Revilo P. Oliver is a clue to the JFK assassination

Revilo P. Oliver

Once you identify the principle polemicists salting the intel-sponsored propaganda, you’re halfway to enlightenment; and once you identify the major memes those polemicists are salting, you can easily ID a lot more spooks and avoid their rabbit holes to nowhere. Anyone supporting obviously fake memes is either a spook or hoodwinked true believer and there is no other option. Spooks and true believers can’t be trusted, so divide conspiracy research into two categories, trusted and not trusted, and learn from both categories. With practice and a keen eye for detail, you’ll soon be learning more from the disinfo than the authentic intel (mostly because there’s a lot more noise than signal). But you must avoid falling into the traps, what I call the rabbit holes, the biggest of which is racism in any form. The most powerful forces promoting ethnic cleansing are spook-driven, manufactured to assist the war-for-profit scenarios with their divide-and-conquer propaganda, something always easily identified.

The post-WWI generation was turned against Jews in many ways and on many levels, but mostly through Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, both of whom demeaned the culture whenever possible. These were the two most influential novelists when novels were an influence. At the time, Jews were not integrated into high society, not allowed to join the country clubs or fraternities of the oligarchy. Instead, rich Jews had their own aristocracy centered on families holding stock in the Federal Reserve, the ones who also owned some of the biggest investment banks, the ones linked to names like Rothschild and Warburg. This division between these two powerful oligarchies along the Eastern seaboard was intentional and in place prior to the Civil War. They are still separate in some quarters.

I suspect Revilo P. Oliver worked for OSS during WWII. He was a brilliant intellectual and mastered a dozen languages, and was considered an expert in the origins of religion. He taught at the University of Illinois, where I grew up, evolving into a major player on the national stage.

Residing walking distance from campus on Ohio Street, Oliver could be seen slouching off to his office in the Classics Department wearing an enormous black fedora and ankle-length trench-coat, looking like a parody of an intelligence operative. His vicious letters to the editor of the News Gazette probably served mostly to recruit members to the local lodge of the John Birch Society, an organization Oliver had a hand in creating.

Soon, however, his buddy William Buckley, a Boner from Yale who ran the National Review, dropped Oliver as a contributor. And then the Birch Society began purging the most virulent racists off their rolls, of which Oliver was the ringleader. Oliver responded by publishing evidence the Birchers had been overrun by the same Jews manipulating the State Department, United Nations, and world-wide Communist conspiracy.

During Halloween, local children in his neighborhood collecting donations for UNICEF were warned in advance to steer a wide birth from his block, lest they cross his path and engender a political rant on the evils of globalism.

“When my sister was reading Nancy Drew she and Connie Marshall, whose dad became a federal judge, went all around the Oliver’s house tapping the walls for secret entrances,” recalls Mary Gates DeRosier. “Mrs. Oliver had a funeral for her dog and invited the neighbors. My mom went and told us that the dog was laid-out on the sofa surrounded by flowers. Mrs. Oliver was always giving us flyers about the dangers of Coca-Cola and of fluoride in the drinking water.”

Oliver moved on by helping to create the National Alliance, now known as the National Vanguard, the wellspring from which many generations of terrorists with strange links to intelligence operations have sprung. Funny, how nobody writes or talks about Oliver today, except his supporters, even though his role as a spook propagandist should be obvious with hindsight.

Soon after JFK’s assassination, Oliver published a dissenting opinion claiming JFK was a communist who’d been murdered by the communists because he’d decided to “go American.” He claimed Lee Harvey Oswald had been trained by the KGB, and the Warren Commission had been preordained to claim Oswald was a lone assassin. This was published after the commission was announced, long before the 888-page report appeared. Oliver’s theory was peppered with distortions and outright fabrications, as well as some amazing secret truths, evidence of inside sources. The government, especially the State Department, was heavily penetrated by a secret communist conspiracy run by Jews, claimed Oliver, and as evidence he cited the impossibility of a Marine formerly posted at our most secret base in Japan defecting to Russia, and then freely returning to America, and yet not monitored by the FBI. This could only happen if the State Department was infested with cooperating communist conspirators claimed Oliver, ignoring the more obvious explanation Oswald was an American spook who was returning from a failed penetration operation in Russia.

“The identification of the murderer was a near-miracle. If not the result of divine intervention, it was the result of a series of coincidences of the same order as might enable a bum with a dollar in his pocket to enter a casino in Reno and emerge with a thousand,”noted Oliver, in another one of his many spot-on assessments. This miraculous identification and capture of Oswald began with the murder of Officer J.D. Tippit. Oswald’s wallet was discovered at the scene, along with four spent cartridges from his revolver. Strange Oliver could recognize the anomaly of Oswald’s strangely trouble-free re-entry into the USA after supposedly defecting to the enemy, but missed this highly improbable wallet, especially considering Oswald was captured an hour later with a wallet in his pocket (and a revolver that didn’t work). Which means the wallet at the scene must have been planted. There’s also the witnesses to the Tippet slaying who claim Oswald was not the man they saw fleeing the crime. The only other option is believing the official story Oswald murdered Tippet, then calmly emptied his revolver, tossed his wallet on the ground and then fled the scene, found a new wallet with ID, found a new revolver (that didn’t function) and discarded his working revolver, which is the version Oliver opted for in this instance.

“Americans known to be opponents of the Conspiracy, including General Walker, prominent members of the John Birch Society, and leaders of other conservative organizations, began to receive threats of death by telephone from creatures who somehow knew that Kennedy was dead before he reached the hospital,” wrote Oliver. I believe this detail is also spot-on in that Texas John Birch supporters put up the $150,000 to pay the shooters and were among the first notified of the mission’s success, but salting that observation with the lie these calls included death threats to the paymasters is an obvious misdirection that recalls Edwin Stanton’s efforts to claim he was a target of the Lincoln assassination conspiracy, and not one of the instigators himself.

Oliver was especially harsh on the then director of the Council on Foreign Relations, the recently-fired former CIA head, Allen W. Dulles. “Dulles was the head of an American spy ring in Switzerland during the Second World War and is said to have done a fairly good job,” began Oliver, “although it was believed at the time that his organization was infested with double agents who were really in the employ of the Soviet — and even more serious implications can be drawn from the testimony given in Karlsruhe last July by Heinz Felfe, a Soviet agent who had been Mr. Dulles’ German counterpart and supposed competitor in Switzerland.” Yes, Dulles was head of OSS in Europe and was posted in Switzerland, and recruited the bulk of the Nazi spy network into the CIA in a secret surrender with Malta Knight Reinhardt Gehlen, who was later rewarded by becoming head of the West German secret services, but Felfe was a minor figure when posted in Switzerland compared with Dulles, and just one of many spooks accepting pay from all comers.

