The Mysterious Saul Alinsky

In 1971, I suddenly found myself back in Urbana, Illinois, pretty much penniless, and the town had sure changed in the two years I’d been away. There wasn’t much work listed in the paper, although my former employer, The News-Gazette, had an ad for distributors. You had to have your own vehicle and several minor routes were up for grabs. I set-up an interview, but when I showed up, I found myself talking to Frank Sowers, the same guy who’d hit my buddy Doug Blair with a baseball bat, and been one of the toughest dudes in my class (although he was a greaser and I was a longhair). If Frank recognized me, he certainly didn’t say so, and I knew he was never going to offer me a job.

Saul Alinsky.

The only other option was working as a community organizer for a new group that was canvassing the area. They welcomed me with open arms and gave me a just-published book to read: Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky. It was their bible. I really enjoyed this book immensely and it was the first time I’d ever heard of the Dutch Provo movement that had been a wild success in the Netherlands. One of the first things I’d do after becoming editor of High Times was to commission the first history of the Provos written in English.

This community group was a bit strange, however. We were traveling around to targeted communities and squeezing small donations by going door-to-door. The main pitch involved lowering the electric bill, something the group had already managed to do in other areas. I remember hearing the names “Ralph Nader” and “Mark Green” a lot from our supervisor. Mark arrived one day and gave a scheduled pep talk, before retiring to a private corner to have a long, whispered conversation with our supervisor.

I instantly became the star fundraiser, which meant I was also making the most money since everything was based off commissions. The easiest touches were widows who lived alone and who were obviously starved for human companionship. For them, an hour of conversation was worth a $20 donation. The photo on the left was taken during this period and shows the outfit I wore, so you can see what I looked like while I was shaking loose change off these ladies.

There was a strange, predatory vibe to this operation and I soon began to feel like a Moonie. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I decided to bail after two or three weeks, despite the easy pay, which really upset the supervisor. He had some higher-ups to answer to, and without me on board, I guess he didn’t think he was going to make his monthly quota. He even tracked me down at my parent’s house and begged me to come back, which made his operation seem all that more creepy to me. I had a strong feeling the “green” movement was being hijacked by the FBI or CIA.

There was one thing about Alinsky that really bothered me: he preached the ends justified the means. In a way, he was the Ayn Rand of the socialist movement. When I saw Obama and Hillary both track back to Alinksy organizations, it really makes me wonder if he wasn’t operating on another level, dancing through raindrops, just another spook on a secret mission with a hidden agenda.

Alinksy was a poor Russian Jew in Chicago when he unexpectedly got offered a fellowship at the University of Chicago to study criminology, and since he had zero background in that field, one wonders how he landed such a cushy deal? I guess you know the University of Chicago was created by the Rockefeller Trust, and also birthed the warmongering neo-conservative movement that fomented wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that bankrupted the nation.

Right after getting that fellowship, Alinksy spent two years hanging out with the Al Capone gang, then being run by Frank Nitti, as Al had income tax problems to deal with. Alinksy was allowed complete access to the gang, including its financial secrets. “Once, when I was looking over their records,” he told Playboy. “I noticed an item listing a $7,500 payment for an out-of-town killer. I called Nitti over and I said, ‘Look, Mr. Nitti, I don’t understand this. You’ve got at least 20 killers on your payroll. Why waste that much money to bring somebody in from St. Louis?’ Frank was really shocked at my ignorance. ‘Look, kid,’ he said patiently, ‘sometimes our guys might know the guy they’re hitting, they may have been to his house for dinner, taken his kids to the ball game, been the best man at his wedding, gotten drunk together. But you call in a guy from out of town, all you’ve got to do is tell him, ‘Look, there’s this guy in a dark coat on State and Randolph; our boy in the car will point him out; just go up and give him three in the belly and fade into the crowd.'”

I don’t know about you, but I find it odd Alinsky, a criminology student at the University of Chicago, was given this sort of access to information, not to mention his lack of morality, even to the point of not understanding the morals of the Sicilian brotherhood of death he was studying.

I’d have to do a lot more research on Alinsky and his organization before I could come to any conclusions, but I do find him to be a somewhat mysterious character.

Who’s Obama’s Daddy?

