The Secret History of the Anglo-British-American Domination of Global Politics, Finance, and Wars for Profit, Elite Ideology, and Imperialism

*Note: The following article was written by the excellent alternative historians, Gerry Docherty and Jim Macgregor. In my opinion, it is such an erudite and beautiful piece of para-political secret history that I thought I would reproduce it in its totality for this blog’s readership, particularly since it is certainly in the same vein as to what this blog is all about. This is particularly essential if you are to come to understand how power really operates and is exercised in the world then and now. Naturally, it becomes all the more relevant when discussing (as this article does) the secret founding of the Federal Reserve Bank, the esoteric origins of WWI, and certain Anglophile elite cabals such as the Cecil Rhodes founded “Group” and the Pilgrims Society. -Parapoliticaljournal.com

Rich and powerful elites have long dreamed of world control. The ambitious Romans, Attila the Hun, great Muslim leaders of Medieval Spain, the Mughals of India all exercised immense influence over different parts of the globe in set periods of recognized ascendancy.

Sometimes tribal, sometimes national, sometimes religious, often dynastic, their success defined epochs, but was never effectively global until the twentieth century. At that point, with the future of the British Empire under threat from other aspiring nations, in particular Germany, a momentous decision was taken by a group of powerful and determined men. Their decision was that direct action had to be taken to assert their control, and that of the British race, over the entire civilized world. It has grown from that tiny select cabal into a monster that may already be beyond control.

“One wintry afternoon in February 1891, three men were engaged in earnest conversation in London. From that conversation were to flow consequences of the greatest importance for the British Empire and to the world as a whole.”

So begins Professor Carroll Quigley’s book The Anglo American Establishment. It may read like a John Le Carre thriller, but this was no spy fiction. The three staunch British Imperialists who met in London that day, Cecil Rhodes, William Stead and Lord Esher, were soon joined by Lords Rothschild, Salisbury, Rosebery and Milner, men whose financial, political, and administrative powers set them apart.

Some of these names may not be familiar to you, but that is a mark of the absolute success of this group. From the outset they insisted on secrecy, operated in secret and ensured that their influence was airbrushed from history. They believed that white men of Anglo-Saxon descent rightly sat at the top of the racial hierarchy and they fully understood the impending threat from a burgeoning Germany whose modern, expanding economy had begun to challenge British hegemony on the world stage.

The above named elites drew up a plan for a secret society that aimed to renew the bond between Great Britain and the United States [1] and bring all habitable portions of the world under their influence and control. The U.S. had grown rapidly in self-esteem, wealth and opportunity since the declaration of independence in 1776, but Anglo-American connections remained strong and would embroil her in the long-term plan for one world government. The meeting in 1891 was, in effect, the birth of the New World Order cabal.

Great financiers frequently used their fortunes to influence questions of peace and war and control politics for profit. Cecil Rhodes was different. He was determined to use his vast fortune not simply to generate ever-increasing profit, but to realize his dream, a dream he shared with his co-conspirators. Rhodes turned the profit objective on its head and sought to amass great wealth into his secret society in order to achieve political ends, to buy governments and politicians, buy public opinion and the means to influence it. [2]

Cecil Rhodes

He intended that his wealth should be used to grasp control of the world, secretly. Secrecy was the cornerstone. No one outside the favored few knew of the group’s existence. They have since been referred to obliquely in speeches and books as “The Money Power”, “The Hidden Power” or “the men behind the curtain”. All of these labels are pertinent, but we have called them, collectively, the secret elite.

Carroll Quigley revealed that secret elite influence on education was chiefly visible at the exclusive English private schools, Eton and Harrow, and at Oxford University, especially All Souls and Balliol Colleges. [3] This immensely rich and powerful group was given intellectual approval and inspiration by the philosophy of John Ruskin, professor of fine arts at Oxford. He spoke to the Oxford undergraduates as members of the privileged ruling class, telling them that they possessed a magnificent tradition of education, rule of law and freedom. He championed all that was finest in the public service ethic, duty and self-discipline, and believed that English ruling class tradition should be spread to the masses across the empire. [4]

But behind such well-serving words lay a philosophy strongly opposed to the emancipation of woman, had no time for democracy and supported the “just” war. [5] Ruskin advocated that control of the state should be placed in the hands of a small ruling class. Social order was to be built upon the authority of superiors, imposing upon their inferiors an absolute, unquestioning obedience. He was repelled by the notion of leveling between the classes and by the disintegration of the “rightful” authority of the ruling class. [6]

Ruskin’s philosophy was music to the ears of the elitists. It gave their lust for global power the blessing of academic approval. What they did, they would claim, was not for them, but for mankind. They would rise to power on the spurious justification that the world would consequently be a better place for humanity.

Inspired by Ruskin, Cecil Rhodes and his accomplices created the secret society with an inner core of trusted associates called “The Society of the Elect”, who unquestionably knew that they were members of an exclusive cabal devoted to taking and holding power on a world-wide basis. [7]

A second outer ring, larger and quite fluid in its membership, was named “The Association of Helpers”. At this level members might not have known that they were an integral part of, or inadvertently being used by, a secret society. Many on the outer edges of the group, idealists and honest individuals, may never have been aware that the real decisions were made by a ruthless clique about whom they had no knowledge. [8]

The man who exposed the secret society, Carroll Quigley (1910 – 1977), was the highly esteemed professor of history at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, and a lecturer at Princeton and Harvard. He revealed that the organization was able to “conceal its existence quite successfully, and many of its most influential members… are unknown even to close students of British History”. [9]

Quigley’s greatest contribution to our understanding of modern history came with his books, The Anglo-American Establishment and Tragedy and Hope, A History of the World in Our Time. The former was written in 1949 but only released after his death. His disclosures placed him in such potential danger from an Establishment backlash that it was never published in his lifetime. In a 1974 radio broadcast, Quigley warned the interviewer, Rudy Maxa of the Washington Post, “You better be discreet. You have to protect my future as well as your own.” [10]

Quigley had received assistance of a “personal nature” from individuals close to what he called the “Group”, but “for obvious reasons” he could not reveal their names. [11] He made it clear that evidence about them was not hard to find “if you know where to look,” [12] and it has to be asked why generations of historians have failed to pursue his trail.

Though sworn to secrecy, Professor Quigley revealed in the radio interview that Sir Alfred Zimmern, the British historian and political scientist, had confirmed the names of the main protagonists within the secret society. Without a shadow of doubt, Zimmern himself was a close associate of those at the center of real power in Britain. He knew most of the key figures personally and was himself a member of the inner core of the secret society for twelve years between 1910 and 1922. [13]

The enigma of Professor Quigley’s work lies in his statement that while the secret cabal had brought many of the things he held dear close to disaster, he generally agreed with its goals and aims. [14] Were these merely words of self-preservation? Be mindful of his warning to Rudy Maxa as late as 1974. Quigley clearly felt that these revelations placed him in danger.

Unknown persons removed his major work, Tragedy and Hope, from the bookstore shelves in America, and it was withdrawn from sale without any justification soon after its release. The book’s original plates were unaccountably destroyed by Quigley’s publisher, the Macmillan Company, who, for the next six years “lied, lied, lied” to him and deliberately misled him into believing that it would be reprinted. [15] Why? What pressures obliged a major publishing house to take such extreme action? Quigley stated categorically that powerful people had suppressed the book because it exposed matters that they did not want known. The reader has to understand that we are discussing individuals whose power, influence and control were unrivaled.

From the very start, each of the initial conspirators brought valuable qualities and connections to the society. Cecil Rhodes was Prime Minister of the Cape Colony and master and commander of a vast area of Southern Africa which some were already beginning to call Rhodesia. His wealth had been underwritten by brutal native suppression [16] and the global mining interests of the House of Rothschild, [17] to whom he was answerable. William Stead was the most prominent journalist of his day and a voice to which ordinary people listened.

Lord Esher represented the interests of the monarchy from Queen Victoria’s final years, through the exuberant excesses of King Edward VII, to the more sedate but pliable King George V. His influence was immense because he operated between monarchs, the aristocracy and leading political figures. He chaired important secret committees, was responsible for appointments to the Cabinet, the senior ranks of the diplomatic corps and voiced strong personal opinion on top army posts. [18] Esher exerted a power behind the throne far in excess of his constitutional position. His role of power-broker on behalf of the secret elite was without equal. Indeed Professor Quigley dubbed him, “the greatest wire puller of the period.” [19]

Another name that pervaded all that was powerful and influential during this period was that of the Rothschild dynasty, and Quigley placed Lord Nathaniel (Natty) Rothschild within the very core of the secret organization. [20] Rothschild was all-powerful in British and world banking and virtually untouchable.

“The House of Rothschild was immensely more powerful than any financial empire that had ever preceded it. It commanded vast wealth. It was international. It was independent. Royal governments were nervous of it because they could not control it. Popular movements hated it because it was not answerable to the people. Constitutionalists resented it because its influence was exercised behind the scenes – secretly.” [21]

Mayer Amschel Rothschild

Taken together, the principal players, Rhodes, Stead, Esher, Rothschild and Milner represented a new force that was emerging inside British politics, but powerful old traditional aristocratic families that had long dominated Westminster, often in cahoots with the reigning monarch, were also deeply involved, and none more so than the Cecil family. Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil, the patriarchal 3rd Marquis of Salisbury, ruled the Conservative Party at the latter end of the nineteenth century. He served as prime minister three times for a total of fourteen years, between 1885 and 1902 (longer than anyone else in recent history). When he retired as prime minister in July 1902, he handed over the reins of government to his sister’s son, Arthur Balfour.

Lord Salisbury had four siblings, five sons and three daughters who were all linked and interlinked by marriage to individuals in the upper echelons of the English ruling class. Important government positions were given to relations, friends and wealthy supporters who proved their gratitude by ensuring that his views became policy in government, civil service and diplomatic circles. This extended ‘Cecil-Bloc’ was intricately linked to “The Society of the Elect” and secret elite ambitions throughout the first half of the twentieth century. [22]

Another member of the inner core, Lord Alfred Milner, offers cause for greater scrutiny because he has been virtually airbrushed from the history of the period. Alfred Milner was a self-made man and remarkably successful civil servant who became a key figure within the secret elite and absolutely powerful within the ranks of these privileged individuals. He and Rhodes had been contemporaries at Oxford University, and were inextricably connected through events in South Africa. Rhodes recognized in him the kind of steel that was required to pursue the dream of world domination, “I support Milner absolutely without reserve. If he says peace, I say peace; if he says war, I say war. Whatever happens, I say ditto to Milner.” [23] Milner grew in time to be the most able of them all, to enjoy the privilege of patronage and power, a man to whom others turned for leadership and direction.

When governor general and high commissioner of South Africa, Milner deliberately caused the Boer War in order to grab the Transvaal’s gold and use the economic resources of South Africa to extend and perpetuate secret elite control. He had the grace to confess in a letter to Lord Roberts, Commander in Chief in South Africa, that

“I precipitated the crisis, which was inevitable, before it was too late. It is not very agreeable, and in many eyes, not very creditable piece of business to have been largely instrumental in bringing about a big war.” [24]

This was no immodest boast. Alfred Milner’s matter-of-fact explanation displayed the cold objectivity that drove the secret elite cause. War was unfortunate, but necessary. It had to be. They were not afraid of war.

The secret elite’s war against the Dutch settlers began in October 1899 and ended with the signing of the Treaty of Vereeniging on 31 May 1902. The Boer Republics were annexed to the British Empire. The Transvaal’s gold was finally in the hands of the secret elite at a cost of some 70,000 dead on the battlefields, plus 32,000 dead in British concentration camps, including more than 20,000 children of Dutch descent.

Some thirty thousand Boer farms were burned to the ground, livestock slaughtered, and the women and children put in British concentration camps. In the camps, the families of men fighting for the Boer army were punished by being put on half the already meagre rations with no meat whatsoever. [25] W. T. Stead, former member of the inner core of the secret elite who had resigned in disgust over the Boer War, was overcome by the evidence presented to him. He wrote,

“Every one of these children who died as a result of the halving of their rations, thereby exerting pressure onto their family still on the battle-field, was purposefully murdered. The system of half rations stands exposed, stark and unashamedly as a cold-blooded deed of state policy employed with the purpose of ensuring the surrender of men whom we were not able to defeat on the field.” [26]

20,000 children dying in British concentration camps were of little consequence to Milner. He was so driven that he ignored the weight of opposition ranged against him. He warned his friend, Richard Haldane: “If we are to build up anything in South Africa, we must disregard, and absolutely disregard, the screamers.” [27] It takes a very strong man to disregard the screamers, to ignore moral indignation, to put the cause before humanitarian concerns. Some front line politicians find it all but impossible to stand against a torrent of public outrage, but those behind the curtain in the secret corridors of power can easily ignore ‘sentimentality’.

Milner’s period of stewardship in South Africa had a very important consequence. He administered the defeated Transvaal and Orange Free State as occupied territories, and recruited into the upper layers of his civil service a band of young men from well-to-do, upper-class, frequently titled families who became known as “Milner’s Kindergarten.” [28] They replaced the government and administration of the Boer republics, and worked prodigiously to rebuild the broken country. [29] The Kindergarten comprised new blood; young educated men – mostly Oxford graduates, with a deep sense of duty, loyalty to the Empire and capable of populating the next generation of the secret society. [30] In the period 1909-1913 the Kindergarten set up semi-secret groups, known as Round Table Groups, in the United States and the chief British dependencies.

The Round Table Groups in Canada, as elsewhere, were merely different names for “The Association of Helpers” and only part of the secret society, since the real power still lay with “The Society of the Elect”. This all-powerful inner-core would bring in new members from the outer ring as was deemed necessary. [35] The alliance of powerful investment bankers, politicians, diplomats and press barons shared the same unwritten purpose, the destruction of German imperial power and the confirmation of Anglo-Saxon domination of the world.