“One writer has recently suggested that it was the C.I.A. that arranged the assassination of Kennedy; I know of no evidence to support that opinion, but obviously Mr. Dulles’ creation is open to suspicion. Perhaps that is why he is a member of the “special commission,” wrote Oliver in a brief and startling moment of spot-on clarity that was instantly jettisoned.

Oliver claimed the commission would paint “Comrade Oswald as a poor, lone critter who done it all alone. Probably ‘psychiatrists’ will be produced to prove he done it ’cause, at the age of six months, he had to wait an extra five minutes for his bottle.” Strange that Oswald was likely worked on by CIA psychiatrists while a teen in New York, prior to his being hypnotized by David Ferry while a member of Ferry’s Civil Air Patrol in New Orleans. The fact he knew the outcome before the investigation began was yet another spot-on.

Oliver was called before the Warren Commission to testify, and I imagine that was a scripted encounter. Mark Lane was another one of the few independent investigators allowed to present evidence directly to the Commission. It took me decades to realize Lane’s testimony was likely scripted as well, for he was also a former OSS officer, and was likely guided into a role as the premier debunker of the official story. He soon tainted himself by embracing Willis Carto’s holocaust denial movement. Isn’t it strange that both Oliver and Lane were on polar opposites of the political divide, one far left the other far right, and yet both believed in a Jewish conspiracy running the world?

If you want to find a contemporary salter of disinfo, check out Jan Irvin, who treads in Oliver’s footsteps with lies and distortions. Irvin produces propaganda supporting the theory the hippies were created by the CIA, and that Tim Leary, Ken Kesey and me are employees of that agency, and not its critics. Since I’m on the inside of this particular conspiracy theory, it’s impossible for me to ignore Irvin is making shit up. So I put him in the “not trusted” category. And wouldn’t you know, he also believes Jews are running the system through some secret satanic cult based on the teachings of Aleister Crowley, which just confirms my suspicions intel is exploiting Crowley for propaganda. But they do the same thing with their phony UFO evidence they are constantly manufacturing.

My advice: avoid any variation on any rabbit holes resembling: the Communists are running the world; the Jews are running the world; the Satanists are running the world, the aliens are running the world, or the CIA created the hippies.

The Single Bullet Theory

Bush and Specter.

The Warren Commission had problems right out-of-the-gate, and the biggest became known as the single bullet theory. Even though the wounds were tampered with and notes of the autopsy immediately burned, the official report had considerable difficulty explaining how one pristine bullet found on the stretcher at Parkland Hospital caused seven wounds in two men. The solution was invented by a young Philadelphia DA, who would soon rise to great heights in American politics. His name was Arlen Specter.

In 1964, Vince Salandria was a history teacher at Bartram High School with a law degree who did legal work on the side when Specter was invited by the local bar association to give a talk concerning his work for the Commission. Specter spoke in front of an audience of 150, and then asked if anyone had a question. Salandria stood up. “Your single bullet theory is a fraud, a magic bullet theory,” he began. “How could anyone support such a blatant absurdity?”

“Have you read the report?” smirked Specter.

“Yes, I have,” replied Salandria, “all eight hundred and eighty-eight pages.”

Specter was visibly taken aback. He’d not been expecting opposition on this dog-and-pony show, much less from someone so well-armed with facts. After JFK was assassinated Salandria told himself if Lee Harvey Oswald was killed before any trial took place, it would mean the CIA was behind the coup. When that happened, he drove to Dallas to investigate and interview witnesses. He met with Oswald’s mother, who told him her son was in the CIA, and she was very proud of that fact. In the Warren Commission Report, Specter had successfully painted Oswald’s mom as a lunatic. He tried sparring with Salandria but after losing every parry, Specter asked for a new question and moved on, his credibility somewhat shaken. It was a scary moment when the entire facade threatened to come down, and Specter would never forget it.

Salandria went home in an inspirational fever created by the audience’s reaction to his comments and composed the first critique of Specter’s theory, and soon had it published it in Philadelphia’s Legal Intelligencer, becoming an instant star inside a growing band of citizen researchers disputing the official story of JFK’s murder. These debunkers were virtually shunned because so few believed the CIA would kill its own President.

A few years ago a professor in Florida did his own digging around, and uncovered this document through the FOIA that revealed the CIA invented the term “conspiracy theorist” as a derogatory term to be deployed while dismissing critics of the Warren Commission Report. The document outlined a variety of strategies for debunking the debunkers.

In order to cement the fallacy of the conspiracy theorists they needed to invent some really nutty conspiracy theories, so what happened next is a string of whistle-blowers introduced mind-blowing new evidence in JFK’s assassination, and then began pursuing completely different conspiracy theories, often involving aliens, theories that could easily be swatted away, thus tainting and negating any JFK revelations.

Two of the original memes they introduced were “dead people are alive” and “living people are dead.” I don’t know which came first, Elvis or Paul, but both were extensively mined for this counterintelligence propaganda operation.
Here’s the photo that launched the Elvis meme and this story was also accompanied with the release of documents from Elvis’ DEA and FBI files. Not only had Elvis traveled to Washington DC seeking credentials as a Special Agent in the war on drugs, one of his airplanes had been investigated during a drug investigation. Elvis had zero to do with illegal drug-running, but he was a heavy user of legally prescribed narcotics.

Both the “Elvis is alive” and “Paul is dead” memes were promoted extensively by the Weekly World News, which I strongly suspect was deployed as a counterintelligence propaganda tool for dumbing down America, a role the entire media complex seems to be embracing these days.

More recently people inside the Air Force have confessed to planting fake evidence of alien visitations in the UFO community. And wouldn’t you know a lot of early JFK researchers ended up promoting the “aliens are here” meme. Most of this disinfo came in the form of forged “top secret” documents that never existed in the real world, and since intel deals with these sorts of memos every day, they know how to forge them and make them look really good.

The growth and spread of phony intel propaganda memes over the decades dwarfs the efforts of real citizen researchers, the noise to signal ratio is immense, and the landscape now includes “we never landed on the moon,” chemtrails, “no one got killed at Sandy Hook,” “no planes were used in 9/11,” and many, many more. As Goebbels noted, “tell a big lie, and stick to it.” Only I believe he was talking about the British MI6 propaganda and not his own.

