Roy Cohn, Donald Trump, Michael Jackson and Bill Clinton

1927. Roy Cohn born. His father is Albert Cohn, a New York State Supreme Court justice and prominent Democrat.

1937. Roy Cohn is introduced by his father President Roosevelt at age 10.

Spring 1949. Roy Cohn writes a memo on Albert Hiss.

1950. The Judge presiding over the trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg called Roy Cohn from a phone booth and asked him if they should get the death penalty.

January 1953, Roy Cohn becomes Chief Counsel for Joseph McCarthy’s Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations; Robert F. Kennedy becomes assistant counsel.

1954, Cohn tries to punch Robert Kennedy at the McCarthy hearings. Roy Cohn: “And I got pretty tee’d off. And as we were walking out of the hearing room, we sort of came up against each other, and I said to him I…. something to the effect that I thought that was a pretty shoddy thing to do. And one word led to another and finally he was screaming at me and I was going back to him, so finally I said, “Well, look, this is no place to have an argument. You want to settle it, let’s step outside and settle it.” At that moment Senator Mundt [Karl E. Mundt], someone intervened, and fortunately because, as I say, I don’t think my physical condition, not being a mountain climber or running kayaks up and down the Colorado River or something, I don’t think I would have been too much of a match for him. But anyway, that fist fight was averted.

1958. Herbert Hoover is filmed by Roy Cohn at the Plaza Hotel. ” Mrs. Rosensteil claims to have attended the orgies with her husband in 1958. On the first occasion Hoover, whom Mrs. Rosensteil had met and recognized, was wearing ‘a fluffly black dress, very fluffy, with flounces, and lace stockings and high heels, and a black curly wig.  ‘He had makeup on, and false eyelashes. It was a very short skirt and he was sitting there in the living room of the suite with his legs crossed. Roy introduced him as ‘Mary.  Young boys joined the party and engaged in sexual activities with Hoover, Cohn, and her husband, according to Rosensteil, who said Hoover had one of the boys read from the Bible while the other played with him.”

December 1962. Roy Cohn on Bobby Kennedy: “I saw Bobby next at George Sokolsky’s funeral, which was in December of 1962. We were both honorary pallbearers. And we had a very—I was sort of running things, in charge of the arrangements, and Bobby came. I shook hands with him cordially and I said, “The family is, I know, very appreciative that you came up”—which he thought was very amusing, because I got a kickback afterward that I had the nerve to say to him that the family was appreciative he came up or something like that but….

November 22, 1963. JFK assassinated. Roy Cohn: “when, in November of 1963, Bobby received the phone call of the attack on his brother in Texas, Bobby was at that moment having lunch with Morgenthau at Bobby’s home in Virginia discussing my case.”

December 5, 1964. United Dye and Chemical Corporation stock fraud case.  Bobby Kennedy and Roy Cohn.  “Three of the six sentenced yesterday testified for the Government in its case against Roy M. Cohn and a co‐defendant, Murray E. Gottesman. A Federal Court jury exonerated Mr. Cohn and Mr. Gottesman of having conspired to obstruct justice in the United Dye case.”

June 6, 1968. Robert Kennedy is assassinated. Roy Cohn: And then, finally, after the last Morgenthau grand jury was about over with, he came up with another indictment, the end of ’68 followed by still another superseding indictment really in January of 1969, which was a six count indictment that went to trial in September of 1969 and took two and a half months, and the jury was only out a little over three hours and acquitted me on each and every count. And within a matter of a few days thereafter President Nixon [Richard Milhous Nixon] fired Morgenthau. Getting back to—and of course by this time, Bobby Kennedy had met with his unfortunate demise.

September 8, 1969. Cohn writes a letter to FBI Director Herbert Hoover. “When I started fighting Communism as a young voice in the wilderness of the Justice Department, I suppose I realized that those who did not like what I was doing would be after me for a long time,” Cohn wrote on Sept. 8, 1969, according to documents obtained by The Post. “You are such a great institution up and down this nation, that I hate to see you diverted or annoyed for even a minute — thus my sense of deep regret.” Hoover wrote back eight days later: “Your generous comments regarding me are indeed gratifying.”

October 16, 1971. Cohn acquitted of all charges Bus Line case.  Mr. Cohn was accused of concealing required information in two proxy statements and an annual financial report to the Securities and Exchange Commission and stockholders of Fifth Avenue Coach Lines when, he was general counsel for the bud company five years ago.

From Behind the Pine Curtain: “Ben Rose informed the New York City Detectives that in November of 1971, three boys, ages 14-15 years, were sexually abused and then murdered in his apartment on East 64th Street in New York City by three men he identified as Dr. (name deleted) (a surgeon), (name deleted) (OPEC), and (name deleted) (CIA). The bodies were then transported to Connecticut by car and then buried on a farm.”

“During the investigation by the New York State Select Committee on Crime, information was received that Roy Cohn (famed attorney who represented Senator Joe McCarthy at the notorious McCarthy Hearings) helped in covering up the murder and the disposal of the bodies. When Cohn was questioned about the murder of the three 14-15 year old boys at Ben Rose’s apartment, he stated that he was aware of what had happened, but would comment no further. Information at that time was that Cohn was often used to compromise people and, if situations such as those described by Rose occurred, Cohn would take care of them.”

June 2, 1973. The 97-foot Defiance catches fire and sinks offshore of Florida, killing Charles Martensen. Roy Cohn collects insurance. Martensen’s father developed information that his son was shot and wanted the FBI to salvage the boat to investigate. The FBI refused.

April 1977. “Trump and Ivana go to opening night of Studio 54. The owners were impresarios named Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, and their lawyer was Roy Cohn.” “What went on in Studio 54 will never, ever happen again,” Trump told writer Timothy O’Brien. “First of all, you didn’t have AIDS. You didn’t have the problems you do have now. I saw things happening there that to this day I have never seen again. I would watch supermodels getting screwed, well-known supermodels getting screwed on a bench in the middle of the room. There were seven of them and each one was getting screwed by a different guy. This was in the middle of the room. Stuff that couldn’t happen today because of problems of death.”

January 27, 1983. Also from Consortium News:, quoting Roy Cohn: “’I had one interest when Tom [Bolan, Cohn’s law partner] and I first brought Rupert Murdoch and Governor Reagan together and that was that at least one major publisher in this country would become and remain pro-Reagan,’ Cohn wrote in a Jan. 27, 1983 letter to senior White House aides Edwin Meese, James Baker and Michael Deaver. ‘Mr. Murdoch has performed to the limit up through and including today.’”

I took the call and called her to tell her. Ten minutes later, Donald called to say thank you.” The New York Times quoted Donald Trump: “’I’m no different than any other brother that loves his sister,’ Mr. Trump said when asked about Mr. Cohn’s pressure on the Reagan administration. ‘My sister got the appointment totally on her own merit.’”

Why would Fox News hide the rest of Epstein’s flight logs?

The entire internet seems to think that Bill Clinton took 26 flights on Jeff Epstein’s Boeing 727. There is no public evidence of this, however. All the sources that discuss these supposed 26 flights reference a May 13, 2016 article from Malia Zimmerman at Fox News:

“Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by” – Malia Zimmerman, May 13, 2016.

The flights of Bill Clinton that we know about were released by Bradley Edwards, a lawyer for some of Epstein’s victims. There are nowhere near 26 in them- count for yourself. Of course Malia isn’t claiming there’s 26 flights in these documents; she’s saying she’s seen additional documents.

If Fox News indeed obtained additional records of Epstein’s flights, why didn’t they release them? There are only a few reasons. 1. They lied and made up a story again. 2. They are protecting Epstein’s network.

The public is starting to figure out that “liberal” and “conservative” media is all a mirage. Sure, places like Fox News, and (pick your own liberal example) bring the public plenty of content designed to outrage their audience, but when it really comes down to it, they are on the same team.

In fact, at the time the story was written in 2016, Fox News was owned by 21st Century Fox. “On July 27, 2018, 21st Century Fox shareholders agreed to sell the majority of its assets to Disney for $71.3 billion.” That’s right, the same Disney Corporation that owned ABC, that spiked the story on Jeffrey Epstein.

Fox will go at the Clintons to an extent that it benefits Republicans at the polls, but does not provide any real basis for prosecution of the Clintons. If that happened, the Clintons would in turn tell everything they know about crime in the Republican party. And then if the mechanisms that control America’s political parties are exposed, that leaves no cover for the transnational crime groups which also control the multinational media, a key to their continuing prosperity.

Consider Fox News’ reporting of Vince Foster. Fourteen years after Foster’s death, in the run-up to the 2008 Presidential election. “On the July 22 (2007) edition of Fox News’ Hannity’s America, teasing a segment on ‘the mysterious death of Vince Foster,’ host Sean Hannity asked: ‘Did a close friend of Hillary Clinton commit suicide, or was it a massive coverup?’” And then Hannity dropped it.

Turns out Russia didn’t have to worry about Hillary in 2008 anyway because of the rise of Barack Obama. As Buck Sexton recently said, “Russia invaded eastern Ukraine, picked off Crimea, and shot an airliner out of the sky killing hundreds of civilians *WHILE OBAMA WAS PRESIDENT* And none of that got 1/1000th of the attention or outrage from the media that Trump’s phone call with Zelensky has.” It’s hard to argue with that. IMO, Russia/Fox News media policy can be described as “anyone but Hillary,” as Hillary would likely have taken a much harder line against Russia than either Obama or Trump. In any case, Russia didn’t want her, and Fox abides- but only to an extent to swing elections, not “lock her up” for real. If that was the case, they wouldn’t obsess over her emails.

There’s more than enough information on to convict Hillary Clinton of Obstruction of Justice in the investigation of Vince Foster. It’s proof, not conspiracy theory. I don’t mean maybe. How many of you regular Fox News viewers know that the DailyMail reported in August 2016 that FBI files on the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s handling of Foster’s documents had gone missing from the National Archives? But I’m sure you know of every detail of her mishandling of emails that would have resulted in a slap on the wrist if she was convicted. It’s politics, not prosecution.

I said earlier that one of the possibilities why Fox News would not release the supposed extra Epstein flights is because they lied and made up a story again. That’s exactly what Malia Zimmerman is accused of doing in a lawsuit by Rod Wheeler. She and Ed Butwosky falsely attributed comments to Rod Wheeler regarding Seth Rich. Those two had a source, Seymour Hersh, who in turn claimed to have a source in the FBI. Those two did not want to be honest about the sourcing for an article on Seth Rich, and conspired to find a way to attribute their information to Rod Wheeler.

So which one is it, Fox News viewers, is Fox lying or are they covering up up for Epstein’s network? The additional flights, if they exist, would surely expose more than Bill Clinton.

On the last line of Zimmerman’s article on the supposed flight logs Fox News had obtained, Zimmerman quoted Alan Garten, a lawyer of Trump: “There was no relationship between Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump,” he said. “They were not friends and they did not socialize together.”

That was May 13, 2016. “Katie Johnson” had filed a rape lawsuit against Jeff Epstein and Donald Trump April 26, 2016. Malia didn’t mention it.


Prince Andrew thinks his use of conspiracy terms “pizza” and “adrenaline” will protect him.

When it comes to guilt by association, it doesn’t get much worse than frequent involvement with Jeff Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, as Prince Andrew is finding out. Andrew recently stepped down from his “public duties” (whatever that means, I’m an American). He’s agreed to speak to the FBI, but won’t fly to the U.S. because he thinks he may be arrested.

Public Duty

The charges against Epstein thus far have amounted to statutory rape and human trafficking for that purpose.  We still don’t know how bad this scandal is, however.  There’s a growing sense that the scandal includes some of the worse crimes imaginable.

I like to be “facts-based,” and the evidence on these conspiracy theories has been a little thin to blog on up until now.  That was before Prince Andrew’s November 11 interview (full text here) where he made deliberate references to the conspiracy theory buzzwords “pizza” and “adrenaline,” drawing reference to “pizzagate” and “adrenochrome.”  Just the simple fact that Andrew mentioned pizza and adrenaline so prominently in this interview while denying any knowledge or involvement with Epstein is noteworthy. First let’s look at his use of the word adrenalin.

Andrew: “I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenalin in the Falkland’s War when I was shot at and I simply…it was almost impossible for me to sweat.”

Is Andrew saying that he can’t sweat in the literal sense, or the figurative one? Not only does it seem like an odd subject of conversation, there is reporting of Andrew actually sweating well after the military conflict between Argentina and Britain occurred over the Falkland Islands.

On April 3, 2018, “QAnon,” whoever or whatever that is, published some photos and made claims that there were underground facilities on Little St. James Island.  This led to the “adrenochrome” theory, that victims were terrorized and murdered to harvest a hallucinogenic substance that your body produces under tremendous stress.  

I couldn’t dismiss this theory as nonsense because when I was researching the relations of the Clintons to Epstein and Maxwell, I found these February 12, 2000 photos of Andrew, Trump, Maxwell, Epstein, and Melania, and they appear to be under the influence of some type of drug.

(Photo by Davidoff Studios/Getty Images)

October 31, 2000 is another date where Trump and Melania have the same goofy look on their face. Just so happens that Prince Andrew was with them. Just so happens that Prince Andrew was with Ghislaine Maxwell this day too, and is wearing the same suit.

I researched the history of “adrenochrome.”   In 1950, Dr. Humphrey Osmond is credited with discovering adrenochrome.  Osmond found that adrenaline had a similar molecular structure to mescaline.  He said an overproduction of adrenalin was associated with schizophrenia and determined that vitamin B3 aided in recovery.  Osmond, along with writer Alduous Huxley, first coined the term “psychedelic.”

In 1951, Osmond left England for Canada where his research was subsidized by the Rockefeller foundation.  They experimented with LSD, mescalin, adrenalin precursors and derivatives, and later published the results of their studies.  They had a very interesting conclusion.  “We concluded that LSD did not act as an hallucinogen per se but that it induced an increase in the production of adrenochrome which was the hallucinogen.”  

It’s hard for most people to believe that prominent politicians and VIPs would be involved in torture and murder.  I believe it’s possible because when I researched Bohemian Grove to separate facts from rumor, I couldn’t escape the conclusion that human sacrifices had occurred there as part of a blackmail operation.  There’s just too much information there over too long a period of time from too many sources.  Nevertheless, I couldn’t bring myself to say anything about adrenochrome until Prince Andrew mentioned adrenaline.

Yes this is where your politicians hang out.

Further still, a former IT contractor for Epstein on Little St. James Island reported that he saw a room full of the same t-shirts, white Lacoste polo, size medium. The maids there said Epstein only wore one shirt a day and that the old one was cut into rags for the maids to clean with. It’s conceivable that this was done to provide an alibi for any DNA that might wind up on Epstein’s shirts.

On to Andrew’s use of “pizza.” The famous photo of Andrew, Ghislaine and Virginia was taken by Jeff Epstein with Virginia’s camera on March 10, 2001. Andrew doesn’t remember anything about that, but does remember going to get pizza on that very day. Andrew: “On that particular day that we now understand is the date which is the 10th of March, I was at home. I was with the children, and I’d taken Beatrice to a Pizza Express in Woking for a party.”

The interviewer asked, “Why would you remember that so specifically? Why would you remember a Pizza Express birthday and being at home?” Andrew replied: “Because going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me to do, a very unusual thing for me to do.”

Well alrighty then Andrew.

Pizzagate” has received plenty of attention thanks to Mike Flynn. It involves Hillary Clinton, Satanic rituals, and it even has its own wikipedia page.  Just briefly, in case you don’t want to click the link:

In November 2016, Michael T. Flynn, then on President-Elect Donald Trump’s transition team and Trump’s designate for National Security Advisor, posted multiple tweets on Twitter containing conspiratorial material regarding Hillary Clinton. They alleged that Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, drank the blood and bodily fluids of other humans in Satanic rituals, which Politico says “soon morphed into the ‘#pizzagate’ conspiracy theory involving Comet Ping Pong.” On November 2, 2016, Flynn tweeted a link to a story with unfounded accusations and wrote, “U decide – NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes w Children, etc … MUST READ!”

None of this is court evidence, I know that. It’s just that when someone is getting anxious about being investigated and starts making references to other crimes, unfounded or not, that’s reason to believe that they are saying they will disclose evidence and not be prosecuted alone.

Bottom line: The FBI raided Little St. James Island.  Whatever happened there, they know it.  (Epstein was dead three days later).

Of course, the FBI has covered up for Epstein’s network for a long time.  As Virginia Roberts Giuffre said back in February 2015, “Based on my knowledge of Epstein and his organisation, as well as discussions with the FBI, it is my belief that federal prosecutors likely possess videotapes and photographic images of me as an underage girl having sex with Epstein and some of his powerful friends,” she said. 

Only serious pressure from the public and Congress can make the FBI tell us what they found on Little St. James Island.  

P.S. The NYPD was there too, though. Maybe they’ll tell us.


Ben Sasse, R-NE, Questions Kathleen Sawyer Over Jeff Epstein’s Death and Believes it was to Silence Epstein. It Should be Nothing New to Nebraska.

Republican Senator Ben Sasse summed up the frustrations of Americans in pointed questioning of the new Federal Bureau of Prisons Director Kathleen Sawyer in the extremely suspicious death of Jeffrey Epstein.  Some key takeaways:

  • The FBI seems to have confiscated some documents that were in Jeffrey Epstein’s cell.  Could this be the reason he died?  Were these documents (if they existed) Epstein’s ultimate blackmail collection?
  • There are three investigations into Epstein now:  two based on his death in the prison + the original one that put him in the prison.
  • The FBI is investigating a “criminal enterprise” in association with Epstein’s death.  (Sawyer said this to Senator Lindsey Graham earlier in questioning).


Here’s the link to the video, WordPress won’t accept CSPAN code.

Here’s the transcript:

Sasse:  “Dr. Sawyer, can you think of any other incidents in the history of the BOP that have caused as much crisis for trust for institution as Epstein’s death?”

Sawyer:  “I can only speak for the.. since 1976, when I joined the Bureau, I don’t know prior to that, but I would probably say it’s gotten the most public attention.” 

Sasse:  “There are lots of taxpayers and citizens who’ve never thought about the BOP.    And you have lots of good, patriotic, hardworking folks there.  I get that.  But in terms of a crisis of public trust, in general but also in terms of your work force, this death happened in the middle of August, early August.  It’s Thanksgiving.  And you’re here to testify today and you say you’re not allowed to speak about this incident.  I think that’s crazy.  Can you distinguish among types of investigations at least for us.  Because I’m aware of at least 3 Epstein investigations.  You’ve got a whole bunch of women who were raped by this guy.  This is a sex trafficking ring in the United States.  This guy had evidence.  He’s got co-conspirators, and there are victims out there who want to know where the evidence has gone?  Can you tell us a little bit more about the different investigations?  I understand there’s at least one that you’re directed by Main Justice not to speak about.  But there are at least three investigations.  Can you unpack them please?”

Sawyer:  “There are two investigations that are ongoing.  One is the FBI’s investigation, and the other is the Inspector General’s investigation.”  

Sasse:  “Both inside BOP.  But there’s a third one, outside, which is why Epstein was in your institution to begin with.”

Sawyer:  “That sir is completely out of my…”

Sasse:  “I get that.  There’s a lot here were DOJ has failed.  There’s a lot where BOP has failed.  Let’s just be clear, so we have a level set for everybody in this room.  You’re here, in your job, because of this crisis.  Right?  You come here today, and you say you can’t testify about it, but the reason you’re Director now, is because the last guy got fired, right?”

Sawyer:  “Senator, I can’t tell you what I don’t know.  I have received no information from the FBI investigation yet, nor no information from the Inspector General.  Once those entities go into one of our facilities, we are forbidden from talking to anybody in the institution.  We can send in a team and look at wherever there might have been a security flaw or something, but we are not allowed to talk to anybody in our institutions about anything that happened over the Epstein…”

Sasse:  “With all due respect, you still have an obligation to speak to the girls who were raped by this guy today.  You may not have to speak about every particular of the guards that  were arrested last night, but the fact that there is an ongoing attempt by the United States government to find out if there’s still any evidence about the co-conspirators, you do have an obligation to speak to those girls who were raped today.  You may not speak about the specifics of the charges against those two guards this morning who were taken into custody, but more broadly you should be able to unpack, have we changed any processes about how cases like this are handled?  It’s been more than 90 days, and you said, I think your quote was, ‘we treat every inmate the same.’  We believe in America that every individual has equal dignity, but not every inmate has equal value for future criminal investigations.  Jeffrey Epstein was still to testify in a case.  Somebody who’s already been convicted, who may be on suicide watch, there are lots of good reasons to not want that guy to be able to kill himself.  This is different.  Because isn’t just about the individual inmate who might kill themselves, it’s about the fact that that bastard wasn’t able to testify against his other co-conspirators.  So it is wrong, as a management matter, for you to say we treat everybody the same.  We should be treating people who are yet to testify against other felons, against other rapists… they have a lot more priority for your institution, don’t they?”

Sawyer:  “Senator, all of our, pretty much all of our inmates that are in any of our facilities are pre-trail.  They are still yet to testify, to be involved, to share information on other cases.  I don’t know what evidence you’re asking of me.  If you’re saying was there any evidence in his room, in his possession at the time?   That was all confiscated by the FBI.”

Sasse:  “No, in his brain.  And in the cameras and in the tapes that the American public well understands, appear not to be urgent enough for the Department of Justice.”

Sawyer:  “No, it’s very urgent for the Department of Justice and it’s all been confiscated by the FBI and it’s all part of their investigation.  That’s why none of that is shared with the Director of the Bureau of Prisons or anyone in the Bureau until the investigations are completed.  Once those are completed, I’d be very happy to come up here and talk to anyone of you that want to hear everything we glean from those investigations.  But until I have that information, there’s nothing I can tell you.  If I don’t have the information, I cannot share anything with you.”  

That’s pretty much the end of the exchange between Sasse and Sawyer on Epstein.

The Jeff Epstein scandal has all the same elements that the Franklin, Nebraska scandal had.




