KGB and CIA counterintelligence styles were vastly different because America is an open society while Soviet is closed.
KGB had an immense pool of people to pull from. They would seek out the right personality types for covert ops. Super hottie and bisexual candidates of both sexes that could kill on command without raising their blood pressure were the most highly prized recruits.
CIA agents were defectors or White Russians. It was much harder for them to pass as authentic. They relied mostly on hypnosis. Agents would be conditioned to resist breaking cover.
KGB expected a long, protracted struggle and embedded hundreds of sleeper agents who were supposed to become Americans, raise children, even attend churches, and then maybe 20 years down the road, might get activated for a mission. CIA didn’t have that sort of patience.
Tai Chi was central to KGB philosophy, which meant directing energy not engaging it head-on. The first major maneuver was into the Civil Rights movement. And also recruiting lawyers, who were deemed essential to the cause.
The Communist lawyers, most of whom could have been true-believers, created the National Lawyers Guild, which positioned itself as the Knights in Shining Armor for the fight for equal rights in America. A large number of double agents were placed into the NLG, and that list would include Mark Lane, Michael Kennedy, Bill Kunstler, Bernadine Dohrn. In fact, these are the most famous members of the group.
In fact, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, and Dohrn were the CIA’s most highly prized super hotties. Rumors swirled around Fonda’s sexuality for decades. Dohrn, on the other hand, forced bisexuality on all her cadres during her crackpot “Smash Monogamy!” movement.
Fred Hampton was trying to turn the Panthers non-violent while Kennedy and Dohrn were supplying them with assault rifles and C4 and telling them to “kill cops.”
When Fred began denouncing the Weather Underground as lunatics, Chicago police connected with the CIA murdered him, and Dohrn arrived first on the scene to lead press and use his murder as her fulcrum to fame. You can’t imagine a more dishonorable act than trying to exploit Hampton’s death to provoke violence.
It’s the same thing as what happened when Ghetto Brother Black Benji was murdered on the streets of the Bronx. The Ghetto Brothers wanted a war with the gang that killed him, and came to promise blood revenge to Benji’s mother, who said, “My son was all about peace.” Instead of a gang war, the Ghetto Brothers organized the Hoe Ave. Peace Conference that ended gang violence and allowed for the rise of Hip Hop. Hampton had done the same thing in Chicago, ending the war between the Latin Kings, Blackstone Rangers, Gaylords and Vice Lords.
Watch The Americans series about KGB sleepers on Amazon and then imagine its Dorhn and Ayers posing as sane, normal people by day while plotting cop killings at night. The woman on the left plays the Michael Kennedy role (protector of the agents in the field).
They were in direct communication with Soviet, Cuban, and Chinese agents, all of whom advised them not to kill cops, or even use bombs. Of course, they didn’t follow that advice and kept up their terror campaign until it had zero traction left, so they came out of the cold and got university jobs with pensions. KGB sleepers don’t get that treatment, much less cop killers with three dead bodies to explain.
The author of the series says the CIA inadvertently gave him the idea for a series about spies, explaining, “While I was taking the polygraph exam to get in, they asked the question, ‘Are you joining the CIA in order to gain experience about the intelligence community so that you can write about it later’—which had never occurred to me. I was totally joining the CIA because I wanted to be a spy. The job at CIA, which he later described as a mistake, helped him develop several storylines in the series, basing some plot lines on real-life stories, and integrating tactics and methods he learned in his training, such as dead drops and communication protocols.
Thanks to deep pockets, the deep state was very busy in the 1960s, when a billion dollar slush fund for global operations was being administered in secret. The interest alone on these funds amounted to millions annually. It was all thanks to stolen treasure buried by retreating Japanese after they systematically looted China, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Indochina and the Philippines. Performed in the dead of night, the treasure burials were so secret the workers were often buried alive inside the tombs. Only a handful of members of the Japanese royal family knew about the operation, and they possessed coded maps to the sites. At some point, they had hoped to recover the loot, the value of which someday might reach several trillion dollars.