Strangely, at the end of his long career, Specter invited Salandria to lunch at the Oyster Bar in Philadelphia. Salandria was surprised by this invitation and ended up doing most of the talking. He’d ended up losing his teaching job for promoting conspiracy theory among his students. Perhaps Specter was pumping him for the state-of-the-art in JFK research, or maybe he was trying to improve his karma. Specter’s last words were along the lines of perhaps he hadn’t been fraudulent after all, but merely incompetent. “You’re not that incompetent,” replied Salandria.

Inside the Great UFO Hoax

It all got rolling in 1947 when an Army public information officer captured a “flying saucer” on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico, a story covered prominently in the local newspaper. A few days later, however, the Air Force stepped in and changed the story to a downed weather balloon. Today, we’re told it was a Project Mogul balloon, a top-secret program that placed microphones at high altitudes to check for indications of Soviet nuclear tests. Free-floating spy balloons were being deployed covertly for intelligence gathering at the time, the predecessors of the U2 spy plane. There were many unexplained crashes in the Southwest over the next few decades.

Today we know Area 51 was the base where drones, spy planes and stealth bombers were initially developed. Obviously, whenever covert technology crashed, great secrecy was deployed to contain information from leaking to the Soviets. This may be why so many phony stories about UFOs began appearing in file cabinets of intelligence officers across the country and why some of those officers were instructed to intentionally misdirect the growing UFO community and monitor the success rate of the fake memes they were planting into it.

Unexplained globular lights in the sky are a longstanding phenomenon and their source remains unclear. WWII pilots referred to these lights as “foo fighters.” But it’s a long way from unexplained globes of light darting around the night sky, to little green men with bugged-out eyes jumping out of interstellar craft. If you look at the public record, you’ll find the stories of the little green men were initially planted and encouraged by intelligence officers.

The first big splash was created by Life magazine five years after Roswell when the following sentence appeared on the cover: There is a case for interplanetary saucers.

It’s important to realize both Life and Time were created by Henry Luce, a member of Yale’s powerful Order of Skull & Bones, which has deep connections to the CIA and military intelligence. These two magazines became a dominating force in the media almost overnight, and were frequently tools for counterintelligence propaganda operations. My guide for distinguishing real whistle-blowers from fakes is whether or not they appeared on the cover of Time magazine, because if they do, rest assured they’re an op and not some organic force for positive change. The initial Life magazine article quoted Air Force official Edward J. Ruppelt as the inside source on the UFO cover-up, although later in life, Ruppelt would repudiate these comments.

“British scientists are convinced these strange aerial objects are not optical illusions or Soviet inventions, but are flying saucers which originate on another planet,” wrote Dorothy Kilgallen, in a mind-blowing front-page story two years later, an article published in hundreds of newspapers. “The source of my information is a British official of Cabinet rank who prefers to remain unidentified. ‘We believe, on the basis of our inquiry thus far, that the saucers were staffed by small men—probably under four feet tall. It’s frightening, but there is no denying the flying saucers come from another planet.’”

While various insiders in the British and American military were planting these stories of contact with aliens, another wing of the military was studying the science of constructing Manchurian Candidates with drugs, hypnosis, psychic driving and complex play-acting. This was real voodoo possession at work and hundreds of people were dosed with LSD without their knowledge. Some were turned into hypnotic mind slaves, some were guided into field operations as sex toys, while others served as experiments to be monitored and worked on as the years went by. A decade after Life magazine broke the aliens-are-here story, the first alien abduction took place.

Barney and Betty Hill were one of the few interracial couples in the early sixties, and also members of the NAACP and the Unitarian Church, two organizations heavily penetrated by spooks. The civil rights movement was of great concern to intel, as was the student youth movement, and the Unitarian Church provided a base of operations for anti-war movements in college towns across America. I know because in my hometown of Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, the Red Herring coffeeshop, located in the basement of the Unitarian Church, became the local counterculture center of gravity, the site where most of our anti-war demonstrations were conceived and planned.

On September 19, 1961, the Hills were traveling home from a trip to Canada when they spotted a mysterious light in the sky. Soon, a strange craft landed in the road in front of them. Barney got out of his car to investigate, and saw a group of aliens observing him through the window in the craft. Barney became convinced they intended to capture him and his wife, so he quickly drove home in a panic. Two days later, Betty called Pease Air Force Base to report the encounter, and the following day Major Paul Henderson investigated. He wrote a brief report for Project Bluebook stating the Hills had seen the planet Jupiter, claiming it had been unusually bright that night.

Betty also wrote to retired Marine Corps Major Donald Keyhoe, head of NICAP, a civilian research group, and Keyhoe sent a parade of civilian investigators to collect more information. The NICAP came up with the hypothesis the Hills had been abducted and medically examined, as evidence by a three-hour time gap in their memory. On November 23, 1962, the Hills were introduced privately to Air Force Captain Ben Swett at their church, and Swett suggested they seek hypnosis therapy to recover the lost three hours.

In March 1963, the Hills made their first public admission to members of their own church, and in January 1964, they were hypnotized and tape recorded, while drawings were produced during the session to be presented as evidence.

The therapist concluded the couple shared a fantasy inspired by TV and films, one that had resonated in Betty’s dreams. He published an article in Psychiatric Opinion. Two weeks before the episode, the Outer Limits broadcast a show on aliens that resembled the story told by the Hills. The hypnosis session had a settling effect on the Hills, however, and they returned to their normal lives, although they never accepted the therapist’s opinion, and remained convinced the NICAP investigators were correct in assuming they’d been abducted. In October 1965, after being fed the story by the NICAP, a Boston newspaper put the Hills on their front page. This led to the publication of a book, The Interrupted Journey, which sold several editions, thus proving UFOs were highly marketable and worth big bucks.

An artist was brought in to sketch the aliens as described by Barney, although his image neglected the distinctive cap Barney had drawn previously on his own. Interestingly, Barney drew the alien hat brims turned to the side, ghetto-style.

A series of dots drawn by Betty was supposedly a star map used to guide the aliens, and very soon some highly inventive and creative theories emerged on what those dots might signify, each one more absurd than the next. Clearly, this story was getting embellished as time went on. I find it important to note the CIA’s MK/Ultra project also involved hypnosis (although often without people’s consent or knowledge), so I have to wonder if alien abductions weren’t deployed as a cover story for illegal mind control experiments in case the hypnosis wore off.