Extremely suspicious deaths that look like they were to cover up evidence?   CHECK

In early July 1990, Caradori phoned Senator Schmit. "We've 
got them!" he exclaimed about some new evidence he had just 
developed. "There's no way they can get out of it now!" He 
and his son Andrew ("A. J.") would be flying to Chicago for 
the All-Star Game the weekend of July 7-8, he told Schmit. 
Caradori was going to do a little investigating on the side and 
would review the new evidence with the senator, upon his 
return the following Wednesday. 

On that Wednesday morning, July 11, 1990, Senator Schmit 
was in his office, talking with a journalist about the Franklin 
investigation. He related the numerous threats received by him- 
self and Caradori, and Caradori's evaluation of those threats. 
"It's unlikely that they would kill you or me, Loran, because 
that would be too obvious," Gary had said once, "But then 
again, you never know." 

At about 10:30 a.m., Senator Schmit took a phone call. He 
listened for a moment, appeared shaken, and said, "Oh, my 
God, no!" After asking a few questions, he hung up, tears in 
his eyes. "Gary's dead." 

It happened at 2:30 a.m. on July 11, when Gary and AJ. 
were flying back to Lincoln, Nebraska from Chicago. A farmer 
in Lee County, Illinois reported that he saw a flash of light, 
heard an explosion, and saw a plane plunge to the ground. The 
Caradoris were killed, the plane's wreckage scattered over 
three-quarters of a mile. The eyewitness account of a flash of 
light and an explosion was on the early edition of television 
news in Nebraska, but got pulled from subsequent reports, 
which said that the plane exploded on impact. 

Connections to the White House?  CHECK

At the center of the excitement was Larry King. Draped over him 
like a blanket throughout the evening was a heavyset woman, 
who 1 learned was Maureen Reagan, the president's daughter.
Last year she met V.P. George Bush and saw him again at 
one of the parties Larry gave while on a Washington, D.C. 
trip. At some of the parties there are just men (as was the 
case at the party George Bush attended)-older men and 
younger men in their early twenties. Nelly said she has seen 
sodomy committed at those parties.

Flabbergasted conservative Republican politicians from Nebraska?  CHECK

Loran Schmit, R NE

Loran Schmit, Nebraska State Senator, 1969 – 1993:  “It has shaken my faith in the institutions of government.  I used to be firm believer that the system would work, and that people who did things wrong would be punished.”

Media Coverup?  Like with ABC?  CHECK

The above video, Conspiracy of Silence, never aired, although it was meant for television.

Conspiracy of Silence, a documentary listed for viewing in TV Guide Magazine was to be aired on the Discovery Channel, on May 3 1994.  At the last minute before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired. Almost immediately, the rights to the documentary were purchased by unknown persons who ordered all copies destroyed.

Both the Epstein and Franklin, Nebraska scandals are a result of the same blackmail network.  This blackmail network controls the White House if possible.  END





Why Disney would bury the ABC News report on Jeff Epstein

On November 2, 2019, Project Veritas released a “hot mic” recording of ABC News anchor Amy Robach.  Robach complained that she had interviewed the former Virginia Roberts, (now Virginia Giuffre).  

“I’ve had the story for three years.  I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts.  We would not put it on the air.  First of all, I was told, ‘who’s Jeffrey Epstein?  No one knows who that is.  This is a stupid story.’  Then the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.  We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will that we, that also quashed the story.  And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated because of the planes. She told me everything.  She had pictures.  She had everything.  She was in hiding for 12 years.  We convinced her to come out.  We convinced her to talk to us.  It was unbelievable what we had.  Clinton, we had everything.  I tried for three years to get on to no avail, and now it’s all coming out.  And it’s like these new revelations, and I freaking had all of it.”  (it continues).

ABC News is owned by Walt Disney Company, a “diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate” that’s going to have about $70 Billion in revenue in fiscal year 2019.  

In addition to Disney’s association with the coverup of the interview with Virginia Giuffre, Disney is associated with the attempted coverup of another sexual assault victim- Cathy O’Brien, via their former employee Harvey Weinstein.

Disney purchased the independent film producer Miramax from Harvey and Bob Weinsten in June 30, 1993 for $60 Million and the assumption of some debt.  Harvey and Bob continued to operate Miramax for Disney until they left the company in 2005.

Cathy O’Brien and Mark Phillips published Trance: Formation of American in 1995.  This book exposed how the U.S. Government program Project Monarch had provided victims to U.S. Presidents Ford, Reagan, and Bush #1, along with many other notables such as Hillary Clinton, Robert Byrd, Dick Cheney and Canadian Prime Minister Phillip Trudeau.

In his role for Disney, Harvey Weinstein attempted to buy the rights for Cathy’s story.  Mark and Cathy agreed to meet with Weinstein, but were skeptical about his motives.  Mark asked Weinstein if the Clintons would be included in any movie he made, and Harvey replied no.  Mark and Cathy left and told Harvey “There is not enough money in the world to shut us up.” The photo is from Cathy’s blog.

Harvey is a close friend of Hillary Clinton, but there may have been another motive for Harvey to buy this story in his role for Disney.

From the time she was a child, “Fairy tale themes were used to confuse fantasy with reality, particularly Disney stories and the Wizard of Oz, which provided the base for future programming… I lost myself in the books my father suggested I read:  The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Island of the Blue Dolphins, Disney Classics, and Cinderella…. My television viewing was restricted and monitored in keeping with my father’s gained knowledge.  I was, however, permitted to watch the “best” of movies:  The Wizard of Oz, Disney Classics, Alice in Wonderland, and Cinderella – over and over again.”  (Trance, pages 84-85)

It’s unclear to me if Disney was deliberately created content to be used in the MK Ultra (Project Monarch) program.  The Wizard of Oz, for instance, was used by Dick Cheney to traumatize Cathy.  The Wizard of Oz was released in 1939, but this was in the 1980s while Cheney was Vice President.  Cheney would say things to Cathy like “time’s running out” and “I’ll get you my pretty” as he flipped over an hour glass like the witch did to Dorothy, which was a threat to kill her and/or her young daughter Kelly.  When you add in the facts that these children were subjected to hypnosis, LSD, and other forms of trauma, what jury could believe their recollections beyond a reasonable doubt?

Dick Cheney and Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the U.S. liaison to Osama bin Laden
Wizard of Oz Hourglass

Commands were given to the MK Ultra victims in coded language of popular movies to provide a level of plausible deniability if the program was ever exposed.  It’s easy for a defense attorney to create reasonable doubt in a jury’s mind by saying “you’re confused and saw that in a movie.”  When George H. W. Bush received Cathy’s 3 year-old daughter Kelly to rape, Cathy reported how George H. W. Bush closely mimicked “Mr. Rogers” in appearance, mannerisms, vocal inflection, and common phrases Mr. Rogers used in order to confuse the truth of anything she might say later. 

It seems unlikely that any programming for MK Ultra would have been conceived as early as 1939 before the MK Ultra program existed.  In any case, the use of Disney content as a tool to control the minds of sex slaves raped by U.S. Presidents is a bad look for Disney, and burying the story could have saved Disney some bad press, (but it turns that didn’t matter much, because the press just ignored Cathy and Mark’s book).

That’s not to say that Disney would not have included programming messages in their media at a later date than 1939 after the MK Ultra program began.  Disney does have a history with United States military propaganda.  On December 8, 1941, the day after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, 500 Army troops moved into Walt Disney studios in Burbank, California.  This was the only military occupation of a Hollywood studio in U.S. history.  Soon after, Disney began producing propaganda and military training films at the request of the U.S. Government.

Disney animated the motion picture “Prelude to War,” the U.S. government film shown to soldiers and later released to the public.  Frank Capra was the Director. This film was the U.S. message on why the Axis had to be defeated. This graphic is about Germany’s false propaganda, apparently.


Disney Animation “Prelude to War”

Later, in 1943, Disney released “Victory Through Air Power.”  This film was about how air power could be used to win WWII.  It influenced President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill.  

Disney was also involved in propaganda with other movies and they used their characters for war bonds, propaganda posters, etc.

Germany surrendered July 1945, the U.S. began bringing German “scientists” to America under the program Operation Overcast, which came to be known as Operation Paperclip.  The government reviewed files on the German scientists and would put a paperclip on the ones they thought would be useful.  Many of these scientists were rocket scientists like Werner Von Braun, who became the lead on America’s rocket program.  Von Braun’s team moved to Redstone Arsenal at Huntsville, Alabama, on April 1950 to work on rocket technology.

Walt Disney later collaborated with von Braun on the Man in Space episode of the series Disneyland, which aired March 9, 1955. 

Von Braun, Disney TV production, 1953:  “If we were to start today on an organized and well-supported space program, I believe a practical passenger rocket could be built and tested within ten years.”  By May 1961, Von Braun’s team had put an American (Alan Shepard) in space for the  first time in the Mercury-Redstone 3 rocket.

Alan Shepard

Rocket scientists were not the only ones brought to the United States under Paperclip.  German scientists had done “research” in the field of psychology using torture techniques at Camp King, Auschwitz, and Dachau.  The U.S. Government continued the German’s work with the same German scientists in projects Bluebird and Artichoke.  Allen Dulles began the MK Ultra program on April 13, 1953, shortly after he became CIA Director on February 26, 1953.   Dulles said in an April 10, 1953 interview that. This was a concerted effort by the government to perfect methods to control the human mind for several purposes including but not limited to interrogation, mass propaganda (psychological warfare), and an assassination program.  In fact, the term psychological warfare first entered English speech in 1941 with the translation of the German term Weltanschauungskrieg (world view warfare).   Allen Dulles was also very instrumental in Hitler’s rise to power in Germany by financing the Nazi coup in 1933. (1)

From Acid Dreams:

In a speech before the National Alumni Conference at Princeton University on April 10, 1953, newly appointed CIA director Allen Dulles lectured his audience on “how sinister the battle for men’s minds had become in Soviet hands.” The human mind, Dulles warned, was a “malleable tool,” and the Red Menace had secretly developed “brain perversion techniques.” Some of these methods were “so subtle and so abhorrent to our way of life that we have recoiled from facing up to them.”

Sadly, Cathy O’Brien reported that she was “programmed” at Redstone Arsenal and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.  (Trance, 112). They also programmed Cathy’s daughter Kelly at age 2, before her personality even had a chance to form.  In the early 1980s, NASA had some advanced technology not available elsewhere, such as virtual reality used to train astronauts.  NASA also had very large water tanks to teach astronauts how to use tools in space for any repairs they might need to perform. They used these tanks for the purpose of sensory deprivation of Cathy.  When it’s completely dark and quiet, and you’re floating in water that matches your body temperature, you lose touch with all external stimuli and your mind starts doing some weird things.  You can see that NASA experimented sensory deprivation in the Twilight Zone’s first episode “Where is Everybody” released October 2, 1959.  In this episode, the astronaut trainee hallucinates after being locked in a confined space for a period of time, but that’s nothing compared to the type of extreme sensory deprivation they used on Cathy, which was also coupled with LSD.

I look for more revelations to come about major media’s coverup of all things Epstein. Disney was perhaps involved in the MK Ultra program, which could explain their coverup of Robach’s interview with Virginia in 2016, but that doesn’t explain the rest of the media. I believe Epstein was associated with MK Ultra in some way.

Remember “Katie Johnson,” the woman who claimed to have been raped in two lawsuits in the spring of 2016 by Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein ? The media treated that like nuclear waste. Hillary Clinton’s emails were way more important to them than a Presidential candidate raping a 13 year-old girl. (It’s wasn’t important enough for Hillary to mention either, and what kind of politician doesn’t mention rape lawsuits against their opponent?!?!). Then again, Hillary and Donald are just two sides of the same coin, or as I refer to them, Mr. and Mrs. Puppet. If neither the Democrats or Republicans want something exposed, that seems to be something 100% of the mainstream media respects for some odd reason.

Sometime around 1996…

“Katie Johnson” was represented by Lisa Bloom. Katie withdrew her lawsuit after death threats against her. It just so happens that Lisa Bloom was receiving money for representing Harvey Weinstein.

P.S. I have seen unsourced rumors that ABC interviewed a second girl named as being raped by Trump and Epstein in Katie Johnson’s lawsuit, a girl named Maria, and that ABC refused to air that interview as well. These rapes occurred in the summer of 1994 during the Presidency of Bill Clinton.


(1). The Nazi Hydra In America: Suppressed History of a Century (2008), by Glen Yeadon with John Hawkins, Page 50:

“The radicalism cost Hitler and the Nazi Party dearly.  They lost 34 seats in the Reichstag and their source of funding from business leaders was severely cut.  Nevertheless, Hindenburg asked Hitler to form a government under two conditions.  Hitler refused the offer, resulting in Schleicher’s appointment as chancellor.  But business leaders soon opposed Schleicher, who restored the inviolability of union contracts and launched a large-scale public works policy to reduce unemployment.

 With the arrival of a new year, the Nazi Party’s future looked dim.  Hopes were dashed by the November election, and the party experienced severe financial difficulties.  However, business leaders turned against the new Schleicher government and arranged a meeting between Hitler and von Papen .  The objective of the meeting at the Cologne home of Kurt von Schroeder was to form a new government led by Hitler and von Papen.

Baron von Schroeder was a member of the most influential group in Germy the Herrenklub, as well as the Thule Society.  He later held several high positions in the Nazi government and directed ITT’s Germany subsidiaries.  Moreover, von Schroeder had extensive financial contacts in New York and London.  He was a co-director of the Thyssen found with Johann Groeninger.  Prescott Bush’s New York bank partner.  Schroeder also was vice president and director Prescott Bush’s Hamburg-America line.

The meeting took place in utmost secrecy on Jan. 4 1933 with two Americans present:   John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles.The Dulles brothers were there representing their client, Kuhn, Loeb & Co., which had extended large, short-term credits to Germany and needed assurance of repayment from Hitler before committing to support him.  Goebbels recorded the success of the meeting in his diary on Jan. 5, 1933:  “If this coup succeeds, we are not far from power… Our finances have suddenly improved.”

The FBI Needs to Investigate Ghislaine Maxwell’s ties to Children’s Charities and “Project Monarch”

Some pictures of Ghislaine Maxwell were recently released. These photos caused a stir because Ghislaine was with Caryn Zucker, wife of CNN’s Jeff Zucker, in several locations.  I previously reported on the photos of Caryn and Ghislaine at a book party in New York in 2008, which was not long after Epstein began his “sentence. ” This gathering was also attended by Donald Trump and Steve Mnuchin.  The mainstream media, as usual, failed to connect the dots on this.

Caryn and Ghislaine attended another event together in May 2014.  This was the “Fresh Air Fund” event honoring Mariah Carey for her charitable donations to “a retreat for inner city children to explore career development.” The River Fund, a parter of the Fresh Air Fund, enrolls children “aged six years old and up for visits with host families across 13 different states and Canada.” What bothers me is the use of the Monarch butterfly at this event, and of course, Ghilsaine Maxwell’s attendance.

Anyone who’s read Trance: Formation of America will instantly recognize that Project Monarch was a vile offshoot of the U.S. Government Program MK Ultra.  The program exploited children who were victims of incest and provided them to politicians. Mariah Carey “expressed her gratitude for the evening’s décor, which was an over-the-top butterfly theme in her honor, including light projections and thousands of different decorations of the colorful insects.”

Children+Butterflies+Epstein/Maxwell isn’t a good combination. Here’s another reference to butterflies from Cathy O’Brien’s book. Kelly, Cathy’s daughter, was raped by President George H. W. Bush at a young age, and later sent here.

Many people have wondered why the government would go to such lengths to protect Jeffrey Epstein.  As I’ve said before, Epstein’s blackmail network didn’t just spring to life when Epstein bought Little St. James Island.  Recently the government has declassified some documents on “The Finders,” as reported by Cathy Fox.   When you add in “The Franklin Coverup” and Bohemian Grove you start to see that this blackmail program goes back a long way and it has a great deal to do with the government’s MK Ultra program. 

Ghislaine herself made a most unsubtle reference to the U.S. Government when she allowed herself to be photographed reading the book “the secret lives and deaths of CIA operatives spies” at a restaurant shortly after Epstein’s mysterious death.  It’s just a matter of time before the government has to admit that Epstein was involved with the government.  The FBI raided Little St. James Island around this time, after reports of underground facilities emerged.

The sad thing about Ghislaine being involved with children’s charities is that the last thing I want is to have a chilling effect on charity or make a false claim about them.  I make no claims about Mariah Carey or the Funds. It is possible that good intentions have been mixed with bad. The FBI simply needs to investigate Ghislaine’s role here.  

P.S.  Although the symbol of the Monarch butterfly is used online to depict Project Monarch, I suspect there’s a better symbol:  the Monarch Crown.  MK Ultra was not confined to the  United States.  The U.S. is one member of the Five Eyes alliance of nations along with Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Great Britain.   The United States apologized to Canada for involving them in the program.  In her book, Cathy O’Brien reported that she was provided to Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.  Fiona Barnett, from Australia, had similar experiences to Cathy, including being raped by President Richard Nixon.  Add that to the involvement of Ghislaine and Prince Andrew and you’ll understand why my suspicions about “Project Monarch” are about more than butterflies.

Obstruction of Justice: Seth Rich, Mikhail Lesin, and the Comey Memos

It was as obvious as the hand in front of your face, or so I thought.  A comment the President had made, or a comment by James Comey pertaining to the President’s remarks, had been redacted.  The subject:  Vladimir Putin and murder.

But that’s not what the press reported.  CNN wrote “The 11 must-read moments from Comey’s private memos.”  The New York Times:  “6 Takeaways From the James Comey Memos.”  Neither contained any reference to the redaction, or even the nature of the subject.  The Washington Post at least touched on the subject in “What the Comey Memos Say.

I suppose that if you’re managing a huge corporate media outlet, deductive logic is a pretty thin basis to point out that the President of the United States was obstructing some type of investigation into the murders of Mikhail Lesin and/or Seth Rich. You might get sued.  Unlike Jeff Bezos, I’m not worth $110 Billion, so here goes.

Mikhail Lesin was brutally murdered in a Washington D.C. hotel room November 5, 2015, before he was scheduled to interview with the Justice Department, who wanted to know about the inner workings of Russia Today, which Lesin founded.  On no less than three occasions shortly after Lesin’s murder, and one after he was inaugurated, then-candidate Donald Trump played defense attorney for Putin when asked questions by reporters about Putin’s track record on murder, on December 12, 2015; December 20, 2015; January 26, 2016; and February 6, 2017.

It was Trump’s fourth defense of Putin, to Bill O’Reilly in the 2016 Super Bowl, that became a topic of conversation between Trump and Comey on February 8, 2017, in the White House, which Comey documented in a memo.    

Trump’s comment in the exchange with Bill O’Reilly that he wanted Comey to agree with:

“O’Reilly said: ‘He’s a killer, though. Putin’s a killer.’”

“’There are a lot of killers,’ Trump replied. ‘We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country’s so innocent?'”

And here is Comey’s account of the conversation which Comey and Trump had on Trump’s remarks to O’Reilly.

An entire sentence is redacted here. The subject matter throughout the entire paragraph, both before and after the sentence, are on the same topic. What reasons could there be for this redaction? 

This is a good link explaining redactions. It was made to explain the redactions made to the “Mueller Report.” There are four reasons for redactions listed in this article: 1. “Potential harm to an ongoing legal matter.” In other words, an investigation; 2. “The need to conceal investigative techniques.” This is commonly referred to as “sources and methods;” 3. “Personal privacy.” This appears to be a reason added by William Barr after he became Attorney General on February 14, 2019, and would not have been applied to the redaction of Comey’s memos before their publication on April 19, 2018; 4. “Grand jury testimony.”

I don’t see how the sentence I referenced could have been redacted for any reason other than an investigation, whether it was Grand Jury, FBI, CIA or whoever. If you can think of one, please put it in the comments section below.

Speaking of Grand Jury murder investigations, that’s another thing the media didn’t tell you about- other than Buzzfeed, which broke the story that the rest of the media ignored.  

“Now BuzzFeed News has learned that federal prosecutors called witnesses before a grand jury during 2016 to compel them to testify under penalty of perjury about Lesin’s death, and they amassed more than 150 pages of material from the proceedings. The use of a grand jury, not previously reported, was discovered in documents released after BuzzFeed News launched a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to compel the Justice Department, the FBI, and other agencies to turn over records related to the Lesin investigation. That lawsuit is ongoing.”

“Citing grand jury secrecy, two law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the case declined to say what witnesses were called or describe their testimony. They said that prosecutors used a sitting grand jury, rather than empanelling one specifically for the Lesin case, and that they were investigating the media baron’s death as a homicide.”

Notice the part in Buzzfeed’s article where they said the Grand Jury investigating Mikhail Lesin was a sitting one, not one empaneled for Lesin, and that this Grand Jury was doing work sometime in 2016. Buzzfeed didn’t give a more specific date range on this Grand Jury. There was another notable Grand Jury investigating a murder, probably around the same time, one that was empaneled specifically for a murder.

Aaron Rich, the brother of Seth Rich, filed suit against Ed Butowsky, Matthew Couch, and some media outlets on March 26, 2018. In his suit, Aaron reported that a Grand Jury had investigated his brother’s murder.

“He (Aaron Rich) has provided law enforcement officials with access to all of Seth’s property, followed up regularly with the officials regarding their investigation, and voluntarily testified under oath as a witness before a grand jury convened to investigate Seth’s murder. “

Comey reported that the President seemed upset that he did not agree with Trump’s assessment on the subject of murders and Putin.

He then said, ‘You think my answer was good, right?’ I said the answer was fine, except the part about killers, because we aren’t the kind of killers that Putin is. When I said this, the President paused noticeably. I don’t know what to make of it, but he clearly noticed I had directly criticized him.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on April 15, 2018, a few days before his memos were declassified and released to the public, Comey did not back off any implication he had made in his February 8, 2017 memo.

JAMES COMEY: Yeah. In fact, he was telling me it was a good answer and then said– gave me an opening by saying, ‘You think it was a great answer. You think it was a good answer.’ And then he was starting to move on. And I jumped in and I said, ‘Mr. President, the first part of the answer was fine, not the second part. We’re not the kind of killers that Putin is.'”

