankers in The City of London and New York. (Sir) Henry Kissinger was a long-time vice president along with Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. Kissinger’s first speech in 1973 as Nixon's newly-appointed secretary of state was to the Pilgrims Society in London where he announced the petrodollar over silver-backed currency.

Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia University, was the Pilgrims Society’s long-time American-"branch" president (1902-1945) and mentor to Pilgrim David Sarnoff (AT&T, RCA, NBC, surveillance, propaganda, mind control, communications, satellites) and J. Edgar Hoover (FBI), among many others including (Sir) Caspar Weinberger, (Sir 'new world order') George H.W. Bush, (Sir) Rudy Giuliani, (Sir) Alan Greenspan, (Sir) Dean Rusk, (Sir) George Mitchell. More recently (Sir biowarfare) Bill Gates. These facts beg the obvious question: Who has really been controlling America since the dawn of the 20th century? Burgum is evidently groomed and controlled by this secret group.

Burgum’s 1,501-page FEC Form 3P donor report is padded with “Winred, P.O. Box 9891, Arlington VA 22219-1891” repeated 3,488 times. It appears to be a donor faking scheme to meet minimum thresholds to qualify for debate participation. Burgum's handlers were evidently eager to expose their no-name groom to a wider audience.

Burgum lied to North Dakotans about his finances, and feigned trustworthiness, while he deceived the public in order to convince voters that he is trustworthy. Gaslighting 101. "By their fruit you shall know them." Matthew 7:16.

On page 1,500 of 1,501, Burgum discloses a $4.5 million campaign loan on Jun. 22, 2023 from Goldman Sachs with dubious terms: no interest, ambiguous collateral, no due date. Sounds like the Rothschild and Warburg loans-never-paid-back to form the Federal Reserve in 1913. Add this $4.5 million FEC election loan to his federal disclosure of up to $55 million in Goldman Sachs loans and we see up to $59.5 million in Goldman loans.

The "Safe harbor rule" financial disclosure ethics scam

A favorite sleight of hand on federal OGE 278 financial disclosure forms is the ranges used to delineate the amounts held. For example: $1m-$5m, and $5m-$25m, and $25m-$50m, and over $50m. These ranges give a wide swath in which to hide misconduct. Further, in 2000 the Office of Government Ethics issued a tortured opinion changing its disclosure rules so that the actual stocks held in mutual funds did not have to be disclosed. In so doing, a judge, for example, could hold stock in Facebook in his mutual fund without being required to disclose his Facebook holding even when a case involving Facebok came to that court. See Aug. 25, 2000 Proposal, and Sep. 06, 2000 Rules Change. This is exactly what the federal judges did, including Chief Justice John Roberts, in the Leader v. Facebook patent infringement trial. The Federal Circuit (Circuit judges Rader, Lourie, Moore, Wallach, clerk Horbaly, and now Stark, then District Court magistrate) ignored an amicus brief exposing their interlocked Facebook financial interests.

In short, a decision in Facebook's favor in that court boosted the value of that judge's mutual funds that held Facebook stock. This sleight of hand re. mutual funds is euphemistically called "the safe harbor rule" today. Truth is, it is not a rule, not a law, it is only a "concept" applied like a law written in stone. Why? Because every public official can hide their financial interests in companies that come before them as public officials. It is insider trading dressed up to look legal.

Why? Congress never approved this safe harbor "concept." But, politicians, judges, and bureaucrats have adopted it across the board as if it was law. It gives them the excuse to hide their financial interests in companies that come before them as public officials. It is insider trading dressed up to look legal. Untold British offshore secret accounts add to this betrayal of the citizenry.

Goldman Sachs was Burgum’s Great Plains Software underwriter and largest outside investor in 1998. We will reveal these proofs later in this post.

Burgum is an evident groomed cardboard cut-out of the Pilgrims Society. How else would a no-name from North Dakota graduate with a dubious B.U.S. degree (Bachelor of University Studies, huh?), start a chimney sweep business, become BFF with Steve Ballmer, then have the experience to buy an accounting software company, team with Goldman Sachs and IBM and then sell to Microsoft for $1.1 billion. This just does not happen outside of the military-industrial complex bubble of corruption.