Money was never a problem for the secret elite. As we have seen, Natty Rothschild, the richest man in the world, was directly involved from the beginning, but the ‘Money-Power’ extended well beyond that single source. The Rand multimillionaires, Sir Abe Bailey and Alfred Beit were members of the inner core [36] and always willing to finance secret elite proposals, fund their propaganda groups, and back Milner. Sir Ernest Cassel, an investment banker and one of the wealthiest men in pre-war Europe, was likewise involved. Cassel, a close friend of King Edward VII, acted as go-between for the British government and provided personal funds for Lord Esher. [37]

Other great financiers and bankers, centered in the City, the financial and banking district of London, shared the vision of a single world power based on English ruling class values. The world had entered an era of financial capitalism where these wealthy international investment bankers were able to dominate both industry and government if they had the concerted will to do so. [38] This “Money Power” seeped into the British Establishment and joined the aristocratic landowning families who had ruled Britain for centuries. Together, they lay at the heart of the secret elite.

In his “Confession of Faith”, Cecil Rhodes had written of bringing the whole uncivilized world under British rule, and the “recovery” of the United States to make the “Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire,” [39] by which he meant a white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant America working in tandem with like minds in England. Clearly the United States could not be “recovered” by force of arms, so Rhodes dream was expanded to include the wealthy elites in the U.S. who shared a similar mind-set.

Rhodes suffered from heart and lung problems and was aware that his projected life span was limited. He wrote several wills to ensure that his fortune would be used to pursue his dream. Part of his strategy was to gift scholarship places at his alma mater, Oxford University, in the belief that exposure to British culture, philosophy and education would strengthen the best young minds from the colonies and, most importantly, the United States.

Rhodes scholarships favored American students, with two allocated for each of the fifty states and territories, but only sixty places for the entire British Empire. The “best talents” from the “best families” in the US were to be nurtured at Oxford, spiritual home of the secret elite, and imbued with an appreciation of “Englishness” and “retention of the unity of the Empire.” [40] Professor Quigley revealed that “the scholarships were merely a facade to conceal the secret society, or, more accurately, they were to be one of the instruments by which the members of the secret society could carry out his [Rhodes] purpose.” [41]

The secret elite appreciated America’s vast potential, and adjusted the concept of British Race supremacy to Anglo-Saxon supremacy. Rhodes ‘s dream had only to be slightly modified. The world was to be united through the English-speaking nations in a federal structure based around Britain. [42] Alfred Milner became the undisputed leader of the secret society when Cecil Rhodes died in 1902. Like Rhodes, he believed that the goal should be pursued by a secret political and economic elite influencing “journalistic, educational and propaganda agencies” behind the scenes. [43]

The flow of money into the United States during the nineteenth century advanced industrial development to the immense benefit of the millionaires it created, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Morgan, Vanderbilt and their associates. The Rothschilds represented British interests, either directly through front companies or indirectly, through agencies they controlled. Railroads, steel, shipbuilding, construction, oil and finance blossomed in an oft-cut throat environment, though that was more apparent than real. These small groups of massively rich individuals on both sides of the Atlantic knew each other well, and the secret elite in London initiated a very select and secretive dining club, The Pilgrims, that brought them together on a regular basis.

On 11 July 1902, an inaugural meeting was held at the Carlton Hotel [44] of what became known as the London Chapter of The Pilgrims Society, with a select membership limited by individual scrutiny to 500. Ostensibly, the society was created to “promote goodwill, good friendship and everlasting peace” [45] between Britain and the United States, but its highly secretive and exclusive membership leaves little doubt as to its real purpose. This was the pool of wealth and talent that the secret elite drew together to promote its agenda in the years preceding the First World War.

Behind an image of the Pilgrim Fathers, the persecuted pioneers of Christian values, this elite cabal advocated the idea that “Englishmen and Americans would promote international friendship through their pilgrimages to and fro across the Atlantic “. [46] It presented itself as a spontaneous movement to promote democracy across the world [47] and doubtless many of the members believed that, but The Pilgrims included a select collective of the wealthiest figures in both Britain and the United States who were deeply involved with the secret elite. They shared Rhodes’ dream and wanted to be party to it.

The New York branch of The Pilgrims was launched at the Waldorf-Astoria on 13 January 1903, [48] and comprised the most important bankers, politicians and lawyers on the Eastern Seaboard. They established a tradition of close interaction with British and American ambassadors. [49] The ambassadorial connections with The Pilgrims would prove absolutely crucial in linking the Foreign Secretary in London and the Secretary of State in Washington to the secret elite and its agenda for war. A number of the American Pilgrims also had close links with the New York branch of the secret elite’s Round Table.

Round Table Groups

In Britain, at least eighteen members of the secret elite, including Lords Rothschild, Curzon, Northcliffe, Esher and Balfour attended Pilgrims dinners, though the regularity of their attendance is difficult to establish. Such is the perennial problem with secretive groups. We know something about the guests invited to dinner, but not what was discussed between courses. [50] In New York, members included both the Rockefeller and Morgan dynasties and many men in senior government posts. Initially, membership was likewise limited to 500. [51]

The power-elite in America was New York centered, carried great influence in domestic and international politics, and was heavily indulgent of Yale, Harvard and Princeton Universities. They conducted an American version of what Carroll Quigley termed the secret elite’s triple-front-penetration of politics, the press and education. [52] The Pilgrims Society brought together American money and British aristocracy, royalty, government ministers and top diplomats. It was indeed a special relationship.

Of all the American banking establishments, none was more Anglo-centric than the J. P. Morgan bank, itself deeply involved with The Pilgrims. An American, George Peabody, established the bank in London in 1835. In 1854 he took on a partner, Junius Morgan, (father of J. P. Morgan) and the bank was renamed Peabody, Morgan & Co. When Peabody’s retired in 1864 it became the J. S. Morgan bank.

J. Pierpont Morgan

The Rothschilds had developed a close relationship with Peabody and Morgan, and following a crash in 1857 saved the bank by organizing a huge bailout by the Bank of England. Although American by birth, the Morgan family wore their affinity to England like a badge of honor. Despite stinging criticism from Thomas Jefferson that Junius’s father-in-law, the Rev John Pierpont, was “under the influence of the whore of England,” [53] Junius sent his son to the English High School in Boston. J. P. Morgan spent much of his younger years absorbing English traditions, and was an ardent anglophile and admirer of the British Empire.

In 1899 J. P. Morgan traveled to England to attend an international Bankers Convention and returned to America as the representative of Rothschild interests in the United States. [54] It was the perfect front. Morgan, who posed as an upright Protestant guardian of capitalism, who could trace his family roots to pre-Revolutionary times, acted for the Rothschilds and shielded their American profits from the poison of antisemitism.

JP Morgan Building

In 1895 the Rothschilds had secretly replenished the US gold reserves through J.P. Morgan, and raised him to the premier league of international banking. [55] In turn, his gratitude was extended to another Rothschild favorite and leading figure in the secret elite, Alfred Milner. In 1901, Morgan offered Milner a then massive income of $100,000 per annum to become a partner in the London branch [56] but Milner was not to be distracted from the vital business of the Boer War. J. P. Morgan was an Empire loyalist at the heart of the American Establishment.

A second powerful bank on Wall Street, Kuhn, Loeb & Co., also served as a Rothschild front. Jacob Schiff, a German who ran the bank, came from a family close to the Rothschilds. [57] He had been born in the house his parents shared with the Rothschilds in the Jewish quarter of Frankfurt. [58] Schiff was an experienced European banker whose career straddled both continents, with contacts in New York, London, Hamburg and Frankfurt. His long-standing friend, Edward Cassel of the secret elite, was appointed Kuhn, Loeb’s agent in London. Schiff even dined with King Edward on the strength of Cassel’s close friendship with the King. [59]

Jacob Schiff had married Solomon Loeb’s daughter and, backed by Rothschild gold, quickly gained overall control of the Kuhn, Loeb Bank. [60] Schiff in turn brought a young German banker, Paul Warburg, over to New York to help him run the bank. Paul and his brother Max had served part of their banking apprenticeships with Natty Rothschild in London. Like the Peabody-Morgan bank in London, the Warburg family bank in Hamburg had been saved by a very large injection of Rothschild money, and undoubtedly acted as a Rothschild front thereafter.

On the surface there were periods of blistering competition between the investment banking houses and international oil goliaths J. D. Rockefeller and the Rothschilds, but by the turn of the century they adopted a more subtle relationship that avoided real competition. A decade earlier, Baron Alphonse de Rothschild had accepted Rockefeller’s invitation to meet in New York behind the closed doors of Standard Oil’s headquarters on Broadway.

Standard’s chief spokesman, John D Archbold [61] reported that they had quickly reached a tentative agreement, and thought it desirable on both sides that the matter was kept confidential. Clearly both understood the advantage of monopolistic collusion. It was a trend they eventually developed to their own advantage. By the early years of the twentieth century much of the assumed rivalry between major stakeholders in banking, industry and commerce was a convenient facade, though they would have the world believe otherwise.

Consider please this convenient facade. Official Rothschild biographers maintain that the dynasty’s interests in America were limited, and that the American Civil War led to “a permanent decline in the Rothschild’s transatlantic influence”. [62] All our evidence points in the opposite direction. Their associates, agents and front companies permeated American finance and industry. Their influence was literally everywhere. J. P. Morgan, the acknowledged chieftain of the Anglo-American financial establishment was the main conduit for British capital [63] and a personal friend of the Rothschilds.

Jacob Schiff of Kuhn, Loeb, another close friend of the Rothschild family, worked hand-in-glove with Rockefeller in oil, railroad and banking enterprises. Jacob Schiff the Pilgrim was both a Rothschild agent and a trusted associate of J. D. Rockefeller the Pilgrim. Morgan, Schiff and Rockefeller, the three leading players on Wall Street, had settled into a cosy cartel behind which the House of Rothschild remained hidden, but retained immense influence and power. Control of capital and credit was increasingly concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer men until the rival banking groups ceased to operate in genuine competition. [64]

This trans-Atlantic financial collusion underpinned the Anglo-American bond on which the secret elite built their dream of world domination. Political control moved hand in glove with the Money-Power.

One of the problems the secret elite had to contend with was democracy, even the very limited choice that British and American democracy had to offer. Professor Quigley observed that Alfred Milner, and apparently most members of the secret elite, believed that “democracy was not an unmixed good, or even a good, and far inferior to the rule of the best…” [65] They, of course, believed themselves “the best” and their morality did not exclude the use of warfare to carry out what they deemed to be their civilizing mission; a new world order based on ruling class values in which they would be first amongst men.

In Britain, faced with an electorate that frequently changed allegiance from the Conservative party to the Liberal party and back again, the secret elite selected reliable and trusted men to hold high office in both parties. Conservative Prime Minister Arthur Balfour, a member of the inner circle of the secret elite, [66] and Foreign Secretary Lord Lansdowne began the transformation of British Foreign policy towards war with Germany in the sure knowledge that senior Liberals would continue that policy if and when the people voted for change.

Herbert Henry Asquith, Richard Haldane and Sir Edward Grey were Milner’s chosen senior men in the Liberal Party and “objects of his special attention”. [67] Their remit was to ensure that an incoming Liberal government maintained a seamless foreign policy that served the grand plan. Their secret elite connections were impeccable. Together, with their good friend Arthur Balfour, they were intimately involved with the inner circles of the cabal. Their duty was to the King, the Empire, to Milner’s dream, to Rhode’s legacy. They confronted the same problems, analyzed the same alternatives and agreed the same solution. Germany had to go.

The senior Liberals, Asquith, Grey and Haldane, conspired to undermine the anti-war Liberal Party leader Campbell-Bannerman from within and were supported by both the Conservative party leaders and King Edward VII, himself a key figure inside the secret elite. Every major step taken by the British Foreign Office from 1902 onwards was dictated by the overall objective to destroy Germany. Treaties with Japan, the Entente Cordiale with France and all of its secret clauses, the secret conventions agreed between King Edward and the Russian Czar had that single purpose. Simply put, the large field armies of France and Russia were needed to crush Germany.

In the United States, and indeed in France, political power was guaranteed by financial incentives and the appointment of suitable candidates, in other words through bribery and corruption. Senator Nelson Aldrich of Rhode Island was chosen by the secret elite to be the voice of “sound economics” in the Senate. A wealthy businessman and father-in-law of J.D. Rockefeller Jr., Aldrich was known as “Morgan’s floor broker in the Senate.” [68] Shameless in his excesses, he used public office to feather his own very large nest. Public service was to him little more than a cash cow through which he built a ninety-nine roomed chateau and sailed a two hundred foot yacht. [69]

Over a two-year period the Money-Power worked steadily on their chosen Senator to turn him into an “expert” on banking systems. Congress appointed a National Monetary Commission in 1908 with Aldrich as Chairman to review U.S. banking. Its members toured Europe, supposedly collecting data on various banking systems. Aldrich’s final report, however, was not the product of any European study tour, but of a collective conspiracy.

In November 1910, five bankers representing Morgan, Rockefeller and Kuhn Loeb interests, met in total secrecy with Senator Aldrich and the Assistant Secretary to the U.S. Treasury on Jekyll Island, an exclusive playground of the mega-rich off the coast of Georgia. Of the seven conspirators, five, Senator Aldrich, Henry Davison, Benjamin Strong, Frank Vanderlip and Paul Warburg, were members of The Pilgrims. [70] Their objective was to formulate a Central Banking Bill that would be presented to Congress as if it was the brainchild of Aldrich’s Monetary Commission.

Jekyll_Island_Clubhouse

The proposed “Federal Reserve System” was to be owned entirely by private banks, though its name implied that it was a government institution. Individuals from the American banking dynasties, including Morgan, Warburg, Schiff and Rockefeller, would hold the shares. It was to be a central bank of issue that would have a monopoly of all the money and credit of the people of the United States. It would control the interest rate and the volume of money in circulation.

The Federal Reserve System constructed on Jekyll Island had powers that King Midas could never have contemplated. The objective was to establish a franchise to create money out of nothing for the purpose of lending, get the taxpayer to pick up any losses, and convince Congress that the aim was to protect the public. [71]

The Aldrich proposals never went to a vote. President Taft refused to support the Bill on the grounds that it would not impose sufficient government control over the banks. The Money Power decided that Taft had to go. Their support in the 1912 Presidential election swung behind the little known Woodrow Wilson. The speed with which Wilson was bounced from his post at Princeton University in 1910, to Governor of New Jersey in 1911, then Democratic Party nominee for the Presidency in 1912 made him the Solomon Grundy of U S politics.