And when I said that, the weather changed in the room. And like a shadow crossed his face and his eyes got this strange, kinda hard look. And I thought in that moment, ‘I’ve just done something unusual maybe.’ And then (SNAP) it passed and the meeting was over. And, ‘Thanks for coming in,’ and– and Priebus walked me out. It was like–

If you’re writing a movie script, when the subject of murder comes up with one of the main characters and you write in “a shadow crossed his face and his eyes got this strange, kinda hard look,” there’s only one way to take that. James Comey is a former prosecutor and FBI Director and I think he knows exactly what he is implying. He did it twice.

This was the first time Comey pushed back against Trump. Comey had been concerned about having a conflict with the President in his previous meetings. He told Stephanopolous about his January 6, 2017 meeting with President-elect Trump in Trump Tower:

Well, I’m about to meet with a person who doesn’t know me, who’s just been elected president of the United States. By all accounts, and from my watching him during the– the campaign, could be volatile. And I’m about to talk to him about allegations that he was involved with prostitutes in Moscow and that the Russians taped it and have leverage over him.

And so I worried– I’m going to not only ruin any relationship I might have with the president, but more importantly, create a situation where the president and the– and the F.B.I. are at war even before he becomes president.

Again on January 27, 2017, Comey and Trump meet in the White House, and Comey is all about conflict avoidance once again. This section starts off with Comey’s reaction to Trump’s request for a “Loyalty Oath,” which he made twice to Comey.


JAMES COMEY: That’s a fair question. I think because I was caught totally by surprise. And again, I’m operating in an environment where I don’t want– I’m going to be director for another six years. This man’s the new president of the United States, I do not need a war with him.

Then Comey bent just a little bit on the “Loyalty Oath.”

JAMES COMEY: The second time was later in the conversation. He said, again, “I need loyalty.” And I said, “You will always get honesty from me.” And he paused and then he said, “Honest loyalty,” as if he was proposing some compromise or a deal. And I paused and said, “You’ll get that from me.” And, of course, in between those two– the loyalty sandwich, in between those two, I had– I had an opportunity to explain to him the F.B.I.’s role and how important it was for the F.B.I. to be independent and how I thought about it.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: But did you cross a line there– did you cross a line when you promised him honest loyalty? Did– would it be fair for him to think, “Wait, I have a deal here.”

JAMES COMEY: Yeah, I– I don’t think so. Given the context and the other things I’d said, I thought– and look, it was a compromise on my part to try and avoid a really awkward conversation, get out of an awkward conversation.

Trump’s answer to O’Reilly is where Comey stood his ground.

And so the president was, as I said when I described the dinner, just in a monologue talking about how that was a great answer, what was he supposed to do, it was a hard question, he gave his best answer. And just going on and on and on. Basically we’re all agreeing with this if we don’t speak.

And having seen it happen during the dinner I thought, “I can’t let that happen,” ’cause I don’t think it was a hard question…

JAMES COMEY: Yeah, I did. Although in that moment I was thinking, “I just succeeded,” although I hadn’t intended to, in ending any personal relationship between me and the president by th– by interrupting him and also criticizing him to his face. And I went back and told my staff that it happened, and then I thought– and told them, “That’s not a bad thing, because it will help us keep a distance that we need to keep from him.”

Let’s pause here for a moment. So far I’ve developed the mindset of both Comey and Trump in the conflict that they had over Trump’s comment to O’Reilly. I’ve shown that there were at least two murders that could involve Russia under a Grand Jury investigation prior to this conflict. I’ve shown that a comment on this subject was redacted for what seems could only be a reason related to an investigation.

Comey would be fired three months after this February 8, 2017 conflict with Donald Trump. The press has reported that Mueller investigated Obstruction of Justice issues with Trump related to firing Comey over the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election, the request for a “Loyalty Oath,” and pressure on Comey to look to the other way on an investigation of Mike Flynn. The Mueller Report was intelligence without conclusions, and was largely redacted. Could Obstruction of Justice of murder investigations be in the Mueller Report somewhere, redacted??

I’m going to “zoom out” with a timeline and show the bigger picture of the Obstruction- Trump’s Obstruction of murder investigations. I’ll start with Mikhail Lesin’s murder, and finish shortly after Mueller was appointed Special Counsel. This will necessarily be a long timeline, but I tried to be brief. I’ll use several indictments, the Mueller Report, and other sources. In places I edited the content for ease of reading. If you want to quote anything, please use the original sources provided.

Indeed, on April 19, 2017, Butowsky sent the following text message to Mr. Wheeler: “Do you have summary done yet?[ ] Just bullet pointed. Just want to make sure we get point to Sean easily.”

APRIL 19, 2017. The day before Ed Butowsky and Rod Wheeler met with Mr. Spicer, Mr. Wheeler met with Sarah Flores, the Director of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice (“DOJ”).

Tell her I said hello. Let her know why I was calling her, Seth Rich. Ask her to keep it quiet because we don’t know [ ] who the good or the bad people are anymore. But we know she’s one of the really good ones.”

Very shortly after the article was published, Mr. Wheeler called Butowsky and demanded an explanation for the false statements about him in Zimmerman’s article. Butowsky stated that the quotes were included because that is the way the President wanted the article, referring to President Donald Trump. A few days later, Butowsky wrote to Zimmerman, “I didn’t tell you yet but the federal government is involved at this moment, behind the scenes and believe your story.”

Also on May 16, 2017, Mr. Wheeler called Zimmerman and confronted her about the use of false statements. Zimmerman told Mr. Wheeler that she would have the statements removed from the article. However, they were not removed and, later that day, Zimmerman told Mr. Wheeler that she had been instructed by her bosses at Fox News to leave the false quotes in the story.

Following Mr. Wheeler’s disclosures and in advance of Mr. Wheeler’s planned appearance on the Sean Hannity Show, Zimmerman sent a text to Mr. Wheeler that stated, “Reread the story we sent to you last night [with the false quotes] and stick to that script.”

SEAN HANNITY: “Explosive developments in the mysterious murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich that could completely shatter the narrative that in fact Wikileaks was working with the Russians, or there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” Hannity said.  “Now if true, this could become one of the biggest scandals in American history, and could mean that Rich could have been murdered under very suspicious circumstances.  Now according to former homicide detective Rod Wheeler, who had been hired by the Rich family to investigate the killing, newly discovered evidence shows that the 27 year old-former DNC employee was, in fact, communicating with Wikileaks before he was gunned down in Washington, D.C.”

Some conclusions.  When I published The False Flag Murder of Seth Rich, I didn’t have the benefit of the indictments of the Russian hackers then, or Rod Wheeler’s lawsuit, or the Muller report, or a lot of other information.  The timeline with this new information shows that the narrative pushed by Wikileaks, the Russian SVR, and the Russian Embassy in London that Seth Rich was a “leaker” is disinformation.  Mueller’s report even said so in no uncertain terms.  “The statements about Rich implied falsely that he had been the source of the stolen DNC emails.” 

Russia hacked the DNC, compressed the data, transferred the data out of the DNC, uploaded it to a dropbox, and sent Wikileaks a link with instructions on how to download the data.  That’s what happened.  Let me briefly address some of the disinformation that’s out there.

The VIPS crowd (The Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity) said that the bandwidth on the internet wasn’t strong enough to transfer the amount of data that was transferred in a reasonable time.  Roger Stone pushed this alibi.  This theory completely ignores that the hackers could have compressed the data first before they transferred it, which the Indictments clearly state is exactly what happened.  These VIPS guys are former NSA employees and didn’t even think about that?  Come on.

Craig Murray claimed that he had knowledge that the DNC data was moved via a “leak” and not a “hack.”  The Indictments show otherwise.  That’s just all there is to it.  It’s possible that Russia made an effort to create a parallel chain of custody of the DNC data as an alibi or disinformation about how Wikileaks got the data.  In other words, somebody may have told Murray that there was a “leak,” or even handed Murray a thumb drive which he transferred himself, and he may or may not believe that what he’s saying is true, but that’s just not the way Wikileaks got the data initially.  

Changing the timestamps on some of the data to July 5, 2016, days before Seth Rich was murdered, was obviously an effort to falsely imply that Seth Rich was involved.  That’s a “smoking gun.”  It shows intent to frame Seth Rich for the DNC breach. It’s disappointing to read about it in Computer Weekly instead of an indictment.

And the reason why Russia would want Seth Rich dead is pretty obvious- they wanted to use his death against Hillary Clinton, because they favored Donald Trump.    Russia also favored Bernie Sanders over Hillary, and the Sander’s campaign was heavily involved in the DNC breach.  The Sanders team, Josh Uretsky especially, basically opened up the door for the Guccifer team.  Guccifer explained it here.

I want to address something right here to the anti-Hillary, anti-Clinton crowd.  You’re right about a lot of things.  Unlike the others who talk about Seth Rich, I don’t play politics.  I’ve looked at some of the allegations against the Clintons closely, and here’s what I think.

At a minimum- a minimum- there is more than enough evidence to lock Hillary and Bill Clinton up for their roles in Obstructing Justice and Obstructing  Governmental Operations in the murders of Vince Foster, and Donald Henry and Kevin Ives.  I do also, however, think that a large number of the deaths in the “Clinton body bags” lists rightfully belong in a “Bush body bags” list because people don’t understand the nature of the relationship between the Clintons and George H. W. Bush. But in any case, there’s plenty of evidence just on those three murders to lock the Clintons up for the rest of their lives. I’m talking good, documented evidence.

So understand this is not a defense of the Clintons.  The next time you people in the Trump or Clinton camps start screaming at each other about how corrupt the other side is, start listening to the other side and put it all together.  You’re both right.  When those two stand on a national stage and call each other puppets, how obvious does it have to be, people?

In my opinion, Russia capitalized on the American public’s understandable and justifiable cynicism directed at the Clintons, which made it more believable that that Hillary Clinton was involved in Seth Rich’s death.

Another thing, my analysis here doesn’t include the solid reporting by Luke Rosiak on the DCCC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and the Awans.  There’s something very rotten at the core of it.  I haven’t read your book yet, but I’ll bet $1 that some of Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 missing emails found their way onto this computer somehow.

And no, I don’t think it’s 100% “Russia, Russia, Russia” either.  Russia couldn’t pull all this off without help from the United States intelligence community, whether those people were “rogues” or “mercenaries” or whatever.  For instance, take the murder of Scott Christianson.  Now my qualifications are no greater than having watched a few dozen episodes of 48 Hours and The FBI Files, but when Scott Christianson writes about a $7 Billion tax bill that Robert Mercer is fighting, when Robert Mercer helped get Trump elected with assistance from his Cambridge Analytica, and when Robert Mercer just so happens to have a friend that used to run a CIA assassination program, that’s where I would start my investigation into the death of Scott Christianson.  Just sayin.’  In 2016, Prince was still looking for work in his specialty against ISIS, as he described in this interview with Breitbart, and in 2019 he is hoping to help out if a “dynamic event” were to happen in Venezuala. 

I refer you back to where Peter Smith said “mercenaries” hacked Hillary’s email.  Reuters had great reporting on former NSA employees (mercenaries) working for the United Arab Emirates– monitoring their “dissidents” and so forth using hacking techniques they learned at the NSA.   No it’s not just Russia.

North Korea.  Let’s talk about North Korea.  Does anyone take Trump’s version of America’s policy with North Korea at face value?  That we went from nuclear threats to a “love story” in this short of a period of time?  Along the way, North Korea just happened to fire a long-range missile that took over headlines critical of Trump’s firing of James Comey, the day before both Scott Christianson and Peter Smith died.  I don’t see how North Korea’s missile launch wasn’t coordinated as a distraction from events in the United States. 

So not only do I believe that Trump fired Comey to obstruct existing murder investigations, I think that people connected to Trump planned some “operations” that involved assassinations and media manipulation shortly after they had Comey out of the way, and I think there’s more nations involved than just Russia.

Footnotes below. END

(1). Trump to Joe Scarborough.

“Well, I mean, it’s also a person who kills journalists, political opponents, and invades countries. Obviously that would be a concern, would it not?” Scarborough asked.

“He’s running his country, and at least he’s a leader,” Trump replied. “Unlike what we have in this country.”

“But again: He kills journalists that don’t agree with him,” Scarborough said.

“I think our country does plenty of killing, also, Joe, so, you know,” Trump replied. “There’s a lot of stupidity going on in the world right now, Joe. A lot of killing going on. A lot of stupidity. And that’s the way it is. But you didn’t ask me [that] question, you asked me a different question. So that’s fine.”

(2) Trump to George Stephanopoulos

“But, in all fairness to Putin, you’re saying he killed people. I haven’t’ seen that. I don’t know that he has. Have you been able to prove that? Do you know the names of the reporters that he’s killed? Because I’ve been — you know, you’ve been hearing this, but I haven’t seen the name. Now, I think it would be despicable if that took place, but I haven’t’ seen any evidence that he killed anybody in terms of reporters.”

(3) Trump to Maria Bartiromo.

In an interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo, Trump discusses the 2006 murder of Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian security agent, and the 2016 findings of a British inquiry that Putin “probably approved” his poisoning.

“Have they found him guilty?” Trump said. “I don’t think they’ve found him guilty.”

“If he did it, fine. But I don’t know that he did it. You know, people are saying they think it was him, it might have been him, it could have been him. But Maria, in all fairness to Putin—I don’t know. You know, and I’m not saying this because he says, ‘Trump is brilliant and leading everybody’ —the fact is that, you know, he hasn’t been convicted of anything.

(4) James Comey Memo, January 6, 2017

What follows are notes I typed in the vehicle immediately upon exiting Trump Tower on 1/6/17…

After others left the room, we sat at the table. He began by telling me that i had had one heck of a year but I had conducted myself honorably and had a great reputation. He said I was repeatedly out in impossible positions. He said you saved her and then they hated you for what you did later, but what choice did you have? He said he thought very highly of me and looked forward to working with me, saying he hoped planned to stay on. I assured him I intended to stay.  He said good.

I said the Russians allegedly had tapes involving him and prostitutes at the Presidential Suite at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow from about 2013. He interjected, “there were no prostitutes; there were never prostitutes.” He then said something about him being the kind of guy who didn’t need to “go there” and laughed (which I understood to be communicating that he didn’t need to pay for sex). He said “2013” to himself, as if trying to remember that period of time, but didn’t add anything. He said he always assumed that hotel rooms he stayed in when he travels are wired in some way. I replied that I do as well. 

I said I wasn’t saying this was true, only that I wanted him to know both that it had been reported and that the reports were in many hands. I said media like CNN had them and were looking for a news hook. I said it was important that we not give them the excuse to write that the FBI has the material or REDACTED REDACTED and that we were keeping it very close-hold.  He said he couldn’t believe they hadn’t gone with it.  I said it was inflammatory stuff that they would get killed for reporting straight up from the source reports.

(5) James Comey Memo, January 28, 2017

I had dinner with President Trump in the Green Room at the White House last night at 6:30 pm…

He touched on my future at various points. The first time he asked so what do you want to do, explaining that lots of people wanted my job (“about 20 people”), that he thought very highly of me and had heard great things, that the people of the FBI really like me, but he would understand if wanted to walk away given all I had been through, although he thought that would be bad for me personally because it would look like i had done something wrong, that he of course can make a change at FBI if he wants, but he wants to know what I think.  There was no acknowledgement by him [or me) that we had already talked about this twice.

I responded by saying that he could fire me any time he wished, but that I wanted to stay and do a job I love and think I am doing well. I explained that i never expected to be back in government but had found this job hugely rewarding and wanted to serve out my term. I added that was “reliable” in one way but not in the way political people sometimes use the term. I explained that he could count on me to always tell him the truth. I said I don’t do sneaky things, I don’t leak, I don’t do weasel moves. But I was not on anybody’s side politically and could not be counted on in that traditional political sense, which I said i thought was in the president’s best interest. He asked whether the FBI leaks and I answered that of course in an organization of 36,000 we were going to have some of that, but I said I think the FBI leaks far less than people often say. I predicted he, like all Presidents, would discover the entire government leaks like crazy and explained that it often comes from the first or second hop out from those actually working on the sensitive thing. 

He replied that he needed loyalty and expected loyalty. I did not reply, or even nod or change my facial expression, which he noted because we came back to it later…

At about this point, he turned to what he called the “golden showers thing” and recounted much of what he had said previously on that topic. He repeated that it was a complete fabrication and “fake news.” I explained again why i had thought it important that he know about it. I also explained that one of the reasons we told him was that the media, CNN in particular, was telling us they were about to run with it. He said it bothered him if his wife thought there was even a one percent chance it was true in any respect…

He said he thought maybe he should ask me to investigate to the whole thing to prove it was a lie. I did not ask any questions. I replied that it was up to him. but i wouldn’t want to create a narrative that we were investigating him, because we are not and worried such a thing would be misconstrued. I also said that it is very difficult to disprove a lie. He said “maybe you’re right,” but several times asked me to think about it and said he would also think about it…

He then returned to loyalty, saying “I need loyalty.” I replied that he would always get honesty from me. He paused and said that’s what he wants, “honest loyalty.” I replied “you will get that from me.” (It is possible we understood that phrase differently, but I chose to understand it as consistent with what I had said throughout the conversation: I will serve the President with to the office, the country, and the truth. I decided it would not be productive to push the subject further.)

(6) Trump to Bill O’Reilly.

O’Reilly said: “He’s a killer, though. Putin’s a killer.”

“There are a lot of killers,” Trump replied. “We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country’s so innocent?”

(7) James Comey Memo February 8, 2017.

I went to the White House today for a 4 pm “meet and greet” with COS Reince Priebus.  As I waited in the West Wing lobby, Mike Flynn stopped by and sat down. We chatted for about five minutes about his new job, the challenges in building a staff, and working with folks who had never been in government before, how he maintains fitness, etc. There was no mention by either of us of REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED

COS Priebus’s assistant came and got me and took me to his office. He greeted me and we sat with his desk between us…

We touched on a variety of subjects, including “how the REDACTED ended up in the report.” I explained that the from all three agencies agreed it was relevant and that portions of the material were corroborated by other intelligence.

He then asked me if this was a private conversation. I replied that it was. He then said he wanted to ask me a question and I could decide whether it was appropriate to answer. He then asked. “Do you have a FISA order on Mike Flynn?”  I paused for a few seconds and then said that I would answer here, but that this illustrated the kind of question that had to be ask and answered through established channels. I said the answer REDACTED then explained that the normal channel was from DOJ leadership to the WH counsel about such things…

Reince then took me to the Oval Office to greet the President on my way out. The President was seated behind his desk, speaking to Sean Spicer. He introduced me to Mr. Spicer, who shook my hand and departed. Reince stayed, seated to my right as sat I in a chair facing the President.

The President brought up the “Golden Showers thing” and said it really bothered him if his wife had any doubt about it. He then explained, as he did at our dinner, that he hadn’t stayed overnight in Russia during the Miss Universe trip. Twice during this part of the conversation, Reince tried to interject a comment about the REDACTED and “why it was even in there,” but the President ignored him. The President said “the hookers thing” is nonsense but that Putin had told him “we have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world.” He did not say when Putin had told him this and I don’t recall REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED .

He then pivoted to the Russians wanting an apology from Bill O’Reilly. I said I had seen that and O’Reilly’s reply, which was to “call him in 2023.” The President then said that O’Reilly’s question about whether he respected Putin had been a hard one. REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED He said he does respect the leader of a major country and thought that was the best answer. He then said, “You think my answer was good, right?” I said the answer was fine, except the part about killers, because we aren’t the kind of killers that Putin is. When I said this, the President paused noticeably. I don’t know what to make of it, but he clearly noticed I had directly criticized him.

(8) James Comey Memo February 14, 2017.

I attended an Oval office homeland threat briefing for the President today.  

At the completion of the session, the President thanked everyone and said he wanted to speak with me alone. The AC lingered momentarily by my chair, but the President thanked him and said he wanted to meet with Jim. He repeated this at least one more time to usher people out. Everyone left except Jared Kushner, who stopped by my chair to shake hands and exchange pleasantries, including a few brief words about the challenges of the email investigation. The President joined in this brief exchange but then told Mr. Kushner that he wanted to meet with me. That left the two of us alone.

He began by saying he wanted to “talk about Mike Flynn.”  He then said that although “Flynn hadn’t done anything wrong” in his call with the Russians (a point he made at least two more times in the conversation because he misled the Vice President, whom he described as “a good guy.” He explained that he just couldn’t have Flynn misleading the Vice President and in any event, he had other concerns about Flynn, and had a great guy coming in, so he had to let Flynn go…

He then returned to the topic of Mike Flynn- saying that Flynn is a good guy, and has been through a lot. He misled the Vice President but he didn’t do anything wrong in the call. He said, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.” I replied by saying, “I agree he is a good guy,” but said no more.

(9) James Comey Memo March 01, 2017

Subject: Call from POTUS

Just called to check in and see how I’m doing. I said I’m doing great, have a lot going on. I added that Jeff Sessions has hit the ground running with a great speech on violent crime. He talked about Sessions a bit, then last night’s speech. Said he heard I’m doing great. Hopes I take good care of myself and come by to say hello when I’m at WH. That’s it.

(10) James Comey Memo March 30, 2017.

The President called me on my CMS phone at 8:13 am today (March 30. 2017). The call lasted 11 minutes (about 10 minutes when he was connected). We were connected by Royal Crown switchboard.

He began by joking that I was getting more publicity than he. I replied that i hate it. He then said he was trying to run the country and the cloud of this Russia business was making that difficult. He said he thinks he would have won the health care vote but for the cloud. He then went on at great length, explaining that he has nothing to do with Russia (has a letter from the largest law firm in DC saying he has gotten no income from Russia), was not involved with hookers in Russia (can you imagine me, hookers? I have a beautiful wife, and it has been very painful), is bringing a personal lawsuit against Christopher Steele, always advised people to assume they were being recorded in Russia, has accounts now from those who travelled with him to Miss Universe pageant that he didn’t do anything, etc.