Apparently, since the Philippines is a Catholic country, Opus Dei and the Vatican may have washed the stolen loot into the banking system at the behest of our CIA, and this might explain why so many Catholics rose to the tippy top of the national security state. The operation had been under supervision of a WASP Boner from Yale, Henry Stimson, whose staff would soon rise to great power and influence. Whoever controls these secret funds today is the CIA’s most closely guarded secret. The interest has been a bottomless pit of secret funding for covert ops. There was a powerful alliance forged between Catholic societies and the deep state during the Cold War as both had an interest in suppressing the rise of Communism.
Those in power understand the importance of infiltrating the competition. If the other side is poorly funded and disorganized (and your side has deep pockets), it’s a simple matter to shower them with competent volunteers and generous donations, and within a short time, engineer assets into positions of influence. The object is to foster a competitive dialectic that insures your bottom line reigns supreme.
Communism attracted the attention of banks the same reason why rightwing dictators are so beloved by the CIA. Communism allows a small insider cabal to attain full control of the economy without messy complications of a democracy. The reason why a global liberation movement based on democracy never emerged is because no bank wants to fund third world democracy. The CIA could have easily created such a movement with the slush fund, but instead they had a different agenda.
In the mid-sixties, the Students for Democratic Society (SDS) emerged as the most powerful force opposing institutional racism and the organization was immediately penetrated by hundreds of FBI informants. We know this because the FBI files were recently uncovered through the FOIA. But what these FBI files didn’t reveal is a deeper layer implanted into the SDS at the same time by the CIA. A small fanatical group of Marxist-Leninists successfully led a takeover of the SDS that immediately destroyed the organization as an effective force in America. It was no accident.
Today, there’s a vast Tin Foil Hat brigade spreading confusion on what happened. One of their memes is that hippie culture was a CIA op that involved manipulation of the recording industry to foster drug use. In this scenario the deep state wanted to pacify disaffected youth. The same researchers spreading this meme, also promote “nobody got hurt at the Boston bombing,” and “we never landed on the moon,” and other obvious propaganda hoodwinks, memes deployed so real deep state researchers can be branded as conspiracy kooks.
By 1969, SDS was focused on resistance to the expanding War in Vietnam, and this is when two Marxist-Leninist groups attempted take-overs. One was the Progressive Labor Party and the other became known as The Weathermen. The PLP dressed conservatively and abhorred hippie culture while the Weatherman recruited exclusively through this culture. At the national convention in Chicago, the PLP was well-positioned to seize control of the rapidly expanding organization. That changed after Bernadine Dohrn engineered a dogma schism and staged a walk-out supported vigorously by hundreds of FBI plants. She also took along the mailing list and national files. Afterwards, internal FBI memos indicated immense agency delight in having blocked the better organized and more professional PLP from attaining the throne of power.
The entire FBI war on the Weathermen was inept beyond belief, and eventually it was the FBI who scrubbed 90% of the files when the government went after the FBI for Cointelpro activities, most of which were directed at the Panthers and the Weathermen. At least one FBI informant attended every single major pow-wow, indicating the command structure could have easily been rounded up early in the game. One informant grew angry by the inaction. Eventually, he was force fed LSD and assaulted physically and emotionally in an MK/Ultra-like behavior modification session designed to break his cover. Fortunately, he had palmed the LSD, and responded by scampering around the room on all fours squealing, “Yes, I’m a pig, oink, oink, oink.”
Communism in America ran largely through the National Lawyers Guild (NLG), which split from the American Bar Association over the issue of institutional racism. Funding and operational control of the Weathermen likely flowed through the NLG. Dohrn, who led the putsch that splintered the SDS was also the first law student organizer for NLG.
The most influential and vehement voice against Dohrn inside the counterculture was Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who had defused the Chicago gang wars and turned the Panthers non-violent. Dohrn responded by branding Hampton a counter-revolutionary.
Within weeks, Hampton was assassinated by Chicago police while asleep. His entourage was also riddled by FBI penetrations and Hampton’s bodyguard had left the door unlocked for the police after slipping his boss a sleeping pill. It was no accident that immediately after this vicious murder, the apartment was left wide open by departing police. And who was among the first to arrive? Why none other than Bernadine Dohrn, who led the press through the blood-stained apartment giving speeches on why the counterculture now needed to take up arms and start shooting police in retaliation.
