Cashiered general tells Army he’ll retire

“Three military and defense officials in Washington said Obama may use his power as commander in chief to allow McChrystal to keep all four stars. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the personnel matter.”

More bullshit news from sources not authorized to speak!  Why the hell would Obama fire McChrystal then let him keep his 4 stars in retirement?

Stanley McChrystal, Defrocked Crusader

Cashiered general tells Army he’ll retire

WASHINGTON – Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who was fired last week as the top U.S. general in the stalemated Afghanistan war, told the Army on Monday that he will retire.

Army spokesman Col. Tom Collins said McChrystal, 55, notified the service of his plans. The general submitted formal retirement papers, but it is not clear when he will leave the service because the process usually take a few months.

In announcing McChrystal’s ouster on Wednesday, President Barack Obama praised his long Army career but said his intemperate remarks in a magazine article that appeared last week could not be abided.

Over 1000 architects and engineers have signed petition to reinvestigate 9-11 destruction

“At some level of government, at some point in time, there was an agreement not to tell the people the truth about what happened.” John Farmer, Senior Counsel to the 9-11 Commission in his book The Ground Truth (Page 4)

Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth founder, Richard Gage, AIA,   began the conference quoting Mark Twain who said, “If you don’t read the newspapers you’re uninformed. If you do read them you’re misinformed.” Gage said he hoped the assembled press would help to rectify that statement. “Today I’m quite pleased to announce that now we have more than one thousand architects and engineers signed on to the A&E911Truth petition demanding of Congress a new and truly independent, unimpeachable investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9-11,” Gage said to a cheering audience.

Numerous architects and engineers spontaneously spoke during the event about what had led to their decision to get involved in a movement that could potentially jeopardize their careers. Most agreed that it was the suspicious collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 that first caught their attention. No airplane hit the building and the fires were small. Gage said the fires were unlikely to have disabled the supporting columns all at once in order to quickly and neatly drop the skyscraper. For a hundred feet the building fell at freefall speed. 
 
There was also evidence of foreknowledge regarding World Trade Center 7’s destruction. The BBC reported live that it had fallen twenty minutes before it actually fell; viewers could see the building standing in the background.  
 
Physics professor Dr. Steven Jones along with an international team of scientists, analyzed World Trade Center dust from several sources and claims they found unmistakable traces of nanothermitic composite material–explosives that could be used to demolish the three skyscrapers. He and other architects and engineers say this explains the pools of molten metal found at ground zero weeks after the incident. Jones co-authored a peer-reviewed paper on the subject which led to his being fired from a tenured faculty position at Brigham Young University.
 
“Dr. Niels Harrit is first author, and he’s doing a wonderful job spreading information about this science. his is a peer-reviewed paper in an established scientific journal,” Jones said. “I want to emphasize that this paper has not yet been challenged in the peer-reviewed literature. In the established protocol of science, we published our findings.”

Professor Steven Jones

As Professor David Ray Griffin and others have pointed out, this paper is receiving a great deal of attention in Europe. the group hopes that it will receive more media attention in the United States as well. Griffin spoke at the conference. Although not an architect or engineer, he is considered one of the most respected members of the 9-11 Truth Movement.
 
I asked Griffin why media outlets–even alternative ones–are typically so reluctant to even look at the 9-11 evidence.
   
“They say, ‘We lose our credibility over here, then we can’t do all this other good work,’ overlooking the fact…I would say, as a rabid (laughs) member of the 9-11 Truth Movement, ‘Look this outstrips anything else you could be exposing from the last ten years–or the next ten–unless there’s another one, and if there is another one it will be partly your fault because you didn’t expose this one.”

ABC Nightline reveals its agenda, equates 9/11 truth with gun-wielding crazies

Reprinted from AE911Truth.org
Friday, 26 March 2010 11:11Shawn Hamilton

ABC Nightline’s piece on the 9-11 Truth Movement qualifies as nothing short of journalistic fraud. Instead of presenting an objective look at the surprisingly large numbers of people who are questioning the government’s official conspiracy theory involving 19 Arabs, Bury’s piece was clearly intended to equate in viewers’ minds those in the 9-11 Truth Movement” with gun-wielding crazies like the recent “Pentagon shooter” John Patrick Bedell. 

 

While this movement includes a wide variety people including thousands of architects, engineers, firefighters, academicians and scientists, Nightline seemed intent on creating an oversimplified caricature of what it disparagingly called a “viral community of true believers,” that is, people who are crazy enough to suspect the government might be hiding something when there’s no evidence to support that idea. There’s actually a lot of evidence, but TV shows like Nightline are not interested in looking at it, much less refuting it. The Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth were featured as keynote speakers at the same conference that you attended and now host over 1,000 A/E petition signers—all demanding a new investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9-11. Why did you not ask us what evidence we might have to support our call for a re-investigation? We understand that you were even re-directed by no less than three of your interviewees to speak with us.

Korey Rowe and Dylan Avery, whose documentary, “Loose Change” provided many with their first look at problems with the official account, knew what Nightline was up to. Rowe told Bury, “They’re trying already to equate us with this man (Bedell) and trying to say that the 9-11 Truth Movement is a militia, gun-toting, anti-government conspiracy [group].”

Avery told Bury, “We already know what you guys are going to do—just by the questions you asked us. It’s very clear what your agenda is.” Bury got a similar response from former FBI agent and whisteblower Coleen Rowley when he asked her the loaded question, “Do you think the American government helped kill innocent Americans?” Rowley told Bury the technique he was using reminded her of interrogation strategies she’d used while in the FBI. Rowley stated that the full truth is simply not known and that the 9-11 Commission has said so itself. Nightline then interviewed Lee Hamilton, vice-chairman of the 9-11 Commission, who stated, “We got the story basically right” in order to give the impression he was contradicting Rowley’s claim, but that was intentionally misleading. Consider what he wrote in his book Without Precedent—that the 9-11 Commission was “set up to fail” by the Bush Administration. And what John Farmer, Senior Counsel to the 9-11 Commission wrote on page four of his book, The Ground Truth: “At some level of government, at some point in time, there was an agreement not to tell the people the truth about what happened.”

Lee Hamilton told Nightline, “When they bring these theories of what happened forward, the appropriate question is, ‘What evidence do you have of that?’ And if they have evidence, then let’s examine it in the court of public opinion.” We may be on the same page with Lee Hamilton after all. This is exactly what groups like ours want to see happen. For instance, why did World Trade Center Building 7, which was never hit by an airplane, collapse suddenly, smoothly, straight down into its own footprints at free-fall acceleration?

This is a question for an enterprising, seasoned journalist like Chris Bury of Nightline to pursue—especially since there is an abundant evidence of the incendiary “thermite” in the molten iron found in the rubble of all three WTC skyscrapers. And since the explosive composite “nano-thermite” was found in all of the pulverized concrete that was laid like a blanket throughout lower Manhattan.

The massive amount of concrete powder contained evidence of the explosive “thermite”

Richard Gage, AIA, founder of AE911Truth stated, “These technical professionals are staking their licenses, degrees, and reputation not on conspiracy theories but on the scientific, forensic evidence that speaks for itself. We have no other agenda than for the public to be aware of this evidence that was eliminated from the official reports.”

Here is a partial list of the evidence demanding further investigation:
• Rapid onset of collapse of all three WTC skyscrapers.
• Sounds of explosions at the onset of collapse
• Symmetrical collapse — through the path of what should have been the greatest resistance–at nearly free-fall acceleration (i.e. the columns offered no resistance; therefore, they must have been instantly “removed”)
• WTC 7 collapsed nearly into its own footprint with the steel skeleton almost completely broken up. The Twin Towers on the other hand were extremely explosive—hurling 9-ton steel sections laterally several hundred feet. 

 
Steel beams blown laterally several hundred feet

• Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like dust clouds
• Several tons of molten metal found at the base of the buildings by credible witnesses.
• Evidence of thermite (an incendiary used to cut through steel) found in beams, slag and iron spheres in all the dust samples
• Inter-granular melting and evaporation of steel structure found and documented by FEMA in App. “C”)
• Expert corroboration from controlled demolition professionals
Foreknowledge of WTC collapse by media

The details can be found at www.AE911Truth.org and are available to anyone who wants to look at them, yet Nightline representatives chose to devote their attention to mischaracterizing members of the 9-11 Truth Movement instead of actually confronting the evidence. What is their agenda?

David Ray Griffin on Media Resistance to 9-11 issues

I recorded this interview in San Francisco at the Marine’s Memorial Club and Hotel on February 19, 2010. The occasion was the Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth press conference announcing the group had surpassed 1000 signatures from licensed building professionals calling for a new investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings. Griffin was a keynote speaker.

Richard Gage and David Ray Griffin

Shawn Hamilton (SH): “How do you account for the apparent psychological resistance even among members of the alternative media—who should know better—to even looking at the evidence?”

