Remember this guy? A year-and-a-half after 9/11, Pakistan ISI picked up Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and turned him over to the CIA, who renditioned him to Gitmo and proceeded to torture him for years, while also waterboarding him 183 times, “enhanced interrogation techniques” designed to break down his personality. Two weeks after Khalid was picked up, we invaded Iraq and destroyed the social fabric of that country, a campaign that resulted in nearly a half million casualties.
Gitmo torture would have been illegal on US soil, and “confessions” extracted under such duress have no more credibility than those extracted by Jesuit inquisitors during their crackdown on the Renaissance. So what is it about 9/11 that resulted in this two-decade delay in prosecuting the case, which is now scheduled to go before a military tribunal in 2021?
It’s amazing two psychologists with zero experience in interrogations or terrorism were paid $81 million dollars to administer torture to the Gitmo detainees, at least a quarter of whom were completely innocent and never should have been abducted and tortured in the first place. After the reality of what was going on leaked out to Congress, audio and video tapes of all torture sessions were swiftly destroyed by the CIA.
The Report is a film about the decade-long investigation conducted by Daniel Jones, a Senate staffer for Dianne Feinstein, vice chair of the Intelligence Committee. Jones was given access to millions of CIA documents and emails and spent seven years tracking every detainee through the system, discovering some painful truths along the way. Unfortunately, his report was suppressed and never made public.
But his conclusions are presented in this film, and they include that the CIA knew the torture sessions would not produce credible evidence, only fake confessions. Why would the CIA pay $81 million dollars to conduct worthless interrogations? Even more startling, the film exposes the lies of Zero Dark Thirty, a blatant propaganda film that attempted to justify Gitmo torture as essential to the capture and assassination of Osama Bin Laden, who was probably already long dead anyway.
But the film really stops short of examining the bigger questions, like who really planned 9/11, and who really was murdered in Pakistan?
So the reason the CIA snatched 775 people and tortured them for years was not to get to the real story of 9/11, but to create the false impression they had actually rounded up the perpetrators , while extracting confessions that could be touted in the media to justify the war on terror.
The film is certainly worth watching on Amazon, even though it does drag on while skirting around some obvious truths. Maybe if more Americans start putting two and two together, the scales may fall from their eyes. I know it’s difficult for many to confront the reality international terrorism is a tool of intelligence agencies and deployed to justify a fascist military state that inflicts the terror through secret operations.
The truth is the Gitmo torture sessions laid a foundation for a future wave of jihadist terrorism, because that’s exactly what’s going to happen. When you foment violence (especially upon innocent people), eventually that violence will come back at you in some form. In intelligence, it’s called “blowback,” and the CIA is well aware of the impact and implications.
The fact many reported hearing explosions and yet zero attempt was made to document the claims and the site was immediately contaminated and all evidence carted away and destroyed. That’s not how you really investigate a crime scene.
The fact Building 7 never got mentioned in the Commission report.
The fact tremendous activity took place just prior to the event. People were placing huge bets two airline stocks would decline, while the securities trading company in the towers was doing massive transfers up until the collapse. All these trades could have been easily tracked and investigated by the FBI.
The fact we rushed the already-written Patriot Act into law, something ripped right out of a Nazi playbook to restrict human rights and allow the national security state to run rampant.
The fact we invaded two countries with zero evidence of any involvement, one for oil the other for opium. The fact the CIA was working with the opium cartel was obvious and little attempt was made to hide that fact.
The fact a FEMA videographer reported strange goings-on and had to eventually flee the country.
The fact hundreds of Israeli intelligence operatives were collecting data from a variety of sources, while many were shadowing the alleged hijackers. One team was located in Florida around the corner from where Mohammed Atta lived, and another was caught videotaping the fall of the towers from Liberty Park in New Jersey, indicating they had some prior knowledge. Some of these operatives were held for weeks in confinement before being quietly sent back to Israel. A DEA report on these activities was strangely published on Salon.
The fact that Atta hung out in strip joints, drinking and doing cocaine strongly indicates he was not a jihadist, but more likely an intelligence operative.
The fact almost all the alleged hijackers came out of Saudi Arabia with suspicious visas that never should have been issued. Many got assistance from Saudi agents while in the USA, and received flight training on US bases (but not how to land). All these facts should have been well-known to the FBI.
The fact that thousands of architects, engineers, relatives of victims, first responders, and now even some NYC fire commissioners are pressing for a new investigation.
The fact that the Pentagon is ringed with security cameras and yet no video of the strike has ever been released. Strangely, the plane had to make a corkscrew turn and come hit the backside of the building to surgically take out the accounting office investigating three trillion dollars unaccounted for. Had it just flown straight into the building, it could have hit the offices of the Joint Chiefs instead.
The fact that former Mossad assassin Juval Aviv, the subject of Steven Spielberg’s “Munich,” said many intelligence agencies had advance knowledge of the plot and warned US officials.
Intelligence operations follow patterns and the most complex ones deploy diversions. It’s what a stage magician does when needing to hide something. First, he attracts attention to the other hand.
On 9/11, for example, it appears nearly simultaneous to turning off the transponders, the hijacked planes crossed paths with other planes, which may have been done to swap the two out, or just to muddy their trail.
It was a huge problem that no photo of Oswald entering the Cuban and/or Russian embassy could be found. And neither did a voice recording emerge. Hard evidence on anyone who walked into and/or called the Cuban or Russian embassies in Mexico should have been easy to relocate, and if it did exist, it mysteriously disappeared. Of course, having a tape of someone impersonating Oswald on the phone would have been irrefutable proof of a larger conspiracy.
Minutes after the assassination, Deputy Sheriff Roger Craig saw Oswald exit the Texas Schoolbook Depository and enter a light-green Rambler station wagon driven by a stocky Cuban (probably David Morales) before speeding off in the direction of Oak Cliff.