He asked what he could do to lift the cloud. I explained that we were running it down as quickly as possible and that there would be great benefit, if we didn’t find anything, to our Good Housekeeping seal of approval, but we had to do our work. He agreed, but then returned to the problems this was causing him, went on at great length about how bad he was for Russia because of his commitment to more oil and more nukes(ours are 40 years old).

He said something about the hearing last week. I responded by telling him wasn’t there as a volunteer and be asked who was driving that, was it Nunes who wanted it? I said all the leadership wanted to know what was going on and mentioned that Grassley had even held up the DAG nominee to demand information. I said we had briefed the leadership on exactly what we were doing and who we were investigating.

I reminded that I had told him we weren’t investigating him and that Ii had told the Congressional leadership the same thing. He said it would be great if that could get out and several times asked me to find a way to get that out.

He talked about the guy he read about in the Washington Post today (NOTE: I think he meant Sergei Millian) and said he didn’t know him at all. He said that if there was “some satellite” (NOTE: I took this to mean some associate of his or his campaign) that did something, it would be good to find that out, but that he hadn’t done anything and hoped I would find a way to get out that we weren’t investigating him.

As the conversation ended, he said that he hadn’t brought up the McCabe thing because I had said he was an honorable guy (NOTE: I think he meant that he “hadn’t brought it up” in this conversation, but he could have meant smoothing else). I repeated that he was. He then said he hadn’t brought it up but that McAuliffe is close to the Clintons and had given him money but I had said he was an honorable guy. I repeated that he (Andy) was an honorable person. 

He finished by stressing that he was trying to make deals for the country, the cloud was hurting him (and mentioned going to G-7 with it hanging over him), and he hoped I could find a way to get out that he wasn’t being investigated.

I told him I would see what we could do and that we would do the work well and as quickly as we could.

10:05: I called the Acting Attorney General and relayed the substance of the above and said I was telling him so he could decide what guidance to give me, if any.

(11) James Comey Memo April 11, 2017

I returned the president’s call this morning at 8:26 am EDT. We spoke for about four minutes. He said he was following up to see if I did what he had asked last time — getting out that he personally is not under investigation. I replied that I had passed the request to the Acting AG and had not heard back from him. He spoke for a bit about why it was so important: He is trying to do work for the country, visit with foreign leaders, and any cloud, even a little cloud gets in the way of that. They keep bringing up the Russia thing as an excuse for losing the election. I explained that Dana Boente was now the acting AG on this after Jeff Sessions recused himself. He said maybe he would have his people reach out to Dana. I said that that was the way to handle it — he should have the White House Counsel call the Acting Attorney General and make the request. He said that was what he would do. 1

He then switched topics and be an to talk about and its leader, saying Obama didn’t like the guy. REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED He mentioned the Coptic church bombings and how horrible they were. He said that three Americans had been killed by an Egyptian soldier and the Egyptian leader had raised it with him. I interrupted to say that I thought he meant REDACTED REDACTED and an incident in Jordan. He agreed and said REDACTED REDACTED had told him he wanted to bring the soldier to justice quickly but that the FBI was in some way asking them to delay. He said REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED I replied that I would dig into it but that I did not believe it to be true that the FBI was delaying a Jordanian prosecution. In fact, we were working very closely with the American families and had told them that we wanted the Jordanians to bring justice and if they did not we would try to bring the killer to the United States. He asked me to follow up and make sure that we were working well with the Jordanians and helping them quickly bring the killer to justice. I told him I would. He then said that was doing a great job and wished me well. The call ended. 

1 I don’t know the President well enough to give a high-confidence read here from a phone call, but I perceived him to be slightly annoyed by my reply.

2 His use of these words did not fit with the flow of the call, which at that point had moved away from any request of me, but I have recorded it here as it happened.

3 I assumed when he said this that he was reaching back in his memory to our conversation about loyalty at our private dinner, which was sufficiently awkward to make it difficult for him to say I had promised to be loyal, which is where thought he was headed to the comment.

The Death of Robert Maxwell Appears to have been Ordered by George H. W. Bush

November 4, 1991.” 



“Subject:  Meeting with Ed Williamson – October Surprise”

“— ..In this regard, Ed mentioned only a cable from the Madrid Embassy mentioning that Bill Casey was in town, for purposes unknown.” 

November 5, 1991.  Robert Maxwell is found dead, floating in the sea off the Canary Islands of Spain.  

The “October Surprise,” as it came to be known in the press, was an operation by members of Ronald Reagan’s campaign to stop the release of U.S. hostages by Iran, which they feared would be released in October of 1980, giving President Carter a boost in public opinion before the 1980 Presidential election.   “In 1983, a congressional investigation into the theft of Carter’s debate briefing book during the 1980 presidential campaign revealed that the Reagan campaign had an elaborate 24-hour-a-day operation, overseen by Casey, to monitor Carter’s efforts to free the hostages.” 

Former President Jimmy Carter has said in interviews that he received reports after late summer 1980 that the Rea­gan campaign was dealing with the Iranians to delay the release of U. S. hostages.”

Jamshid Hashemi, who supported the 1979 Iranian Revolution, said he and his brother Cyrus acted as interpreters between Medhi and Hassan Karubi on the Iranian side and William Casey and two other men on the American side in meetings in Madrid July and August of 1980.   There they discussed exchanging arms for hostages after the Republicans came to power.  In a good example of how absurd the rules of classification on this subject are, you can read the above account in a document declassified by the CIA in 2012 of a transcript of a TV report by Ted Koppel in 1991 of this event that took place in 1980 here.

William Casey, Ronald Reagan’s campaign manager and future CIA Director, had an alibi that he was not at the meeting with the representatives of Ayatollah Kmohmeini.  Casey was lying.  As Robert Parry  explained it,

“Casey had skipped the key morning session on July 28, 1980. The significance of this confirmation of Casey’s trip to Madrid can hardly be overstated. The influential October Surprise debunking stories – ballyhooed on the covers of Newsweek and The New Republic – hinged on their joint misreading of some attendance records at a London historical conference which they claimed proved Casey was there and thus could not have traveled to Madrid.”

There is no shortage of reporting and speculation that Mossad killed Robert Maxwell because Maxwell threatened to go public with information damaging to Israel unless they fixed his financial problems.  While correct to an extent, this analysis does not take into account: how Maxwell’s knowledge could have damaged the Reagan/Bush Administration; the nature of the relationship between the intelligence communities of the United States and Israel was at the time; the strange coincidence between the timing of the November 4, 1991 “Beach memo” and Maxwell’s death; or the multitude of other people related to IranContra who met fates similar to Maxwell.  

Certainly Mossad was involved in Maxwell’s death, however.  It’s not a secret that Robert Maxwell worked for Israel, not after his funeral.  Gordon Thomas in Gideon’s Spies, The Secret History of the Mossad wrote: 

On November 10, 1991, Maxwell’s funeral took place on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, the resting place for the nation’s most revered heroes.  It had all the trappings of a state occasion, attended by thee country’s government and opposition leaders.  No fewer than six serving and former heads of the Israeli intelligence community listened as Prime Minister Shamir eulogized:  “He has done more for Israel than can today be said.” (1)

The Washington Post wrote “Israel Gives Maxwell Farewell Fit for a Hero.”  

On Maxwell’s role for Israel, Thomas wrote:  “Maxwell was Mossad’s high-level Mr. Fixit.  He opened the doors to the highest offices.   The power his newspapers meant that presidents and prime ministers were ready to receive him.” (2)

At the time of his death, Robert Maxwell had information that would have been very damaging to the United States and Israel.  Maxwell knew the financial side of America’s arms sales to Iran brokered through Israel.   Thomas wrote that on March 15, 1985, Maxwell set up a meeting with Nahum Admoni and Ari Ben-Manashe of the Mossad and introduced them to Viktor Chebrikov of the KGB.  At this meeting an agreement was reached to deposit the profits from arms sales to Iran into banks in the Soviet Union.  Robert Maxwell was paid a commission for arranging the meeting.  (3)

Previous to this meeting, in March of 1981, Rafael Eitan and Air Ben-Menashe moved to New York to facilitate the shipment of American arms and software to Iran via Israel.  They formed a company, Ora Limited, as a front company in this venture. (4)  In March of 1983, Eitan told Ben-Menashe to hire Nicholas Davies to be a representative of Ora Limited in London. (5)  Davies was employed by Maxwell as foreign editor of the Daily Mirror

By 1991, Maxwell was in serious debt.  He had overextended himself financially when he borrowed $3 billion in 1988 to buy Macmillan Publishing Group.  This acquisition was on the advice of Robert S. Pirie, President of Rothschild, Inc.   Maxwell sold what assets he could and stole £450 million from his employee’s pension fund, but it wasn’t enough.

As Thomas described, Maxwell considered Mossad to be the party guilty of the theft.  On September 30, 1991, Maxwell called Nahum Admoni and “said that unless Mossad arranged to immediately return all the stolen Mirror pension fund money, he could not be sure if he would be able to keep secret Admon’s meeting with Vladimir Kryuchkov, the former head of the KGB.” (6)   This appears to be a reference to the March 15, 1985 meeting that Maxwell brokered regarding the deposits of the proceeds of America’s sale of weapons to Iran into USSR banks. 

It all hit the fan when on October 21, 1991 when Seymour Hersh published his book  The Samson Option:  Israel’s Nuclear Option and America’s Foreign Policy.  Thomas wrote “News of the book had caught Mossad totally by surprise and copies were rushed to Tel Aviv.” (7)   This book mainly reported details of Israel’s nuclear program, but also contained Hersh’s assertion that Nicholas Davies was involved in the sales of arms from the United States to Israel to Iran. (8)  Nicholas Davies was foreign editor for Maxwell’s Daily Mirror.

Two days later, on October 23, 1991, members of Parliament called for an investigation “to establish the truth or otherwise of the allegations and, if they are well founded, the extent of foreign intelligence penetration of Mirror Group Newspapers.”  Maxwell promptly sued Hersh on October 25, 1991 over Hersh’s reporting.

After Maxwell’s September complaint to Admoni, Maxwell received a call from the Israeli Embassy in Madrid on October 29, 1991.  The caller informed  Maxwell that everything could be worked out and that he should fly to Gibraltar, board his yacht, travel to the Canary Islands by sea and wait for further instructions there. (9)  Maxwell did so and arrived at the Island of Tenerife on the port of Santa Cruz October 31, where he dined with an unknown person at a Hotel. (10)

Angel Delgado, the Island’s Governor, gave a press conference at midnight the day Maxwell was found in the sea.   

At a hastily-improvised midnight press conference at Reina Sofia airport in the south of Tenerife, the island’s Civil Governor, Angel Delgado, said Mr Maxwell’s motor yacht, the Lady Ghislaine, left Santa Cruz in the north of the island at 10pm on Monday and put into Puerto de los Cristianos at 9am yesterday.

But, he said, Mr Maxwell’s body was found by a fishing boat floating 19 to 20 miles from Gando on the other side of the neighbouring island of Gran Canaria – more than 100 miles from the obvious route between the points of departure and arrival. Asked to explain how the body could have got there, Mr Delgado replied: “That’s a good question.”

Gordon Thomas’ account, however, said that Maxwell ordered his captain to motor around the island for 36 hours, staying well offshore, in contrast to the 11 hours of travel that Angel Delgado reported. (11)  Thomas relayed Business Age magazine’s account of how Mossad boarded the boat and killed Maxwell. (12)

In addition to the damaging information that Maxwell knew of the banking deposits of the arm sales into the Soviet Union, it’s possible that Robert Maxwell also came to possess a copy of the cable from the “Madrid Embassy” or other related information proving that William Casey was in Madrid on July 1980, thus breaking Casey’s alibi in the arms-for-not-releasing-hostages deal.  The timing of Maxwell’s death with the Beach memo has not been vetted by journalists and authors.    

It is noteworthy that Ghislaine Maxwell, Robert’s daughter, was the first Maxwell family member to board the Lady Ghislaine after her father’s death.  She ordered the crew to destroy documents.

This would not be the first time that documents could have implicated Bush in knowledge and participation in arms-for-hostages deals.  Such information would be an issue in the assassination order of Amiram Nir and the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103.  But first, let’s take a look at the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in the Reagan/Bush administration.

As described by Gene Tatum, National Security Decision Directive #3 signed December 4, 1981 by Ronald Reagan put the Vice President (Bush) in charge of “crisis management.”  In a “crisis,” the Department of Defense, the CIA, Joint Chiefs of Staff and others would report to Bush.  This group which would report to Bush was called the Special Situation Group (SSG).  Subsequently, April 10, 1982, NSDD #30 added the Terrorist Incident Working Group (TWIG) to the SSG.  Tatum claims that Israel and Britain both had a member in this 6-person group and that any of the 6 could “call a mission,” where “mission” clearly means “assassinate” (although you won’t find that information in the NSDD #30). (13)  So, if you believe Tatum’s account, in someone like Maxwell’s case, whether “Bush did it” or “Mossad did it” isn’t much different, in that Bush could call a mission and Mossad could implement it, or vice versa.  

Amiram Nir, according to Tatum, was Israel’s representative on TWIG for some time. (13) This fits with Thomas’ account that Nir “became one of the most important members of Israel’s intelligence community in 1984, when Peres appointed him to the ultrasensitive post of his adviser on combating terrorism.” (14)  Arimam began working with Oliver North on the still ongoing sales of arms to Iran.  Nir flew with North from Tel Aviv to Tehran on May 25, 1986 with a shipment of TOW missiles and Hawk missile spare parts.  (15)  Iran rejected the shipment for an unexplained reason and used the shipment for a “massive propaganda coup.” (16)  (President Reagan later gave a televised speech in November 1986 denying that ransom was paid for hostages).  

In July 29, 1986, George Bush flew to Jerusalem to discuss the arms for hostages operation with Amiram Nir. (17) (18)  Craig Fuller, aide to Bush, took notes.  “These notes were deleted from the Boren Committee report of January 1987 for ‘diplomatic’ reasons, according to the State Department.” (19)

The Boren Committee nevertheless painted a clear picture of the nature of the arms for hostages program. (20)  Although they didn’t state it in these terms, the following is obvious.  Bush and his cronies got money.  Israel got what they wanted- a stronger Iran in the Iran/Iraq war.  The hostage takers got money.  Iran got arms.  The only ones who got screwed were the hostages, Iraq, and the U.S. taxpayers.  The only thing necessary to keep the program going was— hostages.   

Amiram Nir recorded the entire July 1986 conversation he had with Bush on the program. (17)  I speculate that Bush expressed a desire for continued hostage taking as a basis to keep the arms sales strong.   Nir resigned from Mossad in March 1987. (21)

Oliver North, John Poindexter and two others were indicted March 17, 1988 for conspiracy to defraud the United States.  They weren’t reimbursing the taxpayers for the arms they were selling. 

Amiram Nir was scheduled to testify at North’s trial.  Ari Ben-Menashe approached Nir in November of 1988 and questioned him about what his testimony would be.  Nir made it clear that his testimony would be damaging to both the United States and Israel. (22)

Soon after speaking to Ben-Menashe, Nir was in a mysterious plane crash in Mexico on November 30, 1988.  It is unclear whether he survived.  He traveled to Mexico with his companion Adriana Stanton.  They could have taken a direct flight to Mexico, but along the way went through, once again, Madrid, Spain, using false names. (23)  One can only assume this Nir went through Madrid to gather information on the meetings with Casey and the Iranians or other information damaging to the United States and/or Israel.  

Mueller Pan Am 103

On December 21, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 exploded in air after departing London over Lockerbie, Scotland.  The flight originated in Frankfurt, Germany.

On board the aircraft as it left London on that December night in 1988 were eight members of the U.S. intelligence community returning from duty in the Middle East.  Four of them were CIA field officers, led by Matthew Gannon.  Also on board were U.S. Army major Charles McKee and his small team of experts in hostage rescue.  They had been in the Middle East to explore the possibility of freeing the Western hostages still held in Beirut. (24)

Matthew Gannon and Charles McKee were also at the meeting between Bush and Amiram Nir on July 29, 1986. (17)

For insurance purposes, Pan Am hired a private investigator to prove the crash was a result of terrorism. (25)

Aviv had concluded that the attack had been planned an execute “by a rogue CIA group, based in Germany, who were providing protection to a drug operation which transported drugs from the Middle East to the U.S. via Frankfurt…

Aviv’s report claimed McKee had learned about the “CIA rogue team,” which had worked under the code name of COREA, and that its members also had close ties to another of those mysterious figures who had found his niche on the fringes of the intelligence world.  Monzer Al-Kassar had built a reputations an arms dealer in Europe, including supplying Colonel Oliver North with weapons for him to pass on to the Nicaraguan Contras in 1985-86.

The report further claimed McKee had discovered the scam while pursuing his own contacts in the Middle East underworld in an attempt to find a way to rescue the Beirut hostages.  Aviv stated in his report that “McKee planned to bring back to the U.S. proof of the rogue intelligence connections to Al-Kassar.”(26)

COREA used a person in the baggage handling area at Frankfurt to swap checked suitcases for ones containing drugs.  Gannon’s suitcase was never discovered, leading to the theory that his suitcase contained the bomb.  McKee’s suitcase was returned to Scottish investigators intact and was logged as “empty,” leading to the belief that he had documents on the arms-for-hostages scam which were confiscated.  (27)

That’s the death of three people, with potentially 5 separate sets of information damaging to the George Bush on the arms for hostages scam.

  1. Robert Maxwell, and his meeting brokering the deposits of arm sales to USSR in March 1985;
  2. Robert Maxwell, and whatever information he may have gathered around the time of his death in November 1991 when the White House reported a cable had been discovered stating that William Casey was in Madrid;
  3. Amiram Nir, and his recorded conversation with George Bush in July 1986 on the arms for hostages program;
  4. Amiram Nir, and whatever information he may have gained on his layover in Madrid on his way to Mexico in November 1988 before his plane crash;
  5. Charles McKee, and whatever information he may have gained from his “Middle East contacts” while trying to obtain a release of hostages in Beirut.

The object of this report is not to do a full accounting of all the questionable deaths related to the arms for hostages program, but to reframe the context of the death of Robert Maxwell with other similar and notable deaths in the arms for hostages program.  A full accounting would be quite lengthy.  According to the EIR investigative team, just by 1989 when they published this report:   “Over 20 persons with estab­lished or suspected connections to Iran-Contra operations have died over the past several years.”  Those are listed in the report.

Maxwell was Mossad’s high-level Mr. Fixit.He opened the doors to the highest offices. The power his newspapers meant that presidents and prime ministers were ready to receive him.  Because of who he was, they spoke to him as if he was a de facto statesman, never realizing where the information would end up. 

(3) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 176

Not until Admoni and Ben-Menashe entered Maxwell’s office suite in Mirror Newspapers headquarters in London’s High Holborn did their host announce there would be one other person present to share the bagels, lox, and coffee Maxwell had ordered must be available whenever he was in the building.

Like a conjurer producing a rabbit out of a hat, Maxwell introduced Viktor Chebrikov, vice chairman of the KGB, and one of the most powerful spymasters in the world.  With masterful understatement, Ben-Menashe would subsequently admit that “for a KGB leader to be in a British newspaper publisher’s office might seem a fanciful notion.  But at the time President Gorbachev was on very friendly terms with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, so it was acceptable for Chebrikov to be in Britain.”

More debatable is what the founder of Thatcherism and its free-trade principles would have made of the agenda for the meeting.  Sprawled in Maxwell’s hand-tooled leather armchairs, Admoni and Ben-Menashe led the discussion.  They wanted to know if “very substantial amounts” of currency were to be transferred to banks in the Soviet Union, could Chebrikov ensure the deposits would be safe?  They money was from ORA’s profits in the sale of U.S> arms to Iran.

Chebrikov asked how much money was involved.

Ben-Menashe replied, “Four hundred fifty million American dollars.  With similar amounts to follow.  A billion, maybe more.”

Chebrikov looked at Maxwell as if to ensure he had heard correctly.  Maxwell nodded enthusiastically, “This is perestroika!” He boomed.

To Ben-Menashe the sheer simplicity of the deal was an added attraction.  There would be no galaxy of middlemen chipping away their pieces of commission.  There would just be “Maxwell with his connections and Chebrikov, because of the power he wielded.  His involvement was a guarantee the Soviets would not steal the funds.  It was agreed the initial $450 million would be transferred fro Credit Suisse to the Bank of Budapest in Hungary.  That bank would disburse the money to other banks in the Soviet bloc.”

A flat fee of $8 million would be paid to Robert Maxwell for brokering the deal.

(4) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 169

 …With the full approval of the prime minister, Ben-Menashe was released from all other duties to work with Eitan.  The two men moved to New York in March 1981.  Their purpose, Ben-Menashe would recall, was straightforward:  “Our friends in Tehran were desperate to have sophisticated electronic equipment for their air force and air and ground defenses.  Israel, of course, wanted to help them as much as possible in their war against Iraq. 

Page 170  

As the volume of the New York operation increased, it became necessary to have a central holding company to process the billons of dollars involved in the purchasing and selling-on of arms.  The name chosen for the company was ORA, “light” in Hebrew.  

(5) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 170

In March 1983, Ben-Manashe was told by Rafi Eitan to recruit Nicholas Davies into ORA…

Ben-Menashe remembered:  “We agreed he would be our London conduit for arms, our contacts man for various Iranian and other deals.  His home address would be used on ORA stationery and during the day his direct off phone number— 822-3550— would be used by our Iranian contacts.”  

In return, Davies would receive fees commensurate with his newfound role as a key player in the arms-for-Iran operation.  In all, he would receive $1.5 million, deposited in bank accounts in Grand Cayman, Belgium, and Luxembourg.  