David Ray Griffin (DRG): “In one sense it’s obviously a big mystery because these are people who’ve been on the forefront of exposing American complicity—you know, if we talk about Howard Zinn, [Noam] Chomsky; we’re talking a long, long time here, so I never criticize these gentlemen because they’re heroes; they’ve done what they’ve done; we wouldn’t be here without them and so on. Some of the younger guys? I don’t know. Some of it is, I think, fear. I’m not talking about fear for their lives although I’ve heard of people who’ve said, ‘yeah, I’m afraid for my life,’ but I don’t think that’s the main thing. It’s more a fear of, well, job loss. That’s a big one for reporters. I talked to a reporter who had done one nine eleven story and so I said, ‘Well, are we going to get another one out of this lecture,” and he said, ‘I don’t think so. I don’t think my job would survive one more story.'”

“Then, more generally, loss of reputation. The effectiveness of this term ‘conspiracy theory,’ ‘conspiracy theorist’ and that no member of the press can be a conspiracy theorist because they’re supposed to be objective, even if objective means parroting everything the government says. In our day that’s what counts for objective. 

But if you parrot what somebody says who’s espousing what is defined as a conspiracy theory, which in the definition that I gave earlier means a theory that contradicts a theory the government has already spoken on, then that a conspiracy theory in the negative sense and very few reporters could survive in their jobs if they explicitly said that.”

SH: “I understand that for the mainstream media, but what about the alternative media? There’s a split even at KPFA. They don’t want to touch this. They don’t even want to look at it. I’m not saying believe it, just look at the evidence.”

DRG: “That’s the next step down. They’ve been so effective with this scare tactic that even to give an open microphone to a conspiracy theorist means give them credibility and that means there’s something wrong with you. So, Shawn, I’m not sure that you’re going to fit in here in our future plans. So, you know how it works; everybody in the media knows how it works: nobody has to be explicitly threatened; they just know the rules. Maybe they tried one story once and they said, ‘Whew,’ that story wouldn’t go, certainly no story about nine eleven is going to go, so they learn not to do it.”

“A third factor is, and some have explicitly said this, ‘we in the left-leaning press spent years building up our credibility, and now you crazy nine eleven conspiracy theorists are destroying our credibility. Well, first of all, a big majority of the 9-11 movement is not on the left; they’re on the right. They’re libertarians and Republicans. Both Steven Jones and Richard Gage were lifelong Republicans, but this is the answer they give. I don’t think that’s just an excuse; I think they really do believe that [we threaten] things they’ve worked for.”

“So from their point of view, it doesn’t matter whether what we’re saying is true or false; it’s not expedient. It’s not helpful to what they consider the larger cause of exposing other high crimes and misdemeanors. So they say, well, we lose our credibility here, then we can’t do all this other good work, overlooking the fact—I would say as a rabid member of the nine eleven truth movement, ‘Look, this is the big story. This outstrips anything you could possibly be exposing from the last ten years or in the next ten—probably unless we have another one, and if we do have another one it will be partly your fault because you didn’t help expose this one.”

“So I just think that’s a very poor answer, and for some people to say—and I regret that Howard Zinn, who showed great courage opposing [Noam] Chomsky on this who would not read my book even though they’re both good friends of Richard Falk. Richard Falk wrote to Chomsky and he said, ‘I think you should read this manuscript. My friend David Griffin has been a great admirer of yours; he’s built on your work. He would love to have a blurb from you. Chomsky wrote back and said Dick, ‘No, I will not read your friend Griffin’s book.’ Howard Zinn read it. He wrote a blurb, and many people said, ‘I never would have read your book except for the blurb by Howard Zinn despite the fact that he got flack from many friends on the left for writing that very innocuous blurb—he was not endorsing my ideas, he was just saying this is a serious book. Even though he got a lot of flack for that, he came back and endorsed a second book, so I praise Howard Zinn for the courage he showed even though—and I regret the fact that towards the end of his life he said,   ‘Well, nine eleven isn’t too important. It doesn’t matter too much what the truth is. I just think he made a terrible misjudgment in that.”

A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File

 SKELETON KEY TO THE GEMSTONE FILE

 

The Gemstone File was written in many segments over a period of years by an American man named Bruce Roberts. Parts of the file were released to certain Americans beginning in 1969. The number of handwritten pages is well over a thousand, of which I have read about 400. I have been able to verify some of the statements made in the file, but do not have the research facilities to verify the entire story. Perhaps others can help.

Since the scope of the work is so large, and the events described so complex and interlocking, it may be more easily understood with this skeleton outline of the Gemstone thesis. Individual papers can then be read with greater comprehension.

1932: Onassis, a Greek drug pusher and ship owner who made his first million selling “Turkish tobacco”(opium) in Argentina, worked out a profitable deal with Joseph Kennedy, Eugene Meyer and Meyer Lansky: Onassis was to ship booze direct into Boston for Joseph Kennedy. Also involved was a heroin deal with Franklin and Elliott Roosevelt.

1934: Onassis, Rockefeller and the Seven Sisters (major oil companies) signed an agreement, outlined in an oil cartel memo: Fuck the Arabs out of their oil, ship it on Onassis’ ships; Rockefeller and the Seven Sisters to get rich. All this was done.

Roberts, studying journalism and physics at the University of Wisconsin, learned these things via personal contacts. His special interest was in crystallography–and the creation of synthetic rubies, the original Gemstone experiment.

1936-1940: Eugene Meyer buys the “Washington Post” to get control of news media; other Mafia buy other papers, broadcasting, TV, etc. News censorship of all major news media goes into effect.

1941-1945: World War II: Very profitable for Onassis, Rockefellers, Kennedys, Roosevelts, I.G. Farben, etc., etc. Onassis, selling without losing a single ship or man.

1949: Onassis buys U.S. War surplus “Liberty ships” in questionable (illegal) purchase. Lawyer Burke Marshall helps him.

1956: Howard Hughes, Texas millionaire, is meanwhile buying his way toward control of the U.S. electoral process–with a view toward his own personal gain. He buys senators, governors, etc. He finally buys his last politician: newly-elected V.P. Nixon, via a quarter-million dollar nonrepayable loan to Nixon’s brother, Donald.

Early 1957: V.P. Nixon repays the favor by having IRS/Treasury grant tax-free status (refused twice before) to “Hughes Medical Foundation”, sole owner of Hughes Aircraft, creating a tax-free, nonaccountable money funnel or laundry for whatever Hughes wanted to do. U.S. Government also shelved anti-trust suits against Hughes’s TWA, etc.

March 1957: Onassis carries out a carefully planned event: he has Hughes kidnapped from his bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, using Hughes’ own men (Chester Davis, born Cesare in Sicily, et al). Hughes’ men either quit, get fired or stay on in the new Onassis organization. A few days later, Mayor Cannon of Nevada (now Senator Cannon) arranges a fake “marriage” to Jean Peters, to explain Hughes’ sudden loss of interest in chasing movie stars. Hughes, battered and brain-damaged in the scuffle, is taken to the Emerald Isle Hotel in the Bahamas, where the entire top floor has been rented for the “Hughes party”. There he is shot full of heroin for 30 days and later dragged off to a cell on Onassis’ island, Skorpios. Onassis now has a much larger power base in the U.S. (the Hughes empire), as well as control over V.P. Nixon and other Hughes-purchased politicians. L. Wayne Rector, “Hughes” double since 1955, becomes “Hughes”.

September 1957: Onassis calls the Appalachin meeting to announce to U.S. Mafia heads his grab of Hughes, and his adoption of Hughes’ game plan for acquiring power: buying U.S senators, congressmen, governors, judges, en masse to take control “legally” of the U.S. Government. Onassis’ radio message to Appalachin from a remote Pennsylvania farmhouse intercepted (reluctantly) by FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover on the basis of a tip-off from some Army Intelligence guys who weren’t in on the plan.

Also in 1957: Joseph Kennedy takes John F. and Jackie to see Onassis on his yacht, introduce John, and remind Onassis of an old Mafia promise: the presidency for a Kennedy. Onassis agrees.

1958: Hordes of Mafia-selected, purchased and supported “grass roots” candidates sweep into office.

1959: Castro takes over Cuba from dictator Battista, thereby destroying cozy and lucrative Mafia gambling empire run for Onassis by Meyer Lansky. Castro scoops up $8 million in Mafia casino receipts. Onassis is furious. V.P. Nixon becomes operations chief for CIA-planned Bay of Pigs invasion using CIA Hunt, McCord, etc., and Cuban ex-Battista strong-arm cops “Cuban freedom fighters”) Martinez, Gonzalez, etc., as well as winners like Frank Sturgis (Fiorini).

1959: Stirring election battle between Kennedy and Nixon. Either way, Onassis wins, since he has control over both candidates.

1960: JFK elected. American people happy. Rose Kennedy happy. Onassis happy. Mafia ecstatic.

Roberts brings his synthetic rubies–the original “Gemstones”–to Hughes Aircraft in Los Angeles. They steal his rubies–the basis for laser beam research, laser bombs, etc.–because of the optical quality of the rubies. One of the eleven possible sources for one of the ingredients involved in the Gemstone experiment was the Golden Triangle area. Roberts was married to the daughter of the former French consulate in Indochina. In that area, Onassis’ involvement in the Golden Triangle dope trade was no secret. Roberts’ investigation revealed the Onassis-Hughes connection, kidnap and switch.

“Gemstones” (synthetic rubies and sapphires) with accompanying histories (Gemstone papers) were sold or given away to foreign consular officials, in return for information. A world-wide intelligence activities of many countries. This intelligence network is the source for much of the information in the Gemstone File.