Not only did the secret elite put their man in the White House, they also gave him a minder, Edward Mandell House. Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States but this shadowy figure stood by his side, controlling his every move. House, an Anglophile who had been part educated in England, was credited with swinging the 1912 Democratic Convention in Baltimore behind Wilson. [72] He became Woodrow Wilson’s constant companion from that point onwards, with his own suite of rooms in the White House. He was also in direct, sometimes daily contact with J. P. Morgan Jr, Jacob Schiff, Paul Warburg, and Democrat Senators who sponsored the Federal Reserve Bill. [73]

Colonel Edward Mandell House

Mandell House guided the President in every aspect of foreign and domestic policy, chose his Cabinet and formulated the first policies of his new Administration. [74] He was the prime intermediary between the President and his Wall Street backers. [75] The Anglo-centric Money Power had complete control of the White House and finally established its central bank in time for the secret elite’s war.

Ponder the significance of this coincidence. Provided with huge sums of secret elite money rerouted via St Petersburg, French politicians, newspapers and journalists were effectively corrupted to elect the Revanchist warmonger candidate Raymond Poincare to the Presidency of France. By February 1913, two major powers, the United States and France, had new Presidents who were elected to office through the machinations of the secret elite. They had positioned key players in the governments of Britain, France, and the United States and exerted immense influence over the foreign ministry in Russia.

Politics, money and power were the pillars on which the Anglo-Saxon elite would destroy Germany and take control of the world. All that was left to concoct was a reason for war.

The Kaiser’s refusal to be drawn into direct confrontation with France and Britain over crises in Morocco in 1905 and 1911 demanded a rethink. Public hysteria in Britain about spies was developed into a cottage industry, with barely literate novels and wild articles in Northcliffe’s papers portraying Germany as a dangerous warmongering nation of Huns preparing to pounce on an unsuspecting and ill-prepared Britain. Similarly in France, through blatant bribery and corruption, both the press and the Revanchistes in French politics fomented anti-German sentiment. But Germany remained stubbornly unwilling to become involved a European war.

From 1912 onwards the secret elite looked to the Balkans to provide the excuse for war. Alexander Isvolsky, their top Russian agent, had been strategically moved to Paris, from which vantage point he directed the Balkan agitation. The mix of ethnic diversity, religious animosities, political intrigue and raw nationalism was deliberately provoked into two brutal Balkan wars which in themselves could have brought about a pan-European war, but the Kaiser refused to take the bait.

Something more dramatic, more sensational, was needed. The notion propagated by many historians that world war was ‘inevitable’ or that the world ‘slid’ into war is crass. Chance was not involved. It required a complex set of manipulated events engineered by determined men to set the fuse. What remained was a spark to ignite that fuse. It came with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir-apparent to the Austrian Empire, in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914. Millions of words have been written to describe the events in Sarajevo that day, but none have ever revealed the trail of complicity that led from the gunmen back to the secret elite in London. Be certain of one thing. It was not the man who fired the bullet that caused a world war.

How to purchase Hidden History: The secret origins of the First World War by Gerry Docherty and Jim Macgregor

Thus war engulfed the known world to a degree that had no precedent. Histories have been written to explain away the reasons why, histories that favored the victors and twisted the truth to blame Germany. How history has been manipulated, how evidence has been removed, burned, shredded or otherwise denied to genuine researchers remains a crime against truth, against humanity. The received history of the First World War is a deliberately concocted lie. Not the sacrifice, the heroism, the horrendous waste of life or the misery that followed. No, these were very real, but the truth of how it all began and how it was unnecessarily and deliberately prolonged beyond 1915 has been successfully covered up for a century.

Professor Quigley stated,

“No country that values its safety should allow what the Milner group accomplished – that is, that a small number of men would be able to wield such power in administration and politics, should be given almost complete control over the publication of documents relating to their actions, should be able to exercise such influence over the avenues of information that create public opinion, and should be able to monopolize so completely the writing and the teaching of the history of their own period.” [76]

Never were truer words uttered in dire warning. These Founding Fathers, the secret elite, began with Rhodes’ secret society and expanded across the Atlantic, always away from the public eye. They were deniers of democracy, men who always pursued their own malevolent agenda, who used this very process to advance their power. What they achieved in causing the First World War was but the first step in their long term drive to a new world order.

Gerry Docherty
is a former head teacher. Jim Macgregor was a family doctor. They took early retirement and worked full time together for the past five years researching and writing Hidden History, The Secret Origins of the First World War – described at the Edinburgh International Book Festival as a “fascinating and incendiary book”. It reveals how historical accounts of the war’s origins have been falsified to conceal the guilt of the secret cabal of rich and powerful men (described in this article) and explains their manipulations and deceptions.

Scientology, Cult Sociopathology, and the Many Masks of the Hollywood Elite

“We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe; the record may seem superficial, but it is indelible. You cannot educate a man wholly out of the superstitious fears which were implanted in his imagination, no matter how utterly his reason may reject them.” -Oliver Wendel Holmes

Going Clear Scientology Book Cover

Recently, I’ve been reading a book that I’d been waiting to pop up on a Half Price book shelf, ever since I saw the author speak at a book signing event a couple years ago. The title of the book is Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by local Austin writer, Lawrence Wright. At one point, the book shot to #4 on the New York Times Best Sellers List for Non-Fiction, which is an astounding achievement for a book that digs deeply into a notoriously litigious and quite often dangerously vindictive cult. Now, award-winning director, Alex Gibney, has turned it into a documentary to air on HBO. Scientology has targeted just about any investigative reporter, whether they hailed from the National Inquirer, Newsweek, or Time Magazine with libel suits, harassment, intimidation, surveillance, and any number of other tactics from their bag of dirty tricks. So, it is with admiration and amazement that such a high-profile author as Lawrence Wright, who had previously won a Pulitzer for his book The Looming Tower about the 9/11 hijackers wrote this detailed account of Scientology. As he said during the talk I saw, he has been primarily interested in the nature of belief systems (particularly fanatical and fundamental styles of belief) that cause them to go to extreme lengths, including willing to die, in order to promulgate them the world over.

As you’re probably aware, it all began with an eccentric, insatiably driven, prolific author, and charismatic megalomaniac/conman by the name of L. Ron Hubbard, who was the infamous founder of Scientology just as he’s spoken of as a god by Scientologists, ever since he died back in 1986. This sea-faring adventurer was a voracious writer of stories of all kinds, an experimental technological tinkerer, con artist, a womanizer, and could be a tyrannical perfectionist willing to smash to bits all who dared get in his way or unwilling to do things his way. With any controversial figure, it’s extremely difficult to separate the man from the myth, the fact from the legend, especially when much of the myth and legend was printed by L.R. Hubbard himself. The truth, however, often lies somewhere in the middle between the demi-god that Hubbard was fashioned into by the church and the complete degenerate asshole that his staunch enemies would paint him as. However, by most accounts, L. Ron Hubbard was his own worst enemy in the end, when you fully consider the sordid saga of his rise to notoriety through a kind of ruthless paranoia and perfectionism that was able to create a fanatical following among his people. This handful of followers were no doubt taken by his cocksure bravado, imagined self-importance, and desire to clear themselves of their own characteristic shortcomings through the so-called E-Meter auditing sessions that they felt would eventually “clear them of suppressive behavior” (SP) as Hubbard called it. Plus, the radical experimentation with novel and bizarre religious beliefs were at their peak in the late 1960s and early 70s when the church of Scientology really took off in terms of numbers.

L.Ron Hubbard

However, according to L. Ron Hubbard’s own son, Scientology was merely another scheme and ruse of Hubbard’s to make money by starting his own religion…or at least what passed for one using its own unique abbreviations and linguistic mysticisms in their lavishly furnished offices around the world. Hubbard’s particular pseudo-psychological psychobabble was tailor made for those wannabe actors, screenwriters, directors, singers, and entertainers of all stripes trying desperately to gain an edge over their formidable competition to become “known” in showbiz. Scientology was new, high tech, glamorous, hip, and above all knew how to cater to the shallow insecurities of Hollywood celebrities, who would eventually become its biggest spokesmen over the years. Naturally, if you actually rise through the OT ranks in order to gain their so-called secret wisdom to learn what Scientology claims is the origin of humanity to OTIII, it’s absolutely hysterical as the awesome show South Park depicted it. However, even the fearless satirical show of South Park would pay the price of losing Issac Hayes (who played Chef) given that he was a Scientologist along with Comedy Central and the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, being spied upon for a potential smear campaign that is like trying to smear shit on snot.

Now, we know that the church of Scientology uses coercion, threats, intimidation, beatings, blackmail, and even imprisonment in what’s known as the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF). In what was a watershed moment for the church, a major raid was conducted by the FBI in 1977, when they learned about what is known as Operation Snow White. Just what, exactly, was Operation Snow White? Apparently, on April 20th, 1973, L. Ron Hubbard wrote a secret order codenamed “Snow White”. Its goal, in part, was to find as many damning files in government intelligence offices that it felt was being used in order to suppress the church from further expansion. Hubbard tasked the Guardian’s Office with this special mandate that included intelligence gathering, filing lawsuits to intimidate opponents, and attacking mental health professionals. According to the book Going Clear, in just “a few years, as many as five thousand Scientologists were covertly placed in 136 government agencies worldwide. Project Grumpy, for instance, covered Germany, where the Guardian’s Office was set up to infiltrate Interpol as well as German police and immigration authorities. In addition, there was a scheme to accuse German critics of the church of committing genocide. Project Sleepy was to clear files in Austria; Happy was for Denmark, Bashful for Belgium, and Dopey for Italy.” Given how extensive were the operations against Germany, it’s little wonder that the government moved to ban them at one point from the country for being a subversive cult rather than a religion.

Seven Dwarfs Target Game

Wright continues with, “Projects Witch and Stepmother both targeted the UK, the source of Scientology’s immigration problems. Project Hunter was the United States, where Scientologists penetrated the IRS, the Justice, Treasury, and Labor Departments, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Drug Enforcement Administration, as well as foreign embassies and consulates…” They also infiltrated several newspapers that were critical of Scientology in the past including the Washington Post. It didn’t end there, however, as Wright describes how- “In an evident attempt at blackmail, they stole the LA IRS intelligence files of celebrities and political figures, including California governor Jerry Brown, LA mayor Tom Bradley, and Frank Sinatra. Nothing in American history can compare with the scale of domestic espionage of Operation Snow White.” [Italics my emphasis]

When the FBI raided what was called the Scientology’s Advanced Org building in Los Angeles, they were shocked at what they found down in the darkened corridors of the basement. As Wright describes it, “They found a warren of cubicles, each occupied by half a dozen people dressed in black boiler suits and wearing filthy rags around their arms to indicate their degraded status. Altogether, about 120 people were huddled in the pitch-black basement, serving time in the Rehabilitation Project Force. The ranks of the RPF had expanded along with the church’s need for cheap labor to renovate its recently purchased buildings in Hollywood. The federal agents had no idea what they were seeing. Within moments, a representative of the church’s Guardian’s Office arrived and began shouting at the agents that they were exceeding the limits of their search warrants. Seeing that the Sea Org members posed no threat to them, the agents shrugged and moved on. It is instructive to realize that none of the Sea Org members consigned to the RPF dungeon took the opportunity to escape. If the FBI had bothered to interrogate them, it’s unlikely that any of them would have said that they were there against their will.”

They were what you could truly call “dyed in the wool” believers and would therefore never leave. However, even if they wanted to leave, fear of reprisal and severe punishment by the church hierarchy was often enough to prevent them attempting escape. Once L. Ron Hubbard died in 1986, the current head of the church took over and is certainly the most feared of all in the church hierarchy…David Miscavige. According to whistle-blower accounts of Scientology by defectors, Miscavige makes up for any lack of charm and charisma that L. Ron Hubbard had through his penchant for sadistic terror and unpredictable rage at his underlings. Although he showed sociopathological behavior early on (at one point even beating up his Pre-Clear auditor when he was only 13-years-old), David advanced quickly through the ranks of the Sea Org due to his energy and commitment to Scientology. He credited the church with curing his asthma, even though it really never did. Regardless, he joined the Sea Org at 16 and was thought to have filled the spot that might have typically been reserved for Hubbard’s son Quentin. Wright aptly describes Miscavige (who you can see in a very rare interview back in 1992 on Ted Koppel’s Nightline) as, “tough, tireless, and doctrinaire.”

David Miscavige Photo

However, most of the public knows Scientology not by its head figure, David Miscavige, or even by its patron saint and founder L. Ron Hubbard but rather by some of their more glassy-eyed followers that have achieved a degree of fame. The most conspicuous and fanatical follower is, of course, Tom Cruise. Probably next on that list would be John Travolta, who began going to Scientology before he became a household name with TV sitcoms like “Welcome Back Kotter” and movies like “Saturday Night Fever”. Besides these two, however, are many other celebrities of varying degrees of fame, who have walked through the doors of Scientology at one point or another. Some of those that kept coming back and no doubt spending a small fortune in the process were such notables as Priscilla Presley, Kirstie Alley, and director Paul Haggis. Scientology, like Hollywood, breeds the in the murky waters of the desire for omnipotence and its attendant self-importance and vanity. Both are, likewise, a carefully crafted illusion that reflect nothing nothing except perhaps the hollow desperation of their respective beliefs.

The Academy Awards are emblematic of the vacuousness of fame where actors’ innate need for admiration and attention, given to a politically select few decided upon by other actors and directors, make up the Academy. The pomp and sanctimonious gala is mediated through the exchange of little golden idols called Oscars that represent in miniature what the actors hoped to be all along, the object of worship for millions in this country and the rest of the world. For Scientology, the illusion of its promise takes on a far more dangerous imprimatur beginning with its students signing a contract for “a billion years of service” to the church of Scientology. At what point, one may ask, does the illusionary masks worn by both thespian and Scientology alike become the master of the persona and not merely another face fitting the function of the occasion?