MK/Ultra was proposed by Richard Helms, then the CIA’s Assistant Deputy Director for Plans, to fund “highly sensitive” research using chemical/ biological substances to alter human behavior. It was approved by CIA Director Allen Dulles on April 13, 1953 and overseen by chemist Sidney Gottlieb, chief of the CIA’s Technical Services Division. Forty-four American colleges, 15 research foundations and pharmaceutical companies (including Sandoz and Eli Lilly), 12 hospitals, and three prisons are known to have participated. During Watergate, Helms attempted to destroy every document and file relating to the program, although he missed a few, which is why we have some inkling on the immense scope of the project.

Mark Pilkington is a remarkable dude with an impressive resume, a musician, curator and publisher-writer-editor specializing in the occult. He traveled to America to research UFOs. He also admits to being a crop circle hoaxer in his native England, creating vegetable sculptures to dupe people into believing in alien interventions. I’ve always wondered if the crop circle phenomenon was created by intel to feed the fires on UFO mania. Intel seems intent on embedding the most ridiculous conspiracy theories into the public consciousness as a way to deflect from the real conspiracies. The most interesting part of Pilkington’s trip, however, was he got an intelligence officer to admit to planting fake UFO documents and monitoring how those documents moved though the UFO community.

U.S. Air Force Special Agent Richard C. Doty, retired, confessed to being one of many leakers of UFO disinfo, and also admitted one of his primary targets, Paul Bennewiz, was driven insane by his faked UFO reports. Another primary target was William Moore, who wrote the first book on Roswell and was considered an influential voice in the community. Most of the documents you see circulating today on the web supporting the story aliens-are-here were fabricated by Doty and his crew of disinformationalists. It’s somewhat astounding this story leaked out through a book and film, and now the History Channel has an hour-long episode devoted to it, leading me to conclude this must be some sort of limited hang-out that skims the surface of what these  disinformationalists are up to.

But I also believe these revelations might help lead a few others to reject the aliens-are-here meme and other rabbit holes promoted by intel agents, and understand these memes are created for a purpose. Perhaps there’s a long-term strategy involving a fake alien invasion, but most likely, these projects exist primarily to brand researchers of JFK and 9/11 as conspiracy kooks.

A few years ago, a FOIA request by Professor Lance deHaven-Smith of Florida State University turned up a document proving the term “conspiracy theory” was invented by the CIA immediately after Warren Commission Report was released as a tool for combating citizen researchers across the country who’d been investigating the crime and could see through the fraudulent report. The strategy of inventing phony conspiracy theories was part of a strategy for painting critics of the Commission as crackpots. It’s been two years since deHaven-Smith published his findings in Conspiracy Theory in America (Discovering America) and still most Americans have no clue that by spreading stories about aliens, crop circles, chemtrails, we never landed on the moon, they are dancing to a tune played by the CIA. As the 15th anniversary of 9/11 draws near, I only hope more people will wake up and demand a Congressional investigation. Because the people have the power to make this right and end the longstanding war-for-profit hoodwink.

The CIA & the National Student Association

American delegation parades through Lenin Square.

After WWII, the Soviets began throwing world youth festivals and inviting attendance from student delegations from around the globe. These festivals drew interest from the newly formed CIA, created in 1947, the same year the National Student Association (NSA) was founded in Madison, Wisconsin, for the purpose of attending the Communist youth festivals.

Interestingly, both the CIA and the NSA have strong Catholic connections. William Donovan was an Irishman who ran intelligence operations during WWII and helped craft the CIA charter. Ever since, the agency has had a stack of Malta Knights in leadership positions, and you’ll find the same situation over at the Pentagon. Because of their diplomatic immunity and immense global connections, Knights of Malta are powerful people. As WWII was winding down, German Malta Knights and American Malta Knights worked together on hiding hundreds of war criminals in churches and monasteries until they could be spirited away to new identities in new locations. Many of these war criminals ended up working for the CIA on covert operations. Catholics were especially trusted by the Cold War warriors because they represented a major antagonistic force resisting the spread of Communism, and thus were useful in dialectical operations. Of course, the other major component of the CIA were Freemasons and members of masonic-style secret societies like Yale’s Order of Skull & Bones. Most revolutions (especially the Communist ones) were organized through these masonic lodges. These two powerful groups represented opposing sides of the managed dialectic that was driving the growth of the military industrial complex.

The NSA helped found the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, which organized the march on Selma and subsequent Voting Rights Act that followed. They also played a role in the formation of the SDS. In 1964, Michael Wood dropped out of college to work on civil rights in the Watts district of Los Angeles. He soon came to the attention of the NSA and was offered a job at their Washington DC headquarters. By this time, the NSA had a million members in over 400 colleges and universities and had grown into an immense operation. Woods was brought in as a fundraiser, but soon noticed there seemed to be little interest in fundraising, and, in fact, the top executives did their own fundraising through their own channels. Woods went to Philip Sherburne, president of the NSA, and announced he needed to have control over all NSA fundraising, or he’d have to resign. Sherberne invited Wood to lunch at Sirloin and Saddle, and that’s when Sherberne violated his secrecy agreement and explained most of the NSA funding was coming from the CIA. Apparently, the pair decided at that lunch this needed to end, for shortly afterwards, CIA funds began to dry up. Wood was blamed for the budget shortfall and soon fired. And after the firing, he told Marc Stone, the son of I. F. Stone, who happened to be the publicist for Ramparts magazine. The magazine staff was incredulous, but began investigating, and that’s when the CIA use of a complex web of foundations for covert funding began to unravel.

The CIA got wind of the investigation and tried to quickly organize a press conference with past NSA presidents, all of whom were willing to testify to the secret relationship while explaining the CIA never influenced NSA policy only provided millions of dollars with zero strings attached. When Ramparts found out about this planned preemptive strike, they placed ads in major newspapers to promote their impending scoop.

In truth, the CIA links inside NSA were first uncovered in 1964 by NSA president Steve Robbins, who was aghast to discover he was participating in a covert intelligence operation. When Robbins confronted his staff with the bad news, nine of them waltzed outside while fishing around their pockets for a dime in order to check in with their agency handlers on nearby payphones. Most of them were specialists in international affairs with offices on the top floor and all had been secretly trained by Langley for their jobs. Apparently, they all went on to bigger and better jobs in the agency. But in 1964, word of this never leaked, and the world may have never known had Wood not been fired a few years later and had lunch with Stone. After the story broke, Wood and some senior NSA officials fled to Greensboro, North Carolina. The NSA was briefly shattered internally as many departed, but that just left the remaining spooks firmly in control.