January 1961: Joseph Kennedy had a stroke, ending his control over John and Bobby. The boys decided to rebel against Onassis’ control. Why? Inter-Mafia struggle? Perhaps a dim hope of restoring this country to its mythical integrity?

They began committing Mafia-no-no’s: Arrested Wally Bird, owner of Air Thailand, who had been shipping Onassis’ heroin out of the Golden Triangle (Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam), under contract with the CIA (Air Opium); arrested Teamster Mafia Jimmy Hoffa, and put him in jail. Declared the $73 million in forged “Hughes” land liens, deposited with S.F.’s Bank of America as “security” for the TWA judgment against Hughes, to be what they are: forgeries.

April 1961: CIA Bay of Pigs fiasco. Hunt, McCord, CIA, Battista’s’ Cubans and Mafia angry about JFK’s lack of enthusiasm. Mafia Onassis has his U.S. right-hand man, “Hughes’ top aide”–former FBI and CIA Robert Maheu (nicknamed “IBM” for Iron Bob Maheu)–hire and train a Mafia assassination team to get Castro. The team of a dozen or so includes John Roselli and Jimmy (the Weasel) Frattiano, expert Mafia hitmen, assisted by CIA Hunt and McCord and others. This was reported recently by Jack Anderson, who gets a lot of his “tips” from his friend Frank (Fiorini) Sturgis–also on the Castro assassination team. The team tries five times to kill Castro with everything from long-range rifles to apple pie with sodium morphate in it. Castro survives.

1963: Members of the Castro assassination team arrested at Lake Pontchartrain, La., by Bobby Kennedy’s Justice boys. Angered, Onassis stops trying to kill Castro. He changes targets and goes for the head: JFK, who according to Onassis, “welches” on a Mafia deal.

JFK sets up “Group of 40” to fight Onassis.

August 1963: Two murders had to occur before the murder of JFK, of people who would understand the situation and might squawk:

Senator Estes Kefauver, whose Crime Commission investigations had uncovered the 1932 deal between Onassis, Kennedy, Eugene Meyer, Lansky, Roosevelt, et al. Kefauver planned a speech on the Senate floor denouncing Mafia operations. Instead, he ate a piece of apple pie laced with sodium morphate (used in rat poison), and had a sodium morphate-induced “heart attack” on the Senate floor.

Phillip Graham, editor of the “Washington Post.” Phillip had married Katherine Meyer, Eugene Meyer’s daughter, who had inherited the Washington Post and allied media empire. Graham put together the Kennedy-Johnson ticket, and was Kennedy’s friend in the struggle with Onassis. According to Gemstone, Katherine Meyer Graham bribed some psychiatrists to certify that Phil was insane. He was allowed out of the nuthouse for the weekend, and died of a shotgun wound in the head, in the Graham home in Washington. Death ruled “suicide”.

November 1, 1963: The hit on JFK was supposed to take place in true Mafia style: a triple execution, together with Diem and Nhu in Vietnam. Diem and Nhu got theirs, as scheduled. Onassis had invited Jackie for a cruise on the Cristina, where she was when JFK got tipped off that Big “0” planned to wipe him out. JFK called Jackie on the yacht, from the White House, hysterical: “Get off that yacht, if you have to swim,” and cancelled his appearance at a football stadium in Chicago, where the CIA-Mafia assassination team was poised for the kill. Jackie stayed on board, descended the gangplank a few days later on Onassis’ arm in Turkey, to impress the Turkish Bey, Mustafa. Madame Nhu, in the United States, bitterly remarked, “Whatever has happened in Vietnam will see its counterpart in the United States.”

One of the assassination team (Tom Vallee, a double for Oswald) was picked up in Chicago, with a rifle, and quickly released by the police.

Three weeks later the Mafia’s alternate and carefully arranged execution plan went into effect: JFK was assassinated at Dallas. A witness, who recognized pictures of some of the people arrested in Dealy Plaza as having been in Chicago three weeks earlier, told Black Panthers Hampton and Clark.

The JFK Murder: Onassis’ “Hughes” man, Robert Maheu, reassigned the Mafia-CIA Castro assassination team to the murder of JFK, adding Eugene Brading, a third Mafia hitman from the Denver Mafia Smaldones “family”. Two months earlier, Brading, on parole after a series of crimes, applied for a new driver’s license, explaining to the California DMV that he had decided to change his name–to “Jim Braden.” Brading got his California parole officer’s permission for two trips to Dallas in November on “oil business”–the first time, to look things over, and the second time, when JFK was scheduled for his Dallas trip.

Lee Harvey Oswald, CIA, with carefully planted links to both the ultra right and to the Communists, was designated as the patsy. He was supposed to shoot at Governor Connally, and he did.

Each of the four shooters–Oswald, Brading, Frattiano and Roselli–had a timer and a back-up man. Back-up men were supposed to pick up the spent shells, and get rid of the guns. Timers would give the signal to shoot. Hunt and McCord were there to help. Sturgis was in Miami.

Frattiano shot from a second-story window in the Dal-Tex building, across the street from the Texas School Book Depository. He apparently used a handgun; he is an excellent shot with a pistol. Frattiano hit Kennedy twice, in the back and in the head. Frattiano and his back-up man were “arrested”, driven away from the Dal-Tex building in a police car, and released (without being booked). (The Dallas Police office is in the Dal-Tex building.)

Roselli shot Kennedy once, hitting the right side of his head and blowing his brains out with a rifle, from behind a fence in the grassy knoll area. Roselli and his timer went down a manhole behind the fence and followed the sewer line away from Dealey Plaza.

The third point of the triangulated ambush was supplied by Eugene Brading, shooting from Kennedy’s left, from a small pagoda at Dealey Plaza across the street from the grassy knoll. Brading missed, because Roselli’s and Frattiano’s shots had just hit Kennedy in the head from the right and the rear nearly simultaneously.) Brading’s shot hit the curb and ricocheted off. Brading was photographed on the scene, stuffing his gun under his coat. He wore a big leather hat, its hatband marked with large, conspicuous X’s. (Police had been instructed to let anyone with an X-marked hatband through the police lines; some may have been told they were Secret Service.) After his shot, Brading ditched his gun with his back-up man and walked up the street toward the Dal-Tex building. Roger Craig, a deputy sheriff, rushed up to Brading, assuming he was “Secret Service,” and told him he had just seen a man come out of the Book Depository and who jumped into a station wagon. Brading was uninterested. Brading walked into the Dal-Tex Building to “make a phone call.” There he was arrested by another deputy sheriff, showed his “Jim Braden” driver’s license, and was quickly released–without being booked.

Oswald shot Connally twice from the Texas School Book Depository. He split from the front door. His back-up man was supposed to take the rifle out of the building (or so Oswald thought); instead, he “hid” it behind some boxes, where it would be found later.

Three men dressed as “tramps” picked up the spent shells from Dealey Plaza. One was Howard Hunt. Then they drifted over to an empty boxcar sitting on the railway spur behind the grassy knoll area, and waited. A Dallas police officer ordered two Dallas cops to “go over to the boxcar and pick up the tramps”. The three “tramps” paraded around Dealey Plaza to the Police Department, in the Dal-Tex Building. They were held there until the alarm went out to pick up Oswald; then they were released, without being booked. In all, ten men were arrested immediately after the shooting; all were released soon after; none were booked; not a word about their existence is mentioned in the Warren Report.

Regarding Lee Harvey Oswald: Officer Tippitt was dispatched in his police radio car to the Oak Cliff Section, where Oswald had rented a room. Tippitt may have met Oswald on the street. He may have been supposed to kill Oswald, but something went wrong. Tippitt was shot, by two men, using two revolvers. The “witness” Domingo Benavides, who used Tippitt’s police car radio to report “We’ve had a shooting here,” may have been one of the men who shot him. (A “Domingo Benavides” appears in connection with the Martin Luther King shooting also.)

Oswald went to the movies. A “shoe store manager” told the theater cashier that a suspicious-looking man had sneaked in without paying. Fifteen assorted cops and FBI charged out to the movie theater to look for the guy who had sneaked in.

Oswald had a pistol that wouldn’t fire. It may have been anticipated that the police would shoot the “cop-killer” for “resisting arrest”. But since that didn’t happen, the Dallas police brought Oswald out for small-time Mafia Jack Ruby to kill two days later.

Brading stayed at the Teamster-Mafia-Hoffa-financed “Cabana Motel” in Dallas. Ruby had gone to the Cabana the night before the murder, says the Warren Report.

 

The rest, as they say, is history. Onassis was so confident of his control over police, media, FBI, CIA, Secret Service and the U.S. judicial system that he had JFK murdered before the eyes of the nation; then systematically bought off, killed off or frightened off all witnesses, and had the evidence destroyed; then put a 75-year seal of secrecy over the entire matter. Cover-up participants included (among many): Gerald Ford, Leon Jaworski of the CIA-front Anderson Foundation, representing Texas before the Commission to see that the fair name of Texas was not besmirched by the investigation, CIA-Dallas Chief John McCone; his assistant, Richard Helms; and a passel of police, FBI, news media, etc.