This press event was deployed to catapult Dohrn into the spotlight, and for years her every press release received extensive coverage in the national media, far beyond any threat she actually posed to America. Dohrn and her handful of devotees, some of whom were undoubtedly CIA operatives, declared war on the United States, went underground, and began bombing police stations.
Dohrn and her cohorts considered Charlie Manson and Sirhan Sirhan their culture heroes, the same way most Marxists declare the insane John Brown a culture hero for sparking the Civil War. Strange that Brown’s militant abolitionist movement was funded by the founder of Yale’s Skull & Bones. It would seem instigating violence in support of rapid social change is not new. And oddly enough, Brown’s real role was not sparking black slaves to revolt, but sparking Southern States to secede so a war could commence simply by planting that fear in the Southern consciousness the exact same way Dohrn was implanting a similar fear in the minds of Middle American. So please don’t think the Weathermen were ever going to take over America. That was never the plan. The purpose of Dohrn’s celebration of violence, and the reason she got so much traction in the national media, is because her purpose was to paint the counterculture as violent in order that sane Americans would remain fearful of hippies, most of whom were non-violent and only promoting racial equality and ending wars of invasion. The more strident Dohrn’s insane rhetoric, the more effective she was in scaring Middle America. The war continued for years longer than it should have simply because Americans supported it, support propped up by intel psyops, the most important of which involved the creation of the violent Weather Underground.
Oddly enough Dohrn’s lawyer and NLG interface was a devoted Catholic raised in a Jesuit boarding school, which brings this blog full circle. You see, the Yale society that included Stimson and the many Bush boys, the one that funded John Brown, practiced rituals modeled on the original Bavarian Illuminati, a society created at a Jesuit university by a lawyer specializing in Catholic canon law. After the death of Tom Forcade, Michael Kennedy got control of High Times magazine and ran the counterculture institution into the ground while siphoning off profits for himself. Whilst claiming to support the world Communist revolution, Kennedy remained a most devoted Catholic his entire life, while leading the life of a patrician and climbing the social ladder in New York City.
The best evidence of Dohrn’s intel connection is that despite being linked to numerous bombings and raids that led to the deaths of policemen on both coasts, she came out of the cold and after serving just a few months in jail, skipped straight into a cushy university professorship with tenure and a pension. A much different fate awaits the real social revolutionary. Take Fred Hampton, for example.
The award-winning 1966 film Battle of Algiers documented the explosion of terror and violence that paved the road for Algerian independence. As Africa’s largest country…and rich in natural gas…Algeria was a choice plum for European imperialism. In 1830, under the shakiest of pretenses, the French invaded and within a few years 825,000 Algerians (one third the population) were dead.
The French confiscated choice lands and awarded real estate to European immigrants who arrived in droves, eventually becoming the majority in the capital city of Algeria. Citizenship was granted to Europeans, Christians and Jews, but Muslims were denied. The Jews became the go-between Muslims and French, and both sides initially tried to recruit them, although most sided with France, something they may have regretted after Vichy France began persecuting Jews. The Nazis built an ideological bridge between fascism and Arab nationalism fueled by mutual hatred. When the British and Americans landed in Africa, the Vichy forces initially tried to repel the Allies, but were eventually allowed to switch sides, greatly angering the free French forces led by Charles de Gaulle.
On May 8, 1945, the same day Nazi Germany surrendered, Muslim activists held victory marches that provoked violent responses from French occupiers. The ensuing street massacres put a lid on the simmering independence movement for almost a decade, but in 1954, the movement resurfaced in force through the appearance of the National Liberation Front (FLN), a merger of Communist and Islamic ideologies. The FLN began a savage campaign of assassinating Harkies and their dependents. Harkies were Muslims serving in the French army who acted as police. As many as 150,000 may have been murdered. Harkies and their families weren’t the only casualties as the French launched a counter attack on Muslims. As many as 700,000 perished and two million displaced during the eight years of unrelenting violence.
Shot in black & white, Battle of Algiers had the look and feel of a behind-the-scenes newsreel. Rather than take sides or mine the subject for emotional response, it coolly revealed turpitude and affinity for violence shared by both sides. Within a few months, the FLN became the template upon which the savage Weather Underground was created. Strangely, the leaders of that movement (which effectively destroyed the non-violent Students for a Democratic Society), were sons and daughters of the super wealthy, although they rounded up a handful of acolytes by preaching a twisted form of self-hatred for the American middle class, an indoctrination accompanied with drug-fueled orgies designed to break down individuality and moral codes. It had all the makings of a intelligence mind-control operation.