In 2015, Karen Paget published the expose of this story titled Patriotic Betrayal. She researched for years and assembled a treasure trove of classified documents through the Freedom of Information Act. Paget begins her book by explaining that in 1965 she’d been invited to dinner by two past leaders of the NSA, and later on, at a private residence, she’d been handed a classified file that explained the NSA was run by the CIA and her husband had recently been recruited into the agency. Although most NSA employees were unaware of this relationship, the ones that did were classified as being “witty.” Paget was introduced to her husband’s case officer, code name Aunt Alice, and asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement stating should she ever reveal these secrets to anyone, she’d be liable for a minimum of 20 years in prison.

Karen Paget.

Although Patriotic Betrayal is the best guide to this saga, I have to wonder if it might not be a limited hangout because nothing devastating is revealed beyond the money trail. And the fact the book was published by Yale University Press should raise suspicions that some elements might be missing. Paget violated her secrecy agreement, yet no repercussions followed in the wake of the book’s release. Operations are more complex than most comprehend, and when you have several billion in black funds to play with, the sky is the limit as far as penetrations go. I’m not saying Paget is a spook, although her husband certainly was, at least for a time, only that the documents released to her would have been carefully vetted. It would be naive to believe the vast CIA spook network has diminished over the years. If you wonder why zero national spokespeople on the left or right support independent investigations of 9/11, consider the left and right are parts of the same bird, and both packed with spooks. Very few of these operations will be revealed in our lifetimes. But if you dig around and keep an open mind, you might find evidence of their dialectical games as they unfold before your eyes in real time, because in politics little happens by accident. As JFK was fond to say, “In politics, things are made to happen.”

The CIA & the Student Youth Movement

Kunstler urges blacks to go violent.

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.

Bonesman Henry Stimson

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 exposed CIA funding of the radical left.

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.

Dohrn and her stormtroopers declare war on America.

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.

Inside Gandhi’s Secret World

Screen Shot 2016-08-28 at 11.42.08 AMGandhi has an interesting pedigree. At age 19, he departed native India for London, armed with a set of introduction letters to prominent Indians; he checked into London’s poshest hotel, ate at the poshest restaurant, and before long, looked and talked like a London gentleman.

He employed tutors in French, violin and dancing, and enrolled in the elite (and expensive) Inner Temple, quite an achievement for such a young immigrant. One thing I notice in my research is how many spooks get recruited while in law school. The Inner Temple is England’s most exclusive enclave for barristers, and named for its linkage to the Knights Templar, who were the original Illuminati rulers of money and monopoly during their heyday, before the King of France outlawed their order.

There are some notable connections that inspired Gandhi, inspiration that soon compelled him to give up dancing, violin, speaking French, and wearing Western clothes. Gandhi made contact with Helena Blavatsky and Ann Besant.

Blavatsky fabricated a head-spinning early biography that placed her in Cairo, Paris, London, New York, Chicago, Salt Lake City and San Francisco in the mid-1800s, where she supposedly held meetings with important mediums. She claimed to have become the only westerner to gain access to the holy city of Tibet, an obvious fabrication. She claimed secret masters had given her special abilities, among which were telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, controlling the consciousness of others, and materializing and dematerializing physical objects.

Annie Besant was involved in the fight for Irish independence, played a leading role in fomenting the rally that turned into “Bloody Sunday.” She was a leading speaker for the Marxist Social Democrats and her conversion to Theosophy was considered one of Blavatsky’s greatest coups. She soon established a new form of Freemasonry known as Co-Freemasonry. After Blavatsky’s death, she would take charge of Theosophy and her cohort Charles Leadbeater was an accused pedophile. It was Leadbeater who picked out a young boy Jiddu Krishnamurti, who they began grooming as a sort of New Age Jesus Christ. Besant and Ledbeater established a school for boys in Benares, the Central Hindu College, with the aim of building a new leadership for India.

Annie Besant.

Gandhi wrote a 150-page diary while in London, only 20 pages of which remain, leading to much speculation on those missing pages, although Gandhi did reveal that his contact with Theosophy is what got him interested initially in reading the Bhagavad Gita. Blavatsky, Besant and Gandhi would all play roles in the elevation of Hinduism into the world’s third largest religion. Like most Indians, Gandhi had zero awareness of the ancient Sanskrit documents because those had all been kept private by the Brahmins.

The history of India is a bit like the history of Sicily: one bloody invasion after another. First came Alexander the Great, then Arabs, Turks and Portuguese. Muslims ruled most of India for 800 years until the British East India Company seized control. India’s upper class, those Brahmins, typically collaborated with invaders to subjugate the masses in order to retain their status. English census workers created the term Hindu to signify anyone who wasn’t Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish or Jain.

Gandhi’s first published writings appeared in the Vegetarian, run by his friend and president of the London Vegetarian Society, Arnold Hills. Is it worth noting Hills was also the managing director of the Thames Iron Works, where Britannia’s greatest iron warships were constructed? Strange that such a bulwark of England’s military industrial complex would take an interest in what most people in England considered a passing fad, but throughout his career, Gandhi was supported by powerful people.

His arrival in South Africa was greatly distorted in the famous film, which shows him being ejected from a first class compartment. In fact, the dispute had been over Gandhi’s refusal to ride with blacks, whom he considered an inferior race. In an open letter to the Natal Parliament in 1893, Gandhi wrote: “I venture to point out that both the English and the Indians spring from a common stock, called the Indo-Aryan. … A general belief seems to prevail in the Colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner, with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw kaffir.”

Upper and Lower House.

None of his alliances come close to Gandhi’s infatuation with a rich German named Hermann Kallenbach, an affair that began in South Africa while Gandhi was formulating his philosophy of non-violence and non-cooperation. Kallenbach built a house just for the two of them and for two years they remained inseparable. Kallenbach became uncle to Gandhi’s children and the two corresponded for the rest of their lives. Interestingly, Kallenbach became an ardent Zionist and helped colonize the state of Israel. All Kallenbach’s love letters to Gandhi were destroyed at his request, but there remain a few penned by Gandhi who wrote that cotton wool and Vaseline were a “constant reminder” of Kallenbach…”how completely you have taken possession of my body. This is slavery with a vengeance.” Gandhi nicknamed himself “Upper House” and Kallenbach “Lower House” and requested the Lower House refrain from looking lustfully upon any woman. The two pledged “more love, and yet more love….such love as the world has never seen.”