 

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

 

Johnny Roselli received part of his pay-off for the head shot on JFK in the form of a $250,000 “finder’s fee” for bringing “Hughes” (Onassis) to Las Vegas in 1967.

 

Jimmy Frattiano’s pay-off included $109,000 in “nonrepayable loans” from the S.F. National Bank (President: Joe Alioto). Credit authorization for the series of loans, from 1964 to 1965, came from Joe Alioto and a high Teamster official. Dun and Bradstreet noted this transaction in amazement, listing the loans in their 1964-1965 monthly reports, and wondering how Frattiano could obtain so much “credit”, as his only known title (listed in D&B) was “Mafia Executioner”. Frattiano went around for years bragging about it: “Hi there, I’m Jimmy Frattiano, Mafia Executioner…” A bank V.P. told the whole story to the California Crime Commission, where Al Harris heard it, and it was hidden in a file folder there. Al Harris, who later shot off his mouth a little too much, “heart attacked”.

 

When last seen (March 1975), Frattiano was testifying before a S.F. Grand Jury in regard to his participation, with East Coast Mafia Tony Romano, in the Sunol Golf Course swindle (which cost S.F. somewhere between $100,000 and $500,000), with the active help of Mayor Joe Alioto.

 

In between, Frattiano used his $109,000 in “nonrepayable loans” to start a trucking company in the Imperial Valley, where he engaged in a lot more swindling–involving U.S. Government construction contracts. As one California Crime Commission member explained, “The Mafia is doing business directly with the U.S. Government now.”

 

Brading was questioned by the FBI two months after his arrest–and released at Dallas–as part of the Warren Commission’s determination to “leave no stone unturned” in its quest for the truth about the JFK assassination. In spite of the fact that Brading was a known criminal with an arrest record dating back about twenty years, the FBI reported that Brading knew nothing whatsoever about the assassination.

 

Brading became a charter member of the La Costa Country Club, Mafia heaven down near San Clemente. He also became a runner for the skim money from the Onassis-“Hughes” Las Vegas casinos to Onassis’s Swiss bank account.

 

Gerald Ford, of the Warren Commission, went on to become president by appointment of Nixon, then in danger of even further and more serious exposure–from which position of trust Ford pardoned Nixon one month later, for “any and all crimes he may have committed.” That covers quite a lot, but Ford is good at covering things up.

 

McCone, the head of CIA-Dallas, went on to become a member of Board of the ITT Board of Directors–sitting right next to Francis L. Dale, the head of CREEP (Committee to Re-elect the President).

 

Richard Helms, McCone’s assistant at Dallas, ultimately was rewarded with the post of CIA Director. Leon Jaworski, CIA attorney, became Watergate prosecutor, replacing Cox, who was getting too warm. Jaworski turned in a sterling performance in our “government-as-theatre”–the conscientious investigator who “undercovered” not a bit more than he had to–and managed to steer everybody away from the underlying truth.

 

Dr. “Red” Duke, the man who dug two bullets out of Connally and saved his life, was shipped off to a hospital in Afghanistan by a grateful CIA.

 

Jim Garrison, New Orleans D.A. who tried to get Eugene Brading out of L.A.(but used one of Brading’s other aliases, Eugene Bradley, by mistake), had his witnesses shot out from under him, and was framed on charges of bribery and extortion.

 

FBI officers “confiscated” photos of Brading taken on the scene. Et cetera.

 

After JFK’s death, Onassis quickly established control over Lyndon Johnson through fear. On the trip back to Washington, Johnson was warned by radio, relayed from an air force base: “There was no conspiracy. Oswald was a lone nut assassin: Got it, Lyndon? Otherwise, Air Force 1 might have an unfortunate accident on the flight back to Washington.”

 

Onassis filled all important government posts with his own men. All government agencies became means to accomplish an end: rifle the American  treasury, steal as much as possible, keep the people confused and disorganized and leaderless; pursue world domination. JFK’s original “Group of 40” was turned over to Rockefeller and his man, Kissinger, so that they could more effectively fuck over South America. (Onassis was one of the first to console Jackie when she got back from Dallas with JFK’s body.) Silva, a S.F. private detective hired by Angelina Alioto to get the goods on philandering Joe, followed Joe Alioto to Vacaville, to the Nut Tree Restaurant, where Joe held a private meeting with other Mafioso to arrange the details of the JFK-assassination pay-off to Frattiano.

 

1967: Onassis has always enjoyed the fast piles of money to be made gambling (in Monaco in the 50s, and in Cuba under Battista). Onassis took over Las Vegas in 1967, via the “Hughes” cover. U.S. Government officials explained that it was all right because “at least Hughes isn’t the Mafia”. (Ha, ha.)

 

Note: L. Wayne Rector was hired around 1955 by the Carl Byoir P.R. agency (Hughes’ L.A. PR firm) to act as Hughes’ double. In 1957, when Onassis grabbed Hughes, Rector continued to act as his stand-in. Rector was the Hughes surrogate in Las Vegas. Robert Maheu actually ran the show; Maheu got his orders from Onassis. The six “nursemaids” called the “Mormon Mafia”, kept Rector sealed off from prying eyes.

 

June 17, 1968: Bobby Kennedy knew who killed his brother; he wrote about it in his unpublished book, The Enemy Within. When he foolishly tried to run for President, Onassis had him offed, using a sophisticated new technique: hypnotized Sirhan Sirhan shooting from the front, “security guard” (from Lockheed Aircraft) Thane Cesar shooting from two or three inches away from Bobby’s head–from the rear. Sirhan’s shots all missed. Cesar’s couldn’t possibly miss. Evelle Younger, then the L.A. D.A., covered it all up, including the squawks of L.A. Coroner, Thomas Noguchi. Younger was rewarded with the post of California Attorney General later. His son, Eric Younger, got a second-generation Mafia reward: a judgeship at 30 (See Ted Charach; L.A. author and director, The Second Gun, a documentary film on the RFK murder, bought and suppressed by Warner Brother, for more details).

 

After Bobby’s death, Teddy knew who did it. He ran to Onassis afraid for his life, and swore eternal obedience. In return, Onassis granted him his life and said he could be President, too, just like his big brother, if he would just behave himself and follow orders.

 

September 16, 1968: Hit-and-run accident on Roberts’ car; parked in front of the Russian consulate in S.F.–who routinely take pictures of everything that goes on in front of the consulate. Their photos showed the license plate of the hit-and-run car: UKT 264, on a blue Cadillac belonging to Mia Angela Alioto, Joe’s daughter, being driven by Tom Alioto, Joe’s son–whose driving license had been revoked. His license, and the car’s license, were both fraudulent. To cover up the hit-and-run circumstances, S.F. MPs from the Presidio quickly staged a few more hit-and-runs on the same corner–all duly filmed by the Russians. Kathryn Hollister, the Alioto family nurse, was “persuaded” to take the rap for the hit-and-run. Roberts threatened to spill the whole story–in court–with photos.

 

Next evening, Brading and Frattiano showed up in the Black Magic Bar–Brading wearing his X-marked hat from Dallas–to see whether Roberts recognized it, how much he knew, etc. An S.F. MP from the Presidio piped up from the end of the bar: “I heard they let everyone with an X-marked hatband through the police lines at Dallas.”

 

Cover-up support for Alioto in the hit-and-run was complete.

 

Mafia Joe Alioto had Presidential ambitions, shored up by his participation in the Dallas pay-off. Everyone who helped kill JFK got a piece of the U.S. pie. But J. Edgar Hoover, FBI head, blew his cover by releasing some of the raw FBI files on Alioto at the Democratic National Convention. Joe was out of the running for V.P. and Humphrey had to settle for Muskie. Humphrey planned to come to S.F. for a final pro-election rally, sparked by Joe Alioto; Roberts threatened to blow the hit-run story plus its Mafia ramifications open if Humphrey came to S.F.; Humphrey didn’t come; Humphrey lost San Francisco, California, and the election.

 

October 1968: Jackie Kennedy was now “free” to marry Onassis. An old Mafia rule: If someone welches on a deal, kill him, and take his gun and his girl (in this case, Jackie and the Pentagon).

 

July 1969: Mary Jo Kopechne, devoted JFK girl, and later one of Bobby’s trusted aides, was in charge of packing up his files after his assassination in L.A. She read too much–learned about the Kennedy Mafia involvement, and other things. She said to friends: This isn’t Camelot, this is murder. She was an idealistic American Catholic. She didn’t like murdering hypocrites. She died trying to get off Chappaquiddick Island, where she had overheard (along with everyone else in the cottage) Teddy Kennedy’s end of the D.H. Lawrence cottage telephone calls from John Tunney, and to Joe Alioto, and Democratic bigwigs Swig, Shorenstein, Schumann and Bechtel. Teddy’s good friend John Tunney called to complain that Alioto’s friend Cyril Magnin and others had tried to bribe Jess Unruh to switch from the Governor’s race to run for the Senate–for the seat John Tunney wanted–so that Alioto would have an easier run for Governor. Teddy called Alioto who told him to go to hell; then Teddy called the rest to arrange for yet another Mafia murder. Mary Jo, up to there with Mafia shit, ran screaming out of the cottage on her way to Nader. Drunken Teddy offered to drive her to the ferry. Trying to get away from curious Sheriff Look, Teddy sped off toward the Bridge, busted Mary Jo’s nose when she tried to grab his arm from the back seat, and bailed out of the car as it went off the bridge. Mary Jo, with a busted nose, breathed in an air bubble in the car for more than two hours, waiting for help, while Teddy, assuming she was dead, ran to set up an alibi. Mary Jo finally suffocated in the air bubble, diluted with carbon dioxide from her exhalations. It took her 2 hours and 37 minutes to suffocate, while Teddy had Joseph Kennedy, III, steal a boat and ferry him across to Edgartown. Mary Jo was still pounding on the upturned floorboards of Teddy’s car while Teddy called Jackie and Onassis on the Cristina. Teddy also called Katherine Meyer Graham, lawyers, Cardinal Cushing to help. The next morning, the first person Teddy tried to call after deciding he’d have to take the rap himself was Lawyer Burke Marshall, Onassis’ friend in the U.S. Liberty Ships deal back in the 40s; and, also, the designated custodian for JFK’s brains after Dallas (the brains have since disappeared).