One of the stranger phenomenons that I’ve noticed is actors affiliated with Scientology being in a disproportionate number of movies where the mask has been a major motif. Think about it. John Travolta in the movie “Face Off”. Tom Cruise in “Vanilla Sky”, “Mission Impossible”, and the incredibly beguiling “Eyes Wide Shut”. All had depictions of masks as literal and symbolic manifestations within the movie that were key elements in the plot. What might be the significance of the mask symbolism to those within Scientology, given what we know about its inherent duplicity and ability to hide from public scrutiny behind the celebrity faces that make up its roster of adherents? Hollywood, as we’ve come to learn from former child actors like Corey Feldman and his late best friend Corey Haim, hides a dark secret behind the glitz and glamor in front of the camera. As a previous post that I wrote alluded to an interview Feldman gave and perhaps elaborates in his autobiography “Coreyography”, there are a few major Hollywood moguls, directors, and actors that are known to be pedophiles. He wouldn’t comment in terms of names, but there are some clues as to who they might be that were we to follow up on them might lead us to their door. At that point, as the FBI clearly isn’t going to do anything about it, we might as well give “To Catch A Predator” a call.

Putting the Mask On


The Need for a New Black Consciousness in an Era Plagued by Thugs on Both Sides of the Racial Divide

Frederic Douglas

In light of the events of Ferguson, MO, I would like to take this time to write about some of my views regarding black radicalism, police brutality, and the necessity for a revival of a strong “black consciousness” in America…an aspect of which is a new found black militancy. Given how thoroughly dumbed-down, manipulated, and reactionary the current dialogue on race politics is in the media, it is high time that we look back on the African American experience with a sharp eye focused on what could be described as radical voices by today’s PC standards but are very worthy and necessary in understanding just what is going on today in the major cities of this country, where black people are actually worse off than they were some 50 years ago. Therefore, let us begin with a quote by the influential black intellectual and writer, James Baldwin, who wrote these words to his 14-year-old nephew:

“You were born where you were born and faced the future that you faced because you were black and for no other reason. The limits to your ambition were thus expected to be settled. You were born into a society which spelled out with brutal clarity and in as many ways as possible that you were a worthless human being. You were not expected to aspire to excellence. You were expected to make peace with mediocrity.”

Certainly, this 2nd class citizenship continues today in a climate more rife with racial antagonisms than ever before. Besides racial hatreds that have persisted, albeit in perhaps more covert and hidden forms, what has changed since the Civil Rights era in black peoples’ relationship with the police? Well, for one thing, the police have become much more of a para-military force now and (thanks in large part to the Obama administration) have military-grade equipment and a wide assortment of so-called non-lethal weapons that they can use on violent or peaceful protestors, as you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ut3xsdkIWhg

As you’re no doubt aware, immediately following the Darren Wilson (no indictment verdict)…the mostly black suburb of Ferguson, Missouri outside of St. Louis went up in flames with mass looting, shooting, and destruction of businesses and government buildings. However, the black teenager, Michael Brown, wasn’t exactly a poster child for good black citizenry. In fact, all indications showed him to be an amoral thug, who was even caught on video camera shortly before he was shot robbing a convenience store and pushing the clerk out of the way when he attempted to stop him. Later, he was reportedly walking down the middle of the street preventing traffic from moving when Wilson told him to get out of the street. Brown shouted an obscenity at the officer, and that’s when Wilson attempted to apprehend Brown. This is where accounts get fuzzy as to what occurred next. Some eye witnesses say that Michael Brown had his hands up in the air and was trying to get away when Wilson shot him. However, according to Darren Wilson’s account that apparently the grand jury agreed with, the much heavier Michael Brown attacked Wilson and tried to reach for his gun at which point Darren Wilson defended himself in the only way he believed he could and escape with his life…namely by taking Brown’s life.

Of course, arguments will naturally arise as to whether or not lethal force was even necessary at all. In other words, why couldn’t Wilson have shot him in the leg or something? Or, why didn’t he use his taser or pepper spray? Since I wasn’t there, and there isn’t any video of the encounter…we’ll likely never know for sure the details as to what really took place. However, the truth (more often than not) probably falls somewhere in the middle. What is pretty certain at this stage is that Michael Brown was a typical “thug” teenager, who like most have a sense of entitlement and like many of those in Ferguson will use any excuse to loot out of opportunism without really posing any threat to the establishment itself.

This is in sharp contrast to the Afro-Centric radicalism and departure from the white establishment that groups like the Black Panther Party represented. I was fortunate enough to meet one of the co-founders of the original Black Panther Party that started in Oakland, CA as a way to combat rampant police abuse, repression, and occupation of black neighborhoods…Mr. Bobby Seale. Along with Huey Newton, Bobby and Eldridge Cleaver’s genesis for the Black Panther Party grew out of a growing frustration among the black community to be unable to use the legal system in obtaining justice from wanton police harassment, arrest, and brutality largely just being black. Bobby Seale gave the keynote address at the “2nd Annual Police Accountability Summit” here in Austin, TX that I attended, which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRPi0UBNV-M

Black Panther Party

The Black Panther Party wasn’t just for self-defense, however, but taught black empowerment, opened up their own school to teach young black children, and even had a couple of businesses that they ran to profit the community. Again, their focus wasn’t simply on hating all white people as the New Black Panthers seem to only care about but rather to elevate the black people of their community beyond their ghetto circumstances and give them a sense of pride based on imparted self-worth and actual accomplishment. Before he was assassinated, Malcolm X also tried to point out the ways in which white society had corrupted the minds of black people into believing themselves to be inferior as you can see in this clip entitled “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?”. Unfortunately, J. Edgar Hoover launched a fierce campaign of violence and subversion against the Black Panther Party as part of the Cointel Program to neutralize what the Feds saw as threats to the American (that is to say rich white people) way of life.

COINTEL PRO Beware My Friends

Once the Black Panther Party and other Afro-Centric and militant black groups like MOVE were systematically destroyed, a new image began to emerge that is now so perverted, so vile, so thuggish, and so just plain stupid as to be diametrically opposed to everything Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X fought and were assassinated for, namely to free black people not merely from the shackles of segregation (King) and mental slavery (Malcolm) but to empower them to stand as equals among the fellowship of men and women. This is why the welfare state is so insidious to a poor black family given that it represents a new kind of slavery and servitude born out of an inability and unwillingness to raise family through gainful employment while at the same time keeping themselves tied like a baby’s umbilical cord to their new master, Uncle Sam. Much of this infantalism is now displayed with no sense of shame for all the world to see in way that previous generations would have openly mocked.

Chris Rock’s signature comedic bit seen in his HBO Special “Bring the Pain” was called “Black People vs. Niggas”. He explicates the problem quite well and humorously in this fantastic bit, since as a black man himself and a comic he’s poised to be able to speak frankly about race in a way that hardly anyone else in the limelight can. Prior to him, Richard Pryor used classic comedic bits to elucidate race in way that opened up a greater dialogue and showed how comedy alone can break down racial barriers once thought rigid. For Pryor, the word “nigger” was simply apart of the language of the black vernacular in the places he grew up in along with being an easy comedic device to generating laughs in his act. It wasn’t until he had the chance to visit Africa for the first time that his eyes and mind were opened up to seeing the use of the word “nigger” as not merely an affectionate term when used by your black friends and racist when used by white people but rather as something that black people themselves denigrate themselves with absent any white people, since it really signifies someone who is ignorant. It was a turning point in Pryor’s life for him to come to this insight, which he shared with an audience during his “Live on the Sunset Strip” performance. One of the most insightful and brilliant creations that I’ve ever seen that commented on this crisis within the American black populace to celebrate “niggerdom” (i.e. idiocy and infantile lunacy) was shown on an animated TV show called “Boondocks” in an episode that depicted what might happen were Dr. Martin Luther King to return from the dead to the modern world. Needless to say, he is thoroughly disgusted by what black people have become in the ensuing years since the Civil Rights era of the late 60s and in a moment of outrage at what he sees he speaks his mind at a party held on his behalf. The name of the episode is entitled “Return of the King”.

American History X Smoking

So, the question is, how did black people go from Richard Pryor to Tyler Perry? Or, from Marvin Gaye to Kanye West? Or, worse still Lil’ John? Black people have always been musical innovators from the early pioneers of Rock N’ Roll with Chuck Berry and Little Richard to the Soul Music of James Brown and Aretha Franklin to the great Blues musicians of Muddy Waters, B.B. King, and Robert Johnson…American music has always been filled with great black musicians. Now, it’s so-called hip-hop and rap that dominate the airwaves and what most black people listen to. However, the rap of today is a far cry from the early pioneers of rap that came to the fore in the late 70s and early 80s. Rappers like Grand Master Flash, RUN-DMC, and the Sugar Hill Gang were mixing funk and rock riffs and beats to lyrics that spoke to traditional themes of ghetto hardships, black empowerment, or simply having a good time spitting rhymes. Now, it’s dominated by thug posers like 50 Cent, big ass whores like Nikki Minaj, moronic hood rats like Lil’ John, and greed-obsessed exhibitionists like Jay-Z. This can’t be the best that black musicians have to offer, can’t it?

Professor Griff of Public Enemy would say that it is nothing short of conspiracy in order to lead the black man astray down the path of self-imposed ignorance, degradation, exploitation, and ultimately ruin in attempting to live out the opulent and extravagant fantasies show in rap videos these days. And, I’m inclined to believe that there’s probably some truth to that along with most of the stupid music industry following whatever moronic trend that’s going on at the time. One could certainly make the case for gangsta rap having started the trend back in the 80s, especially once the crack cocaine epidemic hit Los Angeles. Anyone wanting to know how crack was introduced into neighborhoods like Compton should read former San Jose Mercury News reporter Gary Webb’s work, who shows how it was a CIA operation was part of the war with the Sandinista rebels in Nicaragua to funnel cocaine into this country and guns into Central America. So, we can trace at least the crack explosion to the CIA. But, what about the music industry? One way to follow the narrative would be to look at what happens when rappers like Tupac, who’s mother was a member of the Black Panther Party, attempts to shed light on the suppression and oppression of black people. He’s killed on the Las Vegas strip, and nobody is indicted for his murder? Or, how about the career of the sublimely beautiful Lauren Hill? Granted, she was chastised for taking the time to raise her son, but then she came to realize that she didn’t want any part of what she had correctly deemed as a wicked and corrupt industry along with much of the rest of the world as you can see her discuss in this revelatory Def Poetry recital.

So, we’ve come full circle now. From the LA riots after the Rodney King verdict in 1992 to the riots in Ferguson after the “no indictment” of Darren Wilson, expressions of rage against the police (whether justified or not) certainly shouldn’t be directed against businesses in your own community, where even black owned businesses were trashed. They should be directed against the police, their headquarters, and other government officials like the mayor, chief of police, and state representatives that you believe are oppressing your people. After all, it’s people like the governor that are bringing in the national guard against you not the corner liquor store owner. Besides, do you really want to be shot for stealing a pair of Nike sneakers or a bottle of Johnny Walker Black? Killed for mindless consumerism? To be a revolutionary means not accepting how the established order defines you, and what could be more status quo than keeping people identifying themselves as “consumers” of products made by Third World wage slaves many of whom are black? Liberation politics means a revolution of ideas, and the idea that I am proposing (which as a white guy I realize isn’t PC to propose but I’m doing it anyway) is that black people adopt some revolutionary ideas for someone in your impoverished condition.

That is- “Empower yourself by educating yourself (read to your kids), black men start actually raising your children as fathers and supporting the family you helped create, get off welfare completely, stop blaming white people for all of your problems as most of them are your own creation, learn to start your own businesses and manage your own money (there’s more to finance than shiny rims after all), understand how to be civil and honorable, take pride in your accomplishments instead of having an attitude of entitlement (you don’t deserve reparations because you were never a slave), and stop glorifying and celebrating the most depraved, ego-centric, and criminal aspects of a corrupted corporate culture.” Once you do that, you can now begin the long struggle back up to the top of that fabled mountaintop that Dr. King talked about and certainly didn’t end with an Uncle Tom getting into the White House. I’ll end with the man Ossie Davis rightly described as “our shining black prince”, Mr. Malcolm X speaking about why black people shouldn’t trust the house negro, many of whom you’ll see in the US government. I can certainly think of a few…can you?

The Secret Life of Barack Obama: The Making of a Manchurian Candidate for President

Obama Kissing Man*

Given what I can only assume many people will perceive as an overtly partisan attack, let me assure you (dear readers) that I am an equal opportunity offender and do attack the GOP as much as I do the DNC. However, if you are at all familiar with the philosophy of this blog, you’ll know that I consider the so-called “Left” and “Right” paradigm to be merely two sides of the same totalitarian coin. The only difference between the two major US political parties is whether you want a more Fabian-socialist style of government with the Democrats or would prefer the more corporatist-fascism style with the Republicans. However, as you’ll soon see, even those narrow ideological lines are blurring to the point of total irrelevance these days. So, with that in mind, let’s examine what Chris Hedges calls the “cult of personality” of Barack Obama. [*Note: The picture above is photo shopped, but the sentiment is not far from the mark as you’ll come to see in the course of this article.]

The first thing that comes to mind with regards to Barack Hussein Obama is how seemingly “out of nowhere” and quickly his star rose, from being a three-term Illinois State Senator to then becoming a one term US Senator of Illinois to running a hugely successful presidential campaign just a short 4 years later. Having slogged through 8 long and tortuous years of Bush W’s idiotic butchering of Iraqi citizens, constitutional liberties in the post 9/11 hysteria, and the English language (to name just a few of the many travesties that befell this nation during the dark and fearful days of the Bush Administration)- it’s perhaps wholly understandable why so many people got “Obama fever” in the waning days of 2008. However, this fanaticism and overwrought emotionalism (seen most prominently in the young and minority groups of America that could most readily identify with Obama’s inspiring optimistic oratory) should have been recognized as the bullshit political rhetoric that it most certainly was. At the very least, it should have been met with the kind of realistic suspicion and scrutiny that all campaign talk must be met with, since we ought to know all too well how much politicians lie to garner votes.

In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a politician that doesn’t lie to the point where it has become difficult to catch one of them actually tell any kind of truth. And yet, most Americans fell head over heels in love with their own smug sense of progress-ism in thinking that surely hokey slogans like “Hope” and “Yes, We Can” actually meant something beyond the empty, hollow sloganeering that they always were. As comic Doug Stanhope has pointed out in regards to the fact of Barack Obama being the first black president, it’s just “trivia” and nothing more. “It’s like the first midget bull rider.” However, trivia and certainly novelty are really all it takes to capture peoples’ imaginations to the point of cult-like obsession, and nobody in recent political memory has been able to mesmerize the public quite like Obama has been able to.