Ethics Failure #1 - Arthur Ventures interlocks

Burgum's 2020 Statement of Interests failed to disclose 80% of holdings in the venture capital treachery he ostensibly founded named Arthur Ventures.

Those nondisclosures reveal extensive interlocked relationships with BlackRock, Vanguard, Koch, Piper Jaffray, and Microsoft through his partners Patrick Meenan (since 2012), Ryan Kruizenga (since 2016), and David O'Hara (undisclosed).

Ethics Failure #2 - Goldman Sachs interlocks

Doug Burgum is an up to $49.5 million Goldman Sachs debt slave. $4.5  million was loaned to his 2024 presidential campaign with no strings attached, not due data, and no collateral. With no mechanism to pay back the loan. Add this $4.5 million campaign disclosure to his federal disclosure of up to $55 million in Goldman Sachs loans and we see up to $59.5 million in Goldman loans. Goldman can certainly make sure that the loan becomes a ball and chain controlling Burgum indefinitely. 

Two-term governor of North Dakota, Doug Burgum, ran for president for 11 months in 2023 (Jan. 07 to Dec. 04). He qualified for the Republican debate on Aug. 23, 2023 by selling $20 gift cards for a $1 donation to reach the required 40,000 donor threshold. In short, he bought votes.

Ethics Failure #3 - North Dakota Statement of Interest lies

Burgum filed a three-page ethics disclosure called a “Statement of Interest ” in North Dakota. The law required him to disclose all material relationships, holdings, and directorships that might affect his impartiality. Even a cursory review of the public record shows that Burgum failed dramatically to be transparent with the citizens of North Dakota. He failed to disclose 25 pages of interests that he later disclosed in his federal ethics disclosure OGE Form 278e. The public record clearly shows that Burgman scoffed at the requirement to disclose ALL material relationships and holdings, just on his Arthur Ventures venture capital companies alone.


Burgum's ethics statement hid substantial Great Plains Software material interests and interlocked relationships.

On Mar. 19, 1998, Burgum took Great Plains Software public after investing a modest $250,000 in Mar. 1983 that was raised by mortgaging his portion of the family farm, so the dubious propaganda goes. We also find his unlikely linkup with Steve Ballmer at Stanford dubious as well. In 2000 Burgum sold the company to Microsoft for $1.1 billion.

On Sep. 01, 1998, Burgum’s Great Plains cut a sweetheart outsourcing deal with IBM. Great Plains is an enterprise accounting system now called Microsoft Dynamics 365. 

Burgum became president in 1984, then chairman and CEO by 1997. Just prior to the sell-out to Microsoft, Burgum had also interlocked himself with IBM. 

Great Plains’ largest outside investor was Goldman Sachs Group. Their securities law firm was Hale and Dorr LLP (now Wilmer & Hale LLPRobert S. Mueller III’s firm). 

Great Plains maintained subsidiaries throughout British Commonwealth dependents including UK,  Australia, Singapore, and South Africa.

In his North Dakota 2020 Statement of Interest discloses on one (1) Great Plains investment, but in his 2023 Office of Government Ethics disclosure he discloses 47 Great Plains investments! No reasonable person can explain such a dichotomy except FRAUD, we believe.

Ethics Failure #5 - uNIPARTY interlocks

Burgum teamed with the Uniparty without disclosing the interlocking relationships.

Doug Burgum for America, Inc.  failed to disclose its interlocked relationships with at least 159 other federal political action committees (PACs) by way of his treasurer Paul Kilgore, Athens, Georgia. These relationships include a subsidiary relationship with the NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee) that funnels funds through a PAC named  “Pit Crew Fund.”

Kilgore is the treasurer for at least 159 PACs according to the FEC. Burgum had/has a duty to disclose these material relationships. See  List of Paul Kilgore’s clients.

