Jules Kroll is a very successful man.
He is easily worth ten billion, and he has thousands of powerful people, on his payroll, or in his debt. (We'll get to him if you keep reading.)
That power and opportunity has now passed to his children.
In particular, sons Jeremy and Nick, are making names for themselves in business, on TV, and in the press. Son Nick has even managed to finagle a starring role in an upcoming movie - that he funded, " Adult beginners."
appears to have joined his father in the family's many multifaceted expansions/investigations/ventures/businesses/ corporations/mergers/acquisitions/fronts/cover ups/engagements etc.
|too true to be remotely amusing.Kroll enjoys this state of no consequences but the show stands as evidence of how far one can go with no perceivable comedic talent|
has chosen comedy as his instrument of worldly success, and has gotten his own show, "The Kroll Show," on Comedy Central. His production company, " Good at bizness" executive produces this program and according to this video he was given complete creative control by Comedy Central-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWoKma_W9ls
Nick Kroll's, "Kroll Show," has been renewed for a third season, despite a very poor showing in the Nielsen ratings, from the start of season one, and though it has received precious few good reviews(by those not given incentives to feign approval.) In fact, the lack of reviews, in general, is odd. Of course, you can google that for yourselves.
Odder still : "Reputable," publications such as Entertainment Weekly, Zap2Sit, Deadline Hollywood, and the Onion's A.V club have reported that the show averaged 1.1 million viewers over the two seasons, so no need to pay any mind to this obscure blog(by a seemingly batty blogger,) and the TV- Aholic website, when they say otherwise- http://henypire.blogspot.com/2014/03/kroll-show-ratings-issues-have-arisen.html
In short - so you don't have to read the whole thing: Such reputable publications have said that the Kroll Show attracted an average of 1.1 million viewers, when by my calculations (gather by Zap2it and Futon Critic and TV-Aholic) prove that figure is false.
My calculations lead to a 700k average, give a little or take a little(I don't like doing math.) Not even close to 1 mil, much less 1.1 mil.
The fact that Kroll Show attracted a cancel worthy 0.5 in the key demographic, has been omitted from these articles.
Us Weekly has referred to the "Kroll Show," as a "smash hit."
Recently, at a fundraiser for charity, Nick Kroll, freaked out on the fans who simply had been stuck on his other show biz projects-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-aLCfN_66k
Whatever the dubious stats, or questionable appraisals by certain freelance journalists, Nick appears dead-set on making a name in Show Biz.
If one does a little digging, they will get the sense that Jules's Kroll's youngest child is hellbent on securing a position as a "household name," and has taken unsavory steps -- to assure the kind of success that would make his (hard to please.) papa proud. Or, perhaps his motivation stems from his desire to impress upon Wasps from the Rye Day School that he's a somebody. That is what he states in this interestingly grotesque podcast. Please note too how he sends invites for Spas and how he discusses a fellow human being in the last 20 or so minutes- http://www.gregfitzsimmons.com/2013/01/11/nick-kroll/
When Nick Kroll spoke to the woman he considers his "best and oldest comedy friend," Tig Notaro, Nick referred to himself as "upper middle class." Notaro laughingly said, "Nick, let's be honest you are so so much more than upper middle class." Kroll conceded that he's "one percent." Notaro then sighed and said, " Oh Nick, you and that checkbook of yours." At the end, she feared that she'd offended him and that she'd be "off the list." He assured her in an earnest tone that she's "top of the list." For your listening pleasure: http://www.earwolf.com/episode/fate/
Listening to him and witnessing his antics, it is my conviction that Nick doesn't seem satisfied with just business success and so he writes enough checks in the hopes that the world will view him as not only a No. 1 success, but also as a "comedy genius." This clip sure makes me feel that he is, at best -- a base imbecile. http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/327a826dd5/fabrice-fabrice-at-the-mtv-movie-awards
One can watch his show, and his one hour comedy central special, "Thank you very cool," and judge for themselves, but the consensus amongst non paid non shills is that it sucks something so fierce that one is left in a state of mystified distress. I.e Who gave this guy a show? Why oh why was his show renewed when the ratings sucked and unpaid people seem to loathe it? Often, the comments that accompany his assorted "successes," assume he must be performing impressively satisfactory sexual favors, but I know that is not the answer to such mystification.
I'm not hip to current parlance, so I'll rely on the tried and true - Nick Kroll's entire comedy career REEKS LIKE A FLOUNDER LEFT OUT IN THE DESERT FOR DECADES.
There is very strong evidence suggesting that Jules's youngest son is using journalist "pawns" to convey the appearance of success( on top of sending comedians who might advance his career to spas and first class jaunts of all kinds.)
A strange case of fake it until you make it, and then even when you don't make it as was the case was the eponymous Kroll Show- you can fake some more until there can be no real sense of any organic success, in other words.