Later in life Gandhi would sleep naked with naked teenage girls, and receive enemas from them several times a day. He claimed never to achieve orgasm, and encouraged others to follow this practice in order to retain their essential bodily fluids. He wanted India to return to the stone age and rejected all forms of technology, and falsely tried to position himself as leader of the untouchable class, ignoring the untouchables already had their own highly educated and inspirational leaders, people he pushed off the national stage. After Gandhi helped lead India to independence and partitioning into two nations, one Hindu, one Muslim, he responded to repression of non-Muslims in Pakistan by staging hunger strikes that were largely ineffectual and only served to terrorize his own followers.

After his death, correspondence surfaced of Gandhi encouraging German Jews to practice non-violence against Nazis, and he even suggested the English should surrender to Hitler to avoid war.

Tangled up in Spooks: The Bob Dylan Story

It would be difficult to describe the impact the cinema-verite masterpiece “Don’t Look Back,” made on my teenage psyche when first viewed in the summer of 1968 at the Illini Student Union. Bob Dylan had already transformed my generation with some inspiring folk-rock anthems when this glimpse behind the curtain appeared and made clear our hero was flawed, as heroes should be according to Aristotle. Dylan had plugged into the folk revival and rearranged some classics with contemporary lyrics, and since some of these concerned subjugation of the masses, the civil rights movement fit right into the paradigm, igniting the imaginations of kids everywhere, transforming Dylan into a lighting rod for social evolution. Almost overnight, he went from unknown to most famous songwriter in America. And when avatars like that appear, they draw spooks, because spooks seek influence over centers of psychic gravity. Creative energy and spirituality go hand-in-hand, as any student of improvisational theater can attest.

But Dylan soon disappeared and everything written about him became speculation, and rumors ran wild. I can’t pretend to have penetrated this world, but I do have some thoughts formulated over the decades.

No one attached themselves more firmly to Dylan than A.J. Weberman, who famously revealed the contents of the songwriter’s garbage, which is when the world discovered he was dabbling in hard drugs. Not only did Weberman hound Dylan physically and emotionally, he compiled a convoluted analysis of Dylan’s lyrics claiming to have broken a secret code that revealed Dylan was a Manchurian Candidate puppet who required liberation from his controllers. “Dylan’s brain belongs to the people, not to the pigs!!” shrieked Weberman, ignoring the obvious fact Dylan’s brain belongs to Dylan and nobody else. Weberman would soon write a book about the JFK assassination that correctly fingered the CIA for fomenting the heinous act, but built the thesis around E. Howard Hunt as mastermind, and never once mentioned James Angleton or Allen Dulles.

Weberman’s crowning evidence was unleashing pictures of the so-called three tramps, falsely claiming one was Hunt. In truth, Hunt was sent to Dallas that day, but did not participate, if you believe his death bed confession, which claimed Ted Shackley did it. Years later, during the Congressional investigation, the Spotlight would claim Angleton sent a memo to Helms wondering how they were going to explain Hunt being in Dallas. Or maybe not, since only two people claimed to have seen this memo, and one was Weberman, while the other was CIA. Fingering Hunt as instigator was a blind alley, but ignited Weberman’s book sales. When the Oliver Stone movie came around Ed Rosenthal’s Quick Trading republished the book and continued the hoodwink Hunt was grandmaster of the deed.

Mark Mordechai Levy, a close associate of Weberman’s, ran the militant JDO spin-off from Irv Rubin’s JDL. Levy tried to murder Rubin following the split when Rubin attempted to serve a subpoena on him. The bullets missed and wounded an innocent bystander. Levy served 18 months on a 4 1/2 year sentence for attempted murder. Obviously, Weberman and Levy have spook links and no doubt enjoy access to insider information. If you ask Weberman about 9/11, he’ll tell you Osama did it just like the Pentagon. Going through a target’s garbage is spook ops 101 and always has been.

To visit a completely different social strata, I was fascinated by Dylan’s 2004 autobiography (Chronicles, Volume One), especially by Dylan’s encounters with Archibald McLeish, prominent member of Yale’s powerful and highly secretive Order of Skull & Bones and former OSS operative. Broadway producer Stuart Ostrow had a massive hit with “1776” and wanted to follow-up with a musical remake of “The Devil and Daniel Webster” by Stephen Vincent Benet, with McLeish penning the script and Dylan providing the music and lyrics. Ostrow’s version of events differs significantly from Dylan’s, and the reason is obvious: At least three songs on Dylan’s comeback album “New Morning” were written for this production, but after a few meetings and some disagreements, Dylan dropped out of the project. Without Dylan’s music, it flopped, closing after three performances. Perhaps Dylan saw the flop coming as he writes: “MacLeish tells me about J.P. Morgan, the financier, that he was one of the six or eight persons at the beginning of the century who owned all of America…the play was dark, painted a world of paranoia, guilt and fear—it was all blacked out and met the atomic age head on, reeked of foul play….this play was up to something and I didn’t think I wanted to know….”

Undoubtedly, there were many more attempts from many angles to get a piece of Bob Dylan, and these but two examples. Dylan removing himself far from political and social spheres of influence was likely the only way to end the predatory intrusions into his life.

In 1966, Bob Dylan disappeared from public life, a response to being branded “the voice of his generation.” In fact, he’d been surrounded by spooks and predators of all stripes after seizing the center of gravity on a coming social revolution. Dylan sensed truth tellers were not going to be treated nicely by the masters of war, and sought protection in obscurity. The songs were no longer about making social change in our time, but about long-gone American history, as in John Wesley Hardin.

In 1971, when he resurfaced, he was asked about his obsession with the Kennedy assassination, and claimed he wasn’t obsessed, and the proof was, he never wrote a song about the event. Well, we know now that may have not been exactly true. Dylan may have been working on Murder Most Foul for a long time. But he wasn’t ready to make it public until we reached a national crisis of significant proportion to Kennedy’s killing. Born in 1941, Dylan is not technically a boomer, but like many boomers, was transformed into Hamlet. And like Hamlet, wavered with indecision.

In 1991, I wrote the first national magazine article on how the CIA assassinated the president. Little did I know this article, which I considered so groundbreaking, would sound the death knell on my journalism career. That’s another story, but rest assured, truth telling against the CIA is not permitted in the mainstream.