 

Cover-up of the Chappaquiddick murder required the help of: Massachusetts Highway Patrol, which “confiscated” the plates from Teddy’s car after it was fished out of the pond; the Massachusetts Legislature, which changed a 150-year-old law requiring an autopsy (which would have revealed the suffocation and broken nose); Coroner Mills, who let Kennedy’s aide, K. Dun Gifford, supply him with a death certificate, already prepared, for Mills’ signature, listing cause of death as drowning; Police Chief Arenas; Cardinal Cushing’s priests, who appeared before the Kopechnes “direct from God” with personal instructions from Him that Mary Jo was not to be disturbed; a Pennsylvania mortuary where Mary Jo’s broken nose was patched up; East and West Coast phone companies, which clamped “maximum security” on the records of calls to and from the cottage.(S.F. Police Chief Cahill was reassigned to a new job: Security Chief for Pacific Telephone); the U.S. Senate, who never said a word about Teddy’s plug-in phone (required equipment); the judge who presided over the mock hearing; James Reston, editor of Martha’s Vineyard’s only newspaper, who never heard a word about Teddy’s phone at the cottage, though residents called in to tell the newspaper, the New York Times, Washington Post, etc., etc.

 

John Tunney’s sister, Joan, heard her brother’s end of the phone call made from her house in Tiburon, to the Chappaquiddick cottage. The next, day, after Mary Jo died, Joan ran away to Norway, where she was kidnapped by Mafia hoods Mari and Adamo. They locked her up in a Marseilles heroin factory for 60 days, where the heroin fumes turned her into a junkie (no needle marks); then they turned her loose outside the factory. Joan’s husband complained, so she chopped his head off with an ax, and was subsequently locked up in a nuthouse belonging to the Marquess of Blandford, then Tina Livanos Onassis’ husband.

 

Mari and Adamo got pressed into scrap metal in a New Jersey auto yard.

 

In the panic of trying to cover up Teddy’s guilt at Chappaquiddick, many things came unglued. The JFK murder threatened to creep out of the woodwork again; Black Panthers Hampton and Clark were murdered (the Chicago cops fired over Attorney Charles Garry’s head), because of what they knew about the JFK murder squad’s presence at Chicago on November 1, 1963.

 

September 1969: “Gemstones”, with histories, had been released around the globe for several years. In 1969, Roberts gave a Gemstone, with history, to Mack, head of California CREEP, for Nixon, with the proposition: the Presidency, in return for wiping out the Mafia. The “history” included Teddy’s phone calls to, and from, the Lawrence cottage on Chappaquiddick –billed to Teddy’s home phone in Hyannisport. Nixon, being Mafia himself, wasn’t interested; but kept the information to use on Teddy whenever it seemed advantageous.

 

May 1, 1970: Charlotte Ford Niarchos called her ex-husband, Stavros, worried about the Ford Foundation’s involvement in the Chappaquiddick cover-up. Eugenie Livanos Niarchos, in bed with her husband, overheard the conversation. Stavros was forced to beat her to death; he ruptured her spleen and broke the cartilage in her throat. Cause of death was listed as “overdose of barbiturates”, though autopsy showed these injuries.

 

End of 1970: Howard Hughes’ presence on earth was no longer required. His handwriting could be duplicated by a computer. His biography–all the known facts about his life–had been compiled and a computerized biography issued to top Hughes executives. His double, Rector, had been doing “Hughes” for years. And Hughes was ill.

 

Clifford Irving, author of Hoax, about an art forger, became interested in “Hughes”. Living on Ibiza, he heard the Mediterranean gossip that “Hughes” was a hoax, too. He went to “Hughes” so-called “Mormon Mafia”, the six “nursemaids”, for information. One of them, Merryman, perhaps tired of the game, gave Irving the computerized Hughes biography, and from it Irving wrote his “autobiography”.

 

Hughes’ death was expected shortly. Preparations were being made so that it would not interfere with the orderly continuation of his empire.

 

Irving wrote his book, and the publishers announced someone had given Irving the information. He thought it was Maheu, and fired him in November 1970. On Thanksgiving Eve, 1970, in the middle of the night, “Hughes” (Rector) made a well-publicized “secret departure” from Las Vegas to the Bahamas.

 

December 1970: Onassis discovered his mistake–and had Merryman killed.

 

Robert Maheu, accidentally deprived of his half-million dollars annual salary, sued “Hughes” for millions–mentioning “Hughes” game plan for the purchase of presidents, governors, senators, judges, etc. Onassis paid off–cheap at the price–to maintain his custodianship of “American democracy” and the “free world”–and keep from hanging for multiple murders.

 

The “Hughes” Mormon Mafia party, plus Rector, fled around the world–from the Bahamas where they murdered an uncooperative Governor and Police Chief, to Nicaragua, where they shot the U.S. Ambassador between the eyes for noticing that there wasn’t really any Hughes; and thence to Canada, where Mormon Mafia nursemaid Eckersley[1] looted a goodly sum in a swindle of the Canadian Stock Exchange; and on to London, to Rothschild’s Inn of the Park.

 

April 18, 1971: Howard Hughes, a human vegetable as the result of serious brain damage during his 1957 hustle, plus fourteen years of heroin, grew sicker and sicker. A final overdose of heroin did him in. His coffin was lowered into the sea from a rocky headland off the coast of Skorpios. Present at the funeral were: Jackie Kennedy Onassis; Teddy Kennedy; Francis L. Dale, Director of CREEP, and on the ITT Board of Directors; Tom Pappas, also CREEP; and a South Vietnamese cardinal named Thuc. Onassis allowed some pictures to be taken from a distance; he himself did not appear. The pictures were published in Midnight, a Canadian tabloid.

 

Albanian frogmen, tipped off, were waiting under the water. They seized the coffin and took the corpse off to Yugoslavia, thence to China and Russia, and then perhaps to Boston, in a foot locker. The corpse’s dental work was compared to Hughes’ very own dental records, and they matched. News of Hughes’ death, the U.S. take-over by Onassis, and the facts surrounding the murders of JFK, RFK, Martin Luther King, Mary Jo Kopechne, and many more, and the subsequent cover-ups (involving still more murders) has been circulating around the globe for several years. Any country with this information can blackmail the U.S. Mafia government, which has no choice but to pay up. The alternative: be exposed as a bunch of treasonous murderers. This is why China-hating, red-baiting Nixon was forced to “recognize” China (which he now claims as his greatest accomplishment): and why the U.S.S.R. walks off with such good deals in U.S. loans, grains, and whatever else it wants. All they have to do is mention those magic words “Hughes”, JFK, RFK, MLK, Mary Jo–words to conjure by–and once leaked can’t be unleaked. The only way to end the dilemma is through a nuclear war, and that wouldn’t be one-sided. The other way would be to throw the Mafia out of the United States. Starting at the top–with Ford, Rockefeller and Kissinger. Super-patriots, please note: No one–not all the radicals and subversives hounded by U.S. domestic intelligence put together–has done one fraction of the damage done to U.S. economy, morality, power and prestige by the thieves at the top.

 

On the day Hughes was buried, Clifford Irving’s wife presented a publisher’s check made out to “H. Hughes” to Onassis’ Swiss bank for payment. Onassis paid off–cheap at the price.

 

“Gemstone” papers rolling around the world, here and abroad, kept the situation hot. Everyone was nervous. Rockefeller gave Kissinger $50,000 for Carlson and Brisson to write their “exposé”, “The Alioto Mafia Web” for Look. Their mission: Find out everything that was public record about Alioto’s connection with the JFK murder (his pay-offs to Frattiano, listed in D&B)–and explain it away–in any way that didn’t lead back to Dallas. The idea was to get Alioto to quietly go away, but still keep the lid on everything.

 

May 1971: Tina Livanos Onassis Blandford married Stavros Niarchos, her former brother-in-law–until he killed her sister, Eugenie.