He is also manipulating all sorts of aspirants to fame and fortune, and engaging in endless unkosher machinations to get what he wants out of life. Any inspection and one is left with the STRONG impression that Nick Kroll is engaging in a comedy payola scheme.
Nick Kroll can hook up hungry creative types(and not so creative types) with press that sings their praises. With shows. With trips. With access of the most impressive kind(can you say Obama) Plugs and placement too. Pretty Impressive. Once the press is misrepresenting your career anything is possible, it seems.
This is not regular old Nepotism, or even plain old access journalism. This is him using his family's contacts in public radio and all sorts of press- to sell his business of comedy aspirations. This is him not invested in any integrity as he claws his way to meeting his personal goals.
In other words Nick's nickname is not just Nick the prick or Nick the dick, but also, Nick "The bottomless checkbook" Kroll.
Very few would have impetus to investigate such a seemingly inconsequential state of affairs. A D-list comic, you can't be serious? Who cares?
But, if one has incentive as I do( because he decimated their lives using deeply dirty tricks,) they will soon see that an endless stream of journalists have abdicated a degree of ethics to wink wink and agree to Nick Kroll's seemingly incessant requests for press and plugs and "impressions."
This ever growing list of Kroll Journo hos, have not done what Ms. Cuddahe has done, in response to offers from Kroll.
Hmmm, NPR too-http://www.npr.org/2014/01/19/263749123/before-jersey-shore-owned-sleaze-there-was-bobby-bottleservice
Feigned fandom for funding, I say!
Voraciously rapacious, Nick, has repeatedly expressed that his father approves of the way he has been, "running his comedy career as a business." He even said that he has shown his father he too could "be the boss." Also, " My father appreciates my Entrepreneurial approach to comedy."
Yet, despite his relentless seven year crusade to become as famous and show biz successful as possible, if you mention the name " Nick Kroll," many draw a blank. And, so, he is now trying to remedy this pesky semi obscurity in various ways.
His ascent to the A-list from the bowels of the D list has been rocky so far and it seems he's hatched a new plan: Become a part of a power couple.
Ms. Amy Poehler is poised to be the female part of this plan to be a , "Power Couple."
These Two love birds romp on Baja Beaches whilst wearing color coordinated garb, and trying their best, to avoid the prying eyes of the paparazzi?
Mainstream publications, throughout the world( Daily Mail, Just Jared, Splitsider,TMZ, US weekly et al) and less obvious venues such as Classiclite , have made much effort to impart this "red hot" couple upon the oblivious masses.
Classiclite: A publication that appears to cover Theater, Jazz, Orchestra, Dance -and Nick Kroll and Amy Poehlers romance. Recently, they dropped all pretense of jazz and such - to discuss a fun feud with Will Arnett!
(of note: Check out also Brooklyn Vegan's coverage of Nick Kroll and Tig Notaro if you want to see some more incongruity!)
I've recently learned that Michelle Obama cites Amy Poehler as her best friend https://www.google.com/search?q=michelle+obama+amy+poehler&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb
So, though few seem apprised, Amy and Nick, are poised to become not just another paltry power couple, but a, " Super Power Couple with access to the President."
(It's likely that Ms. Obama has already met her best friend's beau, Nick Kroll, since Nick Kroll's father and brother are responsible for the Obama's security. You see, Kroll O'Gara has protected our presidents for decades. Also, Kroll Ontrack had been the one called to investigate the Passport Breach, awhile back. (Kroll at first deduced it was the work of a few bored government workers, but since then they have blamed it on China. Not big news judging by the absence of articles? I sense a weird blame China pattern here, but that's too complicated ;()
We'll get back to Nick later, but let's first discuss his mother, and brother and father....
The first lady of security( and so SO many other specialties- it defies all common sense -) Lynn Kroll.
Jules's wife, Lynn Korda Kroll,
|Lynn Kroll with Scott Boxenbaum's mother Kharlene! Nick Kroll sends Chuck Boxenbaum's son, Scott Boxenbaum, on very unwholesome missions so this pic is more significant than most would ever guess. oh well.|
is no small fish either. No guppy she!
She is the chairwoman of the powerful UJA( United Jewish Federation,)
|Lynn Kroll (Third from the Right) with Lisa Silverstien(daughter of WTC Larry Silverstien for that's worth to some because it's over my head and I truly hate thinking about conspiracies cause I find most of them impossible to concieve) at one of many UJA functions she and her family attend.|
Lots of fancy names and lots of judges!