(6) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 207

On September 30, 1991, further evidence of Maxwell’s bizarre behavior became public when he telephoned Admoni.  This time there was no disguising the threat in Maxwell’s words.  His financial affairs had once more taken a turn for the worse, and he was being investigated in Parliament and the British media, so long held at bay by his posse of high-priced lawyers and their quiver of writs.   Maxwell then said that unless Mossad arranged to immediately return all the stolen Mirror pension fund money, he could not be sure if he would be able to keep secret Admon’s meeting with Vladimir Kryuchkov, the former head of the KGB.  Kruchkov was now in a Moscow prison awaiting trial for his role in an abortive coup to oust Mikhail Gorbachev.  A key element of the plot had been a meeting Kryuchkov had on Maxwells yacht in the Adriatic shortly before the coup was launched. 

(7) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 208

The matter for Mossad could only have become more urgent with the publication of a book by the veteran American investigative reporter Seymour M. Hersh, The Samson Option:  Israel, America and the Bomb, which dealt with Israel’s emergence as a nuclear power.  News of the book had caught Mossad totally by surprise and copies were rushed to Tel Aviv.  Well researched, it could nevertheless still have been effectively dealt with by saying nothing;  the painful lesson of the mistake confronting Ostrovsky’s publisher (also the publisher of this book) had been absorbed.  But there was one problem:  Hersh had identified Maxwell’s links to Mossad.

(8) The Samson Option, Seymour Hersh, Pages 309-310

Hounam and the editors at the Sunday Times did not know that as they worked, Mordecai Vanunu had been compromised to the Israelis by a Fleet Street colleague named Nicholas Davies, the foreign editor of the Daily Mirror, sister newspaper of the Sunday Mirror. Davies’s contact was Ari Ben-Menashe. He and Ben-Menashe had been partners in an international arms sales firm initially known as Ora Limited, which had operated out of Davies’s London home since 1983. Ora Limited, set up with the approval of the Israeli government, according to Ben-Menashe, was designed to get arms flowing into Iran—one of many such undercover operations around the world. “Davies was my main backup on all the Iran arms sales,” Ben-Menashe said…

…Nick had a friend in the Mossad,” Ben-Menashe recalled, and there was a casual meeting in London. Davies accepted an invitation to visit Israel; it was just a few more steps before he became an Israeli asset. As a Catholic from northern England, Ben-Menashe said, Davies was the perfect cutout, a well-dressed charmer with a strong taste for the good life.

Ben-Menashe’s files include hundreds of telexes and other documents indicating that Ora Limited was actively involved in arms trafficking with Iran at the highest levels. One 1987 cable, sent to Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, pro vided terms for the sale to Iran of four thousand TOW missiles at a cost of $13,800 each. The cable declared that a British citizen named Nicholas Davies, as a representative of Ora Limited, “will have the authority to sign contracts in Iran. . . .” An other series of documents revolved around the 1987 efforts of Ora Limited to set up a communications company in Tucson, Arizona, to be headed by Robert D. Watters, then a broadcast engineer at the University of Arizona’s television station. Watters, an expert on satellite voice communications, recalled many meetings with Ben-Menashe in Tucson and many telephone conversations with Davies in London. “I thought Nick was the money man,” Watters said. “He was there representing Ora.”

On October 29, 1991, Maxwell received a call from a katsa at the Israeli embassy in Madrid.  Maxwell was asked to come to Spain the next day, and, according to Ostrovsky, “his caller promised that things would be worked out so there was no need to panic.”  Maxwell was told to fly to Gibraltar and board his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine, and order the crew to set sail for the Canary Islands “and wait there for a message.” 

Robert Maxwell agreed to do as instructed.

(10) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 209.

On October 31, after Maxwell reached the port of Santa Cruz on the island the island of Tenerife, he dined alone in the Hotel Mency.  After dinner a man briefly joined him.  Who he was and what they spoke about remain part of the mystery of the last days of Robert Maxwell.   Shortly afterward, Maxwell returned to his yacht and ordered it back to sea. 

(11) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 209.

For the next thirty-six hours, the Lady Ghislaine sailed between the islands, keeping well clear of land, cruising at various speeds.  Maxwell had told the captain he was deciding where to go next.  The crew could not recall Maxwell showing such indecision.

(12) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 209.

Gideon’s Spies, 209.  On October 30, four Israelis arrived in the Moroccan port of Rabat.  They said they were tourists on a deep-sea fishing vacation and hired an oceangoing motor yacht.  They set off toward the Canary Islands.    

In what it claimed was a “world exclusive,” headlined “How and why Robert Maxwell was murdered,” Britain’s Business Age magazine subsequently claimed that a two-man hit team crossed in a dinghy during the night from a toro yacht that had shadowed the Lady Ghislaine.  Boarding the yacht, they found Maxwell on the afterdeck.  The men overpowered him before he could call for help.  Then, “one assassin injected a bubble of air into Maxwell’s neck via his jugular vein.  It took a few moments for Maxwell to die.”

General Colin Powell represented the Department of Defense; William Casey, the CIA; and Donald Gregg, the National Security Council. “FBI guys rotated in and out,” Tatum says. “It was like they couldn’t get anyone,” he concludes. Representing British Intelligence was Sir Colin Figure. Formerly head of MI6, Sir Colin transferred in 1986 to become “Security Coordinator”, one of the top slots at the Cabinet office under the premiership of Margaret Thatcher. He retired in 1989. Amiram Nir represented Israeli interests until his assassination by an “Archer” team led by Tatum-at the request of high-level Israeli individuals-in 1988. Any of these six could “call a mission”. In addition, George Bush could do likewise. Of significance, too, was the occasional representation on the TIWG of Lord Chalfont. The British lord was an adviser on “Mid-East affairs” between 1986 and 1990.

(14) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 319

His previous knowledge of intelligence sprang from his work as a reporter with Israeli television, and then from working for the country’s largest daily newspaper, Yediot Aharonot; it was owned by the Moses dynasty, into which he had married…  Nir’s marriage not only had made him the husband of one of the wealthiest women in Israel, but had also provided him with ready access to the higher echelons of the country’s political hierarchy.

Nevertheless, there was astonishment when he became one of the most important members of Israel’s intelligence community in 1984, when Peres appointed him to the ultrasensitive post of his adviser on combating terrorism.

(15) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 319

On May 25, 1986, posing as technicians employed by Aer Lingus, the Irish national airline, Air and North flew from Tel Aviv to Tehran on an Israeli aircraft painted with Are Lingus’s distinctive shamrock logo.  On board were ninety-seven TOW guided missiles and a pallet of Hawk missile spare parts.  Nor was traveling on a false U.S. passport.  It had been provided by North. 

(16) Gordon Thomas, Page 320

The first Mossad knew of the mission was when the aircraft entered Iranian airspace.  Nahum Admon’s reaction was described as “incandescent rage.”

Luckily the Iranians simply ordered the visitors out and used the mission to score a massive propaganda coup against the United States.  Reagan was furious.  In Tel Aviv, Admoni cursed Nir as “a cowboy.”

(17) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 323

The commander’s story revolved around his claim that Nir had met with George Bush, then vice president, on July 29, 1986, at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, to brief him about the ongoing sale of U.S. arms via Israel to Iran.  According to writer Joel Bainerman, “Nir was secretly taping the entire conversation.  And this provided him with evidence linking Bush to the arms-for-hostages deal.  At the meeting were McKee and Gannon, who would die in the Pan Am flight over Lockerbie.”  



LTC North sent a memorandum to Admiral Poindexter, also dated July 29, proposing that Poindexter get the President’s approval to ship the remaining Hawk parts to Iran. North also sent an electronic message to McFarlane emphasizing that Father Jenco’s release had been on outgrowth of McFarlane’s mission to Iran, rather than the result of any Syrian role. The document includes a notation by Admiral Poindexter, dated July 30, that the President had approved the shipment of the remaining Hawk parts to Iran. On the same day, Vice President Bush was given a briefing in Jerusalem by Mr. Nir. The Vice President attended the meeting at the suggestion of LTC North. According to a memorandum dated a week later by an official who was present at the briefing, Nir indicated he was briefing the Vice President at the request of Prime Minister Peres. He conceded the problems encountered in the program, but argued that the Iranians with whom they were dealing were ones who could “deliver.” He also discussed the problem of the sequence of release of additional hostages. According to the memo, the Vice President made no commitments and gave no direction to Nir.

(19)  Irangate, the secret government, and the LaRouche case by an EIR Investigative Team

Boyden Gray has been caught several times falsifying the public record about the involvement of Bush and of his office staff in Iran-Contra.  Gray was the principal public apologist for the suppression of Bush aide Craig Fuller’s notes on the meeting of Bush with Amiram Nir in Jerusalem on July 29, 1986.  These notes were deleted from the Boren Committee report of January 1987 for “diplomatic” reasons, according to the State Department.   December 1987 Gray admitted that Bush had “inadvertently” issued an “incomplete” chro­nology on the dealings of Bush and his office with the Contras.




Documents and testimony indicate that Adnan Khashoggi and other international arms dealers, including Manucher Ghorbanifar, were interested in bringing the U.S. into an arms relationship with Iran, and had discussed this at a series of meetings beginning in the summer of 1984 and continuing into early 1985. These discussions reportedly included the idea of an “arms for hostages” deal in part as a means of establishing each country’s bona fides. Khashoggi reportedly met with various leaders in the Middle East to discuss policy toward Iran during this same period.

MAY 1985

In May 1985, the CIA National Intelligence Officer for the Middle East prepared a five-page memo which went to the NSC and the State Department, arguing for a change in U.S. policy that would seek a more constructive relationship with Iranian leaders interested in improved ties with the West. The memo argued in part that the U.S. could permit allies to sell arms to Iran as one of the alternative means of establishing Western influence so as to offset growing Soviet inroads in Iran. Apparently using the arguments in this memo two members of the NSC staff then prepared a draft National Security Decision Directive (NSDD) which proposed a departure in U.S. policy toward Iran. Describing the Iranian political environment as increasingly unstable and threatened by Soviet, regional aims, the draft NSDD stated that the U.S. is compelled to undertake a range of short and long term initiatives to include the provision of selected military equipment to increase Western leverage with Iran and minimize Soviet influence.   

JUNE 14, 1985

On June 14, 1985, TWA Flight 847 was hijacked. According to testimony by White House Chief of Staff Donald Regan, McFarlane mentioned the possibility of requesting use of the Israeli channel to Iran in briefings to the President during the crisis. Regan said that this was his first awareness of any such contacts.

JULY 1985

In July 1985 Khashoggi sent McFarlane a lengthy paper he had written dealing with the political situation in Iran. McFarlane testified that he did not recall seeing these papers, but indicated the existence of prior “think pieces” Khashoggi had sent him on the Middle East. A staff member of the NSC testified that McFarlane gave the Khashoggi paper to another NSC staffer. Michael Ledeen, a professor at Georgetown University, and a part-time NSC consultant beginning in February 1985, appears to have played a key role in the initial contacts between the U.S. and Israel vis-a-vis Iran. According to Ledeen, while on a trip to Europe in April 1985, he spoke with a European intelligence official who had just returned from Iran. The official characterized the internal situation in Iran as more fluid than previously thought, and suggested it was time for the U.S. to take a new look at Iran. He said that the U.S. should discuss this with the Israelis, who the official believed were unusually well-informed about Iran.

JULY 3, 1985

According to testimony by McFarlane, on July 3, 1985, David Kimche, Director General of Israel’s Foreign Ministry and a former intelligence officer, contacted McFarlane and reported to him that Israel had succeeded in establishing a dialogue with Iran. Kimche stated that as a result of growing concerns with Soviet pressures, Iranian officials had asked Israel to determine whether the U.S. would be interested in opening up political talks with Iran. According to McFarlane, Kimche stated that the Iranians understood U.S. concerns regarding their legitimacy and therefore had proposed to use their influence with radical elements holding U.S. hostages in Lebanon. Although there was no specific Iranian request for arms, Kimche admitted to the possibility that the Iranians might raise the arms issue in the future.

AUGUST 8, 1985

On August 8, 1985 at a meeting of the National Security Planning Group in the White House residence, McFarlane, with Poindexter, briefed the President, the Vice President, Shultz, Weinberger, Regan, and Casey on the Kimche proposal to permit the sale of TOWs to Iran through Israel.

AUGUST 30, 1985

According to documents received by the Committee, the shipment of 508 TOWs left Israel on August 30, 1985, transited a third country and arrived in Iran on September 13. North later asserted to Meese that he was totally unaware of the TOW shipment at the time it occurred.

SEPTEMBER 15, 1985

On September 15, 1985, the Reverend Benjamin Weir was released from his captivity in Lebanon. According to testimony received by the Committee, there was reason to believe at the time that Ghorbanifar played a direct role in the event. In addition, Ledeen testified that it was clear to the Israelis that there was a causal relationship between the September arms shipment and Ghorbanifar’s role in it and the release of Weir. The view that the Iranians helped to secure Weir’s release appears to have been shared by McFarlane.

NOVEMBER 25, 1986

On November 25, McMahon learned that a CIA proprietary had flown the arms to Iran in support of an “NSC mission” without his knowledge or approval. According to McMahon, he instructed that no further CIA activity in support of the NSC operation was to be conducted without a Presidential Finding authorizing covert action. McMahon also directed that involved CIA officials brief the CIA General Counsel, Stanley Sporkin, on what had transpired.

NOVEMBER 26, 1986

This draft finding was prepared by Sporkin, approved by DCI Casey and delivered to Poindexter on November 26. The draft Finding authorized CIA to provide assistance to “private parties” seeking to free American hostages. It also contained language retroactively ratifying all previous activities undertaken by U.S. officials in pursuit of this effort and directed that the Congress not be informed until directed by the President

JANUARY 19, 1986. 

On January 18, 1986, he and two other CIA officials, accompanied by the CIA General Counsel, met with North and Poindexter at the White House where they were told that the President had signed a Finding the day before and that CIA would provide support for the activity, which was to be run out of the NSC. They were also told, according to testimony, that the Finding stipulated that Congress was not to be informed because of the sensitivity of the hostage situation. Documents received by the Committee indicate that on January 21, the CIA was asked to assist LTC North in preparing for a meeting in Europe with Ghorbanifar. They did so later that day.

No longer welcome in Washington and isolated in Tel Aviv, Amiram Nir resigned as the prime minister’s counterterrorism adviser in March 1987.

(22) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 320

But it was not avocados that brought Ari Ben-Menashe to Nir’s door on a rainy November night in 1988.  He wanted to know exactly what Nir intended to reveal when he was a major witness in Oliver North’s forthcoming trial over his role in the Iran-Contra scandal.  Nor made it lear his testimony would be highly embarrassing not only for the Reagan administration, but also to Israel.  He intended to show how easy it had been to sidestep all the usual checks and balances to run illegal operations that would also implicate a number of countries, including South Africa and Chile.  He added he was planning a book that he believed would make him the greatest whistle-blower in the history of the State of Israel.  Ari Ben-Menashe arranged to meet Nir after he had made another visit to Nucal in Mexico.

(23) Gideon’s Spies, Gordon Thomas, Page 321

On November 27, 1988, Nir and Stanton traveled together to Madrid under false names… Why they had chosen aliases for the flight tickets when they both traveled on their real passports– Israeli and Canadian– would never be explained.  Another mystery was why they took a flight first to Madrid when there were several scheduled direct ones to Mexico City.

Understandably desperate to show the destruction of Pan Am 103 had been an act of terrorism for which it could not be culpable, the airline’s insurers hired a New York firm of private investigators called Interfor.  The company had been founded in 1979 by an Israeli, Yuval Aviv, who had immigrated to the United States the previous year.  Aviv claimed to be a former desk officer with Mossad– a claim the service would deny.

Though the Lockerbie disaster investigation was still under the jurisdiction of a Scottish team, CIA agents were on the scene when McKee’s still closed and miraculously intact suitcase was located.  It was taken away from the scene for a short time by a man believed to be a CIA officer, though he would never be positively identified.  Later the suitcase was returned to the Scottish investigation team, who logged its contents under “empty.” 

No one queried what had happened to McKee’s belongings, let alone why he had been traveling with an empty suitcase.  But at the time, no on suspected that the CIA officer might have removed from the suitcase data that explained why Pan Am 103 had been destroyed.  Gannon’s luggage was never accounted for— giving rise to the belief that the actual bomb had been placed in his suitcase.  No satisfactory explanation would ever emerge as to how or why a CIA officer was carrying a bomb in his suitcase.  

The PBS investigative television program Frontline subsequently claimed to have solved the case of the disaster. Pan Am 103 had begun its journey in Frankfurt, where U.S.- bound passengers from the Middle East transferred on to Flight 103.  Among them were Gannon and his CIA team, who had traveled on Air Malta flight to make the connection.  Their baggage was similar to thousands of suitcases that passed through the hands of Frankfurt baggage handlers every day.  One of them was in the payoff terrorists.  Somewhere in the airport baggage bays the handler had concealed a suitcase already containing the bomb.  His instruction was to spot a matching suitcase coming off a connecting flight, and substitute his suitcase, and then let it continue on into the hold of Pan Am flight 103.

Partying on the Run, the Lifestyle of Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein

Recently discovered photos by Patrick McMullan Co. of Ghislaine Maxwell give another glimpse into the lifestyle of the other half of the Epstein Blackmail Network.

The event “Green Goes with Everything” was hosted by Caryn and Jeff Zucker.  Despite the attendance of Trump’s future Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, “Green Goes with Everything” refers to environmental practices, not money, with great tips like “Go to your bathroom and read the shampoo, makeup and moisturizer labels.  Ask yourself, ‘Do I really need scent in these products?’”

Jeffrey Epstein did not appear to be at the event, as he was not listed on the guest list. 

Green Guest list


Ghislaine Maxwell was not listed on the guest list either, however, and it’s only now that we know she was at this event 11 years ago.  Even though Epstein was largely able to come and go as he pleased under the terms of his sentence, it certainly would not have been a good idea for him to be photographed in public at a party just a few months after he began serving his time.   Come to think of it, I haven’t seen the Mnuchins in any of these pictures either.

Green, Trump, Melania, Caryn and Jeff Zucker 2008


Donald Trump was there though, along with his wife Melania, shown here with Jeff and Caryn Zucker.  Maybe this party wasn’t Epstein’s style anyway, as there don’t appear to be any scantily-clad models running around.  Just Sloan Barnett in front of her books pretty much.


Green, Sloan Barnett


Seriously, who knows what would bring Trump out on a night like this?

Maybe Ghislaine had more of a role in the Epstein Blackmail Network than we think.  Maybe she was in charge while Epstein was indisposed.  Maybe Trump and Mnuchin had to talk some business.

Epstein began his house arrest sentence July 1, 2008.   Sloan Barnett’s “Green Goes with Everything” event was held October 1, 2008.   

Mnuchin would later attend a party with Jeffrey Epstein hosted by David Koch in August of 2010.   Leon Black, Wilbur Ross, Richard Giuliani, and Julia Koch attended this party as well.  William Ross later became Trump’s Secretary of Commerce.  Rudy Giuliani became Trump’s “TV lawyer” and policymaker on Ukraine.  

At the 2010 Koch party, Ghislaine was the missing half of the Epstein/Maxwell duo.  Attorney Bradley Edwards was pursuing Ghislaine to give a deposition on behalf of victim’s of Epstein which he was representing in a lawsuit.   Edwards had served Ghislaine a subpoena “on Sept. 22, 2009 at 6:45 p.m. as she was leaving the Clinton Global Initiatives Conference.”   She managed to put it off until “On June 29, 2010, one day before (victim’s lawyer Brad) Edwards was due to fly to New York to take Maxwell’s deposition, her attorney informed Edwards that Maxwell’s mother was deathly ill and Maxwell was consequently flying to England with no intention of returning to the United States.” 

Ghislaine managed to attend the wedding of Chelsea Clinton on July 31, 2010 nevertheless.  She never gave a deposition.  



Trump didn’t give a deposition either, because Edwards said Trump was extremely cooperative in providing evidence to him outside of court.  Ghislaine and Trump go back a ways themselves- at least to the 50th Anniversary of Ford Modelling Agency Party on October 29, 1997 at SoHo Guggenheim in New York City.  The caption says “Heiress Ghislaine Maxwell tries to get Donald Trump to focus on the conversation as models saunter by.”  Seems more their style.



The Bohemian Grove was a Blackmail Operation




Bohemian Grove appears to be a location where world leaders have met and have been filmed for blackmail purposes.

Due to the subject matter, which is extremely distasteful, this article will have the tone and energy of a high school book report on a book that the student did not want to read but made the effort to make a B anyway.

Like most any modern criminal enterprise, there’s a public face and a hidden one.  I certainly do not contend that everyone who has ever attended Bohemian Grove is guilty of sordid crime.

There’s going to be a lot of information in here.  I tend to wander off on tangents a bit so bear with me, but I tried to organize it in outline form as opposed to other articles I’ve written chronologically.   I’ll save the Blackmail Rooms of Bohemian Grove for the end so that if you read the information along the way, you’ll be more inclined to believe it.

Be advised that some of the material could be disturbing if you’re a victim of sexual assault.





Bohemia is situated in modern Czechoslovakia today.  “Bohemian” has come to mean “free of inhibition, enlightened, or anti-establishment” and is often associated with the Arts.   According to Peter Martin Phillips, “the origin of the term bohemian comes from the French artistic movement of the 1830’s.”  Phillips reported that the Bohemian Club was “Organized in 1872..  as a gathering place for newspaper reporters and men who like arts and literature.”  He then listed the applicable text in their articles of organization.


Article I – This organization shall be known as the Bohemian Club. It is instituted for the association of gentlemen connected professionally with literature, art, music, the drama, and also those who, by reason of their love or appreciation of these objects, may be deemed eligible.

(Bohemian Club Constitution and By-Laws 1887 CA State Library)



Wikipedia says “Moloch is the biblical name of a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice, through fire or war.”

Pictured above, from left to right, are an older picture of the Owl before lichens grew on it, then one with lichens, and one where a ceremony is being performed.

There is some debate over whether the Grovers called this monument the “Owl of Bohemia” or “Moloch,” which this blog did a good job of explaining.  You can dig through all the history on that if you want.  This owl monument is obviously meant to be a backdrop for human sacrifice rituals, which will be discussed in greater detail in the “Cremation of Care” section.