I don’t watch much TV anymore since I much prefer Netflix and Amazon Prime so I can program my own entertainment, and when I checked into Amazon last night, I noticed the number two watched movie right now is about President Obama’s alleged real father, a communist party organizer named Frank Marshall Davis. The film also goes into great detail regarding Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham, and his long association with the CIA. Although the mainstream media is ignoring this feature-length documentary, it’s quickly becoming one of the most-watched films on the internet.

The film was made by a mysterious figure named Joel Gilbert, who, far as I know, is no relation to Josh Gilbert, who made AKA Tommy Chong. Until now, Gilbert was mostly known for making low-budget documentaries about Bob Dylan. In this regard he reminds me of A.J. Weberman, who was obsessed with decoding Dylan’s work as well as inspecting his garbage. Since Dylan once captured the center of energy on the counterculture revolution, he remains an important icon in the minds of some baby boomers like me. Weberman would later accuse Howard Hunt of being one of the three tramps in Dallas when JFK was assassinated and wrote a book that unveiled the CIA’s involvement in the assassination for the first time, although Hunt was just a rabbit hole. Hunt was in Dallas that day, but as an observer, and it was James Angleton’s idea to dangle him as the “paymaster” and brains behind the assassination. That was a deflection away from Ted Shackley, who worked under Angleton and really served in that role.

Which brings me to this current film. I strongly suspect some very powerful organization, maybe even the CIA, is behind this current documentary. It’s an exercise in fear-mongering and is being hyped by Alex Jones, who we all know is a disinfo plant, right?

However, there’s obviously a lot of truth being revealed in the film. After watching it, I suspect Obama’s real father may have even been an undercover secret agent himself, as communism was a scam from day one, fomented from within Freemasonry and supported by some of the world’s richest bankers. Just as Hitler had to be brought in to disrupt the Weimar Republic’s dangerous emerging democracy, Lenin was brought in to shift the direction of the Russian Revolution away from democracy and into a dictatorship that could easily be controlled.

Also, I’ve always suspected the Weather Underground was an op to turn the non-violent counterculture revolution toward violence. In situations like this, the bombs are usually provided by an FBI informant, similar to the way the FBI disrupted the Earth First! movement in the 1980s.

Obviously, the film was engineered to hide the truth in plain site. And someone paid for millions of copies of the DVD to be distributed free to the battleground states as Obama was running for his second term. The film plays on old fears that a communist conspiracy is secretly taking power in this country, when, in fact, the real conspiracy is that communism itself is a complete scam, a managed dialectic devised to capture the center of energy on any emerging democratic movements around the world.

The Communist Party of the USA was created by John Reed, who came from a very rich family high up in the oligarchy. When Reed went to Mexico, he wrote a book about Pancho Villa and his army, and managed to never once mention marijuana, even though it was probably Pancho’s favorite substance since he disapproved of alcohol but could almost always be found with a stogie in his mouth. Reed knew this stogie was not tobacco, but failed to mention the importance of cannabis to that revolution, even though Villa’s marching song (La Cucaracha) was about marijuana.

If you look closely into the Communist movement in the US, you’ll find a lot of rich people and bankers behind the scenes. Setting up dialectical forces is what it’s all about because if you don’t set up these forces, you run the risk of a real opposition being set up against you.

By the way, the Obama story actually started four years ago, watch this:

The Lennie Tristano Appreciation Society

As long as Mitt Romney is giving up some tax returns, I might as well confess to being involved in three different secret societies in my lifetime. The first one (The Roaring 21 Club) has already been discussed in detail on this blog, and was responsible for me getting marked as a “problem” when I entered the 7th grade, meaning my classes were filled with the dumbest and most violent people of my age group. All because I was inspired by West Side Story to create a gang in the 6th grade.

It wasn’t until nearly twenty years later, around 1980, that I found myself unexpectedly involved in fomenting another secret society, the Lennie Tristano Appreciation Society, a very select society that often threw wild ceremonies at my Upper West Side apartment. Some still consider these events as being the finest parties in New York of their time, always attracting a diverse crowd of industry insiders, emerging rap stars from the South Bronx, and minor downtown celebrities.

At one time, we even launched a serious plan to create our own magazine, as Rolling Stone was considered lame and politically-compromised. I had Mary Titus make some cartoons for a flyer we distributed at the No Nukes Concert in Battery Park. I probably have some of those flyers around in my files somewhere.