After the Weather Underground declared war on America and went into hiding, they divided into cells exactly like the FLN and began releasing communiqués exactly like the FLN, and informed their ranks millions would soon die in the coming war. Many of their parents would be forced into concentration camps once the revolution succeeded. The war was quietly launched with some small pipe bombs planted in police parking lots in the Bay Area, set to go-off during lunch hour. Although they never took credit for these two bombings, rest assured they were most likely the initial attempts to spark war between police and the emerging counterculture. Like all Communist revolutions, the Weather Underground cell structure was designed to protect the organization’s leaders from exposure once the killing began. In truth, the Weather Underground cells had been penetrated on inception, although the many FBI informants planted in the lower ranks, had no idea the key lawyer running and funding the organization had his own mysterious connections to counterintelligence.
The springboard used to catapult the organization into the national spotlight was the murder of Fred Hampton by Chicago police connected to counterintelligence. Not so coincidentally, Bernadine Dohrn was immediately on the scene leading the press on tours of the murder site (strangely left wide open by Chicago police) while giving lectures on the need for reprisals, despite Hampton’s total dedication to non-violence. Hampton was rising inside the Black Panthers, the most respected black rights organization, and leading the membership away from armed insurrection and toward what Hampton dubbed “the rainbow coalition.” Hampton was the biggest detractor of the Weather Underground inside the counterculture and dubbed the group as insanely “Custeristic.” So you can see how killing Hampton served the interest of the Weather Underground while also allowing them to exploit his death as a fulcrum for convincing clueless teenagers to support violence as the only logical response.
The blood bath they plotted was severely hampered, however, when their first major bomb blew up while being constructed in New York City and killed three of their own. The mega-bomb had been planned for a cadet dance at Fort Dix but instead destroyed a million-dollar townhouse in Greenwich Village. The deaths sent shivers through the organization, and the leaders rapidly dialed back on future murder plots, although the “kill-cop” rhetoric continued unabated and infected many others. Eventually the Weather Underground would be responsible for four police murders, but played a role instigating at least fifteen others fomented by the United Freedom Front (1), Symbionese Liberation Army (1), and Black Liberation Army (13). But that’s just the tip-of-the-iceberg, because our interventions in Indochina resulted in 3.5 million deaths, and many of those could have been avoided had the senseless war ended sooner. Had a vast majority of Americans rejected the war early on, President Nixon would have been forced to dial back. But by presenting the counterculture in such an intensively negative light, the Weather Underground made sure middle America sided with the President’s reasonable requests for the rule of law and order to prevail.
Even stranger is the fact that after Timothy Leary was renditioned back to a high security cell and held in isolation while enduring the most savage interrogations of his life, he caved and told everything he knew about the Weather Underground that had broken him out of jail, provided him with a fake passport and whisked him off to Algeria to join forces with Eldridge Cleaver in fomenting a wave of violence. They even had put out a press release claiming Leary was now “armed and dangerous” and ready to join the ranks of the immortal cop killers, unrepentant murderers the Weather Underground lionized. Strange that upon his caving, the word immediately went out that Leary was a stool pigeon. Predictably, the head of the National Lawyers’ Guild called for someone to assassinate Leary, a feat designed to send a message to future traitors to the Communist cause. Unpredictably, Leary was taken out of prison and driven around the country so he could point out the safe houses he’d stayed at while describing the occupants in great detail. During this escapade, a revolver placed on the floor of the vehicle by the FBI agent in the passenger’s seat slid back into Leary’s view, and he realized he could easily pick it up and assassinate both cops. Fortunately, he declined to touch the weapon, and that likely saved his life, for I feel sure had he picked up that gun, he would have been instantly killed on the spot. Strangely, although Leary spilled all the beans he could, his confession never amounted to an arrest or interrogation of anyone. Soon the principle leaders of the terrorist Weather Underground would emerge from hiding, but only after all the FBI files on them mysteriously disappeared, which allowed them to accept high-paying gigs at major universities. Now retired, they continue to collect pensions.