Martin’s research showed that the Owl was poured in concrete in 1929.  The lake it sits in front of was also manmade in the 1920s.

Page 33:  The Lake, as it is called on the Grove map, is about 100 feet wide and 400 feet long. The Lake was originally built in the mid-1920s, and relined with earth and concrete in 1981 (Hood and Baxter 1987). The Lake could be a Disney creation as it has an artificial waterfall tumbling into it, and water lilies kept in natural-looking patterns by water jets embedded in the lake bottom.

Page 44:  A forty foot concrete owl stands at the head of the lake in the Grove. This owl shrine was built in 1929 to serve as a ceremonial site for traditional Bohemian rituals and is used yearly for the Cremation of Care Ceremony.



Weaving Spiders Come Not Here Main Entrance 624 Taylor Bohemian Grove

According to Wikipedia, the above picture shows:  “The club’s mascot owl cast in masonry perched over the main entrance at 624 Taylor.”  Notice the letters “B” and “C” prominently flanking the Owl.  This seems to be a reference to the time “Before Christ.”

Martin says:

Page 43:  The Bohemian Club’s motto, “Weaving spiders, come not here”, first appeared on a Club announcement in 1875. This was taken from Shakespeare’s “A midsummer Night’s Dream”, and was intended to speak to the inappropriateness of conducting or soliciting business at Club functions.

Weiss said, after visiting the Grove in 1989:  “There are few rules, the most famous one being “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here” — in other words, don’t do business in the Grove. The rule is widely ignored.  Another, unwritten rule is that everyone drink — and that everyone drink all the time.  This rule is strictly adhered to.”

Cathy O’Brien wrote in TRANCE FORMATION OF AMERICA that business was allowed to be discussed in one room:  The Underground.  This will be discussed later.

The phrase “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here” can plainly be heard in the Cremation of Care Ceremony which Alex Jones filmed in 2000.  Jones’ report will be discussed more as well.



The above pictures are of a statue and plaque on the Vltava River marking the spot where John of Nepomuk was drowned.

From Martin:

(Pages 50-51):  The Club’s patron saint is John of Nepomuk, who was originally adopted in 1882.  The legend is that St. John suffered death by a Bohemian monarch in the late 14th century rather then disclose the confessional secrets of the queen. A large wood carving of St. John in cleric robes with his index finger over his lips stands at the shore of the lake in the Grove. St. John as the Club patron was started as a reminder of respect for others’ privacy in 1882, but today has emerged as the collective symbol of the privacy of Bohemia.

From Wikipedia:

Saint John of Nepomuk (c. 1345 – 20 March 1393) is the saint of Bohemia (Czech Republic) who was drowned in the Vltava river at the behest of Wenceslaus, King of the Romans and King of Bohemia. Later accounts state that he was the confessor of the queen of Bohemia and refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. On the basis of this account, John of Nepomuk is considered the first martyr of the Seal of the Confessional,

The Seal of the Confessional is “the absolute duty of priests not to disclose anything that they learn from penitents during the course of the Sacrament of Penance (confession).”

Note that despite the Pagan/Occult Rituals which characterize the Bohemian Grove and the”BC” inscription at the entrance, there is one Church value that the club adheres to:  Secrecy.   A summary of the Club’s rituals, mascots, and symbols shows the true nature of the club.  Members should feel free to do as they please without care and it will remain secret.





From Martin:

Page 22:  Sonoma County was heavily logged during the latter part of the 19th century. Railroads spurs were built into vast areas along the Russian River where clear cutting was a common practice. Bohemians would ride the trains from Marin County to the remaining forested sites for overnight camping. A particularly beautiful grove of old growth redwoods was preserved by Sonoma Lumber Company in the hopes of greater profits at a later date. It was this 160 acre property surrounded by clear cut lands that the Bohemian Club arranged to purchase in 1899. The Club made twenty-eight purchases of land over a 67 year period and now owns 2,712 acres that surround the original old growth redwood grove (Hood, Baxter 1987).

Initially the Bohemian Grove was kept in a mostly natural state, with members erecting tents along the valley floor for long weekends. By 1914 members were extending weekend campouts to three weekends over two weeks. Ceremonial traditions and Jinks in the Grove became a regular part of Bohemian life.


From Philip Weiss, Masters of the Universe Go to Camp:  Inside the Bohemian Grove:

Every summer for more than a century, the all-male Bohemian Club of San Francisco has led a retreat into a redwood forest 70 miles north of the city, four and a quarter square miles of rugged, majestic terrain that members consider sacred. The religion they consecrate is right-wing, laissez-faire and quintessentially western, with some Druid tree worship thrown in for fun.




From Martin:

The development of permanent camp buildings lead to the consolidation of camps. In 1929 there were 169 camps in the Grove and by 1994 there were 124. Camps can be born and die with their members, or merge into other camps. Between the years 1972 and 1986 eleven smaller camps terminated, eight new camps were formed and two merged (Baxter, Oliver 1987).


For brevity’s sake I’ll only list a few camps:  Camp Hillbillies and Camp Mandalay.


Hillbillies camp sign


Although women are supposedly forbidden at the Grove, here we seen on the entrance to the Hillbillies camp a naked woman teetering on the edge of a chalice with an owl looking on.  A chalice is used in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, although I don’t think the male figure has anything to do with God.  If you know more about this symbolism, please include it in the comment section.

When Alex Jones and his crew were challenged by security when they were filming at Bohemian Grove in 2000:  “We just told them we were with the Hillbillies, that’s where the Bush’s stay.  You know, because we’ve got Texas accents.”



Camp Mandalay Bohemian Grove

Camp Mandalay members list Bohemian Grove

The above pictures are from Archives at Yale University, at Camp Mandalay July 2001.  Henry Kissinger and George Schultz are in the photo.  Below is a photo of Camp Mandalay, which included President Gerald Ford in 1977.

Camp Mandalay Bohemian Grove 1977


Laton McCartney in Friends in High Places, The Bechtel Story The Most Secret Corporation and how it Engineered the World, has a section on Steve Bechtel’s visit Camp Mandalay at Bohemian Grove in 1982, and noted that George Schultz was “former Bechtel Group president.”  

Yeadon and Hawkins note in The Nazi Hydra in America that:  “Both Bechtel and Halliburton are closely linked to the Republican Party and the Bush family.  Both companies have been awarded huge contracts in Iraq by George W. Bush.” (Page 588).



From Martin:

Page 15:  The Spring Jinks is an annual four-day event (in June) that serves as a warm-up for the midsummer encampment (in July). The difference is that Club members can invite California guests for the Spring Jinks, but must have special Grove Committee approval for a California guest at the summer encampment. The Spring Jinks serves as a weekend when members can invite their California business associates, sons or personal friends and let them have an opportunity to experience the Grove.

Page 21:  Club activities included poetry recitations, performances by musicians, lectures and frequent plays. Regular entertainment became know as a “Jinks” after a Scottish drinking game (Van der Zee 1974 p.19), as alcohol consumption was a major part of Club events. 

Page 59:  The second Saturday is the Low Jinks which has become by tradition a rollicking farce designed to create a good laugh. The 1993 Low Jinks was entitled “Sherwood Estates”, and was described in the program of events as a recently discovered episode of Robin Hood and His Merry Men.

Page 60:  The last Friday night of the encampment is the annual Grove play. These plays, known as the Midsummer High Jinks before 1912, are written each year exclusively for this one-time presentation. Grove plays are theatrical extravaganzas that cost tens of thousand of dollars to produce and can involve up to two hundred actors.  (61) … Grove plays tend to present moralistic macro- perspectives on major socio-historical transformations.




Porter Garnett, in The Bohemian Jinks:  A Treatise, 1908 wrote:

Page 191:  With the midsummer jinks of 1881, James F. Bowman, Sire, the ceremony of the Cremation of Care was conducted for the first time.

Page 27:  Begins here the Cremation of Care.  From among the trees behind which the Corpse of Care has been carried the lugubrious strains of Chopin’s Marche Funubre can be heard.

In 1902, the Owl was an actor in a cast as listed by some type of document that Garnett listed.  (Page 47).

The below picture of the “Temple Bar” at Bohemian Grove from Garnett’s book, page 40, looks like it has a headless torso on the left.  I don’t know.  If you know how to decode this symbolism please do so in the comment section.

Temple Bar Bohemian Grove



Martin’s research on when the Cremation of Care ceremony began is a bit different from Garnett, although I think Martin is referencing the point where the Ceremony was moved to a separate date and location than the rest of the low jinks plays.  From Martin:

Pages 44-45:  1910 marked the first ceremonial burial of the cares of the world during the midsummer encampment and by 1913 Care was being cremated during the first weekend of the Grove (Annals, 1972) The Cremation of Care Ceremony was produced as a play in 1920, wherein a High Priest standing before a huge pre-historic alter, is confronted by Dull Care wrapped in the chains but not dead because Bacchus, the only warrior Care fears, is truly dead (18th Amendment was passed in 1919). Good Fellowship arrives, but lacks the sword necessary to kill Dull Care, and can only imprison him and Care still sings out through the prison window. At last Bohemia’s Spirit emerges and proclaims:

Down with all fears! And up with your cheers,
for his (Cares) mocking is turning to sobbing and tears.

But Care responds:

‘Call Bacchus from the grave… long as he is dead. I sneer at Great Bohemia! Aha! Aha!’ Good Fellowship then takes the torch from the priest at the alter and burns Care in his prison, thereby purging the ‘demon Care from the sacred Grove.’ (Thompson Archives, 1920)

This ceremony has been rewritten on several occasions but the theme is still the same. The addition of the owl statue in 1920 allowed for the voice of the owl to be incorporated into the ceremony.

And note that the reference to the owl statue in 1920 is not the same as Martin’s earlier reference of pouring the statue in concrete in 1929.  As the Bohemians were also building the lake in the 1920s, they probably had two owl statues, and moved to the second location after the present-day Owl and lake were completed.  A timeline this old is a bit vague.

There was a time when they conducted the Ceremony prior to 1920 without the statue of the owl, which brings us to these photos from 1906-1909.

Bohemian Grove sacrifice 1909Bohemian Grove Sacrifice 2

According to this website, the above photos were released by the University of California- Berkeley around 2004.   Although there’s no definitive source, “many believe” (I hate that phrase) that the human sacrifice rituals at Bohemian Grove in these early days involved real humans.   These photographs are the best evidence of it.  I think it’s safe to say that the black male in the top photograph is not there willingly.  And the bottom photo is a very realistic-looking mannequin if it is one.  There appears to be substantial weight on that rope, with what appears to be a blanket and gurney nearby.  I’ll point out here that while the KKK was Southern in origin, founded shortly after the Civil War ended in 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee, by the 1920s it had moved into California.   Here are some references to the KKK in Sacramento and Inglewood.  

Alex Jones famously filmed the Cremation of Care Ceremony in 2000.  Thanks to Jones’ absurd recent claims about Sandy Hook and “crisis actors,” one has to qualify their remarks before discussing anything related to Alex Jones.   I think Jones is an “actor” himself who says ridiculous, inflammatory things at times to generate attention.  I wish anyone suing him the best of luck and believe that you are entitled to compensation.

The qualification now out of the way, I think Jones’ Bohemian Grove video was Alex at his best.  He said some important things that I completely agree with that go to the theme of this article, and as Jones said them first, he deserves proper credit.


Alex Jones:

22:15:  This is probably just one more steering committee where they bring in a lot of underlings and high-level corporate chieftains who really aren’t the upper-level top echelon, make them feel important, and implement some type of strategy.  To me Bohemian Grove is probably a way to compromise people.  You want to be in the New World Order club- it’s like a big kid fraternity.  Just like at fraternities you have to do weird things, here you probably have to do weird things.

Let me say it another way.  The art of compromising top government officials and VIPs is not to compromise them after they are already established.  The strategy is to compromise them early in their careers and then promote them to higher positions later.  For example, Gerald Ford raped Cathy O’Brien in the mid 1960s in the Michigan State Capital.  Later Nixon, who raped Fiona Barnett, chose Gerald Ford  to succeed Spirow Agnew after he resigned as Vice President in 1973.

Back to Jones’ video.  Take a look at these screenshots of Jones’ video below.


Alex Jones Bohemian Grove 2Alex Jones Bohemian Grove 1

Alex Jones:

57:00   I wanted to draw your attention to the program that was given out to the spectators or the viewers… Now you’re looking at a little demon called PJ that was on the front of the actual program..He’s got a little broom and a dust pan and he’s sweeping something up.

57:30  Even more shocking is the figure of a human body burning in the flames.In fact I’ve shown it to people that are experts in anatomy, to actual doctors, and they say that the anatomical size is that of a baby or small child. 

As Alex said, that’s from a brochure they hand out at this place.  It’s more evidence of human sacrifice.




According to this blog:  “The Bohemian Grove is a refuge, perhaps the last, of establishment Republicanism. Every Republican President since Calvin Coolidge has spent time here.”  

My research isn’t that thorough.  I can start at William Taft however.  And there are a few Democrats.



William Taft was the 27th President from 1909-1913.  He’s listed on OBSCURANTIST as a member of Bohemian Grove.  The webpage says Taft is also:

Son of the co-founder of the Yale Skull & Bones Society, himself Skull & Bones 1878, Cincinnati Law School 1880, member Ohio Superior Court 1890-1892, solicitor general of the United States 1892-1900, Governor of the Philippines 1901-1904, Secretary of War 1904-1908, President of the United States 1909-1913, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court 1921-1930, member of the Pilgrims Society.



Herbert Hoover was the 31st President from 1929-1933.  From Philip Weiss:  “In 1953, when he was vice president, Nixon led a ceremony honoring Herbert Hoover’s 40th year as a Bohemian. It took place at the Waldorf-Astoria, in a room piled with redwood bark and branches shipped to Manhattan from the Grove.”   

There is some correspondence between Allen Dulles and Herbert Hoover in July, 1954, over what appears to be a recommendation of Hoover for Allen Dulles, then Director of Central Intelligence, to hire General Matt Clark.  Hoover’s stationary shows an address at Bohemian Grove. 

Martin wrote:  “The Greatest Men’s Party on Earth, a title borrowed from a description of the Bohemian Grove attributed to Herbert Hoover, was a popular book by writer John Van der Zee, published after his working one summer as a waitperson at the Bohemian Grove.”  (Page 2).  “President Hoover gave chats almost every year from 1932 to his death in 1964.”  (Page 107)   Hoover camped at “Caveman.”  (Page 118).



Dwight Eisenhower was the 34th President from 1953-1961.  “It was in a speech at the Grove, for instance, that an army General named Eisenhower had warned of a coming conflict in a place called Korea.”  Friends in High Places, the Bechtel Story, page 13.  And from Martin, “Eisenhower gave a premier political address at the Grove in 1950 setting himself on the path to the presidency.” (Page 95).

Wikipedia says “On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel.” 



Richard Nixon was the 37th President from 1969-1974.   

From Martin, page 95:  In the summer of 1967, an agreement was struck between Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan at the Grove:  “Nixon and Reagan sat down informally at the Grove in 1967 to work a political deal wherein Reagan was to run only if Nixon “faltered” (Domhoff, G. William, The Bohemian Grove and Other Retreats: A study in ruling class cohesiveness, Harper and Row, 1974, page 42.)

Philip Weiss reported in 1989 that he asked Reagan if the story on the agreement with Nixon was true, and that Reagan confirmed the account.   

Weiss also wrote:  Nixon is “still listed as sleeping in Cave Man, one of the Grove’s 119 curiously and sometimes appropriately named camps.”  And:  “While president he had avoided the Grove, a custom Nixon cemented in 1971 when he canceled a speech planned for the lakeside in the secret encampment after the press insisted on covering it.”

Nixon Reagan Bohemian Grove

Fiona Barnett saidformer President Richard Nixon raped me in the back of a US / CIA military plane at Australia’s main military airport where Airforce One lands when it visits Australia.”



Camp Mandalay Bohemian Grove 1977

Gerald Ford was 38th President from 1974-1977.  Martin said “When Gerald Ford became the heir apparent, as Nixon was faltering, he was invited to his first Grove visit by Leonard Firestone.”  (Page 117).   I suppose that would have been the summer of 1974, as Nixon resigned and Ford was sworn in August 9, 1974.

Gerald Ford was also one of the first people that Cathy O’Brien reported that she was sexually assaulted by- while she was in the third grade.  (85).  This occurred at the Michigan state capital in Lansing, at the office of Michigan State Senator Guy VanderJagt, who took her to Ford.  Based on Cathy’s birthday which she reported as December 1957, this rape would have occurred sometime in the mid 1960s. Cathy was raped repeatedly by Ford over the years, including at Bohemian Grove at the “Underground” room.  In her books she sometimes uses the term “prostituted to,” but it’s clear that all of it was against her will.  



Jimmy Carter was 39th President 1977-1981.  Et tu Jimmy?   The only information I have on his trip to the Grove is this picture, which apparently came from “the Annals of the Bohemian Club (vol 7), 1987-1996,” according to, once again, Alex Jones.

Jimmy Carter Bohemian Grove



Ronald Reagan was the 40th President from 1981-1989.  The meeting where Reagan agreed not to challenge Nixon in the summer of 1967 has already been listed.  Weiss reported that Reagan’s longtime camp was Owl’s Nest. 

Cathy O’Brien reported that she was first taken to Reagan in the fall of 1982 by Senator Robert Byrd, where she was assaulted.  O’Brien said that Reagan had already seen pornography videos which she was forced to participate in.  These videos were filmed at United States government facilities in Huntsville, AL.  (TRANCE FORMATION OF AMERICA, page 126)



George Herbert Walker Bush was 41st President of the United States 1989-1993. 

George H. W. Bush was one of the “Bohemians Listed in the 1991 Security Exchange Commission Stock Holding Report” as a holder of stock in Harken Energy Corporation.  (From Martin, Appendix A).  

According to Business Insider, George H.W. Bush joined the club in 1973, while chairing the Republican National Committee during the Watergate scandal.  Bush camped at the Hillbillies Camp.  George H. W. Bush was one of the “Bohemians Listed in the 1991 Security Exchange Commission Stock Holding Report” as a holder of stock in Harken Energy Corporation.  (From Martin, Appendix A).  

George H. W. Bush repeatedly raped Cathy O’Brien’s young daughter, Kelly, beginning at age 3 and 1/2 years in the fall of 1983, with the knowledge of Ronald Reagan  (157-158).  Cathy also reported that she saw Bush in the Underground room at Bohemian Grove.  (170).



Bill Clinton was the 42nd President from 1993-2000.  Cathy O’Brien said she saw Clinton at the Underground room at Bohemian Grove.   However, Cathy O’Brien reported that when her daughter was 6 years old, Clinton at least turned down an offer from GWHB.   This quote (1:23:15) is from an interview Cathy gave in 2018.   Cathy also said she reported this in Access Denied, which I haven’t read yet.

“George Bush wanted my daughter to, who was just, she was like six years old, to perform oral sex and he, and Clinton said ‘No, you’re not going to do that because I know you’re filming me, for one,’ cause they had the films going, and to say that ‘you’re not going to blackmail with this particular thing.’  The fact is that he turned down the sex with the child.”  

This was in Lampe, Missouri.  O’Brien also said that Clinton turned down a chance to have sex with her and likely had sex with a man named Alex Houston instead (153-154).  Cathy also was forced to have sex with Hillary Clinton.  (155). 

When Cathy’s daughter Kelly was 6 years old, this would have been around 1986-1987, when Bush and the CIA were trafficking large quantities of drugs through Arkansas, leading to the murders of Don Henry and Kevin Ives (“The Boys on the Tracks”), which Don’s mother Linda is still trying to get to the bottom of.   This is the method I described earlier to compromise politicians-  get them early, then promote them.  As if Clinton’s numerous problems with adult women and his ties to drugs in Arkansas weren’t enough, GHWB tried to get him to do that with a 6 year old girl.



Bush and Jr Bohemian Grove

George Bush was the 43rd President from 2001-2009. 

According to Mark Dice, the above photo comes from the same “Annals of the Bohemian Grove” that Alex Jones referenced.  From Domhoff:  “In 1995, House Speaker Newt Gingrich delivered the Lakeside Talk on the middle Saturday of the encampment, and former President Bush had his turn on the final Saturday (pictured). He used the occasion to say that his son George W. Bush would make a great president some day.”

Bush Jr., as Cathy described him, was at least aware of his father’s rapes of the infant Kelly, as he transported Kelly to and from his father, apparently.  “George Bush Jr. deposited my obviously traumatized and withdrawn child at the door.”  (Page 196).  “It was also my experience that Jr. stood by his father and covered his backside whenever Bush would become incapacitated from drugs…”  (Page 194).




There are too many to list.  I just want the reader to get a general sense of the involvement of corporations in Bohemian Grove.

Martin, referencing Domhoff:

(Pages 2-3)  Domhoff presents his case (1974) by examining the structural relationship between Grove participants and the top 797 corporations in the U.S., finding that , “29% of these… corporations were represented by at least one officer or director (p.32)”.

Domhoff conducted a follow-up analysis in 1983 of Bohemian connections with the top 800 corporations in the U.S. which resulted in similar findings to his earlier work. Of the top 800 corporations in the U.S. in 1980 30% had at least one officer or director at the Grove.


Since I quote Martin and Domhoff so much, I should note that they do not agree with the concept of “elites” getting together at Bohemian Grove to conduct business and government (at least in the material I’ve referenced).

From Martin:

(Page 11)  In 1986, Domhoff was again quoted as saying “Bohemian Grove is not a place of power,… It is merely a place where powerful people relax and enjoy… most people are too drunk to remember any policy things let alone make them (West Sonoma County Paper, July 10-16, 1986 p.16).”

Protestor mythology of elites planning policy in the Grove has been persistent and unproven.

Martin’s work was influenced by attending the Grove himself, and he apparently didn’t see anything untoward.

Page 14:  During the two-year period of my research I was able to visit the Bohemian Club as a guest on two occasions. Fraternizing with Club members over dinner was most useful in gaining a sense of the interactive style of men at the Bohemian Club.