2004 Sister City Program of the City of New York, Inc.
Annual Board Meeting, City Hall Governor's Room, 4:00-6:00pm The Sister City Program of the City of New York, Inc. had its annual Board Meeting on October 26, 2004 in the Governor's Room at City Hall. Present were all executive officers of the Sister City Program, which include the Honorable Nancy E. Soderberg, Commissioner Kate D. Levin, the Honorable Marjorie B. Tiven, Ms. Veronica Kelly, Honorary Chairman Mr. William R. Rhodes, and Ms. Maley Ong, Executive Director. Six chairs were also present. They were: the Honorable Frank G. Wisner (Cairo), Lynn Korda Kroll (Jerusalem), Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild (London), Mr. Gonzalo de Las Heras (Madrid), Ms. Adele-Chatfield Taylor (Rome) and Mr. Luis Canela (Santo Domingo).
|That's her with the brooch, behind the lady with the scarf, and nearby ray kelly ,the NYPD commissioner. the photo was taken by the NYPD photo Unit. Is that Karl Rove standing by Kelly???|
The Kroll's have estates all over the world, I've read in one of the many reputable publications that have discussed the Krolls over the years... so it would be hard to track all the donations.. But,from one of the Kroll's many estates, Lynn Kroll has shown herself as a prolific donor to political campaigns. Her contributions from their Rye, NY, estate have been noted.
When not contributing to the campaigns of politicians, Ms. Kroll finds the time to get honored by famed Jewelers such as Van Cleep and Arpel! http://www.patrickmcmullan.com/site/event_detail.aspx?eid=38239
Husband, Jules, and the sons and daughters also gives to all sort of political causes and candidates, and Jules and Jeremy, then secure contracts(or favors) with those who accept such donations.
I thought this was illegal and bespoke blatant corruption. At the very least conflicts of interests should be investigated. At the very least, such incessant palm greases of Senators, Presidents, DA's, judges, politicians, and Law Enforcement officials, paves the way to a "muddying of the waters"... Jule's membership in the ultra Elite "Economists Club" seems significant as wellhttp://www.nndb.com/org/684/000126306/
Apparently, the concern such arrangements/future injustices might have engendered (considering the work the Krolls do,) hasn't become any sort of crisis for the Krolls, and society seems to tolerate the fact that law enforcement throughout the globe has been soiled beyond measure by the Kroll's hold on the private and public sectors. Or is society just oblivious? By design? I do not have exact answers to such questions.
I do know that I witnessed the incentive to fix cases in exchange for a job with Kroll or one of their endless sister brother parent companies... Ask Gregory Boles,Jeffrey Dunn, and John Gregozek how tempting such offers can be.
And, you can't sue them if they harm you. In fact,lawsuits and/or complaints against Kroll have a tendency to get dismissed -- wherein no legal basis exists for such dismissals. A name change here and there has also been a successful way to prevent unwanted scrutiny as Jules Kroll aims to expand and expand his many businesses for over four decades now.
This smart "stay under the radar," approach, has left the vast majority of the public unfamiliar with the name, "Kroll." Only Nick Kroll has hungrily pursued the Spotlight.
My crusade to make them more famous than the Koch Brothers, has been challenging, to say the least: AHEM.
BUT, It's not just pay to play politics, The Krolls are culturally involved, too. (Pay to get a play, movie, or documentary produced politics?)
The Krolls don't just reap non stop massive profits from fear based businesses, and their unending transactions -- Jules and Lynn find the time to be "Philanthropists." They donate considerable sums to public radio and television, and to the "alternative press." I have not yet made sure, but we can guess they donate to theaters, and other forms of "cultural institutions." Billions upon billions of dollars get spread around with these folks.
They have a documentary fund in their name. The Jules and Lynn Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentaries. And, it is is one of the premier funding sources to documentarians. Their productions have gone on to win impressive awards. Ms. Kroll is the Chair not only of the UJA, but of "The foundation for Jewish Culture." Her daughters Vanessa and Dana, also chair or co- chair( or, just plain sit,) on lots of important sounding boards.
Susan Korda(any relation to Lynn Korda Kroll?) had received quite a few grants from this fund and went on to win lots of awards. If Ms. Susan Korda is a relation, no one but me seems to be mentioning this sort of glaring conflict of interest.https://www.facebook.com/americanacademyinjerusalem/photos/a.185483748321581.1073741833.179668242236465/185483791654910/?type=1
BUT, It's not just business, a genius for palm greasing thousands of important palms, bad comedy, security, and culture, guys -- it's education too!
Not satisfied at being at the helm of business and culture, the Kroll's also concern themselves with Education.
The Krolls donate and donate to colleges, and possibly lower education(as opposed to higher education, if you get my drift,)
While donating to assorted colleges throughout the land, they are also the leading( and premier name)- when it comes to college background checks.
Recently, their services seemed to allow a scammer to sneak in our finest schools, but I can't remember which one. Find the link, friends. It was an Ivy League School. Maybe, Kroll was too busy in the high stakes Facebook case where a Ceglia claimed to own half of Facebook- http://www.zdnet.com/blog/btl/facebook-zuckerberg-open-fire-on-ceglia-emails-forged-by-professional-con-artist/49856
to focus on some background checks.
Of course, in that Facebook case, they soon discredited the party-- who couldn't afford their kind of fees. Then, they began to prosecute him criminally. But, I am not up on that recent scary development.