Despite the obscure jazz name, we were mostly Clash groupies at the time, and sat in the front row of the balcony for that band’s first New York performance at the Palladium. The Cramps were the opening act, and a member of our society was their manager for a while. I remember right before the show started, he went backstage to give a pep talk to the Cramps, as this was their big breakthrough moment.

The magazine we wanted to create was going to be called USA, by the way. (I should have registered that trademark while I had the chance.) Click on the illo on the left and you’ll see “USA” on the cover. We took our collective talents to Horizon magazine as freelancers for a while, and could have transformed that publication back to its glory days had the owner just turned it over to our complete control, but that didn’t happen and the publication soon died.

In all honesty, I didn’t even know who Lennie Tristano was when the society was founded, and had to immediately go study up on him. I was the most musically ignorant person in our society, although the first to get deeply into rap music. How strange I’d later develop a theory of the counterculture as being birthed in Congo Square and rooted entirely in improvisation. Miles Davis was my favorite jazz artist at the time, but Lennie Tristano was one of the most original composers in jazz history, and improv was his specialty. He was a white guy who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the black titans of his era. And that’s just the sort of vibe we wanted for our society since we were four white guys who were into garage rock, hip hop, funk, and just about every other style of music. We saw the Mothership land at the Apollo, sat in the front row for Patti Smith at the Paladium and watched in awe as Lou Reed verbally assaulted Clive Davis at the Bottom Line, with Clive sitting a few seats away. Attending the annual Peter Schumann spectacle in Vermont every August was a big ceremony for us. Schumann created the Burning Man formula, although he never gets credit for it.

Yesterday the society had its first meeting in over 20 years, and it felt great, although the members failed to sign in on the wall of fame and things got a bit rushed at the end. Some day, I’ll clue you in on the origins of my third and fourth secret societies, the Temple Dragon Crew, and the Pot Illuminati.

The Manchurian Candidate

Richard Condon was a publicist for Walt Disney, who was a paid informant and eventually special secret agent for the FBI for 26 years. Walt was a close associate of J. Edgar Hoover. They were both devote Freemasons and both eventually rose to the 33rd degree. I don’t know if Condon was a Freemason, but he obviously garnered a glimpse into the oligarchy, as evidenced in his greatest work.

We know Disney submitted scripts to Hoover, who was a master of propaganda. Hoover carefully created his own myth as the greatest law enforcement fighter in America, even to the point of destroying careers that threatened to eclipse him (just ask Melvin Purvis). Disney also allowed Hoover to make changes in his scripts to keep their messages in line.

Condon must have found out about MK/Ultra, because he wrote a shattering novel on mind control (The Manchurian Candidate) long before most Americans knew anything about it. It featured the recent brainwashing of American prisoners of war in Korea (many of whom made anti-US statements shortly after being captured), but the actual technologies shown in the book and movie were pioneered in Nazi Germany and then imported into the USA and Canada by the CIA. In all likelihood, Lee Harvey Oswald was an early victim of that program. The hypnosis probably wasn’t strong enough to get Oswald to kill a man he deeply respected, which may be why Oswald wasn’t a shooter (and he couldn’t shoot that good anyway), but if you look close at his history, you’ll find CIA mind control doctors got a hold of Oswald before he was a teenager. There’s an important element in Condon’s book: His title character had no father, just like Oswald. You’ll find this is the one essential element in the construction of Manchurian Candidates. Why? Because the father sigil is the most important element in a man’s psyche, and if you can capture that sigil, you’ll have your Manchurian Candidate.

The book was a sensation in Washington DC, but no one expected anyone to make it into a film. It only happened because Sinatra loved the book, and may have even been introduced to it by JFK while they were still buddies (before the president broke off contact because he and his brother were planning a war on the Sicilian men-of-honor secret society). The first thing Sinatra did when the film fell into place was call JFK, and the first thing JFK wanted to know was: “Who’s going to play the mother?” In the book, the mother mainlines heroin in between meetings with the Pope and sexual encounters with her robot son. The mother is also a prominent member of the Order of the Eastern Star, a secret society created for the wives and daughters of high ranking Freemasons, although that detail was left out of the film. The headquarters of that order, by the way, is a temple located on DuPont Circle in Washington, which leads me to suspect the DuPont family may have an interest in Freemasonry.