Nope Bumber Sticker

It’s only been within the last couple of years that some of the more starry and teary-eyed deluded “Obamanites” have begun to wake up to the fact that Obama might have promised “Change”, but his administration has only given us more of the same…and, in some cases, even worse than his predecessor. After all, despite his campaign promises to close down Guantanamo, it is still an open wound from the black bag operations of the Bush regime, where the US has embarked on the longest multiple theater war in its history. Secret courts without the need for evidence, water-boarding and other forms of torture, indefinite detentions, and covert assassinations are still being carried out with impunity and in numbers that actually far exceed those of the Bush years.

Add to this already sordid indictment a trenchant war being waged against whistle-blowers, journalists, and dissidents that (as I’ve discussed in previous articles) can even get you killed, and it should be obvious to anyone with half a brain that there is no hope with this blowhard of business-as-usual. After all, even after some of the worst trampling of constitutional rights from the Patriot Act and the Military Commission’s Act during the Bush years, the Obama regime has gone one step further in draconian fascism by making it legal for the president to assassinate an American citizen merely for being suspected of being a terrorist with the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Furthermore, there were also a lot more killings of innocent civilians in far-flung places like Yemen and Pakistan from the use of military drones, which aren’t nearly as surgical in their devastation as the Pentagon would have us believe. I could go on and on, but I can only assume that most of you don’t need anymore of a history lesson to convince you on the duplicitous record of Barack Hussein Obama. So, let’s turn our attention to some of the more hidden aspects of his presidency.

Obama with Cabinet

Jerome Corsi of World Net Daily and others have made much noise concerning the “birth certificate” controversy. Personally, I find it hard to comprehend how Obama’s reputed birth certificate can be looked at as anything but an obvious forgery. However, assuming for a moment that it is legit, one wonders just why Obama’s team of lawyers would feel the need to spend literally millions of dollars fighting in court from ever having to release his long-form birth certificate, if (in fact) they have nothing to hide and then finally releasing something that so many experts agree is a forgery. So, we’ll simply have to wait until the final verdict is in on that one, but (were I to guess) I’d say that he was probably born in Kenya. Be that as it may, let’s move on to what I believe is a more controversial and damning evidence of his pedigree. Barack Obama might have inherited his biological father’s name (Barack Obama Sr.), but early on after his mother Stanley Ann Dunham married Lolo Soetoro…Barack was known as Barry Soetoro growing up in Indonesia and later Hawaii. It is interesting to note that both his mother and stepfather, Lolo, were in the employ of the CIA through their work with the USAID, which is an intelligence gathering front for the agency and (in the case of Lolo) as a covert operative in Indonesia.

So, Barack’s (a.k.a. Barry’s) childhood years were spent moving through the serpentine and clandestine diplomatic channels of an intelligence front, and he would later be groomed like a Manchurian Candidate by these same CIA men and other powerful players like the Chicago business elite to become president, since these men don’t just appear out of nowhere but are chosen through a prolonged vetting process that takes many years. Here is where it takes a decidedly twisted turn in my view. According to a former classmate of Barry’s when he was attending an elite private school in Honolulu, Hawaii- Obama was known throughout the school among his circle of friends and others associated with the school as being a complete fag. He could even be heard bragging about scoring bags of coke from having had sex with older white men, and this didn’t even faze this former classmate as much as the fact that he was also known as a pathological liar. So, here we have a report (that while doesn’t constitute proof is certainly telling hearsay evidence) of Obama being 1) A Homosexual and 2) A Pathological Liar. The natural question is- “Is there any corroboration to this story?” Based on my research, I would give a categorical “yes”. However, former classmates and close confidants of Barack Obama are hard to come by, as are a lot of mysteries surrounding his past, and I would argue that this opaqueness alone should be cause for concern coming from an individual that proclaims to want greater transparency in government.

One of the researchers that has looked deeply into this murky past is Webster Tarpley, who published an unauthorized biography of Barack Obama. Listen to a little of what he has to say about this man’s history and true character, and you get a much more damning indictment than anything the mainstream media is ever going to give you from their largely lapdog press. According to Tarpley, one of Obama’s mentors at Columbia University was Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was the chairman of the infamous Trilateral Commission under the financial backing of international plutocrat and psychopathic global manipulator…David Rockefeller. It was Brzezinski and the Trilateral Group that put Jimmy Carter into the White House, where he was made the National Security Adviser. And, he was a primary driver of the Afghan war against the Soviets during the 80’s using radical Islamic fundamentalists called the muhajadeen that we now claim are Al-Qaeda terrorists even though they’re a total CIA creation at best. Understand, I don’t care if he’s a mixed race black guy. And, I don’t even care that he’s a homosexual. On this latter point, however, it makes for a sensational choking point for blackmailing this black male…wouldn’t you say? The most publicized outing of Barack Obama came from Larry Sinclair, who convened a National Press Club conference back in 2008 to discuss how he performed fellatio on the then Sen. Obama back in 1999 after he snorted cocaine while Obama smoked crack!

Larry Sinclair

Since Obama was seen smoking crack, he thought it rather disingenuous for Obama to claim that he never did hardcore illicit drugs like cocaine. Of course, the MSM completely trashed Larry Sinclair through a typical character assassination effort, since he had an unrelated warrant. There have always been rumors and stories of congressmen and other high-level officials being kept in check and manipulated from dissenting against powerful interests through so-called “honey traps” that can include pictures showing an official engaged in sex outside his marriage with a prostitute, with someone of the same sex, and even with underage children as documented by the excellent suppressed documentary Conspiracy of Silence that was yanked from being aired because its investigations into pedophilia rings reached all the way to the White House and Capitol Hill. In fact, recently an investigation proved that there are many government employees and high-level bureaucrats working in the halls of the Pentagon, who were trafficking in child pornography to the point that it was thought to be imperiling our national security.

Needless to say, all of this should be “front page” news in a so-called democratic society, but it’s not. Instead, the media are largely enamored of Obama and his phony liberalism. However, ever since the corrupt failures of his banker bailouts during the crash of 2008, the fake bin Laden raid, the intrusive debacle of Obamacare, his continued coverup of the Benghazi raid, and his assault on various constitutional liberties (especially the 2nd Amendment)…we have gotten our “wake up call” as to what Obama’s real domestic agenda really is all about.

Lastly, if Obama is really a closet homosexual, he’d probably hate having to feign interest in his wife, Michelle…right? Obviously! However, this could all be averted if Michelle was really a man! Regardless of what you think of this very telling and quite thoughtful Youtube video that I think makes a cogent case, you have to at least admit that Michelle has very man-ish features. The broad manly shoulders, the bulging biceps, the longer ring finger, the clearly protruding Adam’s apple, what appears to be the outline of her dick in a dress (see picture below), etc. all point to this “she” being a “he”. If this is really a woman, she has to be one of the most masculine First Ladies ever to stroll through the Oval Office. However, on the other hand, if I’m right and Michelle should more properly be called “Michael”, then it explains quite a bit and seems to confirm what Barack’s former classmates and contemporaries have already said about him being a flaming homosexual, habitual drug user, and a pathological liar. However, don’t take my word on it. Judge for yourself by looking closely at the evidence that I’ve presented in the links provided for this article, and you can come to your own informed decision. Suffice to say, there’s a hell of a lot more than meets the eye with the president these days, and, in the case of Barack Obama, I’m sure there’s plenty of people, who would just assume to not even know the truth about his secret life.

Railroaded: The Trials, Populism, Brutal Honesty, Imprisonment and Redemption of Rep. James Traficant

Traficant on the Congressional Floor

In my previous article, I wrote about reporters, insiders, researchers, and various whistle-blowers of one stripe or another, who paid the ultimate price for attempting to tell us (the American public) the truth about corruption, malfeasance, and coverups in high places. Rest assured, the powers that be (sociopaths and psychopaths that they are) have no qualms about killing someone or even large numbers of people in order to squash a bombshell truth from being released and then predictably calling it an accident or a suicide. However, there are occasions when the figure in question is simply what you could call a nuisance and outspoken “troublemaker” or radical critic of government overreach even within the corridors of power itself. And, when this occurs, there are often less deadly ways of getting rid of them.

So, for instance, if they can’t be bribed, cajoled, or blackmailed by people above them…they might simply be fired and their homes ransacked the way former NSA whistle-blower Thomas Drake was after he protested their unconstitutional domestic spying operations before the Ed Snowden leaks became common knowledge. Or, perhaps they’ll be drug through a long, arduous, and costly legal battle the way former Assistant Secretary of HUD (Housing and Urban Development), Catherine Austin Fitts, was for attempting to audit her department’s fraudulent financial statements. Fortunately, she was able to finally win her case and eventually learn about how departmental agencies such as hers were being used as slush funds for CIA black budget operations…legally!

If you’re in the US Congress, you’re expected to play the game of mindless ineptitude, corporate graft, and other partisan “business as usual” bullshit so indicative of life on Capitol Hill. You’re obviously not supposed to cause too much consternation and problems for the Pentagon, the FBI, the CIA, the IRS, or any other ingrained and entrenched bureaucracy of US imperial empire. However, a few intrepid souls do just that, and that’s when the heat comes down on their heads whether they expect it or not. For Rep. James Traficant, it was perhaps only a matter of time and opportunity as to when the Department of Justice (a misnomer if there ever was one) went after him on bogus, trumped-up charges of bribery, racketeering, and tax evasion until they had him in front of a congressional ethics committee fighting not only for his seat in the House but to remain a free man.

It was a fight that he unfortunately lost, and he was forced to serve 7 years in a federal penitentiary beginning in 2002. However, it’s what led up to his railroading out of the US Congress and imprisonment that interest me and hopefully you, since his case is very instructive in many ways. Interestingly enough, Jim Traficant gained significant notoriety for successfully representing himself in a RICO case where he was accused of taking bribes from the mob that he maintained was part of an investigatory sting operation. As the city’s tough no nonsense Sheriff of Mahoning County, Traficant was popular with his solid working-class constituents, especially when he refused to evict people from their homes after severe economic conditions created a lot home foreclosures. Jim Traficant decided to run for a US congressional seat in the Youngstown district and won. He quickly became a pariah on the Hill for his brash comments often hilariously aimed at his congressional colleagues.

Once, after being trounced on the floor of the House by fellow Congressmen for his style and manner, he walked to the podium and proclaimed- “As far as I’m concerned, you’re all a bunch of political prostitutes!” This caused a scandal that echoed through the halls of the capitol like a donkey having sex with an elephant (which has fascinating political implications all it’s own). The normally sedate House was suddenly aroused sufficiently from its intellectual slumber to stir itself into a combination of confusion as to what exactly he had said and anger over what some had actually heard. When he was corned outside by reporters, one news stringer asked him pointedly, “Tell us how you really feel, Sheriff.” He very sardonically replied, “I’d like to apologize to all the hookers of America for associating them with the US House…” So, you’ve got to the love the guy just for his sharp humorous wit, and it would be often in his career when humor alone would seem to alleviate the seriousness of the charges leveled against him.

Over the years, he would tackle some very thorny and controversial issues with his characteristic bravado, swagger, and brutal honesty. During the Clinton years, he would make a lifelong enemy of Attorney General Janet Reno and the FBI by vehemently criticizing their catastrophic debacle at Waco and Ruby Ridge (as I profiled in an earlier post). Both Ruby Ridge, where the FBI killed Randy Weaver’s wife as she held her infant in the doorway, and Waco, where the Branch Davidian compound was burned to the ground after Bradley tanks shot CS gas into the building that easily ignited, were public relations disasters for the FBI. However, for all their bluster, coverups, corruption, and now mass homicide, very little was done to actually punish the guilty parties responsible and rein in the abuse of the FBI, along with what some saw as heavy handed assaults on the US citizens’ liberty. By being one of the FBI’s staunchest critic to anyone that would listen, Traficant was no doubt “Public Enemy #1” within the US Congress and very likely targeted in a covert effort to entrap him in some kind of scandal.

Targeted- James Traficant

He also went after the hated IRS and their fraudulent wage garnishments, property leins, and home seizures, particularly since their jackboot tactics and audits were ruining peoples’ lives. According to Jim Traficant, the thing that he is most proud of is passing a bill with then Texas Congressman Bill Archer, which puts the burden of proof of tax liability on the IRS rather than on the citizen. This single piece of legislation was able to reduce the number of houses seized by the IRS from 10,073 down to 57 in one year!! Given that the IRS is really the enforcement arm of the Federal Reserve that supplies the Treasury with “notes” that it expects to receive interest on, the US government uses the IRS to collect on the debt that it creates every time it borrows money and then fleeces the public to pay back. As the late, great Aaron Russo once said about IRS (an acronym), “It Really Sucks!” So, anytime anyone in government does something to rein in the IRS besides merely protecting Wall Street crooks in hiding their money in off-shore accounts…I applaud them.

The next potentially grave enemy that Jim Traficant made was with the state of Israel and the very powerful lobby AIPAC (American Israeli Political Affairs Committee). While you might not have ever heard of AIPAC, the truth is that America’s unwavering allegiance, support, and loyalty to Israel in the face of global criticism for their treatment of the Palestinians is no accident. It is the result of powerful lobbies such as AIPAC, Mossad spy infiltration of the US, and other Zionist front groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and B’nai B’rith. One point of major controversy in the already contentious career of Rep. Jim Traficant came when a family approached him and asked that he look into a case that they were fighting on behalf of a man that had been charged with being a prisoner guard at one of the Nazi concentration camps during WWII.