Or perhaps, being preoccupied with being the number 1(and only) supplier of Armored vehicles to our various wars allowed this college admission mishap.
It's doubtful that the Kroll's Canadian Pharmacy software Empire was the reason for that oversight.
Maybe the DOJ will figure it out- as they investigate Kroll for massive fraud, and ripping off taxpayers in the course of their No.1 Background screening business.
My guess and advice to those who might thing justice is coming: Don't count on Kroll being held accountable --when the DOJ is investigating them- Check this OUT-
Perhaps, all those contracts with the DHS and TSA(as well as the other jobs listed below) led to this state of negligence. Perhaps this degree of busy-ness is a recipe for lousy decisions.
Let's not even get into their FEMA and IRS contracts cause it makes one experience a unique kind of nausea. Let us not even broach the Kroll Goverment services division or their Kroll Mid East divisions. Please let us not even have to think about the time frame of their supply of armored vehicles and Dyncorp and ...SOS.

Just a few contracts:
Aside of Kroll being the name to fear and revere, if you want to get into the school of your choice, they can vet you no matter what your real past.They can make sure you don't get in too, no matter your qualifications. In other words, they can make you or break you with one report. One phone call. One word.
You see, Kroll doesn't just hold the key to admissions to the schools of our dreams, they donate money to educational institutions such as John Jay College of Criminal Justice in NY.
The John Jay School of criminal Justice has been a big beneficiary of Kroll's largesse, and even have erected a Jules and Lynn Kroll Atrium.
They throw galas in said Atrium- where they present speakers who speak about :"The future of justice."
The Krolls have been strong supporters of the College and have provided financial support for a number of key initiatives. They have funded the oral history project of College's Lloyd Sealy Library that has captured the experiences of dozens of criminal justice leaders in New York City. They have contributed to the Pre Law Institute which is now sending dozens of John Jay graduates to law schools around the country, and they helped launch the John Jay College Honors Program.
From my strange(and persistent!) perspective: The future of justice, with Kroll as such a major influence, and such a chronicler and funder of future justice -- is a future with fixed cases, fudged reports, and even fixed forensic tests -- as you will see later in this article. A past that led to present, and now a looming future - where only the super rich, or ultra connected, can dream of any semblance of justice. A future that no decent person can even conceive.This decent persons incapacity to conceive has been very fruitful to the Kroll's abilty to dominate/infiltrate so many systems, for so long.
Kroll not only does back ground checks for applicants to schools, and donates to schools- they protect schools.
Kroll secured yet another high profile contract - when they quickly secured a security contract post Sandy Hook massacre-http://www.westport-news.com/news/article/School-board-backs-security-audit-at-twice-4216315.php
If you read that article, you'll see that quite a few parents were perplexed by the pressure put upon them to agree to the high costs asked by Kroll . Also, these hapless parents expressed to the Kroll proponents that Kroll struck them as a dubious choice. They were not aware of them having any history in elementary school school security. Nevertheless, someone capitulated, and Kroll could boast the signing of yet another contract. This time a contract for the most infamous school shooting in our history.The massacre that demanded a new perspective on gun control.
Lynn and Jules Kroll Atrium put to good use? You decide.
Right after scoring that Lucrative Sandy Hook Contract, Kroll still made time to fight for gun control. After the shootings, they volunteered their Lynn and Jules Kroll Atrium at John Jay's college of criminal justice for an event that took a stand against gun violence, and sought to impart the necessity for gun control.
|nick kroll at shooting range|
The gala in the Atrium, featured political heavy hitters such as Kroll's old D.A chum from the famed Morgenthau office- Liz Holzman. You can read more about it here: http://www.jjay.cuny.edu/6187.php
The New York Attorney General, Eric Shneiderman, who received that 25K donation from Jules Kroll listed above,was also an esteemed guest and he gave an impassioned speech, I understand from the article.
In short, the Jules and Lynn Kroll Atrium was transformed from a mere Atrium into a political platform. In other words, the Atrium was no waste of space. No merely decorative Atrium that Kroll Atrium!
I imagine that other ex Deputy DA's Elliot Spitzer(Who investigated AIG and Marsh Mclennan - sister or parent or father companies of Kroll,) and Linda Fairstein(Now a Kroll big wig) were also invited too attend. Jerome Haur and Mike Cherkasky also likely were sent invites. Senator and Schumer and his niece Amy would feel comfortable there but perhaps weren't present.
This stance against gun ownership for citizens-- did not put a dent into the profits of Kroll Corp or Kroll International.
CUNY John Jay is not the only institution of higher learning that benefits from Kroll's largesse. Is a Lynn and Jules Kroll Atrium at CUNY Baruch, far behind?
Maybe, just a regular old Jeremy Kroll gazebo? A Nick Kroll gym?