After too many people got wind of MK/Ultra, an investigation followed in Congress, one carefully controlled by Rockefeller, whose family probably had the most to lose if the shit hit the fan. Fortunately for him, Richard Helms burned all the files in his fireplace, and never paid anything for committing that crime. What little we know comes mostly from financial records Helms missed.

One thing you can be sure of: these technologies have been off-loaded to private corporations and taken out of the country. I would surmise that most, if not all, of those terrorists involved in 9/11 were under some form of brainwashing.

The film was made in 1962, but was pulled almost immediately, as it carried too many connections to the JFK assassination. In the book, the assassin is supposed to kill the president so the vice president can assume power. Sound familiar?

The book is more complicated that most believe, in my opinion. Although it paints Marco as the hero, in fact, you can also read him as just another Manchurian Candidate whose job requires baby-sitting the assassin and making sure the job takes place correctly, which involves changing the target at the last minute to kill the assassin’s mother, as she has slipped off the leash herself. Supposedly, Marco just happens to run into a beautiful woman on a train, who speaks in code, forms a sudden attraction to him, and just happens to have a close friend in military intelligence, who just happens to set up a huge operation to assist Marco overnight. This women could be Marco’s CIA handler. Watch the scene from the movie below and see if you agree. The entire film changes radically in meaning.

Maybe Condon knew Communism was just a huge scam and the Cold War was being mined for profit, just like the war on terror. He certainly left all the necessary clues. By the way, avoid the remake of a few years ago, which really sucks and contains none of the flair or suspense of the original.

Dark Heart of Nazi Power

The Allies could have taken Hitler out of power early on if they’d just worked with the Nazi resistance inside Germany. Instead they waited until half the world’s treasure had been stolen before launching the final assault on fascism.

The two greatest military theorists, Sun Tzu and Carl von Clausewitz, both understood the importance of telepathic energies and the group mind. War is a spiritual endeavor involving ritual death between opposing brotherhoods. Both Sun Tzu and von Clausewitz preferred non-violent solutions when possible since they considered war the last resort of politics and merely an extension of politics. The fascist regimes could only expand so far before collapsing, and it was obvious they’d already bitten off more than they could chew after Hitler invaded Stalingrad (instead of seizing the Russian oil fields) and the US threw its full economy into the war effort.

That’s why it’s so hard to understand why—in the final stages of the war—did the Allies decide to kill as many civilians as possible, raining down bombs on the German and Japanese cities while ignoring military targets? Maybe it was blood lust, or an attempt to crush the spirit of those nations to teach them a lesson. But the average person in Germany or Japan had little control over their situation, and I’m sure many were appalled by the vicious nature of their regimes, yet they were held fully accountable. Even the Sicilian men-of-honor avoid killing civilians when they can. Somehow, I think a lot of that bombing was just intended to make money for the munitions industry.

The dark heart of Nazi power really resided in IG Farben, Europe’s dominant corporation, yet the headquarters of this company was never touched during the war. Even more suspicious, immediately after the war, the Allied command moved into IG Farben to begin setting up the post war environment. Meanwhile the stolen loot was all quietly disappeared, while the most valuable Nazi operatives in science and in the military were given fake identities and allowed to escape. Many would end up in the soon-to-be created CIA. (Just think of it as the Gestapo under a different name, because that’s what it is.) Others would form the basis of NASA, and lead the race to the moon. The dark arts that were studied by the Nazis were simply transplanted into the United States, and you can see those arts in the JFK assassination, MK-Ultra, Vietnam’s Phoenix Program, Guantanamo Bay Prison, and our invasions of countries around the world since WWII, if you care to look.

The SS were Hitler’s brainwashed elite. What many people don’t know, however, is that the SS had divisions in other countries, some of whom became the foundation for NATO forces in those countries after the war. Meanwhile, the German people died from starvation by the millions, so thoroughly had their economies been destroyed. No one ever talks about these dead people, even though they were trapped between a rock and a hard place.

And this is why a real investigation of 9/11 is so crucial to heal our country’s ailing psyche. The dark Nazi heart embedded deep in our Pentagon must be fully examined, although it will not be easy. The President, however, is the only person in the world who has this power, which is why I hope if Obama does get re-elected, even if he is a stooge of the CIA, that he will slip off the leash and order a new investigation and actually go after the oligarchy behind that Pentagon’s dark heart. Since WWII, the United States has been responsible for millions of deaths around the world, most of which was fomented at the behest of the oil cartel. This is a terrible legacy all Americans share because none of these deaths were necessary. Unfortunately, there’s really no rational justification for our invasions of Vietnam, Cambodia, Iraq or Afghanistan, or for our meddling in the affairs of South and Central American countries, all of which has profited Wall Street immensely at the cost of human lives, which is why I think all Americans need to look more closely at the heroes inside Germany who resisted the Nazis, because eventually we are going to need some people like that to come to our country’s rescue.