Again, I don’t think Bohemian Grove is 100% criminal.  The primary difference between my conclusions and the observations of Martin and Domhoff are based on the firsthand accounts of victims at Bohemian Grove which they do not discuss.





(Page 112)  On September 24, 1963 as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Warren and the entire U.S. Supreme Court were hosted for a double lamb chops lunch at the Bohemian Club, thereby giving numerous male San Franciscans an opportunity to see and meet the Justices firsthand (Bohemian Archive 1963).

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated November 22, 1963.


Earl Warren was a longtime Grover.  “Earl Warren was a Club member from 1941 to his death in 1974.”  (Martin, 112).  Warren was California’s 30th Governor from 1943-1953.  Warren was on the ticket with Dewey against Truman in 1948, and ran for the Republican nomination for President in 1952, which he lost to Eisenhower.  After Eisenhower won the White House, he appointed Warren to the Supreme Court in 1953.

Warren led the Warren Commission, which was a coverup of the CIA’s assassination of JFK (I don’t bother with “alleged” on that subject).   Other Grovers on the Warren Commission included:  Gerald Ford, the previously mentioned child rapist ;  Allen Dulles, an American who strongly backed Adolph Hitler both before and after World War II began; and  John J. McCloy, (a fellow Grover at the Pilgrims Society Camp with Allen Dulles) who “did a great deal of work for corporations in Nazi Germany and advised the major German chemical combine I. G. Farben, later notorious for manufacturing Zyklon B.”

Hale Boggs, Democrat-Louisiana was on the Warren Commission, but not at Bohemian Grove.  “Boggs dissented from the Warren Commission’s majority who supported the single bullet theory.”  “In 1972, while he was still majority leader, the twin engine airplane in which Boggs was traveling with congressman Nick Begich, of Alaska, and two others, disappeared while flying from Anchorage to Juneau, Alaska.”



According to Jones and Watson:

‘Kyle’ worked at Bohemian Grove in the summer of 2004 and 2005. He was able to physically confirm what the Bohemian Grove’s own annuals had told us for decades, that the elite of the elite attend the camp. Our source personally saw several high profile members of the US aristocracy, including New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the famous newsman Walter Cronkite and countless other luminaries.



The Sonoma County Free Press reported that Antonin Scalia was to give a Lakeside Chat at the Bohemian Grove July 25, 1997.

Anton Scalia has another link to Bohemian Grove.   Scalia died at Cibolo Creek Ranch February 13, 2016.  The Ranch was owned by John Poindexter, former National Security Advisor under President Reagan, and co-conspirator of Oliver North in the “IranContra” scandal.  Poindexter is a leader of St. Hubertus, according to the Washington Post.

John Poindexter St Hubertus

From the WaPo article:

Two other private planes that landed at the ranch for the weekend are linked to two men who have held leadership positions with the Texas chapter of the Order, according to a review of state business filings and flight records from the airport.

The International Order of St. Hubertus, according to its website, is a “true knightly order in the historical tradition.” In 1695, Count Franz Anton von Sporck founded the society in Bohemia, which is in modern-day Czech Republic.

The society’s U.S. chapter launched in 1966 at the famous Bohemian Club in San Francisco, which is associated with the all-male Bohemian Grove — one of the most well-known secret societies in the country.



From the San Fransisco Chronicle, July 2018:

All attention at the Bohemian Club’s annual redwood forest retreat in Sonoma County on Friday was on Camel’s Camp, where retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy took center stage.

“There was polite applause, but a lot of people didn’t clap,” said a club insider privy to the exchange. “There was a lot of talk that Kennedy sold out,” allegedly having agreed to retire from the bench in exchange for President Trump’s picking his conservative former law clerk Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him.



The aforementioned William Taft, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court 1921-1930, also President of the United States 1909-1913.  




Excuse the language on this part.  Nixon has been widely quoted on May 13, 1971 saying “The Bohemian Grove, which I attend from time to time – it is the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine.”  That quote is from Wikipedia, and 7 references are listed for that quote.   But that quote edits out a remark in the middle of Nixon’s comments where the dash is.    Here’s what Nixon actually said:

“Bohemian Grove, that I attend from time to time, the East Division/the others that come there, but it is the most faggy goddamned thing you can ever imagine.”   The East Division remark probably refers to Near East and South Asia Division of the CIA.   

And if you think the language “the East Division/the others that come there, but” is poorly formed, I agree.  It makes me wonder if the tape was spliced to edit out something.  



The CIA was created by the National Security Act of Congress in 1947, and it looks like most of the Directors came to the Grove at some point.

Obscurantist lists several CIA directors as members of Bohemian Grove.

  • John McCone (1961-1965).
  • George Herbert walker Bush (1976-1977)
  • William Casey (1981-1987)
  • William Webster (1987-1991)
  • James Woolsey (1993-1995)

Another that has been there:

Richard Helms (1966-1973)   San Fransisco Weekly    Richard Helms ordered all files on MK Ultra and other human experiments destroyed in 1973.



Allen Dulles

It was difficult for me to believe or comprehend O’Brien’s allegations that Presidents Bush, Ford, and Reagan were all pedophiles or rapists who preyed on victims in the CIA’s MK Ultra program under the subcategory Project Monarch.  The involvement of Allen Dulles (and Prescott Bush) with Adolf Hitler both before and after he came to power, and even during World War II, provided a “missing link” in my knowledge that I was not taught in school, and so I’ll include some brief background for the reader.  Emphasis mine.

From Yeadon and Hawkins, The Nazi Hydra in America:

(Page 50)  (Late 1932).  The radicalism cost Hitler and the Nazi Party dearly.  They lost 34 seats in the Reichstag and their source of funding from business leaders was severely cut…  With the arrival of a new year, the Nazi Party’s future looked dim.  Hopes were dashed by the November election, and the party experienced severe financial difficulties.  However, business leaders turned against the new Schleicher government and arranged a meeting between Hitler and von Papen .  The objective of the meeting at the Cologne home of Kurt von Schroeder was to form a new government led by Hitler and von Papen…

The meeting took place in utmost secrecy on Jan. 4 1933 with two Americans present:   John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles.  The Dulles brothers were there representing their client, Kuhn, Loeb & Co., which had extended large, short-term credits to Germany and needed assurance of repayment from Hitler before committing to support him.  Goebbels recorded the success of the meeting in his diary on Jan. 5, 1933:  “If this coup succeeds, we are not far from power… Our finances have suddenly improved.”

(Page 71)  By 1934, with Hitler in solid control of Germany, the profits from the Thyssen-Flick union soared to more than 100 million.  Both Union Bank and the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart were overflowing with money.   Prescott Bush became managing director of Union Bank and took over the day-to-day operations of the German plan.

Instead of divesting himself of the Nazi money and activities, Prescott Bush hired Allen Dulles to hide the Nazi assets.   Dulles Client list from Sullivan & Cromwell shows his first assignment at Brown Brothers Harriman as June 18, 1936.  The entry listed his work at Brown Brothers Harriman as “Disposal of Standard Oil Investing Stock.”

(Page 72)   July 31, 1941, New York Herald-Tribune ran a bold headline “Hitler Angel Has $3 Million in U.S. Bank.”  The article described Thyssen as the angel and reported the money actually belonged to “Nazi bigwigs,” including Goebbels, Hermann Goering, Heinrich Himmler or even Hitler himself.  The account was deposited in Union Bank.

Oct. 20, 1942, under authority of the Trading with the Enemy Act, the U.S. Congress seized UBC and liquidated its assets.

Project Monarch, an undisclosed subcategory of MK Ultra, has its roots in Heinrich Himmler’s genetic experiments in Nazi Germany.  Allen Dulles helped bring Hitler to power in Germany in 1933.  Allen Dulles became Director of the CIA February 26, 1953.  The CIA officially began MK Ultra April 13, 1953.

Dulles gave at least one speech at Bohemian Grove.   From Friends in High Places, The Bechtel Story

Page 95:  Later, after Eisenhower had become president, his director of Central Intelligence, Allen Dulles, warned Grove members of the threat of Communism- a refrain H-bomb “father” Edward Teller reiterated at The Grove a quarter century later, this time in connection with the Persian Gulf.



I’m sure there are too many to make a proper accounting of, so this section is just a “for instance” section.


From Martin:

Page 11.  One of the foremost political events in which the Bohemian political network played a significant role was the United Nations Conference of International Organization (UNCIO), April 25th to June 26, 1945 in San Francisco. This was the original formation meeting for the United Nations, with delegates from fifty nations. Receptions for UNCIO delegates and key dignitaries were held at the Bohemian Club on May 17, May 29, June 4, and June 5. Towards the end of the U.N. conference the Club invited all delegates to a program at the Grove.  (Footnote says:  “The Russian delegates declined to attend.”)



Philip Weiss quoted Henry Kissinger as saying:  “‘That Indian is here, Bajpai.’  (He meant Shankar Bajpai, former ambassador to the U.S.)  ‘Today they had a Russian.”’ The Russian was the physicist Roald Sagdeev, a member of the Soviet Supreme Council of People’s Deputies, who had given a speech to Kissinger and many other powerful men too.”



In 1992, Prince Bandar bin Sultan and Lamar Alexander gave “Weekend Lakeside Chats” at Bohemian Grove.  (Martin, Page 109).  In TRANCE, Cathy O’Brien reported that both Lamar Alexander (179) and Prince Bandar bin Sultan (143) (George H. W. Bush’s close friend) abused her. 



Page 170:  My purpose at the Grove was sexual in nature, and therefore my perceptions were limited to a sex slave’s viewpoint.  As an effective means of control to ensure undetected proliferation of their perverse indulgence, slaves such as myself were subjected to ritualistic trauma.  I knew each breath I took could be my last, as the threat of death lurked in every shadow.  Slaves of advancing age or with failing programming were sacrificially murdered “at random” in the wooded grounds of Bohemian Grove, and I felt it was “simply a matter of time until it would be me.”  Rituals were held at a giant concrete owl monument on the banks of, ironically enough, the Russian (rushin’) River.  These occultist sex rituals stemmed from the scientific belief that mind controlled slaves required severe trauma to ensure compartmentalization of the memory, and not from any spiritual motivation. 

My own threat of death was instilled when I witnessed the sacrificial death of a young, dark haired victim at which time I was instructed to perform sexually “as though my life depended upon it.”  I was told, “…the next sacrifice victim could be you.   Anytime when you least expect it, the owl will consume you.  Prepare yourself, and stay prepared.”  Being “prepared” equated to being totally suggestible, i.e. “on my toes” awaiting their command.




From another WordPress blog by Cathy Fox, quoting a statement of Fiona Barnett:

After this, I was child sex trafficked from Sydney airport to California, USA, in a cargo plane. I was gassed and stuffed in a wooden crate like an animal. During this trip, I was raped by media founder Ted Turner at a pedophile party held at Disneyland, and I was trafficked to the annual summer camp at Bohemian Grove attended by notable politicians, businessmen and other VIPs. I was raped by Reverend Billy Graham in a pink bubble themed cabin at Bohemian Grove. Billy Graham told me his good buddy Richard Nixon had recommended me to him. At Bohemian Grove, I was one of a group of children dressed as teddy bears and hunted for sport by men in the forest, to the theme song “Teddy Bears Picnic”. I also witnessed the ritual murder of a woman by male guests dressed in black Luciferian robes.

If you read the rest of that link, you’ll see that Fiona reported a similar background to Cathy O’Brien in that she was abused by her family from an early age and turned over to this network, or program.

Cathy was also hunted- by Dick Cheney.  He called it “A Most Dangerous Game.”  This occurred in Greybull, Wyoming, where he violently raped her and threatened to kill her (page 99), and Mount Shasta, California, on government property (page 194).  When Cheney “captured” O’Brien in a fenced area at Mount Shasta, he raped her with his dog, which had been trained for this purpose in the MK Ultra program.




Yeadon and Hawkins in The Nazi Hydra in America:

Page 564:  …(Paul) Bonacci told investigators of being taken to Bohemian Grove where he and two boys were forced to perform acts on each other.  After one of the boys was murdered, they were forced to eat parts of him.  A snuff pornography film was made of the events.  At the time, Bonacci was too young to realize he was at Bohemian Grove; however, from his description of the surroundings, the location is unmistakable.

Bonacci suffers from multiple personality disorder induced by MONARCH programming.  He told investigators the ring, which plunged him into Satanism, was centered at Offutt air base. He was first abused at Offutt when he was 3 years old.  He described his MONARCH programming as a series of tortures, heavy drugging and sexual abuse.  He also said he was trained in military arts, including assassination.   In fact, his knowledge in these realms cannot be accounted for by any other means.  Bonacci and others have given evidence of the central role Lt. Col. Michael Aquino played in the programming.




As follows will be a brief summary of Cathy O’Brien’s description of Project Monarch in her book, co-authored with Mark Phillips, TRANCE FORMATION OF AMERICA.

Project Monarch took victims of multi-generational incest abuse into the program.  This ran in Cathy’s family.  Cathy’s father was caught sending bestiality/child pornography of her through the U.S. mail and was offered immunity from prosecution in return for giving his child to the program.

Incest/abuse at an early age creates “trauma” in the victims.  Once called “multiple personality disorder,” it is now referred to as Dissociative Identity Disorder.  The brain tries to work around this trauma, resulting in some nonstandard brain activity patterns.  The CIA heightened this trauma through horrible methods such as electroshock, sexual torture, LSD, sensory deprivation, etc.

One of the results of this trauma is a heightened ability for memorization.  Another result is the ability to put memory into a “compartment” of the human mind, or a “personality” after the mind splits or “dissociates.”  This made Cathy useful as “carrier pigeon.”  Her mind was dissociated and she was made to memorize messages into a personality or compartment which could be activated by her handler later, at which point she could repeat the message.

So Reagan/Bush used Cathy to deliver messages to world leaders, such as a plan she delivered to Mexico’s President Miguel de la Madrid.   The plan involved trafficking drugs across the US/Mexico border at Juarez, Mexico.  (Page 201-202).   The deal was Mexico just needed to get it to the border and the U.S. would take it from there.

O’Brien referred to Project Monarch having roots in Himmler’s experiments.  Joseph Mengele, under Himmler at Auschwitz, conducted genetic experiments on twins.  Cathy reported that after enough generations pass by with traumatized incest victims, the traumatized brain patterns become autogenetic, thus the link to the genetics aspect of the Sadistic, immoral and illegal study of Project Monarch.




It’s tempting to dismiss any one statement of a witness to these types of atrocities at Bohemian Grove.  They’ve all been subjected to hypnosis and drugs, which tends to create doubt in a juries mind.   It’s not just one statement, however;  it’s at least 3 separate but similar accounts.  That’s not easily dismissed.   And the government has not dismissed their accounts as false or unsubstantiated.  It has simply refused to investigate.  This section will discuss some other cases that are similar to the type of Occult/Satanic type events that the three previous witness described, and why any attempts to get the Government to investigate were Obstructed.



Aquino 2

Michael Aquino


To begin with, despite the lie on Cathy O’Brien’s Wikipedia page, that “According to scholars, there is no credible evidence for O’Brien’s claims,” she provided a great deal of verifiable evidence.   For instance, on Lt. Col Michael Aquino’s role in her “training”:  “In the early 1980’s, my base programming was instilled at Fort Campbell, Kentucky by U.S. Army Lt. Colonel Michael Aquino.  Aquino holds a TOP SECRET clearance in the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Psychological Warfare Division (PSYOPS).  He is a professed Neo-Nazi, the founder of the Himmler inspired satanic Temple of Set, and has been charged with child ritual and sexual abuse at the Presidio Day Care in San Francisco, California.” (TRANCE, Page 110)

Wikipedia says “Born in 1946, Michael Aquino was a military intelligence officer specializing in psychological warfare.  In 1969 he joined Anton LaVey‘s Church of Satan and rose rapidly through the group’s ranks.”

From The Nazi Hydra:

Page 559:  Linked with both Offutt and the Presidio cases is Aquino, who founded the Temple of Set, an offshoot of Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan.  He was attached to the DIA’s Psychological Warfare Division and holds top secret security clearance for his work in military intelligence and classified psychological warfare.  Aquino is obsessed with Nazi pagan rituals. He officiated at SS black magic ceremonies held at Wewelsburg, the castle once used by SS chief Heinrich Himmler to create an order of Teutonic Knights, based on the Knights Templars.  His hypnotic manipulation of people made him an ideal candidate for the position of master programmer.  Aquino and others were arrested for child molesting.  Evidence of their guilt was overwhelming, but all charges were dropped, to the dismay of the victims’s parents.  Aquino has developed training tapes on how to create a MONARCH slave.  He worked as a liaison between government-military intelligence and various criminal organizations and occult groups in distributing MONARCH slaves.

Page 560:  On Aug. 14, 1987, San Fransisco police raided Aquino’s home after the brutal rape of a 4 year-old girl there.  The principal suspect in the rape was a Baptist minister named Gary Hambright.  Hambright was indicted on charges that he committed “lewd and lascivious acts” with six boys and four girls, ranging in age from 3-7, from September-October 1986.  At the time of the alleged sex crimes, Hambright was employed at a childcare center on the U.S. Army base in Presidio.  Police also claimed Hambright was involved in at least 58 separate incidents of child sexual abuse.  One of the victims identified Aquino and his wife as participants in the child rape.   Aquino’s home also serve as headquarters of the Satanic Temple of Set.  During the raid, police confiscated 38 videotapes, photo negatives and other evidence that the home had been the hub of a pedophile ring.

Although the evidence was overwhelming, Aquino was never charged with child abuse.  On April 19, 1988, U.S. Attorney Joseph Russoniello dropped the 10-count indictment against Hambright on the grounds that there was insufficient evidence linking him or the Aquinos to the crimes.  Russoniello later was implicated in efforts to cover up the links between the Nicaraguan Contras and South American cocaine trafficking.

Note the part where “police confiscated 38 videotapes.”  There’s a pattern.  Also note the use of U.S. Government facilities.



Qualifications that Ted Gunderson listed in his investigation of “The Finders.”


  • 1977-79 Senior Special Agent-in-Charge, Los Angeles, California
  • 1973-77 Special Agent-in-Charge of Memphis, Tennessee and Dallas, Texas
  • 1973 Chief Inspector
  • 1965-73 Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge, New Haven, Connecticut and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • 1960-65 Special Agent Supervisor, FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C,
  • 1951-60 Special Agent


It’s not clear who wrote this introduction in this document on “The Finders,” but I believe it was Ted Gunderson.

The Finders” is a CIA Front established in the 1960’s. Members are specially trained Government kidnappers with top clearance and protection in their assigned task of stealing children, torturing and sexually abusing them, sometimes involving them in satanic sexual orgies, bloody rituals and murder of other children with the slaughter of animals. The Finders are known sexual degenerates who use a fleet of unmarked cars to grab targeted children from parks and schoolyards.  Many times using their own child members as decoys, they lure the innocent children away from the crowd close to their vans.  The adults inside grab the children, drug them  and transport them to a series of safe houses where they await their ill fated end.  They are then used in ceremonies.  The children are either murdered and sacrificed for body parts, or they are sold as sex slaves, auctioned off at various locations in the northern hemisphere.  In the past they have been auctioned off near Las Vegas, Nevada and Toronto, Canada, Lincoln, Nebraska, Michigan and Houston, Texas. 

Marion David Pettie, the leader of the cult is an identified pedophile, homosexual, and CIA officer.  His son was a former employee of a CIA proprietary firm, Air America, which was notorious for smuggling drugs, destined for the United States out of the Golden Triangle into Saigon during the Viet Nam War. 

The Tallahassee police department contacted the Department of the Treasury Feb 2, 1987.   Why the contacted the Treasury instead of the FBI, I don’t know.  Maybe it was because Bohemian Grover William Webster was running the FBI at the time.  The Department of Treasury puts the Washington D.C. and Tallahassee Police Departments in contact with each other and closes their part of the investigation.  (They had previously identified the children).

This office (Department of the Treasury) was contacted by the Tallahassee Police Department on February 5, 1987, who requested assistance in attempting to identify two adult males and six minor children, all taken into custody the previous day.  The men, arrested and charged with multiple counts of child abuse, were being very evasive with police in the questions being asked of them pursuant the children and their condition.

A short time later this office was contacted by Detective Jim Bradley of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.  Bradley indicated that the case here in Tallahassee appeared to be strongly related to a case he was currently working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Subsequently this office received a telephone call from the Washington, D,C. Metropolitan Police Department inquiring about the men and children. This office put the MPD and the TPD in contact with each other.

A short time later this office was contacted by Detective Jim Bradley of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department. Bradley indicated that the case here in Tallahassee appeared to be strongly related to a case he was currently working in the Washington, D.C. area.

He stated that the actions of the two men in custody in Tallahassee relative the children just might give his case enough probable cause for search warrants to search premises occupied by a Cult group called the FINDERS.

This agent directed Bradley to telephone TPD and discuss with police directly any activities forthcoming relative the instant case. 

I’ll flash forward to  the end here, from FBI agent Ted Gunderson, who tried to meet with Bradly of the Washington MPD on April 2 of 1987:

I arrived at MPD at approximately 9:00 a.m.

Detective Bradley was not available. I spoke to a third party who was willing to discuss the case with me on a strictly “off the record” basis.

I was advised that all the passport data had been turned over to the State Department for their investigation. The State Department in turn, advised MPD that all travel and use of the passports by the holders of the passports was within the law and no action would be taken.This included travel to Moscow, North Korea, and North Vietnam from the late 1950’s to mid 1970’s.

The individual further advised me of circumstances which indicated that the investigation into the activity of the FINDERS had become a CIA internal matter. The MPD report has been classified secret and was not available for review.  I was advised that the FBI had withdrawn from the investigation several weeks prior and that the FBI Foreign Counter Intelligence Division had directed MPD not to advise the FBI Washington Field Office of anything that had transpired.

No further information will be available. No further action will be taken.