When Police abuse was alleged at a CUNY N.Y Baruch Occupy event, Kroll filed a report that exonerated those who were said to have abused activists. CUNY Baruch's officials, and the NYPD came out smelling like a falsely accused rose. The activists that sought to expose one percenter malfeasance, in turn, were turned into rabble rousers by the investigators. Investigators who also happen to be notoriously fond of the status quo( since they have profited from fear and unrest to an astounding degree.)
Once again, well evidenced outrages were smothered soon after Jules Kroll's, and his hoardes of "investigators," entered the picture.
Jeremy Kroll deserves his own Atrium!
He and his father (and sisters and other relatives as well as approx 5 k employees all over the globe) and other Krolls own and operate, Altegrity,( amongst countless other acquisitions where they leave the Kroll name out.)
Altegrity is the firm that vetted both Edward Snowden, and the Navy Yard Shooter. Bill Bratton is the Chairman.
Under the JemKroll guise, Jeremy, appears to offer advisory solutions(whatever the frig that means) investment opportunities to defense contractors, security firms, and those similarly situated: http://www.crunchbase.com/person/jeremy-m-kroll
Jeremy M. Kroll is the Managing Member of JEMKROLL Holdings, LLC an investment and advisory firm focused on working with companies in the information technology, security, defense and financial services sectors.

It's sort of a one stop shop for security and law enforcement pros. Earn the big money from working on our behalf, and stay with Jeremy who will invest the fortune we earned you already.
Quite a few of our most famous, and successful law enforcement entities, must feel in debt to the Krolls for the opportunities they have provided them, over the years. So many are employed by DynCorp and Kroll security services.
At John Jay, their stories are even being told(sold?) due to a Kroll's oral history of law enforcement initiative. I'm sure Andrew Cash hopes that his history gets rewritten ASAP as he was a big shot at the DEA, before getting caught doing all kinds of filthy things for massive Ponzi Schemer and Kroll client, Allen Stanford.
Bill Bratton is the Chairman of Kroll, and many other public servants, have counted on and can count on lucrative private sector salaries if they play their cards right. Heads of the CIA , FBI, DEA, Scotland Yard, Mossad and Shin Bet have all had top dog positions with Kroll, throughout the years. Now, JemKroll can invest these Kroll wrung fortunes/ill gotten gains for them too!
Google is not always a good guide- If you don't have reason to dig.
If you do a cursory Google search of Kroll, you very well might come away with the idea that this corporation/empire/behemoth/goliathan nightmare is interested in rooting out corruption. Great efforts are made to make them appear as the good guys. Good guys that are enriched and elevated due to good works. Sure, they take a profit, but that's the American Way.
They are alternately described as prominent and premier and even “trusted.” They are often described as "Number one" in too many fields to imagine. Their areas of expertise seems to know no bounds.Ah, forgot... They are also "preeminent." Google will give you the impress that they fight corruption but my IMPRESSION is that they are the root of incredible amounts of corruption.
Considering how often they are employed by the government of America, and governments all over the globe - that impression of trustworthiness better be accurate. Considering how many court cases are won and lost on their word alone, you'd pray they can be trusted at all.
You would hope their famed "Fraud Reports" are accurate and not motivated by greed and politically motivated(or money motivated,) cover ups.
Considering that they operate forensic labs that conduct drug and urine tests-- trustworthiness is a necessity for the defendants, who must count on them for accurate results, or else face unwarranted devastation.
Can Kroll, and their many acquisitions, parent companies, sister companies, (brother companies and grandpa companies?)cohorts, cronies, and associates- be trusted?
In whatever incarnation, it is safe to say that Kroll is regarded as a premier name, all over the globe -- if you seek risk management, advisory solutions, Compliance, regulation, back ground checks for college admission, Tower Cranes, risk mitigation, risk assessment, Threat assessment, reputational control, school security assessments, Port Authority advisement, drug testing, background checks of all kinds, credit ratings, compliance, factual data, unfactual data(?), due diligence, corporate investigations, asset recovery, litigation support, pharmacy software, humvees, ammunition, private security for Iraq and Afghanistan wars, cyber investigations, data recovery, internet security products, employment readiness, forensic accounting, cyber security, advisory solutions, threat management, threat mitigations, risk analysis, government security clearance, armament to law enforcement, asset recovery, or bond and credit ratings expertise.
Cranes, you ask?
Yes, Kroll has mastered tower cranes too!
And the crane operators after 9/11 were operated by Kroll- no less. And, I'm not even a conspiracy buff, people. Never considered one conspiracy theory until Nick Kroll threw me deep down the rabbit hole. I'm guessing they have blue collar Kroll doing the manual crane work. Haven't discovered any googles on this blue collar division yet.
In fact, I'm so averse to conspiracy theorizing that all these discoveries are making me nauseous. Let's just go with coincidence theory, or divine seeming dot connection- so as not to be met with that dismissive, " conspiracy," label. Scratch that... divine seeming dot connection might come across as needlessly grandiose.
Whatever the case, the "conspiracy nut" label is a favorite retort, with Kroll,when any skepticism is expressed about their astounding sphere of expertise.