The CIA had a safe house in Oak Cliff stuffed with anti-Castro Cubans. Oswald had recently left his wife and child at Ruth Paine’s in Irving, while renting a room in Oak Cliff over 12 miles away, perhaps because operations were heating up and becoming dangerous and he wanted to distance himself from his family and shield them from potential blowback. He’d spent the previous night at Paine’s with Marina.
Officer J.D. Tippit was involved somehow in this operation and was aware of the danger because he told his son that morning, “No matter what happens today, just remember I love you.” That was the last time his son saw his dad alive. It seems possible Tippit may have been one of the few policeman who knew Oswald’s true identity as a CIA/FBI undercover informant. He knew something big was happening that day, and he seems to have become panicked after he learned JFK was dead.
Tippit was driving frantically around Oak Cliff looking for someone, probably Oswald. A police car, perhaps Tippit’s, pulled up in front of Oswald’s rooming house right after he arrived home to retrieve his revolver. The car honked twice and then moved on, an obvious signal of some sort. Since two patrolmen had escorted the three tramps to anonymity earlier that day, however, I have to suspect those two cops could have been the same spooks who honked their horn, signaling it was time to go to the next stage of operations. I’ll always wonder if those fake cops circled the block and then picked Oswald up at some prearranged location to deposit him at the Texas Theater, and then rushed off to 10th Street to plant Oswald’s wallet at the Tippit murder scene.
Tippit was blocking an alley on East 10th Street seven blocks from the theater when he rolled down his passenger side window to speak to a pedestrian. It seems a police car may have already been in that alley nearby as police were on the scene almost immediately after the shooting. When Tippit exited his car and came around to talk further, or perhaps to take the pedestrian into custody, the pedestrian shot him four times, including two point-blank shots to the head. Obviously, the shooter wanted insurance Tippit would not survive. Some sort of conversation took place and escalated from there and Tippit apparently didn’t comprehend the danger he was in or he would not have left his vehicle without drawing his gun. It was a mob-style execution and not a gun fight.
The first cop on the scene picked up a wallet next to the spreading pool of Tippit’s blood, and it had Lee Harvey Oswald’s military ID. There were also four empty cartridges discovered at the scene as the shooter had emptied his revolver while walking away. How convenient! It’s not often a murderer leaves his ID and spent cartridges like a trail of breadcrumbs to the magic kingdom. At this point there were zero suspects in JFK’s assassination, but immediately after Tippit’s murder, the story went out Lee Harvey Oswald was a suspect and had just murdered a policeman possibly as part of his getaway. Officer down! The response was staggering and almost every patrol car in Dallas converged on Oak Cliff. The focus was instantly concentrated entirely on Oswald and that focus never wavered.
By the time Tippit was shot, Oswald was already inside the Texas Theater. He’d been directed there by someone and was likely supposed to make contact with someone he didn’t know. A theater is a logical location for a clandestine rendezvous because safe houses need to stay safe and we know there was a CIA safe house nearby. Oswald sat first in the balcony, but soon bought popcorn and moved down to the main floor, sitting for a few minutes right next to someone before moving on to another person. After he sat right next to a pregnant woman and had a brief conversation, she got up and moved to the balcony while Oswald moved again to sit next to another.
Whoever shot Tippit also came to the theater, but not before dumping a windbreaker under a vehicle behind a gas station. Suddenly, like those planes crossing as transponders go off, the two Oswalds came in close proximity for maybe the first time, and one of them had the entire Dallas police force on his tail. My best guess is the double came in a few minutes after Oswald, and he went unseen up into the balcony where the pregnant woman was now seated.
When the police arrived, they stopped the film, turned on the house lights and approached the audience from the stage and began inspecting everyone’s IDs. When they got to Oswald, he allegedly jumped up and shouted, “It’s all over now,” and punched the nearest officer, who fell into the seats. He then pulled out his revolver and pointed it at the ceiling, or perhaps the floor, or maybe at the officer. Eyewitness testimony conflicts from this point. Witnesses claim to have heard the gun click, but no shots were fired. The arresting officer later somewhat absurdly claimed he’d placed his thumb on the hammer to prevent it from going off. Perhaps the revolver had a bent firing pin or was unloaded. Perhaps the speech was part of a script fed to him by his handler. Oswald was pummeled by many officers, handcuffed and taken out the front entrance to be greeted by an immense mob that included some media. He was not assassinated in the theater as might have been expected from flourishing a revolver shouting, “It’s over.” But then later on, some witnesses would say Oswald uttered those words while being led out of the building in handcuffs, and that’s the problem: the most theatrical version possible often gets written in stone.
It appears the police may have continued inspecting IDs after Oswald was removed from the theater and may have gone up into the balcony where a man who looked somewhat like Oswald was also taken into custody and also handcuffed, only this person was taken out the back door and never showed up at the police station. And I say this because we have many witnesses to an Oswald coming out the front and one witness to an Oswald coming out the back. One of the oddest points of this case is we only know the names of a few people who were in that theater out of more than two dozen who bought tickets that day.
It’s worth noting Oswald had a wallet on him when he was in the theater, leading to speculation about the mysterious wallet dropped at the scene of Tippit’s murder, the wallet that put Oswald on the map in the first place. Sorta like the passport found at the World Trade Center that was disappeared from the story later on.
But perhaps the most bizarre saga of the two Oswalds is the story told by a refrigerator mechanic to the FBI four days after the assassination.