The Restless Conscience

I spent the third grade in Bavaria because my dad was on a sabbatical from Harvard University (where he’d been squeezed out of a job due to politics and wanted to take advantage of every perk before moving on).

Many Americans are embedded with a deep hatred of everything German, especially ones that are part Jewish like me, but I proudly drove a Volkswagen and have an entirely different take on the German people as victims of bankers who put Hitler into power. Hitler came in as a “National Socialist,” a wolf in sheep’s clothing if ever there was one. Many of the leading industrialists and royal families around the globe welcomed and assisted Hitler to power, people like Henry Ford, Joseph Kennedy and the King of England, who was forced to abdicate after he was discovered secretly plotting with the Nazis. Standard Oil sold fuel to Germany throughout the war, using cut-outs in neutral countries.

After the Reichstag fire, Hitler set aside all law, and went straight to the Vatican to sign a mutual admiration agreement that guaranteed the Vatican would silence Catholic critics of Hitler in exchange for Nazi protection of all German Catholics. Bavaria is Germany’s largest state and deeply Catholic, home to both Sophie Scholl and Count von Stauffenberg. The rest of Germany is mostly Lutheran, and it was easy for Hitler to install a Nazi bishop in charge of that religion.

We lived in Munich, which is pronounced “Myuun-chin” and sounds more like the little people from the Wizard of Oz than the harsh Mun-ick, which is how outsiders say it. I had a wonderful Bavarian accent and was fully fluent before I left, but lost almost all of it quickly after returning home.

I was too young to get into Auschwitz, but remember my mom throwing up as she stepped out the gate. Once she entered a gas chamber, the vibe was too heavy and she had to leave immediately. She was half-Jewish but deeply non-religious, although she pretended to be Lutheran while raising us, an agreement made with my  German grandparents.

On the week-ends, we climbed the alps and visited the incredible castles that abound throughout Bavaria, certainly one of the most beautiful spots on earth.

Hitler’s second major move after his treaty with the Vatican, by the way, was to set up a rich Polish Jew named Sam Cohen with an agreement to move Jews to Palestine, leaving behind most of their wealth, of course. Sam was also profiteering no doubt. The Nazi war machine was largely constructed inside I.G. Farben, known around Europe as “the cartel.” Farben and Standard Oil owned a lot of stock in each other and were mirror images only on different sides of the globe. The Warburg family was one of the biggest stockholders, and James Warburg was put in charge of Farben operations in the New World. He had offices in New York City and Washington, and was the principle financial advisor to President Franklin Roosevelt prior to the war.

The Nazi velvet glove slipped off during Krystalnacht when the wolf lost his sheep’s clothing. To give an idea of the mindset at the time, the general in charge of the 9th Infantry Division put his troops on alert, as he expected to be called into Berlin to stop the destruction of Jewish property. The 9th would remain a hotbed of Nazi resistance throughout the war. Over twenty assassinations on Hitler were attempted.

The sad reality is that numerous attempts were made to get British assistance to arrest or assassinate Hitler, but England refused all help and maintained the fiction throughout the war that there was no internal resistance to Hitler, when thousands, many high up in the military and oligarchy and even the royal houses of Bavaria (although all royal privileges had been set aside by the Weimar Republic) were all praying for an end to the Nazi regime.

Even more astonishing, the Nazi resistance provided detailed war plans to the British throughout the war, even warning them of the invasions of Poland, France and the Netherlands, but the British told no one and did nothing to mobilize opposition. This information certainly puts a new face on the Blitzkrieg that cemented Hitler into a manufactured consensus. After those nearly bloodless yet successful invasions, all opposition was driven deep underground.

There’s an amazing documentary that you can watch on Amazon Prime or Netflix, titled, The Restless Conscience. I highly recommend it, as well as the German films on Sophie Scholl and Count Stauffenberg, one titled The White Rose, and the other, Stauffenberg. The heroic effort of the anti-Nazi resistance and its martyrs need to be more celebrated.