Well, Wikispooks describes Kroll as more spooky than trustworthy, in this article about Londener, Ian Puddick:
In essence, Kroll's risk mitigation is some sort of sinister euphemism for -- mess with us or our clients and we will save the assets and reputation of our clients as we destroy yours. Kroll Client and inveterate Ponzi Schemer,Allan Standford, was a satisfied client until the wheels of justice finally ground him down to where he belongs. Kroll kept his massive Ponzi scheme afloat for years and years and I guess that's fine. Ponzi Schemers David Tannenbaum and Scott Rothstien also are satisfied customers of Kroll thought ultimately they paid the prices. Most have gotten away with thier schemes if Kroll was on retainer.
Kroll (secretly) boasts the capacity to turn a civil case into a criminal one, if winning at all costs is the objective, and their client has does not have law and evidence on their side.
If you sue somehow they work for, or even just blog about someone they are hired to protect- they will secure certain corrupted Police to fix the cases by turning what clearly is at most a civil dispute-- into a criminal one. More precisely: Sue our client, and soon you'll be at the mercy of the crimnal justice system, stupid. Kroll waves his paychecks at these bozos do you think oaths mean shit to John Gregozek or the gang at the TMU- when such fancy jobs await. Jail, Bail, Charges, Character assasination, Railroadings. Drop the suit and shut the fuck up.
As the head of Kroll's London Office, Ben Hamilton, told Ian Puddick via pay as you go phone,(and his admission that this occurred was found in discovery in a civil case.) " You don't know who you are fucking with.We have deep deep pockets. We will fuck with you like you have never been fucked before."
My abridged first hand account of a Kroll cluster fuck:http://henypire.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-krolls-excel-at-absolutely.html
One of the most trusted(By Kroll) yet corrupted police units utilized by Kroll has proven to be the LAPD's Threat Management. Jeffrey Dunn, the head, and his crew of bogus stalking expert cops such as John Gregozek
|John Gregozek when not pretending to be a real LAPD Detective|
|LAPD defective Jeffrey Dunn leading a terroristic raid ordered by Nick Kroll|
|A young Jeffrey Dunn before he became pudgy and rapacious|
This unit vigorously works to protect the assets of the one percent, and they use the tax payer's money to carry this mission to completion. They pretend to be a unit that specializes in Stalking, but that is a front. A front that allows them to rub shoulders with celebrities as well as to defraud the federal government for their funding of this sham unit.
The former head and supervisor, Jeffrey Dunn, has retired real early and soon he'll turn that badge into millions.
In 2008, when Nick Kroll's best chance at quick show biz success had gotten sued for a series of vicious life destroying false accussations, and aiming to blacklist talented people for no viable reason, LAPD officers, John Gregozek, James Hoffman, Jeffrey Dunn and the gang, made sure http://open.salon.com/blog/fernsy/2011/12/10/when_the_1_percent_occupied_innocent_people_in_la that Tig Notaro would be free to pull a cancer scam with Nick Kroll, and not lose any face or finances...
Soon, they'll be living large like Gregory Boles, in other words. Boles was the head of that Unit and he know has a senior position at Kroll. I guarantee you(whoever you may be) that Jeffrey Dunn, John Gregozek, James Hoffman and a few others from that sham "TMU," unit will be working for Kroll ASAP. Worst comes to worst, Marty Singer, will hook them up with a glitzy position at Gavin Debecker. Big money in badges, if private security firms are involved.
One of Kroll's other less publicized specialties is "reputational management," which is a soft way to say that they will decimate your opponent, if their fees are forthcoming, or if you are a friend of the family, or an employee(The case with Tig Notaro and Ian Puddick,)
Whistleblower, Kathleen Dickson, seems to confirm this http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=913_1263919101
They will turn your foe into a pervert or a stalker or a criminal or a crazy or all four - if that is what their victory requires. It does not concern Kroll that the foe might have not a trace of criminality, or any hints of perversion in their pasts. They have figured out a way to manufacture the impression of guilt where it does not exist, if this method preserves the assets and reputation of cancer scammers such as Tig Notaro or Ponzi schemers such as Allan Stanford, David Tannenbaum, and Scott Rothstien.
Making false allegations of threats has been a very effective way for them to prosper in this particular specialty. Just feign fear and we'll make your feigned fear look real official.
Once one of their Kroll cops starts submitting these false allegations as fact, the foe is going to lose no matter the truth. If worse comes to worse as one of their employees, Former DEA head,Andrew Cash, said to Allan Standford Via email - " I'll talk to the judge."
It is also safe to say that Kroll is someone you you want on your side, not against you. If they are against you some like LAPD officer Jacqueline Montalvo, and Richard Chang, won't live to tell the tale.https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Richard_Chang
Montalvo's crime? Refusing to lie for a malicious prosecution. Having information that would show Nick Kroll to be a vicious liar who had set up a fraud prosecution as a means to impress his "best comedy friend," Tig Notaro. In the world I'd thought existed, Nick Kroll would be in big big trouble, had Montalvo not died in a mysterious car accident three day after she came in to sign up as witness for the defense.