Meanwhile, there’s an attempt to whitewash the Weather Underground as being led by earnest radicals, instead of exposing the organization as the state-sponsored counterterrorism psyop it really was. The purpose of the organization was not to foment a revolution as that concept never had a prayer of success due to their tactics. The real purpose was to frighten middle America away from supporting the peace movement sweeping the country, something they were easily able to accomplish with some random bombings and advocation of Charles Manson and Sirhan Sirhan as counterculture heroes. But there’s a karmic load that accompanies violence and a day of reckoning is coming. You only have to turn this log over to see the vermin hiding underneath.
The proletariat must organize lawyers in various countries who sympathize with the liberation struggle. Together with the legal bureau of the International Red Aid (IRA), organize in every country, in particular England, the USA and Japan, and strive to enlarge the number of new cadres. IRA directive issued in at the Second International Conference, Moscow, 1927.
Admission to the bar is not just about training, but moral character and a sacred oath to uphold the Constitution. Participation in conspiracies involving subversion, violence and terror is a gross violation of this oath. The National Lawyers Guild was founded by Communist Party members to spread a Communist agenda. Of course, propaganda was designed to make the Guild appear as a do-gooder champion of the little guy. Behind the scenes a different story was unfolding.
It would be naive not to realize the Communist Party has been dotted with spooks of all persuasions since inception. They did not provoke the revolution in Russia, they subverted a democratic/socialist government that had emerged. The first act of the revolution had been to abolish the death penalty, as the Czars secret police had murdered so many. The first act of the Communists (Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin) was to reassert the death penalty and use it on the Czar and his family, including the children. This is all you need to know about the origins of Communism.
My thesis is that a group of secret agents were sent into this orbit for the purpose of managing counterintelligence operations. These lawyers were pretending to submit to Communist dogmas, but were really spooks reporting to the highest levels of the national security state.
In the 1960s, the primary mission of this operation was to outflank the emerging peace and freedom movement by fomenting acts of terror that would drive the population toward the political right.
The spearhead of this infiltration was Louis Boudin (working with John Reed and Jay Gladstone), and later passed to Boudin’s nephew, Leonard, whose daughter Kathy would join the Weather Underground, assist the assassination of three police in a failed bank robbery, and wind up a tenured professor at Colombia University. Go figure.
In 2008, Boudin was Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence at New York University’s School of Law, lecturing on “the politics of parole and re-entry.”
The takeover of the Russian revolution by a small cadre funded by Wall Street was mirrored by the Weather Underground takeover of the SDS funded by the National Lawyers Guild.
The USA was undergoing a zeitgeist shift in the 1960s. Large numbers of teenagers were slipping off the mind control leash and questioning their parent’s knee-jerk support for the Pentagon’s Cold War. The operations put into play to derail and deflect this emerging zeitgeist were immense. Fifty years later, I’m still trying to untangle the complex threads. All it takes is identifying who was pushing violence as their primary solution in the 1960s, and then seeing if that person achieved mysterious mainstream success later on in life.
As a general rule, left-wing terrorists are not given professorships with tenure and pensions by major universities, a trajectory reserved exclusively for spooks. And keep in mind, not all spooks know who they work for, and even the few who do are provided information on a need-to-know basis. When people say 9/11 can’t be an inside job because someone would have talked, keep in mind the CIA was manipulating the student youth movement for decades before anyone spilled any beans. And derailing the student youth movement was a bigger operation involving more conspirators than 9/11.
William Kunstler, he must have been one of the “good guys,” right? After all, he was director of the American Civil Liberties Union and leader of the National Lawyer’s Guild. Unfortunately, both associations are infested with spooks. The ACLU was founded by Roger Baldwin, Crystal Eastman and Felix Frankfurter.
Felix became personal assistant to New York district attorney Henry Stimson in 1906, who became famous for his trust-busting investigations. Stimson was a Yale Bonesman who eventually served as Secretary of War for both Republicans and Democrats. Most important, he created the Black Eagle Fund to distribute trillions in stolen WWII loot into covert accounts, funds used to foment false flags, manipulate elections and arrange coups favorable to Wall Street around the world. Some of the money was used for operations on the right, some funded operations on the left. Left and right are wings of the same bird, manipulated for a predetermined dialectical outcome.