On November 20th, at 10:30 AM, Ralph Leon Yates was driving through Oak Cliff and stopped to pick up a hitchhiker near the Beckley Avenue, where Oswald lived. The hitchhiker carried a package wrapped in brown wrapping paper about 4 foot to 4½ feet long, saying it contained curtain rods. Yates mentioned the upcoming presidential visit and the hitchhiker responded by asking if he thought a person could assassinate the president and whether that might be best accomplished from the top of a building or out a window high up with a rifle. The man then asked about the President’s parade route and whether that might be changed in the next few days.
When Yates got to work, he told his coworker about this strange incident and later gave his story to the FBI on November 26, and again on December 10, January 3 and 4, concluding with a polygraph test, which he passed.
According to JFK the Unspeakable, Yates was soon committed to Woodlawn Hospital for an evaluation and then moved to Terrell State Hospital for eight years, and then placed in two different hospitals for another three years. He never abandoned his story about giving Oswald a ride to work with the murder weapon, no matter how many electric shocks he got. The Warren Commission dismissed his story as a fantasy, probably because they had a better version for how the rifle got into the building from Frazier, although Frazier never believed the two-foot long package he saw on the back seat of his car was a 36-inch carbine, no matter how long they interrogated him, and Frazier was badgered for nearly 12 hours, and only released after he demanded (and passed) a lie detector test, which was pretty savy for a 19-year-old kid. To this day, Frazier believes Oswald was framed.
Yates, on the other hand, died in a psyche ward of congestive heart failure at age 39.
Mark Lane was one of the few skeptics allowed to testify at the Warren Commission, and could have easily shredded the official story had he brought attention to the Odio affidavit and a few others. Instead Lane launched into a bizarre attack on the backyard photo of Oswald as being a fake and also claimed the rifle in the photo was not the same as the rifle as found at the Texas School Book Depository because it had no scope. Lane had sought to examine the rifle in custody and complained bitterly about not being allowed to.
I find this fascinating because Lane was certainly aware of Deputy Sheriff Roger Craig’s testimony stating the rifle found on the sixth floor was a German Mauser. Why would he need to examine the highly inferior Carcano when obviously it was a swap-out? Before Lane appeared in Dallas, newspaperman Penn Jones was already on the scene, and highly suspicious of a military intelligence operation. Jones, however, was elbowed out of the spotlight and replaced by Lane. Apparently, seizing the center of gravity on a conspiracy is standard ops for counterintelligence, and they do it with every major conspiracy.
Even more suspicious is Oswald’s wife admitted taking the backyard photo, and a different take from same the photo shoot signed by Oswald had been presented to George de Mohrenschildt, a man who started out spooking for the Nazis. So why would Lane make this photo the crux of a conspiracy case, unless he was intentionally planting a rabbit hole with a time bomb?
“Magic wands were always made out of the wood of a Holly tree. It’s made out of Holly wood. Hollywood is a Druidic establishment and the symbols, the words, the terms, the stories, are designed. Think about it. Think about how Hollywood does what they do. I’m not saying they’re evil, I’m just explaining how Hollywood works.” -Jordan Maxwell
Although Jordan Maxwell (real name Russell Pine) self-describes himself as the world’s leading expert in the occult, in fact, he is the historical equivalent of Lucy in Peanuts (just making up shit as he goes along). He claims there’s a star-gate in Iraq that instantly teleports anyone to a military base on Mars, and the world has been secretly run by lizards from another dimension for millennia. The amazing thing is some people actually fall for his hoodwinks.
I’d like to point out the use of magic sticks goes back into prehistory and the wood initially associated with wands was walnut, and later other nut trees, but never a holly tree. The origins of the name Hollywood are easily researched and has zero to do with Druids. I just want you to see how shallow Maxwell’s understanding of magic is, and how easily 99% of his “research” can be exposed by consulting the Internet.
So how does a transparent quack get propelled to the front lines of the conspiracy media and become an influential figure? I suggest the Tin Foil Hat Disinfo Matrix is well organized, composed of spooks, kooks, players and played, and it’s hard to tell the brainwashed true-believers (and MK/Ultra mind control victims) from the spooks. But I can assure you the crowd Maxwell runs with (Icke, Tsarion, Passio) are card carrying members of a managed dialectic whose primary purpose is spreading a tin foil blanket over events like 9/11.
The style of this op is to twist history into some wildly paranoid conspiracy involving good versus bad aliens or other such transparent hokum. Some of Maxwell’s dogma is extracted straight from Bible quotes, but his mainstays are direct from Manley P. Hall’s investigations into occult literature. But it doesn’t matter where your dogma comes from, it’s still just dogma and nothing more. Maxwell can rant for hours about solar cults and moon cults and astro-astrology, but doesn’t have a clue about the Scythian influence on mythology and religion. If you want to know what preceeded Sumeria and Egypt, look toward the Black Sea, and the people who first domesticated horses and invented the wheel.
Maxwell claims the winged globe of ancient times was a reference to a UFO spacecraft, which is absurd. The evolution of the winged globe and its importance in the Zoroastrian religion, and eventual morphing into the caduceus, is important, so I wonder why the Disinfo Matrix obscures its meaning with a UFO hoax. Could it be because the winged globe symbolizes the effects of cannabis? One thing you need to know about Scythians: they loved cannabis, which is why the Zoroastrian version of the Eucharist served cannabis and hot milk (often with a dash of opium, ephedra and spices).
Maxwell claims to have met a psychic early in life who foretold his destiny as a great person. That’s exactly what David Icke claims so I suspect this might be a reference to their MK/Ultra hypnotherapist. He also claims to have spent his early years investigating Communism, and if that is so, I wonder why he says nothing about the vast intel penetration and manipulation of the communist networks. But some of his biggest blunders concern the Holy Grail and his belief that the myth is all about Jesus.
Trust me, any time someone tries to scare you with magic or religion, it’s always a hoodwink. Painting pictures of an alien boogie-man secretly running the world is a hoodwink because all it accomplishes is to let the real criminals off the hook, because none of them are lizard aliens.