Chang's crime? Reporting corruption.
But, if you do want them on your side, you will have either pay top dollar, or be friends with one of them, or someone they know.It will be money well spent if the utmost ruthlessness is required.
Methods, M.O's, and Means to Kroll's ends?
This 1998 article in Business week http://www.businessweek.com/stories/1998-11-08/jules-kroll-danger-is-his-business gives a compelling overview:
Drug testing too?
if Kroll is in on the forensic scene- proletariat pee is in jeopardy.
Interestingly, Mr. Landon has to represent himself. That is strange since it’s been proven that the test was wrong . Lawyers should be lining up when such obvious malpractice is evidenced:. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/10/17/stateline-drug-test-labs/2999705/
Kroll sued once more
This is by no means the first lawsuit that involves Kroll, and these lawsuits all allege serious allegations of fraud and malfeasance on their part.Here's a recent one:http://www.thelawyer.com/news/practice-areas/litigation-news/addleshaws-leads-1bn-middle-east-conspiracy-battle/3014651.article
It is claimed that the banker, Majid Al Refai, who was dismissed in 2010 after the alleged discovery of money laundering, had conspired with the other defendants to extort money from the claimants.
The defendants are claimed to have threatened to ruin the bank’s commercial relationships by, amongst other things, spreading damaging rumours in meetings with investors and ratings agencies and publishing damaging and untrue allegations about the claimants in an email circulated to analysts, investors and other third parties
It is safe to say that Kroll keeps its tentacles in many cookie jars.
Jules's youngest son, Nick Kroll, too has forged an impressive career. In comedy, no less. So successful that readers of top line publications are treated to the intimate details of his breakfasts. This former Yeshivah Boy, and Georgetown grad, cracks wise to Ben Pomeroy about some of the gourmet items he chews, in this tasty recent article in Bon Apetit: http://www.bonappetit.com/columns/my-morning-routine/article/nick-kroll-breakfast
His IMDB page evidences that his entrance into comedy was met with immediate TV opportunities.http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1802209/
Huffington post bloggers, and writers for New York's "Vulture," column appear to be fixated on this fellow, and his coterie of “comedy friends.” Every youtube video posted by him or by this coterie of his "comedy friends," is given a full length article treatment-, encouraging the reader to buy what this boy is selling.
The publicly funded and well respected, NPR, is one of
An interesting thing happens, when you are forced to pay attention. You start seeing certain names return with alarming frequency, and that all the articles written about this bunch appear as advertising - not journalistic enterprise. I've recently learned that such surreptitious practices are not acceptable to ethical journalists.
Noah Chestnut seems to view sponsored content being passed off as genuine entertainment journalism as objectionable.
Yet, this objectionable practice is UBIQUITOUS when Nick Kroll is concerned... This strikes me as concerning, but if NPR is okay with it I guess...
I have never watched that show, but was told by a friend how jarring it was to them. Lena Dunham too suddenly tweeted about Notaro .
I assumed it was a natural response by both, but now it appears as more a part of Nick’s attempt to forge a career using the tricks of the trades, he would learn from his super savvy father. I.e. Do favors for others and they will come back to return such favors.Keep people in your debt, and wave opportunity in front of their eyes, and you will replicate my success, Nick.
According to my research, it is a little known fact in comedy’s outer and middling circles, that Nick Kroll is the king of modern comedy. The Kim Jong Ill Jr of comedy might be more like it.
If one watches clips on Comedy Central, for the Kroll Show, they will see that GEICO is the main advertiser. Nutty Nick even had the Neaderthal he played in Cavemen named, "Nick".
Most articles written about this League show( that once boasted about having an ensemble cast,) appear to single Nick out as the scene stealer and stand out. I have not seen this show yet, but I would bet all the money Nick stole from me( and the State of California,) that this is just a a case of more of his faked press.
Grantland got into some warm water when they didn’t make it clear to their readers that they were promoting, and not simply reporting: http://theumpires.quora.com/Grantland-should-learn-from-The-Atlantic
You'd figure he was some great talent, if you didn't know any better. And, the chance anyone would know any better are slim. A sucker is born every minute seems to underlie his business model.
Recently, the mischievous Kroll appears to have been part of a prank that was taken seriously by the humor impaired: http://www.avclub.com/article/ken-marino-either-got-arrested-for-punching-nick-k-84848
Nick told an adoring, Amos Barshad, in New York Magazine that his father is proud of him for his “entrepreneurial” approach to the comedy business http://www.vulture.com/2009/10/from_caveman_to_actual_man_nic.html
Jules Kroll is on a roll!