Guide to the Disinfo Matrix

I was on facebook the other day when one of my unknown friends posted a link to a book titled Big Oil by Dean Henderson. It didn’t have a single review on Amazon so I thought it was something new. In the promo material, some person from South America said it deserved the Pulitzer Prize. It was super expensive at $25, but often the most reliable books on deep politics cost money, so I thought I was ordering a real book and bought it without really looking into the author at all.

Unfortunately, when the book arrived yesterday, I quickly discovered it was filled with misinformation and quoted people like David Icke and William Cooper as if they were serious journalists, which they are not. I opened it at random and came to a quote saying Allen Dulles was a member of Skull & Bones, a secret society at Yale, when, in fact, Dulles had gone to Princeton. Soon, I realized Dean Henderson is either a knowing agent of disinfo or a brainwashed stooge of the disinfo matrix (more on that later).

Paul Krassner, the dean of underground journalism, began printing conspiracy research in the 1960s in his national magazine, The Realist, forging a trail few in journalism would ever follow. Pretty soon, researchers were crawling out of the woodwork and sending Paul stories. Even today, when he no longer publishes conspiracy research, these characters are still peppering him with their nutty theories. I know because Paul forwards the wackiest stuff to me, as if to say, “see how crazy your compatriots are?” Many of these people are undoubtedly plants. Of course, the most famous of these characters was Mae Brussell, whose research seemed authentic at first, but pretty soon Paul realized Mae was leading him down a rabbit hole and connecting dots that didn’t really connect, leading him on a wild goose chase to nowhere. That’s when Paul stopped trusting conspiracy researchers [Paul adds: I felt it necessary not to have predisposed perception, to distinguish coincidence from conspiracy, and not let what might be perceived as evidence be tainted by ego or agenda]. After most people get burned after falling in a rabbit hole, it becomes really difficult to get past the noise to the real info that noise is designed to conceal. The game is to sheep-deep all deep political research as crackpot nonsense by flooding the field with crack-pot nonsense. Unfortunately, this game has worked very well for over 50 years now.

I’m too old and too wise to fall for this crapola, although I can’t say the same for a lot of people I meet, who seem to gobble up the latest pronouncements by Icke, Rense, Jones and the rest of the captains of disinfo. Henderson’s book wasn’t just sourced through these dubious characters, though. He also quoted a number of more reliable conspiracy researchers, some of whom have suspicious axes to grind. In this list, I’d include anyone from the Lyndon LaRouche organization, Alex Constantine, and Mike Ruppert. These are probably disinfo agents, but at least they’re journalists who deal with verifiable facts and not baseless rumor and innuendo. The rabbit holes they lead you into (like Ruppert’s “Peak Oil” scam), are more credible than the shapeshifting aliens in Icke’s manifestos, although ultimately, I don’t think these sources can be trusted any more than their obviously crackpot counterparts.

After I got Henderson’s book, I learned he’s a regular on the Icke/Rense/Jones disinfo circuit. He also seems to be an activist in the Green movement. The environmental movement is heavily seeded with agents because the oil companies have to keep in eye on environmentalists to make sure they don’t do anything damaging to their bottom line, which is why they’ve installed an oligarchy insider like Al Gore as their chief lightening rod. It’s a dialectical game, just like almost everything else that goes on inside deep politics.

Once you get past those two levels of disinfo, you get to real journalists with no visible axes to grind, a list that includes Antony Sutton, Gary Webb, Steve Kangas, Daniel Hopsicker, Dick Russell, Alfred McCoy, Danny Casolaro, and Peter Dale Scott. These are the authors you have to read and if I find their names and books in a bibliography, then I know I’m dealing with a serious researcher. The more serious a researcher is, however, the more ignored they will become over time. Deep political research is a great way to “break your rice bowl,” which is how they put it to Antony Sutton when he veered off the designated rails. You can put me in this category too, as I once had a flourishing journalism career, but after I began publishing deep political research in High Times, I soon realized I no longer had a journalism career. My book, The Octopus Conspiracy, got exactly one review when it came out—in a local publication in Woodstock, New York.