The Israelis claimed that he worked at Treblinka and was known as “Ivan the Terrible”, based on his sadistic enjoyment of torturing the prisoners there. However, the family told Trafficant that this man, who went by the name of John Demjanjuk, was not “Ivan the Terrible” as the Israelis had claimed. According to photos that the family showed Traficant of both Demjanjuk and “Ivan the Terrible”, there was a prominent scar on the neck of the Ukrainian guard but not on Demjanjuk’s. The family of Demjanjuk had told Jim that they approached him last about it because they knew how much the Congress hated him, but they didn’t know where else to turn as everybody else in the House and Senate had turned down their request to look into the case. Traficant was sufficiently convinced of their case that he took the evidence to Tel Aviv and presented it to the Israeli Supreme Court, who finally agreed that Demjanjuk was not the right guy and (to their credit) released him from prison into Traficant’s custody on a plane back to the US. For this act of courage and justice, he was smeared by the press as someone who, to even care about the case, was thought to have “anti-Semitic blood”.

Demjanjuk in Israeli Court

I heard about all this one night while watching C-SPAN back in early 2001 before 9/11 would irrevocably change the world and political landscape. Jim Traficant recounted many stories he had had throughout his colorful career at Cleveland’s City Club, and I’ve still got most of his talk on VHS tape somewhere (see the whole hour long speech archived by C-SPAN in the hyperlink to follow). It’s still a great talk, full of interesting anecdotes, humorous asides, and emotional statements like “What happened to America? What is America? Do people still govern here? I think not. The government is coming after people, and this needs to stop.” Shortly after 9/11, he would be charged in the House with breaking the rules of the Ethics Committee by accepting money through his staffers that the House claimed he was unable to account for. These hearings were also largely televised on C-SPAN, and I recorded all the ones that I could as I knew at the time that they were really the result of what he had been talking about before.

When his case went before a judge in an Ohio criminal court, he wasn’t even allowed to cross examine the so-called witnesses against him that he later found out were pressured by the FBI to give false testimony. He also wasn’t allowed to bring in his own witnesses and evidence that would clearly have exonerated him in the eyes of the jury and was essentially convicted in a kangaroo court, where a grave miscarriage of justice served him into an 7-year prison sentence. However, now that he’s out, he continues to fight the good fight against what he sees is criminal corruption within the White House, court system, FBI, and US Congress among other usual suspects on shows like Greta van Sustern and Alex Jones. And, to top it all off, he even ran for his old congressional seat, which would have been another first. I can see the headlines now- “Ex-Felon James Traficant Wins Old Seat in the House next to Soon to Be Felons”. Now, you know just about the only guy that I would consider voting for. Traficant for President in 2016!

Martyred in the Name of Truth (A Short List of Para-Political Murders) Part 1

John Lennon We Live in a World

In annals of para-politics, there have been many researchers, journalists, politicians, hackers, and various whistle-blowers of governmental/corporate malfeasance and corruption that have been “suicided” (to use a CIA term). This means that, in the process of uncovering massive corruption, cover ups, or otherwise earth-shaking information, they were murdered by the powers that be (often in a black-ops style hit), and the death was summarily ruled a suicide by the subsequent investigation, which is usually the final cover up of whatever explosive information the victim was planning on revealing.

One could make a very convincing argument that for agencies like the CIA assassination has been perfected through decades of practice so extensively…that making a murder look like a suicide or at the least controlling the investigation into it has become standard operating procedure. After all, there are quite a lot of ways to kill somebody these days and make it look like an accident or suicide. You can be thrown from a high rise building the way biological scientist Frank Olsen or Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal were. You can be given cancer or a heart attack via an injection or poisonous dart the way that Oswald’s killer, Jack Ruby, or even probably musical revolutionary, Bob Marley, were quite likely killed.

Of course, the easiest way to kill someone and make it look like a suicide is simply with a gunshot to the head. The problem is when there’s more than one fatal shot or when the gun that’s claimed to be the one used during the suicide doesn’t even have any fingerprints from the victim on it and/or the ballistics don’t match as in the notoriously suspicious Vince Foster case. And, therein lies the rub (if you’ll pardon the rather mafia-like pun). For the people below, these mysterious coincidences pile up one on top of another, quite often to the point that it becomes damn near impossible to deny that they weren’t murdered for what they were about to reveal. After all, what they had already revealed was pretty juicy to the erstwhile conspiracy researcher and intolerable to the power elite.

Taken individually, they mean next to nothing…just another person dead in the obituary column of life’s long procession line to the grave. However, looked at not only in context but also the frequency at which these strange deaths invariably occur, these murders that are ruled a suicide or an accident become something that suggests something far more sinister than one lone death ever could. They serve to remind us that the corrupt architects of power are afraid of being challenged, pursued, and exposed for what they are. Their real power is in manipulating and hypnotizing the public into believing that they are powerless to challenge their authority, which resides solely in the illusionary perception of the masses. And, when their power is unmasked, challenged, or otherwise usurped by an intrepid individual that attempts to wrest power away from the evil and greedy few in order to distribute it more equitably among the masses, this brotherhood of darkness, in all its many guises, isn’t against using bribery, treachery, threats of violence, and even murder itself to achieve their ends as you’ll soon see.

But, when enough people stand up to this monster (especially the monster of fear that resides in all of us) and confronts these people head on, they will inevitably be vanquished, since we far outnumber them and most of their power exists in the fear-based victim mentality our own minds besides. We still must not forget that these people have no moral inhibitions against killing as many people as it takes to preserve their rank and power. So, while compassion and conscience are what distinguish “us” from “them” quite often, we naturally shouldn’t fool ourselves into thinking these people are wholly like ourselves, insofar as they often lack those attributes that make them feel empathy for their fellow human beings.

Nothing should be construed here as prima facie evidence, as even here there are probable murders that don’t warrant a conspiracy to explain them (as in the case of Eugene Mallove). And, neither can it always be said that every victim is a hero, insofar as they aren’t always savory characters themselves (as the case of Roberto Calvi clearly shows). However, by and large, the following list of people are worthy of our admiration, respect, and love as those, who paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives so that “we the people” might live more conscious, rewarding, and healthy lives as a result of their courageous endeavors. What follows represents a tiny list of some of the more well-known mysterious deaths of truth-seekers, who met with an untimely end at the hands of various agencies usually in order silence their potent message of truth. May their memory serve to remind us of this as we ponder their legacy. And, in no particular order, they are:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Under Siege with the Bundy’s and the BLM: Shades of Waco, Ruby Ridge, and the Fight Against Federal Fascism of the 1990s

That Which is Tyranny by Jefferson

The latest standoff between federal agents of the Bureau of Land and Management (BLM) and Nevada cattle rancher, Cliven Bundy, is coming to a head around the same time that another standoff ended in catastrophe and bloodshed some 21 years ago on April 19th. I’m speaking of course of the splinter group of Seventh Day Adventists, known as the Branch Davidians, whose compound was raided by the ATF and FBI back in 1993 in what would end in fiery tragedy for some 76 members of the church including 23 children. Thanks to the tireless work of many investigators into the Waco tragedy…we now know that the CS gas that was shot into the compound by the Bradley tanks was highly flammable, and this (of and to itself) could have started the massive fire once it was exposed to any kerosine lamps, pilot lights, or candles inside the building.

However, there is also evidence that the FBI actually started the fire by using flash grenades in multiple parts of the compound. While this may appear to be somewhat controversial, based on what we know about the provable corruption, coverups, and criminal acts of the FBI…this should come as no surprise as I’ll clearly show. So, for instance, as the Waco compound was burning to the ground, Branch Davidians were being shot at from the back of the building by what were later determined to be Special Forces snipers, including members of the elite Delta Force. How do we know this? We know that there were shots being fired at the back of the compound as it was going up in flames because of the analysis of the FLEER video, which shows heat signatures of what can only be rifle muzzle flashes.

Waco Compound Burns

Also, it is worth noting that a subsequent investigation by the Texas Rangers on the scene showed bullet holes entering a double door in the back, but this door was seized and promptly “lost” by the FBI. Again, this is not a “conspiracy theory” but is historical fact. One of the lead investigators of the Texas Rangers at Waco was Joaquin Jackson, who later retired in disgust over the whole sordid affair. However, don’t expect the media to tell you what really transpired at Waco. There are tantalizing clues, however, if you know how and where to look.

One such clue that I came across recently was Dick Morris, who told Sean Hannity of FOX that Janet Reno blackmailed Bill Clinton to giving her a 2nd term as Attorney General or else she would “tell the truth  about Waco”. What did she know about Waco besides the fact that she and the FBI had a lot of innocent blood on their hands? The only thing that makes any sense is that Bill (and possibly Hillary) Clinton also knew and probably even ordered the compound be torched on the 51st day of the siege. Unfortunately, Morris doesn’t clarify just what Reno knew, and we’re left with a juicy clue and nothing more.

ATF Goon Squad

It’s instructive that we begin with the Clinton presidency, though, since that’s when we saw a great rise in governmental over-reach of federal power against individual citizens, who were targeted merely for being 2nd Amendment advocates, outspoken about federal centralization of power, or just plain “different” enough to draw the attention and ire of the Feds. This took on an almost maniacal and feverish pitch when the Oklahoma City bombing occurred in 1995 and was quickly blamed on so-called disenfranchised anti-governmental militia types as Timothy McVeigh was claimed to have been.

However, anyone that has studied the Oklahoma City bombing with any real depth can see that the building’s debris was blown out from the inside rather than from the outside inward with a Rider truck filled with a 1,200 lb. fertilizer bomb. There are several affidavits that attest to there being at least two other bombs “inside” the the building that day, including one by Tiffany Bible who swore that she spoke with an ATF agent that told her the Murrah building was destroyed because of retaliation for the Waco debacle. Many of the records of the Waco investigation were being housed in the Murrah building when the lead investigator moved them to Oklahoma City. However, none of the ATF personnel were in the building at the time, which strikes me as very oddly convenient. Meanwhile, the initial reports coming out of the local media describe two unexploded bombs being taken out from inside the building. So, there’s a lot more to the story than what we’ve been told, and I encourage you all to go watch the excellent documentary film “A Noble Lie” should you want to learn just what that other stuff is.

Suffice to say, McVeigh (who asked directions on how to get to the building beforehand) was clearly nothing more than a FBI/ATF stooge patsy that took the fall in order to demonize the “patriot movement” and other champions of the constitution as well as states’ rights over federal power. So, he was blamed for the thing, and Bill Clinton was able to pass the “Anti-Terrorist Act” in 1996.

Another gut-wrenching story of one man’s courageous fight against encroachments from the federal goon squad agents of the ATF and FBI occurred in the Ruby Ridge case of the Randy Weaver family of Idaho. Here again, federal agents were using an informant to entrap Randy in an “illegal weapons” charge and attempting to drag him into court over a sawed-off shotgun. They staked out his property, harassed his children (just as the BLM has with the Bundy’s), and even shot the family dog. Unfortunately, after they shot the dog, Randy’s 14-year-old son Sammy was killed, when he exchanged fire with the federal agent that killed his beloved pet.

Randy Weaver

Idaho ( much like Montana) was known to have stalwart ranchers and farmers, who distrusted their corrupt government and clearly had a “Don’t Tread on Me” attitude. That’s why the Weaver family had their community’s support from the beginning of their ordeal to the horribly tragic conclusion, when Randy Weaver’s wife was shot between the eyes by an FBI sniper as she held her infant in the doorway of their house. Even the corrupt FBI agent had to admit his heinous crime in this case and settle with Randy for $3.1 million in a subsequent lawsuit that he filed against them for the wrongful death of his wife.

However, I don’t care how much you’re able to get in a lawsuit after the fact…nothing, absolutely nothing can ever make up for losing your wife and one of your children! These are the kinds of crimes of the state that were infuriating a small but growing handful of mostly rural people in the US during the 1990s, who were dismissed by the mainstream media as crazy “conspiracy theorist”  domestic terrorists.

At one point, the infamous inventor of the “magic bullet theory” Warren Commission member, Arlen Specter, chaired a congressional hearing about the rise of militia groups in America that had grown in response to tragedies like Waco and Ruby Ridge. You can tell that he’s clearly incredulous to the outcry and claims being made by the various militia men, concerned patriots, and constitutional attorneys on the video. However, since he was a part of the coverup of the JFK assassination, this should come as no surprise. One surmises that he (along with the US congress, White House, and various alphabet soup agencies) were looking at these courageous men as “threats” to the attempt being made to slowly turn this country into a slavish, technocratic, corporate-socialist police state, which is exactly what happened and accelerated into hyper-drive post 9/11.

Under Siege

One must realize that with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989 and the fall of the Berlin Wall…the Military-Industrial-Complex had to find a “new enemy” to keep the money flowing into their coffers, and this meant that, even if a huge existential threat and enemy was imaginary, the important thing for the US hegemonic war machine was to have something to be able to justify their enormous Pentagon and National Security State budgets. That’s why “terrorism” was chosen as the new “existential” enemy that can and would not ever be eliminated. After all, terrorism is a strategy of fighting (largely poorly armed people against standing armies) and therefore it’s not even a legitimate external enemy as such. Also, when big powerful countries like the US invade a smaller country like Iraq (as it did in 2003) under false pretenses, there is quite naturally going to be a violent backlash from the occupied people of that country attempting to throw off the yoke of foreign domination and control. So, all the US does is create legions of terrorists around the world every time it or its Israeli client state drops a bomb or fires a missile into the dwellings of “suspected” terrorists, who just as often as not end up being innocent men, women, and children that we derisively label “collateral damage”.

Now, let’s get back to Cliven Bundy and his fight against the BLM. While it’s fairly obvious that he was pushing his luck in not paying the grazing fees for his cattle since 1993, he contends that it is “public land”, and he has more of a right to it than any federal agency. Of course, the idea of public land belonging to the public is just that…an idea and largely a false one at that. The state of Nevada, in particular, is almost all government-owned land. And, even if you think you own a piece of property, tell me this- “Why (assuming that you own it) would you need to pay property taxes on it year in and year out?” What happens when you refuse to support the psychiatric public school system and decide that you’re not going to pay? Obviously, you’re going to lose what was never really yours to begin with.

However, let’s concede that Mr. Bundy does in fact have the right to the land, since he’s the one that lives there and raises his cattle on that land. This hearkens back to the days of the great migration westward when pioneers were allowed to lay claim to a piece of real estate so long as they built a home there, tilled the soil, or raised animals on the land. And, in that respect, yes Cliven Bundy certainly does have (under those settler’s conditions) more of a right to the land than a third party governmental agency, whose dubious role in the desert Southwest has been far less than stellar. The BLM, to my mind, are nothing more than a bureaucratically meddlesome bunch of control freaks, who showed their true colors in the wild horses scandal that has been ongoing now.