The police did get a warrant for a warehouse “The Finders” were using in Tallahassee, however, and Special Agent of the United States Customs Service Ramon J. Martinez was allowed access, and made a detailed report.   Here’s what the State Department/CIA covered up, in part, from Martinez’ report:

  • On Friday, 2/6/87, I met Detective Bradley at the warehouse on 4th Street, N.E. I duly advised my acting group supervisor, SS/A Don Bludworth: I was again granted unlimited access to the premises.
  • one of the officers presented me with a photo album for my review. The album contained a series ‘of photos of adults and children dressed in white sheets participating in a ‘blood ritual.” The ritual centered around the execution of at least two goats.

  • Further inspection of the premises disclosed numerous files relating to activities of the organization in different pacts of the world. Locations I observed are as follows: London, Germany, the Bahamas, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Africa, Costa Rica, and Europe.

  • One such telex specifically ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be arranged through a contact in the Chinese Embassy there.

  • There was one file entitled “Pentagon Break-In,” and others which referred to members operating in foreign countries.

  • Not observed by me but related by an HPD officer, were intelligence files on private families not related to the Finders. The process undertaken appears to have been a systematic response to local newspaper advertisements for babysitters, tutors, etc.

  • The warehouse contained a large library, two kitchens, a sauna, hot-tub and a ‘video room.’ The video room, seemed to be set up as an indoctrination center. It also appeared the organization had the capability to produce its own videos.
  • There were what appeared to be training areas for children
  • what appeared to be an altar set up in a residential area of the warehouse.
  • I should also mention that both premises were equipped with satellite dish antennas.

I’m quoting from the Department of Treasury, FBI, and United States Customs Service for “The Finders.”  Read it yourself.   This is what it looks like when the government actually investigates something instead of someone writing a blog.  The following is what it looks like when the government covers it up a former FBI agent gets pissed.  Ted Gunderson again:

I filed formal complaints on six occasions with the FBI demanding an investigation of the FINDERS and the international trafficking of children who have been kidnapped or obtained through subterfuge (orphanages; and on occasion the agency known as the Child Protective Services) but the FBI refused to contact me.  I have received two complaints from airline employees that airplanes containing several hundred children were flown to Paris France from Denver Colorado and Los Angeles, California. Two hundred and ten children were reportedly on The manifest of the Denver plane. In addition Paul Bonacci told me about children who were auctioned off in the early 1980s outside Las Vegas, Nevada and Toronto, Canada. These children were auctioned off in their underwear with a number on a card around their necks, some for $50,000 each (see the Franklin Cover up Investigation). One hundred and ninety one children assigned to the Child protective Services in Florida are missing with no indication of their whereabouts.



John DeCamp published “The Franklin Coverup” in May of 1992, reporting “Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska.”  It’s not fun reading.  The more disturbing details being on page 200 “KATHLEEN SORENSON’S STORY.”   Trust that the Franklin Coverup contains the same types of ritual abuse as with Bohemian Grove, Michael Aquino, and the Finders.  In this scandal/coverup, witnesses saw George Herbert Walker Bush at “sex parties” and noted that he left with a boy.

I’ll focus more on the coverup aspect of these crimes, which by no means is a full account of the coverup.   Most telling, I think, are former CIA Director William Colby’s comments.  

John DeCamp knew former CIA Director William Colby.  The following is DeCamp quoting Colby in a conversation he had with him in 1991 on the Franklin Nebraska satanic ring.

“What you have to understand, John, is that sometimes there are forces and events too big, too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, no matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have. That is simply one of the hard facts of life you have to face. You have done your part. You have tried to expose the evil and wrongdoing. It has hurt you terribly. But it has not killed you up to this point. I am telling get out of this before it does. Sometimes things are just too big for us to deal with, and we have to step aside and let history take its course. For you, John, this is one of those times,” Bill warned, with Sally nodding her head in affirmation…

“Sometimes,” Bill said, “There are forces too powerful for us to whip them individually, in the time frame that we would like. We have to keep working at our goal. But we have to be sensible enough, not to risk everything and get ourselves destroyed or killed in the process. That victory we seek may take much longer than we wanted, and come in ways we never anticipated.

Ted Gunderson also got involved with the Franklin coverup.  He wrote to Attorney General William Barr on the matter March 11, 1992.  The transcripts of Gunderson’s communications with the DOJ on Franklin coverup come from the same online document I referenced in The Finders.

Dear Mr. Barr:

The enclosed report contains information which indicated that FBI personnel have been in violation of the Obstruction of Justice statute.

The report also contains information concerning the Johnny Gosch kidnapping case in Des Moines, Iowa.  There appears to be an organized kidnapping ring operation in this country within the jurisdiction of the FBI that is not receiving the proper attention.  I would appreciate your checking into this matter.


Ted L. Gunderson

Barr referred the matter to Robert Mueller, who replied April 20, 1992.

The letter and enclosures that you have recently sent to Attorney General Barr have been referred to this office. 

Your letter alleges that personnel of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have obstructed justice and states that you have information concerning kidnapping with the jurisdiction of the FBI. 

Having reviewed your enclosures, however, there is no evidence of misconduct by FBI personnel that would justify your charge of obstruction of justice.

If you have any new information about kidnapping, please provide it to your local office of the FBI.


Robert S. Mueller, III

Assistant Attorney General

Gunderson then replied to Mueller May 26, 1992.

Dear Mr. Mueller:

Thank you for reviewing the material I sent you March II, 1992.

I did not state that FBI personnel were in violation of the Obstruction of Justice statute. I only advised that there was an indication of this. I thought you would want to at least check into the matter. I am sorry to learn you do not feel it deserves further attention.

I have enclosed the book The Franklin Cover-up, by former Nebraska State Senator John W. DeCamp. Your attention is directed to Chapter 14, “Cover-up Phase III: The FBI,” which makes additional allegations of FBI misconduct and possible violations of the Obstruction of Justice statute.


Ted L. Gunderson



This section comes from Mark Philips, who co-authored TRANCE FORMATION OF AMERICA with Cathy O’Brien.

Pages 4-5.

Historians provide us a glimpse into the future through recorded events of the past.  It appears that throughout recorded history, man has, towards the end of each millennium, returned to a focus on certain types of bizarre human behavior.  For example, there has been in the past 150 years a resurgence of the wide spread interest in the occult “black arts,” which include satanism or Luciferian religions.  These Constitutionally protected “religions” use trauma to control the minds of their followers. 

Mind control practices with the occult groups (according to survivors adjudged edible and law enforcement officials) have been accredited with bridging the gap between applied science and Shamanism.   Occultism as a manner of religious expression has been around for thousands of years.  Only in the last 150 years has science aggressively pursued the truths regarding mind manipulation hidden within the occult belief systems..

In 1971, the New York Times reported on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and occult research, the basis of which was gained through a collection of documents released by the U.S. Government Printing Office under the Freedom of Information Act.  This was a report to Congress and clearly showed that the CIA was interested in the cause and effect clinical findings that occult religious practices have on the Black Arts practitioner and/or the observer’s mind.  Of particular interest to the CIA were the heightened levels of suggestibility that certain occult rituals produced in the minds of the practitioners.  Cannibalism and blood rituals were ranked highest in the order of importance to their research.




So if Nixon, Reagan, Ford, and Bush were all pedophile/rapists, how would they Obstruct any investigations into themselves?  Apparently, somewhere in the Executive Branch are some secret, unconstitutional memos that create a type of Orwellian circular logic.

Such insanity is mentioned in Acid Dreams The Complete Social History of LSD: The CIA, The Sixties, and Beyond by Lee and Schlain, 1985.  It references a CIA operation where the CIA gave LSD to American citizens without their knowledge to study their reactions.  “A previously classified document explained why the program was shrouded in secrecy:  ‘The knowledge that the Agency is engaging in unethical and illicit activities would have serious repercussions in political and diplomatic circles and would be detrimental to the accomplishment of its mission.'”

That’s another way of saying “it’s so bad we can’t tell you about it.”  It’s another way of saying “we can anything we want as long as it’s bad enough.”

One could argue that if it was disclosed publicly that George H. W. Bush was a child rapist while he was in office, or even not in office, that it would seriously damage the reputation of the United States to the point that the disclosure would also damage National Security.  The President might have more trouble negotiating a missile treaty, or an unfriendly nation might choose a period of political turmoil in the United States as a good time to make military maneuvers that are hostile to America or her allies, under the theory that the U.S. Congress the public would be less likely to support the pedophile President.  Those would be some “serious repercussions in political and diplomatic circles and would be detrimental to the accomplishment of its (CIA) mission.”

The Supreme Court created the concept of “executive privilege” on July 24, 1974 in United States vs. Nixon (although the Court said the privilege was limited and made Nixon turn over his tapes anyway.)   Ford took that limited power and claimed it as absolute one on September 16, 1975 in “Document 9.” a memo which described “Materials to be Supplied” to the Pike Committee investigating CIA abuses in MK Ultra and other programs.

In addition to withholding information that could damage “sources and methods,” as can be withheld under the National Security Act of 1947, Ford’s White House said they would also withhold:

“Other matters, the complete confidentiality of which the President certifies is essential to the effective discharge of Presidential powers, may be withheld.”

Let me refresh the reader’s memory.   President Ford raped at least one MK Ultra sex slave, Cathy O’Brien.  I’m sure it would have been difficult for Ford to “effectively discharge his Presidential powers” if he had disclosed that fact to the Pike Committee which was investigating MK Ultra.

Dick Cheney raped Cathy O’Brien as well.   In 1975, during the Church and Pike Committee hearings, Cheney was Deputy Assistant to the President and later Chief of Staff.  Cheney pushed back against the Pike Committee’s requests for information, as described in National Security Archives:

In this note (DOCUMENT 5) Deputy Assistant to the President, Dick Cheney updates President Ford on the Executive Branch’s response to Pike’s “unilateral” declassification of a document that contained “four words referring to communications security.” Cheney explains that the Executive Branch will decline to provide further classified documents until the Pike Committee “satisfactorily altered its position concerning declassification.”

Dick Cheney has made good use of “executive privilege” over the years.  (Enron, Valerie Plame, Energy Task Force).

The system for coverups is simple and effective.  The Attorney General or President pull any information they want off the table for reasons of National Security or Executive Privilege.  The prosecutors are left to make a case with what evidence they have left.

Case in point:



I consider myself a fair judge of character, and Mueller doesn’t seem like the type of person to engage in or condone the type of criminal activity at issue in this article.  That’s putting it mildly.  I think he hates it.  I think his square jaw and curt replies (yes, no, I’m not going to get into that) are evidence of being disgusted by his job.   It’s like he’s clenched his teeth most his life.  That said, let’s take a look a his track record.



Robert Mueller became Director of the FBI July 5, 2001.  The Palm Beach police department fielded a tip about Epstein in November 2004, then began an investigation March 2005.  Somewhere along the way Epstein was tipped off about the investigation and removed all had all the computers with records of his entire organization moved to another location.  Detective Joseph Recarey complained about how Palm Beach didn’t confiscate the computers at the other location, and died under questionable circumstances.

The FBI began an investigation of Epstein July 2006.  If you look through their heavily redacted files, you can still tell that they were making good progress on their investigation before they dropped it cold.  September 8, 2008, File 6, Page 21:  “Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon.”   The government needs to make the details of this “agreement” public.  Robert Mueller probably had to sign it. 

This document may provide insight as to how this National Security/Executive Privilege/Don’tEmbarrassThePresident Obstruction of Justice method actually works.  We all know by now that President Clinton was involved with Epstein, as was President Trump.



Odds are you haven’t heard of David Asimov, but he’s another one who got a “Sweetheart Deal.”   This was back in March 1998, when Mueller was U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California.  The case was in Sonoma County, California, the same county as “Bohemian Grove.”

San Fransisco Gate:

“The whole house was full of VCRs, commercial tapes, homemade tapes and sophisticated equipment for taping and duplicating,” he said.

Police have seized 3,000 to 4,000 tapes and video cassettes and hundreds of computer discs, and “a good portion of it is pornography, and most of that is child pornography,” Medvigy alleged.

From Kris Millegan:  

David Asimov, of Living Oak Court, Bennett Ridge, Santa Rosa, the son of the late science fiction writer Isaac Asimov, was sentenced on March 28, 2001 to six months’ home detention with electronic monitoring and three years federal probation for possessing child pornography…

Asimov had 14 video machines arranged for high-speed editing and copying, and possessed cases of blank tapes. In addition to the videotapes and computer disks recovered, police reportedly found video cameras, several VCRs, and a costly table-top scanner to create computer images. “He had a whole lot of editing and mass production capabilities,” Santa Rosa Police officer Zamudio said.

The identity of the child whom Asimov alleged exploited was never revealed to the public. Parents and associates of the child never came forward. Was there a secret settlement in the style of Michael Jackson? Was any effort at all made to identify the children in the tapes? In Europe, parents who are looking for their missing children or for evidence of child abuse are allowed to view pictures of faces of children depicted in porno tapes which are seized by the police…

In fact, a few days later, Judge Frank Passalacqua released Asimov after having been told no local victims were identified in the porn seized from Asimov’s home. Thus, within only a few days of his arrest, Asimov was released, because the police happened to know no local victims were involved. How could they have known so fast?

The Sonoma County District Attorney J. Michael Mullins covered up the case, let the public believe the feds would prosecute it more thoroughly, and then passed the cover up to U.S. Attorney Mueller…

In the summer of 1999, U.S. Attorney Mueller engaged in plea deal with Asimov, by dropping two counts.

Again, I don’t think Robert Mueller condones things like this.  Asimov’s operation was huge.  The question is, why would they give him 6 months house detention and block the evidence from the public?  The real problem here is not so much the lenient sentence, which is bad enough, but the way the government refused to follow up on the evidence they had gathered to expose the entire operation.  It’s a pattern they repeat over and over, and it suggests government involvement in the actual creation of these videos.  Cathy O’Brien said she was repeatedly tortured and filmed at government facilities.  Evidence was suppressed in Michael Aquino’s child abuse involving government facilities.  Ted Gunderson, respected former FBI agent turned private investigator, said “the finders” were working for the government, and that investigation was shut down cold as well.

Cathy O’Brien also said she was filmed for blackmail purposes at Bohemian Grove, the same Sonoma County that David Asimov was manufacturing child pornography for distribution.  I think there’s a good chance that some of the films Asimov duplicated were made at nearby Bohemian Grove.



From FBI Filesfile 4 pages 8-9:    

On 11/8/2003, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch in Santa Ynez, California….  The search was for evidence in support of child molestation allegations against Jackson.

The FBI was only assisting in this investigation at the request of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s office.  One of the things the Sheriff’s office asked the FBI to do was tell them what was on some DVDs they confiscated at Neverland, because they were encrypted with some type of proprietary software and they could not read them.  File 2, Page 37, March 29, 2004:  


There is no evidence in the FBI files of any followup from the FBI back to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department on what was on these DVDs.   The state of California went to trial against Michael Jackson in 2005 without the benefit of this evidence.   Jackson was acquitted.  3 boys testified in Jackson’s defense:  MaCaulay Culkin, Wade Robson, and James Safechuck.   All 3 later changed their stories.  MaCaulay Culkin said he was introduced to Michael Jackson by Donald Trump, which contradicted the testimony he gave in court.  In the HBO Documentary Leaving Neverland, Wade Robson and James Safechuck said they were pressured to lie

The issue here, again, is why this information was apparently withheld from the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s office.  Did someone stamp “NATIONAL SECURITY” on some more child porn?   Sure looks like it.   I hate to pick on Mueller but he was FBI Director at the time.



Of course their are other pressing “national security” issues besides child porn and child rape.  You have links of the United States to drug trafficking and terrorism, including quite likely Osama bin Laden, where the bank of choice was Bank of Credit and Commerce International.

In 1991 when BCCI was being investigated Robert Mueller was “head of the Justice Department’s criminal division.”  You can read some of Mueller’s comments on BCCI, which he investigated, in this Newsweek link.


VII A 5.  9/11

The involvement of individuals in the United States government in the 9/11 conspiracy has been covered up, and once again Robert Mueller was Director of the FBI during the coverup.

Spoiler alert:  George H. W. Bush and Prince Bandar bin Sultan are two of the main architects of 9/11, with heavy involvement from Israel and an unknown level of support from Britain and Russia.  History will prove me right on that, I just don’t know when.  Throw that statement in the “conspiracy theory” bin for now.

Robert Mueller is mentioned prominently in a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia over 9/11.

…former FBI investigators say their old boss didn’t feel the same concern when they uncovered multiple, systemic efforts by the Saudi government to assist the hijackers in the lead-up to the 9/11 attacks..

9/11 victims agree. “He was the master when it came to covering up the kingdom’s role in 9/11,” said survivor Sharon Premoli, who was pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Center 18 years ago.

“In October of 2001, Mueller shut down the government’s investigation after only three weeks, and then took part in the Bush [administration’s] campaign to block, obfuscate and generally stop anything about Saudi Arabia from being released,” added Premoli, now a plaintiff in the 9/11 lawsuit against Saudi Arabia.

I hate to say it, and I know it hurts, but 9/11 is the kind of thing that happens when you cover up things like BCCI.  Oh, and maybe some foreign intelligence services had some tapes of Bush raping children.



From “Mueller Report:”

“Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Lavrov Trump

Come on man.  Just come on.  Somewhere there is a big file marked TRUMP/RUSSIA COLLUSION with “National Security” or “Executive Privilege” stamped on it.   That’s how it works.  We live in an era where Seth Abramson does a better job than the best and brightest in the DOJ with subpoena power.



Let me write a Hollywood ending to all this.  In researching this article, I’ve seen how the government pyschiatrists in “MK Ultra” sought to get to the truth out of people with THC, LSD, Mescaline, scopalimine, electrical shock, sleep deprivation, radio waves, hypnosis, other tortures and a bunch of other stuff.

This is all we need.  One bottle of Bourbon, two glasses, and an offer of limited immunity to Robert Mueller to answer all questions in an open hearing before Congress under Oath truthfully on the subject:  “Method and Knowledge of coverup of American politicians involved with child rape, murder, terrorism, etc.”   Schiff could get it out of him, as long as they both ingest 4-6 fluid ounces first (my calculation).  Fill the room with surviving victims and families of victims who have died in 9/11 and MK Ultra.  Bright lights.  I bet Mueller would go from “yes, no, I’m not going to get into that” to talking for days.

The Executive Branch of the United States is used as a front to commit heinous crimes because that branch can Obstruct investigations while appearing to investigate.  Criminals use the tool of partial, limited investigations.  Further, most of the people who make it into the White House are already heavily compromised by their crimes, and  foreign governments have that information.  The system of using the Executive Branch to shelter crime is not in the “National Security” interests of the United States.

The man who gave the great speech The Evolving Organized Crime Threat knows how this system works as well as anyone in the world.  (Barr does too.)  My question for Mueller:  do you want your name associated with the coverups of these crimes forever, or do you want to clear the air?





As promised in the introduction.  This account comes from Cathy O’Brien.

Pages 169-171. 

Among these internationally scandalous tapes are numerous videos covertly produced at the supposedly secure political sex playground in northern California, Bohemian Grove.  According to Houston, Dante’s high tech undetectable cameras used fiber optics, and fish eye lens were in each of the club’s numerous sexual perversion theme rooms.  My knowledge of these cameras was due to the strategically compromising positions of the political perpetrators I was prostituted to in the various kinky theme rooms. 

I was programmed and equipped to function in all rooms at Bohemian Grove in order to compromise specific government targets according to their personal perversions…

The only room where business discussions were permitted was the small, dark lounge affectionately and appropriately referred to as the Underground.  (Footnote:  The wooden sign was carved to read:  U.N.DERGROUND).  

Sex slaves were not routinely permitted in the Underground for security reasons, leaving the lounge’s small stage as the only source of “entertainment.”  This entertainment ranged from would-be talents such as Lee Atwater, Bill Clinton, and George Bush to CIA Operative entertainers such as BoxCar Willie and Lee Greenwood.  On one occasion I was instructed to meet with former President Gerald Ford in the Underground where Lee Atwater was picking and singing.  As I walked through the smoke filled room to Ford’s table, Atwater interrupted his song to cryptically acknowledge my unwelcome presence by singing choruses of “Over the Rainbow” and Byrd’s song for me “Country Roads” while emphasizing the lines of “Almost heaven, West Virginia.” …

The club offered a “Necrophilia” them room to its members.  I was so heavily drugged and programmed when used in the “necrophilia” room, that the threat of actually “slipping through death’s door” and being sacrificed “before I knew it” did not affect me.  My whole existence was balanced precariously on the edge of death as a matter of routine anyway.  My robotic state did not permit me the “luxury” of self-preservation, and I could only do exactly what I was told to do.  My necrophilia room experience was only for the purpose of providing Dante a compromising film of a targeted member anyway. 

Other perversion theme rooms at the Bohemian Club included what I heard Ford refer to as the “Dark Room.”  When he not so cleverly said, “Let’s go to the Dark Room and see what develops,” I understood from experience that he was interested in indulging in his perverse obsession for pornography.  In the Dark Room, members had sex with the same mind controlled slave they were viewing in porn on a big screen television.  

There was a triangularly glass display centered in a main through where I was locked in with various trained animals, including snakes.  Members walking by watched elicit sex acts of bestiality, women with women, mother with daughters, kids with kids, or any other unlimited perverse visual display.  

I was once brutally assaulted by Dick Cheney in the Leather Room, which was designed like a dark, black leather-lined rain berth.  As I crawled through the leather flaps covering the narrow entrance, I heard Cheney play on the word “berth/birth” as the soft blackness engulfed engulfed me.  With the small opening covered, the blinding darkness enhanced the sense of touch and provided an option of anonymity.  Cheney jokingly claimed that I “blew his cover” when I recognized his all-too familiar voice and abnormally large penis size.  

There was a room of shackles and tortures, black lights and strobes, and opium den, ritualistic sex altars, a chapel, group orgy rooms including poster beds, water beds, and “kitten” houses.  I was used as a “rag doll” in the “toy store,” and as a urinal in the “golden arches” room. 


Now you know why I put that last.