Ethics Failure #6 - Pilgrims Society interlocks

Burgum failed to disclose his decades-long interlocked relationships to Henry Kissinger, Kissinger & Associates, British Pilgrims Society, McKinsey & Company, and Steven K. Sydness.

When Burgum took Great Plains Software public in 1998, he identified a vice president of International Operations named Steven K. Sydness who was employed by Henry Kissinger Associates and the management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, Inc. in their New York and Tokyo offices. Sydness attended Harvard Business School and Principia College. Burgum supported Sydness for Congress.

At Great Plains Software Sydness had been VP Strategic Planning, VP Sales, VP Business Development, VP, Dynamics Group, VP International Operations.

In Sep. 1999, Sydness then became founder, executive chairman, and CEO of Endurance International Group, Inc.(EIG). . Henry Kissinger was executive advisor. Endurance was an acquisitions vehicle to consolidate Internet hosting companies into just a few hands globally. EIG acquired more than 70 hosting companies in an evident monopolistic purchasing spree.

Sydness died in 2014, but EIG went on to be purchased by Clearlake Capital Group brokered, lawyered, and banked by the usual Pilgrims Society suspects including Accel-KKR (James W. Breyer, Accel Partners, Facebook, National Venture Capital Association, American Academy of Achievement, Chinese Premier Xi ​Jinping), Goldman Sachs Group, GS Capital Partners, Warburg Pincus, Wilmer Hale LLP, Sidley Austin LLP, Kirkland Ellis LLP, JPMorgan, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, UBS, Rothschild & Co.

See EIG shareholder agreement for the Clearlake Capital buyout.   

Other Great Plains Software principals (Burgum interlocking relationships) include:

Doug Burgum interlocked relationships

Fig. 3--Doug Burgum fails to disclose most of his interlocked relationships that dictate his political conduct.

The interlocking relationships are profound:

Fig. 4Anne Pimlott Baker. (2003). The Pilgrims of the United States - A Centennial History, p. 149, PDF p. 85. Profile Books (2003). Kissinger was a vice president of the Pilgrims Society in 2003, Anne Pimlott Baker, p. 194, PDF p. 94, at May 6, 2003. Henry Luce III was president of the Pilgrims Society in 2003 and was publisher of Time, Fortune, Sports Illustrated magazines. The influence of the Pilgrims BBC/Sarnoff/Empire Press Union et al is obvious. Reproduced for educational purposes only. Fair Use relied upon.

Sydness’ association with Kissinger & Associates was removed in the first Great Plains proxy statement on Oct. 15, 1997. The Burgum association with Pilgrims Society leader Kissinger is kryptonite when it becomes know, hence the strong attempt to hide it.

Kissinger’s entire career from hisfirst days with the Rockefeller Foundation in the 1950’s was to promote the “new world order” driven by the Pilgrims Society in London through its Babylonian Radknight merchant-bankers in The City of London. For example, when Richard Nixon appointed Kissinger Secretary of State in his second administration, Kissinger’s first speech was to the Pilgrims Society in London where he announced the death of the silver backed dollar and the rise of the petro dollar.

Mehra’ association with Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was hidden in the first Great Plains proxy statement on Oct. 15, 1997 and the S-1 Registration on Mar. 19, 1998

By way of conclusion to this section, interlocking relationships rarely expire, they just lie dormant for a while. However, when the needs arise, these interlocks are like spies, they are always on call for the next Pilgrims Society project. 

Put another way, when you have been initiates into the pagan Pilgrims Society Babylonian Radknight merchant-banker world, an invitation to a new ritual cleansing is always just around the corner.

Burgum fails to disclose the vast majority of his Pilgrims Society interlocks.

We did not heed Lillian Scott Troy’s warnings in 1913

We let her be deported and robbed by England without protest.

Will we listen to her now, 111 years later? 

Time will tell.