One certainly has to wonder whether or not the reasons for the harassment under the approval of Clark County’s sheriff and Sen. Harry Reid is really nothing more than a land grab situation, where the Bundy ranch just so happens to sit on what some oil and gas company want to frack or a mining company wants to dig. After all, one of the largest gold mining companies in the world, Barrick, have several major operations in Nevada. And, according to investigative journalist, Greg Palast, they were able to practically steal the rights to the largest known deposits of gold in this country for a mere $10,000 and turn it into $10,000,000,000 in pure profit. That’s $10 billion dollars that went to a Canadian company and was given a big assist by George H.W. Bush Sr., who just so happened to be given a multi-million dollar consulting job after he left the White House. That’s big money, people, and I can guarantee that if the Bundy’s are sitting on what some might think is even a fraction of this kind of wealth…I wouldn’t doubt it when Harry Reid says- “It’s not over.” Interestingly enough, one of Senator Reid’s largest campaign contributors over the years has been a mining company called Newmont that are involved in a joint venture with Barrick in Nevada.

The Order of the Skull and Bones and the Pathology of Elitism in American Life

Skull and Bones Brotherhood of Death

It’s been a long time since my last article, and there’s obviously a lot going on in the news (as ever). However, before we can even begin to understand the insanity of world events and geo-politics, I think that it’s important to focus on some of the more powerful characters and organizations whose decisions have global consequences. Para-politics or what some have dubbed the “conspiratorial” version of history, as opposed to the more standard accidental version of history, has always been concerned with certain powerful families, bloodlines, secret societies, etc. So, periodically I’m going to cover some of these shadowy groups, rogue confabs, powerful families, and various secret societies.

Perhaps I should preface this by saying that “not all secret societies have sinister purposes”. So, for instance, I personally don’t believe that members of the Order of the Golden Dawn, the Odd Fellows, the Rosicrucians, or even the vast majority of the Freemasons are “evil” or “have sinister designs” against the public at large. In fact, quite the opposite is true in many cases where lodges such as the local Shriners, Elk Club, or Scottish Rite Freemasons are engaged in philanthropic endeavors such as funding children’s hospitals and raising money for various charitable causes. Their work is to be commended. However, there are some that do have ulterior motives that could be labelled as sinister and who couldn’t care less about charitable efforts but rather only support other members, often to the detriment of others.

And, perhaps none is more infamous in that regard in this country than the “Brotherhood of Death”…otherwise known as the Order of the Skull and Bones. First, we should look at a bit of the history of Skull and Bones and trace its legacy up to the present day, where it’s members (usually no more than about 800 members alive at any given time) are virtually guaranteed success in their chosen fields. Historically, we know that the Skull and Bones Society was founded in 1832, and it was officially incorporated by the Russell Trust Association (named for William Huntington Russell) in 1856. Even today, the Russell Trust Association (RTA) practically owns Yale University, much of New Haven, Connecticut, and through fellow Bonesmen have controlling interests in many of the country’s financial institutions. According to historical accounts, the old wealth gained by the Russell Family was largely through international finance and through opium trafficking into mainland China. Previously, I discussed a bit of this history in my article dealing with “Operation Golden Lily and the Secret Legacy of the Black Eagle Trust” that mainly dealt with Japan’s looting of Asian treasure during WWII. But, before Japan’s rape of Nanking, there was British colonization and political subjugation through the opium dens that even had the Emperor hooked at one point.

William Huntington Russell

So, keep that in mind in regards to Skull and Bones. During the 1830s, William H. Russell traveled to Germany and became involved with a fascist “Death’s Head” Germanic secret society that some have speculated was a remnant of the Illuminati, which was also born in Bavaria in 1776 by a former Jesuit named Adam Weishaupt. The Order of the Illuminati were a so-called Enlightenment era secret society interested in the abolition of all religion and sought to infiltrate the lodges of Europe and even America in their goal of establishing a “One World Government” under their control and direction, of course, as “perfected and illuminated individuals”. Unfortunately, the very word “Illuminati” has become synonymous with a catchall scapegoat for all things conspiratorial. Be that as it may, even though mainstream historians consider the Illuminati as having gone extinct by 1787, it is possible that they continued under other names and absorbed themselves into various masonic lodges, which is what George Washington warned against in his commencement address to the nation.

The Skull and Bones was therefore a chapter of a sinister Germanic “Death Cult” secret society (of which we know very little about) that researcher, Anthony Sutton, simply called “The Order”. To elaborate further, Skull and Bones is known as Chapter 322 (32 stands for the year it was founded and the last 2 stands for the chapter number), which would imply that there are other chapters of the same organization. Are there other chapters of “The Order” elsewhere? Chapter 323? 324? 325? etc? While one can’t say for certain, I don’t doubt that they do (in all likelihood) exist. To gain a greater understanding of just what this “Order” is and it’s agenda, I highly recommend you listen to the author of America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of the Skull and Bones Society, Anthony Sutton, speaking in a rare television interview about this very subject before he died.

Introduction to the Order of the Skull and Bones book coverSecrets of the Tomb

Alexandra Robbins in her book Secrets of the Tomb, David Icke, Jim Marrs, and Ron Rosenbaum, who writes for the New York Observer, have pretty well all either stated or alluded to the idea that Skull and Bones is a kind of eugenics-inspired elitist society that functions as a springboard in funneling specific bloodlines into positions of power that one could liken to “the Eastern Establishment”. In other words, even though Skull and Bones only taps 15 students during their Junior year at Yale to be members, those who do accept and complete their initiation into the society invariably go on to become some of the most powerful and influential people in the country. We’re talking senators, supreme court judges, media moguls (Henry Luce founder of Life Magazine), captains of industry, high ranking members in the intelligence agencies particularly CIA, and even US presidents (William Howard Taft, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush). On this last point, we even had a situation back in 2004 where both presidential candidates were Bonesmen, John Kerry (class of 1966) and George W. Bush (class of 1968).

Bush and Kerry Both Bonesmen

Unfortunately, practically nobody in the mainstream media ever called attention to this rather shocking fact, with one of the sole exceptions being the late Tim Russert on his morning show. And, on both occasions, Russert’s questioning was simply laughed off and not really dealt with. How can you have two members of the same elite secret society running the US presidency and still think that you live in a constitutional republic, where your vote actually counts for something? Just where do you think their true allegiances lie? With the public? They always consider themselves Bonesmen first and foremost before American or Christian ever enter into the equation, assuming they ever do.

Now, let’s consider the kind of men that are forged inside the ominous brown sandstone building known as “the tomb” cryptically situated on the Yale University campus. While there’s a lot that remains unknown about what exactly takes place inside the tomb and during their macabre hazing rituals, those that have broken the Omerta code of silence about Skull and Bones have told stories of skeletal remains decorating the inside of the tomb, of scream inducing psycho-dramas, and a kind of ritualized brainwashing of members as superior that must use war and terror to manipulate the masses. Prescott Bush, grandfather of George W. Bush, even went grave digging with fellow Bonesmen and absconded with Geronimo’s bones that are still thought to be hidden somewhere at Skull and Bones’ Tomb headquarters.

Skull and Bones Tomb

Along with being morbidly obsessed with death, Skull and Bones is also virulently fascist, racist, and misogynistic…even though they have finally started begrudgingly letting in a few minorities and women. However, former Bonesmen and arch conservative personality, William F. Buckley, spoke out against letting women in because he felt it would inevitably lead to “date rape”. Plus, it’s doubtful that most women would have the stomach for things like circle jerks, mud wrestling, and mock sacrifices that are reported to be taking place inside the Tomb. In one example of a kind of sexual “confessio” called “connubial bliss”, new members must give an accounting of all of their former sexual partners and ostensibly all the juicy details, while they lay naked in a coffin. In another psycho-drama, neophytes are yelled at and abused by Bonesmen, who force them to kiss skulls and perform mock ritual killings. Ron Rosenbaum (who secretly recorded this particular scene on top of nearby rooftop) has talked about some of these psycho-dramas being performed with Bonesmen dressed up as the “Devil”, the “Pope”, and a “Don Quixote” type character.

According to Anthony Sutton, Skull and Bones have adopted a Hegelian and Machiavellian philosophy, wherein they see themselves as “superior” to the rest of mankind and must dominate, control, subjugate, and manipulate the masses in order to rule effectively. This is done with what David Icke calls the strategy (Problem-Reaction-Solution) or what Sutton refers to as (Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis). The idea is to cause a problem (thesis) in order to get a reaction (antithesis) from the public so that you can bring about the solution (synthesis) that you had designed to incorporate all along. A good example of this strategy at work is with the so-called “War on Terror”, which is complete misnomer and sham from the start predicated on the false-flag event of 9/11.

Without delving into the specifics of the 9/11 inside job that I’ve covered (and will again) in explicit detail, after the Cold War ended…the National Security State needed a “new enemy” to bring about the goal a total global fascist state. And, by any standard of measurement, this is exactly what’s happening that (I maintain) is by design done covertly using the very methodology and strategies that I’ve been outlining. Skull and Bones represents an extremely telling case study and model example of the pathology of elite stratagems, which lead to the kind of greedy, bigoted, parasitic, corrupt, and supremacist attitudes that eventually spread to a societal level. This is the real legacy of Skull and Bones and secret societies like them. And, from my perspective, it is symptomatic of what I would call a cancer on the body politic, which ends up destroying not only the host but itself right along with it.

The Hidden Functions of Schooling and a Population Engineered for Obedience

Ivan Illich What School Is

The avenues whereby man may elevate his consciousness to, as Rene Decartes would say, “Know Thyself” as something truly unique in the world and apply himself, diligently, patiently, honestly in the pursuit of greater happiness and service to his community, his tribe, his nation, his race of fellow human beings is a noble pursuit to be sure. And, I have no problem with that function, if you will, of education. I do have a very big problem with the the insidious institution of modern public schooling, though. Besides the fact that the US public school system is an utter and complete failure, in every imaginable way and standard of measurement, nobody ever seems to ask whether or not the abject failure that every new teaching program, standardized testing regimen, and methodology imposed by government bureaucrats instituted is actually meant to fail, since the true function and purpose of public schooling hasn’t been discerned by the greater part of the population of this country. Is it really complete heresy to suggest that whatever the government sets up…it gets, or else it wouldn’t continue with it?

I’m not even talking about the notion of academic failure, although the US is known to rank towards the bottom or a mediocre middle of the industrialized world in nearly every conceivable category. What I’m referring to is really a failure of imagination, both our own as adults and the crippling of our children’s innate imagination to envision an idyllic and magical world where their parents see only money, duties, and the desire to control every aspect of their kids’ behavior. However, as ignorant and inhumane as many parents are in the US, they at least love their children even if they don’t always show it. And, while their methods are often faulty, conditioned, and laden with neurotic baggage, one could argue that their heart is in the right place. They want what is best for the kids in life or at least what they think is best.

School administrators, psychiatrists, and teachers (on the other hand) have no such stakes in the futures of the children in their charge. It’s usually just a “job” for them. And, while many take on the roles of surrogate mommies and daddies during school hours, they don’t have the time to compensate for what’s lacking at home, and at best they’re merely glorified baby sitters. Most Americans are so totally clueless about what is being done, it would be comical almost, if it didn’t involve so many millions of lives being mentally impaired. That’s what former New City and New York State “Teacher of the Year” several years running said about the function of public schooling. I’m speaking of course of the illustrious and quite erudite former teacher turned author/speaker/activist against schooling, John Taylor Gatto. He makes the case that the function of public schooling is to “reduce children’s capacity to think”. Other functions of “schooling” include prolonging adolescence (even the term itself didn’t exist prior to the advent of compulsory schools) as well as the “adaptive” principle, whereby the mind and behavior of the child is molded to fit the designs of governmental/corporate/psychiatric interests. If you question this, by all means be sure to read John Taylor Gatto’s superb article that he penned for Harper’s Magazine several years ago that explains these functions far more eloquently than I have.

And, to accomplish these goals, schooling has introduced such Pavlovian measures as the “bell system”, which breaks a child’s concentration in his/her studies in one class so they can be shuttled off to another one. No inter-disciplinary understanding takes place, naturally, between subjects that are even obviously linked such as History and Political Science. Questioning is reduced to a bare minimum, and the grading system creates an artificial and irrelevant barometer that is used in the stratification among good, mediocre, and bad students with all the idiotic stigmas that those “labels” imply. In essence, crucial elements in the full flowering and development of the child such as creativity, independent  discernment, higher-order thinking, multi-age cooperative learning, and the achievement of “real world” goals are screened out of the curriculum…assuming they were ever there to begin with. And, these are substituted with rote-memorization drills, multiple-choice testing, and the boring tedium of being forced to take notes based on ramblings of some dim-witted teacher giving a practically, socially, and philosophically-irrelevant lecture that will be largely forgotten about by the next day of class. As a general rule, the teacher’s college is usually the least rigorous and easiest academically of all of the departments and as such tends to both draw and produce the most boorish bunch of neurotic nitwits imaginable to “teach” your kids. Is it really any wonder that the US education system is in crisis?

How did it get to this obviously lowly status and point? As Gatto explains, the American version of the social engineering of minds in the public school system came into existence towards the middle part of the 19th century, when the country of, what was then, Prussia decided to regiment their society according to the Hegelian dictates of the state. Through a system of mandatory enrollment in state-run schools, Prussia would force previously free-thinking children to orient themselves to operate as an obedient, collective tool for the state. This would then preclude many in the population, who in adulthood might abandon the state when they fought another war, as they were often doing. So, Prussian schooling was really a psychological indoctrination program, whose purpose was to ensure plenty of cannon fodder for the state. And, it worked like a charm.

This in turn was the system that was praised, celebrated, and finally implemented in the US by pedagogs such as Horace Mann and John Dewey. By the early part of the 20th century, modern public schooling began to take shape, albeit with another function in mind. It was around this time that the Industrial Revolution was coming into full swing and the industrial corporate business class decided that public schools should become the breeding grounds for a new kind of man, who would be willing to give up simple agrarian life and commit himself to the repetitive tasks that industrial labor would impose upon the worker of the 20th century. School was to act as a coercive adjunct not merely of the state but also of the corporation, whose ascent has made it the dominant institution of the last 100 years.