Despite Jeremy and Nick’s already impressive resumes, it is the older Kroll who has the most intriguing back story. The story(as told by The New Yorker, New York Times , Wall Street Journal,Wikipedia, The Atlantic, and other esteemed publications) starts normally enough:
At Cornell, Jules Kroll was selected to join the highly secretive and super elite, Quill and Dagger Society. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quill_and_Dagger
During that period, he worked as a Deputy District Attorney in Manhattan too. But, a career in modest profit public service was not to be.
This intoxicating mix of an elite education, and the ability to fearlessly face the underbelly, that had stolen from him and his family, would be credited with the beginning of his long and highly illustrious career in the private sector.As would his resounding defeat in two political elections. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/2886168/The-dossier-on-Kroll.html
While before the Private eye business had seemed the domain of uncouth former cops, Jules’s Ivy League polish would transform that image in the eyes of those sophisticated enough, connected enough, or rich enough to have come across even the availability of such services. Mention Kroll to any one percenter, certain members of law enforcement, and you won’t get the vacant look you might face if mentioned them to the other 99 percent, or those unfamiliar with Kroll's influence on so many legal concerns.
The conspiracy theorists couldn’t let dead Presidents lie, it seems, and controversy had reared its ugly head, again. The speculation over the notion of the one shooter theory would not be stanched. Even after the Warren Commission had submitted their findings, some in the media and elsewhere, insisted on complicating matters.
Such non complacents would include Bob Vernon, an NBC producer, and James Files -- a man now serving a life sentence for shooting at police.Though, much has been shown that disputes the police's take on that case. Apparently, many others with solid credentials found Files version about his participation in the Kennedy assassination- credible, as well.
But, at the last minute a man, Ed Epstein, was brought in as a consultant. Novak would later accuse Epstein of being a CIA operative. As would many others who had good reason to know such things. It appears that Kroll was hired by Epstein to investigate the veracity of File’s claims and that he did so, and then filed a report with NBC.
The report called into question File’s claims, and the show was dropped soon thereafter. The entire two hour production was scrapped on Kroll's purported findings alone.
Those findings: Files could not have been in Dallas on November 22nd 1963, according to phone records. And, that Files had made up some nutty story of a twin brother and File’s wife had attested that no such brother existed.
Such prestige doesn’t come cheap so only the VIP’s could afford such “service.” VIP’s or those like Tig Notaro who could offer Nick Kroll his own Largo show and an entrée into the world of his rich boy fantasies.
When a tape was rumored to exist that cast a bad light on the Palace,“The Diana Tapes” Kroll were hired to find them. They would be tasked with rebuilding Enron even. Nokia and other major corporations such as Chevron also .Only some of their major coups are listed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jules_B._Kroll
Both hungry freelancers with good reputations and big shot journalists. Here’s the non- chronological list of just of some of Kroll’s jobs and chores from 1968 till the present.
(Not sure what the last one is about. Any ideas why they are now the vetters of our government contracters? Boy oh Boy does Kroll get around. This begs the question... or a few questions. Such as, why the hell is Kroll in charge of vetting NSA contractors considering their actions in Brazil . Standford, FDA, Newtown, Ian Puddick, the Rothstein Matter, the fact that after the Consent Degree was lifted from the LAPD, their reputation only got worse, and that some official was so disgusted with them that they filed a rip off report for their mishandling and abuse of the San Diego taxpayers.
Why are jurisdictions all over America, and governments all over the world putting stock in these “Kroll reports.” So much stock, that our jails are filled with those who were tested positive for drugs on their word, even. So much so that millions of lives have been adversely affected by their “findings.”
And, why did I become some scholar on this Kroll Dynasty. I would call them the Shmuck Dynasty but Shmuck is way too nice an insult. Why, you may wonder- Well, Nick Kroll’s name was used as a witness when Notaro went to seek a restraining order. Then, he was listed on police reports and we wondered who is this guy and why is he lying like this. Then, when I wouldn’t plea, and the case had to go to trial, Nick Kroll showed up again and submitted the most vicious and false statement to the prosecutors.Statements that could have landed me in jail for 7 years, had I not gotten lucky enough to have the witnesses agree to come forth.
But, it was only till two months ago that I realized who he was and who is father was. And, that John Gregozek and Jeffrey Dunn were working on orders of Nick Kroll. No matter the law or the facts I was to lose and lose and lose. Not fair to the extreme. Once I did realize this, well you can see…. Dig dig dig. https://www.nccrimecontrol.org/index2.cfm?a=000003,000014,000799,001734
I have been accused of being an anti Semite for writing this...Well, that is too much of a joke to take seriously. I am extremely Jewish (ex yeshiva girl ,fluent hebrew, Mother a holocaust survivor), and was nearly neo-con, before I learned better just a few months ago. This has nothing to do with Jewishness other than the fact that I can't get over how corrupt some Jews are and the ensuing immense horror and disgust that Jews would act THIS WAY.
Recent discovery that Nick Kroll not only ripped off the taxpayers in my insane malicious persecution, but ripping off tax payers seems to be a pattern with them.