Note: Columbia University president Nicholas Murray Butler served as president of the Pilgrims Society of the United States "branch" from 1903-1945. He oversaw the organizing of the British First Imperial Press Conference, 1909, oversaw the recruitment of Franklin D. RooseveltDavid Sarnoff (RCA, NBC), J. Edgar Hoover (FBI), Anglican Bishop Henry C. Potter into the Pilgrims Society.

Elihu Root was co-founder of the Pilgrims Society (1902); former U.S. Secretary of War (1899-1904); U.S. Secretary of State (1905-1909); NY U.S. Senator (1909-1913); founding president, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (1910); Nobel Prize (1912); founder, Council on Foreign Relations (1918). He was also personal attorney to J.P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie.

John Hay was U.S. Ambassador to the Court of St. James where he promoted annexation of America by Britain. He once described (banker) war "as necessary as it is righteous" and described another war as "a splendid little war"--he was a Pilgrims Society merchant-banker warlord par excellence.

On Apr. 25, 2019, then President Trump was served official notice, as the chief executive, that the U.S. government violated the property rights of social networking inventor Leader Technologies--the First Amended Miller Act Notice.

Fig. 6--FIRST AMENDED MILLER ACT NOTICE. (Apr. 25, 2019). Leader Technologies, Inc. to U.S. Executive pursuant to 40 U.S.C. §3131 et seq. Leader Technologies, Inc.

Truth Social has parked its Ponzi scheme on Michael McKibben's patented technologies without paying a license fee. Despite having proof that Trump (or at least certain advisors) received formal notice of the theft, these facts are not disclosed to Trump's prospective investors in their SEC filing. This is evident fraud by at least Trump's auditors, securities lawyers, and advisors. Was he being further set up or is he in on this fraud? Time will tell. Given the results of the latest Alvin Bragg show trial, Trump's enemies appear to stop at nothing to compromise the advisors around Trump.

Trump knows all about the theft of social networking. Leader sent him hundreds of Fifth Amendment demands by its shareholders. It was delivered by senior staffers from Rep. Jim Jordan's office. We note that the Truth Social SEC disclosures discombobulate their position relative to potential infringed property. The wording is evidently intended to absolve Trump of any potential liability for a supposed lack of knowledge of his infringement of Leader Technologies social networking inventions.

Rep. Jim Jordan's staff hand delivered the Miller Act Notice to the white House

Some of Leader's shareholders reside in Rep. Jordan's Ohio district. Note: Since this Notice was put forward, numerous unscrupulous attorneys aligned with the British Pilgrims Society and their American sycopants have tried to assert that the Miller Act does not apply to the government confiscation of software construction projects. They also argue that the bonds supplied to the federal government by the tens of thousands of beneficiaries of government technology payments cannot be used to pay Leader Technologies for the effective confiscation of thier inventions.

The purpose of the Fifth Amendment Takings Clause was specifically to compensate owners of property from having their property siezed by the federal government without due compensation. Leader's circumstance could not be more classically applied. See Legal Social

Note: British MI6 is still redacting in 2024 many of the names on their 1946 delegation, thus committing espionage against the United States in 1946, and still today.

"five eyes" british spies redacted their founders even in 2010--they are evidently hiding their blood-lineage controllers today

Who pulls King Charles III's Chain?

The British Pilgrims Society through The City of London and the Babylonian Rādhānite (Radknightsmerchant-banker pagans who control the British Crown.

Their flunkies doing their bidding in the USA are British Spy No. 7 Alexander Hamilton’s American banks, notably JPMorgan, Bank of America, Bank of New York Mellon, State Street along with asset managers like BlackRock, Fidelity, T. Rowe Price and Vanguard, who are controlled by the British Crown  and the Rothschilds in the City of London via the Monarch’s “Golden Share.”

Don’t believe that the British run America? Just look at the false flag they are trying to orchestrate in Poland right now. Poland is historically one of the favorite choke points of the British Empire to try and take down Russia to seize control of Russia’s 11 times zones of resources, again. When will we learn?