If you are wondering how the status quo keeps such a tight lid on obvious crimes like 9/11, look no further than their Disinfo Matrix, a Tin Foil Hat brigade spreading clouds of mud on any real attempts to penetrate intel ops.
Immediately after JFK was assassinated, gatekeepers with ties to military intelligence swarmed the scene, most notable Mark Lane and Mary Ferrell. Even today, few realize the extent of intel manipulation into the creation of the JFK research community, which is why it took so long to find any threads of real info inside the snowstorm of disinfo they manufactured.
Michael Tsarion (real name Brian Heatley) considers himself an expert on magic, ancient civilizations, psychic vampirism and secret societies.
Since these are some of my areas of expertise, I can comfortably assure you Heatley is not a legit historian nor magician and most everything he says is an obvious fabrication. His videos and books are immense rabbit holes leading nowhere that will hopefully soon wither and fade away.
Heatley’s real place in the universe is placing a tin foil blanket over what is really going on, and this op is not something new. These characters like Tsarion, Icke and Passio evolved from a long line of spooks parading as mystics with secret hidden info.
Becoming an internationally celebrated psychic is not easily accomplished. Almost all depend on carnival hoodwinks and the trickery can be easily exposed. The real ones keep their inspirations to themselves and never know when a psychic intuition might hit them. But if you are someone with powerful connections, fake psychic powers can be vetted by the established media and your ticket prices and book sales will soar! Spook psychics have always been engineered close to people high in the oligarchies with tendencies towards magical thinking in order to influence their behavior. But the same sort of thing goes on with mainstream religion.
Mainstream religion was constructed as a power base and profit stream and occultism was constructed to ensnare those who escaped the mainstream religion. Occultism was never a fountain of great wisdom, any more than religion, although both contain elements of wisdom, their paradigms are dominated by dogma, agenda and fakery. This chain of corruption runs through Alessandro Cagliostro, Compte de Saint-Germain, Helen Blavatsky up to and including Aleister Crowley, all of whom claimed to have uncovered secrets of the universe, but none came close to solving the secret of the Holy Grail or even identifying the active ingredient in the sacred oil of Abramelin employed by the world’s greatest magicians for millennia.
According to Tsarion, our earth is secretly controlled by aliens from another galaxy and Jesus was one of them, a man who fell to earth from an interplanetary spacecraft. This hoodwink is not that far off from Scientology. Heatley considers himself an expert on Camelot and believes the grail is about Jesus. In fact, the grail emanates from ancient Scythia long before the time of Jesus, and King Arthur was just an update on Heracles, but instead of 12 labors, he had to win 12 battles.
Before the Christian censors got control of this story, the grail was an object required to bring peace to the kingdom. It was never about the chalice itself, but the magic potion found inside.
I’ve made some videos to help lead people out of the rabbit holes.
Meet the new crusaders forged in torture chambers from Abu Ghraib to Guantanamo Bay.
Blowback is a counterintelligence term for what happens when you wreak violence on somebody, because violence always comes back. So don’t think the Pentagon and NSA didn’t see this one coming a mile off. And, of course, this sort of violence is heaven sent since it guarantees a booming arms trade for years, if not decades. Isn’t it wonderful we turned the second biggest oil stream in the Middle East over to Radical Fundamentalists so they could use it to boost our arms sales and economy?
Just as hundreds of Al-Qaeda terrorists were recently transplanted from safe houses in Turkey to aid our NATO forces in Syria, someday ISIS might be our ally against Al-Qaeda. It already takes an advanced degree in diplomacy to unravel the political affiliations in the Middle East, a situation that grows progressively byzantine as the decades roll on, which is why I know this War on Terror is going on for a long, long time.
One of the Paris shooters was 15-years-old and there are six million Muslims in France, and maybe a quarter of them sympathize somewhat with suicide bombings, while one percent (60,000) are housed in prisons, the breeding ground for becoming a gangsta for god. Muslims in France tend to have twice the children of non-Muslims and are ten percent of the population. Do the math.
Meanwhile, France makes billions exporting arms to the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Morocco, arming the next wave of suicide shooters. There’s going to be a lot of bullets and bombs sold this week, so if you like making easy money, invest in the war machine, I know the oligarchy does.
The leadership of ISIS formed inside our torture centers, like Abu Ghraib. The torture we inflicted served to radicalize and heighten their fervor to take revenge. Reminds me of when the Mossad wiped out the moderate Palestinian movement in response to Munich, something that opened the door for more radical elements to take over the movement. Meanwhile, the mastermind of Munich was being protected by the CIA.
Don’t believe me? Just watch Spielberg’s film Munich. The media doesn’t really tell you the Paris attack was retaliation for an airstrike on ISIS, and of course, France immediately launched another attack in response, and so it goes, and goes. An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind. The masters of war just love ceremonies of death like these because they fuel the hatred and the racism.
If you study the history of communism, you’ll find the American communist movement stuffed with spooks from the onset, and so was the enormous and well-funded anti-Communist movement. That’s how a managed dialectic works. Spooks create and manipulate both sides. It’s not difficult to penetrate a terror group. You just offer them money, resources and volunteers, and let your secret spooks worm their way into positions of influence. Most of the real fighters are mercenaries working for a paycheck, while the brainwashed teenagers serve as suicide bombers. When the Soviet Union collapsed, the communist/capitalist dialectic was suddenly over and a substitute had to be manufactured. So radical Islam versus Israel and her allies became the new dialectic. Radical Islam has long been a spook project and the Muslim Brotherhood has a lot of Nazi connections in its origins. Every time a drone drops a bomb on the Middle East, we create more suicide bombers because violence leads to violence.