Shortly after 9/11, Retired General Mirza Aslam Beg, former chief of staff of the Pakistani Army, said 9/11 was an operation of the American intelligence agencies. Beg also claimed Wikileaks is a tool of psy-war, and not a real whistle-blowing operation, and that Osama bin Laden died in 2009, and that the Seal Team killed a lookalike stand-in. Of course, researchers like me know Beg is probably telling the truth.

Oh, and by the way, I left my review of Big Oil on Amazon. It wasn’t very favorable.

Is Conspiracy Theory the True Road to Enlightenment?

“Enlightenment’s not like ringing a bell. Some days you can stone people with your presence, some days not.” Stephen Gaskin

I used to wonder if all this deep political research I was doing was really worth it. Sometimes, when I’d try to clue my elders into the secret society network that controls real global power, they’d get depressed having to confront all that corruption for the first time.

Then I realized the case on the JFK assassination was closed. All you had to do was read the testimony of mafia figures and Cuban exiles who worked on that CIA project, presumably initiated at the request of the oligarchy, and not by some rouge agents either.

A peaceful calm came over me when I realized I no longer had to stay abreast of all the latest twists and turns. Conspiracy theory is 99% disinfo and 1% honest investigations. More than anything, it involves avoiding rabbit holes, like chemtrails and “we never landed on the moon.” These are the chaff and flares ejected to fool heat-seeking missile researchers.

The latest rabbit hole is 9/11 was a fusion of OTO/Freemasonic black magic rituals designed to penetrate the psyche of the nation.

I’d prefer an analysis of 9/11 based on the Harry Potter franchise, the most valuable media asset in the United Kingdom right now because I think Harry Potter contains more powerful magic than Aleister Crowley at this point.

Every generation shapes its own magic and I don’t subscribe to the theory a black magic cult has been running the world continuously for 2,000 years. Black magic cults are everywhere, usually hidden as white magic cults. LaRouche, Hubbard and Rev. Moon created three of the biggest of our time, but they still don’t approach whatever black magic cult is embedded in the corrupted Pentagon and CIA.

Rule number one: Never talk about the order.

Rule number two: Obey the order.

These societies are designed to hand down power from one generation of the oligarchy to the next and most of the people certainly don’t feel they’re committing any crimes or doing anything other than protecting their family’s interests.

We get a picture of the dark side of these societies by looking at the Sicilian men-of-honor society, whose initial induction ceremony involved black robes with hoods and a human skull with a stiletto driven through it. There were no complex OTO or masonic-style rituals, though. Just a pinprick on the finger, a few drops of blood, and the sacred oath to obey and conceal. Oh, and if you ever broke this vow, you gave the society permission to kill you as your just punishment.

Although we’ve never been inside the Bonesmen’s tomb during their initiation ceremonies, we’ve heard audio tapes from activities in the courtyard, which sound pretty hilarious. Ritual death seems to be involved there as well, just as it is with the masonic societies. I’m not familiar with the Mormon’s version, but given that cult’s rapid penetration of the FBI, I suspect ritual death may be a part of their initiation rites as well.

So why all this continuous reference to Crowley and Pike as if their ideas are actually driving the show? A huge part of disinfo is creating the false enemy.

Someday the corruption inside this network is going to be exposed because someone on the inside is going to make a serious run at exposing the hoodwink. But it will probably be preceded by a fake messiah acting the role of do-gooder.

I Feel Entitled…oh so entitled!

Being “entitled” means you have a right to something. As an American citizen, I have a lot of rights, many of which are being trampled upon by guys like Mitt Romney, who just don’t “get it.”

In fact, I should be part owner of the Federal Reserve, instead of the cabal of old money families that secretly rules that system and come to think of it, I’d like my share of the profits.  I’m also part owner of the United States of America, one of the richest nations on earth in terms of natural resources, which makes me a wealthy person if I can just get my fair shake of the plunder of those resources.

As a citizen, I’m entitled to a free education, hopefully one that seeks to empower me and develop the best of my abilities. Unfortunately, we have a dis-functional educational system rapidly falling far behind other nations because we’d rather give money to the Military-Industrial Complex than provide for our children’s future.

I’m entitled to Freedom of Religion, Freedom to Assemble and Free Press, although my Rainbow Family Gatherings are constantly harassed and the entire global media seems to be owned by around 7 or 8 multi-national corporations at this point all with interlocking boards of directors. I remember a time when there was a “free press,” but that really only applies to people that own one.