Dylan will be 80 soon, and could be feeling his mortality, and this song may be his attempt to wash his hands of the event that stole the soul of the nation. Hopefully, a new generation will take the song seriously enough to look into the real forces that have shaped our wars of invasion over the decades since Kennedy died while trying to end a planned war in Vietnam, which was largely fought over oil and opium, and not to end the spread of communism. The spread of communism in America was always run by James Angleton since being founded by intelligence agent John Reed.

There’s no doubt Dylan has been a student of the assassination but he’s not interested in identifying the perps, who are now long dead, but charting the impact on our collective unconscious, our media, and the trajectory of our social identity. It was a dark day in Dallas, November ’63.

The Original Hash Rebel

Michael Baumann, (aka “Bommi the Bomber”), Germany’s greatest rock star revolutionary, died last night after a long illness. In 1975, while on the run, he published a banned book that repudiated his violent past and his many bombings (none of which took any lives), by explaining that after being raised in the post-WWII ghetto of East Berlin, he had been trained towards violent behavior his entire life. But after a few years of promoting terror against the state, he’d realized this was a path the authorities wanted him to pursue.

It’s taken decades for me to absorb some of the nuances of the 1960s counter-revolution. Why has most everything gone so wrong since then? Recent discoveries lead me to believe revolutionary terror is encouraged by intelligence agencies, a conclusion Bommi came to earlier than most. The pro-democracy student movement in Germany in the 1960s was also called SDS and it was also non-violent, at least until June 2, 1967, when the second day of an ugly protest against the visiting Shah of Iran took place in Munich.

To counter the protesters, the Shah unleashed a goon squad attacking the crowd with wooden bats, cracking heads and inflicting serious damage while police melted away, temporarily disappearing. During the melee, a student named Benno Ohnesorg was executed by a policeman with a shot to the back of his head. Still wracked with PTSD from WWII, Germany went into a state of shock after newsreels of the beatings and killing appeared on tv, and despair intensified after the policeman, Karl Kurras, was found innocent of wrongdoing.

The bloody terror campaign of the Beider-Meinhof RAF gang that followed reminds me of similar actions undertaken by the bloody Weather Underground immediately following the assassination of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton by the Chicago police. Notice the leader of the Weather Underground and the leaders of the Neo-Con movement that fomented two devastating and unnecessary wars all emanated from the Rockefeller-funded University of Chicago. This is no accident in my judgment. Like the Weather Underground, the RAF was led by grandstanding publicity seekers who favored plush lifestyles, not the sort of lower-class upbringing Bommi sprang from. Also, Bommi did most of his actions with a sense of humor, something severely lacking in the RAF and Weather Underground.

While I can’t pretend to have penetrated the ranks to determine which German revolutionaries were double agents, Manchurian candidates or true believers, I can tell you with absolute certainty Karl Kurras was an agent of the East German Stasi intelligence agency. And in 1972, Bommi gave an enormous list of names of everyone he knew during an epic interview with the Stasi.

Before he died, George Orwell did the same thing for MI5. It was Orwell who’d first explained how the revolution is actually a mirage secretly created by agents of the state to draw the rebel moths to their flames. If you read between the lines, you realize 1984 is an expose of Communism as a controlled dialectic created by Capitalism, which is why all Communist revolutions are fascism in sheep’s clothing.

Bommi says he was arrested by Stasi while crossing the border with a fake passport and was given the option of telling Stasi everything he knew about the movement (and they had plenty of inside intel to verify if he was telling the truth), or he would be shipped back to West Germany to rot in jail. Bommi also says Kurras was useless as a spy after Ohnesorg’s murder because he became the most infamous policeman in Germany. Spooks need to hide in the shadows and once a spotlight falls on them any future operations become difficult to conceal.

Bommi’s book, “Terror or Love” is only $15 on Amazon. If you want an illuminating look at how a 1960s revolutionary woke up and denounced all terror, you can’t do better than this book. The Western press did not even note his passing.

Late in life Bommi became a very successful businessman and real estate investor. I’d always hoped to interview him some day so I could probe some of the nuances. Sadly, that won’t be happening. RIP Bommi.


Psychogeography & spiritual evolution

B. F. Spath has just released a masterpiece of psychogeography, a little-known occult art form that emerged out of the French counterculture of the late 1960s and one that’s been evolving through a small handful of radical European artists ever since. With this book, Spath strikes his claim as an American grandmaster of the order.

Psychogeography involves telepathic emanations and psychological impacts of specific locations and also improvisational wanderings through new environments, a quest whose purpose is the act of questing into the unknown. In Spath’s case, however, this translates into a fascination with Battery Park in Lower Manhattan, once a sacred site for Native American ceremonies, and from the 1770s through the 1800s, one of the premier ceremonial sites for Europeans in North American. Before the advent of Ellis Island, immigrants arriving in Manhattan landed mostly here, and it was from these docks many clipper ships departed for distant shores in search of opium, spices, silk and china. For someone buried in the basement of a Lower East Side tenement, Battery Park becomes the key psychological escape from the suffocating claustrophobia of modern life.

The book involves the sacramental use of cannabis for making telepathic contact with ghosts of ancient ceremony and ritual, and the perils that sometimes afflict the intoxicated.

Since Spath is one of the founders of the Pot Illuminati, I’m hoping this book sparks great interest in the coming revolution in cannabis spirituality, a movement I expect to overtake many established fundamentalist religions someday.

The most important thing about the Pot Illuminati is the one rule: “don’t hurt anybody,” and while we respect the rituals of ancient religions and study their histories, we reject all dogma as false, and don’t recognize leaders, except in respect to the most creative among us. We don’t fund-raise or collect money from anyone for anything, which make us the only non-corruptible religion on the planet.

The ancient city of Balkh, once a jewel of the Silk Road although now long abandoned, is some of the geography I’d like to explore someday, perhaps even following the Oxus River down to the Caspian and Black seas, a route traversed by the original stoner tribe. There are spiritual sites dotted all through the Caucasus Mountains created by this cannabis-using tribe, as well as a ring of settlements buried in mud around the rim of the Black Sea, settlements that were engulfed by a tsunami created when the Bosphorus Strait was breached due to rising sea levels. Someday this area will become a mecca for pilgrims seeking a connection with the origins of cannabis spirituality.