 

May 1971: “Folk hero” Daniel Ellsberg, a well-known hawk from the Rand Corp., who had designed the missile ring around the “Iron Curtain” countries (how many missiles to aim at which cities), was told to release the faked-up “Pentagon Papers” to help distract people from Hughes, JFK, RFK, MLK, etc. The papers were carefully designed by Ellsberg and his boss, Rand Chief and now World Bank Chief Bob (“Body Count”) McNamara, to make the Vietnamese War look like “just one of those incredibly dumb mistakes”. This helped to cover up the real purposes of the war: continued control, for Onassis and his friends, of the Golden Triangle dope trade (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia), and for Onassis and the oil people of Eastern oil sources. To say nothing of control over huge federal sums, which could be siphoned off in profitable arms contracts, or conveniently “disappear” in the war effort.

 

McNamara’s World Bank–handing out American money to “starving nations”–actually set up huge private bank accounts for various dictators in Onassis controlled Swiss banks. The money could be used as needed to support and extend mafia operations. Example: $8 billion in World Bank funds for “starving Ethiopians” wound up in Emperor Haile Selassie’s personal Swiss bank accounts. This would make him the richest individual in the world–but other dictators have Swiss accounts, too. Maybe even larger. The money drained from America and other captive Mafia nations to feed a greed that can never be satisfied.

 

(Rand Corp., one of our major “think tanks”, has another goody in store for the public: “Project Star”, Rand’s cover-up fallback version of the JFK murder–held in reserve should public restlessness over the Warren Commission Report cover-up ever threaten to get out of hand. That ought to confuse the people for at least another twelve years, and by that time, most of us will be dead anyway….)

 

Note in passing: The dope trade routes are: Golden Triangle to Taiwan to San Francisco. Heroin coming from the Golden Triangle was sometimes smuggled into S.F. in the bodies of American G.I.s who died in battle in Vietnam. One body can hold up to 40 pounds of heroin, crammed in where the guts would be.

 

Some dope gets pressed into dinner plates, and painted with pretty patterns. One dope bust in S.F. alone yielded $6 billion in heroin “china plates”–the largest dope bust in history–quickly and completely hushed up by the S.F. press Mafia. The dope sat in the S.F.P.D. for a while then was removed by FBI men, and probably sent on its way–to American veins. All this dope processing and shipping is controlled and supervised by the Mafia, for the Mafia. Dope arrests and murders are aimed at independent pushers and maverick peddlers and smugglers who are competing with or holding out on, the Mafia. While Nixon was conducting his noisy campaign against dope smuggling across the Mexican border, his dope officer in charge of protecting the Mafia dope trade was E. Howard Hunt.

 

Lots of heroin gets processed in a Pepsi Cola factory in Laos. So far it hasn’t produced a single bottle of Pepsi Cola.

 

Some dope gets processed in heroin factories in Marseilles. (See The French Connection.)

 

Still more dope comes from South America–cocaine, and now heroin. U.S. said went to build a highway across Paraguay (Uruguay?). Useless for the natives, who have no cars; they use it for sunbathing during the day. All night, airplanes loaded with cocaine take off from the, longest landing strip in the world–financed by U.S. tax money for the benefit of internal Mafia dope pushers.

 

And then there is opium from Turkey–morphine. The starting point of Onassis’ fortune.

 

In case one is still wondering whether the Mafia can actually get away with such things, consider the benefits derived from controlling the stock market, the courts, the police, etc., in one swindle alone: the 19 acquisition by “Hughes” of “Air West”, which involved swindling Air West stockholders of $45 million. Recently indicted for this swindle by the SEC (in a civil suit) were “Howard Hughes” and Jimmy (The Greek) Snyder, “not usually associated with the Hughes crowd”, and others.

 

June 1971: New York Times began publishing the Pentagon Papers, Rand Corp.’s prepared cover—up of the real reasons for the Vietnamese War.

 

Nixon had gotten a copy of the first Gemstone papers circulated in the U.S. back in 1969. He was now wondering how much information Democratic Chairman Larry O’Brien had about Hughes, Onassis, et al JFK, RFK, et al and, more specifically, how much of the dirt the Democrats planned to use.

 

Nixon set up the “plumbers’ unit” to “stop security leaks, investigate other security matters”. Ehrlichman, Krogh, Liddy, Hunt, Young, etc. Hunt, as “White House consultant”, supposedly worked for the Mullen Corp.–a CIA cover. Mullen’s chief client was “Howard Hughes”. Robert Bennett was the head of the Mullen Corp.

 

June 28, 1971: Ellsberg indicted for leaking the Pentagon Papers.

 

September 5, 1971: The Watergate team broke into Ellsberg’s doctor’s (Fielding) office to get Ellsberg’s psychiatric records. Team members: CIA Hunt and Liddy; Cuban “Freedom Fighters” De Diego, Martinez, Bernard Barker. All except Liddy had worked together back at the Bay of Pigs.

 

Question: Why the intense battle between Mafia forces? Answer: While Onassis was the recognized crowned head of the Mafia, intense, no-holds-barred scuffling for the lucrative second spot (control of U.S. Presidency, government, and so on) was permissible and encouraged under the Mafia code of rules. The only stipulation: Outsiders mustn’t know about it. “Hughes” contributed liberally–and equally–to both Democratic and Republican parties for the 1972 election. The winner would get even more money from “Hughes”.

 

September 23, 1971: E. Howard Hunt spliced up the phony cables implicating JFK’s administration in the Diem assassination.

 

October 1971:Look magazine apologized to Alioto for their “Alioto Mafia Web” article–and folded. The sticking point: They couldn’t prove Alioto’s Mafia Nut Tree meeting back in 1963 re the JFK murder.

 

November 1971: Alioto re-elected S.F. Mayor.

 

December 1971: Roberts applied for a “Gemstone” visa from the Russian consulate–on a tapped phone. Phone was tapped by Hal Upset, S.F. private investigator, who worked for Katherine Meyer Graham, and others, and routinely monitored consulate phone calls.

January 1972: The Watergate team showed up at the S.F. Drift Inn, a CIA-FBI safe-house hangout bar, where Roberts conducted a nightly Gemstone rap, for the benefit of any CIA or FBI or anyone who wandered in for a beer. James McCord, Martinez, Bernard Barker, Garcia, and Frank Sturgis showed up–along with a San Francisco dentist named Fuller. James McCord remarked: “Sand and oil with hydrogen heat makes glass brick”–threat of war to Arab nations. The event, like the other nightly raps, was taped by the Drift Inn bartender, Al Strom, who was paid to do so by his old friend, Katherine Meyer Graham–but told his other friend, Roberts, about it. The bar was also wired for sound by Arabs, Russians and Chinese.

 

January 27, 1972: Liddy and Dean met in Mitchell’s office, with Liddy’s charts of his $1 million “plan” of spying, kidnapping, etc. The pleas, included breaking into Hank Greenspun’s Las Vegas office safe, in hopes of recovering Greenspun’s files on the Hughes kidnapping and Onassis’ Vegas operations, which Greenspun had successfully used to blackmail Onassis out of $4 million or so. A “Hughes” get-away plane would stand by to take the White House burglars to Mexico.

 

February l972: Liddy and Hunt traveled around a lot, using “Hughes Tool Co.” calling cards and aliases from Hunt’s spy novels.

 

Liddy, Hunt and other Watergaters dropped by for a beer at the Drift Inn, where they were photographed on bar stools for Katherine Graham. These photos were later used in the Washington Post when Liddy, Hunt the others were arrested at Watergate–because CIA men like Liddy and Hunt aren’t usually photographed.

 

Roberts quoted to Liddy the “Chinese stock market in ears”–the price–on Onassis’ head (by the ear) in retaliation for a few things Onassis had done; Wayne Rector, the Hughes double; Eugene Wyman, California Democratic Party Chairman and Mafia JFK pay-off bagman; and on Lyndon Johnson: “four bodies twisting in the breeze”.

 

Roberts: “Quoting the prices to Liddy at the Drift Inn made their deaths a mortal cinch. Liddy’s like that–and that’s why the murdering slob was picked by the Mafia.”

 

“Gemstones rolling around the Drift Inn in February inspired Liddy’s ‘Gemstone Plan’ that became Watergate.”

 

February 1972: Francis L. Dale, head of CREEP, and ITT Board of Directors member, pushed Magruder to push Liddy into Watergate.

 

In a Mafia-style effort to shut Roberts up, his father was murdered by “plumbers” team members Liz Dale (Francis L. Dale’s ex-wife), Martinez, Gonzalez, Barker, in Hahnemann’s Hospital, S.F. where Mr. Roberts had been taken after swallowing a sodium morphate “pill” slipped into his medicine bottle at home by Watergate locksmith (Miami’s “Missing Link” locksmith shop) Gonzalez. The pill didn’t kill him; he had a weak digestion, and, vomited enough of the sodium morphate up (it burned his lips and tongue on the way out)–but he had emphysema, and went to the hospital. In the hospital, “nurse” Liz Dale and “doctor” Martinez assisted him to sniff a quadruple-strength can of aerosol medicine–enough to kill him the next day.