Fig. 9--The Georgia Guidestones is a monument made in 1980 by an anonymous author that details in 8 different languages how to build a new society, with apparent advocacy of population control, eugenics, and internationalism. It was destroyed by an unknown person(s) on Jul. 27, 2022. See


Fig. 10—The City of London is controlled by the Pilgrims Society who carry on the pagan control of the Rādhānite merchant-bankers of Babylon. “The City of London Co​rporation” was chartered in 1067 after the coronation of William I, William the Conqueror, on Dec. 25, 1066 AD at Westminster Abbey.

William was Norman (French). The Babylonian Rādhānite (demon-worshipping pagans who claimed to be Jews for more than three millennia) already had an extensive banking and trade network through Europe and Middle East, Scandanavia and Africa to China.

The ​Rādhānite merchant-bankers were forced to flee Babylon (renamed Baghdad) ahead of the armies of the Muslim Seljuk Turks in 1055 A.D.—just 11 years earlier. They fanned out along their extensive network of merchant-banking trading post across the known world.

“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.'” Matthew 21:12-13.

“Synagogue of Satan”

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”  Revelation 3:9. 

In the process, they rebranded themselves as “Ashkenazi Jews.” They had called themselves Jews for millennia while in Babylon, but they had created their unique pagan version that followed the Talmud, Yiddish, and rabbis, rather than the Torah, Hebrew, and Prophets.

The Babylonian Empire codified debt slavery by sanctioning usury (charging interest on the loan of money) in the Code of Hammurabi (1755–1750 BC). They put fake Jews in charge of these practices. While the Prophets Ezekiel and Daniel ca. 600 BC were decrying usury, exiled "Jews" like the Egibi and Marushu banking families, who had so intermixed with Persians that their Jewishness had vanished, were assigned the task of running all aspects of the Babylonian economy, including Silk Road commerce from Britain to China, leveraging Solomon's Gold, banking, finance, intelligence, propaganda, engineering, agriculture, and trade.

The Babylonian Empire worshipped demon gods who demanded child sacrifice and debt slavery, including Mammon, Moloch, Asmodeus, Ba’al, Baphomet, Beelzebub, Behemoth, Ishtar, Legion, Leviathan, Lucifer, Mammon, Marduk, Moloch, Pazuzu, Satan, Agrat bat Maḥlat, Alu, Alukah, Asherah, Ashmodai, Astarte, Azazel, Belial or Beliar, Bel-Marduk, Chemosh, Dagon, Deber, Dever, Ekimmu, Gallu, Horon, Ilu Limnu, Keṭeb, Kotar Hosis, Labartu, Labartu, Lamashtu, Lilith, Lilu, Lotape, Mavet, Nahar, Nergal, Ninisina, Pentalpha, Rabisu, Reshef, Resheph, Resheph, Samael, Shachar, Shalem, Shamḥazai, Shedim, Shedim, Tannin, Tiamat, Tirosch, Yoḥane bat Reṭibi, and others.

King Solomon's 700 wives and 300 concubines eventually lured him into building temples to and worshipping these Babylonian demon gods. This is evidently when the ​Babylonian Rādhānite took full control of Solomon's Gold that had been carted off to Babylon. Then, shipped to The City of London ca. 1067 AD.

Tell the Synagogue of Satan

Jesus Christ: "Get behind me, Satan."
Matthew 16:23

Described above is abject immorality on the part of the British Pilgrims Society and their Babylonian Rādhānite synagogue of satan demons.

Morality must win the day.

"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

The Gospel of St. Matthew 4:17.

Leader Technologies, Inc. sent their FIRST AMENDED MILLER ACT NOTICE to President Trump (the then-current President) It is a contract demand for the U.S. Treasury to pay them for the federal government's 18-year theft of their social networking inventions. These inventions were stolen by Major General James E. Freeze (US Army, ret.) and Leader's patent attorney James P. Chandler, III, on behalf of Andrew W. Marshall and the Department of Defense Office of Net Assessment, and the Pilgrims Society who steal and weaponize inventions for continuous war making and enrichment of fascist insider military-industrial corporations.