Felix eventually became a Supreme Court Justice. Clearly, these two men were on the establishment’s inside track. Crystal was sister to Max Eastman, who ran the primary Communist propaganda organ, The Masses, which assisted spook John Reed’s takeover of the socialist movement in America. Later in life, Eastman became a supporter of Senator Joseph McCarthy’s Communist witch-hunt, certainly a dramatic flip-flop. Roger Baldwin began as a devoted Communist as well, once claiming “Communism, of course, is the goal,” although ten years later, he led the purge of Commies out of the ACLU, when his execs were secretly meeting with the FBI and leaking names of members suspected to be red.
Sherman Skolnick was a Chicago investigator who learned how to locate copies of IRS 990-AR tax forms in public libraries, a document filled out by foundations and available to the public if you knew where to look. Sherman discovered the CIA was routinely using a variety of foundations for financing the radical left. Very soon, he was accusing Rennie Davis, Tom Hayden, Lee Weiner and Jerry Rubin, leaders of the student youth movement, of accepting funds from CIA sources, specifically the Carnegie Foundation, the Student Health Organization, the Institute for Policy Studies, J.M. Kaplan Fund, Aaron E. Norman Fund, New World Foundation, and the Roger Baldwin Foundation. Skolnick claimed the Chicago 7 trial was a staged event and that the Nation magazine, Pacifica Radio, National Public Radio, and Democracy Now were all at least partially CIA-financed. Very few took Sherman seriously at the time and he was branded a conspiracy kook, even though he did manage to take down a string of corrupt judges in Illinois connected to organized crime.
But if you examine the pro bono lawyers representing the Chicago 7, the trajectories into national fame become somewhat suspicious. Aaron Sorkin’s Chicago recreation on Neflix has problems, especially when it comes to the Black Panthers. In the film Bobby Seale is shown taking direction from Fred Hampton. Seale is large and well-built, while Hampton shorter and less athletic. This is the reverse of the truth: Seale was a short, skinny dude compared to Hampton. Seale is bound and gagged only for a few minutes because he erupts following a police assassination of Hampton. In fact, Hampton was not assassinated by police until December, while Seale was gagged in October for multiple days in court before his case was severed from the other seven. The correct chronology is crucial to understanding events.
The film makes it seem Hampton was killed for giving legal advice to Seale, when, in fact, he was killed much later because he was about to become chief-of-staff for the central committee. Hampton was leading the Panthers into non-violence. Only William Kunstler is shown as the group’s lawyer, when, in fact a team of litigators was involved, including Michael Kennedy and his mentor Michael Tigar, both ardent Communists, (or so they claim). This trial was carefully stage-managed and there were multiple intel “influencers” placed in crucial positions. The left and right have always been under supervision, and influencers like Tom Hayden, Jerry Rubin, Jane Fonda, Bill Ayers, and Gloria Steinem behave suspiciously like operatives. In the case of Steinem, the CIA connection has been proven. All social movements of any size are penetrated by alphabet agencies. But no where are intel influences more crucial than among the pro bono lawyers themselves, which is why I suspect Kunstler and Kennedy were operatives, which would explain why they always supported terror while actively encouraging an intel takeover of the SDS.
“The world is a better place without the Kennedy brothers….two of the most dangerous people who ever lived….Any black guy who shoots six cops, and puts the fear of god in police officers, I think is great….If it comes to a revolution, all of my moral scruples would have to go out the window…” –William Kunstler
They missed Kunstler’s combover and hulking gait and made him look way too reasonable. Why was this case dragged on for months on the front pages? The judge was doing a Roland Freisler imitation and it was clear any ruling could be overturned upon appeal, which is exactly what happened. In the sixties the KGB put a huge effort into recruiting leftwing lawyers as secret operatives. You’d be foolish to think the CIA wouldn’t counter that operation by embedding double agents into that sphere, something easily accomplished. The Panthers were infested with agents from a variety of alphabet agencies. Hampton did not rise to the level of “needs execution” until he became nationally known, and his murder was instantly deployed by the Weather Underground to turn the counterculture toward violence, the very thing Hampton was trying to avoid, calling such action “Custeristic.” The trial of the Chicago 7 is a window on the real world once you figure out who the agents are (hint: they push violence as the solution.)