When you see suicide bombings provoking widespread violence as a response (and many people believe this is the solution), I have to point out: violence, bombings, racism and hate will not solve the problem. Reject the managed dialectic. The people off all nations need to band together, reject violence, and use the money going to bombs and bullets to build schools and hospitals and a better life for the down-trodden so they aren’t so easily pulled into this hoodwink.
INTEL OPS 101 Seed your false flag with an instant pointer to focus event coverage. In the alternative and conspiracy media, release a tidbit of real evidence attached to a detail that can be easily disproved later, and demand an end to all debate once it’s disproved. Always present the concept of false flags as insane, unpatriotic and heap ridicule on it to stifle debate. Never engage in rational discourse with researchers. 5 keys to success: 1) Stage anti-terror drill during terror event as cover for operations; 2) Plant ID at scene; 3) Rush to martial law, suspension of civil liberties, with sweeping changes prepared in advance 4) an alarming detail indicating a possible false flag should released within days to fuel conspiracy theories, but it must be tied a false detail or come from a tinfoil hat buffoon; 5) nutty theories involving UFOs/holograms/lizards/etc. should flood the Internet, using the manufactured tinfoil hat brigade.
So where are the accolades and honors for one of America’s greatest investigative journalists? I bet you’ve never even heard his name.
There’s no denying Steve Kangas was the real thing, a CIA spook who dropped out of the game and began revealing deep secrets. Thankfully, much of his journalism survives today because he was one of the first to realize the value of the Internet. I don’t understand why there’s no biography or compendium of his greatest hits. Hopefully, someday, these will emerge.
Kangas was posted in Berlin at the height of the Cold War and grew disgusted by dirty tricks and secret ops, so he got himself honorably discharged and moved to Santa Cruz to pursue some college degrees. He planned to go all the way to PhD with the financial assistance of the G.I. Bill. He was a chess master and quickly became president of the Santa Cruz chess club, which gives you an idea of his intellectual prowess. Had he lived, he’d be the most enlightened political pundit in the world today, so deep was his understanding of secret societies. It took me decades to catch up to where Kangas was in 1999 when he was murdered (although officially, it’s a “suicide” naturally.) There was another journalist working a similar trail even earlier named Danny Casolaro and he was also “suicided” back in 1991. But after Kangas was killed, the CIA went into overdrive inventing fake whistle-blowers to snatch control of the center of conspiracy research. If you see a so-called whistle-blower on the cover of Time magazine, rest assured that’s an op.
Kangas knew the CIA was designed not to foster democracy but fascist puppets favorable to rampant exploitation, which is why the CIA is known on the inside as the “company,” while agents are “assets” and overseas postings, “accounts,” terminology lifted straight from the big business universe they secretly serve.
Kangas was also aware of a deep Catholic connection inside the CIA, and the incredible overlap of CIA officials, corporate CEOs, European royals, heads of state, and Nazi war criminals, all of whom were Knights of Malta (essentially the Pope’s CIA), which means they held citizenship in the only landless entity on earth offering full diplomatic immunity. While masquerading as do-gooders, Knights can whiz easily through customs with nary a second glance, so if you want to move something secret or illegal across international borders, just hand it off to them.
One of Kangas’ most important revelations was Watergate was a CIA op designed to bring down Nixon, who had been trying to wrest control of international relations away from the CIA. Apparently, Nixon’s detente move with China did not have full CIA approval. Early on, Kangas recognized Bob Woodward as a spook, and not a real investigative journalist.
Richard Mellon Scaife became one of Kangas’ main targets and he spent months investigating Scaife’s operations. At the time, Scaife was puppet master of the “vast right-wing conspiracy” trying to bring down President Clinton, as he was pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into the effort to wrest the White House from the Democrats. Much of this activity was cloaked inside some highly influential foundations which had been created as tax shelters for the super rich, the biggest of which were:
Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation
Charles G. Koch
David H. Koch
Claude R. Lambe
Philip M. McKenna
John M. Olin Foundation
Henry Salvatori Foundation
Sarah Scaife Foundation
Smith Richardson Foundation
One sticky problem Scaife needed to overcome was the large number of women supporting the Democrats, so he began grooming female pundits for his cause. He donated $450,000 to help create the Independent Women’s Forum, which greatly assisted the rise of Ann Coulter.
According to a former Scaife employee: “He has the emotional maturity of a very angry 12-year-old, and he has all this money and he can do whatever he wants with it.” While working as managing editor of a Scaife-funded magazine, Pat Minarcin was given a list of people Scaife wanted attacked in print. Minarcin resigned.
On February 8th, 1999, Kangas took a bus to Pittsburgh from Nevada, and visited the Scaife headquarters. We don’t know what happened next. Was he there to interview Scaife? We only know he was found dead in the men’s room on the same floor as Scaife’s office. And that Kangas’ computer was wiped clean the next day. The death was quickly ruled a suicide, while the police report and autopsy disagreed on the location of the entry wound. There was zero coverage in any media for weeks, and even then, not a single reporter conducted an independent investigation of the death. Eventually, the story was sculpted to assert Kangas had come to Pittsburgh to assassinate Scaife, and had gotten cold feet and shot himself instead, a completely absurd hypothesis accepted faithfully by the national media. My theory is he came to interview Scaife and perhaps tape record his answers when confronted with certain evidence. After the interview was concluded, Kangas stopped off at the men’s room, where Scaife’s goons began separating him from his recorder and evidence. Did Kangas actually possess a weapon, and carry it to Pittsburgh, and if so, why is there zero discussion about it’s forensic trail, because weapons have some.