State control isn’t necessarily mutually exclusive from corporate control. They’re merely different masks of authority and domination over an individual’s life, and what the state always seeks is to create a sense of general collectivization among its ranks just as a corporation desires for its low-level workers to collectivize themselves around the principle of obedience to the productive edicts of the corporation. They standardize, regiment, and homogenize experience just like an army might do only for different purposes…one for war and the efficient slaughter of foreign peoples and the other for the peaceful consumption of consumer goods. Therefore, is it really just a coincidence that “Universal Public Schooling” just so happens to be one of the planks of the Communist Manifesto? Now might be a good time to ask- “Was the US hijacked by a communist agenda?” This is a difficult question to answer definitively, but one could argue that while transnational corporate elites exert the traditional influence from behind the scenes in government as they always have…even so-called communist nations aren’t purely communist in the sense of everyone being equal in status and material goods. However, both capitalists and communists would agree that in order to maximize profits for corporate capitalists and fit individual cogs into the cold machinery of state bureaucracy, strict obedience of the masses is key. And, while the cop can always hold a bludgeon over the heads of the unrelenting, longevity depends on mass mind-control and propaganda, particularly of the youth that will inherit it all.

Certainly, one of the more interesting interviews in this regard ever conducted was an interview that G. Edward Griffin, author of the definitive history of the Federal Reserve The Creature from Jekyll Island, had with Norman Dodd right before he died. This interview is an important puzzle piece in the annals of history and is certainly germane to the history of American schooling. Norman Dodd was an investigator for an extensive congressional inquiry into the role and agenda of tax-exempt foundations. And, he was able to discover that one of the primary objectives of the Rockefeller Foundation was to spread the tenets of “collectivist doctrine” through the institutions of American life with a specific focus on controlling the curriculum of the public school system, so that the US could be turned into a collectivized psycho-civilized state. Foreign countries would be targeted using the Carnegie Endowment, which is named after the steel baron Andrew Carnegie. I encourage all of you that haven’t seen it to go watch the video to this excellent interview on YouTube. If you haven’t got to patience to watch the whole hour, however, I suggest you skip to the 28 min mark, where he talks about what I just did in relation to the control of the public school system. Certainly, if you do have kids, be a “smart” parent, pull them out of the public schools, and either home school them yourself or enroll them in a small alternative like Summerhill, where children actually get to choose what they want to learn and aren’t forced to learn what they couldn’t care less about and isn’t applicable to their lives.

Why You Have to Go to School


Roxas’ Golden Buddha, the Chiasso Affair, and the Trillion Dollar Law Suit

 

Hundred Million Dollar Bonds

I my previous blog post, I gave you some background to a very little known story about Imperial Japan’s looting of Asia during WWII and the subsequent burying of vast amounts of gold and other treasures of the Orient in the Philippines. This secret campaign of plunder, particularly of China, was organized by Emperor Hirohito’s brother, Prince Chichibu, and was called “Operation Golden Lily”. When the US was able to take control over the Philippines during the crucial Pacific theater under the leadership of Gen. Douglas McArthur, they heard enough rumors about hidden cached gold bullion buried in the surrounding caves, hillsides, and underground tunnels to investigate further.

Having tortured the driver of Japanese General Yamashita, a then 37-year-old Captain Ed Lansdale and Santa Romana were able to locate several sites containing billions in gold, diamonds, and priceless works of art. President Harry Truman kept this quiet, though, and this gold would end up in some 44 countries around the world in around 172 accounts to help the US and its allies fight communism, rig elections, fund political campaigns, bribe public officials, and maintain US strategic and financial hegemony.

And, this is where the story gets very interesting, since the legacy of this stolen treasure (running into the trillions) goes all the way to the present day and collectively is known as the Black Eagle Trust. After all, massive secret slush funds were created to finance various political purposes (including the infamous M-Fund). So, let’s pick up the story from there. One of the few places you are able to read about the history of “Operation Golden Lily” is in Sterling and Peggy Seagrave’s book Gold Warriors. If you’re not sure whether or not you should pick up a copy, I encourage you to read a good review of this riveting book by Counter Punch (here). The brief synopsis of the book on Amazon reads:

“In 1945, US intelligence officers in Manila discovered that the Japanese had hidden large quantities of gold bullion and other looted treasure in the Philippines. President Truman decided to recover the gold but to keep its riches secret. These, combined with Japanese treasure recovered during the US occupation, and with recovered Nazi loot, would create a worldwide American political action fund to fight communism. This ‘Black Gold’ gave Washington virtually limitless, unaccountable funds, providing an asset base to reinforce the treasuries of America’s allies, to bribe political and military leaders, and to manipulate elections in foreign countries for more than fifty years.”

Another great investigator that has written about this fascinating story, along with a lot of other deep financial skullduggery, is David Guyatt, who worked in the financial sector. If you really want to dig further into this suppressed WWII history, I recommend that you be sure to read his excellent article, The Spoils of War: The Secret Story of WWII Japanese & Nazi Gold.

Secret Gold Treaty

Roxas’ Golden Buddha

Now, during the dictatorship of the Ferdinand Marcos regime, there lived a simple, hard-working man named Rogelio “Roger” Roxas, who claimed that he was given a treasure map in 1961 by the son of a Japanese soldier. Ten years later, Roxas was able to take a small group of men to the site on the map, where he successfully unearthed a sizable cache of treasure including gold bullion. Along with this, he managed to remove a solid gold Buddha statue that he took to his house and demolished the entrance, with plans to return later once he raised the money to remove the rest of the gold. He then went about trying to find a buyer for the gold Buddha. When a prospective buyer appeared, he agreed to buy it and seemed to take an unusual interest in the neck. After he left, Roxas and his brother examined the neck area more closely and realized that the head twisted off the body. Once removed, they were astonished to see the statue was hollow and filled to the brim with diamonds, both rough and polished.

Shortly after this meeting, Ferdinand Marcos sent one of his goon squads into Roxas’ home, where they stole his gold, the Buddha, and any other valuables he had. He protested and was summarily tortured to try to get him to reveal the site of the buried treasure. After refusing to do so, he was imprisoned, escaped, and went into hiding. Afterwards, he filed series of lawsuits using the Golden Buddha Corporation (GBC) that was set up an American friend of his and later administered by his surviving family on behalf of Roxas’ estate. Unfortunately, he died under mysterious circumstances before he collect any remuneration from the law suit, which was determined to be valid. Roxas legal council, well-known LA attorney Daniel Cathcart, received a phone call from a CIA informant in Manila who reportedly told him:

“Your client is dead. He was poisoned. Imelda (Marcos, wife of Ferdinand) ordered it, and we did it.”

It took a total of eight long years of legal wrangling, but the Hawaiian Supreme Court in Honolulu finally decided in the Roxas’ family favor in 1996. They were awarded an amazing $40 billion, later reduced to $22 billion, with an additional $6 million in a separate settlement over Roxas’s false imprisonment and torture. And, for those of you that still think this story is bogus, ask yourself why (if there really wasn’t anything to it) the US 9th Circuit of Appeals would summarize the Roxas long legal battle with Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos in a statement that read:

“The Yamashita Treasure was found by Roxas and stolen from Roxas by Marcos’ men.”

Roxas’ story was even later made into an episode of Unsolved Mysteries, hosted by Robert Stack. You can watch them on Youtube #1 here and #2 here.

Roger Roxas and the BuddhaRoxas and Removed Head

The Chiasso Affair

Now, fast forward to the summer of 2009, and an extremely interesting incident occurred. Two Japanese men, named Yamagushi and Watanabe, were picked up on the Italian border in Chiasso, Switzerland. They were apparently working as a tandem on behalf of a group of international investors carrying an astounding $134.5 billion dollars in US treasury bonds! These bonds were confiscated by the Italian Financial Police after they were found hidden in a secret compartment of the two briefcases that they were carrying with them on a train traveling near the Italian/Swiss border. Hardly any news media bothered to actually cover this story, although strangely Glenn Beck picked it up briefly on his show. One of the only other American news outlets to cover (what should have been front page news all over the world) was Bloomberg. The question that never seemed to get fully answered in any of these reports (and the Italians, being good mafioso weren’t talking) was- “Were these real or counterfeit bonds?” If they were real, they represented around 1% of the US GDP and a major dumping of US bonds, and if they were counterfeit…they were obviously a very sophisticated (almost certainly government-funded) operation to manipulate the global bond market. In January of 2011, the Italian Military Police confiscated $20 billion in bonds determined to be counterfeit, and in February of 2012, after about a year of Italian/Swiss investigations into what was called “Operation Vulcanica”, at least eight people were arrested after a phenomenal $6 trillion in counterfeit bonds were seized from safe deposit boxes in Zurich. $6 Trillion represents a full 1/3rd of the US debt!!

Chiasso Incident Seized Bonds

Now, even though it is widely thought that these seized bonds were indeed counterfeit (especially the last two of $20 billion and $6 trillion respectively), a very big question remains to be answered in the Chiasso Affair. And, that would be- “If the 134.5 billion in seized bonds were fake, why were the two Japanese nationals not arrested and prosecuted by the Italian police for counterfeiting, particularly one of this sizable magnitude?” Instead, they were let go and allowed to leave the country…presumably going back to Japan. Needless to say, this is highly unusual and one that has yet to be answered to any degree of satisfaction, at least for me. After all, if the bonds were real, under EU law you would still be forced to report the importation of more than 10,000 euros, lest you face the prospect of losing 40% of your monetary assets. Another question that immediately comes to mind is- “Just who were these presumably Japanese men really working for and to what end?” This leads me to the last segment of this mystery that I believe is related, not merely to the Chiasso Incident but also, to the story of the vast stolen caches of gold bullion and other looted treasures of Asia that ended up in the Black Eagle Trust.

The Trillion Dollar Lawsuit

In November of 2011, Neil F. Keenan filed a law suit in New York federal court on behalf of the Dragon Family, which you can read in its entirety for free by going here. According to the suit, the Dragon Family is a conglomerate of very powerful Asian families that were given trillions in US bonds back in the 1930s in exchange for the “loaning” of gold to the Allied powers during WWII in order to protect it from being seized by the Japanese army during their looting of the Asian continent. The actual wording of the lawsuit as filed by Keenan reads:

“The Kuomintang appointed guardians of this gold and the securities issued by the United States who came to be known euphemistically as the Dragon Family. The Dragon Family is, in fact, a highly secretive and informal organization that operates between old families within China and Taiwan, above the political divide of the two independent Chinese governments.”

So, what exactly is the complaint? He is suing over the theft of $145.5 billion in bonds he claims were stolen from the Dragon Family as part of an elaborate scheme orchestrated two years earlier by some people in very high positions of power and influence, both within and affiliated with the Office of International Treasury Control. This little known organization is likened to a “shadow bank” that is wholly under the auspices of the United Nations. Here is a list of some of the defendants in this lawsuit:

The United Nations

Silvio Bersculoni (former Prime Minister of Italy)

Ban Ki-Moon (Secretary General of the U.N.)

Italian Republic

OITC (Office of International Treasury Control)

WEF (World Economic Forum)

Giancario Bruno (Head of the Banking industry of the WEF)

Needless to say, these are some very powerful people and institutions on the global stage, and it’s amazing to think that this suit would ever get filed…let alone go to court. However, you can verify for yourself that it’s indeed authentic by going to the PACER site, where (for a small fee) all court cases in the US are cataloged and check it out for yourself. However, I’ve provided it to you for free in the link above for your convenience. Even Court House News did a small report on this phenomenal lawsuit. Also mentioned in the text of the suit and connected with this case are “The Knights Templar”, “The Freemasons”, and “P2 (Propaganda Due)”, which is a right-wing masonic organization from Italy that have infiltrated much of high Italian society. Neil Keenan claims that the Dragon Family had entrusted him with directing this bond money into Private Placement Programs (PPPs) for unspecified global humanitarian efforts. Keep in mind as well that the $145.5 billion in bonds is what they were worth when they were originally issued back in 1934. Now, with all the accrued interest and the price of gold in today’s dollars, they’d be worth around $1.1 trillion dollars!

Another defendant in this monumental lawsuit is man named Daniele Dal Bosco, who supposedly represented the other defendants as a “trustworthy Vatican banker”. According to the wording of the suit, Dal Bosco claimed to know where the bonds were being held and was sent to Keenan to hold his bonds for “safe keeping”, where they could eventually be put into the PPPs for humanitarian causes. However, as the lawsuit alleges, “Dal Bosco sought assistance from various other sources and contacts, in order to act upon and perpetuate a fraud in connection with the sale or placement of the DFFI (bonds) in the global marketplace through stealth, conversion and bribery.” Later on, Keenan would be offered $100 million in bribe money to walk away from pressing the case any further and letting the bonds go. To his credit, however, he steadfastly refused this offer and has remained loyal to the Dragon Family.

While some have dismissed the bonds as fake, given that there are certain flaws and misspellings associated with them, true experts in the field of certification see this more as an indication of their authenticity, as it is a typical ruse used by the banks of issue as an excuse in not having to honor them. Keenan claims that there are markings on the bonds, which the Federal Reserve, UBS, and the Bank of International Settlements (the bank of all banks) in Switzerland would be able to look at and prove that they are indeed authentic. Suffice to say, this is a very nebulous, mysterious, complex, and increasingly conspiratorial case that has been covered by Benjamin Fulford and David Wilcock quite extensively and sensationally, since the story first broke back in 2011.

However, hopefully you won’t get too confused by all the conjecture and rumor-mongering from various websites and simply look at the facts of the case to make up your mind, which are quite astonishing enough. The last thing I’d like to report about this saga is that Neil Keenan has personally withdrawn the lawsuit due to “jurisdictional issues”, and he is currently in Jakarta, Indonesia working on it as you can see towards the end of this video. He also hopes to expand it further in order to facilitate a shutdown of what he sees as a global banking cabal to include the Federal Reserve Bank in the re-filing of the lawsuit, which of course he claims is coming soon but hasn’t specified exactly when. So, watch out for that one, assuming of course that he’s still alive!