While the FBI was turning black activists against each other, the CIA was providing automatic weapons and C4 to violent blacks and creating groups like the Symbionese Liberation Army to spark race war, same mission their MK/Ultra Charlie Manson was promoting. Hampton was a serious obstacle because he was one of the few counterculture leaders intelligent enough to denounce the tactics of the Weather Underground. They were able to use his murder as the excuse why people needed to “bring the war home.” Dohrn was leading the press on tours of Hampton’s blood-stained apartment a few hours after his murder. It catapulted her into national fame. By taking out the leadership of the counterculture and student revolutions, putting them in jail for months after an excessively long and protracted trial that served to polarize the nation, a leadership vacuum was created. And when Fred Hampton stepped in to fill it, they used his murder to anoint a new leadership in blood.
Today, Rennie Davis is a venture capitalist who runs the Foundation for a New Humanity; Tom Hayden is a former California State Senator who works for Harvard’s Institute of Policy Studies; while Lee Weiner went from the Mossad-infested Anti-Defamation League to becoming Vice President of AmeriCares. “Do-good” organizations make the best covers and fulfilled that role long before John Reed was employed by the Red Cross in Russia.
But this story runs wider and deeper than just the Chicago 7.
In 1969, Fred Hampton was fully illuminated and enlightened, a man with a brain on fire, but tragically he would soon die. In fact, his death was the fulcrum around which the CIA launched an epic attack on the peace movement with coordinated operations from within and without. Examination of the crime yields an understanding of deep politics. At one time, Hampton, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. were all viewed as potential black messiahs. All were assassinated by the state just for achieving that status, and spooks like Jesse Jackson inserted in their place. In hindsight we can see Hampton’s premeditated murder was mined by counterintelligence.
Hampton had just ended the bitter internal street-gang warfare in Chicago by uniting the various gangs into his “rainbow coalition,” a term he coined. He was a tremendous athlete who could have gone professional in several sports, although he yearned to play center field for the Yankees. He built sports groups instead of gangs, and encouraged multi-cultural activities and ceremonies. He was a tremendous inspiration, especially for James “Chef Ra” Wilson, who deployed Hampton’s tactics to combat racism at Urbana High School, uniting jocks, longhairs, blacks and greasers.
Hampton was not murdered because he was giving legal advice to Bobby Seale, he was murdered because he was the first pacifist elected to a national leadership role the Black Panthers and was leading the organization down a different path.
Six years earlier, on October 31, 1963, an anonymous tip from “Lee” a confidential FBI informant, revealed some men in Chicago were planning to kill JFK, who was due to visit the following day. At the same time, a landlady called police to report four rifles with telescopic sights had been discovered in a room she’d just rented (a room overlooking the route JFK was soon due to follow). The Secret Service was notified and JFK’s trip to Chicago was cancelled. Strangely, Arthur Thomas Vallee was one of the men at the apartment, and he had been previously posted to the CIA’s secret base in Atsuki, Japan, along with Lee Harvey Oswald. The base launched the U-2 spy planes. Both Vallee and Oswald had since been involved with anti-Castro Cubans in New Orleans, and both were moved into offices overlooking imminent presidential parade routes. A Secret Service agent in Chicago blew the whistle on the cover-up of these facts, but he was swiftly silenced and threatened with jail. His name was Abraham Bolden. But the important name to remember is the policeman assigned to spy on Valle: Daniel Groth.
Six years later, Groth arrived at the house where Hampton and several other Black Panthers were asleep. They arrived by firing into the front and back doors simultaneously and then crashed into the apartment. Over 90 shots were fired, from revolvers, machine guns and rifles, and all but one round came from a police weapon, and it hit the ceiling after the Panther holding the gun was fatally wounded. So the police took no incoming fire during the raid. Hampton was sleeping with his pregnant fiance Deborah Johnson (due in 2 weeks) when they were awakened by gunshots coming through the walls. He had been previously drugged by an FBI informant inside the group, who disappeared before the raid began. Consequently, he could not respond to the crisis. The bedroom door flung open and bullets began zipping into room, striking the mattress and walls. Deborah rolled on top of Hampton to shield him, but she was quickly pulled off by two officers, one of whom dragged her to the kitchen. She heard two shots fired from inside the bedroom, and an officer asked, “Is he dead? To which Groth laughed, “he’s good and dead.” Groth had executed the black messiah with two bullets to his head.