But this was not the first unexpected death linked to Scaife. Robert Duggan was the powerful district attorney in Pittsburgh, and also boyfriend of Cordelia, Scaife’s sister. Duggan had shepherded Scaife into the highest echelons of the Republican Party in Pennsylvania, but after a federal investigation was launched against Duggan, Scaife planned to subpoena his sister Cordelia to spill whatever beans she knew. In response, Cordelia swiftly married Duggan to prevent any such testimony from taking place. On March 5th, 1974, the same day the corruption indictment came down, Duggan was found dead of a shotgun blast to the chest. The weapon was on the ground several feet away. Cordelia was convinced her brother was behind the killing and the two cut off all communication for decades, although they did reconcile shortly before Cordelia’s death.
On July 4, 2014, Scaife passed away from cancer one day after his 82nd birthday. He left his fortune to two foundations, and his two children immediately filed a lawsuit claiming the billion dollar fortune had been drained of hundreds of millions of dollars just prior to their father’s death.
My coda on this saga is Barbara Olson, one of the attractive right-wing pundits shepherded on a fast-track through the Scaife propaganda mills. Olson was an attorney for Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, which may be the most powerful law firm in America (after Sullivan and Cromwell), before she became a professional pundit. She was on her way to another appearance on Bill Mayer’s Politically Incorrect when she boarded Flight 77. Although cell phones did not work above 1800 feet at the time, she allegedly called her husband from high altitude. The call, although technically impossible, was how the 9/11 hijack story was initially fed into the national media.
Barbara Olson had previously been the primary protector of Clarence Thomas in his battle against Anita Hill, and later morphed into the primary attack dog on Hillary Clinton. Her husband was the lawyer who successfully represented George W. Bush in Bush vs. Gore, a case that handed the presidency to a thief. Ted Olson was rewarded with the post of Solicitor General, a position he held from June 2001 to July 2004.
According to Ted, he received two phone calls from his wife on September 11th, the longest of which lasted for four minutes. The pilots and passengers had been herded to the rear of the plane by men armed only with box-cutters. Barbara asked her husband to provide instructions for the pilot standing near her. However, during the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the FBI revealed there was only one phone call from Barbara to Ted that day and it lasted 0 seconds. In other words, it was an unconnected call, which is what you’d expect from any call made above 1,800 feet. Another suspicious detail is the pilot, Charles “Chic” Burlingame, was a weightlifter and boxer, and more physically imposing than the alleged hijackers, many of whom seem to have been employing other people’s identities and not their own. Just as none of the video from the Pentagon has ever been released to the public, none of the phone records from that day have ever been released, increasing suspicion of a cover-up.
In 1606 some manifestos appeared in Germany opposing the Catholic Church and claiming secret knowledge from the east. Although the Protestant revolution had been ongoing for nearly a hundred years (having been launched in 1516 by an ordained priest at the University of Wittenburg named Martin Luther), these new mystical manifestos drew on Arabic, Judaic and Greek influences, while Luther’s Reformation was based around the Christian Bible.
Christian Rosenkreuz was listed as author of the manifestos, but many years later Johann Valenntin Andreae (above) claimed credit for authoring at least one of them (the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz) and he revealed the treatise had been initially intended as satire, claiming the fictional Rosenkrutz lived to the advanced age of 106, longevity attributed to a study of Indian mysticism. The secret order was intended to usher in the age of enlightenment and inductees were said to possess magical knowledge that would transform arts and sciences, but according to Andreae it was a hoodwink that took on a life of its own.
The oligarchies have long been fascinated by magic, and easily suckered into a fraudulent seance, and Rosicrucianism became big very quickly because Europe was going through a zeitgeist shift. Secret societies were sprouting everywhere, and many were advancing the concepts of liberty, equality and fraternity, ideas that threatened the status quo ruled by the monarchies and their anointed churches. The largest and most successful secret society was Freemasonry, which had taken much from the outlawed Templars, but Rosicrucianism had a big influence on the evolution of masonry, and some of its mystical concepts were incorporated into the emerging masonic rituals. A few Rosicrucians began charging exorbitant fees for arranging ceremonies and sharing secret wisdom.
But in 1776, a new secret society appeared, and it immediately positioned itself as antagonistic to both the Catholic Church and Rosicrucianism. Interestingly, this new secret society was created at a Jesuit university by a Jesuit-trained lawyer who specialized in canon law of the Catholic Church. However, most of the membership never knew his name and a story would be spread on how the Illuminati were actually controlled by a small group of illuminated masters (just like the Rosicrucians supposedly were). This may actually have been the case if Adam Weishaupt was involved with the attempt to remove the recent Papal ban on the Jesuits, who had achieved monopolies of trade on a scale not seen since the Templars.
Both the Rosicrucians and the Illuminati were recruiting members from within masonic lodges, and doing it in great secrecy. Weishaupt’s strategy was to recruit the leader of a lodge because if the leader joined, the entire lodge could be manipulated. Although Weishaupt claimed to be fomenting the downfall of religion and royalty, he was actively recruiting the rich and powerful, while devising techniques that protected the society from exposure. Most members knew only their handler and anyone they personally recruited, while only Weishaupt knew all about everyone. It was such a conspiratorial time that many suspected their lodges had been penetrated by Jesuits, Rosicrucians, Illuminati, or all of the above.
Mt. Vernon, October 24, 1798
Revd Sir: …It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am….
(The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources, 1745-1799. John C Fitzpatrick, Editor)
I realize there’s a popular movement afoot led by Madonna and others to resurrect the Illuminati as a force for good, something spearheaded by Robert Anton Wilson many decades ago, but I don’t subscribe to that belief, and view the organization much the same as Washington did in 1798. He considered it a diabolical plot to separate people from their government.
There’s little doubt the Bonesmen of Yale are the closest thing we have today to an Illuminati op, and Boners have penetrated the upper strata of business, banking and intelligence, not to mention the media and the energy corporations. Their objective seems to be self-enrichment and acquisition of power, and apparently has little to do with enlightenment or helping the common people unlock the chains of exploitation.