Origins of the Jewish Conspiracy Theory

Sometime around the year 1000, rumors of Christian children being abducted by Jews (who allegedly drained their blood to make matzoh) began circulating around Europe, leading to some mass executions and ethnic cleansing. Images of babies being tortured by Jews were painted on cathedral walls to incite the hatred. For centuries, most Christians had been intentionally kept illiterate and only priests, monks and those of noble birth taught to read and write. Jewish children, on the other hand (like their Moslem cousins), were literate and educated in the basics of math. This imbalance undoubtedly led to envy and fear. Jews had evolved as intellectually superior to the peasant underclass, which is why they’ve won a fifth of Nobel Prizes, despite being a mere .2% of the population.

Manipulating people with “blood libel” scams worked for a long time and kept peasants focused on hating Jews rather than toppling the predatory oligarchies that enslaved them, but eventually, the story began to fade simply because there never was a shred of truth.

But in 1903, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion appeared alleging  a secret council of Jewish leaders was planning planning to instigate a world war, a document initially circulated by Russian secret police. Russia was the world powerhouse in oil at the time and were pumping half the world’s crude, an operation divided between a Russian oil company, the Rothschilds and the Nobels. In America, Rockefeller was making similar moves to capture the North American oil industry.

In 1905, Vladimir Lenin and Alexander Bogdanov created the Bolsheviks, who quickly attracted funding from J.P. Morgan and Rockefeller. Within a decade the Czar was dead, Lenin in power, and control of the Russian oil fields up for grabs. Armond Hammer was installed as the go-between for American big business. At its core Marxism was a science-based religion, designed to supersede out-dated magic-based religion. Immense Vatican resources were immediately mobilized to prevent its spread. An alliance was forged with capitalist WASPs aided by Knights of Malta and Boners from Yale.

On November 13, 1918, a strange document (SDDF 861.00/5339) was circulated at the highest levels of the State Department titled “Bolshevism and Judaism.” It included various memes lifted from the Protocols and also alleged the Russian Revolution had been financed primarily by Jacob Schiff along with the Kuhn, Loeb & Company, known agents of the Rothschilds. According to a British intelligence source, there was definite proof Communism was an international movement controlled by Jews. This meme also appeared in Germany to assist the rise of the Nazis.

If fact, Schiff had been a strong opponent of Lenin and Trotsky and the Rothschilds lost their Russian oil connection with the murder of the Czar. And while it is true nearly 20 percent of the original Communists in Russia were Jewish, most (like Trotsky) disappeared early on and were deported, murdered or sent to Siberia. During WWI, the oil fields of Russia, once the largest producer in the world, remained dormant, something that undoubtedly benefited Rockefeller’s rise to power. In 1924, after Lenin’s death, Stalin took power and began investing heavily in revitalizing the oil fields. He hired the Koch family to build a series of refineries, which is why they are among the richest families in the world today.

Founder of the CIA Allen Dulles plays a role in this story. His grandfather was Secretary of State under President Harrison, while his uncle served that same post for President Wilson. As did his brother, who was also head of Wall Street’s old money law firm Sullivan & Cromwell. The Dulles brothers rose to the tippy-top of beltway power, thanks in large part to support from their (by-marriage) cousin David Rockefeller. Dulles was educated at Princeton and always a bit sensitive about his club foot.

He became a spook out of college and went directly into the Diplomatic Corps and became sheep-dipped as a knight in shining armor by returning from Europe in 1922 to write an expose on the Protocols in the New York Times, where he revealed the Protocols cribbed material from a variety of sources (meaning they weren’t secret notes from a world council of Jewish leaders). When old money has plans for one of their knights, they make them an important influencer fast as possible, sort of like the way Skull & Boner John Kerry was run around the jungle in Vietnam for a few minutes to appear as a valiant soldier in combat mode, when really he was faking it for the cameras the whole time and never in any sort of danger, all preparing him for a future role as the nation’s leading anti-war vet. Something similar happened with young Dulles.

In 1940 he went to work for William Stephenson, head of British intelligence in North America. They had friends on Wall Street funding the rise of Hitler and Communism in the hope of producing an epic clash of cultures that might be milked for profit for years. The military-industrial complex was but a glean in their eye and speck in their heart, but within a few years it transformed into the dominant force in America.

So when you pass along those phony social media posts alleging the Rothschilds own all the central banks, or that Jews are evil, keep in mind this is a well-worn trail blazed by intelligence agents. Whenever race is deployed to incite fear, it’s always a hoodwink. Religion is a tool for keeping people brainwashed and by pitting religions against each other, war-for-profit is easily manifested. The masters of war have been running these games for a long time.

In 1991, another chapter on the Protocols story appeared when former Navy officer William Cooper published Behold a Pale Horse, a crazed rant claiming the Illuminati were working with aliens to control and manipulate events and that the driver William Greer had killed JFK with an alien weapon because he was about to reveal the true story of the alien interventions.

Notice how a real bit of information (CIA killed JFK) is discredited by leading it down a rabbit hole. William Greer did strangely come to a near-stop in the kill-zone just as a nearby pedestrian unfurled an umbrella. But he certainly did not shoot JFK, although a doctored version of the Zapruder film was soon circulating in which the sun flare off a bald head in the passenger seat was made to look like a revolver going off in Greer’s hands.

Cooper kept releasing amazing kernels of truth inside his disinfo dumps because that’s the best place to hide truth. Cooper claimed AIDS had been man-made, not mentioning the most likely scenario, which is it resulted from monkey kidneys being used to grow vaccines, a relatively short-lived process, yet this is how the original polio vaccine was grown and we know it was contaminated with SV-40.

Cooper claimed the global conspiracy fomenting world war in the 1900s wasn’t Jewish at all. They were Freemasons, and specifically the Illuminati. And Yale’s Skull & Bones was a main chapter. He claimed children were being put on drugs and hypnotized to create school shootings.

Cooper became the foundation upon which the phony Q-Anon conspiracy crowd was constructed, while his book became the most widely-read tome in the prison system. Manufactured whistle-blowers can be divided into two categories: The Tin Foil Hat Patrol, characters like Cooper (and David Icke and Alex Jones) who steer deep state research into rabbit holes, and The Shining Knights like Allen Dulles, John Kerry, Daniel Ellsberg, and Edward Snowden.

But in 2001 Cooper began dropping his biggest bombshells. The alien documents he’d been shown were all fakes and there were no aliens.  He predicted the deep state was planning an operation to jumpstart another war, and it would be fomented through a false flag terror event to be blamed on Osama bin Laden. Seventy-five days later, it happened exactly as he’d predicted. He continued promoting that theory on his shortwave radio network for another 55 days until shot dead by police officers attempting to take him into custody on November 5, 2001.