 

The day before, Tisserant, head of the College of Cardinals at the Vatican, was pushed out a Vatican window. Tisserant had followed the career of the present Pope, Montini (whose mother was Jewish); Montini sodium-morphate-murdered Pope Pius XI; was banished from Rome for it by Pius XII; became Pope in 1963. Tisserant wrote it all down; called the Pope “The Deputy of Christ at Auschwitz” and the fulfillment of the Fatima 3 Prophecy: That the Anti-Christ shall rise to become the head of the Church”. Tisserant also wrote about all the suppressed secrets of the Roman Catholic Church, i.e., that Jesus Christ was an Arab, born April l6, 6 B.C., at the rate conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter. Arab (Persian) astronomers (the Magi) came to Bethlehem to look for their king–an Arab baby–and found him in a stable because the Jews wouldn’t let Arabs Mary and Joseph into their nice clean inns, even then. When Jesus overturned the tables of the moneylenders at the Temple, the Jews had the Romans nail him to a cross. He died on the cross when the Roman soldiers stuck a spear in his side, pulled out his liver and ate it. Tacitus, the Roman historian, described it all–in a chunk of history deleted by the Church. Nero burned Rome–but that didn’t stop the spreading of Jesus’ teachings by the earlier Christians (Arabs). So the Romans decided to adopt the religion, clean it up, make Christ a Jew and Mary a virgin and work out a church/state deal to fuck the people in the name of God and country that has been operating ever since. Around 300 A.D., at the Council of Nicaea, the Christian Orthodoxy was established; a dissenting bishop had his hands chopped off; another bishop was assigned to round up all the old copies of the Bible and destroy them in favor of the “revised”, de-Arabized version. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were declared “it”; the other Gospels were declared apocryphal and heretical. Roman Emperor Constantine became the first “Christian” Emperor.

 

Later, during the “Holy Crusades”, the Bible was again rewritten to include Jesus’ warning against the “yellow race”.

 

“27 Gemstones, with histories, to 27 countries–brought Red China into the U.N., and threw Taiwan out.”

 

April 1972: Money pours into CREEP: “Gulf Resources and Chemicals Corp., Houston, Texas” contributed $100,000; illegal, laundered through Mexico, comes back through Liedtke of Pennzoil Corp., Houston. Robert Vesco gives Maurice Stans $200,000 campaign contribution”, etc., etc. Liddy gives McCord $76,000; McCord buys $58,000 worth of bugging equipment, cameras, etc.

 

May 1972: J. Edgar Hoover had the Gemstone file; threatened to expose Dallas/JFK in an “anonymous” book, The Texas Mafia. Instead, someone put sodium morphate in his apple pie. The corpse was carted away from his home in the back seat of a VW–and his files were “burned”–but some of them got away.

 

May 28, 1972: First break-in at Watergate: McCord, Barker, Martinez, Garcia, Gonzalez, Sturgis. De Diego and Pico stood guard outside. Hunt and Liddy directed the operation from a (safe?) distance–across the street. The object was to check on Onassis’ two men at Democratic Party HQ: Larry O’Brien and Spencer Oliver. (O’Brien’s chief “PR” client had been “Hughes”; Oliver’s father worked for Onassis, McCord wire-tapped their phones.

 

But–little did McCord know that the Plumbers were being observed by Hal Lipset, Katherine Graham’s S.F. detective, who had followed two of the plumbers from Liz Dale’s side in S.F. to Watergate. Lipset “watched in amazement” as the Plumbers broke in and bugged the phones; then reported back to his boss, Katherine Graham. Lipset and Graham set the trap for the Watergaters when they returned to remove their bugs and equipment.

 

June 17, 1972: Bernard Barker was wearing his Sears, Roebuck deliveryman costume–the same one he wore at the Dr. Fielding break-in and at the Hahnemann Hospital murder of Mr. Roberts.

 

Hal Lipset, Graham’s spy, was dressed as a mailman. He left his mail sack behind when he taped the door at Watergate, watched security guard Frank Wills remove it and walked on; retaped the door, and, as a result, Frank Wills went across the street and called the police, and McCord, Martinez, Sturgis, Barker and Gonzalez were caught in the act. (Graham had them on tape and film, too, every minute of the time.) Liddy and Hunt, across the street, supervising via walkie-talkie, were not. Liddy called Magruder in California to Watergate re: arrests. Magruder told Mitchell LaRue and Mardian.

 

Time to burn files. Liddy shredded the Gemstone filed at CREEP.

 

Dean cleaned out Hunt’s safe at the White House, and gave Hunt’s copy of the Gemstone file to L. Patrick Gray, acting FBI head: “Deepsix this–in the interest of national security. This should never see the light of day.” Gray burned the file.

 

June 20, 1972: DNC Chairman Larry O’Brien filed a $1 million against CREEP, naming Francis L. Dale, the Head of CREEP. This was a big Mafia mistake–for Dale led directly back to Onassis.

 

June 21, 1972: The 18½ minutes of accidently-erased White House tape: Nixon, furious over the Watergate plumbers’ arrests, couldn’t figure out who had done it to him, who had taped the door at Watergate that led to the arrests? Hal Lipset, whose primary employer at the time was Katherine Graham, couldn’t tell him. Nixon figured that it had to do somehow with Roberts’ running around in Vancouver tracing the “Hughes” Mormon Mafia nursemaid’s (Eckersley) Mafia swindle of the Canadian stock exchange; and Trudeau. The 18½ minutes was of Nixon raving about Canada, “asshole Trudeau”, “asshole Roberts”, Onassis, “Hughes” and Francis L. Dale. It simply couldn’t be released.

 

Stephen Bull’s secretary, Beverly Kaye, later heard the “erased” tape,” stored in a locked room in the White House. She was horrified. She sent out some depressed Christmas cards and notes to friends, and sodium-morphate “heart-attacked”, at age 40 in a White House elevator outside the locked safe room where the tape was stored.

 

January 1973: Tisserant was dead–but as the Church rushed to destroy every copy of his papers, Roberts received one–and wrote a few of his own, released over several years:

 

  1. “The Cover-Up of the Murder of Christ”

 

  1. “The Yellow Race is not in China–The Yellow Race Dead-Fucks Mary Jo Kopechne.”

 

  1. “Mrs. Giannini’s Bank of America Financed the Murder of JFK at Dallas via Alioto’s Frattiano, Brading, and Roselli”

 

  1. “Vietnam–Fatima 3–Holy Crusade”

 

“Four documents; four bodies twisting slowly in the breeze”:

 

Lyndon Johnson: Sodium morphate “heart attack” at his ranch on the Pedernales River. Among his last words: “You know, fellows, it really was a conspiracy….”

 

Alexander Onassis‘ plane crash at the “1,000-foot Walter “Reuther Level” via a fixed altimeter, at Athens Airport.

 

Eugene Wynn, a California Democratic Party Chairman and JFK assassination pay-off bagman: heart attack.

 

  1. Wayne Rector, Hughes double: Killed at Rothschild’s Inn of the Park in London.

 

“Started the shattering of the Mafia economy.”

 

March 18, 1973: Roberts called Hal Lipset, discussing all these matters publicly over a taped phone. Lipset reported to Dean, who had hired him away from Graham after they figured out who had taped the door at Watergate. (Mitchell: Katie Graham’s liable to get her tit caught in a wringer.”)

 

March 19, 1973: Dean to Nixon, nervously: “There is a cancer growing the Presidency.”

 

March 21, 1973: Nixon said that on this date he “received new evidence” on Watergate. Lipset later bragged on TV that he had been the one to bring the “new evidence” to Nixon.

(Meanwhile, back at the Washington Post, Katherine Meyer (“Deep Throat”) Graham had been feeding Woodward and Bernstein information for their articles.)

 

May 10, 1973: The first witness at the Watergate hearing, the names on the CREEP organizational chart, mentioned the name at the top: Francis L. Dale, Chairman. Dale was never mentioned again during the rest of the trial.

 

July 9, 1973: Roberts had used Al Strom’s Drift Inn Bar as an “open lecture forum” for any and all–and Al Strom taped it for his boss, Katherine Graham. But “Al was fair” and told Roberts he was doing it, for which he was murdered on this date.

 

August 1973: Murder of Chile by Group of 40: Rockefeller and his man, Kissinger working with the CIA and $8 million. Allende’s Chile had nationalized ITT. Rockefeller had copper mines in Chile. Admiral Noel Gayler, Naval Intelligence, told Roberts one and a half years earlier that Chile would get it; Roberts warned the Chilean consul in advance: Allegria, now “teaching” at Stanford.

 

ITT has now exacted $125 million payment for its Chilean plants–a good return on their $8 million. Mafia-controlled Chile’s annual inflation rate has set a world’s record. In the style of the old Holy Roman Empire: a slave nation paying tribute to the conqueror.

 

October 1973: Another “Holy War”–Israelis vs. Arabs.

 

January 1974: Joe Alioto grants Sunol Golf Course lease to Mafioso Romano, Frattiano, Muniz, Madeiros, Abe Chapman and Neil Nielson. Alioto sets up the Dallas murder squad in S.F. for more murders.

 

January 26, 1974: “Hughes” extradition trial cancelled in Reno by “Alioto Mafia Web” Mafia Judge Thomson after Moses Lasky, from Mafia Alioto’s California Crime Commission, waves the forged “Howard Hughes” signature under his nose.

 

Maheu “wins” his damage suit against “Hughes”–his blackmail payoff–after discussing Hughes’ “game plan” for buying control of the U.S. by buying politicians: governors, judges, senators and presidents.

 

February 1974: Mafia Hearst’s daughter Patti “kidnapped” by Lipset’s SLA in a fake terrorist action.