It only takes one bad event to wipe out the average American these days. This can be an accident, lawsuit, divorce, bankruptcy or any other tragedy. Many never climb out of the hole these events create and need assistance. People in America should never go to bed hungry or have to sleep in the streets. Considering the sort of lifestyles now being led by the super rich, it’s unconscionable to refuse assistance to the down-and-out among us.

I believe the old money fat cats who run this country from behind closed doors have been fleecing us blind for years, stealing our money, destroying our economic futures, fighting wars we don’t want, and always sticking us with the bill at the end of the day. So, yes, Mitt, I’d like to see those fat cats like you and your rich friends cough up a lot of money to help out the less fortunate people who didn’t get born with silver spoons.

The Sad Truth About WikiLeaks

Readers of this blog may remember I turned against WikiLeaks as soon as I heard Julian Assange was refusing to even look for documents indicating pre-knowledge of 9/11. This certainly wasn’t because such documents don’t exist. In fact, many intelligence agencies sent warnings a major operation against the US was unfolding right before 9/11–just as some politicos may have been warned not to board airplanes that week. So why doesn’t WikiLeaks even want to look under those rocks? Fortunately, Daniel Estulin, who wrote the blockbuster book on Bilderberg, now has a book out titled, Deconstructing WikiLeaks. It’s a fast read and covers more than just the origins of WikiLeaks.

I was happy to see Estulin looked into Daniel Ellsberg as a prelude to  investigating Assange. See, I always thought Ellsberg was a spy and not a true anti-war activist. Real whistleblowers get ignored, while fake whistleblowers end up on the cover of Time magazine. Ellsberg was an assistant to Henry Kissinger, and associate of Edward Landsdale, two of the most obvious Octopus players who have been orchestrating events behind the scenes for the oligarchy. He was a lifelong CIA operative who supposedly had a sudden change of heart and turned against the war and began leaking Rand Corporation studies and reports, a data dump that became known as “The Pentagon Papers” even though these papers had little to do with the Pentagon, and a lot to do with whitewashing the failure of the CIA to provide proper intel about the war and leading the country into a disaster. My theory is the CIA began fomenting many operations against President Richard Nixon shortly after he returned from a surprise visit to China. There’s even a rumor Nixon returned some of the stolen gold from WWII without CIA approval in order to buy his detente move. Turning America against the war could have been part of a CIA master plan to remove Nixon.

Supposedly, Ellsberg transformed into an ardent anti-war activist partially through a chance encounter with Noam Chomsky, another possible Octopus operative who serves as a lightning rod for the left wing. I never trusted Chomsky after I heard his ridiculous views on the Kennedy assassination. I can’t believe educated people insist we don’t know the truth: the CIA fomented the deed with assistance provided by the Texas oil cabal (Hunts and Murchison) and the Chicago Outfit. These facts are known thanks to the Sicilian men-of-honor who spoke out (Roselli, Giancana) and the Cubans who worked for JM/Wave, the CIA’s largest base outside Langley. Few from inside the government have talked, and most of those that have or tried, ended up dead pretty quick.

In 1996, an architect named John Young created a free website for whistleblowers to release secret documents. The site is still around and has over 70,000 documents downloaded. The site is called “Cryptome” and I urge you to check it out. Ten years later, Assange announces his operation and even contacts Young to get him involved in the project. Two things bothered Young immediately: 1) Assange announced he needed to raise $5 million, an outrageous amount of money, way more than necessary to actually set-up and maintain the site, and 2) Assange was taking money from two well-known CIA fronts, Freedom House and the National Endowment for Democracy. Another thing that tipped Young off was Assange’s relentless rhetoric. Eventually, Young wrote a scathing critique of WikiLeaks claiming it was really a money making scam, which it is.

Another suspicious thing about both operations is the way Ellsberg and Assange usually ignore the 800 pound gorilla called illegal drugs, which have played such a vital role in our wars for the last sixty years. Since the illegal drug industry produces between a half a trillion to a trillion dollars per year in tax-free profits, these operations are vital to the stability of our banking system, which uses money-laundered cash from drugs to stay afloat. Yet you seldom find Ellsberg and Assange talking much about opium, even though capturing that monopoly was one of the primary reasons we went to war in both Vietnam and Afghanistan.

So if you’re still one of those people who believe Julian Assange is a “good guy,” please take a look at this just released expose. It might just open your mind to what’s really going on.