It’s funny how communists organized in secret cells just like the Illuminati. And they also obeyed an unknown central authority at all cost, just like the Illuminati. I’m fascinated by the history of communism in America because it appears the movement was penetrated and manipulated by spooks from its inception. In April 1958, a leader of the American communist movement named Morris Childs was sent to the Soviet Union and China to meet with top officials and after three months he returned to secretly report to President Dwight D. Eisenhower and members of his national security staff. Enormous penetration ops were embedding secret agents into both sides of this carefully-managed dialectic from day one.
Simultaneously, in 1947, the CIA created the National Student Association (NSA) during a meeting of student activists in Madison, Wisconsin. Interestingly, there was a strong Catholic block inside the NSA that voted as a group. The NSA was one of the few organizations that openly opposed McCarthy’s anti-communist movement, quickly leading to allegations they were a communist front, when, in fact, they were a CIA front pretending to be a communist front.
It’s funny how so many devout communists from this era would emerge later in life as neo-cons, or how leaders of the terrorist Weather Underground got professorships, leaving me to wonder if they weren’t spooks all along. John Foster “Chip” Berlet wrote a series of books on student activism for the NSA, and took thousands of photos of student activists during this period. He also became an active shop steward for the National Lawyers’ Guild, which opposed McCarthism and was similarly accused of being a communist front, leaving me to wonder about its possible CIA-connections.
For many years, Berlet ran a think tank funded by the CIA-connected Ford Foundation, and attempted to install himself as the leading authority debunking conspiracy theories involving 9/11 and the CIA. Strangely, he momentarily became the Washington DC editor for High Times, and wrote an attack on Lyndon LaRouche that was published in that magazine. LaRouche appears to be an intelligence operation as there is migration from his staff to the Pentagon, as in the case of Laurent Murawiec, who became an analyst for the CIA-connected RAND corporation while writing articles for the highly conspiratorial Executive Intelligence Review.
LaRouche first surfaced at Colombia University in the late sixties as a Marxist, and attempted a coup on the local SDS chapter run by Mark Rudd. Rudd would eventually join the Weather Underground, who were trying to spark a holocaust on millions of straight people, part of their insane plan to create the Communist States of America. Obviously, this was a spook operation that never had any prayer of success, but merely deployed to scare the bejesus out of straight America, while undermining and outflanking the once non-violent student movement. Only stupid or naive minds (or spooks) can be led into supporting mass murder. LaRouche, meanwhile, trolled for brighter minds using nets of complex Marxist ideologies, while deploying the latest mind control techniques for holding the poor souls thus entrapped. Strangely, many of his recruits were Jewish, and would soon be embracing the Holocaust denial movement.
Willis Carto and LaRouche formed an alliance, as both were constructing global operations on the far right, building connections into various secret societies and government intelligence agencies by sharing explosive information with choice targets. The mysterious Mitch Werbell became LaRouche’s chief security advisor.
Was communism created as an op from day one or was it was merely penetrated and taken over after taking root? There’s likely a reason why nearly every modern revolution and progressive movement against colonialism has been subverted by communists and that reason may be because communism looks a lot like fascism in disguise.
Did the Jesuits create the Illuminati to manage the enlightenment? Did MI6 and the CIA promote communism for a similar purpose?
When dealing with the wonderful world of spooks, difficult questions like these should be considered because intelligence operations are designed as a wilderness of mirrors where up is down, left is right, and although people have the power whenever they want to take it, and could vote away the wealth of the oligarchy if they were better organized with more effective, focused leadership, and there’s plenty enough resources to take care of everyone if only they could be better distributed, in truth, any successful movement that supports an agenda like that will instantly be penetrated by spooks.
Russ Baker wrote a great blog about some famous seeding-the-rabbit-hole incidents. Did you know Lee Harvey Oswald’s wallet was conveniently found dropped right near the spot where police officer J.D. Tippet was found murdered shortly after JFK’s assassination? This wallet was, in fact, the evidence used by police to declare Oswald’s complicity in the JFK assassination.
Simultaneously, a bullet was found on the stretcher used to move JFK, and although virtually undamaged, it became responsible for a half dozen wounds on two people. Naturally, the bullet matched a rifle Oswald had recently mail-ordered.
Next, consider the bundle found on the sidewalk near Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination, all of which pointed towards James Earl Ray as the culprit, a bundle that included some of Ray’s laundry as well as the alleged murder weapon and a newspaper clipping giving the name of the motel King was scheduled to be at.
But most amazing of all these tall tales was the appearance of the undamaged visa for alleged hijacker Satam al-Suqami just a few blocks from twin towers after they fell. Those steel towers and aluminum planes had turned to dust in a matter of seconds, but this incriminating scrap of paper that helped break the case wide open floated out of the apocalypse in mint condition.
Most recently, there is Said Kouachi’s ID left in his abandoned stolen vehicle following his attack on Charlie Hebdo’s offices. Without that ID, it would have taken weeks to break the case. Why does it seem like the same template is being used in all these cases? Maybe because it works so well.
One of my favorite episodes along these lines was the amazing testimony given by Fox radio host Mark Walsh just seconds after the twin towers fell, seeding the absurd cover story on how steel-framed buildings could suffer a complete collapse from fire for the first time in history, delivered on live national TV. Does it not appear he’s reciting a script?
This same technique was used after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, when the finger was instantly pointed towards Col. John Mosby (aka The Grey Ghost). In fact, Mosby had been planning an elaborate presidential kidnapping plot, and Booth was his key agent in that conspiracy. But as the conspiracy grew, it eventually included a number of double agents secretly reporting back to the Union War Department.
We know this because of the original confession given by George Atzerodt. This confession was strangely not admitted into the trial as evidence and ordered destroyed, although 117 years later a photostat was found in the archives of one of the stenographers. Atzerodt had listed over a dozen additional names in the kidnap conspiracy, people who were never charged nor investigated. Soon, however, his story changed considerably. But that only happened after he’d lost his mind wearing a suffocating canvas-and-leather hood 24 hours a day that cut off all sight and sound. This torture device, which he was forced to endure for weeks until hanged, had been invented to keep him from revealing information to anyone while the government fabricated a case with paid perjuries.
The only justification for these machinations is if the War Department was complicit in the crime of killing Lincoln, pretty much the same situation we have now with the lies of the Pentagon regarding 9/11.
According to Atzerodt, Booth had been informed that the “New York crowd” who’d been assisting the kidnap plot had decided to put a hit on Lincoln. Booth accepted their mission, and was obviously paid to carry it out (and reportedly had a large amount of cash on him that disappeared). Booth was told to act fast or someone else might get the glory of killing the tyrant as multiple hit teams were assembling.
It was only afterwards, when every newspaper in the land denounced Booth that he realized he’d been played and wrote in his diary that he desired to return to Washington to “clear his name.”
How could Booth clear his name, unless, of course, he planned to name some traitors inside the War Department who’d aided the mission and left Lincoln unguarded so he could waltz in and do the evil deed with a one-shot derringer.
But Booth never made it back to Washington. Instead, he was found locked inside a tobacco barn, and while inside that barn someone put a bullet in back of his skull at close range and blamed it on the brain-damaged Boston Corbett (who’d self-castrated himself so feeble was his brain from mercury poisoning).
And for 150 years, the country has swallowed this fable that Booth was the mastermind of the assassination, and all the conspirators were caught and punished.

The Knights of the Golden Circle was a notorious secret society you may have never heard of. In 1861, a history of the K.G.C. was published stating the Southern Rights movement began in 1834, although the first charter for a K.G.C. “castle” (their name for a lodge) was in 1854. I suggest watching The Conspirator, a film produced by Robert Redford a few years ago. I much prefer it to Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.
Redford spent years researching the Lincoln assassination, and the film focuses on Mary Surratt, the patsy, and Edwin Stanton, who took charge of the country after the assassination. After submitting almost entirely to Stanton’s will for a brief time, President Andrew Johnson attempted to fire him, and that’s what sparked the impeachment vote. Stanton barricaded himself in his office until the impeachment trial was over, at which point he was forced out of office.
Obviously, Lincoln’s assassination was a conspiracy, and since Captain John Wilkes Booth of the Confederate Secret Service would have most likely been working with elements of the K.G.C., and it’s offshoot, The Sons of Liberty, it might have also been useful to investigate those links during the trial. Strangely, that never happened. Instead, some innocents, including Mary Surratt, were railroaded into a military courtroom and quickly hanged, something that never could have transpired had they been afforded a regular trial and effective counsel. You have to wonder why Stanton was so eager to close the case with a fabricated trial stuffed with perjuries, and after some of his hoodwinks were unmasked, refused to vacate his office where the official records were stored. Stanton, it should also be noted, was a devoted Freemason, and his connections ran wide and deep.
The film doesn’t really go into Stanton’s motivations, although it does demonstrate some of his manipulations in the rush to judgment against an innocent woman he painted as mastermind of the assassination. Stanton would reverse Lincoln’s plans for national healing and instead open up the South to the sort of ruthless exploitation favored by Thaddeus Stevens and Ben Wade. Stanton supported General Grant for President, but was not rewarded with a return to the Cabinet, but later offered a seat on the Supreme Court, although Grant sat on that appointment for weeks and Stanton died mysteriously before it was signed.
Stanton got his job as Secretary of War in 1862, one year after the war’s start because the previous secretary had just been sacked thanks to implementing a ruthless strategy that had initially been suggested by Stanton. Lincoln was unaware of that fact, and probably felt having a Democrat as Secretary of War provided some strategic advantage. Mostly, Stanton had the backing of the leaders of both houses of Congress, as well as a reputation as the best lawyer in the country.
I find it fascinating Stanton got his start with a $500 loan from Clement Vallandigham (left), who would go on to become leader of the pro-slavery “Copperhead” Democrats, so named by Republicans to sheep-dip them as venomous snakes. However, before the Civil War got started, the K.G.C. was collecting funds for an invasion of Mexico (similar to the plans of British spook Aaron Burr, who’d been arrested and tried for fomenting a similar plot).
Vallandigham served two terms in Congress, where he voted against every proposed military bill, but after he lost his seat, he was arrested as an enemy agent, convicted and deported to the South as an alien.
Interesting John Brown was the terrorist who helped spark the Civil War and after Brown’s Harper’s Ferry raid, Vallandigham was one of a handful of Congressmen allowed to interrogate the terrorist. I suspect the abolitionist movement might have been funded by economic forces making plans for war-for-profit. Brown’s biggest source of financing was William Russell, founder of Yale’s secretive Skull & Bones society, and whose family ran the North American opium cartel.
Redford’s film doesn’t mention any of these important details, including the connection between Vallandigham and the K.G.C., which had begun in his home state of Ohio. The society went through an interesting evolution, morphing into the Order of the American Knights and then becoming The Order of the Sons of Liberty, at which point Vallandigham emerged as the Supreme Commander.
There are many lessons in this story, but the most important is that whenever a military tribunal is called when a public criminal trial is needed, you should immediately suspect a hidden agenda and cover-up. And that’s why the creation of the Guantanamo Bay Prison and the torturing of people for decades, many of whom were found to have been innocent, is just another suspicious detail in the sordid history of 9/11.