 

Martin Luther King’s mother was murdered–by a black student, a self-declared “Israelite” “acting alone”, who was escorted to the church by somebody, and who had a list of other mothers as targets. Next day, the target, Shirley Chisholm, got the message and rushed to sign off on the DNC suit against CREEP naming Francis L. Dale; she had boon the last hold-out.

 

April 4, 1974: Mary McCarthy, a writer who had been given a copy of the Gemstone -file, said in an article in the “New York Review of Books” that the key to the formation of Liddy’s Gemstone plan lay in the whereabouts and activities of the Plumbers between December 1971 and February 1972. Answer: They were in the Drift Inn watching Gemstones rolling around on the bar top.

 

August 6, 1974: Nixon and Ford signed a paper at the White House. It was an agreement: Ford could be President; Nixon got to burn his tapes and files and murder anyone he needed to cover it all up.

 

August 7, 1974: Roberts passed information to Pavlov at the S.F. Russian Consulate which led directly to Nixon’s resignation: the “More” journalism review’s story about Denny Walsh’s “Reopening of the Alioto Mafia Web” story for the “New York Times” killed in a panic; plus a long, taped discussion of who and what the Mafia is. Hal Lipset, listening to the conversation in the bugged Consulate room, had phone lines open to Rockefeller and Kissinger, who listened, too. Rockefeller sent Kissinger running to the White House with Nixon’s marching orders: “Resign. Right now.” Nixon and Julie cried. But there was still some hope, if Nixon resigned immediately, of drawing the line somewhere before it got to the King of the Mountain himself–Onassis. Nixon, on trial, would blurt out those names to save himself: Onassis, Dale, “Hughes”, even “JFK”.

 

August 8, 1974: Nixon stepped down and Ford stopped up: to keep the cover-up going.

 

August 23, 1974: Frattiano in San Francisco, staying at the Sunol Golf Course. More murders scheduled to Gemstone cover-up.

 

August 30, 1974: Ford hires Mafia lawyer Becker to work out a pardon deal for Nixon, who might otherwise name Onassis, Graham and Pope Montini to save himself.

 

San Francisco Zebra Murders: A series of “random” killings dubbed’ “Zebra Murders” by the police because, supposedly, blacks were killing whites: The real target was Silva, the witness to Alioto’s Mafia Nut Tree meeting. Silva was shot to death in an alley. Careful Mafia planning went into this series, to kill several birds with one stone: 1. Get witness Silva out of the way without being too “obvious” about it; 2. Spread fear of “black terrorists” and convince people that the Police Department needed more money and more repressive power; 3. Blame, and frame, Black Muslims–knock off leaders of the opposition.

 

September 7, 1974: Roberts had made an agreement with a friend, Harp, of S.F. Kish Realty over a bugged phone. Harp was to buy a Gemstone, with history, for $500, the price of a trip to Canada for Roberts to check into the Hughes’ Mormon Mafia Canadian stock market swindle and other matters. But Harp was sodium-morphate poisoned before the deal could go through–on this date.

Note: Sodium morphate, a favorite Mafia poison for centuries. Smells like apple pie and is sometimes served up in one, as to J. Edgar Hoover. Sometimes in a pill or capsule. Symptoms: lethargy, sleep, sometimes vomiting. Once ingested, there is a heart attack and no trace is left in the body. Proof is in the vomit, which is usually not analyzed. Not mentioned in your standard medical books on poisons, etc. A common ingredient in rat poison.

 

September 8, 1974: Ford pardons Nixon for “all crimes committed from January 20, through August 1974”.

 

Gemstone papers still floating around the world. Indira Gandhi talks about the “U.S.’s bloody deeds”.

 

October 1974: Ford drops “extradition” of Hughes from the Bahamas. Explanation: “We dropped it because we knew, he wouldn’t come.” That’s for sure.

 

October 3, 1974: The Watergate trial (the cover-up of the cover-up) got under way, starring Montini’s Ben Veniste, Onassis’ Neal, Graham’s Jill Volner. In the White House, Mafia Mayors Alioto, Daley and Beame met with the “truth squad”–Ford, Scott and Griffin–and Mike Mansfield, in secret.

 

October 10, 1974: Tina Livanos Onassis Blandford Niarchos, sodium-morphate poisoned by hubby Stavros; puked, slept and died of “heart attack”.

 

Losing his son, Alexander, took all the fun out of killing for Onassis. Who was there to inherit the world empire he had dreamed of handing over to his son?

 

December 1974: Brezhnev had scheduled a meeting with Sadat of Egypt. The outcome wouldn’t help the U.S: no matter how many trips Henry made to the Mid-East with clean socks and blank checks. A new U.S. “secret weapon” was apparently used: a tiny speck of metal, introduced somehow into Brezhnev’s lymph system. It lodged in the cluster of lymph nodes over his heart and there it was coated with layer of phlegm, much as an oyster creates a pearl around an irritating grain of sand. Brezhnev’s lymph system clogged up, he got the “flu”, and the meeting with Sadat was cancelled.

 

Russian doctors X-rayed him and found a huge lump in his chest before a Kirlian camera and checked his “aura” for cancer. No cancer.

 

Note: Kirlian photography is the latest Russian diagnostic tool. It reveals the presence of disease, physical or moral (it also detects lies).

 

Brezhnev’s “lump” had to be treated with radiation therapy, hence rumors he had cancer. It took six weeks to clear up.

 

March 1975: Onassis died. The Mafia organization regrouped itself. Prince Faisal watched his Uncle, King Faisal, silently watched the shift of Mafia power and couldn’t stand it anymore. He shot his uncle, the spiritual leader of 600,000,000 Moslems, who had played ball with Onassis all along.

 

South Vietnam’s Thieu, dubious about which way the Mafia cookie would crumble now that Onassis was dead, decided the time was right for him to split. He abandoned the War Effort, cursed the U.S. and split for Taiwan, his plane so overloaded with gold bullion that he had to dump some overboard.

 

March 15, 1975: Roberts got the “Brezhnev flu” and spent two weeks at U.C. Hospital. Doctors there, without the Kirlian photography diagnostic technique assumed the softball-sized lump over his heart was cancer. It wasn’t.

 

April 1975: The Cambodian domino was no fun at all; it fell right over. Premier Lon Nol fled to exile in a Hawaiian suburb.

 

Colby, CIA Chief, in a fit of spite, “leaked” the “stolen” story of the CIA-Hughes’ Glomar Explorer’s rising of the bodies of drowned Russian sailors from their sunken nuclear submarine. Purpose: To bug the Russians, and also to halt criticism of the CIA by pointing out how noble, brave and self-sacrificing they are in their efforts to save us.

 

The Russians are funny about their dead. They bitterly resented Colby’s game. They quietly went through a massive naval “war game”–the rehearsal of a nuclear attack on the U.S.

 

Which brings us almost to the present time. Ford, Kissinger and Rockefeller squat like toads on the corpse of America. By the time of the Bicentennial the stink may be unbearable.

 

Ford now plans a propaganda movie version of his book, “Portrait of an Assassin”, which will reiterate the exploded cock-and-bullshit notion that Oswald was JFK’s “lone assassin”. With singularly inept misunderstanding of the times, he seems to think Americans will take his word for it and be “reassured” in the face of those “crackpot conspiracy theories”. He doesn’t seem to realize that he will be reminding, or informing, Americans of his role on the infamous Warren Commission.

 

I hope this outline will make individual Gemstone papers easier to understand.

Campbell Soup recalls 15M pounds of SpaghettiOs

This isn’t an especially noteworthy story, but the headline made me smile. That’s a lot of SphaghettiOs!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100618/ap_on_bi_ge/us_spaghettios_recall

By MARY CLARE JALONICK, Associated Press Writer Mary Clare Jalonick, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 18 mins ago
SpaghettiOs!
WASHINGTON – Campbell Soup Co. is recalling 15 million pounds of SpaghettiOs with meatballs after a cooker malfunctioned at one of the company’s plants in Texas and left the meat undercooked.

The Agriculture Department announced the recall late Thursday. Campbell spokesman Anthony Sanzio said the company is recalling certain lots of the product manufactured since December 2008 “out of an abundance of caution” because officials don’t know exactly when the cooker at the Paris, Texas, plant malfunctioned. Officials believe it happened recently but aren’t sure, he said.

The meatballs that went through the cooker did not get the requisite amount of heat, according to the company.

Recalled are certain lots of three varieties of the pasta product often consumed by children: SpaghettiOs with Meatballs, SpaghettiOs A to Z with Meatballs, and SpaghettiOs Fun Shapes with Meatballs (Cars).

U.S. Identifies Vast Riches of Minerals in Afghanistan

“U.S. Identifies Vast Riches of Minerals in Afghanistan”

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/14/world/asia/14minerals.html?no_interstitial

"There is stunning potential here." Gen. David H. Petraeus on Afghan mineral deposits.

This makes it sound like they just discovered those minerals. Don’t you think it’s safe to assume the U.S. has had its lustful eye on those minerals since before the occupation? “Terrorism” is the perennial convenient excuse, but the U.S has had an interest in that area long before 9/11 because it wanted to secure access to the Caspian Sea oil reserves it can’t get from Iran.
