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.
Addendum from Influencewatch.org
In separate books detailing the history of the Weathermen, professional historian Arthur Eckstein and Vanity Fair journalist Bryan Burrough used law enforcement documents and personal recollections of numerous former Weathermen leaders to demonstrate that through at least May 1970 the organization aggressively promoted efforts to kill police officers and military personnel as part of its goal of sparking the violent overthrow of the U.S. government.
As late as 2003, several former Weathermen leaders were the subject of a federal probe into the February 1970 bombing-murder of a San Francisco, California, police officer that occurred two days after a known-Weatherman bombing that injured police in nearby Berkeley.
Eckstein and Burrough both provided strong evidence that two coordinated Weathermen bombing plots set for March 6, 1970, were intended to produce massive fatalities among police in Detroit, Michigan, and among military personnel who would be attending a dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
Despite a significant investigation, costing an estimated $86.6 million in 2020 dollars, the FBI was never able to catch and secure prosecution of any major Weatherman participants, two of whom appeared on the Bureau’s list of ten “Most Wanted” fugitives.
Cunningham told Burrough that radical San Francisco attorney Michael Kennedy was “the most important friend” the Weathermen had. Kennedy and his wife were close friends of Dohrn. Burrough also described Kennedy as a having a “close friendship” with San Francisco attorney Leonard Boudin—father of Weather member Kathy Boudin, one of the two survivors of the townhouse explosion.
Another example is Michael Kennedy’s alleged assistance as a participant in the (Weather-assisted) plot to break Timothy Leary out of prison. Burrough wrote that Kennedy denied all involvement and survived an FBI investigation of the jailbreak without being indicted, but also that Leary “in multiple interviews” had described Kennedy “as the driving force behind everything that happened.”
Burrough wrote that after 1970, the above ground support allowed the top Weather leadership—Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Jeff Jones—to move into a “modern gated home” in a waterside San Francisco suburb that one visitor describes as a “big, glamorous house” that included a “beautiful deck” and “four bedrooms” that were “totally empty.” However, Burrough noted this was not the lifestyle of non-leaders, who “lived on the edge of poverty,” and that the disparity led to resentment.
Cathy Wilkerson said the leadership trio would “go to restaurants we could not afford” and that the disparity in lifestyle between the leadership level and her level “became really gross.”
What this penetrating expose fails to mention, however, is that Leonard Boudin’s uncle was partnered with John Reed when they created the American Communist Party. They were both working for American intelligence, posing as commies when they were really rich members of the American aristocracy. Communism was pushed by intel as the most favored oppositional energy because it was so easily manipulated by an insider cabal and because its membership was brainwashed to accept orders from the central committee without hesitation.
The Weathermen was a CIA operation created to undermine mainstream opposition to the Vietnam War by posing as antiwar terrorists.