Terror is the primary tool of counterintelligence ops, and the murder of Fred Hampton terrorized the counterculture peace movement. Although Hampton was a devoted pacifist, his death would be instantly exploited to turn the peace movement violent. And the steps down that garden path were led by two fringe members of the Students for a Democratic Society who orchestrated a takeover.
Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn pulled off their takeover of the SDS and it was not unlike the takeover John Reed supervised over the socialist movement many decades earlier. Funny how some people with the same last name were involved with both ops. And wasn’t it convenient Ayers and Dorhn were located in Chicago, and could arrive at Fred Hampton’s murder site and lead the press on tours of the kill zone the following day. Dorhn had graduated from the University of Chicago and become the first law student organizer for the spook-infested National Lawyers Guild.
“We felt that the murder of Fred required us to be more grave, more serious, more determined to raise the stakes and not just be the white people who wrung their hands when black people were being murdered,” Dorhn would later remark. But she didn’t talk like that until years later. In the sixties, she mostly spouted rhetoric like “kill the pigs!” In fact, she celebrated Charlie Manson as a counterculture hero, and declared 1970 the year of the fork and created a three-fingered “fork salute” after the stabbings of the pregnant Sharon Tate by Susan Atkins. “They even shoved a fork into pig Tate’s stomach! Wild!” said Dorhn, comments her husband now contests.
You can’t imagine a more dishonorable act than celebrating the memory of peacemaker Fred Hampton by deploying his death to foment violence, but that’s exactly what the Weather Underground did. They soon declared war on the United States and announced a plan to exterminate all those who supported the government, a sort of insane mass ethnic cleansing of hippies perpetrated against straight people that never had any prayer of success, yet the rhetoric continued for years while the Weather Underground orchestrated terror attacks. Never once have the two leaders expressed regret for lives lost or the ramifications of their evil rhetoric.
Now fast forward and realize despite well-publicized meetings with enemy agents from foreign lands, despite fomenting hundreds of bombings and encouraging blacks and other activists to go violent, despite providing explosives, guns and training to criminally insane characters, and despite being the most wanted domestic terrorists of their time, Dohrn and Ayers walked straight from a life in the underground to university jobs and pensions.
Dohrn and Ayers always had a reputation for the high life. Most of their time in hiding was apparently spent at a luxurious California beach house, sleeping between clean sheets, drinking expensive wines, living a life of relative luxury in comparison to the Weather Underground rank and file they were leading down the CIA dialectical rabbit hole.
“I don’t regret setting bombs,” says Bill Ayers today (even though one killed an innocent San Francisco policeman). “I feel we didn’t do enough.”
Didn’t do enough? The Weathermen disgraced the memory of Fred Hampton, murdering innocent people in his name, and were responsible for co-opting his visionary, peaceful, rainbow coalition.
Meanwhile, Timothy Leary was soon railroaded into jail on trumped up charges, and the Weather Underground were brought in to bust him out. During that episode many press releases went out indicating Leary was now armed and dangerous and supporting the Weather Underground tactics. They wanted him to join forces with Eldridge Cleaver in Algeria to foment an armed insurrection led by black militants. But Cleaver didn’t trust Leary, and after decamping to Switzerland, and then Afghanistan, a letter written by Leary’s wife outlining their future itinerary was discovered by an Orange County police officer who’d made tracking Leary his personal vendetta. Soon Leary was in solitary confinement, being worked over, and eventually agreed to spill the beans on everything he knew about the Weather Underground.
Strangely, spilling the beans never amounted to an arrest of anyone, although it did spurn William Kunstler to make a public plea for Leary’s assassination after Leary fingered Michael Kennedy as the secret leader of the Weather Underground. Kennedy had to go into hiding until he smoke cleared, although he would soon go on to steal High Times magazine from the employees. There are other characters involved with the magazine who also deserve close examination, most notably Ron Rosenbaum, Chip Berlet and AJ Weberman.
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:
